IW Lucky Pack: a report nobody cares about

I suppose I should really bust out the camera for this, later. The Innocent World LP was a pretty good haul, but I'm waiting for everything to grow on me (perhaps I'm desensitized after all this time). Extra-lucky that it was all black and off-white, so it can fit into my wardrobe nicely: dress, pants, two shirts, bolero, hoodie, and sock-toppers. I was going to describe them, but...seriously, I'm gonna go take a picture instead of typing bunch of gibberish.

The jumper is gorgeous, but the pants are probably the highlight. I guess you'd call them "high-waisted breeches", and I was really surprised they fit, because my last IW pants did not. They're the only item that doesn't look totally incongruous with my buzz-cut. (Time to dig out the wigs.)

Lolita, Ten Years Later

I realized today that it's been over a decade since I've been following the Lolita community. I can't decide if it's painful or hilarious, but dem bitches been arguing about the same things, over and over, for that entire period.

    Arguments in Lolita that are Old As Fuck:
  • boo hoo, brands don't make my size

  • lolita is only for japanese people because it's based in japan

  • bawww sweet lolita isn't real lolita

  • resale markup omg ripoff

...and so on. Keep up the rurz, radies.

Today's Cooking

Cooked bacon ends today, into rendered fat and crunchy bits, both for later use.

Yesterday, I baked mac+cheese with tuna and broccoli, and made burritos for the freezer.

Later I might make Brotchán Roy: leek and oat soup. But I have to go buy more containers first.

(Guess I'll be using LJ to keep track of this stuff.)

I might have to revive this thing.

I keep wanting to start blogging again, but I never do. Sigh.

In the news, I've been commissioned to design a layout for a queer porn production company. So that's fun. Might get hired full time. I love queers.

The other bit of excitement is that I've re-pierced my second earlobe hole, which had closed. Yeah, did it myself, but properly with sterilization and piercing needles and all that. Been meaning to do it for like, years now. Used a 14 gauge instead of regular 16 or 18, partly to keep it from closing again, but also because the jewelry selection is better. I've got some 16g needles coming in the mail so I can re-do the third holes on each side. (There's only one "second" hole because I have a mole on the other ear.)

And then I'm gonna get some tapers and stretch the primary lobe holes up to a 12g. I think that will look nice, 12-14-16, in a row. And I'll be able to wear the cool bone swirlies and stuff.

(And then I'll move on to the face. Provided whatever job I have allows. I miss my labret.)

Other things are probably happening too.

Thinking of trying Script Frenzy in April. Anyone else?

Dr. Doofensmirtz, What's Your Sign?

So recently I've developed this weird obsession with Phineas and Ferb, and while I should have known better, I was surprised to discover Doofenshmirtz has a huge ridiculous fangirl following. I can't decide if this increases or lowers my faith in humanity. Hmm.

Anyway, earlier today I was watching this episode, in which it is Doofenshmirtz's birthday. This inspired me to ask the (completely pointless) question: what's his star sign?

Check out my fancy-pantsy "logic", also known as "putting way too much thought into it":

- The show takes place during the U.S. Summer vacation time, which is about 6 and 12 weeks long depending on where you are, sometime between May and September. (By the way, that means it's 84 days long, not the 104 days the opening song mentions, but I digress.) Anyway, that means he's got a Summer birthday.

- The episode is "Raging Bully", one of the earliest ones, aired back in 2008, introduced some of what became regular characters. Since there is soooort of vague chronology in the series (more so than more cartoons anyway) this leads me to believe it must be early in the summer, May or June.

- Then it's just a matter of looking at the descriptions of May/June signs, which are Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer. And what do I find here...?

Traditional Gemini traits:
- Adaptable and versatile
- Communicative and witty
- Intellectual and eloquent
- Youthful and lively
- Nervous and tense
- Superficial and inconsistent
- Cunning and inquisitive

Oh, well then. That was easy, wasn't it?

You can read the rest over here or on any other Google search for Gemini, I'm sure, but here are some of the key (amusing) points:

  • "They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project apparently purposelessly"

  • "Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make to be moral (in the widest sense of the word)."

  • "Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges. But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last."

  • "They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind."

  • "Even at their worst they are never dull - there is usually playfulness below the surface, and they can be brilliant conversationalists - but they can also be quarrelsome, prattlers, boasters, liars and cheats."

  • "they take danger no more seriously than anything else"

  • "They like intrigue, the excitement of the chase, but once they have caught the prey, they lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue."

Lol at that last one, since it was technically referring to Relationships...the more rabid fangirls should appreciate it.

So yeah. Heinz Doofenshmirtz is a Gemini. Says I.

(EDIT: Stupid picture, I don't know left from right.)

Lolita Sale

Selling some Lolita dresses soon. No sense in just putting them to storage. Be forewarned.

Controversial Question Time

Why isn't CF Hardcore considered a hate group?

I am totally supportive of the Childfree movement and concepts. Unrelated, I've pretty much decided never to have children. But the seething anger which is cf_h blows my mind.

SUDDENLY: egl was mature. And it was about lolita furries, of all things.

Am I pleased or just mindfucked?

Q for Saiyuki peeps

What the dilly is up with Sanzo's chest-piece? It's not exactly a rakusu. Is is supposed to be like armor? (But then why are they little pieces all dangly?)

Also, what's it made of? I'd always assumed the little dangly pieces were wood, but apparently other people think they're metal?

