The good news is that the trip was even more epic than this video, and that's really saying something.

Nikola Tesla is rocking out in his grave.

The bad news is that I'm probably going to start buying Jelly Babies on the internet to have them shipped to me.

Okay, not really, because getting to the U.K. from California by boat would take forever. My attention span would never stand for that. Anyway...


brb, taking my dream trip with my BFF. Will be back July 9, or more likely July 11, when I crawl out of bed having recovered from jet-lag and excess awesome.

If you need me, I'll be checking my email occasionally; PMing me will get to me just as fast. I'm not planning to go back through a month's worth of Flist -- I love you guys, but I also love my sanity -- so if there's a post you want me to see or a fic you want me to read, really do feel free to link me to it in the comments here. I *will* check it out when I get back. :)

Also, I will be sneaking back within the next few days to leave you with a 21,000-word Master/Ten adventure and about 34K of Merlin fic. Less tragic now? :D


tierfal: (The TARDIS)
Except that you can't see my Meta fic yet, because I haven't posted it, because... I utterly suck at getting shit done this week. x_x

I'm kind of in Oh No School Is About to Start *Flail* Mode, and I am all kinds of fail. D:

Oh, well.

Yesterday and then zoo pictures. )

tierfal: (Matt - Wanted)
I spent yesterday exploring a huge estate house with endless gardens, hanging out with John Falstaff, having a picnic, and then seeing Harry Potter.

What have YOU done recently? XD

No, it's a good thing I've been busy, because otherwise the fact that I haven't gotten any writing done in days would be making me incredibly depressed. O_o

"Half-Blood Prince." Oh, where to begin. XD

Since everyone on my flist has seen this film... Well, there are spoilers, if you haven't. XD )

The other thing I did yesterday was... tour Filoli! :D

In other words, go make a cup of coffee while this picspam loads. If it ever loads. Make a few cups. )

Anyhoo... [livejournal.com profile] eltea's super-legit o-fic story, All Our Yesterdays, is now read-able even if you aren't a member of [livejournal.com profile] pulped_fictions. ^^

tierfal: (Sparky!)
Yee-up, we went to San Francisco today, because one of my step-dad's uncles is a dentist, so he and my mom get their dental work done there.  And then we have dim sum. 8D


Word Up

Yes, indeedly, I'm home at long last... I took a shower this morning, in my real-and-true-and-mine bathroom, which, while we're still having an ant problem, was quite devoid of the crickets that sometimes enjoy congregating in the one in Oak Ridge.  Also, around here, the water's never cold, even if somebody did just take a shower before you.  And even in the Death Humidity of Tennessee, cold showers aren't refreshing for more than about a minute before you're just howling inwardly and hurrying your freezing ass up...

I think that made sense?

I am now going to scuttle off and type up the eight -- count 'em, eight -- handwritten pages I threw together on the various planes.  And yes, it's for the last piece of the 'HaM' series.  Don't get too excited, though; most of it's fairly sub-par... I blame the stale plane air.  Rather than, y'know, my inability to write. XD

Well, I'm not paralyzed
But I seem to be struck by you
I wanna make you move
Because you're standing still
If your body matches what your eyes can do
You'll prob'ly move right through
Me on my way to you

- "Paralyzer" - Finger Eleven -

...That is a really interesting video.  Creative, cool, and quite unexpected.  Give it a go.

"Cake it shall be!"

I actually had an Eddie quote stuck in my head in the shower today, on the subject of shower controls: "There is one nano-millimeter between fantastically hot... and fuckin' freezing."

Too true.

A hearty Tierfal welcome to [profile] orientalblossom, the newest member of the Tierfal LiveJournal Flist! :)  Now that you have access to all my friend-locked posts... well, best of luck to you and your sanity, dear. x)

In a few short hours, I'll be on a plane, headed home.  Despite all my bitching yesterday, I'm actually feeling very good today.  I have lots of good excuses for the bitching yesterday, though I shall not bore you with them, because that would be cruel, if not unusual.

I'll probably update again when I get home, 'cause I'm cool like that.  And by "cool," I mean "torturing you."

Day Nine

tierfal: (SQUEE!)
Or, a pictorial progression through Northern California.

I think this pretty much sums up the entirety of the types of scenic things that one will see driving the four hundred miles from Medford, Oregon back to my house.  Just about.  Pretty much.

Unfortunately, lots of these pictures kind of suck because (a) we were in a moving car, as usual, and, ah, bending a few speed limit laws at some points; and (b) there's a lot of smoke in the air because half the damn state is burning down again.

That's right, folks.  The state of California is an autopyromaniac.  Now you know.

Also finished rereading Luck in the Shadows on the way back.  GAWD THAT BOOK IS SO AMAZING.  I'd actually forgotten how intense it was in some places.  Just... FLIPPING YES AHAHAHA.

