I've spent pretty much all of my allocated fangirling hours (except for when the new pictures of Christina surfaced - gosh she's pretty!!) in the last few days on these two very pretty women, Angie Harmon and Linda Kozlowski (the former mainly due to Sharon Bowers's Night and Days series, which is one of the best fanfics I've ever read, and I re-read it a few times every year - there's no direct link, scroll down to L&O). And I kinda wanna ship them, but it's bloody hard. If anyone can come up with, you know, any plausible crossover ship, any way that any characters they've ever played could possible have run into each other, that'd be really awesome. (And it's not that I mind RPFS-ing them, but it kinda feels like giving up... characters are more fun!)




And in the meantime, I grabbed this meme from [livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr:

Ask me a fandom, and I will tell you:
+ OTP
+ Runner-up
+ Honorable mention(s)
+ Crack pairing(s)
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't

So I just saw Christina's episode of Lonesome Dove: The Outlaw Years, and I gotta say, never have I ever seen such a pointless character. Especially not considering she was only in this one single episode. We talked about it afterward, and we could not figure out one single reason for the character to exist. Because the thing is, she's featured fairly prominently. She has probably 5 scenes, or something, hangs out with all the main characters, has quite a few lines, but none of them are relevant. She basically stands around, speculates and offers commentary, but never does anything. Now, if she'd been an established recurring supporting character, it would have made sense, much like a lab rat on CSI might stand in the hallway and offer some pointless but slightly amusing parting comment at the end of a scene, but that's not the case. She's an unknown character, only in this one episode, and she does nothing (to use the CSI comparison, imagine if a random person walking their dog past the crime scene stops to tell the CSIs that they're sure to solve this, and then shows up again at a bar at the end to pat one of them on the back for doing a good job). It was weird.

Positively surprised by how solid the show was, though. And Kelly Rowan is very very pretty (and for some reason reminds me a whole lot of Scully... it's probably the hair.)

And also, I really really loved Christina's hair and outfits. Follow the cut for some screen caps.

Dear Christina,

Where are you? I miss you.

(I know where she is. She's shooting her new show up in Vancouver for like another month, and no word on when it'll air... but I was watching SIS tonight, and my TV misses her...)

Wistful regards,

Quote(s) of the Day:

With a bit of backstory: I finally gave in and got a twitter. For the longest time I refused to get one because I had the sinking feeling that I did not need yet another thing online to follow. But when I realized I would have missed the following had I not had a kind friend who alerts me when things happen on twitter that I should know about, I gave up and gave in (and I'm ashamed to admit that the process took about 30 seconds). Janina Gavankar twittered the following last night (Gah! What idiot decided that posts wouldn't get a proper time-stamp until they've been up for 24 hours?):

4pm: "Yaaay! Christina Cox is in town! Time for the funs! For those who don't know: http://tinyurl.com/at4bqz"

8pm: "now we r going 2 get walked on by tiny thai women! Fyi: this is not a couple's thai massage, not that there's anything wrong w that! ;)"

~Janinaz on Twitter.com

And even though she specifies that what I'm assuming is the two of them (though really, I guess she could be getting Thai massages with any random person she is not coupled with...) are not a couple, the fact that she un-bidden associates in those terms at all tickles my fantasy, and I feel more than ever compelled to write that Teldy/Mehra fic I never finished last year... Yay!!! (And if anyone has yet to see the awesome interview that Christina and Janina did last year, for the love of goddess, click her tinyurl up there!!)

Anyway. So I have a twitter, and it's here: Twitter.com/fallonash if anyone wants to look at a blank twitter page. I'm so unlikely to ever update it, I'm quite fond of LJ, thank you very much, and am not looking to scatter myself over more online places.

However, if anyone wants to recommend me cool twittering peeps I should be following, or has one of their own, please link me!

