How [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse wins internet!arguments:

‪‪me‬: YOU PICK
YOU PICK YOU PICK
I TAG YOU
applegeuse:‬ I CAN'T PICK
YOU CAN'T TAG ME
me‬: I CAN
applegeuse‬: I DODGE THAT BULLET
me‬: I'M OLDER
applegeuse‬: I'M BIGGER
me‬: SIZE DOESN'T MATTER ON THE INTERNET
BECAUSE YOU LIVE IN MY MACBOOK
applegeuse‬: OH YEAH? AGE DOESN'T MATTER EITHER. EVEN 14 YR OLD HAVE MACBOOKS.
me‬: if i can't pull the age card and you can't pull the size card
then we will have to rock/paper/scissors/lizard/spock for it
I CHOOSE LIZARD
applegeuse‬: if you choose lizard, i choose to pull your lizard tail off.
me‬: what. that is not an option. D:

(this story ends with me being ~self-sacrificial)

Also, she gave me questions for the Seven Questions meme that I totally forgot to do \o\

[Everyone and their monkey's uncle have already done the meme, but what the heck ever:

Comment to this post (and say, "SAM IS A FANCY LADY"), and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.]

1. If you could only eat one vegetable for the rest of your life, what would it be? Also, you can’t cook it. You have to eat it raw.

WHAT EVEN. I CHOOSE...CARROTS. (do tomatoes count as vegetables? because I'd choose tomatoes)

Q2-Q7 )

In other news, I want to get sorted at Pottermore but I don't want to go through all of the chapters. \o\~~~

In other HP-related news, I've been listening to this podcast* -- it is ridiculous and probably kind of self-indulgent on the author's part, but it's ever so entertaining and addictive!
*-at first I thought to myself, "This is an audio recording of a fanfiction! It is a podfic!" But! as I listened to more and more of it, I realized that it was not, in fact, podfic. I get the impression that the reader performs more similarly to an audiobook reader than a podfic reader. And the fanfic is a "fanfic" insofar as it's a written transformative work based off of JK Rowling's books, but it's more of a re-write of HP:PS with Harry being a clever snothead and pointing out all the flaws of the wizarding world and magic (it is funnier and more entertaining than I make it out to be, I swear!) than a typical fanfiction (there is, however, a brief mention of H/D mpreg~).

1. I liked exactly three things about 7x05: spoilers~ )

2. [livejournal.com profile] applegeuse and I have really profound conversations:
cut for general inappropriateness and inability to pluralize correctly )

3. I did want to post about Serious Business, but I spent the entire day reading Harry/Snape fics (it's [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault, because it's always [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate's fault when I spend an entire day reading fic X3) and I'm in a total fic-induced daze and nothing hurts.

I was trawling through cracked.com (instead of studying math because math ceased to be fun when the symbols outnumbered the numbers) and came across these two gems:

1. At some colleges, Quidditch is a real sport: College Quidditch. According to the founder, the Snitch is recreated by sticking a tennis ball into a sock and hanging it from the waistband of a cross-country runner. They...just...I can't even...*flails with fits of giggles*

2. Re-use your dog's hair! Sweaters and vests made from the hair shed off by pet dogs -- it's kind of ingenious...yet, at the same time, a teeny bit gross.
Speaking of which, I shed a lot -- back in the dorms, the vacuum cleaner broke because there were too many hairballs on my carpet. Wonder if I could crochet a scarf from my hair... >__O


On an unrelated note, I really want to buy this nifty little thing. Have any of you guys tried ebook readers? Are they really less straining on the eyes?

I'm a bit wary of ordering things from the States (or from anywhere outside of Canada, really) 'cause the last time I bought a set of DVDs from Ebay, I was slapped with a customs charge that was higher than the cost of the DVDs. :| I can't find anything online that tells me how custom fees are applied and how much extra to expect to pay. I used to buy manga from Ebay and various sellers on LJ and I was never charged taxes or customs fees, but I suspect it's because sellers labelled their packages as "gifts".

I've been watching random episodes of The Big Bang Theory on TV and then I decided to stream it online from the very beginning. It is filled with geeky humour and is vastly entertaining. I adore Sheldon, with his 187 IQ, his I-know-I'm-smarter-than-you attitude, and his complete ineptitude in understanding sarcasm and emotions in general, hee.

