Quick update, 'cause I'm tired.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So LJ is getting rid of subject lines, for no particular reason. I am now almost 100% convinced that the whole operation is run by hamsters.

I got dragged out to a comedy show on Sunday by my coworker (the same one who invited me out drinking at a lesbian bar a few weeks ago. First time doing anything of the kind). In matching penguin footie pajamas, no less. Because apparently that's a Thing with off-Renfest comedy shows. There are photos... somewhere.

Also, I wrote robots getting into a snowball fight. Happy Winterthing.

EDIT: ALMOST FORGOT. I got one of those 'your content may be copyrighted' notices from YouTube about my Beast Wars on the Dance Floor vid. I'm... stickin' it to the man? XD

This is why I mirror on IJ.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Transfandom on IJ is all *crickets chirp* right now, but - well, am I the last person to hear about this?

Short version: From what I've investigated in the past hour or so, it looks like LiveJournal is now a client of Driving Revenue - their "Affiliate vB" program is exactly what is going on; they're secretly redirecting links to any e-commerce sites (or anything that looks like it might be a link to an e-commerce site) and replacing affiilate IDs with their own. (This is likely against many of these sites' TOS, by the way. It's almost certainly against Amazon's.) (from Dreamwidth)

I've already opted out (secret way to do it is here), but LJadmin assurances are not reassuring.

Need more Transfans on IJ. Maybe I should start a tfs_100 or beastwars_100 community.

(Dammit, I can't believe I just gave LJ money for icons.)

Feeling a bit insulted? Well, maybe.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Geez, what is up with all the fanfiction hate on (lj)metaquotes lately? It's like every time something even remotely related to fandom gets quoted, everybody feels the need to pile on in a Great Big Wankfest of Superiority.

I'M SORRY WE EXIST, INTERNETS. I'M SURE YOUR HOBBIES ARE MUCH MORE WORTHY OF RESPECT THAN OURS.

July 30th, 2009

Oh, very well.

This doesn't imply promises, you understand. Just... willingness to be inspired.

The "You Should Write..." Meme!

(on LJ, natch)

June 11th, 2009

Yes, this is what I went to graphic design school for. XD

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Tomorrow I get to go to my mom's school for their end-of-year party and do face-painting for the kids in her class. If I get there early enough, I might get to read them a story too. ^_^ ...And hopefully Mom will save me a popsicle. :D

And now, for your Shamless Plug portion of the evening:

Shoyu Ramen Western, or, How Ryuuki Earned His Cowboy Hat - Story of Saiunkoku, no sex, but lots of crossdressing and Western-style hijinks.
The Angel's Sweet Curse - the Bible, Michael/Lilith, and now you know why I'm going to hell.
So Lost Together - Galvatron/Rodimus, exorcising each others' demons just a little bit.
Patience and Practice - Power Rangers, Jason/Billy being cute.
Insatiable - Transformers G1; Galvatron/Rodimus/Cyclonus in various combinations. In which Cyc and Roddy try and fail to wear Galvatron out.
Into the Wild Black - Transformers G1; a pirate AU, in which Jazz saves the world by being utterly shameless. ^_^

And, and, fics by Other People!

Ten Reasons Why Iruka Thinks He Might Hate Kakashi - Naruto, Iruka/Kakashi. The pitfalls of dating, when your intended is an utter perv.
Wasted Time - The Doctor, Q, Marty McFly, and Vector Prime sitting around bitching. XD
Shots and Stories - FFVII, Tifa tending bar. Funny and sweet in a heartbreaking sort of way.
The Key - Robin Hood: Men In Tights, Robin/Marian, exactly as hilariously awesome as it sounds. This was one of my prompts. ^_^
Upping the Ante - Phoenix Wright, Nick/Miles, short and sexy. Nick getting the upper hand, so to speak. ;)
Just Like Flying - G1, Silverbolt/Slingshot, sparksex, and zomg. Just. *flail*

And now, if y'all will excuse me, I've got some serious porning to do. >)

June 8th, 2009

I've crossed the streams something awful, you guys. XD

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So there are big tanks full of green liquid in Team Galactic Headquarters in Pokemon Diamond. My brain, of course, went straight to 'Mako tubes' and now I'm picturing a Pokemon!Sephiroth running around in a cloud of Mewtwo-like angst. It doesn't help that I already have a bitty Pokemon-trainer OC in my head, yo.

