We interrupt this regularly-scheduled con report to bring you another round of Chad Darnell's 12 of 12. This month, the 12th landed on a trip to the Renaissance Festival! :D

Pics! )

I ended up leaving pretty soon after this, which was odd, I normally stay until the closing cannon, but I wasn't feeling up to it. The sky had clouded over and things were more comfortable, but the few hours of really bright sun and humidity earlier in the afternoon really did me in. I'm very glad I decided to head for home right away, because I spent the rest of the evening being sick from heat stroke. Yaaaay. -_- At least I have another trip to look forward to. If the weather's like this again next weekend I need to remember to bring a fan.

I'm back again for Chad Darnell's 12 of 12. This month the 12th fell on a work day again, so the pics are pretty blah. Last set working my current job, though.

see 'em )

Next month I will most likely be at the Renaissance Festival on the 12th, so the pictures should be more than awesome enough to make up for this boring batch. :D

You may have noticed I'm barely around lately. It's a combination of factors. I became really disenchanted with the world at large recently, but I've mostly gotten over that by deciding to be over it. So now it's more that LJ doesn't grab my interest like it used to. These days I'm more interested in doing things than being social, so I end up not visiting here for days at a time and feeling like I'm always behind and out of the loop. I can't remember what I used to post here, aside from con reports and fics, or think of what I should post. It's been mostly Twitter for me, since I can fire off a one-liner there and move on instead of spending half an hour trying to come up with enough material for an LJ post. I'll probably get interested in LJ again at some point, but in the meantime it's going to be few and far between from me. :\

In fact, I can't even remember what else I was going to say in this post. Oh, I got a new computer and a bunch of new software toys to play with, but since it runs Vista, I have a lot of headaches to solve before you'll see any product. I sprained my knee last weekend falling down the stairs at my friend's place, and it's still costing me a lot of sleep. I have a meeting tomorrow to figure out the schedule for transitioning to my new job, but I'll be in my current job through the end of August, and probably on regular day hours for training for a couple of months after that. I'm hoping to still fit in the Discworld convention (and a meetup with [ profile] alexielnet!) but that hinges on what New Boss says tomorrow. I'm very tired, and old anchors are weighing me down. But I've been writing again, and I have a bunch of new project ideas I can't wait to sink my teeth into.

These are very late, but I took the pictures, I'm posting them. :P I don't have the original files on me to get the timestamps, but if I don't go ahead with this post now, I'll probably never do it. So here goes. I'll edit the times in later.

My knee is still iffy. I did end up seeing a doctor before work on Monday, but since there wasn't any swelling and it moved OK in all the normal ways, he pronounced it a sprain that should be fine in a couple of weeks. It's been a week now, though, and I'm not sure if it's really that much better. Sleeping is still a struggle and mobility comes and goes. If it's not significantly better by Wednesday, I may have to go back in for an MRI. :\

After an unintentional hiatus, I finally completed another 12 of 12! (Holy shit, he's been undergoing chemo?? Good to see him posting 12s again, but damn...)

pictures! with bonus con swag! )

It's amusing the things you find when you're packing. My long-lost Sailor Pluto keychain, for example (yay!). A wedding invitation I never sent back the RSVP to (I suck). Some gift checks from my grandma that I never cashed (I really suck). My Kunzite/Endymion pr0n. >.> And the Dark is Rising series, which I didn't even realize I owned.

I've mostly just been packing, and stuff. I paid my first month's rent and picked up the keys for the new place. It's just as gorgeous as it was when I first saw it, and just as scary. I'm staying positive, though. I crunched the numbers again and I can easily afford it as long as I don't go nuts with my money. Or lose my job. Utilities seem to be having trouble recognizing that my new address does, in fact, exist. I suppose that's what happens when you live in a manufactured community.

I completely forgot about the 12 of 12 this month. I opened up my date book on Friday, noticed it was the 13th, and said "Crap." It was going to be my last 12 in my current home, too. Oh well.

