I just wanted to say Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Merry Yule, Happy Kwanzaa, or whatever holiday you may celebrate. Thank you for being my friends, my shoulders to lean on, my cheerleaders, and best friends. May your day be bright and filled with good food, good company, and good feelings.

Thank you for the cards and well-wishes. I hope you guys enjoyed them to!

I ♥ you all

I've got to get better at posting. Seriously. Life has just been crazy, and not necessarily in the fun way. :(

I shall sum up:

-New job is both really awesome and sucky. We had to fire one of our service techs for being a whiny no-show, and the new guy we got is a fucking moron. He's older than the rest of us (there are only four of us total that work in our store) and he thinks that means that he knows what to do. He talks to me like I'm a small child and he tries to correct me. Sir, I've been there for almost four months. You've been there for a week. SHUT THE FUCK UP. >:( On top of that, my manager had a miscarriage this past weekend, so I've been pulling double duty with the new guy because the OTHER guy that works with us had to fly to DC to visit his extremely ill grandmother. *SIGH*

-Two of my RL best friends have been going through a lot, so I've been laying off fandom stuff to help them through their stuff.

-Two weeks ago or so, my beloved cat Luna of 12 years passed away. It was really sudden and I was extremely distraught. She got sick and within a couple of days, she passed in the vet's office while I was making the decision to put her down. I haven't cried like that in a long, long time. I still find myself looking around the house trying to find her. What gets me is that our other cat, Mouse, does the same thing. That really breaks my heart. However, I buried her in our backyard and I go outside to visit her on occasion. I'm not ready to get another cat just yet, so now it's just Mouse.

-My roommate bailed on me and managed to fuck up a lot of shit when she did. I was really angry about it, since I did quite a bit for her and got it thrown back in my face. However, I have a new roommate, a Chinese exchange student, and she's awesome. She's an absolute sweetheart and it's been an interesting experience learning from one another. She has been spoiling Jimmie and I immensely with all of her cooking. :) And she complimented me on my use of chopsticks! :D The only thing I could do without is her annoying small dog, but even it's growing on me.

-I nearly died on the interstate a while back. My tire blew out and it sent me spinning into traffic going by me at 70-80 mph. I managed to gain control of the car and fishtail myself onto the shoulder, where I proceeded to thank everything that would listen that I didn't get hit or hit anyone else. Then I sat and shook and cried for a while before I made a desperate call to my mommy to save me. XD That was one of the single scariest things I've ever encountered.

-Have recently gotten sucked into watching Bones, which is probably my new favorite show. I love it, even if it grosses me out sometimes. XD

So, other than that, life has just been life. I miss fandom, and the other day I really thought about how much I missed talking to everyone on here. I keep saying that I'm going to be more active, but... things just keep getting in the way. I just hope nobody's forgotten about me. :P

So, gonna head to bed now. Gotta get up early for training and am dog tired for working nearly thirty hours in three days. x_x

♥ I'm glad all my friends in Virginia and DC are safe after the earthquake, and hoping that Irene doesn't slam the east coasters too hard. :( Stupid hurricanes. I'll be keeping you all who are in her path in my thoughts and prayers. *squishes you all, and the rest of her flist*
eyesofshinigami: (Noah face!)
So, I ended up failing pretty epically hard with the whole posting thing, but that's okay. Winter always kinds of messes with me, so I've been mostly lurking around.

Work has been stressful, which is to be expected considering I work retail and it was Christmas. It just seemed like people were way worse this year than previous. I don't know.

Thanks to everyone who sent me cards and little gifts *looks to [personal profile] ditch_gospel and [personal profile] sharpeslass* and all the wonderful messages I got. :) Christmas was very low-key this year for me; Jimmie and I went to my aunt's house with all my family (except my dad, who was in Arizona because my parents separated for the time being) and it was nice. We opened presents at midnight that morning with two of my best friends, which was awesome.

For Christmas I got the two Hetalia DVDs, Loveless 3 DVD, lots of money, a new purse, an awesome Beatles journal, a Beatles CD, and a couple of pairs of pajama pants. Oh, and monkey slippers and a bumper sticker, and a new phone case.

