Ugh, we have to turn on the air conditioner already, nooooo >_< It's supposed be just about 90F for the next three days, and already it's 79F inside the house despite it being still 70s outside because of how warm it was yesterday. And it's starting to get humid, which makes it feel sticky even with fans running. Yuuuuuuck. Nooo, Nebraska, this is the opposite of what I wanteeeeeed DX

Happy Mother's Day to all those on my flist who are or who fill the role ♥ Took Mom out to the Cheesecake Factory at lunch to celebrate, also sent her someecards from us and from the cats (because I am weird that way).

Too much food, though, ugh. Huge meal there today, following a huge meal last night (at a really nice steak/seafood place down on Omaha's riverfront) when the husband and I did dinner out for an anniversary-a-day-late thing. To be honest, I really do eat too much usually--but even for me, ugh, so damned much food. Very much feel like I need to be comatose. -__-

I swear, though, was fine today until about 2pm, then my mood went to crap for no reason. So stupidly grumpy now. Doesn't help that a certain website is being broken again (no, shockingly I'm not referring to this one).

Planted two catnip plants between the front walk and the house yesterday. Hoping we can keep them alive and that they'll grow and spread nicely, fill in that sparse area. Seemed a good plant to do, especially considering we and every freaking friend we have owns cats.

Grump, grump, grump.

Tangled? Awesome♥ Friend Kelly asked to borrow my 1st season SPN DVDs. Even more awesome. Which makes how I'm so stupidly melancholy today even more incomprehensible >_< Ffffffffff, I still haven't gotten around to buying the DVDs of Totoro or Whispers of the Heart. Why do I never remember this until I need them most?

Guild finally got heroic Chimaeron down. Finally, finally, finally.

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 "...um, 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.

yes well.

Woof. Not that much snow (esp since the husband and Mom did part of the shoveling yesterday morning), but the ice underneath is most annoying. Am glad the husband did the main part of the driveway again this am, because getting over the cold plus the usual asthma meant my lungs were really super freaking unhappy to be out in 5F plus windchill to work on the rest of the driveway and sidewalks. Super-tight and wheezy when I came in, though it seems to be settling back down to just irritated coughing. Tea helped, and the ice cream, well that was just a morale boost. Odd that I don't feel muscle aches from shoveling, but that my *hands* and wrists freaking hurt. Ow.

Have been meaning to read Gunnerkrigg Court for *years*. Was reminded of such awhile back when certain persons on my friends list mentioned it, but still never got around to reading it--until yesterday. Where I read the entire thing, all 833--now 834--comics, in one day. Why have I not been reading this for *years* now? Holy beans, so good. Poked Anj to read it, must get Kelly to check it out, too. I think they would love it.

But fffffff, when did it get to be February? Afdsafkjfjk. I'm pretty much at the point of ditching the idea I had for a BigBang, as well as my two secondary ideas. Trying to decide if an older idea is even worth considering. So I can, you know, like take notes and outline and maybe even actually start writing. I'm so freaking doomed. T__T

Also: yesssss, finally found a torrent for The Good, The Bad, The Weird's soundtrack. Hard. To. Find! I was going to buy from Amazon, but the only seller there wants $90 (and it's out of print from other sources such as yesasia.com). No way in *heck*. >_< So many stupid "sponsored downloads" out there, no way I'm signing up for something that does the free at first/pay later thing, don't trust that at all. But at least, hey, torrent. YEHARRRG, AVAST YE SCURVY SEADOGS, PREPARE TO BE BOARDED. So worth it, this soundtrack is *so good*. And it reminds me that even with the...interesting ending, I think I want a DVD. So funky, heh.

Low mood, not feeling well, not getting done what I promised someone I'd do. And opened my virtual mouth and hit someone with major TMI and am regretting such. Way to push boundaries in the name of being sympathetic, self. I'm great at making people uncomfortable.

