It's so nice outside today. It's warm, but not humid, with a nice breeze and I just love this sort of weather. I hate humidity. It is the devil.

**

I managed to finally see this past week's Entourage premiere.

Spoilers for the episode... )

I still have to watch 4400, last week's Starter Wife, and that new HBO comedy that was on after Entourage. Sometimes I think I should give up my ABC soaps, but I just can't. Well, I'm down to two as All My Children lost me awhile ago, and if they recast Brenda, I might stop watching that (okay, not completely as I love Patrick and Robin).

**

Based on Lj's post on guidelines & goals, I'm definitely not getting a permanent account during the sale. I'm not at the point where I'm giving up livejournal, but at the same time, I don't quite trust them or completely understand how they are deciphering what is harmful content.

And while I have no problem with them stating, not on our servers, sorry, I do have a problem with not stating what is up and leaving customers unsure of how to proceed. Why would I buy something that isn't a right fit for me?
tommygirl: (prison break - brothers)
I'm still trying to figure out exactly what I'm going to do with this journal. I was out of commission last week due to illness and today has been crazy as I try to get my head back into work/life.

It's hot as hell and I'm tired and I didn't get to see the premiere of 4400 or Entourage last night. This makes me sad. But hopefully tonight, I'll have some time for viewing.

**

If you want a drabble, it's not too late to make a request. due to illness last week, I didn't get to them, so I'll be working on them tomorrow.

Supernatural Sam/Dean Fanfic Readers: The Angst Vs. Schmoop Olympics have begun over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_heraea. So go read and rate the stories. I'm reading, but as someone on one of the teams, I can't vote. So check it out. Angst AND schmoop! Dean/Sam! Does it get better than that?

**

I watched the finale of Entourage. I love Walsh, but not as much as I love my boys. And it's giving me even more ideas for Girl!Eric/Vince story. So [livejournal.com profile] iamtheenemy, I must ask, when they first met, did Walsh hit on girl!Eric? Hee.

And this is probably the best finale for the show because in two weeks the next season begins and *that* makes me so happy. I love those boys and this finale was laugh-out-loud funny at parts.

I also dvr'd Adrian Grenier's documentary on locating his father, but fifteen minutes into it, I'm not sure if it's my cup of tea. And my god, he looks so young! It's all Drive Me Crazy and Adventures of Sebastian Cole Adrian. YUM.
tommygirl: (supernatural - my boys)
Happy Supernatural day, everyone! Tonight's episode, based on what I saw in just the preview, looks to be awesome. I cannot wait. And oh Dean, I love you so much. I love Sammy too, but Dean just owns my soul.

**

I finally saw Entourage from Sunday night...

A little talk about the episode... )

**

Due to the fact that I was busy at work and a huge lame-o when I got home (I went to bed at 8pm, my friends), I didn't get to check out the extravaganza for Sammy's birthday yesterday. Hopefully I'll have some time tonight before Ugly Betty and Supernatural!
tommygirl: (joa - quotes)
My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the terrible tragedy at Virginia Tech. I know from experience after 9/11 that nothing anyone says will make it better and it doesn't bring the person you loved back, and sometimes the cliches get annoying, so I'll spare you all that. Just know that I'm thinking of all of you.

**

Due to work projects and then medical stuff today, I haven't had the opportunity to squee about how awesome Entourage was on Sunday night.

Spoilers for the episode... )

Tuesday Ten! And I'm doing it on Tuesday!

1. Regular doctor checkups or sporadic visits? Dude, I seem to live at my doctor between my sinuses, my constant falling and spraining things, and random bouts of sickness, I'm there a whole lot.

2. What’s getting the most airplay on your ipod/stereo/’puter at the moment? Robin Thicke's album. I'm madly in love, people. And it seems so wrong to love Mr. Seaver's real life son so much.

