*stabs ovaries*

And to make it more interesting, this month I'm having rather violent moodswings. :/ I just want to curl up in bed and not talk to anyone, which is strange because I was in a good mood yesterday.

Hello out there, denizens of LJ-land!

I know it's been awhile since my last really big update, so I've decided to catch everyone up on what's been going on with me IRL to keep me away from my beloved internets (besides all the damn outages and DDOS attacks LJ has been suffering). I've actually been pretty busy lately with...

QUE SERA DESIGNS

Yes, I've actually started up a small business featuring my artisan jewelry. You can also find me on Etsy, though the selling portion of my shop isn't up yet. ♥ I've actually been making jewelry as a hobby and to keep busy, but after making a lot for friends and family (and myself), I was encouraged to expand and sell to everyone who wants one-of-a-kind, affordable pieces of jewelry. I'm pretty enthused about this, since it's something creative that I enjoy doing, and I certainly don't mind making money doing it.

I've also been accepted to the Inland Empire Women's Business Center's 'It's Your Time' Program. It's a non-profit program that runs about six months long and is specifically aimed at helping and encouraging women in my area (the Inland Empire) to be successful small business owners. I'm really happy to have been accepted into the program, even if my 'final' of writing a complete business plan (with financials!) is a bit daunting. But hopefully I'll be successful. And all of y'all can cross your fingers for me, because the person who has the best business plan wins a prize package worth... I think it's over $3000. All I know is that last year, the winner got an iPad as part of the prize package. :3 I could use something like that definitely.

Actually, I've been pretty busy attending my classes and networking and, of course, selling my jewelry every month at Riverside's Art Walk. Though, now I'm hoping to expand to other local art events and farmer's markets and the like.

And now for the shameless pimping:

All of my jewelry is for sale.

I'm also available for custom orders (just ask Pet and Aoi and K-chan, since I've made pieces for them). Please feel free to contact me through FB, Etsy, e-mail, or -- of course -- here on LJ if you'd like to purchase something or get custom jewelry made for you. The holiday season is approaching! So you should totally buy presents for everyone you know from me. :3

I've been thinking of a way to kickstart some funding for my business as well (buying supplies is pricey when you work with semi-precious gemstones), so I'm considering offering up a little promotion. I'm working on cute angel pendant necklaces for the holidays. They're made of freshwater pearl, antique silver wings and halos, with high quality crystal bodies, each individually handmade and hung from sterling silver plated chain. If you're interested in a necklace (or a smaller pair for earrings), drop me a line. I'll custom make an angel (or two) for you in your choice of color for $20. I already have some made for sale, so I'll be posting a couple pictures later on FB and here on LJ for everyone to see.

♥ ♥ ♥

Aaaaaaaaaaand to return the favor, since she already pimped me out, [personal profile] gunxshyed is making CHUBBY POTTERS for sale. They're absolutely adorable felt ornaments that are individually handmade for you. She's made Snape and Harry so far, with a Draco as a custom chubby. I think she's willing to make anyone you want, so you should totally hit her up for cuteness.

Whew.

So was that pimping shameless enough, or should I have more blinking text?

I've been wondering when those lumps of flesh were going to start up for the month. Of course it would have to be when the weather starts hitting in the near 100s again. Fuck you too, Mother Nature.

It's Monday.

My neighbor's metal band has been "practicing" for over an hour already. Not only have they started early, they apparently have louder amps now, judging from the way I can feel the bass through the house.

=____=;;
windandwater: (Smile!)
It's been confirmed! Neku from The World Ends With You has shown up in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance.

DAMMIT SQUEENIX. WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME. I WAS ALREADY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO BUY A 3DS SO I COULD PLAY THIS GAME AND THEN YOU ADD EVEN MORE TEMPTING GOODNESS.

*throws money at Squeenix*

Just take all of it! And you better give us teasers for TWEWY 2! And KH3! IT'S TOKYO GAME SHOW. GIVE US THE GOOD CRACK.

The season finale for Deadliest Warrior is Vampires vs. Zombies!!!

Fuck yes I'm watching this.


EDIT...

Okay, a little annoyed over the discussion on whether the zombie virus can affect vampires. The answer is obviously no. :/ Vampires are undead. Their bodies are physically dead, so they wouldn't catch the zombie virus, or be able of passing it along. Also, as they are already dead (or undead), zombies would probably ignore vampires if they aren't attacked first. Zombies want to infect the living to make more zombies.

RE-EDIT...

Vampires can think. :/ I think they're forgetting that vampires can use shotguns. A vampire with a shot gun means the zombies would never win.

EDIT AGAIN...

