Here we are midweek and so it's time for our anti-procrastination post. What is the one thing that's hanging over you, dragging you down and all those other descriptions that apply? Something that if you just had the oomph to tackle it would fix it and leave you free of its nagging and gleaming with pride at your accomplishments.

Well this is the time to tackle it, you know why? We're here with you cheering you on, because we know you're awesome. So tell us about it and let us know how things are going (and whether you can hear our cheers or see our flying pompoms!).

Good luck team and go go go!

You have to be registered by the 22nd May to vote in the election on the 8th June.

A lot of people, especially young people, seem to be registering. This is a good thing.

1. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Ding won his quarter final. Against Ronnie O'Sullivan. And it was amazing. It was actually basically fine, but it felt difficult and painful because Hendry kept saying 'I think this is the biggest test of his career' and 'O'Sullivan has gone favourite in this match for me' and 'if he doesn't clear up from here I can't see him winning this match' and he means it LOVINGLY, but it's AWFUL. And I so nearly gave up on it and had to leave, and I did spend one whole frame watching the match on the other table instead, and just listening to the noises from the crowd on Ding's table to let me know it was going okay, which is the mark of Caring Too Much. Esp. considering it's only a quarter.

2. Ding and John are both in semi finals, and I have THREE MORE DAYS of snooker to care about and I get to care about BOTH matches. Ding probably won't win his, it's against Selby who he lost to in the final last year. And John ought to win his, which is almost more difficult because he probably still won't. But possibly it doesn't matter.

3. The most important thing isn't even that Ding won, it's that when he won Ronnie just held him for a while in front of everyone and looked at him with wonder. He gave him a hug and talked low in his ear, which was loveliness enough, but then when Ding went to move away, Ronnie, kind of just couldn't let go of him and held him there for ages talking to him about how brilliant and beautiful he is, and I genuinely thought it might last forever. And because the crowd is loud, the talking after a match is always really close in, and he was talking right against Ding's skin, and I know I talk about how much Hendry loves Ding, but Ronnie loves Ding SO MUCH, and it was just delightful.

4. Hazel calls Ding 'Junhui' which is nice, because the commentators don't, and it's a bit odd that they don't. They call everyone else by both first names and surnames interchangeably. There's only really Ding and Liang that they know well from China, and they do call Liang 'Wenbo' quite often now. I think 'Ding' is just a lovely name, I think that's why they stick with it more.

5. The last time they cuddled like that was when Ding was crying because he was scared at the masters, and Ronnie just looked after him and has looked after him ever since then, and Ding has never beaten him since then because he loved him too much, and Hazel was all 'well this is an important moment in their relationship' and kajsdoifjoeijsdsd. Then Ding came and did an interview that was just about how he loves Ronnie and how Ronnie said nice things to him and how he feels good.

6. Ding's second round match and quarter final match would both have made amazing finals. His semi is also going to be nearly impossible. He is just the unluckiest of unlucky people. Selby hasn't even been tested yet. Maybe he'll fall apart the moment he is.

'There’s a British TV show called “Fleabag.” Aphra is a bit like “Fleabag,” but in the Star Wars Universe. “Fleabag” is about this woman in her 20s who is just this moral monster. The stuff she does is utterly unforgivable, but also very funny to watch.' -- Kieron Gillen

The Weirdest Jack And The Beanstalk

From The Nostalgia Critic: The Weirdest Jack And The Beanstalk. It’s just a bit over 15 minutes, without all the usual skits that he's done lately with his reviews.

I watched that movie when I was 2 or 3 in the 1980’s; I'm just surprised someone else knows about it, since very few people I have encountered ever have. Right around that same time, I discovered both Unico movies. And around that same time was The Little Mermaid (also anime; this one, not another from the same time frame) and The Last Unicorn (which wasn’t as surreal as the others). Is it any wonder I am the way I am, and go for the darker (and possibly on the weirder side) fairy tale stuff?

