NaBloPoMo Day 2

Hello again! For those of you not on my f-list, I'm attempting to do NaBloPoMo again. I'm taking a little bit of a different approach this time, though, in that I'm doing a 30 day picture meme. Some of them won't be new pictures just because of the nature of the thing and because I'm lazy, but whatever. Some entries will be f-locked because they show either me or other people in my life and yeah, I'd rather not go there, but most will be open. So anyway, moving on.


This awesome shirt and some jeans. ^_^

Okay, first things first- I did post something yesterday. It wasn't for NaBloPoMo like I've been doing, I forgot to do that, but I did post something privately, and that's what counts to me. I'm not doing it for a prize or anything, just for me, so basically you're just going to have to trust me. ^_~ Actually, for the curious, it was fic. I've been doing that lately- when I'm too lazy to go get my flash drive, I'll put stuff on livejournal so I can access it from a different computer later, edit it as I please, come back home and have the latest version right there for me. It's usually fic, but sometimes school stuff- I have notes on William Faulkner for short story, for example. Which I need to stop doing, really, because my LJ is getting ridiculous with all this extra stuff. Anyway. So what's up there for yesterday is actually the fic I ended up finishing off and posting today. Yes, I finished fic! Amazing, right? It's not the best thing I've ever written, that's for damn sure, but it's something. It even works for [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo , which I've been neglecting and just realized that it's due at the end of December. Whoops. ^_^;;;

Not a whole lot happened today, just art history, short story, and pride alliance. Only one person showed up to pride alliance that wasn't in the executive committee. Which makes me nervous because we have the information table for Transgender Day of Remembrance next week. Sigh. Oh, and Treasurer and Co-Chair fought for half of it. They butt heads, because they're both attention whores that can't shut up. It was a long meeting. -_- At least Secretary wasn't there. He's a nice enough kid, don't get me wrong- he has Asperger's, and I think he has a mild mental retardation on top of that. So he just talks A LOT, and very loudly, and takes ages making any sort of point (if there even is one), and I just... does it make me a terrible person to admit that I don't have the patience for that? I think it does. XD I could never be a special ed teacher. I have all the respect in the world for that, but I just can't deal. Ungh. Oh, and have I mentioned that we keep getting kicked out of our club room by another club? The other advisor is SUPER RUDE and is always like, "We've been in this room for 20 years! blahblahblah." Yeah, well, they didn't reserve the room, so it's ours this year. Go away. Only problem is that OUR advisor is never there when this goes down, so we always end up folding, because what else are we supposed to do when this woman is being a complete bitch to us? It's going to be a looooooooong year, you guys.

I'm so tired. Definitely have to go to bed earlier than I did last night- I did laundry yesterday and my clothes just didn't want to dry, so I ended up going to bed around 1am. Waaaaaay too late for me. I'm a zombie. x_x

Yes, I forgot about the entry again today, how could you tell? XD

-Obviously, internet has returned as of very late last night. I kind of thought it would end up like that, buuuuut better safe than sorry, right? Or something like that. Of course, it would help tremendously if I wouldn't blank on doing online stuff.

-While I did go get my school check yesterday, I didn't go to the bank this morning in favor of sitting in bed reading. Whoops. XD

-Also, I would really appreciate it if the muses would actually stick around long enough for me to finish a story before switching around on me. I've had Kaga in my head, which is great for something I already had in the queue. Today? Waya shoved him out of the way. -_- I'm like, HELL, you guys, seriously? And of course the Waya bunny is something I've been sitting on and haven't started yet. This is one of the many reasons I can never finish anything, ugh.

-Persona 4 is still pissing me off. I worked on a boss for an hour, was ALMOST done with him, and he killed me. Ungh. I actually threw the controller in a minor temper tantrum. ^_^; (There's a rug in the living room, the controller is fine.) I ended up going, fine, screw you, I'm going to work on social link stuff then. And I did. I may or may not work on it tomorrow, I don't know, I'm getting pretty :/ about the whole thing, to be honest.

Aaaaand I have to wrap this up. Tomorrow! \o

NaBloPoMo Day 9

-There was no internet at home when I left this morning, so I'm going to do this post now, since I don't know what's going to be happening with that. I'm not sure what's going to happen over the weekend, either. I may have to make a couple of voice posts. Do you think those will count for NaBloPoMo? I mean, it's still posting, right? Just me talking at you nonsensically in voice form instead of written form. XD That's only on LJ though, so I dunno. I may have to update via my cell phone browser, which could get tricky. We'll see, I guess. (Basically, what I'm telling you guys is that if you don't see any posts on DW over the weekend, go check out LJ for voice posts, and I'll backdate posts here to link over later. XD)

-Need to go over and get my second reimbursement check, too, so I can put that in my savings account tomorrow. Saturday's really the only day I can go to the bank, sooooooooo yeah. I'll do that after I'm done with this. ^_^

-Today hasn't been so bad though, with the exception this morning. I woke up at 6:38- which is the EXACT time my bus shows up at the stop. -_- Ugh. So needless to say, I missed Math this morning. I was like, seriously, self? It couldn't have been 6:20? I could've made that! Funny though, how I have perfect attendance in everything BUT this math class. This is the only time I've missed class because I overslept, though. First time, I was just dragging and made it to the stop like two minutes late. Second time, I couldn't find my keys- and of course, without my keys, I'm not getting in the house, so I had to have those. And now today. I guess the good thing with it being Friday is that I can make her office hours on Monday- which is the only weekday I don't have math- and catch up on what I missed. So I won't have to sit there at the next class going, "buh?"

