Believe it or not, I'm still out here somewhere! Despite still having an anagrammed X name, I do exist! Nothing like a good existential crisis to remind you that you're still alive!

Now that that joke's gone on far too long and made me look far more desperate than I actually amm...hi! Yeah, it's been a ridiculously long time since I've updated this journal, and I blame the fact that updating here actually takes some amount of cohesive thought and effort. I haven't had a lot of that to spare lately. Most of it's going to work, where we're wrapping up two massive summer projects. Classes start again on Friday, which means teachers come back Thursday, which means all of our lives up in the tech department are about to get insanely busy. That's going to be interesting. Most of my waking hours have been going to that, and I'm probably going to do some working from home this weekend in order to get things done. Things should calm down again on the work front in...October, maybe...so that'll be nice.

The other thing that's eaten my life, at least for about a week, was the release of KH3D. If you're friends with me on Facebook, you saw a bit of my frustration; if you have me on Plurk, you got the full-on screaming fury. I was even swearing at things IRL, which surprised the hell out of my roommate. I don't usually get that profane about...anything, really. I won't give spoilers here (though I'd be happy to link the exceedingly spoilery plurk rants if anyone wants them), but as far as final thoughts go, I really did enjoy this game. It gave me quite a bit to think about in terms of character development; it had a battle system that I both enjoyed and hated by turns (I cannot tell you how many times I died while waiting for Cure to recharge); I spent way too much time naming and feeding and petting and generally loving upon my Dream Eaters and enjoying the hell out of that; and it played Devil Went Down to Georgia on my heartstrings, but this is Kingdom Hearts and that's a given at this point. There are still a few massive WHAT IS THIS EVEN scenes and plot points I need to watch again and discuss with someone, and I do think they need to rename the Xanatos Gambit the Xehanort Gambit, but overall it wasn't too terribly difficult to follow. (Though, really, I thought Storm of Swords had given me a pretty bad Everything You Know Is Wrong moment, and then I played 3D. Wow.) Overall, I give it an A and I will probably play through it again in very short order.

As for the usual IRL stuff, health is about the same as usual (imperfect but I'll live, way the hell better than December was), work is busy as mentioned but still much better than my last job, and apartment things are pretty chill. My mom actually came down last weekend for three days with me at Disneyland; of course, it had to be 95 degrees for those three days, so we were pretty much melting from heat the entire time. It was still a ton of fun - we have bizarre and hilarious ride photos down to an art now - and it was nice to have Mom down here for a change, even if avoiding political discussions is much the same as tango-ing around the elephant in the room and my (exceedingly sane by California standards) driving does terrify her. Still! Good times.

As far as writing and fandom activities go...yeah. I have a long list of fics to finish and an even longer list of edits to make on my NaNo fic in progress so I can continue working on it and hopefully finish it this November. (Synchro, you are a saint for having looked over all of that. Seriously.) RP drive has also been flagging a bit, but that's something else I need to sit down and parse out for a bit and today is just not that day. At some point, yes, but not now.

Finally, I am running a music blog and a Disneyland blog! If you have a tumblr, please follow my ridiculous stuff; if you have a tumblr or a plurk or a Twitter or if you're on Adagio (yes, tea, it's awesome), give me your username and let's be friends there too :Db
Yeah, me neither.

Life is actually going okay at the moment. I'm trying to run last minute con prep errands, but that's par for the course given my inability to prepare for...anything, really. Flying home last weekend to surprise Mom for her birthday was a blast - she had absolutely no idea I was coming and she loved the hell out of it (though she did make it clear that she wants me to move back to Colorado and get married and have kids. It was a very interesting turn for that conversation to take).

She also wanted me to get tested for lyme disease on account of minor lingering symptoms from my medical litany of woe. I went into the clinic yesterday to get the test. When I told the doctor the theory and why I was getting tested, she started laughing. Pretty sure it's not lupus lyme disease.

Also, I managed to plow through Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter in a weekend. That is a very good but very interesting book. The movie is going to be ridiculous. I cannot wait.

