Asylum 4

I went all the way to England so that Lucifer could tear a big ol hole in my pack of gum.

well, that wasn't the only reason. X)

SO, I HAVE RETURNED.
SICK, NO LESS.
DAMNIT.

i can't tell if its con crud, travel crud, your best friend was sick before you left crud, or some other kind of crud, but its crud nevertheless XP laaaaame. and while i'd love to write up a con report for the AMAZING weekend i had, i'm having a hard time braining this week due to dizziness, throat pain, all around tired to the boneness, and falling asleep with my eyes open. yikes. never done that one before.

BUT, on the plus side, i escaped from London with a volcano quick on my heels *breathes* and made it back pretty much in one piece aside from the whole sick thing. and really, its a small price to pay for the wonderful time i had. i met some incredible human beings, from actors to staff to just plain ol regular folk alike, and i will cherish that for years to come. i had a great deal of trust given to me as staff this year and i'm pleased to say that it was maintained throughout the weekend. i got to assist the actors in their comings and goings, speak with them one on one whenever they felt like a conversation, and generally make sure they were ok and not being harassed. which was pretty damn cool. i worked my ass off as much as they let me, and i think i came away the better for it <3

again, i'll go into more detail later when i can think straight and i'm not hopped up on cold/flu meds. work itself is hard enough to get through right now, yeesh.

DISCLAIMER OF DISCLAIMING
to be clear, YES i talked a great deal with the actors as a staff member and personal assistant, and NO i will not be sharing everything that was discussed. i was granted a great deal of respect for both their time and their words (and the fact that people tend to forget i'm in the room when they're speaking for some reason), and that respect will be upheld. what i'm going to be reporting on is what happened to ME. cause its my journal, and that's what i do. you want gossip on these guys? go somewhere else.

oogg, and that's where my braining power ends.

although, i wasn't kidding about the gum thing. Mark Pellegrino (he plays Lucifer on SPN) wanted a piece of mint gum in the green room, so i offered him mine. (cause i carry it EVERYWHERE) it was one of those trident packs with the back flap thing that always opens in your bag and dumps them everywhere. he, however, was so tired that he didn't notice this and he tried opening it from the side. so i stood there for a minute, debating just how rudedeadly it would be to point out to Lucifer that he was doing it wrong...when he finally looked at me, defeated, and said he was having some issues. whereas i then hesitantly took the opportunity to point out the great big flap on the back.
he got his gum, after pausing and giving me this look that's difficult to describe aside from how tired, amused and defeated he was at the same time. i gave him a smile of condolence before he thanked me for the gum and went to his q&a. lol, the poor dude.
on the other hand though, since there was now a great big hole in the side of the pack, my gum wouldn't stop spilling all damn weekend.
worth it? probably.

more stories to come X) especially about the artwork and some AMAZING and EMBARRASSING blackmail worthy pictures XD
this is my karma, making up for the past few weeks of suck with a single weekend of amazing. i srsly don't know what i did to be so lucky <3
to be continued...
oatmeal_queen: (patrick stewart squee)
gah, falling behind. DEAR MAY, WHY SO BUSY. yikes.

so, in ironic news, after fighting with the apartment office and being obnoxiously belittled by the suits who think i don't know my ass from my elbow, i have air conditioning. \o/
which, of course, means that the entirety of this week was a balmy 60 degrees or so, and i never once turned it on.
of course.
but, as M reassures me, its the principle of the thing, and i don't regret putting my foot down. they're doing the second bed bug spray this weekend and all my crap is moved all over the place again so that they can get it over with. if this happens again though, my neighbors are getting an H2SO4 care package. complete with bow. cause i'm sweet like that.

In awesometime news, things aren't sucking as much anymore. WHICH IS GREAT, LEMME TELL YOU.

