senashenta: (DEAN APPROVES)
Silver And Sapphire

Go join! So far it's just me and 'Sethi! We need more people to roleplay with~ ;A;

Anyhoo, other than S&S I haven't really been doing much of anything. I did go and look at a mobile home the other day, though. They're really reasonably priced and I'm seriously considering just purchasing one. The cost per month for the mortgage would be about the same as an apartment, and it'd be nice to own my own place.

The one I looked at has sold already, but I got a lot of info on those kind of homes, and today I went and talked with someone at the bank about mortgages and whatnot, so I know what I'm getting into and what my cost cap is when it comes to looking at homes.

So there you go. That's what I've got going right now. So exciting. :| lol.

HOMG! I totally just finished setting up a whole LJ RP community! And it's a Valdemar one!

[ profile] valdemar_main

It's called Silver And Sapphire, and that's the link to the main page. I finally decided that I needed more Valdemar RP, since all the avidgamers comms got lost when that site went down forever ago. I missed Valdemar RP. We had some really good ones back then! I'm hoping S&S will get to be as good a community as some of the ones from back then. :3

I'm playing the Grove Born and one other Companion so far. I plan to have at least one human character as well, later.

Anyway, any Valdemar fans on my f-list, go and apply for a character!

Well, I have Nyoka home now, safe and sound! Haha, she's so tiiiiiiny! Like Lee said, "[he's] seen worms bigger than [her]!" She's maybe six inches long and as big around as a pencil. ^__^ But then, two months back when J&K got her in for me she was only a day or two old. She's adorable and has such pretty markings! I took some pics, so I'll post them maybe tomorrow or the next day. ♥

So the guy from J&K dropped Nyoka off on Saturday around noon. Then on Sunday, I bummed a ride from Lee and went out to Critter Cove, which is an awesome fish/pond store out the other side of town. It's way beyond walking distance (especially in the winter), and while I'm sure there are busses that run out there, I seriously have no idea which ones. =/

Anyway, I originally just went out there for a couple of catfish for the tank since my six little ghost shrimp weren't enough to keep the bottom sparkly clean. Basically, I'm finding that to keep the piranha from picking on the other fish I need to feed them at least twice a day (sometimes three times), which means quite a bit more mess that needs picked up at the bottom, and the shrimpies were having trouble keeping up. *shrug* No big deal, I just added two cory cats to pick up the excess, and since I added them the water quality has gone up tons, and the whole tank is functioning a lot better, so it's all worked out. :)

But while I was there I got a few more little fish to add more colour, activity and visual interest to the tank. So along with the two catfish, I got two tiger barbs and four cherry barbs; both small, fast fish. Tiger barbs are orange/red with vertical black stripes, and cherry barbs are orange/red with darker horizontal red stripes. Very pretty. The cherries school with my remaining cardinal tetras, and the tigers... well, they take after their name. They're quite brave and aggressive, especially when it comes to food. They even bully the piranha sometimes, which is kind of funny to see because the piranha are obviously like "WHAT IS THIS FUCKERY? >/" but they also always end up running away because the tigers won't back down. XD;;

It's been quite interesting keeping fish again, especially with the piranha. I'm experimenting with different fruit and veggies with them, and while they don't seem all that happy with the potato I've got in the tank right now, they really liked the orange I gave them a couple of days ago. Mostly though, they've been doing great with the tropical fish flakes and bits of meat/veggies to supplement. They were particularly excited about the chicken neck I gave them yesterday afternoon.

Basically, they get bits of whatever meat we happen to be having for dinner lol. ♥


And now because I've just rambled about animals and pretty much nothing else for the last few entries, a brief update on how other things are going:

I'm settling in alright. Still have a few boxes to unpack, but I'm 90% there. On Friday Mom and I have to take a truck load of stuff to the storage unit because I've found a bunch of things that I don't have to have here, and really, my room is pretty crowded as it is.

Tonight I finally got out a hammer and put up the two wallscrolls that I brought with me (my KH one and my FFVII: AC one-- I sadly had to put all the rest of them in storage ;A;) and the two bulletin boards (again, the third one had to go into storage), so it feels more like home here again. Blank walls just don't do it for me.

Unfortunately in the process of packing and moving, the frames for two of my LoZ prints got broken. ~_~;; I had planned to put them up too, but for now they're all piggybacking in Midna's frame so that they don't get wrinkled or ripped. Eventually I'll get new frames for Link and Zelda and then I'll put them up.

I also have one other print that I got at Matsuricon that I want to put up, which I still need to get a frame for. And my artsy cat photos are going up at some point too. But for now at least I've got some colour on the walls.

Aaaaand right now I'm watching a TV box set of ESPU episodes. Yay for animal shows, even if this one makes me angry because it's about poaching. (STUPID POACHERS.) =/ Or, at least, it's about the anti-poaching unit in Africa and their work.

Oh, and I had a little extra money this month and was sad and depressed and everything sucks right now so I cheered myself up by adding to my figure family; I got formation arts Riku, and formation arts Final Form Sora. YAY! 8D

Speaking of... am hoping to get back into rping some more soon. I don't think I'm necessarily up to joining an actual LJ RP yet, but I'd love to do some one-on-one rp with people. Will probably bug Maddie and Chloe for Kyo and Roxas Shinra!RP. *nodnod* And maybe Steph will do some rping with me with Tetsuya or Iniko or Tokiya. >.>

EDIT: And I keep dreaming about Tri. Once I dreamt that someone brought him back from the brink of death with magic and he was back with me again. Then another time I dreamt that I was going to school (my old elementary school, go figure) and he and Loki and Neko all followed me to school, so I was trying to find them around the building. I found Tri first and just held onto him so tightly and wouldn't let him go even when the teachers said I had to put him down for class. That type of thing. I guess I'll have dreams like that for a long time, probably...

