Day Thirty: Post About Anything You Want

Well, as usual, this is a day late. I had a hellish few days at work because of Black Friday and all the related shenanigans. I don't really have any idea of what to blog about, so I guess I'll just spew stuff at you.

ReMoPodMo finished:) I had a very productive month. I produced 12 hours of podfic, 2 completed stories and I recorded another 4 because I was in the zone. So I clocked about 100 hours of podfic production between recording (28 hours of raw files), editing, making coverart, pre-reading, final listen-thrus, uploading, posting and all the other things we do.

My podfic 1year anniversary was the 23rd. I really wanted to publish my long project (which will be posted either tonight or tomorrow) on that day, but LIFE happened. I've been working my ass off the whole month and sometimes I'm just too tired to do everything I want to do. 

I haven't been reading much, but I have about 30 open fics, a lot of them TW Fall Harvest fics to read. I'm going to go easy in December. I'm a bit burnt out from ReMo. So I plan on doing a lot of reading in December. As far as regular reading, I did finish Temeraire #3 and #4 as well as both of Jay Northcote's books.

I've been watching a lot of tele during my podficcing breaks. Dancing With The Stars and The Voice were my guilty pleasures. DWTS ended, and The Voice has only a few weeks left. Downton also ended, leaving me engrossed in Elementary, Sons Of Anarchy, Bones, AHS:Coven, and Reign. I'm not sure if I'm going to continue with the latter though, because it has yet to really hook me. I also caught up on Supernatural S8 and have, for the first time ever, become current with the watching of the show. So I finally know what everyone is talking about. It's so weird. 

I haven't watched any films at all lately. If you'd have asked me like 2 years ago if that was possible, I would have laughed in your face. There was a time when all I did is watch movies. Back in the Blockbuster days. But yea, I think I'm over it. ALSO. Blockbuster announced they are closing their remaining stores. A part of me jumped for joy since they royally fucked me. Then the other part of me was sad for all the people still working there that are about to go through what I did. Also, all of those childhood memories of going to the video store...it's all very sad. 

I think in the next few days I'm going to do an analysis of my first year of podfic production. I looked over my spreadsheet the other day and I know I produced 70+ hours in year 1, but I would really like to look at the whole picture. Look at downloads/kudos/comments/length/fandom etc. I know people usually do an end of the year wrap up, so maybe I will count those first few weeks of 2012 and do my end of year/first year all rolled into one. 

Um, what else?? My newest obsession is Stilinskicest. But really, that's not surprising. ShameOTP blog has been a breath of fresh air in my daily internet routine. Bless Yue for inviting me to it. (I'm not sure if it's a secret thing, but I see other people in my twitter timeline talking about it, so I'm *assuming* it's okay to mention). Blessblessbless the authors writing for that ship. 

I think I'm going to record some Buster/Timmy Baseball RPF fic next. Anna_unfolding is a goddess and made the best podfic I've ever heard in my whole damn life, and now I have a mad hankering to do one too. <3

I ate a guinness caramel chocolate bar last night, and I think my tastebuds had orgasms. 

Ohhh. And I finally finished making my 1000 origami cranes. I've been folding them for about 4-5 months I think. Usually to distract myself or while I'm watching tele. Now I have to decide what to do with them. I wrote my wish on the 1000th one and folded it up and mixed it in the box. So I hope it comes true. 

This 30 day journal meme has been fun. It's nice to know that people are reading them, perhaps learning more about me. I don't think I'm terribly interesting or anything, but I am an open book and love to share. I enjoy reading everyone's journals and comments. I quite like my little place in the DW world. Next time I think I'm going to do a 30 day photography blog challenge. It came to my attention how many of these blog challenges their are, and weirdly I quite enjoyed ending my day over on Dreamwidth, posting these little daily tidbits. 

That's all i've got for now. Thanks for reading:)

Day Twenty-Nine: A Picture Of You As A Child

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away....

mistressjinx: purple octi (Default)
Day Twenty-Eight: Dreams
Write about a dream you've had recently or a recurring dream you've had in your life.

I had 2 recurring dreams that started when I was younger. I don't remember the last time I dreamt either one of them, it's probably been years? So I'm not sure if that counts, but at one point in my life they happened regularly. 

