christycorr: Jon Stewart (The Daily Show) (True story.)
I'm in Rome! I've been enjoying the city a great deal. It's lovely, even if the number of Ancient Roman buildings destroyed and commandeered by the Catholic Church makes me want to die inside more often than not. It's not anti-Christian animosity, see—it's just, I'm a really fangirly Republican Rome fangirl, and GAH WHY DIAFF UGH.

...Ahem. I've also been to London and Paris recently, and it was awesome! [livejournal.com profile] wendybarrie_ and I met [personal profile] oxymora in Paris, and we'll see her again in Venice this weekend, yay! On the less yay-worthy side of things, we were robbed in the train, and some douche took all our money while we slept. Also, some random perv cornered us in the Paris subway—anyway, not good.

Buuut enough RL babbling! Sayeth [personal profile] afterthree:

By doing this in my own journal instead of in [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42's comments I'm probably turning this into a meme, but it's kind of awesome and I think deserving of meme status.

The idea is that we all watch different shows, even when we all watch the same ones. (...) What shows within shows have you watched?


Here's what I've been watching lately, in no particular order:

- The Oh My God, Neal/Peter/Elizabeth Is So Canon Show.

- The David Tennant Is Surprisingly Endearing When Babbling Like A Madman Show.

- The Nathan Fillion Fillions Around For Forty Minutes A Week, Oh And Incidentally Beckett Is Also Very Badass Show.

- The Needs Moar Misha Collins Show The Spot The Episode Bits That Will Make Fangirls Go Nuts, Kill Things, Die Of Embarrassment, And/Or Write Shittons of Fanfiction Show. (I love this one.)

- The One Where Matt Bomer Speaks Klingon The One Where Jayne Cobb Is An NSA Agent ...The Brandon Routh Is SO PRETTY Show. Because he iiiiis. ♥ WHERE'S THE FIC, FANDOM.

- The Most Fucked Up Protagonist In Television Nowadays, Who May Just Be One Of My Favourite Characters Ever Show. Alternatively: The Michael C. Hall Is God, And Also Creepy As Fuck Show.

- The Ben Linus Is A Magnificent Bastard and wait, what? WTF IS GOING ON? Show, which I just resumed watching last week. I still haven't finished season four, but I plan to soon!

- The I'm Trying Really Hard To Be A Good Quinto Fangirl And Keep Watching Just For Sylar, But YAWN! Show.

- The Topher!Victor Show. There were a lot of things I loved about it (The Most Thought-Provoking Premise In A While Show could work, too), but really. Topher!Victor. I mean my God. Enver Gjokaj is a genius.

- The Barney Stinson Is Awesome, If A Tad Too Repetitive, But That's Mostly Still Somewhat Okay Show. - It's also been the Wow, Robin Scherbatsky Is Such A BAMF Show, but, you know, amen to this fandomsecret. :(

- The Tried Too Hard To Be Ocean's Eleven And Failed, But That's Okay Because There's Always Hardison, Eliot and Parker To Awesome Things Up Show.
christycorr: Fangirls (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) (Fan.)
[livejournal.com profile] wendybarrie_ asked me to upload this, so in case anyone else wants it—



In case you don't know what this is: Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog is Joss Whedon's (Buffy, Firefly, Dollhouse) brainchild, written and filmed during the Writers' Guild 2007-8 strike. It's a supervillain's video blog. It's a musical. Said supervillain—Dr. Horrible himself—is played by the brilliant Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson). His nemesis, Captain Hammer, is the awesome Nathan Fillion (Castle, Firefly, Buffy); the girl Dr. Horrible loves from a distance is none other than Felicia Day, geek muse extraordinaire (Buffy, The Guild).

Seriously. It's awesome.

So! If you've lived under an internet rock for the past couple of years, hurry along and watch the 45-minute micro-series by downloading the file below, or on YouTube.

Downloads:

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (video), on MegaUpload.

Dr. Horrible soundtrack download links )

Awesomely enough, the Dr. Horrible DVD's commentary track is also a musical, sung by the writers and the cast. It may actually, at times, be slightly more brilliant than Dr. Horrible itself.

Google Wave

Dec. 1st, 2009 09:35 pm
christycorr: APO (Alias) (Authorised personnel only.)
All right, so I forgot to post about Google Wave here. I have a shitload of invites (like, 50+, so that should be enough for you lot :D) if anyone's interested. Comments are screened; just leave your email here and I'll send you one.