The enemy SEPHIROTH used SKEWER!

A critical hit!

AERIS fainted!


---------or---------


FANGIRL used SLASH!

It's super effective!




In other news, springkink is going swimmingly. I'll troll shamelessly for comments later. >_>

May 29th, 2009

Ohgod, weekend.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
They've been setting up for the fair downtown all week. Traffic and parking is kerazy down by my work, yo. They actually issued us all parking passes for the teeny-weeny gravel lot that also serves as the dogs' poop lot. And there's strange men in hard hats doing arcane things all over the area. Hard hats, guys. If I see a guy with an open shirt, a beer belly, and yellow galoshes, I will not be responsible for my actions. ...But in any case, I have spotted a Ferris wheel and a merry-go-round, so it's already worth the price of admission. So I'll be popping down there tomorrow or Sunday. There may be pictures.

Speaking of work, there is an English bulldog named Hemingway who is the coolest dog in the world. I can't even express how awesome he is.

Another day, and the wank goes on. Frankly, I'm hip-deep in my springkink right now so I don't care. ^_^ Current count: five down, nine to go, and number six is puttering along nicely due to Jazz being such an enormous slut. *hearts him so much*

May 28th, 2009

Wank? In MY robot sex community? It's more likely than you think!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
The Internet: where nothing is too small to argue over. Warnings for mild brain-breakage, if you are not an active member of the Transformers porn scene. )

This shit is cutting into my (lj)springkink time, dammit. *grumpymoogle*

May 20th, 2009

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*

May 19th, 2009

Not fishing for compliments, here.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
But, if you are so inclined...

THE ANONYMOUS WRITING FEEDBACK MEME

(on lj)

In other news, guys, the TF Kink Meme actually broke the comment barrier. They're going to have to make another one. How wild is this? XD I love my fandom, really I do. We're a bunch of raging pervs.

This makes me want to write pooooorn. To celebrate. Not that I haven't been writing it at work already, of course.

May 18th, 2009

Because I promised I would.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Vulcan pickup lines! XD

(*goes :D at [info]deepbluesquee*)

Also, I reeeeeaaaaally need to start getting some exercise again. My DDR pad is stuck in storage until July, and if I wait that long to get moving again I'll wind up a blimp. -_- And my bike needs to be worked on before I can use it again. I suppose I could Walk, but that tends to lead to jogging. (I hate jogging.)

Maybe I can con my parents into getting DDR for the Wii. Or hell, use my tax refund for it. ^_^

April 19th, 2009

Though they haven't been officially accepted yet...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...here are the springkink prompts I chose.

What have I let myself in for? )

...and now you know why I am doomed to die. XD I've been mainlining Saiunkoku Monogatari all weekend, and I've got a good start on the first one. Chasing bandits through the Old West! Horses! Hijinks! Prairie justice! ...not much porn though. -_-

April 15th, 2009

It wasn't Jenova that drove Seph mad.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It was that he realized he'd taken on too many springkink prompts and was going to die. XDDD

I'll post the master list (along with prompts that I wish I could have taken, but someone else is going to have to do it for me, hint hint) once I get confirmations. For now, I have requested fourteen, which is more than I have ever done before, and this when I might be getting a second job soon. Which I have been talked into attempting, between my flists and my mom, even though the thought of working retail again, especially in addition to the dog place, makes me want to freaking cry. I have a feeling most of these are going to be short. Especially since I don't want to stop working on my current ongoing projects in the meantime.

...look, I've got to do something irresponsible, or what's the point of being young?

In other news, one of the ladies at work has adopted an orphaned baby squirrel. He's so young his eyes haven't opened yet, and she sits at her desk and feeds him from a dropper. I got to hold him briefly.

April 14th, 2009

Wark wark kweh.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I didn't get bitten today. That's already an improvement over yesterday, but the day is still young.

(Not hard enough to leave marks, before anyone panics.)

I noticed the other day that the local Bookstore is hiring, and... gods help me, I must be desperate because I'm thinking about applying. Two jobs are enough that I could move out and support myself, right? Independence is a powerful lure! ...except, that would be it for my Internet life. No free time to chat with 'Boots of an afternoon, or write, or do silly memes. I'd be lucky if I found time to crochet or play video games. No more nap. I'm always so tired when I come home from my long day at my current job, and that's only once a week - if I have to do that every day I'd never have the energy for anything else.

