I saw this meme on [livejournal.com profile] harmonyangel's journal and it made me smile, so:

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

who is the big spoon/little spoon
what is their favorite non-sexual activity
who uses all the hot water in the morning
what they order from take out
what is the most trivial thing they fight over
who does most of the cleaning
what has a season pass in their DVR
who controls the netflix queue
who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working
who steals the blankets
who leaves their stuff around
who remembers to buy the milk
who remembers anniversaries

Also, I did all my chores today, even the grossest one (litterbox-cleaning day). I'm absurdly proud about it. Now I just need to concentrate on addressing holiday cards...and starting my Yuletide fic...and work stuff...sigh.
mizzmarvel: (happy halloween!)
This week on Dimestore Dames, I look at one of my favorite witchy women, Agatha Harkness

Also, here's a meme nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] entwashian:

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

So, that fic commentary meme going around? I'm in, if anyone's interested. I've done one for Flood Tide and The Allure of Sweatervests, but my other fic can be found here.

Also, today I spent way too much at Jungle Jim's (beware: the website starts playing a song almost immediately) on almost all totally unessential items, like cheese crowns and honey butter and barrel pickles and Walkers crisps, then celebrated by coming home and buying expensive tea online*. It's nice to be in a situation where I actually make enough money to spend some, but maybe I need to have my debit card taken away for a little while.

* Though, in my defense (?), I do drink like four cups of tea a day at this point, so tea is something I usually need. But not in my defense, I already have like nine varieties of tea bags/loose tea/tea concentrate. And I asked the open post on Jezebel tonight for recommendations, so I have a million new ones I want to try. Um. At least I haven't bought a Threadless shirt in a while?

Stole this from [livejournal.com profile] madri:

Favorite episode/scene
Unpopular opinion

To console myself over my failed rice experiment, I made pancakes tonight. They came out delicious, fluffy and golden brown. That'll show you, rice.

With any luck, by the end of the night I'll have written my last hair magazine story EVER. \o/ And I say 'with any luck' because I think I might actually be a little sick, due to major tummy problems, and I pretty much just want to go to sleep right now. This might not sound any different than usual, but I assure you, it is.

Moving on. I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] traincat:

1.) Give me a pairing.
2.) Give me an AU setting.
3.) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

Completely stolen from [livejournal.com profile] caiusmajor:

Give me a character name (and an 'verse*, if relevant) and I'll write you a drabble about how they lost their virginity**.

*Which can be a canon 'verse, an AU I've written, or something you made up on the spot but think I might actually have something to say about.

**For many possible values of 'virginity,' depending on the character, situation, or my whim.

It also might be just me rambling rather than an actual drabble. Just fair warning.

Today on Dimestore Dames, I take a look at one of the younger set: Valeria Richards.

And totally inappropriately, here's a meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory:

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

Okay, let's do this now! Stolen from one of several posts on my flist:

Analogous to library-fine-amnesty day or tax-amnesty day, this is the Things You Should Probably Know About Me But Forgot amnesty meme. Or alternatively, Things You Should Probably Know About Me But Never Knew. If there are things you'd feel embarrassed asking me to my face the next time you see me, or issues you've been careful not to raise because you didn't know my position on them or relationship to them, because it seems like something everyone else knows by now, just ask about it as a comment to this thread, and I'll answer it. Since it's the amnesty thread there will be zero guilt or embarrassment involved, even if it's something I might normally give you a hard time about not knowing.

In addition, if it is actually a Thing You Really Shouldn't Know About Me, I will not give you a hard time about thinking you should. I'll keep this thread unlocked unless conversations necessitate some kind of security settings.

Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] piscaria:

Pick a pairing from any fandom in which I've written (please also make sure I write said pairing!) and come up with a location and/or situation. From this, I will write you between 50 and 250 words about the kiss and/or almighty snog-fest that happened in that context.

