ceitfianna: (Dean time rambles on)
I've made it through another week of classes, now I just have work left. Things are going pretty good this week, things are coming up but I think I can handle them. The weather here is horribly cold but the sidewalks and streets are passable. I've noticed that the cold has made my resolutions to eat better not really hold but I have tasty things to cook when I have time so soon there will be sweet potato soup or eggplant curry. Tonight when I head home in about an hour and twenty minutes from this long shift, I'll have leftover pizza and that suits me just fine. Life is good.

I'm almost finished reading The Queen of Attolia and I love it and will pick up the next book in the series on Friday after work. That same day I'll be trying to figure out if I really will graduate, the online stuff made me nervous. I think I should be okay and SI is helpful and I think when I have my break at the end of February, I'll get into gear with job stuff. I know I should start now but I'm scared because there's just so much to do and I'm not sure where to start. For now, I'm focusing on having a good semester, not getting sick and doing a good job on all the things I'm doing.

The icon meme popped up on my flist again thanks to [livejournal.com profile] katernater, if you'd like me to pick five of your icons so you can write about them comment and tell me.

This is my cat face icon for when friends need online fuzz therapy. I used to have a tabby cat and this image makes me think of her and miss her.

Becoming Jane is one of my favorite movies because I adore Jane Austen and the movie captured all the reasons I love her. This is her with Tom Lefroy and I love the look they're sharing of yes, we fit together.

I'm learning to be a librarian and I realized that I needed a good reading/library icon. I found this one and went yes, that's me when I was little and someday I'll be that girl's librarian.

Band of Brothers is an amazing mini-series and someplace I found icons with Monty Python quotes and I grew up on Monty Python, so I knew I needed this icon. Sadly I don't actually use it very often but it makes me grin.

Due to classes and getting confused by the plot, I haven't actually watched Supernatural in a while, but its a show I like. One of my favorite parts about it is the brothers' relationship and this icon captures a great moment of things working. Maybe I should rewatch some of the earlier seasons.

I don't have class this evening but I have a group meeting that starts an hour before I have class. So I'm currently on campus and about to do a meme and then possibly go down into town and buy the cutest boots. They're ankle boots that lace up and so look sort of old fashioned but also have a side zip. I have horribly narrow feet and high arches and I put these on and felt supported and elegant. So I'm hoping that my size is still there I can buy them and throw out my old shoes that have holes in the soles.

Also, I will put up a holiday card address list soon, probably this weekend. I'm so sorry that I never sent out those letters I meant to when I moved in but in exchange there will be cards with my pictures of Ann Arbor on them. This first semester kind of snuck up on me and stole all my time, but soon I'll be registering for next semester and this one is down to just a few weeks left and papertime.

Now the wonderful five question meme from [livejournal.com profile] newredshoes

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
Update your journal with the answers to the questions
Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

1) Recast your favorite TV show, book or movie with BoB actors. Who's who?
This one makes me giggle so I'm going to do Robin Hood, book/version in my head. James McAvoy as Will, Damien Lewis as Robin, Cudlitz as Little John, Rick Gomez as Allan a Dale, the lovely woman in Bastogne as Marian, Matthew Settle as Sir Guy since he can do badass and scary, Dale Dye as King Richard and I don't want to cast any of them as the Sheriff so I won't.

2) Are there any hobbies you want to pick up? Arts, crafts, athletics, languages, anything like that?
Oh yes to this one. I'm at this awesome university and have no time. I would love to do dancing again and theater, I miss it so much. I'm writing a paper on storytelling in children's libraries and it makes me miss performing for anyone, there's just a rush that you get in front of an audience that I haven't had in far too long.

3) What are your thoughts on tattoos? Do you have any or would you get any?
I think tattoos are absolutely beautiful but at this point in my life, I'm not sure about getting one. One of the issues is that my father really dislikes tattoos on people and I respect his opinion though I think they can be rather amazing. So for now I'm going to enjoy all the lovely ones I see and have characters who have tattoos like Tiwa.