I took my mother to King's Dominion over the weekend for a nice change of pace to mother's day and had the most amazing time in the history of amazing. no, really, i can challenge this. For those of you who know me, or have been following along with my recent surgery and weight loss struggles, one of the biggest things i've wanted to be able to do is ride as many roller coasters as i can. not because i just barely fit in them and can, but because of the strength of my courage. and last weekend? there wasn't a single coaster i didn't fit in. so i got to pick them according to whether or not i'd chicken out instead of the size of my ass.

it was, in short, UNBELIEVABLE. i was beside myself at just how easy it was to fit in and just be normal, for once in my life. i loved it so damn much, and was grateful that i made it through the entire day without once bawling like a little girl when i found out (at least til i got home, lol. stupid chick flick moments) after all the years of going with M and her family to amusement parks and just wishing and hoping that i could ride everything with her without having to do that horrifying walk of shame, i finally got to do EXACTLY THAT.

and there are no words to describe how grateful i am. if i never lose another pound, i will be happy being just...normal sized, for the rest of my life. i don't wanna be a stick, i just want to blend. and i did, and it was wonderful. no one stared at me, barely anyone even knew i was standing there and i LOVED IT. <3

aaaaaand finally, in other news:
I'm going to London.
TONIGHT.
sweet fancy moses.
if anyone else is going to be attending Asylum 4 this weekend, well, APPARENTLY SO AM I. AGAIN. last minute like whoah. but feel free to chat it up if you see me there! i'll be that weirdo in the blue and brown bunnyhat, just like last year ^___^ probably running around helping staff <3

hopefully, my art will be there too, but that depends on whether or not they listened to me this time about printers screwing things up. Cause that never happens, amirite?

wdghjklghlqeg i'm so not ready for this x_x FLYING. DO NOT WANT.

AND OF COURSE I'M MISSING THE SPN SEASON FINALE. OF COURSE. DAMNITALL.
anyone who spoils me gets stabbed, i'm not even kidding.

i have a ton of replies to leave for the kittenCas!fic i wrote for the Dean/Cas exchange (yeah, that was totally me. i'm not ashamed, i can admit it) buuuuut slightly distracted. long work days and crazy tiems had to make up for the time i'm taking off, so yeah. internet, que?
i'll get around to it, promise. :)

cause i'm leeeeeavin, on a jet plane. i don't know when i'll be back again...(monday, actually.)
oatmeal_queen: (Izma strangle)
Update on the AC situation is sort of in limbo.
Not because i didn't go to the office or anything, but because i'm waiting to see if what they told me today is Actually What They Mean To Do.

of which, i've been duped before. )

In other news, Iron Man 2 thursday midnight showing tickets for me and M, GOT. friday morning is gonna suuuuck, but i don't care XD i need more Stark in my life.

also, apparently i wasn't as done with the asylum commissions as i thought? x_x LAST MINUTE GUESTS AHOY. at least it's an easy one tho, so i know what i'm doing all of tonight. possible change of plans for next weekend too...tho not completely certain yet. May is gonna be the death of me.

I'm thinking i'm gonna do King's Dominion this weekend hell or high water. Cause i really do just wanna go, and i wanna do something with my mom for mother's day since i can't remember the last time we did something that wasn't church XP we'll see how things pan out with M's poor mama. and with poor M too, actually, since she is very sick :( *gives her tea and kittens*

On monday night i dreamed about tornadoes at my grandmother's house. which i didn't really think much of, cause well, (1) dream, and (b) my grandparents living in upstate new york. like, syracuse area upstate new york.
so i get an email from my mother last night to let me know that all of the great big willow trees are down at my grandparents place along with a bit more damage too cause of a freak mini tornado disaster that nearly took out their house.
.____. que?

my life is so weird.
but it better be well air-conditioned when i get home 8|
oatmeal_queen: (captain warp factor fuck you)
ugh, the E feels ill.

and no, not in the bacterial infectious sort of way, just in general. cause srsly, the past two weeks have been like a great big running gag. but there's no punchline. and there really needs to be one by now.

on the plus side, the commissions are finished. Done and done, art for Asylum 4 and Asylum Europe are out of my head, out of my sketchbook and off my computer. Done.

Also good, even though i don't get to go to England, I'm going to NYC instead. sweet. happy b-day to the sako.

i'll be working on a comic project as soon as i can get character sketches done and that'll last for a bit too, but won't be as manic as this last thing was. so yay for things to work on.

so yes, the stress of the commissions is over. and no, it wasn't -that- bad.
WHAT MADE IT BAD, was everything else happening at the same friggen time.

