I have a freckle in the middle of my chest, just to the right of my breast bone. AND I HATE IT, purely because I can only just see it on the edge of my vision when my eyes are down, and every time it catches my eye, I assume I dropped food on myself and go to wipe it off. Then I remember than no, dumbass, it's a freckle. You have had it forever.

This problem is heightened when I'm fishing Cadbury Buttons out of a partially eaten chocolate chicken. With less grace than the average 3 year old. That it's melted chocolate on my chest feels like such a safe assumption in moments like this.

I am in the middle of a substantial update, but this was very important.

HI MY WEEKEND HAS BEEN LAME. Nothing happened, I have just been bored and am PMSing, which makes me tremendously miserable BUT THEN TODAY I WENT INTO TOWN TO BUY THINGS TO BAKE. I did not have self raising flour and I wanted to make fairy cakes. I also had nothing to decorate them with and wanted more food colouring for the icing, since I only had red.

It was largely unproductive in terms of decorative things, nowhere had anything other than the basic sprinkles etc etc. I almost got cherries and stuff but decided I didn't really fancy going the classy route as opposed to the cutesy route, so I got sprinkles and sweets and stuff. And blue and green food colouring.


(forgive the fairly crummy image quality. I took this on my iPhone, SINCE MY CAMERA BROKE AND ALL)


I always forget exactly how happy it makes me to bake. Like, it makes me really happy. I always underestimate the power it can have to pick me up. It is so fucking therapeutic, damn. I love that it has this methodical but creative process to it, that it feels so productive and rewarding to go from all of these raw ingredients to having it all slowly combine to this smooth, pretty little bowl of batter. And it makes my arms fucking ache because I am weak and soft, but I even love THAT. It makes it more rewarding. I refuse to use a processor because it feels like cheating, I don't feel like it would be even half as fun. I love the smell and the way that the icing sugar puffs up into a little cloud of dust when you tip it out of it's bag, and the relief and satisfaction when you take the tray/s out of the oven and everything is golden and perfectly risen. The whole thing reminds me of being little, too. Of baking on a Saturday with either one of my grandmas. It's a big part of why I find it so comforting and relaxing, it puts me in a totally different mindset and I feel calm and carefree for a while. Seriously, I am legitimately happy right now.

Also I just read Kristin's calendar for when all of the summer shows are starting.

01. True Blood I was aware of, but YOU GUYS IT IS SO FUCKING SOON!! Yay, because USofT and Nurse Jackie are almost done :(

02. WHY IS HUNG STILL SO FAR AWAY. June 27th, boo.

03. FUTURAMA IS STARTING ON JUNE 24TH, WHY DIDN'T I KNOW THIS?! Ahhhh, I hope it's good, it has been so long (the specials don't count, and they were only okay anyway) ♥

04. The C Word is not The C Word anymore, it is now The Big C? I preferred the original title, but am just happy that it came to fruition, I didn't know where they were with it. Just that it was cast and slated for like, autumn? But it starts August 16th!! Which is still forever away, but God I'm excited. I absolutely fucking love the teaser trailer. LOOK AT IT;


So good. Darkly witty and pretty deeply sad. And who the fuck doesn't love Laura Linney, anyway? It looks awesome in gen, have the full trailer;


05. Weeds is back the same day as The Big C starts, and since last season was actually really good again, especially toward the end, I'm looking forward to it again. I should probably rewatch last season though, it is something of a blur.

SO I FEEL KIND OF ALIVE AGAIN AFTER HOUSE?

YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I NEEDED THAT. NO. IDEA. TO SCREAM AND HIT THINGS AND IMPLODE.

No, really. I feel creative again, I feel genuine excitement and enthusiasm and I don't even know. I've been thinking to myself for days that I needed to somehow really let go and be loud and animated and alive, and this was SUCH a great outlet for that, it took me out of everything and woke me up and reminded me how important it is to cry over things that aren't a part of real life, to be removed and involved at the same time.

