So, I knew things were bad. Or, "not good," at any rate. Since the economy tanked, and my mother lost her job due to blindness and my father gave up his business because people would rather buy food than antiques, we've struggled. I haven't been great about helping, either, obviously. I feel guilty for everything I've bought/spent money on. I feel like such an ass. :-/

In any case, what I'm getting at is that I just found out that we got a foreclosure notice. So. Uh. That's a thing that I need to take care of. Hopefully, we can renegotiate the mortgage, and I can give my family money every month, and we can make it through this. But otherwise, we need to pay $78,000. Which is...uh, $77,999 more than I have right now. *Waves dollar bill like a white flag*

This wasn't entirely unexpected, of course, but...it's still a bit of a shock. I hope we can fix this.

(And I also promise not to bore you all with misery!posts...this is the first and last. I just needed to...vent, I guess.)

So, as I've said before, I listened to Department X on the way home from California. And, while I still have no idea what was going on in terms of plot, I really liked the interactions between Jack and Ianto (and I never much pay attention to plot, anyway). Wanna know why? Probably not. But just in case you do, read on!

Well then. I am awake at...4am.

Which is really 1am, but not. Huh.

I am home! I had a great time! I am really tired and also starving!

More later when I have re-learned how to use words. ;)

Okay, credit for the name goes to [livejournal.com profile] eldarwannabe. ;)

So I've got about an hour until my ride shows up, and about 7 until the plane takes off, and then about a seven hour flight, and this is just going to be a really long day, isn't it? I've just got some last minute things to pack (I know I'm going to forget something no matter what), and then I'm good to go!

(And apparently, by "last minute things to pack" I mean "episodes of Buffy to watch.")

See you all after the weekend! :D

Except [livejournal.com profile] analineblue, who I will be seeing in about 13 hours! :D

Can someone please write me a really well-written plausible, plotty, domestic Jack/Ianto mpreg story that's fully in character and has a happy ending?

I know the fandom has a handful (or less than) that meet that criteria, and I'm pretty sure I've read them all. Is this...a practically non-existent thing? I think it must be.

Why do I always want things that are so hard to find!? And to feel all warm and cozy. And what is with me and babies lately!? *Worried*
sariagray: (TW: John Hart Gun)
Oddly (and unlike 99.9% of the population), even though I watched the first handful of seasons of Buffy and all of Angel before seeing Torchwood, James Marsters will be John Hart to me first, and Spike second.

Which makes finally picking up Buffy where I left off (end of season 4) absolutely hilarious. And I swear...UNIT? The Initiative? THE SAME THING, OKAY?

Also, I have a headache. Also, I'm already packing for Friday and freaking out about security and the like. Also, I'm going to bed.

I will post the names of all the files in my WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Choose one (ish), and I will post a random line or two.

Torchwood! On Ice. Why is this not happening in real life? It would be amazing.

(Seriously. Weevils. Hilarious!)

SO. I don't know who here has been keeping up with Warehouse 13, but. Uhm. Spoilers!

SPOILERS. SO MANY. Jamie, don't read this until you watch! )

sariagray: (TW: Ianto Sceptical)
So I'm finally watching Part 1 of The Deathly Hallows, yeah? Not very far in yet. BUT. Luna Lovegood's father's got this pendant.

Spoilers for things )
sariagray: (VG: Pop Idol Oscar Wilde)
I am so confused about the finale of Doctor Who. SO CONFUSED. I don't even know what's going on anymore. I miss things like, you know, the other season finales. Not that I didn't enjoy this, because I did, but...yeah.

Spoilers! )

In other news, OMG, you guys, in less than two weeks I will be FLYING. For the first time! Well, not quite. I've flown in single-engine Cessna planes, and even a WWI bright red open-cockpit biplane, but not a jet. (Because I like to be different, okay?!) Not across the country, either. For a weekend (because I take many an impossible weekend trip). I AM SO EXCITED. Because I get to finally meet [livejournal.com profile] analineblue! And she will no longer be a person who exists solely on LJ and Facebook and my email. *Flails*

So that's an exciting thing! I've never been further west than, er...Chicago. Apparently, I have an "Annual Autumn Fandom Sojourn" thing happening, or something. The only downfall is that James Marsters will be approximately an hour from my house, and I will be across the country. Darn.

I'm also reading! Like, a real book? Which I haven't done in ages. I've picked up a copy of The Mermaid Chair. It's interesting so far! I like it. It has given me an undeniable craving to head to Mystic, though, so I might have to do that at some point! Like...tomorrow. If I can find someone to drag along, I may do this. I missed going there this summer.

And that...is that!

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Northern. Whether you have the world famous Inland North accent of the Great Lakes area, or the radio-friendly sound of upstate NY and western New England, your accent is what used to set the standard for American English pronunciation (not much anymore now that the Inland North sounds like it does).

If you are not from the North, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Southerner who hates Southern accents and tries really hard to "talk right"; or
(b) A New Yorker or New Jerseyan who doesn't have the full accent

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?

So. Basically, I pronounce things correctly and/or I should be on the radio? I don't have an accent? I don't even understand.

It's been a while since I posted one of these, partially because my mother and I haven't had lengthy and amusing conversations in a great many months. But. Well. Here we are.

Conversations behind the cut! )
sariagray: (Gwen Sad)
So I decided that I should be healthy! I made All The Doctor's Appointments for the first time in four years (YAY, Health Insurance!) and then I went to the grocery store to buy healthy foods to eat. You know, so I don't order takeout all the time. Especially at work.

I buy all of these great things to bring to work - hummus, and salad stuff, and light wheat bread, and turkey, and yogurt, etc. Then I get home and realize that I spent too much time shopping AND I bought absolutely nothing to eat for dinner, so I ordered a pizza. A bacon pizza.

It was delicious.

LOL @ Mood Icon. JACK'S FACE. "Jack knows you ate that pizza! Jack is disappointed in you!" It makes me feel even worse.

ETA: The mood icon to my previous entry is Gwen delivering pizza to Ianto. It's a whole epic tale of tragedy!

Author's Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash’s Rainy Day Cuddles, Cookies, and Tea Fest. Title comes from The Smith’s “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.” Because it was playing while I was trying to think of a title, to be honest. Remember when I wrote angst, you guys? *Nostalgic sigh*

(Not really that major.) Having reached a perfect stopping point with our [livejournal.com profile] ianto_bigbang (it's been beta'd, tidied, and submitted to the mods with a summary for their esteemed checking!), we...well, we stopped. Which is, I suppose, what one does when a stopping point is reached. ;)
