Random Things!

How's it going?

I told myself I would work ALL day today...so, um, naturally, I'm finding an excuse to take a break every 10 minutes. :P I've already read a merthur modern-AU Merlin fic. I keep hoping that John Green will post the next World History Crash Course, but he hasn't yet. I have also already eaten a banana and a piece of pie.

So, since I can't think of anything else to do on this break: You get a random post!

1. THE SUPERNATURAL NEWS
I've very much been enjoying the pictures of the pretty men in their pretty suits...pretty. Also, apparently Supernatural is moving to Wednesdays in the fall! I remember being pissed off when they moved from Thursdays, but then I got used to Fridays...so I'm sure I'll get used to this as well.

It does, however, mean that I will no longer be drinking copious amounts of wine while I watch the show. This may disappoint some of you, who enjoy it when my reviews are made while quite tipsy...and I'm sure it'll delight others, who like it when I can form coherent sentences. Interestingly enough, it's not because of hangovers that I can't drink (much) during the week. It's because alcohol actually gives me insomnia. I can't fall asleep until I've sobered up, which means that sometimes I can be up until 5 or 6am. I think there's a certain threshold where I can drink so much that I'll pass out, but that's probably bordering on alcohol poisoning, so it's really not a practical solution to the problem.

2. TIMELINE!
I've caught up with my timelining, so I just need the finale to air - and then I need to watch it twice, and then I'll be able to post my S7 Timeline. The good news is that thanks to Kevin Tran (man, I love that kid) I have DATES for the last three episodes. I'm really hoping that the finale stays consistent or at least isn't blatantly inconsistent. In any case, I'm happy to report that I know what Sam was doing on his birthday this year (or next year, depending what year we're in).

3.DOMESTICITY
I finished making myself some kitchen curtains yesterday! This is a bigger feat when you consider that I do not own a sewing machine. I think they turned out pretty well for only spending $10 on fabric. Coincidentally, I didn't get any work-work done yesterday...which is why I am forcing myself to work ALL DAY today, so... uh, I should get back to it.

That being said...for the love of god, talk to me in comments or something. I'm crazy bored.

Your curtains are adorable! Nice work. I have no idea how to sew... I'd never be able to make anything like that. XD

Also, you've caught up on your timeline? Awesome! Out of curiosity, what was Sam doing on his birthday this year/next year?

Thanks! If I took more detailed pictures, you would notice that my stitching is not actually that good - but it'll do.

Yes! All caught up with the timeline! I just need to watch the finale twice and then check over the timeline for typos and false/missing logic. :)

Well, in the morning of Sam's 29/30th birthday, he and Dean were seeing Charlie Bradbury off at the bus station. :) Then, I think, they went out and got plastered, because there's an inexplicable 1 day gap in episodes even though they didn't even change cities. (Which is another hilarious thing, because Dean says that they'll figure out what the clay is "a couple thousand miles away from here" and then they drive to...*drum roll*...the south end of the same city. :P)

I hope they did go out and drink.. I like the image of them going to a bar and having a drink celebrating being alive so long. XD Lmao, 'thousands of miles away' more like one mile!

Maybe that was their strategy "Wait, they'll EXPECT us to go thousands of miles away - let's fake them out and stay here!"

Logically, Sam would be turning 30! I think that's a milestone worthy of a drink or two. :)

Haha... That actually makes sense. XD

Aw, Sam is 30 now? Or should be. I think that definitely deserves a few drinks! :D

Yup! Everyone will be celebrating it next year - but if we (and the show) were following logical time, then Sam would have turned 30 this year. :)

Haha... That actually makes sense. XD

It's actually how I used to get away from people. I have no stamina for running, but I've very good at hiding. So, I would just get out of sight as quick as possible and then lay low while my pursues were the ones that "ran away" (note: this is all during friendly games of course.)

I once spent about an hour laying completely still in some long grass and leaves...with people standing about four feet away looking for me AND I was wearing plaid, so it wasn't even like I was particularly camouflaged.

Is that 30 with the imaginary year or without? :)

With. He's 29 without. (And this is all ignoring the conundrum about how time passed for his soul in the cage.)

Can't wait to see your timeline for S7.

Congratulations on making your curtains. That is quite the accomplishment. Pat yourself on your back. What color are they? I hope you got some work done today despite not feeling like it.

I did get some work done. I think I did quite well, all things considered.

The curtains are red and white plaid...kind of country-kitchen-y. I originally wanted to go with red and white stripes, but the fabric store only had plaid. I think it actually worked out better anyway, because there's just a hint of green in the plaid, so it ties in my houseplant nicely with my otherwise red kitchen.
