Pip pip cheerio, and all that.

Okay! Now that I'm all caught up on TF:Prime...

England was awesome. I haven't posted about it 'til now because I've been sick (still coughing, before you ask, but otherwise okay), but - yeah. Mostly 'Boots and I just wandered around a bit, nommed traditional nom (treacle sponge pudding with custard, zomg), and were Very Very Silly together. There was some historical-type tourism in London, during which 'Boots and her dad took great delight in pointing out all the buildings that were older than my entire country. As I was kind of running at the nose at the time, my most coherent answer was *pthhhbt.*

Can't wait to go back. <33333

Argh, my legs hurt now. *sob*

You guys. You guys. It was seriously sixty degrees and sunny out today. Actual sunshine, not just the winter kind that you can see but not feel. I was out in just my scrubs and I could feel heat on my face. I had to roll my car window down while I was driving because it was too warm in there.

I... I think I have spring fever, a little bit. *wiggles*

Now watch as we get a giant blizzard next week or so.

Adventures In Farm Country

This was actually the first time I've been to Illinois when I wasn't visiting relatives. So y'all are Sworn To Secrecy - don't tell my grandmothers I was in the state. ;) ANYWAY.

Let me tell you about my weekend! :D )

Am safely at (lj)ravynfyre's house. It's thunderstorming. The dogs are very friendly, if flatulent. Currently we are geeking about on the Internet.

Still alive. ;)

In case there was any doubt that my brain is a strange place.

Now that I'm somewhat recovered...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So yes. Headed up to D.C. after work yesterday and met (lj)rosieknight by the elephant in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. ^_^ I have been jonesing to see the Hall of Human Origins since I first heard of it, but we wandered through the Sant Ocean Hall, a truckload of colonial bones, and SPARTAAAAA first. Then we walked a couple blocks down to the Air and Space museum, wherein we brainstormed for Steampunk Beast Wars and speculated which bits of Washington various Transformers would enjoy. (Skyfire is still holed up in the basement of the National Archives. Beachcomber had to be pried out of the Gem and Mineral exhibit in Natural History with a crowbar.)

Lucky thing I had the day off today. I needed that time to recover from all that fun (and the heat, zomg).

Next Fun Thing on my agenda: Distant Worlds at Wolf Trap tomorrow! Eeee!

The Botcon Report!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Ta-da! The Botcon Report! ...Well, mostly it's just me transcribing all my voice posts (minus the um's and uh's) with some additional notes. Since the voice posts are LJ-exclusive, I might as well do this for my IJ and DW friends too. <3

Long post is long and rambly. )

Picture post and a few skibbles coming soon. Oasis has some of the pictures I want to post, since my camera died Sunday afternoon.

June 7th, 2010

Skibbles from when I was bored at work.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Three Transformers, one a crossover with FF. )

ANYWAY, I promised stories. So here are stories. )

And now I go to detail my costume (screw paint, I'm using colored duct tape!) and cogitate about what to do re: that damn cannon.

[info]teamromy and [info]weranarchist!

Thank you for my present! It's not just a game - it's the excuse I needed to finally break down and get a PSP. :D

I couldn't think of anything to draw for you, but *hearts!*

Starscream: "Pff. These pitiful fleshlings call these thrill rides? I'LL show them thrill rides!"

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, Saturday I went to King's Dominion with my first local friend, her son, and her mom. Which, I think, is about the perfect party for an amusement park. Two thrill-seekers, two people to hang back and keep each other company while they watch the thrill-seekers' stuff. ;) Seriously, I had a lot of fun, even if 'Crypt' kicked my ass. XD As did the heat - I swear to you, I am just now recovering from the heat-sickness - though it was worth it around two when we finally got into the lazy river. Zomg so gooooood.

In other news, my bosses still haven't gotten back to me about full time and-or website work, and Michael's is hiring. Argh. *headdesk*

Various things, that may or may not have anything to do with each other.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, I misspoke yesterday. Turns out the TF kink meme isn't the first of its kind to break the comment limit - the Phoenix Wright one is on its third or fourth post, which knowing the source material actually doesn't surprise me at all. XD But! This in no way takes away from our own accomplishment. Pooooorn! :D (It continues in [info]tfanonkink, by the way. In case you were looking for your sticky fix. Which I am most certainly not, what are you talking about.)

I picked up Transformers: The Veiled Threat at the supermarket yesterday and got about two-thirds through it. It's... well, I've read better fanfics, frankly (*loves on flist*), but it's got some cute moments. Not the least of which is Optimus listening to peppy Japanese girl pop. ^_^

It occurs to me that I've become kind of a hermit even online. I don't stay involved with my friends nearly as much as I want to. I'm just usually so tired and can't concentrate real well during the week, so I let comments slide - especially feedback on fic and such. I apologize to you all. I'll try to do better. *passes out hugs*

(lj)VANI_NESSA LOVES ME.

