Aaa, so much stuff I wanted to briefly talk about.

Anita Blake )

Coming off of the Flirt book, the mini book, Hamilton starts to talk about how she does a mini story. A scene sticks in her head and sometimes it just won't get out of her head and she does it and everything comes out all the better for it. The little scenes I have in my head for my story that stalled are part of the reason why it's so hard for me to write a full book... that and I don't know how to end them. BUT that's neither here nor there. I think I'm going to do a side story I never would have been able to do in the full story anyway, since neither Blake nor Blaine are the main characters and it's only the results that matter in the main story. Even if I never actually DO include it in the main story, it'll be nice to just.... write and complete a story. It's been ages since I've done that when they weren't PWPs and, hey, the point of those is there IS no plot so there's nothing much to tie up in the first place.

Aaaand moving on to the more distressing news [to me] is that they're wrapping up the Census where I live. My CLA thinks they're collapsing my area into another one and we'll all be out of a job. Now, I knew it would happened eventually, as it was made perfectly clear to us that we're temporary. But since this IS government work, I totally expected it to last longer than it was supposed to, or at least not wrap up EARLY. So now I'm super pissed, because the reason why I wasn't able to make as much money as I should have been is because my current job fucked me over for hours. Those first three weeks turned out to be even more critical. I was hoping I could make it up, but no. I can't. The best I can hope is to transfer to another unit, but I'm doubting that. So, wonderful. I'm out of the hole, the time I had to try and figure out something else is past. I can't afford to not go back on the schedule 6 days a week when I don't have another income to at least balance it out. My life? Fuck it.

Speaking with my CLA has been a great boon for me though. He's the one who's given me all the ideas about an interest inventory to see what most interests me and all the other stuff that will hopefully be of help. Even if it isn't, at least he tried, I tried. Maybe something good'll come from it.

The last 5 days have been filled with 4-5 hour nights of sleep which just IS NOT ENOUGH for me. Since I didn't have a binder to work last night, I stayed out to read, went to the library, and then I got home and went to bed before 10pm. And it was glorious. Now I technically have today off, SO... I'm going to go fucking enjoy it B|

I've planted it in my mind that I need to stop complaining. Not necessarily look on the bright side of things, but just keep my complaints to myself. I'm fed, have a job, and everything that I could ever want is in my grasp if only I would reach for it. So I'm just going to hold my piece and quit my bitchin' lest I'm given something to really complain about.

I hate this stupid Unicorn game. Because. I just. Can't stop playing. And it doesn't have a MUTE button on it. I want to listen to my OTHER music, but I can't because THAT is playing and if I hear it one more time I'm going to BUST.

And onto more serious matters. I'm not even sure where to begin with this rant, because all the things I want to bring up aren't nearly smooth enough to broach such a 'controversial' topic. I don't think anyone on my f-list is going to rant and rave at me, but I usually like to have a nice little intro. Today I fail.

This is just a huge rant on race. Skip it if you want. )

I keep procrastinating on getting ready to go to work. Bad, I know. I have 20 minutes to get ready and GTFO.

I also forgot - recently remembered- one of the reasons why I disliked retail/grocery. People like to make you take your breaks hella early so by the time the end of the night comes when you want a break, you don't have any left.

Honestly, I'd rather take my break late. And late to me is at least after the halfway point of my shift, not goddamn 3 hours in 'just because I still have a 15 left later'. When you make we take the 15 minutes some 2 hours later when I still have 2.5 hours left before we leave, that doesn't help me. We aren't fucking busy and we have three people. Four, actually. Since the one in training [Hell, I'm still technically in training] doesn't count. I don't see why I can't take my lunch at 7 [after getting in at 2] and even skip my 5 altogether. I wouldn't even care. I hate and wasn't even hungry. ~_~

*sighs* I'm not going to suddenly ask for my break when we're slammed, guys. Can't you just let me take it at a reasonable time. =\
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (I'm a FAILURE ;__;)
I've been looking at a lot of Anime/Random selling places on LJ, thinking about using that versus eBay to sell off some of my stuff, but they are entirely too cheap. 5$, even if S&H is included is 'too expensive' but considering most manga cost 10 or 8.99 [I rarely get SJ series] that's still pretty cheap. 3-4$ including S&H is a rip-off to the seller, and I'm not that desperate. I want to make money, but I'm not going to sell myself short because LJ people are excessively cheap.

