A sluggish Sunday

I’m not entirely sure why but whenever I open up the ‘post an entry’ page, I have the strangest urge to start my posts with a David Hewlett style “Hello internets, tis I!” greeting – you’ve seen his vlogs and know what I mean, right?

Let’s see, whats the latest in the Land Of Llama. I did not sleep well last night. Or, at all, really. I went to bed at normal time around 10:30-11:00 or so, gave up and got up around 03:20, was still awake at about 05:30, fell asleep finally just after that and woke up again around 09:00. I’ve been feeling all fuzzy and thick headed all day and yeah my Sunday has been powered by Red Bull.

I spent a lazy morning in bed getting a new layout up here (what do you think of it?), reading blogs and listening to music. I discovered a wonderful playlist on Spotify – yup a 9 hour, 161 song playlist of all 4 seasons worth of soundtrack… What can I say? The show and it’s music has become such a guilty pleasure of mine. I’m about 3/4 of the way through S2 at the moment.
As with all things country music related, I blame Gary Quinn

I tried to take a nap this afternoon but I’m pretty sure it failed. I genuinely don’t know if I fell asleep or not, which was the strangest sensation ever. I felt even fuzzier than I did before I crawled into bed and oh the thumpy head. I dosed it with some caffeine, sugar, chicken pot pie and baked beans then had a lovely soak in a hot bubble bath, reading Poppy Z Brite – Lost Souls and listening to The Life Of Riley.

Now, I’ve taken some painpills and sleeping pills. I’m back on the Nashville playlist. I’m reading a DK Publishing astronomy book called The Planets: The Definitive Visual Guide To Our Solar System. And I’m futzing around on LJ and DW.

How’s your Sunday been?

30 Days Of Llama – Day 3

Mental health wise I’m not doing so well right now. I’ve been very stressed the last couple of weeks – work’s been insane and poor Lotte needed quite a lot of repairs doing on her. I’m starting to come out the other side but I’m still feeling quite… meh

I’m going to move swiftly on to day 3 of this meme which is Your favorite television program

See. Kneejerk reaction is Stargate SG1. Followed by Stargate Atlantis. Because LOVE. I think I’ve covered plenty of times how much that show’s helped me over the last couple years
The sheer amount of love I have for Jack and Daniel and Sam and Teal’c and Hammond and Fraiser and Mitchell and Vala and Sheppard and McKay and Beckett and Lorne…

But then I factor in the fact I’ve been doing an NCIS rewatch and falling in love with Gibbs & DiNozzo & Ducky all over again. Throw in LA and NO and they’re the shows I’m the closest to being completely up-to-date on.

There’s also the new shows that I’ve fallen for this year. Lucifer. Lethal Weapon. MacGyver. Pure Genius. Bull.

And we can’t forget the returning loves. The Librarians. Bones. Castle. Criminal Minds. Supernatural. Arrow. Agents Of SHIELD. iZombie. The Mentalist. Killjoys. Dark Matter. Saving Hope. Hawaii Five-0. Fringe. Haven. Elementary.

Of course then you have all All Time Favourites, the ones I always go back to no matter how many times I’ve watched them. Buffy. CSI. Charmed. Dukes Of Hazzard. Sanctuary. MacGyver. Leverage. White Collar. House. Farscape. Firefly. Star Trek.

The last things I watched were Criminal Minds, Ransom, Quantico, Pure Genius, Proof and Once Upon A Time
Right now I’m about to press play on the 1×01 of Rectify.

… I believe this post is mostly known as ‘Cassie watches far too much on TV’.

30 days of llama, movies & tv

30 Days Of Llama – Day 2

Day 02 — Your favorite movie

Star Wars.

That seems a bit of a short answer though, doesn’t it?

Star Wars is one of the first films I remember watching. I clearly recall sitting in my parents living room watching the medal ceremony on Yavin IV. I remember playing Star Wars in the playground and loving the fact that being the girl still meant I got to be awesome and help save the day. I remember getting to see the trilogy on the big screen when the remastered came out.. and just seeing that scroll and hearing that music actually reduced me to tears. I still get moved with fannish glee every time.

