I'm not naive. Most of the people on my flist are there because they stumbled across a fanfic of mine, probably a Supernatural one. So, I expect to have suddenly a lot less friends when I say this:

I stopped watching season five, and did a long time ago.

The Paris Hilton might have been the last one I watched. They were just loosing me. So much focus on all this "Angels suck!" and "Find God!" stuff, and it just lost me. Not to mention that I heard Jo and Ellen bite it, and I wasn't interested in watching that. Why is it so hard for shows to support their freaking supporting characters these days? Especially in a show where the main relationship has been severely undercut.


Whatever. I keep thinking I'm going to look the episodes up online and see, but I just never do. Oh well, there's always season one. And fanfic. Actually, I like most fanfic depictions of the brother's relationship better anyway.

Now I have some original stuff to be writing about. Dead Boyfriend here I come.

So Apple unveiled the iPad today. The name is kind lackluster, but oh my god it looks so awesome. It's basically a giant iPod and all the apps and stuff work on it. I want one like whoa and it's pretty cheap. They start at $499.

I finally have internet working again. Hooray. After over a week with no connectivity, it feels good. also kind of daunting because I have loads to catch up on. Oh well.

So, just had an interesting conversation about the farce that is Christmas with [ profile] yahrlan on Msn. She had this to say: I was SO tempted to say 'Merry Triumph of the Eternal Sun" to people.

Which made me think of a few alternate ways I'm going to respond to people next year. Such as:



And my personal favorite:


To which she replied: those trees in your houses totally aren't fertility symbols or anything.

There's a reason we consider ourselves siblings. ^_^

(Skip this post to avoid gross details of my personal life)

My mom told me the beans and ham on the stove were okay. Turns out they weren't. I have been shitting non-stop since last night. It looks like it might have settled down for now, and not a moment too soon. My ass is killing me, and not even in a fun way. *sigh*

This is how much of a dork I am. When I go into Walmart or Ace or whatever kind of place that has those color pallet book things for painting I always grab a few that catch my eye because I use them for graphic design. In fact, that's what I used to make this new theme.

So, as I mentioned, I finished my first book yesterday. Unfortunately I cannot tell anyone in my family about it. Why's that do you ask? Simply because it has gay content in it and I'm not out to most of them. Ah, I can hear you say, but isn't the solution to that problem easy?

No. No it is not. I know the closet is self-defeating, I know that it's hurting more than just me, that there's this huge chunk of my life that I can't ever share with them. I know that, really. But the thing is? I'm not all that upset about it. Oh sure, I'm frustrated and mad at myself, but not enough to rock the boat. The status quo may be flawed, but it's working for me right now.

But of my problem is, I'm not a big risk taker. I'm not coming out to my parents until I'm absolutely sure I have a place to say if things go south, just in case. Not that I expect them to take it badly, but it's just too much of a biggie to worry about. Can't be homeless, after all. The closet is a lot more complicated than the gay party line says it is. It's not about shame, it's not about self-flagellation, and while there is some fear involved, it's not really about that, either. For me, it's about caution, and having all my ducks in a row.

Maybe they'd be cool with it, maybe they wouldn't care...but what if they did care? It's just too much to think about, to process. My fragile human mind can only handle so many what-ifs at a time. Better to let this one happen as it happens, I think. At least for now.

So I finished my first book today. Cat Valente said something like whenever she finishes a book she expects confetti to rain from the ceiling and is always disappointed when it doesn't happen.

My Facebook account and PayPal account just got hacked on the same day. I am like an inch from crying, seriously. Fuck my life. Though I don't know how it could be possible, I can't help thinking there's a connection somewhere.

If you are on Facebook and get a video link from me in the chat window DO NOT open it.

I have called PayPal and they've opened an investigation, should get back to me in a week. Only two false charges started, and one was stopped before it was completed. Thankfully, at the moment, I'm only out 9.99, and they're going to try and find who did it.

Say it with me folks: Fuck. My. Life.

