...you know, I keep trying to post more, and I'll type something up, but then I don't post it and I wait so long that I have to rewrite half of it because it's no longer valid. Whoops. XD

Blah blah blah )

So basically, things are generally going pretty well at the moment. I'll probably be singing another tune in a month when I'm trying to write four different research papers, but eh. XD

☁ LJ: You suck. Just saying. FB seems to be having issues as well. The latter I don't care so much about, but LJ being down for two days is a giant pain in the ass. Grrr.

☁ My hands have been a bit dry the last week or so, which isn't normal for me. I think it's the heat, which finally broke, but it's been SO terribly hot here- pushing 100 (that's 37.8 for you celcius using folks). I know that's not that much for this time of year in some places, but in upstate NY, that's INSANELY HOT. The heat's supposed to come back later this week though, yaaaaaay. -_- At any rate, I grabbed a little tube of cocoa butter, so hopefully that will help. And hopefully I can ignore the fact that the smell of the stuff reminds me of a bad summer job I had right after high school. Whoops.

☁ I seem to have lost my keys. I have my spare set, so it's not like I'm locked out of anything, but it's still not good. When I came home from work yesterday I realized I didn't have them, but I can't find them at work, either. I hope I didn't drop them somewhere, but that's looking more and more likely. UGH. >_<

☁ For anybody that didn't hear, Borders is closing ALL of their stores now. I can't say that it's a surprise at this point, but it DOES suck. I mean... that's half the reason to go to the mall by me- and it's the only bookstore there. So much for my entertainment while Kelly spends ages in Victoria Secret. Boo. On that note, though, I should probably try to get over there tomorrow (*cough* later today *cough*) to see what they have left as far as clearance stuff... may be able to score some deals. If not, well, at least I tried. Might check out jewelry because I'm CONSTANTLY losing earrings or having them fall apart on me. There's also a new store that had some really cool looking dreamcatchers. The only potential problem there is. Um. Reaching them. Because I'm a midget. <_< And I hate hate HATE asking for help for things like that. Meh. We'll see.

☁ Had a song ping me, so I'm writing a little bit again. It sucks, but it's something. Also I finished making up the rest of the 101 in 1001 list that starts on the 30th. Hopefully this time I'll do more of the list. ^_^;;;

Weight related, cut for those not interested. XD )

☁ Suikoden:
Short this time, I've still been procrastinating finishing it. )

☁ Hello all! It is officially D-day and everything is done that can really be done at this point, so I'm sitting at the library on my laptop, which is kind of strange. Something new and different. Also it's closer than  I thought- somehow I made the library out to be this epic journey in my head and it's actually like 10-15 minutes walking, which is nothing. Good to know. Of course, I owe them money from YEARS ago, so I can't take anything home with me, but yanno. It's a nice change of pace. And it gets me the hell out of the house, which is even better. Should've maybe grabbed a couple of movies before I left, though. Oh well.

So basically, this is the plan for today- hang out at the library until the main office closes at 5. Considering my book addiction and that I have my laptop, that's absolutely not going to be a problem except for my current lack of sleep. I have a sandwich and water in my backpack for later, too. :D I don't want to be there for the inspection. I work retail in this neighborhood, yo. I don't need things getting awkward if the person coming in turns out to be a regular, or they randomly come into the store to get something or whatever. You know? It's not my name on the lease, I don't need to be there. I don't want my face associated with the damn mess, especially if things go badly. I don't think it will- Kelly and I did an AWESOME job, if I do say so myself. It's not perfect, but it's clean, except for my mom's room, which is at least somewhat improved. And I think that's what they're looking for- that it's reasonably clean and nothing's a fire hazard. Basically that the place is LIVEABLE. Kelly and I have achieved that. We're still clutterbugs, but there's no helping that. Hopefully they'll look over my mother's room. Even on the offchance that they don't, I know that I've done everything I possibly could in this situation. If there's an eviction, there's nothing I could've done to prevent it. Anyway, whatever, it should be fine, but still. Don't want to be there when it all goes down. I'll probably write a quick note later letting you guys know what's happening and that will hopefully be the last thing you hear about this. YAY. Hell, I'm not going to know what to do with myself now. FREE TIME. IMAGINE THAT.

