gleee is the new black  
5 good things about today:

1. BOSTON RED SOX WIN GAME 1!! Curt Schilling, Kevin Millar, Manny, Johnny... I love you all like the crazy fangirl I am. As is Kappa tradition (1 year is a tradition!) to knit frantically during postseason games to avoid clawing furniture and other people, I am knitting actual red socks.

2. Watched Vice-Presidential Debate. This fandom-based concept of licking people has eluded me up until now, but I really want to lick John Edwards. My dad didn't even think it was weird that I said that out loud. Why can't those two run for President instead?

3. Correspondence with lisayeager. MAINE!!

4. A.j. and I created "pants!verse: Delta Quadrant." Apparently the new mission of our friendship is to seek out and destroy all self-inflicted-by-stupidity-character-angst and replace it with squeee. NO SHOW IS SAFE. ... Except maybe B5, because I have no idea how anyone could turn that one into a bundle of well-adjusted psyches and happy squeee.

5. Am wrapped in down comforter right now.

3 things I did well:

1. Invented new exciting dish for dinner!

2. Went to shortest doctor's appointment in the history of the universe with nutritionist. Am on the right track!

3. Went intrepidly to various shopping centres.


And thus begins seven months of my mood being "cold." *looks forward lots to first woodstove fire...*

p.s. Go Pedro! Game 2! Eeee!
 
 
feel: coldcold
hear: it's all in my head

GOoooooo Sox!
Little Red: cute when sick - duckadorkmylittleredgirl on October 6th, 2004 03:26 pm (UTC)
YAY!!

And boo to the fever and chills. Ew. Yuck. Try to think of it like free drugs? Or is it not the fun/scary hallucinatey fever?
elly: oh canadaelly427 on October 6th, 2004 07:17 am (UTC)
More proof we might be the same person from different universes or something like that: as I watched part of the vp debates, I turned to my roomate and said (refering to Edwards): "I LOVE that man. He's hot." And she just mmmhmm'ed.

And I'm CANADIAN.

*offers Vancouver weather to warm you. Though it's cold and rainy right now*

And I think I want a pants!verse for my life. Stupid fictional characters getting to have all the fun. Hrmph.
Little Red: monastery - ellymylittleredgirl on October 6th, 2004 03:29 pm (UTC)
We are the same person! And heeee!

*offers Vancouver weather to warm you. Though it's cold and rainy right now*

You know, I've actually been told by people that Vancouver would be *the worst* place for me to live, weather-wise (although they seem to think I would adore it in every other way). I can't stand late fall -- I hate it when it's cold and there's no snow. Tell me I'm wrong so I can come live in Vancouver?

And I think I want a pants!verse for my life.

Amen, sister. "You know... a little of *my* personal angst could be relieved with a little heavy petting among friends..."

B5 has to be fucked up and angsty, else it is no fun. But hey, John and Delenn were happy for a while.

Note to self: Lots of Johns and Jonathans in t.v. SF. It's a manly name. :p
Little Red: gimme hope lizzie - nostalgiamylittleredgirl on October 6th, 2004 03:32 pm (UTC)
Yep! That was pretty much my thought. John and Delenn have the pants!verse thing kinda down -- crap was happening all around them and in their past, but they successfully ignored the warangst and the GIANT ELEPHANT in the room that was their Minbari War history, and had lots of cute, cute love time.

As for everyone else... I tried to untangle it and really only got as far as Franklin. If he had a honey, he might not have gone quite so far off the deep end. Even then, though. All of them would find ways of shooting the squeee in the foot. My OTP for that show (and yes, it is "mine" in the sense that "no one else gets it at all") is Talia/Garibaldi, and that is just SO insanely fucked up that I have no idea how there will ever be squeee without tears.

John *is* a manly name!

Maine!!

:-D
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on October 7th, 2004 12:10 am (UTC)
MAINE!!!

I will go over everything and hit you up with my details tomorrow :)

Sounds great!!

:-D

But I thought zombies were the new black.
And thus begins seven months of my mood being "cold."

This is the time of year when my dad starts sending me emails every week bragging about how warm it is on Vancouver Island and asking me if it's snowing here yet. As if I need any more reasons to wish I were there.

I have a new gleee!fan. (Not the wee insane college girl, but sesaworuban.) Hurrah! Now to convert her to doing her own gleee list.
"We are the Gleee. You will be assimilated. Your biological and technological joyfulness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile."
(You can have technological joy, right? "I love my optical mouse OMG!")
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on October 7th, 2004 12:16 am (UTC)
We are Gleee of Five.

