Just in case anyone didn't see this and it's something you're interested in: Reading Rainbow kickstarter! Like a lot of people, I grew up with this show. They do such important work. The stats that 25% of kids grow up illiterate are horrifying and need to change, so donate and/or signal boost if you can. (As a side note, Reading Rainbow is apparently a few months older than  I am. That's... weird.)

God, the ED song for season 2 of Natsume is absolutely gorgeous. *_* Well, the ED in general, but the music in particular.  I actually really like the OP song, too. And snow bunny! <3 It's also highly entertaining that while Natsume is clearly still annoyed by Natori, he's also starting to get a little blushy around him, too. Cute, but guh, Natsume, find someone your own age to be blushy around, god.

I have, sadly, moved on to season 3, but on the upside- I've learned that the name of the couple who have taken Natsume in is Fujiwara, which basically had me cracking up. Go figure. (I don't think they said that before- I would've remembered something like that.)

I am now officially signed up for two exchanges and am attempting to work on stuff for the next round of BG (not to be posted anytime in the immediate future, nobody panic XD And even then, it's a totally different thing- you'll see what I mean). Oh, and even though the Shipswap thing was supposed to be a one-shot, I have a sequel/chapter 2 bunny that's insistently nomming on my brain. Plus one of the prompt/requests that I didn't end up with in the one exchange is also doing bad things in my head. Oops. On the upside- while I don't actually have any ideas for the exchanges yet, I'm working hard on those, and I adore at least one of the prompts that were given to me and have decided at least on a basic level what I'm doing for each. Sort of. NPT is going to be harder, not going to lie. Plot is required. :/ And, also on the upside, I can just sit on that prompt I didn't get and see if the writer assigned to that person actually writes that one. If they do, I'm home free and can just read~ If not, uh, I guess that's another one for the evil bunny list. XD

Just started watching season 2 of Orange Is the New Black- Piper still annoys the living fuck out of me. Yaaaaaaaay. -_-

I didn't end up calling about the audit because I was advised not to, but I responded to the notice online along with a bunch of pdf's (after an edit from Ai to get more to the point and get rid of the irritation that snuck in at the end, heh), so that's done. As I said to Ai, since I responded in a timely manner, hopefully they'll return the favor and not keep me in suspense for ages. Even more hopefully, they'll have good news. *fingers crossed*

★ In more RL stuff, I just went and looked up the academic calendar for the next school year (I'd been meaning to, but what finally kicked me in the ass was that I needed to know when I was going back so I could tell the loan people, so they don't start sending me bills in November. So now that's taken care of, I'm just waiting for a confirmation email from them on that.). It's sort of weird, because I actually get days or at least SOME time off for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur now, which has never actually happened to me (I've never been at a school where they acknowledged religious holidays that weren't Christian). So in the fall at least, there's a decent spread of days off. AND I GET A REAL SPRING BREAK! I'm so stupidly excited about this, I can't even explain it. Both of my years in college, we've gotten two or three days for spring break, so having a full week is a BIG DEAL. It's kind of early, though- mid March, which kind of sucks because here in New York, the weather is still super crappy at that point in the year. But whatever. IT'S A WEEK. <3

★ Aaaaaaand last but not least, because Cecilia Tan is evil, I'm going to drop this link here for Daron's Guitar Chronicles. It's an LGBTQ themed web serial and is fabulous and I encourage you all to read it. Strongly encourage. *eyeballs* Nah, I'm kidding, obviously to each their own and whatnot and you don't have to if you don't want to. :P

Sorry, guys. RL ate me. XD (And will continue to eat me for another few weeks, not gonna lie.) As always, you're better off checking tumblr (same name) these days if you want updates more than once every month or two. <_< I actually hadn't realize it had been that long. Anyway, so let's take care of the updatey stuff really quickly, shall we?

A little rambly, but not too bad, considering )

More media/fandom, because apparently the thing to do is to start a bunch of random stuff instead of doing actual work!

★ Did I ever mention on here that I signed up for shipswap? Well, in any event, I signed up for shipswap because I'm clearly INSANE and Liz is a dirty enabler. Naturally, I got matched up on the fandom I felt least comfortable with. Ungh. I have something of an idea, but haven't written much yet, it's still forming in my head. And I think I'll have to rewrite most of what I've written anyway, because the pairing I intended to write is... not the one my brain seems interested in doing all of a sudden. It uses some of the same idea, but since one of the main characters is different, obviously the fic will be different. Fuck.

★ Aaaand then there's blind_go, which I still have no idea what I'm doing for that. I've basically given it up as a lost cause at this point. The thing is, there ARE bunnies in the queue that would probably make the word limit, it's just having the time/energy to deal with them. >_<

★ Finished the anime of Oofuri. Thoughts, though not many because the second season was short:
-Still not shipping Abe/Mihashi. It's better where I maybe wouldn't mind reading fic of it (maybe), but meeeeeeh. Actually, that one word pretty much covers that ship for me. Meh. That may change as I get further along in the story with the manga, but as of right now, I don't see it happening- it's probably a safe bet that if I don't ship it even a little after two seasons, I'm probably not going to ship it. (LMAO, now watch me be wrong, since I've said that. XD)
-Incredibly disappointed that the fanboy only showed up briefly in the first episode of the second season. I WANTED MORE SHIPFUEL, DAMMIT. XD No, really, it's okay, I'll live. XD Honestly, what I've walked away shipping the most is Tajima/Mihashi. I dunno, BFF's are one of the things I tend to ship the hardest, and they hit that button SO MUCH. Even if it's totally casual and they're just fooling around, so it's not an endgame ship for me. I don't ship it to the point of wanting to write fic for it, but I'm not going to rule that out entirely, either. We'll see- but I'm certainly not going to promise anything.
-My first reaction upon finishing the last episode- "that's it?" I was so annoyed that they ended it there. XD Luckily for me there's the manga, which I'm working on downloading.
Aaaaand that's it for gay baseball for the time being. ^_^;;; I'm going to be honest and say it's probably going to be a while before I start the manga- partially because I'm otherwise busy, partially because I'm still downloading it, and partially because I'm on a video kick and not a manga kick- but I'll get to it. Mostly because I want that part where Tajima and Mihashi share porn and stuff, not gonna lie. XD

★ I've now watched the first two episodes of Game of Thrones, because it keeps coming up in conversation lately and so it's annoying to have to keep saying that I haven't seen it. I... think I'm too squeamish for this show. Fucking hell. I keep having to pause it or mute it and look away because I just. Urgh. I love Tyrion, like King whatshisface (see, me being bad with names isn't just an anime thing! XD)- though admittedly that might be because I like the actor- am so far neutral about Snow and um... climber kid (Bran?), and pretty much hate everyone else. I think I might grow to like the blonde chick with the creepy brother, though. We'll see. I'm trying to withhold overall judgment until finishing the first season, and then we'll see where I sit on everything and I'll decide if I want to continue watching it.

★ Started Nobuta wo Produce over again. I only ever got about an episode and a half through it before, so being that I've seen eight, I'm doing way better this time. It's... completely ridiculous, but generally not in a bad way except that literally all of the adults except one are fucking useless morons (and even then, she's nuts). Also the whole thing where Akira falls in love with Nobuta feels incredibly forced- he is SO crushing on Shuji it's not even funny. It's so obvious with how he's constantly touching him, even right from the beginning (and he doesn't do that with anyone else). I'm not really sure why everyone wants Shuji when he's scary skinny like that. O_o Seriously, he's skeletal, it's disturbing. Shuji is also a complete dick. XD Akira is irritating, but gets less so as the episodes go on. I only have two more, so we'll see. I'm honestly of two minds on this- sometimes I really enjoy it, and then sometimes I'm like, "fuck this show." XD

★ Also started Teen Wolf. It's um. *cough* It's as good as expected? <_< The only positive is that Scott is ridiculously adorkable (dumb as a rock, but adorkable)... otherwise, it has me facepalming from the stupidity approximately every five seconds. I'm still giving it a chance, but so far, I'm not holding my breath that I'll watch it for more than a season.

Okay, that's more than plenty for the time being, and I should probably get some reading done for English Lit anyway. (It's an actual STORY. Akira shock! XD)

So much for updating more. Oops. XD I've been doing the usual thing where I have a text file and I just keep adding to it until it's roughly the size of Godzilla and then never post it, so yanno. I -will- finish the December meme, I have two more to go, I just need to finish the recs post first because Liz is evil. In the meantime, I'll post a part of what I've got saved up. This is the fandom/media part, and probably later or tomorrow or something I'll post the RL part. I think that's the best way to go about this. ^_^ I was going to go someplace with wifi today, but I really don't feel like it, so I'm posting this from my phone- I apologize ahead of time if something goes wrong. Seriously, these days it's better to just follow my tumblr (same username), I post to that way more often.

★ I'm positive that you've all seen this by now, but in case you haven't or you've forgotten about it or something, there's a new round of [community profile] blind_go sign-ups going here. They're open for one more week. Don't forget to sign up if you haven't already! I'm really hoping to have the theme sets posted before then. Unfortunately, between everything else that's been going on IRL, the lack of home internet, and photobucket eating pictures I upload, it's been a trial and a half. So we'll see. XD

★ I've been watching stuff!
-Managed to get caught up in Kuroko no Basket (anime). Primary reaction is that it needs more Nigou. :P But then, that's always true. They should just make the whole show about him. XD That being said, I find the show much more tolerable when I'm caught up. I can take once a week doses with a relative minimum of eyerolling, but much more than that gets me really irritated. It's starting to really annoy me again, with the incredibly overpowered/overdramatized players. I keep going, "Really? REALLY? I'm supposed to buy this?" XD
-I watched through season 3 of Sherlock. The verdict? They should've just left it at the end of season 2. Just... unghhhh. So much was stupid or didn't make any fucking logical sense whatsoever. I can't even articulate how much was wrong with it. adjsakljdklsa.
-Let's see... I was told Sakura Trick was cute, so I'd grabbed the first three episodes that were out. That was my first mistake. XD I watched the first couple and dropped it, which I -never- do. It does have it's cute moments, but it's so fanservicey that it's absolutely beyond ridiculous. I lost count of the number of times I rolled my eyes at it in two episodes. I wouldn't mind the fanservice quite so much if it didn't set off my pedo alarm. Seriously, the one girl looks about eight years old, and that squicks me the hell out. Nothing against people that are into that, it's just not my thing.
-I'm not terribly into sci-fi, so Firefly was something I never really bothered watching. Well... I finally gave in because I was sick of people being all horrified about me not seeing it, and it was on Netflix, so why not. It was reasonably amusing. Zoe is by far my favorite. :)
-I'm now six episodes into Oofuri. Reactions so far, because I know if nothing else, Krim will ask: I -hate- the opening song, but that's not a dealbreaker or anything, so whatever, it's just annoying as all hell. JFC, it's like they're begging for slash shipping here, even without counting the number of opportunies for pitcher and catcher jokes. XDDD Mihashi is ridiculously high maintenance. Poor Abe. XD My feelings on Mihashi are mixed- I think he's adorable half the time and completely fucking obnoxious the other half. I desperately want to punch him in the face during the obnoxious half because I'm a terrible person. XD Also, does this first game ever fucking end? I find myself longing for the three episode PoT matches, seriously. Ungh. That being said, despite my bitching, I'm enjoying it overall. I mean, come on, it's gay baseball. What's not to like in that equation? :P
-I've also apparently decided to pick up Merlin again, but so far this has only consisted of figuring out where the hell I stopped. Considering that I knew I never got to season 2, this process was harder than you might think. XD For example, I actually got most of the way through an episode before I realized I'd already seen it before. XD So yeah, turns out I finished season 1. That's probably something I'll do today- start season 2! :D
-On the upside, I'd tried getting netflix to work on my phone and it wouldn't, without a wi-fi connection. Now suddenly it does. Which means that watching stuff isn't going to be nearly as much of a pain as it has been. Quality isn't bad, either. I ordered a cheap stand on Amazon so I can watch it without having to sit there and hold the phone, because that gets really painful after a while. It actually just arrived today and seems like it'll work. Yay!

