It's too late to go print my promotional posters for class in the morning. BUT I've discovered that my HP Printer will do the job fine. I may have to tile one of them, but that's perfectly acceptable. It saves me so much time and stress. The lab hours for the design lab are only 9-11 tonight, so there is a good chance I wouldn't get to print anyway if there are other students in there. Plus the gas it takes to get out there is horrendous. Now I can procrastinate as late as I want to and still print them myself. And I have my rice pudding with me. XD

I've done it before, but it's been a while. I'm going to try to survive the next 10+ hours on TWO hours of sleep (maybe less). The wedding is this weekend, a project is due in the next... hour, and (THANK GOD), I went to finish my painting last night and a fellow student informed me that's not due until tuesday, and not tomorrow! So I'll try to stay awake for class, go buy a dress for the rehearsal dinner and then come home and CRASH.

What the hell Capcom? Who the hell is this guy? - and don't say Dante, 'cause this is not our Dante.

We're back and in one piece. White Russian's own me, as do Bloody Mary's (and Pepto). I'm tired as shit and just busy, busy, thinking about the wedding next weekend. Plus school project and stuff that are due. I've got loads to do in graphic design and my painting is due thursday. I forgot to go to class last thursday so I hope my honey hasn't... umm, soured or whatever it is that honey does when it's been left out too long. ^^

OH, and the new billboards are up for the store I work for! I did the initial design and then my bosslady sent them to our ad people and they fiddled with them a bit. It didn't change very much. I'm super happy though. Can you image seeing something you made on you computer on a huge ass billboard? It's crazy. XD

Me? I'm anxious in general. I'm switching back to contact lens, 'cause I just look ridiculous in my thick glasses. ^^ All I needed was a a break from contacts for a while (and I didn't have any money to buy anymore). I went to the doctor and I'm trying to get my body back in order. The anemia is loads better. I've got a follow-up in three months so hopefully my levels will be replenished by then. The pharmacist said that iron takes a while to build back up, especially is your a woman who is continually losing it. Which is why I'm now on a three-month bc. Simply, I need to keep all the blood I've got. Ah, the wonders of being a woman.

The aftertaste of my Iron Pills tastes like old cherrios. It's quite disgusting. Yay for anemia!

I've got a few things on my plate that I need to write, but I thought I'd add this little thing I wrote in 20 minutes. It starts as a prompt statement almost then I develop it a bit more. I'll rewrite the beginning if I decide to pursue it. XD

Possible Sherlock ficlet under the cut, if you want to have a go at it and tell me what you think... )

Oh and to my few Sherlock friends, [ profile] conjure_lass, [ profile] madrona_8 and [ profile] discedes. I'm willing to take request from you guys if you want anything in particular.

If you haven't noticed, Martin Freeman has taken over my userpics.

Also, I finally watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter is one of the sexiest things I've seen in a long time. And his garter belt - *dies*.

Oh and Charles Gray, who plays the narrator/criminologist on The Rocky Horror Picture Show, was so damn familiar, but I couldn't place him. Well, now I know. He's MYCROFT on the Granada Productions of Sherlock Holmes! How brilliant is that!

Watch it to see MYCROFT BLOODY HOLMES do the Time Warp on top of his desk. It's brilliant, I tell you.

I've just made a startling discovery. Well for myself anyway.

When I started watching the BBC Sherlock, I had no clue who Benedict Cumberbatch was. I was quite sure I'd never lain eyes on him before. But I just found out that I have. I watch the Discovery Channel frequently and at one point I was watching Hawking, which was based off of the early life of Steven Hawkings. I saw just a few parts of the show and thought nothing of. But I just looked at Cumberbatch's work and he was young Steven Hawking in Hawking. There was youtube clip of and when I saw him I was quite dumbfounded. LOL.

Yeah, thought I'd share my revelation.

Why do guys have awesome shoes with no female equivalent? I think it's unfair that a style of shoe (this style in particular) should be limited to the male sex. I also think they're bad-ass, but they're for men. Where's the love for the ladies?

Guys, I can't even begin to tell you how bad this week has been. )

Edit: And no, I cannot decide what layout to use. Though, the one right now is pretty cool. I think I'll keep it.

