hello there internet :)

i know, i know, it's been ages, and i'm sorry about the large gap in between posts, but unfortunately it was for a few personal, irritating reasons. (and just may i say, for the lawyer who is currently stalking my LJ? eat me. no, srsly, kiss my ass and find someone else to bother. i'm through being concerned over your problems. eat a bag of dicks.)

so anyway, in all better news, things have been pretty well for me :) i'll recap later, this post happens to be for the purpose of a proposal of sorts.

most of you who know me, also know that i avoid doing commissions at all costs. not because i hate them, per se, i actually quite enjoying drawing for others, but because i feel bad charging for it and can be fairly lame when it comes to finishing them. now i know, boo hoo, what an issue, but srsly, i have a hard time with this sometimes, so therefore i avoid it.

that being said, one of my oldest and most bestest friends is going through horrible financial issues right now, and nothing seems to be getting any better anytime soon :( she lost her job last year, is in debt up to her ears, shares the deed of a house with a husband she's trying to divorce who also has no job and no money, and she's trying to be in school at the same time.
yikes.
i hate seeing what life is doing to her right now, especially since i've been so blessed recently. tho despite being poor myself, i don't have a money sucking anchor of a husband, crazy debt or a severely low paying job like she does. she's living with my mother, the poor thing.

anyway, tl;dr, i'm going to try doing what i can by seeing if there is any interest in art commissions out there. i'm talking to all my fellow fangirls out there in LJ land, would any of you be interested in commissioning me for art? i could do sketches, inked, full color, multiple characters (not so great with backgrounds), multiple fandoms, slash, fluff, (any nc-17 stuff would have to be negotiated to see if i can do it, but you're welcome to ask) and original characters with good descriptions/references. srsly, try me.

is there any interest at all? i'm also willing to offer prints of any of my existing stuff. i have art throughout a few different fandoms of supernatural, fullmetal alchemist, sailor moon, and a ton of original angel characters.

if there IS an interest, i can lay out pricing and reasonable timelines for both the drawings and the prints, but i'd like to know i could actually pull this off reasonably. I really, REALLY want to help my friend, but without commissions, i don't have much to give :( i don't mean to use the sympathy card, if really, this is the first time i've ever truly asked, but it really is for a friend in need. i think that's worth a little expended effort on my behalf.

what say you? commission me so i can help my friend? anyone? :3
oatmeal_queen: (cone of shame)
Gah.

So, a good long while back, i promised a recap of my trip to England/Asylum. yeah...so didn't get to that. my apologies if anyone was waiting for it (which, i certainly hope not because i can be really friggen boring) i am actually going to do a separate entry for that since i do have some awesome pics to share, but i'm not really gonna go into detail. sorry bout that guys, i fail, i know. i've just been hampered down with a lot of stuff recently and haven't had the time for blogging *gasp*

but hey, free moment. like, now.
RECAP, CLIFF NOTES. )

so onto inconsequential stuff.

So i saw Toy Story 3 and loved it...SPOILERS )

i've heard horrid things about Airbender, so i'm not even bothering to give the theater money for it. i'll take my chances with assistance from netflix tyvm. its how i saw g.i. joe *shudders* so i'm sticking with that. i heard twilight was better than airbender, which is the saddest thing i have ever heard.

its too damn hot for words this week. i hate running the AC all the time, but i'm on the top floor. in a hundred degree weather at the top of an apartment complex that cooks and does laundry ALL THE TIME? if not for AC, i'd be dead.
THIS IS VIRGINIA, NOT CAIRO. YUR DOIN IT WRONG.

is it friday yet? i'm ready for a road trip.
oatmeal_queen: (patrick stewart squee)
I'm still alive, i promise. finally done with being sick, so now i'm just being a slacker. i know i promised a con report and pics, but well, there's that whole slacker thing...

in other news, i found out that SIR Patrick Stewart will be attending the Philadelphia Comic Con, thus as physics action/reaction will tell you, now so will i. cause srsly. Cap'n McSexypants Picard. nuff said.
Funny enough, i had never even heard of this con before until i found out about the Stewart thing, and it's like, right up my coast, so i'm totally game. awesome and surprising lineup of scifi peeps too, considering how bad their advertising is.

annyway, going for a day. prolly in costume, depending on how masochistic i'm feeling.

speaking of guests...
amusing convo is amusing )