3. Fave typeface? Arial

4. Fave reality tv show? American Idol and Last Comic Standing are the only ones I watch.

5. What’s your LJ screen name all about? I decided to have a fannish journal separate from my personal when I started getting more and more involved in many fandoms...and I write stories, I'm a diva, and a girl. I'm also incredibly lame and unoriginal.

6. Funniest word you heard/used/read today? Spooged. And I used it.

7. Fave part of your job? (school if that’s where you are) I write an advice column on alternate modes of transportation.

8. Least fave part of your job? (school if that’s where you are) All the medicaid stuff, especially since all the new rules, just makes my job SO much harder with all the reading and trying to comprehending of these things so when employees ask, I can explain.

9. Do you like horror movies? I love horror movies. I especially love cheesy horror movies of the eighties. They are my favorite!

10. How hot IS Balthazar Getty? So hot! I loved him when I was fifteen and he was in Young Guns 2, and then he went through an unfortunate phase and got puffy, but when he was on Alias, he got hot again. Like so hot. And he's still hot on Brothers and Sisters. In fact, Tommy Walker and Dean Winchester should have a conversation about being ridiculously goodlooking older brothers.

**

Now I shall try to catch up on over two days of friends list. This may not happen, especially since I will have to stop for American Idol...even if I am scared of country night and what the contestants might do.
tommygirl: (friday night lights - coach and matt)
Leave a comment and I'll give you a letter; then you have to list 10 things you like starting with that letter. Post them in your journal and give out new letters to your commenters in turn. NO TAGBACKS ALLOWED, unless a commenter specifically requests to be given a letter!

I was given the letter "M"

- Michael Scofield of Prison Break
- Matchbox Twenty

- Michael Chabon's books
- Melinda Doolittle on American Idol
- My friends
- MacManus Brothers (Boondock Saints)
- Music
- milkshakes

[livejournal.com profile] dorkdance is hosting a Seasonal Friending Meme over at her journal. It's multifandom, so if you're looking for new friends, stop by.

I have finally begun working on my remix story, having chosen a story after going back and forth on a few different ones. I share a lot of fandoms with my recipient so it was really hard for me to narrow it down. But I've discovered a new author for future reference...and it's part of why I love the Remix challenge. I'm usually assigned to someone that I've never read before. I also managed to do a few hundred more words on the next installment of Winchester Meets Halliwell. This is a longer one than any of the previous as I had this damn idea based off [livejournal.com profile] jellicle's prompt back in the day to have Victor from Charmed interact with Sam of Supernatural.

**

Alas and woe, I did not get to see Grindhouse today and it looks like I have to wait until next weekend. My sister woke up violently ill this morning and she would kick my ass if I went without her. Plus, this way the boy can come down and go with us next weekend. Of course, this is the second time we had to reschedule, so I'm beginning to wonder if I'm doomed.

We did watch Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and From Dusk 'Til Dawn. I forgot how much I really enjoyed From Dusk 'Til Dawn and not just because of my obsession with George Clooney...it's just a fun movie. I forget that sometimes, whereas I never forget how much I love PF or RD. Oh Quentin, you are so violent and over-the-top. I love it.

**

Entourage is a little over an hour away. I'm waiting for the west coast showing on HBO though so that I don't have to miss Brothers and Sisters. I mean, if I had to choose between them, it would be Entourage, but thankfully, I live in a world where such evil choices are not required of me and I can enjoy *all* the cute boys I want.
tommygirl: (firefly - simon (no words))
It's a Saturday night, my life is boring due to health issues, and the boy just left to spend Easter with his parents. Good times. At least tomorrow I get to go see Grindhouse. I can't wait to see this movie. I've been counting down the days and it's finally here. Good times to be had. Of course, my coworkers all looked at me like I was nuts that I was excited about this movie. It's like they don't know me at all. Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez really have fun with directing and that makes for more enjoyable movies. And I love both of their stuff like whoa for the most part (not a fan of Sin City or Jackie Brown). I wonder if I should pull out my dvds of their movies and do a little prep marathon tonight.

