Becca, you feed my habits you know.

I get why you said I'd want to have my box before AWA. it'd have been nice to have that wheelie back pack to haul my loot around the dealers room, but it's prolly better I didn't or I'd have ended up exceeding my weight limit for my bags on the way home.

*pets artwork* must work on getting these framed and added to the wall!

I told you Tink was gonna live on top of my tv.

I got a spiffy new scarf, purple glitter spray, earrings that light up, a crocheted basket, a 'Whiskers on Kittens" Yankee candle and a copy of Jeff Dunham's book 'All by My Selves'.

I forgot to take a picture of it, but my brother and I continued out Purple VS Green game. He tells me greens better, and I tell him purple is better. He wrapped his gift to me in green paper, I put mine to him in a purple gift bag. All in good fun. He got me the 'Whiskers on Kittens' candle, cause it was purple, and had cats on it.

We really need to work on taking more pictures in this family. we've been slacking horribly.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Saturday I punched [ profile] tanarian101 in the arm (-10 points). In September I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). In June I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). Last Tuesday I caught a purse-snatcher who stole [ profile] luxquintessence's purse (30 points). Last Friday on a flight to Colorado Springs, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points).

Overall, I've been nice (325 points). For Christmas I deserve an Easy-Bake Oven!

Two Sunday's ago, I found this random group of what looked like bug bites, but was weird, cause of how many were clustered together, and for the time of year it is. Also, as the week went on, they acted nothing like bug bites. I called my dr this monday and got an appointment to check them out and find out what was going on.

It turns out I have Shingles.....

A very mild case, but Shingles....

Well, damn.

and here we were figuring they were probably just spider bites, and that's why they were acting so weird.

I kind of wish I'd gotten an appointment sooner, so I'd have known, and could've avoided holding the baby  till the contagious phase was over, but what's done is done. At least now I know, and that explains some of the other off things I've had going on this week and last.

In other (possibly)semi TMI newws... )

On the positive side, I've gone down almost 13lbs since my last visit just before leaving for AWA! I was 413 I'm now 401!

It was funny, I saw the GYN yesterday, and they checked all my vitals, and my weight was 402.9lbs, and my height was 5'10.5"

Today at my PCP, they checked them, and I was 401lbs, and my height was 5'9.5"....

 So I've posted a few pics to FB, just the better ones that actually took. 

I've got a small pile of photo's between my camera and my phone, but some of the ones I recall taking didn't seem to take at all, or ended up blurry, so :(

I've compiled the pics from my phone and my camera and uploaded them to a folder in my DropBox and I'm sharing the link here.

If the link doesn't work, let me know. I can share a link via email if need be.

So, I collect Hats, specifically trucker/baseball cap style hats.

I like to take one with me when I travel, but I'm having trouble deciding which one to take to AWA. I've narrowed down the options to the following choices.

I've more or less fallen out of Fic reading for a while. Nothing new the struck my fancy, or it'd already been done before. I also came into alot of physical books that occupied my attention..

I'm still not too heavy reading fic, but I still keep track of the chapter fics I was following before I fell out.

So this is how I came across this cross-over fic between Torchwood and NCIS.

The two crossing over is plausible, they're bother 'arms of the law' if you will, and I enjoy both, though I've never really tried NCIS fic. I've also never been a huge fan of cross-overs, but if the summary/first part can catch my interest I'm always willing to give a story a shot.

This fic is still ongoing. It's only 21/?? in and shows no sign of stopping anytime soon.

The turn of event that I'm not sure of right now is the fact that it seems to be running to pair Tim McGee with Gibbs. my brain still isn't entirely sure how it feels about that.

That said, this excerpt still has me rolling with laughter... )

If you'd like to check the fic out for yourself you can find it here. Legends. The author of it also writes alot of other good Torchwood fic, one in particular that I've been following Queen's Magicians AU Though you might have better luck with her Dreamwidth

XD. Not exactly, but my outfit came in, and [ profile] vexed_wench asked me for a 'fashion show' so here it is.

I totally don't keep staring at it hanging in my closet :3

Always. It's Murphy's Law.

We ordered some clothing from

It's a mash up of both Roman's and Woman Within(they have the two separate ones, apparently one being more casual, and the other  being more dressy fare.), which are all under the same company, OSP just lets you order stuff from both and save on the shipping costs.

There was a Triple 30% off coupon. Meaning 30% off your 1st, 3rd and 5th item. Good deal right.

So we ordered the stuff we wanted...

Today in moms email, a new coupon for the same deal, but instead its a Triple 40% off.....

Just, uhg, so annoying.

If our Order hadn't shipped yet, I would so have canceled it and re-ordered everything, but unfortunately it has shipped, and in fact will likely be here tomorrow, if the package tracking is anything to go by.

I'm good with it, but I swear, every time we order clothing there, a better coupon gets sent to us  within a few days thats always such a  better deal, it's annoying.

Whining aside, I really hope my outfit fits! It should, but you never know, and they only offer up to my 'size' so I can't try a larger size if it doesn't fit...

But my Dr's office has had the form since Monday(late Monday, so in their eye's really Tuesday). it's not a long form, it's only 1 page. Yes, it takes a little deep thought to look at my file and insert the info on the form, but again, it's one page. One side of one page.

At least my casework was understanding about Dr's being slack about things like forms filling out.

Hopefully now that I've put a call in and reminded them about it, maybe it'll actually get filled out sometime this century.

I have the song stuck in my head, what can I say ;)

In which I ramble about stuff... )

Now to rearrange my bookshelves. I got new manga yes, but I've also been claiming random books as we've gone through my grandmothers stuff and cleared things out that I never found a spot for.
shinelumiere: (Princess EarthShine)
And she actually slept last night.

