Wincon is over, and in a minute I won't even be on the same side of the Mississippi as [livejournal.com profile] acehorner, and the people waiting for me at home are all making these rational life choices right now like they thing they're some kind of grownups or something and I feel so weirdly emotional and I caaaaaan't.
I am at le Wincon! After having visited le [livejournal.com profile] acehorner! Pics later - opening ceremonies are in 2 hours, and I have a lot of internetting to do before then!
Finally recovered enough to post. Every year I think it can't get any better, and every year I'm proven wrong. I had such an amazing time. I didn't take any pictures, though! I think I failed similarly last year...

It made me miss [livejournal.com profile] acehorner something awful, though. Usually she's the one with whom I discuss things like watching daddy!kink porn only in order to get your competence!kink satisfied.

Gods... I have notes... and that the-universe-is-MINE feeling that comes with con... but I just don't know what to say about it. Nothing could accurately convey the glory that is Wincon. Princess GagaLeia was at prom, for gods sake.

Everybody should come with me next year.

Erm...

K, so I fell behind on Supernatural last season, and I still haven't caught up. This whole summer I thought I only had, like, five episodes left to watch before I'd be all caught up, but I just checked the episode list, and I have half of season 5 to watch. Soooo... I should get on that before Wincon. /sheepish
The Wincon schedule is posted and HOLY BALLS I'M GONNA BE AT WINCON IN A MONTH! I don't know, it just hit me right now all of a sudden. I am a mushroom cloud of excitement!!
See my icon? Just replace "power" with "fic prompts." I don't know why, but I had this crazy epiphany while I was doing the 4 o'clock numbers yesterday at work, and now I am just replete with inspiration. One for original fic, even.

But anywhoozle! Howdy to new friends from the friending meme! And to all my friends from Wincon, ZOMG I AM SO SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN KEEPING UP WITH YOU. I just checked my friends filters when I did the meme, and I realized never added you guys to the right filter so I haven't been seeing your updates! I almost never look at my flist unfiltered because my filters are purely organizational: I have one for individuals and one for communities. So I'm terribly sorry for appearing to ignore you! I've got you all sorted out now, so you will have lots of attention from now on!
ALL GLORY TO WINCON! )
I do not have to energy to make a Wincon post that will do this weekend any kind of justice yet, but I needed to pass on this rec as soon as humanly possible:

Go read The Steel Remains by Richard K. Morgan right fucking now. It is awesome. It is Cerberus' litter of adorable, killer, three-headed, half-poodle puppies. It's the baby that would be conceived by Firefly's self-hating, scorching hot sex with V for Vendetta. And if that's not enough: it's paced almost flawlessly, and it laughs at itself subtly and beautifully.

Read. This. Book.
Just to let everyone know, I am currently spending my every waking moment fantasizing about this dress, in just about every color combination the spectrum has to offer. Never you mind that the only place I'd have to wear it would be WinProm.
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*
Holy shit it's [livejournal.com profile] brynwulf's birthday! Applause, ppl! She's amazing! Happy birthday!

I have spent all day reading fic. Literally ALL DAY so far. This is partially because I was away at Wincon (I like saying it like that, like Wincon is a prestigious institute of some kind. WHICH IT TOTALLY IS.), and Wincon is so awesome that fic-reading gets put on hold while one attends to it. (HEE!) And also I didn't have a laptop with me. Then, the Monday after Wincon, I started my short term classes, and had this weird 7 - Midnight shift @ work. Then Tuesday I had to take a two hour train ride to the San Diego county HR department to take a test that will qualify me for 5 or 6 different clerical positions. Also on Tuesday my mp3 player crashed and came back missing all my vids, playlists, pictures and about 200 tracks. Then Wednesday I had my Class Voice midterm, babysat Abbie, formatted the mp3 player, and have spent every spare moment since rebuilding my music library. And in a couple hours I will go to work so that I can work the midnight shows of Saw V and High School Musical 3. So I figured I deserved a good 6 hours of fic-reading.

The series of events discussed above have also prohibited any kind of Wincon write-up. But I promise it's coming! I have tomorrow off from both school and work, which is pretty much the eighth wonder of my tiny universe, so I will be getting stuff done!
WINCON OMG!! MOAR LATER. GOING TO BED NOW.
THIS IS FREAKING ME THE FUCKING SHIT OUT. I'M SO FUCKING NERVOUS, NEVERMIND WHETHER OR NOT THIS IS OPTIONAL. I DON'T WANT TO BE IN THE BACKGROUND, I DON'T WANT MY VOICE RECORDED, I DON'T WANT ANYONE TO FUCKING TALK ABOUT ME TO THIS INTERLOPING FUCKER. WTF WINCON?!? I AM NOT GOING TO BALTIMORE TO BE GAWKED AT. I DON'T CARE IF THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A "POSITIVE" DOCUMENTARY, BEING FILMED BY SOME STRANGER AND THEN DISTRIBUTED TO A BUNCH OF STRANGERS IS NOT THE SAME AS HAVING YOUR FRIEND TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU AT CON.* WHY WERE WE NOT TOLD ABOUT THIS, OH, A FUCKING MONTH AGO WHEN WE STILL HAD THE OPTION OF GETTING A REFUND??

