Aaron Sorkin gives me television orgasms.

Give me one of your characters and one of mine. I will write a love letter from mine to yours.

Snaps, because, lord knows no one trawls all the way to page four on their own.

Pretty much every time I eat a fresh peach now, I think of Renly.

That is all.

My stats, though I'm doing the simplest possible version:
Shortest - Jayne Cobb (91 words, yep)
Longest - Fleur Weasley (4517 words)
47 apps, 2012 word average per app
23 men / 24 women
So, essentially I write middle-of-the-road length apps. I don't see any particular trends in terms of length over the years. I haven't enjoyed a character more or less based on how long the app was. I think the only things I can spot are that characters I've played more than once tend to have slightly longer apps, and, games that are fully/primarily log based had slightly longer apps. Enjoyment wise I do tend to like those games better than trying to follow dozens of journal posts with comments. And I know I like to write a log or thread quickly; if I can start and finish something in a night or two, that's the best ever.

Also. When people say 'fustrating,' that is really frustrating for me.

I know most of my friends are writing like mad for [insanejournal.com profile] invol (myself included), but I wanted to let everyone know that we have a detective cast for Clue ([insanejournal.com profile] the_body) now, so memes will be this weekend, the killer will be chosen on Monday, and game play will start on Tuesday, 10 July!

There's still time to apply though, and there are now some really choice characters open to be held: Ms. White, Col. Mustard, Monsieur Brown, Lady Lavender, The Housekeeper, and The Dining Server to name a few. For anyone who was indecisive, or felt compelled to choose between all of the awesome games that have opened/are opening in the last month: Don't fret. Clue is meant to be a short term game just for the next couple of months, writing short bursts of logs and sleuthing around to find out which of your fellow players is writing the killer. It's a small game (likely won't have more than ten entries a day on your f-list) but I'm hoping that it's going to be something totally unique in terms of games that are around on IJ.

Yesterday was a day of new shiny things, today is the day of actually sorting through them. I had a proper bra fitting a couple weeks ago and so I ordered a bunch of pretty bras and underpants from the internet and they arrived and now I have to decide which sets I want to keep and which I want to send back. Also, my dad is retiring and one of his co-workers gave him a copy of the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5.5, and it worked on my computer too, hooray! On the downside... bzuh? Have to re-learn how to use photoshop because nothing is where I left it in my grossly outdated CS2.

Oh hey also, people holding at Clue: Something like 27 hours to either request an extension or send me your app! :)

Julie and Ronnie and Dea have all put up with my excitement over this, but, for those of you who haven't yet, I am cross-posting my latest music recommendation from ~soundsweets on livejournal.

  1. Tonight is my 10 year high school reunion. I'm not going, not because omg, I feel so old or anything, or that I haven't accomplished enough to feel proud when compared to my peers (k, that one's a bit true but like, I also weirdly don't care a ton that I'm not married or a mom and that I'm kind of under-employed atm?). I'm not going because it's in a casino bar from 6-8pm, for $30, for two drinks and snacks. I wasn't a big school spirit lady to start with, and of my two bffs from high school, one's not going, the other is coming with his wife (and their two kids are going to the picnic part, tomorrow), and it's too awkward because at their public wedding (he's Mormon, I'm not, can't be a part of the private one), he nearly crashed his car to leap out of it, run over, sweep me off my feet and spin me around, and then FORGET TO INTRODUCE ME TO HIS BRAND NEW WIFE. She understandably dislikes me, it would be awkward.

  2. For the last four days now, people have been texting and calling me, and I'm 95% sure it's because someone who must be a drug dealer gave them the wrong number. They're all like "Yo, this is _______, where you at? I've got cash, what's good?" or "Got any of the green things left? Have $50 cash." I've sent a "Wrong #, sorry," text to about nine different phone numbers now, so either this is one persistent guy with the wrong number and he's using friends' phones, or a drug dealer was so fucked up he gave the wrong number to a dozen people. Way to lose your business, drug dealer.

