tarotgal: (Accident Prone)
I literally spent all Saturday afternoon driving around, doing chores. I worked a little this weekend on an upcoming project. But, mostly, I went through my journals, fixing images. The good news is that I found some LEGO series 17 minifigs and spent a few hours going through boxes to get a complete set. I misfelt one through the package, but I found some at Walmart today and got the one I was missing. The bad news is that, while I was making dinner last night, just as the thing in the oven was about ready to come out, I opened up my fridge and the aloe plant I keep on top of the fridge FELL ON MY HEAD. The pot didn't break, but dirt went everywhere and part of the poor plant broke off. I had dirt in my hair and down my shirt and then the oven timer went off AND the microwave finished as well. So my dinner got cold while I cleaned one-handed, a cold pack on my head where the pot had hit it. I'm so graceful.

On Friday, I saved one of the images from Photoshop onto my hard drive. I still have about 20 folders still to download, and some of the folders aren't downloadable, so I had to save hundreds of images one at a time. I sorted through images and uploaded them to my website. Then I went through all 800+ entries of my 101 Things LiveJournal and fixed every single entry. When I tried to copy those into Dreamwidth, I learned that the import only grabs new entries and new comments, not edited entries. And there is no way to delete all entries in a Dreamwidth journal, for security reasons, so I had to go through and delete all 800+ entries one at a time then do another import of content. That took me all weekend. I did also fix all photos in my Writing blog, my Music blog, and the first 3 years of posts in my Book Blog (which has over 1,000 entries and many more years to go). I also finally deleted my Writing Blog, Music Blog, Dream Blog, and LEGO Blog off LiveJournal. I still have another, like, 10 blogs to go.

I'm rewatching one of my favorite shows right now--Forever Knight. I never even took seasons 2 and 3 out of their plasticwrap! I have been AMAZED at some of the extremely young guest stars I now recognize who were strangers to me then. First was Thea Gill (Lindsay from Queer as Folk. She isn't in the show for long, but I would recognize that voice anywhere!). Then David Hewlett, who played a crazy bad guy and did a smashing job being creepy! And just last night I watched an episode that had Amanda Tapping (playing a doctor/scientist)! I'm nearly up to my favorite episode--the Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass episode that's crazy. Can't WAIT to listen to the DVD commentary for that one. I've been waiting, what, 24 years for that commentary? This is so exciting!
tarotgal: (Pissed Off)
Found out tonight that now Photobucket isn't allowing 3rd party sites to display their images. So 75% of my images in all my blogs are coming up as broken links. Fantastic! Good thing these are mirrored on two or three blogs now! That's only 5,000 x 2 posts I need to sift through and edit! Hardly anything! *cries*

And I'm supposed to start Camp NaNoWriMo tomorrow too. Goodie!

Also, I'm using my pissed off icon on LJ because I was talking with [personal profile] melydia tonight about how much I love Janette, and it seemed appropriate as well. Damn you, Photobucket! You had ONE JOB!
tarotgal: (H/C- Inuyasha)
It's been YEARS since I tried my hand at H/C Bingo, but the head of my new Camp NaNoWriMo cabin said sign ups were open, so I gave it a go. I got some good stuff. I'm a little sad that some of my favorites aren't in the same row/column, so I might have to try for a blackout or maybe make a couple different bingos.

It also occurs to me that I don't think I've actually written sex pollen. Have I? I've read so much of it... I can't remember if I've ever written it myself! LOL

So... I've been feeling not so inspired in the fic-writing lately. I've got a Spander story I REALLY want to work on... but every time I want to write it, I'm too busy and every time I'm free, I get stuck.

So I think I'd like to do some short things again. Because those drabbles I did last year were fun. But I need words. Just single words, not phrases or sentences. Anyone have a word suggestion or two for me? Would love for them to be kinky and/or h/c or sf-related please! I reserve the right to skip any I can't think of a fill for ;-) And feel free to repeat any off the list I've already done. If it's a good word, I want it!

Rocky Week

tarotgal: (Rainbow Body)
I'm having a bit of a rocky week. I don't want to say it's because I now work from home 4.5 out of 5 days a week but... I think it's doing bad things to my mood. Like, sometimes I don't think so and I think it's the BEST and then I remember that year I spent in depression on my couch, I thought the same damn thing. So... I dunno how functional/sane I am at the moment.

