Thing one: Hurricane.
Um, so yeah. There is supposedly one of those coming. My various friends lists are torn between "I am cautiously ready for this but still nervous" and "PFFFT THERE IS NOTHING BAD HAHAHA".
I find the second far
more annoying than the first. Please stop yelling at me for being at least a little worried that I'm not really prepared in the case of an emergency. I assure you, my worry is not strictly for the incoming hurricane --however bad it turns out to be. A lot of it has to do with the lack of enough food (lots of leftovers, but very little non-perishables right now, at least for me) and spare batteries. Will have to prepare once I'm in the new house.
Thing one-point-five: House
We move on Thursday, unless we're lucky enough to do moving on Wednesday. We've been putting things into the basement of the new place (which doesn't have a name *yet* but I think we know what it's going to be...) all week, which is convenient.
We are tentatively planning a housewarming for somewhere during the weekend of the 16th/17th. Further details to appear as we come up with them.
I'm pretty excited about this, despite lack of job.
Thing one-point-seven-five: Job
I'm working on it. I am very very poor at coming up with motivation, apparently, which is frustrating as all fuck. But there are some leads out, and on Monday I can send out the Medford app (which is done via mail) and other stuff.
I figure I can survive on savings until November. If I can't find _any job at all_ by then, well...then maybe I did something dreadfully wrong, and maybe the world really is that harsh right now. We'll see though.
Thing two: Cosplay/Dragon*Con
I am tentatively working on three cosplays for D*C. Plus, I mean, I'll have an assortment of short skirts to prance around it, and at least one good looking steampunk outfit. So I can pretty much promise I'll look "interesting" no matter whether I'm actively pretending to be someone else or not.
Of the cosplays, one of them is kinda a pipe dream unless I can acquire a black zentai hood, or otherwise figure out a way to black out my face entirely. Also, I really need to have *not* packed away the dress that I need for it --hopefully I can get that on the first before I leave. Or maybe I'll just swing by [new place] and rummage around some afternoon.
The second requires a trip to Belmhaus, where I have some stuff stored in the basement. Or, I mean, ideally a way to get all that stuff to my house on the first or something. But at any rate, I am missing a prop and I'm pretty sure it's in there somewhere. Could also use my army boots if I can find them.
Thing two-point-five: Numbering
Yeah, the numbering is so wacky because I wrote out some things I wanted to write about, and then keep thinking of other things in-between to write about. There is no order or reason to them.
Thing three: Birthday
It's in NINE MINUTES! FUCK YEAH WOO YEAH WOO!
Thing three-point-five: Bike
So, today I got a chance to ride a bike that was not Blaise, which has basically not happened to me in well over a year. It was Nurit's little tiny road bike, which actually fit me pretty well (apparently Nurit and I have pretty close to the same length legs) except for the stupid hard leaning forward I had to do due to the handlebars being lower than the seat. Hard on the wrists, and shoulders and back.
That being said, ohmygod, I love Blaise. See, she's a mountain bike. With nice wide mountain bike tires, and a good suspension. Potholes on Blaise? Kinda not a big deal. Potholes on this bike? Hahaha, ohgod, I nearly fell off and died.
More importantly, Nurit's bike seems to have proper working brakes, which Blaise does not. Meaning, when I squeezed the brakes such to start slowing myself down, the bike immediately stopped -which never happens with Blaise- and I pitched over the handlebars and scraped up my hands.
(Stop freaking out, werewulf
--it was a surprise, but I was wearing my helmet and safely in the bike lane, with no cars coming. I landed hands and knees, and didn't have another problem the whole rest of the trip.)
So, the moral of this story is "ah. That's how they're *supposed* to work, okay fine." and I will be going in to get Blaise's brakes realigned as soon as I get a recommendation for a store that will not snidely tell me that I just need a new bike in order to fix my problem. Yes, that actually happened to me last time I needed repairs. :(
I am supposed to say something nice about Maryland, and suspect that "well, the people there are fucking amazing" is a bit of a cop-out.( And then I say a *lot* of things about Maryland, not all of them nice, but at least few of them cruel. )
Thing four: Tumblr
So, I made a tumblr. It is, shockingly enough, at Sorcyress dot tumblr dot com. You can follow me, and if you tell me you have a tumblr, I will probably follow you. YAY!
My general opinion is that it is for reblogging gifs. I've also made some other random vaguely fannish posts on there. I feel like I'm flailing for content, which is part of why I'm pretty confident I'm never actually going to leave livejournal in any serious way. My posting here may ebb or flow, but this is my eighth straight year of posting, without ever really stopping. Let's keep it up!
Pee-Ess: I started this entry yesterday. Which means that now it is my 22nd birthday! FUCK YES GO ME!