I wonder if they're gonna bring up the "rotting" issue. Zombies are very effective, but as they are animated corpses, their bodies will eventually rot and decay.

*stabs ovaries*

... I suppose I should thank them for not starting up until after Art Walk and having fun last night at Sake 2 Me with Aoi, K-chan, Pet, Mikke, and Pet's two friends. I really enjoyed that sake bomb, too.

So, #2 on the list of Things You Don't Want to Happen When Wet, Naked, and Blind in the Shower:

So I finally finished Kingdom Hearts: Re:coded. I feel so accomplished.

^_______________________^

Though, note that I said finished and not completed, because there's a bajillion quests and trophies I still need to get for total completion and I'm not sure I want to finish 100%.

But I do want to get at least 20 trophies, so I can unlock the secret ending that leads up to Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance. Even if I know what happens in the secret ending anyway. >_>;; Hush. I want to unlock it.

BUT OMG. RE:CODED YOU AND I NEED TO HAVE SOME WORDS. CAPSLOCKY RAGE KIND OF WORDS.

here lies spoilers and capslocky rage )

*stabs ovaries*

LJ is eating notifs and I'm posting about my ovaries. All is right with the world.
windandwater: (Oro?)
IT'S A DDOS ATTACK.

Having an explanation for all this fuckery makes me feel somewhat better, but still cranky at LJ. I guess Russia is trying to pimpslap its political dissidents again.

You were right, Windsor!

I just really wish that when they did that, they'd leave the rest of LJ out of it. I mean, ONTD has its very own server because of the traffic it gets. You'd think something could be done. Then again, I'm no expert.
windandwater: (THIS is Sparta!)
If I knew that calling the police on my neighbors would make them stop having their weekend loud music blasting parties that last until 4AM, I would've called the police on them earlier.

:3

*will enjoy the quiet as I have been doing the past few weeks*
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
So LJ is down again. Fuck you, too, LJ. Though maybe now those errors I've been getting for the past month will finally go away.

=___=;;
windandwater: (Smile!)
Okay.

Fine.

I want to get and play Theatrhythm Final Fantasy when it comes out. A rhythm game? With FInal Fantasy music? And cute chibis? OF COURSE I WANT IT.

Looks like it's for the 3DS, but I'm crossing my fingers that it will work for the regular DS, too. If not, I'm going to have to wait until I can buy a 3DS... For Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, too.

>_>;;

STOP IT, SQUEENIX. STOP DOING THIS TO ME.

AND DAMMIT BARTZ. WHY DO YOU AND BOCO HAVE TO BE SO CUTE.

*weeps bitter bitter fangirl tears*
windandwater: (THIS is Sparta!)
There is something immensely satisfying about calling the police on your loud neighbors. Especially at 2:30 in the morning.

:3

I can't wait to do it again!
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
Is anyone else having major problems with LJ lately, or is it just me? It's all kinds of hell for me to load my inbox and various posts/comment pages/comms and it's really cramping my LJ browsing habits. =__=;; Whenever I check the LJ status page, it says that there's nothing wrong, but from my end it's like the DDoS is still going on.

... is this because I haven't switched to the new Firefox? :/
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
LOL that subject line sounds so dramatic.

*stabs ovaries*

Funny story: I started getting lower back pains earlier this week that usually signals the incoming red tide. I told my ovaries very firmly that they could not start up until after Thursday, since that was Art Walk and I had to be out and selling my stuff. They obeyed. Until I woke up on Friday.

Now I am curled in pain and this has been your girly TMI for the week.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!

And...

Happy Force of July!

Original:

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
And they're like, "It's better than yours"
Damn right, it's better than yours
I could teach you, but I'd have to charge.

Old English:

Mine milkshake bring all yon gentlefolk to mine yard
and lo they reply, "'Tis better than thine...
"Verily, 'tis better than thine!"
I could apprentice thee, but I wouldst levy a fee.

Literal:

My whipped iced dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/or employment,
and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours.
Absolutely, it far surpasses yours.
I could convey to you the proverbial recipe, but I would have to demand compensation.

Limerick:

Through stereophonic tubes
Comes a girl rapping mixes and grooves
and though you would think
Her topic was iced drink
It's really all about her boobs.

Haiku:

Boys, drawn to my yard
Their words in chorus singing
Your milkshake loses
windandwater: (THIS is Sparta!)
Heero actually sighed and looked over at the clock on the wall. "Look, Duo," he said, a sharp note of impatience in his voice. "This has been going on too long. I should have had you on your back and begging to come ten minutes ago. Maybe if this was a multipart, we could indulge in your psychotic fantasies. But this is a oneshot. So get over here, start crying, and let me get you naked!"

I think this is the best paragraph that I have ever written.

