Ya'll don't really care about my crappy day so I'll skip to the important part - I got a roll of film developed finally. So, many pics under cut - could take a bit to load, just warning you.

So - Fear My Pic Spam!!

Colonel Brandon sleeping on the bed.

Snape Bear )
My Severus Teddy bear complete with his toupee hair. Snow White bear moved in on Severus pretty quick, and really who could blame her?

Remember a while back when I mentioned the spider I found in the house? And how I tried to flush it and it CAME BACK OUT OF THE POTTY? I still freak out at night and have to turn the lights on before I go to make sure it's not in there. I told you I took a picture.

Spider in the toilet )
As you can see I've left the entire toilet seat in the picture as a visual reference for scale. Yes, the spider was HUGE on the scale of things I would rather not have creeping through my house.

The last two pics are of boxes [livejournal.com profile] rewil and I made to hold our BPAL imps and bottles. I would have a pic of [livejournal.com profile] perkygothess's box but it wasn't finished when I had the camera out so I missed out.
Pretty Boxes )
The green book shaped box will hold 35 5ml bottles. The black box can hold another seven or eight bottles plus an ammo box for 100 imps.

Okay, I admit it. I've done shit as far as taking care of myself lately. I missed my Doc appt. in June and never rescheduled. I ran out of meds and didn't bother getting them refilled. I HAVE watched my diet but it was Halloween people. Halloween!

I've really felt like crap lately and the other night's scare made me realize it's probably because I actually NEED to be on the stupid meds. I'm going to try to see the Doc this week. So not looking forward to that at all.

What does that mean in the big scheme of things? It means that trips to KS are suspended until I can get my blood sugar under control because I know I've been getting all wonky lately and I do not need to do that at the wheel of a my car mid drive on a busy highway, know what I'm sayin'?

So... that sucks monkey butt. Through a straw.

In other news - I made icons. The Bacon one was made for [livejournal.com profile] hrhjahi.

Last night I had a craving for some kind of beef/cheese thing that I couldn't define. So I ordered a large beef, pepperoni and extra cheese from Pizza Hut. They were sort of puzzled when I told them I didn't really care what the crust was and to go with whatever was easiest (I think we settled on hand tossed) but I didn't really care. As soon as the pizza got to my house I pulled the topping off and threw the entire crust into the fridge to possibly be consumed later if I suddenly desire bread.

The toppings ended up in two bowls, were nuked once to reheat and then were eaten with a fork. It was tasty. Yet expensive.

In other news, I'm picking fights with friends for no real reason other than I'm being pissy. It's a lovely trait and I'm sure everyone adores me for it. Except no. So, if you're reading this, and I did, I'm so sorry I'm being an asshat. Seriously.

Last night I put the first Children of the Darned on line at [livejournal.com profile] darnedchild (well, it's been on-line for years, but this is the first time it's ever been anywhere but on the e-version of the college newspaper it was published in oh those many long years ago). It just occurred to me, we're (as in [livejournal.com profile] rewil who was my co-culprit in the creation of CotD) probably going to need to do a bit of creative editing because I know we name at least one RL person in the strip at some point during it's 76 comic run. I bet I could photoshop his LJ name in instead if I had to... will need to talk to Rewil and see what she thinks.

I also put up the new Quibbler (only two days late), posted ads for both [livejournal.com profile] bw_afterglow and [livejournal.com profile] __lightning__ on various RP sites, did a long rambling [livejournal.com profile] just_myrtle journal entry (which was really odd because it's been ages since I had to step into full blown depressed Myrtle - as opposed to giddy and horny Myrtle - and I've sort of gotten used to Daphne who is... not a depressed angst machine) and an AG post for her. Made a new icon featured on today's post. Am considering a horror-movie theme for the next few icons as I've already gotten two zombies and a Psycho in the last week. Maybe something in a platonic lesbian rain dancing sequence from Dracula... or not. Paid the bills. Went grocery shopping. Went to the vet and discovered that the demon cat will be getting his antidepressants via ear massage gel stuff this time - I was told I simply must wear rubber gloves other wise I will get wacked out like whoa. Played a little NWN - my old character had gotten deleted during the great Severus-Gilderoy transfer of June so I started over with a nice Drow Rogue who will be taking levels of Shadowdancer soon.

I'm sure there was some other stuff I did last night/this morning, but my brain has started to shut down after being up all night and running errands so... it's all cheese to me.

Seriously, I ate one of those jumbo Fudge Round things around ten pm last night and was on a sugar fueled rush until well after seven am.

