I'm gonna kick this off by showing off my kittens:

darknessdivine 8th-Dec-2012 02:44 am (UTC)
omg those little white feetsies
maynardsong 8th-Dec-2012 02:44 am (UTC)
One of the first!

I'm going to India in less than ten days. Who else has been? Who's specifically been to Kerala? And who has been to Istanbul airport?
psychesky 8th-Dec-2012 02:50 am (UTC)
Yay for long trips!!!!!

There are two airports in Istanbul, which are you going through? I've been in Ataturk, and I remember it being pretty easy to navigate.

What are you reading?

I'm in the middle of What Jane Austen Ate & Charles Dickens Knew by Daniel Pool.

I'm rereading The Hobbit; I haven't read it since I was eleven or twelve. I also borrowed some comics from one of my flatmates (the first book of The Sandman, plus one of the Firefly spinoff comics). And I'm still working my way through Reaper Man.

(Though I really should just be reading for school, but I don't have the strength.)
redstar826 8th-Dec-2012 02:51 am (UTC)
omg I'm early!

edit, to make this comment less pointless, have a corgi in a hoodie :)

My 23 year old daughter, who had two seizures back in July, had another couple the other day, brought on by the flu. A couple months ago, she went to a clinic in town and the doctor there told her she should wean herself off of the Keppra until it was gone, and to call him if she had more seizures. The doctor at the emergency room was pissed that the clinic doctor took her off her meds without an EEG, and she got a prescription for a couple refills so we can get her on Medicare (Medicaid? I can never remember which one).

So now it's almost certain she's got epilepsy, so we have to go from there. It's good that we have a probably diagnosis, but it sucks she has to deal with it. If anyone knows anything about epilepsy, I'd be grateful for information. I've been searching the web, and went to epilepsy.com, but it's always good to have more info.

Anyway, that's been my week. Well, except for being able to tell the people next door that their three kids had lots of wrapped gifts over here thanks to the holiday wishes community on here. That was an awesome experience. They were so happy, because they were worried about their kids having a bummer Christmas this year like last year. And I'm happy I got to facilitate it. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy and Christmas spirit-y!
redqueenofevil 8th-Dec-2012 02:57 am (UTC)
Wow. Sorry about your daughter's epilepsy. My cousin has it. If you want me to relay questions to her, I can do that.


What a bummer about your daughter's clinic doc. Seems like a malpractice suit is in order.

So I'm taking a trip to Japan, and I want to learn Japanese so I don't stick out completely like a tourist. Which software is best to start with?
blackjedii 8th-Dec-2012 02:56 am (UTC)
idk about software but I picked up a LOT of phrases just from watching subbed Anime. Nothing that would really make me sound smart but I can do some very very basic conversation topics.
veracity 8th-Dec-2012 02:55 am (UTC)
I'm so happy! Next week are finals. I need to study like a thing for my French Oral, but other that that. (Any good online guides on that sort of thing?)

I'm so happy that it's almost break. I get to read a mix of books that are boring and stuff I like. So happy over that.
clevermanka 8th-Dec-2012 04:45 am (UTC)
Good luck with finals!
keeperofthekeys 8th-Dec-2012 02:57 am (UTC)
I am spending my Friday evening trying to finish the first draft of my scientific paper I'm suppose to get out to this STI group I'm a part of for review & discussion on Tuesday.

It's shit. Whatever skill I developed for writing in undergrad, it's evaporated after 5 years.
blackjedii 8th-Dec-2012 02:57 am (UTC)
Still playing Wii U.

Am incredibly amused that Iwata had to make a direct apology for the holdup because Nintendo is way behind on Animal Crossing orders because they had no idea the game would sell so well.

Also both laughing and crying that for some people the biggest issue is having to wait for Animal Crossing. Because we live in a weird world.
executivehpfan 8th-Dec-2012 02:58 am (UTC)
Happy Friday, you guys.

So, I love my job. I love the people I work with, it's chill and relaxed and simple.

But it's FILLED TO THE BRIM with the most disgusting, sexist shit I've ever seen in my life. I hate that I sell this shit to people, but lord knows I need the job.

It's Spencer's, btw.
violetrose 8th-Dec-2012 03:02 am (UTC)
What is it that you're selling?
violetrose 8th-Dec-2012 02:59 am (UTC)
I've had a cold/cough/chest infection or something for about a week now. I think I'll go to the doctor on Monday because it's just not getting better, and I'll be fucked if I have to stay indoors for another week. I have meals to go to and a birthday to have and food shopping to do.
serendipity_15 8th-Dec-2012 03:00 am (UTC)
I had my Peace Corps interview this Wednesday, I think it went well. It's PAPER SEASON AND FINALS SEASON and my brain is burnt out.

I just finished watching The Invisible War and _p, I want to punch things and/or get completely drunk now.
clevermanka 8th-Dec-2012 04:46 am (UTC)
Have a drink. Definitely.
fenris_lorsrai MY ARTS ARE TAKING AN EVEN WEIRDER TURN THAN USUAL8th-Dec-2012 03:00 am (UTC)
I'm a linking to work in progress shots so you don't get Surprise Butchered Pig.

about 25% done
about 75% done

and then the rest of December is probably taken up coloring things for Bastian which involves weresharks, tentacles, and exploding boats.


