The new boy in my life, Ziggy Bunbutts ♥

Watch out, else he may steal your heart as well!

Knit knit knit, it's about the only thing I feel like doing lately. I had intended to make a skirt this week as well, but this handsome little fellow demanded all my attention, so I gladly gave it to him.

Found out that LBK had Feline Leukemia. I've been in tears since I picked her up from the clinic.

My summer knitting project, I actually finished it a while ago, but if we're friends on the Facebook, you've already seen this!

I'm pretty pleased with how this lovely little thing came out, although I'll admit, I would rather just look at it then wear it.

Feeling a bit too lazy to post lately, but perhaps I'll just make short photo posts for a while!

This cute Little Black Kitten fell into our lives last week, when a friend of a friend posted a picture of her, trying to find a home for this little bundle of sweetness. She was found behind a post office in Stone Mountain, but the rescue/sponsor group the couple is with wouldn't sponsor her, because she's a black cat, and thus don't get adopted as easily :'/ Well, fuck that rescue group and their dumb ideas! LBK is the best kitten ever~

We're trying to get our other cat, Skatha, on board with with the idea of having another kitty in the house. It hasn't gone as smoothly as we really wanted, but it's not going terribly either. I suppose we can't really expected it to be all sparkles and purrs considering Skatha is about 16 years old, and has gotten used to being the only child. Today though we had them within inches of each other, and no one hissed or growled, so I'm calling this evening a success!

LBK (no name yet) is too cute for words, and has totally stolen my heart ♥
Well, hopefully just posting some pictures of my knitting doesn't cause you to think I've become a crazy cat lady or have lost interest in everything else. I just want to show off my newest ability to successfully make things out of some string and sticks!

3 More Pics )

Because I needed another hobby, right? I suspect my obsessive-yet-lazy nature is going to drive me insane eventually.

I forgot to mark my 10 year anniversary of joining LiveJournal, so uh, here we are!

Don't be surprised, but I have about as much to say now as I did last time I posted, so to fill the empty void, here's a picture from our trip to San Francisco earlier this year :)

Welcome, to the dark side....

We have cookies!

I couldn't help it... Stan really wanted to cosplay wear his Storm Trooper mask and play with the Deathstar cookie jar we finally got today ^^

Even though I haven't posted in almost seven months, I haven't given up on you. I read you daily, even if the posting going on on my friends list has decreased dramatically.
Like in real life, I sometimes have no idea what to say. I would rather be quiet then spout out dumb shit, which I am sadly very good at. But, in doing so I keep myself from saying almost anything. I second guess myself too often. I wish I could stop that. I haven't really figured myself out at all, not even a tiny bit it feels like.
I am pretty under the weather this week, so I'm in a off mood to begin with. Next week I may feel differently about myself.

I knitted a little robot-monster-thing for Josh for Valentine's

Well, I still don't have anything profound to say, I just felt like posting something.

Can't be bothered to make a real post, so just a pic of something I started working on this week for Dragon*Con, to wear with this dress I found at Goodwill last weekend...

Late last Wednesday, [ profile] normal and I drove down to Amelia Island to play at the beach, with [ profile] ninsun, [ profile] ozgolith, Michelle, and later joined by [ profile] scottopic and [ profile] skiadaimonos~ We had a great time, and pretty much ate at the same place the whole time, a shack-built-off-a-bar bar-b-que place down the road, where I consumed far too many 'corn nuggets'.... Now that I'm thinking about it I should look up a recipe XD
We did a lot of playing at the beach but there is never nearly enough of that! I can't wait to go again~ The place we stayed at was a tiny bit weird, but cheap and just a block away from the beach- a locals only beach, hurrah! On Saturday we could look down towards to public beach, and just see the huge crowd of people there, scary~~ I forget how tiring the beach is, but it was really a lot of fun.