In other news, [personal profile] lynxgriffin and I are going to be at AM2 Con in Anaheim this weekend! If you're in town, come visit us! Lynx will be selling all her lovely art - and those hand-painted fandom pony figurines - in the artist's alley, and I've entered a video into the AMV contest. On top of it all, AM2 is free to attend. Everyone should come. :Db

Finally, because I am trying to get back into the swing of writing, it's meme time!

Give me a character or a pairing and a song and I will write you a fic of some sort.

YouTube videos are probably your best bet unless you know I know the song, and I can't guarantee that it'll be 1) longer than a sentence or 2) done in a timely manner, but...yay writing!

You've heard of Secret Santas? These are Secret Valentines, because receiving packages is all sorts of fun and I figured everyone could use flowers or chocolate or coffee or tea or something nice along those lines.

So! If you'd like to participate, comment here - comments are screened - leave your name, mailing address, and what you like (a certain type of tea or coffee or chocolate, for example - give me some idea) and on Monday or Tuesday I will tell everyone who their secret Valentine is and you can send them what they'd like.

Basically, gift giving in February! Because we can!

Those of you seeing this post on LJ, I have no idea if comments will be screened, so if you want to participate, trundle on over to DW and comment there with an open ID.

I HAVEN'T LOST MY HEART TO THE DARKNESS AND LEFT MY BODY AND SOUL TO GO WANDERING AROUND AND JOINING A MURDEROUS GROUP INTENT ON OBTAINING THE UNIVERSE'S ULTIMATE POWER

-I mean

Extended Kingdom Hearts jokes about existence aside, I am still around, believe it or not. I have also been keeping up on people's posts, even though I am the epitome of comment fail.

As far as life goes, it's been pretty much the same. I'm still trying to figure out what the stomach issues I'm dealing with are (the gastroenterologist had a few ideas as to what it might be, so I'm working through those), and my pillow stopped working for me for some reason, so I've been going through a lot of semi-sleepless and achy nights trying out new ones to find one that works. Aside from that, nothing else is really different as far as work and social life goes.

This is why I don't update this journal too much, I think. My Plurk is enough of a litany of woe - I'm not sure I want to spread it elsewhere. |D

Other than that, [community profile] itsjustagamerp is going really well! If I ever need a laugh, I just go read a thread. You guys are all awesome. ♥

I will have a Secret Valentine (think Secret Santa) post up within a day or two - it was supposed to be tonight, but it's been a long day.

Finally, and most importantly!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY [livejournal.com profile] corrielle!

I have been asked to post my Christmas list, and so I shall! |Db

The list, for the interested! )

So yes. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, happy Solstice, and enjoy whichever holiday you celebrate this season!
Day 5 of NaNo: 11,336 words, which is only 330 words away from Monday's goal, and I'm pretty sure I would have eclipsed that by now if I'd done more than two word wars tonight. Still, I'm going to a write-in tomorrow in addition to doing my usual nightly session, so hopefully I can get a good chunk more done.

The best part is, I am really enjoying this - a lot more than I would be if I'd been doing it alone. The AIM chat, and actually doing this with people, is a fantastic motivator and just so much fun. I love you guys - you know that. ♥ As always, the chat name is oshinano and you're all welcome to join and chat and word war with people!

In other news, I'm no longer allowed to watch Air Force games, because recently, every time I watch a game, they do poorly, and every time I leave and check the score later, they win. Case in point: today's game against Army. I watched the first half, and we were down 14-0 (though the touchback at the end of the second quarter helped); I walked away at halftime, and we wound up winning 24-14. I don't get to watch anymore. XD

Also, evidently my roomies and I are now honorary KSU fans. Kristin was going to a show tonight, so we went to a sports bar nearby to have dinner. Turned out it was College Football Night and the place was absolutely packed - they were saying at least an hour's wait for a table. We headed upstairs, found a table that was being cleared off, and asked if we could sit there. The waitress asked if we were with Kansas State, then let us sit at the table anyway because Megan's coat was purple and that was good enough. (Purple's a KSU color.) We sat, we had great food, we pretended to be excited about the game, we socialized with other fans (or at least I did and completely bullshitted my way through the whole thing)...and then Phil, the party organizer, came up.

