6:47 pm - Pain. Lots of pain.
So, the internet here sucks. My emails don't go through. AND I CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE NEW SUPERNATURAL EPISODE! For some reason, it will probably (hopefully) let me post this, but I CANNOT DOWNLOAD 'IN MY TIME OF DYING'. *cries*

My mom and my brothers watched it together last night. I HAVEN'T.

Watch Sarah try and coax Azureus into any download speed. Seriously, I'll take 6 b/s, I just need to know that it's working and I'll have Supernatural while I'm over here in London.

P.S. The fact that Ewan MacGregor's daughter apparently goes to the day care center next door to my acting school and everyone has already seen him EXCEPT ME does not help.

No first celebrity crush sightings and no Winchesters. What is a girl to do?

current mood: Winchester-less

1:34 pm - Adjusting is good.
Hello again all,

So, considering the frustrating internet service at my flat, I've resigned myself to doing most of my computer work when I have breaks between classes. *nods* Adjusting is good.

I think I'm kind of getting the hang of living in London now, btw.

So... who wants an SPN XOVER crack!fic (and I do mean crack... )?

I've got to send it off to a beta, but the prologue should be done soon.

It's a super sekrit crossover, but it may or may not have to do with some other crazy kids traveling the country in a rockin' vehicle... *looks around shifty eyed*... was that obvious? Or are you all just completely confuzzled?

*whispers* They may or may not have a pet with them...

Right, so, now I'm late for class. *runs off* Hope to be seeing more of y'all soon!

current mood: late!

Hey all,

I'm sure some of you are wondering where the hell I've gone. Well, my flat in London supposedly has wireless internet, but it doesn't really. I mean, it does- sometimes. And in certain places. It's been very frustrating. They said they were going to fix it. They haven't.

I had pictures for you all- of Sherlock Holmes' place for the House fans, and of Winchester House and Winchester Castle for the Supernatural fans, but I don't know if my internet will last long enough for me to upload them.

Regardless, I feel awful about neglecting my flist, new and old, but non-existent internet has been the least of my worries. Just as soon as I got settled into my new London flat- around Wednesday or so, the hot water stopped working, and just went back on today. Today, however, my roommate (yes, the one I was complaining about) went to the hosptial because she was a rash of BLUE and PURPLE (no, those colors are not exaggerations) spots all over her body. They have no idea what it is. I've been living with her for a week, and they're keeping her in the hosptial for at least the rest of the week because they have no idea what it is or how long she's had it. Then we had to go see a play tonight for school and all the trains were cancelled, so we had to find a bus and it was in a really sketchy neighborhood, and really there is just not enough chocolate in the world right now.

Sorry, just- ugh: please forgive me until I can get decent internet service.

And will someone please rec me some Wincest that I've missed lately?

current mood: worried

3:18 pm - 'Ello everyone
Hi all,

Yes, I am finally writing from London. Crazy.

So, problem: my roommate? Kind of... weird. Seems really happy and innocent- big smile, red curly hair. First thing she asks me after she introduces herself is: So, what should I know about you as a roommate?

Me: bzuh? *blinks*

Yeah... nice to meet her, too, I know. All business. I think she thinks a lot of herself- keeps talking about the school she went to as if I should have clearly heard of it. Already found out she went on full scholarship and has a full-ride to college, too. She's playing music right now, and she keeps switching it, as if to showcase her fabulous and sophisticated taste in music. And she kept asking if it was okay if she put on this scotch-irish folk music she's really into, and I sure as hell haven't heard it yet. I mean, in return I told her I listen to South African pop, japanese techno, and french musicals (to name a few), so whatever she wanted to listen to was fine by me. I kind of have a huge urge to blast Metallica right now, though.

So. Needless to say, the unpacking isn't going so well, because I might request a change... A flatmate and I would rather double than with our current roommates, but how do you tell them that? Or the school? *sigh*

Anyway, I'm on 30 straight hours of no sleep right now, and feeling awfully horribly guilty about neglecting the flist and the fandom for the past week or so. So- my sincerest apologies (I know, again?) but this too shall pass, and the sooner the better.

