Subject:Final Update (or, I'm in ur office, bannin' ur lj)
Time:10:49 am.
No, actually, they haven't banned LJ yet. Emphasis on yet. But they have blocked aol mail, and gmail, so i've resorted to yahoo mail until they ban that - but the lag between me sending a mail and people on aol getting said mail is ... attrocious. oh well.

But anyway, this is going to be the last update in this journal. I log in once a week, skim my f-page, and log back into otter. It's easier to stay logged in to one at work, and most of the comms I read are on otter.

Therefore, if you wish to keep up to date on my life (not like there's ever much of anything going on in it), feel free to friend imisstheobvious

yes, it is primarily writing, but when I do update, it'll be in there.

Subject:Not that I think anyon noticed...
Time:9:56 pm.
Wow. I hero'd for ... pretty much three days straight.

Had some awesome teams. Had some teams that were made of fail, including one I had to petition. It was a first for me, but I suppose I should be happy it hapened Sunday morning rather than ... Sunday evening.

Grey is now 7.5 bars away from 50. WooT! When I started, she'd just dinged 43, so I consider this a pretty good weekend. I figure I can hit 50 by Wednesday or so, if I play every night with good teams.

My next attempt is going to be a peacebringer who possessed her, so that takes care of costumes and storyline. Wheee!

In other news...I bought the ferrets a new cage that should be here thursday/friday. When it gets here, we're using the bottom of their current cage as a swimming pool for them in the backyard :)

In other other news, there has been construction on the outside of the house outside our window. It didn't help my headache. In related news, they found termites in the house (yikes!) so they have to tent the house in a couple weeks. ewww.

In a different sort of news, Bright's birthday is Tuesday. Hooray!

And now it's bedtime, so ...goodnight.

Subject:Dumbass of the Year
Time:8:43 am.
So, I think I win the dumbass of the year award.

Last night, we had the ferrets out. Like usual. But at some point, I'd decided to hang my hair towel over the gate instead of, I don't know, pitching it down the hall or something. So Ven got under the door, over the gate, and is now missing.

We spent last night downstairs, pulled out the fridge twice, and have not found her. Am starting to agree with the maybe she got outside theories. =/

Am feeling less than hopeful about getting her back.

Maybe I win loser of the year award, too.

Subject:omg i'm dying
Time:7:35 am.
okay, not really, but... ugh. I had a migraine last night, woke up around 4;30 with it, took some drugs, couldn't get back to sleep, so laid in bed 'til 6:15 and got up. The migraine itself is more or less gone, but i've got that nausea that so often accompanies them. not bad enough to make me be sick, but enough that i feel like it's going to make me be sick.

fun.

So, I have a reluctant new obsession. I admit I'm getting into it only because Blake Lively and Chace Crawford are in a show together, and that amuses the part of me that will always see her as Ashley. I started in on the books, and so far, there's a lot of giggling in inappropriate places on my part - but I'm only a chapter into the second one. Borders didn't have the first one. Sigh. but if i like this one, i'll see if i can get the rest of them off ebay, 'cause they're like, $10 each =/ wtf, mate?

I have a lot to read. 'cause ... okay. I have the Southern Vampire book that just came out, and there's a new Dean Koontz book, and I'm rereading the dark tower books, I have to reread 5th & 6th HP before the 7th comes out (and before the movie comes out). Plus, there's heroing and RP to fit in. It makes me sad that when we have bunnies for one universe, the other AUs get abandoned. Lol. 'cause I have a moderate itch to play 3rd AU Reid/Tyler to see if Reid's over himself yet, or if Tyler's too into Geoff to care. ::snerk::

But we've got bunnies for the canon (insert hysterical laughter here) comm, so that's where we're playing right now. 'cause I think we're about to start the Emma arc. Heheh. Poor Tyler has no idea what to do with her. And then we had something else ::muse:: Or maybe not, 'cause the Gregory thing's third AU. Though I guess really he could be in any U. ::ponders:: then he and Chase could have an Epic Fight of Doom!

And we could crack open the hellgate. 'cause there's an Epic Battle of DOOM! tied to that, too.

And I should totally wait 'til Jen's feeling better to do any Epic Battles of anything ;)

I wonder if it should bother me that i'm 29 and my life is still predominantly about RP? Well, not my life but the interesting bits of my entries. 'cause I have a life. Seriously. ::shifty eyes::

Subject:She lives!
Time:1:09 pm.
Why yes, she does.

Hi. :)

I think I should probably inform everyone here (and everywhere else), I hardly log in to this name any more. I mean, seriously. So if any of you were expecting replies to f-locked posts... ::pause:: nevermind. I forget I've gone reclusive and don't talk to anyone.

