My journal is not friends only and probably never will. I don't update as often as I could (or would want) and only sometimes do I speak of anything outside of fandom, so I don't have all that much to say that would need to be locked. However, I'd still like to know a bit about the people who friend me before I friend them back. If you'd like to friend me, let me know something about you.

If you're just friending my journal to watch my graphics, you don't need to comment if you don't want.

Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special. Think about all your past layouts, default icons, mood themes. How about all those conversations you had via comments, or the huge post in ONTD that you spent all night commenting on.

A Dance of Dragons arrived today!!! And I haven't watched Harry Potter yet. Thus commences my Internet hiatus days...

So I haven't been nearly as active around here as I'd hoped but I had to post about my excitement about the new A Song of Ice and Fire book, which will be making its way to my hands soon! I don't know how many Game of Thrones show fans in my flist have read the books but this is a momentous occasion... it's been years coming! I'm very excited and somewhat apprehensive. I wish I'd had time to re-read the whole series before tackling this volume, because I'm sure there'll be a lot of things I've forgotten. But I'm so looking forward to seeing what is happening to my favorite characters while the events on A Feast For Crows were going on. And then, once I finish the book, despair that it'll be a long, loooong while, until the next one.

I've also become somewhat fascinated lately by the X-Men fandom again after watching James McAvoy (whom I love) in the First Class movie. It makes me want to re-read the comics of my childhood before I lost track of a lot of the storylines because, damn, there were a lot of comics and I stopped reading a long time ago.

Also, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are hilarious together. And hot.

Random thought of the day: setting a dark background wallpaper on your computer really helps show off how disgusting and dirty your screen is. Eeek!

And I finally got myself some more Game of Thrones icons. But they're still not enough. I need moar!

In other news, please help me and my team out at whedonland, please!! We need more people to come show their support for Firefly. Even if you have never watched a single episode, please come to the post and say you support it. The honor of the Browncoats rests on you! We don't want to fail miserably and humiliatingly.

So, I have sorta gone between being completely silent on my journal because of real life, inability to be inspired and just too much obsessing over other stuff, to joining four land comms in the past month (one of which I actually forgot I'd joined) and signing up as a pinch hit artist for the SPN/J2 Big Bang. I'd forgotten all the work that entails! So little time to make covers and graphics and solve puzzles and I'm still somewhat rusty on the quick and dirty photoshop foo.

Game of Thrones continues to be the awesomest of awesome shows out there. Really, it is everything I'd hoped it would be, including the main characters. Tyrion, Dany and Arya are as fantastic and badass as they are on the books (Jon will get there in time). And the title sequence is probably my favorite thing ever. Plus, there's sword fighting and gritty sex and idek. I don't care if you disagree, this is my reality and you're welcome to live in a reality of your own choosing where you have no idea what Game of Thrones is (please to be educating yourself on the wonders of westeros before the Others take you) or do not think it is perfection (which means you suck and why are we friends again?). Though I'm all talk and no icons... this is the only one I've uploaded so far. Damn, I'm lazy.

I am also suffering through the awful feeling that is a certain time of the month in a woman's life. This time always leaves me kind of murderous so if someone looks at me even a little bit funny, I won't be responsible for my actions. Also, there is no emoticon that adequately conveys the feelings during this time. Certainly not Martha Jones with her wind-blown hair.

Have you ever forgotten you've made an icon? You find a psd in your files and scratch your head wondering who the hell made it and why it is in your files before you finally realize, after opening it and going layer by layer, that you actually did make that particular icon? No? Well, it just happened to me. Yay!

I feel dumb. /o\

And I need to upgrade my RAM memory. My laptop is slow as hell, especially when I open photoshop and try to use it while having webpages and itunes open. This does not improve my mood, you piece of shit computer!

In other news, I found myself downloading and playing a game called imobsters that has had me attacked over 40 times and killed over 15 times in the past 3 days. Not the best welcoming committee for a new player, no. I have now forced myself to reset my character and follow cheat sheets and instructions on how to best play the game because, damn, I'm not going to keep on getting trounced like that again!

And in yet other news, I painted my nails bright blue and got lots of strange looks or surprised cries from the people who know me. Which isn't surprising given I rarely paint my nails and when I do it's usually some kind of pink/violet or transparent nail polish. But the color is so pretty and I'm trying to diversify the colors of my wardrobe by adding more summery colors and getting nails to match. I also bought lime green nail polish! I want to add a stripe of green at the end of my blue nails when they grow or I put gel on them. I think it'll look cool... maybe?

I have yet to watch the latest Game of Thrones episode. I am seriously slacking. And my internet connection is slow on the download too... grrr.

I'm watching some Supernatural convention videos right now. I'd forgotten how cute and hilarious Jared and Jensen were. Whenever Supernatural gets cancelled, they should think about starting a touring comedy duo or something.
