Doujinshi Sale!


Con time is coming and I am broke so I'm selling some of my doujinshi. All doujinshi are in mint condition unless other wise stated. They have been kept in acid free covers with backs. My home has one cat but she isn't allowed anywhere near my collectables, so no worries there. I accept paypal and well concealed cash (at your own risk). If paying by cc or dc paypal I do charge $.30+2.9% just to cover what paypal charges me. Shipping is done via flat rate priority post for $5.00. I am willing to negotiate prices and I will be willing to trade only for FMA Hermaphrodite vol. 5 or vol. 10. All doujin contain shonen ai or yaoi. I will not sell to anyone under 17. If your birthdate is not on your profile, I will not sell to you. When inquiring about an item please include your email address and the item.
Check out the doujinshiCollapse )

Well, I guess I had to do this sometime. *sigh* It's really one of those C. Y. A. things. It has come to my attention that not all people want to be your friend and not all people who claim to be your friend really are. I hope this will let me weed out both kinds of people. Don't get me wrong. I haven't had anyone say anything nasty to me or try to lecture me on what I have in my journal. It's just safer this way. If you want to see my journal, just comment here, tell me a bit about yourself, and I will add you.

Marry, Shag, or Cliff

The game is Marry, Shag or Cliff. You comment, I give you three characters, you decide which character you'd marry, which one you'd shag, and which one you'd throw off a cliff.

[info]darkblysse  gave me Roy, Russell, and Havoc

I found a charger!

W00T! I am back online! I found a laptop charger and on a Friday the 13th, too. ^^ I was grocery shopping and went to double check electronics and there it was. I had called just the other day and they told me they didn't carry them. Figures. Wal-Mart is known for not even checking. *rolls eyes*  I ought to know that since I used to work there. It always killed me how people wouldn't even go check and tell people they either had or didn't have things. No complaints or hard feelings on my end - Oh no!  I'm just glad they had it. It was still bloody expensive but at least I didn't have to wait 6 months. I put it on my charge card. *cringe* I said I was going to stop using them but I figured this was an emergency.

Aww...This sucks!

Hissy fit

I'm having the worst luck this week. *sigh* I'm just lucky that I don't live near any boulders or one would probably land on my head. My Dad is getting worse. I honestly thought I was going to have to call 911 last night. Now he's refusing to to back to the doctor. I'm worried and frustrated. My Dad is a big guy and I can't move him, even when he's sick. That's enough to stress me out, especially since there is no one to stay home with him, but there is more.

I discovered that my charging light was out on my laptop even though it was plugged in. I touched the cord where it connects and blue sparks went everywhere. Yes, I did get a nasty shock that left a nasty little black mark on my hand. I used some electrical tape and Dad's instructions to try to fix it but it kept coming apart. The laptop is dead as a doornail now and with the charger's last come apart I don't think it's going to be running for a while. The replacement charger is $85.97! *dies* I can't find it in any store around here and have to order it through the company website. Guess what. It's out of stock right now! All my important billing info and all my entertainment is in that laptop and they're telling me it could be 6 months before they get my charger back in stock plus two weeks to ship it. O.o They can overnight it when it comes in for an additional $19.99.
Basically this leaves me with my I-pod touch as my only link to the web. Thank God that I-pod has a lj app.

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?
Let's see....I met Dolly Parton when I was a little girl. We were at the opening of her theme park in TN. We were watching her sing and this lady sitting beside us offered me some soda and some chips. She asked if I wanted to meet Dolly, because she could take me back to see her. My parents said I could as long as they could come, too. I can't remember the lady's name now, but she was part of Dolly's family. I want to say her sister. I got to meet Dolly and she was very nice. ^^

I met Anne Rice. My friends and I were shopping at the Montgomery mall. We noticed this massive line and asked one of the people what they were in line for. Anne Rice was inside Books-A-Million, signing books. We all hopped in line, which was at the front of the mall and waited ALL DAY to see her. I was surprised how nice she was after signing books for that long. It was short but I got a copy of "Interview with the Vampire" signed and got to chat for a moment or two.

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry from Aerosmith let me and my bf in when we showed up HOURS early for a concert. They let us watch them warm up. It was awesome! They are soooo sweet!

Vic Mignogna grabbed part of my cosplay at AWA and used it to hit Travis Willingham. LOL. So funny. I still have that cat tail.