"Hi! I haven't seen you guys at our watching party before. Are you all KSU fans?"

For those of you who don't speak College Sports Football Fan, allow me to translate: "Prove your loyalty or get out of our booth."

I don't remember the last time we all BSed so hard, but eventually we placated Phil and he sat back down. We left the bar not long after that - it was time for Kristin's show, and none of us wanted to stick around when the KSU fans were all scoping out our table. I'm not sure we can ever go back, but we did have a really good time.

Favorite lines of the night:


She stopped, suddenly meeting his eyes, her gaze determined and questioning. “Tell me, do you think I’d make a good queen?”

That stopped Terra dead. There was a very clear right answer here, but something told him the princess didn’t want that answer – not if he didn’t mean it, at least – and he honestly wasn’t sure he did. It left him caught between a rock and a very hard place. “Uh,” he tried, eloquent as ever.

“Be honest with me,” she added, seeing his dilemma. “You won’t get in trouble for it, I promise.”

He sighed. There was still that pressure to say the right thing – he had a feeling that wouldn’t go away, no matter how much she reassured him – but it had lessened somewhat, and he was pretty sure she’d be able to tell if he wasn’t being completely honest with her. He’d been told in no uncertain terms that he Could Not Lie, and he wasn’t about to test the theory now. “I don’t know,” he finally admitted. “I don’t think I know you well enough to know what kind of ruler you’d be.”

She looked away, frowning sadly, and for an instant he was afraid he’d said the wrong thing, honesty be damned. “I was afraid you’d say something like that,” she said quietly, and he could hear the disheartenment in her voice. “I’m not sure anyone knows me very well anymore, and I’m not sure I know anyone either. I just-” she shook her head, that oft-worn frustration returning. “I get the feeling that everyone’s lying to me, and I don’t know how to get them to tell me the truth.”

(Yeah, it's a long section, but I'm finally getting into something resembling character development and I am just pleased as punch about that. Here's hoping it actually works out.)
Five days in Colorado was exactly the vacation I needed. I just need to remember next time that I need to drink a lot more - because dehydration headaches suck - and I can't drink pretty much anything - which sucks when Mom's buying and asking if I want a margarita because they're really great here and here, try hers and see if I like it. Honestly, I know my mom is happy to have me around whenever I come home, and I think she likes having someone who'll go out for fruity drinks and conversation. She likes having mother-daughter time.

In all honesty, it was really nice to have someone else make the decisions and the schedule and just follow along - a break from being a responsible adult, as it were. I put a ton of pressure on myself with to-do lists and self-imposed deadlines and all of that, and it was nice to get to just put all that on hold for an extended weekend and hang out with my parents. My younger brother is at college, my older brother came by for an afternoon, and I didn't get to see my sister-in-law or niece, but there's a flipton of drama surrounding that that I'd rather not get into right now. |D Either which way, I did love seeing my family. The football game was fun to go to even if it ended horribly (which is what happens when all of your starting defensive line is sidelined with injuries - the BSU game at the end of this week is going to be painful), shopping with mom was actually a lot more fun than most of my recent shopping trips have been, Sequence is a fun game if a bit slow with only two players, the new house is beautiful, and...yeah. Hell yes Colorado. :Db I do regret getting the donut burger, though. Remind me to post pictures of that.

The only thing I'm worried about is Finn. Since my parents moved into the new house, he's gone pretty much crazy: he's ripped up his kennel when they put him in it when they leave (whereas Mac just curls up in his and naps until they get home), he whines like mad, he's losing weight - he's skinny even for a greyhound, which is worrying - and he just generally Does Not Look Good. Mom's bringing him in to the vet's and, if that doesn't work, possibly a dog whisperer, because he never used to do any of this stuff, and if we give him up or, God forbid, put him down - which is a very sad option if he continues on being this destructively miserable and we can't find the reason and calm him down - then Mac will go ballistic without him around. The dog situation at home is not good, but I'm really hoping it'll turn out for the better.

