1. Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011?
I can think of a few. Glee (because of Kurt/Blaine storyline), How I Met Your Mother (because NPH is amazing in his role), QI (Stephen Fry is my god!) and few others I'm sure but right now can't remember.

2. Which TV shows did you let go of in 2011?
Well, because I don't live in UK or USA I normally watch TV shows a bit late, so plenty of shows that I have seen just a few episodes and then decided that it's not for me. But the one I did watch when it was broadcast was Torchwood, and ended up watching just two episodes. It just wasn't Torchwood as I knew it anymore.

3. Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2011?
Being Human. Oh, I have it already on my computer, but I just haven't found the time/enthusiasm to start it. Maybe someday... ;) Oh, and Fringe.

4. Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2012?
Community and maybe Downton Abbey as everyone's been talking about it.

5. Which TV show impressed you least in 2011?
Torchwood. I have already expressed my opinion about it, but to conclude: it just wasn't Torchwood anymore, it was just another American cop/sci-fi show with no characters that I care about. Well except Jack, but even he wasn't the Jack that I loved in Doctor Who and Torchwood seasons 1 and 2.

6. Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2012 unless things significantly improve?
Torchwood, if it even gets another season.

7. Which TV show impressed you the most in 2011?
How I Met Your Mother. I loved Friends when it first aired and have been ever since trying to find another show to carry on as Friends did. The actors are amazing and the writing is delightful.

8. Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?
Maybe Doctor Who, because I have been following it from the re-start (2005 if I remember correctly) and I'm absolutely hooked. Also, I'm going to watch HIMYM to the end, because the rumor has it that it won't have many more seasons left, so... I started watching it, I'm damn well going to finish it.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

1. Your main fandom(s) of the year:
The fandom I'm most active right now is Glee, but I still check Torchwood and Harry Potter fandoms, too, occasionally as I could never really part from them. Also HIMYM fandom, but mainly just lurking in that one.

2. Your favourite film this year:
King's Speech! Definitely. No question about it. It was a film filled with many excellent performances, actors were amazing, the script was brilliant, the costuming, the music, just everything.

3. Your favourite book this year:
I started Stephen Fry's Moab Is My Washpot and so far I'm loving it. I'm reading it very slow. Mainly when I'm visiting my parents and spending the night there, too, and need something to occupy my mind.

4. Your favourite TV show this year:
The Big Bang Theory, Glee, HIMYM, QI.

6. Your favourite LJ community this year:
[ profile] fanficrants. I can't really tell you why, maybe my masochistic streak is wider than I thought, I just do.

7. Your best new fandom discovery of the year:
I have to say Teefury. Damn those tee shirts should be a bit more expensive so I wouldn't spend my money on them. I've bought oh god, nine tee shirts from there this year. *hangs head in shame*

8. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year:
I can't say. I'm usually quite satisfied with everything. At least I can't think of anything right now.

9. Your TV/Movie boyfriends of the year:
Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Gareth David-Lloyd, John Barrowman, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Segel, Kunal Nayyar, Russel Tovey. Oh god, who else? Matt Smith. Can you spot a trend there??? *grin* I like men who are confident about themselves and their sexuality.

10. Your TV/Movie girlfriends of the year:
Alex Kingston and Emma Watson. They are both so beautiful! I really do have enormous crush on those two.

11. Your biggest squee moment of the year:
Tom Price replying and re-tweeting my tweets! You should have heard me! I'm sure that the neighbourhood dogs were absolute menace because of the high-pitched squee I made!

12. Your most missed old fandom:
Torchwood... :(

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope that 2012 will bring all the joy you need!

Happy holidays!!!

I have been kind of busy bee these past few weeks (graduating from uni and general Christmas madness) so this comes a bit late, but:

Thank you for the Christmas cards

jejo763: (Exterminate!)
Could you please stop using words like lame and retarded? I physically cringe everytime I see those words and backpedal the f**k out of that story. I really would like to read more stories, but I don't want to see ableist words in them.