If all else fails, I'll try for trades for series I want, because I'm behind on a lot of things since I haven't bought any manga aside from Monster 18 in months. Maybe since Christmas of last year. I have too much stuff sitting around I don't want anymore.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

My first 8 hour day of work was okay until my legs started to hurt like a bitch. DX I definitely prefer mornings over nights, but I generally hate mornings. It doesn't matter much since my schedule is allll over the place. I barely get 20 hours next week because Tuesday I was unavailable and I couldn't switch with anyone ~_~ If I get done early enough, [before or around 6 so I can get to work by 7] I may call and ask if they want help just to get those extra 3 hours. The next week I have 33 hours. So yay \o\ [and boo for dying]. Either way, my check was more than I thought, but I'll probably get zilch back in federal taxes. *sighs* Something to think about later. I have to see about another job because car insurance is around the corner [again] and I won't be able to eat otherwise. Hopefully Wachovia will be hiring next month if all else fails. For the "Holiday Season", even though WTF has money?

Aaaand now I sleep. No sleep last night, so early night for me. I have to remember to poke that person tomorrow when I finish my shit. *sighs*

*shrugs* Now is the PERFECT time to tell me everything you never could before.

Or things you did and I just didn't seem to get. >_>

Also, why the hell are DOGS chapters getting shorter? Kami-sama, it comes out once a month, goddamnit. Why can't he do more than 16 pages? Does he have another serialization? That I could understand... except Oh Great!-sensei did Tenjou Tenge [monthly Ultra Jump] and Air Gear [Shounen Jump...right?] for a long time before TenTen seemed to die off.

I'm being ungrateful, :< but MEH.

Skip Beat came out today~ And Someone shoot me. I read Honey Hunt. I should turn in my 'Man' card now.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (щ(°Д°щ) ¡¿Pore quuueee?!)
Well. Interesting. I have no where else to go. I mean, I loathe MySpace AND Facebook.

Aaand Trojans can kiss my ass. Goddamn browser hijacking bastards.

I have a different one from before. It might have cleaned the other off but not before it downloaded another one. I'm gonna have to get down and go into the registry key. That could take me daaaays.

If anyone needs me, e-mail or tagging this entry is the best way. *sobs quietly*

8DDD I bred my silvers yesterday [just to see] and I got 3 eggs out of them~ All three silver even though I mated then with a shield and a... forgot the other one... >_> At least one of these is Manda's, since she wants a silver.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

My gold hatched~ Weee~ Unfortunately, my other split was FEMALE. She got wings AND grew up before I even had a chance to find out her sex. So now I have 3 female splits and a male. =__= This third female is being called Ice Mistress, because she ruined my naming convention. D< [You can blame Pan for that name anyway]

I'm still looking for a culture to name my Silver's after. I think this gold will be Aztecs, if I can find a decent list of names. If not, he'll be named Pellaz 8D;;

Bitching about work. =__= )

I really want a Gundam 00 cast in DF. *sits and sulks* But to be honest, I can't see what they'd do there. No Gundams or any of the technology they're used to. Yeah, they can get jobs and such, but unless they get some nice relationships with other characters going, there's no reason for them to stay.

And speaking of stay, I have to do Ativity Check...... with the updated format I've yet to make. >_> And send out the e-mail, too. This shit is going to be late this month. orz I'm behind on tags, too. I guess I'll do those first, since they've been sitting since Friday. >_>
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (remember)
My trip to the LTD Winter Conference was a mixed bag, truly. There were some parts I liked, and other parts I didn't. No matter what kind of convention you go to, it's always going to be like that, but... Well, the thing about it is, I would have enjoyed it more, but the bitch is like 3 days long. All talking. In 4-5 hour long intervals with different speakers.

They're inspirational, but I don't want 3 fucking days of that... )
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Bulletproof)
Even though I didn't get my hopes up too high, I was definitely wishing for the job I went on an interview for last week at the Data Center. Yeah, the pay kicked much ass compared to what I get now, but it really just seemed like an interesting job. It would have provided me with lots of experience and given me quite the padding to last for another month even if they didn't think I was right for the job. I'll call the guy back tomorrow to get the expected bad news. =o=

Then, yesterday, perhaps as some kid of bad omen, I was running late for work and was stuck behind some slow ass in the passing lane on the highway. Guy behind me was tailgating me a little and I was irritated as shit already and prepared to switch lanes to pass the guy ahead when I see those wonderful blue lights flashing. You know how you immediately look to your speedometer when you get pulled? I did. I was only going 70 in a 65 and I was like 'ajskdlajsfla' x fuckbillion cus that isn't even WORTH pulling over for, but I did.

