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.

It's almost like I'm a grownup.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Accomplishments today: Went grocery shopping - not just for milk and a candy bar, but chicken and pasta and paper towels and grownup things. A whole cart full! ...I swear my five-year-old self was toddling along with me being Big Helper the whole time. XD (Evidence: the Transformers Animated fruit snacks. Appropriately, Megatron is apparently purple-flavored.) And I talked to the cashier. Go me! ^_^

AND. AND AND AND OMG FLIST I made foods! I mean I actually cooked! No microwave, no instant yakisoba, I made Honey Chicken Tacos ALL BY MY LITTLE SELF and THEY TASTED AWESOME. *FF victory music!* ...Mom always said that I just needed to gain experience cooking, and while I know that's true, it's apparently not all I needed. I also needed her and Dad to be out of the house so I could be free to make mistakes and curse and work through things without any Helpful Advice to worry about.

(...and there are leftovers so I get to eat it AGAIN TOMORROW. Eeee!)

Battle for the Smithsonian! XD

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Have I mentioned how much I love the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History? If they'd let me set up a cot in the gift shop, I'd totally spend a week there. I may attempt it once they open the Hall of Human Origins. I'm a bit of a geek.

The reason I gush is because my parents took me to the Museum today, as a birthday Thing. It's been a while since I've been in DC, now that I think about it - not since the Cherry Blossom Festival, which was in early April. Anyway, was a lovely time. We spent most of the day in the fossil exhibit and the Hall of Mammals. Dinosaurs! :DDD And and ancient ancestors of dolphins and horses and turtles and dogs and something that I swear is an ancient ancestor of a chocobo. XD So that was a lot of fun, and now I have a plushie whale to play with too. (Needs a name.)

And then after that there was amazingly-awesome dinner at a Korean barbecue place. Om nom nom.

.......Tired now. *thud*

EDIT: Almost forgot! I found a Chick tract entitled 'Who Is Allah?' on the Metro on the way back. It's currently stashed in a plastic bag in my purse until I figure out what to do with it. A ritualistic burning and burying of the ashes seems ideal, or I could just scan in some choice bits and let y'all mock it.

I'm feeling a lot better about things today. ^_^

My family and I don't do Valentine's Day (it's the day my grandpa died, among other reasons), but Mom's a second-grade teacher, and what's she going to do, refuse to accept the cards and candy her adoring little sprogs or their parents shower her with? So Mom came home last night with like three gift bags full of processed sugar, and as she is a firm believer of "only eat it if it's worth the calories," she gave me all the stuff she didn't like.

I've been sitting here gorging myself on Pixie Stiks and Fun Dip all afternoon. I'm going to be bouncing off the walls, guys. ^____^

Ah, nostalgia in powdered candy form... *licklick*

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words yesterday. I feel a bit better now. ...Well. More able to deal with this, at least, which is not exactly the same thing.

Good things about today:
- My boss pulled me aside and told me that I was doing a good job. I managed to hold in my squee until I was alone... except for the cats, and they probably think I'm nuts now. XD So, nothing new there.
- I got Inspired for a short comic, which I've been wanting to do for a while. Details forthcoming, maybe.
- I ordered a couple boxes of Girl Scout cookies. ^_^
- Leg warmers, omg. Why did they ever go out of style? They are LOVE. *toasty calves and ankles right now, yaaaay!*
- President Obama (*brief squee break*) is already getting the ball rolling on shutting down Gitmo and setting ethics standards. Jolly jumping Primus, the man does not waste time.
- This meme:

The first five people (edit: or more, if I feel like it) to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a poem, or something else written. I might sew, color, or take a specific picture. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! Also, not me!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.


Keep in mind that I have an LJ too, so if you're the fifth person to comment here, you still might not be the Fifth Person. ...Though you still might get a Something. On that note, once I'm done with said Something, I'll want to let you know via email, so drop your email addy here if I don't already have it. (If we don't email regularly, assume I don't. *is disorganized*)

Could it be...?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
What is this feeling...?

It's kinda... light. Almost floaty. But at the same time it's animating. It makes me want to run out and do something amazing.

It makes me feel like I could do something amazing.

Is it... hope?

President Obama has some sort of glamour going, I would swear. If it is enchantment, I hope it is forever.

Just watched the inauguration ceremony on TV. Can you tell? ^_^;;; (And I was warm and cuddled while I was doing it, not like those poor suckers freezing their butts off on the Mall.) Aretha Franklin and the dude what gave the benediction also rocked. But oh my god, the new President's speech. My heart is still in the lower stratosphere somewhere spinning and going "WHEEEE." I feel like I can finally be proud of my own country.

*runs around glomping everybody and giving them big smooches* :DDDD

...O hay, it's Christmas.

