Hello!

I'd love to meet new people for my flist!
Feel free to friend me for stuff I post (icons, caps, fic, etc).
All I ask is that you comment if you take anything. Thanks!


Erin, but people call me Mari as well.
29, Canadian, employed at a newspaper.
Right now I'm mostly into Misfits, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries and 2 Broke Girls. I also watch Revenge, Torchwood, Doctor Who (although I'm a pre-11 girl), Community, Happy Endings, Game of Thrones, Southland & Sons of Anarchy, plus any number of shows as a casual viewer. I have been involved with a number of fandoms in the past but friending me based on those would be a disappointment for you.
Katie Cassidy. Brian/Justin. SHOES. I love original!Ruby. KStew, haters to the left. I love Rose. I LOVE DONNA NOBLE. Nail polish. I loooooove Jack Harkness. Zombies are the best thing ever (but I don't really like The Walking Dead. Mila Kunis. My cat is the best. The colour pink.
Everyday is Defriending Amnesty Day here.
I'm working on being a better commenter! I want to be a better friend! I read my flist fully pretty much every day. I'll comment where I feel I can actually say something and mean it. I don't comment for the sake of commenting, nor will I "comment to stay".

Screencaps list

I decided to go through and make all my caps accessible in one easy post, rather than looking through that damn tags list. Also, now I can just link this post rather than every single cap post I've ever made when I continue with my memories overhaul.

All caps with active links have been added to this list. There were A LOT more Prison Break and Veronica Mars caps posted but they were all on megaupload and I can't be arsed to re-upload them.

PLEASE READ THIS

I enjoy sharing the caps I make for people on LJ. I make them for my own purposes and to get the scenes/shows that I want for graphics but, really, what am I going to do with thousands of caps? So I share them so other people can use them for the same purpose.

If you have a fansite for a show/actor/whatever PLEASE ASK me before you upload them to said site. I'll most likely say yes. I know that I don't have the rights to the images but I put the time and effort into capping them for people to use. I appreciate knowing where they're going and for what purposes and to know there's some credit shown as a nod to the work that goes into capping/sorting/zipping/uploading to web space that is graciously donated to me for this use.

A heads up and courtesy is all I ask, thanks!


All links lead to posts where caps can be downloaded through zip files. Some may also have gallery links and will be indicated.

Please do NOT upload any of my caps to Fanpop!

Fic list

I didn't do a list of everything I had written for last year at the beginning of the year, so I thought I'd do this instead. It's everything I've written on LJ from the past couple of years or so. There's none of my Buffy fic on here since that's archived away somewhere on sites in fandoms past. I'm making this a sticky, as well, for easy access and I'll try to remember to update it as I post new stuff.

Fics are listed, more or less, from newest to oldest.

Riiiight

I was just looking through my icon folder which, of course, has hundreds (literally) of unposted icons because I'm partly lazy and partly weird. Mostly lazy. But mostly weird.

Anyhoo. So I was checking the dates on some of them and the earliest one I found of the ones I checked was from JUNE of TWO-THOUSAND AND NINE. aokdhaoihaodihad.

SERIOUSLY?

That means I'm going to be posting some fucking old icons this week, I guess.

This icon is new, though. Damn, I enjoy making animated icons. Stupid size limits, though.

In other news I mandolin'd a good chunk of my thumb off Saturday night (mom said there was some "meat" to it) when I was slicing a sweet potato so now I'm kinda doing everything one-handed. I almost barfed yesterday while it was gushing (which isn't like me but I chalked up to just being in shock since it's a rather bad cut) but also this morning when mom changed the bandage for me and the reaction was even WORSE. She had to get me a chair and bucket, I had to close my eyes and I was sweating like a pig but my face felt like ice.

WTF, self?!

I haven't even properly washed it yet because I was scared it would start bleeding again today so that'll be my daring thing in the morning before I wake mom up to re-bandage me. Because I'm a pussy who needs her mommy. Also, it's hard to bandage yourself with one hand.

The Golden Globes 2012: A fashion post with feelings!

I don't know why I spent all evening working on this. It's nice to start and finish something all in one night, though, especially something that I normally probably wouldn't have spent much time on normally. I was pretty focused. I have opinions, I guess. And on such earth shattering things! ;)

I also did a meme yesterday where you give me numbers and I answer based on the corresponding questions! It can be found here and I've been having fun doing it!