EDIT #2: Hmm, just looked up how to (externally) sex ball pythons and sand boas out of curiosity. Then I checked Aya, and am 90% sure he's definitely a male. I think Nyoka's a male too, actually, but s/he's still way too little to tell for sure and I'm certainly not an expert at these things. I don't really care all that much either way, it's not as if I plan to breed them or anything. I mean, if I really wanted to know that badly the people at J&K said they would probe them for me when they were big enough. *shrug*

Also? Have been looking at African Soft Furred Rats because ASDGH LOOK AT THE CUTE!! X3!! I want some of these, and there's even a breeder a couple hours from here where I could get them for $10/female $5/male. But I don't think I could convince Mom to drive me that far just to pick up some rats. XD;;

EDIT #3: I am so totally not looking into Hog Island Boas now. Or Blood Pythons. Or Carpet Pythons. Nope not at all. I think I'm officially addicted to snakes. >>; I'm looking for smaller snakes still. Hog Island Boas and Blood Pythons seem promising, but I'm iffy on Carpet Pythons. They're gorgeous, but even the smaller breeds (like the Irian Jaya, which average 4-6 feet) have the potential to reach up to 13 feet long. =/ (They are arboreal though, which would be very cool.)

senashenta: (Durr...)
The last couple days I've been feeling kind of icky. Not sick, just... off. Bah.

So I haven't really been doing much of anything aside from watching movies and some rping with Michi. lol we're still rping in KH-zombie!verse. It's been over a year and a half now with the same rp. Then again, we're planning to piece it together into a fic, so the length and detail makes sense given that. And I can actually start doing that now that I have Squall and can load Microsoft Word. Yayz! ♥

Anyhoo, yesterday was groceries and this time I just needed a handful of things. Canned cat food, litter, kleenex, milk and etc. Then at Walmart I got a couple more packs of mini-ornaments because Walmart has a TON of pendant-worthy ones this year. On Saturday (when I have more monies) I plan to go back again as well. I also want to look for some Christmas gift stuff for Lois and Lee.

I'm actually mostly finished my Christmas shopping already. But I don't have anything for Lee yet (I know what I'm getting him, I just have to actually buy it come the end of this month) and I only have half of Lois' gift ready. I might pick up something else for Mom as well, if I can find something small-ish.

I also need more Christmas cards. I only bought a pack of 12 to begin with, and it turns out I need more like 20. xD;;

Aaaaaand then tonight I watched the new episode of Criminal Minds from yesterday, then the movie Dinosaur (an oldie but a goodie!) and now I'm watching Darkness Falls (another older one that I ♥ to bits~)

Tomorrow I'm going over to Mom's place to do laundry and talk to her about Christmas baking, as it's getting close to time for me to get started on it. As usual I'm making chocolate macaroons, no-bake fruitcake (for Mom; no one else eats it :P) and shortbread. I'm also making lemon cream cheese cookies again because they are ASDGH DELICIOUS. But I'm not sure what else. I think I want to try some new recipes this year. Maybe I'll try making some kind of biscotti! 8D
senashenta: (Durr...)
Aaaaand once again I fail at keeping up with this thing. Jeez. I used to write in my journal every day, but then Twitter came along and I just let my LJ go by the wayside. However. I WILL WRITE IN THIS EVERY DAY AGAIN STARTING NOW. Barring illness/death and/or Internet/computer crash, of course. *fistshake of determination!*

1) Haha lol, it's been cold and rainy/snowy the last few days (in May, wtf?) but today it's nice again (just a little chilly with the wind) so my door is open right now, and the cats are all congregated around it as usual. XD; Just now I heard the neighbour in the next apartment come outside, and start gushing over how cute they were and telling them how handsome they are. I was sitting at the desk here just smiling to myself. It was kind of adorable. ♥

2) SPEAKING OF KITTEHS. Just over three weeks ago (it'll be a month this Friday) there were a couple of stray kitties wandering around aimlessly outside the house. I took some food down to them and they wolfed it down like they were starving to death. Then later that night it started getting cold and they were still wandering lost so I decided to try to catch them and bring them inside for the night. I caught the grey one, but the white-and-tabby one wouldn't let me near him.

Anyway, so the grey kitty stayed in my back room for a few days and gobbled food like it was going out of style. I also brushed him out since he's long haired and it was all tangled up. He turned out to be a really lovely cat. Right, so he was Back Room Kitty while I called around to all the vets and the SPCA, and walked around the neighbourhood looking for Lost Cat posters. I couldn't find anything though, and now I think they were dumped.

So then I had this cat (which I called "Nameless" for the first two weeks just for lack of anything else to call him) and of course because I'm a soft touch I ended up falling in love with him. So I now own another kitty. He's about five or six months old (approximately, I don't have his exact birth day; and he's HUGE for his age lmao) and I named him "Arjuna" after a Hindi god of destruction. Loki and Tri have taken to Juna now, and even Neko only hisses at him once in a while anymore. :)

3) My hair is really short nowadays. I got it cut a couple months ago. It's in an angled bob, which means it's cut really really short in the back and then gets longer the closer it gets to the front. Also, I dyed it blue-black a while back and even though it was supposed to be permanent, it only lasted a month. Bah.

Oh, heh, the only problem is that with my hair this short I need to purchase some spirit gum to hold my cosplay wigs on, since there isn't enough hair to pin them in properly in the back. xD;;

4) I FINALLY got another set of shelves for the kitchen. It only took six months. Now my food and pots/pans are, yanno, ORGANIZED. \o/ I am SO much happier with the kitchen now. And this may sound strange, but I was standing in said kitchen today looking around and suddenly, after so many months, it abruptly hit me that I AM LIVING IN MY OWN APARTMENT. It's kind of a holy shite moment. .__.;

5) A couple weeks ago I was really super sick. I caught this flu that lasted for like eleven days and had me hurling everything that I put in my brand new mini-stomach. It sucked. I was exhausted and had huge bags under my eyes and was so vitamin/mineral deprived that my hands were shaking like a speed junky. I came very close to going to the hospital, but then as fast as it came on it just disappeared again. I woke up after over a week of violent illness and just randomly felt fine again. Go figure.