★ In other news, I dropped my 3DS and now it's on max volume all the time regardless of where the slider is. <_< Bleh. Need to get one of those dust plug things for it for when I don't have my headphones plugged in.

Aaaand I think that's plenty long enough for the time being. :P

It's been a while again since I've written, so I figured I'd check in and let those of you who don't follow me in other places know that yes, I'm still alive. See? Alive. :D So what's been happening? A lot of work, a lot of procrastination. I spent the morning sorting out the (admittedly, all over the place) fantasy section of my e-book folder instead of trying to write a story that's due Tuesday. You know, the normal. Oops. XD I also don't have internet at home right now, which complicates matters. This got really ridiculously long, mostly because of the school sections, so I'm just going to section the school stuff off for you guys by cuts. Which I don't normally bother with, but, well... you'll see. XD

☁ In case you're in Hikago fandom and didn't see my spamming, there's a new blind_go mini round out- GO SIGN UP. NOW.

☁ The new Phoenix Wright came out a couple of weeks ago. I feel so behind- I only just barely started case 4. I have Thoughts on it, which are partially good and partially ragey, but I'll hold off on getting too into those until I actually finish the game. So far... it's not that different from the others, concept wise. I can basically boil everything down to a short list of "things I've learned from the Ace Attorney games"
1. Prosecutors get away with EVERYTHING.
2. Don't become friends with a lawyer ever- you'll eventually end up dead or falsely accused of a crime, probably murder.
3. LGBTQ people are ridiculous/offensive/disgusting/only good for comedic relief/figments of your imagination/terrible people/any combination of the above, depending on the particular plot device service they're providing at the time.

☁ Midterms grades were fine- 4.0 for the semester so far. As usual, I just need to keep it there. ajdklsajd.

☁ Math is going VERY well. I'm shocked and not really sure how that's happening, but hey, I'll take it. :D

☁ I've actually been using the Netflix thing way more than I would've ever expected. Go figure. I might keep this after all- it's pretty nifty. ^_^ Also, on that note, I watched The Secret of Kells last week and really loved it (so gorgeous and fun and unique!), and I've recently gotten into watching Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, since I'd never actually seen it before. As much as certain things about the show are problematic... fuck it, it's fun, and a lot of the "victims" are just so so sweet.

☁ My birthday was Wednesday. I had classes, but it's the lightest day of the week and I didn't have any tests, so at least there's that. Stef picked me up from school, we went to Denny's for an early dinner (smothered friiiiiiiies), killed some time, and then went to go see the new Percy Jackson movie. Which, by the way, was a TON of fun even if there were some things (particularly with casting) that bothered me. It's a good time, and that's the whole point. Totally worth it.

☁ My body at least decided to wait until the next morning to be like, "oh yeah, you're sick now." Bleh. I probably should've known it was coming- I hadn't felt 100% for several days before that. When I get winded walking from home to the bus stop- I mean, I'm out of shape, but that's something I do ALL THE TIME- there's something wrong and that probably should've been a huge hint. XD So yeah, I woke up Thursday feeling like I'd gotten hit by a train. -_- I'd love to say that I feel better today, but the truth is, I don't. XD

☁ I had something started for BG, but with feeling like absolute crap, I chose to sleep instead of finish it before the deadline. Kinda sucks, but priorities. I haven't actually read any fic yet, but I will. At some point. Or something. <_<

☁ So the plan has been to stay home for the most part, relax, catch up on some zzz's and animes and gay fashion shows... oh yeah, and I guess there's probably some homework I should do. It's especially disappointing that I feel like crap because there was a festival going on downtown yesterday that I really wanted to go to, but I just wasn't up to it. I do have to go out today, though- I need food and laundry and I'm almost out of medicine. :/

☁ I'm seriously considering doing the Couch to 5k thing- after I get rid of this cold, of course, though I may just work on extra walking in the meantime, I dunno.

Aaaand now I've been up for ages and haven't managed to do anything really. Whoops. XD

☁ ID's are out and fics are due for BG in about 2 weeks. Um. It might be time to think about writing something? XD To be honest, I do have an idea I've been kicking around, but it's something that I'm thinking about writing it as a short story for Creative Writing, since I have my first story due at the same time as BG. So I'm not sure if that's really a good idea. But I might not do it anyway, because the story is supposed to be 3-5 pages DOUBLE SPACED and that's basically nothing, so I don't know that I have enough space to do what I want with it for the assignment anyway. Meh. :/

☁ I actually did another one of those reviews! I recently replayed 400 Days to fix a couple of the stupid things I did in the first playthrough, so I wrote about that a bit. It is here. The cool/exciting but scary thing is that I've done two of these reviews and I already have two followers on that blog. O_o Oh. And by the way, if you've even sort of been thinking about trying The Walking Dead, it's on sale on Steam till tomorrow. It's normally $25 for the first five episodes and then $5 for the 400 Days DLC- right now it's 6.24 for the main game and 2.49 for 400 Days. I'm not actually sure how the PC version compares to the xbox version, but either way it's a steal. Just sayin'.

☁ We haven't even had a meeting for Pride Alliance yet and the drama is already starting. Ungh. First of all, we don't have a room yet. So not only do we not have a place to GO, I can't make any flyers to get new people in until that happens. Ungh. Shouldn't that have been done, I dunno, before the start of the semester? Maybe that's just me. THEN there's the logo stuff. I don't know if I ever talked to you guys about that, but basically, last year this guy made a logo for us. Not only was the file really low quality (seriously, anytime we used it at any size that was readable, it was all pixellated and it drove me up the WALL)... the guy who made it was a complete tool and there was drama there. Oh yeah, and Marcus made jokes about it looking like we were a gay communist group, so you can imagine what the logo looked like. XD It's also important to note that the logo had a rainbow gradient to it, we'll come back to that in a bit.

So this year I want a new logo for the flyers. I was like, okay, I'll mock up a couple of things and I'll show you guys what I've got. Meanwhile, The Tool is going, "I still have the logo from last year." Uh, no. So I posted two potential logos- one is a heart with a rainbow gradient, and the other is a standard rainbow with clouds. Nothing groundbreaking here, I wanted it to be fairly simple and recognizeable. Apparently people last year didn't know what the hell the logo was supposed to be, so. Anyway. I saw The Tool at lunch the other day and he was saying that the logos I made weren't inclusive. He felt excluded by the use of the rainbow. I'm like... what? YOU DID THE SAME FUCKING THING. So okay, it's fine if YOU use a rainbow, but if I do it, it's exclusionary? WHAT? I think part of it is that he has a gigantic ego and I'm not feeding it, so he's pissed. God forbid we not use the logo that HE made. But he's also kind of insane (for example, he's one of those Otherkin jerkoffs), so it's totally possible that he actually BELIEVES that as a pansexual genderqueer person, if he uses a rainbow it includes everyone, but since I'm a gay semi-androgynous person, I'm only talking to gay people. Funny how that works. The rainbow is an easily recognizeable LGBTQ symbol, so that's the best to use- and we can't POSSIBLY use the colors/symbols for all of the individual groups because there's a million of them. It's a flyer, not a packet, JFC. If nothing else, though, I know that Marcus is on my side. Partially because we're friends and partially because he really does like my logos over The Tool's. :)

It's going to be a long fucking year, you guys.

☁ Also, I've started watching United States of Tara and LOVE it. I'm almost done with the first season and I just started it yesterday afternoon. (Of course, it helps that it's a half hour show and not hour long episodes, but still. XD)

Anyway. I have to see about fooding and then studying a bit for a Stats test I have tomorrow, and hopefully writing SOMETHING for a bit. Later~ ^_^

17. What is your most proud moment?
I think this is another stupid question. Once you get past... oh, I don't know, high school, you realize that life is a series of moments, a series of decisions, and you can't reasonably pick out one single one that you're most proud of or most ashamed of or would most like to change or whatever the question is, because everything is interconnected. So questions like this kind of piss me off. As far as answering the question... this whole last year was a part of my proudest moments- those are the decisions that led me to finally go back to school and do well.

Mostly random stuff )

☁ Turned in BG. Managed to pull off two fics, somehow, I don't even know how that happened. It was originally all part of the same idea, sort of, but... eh, it's complicated. Anyway. I was Vanessa and wrote two Hikaru and Waya fics- one pointless gen and the other smut. *shrug* I was terribly obvious and didn't bother to hide it. I was hoping that the pairing would throw people off at least a little, but uh, I guess not. XD Guessing didn't turn out too bad, though! 5 out of a possible 8, which is my best showing BY FAR- I have been known to get zero right, after all. Of course, if I'd actually looked a little more closely at some of the hints posted later on, I would've realized that a couple of my guesses were obviously wrong, but whatever. XD

☁ Somehow got talked into trying Naruto again, but of course I was only 7 eps into it to begin with and that was ages ago, so I just started it over. It's. I dunno. Kind of obnoxious. I can see why I didn't really feel a push to continue it before.

☁ The book cataloging is getting ridiculous. I've been taking a break, so there's still everything on my bookshelf at this point plus what's in the closet and whatever else I find that I'm not seeing right now- but the manga should be done, anyway, minus the first 13 of Hikago. I'm up to a total of 174 books and not even close to done (we won't even discuss how much of that is manga). I think I have a problem, you guys. XD Also recently I had decided to try and organize my ebook folder, because that's a huge clusterfuck, and all I can really say about that is... holy GOD, why did I do that to myself? I don't even know how it got like that.

☁ Money stuff for school is mostly taken care of, I'm waiting for the last grant form to go through, but it's nothing that's a huge deal right this split second. Like I can pay my bill and stuff without it, anyway. Re: school stuff, now all I have to do is get my certificate of residence (I'd like to do that tomorrow, tbh), pay my bill (by the 15th, but would like to do it next week to get it done and over with), get my books, and figure out exactly where my classes are and how tight I'm pushing my transport time on a couple. So that's coming along nicely.

☁ As far as RL circumstances... not a lot has changed, for good or for bad, at this point. I've been taking a bit of a hiatus on the cleaning because I've basically felt like shit the last week (yay for being female- not), plus being distracted with other things, see next cloud bullet, but I'm hoping to get back on track in the next couple of days.

☁ So remember how my laptop was overheating and I wasn't sure if it was the heat or something else? It was something else. -_- After some investigation, I discovered that the fan was no longer working. I'm not comfortable taking apart the laptop, since I can't get to the fan without pulling apart the ENTIRE thing (which is stupid but whatever), and it's not worth paying Best Buy $200 bucks to put a new fan in a four year old laptop, soooooo as much as I didn't want to spend the money and didn't want Windows 8... I didn't have a whole lot of choice in the matter. I bought a new one. XD I have named it Phoenix. :3 It was less than the previous one, under 400 before tax, so that wasn't bad. I've been super good about money over the summer, so I'm not going to beat myself up over spending the money or anything. Specs wise, I just wanted something that was at least as good as what I already had for relatively cheap, which was actually more difficult than you might think? Go figure. Sooooo I have another Toshiba- because fuck, I beat Haru all to hell and it still lasted four years, and above all else I did not want a Lenovo (very bad previous experience with IBM, and Kelly having to replace her Lenovo laptop TWICE since March does not help my opinion of them. I told her not to get a damn Lenovo. But nooooo, she didn't want to listen to me. Pfft.) Anyway. I still hate Windows 8, but I knew that already. Classic Shell makes it bearable, fyi if anybody on the flist ends up having to deal with this OS, though I still keep triggering stuff to pop up by accident. Grrr. The keyboard is pissing me off, at least until I get used to it. So there are minor frustrations with it, but that's true of any new device, especially with something like a laptop. Mostly I love it. It does what I need it to do (including connecting to the internet without a problem, which I was nervous about after the netbook), zips along speedily, and so far has handled everything I've thrown at it with grace. (It IS worth noting, though, that the "max temp" on Phoenix is significantly lower than it was on Haru- Haru's was 212, on Phoenix it's 194. Go figure.)

