Astoria! [19 Oct 2010|08:44pm]
So, today was my real, actual last day at the zoo (I extended my internship for a little longer), and I was about to post pictures I took today, but when I was dumping my memory stick, I realized that I had a bunch of pictures of the wild California sea lions we saw when I went to Astoria earlier in the year. So I'm posting them today instead, because they're fun.

Lazy pinnipeds!Collapse )

So I was getting ready for bed tonight, come into my room, and notice something stuck to my window - something very odd looking. My room is half-underground; the windows are right at ground level, so I'm used to slugs crawling across my window from time to time, and I get the occasional cat or raccoon scraping its paws on the glass (which really dirties it up, as you'll see later). This was weird, though. It looked like a mass hanging from some sort of sticky thread. Upon closer inspection, it was actually two slugs, wrapped around one another, with some weird white sac hanging from their heads:

What the hell is this?Collapse )

Everyone's at Sakuracon except meeeee! I'm stuck here in class. :( Waaaughhhh I'm gonna be a big baby about it.

On an even nerdier note (more than whining about an anime convention?), someone please take these baby larvitars/gibles/eevees/staryus/riolus off my hands; my boxes are filling up! I can't put them on the ranch until Nintendo releases a Platinum patch and I feel bad releasing them. :(

don't read this please [29 Mar 2009|12:51am]

I am very angry about my pokemans! >:( How am I going to smash through battle tower and get the sweet star on my card without the perfect set of moves/stats?

In unrelated news, I'm not looking forward to classes starting up again on Monday, since they're much earlier and my commute will take me riiiight through the morning rush hour. Bad times!

Quick Question [11 Mar 2009|05:08pm]
Did Livejournal change the layout/format of the little top bar that appears over communities/friends pages? Or did this just happen because I updated some add-ons in my browser?

Instead of doing my homework well in advance like a good student, I got the sewing bug this weekend. I had some cute plaid from Hobby Lobby that I bought about two years ago lying in my room, and I'd completely forgotten about it!

(Click for big - sorry for cameraphone shot.)

I'm getting a little sick of sewing lolita stuff all the time, so it's nice to have something for everyday wear. There's an invisible zipper hidden inside one of the pleats, so it turned out pretty seamless. The hemline's done by machine, but the thread I used matched exactly, so that's pretty much invisible too - I'm happy with it.

Woo, I can wear it tomorrow. :) Now back to homework!

I went to my blood donation appointment today, and the reception lady asked, "since you have O- blood, would you be interested in doing a double-red donation today?" I said I had no idea what that was, but sure!


First, I got bumped to the head of the line (haha, suckers). Then they hooked me up to this awesome machine that took my blood, centrifuged it to separate my red blood cells from my plasma, collected each in separate bags, then returned my plasma to me along with some saline and anticoagulant (which makes your lips all tingly!). Then they did it again! The net result is that I gave twice the amount of RBCs than usual whole blood donation, but I ended up with more liquid in me than I started due to the return of the plasma plus the saline, so I wasn't all dehydrated or anything. Plus the volunteers and staff that ran this blood drive were way more friendly and helpful than the ones at CCC. Some poor girl next to me passed out after donating, though. It was her first time, too. :(
But man, all those tubes and spinny things and machinery! It was so neat!

On an unrelated note, I saw this in a stairwell:

Really? You're such a vegan that you need to graffiti it? Plus it's in quotes! Are these scare quotes; are you being sarcastic and you're really a meat eater? Or is being a vegan just super cool and you need to let everyone on the second floor know? I just don't get it!!

And with my last final behind me, this term of school is officially over. I'm so happy, I made out with all As! Even in chemistry! And the mailman came yesterday, with a box for me~

(Pardon the ugly '70s carpet and the cat who ducked in at the last minute.)
Finally, some black shoes that aren't boots! The ribbon's way short, though, so I'm gonna swap that thing out. But yeah, good day overall yesterday.

Ray and I are goin' to Sakuracon after all, so next weekend will be fun! Anyone going to be in Seattle then?

I'm now old enough to do what I want to do, plus some things I don't want to do. [30 Jul 2005|12:16pm]

I love the sound of a slightly exaggerated "R" in the word "through."

I also love my ability to get my work done at the very last possible moment.

I was on my way home from class today and came to the realization that these people should not drive:

- Women
- Old men in hats
- Women on cell phones (for emphasis)

Also, what's with all the people from Washington driving around here? Don't you have your own state to not use your turn signals in?
