Happy New Year's everyone! I'm not fond of New Year's because I think it's a generally dumb holiday (it's been a year since that arbitrarily chosen day we celebrated last year! Hurrah!), but I have made the resolution to stop being so damn lazy at night and actually brush my fucking teeth every night, which half the time I don't do because my teeth "don't feel dirty" and I'm a disgusting slob. It's gross. It's so gross. I need to get on that. Though I failed with the one night I had to start, because I closed my eyes for two seconds waiting for a download to finish and next thing I know my mom's come down at 5 AM to turn off the light in the living room because I fell asleep (in a really uncomfortable position). So yeah, teeth brushing did not happen so much. I have asked my various animals their new year's resolutions as well. Charlie vows to chew ALL the cardboard, Gus wants to become a big boy and explore brand new couches that he has yet to poop on, and Ella wants her belly rubbed for at least three hours a day. I think that they'll probably all be relatively successful, too.

I've also been watching How I Met Your Mother with Evan (twin brother, for you newbies), who's home from college, and really, really wanted to marathon it. So obvs, I am pimping the show out like whoa, because at least once a day I make a verbal How I Met Your Mother reference and everyone in my family stares at me weird. Mostly it's great, except for the fact that Evan is romantically retarded. Like, I love him, but he really, really is. (Which is why I always use him as an argument for Bradley/Colin, because if even he looks at two dudes and thinks they're fucking/want to be, he's usually right.) I could bore you with lots of examples but I will just settle on this: we're almost done with Season 1 and Evan still thinks that Ted and Robin are The Most Perfect For Each Other Couple Ever. (And yes, he still thought that after seeing Zip Zip Zip. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN'S BRAIN.)

My reaction was roughly as follows:



I never re-watch any episodes past Mary the Paralegal because it's all Ted and Robin getting together (yuck) and Marshall and Lily temporarily breaking up (MY HEART IS BROKEN) it's just like why would I ever do that to myself? And I can just tell he's going to be cheering and beaming. WHILE MARSHALL AND LILY BREAK UP. E TU, BRUTE?

Also, I am concerned for that boy's romantic future.

And in conclusion, link dump! The... whatever it's called, that row where you can drag links for quick reference, is getting crowded, and it's entirely filled with links that are in regards to Men I Find Ridiculously Endearing And Delightful. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO DISCUSS THE FOLLOWING:
  • It sounds really lame, but honestly, if you have ever been a fan of Monsieur Cumberbatch, you should listen to him "sing" Candle in the Wind. OH CUMBERSNATCH, MY LOVE FOR YOU IS LIKE THE OCEAN.
  • I'm starting to be seriously concerned that there's some sort of computer chip implanted in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's brain that compels him to be overwhelmingly, ridiculously endearing at exactly the right intervals such that I will become incapable of escaping from the growing chasm-like crush I have on him. This morning such an event occurred when he recommended this fabulous article by Oliver Sacks on how your brain never stops growing so you should never stop learning. I am honestly stumped by what I find the most appealing about this; the fact that he reads the New York Times op-eds, the fact that he reads and knows who OLIVER SACKS is (aka: the coolest/only scientist I legit care about), or the fact that he's all fangirly over lifetime education. EITHER WAY IT IS MIGHTY HARD TO TYPE 'ROUND THEM HEARTS IN MY EYES.
  • Speaking of endearing menfolk, everyone who failed to tell me about this Alex O'Loughlin interview is fired from life.



    HE JUGGLES. AND DISCUSSES OPEN HEART SURGERY. AND IS ADORABLE. I CAN'T EVEN.
  • Hey everyone! Let's all go objectify sulky bb Scott Caan! Okay!
  • I would attempt to explain the glory of the following quote by Tom Hardy, in which he describes his strangest dream, but I cannot do it justice, so let's just all read it together:
    "I'm on stage at a Star Trek convention, and I'm wearing my Shinzon makeup and costume from Star Trek: Nemesis. Sitting next to me are Leo DiCaprio dressed as Captain Kirk, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Mr. Spock, Cillian Murphy as McCoy and Ellen Page as Uhura, and we’re all answering audience member questions about Inception. Suddenly, a Klingon in the audience stands up and shoots Leo in the chest, and the whole room erupts into chaos. Ellen shouts for Cillian to do something, but he tells her that he's an actor, not a doctor, so she looks at me and begs me to help, and I look at Leo and he's clearly dying, so I say I'll do what I can. I grab a ball-point pen and a microphone cord and I'm about to perform surgery when I realize I have no idea what I’m doing. Luckily, that's when I wake up."

