I had a big plan for the piece this year and then I got really sick and I'm still sick. I'll be going back to the doctor at 3:45 p.m. today to hopefully get some meds that work.

Also, working double and triple duty at work is pulling me down.

And I really and truly didn't want to do it if my dear LNchan can't participate in it! =^^=

Wow, it has been one hell of a long time since I've posted here! Then again, I finally feel well enough to type for long periods of time. This week Thursday will be my last physical therapy appointment for my shoulder and I will be considered "cured" for at least a little while. That made me really happy!

I didn't end up doing Jack for the charity event but Tinkerbell instead. I have to say it was the highlight of my cosplaying career! I had one little girl when she saw me (she was around four) run up to me, throw her arms around my neck and tell me she had waited her whole life to see me! *=^o^=* Another little girl thought it was the best birthday present ever that she got to meet Tinkerbell face to face and take a picture with her. I've been invited back for the Christmas season during the holiday light display to interact with the guests as Tink her winter clothes. I can see why Disney cast members love being the character, it has been the highlight of my year.

I'm really anxious to get back into writing again. I've got this massive idea for a Tony Stark/Jarvis fic with a Tony/Bruce and Bruce/Jarvis subplot to it. Its been niggling in my brain now for almost two months. I also want do get back to writing in the "Sherlock" fandom as I have seriously missed it!

That's it for tonight, ja ne for now! =~.^=V

And it's been a pretty decent one. Mum and Pop gave me a card and $50. My work gave me a couple cards and a small piece of cake.

I got lots of well wishes from everyone and that meant a lot to me.

What would have made this day better?

If I hadn't been up the whole previous night with the stomach flu.

Needless to say my traditional birthday dinner has been put off until Thursday.

But on the bright side, in least it's not raining!

Thanks to everyone for the wishes, it means the world to me!

Hmm...

I realized that all I really want in life today was to sit and watch Mads Mikkelson and Viggo Morteson drink coffee and speak completely in Danish to each other the whole time.

That and relief from a new cold that has wormed its way into my head.

And maybe a donut.

Definitely a donut.

Fortunately it seems that the leak I had in my roof has been taken care of. I'm actually staying at my 'rents house tonight as I'm housesitting since they're still in Colorado until tomorrow afternoon.

I've gotten a nice reaction to the whole "Satan's Alley" doujinshi. I didn't realize how many peeps want the storyline expanded. I'm contemplating about using the idea of the "torn back/scars" that LNchan and I have discussed and formulating that into a secondary story idea. It would once again have limited speaking, mostly from Connell, but I would be able to finally give O'Malley more dialogue including a small speaking role like it was in the first story.

Rambling aside, I feel like I'm at a bit of a crossroads at the moment. Everyone has been showing me new anime and manga and nothing has interested me. I still watch "Aikatsu" simply because I think it's cute and that's about it. Alot of yaoi pairings have lost all interest to me and if I have one more person push "Homestuck" on me, I think I will leave Tumblr permanently. That being said, I downloaded the Tumblr Savior on my home PC which now thankfully blocks out about 90% of Homestuck related posts. =-.-= One can only stand so much about a pixelated 8-bit comic world without getting a little nauseous thinking about it.

Robert Downey Jr., Kirk Lazarus and Jude Law. Let's make this a smutty, angsty, painful, beautiful thing, ne? Now THERE'S a comic idea!

For those of you who don't know, my current half of the state has been blanketed by one of the biggest rain clouds we've had in a very long time. Mid to late May is not a normal time for rain but there has been a very bad drought for almost 7 years so I am not objecting to the moisture.

I am, however, objecting to waking up at a quarter to six this morning with a steady stream of water plummeting from my ceiling in my new bedroom to my carpeted floor. Thankfully it was only one spot and I did manage to get a bucket underneath said leak. Also, a real blessing was that the leak is nowhere near any of my furniture and misses my bed all together. I still think I may have to sleep on the couch tonight because I can't stand the sound of water "plinking" into a container. =-.-=

In other news, I finished drawing and inking the next page of the SA doujinshi. I just have to erase the pencil marks tonight and being work on the following page. Randomly, yesterday a group of girls suddenly started to reblog the current pages 1-5 on Tumblr. One girl added that she wished that this was a crossover between Satan's Alley and that show The Vikings from the History Channel. I didn't really understand the comment but I guess if she liked it, whatever, right?

Finished the next chapter to LNchan and I's "Sherlock Holmes" piece. I'm pleased with it and it'll be fun moving into more of the action portion as well as beginning to "heat up" John and Sherlock's relationship.

That's all for now! I've got work in a couple hours so I best prep for it. Yay.

