I just stayed up all night in order to watch Ernest Lehman's The Sweet Smell of Success this morning.  ALL NIGHT without sleep, mind you.

The movie rocked.  Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis. Oh my god, there was so much slash between these two characters, and Tony Curtis looked even hotter in this than he did in Spartacus, I swear, and then as if all this sublimated sexual tension isn't enough, Burt Lancaster tells Tony Curtis at one point:

"I'd hate to take a bite out of you--you're a cookie full of arsenic."

In that sultry, Burt Lancastery way.


Dude. So. I'm FIFTEEN MINUTES from the end of this asdjfkjf;ksl movie, which, by the way, is utterly fantastic and a must-see for anybody who loves All About Eve and other classic biting tales of theatre and showbuisiness, and I've just reached the climax, when our cable quits.  Completely.  And the doorbell rings.


This is worse than when patchfire and primroseburrows and dancingrain and I saw Prizoner of Azkaban and the movie reel burned a minute and a half from the end of the film. 

Movie buffs, share my pain, for woe, I am exhausted, and dying to know what happens at the end. :(

Let's play the game where we steal memes from our friends even though we still have to answer the memes in their own LJs!  I like that one!

this one is gacked from Kirsah:

If bookshop were her own fandom:

a. Who would the het 'shippers pair me with?
b. Who would the slashers pair me with?
c. Who would be in my OT3 with me?
d. What would a Mary Sue in my fandom be like?
e. When did I / will I jump the shark?  (BE NICE HERE, especially if you have known me longer than a year. :D)
f. Write a one sentence summary of the story that would win the Best Fanfic Award in my fandom.

And this one is gacked from Reena:

I want anyone and everyone who reads this to post in here something they would like to do with me someday.  Then post this in your journal to find out what people want to do with you!

And this one is gacked from Jaci and is cut because it's long. Collapse )

and this one is gacked from everybody but most recently Jules and Olivia:  Collapse )

and this one I gacked from Lily!  Collapse )

and finally, gacked from Miggy and Minerva, let's play the Marry/Shag/Cliff game!  You guys tell me 3 names and I'll tell you whether I'd marry them, shag them, or throw them over a cliff!  And then I'll give you 3 names and you do the same! :D  Whee!

Okay!  Things I have to do for the rest of the night which this meme will happily distract me from doing:
1) catch up on friends list!  I love catching up on my friends list. <3
2) finish and completely upload my present for geoviki.  You didn't know you had a present coming, did you? :D
3) catch up on patchwork_quill.
4) update my website and give subdirectory accounts to people who don't have them yet--linnpuzzle, that includes you! :)
5) see if I can stay up all night again in order to watch the last 15 minutes of Sweet Smell of Success sometime around 6 am. Yikes.
