Another episode of How I Suck At Everything. This time, tabletop gaming edition. Can't wait for the next episode, online computer game edition (part eleventy-billion), coming tonight. Yeah, I know, just downhormonemo, but still. Just would like to do things and, preferably, be good at them, or at least just be able to do them and have fun without having to always having it pointed out that I'm fucking up. (And it bothers me when I try to talk about it with someone, and I don't get empathy or sympathy, just get blown off. Thanks.) Sometimes I think, is this the way things really are supposed to be--40 more years of just kind of being a screw-up? I just, seriously, what's the point. It's too bad I have no interest in children, my own or adopted, so I could at least feel like I accomplished something.

Funeral for my uncle is on Tuesday, at practically the exact same time my dentist appointment should have been. So first thing Monday I have to call my dentist and re-reschedule (funny thing how I just rescheduled last week because their office-closed days changed).

Been a fuckin cranky old woman the past couple days. Just...annoyed by stupid crap, and feeling like I am totally missing something by the way I simply don't care about certain things that others fan so hard they're all but in hysterics. I dunno, I guess, I just don't go hysterical about celebrities, and I still just am missing *something* about the one that like the whole fandom is nuts over--and I don't gush over celebrity couples, so when people freaking go insane about them, I just am like ", okay?" I dunno. I guess I'm just too old, too cynical and jaded, or something. And I'm a fucking picky bitch, too--saw a fic posted to some comm last night that if I didn't have a brain-to-typing filter, so *so* wanted to comment "Ohmygod, are you 12 or something?" So hi, I am a horrible person and full of unpopular opinions and bad thoughts.

The tub drain plug/lever thing's being replaced, about 150$ as I expected. Less expected was the discovery that the pipe leading away from the bathtub drain has become frighteningly corroded this past year, and absolutely requires replacing of said segment, for another 500$. D:, *facepalm*, arghlwarghl, etc., and so on.

After last week's hormone-induced anxiety and then massive anger, I've meandered through a more typical low mood and then back to holy crap anxiety. :x Hence a panicky bout of Doing Things of a RL and holiday nature. At least that means the bills and present-wrapping are caught up on (only bits left are the last couple things yet to arrive). Have started planning my must-do list of things for January, including insurance and house-related issues. I guess this is the sort of thing I am good for now, but it means contacting people, which yeah, not my best skill.

foolish WoW fretting )

Jojo, I swear that beta will happen tomorrow, I mean it this time. :( It'll be my first thing on the list this time, I promise.

This is now my Sam song for pre-s6/6.01. Seriously. I just. In love with that song.

Also have heard the full song for the the trailer that's on the MCR site, Na Na Na, and am freaking nuts for it. Looking forward to sometime driving very fast to it.

re: WoW. Got heroic Sindrigosa \o/ Then we promptly screwed up, and did the Waiting A Long Time For This LK achievement wrong, tracking the wrong debuff. Fffffffff. It was a raid ID extention, too, so we have to wait until next Wed. to do it the right way and finally get our 10man drakes. So freaking disappointed. In the meantime, allegedly going to get the last achieve we need for the old Ulduar rusted protodrakes Sunday, just for the hell of it (hopefully Algalon, too).

Weird mood continues. Saving some fic in tabs for some reason the last few days instead of reading right away, while then rereading other older fic. Don't ask me why. I don't get me.

Ohyeah, and the mic part of my headset decided to go bad like out of the blue. One second it was fine, the next it's all fucked up and my talking's coming through as horrid static. It's weird, because the headphones part's just fine. And I don't hear it--but everyone else hears it. I dunno. I know they're old, like probably between 4-5 years old, but still, it's odd.

ETA: and this (Linkin Park - Iridescent) is so, so a Sam during Swan Song song. Good golly. ♥ And I imagine it's obvious that I'm really liking their A Thousand Suns CD. :| Really, really liking. :| (Time to sign off before I start spazzing about The Catalyst, too.)