Well, I just woke up and feel much better, thank God. I HATE migraines! My friend's grandmother told me to go to the health food store and pick up some feverfew pills this morning. She said she had migraines all her life until an old Indian medicine man told her to chew feverfew. She started taking the pills as soon as she found them and says she hasn't had one since. I hope this will work for me, too. I'm going to stop by the health food store on the way home and pick some up.
I have my third migraine headache in four days. I can barely stand to look at my screen to see what I'm typing. I've taken Excederin Migraine since my doctor insists on taking me off of everything that has ever worked. Turns out the pills I used to take can cause heart problems in those who don't already have them and I already have one. My doctor freaked and ordered me to stop taking them. I can't take the prevenitive that I was asking about either for the same reason.  Damn it! Double and triple damn it! My head hurts and nothing works that I can take. I haven't had this many migraines since I was in grade school. My mother wants me to go and have more tests done but they couldn't come up with anything last time. I've been scanned six ways from Sunday, told to thin my hair, written a funky ass prescription for glasses that make my head hurt even worse (and yes, I have given myself time to get used to them. Three months of Hell and I threw those crappy things in the back of my closet.), and been told to eliminate stress, as if anyone can eliminate stress! I've kept food diaries to check to see if I have any food triggers beyond the ones I already know about. I hate food triggers. Orange juice, figgs, and cinnimon gum set me off everytime so I avoid them like the plauge even though I would kill for some good OJ. *sigh*  I haven't found anything else that causes the headaches. I don't know what I'm going to do, but something has got to give! I can't go on like this!  I do hope I will wake up headache free in the morning. Dad spent all day putting up a huge bookcase/entertainment center in my room. I have stuff all over my room but I'm going to have to wait until in the morning to put anything away.

To make matters worse, my best friend made things a bit harder on me before she left. I know she was just playing around, but still. *shakes head* Knowing how anti-yaoi my mother is she picks up a little art print that I keep on my  night table and asked me who the girl was in the picture. When I told her they were both guys she totes the thing straight into my parents part of the house and asks my mom if they look like a boy and a girl or two guys. Then she asks "Don't they look like they are in love? Look they're holding hands and looking into each others eyes. They're blushing! She (meaning me) says they're both guys! " and then she giggles like hell. Yes, this is the same girl that knows all about my yaoi stash and has promised me that she will "take care" of everything if anything happens to me. I asked her why and she just laughed and says she meant no harm. I do believe her. We are constantly  picking at each other.  I know she wasn't trying to make trouble but, oh it's just a mess. It probably wouldn't be as bad if I didn't have this migraine and was thinking on my feet. Mom's been asking questions non stop wanting to know "just exactly what I'm into"  and threatening to search my part of the house. I swear, there is no such thing as privacy around here. *rolls eyes* I finally just walked away mumbling we'd talk about it tomorrow. I don't have a clue what to tell her. It's odd that she has such a problem with yaoi since she's the one that taught me  to be so accepting of everyone. She even has several gay friends. I just don't get it. *headdesk*  See, that's what's bad about having your folks live with you, even if they are in a different part of the house. I'm going to sleep now. Things have to be better in the morning and I'm hoping I can just sleep this migraine off.

Opinions please.


I've been working on this bit of art for a little while and I'm not sure if I'm happy with the way Ed's automail turned out. *sigh*  It's too freakin big to fit on my scanner. I had to take this with my camera phone, so excuse the fuzziness. My friend insisted that it be big enough for him to display in this huge frame, but didn't tell me until I'd already started it. Now it's all hodgepodged together. I offered to do another one on some larger paper but he wants this one. *shrug* Oh well, it's his picture.  It's pretty much finished now except for coloring in and a little clean up. This picture is from a day or so ago. I'm so bad. I've been working on it at work. >=3 Anyway, please take a look and tell me what you think of the automail and the picture overall.
To the art!Collapse )

Writer's Block: Chatty

Do you prefer texting or talking on the phone?
Texting 100%. I hate talking on the phone, which is odd since I talk on the phone all day for a living. If I'm going to talk to someone, I want to SEE them. All of my friends know that if they want to talk to me after work that they are going to have to text, IM, or video chat with me. 9 times out of 10 the ringer on my phone gets turned off the moment i walk in the door. I have an answering machine so I can pick up if it's an emergency but that's the only reason I talk on the phone. Well that and when Anel was in Alaska and New York I would talk to her. She's my best friend so I break my rules for her all the time. ^_^

Squee! I'm so happy! I've been wanting a Roy and an Ed plushie for forever and one of my friends sent them to me and I got a set of the plushie keychains from Japan! I just love them. Roy is the new one with a coat, too. As I was taking pictures I thought my kitty was going to attack them for taking attention away from her. Here you can see her

Kitty Death Glare

Then I realized she just wanted to be on my journal, too. Here she is again, posing with my keychains.