I think my favorite thing about it, though, is that it's a definite upgrade. I've said before that my laptop was hardly state of the art when I got it (and neither is this)- but you know that rating system Windows has? Old lappy was something like 3.3 or 3.5. This is 4.8. In both cases, the score is based off of the graphics card and everything else is AT LEAST a full point higher. When I turned on the Sims to double check that my saves would work, I was like, holy shit, they look like that? O_O It runs so much smoother now, without all the jerkiness and lag, and there's so much more detail. Like wow. Amazing.


Okay, I need to shut up and just post this already, so. Next time~!

☁ BG- It's um, going. Sort of. There is a not even half baked idea, and there are words, at least? We'll see. <_<

☁ It's been BRUTALLY hot and humid for the last week or so, but thankfully it's about 15 degrees cooler today and the humidity is supposed to FINALLY break overnight, last I heard. Thank god. Seriously, the other day it was fucking 97 with a heat index of 106. And yes, I know to some people that's not a big deal, but I live in freaking upstate NY. IT'S A BIG DEAL HERE. When it's hotter here than in Miami? Or AUSTIN? There's something wrong. I saw a thing on facebook the other day where somebody was like, "I think NY weather is broken" and that about covers it. It was seriously hellish. Kelly went up to the boyfriend's house last night (she even tilted her fan towards me before she left, heh), so I took the opportunity to strip down to my underwear and slept that way. I woke up feeling nice and cool, it was GLORIOUS.

☁ Speaking of heat, my laptop has... not been dealing with it well. Like it turned itself off several times the other day because it was overheating. I'm not entirely sure whether it's the heat/humidity or whether it's something more serious, like the laptop is dying, but in the meantime I'm attempting to find my cooling mat and taking "keep temperature down" measures- blew out the vents/fan/everything I can get to, energy consumption is set to power saver, the battery has been taken out, have the vents pointed at my fan, and I'm trying to run as few things as reasonably possible. Right this split second it's running around 150, which is pretty normal, but again, that's with all that stuff going on AND it's cooler today, soooooo I dunno. I really don't want to buy a new laptop. :/ (Mostly I don't want Windows 8) It wouldn't be AS big of a deal, considering I have the netbook, but home internet hasn't worked on the netbook ever since the cable company changed our router box. :/ I copied a bunch of stuff to the external HD anyway, in any event.

☁ It's mostly been too hot to clean really, but I did get the giant pile of crap in front of the closet cleared out, so I can actually- gasp- get in it now. Shocking, I know. In theory, that should make it easier, but now that I don't have a clear directional goal (like "get to the closet"), I'm feeling a little lost. But I guess... as long as I keep chipping away at it, it doesn't matter, really.

☁ Anime: Not a whole lot happening there. I knew I'd burn myself out eventually, because that's what I -do-, and it seems like that's what's happened. I'm still watching the new stuff as it comes out (Free is still fun, Brothers Conflict is still terrible, Silver Spoon I haven't really made up my mind about yet), and I managed to watch another ep of Tsuritama (it's still weird), but that's really about it. But this is normal. I'll cycle through some other media for a while before I come back to inhaling anime again. ^_^

☁ I did watch a couple of episodes of Doctor Who, so I'm now a few episodes into series 5 now. After seeing a few episodes with 11... I think I like him. :D Also of interest- as 11, Matt Smith is incredibly dorky looking. And not in a good way. He's apparently had a haircut, and he doesn't even look like the same person. Turns out he's totally adorable in a cute nerdy sort of way! O_O *was not expecting that*

☁ Oh, and I played The Walking Dead special 400 Days thing (I don't know if I mentioned it here, but I purchased the download for my xbox, but I won't do that again for season 2- I just don't have the hard drive space on that machine. I'll have to wait on season 2 until they put a disk out. Sadface.) My overall reaction was that I wish they'd picked one or two characters and stuck with them, instead of introducing five in such a short time span. You didn't really get to know anybody, really- though I like what I saw of Wyatt and Russell. Of course, those were the two that decided to opt out at the end. Argh. >_< So I actually have to go through it again... which is okay, because I did some stupid ass shit with Wyatt anyway. Seriously. There's a point where you have the option to try and drag this half-dead guy back to your car or leave him to get eaten by walkers, and for some ungodly reason I was like, yeah, let's drag him. Kelly was watching me play and was like, ".....what are you DOING?" "I DON'T KNOW, OKAY?" Which I guess... is one of the most interesting things about the game, really, since they give you no time to think about your decisions- you just have to go on your gut instinct. I tend to not always think things through to potential consequences, and my decisions definitely tend to lean more towards mercy and helping whoever I can when possible. I'd give examples, but spoilers. :P Which... yeah, can result in some really stupid choices as far as keeping myself/my group alive and safe. Whoops? XD

And on that note, I may or may not lie down for a bit because I have a migraine that doesn't want to go away (usually only napping cures those), and then it's some grownup stuff like laundry and figuring out what to make for dinner, and cleaning. Hopefully working on/finishing this thing for BG. Maybe. XD

☁ Tonari- I can't decide what exactly is wrong with Haru, but he's clearly disturbed. I keep coming back to Bipolar and Conduct Disorder (the precursor to Antisocial Personality Disorder, but you have to be 18 to be diagnosed with that, probably because they want to make sure it's not just a rebellious phase before they label you with a basically untreatable disorder XD) Anyway, so I finished it. It's... okay? There were things that bugged me about it. I still think they would've been better off leaving it at two episodes and calling it good. I think the biggest thing for me, though, was that the characters felt lacking. I was missing something there, and I was actually way more interested in Natsume and Sasahara (background) than I ever was in Shizuku and Haru. And even then. Final MAL score: 6.

☁ I've started Tsuritama now. I've seen one episode, and my only reaction currently is basically: O_o Also watched the first ep of Silver Spoon that came out. It's interesting, I guess? Main character is kind of an idiot. I mean. Who doesn't know that chickens poop eggs? Seriously? What's he even doing there, and why doesn't he want to go home? I'm curious about these things. So yeah, it has my attention for the time being.

☁ I didn't really do anything productive Friday-Saturday-Sunday. Friday I went out for the day with my sister. It was hot and humid and gross. I mean, it was okay at first, but after a while I thought I was going to have a heat stroke. Like seriously, I looked like a tomato at one point and I wasn't sunburnt. But yeah. Otherwise, it was cool. We went to the museum and looked at their newest exhibit on the Civil War (and more accurately, New York's role in it), which was pretty damn cool. Had Thai food for lunch (omnomnom). Kelly got incense. We walked around A LOT. So I spent Saturday and Sunday recovering, basically, because I way overdid it (and might've actually had heat exhaustion, that would explain a lot. XD) Monday I did, at least, get those three garbage bags out of my room finally, and I did a cleaning session which produced another. Yesterday, I didn't get anything done again, but that was totally Kelly's fault because she was all, LET'S GO TO DENNY'S, SMOTHERED FRIES SMOTHERED FRIES SMOTHERED FRIES. Soooooo we went to Denny's, and walked around Target and the mall for a while. XD Needless to say, I'm done with Outside for a while except for when absolutely necessary.

☁ I might've gotten a little testy on Tumblr the other day after seeing a post that infuriated me, and went into a two part rant that was basically about how an atheist is not obligated to feel grateful for being given religious platitudes after a death/tragedy, and that doesn't make them an emotionless monster. Um. Yeah. <_< I've apparently been feeling ranty lately. I never did post that thing about TM I showed you guys last time, though, so at least there's that? XD

☁ Aaaand finally, before I forget to mention it- blind_go is back for a mini round! :D Here is info and the support thread. Write something if you can! I need to go bunny hunting...

verloren1983: (*facepalm*)
[livejournal.com profile] blind_go guessing post! So for anybody who's new to the game, here's how this works. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go is a guess the writer challenge for the Hikaru no Go fandom. You read the fics here, and if you think you know which fics I wrote, you can make a guess here with what you think is my ID. If you guess right, you can ask for a drabble from me~ (I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if it's too brainbreaky. So be nice.) It won't necessarily be anytime SOON (*looks warily at the round 3 drabble she still owes*), but I promise it will get done. Eventually.

So make a guess and put a prompt with your guess in case you're right. If you need any clues, my writing archive is at [livejournal.com profile] vfic83 or you can go to my AO3. One guess per player. Comments will be screened in order to not spoil guessing for everyone. Have fun and good luck! :D


(Exempt this round are the modlies, for obvious reasons, Lish, Inoru, and Qem. I think that's it? <_<; )

I'll be honest here, I haven't really been paying too much attention to LJ/DW- which mostly has to do with [livejournal.com profile] blind_go and work kicking my ass, to be honest. ^_^; But eh. So what's up?

☁ AP form sent out. $25 is a little bit of an ouch just to get a score mailed out, but considering how much one class costs, it's a bargain. Once the school gets that, we'll see about changing the Sociology 100 to Social Psychology. ^^ Still need to call the doctor's office and have my immunization records sent out. Need to do that next week. >_<

☁ I feel like I should say something about Obama and his finally claiming his position for gay marriage. On one hand, yes, this is good. On the other, I have two reactions: one, it's about god damned time; and two, what is he going to DO about it? The announcement is clearly politically motivated, considering the timing, so I just worry that he's going to say this and then nothing is going to come of it. Aside from that, it's a big risk and I'm not convinced that it'll pay off. He may have just won Romney the election.

☁ There is apparently a Thai food place downtown I didn't know about. I've never had Thai food and I'm curious, so... hopefully soon I'll be able to go. Kelly likes this place, so that's saying something. We're trying to coordinate a day to go down when we both have off and it's not super crappy outside... which is more difficult than it sounds, lately. So we'll see. ^_^

Under the cut is random gaming/fandom stuff~ )

...I really should start posting more so these don't get so ridiculous. Eh.

☁ I've gone through the BG pieces. (Yay for Opera Mini at work? ^_^;;; ). As far as guessing, I have a chart, and have marked off 4 people with varying levels of certainty. There's one I'm half expecting to change before I submit my guesses. And no Ai, I haven't found you yet- though I'm going to think about it some more. I still have a little time before I have to put in guesses.

☁ The mosquitoes have been out with a vengeance. They're normally not around this late, but it's been unseasonably warm for late September, plus there's been all this water between Irene and the massive amount of rain we had this summer... yeah. The fucking things are EVERYWHERE. One bit me on the forehead today. ;~; She got me good, too. It bit me, and a little later Stef was like, "uh, your forehead is REALLY red." I went to go look- there's a huge swollen bump on my freaking head, not even kidding. UGH. I hate being a bug magnet. STOP LOVING MY BLOOD, DAMN YOU!

