It's gorgeous here this week, unbelievably so. It's supposed to rain on Friday, though, which is an event in itself since it like- NEVER rains here so we'll see how that goes.

A few things:

- I'm no longer going to Comic Con. Seven of us were going but a couple can't swing it financially, another couple (including me) just weren't jazzed anymore about it (too many people, too much planning, too much hassle, etc) and some people were only going because everyone else was going so when some people dropped they did, too. Once people started bailing I realized I really just want to go as a group ANYWHERE, doesn't have to be a country away with 125,000 other people.

- I'm over Glee. I'm just waiting for the backlash now, honestly. I wasn't a HUGE fan but now it's so overhyped and EVERYWHERE that I'm tired of it. I still like the music, though.

- I haven't watched a SPN ep, really watched, since before Christmas. I've been re-watching all aired eps of The Vampire Diaries with [livejournal.com profile] pipry23 and I'm just getting even more into that show. So, yeah. If you're only here for SPN and have been annoyed or dismayed with my lack of SPN-centric posts it's not going to change. Feel free to defriend at will.

- Even though I'm not going to comic con it would seem there's still a trip in my future, if we can get our ducks in a row. Three of us are planning to go to NYC the same time we were going to San Diego. I AM SO FUCKING JAZZED. If only the payment would go through on my credit card so I could book the fucking plane tickets!

And that's that for now, I guess.

And I'm being totally honest about that.

Words can't describe what a change today is from last week, even though it wasn't even THAT good. I mean, in comparison it was amazing but seriously, so much beter.

Got my schedule for the part time job and I heart it through April. It's just enough for me and I have some variety and it's awesome. Plus? I'm not working tonight, which is AWESOME as I haven't had a Monday off, aside from being sick, since October.

I'm still enamoured of my new hotass purse. Have I showed you my new hotass purse? )

I have a new layout. I don't know how long I'll keep it because it might be too light for me but I've been looking at it for a few months now and I finally got up the ... gumption, I guess, to change things.

And I wrote something last night. I'd set the sleep mode on my tv and was drifting off when this image hit me and I immediately got up, turned on the light and scrambled for a pen. I haven't felt the urge to write ANYTHING, let along like THAT, in MONTHS. Today I feel like a new person.

I can't say it's good or anything but I'm going to type it up and try to post it tonight. It's for The Vampire Diaries and I have no fucking idea where it came from but I just love that I wrote something and finished it and it wasn't forced. For anyone who's ever gone through an extended period of writer's block and felt helpless and like it was gone forever knows the relief I feel. Today I don't even feel tired even though I didn't get the sleep I should have. SO HAPPY.

TV talk )

OH OH OH! AND! I've finally got a layout and tags up at [livejournal.com profile] vdaries_caps. I just have to put some rules together and an intro post and it'll be ready to go! Run, watch, post (when I have the rules up)!! Spread the word!

This time tomorrow I'll be watching New Moon. Probably a little drunk. I haven't been this excited for something in a long time. I can only hope that my day at work won't be as clusterfuck-y as it's been. Today was straight out and Fridays usually are as a rule but maybe, just maybe by some stretch of an unbelievable miracle, something good will happen and everything will be smooth as buttah and I can come home not as stressed as I have been. Please? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?!

If Saturday night's Christmas party didn't have a toonie bar I'd probably be sitting at home with D getting drunk, instead of sitting at a hotel meeting room eating with co-workers and D getting drunk. And NEXT weekend is D's birthday. And then next month I'm having a couple parties for the holidays and D and [livejournal.com profile] pipry23 are coming home around Dec 21. *pets liver* You'll be okay.

My only comment thus far on Fringe, since I'm only half watching at the moment? Holy brand placement for Ford. That's all.

Oh, and I got an invite to Google Wave. But I still don't know what the hell to do with it....

This week has been one giant shitstorm after another at work. It hasn't been particularly busy but with the break in the middle of the week for Remembrance Day it bumped everything up and gave us deadlines in the middle of the week we don't normally have. And I've had to deal with some really, really, super dumb people, as well. I can't even explain it.

I don't see tomorrow being much different either. And with the week being so weird I don't know if the department that works with us is going to get their part done in time for me to leave when I have to but I HAVE to leave at a certain time for physio and.... BLERG. Fridays seriously blow in my job. On the one hand they rock because, hey, Friday. But when you have to do two papers and deadlines are earlier and we have to proof all these ads for Saturday that we often don't see proofs for until later in the afternoon, if at all... it just makes for a stressful fucking day.

