Day 02 - Where I'd like to be in 10 years.

Obviously I'd like to be financially secure, with a roof over my head and enough food to eat and clothes on my back. Other than that, I hope that by then I'd have at least gotten one book published, been a few places around the world, live with all the pets I ever wanted and maybe I guess be with someone who I adore. And it goes without saying, happiness and contenment.

That's about it.
meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ionizable because gawddayum, its been a long time since I did one.



Day 01 - I am single as a solitary pringle. Always have been up until now. Never dated, never made out with someone, the whole shebang etc. I did get asked out on a date once but I did not like the dude in question so I told him I had an exam. He suggested another time and day after my exams were done but I prevaricated because I refuse to go out with people who do not make me feel comfortable and this chap, who was my next door neighbor by the way had this knack of making me feel supremely uncomfortable. That was way back in the 12th grade.

The thing is I studied in a all-girls Catholic school and a all-girls Catholic convent. So as a result, I didn't learn how to interact with people who were not ladies and I was absolutely terrified of dudes. I couldn't even look them in the eye, let alone say a word or two to them.

But when I went on to do my post-grad, I decided it was time for me to pull-up my boots and get to interacting. The first few months, I was floundering but after that I managed and now I can look a dude in the eye and talk and have two excellent dude friends. Ooh, and postgrad too was where I developed some serious crushes (one only and lmao, I remember once me and friend were hiding in the bushes and checking this dude out.). I never made them progress beyond the point of a crush though because, one - no guts, two - or rather more importantly, I realized I do not do casual. I'm either all in or all out. I tend to be more invested than the other person and that way only lies to disaster.

I am also the person who when they crush pretends that the other person dosen't exist. I can't help it because my face is terribly expressive and if I had to look at the person I was crushing on as I passed by, my face would be the death of me. Hmm. I do need to find me some courage. At least acknowledging the other person is there would be a start. :D

I also feel compelled to admit that despite having no relationship expert whatsoever, I am the person who apparently doles out relationship advice and good advice at that. :D

Psych kind of has this knack for doing all these amazing theme episodes which are pretty much bags full of fun. But my favourite one has to be their Christmas themed episode during season 3. Gus's sister comes down then and she and Shawn have this thing going where they basically can't seem to keep their hands off each other. And Shawn just so happens to be staying over on Christmas eve. So there is this scene where EVERYONE is sneaking around in the night, to do ahem, questionable things and god, watching that montage was absolutely hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing. And I er, laughed till my stomach pained and my eyes were streaming. I think for that very scene itself I love that episode even though I technically love Psych as a whole and asking me to pick a favourite is like pulling teeth. :)


 
AMAZING. :D

The TV show I hate (which is a really strong term) so therefore dislike is Brothers and Sisters. I cannot stand that show and the entire family on that with the exception of one chick who I think is the step sister or something. My brother used to watch this show and whenever it came on, I would disappear from sight cause watching it made me want to blackout in rage. 
 
Okay, so I hate it.
 
 I don't know what pissed me off more, the family or the storyline. Either way I developed a terrible dislike to anything even remotely connected to the show cause it always came across as ohso WHINY and each family member was pretty much a self-obsessed nutcase.
 
There, I got it off my chest. Phew.

Day 4 - Your favourite show ever.

PSYCH.

See, the thing is I watch a lot of TV and like a lot of things. But until Psych began, I didnt think it was possible to love any show with the fervour with which I love Psych.

It's one of those shows that whenever I watch, it makes me crack up and love it somemore. In my opinion, maybe biased of course, that show can do no wrong. Like it is nade of awesome, has awesome storylines, is always funny and has one of the best bromances, romances ever. There's nothing for me not to love. Except Mr. Yin and Yang. And that's cause they be creepy. But even when they are creepy and psychotic, they are still badass mofos you know.

So yeah, Psych. Love it till the day I die and all that and would marry it in a heartbeat and have it's babies if that were possible.

