HARD LUCK ANDY DDDD:

ohh andy darlin! you almost had that swiss bastard right where you wanted him but you just couldn't hold on! D:

i felt so bad when he lost. like, tears in my eyes kind of bad. it was just so sad for him. i was so sure he was gonna win once they got into the 5th set because federer was getting so uptight and pissed off and i thought andy really had the edge over him. he put up one hell of a fucking fight though and i really sincerely hope he wins the us open and gets the confidence to trounce federer AND nadal in next years' wimbledon.

on another note, i hate those stupid wimbledon interviewers. it's like, once they get the opportunity to talk to andy or roger or pete samprass, they can't stop. i could tell that afterwards, all 3 of them were kind of just like UGH. andy from the start was probably like "FUCK OFF I'M TIRED AND DEPRESSED" and then roger and pete seemed the same after talking to them for a little while and they just KEPT on going.

*sigh* well anywho, this is what i get for getting involved in watching sports. it's a good thing i don't follow football or i'd probably turn into a proper hooligan. XDD

i wonder if there's tennis hooligans.. if not, we should get some. XD i'll lead the way.

once again, hard luck to you andy and here's hoping you do well in the us open and in every grand slam next year. =D

YAYYY

RODDICK WON. YAY.

I'm shamed to say I was a little worried Murray might pull through.

He played well though.

But YAYYYY RODDICK.

Best of luck to him in the final on Sunday! =D

Note To Self

Get new icons.

As lovely as David Anders' neck is, I think it's getting a little old. XD

Andy Vs. Andy

I'm watching the match right now.

Roddick 2 2
Murray 1 3

In fairness to Murray, he's been playing pretty well. Same for Roddick, who seems to have upped his game and is playing less aggressively than I've seen him play before.

Third set was wow. Although I was swearing under my breath when Murray caught up from 2-5 to 5 all, I have to say fair play to him for it.

See, I don't hate Murray. He seems alright. He plays off the crowd a little and shouts a bit too often, but maybe that's just the Scot in him. I just hate the BBC (and in fact, John McEnroe.. YOU'RE AMERICAN STOP TRYING TO BE BRITISH) for being so annoying. They have trailers, for Chris' sake. Trailers. Of Murray. All Murray. Just clips of Murray thrown together to dramatic music and flashing words on the screen like "POWER." "GLORY." "PAIN." "VICTORY."

Stupid BBC.

Anywho, hopefully baby Roddick will pull through. He's winning right now, although Murray may force it into a 5th set. Hopefully not.

Then again, that's good tennis for ya I suppose...

I just don't want to break the TV from getting frustrated for Roddick. XDD

Amazing how being a cripple and having very little else to do during Wimbledon can turn you into a Tennis freak. Then again, like my mother, I should probably avoid watching sports. Because I do get angry and scream and swear. Like my aunt aswell actually.

I just have a wholly angry family. Heh.

I shall report back to you on my thoughts after the match. For now I have to go back to biting my finger joints and muttering under my breath for Roddick. Although he won that game so now it's 3 all (with Roddick ahead a set of course ;D)

Yeah, apparently biting my finger joints is a nervous habit of mine now. O_O

(PS Murray got fined 500 euro earlier for swearing. I feel bad for him. He didn't actually swear. Although it's shut him up a little. Heh.)

MY MSN WON'T WORK D:

What is this traitorous mutiny MSN!? What have I done to wrong you? WHY IS MY CONTACT LIST UNAVAILABLE RIGHT NOW TO TRY AGAIN LATER!?

I tried to sign into my account yesterday too and it said the same thing. D:

And my old VH (Virtual Hogwarts) account signs in fine, but I don't have anybody's addy on that other than VHers! And I'm so inactive on VH that I have very little to talk about with them. D:

WHY WON'T MY MSN JUST WORRRRKKKK!? DDDD:

In other news: I'd still love to see a match between Andy Murray and Andy Roddick. And of course A-Rod would kick Murray's ass with his super serve. But yeah.

A-Rod and Fed Fed would be cool too, although Fed Fed would probably win. Then again, y'never know with Dandy Andy. :D

In further other news: Still crippled, although I don't NEED the two crutches anymore and I can manage with one. I kept staring at my stitches today when I convinced my mother to leave off the dressing for a little while to let some air at the stitches (like my GP advised.. for next week.. but still.. :D) They just look so coooool. Part of the cut is more healed than the other and the skin has gone back together whilst another part looks like if there was no stitch holding it together it would rip apart and eat my doggies.

It freaks my older brother out. It fascinates me.

Hopefully this shows something of someway towards my aspirations in medicine. :D

My Cat Has A Thing For Andy Roddick

So I was innocently browsing through pictures of Andy Roddick. My cat, Fern, was sitting in my lap, all comfy cosy and sleepy and that was grand. Anywhoo, whilst taking a look at this picture...