Just a reminder of some of the fandoms I can do: BSC, Disney (mainly Duckverse), Big Time Rush, Newsies, Marvel, DC, Harry Potter. There are surely plenty of others I'm forgetting.

I totally stole this from [livejournal.com profile] madri and had entirely too much fun doing it.

Go to wikipedia and hit random. The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
Go to quotationspage.com and hit random. The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your album.
Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
Use photoshop or similar (picnik.com is a free online photo editor) to put it all together.

you wish you had my album )

Today I packed five seven boxes (including most of my books), picked up some clothes that had been shipped to a store, dropped off some clothes for charity, made an appointment for Sorsha to get groomed, and cooked dinner on the stove, not in the microwave, as is my usual MO.

Excellent work, me. Excellent indeed.

Also, I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] caia_comica:

Pick a character I've written/am likely to know about and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing/imagining that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

[livejournal.com profile] queenitsy did the "talk about five of your icons" meme and chose these ones for me. I'd be happy to choose some for you, if you wish, or otherwise you can just marvel at the deep thought behind mine.

1. There used to be this comic book called My Monkey's Name is Jennifer, maybe when I was a senior in high school or so. I don't know why I picked it up, since I'm usually superhero-only, but I did and I loved it. Jennifer, by the way, is neither a monkey nor a she -- he's a castrated male ape, and he's very angry most of the time. The comic mostly centered around him and his little girl owner inadvertently getting into danger and Jennifer's violent thoughts (never toward the girl, though)...such as "i could tear out your eyes." It was hilarious, take my word for it. Needless to say, I use this icon when I'm furious or even just grumpy.

Side note: my first blog was named "My Blog's Name is Jennifer" in homage to the comic, and the artist/writer commented on it that he was glad I liked the comic. I was equal parts thrilled and horrified. And then, in a later issue, he illustrated part of an email I sent him and I swooned with geeky ecstasy. Since then, I've met him a few times at conventions, and I have a huge, shameless crush on him. I've even taken a vodka shot with him.

2. This is my very favorite The Far Side panel. I don't know, I just find it really bittersweet and moving. I remember reading a Gary Larson quote where he describes a poster made from this panel, and all the other penguins were shaded blue or something, and the one singing was yellow, thus totally missing the message.

Anyway, I tend to use it when I'm thinking inward or just acting bizarre. The poor quality of the image is because I scanned it from my college Sociology textbook. Good thing I got some use out of that class!

3. This is a shot from Starter for Ten, which I saw with [livejournal.com profile] the_evident and [livejournal.com profile] entwashian when it came out. I really, really liked it, but it was released in the U.S. around the time of The Last King of Scotland, so it was the James McAvoy movie that no one cared about that year.

The movie's about trivia game shows and struggling with one's class identity and blah blah, whatever, it doesn't matter. This is pretty much just my general sleep/tired icon, and occasionally one where I'm grumpy; these states tend to go hand-in-hand with me anyway. Fun fact: when I first saw the movie, I initially interpreted this gesture as a sarcastic peace sign. But apparently this is a not-nice gesture in the UK? I am smart!

4. Aqualad is by far my favorite of the original Teen Titans. I mean, he's just so woobie! And he has curly hair and purple eyes and he's afraid of fish! Hence his distressed gesture here. I also just love Tiny Titans art and find his design to be particularly adorbs. Plus, like a bumblebee, I'm attracted to bright colors, so of course I had to make this icon mine.

I use this one when I'm worried, so it gets a lot of showtime.

5. I just added this one the other day -- it's Kristy from the Baby-sitters Club TV show. Her WHAT THE FUDGE face has a tinge of moral outrage that makes me laugh forever. Also, weirdly enough, despite my 15-year obsession with the BSC, I've only seen a few episodes of this show. We didn't have the Disney channel when I was younger, and by the time we did get it, they only re-aired it occasionally. It's best known for World's Tallest Mary Anne, the Incredible Bostonian Dawn Schafer, and Little Pete as Jackie Rodowsky.

