I created this account during an exodus from LJ a while ago, but I never bothered to set anything up. LJ is changing everyone's friends lists to a style that has mandatory infinite scrolling, takes away some of the graphics, and is hard on the eyes. Infinite scrolling at Tumblr has crashed my browser more than once, so no thank you.

It'll take me a while to learn the terminology and coding and stuff, but I should be up to speed in relatively short order. DW doesn't seem that different from LJ.

Telemarketer: Hi, let me speak to {Mom}.

Me: *annoyed at the way Telemarketer phrased it* May I suggest you ask if you can talk to her instead of telling me what to do?

Telemarketer: Can I speak to {Mom}, please?

Me: [chirpily] She isn't here. May I take a message?

Telemarketer: No ... er, this is the Republican Party --

Me: [grumbling] Shit.

Telemarketer: *hangs up*

I am equal opportunity; if the Democrats had any reason to call, I'd be just as rude. I know it isn't Telemarketer's fault, and I'm a little sorry I took my mood out on her, but I do hope she'll take my advice on how to address people from now on.

I need an icon of Shirley Bennett saying, "The Lord is testing me."

They're nothing fancy at all, but I got a new pair of tights in the mail today and wanted to try them on to see how they fit. Next thing I knew, I had the camera in my hand. Pardon the dusty mirror. )

Guys? If midnight GMT on 1 October is the Exchange deadline, does that mean we have half a day left or a day and a half left? Is it the midnight at the beginning of the day or the midnight at the end of the day?

Yes, I am that ditzy. And not just because it's past one in the morning. (Though you knew that already.)

Bold the ones you have and use at least once a year, italicize the ones you have and don't use, strike through the ones you have had but got rid of.

I wonder how many pasta machines, breadmakers, juicers, blenders, deep fat fryers, egg boilers, melon ballers, sandwich makers, pastry brushes, cheese boards, cheese knives, electric woks, miniature salad spinners, griddle pans, meat thermometers, jam funnels, filleting knives, egg poachers, cake stands, garlic crushers, martini glasses, tea strainers, bamboo steamers, pizza stones, coffee grinders, milk frothers, piping bags, banana stands, fluted pastry wheels, tagine dishes, conical strainers, rice cookers, steam cookers, pressure cookers, slow cookers, spaetzle makers, cookie presses, gravy strainers, double boilers (bains marie), sukiyaki stoves, ice cream makers, fondue sets, healthy-grills, home smokers, tempura sets, tortilla presses, electric whisks, cherry stoners, sugar thermometers, food processors, bacon presses, bacon slicers, mouli mills, cake testers, pestle-and-mortars, and sets of kebab skewers languish dustily at the back of the nation's cupboards.

I had to look up what some of these things were. Others I can't imagine living without. *pets Pampered Chef garlic press* My kitchen is large for a one-bedroom flat, but there isn't much room for stuff in it, so I keep the equipment to a minimum.

I'm Diamond shaped.

Your stunning silhouette has very many beautiful assets. Your waist is fuller than your bust and hips and your impeccably proportionate face, neck, and bust, balanced lower legs and arms accentuate your gorgeous frame.

Tips on What to Wear:

* Show off your neckline with scoop, cowl, sweetheart and v-neck tops. Also, draw the eye upward by adding necklaces and scarves.
* Elongate your mid-section by wearing tops with faux-wrap draped silhouettes that are fitted around your bust and skim over your tummy.
* Wear flat-front pants that are narrow, bootleg or straight-leg, capris and leggings; show off your legs with high slits, straight, pencil, tiered, tulip and trumpet skirts.

Today's List of Happiness is rather short:

1. Seriously Fun Research for the SSHG Exchange is paying off, and I'm having a good time working on the final draft.

2. My haircut is a little short in places, but it's out of my face and off my neck, so I'm happy.

3. I always like my job, but I like it best when there are extra projects to work on, and I have a biggish project now.

4. I have a new favorite stop-motion animation movie: Coraline. I rented the DVD last week, and while it isn't identical to the book, it is closer than many book-to-film adaptations. The artists did some beautiful work.

So here's a list of happiness:

1. All three plays I saw this weekend were fantastic, and I got hugs from half the cast members of Othello because I've worked with them, they've seen me act, or I've seen them act.