6) I'm working on things for selling at Otakon and Matsuricon this summer. Jewelry and hairpieces, both the beaded chopstick kind and these cute combs and barrettes that are being made with faux flowers/ribbons/beads/etc. And I need to do a few more ponies as well, possibly KH related or D.Gray, or something like that.

Travel wise, I need to buy my plane ticket down to Baltimore next month. I'm not entirely sure how we're going to get from Baltimore to Dayton and then from Dayton back home though. Need to talk with Maddie and Chloe about that again, since I believe our original plan has had to be retired for one reason or another...

I can't really plan much for cosplay this year because of my weight loss between now and then. None of my old costumes will fit, and there's no point in purchasing new ones just to have them be too big a month later. So this year is casual-ish costumes, or ones that can be thrown together at the last minute; Sohma Kyo, Hetalia!Canada and BOYS!Riku, as well as casual!Demyx at the aquarium of course. :D

7) Been rewatching Grey's Anatomy the last two weeks. I'm officially down to the last half of the current season. 8D

8) Last week I went with Mom to Toronto, since she had a follow-up appointment after her operation back in the fall. It wasn't a big deal but it's a long drive and I went along just to keep her company. But still, she had her exam and talked to the doctor and she is COMPLETELY CANCER-FREE. X333!! They got it all when they did the hysterectomy, so she's cuuuuured and I'm so, SO happy about it!! YAY MOM!! ♥♥♥!!

9) And from Mom's health to mine! Since the operation I've lost 45lbs. The dietician I spoke to last week said that it's going well and by the summer I should be down 50-60 more lbs as well. Then the weight will taper off so I'll lose the rest that I need to slowly over the next six months to a year.


10) Today I need to take photos of the rest of my SM stuff that I'm still trying to sell, and then I'll post it on ebay this time instead of just in my LJ. It's going to take forever to post everything but I really need the money, and preferably some of it by the end of the month so I have some more cash for AN on the 29th.

12) Steph: Your package is finished finally, and ready to be mailed! It's full of goodies and sugary stuff, so share with Reppy, k? ♥ Mari: Your package is like... 99% finished. I'll be finished with it and mail it at the end of the month, so I'll need your address between now and then. No big rush though. :)

13) Michi and I are still email rping. We have several misc AU worlds that we're inflicting on characters. KH!zombieverse is the biggest one thusfar, but we've also started a military!AU and we have this huge long Loveless/TWEWY!AU, but it's still in planning stages and is quite complicated lol. We're having fun though~
senashenta: (A Little Strange Because I Am)
Yeah I fail at like... everything online lately. I've been having a lot of trouble irl with various things, which I may or may not get into in this entry. Anyway, list format today for the sake of my sanity because I have a fuckton of stuff to talk about since it's been so long since I last wrote anything. xD;

1) ANIME NORTH. Okay, basically I spent the whole weekend at my table trying to sell jewelry and pony commissions (since I wasn't allowed to actually sell the ponies there). I sold a bit, and got two commissions (Van from Escaflowne and Reno from FFVII. XD), but the way Artist Alley and Crafter's Corner was organized this year was RETARDED, and the Corner was way the hell out of the way so we got practically no traffic. SO ANNOYING. Anyway, all that work and spending that much time at the table, and I basically broke even for the cost of the con registration, the table, and the parts that went into the jewelry. So much for making money for Otakon. -__-;

Anyway, that aside, I got to see Mel and Zexy again. :3 I went to a D-Gray photoshoot with Mel on Friday, and to the Moonlight Ball with her and Bonnie on Saturday night for a while. I didn't get to see Zexy as much, but she stopped by my table twice to say hi and give her her present~

On Friday I wore my Org13 Demyx outfit. It was INSANELY HOT. DAMN PLEATHER. And I forgot my gloves at home, so I just wore my shark/dolphin rings instead. *shrug* I also didn't have my boots because the morons I ordered them from backed out at the last minute. This was remedied Saturday morning, though, when I found awesome bootcovers in the Dealer's Room. Then Saturday during the day I wore my casual!Demyx outfit. Did I mention I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new wig? It's so awesome there are no words to describe it. And it fits perfectly, and stays in place all day, it doesn't even budge. >w<~ Anyhow! Then Saturday night for the Moonlight Ball I wore my Haine cosplay. Sunday was Org13 Demyx again for a while, then last-minute casual!Lavi that pretty much all came from my closet lol.

I didn't buy a whole ton of stuff like I do most years because I was trying to save monies for Otakon, but I did get four boxes of pocky, a Riku plushie (I always get myself a plushie at AN), and about 30 buttons. XD; A bunch of KH ones, some FFVII ones and some Ouran ones. Also, one booth had kitty buttons and the proceeds from them went to a cat rescue, so I got myself one of those. Then I got three more the next day to send to people. XD; Oh, and I got some henna done on my arm. It's faded out now, but I took pics of it~

Various photos from AN. Haine cosplay photos when I get around to getting some from Mel or raiding my Mom's camera. >>; )

2) ON THE WAY HOME FROM ANIME NORTH. Two things happened; first, I was looking out the window of the van and actually saw a songbird attack a hawk in midflight. It was spectacular and I couldn't believe it. I've seen that kind of thing on Animal Planet, but I never thought I'd see it IRL. WOW.

