*quietly orders belt buckles for her doll* I ordered 10 and paid $12 at one site when I could have ordered 10 and paid $10 at another, but the second site is badly managed.

Uhmm... Hm. Trevor's condition is still fluctuating. He's not bouncing back like he had been. Saw a giant goober of snot on his nose, though, so the sneezing might stop.

I had to draw different skulls for Anthropology. :O

Went to Club Skandal with Hannah for Halloween. I dressed as a priest. No pictures.

Yessi painted Satochi's portrait for me with watercolors. :D I love it.

Got the seating chart for Artists' Alley all done. Will be posting that soon.

Date on Saturday and my sister+niece are coming to visit :D

The end.

Okay, fuckers. Due to some INTERESTING NEWS I HAVE BEEN TOLD, I am going to A-kon next year.

Even if I have to rob a bank to do it.

The reason is, INUGAMI CIRCUS-DAN is going to be there, their FIRST show in the US, with a Q&A and an autograph session. I basically have to be there or commit honorable suicide! So I'm going!

Is anyone on my f-list going? I AM CURIOUS.

Clearly [livejournal.com profile] zombiequeens is.

Wahahahahaha all three tests of the week are DONE. Artists' Alley has stopped melting so it can go back in the freezer shortly, and now.


*goes back to translating Mucc blogs*

First, some background: Around the time Trevor started feeling like crap, two things had happened: The weather had started warming up, and we had added Fancy Feast canned food to their diet. Couple that with him being 16 years old, and you have a whole slue of things that could be causing whatever this is. We knew both of these things might be factors, so we weren't sure what to do. (all the while, our vet is giving us the evil eye and blaming us for this and acting like we torture him. Apparently it's animal cruelty for a cat to live a happy, healthy SIXTEEN YEARS. So if your cat's over ten years old, you might have to run it over before you get caught. o_o)

He'd been sneezing a lot all summer, but the last several nights he had been wheezing heavily.

We took him off Fancy Feast two days ago. About the same time the weather started cooling off XP

He's almost back to normal. As normal as a 16 yr old can be.

And I got into the Speech class, btw. ^^

Just saying hi from my new mini laptop, an ASUS EEE.

Hopefully I'll start being more productive now. :O

So, our vet had to do some digging around and asking of experts.

Trevor has elevated protein levels (we discovered this at the time of the potassium thing). By "elevated" we mean they're roughly 40x what they should be. Yeah. 40. The proteins are coming from his body attacking his muscles. Clearly this isn't common in cats. Basically his is a condition that's found more often in people than in cats, but it's not like it can't happen. BUUUUT. Bottom line is that it can be a tumor near his digestive system. Malignant or benign, we dunno. But the tumor theory is just that: a theory.

So, then, the vet gave us some testing options: We could have the $1000 .... whatever scan, the $500 MRI scan, or the far more accurate $30 blood test that has $45 shipping to Tennessee.

I shit you not, he gave that list of options to my mom to pick from.
spoon9001: An eyeball staring at you. Judging you. >:( (Default)
Remember how I'd said that Trevor was doing better thanks to the potassium?

Well, Mom was terrified that if we gave him too much, his heart would stop. So, instead of giving it to him Once a day instead of twice, Hey, let's stop altogether! He's doing better anyway!

He can't walk again. HMMM. What a concept.
spoon9001: An eyeball staring at you. Judging you. >:( (Default)
Apparently units have been $20, and they just went up to $26 this semester. I just paid the outstanding $137 that the system neglected to inform me of. 9 units for a grand total of $227. Thing is, they took down the "purchase parking" option. o_O Is that now included in the cost? We'll find out.

In other news, there was something that I had neglected to mention regarding Anime Expo: I met a guy.