*gasp* That bitch! ;)

OH MY GOD. Your Borg!gleee is *AMAZING*. Amazing. *dies laughing*

And wheeee! Gleee!converts! I am so happy about this :) This means I get to hear about more of other people's gleee, so it's a selfish happiness, but still -- YAY!!!

And Farscape, because dude. Well-adjusted? Not so much. :)
Valerie - Postmodern Pollyanna: laughwiliqueen on October 6th, 2004 02:14 pm (UTC)
And yet there can be much squee in the absense of well-adjusted. 'Cause it's just that kind of show.

B5, however? Only by going back in a time machine and giving JMS lots and lots and lots of heavy-duty pharmaceuticals...

"And then, in Season 3, we discover that the Psi Corps *are*, in fact, a benevolent entity whose sole purpose is to have potluck socials for telepaths and weekly stitch n' bitches. Also, the Shadows are just misunderstood and will be made better when the Vorlons hug them, because all you need is LOVE. Wanna hit off my bong, man?"
Little Red: gimme hope lizzie - nostalgiamylittleredgirl on October 7th, 2004 12:17 am (UTC)
I missed that one... I will have to go visit lyssie someday and get indoctrinated, I am told. You know, the next time I'm like "I need some more dysfunctional sci-fi angst in my life!" It happens.

hard frost, yo.
There must be more squee (and Gleee) everywhere!

Me, and the hundreds of thousands of fourteen year olds on ff.net, totally got into fanfic for this express purpose. "Er... world is saved often enough. Can they go have some cuteness and fun now?"

But really, I have no idea if I could even write B5 fluff. I should try. But even in the random squeeefullest of the squeee, there would still HAVE to be an overshadow of DOOM, because it's that kind of show and they're those kind of people. (And my personal I-am-so-alone-in-this OTP is Talia/Garibaldi... which just... this can't end well. I want it to. But it can't.)

John/Delenn and Sinclair/Catherine Sakai (squeee!) could have their moments of angst-free entertaining cute -- especially the former during certain seasons because John is kind of a goofball sometimes. But... still. It's like you think "B5" and "looming dark cloud of impending disaster" is understood.

As much as I love my Halos, Schilling+Martinez is really difficult to beat in a five-game series, even if we had Kennedy, Quinlan, and Guillen.

I'm rooting for whoever wins this series to take it all.
Little Red: believe - meg142mylittleredgirl on October 7th, 2004 12:25 am (UTC)
Yeah, the Angels have so many injuries to contend with :( I guess Boston was lucky to have them at the beginning of the year, and we are massively lucky that we still made it to post-season.

I'm rooting for whoever wins this series to take it all.

This I can get behind :)

*looks forward lots to first woodstove fire...*

ooooohhh... Nice woodfire. On the cast-iron stove in our livingroom in front of the original fireplace.
Well, eventually that's the plan. Of course, after we finish pouring cement in the basement to make the workbench to use to make the new bathroom (domino-effect in full force here). And then to convert the old bathroom into a nursery. Hm. More like toddler-room by now, seeing that she'll be 2 before that room is ever done. Sigh. Tub has been in living room for almost 2 years now. I think I'm going to call is "nouveau art".

Oooh! Betsy and I had some architect friends who put the bathtub in their bedroom. We thought that was kinda cool. Living room is equally classy :)

And wow, any domino-effect that involves pouring cement is very impressive. "Karin! We finally finished your room! So... you can use it whenever you come home from college, okay?" And with that terrifying thought, I will stop this comment reply now!
miekecmiekec on October 8th, 2004 05:14 pm (UTC)
Eeeeeeek! Sounds like an image of one of my nightmares about this project.

I do like the idea of a tub in the bedroom. but that implies it was *meant* to go there.
Yeah, the cement will be cool. If all works the way it's supposed to, that is. And if not, I will probably get to laugh at two guys, covered in grey goo and looking pitiful. Even though that does sound funny, I think I'd still rather have the floor properly cemented. Choices, choices...

5. Am wrapped in down comforter right now.

::jealous::

Can I join you
Little Red: fluffier than thou - lyssiemylittleredgirl on October 7th, 2004 12:34 am (UTC)
Of course you can join me! I in fact just went out and bought a comforter of my own (the one on my bed now is borrowed from another room in the house), and it is KING sized for a very small bed with the intention that it be folded over a lot. Yay! I will either be warm and happy or totally unable to untangle myself and get out of bed in the morning.

*eyes livejournal* Post, yo!

David... Corwin? And if you come back and are all "Um, dude, you are dumb and the main character of the show was named David, idiot" I will feel very embarrassed, but if you are writing David Corwin I will fucking fangirl you FOREVER, because I heart him. Madly. Poor guy.
