Oh god I hope this isn't gonna be a running theme -- kiffies drabbling at been-o-clock at night.

Love. )

Good news:

Kiffies has a job as a pizza jerk/delivery kiffs!

Bad news:

Voodoo decided that her starter was no longer a necessary part, and made me (and a Friendly Stranger) push her out of the Alberston's parking lot.

I hope she gets her shit together by tomorrow, because I have work at 9am. B|

Why am I watching "Ghost" again?

This is why I shouldn't own movies.

For the last few days, I've been trying to draw, and while I have been able to, I've only managed little 30-40 minute chunks at a time. Why?

Because it's so damn humid, I feel like I'm in a sauna.

It's not hot! It maxed out at 80 today, and maaaaybe got to 70 in the house. But it's humid beyond belief. And you don't know annoying until you can't hold a pen for how much your hands are sweating.

I run both of my phones off the same jack and then call myself.

Probably only hilarious to me.

Job interview in Petaluma tomorrow! :D


Petaluma is 3 hours North of me. Looks like I may be moving. :/

Well, Damn

I just found out that Deep Springs, which I'd always been interested in but could not attend, will begin admitting women as of the 2013 schoolyear.

As most of you know, I've just graduated.

Timing! ( ._.)9

...finding one of your dad's old comics on an archive site.

I haven't seen a lot of his comic book stuff, because he didn't get to keep most of his pencils. But, it looks like someone on a He-Man forum went on a scanning spree.

Or, why kiffies have been more MIA than usual.

Last week, I found a gas leak in my house.

I called a stove repair company, as I traced it to somewhere near the stove. Stove guy said no, it was under the house. Landlord called the propane folks. Propane folks said that gas leaks weren't a priority, and made me wait four days. During that time, the smell got worse.

I scrambled to get Hermes out of the house, just in case, and made a great effort to stay mostly gone, myself.

Finally, on Monday, the gas guy came, turned one little bolt, and said, "Yep."

Eight pages, people.



Now, I never wish to see a plant sample or a mounting board or acetate paper ever again.

You know...

Once you accept that you're not getting any sleep, you don't actually get tired.


Of course, that may also be the giant bottle of fruit juice and horrific adrenaline talking.

God, I'm going to fail so bad at this final paper.

It should not take me half an hour to load a ribbon.

It's been half a day, and I still look like I lost a fight with an ink bottle.

No love,

Last night, I was showering.

I look up. There's a daddy longlegs chilling on his web, just above my head. I figure, eh, I won't move him. He's high enough up that he shouldn't get wet, and I wasn't planning on taking a long enough shower for the steam to hurt him. I soap up my brush, then look back up... just in time to see a freaking tarantula sling skitter across the ceiling after the daddy longlegs.

I was out of that shower so quick, you have no idea.

The tarantula is, maybe, the size of a quarter. It looks like it wants some delicious daddy longlegs for dinner. Except daddy longlegs webs aren't nearly sturdy enough to hold a T, even a baby. So it flails all over, trying to get a grip and pull the other arachnid in. By now, I'm getting cold, and annoyed. The little jackass ruined my shower. I hop back in, but stay as far away from him as I can, and keep watch.

The tarantula evidently accepted defeat, because it climbed down off the ceiling, and tried to come into the stall with me... only to realize, too late, that the shower walls are not climbable. I feel there should have been a very tiny "Oh shi--!" as it tumbled into the small crack between the shower and bathroom wall.

I didn't see it again, so I can only assume it found its way back outside where it belongs.

And never tries to get in my house again.


...And, for the record, the idiot daddy longlegs needed to be rescued five minutes later. Because they are dumb, and it tried to rappell into my hair.

Nearly every review I have seen for The Avengers has, thus far, been positive.

It doesn't premiere here until mid next week.

Yesterday, my mom called me and said, "Squeeky had to go to the doctor today."

"Why," asked the kiffies, "did he fall off the roof, again?"

"No, he couldn't walk."

Squeeky, in his infinite ability to get into every imaginable bad situation, had gotten into a fight. His leg was... well, let's just say that he was doing a great impression of a pirate. Nothing broken or missing, but certainly out of working order.

Laying in bed, looking at the clock, and realizing that you're not getting to sleep that night.

That just happened.

I have a full 5 hours of class, straight, tomorrow. Three of those are delicate labwork with bacterial cultures.

1) School is eating me alive. With only 1 1/2 quarters left in my college career, this is getting ridiculous and stressful.

2) Hermes is doing well, and is at least giving me something to look forward to when I get home.

3) Comics are one of the few things keeping me sane, lately. Just picked up Winter Soldier, and I like it a lot. The news that DC is releasing a Watchmen prequel... not so much.

4) Pretty sure I splattered some form of horrid bacterial soup on my pants, today. That stain will be interesting to explain.

So. Yesterday was... interesting.

Because Monday was a holiday, our school made Tuesday into a Monday schedule. So, when these here kiffies got up on Wednesday, they were working on a Tuesday schedule.

I got up early to go to the wrong class, then panicked because it was wrong, forgot important paperwork that I needed for a meeting, and then forgot about the SOPA blackout and logged on for the briefest of time before it clicked that, yes, it was Wednesday, and I logged back off in disgust. No nets for kiffies!

BTW, (willingly) doing without the tubes? Torture.

The lady who was supposed to come and see Hermes never materialized. More to the point, she has so far not returned any of my calls, nor the email I sent with pictures of Hermes, not even to just say, "Nope, that's not my bird."

I am generally very accommodating about things like this, but something about this whole situation just rubbed me wrong. So, fuck it all. Fella's mine now.

Given his penchant for random, loud, repetitive outbursts (cocktiels!), this may not be a good thing...
