Forgot to rec this yesterday:
Darker Pieces of the Night, by [livejournal.com profile] zuben_eschamali, for [livejournal.com profile] spn_reversebang, J2 AU, NC-17, 16,488.
Inspired by some absolutely *amazing* art. A superhero AU, with winged!Jared (winged! Jared! ♥), an interesting world that felt unique, h/c, and intimate, personal explorations of the characters and the relationship that developed between them that you don't tend to find in a story about one or both as superheroes. I was so excited to read this after hearing about it earlier last week, and is one of those fics that I just *enjoyed* reading, that pressed so many of my buttons just right. Definitely on my reread list.

In other "news"...am indulging in night elf therapy in WoW again. Used to do this a lot in vanilla and BC, where when down or stressed, I'd honestly crave to start yet another night elf alt. Teldrassil is still my favorite starting area (sorry, Eversong Woods, you're a close second), and well, I can't help but feel that night elf female is still my favorite to play, as much as I love blood elves and draenei (sorry, Ak, but Sasukeh/Sasuke will always be my first main ♥). Though maybe that's colored by nostalgia. I just...it's so pretty, and the music's so soothing and beautiful, and I dunno. Nostalgia, like I said. Reminds me of when I fell in love with WoW back during the open beta for the original release. And it's familiar, so it's soothing like that, too. She's a warrior with long, dark blue hair named Yared, which may be the Hebrew form of Jared. :p Yeah, I know, I'm lame.

Hey, self. When you drink a bunch of rasberry apple cider, which is, you know, incredibly *red* and then go and brush your teeth, try to remember about the whole incredibly *red* bit. And not, you know, have a nice moment of panic that something in your mouth is bleeding. Dimwit.

Speaking of bleeding, hooray for fingernails. If not for those, I probably would have lopped the tip of my thumb off. I should be trusted with knives just about as much as I should be trusted with ovens. (Or toasters, per yesterday's incident that set off the smoke alarm after charring a split roll so bad the toaster had a cloud over it. I just... Yeah. /sigh)

Had gotten ingredients to do all the things from this http://theeconolodgediaries.blogspot.com/2010/06/another-arabian-night.html blog post last Friday pre-cold, so made myself start putting things together today. Really don't have the energy for it, but the stuff will go bad if I don't, and a good bunch of the vegetables and the meat were from that little farmer's market place (http://www.tomatotomato.org/) so that'd be a huge waste. All that's left is the potatoes, at least, and broiling the lamb patty things.

Edit: Ugh, must learn to not hit return while fussing with tags. Oh hey, it posted, what \o/

Anyway, heroic Putricide 10 down to 7% last night. So close. And totally unrelated, mmmmmm, Sam Jared Jared Sam, mmmmmmyeah. Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaah. ♥ Gives me a little sparkle. :)

People are awesome ♥ Thanks part two from yesterday, to [livejournal.com profile] psychelock, [livejournal.com profile] mysticwaters, [livejournal.com profile] ditta_spn, [livejournal.com profile] finnigan_geist, [livejournal.com profile] chyldeofnyte, [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte, [livejournal.com profile] lady_eilthana, and [livejournal.com profile] joseishijin for birthday wishes and messages. ♥ And thanks to [livejournal.com profile] keerawa and [livejournal.com profile] seisei_ftw for the vgifts (omg Katkat you gift-spammer! XD!) Honestly, you all made yesterday AWESOME. Group hug, right here, right now! ♥♥♥♥♥ I'm still all like ^______^ today.

And return fire Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] finnigan_geist! Back at ya! 8D

Anyway, there was birthday sushi yesterday, and an ice cream cake (despite Cold Stone's best attempts to have *lost* the order Mom called in earlier in the week--they were even kind of snotty and acted like she hadn't called or hadn't called that store, even when she showed them the date/time in her cel phone history >_< ). My brother and his gf sent and Amazon giftcard, Mom gave me a cast iron griddle/grill for the stovetop that I'd been eyeing (watching Food Network shows makes me want things D:), and the husband took care of both birthday and Christmas with a Wii. XD; Mom also did an early Christmas gift and gave me Super Smash Bros. Brawl since she didn't want us to just have the sports/sports resort games the base Wii system comes with. Eeeee, it is awesome and I am never going to grow up \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ Thinking of using the birthday $ from my Dad to get the WiiFit accessory and game, since I've wanted it for ages and could *really* use something for exercise. Though a balance board, I dunno...balance and I are NOT FRIENDS. D: We shall see.

