I have more of these thought out, but I am not completely sure how to voice them. I'm not even sure if I got the Jimmy/Steve thing written down correctly. Also any and all input is welcome, even if you think I am a complete idiot! Tell me!

Jimmy/Steve also Spoilers: )

Next up on the Shameless US thoughts is Mickey, I think? I guess it will be a surprise!

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me,
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.

You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practise a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.

If anyone ever wondered, I really do live in the middle of nowhere Norway... It is pretty though.

Why is it that the only ship I actually ship in Game of Thrones, got all of one fanfic? Seriously, how can I be one of like two people who ship 'em?

I wish I could write fanfics, then at least I could write for the pairing myself

Look it!

And if you watch carefully, you will spot some military personnel in uniform! Which is awesome. Their banner says: For everything we have and everything are! Which is pretty neat. 

Anway it is from last years pride parade in Oslo. I'm thinking about going to the Pride Parade this summer with a friend. I really should be a bit more "out and proud" as they say. Half the time I forget that I am in the minority, it might be because I am bisexual not lesbian? I dunno...

 I am alive and stuff, just seriously busy with an group exam. 

Which is either going really well or to hell, only time will tell really. It will be handed in on Friday no matter what so I will be back to normal bloging/posting schedules then at least for a couple of weeks, before I got my oral exam to prepare to. 

Anyway whomever said Film and Television studies was chill should be shot in front of their families (which it turns out you can say on television) , because it is hard work if you want a good grade. 

I don't really think anyone have noticed I'm not around much, but just in case. Now you know why.

On the list of things I never thought I would do in my life, making icons was pretty high up there, but they are made. I don't think they are completely crappy? They are nothing fancy though. And I still haven't gotten to making an icon of what I originally wanted when I decided to make my own icons for once instad of spending hours trying to find the correct one...   Under the cut:  )
Credits to: for the episode stills (or whatever they are called?) 
And if you feel like it I guess you can credit me if you use 'em?

I have no comments on the actual thread but: 

When I was a kid my dad took away my Pokemon* cards and put set them on fire... 

Thinking of it, I am still slightly annoyed by that, in a why the hell did he do that way. 

* Spell check wants to fix Pokemon into bespoken...

Sooo, some of you might know I play World Of Warcraft?

Well I do, badly... Anyway I hit level 80!

I have never been so proud of myself! Seriously, over two years of playing*! And I finally hit a level cap!

*Not two years of active gaming though, I play like a month every three months...

I figured I should write one of these?

Most of my info is on my profile, for you who haven't read it: I'm Renate, at last count I've been on this earth 24 years and I live in the middle of nowhere Norway. I study film and television and I own a cat her name is Luna and if the saying about pets being like their owners is true, then you should be scared.

On my friends locked entries, you will find exciting posts where I complain about stuff (usually school and my family), so if you want to read them, just friend me. I do occasionally mention fandoms, and I am up to discussing them. Just don't expect to find long essays on my feelings about a fandom...

Ehm? What to say? I'm guessing you ended up on my journal because you read a comment I made over at F!S? Because that is the only forum thing I'm on on DW and any other way of finding my journal would be interesting and I beg you to leave a comment telling me about how you found it.

Don't be afraid of talking to me, here or in PM's or anywhere really. I'm pretty sure I don't bite, though I sometimes try to be funny and/or sarcastic, it always fails...

Anyway if you want to know something or if you just want to tell me I am an idiot I guess this is the place to do so.

So, I was watching a show that I shall not name so I don't spoil people, but the thing was that they stole a cellphone which they needed to call the police with, and they couldn't because it was password protected.

That just confused the heck out of me, because at least in Norway you can call 911 both when the phone is password protected or if it don't have a sim card. As long as the battery is charged you can contact the emergency services with a cell phone.

Am I just being pretentious and assuming my country does it so every country does? Or was it a big fail from the show, where they just throw logic out the window in favour of making it more exciting?

My love for Grey's Anatomy is slightly embarrassing.. . But oh God I want someone to talk about it with!

In other news, buying a new laptop tomorrow or on Tuesday!
