I'm tired, achy tonight. I'll probably be around YIM, but if you tolerance for self-indulgent whining is low you might not want to chat with me. I'll try to tag in docs, but inspiration and energy stores are on 'E'.

Okay, it's been forever since I've done a real update, so I'll try to catch up on the important moments in the last - what? - two months or so? *shrugs* A long time at any rate. My life is pretty routine anyway, so it won't take that long.

The excitement that is my life )
I'm going to try to remember to post answers to my lyric meme tonight, so if you want to guess go and do it now! :D

I'm tired and my allergies are still messing with me. I spent all day yesterday miserable with them. Got nothing accomplished around the house and no errands run. Blergh. I need to move to the desert or something.

I submitted my audition for the Caliga character I mentioned. Fingers crossed that he gets approved, people! He's an oddity for me. I don't usually go for OCs, but I like him. Eep! If he's accepted, I'll have to make a new Caliga characters icon.

Am currently waiting for Meredith to finish getting ready for school - which started half an hour ago.

Want to go back to bed and make my headache go away, except it probably wouldn't. I think my headache is because I'm not breathing well enough while I sleep because of the allergies stuffing me up. Would explain why I'm so flippin' tired, too. So, more sleep would probably not help, but it's SO tempting.


I have a number of planned scenes, and a number of scenes in progress, and yet still feel like I'm not accomplishing anything. I did finish one scene yesterday that will post today. Woo hoo!

I had a good time at the engagement party I went to on Sunday. Tracey and Steve (Mer's aunt and her BF) have been dating for nearly nine years and finally decided to get married. June of 2009 is the plan. It was at Sherri's house (Mer's other aunt), which is friggin' huge and beautiful. She made these adorable chocolate covered strawberries. Some were totally coated in white chocolate - like a wedding dress - and some were coated with white, then strategically coated with milk chocolate - like a shirt and jacket - with little milk chocolate dots for buttons down the 'shirt'. Adorable. Wish I had a picture. Tasty, too. I devoured a couple 'grooms'.
I made pirate panty icons and a few text icons. Woo hoo!

Iconses! )

Other items of note (or that I feel like sharing, noteworthy or not):

- Today is my 11th wedding anniversary. Obviously didn't celebrate it, as James and I are separated.
- Went to see Iron Man with Mom, Kenny, James, and Mer. Enjoyed it, although I'm not as rapturous over it as a lot of people.
- Elephants have moved in above me. Graceless elephants. Wish they would learn how to walk without shaking the freaking building. Seriously, I never heard my previous upstairs neighbors. The new ones are clomping around 24/7. Annoying. Might have to say something.
- I do not understand the appeal of Rod Stewart. Can't stand his music.
- I'm out of milk again. I bought two gallons last weekend. Apparently we are some serious milk drinkers. Not really a surprise. Ovaltine FTW!
- I think I'm going to take a 401K loan and pay off the personal loan I have. On the one hand, I hate to deplete my 401K, but on the other hand, it's trading a ridiculously high interest rate for a very low one. The 401K loan is repaid directly out of my paycheck in an amount of time I get to select, AND it doesn't show up on my credit report. Not to mention that I'm paying the interest to myself, essentially, with a 401K loan. Decision: Benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
- I want to scene more. Who wants to scene with me? In Caliga I've got Susan, Romy, Miles, and Sam. In Muove I've got Susan, Romy, and Emma. They're all looking at you with puppy eyes. Play with them.
- Speaking of scening, I'm planning to audition another Caliga character. Yeah, I know. I know.
- Continuing to speak of RPGs, if you aren't playing, are you reading? Why not? Go, read. It's fun! [ profile] caliga_rpg and [ profile] si_muove_rpg. Check 'em out.
- Need to send out snail mail. Badly. Am a bad friend.

So. I woke up this morning to discover that I've caught Meredith's pink eye. *sigh* This was quickly followed by the realization that I'd sent the eye drops from the last time I had pink eye to NC with Meredith. Probability of drops not returning with her tomorrow: Pretty high.

Tomorrow is the one day out of the fiscal month that I have to go to work. Ergo, cannot go to the doctor until Tuesday if the drops are not returned to me.

Was supposed to see Iron Man today with my mom. Canceled due to allergies and pink eye. Mom was disappointed.

