Basically, I am so indecisive tonight. I hope you are all doing well, I am hanging in there at times, floating at other times.

Instead of trawling the fanfictions which don't seem very updating tonight, I'll try and watch a 20-30min show and check back to see if anyone's helped me choose what I should focus on next. Or maybe I'll check it in an 1hr or tomorrow.

So, I quickly went through my friends list via the 'manage page' to see if I missed people removing me in the four months I've not posted or read anything here. Yikes that's almost my longest time I think... pleasantly suprised to see none, or maybe just one removal. But that may also mean some people have dropped away from here?

I also found names I don't quite remember and some accounts finally purged/deleted. Not highlighting/making it a livejournal link name because the deleted accounts may end up linked to someone I don't know anymore. Oh well.

Purged *waves goodbye to those I did have some communication with previously*-
yamikinoko
snowdarkred -you had very intelligent discussions and I will miss some of your ncis stories.
pyroclastic -on/off discussions, and glee of course

Accounts with name changes(?): *why are they both 's' beginning accounts hahaha

So long absence again. Have been up to a lot and not a lot, as per usual. ;)

I see only three signed in guests visited my journal the last month, whoops, it is looking a bit bare.

Talking about bears, oh we weren't? "There's a bear in there, and a chair as well..."

Playschool? Simon Burke! I was so pleased on Saturday I got the final last, ever last for this season cheapest price ticket to Melbourne production of La Cage Aux Folles! I saw the show (final show of their run) last night! Oh it was fun! Simon was brilliant as expected and I did love Todd's character acting. I'm a little used to John Barrowman's versions of the songs so I don't want to compare their singing. It was FIVE years in the making, waiting, hoping. For that to happen. SO glad Simon was cast. Anyone with me back then when I fangirled over Barrowman AND Burke being in the same musical together? Here is the post to refresh old memories. Now I just need to see John Barrowman perform something live, wouldn't that be fun! Seeing Rhonda Burchmore and Gary Sweet is always a bit of fun too. Only unfortunate part was I couldn't organise to go to an earlier performance date and do stage door to meet the cast in person, being last night and all they probably had cast party wraps.

I ended up browsing through Youtube videos post show, listening to Barrowman's songs again. The Doctor & I! I forgot about that song, hadn't heard it since '10. But so great, know I've seen Wicked for the first time this year too.

Tonight I saw an advanced screening of the movie The Imitation Game. It was a lot funnier than I expected, and do recommend.

Sorry for quiet time again.
Last two weeks were school holidays = work almost every day weeks.

Also my laptop is still being silly and rebooting and what not. But anyway..

JB Hi Fi have had a week (or more?) or 'buy 2 get 1 free' tv dvd specials and so I have been tempted to buy some shows for once. Haven't yet though. I couldn't decide if I'd get 'nostalgic stuff' like Angry Beavers, Rugrats, The Wild Thornberry's or favourites or newer stuff I haven't seen or finished. They sent me an email today saying there is supposedly an amazing set of deals just for tomorrow, and I can get an extra 5% off with the email in store. So if the deal ends up being better than 20% off dvds maybe I'll cave and get something who knows?

I did buy clothes last weekend on a whim for once, amazing warehouse/garage sale of the brands Dangerfield, Pulp Kitchen, Lush, St Lenny's and even though I had little time (we went there straight after work finished early) I somehow picked a bunch of things that seemed to *fit* me.

Now. Where was I? Oh, figured I'd log in to see if polls still worked/were available. And see if I have anyone left who is on my friends list even though I hardly use LJ anymore. :(

This poll may also help or maybe hinder my decisions to buy dvds tomorrow. Who knows!

Other show to buy suggestions..



PS. I've read a fair bit of CSI: NY Mac/Stella fanfic last week, was amazing some people had updated or posted fic. So many were angst/comfort though, almost hard to get through but nicer than the pure angst ones that had been the usual MO of the better authors there.

