OH INTERNET

I'VE BEEN SO BAD AT YOU. Today is the first day since we opened the new store on Sept. 30 that we actually have internet at the front. I never realized how much time I spent on LJ and poking at the webs at my job in the morning until I didn't have the chance. And in the evenings there has been much to do since [livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces has been gracing us with her starry presence, being adorable and charming and much more clever than all of us. She was really sick for the first few days, which was sad, but I totally fixed her by making poutine. No really. Okay well I tried.

I have so much to say but I feel like I'm always throwing massive walls of text at people, so I've broken it up into handy subsections.





-So we moved. That happened.
-Every day someone asks me how I like the new space, and this is my answer: I like not having to worry about whether or not the store will smell like a sewer backed up when I come in. Because although I was getting really good at running around Febrezing the whole store before people came in, it got old fast. It's nice to have everything closer together when I'm behind the counter by myself, but when there's more than two people back there, it gets quickly crowded. And the elevator is uh...gonna be its own magical issue, especially in the winter. But it's mostly positive.
-Except for the part where we still don't know where half the shit we packed is, and it's all strew across the hallway labyrinth downstairs. I think we finally located the credit card machine paper, though. That only took a week.
-We're still missing some of the shelves, so the documentary section is mostly still in boxes.
-It is a nice bright space and I may have actually been in a better mood at work than usual, which was weird. But yesterday I was so bored I honestly considered climbing the furniture, so I guess the spell is broken.
-We're near so many nice food places it's kind of awful. Within a 50 foot radius there is a fantastic ice cream shop, a Japanese restaurant, a Sichuan Chinese restaurant, a crappy cheap Chinese place (but they have bubble tea akjfhaksdjk) , and directly upstairs is a fantastic coffee shop that has reasonably priced delicious sandwiches and tea lattes on the menu. ON THE MENU. Which means I don't have to describe them to people anymore oh god it's amazing sobsobsob
-I still have another picture of me in a box during the move.
-I will never move this fucking store again.






-There were Jewish holidays! They happened! I atoned! [livejournal.com profile] infinityduck work a very handsome suit! I wore my tallis for the first time since my Bat Mitzvah. I got blisters from shoes that I thought would not do such terrible things. It was all very holy and such. It's about the time of year when I should watch "Ushpizin" too.
-Laaaast Monday [livejournal.com profile] jou and I drove to Chicago to retrieve the aforementioned [livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces. We have eaten much the food and watched the films and she yodeled the cat and brought me a beautiful guinea pig necklace that I have to take pictures of because it's amazing. I made her an ipod case with a kitty face on it and we took pictures of her punching me in the face. I don't want her to go away. ;_;
-Saturday is [livejournal.com profile] monkeybobert's wedding, and I'll see [livejournal.com profile] kleptoneko for the first time in like 3 years.
-I started cutting out felt bits to make Erik and Charles dolls, and made some sketches for Avengers dolls because [livejournal.com profile] feels_like_fire got all excited about the idea.
-I've decided to worry that I have leukemia because I'm always tired and I feel like I bruise easily. I need to get blood drawn anyway, so this is a good excuse. Even though me and blood draws involve lots of hysterical laughing and wailing.
-There's a lot of memes I need/want to do.
-Last Wednesday was [livejournal.com profile] caffeaffogato's birthday, and we celebrated over the weekend by making all the gyoza. Yesssss.






-So um...yeah I haven't been writing. At all. About three weeks or so ago, sometime before the work move, I tried to write a scene for my STBB and it turned into horribleness and ashes and since then I've been afraid to go back and that's very very bad because now there are two artsy people counting on me and Saturday will be the middle of October oh god why.
-But what's also I problem? I have a NEW MOST STUPID PAIRING EVER. Because [livejournal.com profile] feels_like_fire got me to see "Captain America" and reblogs all the stuff all the time, and I became exposed to the magic of Steve Rogers vs. The Future.

I don't give a crap about Marvel. I have never cared for comic books or superheroes. But adorable fucking Steve Rogers not being able to use technology? APPARENTLY YOU CAN SIGN ME UP FOR THAT.

And because Kat is a bad influence, she was like "PLAY WITH ME IN THE DARKNESS" and I was like "OKAY" and she was like "BRING A JOHN CHO CHARACTER" and I was like "But all the Sulus belong to Kirks!"

So here is where we've ended up:



and



Fucking Steve Rogers/Harold Lee.

You don't even want to know what's going on in my head these days, it's a hot (but amazing) mess. But now I'm all sad on tumblr when there is nothing but Tony/Steve, and I'm all "INTERNET, WHY DON'T YOU SHIP THE DUMB THINGS I MAKE UP?"

This is like every time I've been sad that I can't find fanart of Alsuka. I'm so bad at things.






-I love pigs, I love every kind of pig, I just want to hug them all, but I can't. Can't hug every pig...
-[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces wanted to bathe the girls, so we did that yesterday and it was fabulous. She's so good with them, and can catch Olivia when no one else can. Although the bath made Olivia mad at everyone and she sat in her drying sack like a shock victim.
-I will have new pigtures of them soooon.
-Also, last Thursday was three years since Oni crossed the Rainbow Bridge.



But there's one thing I'm certain of. As certain as I am of this life, we have nothing to fear when it's over. -Scully, "Dod Kalm"

Your life is still a blessing. ♥


And I think that's it! I will try to be better at things, and eventually post pictures of [livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces punching me to remind myself I need to write and stuff.

Now to stare at the walls at my job and try to put off going to the happiness coffee shop of wonder upstairs for a little longer.

[livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces got Oz to yodel? Eeeeeee!

Aww, I miss you guys. Happy Jewish holidays! I must say, I'm intrigued by your new ship. I may just have to watch "Captain America" when it comes out on DVD. (Or, wait - I think it may be out already.)

I will punch you if it helps you write!

Also, I am having brain block with my fic, too. If you would like to get together to brainstorm in the hopes we kickstart each other, I would be amenable to your help.
