I knew, finally, I would never be through.

Just some simple icons of Zhu Yilong being pretty. Feel free to snag. 🙂
I can’t believe him sometimes, he doesn’t seem real… 🙂
Thanks to qikiqtarjuaq I got my hands on the complete series of 0.5 diors, which Bai Yu apparently likes to pretend doesn’t exist. There are no English subs (yet, apparently qikiqtarjuaq will post a Bai Yu cut in the next month or so), but I couldn’t resist and put this together for my own amusement.
As far as I gather, Bai Yu plays a dorky straight guy named You Dongdong, who keeps ending up in compromising positions with his boss – a situation not helped by their coworkers having dirty minds and shipping the hell out of them.
Didn’t do too much today, except laundry and this very important gif for sinning of Guardian‘s delectable Zhu Yilong, which leaves me speechless:
I also liveblogged episode 21 of Guardian and then proceeded to watch Thai BL series Love by Chance:Continue reading “Some liveblogging”
First of all, I decided to use my free time to finally move my recs blog from Tumblr – I’d moved there after Delicious, but ever since the tag cloud script broke last year, it’s become impossible to navigate. So my recs collection (started in 2015) is hosted on recs.fandomish.net – but you can still follow it all over the place: Tumblr | Twitter | RSS (including a Dreamwidth feed) | ActivityPub (as firstname.lastname@example.org)
Talking ActivityPub – I’d been quite frustrated that it wouldn’t work for my hub here. Today I finally figured out that it was because the WP install was in a subfolder instead of on its own domain. So I moved shirasade.net/me to me.shirasade.net, and now you can find me in the Fediverse as email@example.com.
And last but not least: Today, I finally watched another episode of Guardian – I still can’t handle it in large doses, I’m waaaay too emotionally invested, the feels are killing me. So naturally I liveblogged episode 20:Continue reading “Finally, more Guardian – and some webby stuff”
This morning, I walked into the city centre to run a couple of errands – I’ll try and get outside for at least a while every day, even if I have to take it easy.
Back home (after a break to recuperate), I was finally able to hang the curtains I bought to keep the cold drafts away from my back – the drawback of living in in a 100+ years old house. Did it in two chunks, but overall I mastered the ladder (my ceilings are 3m high), and I really think it’s making a difference. \0/
Other than that, I took it easy. I still don’t feel up to the amount of feels Guardian never fails to evoke, so I sought out some more Asian BL… and struck gold a couple of times:Continue reading “Quiet day, more BL – and a drabble”
Got released from hospital this morning. My mom came, and we took a taxi home before going to the pharmacy and grocery shopping. By which I mean, I made my 79-year-old mother carry my shit. 🙂Continue reading “Guess who’s back home?”
Tomorrow’s the surgery. It’s at 1pm, which sucks because it means that my last chance to eat a little something is before 6am. Fun!
The pre-op jitters have started to set in – it’s not that I think something will go wrong, the small surgery I had last year helped alleviate concerns about full anesthesia, and a hysterectomy is one of the most common procedures. But still, it’ll be all out of my control, and I hated waking up still groggy, barely able to keep my eyes open. (Yes, I’m a control freak, what gave me away? *g*)
I’m trying to keep my mind off things by packing, filling an external hard drive with tv shows (all of Guardian, for one – it’ll be perfect to watch something with subs because I can’t do anything else) and watching New Amsterdam with the radiant Freema Agyeman. Still, it’ll probably be a looong night – and I’ll probably spam Masto a little tomorrow morning, while I wait around at the hospital. (I have to be there at 10am.)
I apologize in advance, but I asked my mom not to come until afterwards. I’m more of a “pass the time by reading” kinda girl – it’d be probably not be fun to have to make small talk for a couple of hours.
I decided it was high time to finally finish my last Fandom Trumps Hate contribution and finished a Stucky vid for Brenda:
It’s a bit of an experiment for me, style- and music-wise, but I think it turned alright. 🙂
Sunday is also Shadowhunters live-watch time with some of the girls from the Jalec Discord. We’ve reached 3×09, so we’re in the middle of the emotional rollercoaster that’s the end of 3a. It really is a lot of fun to have people to liveblog with, especially since we all share a love for our OTP but also the show in general.
