Also, self? YOU CAN'T AFFORD ANOTHER HOBBY. Hell, you can't afford the ones you have now.

So I've been seized with the urge to kitbash: specifically, to kitbash small girl dolls into various fanchars. (Because there will be at least one toy of my stupid little self-inserts in existence, and they will be MINE ALL MINE.) Think what Wayward does with the Polly Pockets, only likely with a lot more fail.

Problem with Polly Pockets: 1), all of them have these HI I AM ON BUTTLOADS OF UPPERS RITE NAO expressions on their faces which kind of scare me, and 2) I want the kind with bendable elbows, which seem to have been phased out of existence. I can't even find them on Ebay.

And all the other dolls of the proper size are frankly kind of terrifying. LaLaLoopsy? Yeah, I don't want the Coraline versions of my girls. Other Mother can keep her slagging claws off. And the less said about Bratz the better.

(I kind of wish Monster High would make small versions. I don't think they'd work for what I have in mind, but man that'd be cute.)

Enh. I could always do amigurumi, I guess. Small amigurumi. It'd probably be easier.

Toy advice?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So, I have a birthday coming up. I also have a long trip coming up, and I'd like to not have to monopolize a Certain Someone's laptop every time I want to check my email. So I'm contemplating asking for either a tablet or a netbook for my birthday.

The iPad, of course, was the first thing to come to mind. I have a Mac already and I love it to pieces, so having something from the same family appeals. The iPad looks very shiny and I think I could fall in love with it, except... the lack of Flash and the lack of multitasking are kind of dealbreakers for me. When I get on the Internet, I want the whole Internet, dammit. And I want my tabbed browsing and to chat on IM while checking my blogs AND working on fic in Googledocs. I don't think that's too much to ask. And so far my search for Other Tablet reviews have been dissatisfactory - "well, they're good, but they're no iPad" seems to be the most anyone will say.

So apparently what I want is a netbook, which is fine, except I can't find anything too informative on those either. And I kind of ragequit the third time one of those netbook review sites shoved a popup in my face. (Hmm, maybe the lack of Flash isn't such a bad thing.)

Can any netbook or tablet owners help me out? I'd like something cheap and reliable and fairly small. It's okay if it's not powerful, I probably wouldn't notice. WiFi only, I don't want to have to pay a monthly fee to make my toys work. Also, is there some store you recommend to go out and try these fancy machines, see if I fall in love?

Playing around with shiny toys.

That usually means something pervy, with me. ;)

First, the continuing Sexy Rumpus Atop the Dresser: It turns out Cyclonus is much better at kneeling than Roddy is. )

Aaaaaand icons! These three are by (lj)lady_katana4544's request for the TF:P challenge hosted by (lj)kapricia.

This is what's going on on my dresser right now.

Cut for - well, about what you'd expect from me when you give me toys of my crack OT4. )

Stuff I need to do tomorrow, for my own reference: make more materia pendants, grocery shop, pay my car tax and student loan, fill out my health insurance paperwork, work on the mess left behind at my parents' house, and try to repair my broken writing and art mojo.

Maybe if I post it publically it'll keep me honest.

The Mooglenest: grand tour!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I finally got all my toys (that I could find) arranged to my liking, so.....



It's small, but it's home. )

Sorta having a little too much fun right now. Don't worry, it'll pass. ^_^

I'm not allowed to have shiny things. *sulks*

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Moving all my crap from my parents' place to the Mooglenest is an ongoing process, and on Sunday I sorted through my toys. I'd been keeping the vast majority of them in a big box in the basement, because at the time I moved in I thought I'd only be there a few months at most before I got a decent job in the graphic design field... well. We all know how that turned out.

But what I'm upset about right now is that I know I'm missing some of my favorite toys, mostly Classics TFs. Great big box of toys I haven't touched in two years and some of my best ones got up and walked away! *disgruntled flail* I mean, I'm running out of shelf space as it is, but it's the principle of the thing. (I liked those toys, dammit.)

Also, if I could squeeze a few words of writing out tonight that would be awesome.

I'm so predictable.

DO WANT. Shiny, shiny Primes! Shiny slashable Primes.

(Also, how many fic/smut possibilities are there inherent in this? Transformers: if you don't have a cape kink, we can help you develop one.)

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.

Well, now I've been to the Cherry Blossom Festival.

*crosses off item on list* Done! I don't ever need to do it again.

TL;DR: It was fun, but not quite worth the hassle. PICTURE HEAVY! )

Oh my god, I am a sheeeeeeep.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
But, but, I can't resist this one:

Give me a character from any fandom or original work of mine, and I will talk about what he or she or it is like in bed.

(Blame (lj)vani_nessa.)

In other news, I picked up two games for ten bucks each at Kmart yesterday (gimme a break, I've spent like zero of my Christmas money so far). One is Geometry Wars Galaxies, which I suck at but it's oddly soothing anyway. XD Maybe I'll make a habit of playing it before bed. And the other is DDR Supernova. I finally dragged out my dance pad after about a six-month hiatus this weekend. I suck at that too (just need to get back into practice!) but at least I'm getting some exercise. Gee, all I need is a job and a Place of my own and it'll be almost like I'm socially acceptable. ;P

I also picked up Classics Hound and Ironhide. I have to admit, the major draw was that Hound came with Ravage. XD

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. )

Halp. (Or: A List of Things That Are Swimming Around In My Brain.)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
First: How cute is this? TRANSFORMING ROLLER, U GUYZ. (okay, they call him Rollar, but screw that.) I want to pick him up and hug him.

Second: Added another plotbunny to my hutch. I want to write what happened during Roddy's little playdate with the Decepticons in (lj)childofatlantis's and my round robot. (No, it wasn't sex. Exclusively.) >_> Look, I'm getting some really pretty images, all right? Leave me alone.

Third, related: I have got to get some priorities straightened out on my writing. If nothing else, if I don't get back in the saddle with TF/Mythbusters soon the series will end before I finish the damn thing.

Fourth, further to above: I may not have a choice right now. Fluffiroth-angst, it compels me.

Fifth, possibly affected by above: I could use a job. Barring that, a hug and someone telling me that I'm not doomed to live in my parents' basement forever.

Sixth, apropos of probably nothing: I first got this song (warning, Axel/Roxas shounen-ai pix set to it- look, just put it in another tab and listen) as a Jenova-to-Sephiroth theme, so if you think of it in that way the lyrics are really disturbing, but oh my lord it's such a beautiful song. If I had that in my head I'm not so sure I wouldn't follow it either.

Seventh, apropos of yesterday: I really need to stop accepting the free samples they wave at you in mall food courts. That's how they hook you. Five minutes later you're sitting down with a plateful of chicken and limp, under-flavored noodles and thinking, "welp, there goes another year of my life to cholesterol poisoning." God, chinese food is crack. -_-

Eighth, speaking of crack: there was a D.A.R.E. booth set up outside of Michael's today. I appreciate what they're trying to do and all, but guys, Hasbro got to me long before you did.
