((BWEE. Oh hell's bells, this is fun. The Lobo ParaMilitary Christmas Special - I've only seen snippets of Lobo before, once in an old, old comic with him attacking Big Barda's ship for reasons I didn't have the context to know and just now in a Justice League cartoon. I've always had a bit of a soft spot for him, though I did have only a couple of pages of this old comic to go on, and I've never really been sure why aside from the fact that the guy is Badass with a capital B.

The live-action version just makes for more squee. ^_^))
((Ohhh, I like this outfit. I feel like a cross between Indiana Jones and that one cowboy in every film that wears a black duster.

*swings around the curve of the stairway at work; coat billows, sheer glass walls catch the reflections in a million directions, glances out from under the hat brim and grins*

...'Course, the frilly shirt is probably far too poofy for Indy and too impractical for a cowboy, but I feel like a badass Indiana Wilde-Jones-Hiccough anyway. ;) ))

((Okay, now it's official. No ifs, ands or buts, aside from maybe the headcast's - WE HAS A HOUSE! :D

And it's a HELL of a house, let me tell you. I hadn't realised how absolutely frigid the Colony was before we moved here; I was actually comfortable sitting in the living room - huge! Comfy! Soon to be having a sofa in it! - at gone midnight and wasn't that much more than 'a bit chilly.' ;)

And! And! We have a working shower, a huge bath, a bathroom that looks like something from Arabian Nights, a kitchen I can actually cook in, winding stairs with a big old wooden door separating the upstairs from the downstairs which is just awesome on principle as well as keeping the noise down and the warm in, an oven which I swear is like something out of Girl Genius...

...Oh yeah. I'm happy. ^_^ I'm far more relaxed than I've been for a good six months, though I've yet to stop jumping like a kicked cat every now and again - I feel like I've just been rescued from an animal sanctuary. *sighs*

And there are flowers everywhere! There's a rose bush curling around the shed in the back garden, and the garden has a pond for pretending we have waterlilies - I don't know if there are any or not, but unfortunately I'm an optimist ;) - and there are ivy-tiles around the oven and ivy painted on the basin in the bathroom. :D ...And did I mention the stained glass window in the bathroom? *flails!* This is so many shades of awesome!

We don't have the internet hooked up yet, but fingers crossed that getting the phone line won't take too long. I can't remember how long it took getting the Colony connected the first time around... :/ Regardless, I can get to my email once a day at work, and everyone who needs it has my number, yes? *cuddles all* Basically, me and Koi and Mikki are home and safe and thoroughly squeeful. We managed to cook dinner in a clean kitchen for the first time in months! I squee!

You lot take care of yourselves, okay? *dances happily, cuddles all and goes to collapse from lugging boxes*))
((So I drew a pic of a fic from one of my favourite writers and posted it in a comment on her journal, as did a couple of better-artist-friends of hers.

...She posted mine up with her other prettypics in her journal. And she squeed. And I'm squeaking. *is fangirling just a little* And my paid account ran out just in time for me not to have a happyflail icon to hand, but believe me I'm flailing like a good'un. *_*))
((I can has a new phone! :D

I'd been thinking about going to a contract phone for a while now, purely because I always seem to run out of credit at the least opportune moment and I'm using my phone more now, for various reasons, so I wandered into the phone shop with Rath this afternoon - and somehow came out with a new phone for free. *kablink!*

All I can say is, all hail having a big sis that's good at recommending that particular phone shop to people. And who doesn't mind having her fifty quid cashback thingy translating into 'free phone for 'Bootses'. I am clearly just the jammiest git in all creation. *loves on sis!*

And it plays music! *dances madly* Apparently it's got a camera as well, but I really don't give a wossname about that right at the minute because this feels a lot like something is being made up for all the palarver with my Soundwave. *hearts* And it's black! And shiny!

...Did I mention that I'm really not fussy, so long as a phone makes and takes calls and texts? ^^;;

The number's still the same, if anyone needs to get hold of me, so that's another bonus - no swapping my numbers over manually! Yes!

Oh, and one other little bitty thing...

((BWAHAHAH! I've found the DVD I've been looking for for months! *cackles madly* Gotta catch 'em all, hah! >D


I might be overreacting just a LITTLE bit, but I find myself in a ridiculously good mood for some reason. ^_^ Half my stuff is packed up ready to move, the Council Tax thing is sorted - though I'm waiting for the others to pay me back, and no, Mikki, that's not an invitation to fret ;p - I can give the estate agents the info about my job on monday (though I want to prod the woman in HR that didn't reply to my boss yesterday, gah - and Dad's coming over tomorrow to give me a hand with the gardening. All in all, aside from having no internet at home and missing you guys, things are looking up. :)

Found you, my proud beatuty, hah! *over-reacting, definitely*
((Now, I haven't played a computer game for a good while. Mostly because it's Mikki's PS2 and I've never been allowed anywhere near any workings more complicated than the on-off switch on my brother's PS2 before now, and even that was tricky when he was throwing a hissy fit. (Ben, obviously, not Mikki.) So I've only played on Guitar Hero with Mikki and Rath a couple of times in the recent few, er, years or so, and once on a minigame of one of Mikki's other games whosenameIcan'trememberrightnowahem.

