Happy birthday [ profile] deepthink! See you for shenanigans tomorrow, but hope today has been awesome and that this year bows to your will!

Look, I made a shiny.

Warning: It's a huuuuuuuuuuginormous pdf.

In addition to being Cinco de Mayo (curse you, Tuesday + South Beach!) and the birthday of many awesome friends (birthday wishes go out to [ profile] ladylish and [ profile] theantichrist!), four years ago this day a (very inebriated) dashing young man swung me onto a dance floor, let me buy him a hot chocolate, held my hand as we walked along the ocean front, stole my heart clear away and took it home with him to NoVA. I love you, my [ profile] nalroth!

So let's get with the celebrating! :D
skkyechan: (Give me the top tea leaves)
Birthday wishes go out to [ profile] nalroth and [ profile] piratenolan! Seeing as it's a Friday, I expect you both to party it up. ;D
skkyechan: (*facepalm*)
Hey all! The loverly [ profile] xgreenjudasx got involved in the Browncoats: Redemption fan-film for charity, and has dragged a few of us along for the ride. [ profile] ancient_youth and I will be film extras next weekend (bar brawl, bar brawl, whee!), but it turns out they need a few more... )

... a day of working from home, and a burning desire to create a snow-something leads to silliness. )

I blame an entire snow-devoid childhood's worth of yearnings. And, damn, snow is cold!!

Hrmmm. I've let my paid-member status lapse for almost a year without noticing. It bemuses me that I'm weighing and measuring whether or not polls and more icons are worth the re-uppance. Perhaps my beloved [ profile] nalroth and I should get to work on an alternate blog.
skkyechan: (*facepalm*)
At least, that's what I keep telling myself, and I keep getting away with it, so..

The time has come to bid farewell to my beloved California plates, and to register Delilah officially to the land of cold... *sniffle!* But I'll be damned if I move her to VA without taking advantage of the super-low priced specialty license plates! The only downside is... I can't make a decision. n__n;; Soooo... what do you guys think?

Long list of random license plates.. )

I have a request for fellow victims of reading-by-flashlight-while-hiding-under-the-covers-so-your-parents-didn't-realize-you-were-up-waaaaaaaay-past-your-bedtime -- anyone have an optometrist that they really like? I'm hoping to find something more than a LensCrafters-type place, since I'm actually a little concerned at my degenerating night-sight and hope to document it / go to someone who knows what the heck they're doing.

In other news, tons of things have been happening, but I hardly have the time (other than work) in front of a computer to relay it all. Meep!

The awesome [ profile] ancient_youth just informed me that my beloved Flogging Molly will be playing at Shamrock Fest this year. I've already bought my tickets-- who else wants to come? :D

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. I may bake you something and mail it to you. I might stitch something. I might draw something. I might bash a few atoms at something.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

Edit: Alright, apparently I didn't get enough of it at Christmas time... There's still one more slot for people who want to follow the catch, but I'll open up another five slots 'free of charge'. Love you guys!

Huzzah! My brother-in-law just created what appears to be a photo-blog here. This is of particular interest to those of you who like my main LJ-icon.

Speaking of pretty shiny photos and things, I hope to post some pictures of our freshly-painted walls this weekend.
skkyechan: (Give me the top tea leaves)
So, for those of you who'd like to join [ profile] nalroth and I in our craziness, here's a general game plan for the weekend.

The tentative plan... )

As a note, we'd love to see anybody at (nearly) any point this weekend, for whatever amount of time you feel like being here. Sadly, however, since our place is rather small and will be crowded with displaced furniture, boxes, cats, teddy bear collections, etc, we'll probably only have just enough room for working bodies--this is probably not a great time for observers and the generally curious to come by. [ profile] nalroth and I will arrange some other, here-to-fore unspecified event so that everyone who wants to see our place, molest our kitties, jam on our plastic instrument-shaped controllers, or just hang out, can.
skkyechan: (*facepalm*)
Guess what D&D character I am? )

In other news, painting-related post to follow!
skkyechan: (*facepalm*)
[ profile] nalroth and I have clearly lost it, as we have decided to paint our condo during this conveniently scheduled three- (or four-)day weekend.

Following the theory "many hands make light work", and also realizing this would be an excellent excuse to splurge on pizza and fine beer (and/or cider), if anyone finds themselves suddenly afflicted with the burning desire to purge our house of "renter's beige" (and/or engage [ profile] nalroth and I in paint-roller fights), we would love any and all personages to our home! Drop a comment here or let [ profile] nalroth and I know if and when you'd like to come. We'll be doing most of the prep-work and priming on Saturday and Sunday, with most of the actual painting occurring Monday. This is a general, "Hey, this is what's up", not an "OMG halp!!"-- any sudden fluctuation in our love for you is not in any way, shape, or form related to your presence this weekend.

.. Did I mention the pizza and beer? Or cider? Or scotch? :)
skkyechan: (Answer the ocean)
I am so lucky and thankful for the friends and family I get to enjoy year-round-- may everyone have a peaceful, loving, joyful Christmas (even if you don't celebrate it!), and know that I can't wait to give you all hugs whenever (and however) I get to see you next.

Merry Christmas all!

And to prove it I present a meme ganked from [ profile] superlib: my 24 'haracter Strengths' ranked from strong to weak.

Your Top Character Strength: Capacity to love and be loved
You value close relations with others, in particular those in which sharing and caring are reciprocated. The people to whom you feel most close are the same people who feel most close to you.

Your Second Character Strength: Gratitude
You are aware of the good things that happen to you, and you never take them for granted. Your friends and family members know that you are a grateful person because you always take the time to express your thanks.

Your Third Character Strength: Humor and playfulness
You like to laugh and tease. Bringing smiles to other people is important to you. You try to see the light side of all situations.

Your Fourth Character Strength: Love of learning
You love learning new things, whether in a class or on your own. You have always loved school, reading, and museums-anywhere and everywhere there is an opportunity to learn.

Your Fifth Character Strength: Appreciation of beauty and excellence
You notice and appreciate beauty, excellence, and/or skilled performance in all domains of life, from nature to art to mathematics to science to everyday experience.

My 19 other strengths... )

Ugh. I've had this craptastic bug since last Wednesday and, after a brief chat with the family doctor, it sounds like I have another 3-7 days to go. I just hope that this doesn't interfere with Kooza, and eventual plans to re-do my birthday. I'm especially glad that the only person near me when I was contagious was [ profile] nalroth.
