I know I have a fair number of cat lovers on my flist. [livejournal.com profile] anomilygrace needs help finding a good home for her kitty. I can vow that she's a sweet and pretty cat. So please, if you think you might be able to help out or know someone who might or just anything, I'd be grateful.

Hey guys, I have created a new AIM account, because I'm using about four right now, and it's getting confusing. There's so many accounts on my old one of people who just never sign in anymore, or people who I haven't talked to in so many years that I'm not sure who they are.

So anyway. If you're looking for me, I'm now on SheGoesOn (Same as my twitter account as stupid people have stolen woodface in some places. Seriously, the nerve.) So add me, omg!

Today is a pretty good day. It did start off all wrong, though. I had this weirdass dream that kind of stuck with me. I was on my honeymoon and our tall was this huge building with a view of Central Park. They'd arranged a suite for us on the roof (there were like little condos on there and it was hard to tell where Central Park began and where the garden on the roof did). For some weirdass reason my family was present at the suite. I'm going with it that they were making sure I didn't run off as the marriage was kind of arranged. To top it off, the hotel was hunted and management would kill off anyone staying at the top floor. There was one window I kept trying to close the curtains to, but somehow they wouldn't stay closed and you'd see the ghosts of another couple running around and being chased down by something.

Yeah, I have no idea. Somehow things got less creepy when I started making out with the reluctant husband... Seriously, no clue. No wonder I was fucking tired when I woke up. (Though the whole being up too late might have something to do with that as well.)

Aaaaaaaaaanyway. Things turned up after that. I got called into a meeting with my direct boss, his boss and someone from HR to tell me that I'm up for promotion. There will be an interview and possibly some tests (they couldn't tell me for sure either), but they recommended me and my chances are pretty good. Normally, unless I seriously stuff things up, it should turn out okay. I'm nervous about jinxing, though. OMG! This would mean more money, bigger bonuses and possible a car...

I need to get my driver's license, but this could considerably help with the loan for the house. I hope. More moneys, please!

Despite a sense of disappointment after finishing Dragon Age 2, I find myself in the mood to read lots and lots of Hawke/Isabela fic. Lady Hawke, of course, because let's face it; beardy won't ever make a good champion.

Now if only there were a lot of fic out there. *sighs* I have cravings, fandom. Why do you not cater to them?

ETA: If anyone's got a prompt for that, feel free to throw it at me. Maybe I'll get some divine inspiration.

Dear brain,

Stop finding all the characters you come across shiny and interesting. Yes, Sarah Shahi would make a damn awesome PB for Ashley Williams (Mass Effect). Yes, the username you came up with is still free. This is not a sign. Next week you'll have your Dragon Age and you can stop thinking about shiny characters.

Or you can try writing that Mass Effect fic that seems to be slowly bubbling in your head. Nothing beats fraternisation it seems. No matter what fandom it is in.

But damn, you're right. She'd be an awesome Ash.

Sigh. Anyone know good Ash/Shepard fic? I don't care if Shepard is male or female. I want it alllllll.

Does Ultraviolet by U2 work as a Crews/Reese song or am I crazy?

Somehow my search for Jadzia/Julian fic led me to reading Crews/Reese. I miss you, show.

The last few weeks have been exhausting. Work is utterly insane and I don't know which way is up anymore. I think that means I need to make drowning noises towards the boss because if this keeps on, not only will my sanity be destroyed but this project is going to fail in epic proportions.

Most of the past week has been spent getting worked up and exhausted at home, and only having the energy to do some reading. Which has led without a fault to me falling asleep at 20:00 through to 23:00 and crawling into bed to sleep for real about midnight. I have turned into an utter wuss. Granted, the mistake is the whole lying down to read thing, but it's the only thing my brain seems to be capable of. That and that whole hospital game on lj. Damn you, lj.

My brain is stuck somewhere between The Lost Hero and the Nantucket series at the moment. The sequels don't have enough of my girl slash in it. Well, it's there, but not as much as I would like it to be, dammit. Oh girl slash. My search for a pb for Alston has led me towards Skin, Rokia Traoré and Ajuma Nasenyana. Which is me just rambling since none of you read the books. *shakes fist at you all*

And between all that I'm looking into getting a loan for the house. Which my parents are luckily helping me with or I would have had to waste so much vacation days for every single appointment. Granted, that makes me still spoiled and all that, but money affairs make me flail from here to eternity. *siiiiiiiiigh*

Dear internets,

This weekend you have failed me. You have failed me spectacularly. Here I am reading Island in the sea of time by S.M. Stirling and I'm squeeing my head off over the slash (girl slash, yes. You know boy slash bored me something fierce). This pairing? Hot. Seriously, seriously hot. Black lesbian Coast Guard captain, jaded with life and the world and the native young girl who gets whumped, enslaved and then offered to said captain as a gift. Come on, there should be heaps and heaps of fic out there. So much blanks to fill in.

