Things that make me realise it's definitely autumn: The Halloween blog I follow on Tumblr has woken up and my dash is now full of pumpkins and falling leaves, Christmas stuff is slowly making its way into the stockroom at work, and I find myself constantly talking about new episodes of my favourite TV shows.

I've been back in the UK for a week now but I've been being my usual unsociable self and avoiding posting or commenting on LJ. So, how is everyone? Doing well I hope.

Las Vegas and San Francisco were excellent. Vegas was my favourite, I definitely want to go back there some time. I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I loved it. Especially the view of the Strip from the top of the Eiffel Tower at night.

While I was in America I did the whole collecting of state quarters thing. I ended up with 32 states and one territory. Not bad. I didn't get California though, which is annoying since I was there.

Since returning I've been watching a lot of CSI. It's fun to watch the establishing and background shots of Vegas and be able to say I've been to those places! It's also fun to see how old some of the shots are and how things have changed!

I'm not sure if I should admit that one thing I really liked to do while over there was think about TV shows! In Vegas I could imagine the kind of things Grissom and Sara might do together. In San Francisco I went to Chinatown and thought about the episode of Charmed with Piper and the ghost. And then in Alcatraz there was the episode with Phoebe and the ghost! Alcatraz also made me think a lot about Prison Break, for obvious reasons!

And now I'm back. And tired. And feeling kinda blah. It's London Pride today. I thought about going but didn't really feel up to it. Or anything really. Can I still blame jetlag for this? Or maybe the weather. Eh, I'll blame both.

There is a CSI: The Experience in Birmingham! Of course I would discover this less than a week before it ends meaning I have no time to go. Oh well, just more reason to get round to organising that trip to Las Vegas. I just hope I don't end up missing the one there too. (I'm still sad that Star Trek: The Experience has closed, that would have been cool.)

And just in case anyone was wondering, I'm not reading my Friends List at the moment cos I haven't seen the finale of Bones and I don't want to be spoiled for any of it. (I am aware that I really should get round to watching it soon cos the longer I wait the higher the chances are that I'll come across a spoiler somewhere accidentally. It's happened before that I've been spoiled for something while reading something else that had nothing to do with it. But if I wait one more day I can watch it properly on TV so I'm going to take my chances and just avoid most of the internet until then. I'll play LOTRO instead!)

Scene It!

Guess what guys! I now own the Star Trek Scene It? game! We must play this!

As an example of my awesome Star Trek knowledge I would like to share with you the events of about a week ago. When we were watching CSI and a woman was shown in profile and not very well lit and I went "Hey, it's Rosalind Chao!" That's right, I recognise recurring guest actors by the sides of their faces! I'm just that good.

It covers all five Star Trek series so hopefully there's something for everyone. =D

So, the current [ 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.

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. )

Oh, CSI. Why must you depress me so?

I have posted my entry to the [ profile] geekfiction Summer Reading Ficathon. And as usual I feel quite, quite sick. This is my first CSI fic and I really hope it's not rubbish.

It's here if anyone wants to read it and reassure me that it doesn't completely suck:
crystalcazzie: (Creepy Grissom)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Great. A few bits were jarring because they didn't match up with the ideas I had in my head from reading the story, but that's inevitable whenever films are made from books.

Happy Feet - Bizarre.

And that concludes our film reviews for the day.

Now I'm trying to work on my entry for the [ profile] geekfiction challenge and failing quite spectacularly. I just can't seem to make the story work and I'm running out of time here. It's really quite frustrating.

So, my weekend was excellent. Good food, good friends, good films. Baking was fun and it was great to see Emma again. It really had been far too long.

I also took the opportunity of going into Guildford to buy a copy of The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. I've been meaning to read it for some time and got the push I needed a couple of days ago when I signed up for the Geekfiction Summer Reading Ficathon.