So, for those who care:

Birthday & RPCollapse )

So, in summary:

Boyfriend good, animals good, life okay, work sucks, birthday good, RP fun.

Subject:Do you really understand English?
Time:11:37 am.
I kept meaning to post this. 'cause it's funny to me. and by funny, i mean, if i don't laugh, i'll cry.

This is text from reminder notices, that I get all the time. Drives me completely batshit crazy, 'cause I seriously want to club these people over the head. Seriously, wtf.

PhrasingCollapse )

And it absolutely amazes me (though I suppose it really shouldn't), how many people write the sentence on the reminder letter (where there is neither line nor red "X") and return that to us.

I think if they really understood English, I'd see a lot less of those.

Subject:When Epic Bunnies Suck
Time:7:16 am.
In the light of our combination bunny (which we all admit totally rocks - gotta love when surprise!bunnies rock), I think Eric wants to make a post on the Shadow boards to coordinate the broken covens and combine them. ::rolls:: except, that's crazy huge, and wrong of me to want to do. in the comm. because wow, would that involve an epic cast of characters. but that'd friggen rock. ::shifty eyes:: and it would totally piss off all the hunters who did such a job of breaking them in the first place.

Well, maybe after our reaper arc. ::snerk:: Ashley was all "Do not want, bitch" ::so amused:: I believe she has reached the end of her rope for right now ::petpets Ashley:: She does not get to be the target for a little while, or it will do Very Bad Things to her.

So we're targeting someone else ::sage nod:: or Very Bad Things will happen.

In other RP news, pretty sure my CoH game flopped. And I'm strangely fine with that. Now, I am debating making a post or not making a post to be all "pls don't apply kthxbai 'cause we's closed"

It was a nice dream, but...well, I have other bunnies.

In real news, I'm taking Friday off. It is my once monthly mental health day. Not because my new computer is arriving on Thursday and I want to stay up all night playing heroes. Nooooo....not at all.

In equally real news, maybe the vet wasn't wrong about Logan. he's totally growing in his summer coat.

::pause. Rant:: OMFG STFU I'm so goddamn sick of hearing about the Imus shit on the news. Do we have nothing better to do with our time?!? Learn to let it go, people. Let it go. So he said some zomg offensive things. Let it go. Everyone needs to stop being so goddamn sensitive. It's just words. They only hurt if you let them.

Ahem. Anyway. We noticed Logan getting some stubbly fur a week or so ago, and now it's blooming into full out summer coat and being all soft and stuff. So .. maybe he never had it. But honestly, when you see a bald-back ferret, do you not immediately think "Oh noes, adrenals!"?

But his blood panel came back fine, and i was all "Do Not Believe", but... maybe that is the case. So I guess we'll see. If he goes bald again next shed, I'll take him in again, and if he still doesn't have it, I'll write it off as something seasonal. I mean, it's not like I want him to have it (hello, expensive surgery), but it was just weird to me that he had that particular symptom, and didn't have the associated ailment.

Basil is now known as "helpful bagel". Sometimes "happy bagel/helpful feet". Because the other day when we tore the cage apart to clean it (always fun, why we only do it a couple times a year) I was leaning over the bed to talk to Bas, and Bright was all "Did you just call him a bagel?" and so I was like "Yes, he's a helpful bagel" and ... poor thing, it stuck. but he is no longer cute fluffy kit, so happy feet doesn't really work for him.

And happily, Bas didn't lose his color. His back lightened a little, but he kept his marks. Unlike Logan ::Glare:: who I often forget started life as a panda, because he's all white now.

Erg. i need to find a distraction bunny. Libby wants to hook up with someone in the Rory house so she can move out ::amused:: and I need to figure out who else fits with who else. and zomg, Bobby/Caleb, so cute. Unexpectedly cute. Lol. Now, I just need to work on Sasha, Ice, and Karen, and I'll be all set, 'cause Riley totally snaked Karen's man ::gasp::

Oh. I should put them on the page. ::goes to do so::

Subject:Woo!
Time:8:31 pm.
So, I got tired of CoX crashing on me.

So I bought a new computer.

okay, okay. I ordered a new computer off ebay. A barebones thing, with good processor and power supply, and no HD (we're just going to stick mine into it - no Vista for me, thanks), and theoretically, this will stop the hero crashies.

It was under $400, which is cool, 'cause I'll probably get at least half that for my birthday. Maybe all of it if i explain to my grandmother. Lol.

Eeee! happy.

Oh, and in other news, Badger let two of his brothers out while bright was out to lunch with his aunt. so they found Badge in the front room, Basil in our closet, and Wolf - IN THE BACKYARD!!

