Back from the LA Japanese Food Festival having gorged myself on food, sake, and beer. Am about to set my nose to the grindstone to get through this strange NaNoWriMo slump and wanted to dedicated to the flist this must listen beautiful 50s-Girl-Pop-with-a-hint-of-Gospel-meets-Hippie-Strings (phew!) Noisettes cover of The Killers' When We Were Young off BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.



Have a great week ahead everyone!

And that was what my day was like... Thank you for the kind birthday wishes everyone! And thank lots for the luverly virtual gifts that are sitting pretty in my profile page :D Birthdays used to be something I dreaded for years, and happily yesterday was not the case.

Also, I have $20 in store credit at my LCS! Brilliant news as I am quite broke D: Haven't the faintest of what to purchase, partly because I will be putting up all of my comics on eBay in a few weeks. I'm moving away in December, and will not be able to bring anything that won't fit into my suitcase with me. So it's gotta be good, and it's gotta be something that I can stash with me. If only my LCS sold the Wildcat action figure I've been lusting over for months! That would solve my problem.

And awkward subject matter change -- Halloween and NaNo are just around the corner, folks! Can you feel it? :D

BIRTHDAYS!

HAPPY BELATED

BIRTHDAY


SMITTENLY,

BRADYGIRL_12,

AND EDDIESTEADY4711!



Sorry it's so damned late ;___; Hope you had a grand time!

And though old meme is old, I hope someone (Tea?) gets a kick out of this:



I hate to agree with Kanye, but the man is right. <3 Donne!

I thought what I was going to do was take a class on Java for the fun of it. Then I started scrolling through the computer science programs offered by the community colleges, and there are certificates that could possibly mean career placement (network management, web programming etc). At this point of time I don't know if it's something I want to jump into, but it sounds like an interesting option. It also makes me wonder, in terms of job opportunities would it make more sense to go the Bachelor's route or through a vocational college providing a certificate instead? If anyone on the flist has any advice or stories, it'd be much appreciated!

Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award. If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own.

Oh my goodness. Thanks so much for [livejournal.com profile] pervyficgirl and [livejournal.com profile] bradygirl_12 for being awesome, and then for picking me! To repay the favour:

1. [livejournal.com profile] icarus_chained for her imaginative and sensitive posts and fics, which I'm always glad to see on the flist

2. [livejournal.com profile] cold_nostalgia for being so down-to-earth in the face of drama, and for spoiling us whenever she posts Harley/Ivy fic

3. [livejournal.com profile] bakarini for her corrupting influence in making me watch Merlin, and also for sharing her filthy Merlin fic-p0rn XD

4. [livejournal.com profile] nevermore999 for standing up for Steph/Spoiler and comic fans everywhere, and for being a wonderfully self-confident young woman the rest of us can look up to

5. [livejournal.com profile] parlance for her activism, link roundup, music posts, and posts of Curt-induced jollity, and I'm a better person for knowing her!

6. [livejournal.com profile] scififanatic for putting up with me blathering on and on about comics stuff that has nothing to do with the question she originally posed, and for the inspiring posts that make the world a less harsh place

7. [livejournal.com profile] ldragoon for the insightful posts on feminism, vegetarianism, human rights, and for being the sane voice in a strange new time

8. [livejournal.com profile] cissie_king for the side-splitting posts, and for going against the sometimes sheep-like mentality of S_D

9. [livejournal.com profile] fictionalknight for being such a brilliant person with whom I find we have a lot in common and thus need no longer feel like such a nerd, for prompting me to write that Smallville/LoSH fic and for never ceasing to be herself :D

10. [livejournal.com profile] mithen whose Superman/Batman fics (Earth and Sky series to be precise) is what drew me to be part of the DC Comics fandom in the first place

Hugs all around to those on my flist, because really, you all make LJ a hundred times better XD