-Uhhhhh what else.... I'm coming up with a big goose egg here. Not a whole lot happening, besides school work, pride alliance stuff (which is mostly just an exercise in frustration, tbh- I can't STAND any of my fellow executive committee members XDDD), and hating Persona 4 with a passion. ...okay, okay, plot stuff is fine, and even social link stuff is fine. It's the dungeons. I'm always dying, and it's just... ugh. I'm not even really under-leveled- I checked. I just don't understand why this game is kicking my ass so badly. Ironically, the bosses are fine, it's the regular shadows that are making me want to throw things. Go figure.

Okay, now that I've had this sitting here for an hour and a half while I'm waiting for my Sociology class (it's still about an hour from now), I should probably go get that check and maybe try and snag a corner in the library so I can write for a while. Maybe. We'll see how that goes. My energy levels are still not quite what they should be, plus it's Friday, so I'm like XP at this point. Okay, okay, going. I'll see you guys in some form or other this weekend. \o

I really should be sleeping. Whoops. XD

Went out with Stef today, which was nice since I haven't seen her in a while. So we had lunch and went shopping. I spent entirely too much money. (Okay, it really wasn't THAT bad, but still.) It was cool though, regardless. I did at least stop myself from getting some squishy yarn- since I wouldn't use it for anything, I just like to dig my fingers into it. It takes my brain to a happy place, okay? Sometimes I swear I was a cat in a former life. XDDD

Also I watched the movie Shelter (very cute gay movie) today and loved it. I rec it highly. <3

Yes, clearly I was productive today. And now I sleep. Maybe. I'm in the middle of another movie, so who knows. XD

(Maaaaan this is why I don't write very often anymore, I have NOTHING TO SAY.)

Okay, I did not forget about posting this time, I swear. I just got distracted because Kelly wanted directions, but she was looking at me like I had five heads when I gave them to her. So I ended up having to draw her a map with arrows and a stick person and ridiculousness and bleh. Have I ever mentioned I suck at drawing?

Basically I've spent the day vegging. I did go out and get kitty food earlier, and I made an updated NaBloPoMo icon and wrote a teeny bit, but that's really the only productive thing I've done. Tomorrow I need to actually like... do work. XD

Interesting things:
-Apparently there are talks of a Boy Meets World sequel featuring Cory and Topanga's daughter. I don't know how to feel about this yet. :/
-Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour tonight! I would love to say that it means an extra hour of sleep, but it probably means I'll be up at 7:30am instead of 8:30am like usual on weekends. XD
-So while I was vegging, I watched my first Studio Ghibli film- because apparently not having seen any is some kind of crime against humanity or something like that. Which was... Howl's Moving Castle. Honestly? It wasn't horrible or anything, but it did confuse the hell out of me at some points. Like why do they keep messing with Sophie's age? Isn't she cursed to be old? Why does it keep changing? MAKE UP YOUR FREAKING MIND. Also, I'm really not clear on what the point was of leaving the castle and letting it fall apart if they were just going to go back inside and have Cal move it again. What the hell? Sooooo I would try another movie, but I dunno, this didn't make a whole lot of sense to me.

Alright, that's enough for the time being. Tomorrow! \o

I did NOT forget about posting again. <_<

....somehow I feel like this is going to be a pattern. XD

So today was actually not that bad. I had a test in Sociology, but it was no big deal at all- since most of us were sitting there before the start of class, he handed out tests early, and it only took a couple of minutes- note that on test days, when you're done with the test, you leave. The class starts at 3. I was literally done and on my way out the door at 2:58, no lie. So I was able to get home around 4:30 instead of the usual 5:30 for Fridays, which was pretty nice. :D

Also, I get the most awful bunnies on the bus. Just saying.

I feel like there was something else to talk about, but I'm toast at this point, so I will try and remember tomorrow. :P Night all!

No, I did not forget about NaBloPoMo and almost fail before I started. Nope.

*shifty eyes*

Alright, alright, fine. :P But it's just after 11pm here, so we're golden, as long as I don't take too long to write this.

I guess I should talk about Hurricane Sandy, but there's really not much to talk about. It didn't really affect us here that much- we got some rain, and some nasty wind, but that's about it. Not a big deal locally. Other parts of NY though, not so lucky. Here, though, we didn't even lose power. Not that I'm complaining, I'm grateful. So. No worries here, guys, everything is a-okay.

Not much else has been happening since I last wrote. School work. I'm pretty sure I managed to lose my English Comp folder somewhere (unless it's hiding from me, which I admit is possible, but unlikely at this point.) Not ZOMGTERRIBLE, but still a pain in the ass and severely annoying. Trying to save Rise's ass in Persona 4 and not get my own handed to me at the same time. Speaking of P4, I sat down and watched the "true ending" episode and am thoroughly confused by it. I probably should've watched the anime again first. Meh. I don't think I mentioned, but I got my first school check, so that's in my savings account, which is nice. Uhhhhhhh.

(Sorry, I could probably be more interesting, but I've been up since 5:30am, didn't get home until 8:30pm, plus had a unit test in math first thing this morning. I am -FRIED-. Did I mention that my math skills are sloooooow and I have yet to actually COMPLETE a unit test for that class? At least I knew what I was doing this time, I just didn't have the extra 30-45 minutes I really needed to finish. XD)

Oh, there is something! Cut for cycle talk )

Aaaaand I should probably just post this before it gets any later. See you tomorrow! :D

Yeah, I screwed up NaBloPoMo already, I just realized around 2 that it was past midnight and I hadn't done a blog. Whoops. I was doing okay when I was posting after midnight for the day, but when I wasn't doing that, it was much more difficult. Damn my late hours. >_< On the upside, at least it's not like a couple of years ago when I got within a few days of the end I think and failed. ^_^;;;

Everybody seems to be doing maintenance tonight. LJ is 4-6am, and Spark went at 11pm and will apparently be going till 7am. I should probably use the time to try to catch up on watching some things (or, you know, writing an e-mail *nervous cough*), but we'll see. I'm kind of tired, may go to bed early.