Just a couple links that may have been writing-related recently. Didn't get to go last year, really hoping to do so this year.
(From that site: Blue Label — Johnnie Walker's premium blend. Every bottle is serial numbered and sold in a silk-lined box, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. There is no age declaration for Blue Label. 80 proof (40% ABV). It is one of the most expensive blended Scotches on the market, fetching prices upwards of $200 a bottle.)

And a couple for more for my usual tag. Boys, end s5. Sam, imo.

The husband's D&D game today. Just not really feeling like it, wish I didn't have to go. But then again, just not really feeling like WTS's raid tonight (nothing in regards to them, it's just me). Blah on everything.

[ profile] seisei_ftw, how are you so awesome? \o/ ♥ Seriously, you are awesome. Random vgifts are full of win. And awesome. ^___^ Thankyou~ *squishhug* (Also: (C o_o)C Crab battle! ♥ )

At least I've finally started on my [ profile] summer_sam_love fic, because honestly I've been feeling like the worst failure ever for having not gotten my act together up until now. Was feeling more and more panic since there's only fifteen days left until I post, and I do want to leave sufficient beta and edit time. I'm good at having anxiety attacks over stupid little things, yeah. Anyway, it's only half done, and it won't be long (only about 2k so far), but considering it's sort of like pulling teeth, I'm glad to have that much and to have the basics of the rest bulleted out. But yeah, 2k words for over four hours of work--I'm not kidding when I say I'm a slow writer or when I say that it's like pulling teeth. I have a lot of respect and awe for those who can write fast, whether good or otherwise. This is why I'll never do a big bang.

By the way, I do appreciate those that offered to help me brainstorm ideas on this when I've posted about stressing on this before. I just...I had so little, just tiny seeds of what I wanted to do, that I was embarrassed to write anyone to get plotting help because it would highlight how much next-to-nothing I already had. I'm just glad I finally had bits and pieces finally come together in my head last week. It won't be epic or anything stellar or deep--I'm just hoping for okay, frankly. Simply done will be nice. :p (Ugh, too bad tomorrow's so busy...hopefully Thursday?)

I have a couple of people I'm going to PM about betaing (I haven't gotten beta help in a couple years, since an old fandom, for lack of fellow fans, and then later--seriously--for fear of how bad I'd be told what I did was once I did know fellow fans), but if one of them can't, I'll post and ask here.

Anyway, I still owe a ton of comments, have barely commented on anyone's posts or the ones sitting in my email for several weeks now. Apologies again. Stressing has sort of made me want to hide, a lot. : /

Also also...some of the extended family that was causing teh dramaz? Still going on. I'm glad I don't have to deal with it, but am upset that my mother and those family members I do care about are still having to. Those of my extended family that are freaks and idiots and are generally reprehensible, good lord, I wish someone would slap some sense into them, seriously. Punch some sense into them, better still.

Took Mom out for dinner for her 60th yesterday, and gave her the Kindle that my brother, his gf, and the husband and I all got for her (for birthday and Christmas, at least for James and I, considering our budget). She's very gleeful about it.

Realized it's been over 3 years since I posted Put Your Hands Into The Fire (a KHII thing for that one springkink community). That one to this day remains the only thing I've written that I not only like, but have read/reread for my own enjoyment. I think the thing I miss most about AkuRoku was feeling like I actually could do (at least my interpretation of) the characters right, that I actually had a bit of confidence/comfortability with them and didn't feel so awkward (and I feel like I did schmoop better back then, too). Definitely the reverse for writing for SPN now--I have yet to really feel comfortable in Sam and Dean's heads, and even Our Endless Numbered Days isn't one I truly like (I see so many things I did wrong with it, ugh. How the hell did it ever get recced.).