Tue, Nov. 16th, 2010, 12:06 pm

Lol, I'm blocked from searching for "lolita" at work.

Mon, Nov. 1st, 2010, 03:04 pm

For NaNoWriMo this year, I'm going to write my Dissertation.

(Being cynical; seasonal apathy. I always try to participate and forget about it.)

Sat, Oct. 2nd, 2010, 03:50 pm

I ordered my BJD. It's the Ange Ai Raffy from CustomHouse. I wasn't sure if I'd want to wait so long for my "first", but it was love at first sight. (CH has a 3-6 month wait. Ugh.) In the meantime I'm going to hand-stich a tiny quilt for her, I think. Also, I ended up choosing to get her with the faceup, but I'll probably modify it a lot.

Holy Crap Lolitas

Yesterday I ate lunch in the park, just like every day. There are people where I normally sit, so I keep walking. Standing on the bridge, I can see these people, three girls in short fluffy dresses...

...and then they start parapara dancing.

Holy shit. I am no longer the only Lolita in town, and there's not just one, there's THREE!!! EEEE!

So I went over and introduced myself. Hopefully I've made new peeps.

Thu, Jun. 24th, 2010, 01:36 pm

Finding out that relatives died through Facebook is super-lame. Thank you, Web 2.0, for reminding me why you're stupid.

In unrelated news: I would seriously like to do something with my time other than work and go to the doctor.

The Source of All Nothing that Ever Wasn't

(Remember these? I got sucked in again.)

You open one of the 996 boxes on this floor and find...Collapse )

How could anyone throw THIS away? It's...Collapse )

Dig Deeper...Collapse )

I'd love to run a Cyberpunk style game about the Warehouse. It would be the most confusing, trippy game ever. Warehouse 23, the RPG.

Actually, it would be awesome to play it this way:Collapse )

The biggest problem is that you wouldn't be able to propose the game to anyone, because they'd already know the plot.

I just found a box with "A brand-new copy of Hello Kitty 40,000.". GG, Warehouse 23.

ho ho

Mi-Ne brand cigarettes. (Pics.)

"Why do you smoke these?! Only gamblers and prostitutes smoke this brand! They are old people cigarettes." LMAO.

(Mi-Ne is the brand Nii Jyeni smokes, by the way.)

First, I know that posting poetry is for queers. But this one is good.

Secondly, it was posted on a website in 1997, and that website no longer exists, but I really want people to appreciate the awesomeness. I feel almost bad posting this, but since the site appears to be deceased, I'm sure the author will understand.

Feel the funny.

Last Meal of the Apocalypse
By Brian Bull

The Creature sat
upon an immense onyx throne
craving, waiting, lusting
its stubby fingers clutching
at the arm rests

The hour had come
the meal arrived
despite my protests
the Creature
after countless eons
was finally served its long-awaited repast

Drooling, slurping
the Creature devoured the contents
of the crystal bowl
and shudders broke into stinging beads
of cold sweat upon
my neck

Content and crazed
the Creature belched and stared at us all
doomed souls
prey to our naiveness
victims of our best intentions

the sky shattered like glass
rainbow shards falling
into springing fountains of blood that spewed
forth from the earth

cackling madly
the Creature knew the End had arrived
the long-forgotten prophecy was now at its head
and mortals shrieked and ran
as the onslaught began

and as I sank
beneath the frothy scarlet ichor
that rolled over the streets like ocean waves
I only had a moment
to curse the day
we gave that damn rabbit
his bowl of Trix.

(In unrelated news, I finally posted the terrifying Legal info on the Coontree site. It's still beta, but it's better than nothing.)

saiyuki thoughts

Reposting this from my blog, since it sort-of counts as a "work". Mm.

* After arriving in Tenjiku and meeting their adversaries, the Sanzo party reacts exactly as we'd expect them to - by doing things totally unexpected.

Genjo Sanzo gets very drunk before breaking into the castle. Seeing Nii, he gets pissed at all the crap he's been put through and goes psycho on Nii's back end. Nii is no match for Sanzo's combination utter rage and Drunk Fu. Sanzo wakes later in Nii's lab with quite a bit of a hangover. We'll spare the reader the details of what happened while he was blacked out.

Cho Hakkai, using the hypnotic powers of a school teacher, manages to talk Gyokumen and the others out of the ressurection by convincing them all that there are other things they want more than some big psycho. Much later, he opens a school for orphaned youkai and human (since there's so many in this series). Yaone joins him as the school nurse.

Sha Gojyo decides that Gyokumen is the woman for him - partially because she reminds him of the mother he never had, and partially because she is the first woman he's ever met with a libido to rival his own. Gyukumen is quite happy with this setup, since she gets both a lover and a resiliant punching bag out of the deal.

Nii Jyeni, after getting his ass royally whooped by Genjo Sanzo, decides that Sanzo reminds him of the late Koumyou. He falls in love and follows Sanzo around to torment him, much to poor Sanzo's chagrin. (One can be sure he'll give some interesting lessons back at the temple.)

Son Goku, the Great Sage Equal to Heaven, gets lost in the castle searching for food. He misses the entire would-be final battle.

And Minekura-sensei ends up in the hospital after a long weekend of binge drinking. She recovers shortly after to continue the Gaiden.

(Hee hee, Gojyo/Gyokumen....)
