(Take That banner by hxdlover)

So, am making this journal officially friends-only from now on ... most of my entries were f-locked anyway. Am doing this manually (ie. f-locking individual entries rather than setting the whole journal to friends-lock) Some not-too-personal, random, or fandom entries and such will still be public!

NOTE: This LJ was on hiatus for many moons, but now (Feb 2011) it's back in action due to finally having reliable Internet & a semblance of routine in my life. So if we share fandoms/interests, met on a comm, or just seem like we'd get along, comment & friend away, & I will check out your journal too & almost certainly friend back! =D

If you could go out to dinner with a character from a current TV show, who would you choose, and why?

At the moment, it would probably have to be Peter Burke from White Collar - except, in my universe, he's not married. Don't get me wrong, I love Elizabeth on the show! But this is my hypothetical dinner, dammit, so he is not married, for obvious reasons. It'd be Italian food, obviously! And Peter would not be wearing a suit - rather he'd be wearing one of those burgundy or dark blue sweaters he likes. Sigh.

And, I've obviously given wayyy too much thought to this ...! *looks sheepish*

If you had the power, would you permanently eliminate Valentine's Day?

Hmm. I wouldn't, because it wouldn't work, and then there'd be like an underground illegal market selling heart-shaped candy and Hallmark cards as if they were crack, and it would become a symbol of the resistance and my evil dominion would be overthrown, etc etc. Gotta think of these things!

Seriously though, I would wanna downsize Valentine's Day, especially the commercial aspects. Yes, am a bitter singleton, but honestly am happier being single today than I would if I was in a tentative starting relationship (as has coincided before). The pressure to be stereotypically "romantic" and give/receive gifts and be all lovey-dovey when you're not even sure of your own feelings ... not good.

However, if you're in an established relationship (I wouldn't know, sadly) it must be nice to have a day put aside for precisely that kind of stuff, now that you know it means something. And if you're single, after all, it gives us all something to bitch about when we meet up with our other single friends, before settling down to watch something totally unromantic and fun like a gruesome monster movie (seriously, try it, it's great)!

Therein ends my thought for the day! (yes, only one. If I have two thoughts on Valentine's Day, the second one will probably be "why am I sinnnngllle?" ... oh damn, there it is. XD)

Plan for the day: out to have coffee with a friend, before going to see Morning Glory at the cinema, then attempt to do the exercise bike super-quick before settling down to watch Being Human ep 4. =D

Am trying to get fitter, but the fact remains that other than the exercise bike (which has been my old frenemy these many years) I never seem to commit enough to other exercises. So the last couple days have been doing sit-ups with this contraption called an "Ab Rocket" which I bought online, one of those things that supports your back a little so you don't strain your neck. It does work pretty well, but I just have to remember to actually use the damn thing, since my concern is usually with cardio. Let's see if I can keep this up ...

Looking forward to Being Human tonight, BH ramblingsCollapse )

So anyway. Really enjoying Downton Abbey, saw ep 3 last night, loving the shenanigans and goings-on. Also saw Never Let Me Go (in time for the BAFTAs!) - will post thoughts later as now really have to go get ready! =) Hope you're all having a great weekend!

So ... Being Human Season 3 is going to totally tear my heart out, and then stake it, and then EAT IT. Arghhhh. I love this show and my OT3 (sorry Nina, I love you too but I love them more), and I really hope it doesn't end badly for good, that there will be redemption and love again in the end for all concerned. It's just cos it's such a bloody fantastically written series, with such great characters/actors (too great, since one of them's been poached by The Hobbit, grr) - want to see it end in style.

Anyway, let's try to enjoy it while it lasts, right? Especially us shippers, waiting longtime for M/A only for it probably to end in tears! Here's a lovely & well-timed video I found for this beautiful supernatural couple.

Found this ad on Facebook highly amusing today ...



YES! You too can go out with Jensen Ackles, for 5 mins' worth of surfing Facebook!
(To be fair, Dean Winchester probably IS that easy ... heh)

What were your five favorite series finales? This could be a TV series finale, the end of a series of books or a comics run, or the finish of any other serial media.

Spoilery!Collapse )
