mugglechump: (Twilight: Bella Hit That)
( Nov. 20th, 2008 11:23 pm)
In honor of you flisters who are salivating for the Twilight movie, I give you one of my new Twilight icons, which made me laugh loudly.

In other icon news, I'm re-doing all my icons. I'm not quite halfway there yet, but I'm pleased with my progress. It was time for a change. I rarely used many, many of the ones I had. Take a peek and see what you think!

I need to branch out a bit in my rpg-ing. As tends to happen, I've fallen into scening with a group of usual suspects. Not that I mind, really. I adore my regular scene buddies, but RL has claimed a number of them recently and left me without much in my queue. Hard as that is to imagine when someone has ten characters across two rpgs. This weekend I've got to get started on Bishop & Tonks wedding. Which is, oddly enough, occurring on the same day as...

My exchange fic is due. Need to make serious progress on that this weekend, too.

I might have to claim this as a 'me' weekend and tell everyone I'm unavailable - don't come over, don't call. The large part of me that's a hermit thinks that's a great idea.

Um... That's about it. :D

Why is my internetz so slow tonight? It's irritating.

Why is Lys' LJ not letting me comment on her entry? That's irritating, too. Although she's probably just as happy not to hear from me on this topic. *winks* Just kidding. Lys tolerates my conservative indignation with very good humor. That's one of the many reasons I love her.

Why is it that I can spend the entire afternoon being attacked by a plot bunny, but as soon as I sit in front of my computer it skulks into its warren and won't come out? Bah. Stupid work. If I wasn't so busy there, I could have written the blasted drabble already. Unfortunately, I am really, really busy.

I'm planning to close out my lyric meme tomorrow. If you want to make some final guesses, you can do that here:

I updated my favorite character meme with the answers that weren't guessed. If you're curious, you can find that here:

If you haven't been to and you are a Twilight fan, you should go. She has nifty outtakes and other squee-inducing stuff. The most phenomenal being the first chapter of Midnight Sun, which will eventually be published. Midnight Sun is Twilight, but from Edward's POV. Guh. Could I love Edward any more? *thinks* Nope, I don't think I could. I lurve Edward. The frustrating thing about reading this snippet, though, is that Midnight Sun won't be published until after the fourth book in the Twilight series. That book is slated to come out in the fall of 2008, so figure a year or two after that. I'm too impatient to wait that long! *stomps feet and generally pitches a fit* You can read the first chapter here: If you feel like tormenting yourself, that is.

Last night Mer and I had Starbucks and Coldstone for dinner. Not great for my weight loss plan, but SO yummy. Still, I was half a pound lighter this morning than yesterday morning, so it's all good.

I've been trying to work on Anniversary, but not getting very far. I've been making progress on the second chapter of my mail order bride fic, though. None of my multi-chaptered fics have been updated in over a year. That's bad, and I'm trying very hard to remedy it. Think good, writing-friendly thoughts for me, okay?

I have a date with Richard tonight. I know, I know. I'm weak and cowardly. But I'm also hungry, and I don't want the Hot Pocket in my freezer. >.>

See the awesome icon Urs found for me? *points* Do you have the Kateness? I totally do. *grins*

I've made a few icons. They're not fancy, but I thought I'd share. There are a few which are Twilight related, one which is Sookie (Southern Vampire Mysteries) related, and one random one that I don't think I've posted before.

Icons Ahoy! )

ETA: Added a few icons of random nature.

Like my Alice icon? I know, I know, her hair isn't right, but she was pale and waifish, and it has that whole red/white/black theme going on. Also, if you look carefully, I colored her eyes to show that she's not thirsty right now. *cough*

I'm getting close to the end of Eclipse, but I'm not quite done yet. Bella is still irritating me. Or, I should say she's irritating me again. I wasn't as upset with her in New Moon as some of you indicated you were. Anyway, I'll write up my thoughts after I finish the rest of this last book.

Speaking of books, I don't think I ever shared my thoughts on City of Bones. I won't go into the plot, but basically... )

I've gotten lots of mail in the last couple days! I got TWO cards and a totally cute DRABBLE from Emmie, and letters from Cyn and Gina! I've said it before and I'll say it again - my friends ROCK!

Oh, and I'm feeling better now. Thank you for all the well wishes! *reiterates bit about friends who rock*

On a sad note, I've decided to put down my handsome black kitty, Jinx. His mobility has gotten really bad due to his neurological problems. It's time. He's not in pain, and he's generally a pretty happy cat, but he doesn't really walk anymore. He pulls himself along with his front paws most of the time. He has a very hard time navigating the litter box, and often falls back out - right through his mess. He has thyroid issues. The fact that he's not sick or in pain makes it really difficult, though. I wouldn't feel as guilty if he was miserable. So, that's happening on Thursday. James is coming out to see him tomorrow. I haven't told Mer yet, but I will tonight. I will miss my little dude. He's a pretty awesome cat.

So tonight I've got to clean up a bit around the house. It's embarrassingly unchanged since James was last over - a month or two ago... I also need to do laundry.

Also, later this evening I'm having dinner with Richard. And I need to go buy cat food and milk. *sigh* I'm glad Mer's practice was cancelled!
It's 2 a.m. and I've just finished reading Twilight. While I did enjoy the book quite a lot, I really want to smack Bella. Oh, and just what I need, another jealous and possessive, super hot, fictional guy to swoon over. 'Cause I didn't have enough of those already. *sigh* I'll have to start on the next book tomorrow while I'm waiting for Mer to finish practice.

My computer is working fairly well again, if you didn't guess.

The inevitable tragedy has occurred. My company has blocked LJ. No more workday posting for me. I think I'll wear black tomorrow today.

I should probably sleep now.
