I moved. It went fine. Almost completely settled in save for reorganizing the bedroom, which is going to be a chore, since that's where I shoved everything that I wasn't using immediately. Whee. The bookshelves are all set up, but I'm not sure I like where they are, but what can you do? Limited space and all of that rot.

Adam is, of course, quite comfortable no matter where he is. He has his food dish that is still being periodically refilled and he has some pillows to fur and to chill out on. That makes for a happy cat, I've learned. His water fountain has been set up. Yes, my cat has a water fountain, to encourage him to drink more water. That's what his old vet recommended, and so I got to take his babbling brook from my sister's house. It's very nice to listen to though, now that it's in the front room. I might have to set up my other decorative fountain now.

Olivia continues to redistribute cat toys between her house and mine. Everytime she comes over, she brings a new toy over for him. What's really funny is watching her run around trying to get him to play with her. He tolerates it for a while, but then he's obviously Had Enough, and starts to ignore her. I told Cory that Olivia needs a dog that will actually play with her.

I think I've somehow lost my entire collection of lami posters. Not sure how this happened, or where the hell they have gone to. Which is disappointing. But then, I wonder... am I out of that phase where I decorate with anime posters everywhere? I still mean to frame my Aspen posters and hang those. Maybe my Sandman by Yoshitaka Amano poster. Hmm.

Anyhow. Thanksgiving was fine. Turkey was fabulous, and yes, I'm just that amazing at cooking that it came out wonderful. Had a lot of good food and the company was pretty good too, even if I had just met Mandy's two housemates. Not much else to say about that, really. Christmas is coming, shopping will be done on Thursday.

Tomorrow, I take my iPod into the Apple store to have it looked at.

* Moving into a one bedroom apartment. Fifth floor, southern facing windows, much larger. I'll get the layout all figured out soon. Super excited about this. I plan on saving money to get a real bed.

* The cable company will make me go 2 days (gasp!!) without internets in the new place. Fuckers.

* The cable company cannot switch my phone service over until the 30th. I don't know why. Not a big deal.

* Adam will not be able to fur the fuck out of my stuff anymore. This will make him sad, I'm sure.

* My iPod has to go to the doctor and I'm taking it to the University Village store. It was repeatedly crashing iTunes earlier, and it wouldn't sync. Everytime I plug it in, I have to restore it.

* Neighbours who do not have awesome stereo systems should not try to start music wars with those who do. It will not end well. I plugged in my 2.1 desktop speakers, put the subwoofer on his wall, and let it rip. Techno and Bollywood. Fuck you, dude.

* Level 47 on Aion, should be 48 before the move. When I get back, everyone will probably be 50, and they'll have to wait on me to go to Dark Poeta. Haha. Sucks to be them. Absinthe is finally in armor that's not pink.

* Kyle moved back home, has a new job, looking into a second part time things, and sounds worlds happier now than he has been in several months. Which in turn makes me happy for him, so it's this circle of happiness that happens like that.

* Thanksgiving will be at Mandy's place. I will still be zee cook, as to be expected. It's fun, and I never have to do the dishes. It's awesome.

* I still want a netbook. Now more than ever, because I keep wanting to write late at night, but then I realize that I'd have to boot up my laptop. With a netbook, at least, I can still be on IRC and talking to people when I have to mail off my laptop to Gateway to be fixed since it keeps overheating. Which sucks.

* Laptop is overheating when I game. Which sucks, because it's a gaming rig, and shouldn't. My daddy says it shouldn't, so I believe him.

* Already done my Christmas shopping, just have to hit the order button, which happens in December. Not sure if I'll do Christmas cards.

* I'm running a slaver ring and a crime syndicate on BDI. I finally get to knock up my elf chick. Sweet. Baby-daddy is 5000 years old. Freakin' elves.

Happy Holidays folks, hope you're all happy and safe this season.

Thanks for being awesome friends.
tokimi: (apathy)
It's been a while since last I updated. Not a lot's really been going on in that time, so I guess that's why I've not been updating. I'll try to outline things I've been doing in that time, though.

