The Parkington Sisters are so obscure they don't even have a Wikipedia page (!). This video is amazing on about a hundred levels. One of which is that Lydia Parkington (I think that's Lydia) is so gorgeous she can't possibly be real.



They're playing in Orleans in August. I may just have to go see them.

Tonight's dinner: Salad with mixed spring greens, strawberries, onions, lowfat feta and lowfat champagne-pear vinaigrette dressing. It's basically a modified version of the salad I pay eleven bucks for at Pizza Rustica. Om nom nom.

Although, really, if I could actually BE at Pizza Rustica I'd cough up the dough. Because it's about the ambiance as much as the food, and looking out on Blue Jays Way is way cooler than staring at my unpainted walls and unmade bed. In other words? Toronto, I'm over being mad at you. Can I come back now?

Павел Андреевич Чехов, naturally.

And not just because I had a mad crush on him when I was sixteen.

Also? I need a Star Trek icon.

More character meme answer. This time, from [livejournal.com profile] andeincascade (HI ANDE, I MISS YOUUUU!): Benton Fraser!

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

Fraser has a very special place in my fannish heart. If he isn't my favourite character ever, he's right up there in a dead heat with them that are.I would love to have him for a friend, and if he were my enemy I'd run off and hide on another PLANET, because he'd find me no matter where I ran on Earth, and being on the receiving end of a pissed-off Benton Fraser would be all kinds of scary. I love his sense of right and wrong, and his fierce, unwavering loyalty. I love his idealism and his passion. I love how when he talks you can actually hear the parentheses and semicolons. I especially love that he isn't perfect, even though he wants desperately to be. He has a dry wit and a stealth sense of humour that I only dream of coming close to having.

Fraser is probably the character who is most like me in any of my fandoms (although he is a much better person and much, much prettier *g*). I want to be Benton Fraser when I grow up, only without the baggage. I don't know whether I want to shtup him or talk to him for hours, or both. Probably both.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

Ray Kowalski--it's canon, dude. They literally ride off into the sunrise together. Ray Vecchio, too, yes--I've actually written F/V a couple of times-- but it's usually as part of an OT3, and only in fanon. I tend to look at Vecchio in canon as Fraser's soul-brother. They're so much more than just friends, but their love bends toward philos rather than eros. Which doesn't diminish it from his love for Kowalski--Fraser would die in a heartbeat for both of his Rays.

Also, and definitel not least--Meg Thatcher. I ship Fraser/Thatcher hard, and I'm not ashamed to say it. I love, love Thatcher. I wish there was more good Fraser/Thatcher fic out there (it does exist, though--[livejournal.com profile] icepixie and [livejournal.com profile] tanyareed have both written excellent Fraser/Thatcher fics (some of which are up at [livejournal.com profile] fraser_thatcher * My non-romantic OTP for this character.

Fraser and Ray Vecchio. See above. (and I do write, and read, F/V and F/K/V. But gah, platonic!F/V is so lovely. I don't understand why platonic is almost universally considered Less Than, when it's equally as awesome, dammit!). I also have to put a plug in for Fraser's entirely wonderful relationship with Diefenbaker. I'm all about platonic!F/V/D. :D


* My unpopular opinion about this character.

Fraser is not shy with women in whom he's interested. I mean, um. Victoria, anyone? Sure, he's uncomfortable with unwanted attention from women who look at him as a sex object. But when he's interested, OMG, he's interested. Guh.

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

Wow, hmm, I dunno. I definitely wish he'd have not worn the red serge so much in seasons 3 and 4. I also wish there would have been more of him working with both Rays.

A while back I wrote an entire post for [livejournal.com profile] ds_workshop called Fraser being Fraser, in which I say a bunch more about Fraser. I also wrote a GIANT personal backstory for him. If you read both of those (and I'd love it if you did!), you'll pretty much get my feelings about who Fraser is and why I love him so. very. much.

In conclusion, Benton Fraser, RCMP.

I'm actually starting to answer my character meme comments without letting months go by, go me!

First one, from [livejournal.com profile] lucifuge_5 (HI, LUCE, HOWTHEHECKAREYOU?): Geoffrey Tennant!

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

I love him, which is obvious. I love his talent, his eccentricity, his devotion to Ellen and to his art, his dry wit, his intellect, his hair, his clothes, that little-boy-lost look he has. Oh, and he is so, so pretty and doesn't even know it.

I'm with Leonard Cohen: I know that he's half-crazy, but that's why I want to be there. Did I mention I love him? I do, so very much.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

Ellen, period. Sure, there's obvious unrequited Geoffrey/Oliver, but it's one-sided on Oliver's part, so it doesn't count for the question.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character.