I've seen ficathons before and haven't signed up because I was worried that my attempt would be rubbish, but this time I thought I should give it a try. Face your fears and all that. It'll probably still be rubbish but at least I'm going to have a go.

Hopefully I'll be hit by inspiration when I read the book.

I have just watched the latest episode of CSI and the CBS promo and I am now squeeing like a squeealicious squeeing thing filled with squee and squee more squee.

It's probably not very healthy that so much of my happiness is tied up in a fictional couple on a fictional TV show where anything could happen at the whims of the writers, but such is my life.

A quick note on some TV finales.

Prison Break: I have watched the season two finale and a recap is coming. Honestly. It's just taking a really long time. Sorry about that.

Life on Mars: Excellent. There were a few moments where I was worried about where it was going, but ultimately I felt it had the perfect ending. Now I want to buy the DVDs to see all the episodes I missed but I really shouldn't spend any more money.

CSI: Won't be shown until mid-May but I've been reading spoilers for it and they leave my stomach in knots. On one hand it's one of my favourite story ideas and if it goes how I hope it will I feel it could possibly be my favourite episode ever. On the other hand if it doesn't go how I hope I'll probably hate it for the lost opportunity. And it has potential to be devastating, which I really hope doesn't happen.

Baking was good. Icing was pretty heavy on the alcohol, but that's what you get when I'm the one who controls how much rum goes in. My family seemed to like the biscuits I brought back too.

The rest of the day was a lot of fun as well, especially tipsy internetting. Which brings me to my next point, William Petersen wants you to stop being bad. Seriously. Watch the video. And I defy you not to react at the end:

Clicky here. He's the third video.

Goes well with my new icon, doesn't it?

Yesterday I watched the latest episode of CSI. I can recap it for you in about thirty seconds:

Fallen Idols )

I also watched the latest episode of Prison Break which, in keeping with the recent high standards, was SO GOOD! It had me shouting at my computer and again with the incoherent sounds. I shall hopefully have a proper recap up shortly.

In real life library news, I have sent off more letters, applied to Surrey and received a rejection from Reading. I'm also thinking I should assume rejection from Aberystwyth since their deadline was long ago and they specifically say if you're not picked they won't bother telling you.

I have just seen pictures from the latest episode of CSI.

Grissom = Santa Claus.

I managed to fall over twice today. Truly I am the epitome of grace.

The first time I was holding one of my CSI DVDs, and that may well be the reason why it now has a huge crack in it. So I was wondering if any of my lovely friends had CSI season 2 and could make me a copy of disc 1. My original disc was region 1 but it doesn't really matter because from what I can tell region 2 is the same.

I will of course pay for any postage and cost of blank DVD.

Other than that, how is everyone? Anybody want to meet up and do something? Anything? I'm going stir crazy here...

The last few days have led me to one conclusion - I live in a Tardis.

We're getting new upstairs windows, so this means I have to clear my room so that they can be put in. I have been working on this for a few days now and there's still a long way to go. It seems that no matter how much stuff I throw away or put in bags for the charity shop there's still a load just lying there, mocking me as I try in vain to clear it all.

Anyone who knows me in person knows that I am not a tidy person and so this was never going to be an easy task, but even I am amazed by just how much rubbish I managed to fit down the side of my bed.

The upside is that I watch my CSI DVDs as I do this and so am getting through quite a lot of season one. Also, I found a £20 note earlier. Woo hoo!

In Canada, Paul and I designated CSI:NY as CSI: Mediocre. Although now watching tonight's episode I may have to downgrade it to CSI: Horrible. It does have one redeeming feature however, in the form of the lovely Anna Belknap. She's so pretty. Maybe it should just be a whole programme following her around...

On another note, my driving instructor said something unbelievably stupid during my lesson earlier. He said "don't panic, it's not helpful. I know it feels good but it doesn't help." Clearly the words of someone who has never had a panic attack and felt like they were going to die.

But on the bright side, there's an episode of CSI:Excellent on next. Hopefully it's a good one.