☁ Apparently both Lane Bryant and Capital One have decided to increase my credit limit. LB is now $200 ($100 before, though $200 will be more convenient on the rare occasions that I do use it, because LB is expensive) and CO is $500 when it was $200 before, even though I think the most I've ever had on a bill was around $100. I know they're trying to trick me into spending more money (which is not going to work), but kind of nice anyway. It's good to know that it's there if something happens and I need it. ^_^

☁ I saw a guy from high school the other day... which happens every once in a while, it's an unfortunate side effect of working where I do. I never got along with this particular guy, and he's apparently just as much of a dick as ever. He acted like I was some kind of traitor because I don't live in my hometown anymore. Like seriously? Anybody who ever knew me even a little bit would've known I was never going to stay there. I'm from Smalltown, USA- very quiet, closed off community. It was like being in a little cocoon protected from the world outside. (Additionally, my parents kept us in an additional "bubble", which Stef and I joke about now. That's neither here nor there, but it does explain a lot about my personality, I think. Sheltered x2.) Even now, sometimes I'll get blindsided by something that is apparently normal everywhere else, but is totally alien to me. My hometown is too restrictive, too far away from everything. It was a nice place to grow up as a young kid, and I visit for a couple of days now and then, but it's not someplace I want to live again. When I hit my teens it really started to be more suffocating than protective, and it hasn't changed that much. (Though the one small general store does actually make really good subs. I make a point to get one when I visit. :3) But seriously, judging me because I'm not up there anymore? As if it actually matters to me what he thinks of me? Pfffffffffft. He doesn't even know me. It just irritates me that he was being such a asshole, it was totally uncalled for, you know?

☁ Also, I'm watching Doctor Who, and there's this woman in this episode, her name is apparently Sophia Myles... I'm not normally into blondes that much, but HOLY FUCK:



(The picture is not from Doctor Who, but whatever.) Just. Wow. I could look at her all day. And I mean that in a totally not creepy, non-stalkerish way. <_<

☁ Urgh LJ. >_< Issues. Though it seems better now than it did earlier today- it's loading, at least.

☁ There's a netflix-like site for video games. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?! It's called Gamefly. I predict that this will be either the stupidest thing I've ever done or the most brilliant thing I've ever done. Probably the former. On the upside, it means I can try out a whole bunch of stuff without spending a fortune. ^_^; And when I feel like it's not worth it anymore, I can just cancel it, no problem. The subscription is kind of expensive ($16 a month), so probably I'm going to have the account active off and on as it's warranted.

[For anyone who might be curious- Epic Mickey seems interesting, but the camera and controls are frustrating as hell. You can't tell where the hell you're going (or supposed to be going) half the time. You'll be in the middle of trying to jump and the camera will whirl around with no warning, making you fall to your death. Not cool. I put it in the mailbox this afternoon, entirely glad I didn't buy it. Good in theory, bad in execution.]

☁ I somehow managed to squeak [info]blind_go in at the last minute. (Literally. I sent the e-mail at 11:59pm, no lie.) I really should've defaulted. It's pointless and all over the freaking place and just. UGH. Haaaaate. I procrastinated until just before and you can tell (and not just by the typos). I'm honestly kind of afraid to look at the comments on it. There are three other fics in various stages of "incomplete" sitting on my desktop, too, but those just weren't going anywhere or had no hope of being done in time. One in particular wanted to be a long thing. Meh.

Haven't actually decided whether or not to put up a guessing post this time, as I'm probably horrifically obvious and I already owe SO MUCH CRAP from previous rounds and various other things it's ridiculous. Hmm. :/ Also I've read a few things, but certainly not the entire list. I just haven't felt like it. Maybe tomorrow. Or something. It's not like I don't read quickly, so it's not a huge deal.

☁ I ended up going to both Saturday festivals, the more local one in the morning. There was a vendor there who makes his own candles and this shit was SO GOOD, I swear to god. I wanted almost everything. I did limit myself to two votives and a big one. I also got a pack of 15 yummy incense sticks for $1 at another vendor. Probably would've bought more but the guy was kind of rude. I went to Irish Fest a bit later. Honestly? It was lame. ^_^;;; It seems SMALLER now, which sucks. I did get a cool dreamcatcher from a sweet Spanish lady (Irish Fest. Go figure.) and her adorable 5-ish year old daughter, and a pair of earrings. Also over the course of the day there were fried dough sticks and ribbon chips and hot dogs, none of which I should've had, but eh. I probably won't bother going next year. Too bad.

☁ Birthday was fun. Got entirely too drunk, but I was able to sleep and recover without having to haul my ass into work, so it's all good. I had dinner with Stef- apparently Olive Garden does carry out? It cut what would've been a 40 minute wait in half and we just ate at my place. Good to know. You still get salad (with their amaaaaaazing Italian dressing in a container) and bread sticks and everything. :D :D :D :D :D

I do need to start spending some money here, though... I still have $50 in gift cards for Barnes and Noble from CHRISTMAS, got another $25 for my birthday, and then Erin sent me a $50 e-gift card for Amazon (I didn't even know you could do that. O_o). Uh. Yeah. How did that even happen?

Also I'm hungry.

☁ Vacation~ I have spent the last three days doing absolutely freaking nothing. Went out to Friday's with Mary on Tuesday, which was fun, and we're supposed to go out today so I can get a "birthday outfit". Because, apparently, I can't wear a regular t-shirt on my birthday, I need to wear something that I look amazing in. I'm not so sure about that one happening. We will see. :/

☁ One of the (three) books I'm currently reading is something called "An Underground Education" by Richard Zacks... fascinating stuff. Disgusting, at times, but really interesting. Some of it so far I've already known, but a lot of it I haven't. And the Mark Twain stuff is freaking hilarious. Seriously. I haven't read anything of his since I was a kid (LOVED The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, heh.)... I think it's time to revisit those sometime soon. ^_^

☁ It's now the 15th- meaning about 4 1/2 days until the [info]blind_go deadline. I think it's time to panic. WHY THE FUCK do I always do this to myself? Seriously, WHY? >_< I'm starting to think I'm going to have to take my own advice and disconnect the wireless on my laptop. That's a sad state of affairs. I was planning on getting up semi early and going to the library for a change of scenery, but uh, it's kind of pouring, so... I think I'll pass on that one for today.

☁ There are two different local festivals on Saturday, so I need to figure out which one I want to go to. Meh. (Though if I don't get anything written in the next two days, I may just skip it and stay home to write... something.)  I suppose I could go to Irish Fest first, stay for a few hours, then go to the other one (which ends at 5:30). Or vice versa. It seems like a waste of money to go to both though, and Irish Fest IS the more expensive one... I DON'T KNOW. D:

Okay, I've spent the last hour and a half screwing around instead of writing- going to get in the shower and try this again. With the wireless off. :/

☁ The meme thing went to hell pretty quickly, big shock. I'll catch up on that later so I'm not spamming you all.

☁ BG: Did a partial canon review- the only thing it did was ping my Hikaru/Akira fangirly sense, which most definitely was NOT the intention. Dammit. >_< (Needless to say, I haven't started. I'm hoping to get something going so I don't have to resort to the default. *cough* <_<)

☁ Note to self: Mint extract is not interchangeable with peppermint extract. I bought mint extract in order to make a mint flavored frosting for brownies... only to discover upon re-reading the recipe that it actually calls for peppermint extract despite being called "Chocolate Chip Mint Brownies". Now, all variations of mint are disgusting to me, so I really have NO idea what the difference is between the two. Some research turned up that mint extract creates a kind of toothpaste taste. Not something you actually want to consume. Basically, if you want to have something edible, you need to get peppermint. Good to know for future reference.

☁ On a related note, I've officially made frosting for the first time. It was super easy, though I'm not a fan of food coloring and powdered sugar gets freaking EVERYWHERE even if you're careful, so I'd still rather buy it in a can given the option. I can't honestly tell you whether it's any good or not (eew)... but what I can tell you is that despite the recipe being specifically for the pan size I was using, it was about twice as much as I needed. I put it on SUPER THICK so it's a bit better, but I still have about a cup and a half of frosting left.

☁ Also baking related: How fucking awesome are these? A whole lot of work and even more food coloring, but awesome. Might be cool to do it with two or three colors, too- someones favorite colors for their birthday or something.

☁ I've gone back to not really being hungry... not good. Seriously: I've had roughly half of what I should've had for a minimum and am just not hungry. As it was, about half of what I did have was ust because I went, "holy crap, I should really eat something." I know this kind of thing always passes, but it's still unnerving.

Freaking brilliant. Just saying. Warning for language, but it's nothing worse than what you guys have seen here on occasion with the singular exception of c**t- I -hate- that word, but it's used here to make a point, so I'm okay with that.

....holy crap, how did it get that late? On that note, I really super need to go to bed. Meh.

☁ I've had my claddagh ring put away for quite some time now (I had my reasons). Recently, I started thinking that I should start wearing it again, because I really do love the piece and it's a design I've never been able to find a duplicate of. I pulled it out tonight... and it doesn't fit properly anymore. :( I can wear it on my middle finger, but it still makes me nervous that I'm going to lose it. SOB.

☁ Officially six episodes into D.Grayman. I have two thoughts so far:
1. Didn't FMA already do this plot? And from what I can see so far- though it's only been six episodes, so I can't really properly judge- FMA did it better. Just saying.
2. What really keeps bugging me right from the beginning is that Allen's voice is so... soft and gentle. It works for Akira in Hikago, but it doesn't really work for me here. But maybe I just need to get used to it, or something. I don't know. Every time he opens his mouth I'm expecting a different voice (something like... I don't know, Ed's or Ryoma's seiyuu.).

☁ I'm now officially caught up on Loveless. Ended up re-reading most of volume 9, too, because I didn't remember exactly where I was. Is it just me, or is Ritsuka a lot more grown up all of a sudden? I mean, it's been a long time, so my memory may be faulty, but eh. All of a sudden I'm going "Wait, he's still supposed to be 12?", and I don't remember doing that before. I have a sneaking suspicion that they're doing that so when Soubi eventually pounces him, it won't seem so bad. XD

☁ So basically, I'm doing everything BUT working on BG. ^_^;;; The procrastination process is fully underway! I do have a playlist, though, so there's that. And I did a piece of investigating for something that may have potential, but it's definitely a case of "moar research needed!" Ugh. We'll see. If I can't work with it, I'll throw it in the free the bunnies post.

☁ Hikago peeps: Favor? Can we get some other topics going on the support thread? Please? ANYTHING. It's really super awkward right now and I think it might be preventing other people from posting anything. It is sad making. :(

☁ I put in for vacation time next month- a whole week and a half. Happy birthday to ME! It will be delicious. :3 I haven't really figured out what I'm going to DO for a week and a half, but that's part of the appeal, isn't it? WHATEVER I WANT. :D

☁ This whole favoritism game a couple of people are playing is getting really old really fast. Let's put it this way- if a guy that barely works has noticed, it's a problem. Henry got elected to cover register for a few minutes so I could do my photo stuff at the end of the night. We were both kind of "Bzuh?" about it because he was not the only person available, and little miss perfect wasn't doing anything. Henry was like, "well, she has senority," with an eyeroll, because of course she's barely been there at all compared to the rest of us. To which I responded, "Jeremy wants to fuck her, so she gets to do whatever she wants."   "Well said." XDDD

☁ Why is cologne so expensive? Seriously. It's kind of ridiculous. On the upside- new cologne. More of the Adidas Moves, which is my happy smell, and then I got Usher He, which I -love- but I'm not sure how it's going to work with my body chemistry, so we'll see.