AND WHATEVER!! I'M A CRAZY IRRATIONAL WHORE, BUT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BE A CRAZY IRRATIONAL WHORE A FUCKING MONTH AGO, AND REALIZED THAT NOBODY WANTS MY CRAZY ASS AROUND AND DECIDED NOT TO GO.

I'm so fucking disappointed. I've been crying since I read about it. The rest of my life in the fucking shitter right now and I was really hoping that I would be able to relax and recharge at Wincon.

*The people your friend shows that picture to are more likely to just smile and nod and say something like "You look like you had a good time." Anybody and their fucking dog can watch a fucking movie and the average joe, or even the average other fan out there is much more likely to go "Oh, no wonder these fat ugly crazies don't have lives."
Weeeee! I just bought my plane ticket to Wincon! I'm so excited!! Comic-Con made the anticipation more intense somehow. I mean, the two are nothing alike, but they make me feel the same when they are done. I get back home and I remember I need to check my work schedule, and it's like, 'Wow, non-convention life is lame.' And then I immediately commence the elaborate fantasies about buying a big piece of land and having a commune of geeks and fangirls. We'd have a vegetable garden. And alpacas and angora goats. And Angelina Jolie would be our security guard and protect us from The Man. *happy sigh*

Oh, and btw, The Common Fate of All by [livejournal.com profile] gretazreta is so brilliant I can barely stand it. Does anyone know how to go about getting a book bound? Because I want this on my shelf. It's one of those ones that moved me and shit. It's very intensely visual and it calls me back to my disturbed and depressed days when I thought about suicide a lot and was terrified of everything, but reminds me of the happy ending those days came to. They were bad crazy times, but I appreciated beautiful flowers a lot more back then. (I'm not trying to be poetic or anything, I mean I really just appreciated flowers. WTFever, just read this fic; you'll understand and you won't regret it.)

Confusion!

Omg, I feel like I have no internets focus. I want to talk about fandom, about rl, about bellydance and knitting and world peace. I have also been meaning to do a picspam and an icon post! Plus I still haven't mailed [livejournal.com profile] iamstillthemoon's hedgepig because I suck! Gah!

Wincon should have a costume ball. With prizes for things like "Most Canonical." Also, in the future, I should not know anything about or make any plans for Wincon until, like, a week beforehand. I have trouble concentrating, I'm looking forward to it so very much.

And speaking of, Abbie is clearly a Dean girl: )

I am so in love with this place. Their salads are amazing and their service is wonderful and their premade food is cheap and delicious and healthy and perfect for taking to work or school.

I'm gonna change my layout right after I post this. I think I'm going to use something from [livejournal.com profile] thefulcrum. I hardly ever just copy and paste a whole layout without tweaking it to suit me, but I really like her designs.

SO CUTE OMG!!

I have spun up the fiber I bought when I was being bad, and determined that it is too light colored for Juno Regina. So I bought some Briar Rose Angel Face in these gorgeous deep reds for it. It'll have this combination Little Red Riding Hood/majestic thing going on.

The other day MamaGoddess took Alejandro to Costco with her. He got a 4 pound bag of Jolly ranchers, which went straight up to his room when they got home. This morning he comes downstairs and goes, "Dude, my mouth has a pH of like, 2."

This wasn't the picspam I had planned, but what the hell. I've been wanting an excuse to post random bellydance pictures for a while now. I've collected these over the years off of various websites and without ever writing down any proper credit or anything like that, because I'm a lazy bum. None of them are mine, I'll just say that.
Bellydance picspam! )
(And hopefully these demonstrate that if a bellydancer were to do her thing in a strip club, s/he would probably be booed off the stage. So if I meet you and I tell you I bellydance, do not respond immediately with some comment about stripping, strip classes, or your friend/ex who is a stripper.)


Now that I've got all that out, maybe I can do something constructive for a change.
Wincon has been moved from Boston to Baltimore, due to something called "Regatta." This takes me further from lovely Canadia and lovely [livejournal.com profile] xtinethepirate, oh noes! It's truly RIDICULOUS how excited I am about this con. I daydream about it, for pete's sake. I've decided that I'm going to get a fandom tattoo while I'm there (as part of an ongoing tl;dr personal type thing I'm doing): the alchemical symbols for salt and iron, probably on the insides of my forearms. So I need to find an inked native Baltimorian fangirl to direct me to a reputable parlor. And I don't think I have one on my flist. If you have one on yours, plz to be informing me?

In addition to being totally delicious, sour cream apple pie is unbelievably easy to make.

Wincon is likely to be held in Boston this year.

I need coffee.
[Poll #1114440]

On the one hand, self-striping yarn in stripes is awesome. On the other hand, horizontal stripes are not so flattering.

I look good in red. And that blue is gorgeous. But pink is a more traditional pin-up sweater color. *ponders*

ETA: I should probably add that I totally plan on wearing the pin-up sweater and some little reading glasses and these shoes all over Wincon next year and proclaiming to all within earshot that I have dressed up as that which keeps Dean from driving Sam crazy while he researches things. Practically canoninical, yes?


It graces my sidebar now!