☁ Just for the record, library internet isn't as bad as you would think, but not as good as I'd hoped. As in, I can read my friends list on LJ, but I can't click on anything. Though DW doesn't seem to be having that issue, so maybe it's LJ. It would figure. Nothing I've tried so far has been blocked either, but I haven't been doing much.

☁ In other news, last night I totally slammed the pad of my thumb in the crease of a folding door hard enough to give myself a blood blister. I may have yelled a string of obscenities. Ow. ;~;

☁ Note to self: the Dunkin Donuts frozen hot chocolate is very yummy (it's chocolatey and a little malty and totally delicious). However, unless they suddenly come out with a kiddie size or something, it's not a good idea. The small is still huge enough to give you a stomachache. :/

☁ In America's quest to fry EVERYTHING, they've now come up with fried Kool-Aid. Yes, I'm serious. I wish I was kidding. Sounds absolutely disgusting. Though it's been brought to my attention that there's fried Coke, too. Eugh. Who EATS this shit?

Okay. This is long enough, and I need to find something to keep me awake for the next almost five hours. Later! \o

☁ Is it just me or is LJ being really super slow today?

☁ I was remixed for Remix Madness. TWICE. They are also both better than the original fics, which is both thrilling and terrifying at the same time. So. We have Natural (The 'People Put Their Mouths There?!' Remix) and Dignity, or Lack Thereof (The Everybody Loses Remix). Both are awesome. I sadly didn't write anything for it because I've been trying to BG and failing as it is, so. Heh. ^_^;;;

☁ A word of advice: don't be an asshole to the person developing your pictures. There was this guy yesterday that insisted on using the hour machine even though he wanted his prints ZOMGRITENAO, as opposed to the instant machine that I was trying to steer him to- and then had a cow because I kept emphasizing HOUR MACHINE. "But you can do them in ten minutes!" Um, it depends on how many pictures you've got, size, and the orders that are in front of you (because obviously if I have 500 pictures that are printing for someone else, you're gonna be waiting a while. Doesn't matter if you 'only have one.' Nothing I can do about that.) And, yes, how much of a dick you are to me. If you're a gigantic asshole? You better believe I'm going to make you wait the whole hour even if you have one 4 inch print (takes about five minutes if there's nothing else in queue). DO NOT FUCK WITH ME.

He kept arguing with me about how long HE thought it should take. So guess who got to wait the whole god damned hour for his 20-something pictures? >D

(I'd like to point out here that it is well within my right to tell him the extra time. Part of my job is time management and making sure that things are done when I tell the customer that they'll be done. Expecting him to wait an hour for prints when he used the machine that is clearly labeled as a "one hour" machine is certainly not unreasonable- and in fact if I had reason, like the previous 500 print example, I could've pushed it back further. If he hadn't been an asshole, I probably would've told him 20 minutes. Getting pics printed and packaged takes extra time when it's just me, myself, and I manning the entire front store. ^_^;;; But then, since he WAS a dick, he probably would've had a cow about the 20 minutes, too.)

☁ Got invited to a walking/running 5k in June that's part of the local Pride thing. I haven't decided whether I'm going to go or not. On one hand, it would be cool, especially since I didn't end up doing the April 5k. On the other hand, I'd have to get up at 6:30am at the absolute latest to take the bus, and that STILL wouldn't get me to registration on time (it's the earliest bus, btw). I don't think I have to be there exactly at 8 though. Or I'd have to call a cab and spend god knows how much for a ride downtown. I don't know. I have a couple of weeks to decide, registration is due at the end of the month.