Also found out today that my massage therapist isn't where she was working from before so I kind of have to track her down again and BLAH. It's just too much right now.

Next weekend can't come soon enough. New Moon on Friday and then my Christmas party on Saturday and I get to bring one of my besties. Should be fun. Drunk and fun.

Unfortunately there won't be any caps tonight. My computer's a little funky tonight and I'm tired anyway. I'll try to get them done tomorrow but I can't guarantee anything.

My dog from home is pretty sick so if you could think good thoughts for her to hang on through the new year, that would be great.

This week has been SO BUSY and I'm SO TIRED. Even though I was sick and didn't work on Monday it feels like this week has lasted ten years. One more day. But I have to work a trade fair for my company on Saturday so... ugh. We'll see, could be fun. Right now all I can think of is sleeping for ten years, though.

I am finally sick. Not that I wanted to be but that I've been expecting it for awhile now. I usually get sick a couple times a year and when I didn't et anything after Vancouver or Denver I knew it was coming. It's not H1N1, although that's the first place people go to when you say you're sick. I just have a run-of-the-mill cold. I just get those colds that takes you down for about a week. I lose my voice, get chills, my head pounds. It's fun. I doubt I'll go to work tomorrow which kinda sucks because a) I have this weird, irrational fear that I have to pull my weight 100% of the time, every day, all day, without ever slacking off because otherwise I'll be seen as a ... slacker. So yeah. And b) because tomorrow's the day before Halloween so people were dressing up and my department was having a food Friday where everyone brings something in and we just eat all day. :( I'll see how I feel in the morning but considering how I feel now and how no one will want me breathing near the food I can't see it happening.

Someday I'll cap the last couple Melrose Place episodes. I keep meaning to but shit happens, I guess. Working the two jobs is okay, I guess, but it's hella tiring and only going to get more intense since we're getting some of our lost hours back at my full time job. Which is good but like... ugh. You know? The good thing is that the time we're getting back is going to be dedicated solely to telemarketing and nothing else so that might mean we're getting shit done on that end again. I'm actually excited for that.

My excitement for all fandoms has waned a bit, as a result of all my RL business and tiredness. My fic writing has become a barren desert, icons don't excite me much right now and I have no inspiration or drive to do much of anything else, either. I'm hoping this will change with the release of New Moon (I'm coming to terms with my lessening ironic like of Twilight [does that even make sense?) and The Vampire Diaries & I continue to cling to the hopes that people will suddenly turn to Melrose Place en masse. I don't think that cut for spoiler that I'm sure EVERYONE knows ). Sad as it is to say but SPN is moving to the backburner of my attention.

I have so much to catch up on right now. I have last week's SPN, this week's Gossip Girl (I'm picking and choosing which eps I want to cap and I have a couple to post from the start of the season that I never did) and Melrose Place (seriously! Why the fuck aren't you people watching?! It's crack at its finest!). I'm going to try to tackle some of that this weekend. Now that I'm working on top of working I'm going to be behind until Christmas. Yay.

Monday, for instance, I work 8-3, and then 3:30-10:30, then Tuesday and Wednesday from 8-3 and 5:30-9:30. *facepalm upon facepalm*. I'm also getting sick, I think, so if things go the unfortunate route by Monday I'll be damn-near on my death bed and unable to talk. Yay.

It's looking less and less likely that I'll have caps for tonight's episode tonight. The site I get the file from is down and I don't have another source. Also, I'm ASS TIRED right now and will be turning in early.

Watched The Vampire Diaries and last week's Fringe, though. I'm begrudgingly coming around to TVD. I still have part of my heart reserved for "THAT'S NOT HOW THEY DID IT IN THE BOOKS!!11!~" but the show is winning me over.

Last week's Fringe was SO GOOD! I've had it downloaded since last weekend while I was in Denver but I've worked the past two nights and was SO tired tonight I wasn't going to watch it before tonight's episode. THANK GOD I DID! Ready for tonight's ep!

On another note, there is no conspiracy at [livejournal.com profile] spnnewsletter. Promise! We don't hate Dean/Castiel or the fans. Believe what you want. And sorry, but we're never going to lj-cut it. *shrugs*

I'm so conflicted on whether to buy Transformers 2. On the one hand I have the first one and liked it enough to want to continue the series in my collection. On the other hand... it blew giant robot chunks. Hmmm.

