Kentucky, check. Cincinnati, not so much. Watching Philly v. Dallas. Don't care too much, so the decision is based on which uniform is uglier. i.e. go Dallas.

Writer's block again. Switched a scene from Dean's POV to Castiel's and it's going better. Someday going to write a fic from the POV of Castiel's trenchcoat.

If my compy cord doesn't stop falling out of my computer, I may be forced to kill someone.

3rd and 24, hah.

Speaking of Texas, yesterday I was reminded of that drink I told Jessica to suggest to her manager when she worked at Lonestar. I can't remember much about it, except it had blueberry flavor and was called the Texas Ass-blaster.

It's gotta stop snowing. I'm losing my mind.

I'm behind on my meme again, so I'm doing three days at once.

Day 14 → A non-fictional book

Alright, now if this means a book that's actually real, then I'm going to recommend The Three Musketeers because it's kickass and I loved it.

Day 15 → A fanfic

There are a huge number of great fics in the various fandoms I participate in, but I'm going to say After the End from the Harry Potter fandom because it was the first multi-chaptered fic I ever followed. I used to wait eagerly for each new installment and I remember how crushed I felt after the final chapter was posted just after Order of the Phoenix came out and there was a happy ending in the fic for characters no longer among the living in canon. Honestly, I don't remember much of the plot, but I just know I enjoyed it at the time and it was a big deal in my Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny obsession days.

Day 16 → A song that makes you cry (or nearly)

I nearly cried the first time I heard Punch Brothers' Blind Leaving the Blind, Movement One. I don't really know why. Youtube doesn't seem to have the whole thing, but this video is at least half of it.

Your result for The Fan Fiction Personality Test...

The Shipper

Slash, pairings and Playboy plot bunnies.

You are very likely female, and you very likely examine characters for their "slashability". Though you insist that your stories don't circle around love and sex between attractive characters, they do.

It is also likely familiar to you that at a certain point in your story, a character (or more) discovers that he (and rarely even she) is gay, and starts a relationship with another character.

Your fanfiction meets the taste of many, especially if your pairing happens to be between two attractive males that are straight in canon.

You probably wrote something about Harry Potter falling in love with Draco Malfoy, Legolas starting a secret romance with Aragorn or Obi Wan being a sex sklave of Han Solo. If not, you probably still consider to do it.

Take The Fan Fiction Personality Test at OkCupid

Man, what a hateful quiz. I would never insist my stories were anything other than an excuse to wax eloquent about characters falling in love. Ah, romance!

Also, change Han Solo to Qui-Gon Jinn and maybe we got something.

Earlier, I was frying something and I needed Jessica to hand me the tongs. Only I couldn't think of the word 'tongs'. So I made this little *clasp clasp* motion with my fingers to indicate what I wanted. And it went like this:

ME: Um, dude, will you hand me the...uh...the um...*clasp clasp*
HER: The Misha Collins?

I was oddly proud of her and somewhat confused because Jessica is nowhere near a Misha fan. She's not on twitter. She's probably never heard of [ profile] mishaland. Frankly, I think she's annoyed by Misha. Yet, this message of insanity has still managed to reach her. It's amazing.

Merry Christmas!

I don't want to wax eloquent, but since it's Day 12 → Whatever tickles your fancy and it's Christmas, I am going to post a little poem thing I read at church yesterday that I thought was really beautiful.

Light looked down and saw darkness )

:) I hope everyone is having a great day, regardless of how you spent it!

Speaking of things I read in church, I picked up a random piece of paper and the first bit of it said, "Now Gabriel came to Zechariah and..." I then shook myself, reminded myself to separate fandom and real life and went about my business.

Oh and I got a magazine subscription for Christmas! I've asked for one for the last three years, lol. Also some other really nifty stuff including s1 of Deep Space Nine (omg, I love that show so much!)

And now I'm attempting to write the next chapter of this fic AGAIN because I've lost a bunch of it TWICE now from computer glitches. I'm going to start saving after every sentence, I swear.