Summer class starts tomorrow. I'm excited/nervous as usual, but I've missed working on school stuff (minus art history!). It's a month long class, 4 hours, MTWTF, Ahhhhh! I've never had a class so long, the longest has probably been 2 hrs and 45mins for a studio class. But 4 hours... this will be a challenge on my concentration and determination - I foresee many cigarette breaks. >.<

On the bright site, I've been making pretty good money so I've splurged. I bought THIS duvet for my bed and the shams are in route. Also, Keep Calm and Carry On by the Ebury Press. Brilliant little book! And The Small Stakes: Music Posters by Jason Munn. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I knew and enjoyed almost every band he's designed posters for. I love this and think it's a awesome addition to my growing design library.

Yep, I think I'm ready for class. XD

Congratulation to Tom Felton for winning the 2010 MTV Movie Award Best Villain Award as 'Draco Malfoy'.

There were, admittedly, much better villains in the category with him, but I'm glad he won nevertheless. XD

F-List Cut

I just cleaned out my f-list. If you've been unfriended by me it's because of the usual suspects: you don't update, you don't comment on my journal, you aren't involved in the fandom anymore, or you've moved off-site. Either way, it was necessary. Feel free to ask me to friend you again if you need to, we can talk about it.

Ooh. That's a tough one.

Likes: Patience, Politeness, Insightful
Dislikes: Pessimistic, bluntness, socially awkward

I'm known for my patience, especially where I work when I deal with older people and confused customers. I just grin and bear it, they can't help it if there are problems. Things slide right off my shoulders and I'm not easily offended or angered unless you really mean to be hateful. My mother taught me and my sister traditional southern manners, Yes ma'am, No ma'am, respect your elders and all that. You'd be surprised how many children these days are missing those qualities. I'd like to think I'm insightful considering that I'm an artist and whatnot. I'm extremely sympathetic and understanding. I can easily imagine myself in your shoes and the struggles you must be facing. It's not pity, it's a mutual understanding of the human condition and it's trials, misfortunes and difficulties.

Likewise, I'm a BIG pessimist. But I justify that by telling people that I do my best thinking under pressure. I'm sure I'll regret this habit when I'm actual working under a serious deadline. I'm reliable to a degree, but don't ask me to do a commission, chances are you'll never see it completed. >.< As I'm sure you've heard me say before, I'm a blunt person. And while you may not notice it here on LJ, my family, friends and coworkers do. I am not afraid to say NO, but I do so politely. I don't always say what I think, but when I do it's pretty straightforward. Indecisive people get on my nerves, like my sister.

As for being socially awkward... well I'm on Livejournal, aren't I? XD

We're back! We ended up staying the night at the beach house. The wind was wicked and I think I'm sunburnt/wind-burnt. My Mom, her best friend, Sam and myself went to Lulu's to eat and I bought my mom her Mother's Day dinner. We did some random shopping in which I spent way too much money and then we bummed it out at the beach house until the sun went down. I enjoyed it. I bring you pictures. Enjoy.

Some photos from the beach... )

I'm a huge movie fan, not geekishly so, but I'm up there. ^^ I'm always in search of new movies to watch, new or old, indie or mainstream, English or Foreign. I'm open to anything except horror really, but I'll watch it if you rec it.

With that being said I'm proposing a mini-meme of sorts. I'll post my list of the top movies I think everyone should see before they die (or go blind, I suppose). In return I hope you (mah supa kool F-list) will take my recommendations and give me yours in return.

  • Fight Club
  • Ghost in the Shell (1995)
  • Elizabeth Town
  • Boondock Saints I & II
  • Dead Poets Society
  • Matrix Trilogy
  • Dune (original and Si-Fi versions)
  • Wimbledon
  • Singin' in the Rain
  • The Cell
  • Pride & Prejudice (2005)
  • The Holiday
  • Chronicles of Riddick (Pitch Black not included)
  • Stigmata (for visual content and not religious content)
I could put many more, but this will suffice for now. Please rec anything, just one or a pagefull - I welcome it all. I'll even take youtube videos that you think I should see, just provide a link in the comment.

Cheers guys!
