Yesterday was another productive day. Woke up early and watched I Love You Phillip Morris. Made udon for lunch, watered the potted plants, did dishes, sorted my coupons, cleaned the floors, and did the shopping. Didn't get to do laundry like I planned, but that wasn't so bad because I can do that today after work.

Other than that, all is good. Except for this morning. This morning sucked ass.

Had trouble falling asleep last night so I didn't hit a restful sleep until about 2 am. Bernard decided he wanted to play at about 4. Tried ignoring him and when he started clawing on furniture I tried opening my curtains so he could look out, throwing things at him, force cuddles, trapping him under the blanket, telling him he was a shit-face asswipe, and carrying him around. All of the commotion woke Meeko up who decided it was door scratching time. After about an hour and a half of that I finally let the two outside (well, I threw Meeko out. She wanted noms but it was not noms time so I called her a fat ass traitor and told her to get some exercise). Sort of lay in bed until about 6:30 unable to get back to sleep and then finally got up and made coffee and cried many tears of sleepy anger.

Logged onto Neopets to do my dailies and noticed I had several message. I was taking part in a Krawk/Mazzew lend and I had received the pet/petpet in question on Sunday and then sent it on its way on Monday. When I hadn't gotten notification of the next person picking up the transfer by Wednesday, I pulled up the pet's lookup, saw its owner listed as the original lender and assumed the chain had finished out and that I had just accidentally deleted the notification of the completed transfer without realizing it.

Nope. Turns out the person after me never accepted the transfer and that both that person and the original owner had sent me PMs on the 29th and 30th sometime after I had logged off on Wednesday. Since I didn't get on Neo at all yesterday I never saw them. Now it looks like the pet/petpet is stuck and I may have to shell out half the np for the fucking things. There goes all my savings for paintbrushes.

Blah blah bliggity blah. I brought a Nat Geo, HP #1, and a Jughead double digest to read but I'm so tired my eyes hurt. AND I'm craving chocolate chip cookies.

MY LIFE GUYS. SO HARD.

Working on a test for geology. I'm kind of ashamed that I remember so little from physical and historical. This test should be a breeze.

Heading to the pet store later on today to pick up more vitamins for the cats and some more bath sand for the hammy. Possibly will also pick up some more toys and some flea medicine (it's that time of year again!). Last year we had a bit of a disaster where the flea preventative we purchased did not work and that was a nightmare. I'm hoping it won't happen again. The vet said that it wasn't totally uncommon for the stuff to not work every once in a while. It was extraordinarily frustrating though, because flea preventative for four cats is quite expensive (even if you get the cheapest available stuff, which we don't). Anyone have any recommendations on brands/tactics that have worked for y'all? We were using Advantage, then switched to Frontline (or the other way around, can't remember), combined with shampoo that supposedly helps fight fleas or whatever and giving them brewer's yeast/garlic tablets. Other than putting my babies into plastic bubbles idk what to do. I really don't want a repeat of last year...

Got my essay finished and turned in, and paid my deposit, so I'm going on the Llano trip. April 16-17. I'm looking so forward to it.

I got a FFQ during the Faerie Quest event on Neo, so I painted my ixi plushie. I picked up four chombies on Chomby Day. Laurentia will stay blue (my favorite chomby color), and Diplosdokos and Diplodocinae will be painted Royal (Girl and Boy respectively). I'm looking to trade or adopt Panthalassa. My lab rats have been getting horrible zaps lately, but I've splurged and purchased a petpet lab map and am working on getting a third secret lab map. I have so many pets I've adopted with plans to zap, but I don't have enough lab rays. My gallery's been put on hold again, because I've started purchasing a lot of wearables so that I can customize my guys.

Just uploaded a bunch of new icons. I had sooo much trouble filling my extra loyalty userpic spaces this year because I couldn't decide which ones I wanted to add to my ever-growing list.

I've been killing so much time on Neopets lately. Getting really close to the 2 mil mark. I really want to get there before I start buying for my gallery again. I've been playing as many games as I can but I really suck so I can easily spend 30 minutes on a game and then only earn 30 NP. Haha, I suck at games. I'm sure most of you have heard about it taking me over a month to beat a My Little Pony game on my DS. If it's for 8 and up, then it's too hard for me. (Seriously, I got Scribblenauts for Christmas and I couldn't even figure out the tutorial!)

