You know what? I've had a terrible week; my dad died, I may have failed two midterms, sex just is NOT HAPPENING the way it should, and on top of it all slammed my most used finger (index finger, right hand) in the car door so hard I'm gonna loose the nail BUT the thing that makes me happyright now? That THIS:



is finally here again.

Please make me feel better and go vote for Emily Fitch (because she's a sad emo redhead right now, like me, and because Skins is fucking AWESOME) and Samantha Carter (because she's loosing to Dean fucking Winchester who won last year and honestly? SAM CARTER IS WAY MORE BAD ASS THAN HIM, that is all).

Vote because you love me, kay? It's like the only thing making me happy this week and I'd hate to see my favorite loose (mainly Emily because almost all my other fave womens are winning right now)

Oh- and martin? I only have your work number that I can't really find in my call list and I don't know if I can make it to coffee so I'll do my best to get a hold of you but i'm sorry if I can't. I'll facebook you, too.... See above bad aspects of life; mainly that I have serious family shit to take care of via international calling b/c most my dad's family is in Canada and by law, I'm in charge of things being his eldest child so.. I have a lot to do, all of which makes me want to cry.

I just realized what I've committed myself to this holiday season... yuletide, NaNoWriMo, and a possible pgsm exchange on top of my goals to finish Dichotomy, a loooong overdue birthday fic, and this new project that has been eating my brain lately. I am super enthusiastic about doing these things but thank god I'm not going to be working for the next 2 months until school starts because, especially in November, it looks like I won't be doing much beyond writing, drinking coffee instead of sleeping, forgetting to eat, and more writing. Oh god, the excitement, the panic, the joy: Let the games begin!

I decided to do Yuletide this year. It's so freaking huge, it's ridiculous - Just reading the FAQ and going through nominations is daunting for me as a single participant, I'm genuinely amazed at how much work the moderators must put into it. Fandom is so awesome to me, there's so much heart and work put into things like yuletide for the simple sake of sharing something you love with others. What a wonderful byproduct of the communication exchange via the internet.

In Other News, I got my hair cut and colored with highlights and lowlights. It's the first time I've ever really done that and it loooks gooood. I really needed a change to help reflect how different I feel on top of needing a personal confidence boost after gaining a ridiculous 20 pounds while living with my family. Granted, I had needed to gain a little as I was sickly skinny this past year but not that much, damnit! Though, honestly, my boobs do look great now so I can't complain too much.. ;)

Also, my favorite thing at the moment: Scratching the Surface by Vhils (art video, not a music video)

First, Watch this:
Girltrash! Episode 1; pulp-fiction lesbian noir set in a campy criminal underworld featuring foul mouthed and ass kicking ladies.

Written and Directed by Angela Robinson, L Word writer and mastermind behind D.E.B.S, created this fucking awesome webseries a while back for ourchart.com before it sold out to showtime. If you go to the myspace page for it you can watch a movie-like version of all the episodes edited together seamlessly, but I find that it has better appeal in it's original episode breakdown. It's been confirmed that instead of continuing in a webseries format, it's been picked up to be a full movie. Fuck yeah!

Read the Rest of my Rambles, as I finally have posted!Collapse )

Sometimes, you just need sock puppets to serenade you. These are for you, babe!

Just say "Whatever" to all your woes...



And all together now... yay for Fake Blood!



And don't forget.. we've got a date with a frosty mug of beer, just name the day. Much love, babe!

ETA: Fixed the link for the second vid; technical difficulties. :)

Pairing: Rei/Minako
Summary: The title sums it up quite succinctly, I do believe. :)
Author's Notes: Oh, lj is dumb and made me put it in two posts and for some reason wouldn't just link to my picasa stuff straight out, so I had to do the little embedded images you have to click on to see. :) Oh, damn, it's like 13,900 words! WTF, I didn't realize it had gotten so big... I am one wordy bitch...
Disclaimer: Sailor Moon in it's various forms is the intellectual property of Takeuchi Naoko while concepts and original writing belong to me. Illustrations were done graciously by sammeex
Dedication: This story is officially dedicated to mmmels, for her birthday. BUT, This is also dedicated to you,sammeex, for being the most awesome imouto ever. :)
Glossary:

nemaki kimono – Light, sleeping kimono. Pajamas.
Sofu – Personal term for “My grandfather”
Oji-sama – Formal term for “Uncle” or “Mister”
Kannushi – Shinto Priests; this term used to refer to a type of Priest specifically, but it has become a common term for Priests in general.
Tatami - Traditional Japanese mats.
Shoko Asahara - Head of the Aum Shinrikyo, now known as Aleph, a cult which grabbed media attention in 1995 for releasing Sarin gas into the subway system in Tokyo; it was the biggest attack on Japanese soil since WWII.

Author's Notes: Alright. So, here's the birthday present. :) I'll post it to fanfiction.net, as well, but I'd like to have it looked over before then (Trupe? Sorry about it before, I just never got the chance to send it that weekend) so here's the file that Mels received, errors and all. In my defense, I haven't had the chance to even look back over it after I finished it in a rush before my first rescheduled date with Mels... so, yeah. :) Oh, lj is dumb and made me put it in two posts and for some reason wouldn't just link to my picasa stuff straight out, so I had to do the little embedded images you have to click on to see. :)

Mels is a badass. That's really all I have to say; if you don't know her, you're missing out.

My takeout box of Chicken Sawarma (schwarma. SCHAWARMA. Damnit.) is going to be immortalized in my fridge for weeks, I tell you. This has everything to do with Mels and not my aversion to leftovers, I promise. :)