Okay, so if you've read enough of these random ass babblings you know I want a white iPhone like I want to keep breathing. I shouldn't be so dramatic. I really want one with a burning, white-hot intensity of a million stars exploding. But that's beside the point.

My point is whether or not I can even have one where I live. I've fiddled around with the apple site, and when it gets to the point that I have to tell them I live in Bum Fuck, Wyoming it always comes back that AT&T doesn't offer wireless service in my area. However, the website coverage viewer map thing says they have "partner service," so if I just told the online form I actually live somewhere else, would the phone work when I got it?

I wish there was someone I could ask, but that's not the kind of thing I could really tell the apple help line, now is it?

Sometimes I just want to listen to my iPod, which makes it especially irksome that it has mysteriously gone missing. -_-

Just came across this situation that could use a little internet power. Let's signal boost this and get it the attention it deserves. Post it all around.

More info here

Please help pass this around. This could be any one of us in this situation.

You'd think the Wonder Woman message board, of all places, would attract posters who weren't inclined toward rudeness and gender stereotyping. Apparently very much not. Holy. Shit.

EDIT: I was trying to post my reply when the site went down. If I wasn't an atheist I'd say there was something fishy going on here. Well, I post the reply in a private post so I don't loose it when the site comes back up.

So in order to upgrade my mac OS X from Tiger to Snow Leopard I have to buy the Mac Box Set which comes with iLife and iWork as well as the OS 10.6 upgrade. I'm so pissed. Spend 169 dollars for two programs I don't need or want and will never use? Not hardly. Of course it's all moot since I don't have 169 dollars to spend anyway. There's a rumor going around online that buying the 29.99 upgrade for the Leopard will also work for Tiger, but one of the comments on the site I read that on said he tried that and it didn't work.

I've even tried to find a reliable torrent to download, that's how desperate I am, but I can't find one that looks worth it.

I need to go to Leopard at the very least to use this program to help me with website themes. *sigh* I don't suppose anyone out there has a disk they could lend me? I tried to use my friend's 10.6 start-up disk on mine but that didn't work, which was depressing. I guess I'll just have to keep on keeping on.

Anyone who has ever read anything of mine, now you can vote for me on Sure, it's for my original fic and not for fanfic, but that's okay. Send a little goodwill my way, anyways, please.

Gail Simone, current writer of the Wonder Woman comic book, just posted a haiku contest on the CBR forums. Whoever wins gets a signed TPB among various other "small goodies." I doubt I'll win, but here was my attempt:

Diana of Days
O Icon of Love and Peace
Lead us, Princess, Lead

I tried to follow as many traditional haiku rules as possible, though I'm not sure 'days' strictly counts as a seasonal marker. I wanted to say "Diana of Ages" but that, of course, doesn't fit the structure. And I didn't quite manage a question either, but I like it anyway.

Yeah, I'll be lucky to break 10,000 at this rate, forget about 50k.

8865 / 50000 words. 18% done!

Oh, well. I'll just keep on keeping on.

I covered a song, found some stock images, and made a video! Yes, that's me singing, which I'm sure you can tell by how shitty it sounds. But listen with headphones and the song itself sounds pretty cool, I think.

I know it's not perfect, some of the text is too small, for instance, but I'm way proud of it nonetheless.

Anyway, this is a promo for my original fiction project Dead Boyfriend. Let me know what you think, good, bad, or otherwise.

Well, I'm not sure what day it should be, since I didn't even write on Tuesday. But eh, here's yesterday's and today's word count combined, since it was a piddling anyway.

7304 / 50000 words. 15% done!

15 percent. Sigh.

Oh, well, think positive. I've still written over seven thousand words since the start of the month, which is better than what I do usually. Think positive, self, think positive.

Seriously, this is too awesome for words. I saw it via blynnk.

I LOVE how the lion on the left only goes over to the other one when the lioness starts rubbing on him.

"That bitch is rubbing on my man! Oh, HELL NO!"

So they hump, and then head-snuggle for a bit. D'AWWWW!
