So many prompts. All the feels.

*edited entry*

So in looking back this entry had no cut text other than what was below. I tried to edit it and got junk for text. So I had written a summary of all the feelings I had during the last episode, but I don't feel the same way now so it'd be hard to go back and write. Sorry for the confusion.

I got my season two DVDs the other day. I'm going to take refuge in them...or Buffy.

In addition to season two of TVD I'm taking delight in season one of The West Wing. Which is interesting. And re-watching season three of Supernatural.

Spoilers underneath the cut for my predicted end to this season of TVD so for everything through 3.21. Warning this was made a mere few minutes after 3.21 and it may not be coherent? Some review of this current episode, but mostly just my prediction for the end.

Memories are..... )

In other exciting news-Best Buy is having sale on all CW shows and related spin offs (SPN anime) where everything was 19.99. Including Blue Ray DVD's. I now have the last season of Supernatural and Season Two of TVD.

Both shows were picked up for another season! So many good things.

In less happy personal news-Chris got called into work last night meaning he's working 60 straight hours. Sleeping alone for three nights is no fun. I only got married to have a warm person sized pillow, and I object to its frequent absence.

Soooo....I wrote fanfic. I just can't. I totally blame other people in TVD fandom who make awesome comment fic posts. Anyway, I wrote one, and haven't heard anything. It's not that good, I know it's not, but that's ok. It was totally fun to write. I haven't written in ages. I picked two of the comment prompts to try and write, and the first one totally wrote itself.

The second one...it is trying to develop a plot. It is trying to be the rest of the season of said show. It is also definitely not trying to fill the prompt. I may have to give up on the prompt and just write the end of the season as an AU. I'm halfway in cahoots with the writers in terms of plot anyway, I just happen to think there's less character assassination in mine. It will not end well for my ship. I don't think I can write my ship and that's a bad sign.

Spoilers for show under cut

It was sad )

An Elena Gilbert comment!ficathon
(click on the picture)
So I'm an awful fandom participant. Last night I had this big 'relationships in shows' rant typed up with some observations about what I see people criticizing about fictional relationships and how unhealthy they are. Which got me to thinking about real relationships how none of them are healthy or are very problematic in the same ways. It was all very clear in my head last night, but then the partner in my relationship demanded I put the computer down and do his laundry/pay attention to him :/. So it will be happening someday.

Main though however, is that characters with flaws are a good thing. Repeat after me: GOOD THING. No character is perfect, and if they are there are major problems tbh. I would not want to watch a show with perfect characters.

So before I launch on my big long thought out meta rant at an unknown future date, I'll end with my own mini rant which is Vampire Diaries related and under the cut. There are SPOILERS for the episode from 4/19/12 which is either 3x19 or 3x20.

If you were a boy we'd be cheering for you )

As an update on the River situation: she's staying for now. My husband, who does not even like this dog, refuses to get rid of her. Because she is deathly afraid of thunderstorms and tore up the second bedroom for the dogs he bought an outdoor dog pen, and now wants to keep her outside during the storms. I am skeptical. I am deeply, deeply skeptical that this will work and not end in blood/tears. That's the way things are for now.

So, I went and took myself to see Cabin in the Woods today because we all know that I follow Joss Whedon everywhere, even places I shouldn't *Dollhouse*. Anyway, it was AMAZING. I have all the feelings about this movie. I am planning to go again with my mother.

I won't spoil it but I will say this-scary no. Bloody-yes. So take from that what you will and then get thyself to a movie theater and enjoy the hell out of it.

Being unemployed is a drag. I mean what are you supposed to do with your day? It's really bad. I want a job. But I did what no one should do-I got used to certain income level. I'm earning unemployment for the next few months and lets just say taking a job that pays less than $12 an hour would not be worth it. Which in Texas is most entry level jobs.

As it turns out an MBA doesn't do you much good finding a job. For two main reasons.

1. No concentration. I didn't get an MBA with an HR emphasis for example. I just got a general MBA. So as a result I don't know very specific HR laws. I took an HR class and it was very general. So this puts me out of the running for all the HR jobs, accounting jobs etc.

2. No experience. I can't go into a Housing Authority here. I applied for one, and got rejected for a position higher than the one I had held in Fresno. I applied for entry level, but I haven't heard on those jobs. I want to go into the oil and gas industry-but they require experience, in that specific industry.