BUT... it's Pride this weekend... and I can't go to the Parade because I have to host a game day event instead. So it'll still be fun. But I'm planning on going on Sunday to the Pride Festival and possibly hanging out with the other Aces.

Speaking of Aces, I finished Jughead Vol 2 this week. IT WAS AMAZING. I love Asexual!Jughead sooooooooooooo much! Like, I would hug him, but I know he's not into that.
Also, Riverdale's Jughead looks pretty freakin cute with a red nose. (No photoshopping done here, just screencaps from the show.) Just sayin:

I would also like to mention that my new office is going to be in RIVERDALE. So... that's kind of awesome. Actual conversation:
Coworker: Actually, that's not the town. This office building is actually in Riverdale.
Me: What?!
Coworker: Riverdale
Me: Like the show?
Coworker: What show?
Me: Riverdale!!
It was almost a "Who's on First" moment.

Anyway, I nearly wet myself laughing about this tonight and had to share. How did no one tell me about the Babadook?

I've been watching lots of Doctor Who (I loved the Fifth Doctor, wasn't so keen on the Sixth, but am LOVING the Seventh!). I've been prepping for Harry Potter events I'm leading (I've got Game Day on Saturday, an Order of the Phoenix discussion next week, and a Murder Mystery Dinner I'm making into a BIG event in August). I've got AwesomeCon next week as well. And I'm thinking of going to another slash con in July because it's local and it's so damn nice being around my people in person and being able to talk freely about those kinds of things.

I think part of my weird mood is that I'm not writing much. I started a Spander fic after CONfab, but I'm not sure I like what I'm doing with it. The beginning was great but now... eh... I dunno. I could use some prompts to get my creative juices flowing again maybe? I dunno. So tired. I need something. Just don't know what.

Oh, also, I get a free bagel a day at Panera all June! So... that should be making me happy! I dunno.
tarotgal: (Breakfast Club- Group)
Just barely hanging on!

Finished Gaithersburg Book Festival last week. Brought 757 books and gave them and another 800 or so away for free at the festival. Took me a lot of time to get all those sorted and registered and released and packed up.

Spent over 2 weeks at work packing up my office and dealing with the server room and storage room and all my coworkers' systems. The moving truck came yesterday and took everything away and I started working from home. My parents helped me transport and set up a little workstation in my basement so that's my dedicated work space that I can keep separate from the computer desk here where I write and watch Netflix and play computer games and craft (and register an absurd amount of books). I like having that dedicated space at home; my cats seem to like it as well as they keep stealing my desk chair every time I get up.

Saw the eye doctor yesterday. Found out afterward my insurance doesn't cover that. Damn it.

Got my car's oil and air filter changed today. Cost more than I would have liked, but it had to get done.

Driving up to Pittsburgh tomorrow to go to Confabulation! It'll be my first con of this kind alone and I'm nervous about that. I'm such an introvert. [personal profile] ratherastory, if you're going, please come find me so we can squee about h/c things! I'm excited about the trip, though. It's AMAZING to be around my people in an uncensored environment. There's nothing like it. Problem is, I haven't really started packing yet. GAH!!! But it's definitely my reward for working so damn hard this month. I can't wait to talk Hamilton and OT3s and all other sorts of fandomy goodness with people! I also get to pick up this pillow I commissioned, which I am insanely excited about! https://www.instagram.com/p/BUYROuAAC1m/ And, hey, if the worst that happens is I end up hiding in my room in the evenings snuggling pillows and writing fanfic, that's still a wonderful vacation and time well spent! So I'm not going to push myself. I'm just going to enjoy the not working-ness of it all! :-)
tarotgal: (Hufflepuff)
Usually this is where I differ in the definition of a Hufflepuff, but today I am 2 for 2!

Someone turned my Fitbit into the staff at my Sat morning library! WHOOHOO! I'm going to order a new band immediately so this will be less likely to happen again! WHEW!

Also, I bought Ozma & Charlie a new cat bed and reorganized so there are two window seats in my craft room. And while I was doing that, I found Ozma's treat toy that I lost months ago. Both my mother and I tore the room apart looking for it, unable to find it, and there it was, like magic!

