True to my word, here are some of the possible plot ideas that I've been drafting up in the massive Google Doc for this game. I apologize if there's some discrepancies. As I said previously this is all in a rough draft form and is mostly being used to get the ideas out and about.

New job is good so far. I still don't have access to as much as I need. It's been a slow, long fight with our IS department to get them to make my phone work and my computer to work and access what they should. In the meantime, I do what I can and no one yells at me. Seriously. This group of people is so nice. I'm still the new kid so I don't automatically click with every one just yet, but I'm not having any conflicts with anyone either. I'm totally down with that. And the two people I work with the most I've known foe years so we already have a decently established working relationship.

I've started working out some potential plot threads on the game I mentioned previously. I'll post those here too eventually. Hopefully I'll be able to be on AIM again soon so people can hit me up there and talk the talk yo.

I really do want to get Powers in the Verse off the ground because I think it could be a lot of fun. I'm still pondering what the best format for it will be. I live both forum and journal a lot. I can see the pros and cons of both for sure. I'm going to have to hammer that our more.

I am also still working--or rather just recently started--those Christmas fics I promised a couple of people. The drastic decrease in stress is allowing me to have more time to be creative rather than feeling like I've been steamrolled so that's another bonus.

This is sort of what I had been playing with in regards to the game I mentioned previously. The original idea was for it to be forum based, but I've been bouncing that around. This is all still very up in the air but please feel free to read and comment as you like. I'm also open to suggestions and love feedback as well as brainstorming.

It's all pretty scattered at the moment so please keep that in mind.

New Ingrid album means new Ingrid photos which means I want to make more grown-up Gert icons. If only I had some place to use grown-up Gert icons. I really need to try and get my new game off the ground, but I'm afraid that I wouldn't be able to find anyone to play and that I wouldn't have enough time to run it. Although I might with new job now.

Anyone reading interested in a steampunk/cowboy (think Firefly) sort of X-Men game that takes place in space?

It's been a busy last two weeks.

Last week I was working OT on both Thursday and Friday for various meetings and projects I've been working on.

Yesterday I was also working more OT for one of the aforementioned projects.

I've barely been on the internet and when I am it's mostly to RP, which I am so glad I picked up again. So if I owe anyone emails, messages, posts, etc. this is my public apology. Most nights when I get home, I eat something, watch an episode of Fringe (I'm almost caught up!), get ready for bed, read and then go to sleep. It's a pretty boring life.

Today I'm heading out shortly to spend some time with my mom.

Once all this OT goes away, I can make time for RL friends again. The only people getting to talk to me now are my RP buddies because they don't mind if I'm crashed out on the couch and exhausted as long as AIM is open.

Got my tax returns, which means I have to deposit them and then pay Indiana before I can buy myself anything. The current wishlist:


  • stand mixer (Viking or Bosch are high on the list but I've not decided yet)
  • glasses
  • tires
  • mattress



Obviously not all those things are going to happen but between the tax refund and all my OT money it just might. Here's to hoping.

[livejournal.com profile] wanderlustlover, I saw a license plate while driving to work yesterday that remind me of you. It said, "Be Love".

I think both [livejournal.com profile] wanderlustlover and [livejournal.com profile] calliopes_pen should check outthe RP game I'm in. It's here for the OOC and here for IC. Still lots of characters open. (Obviously everyone else can feel free to check it. Those were just the two that automatically came to mind.)

I really miss RPing Gert (see icon). I might have to remedy this at the new game if I can figure out a way to work her in. *wibbles* She's been pacing my head now for ages. Do I dare? Do I dare?

It's probably going to be a yes.

I've had what I'm going to consider a busy weekend so far.

On Thursday I ran errands and got the car's tires fixed. Finally. It took two trips for them to notice what was wrong and fix it. It's only a $20ish fix, though, so it never bothers me too much. When I was there two weeks ago, I paid $10 for a tire rotation so I don't think they're ripping me off. It was just that the hole or issue or whatever wasn't big enough to find last time and this time it was. When I get new tires, I'm going there. I trust them.

