I'm being horribly absent again and I'm sorry but I lose interesting things to blog about. To summarize:

- I've watched most of The Big Bang Theory - AND I LOOOOVE IT!!!! I rarely openly laugh at TV comedies but TBBT has me laughing every episode. ♥ Sheldon is wonderful.

- The new Harry Potter trailer and all the icons that are resurfacing makes me want to read Harry Potter again. And revive the fandom and write fics... Is that sad? If anyone feels like handing me Harry/Draco fics or Harry/Luna or... I don't know, anything generally good :D :D Except Harry/Ginny or really any pairing involving that particular redhead.

- I've applied for accommodation at the University of Glasgow! Woohoo! One step closer to September and I think on Tuesday I'll start figuring out the tuition paying thing. I'm horribly excited but slightly scared - where will me and my sister end up after flying over there? Where shall we stay? Should we bring pepper spray? Important tiny currently-irrelevant things like that...

Tomorrow I aim at cleaning my room. The probability of that happening is still uncertain.

YES! I always love to see new Big Bang Theory fans. I've been pimping that show since day one!

Also, I posted this on my journal, but I know you're a busy gal, so I wanted to let you know that we get TWO new eps of The Unusuals next week. Huzzah!

Completely understandably. I also like that it had gone for almost two seasons when I started watching it because then I could watch it as a marathon :D :D The show is utter love.

Oh my gosh, we do? That's great! I demand some more 'Casey is rich' moments because I loved when her accountant came and visited her at work. "You're the evil step mother" hehe

The Big Bang Theory is pretty lolarious. XD Gotta love Sheldon and his uber geekiness.

I swear I think I'm more excited for HBP to be out than before, from that new trailer alone. OMG.

Indeed. And the worst part about it for me is that I can TOTALLY relate and see myself doing some of the odd things he does - of course they heighten it all and make it totally bizarre but still... I think there's a Sheldon in all of us.

That trailer was amazing, however I sort of loled when Draco said: "I have to do this" (or whatever it was - it just really didn't seem that... emotional to me)

LOVE LOVE LOVE your icon!!!!

and even though I live in the UK, I'm afraid I can't really help with Glasgow...I've never been! :S But yay! I totally didn't know you were going to uni there? I might be able to help with anthing generally uk though! haaa i'm so unhelpful, sozzle! :]

It's a very adorable icon *nods*

Hehe. Totally no problem. And don't worry, I've sort of toned down the whole 'I'm going to uni!' lately because I was afraid I was repeating myself much too often. Is there anything that might be helpful to know about the UK when I get there? How does it look in terms of jobs at fast food restaurants etc? I want to know how much I'll have to loan from the state before I go :P

Eee! i've been looking for one like it for ages! He was SO funny on never mind the buzzcocks! complete legend!!

Hmm, I think you should probs be able to get something, if it's like the other uni's i've looked at, it'll probably have a job centre that can help you, or at least there'll be loads in the city, but also the uni will have LOADS of jobs going like working in the student union bar, in the shop etc. I've heard those jobs are good because the uni is sympathetic with working hours around lectures and when it's exam periods etc.

I have quite a few Josh at Buzzcocks icons that I found through [ profile] __grobanites as well as [ profile] fandom_icons, I think. He was extremely funny and I love how Simon was all like: "That's how we promote albums here." and Josh's speech "From Josh Groban: Stay away." was completely priceless. One of these days, I shall put it on my ipod :D :D

I'll keep an eye out for job when I get there then :D :D

Yeah, I did have a look for some there but must have been feeling a bit lazy I think!! I will deffo scout one out though, it's a must have! :D I personally liked the thing with his hand...where he was talking with it...and was like "Oooooh Joshy" LOL! Random! I totally can't remember why he was doing it!? I blatently need to watch it again!

and yes!! hopefully you'll be able to find something during Fresher's week?

Oh, TBBT is great stuff. Sheldon is indeed such love. :)

Date: 2009-04-19 09:40 am (UTC)

Indeed. And the most hilarious part about it all is that I totally relate to everything he does, on some level ♥

"Oh Mario... if only I could control everyone the way I control you... Hop, you little plumber! Hop, hop, hop!"

Yeah, you can totally see how he could justify everything he does, and how it makes perfect sense to him.

You watching BBT has me very, very happy. It is the only sitcom that I actively follow and love.

How can you not love the show? It's pure gold! And with quotes like: "Oh Mario... if only I could control everyone the way I control you... Hop, you little plumber! Hop, hop, hop!" and "I accept your premise but I reject your conclusion." plus eighty million more, how can you not love it? It's pure gold ♥ and I kind of ship Penny and Sheldon a little...

They speak my language: geek. I would honestly kill for a group of friends like them.

And I openly ship Sheldon and Penny. I think they are so right for each other. Plus, soft kitty.

"... little ball of furr."

When I rewatched that episode with my sister, she totally glanced at me weirdly when I knew the lyric.

I know what you mean, I speak geek too, so it's so much fun to watch and I can definitely relate to everything they're doing.

I really want to do a Sheldon/Penny fic but I don't know... I've never written fics for comedy series before.

Date: 2009-04-19 06:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Yeah, Sheldon/Penny looks like a bitch to write. I mean, it may be much easier to write from Penny's POV, but I don't know. I'm just content to read the fic, so if you write it I'd gladly read it.

Oh my gosh, your icon is beautiful. :D :D I thought that episode was lovely. "... and I thought 'loom!'" :D

We'll see if I ever write anything :P

Totally know what you mean. One of my favourite quotes (I have so many of them!) is "Oh Mario... if only I could control everyone the way I control you... Hop, you little plumber! Hop, hop, hop!"

And your icon is awesome *nods*

Sheldon delivers most of the awesome I think. The whole 'sarcasm' section is my favourite.

I loved that Sheldon icon the moment I saw it :D

Haha. Yeah, I am. I firmed my offer not too long ago and I applied for accommodation yesterday :D

Indeed she shall :P But we've applied for different accommodations so thankfully we won't live together (even if that would be nice in its own way)

I see. Looking forward to having some alone time, at last? ;)

Date: 2009-04-19 05:54 pm (UTC)

Well, if it goes like planned, i will share accommodation so... maybe not as much alone time as I'd like :P But still some non-twin time.

I've always wanted a twin sister as a kid. Guess it has both its ups and downs!

Although it would be pretty cool to swap classes at least once in the beginning of the term, especially if you've applied for different courses. :D