I've watched Torchwood and I loved it. Omg Ianto~ /swoon. I can think of so many uses for that tie collection of his.

This morning Mom and I woke up early to go over to Gene's house. He owns a trailer park and is about to move into a trailer over there so he can save on gas (apparently he's paying about $300/mo for it right now because he lives so far away from his actual job) and money. He asked Mom to help him sort out what he's keeping and what he's trashing and I offered to tag along. Got a few books and craft supplies out of it along with a free lunch (Wendy's new fries are not as good as I had anticipated) and some cash. That's car insurance for another month + Netflix. Load off my mind, let me tell you. I also got some GORGEOUS blue geode book end thingamajigs. Totally beautiful and sparkly and rocks (!!!) so I am thrilled. Also, two Pokey Little Puppy books.

When I got home Bernie was all over me, and he's been sleeping in my lap all day. I'm anticipating him waking me up at 5 am though but he's so cute I guess I'll forgive him.

Spent this evening chilling and watching The Green Hornet. Super thrilled to finally see it because I really admire Bruce Lee.

A couple weeks ago I got slammed with this killer urge to go camping in a state park. I really wouldn't know how though, because I haven't been camping in years and all I remember from Girl Scouts is that they wouldn't let me use a knife after I accidentally chopped my finger open.

Class starts on the 24th. I'm still unemployed. At this rate, going back to work is going to be really hard because I've gotten used to waking up late and chilling with my cats all day. I've started looking into what I can do from home but unless I open a daycare I'm pretty much out of luck there. Oh well.

We had a sudden cold front over here and I'm really sad. I missed my warm weather. Hopefully summer'll come quickly this year.

Okay, so after some hardcore not-buying and some anger-inducing keyquesting ("WHY are you using that powerup on me? I'm already behind all the rest of you! ____ has all the keys! Use it on him/her!") I have FINALLY gotten my bank account back up to 1M np.

Seriously.

It took me almost a year because none of the games I'm good at have high ratios, and I kept buying shit.

Now to go for 2M. I'd really like to be there before I start buying things to add to my gallery.

But OMELETTES.

(Also, wtf. The Omelette Stamp is FOURTEEN MILLION. ARGH WHY.)

I am trying to get a poogle. Actually, I am trying to get four. I want to name them after the young heroes from last years' NaNo novel. I know none of you care. I am such a three-year-old. XD

So, I know I've mentioned this before, but I really wish my package delivery man would wear his uniform. I almost missed a V.I.P. (very important package!) today because he dresses like a ghetto-man and I'm scared to open the door at first glance. (He's actually quite nice and soft-spoken).

This V.I.P. was my long-awaited Vintage Cherry jsk and ribbon headdress/bow thing from Meta. :) Qapla'!!! And.......(can you believe this??).........IT FITS. Like a glove, so absolutely perfectly. Double epic win. I do think that I may sell the ribbon headdress bow thing though, because when I ordered this stuff I still had my long hair and now I have short hair and it looks a bit......wonky. But, I'm going to play around and see if I can find a way to make it look alright.

Also, Meta sent me a bonus gift! I got their Room Print pillow, which is so great because it matches my room decor and I had been considering buying it when it showed up on [livejournal.com profile] egl_comm_sales a few weeks back. :]

I did decide to get Meta's special set. I'm just not going to buy anything else for the rest of the summer. Well, okay. I may buy some socks from Sock Dreams, but that's it. No more big lolita purchases.

IRL stuff )

And now....for my A-kon review. (lol....this is soooo late!)

First, con meme )

Ah.....A-kon. Alex drives like a fucking psycho. Maddie needed to get out of the bathroom. We took too much food. Sam got all his boxes stolen by the cleaning ladies. I HAD FUN. I wish I had gone to the cosplay contest, but whatever. Little regrets..... It was worth it. I have been dying to go and it was everything (and nothing!) that I expected.

I do wish I had been able to hang out with Kammie and co. But~ I guess we'll just have to be more organized next time.

I keep trying to upload my photos to Facebook, but for some reason it won't let me. I'm going to try again tomorrow and hope for the best!!!

I'm working on "Yesterday, Today, and Yesterday" and "From One Devil to Another" again. Hopefully I can get them up to a decent level. But~ my attention wanders and there is so much more I want to write instead. *has such a wandering attention span*

Also, I'm re-obsessed with Neopets. I can be found as poem_gal7