Part of the reason I'm tired is that I seem to be sleeping like crap lately, but the other reason is that I had to work on Tuesday, which is normally a day off for me. I don't mind doing it to an extent- it's not like I'm picking up an extra shift this week so a coworker can screw around or anything, my immediate supervisor's father is dying so of course we shuffled things around so Scott could be with him- it just kind of sucks. Especially since I could sleep as late as I wanted today and of course I woke up before I normally do. Without an alarm clock. And couldn't get back to sleep. ARGH.

Sims 3 did a bunch of updates the last time I played- one of them being that when creating female Sims, you can change the size of the Sim's breasts. This amuses me to no end. I've already made a Ver-Sim with a chest size that actually reflects reality... it remains to be seen whether this is a good thing or not. I wonder if other Sims respond, positively or negatively, to breast size? I haven't seen anything so far either way, but I'll admit I haven't played with it much either. Hmm.

I keep thinking there was other stuff to say, but this has been sitting here for over 45 minutes now. Probably time to just post the stupid thing. XD

Day 9. How do you get ideas for your characters? Describe the process of creating them.

I wouldn't say there's a singular process, really. I've said before that songs ping me for plot ideas- that applies to characters too. Like I'll get plot bunny A that involves character B and character C, but I don't really know anything about B and C at first. It's after the original bunny that I'll sit down and develop the characters, decide what their names are, their backgrounds, who they are. Even then- some of that happens as I actually write them, you know? Characters develop all the time, and sometimes they'll tell you, "Hey, I like --" and things like that. It's nice when that does happen, though. Less work for me. ^_^;;;

...yeah, I just realized I completely blanked on doing the AC for SW. I've been really out of it since I went on vacation and I'm not sure why. Meh. Maybe that means I should be done and not reapp. My activity has dwindled down to nothing again anyway. *sigh* I don't know, maybe I don't have the patience to really be active in an LJ RP for an extended period without someone making me. This is the second time that there's been a major issue with my activity, so as much as I love everyone there, I really need to decide whether I'm going to continue to do this to everyone. :/

That being said, let's get down to business- the meme question for the day!

Day 8. What’s your favorite genre to write? To read?

My original writing tends to fall in the YA category. There's a couple in fantasy, one mystery-ish, and several that could be labeled GBLTQ if you wanted to go there. I wouldn't say that there's a favorite genre that I like to write, really, it's just... wherever the plot bunnies happen to take me, you know?

Reading, though, mystery and fantasy are definitely favorites. I'll grant you that not even close to half of my books are actually on my bookshelf (too many, sob), but what is there? Probably about 75% fantasy. I don't have nearly enough mystery, but I'm slowly working on it, and I do have some. I love things in the GBLTQ area of things, too. Especially the teen stuff and the gay male smutty ones. Yeah, I don't know either.

Day 7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

Assuming I'm at home, yes, I generally listen to music. I try to have a playlist put together that reflects the character I'm writing or the mood I'm trying to set. If I'm looking for something more generic, classical is a nice thing to have in the background. Music is just... it helps me write, it helps with IDEAS to write about. Music pings me so hard for bunnies it's not even funny... whether it's original or fanfiction. If I'm having a hard time coming up with something, usually listening to some music helps.

As far as specific songs, it's honestly been a long time for many of them and I don't remember. Brian is definitely "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, I'm not even sure how that happened. I have a couple of boys who I think about any time either "Face Down" by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus or "Do You Remember" by The Summer Obsession come up. Other than that, I can't really think of anything at the moment.

Day 6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

Hmm. Well, that depends. I mean, where I'm most comfortable physically is on my couch with a laptop in the middle of the night, but that's not a guarantee that I'll be able to write. Often it's at work when I have no time and I'm trying to scribble down bits of dialogue on a scrap of paper. Or I'm out, so I'm typing stuff into my phone and everybody thinks I'm crazy. But those situations certainly aren't comfortable. I write more under pressure, it seems. (Of course, "more" and "better" are two different things altogether as well.) Ideally, I'm physically comfortable, so that means my couch. I write anytime the mood strikes, which can literally be ANY time, but I prefer to sit down with things at night when no one else is around. No interruptions, no people asking what you're doing and trying to look over your shoulder. And computer versus pen and paper? That really just depends on my mood. Having a cursor blink at you in a word processing program is just as intimidating as a blank page, so, you know, it doesn't really matter either way. I usually use a computer if I can simply because it makes any editing a whole lot easier.

Could've sworn I posted this last night, but apparently not. Whoops! ^_^;;; At least it's before midnight, right?

Day 5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?

By age, it's going to be Brian and crew. They're at the onset. However, they're also (minus Brian) the oldest  MAIN characters, because I have them at a few different ages in my head: 12, 13, 15, and then again at 28. If that makes any sense.

As far as when I created them... youngest would be Lauren, who's in actuality 13. Oldest would be... people I don't even remember, I'm sure, but the ones I remember are from that Civil War story I told you about in one of the other meme questions. ^_^;;;

Day 4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!

Well, I already told you about my first story... I don't think it was my FIRST story, but it was the first one I remember, and that's what counts. So I guess I'll tell you about one of my first characters. Brian happens to be part of a story that I've re-imagined AT LEAST four times, and so he's changed quite a bit since the beginning. At first he was modeled after a crush I'd had at the time (three guesses as to what the main female character was like? XDDD), but he's grown very much beyond that. In one memorable soap opera reincarnation, he was blind, and then ended up getting some random cancer and dying. doesn't really get much better for him in subsequent versions, though. Brian is just one of those characters that I seem to love to torture. Now he's extremely depressed to the point of being suicidal. Cheery, huh? He's a really good kid that has a horrific thing happen to him and it totally tears his life to shreds, and he never quite gets it back together again. He's also one of my few completely straight male major characters, so that makes him special on its own. :P

Day 3. How do you come up with names for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

Depends on the story, depends on the character. If it's fantasy, sometimes I'll keymash and see if I can pick out anything decipherable, otherwise I'll just make things up. Same thing for the fictional places. In other stories... things like location and era matter, so those will go into consideration. As far as present day names, though, I'll usually just pull up a baby names site and pick something I like the sound of. Sometimes I take meaning into account also.

