How weird is it that as soon as I sign up for the two week free Paid LJ trial I suddenly have very little to say? Good job me, all that extra icon space going to waste! That really is the only reason I see to have a Paid account - all the extra icon space. I don't really use any of the other features.

The past week has been a tangle of house hunting and various social activities. There was a friend's 25th birthday last Friday where we all went out to Thai Cottage and had lovely Thai food. It was awesome because there was about 20 of us there and the night was going exceedingly well until I had an afterdinner mint and broke off a good 40% of one of my teeth. Luckily (?) it was a tooth I've had a HUGE root canal done on, so I wasn't in pain but the break was so sharp that I couldn't talk or swallow without pain because the broken edges kept rubbing my tongue raw ;____; Which resulted in little sleep that night and stumbling to Boots at 8am on Saturday morning to buy a temporary filling kit. Which, o be fair, did the trick until I got to the dentist on Monday morning.

Saturday was house-hunting then catching up on Friday night sleep and then Eurovision at Sci-Fi House. Absolutely hilarious, even if Azerbijan were blatantly not the best entry. Boooooooooo. Then we watched "Zombie Women of Satan" and "Black Sheep" - both awful and hilarious! Lots of boobs and blood and zombie sheep. Excellent night!

[edit] OH GOD HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT NEIL GAIMAN'S "DOCTOR WHO" EPISODE?! My heart! The TARDIS and the Doctor! All the tension! It was amazing and some was quite creepy and it made my heart clench a lot. Then Confidential had Neil talking about it and narrating some of the script and my heart! The noises I made that only whales could hear! ♥

Rest of the weekend passed uneventfully and the week has been strange too. Especially as we're having Mother's Meeting tonight because Em couldn't make it last night. So I'm all a muddle! We were supposed to view another house tonight but they cancelled because the decorators have started painting and all that jazz so it wasn't suitable for visits. Boooooooo.

At least there will be tasty curry noms tonight! And excellent company too, of course.

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams made me a little crotchet-bobble Bat Luck Cat and it is adorable! Also, considering my luck the last few weeks/months it fits perfectly! In the last week I have managed to: break a tooth, swallow temporary filling, strained my eyes, lose my housekeys WHILST I AM IN THE HOUSE, banged into a box that HAS NOT MOVED in 4 months and broke a drawer. Something about May clearly doesn't like me! /o\

The past few weeks have been filled with fucktons of "Inception" and "The Social Network" fanficcs. It's strange, but in all the years I've been in fandoms, these are two that have really, really grabbed me! Probably because the quality of writing in them is so phenomenally high, it's astounding. I also have been saving .gifs like they are going out of fashion. So many excellent .gifs! Hilarious and heart-breaking! My favourite kinds of .gif. Share some of my joy!

Since both Inception and Social Network are more intellectual-type films (well, I haven't seen Social Network, but going on what I've read in news), I'm very relieved to hear their fanbase has a few brain cells to rub together! Too many fandoms we've loved in the past (and present) are too often full of people who don't write with any thoughts in their head other than, "These two people must fuck...whut's 'in-character' and 'appropriate to the setting' mean?" Good fic, slash or otherwise, takes brain cells and character/situation awareness!

OMG YOU SAW THE GAIMAN EPISODE. He needs to write more for Doctor Who Y/Y? I've been wanting to see the TARDIS actually communicate (in a way we understand) for years, so this episode was pretty much fulfilling a dream. Because otherwise, I would've had to write the fic. And I am lazy and only wanting to write for a few fandoms at a time. XD

Does this mean you're watching Eleven now? Did you catch all the other episodes yet? He is truly amazing, brings back memories of the classic Doctors. :D