Apparently the only reason that he'd approached me was because he saw Hayvn's Imperative Reaction Tshirt. Hoh shit, we like the same kind of music. Then he recognized my family name, which is a very rare name. We know nearly everyone that has it, it's that rare. He doesn't have it, but his aunt used to be married to our family. So, that got us talking on a few things. Long story short, his name is Cory and we have a little too much in common. XD Sadly he lives 6 hours away, but he'll be down in September and we'll spend some time together without an artist alley table between us and the hustle and bustle of convention life surrounding us. X3 I'm a little excited; I'm not head over heels for him or anything, but that's because I had a lot going on. He, on the other hand, feels that I was the only good thing to come out of his trip to Anime Expo, so he had more time to reflect.

Anyway, maybe we can go clubbing. If not we'll find something "normal" to do. XD

Last couple days our 15 year old cat, Trevor, has been having some issues. Namely, he can't lift his head and can't walk properly. He feels fine otherwise. And I meant that. He's... mainly just frustrated. We got some blood work results back today and apparently he has low potassium. Vet says that something else seems to be afoot, though, so he needs another round of (expensive...) blood work done. :/ Dad's on his way to come get us before the vet closes for the day. Hopefully a supplement is all that is needed.

And we're back. His potassium is SLIGHTLY low, and... he has an auto immune disease. That attacks his muscles. XP It's painless, which is more important to me.
spoon9001: An eyeball staring at you. Judging you. >:( (Default)
I mean uh yeah.

Lessee... Saturday I went on a date and saw Up. It's awesome, but a bit of a tear jerker; so if you haven't seen it, be prepared for that.

Sunday I made some knee length shorts for Hayvn. They look like microscopic Dickies. X3 I'll get some photos when they're 100% done.

Monday I was supposed to do my yoga final after having slept through the last day of class on the 8th. X| So I showed up and pretended like I was going to take the class, as she'd suggested, and then she told me that since I showed up, I didn't have to do it. D: I nearly fell to the floor and kissed her feet.
After that was [livejournal.com profile] sanjicat's birthday party dinner out in Brea, so I grabbed [livejournal.com profile] zombiequeens and we headed out there. After dinner, we all learned a little known fact about the Underground Railroad: It was a viable form of terrorism. Comparable to blowing up buildings. Did you all know that? We didn't. Yes, I'm being facetious.

Tuesday, [livejournal.com profile] firenaux asked me to drive him home from school XD So I hung out with them and watched [livejournal.com profile] zombiequeens play Silent Hill Homecoming. My Dog that game is an orgasm a frame. AND PYRAMID HEAD WAWHDHDFJY90W43R89375U3IHEFDISHFKJHDS F *dies* I'm gonna get the Wii Silent Hill when it comes out (more like when it's $20) and then we can like... be each other's BFFLs.
When I got home I tried my online Anthropology class. After taking the first quiz and failing to understand how the Powerpoints went with the assigned lectures, I dropped the class. I have enough stress these next 8 days; I don't need to make more by watching 5 lectures, hoping they're the right ones, reading 6 chapters in the book, and taking 5 quizzes. ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE that needs to get done for AX.

And then today I made a T-shirt for Hayvn. :D I need to hem the sleeves and bottom but I painted Imperative Reaction's old logo on it. Dude. It is epic. I have enough scrap to make another one but I'm not sure who to put on it. I only have white and yellow fabric paint for the while. :/ I'll try to run to Joann's and find white knit fabric and get some red paint while I'm there.
spoon9001: An eyeball staring at you. Judging you. >:( (Default)
Joann's had a Simplicity pattern sale for $0.99 this weekend so I went and got a few patterns for Hayvn. ^^ I got ones that I'd want for myself, too, so expect some new outfits for me :D Like black slacks that fit my fat thighs and ass.

I got this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one, which I'm working with right now for the Renn Faire doll gathering at the end of the month. Basically, since she's so small, I take the diagram that shows the pieces I'll need for the project, scan it in and scale it up a bit depending on the pieces, and print it out.