And the cop passed right by me.

Obviously, he had somewhere to be and us lard-asses weren't going fast enough.

My first reaction isn't 'Whew, thank kami.' It's more of a 'You impatient asshole D<' because I was pulling over for nothing. Lucky I hopped right back on without losing much speed, but it still pisses me off. >/

Next on my agenda is a flat tire. Who the hell knows how long I've had it. Filling up my tire, I saw it had a nail in it. Thinking back on it, I bet I got that bitch in there when I was pulling over ont he side to let that cop pass. All sorts of shit flies over there from cars. That pisses me off even more, because the 20 bucks I have to spend to patch it is Christmas money. Gah.

Somebody just put me out of my misery and shoot me now.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (muka)
Because these results made me just......... well...

...damn you evil personality quizzes... )

Stop laughing Qing... D8!! You too, Pan!

Alright, MOAR OTAKON news. This really is only for Pan, who reads my journal and Andrew [who I link to it for random stuff] and Cheza, who is supposedly coming with us and if she cancels I'll beat her with a stick. A really sharp and pointy one with thorns on it or something.

WE. MUST. LEAVE. BY. 12PM. No ifs ands or buts. I expect that Cheza will be ready to leave when she gets here since she'll already be packed. She might want to take a shower and eat before we leave or wait until we get to the Hotel room. ::shrugs:: I don't know, but I assume she'll be getting in around 9amish or earlier for me to pick her up.

Imouto will have spent the night at my house somehow or I'll have to go get her though I prefer not to as that's more gas I have to pay for before we even leave. Either way, we're not waiting on her for anything, because when we have a deadline to keep, she's the most likely to hold us up waiting for money or something.

Pan... >_> You have to pick up not only Jessie and Shan, but also Andrew, unless he's going to leave his car at my house or yours...

EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE AT MY HOUSE BY 11:15 YOU LATE LITTLE BASTARDS D8 because if I say be at my house by 12 we'll leave at, like, 1pm and I'll get very pissy. Last minute trips to the store, getting gas, bathroom before we leave sucks up time like a mofo and I won't be late.... >_> We have to get there to pay our part of the hotel damnit.

Oh, and are we still going to go to Walmart as a group or is everyone going to fend for themselves and get anything they need for the trip on their own, because there's no group trip right before we leave this year.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Sorrow)

Did I mention kjasl;djakl;sjfda?!?!?

DAMN you. I have to go to the bank and.... so shit! Stupid mother fucking over-draft fees. FOUR of them. Yeah, two are my fault, but the other two, hellllllz no. I refuse to pay 80 dollars in over draft fees. REFUSE. I thought I have overdraft protection from my savings. Noooo. ::cursing rabidly at bank::

Anyway, Otakon. ::falls over:: I always want to have lots of money to spend there, as every year I go could be my last, but these last two times I have been sooooo totally brokish when I go. Damnit! I want to go and fucking get commissions and shit, but... I guess I can wait and gets cards and shop around and e-mail them about it later, but a lo tof the times, their con prices are cheaper.... ::dies::

I can't remember how much the hotel was a night so I can refigure my Otakon costs for the people going. x_x Was it 169? ::headdesk:: I need to talk to Seren.... ::siiiiighs:

I wanted to have 583 dollars [round it to 590, jebus, so exact] for the convention, and I don't think I'll even have a hundred, and I don't want to go crazy and use my credit card again, cus it took my months to pay that down. MONTHS. But I might have to if I want anything. ::siiiiiighs::

And hahha, fail. I had to call off work on Friday for my graduation cus I thought it was on Saturday so I didn't take that day off. BUT, I DID try to take that day off before because AMA is this weekend. Then, I got my graduation stuff yesterday, and she's like 'See you Friday! 8D' and my reaction is:

'Okay! 8D!'
'O_____O Friday?!'
'⌐_⌐...... well fuck...'