It's funny, I've written four short things and one long piece for both fandoms. Though that doesn't count any [ profile] spnland work (which in a way I don't consider because some/most of it was half-assed, none was beta'd or submitted to any communities) or poetry (I have trouble counting poetry amongst fanwork in a way because sometimes it feels like fandom doesn't really count it--like at some of the comms that track fanworks for a pairing, they'll note fic, serial fic, bigbangs, drabbles, art, videos...but not poetry.). If I counted all that, I've done more for SPN, which makes me even more frustrated with feeling like such a bumbling newbie still.

Am worrying about the challenge I signed up for at [ profile] summer_sam_love. The germ of an idea I had (I claimed doing a fic tag for Swan Song) has refused to spark and feels pretty much dead. And I just can't seem to generate any other ideas at all, especially ones that haven't already been done and done again, and aren't just completely 2-D, flat and lifeless. I worry that I need to contact them and give the episode to someone else to claim--but I so wanted to do *something*, you know? I really, really think Sam is awesome and just wanted to *show* that somehow. Bah. I dunno. Maybe I'll give it another week or so.

Way back at the start of the year, I saw someone on my flist at the time mention making a resolution to make a post a day for 2010, and I thought that was a cool thing, decided to try it as well. Figured it would be kind of a good thing since these past few years at times I get stuck in my head and could go a month or even several months without saying anything. Missed yesterday though, since I just had absolutely nothing to say and no stupid links to share. So I guess I'm not gonna stress about trying to do that anymore. At least I did it for 6 months and near a week.

On the WoW side of things, worked on ICC10 hardmode stuff, got the ones for Marrowgar, Festergut and Rotface (and of course Lootship). Will try BQL on Monday and Deathwhisper/Saurfang on next week's run. Not bad considering Woken Too Soon's still casual and was running with several non guild people (friends, though, not true pugs).

It's funny that the thing I was looking forward to doing most for [ profile] spnland was writing, and ironically, what's the thing I haven't been able to do almost at all since it started? Yeah. Started out okay, but ever since.... Nearly nothing. Wouldn't even call it being blocked or locked up, because that implies there's something there to block or lock up. There's just really nothing in my head, writing-wise. And I'm gonna just laugh at myself for the whole "I wanna be a poet" thing, because yeah. To write as a career, you have to be able to, you know.... There's just no words, not for fan stuff, not for original projects.

Naturally, I actually had one idea for this one challenge due tomorrow (love letter from one character to another), and I was like yay and worked on it, and then realized the rules state it's got to be major, named characters and what I had won't work, not a bit. Sooo yeah. Awesomes. Least there's games there, because that's the only stuff I seem to be able to accomplish. That and voting on things.

I guess I could understand if I were just having trouble with character-focused things, because I'm a pretty lousy fan that just isn't as into secondary characters all that much, and some I'm outright *blah* on. I mean, yeah, I like Bobby and some others, but really if it isn't Sam or Dean (or okay, maybe the Impala), I just don't get too motivated. But there's been plenty of general writing challenges that don't demand certain characters, in which I could have written with Sam and Dean. Yet still no inspiration or success at motivating myself.

Then lately when I see everyone talking about their big bang projects, I get the little thought in my head of "Next year I'll try that!". Hey, self? Yeah. This is me pointing and laughing at you. LoooooooooOOOOOOOoooooooool. Pull the other one, it's got bells on. Dumbass.

At least I can accomplish things in WoW (Nin to 72, Sampala to 17), that's worth something right? Right? Yeah, didn't think so. :|

Someone sent me a sugary bunny virtual gift :D :D :D I don't know who it was, but whomever you are, ilu~! ♥ It's so cute X3 Thankyou!

I need to find the link of it, but one of my uncles on my mom's side (one of her younger brothers) pointed her at a Youtube video he and some friends did of them blowing up a junk van with dynamite. Mom's family is odd like this, yes. This is my genetics. :| And he's one of the *good* crazy ones. (Though at times he's somewhat of a lazy, forgetful doofus, but anyway.)

