A little something for the holidays... ^___^

The cast of this fic has decided to lead me around the mulberry bush a few times, so the next bit may be a while in coming. >_> Fortunately, this is a little longer than usual. ^___^

FIC!!! Just so's you know.... ^____^ And I shall not bore anyone with tales from the Week of "Interesting" Things. *snerkle*

I will, however, say Thank You! to the lovely art maven who corrected my abysmal art cluelessness. Any remaining cluelessness in this part is a result of me not being coherent enough to educate Duo. ^___^ (and the photos are just amazing!)

We all know it's been forever... *sigh* I am not going to make any 'do better' resolutions; they seem to be a jinx. Expect me when you see me. ^___^

Ever have the experience of a smell triggering memories? I have candles and incense going right now to try to over-power a weirdly familiar smell from my childhood - and not a particularly good one, either. Someone in my apartment complex is generating the smell of cheap hamburger mixed with stale coffee and dirty ashtrays. It reminds me of visiting certain relatives, people I was expected to 'behave' around, i.e. follow their orders and keep my mouth shut. >_< *bleh* I've caught myself looking around, expecting to be smacked by a sub-human cousin or cornered by an unfriendly dog. It's very unsettling. >_> On the other hand, it does make me happy that I no longer have any contact with "family". ^___^ Blood may be thicker than water, but it's also a bigger mess to clean up.

It's been a loooong month already. >.< I haz a bone spur. Wouldn't you just know it?! And on the bottom of my heel, no less. I can't wear my huaraches now. Doc says I should have some sneaks with skooshy soles. Right. She didn't say where I should find the money for skooshy-soled sneaks, so they won't be happening any time soon. I do have Crocs, though. They may be tacky and goofy and totally lame and unfashionable, but damn are they comfy. ^___^ Doc is not convinced, but she'll go with the Crocs until I find a pot of gold or a diamond mine under my spider plants.

So, more new Banshee; enjoy. ^___^

I have totally lost track of time this month. I would have sworn the month had barely begun and here it is half over. =P And I am jonesing for the forbidden junk food - peanut butter M&Ms and barbecue potato chips. *sigh* Add that to the headache I suddenly seem to have and I am rather peeved. Maybe if I get out tomorrow, it'll help. Buy the kid a 64-ounce soda and he'll go anywhere. ^___^

I need to add some more icons. O_o I just realized that I need Richard and I have no Richard. O_O Horrors!

I am up to my tail in bunnies, thanks to Merula. ^___^ They seem to be very small right now, but I plan on feeding them a lot.

I also have my first "dumbass!" sunburn of the season. I have sunscreen in my truck, but can I be bothered to get off my tail and retrieve it? Of course not! That would mean walking 50 feet. Each way. O_O I'd have to surrender my "idiot" badge if I did that. >_> So one knee is burned along with the same ankle and the other foot is striped in the pattern of my huaraches. And of course, my neck and shoulder resemble a tomato and my elbows are slightly pink. I really need to remember the damn parasol. I just hate most sunscreens. >.< Why do they always feel so... goopy?

Anyway, a little more of the Banshee's current project. ^___^ Enjoy.

It's Monday and I am cranky again. I'm not sure why that would ever be a surprise. ^___^

Crankiness today stems from not being able to find a pattern that I've been searching for for ages. This is a sewing pattern, Butterick to be precise. I only buy sewing patterns when the local Joann's has a special dollar/two dollar each deal and this one has eluded me for almost two years. >.< I'm fairly sure that if I want to waste some fabric and rip out some hair, I could probably kludge the things myself, but for a couple of bucks (on special) why not save the fabric and the stress? Except... every time I go looking for the damn thing, the store is out. Crumps. Not in the usual pattern-has-been-discontinued manner, but in the super-annoying sure-we-have-a-tab-in-the-drawer-but-*you'll*-never-get-one way. >_< I feel like I'm hunting some impossibly rare animal; I keep seeing the spoor, but the animal itself is waaay elusive. It's not yet extinct, but I fear it will be before I can find the bloody thing! O_o

Isn't it amazing the things that set me off? ^___^ Better to be mad about a paper sewing pattern than judging sniper posts, though. I do have the edges and the curves that my mom used for designing and I've always got paper and pencils around, so one day I will reach a point of fury and just make my own damn pattern. And then my kid will expect me to design stuff for him... O.o Oh, dear... I should probably search harder for that pattern... >_>

Knitting and crocheting designs are so much easier, and so much easier to fix! ^____^

If you haven't already scuttled past me to the fic, do so now; shoo! ^___~

How about the view from the other side? Too bad. Here it is anyway. ^____^

It's very annoying waiting for people to call you. Especially official-type people. =P Can't do anything else until they call. And I have a bad feeling that when they do call, it will be to reschedule the 'real' call. *sigh* Another entry in the column of 'shit you just have to deal with'.

