Oh man, I pretty well fell off the face of LJ and DW. I haven't posted in about a year. TERRIBLE. At least I have TF Valentines to always bring me back?

Dreamwidth and Live journal! DW in particular was really sparse this year, but apparently the edit box and my phone don't get along, so I couldn't add mine in. I miss pretty much everyone here though.

It seems like I'm a one-obsession-at-a-time kind of person, and right now my obsession is dragons instead of Transformers. I kind of wish there would be a decent TF movie to pull me back over here... but at the same time, my dragons are so awesome.




Heck yeah. This definitely beats a movie about Bumblebee. *shakes fist in Michael Bay's general direction*

Letter Meme
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
So I figured I should post something one of these days. And [personal profile] sharpest_asp gave me the letter R. It was surprisingly difficult.


Something I hate: Raisins. Eugh.

Something I love: Ramin Djawadi's music. I think he's really talented and really really underappreciated.

Somewhere I've been: Rhode Island. Gosh, it's so tiny. I'm pretty sure I've been to cities that are bigger than Rhode Island.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Reno. I've been through there a lot, but there's a truck stop on the east side that's right next to a marina that has a fantastic walking path. There's also a decent diner and a movie theater within walking distance, it's basically perfect. (I have no interest in casinos though. Casinos depress the heck out of me.)

Someone I know: ...the only R people I can think of that I know irl are kind of terrible, so I'll pass on this one I guess. XD

A film I like: Robocop. Oh man, it's so good.

A book I like: Roget's Thesaurus. It's a good 'un as long as you don't overuse it.



Comment here if you want a letter to answer! ...I'm too lazy to do another letter myself. It's almost bedtime for me. XD

WHALE WATCHING OMG
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
The day after Botcon I went on a whale-watching trip from the Aquarium of the Pacific. It was completely amazing. We went a couple of miles out to sea and found two fin whales, a mother and a nearly-grown calf, who were out feeding. They were very tolerant of the boat interrupting them, and swam really close to us! It was thrilling. At one point, one of them stayed motionless next to the boat, just watching the boat. I wonder what whales think of us.

picturesssssCollapse )

After Botcon, I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific down in Long Beach, because I love me some aquariums. They had a lot of cool exhibits! I also went whale-watching which has enough pictures to be in its own post, so I'm making that one after this.

so many picturesCollapse )

BOTCON PICTURES?!
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
A while back I all-too-presciently reported on Twitter that I had loaded pictures from my phone onto my laptop, so I could make a Botcon post "sometime this year." Well, with my customary promptness, that sometime is now. So here's some pictures!

Under cut for tidiness.Collapse )
And that's all the good pictures, I think!

I spent most of the day with Razzie, dragondancer515, tainry, and various other people whose names I can't remember, oops. It was a lot of fun, we hung out and did silly things and went to dinner and then I got Razzie and Dragon cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory! It was delicious. I also bought some prints and stuff to send to people. I... might still have a few things to send? >__> I can't quite remember. /forgetful and flaky

The day after Botcon, I went out to the Aquarium of the Pacific and took a whale-watching trip! But that's for another post.

Mandatory Fun!

Weird Al Yankovic has a new album out today. I love it so much.

"Word Crimes" is my new theme song. Especially the part about smacking people with a crowbar.

HOW ABOUT THAT BOTCON EH
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
(Two posts in one day? Crazy!)

Who all is going to Botcon? I am, and I hope to see you there!

I haven't made solid plans, because I don't really trust dispatch's ability to get me anywhere on time, but my tentative schedule is to come in to the LA area on the morning of the 20th, leave the truck at the truck stop in Ontario, rent a car from the airport, and drive over to Pasadena. So I will have wheels for the whole weekend. If you need a ride to someplace, don't be afraid to ask! I might as well get a lot of use out of it since I'm renting it for an entire weekend and don't really plan to go anywhere for most of it.

I'm still hoping to be able to nab a bit of room space with... well, anyone really. I can sleep on the floor, I'm pretty quiet, and I'll pay a share for every day of Botcon even if dispatch messes up and gets me in late. The alternative is for me to get my own hotel room somewhere, which would give me a good spot to park the rental car, but it would be rather expensive, and lonely. On the bright side, if I do get my own room and anyone is still looking for a roomie I'd be more than willing to share. That'll be a pretty last-minute thing though.

Also, I want to take people out to The Cheesecake Factory on Saturday night! I love The Cheesecake Factory! And I'll treat ya! Who is the "people" I want to take, you might ask? Well, pretty much anyone who knows me and isn't going to the awards dinner. I'm hoping that's not too many people, but most everyone does go to the awards dinner, so it will probably be a small group. And even if it isn't, I have the money for it and I feel like doing it, so there. So if you don't feel like going to the awards dinner, hit me up. c:

Flight Rising wheeeee
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
So I joined Flight Rising a few days ago, and holy crap it's addictive. I got sucked in immediately.

My starter dragon is named Twitter after my truck, and she is beautiful.




(I actually got switched to a new truck two months ago, but I still think of the old one as "my" truck because I was on her for two years, she was a much better truck in every respect, and dammit, I miss her. *cough* Anyway...)

My username is eeliesecks! If you're on FR too, let's be friends and trade dragons and stuff! If you've got any Skydancer dragons you don't want, feel free to stick me with them. The Skydancers are my favorite. :D

VALENTIMES
Wherever You Are
xxsomeoneelsexx
I finally have good internet, woo! So: if you haven't seen them, check out the Dreamwidth post and both LJ posts to see if you have some! There were some for Tumblr and Twitter too. owo

Thanks to everybody who participated! (Even the late ones! <3) And thanks especially to [personal profile] wicked3659 and [personal profile] thousanth, without whom I couldn't have managed this year. Y'all are fantastic.

Just a reminder for next year, remember to put valentines intended for Livejournal on the Livejournal post, and include the usernames! We recognize a lot of people in the fandom, but we don't know everybody's usernames, so be sure they're there and spelled right please. :3

An awkward text box so you can copy the banner and links to put anywhere! Fly, my pretties! FLY! :D