Not as easy as it sounds, because I've found that the pieces aren't to scale with one another. The blouse front and back are to scale to each other, but the sleeve is at half scale by comparison, the skirt probably a third, etc. etc. Fortunately, the bodice aside, this is a pattern of mostly rectangles, so it's not much of a brain teaser to figure out. The gothy costume one looks like it might be close to scale, because it has so few pieces, but I'll find out eventually.

Tomorrow's Easter. We're gonna spend the day with Gramma and I'll introduce her to Hayvn and all her white skin nakedness. XD And try making a few more mock-up pieces while I'm there. X3 I'm so excited! I'm gonna have a doll with clothes! XD Make-up will come after that since her eyes are still shut.

Oh, and I'm on Spring Break finally. Sorta. It's technically Monday.

So, the doll arrived Friday, but nobody was there to claim her so my neighbor took her. I had to wait all weekend and endure yoga class waiting to see her. XP (Yoga requires focus and a clear mind, so... yeah. Not happening. Though I actually did okay)

Mom and Dad had a reenactment this past weekend and had left Thursday but Mom got sick and came home. Friday I dropped stuff off for Dad and tried to swing by the office to see if I could pick up the doll but our neighbor had already left. So, Mom stayed home all weekend.

Saturday was the Elfdoll Easter gathering. I took Yessi and Julie and we had a blast seeing everyone again and molesting all the dollies.

Sunday Mom was feeling better and we went to help Dad tear down the White House and load of the trailer. Had other people helping us, too, so we got it all done in like 3 hours, which is amazing. The sun was still up! XD Went for pizza with everyone and then went home.

So now I have my little girl. I swapped heads and boxed up the pretty one after taking pictures, and then I dressed her in the outfit I got at the last Elfdoll gathering's lottery. This brand is clearly not meant for Iplehouse girls, because she can't sit in the pants without them coming undone AND showing off her butt cleavage, and the tank top sits weird on her because of her boobs not hanging that low or something. Basically she gets massive top-cleavage, too. But whatev. I'll make clothes for her myself. ^^ Next I have to open her eyes though. Oh, and her magnets keep popping out of the sockets so her head cap won't stay on now that it's got stuff in it. :(

But I'll post pictures tonight. :D

Anime Expo

Okay, so I just registered for AX. [livejournal.com profile] koromiel expressed interest in doing Artist Alley and I thought, well, maybe things will change in a few months. We can share a table. Hell, because we can have 4 people to a table, maybe we can share with a third person. Like Cindy >>;;; Maybe. Anyway. The price'll go up $5 in about a half hour, so I figured, it's the same price as a 2-day badge; might as well get all 4 days.

I know I won't be getting a hotel. I'll have to drive back and forth, but maybe I'll stay at Koromiel's for the weekend. I know she wouldn't mind the company.

*goes back to practicing faceups on her doll head*

K, Winter session is over after today, Thursday. I have a Japanese Culture final and an essay to do. I just finished my EPIC ESSAY IS EPIC Pirates and Ninjas research essay for English 1A. 3200+ words dedicated to why Pirates are way better. Oh yeah, I said it. *raises the roof, pirate style*

Spring session starts next week. I'll have 11 units, 12 if I can get into the Yoga class. That's basically full time. I'll be taking Japanese 4, Contemp. US Hisory, (maybe) Intermediate Yoga [who the hell waitlists for YOGA?! Me, that's who.], and Health Science. I've got like 30 more units to take before I transfer to CSU, and then another 33 there, hopefully. I'll cry if there are more that I haven't been made aware of. But i can MAYBE do those 33 in a year, get my BA (on top of my three AA's and one AS, I shit you not), and go to Japan on a work visa. That's my goal in life now.


Bingbing gave me a sinus cold that left me feeling like crap all weekend, and it's still hanging in there, but between the bursts of completely plugged nostrils, I'm feeling better. If I had Hall's I'd be fine, I'm sure.