  3. Clue holds open tonight, jsyk! [insanejournal.com profile] the_body! Come have a mystery-filled summer! :D Edit: I found proxies for [insanejournal.com profile] helloworld and [insanejournal.com profile] rainbowling, if there's anyone who can do [insanejournal.com profile] aardwolves's, please let me know and I'll send her hold info along to you! Thank you [insanejournal.com profile] acejillian and [insanejournal.com profile] chthonian! ♥

  4. I have no idea what to do for Invol. I think I'm going to do what I did for Reaped, which was wait until there's three hours left before holds open and wing it, because that way I wouldn't get attached to any particular concept and be disappointed if someone beat me to it. That being said, anyone want/need anything in particular besides Loren who has already requested a Jewess of me?

My 2 hour layover just turned into a six hour layover. I paid $8 for internet, only to have my computer say, several minutes after purchase, that my battery life is going to be shorter now, so, I just have roughly 1.5 hours of computer time, unless I can find an outlet.

I may weep. Or sleep on the floor.

EDIT: I found an outlet. Now if only I could find a portal through time and space.

EDIT 2: It will now be seven hours instead of six. :-|

EDIT 3: $100 Southwest voucher and an apology for the extreme delay! I'm still exhausted and achy and really eager for a bed, but... now I can have another trip sometime this year on the cheap!

SPOILERS: Yay I won death bingo, boo because I hate that Alphard and Azimuth are dead, they were two of my five favorite tributes. :(
igpayatinlay: (Default)
Sorry for Death Bingo of Fail, reaped people, but yeah, all the stuff I tried to make last night, you'd all win or lose at the exact same time because the rows are all the same. To those of you who missed it... sorry and you're lucky, at the same time. >.<

EDIT: Okay, if you want to make your own, here's the basic table code, and you should re-order the table cells all over the place. Everyone have a half-way done, arrange to your own preferences bingo card. Cheat it up, because now you know Bloodbath Kills! :P

Selfish pimping for [insanejournal.com profile] thereaped, which is Hunger Games fandom, 72nd games:
  • District 11: Seeder (age 57-63) - This is my unselfish one. You'd get to play with [insanejournal.com profile] chthonian, who's friggin' awesome. PB suggestions include Lorraine Bracco, Mimi Kuzyk, Hiam Abbass, Catherine Keener, Mira Furlan, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Sela Ward, L. Scott Caldwell, Juliette Binoche, Julianna Margulies, Sarita Choudhury, Ellen Greene, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Stockard Channing.
  • District 8: Female Victor-Non-Mentor (age 64-70) - I have the current D8 female mentor, Cecelia Spinner, but she's only been doing it for about eleven years now (give or take a year or two). This lady would be her mentor, and a friend to her and Woof. PB Suggestions include Shirley MacLaine, Julie Andrews, Sally Field, Julie Walters, Jessica Lange, Lena Olin, Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren, Kathryn Joosten, Glenn Close, Gena Rolands, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie, Kathy Bates, Annette Crosbie.
  • District 8: 2nd Stylist - Anyone! :D
  • District 5: Escort - Male/Female, any age! This is maybe my biggest want actually. Your tributes are a nearly catatonic very quiet 15 year old girl and a deaf 16 year old boy, so... winning odds are low, but c'mon, we want someone to be our capitol guide!
  • Random Stylist Concept - Jim Broadbent from Moulin Rouge; worked his way up to the top, but has since slid partway back down the ladder.

DTW... like Ronnie and a couple others I'm feeling like I'm in a bit of a slump. It's not an unhappy one so much as inactive because Grace and Rosmerta are both outside of the spectrum of the Order/DE/DMLE trifecta where most of the big plots happen; so they're just living their lives as usual. If anyone who's there wants to befriend a barmaid or an unrepentant yet non-violent purist, THAT WOULD BE AWESOME. ♥

Give me one of my characters, past or present, and I'll tell you who the runner up PB was.