Anyway ^^; This is my brain today: is thunderstorming, and after one particularly good roll of thunder, my brain chimes in "...thunder, Thundercats, hooooooooo!" And if that wasn't bad enough, while I was getting ready earlier, it started throwing SILLY thoughts at me, of Jared as Lion-O, Jensen as a dude!Cheetara (it's the freckles, I tell you :x), Sadie-Kit and Harley-Kat, and oh god, what is wrong with me. (And I can't decide if Misha would be a good Tigra, and I dunno for Panthro. One thing that's certain--Chad Michael Murray as Snarf. Or Mumm-Ra. Or both. Seriously, what the hell's wrong with me. XD;; )

Right. Enough foolishness for today. Or for now at least. :|
whitereflection: (sam :| herpexiaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
Okay. Okay, so I saw this, and it made me laugh.
Then my brain went "J2 fic involving Chad Michael Murray the sushi chef", and I laughed *hysterically* until I couldn't breathe. What gets me is that notes like that don't happen in a workplace unless it's already been done. *heeeeeee*

Old weird flash animation nostalgia, part go:

But, but, omg :x ♥♥♥ It does not help that backpack-wearing guy has dark curls under his hat, no it does not help at all. So very Sam-or-Jared-like, omg *flails* I just...*criminy*, this photo is just *begging* to be a fic prompt, I swear.

whitereflection: (winchesters coffee)
Oh em gee, I think my immune system finally woke up. Massive improvement, woo yeah \o/ Took advantage of actually having some energy today and have made a batch of that mulligatawny soup I like. Tired now, but criminy, stayed awake all day and got multiple things done, so I'm totally okay with that. Talking with almost no hoarseness is lovely.

old weird flash animation nostalgia, part the first:
I'd like to pretend that didn't make me snicker still, but I'd be lying. Way back when I first saw it, I laughed myself stupid. A reminder that my brain is obviously still a 12 year old boy.

Some peoples' blogs and journals are full of intelligent discourse, discussion, and nearly-academic essays. And then there's mine. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah.

Ugh, I am stressing about strange and minor things. I blame the coffee I had earlier, yet at the same time it's obviously worn off, because I'm absolutely drained-tired. >_< Yargh.

At least OPPD replaced the main power line, and Cox will be coming Friday to rerun their cable. Waiting for a tree service to come give an estimate and tell me when they can schedule work (obviously all are busy right now). We had more storm damage than I even realized after last Wednesday. Another branch that had been hanging finally broke off and fell yesterday, though it was thinner and shorter (like 3in at the base), and could be carried by just two of us--and at least it just fell into the yard, not on the lines or on the roof. Other branches are hanging though, and who knows what we don't see. Ugh.

[livejournal.com profile] motherlessguns is having a poet challenge where you pick a poet from the list, and find one of their works that fits the comm theme of being somehow Winchesters. This is a very cool thing, though when I picked Samuel Green, I didn't consider...make sure you can *find* their work. He's only got about 4 or 5 poems online, and neither of his books are available at B&N, the public library, or UNO's library. Not to mention, sold new, his current book is like 35$ at Amazon and 50$ through B&N. I gave in and ordered a used copy from Amazon, because at the least that's approx. 15$. :/ I shouldn't really spend, but I'll count it as my self-education on contemporary poets. Just hoping it's here before the challenge 'due' date of posting by Aug.1 (though Amz did say it would arrive by about the 23rd, so even with potential delays that should be okay).

I did buy a Wislawa Szymborska collection at B&N, though. >_> Still have another of hers on my Amz wish list, but I just kind of weakened on getting this one (view with a grain of sand) now. God, I'm so weak and stupid about resisting books.

[Edit: I keep wanting to find a collection of Richard Siken's work. Am I surprised that I can never find him at B&N, and he's not to be found at the public library or at UNO, despite it being an academic library? No, sadly I'm not surprised at all. Fucking midwest. I guess Crush goes on my Amz wishlist as well.]

Seriously awesome. Already also available as a standalone program for PC, and I'm eagerly awaiting when the Mac version is ready.

