It's funny that the thing I was looking forward to doing most for [livejournal.com profile] spnland was writing, and ironically, what's the thing I haven't been able to do almost at all since it started? Yeah. Started out okay, but ever since.... Nearly nothing. Wouldn't even call it being blocked or locked up, because that implies there's something there to block or lock up. There's just really nothing in my head, writing-wise. And I'm gonna just laugh at myself for the whole "I wanna be a poet" thing, because yeah. To write as a career, you have to be able to, you know.... There's just no words, not for fan stuff, not for original projects.

Naturally, I actually had one idea for this one challenge due tomorrow (love letter from one character to another), and I was like yay and worked on it, and then realized the rules state it's got to be major, named characters and what I had won't work, not a bit. Sooo yeah. Awesomes. Least there's games there, because that's the only stuff I seem to be able to accomplish. That and voting on things.

I guess I could understand if I were just having trouble with character-focused things, because I'm a pretty lousy fan that just isn't as into secondary characters all that much, and some I'm outright *blah* on. I mean, yeah, I like Bobby and some others, but really if it isn't Sam or Dean (or okay, maybe the Impala), I just don't get too motivated. But there's been plenty of general writing challenges that don't demand certain characters, in which I could have written with Sam and Dean. Yet still no inspiration or success at motivating myself.

Then lately when I see everyone talking about their big bang projects, I get the little thought in my head of "Next year I'll try that!". Hey, self? Yeah. This is me pointing and laughing at you. LoooooooooOOOOOOOoooooooool. Pull the other one, it's got bells on. Dumbass.


At least I can accomplish things in WoW (Nin to 72, Sampala to 17), that's worth something right? Right? Yeah, didn't think so. :|

Yeah, that's pretty much me on the rare occasions I drink. And yet I still find it appealing every once in a while. :p

Hah. Another for the 'everything relates to Show' files.

I feel particularly uninteresting lately. \:|/

Thank you LJ, for stopping this 'being a prick' thing. Funny how easily annoyed I can be by a few extremely slow-to-load pages and 'failed to open page' messages.

This week thanks to a great deal of moisture in the air and fog due to the thawing, we've had some amazing frost and hoarfrost. I've never seen hoarfrost before, and it's absolutely amazing and gorgeous. Anj posted some pics of it on her blog the other day: http://randomstuffandwhatnot.blogspot.com/2010/01/frost-needles.html Way cool.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5670866/1/Unfinished. K Hanna Korossy, T, gen, The End tag, 2841 words.
So, K Hanna Korossy is probably my favorite gen Spn author of all freaking time. I could say that I check her profile weekly for new fic (she updates often), but that would be a lie, considering I reread her stuff multiple times a week, if not daily when I get on a rereading kick like lately. Her fics are so very well-written, so very in character, and it's obvious she cares about portraying them and their relationship, as well as the world of the show, right. I absolutely love love love her writing. (And yeah, she does some *excellent* hurt!boys stuff, without being silly about it even.) Someday I'll post my favorites of hers, and it will be a *list*. For now, just this one, because it deals with a few things I absolutely adore--such as the repercussions of a certain voicemail message, reunion ♥, angsty Sam, and just *boys*. ♥

Thursday, Thursday, Thursday~! \o/

[Edit: And thanks to Wikipedia-searching Peter Schilling's Major Tom because the song was on my mind (see post title), I stumbled on the Shiny Toy Guns cover of it and it is one of those Best Things Ever ♥♥♥ Oh, covers ♥ I'm so behind the times on discovering it (says it was used for some car commercial already), but that's somehow fitting, since that Major Tom was an 80s song I didn't discover until the late 90s, and Bowie's Space Oddity that Major Tom was based off was done in 1969 and I didn't first hear it until high school.]

bleh.

•Ushered in 2010 by listening to a couple people on the guild's Vent go from talking to heated discussion to argument, and logging off to flee that and reading bad fanfic until I realized at about 12:30 that oh yeah, it was the new year, wasn't it. Aaaaaaaawesome.

•Having Anj, Gina, and Kelly over today as our belated Christmas potluck. Only from 4-8, but man, I am really wishing I could just not. And just not on the extended family postponed-from-Christmas thing tomorrow. I start 2010 grumpy and very antisocial. Go me. (And just wait for Don's movie thing next Saturday all aft and evening \o/ woooo. *hermits* Good lord, I suck when I'm anti-people.)

•Been watching the self-rec event at [livejournal.com profile] sawedoff_recs and feeling grumblish at myself for not submitting any of the few Spn things I did. I had a couple things I felt okay about, why didn't I submit one. I'm such a dumb chicken.

•Looked out back when I hit bed about 2, saw 3 rabbits silhouetted against the snowdrifts (all eating the critter food in the dark). I wonder what omen or portent that is, to have that be the first thing seen at the beginning of the new year.

For a job that's 9-3, it'd be nice to get off at 3 more often. Funny how that works. I'm slow at it. So very slow (stupid 10keying, never knew how awkward I was at it...) And some sort of computer related problem totally fucked us the entire workday. I'm dreading the catchup involved, especially if they don't get it fixed soon (heard it was going on since Saturday). Guess I can't complain too much though--the usual him's work has been like 10+ hour days most days of the week, with time in on weekends too. Very balls (but lots of overtime pay, which helps).

Running into yet another Nickleback song that catches my attention. Weird, since I really don't like the band. And that new Rise Against one has been in my head for daaaaaays. I've been letting a lot (I mean all) of peoples' music sharings slip by, for some unknown reason. : / But did devour Halloweenish offerings from someone today. Really suits my mood. October is always the best and most awesome.

Rainy rain rain rain. Means emptying out the bird bath turned into squirrel feeder tomorrow. (Several bird/squirrel feeders out now, Mom motivates these things well). Anyway, off to make dinnerfoods.

Guild is all psyching up for Wrath release. And I'm very much realizing how utterly I screwed myself over by the job loss and what I have now. Instead of getting to take vacation time with everyone else to totally wallow in it, I'll catch bits and pieces in the evenings while everyone else blows past to 80 and I'm left soloing it all (least it's a pve server), and catching up with them fucking eons later when they're already bored with 10man Nax. : / Woo hoo. Hope there'll be the occasional kind person or straggler to help me with group crap when I finally get to it.
