Academic degrees apparently do not equate intelligence.

Dear Dr. Ablow,

I'm just an undergrad psych major and even I know that what you said is nonsense (and that's putting it mildly). Pink toenails will not make little boys transgendered or gay, or cause enough mental anguish to require therapy. If anything is going to cause psychological distress, it's the hostile, narrow-minded, negative behavior of people like you.

Sincerely,

Me

PS: How the hell did you get your degree?

My subconscious. It lacks sense.

I had the weirdest dream last night. Neil Gaiman was my English teacher (which was strange because I haven't taken an English class in about two years and I'm certainly not taking one this semester). Then I ended up in his apartment because I had a question about the assignment (it was a recycling project where we had to actually recycle stuff and go green; what the hell?) and for some reason my little brother was with me. I met Gaiman's roommate which turned out to be Terry Pratchett (I don't even know, okay?).

Neil Gaiman was all "let's get ice-cream!" and Terry Pratchett was all "excellent idea!" so Gaiman donned a pair of rollerskates and my brother donned a pair of rollerblades. The two of them skated ahead while me and Pratchett walked. We ended up at, I kid you not, "Eames' Ice-Cream Shoppe." Seriously, that's what the sign said; Eames' name was in a much larger font than the rest of the title, and it was all pink and curlicue. Eames was unfortunately missing, but I was ecstatic to be at his shop nonetheless.

Pratchett ordered first, but I didn't quite hear what sort of ice-cream he chose. My brother ordered razzleberry icecream--is that even a flavor? I've no idea, I've never heard of it before. But it had coconut flakes and I <3 coconut; also, I coerced my brother into letting me taste his and, although I can't describe how it tastes, it was good. So I ended up ordering razzleberry with a scoop of butterscotch--which makes no sense at all because I'm pretty sure I've never even had butterscotch anything before. The ice-cream lady turned to Gaiman and was all "are you sure you want butterscotch mixed with razzleberry?" which sort of ticked me off because, hello, I was right there and I can order my own darn ice-cream, thank you very much. Gaiman was awesome though and simply said, "I believe that's what she ordered and I think she knows what she wants best."

As she started mixing the coconut flakes into my ice-cream, my alarm went off and I woke up.

I've decided I need a PASIV, if only to ruthlessly question my subconscious about these sort of dreams. (And, perhaps, to see if my projections manifest themselves as fictional characters as I suspect they would. Hey, I'm not going to complain if I have Sheppard and Castiel walking around in my mind).

"Change of Plan"

I am currently watching the movie "Change of Plan" featuring Joe Flannigan. His character, who was an Air Force pilot turned aeronautical engineer who teaches at an engineering school , and his singer-wife inherit four kids from the wife's dead best friend. Except that neither know the first thing about taking care of kids because they're both very career oriented individuals. The oldest kid is an anglo-saxon teen girl, the youngest is a little Korean (I think) girl. They have a Guatemalan brother (also teen) and an African brother (elementary age). So you have a group of kids in a medley of ages, sizes, and colors. I've already teared up once and it's not even halfway through the film.

Also, I'm mentally replacing the wife with McKay, and I'm convinced that Flannigan's character is actually Sheppard. This film is like a well written Stargate Atlantis AU kid!fic. It makes me happy inside.

Moral Dilemma

I used to have this thing. I refused to read RPF (real-person fiction). Honestly, I found the idea of using actual people, instead of the characters they play, to be rather invasive. I couldn't get over the fact that these people exist and writers put them in smutty situations (not always, obviously, but still). And I'd get hung up on that. Personally, I'd feel rather creeped out to find a fanfic written about me, specifically. So, I decided I would never read RPF.

And then Inception came along and opened my eyes to the wonders of Arthur/Eames slash. Then it made me fixate on JGL's dimples and T-Hard's lips. And then I started thinking of JGL + T-Hard.

And now I've crash-landed into the world of RPS (real person slash) starring JGL and T-Hard (who is married, ohmygod, what am I doing?). I feel like such a terrible person but my mind goes "Woah, HOT" at the thought of them together in *ahem* compromising situations.

I'm torn and distraught at my apparent weakness. How am I to cope with the guilt?

Oh, hey, look, more JGL/THard RPS fic! *distract distract distract*

(Distraction is a good coping method, right?)

Indulging my Shallow Self

I just finished watching season one of White Collar. While I normally watch shows based on how much it sparks my thinky-neurons or how action-packed it is, this show has become my guilty pleasure. I spend most of my time just admiring Caffrey in his super-sexy suit-and-hat ensemble. My brain just goes CAFFREY YOU GORGEOUS MAN YOU, on a loop. Despite his hotness, Caffrey's sappiness is annoying. His romantic streak is aggravating (and slightly endearing, in that "oh, you pathetic idiot" sort of way). I do my best to ignore it, and repress the urge to smack him silly with his pretty hat.

Anyway.

