((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. ^_^))

((Pepper!))

((Pepper Pepper Pepper I just got your parcel today and OMG THANK YOU! *squeaks and flails over and waves paws in excitement* Huge Box was waiting for me when I got home from London and and and the arm warmers are adorable and the chocolates are nummy and OMG AMERICAN FOOD! *squee!* I will write you as much fluff and porn and silliness as you can stand for this, moogledear. I've never seen so much maple syrup in my LIFE. ...Ooh ooh ooh, waffle mix! *is all overcome with shiny* Thank yoooouuu! :D :D :D :D :D
((I have officially assumed the position of shameless attention whore by going up three times and doing kareoke at the local gay bar. *grins* We turned up early, due to a cumulative comedy of errors and my mishearing everything going, but that only really meant we got to pile into the bar after getting something to eat at CB2s, so that was fine. ^_^

We then discovered that they do very, very nice cocktails - and with hindsight I'm surprised that we didn't make more jokes about that - and had a couple between us seeing as how they came in jugs. And yes, there were already pre-written jokes about that on the cocktail menu. ;)

We got Mikki to do kareoke, which was awesome, and I did House of the Rising Sun, Black Velvet and La Isla Bonita - luckily for all concerned, we left before I could settle on doing Build me up Buttercup and make Rath and Seiber headdesk. *grins* Apparently I was pretty good, though I could hear my voice cracking in the higher bits of Black Velvet. >_>

So, so doing that again. ^____________^ Though preferably without the stoned girl coming over, glomming onto Mikki and rubbing his head on her boobs.))
((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. ;) ))

((Bweee!))

((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*))
((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...

WE GOT THE HOUSE! :D))
((This is wonderful! I'd not seen the video before, and they all look like they're having so much fun! *hearts madly*))
((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. ^_^))
((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...))
((After waking up at twenty to four this morning with godawful stomach cramps and the certainty I was going to spend the night throwing up, I actually had a really good day at work. Well, aside from getting rained on during the walk in. ^_^; I more than doubled my speed in a single day, got 10/10 and 9/10 on the two sections of the job we'd just been taught this past week and a half, and managed not to throw up. ;) Aside from getting absolutely drenched walking back home, and really not minding that thanks to a leather jacket and a wide-brimmed hat, good day!

I even got a cheap laugh on the way home:

Small gaggle of little kids, only one and a half of whom were covered by the umbrella: *stares at the apparition in the purple coat and floppy hat*

Me: *...shrug* *smile nicely as they pass, since they look rather sad and soggy*

Small boy: *as we're passing each other, shouts "COWGIRL!"*

Me: *...blinkblink* *considers this* ^_^!

*two seconds later, it ABSOLUTELY BUCKETS IT DOWN*

Me: *nice and dry in my coat and hat, thinks contentedly of soaking wet screeching kids and grins* Better a cowgirl than soaking wet. ^_^

I'm going to have a nice, hot shower in a minute, I have chocolate cake and the electric bill sorted, and all is right with the world. ^^ Well, aside from the fact that it's continually pissing it down in August. >_>))
((I was trying to draw HW&HD Fluffmoon, I really was. I even looked up uniforms and everything.

Yet, somehow, I ended up with a tiny drawing of ickle baby Artemis instead, and the idea for Fluffmoon has vanished as though it had never been.

Because little!Artemis is Just That Cute.))
((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. ;))