The first one started when I was a young child. In the dream I'm in an underwater tank/pool of some sort. I'm dressed in a frilly blue dress (kind of like a doll outfit). I remember--even going into adulthood--that me in the dream was still a child even though I aged for the decade or so that I dreamed it. Also, it was not unusual to me that I breathed water in the dream, that part seemed natural. 
So, the tank didn't open but was large like an olympic swimming pool, and it went deep, like a hundred feet down. There was light in the water, like the surface was near, but deep enough down that I knew I couldn't swim to the top. Deep in the water there were walls that had cages attached to them. They were a prison holding other people, like me. In the dream the cage doors would open and I'd have to swim into the water and try to collect candies (Like M&Ms or Skittles) that were floating. I don't remember eating the candy, but I remember a sense of urgency to collect the candy or perhaps I wouldn't eat. Then when everyone was struggling to get the candy, sharks would be released from tubes in the walls and they would come try and eat us. I would always wake up when I was trying to get back to my cage and I had a shark coming at me. I don't remember feeling like I was caught, but I remember the panic/anxiety of thinking that I was going to die. 

My second recurring dream started when I was a teenager. The dream always started in my bedroom. I would walk a long corridor into my kitchen. Now the house I grew up in had a hallway, but this was like 10x longer in my dream. All the doors to the rooms would be closed as well, and we always left the doors open to every room in my house, so it was really eerie. When I'd get to the end of the hallway I'd have to unlock 20 or so locks on the door opening into the kitchen. When I entered the kitchen my father would be there, shirtless smoking a cigar and sitting at the breakfast nook table. He'd be on a stool, dangling his feet. I'd then ask him where the smoke in the kitchen was coming from, and he'd tell me to turn around as see for myself. When I turned, Hitler was standing at the main stove, stirring a huge vat of something cooking with a big wooden spoon. I'd go up to the vat and look down into it and see that all of my dogs were being cooked. I wouldn't see their faces, but I would see their fur twirling around in the soup. I would then wake up. (BTW, I had 7 Lhasa Apso's while I was growing up, and they were the ones in the soup).

SO there you have it. I have no idea if they mean anything, or what it says about me. But those fuckers haunted me for years and years. 

mistressjinx: Tyler (Tyler)
Well, what do you know....I missed a day again. Life, man. I was so engrossed in finishing my new podfic, that I forgot to post my journal challenge yesterday. So today you get 2. (Is anyone actually reading these anyway?)

Day Twenty-Six: 
Someone Who Fascinates You

Benazir Bhutto. What a woman. I remember when she was assassinated, I watched the news report and cried for long time. She was the example of a strong woman. I've read her all of her books. She is the true definition of a hero. What she accomplished in her too short life...like whoa. Don't think I need to say much more. But if I could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, I'd choose her, and hug her, and thank her for making an impact on me and the world and Pakistan.

Day Twenty-Seven: 3 Confessions

1. I have a scrapbook of wedding things. Although I'm not convinced I'll ever get married. I made it back in the day when it was a possibility. My colors were black, white, red. The wedding dress I picked out was red with black trimming. My veil was black. The food was from the Frida Kahlo cookbook. It would've been a kick-ass party.

2. I almost died a couple of years ago. I had weight-loss surgery because I thought I couldn't do it on my own, and I got such a massive infection that I almost died because I didn't seek medical attention straight away. They had to remove my lap-band and I had a giant hole in my stomach for months afterwards that had to have a wound-vac attached to it so it could suck out my infection. It was awful. The worst time of my life. It was after my recovery that I said FUCK IT, I don't need surgery to lose weight. And I've lost 130lbs since. 

3. I'm losing my house. I bought a house a few years ago when I had a great job and it seemed everything was wonderful. Then I got laid off. And now after years of struggling to keep the house when I can no longer afford it, the bank is foreclosing on me. So yea. Awesome. But don't worry. This isn't a woe is me story. I'm okay. It's just one more curveball, I'll handle this just like I handle everything else. And perhaps it might be nice to not be in debt and be so worried all the time. Perhaps it's actually for the best.

Day Twenty-Five: Favorite Quote

Man...I'm seriously over thinking this, because I have so so so many favorite quotes from writers, books, tv shows, movies, songs, fic....I just don't know what to put. 