But it was okay, because he was actually in the yard, and not out a gate or anything. scared me to hear about it, but then it was funny 'cause they were okay. they're all totally passed out right now. i lectured Badge when I got home, but I don't think he listened.

Subject:Oooo, time warp
Time:9:01 am.
So, we've got three clocks in our room (one's really a white noise thingy that has a clock in it but we aren't reallly using as a clock) and the one I looked at was our smart clock.

I guess this was the weekend the clocks were supposed to go forward. 'cause it did. and i was all "hm. 9:45. should probably get up" 'cause we have errands and stuff. well. grocery shopping. which is like an errand.

So I come in here, and all the kids are still sleeping. Not necessarily weird - they were out late last night. but every other clock in the room says 8:45.

So i'm all ::Baffle:: and i look at all the clocks. Everything but my laptop says 8:46. So i go back in the bedroom. The other two clocks that I didn't look at? They all say 8:46.

Yeah. ::nods:: that was some fun stuff.

hehehe.

it's 2:32, and i'm so wired.

finally sorted out the hell bunny.

got Grey up to 31.

got our emerald's up to 8. we should work on our falls sometime this weekend too.

ahahaha. i'm like, crazy psyched about cox_rpg. like. there's play, and it's good, and and....and yeah! and it's so far not looking like a smut comm. which is good, 'cause i was starting to wonder where all the legit RP ran off to. Not that i have anything against it, mind, but when that's all a comm is ::coughcoughpointcoughcough:: it's ... yeah.

::pokes the au comm somewhat randomly:: we need bunnies there. but i guess it comes and goes in waves, and it's all well.

Oh. before i forget. Bright.

Nevermind. you'll probably see e-mail before you see this.

and zomg. i shouldn't be allowed to play Satan. ::evil:: and now i need to think of a bunny. 'cause he either cracks open the hellgate again (which, i'm sure will thrill everyone) or he has to figure out a way in.

or the spell could be the one that makes the hole in the realities and ... stuff.

oh. the tired just hit. ::sway. falls over::

Subject:urgh
Time:7:34 am.
My alarm woke me up.

yes, I know, that's what they're supposed to do, but usually I'm up before it goes off. Not this morning =/ 'cause we went to bed kind of late last night. i got caught up in ... oh. Stuff I'm not talking about in an open entry, but Jen and Bright know, so .. yeah. so i was posting while I was doing that. might rant about it in a locked entry, but I doubt it. The ranting is done. ::snerk::

M'seriously thinking about making a CoX RP comm. I just...need to sort out the mechanics of it. I mean, my idea is to have it be non-combative, since we do that in the game, but to kind of make it ... what your character does when s/he isn't fighting.

so bright asked "so is it a smut community?" and ... well. I had a hard time deciding how it wouldn't be. ::amused:: which made me wonder then if it was even worth it to make a comm, or just play our characters together in IMs. 'cause he said he probably wouldn't join, which means it would be a solo project and i know me well enough to know that if it didn't get a big response, I'd lose interest and it would flop. But i didn't really see anything else on LJ that was ... an RP comm.

So maybe i'll log in to otter later & do my intro post & post that as a question.

And while I don't want to get distracted away from the covenant comm (I actually managed to stretch out a plot point over more than just a weekend. zomg, whoa!), m'gonna need somethin' to do while Jen's moving =P

I just... need to find the bunnies, and get them moving. 'cause i'm in one of those downsweeps that annoy me. the whole 'I want to play but I can't summon the motivation necessary to start the scene and carry it through.' On the yay side though, these are followed by rampant 'zomg must play noooooooowwwwwwwwwww!' sweeps where I play anything and everything.

and i'm so tired. =/ stupid staying up too late.

Subject:A post just to use the icon that makes no sense to anyone but us
Time:7:33 am.
But it's all well, because they will be in the novel.

Just...with fewer canon references. 'cause we can't tromple on anything that might get us sued. 'cause that would be bad.

So, update.

Was really tired this morning. really thought about calling out, but tired is not a reason to call out. sadly. if i had more sick days.. yeah. They should give us like, three tired days a year. "Yeah, sorry. Can't come in. too tired."

I thought about staying in bed, then i remembered my alarm was set for 6:30 (i did change it; it used to be 7), and since it was already 6:26, I may as well get up.

and i need to see if i can find some silver polish or tarnish remover or something & see if i can get the chain on the bracelets I bought shiny. so. that'll happen. someday. eventually.

I still want another ring.

and i need to find stuff to play. Think we were doing corey/dennis, or corey/roland tonight, but ... there should be more than that. Oh. I was totally going to do a jacob post :;eyes clock:: at work. i will do that.

