  • Mood:

*bleugh* and *pimp*

Feel like crap this morning, have a really sore throat for some reason - felt it coming on yesterday but put it down to me running out of antihistamines (hayfever gives me an itchy roof of the mouth thing - I figured the throat was an extension of that) but I'm now medicated and my throat feels like someone's had a go at it with a power sander (with high grade sandpaper). Probably not helped by the fact that Dram is turning into a night owl. Sleeps right through the whole day so that he can wake me up two hours after I get to sleep, and again at three am and again (and this is the killer one) at five to five. My alarm is set for 5.30, when he wakes me up 35 minutes before that it's not worth even trying to get any more sleep. It's his lampshade that does it, it scrapes against every single vertical surface in the room and then gets him trapped under the bed (lampshade = the cone thing he has on around his neck to stop him scratching at his eye). I think I'm going to take him to the vet tonight 'cause there's a little bit of... seepage, shall we say, at the corner of his eye. It's probably just his tear duct not getting a chance to clear 'cause his eyelids are sewn together but I want to check it out anyway. He has another week before the vet is going to take the stiches out so it's another week of him bumping into things and tearing the wallpaper off my walls (accidentally, the lampshade gets caught on a loose edge and it tears). Joy.

So now that I've bored you with my (again) lousy health and Dram, let me catch your interest again with the Old Friends With Indiscretions Willow/Xander ficathon Round Two Sign-Ups! (Okay, that sounded catchier in my head...) I'll be signing up once I come up with what I want and what I don't want, so come join in!

And while I have my *pimp* hat on, there's a new graphics contest open for Doctor Who iconers - martha_stills - first challenge has been posted but they need more members - go join!

And another pimp - the Rose Tyler ficathon. I'm tempted by this a lot, the two things that are stopping me are 1)I'm already committed to two ficathons around the same time and 2) most of the sign ups so far are shippy in nature and we all know how I feel about that... I'm going to ponder some more on this. Or maybe someone should set up a multifandom 'gen' ficathon? 'Cause I'd be all over that like a rash... will not set up a ficathon, I have too many other things to do and it just seems like a really stressfull thing to run

<List the first ten movie/tv quotes that pop into your head. They must be from different movies/tv shows. Don't think too hard. At the end, tag five people to do the same:

1 – All of these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. – Roy Batty. Bladerunner

2 – She is really starting to damage my calm. Jayne Cobb, Serenity

3 – Rose, before I go, I just want to tell you, you were fantastic, absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I. – The Doctor (Ninth), Doctor Who (betcha thought I’d go with a tenth quote didn’t you?)

4 – I don’t have a choice. I’m a puppet. The universe sticks its hand up my butt and if I don’t dance people get hurt. – Jaye, Wonderfalls

5 – You ended that sentence with a preposition! Bastard! – Jack O’Neil, SG-1

6 – When I’m in command, every mission is a suicide mission! – Zapp Brannigan, Futurama

7 – Death to videodrome! Long live the New Flesh! – Max Renn, Videodrome

8 – Whoever wrote this episode should die! – Gwen Demarco, Galaxy Quest.

9 – Brother Justin: I’m reminded of the phrase, ‘making a deal with the devil’.
Tommy Dolan: Oh come on now, I’m not that bad.
Brother Justin: No, no, you’re not. – Carnivale

10 – Have you all forgotten that we crashed on this island? It’s like none of you want to go home again! – Bernard (and half the viewing audience), Lost


*g* not tagging anyone, but if you want to do it? Go for it! (and yes, there are no BtVS quotes in there because I couldn't limit it to one, hell I couldn't limit it to ten!
