coley_merrin: (David Guitar Hero)
Up to the moment update. :)

As per my icon, David Cook is now not only the one and only American Idol (hallelujah!)... he is also my pants-less Guitar Hero. The man has a fantastic voice, a great smile, sexy legs... In fact, the only thing he doesn't have... is me. Le sigh. I have done my appropriate amount of happy weeping over subsequent finale-watchings. I have sympathetic tear ducts, and the second he got emotional, and then his mom, and then his brother, and then he sang, and smiled... What was I supposed to do? Needless to say, I'm thrilled. I feel like my baby is all grown up and saving China taking the music industry (or iTunes at least) by storm. Can't wait till he has a single that's not the songwriter's winning song, and see how far he can go. Is it too much to hope that Lionel Richie will put a bug in someone's ear and we'll get a full single of "Hello"?

In similarly exciting news, albeit in a more tangible way, sometime around this time give or take a day or so next week I'll be living it up in a place called Washington that is not the state. I.e.... D.C. I.e. whatever chunk of Virginia got carved out to be said joyful spot. Living up our nation's past and present and seeing all the places I've never seen before except in pictures. Monuments! People! Things! And that's only leg one of fabulouso trip o' vacation and birthday. Clearly, more updates and things to come. I'm a little fuzzy on the geography of the area, having never been.  More exciting than the places and things is the company, as our own wondiferous  [personal profile] crystaltear will be shepherding me and living up said vacation with me.  Later on, we will be joined by [profile] miakamouse to explore the wilds of The City.  And trains.  And cool things.  Here's hoping my flabby, tub of couch potato physique stands up to the urban hiking. 

To that end I've been playing with my Wii Fit the past few days to see if I can't build some (minute) stamina over the next five days.  My thighs feel the burn, which considering I'm playing a Nintendo game and frequently get ultra SMASHED by the super hula hooping is a sad thing.  Seriously.  It's like three minutes straight of zooming your hips around in circles.  By the end of that, I'm hanging on by a thread to remember which way my hips are twirling.  I do that firmly with my door closed.  No one needs to see my rear making revolutions.  Perhaps I should do it without pants?  No, no.  Just Mr. Cook.  Could he do his concert without pants?  If I said pretty please?  Right.  Back on subject.

Also, excitingly, my Kyou Kara Maou fic is doooooooooooone.  Posted, out the door, edited, finito.  I'm so excited.  That was a long labor and delivery, but it was worth it.  And because Loyce has big, fluttery eyelashes, I have been of late immersed in writing fic for "Avatar."  Yes.  Yes, I know.  I know.  Zuko, say hello to Katara.  Katara, say hello to Zuko.  Muses, start your engines.  I don't really understand my brain, but as the fiction is rolling, I do not question.  Any fiction rolling anywhere is fiction rolling.  And bless me, that's a good feeling.

Dear Murata Ken,

If you would like me to continue to write anything with your name on it, please do kindly shut up and let me go to sleep.

The end.

(Who signed me up for this writing gig, and how do I make it stop? I often think this makes a great spectator sport, where people watch the virtual sporting matches in our heads, point, laugh, and still get to go home with knick-knacks to pass on to their grandkids. Whereas we, inhabitants of said head, flail and hide until the next ball starts to fly. At which point we wave at it ineffectually. With dried spaghetti.)

But if what I say is true, and you pass this chance... )

I have the sneaking suspicion that chapter 8 of this fic will be written before chapter 7 is finished... for various reasons, the foremost among them being the issues of smut. And... when one of the characters decides he wants to tell you how it should be done, and you're pointing in opposite directions, I do not get far while he is totally un-phased by the fact that I am the writer. Me. (Take that, fate, now give me my aggressive muse back!) I can't imagine which one that would be.

Me: Little pipsqueak.

Heather: He's not so...

Me: LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU LA LA LA...

I just spent the last 30 minutes on the couch looking like I'd been pole-axed and still got no further than conversation, of which there is a good portion. They've reduced me to slack-jawed idiot. P.S. this cannot spill into a chapter nine. People. And it won't. The power of the editors tool is in my hand and I'll use it, just see if I don't. So there. Nyah.

And now for a post that doesn't involve the family! And unlocked, which is, I must say, quite a novelty indeed.

I have more volumes of Fruits Basket sitting behind me, which is quite exciting. There is a point in the manga which I have not read beyond, so seeing anything "new" is exciting. Even if I know general plot and what happens. It's rather like getting new Hana Kimi volumes... though I've read them all before (at least twice) it's still new again. Also have more xxxHolic... And that's definitely a series to which I reached a point and haven't passed it yet. I re-downloaded all of the anime, though, so I may make the big push and do some Holic-ing. (for which the title finally makes sense)

Netflix hates me and doesn't want me to do any work, given the fact that there are now seven seasons of L&O:SVU up on the watch-now feature. Gracious. I'm also eying the new Dr. Who series, since I recall someone liking it, but I don't know who...

Finished watching Reaching for the Stars for the second time... I really do love that drama. I think, try as I might, I'm going to end up watching Hana Kimi again (TW version). ....Or ISWAK. I just ordered Kim Sam Soon on DVD, so I'll watch that when I get it. 0:) I'm STILL waiting for the subtitles for the last two eps of The Rose... We've been promised them before the 15th. Which is... two more days. Watch me holding my breath. ...That might be like watching paint dry. And then I really will have an Ella marathon. Let's have an Ella icon to go with that. A super adorable Ella icon. I saw pics with Ella looking like she weighs five pounds. D: Skinny-mini-Ella is not quite... Ella. ...And Jiro palling around with Danson is going to have me off my axis here.

Oh, and Erin... Blacklight miming. :D I know, I know. Also, uploading the baum kuchen photos ASAP. ...I hope.

And that's about as much inane and varied as I can be tonight.
