I hung up my fandom hat many moons ago. I'm now a working mum with no more time for TV addictions. But I just watched the Veronica Mars movie, and this little marshmallow is in love all over again.

Just to let you all know I'm not currently pushing up daisies or any other kind of vegetation... I am however, ready to almost completely let go of the LJ-world. I'm just so wonderfully busy with life and love and work and travel, and I'm ready to move on from fandom. Also, I have to say turning 30 makes one reassess their level of comfort with being called a "fangirl"!!
I'm dramatically culling the friends-list, down to people I know too well to say goodbye to forever, and those that will keep me abreast of any major news in my old fandoms - QAF, VM, Buffy. To those whom I've had to delete - thank you thank you thank you for 2 years of absolute joy - I promise not to forget any of you. To those that are still around, I'm lucky enough to call a few of you close friends, and I'll try and hold on to that for as long as I can. No matter how distant or close our connection, love to you all. Like it or not you've been a part of this little Aussie fangirl's life, and she will always remember you fondly and with a great big grin...
Adieu adieu adieu.>:D

Happy Valentine's Day F-list!! I'm the worst girlfriend ever, I know. I don't write, I don't call... Real life's kinda reared it's time-consuming head and I'm not online nearly as much as I'd like.
But get this... today I'm exercising after work with my gay boyfriend, then going out to dinner with my hetero boyfriend. AM I NOT A CHILD OF THE NOUGHTIES??
Also, Brokeback Mountain is FINALLY opening here in Bumfuck, Whoresville, and I'm already planning 3 viewings...
The debate continues to rage here over the RU486 "abortion pill". The way of things at the moment is that it's not authorised for use, and that the Health Minister has a direct veto if the Therapeutic Goods Administration *does* authorise it for use (No, this is NOT normal. You'd be right to ask what the fuck right a POLITICIAN has to decide whether a medication is fit for public consumption). Our Health Minister is a nasty little weasel of a man and a strong Catholic. You do the math. So we're trying to pass a bill to remove his veto, and it was passed fairly easily through the Senate (as was expected - more women on the Senate), but now has to pass through the House Of Reps, which is a bit of a nail-biter. As you can imagine, this one little issue has re-sparked the whole abortion debate and all the Pro-Life nutters are emerging again from their church pews and tupperware parties to vehemently defend the Health Minister's veto. Of course they're all missing the fucking point, which is that surgical abortion has been legal in Australia for years. Oh but like NO, I'm sorry, apparently having this pill available will make abortion "easier". Yeah, right. OK. A lot easier. I know I'll forego the condom tonight if I know that all I need to do is take a course of pills that will probably make me nauseated, go through some pretty fucking painful uterine contractions, bleed like a mother-fucker for a few days, and watch products of conception being expelled from my vagina - NO FUCKING PROBLEM. These people are fucking insane.
Meanwhile, in Bali... yet again two Australian boys are waiting to hear if they'll be sentenced to execution by firing squad for drug trafficking. Execution by firing squad.
Is VM on hiatus again? Bloody buggering hell.
BSG has been taking a vacation in Neverland. Weird. Except for the "So why don't we?" scene of course.
I am seeing Kanye West and U2 live in concert next month!
Apparently Australia is one of the world's biggest downloaders of TV shows. THAT'S ME, I'M CLEARLY AUSTRALIAN.
If anyone has Colin Farrell's recent masterpiece theatre and would be willing to share...

It's not quite the 4th there, but it's been the 4th here for 14 hours already, so...
Happy Birthday to my sweetpea, my betrothed, my lobster... bea_nonymous

I officially give up on Idol voters. Second year in a row they've got it totally wrong.
I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough water. I fart in your general direction. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person! I blow my nose at you.
Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies (KATE-FANS) to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs (KATE-FANS) and toads (KATE-FANS) and tree-sloths (KATE-FANS) and fruit-bats (KATE-FANS) and orangutans (KATE-FANS) and breakfast cereals (FANS OF KATE)... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe (KATE AND ALL HER FANS), who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
Only Monty Python can demonstrate the depths of my annoyance.

Australia is finally getting Veronica Mars - they've been promoting the shit out of it on Channel Ten. Big ads all through the Australian Idol final performance show - which is of the good, clearly. BUT. Fellow Aussies, please share my anger over the RIDICULOUS VOICE-OVER THEY'VE GOT GOING ON. They have an Aussie doing Veronica's voice-over from the pilot, bits like "he used to be my boyfriend" and "that was the last time I saw Lilly alive" and it is WITHOUT A DOUBT the WORST fake American accent I have EVER HEARD. Whoever it is makes Veronica sound like a breathy, brainless twat. Why???? Why would they do that??? Why not just edit Kristen Bell's real voiceover? Or, you know, just ask me...;;) It sounds totally retarded and I am deeply annoyed.This
could keep me amused for days. Oh f-list, life would be so boring without your constant linkage.
I'm sure it's not news to any of you, but they are going to hang an Aussie boy in Singapore next Friday.
Every time I think about it I feel sick. Why isn't there some international jurisdiction that prevents this from happening? This just can't be right, it can't be. The death penalty is the one thing both left-wingers and the frelling POPE agree on, and yet. Next Friday at dawn, this boy is going to be hung by the neck until he is dead, for strapping some heroin to his chest.
