cordelianne: (S/X XanderBabble Smackdown)
My stomach's been upset for days and I feel like crap thanks to not being able to sleep last night because I felt nauseous. Oh yeah, fun times. So since I'm in bed, I figured I would belatedly jump on the icon meme train and do it.

Go here for my answers )

I hope all of your days are going better than mine!


cordelianne: (TW Jack/Ianto the Kiss!)
I'm supposed to be writing up an employee review and preparing to conduct an interview, but I think I'm starting to burn out on those tasks so I figured some distraction might be in order.

I think it's time to jump on the meme train and do the Unpopular Opinions Meme.

Ask me my unpopular fannish opinion! Fandoms I am in or have been in, plus shows that I loyally watch: BtVS, Angel, Friday Night Lights, Torchwood (I've only seen up to 2.10), new Doctor Who (only up to mid-season 2), The Office (US), 30 Rock, How I Met Your Mother, Aliens in America, House, Bones, Reaper, Grey's Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Battlestar Galactica, Dancing with the Stars, Firefly, My So-Called Life, Gilmore Girls, Everwood and Arrested Development. Also you can ask me about fandom in general. :D

And this seemed like a good opportunity to use one of my new Torchwood icons!


cordelianne: (Andrew "I loved it so much ...")
Today is the birthday of the wonderful [ profile] vampirefever. I wish you much joy and delights on this very special day!! *throws confetti* I hope there is much more F1 slash in your future! *hugs*

I got tagged by [ profile] savoytruffle and [ profile] tkp to list my top five favourite fics. I’m excited to do this even though I always have a difficult time narrowing things down and from what people have said I know this will be especially tricky.

Post a list of your top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

My Favourite Fic )

It appears that everyone’s been tagged in this meme, so I’ll tag whoever wants to play. *g*
cordelianne: (Angel Dork)
Okay, so I'm totally behind on reading my f-list, I want to be reading more of the Gud Summries Ficathon entries (my contribution is Chicken Dancing) AND I am supposed to be working ... but I cannot resist a meme (which I grabbed from [ profile] kimberly_a) all about the tv shows that I've watched!! The thing to keep in mind is that I didn't watch a lot of tv as a kid (we didn't have a colour tv or cable until I was 10 years old).

• Bold all of the following TV shows which you've ever seen 3 or more episodes of in your lifetime.
• Bold and italicize a show if you're positive you've seen every episode of it.
• If you want, add up to 3 additional shows (keep the list in alphabetical order).

Click here to discover the sheer volume of television shows I've watched! )


Yes, I am doing the meme too!

Because I tend to have one moment of self-control and then totally cave in like 2 minutes, I commented on [ profile] entrenous88, [ profile] electricalgwen, [ profile] crazydiamondsue and [ profile] globalfruitbat's meme posts so ....

Respond with your LJ name and:

1. I’ll respond with something random about you.
2. I’ll challenge you to try something.
3. I’ll pick a color that I associate with you.
4. I’ll tell you something I like about you.
5. I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. (So I'm copying [ profile] crazydiamondsue and am changing this one as well.) I’ll tell you which TV show/movie you remind me of.
7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wanted to ask you.
8. If I do this for you, you can post it on your LJ, or not (I will not hold you to it! *g*).

I hope you are all having a good Monday!! *sends much love to you all*


cordelianne: (Vmars Dick Is...)
I have random stuff today:

  • Because I cannot resist something that promotes love and fuzzy feelings, I put my name down at [ profile] itsabigrock's Anonymous Love Meme. Go, put your name down and share the love. It's already at 3 pages!!

  • One of my friends sent me this amusing review of The Da Vinci Code in the New York Times A 'Da Vinci Code' That Takes Longer to Watch Than Read. Another friend informed me that the movie was booed at Cannes!! Booed!! After telling me that, she asked if I still wanted to see the movie (fyi: I have not read the book). And I'm now actually more interesting because I love bad movies!!

  • I must direct your attention to my new icon by [ profile] _jems_. It's a beautiful statement about how the many t-shirts of Veronica Mars' Dick Casablancas reflect his personality. *snicker* For those of you who don't know: Dick is, well, a dick. But a really entertaining and funny one to watch.

  • Tonight my two BFFs and I will be having a birthday celebration for one friend (we're all 29 this year). I anticipate much talking, laughing and fun. I met the birthday girl ten years ago at scholarship interviews for the University of Toronto. She remembered me as the girl with the great laugh and curly hair, and I remembered her as the girl who noticed that blood gets splattered on the camera in Braveheart (that kind of attention to detail impresses me). We ended up in the same residence house, where we met the other girl (who I immediately noticed was not dressed like all the other girls). Those two became friends first, and I decided that they would become my friends since they actually seemed fun. Sure there's been a couple of rocky times, but our friendship has sustained bad boyfriends, bad girlfriends, school stuggles, family issues, being roommates, and two of us becoming big-time BtVS/AtS fangirls.