*goes back to slacking*

Asylum 4

oatmeal_queen: (spn - dean egads!)
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: (tedious)
SO, I has a PSP now.
Never thought that would happen, lol. But [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar upgraded her fine self and was kind enough to pass her previous one onto me. woot. i love free stuff! :D

HOWEVER, this is effective if (and only if, really) i actually have some games. Somewhere either in my place or [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's place, is my Bust a Move. which is an awesome game, but i needs moar.

any recommendations?

i love puzzle games, but not something that requires me having to buy a textbook to figure it out. not too big on the fighting/brawl stuff.
anybody ever played LocoRoco? I was looking up Katamari for the PSP (wow, that's expensive) and that one showed up too. is it any good? also, anybody actually play/own the PSP version of Katamari? I heard it was crazy hard...
i was eyeballing Patapon too. anyone got any hands on with that?

Just for shits and giggles, i randomly checked out the next installment of Silent Hill, which is actually coming out for the PSP too. i love that series, tho i've never really been able to play it since i'm not all that good at it, lol. so no, i have no allusions of thinking i'd be able to play this one, but curiosity beat the cat. at least, until i read this:

PRODUCT FEATURES:
The game watches you and adapts to your actions to create a unique experience to each player and intensify their fears.

The Game Watches You.
WHUT.

so about them puzzle games? 8D
oatmeal_queen: (copic eat babies)
Spent the 4th of July with [livejournal.com profile] psychosako and our Bellydancing troupe. we were surrounded by people setting off fireworks for like, miles around. yummy food, awesome people. no crowded, crazy DC metro.
:D

i signed up to do the Dean/Cas anonymous fic exchange, and of COURSE they gave me someone who was really awesome to write for that i am INCREDIBLY INTIMIDATED BY. gawdamnitall.
gonna do it anyway. as soon as i grow some balls.
D:

Stein played with my desktop for a bit (cleaned it mostly) and i can at least play L4D again with only the slightest bit of hiccups. as opposed to how bad it was before.
i keel zombays! and asplode ma teemates!
:D

i haven't been able to draw all weekend -.- as much as i wanted to. even writing has been sparse. i think i sapped out my muse. *slaps her cheek*
D:

My little brother's fiancé (my soon to be sister in law) called me tonight to confirm the details for their engagement party two weeks from now. coo, family weekend it is.
then she asked me to be a bridesmaid ;___;
*sniffs* uh...YES.
:D

chipped a DAMN TOOTH. on potato chips DX
aaaarrrrrggggghhhhh so.not.cool.
D:

COPIC CAME OUT WITH 12 NEW MARKERS.
*FLAIL*


I know I'm a year late, but... )
oatmeal_queen: (not always as awesome as i am now)
Ok, so.
Now that I've had a couple of days to let it all sit and stew, I think I can actually do a decent con report. Or decent enough. Like I've said previously, and let me just reiterate this, there is going to be a -lot- that I leave out.

I'd love comments and I do not mind answering questions concerning my weekend, but I will not be answering anything when it comes to personal info of the actors or anyone else I was with. Srsly, it's not worth getting worked up over and I'm not budging, so get over it.
I do have some pictures I can post of my trip in general and a couple from the bustrip, but it will be minimal. please do not ask for more, as i've gone through them very carefully and considered what should or should not be online for specific reasons.

Keep in mind that this is my personal journal, not a fanblog, a magblog or anything of the sort. I'm focusing on the ME here, cause i can and damn well should since it's MY JOURNAL.

Gawd, this is nutz that i have to write that. wth.

blah blah blah, get on with it already )

Friday )

I'm sure i'll forget about some things as i go here, so may go back to fill them in later when i remember. there was just so much x_x

but holy crap that was long-winded. tl;dr much? if you got this far, you must be bored. or really amused.
*hands you popcorn*

More to come once i pull together Saturday! it won't be as long, promise.

wow asylum

May. 31st, 2009 06:35 pm
oatmeal_queen: (whoa sign)
...
w.t.f.

did that all srsly just happen?
i mean...i didn't dream it, right? the past three days DID happen, right?

