Haven't done one in a while, and this looked fun:

Taken from lingers

1. Pick up to 10 OTPs.
2. Describe them in less than 15 words.
3. Have your f-list guess the OTP.

1. He loved her enough to reunite her with the man she loved (his best friend). Yasu/Nana (NANA)
2. He made 2005 a great year for her.Doctor/Rose (Doctor Who)
3. Childhood friends, she abandoned everything to help him escape.
4. He fell in love with her against his will, reason, and even against his character. Darcy/Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice)
5. The alien warrior woman and the marine-turned-intergalactic peacekeeper.
6. He follows her lead.
7. The barmaid and her knight vampire in shining armor pink lycra. Eric/Sookie (True Blood)
8. He does all the things that she likes!
9. A lively "father" and a harried "daughter". Tamaki/Haruhi (Ouran)
10. Their love transcended brattiness, several curses, pink hair, and slime.

Some of those should be crazy easy, lol. I'm pretty sure at least one is way too obscure, though. XD

Wow. I just noticed that I didn't use my reading icon for the last book post I did. WHAT THE HELL, SELF, WHY MAKE IT IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO USE IT? /random

Anyway, I finally finished the three Mercy Thompson books I got from the library thanks to a read-a-thon after work last night. Yeah...it didn't end on a high note.

Blood Bound - holy shit, did Mercy just do something?Collapse )

TBH, I found the most interesting development of the book was with Ben's character, who, over the course of BB and IK, has become oddly charming. Or at least, you know, something of a complex character. Weird how of all the characters in this series, Ben has probably had the most development over the last three books.

I've also become rather fond of Honey.

And then there's Iron Kissed. Offensive from the get-go.

Iron Kissed - what happens when women do shitCollapse )

So yeah, bad taste.

So I actually finished two whole books recently (it's been a "down" period for readage lately), Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Moon Called. Both left me with mixed feelings~

Percy Jackson, the children's book. seriously.Collapse )

Makes me miss the Harry Potter days of yore, before they traded in Quidditch for Emo and everything went all to shit.

Then there was the book for which I am somewhere in the actual target audience...

Mercy Thompson, not quite allowed to be badassCollapse )

LOL long rant. Guess we'll see how Blood Bound goes.

- I'm thirsty

- We have no water/milk/soda and the tap water is cloudy and undrinkable

- I got paid today but my card's network is down and thus my money is inaccessible

- (so I can't go buy anything to drink)

- Before I was thirsty, I made the mistake of eating sunflower seeds

- (I am stupid and unable to foresee simple consequences of my actions)

- (And also really thirsty)

Long time no post~ Randomly posting because I *proud* actually cooked today. Me and my roommate made a batch each of chicken cous cous with zuccini and tomatos, and it actually turned out pretty good. It was definitely edible. Would have been better without the cous cous, or with less of it, but still~! We don't really cook at home, and what we do is usually boxed and/or microwaveable, so it was nice to have something that was 'home-cooked' and 'healthy'. And yummy.

Yay us.

Reply to this meme by yelling "i want a slice of pie!", and I will give you five words that remind me of you.
Then post them in your journal and explain what they mean to you.
Keep in mind that if I don't know you that well, your words might end up kind of odd or weird.

lingers's words for me

AIR, Doctor/Rose, Eyes on Me (Angela Aki), NANA, Maaya SakamotoCollapse )

I'm alive! Yay. Recently acquired an Xbox 360 from my cousin, and signed up for Gamefly, so I've been going on a gaming binge. Finished the new Silent Hill: Shattered Memories for the Wii, as well as Mirror's Edge, for the 360.

cut for SH rambling~Collapse )

Mirror's EdgeCollapse )

Finally, I would just like to mention for a certain person (who is busy and probably won't read this anyway xD) and for my own personal satisfaction, that I picked up again and am almost done with Kingdom Hearts 2~! Yay, this is me, last to the party as usual! Although, playing it again, after all these years and after playing many other, better games...Kingdom Hearts has lost some of it's shiny appeal to me. Still, it's engaging enough to finish and possibly continue with the series. Especially if it includes more adorable lion avatars. I'm all over that shit.

Anyway, I suspect that it will continue to take up my time the next few days, plus I've got a backlog game list that I'm trying to tackle, so later, internet~!

Also, I need a gaming icon D:

EDIT: Oh shit, Spoony just posted 3 new videos. Goodbye, next three hours of my life~

Just finished the End of Time, David's last episode. Sigh. Despite being quite possibly THE STUPIDEST episode of the new Doctor Who series (and that's saying something. I mean, I love it, but the stories in Doctor Who are by and large pretty damn stupid), the way they dealt with Ten leaving and the whole 'end of an era' thing really bummed me out. And yes, I cried. But ONLY when he went to see Rose. Because after everything, The Doctor/Rose still gets me. Even more than David leaving, I think the fact that the Doctor/Rose is now totally over and done with is what put me off. I wish I had season 2 dvds to go crying to, lol. Everything post-Fear Her that involved Rose was really depressing.

Anyway, stupid episode was stupid, no denying that. There were more plot holes than plot, and did I mention stupid? That had to be the worst 'take over the world' plan I've ever seen. And that includes world's worst plan #1, Twin Clones of Hitler. WE HAVE A NEW CHAMPION EVERYONE. John Simm was fail actor. I mean, his part was badly written, but not that bad. He chewed the scenery and then quite literally spat it back out. With EVERY LINE.

Anyway (again), dumb as it was, the episode was saved merely by the fact that it was Tennant's last, and he made the most of it, didn't he? Even he hammed it up more than usual, especially with his twelve 'death' scenes. Still, when he said 'I don't want to go', you believed it x3 it's almost like they're pushing him out rahter than his voluntarily leaving. Sigh.

We'll see how the new guy fares (although I'm already against the bow tie), but like Ecclestone before him, I'll really miss Tennant.

day 22 → a websiteCollapse )
day 23 → a YouTube video

For the LULZ I mean, seriously? Look at those effects. That's the best they can do? Talk about B-budget. You'd think they'd put some effort into this shit, since it's a pretty high-profile remake, but damn. It looks terrible. ALMOST AS BELIEVABLE AS THE ORIGINAL.

days 24 - 25Collapse )