Now many of you may be reeling in shock after reading that last sentence. The oil and gas industry you say? It's nothing like the media portrays it. Nothing. And I have talked to people who work in the industry, and I have researched companies and I am ashamed of myself. Because I took what the media has always said and didn't consider the bias. When the Deepwater Horizon blew up I didn't research offshore drilling. I have now. It's not a perfect industry (no industry is) and clearly we (as a nation) have an oil dependency problem, but that doesn't make the industry itself a bad industry or the people who work it bad people. I hope I can find a job there.

They make a lot of money, but they always give a lot back to their employees. And the big company around here gives a lot back to the community too. I realize that people who work in the industry have their own bias and of course they like it when it's paying their bills, however, I think the important thing I learned is always, always to do my own research.

My dogs are getting spoiled with me being home all day all the time. I don't know what River is going to do when I go back to work. She freaks out if she's alone in the house. Since we're living with my parents someone is almost always home one way or the other. She tore up one foot on New Year's Eve with the fireworks and it's just starting to heal. She almost did more damage Sunday when I took my Mom to the airport and no one was home for about an hour and half. We have bought her Benadryl for the storms. She gets a full adult dose to keep her from loosing her mind during the thunder.

Haley is hanging in their despite the vets estimation just after Thanksgiving that she had one month to live. She coughs a lot and it's pretty clear that her heartbeat is not right, but she eats a lot and seems happy so I don't feel like we're hurting her by letting her live.

Since I live in Texas now where it is legal to say this-I have two ferrets and two dogs. If I every talk about my pack of animals that's what I mean. The ferrets are illegal in the state of CA which is why they may have been mentioned in less than detail.

Rachel Alexandra dropped her Curlin foal on Sunday. She had a cute colt that was 125 pounds. Mom and the colt are doing well. Zenyatta is due to foal in early March. Rachel Alexandra is scheduled to be bred to Bernardini this year which is the sire of the foal Zenyatta is carrying currently. Bernadini is also the sire of Zenyatta's half sister Eblouissante who starts her racing career this year.

A Girl You Should Date

Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Find a girl who reads. You’ll know that she does because she will always have an unread book in her bag. She’s the one lovingly looking over the shelves in the bookstore, the one who quietly cries out when she finds the book she wants. You see the weird chick sniffing the pages of an old book in a second hand book shop? That’s the reader. They can never resist smelling the pages, especially when they are yellow.

She’s the girl reading while waiting in that coffee shop down the street. If you take a peek at her mug, the non-dairy creamer is floating on top because she’s kind of engrossed already. Lost in a world of the author’s making. Sit down. She might give you a glare, as most girls who read do not like to be interrupted. Ask her if she likes the book.

Buy her another cup of coffee.
Let her know what you really think of Murakami. See if she got through the first chapter of Fellowship. Understand that if she says she understood James Joyce’s Ulysses she’s just saying that to sound intelligent. Ask her if she loves Alice or she would like to be Alice.

It’s easy to date a girl who reads. Give her books for her birthday, for Christmas and for anniversaries. Give her the gift of words, in poetry, in song. Give her Neruda, Pound, Sexton, Cummings. Let her know that you understand that words are love. Understand that she knows the difference between books and reality but by god, she’s going to try to make her life a little like her favorite book. It will never be your fault if she does.

She has to give it a shot somehow.
Lie to her. If she understands syntax, she will understand your need to lie. Behind words are other things: motivation, value, nuance, dialogue. It will not be the end of the world.

Fail her. Because a girl who reads knows that failure always leads up to the climax. Because girls who read understand that all things will come to end. That you can always write a sequel. That you can begin again and again and still be the hero. That life is meant to have a villain or two.

Why be frightened of everything that you are not? Girls who read understand that people, like characters, develop. Except in the Twilight series.

If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2 AM clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are.

You will propose on a hot air balloon. Or during a rock concert. Or very casually next time she’s sick. Over Skype.

You will smile so hard you will wonder why your heart hasn’t burst and bled out all over your chest yet. You will write the story of your lives, have kids with strange names and even stranger tastes. She will introduce your children to the Cat in the Hat and Aslan, maybe in the same day. You will walk the winters of your old age together and she will recite Keats under her breath while you shake the snow off your boots.

Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours and half-baked proposals, then you’re better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.

Or better yet, date a girl who writes.

– Rosemarie Urquico –
So I have never been saving my links. And now as I reflect back on the end of certain stories, this is bad. I can't find things. It's distressing. I don't live the new ToS for Delicious and I want to know where everyone went. I heard about Pinboard, but I'm not crazy about paying $10 for a website. I may because I'm sick of forgetting where I read things and it might make me post more.

So if anyone remembers where all the fans fled to that'd be great.