Glad to be home now, but still missing the beach ;) Hopefully we can go again~

Today hasn't been too exciting, laundry, baking, X-Files... Saturday we'll be going to my parent's house in Lawrenceville to help them with a yard sale, woooooo ~__~

Everyone on Facebook for the past week weeks has been going on and on about... Dragon*Con! We did buy tickets, so I should start thinking of what to do and wear. I will very likely be toting my Pint Size Slasher mask around again, but otherwise I don't really have any ideas ^^; I may dig through my costume ideas folder for a quick (and cheap) costume inspiration. Maybe I'll make a creepy-cute bunny mask~

Crazy past few months, but I've been taking more pics as I promised myself, just... with my cellphone XD We got Android phones late last year, so I've been entertaining myself with the various camera and photo editing apps available. So instead of a deep meaningful post, have a visual look of my life~

24 Pictures... )

I guess I kinda forgot to post this big news (unless you follow me on FaceBook, then this is old news...)- we finally bought a house! Hallelujah! It only took us a year of searching, haha! Lots of stumbles and chaos along the way but we found the perfect place for us :)

Link To More Pics!

I'm really happy we finally moved out of our old hell-hole apartment! This house has a ton of space and I can't wait to get the deck fixed up so we can have a big housewarming party~ Can't wait to get the sewing/craft room set up so I can start making things <3 Aaaaaaahhhhh it's so nice to be home!
OK Livejournal internet friends, I cannot not re-post this picture.

Giraffoodle will quiz you later

I think I'm going to have nightmares of this thing tonight.

I finally did something crafty, feels like it's been a while ^^ I found these horrible/wonderful flowers at the dollar store a few weeks ago and knew I had to buy them for a project. They're just SO bright and fluorescent and uwah ugly D: I really hate strongly dislike orange, but I was no match to the siren call of these flowers. I gawked at them, picked them up and carried them around for a while, put them back, only to return T__T

Something to wear to Psytrance )

So, along with a new Psytrance-appropriate hair piece, I will have two new prints to show as well:

I forgot to update! Sorry ^^

Thank you to everyone who gave me well wishes on the biopsy. The results came back fine, nothing to worry about. It was quite a relief to have an answer, and one in my favor.

Watch out, baby meerkats!
The zombies want to nosh
on your tender brain matter~
Last night we went to [ profile] ninsun and [ profile] ozgolith's place to help M decorate for Christmas~ I snapped a cute pic of the baby-demon-kaiju-kitty scoping out the potential evil to be had upon the pink Hello Kitty tree

The Hello Kitty tree is so sweet~ If we had room I might do the same.

I looked at a house for us to rent yesterday, but we decided not to go with it, since there wasn't any available street parking, and the road it's off does get a bit of traffic. So we extended our lease here for another 6 months, and in the meantime we'll continue to hunt for a house to buy.

I had an incredible stroke of luck today~ We stopped by TJMaxx so I could find something to wear with my dress for Josh's company's Christmas party next week, and I found these pretties~

A pair of Valentino for Wolford tights for $20 ♥ ♥ ♥ Marked down from their original price of a mind-boggling $110. They're quite gorgeous, but I dunno if they're $110 gorgeous *lol*


Anyway, since summer we've been in the market to buy a house. We put an offer on one in August, but since it was a short sale it's taken forever. We heard back from them the day before D*C, did the paperwork, then had to wait on the bank to make a decision on whether or not they'd sell it at that price. We didn't hear anything back until the day before Thanksgiving, and probably the only reason we heard back at all was b/c Josh threatened to terminate the offer.

So we set up to do the inspection this past Thursday... What a mess, we couldn't even go inside because the people were still in there and had the deadbolt locked! Well, the times we had looked at the house before, the downstairs sliding glass door was always open, and it was, so we went into the basement. Well, long story short, our inspector gave us his professional opinion on the place, just from the outside and the basement- run run run ^^ And that we did.

God. It's disappointing, but I think I'm more irritated because of how long all of this fucking took, for nothing. So now we have to scramble to either find a place to rent, or try to get a six-month extension where we already are.

Uhg, I feel so tired now.