More househunting tomorrow. I don't even know. It's so overwhelming right now and I'm doing all this crap without even knowing if I would be approved for a mortgage or for how much.

At least I have Zombieland to look forward to tomorrow. Also, D is coming home and it's Friday. After the week we've had, which wasn't especially frustrating but just... I don't even know. I'm exhausted is all I know and I'm glad it's Friday. That's all.

I'm going to look at a different place on Sunday. There's something they have going on with these houses (not condo, single family dwellings) that's only something like $744/m, plus land taxes, which could be as little as $100/m. It sounds kinda like a rent to own the way they have it set up but it's not called a rent to own. The only thing that's a draw back at this very moment is that it's in a part of town that I don't really want to live in at all. But if the house is nice enough and things go okay, I don't know. I need time to save money, though. I don't know. I was kind of having my heart set on a condo a bit. Although there are drawbacks and advantages to both. So we'll see. It's a big decision to make without doing any kind of research, for sure.

I caught Flash Forward. It was okay. Don't know if I'll catch it every week, but we'll see.

Loved Fringe again this week. This show is worming its way into my regular and constant viewing. Good job.

Went to see the condo--sort of. See, the condos aren't actually built yet. The first showhome is eta'd at February or so. Possession date on the first phase of houses is estimated around March or April. I'm definitely going to check out my finances with their monies person and see what she says and what I can do. I have a few things working against me, like a student loan debt, and not having been at my grown up job for a long enough period on paper yet that it shows I DO make enough money. But the good thing is that I can wait for a second phase, if I want, or, depending on how things go, I could just wait for my tax return next March and go from there.

With some strong budgeting over the next few months (conventions and trips home and Christmas notwithstanding) I could save more than enough for my down payment which would make my subsidy through my monthly fees cheaper. ALSO. If I get a three bedroom (which is the cheapest, compared to the two bedroom--weird, eh?) I can rent out the other two bedrooms at about $450/m or so and that would be my mortgage payment. Even at $400 each it would be awesome.

It's kind of overwhelming for me right now, especially since I know NOTHING about finances and everything numbers goes over my head for the longest time before people really dumb it down for me. Also? This is a whim thing. I mean, I've thought about getting a place before but yesterday I seriously turned the page of the paper, saw the ad and was like--Hey, I think I want to buy this. I was like that about my car, too. Forever and ever I said I'd never own a car. Then one day I came home and announced I was getting a car. End of story.

ANYWAY. Enough babbling about that.

Computer is reformatted. Not back to where it was before, but I got all the important things together in time for the episode. The main reason why I did it, however, is not solved. These caps were a mess. I don't know if it's something in my computer, or in the programme I use or WHAT. I don't know if I have to seek out a new programme to cap my files... It's just very frustrating. I'm not even sure who I could ask about this or where to look for something else to try.

Any suggestions? And for further detail, the caps are getting very pixelated, to the point of where the entire cap is just a mass of blocks. And whenever there's a lot of motion happening I rarely get clear caps. It's so irritating.

Melrose Place caps ARE coming! I capped it and I'm sorting but I took a break because I thought if reformatting the computer worked as well as I'd hoped that I could recap and get better images. Alas, no. So yes, this weekend. I think I will be capping it regularly but that'll depend on how well it holds my attention, as well.

And people from [livejournal.com profile] bobbinrob's friending meme--I haven't forgotten about you! Just busy right now, so tomorrow or this weekend I'll take a boo at things again.

AND, FINALLY. Does anyone know how to turn off that fucking annoying beeping when you do something the computer doesn't like, even when the speakers are off?!?!?!?!?!?!? I had it off before the reformat but I'll be fucked if I can remember how. And yes, I went into the control panel, sounds & audio devices, sound and tried to turn everything to "no sound". I even went through and changed most of the sounds that were on in the other profile to none but it hasn't worked. HELP?!

I had a great day. I slept pretty much soundly and woke up around 8:30. Sat around, got showered and went to the SPCA. Didn't get to spend too long there, though. I just wanted to be out of the house since there was more fighting with the cousin-by-marriage. It seems he could very well be going back home on or around June 15th. Say it with me now, HOORAY!

Then D and I went to Costco where I spent far too much money, then to Walmart which wasn't as fun as usual, thanks in large part to the annoying people there. Then we went out for supper, then back to my place due to the possibility of D being able to see cousin-by-marriage's girlfriend. Alas, she did not materialize.

