okay... i just wanted to let people know that i'm sorry for being MIA for almost 2 weeks.  i've been going through posts to catch up, but i still have quite a few comments to respond to, along with a million stories to read.  it's been REALLY hectic here, between being really sick, work, and trying to get all of my school stuff worked out.  so i promise that i will get back to everyone, especially you Raven (i owe you like 20 phonecalls... and a bday present still... no i haven't forgotten!!)

on the plus side... i've lost like 10 lbs in the last few weeks.  that is good... cept i think it came from all the stress and being sick and not having time to eat... which is bad.  :-/

so... a couple of things today.  i was finally starting not to feel so sick, and went to dance class tonight.  unfortunately... i was able to participate for barely more than a half our before my back cramped/locked up so badly that i couldn't move (from my other problems last week).  so i don't feel so good at all right now.  it was sooo horrible that i went like ghost white and almost passed out, then once i was able to lay down to try to get my lower back to relax, i went like beat red (and i don't even blush!) and i couldn't stop crying.  it was really horrible.  so i think it's safe to say that i probably won't be dancing at all in the next few weeks, at least not on the dance we were practicing, because some of the movements are what brought it on.

on the plus side, at least i got my hair cut this afternoon, rather than waiting until after class, otherwise i wouldn't have gotten done otherwise.  i'll post in the next couple of days of what it looked like b4, and then what it looks like now (it's above my chin). lol.  FINALLY i got around to chopping it off.  it's not as short as i would like, but i have like 2 1/2 months to let it grow b4 the fall bellydancing show, at even if i keep it at this length, i can at least add extensions or something if i want to. 

i'm going to go lay down for a bit now, sitting up makes my back hurt terribly.

soo... i've not had much time to do anything recently.  it kinda sucks.  this last week i've been REALLY sick (that's why i haven't gotten back to you yet Raven!!).  i've had some really bad internal problems, which has caused some of my other problems to flair (spelling on that?) up, so i pretty much spent most of this week in bed being really, REALLY sick.  which means i'm prolly gonna have to get surgery again in a few months, which blows.

other than that, i just wanted to say that everyone is who following the LJ crap that is going on (again), i'm over at Greatest Journal and Insane Journal, same screen name.  right now i only have story stuff and rec lists posted, and i'll just see where to go from there if it comes to anything really bad with LJ.  either way, i will still keep my LJ, but i will be very sad to see a lot of the fandom go, because in the end, i'm not sure how many will transfer to another journal.  so yeah... that's the scoop on that for now. 

hopefully i will have a chance to update again, sooner rather than later, once i start to feel a bit better.  this week has been rough, especially since i wasn't able to take any of it off work.

i cannot say enough things.  i mean... like wow.  i could NOT fall asleep last night after i got home, and i ended up getting like 2 hours of sleep before i had to get up for work.  and the theater ended up selling out like... 8 individual theaters for the midnight show.  somehow we got lucky and our group was behind like the first 25 people or so, and we were the first theater to get seated, so we didn't have to wait but like 10 minutes outside the theater, so that was nice.  anyways.... onto th spoilers, which is an incredibly long list!!!  they are cut, so read them at  your own risk!

so... for some reason today (maybe the fact that i'm seeing the 5th movie in a few hours, and the next book is coming out in a week and a half), i felt like working on my novel length story, Outside Our World.  i've actually had the next chapter finished for.... over a year... but i wasn't happy with it, so i never posted it.  there were quite a few things i wanted to change in the previous chapters, from how the boys reacted to certain things, and to make details a bit clearer.  so i just spent most of the afternoon going back through the first 6 (posted) chapters and revamping them, though a couple of them i only changed little things.  i don't have time tonight to do chapter 7 (the unposted one), cause i gotta go take a nap so i'm rested for the movie, plus i have a REALLY long day of work tomorrow.  i'm thinking that this will help me get back into the groove of writing a bit though, which would be nice.  now that i've changed some of the things from my other chapters, i think it will be easier to make the chapter 7 changes and then go from there.  hopefully this week i will be sending this stuff off to my betas for them to redo, and make sure i didn't screw anything up too badly. 

so yeah... that's what i did today. i'm surprised i could concentrate, because i'm sooo friggen excited to see the movie!  it's pouring down rain here right now, lightning, thunder, and all, so i'm hoping that the line isn't soo incredibly long tonight when i get there that i have to wait outside.  that would blow.  we had to do that for PoTC3 and it wasn't fun. 

okay... time for a nap.

So... some movies I've watched recently and I feel like telling you about them.  All the reviews below have slight spoilers. 