Hugs to all.

current mood: exhausted

11:00 pm - Enchantez...
Hello all my new friends!

spn_gleeweek is actually the best thing EVER. I went a little crazy, I know, but SPN does that kind of thing to me.

In any case, a little about me: My name's Sarah and I'm a junior at Georgetown University, taking a semester abroad this fall to study at the British American Dramatic Academy in London. I want to be an actor. I love shaggy haired brunettes, which is why Jared Padalecki killz me ded everytime I look at him. I like to have conversations with God monologues about that, or Jensen, or Sam and Dean, or about how cruel and heartless Kripke can be when he puts his mind to it. There is never enough time for me to listen to all the music and read all the books I would like to, sadly. Favorites of the previous would include Guster, Matchbox Twenty, Michael Bublé, Jamie Cullum, Metallica, and Keane (those are the ones currently on frequent rotation anyway) and His Dark Materials, Harry Potter, American Gods, Hamlet, Man's Search for Meaning, The Last of the Just, Antigone (by Anouilh), Good Omens, and The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Favorite movies include: Moulin Rouge, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Batman Begins, Camelot, Singin' in the Rain, Joyeux Noel, Newsies, Aladdin, Shakespeare in Love, Boondock Saints, Spirited Away, and When Harry Met Sally. *phew* I prefer Jared to Jensen, and Sam to Dean if forced to make such a horrible decision, and I hem and haw over the latter very much- right now I'm just in a Sam mood. I follow some sports, but very casually- tennis (Andy Roddick and Andre Agassi), College basketball (Georgetown, of course-Hoya Saxa!), and baseball (Yankees). I follow movies much more closely. I'm usually very good at posting and commenting, though the next week is going to be tricky, what with the move across the pond and all that. Um, yes, this is much longer than I'd hoped- comment or message me (screen names are bluephoenix127 on AIM and i-am_what-i-am on MSN) questions, and chat about anything in particular.

If you have a chance, please leave a few notes here to introduce yourself, with some favorite music, books, and movies. Also, you're favorite ep from Season 1 of SPN and some favorite quotes or Sam and/or Dean moments wouldn't go amiss. ^_^

And now to bribe you: I bring presents of the picture, music, and ficlet kind!Collapse )

So now, I go to pack some more, and hopefully catch up with you all in the AM. TTFN, tata for now!

Oh, and btw, I am spoiler-free for Season 2 of SPN and I am that way for most fandoms I'm in. Hope y'all don't mind. ^_^

ETA: No, I have not even looked at the new spoiler-pics. Yes, I should be up for sainthood or something.

current mood: excited

10:57 pm - Packing procrastination: AGAIN
So, my new convert? Has been spreading the phrase "buckets o' crazy" EVERYWHERE. YAY!

Also, I watched Hell House drunk the other night with my friends... try playing a drinking game with that ep sometime- in the words of a one Dean Winchester: good times.

Also, that new convert?

So, madam_rosmerta and I were talking to him, and we were saying how it's pretty clear that if Jared and Jensen aren't in a relationship that it's at least pretty clear they have man crushes on each other.

His response?

"Y'know, it's kinda funny, but..."

Us: ... yes... what?

"Sam and Dean are SO slashable."

Us: \O/\O/\O/ (also thinking: How do you know what slashing is????)

current mood: excited

3:28 pm - *waves*
Hello all-

Sorry again for the MIA lately. I should've kinda figured that the week leading up to my departure for 3.5 months in a foreign country would be hectic and my life would not exactly be my own. In any case, the departure for London/BADA is but a few short days away and I am taking a break from packing as we speak. I'm hoping to finish up soon, for then I can finish up some of those fics to send off to betas!

As I write to y'all, I am also watching the US Open, and I just have this feeling that if Andy Roddick met Jared they would be super best friends- not like he's best friends w/ Jensen but I dunno. They both give me the same vibe some time. Really laid back in general, but serious about what they do for a living. Y'know- I'm sure they'd be an awesome match up on the PS2 or GameCube or whatever... Anyone else?

