Hello fellow students! Basically in my drunken stupor last night I came across a bicycle. Being rather intoxicated and far from home I decided the logical thing to do was ride it back...

A Week in the Life of Scott Lang: Superhero (featuring Steve Rogers) by djchika [Scott, Steve/Bucky, Team Cap]
“So what kind of mission needs all of you plus the Ant-man?”
“We are in need of your suit but, more than that, we need your expertise,” Shuri gestured at the others, “As you said we have a genius, a spy and we have our soldiers. What we need is a thief.”
If Scott was in a TV show he’d be staring straight at the camera right now.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow  
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae

Shiny Things  
I VOTED. DID YOU????? (You better have if you live in the US.)

I dated myself on Sunday -- shopping for winter shoes (nice slip on boots for nice casual wear instead of the flats I wear in warm weather and ankle high weather proof boots) and I went to see Bohemian Rhapsody which was fucking beautiful. Everyone should see it.

While at the mall, though, I slipped into Kohl's, remembering that November usually has good deals on summer dresses. I found two, one for $6 and one for $8. I don't know when I'll wear the wine colored one (though if I have to wear it at home drinking wine like the dramatic ass I can be, so be it!), but I know the other will be a good beach/summer shopping day dress.

REMEMBER WHEN....yeah, I miss that  
Every so often I come around to LJ, go through birthday notifs, etc, glance about. There's still folks here - some hardcore cross-posters (i see you, ladies) who did not abandon LJ or DW for tumblr/twit, etc.

Reading all these user names on the birthday lists are giving me a million feels.

I miss you all.

I miss the conversations, moments and interactions that we had, even the heated, ridiculous ones

I miss the art and the fic and the participation we all entered into to make this a living, breathing place

I miss knowing how you are all doing in your lives; the good, the bad and the ugly

I miss seeing many of you IRL regularly at cons, though I am lucky to have some RL fen friends locally. Some of you became like family to me.

I miss you. I hope you are all well, or coping well when life hits you hard, as the case may be - life has a way of kicking your ass, I know.

I hope you have the opportunity and the inspiration to still be creative and responsive and happy in a fan environment, somewhere, with like-minded, awesome individuals.

I miss you. ♥

When it rains, it pours  
My birthday was a good one. [info]enchanted_jae gifted me a fic and people wished me a happy birthday and someone gifted me two months of paid time and well I don't know if this was a birthday gift or what, but someone sent me two containers of cat litter from my wish list. All in all it was alright. Thanks to everyone ♥

And I've been pulling over nights all this week. Plus. It was supposed to be a few nights, a fill in, but the client has been adding in shifts as she goes along, healing from a fall, and my company keeps giving me first dibs on the hours. Which I mean I shouldn't be working third shifts so much on top of my regular hours, but it's getting me money to pick up some winter work shirts and needed pants and shoes and some house stuff and I know I'll have enough to put in some money for the winter gas bill and avoid going to energy assistance which I don't want to do because you know the god damn paperwork and shit. And this year trying to get in has been awful. So yeah if I can avoid, I will. I hit 40 hours last night so these last two nights -- Thursday and Friday -- will be all over time. Very helpful.

Hanging out with a friend this weekend. Getting drunk and watching sad things and crying and healing together in our own way. I'm excited.

Nothing has happened on the romance front. I'm getting a wee bit more sad each week. Woe and alas. May it change around.

The theater gave the green light to do Rocky Horror next year with the same director and though I've not been formally asked, I'm working it as stage manager again \o/

Sibling... I've given them a notice. Two months to get themselves together or go by the end of January. If they do get things together, we're renegotiating living together when the lease renews in May. So far sibling has been ok, but they're also helping at the theater, putting together a set, but that involves a regular schedule imposed by someone else who gives sibling a ride. Once the show ends, I'm afraid sibling will lose any gains here, but I'm hopeful it'll stick.

I picked up some birthday books -- there's a book store near me that's linked to the cafe I work at so my discount works there. I got a few books for myself which is exciting. A Nora Roberts and the newest Amanda Lovelace. Very nice.

I've not been writing fanfic, but I have been writing poetry. I haven't written poetry in about ten years. Very, very happy.

How's everyone else?
