kkscatnip: Fire Candy (trying to find my happy place)
Wanted to post this separately from the APW stuff just in case someone ends up finding/linking to that, heh heh heh.

1) Went and saw Sucker Punch. My immediate reaction upon seeing it was to rage, but upon thinking and discussing it more with people, I think that this movie brings a very valuable element to the table but other people have already said this far more eloquently than I am able to.

2) Sweat lodge on Saturday. This is the e-mail I sent [livejournal.com profile] tensergorn when I got home:

Read more... )

I felt a bit better on Sunday when I went over there to help take down the lodge. I brought Puffin with me, since I'm going to be house-sitting their house for ten days at the end of May and Puffin will be coming with me.

Oh. My. God. Puffin had so much fun. She was constantly running around, smelling things, and like a bouncy, happy sort of running around. It was soooo cute! And she made friends with the pony, Bolt, who is very human-shy. They touched noses, and it was just the cutest sight ever, this stocky pony stretching out his neck and puffin stretching out her neck and their noses just barely touching.

I stayed out in the field for probably an hour just writing, and Puffin just ran around the whole time-- a lot of the time near Bolt too, which made me smile. I felt very good by the time I left.

3) Em and I attended the Whippersnappers Atlanta Meet & Greet at Manuel's Tavern on Thursday. Abby, Noel, and Art were all there so it was just wonderful to get to see all of them again. I ended up getting uhhh pretty trashed. I think the Triple Sec was what did me in, in the end.

I completely forgot the name of the girl who ended up giving me a scalp/neck/shoulder massage, (she had very nice tits, I must confess, and nice thighs as well) but all I can remember from the end of the night is that it felt like so many people were touching me and it was just such an awesome feeling. I didn't feel embarrassed or ashamed to be the center of attention for once, which was another boost for me.

(Also, I got to kiss both Noel and Art. Fsdlklsadsk I love kissing people; words cannot express this adequately.)

On a related note,

4) I will be attending Frolicon. I've made arrangements for Puffin; I have a pre-reg; Em and I will either find a room with some floor space and crash there or sleep in the car. We'll bring blankets and shit again either way, heh heh heh.

If you enjoy dark, erotic fiction and/or post-apocalyptic stories and/or fiction featuring dysfunctional relationships, I highly suggest checking out Freaky Fountain's first two anthologies. (Yes, there's trigger warnings on the preview PDFs, if you are the sort who is wary of those type things!) These guys are small press, so the cover price isn't very steep at all-- less than ten bucks for both anthologies.

I don't have a story in either anthology but I've bought them both and I'm kind of inching through Bad Romance. Mostly the inching because I'm manic and fuck manic, you know, can't pay attention to anything but boy howdy I'm trying anyway. I'll probably put up reviews for all of the separate stories when I finish both anthologies, too, I'm that fucking excited about this shit.

A few cool things:

Tuneage - a blog for anyone who likes a wide variety of music. Hoshit, these people got everything and they're normally (for me) spot-on about the quality of the music too.

Elbo.ws - Music blogs out the wazoo, but they vary in quality but they normally have downloadable content so that's a plus.

Blog @ Sinthetik.com - just a lot of cool stuff, though I will warn that it's not always safe for work and the NSFW stuff is not behind cuts, so keep that in mind when approaching this site. I really like the fact that a lot of the pictures this person posts are women that are bigger. It helps to remind me that yes, overweight girls are pretty too.

[livejournal.com profile] everydayprompts - A comm I started because I couldn't find a community that was only prompts. No people posting crap, just prompts, pure and simple. Yay~!

In other news, I wish DW had LJ's last-fm thing, because I really like that.

1) [livejournal.com profile] narroch and I found a really cool club last night! It's called the Jungle, and it's both gay and for people our age. And they really played a wide variety of music, too, which made me quite happy.

We're probably going back again tonight, because the host told us that there will be all kinds of entertainers from all over the city there + no cover charge. Whee!

As a sort of aside, I'd never gone really out dancing before the Peach party at Pride this year, and it's just... I love it. All those cliches that people write about-- it's just so fucking true, in a lot of ways, and it makes me want to write it but I really oughtn't because it's soooo over done. Maybe I'll find some way to write it at a later point, that makes it less cliché.

And I just have so much goddamn energy when I dance, too. So, so, so much fun!

2) Starting to really arrange things for the trip to LA in January. I'll be there for my birthday, and [livejournal.com profile] tensergorn is going to throw me a RAG birthday party, since there are a good many RAG readers in the LA area. We've been having tons of fun coming up with RAG-related party games :3

3) Soooo behind with NaNo. But I'll catch up, it's just that I've been Doing Stuff so, yeah. I guess a bit of being behindness is allowed in that case, heh.