The parade and PrideFest are the following day... I've always wanted to go and have never been able to because I always find out about the dates too late to ask for it off... I don't know how comfortable I am going to all of that by myself though. It's not like I can beg Erin to go with me. :/ But I dunno, I still want to. It's kind of pathetic that I've never been. And at least that way I don't have to worry about losing anybody and I can take my time doing whatever I feel like. I think my biggest concern is getting lost- I have a TERRIBLE sense of direction. I could probably get lost in a paper bag. But... I could probably just print off a map and the bus schedules I would need. Worst case scenario, I have my cell phone and I call a cab to go home. Right? Could be fun. I'm actually kind of reminded of a LOLcat pic here. ^_^;;;

☁ Watching Shuffle, which a coworker keeps suggesting to me. I'm four episodes into it. It's... pretty much a typical harem type anime? The main guy is kind of a dick and I'm really trying to figure out why in hell he's got all these girls in love with him... but again, that's typical of that genre. It has its moments, though. I also watched a few episodes of the new My Little Pony show for reasons I have yet to figure out. It is, frighteningly enough, not completely terrible. O_o So we shall see.

Now. Off to make the lasagna I've been putting off for weeks because I'm lazy, WRITE, clean, at some point check whatever homework I've accumulated while I haven't been paying attention to it (ugh, this online thing is SO not working for me so far), watch some more stuff, and maybe go for a walk later if I'm feeling up to that. Since I really need to start doing that again. Oh, and I need to go to the store because apparently the second bag of broccoli I bought for previously mentioned lasagna has conveniently disappeared. And apparently the tomato sauce as well. *GROWL* Salady things probably wouldn't hurt either. Mmm. Leaves. :3
verloren1983: (fma: to new adventures!)
Don't mind me, I'm just testing to see how this whole crossposting thing works. ^_^;;;

And NO, I'm NOT moving to DW... but it occurred to me that I have accounts EVERYWHERE as backups, so I should probably start, yanno, actually using them. Since DW is likely where most of fandom would go should anything happen to LJ, DW it is. Totally have to get more icons on this thing... it only allows for FIFTEEN. SOB.

That being said, here I have a fic comm instead of a fic journal. It even has a better name- [community profile] without_the_rain . There's nothing there yet, but... details. XD (Also, I wouldn't suggest joining that, because it won't let me backdate in a comm- which means that when I catch that up, there's going to be a CRAPLOAD of stuff flooding the comm. I'll let you guys know when that's good to go.)

Edit: I am a moron, apparently. Editing this to see if it works right in LJ now.

☁ Hikago peeps- don't forget about [livejournal.com profile] blind_go  sign ups! They end TODAY, so if you were planning on signing up and haven't yet, go ahead and do it! Also remember the support thread too, even if you're not writing this time around. Readers are totally awesome too. :D

☁ LJ: FAIL. I know it's not their fault, really, but that doesn't make the recent issues any less ANNOYING AS HELL. I guess it really makes you realize how much time you spend on a site when it's down, though. I've been kind of left going, "Er, now what?" a lot of the time since this whole thing started. XD Oh, and is it just me that's still having problems? LJ still won't load half the time. :/

☁ Totally getting sick, I can feel it in the back of my nose and throat. I know I'm due for it, but. DO NOT WANT!

☁ I got my replacement mastercard in the mail today. Yaaaay. Though I still have yet to get a bill from March. I don't know whether that's something I should be worrying about yet. <_<

☁ My workplace has decided to change weekly paychecks into biweekly paychecks over the summer. Which, quite honestly, BLOWS. They're giving us all this bullshit about how it doesn't affect how much money we get... yeah, actually, it does. Bigger paychecks mean that more money gets taken out in taxes. So effectively, it affects us like a paycut. This in addition to the fact that insurance is going up again this year. Thanks, guys. Really. Not to mention that the first week without a paycheck is going to hit hard financially- especially since the way they have it planned, we'll only get paid for a partial week. Do they not realize that when they pay their employees like shit, said employees can't afford to last two weeks on half a week's pay? Apparently not. Bastards.

☁ Because EVERYONE IRL seems to be doing this to me lately: Why is it that people don't get that if I have headphones on, I AM NOT INTERESTED IN CONVERSATION? Seriously, how hard is that to figure out? I am clearly listening to music/ watching something/ avoiding talking to you. Unless there's some kind of emergency, go away. Jeez.