Jacob's pissed ::sniggle:: someone's going to pay for almost killing him. ::Devious cackles::

zomg, whoa. they could totally wreck the apartment. ahahaha. then Ash would have an excuse not to go back. "Oh, place is a mess, let's go somewhere else." and she'd have to rescue her traumatized kitties from the werewolves across the hall. at least on the plus, i think libby's being more civil to rune.

this got all rambly. but i'm waiting for bright 'cause i have to chat at him. and figure out if we're doing anything after work.

Subject:zomg. i lose at life
Time:1:17 pm.
So, for those of you who don't know (which I imagine is a lot of you), I've taken to bringing my laptop to work, to work on my novel during lunch.

At first, i was going to attempt to bring Dar Oma into the world of novel, until I realized starting with a founding cast well over 50 characters, is not good for a first novel.

so then i had this amazing epiphany a few weeks ago - we've done some amazing plot-things with our covenant RP (because Jen and I make the most beautiful bunnies together) so, why not novelize that?

So i decided to start with the Corrine and Roland and Tom in Tennessee arc. Because it's a good starting point, relatively small founding cast (12 coven characters, 3 family characters, a few NPCs for fun) and a really, really good plot that covers all the fun bases.

The problem?

well, we have this AU comm, with corey, and Roland (no Tom though yet). The au comm and the novel are similiar in a few aspects ... but the comm keeps creeping into the novel. i've had to do some severe editing - twice - because of this.

it amuses me as much as it pisses me off.

so i had to write myself a nasty note in the cast list/note section of the novel. :;nods:: i was very mean to myself. called myself a dumbass.

it was kind of amusing, actually.

Time:7:24 pm.
SO, we were talking about one of my missions in CoH, which was to defeat 15 Council, and 15 Banished Pantheon, and my character is not well suited to soloing - esp. in zones with huge groups - so I was whining about it, and Bright said he'd come help, and we could run the mission before we left, and I said "But it'll take too long to do 30 guys." And he said "And you know this from personal experience?"

Hehe.

Subject:I need ...
Time:8:17 am.
I need a cure for my rampant TWS.

Seriously.

I know, clicking the little link will make me seethe with crazy. But I click the little link anyway. Then I gag, roll my eyes, scream inside my head about how fucking out of character the character is being played, and wondering why no one but me seems to see this. Well, me and people that I know see it.

I don't know why I care. I don't. It isn't my problem anymore. I just...I guess this stems back to my anti-media days (oh, how far I've fallen, yeah?) and tangent. i can't type "yeah?" without hearing it in a Marcus voice. That's scary. Guess he'll be showing up at the barn this weekend. ::Brow waggle:: then he and Chase can get into it. Maybe he'll die. That'd be all anticlimatic and stuff.

So, anyway, back to why I don't care. Why I shouldn't care. Why I need to let it go. Let it gooooooo....it just..is ew, to see an otherwise good character be turned into a raving whore who'll fuck anything. And I do mean anything. But that goes back to the rant of slashing for the sake of slashing, which is ... well, to each their own. And it tangents into pre-existing character pairings. Why? Why would you do that? Why would you start a game with the preset idea that so and so's going to pair with so and so? (or in some cases, why one character's going to fuck the entire cast). It just seems ... wrong. 'cause what if there's no chemistry? Or what if there's chemistry in unusual places?

Best example, of course, being Chase and Ashley. Jen never intended Chase to fall for Ash. I never intended Ash to be a major character. She was just the catalyst so Tyler could figure out he was gay. But things developed in the course of play, and voila! Chase and Ash are probably 60%+ of our posts. Okay, probably more.

Mrrr. I should go set up the guardian post. 'cause TODAY IS MY FRIDAY! boo-yah, bitches! I took tomorrow off 'cause i want me a three-day weekend.

and while I'm updating ... Tangles is getting better. I don't think I actually posted that he was sick, but he was. throwing up and losing weight, and one day he hardly got up at all, so we whisked him off to the vets, but his x-ray showed nothing, and his bloodsugar was in the normal range, so we took him home. After a few days, he started eating (then he stopped again =/ ) but he's been eating fairly consistently now, and he's starting to put weight back on. he was almost skeletal, the poor thing.

Um. Job's fine, boyfriend's good, our internet was freaky this morning (seriously, the light was on, but it would only connect to some sites. no aol, no LJ ::died a little bit inside::, no google, but I could get to neopets, myspace, and parts of the CoH site) but it has since worked itself out.

::ticks off mental list:: rant, check. real update, check.

and it's so time for me to go to work. So, to work I go.
