Updates on things!

The house unfucking continues - I discovered our bedroom closet has a floor!  Also I ran out of hangers before I ran out of clothes. 

I love my panda lady in Mists of Pandaria so much that I don't want to play her, because I'll get all attached to her and then lose her when the beta ends.  I tried copying over my 85s to work on leveling them, but I can't find any quests anywhere and the new talent system is really, really confusing.  I know it's not supposed to be, but it is.  

And the ending of the Ireland trip recap!

Bunratty, Kilkenny, and back to Dublin )

And this would have been posted hours ago, but my brother had four hours' worth of frustration with our parents and speculation about Song of Ice and Fire plot to get out of his system.

Birthday visit to Little Tokyo was expensively fruitful. Little Tokyo loot haul. )

Unfortunately, this weekend was the heirloom tomato festival at a farm stand near my house, which is unfortunate because I just remembered to check today and it rained all day at what, for Los Angeles, amounts to a downpour.  Should have thought to look on Friday.  I haz a sad. 

I should finish up the Ireland post, but maybe tomorrow - I've finally broken through jetlag-induced writer's block and I've been ficcing all day.

I'm now 33.  If I were to have a kid by the age my mother had me, I should be pregnant already.

Husband and I are going to Little Tokyo!  Without the traditional Irish breakfast of fried eggs, bacon, sausage, toast with real butter, and black and white pudding if you feel like eating them, my cholesterol levels have dipped dangerously low, and ramen should fix that up nicely.

Things going on:

Two weeks from now we will be in Ireland!  If past history with extended travel is any indication, I will obsessively document the whole journey in photos and a paper journal, then, on my return, post one jet-lagged "I will post about the trip later" update and never actually succeed in doing so.  Maybe I'll break my streak this time!  We will be traveling with an actual doctor, so I have hopes we'll manage the jet lag reasonably well, though her advice currently has us using over-the-counter melatonin.

As of my fourth week of my internship, it still doesn't make me want to die!  That's more than I can say about all my previous non-library jobs!  The time I worked in accounting I wanted to die after the very first day! 

I just completed a fic that came out in Word to 48k words.  The last time I wrote something anywhere near that long it took me seven years. To be fair, those years included: the completion of my undergraduate degree, two substantial moves,one of those across country, three jobs, four residences, three computers, the beginning of my relationship with my now-husband, moving in with him, our engagement, and the beginning of my graduate degree.  BUT STILL, this fic took like four percent of that time.  And OMG OMG I FINISHED A THING!

Things I have been doing:

- Full-body immersion in Tiger & Bunny fandom.  Hello, kinkmeme, you are CLINICALLY INSANE yet I can't stop writing for you.

- Wondering what it would take to get a Final Fantasy kinkmeme going.

- Trying to title my Yuletide fic.  HOW IS THIS THE HARD PART.

- Trying not to eat all the gingerbread cookie dough before I can bake it.

- Forgetting to eat anything BUT gingerbread cookie dough.  

- Failing to go to the post office.

- Freezing to death.  It's not really that cold outside (except by Southern California standards: quoth the husband, "It was frigid!  Fifty degrees!"), but it's not a whole lot warmer inside because my husband doesn't believe thermostats are meant to be adjusted. 

- Reading Texts from Stern BildThis one made me laugh so hard I nearly sprained something.  It helps if you know everybody's civilian names.
liri: (YAY!)
Three out of fourteen done for my thesis-equivalent!  :D :D :D

Adulthood.  Sometimes it means you get to eat cake for breakfast, and other times it means you have to fish a dead rat out of the pool. 

Sleep apnea stuff )

Also, I'm freezing.  I think this is linked to the sleepiness, though it could be linked to the fact that we are having, by California standards, a chilly day.  It's even raining!  My mother-in-law is probably wearing a parka indoors. 

I'm trying to keep myself awake by playing FF4 on the DS, which is kind of an odd experience, because it's exactly like the original - same dungeon designs, very likely the same script in Japanese - while also being completely remade and re-translated.  The dungeons are the same, but they're 3D; the lines are the same, but they don't sound like Google Translate anymore.  (Though "spoony bard" was, of course, preserved.)

Edit: WTF Yang's blond now?  Seriously?

I guess it hasn't been that long since my most recent post, but if not for earthquakes it would have been a very long time since my last coherent post about anything. ....that seems to imply my earthquake posts are coherent, which is not really the case.

It sucks, because I just want to post things as they pop into my head, and yet when it's been over four months since I posted anything that wasn't either "THE GROUND IS ACTUALLY MOVING AROUND AT THIS VERY MOMENT" or random grunting noises, I feel like I need to explain myself in some fashion.

Cut for school rambling. )

Other things that are happening or have happened, and didn't make it to LJ:
