Slight update thingy

Meh, I'm in an apathetic mood >.<

but I thought I'd post a tiny update just for kicks.

I'm not really in a writing mood at the moment, so my fics have been slightly (but not really) put on hold. If inspiration hits with the newestsga_flashfic prompt, or something, I'll hop to it but for now...meh XD

I don't really like where the third chapter is of New Tricks, so I am stalling on it. I think it really all boils down to my fear of writing Rodney. I'm really afraid I'll write him bad. I know I've managed decently with small snippets and one shots of snark, but I'm afraid when I try a bigger piece with him that it will fall flat. Guess I'll have to wait for the perfect snarky mood to finish the chapter.

I blame my sudden dry spell on the fact that school starts back tomorrow (T_T yay), and the sudden slight infatuation with Robert Downey Jr I've found myself in due to rewatching Iron Man, going to Tropic Thunder (which was great XD)  and being introduced to a gem of a movie called "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" (which my icon came from, and I am suddenly quoting/squeeing over way more than I probably should)

admit it. The man is hot. So you can understand if I've been a bit distracted ^__^

As far as my SGA muse goes...well, I was hoping "Ghost in the Machine" would bring some inspiration back...but honestly I just didn't really enjoy the episode. Plus, the title made me instantly think of friendshipper's "Ghost in the Machine" which was the fic that got me into the whole SGA obsession shibang in the first place! (seriously...go read it ....NOW.)

Looks like I'm going to have to rely on SGA Big Bang to get my muse back in action. I haven't had time to sit down with some of the fics, so the only fic I've read so far was the one I Beta'ed called "The Most Unlikely of Couples"  (which was a very enjoyable fic of Teyla x Carson. Very realistically approached. I would never have imagined these two characters meshing well, but the author (secondalto)
made it flow nicely). My next fic to read will probably be kristen999's Imago:Tao of John, since it's the only fic that I read the preview of, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'll probably make a new post after I've read most (or all) of the fics, just to sum up my thoughts on them. The author's all worked so hard and I can't wait to dive in!

Tagged by trystings! XD

Rules of the meme

A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs & replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag 8 people to do this quiz. These people must state who they were tagged by & cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

1. How has LJ changed your life?
Most of my free time is spent here reading fanfics right now. But it's also helped me be creative ^_^

2. What do you do before bedtime?

2. What was your lucky moment this month?

2. What did you eat for breakfast?
Nothing yet! And I'm starving! ;____; (which is probably why it's on my mind lol)

3. What did you do this weekend?
Went shopping for some new clothes before school starts. Tried and failed to find some used textbooks, growled in frustration at spending $150 on one book at the college bookstore....

4. What is the city of your dreams and why?
Vancouver....because they shoot SGA there? XD

umm, probably Balogna, Italy. Living near so much culture and history; it's something my home definitely lacks...

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?

6. What is one of your favorite words?
at the moment? Breakfast!! >.<

7. Do you trust easily?
No, I'm the most paranoid person on the planet. My friends bug me about it all the time....

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
Probably nothing. If they are happier with the person they are with, then I'm not going to get between them. Plenty of fish in the sea and all that ^_^

9. What is your favorite breakfast food?
.....this question just had to be on here, didn't it? It's taunting me!! lol

Ham, Egg, and Cheese Croissant from Burger King. They are very good...and very bad for you. lol I don't get to have them often, but yummy X3

10. What is your best quality?
I don't take things to seriously, try to look at the big picture and don't sweat the small stuff. And I think I help my friends and family do the same.

11. Is being tagged fun?
I’m copying </a></b></a>with_apostrophe's answer. I feel the exact same way! LOL Yes, and no. Depends if I want to do the meme. I prefer being tagged than tagging - I always feel awkward tagging people, as if I'm imposing, and yet I don't think people who tag me are imposing on me. Weird huh? (No)

~That was trystings' answer, and I pretty much am the same way XD

but an occasional tag with something like this is fun. I was once a member of a site that was obsessed with things like this though. You would get three or four a day that were much longer than this (like up to 100 questions). That got old kinda fast...

12. How do you see yourself?

13. Who are currently the most important people to you?
My family and friends

14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
Nice and sharing a lot of the same opinions I have on SGA episodes lol. I don't know that much about her yet, but I look forward to getting to know her better ^_^

15. What would you do if you won the lottery?
Finally fix the financial problems that all the people around me have been plagued with lately. It's stealing all of their happiness. And when they are happy I am.... un-annoyed XD

16. How many children do you want to have, if any?

16. Would you rather be in a happy marriage and poor or a bad marriage and rich?
I've seen too many miserable rich couples to fall for the money temptation.

Give me poor and content any day (as long as it's just poor. I can't deal with poor and covered in debt.)

17. What question do you want to know the answer to?
I would love to know the real motivation for why some people do some things. Because from this angle, it just doesn't make sense...

18. What is one of your favorite indulgences?
Kicking back with a good fanfic, a large glass of Sweet Tea (hopelessly Southern) and maybe a cookie...or two.

That makes for a good night in my book. ^_^

19. Would you have 100% safe sex with a stranger for $10,000,000?
Is he cute? lol, j/k.

that's actually a tough question because I know so much good could be done with that money in my family. Real good... not just self indulgence.

lol, I still don't think I could force myself to do it.

20. What is one of your happiest memories from the past week?
Sitting down intending to write something....and actually being able to do it! Very satisfying.

^_^ I lack the friend's list to tag people. So mine will be a wild card. Anyone who sees this and wants to do it can, just link me back to it when you do so I can see your answers!
