I'm totally in vacation until the next monday, where I'm starting that training at the gym that's in my 2011 resolutions.

I didn't have much to watch while eating at home with so few interesting series currently on air. Someone recommended Macross Frontier, I started watching it and I LOVE IT.

Tomorrow, I'm going to watch it again. I like things with dragons a lot, but this was SO CUTE and it made me SO HAPPY. I want a Toothless of my own, he's so adorable and loyal and free!

It was an awesome movie, it made me decide to check out more 3D animation movies too --- good thing, I was able to catch on the awesome that is Megamind and Tangled (Both pretty recent).

happy things!
Well I just read in the paper that people appear to be dropping meth. Weee!
Heroin usage has increased! Awwwwww!

I found my beauty kit, the rest of my wax supply, clothes I haven't seen in years and my coat is perfectly dry cleaned. It's going to be very cold tomorrow when I take the train out to MEW but as long as I'm in the lounge, it's going to be a happy ride for me and everyone around me. If all else fails I'll just crawl into a bottle at Union Station for a few hours before heading out to the hotel. We managed to pick up one more girl to stay with us so it looks like everyone that wants to go will definitely be there. I think we might actually reach an attendance of 700 this time. Weeee!

Miraculously, my costume fits, my packed clothes are free of lint and any cat hair so I feel really good about this. My body finally healed up too. I'm going to take so many photos and it's going to be a really fun party. Especially for everyone I meet. :D

After living with a gorgeous Jewish girl for so many years and being under her influence, I've realized this about buying stuff;

I'm happier with the money.

Hmmmm... 10 things that make me happy...

1. Random hugs from my kids.
2. Putting my feet in the ocean and smelling the salty air.
3. Puppy breath.
4. The little squeaky noises baby hedgehogs make when they are happily nesting.
5. Wildflowers in the springtime
6. The sense of accomplishment when I finish sewing something and like how it turned out.
7. Prayer and meditation.
8. Catching up with old friends.
9. Soaking in a super hot bath.
10. Tide pools.

I have the best boyfriend in the world and I can't wait to go to college next year where I'll be much closer to him and will be able to see him much more often~ ^^

Everything to be happy for:
1 wig confirmed, 1 wig still a maybe but I just need the first, and then they're mine.
I beat Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood in Two days, and that makes me all happy.
$50 Victoria's Secret giftcard, my favorite colored lipstick, and $100 shopping spree with my mom for Christmas.
A gay, campy novel from one of my good friends for Christmas.
I'm on book 5/14 of the Wheel of Time Series.
I'm surrounded by mostly good people who I have loads of fun with, and I can't wait for New Year's with some extreme silliness and shenanigans.
Winter Guard started, and we're doing the song 'King of Anything' for our show.
We got first place at SCSBOA championships against 11 other bands. (SCSBOA=Southern California School Band and Orchesta Association)
I might have a chance at getting a partner.
I'm dropping in weight, sort of. Well, I'm getting skinnier but my weight is increasing.

I don't actually think it's possible, but we'll damn well try)

I had a retainer and then invisaligns when I was in my late 30s. It was great and worked wonders! :) My stepdad started with invisaligns last year, and he's about to turn 50. Definitely a nice option when you feel too old to wear traditional braces!!

a few things actually ^_^

1) i took care of both of my bills for the month on this first half of my income, so the next one is all for fun! (i'm raiding joann fabrics lol)
2) the cheating/stealing ex finally got all of her things and is moving back into her parents' house, so she has no reason to contact me anymore. good riddance. i just wish i'd gotten my clothes back, but they really aren't worth the headache
3) my kid goes back to school this week so i will have some time to sort through the rest of my stuff (which got spread all around the house from said ex getting her things) and storing what's not being used. i really don't like being unorganized
4) as soon as my w2's come from last year, i get to e-file my taxes, which means i will have quite a bit of money for planning my annual con pilgrimage ^_^

My late-Christmas-present-to-myself PS3 arrived!

Now I just need to name her.

No, seriously, I name ALL my hardware, so this is important XD. Any suggestions?

lol my old desktop computer is named "desktop dinosaur", my monster laptop is named "portable beast", my psp is named "poor man's laptop", and while my (suicidal) phone doesn't have a name the thing i say to it most often is "please stop jumping out of my pocket and into puddles, i don't have the money to replace you". really, i bought a jar full of rice JUST for drying my phone out because it happened three times last year. thankfully i can get a new one in a couple months ^_^ android here i come!

That's not too bad, my first real job, I got a phone call for an interview a full year after I had applied.

