My life, let me show you

cordelianne: (Star Trek The power of the eyebrows...)
My life has been seeming random and weird lately!

* I took my dad to see Star Trek (his first viewing, my third) and he loved it. Afterward, we were enjoying some tea when a guy came up and asked us for crack and told us he really needed some. I'm like "Really? You're asking us?" (well, I thought that in my head!). The fact that he asked us suggested how desperate he was!

* I'm getting tired of people saying that they're okay with other people being gay as long as it's not so "in your face" (*cough*Nigel on SYTYCD*cough*). So, for my work's Pride parade costumes, I suggested we have things written on t-shirts like "cocksucker" and "bull dyke", just to be really in your face. Everyone loves the idea so I'm pleased and now have to figure out what I want on my shirt.

* I'm also getting tired of people claiming that you can only be a nice person if you're from a small town. A friend and I helped a woman who'd fallen and hit her head (she fortunately seemed very okay so we just waited with her till her husband came, got her water and offered to help clean her scrapes), and it came up that from friend and I aren't originally from Toronto and the woman and her husband were all "Oh, so that's why you helped, because you're from a small place." Which was baffling to me because we've both lived in Toronto for 10+ years and helped her because we saw her fall/trip. I feel confident that if we weren't around other people would have helped.

* I've been bummed by the number of people who've totally flaked on [ profile] spring_with_xan. Some people have let us know which is great and we understand that things happen, but it's disheartening to have so many people who aren't getting in contact with us. *sigh*

* My cousin and I have realized that we went to summer camp with the guy charged in the creepy creepy kidnapping and murdering of a young girl (Tori Stafford), which has been big news up here in Canada. [Link to story.] It's all very creepy to think about. Randomly, this was the Christian camp that inspired my Spike/Xander AU Outside Pride.

In happier news....

* My brain continues to be eaten by the new Star Trek (which I am enjoying!). And it has me already part-way through another Kirk/McCoy story. I've also been reading a lot of Kirk/McCoy and other Trek slash and really should try and rec but am overwhelmed by all the great fic!

* I find Chris Pine (the new Kirk) incredibly compelling and I think this icon explains why. I possibly am spending way too much thinking about his eyes and eyebrows.

Also, I thought it would be fun to do that meme that's going around: Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

1. Spike/Xander (BtVS)
2. Kirk/McCoy (Star Trek XI)
3. Anne/Gilbert & Anne/Diana (Anne of Green Gables)
4. Luke/Lorelai (Gilmore Girls)
5. Giles/Xander (BtVS)
6. Logan/Weevil (Veronica Mars)
7. Faith/Dawn (BtVS)
8. Xander/Cordelia (BtVS)
9. Jack/Ianto (Torchwood)
10. Starbuck/Apollo (BSG)

heh, I didn't quite meet the "pick different fandoms" but since BtVS has always been a primary fandom of mine, I figure it's okay! :D