And speaking of flames... >_> I may have nearly set my oven on fire yesterday. I was reheating fried chicken from the grocery store deli, and I got the brilliant, *brilliant* idea that I would do so on one of my airbake-type pans to help crisp it up. The airbake pan with holes in it. Let's do the math...pan with holes, chicken that when reheated puts out a fuckton of oil and grease, gas oven...yeah. Filled the kitchen with a massive amount of smoke, and I have no idea how it didn't set my smoke alarms off. Awesome. I'm such an idiot. (And today I'm trying to 409 off the bottom of the oven over and over, so it's safe to run the self-clean cycle. At least I had the brains not to just go for the self-clean cycle right off, or I think there truly would have been fire involved.)

Off to James' D&D game today. Still wishing I could somehow switch my cleric out for a barbarian... >_>;

Day before yesterday during all the [livejournal.com profile] spnland comment spam challenge, I was in such a happy mood. Then yesterday it just all went poof so quick--meh during the day, and late got hit with an emo brick (and even dug out my old 'melancholy' iTunes playlist. Though some of that music is really good...) Want to hide in an unproductive mope, but promised I'd so something for someone today, so I can't.

I love the idea for that [livejournal.com profile] schmoop_bingo, and want to get a card, but they don't let you request to not get certain choices. And I really, really, really am not comfortable working with the topic of pregnancy, which they have on there of course (twice, I think, no three), and trying to do anything regarding kids/children (which there are a bunch of selections for) just would be so unfun I can't even explain it. I know you can get one bingo and ditch the card, but with so many choices being pregnancy/baby/child related, I get mental images of a card full of such and not being able to make even one bingo. >_< I feel like I'm the only person in the world that finds such topics the absolute opposite of schmoopy.

Good grief, I'm so stupidly down for no reason. This is ridiculous.

This is the best thing in the history of EVER. No way in hell should I be spending frivolously, but HELL YES I am getting that.

Imagine PMS is a semi-truck driven by a possessed dude, and I'm the poor little Impala. That pretty much explains why I'm all OMGWOE and WAH PEOPLE I LIKE SURELY CAN'T STAND ME and stupidity of that sort at the moment.

Also, am an impostor of a geek. Up until now I'd only seen a couple later episodes of the X-Files, plus its movie and pilot. A billion years late to the party, have finally started watching it with the folks that came over tonight. It is as awesome as I was told oh, fifteen years ago. Yeah.

Diane's super special, non-spoilery, one-word review of Iron Man 2? WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! \o/

After, friend Don treated us to late dinner at IHOP as a belated anniversary sort of thing. And after after, I made an absolute fool of myself. We were walking out of the restaurant, talking about who knows what (the conversation had covered various comic universes and meandered through Star Trek recent vs. original, Babylon 5, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force), and I managed to trip over the seam between two sidewalk squares.

Thanks to having been starting to step off the curb, trip led to swearing multi-stumble led to full 100% wipeout. I am awesome. Only reason I didn't end up shredding my hands and knees was I think I twisted left overcompensating to keep from falling off the curb and landed side first before front. Now to see if all the padding stops bruises or no. :p Various bits are freaking complainy, though (hello, wrists). As is my pride, considering that was all right along restaurant windows, as well as in front of the husband and the guys we were with. Haven't tripped so stupidly since my early high school days when I was still the sort of person to go on a youth group retreat, and did a full somersault tripping over air molecules while running through a motel parking lot with other kids.

Did I ever mention how I don't have depth perception/stereoscopic vision, technically? Yeah. (And someday I'll have to tell about what a great idea it was to sign up for softball when I was 11, from my best friend smacking me right between the eyes with a softball while we were playing catch, to the coach having yelling fits because I tended to swing while the ball was still a good five feet in front of the plate. Or not, that's probably all good enough story right there. :| )

Oh, John Stewart ♥ Oh, John Stewart, ILUUUUUUUUUU~~~ ♥ *sparkles* Ohman, I think I need a gif or animated icon of him dancing around at the end of that. ♥

And Mel, you are such an awesome, wonderful person. Truly ♥ Thank you *hugemassivehugs* I never do as cool things for you as you do for me, like that.