    Alright, if you're not attracted to Tom Hardy, that's fine. I'm not attracted to him in an "I would tap that" way so much as a "I want to draw you and stare at your face FOREVER because it's sort of aesthetically fascinating". I get it! But if you don't find him ridiculously endearing after reading that, I despair for you slightly. His brain is a magnificent place.
  • HAPPY (BELATED) TWETNY-FIFTH BIRTHDAY, COLIN MORGAN, YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD. I was discussing Colin's birthday/the inevitable drunken voicemails he probably gets, including the one from Bradley, with [livejournal.com profile] myfoolisheart, and I was sort of amusing myself by writing them when I realized that it is shockingly easy for me to write Bradley James drunk. I attribute this on the fact that he already has almost no brain-to-mouth filter while sober.

    I MISS YOU, BRADLEY AND COLIN.

I've pretty much decided to stick with it for him and Jason Dohring, especially because it's only one season. O'Loughlin's mastered the soulful eyes, no joke there. ;D

I know I'm one of the few who doesn't want to jump Tom Hardy, but 1) that dream is fantastic and makes him far more interesting to me than he was and 2) I saw him on a Kleenex advert the other day, crying over some movie he was watching, and I found him strangely adorable.

I think there's something wrong with me, because guys most of fandom deems "the adorable one" (Colin, JGL) I want to jump their bones, but "the hot one" (Bradley, Tom) I just go OH MY GOD, YOU ARE THE CUTEST THING ALIVE. COME HERE AND LET ME SQUASH YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FACE.

I mean, I want to squash both their faces, preferably together, but if I had to choose "the cute one" and "the hot one", my opinion would not match up with most other people's.

Omg I keep forgetting that this Tom Hardy dude is ~that guy~ from ~that terrible Star Trek movie~, but every time I recall I remember this girl whose LJ I stumbled across once -- the whole thing was like one big ode to him in that movie. I am pretty sure she was the only person on the entire internet who cared. I think she was in the 11-14 range, and god knows where she is now, but I kind of hope she is still tangentially part of fandom because talk about getting the last laugh, she could totally be like "GET OFF MY LAWN, EVERYONE, I'VE LOVED HIM TRULY MADLY DEEPLY SINCE 2002!"

IKR? When I first heard he was in a Star Trek movie I was like OKAY I HAVE WATCHED THAT AND I WOULD HAVE NOTICED HIM EVEN BETWEEN ALL THE HOT MENS, and then I remembered that other Star Trek movies existed besides that one.

Man, I love those people. I would say I'm one of them for JGL, since I've nursed a crush on him since 10 Things I Hate About You that was sort of nascent until he started being EVERYWHERE at which point it erupted from my chest like that scene from Alien, except there are some creepy people who lusted after him in his 3rd Rock days. I don't even compare with those crazies.

Though yeah, it's overrated and I'm glad I finally realised that. I just use it as an excuse to get drunk :D

Oh dear. That's a lot :D I hope we'll get to read them someday.
I know the feeling, though. I listened to a lot of new music a friend gave me the other day and woah, it's inspiring like hell. New ideas pop up in my head all the time and I try to scribble down as much as possible, but I never get around to writing it.

Happy new year to you too!

HIMYM is perfect for any and every occasion. I miss the days when I used to marathon it for hours and hours in uni instead of studying for exams. Good times.

And Tom Hardy is one of those folks who I do not find attractive in an "I'd tap that" way at all (or well, maybe a little bit when he was in The Virgin Queen and that alone) but I would love to sit and have tea and long rambly conversations with him forever. Have you come across that interview of his where he talks about waking up in some random place naked with a cat, a dude, and a gun? He delights me to no end.

I have! He's just so silly. I'm not sure what I'd like to do with him given the opportunity (babysit? Play with his dog? IDK!) but I am happy just knowing someone as ridiculous as him exists in the universe.

Hahahhahah, no that wasn't a fic as much as just having fun musing on how drunkenly he'd slur out something along the lines of "Mate. MAAAAAAAAAAAATE. Col. Colin. COLINNNNN. I just... I love you, man. You're my mate. My maaaaaaaaaaaate. Hahahhah, Colin."

See, here's the thing with me and Tom Hardy. I want to jump him like a pogo stick but I also want to bake him cookies and rock him gently to sleep at night while he tells me shit like that and about how much he loves women's shoes and waking up with a dude, a cat and a gun.

TELL ME MORE, TOM HARDY. TELL ME MOOORE.