☁ Finished off Hetalia Axis Powers finally. I'd kept putting it off, but I only had 10 episodes left, so might as well finish it, right? Overall? It had it's moments, but eh. I can take it or leave it, really. *shrug*

☁ I started Suikoden III for a bit. I'm reminded quite vividly why I didn't get terribly far into it the first time: the camera is awkward, movement is awkward, graphics are awkward, battles make no freaking sense...  it doesn't feel like a Suikoden game, and I don't mean that as a compliment. I'm trying to give it a chance, especially since I'm still in chapter 1, but. *sigh*

☁ FUCK. I've started to work on the BG playlist, which will be a work in progress for a few days (it's day 2 and I'm in J. XD)... I just got bunnied. I won't say whether it's or not it's something I can actually use for BG (I've got to keep SOME secrets ^_~), but either way it's with a character that I am absolutely NOT comfortable writing. Fuck fuck fuck.

☁ Speaking of bunnies, I had an old evil bunny rear it's ugly head at me yet again other day while Pye and I were discussing BG. She kept trying to tell me that bunnies were cute. The following conversation ensued:

Ver: Pye, it's *******. It's not cute, it's a disaster waiting to happen. >_<
Pye: okay yes, it is
Ver: XDDD
Pye: >_> I mean. it will be troubling

...that's comforting. -_- Sad thing is, the disaster fic is probably the best idea I've got. I have a short list, but everything is half baked at best. *facepalm*

Sign ups for Round 12 of [info]blind_go are up. As is the support thread, which is almost empty and quite lonely at the moment. ;~; I have yet to do the rest of the stuff I owe from the last round. *headdesk* And let's not even talk about the rest of the crap I owe. SOB. I did get pinged for a bunny. Unfortunately, I can't use it for any of the owed prompts. I think. *stares at list* Hrm. I'll have to think about that. Might look in the bunny folder too and see if there's anything in there I can work with. Probably not- most of the stuff in there is in the "evil bunny" category, hence it being shoved away in a folder that I try not to look at. :/

☁ Good news: The pendant I ordered came in! It's awesome!
Bad news: Guess what doesn't fit the leather cord I already had? Yeah. The loop at the top is pretty small and it can't get past the metal bits of the cord. I did manage to scramble up a chain for it, and that will work as a temporary solution, but meh. The chain turns my skin green, so I'll have to come up with something.

All in all, I really have to pimp this site. First of all: Five dollar coupon! They have lots of stuff (not just dragons), from pagan jewelry to crosses, celtic to kanji. They shipped SUPER FAST- I ordered on July 29th, but it was around 11pm, so really July 30th. I got it today. Five days. And the pendant is really amazing looking. Even Kelly said it was gorgeous- shocked the hell out of me because she's not into dragons AT ALL. It really is a beautiful piece and I'm quite enamored with it.



☁ Scored a gorgeous Orly nail polish at work for $1.75 (they're normally almost $8). It's called Royal Velvet and is a bluish purple depending on the light. Totally loving it, which is both a good and a bad thing. Good because yay polish! Bad because it's on clearance, so obviously we won't be carrying it anymore. But if it hadn't been on clearance I wouldn't have bought it anyway- I refuse to spend that much on nail polish EVER. I don't care how pretty it is. That being said, this is my first "higher end" nail polish (highest I ever went before was Sally Hansen, usually I buy NYC kind of stuff)... I can't say that I can really tell the difference. Which just supports my view of not spending a lot of money on this stuff, you know?

Also got a pack of stencils for nail art. That didn't go so well. First couple were fine, but then when I removed the built up polish, the stencil curled up and wouldn't uncurl, and it wouldn't lay flat properly to use it again. Meh. I might return it if I remember to later.

☁ I figured out something on Monday which might explain why I've been crawling up the walls- I've only used three days of vacation time. IT WASN'T EVEN ALL AT ONCE. And I never call out unless I'm dying, so there's been no sick time either. So seriously, the last proper vacation I had was last October. It is now AUGUST. Gee. That might explain a few things. On the upside, this means that having the time available to take off around Thanksgiving when Erin comes to visit is absolutely not going to be a problem. ^_^;

I was planning on taking my birthday off anyway, like I do every year. (Hey. I had to go to school almost every year because of when it falls. Too late for summer vacation EVER, too early to hit a break, snow day, or even a freaking field trip. Now that I have the option, I'm not doing anything I don't want to do on my birthday.) SO... might take a week off or something there. I'm kind of thinking I want to go somewhere, though, even if it's just for a few days (because hotels are expensive, yo). Not somewhere too terribly far, since I don't really want to deal with the plane thing if I can help it. So... maybe NYC or Lake George or Philly. Irish Fest is that weekend, but that's in Ballston Spa now. Eeew. I don't know, I have about a month and a half to think about it and do some research. Figure out if can even swing it, financially. We'll see.

☁ Pye got me thinking about old movies/shows last night. Nostalgia~ So! Here are a few things that I was thinking about!
My Little Pony: Escape from Katrina- This is actually the ONLY thing I remember seeing of MLP as a kid. Kind of strange. I don't remember the OP in the beginning, either.
Serendipity the Pink Dragon- Originally a Japanese anime, which I never realized as a kid. OH MY FREAKING GOD the dubbing is terrible (the surprised!noises Bobby makes when Serendipity hatches out of her egg sound like porn, no lie. I had to turn it off. XD), but... MY CHILDHOOD. I loved this movie as a Little Ver. :D
Aladdin and the Magic Lamp/Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp- Another anime that I didn't know was an anime at the time. More bad dubbing, but I've heard worse.
Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer- Kind of like MLP, the only thing I remember from this franchise. Once you get past the singing in the beginning, it's actually still amusing to watch.

Edit: RARGH. Cutting is finally working again, but the whole thing has a white background that I most definitely did not add. WHY DO YOU HATE ME, DW? WHYYYYYYYY?

[info]blind_go guessing post! So for anybody who's new to the game, here's how this works. [info]blind_go is a guess the writer challenge for the Hikaru no Go fandom. You read the fics here, and if you think you know which fics I wrote, you can make a guess here with what you think is my ID. If you guess right, you can ask for a drabble from me~ (I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if it's too brainbreaky.) It won't necessarily be anytime SOON (*looks warily at the round 3 drabble she still owes*), but I promise it will get done. Eventually.

So make a guess and put a prompt with your guess in case you're right. If you need any clues, my writing archive is at [info]vfic83. The only hint you get, because it's marked on the author list anyway, is that I did write more than one piece. That knocks your chances to 1/4 even if you make a totally random guess! One guess per player. Comments will be screened in order to not spoil guessing for everyone. Have fun and good luck! :D

Today sucked. Like REALLY sucked.

1. Ate breakfast and not even five minutes later I was running to the bathroom. :/ I didn't actually throw up, I just really, really thought I was going to. It never completely went away, either- I've been sick to my stomach all freaking day.
2. Got to work and found out that Mike called out (in other words, maybe the stomach thing is a bug that's going around and not a 'my body hates me' related thing like I'd assumed it was, yaaaaaaaaaaaay. -_-), so it was just me and Jeremy. On a truck night. Oh, and it was busy and people were being FUCKING insane. Okay, perfect example: I had a woman that wanted a price adjustment from a few days ago (for a coupon we can't even take, but whatever). She didn't seem to understand anything I said to her and I had to repeat everything I said three times- and even then, some things still didn't seem to sink in. (It was not a language barrier, she spoke perfect English. It was a stupidity barrier.) I did the price adjustment for the two waters on her receipt, having to explain to her what I was doing about four times, she bought her other stuff, and when we were done I put the bottle of water I used for the adjustment to the side so I can take the next customer. Finally. Then she goes, "Can't I take that?" Um, no? We're not going to let you just walk off with shit you haven't paid for. "You already have them at home, right?" "Well yeah, but I wanted another one." "..................you never said that." "Oh. Well, I want another one." GAH! You couldn't have said that, oh I don't know, BEFORE I rang all your other shit up? So yeah. It was that kind of crap all day today.
3. At some point I apparently did something to myself- I went "Ow, my chin kind of hurts," put my finger on it, and... oh look, I'm bleeding. >_< I put a band aid on my chin to deal with it and therefore looked like a total tool for the rest of the day, but I can't be bothered to care.
4. We've had this woman coming in every day for a few days now that drops off ten bazillion things for us to do for photo and totally backs everything up. I ended up staying an hour late dealing with that whole mess. Remember, still don't feel well.
5. I went home and discovered that I left my keys at work. Luckily I've learned from previous airheadedness in regards to that and keep an extra set of keys in my workbag. I grabbed some garbage to go out and went to the grocery store for a few things. I'd finished getting my stuff and was on the way to go pay when I realized I DIDN'T HAVE ANY FUCKING MONEY. My bank card was in my god damned work bag that I dropped off at the house. >_< SO I put the stuff back, walked back home, got money, went back to the store, and got my fucking groceries. I was seriously considering alcohol at that point, but quickly realized that it would probably just make me sicker anyway. Oh, and the cashier that was there is a chatty one, so he yapped at me for fucking ever when I just wanted to get the hell home... but I haven't seen him in a while, so I didn't want to be a total asshole and take off.

The only good thing about today? Osama Bin Laden is finally dead. Yes, I realize that there are going to be people to take his place... but at least he can't hurt anybody anymore. I'm sitting here watching Obama's speech in tears, no lie, and I'm not one that cries easily. It's easy to forget how wonderful a speaker he is until you're confronted with it- this is twice in a few days now, the other one being after they released his birth certificate- again, because apparently the short form wasn't good enough *eyeroll*. The second isn't in the same league, I don't think, and he was CLEARLY angry (I don't blame him one bit for that!), but still, he kept his cool and it was a good speech. Now maybe we can put this incredibly racist birther crap aside (I'm looking at you, Donald Trump, you piece of shit) and move on to other things. As Obama said, "We've got better things to do."

In other news, I wrote some for bg. Not even 100 words of epic terrible, mind, but it's something. (I'm totally going to do day 2 of the meme, just. Not right now. Need sleep. Maybe when I wake up, the day will be not full of epic suck.)

☁ How is it that I'm STILL finding stuff that I assume is from when I was drugged all to hell from appendix-splodey times because I don't remember downloading it? WTF, self? THAT WAS THREE YEARS AGO. The sad thing is I'm not even kidding.

☁ The new term for gay is apparently now "rainbow-y". I'm totally using that the next time I come out to someone. "I'm rainbow-y. :D" *gigglefits*

☁ I should be working on [info]blind_go . Which, by the way, I still haven't started. Instead, my brain is torturing me with completely unrelated bunnies. One is finished at a bit over 2k and the other one isn't even close to the point and it's already over 2500. *headdeskheaddeskheaddesk* To add insult to injury, I've also totally been the queen of typos lately. WTF. I'm usually more careful than that in fic. At least. I -think- I'm more careful than that in fic. XD

☁ Somehow having both "Pay credit card bill" and "Do homework assignment" on my to-do list from the other day is a little O_o inducing. XD

☁ E-mailed a different person about an apartment share. I ACTUALLY GOT AN E-MAIL BACK! \o/ She has a few people interested, though, which doesn't surprise me considering availability in my area. I also was upfront and told her I that I'm gay (not in the initial inquiry e-mail, I promise XD), as much as that makes me cringe to basically go "Hi! I'm gay!". Because that's a potential dealbreaker and I'd rather not have issues with that later. Hopefully something will actually come of this one, but I'm not going to hold my breath. If it does pan out... it's for June 1st, so that gives me time to pack and clean and get things done, even if I don't do anything before [info]blind_go  is due. (And holy SHIT that's due in a little over a week, asdjklsajdksal). I just need to get a freaking move on... needs to get done anyway.