I also started getting some apps together for a new RP game that [livejournal.com profile] mizzmarvel pointed me at. I think it'll be a lot of fun. I seriously miss RPing.

Friday was getting the taxes done, cleaning the oven (it was terrible and needs its own post), making the first king cake of the season and then, yep, doing two more apps for the RP game mentioned above.

Taxes are a major argh, though. My work keeps withholding money for Kentucky instead of Indiana, which ends up screwing me over because I owe Indiana enough that they penalize me for it. I basically have to file Kentucky, Indiana and Federal. Kentucky and Federal give me money back and then I have to turn around and pay a whole year to Indiana at once. It bites. I have to go yell at work about getting it fixed on Monday again. I did it last year, too. Hopefully this year it will stick because I hate pay $177 to get my taxes prepared when they're actually simply enough I can do them myself other than the whole multiple state thing.

Today I have already been to the post to mail Kentucky taxes (no online return for them, wtf) and [livejournal.com profile] mizzmarvel's Christmas/birthday box since the item I was waiting for finally arrived. Then I need to make this week;s lunches, do dishes and get RP stuff going.

Of course my monthly helper is doing its best to sap all my energy and making me hate sitting in my desk chair so grrrr.

Plans for this week:

Do not let work eat me and make me want to do nothing on my days off but curl into a self-pity ball and whinge.

Post. OMG post. I seriously never ever ever meant to do a whole relapse but the holidays and depression over the job managed to win me over. Then there was taxes and schedule changes. I just hope I can get back into the swing of things on Thursday. Even if I can only manage one thread for each girl at a time it would be better than nothing. And it wouldn't make me feel like as much of a failure.

Deposit state return check from Kentucky and send check to Indiana since my job has my W2 completely whacked out.

Go watch figure skating with Mum.

Make a doctor's appointment. Other than the need to get a referral to some sort of "I will fix your mental trauma" doctor, I have some distressing physical ailments, which include:


  • headaches
  • slow clotting
  • ear problems
  • heartburn that might be caused by ulcer or acid reflux
  • dizzy spells
  • hormonal imbalance (De's suggestion)
  • diabetes concerns (mine)
  • eye twitches



There might be more for the doctor's list, but that's all I can think of at the moment.

Cold. Bed time now.

I don't do resolutions. I don't believe in them. I'm not a big fan of change to begin with and most resolutions seem to simply be made because then people can break them since people seem to be fond of the chance to break things.

I am, however, in favor of getting my money's worth out of things and not being ripped off, which is why I spent a good amount of my morning sitting here at work prior to when I start working debating about whether or not I need to be spending the $30 to up my paid LJ time and extra user icons. (I get into the same debate with myself over my X-Box Live Gold subscription as well, but I so do love watching Netflix Instant on my big new TV that I decided the $30 year card from Wal-Mart was a steal and totally worth it. Also I might play something online with someone someday. Or, if not, then at least it lets me spend more money downloading songs for Rock Band and Rock Band: Beatles. I am that sort of gamer.)

Eventually I did cave and put in my new debit card information into Livejournal so it can automatically bill me on the first of February (I do wish there was a way to stop so many of my bills from coming at the same time but alas I end up doing what I can to spread them out between my two paychecks). I made myself a caveat, though. I have to use the LJ more. I have to somehow manage to drive up some more interest in actively posting, adding icons, changing the style, etc. I have a year. If I haven't mustered more interest in the internet world in a year then I will drop something, likely the extra user pics.

I mean, at this point I have the LJ, the GJ, which I have a permanent account for because it was, like, $40 or something stupidly low and I couldn't say no, and the DW account. I barely post to anything (including the RP game that I'm supposed to be posting to because I begged and begged to see it come back and then promptly got sucked right back into my giant, swirling depression that pretty much keeps me from doing a lot of things I used to enjoy) so it's doesn't make much sense to keep tossing the money away. Anyway this got a lot longer than I had anticipated because once I stop writing, as always, I seem to not be able to stop. It's just making myself start that's so hard.

