I'm having spring cleaning urges, like I do every year around this time. I need to go to IKEA and get another DVD shelf, because I've run out of room and started stacking them in already full book shelves. Not that BSG season 4.0 DVD doesn't look pretty next to a Terry Pratchett book and all, but still. I've cleaned, vacuumed, hung up pictures, sorted boxes, packed up a thing to [livejournal.com profile] ishie and now I'm wondering what my Internet-related spring cleaning project should be for Easter.

So, a poll!

[Poll #1377413]

In other news:

A mother in Pennsylvania has been charged with giving her 13-year-old daughter drugs and alcohol so the woman's boyfriend could get the girl pregnant, police said Thursday. Shana Brown, 32, is no longer able to have children but wanted to have a baby with her current boyfriend, Duane Calloway, said Uniontown Police Det. Donald Gmitter. The pair decided to drug the girl so Calloway, 40, could have sex with her without her knowledge, he added.


Excuse me, I'm going to go over here and feel ill for a moment. And don't read the comments to that story, because some dick went Anybody want to guess what color these people are? and that can only lead to more fail. On the bright side, it seems the kid managed to avoid the attempts at rape and will now hopefully get a better home.

In other FAIL news, Afghanistan has passed a new law that means Shia women must now get permission from their husbands before leaving the house and removes the right of women to refuse their husbands sex, unless they are ill. NATO, UN and generally anyone who is not a sexist asshat don't like this at all, which is no wonder, since this is FUCKING REVOLTING.

Cheer me up about humanity, someone?
misscam: (Shipping layout style)
I am mightily pleased with self, fo 'lo, I have finished my tag fix-up!

My tags.

Now, if you for instance hit fanfic: bsg you'll get all my Battlestar Galactica fic, or if you poke fandom: doctor who you can see me groan, yay and get silly over Doctor Who, or if you dare people: batshit you'll know more about Fred Phelps than your brain ever wanted you to. My tags were a complete mess, but now they should actually be fairly easy to work out.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] skybound2 knows no bounds to awesome and made me matching icons to my layout.

Wow, I've had this LJ a while now. A lot of entries. A lot of life, heh. A lot of friends. I don't know all of you as well as I wish, but all of you have in various ways added to my life. Thank you.

TV-show cagematch:
Lost versus BSG.

For me, that one's easy - Lost lost me around the fifth episode. (Bad pun, I know!) Sometimes, shows that sound just what you're into just doesn't work. So many friends tried to convince me I'd love Veronica Mars so very much and when I finally watched it, there was great loathing only. Possibly, the insistance of how great it was played a part in that dislike.

Come to think of it, I got into Battlestar Galactica and Doctor Who both without friends pressing - maybe recommending shows is the last thing you should do to get me into it, heh. Once I am into it, I want friends to share fun with, yes, but there is something about the sense of having taste dictated to me and getting nagged that easily turn me off. Of course, it probably depends largly how friends steer me towards something.

What about you? Can your friends have a negative or positive effect on what you go for?

Meanwhile, on the Net:


... WHAT.

Done by the smashing [livejournal.com profile] skybound2 and featuring various ships.

Now I just gotta sort my tags a (large) bit, decide if I want a new moodtheme, clean up some clutter, change around some more icons, sort my memories, delete some shit and I'm going to feel all reinvented.

Well, sorta. LJ spring-cleaning FTW!
misscam: (Social Interaction Will Cease)
So I read this yesterday and nearly chocked on a pasta piece:
Thomas Beatie, a married man who used to be a woman, is pregnant with a baby girl

Real life mpreg. Wow. I'm not sure what my reaction is apart from blinking somewhat stupidly at it. Huh. Mpreg.

Stolen from the flist:
Fannish friends! Languishing in your archive are posts of great justice loveliness - meta, fic, icons, random babblings that you suspect may have been written by the LJ fairy while you were sleeping. Some of your current flist may never have seen them. Some might be horribly embarrassing to you now. But don't be shy. Share 5 posts (or whatever random number you fancy) from the back catalogue of your LJ.

1. Cam's Tales of Batshit
Campfire tales from the depths of fandom. Starring I-believe-a-pixel-elf-is-real, Hellfire of Incest Love and Muslim Hate, the Tinhats of Infamy and Babydoll and the laminated letter.

2. Cam's Open letter to Doctor Who Fanfic Writers
Years on, I could still rant about several of things I did then.

3. Ten Lessons the Doctor Learned From Sex and One He Didn't / Rose Tyler's History of Sex / The Art of Not Having Sex.
I can use sex as a plot. Hurrah?

4. Down the Rabbithole With Bad Poetry
In which I wrote a love poem for Bush and probably made lots of people be convinced I did drugs.

5. On the soapbox about rape.
Not so much fannish, as something that cost me a lot to write up and I'm still very glad I did.

Gimme some of yours.
misscam: (HOY ALCOHOL)
So this post of mine inspired icons. Wheee.

I've done two lvl 70 WoW instances (sucessfully) in one evening. Must... sleep... Zzzzz.
misscam: (Mountains Norway)
I mentioned this once before, but I am doing so again now - if you'd like a 17th of May card from Norway, speak now or forever hold your breath. Or at least until next year. 17th of May is our national day, so I will send out cards with much Norwegianness. You can even request moose or fjord motifs or some such if you want.