Nancy Drew

ND review )



Knocked Up




Transformers




Apocalypto





OMG... only a few days until HP OoTP movie!  I'm sooo excited!  Of course, Josh will be out of town for training, so guess who I get to go with?  My sister... but oh... just not my sister.  3 of her friends too!  So basically it's like me... the 22 year old chaperone, with 4 high schoolers. Gah.  At least they are all Harry Potter fans, and most of them have read the books, which is more than I can say for Josh.  He doesn't ready ANYTHING. 
so yeah..  i was bored a few weeks ago and i decided to make an AMV for Ai no Kusabi, and i just realized that i never put the link up.  it's the first one i've ever made.. well technically 2nd, but it's a remake of my first one (i was using the OLD SCHOOL Windows Movie Maker, and i got a new program from my sister so i redid it).  but yeah... i feel in the sharing mood today, so there ya go.

click on the link and it will take you to youtube to watch it!

up, up and away!



i won't object if you let me know what you think of it too. lol. 



other than that... i REALLY have about a million phone calls i need to return and people i need to talk to, but i have really felt kinda off this last week cause of the meds for my finger, and it hasn't helped that it's been crazy busy cause josh started the new job this week, so he's out of town, and will be for most of the next month except weekends.  so it's kinda lonely around the house too.  i've been reading a lot of books, and once i finish my current one, i need to finish rereading the last 3rd of HP OoTP so i can make sure i'm up on the facts (for the nitpicking of the movie).  lol.  and Raven... i owe you a very long phone call soon, and i hope to god that we get a chance to chat b4 you go back home for the wedding and stuff.  and i still owe you a bday present, lol.  though i found something new i might be getting you, rather than my original idea... so we'll see :-)
so... i am not in a good mood.  i own 4 pet rats, and one of them is fairly sick.  after cleaning out it's cage earlier, i put some of its medicine on my finger to give to it, and it pretty much tore my left pointer finger clean open.  hardcore.  as in it's still bleeding an hour later.  and i don't have any extra money to go to the docs right now, and it is killing me when my finger decides for a few seconds that it doesn't want to feel numb anymore.  and this rat has NEVER bitten me before.  i might need a couple of stitches, and i'm sure i need to get on some antibiotics.  it's already bruising too.  and i work a job where i use my hands all the time... so not cool. 

i think the thing that worries me most is that i was using insecticide right b4 this happened (i washed my hands in between), but that stuff doesn't come off u'r skin easily... and now watch, it prolly got into the wound.

so much for my day being good.  this has pretty much ruined my mood, not to mention anything i do with my hands. 


also... this took me forever to type!

yeah i stole this from [profile] auntee_mame because i had too much to respond on her post for it. 

Welcome to the 2007 edition of getting to know your friends. What you are supposed to do with this is change all the answers so they apply to you, and then paste it into the comments thread or your own LJ entry.

The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends,
if you did not know them already.

okay... watch the first video first, then watch the 2nd. the first video kinda gives you an idea of how the guy acts, and then the 2nd video is a father's day survey (from last year i believe), which also has english subs. it's soo hilarious, my stomach is killing me because i cannot stop laughing. it's ridiculous, but insanely funny.



so... in regards to the movie that my sister and i are shooting, i thought this was funny. you only get a really high score i think if you only worry about yourself (like no helping others), but i couldn't just walk away. cause of that...

at least it's better than 50%!!! i think though if i had answered the 'owning guns' question yes, then my chances would prolly be much higher. unfortunately, the only guns i have at this house are my airsoft ones. hehehe.

okay.. so i was reading an article, and i came across this.  it's in reference to JKR talking about fanfic and how it doesn't bother her at all that people love her characters enough to write them in their own stories, but doesn't exactly condone 'hard R' type of stuff, and then it makes a comment about some of the websites that have slash fic.  the next paragraph said this...

In the fall of 2006, Jason Isaacs, who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, said that he has read fan fiction about his character; he said he gets "a huge kick out of the more far-out stuff."[34]


that just made me 'omg' sooo loudly, and now i'm laughing my ass off.  i hope to god what he read includes slash, cause that would just make my day!  makes me wonder how many other of the actors have REALLY read fanfic.

hehehehe

You should fill this out, because I would like to know.  (And secretly... I love it when my inbox tells me I have new LJ comments).  I'm easily amused!

( May. 29th, 2007 10:01 pm)
So yeah.. I'm always bored.  I was just going through my old LJ, which I check like MAYBE every 5 months or so, and I found a post that made me giggle with a wonderful link on it.  BIGGEST STUFFED BUNNY I'VE EVER FRIGGEN SEEN!!!

As for stuff in RL... I've been really busy.  I feel like on my days off, I don't really have any time to relax.  We have been practicing like crazy for the next bellydancing show that is coming up, plus trying to do a ton of stuff around the house, and work in everything else in between.  Accomplishments for the day:  holes dug for posts for fencing in yard, posts put into holes for fencing in the yard, gate put up, half (it's a HUGE tree that's split into two parts) of a tree cut down - which that half still takes up like a 3rd of our back yard when it was downed, and a couple of other things.  Though I didn't really help with any of that stuff.  MY accomplishments for the day: cleaned some more in the house, took test shots (pics and vids) in the woods across the street for some scenes in my sister's movie we are shooting, finished laundry, got some more designs for the tshirt designs figured out today for my sister's movie, practiced bellydancing, read a couple of HP stories that I've been meaning to for a while, and made sun tea (hahah... and that takes like... 30 seconds of effort).   So eventful overall, but not so much on my part I guess.  Well.. kinda eventful.  More like 'lazy getting stuff done' but that's okay.

