I'm kind of putting the horse before the cart with the condo thing. Or, rather, I'm putting the furniture before the house. I keep looking for deals on furniture and appliances and whatnot. I have NOTHING for this condo. NOTHING, you guys. I have like- a sandwich maker and my desk. Everything is back home. I don't have the money to ship what I have back home out here, either. The only things I want from there are my desk, table from the basement and the set of goblets from my grandparents, that I know of.

When I go home in March I'll have to go through my stuff and see what I might be able to pack up and send here, I guess.

Speaking of the condo, things have progressed a slight bit with that. Kind of. See, I get over half my pay from commission. But as anyone who works in a commission-based job knows that you can't always rely on it for consistency. So to be considered for this condo I need two years of commission under my belt, which won't be until next August. BUT the finance lady said that in five months maybe they could fudge it a bit. ALSO if I had a part time job with guaranteed hours a week it would help.

So I'm working at HMV again, starting next month. I was going back for Christmas anyway, just for a few extra dollars, but I asked today if they were planning on keeping anyone after Christmas and the manager said yes. So if I could get 9-15 hours extra a week that would help, I think. That would be almost $500 extra a month, if I got consistent hours.

I don't know for sure if any of this will help me out for sure-SURE but it can't hurt. And if I can get my credit card down a bit and save up more of a down payment that can't hurt, either, right? I'm seriously not joking how quickly I decided I wanted this. It was as simple as waking up and everything being normal, to deciding I wanted this about three hours later.

ANYWAY. I posted icons. They're OOOOOOLD icons but icons, nonetheless.

But instead I made this hotass icon for [ profile] icon_crack.

I don't know what to make of this but it's hot. Oh, new!Ruby. I have such a love/hate relationship with you.

I had intentions to do a lot of things today including, but not limited to, writing an RPattz/KStew fic, making icons and working on Big Bang.

I did none of those. Well, I did make an icon but not for what I was supposed to.

Show tomorrow!

The wind is blowing ferocious outside right now and my windows have started to fog up almost completely in the less than five minutes it's been since I looked out them. Awesome. Two days of AMAZING, warm, melt-y weather and now more snow. Lamesauce.

I posted more icons! I have to catch up to [ profile] spuzz who is like- more than double up on me for posting. And I have to do Sweet Charity icons. Now that I have one out of the way I can work on the other two! Whee!

While at work and trying to figure out what kind of phrase to put in our Valentine's Day Scramble feature I stumbled over a list of quotes. One in particular, "Love is friendship set on fire" stood out to me so much that I emailed it home to myself because, you know, who does that scream?

I was only going to post that one quote and go from there. And then I thought, let's put a picture with it! And then it evolved from there, into this. I'm posting it now because the next couple days are going to be busy busy! F13 on Friday! Anti-VD party on Saturday!

In conclusion,


Love is... (kinda image heavy) )

And finally, icons made from the coloured picspam! I'll be reposting these at [ profile] morbid_girls, too, but I thought I'd post them here first as a gift to the flist. I hope you like them!

My hands are shaking right now from holding the shovel and I can't make proper fists. But the shoveling is done! The uncle was using an ice pick/scraper-majigy to get the packed down snow off but he was also switching off that with the shoveling with the cousin, and I was doing my side by myself so I was like- um, shoveling only, plz. But my side was easier because he parks in the garage so his truck didn't protect the driveway from most of the snow, whereas Edward did on my side.

ANYWAY. Enough about snow. I posted icons last week, a couple days before Christmas, and didn't crosspost about them because I knew everyone would be off doing other things. So.

64 SPN and related icons

I dislike all my user icons right now, or most of them, so I think it's time to do a delete and re-load.

GG and OTH were just okay tonight. I'm more excited for Canada's Worst Driver 4 and Dragon's Den and the season 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer I'm re-watching. I'm going through the show again. BUT ONLY TO THE END OF s5. And then I might pick and choose a couple eps from s6 and 7 to watch but they don't ACTUALLY exist.

LJ STILL hasn't addressed the THOUSANDS of comments complaining about the new profile layout. People with sight disabilities literally CANNOT use the layout and yet nothing. There MIGHT be something from the LJ staff tomorrow, but that's a MIGHT. I'm BEYOND disappointed by this whole shitfest. I hated the profile from the beta, as did the majority of people, but I'd be willing to live with it now ONLY IF they overhauled it again. If we're going to be FORCED to use something that was unnecessary to start with at least give us something USEABLE. The opt-out likely won't happen so the design team has many more "hundreds of hours" to go, working on this mess. Supposedly that's how long it took them to come up with the monstrosity we have now.

I'm mostly getting more and more pissed off by the response from the LJ team, which has been NOTHING. The poster of the entries announcing the profile and that it went live has answered maybe two comments and [ profile] marta has been trying to answer some, as she is always the one thrown to the wolves in these situations, but it's not enough. If some of the user base cannot even LOOK at the user info without getting a migraine there are seriously fucked up issues with this layout and it should be taken down.

It SHOULD have been taken down immediately, but whatever. ANYWAY. The last and most recent post for this shit storm is here, if you want to catch up or add your own comment to the pile.