My MUCC singles, Sora to Ito, came in the mail this week. In them were vouchers for a Valentine's card from one of the members, but even if the thing was open to overseas fans, the postmark deadline was impossible to meet between the two mailing schedule times. After having my teacher translate the instructions for me, though, I've resolved to mail the damn thing in anyway, reminding them that they have these fans over here on the other side of the world known as OUTSIDE OF JAPAN that would love these stupid little trinkets from them. You know, the ones that they GOT JET LAG FOR. Yeesh. I'm not petty. Really.

Doesn't seem as bad as the last time, but I am still technically sick.

Having some personal issues to work through.

Off to Arizona for the weekend, come Thursday.

Got a new phone on Friday. I had a Pay as You Go model that was used with a Family Plan, and now I have a red Juke. I. Love. It. Not even for the music player aspect, either. It's just a really slick design for someone like me. (I have small hands and long fingernails, for one major factor)

Visited [livejournal.com profile] sanji_cat for the first time in a while. Last time I saw her was at ALA. She's such a sweetheart T^T

Somewhere last week, I lost my sanity when MUCC (specifically their bassist) created a blog finally. How did I lose it? I said that I'd translate it. Why? Because I was insane for about 46 hours. But it's doing well. [livejournal.com profile] muccbrog is the community. Tell your friends that like this band called "muck". :D All the members have been very supportive and gracious and patient and appreciative of my efforts T-T

Next month, [livejournal.com profile] otaku_jrock and I find out the results of the manga competition.

April 10th, we have the Taste of Chaos tour (with MUCC and D'espairsRay and Transtic Nerve). W00t.

It's been a while since I've actually updated...

Let's see.

Been taking Japanese classes alongside Photography. I have Color photo this spring, and then I get my certificate. <3 I'll take Japanese 3 in the Fall, helping [livejournal.com profile] flaming_loffel while she takes Japanese 2 during the Spring.

Still don't have a job. D: Gay. I really need to call the photographers in the area and see if they need assistants. Of the 3, only one lists an address, and I seriously have no idea what to say over the phone... Any ideas?

The first Chapter of MidnighTokyo was sent off to Japan for the competition, just a few days shy of Christmas. I was tired of it and glad to be done, I am not kidding. But I like it. I'm proud of it, and I'm confident that it'll do well. Especially since I had a dream that it did. ^-^

ALA came and went, and I already updated with that.

Ari and I are working out details for Anime Expo. If anyone is going and needs a place to stay, let us know. We're always looking for roommates.

December 30th, my sister cut my hair. For those that don't know me too well, I had been growing my hair out since July 2002, when it was just above chin-length. It was at my butt by the time my sister hacked it off, and now it's roughly shoulder length. So, that was a major thing to us. Five and a half years of my life is now tied up in a Ziplock to either be sold or made into extensions. I'm also pretty interested in getting an Iple House Doll (Soo Ri, in particular), and would consider making a wig out of my leftovers, as well. But that's down the line.

And then a very tiny thing: Gackt killed my car radio. Right after Thanksgiving, I was driving to school and went over... not even a pothole. A large imperfection in the asphalt on the interchange, and my radio skipped while playing "Vanilla." Not only did it skip, but all buttons ceased to respond. And after hitting Reset, the radio pretty much spiraled down into electronic death. This radio, like my hair, was in my life for 5 and a half years. I loved it, it was the best radio that I could have asked for, for that price. And it was even a conversation piece. Well, it was dead and obsolete and beyond repair. Got a new one though, and it was installed right after the semester ended. Nowhere near as cool and nowhere near as handy to use, but it is easy to use, it isn't ugly, and it plays MP3s. XD My old one didn't do that.

Gackt is no longer allowed inside my car. Furthermore, this CD in question was literally pried out of the radio with pliers and a screwdriver and promptly thrown into the microwave for a 20-second victory celebration.