Still lots to do this week yet though.. like finish the fence, finish staining/putting up moulding, go to my bookclub meeting (HAHA... I didn't even know my mum was in one, but I guess a bunch of the girls we bellydance with are in it too, so she convinced me to come, since I love reading and all - too bad I can't be like 'YAY GAY HP FANFIC!'), taking my sister to go try out a camera she wants to buy for her movie, a small half hour show for bellydancing on Friday (not the big one we are practicing for) and then off to my friend's bday party, and I think another thing or two to do this weekend, but I just can't remember what.  Plus work.  I HATE feeling so busy, but at the same time, I've felt really bored lately when I haven't had something to do.  I think it's just cause it's that time of the year when there is no winter stuff to do, but no summer stuff either.  It is technically hot enough here to go swimming (upper 80's), but all the pools are still too cold, and it's been raining a ton too.  Plus when it's too hot the heat kinda gets to me.  I HATE being hot cause I sweat when it's like 70 degrees out, yet the electric bills are too friggen high around here (there's a huge ordeal going on with the companies), so we can't pull out the window units yet.  I will just have to suffer, unfortunately.

About the only other interesting thing that has happened in the last couple of weeks was the fact that I met Josh's bro a couple days ago... and he's extremely HOT (I feel bad saying that.. cause it's my fiance's bro... and he's married too), and I topless bartended a couple weekends ago for a friend's bachelor party he threw for his buddy. 

Oh yes... and saw Pirates 3.  I'm still undecided about the movie.  There were a ton of things I loved, but then some I didn't love so much too.  I think I will need to see it again before I make a final decision.  I mean... the action and special effects were great and all, but some of the other stuff that bothered me has kinda held my opinion at bay for the moment. 

I'm done babbling now... I think.

( May. 29th, 2007 08:16 pm)
yeah... so i just got done flocking all of my story posts, at least until this whole thingy blows over.

i'm not gonna bother with regular posts, mostly because they are pointless and there is nothing bad in them.  i HATE to flock stuff, but i would rather do that than have anything else happen. 

i wish there was a way that i could search for entries only *I* made in certain comms, so i could delete them.  i was able to do that for the more recent ones, but i don't remember exactly when i posted stuff way back when, and that makes me a bit nervous.  at least i don't post often to comms.

this sucks.  i HATE this sort of thing.  and here i was, just a couple of weeks ago, talking about how LJ is so great for fandom.  i want to throttle these people.

if anyone reads my LJ that wants to be able to get into the story related posts, just friend me and let me know on here.  that way i can friend you back.

the promise to [livejournal.com profile] rurounihime  about the little newspaper thing my sister made up in like a half hour last week cause she's good like that.  i'm a dork.. and was actually trying to read it and was like 'what is she having me look for?' and then i realized it had the county name in our movie on it!  i'm soo oblivious sometimes.  hahaha. 



while i'm at it... i'm gonna post the HP video my sister made... because she did such an awesome job and it's like perfectly together with the music.  it was only her 2nd video she ever made too!  well.. 3rd... the first time she made it it disappeared from her computer, so she remade it.  lol.  but it only took her about an hour the first time... she's great at doing stuff like this!  hence why i keep telling her to go to school for something with movies.
hehehe... my fiance was like 'omg that is soo you!' hahahah



Your Score: True Neutral

True Neutral "Pure Neutral"

"Balancer"




Some neutral [people] commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They are of the true neutral alignment as described in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.



A true neutral [person] sees good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. He advocates the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run.



Some true neutral [people] actively support balance in the world, and seek to avoid having any one side, law or chaos, good or evil, become too powerful over them or anyone else, and will work against whichever side is the most powerful. They tend to side with the underdog in any situation, and are often opportunistic in their actions.



True neutral is committed to the avoidance of extremes, and is non-judgemental.




Side-Note from Xan81:

Due to your Neutrality, I would really, really LOVE your feedback. Not that I don't want feedback from members of the other alignments, but a True Neutral's feeback is typically NOT emotionally, morally, politically, or socially charged. Please send me an email! I have it set to automatically email me when someone gets this score, so I know who you are ;) True Neutrals are the classic, "I just don't give a shit" alignment, and I fully understand if you don't feel that you have any responsability or obligation to sending an email/comment. Even if you did, I'm sure you'd have some difficulty in deciding what to comment about. But, I guess that depends on your tendencies :D

have you ever noticed that half the time in the movies, Harry's eyes are blue?  i mean... it's such a big deal that his eyes are green in the book, i don't see why they don't do a better job of color editing in the movie, or green contacts all the time, or something.

http://movies.aol.com/movie/harry-potter-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix/24593/photos/harry-potter-and-the-order-of-the-phoenix-daniel-radcliffe-as-harry-potter-stars/1884074

i mean... do they not look blue?  and these are photoshoot pictures here for friggen sake!  at least if you don't do the stuff for the eyes in the movie, do it for the damn photos!

this has been bothering me for yearsssssssssss!