    He's a Viking in the sack. (btvs 4:20)

    cordelianne: (Veronica/Logan flashback making out)
    I've been tagged by [ profile] electricalgwen in the Ten Fictional Characters I Would Have Hot Steamy Sex With meme. I'm copying her and dropping the "Top Ten" aspect because it was REALLY hard for me to narrow down my list. Apparently I'm a slut about fictional characters.

    Who I'd Have Sex With )

    And I'm also doing [ profile] vampirefever's Ten Fictional Characters I Wouldn't Sleep With Even If You Paid Me meme. And I've chosen characters who other people think are attractive, and I may even think are attractive, but I wouldn't want to sleep with. So I didn't pick people I think are icky.

    Who I Wouldn't Have Sex With )

    Yay!! I did it! *dances*

    I am still working - slowly - on the drabbles, so more will be coming soon. I get very attached to doing things in order, so I'm having trouble fighting that impulse and going with the ones that inspire me first (although I did decide to do the Veronica Mars ones last because I feel less comfortable writing in that fandom than BtVS/AtS).

    Oh! And this is a long week-end - yay for Victoria Day! And I'm taking a vacation day on Friday so I'll have a four day weekend!!! I'm so excited even though I'm sure I won't do everything I want to do.


    Character Meme

    cordelianne: (Xander "I have a tool")
    I got this from [ profile] karabair, [ profile] crazydiamondsue, [ profile] entrenous88 and [ profile] molly_may, and have to do it because I cannot resist something that lets me talk about my love for the characters on my shows:

    Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I will tell you my top 3 moments or scenes of them.

    I'll do any of my fandoms or shows that I watch: BtVS, AtS, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls, Everwood, Scrubs, 24, etc etc (ie. any show you know I watch).

    So how come you came up with Anne? (btvs 3:1)

    • Apr. 14th, 2006 at 11:07 PM
    cordelianne: (BuffyAnne)
    I'm taking advantage of the 3 day weekend and am visiting my family in Kingston. It's weird to be back in Kingston because there's always small things that have changed (a road where there wasn't one before), but basically it's the same. I'm very very thankful that my brother has wireless internet access set up in the house and that I brought my laptop. *clings to laptop* Of course, I'm now behind on my LJ reading because I've only just logged in now that my mom's gone to bed. We talked and talked, and then watched Moulin Rouge.

    I did the worst thing today, and it was totally unintentional but I still feel really bad about it. I was up really late last night doing laundry, gathering my tax info (so my dad can do my taxes), packing, and organizing my tv recording schedule. Even though I had set my two alarms so I'd have plenty of time to get ready and meet my friend, who was driving me (and a friend of hers) to Kingston, I completely slept in. Not only did I sleep in ridiculously late, but the ringer was turned off on my phone (because I work late nights, I frequently turn the ringer off so I'm not woken up and it was still turned off from the previous night). So, not only did I keep 2 people waiting, I also caused my friend to really worry about me because she couldn't get a hold of me. I still feel really guilty even though my friend and I worked it out, and she was really understanding about it. I just hate being irresponsible and inconveniencing people.

    In the car ride we did have a fun discussion about whether we'd sleep with Sawyer or Jack from Lost. The unanimous agreement was Sawyer. My friend suggested that Jack would probably cry, or be really clingy afterwards. We were torn about Jin and Sayid, but I think we all leaned more towards Sayid. I also noted that I'd sleep with Ana-Lucia because I think Michelle Rodriguez is HOT!!

    Changing topics entirely, I've seen the username meme floating around and have enjoyed reading how everyone chose their username. I love talking about how I came up mine so I had to do it as well. The origin of my username. )

    One last thing: If you haven't already checked out [ profile] earth_vexer's new icons here, they're wonderful!! I'm now heading off to grab lots and lots, and exclaim with glee.

    What would Buffy do?

    • Apr. 7th, 2006 at 8:52 PM
    cordelianne: (Xander "Need Buffy")
    Today I was exercising with the tv on the station which plays Buffy the Vampire Slayer repeats, and "The Freshman" was airing. It was great background for working out, until the scene when Xander gives Buffy his Dadaist pep talk, because it made me cry. I've seen every BtVS episode a ridiculous amount of times yet there are certain moments that get me every time, even if I'm in the middle of Pilates. I just love this speech so much:

    Xander: Buffy, I've gone through some fairly dark times in my life, faced some scary things, among them the kitchen at 'The Fabulous Ladies Night Club.' Let me tell you something, when it's dark and I'm all alone and I'm scared or freaked out or whatever, I always think, 'What would Buffy do?' You're my hero. Ok, sometimes when it's dark and I'm all alone I think, 'What is Buffy wearing?'
    Buffy: Can that be one of those things you never, ever, tell me about?

    For some reason this got me thinking about the various fandoms and obsessions that I've had over the years, so I thought I'd list a few of my favourite fan obsessions and embarrassing fan activities (some of these are from when I was very young). Feel free to tell me your shameful fan moments!! Here's mine: )

    I also did that Birthday meme, and the answers for September 2nd are here. )

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday night!!

    TV Show love and other random stuff

    • Mar. 21st, 2006 at 12:07 AM
    cordelianne: (Default)
    So [ profile] crossoverman, [ profile] karabair, [ profile] octoberxsong and [ profile] selenak all did this fun meme about Your Six Favourite TV Shows. And I just had to play!