I'm happy to say though I was more than grateful and glad to stay at my 'rents house, I am back in my own place with almost everything I need moved into my brand new master bedroom. The room used to be the family den so it's double the size of my "old" master bedroom which used to be my parents' room.

I'm so ridiculously excited to actually have room to stand in the middle of the floor and not trip over a bookshelf or misplaced binder. =^^=;;

Plus, I got two koma strips printed out on my store computer to place in between doujinshi stories. It's a joke about Robert and Tobey finding out about "Satan's Alley" fan fiction. I'll be doing those with chibi/SD styled charas of them. And yiss, looks like I'll have enough stories to put together a whole RDJ mini fanbook that I hope I can manage to figure out how to get printed on my printer. We'll see, ne?

That's all for tonight! I best be heading off to my new room and start putting books on the shelves! Woot!

Please stop being a pain in the rear and giving me MASSIVE inspiration when I'm standing at my checkstand and cannot take notes as tons of images and directions flood my mind.

Not that you will pay attention but in least I needed to let you know it is very annoying when I can't do anything about it! =-.-=

Random note, I pranked a telemarketer today by answering the phone in Korean. XD
miracleshining: Jack Sparrow 1 (Breathe)
I wasn't a bit fan of the first G.I. Joe, having only seen bits and pieces but I really liked the cartoon, my fave two being Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Both were main characters in this movie. (And might I add that Storm was portrayed by one of my favorite actors, Lee Byunghun?)

That being said, it was a pretty rollicking good movie with lots of explosions, a really awesomely strong female characters and The Rock, which is always a bonus.

Random note, I am not ashamed to admit I ship Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow. Hell, I think I did that when I was like eight! XD

I hope everyone had a very Happy Easter! =^^= Ours was very quiet as we celebrated with my family yesterday. So today after we attended church, we went out for a light lunch. Which unfortunately did not agree with my recently overly sensitive stomach, so I went without supper tonight because I just couldn't handle the idea of trying to eat anything else. Blech. This is what happens when you don't eat fast food often and then go to KFC. =^^=;;

Other random things, apparently a private group has almost finished translating "DRAMATICAL Murder," which is a BL game that has all the Tumblr girls in a tizzy right now. Though it looks really interesting, why is it that the games that I want to play never get translated? Oh that's right, its because I like the games featuring older gents or guys with facial hair. XD

LNchan and I will randomly start piecing together an SH project using our respective characters. I'm looking forward to it, I think it will be a lot of fun and give me a chance to flex my muscles. Her and I work really well together and it makes for easy and fun writing.

That's all for tonight, hoping to have something more interesting to post. Oh, I should also add that today I met a young man named Aaron who just moved into a town about ten miles away from me and attends my church. He looks like a cross between Johnny Depp and Viggo Mortenson. He wants to take me out next Friday. =^^=;; Ja ne!

Toys R Us was having this very unique sale where if you subscribed to XBox Live Gold membership for 2 years for $14.99 a month, you could get an XBox and a Kinect for $99.00.

Thank heavens I went all the way to Rapid with my dad after work today because I got the last one that had the Kinect. I think the gal was really surprised I was so willing to go into the membership. It was based soley on the fact that I have a bank credit card that has to be used at least once a month to keep my credit rating up. Now, since once a month Xbox will charge that card, I can securely put it away and forget I have it for two years. Yatta!

Also made a reserve payment on the DISfinity game coming out in June. I admit, I only did it because I wanted to play as Captain Jack Sparrow and he is one of the first characters you get. =^^=;; My Sparrow love knows no bounds!

So in a nutshell I now am part of the XBox generation. In reality, I would have perferred a Wii, but for that price, I wasn't going to let it pass by!

Now back to my mad plot bunny involving a real!Kirk Lazarus/Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law mess that is dancing it's way all over my brain. XD
miracleshining: Kirk Lazarus 1 (Lost)
So last night I was dinking around on Tumblr (big surprise) looking for RDJ pics and stumbled across the actual Kirk Lazarus tag. So I clicked it and low and behold, tons of fantastic images of Downey with that wonderful golden hair and fantastic frightening blue eyes popped up.

And someone had made a suggestion that writing a Tony Stark/Kirk Lazarus fic would be cool since they were both of Downey's characters.

Cue PLOT BUNNY FROM HELL.

So here I'm sitting there going, "What if Kirk Lazarus was a real person and he and Robert ended up working on a film together where they played fraternal twins? Something like an erotic suspense thriller and Jude Law was cast as a doctor who they both end up getting obsessed with? But off set both Robert and Kirk are actually battling for Jude's affection/love. And the more intense their desires get, the more torn Jude becomes between his deep connection with Robert and his immediate attraction to Kirk. To make matters worse, Robert and Kirk are finding it difficult to deal with the building sexual tension between them."

