Haven't posted in ages on here but saw this on Tumblr (Japonicastar as usual is my username) and I had to share it.

In other news, super exited about Sherlock. It be back. My excitement is supernova and it's now 4 minutes less than 25 days to wait! YES!

Subject:You know I said about Spiders?
Time:12:08 am.
You know that spider that jumped on my shoulder, crawled across my foot and hid under my wardrobe? It came out and sat behind my head.

Seriously. Stalker spider! How the christ am I supposed to sleep now? At least my stepdad came in and took it downstairs. Apparently it came right back in after being thrown out of the glass so it's still in the house.

Maybe the dog will eat it?

Oh my god, your worst nightmare just happened to me. I was washing my hands in my bathroom and I felt something crawling on my shoulder and I screamed and ran out of the room.

My bra strap had fallen down so I assumed it was my imagination so went back into the bathroom. Then a flipping massive spider ran across my foot. It was big and I'm not scared of spiders generally.

Typically it then decided to run in my room and hide under my wardrobe. Oh it was gross! Not happy it's in there!

If you are looking for an excellent, gen, BBC Sherlock fic (and who isn't?)then I have a rec for you, Tear Up Your List by Innie.

As Moriarty keeps baiting him with seemingly random acts of violence, Sherlock struggles to keep up and keep John safe, but then there's one puzzle that shakes Sherlock's support system entirely. The story is ostensibly a modern-day spin on hiatus fic - John thinks Sherlock is dead, Sherlock is trying to destroy Moriarty's criminal network. But it's really about Sherlock working through what John and Mycroft mean to him.

As I said, it's gen, well mostly and it's gritty, very gritty and dark in its way but the characters and their feelings for one another so warm and heartening. Clever fic really and written well.

I highly recommend my dears, and you know it's pretty good if I bother getting of my bum and stating it. X

Go glad that Martin Freeman and Sherlock won a BAFTA. Poor Benedict Cumberbatch didn't get an award to himself but we still love you.

Also, they've started filming again in Cardiff. So tempted to hop on the train and see if I can bump into him. Guh!

Anyhow, need more Sherlock recs please.

Music:The 7 Ages of Britain.
So it's all [info]schemingreader's fault, I am completely hooked on the BBC's, Sherlock.

I watched the first ten minutes on a plane back from Tokyo and when I saw [info]schemingreader's post, I went and found the episodes online.

Watched the three episodes that currently exist and am currently devouring fics. Am really enjoying The Progress of Sherlock Holmes by Ivyblossom.

So please, can you reccomend some fics? I'm a Sherlock newbie so any recs would be much appreciated.

Anyway, back to it!

Subject:Hugs to Christchurch
Time:8:23 pm.
Mood: sympathetic.
Music:She Said - Plan B.
I have to post to say how sad I was to see this beautiful city and it's residents coping with this latest disaster.

I was in Christchurch just over a month ago and I loved it.

All my love to those effected and I hope this isn't an inappropriate picture in the circumstances, but here's the cathedral in better days...

Christchurch - NZ

This pictures on here are my taken by my dad and yes, the auburn/brown haired one is me. Feel free to be nosy, we won't mind.

Anyway, big hugs, we all need them I think.

Subject:It's the weekend, time for some snarry
Time:8:48 pm.
Mood: bouncy.
You know when you finish reading something and your chest is fully of happy bubbles of joy that makes you want to share your happiness with everyone?

I'm like that this evening and a gorgeous fic in the name of Coffeehouse Jazz by Cayce Morris is the reason for it.

This fic is snarry, and it's warm and comforting with an emotional, tugging at the heart strings vibe as well.

I seriously don't understand why Cayce's name isn't being shouted from the roof tops, she is a prolific writer in her own right and a very good one at that so please, go and check her out.

Mood: sad.
Music:Firework - Katy Perry.
So I haven't seen my friend since my birthday in December and we've both been on holiday in that time. When I invite her for a cuppa today, I got the reply "Oh well Andy's going out tonight so I can see you then."