No, I should write. You'd think I'd use my boredom from being sick/stuck in bed/unable to do anything to get some of my many projects done, but I just have no energy and am feeling slightly apathetic.

**

I ended up picking up Entourage season three, part 1 at Target today. I went into the devil store for body wash and walked out with the dvds. I was trying to be good and wait a bit, but really, I am human and Vincent Chase is hot.

Tomorrow night new episodes! Tomorrow is looking to be a really good day! First I get to see Grindhouse and then Entourage premieres with new episodes. And then I have off on Monday! Woo-hoo!

I'm interested to see how things proceed with Ari after the finale of part one of the season. And just to have them back. I can watch those episodes over and over and over and never tire of it.

And did anyone else see the boys on ellen yesterday? They were only on briefly and not a whole lot was revealed, but it was still so cute.

**

Alrighty, I'm going to grab some dinner and then I'm going to write. I will not pull out my Tarantino & Rodriguez movies. I will not overdose on Entourage. I'm going to write. Even if it's just those 200 words I need to get done.

Ciao darlings!
tommygirl: (entourage - the boys)
Work is insanely busy. I had to leave early to go to the dentist which is always fun and now I just want to collapse and die. But no, I must stay up and watch American Idol and vote for pretty much everyone except Sanjaya because HE NEEDS TO LEAVE!

Today while sitting in the dentist's chair, I went to my happy place of hot brothers of fandom. Sam & Dean, Nathan & Peter, Chris & Wyatt, the Walker brothers, the Donnelly brothers...it's a very nice place. Even better when I start commanding them to make out with one another. At first, they are wary, give me skeptical looks like, "We only make out with our one true love, our sibling." But I like to spice it up and have Dean make out with Nathan. Or have Sam make out with Tommy Donnelly. It's more fun that way.

Entourage is back on Sunday! Woo-hoo! This is so exciting that we get more episodes before mid-July. I like this new system!

This post was brought to you by really bored and slightly mental.

Ciao.
tommygirl: (blade trinity - king)
Where the heck did this day go so fast? And it's not even eight pm and I'm so damn tired. Stupid weather and sinuses.

I started watching Entourage season two dvds again. Good god, this show is crack. I'm like, "I'll just watch one episode while I defrost" and next thing I know I'm through disc one and ready to start the next one. If Vince wasn't totally in love with Eric, I'd totally try to marry the boy.

Much love to [livejournal.com profile] amy_star_ for the virtual chocolates. i lova ya, hon, and they totally made me smile today. Thank you so much!

So I thought "lazy" was my favorite mood, but this one...yeah, I don't think Dean's sleeping down there.
tommygirl: (jack bauer/sydney bristow)
I fear it's going to be another long Tuesday at work. The only thing getting me through at the moment is the fact that I'm off both Friday and Monday to properly celebrate my birthday. Until I can have it made a national holiday (like it should be...duh), I have to take a few days off. Fun times all around. It doesn't hurt that the weekend is already shaping up to be awesome of awesome with various excursions with different friends and family. Woo-hoo.

I had considered applying for [livejournal.com profile] fandomhigh since so many of my friends partake in it and seem to have a lot of fun with it. However, I just don't have the time to properly give to something like that at the moment. It would be a lot of fun, but I'm so behind on my writing (both fanfiction and regular) that I can't in good conscience sign up right now. It saddens me, but I'm trying to be more logical about what I can/can't handle.

**

Last night I got caught up on both 4400 and Eureka. And maybe watched the episode of Entourage again because I have a problem, an addiction, a great love for Vincent Chase and Ari Gold that cannot be denied.

thoughts on the 4400... )

Eureka continues to be one of those shows that's neither good nor bad, but highly enjoyable. It makes me laugh and sometimes it's just so freaking outrageous that it amuses me. Plus, Fargo is most awesome (aka mouthbreather from Wonderfalls).

And we all know my love for Entourage. This show continues to get better and better. Just when you think you've got a character figured out, they tend to throw you for a loop, and in a way, that's a lot like real life. Not to mention, the friendship between the guys is so central to the show, so real and wonderful. I love it so much.

