1. WHY DOES EVERYONE ON THE PLANET NOT SHIP SERENA/BLAIR?

2. [personal profile] inlovewithnight and I have been mainlining How I Met Your Mother the past couple of weeks. Apparently I have an epic post in me about how Robin/Barney, while it looks great from a distance, doesn't actually work, because deep down they really want completely different things. Actually I've tried to write that post several times, and then abandoned it each time, because I realized I was projecting all over the place. But seriously, dudes, watch ANY EPISODE WHERE EITHER OF THEM DEALS WITH THE PROSPECT OF BABIES OR THEIR CAREERS. Who is invested in their career and traveling the world as part of the adventure of their career? Is it both of them? IT IS NOT. Who really really loves babies? Is it both of them? IT IS NOT.

Basically I have this theory where in an alternate universe where bisexuality and polyamory are the norm, Barney is the Ted of the group. THINK ABOUT IT.

Or, rather, the second Ted, because in that universe, the show is not called How I Met Your Mother, it's called How I Married Barney. Or it's still called How I Met Your Mother, but the mother is part of Barney's dream "2.5 kids and 2.5 partners" scenario, where the two partners are Ted and the mother (or, ideally, Robin, but again, she does not want kids) and the ".5" is a placeholder for the series of partners he and/or Ted and/or the mother have.

3. Then today we ran out of HIMYM DVDs and I couldn't be bothered to AHEM the sixth season just yet, plus thanks to Tumblr I spent the last few days all starry-eyed over pictures of Blair and Serena, so we watched the first few episodes of Gossip Girl. SERIOUSLY WHY DOES EVERYONE ON THE PLANET NOT SHIP SERENA/BLAIR??????!?!?!?!?!?!!!!????

4. "I don't even know why you went to boarding school to begin with. Do you know how it felt calling your house when you didn't show up at school and having your mom say 'Serena didn't tell you -- that she moved to Connecticut?'"

WELL BLAIR CAME BY YOUR HOUSE THE OTHER DAY
YOUR MOTHER SAID YOU WENT AWAY
SHE SAID THERE WAS NOTHING THAT BLAIR COULD'VE DONE
THERE WAS NOTHING NOBODY COULD SAY
WELL YOU AND BLAIR YOU'D KNOWN EACH OTHER EVER SINCE LONG BEFORE YOU WERE SIXTEEN
SHE WISHES SHE COULD'VE CALLED, SHE WISHES SHE COULDVE TALKED TO YOU
JUST TO SAY GOODBYE, BOBBY JEAN STEVIE V. SERENA V.

5. Oh thank God, Night is apparently the only person besides me who doesn't care about Nate or Chuck, let alone Dan. UGHHHHHHH WHY IS BLAIR/SERENA SO AMAZING TO ME. Like, I have a couple other BFF OTPs (Ted/Barney, Bruce/Steve), and yet even though I'm totally into pairings that involve BFFs, not all BFF combinations result in pairings I'll be into. BUT SERIOUSLY BLAIR/SERENA, BRUCE/STEVE, AND TED/BARNEY, LET'S TALK ABOUT THEM.

6. Night and I were both all sad about how we had to go to work tomorrow until we remembered that it's a four-day week. We're still kind of sad, but at least the week that starts tomorrow doesn't last as long as usual.

7. She also thinks I should write the Bruce/Steve I really want to write, and just find/replace "recording studio" with "McLaren's", and "Bruce" and "Steve" with "Ted" and "Barney", respectively, not least because I'd probably get more readers that way. We E Street Bandomers are nothing if not realistic.

8. Is the way I feel about Blair and Serena the way fans of dudeslash pairings in things that otherwise have jack going for them feel ALL THE TIME?

Hello, Internet! I am kind of sad and lonely lately. 'Tis the season and all, I guess. This morning I listened to loud music, mostly Beyonce and Joan Jett and some Clash and Ramones on the way to work. That helped. Also with [personal profile] inlovewithnight gone for the weekend, the cat always becomes super-affectionate with me, which is fun.

Plus apparently we are sharing our Yuletide letters in anticipation of Yuletide Madness! Mine is here. Also, my birthday is two weeks from tomorrow, I'm just putting that out there.

