Okay, remember how I posted that little voting entry a few weeks back asking everyone which fandom I should icon? Well, Buffy got the most votes along with 100 icons. So I was sitting here at the desk, clicking through the 100 icon communities, seeing what themes they all had, and I stumbled into whedon100
...and...well...I just made a claim to do 100 icons from the 'Earshot' episode of BtVS! Eep! But I figured if I did it, I would have made a commitment and that would make me follow thru a bit more.
So, my job has been officially announced now, the fax came thru to all the branches this morning. Everyone has had only nice things to say to me. I'm really excited and looking forward to this new adventure in librarian land (OMG! I get to open my Giles figures now!!!) but I'm sorta bummed about not being at Crofton or West County or my other favorite branches with my buddies. I just figure I get to crash everyone's holiday parties, right?
In other news, we're actually going to be in town for New Years so simontrueheart
and I are in the plotting stages of a mega-shindig of some sorts. Perhaps even on the level of hootenany, though it's too soon to tell. I'm thinking of some sort of trivia showdown, maybe with SceneIt or one of the trivial pursuit games and prizes! Then, I would show
case all of our christmas presents, which will probably be mostly DVDs and video games. Ooooh, if I get one of the giant star wars lego sets, maybe we can all work together to make one!
Or, I could finally dig out my plans for a Buffy party and follow thru with that. Or maybe even a Jossverse party, allowing showings of Angel and Firefly. I had very elaborate plans, with special games and themed drinks (like, instead of a "Bloody Mary" we'd drink "William the Bloodys" and I'd carve the celery stalks into spikes/stakes, get it?) and such. And Buffy bingo! It wouldn't require any actual knowledge of the shows, I'd just make some bingo boards and we'd go from there.
OR, this one would be a bit rougher, OR we could do a best of 2005 party, and watch some of the movies that came out this year that were really good. Or even TV shows. Except the TV shows would be harder to get on DVD. Maybe we could do an "in memoriam" of TV shows and watch 'Arrested Development'...and then we could watch 'Serenity' cuz that's definately one of the best films of 2005...okay, never mind, that party would be far too out of control....I need to stick to tv shows so that we have time to mingle.
the only food we had left in the fridge was the making for lemon chicken....i love me some lemon chicken so 9pm could not come sooner. jimithingy
has to tape 'House' for me so keep those spoilers under a cut as I'll probably just watch a Veronica Mars with dinner instead of waiting for 10pm to happen....mmmmmm lemon chicken...