My cat suddenly took a rather amusing interest in the computer screen. She was staring at it really transfixedly and then I started laughing and apparently disturbed her so then she got up and went up against the screen and started rubbing up against it and purring.

My cat has good taste. XDD

NOTE TO KARAKINS AND LAV IN GENERAL

Before bed I also thought I'd make mention to all my wonderful LIKE A VIRGIN! friends that, yes, I know I fail and I haven't been on and I owe people like 2 week old posts and that'll probably extend to like 3 weeks considering I'm off to hospital for an unknown amount of time (surgery is either Tuesday or Thursday.. fingers crossed it's Tuesday but I have to be in hospital Monday for pre-op or whatever and yeahh)

So basically, I'm sorry I fail and I'll try my bestest to replyyy.

Love you guyzesss.

So I was bored and it was late (and still is, I'm going to bed in a minute) and I was browsing the channels on Sky and, after watching 3/4 of the film Untraceable (I missed the start, but it's good enough), I found a film called "Mean Creek" on Film4. To be honest, I first switched over in excitement, confusing myself as I had been expecting to find "Without A Paddle". You know, the expression "up shit creek without a paddle", which obviously confused me when I momentarily forgot the actual title of the film I was thinking of. Aannnyyywayyyy, again, to be honest, the only thing that held my attention when I switched over and discovered it wasn't actually "Without A Paddle" was that I spotted the guy who plays Scotty in the film Eurotrip (Scott Mechlowicz). He's pretty hot, and I like him in Eurotrip, so I decided to watch it for a while.

I love it.

It's about this kid Sam (Rory Culkin.. Ikr.. =/.. but he's not too bad..) and basically, Sam gets beaten up at school by George (Josh Peck). I missed the start, but you pretty quickly gather that's what happened. Anyway, so George (who's on the heavy side, 'cause this is a 2004 film, back before Josh Peck lost a sight of weight and looks all skeletal.. although fair play to him on that front too.. XD anyway) George is on the heavy side and really, deep down as we come to realise throughout the film, he's just insecure and stuff and really he just wants to be loved. Although he really is SUCH an asshole, particularly around the older kids. Which I'm getting to. So Sam tells his big brother Rocky that he's getting bullied and from there, Rocky schemes with his friends Marty (Scott Mechlowicz) and Clyde to get back at the bully. They lure him on a birthday bash river boat trip, planning to then trap him, strip him, force him into the river and then to run home naked. Along for the ride is, of course, Sam, aswell as Sam's potential girlfriend Millie.

Of course, they all change their minds after George turns out to be "not such a bad guy after all" (although in my opinion he's still a pompous wreck-the-head who consistantly makes fun of everyone else and sucks up to Marty, who comes off as the eldest in the group, I think). Marty's the only one who wants to go ahead with the plan, but because everyone else has pulled out, he agrees the prank will not go ahead. Well, sort of. He slyly suggests they plan a game of Truth Or Dare, which was how the gang had originally planned to force George to strip. Despite protests from the others, George is all up for this and after a few harsh comments, the main protestor of their scheme, Millie (who, in fairness, got dragged into this unknowingly) encourages the game. Needless to say, things get a little touchy, particularly when George makes a reference to Marty's father (I didn't know at the time, but he was dead) and Marty got touchy. But it blew over for a little while, until George got bitchy again for no apparent reason, Marty got bitchy back and revealed the gang's true intentions for bringing George out into the wilderness.

Which is what brings me around to the important part. George throws a schitz and gets pissed at everyone. First he turns on Clyde (who's an adorably timid young lad who tries to calm him down) and attacks him because Clyde's fathers are gay (idk if he's adopted or what but yeah). Then he turns on Marty. This was the point in the film where I was all OOHHHH MARTY'S GONNA KICK YO' ASSSSSSSS. 'Cause as George points out, Marty's white trash. XDD ANYWAY George makes all these comments about Marty's dad, who clearly committed suicide, Marty gets pissed, tries to attack George, Clyde and Sam and Millie (the smallest in the bunch) hold Marty back (whilst in the small little boat, which I thought was quite a feat) and then Rocky accidentally gets a bit angry trying to shut George up (he who keeps screaming "SPLATTERED HIS BRAINS ALL OVER THE WALL" at Marty) and basically George falls in.

Guess what happens? George drowns. From there, it gets very depressing. XD They all freak a little, not sure what to do, and Marty gets particularly violently persuasive when he's the only one who wants to bury the body and forget all about it. But they do so, 'cause Marty's oldest and coolest and whatnot. XD After that there's not much, except the others deciding to tell the police and Marty running off 'cause he's scared and doesn't wanna get raped 'cause he thinks they'll go to prison. All in all, I really like the film, although I know I'm clearly biased due to my love for Marty/Scott, 'cause he's hot and I tend to like the angry, manipulative people in films/books.. XDD

And now that I've gotten alllll that explained (/ranted about) I bring you the short, very basic fic I've written. From Marty's POV of course. XD

There are a couple of spoilery references in the following fic. So, y'know, unless you've seen the film or don't care about spoilers or have read my above rant and get the whole idea of the film, you maybe should reconsider reading the fic. Considering I make reference to one of the characters' backround (okay, so it's based on one of the characters' backgrounds) and I also make reference to the whole climax of the film, y'know, you might not wanna read it. XD Now that I have that out of the wayyy.