Caps: The Secret Circle 111 "Fire/Ice" (1148), 1280x720, review & picspam

Bought my first round of meds for my diabetes. I have a $50 deductible that gets paid at the start of the year so that kinda threw me for a loop when I saw the total. $107 and change. Luckily it's all claimable on taxes and all but jesus.

Speaking of the diabetes, it seems to be going okay. I'm trying to watch what I eat and I don't know if it's a placebo effect or if it really IS the meds but I find I DON'T want junky food as much. The doc said that the meds will help curb the desire, which is awesome. I'm still not eating as I SHOULD but I AM eating somewhat better. Yesterday my system had a bad reaction to a sub from Quiznos, though, so either it's the meds or my body has just had it with a lot of bread and such. It definitely wasn't something off with the sub since it passed through my system quickly so it wasn't food poisoning.

I'm having some trouble feeling satisfied without as much sugar. I'm a huge sugar fan (hi, it's why I'm in this mess, partially) so I have to find some things that are as good as sugar but aren't. Fruit is okay and I know some people are all- YAY, FRUIT! I don't need sugar! But I'm SO not. I like to put sugar ON my fruit. It's going to take some adjusting, for sure. But I don't WANT to be on the WHEE SUGAR! bandwagon. I so DON'T want to like it this much.

Overslept this morning, AGAIN. I don't know what to do to NOT sleep through my fucking alarms. It's not even a matter of putting one across the room, I have slept through ALL of them that I have set up. I have about 6, just to be clear. An alarm clock, a sleep tracker alarm on my phone and four more staggered phone alarms. The phone is right by my head so the sleep app can track my movements so it's right by my ear. Sometimes I DO wake up and turn them off, or accidentally fall back asleep after being awake but other times I simply sleep through all of them. It's been so bad that while I was napping a few weeks ago my alarm kept going off and my mom, who was also trying to nap upstairs, across the house, came down stairs and had to turn it off for me.

I don't know what's going to happen once we finally get winter here. We had a little bit of snow around the start of December and a few cold days but it's been CRAZY here for the past month or so. We've broken so many records because of the unseasonably warm temps. We had a couple chilly days this week but now it's going back up again. No snow, no frost on the windshields when we get up in the morning--I don't know what to think! Winter hasn't even started for us yet so it's fucking with my head and making me feel like it's more like spring. I'm in for a rude awakening once the weather finally catches up with the time of year it's SUPPOSED to be.

I think Mom and I are going to see "Joyful Noise" Saturday night. Cheesy as hell but I don't care. I like Queen Latifa and I like choir movies, surprisingly enough. And next week AD and I are going to see "Beauty and the Beast" in 3D!

Caps: The Secret Circle 110 "Darkness" (1111), 1280x720, review & picspam

It's like my computer knows I'm starting to search for something new to replace it. It's getting slllooooooowwwwww. It'll be a couple months before I do because I have to wait to have enough in my savings bonds first but I've already kind of picked out what I want. I'm actually going desktop-free, I think, for the first time. I have a laptop but I don't use it more because I HATE making graphics on it. I find the screen is too high contrast and makes everything more vibrant and hard-edged, if that makes sense.

So with the new laptop I'll keep my keyboard and monitor and just dock it so I can work off my monitor. I think that should work out nicely. Then I'll sell the desktop (which is still actually a good system for someone who doesn't use it as heavily as I do) and my laptop which is basically brand new, despite being 4 years old. I don't know how much I'll get out of them since computer systems don't resell as well as they once did but I would imagine I'll make a couple hundred. Hopefully, anyway.

In other news I've just drunk almost a litre of water and want to go right to bed. FFFFFUUUUUU.

I was so tired tonight when I came home from work that I balled up a blanket and slept on my desk for over an hour. That wasn't very comfortable, LOL. Even though this week has gone by pretty quick I'm happy the weekend is coming.

I'm linking this stuff again:

Since Curtis rewound time so the milk kid wouldn't use his power it technically never happened. Simon couldn't have brought it back from the future.

In other news I have NO idea why I'm still up. I am, however, watching season 1 of Haven and am... rather unimpressed? I dunno.

I've also already watched 5 movies this year (yes, I know the year is about 28-ish hours old):
01. Fright Night
02. Red State
03. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 (watched w/ Mom who hadn't seen it).
04. Friends with Benefits
05. Horrible Bosses

RS was definitely the best, followed by FWB. FN was pretty shitty and HB wasn't funny.

That is all.

