Certainly not a filk about the Treehouse based on Hotel California by The Eagles

Concrit always loved.
So then why are you clicking on me? )
Okay, so I went back to the Treehouse. To find out what the hell was happening with Iron Liz. Because I am curious like that. I found this. And I am so fucking mad right now, and this is my attempt to get it all out of my system.

Triggers for EVERYTHING. I'm not kidding.

At least I warned for them. )

Well that was worth the wait, wasn't it.



It's kinda hard to concentrate when my brain was screaming "GO AWAY LEWIS" the entire time.

Suede as Insano was ridiculously hot though.
So. As of about two minutes ago, I'm not a Treehousian any more. I've had some fantastically fun times with you all, and it has nothing to do with all of you, but I've had it. The fic's gone downhill (not that I've been writing any so maybe I can't say anything) and I'm not getting the same thrill that I used to seeing notifications in my inbox.

I haven't watched a lot of the reviewers in a long time and if I'm being perfectly honest some of their shit is really starting to piss me off. The favouritism that was always there is worse now, some just aren't entertaining to me anymore and in my opinion a lot of the new talent on the site are huge mistakes that the company has made.

Again, this is just my opinion, and I don't want to seem as though I'm flouncing out, when in truth what I'm aiming for is a quietly closed door and a note of explanation to be discovered in the morning.

But here's the important thing. The friendship that I have with each and every one of you is so very, very important to me and I don't want to lose you, although if you decide that we were only truly friends due to fandom I'll understand and wish you well on your path.

I've seen it. It was good. Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman remain, as ever, two of the most amazing actors I have ever had the pleasure to watch.

I'll try and put up a longer post later. and talk about it a little more, but there's one thing I wanted to say right now, and it is the one thing that annoys me about this movie.

Spoilers for how the movie treats a particular scene. )

As I think most of you know, I’ve been (unsuccessfully) looking for jobs in Sydney for the past couple of months. Work has become nigh untenable and this little unit of mine has too much history attached to it. Money wasn’t too much of an issue until I lost one of my cleaning jobs, which has basically sent me back to where I was just after I broke up with my boyfriend – with the exception that at least I’m up to date with my bills now. Loath to get back in the same position I had a wee meltdown on Friday night, and decided that I’d move to Sydney without a job, to live with my cousin (who’s in a similar position to me, and this was all part of the bigger plan), and just spend every day there searching for something, anything because at least my unit would be paying for itself with rent. I’ve spent a lot of the past weekend starting to pack up my house, and yesterday organised with mum and dad that I’ll briefly move back in with them before heading to Sydney, as any money in is a very good thing, and will only help the money situation.

 

So, tonight I called my cousin to let her know that our plans were moving forward only to hear that her boyfriend has asked her to move in with him. Gentle reader, I flipped. Non-gentle reader, I flipped the fuck out.  This was something that I had finally made a really positive step with, finally took a hold of my damn life to make it work for me and hearing that the one stable part of my plan had gone just sent me over the edge. Calming down, I called my cousin back a couple of hours later to find out that her wonderful boyfriend had even included me in his plans for them moving in together. Soon as I beat the word “gaylord” out of him, he’ll be fairly close to perfect, I think.

 

So, the plan at the moment is that I’ll be putting the unit up for rent next Monday and moving back into mum and dad’s as soon as I get a tenant. I have my last day at work picked out for maximum tax benefit and I’ll be going down to Sydney shortly thereafter. So for the next couple of weeks at least, I’ll be even more absent then what I have been lately. I am the human canker sore however, (thanks [livejournal.com profile] nombrehetomado ) and you won’t be rid of me completely. I adore you all, and have tried to end this three times but it got too sappy, so I’ll just say, that’s all, for now.

Okay, so I may have gone a little mad.


Just a wee bit.


And tumblr is a great big poo-head on occasion.

Just a tad... )
Even though I have been the worst kind of friend lately, can a girl get a little love?

SQUEE!

I bring reasonably high levels of squee.

I have a brother. He has a girlfriend. She is a journalist. She is going to the premiere of Thor and will be on the red carpet. See attached trailer:



She has interviews lined up with some of the main cast, including Kenneth Branagh, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Jaimie Alexander. She has asked me as the resident nerd of the family, if I have any questions for them. And thusly, I turn it over to you, my fellow nerds and geeks and wonderful people. Have you any questions for these fine actors, or am I going to be left to my own devices?

