appalling_cynicism: (Daydream believer)
I kind of feel like I should post something even though I have absolutely nothing to say. In lieu of actual content, I offer picspam of the smokin' hot Sandra Oh. Seriously, Grey's Anatomy has the hottest women on television.

appalling_cynicism: (Guns and cigarettes)
Anna Bligh had botox. I don't get how this now makes her an unfit politician. I'll admit, her comparing it to putting on a bit of lippy was not her smartest move, but it does not warrant the wrath now pouring down upon her. Seriously, this does make make her a whore, a bimbo, a complete failure at her job; it makes her human. It makes her an ordinary woman who is under increasing pressure to look 'better' and 'younger'. This is so fucked up. Judge her for her policy, not for this.

While we're on a vaguely related note, I am adding Emma Tom to my list of people I would jump. This is because she is awesome.
18th-Dec-2008 12:25 am - Day 3 some more.

Oh my God! Kate Walsh got a hair cut and looks even hotter! I did not think it could be done! I need to stop using exclamation marks! This does necessitate some picspam, I think. Admittedly only one of them has gorgeous new super red hair, but she is stunning regardless.

...I want her so badly.


Again with the Kate. )
17th-Dec-2008 09:08 pm - Day 3!
appalling_cynicism: (Mmmm)
Today was kind of fantastic. Mum and I went for morning tea with an old friend and her mum. D and I have one of those friendships where it doesn't really matter how long it has been, we always find something to talk about. It is easier now than ever, her daughter is gorgeous, if a little whingy.

Gingerbread men cookie cutters!

Scrapbooking is brilliant. I'm putting together a 21st pressie for one of my favourite people in the world. It has made me realise that I have almost no photos if myself because I am usually the one with the camera.

In things that don't make me happy, why must all my crushes be either fictional, someone I'm never ever going to meet, and/or twice my age? Actually, there is one exception but he is one of my favourite people's best friends. That puts him strictly off limits, if there was any chance he'd be interested in me anyway.
2nd-Dec-2008 09:52 pm - More picspam!
appalling_cynicism: (Beautiful)
Mostly Kirsten Vangsness, with some Kate Walsh (me? posting compulsively about Kate Walsh? never) thrown in at the end. My LJ is far more shallow than I ever would have predicted. I swear in real life I am not this shallow. I have opinions about important things! Well thought out opinions. Well, some of them are well thought out. Okay, I have opinions and we'll leave it at that.

I wish I was brave enough to dress like Kirsten Vangsness, she is just so beautifully quirky and adorable and I am just so boring.

Here is the pretty )

Okay, I've decided I am going to post an opinion about something relevant. It will probably be something inspired by The Courier Mail. It does seem to inspire some strong reactions, usually through its continued stupidity, ignorance, and shit stirring.
26th-Oct-2008 01:24 am - Fannish ramblings
appalling_cynicism: (Hippie chicks rock)
I have one more assignment, two more exams, and one more semester to go.

Am I a freak for actually enjoying where Heroes seems to be going? I mean, I do wish the characters (especially Mohinder) would stop being so fricking stupid, but that's been the case since season 1. Also, Matt and the tortoise are love. Oh, and I recommend reading Jack Coleman's blog on TWoP, it is a bit hilarious.

Recs )

Some songs )

12th-Oct-2008 02:16 am - Re-write is not going well
appalling_cynicism: (Words fail me)
I still have about 3000 words to write, and I really don't want to do it. I already did it once, dammit, I would rather bang my head against the wall than write it again.

So, instead, I am going to picspam the unspeakably stunning Gina Torres.

Why, hello, Gina Torres )
27th-Sep-2008 01:25 am - You can take the girl out of the country...
appalling_cynicism: (I'd pay to see that)
I have escaped from the city and finally made it home. 4 years of university may have taught me nothing except that I am a country girl at heart. I know there are a lot of bad things to be said about life in a small town, I've said most of them at one time or another, but I have roots here that I just haven't been able to establish in Brisbane. I know it is not the universal experience, I have friends who have thrived down there, but I'm just not one of them. I do, however, very much appreciate the large potential friends pool. I had about 3 real friends in high school because I didn't drink and drinking was (is) the primary way of socialising. I got to Brisbane and met people who did not define friendship as getting paralytic on the weekend. While I don't think I'll end up back here when I graduate and go looking for work, if I get my way I'll end up somewhere like here. If I ever have a family of my own, which I am not at all sure about yet, I want them to have what I did.

On a lighter note, I do believe I promised recs and picspam.

Recs! More specifically a House, a Who, and a Harry rec. )

Lee )
I'm thinking maybe Scarlett for my next picspam. Also, why isn't Pushing Daisies back on yet? I want my candy coloured world filled with gruesome murders and pies back.
7th-Sep-2008 01:35 am - Awesome!
appalling_cynicism: (Whittling time away)
I really hope the next Futurama movie is better than the first two. I mean, they are still awesome compared to most other things, they are just less awesome compared to everything else Futurama. I have to say that just in case ) really, truly freaked me out. Bring on 'Bender's Game', I say!

I have been stress baking and trawling the Dinosaur Comics archive to avoid my exam preparations and assignment. The assignment in particular because I have no idea what I am doing or where to start. I somehow need to analyse the evolution of Australian cinema by looking at an actor's career. I'm thinking probably Judy Davis.

I still can not believe she chose McDreamy over McVet. Stupid Meredith, Chris O'Donnell is far hotter and Derek is an arse. Is it wrong that I feel nothing for Denny? Seriously, nothing. I was almost glad to be perfectly honest.

It puzzles me that I haven't failed more subjects at university.

I offer a Freema pic and a Kate pic, as these women are stunningly beautiful.

And now I'm dead from hot )
30th-Aug-2008 04:31 pm - More of my crush on Kate Walsh
appalling_cynicism: (Mmmm)
And we have Addison! I love her, even if she did cheat on Derek. It's not even just the sheer hotness, it's the way she owned what she did in 'Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head' when the patient was being horrible to Meredith. From that moment on, it was love. The hotness does not hurt though.

I'd forgotten how much I loved Burke/Christina at the beginning. It got kind of horrible towards the end, with tremor-gate, but before that they were my favourite couple on the show. I'm almost up to 'Deny, Deny, Deny' which is my single favourite episode of Grey's Anatomy, if only for when Burke gets on the bed.

***

I have two more lots of lecture notes to write up for my mid-semester on Tuesday. I'll have those written before I go to bed, so that just leaves a skim through my text book tomorrow. I shall be celebrating my exam with Futurama!Thursday, probably involving cake as well as the two Futurama movies.
