hardparade: (one direction; louis (drunk))
So I have a Google Analytics account, and I stopped checking it about a month ago because the stats now are actually TERRIFYING, but yesterday I was a little tipsy and curious and decided to look at it again. And first of all:



GUESS WHEN I GOT INTO ONE DIRECTION *despairing laughter*

But also, I remembered that a while ago I made a post of all the most amusing Google searches that led people to my journal, and so I decided to do another one of those just for the lulz. We need them after that Mojo interview. (Which is here if you haven't seen it but man, it is TORTURE and you're probably best steering clear, trust me.) Anyway, I feel a bit mean about this because I'm sure my own Google searches are super weird but some of these are just so bizarre and hilarious that I have to share them.

louis liam interview penis - hahaha.

best latex shiner – I like this one.

boobs - I mean, lol, but also how many pages of results did this person have to go through??

i am living underwater - ......

larry stylinson what does this mean )

Good times. In other news, does anyone know of a free image hosting site that a) allows bulk uploading, b) lets you keep the original filenames, and c) doesn't freak out over bandwidth? Because it seems I basically can't have a moodtheme anymore these days, you guys keep exceeding my Photobucket bandwidth. Which is pretty AMAZING tbh because I've never had that happen before, but also filenames are kind of necessary for moodthemes and it seems like all the other image hosts just rename them to random numbers/letters. :( NEVER MIND I THINK I FIXED IT

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] expastic!

I hope you have/had an awesome day, bb, and I miss you too. ♥ I MISS ALL OF YOU. I feel silly saying that when it's really my own fault that we haven't been in contact, but, you know. It's still true. I just can't seem to shake this slump I'm in, at all. But I will.

In the meantime, I think we should discuss this:

The sorting hat says that I belong in Slytherin!

Said Slytherin, We'll teach just those whose ancestry is purest.
Slytherin students are typically cunning and hungry for power. Important members include Draco Malfoy (Harry's nemesis), Professor Severus Snape (head of Slytherin), and Lord Voldemort.
Take the most scientific Harry Potter Quiz ever created.
Get Sorted Now!


Uh. I'm a Slytherin, you guys. And I really think you should all take this test and tell me what you get, if you don't know your House already. It's a pretty long test because it's kind of in-depth and everything. I always sort of figured I'd be in Ravenclaw, but never took a quiz because most of the ones I'd come across were like "WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE ANIMAL, A) A LION, B) AN EAGLE, C) A SERPENT, D) A BADGER?"

And yeah, my results were Slytherin with 68, Ravenclaw with 56, Hufflepuff with 51, and Gryffindor with 32. SO THAT'S...INTERESTING. I am actually genuinely interested to know what you all are. And...kind of hoping some of you are Slytherins too. I'm not cunning or hungry for power! I am quite determined and like to bend the rules, though. I'M JUST WORRIED THIS MEANS I'M EVIL. *clings*

I just started re-doing all my tags and a thought struck me. [Poll #1379636]

First of all, BEN BARNES NEEDS TO STOP MAKING ME FIND HIM ATTRACTIVE IN RECENT PICTURES. )

ALSO, I have two unfinished Skandar/Anna/Ben fics. Two. HI, THAT IS CLEARLY INSANE. One was weird enough, and now I have two, and I can't decide which one to continue because they've both come to a sudden standstill, and is there even any point in carrying on with either, really, because once again, y'know, INSANE.

The first one I quite like the structure of and there's quite a bit of plot, and plenty of weird!Ben which makes me lol even though I wrote it. It involves voyeur!Skandar (and also drunk!Skandar, which is always fun) and there's a bit where Ben talks to hotel staff while only wearing a bedsheet. And I really like the way I've written the Ben/Anna, because it's not a ship that I like, but it's all pretty casual and Anna has him wrapped around her little finger which is how I totally see their non-existant relationship.

The second one was when I decided to ditch the plot. It's a lot more angsty and smutty and Ben and Skandar have this hot rivalry thing going on.