☁ Apparently brand for Greek yogurt matters? I didn't know that until I ended up trying a new one when the store didn't have what I usually get. Oh. My. Freaking. GOD. Apparently, Stonyfield > Yoplait > Chobani, at least to me. I don't know if it's the organic thing or what, but that shit is AWESOME. Especially since Yoplait recently changed theirs, so it's not as good as it was. Biggest problem is that it's also expensive- $2 for a small container. Ugh. Figures.

Also food related- note to self, the cheese pizza lean pockets aren't bad. Hmm.

☁ It occurred to me today that I didn't have a playlist for smutting- just something generic to help with the writing process. Huh. Lish wanted me to post it (and there's a few suggestions from her on here too), so here you go. Just remember that some of these are random. And actually, there's a couple I don't even like but acquired somehow. XD Also, I haven't used this yet. So. I make no claims as to how well this helps. If anybody happens to have any other suggestions, let me know. :D

This is totally longer than I thought it would be. XD )

- Messed around with my profile, because it's been bugging me for a while now. It's still too long, because it's me and I never shut up, but it's actually... kind of organized now. O_o

- I can haz gift fic~ The prompt actually came from a conversation we'd had about how friendship would just sneak up on Akira and Hikaru- all of a sudden Waya would make a comment about them being friends or something, and Hikaru would be all "Wait, what?" So yeah. Secret friends fic. <3

- Some drama with LJ randomly deciding it didn't like my credit card anymore (boo), but it's all better now. Yay.

- God, I really need to start walking again. The small amount of endurance I'd built up is completely SHOT now. Before, I'd started running a little bit on the way to work- not a lot, but a little. I tried that today, and god, I made it about five seconds before my body started doing that "Hey, you'd better stop, moron" warning thing. And my legs ACHED for the rest of my walk to work. Ugh. That's just pathetic, especially if I'm going to be even WALKING a 5k next month.

(Oops, gotta go, I'll see you guys later.)

...holy crap, didn't I post anything before this? Oh, right, I lost it after lappy decided to overheat. Bah.>_< So let's run through some stuff, yeah?

☁Regarding LJ's recent fail: FAIL, LJ. COMPLETE FAIL. This kind of goes without saying, and I don't think anybody would actually be dumb enough to do this, but if anybody does the facebook/twitter link thing to anything on my journal- public or locked- you'll find yourself off my friendslist. Yes, I have a few LJ people on Facebook, but overall, these circles are separate FOR A REASON- just like I don't have my LJ linked to my facebook for a reason. I complain about people on my facebook here WAAAAY too much to want them to actually know about my LJ, okay?

☁FFXIII- Kait talked me through Odin and so I'm unstuck, at... Palompolum now. Am hating Hope a little less. Kind of wanted him to kill Snow. Need to play that more. :/

☁Work driving me crazy. I really, really need a vacation. So badly it hurts. Doesn't help that I've been totally exhausted lately, I'm getting over a cold, so... yeah. Fun stuff. Of course, that's also why I haven't really written lately... ^_^;;;

☁Have glasses. They're less rectangular looking than I remember them being, which is good. It's also totally possible that I just wasn't SEEING them correctly originally. XD Either way, they're not bad, and I have some sunglass clippies for them, which is awesome. Especially since when the sun sets at work, the light is directly in my face. People look at me weird for having sunglasses on for that little bit, but hey, I'm rocking it. :P

☁Still doing the maintaining thing weight-wise, but I've been snacking way too much lately even when I'm already full. I'm trying to curb this- I bought a shiny new electric toothbrush today, and when I feel I'm done eating for the day, I'm going to brush my teeth and hopefully that will keep me from running to get a snack every five minutes because my teeth are nice and *~clean~*. It's been working for a good 3 hours now, so... ^_^

☁Plane tickets are purchased- I'll definitely be going to Texas in October~ I even bought a new bathing suit for the occasion. The good news is that it's a 12-14 and it FITS! \o/ The bad news is that it doesn't fit my boobs. Not even close. D: So... I'll keep it and maybe it'll fit next year. Right? :D In the meantime... I guess I need to find another suit. I'm hoping I can find the one I had before so I can at least see if that still fits, but so far it's not turning up.