☁ I've been staring at my icons a lot lately- particularly the ones that were done in paint before I had photoshop and are therefore absolutely TERRIBLE quality. Cue Ver expression: :/ That's probably not a good sign. Especially since a lot of them I would need to go and get screenshots of again, and. Ugh. I did, at least, redo one of the LJ ones that was bothering me the most. It's not fantastic or anything, but it's miles better than what it was. Like. I might actually use it on occasion now. XD

☁ I've also been staring at a site I previously didn't know existed, because apparently they're having a sale, and trying to figure out whether I want to purchase anything. (vague reference is vague) But then I think... I probably want to wait on that one, TBH. Especially if the apartment thing works out- I need a new mattress anyway, but it gets put to priority if I move, because I am NOT moving that piece of shit mattress anywhere but the garbage heap. Just saying.
verloren1983: (Kitty Ahhhh!)
☁ I was asked to post these, so to my absolute mortification, here you go. These icons are totally Lish's fault. Just... don't even ask. Seriously. Though I need to mess around more with the first one because I still don't like it.

       

☁ Been re-reading some old Harry/Draco fic. Hell, I missed these two. <3 It's totally not helping me write [info]blind_go , though. Pffft. I've also been DL-ing a lot of PoT doujin lately. XDDD

☁ Also fandom related: people have been posting to the kink meme, which is hysterical since it's three years old. I generally still get posts on it every once in a while, but the sudden interest is amusing. :P

☁ And speaking of Harry Potter, couple of annoyances about the new release of Deathly Hallows Part 1. The first is that Walmart had an exclusive on the special edition DVD. Really, WB? I know the studios are trying to push the Bluray, but honestly. I don't have a Bluray player. I have no intention of purchasing one- if I'm going to spend the money, I might as well save a bit more and buy a PS3 so I can play games on the damn thing. STOP TRYING TO SHOVE THE FUCKING BLURAY DOWN MY THROAT.

*ahem*

The other thing that pissed me off was actually in the deleted scenes. Now... when I saw DH1 in the theater, I was incredibly disappointed that it didn't have the scene with Harry and Dudley when the Dursley's were leaving. It was a big moment for the both of them. But guess what? It was in the special features. What the ever loving hell. I think it's WORSE, knowing that they filmed it and decided that it WASN'T IMPORTANT, as opposed to not shooting it (there could've been a number of reasons why they didn't end up shooting it, after all). Seriously. What the fuck, WB.

☁ WHAT THE HELL IS IT WITH RANDOM PEOPLE INSTANT MESSAGING ME LATELY? It's getting ridiculous.

☁ Dear Mother Nature: We had about 50 thousand feet of snow this winter- I promise you, the ground doesn't need anymore water for a while. Possibly the entire summer. You don't need to rain all freaking week. No love, Ver

☁ Class started today. So as part of my first assignment, I'm supposed to be reading at least one book about writing and/or creativity. I have a bunch on my laptop that I have yet to read (in addition to one or two physical ones whose whereabouts are currently unknown), so I decided to look through. Just on the lappy, I have enough that I could read two books a week for almost the entire length of the course. O_o And only three of the 20 are grammar centered. *headdesk* Although on the other hand, it's as good of an excuse as any to get some of those under my belt?

The other part of the assignment is to get a "writer's journal", which isn't a problem because I have a zillion empty notebooks. Unofficial assignments through the course include writing for 10 minutes a day NO MATTER WHAT and to spend at least an hour a week doing something creative besides writing (I'm thinking scrapbooking/playing in photoshop. :D)

Possibly triggery/TMI, who knows. Cut just in case. )

☁ Note to self: Edy's Slow Churned Light in the Caramel Delight isn't as good as Haagen Dazs' Dulce de Leche- but it's an acceptable substitute. Less calories for more, too- the Dulce de Leche is 290 for 4 oz, whereas the Caramel Delight is 190 for 5.8 oz. Sweet deal!

☁ Saw Tangled- it was cute, standard Disney fare, but it wasn't AMAZING!!! like I'd heard it was. A little disappointing on that score. For sheer entertainment value, I'd still rather watch the (somewhat) older stuff. Give me Mulan, Pocahantas, Hercules, The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch. (*cough* Historical issues aside for some of that <_< ). Disney does their best work when breaking their "helpless princess" mold. I just wish they'd do it more often.

...maybe I'm just getting old, I thought Princess and the Frog was "meh" too. XDDD

☁ Went to Juicy Burger with my sister for the first time on Wednesday. I've been hearing for FOREVER that they were ZOMGSOGOOD. I'll give credit where it's due, they make a mean chicken sandwich- which is grilled, by the way. They don't put mayo on it unless you ask. Plus it has two big slices of tomato and a bunch of lettuce. The worst thing there is the bun, so I can't feel terrible about it. SO GOOD. The fries, however, left a lot to be desired. Very greasy and they definitely could've been cooked a bit longer. Probably won't get those again. I don't mind splurging on fries sometimes- I love me some french fries- but they should at least be worth it, damn. XP

☁ Been listening to this song pretty much on repeat since yesterday... but I'm not going to tell you guys what it is, because it's pinging me a bit for the EVIL BG BUNNY and I don't want to make myself even more obvious than I probably would be if I end up including something with that. If I submit it for BG. Ehehe. ^_^;;;

Also if I end up doing some kind of weird Mulan/Hikago crossover thing at some point, I'm totally blaming my playlist. Just saying. >(

Hikago on the Brain~

☁ I just found out today that Hikago will finish publishing in English in May! Wooooooooooooo~ Okay, I'm a few volumes behind because they never HAVE what I need when I go to the bookstore, but nevermind. Still, this is exciting. When it comes out and I get the last few volumes, it will be the second COMPLETE series I have- the other being Death Note. .......urgh, I probably look like a total Obata fangirl, don't I? ^_^;;; I HAVE OTHER THINGS, I PROMISE! *flails*

☁ I'm starting to think that I'm going to have to write the evil BG bunny and get it out of my system so I can, you know, come up with a better idea. I even put a cute bunny picture as my cell background to remind myself that I'm supposed to be bunnying- no dice. Argh. It's eating my braaaaaaaaaaain. D:

☁ That being said, I really have to pick up my re-watch of Hikago again. It got frustrating because I was doing screencaps too, so even watching one takes freaking FOREVER. Maybe if I start doing one a day? I won't be done by the time I need to be finished with BG, obviously- I was only 10 episodes in to begin with- but it would be something.

☁ I've started trying to post what I've got of the icon bases, too. I mean, it's been just over a year, holy crap. It's just... a pain in the ass to put them all in the chart. D: (though I found a way to make it a bit easier, thank GOD.) I only had the first two episodes cropped, though, out of the ten I have capped, so I'm currently chopping up episode 3. Oye. Something else to work on. But maybe doing Hikago things will kick the muses into high gear for BG? One can hope.

☁ Some new DS games I didn't know about- Okamiden, for one. A new Kingdom Hearts. You Don't Know Jack, which I remember from the original Playstation and LOVED (Even if it got to the point where nobody would play with me anymore because no one could beat me. Boo.). Some other random RPG's that look interesting too. Clearly I need to keep a half an eye on Amazon. This is what happens when I no longer get gaming magazines and there's no gaming store in the immediate vicinity. I lose all track of shiny new games. XD

☁ Because of this, I discovered that I'm having some trouble with my R4. The new stuff won't work and I'm trying to upgrade it and it's just... not going well, to say the least. *sigh* I finally got it to stop giving me this error:



after about two hours, but the damn games still won't load. Urgh. *headdesks forever*

☁ Also windows decided to freak out on me earlier. Clearly technology hates me today.

☁ Edit: Got an e-mail saying that the release date for the final book in the Eragon series has been announced- the title is Inheritance, and it's set to come out November 8th of this year. Also cover art. You know. For anyone that cares. ^_^;;;

GROAN.

☁ Got bunnied at work. The good news is that it'll work for BG and I'm positive I can get it over the 1k word minimum. The bad news is. Um. All I can really say without giving it away is that I'm not sure I want to go there. *kicks bunny* It's an idea I would LOVE to mess around with, but... :/ I guess we'll see. So far it's the best idea I've got, but hopefully something else will come up.

☁ I was going through some music trying to come up with a BG playlist (which is incredibly difficult this time, urgh), and this song came up. As always with songs, not 100% accurate, but mostly. Appropriate song is appropriate. I'm working on it. :)

☁ What makes people think they have the right to make nasty commentary about your attempts to lose weight/eat healthier? I was getting some cereal, and since I have a tendency to put WAY too much milk in cereal, I measure it first. It works for me. Kelly saw me doing this and sneered "You're measuring your milk now? Isn't that going too far?" .....seriously? We proceeded to get into a fight because apparently me telling her that it was none of her business was me being a bitch when she was "just kidding." Right. Because you totally use that disgusted tone of voice when you're joking around with someone.

☁ EEEEEEEEEEE GLEE! Favorite. Episode. EVER. Kelly and I were squeeing through half the episode. I thought my heart would explode from squee. I've watched specific parts a bazillion times now. I've also taken a few screencaps. ^_^;;; And... Rachel's last song ended up good, as much as I hate to admit it. :/ And even though I was afraid at first, Puck's was surprisingly sweet. <3 And the Blaine and Kurt duet! <333!

☁ Edit: Totally forgot to mention this, because I was pissed off at the time... Kelly's boyfriend asked her if she was sure she wasn't faking being straight, when she mentioned watching Glee (Which I don't get, by the way- I know of a guy that was harrassed for being gay because he watches it, but if you're a girl, you're gay if you watch it? What? How does that make any sense in homophobe-logic? It doesn't follow their rules. Does not compute.) Anyway, Kelly turned to me and was like, "How do you fake being straight?" In all seriousness. I almost laughed at her, thinking "I don't know, I've never been any good at it." I mean really, how do you even answer something like that? XD

1. BG reveals are up. This was... well, it certainly wasn't my best round, but it wasn't my worst, either. Which is kind of sad. *shrug* That's what happens when I wait until the last minute. I meant to comment on everything too, but I just... didn't get around to it, and when I got home from work tonight I really didn't feel like reading. I'll get to it. Maybe over the next couple of days.

2. Still haven't gotten an e-mail back about the apartment. Bah.

3. Finished Kuroshitsuji II. I can honestly say that I definitely liked the first season better, to be honest. I kind of feel like they should've just left it at season 1. Just... eh. It felt like the whole point of season two was fanservice and to milk the series more. But mostly the fanservice. Which I wouldn't mind, except the first season wrapped up so nicely that the second confused things unnecessarily. Plus as I said before, shota is definitely not my thing and they were pretty heavy handed on the Claude/Alois, even if it was one-sided sometimes. Seems I'm not the only one- season two gets a lower score on MAL than the first, and there's a significant difference between their listed ranks. I should probably read the manga at some point.

4. I haven't quite decided what I'm watching next- on one hand, I should probably work on the stuff that I've had on hold forever (Bleach, FMA Brotherhood, Hellsing, Hetalia, Naruto... XD) On the other hand, Lish has been trying to sell Fairy Tail to me. Heh. ^_^;;;

5. On a related note, SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I just found out that Hourou Musuko has started airing! *flail* Must. Find. Subs!!!!!

6. It's almost 3am and I'm roughly 300 calories below where I should be as a MINIMUM- but I'm not only not hungry, but nothing here even sounds remotely appealing. And I really don't have the money to be shopping until Thursday.  I'd make macaroni and cheese, but by the time that would be done, I'd be ready to go to bed. Meh. Maybe I should drink some soda or something. Mmm, empty calories. Probably I should just leave it alone- it'll balance itself out over the next few days, I'm sure, and it's not something I'm in the habit of doing. Really, what I want? I've been craving fish of all things the last few days. And when I say fish, I mean the breaded and fried crap. I don't even like fish all that much- it's okay sometimes, but it's not something I usually seek out. Weird.

