It was one of those mornings. Everything went wrong. Dog was obnoxious as hell, then had the nerve to look so sad when I yelled at her for the eleven-hundredth time to get out from under my bed. I couldn't find the shirt I wanted to wear -- and this was a shirt that I always "found" when looking for ANYTHING ELSE UNDER THE STUPID SUN, and now that I want that damn shirt, it's gone. I think I got angry at it the last time I "found" it, and tossed it somewhere. Now I'm wearing a different shirt, not horrible, but I was almost late for work because I refused to give up.
Cat 1 never bothers me (he old, I let him do whatever the hell he wants. He deserves it), but Cat 2 was a disaster as she usually is. When I turned around she was chewing on my leather boot I left out to wear. GOZER GROW UP ALREADY (she's like, less than three months old XDD I have a while). She really isn't awful, I actually find her funny as hell (not the boot chewing, but pretty much everything else), but I am so totally a cat person. Cats can get away murder and I'll think it's adorable. Dogs look at me wrong and I'm all DAMMIT MUT!! Learn to behave!! Horrible, because I do love dogs....but almost 17 years of owning cats (omg my baby is almost 17!!) have spoiled me.
I had no time to make lunch, and when I left the house it was 33° outside. Fuh? What happened to fall?? Oh right I live in the STL and we don't do things like fall and spring....we have winter (death), a few days that might less cold but will probably be raining or tornadoing, summer (more death) and if we're lucky, one or two days of fallish weather, then it's back to winter (death). Fall is my most favorite time of the year evah. I love Halloween and Thanksgiving stuff, the clothes, the colors, the smells....everything. Too bad I never get the weather! So my cute outfits? hiding under coats because I freeze all the time.
The day was made slightly better by listening to Korn at top volume one the way to work, which normally takes me about the time of two songs...but was four today thanks to me hitting EVERY LIGHT.
Then the coffee ran out while I was getting some.
Now I'm ranting.
Believe it or not, rants were not the reason for this post!!
Well they kind of were.
So last post I gushed about my new favorite doll: Luts Delf Claus, who I turned into a Male Jean Grey. Then I thought I might try to write her story for Nanowrimo. I was all into it and excited until I got back on the forums for Nano and entered the fanfic threads.
Hmog. Those people are hard core when it comes to their fandoms. And total hypocrites, it's so bad. No wonder I never got into fanfic. I can't stand the cray. And there is just so much!!! I took a suggestion to look up X-Men fanfic and found a site that had about a million stories on it....all I read were synopsissseses (eh???) and seriously, it was worse than I'd imagined. Or about the same.
It didn't exactly kill my fun, but there was little maiming. I'm not sure I have the energy for it...even if I don't ever share it, which does take a tiny bit of the fun out as well.
So with that in my head I was wandering through the rest of the Nano forums and the other thing I was afraid of started happening...Alex started clawing his way back into my brain. He does that. I have two other ideas I kind of might want to do, both of which are horror – my preferred genre. I'm not sure how I'd even do anything else. I could probably start a straight romance and end up with them chased by zombies, haunted by ghosts and eaten by demons.
And then there's the whole "rebel" thing....I really need to finish chapter 2 of Forgotten Children, and could take November to do it. then maybe start 3!
I'm on the fence. I was going to write up my ideas last night but I got into my Halloween illustration which I really need to finish since Halloween is soon, and watching Chopped on food network (but hey I got my desk cleaned! STEP ONE–COMPLETE!) and it didn't happen. Maybe I'll do it at work today. Maybe I'll share all of them, and beg for help choosing!!
I have no clue. I might crawl under a rock and do nothing for a whole month (but I'm a total addict when it comes to Nano - seriously, I don't think I can not do it - I don't even mind the failing part! It's just fun to try...).
Now here's Jean in her long wig.
I bought two of these and cut the second one shorter. It's so cute, but I've been busy and haven't gotten a pic of it. I also added eyelashes, something only Alex gets in my collection (because I hate eyelashes so damn much!! Everything gets caught in them!). I wish they were red, but I don't have red and I forgot to order them from Dollmore.....
Hey, I guess this makes it kind of doll-related!!
What d'you want, I don't have a personal blog, so this one has to do for now. Sorry! XD
