-I've been back since last morning, and I still haven't gotten around to properly catching up with the flist (or all the TV I missed, or reading a Dance For Dragons for that matter)-you people post a lot! Anyway, the holiday was awesome (given that I stayed almost two weeks more than I planned to, it was bound to be), and I might make a holiday pic post later, provided everyone is not getting tired of those.
-For those of you following the kitten saga: it's been resolved, in the best way possible. mimine
had a agreed to watch it while I was away, and sometime between my return date constantly being pushed forward and the kitten deciding to take a jump from the second floor (it's fine now-and I'm half convinced the little Slytherin feline did it on purpose) the two of them bonded-long story short, any of you curious for updates, check out mimine
's lj, because it's her cat now. When she told me the decision over the phone, I kept grinning like an idiot for the rest of the evening, and telling half the island the good news (“My friend took the cat! And I'll get to visit it whenever I want!”). Unsurprisingly, the reaction of the random assortment of people I shared this news with (sailors, bartenders and cafe waiters-I was in that island for a long
time) seemed to be perplexed indifference. NGL, that's when I missed fandom and its cat obsession the most. :P
-I'm kind of enjoying Torchwood this season, in a non-ironic way even. I like the new cast additions, and some of the most LOLtastic “acting” moments from original cast members are thankfully missing.
-I really, really want to read some newer HP fic (considering how out of touch I've been with HP fandom, “newer” can mean up to 2-3 years), but don't even know where to start. I'd appreciate any recs you have-I prefer Snarry and H/D (and Snape/Hermione, but I've given up finding decent fic of the pairing), but would love to check out some het, femslash and other pairings as well, preferrably not involving Weasleys or Marauders (but I can make exceptions for really good fic).
-Eta: Almost forgot! The icon meme, because it's fun:
1. Reply to this post with “CONVERSE”, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee. ( icon babbling )