New warlock in guild (person from our old guild rejoining us) is, as I expected, kicking my ass hard in DPS. Not only is this person very good, but it just shows how bad of a player I am. I'm mistake prone, I forget things, I'm not efficient about spell rotations/cooldowns, my reflexes are crappy. I can keep trying to learn, but honestly that's what I've been doing for 6 years of gaming. I'm just at heart a lousy player, and it's kind of embarassing to have it so spotlighted again. Also, observing subtle sexism in game makes my stomach knot. Or maybe the individuals in question are just being assholes and it wouldn't matter who to--but I have this feeling, especially considering the past issue, that it's more than that.

Went to finally spend my Amz giftcard from my brother for my birthday last summer (I know...), and...I swear, I used to spend so damned much on music. But I could find barely anything I wanted. All my favorites, I mean, they're still good, but almost all of them are doing stuff that's no longer my musical tastes. Kind of sucks. At least picked up two new things from Ben Cooper: a new EP for his Radical Face work, and his latest Electric Presidents CD. At least, he's got 3 new projects in the works for 2011, so that'll give me something to listen to eventually. Also got the other Ian Astbury/Unkle song, and the newest Assemblage 23 for when I'm in an electronic mood. Just weird to still have a balance with Amz (not counting the iTunes gc from the husband I still have). I swear, I used to devour music, what the hell's wrong with me. Need to try to find new groups/artists to try, I guess. (Thought I was going to try more Mogwai, but I dunno, the samples just weren't hooking me like their newest did.)

Leaving myself this to reread, seriously got under my skin. Not just because of the kink or the fact that it's so well-written--but how incredibly well she gets inside Jared's head and enables the reader to share that headspace, before, during and after. And the incredible feel of trust, caring and love that is shown between the two is as much the reason it was so powerful and intense as the kink and sex.


Wonder if this is 'coming down with something' or just allergy flare up. And wonder if the husband would mind pizza or something.

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.

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.

Mood is in the absolute crapper of late. One of the times pms is especially godawful, I suppose. But if I am extra withdrawn the last few days, that's why. Not doing well at dealing with people, even in-game. Anger issues are definitely a problem this time around, seriously blowing up at stupidly minor frustrations and people being idiots that I should shrug off. I'm always the one that looks bad for it, and it's embarassing; yet, I just can't seem to keep it under control.

Anyway. Ak hit 85 on Saturday, the husband's toon the next day. Starting the usual end-game routine of daily quests, rep grinding, dungeons and heroic dungeons. My annoyance with how they've set up the jewelcrafting profession compared to the other professions knows no bounds. But seriously, if the one guy in guild keeps pushing me around about my plans on how to get designs for the guild, especially since he's *helping out* and I'm the one that should be telling *him* how to proceed, I'm going to lose my shit again.

So behind on Christmas things. And I started out so well, too.

Edit: Also think I'm going to be dropping out of the j2everafter thing. I feel bad, since i claimed a signup someone else could have had. But at this point, I don't think there's any way I'm capable of finishing it (I haven't even done more than that tentative start from November), and am in a really bad mental place about my writing abilities.
whitereflection: (winchesters and without you i break)
My throat is on fire. T___T Can't skip out on the D&D thing tomorrow or the late-Thanksgiving thing in the evening, much less writing for the last 3 days of November. But I really, really wish I could just say to hell with it all. Because seriously, on fire. So hope it's not so bad when I wake up tomorrow.

Also, is there a "hollisharrow1476" out there? Because they're trying to add me to their Yahoo! online list, and I'm kind of not sure who that person even is. o_O So, just curious.

So tired... Not sleeping well, allergies, still that flu shot?, that time depleting my iron and will to live, who knows. The pumpkin spice instant coffee drink thing isn't helping terribly much.

I need to do my 10min/100 words. >_< Honestly, how hard is that. NOT AT ALL. Yet I'm failing at getting started, because tired. Wah. Dear self: quit being a wench and just write, you stupid bitch.