Sorry, nothing too interesting today. This question on its own is kind of a dud. ^_^;;;

NaBloPoMo Day Two

Day 2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?

I love Ai's answer for this- it's completely perfect. I honestly don't have a lot more to say on the matter besides what she said, but I'll try. If we're talking just major characters, discounting anyone in the background or that shows up only once, counting gets a little easier. What I can come up with off the top of my head is in the ballpark of 30 or so, and I'm completely positive I'm missing a bunch, not including the minor ones I left out on purpose. As a writer, you have certain things in your arsenal. There's the physical, obviously- pen, paper, computer, thesaurus, dictionary, research materials, possibly a desk- but there's the arsenal in your head, too. Vocabulary, random plot bunnies hopping around, spelling, grammar, and yes... characters. Characters are the singular most important thing in a story, I think. More often than not, it's the characters that determine what happens. Even if your piece is plot-driven and not character-driven, your characters will still make decisions about how to react to the events that are happening, and it's not always what you expect. Despite being figments of your own imagination, they can surprise even the writer if they're developed enough. I know a lot of us, especially in roleplay, refer to our characters as "muses", but there's really some truth to that. It's like they develop minds of their own. They become real, almost, even if they're still in your head. I've had characters outright refuse to do something that I wanted them to do, for whatever reason. I suppose this is how I know whether I'm being true to their character or not, but it's certainly not something a non-writer could possibly understand. One of my older sister's exes told me once that it seemed like most writers have some degree or other of multiple personality disorder. I disagree, though I see his point. Either way, you still have all of these people, other personalities, floating around in your head all the time, and they're not always quiet. I think most people would fail to see the difference between the two.

As far as males versus females, I think they're just about equal, with maybe a slight preference toward males. There's plenty of gay people of both genders,  and there's even a MtF trans person in there (and yes, she was trans WAAAY before I started reading Hourou Musuko, if anyone asks. XD). So I'd like to think there's a decent amount of gender and sexuality equality in there for the most part.

I should really do an update-y post, and I will do that at some point, but first things first- I've decided I'm attempting National Blog Posting Month this year. To help with this, I'm snitching that writing meme that [ profile] februaryfour  has been doing- this will give me something to post every day, so I won't have to be scrambling trying to think of something to write about before midnight. That being said, this meme seems to be focused on original writing, so that's what I'm going to talk about. If you don't care, well... skip these, yeah?

Day 1: Tell us about your favourite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.

Hmm. I'm not big on creating new universes- as much as I love to read fantasy, I feel like I'm not equipped to write it. Fantasy requires a lot of epic, detailed description because it's a foreign world and your words are acting as the reader's eyes, and description has ALWAYS been a weak point for me in original fiction. I always feel like I'm overdoing it, I guess, and it gets awkward. No one wants that.

That being said, I've tried on a couple of occasions to make something work. One is so undeveloped it never even got a name, but the other was Nihdon (don't ask where the name came from, I have no idea, this was back in middle school. On a side note, Google informs me that "Nihon" means "the sun's origin" in Japanese. Interesting!). As with most fantasy novels, it was a world with magic and I grew rather fond of it. If only the plot wasn't so... predictable. XD

As far as projects go, there will always be a special place in my heart for the first story I ever finished- actually, the only story I've ever finished- which I don't remember the name of and the notebook sadly got lost somewhere along the line. It was probably horrible and horrifically inaccurate. It was a Civil War thing, based on this teenage girl that had fallen in love with one of the slaves her father owned. I don't remember the girl's name, but the boy's name was James. Which should probably tell you exactly how much I cared about Whatshername. Anyway, her father went off to fight in the war, when it was starting to look bad for the South, and James ran away shortly thereafter. Whatshername eventually found a new boy, Alex, which her twin Tom wasn't too happy with. He was kind of overprotective, and kind of an ass, and pretty violent sometimes. In other words, he was fun to write. I won't bore you with any more details, especially since I don't remember a whole lot more of it, but yeah. I was 12 at the time and I'm fully aware of how soap opera like my stories got at that age. I'm never going to try re-writing it, but it'll always be special to me.

2. Happy belated Thanksgiving to those who celebrated it. I worked. XD Which wasn't so bad, just really boring since the lab is down at the moment, so I had nothing to do all day. But I did get to go home a little early? Since there was nothing for me to do anyway, Steve was like, "You can go home if you want." .......okay! XD So I got to leave about 45 minutes early. Woot! Not that it was a huge deal as far as dinner, because we'd ordered out to a diner that was still open (chicken parm, yummy~)

6. My older sister, my mom, and my aunt have apparently decided that we're going to do Christmas mid-January. O_o For a day that I work, so I "have" to ask for it off. Erm. What the hell. Thanks for asking.

Meep, have to go. Later~

Shit shit shit I have like five minutes because I completely forgot about this. D: Especially since I just had to listen to my mother bitch for ten minutes. Okay. Technically I posted. :P

Today was a good day, though, overall. Went to the mall and did some shopping, got some things done. And I started working on my Christmas cards. Yayz!

..........meep gotta post this. Will probably be more elaborate for tomorrow's post. Later~

1. Reminder: Christmas Cards. If you want one, respond here, please. ^_^ I will probably be sending those out in about a week if all goes well, and I'm not going to make more than one trip for this, so if you want a card make sure that you comment there with your info before then! Man, I so need to work on those... ^_^;;; I'll have to do that over the next couple of days.