Well that's nice, you really know how to make a girl feel special. You'll only see me because your boyfriend is going out. Nice! You've spent 3 weeks with him, but I don't get a visit if he's available.

Is is hard for people to understand that a person likes their presence to matter and not to feel, I don't know, unwanted.

In any case she's now coming over for tea to talk about her perfect holiday, her perfect bloke and her perfect flaming job.

Seriously. I need a man, at least then I may not feel like I'm lost. I need something anyway, a new job even. I'm sick of being stuck in a rut and everyone else is getting married and having babies.

I hate putting on a happy front because it's killing me listening to these people go on and on about things I don't have.

Blegh I'm a hormonal mess today, many apologies!

Have just seen DH for the second time. All I have to say is that I'm glad they got the Bristol connection in there. You noticed the big bridge that they camped under, it the Severn Bridge and it's a couple of miles down the road from me. Hah!

In respect of the film itself, I think I liked it the most of all the films, although it made me cry twice. It also made my love for Dobby all the more, I mean he rocks my mismatched, odd coloured socks.

Couple of things bugged me, but hey you can't ask for everything.

So I would suggest dearest HP fans watching it, if you haven't already.

Night. Xx

Further to this post:

On the 23rd October 2010, it'll be the 10 year anniversary of the 1st Snarry fic recorded to have been posted.

Please tell me there's a party and we'll be celebrating?

We'll need cocktails, party hats, oh and plenty of snarry drabbles/fics.

I'm only a lurker in snarry fandom and I'm hoping someone big will take up the baton and run with it.

I mean, do we really need any further excuses to celebrate?

Received an email with pictures. Honestly, it's brilliant. Please check them out, some are very funny and some are very gross.

Safe to say it made me feel better about the way I look.

A taster....

The caption says: Oh, the humanity. How did we get to this point as a species???

Can I echo this question? I mean, something artistic and tasteful perhaps, but a film title? Seriously?!

Subject:Snarry Fic (found!)
Time:9:23 pm.
Mood: Nervous.
A new fic to me that I haven't seen anyone rec:

The Fifth Act by oliver.snape.

Ok so firstly I realise that it has been posted on the dreaded but it is a well written fic and I really enjoyed it. I am a bit of a romantic at heart so these 'fake married' fics are right up my street.

I suggest you checking it out (if you haven't already)!

Also, I suck at my first aid course. Exam tomorrow. So don't want to fail so I have to do it again! Ick! Nervous already!

So my holiday is booked and I will be going to Tokyo, Australia and Singapore. Obviously there are certain cities in Oz, but I'm not sure if anyone is particularly interested!

I do however want the opinion of those in the know: shall I do the Sydney Bridge Climb?

Dad seems to think I have to do it but eh I'm not afraid of heights but I'm not bothered to do it really. So your opinions please. Should I do it?

Ignore these lot!

Darling [info]wreckplunderer's book comes out today and is already #2 on the Amazon book list. I'm so proud of her!

Here's the link for Transforming Through 2012 and oddly it doesn't involved HP, though I'm sure on some levels it could reference him!

*Squishes Canis* Congrats honey bunch!

I hope this posts to LJ too because it damn won't load my darling flist! Xx

Subject:Literal Videos and RL
Time:10:52 pm.
Mood: sick.
So it was pulled from Youtube because Sony can't take a joke, but at least this one hasn't been found... Yet!

Created by the very talented dascottjr who everyone should check out. Safe to say, if you are having a bad day this guy's videos will cheer you up.

In other news I've had my first day off sick since starting work four years ago at Giles. And blech I don't feel so great so get well soon me!

Ooooh completely unrelated matter, my other pregnant friend (the one who is not due yesterday!) asked me to be Godmother! She had her 20 week scan and it's a healthy girl! Am excited for August!

Oh and I may (it's not yet booked) be going to Oz, NZ, Tokyo and LA in January next year. More details on that to come! SQUEE *coughs and splutters*!
