One day isn't going to hurt, is it?  I mean, sure, I had popcorn.  And gelato.  But it was only a small bit of gelato! And the popcorn was in place of lunch.  

*Face palm*

I haven't gone for a walk the past few days as it's been pouring rain, and I'm very lazy and like my creature comforts.   Cold, windy rain is not fun.  I do feel bad, though, that I haven't gone to the gym.  The fact that it's almost a 20 minute drive is the main reason, but also because I've been having trouble waking up before 10am.  

Anyway, I hope the weather clears up a bit later on and I can go for a walk, work off some of that food, lol.  If nothing else, I'll drag my sorry butt to the gym tomorrow for a good workout.  I always feel better after, and at least I'll know I made an effort.  

To all my friends in London, take care and be safe.  I know the bomb threat has probably passed, but please be safe.  

I'm going to watch some more Sherlock Holmes.  Today is my third day of a three day weekend, and I've been watching my Ronald Howard Sherlock Holmes. I found the whole season for only $5!  I love Hastings!  I'm on the last disk now, and I must say, I'm really loving this show!  Too bad the director's wife is crazier than a March Hare!

Hi, all!

I'm still alive.  I haven't really been doing anything much lately except work and sleep and work.  The new schedule is still throwing me off. I like being able to sleep in, but getting off at 10 makes it hard to get to sleep much before midnight, and I find myself sleeping until abut 10.  I'm trying to get my body used to going to be at midnight, getting up at 9, and then going for a long walk.   I still want to lose 30 pounds before I go to England, so hopefully I can keep this up. I have to keep watching my diet, too.  Not eating out, which I can't really afford anyway, and eating healthy.

In other news, OMG, I'm almost finished with my giant Holmes story!  It's a little over 80000 words now, and will probably end up abou 85000.  Umm.  Would anyone like to beta it for me?  It goes from PG-13 to NC-17, which is a first for me, but I don't think it's too bad.  Or does anyone know where I can find a beta? I figure once I get it finished and have someone do  a look over I can start posting.  Yay!

Also, on the Sherlock front, I got a new jacket!  Or, well, actually, I don't have it yet, I put it on layaway, but I'll have it next payday!  It's really warm, and so pretty!  It's a deep gray wool, almost military.  I'll have to take a picture when I get it and show you all my new coat! Really, I haven't had a new coat in, goodness, years. I love my military trench coat, but it doesn't fit me very well now that I've gained weight.  I was 40 pounds lighter when I first got it, after all.  But I call this new one my Sherlock coat because it kind of looks like the coat Benedict Cumberbatch wore in the new Sherlock series.  Heee.  I'm such a geek!  

Not much else going on, really.  In a sudden urge to be productive I've gone back and started tagging my journal, because I'm horrible and didn't tag ANYTHNG!  So that's being fixed.  It's been kind of weird, reading all my old posts.  I've been posting since 2004, so there's been a lot of stuff to tag!  I'm in 2009 now, though, so almost done! 

OK, I hope everyone is doing all right.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

I have some new icons!  Heee!  Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sadynax for turning her amazing artwork into these beautiful icons!

Hello, all!  I'm still alive!  

I know my last post was pretty grim, and I haven't posted in a while.  But I am doing much, much better.  The money issue has mainly sorted itself out in that I have vowed not to make myself sick overthinking things.  I'm going to do the best I can, and it will work itself out. 

I had 6 days off this past week, from Thursday until yesterday, Tuesday.  It was so nice!  My mom and I took my sister back to Seattle on Thursday to say goodbye before she takes off for England, and then I spent Saturday at our local county fair.  I indulged and had a corndog, a caramel apple, and a giant lemonade, lol.  Also, I splurged and bought myself some earrings for 6$. I was very proud of myself for only going on 3 rides, and just enjoying the day.

Monday I went to Ellensburg, about 2 hours from where I live, to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] enkiduts and have our very own fangirl day of squeeing over Holmes.  

Also, I got new tires on my car, since the old ones were almost literally about to die a painful death, and got my oil changed.  Thank God for credit cards, even though just the thought of how much it cost is enough to make me wince.  Still... It had to be done.

