Oh. Yes. LiveJournal. (For the curious: situation unchanged over here.) Meme stolen from [ profile] selenak.

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2012?

Legend of Galactic Heroes (started and finished), Revenge (occasionally catching up), Elementary (gave up after 6 episodes), Suits (didn't continue after the first season), Leverage (recent discovery and so much fun). And hey, SAGIRI qualifies :D

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2012?

Downton Abbey, Suits, Elementary.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2012? Why?

I keep considering Rizzoli and Isles.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2013?

Nothing planned. I tend to watch as something catches my attention.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2012?

Downton Abbey. I watched the first two episodes of the new season and realised I had no desire to watch more.

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2012?

Dammit, hard one. LOGH was epic and gave me all sorts of things to think about (and the way they juggle a cast of hundreds is glorious), Revenge gets all sorts of +1 for thoroughly genderflipping Count of Monte Christo in very amusing ways and a cast of ruthless complicated human women, but over the last month that's Leverage - I've been in the mood for something silly and not stupid and full of eyecandy, and it's very well-crafted entertainment that's amazingly character-oriented for a villain-of-the-week show. Definitely mental comfort food.

It's been a decade since I last wrote them, so my tanka skills are very rusty ~.~ Seasonal mix as well, but blame the weather, not me...

Forecast said today
Would be as warm as summer
And the sun emerged
Long enough to stifle breath
Now rain chills your skin again

First, thanks to everyone for the congratulations yesterday ^_^ I still can't believe it's over, or that I actually managed to be systematic and diligent enough to complete the programme. Apparently this year, 22 thousand people took Level III (some of them for the fourth or fifth time) and only 51% passed.

Second, to kickstart my creativity, meme from [ profile] selenak:

You, the friendslist, give me two characters you know I'm familiar with from different fandoms, and I'll give you a dialogue between them, without justifying how the crossover would work, how their worlds clashed, or how they could even meet each other -- just a silly crossover conversation for fun with no backstory.

Ganked from [ profile] shirabyoshi:

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than fifty icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have each one, why it's interesting to you, what significance it has.

Seeing as I have 126... )

Dead to the world, though I now have kitchen cabinets (!), far too many bills to pay and still a mountain of stuff to buy. One more Ikea trip, a few more broken nails putting things together, a thorough scrubbing, and the flat will be as ready as it will be. Photos this evening.

In the meantime, meme swiped from [ profile] 3peanuts:

Contents of my bag )

And just for the record: tonight will be the first time in four weeks that I have a free evening. Not a free day; a free evening without work or shopping for the flat.

I may need to slow down a little.

Meme swiped from [ profile] reynardine and [ profile] rkold . I'm not doing the travel destinations part because it's very US-heavy and I've only ever been to Minneapolis/St Paul.

I managed to catch the first cold of the year. This coincided with the arrival of a certain package, so today was spent watching Shakespearean rock opera crack ♥

From [ profile] mizukusa:

1. Comment and name the actress you want me to comment on. I'll comment back a few lines about what I have to say about her, as in what I like about her, my favourite role of her and so on.
2. If you comment, post this in your own journal, so that others have a chance to ask you as well.

(The above can also mean a character in a fandom we share. The tribulations of a multifandom existence...)

Book meme

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

A payer swaption gives the holder the right to enter a swap as the fixed-rate payer at the strike rate. The strike price on the swap is the fixed rate, so there is no exercise price per se. The payment for the swaption is the premium paid for purchase, just like any other options.

In the middle of the swap, credit quality of one of both parties can have deteriorated over time and there are still significant payments remaining.

In a frightening manner, Level II derivatives theory is easier than Level I. (And I'm well along with studying for my June exam. There may be more of such remarks.)

This was surprisingly difficult - I really don't watch much TV. I don't have time in my life for more than one, maybe two series at a time, and I do 90% of my watching online.

Mostly about TV series )

Comment and I'll give you a letter, then you have to list ten people/places/things you love that begin with that letter, afterwards post it on your journal and fill out letters of your own.

[ profile] demoneyeskyo87 gave me "I" :)

Reply to this post by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

01; Comment to this entry saying 'ICONS!' and I will pick 6 of your icons.
02; Make an entry in your own journal and talk about the icons I picked!

Stolen from [ profile] givemeyourwings, so here are her picks :)

Includes one of my new slew of icons )

In other news, today's edition of the second-largest national broadsheet published an article of mine, with this photo. Now to see if it has any effect on business ;)

I wrapped up last week at a party, as if I hadn't been tired enough. Hence, meme swiped from [ profile] galynthia, because brain isn't up to more.

Look up your birthday in Wikipedia. Pick 4 events, 3 births, 2 deaths, and 1 holiday.