In WoW news, I used the AV weekend to finally accomplish two goals I've had for Ak for a very, very long time. One was to get exalted with the AV (Frostwolf) faction (38th exalted--need Timbermaw and...something else now, for the 40 exalteds achievement). The second, was finally FINALLY getting the 100 mount achievement.

And the reward~! )

I have wanted the red dragonhawk for so very long--it's one of those in-my-own-head roleplay things. There are certain things important to him as a character, including the Wyrmrest Accord faction and his red drake mount, his black drake mount, anything to do with the Argent Crusade faction/Ashen Verdict faction and his standing as 'exalted champion' for such and title of Crusader. But most of all, his racial identity and loyalty to Silvermoon City (the rebuilt bloodelf capital). That red dragonhawk looks just like the ones in Eversong Forest in the bloodelf starting zones, and to me is iconic of the race. Thus it was something I wanted to really have a sense of him being "of Silvermoon City" (which is the title I've switched back to for the moment). Anyway. Yay ♥ (And getting the last 3 mounts I needed only took two grueling, grueling days of pvping in mostly AV with some Wintergrasp thrown in. Ohgod, all the losses, over and over and over and over, with so few wins, just to eek out the honor and the rep. Egads.) Also, yes I know it looks orange but is labeled red. Blizzard is colorblind (see 'violet' protodrake that is pink/fuschia).

Friends wandered over for the evening, spent more time playing the original God of War with Kelly spectating and Anj walking me through. Post title is something I said during the proceedings. :p Have gotten past the Cerberus fight, and left off in this godawful room where you're supposed to get into alcoves for chests before you get trapped in and impaled on spikes. The 'puzzles' or minigames or whatever you call it in GoW are designed by sadists, I think. I normally don't talk when I game, but this one has me going from "crapsticks" to "fucksticks" to "AUGHWTFWTFWTFshitshitshit!". But Anj says I'm picking up on it faster than she did her first run through, so go me or something. \o/ Random tangent--I love Kratos' Artemis blade. Love. After I first got that, I started cleaving mobs in two and decapitating things and it made me honest to god *giiiiiiiiiiggle* in glee. And it's pretty 8D (First sparking blue and now sparking purple X3 ♥) You can keep your dressy girl stuff--I want me a Big Ass Sword that's pretty and glowy and sparking/sparkling. 8D 8D (Or axe. Big Ass Axe also works. :3 )

P.S. also [ profile] ysi_leftovers is my new best friend. :x Yes, I am very late to the party on this sort of thing I'M SLOW OKAY D: But omg muuuuuuusic music music music. I found so much yesterday >_> I will have to poke at it more soon. :3 (I do buy and will still buy, I promise \o/ This just...helps, with the whole not getting to do so often thing.)

Short jaunt over to B&N with Mom, and got the FFXIII guide like I'd planned, so at least I have that for whenever I get the game and PS3. Even if that's like 2011 or worse :p Also was a bit bad :< and got a CD, Music of Ireland - Welcome Home, which I guess is a selection of music from a PBS special (also has a DVD with it with part 1 of that special). Been really craving that style of music lately, for some reason. While there, read volumes 1 & 2 of the manga Fairy Tale (which I heard of when I heard the soundtrack for the anime, and the music is damned fine). I think I'm hooked. :x I can't help but be weak for a shounen manga series, even if the females are pretty damned boobular (seriously huge tracts of land)--but the art style, characters and story are cute and silly in that usual shounen sort of way, and it involves wizards and magic, so ♥

Forgot to post here the news article I did for the [ profile] spnland_writing challenge 002 (News Reporting) from a weekish ago. The basic concept was to write an article of the sort that would attract Sam and Dean to a case. Got third place, which is not bad at all. :)

Local Man Attacked By Giant Bird )

Basically it was all about this: ^^ Sort of want to write the casefic that would result from it, heh. Anyway. Was lazy, didn't do the Mary drabbles challenge or the meta challenge, but there was one meta winner in particular that I was incredibly impressed by:
[ profile] waterofthemoon's "Well, You Are Kind Of Butch": The Bisexuality Of Dean Winchester
Very well thought out and well written.