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate with you. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

(also, special offer, if there's anything else you'd like me to elaborate on, put that in the comments and I will update this post with it)

Here are 5 things [livejournal.com profile] wizened_cynic gave me to elaborate on:

1. Christina Cox!
Christina, Christina... Ah, Christina. How do I do this without it turning into a 2000 words photo essay? Christina is my True Love du Jour, my current crush and obsession, and overall really awesome lady. It all began with Ladycops about a year ago (and there is a longer-ass elaboration on this subject here) and since then there's been no looking back. Christina is a pretty great actress, who's done a lot of pretty great roles, and she seems like a cool, sarcastic, intelligent, thoughtful person, who I just happen to find incredibly sexy, and that makes her kinda rare, and kinda perfect for a crush, because the pretty ones aren't always great actresses, and they don't always choose projects I'm into, and vice versa, but Christina is just an 'all of the above' kinda lady, and I love her for it.

2. meatballs
Meatballs? It's because I'm Swedish, right? I don't mind meatballs, though, meatballs are pretty good. I will say that whatever it was they served at my Boston high school that was labeled 'Swedish Meatballs' is something I have never seen anywhere in Sweden. Huge gross chunks of meat in some sort of chunky tomato sauce, that tasted mostly of chili pepper and salt. No thank you. Proper meatballs are small and elegant, preferably homemade when you mix the mince meat with egg, onion, dried breadcrumbs and your choice of spices, rolled into tiny balls and then fried in butter until they're a lovely even golden brown. You then eat them with potatoes, plain brown sauce, and lingonberry jam. (and some heathens put ketchup on it as well. gross.)

3. Xena
I love Xena. It is, in my humble opinion, the best TV show ever made, ever. Now, I know it doesn't have the best actors, or the best scripts, or plots, or special effects, or anything like that. I know that. But over-all, looking at the show from the first season all the way until the last episode, it has the most solid messages of love, redemption, and humanity I've ever seen. It's nothing like those overly moralizing shows where some people always do the right thing, and if they don't it's because they're tragically mislead. Xena is about being human, having a dark side, wanting to do the wrong thing even if you realize that it's wrong, standing up for what you believe in, fighting your instincts when your heart and mind tell you different things, fighting your rage and jealousy and vindictiveness, not running away from but instead trusting in love. All this, and much much more, does it do while using a story-telling narrative full of kick-ass female warriors in skimpy clothing, gods, mythical creatures, action and adventure, and a massive dose of never ever taking itself too seriously. I love it above all other shows.

4. Ellen
Ellen came along at *just* the right point in my life. Now, I've never much differentiated between different kinds of crushes. I have crushes on actresses, TV characters, authors, books, RL people, and most of the time it's just a source of enjoyment that makes me feel good and be happy and have something exciting to daydream about. However, RL people are in the dangerous position of being able to hurt me in a way none of the others can, because they're all unattainable. Now, at the time, I had just come off a 2-year insane crush on a girl that I know (#5, anyone?) and I was emotionally spent because it was kinda painful towards the end, and so I threw myself headlong into Queen because that was so incredibly safe. It was *dudes*, for heaven's sake, and Freddie had been gone for 15 years, so it was as safe as was possible to find. So I did that for 6 months, until I came to my senses and realized that they were *dudes*, and then they started showing Ellen in the early afternoons right when I got home from work. And it was *perfect*. Funny, light-hearted, happy, gay, gorgeous girlfriend, plenty of material to keep me busy, everything I could have possibly wished for in a new crush at the time.

5. msn
I have a love/hate relationship with msn. Really, it's more hate than love, but since it's one of the first places I ever went online it's tied in with a lot of nostalgia. I was a faithful hotmail user for a long time (until I discovered gmail and promptly turned my back on hotmail for good). As an IM program it mostly annoys me, though, although I suspect that's why you associate it with me, but I haven't used it for years. Once I discovered Trillian and realized I could have all my IMs in one place, I haven't looked back.