Thank you!
jejo763: (Ride me!)
I've watched plenty of great tv today. First this Monday's How I Met Your Mother (7x09), then last week's The Big Bang Theory (5x08) and last night's episode of Glee (3x05). I don't know how these shows will manage to top those episodes, but I'll definitely stay tuned. So, squeeing commences...

Under LJ cut in case someone doesn't want to be spoiled )
jejo763: (L. Brooks)
Well, I tell you. I am at the finishing line with the uni right now. I can practically see it from here. My thesis that I have been working on for the past 4 or 5 months has been forwarded to appropriate people and it's on its way to be approved and graded. I have one seminar left still where I'm supposed to present all my findings regarding the topic of my thesis (Increasing Visibility in Digital Media) and one exam. The exam is on Wednesday and the seminar on Thursday, so next week is going to be a bit hectic. My goal is to graduate in December, but only if I pass the remaining exam (the subject is Product and Service Management), but it shouldn't be that difficult but quite easy. Or let's hope that it'll be easy, because the subject itself is almost piece of cake for me to understand, so we'll see.

Oh, and thank you [ profile] nursedarry and [ profile] neptuneschild1 for the itsy bitsy spiders. My profile looks ever so much prettier now! *hugs*

And now that my school is almost finished I may have more time on my hands and thus more time to be spent here, with you guys!

Oh, and isn't my newest icon just pretty? I love Louise Brooks! Her hairstyle has inspired mine many many times.

It's my birthday today. I'm dressed to the nines and just waiting for the time that my friend comes to pick me up. We're just going to hang out and maybe go to a restaurant or something, I'm not sure what he's got planned. I've been a bit under the weather this week so we're not going to hit the clubs or anything, just relaxing. I'm still feeling a little exhausted, because of the flu and I do not like that one bit. Plus, this is the third time I've been out with him, so we'll see how the evening progresses.





jejo763: (Frustrated Mr Bingley)
I admit. There was a time when I really didn't like eleventh Doctor. I still think some of the episodes in season 5 are rather weak and bland. But the same can be said about all of the seasons, not just season five.

But Matt Smith has grown on me. Very quickly. Extremely quickly with his funny face and gangly body and amazing skills in acting. I really enjoy watching Eleven nowadays, and that's all because of the amazing cast, because let's face it, Arthur Darvill isn't ugly either and Karen Gillan... *drool* And let's not forget Alex Kingston. I have a serious crush on her. On all of them.

And the pics I see every time I venture in to my Tumblr, pics like these:

Found somewhere in Tumblr

They don't hurt either.
jejo763: (Gerberas)
I know I've been rather quiet lately, but I blame Tumblr. It's too addicting!!!

But here you have an icon meme, because I can't resist some memes...


default oldest newest
saddest happiest angriest
cutest sexiest funniest
fave ship fave fandom fave animated
best quote best textless best stolen idea
use the most favorite

IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: I could, but I probably won’t
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Definitely, or rather reflect my moods
AND THE SECOND MOST: The Big Bang Theory. Oh Sheldon and your facial expressions…
ARE THEY ANY GOOD: Some of them are quite good.
ANIMATED ICONS ARE: Amusing, entertaining and delightful

Coding can be found here

Okay, some of these were really hard. It's difficult to choose my favourite animated or favourite icon or best quote or funniest. I would've chosen multiple if that were possible. *sigh* But that is life. I hate choosing, I'd rather be indecisive than decide on anything. I guess my star sign is true on that case. I'm Libra and I weigh in my decision too long... XD

And LJ, what's up with lj cut? I couldn't get it to work the way I would've wanted!

"On the 24th of February, 1815, the look-out at Notre-Dame de la Garde signalled the three-master, the Pharaon from Smyrna, Trieste, and Naples.

As usual, a pilot put off immediately, and rounding the Chateau d'If, got on board the vessel between Cape Morgion and Rion island.