Fail, Ver. Epic fail. Way to not post for a month. >_< I am still alive, just kind of... retreating internally, really, thinking about things... and concentrating on other things. Let's update, shall we?

1. I got my hair cut about... eh, three weeks ago. It's REALLY short. Really, really short. I've never had it this short. O_o I've been told it suits me, though, and the reactions were fun to begin with because everyone was like "WOAH." One of the supervisors at work saw me from a bit of a distance and didn't know who I was! XD I've only gotten two bad responses so far- one, predictably, from my mother who hates it... and one from a guy at work who made a dick comment about how it was a guy's haircut. Pffft. I mean, in all fairness, it CAN be. If I push the bangs back, it looks VERY butch. But I don't wear it like that at work, and the bangs definitely soften it. So I can have it both ways and I kind of love that. All in all... I think I might keep it. I think I'm still getting used to it because it's a HUGE adjustment, but I like it, and I like how easy it is. And I know it looks okay on me because the reactions from even people I don't know (customers at work) has been positive to the point of being overwhelming.

2. Still continuing on the weight loss thing. I've lost 16 pounds now, also considering that I'm bloated from my body hating me. (It's particularly bad this time around- I was so nauseaus yesterday I had probably about half the calories I should've eaten. Bad, I know, but I felt like I was going to throw up without even eating anything. No need to encourage things along. Felt just as nauseous today, but doing a little better on the food front. Still not what I need, but better.) I actually ran... well, jogged for six minutes the other day. That's a huge deal. That would've been impossible for me before. So there's improvement! I'm not seeing any changes besides the weight loss and the exercise thing, but it'll happen. ^^ Can't wait till my pants start falling off~ But first is hitting and holding under my first goal, which should be soon. Then I'll be able to get Final Fantasy XIII~ :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

3. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go ... I probably should've just defaulted. Seriously. NOT my strongest showing this time around. You guys will see once reveals come up. *sigh* Serves me right, I guess, waiting until the day of deadline to really sit down and work on it. >_<

4. Coworker thinks I should get tested for endometriosis. The only problem with that is that it kind of requires surgery for a diagnosis, and on top of that, apparently most insurance won't even cover it unless you've tried to get pregnant and failed. Because, apparently, the horrifically painful periods aren't bad enough to warrant a diagnosis. Would I be willing to get surgery for something like that? Probably not, especially since it's a passing suspicion really, but it still pisses me off that it's not even an option. So, you know, whatever. That's so not happening. Something to keep in the back of my mind, I guess?

5.Started going through my books today in search of things that I'm willing to part with... because I do NOT have the space for all these books. Sigh. I have seven so far, but that's only the top two shelves of my big bookcase- that's not even including all of the other places I have books stashed. I know there's other ones too, so it should be at least 10. Maybe even closer to 20. This is... kind of painful, but I need to do it. At least start. There's books all over my room, so it's not something that's going to be funished until I actually clean the damn thing. Double sigh. The only question is, what do I -do- with them?

6. More fandomish stuff: I started watching Glee, because I kept hearing about it. My god. It's a TRAINWRECK. That's the only reason I'm still watching the damn thing- it's like when you see a car accident on the side of the road and you can't look away. D: Also, I think we've established before that I'm a masochist. XD I never really understood the big deal about autotuning until I watched this. It's horrible. It ruins the music for me. Bah. Which wouldn't be so bad if pretty much every character wasn't horribly written. All of them are either flaming assholes or completely two dimensional. Often both. *cough*Kurt*cough* So the show itself is bad on top of ruined music... NOT a good combination. People love this show WHY? DOES NOT COMPUTE. O_o

Also finally saw Sherlock Holmes, which I really liked. I came out of it NOT shipping Holmes/Watson, though. I see where people get that from, but... it actually screamed BROMANCE to me as opposed to OMG OTP FOREVER. Eh. Which is actually how Kirk/Spock in Star Trek Reboot hit me too. I would read fic if I came across it. But I don't ship it.

...does that mean my yaoi fangirl card gets taken away now? D:

Not so long between updates! Whee!

-[livejournal.com profile] blind_go  sign ups are a go! Anybody that's seen/read Hikaru no Go, go sign up! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D As usual, I have no idea what I'm going to write... but it's a shortfic round, so I'm sure I can come up with SOMETHING. ^^;;; I need to restart my Hikago watching, too. I got through episode 10 and stopped. I actually haven't really been watching too much anime recently. I need to stop that, I'm SO behind. ;_;

-Speaking of anime... did anybody else know that they actually made a third OVA for Boku no Pico? God. Talk about wanting to stab yourself in between the eyes with something very, very sharp... because, of course, in the interest of completion I had to watch it. I'm clearly a masochist. And somehow it ended up being even WORSE than the first two, and I didn't think that was possible. *shudder* Traumatized. For. Life. Just saying.

-Don't know if I told you guys, but my DS cracked in the middle. It still worked, but because of the crack, the top is working on getting separated from the bottom, and so I really needed to replace it. I mean, I've had the thing... eh, four or five years? Considering how much abuse it's taken, I certainly have no complaints about its lifespan. Anyway, got a shiny new BLUE one. :3 I've wanted one of those forever. The good thing is that now I don 't have to feel like I'm being horrifically indulgent getting a whole new one just for the color. XD This is LEGIT, dammit. Also I can keep the old white one and use it for travel~ That way if something happens to it in transit, it's not a big deal. :D

-I've been spending way too much money on game stuff recently... Kelly's boyfriend was selling his extra Xbox 360 (how do you even end up with two of those things, anyway? *baffled*) $100 without the hard drive... considering that I'd pay $150 in a shop for the same thing used, I figured it was too good to pass up. I gave him $20, so I need to give him the rest soon. $50 at the game store for a hard drive for the thing (20GB, because I'm probably never going to need anything bigger than that.) $70 for games. Guh. They didn't have Final Fantasy XIII, but they did have the two other games on my "MUST HAVE" list: Dragon Age and Fable II. Started Dragon Age before work yesterday, it's definitely interesting.  That's... actually what I'm going to be doing when I'm done with this. :3

-Last money related bit, I promise. I'm just really excited about this. XD I'll preface this by saying that I basically have no credit. It's this huge catch-22 that you need credit to get credit, which is why I've never been able to get a credit card for emergency purposes. However! I was in Lane Bryant the other day and they're always trying to push their store card... I've been rejected for it before, but what the hell, they give you a discount for trying. I was actually approved this time. O_o Not that I shop there a lot, and I have a limit of $100, but that's FINE. It's something to start with so I can actually start building my credit. \o/!!!! I'm so psyched.

-My older sister is driving us crazy. Thank god she's only here for a month. Okay, that's not a very nice thing to say, but seriously. I love her and all, but jeez.

-My dad and his wife apparently have a website that everybody else knew but me. I'm like... thanks guys. They have a sewing/alterations shop, which is totally weird thinking of my dad doing. He was always the techy type, not the sewing type. Eh. *shrug* There were no pictures or anything though, so I don't know what he looks like now. I was kind of curious. All of this... is not important, it's just a huge WTF for me.

-Colored my hair just for something different. It's a reddish brown... haven't decided whether I like it or not. We'll see. ^^

....weren't these entries supposed to get SHORTER? Bah. Okay, shutting up now. I have a book meme I keep meaning to put up, I should do that soon. XD

You know, I've really got to get better about doing entries again. I've been... okay, really lazy with LJ lately, and it's not just this journal, it's commenting and RP too. Don't know what's going on there, but it needs to stop. :/

1. Defaulted on blind_go for the first time since I started doing this in round 3. I just... meh. Had nothing. I had a serious lack of motivation, plus a lack of bunnies, and I really need to watch the series again- which I've started, but haven't gotten too far with. Ironically... AFTER deadline I got a bunny. Of course. *headdesk* I haven't read any of the entries yet, either. Gonna try to do that tomorrow.

2. Birthday was okay. There was some drama, which I knew there was going to be when my sister invited her friend Jim along, who proceeded to just go ahead and bring a DATE with him to the dinner without even asking if it was okay, in addition to being well over an hour late, but whatever. Overall it was fun, so it turned out alright.

2. I've gotten myself into a bit of a financial hole. Luckily, the money that I owe is to my savings account. Not that it means it's any less important, I need to pay that money back, but it's not quite as urgent and not a source of panic like it would be otherwise. I also have a plan on how I'm to pay back the $260 I owe to that while continuing to keep up with saving weekly, though we know how my financial plans go. Right now I'm not seeing any problems... but the key thing here is that I've GOT to control my spending. We're talking roughly $50 a week of spending money here- groceries, phone, miscellaneous expenses. Though that's after rent and the savings thing is covered. Still... I guess it's a good thing I like ramen. ^_^;;;

At any rate, if all goes to plan, I should be out of debt to the savings by the end of October, and have a decent amount of money in that account by mid November, which is kind of the point. We'll see how all that goes.

3. As an extension of the previous, I've begun contemplating some things for Christmas. I know it's kind of sick, as it's not even October yet, but if I'm going to not be completely in the red for the holidays, I need to get a bit creative here. Like burned DVD's and bookmarks and things I can do on the cheap. This is the point where I wish I was a bit more crafty.

4. Speaking of crafty, I got a shitload of scrapbook pages done on my last couple of days off. It's sort of amazing to me, because I've been not wanting to work on it for a long time now... I apparently just needed a change in projects. So I'm taking a break from the senior scrapbook (yes, I know I graduated in 2002, shush.) to work on my Edgefest album (which is almost finished), and hopefully when I go back to the other one, I'll be refreshed enough to work on it without wanting to quit and do something else immediately.

5. Work has just been... drama. I work with five year olds. >_< That's a story that I'll maybe save for another time, because this entry is long enough as it is already. Just... yeah. Five year olds.

I need to get something to eat and get in the shower and all that good stuff before work, so I will see you guys later and stop boring you all to death. :P Hopefully it won't be another month before posting?

Yep, a [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  guessing post! (It's a bit late this time because I'm a tool.) So for anybody who's new to the game, here's how this works. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  is a guess the writer challenge for the Hikaru no Go fandom. You read the fics here, and if you think you know which fic(s) I wrote, you can make a guess here. If you guess right, you can ask for a drabble from me~ (I reserve the right to ask for a different prompt if it's too brainbreaky.)

So make a guess and put a prompt with your guess in case you're right. If you need any clues, my writing archive is at [livejournal.com profile] vfic83  (er... most... of my writing is there, minus a few things I think. I'm not quite up to date on that journal. ^_^;;;). One guess per player! Comments will be screened in order to not spoil guessing for everyone. Have fun! :D


(Exempt this round are the modlies, for obvious reasons, Shan because it would be cheating, and Fei.)

1. Caught up with Tales of the Abyss, finally. Now I just have to wait for the last episode to be subbed. *sigh* I was hoping to get it done tonight, but alas...

2. Also found the first four episodes of Chi's Sweet Home 2. It's still cute, though I don't like the new opening song. Can we have the old one back? T_T

3. My body hates me. I'm now officially a cycle late, and today was day 3 of cramps out of nowhere. >_< BAH. I usually only get those the first day, so I don't know what that's about. I'm 25... shouldn't my period have stopped being all multiple personality on me by now? At least I know I'm definitely not pregnant...

