Oh, LJ...

So obviously comment notifications are WAY behind again, since I just received one of my anon-comments that I posted 2 hours ago. Wonderful. =_=

...Anon Memes frustrate the HELL out of me sometimes.

Don't mind me, just need a moment to seethe here?

Won't mention WHICH Meme brought this on, but those who track the thread in question might know the one I mean. Basically, Anon puts out a prompt; it's an interesting kink, and the prompt is fairly specific as to what Anon wants.

Another Anon quickly says they're going to fill the request as an art-fill, and gets it done within a few days. IMO, the pairing is actually depicted as in-character as the kink allows, is funny while still bring hot, got a good bit of what was asked for in, and was done quickly. Others who checked it out agreed. OP!Anon responds to the fill and thanks Fill!Anon, even though it 'wasn't exactly what they wanted, and was a little hard to take seriously'. Whether they intended it that way or not, it came off a little ungrateful.

Now, I've put out prompts in various anon memes, including this one in question, and I've had fills that took a different route than I expected, but I thoroughly enjoyed nonetheless and thanked them for the work they did. I've also had tons of my prompts left to collect dust among the hundreds of others ones, that I would have loved ANY kind of fill for, be it Crack or Angst or even a just a paragraph. It also makes me even more hesitant to do Art-fills for prompts that actually can be DONE as art, as so many prompts tend to be detail/lead-up heavy (and everyone EXPECTS fic, dammit all).

Anon, if you didn't quite mean it the way you did, someone took hours of their time to make something especially for you, while others aren't getting a damn thing; be polite and thank them properly. If you wanted one of the prolific Anon!Authors to take it up, they still could have afterwards, (though you may have shot yourself in the foot with your response.)

And if you want something filled and exactly like your vision, do what I did, and sit down and write it yourself.

...The Internet. It's Serious Business. B(

Damn oral hygiene crap...

For those that don't know, (which is probably all of you, LOL) I hate going to the dentist. Like, a lot.

Oh, it's not that I've had bad experiences or anything with them; my dentists have always been decent guys and all. And it's not even that I'm prone to cavities, 90% of my check-ups have good results.

It's just that over 20-ish years, I've gone through having 1) palate expanders, 2) retainers, and 3) braces, alongside the typical cleanings and cavity fillings. I still have braces behind my bottom front teeth that I despise.

Add in the fact that my gumline has a habit of bleeding when I get checked/cleaned, I have some really fricken sensitive teeth, and temporomandibular disorder in one side of my jaw (we're going to try a night guard for that. Yippee.) that makes it SUCK to keep my mouth open for an hour straight...

Yeah, I'm really over people poking inside my mouth.

Oh well, one cavity free checkup down this year, and another 4.5 months until my next visit. Yay. :X

I don't normally do this, but...

Just venting over work. Pay no attention unless you want to know why I want to make my boss bend over, just so I can shove my boxcutter up his ass sideways.

Venting in 3...2...1... )

Boss, I know you don't even want to go on this fully paid, company-wide vacation to Cuba you're going on next week (WHAT.), but I'll take a pay cut if you agree to just...just STAY down there. We can manage just freaking fine without you and your fiancee around every day; I do it everyday, and I know the more sane Managers of the other departments can too.

Stupid little annoying things

I've had this niggling headache since yesterday, and was nightsweating all last night. Ick. Due to my new orthotics messing with my body? IDK.

Food Network's sound keeps fritzing in and out today. And of course it's ONLY on my favorite channel.

Can't find my inking pens to finish my Raoul/Tracks and Young Justice sketches. And I hate posting pencil stuff... Found them.

My computer screen keeps freezing up randomly lately, and I keep having to force a restart on it. No viruses detected, so it's something to do with the tech (which wouldn't surprise me, it has water damage). Backed up all my new art/story files to a spare hard drive, just in case.

Stupid piddly things, but still. :/


I swear, if I have to buy another laptop only 3 years after buying this one...Y_Y

THIS JUST IN! MegaUpload taken down!