Insert WoW blather here, minor guild drahmaz blah blah, sloppy slacker people one side, officers being kind of brick wallish tards on the other side, guildmate friend getting his pants way too much in a bunch over it on yet another side, me and Kas sort of stuck in the middle of it all, yadda yadda. Whee. Also, Wynnchester-pally is already up to 30-nearly 31, woo! People *cough*[ profile] verbranden*cough* are trying to make me a tank but It Will Not Happen No. Except that running with Alevva's hunter alt made me actually use my taunt/threat gen stuff but it goes no further than that. >:E

Yeah, so I'm always behind the times, always always. Tonight I finally got to try out God of War (yes, the original, yes, I know GoW3 is due out soon ^^; ). Anyway! Freaking. FUN. Aaaaaaawesome fun. Even if it does seem really dark on our TV. Played it for several hours this evening as Anj walked me through it and Kelly watched (after a jaunt to HuHot nom). Need need to find a used copy somewhere. \o/ Anj also brought over GoW2 and showed us one of the fights (the one with Zeus) and holy beans it looked hard--graphics were definitely improved over the original, which makes me think 3 will be damned nice.

Though I must admit, I think Blizzard artists/developers were definitely ah 'influenced' on the look of the Kologarn fight in Ulduar, after seeing part of that Zeus/GoW2 fight :p (the bit where he's giant and you only see his upper half).

Also, I am still pining for FFXIII. I'm just sayin'. :| And after spending so much time on Wynnchester (my paladin) in WoW, I am sort of--just sort of--wishing that's what I was playing as a main right now. At the least the levelling is SO freaking easy. And I know they're really damned good in endgame raiding right now ('course Ak could be as good if I didn't suck and also could play/wanted to play affliction spec or even metamorphosis spec). Makes me wonder if I would have played one as my first toon if I would have rerolled like I did.

I do not want it to be daylight savings time. T__T Such hate for that losing an hour thing. If I could ditch one thing about the U.S., it would be that, I swear.

Oh, and I wish I could send that little free squirrel v-gift to so very many of you. :( It only lets you do so to three... D: D: *hugs*! to everyone in lieu of that :| ♥

Spaced off the gas utility bill, just realized as I was doing financial stuff a bit ago. It's due tomorrow, and of course when I went to put the mail out to send it, the mail person had already been by here. See, if I got up at a normal time instead of sleeping in too late (again), and if I would have gotten ready and done bills right away instead of messing around on the computer first, I would have had it out to be picked up in time. This is how not to be an adult.

Also, I'm an irritable bitch to people in my WoW guild, and am awesome at screwing up on the Sindragosa fight, more than anyone else. Yay.

Christ why'm I still up. Can't even blame sleeping earlier, because Dad called after I'd maybe dozed 15min and then wanted to be *chatty* forever (oh, genetics...).

Anyway. Comics! is adorable and funky and quirky and bizarre and adorable! I want a pet manticore. :B Reread and I flail that it updates slowly but it is worth it for the awesome. And have I linked at all yet? It was a print comic originally, and it's being rereleased on the web and maaaaan, it is weird and wrong and it makes me laugh.

I will finally spend that Amz gc my brother and his gf gave me for Christmas because I discovered Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More is FINALLY out as a mp3 album, so it is cheeeeap and not omgimport priced. GLEE. ♥ Though not sure if I should get those new Gorillaz and Peter Gabriel ones, too, because I still haven't gotten Porcupine Tree's The Incident or Nil Recurring (not mp3 format, though) or Iron & Wine's Around the Well--and gdi, Assemblage 23 has a new one out, too? (Compass). And I'd really wanted Tomcraft's Versus EP, and a there's been a few single mp3s... Criminy. Not much gets crossed off that wish list anymore. Makes me appreciate lastfm's free mp3s so very much, because even if that's stuff I've not heard of, at least it's something new to try.

