In no particular order:
  • Hanzo still regards snow as no big thing. What snowbank plowed behind me? VROOM.

  • That wind was CRAZY ASS SHIT today. I am honestly very surprised we didn't lose power at all. Also days like this, thermal underwear is a positively delicious thing.

  • My intestines hate me. I need to be nicer to them until New Years.

  • Watched the DW Christmas Carol this evening. non-spoilery teal deer: I enjoyed it. )

    Rest of season? CAN. NOT. FUCKING. WAIT. River Song and the whole I'll be in my bunk aside, Matt Smith may bring sexy cool back to the Stetson.

  • I got accepted into [livejournal.com profile] stepmoms today. I'd honestly forgotten I'd applied at the beginning of the month. Extra support and "no you're not crazy" always welcome. :)

  • Tonight's experiment in chicken seasoning ended up an unexpected success. Been trying to vary it up from just breading and baking it. So far so good. I'm surprised and honestly a little appalled by how much I rather like getting dinner together several times a week. Domestic? Me? who'da thunk it? Buh.

  • Need to stop 'crastinating about a few things tomorrow and get down to some brass tacks. Also my resolution list for next year is getting CRAZY. I need to prune it down so that my goals are actually achievable.

  • Habari Gani! Kugichagulia! No, I don't celebrate Kwanzaa, but the second day of it has meaning to me - not so much as self-determination (though goodness knows I could use some of that on a personal level), but as a reminder of an interesting time now way in my past. Also it's wicked fun to say.

    Yeah yeah yeah, I know. Like I even HAVE a Black card anymore.

  • Got the pictures off my phone (it's still good for that at least) and my camera for the last month, so I'm caught up reasonably with my 365 project. I haven't kept up with it nearly as well as I'd have liked, and I note that the chunks of time I missed pretty much directly correspond to my bad patches of anxiety and whatnot. However the project did get me into the habit of taking pictures of things that catch my fancy and got me out into the big wide world on occasion with the Hatemonger. Also I have a good handle on what needs work in terms of technique, the limitations of the Nikon starter lens, and under what conditions I can get better than decent pictures out of my phone camera, so I won't count it as a total failure even if I wasn't consistant with it.

    Also? I don't think I can complain about not having a constant human subject anymore. Kidzilla and Lovebug have filled out that role VERY nicely to the point where I definitely have to roll over their picasa album come January first. It's just crazy to me how much they've grown up in the year and change that comprises that album, I can't even.

    But I digress. I don't THINK I'm going to attempt project 365 next year, but I will be taking lots of pictures nonetheless. Just not strictly one per day. And I'm thinking a small goal to save for this year is some more camera equipment. Like holy balls of hell, can I buckle down and get a motherfucking tripod already? Sheesh. But I also would like a better zoom lens and some filters. Also want to actually take the DSLR class at Iris Photo one of the times it rolls around next year.

  • little bit of a heads up, I'm going to be doing a little temporary friends pruning. Not a cut, because I'm not defriending anyone or dropping people from filters or nothing, but my default reading list has gotten overwhelming and one of the things I want to do in 2011 is step back a bit from the interbutts. Since I'm not really announcing who I'm filtering off, I'll just say if it's important, shoot me a comment/message just to make sure I see it, and I'll still be reading everyone, just a few of you won't be getting read quite as often as, oh, every three minutes.


The highlight of my evening, though? Getting pinged by [livejournal.com profile] chirping_monkey because Kidzilla wanted to Skype and tell me all about her new dragons. XD What have I done to this poor child? LOL. I was having a bit of an iffy day emotionally, truth be told, but fifteen minutes squeeing over holiday eggs and pretending to pinch the camera and getting the Christmas breakdown with a very giggly six year old? Yeah. Dear fates she looks adorable without her bottom teeth, lol.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! ~~ (hers) Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

So um yeah. Shower and book time now.

This one just arrived on my doorstep this morning.



Yes yes, those are my boobs, stop staring at them and LOOKIT HOW AWESOME THIS SWEET SWEET MOTHERFUCKING T-SHIRT IS.

God I love TeeFury. I find it amusing that the two t-shirts i own from there are both Star Wars themed. (I got this one last year.)

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] subquixote!

Went to pick up my book pull at the Jones today...



I've got at least two more coming, since I accidentally picked up Naamah's Curse instead of Naamah's Kiss (book series fail), and Cryoburn is on its way. Also 2 of them I picked up for [livejournal.com profile] cell23, but who are we kidding, I'll be reading them before they get returned.

Uh yeah, so I'm not dead, just attending to work, headnoise, three million projects, four limerick oysters, Anjowrimo (5032 and probably more tonight), nine sympathetic diabetic old men on rollerblades with a propensity toward procrastination and sloth, and APPARENTLY READING UNTIL MY EYEBALLS FALL OUT.

...I'm never sleeping again.

Oh btw, The Hunger Games is shaping up to be exactly as good as everyone's been saying. Truefax.

See, I don't lie.

Oh yeah, I voted and stuff too. But more importantly, there's a bag of cookies on my desk and two pumpkin spice muffins in my belly. Civic duty is YUMMY.

You know, I know potatoes are supposed to have eyes, but this is downright creepy.



Well, that about blows my rule about never eating anything that's staring at me from the plate out of the water.

I don't tend to put up my 365 pics anymore... mostly because they're usually fairly mediocre to crappy cell phone pictures, and also considering that my emotional and anxiety state was over the summer, pictures were about the furthest thing from my mind. I only just now started back up with forcing myself to take SOMETHING every day again.

But you know what, every so often I get a pic that makes all the crappy ones worth it. And it usually involves a short stack.



We were just horsing around with the camera. Lovebug, I think, is gonna be a shutterbug himself - he loves it when I show him how the Hatemonger works, though right now he doesn't quite have the hang of it beyond "look in the little window and press the big silver button."

Anyway just wanted to share the cute.
