Comment Must Be Made To Be Added


A lot of the entries are public, including fandom related stuff/fic/icons, however most of my personal entries are friends only. If you want to read my friends only entries, and I'm not making any promises about how interesting they'll be, please leave a comment that goes somewhere along the lines of how you found me and why you'd like to be friends. If we know each other from somewhere else please include this. If you don't look like a psycho stalker and we have common interests I'll friend you back. Thanks for your co-operation.

The Qld floods have completely shocked me. The accounting firm where I work has clients who live in the parts of northern NSW that are also flooded and that makes it very real to me. To all those on my flist who have been affected in some way my heart goes out to you and please know that you are not alone in this.

To show my support and to try and help out in the little way I can I have decided to offer something as part of the qldfloodauction. The two highest bidders will get one large item of fanart, ie wallpaper/banner, and 5 matching icons. Fandoms are NCIS, White Collar, Sherlock, SGA, and SG-1 or any others that you are able to supply your own high quality screencap/pic. For more details or to make a bid my thread is HERE.

I am completely and utterly in love with the BBC series Sherlock. Just discovered it and I am completely hooked (and so annoyed that there are only 3 episodes!). Love the stories, love the acting, love Benedict Cumberbatch, love the cinematography and the way the whole thing is put together. Have watched all three episodes (and then rewatched two of them) since Thursday night and am now wondering how to survive until next year! The British sure know how to make fantastic television but it is a shame that they make so few episodes.

...but it never happens. I'm still working which is great, at the moment it is fulltime as this is our busy season but I have asked to go to four days a week in a month or two, I hate not having any time to do anything because I'm so tired all the time. And while I love having money, I don't really the extra amount.

That being said, my sister and I are trying to save up enough money to go to New York next June which should be lots of fun. She also wants to go to LA but personally it doesn't appeal to me very much. For those of you who have been/live there please feel free to try and change my mind.

As for fandom, really loving White Collar. Also been reading SGA fic, lots of really good whump fic.

Got to go, waiting for my plane to go to Melbourne for the weekend and its just just arrived. :)

I've finally gotten around to watching the second half of season 7 for NCIS. I had stopped watching week by week because I was getting a little bored with the show and frustrated by the direction it was taking. But I have to say the break did some good and it made me realise how much I missed the show and that I do still love NCIS, just not as much as I once did. And I'm not sure whether the writing picked up or approaching it with fresh eyes helped but I did enjoy most of it.

Some random thoughts (spoilers):

-I loved the last scene of Obsession, so sad but I loved how comfortable Tony felt with Gibbs to admit that he wasn't ok. And the scene with Tony and Gibbs walking up to the house (the one where Gibbs mentions planting roses), lots of squee there too! But the whole episode did remind me of a copy of the movie Laura, which I had watched after Tony referenced it in An Eye For An Eye.

-A couple of nice Tony/Abby hugs. But overall a serious lack of Tony/Abby moments. :(

-They killed Macy! Another female agent killed. But I did like the fact that Tony mentions that it always seems to be female agents. And the way he rubbed his fingers over his badge, he's done that before (Grace Period I think) and it was nice to have some consistency with how he deals with the death of an agent.

-Think I'm just going to block the whole Hart/Bell/Mexico Gibbs thing. Didn't find it interesting at all. And for someone who doesn't believe in coincidences, he sure has a lot in his own life. But I am worried about what will happen to Jackson.

Burn Notice. I don't know how this show escaped my attention before now. I downloaded the 4 episodes that Michael Shanks is in because...well I don't think a explaination is needed there ;-) (and he was so great. He does slightly crazy so well). But I found my interest was sustained even in the scenes that he wasn't in. And it doesn't hurt that the main character is very hot (even if he's not my normal type). I think I'm going to have to add this show onto my viewing list and go back and watch the rest of what has aired.

Well I've done it. I've watched all ten seasons of SG-1 (and The Ark of Truth). In under a month. Not a bad accomplishment, although I doubt I'll tell anyone other than you guys as it is slightly sad that I had enough spare time to do it :-)

I am so in love with Daniel this show (enough to buy the first 4 seasons on DVD). The earlier season were certainly better but I didn't hate the last couple like I was expecting to from comments I had read.

My opinions on some of the later characters:
- Vala - I love her! I guess she's the sort of character that you either love or hate. I love the humour that she brings to the show and how she completely brings out the worst in Daniel. I love seeing that side of him. And I have been completely sold on Daniel/Vala. Their total wrongness for each other just seems right. :-)
- Cameron - He's no Jack but he is still lovable in his own right. Not too mention slightly hot. ;-)
- Jonas Quinn - I didn't hate him, which I had expected to hate Daniel's replacement, but I don't particularly like him either. He had the smarts but I found him to be a bit one-dimensional and he lacks the passion than Daniel has (which makes him so lovable).

