So yeah... guess who just booked her tickets to London today? *happy dances*

Now to save some pennies so that I can eat and things of that nature while I'm there...

Ok, so yeah... went to the midnight screening of Avengers last night. NGL, it was freaking awesome and I have all kinds of feels.

DO NOT CLICK IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT, SPOILERY SPOILED SPOILERS AHEAD )
darling_lisa: (RDJ Iron Man back)
Ok, so the Avengers trailer was released today ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zatgnqdIefs if you haven't seen it yet/want to watch it again and again and again) and I just can't stop flailing over it.

Things that induced dolphin noises:

- LOKI! All badass and misunderstood! *pets him*

- Thor looking all woobie! HUGE pic below, cut to spare your flist ) Also? Jebus but that man's ARMS.

- Cap and Tony arguing, with bonus Tony snark!

- TONY! My love for Robert Downey Jr/Iron Man is ridiculous but can you blame me when he looks like this??? )

Seriously, I am so emotionally involved in this movie it's prolly not healthy. But man... the cast is just spot on and based on the Iron Man/Cap America/Thor movies, Marvel is just hitting this one out of the ballpark. And then add in Joss as the director? I am wibbling already and praying that he doesn't decide to rip our hearts out and stomp on them. *laugh*

(Caps yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] rawr_caps... thank you so much!)

First off, I think I need to make a sacrifice to the travel gods or something... they seem to not like me this year. My 9:05p departure to Vegas last week? Left at 10:30p. It's like I can't get an on time flight to save my life!

Luckily Vegas is the city that never sleeps, and I had the chattiest cab driver EVER. He was cracking me up giving me the scoop on everything happening in town over the weekend and opinions on my hotel, the bar we were going to, those crazy Ravers from Electric Daisy Carnival, etc ad nauseum. LOL

The Kane gig... )

In other news, I am back in QA for a week, and then back on the phones for my last 3 weeks of the year. *shudder*

Oh, but I picked up 2 Big Bangs to do art for for Star Trek Big Bang this year *bounces* And I think I might be doing some art for another Hawaii 5-0 bang, but I honestly can't remember if I signed up for that or not... hmmm, I should prolly check...

Ok, thats it for me today, off to work...
darling_lisa: (With my suitcase)
2 weeks on the phones are finally over. Sadly I only get a week's reprieve before I have to go back for the October filing deadline. But then I'm done until Mid January. We just won't discuss how well or not I'm coping with the return to the phones...

BUT!!

In about an hour and a half I am heading to the airport to catch a flight to Vegas for the Kane weekend of awesome. Gonna catch the boys show tomorrow night and get a chance to spend some quality time with my girls. Short trip, I am back home Saturday night, but it should be awesome.

And to carry me through the 3 hellish weeks on the phones for the next deadline, I have the thoughts of New Orleans and a visit from [livejournal.com profile] caarirose and Kane show up in Phoenix with Cari and N-squared and whoever else we can drag along with us. *bounces*

I hope everyone has a great weekend *hugs*

Ok, so there will be a post later about my weekend and the varied and numerous ways in which surprise!dental issues suck. But right now, can we talk about X-Men First Class? THIS MOVIE. I have feelings about this movie. This is how they should have done it in the first place. You know, with actual characters that are more than plastic (albeit pretty, pretty plastic) cutouts that vaguely resemble their comic book counterparts.

Yes, there are still some issues, but honestly? If you aren't a comic book geek who has read the stories before, you wouldn't really notice them. And I have some issues with the whole Raven/Mystique issue and her bizarre treatment. But if for no other reason, go see this movie for Charles and Erik. This is the defining moment in their lives, this is how Professor Xavier and Magneto are created, this is the story that will break your heart every time you think about them.

And yes, it is slashtastic. OMG YES.

Maybe I'll manage some more coherent thoughts later... but for now, I want to urge everyone to hit the kink memes [livejournal.com profile] 1stclass_kink and [livejournal.com profile] xmen_firstkink. The difference between them is that 1stClassKink doesn't allow underage prompts and XmenFirstKink does.

Also, if you are into Firefly/Serenity at all, you need to read this one http://1stclass-kink.livejournal.com/806.html?thread=477990#t477990 It's a WIP with only one chapter posted so far, but DUDE.

It's here!

Ok, so that thing I was wishing for last week? A comm where people could "shop" for fic or art or mixes from all corners of fandom and pay by donating to a charity of the author's choice? Well with a little help, it has come to fruition.