I haven't seen Prison Break or Vanished yet (aka - Fox night of HOT men), but I hope to watch them soon. PB is one of those shows that I never expected to like as much as I do. I went into it simply because Wentworth Miller is hotness personified. I mean, the premise seemed ridiculous to make a show out of. But by god, it works. And I love it. Vanished could be horrible and I would still watch simply because Gale Harold owns my soul. And you guys should know by now that every decision I make is guided by the promise of very hot boys.

**

Sam and Dean were in my dreams again last night. And once again, my subconscious didn't allow me to make out with them. It was very sad. In the dream, it was just bizarre. Dean had another family aside from John & Sam, and he introduced Sam to them all. Sam got jealous of the other family. And then I woke up. Just freaking weird. I guess that's what happens when one watches The Benders episode before bed.

Dear fanfiction writers,

For the love of God, "lose" and "loose" are very different words. Dean would not be upset if he looses Sam. I'm not even sure what that means. The word is lose. One "O" - now if you wanted to say "Dean decided to loosen the ropes pinning Sam to the bed" that would work.

No love,

Tommygirl

My sister and I rented the first two discs of Prison Break to get ready for Monday night and new episodes. I may or may not have also rented "She's the Man" with Amanda Bynes because I'm a dork.

**

Am highly depressed that there are only two more episodes of Entourage for the season. I think this means y'all should write me some fic. I think there should be some Jensen Ackles/Vincent Chase fic out there. (My birthday is in 10 days, wink, wink. Hee.)

**

Off to do some writing until my sister and I start watching PB. So very behind.
tommygirl: (entourage - the boys)
New season of Weeds premieres tonight. I can't wait. I love it. It cracks me up and the people are so fucking crazy, but in a very believable way that most people are. In honor of the premiere, the best friend, my sister, and I hung out yesterday and watch the first six episodes of season one.

If you have not seen this show, I highly recommend checking it out via Netflix (or other avenues...). It's hysterical stuff. You will laugh and laugh and laugh.

**

I'm pretty sure that everyone and their mama has one by now, but Vox invites. I've got three ONE more left. Just leave me a comment with your email and i'll send it to you.

**

I'm working on a Post Devil's Trapfic for my week at Supernatural Summer and right now it's sorta lingering. I need to finish it so I can go back and focus on my SPN State story (which I haven't forgotten, I swear. It's got a first draft and everything...it's just...well...the first draft sucks.). But I can't seem to get the fic to work the way I want to. Dean's being all stubborn and insisting, "Tommygirl, I wouldn't do that. I'd make out with Sam." And then I point out to him that I'm not really into the incest myself, but he keeps trying to sway me. Damn the Dean voice in my head.

And it's possible that I'm slightly mental.

**

How are there only two more episodes of Entourage left? This show should NEVER not be on with new episodes. I love it so. And this episode with Eric and the Martin Landeau kept cracking me up.

Also, only two episodes left of 4400. Will maybe have thoughts later, but I'm finally enjoying where things are going again.

**

On that note, the day is almost over. So I shall finish up some last minute paperwork and then head home. I need sleep. I found a copy of New Moon at Barnes & Noble and I read the whole thing last night, sleep be damned. Now I'm regretting that decision.

Ciao.
tommygirl: (bsg - starbuck)
Monday mornings are never my favorite, especially when allergies are running amuck. Weekend was okay, not nearly long enough, though I can't recall doing anything aside from watching movies, television, and first season of NCIS.

I've still got to write my CW Kinks/Cliches story this week. It's been awhile since I've written the Jsquared and I'm in the mood for some. I mean, does one ever tire of Jensen and Jared making out? I don't think so. And those boys have made me much more brazen with the porn in my writing. I used to be a total tease with it, okay, still am to an extent, but not as much as I used to be.

Also need to write my SPN State story.

Needless to say there is writing to be done. And I'm not in the mood to do it.

**

Entourage continues to rock my socks, but I'm hardly impartial when it comes to this show. I love it so much. Really people, if you're not watching it, I just can't help you. Because it's that good and awesome and it has Ari and Vince and E and Drama and Turtle.

I haven't seen this week's 4400 yet, so I can't comment on that. But I can't wait to see how Tom, Diana, and the rest of NTAC prove their idiocy this week. Don't get me wrong. Love them dearly, but they have some serious intelligence issues when it comes to investigating. Like my six-year-old little bit could do a better job of running things.

The roommates and I also spent a whole lot of the weekend engrossed in the History Channel's Mega Disasters Marathon. I am now paranoid that one of the following will kill me dead some time soon: super volcano, east coast tsunami, east coast earth quake, or asteroid. These people on this show are the feel good types that everyone wants to be around. Must get them for parties.

"Hey Bob, what's up?"

::Sighs:: "Today I realized that the Yosemite Supervolcano tends to erupt in a 600,000 year cycle and guess what? We're on year 599,999. We're fucking doomed."

"Good to know. Look it's Mike. Better go greet him." ::runs off::

Did not stay up for the premiere of Justin's video on MTV at eleven pm last night. Have to admit that I'm oddly curious to see the video that goes with this song. The song has grown on me, like fungus, and I can't decide if Justin had a moment of brilliance when writing this song or lost his cotton-picking mind.

Based on interviews I've seen going around, I'm going with the latter.

This does remind me that I need to finish Trouble In My Head before I find myself hating the boy and unable to write anything happy for him. And that would make Steph mad. And she would hurt me. And that would be sad for me.

**

In other news I'm having these ongoing dreams lately where I'm an incredible angerball. Even beyond incredible angerball. Like so irrationally angry that in my dream, I'm telling myself, "Dude, what the fuck are you doing? That's a bit of an overreaction to someone borrowing your pen without asking."

I do think it has a bit to do with my roommate situation because I'm so not the type to get pissed off about stupid stuff. I'm much more laid back about things...well, apparently not in my dreams where I start these huge ass fights with people over a freaking pen. How weird?

**

God, I'm boring. I think I need to do some writing to do some writing because at least characters are interesting.

So I'll end this with some pimpage:

-On the Road, a Supernatural Gen Zine is seeking submissions.

-[livejournal.com profile] moviefanfiction is open for all those who enjoy movie fanfiction. So check it out. There needs to be more good movie fic to keep me from crying over at fanfiction.net. And it's all about me, people.

-Swashbuckle-a-thon is open for fandom nominations currently and sign-ups begin on August 3rd. C'mon...who doesn't want to see Sam & Dean as pirates?

-The Norrington Ficathon is being run by [livejournal.com profile] sarkastic, with sign-ups until July 30th. Pretty Norrington needs some love. So go sign up.

**

So now I shall go do some work and wish away the rest of this work day.

Ciao.

Damn you, evil sinuses! ::shakes fist at sky::

I was out sick yesterday after spending Sunday in bed all day, sleeping the day away in hopes of alleviating sinus pain to no avail. I tried the same thing yesterday, but gave up around one in ther afternoon...so the roommate and I watched a few movies. I introduced her to the wonders that is Grind, the skateboarding movie with Adam Brody that never fails to amuse me, and then we watched Playing By Heart, one of my favorite movies of all time.

After that, I attempted to watch some of the new television shows on my DVR:

Psych rocks my socks. Seriously, if you have a sense of humor, you will love this show. And it has Dule in it! Friday nights, USA. (i'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] iamtheenemy)

The Stephen King thing on TNT - Oh my God. Don't watch it. DON'T. I watched the first two parts. The first one with William Hurt there was not one word of dialogue. NONE. And it wasn't done in a clever way either, it was just fucking stupid. And then my sister and I watched the second one because of Eion Bailey. While that episode had dialogue, it was really bad dialogue and an even dumber story. So I wouldn't bother with that. Unless you hate yourself.

Brotherhood on Showtime. Yeah, it's not my thing. I can see how it will probably appeal to some people, but alas, I'm not one of them.

This week I'm giving Eureka a chance on SciFi (tonight, I think). I'll let you know what I think.

And surely you all are thinking, "Just what you need, Tommy...more television."

As for Entourage - I'm marrying Vincent Chase. I am. He can be dumb and an arrogant jackass and such a boy, but he's loyal and principled and oh so adorable. I love him dearly.

I also love Ari, but that is a far different love, and who doesn't love Ari? I mean, is it even possible to not love Ari? I think not.

thoughts on 4400 )

I saw POTC 2 with my mother on Saturday morning. I liked it a whole lot more the second time around. That may have to do with the lack of the crazy phlegm guy behind me, but it was highly entertaining. I mean, I liked it the first time I saw it, but it was just a tad bit long in certain places. That was my only problem with it...and some of the fights are still a bit ridiculous in length, but I think everything else serves a purpose for the next film.

Plus, Orlando Bloom is so freaking pretty. And Johnny Depp is Johnny Depp. And Jack Davenport with scruff is possibly my favorite thing ever. EVER.

**

Alrighty, off to do some work, maybe read some fic, and try to make the end of the day come quickly.

Ciao amigos!

So my evil best friend has gotten me hooked on Project Runway. I accomplished nothing all weekend aside from viewing Pirates of the Caribbean and Superman Returns with the family except for Project Runway ingestion.

I must say that I was quite happy with how it turned out. I loved Daniel and Chloe. They were my favorites, so yay for that.

The show was like crack, people. Santino's Andre/Tim stories, Andre's lack of a filter in his brain to stop him from saying certain things, the drama...it's crack.

Damn my best friend for knowing my weaknesses. She's an evil one. She calls it payback for Wonderfalls, but honestly, did I need more television in my life?

**

Let's talk other television:

spoilers for last night's 4400... )

Entourage owns my soul... )

**

Not much else to report. Regular life is giving me headaches at the moment and work is crazy and fandom has taken a backseat. I'm doing my best to reclaim my own space and stuff (very long stories), but it might be a little bit longer before I'm churning out anything decent to read.

well, aside from my Multiverse story, which I'm terribly worried about at the moment because it's very rough and it's for a writer that I really like and I don't want the story to suck. Fingers crossed that I get it all together (with [livejournal.com profile] iamtheenemy and [livejournal.com profile] ladybug218's help, of course - though they're just learning of this now. hee).

Off to catch up on friends list.

Ciao amigos!
tommygirl: (sports night - vaguely gay)
Very long weekends rock the world. Seriously, my friends, I'm now well-relaxed and happy and I really didn't want my mini-vacation to be over. I got to the casinos before they closed down due to the New Jersey State shut down and lost money at the penny arcade. That's right, I'm a gambler.

Fortunately, the TMA I work for is still open, despite the shut down. really wouldn't be a good time to suddenly have no paycheck coming in. So yay for mostly Federal funding.

And while paychecks are good, alas, my vacation is over and I'm back at work.

I'm way behind on all things fannish related and I feel terrible about it. Hopefully, I'll be able to spend some time focused on fandom fun and the world of livejournal. I'm so behind on so many stories at this point, fortunately none were being written for someone. That's one thing I try not to forget - if someone is counting on a story, I write it.

That said, I'm the worst moderator of the Supernatural Crossover Challenge. So if you're writing a story for it and haven't finished it yet, you've got until this Sunday (July 9th) to get it up in order to be included on the master list. You can post after that, but there are no guarantees that I'll remember to add the story to the masterlist as I'm a forgetful nooch.

**

I think entourage is my favorite show, beyond even veronica mars and supernatural. Yet, I don't find myself compelled to participate in fandom for the show. I love it just as it is. That's not to say that if someone (::glances at her friends list::) were to write an Entourage ficlet/story for my birthday next month, I wouldn't read it. But the show is just...oh, I love those boys. I love them all so much. They amuse me, even when I sit there and think, "Oh, you're such a stupid boy."