A little closer to the west coast, my bosses are out of the office all week (Hawaiian vacation, lucky them), so I'm on my own and keeping busy with whatever project updates come up. This Friday, I head to Disneyland for the Halloween party with [livejournal.com profile] amorsinseramada, [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin, and [livejournal.com profile] universejuice, and sticking around on Saturday as well. Costumes aren't quite finished yet, but those are priorities for the next few nights. It's just a bit of cutting and hemming (and praying shoes come in on time), so it shouldn't be too bad. I hope.

On the fandom works front, [livejournal.com profile] secondcityrpg is almost over and Rarity has been accepted at [livejournal.com profile] itsjustagamerpg - I just need to join the comms and get going. Tron fic is on hold until I get to rewatch Legacy - maybe sometime next week - and while I haven't done much for my NaNo outline, I have been kicking around ideas for it, so hopefully that'll start coming together soon. Again, next week's priority.

Who all's doing NaNo this year, by the way? I'd love to know - something tells me I'll need people to lean on come November. |D

( Oct. 10th, 2011 12:35 am)
I. Really fail at this, huh. |D I used to get upset that my flist would disappear to Plurk, and then I got one, and...well. Kettle called the other day, said my name was now Pot, and told me I was looking a little black there.

Life is, per usual, wild. I'm working forty hours and still herding cats to various degrees, and it wears me out, but it's still all very much good. The project that's been driving me absolutely wild is done, so that's definitely a relief.

Last Sunday - only a week ago, but it feels like forever - I headed up to [livejournal.com profile] orelle_peredhil's wedding. First of all, congrats Orelle! You know you are amazing and he is amazing and you two are amazing together ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Shopping for the bachelorette party was...interesting, the bachelorette party was hilarious and slightly wild by turns, but the wedding was fantastic and beautiful. (The guy setting off fireworks in the field behind the gardens, unintentional as it was, added to that effect.) It was also fantastic seeing people I hadn't seen in a while, especially those who live way far away from me (multiple hours' drive time, basically). There were large amounts of dancing and cake and inside jokes and the reception got a live Rickroll, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] jedizero and Jeff (oh, Jeff), who were in turn taking it over from a guest who couldn't be there on account of being in Europe, messing with particle colliders. What this basically sums up to is, congratulations to the bride and groom, and our friends are awesome.

Jumping from one huge event to another, somewhat smaller one, I went to the Ventura Highland Games yesterday with Kristin and another friend. The goal of finding an attractive guy in a kilt went pretty much unfulfilled, as most of the guys in kilts were over 40 or under 18, which is not exactly in our age group. At all. We did, however, get to watch a corgi herd sheep - which is one of the most adorable things I've seen in a very long while - and watch large men in kilts throw logs - the caber toss, which was pretty damn awesome. There was also haggis, and contrary to popular belief, haggis is quite good. The event for the end of the day - folk dancing - wound up being something for the much-older-than-us crowd, so we got in the car and went to Borderline for line dancing instead. I am sunburned and still tired and will likely bypass the Highland Games in favor of the Ren Faire next year, but it was still a ton of fun and well worth doing.

As for every other side project I'm working on - fic, videos, RP, everything - I am in the middle of pretty complete burnout. The upside is, I think I may have figured out why, and it stems from my propensity for to-do lists. I have a list of smaller things to do almost every day, I have a larger monthly one for longer projects (which I am notoriously bad at), and I have an ongoing list of stuff I want to do in general (like work out, start eating healthier, all that fun stuff). Between lists of Things That Need Accomplishing, and that nagging feeling of unproductivity and self-induced guilt when, inevitably, not everything gets done, I think I've forgotten how to just take a day off and relax. Instead of finishing a task and going, "Yay! I am accomplished!" I finish something and go, "Yay! That's done! Now go do all the other things." It's all an unending stream of Things I Have To Do, which eventually makes me not want to do anything at all. I work, I come home, I work out, I take care of all the RL tasks that need to happen, and then I completely waste the rest of the night because I don't want to work on anything else - no video, no writing, no RP, no nothing. It's become "I have to do this" instead of "I want to do this," and when it comes to creative fannish pursuits, that's just stupid and borderline unhealthy.