Title: Idk. Untitled. XD
Fandom: Mean Creek
Characters: Martini Blank (Marty)'s POV. References made to George Tooney, Rocky and Mr. Blank (Marty's daddy). Oh and Mrs. Tooney (George's mommy).
Warnings/Spoilers: A small bit of swearing; references to suicide, alcoholism and death.
A/N: Look it's 5am. I've only seen the film in the past 2 hours. I wrote this in like.. 6 minutes.. So yeah, those are my excuses. Sleep depravity and lateness. XD Oh and that one sentence about Marty and Rocky, yeah, I didn't mean for that to sound slashy. XDD It's not really how it sounds. That's how they sit in that scene. XD


This wasn't supposed to happen. This wasn't the way things were meant to go.

Then again, nothing that happened in Marty's life seemed to be the way things were meant to go. Nothing. Maybe it would have been best if Marty had never happened at all, if he'd never even been a bad thought. Maybe that way his father would never have had to put up with all his troublesome mischief, would never have had to drink away his worries, would never have become depressed and maybe, just maybe, he never would have...

Splattered his brains all over the wall.

To this day, Marty felt a mixture of pain, guilt, blame and relief over his father's death. Everyone thought of Marty as white-trash, worthless, as a good-for-nothing ne'er-do-well who would never amount to anything and was a general waste of space. Of course, everyone also thought that Marty's short comings were all a tragic result of his tragic emotional scars due to his tragic past where his father killed himself. Tragically.

In Marty's mind, however, he saw that his short comings were actually there long before anything to do with his father, and that truthfully, his father's death was a result of those short comings. That he was to blame. Marty had always been a little shit before his father went and offed himself. He was always in trouble, never did well in school, got along with none of the other kids (except for Rocky, who seemed to be a Godsend) and was generally a bastard to everyone, including, if not particularly, towards his father. Marty always held a grudge at the man for naming his son "Martini". Perhaps that had been a sign of things to come right from the start.

Kile had always made his best attempts to help. Tried to show Marty the ropes, show him how to do things properly, even if Kile never really had any clue himself. He was always there for Marty. Not that it did much good. With Marty, anything that could go wrong, went wrong. Screw Murphy damnit, in his family there was only Marty's Law.

As they sat in a disjointed circle around Georgie Porgie's still lifeless lump, Marty reflected on the events that took place previous. The fat bastard's harsh words rang through his head, echoing off the walls like one of those big huge bell things.

"His Neanderthal, drunk father put a gun in his mouth and splattered his brains all over the wall!"

All over the wall. And it had been Mrs. Tooney who'd told her large sack of a son that apparently.

"...She said, "his daddy splattered his brains all over the wall"..."

Fuck her. Fuck him. Fuck them all. Marty's fist clenched. He felt like pounding something. Anything. George's limp blob. Rocky, who sat beside him, their hips brushing slightly as the best comfort either friend could provide to one another, although it was clear Marty was the one who needed comforting.

Marty would even turn on Rocky if he knew it would make him feel better, but he knew it wouldn't. Not even beating himself, or his good-for-nothing father could make Marty feel better right now. There was a dead kid sitting mere feet away from him. A dead kid who had been mean and cruel and harsh in life and who had said a mean and cruel and harsh thing to people you didn't say mean, cruel, harsh things to. Well, person, rather than people. That being said, Rocky had been the one to give him the push. Turns out Rocky had his back after all.

Amidst all his gloom and depression and down-trodding reflection, one single thought did cross his mind and it was one of those thoughts that was kind of inappropriate and made you want to laugh. Scratch that, it was inappropriate for sure; one of those remarks you made at the most inappropriate of times in the most inappropriate of situations to the most inappropriate people you could ever make an inappropriate remark to.

But Marty was Marty, so he said it anyway, regardless of inappropriateness.

"Y'know, the fat fucker deserved what he got."

Only Rocky heard him. His low, serious tone was masked by a small chuckle, which, to the others, probably came across as a cough. Which was good. Because only Rocky would know that Marty wasn't talking about George.

PATHOLOGY; GRIFFIN


I'm watching Pathology (AT LAST =D) and I love that one scene, where they're all in the morgue and Jake goes on his big "we're in here, not out there, need more of these, less of them" tangent, and at the end an intern happens to cut into the bowels of a corpse he's examining. The kid starts to throw up and runs off-screen whilst Griffin, who's standing in the background eating a sandwich, smartly points out "Yeah, you don't wanna be cutting into the poop pipe, kid."

XD Eating a sandwich. In a morgue. Really. I just love it.

In other news....