Now if I can only find my lost DVD remote, then I'll think today is especially magical and I'll have to go... I don't know... play the lottery or something. LOL


I spent the morning organizing a Harry Potter murder mystery party I'm putting on in August. I'm going to be buying some props and making others as well as decorations. I'm very excited about it! I've already bought some "floating" candles as well as the place settings. I've got 13 confirmed attendees already and 2 spots remaining.

And watching Sense8. I'm on the second-to-last episode. I can't wait to find out what happens but I don't want it to be over so soon!

Grrrr!

May. 6th, 2017 06:26 pm
tarotgal: (Grrr Argh!)
Was having such a good day. Library volunteering, hit two comic book stores for Free Comic Book Day (and bought a Torchwood graphic novel, Poe graphic novel, Winnie-the-Pooh Pop figure, Ewok button, and a mug for my dad for Father's Day), went to grocery store, and I still had time to eat a quick lunch before heading to another library bag sale where I bought & filled 4 bags with books to give away for free in a few weeks, then came home and watched more Sense8 and cleaned.

I was wondering why my Fitbit wasn't reaching its goal, after all that, and when I looked IT WASN'T THERE! GAH!

If it fell off outside, it's ruined because it's been pouring rain all day. If it fell off in the library, there MIGHT be a chance it's still somewhere. But it hasn't been near me since 8:30 or so... which leads me to believe it fell out when I got out of the car this morning in the library parking lot. I'll call the library or go by sometime tomorrow to check. But I'm not hopeful. UGH. This is why I can't have nice things. I KNEW I should have ordered a replacement band. My original band broke and I've been using other bands cowboyguy gave me with it which were WAY too big/loose. All it would have taken was a tug as I put on or took off my jacket for it to come off. Damn. So I'll have to buy a new one. This is so frustrating! Would I have spent $50 at comic book stores today if I knew I'd have to replace my fitbit? No, I wouldn't have. Grrrrr!

Part of me wants to drive over now and look at the parking lot. But the part of me that has already put on sweatpants for the night also knows that even if it's in the parking lot, it will have been pounded with water all day and wouldn't work anyway. So it's not worth it.

The other possibility is that my phone died so it couldn't sync and I could have lost it ANYWHERE today. There's no way I'm physically going to go retracing all those steps. If I can't find it at the library, I'll call the stores and see. Then I'll just have to buy a new one. Damn it!
tarotgal: (Rainbow Body)
I'm only on episode 5, but this new season of Sense8 is rocking my world so hard right now. I definitely needed this. When Lito says to Hernando and Daniela "Family, try to understand what's happening here" I just about lost it. It was a sad moment, yes, but calling them "Family" as a unit like that? OMG yes. I love them so much! OT3 forever.

Though, I guess, it's more like an OT11 if you add in everyone including Amanita, isn't it? Squee :-)

All I can hope is that my coworker is watching it this weekend so I can discuss it all with him... because NO ONE else in my life is watching the show for some reason. When we heard the new season was available today, he and I were both SO excited! So far, it's not disappointing.

And Then the Sky Opened Up )
tarotgal: (BookCrossing)
I woke up this morning thinking my day was going to go like this:
1. Get to work early
2. Work my ass off doing 8 hours of work in 4 hours
3. Take the afternoon off to clean my house (which I do the first week of May every year)
4. Feed cats
5. Head to Hot Topic to pick up my shipments (yes, plural)
6. Go to Barnes & Noble for a discussion with my Harry Potter group about wizarding goverments, magical law enforcement, and shady judicial systems

And while I technically did most of the items in the above list, my day unfolded a lot differently from what I was expecting. Within fifteen minutes of being awake, I was on a multi-person email chain with a friend asking if any of us had heard from a mutual BookCrossing friend of ours. I hadn't. About 3 minutes into my breakfast it was discovered that our friend had died in February. We found her obituary online. I was in shock. I don't even remember eating the rest of breakfast. I do remember Ozma kitty jumping into my lap while I was watching the photo slideshow tribute. But mostly I was just crying and trying to process this sudden loss.

By the time I was settled at work, a member of the group discovered a news article explaining our friend had been hit by a car while crossing the street and had died. She was 58. So I fell apart at work several times. Then I got home and slipped into self-care mode instead of spring cleaning mode. I went through all my photos and put up short little tribute pages for her and for another one of our group members who passed away a few years ago. I have a very good track record of feeling better during the grieving process by looking at happy photographs. It wasn't until I did that for Cassie a few weeks ago that the weight I've been carried around lifted.

