So today in Canada is Family Day, a fairly new holiday in which people are meant to spend time with their families (hence the original sounding name, lol).

Thing is I live about 4 hours from ANY family, and everything is closed for the holiday. Soooo, I'm having a little 'Me Day', getting some stuff done I've wanted to finish FOREVER. I've just finished a coat of paint on my living/dining room, and in between coats I plan on:

~ Baking a cake (since my mom baked apple pie on the weekend and I can't get any. D:)
~ Going through all my bills and tax crap
~ Posting some IDW TMNT scans at [community profile] scans_daily since I've been SO BAD at keeping up with that.
~ Finishing up a Tracks/Raoul fanart tonight
~ TRYING to write something.

Will it all be done? STAY TUNED!


...Oh, BTW. I happen to have a DreamWidth account, for anyone interested; [personal profile] rebecky_mo. It'll be mostly the same stuff that I post here on LJ, but if anyone on my F-list is interested in freinding me there, feel free to (and recommend me to any communities I don't know about there)

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

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(

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

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.

*goes off to draw to feel better*

I just had a dream that someone had taken my sketchbook, ripped out some pages from it, and scored/scratched up the rest of it with like a key or something. Needless to say, I was horrified.

The funny thing is...I think it was supposed to be a veteran or something. And it's Rememberance Day here. D:

*makes sure to leave sketchbook at home today, juuuuuust in case*

I really should know better than to watch Gordon Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares while I'm eating. Ew.

EW.

EW!

Turns out that challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] tf_rare_pairing isn't for five fics, but one fic with five segments/vignettes to it with the five firsts/four firsts, one last.

HAHAHA WHOOPS.

Good thing I didn't start yet. xD;

Still gonna do it though, and try for a couple more fan stuff too this month (since December is sketchy with all the holiday joy and all).

Dammit, I know alcohol bugs my stomach. I KNOW this.

I should have stopped at one cooler. Hell, I was GOING to stop at one cooler.

But my softball teammate had got up and bought me another before I could catch him, plus another chip for one, and they were $5 each...

We should be able to use one tag more than once. Using 'stupidity' once is an understatement on this one.

*groans*

...how much younger most of the guys at my job are than me. Of course, that doesn't always excuse immaturity, and boy, can they be immature asses at times.

Explanation time.

I was working Wednesday night, and one of my co-workers has a habit of asking questions that I call 'brain breakers'. It's normally impolite and/or meant to instigate ("ie: Do you think X is fat?"), as no matter what you answer, it's twisted into making you feel like you're being rude/wrong. Y'know, kinda in that Hannibal Lector way, minus the cannibalism and slurping. Normally I answer, but walk away when he's gets into obviously word twisting. Normally it makes me a little uncomfortable, but nothing that makes me want to react.

The question of the night on Wednesday?



"Do you think (enter co-worker's name here) is gay?"

From what I gleaned of the conversation before he asked me, he (or someone else) may or may not have asked this co-worker that to his face earlier. In the middle of his shift, when he can't just leave.



WHUT. Really?

It's been a long time since I wanted to punch a co-worker. And since I consider myself a pacifist, that takes a lot to make me want to hit someone.

Instead, all I said was "I think that it doesn't matter, and is none of our business."

Afterwards, what I realized what I SHOULD have said was "I think the question 'do you think X is gay?' has messed with more lives than anyone will ever know, and that you need to pick another topic for your jollies." I tend to think of this stuff after the fact, not during the moment.

While not a member of the LGBT community, this really offended me as a human being; I have both longtime friends and family who are LGBT, and I've heard stories about how trapped that very damn question had made them feel at more than one time in their lives.

Hell, even my straight friends have had problems after someone asking this question to/about them. If they're asked and they say no the 'wrong way', they're lying. If they say yes...

Rumors are so damn easy to start, even after high school.

UGH. Just...UGH.