I have spent lots of time on Tumblr lately. It fits my attention span better, I feel like. At the moment mine mostly consists of Serena/Blair, Bruce/Steve, and some occasional Simpsons quotes, "Sophie Okonedo *_____*", and Harry Potter/Mean Girls macros, because for some reason Harry Potter/Mean Girls macros are always funny to me. Also, today I posted these two pictures in separate posts, one right after the other, and didn't notice until later.



Mostly I walk away wanting to do a Serena/Blair vid, about Serena running off pre-show and Blair hurting over it, set to "Bobby Jean". Maybe once I get my bonus + tax return and buy the new computer I'm planning on, I will vid more than once every two or three years, who knows?

I also started a gender-swapped and race-bent BtVS casting, but mostly it was an excuse to talk about Donald Glover as Buffy and Sophie Okonedo as Giles. THINK ABOUT IT. Or just talk to me about Sophie Okonedo in general. Q: how gorgeous is she? A: All of it. She is ALL OF THE GORGEOUS. Dear Sophie, we should have a gay Jewish wedding and then have lots of tiny babies, yes? Yes. Okay, glad we've got that settled.

Okay, back to cleaning; the fam is coming up to visit tomorrow, plus I have a bunch of baking to do. Happy Friday to all!

Pushing: [livejournal.com profile] het_idcrack. I am so freaking excited about this, I can't even. It seems to be largely skewed towards STXI at the moment, for those on my lists who are interested in that, and for those who aren't, go leave some prompts for things you are interested in! I would kind of love to write more Serena/Tony Stark/Blair, I'm just saying. Or Buffy/John. Or some Avatar stuff.

Speaking of GG, I watched "Carrnal Knowledge" today and man, I kind of want a Victorian/steampunk AU where Chuck is a detective and Nate/Vanessa are his faily assistants who just wander around after him :D?-ing at everything. And sometimes they have ridiculous threesomes.

I think I should have another beer. 3:48 in the afternoon what?

Okay, so [livejournal.com profile] pirateygoodness shared some pictures from a photoshoot Blake Lively did with Esquire, in which she was "pretending to be James Dean"! Leather jacket, wifebeater, I seriously love when girls rock the greaser look, so I had to check it out.

A couple of pictures from said shoot. )

Like, leaving aside how horribly poor Blake was greased up, it's a pretty great bunch of pictures! There was something I really liked about them, something that seemed kind of familiar, and I couldn't figure it out. Especially on that second one, I was like "wait, I -- ratty wifebeater, pulling up the collar of the leather jacket, lost-little-kid look on her face -- I know that picture, it's not James Dean, where do I OH MY ACTUAL GOD."

I am genuinely a little ashamed of how long it took me to figure it out. )

THAT PRETTY PRETTY LADY IS TOTALLY PRETENDING TO BE BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND I REFUSE TO BE TOLD OTHERWISE.

i. SPICE GIRLS MUSICAL. I have nothing rational to say about this.

ii. I only saw half of Leverage last night because I was super-sleepy and finally gave up and went to bed at 10:30, figuring TNT would rerun it at some point (plus don't they usually stream it online after it airs?). What I saw, I liked!

iii. Since I finished Gossip Girl S1 and don't have S2, I needed something new to watch while I worked out in the morning, so I watched Doctor Who for the first time in ages, namely "Girl In The Fireplace", which I love but whose ending is so fucking stupid that it ruins the whole thing. Ten is irritating me a little less this time around on the whole, though, so that's all to the good, and also I was delighted by seeing Angel Coulby.

iv. I'm working on a chromatic casting for National Treasure, and now I'm so delighted by the cast I've got that I suspect I will be disappointed in the future when I put the DVD in and realize that cast is just in my head. :( I'll have to get into Photoshop at some point today so I can post that.

v. Returning to the subject of Gossip Girl, I really want a Serena/Blair vid to "23rd Street Lullaby". Also, I was thinking about how the show is really obviously the tale of their epic tempestuous love and was like "is this how McShep people feel all the time? Or Wincesters?" I really like this feeling!

vi. Things I have enjoyed reading this Porn Battle:Maybe I'll try to write some more for that today.
