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 [livejournal.com 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

A Norfolk man was hospitalized Monday night after apparently being attacked by a giant bird.

Jeff Buckley, 37, was airlifted to University Medical Center in Omaha with severe lacerations and puncture wounds after what authorities theorize was an attack by an ostrich or emu escaped from a nearby exotic game ranch. Michael Stafford of the Ostrich and Emu Producers of Nebraska Cooperative Ranch located in Pierce denies that any of their animals has escaped, and is demanding the State Patrol recant this theory.

"Our facilities are absolutely secure and properly maintained," said Stafford on Tuesday. "We keep careful inventory of our stock, and we are in no way missing any ostriches or emu, and there's no evidence at all of any of the stockades or fencing being damaged to permit any to escape." Stafford went on to say that while the large birds can cause injury, they could not have inflicted the sorts of wounds Buckley received, which he stated were more the sort a raptor would cause.

However, Officer Sheila Leubke, a spokesman for the State Patrol, has stated that tracks found near Buckley's home by the Norfolk Police Department and the State Patrol indicate the presence of a very large bird in the vicinity. Horse tracks were also found in the area, and police haven't ruled out human involvement in the attack as well.

One of Buckley's neighbors who purportedly heard the sound of hoofbeats late Monday also disagrees with law enforcement's theories about what caused the incident. Wanda Zendejas claims to have seen a sizable creature in flight multiple times in the week before the attack on Buckley. Neither ostriches or emu are able to fly. Zendejas also added that what she saw was substantially larger than hawks or other birds of prey common to this region.

Buckley is currently listed as in critical condition, though doctors at the hospital say he is expected to make a full recovery.

Basically it was all about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippogriff ^^ 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:
[livejournal.com 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*[livejournal.com 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

Egads, too much talking from me. Shutting up now.