4) What is one thing you'd like to see or experience that's really outside the ordinary? Like, for me, I've been dying to go whale-watching and see the Northern Lights since I was 5.
I went whale watching in New Zealand, its a wonderful thing to do just it helps if the sea isn't too rough that day. Hmm, I'm not quite sure of this. I feel like the answer is right there. I think performing in a professional storyteller's gathering and working at a Rennaissance Faire, they're maybe not terribly far out there but they kind of feel like it at the moment.

5) If your life was a book cover, what would be on it?
A photograph of a map with lots of things stuck on it or a road winding and wandering through some hills.
ceitfianna: (my muses)
I just spotted this meme over on [livejournal.com profile] vivien529 and I like its so I'm going to do it.

Its really cold and snowy here and I only went outside to try and dig out my car before giving up, the cold won. My list is slightly random since I'm just going off of the favorites that comes to mind.

1. Post a list of fandoms.
2. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each fandom.
3. When guessed, bold the fandom, enter in who got it and a sentence about why you like the character/person.

1-Robin Hood: Will, oh I've always loved Will because of his loyalty and his temper and how he's always struggling to do all he can for Robin and Seraph knows me for this one.
3-Harry Potter Ron has always been my favorite because he's trying so hard to make his own way while still being a good friend. I love his and Hermione's romance and friendship because it feels so real and painful. [livejournal.com profile] fightingthecage got this one.
4-Chronicles of Narnia Tumnus, because he's far more complicated than he seems and is doing what he can for his home even though he wishes he could do more. Seraph got this one too.
5-Lord of the Rings Faramir, I adored Faramir in the books, partly due to the kind of Robin Hood resonance but also he's a poet and just a good man. Then I fell in love with him again in the movies, he and Eowyn are my ship for the series-Seraph got this one too.
6-Supernatural Dean, because he's the big brother and he reminds me of my older brother in the way that he'll do whatever it takes for Sam. Also I love his tough guy act and just want to hug him a lot. Seraph also got this one.
7-The West Wing
8-3:10 to Yuma
9-Band of Brothers
10-Pushing Daisies
ceitfianna: (dream of a fantail)
Today's been a bit weird since its grey and icky out there and so I slept in late after having a weird dream about New Zealand. Then I woke up missing my flatmate from my first year in Wellington, Phil who I've already written about. I think its just the regret of not knowing what might have happened between us that gets me.

So I took a nice walk into town and had lunch and read more of the Bill and Babe book which I'm really loving. Oh and this reminds me that I have made some icons and should actually post them at some point. Can anyone recommend a good way to do this?

My icons. )
ceitfianna: (long road)
I just did a round of emailing and calling to various staffing agencies in Pennsylvania and connections in everything from private schools to libraries. Now to see what happens and go out into the grey weather to get something for lunch and read some more of Bill and Babe's book which is wonderful.

They're making me want to move back to Philly even sooner because they sound like home to me. Technically I grew up in the Delaware County but Philly's my city when it comes right down to it.
ceitfianna: (long road)
I've been kind of putting off doing this one since like a lot of people this past year seemed to have more downs than ups for me, but I'm really hoping the new one is better. Tonight my plans are simple, make myself French Toast and do some lovely threading.

A long year )
ceitfianna: (beach scene)
Today there's a really crazy wind going and I was just going to drive to the library and grocery store to get stuff for the French Toast I'm making when I find the road closed. Turns out that Irish Eyes, one of the pubs on the canal is on fire, it was last on fire two years ago.

Overall, its really kind of sad since I went there with Di when she came to visit and its just a nice place. Hopefully the wind won't make it too much worse and I was able to get what I needed at the little market though its not quite as nice bread as I wanted.

The sad part is that now I have to wait a few days before I can get the Bill and Babe book because I think the library's going to be closed.

ETA: My Mom who was out picking up her car after it was serviced just picked up the Bill and Babe book for me.
ceitfianna: (disney maid marian fangirl)
Band of Brothers is playing on the History Channel, guys, this makes me happy even though I now have the dvd, its just that wonderful feeling of yeah other people get how great this is.

[livejournal.com profile] arkadyevna Little John arrived today and he's wonderful, thank you so much. I also discovered that Slumdog Millionaire is playing at my nearby theater so I might go see that this weekend. Life is good.
