tahariel: (Make something)

I'm coming up to the end of the current part of Everyday Love in Stockholm and I'm trying to decide if the name for the next part is terrible or not. Like most things it just popped into my head and won't leave.

Opinions? Here are the current part names with the new one at the bottom. Behind cut for minor spoiler.

Naming parts is haaaaard )

tahariel: (Retard oh no)

I have been racking my brain trying to remember the name of this film, and google isn't helping, so I thought I'd apply to the hive mind and see what comes out :)

It was a French film, released in the UK IN 2011 I think, about a young woman in a sort of urban fantasy world where she fights monsters and there are mummies and zombies or something? And she carts a zombie around in a wheelchair? I only saw the trailer, never quite got to see it but I really want to.

Anyone have any idea what I'm on about?

Every time I start getting cocky and feeling very clever - oh, the cleverness of me! - I do something so utterly retarded and fall on my face. I like to think it's the universe keeping me humble.

Could you guys help me out? I'm writing a sample movie review for that blogging job I'm trying out for but I could do with somebody else taking a look. It's short and below the cut! You know you want to, right? I've reviewed the movie Hanna, but don't worry if you haven't seen it I want your opinion anyway.

Okay so having a day off in the middle of the week was a bad idea, now I really REALLY don't wanna go to work today

tahariel: (Star Trek - Kirk - Fuck my life)

Worst start to a morning today :(

  • Dark Tower movies/TV shows cancelled by the studio
  • Borders US is shutting down too, meaning B&N is essentially in control of deciding which books will be published due to having near exclusive yay or nay on buying
  • My DVD of Fassy getting groped by a bear, like, a lot (apparently he raises it and is it's Mommy but I am telling it like it is) was incorrectly in the DVD company's inventory and it won't arrive for this weekend when I wanted it. ( I did later find a dl but it was a struggle.)
  • My Coke can sprung a leak and sprayed me and I was late for work

    You'll all sponsor me, right?

    tahariel: (X-men - Storm thunder)

    It is kind of funny but my colleague went to see X-men First Class last night and came in today and said he thought it was "rubbish and flat and not an X-men movie."

    My response: Algxgksoydyldjkfkdgstsigkgv!

    It would be fair to say I frothed at the mouth with fannish outrage. I can laugh at myself but he is SO WRONG OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIS BRAIN DOES HE HAVE A TUMOUR???

    Anyone fancy Rupert Everett in Pygmalion in London, first week or two of July, £35? Hopefully the 19.30 on Friday 1st. I'll go alone if not but figured someone else must fancy him at least a little :D

    ETA: [livejournal.com profile] sillyshy is in London and wants to come so we will be going for the Monday 27th performance instead at 7.30pm. To get the discount I'll be booking tonight so any other takers should let me know tout suite :)

    tahariel: (Lurgy)

    When I decided to spend today in my flat in my pyjamas doing nothing and flaking out watching movies, having a rotten cold and spending the whole night tossing and turning with two duvets on and trying to escape a stress dream where I kept trying to book tickets to the opera but my computer kept crapping out and then there weren't any but I'd promised my Dad that i'd take him was not what i had in mind.

    Nonetheless, [livejournal.com profile] zoeiona and me went to the English National Opera last night (hmm, dream, I wonder where you might have come from!) to see their production of Verdi's Simon Boccanegra, which was very well staged. Unfortunately it seems as though they must have seriously abridged it, because there were these huge chunks of exposition projected onto a screen they put down whenever they were changing the set, which made it quite lurching story wise. It was worth it for £20 though, and I'd definitely go again if they do another offer like that.

    tahariel: (Do what I say!)

    Everyone should check out my friend Dan's videos of his recent three-town tour, in which he played the lead in a one-man one-woman production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Not only is he an awesome singer, actor and all-around bloke, but it's a show about an angry german transvestite who wears leather and a giant US flag cape! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT.

    Seriously though, it was a fab show and I super enjoyed it. I hope you do too! Also later this year he's going to be doing a three-man show in four or five towns around the UK, which I am going to be helping to produce, so you have to come if we go anywhere near you, okay?