It is rainy and thunderstormy, all dim and humiddampearthgreen-smelling, and I love it. I swear all the trees just went leaf-crazy last week, like all BAM at once. And I noticed while driving that lilacs are blooming. ♥! Lilacs are only my favorite flower of all freaking time, and SOMEDAY I swear I will get some bushes going in the yard.

I noticed last night when trying to send something in WoW to my new alt on Bronzebeard, Sampala (Yes X3 God, I'm a dork--but Impala was taken on that server WTFFFF!! And by some undead guy, too THAT IS SO WRONG OMGWTF)--anyway, I noticed that one of the DotA members has a hunter alt with the name Samanddean ♥♥♥ I so went *SQUEE*\o/ and sent her an in-game mail saying hi. XD; I am amused at her other alt name (Belaruby, hee), and *cough*I may have snooped her LJ and noticed she watches the [livejournal.com profile] wincest community. What can I say, finding other fans that share some of my interests makes me happy. :<

Someone sent me a sugary bunny virtual gift :D :D :D I don't know who it was, but whomever you are, ilu~! ♥ It's so cute X3 Thankyou!

I need to find the link of it, but one of my uncles on my mom's side (one of her younger brothers) pointed her at a Youtube video he and some friends did of them blowing up a junk van with dynamite. Mom's family is odd like this, yes. This is my genetics. :| And he's one of the *good* crazy ones. (Though at times he's somewhat of a lazy, forgetful doofus, but anyway.)

In WoW news, I used the AV weekend to finally accomplish two goals I've had for Ak for a very, very long time. One was to get exalted with the AV (Frostwolf) faction (38th exalted--need Timbermaw and...something else now, for the 40 exalteds achievement). The second, was finally FINALLY getting the 100 mount achievement.

And the reward~! )

I have wanted the red dragonhawk for so very long--it's one of those in-my-own-head roleplay things. There are certain things important to him as a character, including the Wyrmrest Accord faction and his red drake mount, his black drake mount, anything to do with the Argent Crusade faction/Ashen Verdict faction and his standing as 'exalted champion' for such and title of Crusader. But most of all, his racial identity and loyalty to Silvermoon City (the rebuilt bloodelf capital). That red dragonhawk looks just like the ones in Eversong Forest in the bloodelf starting zones, and to me is iconic of the race. Thus it was something I wanted to really have a sense of him being "of Silvermoon City" (which is the title I've switched back to for the moment). Anyway. Yay ♥ (And getting the last 3 mounts I needed only took two grueling, grueling days of pvping in mostly AV with some Wintergrasp thrown in. Ohgod, all the losses, over and over and over and over, with so few wins, just to eek out the honor and the rep. Egads.) Also, yes I know it looks orange but is labeled red. Blizzard is colorblind (see 'violet' protodrake that is pink/fuschia).

Friends wandered over for the evening, spent more time playing the original God of War with Kelly spectating and Anj walking me through. Post title is something I said during the proceedings. :p Have gotten past the Cerberus fight, and left off in this godawful room where you're supposed to get into alcoves for chests before you get trapped in and impaled on spikes. The 'puzzles' or minigames or whatever you call it in GoW are designed by sadists, I think. I normally don't talk when I game, but this one has me going from "crapsticks" to "fucksticks" to "AUGHWTFWTFWTFshitshitshit!". But Anj says I'm picking up on it faster than she did her first run through, so go me or something. \o/ Random tangent--I love Kratos' Artemis blade. Love. After I first got that, I started cleaving mobs in two and decapitating things and it made me honest to god *giiiiiiiiiiggle* in glee. And it's pretty 8D (First sparking blue and now sparking purple X3 ♥) You can keep your dressy girl stuff--I want me a Big Ass Sword that's pretty and glowy and sparking/sparkling. 8D 8D (Or axe. Big Ass Axe also works. :3 )

P.S. also [livejournal.com profile] ysi_leftovers is my new best friend. :x Yes, I am very late to the party on this sort of thing I'M SLOW OKAY D: But omg muuuuuuusic music music music. I found so much yesterday >_> I will have to poke at it more soon. :3 (I do buy and will still buy, I promise \o/ This just...helps, with the whole not getting to do so often thing.)