And what do I find? Nothing. Absolutely, nothing. Zip. Nada. Noppes.

I am disappointed. So very disappointed.

A girl slash ficless Jara

Look at me, I'm still alive. Not that I have anything particularly interesting to say which is my main problem it would seem when it comes to posting to this. I keep thinking I should do better, but I can't seem to actually manage it. *sighs*

Work is still work. Sometimes way too busy, sometimes way too slow. I don't have a whole lot of actual working days left this year. Next week I have 4 days of course (LARPing, in a manner) and then in December I have a scary ass guerilla course coming up. From 9:00-21:00. Hold me.

After that? Vacation for the rest of the week. Tickets to North Carolina are booked to visit my sister. Tickets for a five day minute trip to Boulder are booked as well. I just need to get off my ass and find a hotel. Oops?

Fandom High is eating my brain a bit more again recently. I have two active students at the moment who are both fun and easy to play. Well okay, so Faramir gets all wordy and needs some thought but for a Tolkien character he comes a lot more easily to me than I had ever dared to dream. Yes yes, I'm playing a Tolkien character. I still think he isn't an awesome writer but somewhere there in RotK he won me over. I'm now reading my way through The Silmarillion and it's a whole lot of fun to see how everything came to be.

I actually have been writing fic when I went through my Inception craze. They're three long fics and need to get betaed, but oh boy. How does this all go again?

And other than that? Games. I have been moving from one game to the other lately. Dragon Age: Origins, Starcraft II, Mass Effect, Mass Effect II and now I have The Witcher in my possession. I'm trying to hold off on starting that, though, and restarted a DA:O campaign because I am weak and got the Ultimate Edition. To my surprise, Leliana's Song is more interesting than the Morrigan DLC.

And now I'll stop boring you all. Really, isn't it much better if I remain uninteresting and shut up? If not, I have been more active on twitter (SheGoesOn) and tumblr (in case you don't mind getting spammed with LotR, FMA, Richard Armitage and pretty places).

First off, yes I know there is a huge irony posting this on my RL livejournal. I understand that perfectly. I also understand that I'm not doing this in an open forum created to invite wank. I'm not hiding behind anonymity.

What the hell is the point of dragging a personal RP issue out into anon comms simply to create wank? I don't care how many people agree with your issues, it still is a low and coward way to air them. Talk to friends, talk to players. Hell, talk to the person you have an issue with. But what exactly does anyone gain by going into a public comm and dragging your issues out in front of people seeking wank?

Please, explain this to me. I don't get it. I only understand that when I notice Fandom High's dirty laundry getting aired outside of the game's boundaries, that I feel deeply ashamed of the players who take part in it and seem to enjoy it. I stop caring if what is said is true or not. If you're mad at your housemate, you don't go stand outside on the street and hand out fliers about why you're pissed with them. (I hope.)

I assure you, I've had many issues with the game before. Issues that I've discussed with my friends when I simply needed to vent, or with the player when it became a real issue. I've not handled it always well, but never have I felt any need to drag it out in public. That's easy, that's cheap. It drags the game down and it insults its players. Stop making me ashamed of something I love.

I ordered my new pc today. Hopefully my old one won't feel all neglected, because it's been a good little pc. Never had any trouble with it and it still runs smoothly, but the newest games are starting to get out of my league.

So the new baby will have:
- Antec P183 case
- 650W power supply
- i7 860 processor
- RAM: 4GB 1333Mhz DDR3
- Asus P7P55D Motherboard
- Asus Ati Radeon HD5870 graphic card
- Samsung DVD/RW
- Intel SSD 80GB
- HD Caviar 500GB 32MB cache

I don't know how to start this post. It's a hard thing to write up and a hard thing to ask. It feels inappropriate, but this is a wonderful person's life so I'm going to risk it. I wrote about Tashi a little while ago and her struggle continues still. So...

If you want to help out a person who deserves a break and needs any help they can get by to fight breast cancer... I know there's a lot of people out there who do need help, but...

Please, take a moment to read Tashi's story and to consider if you could help.

Thank you.
