I have to say, based on the adverts and all the build-up, I expected Downton Abbey to have been a bit more wrapped up last night than it turned out to be. I suppose Mary getting married was something, even if it did happen ridiculously quickly, but all their declarations of love fell a bit flat cos Henry's left no impression on me whatsoever and it felt like their wedding came out of nowhere. I know their romance has supposedly been building all season, but it hasn't felt like it. (In fact this is the first time all year I've actually remembered his name, which says a lot about how invested I've been in this storyline!)

At least they finally acknowledged that Mary might have some issues being married to a man who races cars when her first husband died in a car crash. Of course this only merited a short scene and then it was all forgotten again, but still. That's probably the best you can hope for with Downton now.

And I still think Bertie's going to go back to Edith. That's going to happen in the Christmas special. It has to.

Anyway, onto the November meme. Topic 5 is Favourite Romantic Pairing:

Now, I know I've been saying that pretty much every single topic so far is a tricky one, but this is definitely the hardest yet. Shipping is such a huge part of my fandom life and, as with TV shows, I usually go through stages of being super obsessed with a ship for a while before finding a new one and becoming super obsessed with that, but just because my super-obsession has moved on doesn't mean that I don't still love the old pairings or ship them any less. So rather than trying to pick one, I'm going to go with a top ten eleven in no particular order:

1. Eleven/River (Doctor Who)
2. Roslin/Adama (BSG)
3. Sydney/Vaughn (Alias)
4. Willow/Tara (Buffy)
5. Michael/Sara (Prison Break)
6. Chuck/Sarah (Chuck)
7. Xena/Gabrielle (Xena)
8. Castle/Beckett (Castle)
9. Max/Logan (Dark Angel)
10. Mulder/Scully (The X Files)
11. Brennan/Booth (Bones)

Even this was difficult and I keep thinking of other pairings that I could have put on the list. I may have a bit of a shipping problem...

From my 2010 Questions Meme: 6. What would you like to have in 2011 that you lacked in 2010? The Lego Hogwarts Castle. (lol, easily pleased!)

Today I built the Lego Hogwarts Castle. This year is already awesome!

Although not for my brother. He's halfway through a skiing holiday and today he phoned us from an ambulance! He'd fallen badly and called again later to give us the news that he's dislocated and fractured his shoulder. Ow.

In completely unrelated news, there's now a Battlestar Galactica Online game. I tried it yesterday but gave up after five minutes because it was so unbelievably boring. Maybe it would have been better if I'd been a Colonial. (I chose Cylon, not because I have a preference for them but because after being a Cylon almost every time I've played the BSG board game I've now accepted the inevitable truth that I am in fact a total frakking toaster.)

But maybe that's a good thing. I don't need another distraction!

Questions )
crystalcazzie: (L&C Crazy Lex)
In the immortal words of Homer Simpson: WOOHOO! FOUR DAY WEEKEND!

And today being Thursday, that means Bones is on tonight! Yay! Of course there's also a new episode in America too and I'm going to have to be good and resist spoiling myself for it. This wasn't much of a problem before because I didn't have any other Bones fans on my flist, but that's changed now (yay!) and it's going to take more of an effort from me to avoid reading about it. Of course if I get really desperate I could always never even consider downloading the episode off the internet. Because that would be wrong.

Speaking of TV, I've also started re-watching Dark Angel on DVD. I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be as good as I remembered but it so is. Unfortunately season two sucked monkey balls so I probably won't be buying that. As I mentioned in my Ships of the Noughties list, Dark Angel was one of those shows where season one was absolutely amazing and almost turned me into a complete wreck over the summer waiting to see what happened, only for season two to be a bitter disappointment.

AND AND! While I was watching the pilot I caught a glimpse of a guy and went "Is that Gaeta?" and it was! He looked absolutely ridiculous!

On the ear-front, I still can't hear properly and it is still very annoying and sometimes awkward. But the antibiotic drops seem to be doing their thing for the infection and my ears are nowhere near as painful as they were before, which is a Very Good Thing. On Monday the nurse took a swab of one of the ears to send off to see what the problem is and if we'd have to change the treatment and she told me to call today for the results. So after a lot of anxiety about having to use the phone, I called up only to find the results aren't back yet. Great. So I'll have to call again some time next week.

But for now I am going to enjoy the fact that it is Thursday and I don't have to work tomorrow. Which, considering how busy it was today, pleases me greatly. =D

So, the current [livejournal.com profile] picspammy challenge is Fifty and as I'm a big shipper I thought doing 50 Shippy TV Moments would be a good idea. I've never actually posted to the community before so I'm a bit nervous about this though.