...
now that it's sunday night, and i finally have the chance to sit down and breatheat and process everything that i was lucky enough to do this weekend...i don't think i can wrap my head around it.

whatever i did to deserve the last few days, i am so incredibly grateful <3
so.friggen.tired.

some thoughts/goings on )

there's so much that i will never be able to tell *laughs* i owe them all that much.
my life is so strange. XD

::EDIT::
LOL, i found this crazy blurry picture through [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who's con post. that blotch of maroon back behind the left side of Matt? (if the pic was vertical) yeah, that's me X)
ignore that caption tho, the dude on the right is Josh, Amy's bf X) Matt was there with his fiance, not his brother. this sneaky photographer thinks they captured something great, but really, at that moment we were all comparing our freaky and gross double jointed talents. hollywood is all glamour, i tell you.
oatmeal_queen: (SPAM)
for my reference, totally update-able
(or if anyone else can think of something i'm missing, cause lord knows i'm not thinking straight.)

-DON'T PANIC
-get laptop/camera from sako
-pack. try to use the smaller suitcase if you can.
-pull together whatever sketchbooks/art stuff you're taking (YOU NEED ERASERS. GET THEM)

-email your mother every number/address/plane time you can think of, or you know you'll never hear the end of it.
-give rent/cable checks to Christie
-remember to eat
-scribble down/print out all the addresses and info you'll need.
-water your poor plants
-sew up your poor shoe
-do NOT forget the bunny hats
-do NOT forget to take that pic from the wall
-charge your ipod/laptop/phone/DS and anything else that needs it
-make sure you've got ittybitty with you in case you need those art files again
-passport!!!1!
-finish the sailormoon pics if you can
-call Kat
-RELAX

i'm debating whether or not i should actually sleep tonight, since that may increase my chances of sleeping on the plane :\ not sure about that one, since there's a possibility i won't sleep regardless -.- then that would be two nights of wtf. lame.
here's hopin i'm not sleepin on the streets once i'm there! 8D tho i hear they're cleaner than ours.
oatmeal_queen: (fma - head asplode)
x__x
Memorial Day weekend. and I've done more the past three days than i have in weeks. yikes.
on the plus side, lots of awesome stuff went down and i got outta the housemy head for some good times.
on the not so plus side, i feel pretty ill XP

on Saturday I went with [livejournal.com profile] psychosako to the VA Ren Fair. which is small, but cute, out in the middle of nowhere virginia. The most fun was had with her friends, however, half of which are in the belly dancing troupe that i've been involved with recently <3
i got some SUN. holy shit. my arms are a slightly darker shade of greenish-tan now, as opposed to the veiny pale i've been for the past two years. win.

Sunday I got to see Terminator: Salvation.
If you like the series, see it. I was not disappointed. the crazy plot holes from the first three were once again amusingly obvious even in this 4th installment, but oh well. robots kill all humans without reason gets old fast, so i was just in it for the pretty. awesome visual effects, tho the young digi-arnold was slightly creepy. ok, more than slightly.
ya know, i like christian bale, but the dude needs to try something different. musicals perhaps? i loved newsies, shutup :D

Monday was sleep in and then picnic day. I went with [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar, [livejournal.com profile] psychosako and Mama!Rachel out with [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's family for some bbq fun. Which was actually a lot more fun than i thought it would be (no offense Molly, i've just been frazzled lately) with good food, good company and HOLY SHIT DOWNPOUR. we got rained on like crazy and ended up completely drenched to the bone. Cold and soggy, we all bundled up in borrowed clothes and towels to dry off at the Stackwicks as the storm passed through. The absurdity of it all just made me laugh. It was almost refreshing X)

i've got two days til my plane leaves for europe.
Finally finished the inks on the sailor moon busts for [livejournal.com profile] ssfseiyakou and trying my damndest to get them colored before i leave x_x atleast the coloring is all thats left.
the asylum guys got the art. so all is (hopefully) well on that front. here's hoping i actually have a hotel room and conbadge to go to. aaaaauuuugggghhh

we had such awesome food this afternoon for lunch, but i spent the rest of the day feeling nauseated and have been unable to eat anything more, even if i wanted to. my nerves will one day be the death of me. here's hoping i can sleep this off and it doesn't get worse...but methinks that'll be wishful thinking until i'm in the air. *cry*

i am going to be useless at work tomorrow, damnit.
oatmeal_queen: (jumprope powerlines)
Ok, so I went and saw Star Trek a second time last night, but this time in IMAX.
and wow what a difference it makes <3
I tell you one thing, tho, if you are even the slightest bit afraid of heights? watch it in the normal theater, or at eventually at home. I have no problem with heights whatsoever and even I got a little bit of vertigo at some parts x.x them newfangled cameras is crazy.

