Sure is dusty around here...

Wow.  I haven't been on here in over five years.  Doesn't seem that long ago that I was on here every day.  It sure has changed!  Looks like I've got a lot to relearn.  ^_^;

I'll be completely honest and say that as excited as I am to be back, the reasoning isn't quite as joyous as I'd like it to be.  You see, in the last couple of years, I've gotten back to my fandom roots and rekindled my love of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  The new cartoon on Nickelodeon is very much to 'blame' because it is amazingly done and if you haven't seen it yet SHAME ON YOU!  XD  The new show also did something very important.  It helped me get over my cane shaking, "it will never be as good as the 80s show" attitude problem with the 2003 show long enough to finally sit down and watch the first season on Youtube.  Sadly, I now realize that I missed out on a fantastic series.  :(  That'll teach me to judge something without ever REALLY watching it.

This rekindled obsession did one more thing for me.  It got me into reading fan fiction again.  :)  I was having a grand old time reading and writing TMNT fan fiction over on DeviantArt as well as finding all kinds on fantastic TMNT fan art.  That is, until this past week.  Apparently some (bites her lip in an effort to keep from cursing) diddybags have nothing better to do with their time than to target the truly wonderful TMNT authors and artists on DA for harassment.  Simply because these authors and artist happen to support/write/draw tcest.  And the absolutely enraging part about it all is that these prats seem to have the support of at least one of DA's moderators.  Fan fics are being removed by the hundreds!  It's far worse than anything I've seen happen to the DBZ yaoi community on DA.  As a result, many of the authors and some of the artist are returning to their roots here on LJ...and I have followed them.  I refuse to miss out on so much as one LINE of creativity from any of the talented authors and artists because a handful of small minded people feel the need to spread their hatred and make things miserible for everyone.

Will I fully leave DA?  Probably not.  I've made a few friends there and I don't want to leave them.  But I definitely will NOT be purchasing a premium membership like I'd been thinking about doing.  They don't deserve a penny of my money.

Will I start posting my own fan fictions here as well?  I...really don't know.  I've only posted my work on either my own site which is now so defunct you can't even search for its name anymore or DA.  I have no clue of how to go about doing it here.  Would I just make a journal entry like I'm doing now?  Like when I was writing my D&D character's backstory (man, I really need to get back to that)?  Or is there more to it than that?  Not to mention, I'm not sure my writing is...worthy.  So many beautiful stories here...I worry that my writing would just be in the way.

(rolls her eyes and shakes her head)  I know...my confidence is overwhelming. 


Here's to a hopefully awesome year!  May everyone have a great one!  Hugs all around!  XD


I hope that everyone is having a wonderful Christmas!  Have a great time and stuff yourselves silly with good food!  As for me...I'm making my first attempt at cooking quail in a few moments.  Wish me luck!  ^^;
But this one, was one of my favorites.  And it fits the time of year it is!  :D


On the twelfth day of Christmas, captain_vegeta sent to me...
Twelve star wars drumming
Eleven friends piping
Ten bones a-leaping
Nine cats dancing
Eight tigers a-milking
Seven animals a-swimming
Six elves a-driving
Five fo-o-o-orgotten realms
Four video games
Three specialty coffees
Two taking pictures
...and an anime in a final fantasy.
Get your own Twelve Days:
...but I thought it was a SCREAM!

For a Trekkie/Trekker...this is a scream!

Just saw this on the Star Trek Community I watch and wanted to share with my dear friends!  :D

What were they thinking?

This article is dumbfounding.  I've seen some fucked up toys ideas before, but this...THIS takes the cake!  I don't know whether to rage at just how offensive this thing is or cry at the shamlessness of it.  Especially since not a penny of the money they get for this doll will go to help the injustice they are using as this doll's gimick. 

Two post in one day! Damn!

After such a long absence with posting, I shock myself!

I have exciting news...at least it is to me.  One of my best friends just called me to tell me that her new little girl, Julia, has been born!  YAY!  Gotta go see her today!  ...Gotta go buy some baby stuff too!  XD


Writer's Block: Shopping spree confessions

If you could choose a $1,000 gift certificate for one online store, which would it be and what would you get? Would you share the love with your friends?
Oh God.  I have several stores that I would like to get gift certificates from.  Amazon, Ebay (if certificates like that exist for it), ThinkGeek and Rightstuf would be most awesome!  As for sharing with my friends, most definitely!  I mean, if I see something they would like, I'm more than likely going to buy it for Christmas or birthday anyway.  So, with the money being spent one way or the other, being cheap with the gift certificate but not bank account makes very little sense to me!  :D
