An Update

Jun. 26th, 2013 | 10:52 pm

I know this is long-overdue, and I apologize.

As many of you know, I left SLO back at the end of February. I'd like to say it was my own choice, but it wasn't. Several things all converged at the same time: My landlord passed away, I got a job offer in Altadena, and my dad's available funds to help me stay on the Central Coast ran out, all at once.

After leaving San Luis, I returned home to LA and started work at a local veterinary hospital. What was supposed to be a 40-hour week turned out to be a near-60-hour week, and I haven't had much time to myself since. What time I have had has been sporadic, stressful, and filled with that horrific manic energy that you only get when something horrible awaits you at the end of the day.

Right now, I'm home sick with a throat infection-- the second I've gotten since starting this job --and I think I'm not really cut out for such long hours.

On to other things: I haven't forgotten that I have commissions due; I've arted a little since the move, but nothing concrete due to the inability to take a full day to do much of anything. I'm hoping I can find some way to allot my time to allow for proper arting.

And a big thank you to the people who sent me birthday wishes. I'm sorry I didn't really respond. I hope this internet hug makes up for it: ( ._.|._. )

You are all awesome, and I'm really grateful to have such great internet buddies.

Because, why not?

Post with a character from a fandom I follow, and I'll respond with...

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

Also: After a trip to LA tomorrow, expect an art update within the coming week or so. :3

What Happened Today ( ._.)

Oct. 17th, 2012 | 04:44 pm

Voodoo went into the shop around three, and I went off to go rent a car for the day while the mechies did their thing. While I was at the rental place, a very sad looking lady walked up to me, and asked if I was headed to Big Sur.

"No," said a kiffs, "I'm headed South." And the lady looked even sadder. She was trying to get to Treebones, a resort in the forest, to stay the weekend. I told her that if she made her way to Highway 1, she'd have better luck in finding someone to take her North. Or, better, she could head to the train station and see if any buses were headed out that way.

She thanked me and got a ride with one of the other folks to the train station.

As I drove home, I felt bad for her. She'd gotten so close-- SLO is about 60 miles from Big Sur --but couldn't manage the rest of the trip. So I ran inside, double-checked the directions, and hopped back into the rental.

I found her at the train station. I offered her a ride. She shook her head, sadly. She'd just cancelled her reservation, and was heading back on the last outbound train. It just wasn't meant to be.

She said she'd try again another time. I hope she makes it. She seemed so excited about getting to Treebones, and I felt terrible that her weekend had been ruined.

Good News, Bad News

Oct. 17th, 2012 | 11:34 am

Good news:

Kiffies has a job as a pizza jerk/delivery kiffs!

Bad news:

Voodoo decided that her starter was no longer a necessary part, and made me (and a Friendly Stranger) push her out of the Alberston's parking lot.

I hope she gets her shit together by tomorrow, because I have work at 9am. B|

What the hell--

Oct. 15th, 2012 | 07:17 pm

Warning for... disturbing shit.

A few months ago, my mom received a call from a local construction company that ran similar to, "I'm from so-and-so Construction, and we'd like to know when we can come out to look at your house!"

My mom politely told the guy that she isn't the owner of the house, that our family rents, and that she wasn't interested in the unsolicited call. He hung up.

Since it just seemed to be a case of mistaken identity, she didn't bother to commit the company name to memory.

A few days later, she received another call from the same guy, who, after asking for her, proceeded to call her a bitch and several other colorful names before hanging up again.

She hadn't heard anything from him again until today, when he called again, asked for her by name, then said, "A woman's place is dead in the desert."

Since he's calling from a number that her phone can't recognize, she can't report him or even figure out what the hell is going on. When she gets her phone bill, she's going to see if she can trace the number and find out. But that might be weeks.

( ._.)


Mom says she's going to think about filing a police report over the weekend, so we'll see what comes of that. Thanks, everyone, for the concern. I'll update my journal as I find out things.

It's raining!

After an entire summer without much rain, at all, it's finally pouring!

Last night had some glorious, house-shaking thunder, as well. :D

Why am I watching "Ghost" again?

This is why I shouldn't own movies.
