Now that I have time to actually sort of breathe: the first week of school was a success! And by success I mean I haven't sliced my fingers off yet. I still look pretty ridiculous in my uniform and I keep getting stared at on the bus, but that's not all that new, really, and actually having kids turn around in their seats or trip over their own feet trying to look at "the funny costumes, mommy, look!" is fairly amusing.

But, I don't know! Nothing really too exciting to report, since we haven't been allowed to do much more than make chopping motions yet. Oh! Although now I have a really vivid idea of how Rodney McKay would teach a Culinary Foundations class, since I swear one of the chefs secretly is him, going around and yelling at people to correct their stance or RISK LOSING THEIR LIMBS, HAVE YOU NEVER HELD A KNIFE BEFORE IN YOUR LIFE. I imagine John Sheppard would be his most insolent student and Rodney would daily tear his hair out over John's incorrectly tied neckerchief and scruffy cheeks and daredevil knife skills.

Strike a pose.

Other things of interest: 1) I get a [personal profile] kashmir1 today and hopefully she will be willing to cuddle me a little because my god it has been a long week; 2) I'm building myself a little garden in the backyard and it will hopefully grow things! which may or may not be green! I'm kind of excited, since I've never done a proper ground garden before; 3) I have no fannish shows to watch anymore! Supernatural is over, SGA is gone, Merlin hasn't started up yet, and Glee is just way too much contact embarrassment in one hour to watch more than once: what are you all watching?; 4) I have [personal profile] pennyplainknits' awesome merlin big bang and you don't, nyah, nyah.
unamaga: (throw those curtains wide)
It's not just me seeing that "which states have you visited" meme pop up on her flist and freaking out at all the red states, right? After a minute I calm down, but every single time my heart freezes up with fear and I think somewhere, somehow the Democrats have fucked it up all over again. I need to find my happy place, you guys, I can't take much more of this craziness.

Anyway, I know I've been sort of MIA lately - due to a number of events and unevents, some more pleasant than others - so here are a few things you should know:

  1. [livejournal.com profile] eleveninches, I am still working on your beta. I am the slowest beta ever! I'm so sorry! But I haven't forgotten it if you were worried, and it should be done by the weekend.

  2. Happyfest entries are due in five days! Fahgoijwfg, woot happy fic! I'll admit, I'm probably more excited about these stories than I am about Halloween candy. John/Rodney > chocolate, y/n? Justify.

  3. Lims voting for this week has started! I have no idea how I managed to fumble my way this far in the competition, but there you have it.

  4. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday and sent me ecards and virtual gifts. You are all made of awesome, and I would like to extend my squishiest hugs to you for making an otherwise blah day much more bearable. I love you all, you know that?

  5. On that note, a belated birthday rec: Coupling, by [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse (NC-17). Warning: this fic contains lethal levels of amazing, no I'm serious. Lederhosen! *squeaky noise of glee* Go read it if you haven't already!

  6. While in the city this weekend I bought a ZOMBIE MCCAIN SHIRT. Epic lulz. I've already been stopped three times for wearing it, it's that awesome. When I find my camera, I'll take a picture of me wearing it while making a zombie face, which, not gonna lie, will probably only be terrifying because of the fact that I bashed my nose with a cabinet door today and now it's kind of swollen. Can you dig it.

  7. John Sheppard is fierce.

halp plz

  • Is there someone around willing to help me with my last [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo piece? I'm having a little bit of trouble meshing all the bits together and could definitely use a beta.

  • I'm trying to make cupcake pops. "But, Mel," you might say, "you're really going to try to bake after The Brownie Fiasco of 2007?" I know, I know, but so far, I've had no trouble with the cake or the chocolate. However, I wanted to use melted peanut butter chips for the top half - probably my first mistake - and the peanut butter is being...less than cooperative. I followed the directions on the back, but it's still thick and gritty and none of the chocolate tricks I know (add drops of veggie oil, etc) are helping. Also it's gotten so hot on the bottom that it's starting to have a mousse-like consistency. Ajaw;oigjf, I've been working with it for over forty minutes now and nothing's going right. Is it worth it, or should I just dip the whole damn things in chocolate?

  • For your pains, here is John Sheppard being ridiculous.

unamaga: (and cover)
Yesterday sucked, so today I'm posting my first [livejournal.com profile] art_bingo entry, whee! Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] villainny for suffering through this in varying stages of completion, and for only raising her eyebrows placidly when I became deranged with exhaustion mid-fursplode. For the "werewolf" box on my bingo card.