I moved into my own place at the end of October. About a week afterwards, I bought a laptop, sorta spur of the moment, but it turned out to be a lot better than I had wanted, with a video card and 2gb of RAM. I love it. I named it Surprise, following the My Little Pony theme of my other electronics. (Desktop was Firefly, the iPod is Melody, the network is Dream Valley. You get the idea.) I've pretty much decided not to invest in another desktop at this time, though, I'm still trying to fix the old one. Surprise came with Vista, which I'm still trying to figure out to a manner of my liking. There was a lot to turn off, like the ever so annoying User Account Control thingy, which was pretty much "we'll stop you from installing this crap even though we know you want to because you're an admin and are trying to install". So after disabling that, came some other annoying tweaks to take care of. I think I have it how I like it.

Thanksgiving was an affair between my sisters, my brother in law, and my niece and I. My mother was specifically not invited, and in fact, asked not to come at all. I didn't precisely make an ultimatum regarding it, but I didn't want to be around when she was. It was relatively quiet, save for the late night, early morning freak out from my Homofag. It was a 3-4 hour event, and it was pretty freaky. As it's not my story to tell, I won't be mentioning the details, suffice to say that he was severely injured. He's recovering now, thankfully, and things weren't as bad as we had first thought.

Oh, and my turkey was gorgeous.

December was a slow month. I'm organizing things around here, and trying to get a futon/couch sorta thing. For now, I've got an inflatable matress and that's pretty comfy. It just means I can't host very well here, all things considered. No where for people to sit! Maybe I should go invest in an area rug and a few bean bag chairs. We'll all chill out and drink smoothies and eat cookies, or something.

The problem with moving is that you realize how much crap you don't have, not how much you still have. I lost a lot of things when I was hospitalized, but I only now realize that it's stupid things like cookie sheets and spices, and kitcheny things like that. Yeah, I lost some keepsakes and I miss those greatly, but what can you really do? It's just a matter of building the collection again. Sadly.

Christmas was a lot of fun. Olivia made out like a bandit, being the only grandkid on both sides of the family. This year, she got the idea of what Christmas was, at least as far as the gift giving thing was. She didn't need much prompting for opening things after the first few times. I got a few movies, a gridle. Tim's mom sent me cookies. My mom got me this... vacuum-y thing, which is pretty cool, but we didn't really understand why she got the same thing for my sisters. Eric sent me this really cute, carved rose quartz parrot, compromising between my eternal search for diamonds and Murphy. I have yet to shop for him.

Thanks to everyone I got Christmas cards from. It was appreciated. I think I got all of mine sent out. I'm fairly certain anyway.

Mandy's birthday was a lunch affair and pretty quiet as well. Just us again, my sisters, niece and Tim. Mandy and I chilled out on the bus ride down to Southcenter, trying to cut down on Cory and Tim's commute. They ended up coming up to Seattle, anyhow. I borrowed Pan's Labyrinth from Mandy, let her borrow Stardust, and Cory borrow the Prestige. Movie swaps are awesome.

I've rekindled a few friendships with some people who I'd thought were lost at some point or another. Which is good. I'm not as crazy as we'd all thought. I've gotten closer to some people, more distant with others. Ebbing and flowing, as it seems that friendships do. Can't always fix them, though we can certainly try.

Still writing somewhat, though I haven't done any short stories lately. A piece or two for a particular RP storyline.

Flipping through some of the movie channels, I just flipped into Flash Gordon. Another awesomely bad movie. I said the same thing about Cry-Baby when I saw that on TV as well. I love these awesomely bad movies. The costumes in Flash Gordon are awesome. Lots of rhinestones and satin on the chicks. Pretty makeup.

Oh well, now I'm mostly just rambling. I suppose there's other things to write about but my attention's wandering now.
tokimi: (tired)
Still trying to kick this cold thing I have. The symptoms change on a daily basis and it's driving me nuts. First it looked like strep, sore throat, no congestion, fever... the next day, no sore throat, but I can't really talk well. Today, just sorta run down, but functioning, and no sore throat, but still somewhat hoarse. It's lame. 1000mg of vitamin C every few hours and loads of orange juice. I'mma murder that cold.

Feeling better though.

Got my friend Christmas card of the season, from [livejournal.com profile] snowbitch. I need to get mine and mail them out before I keep putting them off.
tokimi: (blushing)
Christmas time is coming, sometime after Thanksgiving which is only next week for the Americans. So, that means Christmas cards for people.

Screening all comments. If you want a Christmas card, reply with your address. If you don't feel that's secure enough, you can email me at tokimi @ livejournal . com