Sleeping eight hours a night, far-fetched as the idea is, would also help.

So yeah, I pretty much need a day or two to just check the hell out. I'm heading to Colorado on Wednesday, so hopefully that'll be my chance, at least to an extent. For now, I need to go relax somewhere. We'll see how that goes.

- IC I Never is a ridiculous amount of fun. Sunday proved that you can totally play against characters you don't know; Monday proved that it could be done over Skype, though in person is much better.
- Way in advance, but I'm really looking forward to this upcoming Gallifrey.
- I have a Plurk now! I have given in to the masses. The name is Kiaxet. Friend me.
- Second City is having a Fourth Wall Event! Throw your characters in! Have fun! Let's all be derps together!
- I drove for three hours in gray and drizzle today, all job-related, and it just wiped me out. LA traffic is not a happy thing.
- I can't figure out if I want to do Disneyland this weekend or not. I think it's going to wind up depending on Whether I Feel Like It Or Not the day of - no other factors. We'll see.

Finally - because this took me forever - I wrote another Bitty Terra drabble! There are only two left after this one. I'm almost done. It feels weird.

Either way, please beta the hell out of it and enjoy! :Db

Aqua had never thought a door could be scary. )
I figure pony recaps will happen when I haven't posted for a few days and some relatively big stuff has gone down. Basically, this amounts to LOTS AND LOTS OF PONIES because I am a lazy bum.

To start, my birthday was Tuesday, and I got a group of sixteen people together for dinner at Gyu-Kaku. I don't know if anyone's ever tried to fit sixteen people in a relatively small restaurant, but it's kind of surprising just how big a group that is in a restaurant of that size. It was also a whole lot of How Do You Know Katie - I had my roomies, friends from cons, house of fandom, and Pepperdine friends there. It was a ton of people and a ton of fun, and you all spoil me, seriously. ♥ I started opening presents and just:



Because seriously. I am spoiled. And I love you all.



Thursday night (or technically Friday morning) was the Pirates midnight showing at El Capitan, so of course I went with a group of friends. :Db It was a fun movie! It certainly didn't outdo the first one, but it felt much more like we were getting back to the look and feel of the first, including having Jack actually act like Jack, which is a nice change. Plot was a tad simple, I wanted a bit more from the MacGuffin Army, but the action was fun and the dialogue was witty and damn was the missionary good looking.



Basically, well worth seeing and I would recommend it, though I don't think the 3D is necessary.

I also managed to walk out of that showing with eight new pins, only four of which I paid for. Free gifts are awesome.

Of course, I was utterly sleep deprived for all of Friday, but that's okay! I can function on four hours of sleep. Life is good.

Finally, I'm having a tough time finding a gif to express just how dumb I think the whole nonpocalypse thing today was. I'm tempted to go with this one:



Or potentially this:



But in the end, I think this one's the winner:



Can't wait to do this all again in 2012. 8Db
SATURDAY:



Saturday we went to a house party that Kristin and Megan's roommate was putting on. It was actually fun! Their coworker, who, swear to goodness, is named Kermit, is actually not a bad bartender (though the energy-drink-based drink he mixed on request was soooooo bad oh man). He's not the type of guy I'd like to geek with for too long, since he is Highly Opinionated and Always Right - it's the combination that's the killer, really - but there were about ten other people there to socialize with as well, and good company all around, and pizza, and Rock Band. I had no idea they had Pat Benatar's "We Belong" in Rock Band, but they do! There was a severe and woeful lack of Offspring and Journey, though. Also, songs that cater to vocalists over instruments were termed the "wine coolers of Rock Band." I'm a vocalist, but I might have to use that any because it is hilarious.