I don't even KNOW. Welcome the fuck back. Finally.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY. I AM SO SERIOUS. TOO MANY THINGS, TOO MANY THINGS, TOO MANY THINGS.

- You know that point in your life when you realise the house you grew up in isn't really your home anymore? All of a sudden even though you have some place where you put your shit, that idea of home is gone.
- I still feel at home in my house.
- You'll see one day when you move out, it just sort of happens one day and it's gone. You feel like you can never get it back. It's like you feel homesick for a place that doesn't even exist. Maybe it's like this rite of passage, y'know? You won't ever have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself, you know, for... for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something. I don't know, but I miss the idea of it, you know. Maybe that's all family really is. A group of people that miss the same imaginary place.


Garden State will always resonate. I swear to God. There are few films that strike a chord in me even half as much as this.

In other news, I have mad love for Parks & Recreation right now. Mad love. I always liked it and gradually fell for it more over the course of this season, but re-watching it? It's the only thing I can find lately that has the ability to make me completely switch off and stop thinking. It's such a gorgeous little pick me up of a show :) I'd highly recommend that anyone who didn't initially like it give it another shot. It's turned into something pretty unique, warm and well rounded. Surprisingly subtle, too. It's kind of a quiet show? I don't know, I just know that I find it exceedingly soothing to watch and it makes me smile, so.

WHY DIDN'T I KNOW THAT JULIANNE WAS GOING TO BE ON MOTHERFUCKING 30 ROCK. WHY.

NO SERIOUSLY, I AM SUCH A FAILURE RIGHT NOW. I only know because Lauren told me on Twitter :( I know shit all about anything because comparatively speaking, I hardly get on the internet and it is NOT OKAY. Like, I am just catching up with SO much stuff now and immersing myself in all of these things that I love and GOD, it's overwhelming because I opened up Photoshop, which felt great, and I'm handling actually getting stuff done pretty well but there is SO much and I feel like my LIFE just isn't fucking BIG ENOUGH right now. I don't even know. I hate having so little time and going so long between being able to check LJ, and it all builds up so I never get to be especially thorough and I hate that there's essentially shit all I can do about that. Because there ARE only so many hours in a day.

But still, it makes me sad that I can miss something like this so easily. I need to find a balance, somehow. Because it's not just stuff like this, I am so disconnected when it comes to you guys and that's even LESS okay. But I am having so much fun today, just having Gemma time. Seeing new pictures of Jill, and the No H8 campaign photo of Lisa (and I've loved that campaign for ages anyway), watching the 6x07 sneak peaks, downloading new Glee songs, getting to read about you guys a little more than I have been doing, being creative. So I want to find more time for this - as happy as I am right now, there have been points this past week where work has been insane and I have so much going on in my head that it feels like I'm just floating through everything. Stepping back and enjoying this stuff feels really good.

I think my approach to life right now needs to be something akin to Liz Lemon's when it comes to love and sandwiches - "I CAN HAVE IT ALL!!!". Because lord knows, when it comes down to it? I waste a shitload of time. I need to fucking motivate myself and MAKE time because it's not impossible and I miss this and I miss all of you ♥

SO YEAH. JULIE ON 30 ROCK. What the fuck. I have always wanted her to do a guest spot on one of my shows but never thought she would because she just doesn't do TV. She's not really done TV since she was just starting out. AND HOLY SHIT I JUST LOOKED INTO THIS AND READ WHAT SHE'S DOING FOR IT. HOLY SHIT. DEAD. DEAD. DEAD. DSKHFGSKJDHFGSKJDHFGS!!11!!1 And that this news is only like 3 days old, so that's not quite as bad as I thought, lol. BRING IT THE FUCK ON, MAN. Aw man, I really wanna flail at my sister right nao and she's fucked off to Egypt for a week. Inconsiderate betch.

Lol I STILL have yesterday and all kinds of other shit to talk about. I WASN'T KIDDING ABOUT THE SPAM, OKAY.

My lack of Julie icons is UNACCEPTABLE.