(It explains a lot. Granted, back then I sort of liked the evil Hecuba from that version of Jack And The Beanstalk, and found Jack to be the weird one.)

Meanwhile, checking on the poll in the previous locked (only on Dreamwidth) post: So far, it’s at a tie between people just wanting to vote, and people in favor of a Gothic Horror/Romance community; second place is do both. I forgot to mention that the poll will continue through Saturday evening.

Currently finishing a presentation for tomorrow.

Naturally it's the time to have a bit of an existential nitpick.

So, today I've had:
- a large cup of coffee
- a large cup of cocoa with a dash of coffee
- a large cup of cocoa

For quite some time now, I've been saying I'm having a tea instead of I'm having tea.There was one day last week when I've had, like, 5 cups of tea in twelve hours. Because I have turned into a deplorable caffeine bot. I have been since I was 13 when I succumbed to the potent combination of perfectionism, I'll-forever-deny-it competitiveness in school, and having my eye on a really great uni.

I got into the uni, and along trailed my constant friend the caffeine cup. The caffeine cup has me by the heartstrings. I'm told by the doctor that heart palpitations are not healthy. So far I've had none. *cheers*

"My description of what Victor would look like without his scars or his costume is that it’s a look of a European man who’s got that look like he knows he’s the hottest shit in the universe. It kind of looks like Alex Maleev, as well, and kind of looks like Vincent Cassel sometimes. That’s what they come up with which was pretty funny. I like Vincent Cassel a lot. I think he’s a wonderful actor. I don’t want to insult the guy by saying that was my description." -- Brian Michael Bendis

John Higgins totally won his quarter final and now he's in a semi final and I'm just feeling confused. He was 11-5 going into this session and only needed two frames and usually when that happens he just couldn't care less about winning those two frames, he's just all relaxed and la la la, I'd rather win a final frame decider all things being equal, but instead of that he tried really hard and won 13-6.

Jason Muhammed is the current not-hazel. I don't like him as much as Rishi, I don't like him very much at all, but he's fine, he's not like worth complaining about. But it's always sad when people win a match and go for an interview and Jason is there instead of Hazel. It's doubly more awfully sad if fucking Peter Ebdon is there too. What was quite good was just that they interviewed John standing up and towering over him and he looked tiny and just laughed at basically everything Peter Ebdon said, because Peter Ebdon doesn't understand being good at snooker, so he was like 'you must have put a lot into being ready for this tournament' and John literally laughed and went 'not really Peter, I'm just lucky to be playing well' he said 'lucky' but he meant 'gifted'. And Peter asked him how he keeps so still on his shots and he just had to say it was something he had always done, by which he meant 'I'm just good at snooker Peter, I know it's confusing for you who are not good at snooker, but it's part of what it means to be talented'.

Then I just go on for a while about what might happen and won't happen and etc. )

(I am so sorry to people I have friended recently that I am just posting seemingly endless terrible posts about snooker. It does end. It ends next Monday. I'm not always like this.)

I'm still trying to catch up on posting fic to my Dreamwidth. As I go, I'm trying to post to a comm or two as well, because that's where DW falls down a bit, I think - there aren't as many active comms as there were on LJ. Some really, really active ones! But not as many.

Speaking of which, is there a place I could post my Black Tapes genfic? A general fandom genfic comm? I couldn't find a specific Black Tapes comm, but in searching, I did find that there's an option for DW to add that topic to your interests. (Which is awesome.) And then through that, I found [community profile] addme_fandom, which is like [community profile] addme, but fannish.

Meme with me? (as seen everywhere, probably because it's a good meme!)
Ask me:
1. the character I least understand
2. interactions I enjoyed the most
3. the character who scares me the most
4. the character who is mostly like me
5. hottest looks character
6. one thing I dislike about my fave character
7. one thing I like about my hated character
8. a quote or scene that haunts me
9. a character I wish died but didn’t
10. my ship that never sailed

Also, from [profile] yohijideranged, a music meme!

1. A song you like with a colour in the title.
I have three, because how do you choose these things?