.......and clearly I need to go to bed if I'm misspelling words like "occasion". *stares at self*

1. Well today was rather productive on the Christmas front. I went out with Stef and did some shopping- including getting some super cute cards for 3 bucks (yay), some ornaments for my little tree, a kit to make bath salts and fizzies, and stickers. Yay stickers. Plus I got a hell of a deal on some 12x12 frames, which I was thinking about getting anyway. So when I saw Michael's had them 2/$9? *grabby hands* All in all, I'm quite happy with myself. I did well. And I -so- want to play with that bath fizzy kit. XDDD

2. Speaking of cards, a quick reminder, for anybody that wants a Christmas card, the sign-up post is here. I know it feels early, but being that some of these go rather far, I'm probably going to send them out the first week of December or so.

3. Just noticed the new profiles. ^_^;;; Actually, I kind of like it. The stats are really cool. And holy crap, this entry will make #720. O_o Okay, that's not a lot compared to some of you (*cough*Ai*cough*), but it SOUNDS like a lot. At least to me it does. XD I will have to do something special when I hit 1k, I think. I'll... possibly think about that, though it's more likely that I'll forget.

4. On a completely different note, today is Veteran's Day. It never really held a lot of significance in my family, actually, which is surprising- both my grandfather and my great grandfather on my mother's side were in the military (WWII and WWI, respectively), and my dad was in the National Guard when I was a kid. Plus my cousin Joey is in the military now. It just... I don't know. It's not something I'm ashamed of or anything, and I have great respect for people that choose to go that path (hell, I never could), but it's just... not something I think about very often.

All due respect goes out to the veterans today that have served us, and the same to anyone currently in the military (mixed in with a fair bit of sympathy XD). We would be lost without you, literally.

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. ^_^;;;

1. As far as the state of my body... my back is feeling better. Not 100% by any means, but I no longer feel like I'm going to die from pain. That's a good thing, right? ^_^;;; And I still have no idea what's going on with the rest of it.

2. It figures that when I need to be recording for [profile] ihikago, Kelly decides she's going to start sleeping in the bedroom again after sleeping in the living room for MONTHS. -_- That's just my life, I guess. XD

3. Need to get in the shower. Ugh. But I'm still craving Chinese food really badly and haven't had it, so I want to go get some. ^_^ Also... I'm thinking about a trip to the bad place. XD I've now lost count of how many times people have talked to me about DDR... I'm thinking maybe I should check it out? Of course, the problem with this is that I'd need the pad and the game. Meh. We'll see how much it is and go from there- if Game Crazy even has both. I can always get it online too, if I have to, but I figure while I'm going over that way anyway, I might as well look. ^_^

4. New layout for spring. Still the Expressive style, which I happen to really like, but much brighter. ^_^ The only thing I don't like is that it turns out I can't change the color of that damn yellow bar on the sticky post. ajkldjsakl. *stares at it* Well........ I suppose it isn't THAT bad. At least it's not pink. XD

5. I think I have an idea for [community profile] blind_go, possibly. Problem is... it seems like a drabbly thing and NOT at least 500 words worth. Dammit.

6. *blinks* Why do I have separate tags for "games" and "gaming"??? Okay, yeah, random, but still. O_o

1. Guh. Somebody keep me away from photoshop, honestly. >_< On the upside, I've gotten a decent dent in the pile of icons I've been wanting to redo. XDDD

2. [community profile] blind_go round 5 sign ups are up... shoot me. I just hope to hell that I get some idea at some point, because... right now I have nothing. XDDD

3. I think it's about time to get the IJ writing comm up to date. With all the stuff happening on LJ right now.... god. I don't know how much longer we can continue to do this.

4. On that note, I will be participating in the strike. For me, that's the 20th and 21st, 8pm-8pm. You won't see me, period. Of course, I'll be available on AIM when I'm not at work, if anyone needs to get a hold of me. Or there's e-mail. Or you're just going to have to wait. And... because I have serious issues with photoshop at the moment, I made a banner and icon. XDDD I know someone else could definitely do better, but... yeah. They get the point across, ne?