So, second time seeing spoilers!
hey, this star trek thing is srs bzns )

all in all, wonderful to see again. and with wonderful company :3 i am so owning this movie when it comes out and THERE'D BETTER BE EXTRAS. s'all i'm sayin.
this makes me want to watch the other movies again, but all i own is from Generations on up. woe ;.;

i keep swatting my fingers to keep from joining any slash star trek communites DX augh, man. this shouldn't be this difficult to NOT do x.x the SPN fandom is crazy enough with their incest and mpreg slash XP *gags* who knows how bad StarTrek porn could get. (or how good. DAMNIT.)

which speaking of, season finale of Supernatural tonight :3 LET THE WANK BEGIN! \O/
[livejournal.com profile] rudelad737 and i are doing burgers and beer in true SPN fashion for the big blowout. if anyone else wants to come, just gimme a call :D the more the merrier!
hey [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia! you alive???!

oh, and I finally got to see the House finale. and srsly, guys, you were actually surprised by that ending? I mean...srsly? I totally saw that coming.

thus i have geeked out my quota for the year. scuse me while i go back to drawing SailorMoon and SPN angel slash XD (NOT TOGETHER.yikes)

Star Trek

May. 12th, 2009 04:51 pm
oatmeal_queen: (patrick stewart squee)
uh yeah...I kinda sorta LOVED it. :3
even as an oldschool and hardcore trekkie, i nerded most of the way through it.
heyall yes, that was worth the wait 8D

pardon me while i nerd. spoiler alert! )

Methinks I'll be seeing it again. It was easy enough to let alot of things go that stick to the strictness that is the trekky universe, but that's probably because i was waiting for something good to come around.
and something good did :3
oatmeal_queen: (lick me button)
ugh. gawd i feel ill x___X

Just got back from ACEN a few hours ago (12 hour drive to Chicago and 12 hour drive back through empty farmlands of Ohio in small car makes E something something...)

The con was decent enough. AA was a crock-o-crap, but that's mainly cause someone thought it would be a good idea to stick us in the same room and hours as the dealers room. lamesauce. that, and as always, everyone wants the fan stuff, so original characters be damned. kids these days XP
i think we broke even tho, so all is not lost.

HOWEVER
the cosplaying was much fun :3 [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar posted a few pics of me and she in her latest entry and i'm actually kinda proud of myself. cause i can tell that all the damn dieting i've been doing actually did something and i looked pretty good :D (ya know, as a dude and all) my poor hair XD

also awesome, in the dealer's room they had a setup that was selling EVERY SINGLE COPIC COLOR AND REFILL KNOWN TO MAN. thus, my paycheck is spent. u.u and i has more markers. i am weak, i know, and poor, but happy :P

also got to see [livejournal.com profile] bouncy_erbear and [livejournal.com profile] clemmontine as the only two others that could make it this year from our pile of crazyawesome that was last year. i miss you guys already!! <3

am catching up as much as my poor eyes will allow me.
i totally forgot about the whole damn different time zone thing on thursday and turned on the tv just in time to catch the last five minutes of Supernatural. which was a whole lotta AUGHWTFJUSTHAPPENED. *roll credits* @___@
so i had to wait til i got home before i could watch it. this is after passing about twenty Impala's on the trip (2009's, don't get too excited), traveling through the city of Mishawaka, Indiana (so not kidding), and that the most popular brand of milk in the Chicago area is apparently 'Dean's milk'. my life is a sitcom.

crisis averted, however, cause i just watched it. which of course left me with an AUGHWTFJUSTHAPPENED anyway. *sigh* the season finale is gonna be worse, i know it. X3

still need to get the latest ep of FMA:Brotherhood that i missed, and backlog through a million things i probably don't care about on LJ -.- so halfhearted is the key here.
i'm off work tomorow, therefore i plan on being in a coma until the early afternoon where i will promptly drag my ass out of the apartment, grab [livejournal.com profile] happytemplar, and FINALLY GO SEE STAR TREK.
screw you guys and your teasing ALL damn weekend XP you suck.

i would REALLY LOVE TO HEAR FROM THE UK CON SOMETIME SOON. how bout now? now? SOONER? *facedesk*

meh, i'm gonna curl up in bed with some World War Z until my eyes cross. *poof*

edit: asdjkl;askjgh i wasn't paying attention and missed the House finale DX FAIL.
oatmeal_queen: (Fosters Blue bluuurrggghhh)
There was a 30 degree drop in temperature from yesterday to today.