And I bought extra high strength sculpting material so I can make a hoop snake I'm going to use a hula hoop as a base, so potentially, yes, you can hula hoop with your mythological monster at the end!

The sales guy was really funny as I was asking about the different epoxies compared to their previous product and his description was "pardon my language, its bitching strong stuff!" SO ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT EPOXY.

I spent my day repairing and playing our very first computer (Commodore Amiga 500) and the nostalgia has been incredible. Monkey Island music blasting through through house all day, oh yes.

My bf would be jealous to hear you have one (he misses his commodore and talks fondly about it sometimes).

I'd like to get my cousin's son the Harry Potter books. Any places to get them cheap? I guess paperback would be cheaper than the hardback books, but I really like the hardback ones better. :-/ Also, is there anything really special about the box set? Just looking around a bit it seems like I could get them cheaper by buying them all separately, but if the box set is really cool I'll keep looking for that.
bluebombardier 8th-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
There's a box set of the hardcover books that comes in a school trunk, but that one's pretty pricey. Barnes & Noble has it here for $121.46.

Cheapest bet is to scout out all the used book stores in your area for clean hardcover and/or paperback copies.
bluebombardier 8th-Dec-2012 03:07 am (UTC)
I taught myself how to crochet this week! So far I've managed a pomegranate, a mangosteen, a cup of coffee, and a half dozen macarons, because the first macaron wound up looking like more of a whoopie pie than a proper macaron, so I tried something different on the next one, but it still wasn't quite right, so I kept making macarons until I managed one that passed muster. Given the difficulty of making proper macarons for eating, I suppose I really shouldn't be surprised at how difficult it is to crochet proper macarons for playing.

I was only supposed to make one tiny plaything a day as a sort of advent calendar challenge to myself, but instead I just hooked to my heart's content and stuffed everything with catnip.

I don't even have a cat.
encircleme 8th-Dec-2012 08:34 am (UTC)
Legit lol at your last sentence.

My throat just started hurting :( wtf? Hope I'm not coming down with something. Tomorrow I have to work, then right after work I'm going to a hockey game of some friends and few hours later a Thunderbird game.

I submitted some photos for another competition. http://s1173.beta.photobucket.com/user/Erin_Clements/story/7011

I got a job interview for a cashier position for one of the first Targets in Canada!

You have no idea how freaking excited I am that someone is interested in me employment wise!

Congrats!
redstar826 8th-Dec-2012 03:08 am (UTC)
My internship wrapped up yesterday (I was working 2 days a week in a 7th grade classroom). My kids all signed this gigantic card for me and wrote so many cute messages and I had all these kids asking me if I was going to miss them. And one girl made me a card that said " Bye Miss [my name! you are really cool!"

OMG SO MANY FEELS
violetrose 8th-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
Awww! I love when kids write messages in cards, they're so funny and adorable. My niece is great for this. For her grandparents anniversary this last year, she wrote;

Dear nanny and granddad, you are the best couple ever and please don't break up. Happy anniversary! :D

Bless her.

So on my shift at work is quitting except for like 2 people. And then I'm planning to quit in June.


lol oop.
peace_piper 8th-Dec-2012 09:55 am (UTC)
Why are you quitting?
countrygirl_914 8th-Dec-2012 03:10 am (UTC)
I'm glad I have health insurance, but god damn why does it have to be so confusing? I hate these "Explanation of Benefits", I never understand them. Arrggghhhh.
girly123 8th-Dec-2012 03:12 am (UTC)
I hate those things so much. I feel like their only point is to illustrate how fucked you'd be if you didn't have insurance.

I've been doing code for like four and a half hours straight and want to punch a hole through my monitor. SO SICK OF YOU, JQUERY

Ignoring that shit, though: DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU CAN MAKE LIPSTICK OUT OF CRAYONS, _P
BECAUSE YOU CAN

I'm still feeling Chekov withdrawals. I need his curly head.

But I am so ready for Star Trek IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG.

I just booked my train ticket home for the holidays. Two weeks from today!!

The next two weeks are gonna suck. I have three finals, an enormous paper, a presentation and a few quizzes/homeworks. I never thought I'd be pleased about this, but one of my professors is moving his final a week early so I don't at least have three finals (Ethics, Biostats, and Epidemiology) in thirty hours, because that would be atrocious.

Also, I'm so nervous because I'm not doing anywhere as well as I'd like in my classes and I'm so worried I won't pass- especially my core classes, because I REALLY don't want to take Biostats and Epidemiology again!!!)

IDK, I keep going back and forth between thinking it won't be bad and thinking it'll be a nightmare. Just need to survive two more weeks.
serendipity_15 8th-Dec-2012 03:33 am (UTC)
Good luck! I'm so worried about epi too because I need to maintain a B average in all my classes to stay in the program and epi is the only one I'm seriously nervous about. I keep having anxiety induced nightmares about the final.