If anyone wants to steal (ha ha ha), that's fine, just credit me please~. ^_^ Also, I have a slower moving version of the icon if anyone wants. And the banner is in GIF, but I also have it prepared in PNG and JPEG. ^_^;;;;;;;;;;; (I... did mention I have a problem, right? XD)

*Speaking of credit, the icon textures come from bombay101 on DeviantArt.*

**EDIT** I'd like to point out that this, for me, is NOT about the basic accounts. I don't give a flying fuck about that. Ads? Yes, annoying (hence why I chose a basic account for the writing journal when I had the option), but it's not the end of the world. Deal with it. This is a BUSINESS- and they've got to make money somehow, so I understand why they would do that purely from a financial standpoint. No, this isn't whining about the damn basic accounts. This is...  about their apparent lack of respect for the users in general, and the homophobia they've demonstrated. A strike... is not anything horrifically drastic. It's not like I'm leaving. It's not like I'm canceling my paid account (because sadly, I've tried that and I'm too in love with my ten bazillion icons to go down to six.... er... fifteen, sorry. XD).... for me, it's just saying "Hey. I'm important, you know? And what I bring to LJ is important, at least it is to me, and you guys being assholes? NOT COOL."

Oh. And the people that are all "zomg livejournal has been taken over by the mob!" and all of this anti-Russian bullshit......... cut it out and grow the fuck up. HONESTLY.

Er.... yes, more spam, because I'm bored and there's no one to entertain me. XD

I just came to the rather horrific realization that [profile] ihikago is due in a month. Which, okay, sounds like a lot, but it's really not. I at least have "Heat" recorded (it just needs editing- joining and deleting the dead air and whatnot)... but then there's One Thing (wicked long), Reflections By the Koi Pond (definitely need to have a functioning brain for that one)... and possibly Digital Fusion, but we'll see what happens there. And I'm such a freaking perfectionist that I'll spend ages on one section, because I stumbled over one word and therefore have to record that section again. >_< Guh.

In other news... I found my green Irish shirt that I'd been looking for, for St. Patrick's Day on Monday. ^_^ I also found my "Take care of your pussy" t-shirt that I hadn't seen in ages, which, okay, sounds weird but trust me it's cute. XD And some other stuff that was like... "Wow, where the hell has THIS been?"

Which brings me to my decision that I'm going to try to clean my room (closet not included, because that's just... a whole other issue. XD) by the time I go on my next trip. For those of you keeping track, that would be May 18. Now... the chances of this actually happening are about slim and nill, but I can pretend, right?

Yay. My computer's been dragging ass the last few days, but Norton's just did a system scan and it's better now. ^_^

Man. All kinds of crap going down on LJ right now. I'm... I don't know. Thinking it might be a good idea to back up my journals again. I did it during Strikethrough in a fit of paranoia...  but that was what, almost a year ago? (Holy crap. XD) ......and I can't find that program. Dammit. I must've saved it to the hard drive of the broken computer. >_< Anybody know what I'm talking about? It didn't require you to use LJ's backup system, and it saved everything (I want to say it was sort of like a PDF file, but not), including comments. Help?

**EDIT** I found the site. It's a web based program, which would explain why I couldn't find it on my external hard drive. For future reference (because I'm sure to forget later), it's LJBook.

New layout for the writing journal. I'm still fooling around with some different layouts for this journal, though... sorry for anybody who's looked at this. I know my journal's changed several times and I think I'm done for right now. ^_^;;; I'm just sick of looking at the same damn thing all the time, you know? Time for a change. New year, new journal... or something like that, anyway. XD

*looks at the tag cloud thing* I should really start using tags for things. XDDD Like, more than once every five thousand entries. I'm not going to go through everything, but I've edited the tags on some entries, so it's not quite so bad now. Whee!

Yay for working where I do. I made a couple of photobooks for people- so Christmas for Erin is done aside from stocking stuffers, and I was even nice and made one for my mother (*cough*becauseIhadacouponforafreeone*cough*)... they look nice. ^_^ And they're not that expensive either, which... is definitely a good thing. XD

Ugh. My brain is no longer working. I'll... try to write something later. Maybe. I owe comments and stuff first. Definitely. >_<

-I ended up putting an Adult Concepts filter on the writing journal. Even though it's on a friends only basis anyway, and I don't believe there's anyone under 14 on that list so it doesn't really affect anyone anyway (at least, I hope to hell there's not)... it just makes me feel better. XD

-Ugh. Fell asleep on the couch for a few hours and just now woke up. Which means, quite effectively, that I didn't do laundry. No laundry=no clean clothes for work. Fail fail fail. Maybe I can get up early and do a few things at least, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

-Went out to the Chinese buffet with Mom for lunch today. Which is unimportant, really, but they were giving out these wall scrolls along with the bill, right? So we took it home, and I opened the box when we got there because I was curious...

