I'm nearly hysterical with pain.

I have a sinus infection that's triggered a migraine and neither icepack nor meds have done anything.

And Amazon says they delivered my meds to the leasing office on Friday but the leasing office does not have my package. Ian said they seemed more willing to search when he said it was medicine.

I'm going to try and distract myself with this soulmate verse plot bunny I have where you only know it's your soulmate when you can actually orgasm.

It's weird and odd and I think the HP verse is best to explore it.

Holding onto inspiration

I just saved all the pictures of my pins from my "inspiration" board since I figured - I want to be inspired, what if they're goone/I'm offline?

Well, I had 455 pins. And I ended up with 450 files. 3 of the pins were moved to a different board ("other diy") and I encountered one pin that apparently didn't exist. At least pinterest couldn't find it. That leaves one pin I missed saving. Damn. I'm not going to check which one I forgot. Especially considering the many duplicates I found. Pinterest tells me if I try to pin an already pinned pin, but either it's a newer feature (newer in relation to that board) or if two people make a pin from the same website, they're considered different pins and it therefore doesn't realise that.

I just take it to mean that the image is super inspiring :)

It's also fascinating to see how the board changed. The early images (aka the last ones I saved) where people, nature and steam punk with a few buildings/rooms, in the middle I also had some with lamps of some kind or another and most of the newer ones are buildings (a lot of old/abandoned ones with a few modern, architectually "strange" ones) and a bit of nature.

It made me realise that I need more people on that board. Unless I'm mistaken, I started it because I found pins on pinterest that threatened to give me ideas for stories. At the very least, that's what it's for now (still). Giving me ideas for building locations, worlds, sceneries and characters.

I've been really grumpy this weekend.

Sebastian peed in our closet also so that's four places he peed that's not a litter box in two days.

Since he's not my cat he's been banned from our room and I'm keeping the door shut.

Our cat is the only one allowed in.

And our AC is broken again...

So I've just been going around grumpy all weekend.

Should I revive an old fandom?

I didn't think it possible, but I think I might be reviving at least one of my CSI fandoms. Sporadically, I've been looking for crossovers with them (especially CSI/Criminal Minds) throughout the years that were never quite satisifed as the ones I had at one point started to read were still abandoned and there weren't many new ones.

It doesn't help that I quit all three CSI shows around the same time, back ca in 2005/2006. I quit a lot of shows in that time.

My hightime for crime dramas (and how it ended) )

Anyway, lately I've been craving some CSI: Miami. I've still got my DVDs, so one of these days I'll put it on. Naturally, I only thought of it today at 10:30pm. Not exactly a time to start watching a series. Okay, a movie would be an equally bad idea.

Instead of some good crime time, I've spent the weekend watching Youtube (the channels I follow) and Netflix (nature documentaries). I also did some cleaning, cooking and typing up. Oh - and I brought quite a bit of stuff from my balcony to the cellar.

A little writing update

As much as I loath all the time I need to type up my handwritten stories? I sometimes find little gems amongst my writings. Okay, I do get that by reading them as well, but typing up gets rid of the paper :)

Today, while typing up a PoA AU that leads to Hermione and Harry pointing out how far behind muggle studies is (in regards to fashion, science, etc), I have the last line "Dumbledore likes 80s make up"

It somehow makes me think about Dumbledore walking around looking like David Bowie or KISS.

A bit more about typing up, fic organisation and decluttering... )

Maybe I need to do a kind of masterlist (I already have one for my published stories @ [community profile] love_sacrificed) where I list just how many individual stories I have per fandom (and maybe include their main plot categories).

But that's for when I'm done typing up. At this rate, I'll probably need the rest of the year. Hopefully I'm not producing more new stuff to type up than I manage to type up...

Argh cats.

Especially Basshole. My roommates eldest demonspawn.

He peed on my dirty clothes, he peed on the bathroom rug, and probably (could have been Boo or Mercat) peed underneath the box.

I wonder if the alligators in the pond are hungry? (Joke: I'd never hatm the little bastard... And I normally like him. Might even love him but.... Urgh.... CATS

I have a headache so I ended up reading true crime Wikipedia entries. I normally read the solved ones but I ended up reading the unsolved ones and now I can't seem to sleep...

And not just because of the ice pack on my neck.

I feel guilty. A sort of survivor's guilt.

Tampa had been phased to in the words of our mayor take a punch in the face and then Irma shifted course.

During the long night I was happy it stayed on land because the path when it stayed on the gulf before hitting us was the one that would have devastated us.

And then the path shifted. As our local paper said, "Irma staggered along the state like a drunken tourist."

And my section of Tampa was the only part still in the cone... And then even we weren't in the cone.


I was euphoric. It didn't hit us we we're safe, the eye didn't hit us.

Mum (mother in law) was in Georgia, parents were fine, mom was fine, brother was fine...

Then I saw the flooding, the destruction in Jacksonville, in parts of Orlando, in Charleston

And I feel guilty for anxiety fueled euphoria... And yet grateful my home was spared.

Mum's house may be damaged because the area where she lives was closer to the eye path when it was still cat 3 and some parts experienced flooding.

But as she's still in Georgia (leaving today at midday we won't know until later).

And the flooding isn't as bad as Jacksonville and Charleston.

Hello All,

I found this video by Lindsey Stirling that tells a story without words and set in the old west too. I enjoyed it immensely. Thought you might too. :D

Hello All,

At the minute and minute 13 mark of the video below there is Agent Whiskey of the film using a weapon that made me think that Vin Tanner and Buck Wilmington might like one too. :D :D :D