Second... I broke a knuckle in my right hand. >__>;; I caught it in a booth when we stopped for food. It was all bruised for a while and hurt like a bitch, but I didn't bother going to the hospital. *shrug* Which was fine until a couple days ago when I smashed it off a doorknob and re-cracked it. xD; *FAIL OMFG*

3) OTAKON. Well... I didn't make any money toward Otakon at AN like I'd wanted, but I still managed to finagle out a way to pay for it. GO ME. Basically, I'm not paying my parents rent for next month, and then paying double in August. I'm also borrowing $300 from my Grandma, which I'm paying back in September. Ugh more debt but fuck it, I'M GOING. XD; So I've already paid for my registration and my plane tickets (NO 26 HOUR BUS RIDE FOR ME THIS YEAR), which completely maxed out my credit card two weeks ago, but you know... whatever. >>; It'll get paid off at the end of the month.

Maddie love, let me know when you have a tentative total for the stuff we're doing in Dayton and gas monies and everything. ♥

Cosplay for Otakon! Org13 Demyx and Haine for sure. Also, I think I'm going to do Riku cosplay from BOYS, just for kicks and to see how many people get it. I could trim up my Suigintou wig a bit and it'd work for Riku totally fine. I NEED SOME HEMP BRACELETS AND STUFF. I SHOULD GET SOME HEMP AND JUST MAKE THEM MYSELF IT WOULD BE CHEAPER. I also need some gray arm warmers to go as fake long sleeves under the t-shirt so that I don't have to wear layers lol. Also, yakuza!Kadaj, complete with pinstripe shirt and fedora. >D

I'm also bringing about six other wigs in case myself or anyone wants to do impromptu cosplay of anything. My Kyo wig for sure, and my blonde pigtail one, and probably my blue one and maybe my red one, though I got that one for Axel cosplay (next year maybe), and I don't want it to get messed up between now and when I have a chance to style it... hmm. Must think on this more.

4) B-GRADE MOVIES. After AN, we stopped at Dad and Lois' place to say hi and see teh doggies, and I borrowed 24 b-grade movies from him. XD TWENTY-FOUR. AWESOME. Some of the best ones were The Burrowers, Alien Raiders and Decoys (the second one is bad though.) I also borrowed Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which I LOVED. ♥

5) SORA AND RIKU. Last week I had to take my rats to the vet. Riku was diagnosed with pneumonia, and the vet gave me antibiotics for him... but unfortunately, he died the next day. It's sad, but he was in a really bad way, so I'm kind of glad he didn't suffer for long. Sora doesn't seem to know what to do without him, though. Also, I had to treat Sora for mites today. That's no big deal, though.


7) FEET. Last Friday, my feet and ankles swelled up to twice their normal size. As in, I had no discernable ankle, and could barely walk because of it. =_=;; And they stayed that way until TUESDAY NIGHT. WTF? I have no idea why, but it was a pain and a little disturbing on top of that. I had a doctor's appointment yesterday though, and the doctor wants me to go for bloodwork, since it's possible my meds are the cause of the swelling. Yep.

8) DOCTORS IN TORONTO. A while back, I mentioned about going in for gastric bypass surgery. Last month I went to the initial consultation in Toronto, and then earlier this month I went for the appointment with the social worker and dietician. I still have to go to a gastric bypass class, and see an internist before going back to the surgeon again, at which point my surgery will actually be scheduled.

Things are actually coming along rather well. The only big problem right now is that my Grandma is really against it. She doesn't think I should do it. But then she thinks that my weight issues are my fault. It's bad enough that strangers assume I'm lazy and don't eat well, but having my own Grandma think that really hurts. She keeps giving me lectures about exercise and eating right-- I already eat right (even the dietician was impressed), and I exercise as much as I can but with my legs the way they are, it isn't always possible. I have to walk with a cane, Grandma, it's not like I can just break into an easy run. *sigh* I really need to talk to her about it, but... I know I'll just get another lecture about not trying hard enough, and end up crying for two days over it. I dunno...

9) THE YARD. Mom has decided this summer that she's sick of the back and front yard (what little we have of them, this is just a townhouse after all), and wants them to look really nice. So we've all been working on the yard for the last month, putting down sod and seeding and watering and pulling up weeds. Also, in the front yard we lined the sidewalk with quartz stones, with solar lights along the other side. Then next to the door we planted a little cedar tree, with more quarts around it. Yep.

10) ROLEPLAY. I haven't been rping as much lately, with everything IRL. I was supposed to be back from hiatus at TV like a month ago. I really need to get back there before people get sick of it and I get kicked out.

I have, however, been rping some zombie!apocalypse-verse Kingdom Hearts with Michi over email. It's hilarious and fun. Plus RikuRoku, which makes me happeh. :D And I've been rping with my bb Kiin over at [ profile] losechesters, which is a comm Kiin set up for us for "Winchestertastical" roleplay. I'm Sam and she's Dean and basically it's just for the sake of crack. It's SO much fun. Which reminds me, I need to think up another post for there... >.>;
senashenta: (Rokachu)
Apparently, I suck at keeping my journal updated lately. I used to be so good about it too. But I don't know... I've been really down lately, and not feeling up to doing anything. I haven't been on aim much either and I've just been rping a little with one or two people. I'm considering going on partial hiatus at TV until I get myself straightened out again.

Not much had been going on lately. I've been working on stuff to sell at AN, and fretting over whether I'll have enough money to go to Otakon this year or not. I'm really hoping I will, but with not being able to sell my ponies at the table it might not happen... but, I'm currently finnegling with my finances to see just how much I need to sell to be able to go to Baltimore (and then to VA and then to Dayton) so fingers crossed.

I am currently watching Eden Log, which is going so far over my head it might as well be a jumbo jet. XD; I'm going to have to watch it again and try to figure it out lol.