But, we need your help too. To make this work, we need people from everywhere who are willing to create fan works in exchange for a donation to a charity. It doesn't have to be a huge donation of time or effort, offer to write a few drabbles or make a header for $5... Every little bit helps and everybody wins.

Interested? Head on over to [livejournal.com profile] fandomgivesback and sign up, or watch the comm if you think you might be able to donate.

Also, please help us get the word out and pimp us out.

darling_lisa: (Default)
Ok, so here we go :D

General Info
First off, all the prompts are coming from the super awesome tumblr Sex is not the enemy, and that is the inspiration for this ficathon in the first place.

Also I am shamelessly stealing this idea from [livejournal.com profile] villainny who hosted this last year and I only found out about it too late by clicking on a link from a friends journal, but I thought it was fantastic and have been wanting to hold one of my own ever since.

How it works
As for how it works, you comment here with the info I ask for below, and in return, I'll provide you an image prompt from the Sex is Not the Enemy tumblr. You will then write a story of at least 500 words inspired by the image and post it on your LJ/Dreamwidth/AO3/website and post a link here in a comment. (If you wish, once you have completed your story, you may ask for another prompt.) On Feb 13 I will collect everyone's completed prompts and post a master list.

You can write your prompt in any fandom that you wish, including original fiction. I do ask that you keep the genders the same as in the original image ie: if you receive an image of a woman astride a man, you write a story with a woman and a man in it. However, feel free to swap the roles/positions at will ie: the man is astride the woman wearing a strap on.

Sign ups will be open from now until Feb. 13th, and you can post your responses until the 13th as well if you wish to be included in the master post that goes up on the 14th. If you don't make it by then, well I'd still love to see what you come up with and you can link your finished story here at any post and I'll update the master post as fic comes in. This is very much a no harm, no foul ficathon. ;)

Sign ups
Still interested? Copy and Paste this into your comment below; delete anything that you aren't interested in writing.

If you change your mind after you have written a prompt, then you can sign up again with a new comment.

Participants: Solo - Two - Threesome - Group Sex
Sex: Male - Female - Male/Male - Male/Female - Female/Female - Male/Male/Female - Female/Female/Male - Male/Male/Male - Female/Female/Female - Male group - Female group - Mixed group

Questions?
Any quetions? Ask them below and I'll do my best to figure out an answer for you *grin*

Oh, and please feel free to spread the word on this one, I think the more people that play the more fun for all of us. I'm gonna try and come up with a little banner today, but I've got to work so we'll see. Now with 3 banners below the cut... )

I'm waiting for my laundry to finish so I can get my packing done. Tomorrow I am having an early Thanksgiving with my family and then heading to the airport to catch a flight to Vegas. I'll be meeting up with Sarah and Natalie and there will be a long weekend of fun and adventures and I am so freaking ready I can't even tell you. I miss my girls like crazy, its been too damn long.

To everyone heading to London for the Vampire Ball, or just to family or friends to celebrate the holiday, safe travels and I hope you have a fantastic weekend! I won't be back until late Monday night, but I am sure there will be stories to tell when I return. ;)
darling_lisa: (Wheee!)
So work pretty much blew donkey balls today, running from one meeting to another and trying to put out fires in between. Oh and did I mention the part where no one could get into our site because the roads were closed by the police for several hours?

BUT, today has been saved by several small, but key things.

1 - replacing the text message sound on my cell phone with the Star Trek communicator chirp. This makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy in my geeky place.

2 - texting Brandi all night about tv. Even though she is in Washington and I miss her like whoa, we have been texting on and off all night about the tv we are watching. She is currently going on about the homoerotic glances and silliness of RAW wrestling, and I am babbling about fabulous and incredibly bitchy drag queens. And we both agree that Jake Gyllenhal does NOT look like the Prince of Persia.

3 - cheesecake. Not something I have very often at all, I can't stand most cheesecakes, but every now and again I get a yen for one. So I splurged tonight and bought a single slice. So creamy and vanilla and perfect. I literally only had about 4 forkfuls and the rest is in the fridge, will prolly last me the rest of the week if PMS doesn't kick in, lol.
darling_lisa: (C/S hugs)
Waiting for Neil to come pick me up and take me to the airport so I can get my trip to Portland underway. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend and I'll see you all on Monday when I get home!