2. No extra day off. Kerry said that Mary couldn't take my shift, and since I was only doing her a favor in the first place, I'm just going to work my shift as scheduled. *shrug* Would've been nice, but it's not a terribly big deal. I guess that means I should, you know, make some attempt at waking up here?

3. Finished the Death Note anime last night. The end is... slightly better in the anime, but not a lot, and in general it's still very OOC. I still love Near, though. <333

And now it's on to something else! I'm not completely sure what yet, though I have suggestions from people. ^_^;;; I'll probably end up doing Planetes next, since I know that's less serious and I could use that after DN. With a side of still trying to work on Elfen Lied occasionally. XDDD

I should probably get in the shower soon and get it over with so I'm not walking to work with wet hair in the cold. ^_^;;; Mrrrrrrrr, don't wanna.

...shit, my mom just beat me in there. Dammit. I guess I'll figure out food in the meantime. Later!

I have to make this quick, since I have to go to work soon. At any rate...

1. Work last night was fun. Spent most of the night working on this stupid fucking project that the assistant manager wanted me to do, and I -still- ended up taking it home. Guh. It was putting pictures onto this digital alarm clock thingie, which involved installing this shitty software. For some reason it refused to work on the computer at work. Meh. Still took me about 45 minutes once I got it home. On the upside, I got it done and over with and said shitty software is removed, so there's that.

2. Sleeeeeeeepy. -_- Don't know why I'm so tired. Meh.

3. I may end up with an extra day off this week. Basically, a coworker begged me to let her take my Monday shift. And since Thankgiving is this week and my holiday pay will cover the extra day (plus there's a couple of people who work Mondays that I'd really rather not have to deal with XD)... I said okay. The big boss man may not allow it, which is why I say that I might end up with an extra day, but we'll see. If I end up having the day off I might go to the mall or something. XD

4. Almost done with the Death Note anime~ I have four more episodes to watch tonight when I get home and then I'm done and can move on to something else. Yay!

.....oookay, I have to go. See you guys later!

1. I may have completely blown my Christmas budget the other day. On the other hand, I'd completely forgotten about getting holiday pay for Veteran's Day, plus I gave myself some wiggle room to begin with. So! It should be fine. ^_^;;; And it was for a good cause. I told you guys that my sisters and I are getting our picture taken in probably a couple of weeks, right? So I was thinking... I was planning on getting those sisters necklaces anyway...  and granted, I was planning on getting mine after Christmas, but then I realized with the extra pay, I could get all three and not totally break the bank, and that way I can give them early and we could wear them in the picture! ^_^ Since they should be here soon.

...if this picture thing ends up being expensive, I'm totally screwed.

2. I don't think I ever told you guys (except a few people in chat), so I'll post it here for amusement- I got mistaken for a high schooler recently. My mom, Kelly, and I went to Denny's the other day. At one point the waitress goes, "Do you go to --- high school?" Looking at me. I was kind of like O_o. In the end I told her no, and after she went away I was flailing. I'm 25 years old! Kelly's like, "Well, you could pass for a senior. Maybe." ........O_O (I don't actually believe that, but anyway...) Wow. Just wow.


4. Kelly apparently wants to talk to Akichan about something. Before Christmas. Which she won't tell me. O_o It apparently has nothing to do with coordinating things for Christmas, because I told her explicitly that Akichan and I aren't doing anything for Christmas (yet... but she doesn't need to know that :3). But she has a question involving me and it's something good. I guess. She won't tell me what it is, in any event. It has Akichan all freaked out. XD She's like, "Are you sure she doesn't know? O_O" Well, Kelly still thinks I'm straight, so you tell me. Besides. Kelly wouldn't call that "something good." I'm sure it'll be fine, and it's probably something stupid, knowing Kelly. XD

5. ...what happened to finishing the Death Note anime like... Wednesday? <_< And I still have 11 episodes left. XD On that note... damn, they make you watch the L thing twice. Once when it happens and then the next episode in the recap. Daaaaaaaaamn. T_T I love L too much to watch this twice. And I still hate the second opening, by the way.

I should just post this before firefox crashes yet again. Later~

1. Didn't end up watching any Death Note last night in favor of trying to clear off my desk. It had gotten really, really bad, I can't even tell you. It's not completely done because I'm lazy, but... I found chocolate. :3 And a floppy disk with a ridiculous picture of a former coworker that I'm thinking of putting on his facebook. He'd... kind of kill me, though, but it might be worth it? XDDD

2. I'm down to one pair of decent work pants. Crapcrapcrap.

3. So apparently I'm not getting the GameCube for Kelly. Which to a point is okay, because it was probably going to put me over budget anyway with games and whatever. Besides, while there's a few games on the GameCube I think she'd like, I'm not convinced it's worth the money. No, I am apparently going the more practical route. She doesn't have any space for all her DVD's- neither do I, but that's beside the point- so I got her a shelving unit for those. Only 30 bucks. So I could still get her other stuff too. Like more DVD's. XDDD And games for her DS or something. really know that you and your siblings are adults when you give FURNITURE as a gift. *headdesk* Strange for me, I'm always the dvd-game-electronic gadget gift giver type. (What, I'm a geek, shaddap. It's what I know. XD)

Also got a top and sweater for this dreaded picture we're taking. Yes, it was my idea originally to have a picture taken of the three of us, but Erin wants it professionally done, and we're trying to coordinate it somehow, and I don't own anything in the green/red family. *sigh* It's spiraled completely out of my control. Anyway, I found this gray v neck sweater that could pass for silver, and Stef helped me find a green tank top with tiny silver dots on it to go underneath. And I can just wear jeans or whatever with it, and silver earrings. Total Christmas picture outfit? $17. I didn't think it was bad. Though I would've gotten a pair of WORK PANTS had I realized I only have one now. XDDD

4. I totally did not oversleep by accident and make it a really close call for doing laundry. <_< Speaking of which, I have to go put those in the dryer now, and then find something to eat. Later~ <3

Today was fairly productive. Got some Christmas things, so that was good. Spent too much money but it wasn't anything I wasn't really planning on, so it's okay. XD

Still working on Death Note. And I'm trying to clean my desk. It's a vast improvement at least, so I can't complain too much.