I'm watching English TV shows! Isn't that strange? Haha~ I've also been watching random episodes of Stargate Atlantis -- I haven't had the motivation to start from the very beginning...five seasons is four seasons too many. XD; Speaking of sci-fi shows (with main protagonists who are easy on the eyes ;)), I should catch up on Torchwood one of these days. The whole Tosh/Owen/Gwen love triangle turned me off three-quarters through the first season. Tosh was so much more interesting before she got all, "Owen ♥___♥" (whom I prefer with Gwen anyway). Ugh, one of these days, I want to find a show that doesn't have any romance -- just good plot and good characters (who are filled with with platonic love for each other) plz!

[livejournal.com profile] trolleys and I were talking about how we first friended each other and she mentioned an old old (2003!) Harry Potter picture I drew for an art-exchange for her. Last night, I found the original drawing in a tattered folder, and I thought that it might be a good opportunity to get accustomed to sketching and inking again (and lure my art muse back so I can draw that darned 4 Seasons fanart that I've been wanting to do for months). So...I remixed my own fanart, haha ;;;;
Harry/Draco sketch~~ )

I really really should practise more, so, doodle prompts, anyone? Fandom (anything in my interests goes, really), character(s), prompt -- I...can't guarantee quality though. X3;;

I went to the dentist yesterday and they didn't ask me what colour toothbrush I wanted. They used to ask! :( What, after you get a 2 as the first digit of your age, you don't get a pick anymore?? *indignant*

I finished HP&tDH last night, a week after everyone else. XD I was going to drag it out even longer, but after I got up to around chapter 25, I couldn't stop anymore. So I finished the rest of the book in one go and also finished a box of Kleenex in one go (though, granted, the Kleenex box was almost empty anyway. I just sped up the process a bit.) And now I feel that it's my duty, after being an HP fan for eight years (though the amount of fannish activity varied throughout the years), to at least throw out some Omg This Is The Last HP Book Ever comments (I was originally planning to, y'know, let the hype pass, but now that I've finished reading, I am positively itching to say something).

It's been a week! Are spoiler cuts still necessary? )

I fell out of the fandom about three years ago and never regained interest, not even with the release of HBP. But now, I have this huge craving for fanfics and fanart. X3 *attempts to resist*

And for those of you who have finished reading DH, you simply must read these Post-DH fics. They will pull at your heartstrings (unless you have no heart, in which case you may feel a slight pain where a heart should have been) and make you want to laugh and cry all at once. ♥

fishpatrol: (i'd rather sleep)
I'm feeling kind of anxiety-ridden because, like last year, we haven't found a place to live for next semester, but unlike last year, I won't be around in August to look for a place. 2-bedroom places, surprisingly (at least to me), seem to be more difficult to find than a 4-bedroom place. Then again, there are loads of 2-bedroom basements, but we'd rather see the sunlight on a regular bases, thanks.

I've found out that the most optimal time to listen to audiobooks is while drawing, rather than on the commute. I find that I get headache-y when I listen to audiobooks for too long on the bus. :S I'm currently working my way through Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest series (for a second time, technically speaking, since I've read them once a long time ago) -- I'm thinking of listening to Good Omens next since everyone raves about it and I wasn't able to really get into the book.

So anyway, fanart (may as well be prolific as possible before school starts again! :x I think I may have drawn more in one month than all of last year put together...) This is Hallwil (or Halvil in the licensed version) from Yamane Ayano's Crimson Spell manga. Fantasy + BL = awesome combination. ;) I highly recommend this series, but the English licensed version translated the main character's name into something...not so flattering. :\ I might upload all the scanlated chapters later.
wizard of the non-HP variety )

So has anyone caved and read the last chapter of Deathly Hallows? If you like iffy spoilers, go here. ;)
Personally, I have no idea if it's genuine or not. It looks genuine, but someone in the comments proved that it's quite easy to fake with Photoshop. Due my own aversions of certain ships, I sincerely hope it's not real (I'm very much a big fan of no-established-pairings-let's-let-the-fans-use-their-imaginations ending). Also, the last bit seems rather...anticlimatic all things considered.

And last but not least, since it's the 16th on your side of the world already, happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] jaig <3!