...

is there anywhere on this planet i can live and NOT get pressure migraines because of this crap?
cause srsly. wtf. i couldn't even sit at my computer without wanting to claw my eyes out. everything about yesterday SUCKED.
(except for you [livejournal.com profile] psychosako. you made my day so much less suck with the yummy food the geeking and the artiness, i ♡ u)

Bring it on ACen, i am so ready for a road trip.
oatmeal_queen: (ZOMBIES AHEAD)
It was a hundred degrees yesterday and today.
in APRIL.

and the a/c in my apartment is busted.
fuuuuuuuuuuuck
the Galileo thermometer on my desk has informed me that the current room setting is set on Hell.
Sleeping tonight is gonna be awesome.

on a better note, Video Games Live on saturday was AWESOME. I look forward to going again with my brothers in July.
ya know, july, when its supposed to be this hot. not april.
damnitall.

got my hair cut today :3 not much, but enough so that i'll be able to do Lexaeus without looking like a pineapple. just prioritizing for chicago.
i'm also down ten pounds. woo!

this would all be such a great weekend if not for the GODFORSAKENHEAT.
i want winter back ;.;
oatmeal_queen: (manga chibiusa with backpack)
NEW DAY
newdaynewdaynewday
Let's try this again. Less emo this time.
i gotta stop letting other people's troubles get me down, especially when i've got my own issues to worry about atm.

I greatly dislike wednesdays, but I'll deal. it'll be better than yesterday anyway. Last night suuuuuucked, but I called Kat and she cheered me up with her crazy. <3 you woman.
still haven't called any family, but i'm workin on it.

the commission pics are FINISHED. Or at least, I've sent off the final colored versions for approval. once i get the thumbs up, they are dun. *eep!*
so now i've got the ACEN stuff i gotta get finished for AngelJules along with whatever art i'm taking overseas at the end of May.
*phew* busybusy. which is good.

In other news, and because i'm going to happily let myself off the hook and geek out a little...
why does Misha have to be so friggen cute? I watched some of the vids from the LA supernatural con and GAWD. like i really need more reasons to turn beet red when i finally get to meet him? STOP BEING AWESOME. ACTORS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE JERKS.
ok, that is all. <3

hey [livejournal.com profile] sammywhatammy! where's that chibimoon/helios sketch?! *grabby hands*
oatmeal_queen: (whoa sign)
I'm going to England.
\O/

now if you'll excuse me, i've got two months to fit back into my old jeans.
oatmeal_queen: (olivia - cosplay me)

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Just spreading the love <3
No further reasoning necessary.

So I moved!
Thus, here I am in my new place which is a bit more than a mess right now as I try to piece things back together bit by bit. It's a little jarring, especially considering how long we were living in the previous place, but each day is a little easier than the last. It's just figuring out what order I do everything.
My new roommate is a co-worker of mine who I've known for about a year now. She's far more private than I'm used to, but that's ok. We had both kinda wished we could afford to live on our own anyway, and it almost feels like I am at this point. We stay out of each others hair except to occasionally chat. which is probably what its supposed to be like with a roomate, lol.
on the not so awesome side, she's very anti-hug :( tho there could be worse problems.
but on the awesome side, she has the most adorable kitties and it helps to ease how much i miss my Hana.

Kat just spent friday to saturday with me and it was wonderfully therapeutic. getting crap organized and just all around spending time with her and venting/laughing/having a good time, seeing as i miss her terribly. i've gotten her into supernatural too X3 so the fact that she was pushing to watch more when i hadn't even asked was awesome.

the trip to Ohio for Ohayocon was normal con stuff and a lot of fun with the usual bought of exhausting along with it. cosplayed for two out of the three days, and destroyed my poor heels in the process. x.x stupid feet. still, glad we went, and hope we get an art table for it next year ^.^

i still feel like i'm waiting for something, but i'm not sure what it is.

i AM, however, getting fairly eager to push myself back into drawing/coloring, which is incredibly relieving, to say the least. The entire time i had been in this art rut there was no real desire to pick up a pencil, but it's easing its way back into the forefront and i'm getting anxious to find my groove again. i think my muse has finally forgiven me X) (LET'S NEVER FIGHT AGAIN, OMG)

