RL and a meme

So, by and large, I'm not a huge facebook fan. I have one, but mainly to keep up with RL friends that I don't see that often. I certainly don't spend as much time on it as LJ. Yesterday, though, I checked it, and I had a friend request from someone I didn't recognize. That's happened before, and it's usually the friend of a friend, which is fine. Anyway, checked my inbox and there was a message from the same person. Turns out, we went to elementary school together (my grandmother even babysat her). She moved when we were in 2nd grade, so I haven't seen her in almost 20 years (I've never felt so old). We were really good friends, but lost touch (we were in 2nd grade!), and I've always wondered how she was and what she was doing. :) I'm surprised, but thrilled to get to talk to her again.

Comment on this post. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so others can play along.

Snow!

I'm at my computer, staring out the window, watching it snow! :D

It's been seven or eight years since it snowed here. I'm bouncing around like a five-year-old. *squees*

*happy sigh* So pretty.

I have an awful headache and really just want to go home, but everyone else is out sick, so I sort of feel like someone should be here. It's pretty quiet, though. I haven't even answered the phone yet this morning. I'm giving it until noon and then calling it quits. ETA: Home and feeling much better after lunch and some Doctor Who. ;)

So, yes, that's just a side note, the actual reason for this post (Do I need one? Do I have one?) is the awesomeness of fandoms colliding. While wandering around youtube last night, I stumbled across this short film (behind the cut for your flist convenience):

Paradisco )

Anthony Rapp (Rent) is in it, and Jerome Pradon, who played Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar (2000). It's a short, gay French musical, by all accounts. I didn't watch it all, just skimmed it for the good parts because A) it's in French (Anthony has a few English lines) and B) the subtitles are in Spanish. Between the two, I understood just enough to sort of follow the plot. ;) But I don't care! *flails* Anthony and Jerome in a gay, French musical!

Bonus: The cast of the short film singing 'Seasons of Love' )

Meme

Association meme from [livejournal.com profile] hammil77

Ask me to associate you with five things. When I do this, post this meme and an explanation of your interest in those five things in your journal.

My five from [livejournal.com profile] hammil77 were:

1. Gay cinema: I think it all started with Get Real. I saw that movie before I had an inkling what slash was or anything like that, so after some research online, I started sort of putting together a list of GTMs to see, getting recommendations from my flist, [livejournal.com profile] madame_d and [livejournal.com profile] matan4il were especially helpful in creating/adding to my original list. :) I've lost count, but I've easily seen over 200 and have many more to go.

2. fiction: I haven't had as much time recently to read/write as much as I'd like to, but I'm trying! Fanfic was one of the first things that drew me to LJ, there was so much wonderful fic out there, and LJ was the easiest way to find it. I really enjoy writing, and even though I've only been actively involved in a handful of fandoms, I've met some wonderful people through fiction. *looks pointedly at flist*

3. Viggorli: I've really only had two great fandom loves in my life. ;) The first was Savage Garden, and the second was Viggorli. I'd managed to avoid the whole LOTRs thing completely until [livejournal.com profile] madame_d sent me a link with viggorli pictures in it. By that weekend, I'd seen all three movies (RoTK was in theaters at the time) and was reading as much fic as I could get my hands on.

4. John Barrowman: This links in with #1. I saw De-Lovely, and was completely blown away by his rendition of "Night & Day", found out his name, and filed it away for future use. When my flist started buzzing about Doctor Who, I didn't really think much of it until John's name came up in connection with it. So that's actually why I started watching the show. I probably, sadly, wouldn't have given it another thought if John hadn't been in it.

5. Winter: Winter is my absolute favorite time of year, which is odd because I'm always freezing to death. There's the obvious, Christmas and the holidays and just all around good stuff in winter, but I think living where it never snows and people have been known to wear shorts on Christmas Day, the whole postcard image of winter is sort of magical.

Thanks.

I just wanted to thank everyone for the birthday wishes. :D I had a wonderful day and you all made it that much more special. I think I thanked everyone individually, but if I happened to miss someone, feel free to poke me.

Those of you from [livejournal.com profile] rahmbamarama will appreciate this the most, I think. My brother gave me a set of Obama trading cards which, of course, included one of Rahm. I haven't had a chance to really look through them yet, but they're interesting.

Other than that, it was just a small, low-key birthday with my family. Oh, and I apparently won the birthday drawing on my local radio station, but someone told me, I didn't hear it myself, and I haven't called to confirm yet. But still. :)

Anyway, big thanks to my flist. *hugs*