I'm christycorr@googlewave there too, so if you're around, add me—group Waves are always fun!

Edit: What is Google Wave? Okay, here's a nice little video explaining what Wave is. And here's a Lifehacker post explaining it in more detail, with screenshots.

Google Wave is basically Google acknowledging that e-mailing has become too formal and bulky. They're trying to reinvent e-mails. If you use Wave for nothing other than communication with a single person at a time, it's a glorified IMing interface (that runs in your browser) where you can see the other person's typing in real time, drag and drop attachments, use indentation to maintain parallel conversations, and embed videos, images & Google searches. There are other gadgets around (games and whatnot), but these are the basic features. If you use it to chat with a bunch of people, it's—well, it's pretty much the same thing, but with a lot of people involved, it's much more entertaining! :D

It's great for group activities and collaborations of all kinds. I'd guess it would make a very interesting tool for beta-ing fics, too.

Plus, you know, they got the name from Firefly. Which is awesome. ♥
christycorr: Anya (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) (Bunnies.)
Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin.

I suicidally signed up for two [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin fics in July: Imagine Me & You, and Laws of Attraction. (RM, like many others of its kind, is a comm where people write Merlin AU fic based on movie plots. You sign up for a movie and, in this case, get a two-month deadline.) Due to circumstances quite beyond my control, I found myself being signed up for co-writing a fic with [personal profile] firstlightofeos; after much debate, we settled for Closer. Runi also had a fic of her own to write—Mean Girls. I of course didn't actually start writing much of my fics until, like, two weeks before the deadline (which was September 1st; later, it was extended to September 8th).

In the meantime, Runi and I discussed the Closer fic at length. And by that I mean TO A TRULY RIDICULOUS EXTENT. Seriously. 'Overthinking' doesn't begin to cover it. We watched the movie—I think I watched it, like, three times in the past month—and read (and annotated) the play, and discussed each character thoroughly—their motivations, their personalities, the play/movie's recurring motifs and timeline quirks, the locations, shit, everything. We drafted an outline, picked a structure and what would happen in each scene. I started spouting Closer quotes in all kinds of everyday conversation; I swear, even my brain started monologuing in Closer quotes.

Er. We ended up not writing the Closer fic, and chose to focus on our individual fics.

My creative process, let me show you it. )

And now I'm writing Imagine Me and You. I have no idea whether I'll finish on time—I have four days, which is not much, but it's somewhat doable—but I'll do my damnedest!

So like, if I start spouting flower meanings out of the blue, please don't mind me, really. *grins* These fics have quite clearly eaten my brain.
christycorr: Dr. Horrible (Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog) (Coming along.)
The following links are some of the many, many reasons why I've been going, "Jesus, I'd kill to be at Comic-Con" for the past couple of days, thanks to Twitter and the (admittedly far too many) geeks Twitter users I happen to follow.

(On the very, very bright side, [livejournal.com profile] firstlightofeos, [livejournal.com profile] moon_dancing, [livejournal.com profile] afterthree, [livejournal.com profile] oxys_kai_moros, [livejournal.com profile] nancy_downs, [livejournal.com profile] inksplotched and I have made plans to attend next year's Comic-Con together, which will be all kinds of brilliant!)

I'm excited for Iron Man 2 and Avatar and Fringe and of course the next two (:D!) Star Trek movies and oh God, watching Comic-Con news from afar is short-circuiting my obsessive brain. There's way too much geekery out there I want to watch. Crap.

Links: Comic-Con costumes, Russell T. Davies, Firefly, Dollhouse, The Cabin in the Woods, The Guild, V, Chuck, True Blood, Twilight, Twitter )

Star Trek: SEE 'Make Kirk/Spock Canon' petition. I pretty much fully agree with [livejournal.com profile] sunhawk's thoughts on the matter, so I'll just sit here in my quiet internet corner and headdesk away.

Star Trek: Reboot fic recs of the must-read variety: We Reach Our Apogee Slowly by [livejournal.com profile] kowaiyoukai (Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock pre-slash, WIP), You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While) by [livejournal.com profile] seperis (Kirk/Spock), Don't Last Like the Feeling by [livejournal.com profile] anowlinsunshine (Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock), Common Bond by [personal profile] florahart (Sarek/Winona). Also, [personal profile] rageprufrock's D: (RPS, Chris/Zach). Yes. I know. It's RPS. Shut up. [For more ST:TOR recs, click here.]

