Fee, fie, foe, fum, I smell the blood of my third muffin  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, iceetoile ! Your house-elf smut will be forthcoming shortly. *smiles evilly in manner calculated to strike fear into the hearts of all who ship unpervertedly* (You know I've seen and read Hagrid/Dobby smut? With undertones of Harry/Dobby smut? Not to mention the Harry/Hedwig smut - and it's always smut, that's the most disturbing thing - that will one day take over this fandom and it's little dog too.)

Oh, all right. Only joking.

So it's FINALLY mid-term. A whole week free from ALL ART, Sharon's narcisstic whining, Mary's indecision as to whether she wants to be helped to quit smoking or not, Una's hatred of Green Day and Suzanne's...actually, I will miss Suzanne and her excellent take-offs of Tommy Tiernan. ('Who were you talkin' to, with your big happy man-face on you?' 'You were ridin' him with yer EYES!') I love my friends, but I love being able to listen to myself (and Barry) think even better. I need some time off, too, as I appear to have signed my soul away to write: Harry/Draco with house-elf weddings, Harry/Draco for BB, Harry/Ginny and main-pairing Lily/James, as well as other projects (such as the house-elf smut).

Anyone in Ireland should really avail of the Golden Disc's '3 for 30 euro' offer (for crying out loud, about thirteen European countries use the euro and there are STILL NO EURO SIGNS on any keyboard). The range is, naturally, limited, but it's a good deal all the same. I got Mean Girls, Cruel Intentions and the Urban Hymns album. Not to mention I wandered across to Eason's and ended up buying The Wee Free Men. (Of course you want to know all about my shopping list, in exhaustive detail! This is what they call a 'given'. After all I can't tell my mother, who in spite of  seeing me with a new book every three days, remains blithely unaware of the fact that she never sees any of the change from the fifty quid she gives me every week. I am physcially uncapable of not spending money when I have money, and also I am morally bankrupt, and yet she asks me every morning if I'm okay for money. Ehm. Long may it continue! Hear hear.)

Anyone had the Mars Bar drink? It's quite nice, if a bit gloopy. Sharon actually tutted when she saw me with it. She was there, 'How do you get away with eating stuff like that, and a muffin every day, and Kit-Kats at break, and Dr Pepper, and not break out in spots and turn into Tessie Ten Tonne?' Which is a bit rich coming from a size-ten ex-model. I pointed out that I weigh eleven stone, and even offered to share, but she would none, she gives you thanks, just kept on...and on...and on...for ten hours...she's lucky her flat has Sky, otherwise her assets would be way down.

*fangirls your icon repeatedly*

I just LOVE Dr. Cox so much! That icon just single handedly brightened up my day.

Relation to the content of your post: 0%

Oh, no worries! I love Scrubs, but it is most incredibly difficult to find icons for, and even harder to get good icons. Feel free to take it if you like!

I know. I used to have a few Scrubs icons on my website, but got rid of them because they weren't very good.

Feel free to take it if you like!

Thanks *snitches for later use*

Oh, all right. Only joking.

*laughs nervously*

You have signed your soul away, remember? It was in the contract, I'm sure it was. In big bold type.

Anyone had the Mars Bar drink?

Such a thing exists? *drools* And it is not merely a Mars Bar that's been chucked in a blender so that it liquidifies?

... Baby Jesus, the blended Mars Bar idea actually sounds FANTASTIC. *runs off to make before can remember diet*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 11th, 2005 01:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, hello dear! I thought you'd left. Was girding my loins in grief and everything. Whatever that entails, exactly.

Yes, and I even put a banner in my profile! (Doesn't the BB Draco look SERIOUSLY deformed? Is it just me?)

Oh indeed yes, and it only costs a euro! Great value! It tastes like a liquidified Mars Bar, though, yeah. If you're thinking about them, you could always do the Nigella thing - cover them in batter and deep fat fry them. As soon as I get my mitts on some batter - and a deep fat fryer - I'M THERE.

Diets are the spawn of evil. Like H/Hr.
Insufferable, man.cynicalpirate on February 11th, 2005 02:29 pm (UTC)
Nope. *manic grin* Still here, until early next morning. Am jacking up on LJ now to help me through the week. Loin girding sounds painful. I beseech you, don't do it on my account.

Yes, and I even put a banner in my profile! Oh, like, SNAP.

Doesn't the BB Draco look SERIOUSLY deformed? I think you put it best with "he resembled nothing so much as a constipated china doll". I noticed it aussi. He looks like he should be called Igor and plays with radioactive waste a lot.

Ah, but this is not a lose-weight diet, it is a 'Give up chocolate on the for a few days when all the teachers inexplicably bring in chocolate and your mumy buys every chocolate-based item in Waitrose and you find the super-sized Aero that survived the post-Christmas binge' diet. I think I'm supposed to feel healthier, now. I think.