*ducks* Mom's back on the packing rampage. Hopefully I'll be back later.

See ya.

P.S. spn_gleeweek HAS STARTED!!! OMG YAY!!!!

3:16 pm - Mini-rant
Okay, so really quickly-

Why does everyone feel the need to treat me like I'm five over the phone? I mean, I know I look 14 and I must sound barely older than that because I'm making phone calls for work right now and everyone I talk to really treats me as if I don't know anything.

Sorry. Just- everyone does it. And I still have a lot more phone calls left to make.

current mood: aggravated

11:55 am - *cackles madly*
How happy does this make me?!!!?!?!?


You know what else makes me happy?

spn_themes, dear_dean and spn_gleeweek. (Okay, so spn_gleeweek hasn't really started up yet, but man I can't wait for Monday!)

*sits back with a sigh*

Oh... so... back to work now, I guess...? Aw man....

9:23 pm - Taking over the world, one innocent at a time...
Yes, I am alive.

I know- I've been MIA for a few days now. But, I have been productive.

*best Hermione impression* For example:

1) Fixing my computer ALL BY MYSELF!!!
2) Going to Sephora and learning how to put on non-stage-makeup! (This is a serious accomplishment...sadly...)
3) Getting headshots (good ones this time)!

Yes, you heard right folks- first my two brothers, then my mother, now: one of my best friends from high school.

His favorite moment thus far? "Anything that comes out of Dean's mouth basically... oh wait, 'Dude, you fugly!'"

His opinion of Cassie? "Can we skip to the next episode?"

So, he's watched up to 'Nightmare', which he loved. I told him to expect nothing on 'The Benders', but that 16-22 are all seriously awesome.

I done good, huh, guys?

ANYHOO... yeah, now that the computer's back up and running I can work on fic again. Yay! So... yis. Just thought I'd share the good news of a new convert with y'all.

P.S. OMG Jared, what have you DONE TO YOURSELF??? *ahem* So... anyone beside me VERY CURIOUS as to how/what scene he did that on??? Hmmm???

P.P.S. Poor Jensen... poor poor Jensen. Best grill? Awkward moments with Jessica Alba? No Jared-time? *shakes head* I'm so sorry man.

P.P.P.S. I didn't actually watch the Teen Choice Awards sadly. My brothers usurped the TV for the Red Sox/Yankees game and the YANKEES WON 5/5 FOR THE SERIES! *whoops* *hollers* *cheers*

current mood: mellow

10:14 pm - *sigh*
So, I started having this problem yesterday where I couldn't save anything on Word. Which is obviously a big problem because, uh, hello? I HAVE PORN TO WRITE/FINISH HERE PEOPLE!

So, I tried to fix it. With coding and stuff.

No, really. Go ahead, hit me one more time. I totally deserve it. *reels from virtual dopeslaps* I'm an idiot.

So basically I screwed up all the administrative stuff on my computer and have to reinstall the operating system. And Microsoft Office, once that's done.

Because I'm not doing it tonight. I'm so tired. Why am I always tired? I do not know. Then again, I can't recall the last time I've gotten more than 6 hours of sleep in a night, the average being less, despite my best efforts- that might have something to do with it though.

Anyway- does anyone know where I can get a piccy of Sammy in "Route 666" when he's all "Oh and you might wanna mention the serious unfinished business", but not that exact moment- the shot after that where he's all smiley and trying so hard not to laugh. Anyone? Because I SWEAR I am going to get the hang of Photoshop and make an icon.

Anyway, I'mma gonna go listen to my high school choir sing the Rutter Requiem some more because there's a user that I keep seeing on the spnnewsletter whose name is lux__aeterna which is also the name of one of the movements in that requiem (and most requiems if I'm not mistaken), and every time I see her username I keep thinking of it, so I had to dig through all my stuff and find it. And now I'm listening to it. It's very pretty. And we weren't half bad really...

