As you may or may not have noticed, I've been COMPLETELY FAILING at that Holiday Fic Request thing, and I didn't even get that many requests in the first place. IDK why I thought I could take this on at the same time as Yuletide. :( I will get them done eventually - probably, maybe, hopefully - but don't expect them to be, like, on time. Sorry, I suck.

In other news, X FACTOR FINAL TONIGHT. I don't think I've ever been this excited for an X Factor final, even though a) Cher is obviously going out first, and b) her celebrity duet is going to suck. Fucking Song spoilers for tonight )

There's actually a teeny tiny part of me that's hopeful that she can make it through to Sunday's show. I realise I'm just being delusional, but omg, can you imagine?! Nope, that teeny tiny part of me just died.
botherd: (btvs: omg! :O)
- X Factor )

- Yuletide assignments aren't out yet and it's making me antsy! I really just want to know what I'm writing because whatever I get, I'm going to need to do quite a bit of ~research. I did, however, get my [ profile] girlsgunsfic assignment, and I have lots of options! I just need to decide what to choose. I only signed up right at the last minute because I wasn't sure whether two holiday fic exchanges would be a bit much, but I think it's going to be fun. (Actually, I guess I should write a Dear [ profile] girlsgunsfic Writer letter? Maybe later.)

- I still haven't seen the new Harry Potter film! Clearly I need to get on that.

- WORK TOMORROW. Mondays are the worst.
botherd: (unimpressed)
LOL, The X Factor is such a fucking farce. That entire elimination was scripted, y/y? *eyeroll* THIS SHOW. The thing is, I wouldn't mind the fuckery quite so much if it weren't so fucking PREDICTABLE.

In other news, I've... kind of given up on NaNo. IDK, it feels weird to give up on it after having done it for so long, but I guess I just wasn't feeling it this year. The main problem is that I really like my idea and want to write it well, and I know that if I write it for NaNo I'll just end up hating it and never wanting to look at it again, so it'd just be a waste.

My crazy irrational love for Cher Lloyd = VINDICATED. \o/

Everyone else was rubbish.
botherd: (30 rock: ack!)
- NaNo starts in less than five days and my main character STILL DOESN'T HAVE A NAME. D: Or, well, she has a name, but it's not the perfect name, it's just a name that'll do. And that's basically the same thing as not having a name at all.

- I feel like I've been shirking my duties as a Skins fandomer by not commenting on the US Skins trailer! Mostly I think it's going to be super weird for the first few episodes that are basically remakes of series one, but I'm really looking forward to seeing where it goes once it branches off. And of course I'm mostly interested in Tea, because, well, you already know my feelings on cute lesbians. Also, I love how fandom's already shipping her with Michelle, but I just have one request: please, fandom, don't start calling them something stupid like ~*Teachelle*~. JUST SAY NO TO NAME-SMOOSHES.

- Who's watching Lip Service?? It can't exactly be described as quality TV and yet I'm enjoying the hell out of it, probably because after The L Word the bar for lesbian TV is set so low you can step over it. Anyway, brief thoughts: Frankie is SO HOT but her emo is tedious, I like Cat but she needs to pull herself together, and Tess is my favourite even though sometimes her storylines hit my embarrassment squick hard. And I LOVE Tess and Lou together, even though Lou's awful to her. :/

- I've had 'I Wanna Be Like You' in my head intermittently throughout the week and it's all Katie Fucking Waissel's fault. Why is The X Factor trying so hard to make her happen? She's not going to happen.

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, i.e. [ profile] ems made me write this, my thoughts on The X Factor. Behind the cut, because some people are too sensible to care about this ridiculous show.

botherd: (*facepalm*)
Hi, flist! I feel like it's been ages. Every now and then I feel guilty about not posting, but I don't really have a lot to say. I miss being in fandom! Without fandom I spend far too much mental energy on stupid stuff like The X Factor (WHY DO I OBSESS OVER THIS TERRIBLE SHOW) and no one really wants to hear about My Thoughts On Katie Waissel or whatever.

So, yeah, there's that. Um, what else is going on in my life? Work is just kind of chugging along. ALTHOUGH, we have a couple of volunteers now and it's super annoying having to find work for them to do. One of them in particular seems to be completely useless at research and whenever I ask her to look something up she comes up with something completely irrelevant. If I ask you to look up holiday accommodation, don't give me ideas for days out! If I ask you for non-council sources of funding, don't come back to me with links to local councils in fucking SCOTLAND! WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT'S RELEVANT. IDEK. But I have no idea how to tell her that what's she doing is wrong, so I usually just end up doing the research myself. :/

In other news, I'm in one of those moods where none of my music is quite what I want to listen to. Rec me your favourite albums of the last year or so?

So, who's watching The X Factor this year? I'm hooked yet again, not that that's particularly surprising.

Thoughts on the top 12 )

So, who are your favourites? Do you think the finalists are better than last year's frankly quite dreadful lot?