Aaaaand Kelly's talking at me and I can't concentrate, and this has to go up like NOW. So... I'm just going to shut up. Till tomorrow!

3. Mom really needs to go to work already, I'm starving and I want to go get Chinese. :3

4. Started working on a "public" page at myanimelist. I figure it's probably about time. Mainly, I've cut out things that involve shoujo-ai/yuri or excessive nudity (in other words, most of the yaoi on my list. And Elfen Lied. XD) I've left a few of the more innocent shounen-ai things, like Gravitation. Junjou Romantica is about the most graphic on the list. I figure this way... it's easier to make recs to Stef, because she can look at what I've seen, what I've rated it, and go from there. Though I wouldn't rec Loveless to her but it ended up on the list anyway, because she knows about it. I've flailed about it in the store enough times when Barnes and Noble didn't have the next volume YET AGAIN. XD Then again, I've also TOLD her that I wouldn't rec that series to her, so she knows better.

5. Death Note- I think I can finish that off in the next couple of days, since I have off. I think. Also, the second opening song has kicked Zombie-Loan out of the "worst opening song ever" slot in my mind. It's waaaaaay worse than the Zombie-Loan one, and ZL was really bad. XD I think I hate the new song about as much as I loved the old one. <_<

6. Tales of the Abyss- AJDKSLJDKSLA I KNEW IT! I'd guessed two things about particular characters and I was right on both counts. I kind of didn't want to be in Van's case though? <_< And OHMYGODLUKE. >_< IDIOT. Why can't he be all cute like in the opening? Of course, he doesn't SPEAK in the opening, so that's probably a lot of it. XD

2. Last night was interesting- there was a fire in my apartment complex. O_o In my section, but the opposite end, and luckily it was stopped before it got that far. As it is, 8 apartments were damaged, and they said 4 were a total loss. All because one of the tenants had a grease fire on their stove. *headdesk* People are so stupid. At least no one was hurt, that's the good thing. And also, selfishly, that it wasn't me and everything was settled by the time I got out of work. ^_^;;; Okay, I'm horrible. XD

3. Work was busy, but tolerable. Though I had a customer argue with me about what season it was. *headdesk*

Customer:  Do you have snow shovels?
Me: O_o, those are seasonal, we won't be getting those for a while yet.
Customer: Seasonal?
Me: Um, yeah. We get those in winter.
Customer: But it IS winter.

Customer: *blank look* It's winter.

Customer: .....but you'll be getting them really soon, right?

Customer: *chirps happily* Okay!

.......why. Just... why. THERE'S NOT EVEN ANY SNOW YET. *flail*

Okay, I don't have much else to say, so I think I'm going to get something to eat and try to watch a couple of more episodes of Death Note before I have to go to work. I really, really need to start thinking about actual topics here so these aren't so boring. XDDD

1. I finished watching The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya last night. The pairing I'd wanted didn't happen, and I was a bit surprised at the one that did. I mean, I knew it went one way, but it was a big surprise to me that it was reciprocated. O_O (Sorry, trying to be vague in the interest of not giving the ending away to those who haven't seen it. XD) At any rate, one down!

And no, I'm not finished with Elfen Lied. I ended up not alternating them. For one, I suspect that would probably be confusing and not very good for my sanity. For another... that would require actually wanting to watch Elfen Lied. I kept going, "I should watch that........ eh, I don't feel like it." XD I'll finish it eventually. Maybe I should try and watch an episode a week or something. At least. That way it's not totally static for long periods of time. Of course, that means it would take 9 weeks before I finished it. ^_^;;; But better than nothing, I suppose.

In the meantime I've resumed Death Note after taking a break from it. I forgot how much I love that OP. <3 And God, I love L. Freaking WIN.

2. *yawn* Can I go back to sleep? No? Damn. -_-

3. Yesterday was not very much fun. Busy. And I had to install a new DVD drive in one of our digital machines, which took probably about 2 hours because taking that machine apart is a BITCH. And I had to test the drive. Oh, and Steve apparently decided that since I was taking the machine apart I clearly had nothing better to do, so he made me ring fucking back up while I was messing with the machine. >_< Getting interrupted continuously when you're trying to install delicate parts? NOT FUCKING COOL. On the upside, DVD burning works now, where it didn't before. ^_^ Also had to finish a time consuming display that they'd decided wasn't important enough for me to finish the day before, even though it HAD to get done. Oh, and there was Stephanie, who while I was trying to get said display done, was all snarky with me about two rolls of film that were processed but not printed. I was going to do them after I was finished, and they weren't due until the morning. The display was my first priority. She was all "Is there any reason these aren't done yet?", being all snotty. Fuck off. I know what I'm doing. Get your ass out of my lab and stop pawing my film. Just because you think you know what you're doing, that doesn't mean you do, so go away.

Oh, and tonight there's pretty much no one scheduled and there's no ringer at all from 9-10. FUCK.