New Years was also pretty low-key for me. I went out for dinner and drinks with two of my girlfriends, and rang in the new year at home with them and Jimmie. (I got a New Year's kiss, which made me happy. :))

Thoroughly enjoyed all the [community profile] yuletide_smut fics this year! I can't wait to see who wrote what. :) I also decided (probably against my better judgment, but we'll see) that I will be participating in [community profile] valentine_smut. It's part of my goals for this year.

Which are:

1. Write more
2. Post more
3. Get a better, more enjoyable job
4. Get into graduate school
5. Take more pictures
6. Lose a bit of weight
7. Be happier and enjoy my life more.

Not too much to ask, I suppose? I figure making goals is a more reasonable concept than making resolutions, since I never stick to my resolutions. :/

As far as writing goes, the only thing I've been writing lately is Kirk/Bones stuff. XD I have a few comment fics from the flash challenge over on [community profile] jim_and_bones, which I may or may not repost here. Who knows?

Anyway, just thought I would catch up with everyone. I hope to be around more and be less lurky, but we'll see how that goes.

Happy 2011, everyone! ♥

Day 15

eyesofshinigami: (XD)
This time I didn't forget! :D I could be because I'm actually pretty excited about this one.

Day 15... and stuff )</lj-cut
eyesofshinigami: (Heh heh heh)
I'm really bad at this whole meme thing. Not to mention answering comments. :/ I'm reading and seeing entries, I promise! I just can't seem to find the time to actually thoughtfully answer entries and the like. But I still ♥ you all anyway!

So here's the catch-up again.

Moving on up... )
eyesofshinigami: (Rocketship underpants)
I've just been so busy the past couple of days and just forgot to do this meme. x_x I know, I know. I'm a bum. :P Plus, I really don't think people are all that worried about me finishing the meme anyway.

Days, days, days! )

So, in my fervent joy about being off yesterday and today, I totally forgot to post for my daily meme. SUCH A BUM. So, I figured that they're not too hard, I'll do that here.

Catching right on up... )
eyesofshinigami: (Wild Spock)
Because it looked like fun... I totally stole the meme from [personal profile] caeseria. :)

I'm a sheep. Hear me baaaaa )

Here goes!

Since it would appear there is no way to insert pix into DW yet, or at least not one that I've found, I'm posting a link to a rather hilarious photostory [profile] alieu_4ever and I did this evening.

Here it is!

However, comments here are greatly appreciated! :D

*pokes [personal profile] xcerpted and winks*

So I finally got around to adding people on my DW journal and thanks to [personal profile] rroselavy, I was able to import my journal! :D

Now that everything's over here, I may start doing the crossposting thing where it shows up on LJ. Still learning how to navigate through this place, but so far it's starting to really grow on me. ^___^

Also, several people mentioned wanting to see my Dragon*Con post here that don't use LJ anymore, so here it is. :)

Still working on getting this journal where I want it, and debating about whether to buy a paid account or not. :/ I guess I'll wibble over it some more before I do anything.

eyesofshinigami: (Made for me by the amazing soliandxpyne!)
So... I hear everybody moved over here while I was away at Dragon*Con. o_O I posted an entry about it on LJ, but I'm still not really sure I understand what's going on. (This could also be from the 200+ entries that I missed over the course of my weekend, but that's another story. ;) )

If somebody could clarify, that would be awesome.

At any rate, I don't want to lose any contact with all of the people that I know and love from over there, so I'll probably be doing the crossposting thing from now on. Most likely, when I find out why I should be as righteously outraged as everyone else is, I'll probably make the switch as well. I don't want to lose touch with anybody. ♥ I love you guys too much.

So... eventually, once I catch up with everything and get re-situated, I will be posting about the epic epicness that was my Dragon*Con weekend. Put it this way, combined with the people I went with, we have over 700 pictures. :D It was AMAZING.

Just for a happier note, you know?

Once upon a time, there was an [livejournal.com profile] a_mael and an [livejournal.com profile] eyesofshinigami, trapped together in the same house for an extended period of time. Having nothing better to do, they decided to write a fic together. This...is what happened.

Bear in mind, this is going to be an on-going collaboration...until we run of stupid ideas. So, without further ado, I bring you...this.

Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] a_mael, so don't be surprised if you see this more than once. And for those of you not on our mutual f-list...don't think for a minute that you got out of this.

Title: When Badfic Happens to Good Fandom
Authors: A'mael and Eyes of Shinigami
Pairings: 39, 58, and mentions of possible Doku/Kou
Warnings: NOT EVEN REMOTELY BRAINSAFE. Language, randomness, bad AU, suggestive themes, and rampant, rabid OOC.
Rating: No idea. Really, not a damn clue.
Summary: After having read entirely too much badfic, this is what happened. Premise is that once a year, the Sanzo-ikkou must endure a full day of OOC and bad AU to fill their quota. This year, it's up to Nii to show Kougaiji and Dokugakuji the ropes.
Disclaimer: We don't own Saiyuki. That's probably a good thing.

Our fail...let us show you it. )

I come bearing drabbles, and a special treat!

These are pretty 39/93 centric, but it's something, right? I'm really proud of the second one, just so you know.

Title: Tangled Up In You
Pairing: 93
Prompt: “93 with the prompt ‘flexible’”
For [livejournal.com profile] soliandxpyne
A/N: The first smut drabble so far. Enjoy. XD

Tangled Up In You )

And now, for the second one:

Title: The Trick is to Keep Breathing
Pairing: Sanzo/Goku implied
Prompt: This one was of my own accord. I was listening to the song and I was struck by inspiration.
For [livejournal.com profile] moshesque, for her birthday. <3 It’s a tad bit late, but I hope you like it anyway. And sorry it isn't longer, but I tried. ^_____^

The Trick is to Keep Breathing )

And for the special treat, [livejournal.com profile] empyrealfantasy wrote a mirror drabble to [livejournal.com profile] moshesque's drabble from Sanzo's POV called Barely Breathing. I was completely and utterly flattered, and you should definitely go read that too! *squees*

This post is kind of all over the place, so be forewarned. My brain has ceased higher functioning due to the sheer amount of SHIT that went on today. Was there like National Start Your Christmas Shopping Early Day or something? Holy hell. Work was insane today! Not to mention about thirty minutes into the rush the computer system decided to stop working. It was definitely a WTF kind of day.

Then, the funniest thing happened to me today in Starbucks when I went to get lunch. I got recognized from YaoiCon. o__O This girl that was standing in line behind me was giving me strange looks, until finally I turned around and asked her why she was studying me like that. The conversation went something like this:

Me: Um, hi. So...why do you keep staring at me like that?
Girl: I know you! You were the chick with the vines on her face at that anime convention!
Me: ...what?
Girl: Yeah! My friend took pictures of you and the other two chicks you were with! I didn't go, but she did and she said it was amazing and blah blah blah blah
Me: *doesn't really know what to say* That's...nice. Thank you?
Girl: *giggle* You and your friends looked awesome!
Me: *still doesn't know what to say*
Girl: Well, it was nice talking to you! *waves emphatically as she walks off*
Me: ...*thinks 'WTF?'*

All in all, it was...rather strange.

And as far as writing goes...I've finally started working on Liturgy. *falls over* I'm not sure what I think about it, but Homura is poking at my brain like there's no tomorrow. I've tried swatting at him, but it doesn't work. He's like a mosquito that just won't quit.

Well, the point of this story is, to get my writing groove going, I wrote four more of the stupid little drabbles I was writing AGES ago. While I will not say that these are excellent examples of my literary prowess, I actually kind of like them.

Drabble Set #2 )

So there you have it. *laughs* For your viewing pleasure.

And did anyone else find it hilariously ironic that Sanzo managed to win the Shojo your Mojo contest? Oh, the plot and art bunnies that are going to spawn from that. *laughs* Sanzo'll never hear the end of it, I'm sure.

Finally, since I couldn't stop myself. Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] macavitykitsune and [livejournal.com profile] s0hmam0miji:
