|As some of you may know, my darling jou is the accomplished whateverist/artist behind the comic Roadsong - Allan Gross writes, she draws, we enjoy. :D |
The last issue has been out for a few days now! It might be worth mentioning that this volume too has a fanart gallery attached - and yours truly is in it as well. :P ...no, the sketch beside is not the one that ended up in RS3, that's just the preliminary sketch ;D I'm positive I have the file with the finished drawing somewhere in my HD, but it might take some digging to find. :P I could add a link to it here once I find it, if you want/are curious?
I haven't seen the finished result yet, but I hope I'll have my own copy in my hands soon enough (though the postal customs might want to disagree with me on that. They usually do) - and, haha, I'm squirming in embarrassment already. Getting ahead with work, so I am. And I just want to read it! <3333 It's going to be the last one, after all :(
(And speaking of comic store, I think I might nip down to mine today. It doesn't carry original titles - no Roadsong waiting for me there :P - but maybe some issues of The Gunslinger came back in store. Something else I want in my hands! ♥)
(Also, just for the record? I love my mood theme so damn much. I've been editing the moods in my last entries, and oh boy Barbara is a STAR.)
( Random: the Mash Game! )
Speaking of, yup, Dad's still at the hospital - but he should be coming back soon, maybe today already. :) In the end, he had to have his cholecyst removed (last Monday) - even after fifteen days of antibiotics, it was still pretty inflamed, and beginning to bother the liver. Which is why the operation lasted longer than expected, about a couple hours. I was beginning to get worried, yep. :P But all seems to be well now, and guess what, I'm pretty glad of that. :D
And OH BOY but I feel like I've been out of touch with you for months. :( Theer are some of you I miss something fiery. Honestly, it's a crime D: Usually having the internets at home helps with that, too, but there you go. ;P I am so, so behind with comments. Sorry about that! I'll try to catch up, I swear. :( I'd wanted to comment on all the yuletart entries too! Guess what, that didn't happen either. And I'm afraid there's the gift for me in the bunch of the ones I haven't even seen. Whoops.
I'll do my best to do it all! :o Bear with me until then. ;P
(For the record, am still without Antediluvian Tales. Now this is SAD.)
( For the time-wasting bit, a quiz :P )

NOW, other meme - and this is a mixture of at least three others I've seen around the LJ-land. Let's see if I can phrase it in a way that might make sense. Also, yes I'm lame at titles.
Song Association Meme! Comment here and I'll tell you which song (a song, at least) that I associate with you. And if you've got any song you associate with me, do tell me. :D (This last part was originally called the "Dumb Song Meme". In case it helps. You know.)
Of course, it might also help if we have actually talked at some point in life.
But it's not really necessary, I guess.
Oh, you're such a sweet, kind, lovely girl. I hope you will have the best of
Okay. Am I the only one to find slightly ironic, not to say a contradiction in terms, that in order to bring people to save energy (which is a good and sensible thing to do), they're having lots of concerts all around the place? Because, I mean, big concerts are kind of an energy-hoover. Oh well.
( And anyway, since I've broached the subject anyway, saving up is made of - )
...no, honestly. I do the HP Fake Spoiler Meme Of Doom and what do I get?
| My Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom is: |
Sirius Black is killed by Remus Lupin after doing battle with an evil dragon
Get your Harry Potter Spoiler of Doom
ETA: Okay. The latest news on the yahoo.it portal is that JKR cried for Harry Potter. I HOPE someone notify them of some other big news right now, because I'm coming very short of covering half the screen with my hand, the next time I have to check my yahoo email. God, there's so very little else that gets on my nerves like something of that kind...
You are... 6% unique
(blame, for example, your interest in young gay cooks)
and 11% herdlike
(partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy sleeping).
When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers.
Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.
Your overall weirdness is: 45(The average level of weirdness is: 27.
You are weirder than 87% of other LJers.)
Find out what your weirdness level is!
You got any idea just how brilliant I find the fact that it picked "young gay cooks"* as an example? Though I'm kind of pouty at being called conventional, I suppose. ;P
*_ If you're curious - and I hope you are - young gay cooks refers to this. :3
ETA: OH MY GOD, NI, PLEASE DO YOURS!
Also, because I am that bored:
...and which lesser Harry Potter character are you?
Congrats! You're Gryffindor fourth-year Dean Thomas!
At first glance, there might not be too much to set you apart from the rest. On closer examination, however, it's easy to see that you're laid back, artistic, and as loyal as any Hufflepuff. Best of all, your biggest argument in three years has been about why the people in your posters don't move .
(Your moment of glory - so far, at least - comes any time Gryffindor House needs some notable decorations.)
Bwahahaha... and now I'm back to my not-moving sources of whining. :P
(Also, I told myself, I'll listen to The View From The Afternoon just once and then I'll shut the thing down, because I'm twice as slow when I'm doing things AND listening to music.
Technically I haven't been listening to anything else. I just hit the "back" button everytime the song comes to a close.)
Just one more thing, partly because it's a personal curiosity, partly because I can post the damn things and I never do, and partly because when I watched it with three other friends, I was the only one who loved it instead of grumbling and complaining:
|You Are a Caramel Crunch Donut|
You're a complex creature, and you're guilty of complicating things for fun.
You've been known to sit around pondering the meaning of life...
Or at times, pondering the meaning of your doughnut.
To frost or not to frost? To fill or not to fill? These are your eternal questions.