Anyway, now I am back at work.  It's been pretty quiet today, and I'm fighting off a headache that seems to have come out of nowhere. I was actually pretty excited to be back at work. I have a new schedule, hence the long weekend.  Now I work Wed-Sat, which isn't nearly as nice as the Sun-Wed, but oh well.  I still get my three day weekend, and this will actually work out better because the family usually has Sunday off.  

Anyway, that's my boring life.  I hate this new twitter/ facebook thing.  Good God, LJ, get your head out of your ass!  Sheesh.  I think you can all guess what my policy is on linking, but if not, please don't.  

And that's about it.  How are you all doing?  I've been following everyone's LJ, but if anything new and exciting is happening, let me know.  I love you all!

I'm bored, so you all get thinky thoughts.  This is what happens when work is slow.  Also, a bit of a warning. I'm very opinionated, and some of my opinions are not to everyone's liking.  If you don't like, polite discussion is encouraged, but flames will be deleted.  I'm not trying to shove my thoughts down anyone's throat, and kindly ask you to refrain from the same.

Have I scared you off yet?  If not, then please keep reading and let me know what you think. 

Here there be dragons.... )

So, there's my opinion. I know, very long winded, sorry about that.  And I still don't know if I said what I had hoped to say.  But I'm out of words now, and would like to hear what you think, if any of you followed along this far.  Talk to me, people!

SH Story!

I love doing chat support.  I get to listen to my MP3 player and don't have to deal with people screaming at me.  At worst, they capslock me, lol.  Just listened to Pink's Rock Star, and every time I hear that I think of a really cool Sherlock Holmes fanvid i love.  It makes the workday go so much more quickly when you get that little taste of fandom to go with it.

So, in order to keep myself relatively sane between long stretches of nothingness,  you all get... Drablets!  Or maybe they're fibles?  Ficlets!  Anyway, you're getting little story dribbles that have been popping into my head but are not full blown.  I'm really sorry in advance for spamming you all.  Today is my Friday, but I work an extra shift tomorrow, so you should only be bothered for another day or so.  At least I'm entertaining?  *grin*

My weekend has been deliciously boring.  I bought Rob Thurman's new book, Chimera, yesterday, and am just over halfway through. I love that new book feeling!

I have to admit that I indulged and purchased a computer game today.  I can count on one hand the times I've purchased a computer game, but it was Sherlock Holmes, and there were 5 games included.  I can only resist so much, lol!

Now I'm at work, doing an overtime shift.  I'm supposed to work from 5-10, but I'm not feeling good so think I may leave a bit early.  I'll still get some extra money, and the rush seems to be over for the night, so the extra help won't be as necessary as when I got in.

Still, I'm having a wonderful weekend, and plan on sleeping in again tomorrow, and maybe even taking a nap!

Yeah, my life is boring.  I'm OK with that.  :)

I hope everyone had a good Friday.  Does anyone have any exciting weekend plans?  I figure if I get really ambitious I may go see a movie!

Went over to my mom's today and she gave me some doilies she had picked up at a store that was going out of business.  The whole time I was talking to her  and she said the word doilies, I had to bite my tongue to keep from saying in a very Holmes' way, "Hmmmm.  Doilies."  Now I believe I must watch the movie again, because obviously it has not infected my brain enough.

It is snowing outside, big fluffy flakes that are covering everything.  I don't want to think about driving home in it, but it looks lovely.

Trying to decide if I want to brave the weather and see Sherlock Holmes again tonight with a friend.  Not that Sherlock Holmes isn't totally worth it, but if it starts to ice over, I think I'll have to forgo the pleasure of the good detective's company for another day. 

Don't really have plans for tonight, other than the aforementioned movie.  I don't usually party or drink that much, and the idea of a nice evening in, snuggling with my kitties and watching one of the movies I got for Christmas, sounds pretty appealing.  Then again, so does Sherlock Holmes with a friend, lol.

Anyway, I hope you are all safe and sound and enjoying your New Year's Eve day.  I can't wait for the New Year to start and all the adventures it will bring!  Take care, and see you next year!
piplover: (Happy fan!)
Went with my mom to see Sherlock Holmes today and OMG I loved it!
