lillbet: (Like Liz Lemon)
For the first time in longer than I can remember, I got a full night's sleep. And woke up at a reasonable hour. Now if I could just tear myself away from my laptop and get some more RL shit done. Hah.

I really think they should have called the movie based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' book "John Carter of Mars", and not just "John Carter", which sounds like a story of a white man with a briefcase. :p

Watching the "It Gets Better" documentary on MTV. They showed some wonderful and inspiring stories, but the best quote is "It doesn't get better, YOU get stronger." Amen to that.

lillbet: (Happy tea!)
1.) Opened a Hotmail account to use it for selling things on craigslist. First to go (I hope) a pair of black leather stiletto boots I haven't worn in ages. They're in good enough shape, I guess, I just don't wear them. If no takers, amma make someone at the Goodwill REAL happeh. Want them? They're size 6.5, I'm charging $75 for them, and they'd be the finishing touch to a killer Halloween costume, or be the perfect footwear for your next date night with a wrap dress or pretty much anything.

2.) New season of Being Human starts this weekend. "New" for the slack ass fangirl who hasn't already seen it online. :P

3.) Just had a really lovely chat on FB with a very supportive friend. Love that. Sadly, we chatted right through the golden hour between 10am and noon when they (ie Jess) say is the best time to apply for jobs. Dang. DANG THE TORPEDOES. Doing it anyway, before another week goes by.

4.) Loving "Smash"- it's like "Glee" for grownups with lots of Broadway star power (Christian Borle! Megan Hilty!) and pretty boys. And Jack Davenport talking in his regular accent. WHICH IS ACCENT OSOM.

5.) Got tired of wearing sneakers all the time, so I went to DSW and bought some flats: 2 pairs of sparkly Steve Maddens, 1 pair of Taryn Roses with flowers, and 1 pair of metallic Kenneth Cole Reactions with bows. Used a coupon on the KCs, which I can wear to work, but not sure about the other three. Don't need two pairs of shoes that are the same color AND basic style. Also? Can't really be buying $100 ballet flats. Will come to grips with this. Eventually...

lillbet: (foolish fun)
ETA: Oh EXCELLENT. So first I can't post on LJ, now I can't edit on LJ. I can enable comments, but... srsly, guys?

1.) Couldn't sleep, watching Graham Norton- old episode with Colin Farrell, Rihanna, some guy from Wales I honestly don't know (Oh, Rhod Gilbert! Nope, still don't know him.), and Daniel Radcliffe (they found a guy in the audience who looks like him to be a standin until DanRad swings by after he walks the red carpet for HP:DH 1 or 2). Anyway, moved to post because Colin Farrell was shilling LONDON BOULEVARD. I am ENRAGED about this, let me tell you WHY:

Random blather under a cut for length. )

2.) Tried on some clothes yesterday because, well, I have nothing to wear to work today. I have one pair of pants I can wear, and I thought I'd really like a dress so I tried on a bunch at Ann Taylor. I've gained SO much weight that, well, *whine* *moan* whatevs. I'm the biggest I've ever been, I'm terribly out of shape, and I've got three batches of citrus curd in the fridge which I very much enjoyed making, but it occurs to me that as much fun as I had cooking it, I've really got to start jarring the stuff and giving it away, because just having it in the fridge seems to have added to my weight issues (What? It's butter, eggs, sugar, and juice cooked on the stove and it's SCRUMMY on the scones I have in the freezer. SCRUMMY. Dammit. And sitting about all weekend with the laptop and the rain did not help things.

Anyway, didn't buy the stuff I tried on because most of it wasn't on sale, was a size that I'm not happy about (will get over that shortly, but buying a $100 "fat dress"? Ugh.), and the salesgirl did a shit job of taking care of me. I used to work retail, and if you want to make your sales goals you don't just start a dressing room for someone and then disappear, you CHECK ON THEM. Especially if the person has brought you an armload of clothes and has a store card and is not afraid to use it.

Also, I AM ANNOYED because the curd is just not coming out how I want it to- creamy and opaque. It's delicious, but it's transluscent and gelatinous, which is what I see at the store, but at ABC Kitchen the lemon curd was thick and closer to fruit butter or clotted cream in terms of texture. Actually, last batch I made was pretty close- could be a touch brighter, but of the three it's the closest. One more batch and I should have it down. One. more. batch. *wibble*

4.) OOH. NEW GLEE PROJECT AVAILABLE ON ONDEMAND. It aired less than 12 hours ago and now I CAN HAZ WATCH. I already know the outcome for this ep, but it's the journey, bb. (Yeah, I'm not reviewing these any more, but I'm still watching.) And jsyk, the spoilers for who got booted in 'Generosity' were wrong. And I'm glad. :)

5.) Seeing promos for "Win Win", "Just Peck", and the incredibly amazing looking "BURKE AND HARE" which will probably do poorly because Americans have no sense of humor about grave-robbing. Srsly, UK-ians, stop with the fighting and get back to making awesome cultural contributions. I beg you.

Agh. I think I'm just going to shower, pop some Advil and go in early today. Happy Monday folks!
lillbet: (Goofy.)
1.) And, just as soon as the trend caught steam, proof that it is coming to an end: "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead"? SRSLY?

*scampers off to read the copy of "P&P&Z" that her dad gave her for her birthday*

2.) Taylor Swift is Bella Swan in... FIRELIGHT (starts with a beer commercial, so lower the volume- trust me):

3.) Random, but I find it strange that the new Volvo ads featuring New Moon clips are all about the "understated elegance" and beauty of a Volvo, and features clips of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart cut to look like they are a romance for all time. Did they read the books? Rly? Because the books I read featured a weak-willed protagonist and her stalker-y boyfriend. Just sayin'.

Think Smeyer knew what she was doing when she first put the word "Volvo" in her books?
1.) "Dollhouse" last night was totally bent. Topher finally faced some consequences for being flip with Sierra. Good. He's too snotty for his own good sometimes.

2.) "White Collar" (new USA show) was good. Slashers will have a field day, but they shouldn't count Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen) out- she's pretty cool.

3.) Put off Ren Fair until tomorrow- the last day- because it was supposed to rain liek whoa today. GUESS WHAT "IT" IS NOT DOING?! Fuck.

4.) Made some dark chocolate fudge and am waiting obsessively for it to cool so I can try some.

5.) ZOMBIE WALK IN TWO HOURS! YAYZ! Man, this icon is getting a workout. I SHOULD HAVE A ZOMBIE TAG!