4) Been on a Vocaloid binge lately. Anyone have any Kagamine-centric recs? I'll take other recs too, but so far I really like Kagamine voices best.

Also, I discovered this the other day and am fucking amazed. I mean, that sort of thing isn't without precedent-- look at Gorillaz-- but look! 3D! And it actually looks real! And the animation is absolutely stellar! It's just so neat to me.

The Secrets of Scientology. Shit like this makes me want to go back to protesting those fuckheads :|

brb, finding about when the next raid is. I'm totally going to drag [livejournal.com profile] narroch along with me if there's a raid, too, because THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS DO. (No, really, all the ones I went to were tons of fun. At least until they weren't.)

In other news my sickness is progressing from fever to a certain shortness of breath. I really fucking hope this isn't bronchitis setting in, although all evidence points to the idea that yeah, it is. A change in the tone of my coughs + shortness of breath + lack of fever... If I'm still sick on Monday (which is looking very likely at this point) I'm getting Joyce to take me to Mercy Care.

1) Connecting with female characters in geek television. Very interesting, thought-provoking article. Must-read for anyone who considers themselves a feminist. Even if you're not familiar with the examples (I'm not) it still resonates; you can probably come up with examples of your own. (For me, mine is Marina vs. Saji in Gundam 00. Same peaceful sentiment, but intolerable when coming from Marina and endearing when coming from Saji the haro sex helped I'm sure.)

2) Totally going to do the VOICE RECORDING MEME. Ask me to say or answer anything, and I'll record it all and post my fabulous voice. (Meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] piledriver)

3) I came up with the best poem ever for Lizardmen.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Your cock is splendid
Fuck my throat til I'm blue

I have no excuse, really. It's fucking perfect and I wouldn't change a thing. :D

1) [personal profile] dingsi went and created an alphabetical list of people on the love meme. Go, love them! And if you can't find someone who deserves some love: create a thread! ♥

2) Still privately being gleeful over yesterday, hahaha.

I actually went and tracked down in chat logs when we first talked (May 26th) and when I confessed the crush. It was exactly two months to the day from crush confession to relationship. It seemed like a lot longer than that, somehow.

3) Watching BSG, whoo. I'm up to S3 E7, which is pretty good considering there's like twenty episodes in a season and the episodes are an hour long. It was painful watching some of the reactions from the events of New Caprica, tbh, but the characters are recovering so that makes me squeeful again.

4) Am currently working on a story called Lizardmen in Space, which is actually being a lot of fun to write. It's turning out hilariously, too, which is good! I'm just worried it'll be a little too light-hearted for an erotica anthology, hahaha. But the characters are fun! Koit with his gay panic and Atlas with his FUCK YOU, BUDDY. I love them!

5) I've fucked with my Dreamwidth layout and I think I finally got it where I want it. The green was nice, but I'm really a purpley sort of gal.

6) I'm not going to Yaoi-con. After thinking about it and talking about it with various people, I came to the conclusion that trying to go this year would just be too stressful for too little return. I'll try again next year, when I can plan ahead and not have to worry about omgomg everything and stretch my finances so damned thin.

It's sucky, but I feel better having made the decision.
kkscatnip: Death Note (glad you agree with me)
1) An awesome person made an Anonymous Love Meme! Go, read the threads, show people love. (My thread is here, heh heh.)

2) The going-to-Yaoi-con thing is looking more and more likely, if for no other reason than I really really want to go because I've never been and [livejournal.com profile] tensergorn will be there and [livejournal.com profile] narroch will be there and man I wanna go so effing bad.

3) Have spent the last two days in the company of [livejournal.com profile] narroch, burning through S1 of Gundam 00 and Oofuri. And An Education and BBC's Sherlock! Probably some other stuff too that I'm somehow forgetting about but-- it's been highly fabulous to have an IRL friend to share all of this stuff with! I haven't had anyone like this since I moved away from Boston, and it's amazing how much it brightens my outlook on Atlanta in general.

4) OH MY GOD CUDDLING. It's been so long since I've been able to cuddle with people in a completely non-sexual manner (hi [personal profile] dhara, [personal profile] britomart_is) and it was so wonderful and comfortable. I am really such a touch-needing person, I thrive on this sort of thing and it makes me feel fluffy inside and stuff. Looking forward to further cuddling!

5) Normal Pride (as opposed to Six Flags Pride) is next weekend and I am totally going. Totally. Maybe I'll even be able to meet more anime-minded folk! (One can hope.)