Incidentally, I neglected to make a Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince reaction post, despite my promise to [personal profile] afterthree that I would, so here's the gist of what I would've said: the movie was hilarious; I still don't like Gambon's Dumbledore; I enjoyed a lot of the movie, but the last third of it or so were just plain painful. I wasn't a big fan of the cave scene or Dumbledore's death. This wasn't my favourite movie, but it wasn't the worst of the batch. In a word: meh. EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda has said it best in her Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in 15 Minutes, really. Heeee.

christycorr: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Merlin's saggy left--)
When you see this, post five seven unpopular fandom opinions in your journal.

1. [Doctor Who] I adore Steven Moffat and all his DW episodes (except for the fourth season two-parter, because no amount of fangirlism can get me to appreciate River), so I'm actually curious to see what he'll do with Eleven. I'll miss Tennant like hell, but I'll definitely give the next series a chance.

2. [Torchwood] I hate Torchwood. I've watched several episodes, and I should like it, really—I love Jack, and James Marsters was in it, even, I should've been all over that, but...no. The team fails, and even Jack fails, and Owen fails, and Gwen fails oh God, so hard, and the plotlines are ridiculous, and they're all amazingly inefficient and terrible at their jobs, and just, what the hell were you high on when you allowed this to happen, RTD?

Harry Potter, Star Trek, Merlin, et al. )


I signed up to write two [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin fics: Laws of Attraction and Imagine Me & You. *headdesk* I think it's a masochism thing. But hey, I have until September—I may actually finish them, who knows?

Oh, and just because it's being debated everywhere: Michael Jackson died. The rumour outbreak broke the internet—including, but not limited to, LJ, Twitter, E! and CNN. I'm pretty sure [livejournal.com profile] ohnotheydidnt did the LJ-breaking; the comm was inaccessible for a while before the whole site crashed down. Damn, I really wanted to read people's comments on the matter. Way to go, ONTD!

I feel sorry for the bazillion people who bought tickets for his 'This Is It' 2010 tour, anyhow. The man's musical talent was respect-worthy regardless of personal taste, even if his private life was a godawful mess.
christycorr: Monty Python's The Meaning of Life (Oh no you didn't.)
The new Doctor Who spoilers made me happy. I wasn't all that pleased with the casting news we got a couple of weeks ago, but this makes it much better :D Also, several endings being filmed = awesome DVD extras next year. Yay!

Oh, I got a couple more Dreamwidth invites yesterday. I'm pretty sure everyone who wanted a code already got one, but if not, feel free to let me know, and I'll send it over. Gone now!

Every TV series I watch is now on hiatus—so weird. (Nevertheless: Chuck, Dollhouse, Castle and Lie to Me were renewed! Which made me very, very happy! Alas, Kings won't make it, but I never thought it would.) I will, of course, end up start watching a new show or two, and end up being forced to give up on half of these by the time the next season comes along. Because that's just how I roll. *headdesk*

Also, I think I've officially run out of time on the emailing Hourglass nominees thing. I can't seem to find emails for a bunch of them, and it's driving me nuts.

*sighs* Can any of you give me a hand? I have the list of email-less authors, and maybe they just require some more clicking around. I just—gah.
christycorr: Merlin and Arthur (Merlin) (Subtext.)
I've never been a Trekkie—I know nothing of the old series apart from the occasional tidbit, and of course the fact that Kirk/Spock was the Slash Ship to Start All Slash Ships. (I'm all for that, incidentally. And the subtext made me laugh out loud way too many times.)

I've just watched J. J. Abrams' Star Trek and shit, it's made of AWESOME. It's also possibly the Wibbly-Wobbly-Timey-Wimiest movie I've ever seen, even though it's totally anti-WWTW logic, of course. Here's my two cents: Are you out of your Vulcan mind? )

I liked this movie far (FAR) more than I did any of the latest Star Wars flicks (which I didn't hate, except for most of Hayden Christensen's bits). Watch and learn, Lucas. This is how a decent director works his actors! This is how a competent plot-maker (and J. J. Abrams is nothing if not a superb plot-maker) develops his story! ... Oh man, I loved this so hard. I'm still on a major geek high.

