random update

The Art of Vidding Awards Round 5 Winners have been announced - tough judging this time because so many of the vids were of a similar quality. But yay - we finally got a new series DW vid that was actually watchable! (And we got a Xander-centric vid that was well made!) Round 6 is open for submissions but thedothatgirl is surfing right now and won't be able to update the site until she gets back at the start of June. Go, enter! This is the last round before the 'Best of the Best' round and after that we're going to be overhauling the submission categories and fandoms so this is the perfect time to submit!

I have much love for Dark Angel now, can't seem to stop watching it for some reason (and it's not just the Jensen effect because I love season 1 too!) and it's eating into my SPN finale rewatch time!

I've begged an extension for my essay becase it became really clear last night that there was no way I was going to finish it to my satisfaction in time. I will have it done by Saturday evening, I swear!

And finally... wenchpixie recced this astounding vid in her journal and I want to echo it. It's by skeezerbeans1 and is absolutely awesome. It is a complete summation of the overall arc of Supernatural seasons 1 and 2. Therefore there are spoilers for the finale - if you have not seen the finale, don't watch the vid yet. Just don't. (monkey_matt, this means you). If you have seen the finale, go, watch, stand back and say "This is why I love this show..." (eta wenchpixie has the YouTube version imbedded in her journal, or you can download it from the link I posted above - if you like the vid, please give feedback!)

ETA Yeah, I know I said finally, but I've been spammy enough the past few days so I'm editing this with memes!
aditu_az tagged me with the 8 random things about me meme the other day, here we go! (I'm not tagging anyone by the way - if you want to do it feel free!)

1 – My name is the result of a combination of my sister deciding she didn't like the name my parents had chosen for me, and the fact that the registry office was closed for an extended new year break so by the time I was actually registered, Sis had worn them down and they named me Shona. I should have been Janet. I'm glad Sis won that argument.

2 – I saw my first dead body when I was 3. I still remember it clearly, in fact it's one of my earliest memories. That give you some kind of clue as to why I'm in therapy? *g*

3 – I am never happy with my hair. In the last five years it has been a variety of lengths and colours (randing from almost right down my back and red, to shoulder-length and black, to short and blonde like it is now). I'm thinking about growing it out again already. (And I have no idea what my natural colour is anymore!)

4 – The first proper story I ever wrote was actually fanfiction. I was seven or eight and it was a Nancy Drew story. I kid you not. (I didn't like Nancy Drew, she was kinda lame, I preferred the Hardy Boys).

5 – I will not ever fold over the corner of a page in a book. Ever. I will do my damndest not to crease the spine of a book. I get *really* angry with people who do, so I very rarely lend anyone books.

6 – I love cooking, I'm good at cooking, but I live off of pizza most of the time…

7 – I screen all of my calls on my home phone. All the time.

8 – I've run out of things to think of so I'll go with the old languages fallback. I can pick up any Romance or Germanic language really quickly. It's a knack I have that I've never understood and never really exploited other than to see if I could do it.

And this one's been around my flist for the last few days but I c/p'd it from unhobbityhobbit