*twirls away*
cloudyjenn: (Rodney smile by velocitygrass)
Day 10 → A photo of you taken over ten years ago

I'm so cool. Everyone wants to be me. )

Coming to an LJ near you )
cloudyjenn: (Cas= Dr. Sexy  by awakencordy)
Alright, I have time to get back to my meme now!

Day 09 → A photo you took

Sorry if you got the ginarmo version of a moment ago. I fixed it.

In case you were wondering, it's my mother )

The Rest )

I just remembered! Today is my six month anniversary of not smoking! Thank you, sweet sweet Jesus because you know I couldn't have done this by myself with no cravings in SIX WHOLE MONTHS.

I should do something to celebrate. You know, if I ever finish writing this fic. Maybe watch some SPN on the actual TV instead of my computer where I can see their pretty faces better.

cloudyjenn: (Default)
The most amazing things are happening in the living room right now.

John started a fire and we are toasting marshmallows for s'mores! We are also watching the first Star Trek film with all its glorious unnecessarily long pauses while I work on finishing up the secret santa fic. So many good things, people.

Which is why its great that today's meme picture is...

Day 08 → A photo that makes you angry/sad

I could do something really serious as there is a lot of crap that qualifies in this world, but I'm going for something more frivolous to keep the angst in my journal to a minimum.

We got them back for this later )

More to come )

This meeting is adjourned.

Meme Day 7

Day 07 → A photo that makes you happy

Actually, you get two. :)

Ummmmmm )

Please explain. )

The Ghost of Meme Yet to Come )

More meme!

Day 06 → Whatever tickles your fancy

This really tickles my fancy. In fact, Jessica and I were cracking up over this last night, which just goes to show how dumb we are. I have this deep love for pretending my SPN characters are saying lines from other stuff completely. Don't ask why.

I'm dedicating this to her and to Kam and Sarah because I'm guessing we four will appreciate it the most. Although it does involve Dean/Castiel, so that's fun for many parties.

The Angel Raj and Christine Winchester )

Also, while doing this, I took the ugliest screencap of Dean ever.

Ugly Screencap )

I'm leaving off the list this time because this is already long enough. Top Chef finale tonight! I'm rooting for Bryan, but I would be ok with any of them winning. I like everyone left and that's never happened to me on a reality competition show. So yaye! (And it's nearly over because it took me the ENTIRE EPISODE to get these pictures uploaded urhglalsdfjal;skdfa;lskdjfaslkd)

Also, Kentucky plays Connecticut. J. Cal vs. J. Cal! TOO MANY OVERLAPPING INTERESTS.

Um, I'm off now Later!
cloudyjenn: (deanfixation by heirofinsanity)
Apparently LJ isn't sending out comment notifications? At least mine anyway. Dash you, LJ!

So I'm late with this meme, so I'm putting two days into one post. I'm sure you can all survive this change.

Day 04 → Your favorite book

I went round and round with this one. How do you pick one favorite book? Well, you can't obviously. I thought about reccing a random book I've loved, but then I got to thinking. Out of all the books I've read and loved, there is one that's inspired me to things others simply haven't. I took a whole course on this author's work. I spent endless hours obsessing over his work and its film adaptation, including traveling to meet other fans and people involved with the making of said film adaptation. I connected with some of my best friends over it. I even went to this author's hometown and cried at his grave over all the little signs of his fans and the way he touched their lives.

I'll always love these books, even if I live to be 111 )

Day 05 → Your favorite quote

This one needs no discussion. It's awesome is apparent.

Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
-Groucho Marx

The rest )

In other news, I read some fic today and I feel my squee recharged. I may go and write! Excitement!

Meme Day 3

cloudyjenn: (odo tribbles by curtana)
We're going to pretend that every day means every time period between when I wake up and when I fall asleep again.

Right, so Day Three!

Day 03 → Your favorite television program

Ah, television. My preferred medium for fandom and general squee. I have so many TV programs that I love. Pretty much anything with 'Star' in the title. Shows with time travel and space aliens and mythical creatures. Thrown in is the occasional 'reality-based' show like NCIS and M*A*S*H.

And I love them all so very much.

However, unlike movies, in this category there is a clear winner.