I did a lot last night. Most of it was technical behind the scenes stuff getting ready for [livejournal.com profile] __lightning__ to launch on Monday, so I won't bore you with the details. I was running three characters in four different threads, working on backdated history posts for Daphne's past on Lightning (still so far behind there), made eleven Katie Bell icons for [livejournal.com profile] perkygothess, wrote the summary for [livejournal.com profile] quibbling, and put the Quibbler on-line.

And then - sometime between four and six am - I did these. I'll put them behind a cut cause I'm nice that way.

Photoshop Experiment #27 - Lightning Strikes )

They're meant to work as Pimp banners for Lightning, but when one is very tired the animated one becomes hypnotic. Seriously.

Heard my husband's voice for the first time since June. It was only three minutes, but it was nice to hear him. Of course, he woke me out of my drop-dead-in-exhaustion moment so I wasn't very much with the coherent and there seemed to be a large angry duck on the phone line squawking every few seconds, but it was still nice.

Firstly - [livejournal.com profile] revena made me the kick arse icon I'm using at the moment. I adoressess it, yes, my precious.

Miah complains about her sleep schedule for two paragraphs. She rambles. You can skip down. Really. )

And finally, because we are always looking for new players, I feel obligated to post the fugly banner I made for Afterglow.

I've offered this before but it makes me giggle and [livejournal.com profile] perdyta made something for me when I commented on her LJ so in the spirit of fairness, I'm going to do it again.

But first, I shall present the lovely pic that she made me.

Alan and ABBA )

Now, on to the memage:

1. Comment and I'll pick one or two of your lj interests and draw you a picture, make you an icon using PSE, or write something. A drabble, or an icon, or a bad sketch... It'll be a surprise!

2. You have no say as to what I draw create for you or as to how much it will suck.

3. Copy this and the thing I create for you into your journal. (Optional)

Yesterday (or technically this morning) I stayed up until four am working on my PSE project.

I ended up with six different versions. I narrowed it down to two and then went to bed. When I was once again able to move around the house without looking like an extra from the Land of the Dead (which I desperately want to see, but not desperately enough to actually leave the house and go to the theatre by myself) I pinged anyone on my IM list who was on at the moment and asked their opinion.

Cut because I'm polite enough to realize no one really wants to read about my day. )

If you're reading this, DH, you can stop laughing anytime now.

Tomorrow (tonight) there will be sushi. And Hibachi steak and shrimp. And flames. Yay, house guest!

I know I promised to update on Sis's wedding and the move and Afterglow. (psst... read [livejournal.com profile] quibbling) but I can't because it's too fucking hot.

The AC broke down again. Second time since I moved in 13 days ago.

[livejournal.com profile] devsgma was brilliant enough to figure out what the problem most likely is. Something about the humidity and the gunk in the vents and the AC being brilliantly cold most of the time and the furnace vent literally freezing. So no cold air comes out. Which means the AC chugs away but the house gets back up to 85 or 90 and the animals get all lethargic and panty and Miah gets all lethargic and barfy.

Upshot is that if I turn the AC off long enough the vents defrost and I get cold air again. For about a week. And then it freezes. Again.

And why the fuck does this always happen on a weekend or after 6 o'clock when the realtor is closed so I can't call and complain and have to spend the day/night/whatever in the heat waiting for my vent to defrost like a refrigerator?

Did I mention that when the house gets hot the stench of cat piss comes rolling out of the carpet padding in the small bedroom and the living room like an evil fog that makes me want to barf for a completely different reason? The people before us apparently didn't believe that problem kitties need to be locked up in rooms without carpet.

In other news - I adore my new icon. I colored the smurfs myself, because it is impossible to find purple smurfs anywhere (the GNAP was from the French version where the smurf was black) and I know they existed. The purple smurfs were just like the Rage infected zombies from 28 Days Later, if the zombies were very tiny and ran around yelling Gnap and biting tails. Aren't they cranky looking? La la lala la la, la lala la la

Was in chat with the ladies of Afterglow and [livejournal.com profile] rillathegrape found a lovely picture that could be Aberforth Dumbledore - you remember, Albus' brother with the... umm... goats?

And now, due to special request and the magic of my mad photoshop skillz (and by mad I mostly mean not very good) I give you:

Abeforth Dumbledore


I wouldn't view this at work, I'm just sayin' )

That's pretty much the extent of what I wanted to say.

Oh, the latest issue of The Quibbler is out. As always, feel free to comment on the issue, or about Afterglow (the writers love the attention, believe me) or ask questions for the Ask Rita column.
