So. First post of the month, and ngl I have hardly been on LJ for the past couple weeks. Which means I truly, madly, deeply mean it now when I ask: ohaigaiz howzit what's up with you? :D
Here's what's been up with me~
Finally submitted my hs_merlin
art last night. Was a day late based on my timezone, which had been kind of a first for me since I'm usually speedy weedy but my pentablet died only last--November
, okay, I'd still been in mourning. And I left my mouse in Laguna and there was no way I would be colouring my piece using a bloody touchpad.
So I bought myself a new pentablet. A Wacom Bamboo, which is definitely progress from the basic Genius tablet aesires
gave me for Christmas five years ago. (I will love thee for-ever, though, Teban and AJ. You have lived so much longer than what had been expected of you and served me well.)
During my state of lament, though, however absent from fandom I seem to have been, I finally--FINALLY--managed to watch BBC's Sherlock, and. Oh. Ohhhh! My. God. Best. Thing. Ever. I love how, as wallyflower
puts it, "this series is all about SHERLOCK
" and doesn't bother with a crazed attempt to be a carbon copy of Holmes
. He's still Sherlock Holmes, greatest detective of all time, and I cherish all the elements that clearly remind me of book!Holmes but I love every new twist to his character in this series as well. Also, while I am now a Cumberbitch in every single way, every single day, DOCTOR JOHN IN MY PANTS PRZKTHXBAI.
Don't think I'm getting into fandom, though. Can't even properly read fic, no matter how much I love Sherlock/John.
Also watched the first episode of Starz Camelot, and, well. JCB certainly doesn't have Bradley's hair. Or Bradley's face. Not even the crookedness of his teeth can match the perfect imperfection of Bradley's. And it's going to take ages to get used to Joseph Fiennes being so--cray cray, yes--but way too seriousface Merlin. But it's certainly interesting and hella sexy AND OMG THAT FINAL SCENE. ;A; And Eva-Motherfucking-HBIC-Green, hot damn! I'll never have the same enthusiasm for this show as much I do BBC Merlin, but I'm game for watching it as it goes on anyway. At least I can still ship Arthur and Merlin.
I'm not even going to start with how much RL work I have on my hands. It's cool, it's good, though; finally a regular and my boss assured me that he's got my back even when I decide to leave the company, the sweetheart. Probably in a year, sir, once I've managed to produce enough proof of my awesomeness.
Lol finally, because idk I have to let it out like it's some bad gas in my big fat heart, I've given up on American Idol when Tyler Grady got cut right after his first performance on the big stage (I think I might be jinxing my Top 24 favourites all this time: Danny Noriega, Alex Wagner-Trugman even though I only like him because he's slashy with Cody Sheldon aka the guy he beat out during the final audition hurr, Tyler Grady and, just this week--and I've only really been watching just this week--Brett Loewenstern and Rachel Zevita) but I love that Steven Tyler is judging because we get to have people like that James Durbin kid around. (I love him, too, he's my official favourite even though I know my bias should be Thia Megia because, hey, Filipino Pride! I do support her, though, but James Durbin is too goddamn fucking adorable, okay? Shutting up now.)
Speaking of Thia Megia, between her and Maria Aragon and Charice, I am a little amazed at the recognition Filipinos are getting internationally. Maybe I should hop in and see if I can still get that rock star dream. Lmao not a chance. HEEEY HOOOOO CAN I HAVE A KIM TAE HEE x HORIKITA MAKI x KUROKI MEISA DOUBLE DECKER SANDWICH YO
, shh yeah so i'm really half lesbo. [/fails as a rapper too]
Went and bit that paid account trial thing, but I'm a bit wary of using the extra icon space because it's only going to be temporary and I have issues with letting go. Give me a couple hours, though, I'll prolly succumb soon enough. I should really just get a paid account already. >___>;;;