4. On that happy note, I think I'm going to grab some food and possibly watch an episode of DN before work, though that depends on how long food takes. ^_^;;;

2. Mom is officially going to be working the evening shift starting tomorrow. *sigh*  Last night was supposed to be her last overnight, but she called in, predictably. Damn, I really don't know how they haven't fired her yet. This shift change thing... well, really sucks all around. I'm going to have to fight her over the bathroom before work since we have to go to work at the same time (though I think she'd be leaving before me, but still). I'm not going to be getting breaks from her really- when I'm home, she's home, except on our days off, which I think are out of sync. The one saving grace about all of this. Plus sometimes the router has issues and needs rebooting. The router is in her bedroom. Normally if it's when she's working I just go in her room and reset it, but if she's home, I'm out of luck until she decides to fix it. And sometimes that'll be a long time. -_-

I... don't know how this is going to work out, guys. I might end up killing her or something. XD

3. I hate my stomach. Urgh. Can the week be over yet? I'm getting a little tired of getting sick from every freaking thing I eat. T_T

4. Apparently when I calculated my Christmas spending, I miscalculated. Quite a bit. As in, the original number was right, but when I was assigning money to various places, I somehow left out $100. *blinks* Not quite sure how that happened. So! That means I can get those Sister necklaces for Erin and Kelly that I wanted to but thought I couldn't afford~! <3 Mine will have to wait until after the holidays, but that's okay. ^_^ And then all three of us will have the same piece of jewelry. <3

5. Also, for shopping... squeeit'sanAlplushie! XD Unfortunately both the Al and Roy plushies I'd want are out of stock. Well... actually, that's probably for the best, at the moment. AFTER Christmas, Ver. Or put it on your Christmas list. Which I still need to make and post to the "safe" journal. ^_^;;; Should... probably get on that... <_<

6. ZOMG. AI. I think I found those socks! Or at least a variation of them, anyway. We have them at work! They are... four dollars a pair after my discount, which makes me cringe, but I'm not finding anything cheaper online, either. I set two pairs aside last night (there are two versions, one's more furry, so I grabbed one of each. XD), I'll probably end up getting them tonight. I hope they're worth it, because man, ten bucks on two pairs of socks.... ^_^;;;

7. Ver: You clearly need to be leaving your cart at work behind the counter so your asshole coworkers don't just take it without even asking if you're using it.

I'm hesitant to join another challenge just yet. No, I'm not looking for reassurances here, I'm just stating facts. I'll think about it.

4. I haven't taken cold medicine all day today. SCORE~! Okay, so I still have a little bit of the cold I think, but it's not enough that I feel warranted medicating myself for. And I'm sure the crappy feeling is more due to the fact that my body decided to be a girl today. UGH. I hate when it does that.

5. In addition to feeling like shit, the tub is backing up. We can't get maintenance here till tomorrow. I hope to hell it's before work, but being that Mom probably won't get around to calling until late, I won't bet on it. Which means I'll have to go to work without a shower. And I already feel disgusting because of the girl thing. *cries* Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan. I really wish the people upstairs would stop throwing shit down the sink that doesn't belong there. That's what causes our tub and/or kitchen sink to back up every once in a while. Gah, plumbing. STOP THAT!

Speaking of music, I found a couple of songs on my computer that I absolutely don't remember hearing before, much less downloading. The only thing I can think of is I came across them when I was all drugged up and that's why I don't remember? XD I can't even blame it on Kelly because they're most definitely in MY music folder. <_< I mean, it's music I like, so in the end it's all good, it's just... disturbing to me, that I don't remember these AT ALL.

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. I've figured out my budget for Christmas, and I'm extremely unhappy. Considering that I usually spend at least $1,200 (because I always SAY I'm going to stick to a budget and then never do XD)... with the paychecks I have coming up before the holiday minus rent and whatnot, I have about $400 this year. *cries* This is gonna SUCK. Probably there's two things that are saving my ass with this: One, I will not be seeing Akichan for at least a few months. So I can put off getting things for her until a bit later. :P Which comes to her advantage, obviously, since I'll have more money to spend on just her. XD Two, my mother's birthday is a little less than two weeks after Christmas. So again, I can do a birthday/Christmas thing with her and put that shopping off until after the holiday. ^_^;;; I was doing some calculating based on said budget... I can make it work, but I can't get the kinds of things I can normally pull off, which sucks. But at least it's something?

2. So I'm trying to cut down the "currently watching" list as much as I can- things that are still airing will have to stay there, of course. At any rate, Elfen Lied has been on that list FOREVER, so I decided I need to finish that (partially just out of determination that I WILL finish it, since Akichan predicted I wouldn't. XD). Honestly, the only reason besides the determination thing that I'm still watching it is that Nyu is absolutely adorable, but nevermind. Oh. And Lucy having Akira's voice? Completely brainbreaking.

There's also The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya that I've been meaning to finish for a long time. So my plan? Alternate Elfen Lied with Haruhi. Temper the blood and gore with complete crack. It might work. Or it might totally fuck up my brain. Something like that.

3. I got a letter saying that the leave of absence was approved. Which is good, because that means I shouldn't lose my insurance or anything. However, they also sent a "fitness for work" form that I'm supposed to have my doctor fill out. -_- I've got to ask Kerry about that, because the form is basically the exact same thing as the doctor's note I gave him after my post-op checkup. I really don't want to have to bug them yet again about this if I don't have to.

Eight, actually, since Avatar technically isn't anime, so it's not on the anime list site. *sigh* I -did- have it down to like... three. In all fairness, two of them are still airing and I'm up to date on those. But still. Looks like I need to be watching some anime, and plugging in the other computer to let one of them finish downloading while I'm at work. XD We'll see how that goes.

On that happy note, I think I'm going to nap for an hour or so. *yawn* Later.

One week of successful posting. YAY!

1. Started watching Tales of the Abyss, at least what's been subbed so far- I like it. A little confusing in places, but that's okay. Guy is just adorable, as is Mieu. Luke irritates me, but I'm just hoping he gets better? And I really like the opening song. The only thing is, this is making me want to play the game. Which I'd have to get. :3 I... really, really shouldn't though. XD

2. I hate babysitting. Er, I mean training. <_<;;; New kid starting today, and guess who had to train him on register all day in addition to trying to get her own work done? Yeeeeeeeeeah. Not fun. And have I mentioned that there was a bunch of maintenance things that Scott didn't bother to do while I was out, so now I've got all that to catch up on as well? *headdesk* Sometimes I could really kill that man.