Must vote this evening. Trying to avoid politics and articles/discussions thereof, though. Hate politics, so so much. Just hate the whole...*handflail* everything about it, the attitudes people get toward each other, the way so many treat each other over differences of belief and opinion. And it always seems to highlight how much selfishness, self-centeredness, and greed there is in those of my city/state/country. Just gets me down/frustrated, makes me want to avoid it all.

RIGHT. Time to go write. And by write, I mean stare at a blank, white file and bitch and moan to myself. Woo.

Was woken up a little bit ago by the doorbell (yeah I know, I'm a slacker, I suck)--flowers from my in-laws, as a belated birthday gift. I guess maybe the husband's birthday coming up on the 31st reminded them they'd missed mine back in August? To be honest, I didn't even notice they missed it...currently thinking "didn't they send a card/check or something?"--but I guess they must not have or they think they hadn't?

Had to have a tech out yesterday evening because our internet, cable tv, and even our phone were acting weird. Turns out that one, there was a broken component where the main cable company line meets the line run to the house. But also--the line to the house had been chewed into by squirrels exposing and damaging the inner wire. Squirrels. I just...what.


I dunno, I think the 'how to ruin forever' options for all three should be boxes where no one says anything at all.

For so little happening, life feels very strange at times. Also, holy hell, why is waking up so hard. And fuck allergies, seriously.

Got Missy-cat to the vet this morning. They removed the growth, a short procedure that only took a bit over an hour. They'll send it for biopsy so we should know in a few days if it's something that we need to worry about. For now, she's doing really well, not acting too out of the ordinary at all. They gave her an antibiotic and steroid shot, and it left only a small incision, so hopefully it'll heal quick. Then there'll just be taking her back in a couple weeks to get the sutures out.

Another 550$+ today, though. : / This has been an expensive, expensive year for the cats. We never intended to have that many, but I kind of have liked having four. But I'm starting to agree with the husband's statement that as they age and eventually die, that he doesn't ever want to have more than two at a time again. I don't know how we ended up with ones that all have so many medical issues. There's always been so many other animals I've wanted to have, too, but I couldn't imagine doing so now, even beyond him saying no--the cost, even for just normal stuff, is so high. And when they have health issues, it's just astronomical. : /

Ugh, and now I've been short with Mom about something in regards to this all, and I seriously hate when I do that. But she gets so overly concerned, almost obsessive, about the littlest things, almost hypochondriac, and I'm already stressed and worrying about it all and about costs, and I just...crap. I mean, we've been home just a bit over an hour, and of course she's going to groom it some--they only said to go back for the cone if she really won't leave it alone--ffs, give it some time, mother.

Read the first two volumes (and some of the third) of Scott Pilgrim at Borders while Missy was having the vetwork done. Really was liking it, wish I could buy them. Definitely want to see the movie when it hits DVD.

I swear I'll get to comments tomorrow. :x Right now I want comfort!pizza-rolls. :x

It's funny that the thing I was looking forward to doing most for [livejournal.com 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. :|

My brother's cat. B'awwwww :p

Noticed last night that one of the webcomic artists I follow is a Supernatural fan (scroll down to see her poll on the right hand side). Dunno why this makes me so amusedhappy, but it does. Suppose the fact she named her little boy Sam is just coincidence? *hee*

Dental insurance I've been paying for since December, and who was already *reminded* two months ago by the company handling benefits that yes, I am covered, still says my name isn't on their lists. Obv this means my dental visit from February still can't be claimed \o/ Woooooooooo. That, chipped tooth, rattling furnance (again), patio door lock going funny (door's a year and a half old \o/), WoW guild people being doofs in two ways (not showing up or going gloomdoom because we had *gasp* two whole cancelled nights), and I haven't been able to write anything for real--either fanfiction or real poetry--for months. Ignoring all of that~ It is all minor and nothing and people on my flist have real, truly difficult things they're struggling with. Gonna quit emostressing over minor dumb things, yes.