...It's a half naked woman. XD Beautiful, I'll give them that, but it's nothing I can actually hang up on my wall or anything. Go figure. I just started laughing when I unrolled it, seriously.

-Random: Apparently Ryoma from PoT is bigger than Kaga from Hikago. *blinks* I dunno, ask Akichan. Or, more accurately, ask girl!Ed (FMA), as she's been with both of them and she's the one who made the observation in the first place. XD It amuses me greatly. My absolute first thought when she came out with that in RP was "Oh my god, Kaga would DIE if he knew." However, he still holds the record in this particular RP for most climaxes given in one session, so he can kinda shut up about that. XDDD

-Finally gave in and turned the heat on in my room, because it was freaking freezing in here and I couldn't take it anymore. Now it's all nice and comfortable. ^_^

-Another meme. Here we go:

I've changed my mind, at least as far as the fic journal goes. All of my mutual friends on on this journal have already been put onto my flist on that journal, so none of you guys have to worry about that (if you have multiple LJ accounts- I've got you under the one friended on THIS journal, or the one I know you by- like [profile] room101 and [personal profile] ai_ling). So if you got friended by [profile] vfic83 , that's me. It's not a creepy stalker or anything- just me saying, "You're okay to read this." But [profile] vfic83 is officially going friends only for right now. I'm sure that I'm overreacting... but better safe than sorry, right? God, I really hate this. There's a reason my fic has never been flocked before now, you know? I LIKE that random people can read it without having to friend me. And I really love LJ and I don't want to have to leave... T_T 

God, this is a giant PAIN IN THE ASS! The writing journal isn't a paid one, so I have to flock every single individual entry... and my computer is acting up at the moment, or LJ is acting up at the moment (take your pick, it could be either one). GAH. Fucking hell. Okay, so EVENTUALLY I'll finish this. XD 

Also just created an account at Greatest Journal (same username) and a community for the writing. There's nothing on either of them, and I don't plan on using them unless my journal(s) here get deleted, but they're there, at any rate. So ignore the OD thing from earlier and just assume that I'll head over to GJ if anything happens.

I keep waiting to wake up and have this be just a dream...

verloren1983: (Harry/Draco)
Waiting... why is it that it feels like I'm always fucking waiting for something? Anything? Everything? Right now it's a cd I'm burning and the clothes in the washer, in general it's for my life to kick into gear... but it's always SOMETHING. Why is that?

I just now noticed that there's a little line on top of the entry box that says "Autosaved draft at..." and then updates itself every ten seconds. Is that new, or am I really that oblivious to have never noticed that before?

Found yet another good Harry/Draco fic today (well, good so far, anyway)... I've really got to stop this. The pairing is really starting to become an obsession, and... JKR is never going to make it happen except for maybe in an alternate universe, and I'll just be disappointed when Harry and Ginny get married and have a gazillion babies, even though I knew it was coming. Kinda like how I was pissed that Lupin is with Tonks even though I was convinced that he and Sirius were together all through the fifth book (maybe the fourth too, who knows). *Kicks self* Maybe I should just get back into my little Suikoden Tir/Gremio thing and just forget about the other. Maybe. It'd be a lot easier if Harry and Draco weren't so fucking perfect together. Grrr. *Kicks self again*

My CD is finally done, so maybe I'll go read or something. I still have another hour and ten minutes roughly for my clothes, so yeah... should go do something.

  • March 1 (last I heard, anyway)- Kingdom Hearts II -

I'm so anxious to get this. Seriously. I've been waiting for this ever since I bought the first one.