(Yes, I'm still up. I'm not done with Mom's blanket yet. *crochets furiously* If I hurry, I might still get a few hours' sleep before I have to go to work. But I will damn well stay up all night if I have to!)

I don't really have any deep thoughts this year. I'll save the introspection for New Years'. Just... I love you all. Thanks for sticking around and listening to me whine and encouraging my vices. ;) Stay safe and enjoy your Winterthing, whatever that entails.

Hugs, kisses, cookies and porn for all.

Love,
Moogle

Golden retriever puppy! Sweet friendly beautiful golden retriever puppyyyyyy! *hearts* Not a puppy-puppy, she was in that all-knees-and-elbows adolescent stage, but that didn't make her any less cute. I fussed her lots and played with her when we were out on our walk. ^_^

Also, note_to_dog_owner: what would possess you to name your poor pooch Puff Puff? She's got enough issues just being a chihuahua. ...*ducks*

Also also, from the 'worth reading' files: What happened to Michael Vicks' dogs, courtesy of Sports Illustrated. It made me so happy, you guys. The strength of those dogs and their caretakers is amazing. I want to give them all hugs and treats.

So [info]jlsigman has been posting one thing that makes her happy every day for 8 days and invited her flist to do the same, and since I wrote a followup fic for that Roddy/Galvatron awesomeness that (lj)vani_nessa wrote for me, today seems a good idea to take her up on that.

Day 1: The existance of Galvatron/Rodimus as a pairing makes me happy. I have a long history with it, encompassing both Joy and Drama, and it's made me some awesome friends. And it, uh, pushes all my buttons. ^_^;;;;

Chimpanzee helps raise two white tiger cubs! I adore the obvious affection on the chimp's face. *squees* And look, more pics here.

Warms my fluffy little heart, it does. ^_^ Speaking of fluffythings, I went ahead and filled out an application for the animal hospital today. So, we'll see what happens.

And also, some porn I owed (lj)sister_dear from this meme. You thought I forgot, didn't you? Well, I didn't! ;D *waggles fingers at* I was just, uh... busy. Yes. Ahem.

Anyway, this plays with the recent fandom-convention that Jazz has doorwings, he just hides them under his roof. (Look, his toy has doorwings, okay? It's perfectly legit.)

Whoa, Jazz. When'd you get wings? )

*twirls sword over head and poses victoriously* I finished my room today! :DDDD

...of course, there are still boxes of Stuff that have to go into storage for now kind of hanging out in my room, but my toys are all displayed and my bookshelf is all neat and pretty and awesome. Happy and accomplished moogle! ^_^

I also tried to get a new drivers' license today, but, uh, I couldn't prove I live here. XD That's what happens when you're a dependent. The only mail I get is my game magazine and a metric buttload of credit card offers (note to all banks everywhere: DO NOT WANT). And apparently those don't count as proof. So I'm going to get a change-of-address form at the post office tomorrow, so yes. *nods*

Still sleeping in the basement, though. We finally gave up on the Great Bedbug War and left my mattress behind, and Mom says that they're going to wait to get me a new one 'til Labor Day. I don't mind, really, the couch is plenty comfy, but the problem is there's no windows down there, so no matter how late I sleep I still feel like I'm waking up at 5 AM 'cause it's still dark. *nyeh*

Last night I stayed up 'til oh-my-Primus-o'clock in the morning porning with [info]lookingforsigns.

Today I took a brief nap and was generally happily-lethargic all day.

Sunday I shall take a day (evening, rather) trip up to Columbus with my Cincy friends.

None of these things I have been able to do for the past month or so. *flops out on bed and kicks little feet* Eeeeeee. ^_^

(There is some cleaning in my future, though. Getting ready for the Movers, dontchaknow. Which I don't mind except Mom insists on helping - she's promised she won't Go Through My Stuff, but I'm still terrified she'll find my vibrator.)

Behold the baby goslings, in all their fluffycute glory!

These turned out a lot better than I was expecting. They're very photogenic little fluffballs. ^_^

It's the first of May (and we all know what that means). It's beautiful outside, mid-70s, sunny, breezy. I'm trucking along on my schoolwork, no worries there. Aretha Franklin is wailing over my earphones. And I just took about three dozen pictures of omg fluffy baby goslings and didn't even get pecked for my trouble.

It's a good day. The only thing that would make it better would be if my uterus would quit with the Primusslagging cramps. -_-

In other news, a couple more things that get my fire going:

A rant on feminism by Tamora Pierce, one of the authors I grew up with. Is it any wonder I adore this woman? She informed a lot of my own beliefs, growing up. *hearts for eyes, shameless fangirling*

John Stewart's take on abstinence-only sex ed. YOU JUST UN-BLEW MY MIND.