Shiny, shiny Rodimus/Galvatron sparkbond fic! And I put those in that order because, regardless of appearances, Rodimus definitely came out on top this time. ^_^

*squeaks and bounces and squees madly, eeeee!*

Don't mind me, just going a little insane here.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Put [info]deepbluesquee on the Greyhound this morning; received a call at around 8-ish saying she'd arrived at the airport in New York just fine. If she does not arrive in Cambridge in one piece, it is officially not my fault anymore. I miss her already.

...not entirely for her parent-deflecting properties. Yes, Mom, I know I'm not allowed to sleep until noon and avoid looking for a job* anymore. Just because I don't quite live up to your standards doesn't mean I don't know them, even after a brief hiatus for much-needed Hugs. I swear to whatever's-out-there if I get one more Motherly Lecture I will scream.

*Which is a whole 'nother barrel of angst, of course. Lately I've been going around in circles of "I don't even want to work in the corporate sector, I want to work on my own projects, but I can't break into the highly competitive world of Best Job Ever yet, so I need a job and will build up my portfolio and/or write on the side, but I just know I'll wind up with a stressful job that will leave me so burned out I can't even look at my own projects anymore, and I will fade to obscurity with my creativity unfulfilled! Woe!" ...Which is a load of shit, because I can't even go to bed without having drawn or written or crocheted, but my brain does not always have a ticket for the Logic Train. ...Of course, none of this may even be an issue, because so far all I've gotten is calls from the Career Services lady going "My records show you are Still Unemployed! I am Concerned! :O" (omgstfu, lady, I highly doubt you're getting a commission) and somebody from AT&T offering me a job as phone monkey, and I would truly rather fling myself in front of a train. Lol misanthrope.

Speaking of creative, I've started on my [info]areyougame and [info]kinkfest prompts. Snarky Tifa is snarky.

Om nom nom, apple with caramel sauce.

Proper update later, I promise.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It's just that I have a lot of pictures to upload, and my computer tends to make that process more of a pain in the ass than it needs to be. So I'm putting it off. -_-

In the meantime: SHINY. Hmm, costume refs to boot. Though looking at that I think I'm going to have to be verrrrry careful with my right hand, or make the cannon detachable. Otherwise I'm going to knock something over. XD ...Oh, take me, you sexy beast you.

EDIT: Because we were bored, 'Boots and I came up with a cast list for a live-action FF7. Here's the fruits of our labor, and I do mean fruits. )

September 12th, 2008

Update:

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So far, [info]deepbluesquee and I have gone to the zoo and squeed at the animals (pictures later), watched movies, made and eaten chocolate nom, cuddled and tickled and fussed each other silly, skibbled and written stuff and bunnied each other (equally mercilessly), played up to Mt. Nibel in FF7, and 'Boots taught me how to knit garter stitch.

I think we're slowly melding into one amorphous mass of fluff. I'd say 'send halp,' but really, there are worse fates. ^_^

September 8th, 2008

To whom it may concern...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...I has a 'Boots! :D

And she, it must be said, has a moogle. ^_^

September 1st, 2008

Definitely need to figure out a simpler way to do this.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Percyplush update: the legs are attached, after some hemming and hawing over what size to make his butt. Still to do: assemble the arms (about halfway done), make the scope, and add the face and other detailing. No further injuries have been sustained at this time.

I may knock off soon, though, 'cause apparently I am about to give birth. To a velociraptor.

Also, for those who were wondering: [info]deepbluesquee has made it safely to New York as of this afternoon.

EDIT: Okay, I lied. )

The things we get up to. ;)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Shockingly enough, after spending eight solid hours at Kings' Island theme park I am not sunburned at all. Considering my skin is so pale I could be perfectly camouflaged in a bowl of vanilla ice cream, this is quite a feat. It probably helped that my dear friend (lj)poptartodoom globbed sunscreen on my head. My hair is disgusting but at least I won't be in pain when I try to brush it tomorrow. ^_^

My feet are killing me, though. x_x Even with sunscreen, eight hours in a crowded theme park is still eight hours in a crowded theme park. Still, Poptart is pretty entertaining when you're waiting in line with her and the rides were worth the pain. Of course, our Beast Warsians had to tag along too, which made things even more fun. We'd decided that Rattrap and Dinobot were trying to one-up each other on the roller coasters all day (culminating with a session of synchronized barfing of oil), Cheetor would be enthusiastically dragging everyone on all the biggest rides, Silverbolt would be petrified of said rides and escape to spend the rest of the day winning plushies at the carnival games to give to Blackarachnia, Waspinator would be a hoopy frood and know where everyone's towel was (because he stole them all), Scorponok would try to take apart the rides to see how they worked, Rhinox and Optimus would chase each other on the bumper cars, and Megatron would just hang out in the Lazy River all day.

...We're weird. Further proof: we kitbashed Polly Pockets as us. Yes, really.