I obviously can’t guarantee that your question will be asked, but I can certainly pass them on, as well as linking the interview when she does it.

In other news, life is what it is and my knees still hurt and are infected and ew.
Oh yeah I can use this for things other than ranting and fics and memes, can't I?

Still haven't had any bites on the job front, and I'm getting a little down because of it. I know I could do all of these jobs on my ear but apparently I'm missing something in my applications. I'm also having so, so many regrets about my life at the moment, looking back I'm eight years out of school this year, and I have so little to show for it in some ways. Yes I own my unit (well, me and the bank), but I have nothing to prove that I have the brains I know are lurking in there somewhere. I don't exactly regret leaving university, but maybe if I'd thought about things a little more and believed in my own self-worth a little more then I'd be in a better position now.

Anyway, enough of this maudlin shit. I'm heading up the coast to see a whole bunch of relatives this weekend, including my cousin who lives in Canada who I haven't seen in ten years. The last time I saw her Elvis was cracking on to me. There's a story there, but that's for another day. So I'll be disappearing for the weekend, but what it also means is that I'll have 12 hours total being driven up to my grandparents so I can do some writing. Which I have been missing so much lately, because with the exception of the Treehouse Hooker!Verse, which ate my brain and would not let go, I haven't had the time nor the inclination. I have about half a dozen kink meme fills sitting there, iPod meme fills and one original idea. Yay, huzzah and etc.

That's about enough from me, but because I feel it needs to be repeated often and loudly: you are some of the most amazing people I've ever had the privilege to meet and don't you all forget it.


I've been bitching about being broke for a while now, and last month I got a chance to do something about it, with adding a few cleaning jobs in to my week, which is as follows. This is as much for me as anything else.

A whole third of my week working )
iPod Fic Meme!
1. Put your mp3 player on shuffle and take the first 25 songs it gives you.
2. Link to the lyrics.
3. Let people choose a song and assign character(s) to write a drabble to.
4. Any titles not striked through are open for choice.
5. People may assign up to 5 fics.
6. Chosen fandoms: TGWTG, any 'verse other than the wish!verse, just because I wouldn't do it justice.
7. After all songs are used, repeat step one.


And yes, I do listen to *some* music that's less than 20 years old, why do you ask?

A/N: Birthday fic for [livejournal.com profile] rachelleneveu inspired by her latest story and a late night Pink Floyd spamathon between [livejournal.com profile] insaneslasher  and myself. Title from Hey You by Pink Floyd, and a line from Smashmouth's All Star.

So. Health care. Many different forms are needed, every country is a little different. What I would like, if you have the time, is to explain to me what health care entails in your country.

Blame this on my Daily Show obsession, seeing Sicko, and a conversation with my parents. )
freakishlytallaustralian: (blackaddershutup)
Love me, love me, say that you love me

Anon holiday meme? Yes please.

Also, Christmas in retail gets worse every stinkin' year. My only New Year's resolution is that I won't be there next year.

Stolen with audacity and cunning from [livejournal.com profile] emeriin, 'cause I can't write at the moment (huge update to come with newsy news and random babblings).

We can all feel a little sucky about our writing ability sometimes. So this is the meme to try and deal with that. Comment here and I'll give you detailed love for as many of your fics as I can. Afterwards, post this in your own LJ and spread the love.
Title: a thousand lost days
Characters: JewWario/Liz, a few other cameos

Summary: Ten drabbles about JewWario in the Hooker!verse
Disclaimer: The people in this story are not mine, the 'verse belongs to [livejournal.com profile] emeriin  and this is pure fiction.
Author's notes: Ten random prompts from a generator. I swear they were, even though a couple were particularly fortuitous. All are exactly 100 words long.

In Australia today there is an initiative to reduce the high numbers of attempted suicides every year. 65,000 people attempt suicide every year in Australia alone, and this organisation is attempting to reduce the number through this campaign.

Summary: The Other Guy lets loose a little history to Chick
Disclaimer: The people in this story are not mine, the 'verse belongs to [livejournal.com profile] emeriin  and this is pure fiction.
Author's notes: Blame this entirely on[livejournal.com profile] emeriin  for inspiring me, [livejournal.com profile] emeriin  for creating such a wonderful playground and [livejournal.com profile] rachelleneveu  for enabling me and finding one of my 53 weaknesses.

He's not escaped the sadness of the world either. )