I'm totally stuck now though because I like what I've got of both, but I can't combine them, like...at all. And I really don't know where I'm going with either. The first one would be a LOT harder to try and finish because it is SO HARD to go from plot and humour to porn. Without making the porn funny too, and I don't really want to do that. The second one I could probably finish, actually, if I just put in a bit more effort, but idk whether anything should happen between Ben and Skandar, and I stopped writing in the middle of the smut and that's always hard to get back to.

HERE, HAVE A SNIPPET OF EACH. )

SO NOW THE QUESTION IS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

HERE IS A POLL TO MAKE THINGS MORE SIMPLE. )

THAT IS ALL, I WILL GO BACK TO QUIETLY STRESSING OUT NOW.

I'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but is there a sort of generally-accepted pseudo-canon for Nathan's past? Like when he joined the navy, when he started work, when he met Heidi, etc. Do we even know how long he's been with Heidi? Gah.

I'm sure I'm just going to be told that people just make it up, haha, and I know I probably should come up with my own idea of these things and just stick with it, but it's the kind of thing I always get nervous about when writing past-fic. I know there is no specific canon, but if anyone has their own really fixed idea of when things happened it would really help me out. :( I don't know why, I just really struggle with that kind of thing.

I AM WRITING PETRELLICEST AND IT HAS NOT BEEN DELETED IN A FIT OF ANGST YET. AND IT'S BEEN A FEW HOURS. THAT'S GOT TO BE A GOOD SIGN.

*clings to fic and crosses fingers*

It will get finished, it will get finished, it will get finished...

I also have an Italian-related question! My book says that 'e Lei?' means 'and you?'...like if someone asked 'how are you?' and you wanted to say 'I'm good, and you?'. But that's formal, right? What's the non-formal 'you' in that context? It doesn't say. :( Help me, Italians! XD

...I probably shouldn't be tackling fic-writing and Italian-learning at the same sort of time.

OK, I don't know if any of you know who Noel Fielding and Simon Amstell are, but Noel's being a guest team captain on Simon's pop quiz panel show Never Mind The Buzzcocks" at the moment, and for the past few days I've been really wanting to slash them.

The thing is, I cannot for the life of me work out who would top. This probably sounds ridiculous.

In all the slash I've read with Noel in, he's been a bottom, which I totally agree with and can imagine perfectly. But Simon! Is totally a bottom as well.

SO. Even if you have no clue who these guys are, I would like you to watch the following clip on Youtube and offer me your opinion. I know it will be difficult, because you'll only be seeing a brief conversation between the two, but...please. I'm so stuck.

Oh, and also, the clip features a rather controversial joke of Simon's about Courtney Love. Personally, I found it hilarious, but loads of people were really shocked. (Including Noel, as you'll see, but that's fair enough seeing as he's actually friends with her.)

ANYWAY.

Clip.

Noel is the black-haired one, Simon is the curly-haired one. It's only 46 seconds long! Please have a go.

Agh, I am slightly worryingly obsessed with Noel Fielding at the moment though. He's everywhere, lately, because he and Julian Barratt are promoting the new series of their surreal comedy show The Mighty Boosh. And *sigh* I'm just in love with him.

Here is a small picspam just because I can't help myself. )

Phew. OK. I'll go away now. My brain has been a crazy place these past few days. All this Noel everywhere, and my best friend just got two adorable tiny little kittens so I've been round there all the time playing with them, so my mind is just like, NOEL FIELDING! KITTENS! NOEL FIELDING! KITTENS! and I can't get it to shut up.

I'm so confused.

I've just spent like, quarter of an hour trying to find this out, and it still makes no sense.

What does Ron go on to do for a living? Because I read some articles that said JK said that he became an auror, like Harry, and then I read some that said he helped George with Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes.

So which one? Or both? Or one, and then the other?

:/

I wouldn't usually care so much but it's for a future!fic I'm planning and I want to make it fit in with canon as much as possible, aside from the pairings. (Ron/Ginny and Harry/Hermione.) Weirdly.

So yeah. Help? :(