Our conversation just now went something like this :

Mom : (holds up Post-It pad) What's this on here?

Me : (after clarification of what was written on said pad) oh, that's the hotel cost break down.

Mom : Hotel?

Me : For September. (explains breakdown again)

Mom : Oh! so it's $131 a night?

Me : .....No? (explains breakdown of hotel cost.....again)

Mom : Oh, so $131 for the whole stay, got it. (based on the before tax price, assuming it's only 3 people splitting the room)

She says she's got it, but I see myself re-explaining the brake down in the future, I really do.

So, is it just me, or does the new home page just come off as a paid advert for the ONTD! group and it's related journals? cause that's almost all I see on the "top entries" part of the page.


Why I really made a post... )

As to the subject of my post, I know what the Urban Dictionary says it refers to, but I think of it in more of the endearment form. My grandmother on my mothers side used to use it interchangeably with calling one a rascal or a chatterbox(or a 'pooper').

Part of the fun I have being a member of several yard sale/classifieds groups on FB is the people watching, just done more covertly XD.

I get where she's coming from, but her reason given could have used more thought, like saying she needs to conserve gas, or something else......

Considering that the lady wanting to meet her at the Berkshire Mall is coming from somewhere in the Wernersvill/Mohton area, to use the mall as a midway point, no matter where they meet, they'll both be in car's, not carrying the box the whole way....

But it would be rude of me to actually comment and point this out, but I can still think it...

That aside, I wouldn't mind this box of books myself, or at least to pick through it, and see if there's any I don't have and can fill in my collection with, but if the lady doesn't wanna meet at the mall, I'd have a hard time getting a ride somewhere she did want to meet, since the mall is mom's cut off point for meeting people to buy/sell.

I'm gonna watch this post, just to see where the "better" meet location is, and how far it actually is from the mall. I will laugh if it's down the street from it, I will.

So, I looked up my order for my Sailor Moon Manga's, to double check when the last one comes out, and therefore, means my order should ship....

And while I've mostly forgotten that they weren't here yet, or that I'd ordered them months ago, I found that I'm really glad I did order them then, despite my initial agitation of "owing them, but not" because of the pre-order status of about half of the books..

When I looked up the volumes that are in my order, I found that they've all gone up $1 - $3 or so, and when you multiply that by 5 books, that means I saved $5 - $12, you know, depending on the difference for each book XD

*does happy money saved dance*

Of course, there's still about 2 weeks till my order actually ships, and the price could drop again, so all my dancing may be premature, but eh, I'm not caring right now!

On a side note.....I need to figure out where they're going to fit into my shelves....gonna have to rearrange books again..

Mosquito's are the devil, always have been, always will be. There are several other bugs I feel this way about, but these are the ones driving me up a wall right now.

Sunday night, my younger brother and his family came over, we sat outside around the fire pit and roasted marshmallows and re-initiated dads fire pit for the new season. we weren't out that long, or so it felt but it was long enough for me to get 5+ bites on each leg and at least 2 or 3 on each arm.....

This, on top of being the first night with my CPAP machine might explain why I'm awake now at about 2:30 and can't fall back to sleep, and am quite cranky despite what feels like some decent sleep, despite it only being about 3-4 hours.

Speaking of my CPAP machine... )

Today mom and I went shoping. She had a coupon for Bath & Body works, and wanted to check out the pinata's that the 5 Below had. She let me have one of the mini candles she got, it's the Limoncello, which is OMFG orgasmic (to me anyway). I got all my niece's and nephews their birthday gifts too, so that's something off my personal list of things to do! I always have that tiny little moment of wishing I could get them something better, but in general, I do pretty good for what I can afford.

Mom was reminded as we were looking at lip stuff that she had something she'd grabbed for me at work and had forgotten to give me the day before...

it's a key-chain(I collect key-chains), shaped like a golf ball....

That's a lip balm XD.It even has a nice little inner lid to keep the lip balm better contained in it's half of the inside! This is a good thing, since I have a tendency to forget(avoid) my potted lip balms, since the having to apply them with a finger annoys me.

This key-chain/lip balm is a giveaway type thing from the rehab unit at the hospital my mother works at. I haven't tried it yet, but it smells really good when I open it, very vanilla-y.

I meant to share this at Easter, but it kinda got lost in the shuffle of things. This was my "big chocolate bunny" in my basket. Mom got me the phone more so cause it was purple than it was a phone. They didn't have any purple chocolate cats. The name and location of the place is written on the label in the second pic. They've got a lot of neat stuff, of what I saw of what my mom had, and hearing what my aunt got her family. We've got alot of places that do handmade/customizable chocolates and candy around here.

This was ok, it's a white chocolate, which is my least liked, but for white chocolate, it was ok. I prefer dark

I kinda wish they'd have made a thinner shell, and then just filled it with dark chocolate, than just this really thick shelled thing they did...but it was still really cute.

And to round up the post, proof that the cats can all be not only in the same room, but on the same bed, and no one will 'melt' despite what Puddums might say ;D

So, While I'm not a huge fan of cross-over fics, they're ok, if done well, and the fandoms that are crossed-over are well matched.

So, when a new fic by an author I follow showed up on my Flist, I tread in warily, despite the fact the author is a good one, because it was a cross over.

it shows promise that it's two 'parts' in, and I'm eagerly awaiting more.

If you like Torchwood, NCIS, and the idea of their worlds colliding, here you go.

The link to the first part/chapter can be found at the top of this one.

Set after the end of season/series 2 of Torchwood and after the NCIS episode titled "Bloodbath" AU from there though ;)

It's been a while since a new fic has managed to suck me in so fully....