This is me once again stating my intention to be better.

I've been away for a bit again. Things are somewhat stressful. Stressful enough that I taxed my body out and have been suffering with a pretty nasty cold, though Patrick blames himself because I went over there to watch him play video games and help him with some things while he was still sick. I don't argue with him. He can believe that if he wishes, though I'm more inclined to think that he was over his infectious period, and I got it when I went shopping earlier that day.

I bought a computer on Thanksgiving. It's not here yet. I worked so I bought it online along with seasons 1 through 4 of Weeds. I worked half the day Black Friday and bought some Bath and Body Works stuff for cheap. Christmas shopping is almost done.

I now have an Archive of Our Own account but nothing loaded yet because I just got the invite today. Woot! I'll have to work on getting that full and then apologize for the immaturity of the fic considering I started writing those when I was 13.

I have a forum RPG again, though it's barely on it's little legs, and I've been slow.

Yesterday while home sick, I managed to put Windows 7 Pro 64 on my formerly Windows Vista Ult 32 using the Custom Install on the upgrade disc. It works wonderfully.

I need to take a shower and head over to Mom's. I think the Titanic exhibit is out of the question given my never ending cold, but we can hang out and watch Gilmore Girls or something.

Oh! That reminds me. I very recently discovered Doctor Who and am now in the middle of the third season of the latest run. I love Tennant as the Doctor, though I was very fond of Rose, and I'm getting tired of Martha.

Must dash now. The cold finally let me sleep a whole night through, and I slept in. It was lovely, but it means that now I have to hurry.

My pet peeve of the day is people who believe you're only a good person if you happen to:


  • go to church
  • belong to the Republican party
  • be pro-life



Since I am none of the above, then I must be one of the most awful people to walk the face of the earth. I could add some more clauses to the above statement, but I'd rather not since I imagine this might already tick some people off. Let's clarify. I think you can be a good person if you fit into any or all of the above, but I don't like intolerance. It's intolerant to think that someone has to be just like you and believe in the exact same things that you do to qualify as a good person. This is the problem that I have with a lot of so-called "Christians". I have met too many whose definitions of good person and bad person only seem to encompass whether someone goes to church or not. There is more than one way to worship. There is more than one way to believe.

In totally unrelated news, I'm starting to feel like I might want to RP again, but after how my probable depression caused me to pretty much drop off the face of the earth for months at a time I'm not sure anyone would have me back.

I am not, not, not considering apping Rusty Collins and Lance Alvers over at AMX just because I would get to use Ethan Embry and Chris Marquette as PBs.

That's a lie. I'm totally considering it.

I'm off to my father's for a bit today. Haven't seen him yet for Christmas.

I'm off New Year's Day and working my way back into AMX so I guess I'll start posting then, at which point we'll be over at IJ. Need to figure that thing out and make it not ugly before then. Hmmmm...

Back later.

Seasonal depression? Quite possibly.

All I know for sure is that I have zero desire to be online. I have zero creativity. I cannot think up words or characters to save my life.

And I feel like a failure.

I just want quite and to be alone. I just want to curl up warm and safe somewhere.

I don't even have the will to really go make this known to people online (games online) that I have commitments to. I just can't right now. There's nothing in me. There's nothing to say.

Assuming this lifts, I may attempt to come back. I don't know how it will take.

Happy Halloween!

I've been sort of quiet lately, which has less with me not having anything to write about and more with me filling up my time with all sorts of other things.

I've actually been being social. With friends from work. We have game nights and drinking nights. We laugh and talk and I get somewhat plastered and hug everybody because I've also yearned for touch but am usually too withdrawn to ask for it or reach out unless somewhere smashes right through my control.

And I've been maniacally RPing over at my GJ game.

Not to mention watching loads and loads of Ghost Hunters because it's the awesome.

And friends are trying to get me to join a D&D game, though that makes me slightly nervous because I'm not sure how good I'd be at tabletop.

And now I need to get ready for work, but I wanted to pass on the news so people didn't think I was dead.