My manager was like '.............you can't come in early?' but I have to get my hair done, so no, I couldn't...... she totally wasn't happy. >_> And she was like 'We had a lot of poeple take off that day for graduation' and I'm like THANK GOD I'M NOT GOING TO BE THERE. They'll probably get out at 11:30 or some shit and DAMN am I happy my graduation is Friday and not Saturday. They're going to be there all fucking night. ::pats them:: Poor bastards. I didn't even want to go to my graduation, but sure as hell have to or my mother'll kick my ass. =_=

Anyway. To the bank... to smack some bitches...
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Owned)
You do realize that I'm going to beat you with a large, metal [yes, metal], internet stick, don't you, Cella? I totally didn't need anything extra right now, but gah you made me want to do it so bad. I hope they fail me and I can not re-do the app except for the fact I'm proud of that 1 hour hack job of an app. That and the fact I spent at least 2 hours looking at freakin' icons and thinking I need a paid account for this journal and my [livejournal.com profile] fool_rushing_in rp journal.

I'm still making the keyword for that picture 'Do you have a napkin?'

They need to update their list, too, cus the second character I was going to do was just recently taken. ::purses lips:: I suppose it's okay, since I already kinda doubted I'd be doing much with her anyway, but dammit I had decided! !@#$%^# Oh well. ::whistles:: You'd like my third character a shitload better anyway. ::griiiiiiiiiins::

Aaaand, yesasia.com I HATE yooouuuu~! My Christmas Present has now practically turned into an early birthday present as I'll be turning 21 in less than a month. Whoopdee freakin' doo. I'm hoping the package'll arrive by next Friday, which is February 2nd, coincidentally the day I'll be bringing Ichigo back to sages and doing his first post on d_m. If my package does come.........

I might be delaying coming back cus SHOUNEN JUMP ULTIMATE STARS FTW!

I've been dying to play it and get my damn Bleach Artbook! Damn you yesASIA!!!! ::ROAR::
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (More than I can take)
Well, RPing is still sucking my life dry. I'm still in Mai Otome withdrawl, and I'm contemplating adding mroe characters to my very short list. I think I need to do some time management before I add more stuff to my plate, though. Yes. Yes I do.

On another note, Effect of Drugs and Alcohol on Spiders' Webs. Just watch it. Really. And then go over to [livejournal.com profile] akuni's journal and beat her for it cus I just died laughing... Where do you even find shit like this?

I at least started on my RP post for when I come off hiatus, and have finished part of my second chapter for my original story. I feel so productive. :D

My fucking package STILL hasn't come, so I went to yesasia.com to go see what the hell was going on, and DAMMIT. They just shipped it out TODAY. HKT 11:11:57 AM which was technically yesterday at 10pm. BASTARDS. Why the fuck did it take then almost a month to fill the order in the first place?! ::stomps around:: It'll probably get here in another two weeks or something. ::roars:: I blame this all on Sony, because they sued lik-sang and they went out of business because of it. I got my packages in pretty much 2 weeks from them. ::fuming more:: I'm never ordering from yesasia again unless I have to.
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Owned)
I... I just...

Shoot me in the head please...

Just put me out of my PL/SQL misery... I've been working on this test for at least 3 hours and it's kicking my ASS... D:

Buuut, at least I finally figured out those songs that I liked and wanted to find the MP3s for. [Read: What Pan to find the MP3s for me]

Three Days Grace - "(I Hate) Everything About You"
Three Days Grace - "Animal I Have Become"

Funny thing is, there both by the same artist and I didn't even realize it... I'm such a loser...

And I haven't finished my thing for RPing yet, but am an even worse loser for being unable to stay on hiatus more than 3-4 days... I should stop cruising through sages and d_m, dammit... not to mention I have this drabble that's been half finished for more than 2 weeks. A DRABBLE. Not even a page long and I can't finish it...

<---- A.D.D.

Avatar Season Finale~! :D )

In other news, I finished my app for CFUD again. Sent it in. Await my second failure and mull over my two different versions for my other app. ::strokes chin:: Should be interesting, I guess. Won't wait until the last minute so I can get more than 1 out of 3 betas to respond... =_= I plan on getting at least 2 Naruto-mun's to look it over and one person who knows nothing of Naruto to make sure it's still funny without knowing the canon fully. Or so I say I will but procrastination is a disease, I tell you...

... that I have been procrastinating like WHUT on... and I made changes to it

Holiday Wishlist

Step One

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

So, yeah... )
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (More than I can take)
… I've been slacking at any real updates to my journal, and since I'm in a very ranty mood, I'm just gonna lump all of these mostly unrelated things into one HUGE ass post. They're all cut, for the most part, cus even I don't want to see how much space this'll take up when I've finished. Three pages 12 pt Times New Roman with 1" margins WHUT

When it comes to fan translations and professional translations, of course there's a difference. )

I put in some thought as to why I'd be staying home... )

Does anyone know or care about those Steps 1/2/3/4 [of Four] Complete I was posting a bit ago? Even if you don't, it was my steps in completing my Grimmjow application for [livejournal.com profile] campfuckudie. You can look at it here if you're curious. Scroll aaaallllllllllllllllllllll the way down to the last one.