Day 02 - A show that you wish more people were watching.

Pscyh. I am pretty sure it has decent viewer ship abroad but I wish more people here would watch it so we dont get the latest season two years late or something. Psych is beyond funny and it genuinely cracks you up you know? Shawn and Gus and Lassie and Jules and the Chief, their antics never fail to amuse. Also, their portrayal of Bromance(romance)? One of the BEST ever. Plus, the whole goddamn cast has the most chemistry with each other that I've ever seen. It deserves more you guys! AND ALSO MAYBE AN AWARD OR TWO, GODAMMIT!

See it. I promise, it is bagfuls of awesome. :D

Lengthy meme snurched from [info]unoriginal_liz. I always snurch my memes from her. :D

Day 01 - A show that should have never been cancelled.

I vehemently agree with Liz on this one. Pushing Daisies went wayy before it's time. I was extremely irritated when I learnt that it got cancelled. I mean, it was such a fun crime procedural you know? Every crime procedural show get's so scientifical and pontifical nowdays and PD was like a breath of fresh air. It had glorious colours, awesome characters and that whole fairytale aspect of it really, really got to me. The show was kind of like light fluffy chocolate, a visual treat and also amazingly edible.I was muy sad to learn of it's cancellation. :'(

List 10 platonic male/female relationships in fiction that you enjoy.

Rules:

1. They interact in canon, preferably in a significant (apply your own interpretation of such) way.
2. They are not related. They can, however, view each other as surrogate family.
3. Neither has confessed or implied romantic love for the other in canon.
4. They have not dated, been married, had sex, or made out in canon, on purpose, and of their own free will.
5. A popular fanon ship is ok (though preferably not your ship) but a canon pairing you wish were just friends is out.
6. Try to avoid using the same character or series twice.


THIS IS HARD. :'( So I did 6 okay? My brain cant even recall any other frandships. At least not male/female platonic ones. Which tells me that I really need to pay more attention to what I watch.

Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. )

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] unoriginal_liz

1. Leave me a comment saying OBJECTION!
2. I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

This is my first ever meme. Yay! I doubt how many people will answer it but on with it anways! Questions asked by Liz.

1) If you had a time machine, where would you go, and why?

I would want to go the future. Probably a hundred years ahead just so that I can see if I have made a mark in the world and how my family--if I have any left, is doing. Also I want to see if the world becomes dystopian. Then sci-fi would have finally got it right. And last of all, I want to see if there are flying cars and sentient robots. Because I'm a geek like that. Yes, I am also boring but that's another quibble for another day.

2) In your opinion, what is the most annoying habit someone can have?

Licking their fingers to flip pages in a book or count money. That is just gross. Also, if I find you dog-earing a book, I just might go suicidal on you. And since I have to pick one, I go for the first. Because I've so often seen people do it and it irritates me to no end. Use water if you must or just turn the pages with your fingers dry. It's not that hard!

3) Have you ever had a recurring dream?

Yeah. It's a night mare which I have had a few times now. In it I am bleeding and bruised and barely running away from someone who is beating me badly, and while my subconscious mind realizes that it's just a dream and not real, I cant seem to get out and the fear feels very crippling. sigh. :|

4) What is the most played song on your ipod/music player? (also - hey, awesome news about your ipod touch!)
That would be Dice - Finely Quaye. It's one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard and I first heard it on the OC three years ago. It's more often than not on repeat because I find the melody very soothing.

5) Do you have a dream pair of shoes (that you already own, or a pair you would buy if you had unlimited funds)?

Er, I dont own my dream pair. But currently, it's this set of four inches high hot pink heels by Steve Madden.It has ruffle detail on the front and it also has ankle straps and goddammit, I am in love. And if I had the monies, I would most definitely be buying it.

But shoes in general are a dream for me, and if I HAD unlimited funds, I would probably buy out shops and designers whole sale.

cough*obsession*cough.
