botherd: (true blood: jessica is stupidly pretty)
- I had a dream last night where I made out with Jessica from True Blood. It was kind of awkward and not nearly as awesome as it should have been. THANKS, SUBCONSCIOUS. :/

- Remind me why I sign up for fic exchanges? I'm already starting to freak out about my [ profile] femslash10 story. The deadline's still a month away, but all I have is half an outline for a story that feels like it's going to be long.

- I think it's nice that Joe McElderry came out (for those that don't know, he won the last series of The X Factor), but I can't believe how overblown the whole thing was. Most gay male popstars have one ridiculously splashy "I'M GAY" tabloid headline, but Joe had TWO. Have we not moved on from that sort of thing now? It all feels very 1999.

- Zac Efron is ridiculously pretty. I have such a weird platonic crush on him (also on Matt Bomer, oh my God. How is he even real?). You know how straight girls have girlcrushes? Yeah, it's like that.

- The other day I came up with an idea for an original story that I feel just may be my Big Idea That Actually Goes Somewhere. (Of course, I usually think that about my original ideas, and they never are.) It's like a dystopian/sci-fi YA thing and I feel like it actually has a lot of potential, but I actually have no clue how to go about writing a novel outside of the constraints of NaNoWriMo. I don't know if I can stick with a project for that long, especially now I have less time to write.

- I hear the new Sherlock series is good. Is it? I'm not really in a rush to watch yet another story about two straight white dudes, but I might give catch up with it online if I can be bothered.

- Apparently the lesbian that's replacing the Maxxie character in the US Skins is going to have much more to do than Maxxie ever did? I'm pretty sure that, what with this and the lesbian/bi character in Gen 3, BE and JB are cynically cashing in on Naomi and Emily's popularity and are now just throwing lesbians at everything because they know there's an automatic fanbase there. AND IT'S TOTALLY WORKING. Hands up who's more inclined to watch something with lesbians in? (I know I am. I watch Pretty Little Liars, for fuck's sake.)
botherd: (true blood: god hates fangs)
- I've been kind of quiet lately, and I feel like a lot of people on my flist have been too. How are you all? Enjoying your Easter weekend? I don't really celebrate Easter now that I'm apparently Too Old For Easter Eggs, but I'm enjoying my five day weekend. \o/

- The other thing that's awesome about this Easter weekend? NEW DOCTOR WHO TONIGHT! I actually stopped watching New Who about three episodes into Martha's series but a couple of months ago - after the Christmas specials, I think - I marathoned the rest and fell in love all over again. Stephen Moffatt wrote all my favourite episodes from the last few series so I'm excited about him being the new showrunner, and I think Matt Smith's going to be a good Doctor. I'm most intrigued about Amy; I loved Martha and Donna so much, so she has big shoes to fill as far as I'm concerned, but like I said - optimistic!

- I'm kind of sad that Didi got voted off American Idol this week, except not very because she seemed to be singularly determined not to live up to her potential. Oh well, at least Siobhan managed to avoid the bottom three despite her total vocal meltdown. (I still love her, but she needs to knock it out the park this week.) Starting to suspect that fucking Lee DeWyze is going to win the whole thing, though.

- I think it's awesome that Anna Paquin came out as bi, and that she did so in a classy and understated way. Is it wrong that I always become suddenly so much more interested in a celebrity when I find out that they're queer? Because I totally do.