Sod it - am definitely eating chocolate tomorrow.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 11th, 2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
Ah, okay then. I'll read up on poker instead, in a desperate attempt to find out how to PLAY it, so I can then WRITE it. Barry is no bloody help...

He also looks like he could double as someone called Tina who spents a lot of time in the Harley Street Surgery. WIND TUNNEL FACE, MAN! I hope that's not who illustrates us, if they take us...!!

You gave up chocolate with all that to eat? What are you, insane? Just eat an apple and stick your head out the window, that's what I do.
Minnow: robotminnow_53 on February 11th, 2005 01:20 pm (UTC)
House-elves, okay. Don't they get a sex-life too?

But Hedwig? That is a bit extreme. Like teaming a Mars Bar drink with a diet coke.

Btw, your fic's nearly ready. Astra's beta'ing it, and it should be back tomorrow with all the words cut! I hope to post it on Sunday, with quotes from your journal, but will let you know so you have a chance to contact me to delete your name from it if you need to!

Things my dear sweet beta won't allow me to say: 'Poor old Padfoot'; 'So very beautiful' (usually applied to Sirius); 'in good form'; 'freaked out'. That will reassure you. The list will be longer once she's read this one.
^_^
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 11th, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
Not when I have to write about it, they don't.

Well, I've drunk those in succession. But jeez, beastiality? With an OWL? There has to be a word for that, but I can't think of it.

No, I want my name on it! I intend to pimp it here, too, I mean, IT'S FOR ME. WOW.

'Poor old Padfoot'? That sounds very English tea and muffins. She is quite...scything, no?
Minnowminnow_53 on February 11th, 2005 11:20 pm (UTC)
Owls goes rather beyond bestiality, doesn't it? In real life, I'm an animal (well, cat) lover who is totally appalled by any suggestion of animal abuse. Makes me want to kill the perps. Shouldn't think I'm alone there.

She's quite scything: and a bit subjective! I always do a third and fourth edit myself and feel very guilty if I add something in case she wouldn't like it. I extensively beta'd and rewrote one of her fics, Numquam, when it wasn't working, and she recently went to check it out and found she'd missed a 'Poor old P' I'd chucked in there! Incandescent rage. I don't see anything wrong with it either. But Astras can be exacting.

Hoping, if my meagre artistic skills hold out, to do a special icon for the fic as well! Watch this space...

^_^
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 12th, 2005 04:32 pm (UTC)
I also LOBE cats. I hate animal abuse, and I do not see what could possibly hot about beastiality. I'd take almost anything else!

I saw the icon! It's so cute. *glomps*
Minnowminnow_53 on February 12th, 2005 04:23 am (UTC)
Hi, sorry to spam you. Just to let you know I'm putting the fic in my journal this afternoon, so I can do final messing about and see how home-made icon works! Let me know if there's anything you don't like, if you see it today, that is.

*weeps*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 11th, 2005 02:53 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was only one. I stayed away from that afterwards. Because of the emotional scarring, but MAINLY because of the blatant comma abuse.
gabbysun on February 11th, 2005 03:15 pm (UTC)
Ah, so you are less a machochist than a grammar-Nazi.

Hey now, makes sense to me.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 11th, 2005 03:17 pm (UTC)
Considering the amount of pr0n I ingest, my vote is certainly on the latter. Grammar before pain! That is my motto, ever and anon!

You seem so sad without your smilies.
gabbysun on February 11th, 2005 04:13 pm (UTC)
HOTTT.

I know, I know! I feel so . . . despondant.

:(

This is when religion starts getting crappy.

But! I am wearing EARRINGS with smilies on! Now.

Is it euro dollars, or just plain euros?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 12th, 2005 12:16 pm (UTC)
It's EURO. No dollars, and no s.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on February 15th, 2005 02:38 am (UTC)
Piffle. Thanks though, I need to know for my programming coursework, and I really couldn't be arsed to look it up.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 15th, 2005 03:38 pm (UTC)
TMI: It's also just plain cent. I reckon the French dinnae like plurals.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on February 16th, 2005 04:09 am (UTC)
TMI?

I knew that, which is why I got confused by the dollar things.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 16th, 2005 02:39 pm (UTC)
Too Much Information.

Again, we could probably blame the French. Or, on the outside, the Germans.
Lord Marmaduke Newbrycatsmeat on February 17th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
Centimes. Or Centines.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 17th, 2005 02:35 pm (UTC)
Centies.