What else was I going to say? Oh, I saw Watchmen. Enjoyed it a lot. Looking forward to reading the graphic novel. Also saw Push. Enjoyed it more than Watchmen, to be honest. Both fun flicks, though. It's good to see Dakota Fanning having a career.

Also, a lesson. Never check your LJ on your sister's computer and forget to clear the browser history.

I didn't bother redoing our dry-erase calendar this month, so some reminders for myself this week:

Sunday: Anime Detour staff meeting, AnimeIowa hotel reservation, packing and work. Pick up a final batch of boxes. Pick up package from apartment office, notify them of moving plans.
Monday: 3 PM insurance appointment, 4 PM massage appointment, work
Tuesday: Packing and work
Wednesday: Drop off first month's insurance payment. Pester Comcast. Get all furniture ready to move. Empty all drawers, clear and clean all surfaces, disassemble what can be disassembled. Mail change of address notices.
Thursday: Move
Friday: Get paid, pay bills. Visit license center and bank to have address changed. Change address for other services online. Get the broken computer problem sorted once and for all. New phone line being turned on. Cable hookup appointment?
Saturday: Erick's Anime Detour pre-party
Sunday: Anime Detour badge assembly party

I just noticed the top cloud in my icon disappears sooner than it should when it passes behind the dragon, and now I can't stop noticing it. Hate when that happens.

I think I'm getting worse at this 12 of 12 thing. Either that or my life is getting even more boring. :|

I don't think I'm going to submit this set to Chad even though it's done on time, because lame pictures are lame. Hooray for being done and posted on time, though? I think next month I'll try a different tactic if the 12th is another normal day.

Sleep time.

I did actually do the 12 of 12 the past two months, but never got around to posting the pictures. Before I end up racking up yet another unposted set, let's do them now so I'll be ready for tomorrow. (Tomorrow's the 12th, folks! It's January, perfect time to join in! :D)

November pics )

December pics )

And that gets me all caught up so I'm ready for a new 12 tomorrow. :D
dejana: (Alucard)
I'm early with Chad Darnell's 12 of 12 today because I'm working days tomorrow, I'm off to bed as soon as I hit Post. Just as well, too, because I'm totally worn out from the weekend. @_@

Sleep time. (Self-reminder thanks to a commercial: Pick up Sleeping Beauty.)
dejana: (oh noes!)
Today was the 12th, so here I am again with Chad Darnell's 12 of 12. Argh, someone remind me I still haven't finished my MiniMoonCon report! >.<

pictures )

So that was today. Renaissance Festival again tomorrow! :D
dejana: (Calvin - zzzz)
Yesterday was the 12th, and as you know, that means Chad Darnell's 12 of 12.

After having something healthier to eat and taking some ibuprofen for my fever, I felt a lot better. :) Still, I'm looking forward to a full 8 hours of sleep.

Coming to you from the avenue outside the local Holiday Inn >.> it's Chad Darnell's 12 of 12! Finally, it fell on one of my days out of town. This week I've been visiting friends and family up north. :D

pics pics pics! )

And there you have it.
dejana: (Jetto Ninjin!)
Okay, time for an extremely belated 12 of 12. I took these pictures on the 12th, but I went out of town that night and couldn't get the internet to work at my friend's place. It's far too late to get on the links list, but I'm still going to post these.

pics! )

Yesterday was the 12th, so here we are again with Chad Darnell's 12 of 12! It was another work day, and a night shift to boot... I think I'm cursed to never have the 12th fall on a day I'm visiting up north or on vacation. -_-

dejana: (Believe - You Can Do It)
It's time once again for Chad Darnell's 12 of 12! I remembered this time! But unfortunately, I had work... so these pictures are pretty boring. -_-;;

I've decided to try Chad Darnell's 12 of 12. I learned about it from [ profile] amazonqueenkate.

Could be better, but it was my first try. ^^;; Now I'm off to read some more Hogfather and cry.