I still feel shocked and devastated about the loss, but the photos absolutely helped me remember the good times. She was my roommate when we went to Dublin, and therefore also my morning breakfast buddy and my outside-the-hotel adventure buddy and my "which bus do we even take to get from the airport to the hotel?" buddy. We had a lot of wonderful moments together during that trip. She's been a fixture in our local BookCrossing group for as long as I can remember. And one thing I love about my local BookCrossing group is how we rarely talk about books when we're together--we talk about ourselves and each other. Every month I get to see these friends again in person and get caught up on their lives and their thoughts. I got to learn about her many cats and her house (which sounded like quirky old construction, though I never saw it in person) and the trips she took and the Halloween decorations (I will never forget the image she put in my mind of skeletons in her front yard wearing dollar store fairy wings--anyone who thinks up a yard full of fairy skeletons is my kind of weird!).

The nature of the group, outside of a few members who have become some of my best friends and one who I see semi-regularly at my Harry Potter meetups too, is that we just don't share our lives in-between meetups. And sometimes people can't make it to meetings, so time might pass before you see the person again and find out how they're doing. We talk in our online group, but mostly only about book festivals or future meetups or the occasional article or local event. So they're sort of my online friends and sort of my real life friends. But, to me, they're just my friends. And I love them. So it hurts when one passes. And it hurts even more to find out 3 months after one passes. I feel like I should have known somehow. I did think it was strange not to hear from her in April, but I thought maybe she was just away on a trip and not able to go to the book festival. So I feel like I was robbed of something... I don't know what. I don't think it's closure. It wasn't time. Certainly I"m robbed of her--I'm going to miss her a lot. But I guess I feel like I missed out on being able to grieve with her friends and family and tell them how glad I was she was a part of our group and a part of my life. That's partly why I made the tribute page today; I needed to get my thoughts out and needed to process. And I can leave a message on the funeral home page. But it's not the same as being there in person for a service to really celebrate someone who touched you, who you respected and cared about. It's not the same as getting to see in person all the other people who loved your friend.

I don't blame her family; they didn't know us and didn't know how to contact us. The last thing you want to think about when something like that happens is how to contact people you've never met in order to give them the terrible news of the loss. But this is going to happen more and more now that so many people have friends online. I have a document in my fire safe that explains what sites/blogs to post messages on and which people in my different groups to contact upon my death (several people reading this now have already been notified that they're point people for this; I sincerely hope you never need to act upon it).

The toughest part about this loss is that even though I know I'm not alone today--that all of my other BookCrossing friends are sharing in this strangely delayed state of grief--I'm not there in person with them. I can't hug any of them and console any of them. We're all going through this together but entirely separately geographically. But we're talking online about things we can do. We're going to do a group donation to a cause she cared about--a local feline foundation. And we're going to have a special section of books at the book festival in a few weeks in her honor. And we might do a Halloween book release challenge in her honor. For me, it's those traditions that help me cope and remember best. It's an excuse to remember my friends--and I do so every time I see a book that reminds me of them. I have specially marked boxes of books in my basement for each of my BookCrossing friends I've lost and I put themed books in each throughout the year. If I get a a book about Pooh bear or soccer or horses or hugs, I put it in the box for Becky's annual memorial release. If I get a book about cats or the Civil War or by Pat Conroy, I put it in MaryZee's box to take up to Maryland the first weekend of November. If I see a book with a raven or penguin or motorcycle or historical markers, I put it in the box for TCM. And I guess now I'll be starting a new box with crazy science fiction/fantasy and cat books for my dearly missed friend FURBALL.

I wonder what kind of books they'd release in my memory? Probably Eeyore, Harry Potter, and gay romances. That's a pretty hilarious mix. But that's me.

Problem #157: Upon coming across boxed sets of television shows at a used book sale, you must figure out what search terms to use to Google what season of the show had that episode you can't remember the title of where that character had a massive sneezing fit.

Problem #158: You discover that the season that had that episode is not one of the ones being sold.

Problem #245: While doing your grocery shopping, the regular music piped through the store is interrupted by a commercial that discusses allergies, and there are sniffles and a magnificent sneeze as part of the commercial. And it's lovely, don't get me wrong, but you're also in public and just trying to shop and now maybe you're unexpectedly turned on.