Got a curse I cannot lift, shines when the sunshine shifts. )
unamaga: (it's the kidding!)
unamaga: i would do jessica rabbit. srsly.
Villainny: hahahahahaha EVERYONE WOULD
Villainny: straight, gay, John Sheppard.
Villainny: EVERYONE.
unamaga: TRUFAX
unamaga: john sheppard wants to BE her, though
Villainny: XD
unamaga: OH MY GOD


unamaga: ARE YOU DEAD?
Villainny: I AM DEAD
unamaga: I WARNED YOU

I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that gay. )
unamaga: (so not a morning person)
No, seriously, I do. And tons more respect for anyone who has ever played guitar, even if they did it really, really badly. God. I can't even hold down C for more than a few minutes without being in mondo amounts of pain. My hands! They are way too dainty for this! But, of the good, my sister's boyfriend taught me how to do those really gorgeous harmonic chords from August Rush, and I figured out all on my own how to pluck out parts of Habenera: I am now a happy clam.

Once I look less like I'm just randomly pawing at the strings in the futile hope that somehow I will make a pretty sound, I will possibly even attempt to take a picture. That's how excited I am, okay.

Anyway. I know I'm massively behind on comments and, like, everything ever. Please do not hit me with a rolling pin. :(

The house is all mine from Sunday to Wednesday, so I plan to take advantage of the abandoned living room and spend a lot of time writing. And, yes, I keep saying I'm almost done with the fics I'm writing, and then I go back and reread them and something vital in my head goes gllllllllrk and stops working. So, uh, it's slow-going. Hopefully! Hopefully the quiet will allow me to get past the part of the thigh holster fic wherein John slams Rodney against a wall.

Speaking of unutterably hot things:

Good morning, flist.
unamaga: (come up and see me)
This is all Julie's fault. And, well, Andrea contributed, but since she didn't know at the time, I'll give her a free pass. Cut for sheer size, not to mention slight NWS-ness - and by that, I mean John's wearing fishnets. Original photo found through google search.

I promise one day I'll actually churn out something semi-serious. Maybe.

Just a sweet transvestite )

Hot Zone was on Sci-Fi today (which, by the way, I no longer get on my regular TV? Holy crap?) and guess what, John Sheppard is smolderingly hot in an orange hazmat suit. Seriously, his mouth is out of control here, and it is way too humid out to contemplate how good it would look wrapped a certain part of Rodney's anatomy.

John Sheppard: skirting the 'safe for work' line since 2004 )
unamaga: (avast matey!)
In the grand tradition of oversharing on livejournal, I would like to gift you all with this lovely piece of porn that actually had me going, "Wait, John, what? John masturbating? Wait," for a minute. As of most posts I seem to make lately, this is...really very much not work-safe. There's no sound, though, so you're good there. Happy watching, flist, and happy Thursday.

embedded for your ad-free enjoyment )

I swear one day soon I will actually have some sort of valid content in this journal. Until then, rock on, my flisters, and mind the slippery floors on your way out.
unamaga: (can't hear my beats yo)
I have a massive headache and some dude at the food store tried to surreptitiously grope me while I was looking at the frozen dinners; I guess it's all I deserve for even thinking of eating that much sodium. Needless to say, I'm feeling kind of shitty! So what do I do but throw together a quick manip of John Sheppard without his shirt on titled "Foxy Gardener John Wants to Mow Your Lawn". Don't judge me.

unamaga: (non-conforming as can be)
John Sheppard is at LEAST this flexible, okay. (NWS) )

EDIT: So, I'm gonna turn this into an impromptu ficathon, since people are ALREADY participating and that is FABULOUS. The rest of this week, no limits - art, fic, whatever you want, just as long as it's some good old fashioned porning based somehow on these pictures. You can obviously keep going if you're inspired but can't finish your project out by next Sunday, but I'll be putting together a master list of everything that's in by then. Look at me, being optimistic about participation! \o/

Metric - Calculation Theme, a song that I'm really enjoying today. :>

Yesterday morning, while waiting for the train on the platform with about twenty people clustered around me in a big knot, I was struck by an idea for fic. The only thing I had with me was my Stargate Atlantis tie in novel. I ended up writing smut on the inside covers, leaning on my own thigh while standing up, as a few interested parties tried to peer over my shoulder discretely. Oh, zany life.

Last night, Julie and I watched Indiana Jones. I am a heathen and had never seen it before (let's not even talk about my lack of Star Wars, because I think someone will actually stone me). It was fantastic fun, though, and I now understand the Harrison Ford thing, even though I'd always gone, "Ummm," when people talked about him before. And, well, because Julie and I are...Julie and I, the conversation inevitably turned to John Sheppard. My one track mind, let me show it to you. )

So I guess my real point here is: why hasn't fandom provided me with a John that carries a whip and wears a fedora?
unamaga: (high note (will always love YOUUuuu))
So [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1 and [livejournal.com profile] amberlynne came up with this awesome idea for John to be a bike messenger that delivers packages to Rodney's office. It will be an epic tale of love and snap pants! And since I am really easy and I love Julie, I've made a manip to fully express my devotion to the cause.

I should probably mention that, yes, [livejournal.com profile] kashmir1 is writing this. *glee*