This is what i'll call 'an understandable reason for rage' )

EDIT: i called. they said the manager will be in meetings all day today and doesn't have time for me. he'll call me when he's ready, probably tomorrow.

or probably never. assholes. FUCKSHITCUNT I HATE THIS.
oatmeal_queen: (raphael)
*sigh*

so this week wasn't so hot afterall. It was a decent hope? I guess? MEH.

Still working my ass off and still stuck with an obnoxious deadline for these convention pics. it looks like i won't get to go to England this year tho :( woe. there's still a chance for Germany, but my optimism stopped a week ago. if anything, i'll be making an impossible deadline that neither i nor my friends thought i could make, and that's worth something at least.
that, and even if i don't get to cross the Big Blue, i'll still get paid. score.
tho i would have loved to see my friends again ;__; (no, actors are not friends, i mean other fans i met last year)

although, M is right. As nice as these guys are, they are easily distracted with everything else going on with the con and working with them for art is a PAIN and an organizational nightmare. i am such a glutton for punishment, ngl, otherwise why the hell else would i be doing this x_x art doesn't just pop out of my hand in a few minutes, fully colored and print-ready. IT TAKES SOME TIME.
but they really are nice guys, so its hard to stay mad. i'll remain detachedly irritated til its done then.

They did offer for me to come to the con in October, which would be cool, but i'm gonna be down in the middle of the grand canyon by then. so no dice.

the internet in my apartment is finally back up to working order, as it has been slow and annoying all damn week until last night. my stupid computer couldn't find the network for the life of him until i pulled out my laptop to see if it was perhaps the router. the laptop found it instantly, and suddenly my desktop got jealous and found it too! x_x wtf desktop.
so that's one less annoying thing.
after this week is done tho, i think i'm gonna stay off of my home computer after work for a few days or so to detox. stuffing my face in my sketchbook sounds like an awesome idea, especially since i still have concepts to do for [livejournal.com profile] psychosako, among other things. my poor eyes need to stare at something that isn't a computer monitor, kthnx.

sooooo many things have been niggling at me for the past week and a half to sit myself down and start writing about angels again. srsly. it's like i wake up with it and go to sleep with it now, and its beginning to get bloody persistent. the only problem with that, is that if i do go back into writing The Story again, that'll be it. It'll be all-time-consuming and i won't wanna do much else, such as previous writing experience has taught me.
if anything tho, i need to outline that bitch from the beginning. reorganize and put some kind of order into it to make some sense out of the convoluted. my writing style has changed a GREAT DEAL since we first started it, so there's a whole friggen lot of it that'll need rewrites. possibly the whole thing. not that i mind, but that's a lot of words.

inspiration is a double-edged sword, yo.

it's SPFNthursday! WOO!
oatmeal_queen: (suck at photoshop)
So this week is actually shaping up to be better than last. thankyou, whatever deity may be out there, cause srsly, i couldn't take another train wreck like that.

my apartment is back to...i wanna say decent working order? i guess? the complex was apparently under the assumption that if you had your place sprayed for bugs once, having moved everything you own away from the walls and into the middle of the damn room, you would then of course KEEP IT ALL THERE FOR THREE WEEKS FOR WHEN THEY COME BACK.
which is ludicrous. srsly. i live in a one bedroom place with a decent amount of belongings, and there's no way in hell i could live that way for three weeks. fuck that. and i told them this, since they neglected to give me any kind of information after it was done as to whether or not i had the all clear. assholes. your wormy apologies make nothing better, especially since all of the bugs came from my stupid neighbors who brought them in then had the audacity to complain about it.
my ratties and my fish are still over at M's place and i miss them @.@

they finally fixed the ceiling fan-o-death in my breakfast nook (no, really, it sounded like the kind of fan you'd hear at the end of a horror movie where the protagonist is trying his damnedest to knock the killer into it and save the world. loud metal on metal screeching, it was amazingly terrifying.) but my dishwasher apparently needs a part ordered so that it drains correctly, and is not fixed yet. i'll take what i can get at this point.

the commissions i'm doing for this year's Asylum conventions* (note the plural) are NEARLY DONE OMGYAY. even with all the crap going on, i still managed to work my ass off for this crazy deadline and i cannot wait til i get through it. SO.CLOSE.NGGGGGGHHHH.
my writing muse has been niggling at the back of my head this whole time tho, and i fear the day she becomes impossible to ignore. one more week, that's all i ask, then i'll slash things, i promise.

my awesome boyfriend gave me Left 4 Dead 2 and i can't even touch it yet cause of all the crap i have due. ;___; May is gonna be nutz.

got an email from the guys who're sending me my first issue of the Last Unicorn comic, apologizing cause its late in coming. of which, i'm ok with this, cause i forgot i pre-ordered it to begin with. so yay for things i forgot to be annoyed with!

