So, I haven't posted in, like, damn near forever, but the truth is I've been thinking about coming back for a while, because Twitter is nice and all, but sometimes, occasionally, I want to say something that takes up more than 140 characters. You know, occasionally.

Then livejournal went all creepy on me, and renewed my paid account, even though I hadn't had a paid account for way over a year, and the last time I paid them anything I had a completely different bank account at a completely different bank, and I don't know how the hell they pulled that psychic shit and got my new one...

...but I figured, since I paid for it and all, might as well get some use from it.

Also, in 2008 there was this really sexy guy on American Idol, who blew me away, and I was like, da-yum! And broke out my long neglected livejournal and made a post about it, or some shit, and joined a community about sexy American Idol dude, and then all the sudden me and livejournal were like bff's.

And then, you know, shit got weird and I had to take a break from all the wank. And now I'm back! And what has brought me back to my once more long neglected livejournal?

A sexy man. Duh.

His name is Benedict Cumberbatch, which, like, what the, I can't even....

He plays a modern day Sherlock Holmes, yes, THE Sherlock Holmes, not like, a Holmes-ian type character, but the real thing, in the new BBC series titled Sherlock of all things. And...I dunno, he's just sort of grabbed me, in the way that Dave grabbed me way back in the day. Mostly, it's, fuck, the way he wears a suit, because damn, I love me a guy who looks great in a suit, what can I say? And either the Sherlock fandom is bad or screen capping, or really good at hiding that shit, cause the above pic is the best I could find, but believe me, that ain't nothing. And, of course, Sherlock Holmes is supposed to be intelligent, and to me, intelligence adds to a guys sexiness quotient by like, I dunno, cubed or something. Oh! And he's like, fucking friends with David Tennant or some shit, which is just, fangirl overload or something.

And so I am back, and it is for love or lust of a man once more. That doesn't mean this journal is going to become a (cumber)batch-o-love, or anything, I still have similar interests as before. I just now have a new interest. And isn't he pretty? Now some of you may be thinking, "but-but she's changed he banner and everything!" and I have, but that's mainly because the old one was 2 years old, but also because I needed a change. And while I was thinking I needed to change my banner, I actually had no intention of doing it right away, because Photoshop is being a bitch right now and won't work on my laptop, and I just wasn't gonna be dealing with all that. But then! As if it was fate! I was searching for Benedict in a suit pics, and what did I stumble across, but a pic that was like it was specially made to be my banner. And I didn't have to do anything. So really, how could I resist?

Okay, that's all for now. I have no idea if anyone will even see this post. But if you do, then hello, how are you? Sorry I was such a disappearing bitch before. But it's good to see you.
Hey all. I'm back.

I...needed to take a break from LJ land. It was getting to the point where it was bumming me out more than it was bringing me joy. And that's not what this is supposed to be about. If it's not fun anymore, any of it, LJ, the fandom, all of it, then what is the point?

I thought, you know, I was meeting some really great people on LJ, people that I considered to be actual friends. And then, some people that were really close to me hurt me a great deal. And without even really talking to me about it. And I thought, what is the point? When it hurts more than anything else, why keep doing it? And I nearly deleted my journal.

But then I remembered that this is my journal, and my memories, my life, my experiences. And I remembered the true friends that I do have, the ones that have stuck by me in difficult times, the ones who do not force me to choose. I wouldn't have met them if it wasn't for David Cook, and the fandom, and despite all the shit that comes along with it, really, David, the boys, and all the friends they have brought me, well, it makes it all worth it. It makes it worth carrying on through all the hurt.

That said, I have a lot to post. Concert pics and vids, and there's a half written Tiedam just begging to be posted. So, I'm back. But it will take me a little time to get caught up.

Thank you to all my wonderful, amazing friends. I couldn't do this without you.
Placing this here for my own benefit. Feel free to read, though. It's quite interesting.


The Not So Friendly Skies
The journey to the AI8 Promised Land has been one to forget. Except we won't allow it.

If American Idol were an airline company, then this weekend you'd be landing on a sunny Caribbean island surrounded by crystal blue water, perfectly manicured beaches, and a staff of locals standing by to cater to your every whim. Ah, paradise! Mind you, along the way your plane would've been delayed on the jetway at takeoff for five hours...you'd have made two unscheduled stops for repairs...the airline would've lost your reservation, your luggage, and your spouse...all of the in-flight magazines, not to mention every square inch of the cabin, would've been filled with nothing but ads...you'd have ordered chicken and rice for dinner but the flight attendant would've served you liver and turnips and insisted it was what you really wanted...the cockpit crew would have come on the loudspeaker every five minutes arguing furiously with one another about which one best knew how to fly the plane...and, after a harrowing landing that could not, strictly speaking, be termed a crash because the plane finished right-side up, the airline's CEO would've greeted you at the gate to remind you how enjoyable the entire experience had been, and that you could purchase MP3s of your fellow passengers' terrified screams on iTunes the next day. Not to mention that your intended destination would've been Chicago all along.