I've already emptied the sink, loaded the dishwasher, scrubbed the sink, scrubbed the pans that the RM scrubbed but not quite yesterday (why, yes; I am a picky little skink), posted at S&B, gathered the laundry, convinced the cat not to eat the mailman, sent the kid off to his shrink and failed at getting the RM to go to bed, since he works tonight. >_> Oh, I've also cleared the cat toys from under the desk and retrieved the dusty brush from where the cat punted it a few days ago. It had the nerve to be sitting on top of the printer where he wanted to lay. >.< So, he moved it. Behind the damn desk. He's so 'mine!' about random flat surfaces...

I shall now take another stab at nudging the RM to bed by planting myself in the living room with the high-channel TV and working on a project whilst watching true crime shows. ^___^ That usually moves him.

And... you know... more Banshee. ^___^

Too wombatted to manage a rant this year. *sigh* Pretty damn sad when you can't remember the stuff that bugs the hell out of you. O.o Maybe later. I will play with my new yarn; that always makes me smile. ^___^ And I will also contemplate appliqué.

Tired, tired, tired... =_= *zzzzzzzzzzzz...*

This may turn out to be my xmas entry, RL being what it is right now. =_= Sorry about that.

You've probably noticed that my 'reply to comments' time is pretty hit and miss right now; sorry about that, too. I have some stuff going on that makes my ability to concentrate... well... kind of disappear at the worst moments. I do as much as I can during moments of calm, but they're spotty at best. Hopefully, this problem will end once the 'issues' (more like a lifetime subscription) have ended. I do read all comments and I do answer as soon as I can catch a thought or two. ^___^

It's raining here, so my knees and my back are screaming bloody murder at me. I have to go lie down again. =p

Ahhhh...! It's good when you survive another week. ^___^

A little something ahead of the #2 worst holiday of the year. ^___^ Yeah, I confess; I hate "family" holidays. They usually wind up as mine fields or target ranges. Blood is not only thicker than water; it's harder to get rid of. >.< If you're walking into one of those tomorrow, good luck. I will be stuffing myself at the local buffet and then shopping. ^___^

I'm just curled up here in the foil wrapper nest, perusing books on the mind (and how it's not necessarily under your control), economics and the biography of one of the greatest people of my generation. Okay, so he was a pre-war baby; that just means he didn't belong to the yuppies. ^___^ Watching some truly egregious horror on TV... Being reminded of why I thought Santino was a douche... Wishing I could sleep... Wondering if I have a can of refried beans to make tostados for dinner... Putting off chumming the refrigerator because I'm afraid of being bitten... >_> Probably should hold off on that until after Halloween; let the evil that is month-old dairy products go back to sleep... O.o And yarn... ^___^ Playing with yarn. We'll see eventually what it arranges itself into. ^___^ Got a hankering for a moebius. *snerk!*

I've discovered that even with my ubiquitous lists, I still can't remember shit. Lists don't help when you lose them. O.O Going into the season of "oooh! shiny!" I am not hopeful. >_>

Forward motion is not always progress, but the good old days usually weren't. Wear purple; it makes the homophobes nuts.


And onward to the Banshee. Enjoy. ^___^

My icon depicts my current opinion of social services. >_< However, I shall ride forth to do battle again tomorrow. *sigh*

In the meantime, Banshee. ^___^

Wow! Nothing like being able to pay the rent to get a lizard all revved up! ^____^ Woo-hoo!

And therefore... Banshee! ^_____^

Something of relative substance ahead of the weekend. ^____^ My darling dragonet (he has informed me that only girls get the "te" on the end of that word. *snork!) has the weekend off and has commanded entertainment. Given my state of poverty, that will consist of walking around the farmer's market and possibly Walmart. Yeah, we're real party animals here. ^____^

Good weekend, y'all. Don't drink or drug and drive. ^___~

I've been working on some commissions lately (not all of us do art or fic for money... ^__~) hoping to get the logjam in my head loosened up some (since yarning is my way of meditating) and this part popped out in the space of a few hours. I like this; it gives me hope of being able to bang out the rest of this whole part before xmas. *snicker*

Tense day today. I took my old kitty to be washed, disinfected, shaved and de-fleaed. I was really worried about how she'd take it, but the groomer was super nice and kitty-girl now has a buzz cut even shorter than mommy's. ^___^ The groomer said she was a perfect angel. O.o Got rid of all the mats and the ridiculous undercoat. I think she likes it. She doesn't flinch when I go to pet her, so that's a positive thing. Of course, the Tekko Tora Neko is bent waaaaay out of shape. ^___^ But the big guy is being very Trowa-ish. I'd always wondered what color her skin was... It's calico, just like her fur. *snicker*

^____^
