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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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 )

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

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 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.

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.