I watched Angels & Demons right before Star Trek, and I can't decide if I hate The Da Vinci Code or this one more. This one had worse plot devices and lamer action sequences, even though the plot itself was better—more credible, I guess. Tom Hanks had some particularly horrible bits. The burning scene was cool, though. *grins* Of the two books, A&D is probably better; the two movies are pretty much equally bad, but this one doesn't have Ian McKellen.

A Half-Blood Prince trailer showed right before Angels & Demons. As usual, I'm doing my best not to be excited, and not to let myself think that this movie could actually be decent. I know it won't work, but I can still try. *grins* Man, they're going to fuck up the book's plot so thoroughly, it's not even going to be funny. I can hardly wait.

Regarding yesterday's season finales: I haven't watched Grey's Anatomy at all this season, but I know what happened, and yay! Finally! As for Supernatural, oh my God, that was mind-boggling and brilliant and almost entirely unexpected. I loved it! I thought they'd ruined the show's next season with this larger-than-life season plot, but they didn't. I'm happy.

Overall, it's been a good day to be a geek. *beams*

Happy wedding day, [personal profile] oxymora! I hope everything goes well ♥
christycorr: Tenth Doctor (Doctor Who) (This is how I roll.)
I'm a big fan of character-driven fiction. It's not that I think plot is unimportant, but it's secondary—a plot has to be truly dazzling to make me ignore severely underdeveloped characters. (Lord of the Rings anyone?)

So yeah, character-centric > plot-centric. This applies to movies, TV series, books, fanfiction, you name it. I'd take Closer over Catch Me If You Can (and Havemercy over City of Bones, and Dexter over Alias, and Drop Dead Gorgeous over Draco Sinister) any day. Shit, I just fandom-dated myself really badly by mentioning that fic, didn't I.

By 'character-centric,' I don't mean plotless—it's mostly that the plot exists to push along the character development, and not the other way around.

Issues of the Week, BSG, genfic and Dollhouse )

Just to clarify, I don't consider 'plot-driven' an insult or anything. Nevertheless, I do believe bad writers don't try to write character-centric stories nearly as often as they do plot-driven ones (maybe it's easier to settle for the latter, because plot-driven fiction is the norm, and to part with that you need a firmer crafting hand, to have at least some idea of what you're doing? I'm not sure).

...And then Stephenie Meyer comes along with a primarily character-driven universe that has little to no plot or character development for at least 70% of any given book in the series, and I...I don't even know what to do with that.

Anyhow! I've rambled on for long enough. Do any of you guys have a preference? Is this a distinction that matters to you—in published fiction, fanfiction, or TV?

(Unrelated: Geek pride ftw!)
So I've been playing World of Warcraft for a week.

...

I know.

Trust me, I know.

Shut up.

I'm on holidays. I have time to spare. /rasp

It's so much fun, though, seriously D:

I have an awesome warlock, and a very, very badass rogue. Also a priest on her way to become surprisingly badass, considering how lame priests are by default *grins*


MMORPGing is a whole new level of geekdom for me. I think I'm irrevocably lost now. (Not that I wasn't before, mind you.) The next step is, I don't know, watching Star Trek, maybe. Or learning Ruby on Rails.

I'll have to give the matter some thought. But not right now—now, if you'll excuse me, I'll go back to demon-slaying in Shadowmoon Valley. *laughs*
christycorr: Belle (Beauty and the Beast) (Bookworm.)
Ladida. Hello again, LJ! I haven't posted twice in a row since Election Day—and I don't remember what the last time before that was. But don't mind me—it's just that, among other things, my UR fic exchange prompt is driving me crazy. I mean, dancing-on-the-hills, why-so-serious, stabbing-my-wife-and-son-in-a-deserted-hotel crazy. Seriously.

Also, I so very dearly wish Britney Spears' Womanizer wouldn't get stuck in my head at least twice a day. I blame [livejournal.com profile] defexxx, who listens to it all day long. It so doesn't help.

Meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] firstlightofeos, and pretty much everyone on my flist:

The Big Read reckons that the average adult has only read 6 of the top 100 books they've printed. Well, let's see.
1) Look at the list and bold those you have read.
2) Count how many you have read.
3) Reprint this list in your own LJ so we can try and track down these people who've read 6 and force books upon them.

