Well, I didn't get fired, but the other service cashier did, so I'm going to be hammered until they find someone new and I can actually train them. It's like I snapped and they immediately decided to pile on the stress to see if I'd do it again, oof.

Still! I've been cutting back on a lot of little things that have been dogging my nights, while trying to let the bigger things that won't be cut back on roll off my back a little more, I suppose time will tell how any of it affects my larger stress levels.

I need to sit down and write.

Frasier is a much better show than anyone remembers.

The news is horrifying. Kinda puts my own shit in terrible perspective, at least.

Bub WILL NOT FUCKING STOP walking back and forth across my lap SO I GUESS THAT'S IT FOR NOW.

Tag into this post with characters you're thinking of apping to the game (characters who are not currently in-game or currently reserved by someone else). It can be just a tag, a brief EP, whatever you want. You can be new to the game, or simply want to test out a fresh pup. Tag each other with these characters or those already in game, and have fun.

Also, please include the name of their canon somewhere in or on the comment or on their profile page.

Hey, I'm gonna be screening YOI tonight and tomorrow night, starting in... let's say 9pm EST? via my Rabbit room. If you're unfamiliar with Rabbit, it's a shared stream service where friends can come in and chat while watching something together. It's free to sign up and if you want to jump right in, you can log in with your facebook.

And they'll default you to a sweet little bunny icon to boot!

But what is YOI you might ask? YURI!!! on Ice is a sports anime centering the most adorably anxious figure skater and unreliable narrator, Yuuri Katsuki, training to make a comeback in the Grand Prix Finale, while heading off with a similarly named Russian rival, Yuri Plisetsky, while being coached by five time World Champion and everyone's crush, Victor Nikifoverov*. All three of these guys, plus Phichit Chulanont, Yuuri's old rink BFF have shown up in test drive, so I swear it kinda counts.

Plus, there are butts! So many butts!

So click on that glorious butt to get in!

...My Rabbit room. To get into my Rabbit room.

Something light (since we could probably all use it) to bide the time until Test Drive, a Parks and Recreation-inspired meme, as previously posted by Melly!

If your character is Eagle One, who (in Darrow) is:

  • Been There Done That
  • Currently Doing That
  • It Happened Once In A Dream
  • If I Had To Pick A Dude(/Chick)
  • Eagle Two
  • TRUE CRIMER: Bella of Hagley Wood

    On April 18, 1943, Robert Hart, Thomas Willetts, Bob Farmer, and Fred Payne went hunting for birds’ nests at Hagley Hall, the estate of Lord Cobham. The young boys explored the forest together, climbing trees in search of nests. It was getting late in the day when Bob Farmer climbed up into yet another tree and found a skull in its hollow trunk.

    Who put Bella in the Wych Elm? )

    I think I'm going to regret this...

    1.Name any character from one of the fandoms you know I'm into and I'll tell you three things from my personal canon about them.

    2. Name any story I've written, and any character in them, canon or original. I'll tell you three things about that character which didn't make it into that story.

    3. Give me the title of a story I've never written and some sort of feedback about what you liked best about it, and I will tell you at least three of the following: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

    First, thanks to everyone for the lovely comments on my last entry. I didn't have time, or reliable internet, or energy to respond to most of them but I was very happy to have them!

    The conference went well, and the journey to the US was not as horrible as it could have been. London was rainy but I had a lovely tea, and met with friends. Iceland it beautiful and I want to go back.

    Having a little trouble settling in properly - it all feels like it is still temporary, partly because I hope it will be, but I mean I haven't settled in anywhere properly yet. My parents and I are headed on a road trip to Montana to see relatives before my mom's chemo actually starts; I suppose everything will be a bit worse then.

    My boxes of possessions did arrive safely and on time, so I have them, even if I am not yet able to unpack them.

    Guess we see what happens from here. How are you?

    Rough day, possibly pointing to a rougher... life than I have been realizing? Freaked the fuck out over absolutely nothing at work today, am plainly a lot more stressed out than I thought I was? I don't know, not looking forward to going in tomorrow, it was... bad, and embarrassing, but at least now I know? I guess? Probably won't get fired as long as I don't do it again?

    Immediately reevaluating how I spend my free time and looking into making more of it. I think I've just been putting too much on myself, it keeps hitting me that I've barely played video games since the fire and I miss them, the occasional Dream Daddy weekend just isn't cutting it. Need to better balance work, general life maintenance (which is where MOST of my free time is going these days), and things I actually enjoy. Right now, I make time to read a few comics every night and that's usually it. Anything else is a special, rare treat when I've worked my ass off to clear my plate, and I thought I was doing okay, but tonight threw that notion out the window, so obviously it can't continue.

    Being the only person in the household to have a job for going on two years now isn't helping, but as long as that particular source of stress isn't going away, I've got to be making more of a concerted effort to disperse it, because what happened today really can't happen again, woof.

    Okay, that's all I've got for this week. Think I'm gonna spend some time tonight transferring my mods over to my new computer like I've been meaning to forever.

    It's early in the morning. Your character wakes up with a pounding headache* and no memory of the previous night, just a naked someone else** by the pup's side, the characters other people tag in. Tag your pups in, and play out reactions for instant, mindless hilarity/drama.***

    * If your character doesn't drink, this may just be an AWESOMENESS hangover. Make it work.
    ** With or without ring, at your discretion.
    *** You can play this out in narrative or just dialogue form or however you like, of course.