I don't want to live like that, guys. Would it be worth it?

In other news, (lj)springkink is driving me crazy. So many addictive prompts! *whimper* ...see, this is why I need a sugar daddy/mama.

March 23rd, 2009

...Except that I'm a bad person.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I am so, so tempted to submit a pic to (lj)ljsecret naming the Venus of Willendorf as my thinspiration.

I'm not sure what this says about me.

March 13th, 2009

Oh my god, I have been a Transformers fan way too long.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Am I the only one whose first instinct was "awww must hug"?

Though I'm going to be scared of buttons for a while.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Mom took me Out today, apparently partly because I've been morose. Which - well, yeah. -_- Anyway, it was nice - got our hair cut and went to see Coraline. I enjoyed the movie quite a bit; Mom fell asleep during the second half. XD But she says she enjoyed what she saw of it, so that's all right. ...She asked me at one point if I wanted an Other Mother too. I told her I had enough trouble with the one I already had. She laughed.

Anyway, look! More Five Questions! These are from a [info]deepbluesquee.

Y'all know the drill. )

In other news, for those who are still on LJ, Springkink is doing a anonymous kink meme. It's only on until 11:59 tomorrow night, so go! Prompt! Write! And see if you can spot the ones I contributed. ;P

...I better go write some [info]ffvii_100 drabbles. *scurries*

December 16th, 2008

Eeee, kitty.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Day 4: Today I made a new friend - an absolutely beautiful cat named Zen. She's smaller and more finely-built than most cats, with beautiful dark brown stripes on pale tan fur. I'd let Mom borrow my camera, otherwise I would've tried to sneak a picture of her... anyway, she's a total and utter sweetheart and I was upstairs loving on her every chance I got. ^_^;;; I'll be sad when she leaves tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have time to get one last cuddle in.

You know, having this job has really driven home how much more comfortable with animals I am than with people. I can rattle off the names, breeds, health issues, likes and dislikes of every animal I take care of, but I still barely remember the receptionists' names. They're all perfectly nice people and have been nothing but friendly to me, but I just... haven't connected with them, I guess. Of course, I never really figured out the secret to making human friends. Animals are less complicated. And less likely to shred your self-esteem for their own amusement, but that's neither here nor there.

In other news, I'm linking this for my own reference, because it makes me feel like writing again.

June 27th, 2008

Well, I didn't burst into tears today.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
And I even got my parents a card for their anniversary. :D ...of course, I ran into them on the way to the bookstore, so it's not as if I could play it off like I'd had it for weeks. Dammit. ;P Anyway, I wrote in the card that I'd take them out to breakfast one day, so there you have it. Instant present, no guilt. ;)

Also, I may be insane. But it's for a good cause! :D

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I shall go collapse.

Things that make moogle cry.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
In ascending order of "things that actually, y'know, affect other people."

Item 1: My professor pulled me aside today and essentially told me that my projects were crap and I'd have to redo them both. In retrospect, it shouldn't have been as big of a shock as it was. I'm grateful that I even have the chance to redo them, even if it means staying after class. Still, not a happy thing to be told. - She asked me if doing two majors was putting an unfair amount of pressure on me. I told her that it's a lot, that doesn't mean it's unfair. This is what I've decided to do. Even if it kills me.

Item 2: Our new masters, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to do away with the option to create Basic accounts. They call this "streamlining the setup process for new users." LJ users call it bullshit. I call it "really, really glad I followed [info]dragovianknight to IJ, and wanting to tempt all my LJ friends over there with me." IJ does not have near enough Transformers fans, y'all. This needs to be fixed. Also, I should probably look into roleplay communities on IJ. ...Not that I'm giving up on LJ yet. They just own the servers; the real stuff - the content - that's ours.

Item 3: Oklahoma representative Sally Kern goes on an anti-gay tirade of epic proportions. Guys, when you listen to this, keep in mind between projectile-vomiting sessions that this is what they actually believe. And she's not just some crank bitching over the Internet - she's in a leadership position, speaking as a leader.

On the upside, today my new psychiatrist doubled my dosage of happy pills.