I originally started watching it because I heard people talk about how mindblowingly attractive one Neal Caffrey was (such a charming con man!) and how he was slashed with Peter Burke who pretty much owned Caffrey. On the one hand, I can now fully appreciate Caffrey's ridiculously handsome self. On the other hand, I cannot bring myself to slash him with Peter because he's happily married to his wickedly awesome wife, Elizabeth Burke, whom I love and adore. I'm big on fidelity and commitment so the idea of taking Peter away from his wife and placing him with Caffrey gives me an icky twisted feeling in my gut.
So I've found a show that I don't slash (at least not yet; there hasn't been another recurring male character I want Caffrey with).

Also, I need to say how upset I am that they introduced Diana, a black lesbian, in the first episode and then promptly get rid of her for the following episodes until the last one. She was so cool! Very collected and smirky. I have a terrible feeling that they got rid of her to replace her with a female character Caffrey can flirt with; how unfair is that? I just hope I see more of her in the second season (the first episode of which I'm in the process of streaming as I type this).

So, Elizabeth and Diana are awesome female characters (I'm also liking Caffrey's landlady--June, I think). On the other hand, I do not approve of Kate and that one fence-girl whose name I can't recall. The first just uses Caffrey (and that's like kicking a puppy) and the latter is too desperate for Caffrey (it's kind of pathetic).

Lastly, MOZZIE. What can one possibly say about Mozzie? His neurosis is endearing; especially when he uses it to show he cares (giving Caffrey advice, for one). I WANT HIM TO BE MY FRIEND.

My conscience is sensitive.

Sometimes, I really don't like my conscience. Yeah, it helps me be a lawful citizen and generally a good person. But then there's moments where it'll make me feel unreasonably guilty. Today is a good example.

I'm leaving my class after finishing a test (which I hopefully passed *crosses fingers*) and there on the corner of the street is an Old Bible Guy. You know the type: white, white haired/balding, kind of wrinkly, in a fussy suit (not the snazzy kind that guys like ~Arthur~ look really good). There's a box beside him filled with miniature, green, new testament bibles.

Now, I volunteer at my local Catholic church for RE (religious education). I was raised a Catholic but I'm not a big fan of religion (or large, single-minded groups in general). I'm not the most faithful, pious person around, needless to say, so I wouldn't know anything about the Bible. I'm really not interested in learning or reading the Bible, miniature or not.

Unfortunately, I had no way of avoiding the friendly Old Bible Guy. But I really didn't want that bible he was oh so eager to offer. So I had an idea. I had my headphones on! I could walk right by this guy while fiddling with my Ipod (because I still hadn't picked any album to listen to yet) and pretend to not hear him! That way I wouldn't have to get yet another mini-bible that I would only toss into a random place never to be seen or heard from again.

So that's what I did.

Half a block away from the Old Bible Guy, my conscience wallops me with a 50 pound bag of guilt. What kind of terrible person am I to ignore a kindly man who only wants to possibly convert me and save my soul? He was doing it out of the kindness of his heart (or probably a sense of moral obligation) and I just pretended he didn't even exist. I felt like scum.

But there seems to be some sort of Old Bible Guy Convention in town because a couple blocks later, Old Bible Guy 2.0 was standing at a street corner!!

I almost tripped myself, I ran to him so fast. I treated him with a bright smile and a cheery "good morning" and why yes, I would love to have a mini green bible thank you so very much. Have a nice day Old Bible Guy 2.0!

*headdesk*

What the hell am I supposed to do with my pocket-New Testament now?!

.zip files remind me of Inception

Hahahahaha. I'm downloading a .zip file of a Arthur/Eames fanmix and I was prompted to retrieve the file. There was little button labeled "extract." For a moment, I was an Extractor. :D

On another note, I bought my first pair of suspenders today. They have the four card suits all over. I <3 them. I think I'm going to build a whole collection of suspenders. I saw another pair that had multi-colored skulls. I'll probably get those next!

JGLJGLJGLJGLJGLJGLJGL



I have never before watched "That 70's Show" because, honestly, it looks kind of stupid and I'm more into science fiction TV, anyway (if we're in the past, where's the TARDIS?) Then I found this clip. JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT, WHY ARE YOU SO DAMN CUTE?? That bit at 2:09, where he's all smiley and says "you're so cute" needs to be made into an icon, like yesterday. WANTWANTWANT. Stupid, redhead boy having JGL kiss him...lucky bastard.

Seriously, when I went to watch Inception the first time, I had no idea it would introduce me to a new epic fan-crush. I must now go e-stalk him :)

ETA: Now that I think about it, it probably has already been made into an icon. I just gotta go find it.

Inception, Take Three.

So that's why the fandom thinks Eames can't spell!! I totally missed that little bit of interaction between Eames and Cobb when Eames was turning in his poker chips in Mombasa. I am much less confused now. Also, is it just me, or did it seem as though Eames sneaked a poker chip out of the pile to keep for himself? That would explain everyone thinking his totem's a poker chip.