  • March 7- Goblet of Fire released on video (US only) -

YAY! It seems awfully soon, but hey, I'm not going to complain. The best part is that this is on a Tuesday, so I have the day off. You know where Stef and I are going to be once she gets out of classes... (as in, at Wal-mart buying copies, and then back to my house to watch it yet again)

  • March 15- Fall Out Boy is playing at a local arena -

Since Kelly's birthday is five days after the concert, and since we both like the band... I got tickets today. *squee* The seats... okay, they're... nosebleed section, but it's also just about a month before the concert, and it's a popular band, so... I'll take what I can get :) All in all, I didn't think it was bad- tickets were $24 each, and then there was $18 in fees, so $66 total. And add $20 or so for the Goblet of Fire DVD, and that's Kelly's birthday... coolness. Only thing I have to figure out is how we're going to get there : /

I'm thinking about getting a LJ subscription, but I'm not convinced it would be worth it. If anyone reads this that has one, could you let me know whether you think it's worth the money?

Do you have any idea how unnerving it is to wander into someone's online journal, only to realize that it's actually someone you KNEW when you were growing up? *shudder* I'm half tempted to go over and say hi, but then again... maybe not. The less people I subject to my incessant ramblings, the better. Besides- it's like "Yeah, I'm 22 and I work in a dead end retail job and I still live with my mother." That's real impressive. Granted, I'm only living with my mother BECAUSE I have a dead end retail job that pays shit and therefore can't afford my own place, and I do pay a fair portion of the bills, but still. That's just going to bring the thought to mind "Well... that's... pretty pathetic." Ugh. I don't even know why I give a damn about what anybody else thinks, but I do. I don't think anybody is even aware of how much it kills me to admit that.

You know... I never REALLY realized how much of a coward I am until yesterday. Well, I mean, I knew, but I hadn't thought it was quite as bad as it really is. Kelly mentioned yesterday that she's thinking about getting a Myspace account and I completely freaking FLIPPED OUT. Not at her (of course), but as soon as she left the room I did a complete edit of my profile/journal on that site, making sure to delete anything that referred to my sexuality in any shape or form. Hence... my return to Livejournal after almost a year of yet again forgetting I even had the stupid thing. I need to journal, because I'm like that, but I need a SAFE place to journal where my nosy little sister can't find it. OpenDiary is pain in the ass (not to mention they got hackers a while back and lost several months worth of people's journaling... so let's just say I don't trust that site too much anymore), so Live Journal it is. Of course, I have the attention span of a two year old, so... we'll see how long that lasts. Overall... I'm so incredibly ashamed of myself for selling out like that. And it leaves me wondering- what am I so afraid of? It's not like Kelly would be surprised if I came out to her. I mean, the kid has asked me on several occasions if I was gay. Her homophobe idiot boyfriend has strongly suspected for a long time, and he's the one that originally brought my kind of obvious gayness to Kelly's attention *coughITTAKESONETOKNOWONEcough*. Mom suspects I think. No, I know she does. And I really don't see my extended family too much, so even though it would kind of hurt if they rejected me, it would be okay. The only person I'm really sorta worried about is Rodney, my cousin Mary's husband. I'm not sure how he'd react. Especially considering that he has two little girls (nine and five), and some people have the very wrong idea that gay people molest children. (Okay, I'm sure some of them do, just like some straight people do it, but that's a very small minority and I would never ever touch a child. Period.) Or maybe I'm just being paranoid. My point is, I'm not really sure why I'm okay telling everybody BUT Kelly and my mom. While I'm figuring that out, I guess I'm just going to have to deal with being a paranoid nitwit.

I got my hair cut on Saturday and I completely hate it. It's entirely too short- but then again, my hair grows fast so in a couple of weeks it'll be fine. It's all good.

In other news, I found my bank card... underneath a bag of clothes in my room that I haven't moved in over a month. ?? No idea how that happened. Oh, and I finally got my W-2's in the mail... all I need now is the bank statement on my interest for the year and I'm all set to do my taxes. I should get a nice juicy check this year... ~hello~ x-box, new clothes, and a mattress that doesn't try to pierce me to death!

Alright, I'm just going to go away now. Until next time!