Song Meme Fun Time


1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

I was given L by darkblysse 

1. Legend of Middle Tennessee by Vic Mignogna     This is so funny. ^_^  An account of the dodgeball game between the Rangers and the Skirts in a hotel parking lot at MTAC a while ago. I have to take a moment to say that Vic's voice is incredible, even if you can't tell it on this song. His stuff is on I tunes now! W00T!

2. Let It All Bleed Out by Rob Zombie   Sometimes you just need a little Zombie.

3. Love Story by Taylor Swift  Ok, normally I FREAKIN HATE country music, but this is just cute. ^^

4. LoveGame by Lady GaGa  *snicker* How could I pass on a song that states "I wanna take a ride on your disco stick"? I really do need to get my mind out of the gutter and rinse it off every now and again.

5. Livin' On The Edge by Aerosmith  I adore Aerosmith. It could be  because they are one of the few bands that sound the same on the radio as they do live in concert or it could be because they are such sweet guys. I'm fond of anyone who notices me before a show and lets me in to watch them warm up. ^^

I need some fluff - Stat!


I don't know what it is with me and sad endings lately. Everything I watch or read seems to leave me crying or wanting to. The other night it was A Cicada in Winter.  It was such a good anime and then the end just killed me, even though I kinda had a feeling it was coming. I won't spoil it for those that want to see it but I was just having my own little sob fest. Anel and I went to see Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.  Yes, I have seen both the first one and the second one. Yes, I knew what was going to happen to Sonya and her unborn baby. Did it keep me from crying? No. I think I'm just over emotional right now. I don't know. I won't even go into the fan fiction that I've read lately. It's been good stuff, but OMG sooo sad. I need some fluff! Now! Please, can anyone point me to some good romantic smoopy fluff of the Roy/Ed kind?(I'll even take Al, Hei, or Havoc thrown in for good measure as long as Roy/Ed is included.)  Please? Rec your own stuff or someone elses. I don't care. I just need that "Awww" factor. I'll even take doujinshi scans or artwork. Thanks in advance.

Would you rather get up early or stay up late? Does your schedule fit your preference?
I'd rather stay up late. I'm a total night owl, but my schedule doesn't fit. I get up early, I mean like before the crack of dawn here. I need to go to sleep early, but I don't and 3 am finds me glaring at the clock and looking for something to kill it with. . I live for the weekends when I can stay up til 3 or 4 in the morning and sleep until noon. I've been teased for keeping the hours of a vampire on the weekends. Hmmm....well, my teeth have felt a little sharp lately. LOL

Writer's Block: DIY

MacGyver, hero of the tv show with the same name, is known for his resourceful use of ordinary household items to get out of an emergency situation. What's the most ingenious solution you've ever come up with in a pinch?
I used a balloon ribbon to fix my purse. I was on a night out with friends when my purse handle broke. The link came right off and split in two, so there was NO fixing it. My purse was one of those Japanese kimono purses with a bamboo handle. I was panicing because we were going to a pretty swanky place for a party. We weren't anywhere I could get what I really needed to fix it. I happened to see a balloon tied with a hot pink ribbon, which matched my purse, as we passed by a store. I ran in, purchased the balloon, cut the ribbon off, and cut it in two. I then removed the other link from the purse handle and used the balloon ribbon to tie the handle back onto the purse. I actually got compliments on the purse at the party. People thought I had purchased it that way and loved the ribbon tied handle.

Anel's Coming Home!

I'm so happy! ^_^ Anel got the job and she is leaving New York and heading this way in....37 minutes. LOL I just hope she'll be careful. It's something like an 18 to 19 hour drive through ice and snow. I don't know why I'm worried. It shouldn't be anything compared to Alaska, right? She says she'll see me Saturday. We won't have much girl bonding time though. She has to get everything set up with her job. We have a standing date for a girl's day/night on the town next weekend though. Welp, that's all I have to say. I have to get up for work in two hours and 45 minutes. Why do I do this to myself? I don't know. I really don't.

Writer's Block: Seven

Which of the seven deadly sins—sloth, greed, lust, gluttony, anger, envy, and pride—are you most likely to commit?
Oh wow, are there any of these I have NOT committed? LOL
 Sloth - Yeah, I'm a bear to get out of bed in the mornings and want to laze about and do things in my own sweet time.
Greed - I always want the best of everything and the more the better, right?
Lust - Always lusting after what people have and people themselves. LOL Plus, add the fact that I'm a yaoi fangirl....yeah.
Gluttony - Um...*kicks scale under the table* -^_^-;
Anger - This one is the least of my worries. I'm pretty laid back and easy going. I usually don't hold a grudge unless you get me really good and pissed and then all Hell breaks loose.
Envy - Hate to admit it, but I get super jealous sometimes.
Pride - Oh yeah. I've got it. Not too much, but it is there.
