Auld Lang oh GTFO

Gin, sass and Photo Booth

The year 2014 did to me what spring does with the cherry trees — but in a prison way. While my natural tendency is to look back on the year that was and spin the tale into some feel-good cotton candy, I'm not there yet. Check back when my memoir is a best-seller and Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez is playing me in the film adaptation. On my deathbed, I will be ranting unintelligibly about 2014 as I thrash into that good night. (I imagine I will have pink hair and everyone will call me Crazy Abuela Liz).

I set no goals, make no resolutions, expect nothing. Want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans. I'd say I've learned my lesson, but if the patterns of my life hold, that would just be signing up for extra credit! I'm not into tempting fate.

For now, I wish you all a happy, fantastic new year. And 2015? Please be gentle with me.


Midseason sailing report, or, these TV couples I ship need to get married

I collect fandoms like I collect coffee mugs. No one can keep track of what shows I'm watching when. And although the ensuing post is longer than Taylor Swift's list of ex-lovers that'll tell you she's insane, I promise you that I whittled this down to very few of the shows I've actually been watching this season.

Shipping. Everyone does it, even if you don't know you're doing it or don't want to admit it. You always have that one couple on a show that you're rooting for, even if they aren't together in the canon. Ships make the shows you love, and even the ones you hate-watch, that much more interesting.

Here's who I want to get or stay together on my main shows this season. Spoilers after the jump for everyone who hasn't seen the midseason finales of Once Upon A Time, Sleepy Hollow, Jane the Virgin and Reign.
