So. There was a book on my desk two days ago; In Conquest Born - I felt like rereading it. It is no longer here. I have no fricking idea where it's gone.

I thought perhaps I'd knocked it off, but it's not on the floor. It didn't fall into my work bag. I didn't take it over to the sofa to curl up and read and just forget it. I didn't take it into the bedroom again and put it back on the shelf, or near the bed to read.

It's somehow disappeared into a black hole for books I never knew existed. WHERE IS MY BOOK?

I've been looking for two whole daaaaaaaaaaays!

Someone please divine the answer for me :'(

1. MY DRAMA RATINGS (for the most part done, but still kind of a WIP).

2. Am debating whether to move my icon posts onto DW - do I really need another DW journal? Can I rely on LJ to host those posts? Does any of it matter? I'm hardly followed for my iconing skills XD

3. In the process of browsing tumblr I came across one that encourages picspam challenges: Themed Party. So I was trying to think of ideas for picspams I could do for my Dorama DW. So I collected up all the challenges from there and from [livejournal.com profile] picspammy: Under the cut! )

As well as all the [livejournal.com profile] drama_hunt tags/themes I keep hold of for future picspamming purposes.

Input on this would be cool though - can anyone think of a challenge or theme I could picspam anime/drama-wise? Anything you'd like to see me do? :D My most favourites are The Legend, Story of a Man, and Coffee Prince (although I assume that's been picspammed more than anything else), Prince of Tennis, Peacemaker Kurogane, K-On!, but I would also enjoy going back over Wang Qiu Wang Zi, My Prince (although the video files were never great quality even before they were subbed), Gokusen, 49 Days... Most anything I've watched, really. Here is a comprehensive list of what I've watched/partially watched.

4. I removed a bunch of comms/people from my flist, but really it's only communities I no longer wish to follow, and people who weren't following me or hadn't updated for at least two years.

5. There is a DW community called Arashi Fashion. Life is complete.

Minorly regarding yuletide, but only because it's a yuletide fandom.

I have a grudge against The Princess and the Frog. I haven't seen it, I know little about it, I don't know if I ever will see it or want to. It's just that whenever I see the title - EVERY SINGLE TIME - before I finish reading it completely I get excited thinking it is going to say The Princess and The Goblin instead.

Woe ;)

I forget sometimes how quiet it can get on LJ at the weekends XD I've been logged into my fic journal since sometime last night and I've come back to the check my flist here and there's only about five new posts. At least I wasn't missing anything!

Except the US Open Final line-up post - I opened it hoping to see Nadal's name and then just gaped when I didn't see Federer! I'm utterly a Nadal girl and would've been rooting for him, but I do so love to see them play one another. I'll never forget Wimbledon 2008. And I think it really would've proven something should Nadal have gotten to face Federer and than beaten him on the hardcourt. I don't dislike Djokovic; I don't anything him XD I just want Rafa to complete his Slam collection with a US Open. VAMOS RAFA. I want this to be his time.

So, fic-journal, I spent hours and hours and hours and HOURS (I eventually went to bed at 2:30am with more to do upon waking again) re-titling the posts. Why the hell did I do the numbered thing on a fic journal anyway? Being pretentious? I mean even I didn't know what the post was from the title! And I put a new layout up so I'd have the tags list on my layout; for my ease of access when I want to find stuff. I've also posted and backdated a bunch of things that were strewn across other journals and communities in an attempt to get everything centralized. I'm happy; I just wish I didn't have such a huge Prince of Tennis fic masterlist in a way because it's getting unwieldy and too much to look at. Although I realise it doesn't seem so much because some of it is locked to only me or only me and Cyn! (We have little universes we play in that nobody else would be interested in XD). I have posted lots this year though, I know it if nobody else does ;D

I also worked out a week or so ago what to use my Dreamwidth journal for; I've posted up a list of (Asian) dramas, animes and movies I've seen and am using it for liveblogging. Wang Qiu Wang Zi Season Two currently. And my allegiance is firmly with Li Hai Da (Rikkai) because I adore them, and it's going to be difficult to watch the end! (It's been hard enough already! XD). I love liveblogging; all the ridiculous instant reactions and capslocking I do is insane, but fun :D

I'm also working on a fic at the moment which is going to be the longest one-shot I've ever managed to finish (and I'm damn confident at this point that I am going to finish it!). It's over 15K right now, and that's a lot for me. That's probably twice what I've ever managed before now. So I'm proud of myself ...Even if it is a hooker!au XD

Almost only two weeks til holiday too! Wow I'm chirpy today ;)

I like Google Reader; I keep up to date with the online comics I read without either forgetting for weeks and then reading 50 strips in a row, or checking obsessively every day because I forget which days they actually update in a week ;D And it's also useful for LJ feeds which I took off my flist because some update in waves and I get lost amongst all the posts. Google Reader also keeps them all under their own individual names so you can just go through one at a time (see: comic strips altogether rather than updates in between), and you can mark some to go back to and probably lots of other features I don't care to use.

I spent a couple of hours this morning on GoodReads adding childhood books. That was fun! And found Noey had an account. I only have Noey and Cyn friended there so if anyone else wants to, tell me if you have an account so I can stalk you XD

On a very related note, have a linkspam of things reccomended to me on Google Reader:

Honeymoon Suite: So you'd either be too creeped out by the spectators or too memerized to actually *enjoy* your honeymoon...

The way things were? I like them better just the way they are now. Mother Nature's gift to us!

Postcard-en: I have never called paper and plants adorable before but I am now.

Skull Spoons: I think with the teeth they're actually more like sporks XD

The Most Confusing bookshelf: Seriously, I've looked at every picture and I still can't work it out

World Coolest Treehouse? It reminds me of the Ewoks, personally...

I dreamt that an old neighbour and I were busting animals out of some weird zoo. That had a bridal shop in its shopping area. I stopped to look at pretty dresses. I can't explain; I don't know.

ALSO I AM SICK OF GETTING WOKEN BY PERIOD PAINS FIVE DAYS BEFORE IT IS DUE... This must be why I get so grouchy on Wednesdays actually. Being assaulted by dumb cramps.

I so don't want to go to work today. I didn't sleep much yesterday night, and the dream I had this morning technically, makes me feel like I haven't slept. BLAH.

Online dream dictionary; YOU FAIL.

I figured dreaming about being on a rollercoaster might have had a less LITERAL meaning than that. I can figure out for myself that my life is "full of ups and downs" at the moment for myself, THANK YOU.

Though, it says a lot that all I can remember are the down parts, right? :P


I am very tempted to write, sort of. But I must see how this plays out to the end first because it will be a total au if the most recent development is anything to go by. Unless they drag the past back up again but they don't seem to be doing that a whole lot :/


I think it says a lot about me that I'm watching these two shows at the same time; one based around rival gangs, drugs, yakuza, murder, sex and lots of other dark themes, and one about a male preschool teacher trying to fit into a women-oriented working world. With lots of cute kids and "OMG the bunny ran away what shall we do?!"


My parents are really pissing me off recently. I'm sick of them playing happy families one minute and being at each other's throats the next. That's why I stay hidden up in my room.
