Hullo, everyone! Hope you are doing well.

Phoenix Comicon was a blast, despite a scare with an armed nutjob on Thursday, horrific organization Friday, and a prop weapons ban for the rest of the con. Will post pictures when I have the energy. And also blog about the books I've been slowly thumbing through and the manga I blazed through with abandon.

A personal post may also be in the works, my moods have swung particularly extreme lately, and life seems to equal fatigue and lack of patience.

What's been happening in your neck of the woods?

Me at work: 8 hours till I'm free. Then I'll do housework, dye my hair black and paint my nails black and prep my usual Medieval Goth dress for the BVB concert tomorrow night.

Me at home: It's 6 pm. Gotta do housework and dye my hair and stuff. But first, lemme work on my fanfic a little . . .

3 hours later . . .

Me at my computer: Yeah, the fic is finished! OH NO IT'S 9:30 AND I HAVE TO SCRAMBLE!

2 hours later . . .

Me at my computer again: Hair done, nails in progress. But it's worth it because my fanfic got its first review! <3

You know that jury summons I couldn't find (but I did eventually)? Well, even though I had it up in plain sight for weeks, I forgot about it until literally the last minute. Called the night before I was supposed to appear, heard my group summoned. Called out from part time job (down to just Mondays for my retail job), showed up at the courthouse downtown. Stuck around all day and got picked. Had to call out from my full time job Tues-Fri. We the happiest jury ever (literally, our awesome bailiff and all the staff around us were amazed how chill and fun we were) finally reached a verdict this afternoon. I have NEVER felt more free in my life. And I swear I'm NEVER forgetting about something like this again. (JFYI, I now know all sorts of cool stuff about how blood is tested for alcohol content.)

Last night, I blew off some stress watching Guardians of the Galaxy. It was really fun! I really resented the beginning, though. Yeah, just have a long, drawn-out, heartbreaking scene about a mother dying of cancer. You need to clinically depress all but the hardest hearts in the theater in order to get us to sympathize with Starlord. It's a good thing the rest of the movie was crazy fun, or else my emotions would never recover. The scene gathering Starlord, Gamora, Groot, and Rocket all together as they beat the crap out of each other was golden. I do wish we could have had more character backstory and development, like Avengers did, but that's okay. I'm glad they didn't try to force too much sappiness with Starlord and Gamora. Gamora ain't here for none of that nonsense. Lee Pace and Karen Gillan were pretty much wasted, though, just because there wasn't time to give them a chance to do much. Overall, though, it had a marked Star Wars vibe, and I enjoyed it.

Lately, I've been feeling rather stifled, so I'm trying to come up with ways to get myself out of my own head every now and then, and just breathe. I happened to spot a little blurb about a Matsuri Festival downtown (waaayyyy downtown, where parking's a nightmare, and the one-way streets are even worse, and ZOMG I miss the suburbs already). I'm going to check it out this Saturday, and probably eat a ton of food. I've been feeling like inhaling everything in sight lately. :)

Also, if I'm not lazy, I'll probably take pictures and post them here. My blog's been pretty sparse lately. :)

I don't know if it's cute or pathetic that buying a new broom made me happy today. Also can't decide if I'm tired or lazy, or both.

But I do know that I can't wait to see Maleficent.



Alright, off I go to coax my writing muse into cooperating. Every time I try to buckle down, my brain decides to freak out like C-3PO.

A belated but heartfelt thanks to all of you who sent me Christmas cards. I love 'em, and I'm putting 'em on display. (BTW, [livejournal.com profile] rhoda_rants the glitter was quite sufficient, thank you! I won't be vacuuming my carpet. I like having glittery floors, so I can pretend I'm walking on pixie dust.) :)



After having watched the Christmas Special and finally gotten around to finishing Eccleston's last episode, I've come to three conclusions. 1. The entire fandom needs hugs or alternate ending fanfics. 2. It was a bad idea to put myself through first viewing of two regenerations in one week. 3. Nine is my favorite Doctor. It's hard to pinpoint why, but the simple version is this: he's one of the snarkiest, and one of the darkest, and he's the one I'd want for a pal.

I thought it was Tuesday today. Since Tuesday always means morning shift at my call center job, I drove to the call center. And didn't realize it was Monday until my supervisor told me. Commence headdesk, apologies to bosses at both jobs, and a hurried drive to my retail job, luckily clocking in only 30 minutes late. People joked, and that was it. But boy, did my pride STING. Here I'm trying to be extra competent to land a coordinator position (which I'd been expecting for what, a year now, pending availability?).

