Home from the Thanksgiving trip, where the dogs had a ball with Zion and I chatted a surprising amount with Jaime's grandma, so I think it's time for my holiday wishlist! )

Huh.

Just saw a Justin Beiber cardboard standee sitting in a lawn chair.

As a side note, yesterday I made dill pickles with garlic and jalapeno, caramel and caramel-filled apples, and pumpkin spice chocolate chip cookies from fresh pie pumpkin. I'm still tired.
rinnia: (brilliant)

Adapted from vileplumage's idea on tumblr:


1. Give me a pairing and/or fandom.
2. Give me a prompt and/or an AU setting.
3. I'll write you a ficlet and/or draw you a picture.


Boom, bitches. Busy me up.

- So, we moved! Not very far, only about a 45 minute drive, but still. Moving sucks. Ugh. At least it's because Jaime found a job, so now we're both safely away from the horror that is academia. I kind of hate the town we moved to, but that's just because it's not Chicago big and/or interesting. It's really no worse than where we were before. I... yeah. Yeah, that's about it.

- I guess I'm getting married? Jaime and I have been together for over eight years, so it's not like anything's really changing, but... I dunno. We're getting married so I can get health insurance. It kinda sucks. I figured when I did get married it'd be... something. And I was always planning to take his name, but now that it's actually happening, I'm torn. I don't want to go through all the hassle of changing all my official stuff when nothing else is changing. No ceremony, no engagement, no real proposal even. Reality sucks, is the point here, I suppose. I know everyone says this, but I'm planning on only getting married once, and for it to happen with such little fanfare and in relative isolation and for such a mundane, practical reason... damnit. Just. Just damnit.

- I'm hormonal and I forgot to take my meds last night so my brain is a mushed up mess of profanity and nerves and I can't stop crying. Aasdlkfjpaoweijfasdlkfj-
rinnia: (exhausted)
Finally caved and got a tumblr, but Rinnia was taken. D: So I'm Kiwoa!

On Friday, we went to check out an apartment near Jaime's new job, about 45 minutes away from our then-domicile. Ended up moving today. So much packing. I AM TIRED. Plus, no internet until next week, so I'm relying on my phone's 3G to keep me sane. Virtual keyboard - blah.
rinnia: (grin)
Amazon's top recommendation for me is this. The worst part? I'm actually tempted. I mean, it's terrible and, as Jaime put it, looks like something from a magazine for teenage girls, but that's what makes it awesome.

I'm not sure if I'm ashamed of myself or not.
rinnia: (intox)
Quick, out of context peek at a Kane/Toews [livejournal.com profile] kink_bingo fic I'm working on:

Could be worse. Could've traded bodies with a Sedin. )

So tell me - how much do I suck? Oh god, I can't believe I'm writing this.
rinnia: (grin)
Time for some pretty - hockey fan or no, I give to you wonderful eye candy, Blackhawks-style.

Cut for MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF PHOTOS )
rinnia: (blood)
My nose just spontaneously started dripping blood. The fuck.

At least I was done sewing already.
rinnia: (hockey)
One of the early birthday presents Jaime got me was an O Pee Chee 12-13 hobby box. It just arrived yesterday, and when I have a box of cards, I like to open a pack a day to extend the happiness. Today, in my second pack from this box, I got this:

Um. Yeah. Pretty freaking stoked right now.
rinnia: (brilliant)
- This is pretty much the greatest thing ever.
- Working on dolls. They're coming along really nicely, actually.
- Finished and mailed out [livejournal.com profile] jengeorge's Alex Day present. Because I'm an idiot, though, I completely forgot to take any pictures, so I guess that one's not going on the craft blog. Balls.
- Jaime's been giving me my birthday presents early and they are AAAAAWESOME. More on that later when I stop being lazy and take pictures.
- Started collecting series 8 Lego minifigs. So far I've gotten the football player and the robot; I really just want the vampire bat.
- Ecofelt is pretty much the greatest thing ever. Just saying.
- Except maybe for Ken Burns documentaries. I am a boring adult, I guess, because I think they're all fascinating. And Lois Long is my idol now.
rinnia: (psyched)
Got my random shirt from Woot! in the mail today. It's this one. I am pleased.

I am also sick of Monopoly. It makes me inexplicably sad, to the point where I deliberately made a dumb deal than cost me a guaranteed victory because I didn't want to spend an hour just bleeding people dry. I'm voting for Clue next time. Or Cards Against Humanity. No more Monopoly. Harumph.
rinnia: (hot)
Because I haven't been writing... um.. at all, lately, and I really want to be, I both dug up my unused [livejournal.com profile] au_bingo card from a couple years ago and requested a [livejournal.com profile] kink_bingo card. Cut for cards and brainstorming )

I'm also thinking about signing up for Yuletide. I've never done it before, so I'm a bit nervous, but it sounds fun, and I'd kill to read some Goon or Catherine fic. I've exhausted the handful of fics for the former, and literally NOTHING exists for the latter, soooo...
rinnia: (hockey)
I am sick and thus not only sleepy and uncomfortable, but also falling behind in my crafting schedule DAMNIT, and it's a month until my birthday, so... birthday wishlist to cheer me up. Yeah. Whee! )

Addendum to add Tommy Hawk and Pucky the Whale (and maybe also the Connecticut Whale), because HOSHIT MASCOTS YO.

So I hit Week 2 in TWEWY (and can I just say how phenomenal this port is? High price be damned; if you own an iPhone, you should own this game), and I couldn't help taking some screencaps...



Man, I love Joshua.