Mom asked if Mer and I want to go away for the long weekend to Cherokee/Asheville/Bryson City (where my great-grandfather was born). Mer's aunt is recently engaged and the engagement party is next weekend. We've both said we'd be there. Mom was disappointed. Told her I'll talk to Mer and see if I can convince her to miss the party. This is unlikely, as we're talking about Mer's favorite aunt, who is much more fun than her mom, grandmother, and uncle with Down Syndrome on a days long trip to the country. Could leave her behind with her dad for the weekend, but Mom would be disappointed. Do we sense a theme here? Could force her to go, but will then have a grumpy teenager spoiling everyone's good time and annoying me with her constant text messaging.

On the plus side, I tagged in on five scenes this morning and then went back to bed for two hours. Have I mentioned that I love Married!Romy/Oliver? I do. They're sickening. It's fun to have a blissfully happy character. And hello? Smuts like whoa. And, of course, Erin is teh awesome, even in Tokyo.

I need to eat. And shower. And clean. And GROCERY SHOP - NO FOOD! And hopefully scene some more. Nap again? Maybe.

Mer's gone until Monday. Woot! I've been pretty frustrated with her the last couple weeks, so this break is well-timed. She and her dad (and the rest of their crew) are headed down to NC to see Jeff Dunham (?). I think he's a comedian/ventriloquist guy.

I have seven rpg characters. Why do I not have more scenes? Must find plot. *looks under cushions* Who wants to scene with me? Anyone? Anyone? (I actually do have some things lined up, but they're mostly stand-alone scenes. Not much meaty stuff.)

I have seven characters that aren't being scened terribly often as it is, so why am I tempted to bat eyelashes to be allowed a 4th Muove character? Because I want a Muove boy. Three girls and a boy, that's my thing. In Caliga it's Susan, Romy, Sam, and Miles. In Muove I have Susan, Romy, and Emma. No boy. I'm not sure WHICH boy, but I have a VR picked and everything. For a character I can't have, don't need, and have no plan for. Logic - not my strong suit.

I'll be putting up a lyric meme later. Fair warning.

My boss bought lunch for us today. Yay Jeff.

Our new subcontracts rep is a nice-ish guy, but he's so not getting the job done. He's overwhelmed, which may or may not be the reason for his incompetence, but he also has no tact and little professionalism. Very soon the villagers will be coming for him with pitchforks. It won't be pretty. Poor bastard just relocated here from another state, bet he regrets that.

I'm pretty sure there was more I wanted to say, but I can't think of what it was.

Just a quick update, in list form. I haven't done a real update in awhile now, so I'm going back a ways. Forgive me if I'm repeating myself.

- Spent ~$700 getting the Sebring fixed a few weeks ago. It had been parked since last September.
- Last weekend Mer run up onto a curve in said Sebring. Popped a tire, screwed up the alignment, and broke off a good chunk of plastic guard underneath the engine.
- Sebring is now parked again.

- Is out of school sick for the third day this week.
- Is no longer seeing Derek, and may start dating Vasy again. (She dated him last fall and they went to homecoming together. He's the one with the crazy mother.)
- Told Derek they couldn't be friends right now because when he texted her the sight of his name made her throw up. Suspect this might actually have been the bug she's got rather than disgust at ex-boyfriend.

- Had a fun cinco de mayo party on Monday. Got a little tipsy, but was ok to drive home by the end of the day. Not sure I accomplished much that afternoon, though.
- I really need to get ready to go there.

- Caliga Ortus has several openings for characters who've puppeteers have left/are leaving the game. Off the top of my head I believe there is: Severus Snape, Pansy Parkinson, Cormac McLaggen, Michael Corner, Padma and Parvati Patil, and Su Li. If you're interested in picking one of these folks up, you can go to and get the audition form. Would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the character as he/she has been played thus far first. For that you can go to [ profile] caliga_rpg and click on the character's name in 'tags'.
- There is a nifty new community for posting historical, future, and AU Caliga scenes called [ profile] caliga_plus. You can also request scenes.
- There's a new HP rpg starting up, Si Muove. If you're interested in joining, go to [ profile] si_muove_ooc and send an application for the character you'd like to play.

That's all for now. I'd better get to the office.