So, WoW babblings and screenshot funtimes \o/

I have this thing about World of Warcraft, and that is it's a fantasy type game. So for me fantasy means you ride fantasy type mounts--creatures, that sort of thing. I sort of look askance at the helicopter those with the engineering profession make, but it's goofy enough that it looks steampunk and for some reason that fits fantasy still well enough or me. But a motorcycle...? Pshhh. I swore I never would for Ak because that seemed just silly, and also characters in robes look weird on it. But...there's this achievement for 100 mounts. And I'm working towards that (95/100 so far...)--and so I gave in. >_<

Ak + mechanohog = what. )

I...it is sort of growing on me. I can't help but giggle when he rides it, because it's all badass and has such a GRRRRARRRRRRRRR engine noise and yeah. ^^;

And finally got Wynnchester to level 20, so she could have her paladin charger mount. Which I thought maybe she should call Impala, but no, that's that fine lady here. So instead I think she'll call it Kashmir, because every good character given a Spn related name in a fit of geekery needs a mount named after a Led Zepplin song.

Wynnchester + Kashmir = I'm a dork. :|  )

Yeah, I'm a dork. \:B/ And to further emphasize that, D&D today. \o/

Really wincing at how manic I was yesterday. >_< Usually PMS sends me into a mood crash, but this time it was the exact opposite. Got so freaking manic that happy and excited became SO GODDAMN HAPPY and SO OMFG EXCITED at everything--and I swear my heart was racing all day. Being gleeful about stuff and the mocha while out with Mom just made it a bit worse. :< My apologies to any that got really hit with it yesterday--like those mile-long multiparagraph comments. I just couldn't stop *talking*, whether it was verbal or in text.

Anyway. Furnace got dealt with--something hadn't gotten tightened right when they put the blower back in the day before, thus rattling and rubbing metal sounds. Since it was a call-back from Monday, we didn't get charged again. The oven...the guy swears he can't find anything wrong. : / So we've got to call the utility company today to look the oven and the gas hookup over to see if they can find anything that would cause CO issues.

Wish the plumber would get here. Would practically pay money to have a chance to sleep just a little bit.

Whooooo thought it'd be a good idea to stay up until 5:20am reading fic when having to be up at 6? \o/ \o/ \o/ A winner is so me. Oh, self, your utter brilliance overwhelms. I hate when I get manic-y. (And why are you so weak for wingfic, self, whyyyyyyyyyyyyy...) Napped as the husband got ready for work, after dropping him off at work/before dropping off Mom at the outpatient place for the carpal tunnel surgery, and will probably nap a little more shortly. Do I know how to completely waste a day, or what? : /

It is stupid cold outside, with stupid wind chills. Stuuuuuuuuuupid.

It's still a bit startling to consider that even at the beginning of this week, we were still planning on a funeral today. But now there's not one--still have parts of my mind that still can't quite bend around that fact. Amazing, amazing. Anyway, the brother's in town with his girlfriend, as they'd already booked the flight in and figured they'd just turn it into an excuse to visit today. Will be a crowded day today, I imagine--I think my younger cousin's bringing her kids up as well.

Least my aunt's making a bit more sense again, since they took her off the Haldol. Though there was an interesting moment when her surgeon stopped in, and she told him she was frustrated because her body was so weak and she's having such trouble moving around (her physical therapy right now involves simply her sitting up on the edge of the bed). And he outright told her, "Well, that's because you nearly died. You got as near to dying as a person could get." I'm not quite sure if she really *understands* that yet. He and we may keep having to tell her, so that she'll be patient with herself and recover well, and not be too frustrated that she can't bounce up and walk out to go home *right now*. I wonder when she'll start asking to go have a smoke again. >_>; That should be interesting. Because yeah, noooot happening. But yeah, the surgeon also told her, "The whole hospital's talking about you." Might be an exaggeration, but all of her doctors are saying this is something they've heard happens, but had not in their careers ever seen for themselves.

Anyway. Finally finished listening to Muse's The Resistance CD, did so a couple times. Really dig it, and will probably listen a couple more times when I get a chance to figure out my favorites.

Finally, *finally* found a wallpaper of the boys I liked, after months of poking around (one by [livejournal.com profile] awakencordy at [livejournal.com profile] threelayers). And now I'm like in lust with my desktop or something. >_> It's distracting. Guh.*¬* )