eta: 6. Emily Procter from [livejournal.com profile] sakuracorr
I love Emily. I know the moment I fell for her, and it's when she tells (W)Horatio that she feels like a squirrel on too much caffeine in that season 1 episode of CSI: Miami where she accidentally inhales cocaine. Besides being lovely (and blonde. The blonde thing was a big hurdle for me at the time, I'd never fallen for a blonde before) she also had an adorable comedic side that Calleigh hadn't really showcased before then, and sadly hasn't since, but with that scene I knew it was there, and I fell hard. I'll always love Ainsley for being that adorable All. The. Time., but Calleigh was where I first fell for her, and she'll always be my main Emily love. And Emily herself seems to be just great, she does what she wants to, how she wants to, doesn't seem affected by any societal pressure to be or do anything in particular. She decorates houses, wears vintage dresses to award shows (or was that someone else? Me and clothes...), collects bugs, plays poker, runs triathlons, and appears to be a wonderful combination of intelligent and caring and excited about everything in life, and often gives off the impression that her mind is filled with pink cotton candy. What's not to love?

So Nancylee had this to say today:

"CALLING ALL 3WAY FANS — It’s time for everyone to get their collective energy together. As we say in my culture, time to burn the sage and shake the rattle. We are very close to having a big announcement about 2nd season and the DVD. So light a candle, pray, dance, hum, pound the drum, shake a fist at the universe, whatever it is you do to make things happen. More as it unfolds!"

I generally don't do any of the aforementioned things, but for the potential of bringing more Ladycops into my future I'm pretty much willing to try anything. And you all should too! Yay 2nd season!! Yay DVD!!

Quote of the Day - good news and bad news, but really, the so-called bad news wouldn't have been news to be bad unless there had been for the good news. So anyway...

"Had dinner with our favorite LadyCops last night, Christina Cox and Liz Vassey.  Both are working hard.  While we were together we talked about what’s next for our favorite “undercover” lovers on LadyCops for 2nd Season.  It’s going to be a blast, with some cool guest stars lining up to play hot cops and pesky perps, as well.

Our DVD is finished, but we are not going to be distributing until after the New Year – as it’s all part of the negotiations for 2nd Season.  Sorry about that.  We want to get our stuff out to you guys as fast as we can."


~Nancylee via 3WayTV.tv

OMG Yay!! More LadyCops in the 2nd season!!!! OMG Yay!! DVD is finished!!! Grrr Arrggh, how will I ever last until *after New Year*??? *whiiiiine* But over-all, awesome!! There *is* a DVD, and one way or another I *will* get it at some point. Delays be damned, I have to believe that.

And a meme from [livejournal.com profile] michellek: Go to your calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2008. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

January: So running a night-orienteering race in early January, freezing degrees, ankle-deep in snow, hail flying horizontally on the wind, while feeling the first touches of a cold, might not be the smartest thing in the world, but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun!
February: I've been behind watching episodes, so first here is last Sunday's ep.
March: You know, that time of the year, yet again.
April: In Puerto de la Cruz there's a lovely botanical garden.
May: Thank you, CuteOverload, for posting the most awesome picture ever.
June: So apparently femslash has its own day now.
July: So I'm home again, and have been since late Friday/early Saturday.
August: I'm still pretty much dead to the world.
September: So Jane Doe a decent action film, but so far (12 minutes in) it's got some of the dumbest stuff ever.
October: OMG Cameron suffering from post-traumatic stress??
November: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] fyca!!
December: Hmm... So the X-Files movie is finally out on DVD!!

In conclusion; boy was my year mostly boring according to that review...

Without anything remotely intelligent or interesting to say, I bring you my new wallpaper of Christina for no other reason than it makes me ridiculously happy (I've had the same one for two months, and it's a lovely picture, but this time of year calls for something that's not in black-and-white). It's not in any way well-conceived or gorgeously designed, or anything (although the subject matter is of course gorgeous ;) ), just some of my favourite pictures from all over the place of my favourite lady. fyca, you might want to stay away from the lower left corner but I think the other ones should be fine (as if you'll bother), and Nancylee, I'm so sorry about photoshopping you out of the picture.