Seriously, I had applied as I was in my last semester back in college to work part time, never got word back. They actually contacted me when I had long since wrapped up school XD

this is totally cosplay related on my part, but its not always a cosplay product... I got my Underworks Tri-top Chest Binder today... less then 40 hours after I ordered it... to Canada... God I love FedEx! so I'm pretty sticken happy on THAT, but as a bonus, it FITS AMAZINGLY! I'm not flat but I know I'll never get that being a 36-38D, what I care about is that it gets me JUST as flat as other binding methods get me, with NO PAIN or difficulty breathing... there is NO velcro, so I dont get cut into by that, and there is no boning or wiring, so I'm not getting poked all the time because of my short torso... I just hope it doesnt stretch too much over time... though it was only $42 with that amazing shipping... so if it only lasts 6 months with my obsessive crossplay (I wear cosplay 5-6 days a month on average), then I am more then happy to replace it with the same at that time... I'm glad I listened to my gut and got the Medium though... my measurements were at the low end of large but something told me to get the medium... I'm SOOO glad I sized down... or else I might have been MUCH less happy XP

I keep trying to get someone to play Brief, but so far, no takers. Or for Garterbelt. My son is going to be Chuck and my daughter is going to be Panty, and I'm going to try to have those for us for Naka-Kon in February. I should be able to get Chuck done by tomorrow and Panty by next weekend; that'll leave me 3 weeks to sort out Stocking. I do have my Honekoneko done! I might end up eventually making fastener for my other son and turning my youngest daughters into chibi demon sisters. It's kind of fun to have my own built in cosplay group :)

I love that you name your machines. Like cars. :bigtu: Marlene is a great name.
and that is creepy that your Pfaff come to the shores along with Jack the Ripper. ;) I think it would be even funnier if you sewed nothing but frilly silly things on it. ;)

Okay, I think it needs more... fancy bits (Lace, clearly it needs some lace... or a fringe...) but the overall structure came together really quickly and easily. I could have done it in one day if I hadn't decided to mess around with bias ruffles.

quick question: why bias ruffles as opposed to cutting the ruffles across the grain or along the length/selvage?
usually I have to squeeze the most out of the fabric I have, so I don't often cut on the bias since that tends to be the least economical use of space. I know cutting on the bias is important for things like edge binding (bias tape) and certain dress types, but why for ruffles?

1. Bias ruffles run much better than straight when sewn vertically or on curves, which is exactly what I was doing with this (Up the seams instead of around the edges)

2. Striped fabric. Bias = more interesting stripes!

I knew about #2 (I've seen some awesome Victorian-inspired work done with creative use of stripes), but I didn't know that about #1. Very cool! thanks so much for sharing that. It'll be good to know when I need to use ruffles in either manner. :D

It's funny how you can sew all sorts of things and there's still a whole world of stuff you haven't yet encountered.

Despite having health issues, I passed all my classes this semester. : D

My Underworks compression shirt arrived, and I can see my feet. It's so much more comfortable, and is faster than my old binding methods, and gets me to an A/B. : DDD

The table's getting cleaned off, so I can finish sewing things/start sewing things~<3

It's a three day weekend & I'm getting pizza.

Definitely. Kato rocks!! Seth Rogen was kinda pathetic in his role. He was merely a sidekick to the awesome Jay Chou! I loved that the dialogue was so hilariously bad.

I also remembered why I don't prefer 3D; it's cool but it gives me mild motion sickness :(

Agreed. He is the only reason I want to see that movie. I really don't think that Seth Rogan fits as the Green Hornet at all. D:

So. I am a fiction writer. I write stories. Occasionally someone looks at my shit and says, "Gee whiz, I'll publish this!" for the grand prize of *no* money.

And I'm totally okay with this. Because that's how writing works.

So one day I thought, "I CAN TOTALLY WRITE POETRY!!1!" having never done so before, let alone even read any poetry ever.

So I submitted some crap to a local contest. THREE MONTHS LATER. Yeah, I lost. Big surprise. Oh, wait, you WANT this? Are you SURE?

OMG, they want TWO poems. No money, of course (don't be a downer, kthx!), but my god, you want MY poetry? OMG. EPIC. I'm not really sure what to say.

Except thanks, of course. I am always, without fail, utterly shocked when people want my stuff. Srsly.

So. Freakin'. Happy.

I live in a server closet and every day looks like one big math problem for at least two hours of my day. I am not amused. :/

I finally replaced my damn coil! Weeeeeeeeeeee! :D

The old one is so nasty it's beautiful. Still has part of the American logo on it and it aged gracefully across 30 years. It's not useless but it was causing problems that I finally solved.

I have figs, ginger, hamburger, apricot and cola. My uncle decided to visit today so I'm happy. He's so wise it hurts. <3
