If you are waiting for a fill from your request at my shuffle fic meme, please read this!


I still have to fill fics for: [livejournal.com profile] nox_candida, [livejournal.com profile] mywittyuzername, [livejournal.com profile] ourdramaqueen, [livejournal.com profile] ilovewales, [livejournal.com profile] annjej76, and [livejournal.com profile] flying_dreamz.

ATTENTION: If you are any of the abovementioned people, I will fill your requests, but please be patient! Many of these are turning into much longer fics than I expected, so it will take me a while to fill them. I do have rough outlines done for everyone except for those of you who put in a request today. I am hoping to get at least part of everyone's posted in the next two weeks.

Thank you all for such great prompts! I'm having a lot of fun plotting them out. :)
EDIT 8/11: I am temporarily freezing this post and am not currently taking any more prompts. Flying_dreamz' prompt is the the last prompt I will take for the time being. I will unlock this post and take more prompts once I've caught up. Thank you for your patience, especially those of you waiting on fills. :)

I am bored, and want to write. I heard somewhere that there's a shuffle meme going on. So, if you want, pick a number between 1-1016 (that's how many songs are in my iTunes right now) and I'll write a Sherlock drabble/ficlet based on the song you choose. Feel free to specify rating, characters, etc. in your request. The only pairing I've done is John/Sherlock, but I might stretch to others if you ask. :)

Fire away!

EDIT

Fics are also being posted separately to my journal. Feel free to comment at either place. :)

If not, go vote!

I only had to wait about 10 minutes in line for the polls today, which is awesome.

Still need to make final determinations of where I'm applying and get a list of addresses to my letter writers. Now thinking of applying at Marquette, U of Wisconsin, U of Indiana-Bloomington, and a few others.

Lots of the first year TAs have been coming to my ENG 101 class and observing me teach. I get glowing reviews from them, but it's still nerve-wracking and kinda scary, especially since these reviews go to my boss. What's even scarier is that it was only two! TWO! years ago that I was doing those exact same observations. I feel all grown up now.

Quarter's almost over--hallelujah! I will never teach 5 classes at once again. The sheer amount of grading I've done this quarter is mind-boggling.

And as for the DW news, I'm still a bit in denial. But, I think, everything will be fine in the end.

For a fun question: on Ravelry's Doctor Who group, there's a meme going around:

Things you've learned from Doctor Who.

So, my fellow Whovians, what have you learned from Doctor Who? Pass it on!

I have learned that impossible is just a word, not a finality. I've also learned never to give up hope, even when everything seems impossible.

My Personal Dna Report

Now off to write about women in the Lord of the Rings.
Holy crap this thing is pretty scarily accurate. I'm putting behind a cut because it's big and I don't want to screw up your journal.

The Enneagram test )

And how cool is it that LJ now autosaves your posts? I wish that had been around sooner when my internet kept fritzing out last year.
Ahahaha. That google meme:

type "[your name] needs" (yes, with the quotation marks) into google and see what comes up. Post it in your journal so that your friends can laugh at you.

1. Sarah needs: a new home right away!!!!!eleventyone!!!

2. Sarah needs: a cold shower; self esteem. Well, maybe not the shower....

3. Sarah needs: your help.

4. Sarah needs: comforting.

5. Sarah needs: to keep her housing expenses to less than 33% of her take home pay.

6. Sarah needs: someone to escort her from port to port so she can find her father. (This one was for a romance novel)

7. Sarah needs: to be hooked up to a respirator in order to survive.

8. Sarah needs: increased home bound tutoring. I AM a tutor dammit!

9. Sarah needs: to play.

10. Sarah needs: to feel peaceful.

1) Bold what is true about you.
2) Italicize what you wish was true about you.
3) Add one true thing about you to the end of the list.

Whee! I have 100 userpics omg!

Orientation was rally fun today. All of my sessions went really well, which made me v. happy. Now I have to race around and frantically pack everything. I don't know why I'm panicking so much as I'm only moving 20 minutes away and can come back and get stuff, but I just want it all there on Sunday so I don't have to make 15 trips back and forth.

*runs off to packpackpack*

Ah yes. As requested by [livejournal.com profile] pippinmctaggart and [livejournal.com profile] app1e_pi, ten things that make me happy, in no particular order:

-My cats
-Reading a really good book
-Matt
-A soft bed with lots of pillows
-Listening to some of my instrumental Celtic CDs
-Playing on the internet
-Chocolate
-Lord of the Rings and all the movies/books/actors
-Hugs
-A really good nap

I'm really easy to please :)

And omg when did my room get so..dirty and dusty? I've been cleaning out all the little nooks and crannies and just ew. gross.
In response to Meg's order request, I present my response to the Six Songs Meme. In which one names six songs one is currently digging no matter the genre or reason or order, then lists them in one's LJ along with these instructions, after which one tags six other people and bids on bended knee to do the same.

1. Flower of Scotland by Steve McDonald
2. Amanda's Wedding from the Emerald Isle CD.
3. Catch the Moments as They Fly from the Celtic River CD.
4. Si Do Mhaimeo from the Celtic Woman CD. I highly recommend this CD as all four women who sing on it are AMAZING.
5. One More for Love by Five for Fighting
6. The Breaking of the Fellowship by Howard Shore.

I tag Chelle.
If anyone wants these songs, let me know and I'll upload them to ysi later.
I have also been up for...17 hours straight, and am stumbling to bed even as I'm pressing "post." Need sleep omg.
Because [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com] asked me nicely.

Ten celebs that I find attractive, in no particular order.

1. Billy Boyd
2. Dominic Monaghan
3. Viggo Mortensen
4. Harrison Ford
5. Elijah Wood
6. Ian McKellen (he's so distinguished looking...mmmm)
7. Sean Bean
8. Josh Holloway (Sawyer on Lost, can't remember his last name)
9. Naveen Andrews
10. Ian Somerhadler