A few days ago I dislocated one of my toes. I slammed it into the stairs by accident. At least it popped back in on its own. Still hurt like a bitch though. BEHOLD I AM THE MASTER OF PERSONAL INJURY. Also, of not going to the hospital for dislocated joints because they happen all the fucking time wtf body.

RP talk, so if you don't care don't bother reading past here. More actual life-updates later on once I've thought about what I want to say.

We have a new Axel at TV, and I've gotten sucked into the AkuRoku trap. XD; I promised myself I wouldn't, not because I don't ship them together, but because it's pretty overdone at this point. Ah well. They're cute together, and Roxas is totally the man of the relationship which makes me laugh constantly. Also, tonight he got into an argument with Kanda, and the two of them spammed Axel's journal with it. lmao.

House is being his antisocial self, though he does get along rather well with Ziva (I totally ship them now, w2g TV you've ruined my in-series ships), and he's agreed to tutor Lenalee in math so long as he can call on a favor from her at some point in the future. He may get her to do something cruel to Remus, as he's still holding a grudge against him from way back when puppy!Remus chewed his cane up.

Dean is currently being crabby over the new event (school, yay?), and refuses to go, so he and Faith are going to hide out in the room with booze and porn and probably trade Hunter/Slayer stories. Faith demanded he share his porn and Dean was like "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?" I still wish I had a Sam at TV though, Dean secretly worries about him.

Aaaaand Michi and I are doing a RikuRoku rp right now that takes place in the zombie!verse from the apocalypse!KH fic I'm in the process of tinkering with. XD; I get to play snarky/bitchy!Roxas, and that makes me utterly happy because he's too nice most of the time in TV (and he was the same way at RY, except with Axel lol.) RPing in it is really helping me flesh out the zombie!verse, so to speak, so I'm happy with it. :3
senashenta: (Spring Unicorn)

A closeup of Neko that I took earlier today. I like it for some reason.

Got Roxas up and running at TV, and Dean and House working again. Yay for being active. Michi and I are doing another rp as well. ♥

Yesterday, Mom and I did a few errands and while we were out we ran into one of Grandma's friends. I didn't think about it, but I had my cane with me. Today Grandma called and was worried because I hadn't mentioned the cane to her, and Mom says she was hoping it was because of an accident or something, and was upset to learn that no, I'm using it because my legs and back have declined a lot the last few months.

That conversation lead to me chatting with Mom about various things, generally depressing myself, and then crying over how fucking unfair the world is. -__-;;

Other than that... not much to report. I'm tired, but I have a new episode of Supernatural to watch before I crash for the night.

EDIT: House missed his posse. And thus is building a new one. XD I'm probably more amused by that than I should be. lol.
senashenta: (I Like Him He Says Okie Dokie!)
Neil Gaiman is on The Colbert Report tonight. Haha.

Well, in the three days after I put Loki's first set of soft paws on him he managed to pull them all off. But I put another set on him today and in the 7 + 1/2 hours since he hasn't lost any. I'm hoping he's getting used to them.

I feel like RPing smut. IDK which character or anything, I just feel like it. :P It's possibly Kadaj being whiny about wanting distractions from his angst right now. Anyway, anyone want to indulge me? XD;;

I'm going to read over some of the old ND threads, and try to write some more scenes. I miss ND terribly. We had way too much fun with it. ^_^; I also plan to attempt working on some fics again. I'm determined (once again) to try to work through my writer's block!

Oh, and I'm working around the new rules for Crafter's Corner, in that I can take commissions and stuff at my table and sell my ponies out of the hotel room. XD; Screw you AN people! I'm going to bring some ponies to work on while I'm there too, to pass the time. It was kind of boring last time, just sitting there for hours on end. I'm bringing some things to work on earrings as well.

I pulled out my cosplay stuff to try taking a few pics just for the heck of it yesterday, but then I got sidetracked and never got around to it. I'll probably do some tomorrow...
senashenta: (Just Obsessed)
My Haine costume came in today. I'm happy. It all fits really well, with the exception of the shirt collar needing a tiny bit of adjustment, which I can probably get help with from Grandma. ♥ I'm very happy with the outfit and the quality of it. I can't wait to wear it at AN. :3

And I got a fedora today! I found one at Giant Tiger. ) >w<~ I love the purple striped band, but for yakuza!Kadaj I'll have to cover over it with plain black ribbon. *shrug*


Today was also the day that registration for Crafter's Corner at AN opened up, at 8:00pm. So I sent off my email. Here's hoping I get a space this year. If I don't I probably won't be able to go to Otakon, so...

Finally... I guess it was coming, but it's official now; RY is closed. It feels almost like closing the door on an entire chapter of my life, since it lasted so long. Heh. (Trust me, it makes sense at least in my brain.) R.I.P. Rizumikaru Yomi!
senashenta: (If You Still Believe)
So today I've decided to watch the Saw movies. Or, 2-5 anyway. I've avoided them all for a while because I watched like half an hour of Hostel a couple years ago and couldn't finish it because of the horrible, horrible torture sequences (I actually gave it away ASAP after that, hope you liked it Sethi? XD;;) and then just after that Sui-chan told me Saw was just as bad if not worse. So I crossed them all off my list of movies to see. XD;

But then a couple months ago I caught most of the first one on the TV and it wasn't nearly as bad as all that. xD;; The problem with Hostel was that it was torture and that is a big problem for me. Just violence doesn't bother me so much, and the Saw movies seem to be more about plain violence and mental anguish.

Anyway, so I watched II and III earlier and now I'm on IV. YAY. Then later today I have The Uninvited to watch.

Oh, last night I talked with Michi a bunch. ♥ ILU MICHI. I don't talk to her enough. /random

I guess RY is mostly dead now. It makes me sad. I love that place, but it's just... gone downhill a lot the last couple months, basically since we went on hiatus. *sigh* I'm sticking through until it's totally dead, though, or possibly if Steph and Maddie want out I'll talk with Mari about things we could try to get it going again. Hmm.