( And a meme which result I really like and in which NO, I did NOT cheat. I'm not that obsessive. Really. )
I got the monkey. I got the ruddy monkey. (Here - in case it changes. :P)
Have at it! ;)
Heh. I've started working on another one of my little projects - which is to say that I got myself the cheapest t-shirt I could find. Yup, I'm going to have something written on it. Well, the story is, I'm always been quite the agreeable type - ready to try out whatever, okay with most places, most people, etc etc etc. One of my token phrases is - you know when you're out with friends and you're tossing ideas around on where to go? Well, if the question is "where do we want to go tonight?", over the years I've earned the copyright on the answer "oh, for me it's the same". (And it is. There are a few places (or a few people) that I really can't stand, but er, I think I can safely that everybody in a ten-mile radius knows about them.) So, yeah, I'm going to have it written on the shirt, and then I'll so go see a few friends. :P Oh, I so want to see the faces they'll make.
Not to be random or anything, but yesterday I suddenly realized that this fall it's going to be ten years since the big earthquake here. Woah. It feels kind of weird.
And I have finally found THE RIGHT POEM TO POST!
I Have a Terrible Cold
I have a terrible cold,
And everyone knows how terrible colds
Alter the whole system of the universe,
Set us against life,
And make even metaphysics sneeze.
I have wasted the whole day blowing my nose.
My head is aching vaguely.
Sad condition for a minor poet!
Today I am really and truly a minor poet.
What I was in old days was a wish; it's gone.
Goodbye for ever, queen of fairies!
Your wings were made of sun, and I am walking here.
I shan't get well unless I go and lie down on my bed.
I never was well except lying down on the Universe.
Excusez un peu ... What a terrible cold! ... it's
I need truth and aspirin.
'Selected Poems' translated from Fernando Pessoa by J.Griffin.
...now don't tell me you were expecting something different.
( Quizzie: How evil am I? )
Also, because I love it way too much not to share, and I still thank Ni for linking me to it - ( John Barrowman sings Doctor Who theme! )
...the funny thing is that I haven't been offline for that long, but it kind of feels like it. Oh well. On other accounts, at this moment in time? You can't believe the love I have for my friends. Well, some of my friends. I am actually thinking about some of my friends offline, but it does apply to some of my friends online as well, so, yes, I could have spared you this last sentence.
And since I am in a do-nothing mood:
( The Get-To-Know-You (as in YOU) meme! )
An advice? Never ever start listening to either the second or the third while you're getting ready to go out. I was a quarter of hour late because of #3 alone. :P
Ouff... I've finally getting close to the end, with the website. I'm coding the last iframe as we speak. (And, well, I haven't even touched yet the commission page. Freud, anyone?) By Monday/Tuesday I should be able to "publish" it, I think. If I haven't fucked something up without even realizing it - which wouldn't really be that strange, come to think of it...
I'm also thinking about posting an entry about last Friday's party... I've got the photos I have saved on the pc, it's mostly a matter of typing the captions. I'm afraid it won't be today, though - I'm heading out in a hour and tonight I'm not going to be home for long. ^^;
Random entry? Why of course. ( And while we're here already, a meme too! )
It's not really going to change much anytime soon, though, so I don't know how much the apology might be worth. But still.
(I'm also in a pretty happy mood.)
Oh, the icon - last Monday I saw Lost, the episode 02.45. You know, when Locke sees the videotape that goes "'lo Locke, we've just been having a bit of friendly fun"? Laughed a bit.
( Also, Random Seduction Meme! )
Free to shoot me.
Completely changing subject - I'm reading The Kite Runner. Holy shit. That is really the first comment to it that comes to mind. For once you can believe what the jacket review says - provocative, painfully honest, and I don't remember what else they said.
Also, my mental Peter (Pettigrew, I mean) is coming to resemble a lot the main character, Amir.
Man am I loving that book - but I can't read too much of it at once, empathizing is pretty easy. And... they're not nice things.
( Which puppy am I? )
Couple of memes from yours truly - am sure I left out some more comments on the second one, but am quite reluctant to go, reread and see what they were. Bear with me.
Much love to you all. Might be back with an actual update. Sooner or later. Maybe.
Also, am done with the tutoring and have been paid. Am v. v. tempted to spend about a third of it on the liquor series. And I probably wouldn't regret it one bit, considering that otherwise I would waste it slowly but surely in other, much less satisfying ways.
( My Interests Collage! )
So I took one of these online handwriting tests. And this shit is just so, so funny. Not to mention not reliable in the slightest.
( Handwriting Wizard! )
ETA: OO THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH. :D :D :D
On the other hand, there's this magazine about music&movies&stuff that has celebrated its first year of life with a nearly free issue, with "2000 songs you should download". (and "100 songs you can download for free", and I think I'll post the links. If I can.)
Well, I looked at them all. NOT ONE song of the Manics. That's just so wrong.
That is, they do mention La Tristesse Durera, but not its original version. The Chemical Brothers remix. (Which I didn't know even existed.)
Oh, and hahaha I remembered an hour ago that tomorrow it's my dad's bday. Again, oh hahahaha. *headdesK* Out of it, I am. Whatever "it" is.
Hot hot! I am Curry Flavoured.
I have a spicy personality. If you can take the heat, you'll love me, if not, I'll probably make you cry. I am not for the faint-hearted. What Flavour Are You?
