Obsession is a *good* thing!

Fucking Grrrr!

My brand new less than one month old lappy is broken already and has to go in for repair.

For absolutely no reason at all my keyboard on it was literally typing fine one moment and then not the next. The o key acts like 'home', the l key acts like 'page down', the fullstop acts like 'end' etc. It's not a hotkey issue. I've restarted, system restored etc etc and it's still happening.

Rang up the peeps, they put me through to Toshiba, they want me to do a factory reset and if that doesn't fix the issue, send it away for repairs. So FUCK knows how long that will take.

So I guess what I'm saying is I'm gonna be gone for a while. Who knows how long... but I'll see you on the other side.

(and if you look at how many o, l's and fullstops in this post, you'll understand when i tell you it took me over 20 mins to write just that. FUCKING GRRRR)

Damn but I love this film.
Gen - icon loading
One of the best verbal masterpieces I've ever heard, and in a film that is sooooo not my usual style at all. It's *dark*, more than a little strange, not just a little disturbing and very very English. (Did I mention that its *DARK*???)

(from V for Vendetta... V's opening speech to Evey)

Evey: Who are you?
V. : Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey: Well I can see that.
V. : Of course you can, I’m not questioning your powers of observation, I’m merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
Evey: Oh, right.
V. : But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.

Evey: Are you like a crazy person?
V. : I’m quite sure they will say so.

I need a V icon. Badly.

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

I know it's been a while, but I'm back!

New laptop is up and running and I'm back baby!

Far too much has happened to tell it all since I've been away, but here's what happened yesterday.

It was my birthday, which was awesome and celebrated in the usual Allen style of jelly/jello, cake, icecream and pizza and i got awesome pressies. My family kick ass.

But then, my fandom kicked utter ass and with thanks to two especially awesome friends, I got tweeted bday messages from Andrew Marlowe, Terri Miller, Laurie Zaks, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Tamala Jones and Victor Webster... cast and crew from my show, Castle. I was and am *STILL* snoopy dancing about it!!!

*THEN* i got an email saying my design for the Poster competition over at Castle-Fans had only bloody WON!!!!

I'll be posting that design up as a wallpaper on jackscabin in a few days, btw.

Can we say, day of utter awesome????

Yeah, its that time again, when I need to make my LJ a little more manageable.

If I cut you, its purely because we've grown apart. Apologies.

Hello? (listens to the echo)
Castle - holy shit
Ok, so I've totally been neglecting LJ of late. My very bad. Twitter is just so much easier adn appeals to the lazy-ass in me. So Flist, my apologies and i promise to try and do much better with the LJ thing from now on.

I promise there'll be a 'me' post, but right now, I'm a flailing, sobby mess of fangirl OMG at last night's Castle finale.

Did ya see it? If you didn't, holy crap people wtf are you watching!!!

Also - Brad Whitford is on The Mentalist for the Season 3 finale. Watch that too!

Grrrr @email!
Brad - curse
FYI: if any of you get an email from me on the old lindsaymallen@yahoo.com email address, please delete it right away.

even though I deleted all contacts from that account and stopped using it, it still seems to be screwed as i've just had several peeps tell me they've got a spam/junk email from there.

I'm sorry to all and I'm actually gonna go delete the account properly, rather than just removing all contact addresses.

I stress, current email addy is totally fine, its just the lindsaymallen@yahoo.com one that's the issue.

That sound you hear?

Nathan Fillion Reads to KidsCollapse )

In other news. Blah. That is all.

V for Vendetta.
Castle - holy shit
I just watched this film for the first time. Not really expecting much from it as it is SOOOO not the kind of film I usually like. But I watched it cause a very good friend of mine loves it and I trust her judgement. (and it was on TV tonight when nothing else was on).

At first I didn't really get it and was kinda watching it in that way where you can't seem to take your eyes off something strange and a little bit insane? And then all of a sudden at one point in the film it clicked for me. And from then on, it blew me away with how fucking GOOD it was. Really.

The main character wears a mask all the way through and is never ever 'unmasked' - for a reason that works on SOOOO many levels it will give me writers cramp to list them all - and yet you get every moment of emotion from him without so much as seeing a facial twitch. THAT stunned me. It's dark, and when I say dark I MEAN dark, it's political and not just a little bit insane, but holy shit i thought it was bloody fantastic.

I am about 8 years late to the party on this, but I don't care. The cool kids arrive late. *nods*

In other less weird and dark news, 10 year old was OFFICIALLY 10 yesterday. The usual Allen-haus festivities ensued and in place of a bday cake there was the requested BROWNIESOFAWESOME (she named them that) so I won points. I won more points for making said brownies into a pyramid (her current intellectual obsession) and also for buying her a talking moving bells and whistles TARDIS (her current playtime obsession) which I know will make several of my flist happy. There is a WHO fangirl in the house - and yes, she does like Ten best. :D

But really and truly, HOLY SHIT where has that decade gone???? It's insane! They all need to just stop growing up now.

Best Tweet Ever
Castle - punk'd BAM!
In reaction to the the reaction to last nights episode of Castle:

Andrew W. Marlowe: I'm heart, not Hart.
22 minutes ago

Best. Tweet. Ever.

(I have to admit to not liking the last 60 seconds, but I understand them)

Edit: This TVOvermind review sums up my pov perfectly. Although I liked the episode in general more than they seemed to.

Urgh, they need to stop getting older!
Gen - boo's hand
The boy is a BIG 5!!! today... I mean come on. This whole 'growing up' thing is getting silly now. They need to stop, at say 4... none of this 5, 7 or 10 year old crap. No. They stop at 4. I've decided.

However, since the laws of both nature and the universe don't happen to agree with me, the boy is now officially 5. And wow, does he think he's all that. His eldest sister (who turns 10 in a couple weeks, argh!) just rolled her eyes at him and said 'yeah, but you're still a baby' to which he responded by smacking her about the head with the school bag that was in his hand at the time. It's been fun this morning, let me tell you.

We're currently prepping for an invasion of 15-20 four and five year olds, a couple of 7 year olds and a couple of 9-10 year olds this afternoon. I sense headache pills in my future. Lots of headache pills.

Speaking of, I need to go make the jelly.

Also? Castle last night? DUDE!!! And the Canadian Promo for next week? DUUUUUUUUUUUDE!!!! OMG. (what, you thought I'd write an entire post and NOT fangirl? Ha. Double ha!)

One Word Meme
Gen - boo's hand
Seen all over my flist:

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal so I can leave a word about you.,/i>

Fandom Fail.
Castle - blue eye
Just to let you all know, from now on, any manip or graphic I make, will have a big ugly assed watermark all over it because apparently people in the Castle fandom don't seem to understand the concept of plagarising applies to graphics as well as fic.

I really am so sad about this. I make graphics and manips to share and I never once had to worry about people stealing my stuff before, but its happening waaaaaaaay too often now for me to do nothing about it. I'm not talking about just once or twice...

Normally I place an unobtrusive name tag in the bottom corner of the image, so that it doesn't take away from the graphic itself, but that's going to have to change now, because its too easy for people to just remove that nametag. So, over the next few days, anything I've previously posted sans water-mark will be removed and a watermarked version put in its place. Everything I make in future will only be posted with a big ugly-assed watermark all over it.

I'm sorry to you all, I hate having to do this, but I spend a long time on these and to have them stolen out from under me just makes me so sad.