"Popular file-sharing website, Megaupload, has been shut down by the federal authorities. Oh, and it turns out its CEO is a music producer. Quite a famous one.

Before we get to the good part, here's the skinny on the takedown. The indictment, which was just unsealed today, accuses Megaupload of breaking anti-piracy laws and claims its pirate-enabling ways have cost copyright holders more than $500 million in lost revenue. According to reports, charges have been laid against seven Megaupload employees - four of which are already in custody in New Zealand. The Department of Justice reckons this is "among the largest criminal copyright cases ever brought by the United States," and listed the coming charges as "racketeering conspiracy, conspiring to commit copyright infringement, conspiring to commit money laundering and two substantive counts of criminal copyright infringement."

Megaupload's side projects, Megavideo, Megapix, Megabox, and yes, even Megaporn have all been taken down as well.

Now, you might recall that Megaupload was having some legal troubles with universal over a bizzare hip-hop video praising the Megupload service. Now the video makes a bit more sense as it turns out it was produced by Megaupload's CEO, who is none other than multi-million selling hip-hop producer Swizz Beatz. Yes, that Swizz Beatz. The one married to Alicia Keys."

Hacker group Anonymous is raging and raging hard. They've hit more than a few websites in retaliation to this.

A moment of silence is needed here, perhaps?

One step forward, something something something...

Have today off, and after trying out/getting my orthopedic inserts (wow, THAT feels weird), I buckled down cleaned my bathroom, and decided to clean my oven for the first time since moving in. Since I have an apartment inspection in a week, I figured it may be a good idea.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be, considering it's been 2+ years without a cleaning. Got it all done, replaced the grates and added a liner (to prevent further piles of ash on the floor of the oven, hahaha), and removed the newspaper the product suggests to lay down... Clearly I didn't lay enough down, because on one side of the paper border, was HUNDREDS of little brown spray-spot stains on my vinyl floor tiles. Tried to scrub it off, with no luck.

Enter me completely freaking out. I just cleaned this floor last weekend, and the stains were VERY noticeable.

So I just spent the last 20 minutes scrubbing my floor like a madwoman, using Comet and praying. Thankfully, I think I got 90% of it off, and the rest blends in with the floor design.

THIS? IS WHY I DON'T CLEAN, PEOPLE. It just leads to more cleaning that didn't need to be done before I started cleaning. >_<;

'Tis the season for dead grass and bare trees.

With ten days left until Christmas, there isn't a lick of snow on the ground here or in my hometown. In fact, it's been raining all day long. The weather report for the next 14 days isn't very promising either.

All I want for Christmas is a White Christmas. ;_;

...I think I want to unthink this one.

So I was over at Fandom_Secrets, reading today's batch. Among them was one for the new Ai No Kusabi OVA's (that are, supposedly, finally coming out next year). Someone posted a couple screens of the originals (which are still gorgeous) with Iason and Riki.

And all I see now is Android!Tracks and Raoul in them. And yeah, I'm good with that. All Riki would need is longer hair, and Iason is more than 'perfect'-looking enough to be Tracks. It's hot.

But the idea of Track and Raoul going through the entire plot of AnK in the same way...the whole 'pet' thing, the resentments/reluctant emotions, the ending...Both of them have enough crap to deal with in my headcanon, I don't like them to be the sources of said crap to each other. I have a bad case of the fandom sads now. D:

Finishing shortbread cookies can wait until tomorrow. I need some happy, diabetes-inducing R/T to make me feel better.

*goes to find sketchbook and turn on her Tracks/Raoul playlist*

Sometimes I wonder why I bother making things pretty...

So apparently my apartment was painted in oil paint. I know because after putting 3 coats of ACRYLIC paint over top, it's peeling like freaking crazy as I remove the tape. >_<

I'm going to touch it up tomorrow, and it is what it is. Even if it looks a little spotty/crappy/ugly in the light. I am NOT buying another can of $40 paint to fix two walls that are peeling anyway.

*NOT. HAPPY.*