Anyway, here's the picspam. I hope you like it! And if you disagree with any of my choices or think I've left any obvious ones out please say so in the comments.

For my next list I came up with the idea of doing TV Presidents. I was going to do my top five TV Presidents but it turns out I could only come up with four. I toyed with the idea of including Kang from that Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode but I thought that would be a bit of a stretch.

You know this would have been a lot easier if I watched 24. That show seems to go through a ridiculous number of presidents.

Ok, so I'm really getting into this list thing, although I do wish I could think up a better name for them than 'lists'.

This time I have done a picspam celebrating my favourite redheaded ladies from television.

Fandom post ahead! I'm not sure if anyone on my friends list is actually going to be interested in this, but I've written it and I'm going to post it.


~*~ ~*~ ~*~

This list came about because I was watching a programme about the greatest TV shows of the decade. It was a terrible list that made no sense and made me quite angry so I decided to write my own. But instead of TV programmes I decided to do pairings that I’ve supported from the past ten years. They bring me squee and sadness in equal measure yet I still ship my little heart out.

The Rules: For a ship to be included it must have existed, at least in part, during the ten years spanning 2000 to 2009. So ships from programmes that started in the nineties and ran into the noughties are ok, but ships from programmes that finished before 2000 are not, even if I discovered/continued shipping them in the noughties. (Sorry Maddie/David.)

Because there was no way I was going to be able to put these in order of preference (I love them all!) I’ve listed them in chronological order instead:

You have to be with the person you love. )

We just played a game of Battlestar Galactica and for once I wasn't a cylon! Yay for me!

The humans still lost though. They always lose. We suck so much.
crystalcazzie: (Purple Flowers)
My old journal theme was depressing me. It wasn't bad or ugly, it just didn't fit with the sunshine and flowers of springtime that I've been seeing a lot of lately. So now I have a shiny new journal theme to look at and enjoy. And hopefully encourage me to post more because I am yet again neglecting this place. I'm a bad person.

Of course my other problem is that I have nothing to talk about. My life is very boring. And with Battlestar Galactica over I'm currently without an ongoing obsession to squee over/complain about. Of course Prison Break should be back soon, maybe I can get back into writing about that.

For now I will share my pain with you. And by that I mean my physical pain because I appear to have done something to my back to make it hate me. Ow. I assume I did something at work but it didn't actually start hurting until this morning, so I don't know.
crystalcazzie: (Default)
Yeah, so I fail at memeing. My happy thing for yesterday is the fact that work didn't completely suck.

My happy thing for today is that there's a new episode of Battlestar Galactica on tonight.

And, while I'm here, another meme yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] tyasante:

You Are An ISFJ
The Nurturer

You have a strong need to belong, and you very loyal.
A good listener, you excel at helping others in practical ways.
In your spare time, you enjoy engaging your senses through art, cooking, and music.
You find it easy to be devoted to one person... a partner who you do special things for.

In love, you express your emotions through actions.
Taking care of someone is how you love them. And you do it well!

At work, you do well in a structured environment. You complete tasks well and on time.
You would make a good interior designer, chef, or child psychologist.

How you see yourself: Competent, dependable, and detail oriented

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Boring, dominant, and stuck in a rut

I finally decided to see the doctor about my headaches but he's on holiday so I saw the nurse practitioner instead. She told me to take ibuprofen and come back if that doesn't work. So now I'm not sure what to do, cos the ibuprofen works but that doesn't really address why I'm getting the headaches in the first place. Do I just keep taking it? Maybe I can pretend it's vicodin and become a cool drug addict like House.

Also, the blood people don't want my headachy blood. This makes me sad.

I also went to the opticians in case my eyes were the problem. Apparently I am very slightly short-sighted. So I do now have a prescription for glasses but the optometrist recommended that I only fill it if no other cause can be found. And it's just for distance perception anyway, so it would really only be an issue if I drove.

Customers continue to be fucking stupid and demonstrate a complete inability to read or act like civilised human beings.

On the bright side, once I can get my dad off the TV I can watch the latest episode of Battlestar Galactica, which is my newest obsession. I came to this programme late and caught up on the whole series so far over the last month and a half, and now there are just three episodes left. This is a bit different to my usual obsessions spanning months and years and long, painful hiatuses where I'm driven crazy wondering what's going to happen.

And of course I have latched on to my beloved OTP and will be absolutely devastated if anything happens to either of them, which looks highly likely considering one of them is dying.

I really need to get some icons.