We watched My Bloody Valentine in 3-D which was sort of awesome but mostly annoying. We had to take a break halfway because the 3-D is rose/green and annoying. Also, the glasses are green on the left and rose on the right, but if you take them off and look through one eye at a time the colours are reversed. So your right eye is seeing more green and the left sees more rose. Anyone know if this is an over correction done by the eyes since they're looking through the opposite colours through the glasses?

THEN we went to get slushes, and then I made D watch the 2 hour pilot for Queer as Folk. I have wanted her to watch this for so long and she's invested now. She loves Brian, loves Emmett, loves Debbie. She finds Michael and Justin whiny, which is totes justified for s1, but I told her things will start changing and the characters get better. Well, Justin does.

We've been trying to do a re-watch of Supernatural since [livejournal.com profile] pipry23 was still here but we're only on the second disc of s2 and we've already seen them all. D hasn't seen any of QaF so I really want to get her into it before she leaves for school in September. I want to fall in love with the show again, too!

I'm feeling better from yesterday although my throat still hurts like a bitch and my lip is still hella swollen as it appears that's where they put like five needles or something into me. It still feels numb at times, even. My right nostril hurts the worst, too.

Thank everything there's still two days left of my weekend!

I did that icon meme again where people give you 6 of your icons to explain and then you do and ask other people about their icons. So if you want, ask me to pick some of your icons to explain.

So the feeling most of us have right now isn't so much, "Oh boy! The finale! I bet it's gonna be good!" as it is, "Alright. Here we go. Get your shit buckled in and try to keep track of the pieces of your heart to glue back together later."

Amirite?

Had my second massage today. My neck is le fucked. I can still feel some of the trigger points spasming and after she finished today I felt dizzy and headache-y, which is good but damn if it wasn't weird. I go back again in two weeks.

Oh, and can anyone dumb down what's been going on with Lost for me? I just watched the last 15 minutes of the finale but haven't seen an episode in... oh, two months or so, so I'm just this side of lost. Lost in LOST. Oh, I am so witty.

Big Bang peeps! I haven't had the energy to work on it yet this week beyond the 3000 I added on Sunday on account of this week being balls. I'll try to get the last couple scenes I need in there this weekend so we can start the betaing process.

Very excited for the weekend. I'm intending to do nothing but get dragged somewhat willingly to Star Trek on Saturday. And, with any luck, my Blackberry won't wipe my instant messages this weekend as it has been doing for the past 6-8 weeks. I did a wipe last night with the help of a Telus agent (the first one in awhile that didn't seem totally incompetent) and restored everything.

Getting plot bunnies again and the real urge to write again. I hope it's not a fluke. I have Sweet Charity and meme-type things to get done!

It looks like I'll be Big Banging until tomorrow night. I thought I was going to have it mostly finished up tomorrow but I'm noticing scenes here and there that need to have somewhat of a resolution to them and I still need to wrap up the ending which could be anywhere between 1000-2000 words. But I can do it. I THINK I've found a title but I don't know if I want it to be quite so literal. I'm a rather literal person, though, so unless something better comes along I know what I'm using, I think.

I also have to come up with an effing summary which is the worst thing ever. I'm one of those people that takes the first line from the fic or a passage from the fic to use as a summary. But you can't do this here, really, because people are applying to make art for your fic on the basis of your summary. Can't very well have a random like like--Jared scratched his ass and wondered if Jensen found it hot--or something and expect people to envision art for your fic on that. Well, I guess they could, but in the grand scheme of the other 19,990 words it wouldn't make much sense.

The good thing about the Big Bang right now is that I'm not writing to get word count at this point. I'm writing to wrap up scenes so if they fall short of what I was expecting that's okay. I have my 20,000 (over 22,000 at this point) and it's going to get longer with editing because I think there are a few scenes I'm going to need to lay out the relationships a bit better but for right now it functions fine as it is. IF I CAN FINISH THE MOTHER EFFING ENDING!

I also had coffee for the first time today in something like six years. It tasted like liquidy, burning, bitter ass and I only had a couple mouthfuls before I dumped it out. Sometimes it's like when you haven't had like- apple juice since you were three and you NEED to try it. Except when I did that (seriously, didn't drink apple juice in something like a decade) it was MADE OF WIN. This? Not so much.