Step One : E-mailing mods to see if Grimmjow was applicable.
Step Two : Completing application.
Step Three : Sending the application out for betaing
Step Four : Sending in the application

You can't just take the good part and leave the bad stuff behind… )

Why do all the pretty boys do other pretty boys? )

Gah, and that's all of it, I swear. I had another one, but I've been working on this post for hours and I give up on the last one… Lucky I even reread this for coherency and spelling errors which are still everywhere so shut up
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (muka)
So, it's a weekday, yesterday was a holiday, but school this morning. ::points to location:: See where I am? Yeah, that's right, home. Now why am I home and not sleeping when I should be at school? Mr.T locked me out because I was late. This is the first class of the term so I really should have been on time. I even said that I would be there by 8 o'clock today, and I had every intention of doing so, but you know what? I didn't make it. It was 8:07 by the time I got there. The door was locked, I knocked, those bastards Jamie and Melissa just waved at me and pointed to the clock. I was like 'I passed my highway exit... =_= ::still doesn't know how I managed to do that:: Let me in.' They just waved.

I was like, 'Fine. You wanna be that way?' ::walks away fully prepared to leave:: I see this other guy walk up to the door then try it, knock. I waited to see if they were just being mean and not letting ME in, but they didn't let him in either. ::laughs:: So, I decided, hey. Let's go to Ms.Isbell. I asked her, 'Hey, when's the next Relational Database class?' She was like, 2-3 terms. 'Okay. Well, Mr.T locked me out, sooo...' '0.o That's not right... ::gets up:: Let me find a key.' And so she wanders around for a key and I leave. Yes, leave and go home.

I dropped off kaa-san's dry cleaning, stop by WAWA [local gas station/mini supermarket, I swear] to get a chicken biscuit for which I had a craving, and a free coffee came with it. ::shrugs:: Vanilla cream... Mmmmmm... Then, I get home, and start typing. Phone rings. ::blinks:: Everyone knows I'm at school, probably a telemarketer. ::checks anyway::

Well I'll be damned, 'Yes, Mr.T?' 'Are you coming to class?' 'No. you locked me out.' '0.o What?! You can't just miss a whole day of class, we're learning important stuff today!' 'You locked me out... =_= And I'm already at home, and I'll just drop it and take it next time.' 'You can't do that, come on! Come back to class!' 'Gah, don't beg, I wasted gas!' 'I'll give you the gas money, come on, you can't just bail out like that!'


Whose fault do you think it is? =_=

So anyway, I've been coerced to going back to school... So much for Tuesday and Thrusdays off... =_=
kageisuke: Mitani from Hikaru no Go (Squishy)
Yeaaahhhhh! Bleach new opening and endings kicked ass! I especially love the OP! So shiny and ORIHIME AND MATSUMOTO LURVE! ::glomps it:: That bastard and Ichimaru! ::runs around:: But anyway...

So yeah, I just decided 'To hell with it!' and shoved allllll the crap on my floor onto my bed, unpacked my yet-to-be-put-together desk and assembled it. I started around, 2:30? 3:00? I finished up around 5:30, the time I would have been at work if it wasn't a holiday... ::cheers::

My mother harassed me about cutting the grass as usual, so I finally cut it since he wasn't raining like it had been for the past 4 days, and I just ditched the back yard. We have a fence. No one can see it but us, and she's like 'What about the backyard?' I'm like, Mother, before you could see it past the cars, now, we have a huge privacy fence for no damn reason since we have nothing in our backyard so what's the point of cutting it? Besides, it gets dark sooner and it was twilight-y... Of course, she's just like 'You should have just cut it, now you have to do it next weekend.' Like hell I am. Pointless as hell cutting the backyard. You wouldn't say that if YOU had to cut it. ::scoffs::

Either way, desk is complete and sitting in the middle of my room, shit is still on my bed, computer is still on the floor, but oh well! Yay desk with MADE IN CANADA stamps on it! Now I need to vaccuum and shove all the shit back on the floor! ::cheers again:: I was supposed to go to Imouto's house today, but she got called into work. ::laughs:: He bribed her with a raise this time. I just laugh...

Anyway, QUIZ TIME! )
