...considering I missed the first two classes, I picked up relatively fast on the movements (it's like choreographed stage fighting at this level, which I'm pretty good at) and I'm really enjoying it.

BTW, Karate is replacing Freshman English cause I PASSED THE EXAM! :DDD


And I'm still fighting what the doctor classified as an upper respiratory infection - like a bad head cold where your head feels like brinks, throat burns, and you use a box of tissues a day.. I've had this since.. a day or two after the hurricane... missed work Tuesday and wound up with a fever, got that managed today and went to classes (was at school 8am-7pm, easily my longest day) but felt really bleh, and I'm working tomorrow. 9am-7pm. Pray it does not go longer than that or I may die. Still have to have some homework done for Friday's history quiz and I don't feel up to it and I don't wanna rush. :/

For anyone wondering about hurricane Irene: I'd *just* finished watching Doctor Who when the power went out - and stayed out for about 4 1/2 days. Those were interesting times. But at least I could distract myself by WTF-ing over the latest episode!

The other thing distracting me lately is http://www.thecapitol.pn/ which looks like the beginnings of an epic ARG for The Hunger Games movie, due in 2012. AAAH HOLY CRAP THE SYMBOL.
Two days ago it was nothing but fuzzy, pixely distortion, then it was a little clearer yesterday, and now it's perfect. There was some Morse code bleeping in the background but it seems to have gone, and the 'Acquiring Signal' in bottom left is usually where the Twitter login is. I'll check it tomorrow and see what's up. ARGs are SUPER SUPER FUN when done right, and I participated in the Dollhouse ARG like.. forever years ago between seasons 1 and 2, via Twitter and game-centric sites and it was an absolute blast. 'Hacking' into Rossum, trying to help this agent out.. I still hear from my fellow CTPs every so often and I look forward to one where I can be even more involved.


Ew, must medicate and sleep. Thankfully my temperature's not creeping up again.

In exactly a week from right now, I'll be at the bus stop for NYC, and leaving in a week plus two hours. <33

Random: I painted my toenails this nice shiny purple b/c it seemed like the best course of action.

[livejournal.com profile] harbek and I say hi to you from New York! *is totally speaking for her* WITH A SPECIAL PIC. :D




okay, so the line by the time we got there was already around like two blocks and we knew we wouldn't make it into the theatre with the cast and the Q&A and everything, so we decided not to sit in line and hope for the best after all. But we were walking back to the front and taking pictures of cosplays and figurines and such, and then a big car comes up with tons of doughnuts in the trunk, and then OH HEY MAIN CAST BRINGING THEM TO US. So after the initial mob swarm, we got in and got this pic, and I touched Karen Gillan's shoulder. I think Arthur Darvill disappeared somewhere around the girl with the Roman centurion helmet and sign saying "I'd wait 2000 years for Arthur Darvill".

BUT OMG WORTH IT. And I'll get to see it in two weeks anyways!
DUDE LIKE MY FIRST DAY HERE IS BARELY HALF OVER YET. NOTHING CAN TOP THIS I SWEAR.
shinydinosaur: (doctor who: explosion)
OKAY SO LAWL. I ordered my bus tickets online and they were $20 each. And then the site was like OHEY, ROUNDTRIP? $10 OFF! So I just got a roundtrip to NYC for $30. DUDE. WHAT IS THIS. :DDDD

In about 2 1/2 hours I'm leaving for the bus stop, and then the bus leaves right around midnight tonight. Spending the two hours waiting by knitting and listening to the last two Eighth Doctor season two Lucie audios. Planning on sleeping the 6-7 hours on the bus so I'll be well-rested. The last thing I need is another 20 hour day running off four hours of sleep and then texting things like "I was sitting down a lot except for when I wasn't" (trufax). Espeeciially considering Monday night is the NYC Doctor Who s6 premiere! I WILL BE IN THE *SAME PLACE* WITH STEPHEN MOFFAT AND MATT SMITH AND KAREN GILLAN AND ALEX KINGSTON AND ARTHUR DARVILL. AAAAAAH!