SUNDAY:



Disneyland! Disneyland Disneyland Disneyland! The rides were all sorts of fun, I got a shiny six-person pass simply for being polite (and likely for having my HAPPY BIRTHDAY button in plain view, but politeness helps too), I walked around for a good chunk of the night with a lightcycle painted on my face thanks to ElecTRONica, I managed to get a WDI Tiki Room pin (which is a rare thing, so I'm pleased), and we found out that they will be releasing a KH pin in the park in late June. What is this I don't even. You'd better believe I'm either camping out for that sucker or sending a proxy to do just that, because I want that badly especially in multiples. Trading is good 8D. Basically, I love this park, I love my roomies, and I love [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin - awesome Disneyland party is awesome. 8Db

TODAY:



So I walked into work exhausted. That was mistake number one. 8D

My task for this week, and basically until it gets done, is to put the audio into demo videos for a project that we have been working on literally since I started temping at my job in January. It's been a long time coming. The previous demo videos for this project have been easy - they came with one set of audio cut in all the right places, and all we had to do was input our audio in the right spots and remove the old stuff. Not so much this time around.

The new videos are timed too quickly for the audio, and I'd be up a creek without a paddle on that front if Camtasia didn't have a freeze-frame effect that lets me extend one frame as a still image. The script that tells me what audio goes at what time on the video is useless, since I had to extend frames in the video right off the bat and that throws everything out of whack. On top of that, I thought it'd be a good idea to cut all the audio at once instead of leaving it in one strip and cutting it as needed. I keep having to move audio further out to make room for all the wonky timing in the video, and Camtasia's inability to move multiple audio clips at once means I have to start at the end and move every one individually every time I need to lengthen the video.

I spent all day working on this video and have about five minutes of video to show for it. The video is ten minutes long. It is one of three videos for this module. There are ten modules.

This'll be fun. 8Db

Also, I have not forgotten about one-sentence fics and mini FSTs! I shall get to them eventually, promise. You can also still request one if you want one - I will get around to them. :Db
First and most importantly, Happy Mother's Day! To everyone on my flist who's been a mother or will be a mother, thank you for taking on the toughest job in existence and never let anyone tell you it's not a wonderful thing to do. To everyone out there who has a mother, take some time to do something special for her today, or at least say thanks. You would quite literally not be here without her, you know. ♥

I live in a different state, so I'm calling my mom in a bit. With any luck, she got my card already. |Db

I went to go see Thor on Friday night. It was an opening night crowd, which means it was loud and appreciative (and at some points hilariously profane) and I loved the hell out of it.

As for the movie itself, Spoilers for Thor abound! )

Non-spoilery long story short: Did it measure up to previous Marvel movies? Yes. Was it fun to watch? Yes. Am I going to see this a few more times in theaters and wind up owning it? Most likely and definitely yes. Basically, A++, Will Watch Again.

On a relatively related note, does anybody know if the Spider-Man reboot is going to feed into the Avengers movie at all? Because that would be fun, I think.

On a completely different but still fun note, my birthday is in nine days! I'll be turning 23, which isn't really a landmark but is still a reason to celebrate. I believe in parties (not quite up to Pinkie Pie standards, but still), and so I'm having two of them!

The first is on Sunday the 15th, and it's Disneyland day! Come to Disneyland, we'll hang out and ride rides and go see Fantasmic and it will be all sorts of fun. :Db

The second is on Tuesday the 17th, my actual birthday, and it's dinner at Gyu-Kaku! I have a weakness for Japanese BBQ, obviously. |D Dinner's at 7:30, so let me know if you're going and I'll make reservations.

And yes, if you can see this entry, you're invited. XD

And because I know some people want a list in regards to gifts, I have a relatively short one:

- Tron: Legacy Marquee pin (Ebay is my friend)
- Membership to Teavana's Tea of the Month club (pie in the sky, but nonetheless XD)
- Tron on DVD
- Gift Cards: Teavana, Disney, Godiva, Gyu-Kaku, White House Black Market, Brighton, Albertsons/Ralphs/Vons, or just about anywhere else I frequent.
- Fic, arts, fun artsy stuff - you guys know my fandoms and my pairings and what I like

Though really, I'd really rather hang out with you guys than receive stuff. Y'all are the best present I could have. ♥

As a closing note: Glee's doing "Friday" for their next episode; there's a new clip of At World's End released; and this absolutely made my morning.

