Aliiiiiiiiive!

Hallooooo, actual blog! I am alive. However I am very poor, which is why I did not do cards or anything for the holidays. :( Also! My family has a new house, but it's a fixer-upper, so that's what I've been doing with my time lately. Updates will likely continue to be scarce, but I still love you all, flist!

Last night I dreamed that I was scheduled a shift at work and that the schedule, rather than specifying me as floor supervisor or guest service or whatever for this shift, said "Meeting Re: [something] Jars" and that when I showed up, it turned out that this meant horse training. LovelyBossWoman informed me that I needed to get these three horses accustomed to this one path we needed them to run. The horses were right outside the office, and the trail was around the back, though some hills and whatnot. This isn't the weirdest work dream I've ever had or anything, which is probably why I had a hard time realizing that it wasn't reality when I woke up. Once conscious, I was kinda worried, because I know fuckall about horses. So I rolled over, grabbed my ipod off the dresser, went to Wikipedia, and was halfway through typing "horse training" in the search before I realized that: a) we don't have any horses at the movie theater; b) if we did no one would ask me, of all people, to train them; and c) if for some reason I was asked to train them, Wikipedia probably wouldn't be sufficient enough to get me up to speed on horsey knowledge.

Calodaemon

I forgot to post a list of what I'm thankful for this year, but here's one thing: I never know what to get my brother-in-law, Calodaemon, for Christmas. It's a source of quite a bit of frustration. I've ended up just sort of helplessly knitting him beanies the last two or three years running, BUT! The reason I don't know what to get him is because he's awesome. He treats my sister right, and he loves my niece and my two departed nephews, and he was a decent male role model for my brother when my father flunked that subject. My family is very lucky to have him in our lives. He deserves a lot more than some standard brother-in-law, I-don't-really-know-you present, like a gift card or a tool set or whatever. (Also, he takes very good care of his tools, and thus they last forever, so that'd be pointless regardless of his amount of awesome.) But yeah, in the end, I'm glad that I don't know what to get him for Christmas.

Congratulations, you are all now friends with a badass cyborg chick.

So I went and got my dental implant today! It was terribly exciting. They used a tiny, tiny ratchet to screw it into my jaw bone, it clicked and everything, I felt like a robot being repaired.

The Cold Commands is out at last and I have ordered a copy and I'm super excited to read it!

Did I mention I have a tumblr? Because I have a tumblr. It's mostly pictures of my nails.

Supernatural tonight! Woooooo!

Also vicodin, that stuff's great.

Uuuuugh

So I've hit that point of the summer wherein I do shit all, all day. I stay up until about 6:30 am, go to bed, sleep till noon, because for some reason my mind thinks it's shameful to sleep past noon (note - 5.5 hours is not enough sleep for meeeee), but I stay in bed until 3 pm reading comics and porn anyways, because that totally doesn't count, get up, go to work, come home @ 1 am, dick around on the computer for about 5 hours, rinse and repeat. I'm not exercising as much as I need and want to, like, not even walking. I'm dehydrated because I can't even be arsed to drink enough water. I'm all achy and sore from laying in bed all day. A lot of those comics I'm reading are things I've read before, because my brain doesn't even want any new stimulation. I do this every year before it's time to go back to school. It's like I'm trying to relax as hard as I fucking can before my schedule fills up, even though doing this doesn't make me feel very good overall.

WHAT'S THAT, LIVEJOURNAL? YOU THINK I'M NOT HANDLING MY EMOTIONS IN A HEALTHY WAY?

WELL SHUT UP.
2011-07-25 02:05 pm

And now to commence the annual moping.

Comic-Con is over. [livejournal.com profile] acehorner is no longer within cuddle range. I shall mope about the house singing Going Through the Motions and Where Do We Go From Here until... well probably until Wincon, to be realistic.

Advice Re: walk of shame

Flist! I want your opinion! I have this idea that for one of the days of Comic-Con, I will wear a Star Trek command uniform shirt that is too big for me, no pants (by which I mean black shorts underneath or something that you can't readily see), muss up my beehive, smear my lipstick, and go as Captain Kirk's Meaningless Conquest. [livejournal.com profile] acehorner is very supportive of this idea, but methinks she's a little biased. So I'm asking you guys.

Fic Rec

Now that the boobs icon has gotten your attention, if you know anything about X-men at all and are remotely into slash, go read As Ever by helens87 right this minute. It's so good, you guys. I had to put it down halfway through to have a good cry, then I picked it back up and had orgasms for days. It's that kind of delicious.

Oh, and happy 4th everybody! Exercise your hard-won liberties by reading the aforementioned porn! (No, for serious. I am truly, deeply grateful, every day, to live in a country where I can't be thrown in jail for my love of gay porn.)
