Finally got around to watching this movie. I forgot how long it was, but daaaaaaaaaaamn it seemed like it took forever to watch that.

However, I won't lie: I enjoyed it. Not because it was the best movie in the history of forever, but because it was the first time in a long time a movie has had me completely entranced, waiting to find out what was going to happen next.

The funny thing about it is the only reason I decided to watch it is because people keep referencing it, and I wanted to be "in" on the joke, lol. It was worth it, however.

Pros: Visually beautiful, interesting plot, excellent score.

Cons: Could have developed the characters a bit more/given them more backstory, reasons for doing/being what they do/how they came to be able to do it - but this isn't so distracting, though.

I didn't walk away from it shipping anything, but I am glad it didn't get bogged down with some shitty romance between main male/female character like I suspected it would from early on.

Pomegranate 7up is on sale again for the holidays here! I love this stuff! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

I am going to stock up this time, because it is so awesome. I bought three of them last night, I am totally going to buy about 20 of those damn things. I let one of them get ice cold in the freezer, I swear I am going to break out the wine glasses for this. LOL drinking 7up from a wine glass.

Alright, y'all, I need you guize to solve a girlfight between a blaeaboo (black weeaboo) and a tweeblaboo (tiny black weeaboo).

Which Hana Yori Dango insert song is superior?


This is serious business. It comes down to choice of movie from the Redbox tomorrow, and I do NOT want to see the damn Tooth Fairy for the fifth time, lol.

I've went back and re-edited Suitors a bit. Only a few minor changes, like Conrad to Conrart, correcting a few grammatical errors, and removing a subplot that was going nowhere and contradicted later chapters that's coming.

And, just so this post won't be a total waste, let's discuss food and allergies!

1) I finally mastered the art of fried chicken. This has been eluding me for quite some time, and I often gave up in frustration or simply dealt with frying chicken that was good, but not that tasty greatness that a lot of my relatives can do. The key (at least for me), was to season the flour (Lowery's seasoning salt + fresh ground pepper + McCormick's Garlic and Herb seasoning FTW) and not the chicken, put the flour in a bag, and coat the chicken that way, then remove the coated chicken and set it on a plate to let the flour "stick" to the chicken a bit. Plus, heating up the oil slowly on a medium heat helped in not having chicken that browned too quickly (as was one of my errors). I had golden brown, crispy fried deliciousness. I guess good food really does take time to master!

Also, I ended up turning some of what I fried into some yummy hot wings by quickly tossing (by quickly, I mean putting the fried chicken in a bowl, pouring a cup of sauce on them, and stirring just until they were coated) with a boiled homemade unsalted butter-hotsauce-hot chili oil concoction (this can be done with any wing sauce, however), arranging on one layer in a shallow baking pan, then putting in a 400 degree oven for ten-fifteen minutes. They came out crispy instead of soggy (like they were just fried - plus the crispy skin absorbed the sauce), and were excellent.

2) I have finally gotten over my aversion to fresh ginger! It used to be that even the smell of it was enough to make me retch (and eating it tasted like smelling Pine Sol), but I'm finally able to eat it without gagging. Unfortunately, I still cannot stand the smell or taste of cilantro. I walked past a bulk of it at a local mart, and almost vomited right there. DNW.

3) Somehow, I've become allergic to oranges again. I had been allergic to various citrus when I was a kid, but outgrew it. However, a whole host of food allergies popped up in my adulthood (various melons, banana, pineapple, mango, several nuts, etc.), right around the time after I gave birth (my pumpkin will be 8 later this month! ♥). A few days ago, I poured me a glass of orange juice, took one sip, and my tongue started swelling and my throat closed up. That means I'm down to apples as the only fruit that doesn't give me a reaction, and I'm not very fond of those. I still eat pineapple even though it makes my tongue swell a bit. The others have gotten so severe within the past year that I won't even chance them that much. :(

Today, the last lolz of December was posted in [ profile] capslock_kkm in the final December FML post. We hardly knew ye, FML Wednesday.

Come participate!

Also, I made chili in the slow cooker today, and two hours before it got done I lost my sense of smell and taste due to this cold. FML. :(

Taken from a Deadpool fic (which was sporked here):

I roll my rainforest-colored eyes.

I can't!

Also, after I post the rest of the Kinks drabbles, I'm going to go back and re-edit all my older fics. Tedious, but I was re-reading them the other day and cringing at my old mistakes (the blond did this, the blond did that, the fire mazoku this, the fire mazoku that + Holy italics, Batman!). I'm finalizing the second oneshot that goes to TAATS (which is the first fic I'm going to revamp). I'm also completely finished with the third oneshot (well, sometimes I go back and change things up at the last minute) - but the second one needs to go before that one. I'll probably post the next set of themed drabbles before either of those, however.

I still have 9 chapters of a Do. Not. Want. sequel sitting on my hard drive, as well as a crack M-preg and several oneshots. Eventually, I'll do something with them - even if that means cutting them up and using the parts in other stories.

I just read chapter 7 of 07-Ghosts, and my heart is broken. ;_;

Still, I can't wait for the anime in April! I think I'm going to stop reading there and watch the rest in animated form. It's nice that there's something coming up that can fill the void that Kyou Kara Maou has left. I'm thinking about going back and re-watching all of the KKM episodes once season 3 has been fully subbed.

Speaking of KKM, Murder at Blood Pledge Castle is coming along pretty well, I'm just working on the plot some more. The Wolfram's suitors fic (which has no title at the moment) is being worked on as well, I'm just polishing up the plot and trying to decide what the end pairing will be. I think once I finish those two long fics, as well as the oneshot sequels to TAATS and everything from the Wolfram project, I might take a break from this fandom and write for others. I don't know yet, however.

Also, let me give a big Happy Birthday to [ profile] chalp! Hope you have a good one!

Am I Seme or Uke?

Top or Bottom? )

Now if only more people would write more fan fiction reflecting this type of person...
