I'm Just Having A Good Day

These are the tweets I received earlier this evening from the winner of the pillows:

"I just came home and received your pillows! I'm so overwhelmed- they are absolutely gorgeous! They far exceed my expectations!"
"Thank you thank you thank you for all your hard work. I will proudly display them at home, and will most certainly write a review" (I had asked that she leave a review on FGB for the 2010 auction that I hope to participate in)
"I was only expecting pillow CASES too, but you've made actual cushions, and the designs are so gorgeous."

And apparently I'm cute (in that adorable, 'I wanna pinch your cheeks way.') This pretty much was the cherry on top of my ice-cream-sundae-of-a-day.

I'm so glad that I could participate. Now I just need to finish those quilts. I'm starting the tacking and most of the fabric has been purchased. I've also mapped out a general design for both.

Hopefully I get just as enthusiastic reactions from the other auction winners. :)

So thank you to drscully (for confidentiality reasons I'll refrain from using her name) for your enthusiasm.

And thank you to the lovely ladies at my local fabric store for tolerating my madness.

Cold Feet

As in, I have cold feet. And I had cold feet in the doctors office this morning because I was NEKKID. And it was awful.

The speculum is not my friend. It was kinda painful. And very violating.

The only thing I found worse,

the breast exam.

And you're probably ask yourself, 'Self, what could be worse than having your hoohah stretched by a shiny metal contraption.' Well, to you I say, I had to look my doctor in the eye while she felt me up. I think my face caught fire. I have never blushed so hard in my life.

My mom told me it was part of "womanhood," it comes with the territory.

My sister doesn't want to ever grow up.

I just want to go crawl in a hole and hide. It was more embarrassing than anything else.

On top of that,

I have to be in court on Friday and I'm behind on homework.

At least I haven't gone blind yet.

(Has anyone else noticed how much I've been whining lately?)

I'mma Be A Hot Mess

There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside of you. -Maya Angelou

Woman knew what she was talking about.

I just completed Fields on Fire, over 4,000 words in 3 days. I feel...kind of accomplished.

Now I've just got to finish...everything else. And my homework. Hot damn.

What I'm currently working on:



Hypoc. and Sin.

Two other one-shots that have yet to be titled.

I'm a writing fool, yo.

Now go read Fields on Fire. I like seeing that counter go up.

Oh. And here's the banner I made for FoF:

Simple enough. haha.

Pillow Fight!

So, as some of you are aware, I offered up my services to The Fandom Gives Back '09. I auctioned off a Queen quilt, a Twin quilt, as well as the the 3-piece pillow set. To make this short and sweet, the pillow set has been finished for a few weeks, however, I'm just now able to send them out to the lucky winner, drscully.

Here are a few pictures:

Ta da!

Now I just need to finish the quilts :)

ZOMG The Giggle

What does the "z" stand for in zomg? Anyone?

That's beside the point.

I'm a dork. A mega-humongous-scary-giant-dork. It's sad. And hilarious. At the same time. Awesome.

I stutter when I'm nervous. Hence, the mega-dork.

Hanging out with Becca again was really fun. I've missed it lots. Only problem, I cannot hold a conversation to save my life. There's something wrong with me. I think there's only so many times I can go, "haha," before she bitch slaps me. Fo' realz. And still, I wish we did it more.

I wonder how Brie's going to handle me at ComicCon...'re not big on conversation, right? Comfortable silences? :)


I saw Percy Jackson and the Olympians:The Lightning Thief twice in one day.

I've officially seen it more times than I've seen New Moon, but we're not going to touch on that mess.

Logan Lerman is beautiful. As are his eyes.

The CGI was pretty awesome.

My favorite scene, hands down (and those of you who have talked to me today will not be surprised), the Lotus Blossom scene with THE GIGGLE. It's crazy adorable. *le sigh*

The only thing I took issue with (as I've mentioned on Twitter) is that I figured out who the lightening thief was in advance. And it didn't even really matter. It was just that good (because any other movie I would have raged all over that).

It was dorky and cute and I loved it. The end.

Well, on that subject anyway.

Moving on, this new medication is kicking my ass. It's what's been making me physically sick (think that spew session on the side of 395, and you can STILL see it) and gives me wicked awful vertigo. My veins feel like they're full of helium. I don't like it.

The thing is, I was on this before and I became addicted to it. Completely involuntary mind you. As soon as I noticed I stopped it (which was not a bright idea because you're supposed to be weaned off ). I had to go through a whole slew of withdrawal symptoms. It's nasty. I don't recommend it. I've had the same problem with sleeping pills. Apparently, I'm a glutton for punishment.

My new Med. Management decided it would be different if I tried an ODT (orally disintegrating tablet) instead of swallowing a pill (because I have issues with swallowing certain medications) and a much lower dose.

I have NEVER had nausea this bad on ANY medication.

Like I said, it's kicking my ass.

I'm calling her on Monday to have my medication switched.