I even like the prequel trilogy. Never got the memo that I wasn’t supposed to.

Other top movie loves include Jurassic Park, Stigmata, Empire Records, Velvet Goldmine, Resident Evil, MCU, Stargate, the SG1 movies, Notting Hill, Mission Impossible, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers.

I have serious love for really bad horror/sci-fi movies. SyFy movies. Things like Sharknado, Voodoo Academy, Mega Snake, Boa Vs Python, Iron Invader, Ferocious Planet, Arctic Blast, Lost Treasures Of The Grand Canyon…

I also have a soft spot for – and I can’t believe I’m going to admit this outloud – but Hallmark movies. Murder She Baked, Garage Sale Mystery, Wedding Bells, Irresistible Bluberry Farm, The Bouquet, Growin The Big One…

And yes, I’m aware my taste in movies sucks but I enjoy them damnit!

30 Days Of Llama – Day One

In an effort to post more, to get myself back into the routine of posting – and to give me something to post about, I’m going down the route of one of those ’30 day memes’… so here goes!

Day 01 — Your favorite song

Why do these things always have to start with ‘your favourite song’?

Um. OK. So for all time favourite song it’s toss up between two for me:
Meat Loaf – Rock & Roll Dreams
Goo Goo Dolls – Slide

what you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful
Slide is the song that has saved my life on many occasions. I’ve been lucky enough to tell the guys how much it means to me and what it’s done for me. I cried while telling them and Johnny just pulls me into this hug, says “don’t cry doll” and tells me how much he appreciated me telling them and it felt like he cared
I still cry every single damn time I hear the song. And I want to get that lyric tattooed, but I don’t know where

You’re never alone cause you can put on the phones and let the drummer tell your heart what to do
Rock & Roll Dreams… it just sums up how powerful and moving and evocative music can be. How there’s always a song for your moment, for your mood, for what you’re feeling and that it’s ok to let it sweep you away.

Now, my two current favourite songs are
Lindsey Stirling – Roundtable Rival
Delta Rae – Dance In The Graveyard
(OK so they’re not necessarily current songs – but they’re songs I’m really loving a lot right now)

For something completely different again, the song I’ve had stuck in my head for the last like week or so is Miley Cyrus – See You Again

And yes I’m completely aware that my music taste is utterly batshit LMAO

I am an excited llama!

I am a very excited llama.

Amanda Tapping was announced for Collectormania a while back. That in itself was enough to trigger utter glee, because… hi! Tickets purchased. Lots of joy and squee.

Then last night, Michael Shanks was also announced for Collectormania. There are no words in the English language – or any others – that can adequately express the sheer level of fangirl that triggered off. According to Dragon, I was very high pitched and squeaky and bouncing.
Michael is the only one of the original SG1 I haven’t met and Daniel is my favourite character and I just… I… words fail. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

As if that wasn’t enough, Richard Dean Anderson was announced for London Film & Comic Con. LFCC in 2015 was panic attack inducing for me and I spent most of the event hiding either in Pizza Express or outside because yeaaah that wasn’t fun. We seem to have tickets, however… And I figure hey, I’m a lot more balanced and I have the propanolol if need be.

Jack! Sam! DANIEL!
It is apparently a very good year to be a Stargate fan in the UK!

life

Yeah, going back to work pretty much killed me this week. However, there have been no disasters and I’m starting to feel like I’m actually getting caught up on things, so there’s that. Hurrah. My routine is getting pretty settled and I’m feeling positive. 🙂

I’m also doing pretty well towards most of my January goals: I avoided the vending machine at work all week, I’ve been drinking at least 1.5l water a day, I only went to Greggs once and I didn’t order in pizza.
I lost 4lb – my weight is down to 207. *cheers*

I also found my fitbit and charger and charged my fitbit and got a baseline of my food and walking over last week. Which means I’ve been able to give myself a goal for the coming week of walking 6050 steps a day or 2.5 miles a day. I’m aiming towards a daily calorie intake of 1300.

I’ve also been writing. As well as that John solo fic, I’ve written like 3k of Jack/Cam and I found and have been editing an old unfinished CW RPS AU fic.

It’s been a good week! 🙂