ZERO-GRAVITY ARTHUR WILL NEVER NOT BE AWESOME. He's so smaaaaart, creating a sense of gravity in the elevator to produce a falling sensation. Also, he smiles while asleeeeep! I mean, it wasn't even a pleasant dream what with the zero-gravity fight...

Okay, we never actually find out what number Arthur's loaded die falls on. Most of the fics I've read seem to agree that it's 3 but every now and then I'll see a 5 or a 6 WHICH THEN THROWS ME OFF COMPLETELY. Can we get a consensus on which number is Arthur's "it's not a dream!" number? I vote for 3.

...

NO, ARIADNE, I WILL NOT SHIP YOU WITH ANYONE BECAUSE YOU ARE TOO CUTE FOR WORDS; EVERYBODY HAS PROTECTIVE BROTHERLY/FATHERLY TENDER FEELINGS FOR YOU INSTEAD. Seriously, I get kind of creeped out when she's shipped with Cobb or Eames or Arthur, even. I sort of want there to be epic team!love between them, because team!love makes me all happy inside. (Hello? Look how well it worked out for Team Sheppard).

Also, I'm developing an affinity for pining!Eames, moreso than pining!Arthur; although I wouldn't say no to either of them. But I especially like them from another's point of view. I've seen some very good Ariadne-POVs for them. However, I'd like to see a Yusuf-POV because I think he'd have a skewed, amusing opinion on the whole matter; that and Yusuf doesn't get nearly as much fandom love as the rest of them do. On that note, I really, really approve of the fandom love for Ariadne, seeing as most of the fandoms I've been watching tend to tear apart any female character that gets near the male characters. So, thank you, Inception-fandom, thank you so very much because Ariadne's much too cute to hate anyway.

(I wonder if I can sneak in a fourth viewing...)

Inception, Viewing 2.


Rewatched Inception. Someone pointed out that, hey, we don't actually get to see Arthur in suspenders. Well, guess what? You do actually catch a glimpse of his suspenders during the anti-gravity fight scene. Arthur is shoving off Subconscious Security Guy and his waist coat bunches up enough to see a glimpse of what seems to be Y-backed suspenders. So there.

(Also, Arthur in a waistcoat, you guys, what more can you want?)

I now know that the Architect is named Ariadne and the Forger is named Eames. I am totally shipping Eames/Arthur. I see a trend in my shipping; whenever there's banter between a couple of male characters, I tend to ship them. Sheppard/Mckay would be a prime example of this. I <3 banter. Besides, Eames is such a tease with everyone anyway. He just looks better with Arthur at his side. To be honest, I didn't notice any slashy undertones between Eames and Arthur during the first viewing because I was so focused on trying to understand the plot. Throughout this second viewing, I was all "OHMYGOD, how did I miss that slash?!"

And I don't wish to ship Ariadne with anyone because she is much too cute and smart for any of the available guys (Cobb is too preoccupied with his dead, crazy French wife while Eames and Arthur are slashed; so that leaves Saito {too old}, the Chemist guy {not cool enough} and Fischer Jr. {hello, daddy issues}, and that other old guy that was with Fischer {also too old AND ugly}.) I tend to be a bit more protective of any cool female characters--there are so few of them around, after all--and don't easily hand them off to any particular ship. And when I finally do find someone to ship them with, the writers decide to not make it canon (Ronon/Teyla, anyone?). It rather annoys me.

In conclusion: Arthur! And can I get a third viewing, plz?

PS: I would totally be a Pointman. I love information-gathering. ARTHUR AND I CAN GO TO POINTMAN SCHOOL TOGETHER. :D

NEW FANDOM, YOU GUYS, NEW FANDOM


Ladies and gentleman of the internet:

I have found a new fandom and its name is INCEPTION.

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN ILUSM. YOUR BRAIN. I WANTS IT.

Arthur is my boy, my pretty pretty boy in suspenders and prettiness. His slicked back hair made me want to run up to him and mess it up (then run away because I get the feeling he'd have a flail-y panic attack over it---which I would laugh about from a safe distance and then offer him consolation in the form of cookies once he calms down).

I feel a desperate need to slash him (because that's how I show my love). Maybe with the Forger (whose name escapes me but I know the actor had a role in "Band of Brothers"). He was snarky and liked to blow things up and seeing the two put up with each other was hilarious. (I think they annoy each other to the point of torture, but I get a twisted sense of pleasure out of that. What does that say about me, I wonder?).

The female Architect (whose name also escapes me) was cute and smart and I want to adopt her.

There was a moment in the film that the characters went on to say something about the laws of physics and their suddenly not being applicable to the situation at hand. My first thought? "Oh, McKay would be pissed!" I could just picture him throwing a tantrum about it, all redfaced and panicky. It'd be great :D

This pretty much convinced me that my brain is wired by fandom. Seriously, a brain scan would probably show a map of fandoms, all interconnected in some way or another.

Fandom, I <3 you hardcore.

In conclusion: Inception, watch again y/y? *toddles off to find Inception!Arthur fanstuff*
