I'm catching up with some genre Supernatural fics over the weekend and I have been crying for the last two days. OK, yes, one I brought on myself because if was a death-fic but even just the sentimental ones are laying me low. Due to this binge reading, I've practically ignored the fic I'm supposed to finish and I am so behind on the transcript for "Deep Breath". I will make myself finish those, I will. I just need to find happy fics or avoid them completely.

So, if any of you out there are fans of Supernatural, Psych, Doctor Who or White Collar please rec me some happy fics or at least fics that have minimal risk of tears.

I found the Australian series (Miss Fisher's Mysteries) streaming online and I love it!! I've watched all but the last as I type this, I've gone and gotten the first book from the library.

Basically Phryne is one of the Bright Young Things of the 20s. She was raised in a poor family in Melbourne but her father comes into a title and she's sent away to finishing school in Europe. She returns to help a family friend and solves a mystery. She likes the idea so much she stays and becomes a detective.

The novels are by Kerry Greenwood.

Here's a trailer for one of the episodes.

I made this big huge post yester day and, knowing all the troubles, I should have copied it. I really can't remember much so I think this will be bullets.

--now hitting offices with resume and cover letter in hand.

--reading a great series by Lauren Willig about spies in the early 1800s (in her world, the Scarlet Pimpernel was real!) The first book is The Secret History of the Pink Carnation.

--My latest fic, a Psych/Doctor Who crossover is close to 3000 reads at 2948! 2963!

--Cataloging my DVDs

--ALready cataloged my books and put little Dewey tags on the spines

I had an iTunes meme but I think I'll wait until everything is clear before re-doing that

Well, my attempt to re-read the "Sword of Truth" series has fizzled out again, coincidentally at the same book. It's like I'm going through everything else to avoid reading it so I guess that means I really don't want to. I find they just drag too much with the political aspect and not enough of the action. When books range from 700-1100 pages, you need momentum and it's not happening for me. I think they'll be going back to the book swap where I got them, pehaps this week.

Bad Me!

I almost forgot again. With Legend of the Seeker on the small screen, I've decided to start the "Sword of Truth" series and finished Wizard's First Rule last nigt at around 1 am. Parts I had figured out and parts were like, "Oh, ok". I've put a hold on the next two and we'll see where we go from there.

I've started a little Christmas cross-stitch and have a few others I found online to try. My current DW/TOC story is fast approaching the point to where I don't know what to do next. I have general ideas but nothing concrete. Well, general ideas meaning typical Doctor-Confronts-the-Aliens-in-Their-Lair moments but that's about it.

I already posted the answers to last week's songs so I'll just jump right in with this week's.

1. ...As golden days break wondering Chance as love takes a train
2. All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go
3. Is this the real life- Is this just fantasy-
4. How does it feel To treat me like you do
5. Oh yeah, I´ll tell you something I think you´ll understand
