 We had to have my oldest cat put to sleep at the emergency vet on Friday night. He was ten. He suddenly developed this thing called feline infectious peritonitis which fills the lung cavity with fluid. No real treatment, no vaccines, no tests for it. Just pops out one day like O HAI I  HATE YOU. It's been rough, but I've stopped bursting into tears every time I find a stray Scooby hair, so that's pretty awesome.
So, things that are infinitely less depressing. Josh has a second interview for what would be a REALLY good job on Monday, so we're hoping that works out. I have discovered there is a store near me that sells Japanese candy. They have Pocky and Hi-Chew and something else with a panda on it that I couldn't read but was delicious.

Things for sale

 I signed up for full time classes in the fall, and I've randomly decided to take Japanese! It should be fun learning it with an accent like mine, haha.

Unemployment! It really agrees with me. I actually think I work harder now than I did when I had a full-time job. I've almost got my sewing machine setup going.

Wish I had something interesting to say, but alas. I'll close with a picture from my mini garden!


I have not been on LJ in forever. TT__TT But I lose my job next week, which I'm actually looking forward to, and classes let out soon so I hope to get back to being around. :D

p.s. IBC root beer is awesome <3

 Shew. Life is kicking my ass, folks.

I'm getting laid off from my 3rd job in a row! Apparently I just know how to pick them. Even more fun, there is another person with my exact same name in our Indiana office, and shortly after I started I got a raise that was intended for her (payroll fail). I'm terrible with finances and failed to notice it, so they picked up on it when they were giving me my actual raise almost a year later. I now owe the company I work for money, which they are taking some out of my paycheck every 2 weeks for. Plus, they're not giving me my severance from being laid off.

So that's fun. I'm trying to see it as an opportunity! This fall I am going to look at going back to school full time. I will be finishing up a business degree with a concentration in logistics. Tech support (what I currently do) is not as glamorous as it may sound... which I'm sure is not glamorous at all. It's difficult because people want to call you for help and then argue with you when you tell them what to do. TT__TT

Video games! There's been a slump there lately. Josh got me Fable III for Christmas, which I played the crap out of, and I haven't been in the mood for anything. Probably means I'm going to play Mass Effect. PLAY IT NAO, so good. :dies:

Books! I read War and Peace and it was very good, if long.

I think I'm going to go knit and watch something. A picture post is forthcoming!



So behind on everything.
I'm starting school again, woohoo! I had not missed the expense of books, but it's a necessary evil. What kills me is that I paid $106 for a book THAT IS NOT EVEN A BOOK. It is a sheaf of papers wrapped up in plastic that I had to buy my own damn notebook for. I'm nervous but excited about it - been about 4 years since I've taken any classes.
Uh, I still haven't seen Inception. It's on my to-do list.
My neighbors have a backhoe and are drinking beer and clearing brush. I might want to investigate this.
Ever since you stopped being able to see her (you refuse to think this of this as blindness because it sounds so permanent and in this wide world of alchemy and miracles surely you will be able to see her again), you’ve taken what you could get. Soft steps, in perfect military time, walking from your bed to the nurse’s station and back again. The scent of skin, a slight tang of gunpowder, a note of something rich and fruity. Not at all what you’d expected, but somehow it suits her.

Cannot sleeeeep.
It occurs to me I need a mood theme.
... but I'd sure like to find out, so why don't you climb down off that movie screen? 

The Counting Crows show was awesome. They're not very high up on my favorite bands list, but they put on a great show. I was so close I could have chucked a shoe and hit Adam Duritz.

So, a meme about fangirling things! andreaphobia gave me xxxHolic, Tsubasa, and FMA. If you want to, comment, I will give you 3, and we can fangirl together <3 Also I have been drinking and these things are fun when I am in a mind-altered state.

01. The first character I fell in love with: Doumeki. Duh.
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Kohane. I thought she was going to be annoying but I was surprised!
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Himawari. She's bad news and doesn't seem to have... anything interesting to do. All she does is mess up my 104 and that is NOT COOL.
04. The character I love that everyone else hates: :looks guilty: Watanuki. I can't help it; he's just so emotionally retarded I want to pat his little dumb head. 
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer: The only one I don't like is Himawari. Everyone else is pretty cool.
06. The character I would shag anytime: :see question 1:
07. The character I'd want to be like: The grandma fortune teller lady. I don't think they've ever given her name.
08. The character I'd slap: Himawari, closely followed by Watanuki even though I like him.
09. A pairing that I love: Doumeki/Watanuki. It's odd because I usually don't like a whole lot of slash pairings but CLAMP knows what they're doing.
10. A pairing that I hate: Watanuki/Himawari - she's bad news, man, get away! Go run to Doumeki!

FANDOM: Tsubasa
01. The first character I fell in love with: Kurogane!
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Fay
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Sakura. She annoys me.
04. The character I love that everyone else hates: Who's hated in the fandom? I don't know T____T
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer: Um, Syaoran I guess? He seemed cool at first then he got boring.
06. The character I would shag anytime: Kurogane again XD
07. The character I'd want to be like: Not anyone in there that I'd want to be like, really.
08. The character I'd slap: Fei Wang Reed, because he couldn't plot his way out of a paper bag.
09. A pairing that I love: KuroFay
10. A pairing that I hate: Syaoran/Sakura. It's just so dull.

FANDOM: Fullmetal Alchemist
01. The first character I fell in love with: Lin Yao
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Edward
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't: Alphonse. He's cool and all I guess, but I'm just kind of :meh: about him.
04. The character I love that everyone else hates: HOW DO YOU HATE ANYONE IN FMA?
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer: (see above)
06. The character I would shag anytime: ...Hoenheim? I don't care if he's old, he's a good-lookin' man.
07. The character I'd want to be like: Izumi Curtis. She is badass.
08. The character I'd slap: Probably Mustang because he needs to get on with gettin' on Riza.
09. A pairing that I love: Mustang/Hawkeye. And Ed/Winry. I know, I know, but they're so damn cute. Oh and Ling Yao and Lan Fan. There are just too many!
10. A pairing that I hate: It is blasphemy to hate anything about FMA XD

And I'm going to include Harry Potter because a) I can and b) because I have a HP tattoo ; )Collapse )


Thought I'd update, has been awhile.

I just finished a new pair of socks and the first season (of the reboot, anyway) of Doctor Who. WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO WATCH IT? It's pretty awesome.

I haven't been watching much anime lately. The end of FMA has made me sad so all I want to do is write bad Roy/Riza fic. I would also write bad Ed/Winry fic but there's so much of it out there already lol. I can't help it, I love those two. I'm also still working on an original thingamajig, but it's nowhere near readable.

I have go to work, but at least it's my Friday! I'm leaving Wednesday to go see the Counting Crows in Charlotte, which should be fun. I'll try to take some pictures.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