Until tonight, anyway. Mikki let me try out a couple of his games - The Warriors, which had me in fits because there were SO MANY BUTTONS DAMNIT that I couldn't keep track of what I was doing if you paid me, and the Ghost Rider game after that. I don't think Mikki's ever actually seen me play a game that didn't involve a chibi ninja or a plastic guitar before. ;)

Okay. Whilst The Warriors had me a little frustrated, because good god if I didn't keep getting lost and turned around and unable to read the damn map because of all the bloody sidestreets and I kept getting jumped by the other $%^&* gang and the steering was so hair-trigger I ended up running into un unbreakable bloody window, the Ghost Rider game I absolutely LOVE. Beating things up in a satisfying fashion! Readily-available special attacks that don't involve a fiddly combo sequenc to use! FLAMING BIKE! Kicking the shit out of so many demons my hands still ache and loving every minute of yelling at the screen and making Mikki glee!

...I had fun. ^_^))

You're pretty perfect, as far as things go. A little too crazy to be normal, a little too sweet to be crazy. You value the lives of other living creatures and probably have a thing for babies.

At the same time, you're more than likely the one who tells the homeless person asking for change that you're the minion of some dark god and cannot possibly share His spoils....either that, or you're the guy/gal who sits down with the man for a serious discussion on theology.

((Yaaay! Fuzzy! :D))

((So...you know the shiny, shiny Soundwave .mp3 player I was raving about a while back? Yeah, that one. Mine arrived in the post this morning, just when I was about to leave for work, so I came back tonight all excited and looking forward to play with my shiny.

No such luck.

Batteries are in, .mp3s on the minidisk, headphones in, and - nothing happens. I get a blue light coming up on one side of his chest when I hold down the play/pause button, but other than that - nothing.

Someone help out a very perplexed 'creature and give me a hint of what I'm doing wrong? Please? God knows I'm not one of the world's greatest with technology, but you'd think I'd be able to manage this.))
((YES YES YES YES! It's taken me forbloodyever, but my shiny, shiny mood theme's finally working! *dances for joy*

...And I think I'm coming down with something. *flops* Argh...))
((I have to find this episode in English, come hell or high water! *flails madly*

...Also, for the curious, my James mood theme is coming along in- er, well, jerks and starts, but it's moving again! Rar!))

((EDIT: This fits Team Rocket perfectly in so many directions, and the clips make me flail... And this one, if you can overlook the song (which actually fits James all too well for his paycheque to support...) has some fantastic clips of the two of them in disguise - not to mention loads of James moments. ^_^! Plus there's one very, very quick exchange in this one, about two minutes in, that I desperately need to find in episode form - Jesse and James getting their outfits confused. This time James was actually meant to be the guy this time, guys!))
((I desperately wish I had headphones with me. This looks fantastic - it's got a tonne of Team Rocket's different disguises and schemes to grab Pikachu and the three of them generally being Awesome, and I can't hear what's going on! *flails*

It doesn't help that I've had both their more memorable songs stuck in my head for upwards of five days now...

...I think I might be stuck with them. ^_^ ))

((EDIT: ...Double trouble. Er. I might've kinda-sorta drawn Jesse and James as Pokemon, though I'm far more happy with Jesse - James is meant to look more like a cat in my head, not a kangaroo. XP

And if I can ever work out how to draw anime lower-bodies properly, I need more reference episodes! :D I might finish this pic. Rath chose the hat. ;) ))
((DO WANT. *cheers*

Even though I know full well I wouldn't be able to do that on medium, even, if I tried. ^_^;

This, on the other hand, just about makes my eyes pop out.

...Speaking of which, watching both of those one after the other is making it look like my computer screen is melting, excuse me... @_@))

((EDIT: Well, they look like they're having fun. :D RL version of Wayward Son; though the band makes me think of muskateers, BtVS' Tara with a beard and when my mum used to plait my hair so it would fluff out almost as much as that guy's. *sheepish grin*))
((Pepper! I just got my birthday present! *openopenopens*


*promptly melts like a melting thing at the story* *cuddles tight and doesn't let go* Love you too, darlingest. *kiss!*

Andandand pretties...thank you, love! *squeaks and snuggles tight and doesn't take them off*

...Um. Maybe I'd better find something not-pyjamalike to wear and go to my exam... *trots about, still squeaking quietly*

(And as a quick note, I won't be back online until thursday night at the earliest. I've got a couple of days of invigilating lined up after the exam today and mum's computer is up the chute, so - no internet. :O See you guys later...and go fuss Roddy some. He's being adorable again. ;))
