The ‘I haven’t updated for a while’ big, long post about lots of different things
Wednesday 18th January 2006 8:50 pm
I spent the weekend (ok, well, some of it) updating my website. I now have a contact form that works and I ended up with a ton of music videos to rec on there. I also reorganised my fanfiction page, so its actually grouped by fandom now! Plus I went through my drabbles and indexed them at the top of the relevant pages. As I was going through all of this I kept finding other, little, things I wanted to change. I've been thinking for a while that I want to go through and tweek some of the back-end stuff, perhaps I should actually get round to it.
Just after I uploaded it, I posted a new fic to Langford U - Divide and Subtract, which is a Sheppard and McKay friendship piece. I'm tempted to do some more with those two because they're so fun (although it was so tempting to go slashy!) and work my way through the rest of BODMAS (brackets of division multiplication addition subtraction = the order you evaluate an equation in, and is actually useful in my job!)
I really enjoyed Life on Mars on Monday. The DCI is so much like Burnside. I feel when he told Sam he had asked to transfer there that was important to the mystery of how he got to 1973 in the first place, although I have no idea how. I notice that, like Spooks, they've gone for the American style of starting with a bit of excitement before starting properly and telling us the names of the actors and giving us some pretty pictures. Which annoys me because it means you actually have to be ready at 9 o'clock, rather than just thinking about it. Unlike Spooks, though, they have actually kept the credits in and saved the trailer for next week till afterwards. The BBC are seriously pushing it, though - there was even a trailer for it before Doctor Who on BBC7 (which was the last one *sob*)
Last night we went to see Brokeback Mountain, which was very good and I really enjoyed. The only downside, apart from the 70s sideburns and that terrible moustache, was I couldn't always understand the Southern accents and as a result I have no idea of most of the characters names.
From the A people on my friends list - annmarwalk, avon and altariel - I am going to read my height in books this year. Because it is a good idea, and also because I'm only 5 foot 1 - which is 155cm in books, so shouldn't be too difficult.
And just to finish off, as I asked Una one of these:
Top 5 Meme: You post a topic, list, category, whatever, in my comments section (examples: "Top 5 Johns & Jacks on TV" or "Top 5 pairings in Atlantis"). Then, in a separate post, I'll post the answers to all your Top 5 ideas, according to me.

Your Life: The Movie
Tuesday 26th August 2003 2:14 pm
I have to admit to cheating there - I liked the Nicole Kidman answer I got when I used paranoidangel (same name) and the Orlando Bloom answer I got when I used paranoidangel42 (my lj name, since some other bugger got there first).
I realised that yesterday was the last bank holiday until Christmas. Which is depressing. Apart from today and Friday they're my last days off till October (although I'm not here for a third of November, so that's something at least). Unsurprisingly, the weathermen got it wrong. I dread to think how much crap I'll have tomorrow when I go into work and I have to take the Rotaract meeting tonight, which I could really do without. Specially as I have to go and write the minutes afterwards. And I need to re-read the first chapter of LOTR and write a drabble on it. I also have 7 CDs worth of Smallville and West Wing to watch. I could really do with not going to work so I have more time to fit my life in...
On the plus side, there's now a very nice Weatherspoons in Poole, Pirates of the Caribbean was good, Legally Blonde 2 was better than I expected, American Pie 3 wasn't.