I may go into more useless detail about unnecessary things later, but I've must rush off and see [profile] baronanriel before he is forced to kill me.  And I shall lend him LitS.  DAMN STRAIGHT.

...[profile] eltea will see the pun. >:D

Day Eight

Jun. 28th, 2008 06:40 pm
tierfal: (Die Plz)
Almost hoooommeeeee! :D

So I managed to submit for that contest.  By six minutes.  All hail [profile] eltea, plot genius and beta goddess!

Turned out pretty well, though if I'd had today, I feel like I could have clarified a lot of things and made it much prettier on the whole.  Eh.  Close-the-hell-enough.  I wrote a lot of it in a moving car, in my defense.  And got a little carsick during the climax.  It was intense, doods.  INTENSE.

Now that I have over-pimped the hell out of it...  "I was six when I found out how I was going to die."

I then proceeded to start the spin-off piece for Mark Kessley of the Sam and Adrian universe.  <3 Mark.  Fer serious.  He amuses me. x)

After that brief literary interlude, we return to our regularly-schedule picspam.

...so that's that.

Day Seven

Jun. 27th, 2008 07:45 pm
tierfal: (Cake or Death)
So there's more epic picspam.  I'm ALMOST HOME, GUYS.  *crawls through parched desert, on hands and knees, panting*

And now my bb [profile] eltea needs to get done knocking the audience's socks off, 'cause she's performing, and when she's done, she can beta my entry for the contest that ends... today. D:

*clings to [profile] eltea's ankles from eight hundred miles away and gets dragged on-stage, ruining the entire play*

Day Six

Jun. 26th, 2008 07:09 pm
tierfal: (Ronicus)

Only three more days...

Day Five

Jun. 25th, 2008 08:30 pm
tierfal: (Sparky!)

Today started out really crappy, but then it turned out to be totally amazing.  I love it when that happens...


That's all I know.

Day Four

Jun. 24th, 2008 03:15 pm
tierfal: (Trust Me)
Tomorrow, it'll be halfway done.  WHOOOOOO.

So we're in Canada now, which kind of worries me.

There actually isn't much picspam this time, 'cause my camera battery is virtually dead, and I spent the vast majority of the car ride trying and failing to sleep.

But yeah, just five more days to go....


I'm coming back, love

My one dream
My only master

- "Wuthering Heights" - Pat Benatar -

This song gave me unrealistic expectations about the book.  Like expectations that the book wouldn't suck.

Day Three

Jun. 23rd, 2008 07:20 pm
tierfal: (Toast)
Oh, God, is it really only three days?


So we did tourist-y things in Seattle today.  We wandered the huge market-thing they've got, which was a bit like the one in New Orleans that I saw in July '05, except that instead of Mardi Gras masks, there were bouquets of flowers and seafood stands everywhere, and it was cold instead of so humid you were pretty sure that if you bought something, you'd stick to the vendor.

My camera is now doing its "I HAZ NO BATTERY LOLZ" shut-down thing, which is generally temporarily remediable by way of turning it back on and pretending nothing ever happened, which is my usual electronics strategy.  But eventually that, too, fails, and it's a bit of a hassle.  Maybe I'll have to, like, actually, like, buy more batteries or something.  Blasphemy!

So we'll see how the rest of this crap goes.

I wanna go home and chill with mah peeps alreeeaaadyyyyy. XD

Day Two

Jun. 22nd, 2008 08:18 pm
tierfal: (SQUEE!)

...temporarily, at least.

Today is [profile] eltea's birthday, which, because I am teh uber-lamez, I am missing.  DAMN.  In any case, my darlingest darling is hella old now, but I think she's still got a couple good years left in 'er.  HUGS FOR EVERYONE, though she gets dibs.  Hugs are rather cheaper than drinks, you know.  And more fun.

[profile] eltea, snugglemuffin, please don't mold.  I luff you the way you are now.

(This is what we call apostrophe, because [profile] eltea is actually performing in a show right now, ergo I cannot actually be addressing her.)

CRIPES, I'm even less coherent than I feared.

I have an image-spam-filled excuse, though, which is called...

I'm a bit off at the moment, but I will do my best to catch up on all you peeps' entries.  And stuff.  Yeah.  *pokes brain*

Brain: *squish*

An ominous onomatopoeia, to say the least.

Day One

Jun. 21st, 2008 07:52 pm
tierfal: (Confused Jack)
Road Trip, Day One:
Tierfal's status: alive
Tierfal's mood: weirdly optimistic
Tierfal's blood content: evidently eighty percent crack, given the above

YessirreeBob, I am going to be giving you a play-by-play at every possible opportunity.  Run.  Run FAST.

Aw, God, time to go do other things.  How am I going to survive when there are, like, actual things planned?
