(Why are only offline friends commenting on my lyrics-guessing meme post
? Where are all the music fans on my flist? o_O)
I'm so bored lately. I have plenty of stuff to do, but none of it appeals to me. I need something new to get passionate about. :\
I had planned to post bento pictures today, but I ended up with Mystery Bento! Of potential DOOM! Scary mysterious bento... o.o The last two days I got up two hours early to try to make bento for this five-night run I'm in the middle of right now, but I was trying new recipes and totally screwing them up, so as of last night I'd still only managed to finish two bento lunches of the seven I needed. I planned to get up early again today and finish up, now that I had the main courses ready. But as I was waking up today, my sister came in and told me she had finished the bento so I could sleep. She even cleaned up the mess I'd left in the kitchen after last night's disaster. How nice! ^______^
But she forbade me to look in the bento to see what she'd put in there. So I have Mystery Bento of Mysteriousness. There's one in the work fridge right now for later tonight, but I have no idea what's in there. Should be interesting. She also used the as-yet-unused totoro bento box, but she said that one's for Christmas. I'm curious...
Speaking of Christmas, I have some overdue thanks to gush out. ^^ I got holiday cards from amazonqueenkate
. Thanks so much, guys! (I hope I'm not missing anyone, I gathered up all the cards I could find in a hurry before leaving for work this evening.) saphrian
, your handwriting is amazing! I'm so jealous! *_* Mine's so plain and boring. ;_;
I also got a pretty Japanese card from misscheeveeuss
, along with something off my wishlist - a set of four Hello Kitty mayonnaise cups (sauce containers) for my bento boxes! YAY! Thank you so much! Now I can have veggie dip and barbecue sauce and fun stuff like that. :D If anyone else was planning to send me some, don't worry, I can always use more. ^^ (BTW, kelleh... you know there's a translation on the back of the card, right? ^^;)
Speaking of the wishlist meme, I also got two great virtual gifts from heavenly_pearl
. One was the super-happy icon I'm using on this post, which I know I'll find a ton of uses for. ^^ The other was the indulgence of my moment of ego weakness - a page for myself on the Fanhistory wiki. ^^;; link!
Thanks again, Yumeko.
I was thinking about the Fanhistory wiki the last couple of days. I'd been wanting a page there for a while because I'm an attention whore, but it's bad form to make your own pages. Even now, I'd like to add more info to the page, but it seems wrong because it's my
page. Which makes sense, except, is there anyone out there besides me who could write a timeline of my involvement in fandom? It's a big catch-22; it's totally egotistical to write your own pages, but if you don't, the wiki will remain incomplete.
I like the Fanhistory wiki and I wish there was more information on there, but I have a feeling many people who would like to help are running into the same problems. The only person you're really fully qualified to write about is yourself. Still, it would be good to get some more information on there, particularly about modern Sailormoon fandom. There's not a lot on there about the fandom as I've known it in recent years. (And I could be wrong, but I believe I'm friends with most of the key figures in SM fandom today as far as fanfiction is concerned, and none of you are on there.)
So I was thinking... what if a bunch of us got together and added to the wiki with information about each other? That way we wouldn't be writing about ourselves, but the info would still get in there, which I feel is important for some strange reason. (Can't really explain why myself. ^^; But I know there are a lot of people who believe SM fandom died years ago and have no idea there is still fic being written. Things are definitely going downhill, and I think it would be right to have a "We were here" stamp, somewhere.) Anyone out there interested in collaborating on this?