I guess it sort of changes with my mood...but right now, in this moment, I really like this quote:

"The secret of joy is the mastery of pain."
--- Anais Nin

Day Twenty-Three: What Is Your Spirit Animal?

Oooo. I already have an answer for this. When I read His Dark Materials when I was younger, I decided my daemon would've been an arctic fox. I love going to zoos and I have a fond childhood memory of going to the San Diego Zoo and falling in love with the arctic fox. Like we had a legit moment together. He was being flirty flirty with me, running back and forth and preening for my attention. I took a gazillion pictures of him. Anyway. Like all the animals ignored me, except that fox. And I stood at his enclosure forever while people came and went, and he totes ignored them and just pranced over to me and made eyes with me the whole time. 

He was like the best part of that whole trip for me. I fell in love with the little guy. So when I was a kid I looked up everything I could on arctic foxes and they became my animal. My power/spirit/daemon animal. 

Last year I went back to the zoo and passed the Polar Bears to find the arctic fox and even though it wasn't the same dude, we had a moment....and it was awesome:) I'm 32 and I still have my arctic fox plushie that my dad bought me like 25 years ago in the gift shop. 

Look at these cutie pies:

Day Fifteen: 10 Guilty Pleasures
I don't feel shame or guilt about much. What I do feel shameful about is spending money when I shouldn't. So most of my list is centered around that.

1. Tattoos. I'm a sucker. When ever I have some extra cash, I get a little ink done. I have a lot of tattoos (and piercings...and body modifications). A LOT.

2. Dancing With The Stars. Yea. I watch it. And sometimes....The Voice too. :O

3. Java chip frappuccino's with 2 extra shots. FUCK it's expensive. But it's a caffeine party in my mouth.

4 . Top shelf gin. Hendricks Gin is my shit. As Dorcas on Lark Rise to Candleford would say...."it's my only weakness". (10points if you know what any of that means)

5. Dungaree Dolly purses. I might have a bit of an addiction. Not sorry. Her handmade bags are the fucking bee's kneez.

6. Sushi. I can't afford to eat out. But daaaaamn, when I do, I go all out. 

7. Daily Polar Pops. Our big gas station in T-town is Circle K. They have 79¢ giant-ass fountain sodas. So yea. I partake on the daily. I'm a super healthy eater. So it's my one dietary indulgence. And I only drink diet pepsi. So whatevs.

8. Henry Rollins's books. That dude writes like 3 books a year. I buy every single one of them. 

9. Gossip blogs. I can't help myself from looking at those car wrecks. So sue me.

10. Jordan almonds. I like to suck on things. What can I say?

I'm not calling you a liar, just don't lie to me. Start wearing purple, wearing purple, starting wearing purple for me now. I like the way she shake that jelly jelly jelly (in and out, in and out).

 Day Nine: Your Five Favorite Blogs

1. Big Shoe Diaries aka Colby Keller's blog. He is a ridiculous human being. I LOVE HIM TO DEATH. My favorite parts...probably Books For Boners (You send him a book, he poses naked with it and his erect peen makes a guest appearance) and I See Dicks (Colby can spot phallic shapes every and anyhwere). He's a cultured dude. I love reading his words. 

2. DevilDoll's Tumblr She's an amazing and truly fascinating gal. She's a great writer! And what I've learned most about this beautiful soul? She loves horses, grilled cheese sandwiches and Teen Wolf. 

3. Fuck Yeah Teen Wolf Incest Do I even need to elaborate?

4. Vintage Gal What I really love about this blog is that she isn't just reblogging retro photographs. She actually obtains each of the images she posts. All of her content is posted with the motive of preserving these photos (film posters, actors headshots, burlesque performers, celebrity candids from a different era, old horror flicks, pin-ups etc) for modern consumption. I dig it. Plus. I reblog the shit out of her. 

5. All The Bryler Talk Ugggg. I'm not proud of this. But I legit love this gossip blog. Like I don't *like* gossip, but I find myself drawn to this stinkin blog each day. I can't actually tell you I care about either one of the actors, because I don't. I just get deeply into reading the anon comments and seeing how wrapped up people are in it. It's shameful. I'm full of shame. But it's like a car wreck, I can't look away. *hides*