'Dirty Jobs' is an odd show to listen to at work more than watch. At least i have a decent constitution and am entertained enough to keep playing them tho, cause damn...ew.
but i ran out of mythbusters.

its almost May! gah, there really aren't enough non-sleeping hours in the day.
cheers to a better week.

oh, and amusing work convo is amusing. )
oatmeal_queen: (spn - sam phone wtf)


totally made my afternoon.

which is nice, cause not only do i have this crazy commission to finish, but now apparently i have to upheave the entirety of my apartment tonight because they brought a dog in and he found a bedbug. all before i leave for hagerstown this weekend cause my mother is doing a church play and if i'm not there she'll guilt me forever. FML.

MAKE IT BETTER, WALKEN.

at least its thursday ;.;

oatmeal_queen: (captain apocolypse)
For all the Supernatural nerds on my f-list...
this isn't really a spoiler, although the most recent episode kinda made me notice this more than before...(thanks M)

Do the angels feel like Turks to anyone else? I mean, the suits, the weapons, how they all seem to be body guards...Public Safety Division of Heaven? y/n?

Just sayin.
I love when my nerdoms collide. X)

SO MUCH DRAWING GOING ON RIGHT NOW, I DON'T EVEN KNOW.
this commission is going to be the death of me x__x
oh, and in conclusion:
[livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws! you are amazing and i want your babies.

this is what happens when i don't get sleep.
oatmeal_queen: (omgwtfCAT)
!!!!!!!

i was on fandom!secrets. O: wts?




*sniffles* My day, it has been made.

now if only my drawing muse was still around to enjoy this...*sets out cheese*

thankyou to [livejournal.com profile] simithedemon for letting me know. see how quickly i rush to nerd of this inspiring news?
oatmeal_queen: (died from fail)
The power was out in my development tonight from 8:30 until 9:55.
SRSLY WTF.
FAIL

went over to [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's and played magic: the gathering by candlelight.

Which was fun, but wth. FML.

EDIT: crisis averted! ZOMMMMMBEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES 8D!
oatmeal_queen: (not always as awesome as i am now)
I FINISHED IT.
aaauuugghhh finally x_x after far too much delay and way too much last minute desperation, I finished the secret angels fic exchange story for the [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel com and i am DONE. D.U.N.
thanks SO friggen much to [livejournal.com profile] morgainlefay for the last minute beta too. i owe you woman, srsly.

maybe next time i'll actually write something short? i dunno. sounds difficult.

Back from a long weekend of drama and mayhem in Richmond with the Mad Kat crew, and despite the crazy amounts of unnecessary, it was also a fairly decent weekend. I really liked the Alice movie :3 honestly.

i know a lot of people are hatin on it, and me being a movie fanatic i probably should hold a bit more of an opinion than i do, but to be completely honest, i really did just like it for what it was. and that was FUN. it's a movie to make you smile, make your head tilt and fill your irises with information that isn't supposed to make sense. which it does, at different times for different people, i noticed. if you can get over the stupid hype, the big names, and try not to compare it to either the books or previous movies (general knowledge of Looking Glass aside), its very easy to slip into the movie and simply find it fascinating. Which i did, so i was not disappointed.

That, and Christopher fucking Lee as the Jabberwock. Heyall yes. i lamented his lack of dialogue once introduced.

I wouldn't mind seeing it again, but of course, i'd still like to see Shutter Island again X) silly poor E, why do you have no moneys?

