What is your favorite opening line of a book, and why?

"I, Lucifer, Fallen Angel, Prince of Darkness, Bringer of Light, Ruler of Hell, Lord of the Flies, Father of Lies, Apostate Sumpreme, Tempter of Mankind, Old Serpent, Prince of this World, Seducer, Accuser, Tormenter, Blasphemer, and without doubt Best Fuck in the Seen and Unseen Universe (ask Eve, that minx) have decided- oo-la-la!- to tell all."

- I, Lucifer by Glen Duncan

My favorite book ever! :)

Forgive me while I sing with glee.

I leave the Internets for a few days because I'm wrapped up in this ridiculously long and insanely excellent novel Fall of Giants by Ken Follett and then THIS HAPPENS:



SHE'S PREGNANT!



Who's reporting it? The Daily Mail's reporting it. The Mirror. The Sun. Tumblr's going nuts - again.

Yea, again, I know, they're not the AP, and we haven't technically gotten a confirmation on their engagement yet. BUT LOOK AT THAT BELLY. LOOK AT THAT. 

There is only three explanations for a bump that size on a young woman:

A) That's the most unflattering coat ever designed and should be burned along with the spinning wheels that made it a la Sleeping Beauty.
2 - no B) She's completely let herself go. 
3 or possibly C) SHE'S PREGNANT!

I'm fangirling everywhere, I know, but this is my IRL ship and I'm just so excited for them. :3 Those babies are going to be so adorable. Oh! What if it's a girl? Then the doctor's daughter, who played the doctor's daughter, will have given birth to the doctor's daughter!! :D

...I'm going back to my novel now.

This makes me embarrassingly excited.

DAVID TENNANT & GEORGIA MOFFETT ARE ENGAGED!



I know, I know, the only source for this amazing, awesome, better than anyone could hope for news concerning my IRL OTP is The Sun. Not exactly the AP, but still, just you wait, Henry Higgins! Ten-Inch is gonna come out with an announcement any day now.
EDIT: OK! Magazine, The Daily Mail, and BBC America's Angolphenia blog have all backed The Sun's story. Still waiting on something official...

And to all those people complaining "but she played his daughter!", "he's too old for her!", "but david, i thought we were gonna get married!", and, my least favorite, "what about billie?!" :



AND

To kids from 1 to 907

Wasn't feeling the Christmas love, but thanks to these perfect human beings, now I am!

So, to all of you that feel Jack Frost nipping at your nose, but aren't singing yule tide carols by the fire, here! A present! It's SEVEN days till Smithmas Christmas!



Icon Overhaul...Again



So in my LJ history my icons have gone from all David Cook, to all Alexander Skarsgård, to all General Hospital, now to all Doctor Who. I really should learn to mix and match. But they're like potato chips or Walker, Texas Ranger clips that Conan O'Brien used to show, I can't have just one!

Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again: The fifteen icon limit sucks.

Anyway. I've expanded my icon making to Doctor Who, a show which is just too awesome to put into words, specifically Series 5 and Eleven/Amy. While I love GH and all the icons I made from it, The Doctor is my new TV obsession. And because of that obsession, I have new icons. :3

GotchaCollapse )
 
Clicky for table. Or just pull up my user pics. Or scrapbook. Whatever.
Who would you appoint as Earth's ambassador to alien races, and why?

David Tennant and Bono.

Their official uniform would be a brown pinstripe suit, converse, and sunglasses.

Earth would be represented well. :)

It's that time again!

 Even though October's just started, I'm already looking towards November. And what, dearies, happens in November, besides the holiday that allows you to overeat in the name of the Pilgrims and Indians and Geronimo and the like? NaNoWriMo!

November is National Novel Writing Month and, for the fourth year in a row, I will be participating. This year also marks the fourth consecutive year that I'll be working on the same. bloody. novel. (No hard feelings or disappointments there.) I'm hoping to finish this time! And even though I said that last year, (and the year before. and the year before that. and the- aw hell.) I really mean it this time! I am going to finish this book! 

Maybe if I keep telling myself that, I'll believe it. 

Anyway~ not much going on in Kimboland. Other than the normal roll-into-a-fetal-position dizzy spells, call-Hephaestus-because-Athena's-about-to-come-out-of-my-head migraines, and a random and particularly unwelcome debilitating muscle cramp in my back last night, life's been peachy. Today is my father's birthday though. So, even though he failed to call or drive the tiresome three blocks to come and visit me on my milestone 18th birthday five months ago, I am going to be the bigger person and go visit and wish him a happy birthday.

Maybe. The day's still young.

God help me, I'm actually doing this.

 Being the obsessive General Hospital fan and Michael/Kristina shipper that I am, I've stumbled upon un_love_you 's challenge and the plot bunnies are forcing me to participate. Yea, yea, the plot bunnies. I'll blame it on them.

So here's my table. I've already knocked out one
(the inspiration for #9 hit as soon as I saw the prompt), only twenty nine to go. Wish me luck!


TABLECollapse )

New Icons!

 And they're all General Hospital icons! And they're all made by me! :) I feel so accomplished. And creative. And I've got to stop starting every sentence with 'and'.

Anyway, I've recently (since December, actually) renewed my love, and daily viewership, of General Hospital. I used to watch this show everyday way back when Sonny and Alexis were an item, Ric was the big baddie, Jason was still lanky, and Zander was alive. Oh, Zander, how I miss you. Now my new obsession is Michael- and a Michael/Kristina ship, but that's a whole other soapbox. I just love that little angry, murderous kid! :D

So now I have many icons of him. :3

EDIT: Switched out all of my GH icons for some Doctor Who ones. Damn the fifteen icon limit.