The Big Read list )

49! *grins* And no, [livejournal.com profile] firstlightofeos, you definitely don't get bonus points for reading one of these in more than one language—if that were the case, I'd get two bonus points for the Bible alone, and a few for several others in the list *laughs*

I've started at least fifteen of the ones I haven't read, and, with the exception of five or so, I own the entire list. *sighs* I really need to finish reading all the books I bought while travelling. Damn.

In other news, Cruz has effectively replaced Opera as my browser of choice.

20 days until Christmas! And nine days until Runi arrives! Man, I love December.
I have a very, very serious problem I could really use your help with.

a picture is worth a thousand words and all that. )

I swear I'm not joking. *grins* I've no idea what to do, and I've wasted far too much time thinking this through. Help?
Download Day - English

Add your name to the list! They're aiming for millions of downloads (not updates, downloads of the full program) on launch day—and we all know Firefox rocks :D The Download Day in question should be at some point in June.

J. K. Rowling wrote an eight-hundred-word short story about the Marauders. Oh my God *dies* *WANTS* *has pre-ordered her copy of the book in question*
I've done a somewhat decent job of controlling myself these past few weeks. I've been to the big Apple store in Palo Alto several times, but I hardly ever bought anything. I always knew that I'd end up doing some kind of significant purchase there the week before I left and—er. Yes. Just got back to the hotel.

In Neil Gaiman's Sandman, Morpheus' big sister is Death. Considering that this is also my favourite Terry Pratchett character, I will name the new black MacBook Death. *laughs* And it'll totally speak in small caps.

Morpheus, my current MacBook, will pass on to [livejournal.com profile] plasticiner. Considering that I've also bought a Time Capsule and a bazillion other small Apple things, Vertigo will look like an Apple store more than ever now :D

As requested by Runi, my top 5 Apple products )
Stephenie Meyer is currently number one on the poll for Time's list of most influential people this past year. Oh dear God. Please click on the link above and give people below her a fighting chance—Twilight fans seem to have undertaken the task to get her to the top, and it's just...*facepalms repeatedly* No. Wrong. It's Harry Potter: Best Animated Independent Foreign Language Documentary all over again. Only worse.

Go ahead, give Meyer the '1' she deserves. *nudges*

Also, here are some ideas of people you may want to give high ratings to:
  • Stephen Colbert (naturally);
  • Jon Stewart (obviously *fangirls*);
  • Steve Jobs, Apple CEO (because I adore him, and I'm currently minutes away from his house);
  • Bono (because I had to);
  • Jimbo Wales, creator of Wikipedia (because you all know I secretly have an altar at home where I make daily sacrifices to him);
  • Al Gore (because he's cool).

    There are several other in/famous people, of course, from Amy Winehouse to Nelson Mandela. Take your pick. But *fumes* not Stephenie Meyer. Edit: Oh look, people agree with me *grins*

    Speaking of which, I read the Twilight series this week. It was every bit as awful and cringe-worthy as everyone told me it would be, and also highly entertaining. At least now I can follow (and contribute to) the constant debates at UR with [livejournal.com profile] _thirty2flavors, [livejournal.com profile] inksplotched, [livejournal.com profile] callmepatsy and others.

    In my last post, I asked for top 5 lists; I will try to post some of them in every post from now on.

    Five ships and the songs I associate with them, as requested by Liz, with download links )

    So... that ended up being ridiculously long. Plus, it took me a while to upload all the songs, so I won't do any more top 5 lists tonight. I promise the next ones will be briefer *laughs* And oh look, in the time it took me to finish this post, Rain got the #1 spot from Meyer, by a small margin. This probably isn't cause for celebration, though *grins*

    [livejournal.com profile] moon_dancing arrives tomorrow! *bounces*

    ETA, April 14th Stephen Colbert is #1, and Jon Stewart is #2! Smeyer's been kicked to the 39th spot. Brilliant.
  • Tee hee. Check it out!

    For some reason, this Shoebox icon post made me all nostalgic. I WANT A NEW CHAPTER, DAMN IT. Yes, [livejournal.com profile] ladyjaida and [livejournal.com profile] dorkorific, I'm glaring at you. *fumes*

    I've been spending way too much time at LJ lately. And I've been posting far too often. Is it the memes? It's probably just hanging out with Runi often enough that I see her at LJ every day and because of this I remember to flist. I wonder if I can keep this up once I return to Brazil.

