Oh, I'm failing with a capital FAIL. XD Suffice it to say, even if I manage to crank something out with respect to [livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge, I'll be begging them not to crosspost it till I've had time to hit it with big knobbly sticks. ^^' It feels so much longer than it is, too! Out of curiosity, I measured a fic someone posted up today, and it was about as long as what I have now. Admittedly mine isn't finished yet, but still. These things always feel so epic, then I realise they're, like, workmanlike to most people. *dies*

Also, I have posted some Christmas things, but by no means all. Expect them sometime in the New Year, everyone else! ^^;; (Of course, my closest friends will probably get them last of all, cos I spend ages trying to put together suitable parcels. I thought I had a head start this year, but I just lulled myself into a false sense of security! XD)

Bon voyage to [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground and [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio!! You're going to have the greatest time ever, and I so wish I was coming too! :D

More unpopular opinions! :D This is quite fun!

Speaking of Rikkai, though, they seem to be in fashion again recently! Some nicely entertaining little ficlets doing the rounds on the comms. Hope it keeps up!

Made a little more progress on my [livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge, but I still have to remember to alter the whole timeline to fit in one event that I just didn't want to lose. ^^'

Did some Christmas shopping and everything yesterday (ie, I went to the fancy chocolate shop and bought quite a few not-necessarily specific goodies)! :D Bought cards, so if anyone would like to exchange them with me this year and hasn't already left me their address, please drop it here! :)

Now if you'll excuse me, I have another ep of Mukodono to watch. It's not *the* greatest thing ever, but... Nagase! (I even dl'ed an Ayumi Hamasaki song to listen to earlier, never having heard any of her stuff before and knowing I wouldn't especially like it, just cos she's Nagase's girlfriend. XD The song wasn't actually too bad! o.o Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] postingwhore! :D)

I hate when someone whose fic you really like turns out to be a bit of a wanker, really. >:E Ruins the whole experience! It's like when you find out someone who writes really good fic breaks up an OTP of yours - always makes me a little sad...

Admitted defeat on [livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge for the time being and begged for some extra time. I simultaneously abandoned this stupid sex scene that's been dragging me down for too long - again, for the time being. I'll be back, boys~! When I've, you know, written the rest of the story.

I did half of each of the two things I meant to do this evening - does that count like completing a whole one? ^^'

Only two more days till [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground is here! :D Yay!

My head hurts, and I've wasted a good two hours this evening just out of sheer workshyness. ^^;; I did watch up to ep 4 of Mukodono 2003, though - shame there doesn't seem to be any more available subbed, cos I was kind of getting into it. For the record, it has Nagase as another idiot, but this time he's also an incredibly popular and hot idol, who's a huge bouncy dork in real life. Then he meets a sweet girl and marries her (all by the end of ep 1!), and the following eps involve him trying to get her family to accept him. It's quite sweet, really, and Nagase is indeed very hot as Sakuraba Yuichirou, but the whole set-up was a bit rushed (ep 2 began with them waking up and him going "Oh! We're married now!"). It seems to be some kind of redux of the original Mukodono, which also starred Nagase as Sakuraba Yuichirou, the stupid idol who married into a girl's family etc etc. I've only seen the first ep of that, and I have to say I do prefer the 2003 one, on available evidence (put it this way: piles are never a good plot device *shudder*). Will probably end up dl'ing more of it, though, for obvious reasons. *cough*

I should've had a shower in the time I was bored in this evening! Any extra time in bed in the mornings these days is invaluable.

So, MP3 players - I want to get myself a real one, but don't know where to start. I don't really want to pay a fortune, obviously, but I dunno, gadgets like video and stuff would probably be pretty cute. What are people's experiences? What's good? Advice please!

Note to self: read those Honey/Mori fics when you get home tonight. Don't often read in Ouran fandom (only the twincest :9) but I'd like to see some nice stuff with those two. ^_^

[livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge fic is due in 2 weeks, oh lord! I've got the path to the end roughly planned out, but a) the getting there is the hard part and b) I have a huge chunk to fill in at the beginning. Ugh. I've been feeling so social lately too (haha, aren't you all glad?), and just like going out and doing things, so I've not had the inclination to sit down and just write. Yes, I know I still have that app to do. I'll get round to it...! When I'm done with y_c, though, I totally want to do some kind of low-pressure challenge for My Boss My Hero, though. Might turn out to be impossible, but drama fandoms need more love. *loves accordingly* I wish I could find more backstage stories from when they were filming it, because... well, just because. ;D

Also once more realising that my chosen path (you know, that publishing thing! Remember?) probably isn't going to work out for me, largely for reasons beyond my control this time. Lalala, head in sand time - pretend this isn't happening... It's not even like I really mind doing what I am now - the work's fine, and part of me likes the idea of not being too tied down, so I can just gallivant off again whenever I want; the fact that I've got no skills or personal qualities useful for professional employment doesn't quite make me feel as full of despair as it used to, but it's still a sort of empty life, doing admin and that forever. ...Actually, yes it does fill me with the same amount of gloom, but like I say, I now have the thought that I can go off and do stuff if I want to fall back on. Even if that then makes me wonder about whether I, as a person, am even capable of getting the best out of what I do. I just fail as a human being, really, is my main point, as I have been on about at length previously (*snore*); but I'm trying to live with it. XD

Newflash! New Gaiden scans over at [livejournal.com profile] radiofreebanri. It's gonna be a long three months till the next chapter... x_o

Also, can I ask a dumb question about [livejournal.com profile] yaoi_challenge? Can anyone claim a request, even if you've not made one yourself? Cos I've seen one I'm really very interested in writing, but I don't necessarily have anything I want to suggest. Unless I submit one of my [livejournal.com profile] top_cagnotte requests! ^^'

[Promised edit] Found this anime friending meme through [livejournal.com profile] hyujin. Go on, make a new friend! :D My little ad-thingy is here. ^_^