But if it completely dies, would people be interested in rping out some of the stuff we have planned anyway? We can do it over AIM or I'll set up rp threads in my own journal or something? Because I really want to at least do a couple logs with that vacation that Asch, Luke, Kadaj and Axel are supposed to go on. And some more stuff with Haruhi and Roxas. Things like that. Thoughts on that, people I rp with?

Now I need to get back into TV some. I was supposed to be off hiatus forever ago. But between being sick and... well, frankly, depressed as hell, I haven't done it yet. I'm going to get kicked out if I don't get back there asap. *sigh* is such a nice day out I actually have my window wide open for fresh air and it's not freezing. SO NICE.

Also, I want spaghetti. IDK why, I just do.

EDIT: Beginning June 1st, I need a passport to enter the US, even if I take the bus. =__=; Stupid US. But I just checked the government site and apparently if I get my application in asap it'll get back to me in 4-5 weeks. I guess on the plus side, if I actually get off my duff and get a passport I can take a plane to Otakon instead.
senashenta: (Axel + Roxas chibis wut)
1) I woke up super early this morning for NO REASON. And have been wide awake ever since. WTF body. So I'm going for a walk in a few minutes. *shrug*

2) Insanitarium: Almost a zombie movie. Yay for cannibalism? Reminded me of 28 Days Later.

3) Ghost Town: Very funny. I had a lot of good gigglefits over this one. Extremely... unusual humor, though. Probably not for everyone. XD; *is weird like that*

4) I randomly had the urge this morning to plan a cosplay outing to Wonderland. BUT I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO LIVES CLOSE ENOUGH (AND DOES COSPLAY) TO COME TO IT. I LIVE IN THE MOST FAIL PART OF THE WORLD FOR COSPLAY UGH. Okay, probably not. But still, it's frustrating. DX Because cosplaying to an amusement park would be awesome fun! TT__TT

5) For anyone who's interested, I read a really amazing Axel/Roxas ric this morning. Deceitful Above All Things. Seriously. AMAZING.

6) Roxas/Haruhi is going to make me laugh so hard, I swear to God. Poor Roxas. It will be epic. Kadaj-muse is secretly relieved and not feeling as guilty over the whole Haruhi thing anymore. Ignore the Roxas and Axel banter at the bottom. My Roxas finds Michi's Axel extremely annoying. And it probably won't make any sense unless you read their other conversations anyway. XD;
senashenta: (Even Darkness Must Pass)
Been a while since I posted. Haha, I spent so many years writing in this thing every single day that lately when I haven't been writing in it much it seems weird. I go to post and realize it's been ten days (or whatever) since my last post and am surprised by it.

But recently I haven't been up to much... I'm actually quite sick right now (it's really TMI though, so I'm not going to elaborate.) I spent all last week trying to get through to my family doctor and failing, so I think I'm going to have to just break down and go to the Emergency Room, and probably have to endure at least one rather uncomfortable test that I can think of.

In the mean time, I was on hiatus at RY and TV, but my health always sucks and I can't be on hiatus forever, so I came off at RY yesterday and plan to come off at TV tomorrow. Being so sick the last while has really sapped my energy though; I'm not getting any nutrients or anything from my food right now (when I can even eat), and I've probably been taking too many pain pills. I've practically been living on cream-of-wheat because it's so bland and easy to digest. I still don't really feel up to much rping, but it's not fair to camp on characters if I'm just going to be away all the time. Plus I have to get back into helping with mod stuff at RY.

Anyway. Today I gave Sora and Riku a bath for the first time. They flailed around a little and generally went D8 at me. It was adorable. But they did need a bath. And I'm hoping if I do it often enough they'll learn to like playing in the water, or at least to tolerate it. They really liked being wrapped up together in a towel afterward though. ♥

I finished Foundation yesterday. It's the new Heralds of Valdemar book by Mercedes Lackey. I didn't realize how much I'd missed Valdemar until I started reading it (lol two days ago, I read for like 12 hours straight. XD;) Maybe now I can try writing some fic again? It'd be nice to work through my four-years-and-going writer's block. But I'm not holding my breath. Not being able to concentrate to write and draw is part of being bi-polar, and just reading a new Valdemar novel won't magically cure me of that. I wish though!

Today I found a copy of Razorback in region 1 NTSC format on ebay. Dad and I have both been searching for that movie for months now, and all we can find are copies on ebay that are region 2 PAL, which won't play on North American DVD players or TVs. So I'm hoping the seller will ship to Canada, but if he replies to my question about it and says no, Maddie says I can get it shipped to her/Chloe's place and then send them the money to forward it. >D

And now random pictures just for the hell of it:

Loki and Tri have a night of drinking, apparently. )

Nazoko. Still looking like Bella. I need the right wig and eyes for her, desperately. )

EDIT: It's getting pretty close to the day I'm taking Loki in to get his back claws done. The closer it gets to time, the more bad I feel about it, even though it's for a medical reason. Every time he comes and cuddles with me, or purrs at me I feel guilty. DX
senashenta: (Freaking BATMAN)
I am ever so glad to be feeling alright again. Granted, it was just today (yesterday, wtf lack of sleep tonight), but THANK GOD. And then of course last night I didn't sleep at all, so even though I didn't feel sick, I was tired as a dog. Ugh body I hate you.

Still, I managed to get the cats in to the vet for their appointment at two, and everyone is pretty much fine so that's good. $272 later, they got their shots, and I talked with Dr. Taylor about Loki's allergies and the idea of getting his back claws removed. He scratches his face all up, to the point where his ears swell closed, and his eyes are all rimmed with scabs, and I'm worried he'll cause permanent damage. There's nothing we can really do to get rid of the allergies (since they're seasonal; he has allergy problems the same time as I do), but at least with getting his claws removed he won't be able to hurt himself anymore.