Such is the feeling today across Idol Nation. On the one hand, the series has never produced a final matchup as compelling as Adam Lambert vs. Kris Allen – two men who could not be more different in style or personality, but two who could not be more alike in understanding what it takes to succeed here in the Second Idol Epoch. On the other hand, thanks to the producers' scheming antics right from the get-go (and continuing even as we speak), the itinerary felt like something between a triathon and a death march. Season Eight, the highest-rated one in our database, was also, at least in our eyes, the least enjoyable. Yes, that includes Season Six. No, we never dreamed we'd ever write those words.

So shall we focus this weekend on the journey or the destination? Let's do a little of both. To fully understand how we arrived at this point, and why the popular and über-talented Lambert is in serious jeopardy of losing on Tuesday night, we need to rewind the calendar to January and take this long trip over again. Don't worry, you're flying WNTS Airways now. We're a turnip-free airline.

Yeah, this pretty much HAD to be icon-ed. It's true.

oflights tagged me with Neal, so here we go:

1. Do you like this person?
Um. Yes. I actually fell for Neal first because of his lyrics. Anodyne lyrics to be precise, which I actually found in the comments of oflights's journal. oflights betcha didn't know that you were indirectly responsible for my Neal Tiemann love. I have a thing for angst (shocking, I know) and Neal's lyrics are just, like, perfect for me. He's also pretty damn hot, it's true. He was the first BoUH member I actually had a conversation with (outside of David) and he, like David, gives you his full attention when you speak.

2. How do you call this person?
I don't really get this question. Assuming I actually ever did call Neal, I think phone is the fairly obvious answer here. I don't though. Call Neal, that is. He never calls me either. I'm trying to get over it. I read that book "He's Just Not That Into You". It helps.

3. Which color do you associate with this person?
Blue, maybe. Or green. No, I associate green with David. So, definitely blue for Neal.

4. What do you like best about his/her look?
His hair. Love the blond hair, but I'm down with the auburn as well. I still giggle at the thought of Neal with his purple Revlon hair straightener.

5. Looking at his/her character, what blood type do you think he/she has?
Again....I don't totally get the question. Is there some blood type/personality thing I am unaware of?....Apparently there is. Okay, so I'd pick B for Neal "People with blood type B are the most practical of the blood groups. They are specialists in what they do. When they start a project, they spend extra time understanding and trying to follow directions than others might. When they are doing something, all of their attention is focused on it. They tend to stick to a goal and follow it through to the end, even if it seems impossible. They tend to be less than cooperative, as they like to follow their own rules and their own ideas. They are individualists. B type people pay attention to their thoughts a little more than their feelings, and therefore can sometimes seem cold and serious." And if anyone's curious, I'd put Kyle as a solid "O" type, and Andy as a solid "A" type.

6. What do you want to tell that person?
I'm not sure I have anything else I'm burning to say that I haven't already said, which is just that I love his music and his lyrics. Oh...except maybe...."Add Avalanche and Anodyne to the set list more often!!"

7. What do you want to do with this person: hug, kiss or shake?
Probably hug. I'm not gonna say a definite "no" on the kissing, you know, if the opportunity should ever arise, lol, but I'm leaning towards hug.

8. Pick five of your friends and pick one person for them:

dreamerren - Skib, of course.
honestys_easy - Ryan Star
clarkangel - David Cook
park_ave_pirate - Neal Tiemann
strawberrytatoo - Ryan Seacrest

Okay, so I've been watching "Dollhouse" all afternoon, and I gotta say, I'm a little hooked. It's kinda addictive.

Is anyone else on my f-list watching this show?

And now I have a burning desire to fic it. lol. David would so have to be the doll. But who would be the client? Post your David!Dollhouse fic ideas here. It would be awesome.

*For those of you who don't know, Dollhouse is about a company that has people that they wipe the memories of, then plant fake memories/personality and um, I guess you could say, whore them out to rich people. Or the government.

ETA: Oh, and Victor and Cieara are friggin' adorable. I ship them.