And then I had to go to sleep before I started slamming down notes on my computer wordpad. This does not mean I may not write this. Hell, I'm on the verge already!
miracleshining: Sherlock Watson 2 (Whisper)
I ended up going to the doctor yesterday and found out I had what I suspected. Strep Throat. I had managed the whole year without getting it and thought perhaps I would bypass it this year, since we've moved out of the "season" for it.

Low and behold, it reared it's ugly head. So annoyed I can hardly stand it. I've also lost my voice. I was fortunate that work let me leave very early today, I was pretty useless trying to answer the phone. =^^=;;

Sherlock musings, I'm debating if I want to do a secondary Sherlock outfit, more of a closet cosplay? I was thinking about doing his white button up shirt, pinstripe pants and suspenders? Like what he wears when he's messing around with his violin. Or maybe the dressing jacket from the first movie when his beloved Watson throws open the curtains on him? Seems like it would be a bit fun to do.

Randomly debating if I want to delve a bit into RPS writing again and do a bit of RDJude. It would just be here at DW basically for LNchan and I to get a chuckle out of. =~.^= Oh, and I've been making small animated icons from Sherlock. They've been a bit of a trick but fun to make!

And that's all for tonight, ja ne for now! =~.^=V

Well, after what seemed like an endless week, I'm getting ready for bed and looking forward to a 3-day weekend. Tomorrow a.m. my 'rents and I are picking up our first "Bountiful Baskets" order, which is a direct from farm to buyer produce program. For approximately $15.00, we get around $70.00 in produce for two weeks. Also bonus, I ordered the mixed bread basket. (I'm such a garden geek!)

With Mum's encouragement, I ordered an older "Angelic Pretty" dress from "Closet Child" today. I had to put a few things into Google Translate since the order form has changed since I used it last. I bought the OP (One-piece) of "Whipped Magic" in darker pink today. It was a design from 2008 that initially I didn't like but after a few years, it has really grown on me. It's been nicknamed "Toxic Cupcake" because of the use of brighter greens in some of their cupcakes on the print. I think its cute and will look adorable with my blonde and pink bob.

Also, fell completely in love with the anime "Aikatsu." It was a random link on the side of Youtube that I clicked a few days ago. Literally addicted. I normally am not fond of shoujo anime, especially ones geared at obviously tweens, but there is something really endearing about this. The female main characters are very likeable and instead of being catty when one succeeds, they're actually sincerely happy. Yes, it's about girls achieving their dreams to become Idol Singers/Actresses/Models, but it also makes a point of showing you have to do a lot of hard work to get there.

Another reason I love it? The above guy featured in my icon. His name is Johnny Bepp. And yes, he was designed after the actor Johnny Depp. He's the girls' choreographer and speaks quite often in Engrish. He's very cute, he's very funny and he has quite a few "Depp-isms" that are obvious to us hard core fans.

That's about it for today. I'm getting pretty excited to get back into lolita seriously again. I didn't realize how much I missed it. Oh, and I bought my "Sherlock" pinstripe pants last week. I found them at a second hand store for 4 bucks! What are the odds?

Ja ne for now! =~.^=V

Have taken away my ability to think clearly. On the upside, I'm finding things way more humorous than I should be.

Konbanwa, minnasan, it was quite a day for me today. I made arrangements last night to be gone for today and tomorrow as I fight my battle with a nasty cold I got. Cue getting called at 5:30 in the morning because the other price coordinator suddenly called in "sick" even though she knew I was ill last night. Needless to say, I was pulled out of a deep sleep and informed my poor coworker that I could not come in, I really was too sick to even get out of bed. She called me back a bit later and said that our boss was going to come in and take care of it. What the price coordinator didn't realize is that I had spoken to my boss yesterday and he knew I was going to be gone. Score one for me for thinking ahead!

But enough about whining about work, I was scrolling through Tumblr collecting bits and pieces for my Marvel image collection and then realized that I didn't have a whole lot of stuff with Daken (Akihiro) on them. So a "tumblin'" I went.

I like Daken. I really, really, REALLY do. I know some of my comic friends state its because he's covered in tattoos and the fact that he's blatantly bisexual. Yes, those are bonus points but I liked him because he's manipulative, cruel and dowright EVIL. And *SPOILER*, I thought the way he died was really sucky and downplayed what a vital component he was during the whole "Dark Avengers" arc. (Mind you, I don't have all the issues and probably never will even if I tried.)

But aside from that, Daken to me seemed like the most realistic of all Marvel villians. Yeah, he had "Daddy" issues when it came to Wolverine big time. But there were times that he seemed sincerely concerned about the welfare of others. Even if for a flitting moment.