Why do I have such a *thing* about this icon? Good grief.

I sort of noticed yesterday, but have really, really, really noticed today, that I am extremely, horribly, excruciatingly irritable and cranky. And petty and petulant. :< I understand being tired and drained but good freaking grief, this is ridiculous. I've been snarky at folks online here, short with the husband, and extremely snippy with Mom. Even annoyed with the cats.

And now I'm finding I'm the sort of lousy person that can't just accept that people at a community are having fun with a topic that I'm not interested in, but instead am feeling whiny that they're not choosing a topic I do happen to be interested in. I mean, ffs, self, get over yourself and grow up. Let them have their fun and excitement and enthusiasm. Just because it is often emphasized that they're interested in this subset of fandom you're just not that into, it doesn't mean you're being left out or excluded.

Afsdfjghasdf arghlblargh. I hate me.

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.

Wish I could get that. Would be really something cool to put on the wall I face when I sleep, so I could see it when I wake up. I really dig Sam Brown's work.

Yesterday, I discovered it's fabulously easy to make hot roast beef sandwiches at home; wondered why I'd never tried before. Today made a from scratch mushroom/pea/asparagus/gouda cheese soup, and it was pretty awesome.

Sort of craving a roadtrip so much it's driving me a bit nuts, and it's kind of getting to me that for various reasons it's not at all possible, even once the weather gets better. I want to so danged much.

•Ushered in 2010 by listening to a couple people on the guild's Vent go from talking to heated discussion to argument, and logging off to flee that and reading bad fanfic until I realized at about 12:30 that oh yeah, it was the new year, wasn't it. Aaaaaaaawesome.

•Having Anj, Gina, and Kelly over today as our belated Christmas potluck. Only from 4-8, but man, I am really wishing I could just not. And just not on the extended family postponed-from-Christmas thing tomorrow. I start 2010 grumpy and very antisocial. Go me. (And just wait for Don's movie thing next Saturday all aft and evening \o/ woooo. *hermits* Good lord, I suck when I'm anti-people.)

•Been watching the self-rec event at [livejournal.com profile] sawedoff_recs and feeling grumblish at myself for not submitting any of the few Spn things I did. I had a couple things I felt okay about, why didn't I submit one. I'm such a dumb chicken.

•Looked out back when I hit bed about 2, saw 3 rabbits silhouetted against the snowdrifts (all eating the critter food in the dark). I wonder what omen or portent that is, to have that be the first thing seen at the beginning of the new year.

As seen at today's [livejournal.com profile] crack_impala:
Some Wishes Are Worth Waiting For by [livejournal.com profile] runedgirl, Sam/Dean, NC17, 6400 words. Sam and Dean, a hunt, then Christmas Eve night with the family they helped. Sweet and utterly charming and adorable, lovely secondary characters, and just the most heartwarming sort of Sam/Dean, my absolutely favorite sort. And hot, too, very yum. But most of all, just so warmfuzzy and full of 'things will be okay' and love that I just want to hug it. Perfect holiday story.

(Just so moody this week, otherwise. Tired and PMSey and down about stupid game stuff of all things, and full of crankiness at my holiday procrastination. Need to get my ass in gear tomorrow. Extra annoyed that the computer I handed down to Mom had its power supply go bad, so of all things now our Christmas present to her is a new power supply for it, which seems sort of blah. :/ I feel bad the computer tower went bad like that, it's not that old, had no idea it would. Anyway. Eh. /sigh Criminy, the 13th already...

I will say that the community <lj user="wow_ladies" is amazing. Have lurked there for years, commented occasionally, but never posted. Finally did a rant there about one of the new dungeons--love Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection, but the heroic version of HoR is BALLS--and had like 45 comments to sort through this morning. The amount of commiserating, sympathy and advice was incredible \o/)