Geoffrey/Anna is my platonic OTP for the whole show. They are so very good for each other in a BFF way. And in an AU where Ellen doesn't exist and never has, I would ship them romantically.

* My unpopular opinion about this character.

I think he's straight. As in not gay, not bi. That being said, I still like the idea that he and Darren had a thing back when they were in university. ;)

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.

SEASON FOUR, DAMMIT. I would have loved to see him and Ellen trying to run Theatre Sans Argent together.

LJ flist-cut is done. I'll probably be doing more a little later, when I see how this one goes. I've whetted it down to less than 200, which is a lot better than it was. I still have some people on who have not posted in literally years, but I don't have the heart to delist them, mostly because I knew them in RL or had a close online relationship at one point ([profile] lady_morsmordre, if you're out there, I'm especially talking about you).

Again, if anyone wants me to add you back, post here and I will. My next thing is a drastic cut of comms, which, while not as heart-wrenching as the flist cut, still will be difficult. I've already done a few, but I need to do more. The glut of comms I have is worse than the unwieldy size of my flist.

Again, I am not cutting on DW.


Ahem. Now for more fun stuff. Here, have some Bob Marley cuteness:

Meme gacked from [livejournal.com profile] moony:

Leave the name of a character/person from a fandom you know I'm in, and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character.

* All the people I ship romantically with this character.

* My non-romantic OTP for this character.

* My unpopular opinion about this character.

* One thing I wish would happen/had happened with this character in canon.


Pleeeeeze do this meme. I need to feel like I'm part of fandom again. :D

I've been out of the loop big time fandomwise recently, partly for RL intrusion, but also because my LJ has become too huge and ungainly to process in any kind of efficient manner (and I'm not Ms. Efficient on a good day). What I need to do is to cull my flist hugely, so in the next few days I'll be doing that. What I'm going to try to do is unfriend users who I have little in common with anymore, or who haven't posted in a while.

I don't know exactly when I'll be doing this, but it'll likely be sometime this week. Unfriending you does not mean I don't like you or want to hear from you, it's just that my flist has gotten so very big I'm afraid to look at it anymore, so I don't read posts or make comments or even talk to anyone. Shaving my list will put me back in control, hopefully.

I'll also be unsubbing from comms I never read or that are repetitive. I will be making an announcement post after I've finished doing all this stuff. Because people on LJ change their screennames like I change my underwear, I may end up unfriending people who have been on for ages, but who have changed their usernames so I don't recognize them. If I unfriend you and you would like to be added back, please let me know in comments there, and I will add you back.

I really hate doing this, but if I don't I feel like I'll never read LJ again and I love my LJ (and my DW, which I double-post at, although I'm not doing any cutting at DW).

Curling. And Nibbles. And why is "sport" in quotes?

I just found a Darth Maul/Alex Krycek fic. I cannot tell you how funny I think that is. Also scary.

I'll give y'all the link if you really, really want it, but I don't think any of you do. I don't even want it. And no, I didn't read it. I can't bring myself to read it.

Scrapple (don't knock it 'til you've tried it), Brussels sprouts, and my mom's famous mashed potatoes.



In other news, I now have GIMP and want to learn how to make icons with it.

Stupid, stupid question. Because who knows what I (or anyone else, for that matter) would do if this happened to me. I'd probably wake him/her and everyone else who is asleep up anyway, with all my screaming and panicking.

  • Fic summary: "A black Cadillac, sex, stolen money, and Alex Krycek. Does Scully need anything else?" My answer: Well, if she does I'd be glad to take her place.
  • I finished my paper. I'm actually pretty shocked I finished this early.
  • I've figured out how to send fic to my Kindle. This can never be good.
  • I'm not taking a holiday this summer. I was okay with it at first, but now I'm kind of depressed about it. I might, might, mind you, go here in October as consolation. Because I need to go to Cape Breton again. I really do. And what better time or reason than Celtic Colours?
  • I want some new icons but I don't have photoshop anymore. Alas.
  • I wish I could blow off school and just be fannish. Work is okay, because I need to get paid, but school is boring and all about a pipe dream and I'd rather be doing something for [personal profile] ds_snippets, dammit.
  • Speaking of fannish, I've probably missed a bazillion of posts, so I haven't read or commented on new fic.I will try to reconnect better in the future. See above about school.
  • I want to win powerball so I can buy a whole new wardrobe, starting with lots of stuff from here. Like maybe this And/or this and this. At the moment I have fuck all in the clothing department. And also in the money department.

    In conclusion, Delenn.

WTF, Livejournal?

Anyone know if there's a reason LJ is almost always down these days? Not cool, LJ, not cool.

ETA: Apparently LJ has been suckerpunched by Russian political activists (thanks to [personal profile] omens for the link). Totally not LJ's fault.
