1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?

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. :(

1) Out of sheer boredom yesterday, I read the first 45 pages of Silver Diamond volume 1. So far, so good. I hope it doesn't let me down. I'm in need of something new (plus this is listed as shounen-ai, which means JACK since KKM was also listed as shounen-ai).

2) Suffering Shinou, 55 whole days until Batman: Under the Hood is released. Also, Nightwing and Jason Todd is in it, where the Hell is Tim Drake? He was Robin when Jason returned (in fact, Jason beat him up in Titans Tower). And what about Superboy-Prime, whose epic timeline punch brought Jason back? And what about Clayface, whom imitated Jason as he looked on during the Hush arc?

It's been so long since I read the comic book version, though - and I haven't gone back and read it in order to enjoy the movie as is (cause I am going to throw a Wolfram hissy fit if this is done badly). Also, LMAO at Neil Patrick Harris voicing Nightwing and Jensen Ackles voicing Jason Todd. I predict Red Hood/Nightwing will prevail over Batman/Red Hood or Batman/Nightwing (I honestly don't mind either way).

3) The Last Failbender comes out next month, on both my bff and my aunt's b-day. Ew DNW whitewashed casting tripe.

4) Suitors still hates me, albeit a bit less. I have a few oneshots and drabbles planned, as well as two long ongoings that I'm going to completely write before posting. These will be my last big Wolfram/Yuuri works for awhile. It's still my OTP and always will be, and I'll write it if the inspiration strikes, but I'm going to focus on other Wolfram ships.

5) Summer re-watch list: Rose of Versailles, Lovely Complex, Batman TAS, Batman Beyond, Justice League/Justice League Unlimited.

6) Summer re-read list: Young Justice, Fables (plus catching up), Justice League of America/International, Bruce Wayne: Murderer/Wanted, Robin, Under the Red Hood, Power of Shazam.

I'll probably revise those two lists in a few days.

Happy 2010!

Happy New Years, everyone! I'm drunk right now, soooooooooooooooo you know how that goes. The inability to taste (and smell) has made it so that I could not taste the nastiness of alcohol (I don't care, wine is nasty and anyone who tells you otherwise is the biggest lying liar who ever lied). Thus, I drank far more than intended to of the bottle of wine I received for my birthday (okay, I drank the whole damn thing, by myself). Thank Shinou for Firefox spellcheck, cause half of this post was illegible.

Meme Tiem!

I haven't done one of these in awhile, so let's roll. (Quickie fandom list: Kyou Kara Maou; Batman; Detective Conan/Case Closed; Hana Yori Dango; Justice League; Captain Marvel/Shazam; DC Comics)

Give me a character and I will tell you:

+ OTP for them.
+ Runner-up pairing.
+ Honorable mention(s).
+ Crack pairing(s).
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't.

I've been sick all week with whothefuckknows (I don't have health insurance, so it's not like I can pop up into the doctor's office and find out). I even missed much of Thanksgiving (I did cook, but I did not eat anything until late that night and spent most of the day in bed).

On the plus side, it's a good thing I hit my NaNoWriMo goal last week, or I would have failed immensely. I only wrote like 3000 words this week, LOL.

Speaking of writing, Suitors does not like me very much right now. I'm being pulled into two different plot directions, both of which are interesting.

So, I finally got the chance to watch the anime "Cowboy Bebop". Don't worry - there are no major spoilers in this in case you haven't seen it.

First of all, it's not in a genre I prefer. In fact, the genres and tropes it falls under/exhibits are ones I usually actively avoid (Space, Destroyed Earth, etc.) - but since it's in the crime genre I dove right in. I mainly watched this out of desperation for something new to watch, when usually I would pass it by. Very rarely do I find something outside of my preferred genres that I like, and this show was a prime example of why I usually stick to those genres.

Overall, I didn't like it - but considering that it's not a genre I like, I'm really not that surprised. It really did nothing for me. It had its LOLtastical moments, but I felt underwhelmed by the storyline and the ending. I think had the Spike/Vicious animosity been addressed in all the episodes, i.e having each case connected to it, I might have liked it more. I do love the music, however.

It's funny, though. I took a peek at the fan fiction section, and Spike/Faye seems to be the most popular pairing. I saw more potential in Jet/Faye, personally.

I haven't done a meme in ages! Stolen from [ profile] bodyline:

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms:

1.) Wolfram/Yuuri (Kyou Kara Maou)
2.) Shinichi/Heiji (Detective Conan)
3.) Domyouji/Makino (Hana Yori Dango)
4.) Nightwing/Oracle a.k.a Dick/Barbara (Nightwing or Batman)
5.) Robin/Spoiler a.k.a Tim/Stephanie (Robin or Batman)
6.) Harry/Luna (Harry Potter)
7.) Andre/Oscar (Rose of Versailles)
8.) Hakuba/Kaito (Magic Kaito)
9.) Otani/Koizumi (Lovely Complex)
10.) Lunge/Tenma (Monster)

This is by no means the only pairings I ship in each fandom. They're the main pairings I ship in each fandom, though. Also, why is there no femmeslash couples in this list? Dammit, in honor of femmeslash I'm going to make a completely separate list entirely for it.

1.) Anissina/Gisela (Kyou Kara Maou)
2.) Ran/Sonoko (Detective Conan)
3.) Shigeru/Sakurako (Hana Yori Dango)
4.) Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn (Batman)
5.) Mary Marvel/Wonder Girl a.k.a Mary Batson/Cassie Sandsmark(Teen Titans/Captain Marvel/Shazam)
6.) Hermione/Luna (Harry Potter)
7.) Oscar/Rosalie (Rose of Versailles)
8.) Renee Montoya/Kate Kane a.k.a The Question/Batwoman (Detective Comics)
9.) Wonder Woman/Artemis (Wonder Woman)
10.) Eva/Nina (Monster)