    Speaking of memes... Give me something I can make a top five list out of. Anything at all: top five favorite socks, top five favorite smells, or anything you want to know my top five of. The answers will be in my next post.

    You know the drill.
    (Wow, I can't remember the last time I've had urges to update LJ this frequently.)

    Twitter is a microblog—all your posts must be under 140 characters, so you have to be concise. You can post as many times a day as you want, from the website, your favourite IMing software, Facebook or a Twitter downloadable client. You can also post and receive your friends' posts via SMS. You can even link your Facebook status to your current Twitter post!

    Yes, I do realise I sound like an ad.

    Anyway, some of my Brazilian friends have it, and [livejournal.com profile] discreetly convinced me to get one earlier this month. I jumped on the bandwagon a bit (or very) late, but Twitter really is an awesome way to keep track of what people have been doing at a glance. Not to mention Stephen Colbert is a Twitterer. (So is Barack Obama, and of course Darth Vader.)

    Go on and join! :D
    After...one, maybe two years, I've finally decided that this layout bores me. I've just updated a new mood theme (psychopath love!), and I've been looking for icons, but aah, choosing a layout is this whole project I'm not sure I'm bored enough to undertake.

    I don't particularly care about the latest news re: LJ no longer allowing free accounts, to be honest, but coincidentally I won't be able to post on Content Strike day (3/21) because I'll be travelling. Huh. I've read that they removed 'fan fiction' from the list of top interests—they didn't remove it from users' profile, right? If so, it's odd that I still have my 'fanfiction' interest there. Anyway...

    I'm leaving for Palo Alto in two days, and I haven't packed yet. Perhaps that would be a better use of my time. However, at the moment, I'm far too busy with a tough checkers tournament against a friend of mine. *rolls eyes* I almost wish [livejournal.com profile] deadcinderella's mother hadn't given me a large board for Christmas.

    Have you guys heard Maggie Smith has cancer? :(
    christycorr: Tenth Doctor (Doctor Who) (*?*)
    Okay, so "Albus Severus Potter" is a hilarious name. And "Lily Luna Potter" is pretty sad. But ... come on, Ronald Bilius, anyone? Ginevra Molly? As a rule, characters in Potterverse have tragic middle names, and no one bothered complaining about this (much) before. Why did DH make people start caring?

    (As for Charlie not getting married because he loved dragons too much... well, apparently every family has an Aberforth. After all, Charlie was the one who found out Norberta's true gender...)

    I love it that JKR keeps telling us stuff, I do, but... I kind of miss the times when she'd give us information that I truly liked getting (i.e. Marauder-related). Psh. I don't give a damn about second-gen; why can't she tell us more about MWPPL? *laughs* But ah well. It's all good, anyway. And I really liked the PotterCast interview! Some bits of it were rather interesting.

    In other news, I seem to have rediscovered my love for Tetris thanks to the Tetris Facebook app. It's insanely time consuming, but ohh, so relaxing.

    New Year's is in two days, and I'm not entirely ready to see my neighbourhood exploding with the millions of people who come here to watch the fireworks every year. Gah.

    Also, the fic exchange is driving me insane (yep, more so than usual), slowly but surely. *cries* Check out the fics you haven't already, though; most of them are pretty awesome.

    MacBook

    Sep. 2nd, 2007 02:58 pm
    My shiny new black MacBook has finally arrived! It is sleek and gorgeous.

    I haven't decided what to name him yet. Bah. I want to honour my HP obsession, but I read The Kindly Ones last night and my Sandman love has been rekindled; I may call him Morpheus. Plus, it's a nice tribute to my old Matrix obsession.

    (And the Dream King totally deserves it. He's so awesome.)

    Oh, decisions, decisions...

    *glances at MacBook* Fine. I've made up my mind.

    Welcome to the family, Morpheus. *hugs* I hope you get along well with Marvin, Aziraphale and Macphisto. And your lesser cousins (ew, PCs) Crowley and Echelon. :D

    And now I'm off to format Morpheus and re-install OS X and related apps (like hell I'd leave the (Portuguese) installation made by those incompetents at the non-Apple-exclusive store run on my baby). Ta!