    The tricky part for me was narrowing down my favourite televisions shows to a list of just six. To make it easier I decided not to include shows that ran for only one season (eg. Firefly, My So-Called Life, Freaks & Geeks) or are in their first seasons (eg. My Name is Earl, How I Met Your Mother, the new Doctor Who). I also cheated and included BtVS and AtS as one selection even though the shows are very different and deserve to be listed on their own. I also want to give a special shout-out to Joan of Arcadia which I didn’t include because it was cancelled after 2 seasons.

    List your top six favourite shows:

    1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel (BtVS/AtS)
    2. Everwood
    3. Gilmore Girls (GG)
    4. Veronica Mars (VM)
    5. Battlestar Galactica (BSG)
    6. Arrested Development (AD)

    The answers are here )

    Other random stuff:
    1. My cab driver hit on me last night. He actually gave me his phone number which I was so startled by that I just accepted. (I won’t call him though.) It was an okay experience because he wasn’t creepy about it or anything.

    2. [ profile] entrenous88 has a new Spike/Xander AU WIP fic Box Office Smash in which Xander’s an errand boy on the set of a movie. She posted the second part today and it made me so giddy and happy for the entire day! Go read!!

    3. I got to play more of the BtVS video game on Friday night. So much fun. I was particularly good at being Xander which made me very happy! I also kept giggling at the cheesy lines Xander would say: “Stake. A vampire’s last meal,” and, after staking a vampire “It’s so much better if I pretend they’re all Spike” (Of course I did not imagine any slashy connotations to that statement!)

    4. I’ve discovered that I get the most fic writing done on the subway. I’m thinking I need to find a few hours and just ride the subway so I can finish the fics I’m working on for [ profile] spring_with_xan and [ profile] entrenous88’s! ’The Replacement’ Celebration -- A Two Xanders Are Better Than One Brouhaha.

    It's Buffy day!!! *does the dance of joy*

    • Mar. 10th, 2006 at 4:04 PM
    cordelianne: (Default)
    Happy 9th Anniversary Buffy!!! How awesome is that it's 9 years to the day when Buffy the Vampire Slayer first aired?!!!! Oh, and if you were wondering, I did indeed do the dance of joy. I've even done the dance of joy for my co-workers before, thus confirming for them my insanity!

    [ profile] molly_may has a fabulous way of celebrating by asking people to Pick an episode that you feel is underrated, and tell why you like it. This idea makes me so happy, so I rambled on about my love for "Doublemeat Palace" and "Bad Eggs" here. I'm now inspired to write up something coherent about why I love "Bad Eggs" which I'll hopefully post in the next couple of days (hint: love of Xander is involved).

    [ profile] globalfruitbat tagged me to write a list of the five things that are most effective in bribing me. When I was thinking about this, I realized that I don't really need to bribed as long as you're nice and respectful to me and other people. But, that's not fun, so here's my list:

    1. Chocolate. As Buffy observes There is no problem that can not be solved with chocolate. Well, except for barfing!

    2. Offer to drive me somewhere in a car. Bonus points if it's to visit my grandpa or parents. I don't own a car nor do I need to because I live in downtown Toronto right on the subway line. Also, I hate driving and am scared of driving in Toronto (this is a result of being from a small city). I love to walk and take transit, particularly because it's good for the environment. But sometimes I just love the convenience of being driven somewhere.

    3. Talk about or offer to watch anything Jossverse.

    4. Talk about L.M. Montgomery with me, or better yet buy me the first edition of Anne of Green Gables. Of course, if someone could actually afford to buy the first edition I'd do ANYTHING for them. Oh dear, I hope my stalkers aren't reading this. Just kidding, I don't have stalkers (*looks around nervously*).

    5. Um, I'm having trouble coming up with a 5th one. So I'm going with: make me dinner. I hate to cook but love to eat yummy home-cooked meals.

    Okay, I tag [ profile] crazydiamondsue, [ profile] crossoverman, [ profile] entrenous88, [ profile] monster_grrrl, and [ profile] ozma914.
    cordelianne: (Xander)
    I’m sure the people whose journals I commented on last night must think I have no life. But I did go out last night … I have a life, really! I went to a work party where there was an open bar for a short time, which just means everyone gets drunk quickly and very early. There’s always lots of debauchery at my work parties, and this was no exception. By 10pm I’d had the same amount of alcohol that I have when I go out dancing and stay out until 3am, so I went home. I’m not big on the debauchery and not remembering anything the next day.

    So [ profile] entrenous88 tagged me with this meme DAYS ago, but I got all distracted that day. Then the link didn’t work (something about bandwidth exceeded) when I tried to do it, but I’ve done it now!!

    5 Guilts Meme )

    I’m planning to see Goodnight and Good Luck tonight, and then I’ll have seen all the films nominated for Best Picture!!! This may be the first year in a long time when I will actually have seen all the Best Picture nominees! Success for [ profile] cordelianne!!

    ETA: I just realized that I didn't include the link for the meme. *headdesk* I've now added it!