Problem #687: Do you wrap the adorable children's book with sneezy raccoons in it as a present for your fellow sneeze fetish friend or just give it to her awkwardly in addition to her "normal" birthday presents?

Time for another edition of things in my world!

Friday: Made the (inevitable) decision to stay with my current job. The raise I'm getting isn't much, but it will cover the added expense of commuting and give me a tiny bit extra each month. And we're going to be allowed to telework from home three days a week, which means only having to drive to another state for work twice a week. I think I can handle that (good thing I ADORE audiobooks). It'll mean I get to be around my kitties more, too, so that's a bonus.

Yesterday: Went on a geocaching trip to the Eastern MD shore with a LEGO friend. Was fun, but I still don't think it's the hobby for me. I prefer my historical markers because (for the most part) people WANT you to see the markers. Geocaches are hidden and complicated on purpose. I don't need that. But I did manage to spot some markers along the way and we ended the day with a few monuments/memorials (one of which I think is going to yeild me about 25 snarfs because of a marker series within the memorial--score!). On the whole, it was a lot of fun. I wasn't prepared for the fact that we did not stop for lunch or dinner. I left the house at 8am and got home at 9am HUNGRY. I did pack some snacks, but it's not the same as a proper meal. Also, anyone who knows me IRL knows I am obsessed with putting on sunblock. I didn't do so yesterday, because I just had too many moving pieces and was trying to figure out his GPS device. So now I have a sunburn on my face that is embarrassing. People say it's not that noticeable; just looks like I'm blushing. But I feel shame. Also, I don't want skin cancer. Bad tg. Also, at one point in the car, I looked down and saw what I thought was a little spider running across my hand. It was not a spider. It was a tick. I tried to smash it but only succeeded in dropping it on the floor of the car. After that, I was pretty sure it had crawled back onto me and was biting me and giving me Lime disease or something. So that was my freaking out mental state for the last 3 hours of the trip. At one point, I reached up to move my hair and my finger brushed something on my neck and I pulled it away and I am 90% sure it was the tick again, but he didn't bite me that time either. When I came home I did the most thorough tick check ever and took a super long shower. Then I checked all over a second time, just in case. I do not think a hobby that puts me in danger of skin cancer and lime disease is for me, honestly. Also, I had to climb out onto a spit (?) across about 50 feet of nothing but unstable, shifting rocks. Yeah. This is not my hobby. Which kind of sucks as I'm going geocaching again this upcoming Sunday. But we're going to a military fort, so there will be a lot of snarfing too. Yay!

Today: Went to the gynecologist; apparently the bump I have is not life-threatening. Another Yay! Finally finishing up my taxes tonight as well.

I really need to adult better. I'm doing better than I have been in a while, but I'm not where I'd like to be yet.

Speaking of not being where I want to be yet, I still haven't seen season 2 of the Get Down! I started watching the first episode and kept getting pulled away. ARGH! I love those characters. Need more now!

My week looks like this: finish taxes, work, processing photos from Sunday's trip, writing SPN fic about Dean & Sam caught in the rain at a bus stop, watch the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs, try to read as much of the second Game of Thrones book as possible because I've got a book discussion about it next week, register ALL THE BOOKS for an upcoming book festival (I've got 2 boxes and 4 bags packed with books still to get through).

Guess who bought herself an Ed Sherran ticket today? This girl. I was so on the fence about it, but I've adored his songs since 2011, and it's been amazing watching him getting better and better. It was just time I go see him in person finally.

My boss calls him "weird-looking" LOL But I think he's completely adorable. He's totally my type, if I had a type. I'm beginning to realize that my type = huggable. Yeah. Why did it take me so long to realize I was asexual again? Hahaha But the fact that he has an entire room of teddy bears and he buys LEGO sets... totally my kind of guy.

Plus, I still cannot get through Castle on the Hill without crying. And it's been months now.

So it was more money than I should have spent, but I bought the ticket through the discount site I've got access to because I'm a state employee, so the ticket actually was discounted. And it's waaaaaaaaaay up in the nosebleed seats. Which is fine by me, as long as I can hear him. And it's at the same venue the Caps play at, so I know my way around there well.

I can't wait!! Except that I must wait, because it's September 20. I'm excited, though. #NoRegrets