2. I shall have lunch and do a little clothes shopping with coworker EB at some point this week. I enjoy her company, though I don't often get to finish my sentences.

3. I started the final draft of my Exchange project and sent my midway progress report to the mods yesterday, so that's something big that is no longer on my to do list. And the midway deadline lit a fire under my ass, so I realistically hope that I will finish and turn it in before the due date for the first time ever. (I've been late a lot and on time the rest, but never early.)

4. The pendulum of my creative interest swings from art to writing and back periodically. I've been doing art (both two-dimensional and embroidery) for several months, but I feel the urge to write creeping in again. I'm glad; I have some Sherlock WIPs I'd like to finish and post.

5. Zombies counter a Westboro Baptist protest. Countering bigotry with humor: YES.

I might overuse this icon, but it is far and away the most appropriate one tonight, because Michael Dorn is fit as fuck. He first walked out on that stage in a well-fitted suit and tie, and my jaw was in my lap. Then later, he walked out in a waistcoat, shirt, and trousers, and I could not take my eyes off him. There were quite a few beautiful men in the cast of As You Like It tonight -- hooray for the Charles vs. Orlando wrestling scene -- but when Dorn was on stage, I had a hard time looking anywhere else.

The play was well acted, though a little hard to follow because a dozen actors filled over twenty roles, but it was a lot of fun. The venue is an outdoor theater in a Japanese garden on the campus of a huge Veterans Administration facility in Los Angeles, and there were no bad seats. [ profile] ronfaure wisely chose a seat right next to one of the walkways where the actors entered and exited, so we had a lovely view of everything.

It's almost one in the morning, so I'm off to bed. Good night, all.

This is "You've Been Crying."

Pic Youve Been Crying shrunk

I participated under the name [ profile] rampaging_panda at [ profile] holmestice. [ profile] sc010f was my recipient, so I chose her Mycroft/Lestrade fic All That You Build, All That You Break to illustrate. A larger version, picture details, and disclaimer are available at DeviantArt here.

I also received a lovely fic this round: Singularity. (Though I don't know who wrote it yet; the mods are having trouble with coding, so they said we could go ahead and act like the Big Reveal had happened. I'll edit as soon as I have a name so I know who to thank properly.) Very nice astronomy metaphor, and it's John-centric, which makes me think the author knows me. Or else I just lucked out!

I always wanted to be Wonder Woman, but I knew that was unlikely. Being an intelligent geek is cool, though!

1. This morning, I survived my first Hatha yoga class and then made it to work after instead of going back to bed like I wanted.

2. Frankenstein was brilliant. I saw each version once last year, so there was stuff I remembered to look for, and there were some details about the performances that I caught this time around. [ profile] ronfaure is excellent company, and we ended up at a diner in Sunset Beach after the broadcast for a couple of hours. Last night was Ben!Creature, so next week is Jonny!Creature.

3. Father's Day party at the Jimbos' was very nice despite the fact that Boo-Girl was in Vegas with her father.

4. I have discovered Trader Joe's bagged popcorn with salt and olive oil. Nom nom nom. :D

5. Started a new embroidery project Saturday. This is like the Fourth Doctor's scarf bookmark that I finished last week: it isn't for anyone in particular, and it has no deadline. It's just something to do over the next several months when I'm bored and have nothing else to work on.

My Monday is slightly brightened, and I am content. *takes a catnap on the break room sofa*

Fourth Doctor Bookmark
by ~Keladry-Lupin on deviantART

This is something I've been working on for the last several months, and I've finally put on the last stitch and washed and pressed it. I just liked the scarf, so I found a knitting pattern for it online, used the software I got online to build the chart, and started stitching in my spare time. I have plans to make a bookmark for myself at some point (either Jeeves or the Ninth Doctor), but I have a queue of four right now, so I won't be working on that any time soon.

Disclaimers (this is fanart, after all) and specific information (floss colors, etc.) are at DA.

Dear friends for whom I've made similar projects: if/when it's convenient, would you please take a photo or scan what I've sent to you and e-mail me the image so I can catalog them? I lost all my scans of past projects when my laptop died, and the data can't be retrieved.

Post edited because of reasons.

I've said or thought "Never again" more times in the last three years than I did in the 35 years before that. I'd like to think it means I've been adventurous rather than idiotic over those three years, but I'm not quite sure.