Also, yanno, my original intent of seeing Born Yesterday with RSL. And being with awesome people youknowhoyouaaare. <333333

Staying in New York until Thursday, getting home that night, and then after Friday I won't be home again until like the 19th-20th. Yeaaaaaaah. :D

*finishes packing*
shinydinosaur: (dollhouse: brilliant idea)
First off, my Farmer's Market table was a rather good success this morning! I stood at my area for five hours and sold two things (and fixing a bracelet that's good-as-sold), but hey, $20 is $20. I was the only table there with knits and jewelry; everyone else was food or garden-related. I had many many complements, one of my favorites being that I'm a "young knitter", and several great ideas relayed to me in order to adapt what they thought was already something great into something even better.

OH LOOK. MY STORE. PIMPAGE. AND LOADS NEW JEWELRY.

Even if you fun f-listers do nothing but comment as to what stuff you like/dislike, that would make me happy. Things not listed yet: Firefly-inspired mp3/phone/anything carrier, same item but in camouflage, (I had another different one but I soooold it~) epic earrings I made of a gorgeous necklace that broke (and some scarf stuff that you can see in that second linked pic like the 8ft "electric snake" scarf that I adore).

And it seems like most of my April is totally packed with crazy and fun things!

April 3-8: making alpaca-related things; visiting recruiter; making TJ watch either more Doctor Who or Chess in Concert; probably streaking some temporary pink in my hair; prepping for NYC (and technically the other trip as well); getting my babysitting money I've waited for for like a month to help with both.
April 9: Alpaca Fiesta Festival! Sell awesome knitted things. Finish packing.
April 10-11: Head up to NYC on bus - see Born Yesterday at the very least, I HAVE to go eat at the Life Cafe this time, and especially chill/geek out with/glomp [livejournal.com profile] harbek and meet other awesome people I am told. :DDDD
April 14ish: Go home and wash like everything I just brought home.
April 15: Go see friend's play, spend night at boyfriend's house.
April 16-19: Get up EARLY, 6+ hr roadtrip to bf's future college and current place of my best friend <33; more roadtripping to Tennessee, then home again.
April 20-21: Get home, sleep for a month. /end
April 23: WAKE UP LONG ENOUGH TO WATCH DOCTOR WHO AND FREAK OUT.


TJ suggested to me that we bring Les Mis and "you can finally introduce me to Chess!" on our roadtrip, lawl.

Things I *will* be bringing:
- Doctor Who audios (specifically with Lucie, and hunt down the ones with the Word Lord)
- Looots of music. Probably burning CDs for the second trip to save iPod battery.
- Knitting to do (if I'm not sick of it by then, hah): RENT scarf, ipod cases, whatever.
- Camera! Journal! Ways to be creative and express my thoughts!
- Probably my external harddrive for the second trip at least, for chilling out and catching the bf up on Doctor Who (or trying to) during some downtime. Plan is to go through the specials (minus Planet of the Dead, boring) and charge through the epic of season five.

...and it hasn't even started. @___@ WHAT. UP.

Ramblerambleramble.

Cut because I'm being nice to my flist late at night )

In the fandom world, Lucie Miller ([livejournal.com profile] ohgodcrocodiles) has settled in nicely at [livejournal.com profile] brb_gallifrey and even met some new friends (and a sort-of adversary) and I'm super super excited. It's fun and addicting and totally keeps me up late at night.

Speaking of which. It's almost 1am and I have to get up at 7. Nnnnngh. @_____@

TL;DR: Don't expect to see me around the internet until like Monday. Except then I'll probably be sleeping or knitting to make up for the lost time on both. xD;

OH YEAH I FORGOT TO MENTION. MADAMA BUTTERFLY WAS EPIC. My first opera, and it's the one that's playing when the Doctor flatlines on the operating table in the TVM. I'm such a dork. And 'cause I promised some people, here's a pic.

...even if it did drop to like -9 or whatever that night, with the wind.

part the second )
part the third. )

I WANNA GO BACK LIKE OMG. /end
shinydinosaur: (Fivey: marauder)
 Man, my life is busy as heck lately.

So here's a quick update before I get my 5-6 hours of sleep. (EDIT: Quick? Lawl, took me the better part of half an hour to write all this. So I'm categorizing, cutting, and chronological-izing to save you all the trouble of trying to decipher my jumbled thoughts.