    In other unrelated statements, I may be overestimating your interest but would anyone want to see a tour of my wardrobe, if I were to take pictures and annotate them in a humorous manner? (Mostly this is so I can show you my favourite clothes in there, I will be honest.)

    So was feeling pretty good today, sun is shining, wearing rainbow socks.

    Then on my way through the building to work a lady from one of the offices recognised me from working at the hospital.

    I HATE IT. I have worked so hard to have that be nothing to do with me any more that being recognised has really upset me. Also she gave my socks a funny look. ARGH.

    Normally people are very good with cuts. Apparently this time not so much, huh.

    tahariel: (Queen of the Retards)

    Went to see my friend Dan's one-man show of Hedwig and the Angry Inch tonight, and as expected it was totally amazing. Dan is super talented so it was great to actually see him perform.

    Unfortunately I volunteered for a mini contest during the show, not knowing that the first round was to be a 'who can drink a pint fastest' competition. As most of you know, I don't drink at all and never have. However, not wanting to spoil Dan's show by balking, and being really, really competitive, I downed about 7/8ths of a pint in under 30 seconds and only lost to the other guy because I had to stop to breathe.

    This is really horrible. Why do people do this on purpose? My knees got all wobbly immediately and I'm all hot and flushy like I get when I'm ill and it's just really horrible. I feel like there's something disgusting inside me and then I had to drink a pint of water my friend Sally gave me and now I have too much liquid inside me and I'm all sloshy. I drove myself home fine (I'm mentally fine and my legs are better than they were at first) and I'm okay but this is just really horrible and I definitely don't want to do this again. Why do you like this, drinking people?! Bleurgh. I've eaten a bowl of cereal and drank the milk and I'm going to bed now. If I wake up with a hangover I will be seriously unimpressed.

    On the plus side, my friends promised not to tell Dan how rubbish I feel, so at least I helped him feel confident on stage and made the show go well for that little part.

    (Yes, I'm a lightweight, as I always suspected. But in my defence I never drink alcohol and downed that pint in under 30 seconds. And I nearly won, dammit. If I hadn't had to stop to breathe I would have won. And I really wish I had won, even though this is horrible, because I really, really like to win. Yes this is dumb. No I don't care.)

    tahariel: (Typewriter loves you)

    I have started and deleted and started and deleted this post about five times now so I figure I'll just wing it and see. Nothing terrible, don't worry!

    I'm looking for somebody to help me with my novel project. I sat down this week to reread what I've done so far- gain some perspective, see where I've been and work out what needs doing- but the more I read the more certain I've become that I need somebody to sit down with it, read it and give me an honest critique of the damn thing, discuss the problems I see with it and help me think through what to do about them.

    Some of you guys ([livejournal.com profile] ionaonie in particular) have already read it and told me a few things, but I really feel the need for an in-depth breakdown of it, and that's why I thought I'd ask and see if anybody would be willing to help me out.

    It's about 45k words at the moment, fantasy novel with a romantic theme, and it's got dragonbirds and tree cities and fighting off wyverns and almost-but-not-quite-kissing and pretty ladies who are also dragonbird riders and men with big swords and guns (heh) and lizard people in it! WHO WOULDN'T WANT THAT IN THEIR LIFE, RIGHT? RIGHT? (oh god please be interested other human beings!

    Anybody up for a try? I'll owe you a big favour of your choosing (not a turn of phrase, like I will actually help you out with something in return.)

    tahariel: (Washing machine)

    So I finally made my mind up to get rid of my favourite belt.

    Why?, I hear you cry, if it's your favourite?

    Because the damn thing has made little holes in ALL MY SHIRTS. ARGH. It's been going on for ages but. Just found a whole cluster of them in one of my best (and most expensive) tops and enough is enough. I've superglued the holes so they won't spread (sewing would be way obvious) but I canna take no more, Cap'n. I like my tops too much.

    Guess I need a new belt.

    This entertaining post brought to you by staying up way too late every night and being sooooo tiiiiired at work every day this week.

    tahariel: (Writing)

    Under the strict (and scary!) orders of [livejournal.com profile] leviathans_moon, I did some actual for-reals writing tonight.

    I know, I'm stocking up for the apocalypse too.
