Let's have an update on my life! Fandom and Real, because that's how I roll.

1. I forgot how much I like Jann Arden. I've been downloading all of her old music (I own the CDs but they are at home in Canada) and wow. "Good Mother" especially is so fantastic. It always, always makes me cry because it describes so perfectly how I feel about my parents.

//I've got, money in my pocket
I like the colour of my hair
I've got a friend who loves me
Got a house, I've got a car

I've got a good Mother
and her voice is what keeps me here
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself


Cardboard masks of all the people I have been
Thrown out with all the rusted, tangled, dented, goddamned miseries
You can say I'm hard to hold
but if you knew me, you'd know

I've got a good Father
and his strength is what makes me cry
feet on ground, heart in hand, facing forward
be yourself

See why it makes me cry? Oh, *sniff* I miss my Mum & Dad so much. Can't wait to see them in June!!

2. I'm re-watching Dawson's Creek and OMG, the chemistry between Pacey and Joey was there all the way back in S1. Mostly because you can tell Katie and Josh wanted to ravage each other soooo badly, and plus, you can tell that Katie hates James Van Der Beek SO SO much. It's splendidly awesome.

How in heaven's name did the writers of that show EVER think Dawson would appeal to a mass audience? Or, for that matter, to anyone? I mean, for the last time, SHUT UP, Dawson. Signed, the world.

3. Continuing with Weight Watchers. It's getting a bit easier, though for a while there I was gaining and losing the same 4-5 pounds which is fucking frustrating. What I'm doing now is sticking to a few main things: I eat mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and wholemeal breads and pastas. BUT, and this is weird for me, I'm letting myself have small portions of my favourite foods -- like extra mature cheddar and peanut butter and good salad dressing. It's the best. So a day would be:

Breakfast - a smoothie made with frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, frozen cherries, strawberries, skimmed milk, 2 tbsp wheatgerm and 1 tbsp flaxseed

Lunch - a piece of cheese, mixed peppers, cauliflower, crispy parma ham, cherry tomatoes and some sort of dip

Dinner - wholegrain pasta with a tomato based sauce and a side salad of mixed grated carrot, crumbled sesame crispbreads, veggies and light feta with REAL olive oily dressing.

SO good and I'm actually steadily losing weight. I mean, so far. Plus I'm doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred almost every day. It kicks my ass so hard.

4. My fic writing is not going well at all. I can't seem to get it. I am nowhere near Buffy at the moment so can't edit any chapters of By the Rivers Dark to make them fit for viewing. I am trying though. I want to write BSG fic, but don't feel worthy. I have a Titanic fic that I'm almost finished, but I mean, who wants to read that? I'm very sure that I will crank out a Pacey/Joey DC fic circa Season 5 (AKA the season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS) that will fix that season of HELL AND FORGETFULNESS.

5. I am obsessed with Ray LaMontagne.

6. The constant media attention on Kelly Clarkson's weight is depressing me. Why is that what it always comes down to for a girl? Why is she always measured by that, like it somehow defines her worth? Poor, poor Kelly. I mean, I sense she doesn't give a shit, but that's how she rolls. I, on the other hand, would be crippled by the hatred and bile out there. And why? For what? Just because she has gained a few pounds? Fucking HELL.

That's all I've got for now. I think the rant finished me off.

I've followed your LJ since back in the DC days (go P/Jo!) but rarely comment... I TOTALLY agree that looking back at s1, P/Jo were totally hot for each other. Repressed sexual tension and all that. Gawd, I love them. I cannot believe I ever supported a D/Jo pairing in season 1 (I saw the light after Dawson became a royal ass in s2).

Also, I just started WW and it's been a good week of learning what foods have a lot of points and what fills me up, etc. Thanks for posting your daily routine... so helpful!

If you ever want any Weight Watchers tips or anything, let me know. I have zillions of yummy recipes I've made up in order to still have my favourite foods. I've been loosely following it for almost two years now and consider myself an expert, unfortunately. LOL.

Just let me know and I'll email you some deliciousness.

And God, yes, P/Jo. I supported whatever Joey wanted, so in S1, I wanted her to get Dawson. But I always preferred the zingy chemistry between her and Pacey and couldn't imagine what she saw in Dawson in the first place.

What's hilarious is watching interviews with Katie Holmes where you can tell she's like, "Uh, no" to any suggestion of D/Jo.

You MUST write BSG fic. If anyone must, it is you.

I'm so scared! I tried after the finale, but it's frightening because the show is so powerful and well written.

I love Jann Arden too! Yummy.

And yes, media with weight. It's no wonder that 90% of the women in the Western World (especially North America) have weight issues. I mean really!