3:19 pm - Pimptastic!
Because this cannot be pimped enough: The Massive Flist Fic Exchange of Doom

I offered to do 4, count'em 4, requests. I know. I'm legally insane. And there were MORE that I could/wanted to do. (But 4 is enough, don't ya think?)

Anyway, if you want, y'all could go take another look down towards the end of those comments and see if you wanna do any of mine...

Pretty please with sugar on top and ice cream in the middle???

4:31 pm - Stand-up comedy + Supernatural=???
So... you know you're way too obsessed with Supernatural when you go to see a stand-up comic and one of the punchlines inspires you to write Wincest. And it's just porn. No plot, just porn.

Basically, what I'm saying is that I somehow managed to get tickets to see Dave Chapelle live last night. And his opener had this one line. And I just kinda died laughing, but at the same time had this perfect fully-developped plot in my head for Wincest porn.

So, apologies for lack of comments from yesterday (I am catching up, however) what with the day off and the errands and the Dave Chapelle, but just know that I'm also writing.

What was I saying about being incapable of making anything but crack...?

current mood: silly

10:29 pm - Superntaural Fic Recs
Hehehe, I don't have work tomorrow! *does a little dance* (It's only 'cause I have to go shopping for London.) Anyway, in celebration of this wondeful day off and getting to sleep in a little bit, I give you lots of recs (because I've been putting this off for far too long now). But: yay!

I wish I didn't have to cut this-you better click anyway!Collapse )

Anything y'all would like to suggest in return?

current mood: happy

9:58 pm - Tonight, where do we go from here?
Okay flist, I have a few more things I wanna talk about today.

First off: a meme, b/c I actually haven't done it before). Gakked from sonicbookmark:
Go here and look through random quotes until you find 5 that you think reflect who you are or what you believe. Repost in your journal and tag 5 friends.

We know truth, not only by reason, but also by the heart.
-Blaise Pascal

Hope is necessary in every condition.
-Samuel Johnson

Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must.
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Wait until it is night before saying that it has been a fine day.
-French Proverb

We have been taught to believe that negative equals realistic and positive equals unrealistic.
-Susan Jeffers

Everyone should just go for it- it's always fun to read great quotes. *iz a dork*

Okay, so about those things to talk about:
1) Are there any Guster fans out there? If so, what did y'all think of Ganging Up on the Sun? Because it just didn't seem very... Guster-ish... to me. I dunno what it was, but I only really like one song on the album, and that makes me sad. So, your thoughts???
2) This makes me sad. First of all, it was funny for a moment because I refused to believe that it was Jensen because he wasn't with Jared or another WB/CW person- I literally thought: JENSEN DOENS'T HAVE FRIENDS OUTSIDE OF THE WB, WTF ARE YOU THINKING?!??!?! And then I realized I've been living in fangirl/fandom world too long. But, seriously. The whole Jensen: douche or just shy? argument? How could Jared be friends with him if he was a douche? Serious question- someone help me here. I mean, we KNOW what Jared's like. I just can't see him being friends with a douche. And besides, anyone would be entertained with pictures like that- taking them is one thing, but even the nicest girls and guys I know would crack a smile at stuff like that. *sigh* This discussion will never end, will it? Alas. Send me your thoughts if you don't wanna stab me.

current mood: curious

Okay, flist, can we talk about a few things here?

You see this and this and this and this?

Okay- you ever seen that movie Down With Love (Ewan MacGregor and Renee Zellweger)? Well, if you haven't (it's cute, btw, you should-Sandy's in it briefly, actually), the whole point is that Renee Zellweger's character writes a book about how women can enjoy sex "a la carte" just like a man, that they don't necessarily need love to have sex- well, one of the steps of the process is: up with chocolate.

And here I am, eating through one of my special Lindt chocolate bars that I only eat on very special occasions because they are so expensive and you can't just buy them anywhere.

Because of Jared and Jensen *points above*. IT'S ALL THEIR FAULT.

Seriously? It's just not fair, okay?