CLASH OF THE TITANS NEXT MONTH. I AM ALREADY THERE.

what SUCKED about the movie (or at least the time around when we watched it), was the strangely ironic incident that took place afterwards where gravity saw fit to trip me up the stairs. i went headfirst into a gaggle of humans, but not until after slamming my knee into the cement steps, straight across the bone.
ouch.
oh sorry, i meant ouuuuuccccchhhhhh.

got a great big nasty bruise for my troubles too >.< damnitall.

the girls took me shopping, or as they called it, retail therapy. which is an odd and somewhat frightening concept to me, to be honest. (maybe because i worked so much retail and the idea seems hysterical? i dunno) it was fun though, and just a bit strange considering how well i fit into things now that look as if i shouldn't. and i mean, srsly look like they shouldn't. like they'd fit a doll or something.

i am no closer to getting used to the way i look now than i was a few months ago. and its still going too. i lost another five pounds this week. yeesh.

and i still keep pulling on some of my bigger clothes everyso often just for the slightest bit of normalcy that i don't see anymore. it's all in my head, and i know it, but when there's the image of something familiar in your head, something you've known all your life and expect to see whenever you look for it...but now its not there? you kinda freak out a little.
So yeah. there's that.

but looking nice is, dare i say, fun. didn't get to do much of that when i was younger.

ugh, far too little sleep i need to catch up on z_z so far, March hasn't been all that unforgiving yet...but it did just start. I'm staying cautiously optimistic. and not looking forward to wednesday at all.
Distractions. I needs them. Maybe i'll trick myself into desperately writing something again XD cause shit that was distracting x__x
oatmeal_queen: (head tilt ftw)
auuuughgawd x_x four hours of sleep just doesn't work for me anymore. srsly. goodbye college years.

One of those weird personality test thingers )

there are no words for my tired today, not to mention just how much crap i've had to do this week which is quickly rushing up on me now that its reaching the end. I miss the 'having nothing to do on the weekend' thing, i srsly do.
-Richmond early tomorrow afternoon as soon as I get off work and Kat gets her ass to DC to pick up my ass.
-STILL NOT DONE WRITING, FML. *insert expletive deletive here* see all that personality shit i posted above?? DEADLINES, DNW.
-got laundry to do today and errands to run, and all around shit to figure out before tomorrow, tho [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar saved me from having to do grocery store. i <3 you like pie woman.
-work had stupid EARLY MORNING MEETING, hence the four hours sleep, after waking up to the asshat downstairs sharing his morning cable tv with me. THNX BUT NO, REALLY >8|

i feel rushed and stretched and not as excited about this weekend as i was before, but gotta do it anyway apparently. this is why i don't make plans x__x

check please?
(i actually kinda missed bitching on the internet. let's never fight again @.@)

oh, note to self: If you don't get in all that awesome protein you need, you can't walk in a straight line. i know we've discussed this before, but srsly, you look funny. think about it.
oatmeal_queen: (worf says shuddup)
I'm alive, I swear.

I apologize to my flist for my recent silence, but RL has been FORCING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO IT like an angry little pet. The kind of pet that'll mess up the carpet if you don't stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW.

there are...like...a million people i need to reply to, send stuff to, talk to, and basically all around show some sign of life to...but haven't. Cause i'm a slacker. BUT I'M WORKIN ON IT. promise :3 took me awhile to get the internet set up, that's all.

the new place has heat (woo!), sanctuary, my new awesome fishy Lucifer (cheeky little fish too), and far less boxes than it did a few weeks ago. I even got my hands on an awesome cage so that i can finally start the process of adopting ratties <3
I've also been drawing again (gleee) and writing like crazy because my muse showed up at the last possible minute and i have me some Dean/Cas fic exchange to finish before the deadline this weekend x__x gah.

which, btw, is there anyone from the SPN fandom on my flist that would be interested in doing a speed beta for me? @__@ last minute, i know, and i'm not even done yet, but another set of eyes would be a tremendous help. ([livejournal.com profile] morgainlefay, i'm totally gonna be hitting you up if i can't find anyone. you rock socks, i hope you know)

A special thankyew to [livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws for the V-day present! <3 (thankyou sweetheart, you totally didn't have to. they were balloons!)

Forgive me [livejournal.com profile] eldanis! i didn't mean to tease you for this long! sorry i missed you at Katsu too <3 i do have art to share, promise.

and thus, back to writing with me. i colored a bit tonight at art jam, which was awesome and i missed it like whoah, but i have GOT to GET this DONE. x_x
(this post officially has little to no content. please leave a message at the beep)

[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar got her hands on the new Silent Hill game for the Wii, and even though I've only caught a little of it so far, it is already just creepy enough to keep me interested. well played, evil town =_= we meet yet again.
and oh, the ideas that stir. i don't write enough psychological horror. not nearly enough.