I'm just going to blame my Tuesday fixation on Supernatural. Winchesters and resident angel of mischief, you life-ruiners, you. (LOVED the first episode, BTW, though I don't like Hael at all and semi-like Ezekiel. Not excited that all new female characters get on my nerves, except Charlie.)

I just hope and pray I don't wake up tomorrow and think it's Wednesday. O.O

gothrockrulz: (katniss)
This is the first time I've been online in three days. O.O In my defense, I was busy helping with two parties. The latter was a Doctor Who b-day party, which went rather well, even though not very many people showed. I promise to post tons of pictures for you all later, when I have time.

gothrockrulz: (purgatory dean)


The phrase "I can't even" sometimes gets on my nerves, and sometimes feels just right for the topic at hand, depending on my mood. Whenever Floor Jansen is concerned, it's spot-on. (Also, I really want that black and red outfit she's got in the video. It's fabulous. :D)

I also went shopping with my Mom, a favorite mother-daughter hobby of ours. )
gothrockrulz: (sephiroth)
Now that you've finally joined Pinterest, get off that brand-new account and STAY OFF. You are already addicted to Tumblr on top of LJ, you do not need more opportunity to waste time. I really mean it--ZOMG, is that another picture set of eyeliner styles just begging to be tried out?

This could get complicated.
gothrockrulz: (zack fair)
May you relish a great day filled with song and laughter as well as food!

Tomorrow will be a busy and tiring day (at first, at least), so I'm sending my greetings now while I can. Even though Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, thanks to all the food preparation, it's also pretty exhausting. Wish I could make it last longer! Thanksgiving seems to get the short end of the stick, being dwarfed by Halloween before and Christmas after. Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person that thinks of Thanksgiving not only as a day of thanks, but a day of rest and serenity (after the cooking). This time of year always feels calming and soothing, somehow, in spite of everything else happening. A much-needed wind-down, to allow time to catch breath, and then actually enjoy each breath. :)
gothrockrulz: (morticia)
I've got to get this out now, while the memory is at its freshest. I really do wish I had a better memory--I'm terrified that this will dwindle to a vague happy haze all too soon.

Sorry it took me a day more than I promised--this turned out to be way longer than I'd expected, and our family's wifi turned out to be way more touchy than I'd expected. (JFYI, I took a few pictures and a couple snippets of video, but it wasn't much. Mostly, I just have my thoughts and videos from other people on YouTube.)

Here we go . . . )
gothrockrulz: (howdy sam and dean)
Hello, all! Last few days have been a whirlwind of busy-ness and fatigue. (I say busy-ness instead of business, because there was nothing business-y about it. Yes, I'm feeling like butchering my native--and only--language today.) Fun, but not fun, because I've been separated from my preciousssss, the internet and the people on it. :D

But now I must fangirl over the premiere of Supernatural Season 8. This is special to me in so many ways, because for the first time, I'm caught up on a TV series just as it's actually, factually happening. That is an awesome feeling, minus the suspense rendered by commercials and waiting an entire week for the next episode. I'm used to blazing through 2 to 4 episodes a day.

Without dropping too many spoilers, let's just say I really enjoyed the episode, but felt it just a tad off. Like they had to amble through a set-up of the premise that really felt like nothing had happened, and the good stuff was still to come. Best part of the episode was, by far, our boys being reunited for the bajillionth time. That will never, ever get old.

And neither will this GIF. :D

BLAH

Sorry that I've kinda been missing in action. Last few days have not been conductive to spending time on the internet, what with a friend needing back-to-back sleepovers while she's alone in a new house with her parents out of town, and what with me, Mom, and two of my brothers watching 9 or 10 Supernatural Season 7 episodes in two days. (Our DVD FINALLY CAME, PRECIOUSSSS.) Speaking of precious, anybody seen the latest Hobbit trailer? I dare anybody to watch it without being divided by squees and tears. :D

I'll close with a GIF, because I fee like it.

I'm going to have a busy work schedule this week, because the lady who usually works in jewelry will be on vacation. So I'm basically going to be in jewelry all week long, more or less. Do not want.

It's not that I hate working in jewelry--I hate being tempted to buy all sorts of beautiful crap while working in jewelry. Hello, girl, you can't spend your paycheck before you even get it. We're supposed to be saving. (Am I the only one that lectures myself in multiple persons? Please tell me I'm not.)
