|Look! A sticky post!
Even though I don't post fanfiction here, I thought I would put this post up to redirect anyone who finds me via fanfiction communities to where I actually post everything. ^_^;
I post to a community I share with my partner-in-crime, pixymisa
, called teashopmuses
. The master list of all our fics is located here
. Go either join or watch us for more updates.
If you want to read my (admittedly sporadic) ramblings, you can also friend me. ^_^ That is all! Current Mood: accomplished

|I break my silence to make an announcement
Breaking: Becker is (still) an idiot.
I was cooking some ground beef and had gone to get something when Becker decided he HAD to lick the spatula, which I had laid down a good six inches away from the flame. So enthusiastic was his licking that he shoved it back onto the stove and, in the process, burned all the whiskers on his left, including the eyebrow ones. I grabbed him away before he could do any more damage, causing him much consternation as the idiot hadn't noticed he was getting singed and wanted to keep licking. He's left with short burned curly-ended whiskers and looks most ridiculous.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled life.

|And in other news
In less happy news, the kittens we're fostering appear to have fucked my laptop up. I think I've narrowed it down to it being a stuck key (from the girl kitten running across the damn keyboard), as the milk they knocked over onto it doesn't seem to have done damage. >_>
Also, there is Drama at work that has resulted in me taking over the teen department's programming for the rest of their summer reading program. Because I didn't have enough to do with just the children's! But, it's all right, because it's not All About Me (contrary to popular belief), and the teen librarian is working through some major stuff atm. I'm happy to help. Still, I am NEVER going to get any writing done the first half of this month. @_@ (Fortunately, the teen shit ends July 14 - my birthday, coincidentally! Unfortunately, the children's stuff doesn't end till July 27.)
Last, Jess's car broke down and so she had to buy a new one, and we're going to be in Even More Debt soon. She has a job now, which is good, but it's not entirely full-time yet and we're still running super-low in funds from when she didn't have one. I already know how much my CC bill is this month, and I definitely can't pay it all (naturally, MY car just required a MAJOR service). Sigh. Basically, I can't buy ANYTHING this month other than gas. I just bought a bunch of food, so I'm going to try not to even buy that. I'll be able to relax this SLIGHTLY when lightthesparks
is here, but we'll have to be SUPER careful. Actually, except for when she's here, I pretty much can't buy ANYTHING other than food or gas or, like, toilet paper for months. Bleh.
Okay, enough depressing news. I'm actually doing pretty well, except for being behind on writing because it's SUMMER and also STUFF. The foster kittens should be gone in a week (thank GOD. They're adorable and they loooooove me, but they eat food and they run across keyboards and do other kitten shit). They're going to my cousin, so I'll be able to see them occasionally. Yay!
And now I'd better go to bed. Goodnight!
|And so it begins
It's July here now, which means:
Or the month in which (I'm pretty sure literally) more than half my friends (and me!) have birthdays. :D
To start off, it's rzyna
on the first! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :D:D:D

|A list of things as they occur to me
1. We saw The Hunger Games
last night. My biggest issue was with the shaky-cam, honestly. I pretty much liked everything else they did. Yay! I liked the books well enough, and some of the issues with them were made better by the movie. The shaky-cam does get better after awhile, so it didn't kill the movie for me, but be prepared if you go. ^^ Also, Seneca Crane's beard
2. I've actually been writing and stuff lately, which means I'm feeling good. Yay drugs! Yay feeling better! I've been exercising too and being more careful about what I eat again, which probably helps.
3. I've also discovered sleeping on a more-or-less regular schedule has FINALLY started helping me (it didn't when I was younger, so my sleep SUCKED). This is good because I actually sleep for like 5-7 hours AT A TIME! *gasp* But it also kinda sucks because I can't stay up that late anymore. Or rather, I can, but I don't sleep as well. Boooo I like being a night owl! :( :( :( Maybe when I have a different job I can make it so my regular schedule involves staying up till 3am or something.
4. I've managed to pull a muscle in one of my thighs. The other foot has a very badly cracked heel. This means I'm going to lift weighs today instead of the walk I'd planned, haha.
5. I have caught up some on LJ but I'm still sloooooowly working my way through the backlog since November. Hopefully I'll be done soon! I'm glad I caught up on the ones of you I have so far, though. *hugs*