And aside from his metal claws he inherited from his pop, he had a very unique style and appearance that is all his own. He can rock a suit, being shirtless or putting on the "Dark Wolverine" costume and it all looks awesome.

Plus, he has the ability to manipulate his pheremones as a lovely website pointed out, which allows him to be utterly alluring to both genders and perhaps some alien lifeforms. He doesn't seem to have an issue with all three.

So bonus points to Daken, you were a villianous superstar and I hope that in the future, Marvel resurrects and uses you again.

In the mean time, let us appreciate all the fine boyz you managed to snag during your run. We have your "inferred" relationship with Norman Osbourne of "Spidey" fame. We have you hitting on Venom. We have you hitting on Ares. We have you hitting on The Thing. We have you not only hitting on Fantastic 4 Johnny, but coming to his apartment, sneaking in and putting on his clothes before playing all shy and cute with him. We have you making out with Bullseye and my personal favorite, we have you exchanging pheremone signatures with Remy. (Why the hell didn't that go somewhere faster?)

And pics, because I can.

Now I'm hankering for Daken/Remy. Why must I always like the hard to come by pairings! =;.;=

Well, minnasan, I can honestly say I've not done much today. Mostly because my cyatic nerve decided to disable me for about 18 hours. This is my first time really sitting up.

Nevertheless, I was a bit bored and thought I would throw some of my closet pieces together to get a feel for my Sherlock cosplay. I have to admit, I'm not too disappointed for a "closet" cosplay.

So I managed to download the Y!M last night. It looks quite a bit different from what I remember it and I had to disable a BUNCH of options like the emoticons, instant sign in, etc. Plus, I have to set up a major block list if I want to use it, because quite frankly, I only want to talk to LNchan on it. =^^=

Just watched a slew of Sherlock/Watson fan videos and realized about three of Sherlock's outfits can easily be done out of items I already own in my closet. Thanks to my virtually noexistant chest, with a simple sports bra, I can do quite a few of the wide open shirt with suspenders outfits he wears. Which means I'll have to start practicing on doing my "five o'clock shadow" makeup once again. I used to be pretty darn good at it when I used to dress as Jack.

Don't know if Nick is going to be with me long enough to be my Watson. However, one of my dear friends who could pull off a replica of Jude Law if he wanted too, may be willing to step in. He's been interested in cosplay for a few years but his husband often places it among the "kinky things" versus just a past time. In least I won't have to worry about anything getting frisky after a photoshoot with him.

That's about it for tonight. Planning to make some Sherlock and Sherlock/Holmes icons here pretty soon to go along with my new Hobbit ones. Until next time, ja ne! =~.^=V

Happy Valentine's Day, minnasan, I hope it was a lovely one! Mum and Pop surprised me by taking me out for dinner at my favorite Mexican restaurant. Just got back from that. And though it is a bit shaky still, seems like Nick and I might be trying to actually make a go of it. (In least, that's what his mum Rose is really hoping. She hasn't physically met me but seems to already adore me. =^^=;;) We're exchanging Valentine's later this month.

And now for Bravo to Marvel. Once again you have outdone yourself with your X-treme X-men series. You pushed the boundaries and what made it fantastic was how accepting the fans were of this alternative universe you set up for the short issue run. Unfortunately, where I live, the comic book store only cares a minimum, they are more DC fans I think than anything. Yes, DC, you did a good attempt with the alternative Green Lantern storyline but I'm afraid Marvel trumped you.

Let's here it for the most wonderfully drawn and heavily charged panel in the X-treme X-men arsenal.

 photo herwolv1_zps3b5bc7ca.jpg

Just the way I like my couples. Big, musclebound, hairy and involving Wolverine. And apparently Wolverine likes his men taller, aka why he is groping on his Hercules.

Bravo again, Marvel. Not only were the fans super accepting of the Herc/Wolvie couple, but many of them have stated their blatant approval of this pairing. Too bad it was for only an alternative short run storyline. =;.;=

And that's all the rambling for today! As my precious LNchan stated, 1/2 off chocolate tomorrow!

Why don't I own more junk with Deadpool on it? I don't even own a t-shirt but I do want the little Lego version of him.

I think it was very funny on Tumblr when someone made a comment about Deadpool not being bisexual. Flash forward to a recent issue where one of the Marvel ladies had to check his mind to look for a secret.

What did she come up with?

Deadpool was dreaming about being on a secluded beach with Cable wearing nothing but speedos and rubbing lotion into Cable's very strong and firm back.

Take that! said the Marvel artists.

Score one for Marvel!

And let us not forget the famous few panels of Spidey rescuing DP and DP's got little hearts floating over his head and is wearing a very tiny lolita dress over his body suit. =^^=

And that's my random stream of thought today after all the equipment deciding to go down at the same time at work today.
