I was a taller girl too, once.

My year in review, fic edition. Although I guess I did have a couple of personal big changes in my life, the major one being I starting working a new place, for a company I've really grown to enjoy, despite having to be a party pooper unable to go to all the cool activities arranged for the holidays (partially because I got so incredibly sick a couple of weeks ago the likes of which I hope I never experience again).

So here's a list of fic what I wrote. All glee things, naturally, becaues those are the stories my brain has wanted me to tell. I think I'll try branching out in 2013 if inspiration strikes.

It’s another day, another lesson and he tries very hard to pay attention to his student while something inside him aches faintly, a dream he almost had the night before still haunting him.Collapse )

- I have feedback to answer! That I will probably not be able to do for a bit as I'm about to pass out and sleep for a Damn Good Long While.

- Nearly had a meltdown driving this morning. After picking up groceries (fyi Trader Joe's gluten free cookies are made of angel crack powder goodness), I was heading home when I see that the major road that I need to drive over is blocked off. I think at first it's just that intersection (there are cops around, so hmm, maybe an accident?) so I drive east for a bit to go down the other road (again crossing that damn road). Only to find out that nope, I need to go back up NORTH and take a parkway in order to get to my mom's house WHICH IS TWO MINUTES AWAY from where I was at that point, as I was talking to the cop. Oh. My fucking. God. Why? "There's a car show." I hate everything. Other problem? The parkway I had to take? HAS AN EXIT ON THE GODDAMN BLOCKED OFF ROAD. THAT'S HOW I GET HOME. I LIVE OVER THE ROAD. WHY. I managed to get home, but what takes me 10+ minutes, took me a half hour. RIDICULOUS.

- Sure, you can criticize Once Upon a Time but hey, it makes me ridiculously happy and the S2 premiere served me all the good things I expect. :D

- Tomorrow I will see Looper and if someone manages to spoil me before that, I will break their knees and their children's children's knees.

Alas, Burt had not been able to join them that night or even for a full week, despite Kurt inviting Burt every midday lunch, a meal he always took in private with his father.Collapse )

It's Thorsday!

Which means today I shall see The Dark Knight Returns Rises naturally!

Actually yesterday was totally Thorsday. I work on the top floor of an office building so when the storm kicked up in the afternoon and it started hailing it was pretty nightmarish. I was worried that our windows were going to get busted in. I am about ten feet away from giant panes of glass. >.>

But! Despite the fact that I left my umbrella at home (for lo, I wear the smartest of pants), I managed to run to my subway stop without getting completely soaked. Then I almost walked back out of the subway because it was like walking into rank, hot soup, OH MY GOD, it was seriously disgusting.

So grateful that the weather this morning was so much more bearable.

Just a few hours away from seeing TDKR and I hope that I manage to make it unscatheed from major spoilers (I don't want to know if Batman's parents are dead, okay?). I also hope I stay awake during the movie but that's kind of a tall order. I might fall asleep over at fourfreedoms and sleep in the car, and on the line to the movie, and somehow wake up in time for it to start. Staying up late at night is where I am NOT a Viking.

The Emmy nominations continue to be a mix of huzzah and loud boos. American Horror Story deserves NOTHING except for noms for Jessican Lange and Connie Britton. And they get it more in the "wow you guys elevated really shit material" way of actors surviving terrible, terrible TV. The AV club reviews of AHS will tell you all you need to know about that bullshit show. Ugh.

(I am sort of sad that Matt Bomer didn't get nominated for his turn on Glee. He actually did something revolutionary on S3 of Glee, he decided to act like he was on a comedy and be funny. Mindblowing, I know. I think Dot Marie-Jones is an utter sweetheart but it's kind of messed up that she's getting nominated for her dramatic work on a comedy series - and it was PSA "message" type drama as well. I tend to feel this way whenever dramedy-type actors get nominations for comedy work, though, so.)

I'm allowed to flip pools when Amy Poehler inevitably loses to Zooey Fucking Deschanel for Best Actress. SO MANY POOLS FLIPPED. SO MANY FUN TIMES IN THE SUN DENIED.

I shall root for Peter Dinklage to pick up his Emmy for Game of Thrones despite the fact that Jared Harris was brutally fantastic in Mad Men, but man, Peter Dinklage is amazing on GOT and the Rise and Fall of Tyrion Lannister was an awesome arc for PD to play this season.

Every time Parks and Recreation doesn't get nominated for Best Comedy series, someone drops a delicious pie on the ground, stomps on it, and then feeds it to orphans.

Make it to the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises (in IMAX!) without getting spoiled for the movie.

It's so close. I just have to hope some douche won't leak it where I can't immediately avert myself. Come on. For great Batman-y justice.