Happy belated birthday wish for last Monday janefire if you're still around here!

~~~

In other birthday things. What I did for mine and various thank you's to ma' LJ peeps! :D

On the Wednesday (actual birthday):
[the week of fun]+ Went to the local shops with a friend and we redeemed my free San Churros birthday voucher for a share plate of freshly made churros with cinnamon sugar and two dips (we chose milk chocolate & caramel). Super yummy! My friend then bought us both ice cream in a cone from San Churro's, I had red velvet in a plain waffle cone. So good. I've not had their ice cream before.

+Takeaway dinner, Indian, from on of the local shops with family (just mother and brother since dad was overseas for work)
+Opened family gifts, just 'filler' gifts from immediate family really, and some money from my cousins and grandma.

Thu
+Was a little late to my own shindig/gathering because manager called me up to ask about something from a few weeks back. I invited a few friends out for drinks/food, we went to three different places, with people leaving/arriving whenever they felt like it. It was nice, until almost midnight a friend offered a lift home a few of us followed her and we saw the carpark doors closing as we approached! The guy was pretty rude about it, and half of us were left on the other side of the doors, hoping our friends wouldn't have to pay the after hours 'exit fee'. Panicking a bit really, but they got there about two minutes before close he should have left at least one of the four doors open, he was just wanting to go home I think. I read the sign and it said 100 dollars to call a number to get someone to come down afer hours! Yikes. Luckily he was just grumpy and let them out, but wow not a great way to end the night!

Sat
+Went grocery shopping with mum, and got my free birthday Subway and drink, we shared that and a tv dinner for our meal when my brother was out at work, haha.

Tue
Dad got back Monday and was too tired sick to do much, I got cake to have Tuesday night instead.
Just a grocery store one, but one we haven't tried before. Red Velvet cake with raspberry cream cheese icing!
Yum, not amazing but not horrible.


Miscellaneous birthday redemptions
[food and retail]So other than San Churros, Subway. I had Boost freebie but forgot/was too lazy to get, I ended up getting myself the caramel popcorn smoothie last week for a special price though, yummy! Dymocks, I just stumbled across a cheap crime fiction book to use their birthday offer on. And I redeemed a voucher from a friend today in fact from last year, got myself a shiny time turner! Kikki-K and Witchery birthday vouchers will be used at some point later this month when I decide what to get, and Palace Cinema members free movie too.

Thank you's!

Other gifts
[Hopefully I remembered everything]From xfirefly9x for a surprise dvd gift: Being Erica series 2 (I will try and remember to take photos and edit into this post)
Friends who came to my get together (I didn't expect presents but a couple still gave):
-one gave a cute bumblebee pack of soap and bath fizz bomb from Lush
-another my first H&M item (first every Australian H&M opened here in early April) a tube scarf -sequined and white
-two other friends gave a joint voucher to Gold Class cinemas
-I also got a couple of birthday cards from co-workers who came :)


PS. If I've missed anyone's group birthdays message posts (ie I haven't left a thank you comment or placed you here) please direct me to the page, I haven't logged in much the last week and I just scanned the few posts around the 4th to check

Because the 30 day meme hasn't got enough answers, I thought this would be a nice short one to do for now. :)
If you don't remember/know my shows links of lists in my previous entry. Or just say one and if I don't know it well enough I'll ask you to guess another show, haha.

snagged from sinfulslasher

Pick a show and I'll tell you...
- The first character I fell in love with:
- The character who is my ‘baby’:
- The character who I do not understand:
- The character that I think the show ruined:
- The most attractive male and female character:
- The character death that was the worst for me:
- The character that is the most like me:
- The character I think the writer(s) love:
- The character that I just want to be happy:
- My four favorite characters, past or present:
- My four least favorite characters, past or present:

It seems I'm *points to subject heading*. Yep.

So I thought I hadn't updated my fandoms list but I had (even if it was in December I haven't started anything new I think?), but I did forget about my reference fandom pairings/favourite characters list I started so I updated that one! If anyone wants to find/write anything for me I'd be pointing them to those because I think they're pretty extensively written out now. ;)

~~~

I didn't go get a book I wanted today, cramps came at a bad time, in fact I checked the missed call I couldn't pick up later and I think I missed a potential interview -same company sent a 'job unsuccessful' email a few hours later, so damn I may have missed just because I didn't pick up the phone. *sigh*

I updated my dvd list, with some notes.
I've won a fair chunk of my movie dvds from places so thought I should show that, and then in the end I decided to put a symobl for if I have yet to watch any of a tv series (from tv or dvd).

Yep, so list is over here.