I have spent my day hacking up my lungs and mentally preparing myself for the two errands I have to run. Would you please do me the honor of giving me some affection at the Holiday Love Meme?

If my cat could write and had any sense of caring about me, this is what she would post:

Dear taller one,

I like how you put food in my bowl sometimes, especially the wet kind, and how you let me rip up your sheets with a resigned sigh. The way you just let me shove you over and take up half the bed is really refreshing; you're clearly a fast learner. I don't like it when you put on socks and leave, but you always come back, sometimes with more food for me. Please stop touching the white spot on my belly. Hey, is that a bird?

My holiday weekend started off early, when I was allowed to leave at 2 PM. I raced out the door, hightailed it to Brooklyn, and spent way too much money at DSW in celebration. I bought a new purse and snow boots. Which is funny because I specifically told myself I wasn't getting a whitish purse, which it is, and would not be looking at any shoes at all, which obviously did not happen. Way to go, me.

But the purse fits so perfectly on my shoulder! My fellow women, you know how important this is, amirite? And the shoes are so cuddly warm. And I had a $10-off coupon! Deals are my greatest weakness. Also, french fries.

Now, would you please indulge me?

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] caia_comica:

1. Comment in this post with a pairing, a character, or theory.
2. I shall write you back a paragraph explaining what I think about it (good, bad, indifferent) and why.
3. Repost in your own journal if you want.
mizzmarvel: (madrox: scholars - iconzicons)
[livejournal.com profile] thuri asked me to explain three interests and icons of mine. I apologize in advance.

geppettophilia - I can't remember the exact conversation [livejournal.com profile] the_evident and I were having, but at some point, one day, one of us came up with the term "geppettophile" to describe someone. Or something. I'm a little hazy on the details. In any case, it was HILARIOUS, so I added it to my interests. Good story, huh?

ma hunkel's frying pan of fury - Ma Hunkel is a Golden Age comic character, once obscure, now semi-obscure. She was a beefy housewife who got tired of the crime in her neighborhood and became the Red Tornado, doling out justice in red longjohns and a saucepan on her head in lieu of mask. Believe it or not, she did not join the pantheon of iconic comic heroes, but recently, she came back to comics as a pseudo-Grandma to the Justice Society. She's still as awesome as ever, and will still occasionally threaten someone with violence via frying pan. She actually reminds me of one of my own grandmothers.

max/louie - One day, [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory was all, "Guess what, world? I've decided that Louie Duck is gay, and moreover, he should get together with Max Goof." And being that I'm probably hellbound already, I embraced the pairing. I was pretty depressed at the time, and continued to be until...well, now, and it was good for me to have a pairing that was nearly angst-free. As [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory pointed out, this is not a pairing that is going to experience parental rejection, adultery, or death. It's just light and funny and happy.

- Here's a tidbit of breaking news - I love Namor. He thinks he's better than everyone, has a penchant for throwing land-walking scum off buildings, and usually is wearing a skimpy speedo. PERFECT! I really liked the most recent Namor series, so I used a cover scan to make this icon. I tend to use it for happier posts, or any that are beach-themed.

- I can't remember what made me decide to make this icon, but it was one of the first I made after getting my Mac. And yet, I made this on a PC at work, during a brief period of being able to use the Internet. I have the feeling that I wasn't in a great mood that day. I grabbed the image from Getty Images, and I tend to use it when I'm ill or having some sort of meltdown.

- One very special night, [livejournal.com profile] entwashian and I got together for the express purpose of watching Wedding Wars, in which John Stamos and Sean Maher are gay and Eric Dane is not gay. Despite all that, it was pretty terrible, though fun as heck. I have a love for all things Stamos, and after I was compelled to watch Firefly, I fell hard for Simon Tam. Thus, it was time to steal this icon, which was made by [livejournal.com profile] entwashian, much to the delight of the masses.

If anyone wants, I'll pick out three and three for you, too!