4. I have a bunny for [livejournal.com profile] blind_go . Well, sort of. It's a baby bunny. Like this:

    

No idea what direction this is going in, though. It could very well implode on itself. *sigh* Still. It's something! *cheers, works on putting a music playlist together for inspiration~*

5. Speaking of writing, Ai linked this and I think it's totally worth sharing: WRITER'S QUEST!

6. I am...... not resisting the urge to write an RP application for Inui from Prince of Tennis. I'm NOT. <_< Especially when I owe a bunch of tags as it is. >_>

Shoot me now. *headdesk*

7. Work has been fun. So fun I don't even want to talk about it. *groan* One of these days I'll make a giant TL;DR post about it. Maybe. Might just as easily decide it's not worth the effort. -_-

Ooookay, it's been a while since I wrote last. Yes, I'm still alive. I'm just... easily distracted by shiny, as you should all know by now. XDDD

1. It's SPRING! *cheers* It gives me the urge to open windows and do some cleaning, but I most likely won't. Well. Definitely not today, anyway, no time. ^_^;;; Maybe Tuesday?

2. This cold just does not want to go away. GAH. It's not anything major, just a sore throat, but it's annoying and makes me not feel my best. GO AWAY, DAMN YOU!

3. I have yet to start either of the fandom challenges I signed up for. *headdesk* Fail.

4. Suikoden has eaten my brain. More fail. ^_^;;;

5. I think I need to revisit Hikaru no Go canon. My characterizations lately are feeling....  I don't know. Completely not right. Maybe it's just me though, who knows.

6. I thought I had a lot to say, but I'm not thinking of any of it now. Meh. Though my mother just came in here bitching about how I need to do this and that before work, when I really don't have time to deal with one of them. You'd think she'd be able to figure that out, since I have to leave in about... 50 minutes? >_<


In any event, I've got to go get ready for work. Fun stuff!

I'm waiting for laundry to finish and I'm bored, so how about another entry so you guys are bored too?

1. Good thing: My federal income tax refund got deposited into my account yesterday! \o/ So..... dropped a check in the mail for the bigger of the two hospital bills I still have. Which is the vast majority of my refund, and then the rest plus the state will go toward the other bill (but not pay it off completely). *sigh* This whole being an adult thing kind of blows. I mean... yeah, I could've gotten a computer with that money, sure. That's what I -wanted- to do. But this hospital thing has been a thorn in my side and a source of MAJOR worry from the start, and having one less thing to worry about plus the other nearly half paid off? Is a good thing. I'm already breathing a little easier, and that, to me, is worth not getting a computer right now. Plus? Once all this is over? I can start saving for one. *_*

2. Get to go in an hour early both Saturday and Sunday. *siiiiiiiiiiiiigh* I was told yesterday that Jeremy's "feeling better but he still tires easily, so we need you here early both days." ........................................................... I'm going to try really, really hard not to punch this kid tomorrow. He has a freaking COLD. Yeah, it sucks, but DEAL WITH IT. The rest of us have to. After Sunday, though, I'm not doing anymore favors, I don't care. So you guys shouldn't have to listen to me bitch about this anymore. ^_^;;; On the upside.... yay bigger paycheck?

3. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  chat tonight~ I won't be there till after work obviously, but there should still be people there when I get home. :D YAY

............whoops, gotta go. See you guys later! <3

**EDIT** Turns out I don't have to go in early. Mr. Bossman said they'd be okay for an hour both days. SCORE! :D
verloren1983: (Go Fuck Yourself)
1. Boo for having to work on my day off. Granted, it's only five to ten, but still. Kind of the last thing I need right now, especially with me getting sick again (fevers are fun, yay -_-). And while I understand that Jeremy's sick (which is why I have to go in), it sort of irritates me at the same time. I'm glad he has the luxury of being out for a week plus when I've been sick for over three weeks now and haven't been able to take a single sick day, and actually end up working more because he's out. To that degree? My sympathy is severely limited. *sigh* ......................................... god, I'm jealous of a high school kid, what the hell is wrong with me?

2. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go : Still thinking about it. Probably going to end up signing up and then failing. ^_^;;;

3. Suikoden: Tierkreis in a week! SO EXCITED! I'm so, so thrilled that a Suikoden game is going to be on the DS. It's like....... one of my all time favorite video game series. Whether this game sucks or not is a different matter, but still. (I'm disappointed that Viki isn't going to appear in this game. She's annoying, but that Blinking Mirror of hers is a freaking LIFESAVER. Wonder if they'll have another character doing the "zipping you off to places you've already been minus the travel time" thing?) The online bit is cool, but honestly I don't know how much I'm going to use that, considering how my computer is. ^_^;;; We'll see. Either way.... you guys probably won't be seeing much of me for a while starting next Tuesday. Depends on how long it takes for the "ZOMGSHINYNEWGAME!!!!" reaction to wear off. XD

Yes, I have it pre-ordered, and yes, I'm an immense dork. This should surprise no one.

4. Co-workers have been driving me up the WALL lately. Particularly this one guy in Pharmacy who thinks it's beneath him to write rain checks. Twice now he's come up to me when I'm trying to do ten thousand things at once, asking me to write a rain check for someone. Because "it's not what he went to school for!!" ...............................................................................................SOMEBODY in Pharmacy should be able to write a fucking rain check. IT'S NOT EXACTLY ROCKET SCIENCE, GUYS! Not to mention that both times, it ended up being an item that we couldn't write one for to begin with. But of course, checking that the item is actually the one on sale or isn't clearance is too difficult, because they didn't go to school for that, either. What am I thinking?

......there's a lot of rage there, clearly. I need a vacation. Hahahahaha. And now that I've had lunch (fries and clams, nomnomnom), I should probably get in the shower and start getting ready for work. *sigh*

Dramadramadrama. *sigh* I hate drama. So why does nearly everyone around me in real life insist on creating it?

In related news, Christmas has been postponed again. End of January now. At this point I'd say fuck it, why don't we just not do it, except that I've already purchased a bunch of stuff. Most of which I really wouldn't have bought for myself. Little snag there. So I have this Saturday off, and I'm going to have to spend it with my mother. Ugh. And then when we actually do the present thing, we're going to have to do it before I go to work, since there's no way in HELL I can get another Saturday off so soon. Meh. Lovely.

Need to try and scrounge up some guesses for bg. Ugh. I don't feel like it, I'm all crampy, which of course means I don't feel like doing much of -anything-. *sigh* Speaking of which, reveals are tonight, so anybody who wanted to go make a guess for me, find my guessing post! It shouldn't be too hard, I'm just too lazy to link to it right now. XD

So I finished Natsume (though apparently there's going to be a season two, dunno if I'm going to watch that. Season one stands alone well as it is), and am now watching Nabari no Ou. I... don't know what to think so far. ^_^;;; AND SEASON TWO OF JUNJOU IS ALMOST DONE, SADNESS! We can hope for a season three? :D

Oh, Fei, in case I miss you- have to go to work at 2 today, so leaving early obviously. And before you ask, no, this does not mean that I get to leave early. Sorry. I'll see you later?

Even if I still suck epically at wrapping. One of these days, I'm seriously going to go through with my threat to just throw everything in a big gift bag and go "Here." XD

1. [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  reveals are up. The verdict? 0/7. I fail at guessing. Didn't help that I waited until the last minute despite my best intentions, and some of them were completely and utterly random. Plus I hadn't finished reading fic yet. XD Whoops? Traditional aftermath post will be up... er... eventually. ^_^;;;

2. At my sister's for a few days, because mom is driving me NUTS. We went out to dinner to celebrate Erin's one year anniversary of her gastric bypass surgery (Olive Garden, yum~), then off to the Cheesecake Factory for dessert. I'd never been there- I'm not all that fond of cheesecake, to be honest. I hate the taste of cream cheese. Blech. In any event, this was good... but not worth the $7.50 plus tax they charge for ONE PIECE. I was all O_O at that. Good, but not that good. Jeez.

3. By the way, how the hell did I miss that Brisingr was released? We were in Walmart last night after dinner and everything, and I happened to see it. Cue Ver expression going to "O_O!!!" Needless to say, I had to get it. And they had the first volume of the Fruits Basket manga, so I picked that up as well. This is in addition to the movies and stuff I got the day before (Sleeping Beauty, The Sword in the Stone, and a cheap fantasy set which included The Canterville Ghost and Merlin's Apprentice.) ......yes, I'm clearly ten years old, shut up. XD

4. Check up with the doctor officially in three days. I'm nervous and I don't even know why. Probably... mostly because I'm not sure what he's going to SAY. I'm honestly not sure whether or not I'm ready to go back to work, physically. The thought of all the running around I normally do is... well, daunting right now. Not to mention all the heavy shit I have to lift. And yet... mom is driving me nuts, and mentally, I'm more than ready to go back. It's just the physical part I'm not so sure about. And so... it scares me a little that he might go, "You can go back to work tomorrow!" ....that would suck, hardcore. I certainly can't deny the possibility. Oh, and there's the part where he's probably going to remove stitches. *wince* Not looking forward to THAT, let me tell you.

5. On the upside, I've gotten a bunch done while I've been out. I have a nice long to do list sitting on my computer that's over halfway done. (Consider that I always put way more than is physically possible on my lists...) SCORE!

6. Chi's Sweet Home is officially done, finished watching that a couple of days ago. *sigh* Sadness. I really hope they decide to do another season.

....I'm going to go spend some time with my sister, so I'll talk to you guys later~

1. Is it just me or is the rich text editor tab thingie in the post entry page gone? Did I miss a memo there? Perfectly possible, of course, I was just wondering why all of a sudden there's only an option for HTML.

2. While I'm stuck home for right now, I'm not really on the computer a lot, as the recliner chair in the living room is the most comfortable place for me to be right now. Even when I am awake, which, let's be honest, isn't happening much recently. *shifty eyes* However... I did finish The World Ends With You today. The basic storyline, not the extra stuff, I'm going to work on that. Good to know the half hour or so I have between the time I take meds to the time I crash is good for something. ^_^;;;; Anyway, it's a good game, even if I have lingering questions that are apparently going to be answered by going through the extra stuff. You know, later. Next up: Try to catch up on some reading, and then maybe pull out another DS/GBA game to work on. I'm thinking either Phantom Hourglass, Partners in Time, or FFVI. Haven't decided which yet.

3. Need to try to finish reading BG and make some guesses. Should probably start that soon, actually, since there's the whole "sitting down at the computer for an extended period of time doesn't exactly make my stomach very happy" thing, so I'll have to do that in shifts. Meh. Other plans for computer time: anime and rp~

Speaking of BG, I have one correct guess (and no, I'm not telling you who pinned me)... no other takers? And no, Sherri, you can not guess, that's cheating. XDDD

4. Received a get well card in the mail from Scott and his wife. It was a sweet thought (even if Sue probably made him do it XD), and I suppose it makes up for a little bit of how he was acting before. A little. He was still an asshole. But this at least takes the edge off the anger.

5. Subrosa- so not happening unless a miracle fairy comes down to save my sorry ass. I'm not even awake half the day, much less coherent enough to write. (Then again, the fic can't get much worse....) I've got a basic concept, it's just something that needs to be developed. EXECUTION. Really... the concepts have been halfway decent recently (Er.. well, for me, anyway. I'm considering something resembling plot to be "halfway decent" here. ^_^;;;;). It's the execution that sucks, and I'm not really sure why that's happening.

...hell, I can't think about that right now. *yawns* Think I'm going to pass out for a while. ^_^;;;

Round 6 of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go is up. Against my better judgement, as per usual, here is the guessing post. You guys know what to do. Guess here (include a prompt- very important!)- everything will be screened of course, and if you're right you get a drabble from me. Keep in mind that there is no guaranteed time you'll actually get the drabble- hell, I still owe some stuff from round 3. Also, I reserve the right to ask for another prompt if the one you give is too brain breaking. ^_^;;;