*cracks knuckles* back to work, wench!
oatmeal_queen: (spn - dean snore)
i am so utterly exhausted x.x

Went to hagerstown yesterday because my mother asked me to. Got to see family and a few good friends and that was all i needed to really pull my birthday into a nice close. my little bro wasn't there, but i'll see him on Moving Day. my older brother went out and bought my birthday gift ten minutes before he came over. he thinks i don't know, lol. X) oh well, he seemed in decent enough spirits so i was happy to see him. i made him laugh too, which was nice to hear. (just had to weed through all the other horrendously embarrassing things he spurted out and then we're all good)

so i went there and came back same day, followed up with sunday (today) for an absolute, no excuses packing day.

i have bruises EVERYWHERE.

not kidding, i checked. nice big colorful bruises on my arms, legs, torso, NECK (can't figure that one out) some pretty ones on my hands...lordy. and i'm aching, and my back hurts and my knees hurt and i feel so amazingly fantastic because i DID SOMETHING. i've spent the last four or five months being a great big fucking lump and i'm paying for it triumphantly but it feels so great. that gives me hope for pushing myself back into some kind of physical exercise soon because man do i need it. this sitting around and doing nothing crap is draining and stupid. i should have been off my ass ages ago.
man do i hurt tho, haha. i'm gonna sleep well tonight.

half my life was put into boxes today. i have three more days to finish off the rest. the kitchen is gonna be the biggest bitch of all, i think.

We leave for Ohayocon on thursday and come back monday. Moving Day is tuesday x.x i'm INSANE.
still, all in all, today was an excellent day.
i'm gonna miss this, the here and now and the people in it. it's not like they're going al that far away, but i'm gonna miss it anyway. and i'm glad i do.
i think i filled my packing quotient for the day tho. this break i deserve X)
oatmeal_queen: (fma - loud motherfucker)
So.
Birthday was ftw. I had an awesome time in NYC (as we traveled across most of it in 2 degree weather, holy crap) and generally enjoyed myself :3
it was srsly freezing though, i couldn't believe that temperature. my jaw froze. i mean, literally, i was slurring my words because of the wind, and that's, like, one of the first signs of hypothermia isn't it? O__o gawd.
i was, however, happy to continue my wishful tradition of seeing snow on my birthday. and despite how gross jersey is (no offense, all my jersey friends <3) there was a new enough layer of white fluffy snow left for my enjoyment before the air blackened it up.
([livejournal.com profile] sunseenli! i'm sorry i missed you! i tried calling and emailing you, but i think some wires got crossed somewhere :[ )

Another bday bites the dust X) good riddance. I'll celebrate ifwhen I'm sixty.

Otherwise, been trying to kick my ass into gear packing and all around psyching myself up for the move. Am both really looking forward to it, and really not. Not that moving has ever been a problem for me, but you end up with ties to certain things that can be hard to let go of.
My kitty is one of them ;_; gawd, that's gonna be so hard.
E, you SAP.

Went and saw 'My Bloody Valentine 3-D' with [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia and LOVED every bit of it. it was cheesy and gross and dumb and gross and had PORN IN 3D and was fanfriggentastic. I was laughing most of the way through the movie. which got me some weird looks, but you know what? that movie deserves to be laughed at. campy slasher fic ftw.
that, and i'll gladly take me some more jensen in 3-D. omnomnom.

Mom wants me to come home this weekend cause of the birthday stuff. which basically means i come home and sit there with a last minute cake while she snuggles with her boytoy. funtimes. *mmm, boxcake* i'm pretty resigned at this point to limit it to only a day tho with the excuse of packing. (which really isn't an excuse, dumbass) we'll see how that plays out -.-

Ohayhocon is in two weeks (krist) and i still gotta get my damn shoes fixed and figure out what all i need to yank together at the last minute. we won't have an AA table for this one tho, so thankfully no last minute arts to do. which is good, cause i haven't been able to draw in weeks ;.; still crocheting though. wtf. i need to learn to do something more than scarves...

SOMEONE KICK MY ASS AND TELL ME TO WRITE.
lord knows my muse and i are not on speaking terms right now.

*curls up in a warm hoody and munches on mac&cheese*