They won't let me smoke inside, but you can pee in Leo's closet )

Also, I got cute little snowflake thingeys from [ profile] devilyouwere, [ profile] obsidianglass, [ profile] kisa_hawkin and [ profile] madpsychogirl. Thank you guys!

I'm off to try and finish my second 'Holy crap I have writer's block and need to work on something else for a minute' fanfiction. It's coming along nicely.

Omg, Kentucky is playing North Carolina in five minutes.

*thrums with excitement*

ETA: Stop fouling, Bledsoe.

ETA2: HOLY FRIGGIN' CRAP, JOHN WALL, YOU ARE AMAZING. If UK basketball was SPN fandom, John Wall would be Dean/Castiel because he's just that awesome.

ETA3: Seriously. Maybe John Wall really is like Castiel. He doesn't walk because he flies. But dude, Patrick Patterson and Darius Miller are also made of condensed awesome.

ETA4: Whew. That was close, a nail-biter even. But a win's a win! *dances*

Another fun meme brought to you by rfreebern.

Erika, Leann, Sarah and Nathalie are mean to me! *cries* But Jessica gave me a shitton of gummy bats, so I feel better about life. But then again, Brad is giving me evil-flavored I guess this means that Kam, John and Jessica have to be my favorite people.

All this candy sounds pretty gross though.
cloudyjenn: (smiley qui by so-out-of-ideas)
I'm in Lexington now! Man, we had to get up quite early to get down here. It's worth it though because Punch Brothers tonight!

And I'm starving.

So, the [ profile] deancastiel Renegade Angels fic authors were revealed the other day. I can't imagine anyone was that surprised to discover I'd written the Kentucky fic considering how often I go on about this state. In case you were wondering, Dean et al. end up in Paducah because that's where I was born. Sure I only lived there for a few years, but I started there and so that's where they ended up. It's like my Lawrence, only we moved because my dad joined the navy rather than because he was searching for the thing that pinned my mom to their bedroom ceiling.

I can't get the phrase "In dying, he defeated death" outta my head. It was a bit of morning comfort for me, but now it's just rumbling around in my head like loose change, heh. See, this is what happens to me. I don't get music stuck in my head. Well, not only music. I get words stuck in there on loops.

I realize that most of my posts are entitled something about 'random'. I think I should just accept that I'm a random person and be done with it.

But yes, I think I might take a nap now. I'm going to try and write some more Soul Piece before the concert. This chapter is annoying because it's all a bunch of puzzle pieces that don't fit anywhere. At least I think it will be. Who knows, by the time I sit down to finish it, it might turn out to be the epic tale of Dean and Castiel looking for Dean's lost shoe or something.
cloudyjenn: (black and white boys by velocitygrass)
I'm posting these pictures for [ profile] onecheekyhobbit. Because best friends do things like post picture stories for each other that draw ridiculous connections between their favorite pairings.

Look, it's McKay/Sheppard...sorry, I mean Dean/Castiel! 5.04 spoilers )
cloudyjenn: (Castiel's socks by heirofinsanity)
Birthday cake time again!

As you all may or may not know, I get a fandom cake every year. This year, I actually made my own because I wanted a very special and silly picture on the front of it.

So, here it is!

A Very Supernatural Birthday )

Also, [ profile] deancastiel chat girls! I have my story half done. I'mma finish tomorrow after the guests leave, then it shall be yours!

Now, apparently, it's time for the first course of this ridiculously huge seafood meal...the Gumbo course....

Later folks!

cloudyjenn: (Oops Dean by nj86)
Alright, it's time for me to post a picture that approximately three or so of you will get.

No! Don't eat me, please! DEAN, HELP!!! )

For those of you not in the know, you can enjoy how Cassius manages to get into EVERY PICTURE EVER TAKEN IN MY HOUSE. He's like the Where's Waldo of the canine world.

Now, back to writing. I'm nearly done and oh so hopeful that I can get everything turned in within the next 12 hours. *fingers crossed*

I'm in the mood for a meme. I can't remember exactly how this one is worded, so I'm just going to improvise.

Comment here with a fandom and I will tell you three of my unpopular opinions associated with said fandoms.

I think most of you probably know my fandoms to a certain extant, but they are also listed in my profile.