... I'm going to bed now. Really.
windandwater: (Oro?)
Okay. So. I've been watching MTV recently because I got caught up with this season of America's Best Dance Crew. Hush. I think the teams are really talented and I'm very torn between Iconic Boys and I Am Me at the moment, who will be going head-to-head in the finals.

ANYWAY.

Because I've been watching ABDC, I've been unfortunately treated to repetitive MTV commercials pimping out their new shows (when I don't change the channel to Food Network or something that is). And one of MTV's new shows is something titled, I shit you not, Teen Wolf.

I GIVE YOU THREE GUESS WHAT THIS SHOW IS ABOUT AND THE FIRST TWO DON'T COUNT.

So, yeah. Shitty new teen/young adult show meant to snag onto the whole Twatlight/vampire craze that's currently popular, except this time it's Twatlight with werewolves. Even from the commercials this show looks terrible, in ways that make someone who likes classic horror/vampire/werewolves (me!) want to rage.

Premise of the show is that teenage boy gets infected by werewolf and now has to deal with it. Enter pretty new classmate, who he is very attracted to, but OHNOES every time he's around her he gets all wolfy and doesn't want to inflict his curse on anyone else. How do I dislike this show? Let me count the ways.

1) The new girl's name is Bella Swan Allison Argent. Argent. ARGENT. THE WEREWOLF BOY IS ATTRACTED TO A GIRL NAMED ARGENT. *froths at the mouth*

... for those too lazy to wiki, argent means "silver". >_>;;

2) Werewolf boy gets 'wolfy' when his blood pressure rises, or he gets angry/excited/upset/emotional/whatever.

WHAT. HE IS A TEENAGE BOY. IS HE GOING TO GET WOLFY EVERY TIME HE POPS A BONER. THIS WOULD BE HILARIOUS IN A TRAGIC WAY.

3) It reeks of Twatlight. 'nuff said.

4) I don't know if there's going to be classic turns at the full moon wolfy stuff, but it does look like werewolves are pretty feral killing machines. That's one plus, but it doesn't forgive all the other horrible things.

5) I have no fifth point. Except that maybe people need to start being original and not riding the wave of current popularity. But if you're going to ride that wave, at least do something different.

AND COME UP WITH A BETTER FUCKING TITLE THAN 'TEEN WOLF.' THAT WAS AN 80s FILM.


....................... *goes away to chew on things*


EDIT...

IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

I just saw a new commercial and guess what? Guess what?! That silver girl? HER DAD IS TOTALLY A WEREWOLF HUNTER. I guess the name 'Argent' becomes suddenly relevant.

But still stupid.

So, here I am in the library and I have just noticed that a man has brought a computer into the library and is availing himself of the free wireless like I am.

Note: I did not say he brought his laptop. He has brought his computer.

Next to him are the empty boxes of what looks like a new Acer computer. The Acer computer that he is currently using. It has a tower and flatscreen monitor, keyboard and mouse, and he's checking his email on Yahoo. I know this because his monitor is nice and bright and large.

... I have to say that seeing someone bring in their whole computer to the library is definitely something I haven't seen before.

IN SOVIET RUSSIA, .RU HACKS YOU.

I'm getting tired of the constant DDoS attacks. Jeeze, Russia, if you want to attack your political opponents, can't you do it in a way that doesn't effect the rest of us? You've got all of LJ pissed at you now, and we know you are the one behind it.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
It's 2 PM on Monday afternoon.

Guess what my neighbor is doing? If you guessed "practicing his horrible music with his band" you get a cookie!

... I'm starting to vaguely understand the lyrics now. That, or his amps are just louder today than usual.

>_>;;

Oh. And I started my period today. Double yay.
windandwater: (Oro?)
I'm finally getting LJ notif emails! From over a week ago. >_>;; Nice job, LJ! *thumbs up!*

In additional, and more personal fail, my mother doesn't know how old I am. And, after the initial shock wore off, I found that I was, surprisingly, not surprised. Looks like things aren't shaping up for a good birthday this year. Maybe I should just dig a hole to hide in.

First, HAPPY PI DAY! Geeky holidays are some of the best holidays. ^^ So everyone get your 3.14 on!

Second, I was reminded last week by [personal profile] sukino that my birthday is fast approaching. A little under a month now. =___=;; I'm not quite sure how I feel about this. It's just another year older, but it doesn't really change anything about me except a number. Maybe I'm just being depressed because of the ongoing cold weather (woo S.A.D.) but I can't seem to muster up enough enthusiasm about my birthday like I usually do. Maybe that will change when it hits April, but I'm not sure.