So really, I love Entourage a whole freaking lot.

And maybe there should be Jensen Ackles/Vincent Chase fic. Maybe someone should write *that* for my birthday next month. Hee.

**

Speaking of birthdays, I'm terrible at checking to see who's birthday is approaching. I love you all and I'm not ignoring you on your happy day. I'm just really lame and forgetful. However, when people ask/point out/prod/set up communities for birthday fics, I do try to do something for you guys. Because y'all seriously make this experience worthwhile. That said - I'm always late with stories. So by christmas, I might finish your birthday ficlet.

I blame my inability to write drabbles. I'm just too wordy of a bitch.

**

Now I'm off to read my friends list and count down the hours left to my work day. It's a three-day work week for me and yet I lack any will to be productive.

Ciao amigos!
tommygirl: (jack bauer/sydney bristow - 2)
Hey y'all...just a quick update to assure everyone that I'm alive and kicking. Been incredibly busy and therefore am way behind on friends list. So if there is anything I need to know or really good fic that I'd miss, hook a sister up. Otherwise, I apologize for not responding to comments or reading. Bad Tommy, bad!

Hopefully after this week and the completion of the [livejournal.com profile] wip_it_good competition, I shall be available once again. At least, I'm hoping.

In the meantime, I shall leave you with a huge squee about how much I love Entourage and, if you're not watching it, why is that? And don't forget, my fabulous American friends, that Sci Fi is showing Firefly every Friday night to lead up to the movie!

Okay, off to attempt to read as much of the friends list as I can before getting pulled back to tons of work.

Love you all and ciao!
tommygirl: (roswell)
Have spent a large portion of my morning working on the WIP piece. I'm doing pretty damn good these past two days! Woo-hoo. Now the idea is to keep up the pace so that I can get through this damn story. You see, I'm at the part in New Journey where things are starting to be revealed in the plot and Maria has to deal with what's going to happen. So it's an important scene and I just hope I'm doing it justice.

But yesterday after suffering for the first hour, I decided to just go with the flow and worry about everything else in the revision process. That seems to be working much better for me. And I'm kicking some butt.

Now let me keep it up. I asked my fellow pals at [livejournal.com profile] wip_a_team for good mojo and they obliged. So yeah. Fingers crossed for me.

I've also decided to wait until I finish A New Journey in its entirety before posting another chapter. This way the remaining chapters will go up at once and I can do any necessary revision to the early chapters at the same time. But y'all will have it to read ([livejournal.com profile] chickpea!!!) by the end of July!

Also, is it sad that I made myself a progress spreadsheet today for the [livejournal.com profile] wip_it_good challenge? I used one for April Fool's day challenge and it seemed to work and keep me on track - I'm hoping the same works here.

In other news, I'm addicted to Dr. Who. I'm only up to episode four, but it sucked me right in. Oh, evilness! So who knows where I can find some good icons? And then some good fic? Help a Tommy out here, people.

I'm caught up on my Queer As Folk and Entourage as well. I love Entourage so much. Hug it out, bitches! It's the best. As for QAF, the characters are all pissing me off this season so I don't get as excited about it...and I don't like the way people were treating Hunter. Bastards. But Brian is still the hottest man alive. So hot. Gah.

I tivo'd the first two parts of Into the West but haven't had a chance to watch them yet. I wonder how I lived before I had a Tivo. I probably watched a lot less television because I'm so lazy when it comes to taping most things. But I love my Tivo. And I love that it knows me so well and records things that it thinks I'll like because of who's in it.

I'm going to head off for now. I want to get more writing done before my class tonight. I'm hoping to make a lot of progress on the WIP as quickly as possible because I have a few ficathon deadlines for July too. And while those are only required 1000 word stories...I'm a verbose sort of writer. My stories are usually not that short.

Have a great day, y'all!

Ciao.