I did dislike the whole Ori storyline. I much preferred the Goa'uld as the enemy. On a side note though it did get me interested in the King Arthur myth, and I've borrowed a few books to research further into the Arthur/Merlin story.

My favourite episode has to be Legacy (if judging by the number of times I've rewatched it already). I know that the medical stuff is all wrong and that there are some gaping plot holes and Jack should have been more comforting but I don't really care. The sight of Daniel in a padded cell for some reason appeals to that sick side of me that loves to see my favourite character hurting. :-) To me it's like the equivalent of SWAK.

Anyway, now hopefully that I've finished watching I can get on with my life and the addiction will lessen a little. I'm sorry for ignoring you all for the last couple of weeks. Daniel made me do it. ;-)

I do plan to eventally watch SGA and SGU but I think I am going to wait for a few weeks before I dive into another show. Besides all the Daniel!fic will keep me occupied for a while. :-)

I'm completely hooked on SG-1. I've watched up to 3x16 Urgo. Thank goodness for local libraries that have almost the whole series in their DVD section and let you borrow 5 at a time. I've been suffering withdrawal the last couple of days because the library wasn't open and I won't be abe to get there until later today to get the next few DVDs. Thank goodness for fanfic!

I am officially a major Daniel fan. There's just something about him. And the Whump! Gotta love a show that has so much whump of your favourite character as canon ;-) My favourite episode so far would be Legacy. Or Need. Or really any Daniel-centric episode. ;-)

I also love Jack, although not to the same extent as Daniel. But he is still great. Teal'c is interesting too. I'm interested to see the development of his character as Earth customs influence him more (I'm assuming they do?). Still don't love Sam. There is something about her that annoys me. I was thinking about it last night and I think one of the main reasons is that she seems to have in depth knowledge about too many things. It doesn't seem realistic. At least with Daniel his extensive knowledge is all in a similar area and its realistic for him to have started learning about it at an early age. Sam though wouldn't have started studying until upper high school at the earliest and from what I know of the sciences, specialisation tends be fairly narrow. Plus her trait of wanting to act first, think later makes me want to strangle her sometimes.

As for shipping, at the moment I'm going to stick with gen. Nothing really leaps out at me. Although I have enjoyed reading the Jack/Daniel dynamic in the day and a half I've spent reading fanfic but its mostly been in a gen way.

Oh, and I've been completely ignoring LJ and my inbox so sorry if I've missed anything important. I'll try and catch up later today. That's if I can drag myself away from SG-1 for a couple hours though so no guarantees. :D

SG-1  
So I borrowed the first disc of season 1 of Stargate SG-1. Bad idea. I can see myself becoming obsessed with it. I've only watched the first ep and I'm already hooked. I've never been a sci-fi fan but after loving Star Trek early this year I've become interested in it. I was only going to watch SG-1 so that I would have an idea of the characters because it is often referenced by NCIS fans. But now I think I'm going to end up watching the whole series. To those Stargate fans only my flist any fic recs? Nothing with spoilers please.

Rove announced that tonight was his finally ever episode. Very sad. It's a fantasic show and I'm really going to miss watching it. But I wish him all the best for the future and hopefully he'll be back on TV again soon.

(for non-Aussies, Rove is our version of Larry King except he is way younger and much more cute. He was one of the people who interviewed MW when he was in Australia a couple of years ago)

I saw the Michael Jackson movie "This Is It today. I'm not a Jackson fan so I wasn't going to see it, plus I think it's just a scheme to cash in on his death, but a friend had a spare ticket so I went simple to get out of the house. I was pleasantly surprised by it and wasn't bored at all. Growing up, by the time I was old enough to know who Jackson was, he had already become the "Freak show" that the last few years of his life were but this movie really humanised him for me and I can now see why he is called the "King of Pop" even if I don't enjoy his music.

And speaking of movies, I watched Schindler's List (1993) for the first time last night. I was blown away. What a powerful movie. While I'm not a Jew, I am part of a religion that was also targeted and put into the concentration camps by the Nazis so it's always been more than a long ago historical event for me. Plus I really enjoy learning about history. But even with that connection, my feelings towards what happened have always been very academic. I know millions were killed but it is very easy to a say a figure and not truly understand the significance of it. But that changed last night. The movie showed in very graphic detail exactly what they went through. And it really hit home the suffering and the sheer amount of bloodshed that went on. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. It has been a long time since a movie has made such an impression. I recommend anyone who hasn't seen it, to watch it (although there is graphic on screen violence).

(I should have an icon post up soon, just as soon as I find some time :-)

Our internet was slowed to dial up so I've only just finished watching NCIS 7x02. My ThoughtsCollapse )

Finally watched NCIS LA. I'll be watching it as it airs on Australian TV (at least until they program it against one of my must watch shows). My ThoughtsCollapse )

And to all those who are in charge of hiring new people, how on earth am I supposed to get experience if you won't hire me?! Every job I've found requires at least 2 years experience. Where exactly am I supposed to go to get this experience? It's frustrating!
