I'm taking my first vacation of 2016. I haven't had scheduled time off since September when my coworker moved to Georgia. The guy we hired to replace here was not able to run the office prior to this vacation. I took all my time off before she left soooo - I've needed this time off for a while. I'm glad I was able to do it and that Bradford (the coworker) is not an infant anymore. Congrats dude - you're in big boy pants now.

Everyone has been asking me what my plans are and I'm like, SLEEP. I took time off to sleep - and go buy food. You know - the two things that keep me going in this world. Food and Sleep. I'm not going to the fucking Bahamas or doing anything vacation-y. I'll be lounging in my pajamas thanks guys.

* on another note, I'm rehashing my days were I would waste three hours tweaking CSS code. Ugh. I'll just leave it alone now. I like the colors. :D

My sister, her husband and child moved into her in-law's house (finally) today! They've been renovating their bathroom and have been living with us since JUNE. JUNE - as in seven months of co-habitation. They wanted to go over there sooner, but some other family members were bunking there while their leased house was being repaired from some flood damage. Anyway - They're gone. I love them, but thank god. This house was too small for all of us. My parents and I have been cleaning and rearranging and just generally being overjoyed and letting the notion set in. I was able to clean and condition the leather couch and throw away that bag of stale veggie straws that my sister assured me would get eaten. Whatever. It's gone. You know what else is gone - the coconut oil. My sister used it for everything; face and body moisturizer, cooking oil, lip balm and a billion other things. Every time I turned around it was sitting there. Lol. I'm just happy to have some space again.

Cleaning out your bookmarks that you've been importing and exporting for six years. It was a big old mess. I could tell what I was doing in college based on my bookmarks, ie. logos, fonts, WW3 pages, stock photos and a shit ton of artist websites. And I had like 5 Rec folders, mostly filled with Sam/Dean fiction recs. Lot's of Big Bang stories and PDF downloads. I haven't watched Supernatural since season...6, the one with the Levianthan or something. Destiel was a big thing on my tumblr dash, so I got out of because of that mainly, but now I'm over it and I'm like, what the hell, Cas/Dean can be cool too.

If you wanna check out my bookmarks, I've got some on AO3. You'll find some H50, Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Kingsman, Fili/Kili (the hobbit), Teen Wolf and some other pairings. I love rec pages, I've been wanting to make my own for a while now. Eh. Who has time?

I'm a bit nervous because my 10 year high school reunion is this summer. I am not prepared to go, or see these people. I would only go to see certain people and end up awkwardly talking to people that were not my friends in school. My sister is going to force me to go, I can feel it. Noooo. On the other hand, we buried a time capsule in one of our friends back yard and we get to dig it up this year. I think I put our Junior and Senior Prom invites in it, but I also think someone put in a toothpick that almost killed them during one of our dinners senior year. It was chicken cordon bleu and he left the toothpick in the damn thing... lol. Good times.

Time is flying by like crazy. The little mental calendar I have is never accurate because I tell myself something wasn't that long ago and then I find out it was YEARS ago. Ugh. The mechanism in my brain that is supposed to keep up with that has always been out of wack.

And now, because I love the keep track of my fandom escapades, my new OTP's and unrealistic ships that have killed me. Firstly, I am complete Spirk trash, but only for AOS, original stuff throws me way off, although I've read some of the classics from the bygone era of print publications. I ship McKirk on the side, because Karl Urban as Bones, like, does it for me (don't make me explain, this fics are worth it).

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. reboot owned my soul for a few weeks there. Army Hammer is the cutest puppy to ever puppy on this planet. Napoleon Solo/Illya Kuryakin is one of the oddest name combo's I've seen in a while.

Sterek is like the ship that sails in a circle for me. I've only seen the first 2 seasons of Teen Wolf, so I don't consider it a major OTP, but dear lord there are some AMAZING fics for this ship out there. Bless you writers.

I never had a ship with the LOTR fandom, I wasn't in fandom at the time, but I was for the Hobbit so.... I ship Durincest, of the Fili/Kili variety and some Bilbo/Thorin, just a bit. I think I like Fili/Kili so much is that it's so different from Wincest. The fanfic writers come up with such different and brilliant reasons for them to become lovers. It's horribly angsty and I love it.

And last, but not least, The Musketeers - because the casting on that show is awesome. Porthos, Athos and Aramis are probably one of my only OT3 pairings. Please ask me for rec's if you feel the need to explore this fandom. It's fabulous and historical and so romantic I can't stand it. I own the second season, but haven't finished watching it. I will be caught up by the time the third season airs on BBC America.

I haven't written a post this long in.... probably never. I miss fangirling on LJ. It's seems more legit here anyway.

Cheers!

I really hate getting upset because it's an intense emotion for me. It can be over something insignificant but it pulls me so far down I can't believe I feel this way - OVER something so stupid. This is why I avoid argument and confrontations because I know how far down I'll fall into this feeling. Arg.

I haven't been this upset in a while. I wanna start the day over and just skip over that part. I wanna just have a good cry but I feel so stupid about it.

I was finally able to get my computer back. My parents had been using it since their last one crashed and I had just graduated college and didn't need mine just yet. My sisters and I bought them a new Dell computer for their anniversary and I regained possession of my Mac. The OS was horribly outdated and my browsers were giving me hell. I was able to buy a new OS and do an update. Now I can use updated browsers and view shit the was it was supposed to be viewed. Tumblr works and I can use themes and add-ons again. I'm so fucking happy. It's like a new computer. Not even joking.

I've been working on some of my unfinished Bleach fics. I'm having to re-read some of the manga again, because I've forgotten EVERTHING and I HATE THAT. I miss Bleach horribly and I want to get back into it.

Anybody watch In The Flesh? I loved it to pieces and now I need ideas to write about because I'm itching to write some Siren.

You're awesome if you've still got me friended. I've been out of the loop for a while.

:D

Didn't have to go to into work until one today. Just to give stuff time to thaw. We still have ice all over the yard and lots of roads still have sand and are iced, the sun really didn't melt as much as we'd hoped.

Mom mentioned there is another chance for another winter storm possible in the next two weeks. I don't think we could handle another one. Ugh.

Is it odd that I enjoy doing my taxes? I just like getting money back from the government. I worked hard for it and I want it back.

Cheers!

Just wanted to check back in. Still here, still fumbling my way through life and you know, not knowing what I'll do next. Spend most my time at work and sleeping and playing Assassin's Creed when I have the spare time. Haven't had the time or the computer to write anything since my parent have kind of hijacked mine since their trusty dinosaur died a few months ago. *waits patiently for income tax to come in to get a new laptop*.

I check in with tumblr to view fandom stuff nowadays, I've only recently browsed through my fiends page on LJ to check in with fandom life here. I miss it terribly and wish I was back in the habit of stalking people/communities on here. It was so much fun. I can't believe how much time as passed since I posted fics in the fandoms.

I'm sure you've heard of the winter storm that just passed through the south east. Well I'm here in Mobile, AL and everything is fucking frozen. No snow, no wintery awesomeness, just ice and icy things everywhere. Ew. I don't go back to work until 1pm tomorrow after everything has had a chance to thaw. Seriously, the city is shutdown, all roads are pretty much closed, bridges closed, life is at a standstill until the sun comes back out. We are not prepared to deal with this stuff. And it will be back into the 70's by this weekend with rain.

If you still have me friended, thank you for not giving up on me. I'm making an effort to reconnect with my beloved journal and old fandom friends. Thanks!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope all my American friends have a happy, safe, well-fed day. May your pants be stretchy enough and may your relative not be assholes.

XOXO