3. Still sick, but not feeling quite as crappy as before, which is a good thing.

...I feel like I had something else to say, but I can't remember now. My brain is mush. XD

(Phew, almost forgot to post. ^_^;;; Good thing I've been meaning to do this.)

Alright, you guys, it's getting to be that time of year again- holiday cards! I will be mailing out a card to everyone who wants one (luckily, my flist isn't very big <3), so comment here with your name and address where you want me to send the card. All comments will be screened, don't worry, so it'll just be me who sees it. I promise I'm trustworthy. And hey, if you still don't feel comfortable with that, I can probably work something out between photoshop, my scanner, and photobucket. <3 I just think real live holiday cards are so much cooler, that's all.

No one had any objections to Christmas cards last time as opposed to simply holiday cards, so I'm probably just going to do that this year, since it makes things easier. There are some new people this time around, though, so if you DO happen to have an objection, let me know, and I'll make sure you don't get a Christmas one.

And yes. Everyone. Address. Even if you think I already have it. I know at least two three (whoops) of you have moved in the last year, so just getting everybody's all in one go will make it easier for me.

So if you want a nifty holiday card, comment away! I'll get these out... ah... hopefully by the first week of December or so.

I know this is a no brainer really, but for those few of you on my flist who are actually American- GO VOTE!

I had to be up bright and early to do it, since Mom was insisting that we HAD to go right when she got out of work at 7am. Ugh. But it's done and I don't have to worry about it anymore. Now I sit back and wait for the results to come in. Hey... either way we get rid of Bush, and that's a good thing.

Kelly killed me, though. We were just talking, and she's going, "Well, Obama's mother is an illegal alien from Afghanistan!", what? She didn't seem to believe me that there was a lot of that shit going around but 99.9% of it wasn't true, including that. She was also convinced that if Obama's elected, he'll get assassinated. Possible, yes, but that's what Biden is there for. And should something happen to him, it's Nancy Pelosi. It's not like there's not a back up plan here. *headdesk* My sister, you guys... sometimes I really wonder about her.

Murphy's Law: As soon as you buy a shiny new box of cold medicine with a strong decongestant, your cold will shift so that you don't need it anymore, only you've used one dose so you can't take it back to the store.

UGH. On the upside, I can breathe. On the downside, I sound like SHIT, because my throat hurts like HELL. Also on the upside, this also means that chances are really good that this is a cold and not a dental issue, though I keep checking that area of my gumline neurotically anyway. XD

I still don't know what I'm going to do about this leave of absence form issue. *sigh* Absolutely no idea. T_T

O_O Holy shit, the right side of the tray my keyboard sits on just broke. *nearly had a heart attack* Well........ fuck. That complicates things.

**EDIT** Double shit. Not going out with Stef tomorrow because of the sick thing, so I have no way to get to the doctor's office at all. Fuckfuckfuckfuck.

**EDIT 2** GAH. MOM. COPIER =/= FAX MACHINE. PRICE CHOPPER DOES NOT HAVE ONE, SO QUIT TELLING ME TO GO THERE TO FAX OVER THE FORMS. IT WILL NOT WORK, AS THEY HAVE A COPIER, NOT A FAX MACHINE. (Nevermind, apparently you have to go to the service desk and have them do it, which I didn't know previously. I was just supposed to psychically know. Oh, and the stuffy nose is back, lovely. Not like I needed to breathe or anything.)

I'm showered and basically all ready to go to work, with the exception of getting dressed and putting a book or something in my bag to keep myself occupied during my break. Now that it's here, I'm a little nervous about going back. ^_^;;; I know there's nothing to worry about really, being away for a month doesn't change the fact that I know my job better than anyone else there... I think mostly I'm nervous about being able to keep up. People already assume I'm slow just because I'm overweight, no need to prove that assumption correct when I would normally prove it wrong. I guess we'll see how it goes. ^_^;;;

I -am- expecting to be tired and cranky when I get home, though, so fair warning, chances are I'm not going to be in the best mood. I apologize in advance if I'm bitchy to anyone. I won't mean it. <3

Man. Sitting here waiting, though, is just making me more nervous. Kinda wish it was after 2:30 so I could get dressed and everything. Maybe I should watch an episode of Chi or something.

I don't do NaNoWriMo. I just don't write at that speed, ever, and there's no way I could possibly win at it. However... I saw the thing on LJ for NaBloPoMo- even though it's an equally stupid name, it's a much more manageable concept. A blog entry a day for a month. I can do that, right? *shifty eyes* Ahhh, possibly, you guys know how I am about that stuff. More likely you'll all watch me crash and burn. At any rate, expect lots of posting from me! Even if it's mind numblingly boring! ^_^;;; Considering that I work evenings, I figure that probably the best approach will be to post before work- just to make sure I get in the post for the day and I don't have to worry about it if I end up working late or whatever. Though I suppose there's always the possibility of a voice post, that would still count...

I officially go back to work tomorrow. Thank freaking god. Of course, after a day or two back, I'll be ready to leave again, especially now that we're officially into the holiday season. UGH. I hate the holidays. Can we just skip Christmas this year? Honestly?

Though I got a random check in the mail yesterday from work. I'd thought Kerry put in the rest of my sick time in a couple of weeks ago, but apparently not, as it was a check for a little over 10 hours of sicktime that was put into my account on Thursday. SCORE! So I'll have a little bit more money to play with than I thought. Not a lot, mind, it's only 10 hours and I don't make that much, but still, it's something to help with the hospital bills.

Note to self: You need to remember to call Monday about getting reinstated back into the system, since it's apparently the only office in your company that isn't open on weekends. >_<

....and now this has been sitting here for two hours. Ugh. This is exactly why I need to be doing the blogging thing earlier in the day. XDDD Luckily it's not quite 11pm yet, so we're still good. ^_^;;;