Frankly, it'll just be the day I get older, I only get presents from my friends (my parents stopped giving me presents for my birthday and holidays a long time ago and my relatives barely remember when my birthday is) which are lovely, and I get free things from the places I have rewards cards for (free Godiva and Sephora stuff is not to be sneezed at). Maybe I'll just have a quiet birthday this year. I've had various conversations from friends about how I'm usually the one who does something big or goes somewhere on my birthday, while everyone else keeps things low-key. But right now I just feel "blah" about everything. Maybe I should be a bear and just hibernate until the warm weather comes.

Anyway, because I might as well try to cheer myself up by being ruthlessly materialistic, here is my birthday (and all-around holiday or whatever) wishlist.

Things I Want:

-- a job (probably not anything anyone can give me)
-- to win the lottery (ditto above)
-- a Vespa (third time's a charm)
-- handmade things, which includes fics and fanart
-- stuff from my Etsy Favorites (PROTIP: I've actually taken up jewelry-making as a bit of a hobby. I think it's fun, keeps me busy, and is very non-stressful. Plus, I like making pretty things. So a lot of the stuff on my Etsy faves are either supplies or jewelry kits that I'd like to make.)
-- stuff from my Amazon wishlist (this is where the PSP greedy materialism comes in)
-- nothing terrible to happen
-- Cadbury Creme Eggs (my bday is two weeks before Easter woo)
-- IDK some other things that I can't think of at the moment

There. I think I'm done wallowing in my own emo for the moment. Time to go do something useful. Or eat ice cream. Whatever.

OMG

He's 'singing' again. And yes, it's the same song being repeated.

*smashes head against desk*
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
So the neighbor boy-teen-person-thing has a garage band. They have been very loud lately. They played very loud last night from about 8pm until midnight. They are playing loud again right now, practicing, I think. They've been at it for at least two hours.

They are bad. As in, not very good.

And they keep playing the same loud song with screechy-yelling-omg-I'm-hardcore-so-I-must-scream-incoherently "lyrics". I've counted. They're at the fifth repetition. I thought they were done, because they were playing other stuff (still badly), but then they started again.

I'm about ready to throw a brick at them.

=____=;;


EDIT...

AND NOW IT'S NUMBER SIX.
windandwater: (Oro?)
Dropped by the mall today on the way home to pick up a freebie bag from Godiva (rewards club perk~) and managed to snag a free Red Velvet Cake truffle, and the free panty from Victoria's Secret (another rewards club perk, I love free things). While I was window shopping, I walked by Macy's and happened to notice some very... colorful standees in front of the makeup counter by the entrance, advertising something or another. They were drawn in "life-size" anime-ish style. And I had to do a double take, because first thing I thought when I saw the standees was:

Why are they using Bridget to advertise perfume? I mean, I know Bridget is cute, but also a trap. Possibly not the best way to advertise a legitimate product not related to the Guilty Gear games.

I was a bit boggled, but kept walking. However, at the food court, I was accosted by more of the standees and a lady passing out flyers. I then found out that, no, they're not representations of Bridget, but of Paris Hilton, to advertise her new fragrance line. I guess she's trying to the Gwen Stefani Harajuku thing except five years late.

Somehow, I'd be more impressed if it was actually Bridget.

This thread from [community profile] ontd_political has the absolute most hilarious comments ever. How can you not like a thread with gems like this:

Most people outside of the U.S. don't realize this, but the delegates of the Constitutional Convention were overwhelmingly composed of two prominent groups within early American society: zombies and vampires.

Ben Franklin, of course, was a werewolf.


And this:

I seriously think that everyone in the Tea Party thinks the Founding Fathers were like the Justice League or something, battling evil, tyranny and injustice everywhere they found it. The Founding Fathers were NOT a superhero team, completely infallible and always right. Although the thought of George Washington as Superman, Thomas Jefferson as Batman and Ben Franklin as the Flash is an amusing thought.

And, of course, this beautiful summation of history wherein it is explained how the Founding Fathers abolished slavery:

john adams and john hancock. see, they built a time mechine, and used to to lanch them selfs forwards in time and join forces with ab lincon after there time mechine exploded upon reentry. together, the trio hacked, slashed, shot and killed there way across the south, till they finaly had an epic duel with the forces of slavery in the captial of the confedates. john adams, an old man, was mortaly wounded, and lay dieing. then, albert enstine steped in. claiming that history must be repaired, he took adams and hancock, and transported them back to there own time, lieing adams upon his death bed.

then, with his work complate, slavery abolished, and the time line restored, enstine nodded with statsfaction, and went to pick up stephen hawking, for there own trip to the future...



Politics, comics, and time traveling zombie historical figures. Of course I love this stuff.
