Cheers to the universe where:

-Fat jeans are just jeans
-tummy pudge means your food isn't rotten or poisoned
-someone loves you because you make them laugh instead of how perfect your shape is
-happiness doesn't come in a weight loss can
-you can dance without caring what you look like or if there's music
-no one understands what 'ugly' means, or how to spell or use it
-laughing is everyone's favorite exercise
-you can look in a mirror and smile because you're above ground and breathing (no more reasons necessary)
-matching socks are optional

today was gorgeous.
i had to wait way too long for this weather <3 thankyou for FINALLY being september! bring it on, autumn. i missed you.

this was a rare, but good day :3 i didn't even mind working for ten hours.
gonna go home soon and doodle.
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.

movies!

oatmeal_queen: (homer at the movies)
What a decent weekend. The E is pleased :3

worked a couple hours on saturday before spending the rest of the day watching Avatar and doodling to my heart's content. it was lovely <3

then chilled out at the Stackaway place on sunday after going to see District 9. and lemme just say, that that is an absolutely AMAZING movie and everyone should see it.
good lord, it gave me chills. the attention to detail that they pushed into it, making it so incredibly realistic despite the fact that it's a straight up sci-fi flick, was inconceivable. the movie sucks you in from the very get go and it just does not let go until the credits roll. they did some crazy amount of homework, and i loved every second. I don't usually dig documentary-like films, but this one is so worth it. seriously, the trailers/synops give no justice to the movie itself at all.
Go. Now.
i will definitely see it again, if only to catch all the little details i'm sure i missed the first time.

oh, and also? forgive me while i squee for a second here, cause before District 9 there was a preview for a movie called 'Legion'. (that movie poster totally made lol)
.____.
WHY DIDN'T I KNOW THIS MOVIE WAS BEING MADE.
[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar and i were so busy shoving our eyeballs back into our skulls that we almost missed what this movie was about, cause HOLYSHITWINGS. AUGH. PRETTY, MESSY, ANGRY, FIGHTY ANGEL VS ANGEL AND NASTY DEMON THINGS AND WINGS. YESPLZ.
gawd that looks yummy, and it comes out the weekend of my birthday in January. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME :D
srsly, watch the trailer. om nom nom nom. wing!porn ftw.
dude, and the main chick in this movie? totally 'Jessica' from Supernatural. huh.

also also?
Zombieland.
nuff said.

I'm gonna go see Inglorious Basterds as soon as its out X3 i have no high standards for this movie at all, i'm in it for the gratuitous stereotypes.

*goes back to inking doodles* <3 wings wings wings wings
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... )

sunday!

Jun. 21st, 2009 12:15 pm
oatmeal_queen: (little happy dancer dude)
Happy Father's day out there to all of my buddy's daddys that i have met and love <3
have an awesome day! :D

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: (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: (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: (ZOMBIES AHEAD)
ugh.
ok, perhaps spending the entire weekend working on these commissions wasn't so hot of an idea.
damnit.
despite the fact that i did get a whole lot done, i also ended up just getting really frustrated and angry with myself at the same time. the more you stare at something, the easier it is to think it sucks. that, along with a few other EXTREMELY irritating things, (including OT and unnecessary outsider emo) this weekend just didn't help for any kind of relaxation.
AND i have to do annual reviews at work before this tuesday that i haven't even touched yet. for me, and for my entire team. along with being in charge of training until wednesday.
*sigh*

thus, i ended the weekend with a House marathon and sketched some fluffy!smut instead.
followed by 'You'll Never Get Rich' with Fred Astaire. which i love, but it just wasn't the same without my dad's commentary X)

internet be damned, i'm gonna end sunday with a goddamn smile on my face.
oatmeal_queen: (coraline blue hair)
JDM quote! *points above* gawd that man is fantastic.

So Valentine's was actually pretty cool this year. :3
I cleaned and straightened up for most of the day in order to get some semblance of an apartment and actually succeeded in getting a lot done.

