Calodaemon

Nov. 29th, 2011 03:50 am
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.

WAAAAAANT

HAPPY

ST. PATRICK'S

DAY!
Here's what happened: I decided I wanted to make valentines like I did when I was a kid. But I slacked off something awful, and I ended up with not enough time to make a leave-your-address post to collect addresses before I needed to send off cards. So I decided that I would only send valentines only to people who had previously exchanged mail with me. But then there was some confusion about rates and the exact speed I could expect from those rates, and in the end I don't think any of them got there on time. So in a pitiful attempt to make up for all that, both the people who didn't get valentines on time, and the people who won't get them at all, please just know this:

Tomorrow I am going to some kind of Scottish Festival with two very fine female coworkers of mine. I have been led to believe that there will be haggis.

Tonight will spend getting ready for the [livejournal.com profile] ontd_startrek Valentine's party post.

Go me. XD


I NOW HAVE PICTURES OF SHIRTLESS HUGH JACKMAN DOING YOGA ON THE BEACH. 2010 IS AWESOME SO FAR.

Yay!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!

I kinda want to add a "And to those who don't: blah blah blah" after that, but I can't think of anything funny. I was just thinking of Owl in Pooh's Grand Adventure: "I salute you! And those of you doomed to never return: I salute you twice!"
This is just a very brief overview of a few (fairly) recent events. Most of the time I wasn't the one taking pictures, so I don't have as many as I'd like from some of these things. But anyhow! Onwards!

Wincon 08! )

Halloween! )

December Birthdays! )

Christmastime! )

OMGDUN. *collapses*
I have returned to internets. I missed you all very much. One of my major resolutions: Comment more. I have always been a lurker, and that is going to change.

Big photo post coming up soon, from Wincon to Christmas.

Got an email from [livejournal.com profile] tangledupintry saying she's going to be in town, so this year is already looking awesome. XD
We're out of milk. On Imbolc.
BPAL! I has some! I got a bottle of Love's Philosophy, and imps of Whip, Aeval, and Pannychis; plus Himerus, Dee, and The Bow & Crown of Conquest, to try for Sam scents. For frimps I got Robin Goodfellow, Two Five & Seven, Dragon's Claw, and Chuparosa. Even the frimps seem terribly appropriate for me right now. I'm normally not this into Valentine's Day or romance at all, but I've just been a sucker for it lately. There's this couple I work with, and every time I hear GuyHalf talk about GirlHalf, I go all stupid and melty. He's the only non-single male I've ever known who doesn't spend 50-98% of his conversations complaining about his girlfriend. I've never heard him say a word against her. But anyways! I got an extremely bad head cold the day after my lovely BPAL arrived, so I've only gotten to try Love's Philosophy. Thus far my review of it is as follows: NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGH. KHNA[O;IWERN. 9WR8HN. NNNNNNNGH. MOAR.

I have a new SONG OF MY LIFE OMG! song. It's by The Parlotones. Please excuse the talking at the beginning, it was hastily clipped out of a podcast, as I cannot seem to find a place to buy the cd.

I want this! I'm all about the voices of inanimate objects, and it's so adorable and proud! It's like, "Look! I changed!" But they don't ship outside the UK, and I couldn't find them anywhere else. Curse my lack of money and British citizenship! I went to my campus store for recycled notebooks instead. *iz a happy, but not ecstatic treehugger*

I'm all caught up on Torchwood!
Omg, it feels like I haven't posted in forever. *clings to flist*

I think my little absence is best explained with pictures. )
I am thankful for: )
So, I work a long closing shift on Halloween. That doesn't suck as much as you think because we're allowed to wear costumes, and I'm working guest service so I get to sit down and goof off the whole time. Plus it's not like I'd be doing anything else for Halloween anyway, besides the religious stuff. I was thinking my brother and I might dress up together: he'd be Wash and I'd be Mal, from Firefly. They would be easy thrift shop costumes. I just need boots, a brown duster, and a red shirt. (I already have suspenders and pants.) We'd get Alejandro a Hawaiian shirt and some dinosaur toys, and we'd use that orange hairspray stuff.


[Poll #1078460]
Have I mentioned that two of my classes were canceled, conveniently after the add/drop date? This leaves me with some time on my hands, which I am choosing to fill with lots of pointless but interesting research. Also, when [livejournal.com profile] xtinethepirate made me that glorious shirt, I got inspired, and made some stuff: )

And I'm making stuff for the raffle @ Wincon!! I'm excited, I hope ppl like my stuff. So yeah, aside from vibrating with fangirlish anticipation, that's what I've been up to.

What should I dress up like for Halloween?
Am thankful for:

My family (MamaGoddess, PapaBear, Oro, Fedora, Flora Pecosa, Calodaemon, Miles, Plumie, Alejandro, Wifeypants)
The fact that all my family (except Miles and Wifeypants T_T) is here right now
My flist, and their vast amounts of sweetness an awesome

I read somewhere that if you lose x amount of sleep, you are legally intoxicated. And since friends don't let friends post drunk, you all should stop me from posting right now.

Anyways, slightly belated blessed Samhain or whatever you other heathens celebrate. Insurmountable Beckworth gave me her usual new year's call and whoa, she's pregnant. Also her marriage is going swimmingly. I think that's a spiffy way to start a new year. :)