|Okay, I lied
So remember when I said I hadn't looked at LJ since November and I was going to start? Well, I still haven't, but I am going to do it now. Really! Wheeee! Expect comments on ooooold posts and such. :D
Also, I've injured my jaw somehow, so tomorrow I get to spend the day not talking, as it's usually okay in the morning and then gets more swollen progressively during the day, as I am forced to talk because, you know, I'm at work and stuff. Meh, stupid jaw.
I also had this detailed dream about a serial killer being after me last night, and I was also a forensic anthropologist, so I spent a good portion of it figuring out which severed limbs went with which body. This sounds like a nightmare, but strangely it wasn't. Just really odd.
Okay, back to working and surreptitiously catching up on LJ.

|Another quick note
I spent a total of three hours at work last week, as I was knocked down by THE PLAGUE (actually bronchitis and a sinus infection), so I basically didn't write a word because I kept coughing and sleeping and only had the energy to watch movies. @_@ But we rewatched the LOTR movies! Yay John Noble! AND we finally just saw the first Sherlock episode, and I have the others. :D
Anyway, time to get ready for bed, as I am finally going back tomorrow (today was a holiday). But yes, I'm alive, if anyone wondered. :D
|Friday, December 30th, 2011|
I went home for Christmas, which was awesome, wheee! I have a new laptop too, which is super awesome. (I am not using it though, as I am at work.) But it made me realize I haven't really looked at LJ since, uh, November sometime. (I've been busy?) So I'm slowly catching up on everyone. Thus, expect random comments to old entries from me over the next week or so. ^_^;;
In other news, I am hungry.

|Words of wisdom
It's harder to pornify The Twelve Days of Christmas than you'd think. >_>
(I'm stuck on the fifth thing. Well, I know what it is, I can't figure out how to make it fit the damn meter. Damn you, TDoC, for having a meter that's all over the fucking place!)

I just accidentally shut Azzy's tail in the door. Again.
(Azzy is short for Aslan, who is my cat in the icon up there.)
Now, the last time happened at least five years ago, but it was An Ordeal, in that the skin was sliced open and the tail debraided and he had to have emergency services and a cast on it and then had to have the cast put on again after he freaked out at the stitches and attempted to tear them (and everything around him) up. That time, he was trying to get out the front door and I tried to shut the door before he could.
This time, I was taking recycling out to the garage and had no idea he was trying to sneak out (he's not allowed out there and he knows it), so I didn't shut the door as hard as I did last time. Which is good, because as far as I can tell, he just has a cut (but not deep enough to bleed) and some swelling and bruising. He can move it, albeit painfully, and he let me examine it without even crying. I've given him some valium (it's his, because he is a very nervous cat and needs to be calmed the fuck down sometimes) to keep him from flipping (when he flips out from pain, it's BAD, but he doesn't do it much since he isn't in pain much), and he seems fine. But I feel bad, one because I hurt my cat, however accidentally, and two, because I had to do it while Jess was getting ready for work, thus making her life even more difficult. Which she definitely doesn't need. Sigh.
On the plus side, I'm not a sobbing wreck over it. Yay anti-anxiety drugs!
Now to go cuddle my kitty and feed him peanuts. (He loves them for some reason. Yeah, I don't know.)