I know; I hate the idea of back-declawing him. But after two years of different medications, shots, ear drops, shampoos, soaps, etc., the vet says it's probably about the only thing we can do. I've agonized over the decision for almost a year now, but having discussed it with Dr. Taylor today I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to have it done. He's going in the beginning of next month. It's going to cost me another $170.

Last time I mentioned getting a cat declawed I got an anonymous comment about how cruel it is, so for anyone who feels the need to comment this time: THIS IS FOR MEDICAL REASONS. I WOULD NOT GET HIS BACK CLAWS REMOVED IF BOTH I AND THE VET DIDN'T THINK IT WAS NECESSARY. Thank you.

Watched Resident Evil: Degeneration, Max Payne and Red Sands today. Now I'm watching Mirrors because I can't sleep. At least I have good movies to keep me occupied.

Also, as I haven't done many real updates lately, I went to see the doctor about two weeks ago; she checked me out, switched my meds around a bit, and diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Yay for chronic pain disorders. -__-;

...and I think I might have to take an official hiatus from RY and TV for a while. I want to keep playing, but I'm a basketcase right now for various reasons. I think I'm going into a major downswing, which I haven't had in a while... my new meds aren't strong enough, I don't think. So I might take a break for a couple weeks to kind of collect myself. Of course if I feel human again sooner than that I could come back sooner... gah, but I hate going on hiatus. It always makes me feel like I'm letting people down. ><;

The space bar on my keyboard is sticking, and I broke my computer chair the other day. >__>;
senashenta: (I'm Only Acting Strong)
I've been really randomly depressed lately. I guess I'm always depressed, but... more so the last couple weeks.

Fake-happy, fake-happy, so people won't worry.

All the stuff with RY right now isn't helping either. I'm getting really upset over it all, even though I know I shouldn't. I've cried over it twice. I'm such an idiot.
senashenta: (Demyx (fanart))
So I finally managed to get my apps finished for [ profile] taediumvitae_rp. It took forever, between moving and baking and family issues and everything, but YAY. Now I play Dean Winchester ([ profile] escapeperdition) and House ([ profile] thecaneisnotart) over there. Kekeke. House is so hard. XD; But fun! And Dean is awesome to play. Now I just need a Sam and I'll be set. ♥

Tonight was half-spent RPing (Demyx with Zexy, and a little with Michi as well in a different rp, and then Dean a bunch and House some. Also some ND with Cassandra-san. :3), and then after/around that... more baking. =D;

Michi and I are rping Demyx/Axel. Which, I mean, is made of awesome, right? Except Dem is topping sort of, which is crazy and also really hot. O__O; Plus there's angst in there too, which just makes it even better. XD; Turns out I have a think for uke!Axel. Who knew? XD

I finished off 12 dozen lemon cheesecake cookies tonight, and now I'm doing what is (almost) the last of the shortbread. I still have one more batch to make tomorrow or the next day, but that's it. After this, I still have to do fruit cookies, lemon squares, buttertart squares, and broken-glass torte. Way to go right to the wire, self. >>;

A reminder, all the Christmas packages for people are going to be late. Sorry. But I am sending them. So yay for packages after Christmas? IT EXTENDS THE HOLIDAY, DAMMIT. XDD;;
senashenta: (Too Cute For Words)
Hehe, I promised Sora pics and look I'm finally delivering! ♥ He's so adorable and I luff him to bits. He's not afraid of the cats at all... he actually chases Neko, it's hilarious. XD; What a chickenshit cat. <33

More pics be here. )

He reminds me of Yuki so much, except Sora has about 50x more energy than Yuki ever did. Then again, when I got Yuki he was much older than when I got Sora, so I suppose that's probably the major difference.

Right now he's in his cage making eyes at me because I haven't given him any treats yet today. >>; He has me so whipped.

EDIT: Oh, btw, at the Petsmart the other day I almost got another rat to be Sora's friend. Around here you can't get anything other than hooded rats (and occasionally albino ones like Kori was), but I really like solid-coloured ones, and the Petsmart had the most adorable grey-blonde one. I wanted to bring him home so badly, but the cage Sora is in right now isn't big enough for two rats, and I don't have the space in here for any of my bigger ones. Too bad. I would have named him Roxas too. XD;

EDIT #2: OMG there's an RY rp!secret today and I'm in it! ♥ Along with Reppy, Maddie, Meev, Chloe and Nikki. X3 ilu anon! <3
senashenta: (Roxas: content smile)

Finished earlier:

40 dozen shortbread cookies
10 dozen eggnog cookies

Still to go:

4 dozen shortbread cookies
6 dozen lemon cheesecake cookies
3 dozen peppermint snowballs
3 dozen eggnog cookies
4 dozen chocolate macaroons
2 dozen buttertart squares
3 dozen lemon squares
2 broken glass tortes
2 last-minute fruitcakes
1 dozen faux-peanut-butter dainties

Christmas cookies for people... are going to be late. DX I can't mail most of them out until after my new credit card comes in. SORRY! SORRY! TT__TT

Oh, but on the plus side money-wise, I just had a girl contact me about $150 worth of pony commissions. :D FFVII ponies, too! X3 SO MUCH FUN WILL BE HAD WITH THEM OMG.