Alice in Wonderland in IMAX this weekend with the Mad Kat crew in Richmond. ROAD TRIP.
i still need to find a silly hat...sonofa...

OH HAI MARCH. *hisssssss*
oatmeal_queen: (fma - score)
So at lunch today, more out of curiosity than anything else, i stopped by Old Navy since its been more than obvious lately that my pants no longer fit. old navy ain't the greatest when it comes to curvy humans, but i figured a ball park would work well enough regardless and i'd know what i was working with.

In highschool, i wore a size 26/28 jeans.
Today I pulled on a size 16.

I've lost a total, to date, of 73 lbs X) GAH.
(that's since surgery on 9/16/09)

there are no words for either my utter glee or my insatiable disbelief, lol.

now if only i could AFFORD new pants, then i'd be in business. *mental note to find self a belt* damnit. anybody got any size 16's laying around they don't want anymore? 8D (as long as you're over 5'5", i'll take em)

in other news, my apartment has heat (WOO \o/) but my stove doesn't work and i'm still sick. *sniffles*
but my mood has improved tremendously thanks to an awesome weekend with an awesome boyfriend <3

as soon as i get myself really settled and comfortable in the new place, much arting will be had once again! oh, and internets, must get internets. i wanna kill me some zombies.

sunofa...

oatmeal_queen: (asfgjfgks)
ugh, cry moar )

anybody got any good news? anything? something to make me giggle, smile, laugh even? idc, anything.

Gah

oatmeal_queen: (asfgjfgks)
I apologize if I haven't responded to comments/gotten back to people I intended to recently. This week has been kicking my ass and running me over with a truck x_x repeatedly.

I'm in the process of moving from one apartment to another, my place is a mess and i have limited internet between homes :(

this was basically the reason i didn't sign up to do the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fundraising campain (which is awesome, btw, check it out!), despite the fact that i reaaaally wanted to. i just knew i wouldn't have the time and i didn't want to disappoint . So i apologize to anyone who was hoping i'd sign up.
However, a lot of really amazing artists and authors HAVE signed up, so go check it out before the bidding ends! or if anything, Misha's Minions are still collecting through UNICEF and will always take contributions, I'm sure.

anywho, since i'm at work now, i won't make this long. just know that i promise to catch up as soon as i can and i thankyou all for having patience with me <3

Gleeee

oatmeal_queen: (ewan omg porn)
Thankyou everyone who has sent me birthday wishes today!!

It was really unexpected and totally made my day to wake up to so much love, I <3 you all n____n and I love my fandom!
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
pardon the spamming ^^;

SO, if you recall this entry: Brass and Feathers Lineart which was posted awhile back for the Dean/Cas Fusion challenge that i totally didn't make the deadline for... then you'll perhaps know what the hell it is i'm posting. huzzah!
if not? oh well. tl;dr steampunk supernatural.

Everything from the lineart still applies to the color. I'm still not an engineer (despite best efforts), i still couldn't tell you how any of the doodads or widgets work in this pic, and all i did was giggle furiously while doodling everything that makes no sense. take that.
oh, but its colored 8D
FINALLY. TAKE THAT LACK OF PRODUCTIVITY.

despite the migraine, the entire thing was amazingly fun to do. i won't completely swear of backgrounds yet, but let me tell you aspiring artists, they suck. and coloring them effectively sucks more. stoopid clouds.

Mediums: pencil and sepia ink, copic markers, white gel pen, and a little touch of photoshop to fix the damn clouds and add a swanky border.

Anywho, Art. )

Also! as an added bonus (pffft) if anyone was interested, i took a few shots of this picture while it was a WIP. forgive the crudeness, i used a digital camera to take them so some aren't straight or color corrected, but you get the basic idea :3 i just figured i'd share in case anyone wanted to see how annoying (and awesome) it is to color things by hand X)
Brass and Feathers 4 shot WIP

thankyou guys for all the love and support with this pic :D it srsly means the world to me to have such an amazing audience :3 keeps my inspiration flowing <3