I also drew stuffs (YAAAAY) but unfortunately my scanner decided to die on me so i can't scan any of it -.- LAME. here's hoping it's just the power source since that can be replaced. i really don't wanna have to get a new one, i love this giant piece of shit <3

[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar and I went out last night to go see the Friday the 13th remake. Which was awesome. cause i got to stare at Jared Padalecki on a GIANT SCREEN for an EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME. which was actually a fairly decent movie, considering. the deaths weren't as predictable as i usually expect from a slasher film, so kudos to that. i had such a hard time disassociating tho, lol. my inner SPN nerd was waiting for Dean to show up and help his brother XD
Of course, I'd have enjoyed the movie a heck of a lot more if i wasn't getting a spanish commentary to my right (how do you say 'shut the fuck up' in spanish again?) and the fact that SOMEONE BROUGHT A BABY. WHUT?! augh. and not just that, i watched a couple people walk by throughout the film that had, like, ten year oldish kids.
i'm no parent, but srsly? i mean, it's violence, lots of sex and nudity, lots of stoner references and blood/gore. sounds like a family film to me! :D
-.-
but anywho, i got to see a bloody slasher fic for valentines day. not complaining.

got to see Coraline this past week too with [livejournal.com profile] rudelad737, which is an absolutely -amazing- movie and everyone should see it. I wish all fairy tales were as awesome as the ones in Neil Gaiman's head.
didn't go anywhere near Katsucon, but I heard it was overloaded anyway and that the security was tight for badges, so meh. no big loss on that one. i'm looking forward to ACEN anyway, especially since i'm going to be getting a new Lex coat that'll be long enough to actually cover my big ol' boots and have a nice big zipper down the front.

yar sunday. more work to do, more things to draw (woo!smut), places to go and a new roommate to annoy. hurray for good weekends.
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: (seesaw winchesters)
Weekend of lazy and awesome.
I love it.

toooootally empty house, since the roomies are in Atlanta (OMG MOLLY, I MISS YOUR MUSK.) but i've been gladly filling up my time with last minute artiness getting set for prints to take to previously mentioned con, and all around doing nothing. it's fan-fucking-tastic. X)
aside from the very lonely and needy cats. christ.

the spn season premiere was fabulous. yay for angels, and yay for new stuff. have been trying so INCREDIBLY HARD ever since then to ignore/tolerate every fucktwat and their fanbuddy quoting angel shit online from wikipedia, but then, it's not like books are readily available anymore, right? or, ya know, credible sources, or maybe some actual research or old school impossibilities like that. *facepalm* srsly. srsly? no.
it's like a train wreck tho, i can't stop seeing it.
*coughs*
anywho, s4 show? good.
crazy, random, batshit fandom? bad.

oh, speaking of random. So Dan and I were in Claires today (yes, claires) and the three cashiers were all talking amongst themselves and apparently grossing each other out. a conversation of which i missed, but happened to see the aftermath of. Dan caught it, however, and i was amused by the conversation that followed when i asked him what happened.

me: So i'm curious what the hell grossed her out so much. was it really that bad? she looked green.
D: well, yah, they were talking about burn victims.
me: that's it? srsly?
D: ...
me: no really, we're not talking about how serious it is, but how gross. i mean, was it specific? cause it really depends on the burn as to what kind of gross this means here...
D: what, do you have a stomach of IRON or something!?
me: well, think about it. i mean, was it a second degree or a third? was it bad enough to need a skin graft? a small area like a hand or a large one like the whole abdominal cavity? Was it enough to sever nerves? burn away muscle and veins? maybe even something deep enough to go to the bone and prevent re-growth?
D:...
me: and that doesn't even begin to touch any kind of infection...
D: you're not invited to my birthday anymore.
me: :(

hahaha X) i had such a healthy upbringing.
in related news, while at said Mall, i picked up a bottle of blue hair dye which i'm totally planning on playing with sometime soon. maybe even tomorrow :O! nothing dramatic, but fun nonetheless. i've been wanting to put color back in my hair for awhile now.

