Hey guys!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Long time, no see! So I created a new journal here - [info]yaynan - and I'll be crossposting there. Watching the last HP movie reignited my interest in that fandom and it's just. Too teeny on DW. :(

But anyways, feel free to friend my new journal!

Raarrggghhh, I am being so absent-minded today! Okay, okay, here's my to-do list. It is a list of FUN STUFF but I'm basically, like, horrible at focusing and not being a total floundering mess!

1. Finish downloading and installing Allods Online (open beta started! Is anyone else playing because it is free to play!)
2. Install the tablet drivers on the new laptop.
3. Have Sandra have her baby yay!
4. DRAW.
5. WRITE. ([livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang omg I am so behind)
7. Play Star Ocean

Surely, this is a doable list! Right? I CAN MULTITASK OKAY.

So. Yeah.

I don't think I've ever posted my thoughts on the Avatar (the Last Airbender) movie. The show is very near and dear to my heart and the movie, well, I started out being super excited about it and I'm pretty sure I left things off there.

Since the trailer has started airing on tv (I have no idea if it's been airing or if I've just now noticed), it's really caused a flair up in discussion about the movie. So I figured I should just go ahead and point out that it might look cool (and I will totally admit the trailer is looking pretty awesome, special effects-wise), it's still a racist movie with a whitewashed cast.

Now, I'm not going to hate on anyone who actually goes to see it, since it's very possibly to watch something - and even enjoy it - and still note that it is problematic (true story: I do this for most everything I watch!). However, if you deny that it is racist, that it is problematic that Shyamalan or whoever is in charge of casting took these Asian/Native Peoples characters (and they are Asian and Native Peoples - particularly Inuit - and, and, c'mon people, don't play) and decided that it would be better, for whatever reason, to have white actors play them, well. I'm just not sure what to say about that. But whatever I say certainly won't be good.

This minor rant caused by the fact that everyone IRL who cares at all about Avatar is excited about the movie and when I express concerns, say something to the affect of 'they're not really Asian'/'it's just a movie'/'don't harsh my squee.' And you know? Not cool. Not cool.

Just some reactions to the Olympics so far )

I was playing the Sims and everything was going well and my dog had learned a command and my two little dudes were BBFs and thinking about proposals and the garden was looking nice and they were happy and shit and then one of them accidentally set the kitchen on fire and after that, it glitched and I had to delete that household. :| I WAS DISAPPOINT. But it's cool because I didn't even want them in that neighborhood ANYWAY so it all ended up working for the best. BUT STILL. :| I just have to remember save more often because that's my problem with all games; I'll play for so long, shit goes down and I lose all of that progress. BLAH. XD

[personal profile] darthneko! I got the books! *HUG*

Also, I woke up at 3am this morning and scribbled down two scenes that are happening in my Sherlock Holmes AU.


There's a poll going on for a Final Fantasy Big Bang. Guys, if you are in the least bit interested in this, please go vote! It would be incredibly awesome and fun!

I'm currently playing Star Ocean: First Departure. I will eventually say something about it other than "omg cute!" and "I love Millie!" EVENTUALLY.

So I sabotage myself!

In a fit of insanity, I changed my prompt for [livejournal.com profile] au_bigbang from FFVIII characters set in a modern day zombie apocalypse to a Sherlock Holmes steampunk AU.

[dreamwidth.org profile] pyreflies told me this was a bad idea but I just wouldn't listen omg. But guys. GUYS. I might be a little obsessed at the moment and the best time to write is when you're obsessed with something. Right? I'm going to go with right.

I probably should have dropped, since we're suppose to be at approximately 5,000 words by February 2. But I'm not! Because I've never written an AU before and if I don't do it now, I doubt I ever will. Plus, I have to get over my fear of writing Sherlock Holmes fanfic. *G*

Also got my assignment for [dreamwidth.org profile] newgameplus and whoa. I got something that I didn't expect! I mean, clearly I expected it, since I offered, but it's for a fandom/pairing/character that I've never really dealt with before. I'm excited! \o/

I'm off tomorrow and this pleases me greatly.

Another quickie omg

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Eeee, I won two auctions. \o/

And I didn't realize there was a Lightning Round, for stuff that gets done before the 22 (of January). I'm offering five three 500-1000 word drabbles here. Although this isn't really an auction, more like a Buy It Now type of thing. First come, first serve. XD

I'm not going to be home at noon! I will surely be losing some auctions. XD

Far enough, far enough, isn't far enough

So I didn't write on the 7th, on the 8th [personal profile] pyreflies and I went to a coffee shop and nattered around FOREVER so I didn't get any writing done, and LAST NIGHT I went shopping and watched a movie with C and A.

I am off work today. [dreamwidth.org profile] anime_manga has just opened it's prompts. I WILL HAVE SOMETHING POSTED BY TONIGHT. *DETERMINED*

This year I've been ordered to participate in [livejournal.com profile] ff_exchange! And I'm really interested in Tanabata, a fic exchange for small/obscure East Asian fandoms (anime/manga/manhwa/video games/literature/movies/TV shows/you get it). And certain people have been trying to persuade me to join in the Moments of Rapture 2010 GW contest. And Yuletide is a given, considering how much fun it was.

Guys. GUYS. WHAT HAVE I DONE. OMG. Fortunately, I don't think any of them overlap and if they do, it's nothing major. So. That's good? XD

Oh, and I've joined [dreamwidth.org profile] copper_street, specifically for the 2010 year-long word count challenge. XD I was tempted to take tier 4, but decided to take tier 3 (200,000 words). I'll be making a journal header/post thing to show my progress. I GOT THIS.

Last night my head started to hurt. This is nothing new - headaches come and go. This one, though, decided to stick around and get so bad I thought I was going to throw up and all I could do was cover up on my bed and turn out all the lights and bury my head in the pillow to get rid of noise. Oh, and I took something fairly strong for it that also knocked me out.

So I slept until around 7:00pm until 3:00am, when I got my phone and set the alarm. Then I went back to sleep and woke up at 7:00am.

Guys? I really don't want to go to work today. It doesn't hurt but it feels extremely tender and I know the pain is sticking around. I can feel it hovering over the bridge of my nose.