Immediately, and according to custom, the ramparts of Fort Saint-Jean were covered with spectators; it is always an event at Marseilles for a ship to come into port, especially when this ship, like the Pharaon, has been built, rigged, and laden at the old Phocee docks, and belongs to an owner of the city. "

I'm not going to tell you what book it's from, I'll let you guess. But I'll tell you this much, it's a classic.

Must remember this:

Do not trust Joss Whedon or RTD. They only break your heart!

For those who want to know I have recently watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long blog. I cried.

Also I really like Neil Patrick Harris. He's one awesome actor! Okay, now back to working on my thesis.

My brother got engaged! I'm so so so happy for him and his fiancee! He sent me a text message about an hour ago to say:"Wanna be the first one to congratulate?" in which I of course replied congrats and then he asked me if I knew why and I GUESSED CORRECTLY AND I'M SO HAPPY! I was the first one to guess correctly even though I was the last one to receive a text message from them.

Did I mention I'm happy for them? I was the first one to guess correctly, because dear brother sent riddles to all of us. My parents (live separately) received this message each:"I asked and got an of course". Neither of them has yet answered correctly. My mum sent a "Huh?" message back, but bro is teasing her and will not tell her more. Let her figure it out on her own time. My father hasn't replied yet.

We (my bro and me) are now giggling and seeing which one can figure it out first. We are pretty sure mum has gone to our step father to ask what that message means and once again we're pretty sure that he has laughed at her face. She can be quite oblivious sometimes. Step father will most propably help mum at this matter and most likely will just see how long it takes her to figure things out, too. Bro's future sister-in-law got:" Mission accomplished" message, which bro admits is slightly tricky one, but they had talked about it previously so then again no. No correct reply for them yet, either.

They haven't set a date yet, because they can't decide whether to have the wedding in spring or autumn. But I'll get to help, so I'm happy!

I'm having this crazy craving for a HP fic. If I were a writer I'd write it, but alas I'm not, so... here it goes:

I was reading [ profile] fanficrants few days ago and the topic was once again HP. The rant in question had something to do with Harry and Voldemort and slightly dark!Harry (if I remember correctly) and I thought it would be absolutely hilarious if there was a crack fic where Voldemort didn't actually want to do those bad things that's been shown in canon, but was coerced to do them. I have this image of Voldie somehow being so clumsy that he accidentally murdered people and caused them harm even thought he absolutely did not want and in the end he had to just go with the flow, because people were so scared of him, while he really was just a big lug and hated to do all he did. Did I mention this would have to a crack fic?

Whew! So glad to get that off my chest. This idea has been bugging me for days now.

And if anyone of you lovely people on my flist actually know a fic like this, then I'd be more than happy and would send you endless e-cookies!

In other news, just finished watching Miracle Day and all I can say is (and I think I'll spoil no one when I say): Meh! It's some American television show with two characters I already know. It's not the Torchwood I loved, but we'll see. I'll give it another chance, it might even become interesting as the series progresses.
Oh and did Rhys change his last name to Cooper all of a sudden?????

Any one interested in buying (/or swapping) one or two teeshirts that I got from the last Grab Bag round on Teefury. Both are women's size L, tight fit, never used. Just got them today in fact.

If you're interested, PM me.

I love both shirts, but they just aren't the kinds I'd wear. I'd very dearly see them in new homes with owners who'll appreciate them.

ETA. Only the Clockwork Orange shirt is free atm as the owl one has been reserved.

Saw this meme on [personal profile] bethmccombs's journal and thought "Fun! Meme! Yay!"

You're now a Time Lord. The 41st picture in your folder is your companion. The 17th is your arch enemy.

Okay, I have multiple picture folders on my computer and thus had to pick one, so the folder titled "Men" won the battle. Just because. Well, if I'm a Time Lord I think I have a choice of choosing men as my companions and arch enemies... *harrumph*

Pictures once again below the cut )
