FMM Update

I'm doing pretty well with my bracket on FMM at the moment. And I really like the symmetry of my predictions. I have exactly three right characters and one wrong character in each section, which makes me happy. (Four right in each would have been better, of course, but that was never going to happen!)

I'm sad that Michonne is currently losing though. I can only assume that people have not been watching The Walking Dead and therefore do not realise how awesome she is.

So, I was talking with people at work about my week off and I mentioned going to London and having five cocktails on Saturday. One of my colleagues looked at me, shocked, and went "Caroline! I thought you didn't drink!" Just goes to show how people you work with can have no idea who you really are!

Also, it is March and that means Fandom March Madness time. I have fallen out of love with it in recent years, when it moved away from being a fun, snarky place and became just a mean and nasty place, but I'm willing to give it another go. Mainly so I can profess my love for Camille Bordey in the nominations round. (I know Death in Paradise has no chance of getting in, so I've got to make the most of it while I can!)

I'm trying to fill out my bracket for FMM and it's SO HARD. I don't watch half the shows so I have no idea who a lot of these people are and I'm trying to judge their popularity from the preliminary votes. And with the shows I do watch I'm torn between going for who I want to win and who I think will win. I mean I want Miranda to take it all but I know that's not likely.

Of course it's also highly unlikely that I have a shot in hell of actually winning the office pool anyway, so maybe I should just go for who I want. Take the risk. Ride the eagle. I don't even know what that means. VOTE MIRANDA!

I have returned from the 11th Hour convention! And yes, I had a brilliant time. That's not to say there wasn't some serious anxiety, but I got through it and the good parts of the weekend definitely outweighed the bad.

Here, have some ramblings about my time there:

So the new Doctor Who companion was announced today. I also had today off work. I could pretend that I'm such an obsessive Whovian that I took the day off specifically because of this, but actually I'm just using up my last few remaining holiday days and booked this time off before we knew when the announcement was going to be. Still, it all worked out pretty well cos it meant I had the day to flail and panic and react and try to get my feelings under control.

I did write up an initial response and posted it on Tumblr earlier, so I think I'll just copy and paste it here. It's my thoughts about the announcement of the new companion and also about a tweet by the Doctor Who account regarding something Moffat said about the method of Amy and Rory's departure. So, you know, spoilers.

HEY GUYS, IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, ROUND ONE HAS STARTED OVER AT [livejournal.com profile] f_march_madness! YOUR FAVOURITE CHARACTERS NEED YOUR HELP!


IF YOU DON'T WATCH THE SHOWS, THEN MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS NEED YOUR HELP!





ALSO SAMANTHA CARTER AND CHLOE SULLIVAN. THEY HAVE NO CHANCE AGAINST SCULLY AND OLIVIA, BUT THEY'RE STILL AWESOME AND DESERVE SOME LOVE.

AND I THINK I CAN OFFICIALLY SAY THAT I'M NOT GOING TO WIN THE OFFICE POOL! I SERIOUSLY OVERESTIMATED THE LEVEL OF KONO SUPPORT. WHILE I'M HAPPY THAT BRENNAN IS WINNING HER POLL SO THOROUGHLY, IT DOES COMPLETELY SCREW UP MY BRACKET!

It's MARCH!

Today I commented on two LJ posts and responded to one email. It's bad that this is a huge accomplishment for me, isn't it? I think I'm getting worse.

But enough of that because OMG guess what just got posted?

The 2011 Fandom March Madness Schedule! That's what!

I can almost hear my flist dividing itself into "I know! I've got my campaign materials all ready and waiting!" and "What on earth are you talking about you complete weirdo?" Anyone in the second camp who likes TV, I highly recommend you join in. It's a lot of fun!

And can I just say I'm very much looking forward to campaigning with and/or against people I made friends with last year? It's going to be awesome!

Hey, everyone! Time for my New Year's memes. My answers this year are more upbeat than I can ever remember them being previously, which has to be a good thing!

Meme Two: The Sentences )

I have now seen the last episode of Gilmore Girls!

This feels oddly significant to me. Back during Fandom March Madness there was a lot of campaigning for Lorelai Gilmore. I had no idea who she was, but she sounded pretty awesome so I decided to watch her show. E4 were very helpful and showed all seven seasons back to back with an episode every weekday.

And now, eight months after I decided to watch it, I have finished it.

Bring on next March!

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.

HELLO FRIENDSLIST!

YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED THAT I AM CAPSLOCKING AGAIN. YES, THIS IS ANOTHER MARCH MADNESS POST.

DR SHELDON COOPER IS FACING OFF AGAINST DR TEMPERANCE BRENNAN. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE THEN GO VOTE FOR BRENNAN AND ALL WILL BE WELL. IF YOU DO KNOW WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE THEN VOTE FOR BRENNAN ANYWAY BECAUSE YOU KNOW HOW AWESOME SHE IS.

GO! VOTE!

PROOF OF AWESOMENESS:

THAT IS BRENNAN. SITTING ACROSS FROM STEPHEN FRY. STEPHEN. FRY.

YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE.

OFFICE POOL

crystalcazzie: (Roslin Airlock Time)
THE FANDOM MARCH MADNESS PRELIMINARIES ARE OVER AND THE OFFICE POOL IS OPEN! THIS IS WHERE WE NEED TO PREDICT WHO WE THINK WILL WIN EACH ROUND AND TAKE THE CHAMPIONSHIP!

OMG THIS IS HARD! I KNOW I'M SUPPOSED TO BE PUTTING DOWN WHO I THINK WILL WIN BUT I DON'T THINK I CAN BRING MYSELF TO PREDICT AGAINST MY FAVOURITES. I'M GOING TO HAVE TO PREDICT OPTIMISTICALLY AND HOPE FOR THE BEST.

IT WASN'T A PROBLEM FOR THE FIRST TWO SECTIONS BUT THEN I GOT TO THE SCI-FI BRACKET AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! I WANT SAM CARTER TO BEAT DEAN SO MUCH BUT I DOUBT SHE WILL. AND HAVING AERYN SUN AGAINST DONNA NOBLE HURTS MY SOUL BECAUSE I LOVE AERYN BUT EVERYONE WAS RALLYING AROUND DONNA IN THE PRELIMINARIES AND SHE HAS A LOT OF SUPPORT.

I'M NOT GOING TO PREDICT RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO TAKE THE SHEET OF PAPER WITH ME AND THINK ABOUT IT SERIOUSLY THEN FILL IT IN TOMORROW. I'M BEING THAT SERIOUS ABOUT IT!
crystalcazzie: (L&C Crazy Lex)
RPATZZ WAS ON JON STEWART! OMG IT WAS AMAZING! MY PARENTS WERE WATCHING IT WITH ME AND WERE ALL "WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIS HAIR?" AND I HAD TO TRY AND EXPLAIN WHY I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE HIM!

IF YOU'RE WONDERING WHY I'M CAPSLOCKING, WELL IT'S THANKS TO FANDOM MARCH MADNESS. WORK MIGHT BE MAKING ME MISERABLE AT THE MOMENT BUT IT'S OK BECAUSE I'M HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME OVER THERE VOTING AND CAMPAIGNING FOR MY FAVOURITE CHARACTERS!



SO YEAH, COME AND JOIN IN! IT'S SO MUCH FUN! (UNLESS YOU'RE PLANNING TO VOTE FOR DEAN WINCHESTER, IN WHICH CASE THERE'S NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG.)

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. )