Advent Calendar Day 20: [livejournal.com profile] obeetaybee & other stuff from 2011

This week was so weird! And now it's 2012 and I simply can't believe it. I honestly don't know where 2011 went.

I didn't get depressed AT ALL this year about the holidays! I'm usually quite bereft about the whole occasion, sentimental and all up in my head about stupid stuff but this year was so easy and casual and YAY. God bless my anti-depressants, seriously.

My cousin and his fiance came for the weekend and I think I warmed to her more this weekend than I have in the past few years combined. It's not that I didn't LIKE her but I have found her controlling and I haven't put much stock in their relationship, honestly. But this time around... I don't know. It felt different, something she even commented on at the end.

I went out Boxing day shopping and pretty much only picked up a buttload of blurays. Getting up so early, then sleeping until early afternoon once I came home fucked up my day and for the rest of it I almost felt hung over. The rest of the week passed by uneventfully, albeit quickly, at work.

I started training SS on pages and she did Monday's, so that was cool. My supervisor only talked about starting her training last week so I was like-- hey, let's get her trained for when CH comes back!

I had an appointment with the internal doctor or whatever the fuck he's called and he wasn't too concerned with the elevated white blood cells. He only had one other test prior to 2011 to refer to from 2008, I think, and that one ALSO had an elevated count so, personally, I'm thinking that's just the way I roll. He did, however, say I should continue taking a dose of iron a day because although my count has come back up it's on the low side of average. I'm just as happy to do that, honestly, because I was feeling pretty good on it, actually.

I also got an appointment with my clinic's RN and it was all about my glucose fasting and yes, I have type 2 diabetes (diabetus for you Wilford Brimley fans). The good thing, though, is that the med they started me on for it isn't the standard one, it's this injected thing that I take once a day and can help me lose weight! The way it was explained to me is that it's marketed as a diabetes drug right now but with further testing it could go on the market for weight loss, as well. Some people have tried it without altering their diet and have lost 25-ish lbs! I'm not relying on this as how I'm going to lose weight, but it will certainly help out! I refuse to let it be a way for me to get out of changing my diet and I definitely have to look into getting a gym membership. The doc even said that once I lose some weight there's a good chance I won't be diabetic any more so there's that, too!

I shit the bed on the last day of my Advent Calendar postings but in my defense WOW I ACTUALLY STAYED WITH IT TO THE ALMOST VERY END!!!

My layout is different for the first time in FOREVER. It's a hot mess right now because I still have to frig with the colours and stuff but it's a good step toward a new look. I also have custom comment pages enabled WHICH I HATE but it's the only way the comment box looks like it used to. Sorry peeps, if you hate them as much as I do.

Went to the internist today and he ordered a buttload of blood tests to see if he can track down what's up with my elevated white blood cells. Going back to 2008 they were high so who knows? Right now they're on the slightly upper side of normal so he doesn't seem TOO concerned but if the numbers jump up he said he'd order a bone marrow test, yikes.

My glucose test did NOT come back well so in the New Year when I see my doctor I'll be more than prepared for a diagnosis of diabetes. For the meantime I'm going to enjoy the holiday and start looking at a gym membership.

Yeah, still not feeling the bullshit going on with the comments. I don't use subject lines that much but I know how crucial they are for a lot of other people. I also know how fucked up it is for some people who have bandwidth caps or slow internet to have to load their icons EVERY TIME they want to change on a comment. That's fucked up.

More health stuff, of course. I saw my doc yesterday and he said my bloodwork from last week showed high sugar and a fourth consecutive elevated white blood cell count. He's referred me to an internist (internalist?) about the white blood cells and mentioned leukemia and cyto something cancer cells, I dunno. The only time I reacted was when he mentioned the possibility of a bone marrow sample cause ouch!

I had to get a glucose test today where they take your blood, you drink something akin to McDonalds orange drink and then sit around at the clinic for two hours, waiting for them to take more blood. I'm pretty prepared to hear I have diabetes, tbh. I'm relatively okay with that, too. Even though it's a serious illness I think it'll be the fire under my butt I need to smarten the fuck up about food and my weight and stuff.

I'm pretty sure, however, that I don't have cancer. I'm probably just one of those people that run with higher white blood cells. Or it's something else. But I'm like, 98% sure I don't have cancer. I'm not worried about it, at any rate. Nice to know my doctor's looking out for me, though! And because I'm his patient the person who books the specialist's appointments has already gotten me in because she's also his patient!

Onto happier things!