|Beta for fic?
So, Jess and I wrote a fic together for S/D mini bang, and need to post it on Sept 28. Usually we beta each other, but this time, we need someone else to take a look at the finished project. (We're still going to beta each other's sections first, so it should be pretty close to finished by the time we'd hand it off.)
The beta we had lined up fell through because of a family emergency. Is anyone willing to do a quick beta on our fic? It's Supernatural (of course), H/C, only PG-13 (no porn, in other words), and, uh, currently around 13K, maybe 14 by the time it's ready? We should have it ready to be looked at by tonight or tomorrow.
Any takers? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

|Movie quotations, take two!
Here are the quotations no one got. I've added more to them to make it a bit easier. ^_^
1. "The sun was in my eyes, Astrid! What do you want me to do, block out the sun? I can do that, you know!"
How to Train Your Dragon, from the_sports_geek
3. "The lake goes around for miles. You, and your children, and your children's children, will dig for a hundred years, and you will never find it. Start digging, Trout."
Holes, from both theron09
6. "I've never seen my sister this happy, Ian. If you hurt her, I'll kill you and make it look like an accident."
My Big Fat Greek Wedding, from lightthesparks
7. "She's smart, fun. The hair, the eyes. Anything! Pick a feature! ... Wonderful! Magnificent! Glorious! Punctual!"
Aladdin, from probing_grays
YAY! Got them all. XD
|Friday, August 19th, 2011|
did this, and I couldn't resist. Here are 15 quotations from 15 of my favorite movies. Can you identify them?( Collapse )

|Ganked from beadslut
Bored at work, so here's a meme. NOTE: I have a lot of Japanese music on my iPod, but if I didn't understand the title I skipped it. Thus why only Glay shows up in this list, haha.
How it works:
1. Open your music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc).
2. Put it on shuffle.
3. Press play.
4. For every question, type the song that's playing.
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button.
6. Don't lie and try to pretend you're cool....( Collapse )
Well, that was mildly entertaining. Back to writing and eating things I shouldn't because it's my birthday! :D:D:D

|Becker is afraid of strange things
So, in the summer, Jess and I go swimming when we can. (We haven't been in awhile, because I've been sick and there was much editing to be done.) When dry and not in use, I fold up our pool towels and leave them on my bathroom counter, with our bathing suits folded up underneath. They've been there for, oh, two weeks or so, so this is not something new. Sometimes Azzy will even sleep on them.
Last night, Becker decided he was MORTALLY AFRAID of them.
Becker had some other mortal fears, like the vacuum (okay, that one I can understand) and brooms (that one I can't - it doesn't make any weird noises, cat!) and the swiffer and, for some reason, balloons. I can't figure out WHAT is scaring him about the towels/bathing suits pile, though. I picked up both the bathing suits and held them out to him, and he was fine with that. Then I held the towels out to him, and he was fine too. But if I tried to put him down ON the pile, he would FLIP THE FUCK OUT and go tearing away to hide in my room and shake like I had just tried to feed him to a meat grinder or something.
WTF, cat? Seriously, WTF?

|Oh yeah, this exists!
So I'm behind on LJ again. @_@
Man, why is it so hard to keep up?
(Actually, I know what happened in April. I wrote 19K of the cinema fic, then 10K of my first BB idea, then 28K in the last five days of April for BB after I dropped the first idea. THAT'S WHERE I'VE BEEN. I've been recovering ever since. @_@ And I still need to finish my charity fic HELP SOMEONE MAKE ME WRITE IT)
Anyway, I'm going to start catching up again over the next few days, so it'll be like last time, which comment spams, I'm sure. :D I've missed you all!

|OMG I'M DOOOOOOOOONE
Holy crap I just wrote over 28 thousand words SINCE WEDNESDAY.
So yeah, I'll be in Big Bang this year too. :D Just not with my original story idea, haha. (I'll still be writing it, but I basically realized it was going to end up too long/complicated for me to accurately handle in the amount of time I had.) I just emailed in the draft, wooo. And with about eight hours to spare! Go me!
This is why I haven't been on LJ recently, btw. I shall be catching up with everyone tomorrow. :D
Now to go STOP TYPING for awhile. @_@

|My life according to AC/DC
Ganked from beadslut
. This took FOREVER, btw. :P
Using only song names from ONE ARTIST, cleverly answer these questions.
Pass it on to 15 people you like and include me.
You can't use the band I used. Try not to repeat a song title. It's a lot harder than you think! Repost as "my life according to (band name)" ( Collapse )