And with that, I am off to see African Cats in a few hours. Good times, guys. Good times.

On the RP front, I need to figure out what the deal is with Linkara, talk with Lyra about doing stuff with Eb and Rosette, get caught up for Rarity, and try to convince myself that picking up Jason Stackhouse is a bad idea, no really, it is, and if I can't do that, then come up with a journal name for him.

Obligatory Super Bowl preamble: Pregame was okay, with the presentation about the Declaration of Independence being the best part; why Lea Michele performed, I'll never know; Christina, that was a terrible time to have a brain fart; DORITOS PROMOTE NECROMANCY and have creepy commercials; hell, almost all of the commercials this year were creepy or boring; the only good commercials were Volkswagon, Coke, Carmax, and that Lassie!truck spot; BEP have terrible stage presence and was unnecessarily political, I've seen better Tron cosplayers at cons, and that sound supervisor had a really bad night; neither team played very well, but the Packers played marginally better; overall, it was pretty bleh.

SDCC passes get, thanks to Kroze. I need to start figuring out cosplay stuff for that.

I evidently have a pass for WonderCon, Ryune wants me to stay with her, and flights from LAX to San Francisco for that weekend are $88 each way on Southwest. I've all but decided to go.

And it only just hit me that Gallifrey is the weekend after next. What is this I don't even. I swear I haven't even been thinking about that. |D [livejournal.com profile] betwixt_worlds, if there's a day you're not busy, can I pop by sometime and grab cosplay things from you? [livejournal.com profile] estelofimladris, let me know what I can do to help with Pirate Party stuff and for sure if I should dress for it accordingly.

Usually I give myself more time to prepare than this. This totally took me by surprise this year. o_o
Goodbye, 2010. You weren't the greatest ever, but you marked some very important events in my life.

Hello, 2011. May you be a happy, healthy, prosperous year for us all.

Happy New Year, everyone. I love and cherish you all, and I hope the coming year is fantastic for all of you.

It's two in the morning. I'm getting up at six to catch my flight. I should be in bed.

I'm laughing too hard to sleep right now.

This is why. )

HEY [livejournal.com profile] secondcityrpg MODS, CAN WE DO THIS? PLEASE? 8D

...no, seriously, can we do this. XD


Favorite version of this song ever. It's got all the upswing joy you could ever want without losing the awed, reverent feel this carol should really have. The choir in the background certainly helps.

It's been a long and somewhat dramatic day for me, but I'm not talking about that right now; it just turned Christmas in Colorado, so I'm here to wish you all a merry Christmas. ♥

As usual, I've got a little drabble to go up - today, however, it's a bit different. Of course, I'm still on my BBS kick, but this is non-spoilery. Title is Comfort and Joy.

For Terra, it wasn't the discovery of a world that was Christmas every day... )

For those of you who don't care for KH, I have this:



ITZ SANTA GAIZ 8D

Kitties make everything better, yes? I thought so too.

I love you all, guys. Have a merry Christmas and a safe, peaceful, happy weekend. ♥
I have a lot of things to talk about! For example:

- Thoughts on Hickory Farms
- Thoughts on Brighton
- Why Christmas/holiday parties with friends are amazing and why they need to happen all the time, not just over the holidays
- Recent Disneyland trip
- TRON 8D
- ...probably other stuff that's happened that I can't remember

But I'll do all that when I don't have to get up in...five hours...to go open for Hickory Farms. Yeah.

I don't sleep much nowadays. 8D;;;


Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and Happy Regular Day In November to all my other friends! I had a long and rather poetic post planned, but that was before the tryptophan. As it is, I am grateful for every single solitary one of you, even if I've been communication fail. There is still gratitude.

♥ you all~
