life begins - me

I miss email...

IT are working on our Outlook server right now so I have no email. I also have no reminders of tasks or calendar appointments or anything and I'm sure there's lots of important stuff I have to be doing right about now...


Watched Doctor Who last night - funny/sad/brilliant. One question though - okay those costumes had to be clunky and hard to run in, but why did they CGI the aliens at one point and not others?! Just bizarre! But the whole scene with "I could save the world, but lose you." When did Doctor Who get so touchingly schmaltzy? And the little "We have detected weapons of destruction which can be activated within 45 seconds" - when did Doctor Who get so blatantly political?!


I have a favour to ask two of you - emeraldswan and rileysaplank, would you mind looking over a little prologue to a new fic I wrote this morning. (Wrote the prologue, not the actual fic yet!) Yes, another new fic - although this one's been bubbling under the surface for a while now - I just decided to stop trying to force the other ones and just write what wanted to be written - this one was the result! (750 ish words in under an hour - not too bad for someone as out of practice as I seem to be right now!)

And I need to start eating proper breakfasts. Seriously, I can barely hear myself think over the sound of my stomach growling right now!

That five questions meme

So everyone else is doing it, who am I to rock the boat?

1. If you want to play, leave a comment on this entry.
2. I will ask you five questions.
3. Post the answers in your journal along with these instructions.
4. Then people will pester you to ask them questions.

Oh - and if I missed your post or if you just wanna know? Feel free to ask me your five questions here!

Sure as anything, I know this. I aim to misbehave.

Serenity trailer.... You Can't Stop The Signal

Oh. My. Sweet. Lord.


A prize goes to the first person to help me identify the music in the trailer - I know it, it's a current release (or upcoming) in the UK and it's bugging me now! edit Gah! I can't believe I didn't get this straight away - It's Kasabian, Club Foot. My love for this film grows exponentially for using this on the trailer! (I'm spelling phonetically now - sorry!)

edit Seriously - this is a great line:

"Define interesting?"

"Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die?"


I can't wait till Friday when I can see this trailer on a big screen and oooo and ahhhh along with hundreds of other Browncoats!!!!

Final edit of the night - if someone caps this trailer you will be elevated to the role of God King. I will worship at your feet. (lots of shots I want a still of but the one that springs to mind instantly? Jayne - Let's be bad guys)

really final edit - if anyone can get me a clear shot of the 'call-back' button Wash rigs up in 'Out of Gas', you will become a prince among men, or a princess among women - your choice!

I made an icon.... literally just now - on my laptop which was running on batteries meaning my screen was darker than usual so the icon's more yellow than I intended it to be and the animation is a little faster than I'd like. I'll redo it again later but hey - if you want it? It's yours!