Loved the [ profile] spnland media and game challenges this week ♥ And yay, more icons to do for the art comm (I suck at graphics, seriously so, but I love doing 'em, sooo...). Think I'm going to fail at submitting anything for the meta *and* for the news article ones, though. Because I'm awesome like that. Fail fail fail.

At least the past few weeks have enabled me to finish the poetry compilations beloved on the earth, Love Poems for Real Life, and Richard Wright's Haiku: This Other World. Snooped a bit at some old Coleridge, but still haven't reread "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" like I intended. For some reason started to reread Kerouac's Book of Haikus again, even though I'm still only half through The Best American Poetry 2009 and Bukowski's The Pleasures of the Damned: Poems, 1951-1993. I really like Bukowski's stuff. I already knew that from snooping on the web, but I really, really am digging this compilation a lot. Planning on rereading it once I finish--want to make notes of favorites. Might need to start picking up all of what he'd published.

The aunt is doing well still--talking and being awake much, much more. Even getting some of her snark back, and for some reason she started to sing the beginning of the Lollipop song at her infectious disease doctor when he stopped by on rounds. Starting to feel optimistic about things. o/

Other than that...[ profile] spnland fun has started \o/ While in WoW news, I suck. \o/ So frustrated with how lackluster warlock destruction dps is lately, despite being a pure damage class--and with feeling invisible in the guild no matter if I'm doing well or average (oh but hey, if I mess up...even though some mess up a lot and don't get these comments made). Ahwell. If my biggest woe is about sucking at a computer game, life must be getting back to normal a bit, no? :|

Seeing the extended family was decent. Ended up being a lot of my cousins' other side of the family, which was kind of a neat thing since it's been forever since seeing some of them, not since my one uncle's and aunt's funerals. Odd discovery was my cousin telling me she's written poetry, and been published in something, and that another aunt's written as well (It's amazing how even close family can still not know each other.) Sounds like she's interested in seeing some of mine, and I definitely want to see what both of them have done (got the feeling she might put together something of 'family' writings, which would be pretty cool). Wish I'd had the Xmas poem with me somehow, because she'd put together photo albums of old Christmases and it would have gone so well with that. Same cousin also gave me a bunch of photocopies of materials she'd gotten from a life coach, which is really freaking awesome of her to do, since I know she's spent a lot to meet with that individual. Definitely will be reading through it this week.

James' DnD game tomorrow...blah about it, but only mainly because I'm wanting 'hang around by myself and do nothing' time. Least it's a bit better than having Leslie's game because there'll be a break between end of it and raid time.

And now your moment of zen insecurity: More and more often, I find that damned near everybody I know (beyond fandom) writes, even writes poetry. How can I be thinking I could make anything of it if everybody else out there's already/also doing it, and mine isn't any better than theirs? How can I consider what I do special enough to even think I could attempt it as a livelihood?

Re: WoW--In addition to downing Marrowgar in last week's ICC25, last night got Deathwhisper (Deathyeller more like, she will not *shut up* >_< ) and the Gunship Battle (JETPACKS ♥). Except I was a dumbass on Gunship and died early and just got to watch it happen and know they didn't need me a *bit* to finish it. \o/ Worked a bunch on Saurfang, can get him to about 20% and then hit the wall from his healing. It is interesting times. In general really still liking the ICC fights--it's nice to have *rooms* again, and a mix of trash and bosses. The fights are interesting without being as stupid as some Ulduar and ToC ones. And though two of my favorite NW peoples won't come over to Dauntless (one switched to alliance, the other's going to a different Hellscream guild), my fellow female-playing-male-belf type person just transferred and joined. \o/ \o/ After raid we took off our gear and danced on the steps of the north Dalaran bank to celebrate. :p

Feeling rather silent of late. Nov writing project (such as it was) seems to have fizzled out, frustrated and sort of down about failing at that sort of thing again. Cold's pretty much gone (again), hoping it stays that way.