THIS POST EXCITES ME FOR MANY REASONS!
Harry/Ginny and main-pairing Lily/James??? WHEN WILL I SEE THIS???
Anyone had the Mars Bar drink? WHEN WILL THEY GET THIS IN AMERICA??? What is the company that makes it? The same one that makes Mars Bars, right? Wait - do we even have Mars Bars in America...? Oh, NO!
I am so high-strung right now. Shifts is playing havoc with my sanity. AHHHH!!!
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: I believe I can flyscoradh on February 14th, 2005 02:50 pm (UTC)
*is vague* Eventually. I keep going to sleep in the middle of the day for no reason, and it's pretty hard to write when you're asleep. On the bright side, I intend to be alive for several more decades, so...xD

I can't believe you don't have it, what with all the other amazing junk food ye have! I will check the company, but I assume it's the same.

WHAT! NO MARS BARS?! WHAT DO YOU DO FOR NOUGAT CARAMEL?!! *mourns*
Caitcoralia13 on February 14th, 2005 09:26 pm (UTC)
I have been corrected. We do, in fact, have Mars Bars, though they are not as popular as other things we have. And don't worry. We have plenty of nougat AND caramel. Plenty.

I MUST HAVE THIS H/G L/J. It's like you took my two favorite ships and put them together and then withheld the product. It's like that... because it IS that.
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: I'm Ronscoradh on February 15th, 2005 03:07 pm (UTC)
Well, I can understand that. These Reese's cups sound pretty HOT.

How's about this? I write it for your birthday. Definitely by then, maybe before, but mainly because it's good to have a deadline. Mmm? Ye ken, at the mo I'm working on something big and VAIR odd. It's not slash, and you might like it...we'll see. But it's kind of hijacked Barry. x(
Caitcoralia13 on February 15th, 2005 08:11 pm (UTC)
YAYness! Good, good - you have three months, then... to the day! Wowzers! I cannot freaking WAIT!
And what is this idea? When will I read it? When can I expect more MC? (And other such annoying questions.)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 16th, 2005 02:23 pm (UTC)
While we're on it, though; how do you see L and J getting together, as in, what would you like to see ME, doing to THEM, sort of? Because I've never really thought about it!

By the end of the week, I imagine. I just have to write three more...bits.

MC? Er...*falls back to standby 'eventually'*
Caitcoralia13 on February 16th, 2005 08:47 pm (UTC)
OH, I'm so glad you asked. Well, I cannot tell you how to get them together - you should just do whatever feels natural and works with your story. I, however, have given the matter a great deal of thought, as I have written (and my write again) the scene myself. Well, you saw how I got them together. I like the idea of Lily taking the initiative, since James has been forced to so many times before. I feel like he's kind of earned the right to have her do the work. I have also recently been toying with the idea of them almost getting together and then falling apart again, based on rainingtulips's feeling that, after all that love/hate, it shouldn't be TOO easy. Something like, James kisses her then pulls away when his brain catches up with his body, and he thinks he has massively over-stepped his bounds, apologizes and says "I didn't mean to do that", which horrifies Lily, who wants very much for him to do that, but takes it in stride, though she is pretty upset, and it takes a while for them both to come to their senses and kiss forever. Hmm... think I'll go write that now...
That was entirely unhelpful, I know. If you have more specific questions about them as characters, or once you know where your story is going, I can try to be more useful??
So this story is both L/J and H/G? *weeps* I didn't know it was posible to love someone so much! And since it's my present... can I request... no slash??

Excitement! I will have Bittersweet to you w/in the hour!

Yeah, well, all fades away with the promise of my lovely present! I could pay you in Pop-Tarts! Fudge! I still want to read more MC, tho. Whenever the mood to write it strikes you!
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: Crabbe angstscoradh on February 17th, 2005 02:19 pm (UTC)
I think I'll probably take 'initiative' out of that; I have an idea. It's firelight. That's enough to go on. I don't know will there be H/G in it, exactly, that'll have to wait for MC - rather, as they're not born yet! But there will be lots of L/J, more than enough to make up for it, and *sigh* Remus and Sirius will BOTH have gfriends.

Not Peter though. I'm not THAT philanthropic.

*drools* Pop....Tarts...
Caitcoralia13 on February 17th, 2005 09:39 pm (UTC)
Okay, we have to stop talking about this, before I go crazy. I can't wait to read it!!! It will be amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will send them to you through e-mail!
every Starbucks should have a polar bear: I believe I can flyscoradh on February 18th, 2005 02:50 pm (UTC)
Yes, yes, I don't want to stop the narrative flow, so don't say anything more, darling!!

OOH!!! I love so many of her icons! How do I take/credit them?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on February 16th, 2005 02:24 pm (UTC)
Sure, just click the link there, save an icon to My Pictures and upload it (that's what I do), then leave a comment saying which ones you're taking and thanks; then in the comments bit, put in the name. That's the whole deal with iconmakers, they like credit too!
