I'm still here. I know I haven't been posting hardly at all lately, but I just really haven't had much to say. And in a lot of ways, I feel like maybe I've...outgrown this journal? I don't know if "outgrown" is really the right word. I'm not ready to say "no more LJ ever again". And I'm not deleting anything. But I doubt I'll be posting much. I still read, as much as I'm able. This new job has been kicking my ass. In a good way. And my attention has just drifted elsewhere. *shrug*

And there's a lot of history here, over 7 years of my life, the triumphs and the tragedies and everything are all here. And sometimes I feel like all that history is weighing me down. The last year of my life has been like one long slow press of a reset button. It's not been easy to finally let it up, but I think I'm finally at peace with everything that's happened in the last few years.

I'm still going to be around, and I'll still comment here and there. And I may even post once in a blue moon. I make no promises, though. I think this is a good stopping point, though. When it's calm and quiet, and I'm in a peaceful frame of mind. My account is paid up through February, but I won't be renewing it. It was a good run, though. :)

And according to my stats, this makes entry #2,599. That's a lot of yammering at the internet since September of 2003. I'm surprised I didn't run out of steam long before now.

Not much left to say except that's all folks. I'll be around. :)

Because my phone remembers that night far better than I do. Lawlz. Anyway, my costume, in case you missed it, was fucking epic. It was so dark that neither mine nor Don's cameras could quite capture its nocturnal majesty. Seriously, I could go out and fight crime in that getup.

I may have to take some pictures of the coat on its own, because I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm proud of it. I put in a red satin liner after ripping out everything that wasn't necessary (and possibly some things that were. And I really didn't finish it out as well as I'd wanted, due to time constraints. But once I got the liner in, I cut the bottom hem into points, like a bat cape. My belt, which also was barely visible, had silver skulls, with draping silver chains. My shirt had a distressed red bat that I painted, which took FOR FUCKING EVER because I had to paint like six layers to get it just right. The mask was the most difficult, but the most rewarding. This was what it looked like when it arrived (I bought an original 1992 Batman mask off Amazon).

LOTS more pictures and story under here. )

Oh yes.

And for comparison purposes, this is me from this time last year:

Obviously I've not posted anything in a couple of days because I'm still recovering from Friday night. No, actually, I've just been very lazy over the past couple of days, because I can. Friday was crazy though. I went in to work early with the intention of leaving at about 4. Nope, not happening. I had files to pack up and get out of the office. So I did that. And then right at 4, CJ calls and asks when I'm leaving. About the same time, the boss gives me a milk crate stuffed to the brim with wadded up paper. "Can you straighten these out and file them before you leave? That would be great." Yeah, fanfuckingtastic. Somehow, I manage to get this done.

As a funny little stunt, Mario and I switched avatars on MW today. It was for a couple of reasons. For one, because we've both got a little bit of a problem with people that won't leave us alone. For two, because it's funny. Probably more for the second reason more than anything else. Only problem is, I can't make a serious post because the goofy avatar negates any amount of seriousness I put into it! So we probably won't keep that up for long. But damned if it isn't hilarious.

I think he's intent on spoiling me rotten. He's already sent me a birthday present (I hope it shows up tomorrow!) and wants to get me something for Mother's Day and for me to give him some ideas for Christmas. What a doll. :)

I'm going to start working on a writing assignment given to me by a friend that may be able to help me make some money off my writing for once. I'll write more about that once I have some more info. Don't want to jinx anything.

Still hunting job and apartment. Not going to obsess until I get something. So for now, here's this:

Methinks the person that made the quiz was either rushed or dyslexic though. Oh well. :p

In other news....
I found quite possibly my most favoritest site EVER. Hundreds of Invader Zim wav files. I am so setting my computer up with all the Gir sounds. It's my destiny, I can't deny this.


Then [livejournal.com profile] kaylara pointed out some nifty Zim and Gir avatars. They're only 50x50, but oh so shiny pretty.

Zim & Gir avatars

I was also called the meanest woman on earth and the nicest woman on earth today. Also, I was told I was beautiful by three people. Ok, two of them were my kids, so they don't count. That just means they want something. The third one on the other hand....well, I'm just keeping that one to myself for a while, and you can all speculate your weasely black guts out. Savvy? :p