Friday was...man, i dunno what to call it. Isaac and I (the other EPA captain) were given the opportunity to take a class at a nearby place in tysons in order to get more info and learnin on Illustrator. We went right for the advanced class with the hopes of learning more in order to teach others on our teams, and it was all sprung on us at the last minute like, the day before. regardless, we go without much of a problem.

first off, holy crap, Nina was teaching it. lol. however, she was pretty sick that day and ended up going home after about an hour. so they got this other guy instead.
after that tho? man. I thought Isaac was gonna throw himself out a window, we were that bored. nothing against the teacher, in fact he was a really nice guy and a decent teacher, but we both knew pretty much -everything- he went through. by the time 3 o'clock rolled around, i'd about had it. Isaac was crawling in his seat by noon.

It just surprised me more than anything else. I mean, have we really gone through everything there is to know of the program? that couldn't possibly be, yet that's what it feels like.
Still, on the plus side, it pulled me out of my drawing rut since i kept myself sane by doodling. which the teacher ended up asking me if he could see and complimented them, haha. ballpoint pen mess that it is. he had a good sense of humor, and was a freelance illustrator himself.
I am not looking forward to the prospect of a photoshop class in the future, unfortunately :( i fear the same might happen, despite how much i'd love to see if there's more to learn.
yarrr.

annnywho, going to see 'Burn after reading' tonight at tysons :3 happy saturday all!
oatmeal_queen: (rule the world)
So, I did it.
I survived another year. Made it through another birthday.
Who knew? X)

Regardless of the fact that I didn't get to spend my birthday sitting around and relaxing, I had a decent day nonetheless ^.^ Most of it was spent in running meetings at work (ugh, my voice is swiftly retreating into the far distance) but all in all it was a decently easy work day.
Molly took me out to dinner afterwards where I promptly had my weight in sushi <3 omgyum.
which was followed by me being a dirty rotten cheater at Coldstone and enjoying every inch of it. u.u which means a shit ton of water drinking will be had tomorow XD lol.

Of which, speaking of tomorow, it appears as though the weather forecast is already screaming for snow. crap. damnit. damnitdamnit. shitfuckcunt. i hatehateHATE driving in this area when there's snow. The commuters of northern virginia are incapable of handling such a thing with any decent driving skills. *hisssss* DAMN this state for making me hate what i used to love! *shakes fist* (but on a brighter note, it alllllmost snowed on my bday <3)

For now, I can honestly say I'm doing well. Lonely, for various reasons, but otherwise doing well ^.^ I have the luxury of work, my art, my story and my fandoms to keep me distracted for now. It's not much, it's as good as it's getting.

This weekend I'm having a girls weekend back home wiff me mama for some after-birthday birthday jazz. Should be interesting. I got a zillion and a half text messages and calls today with wellwishers and whatnot with good spirits in turn, but just to reiterate on my end: OMG ATTENTION I LOVE YOU ALL. and thanks ^.^
now if only my mom would call me @.@ *sniffles* (sometime before midnight would be nice) EDIT: two minutes before midnight. nice save mom XD. too bad i was already in bed, lol. /EDIT not that i was expecting anything from david, but james called me twice <3 damn him for being so far away. ;.;

ugh, ded. cold. tired. bed. *plop*
oatmeal_queen: (chibiusa)
for the record, i had an awesome saturday, for once :3 *glee*

despite the fact that there was traffic all down 95 S today (ALL the way gawdamnit) and the fact that Kat is impossible to follow in general, I made a trek down to Richmond with Sako in order to generally chill out and have a good time.
Of which we did. and it was most fun ^.^

my nails got all done up pretty-like with arts and flowery stuff :O i <3 the design the lady painted on them and it's not even too girly for once. i'm gonna have to take a picture before it starts chipping off in like, a day XP

and I have poprocks and IBC root beer in a can.
love.

gawdamnit I'm tired, got home at 1 and my entire household is all awake and being weird, so I'm going to bed. g'night moon!