Am realizing Thanksgiving's next week already. Just sort of mentally throwing my arms up at the thought of Xmas. I feel sort of empty please refill on the whole holiday spirit thing, except having plunked a bit of change in a couple of the Salvation Army buckets outside the groc store/pharmacy.

In the time I was skipping raids because of the cold, the people that were making things miserable in Dauntless caused yet more drama and left guild. So \o/ and stuff. Giving it a bit more of a shot at least through the 'rebuilding', then will see if hard mode stuff feels as stressful without the crappy people. Also got Sasu-rogue to 80, am actually very yay about that. Can't help it, she's my original WoW toon from the very beginning. Also, big swords are awesome.

Somewhere along the line, something seems to have switched the weather for October and November. And ginko tree fruit still sucks ass.

/swoonsigh This bloooooooooog...

Female ginko trees near male ginko trees are still work of the devil (and not like strangely-captivating!Spn!Lucifer or guhawt!Samifer either). Former neighbors should have been shot for planting the two, and not in *decades* realizing what a godawful mistake they'd made. New neighbors should be shot for not noticing the horror that is in their new yard and disposing of it. I don't care how broke I was when buying this place, if I would have realized that my yard contained a tree that would produce fruit SO MUCH FRUIT in fall that smelled of a hungover barfing dog with severe gastrointestinal distress, I can guarandamntee you I would have hor'd myself out to get funds to have it cut down. Still praying to any and all deities that said tree(s) die, and curse that it was just damage from severe storms last year that made it seem it was on its way out. Every time I'm out scooping the squishy breaking-apart fruits off our driveway, I daydream of setting it on fire.

This exchange sums up times with my Mother: 1. she lets slip there are 10 yard bags of leaves to go to the curb 2. and I am not to help because of deathcold 3. I tell her to wait for the husband to get home to carry them 4. she promptly ignores me and starts doing it anyway when my back is turned 5. she snarks at me when I insist on helping her and I 6. call her a stubborn wench. ♥ Mothers! \o/

I am an icon addict. I am an icon whore. Constantly weeding and adding new every week. It is a struggle to stay below the 200 limit (wtf 200). I have like five versions of this icon alone (different colors, stills vs animated) because god I loved that bit so. D: SO.

I want Jensen taking care of sick!Jared J2 fic. Would actually write it but too blargh to do so. My life is so hard. \o/ Also, the Starbucks at the local B&N is so fail. They are friendly but the lousiest pseudobaristas everrrrrr.

And what the hell, re: this icon by [ profile] nyaubaby.

I memorize every angle and cell of you so I can recall the entirety of you when you are gone, and not just a still-photo flat memory of you. I trace your lines with my eyes, take notes about you with my fingertips, and will sculpt you later in my dreams.

Definitely is October Cold II, just seems a not as bad case of it, I think. I hope?

Main sewer line from house to street blocked up again from the front tree's roots, like it did a few years ago. \o/ Discovered this by the basement drain and old basement shower stall drain flooding during James' shower. Currently have RotoRooter here, and like the other plumber did the last time, they're having to go in through the roof access to clear it out (since previous owner drywalled off where the basement access is). Going to schedule with RR to have them send a rep to give us an estimate for installing external access, which would make future iterations of this a lot easier/cheaper (because of the access to the line then being ground level and thus a one-person job instead of two).

Strongly considering leaving current WoW guild. It's only been a couple months, but I just don't *like* a big chunk of the people. I'm really not comfortable there. And a certain person is developing from guild bitch to queen bee and I don't think I want to be around it. Also, coming to the realization that I enjoy completing/farming regular content, but this hardmode/heroic mode shit is for the birds. I just don't find that stuff *fun*. I know I can play on Sas and Impala (and maybe even Ohia, put her in DotH?) casually, but am trying to figure out what then to do with Ak. I wonder if DotH is allied with any 25man guilds, will have to check.