*looks up at heaven*

Me: Hey Man, I know we haven't talked in awhile, but um, can we talk for a sec?
God: *silence*
Me: Listen, I know You were never really big on the whole "spreading the wealth equally" thing when You were handing out the goods up there, but, um, these guys? Really, they got too much. I'm not asking for it- all I'm saying is that if you had just spread the wealth a little more there'd be more and only slightly less hot men to go around- and seriously, You freakin' OVERDOSED them beyond belief on the hotness. What's a poor girl like me supposed to do? I mean, are you hiding more of them somewhere? As in, somewhere where I could, concievably, eventually find one and have one all for my very own? Because if not, and there are only two, that was just poor planning on Your part. Even slighly less ridiculously hot would be FREAKIN' HOT and there would be more to go around, y'know? I'm just sayin'...

And, btw, flist, having read the new J^2 interview- I just watched Devil's Trap again the other day (w/ my mom who's still in slightly less vehement denial about JDM, btw) and can I just say: Jensen Ackles and Jeffrey Dean Morgan you are just amazing actors. (Jared is great, too, but that ep is about Dean and the demon). Jensen is so intense in everything he does in that episode, and yet it's not over the top, it's still completely believable. And Jeff's voice and body control are just beyond compare. I can't even articulate what I want to say about what an amazing job they did acting in that episode... but if you don't know what I mean, ask and I will articulate further and more coherently, I swear.

And also, a little RL stuff for ya:

So, I went to one of my acting classes last night, and my teacher said that I have a lot of natural talent, and that he thought I should go audition for the next Uma Thurman movie (In Bloom) this weekend. I mean, just extra stuff, but still. And he wants to coach me and work with me this fall. I was kinda floored- those are the first major props I've been given when it comes to acting. I told him I really appreciated hearing that, and that I'd talk to him when I got back from London. So... yeah.

We also filmed our monologues (long shot and close up) and he's going to edit them together- when I get a copy I'll post it if it's any good.

P.S. Sorry for having been MIA for the past few days- there was a friend edging over the "stalker" line and... yeah. Y'know how that can get.

current mood: hot

5:28 pm - Happy (belated) birthday...
... to sonicbookmark and sanyin!!!

I know it's late, but y'know, if I wasn't such a horrible procrastinator, this would have been decent and on time. But I am a horrible procrastinator. And I don't want this to be any later than it already is- so I'll dedicate something better to you in the future, I promise.

Title: Under Pressure
Pairing/Rating: Sam/Dean, NC-17
Warnings: Teh sex and teh dirty talk- no plot.
Summary: Dean gives Sam a massage, Sammy's a persuasive sweet-talker, things take a turn. You know the drill.
Thank you: to the freakin' amazing candygramme for some of the best beta-work ever.

Harder... right there...Collapse )

4:45 pm - For hire
Okay, so, ignore the cut, but please read the offer afterward and consider.

Apparently, my age regression is nearly completeCollapse )

So, anyway, does someone have something they'd like me to do? As in, is there a vid/fic or just something that you've always wanted to see? Because I'm up for hire and looking for motivation right now. Seriously. This is not a joke. I know what cheers me up. ^_~

12:09 pm - Work, work, work... she'll never get her dress done!
Ah, so I have almost completed my flist catch up- yes, while at work, and putting work off to do so. What? It was a slow morning, for once.

This weekend with madam_rosmerta was absolutely loverly. I took her to eat at all my favorite places and we went swimming and we fangirled and it was just so much fun. And I miss her already. We also went to friends and family night at Gap, because one of my friends works there, and that is actually the best deal ever- 35% off everything you buy, free food, and hardly anyone's there. Awesome. I got a new pair of black jeans and a hat. Good stuff- everyone should have a friend who works at Gap. For reals.

And a memeCollapse )

Alas, Marj did not teach me how to use Photoshop, but she said she's going to send me some tutorials which should help, which is good. Because the ads are getting kinda annoying...

And happy belated birthday to sanyin! Wish I had something to give you- I can try and make a quick vid or write a quick fic if you want? And sonicbookmark any requests??? Lemme know!

current mood: chipper