FINALLY getting my car today. FINALLY. Good lord I never realized there was SO MUCH SHIT involved with buying a car. But I suppose once you have one it gets easier for the next one? I'm going into work late, though, so I can get my damn registration because we got there last night the MINUTE they closed. LAME.

Also, [ profile] truebloodnews. Started on a bit of a whim but right now there's not much in the way of news so it can be a weekly and [ profile] gwentastic and I can switch off. If anyone's interested in helping out, making it every three weeks or so (or even twice weekly) comment to the first edition over there.

It was 31 C here today. Tomorrow it's supposed to be 17 C. Welcome to Alberta. :| I saw yellow leaves on a tree today. SADFACE. Make summer stay?

I ripped the SPN S3 gag reel for ipods. Two are for ipod, one larger and one smaller and one is an mp4 file but for regular watching, won't go on an ipod (trial and error with the ripping programme, donchaknow).

Please, please, please comment if you're taking. It's my first time ripping things and it took me quite a few tries to get it right.

No bigbang progress to report--not yet, anyway. I always seem to want to write in the wee hours of the morning.

I'm contemplating getting deeper into the Gossip Girl fandom. I could write fic there, I think. Serena/Chuck all the way, baby!

I posted icons! 65 multi-fandom/request icons (I totally bungled the math in the breakdown at the post).

I'll probably be putting another post taking more requests later.

Speaking of icons [ profile] turnyourankle has a weird/angering situation going on right now. You all know the show Skins, right? Well, she made an icon about a year ago that was used in someone else's banner that was submitted in an official E4 graphics contest (I think that's the gist) for Skins. This person WON. She gets an official viewing party or something from E4. [ profile] turnyourankle wrote to E4 and said that one of the icons used in this person's graphic was her own but E4 wrote back saying it wasn't hers and there was nothing she could do.

Copyright and ownership of image crap aside, this is despicable. This is as bad as ripping off someone else's words to put in your own fic. If you want to find out more about it and help her out by complaining to E4 see this post. We all jump on fic plagiarists, and this is no different.

Valentine's Day is coming. Woo. *twirls finger* I'm more excited for the cheap v-day candy and the start of spring break on Friday. THANK GOD. Words cannot describe how ready I am for a vacation, even if I don't do anything but wallow in my hatred for this programme.

I'm getting worried I won't get my [ profile] abouttwoboys fic done this week. Or any fic due this month, for that matter. :( I WANT to write but I'm having such a hard time getting excited and motivated to do it. I think now that the request icons are done I'm just going to force myself to write. I'll TRY to get my fic done for Thursday but, I mean, it's Monday and I have about 500 words. UGH.

I was going to do an unpopular fandom opinions post this morning but, luckily, I got tied up in other things.

Hey hi, new!old pictures of Jared that [ profile] moonilicious posted for us so generously today! She needs more recognition for all the hard work and wonderful things she brings to this fandom!


I signed up for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang today, like just about everyone else on my flist. I don't know yet if I'll have a filter. I want to talk more about writing in general to see if it will inspire me to keep on the fics that I start and remain motivated. How do all of you stay motivated for the fics that you get ideas for? I seriously have a plot bunnies document with over 50 ideas, some fleshed out with paragraphs and everything, and doesn't include what I've jotted down in my notebook or that I have due for various fic assignments.

Do you get other people to hound you or work at your own pace?

I also have other questions about RPF fics. I was having an issue with my [ profile] abouttwoboys fic, in the planning stages. I kind of fixed it last night by reversing who would be which character from the movie but at the same time there are still a lot of secondary characters I have to fill. I have Jared and Jensen, Chad, Chris and Steve, probably Sandy and Daneel in there because I feel I can legitimately include them without it seeming too far-fetched. But to extend to Tom, Mike, the rest of the cast of OTH and SV, Wentworth Miller, etc, etc... it feels too forced and weird to me in a lot of instances (sometimes people can make it work but it's rare for me).

Where do you draw the line with including various other actors who may or may not have a close or distant connection to Jared/Jensen/actor of choice?

Also, including family members of the people in an RPF fic (Jared and Jensen's families). I've included Jared's family in last year's Big Bang but I think Megan was the only one I actually named. In my head his parents were totally faceless, anonymous people. I'm not sure where that falls on the spectrum of going too far.

See, I have this idea that I've wanted to write for awhile where Megan is involved, with the end result being a Jared/Jensen fic. She's a key character but there wouldn't be anything sexual with her or anything. I still feel a little weird about it, though.

Basically this all comes down to how I proceed with the fic assignments I have coming up, my BB and how I tackle my plot bunnies folder, if I can ever get to the ideas I have in there without something else popping up first. I have a few ideas I could use that are pre-existing for my BB but I'm unsure of whether to use one of those or to come up with something new. I have one idea that I could re-work and use easily, I think, but I've been thinking about doing an SPN fic, instead of RPF this year. Maybe something involving Ruby since I love, love, love her. HOW TO DECIDE?! Maybe I SHOULD have a filter, oy.

Either way, I'd love to hear what people have to say about the things I've talked about here. I'd like to know what other people think about these things that I've been struggling with!

Also, if you've posted a wish list/holiday list/whatever, can you link me? I've started to bookmark some of them but I've missed a lot and, honestly, I don't know if I'll ever look at those bookmarks. It's much easier to have the links in one place.
