My computer died. Fuck. I don't want to spend the day setting up a new one, I had other plans. Plus, I don't want to spend the money on a new one when this one is not that old and I am so pissed off right now I could scream.

Things that make me sad:

The terrorist acts in Paris :( My sympathies to everyone there, especially the family and friends of the hostages.

Another AirAsia plane lost at sea :(

The Steelers losing in the first round of the playoffs....

Seeing birthday notices for lj friends who haven't been around in years....

Listening to the last ep of Cabin Pressure (even tho it's hilarious!!)

Things that make me happy:

THEY'RE FILMING SHERLOCK AND IT'S A THROWBACK EPISODE!!

Benedict is going to be a daddy! :)

All of the nominations for Benedict and The Imitation Game!

The Pens are in first place \o/ and are as always, a contender for the Cup!

My new kitty (even tho he bites, hard!)

It's Saturday :D

And one minor irritant that really is terrible of me, but!

I'm sure Eddie Redmayne is great in The Theory of Everything, but it burns me up that he's being nominated for and may win awards for a role that Benedict played to perfection in Hawking, years ago. I know, that's stupid of me, lol

SO, anything you all want to get off your chests? LOL

Stuff...

Getting ready for a Super Bowl party at my house later today. Go Broncos! (Sorry [livejournal.com profile] mercury973). I do love
MVPeyton :)

Work is going better, but I'm still looking for a new job. The one I interviewed for last week was misleading in the job description and hours, so I am not taking it :(

However, TPTB at my job think I'm doing really well (like, a bunch of them and people at the big company I'm not allowed to tell people I work for listened to one of my calls and thought it was almost perfect, and some said it was perfect) even tho I don't feel like I know what I'm doing a lot of the time. I hate the micromanaging all the freaking time!!

I'd better get a daylight shift in March if I'm still there at that time..... :/

I'm not happy that I'm going to miss the Olympics every night :/ although I think we should boycott them anyway because of the "no gays in Russia" thing.

It's becoming harder to keep up with all the TV shows I watch, so I've eliminated The Tomorrow People (nothing ever happens to move this story along!) and Elementary (this time I mean it, last week's episode was horrible). And Arrow is next if there is not more JB and Manu Bennett soon!

At least some of the shows, like American Horror Story and Sleepy Hollow, have ended for the season, lol

But now Suits, Defiance, Lost Girl, etc are all coming back to take their places! I can't keep up :D

Of the new shows that have come on this season, I'd have to say that I love Sleepy Hollow, The Blacklist (James Spader can do no wrong), HELIX (I LOVE THIS SHOW), and REIGN (please watch this show so it doesn't get cancelled!!).

I wouldn't mind too much if Agents of Shield, Dracula, and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland were not renewed, although I do enjoy them to a degree.

My other favorites are in no danger of cancellation :)

What are you all watching and loving?
ailurophile6: (do not want)
I've given this show 4 episodes, and I'm done.

This show is boring and so stupid I can't take any more, lol.

Spoiler )

Maybe I'll read the book, it's bound to be much better than this dreck.

how are you so adorable?!

In other news, my Windows 7 computer died Sunday, so I upgraded. This new computer has 1TB of memory, omg and a wide screen monitor that takes some getting used to.

But, Windows 8, how much do I HATE you? Let me count the ways!

This new OS sucks. There is no start/restart button for one thing. There is no clock visible at all times, which is imperative for me!

The minimize feature is gone. I cannot close my browser without using task manager, FFS.

I could go on and on.

THESE ARE NOT IMPROVEMENTS, MS!!

Dear all,

LiveJournal will be unavailable for up to three hours starting at the following times, Wednesday, October 5. During this time, LJ might be unreachable, slow, or experience issues loading. This will affect all services, including LJ Talk & Scrapbook.

22:30 GMT

The purpose of this downtime is to install new core routers, upgrade other network devices, and add more Internet uplinks to our primary datacenter. I expect the real downtime to be much shorter then stated above, but unforeseen problems could require up to three hours.

Thanks,
Andreas


Shorter THAN, Andreas.

Anyway, I am not confident that it will take 3 hours or less. LOL. When do their upgrades ever go as planned?!

See you all in a few days? LOL

I really need an icon that says "you say I'm a bitch like it's a bad thing" and one for all my whining posts LOL

Today's whine:

I finally get some time to read big bang stories, and they either go from the extreme of having so little McShep in them they might was well be gen, or so sappy and filled with totally OOC romance and fluff (and way too many unnecessary sex scenes) that I get nauseous.

And let's not even get into stories with John and Rodney in AU settings/occupations that just don't work.

I know I should not complain, these writers are putting all their work into entertaining us with no renumeration, and all that....which is why I hate being so picky, but gee I'd really like just one nice long story that's well balanced and not OOC.

The good news is that I've still got the vast majority of big bang and sga santa stories left to read....

;)
ailurophile6: (mcshep christmas)
without a rant?! LOL

I'm so irritated by this, I have to vent about it, regardless of the date!

scroll on by to skip my fan fic rant! )

I feel better now. LOL.

YMMV...

but....

pain play? D/s?

a pre slash story set 20 years after the series' end? they'd be in their sixties!

no, thanks.

I'll go back to the Merlin/SGA crossover, even though for some reason it's not as interesting as I thought it would be...

but they drive me nuts!

My mom just called and asked me to come to their house after work, because they got a new TV and cable box today, and they cannot figure out how to use the remote. JFC. Neither one of them is stupid, I can't believe they cannot figure it out.

Work has been pretty busy, surprisingly. December is usually slow.

My cousin's funeral was yesterday. It sucked (having to bury my cousin, I mean; the actual funeral and wake were quite nice, and well attended). Enough about that.

I had a Christmas party at my house on Saturday for my Star Trek club, and M1 and M2 came up from Maryland \o/ and stayed overnight. A great time was had by all!

I've known these people for 15 years or so; here are the gifts I received (we just do small stuff and a grab bag):

A santa decoration (I don't decorate for any holidays)

A container of orange tea (I am a coffee drinker, they've never seen me drink tea, because I don't)

A bag of Butterfingers (chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite candy, or peanut M&Ms; they've seen me enjoy these many times)

2!! sets of those cheese spreader knives (I have never served them cheese and crackers on any occasion)

THIS IS WHY I HATE GETTING GIFTS. If you're not going to put any thought or effort into it, don't give me anything. I make sure my gifts are appropriate and something that my friends will actually like or use.

The Santa went (yet again) to my sister-in-law, the tea went home with M1, the Butterfingers went to my brother, and one set of cheese knives went to my sister. I stuck the other one in a drawer, to be sold at a future yard sale.

The only good gift was my grab bag gift, because my friend J pulled me aside and told me to pick his gift, lol.

It was Star Trek Scene It! which I had planned to buy for myself, so \o/ for J!!

:)

What are some bad gifts you all have gotten?! I'm not alone in getting inappropriate gifts, am I? LOL

Ok, live journal, you can stop with the random old comments popping up in my inbox any time now.

Jeesh.

It's really annoying, lol