I will screen replies to this post, so you can leave your address in a comment, or e-mail me at camilla.sandman at gmail dot com.

Now hold your breath. Cards will be sent out soon to the over 40 that asked. Hoep you like them.

There are actual people online who will refer to muslims as "towelheads". I... I have no words.

Except to make this very clear. If I spot anyone on my flist making such remarks or otherwise showcase such attitudes, they're right off it. Same goes for homophobic remarks. I don't like stupidity, and those things are stupid, offensive and a waste of my time. I don't care what we might have in common otherwise, or if we share a fandom or if you make splendid icons or write fab fic. Certain things I will not let slide in my playground. Okay?

Racism, homophobia and other excuses for acting like a hateful fuck aren't tolerated here.

Blah. I have a foul taste in my mouth from just typing that word now. Ugh.
misscam: (Oh - Freaked Ten)
God disproves of snark and mocking! (You ask me - if there is a God, which many believe but Cam does not - he's had to have a hell of a sense of snark and humour to create the world as it is. I'm just saying.)

So I'm staying up basically cos the cat has nicked my bed, and he's looking so comfy and cute I haven't the heart to disturb. I know. I am so the slave to my cat's cuteness. He's got his paw over his eyes and it's all so very cute. (Aaaw.) I even went on a fic reviewing spree and cleaned up my inbox, all thanks to the cat.

Planning on fiddling with my user info, so was wondering if anyone had a little testimonial about me? (A la the people here.) All for fun, of course.

Also, I need to get myself a Doctor Who banner with both Nine and Ten, who I have now decided to lust equally. You know, in the spirit of socialism. Yes. Not because I'm fickle and greedy and refuse to choose, noooo.

I want series two. Wail.

Oh, and for fun paranoia - ten things I'd like to say to people on my flist meme.
1. See this? This is my personal space. See that? That is you stepping right into it.
2. You really are much too nice.
3. I like capitalization.
4. Sometimes I think you like me. Sometimes I have no clue. But you ain't dull, that's for sure.
5. Don't try so hard, okay?
6. LOVE.
7. I felt guilty because you like me more than I like you.
8. You know, sometimes you really rub me the wrong way.
9. There are cats that aren't as cute as you. Aaaw.
10. I have no idea at all why you friended me.

And usename meme that half my flist seems to have done.

What is your username?
[livejournal.com profile] misscam

Write a little paragraph about your name, why you chose it, what it means to you, etc.
It's call very simple. My name is Camilla, and Americans very quickly begun calling me Cam. And as nicknames go, there are worse ones, so I took it on. But since Cam can also be a boy's name (it seems), I stuck Miss in front of it. Then I wrote OFUM and became known as Miss Cam and well, it's stuck.

What would you change your name to, if you were changing it?
Well, I am fairly happy with it, but [livejournal.com profile] scotshagger or [livejournal.com profile] camogles might do it. Alernatively, I'd want to steal [livejournal.com profile] slemslempike's.

Why that?
Because one is wishful thinking and one is a truth?

What is your favorite username?
[livejournal.com profile] slemslempike

Nemi! Norwegian!

East of the Sun, West of the Moon was updated with ch. 30 yesterday here (CSI Forensics) and here (ff.net)

ETA: I updated ch. 31 as well - here (ff.net) and here (CSI Forensics).

Speaking of said story - I AM DONE! I AM DONE! All 36 chapters and epilogue written, baby. *dances around* I did a word count and it's over 60000 words in all. Cripes. A little tweak, a little beta and my longest CSI fic ever shall soon be done. *pats self on back* I'm DONE!

I actually feel a little bit sad too. I'm done. Sniff.

Now, an idea for my user-info - I'm stealing this one from [livejournal.com profile] norwegianne, as I found it an excellent idea and I'm a mean thievses, precioussss.

What I'd like is for as many as possible to comment on this post with something about me, and then I'll gather the comments in a separate post, with your usernames attached, back-date it, and link to it from the user-info.

So, if there is something you think people should know about me... if there is something you'd like to tell me about me? Something which you've gathered about me from reading my posts? Or something else, feel free to comment.

My LJ comments stats. Many, many people a'posting )

My, my LJ is quite an anon party. And I sure reply to a lot of comments in my own LJ.
misscam: (Bitch by justapassanger_)
I'm feeling slightly annoyed of late. Maybe it's all the OMG!DRAMA!OMG!Complications! wherever I turn. Ever had a desire to hold a blinking neon light with "ENOUGH" to the world?

But I have fallen in love with the "complicated is the whole point" quote (it's on one of my Catherine/Warrick icons, if you missed it. Actual quote from the show), so maybe I shouldn't say anything. (And that quote would make a kickass subtitle for a multishipper place, I'm telling ya.) Maybe complicated and drama is why we can love the simpler things.

Like Easter marzipan and writing for the joy of it. But sometimes... Sometimes I almost do miss the younger, younger me, where the borders of my life was far as I could walk and one day seemed the longest time.

I sigh that kiss you,
For I must own
That I shall miss you
When you have grown.

- A Cradle Song
by William Butler Yeats

But memories are illusions - though like the best illusions, with a hint of truth. We do construct our memories. Perhaps we also construct simplicity. The world is so complicated that making a shelter of the simple is alluring. Perhaps that is what I like to do in my little Norwegian cocoon. And perhaps that is why I get annoyed when it is disturbed.