That aside, I spent a good three hours this morning while I was still baking comment-rping with Michi. Three different characters in five different threads. XD; I need to transcribe the one Roxas and Axel one, at least, and probably a couple of the others as well. The epic Rokachu and Axsol convo. xD;;
senashenta: (Durr...)
I wasn't feeling well most of the day yesterday, so I pretty much slept all day. I was up for a couple hours in the evening though, long enough to do an AIM long with Maddie, Reppy, Katie and Cassandra-san. ♥ It was drama-rific. xD;

The only thing I ate yesterday was a bagel. Still not hungry, but I made some vegetarian lasagna anyway because I know I need to eat. Also, out of boredom, I put together a stew to cook in the slow cooker for tonight. The bunnies got lots of veggie trimmings.

Tonight I'm probably going to get baking again. I still have shortbread to do, plus other cookies and stuff as well.

Been up since 4 this morning. After sleeping all day yesterday I guess it makes sense. I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep, so I'm puttering around, watching movies and rping and stuff to kill time. Today is vampire and werewolf movies. 30 Days of Night, Skinwalkers and right now The Forsaken. Fun stuff.

Yesterday morning the red wig I ordered for Lavi cosplay at AN (and possibly/probably Otakon) came in. It's the perfect colour, but longer than it needs to be, so I have to trim it, and then style it so it sticks up where it's supposed to. In January I'm ordering a pair of boots for Lavi and Org13 Demyx; I'm going to use them for both cosplays, and just add the white to them for Lavi with tape or something. Yay cosplay. ♥

Along with some stuff I ordered for people for Christmas, I also have a few things coming in that are just for me because I wanted them and happen to have some extra money this month. >.> A copy of the movie Werewolf Samurai because I just couldn't pass it up. WEREWOLF. SAMURAI. FUCK YEAH. Also a Suzumiya Haruhi figma figure (that I think is in scale with my Kadaj figure so I'm tempted to take lulzy pics of them for Pronnie), and a playarts Axel figure from the third formation arts set.

My next accuisitions will be the Axel figure to go with my Roxas one, and Reno from Advent Children. :3 Then a bunch of other ones because there's like fifty KH/FF/misc figures that I want.

Oh, and completely random, but I asked for Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for Christmas. DO WANT. Also, Tales of the Abyss, which I can't find anywhere dammit.

EDIT: My formation arts Axel just came in. :D He's on the shelf next to Agito now. ♥

EDIT #2: ...I just fell down the last half of the stairs. I bent one toe backward until it popped out of joint. Luckily, it popped back in on it's own when I flexed my foot. But fuck, that hurt. I hate it when I dislocate joints. ><; Before you ask, yes, it's a relatively common occurrance. >>;;
senashenta: (Just Obsessed)
Alright, so over at RY, I play Roxas (among other characters), and [ profile] fantacination plays Axel. But because it's an AU game, they didn't knew each other, so we actually had to introduce them, which was rather amusing. ("Haha" is Axel for "Haruhi" btw, so Suzumiya.) Now they're having this conversation (starting off about Roxas' new pet) which makes me giggle for reasons I can't quite identify:

Axel: ...A pig. You're one of a kind, aren't ya?
Roxas: What was I supposed to do, tell the old lady to shove it? >|
Axel: Hmm, well there's always ham and bacon, I guess.
Roxas: *facepalm* She's a pet, you idiot. Not a midnight snack.
Axel: Works either way, right~?
Roxas: Depends on how heartless you are, I suppose. >__>;
Axel: Hey, hey, I've got a heart. I just don't guarantee it's always in the right place, yanno?
Roxas: Suuuuure you do. *eyeroll*
Axel: *flicks lightly* Oi, shouldn't you be a bit more polite to your elders~?
Roxas: *swats at* The term elders refers to people who deserve respect, you know. :P
Axel: Guess you'll never get to be one, huh~? So what, you have a little list? Or were you gonna rely on your trusty piglet to tell you?
Roxas: Oi, I have a better chance than you. XP I can tell on my own, thanks. >>; The pig is just a houseguest.
Axel: Suuure, shortstuff, looks like a long wait either way, hn~? What you're gonna keep it in your shirt and not let it earn it's keep?
Roxas: Yeah well, we'll see about that. Of course not! But just because she's sleeping in my living room doesn't mean she gets to influence my opinions. She's a pig. XP
Axel: That's the spirit. Ouch, demoted to the couch already? That's no way to treat your beloved pet! And calling her names, too. You must be a ladykiller.♥
Roxas: She's not my beloved pet. She just got... dropped on me. Though she is kind of cute. And behaves herself. And I woke up last night with her in the bed with me, and it wasn't so bad. ...shut up.
Axel: ...*rofls* So she does sleep with you, then. ♥ Hope she hasn't torn your teddybear to bits~? Aww, chibi-chan actually has a cute side~
Roxas: It only happened the one time! >///< And I don't have a teddy bear, jeez! Roxas. Rox-as! >__O
Axel: Ah, so that's why you're cuddling Ayu-yu, now? I don't know, Roku-ass, maybe you should look into your little bed problem.♥
Roxas: I don't need something to cuddle, nevermind Ayu! And I don't have a bed problem. =__=;; My bed is fine, as am I.
Axel: Hey, hey, it's okay, no need to be shy about it~ Nobody'll hold it against you if you still wet the bed or anything. Much. ♥
Roxas: I'm starting to wonder if maybe you're projecting your own problems. XP
Axel: Who, me~? I'd tell you to get eyewitness accounts, but they probably wouldn't let you in the clubs 'till you grow six inches.♥ *ruffles hair, pushing downa little*
Roxas: D< *flails and shoves at him* Hey! Stoppit! I'm not short!
Axel: What do you call all the inches between your head and mine, then~?
Roxas: Clearance so I don't have to look at your face. :P
Axel: Whoa, easy there. You've got issues, ochibi.I hear milk's good for that. ♥ Besides, clearance works both ways, dontcha think~?
Roxas: You're my only issue. -__-;; ...Says the guy who won't leave me alone. If you don't want to look at me, go away. :p

*snortsnicker* I love Michi's Axel. ♥
