Last one! I'mma incorporate the last 24 hours. And also the future. Because I DO WHAT I WANT.

THING ONE! Yesterday was Forrest's birthday, so I met him and a bunch of his friends at Hilo Burger Joint for beers and burgers for lunch. Later in the afternoon I picked up a bunch of food to-go from his favorite restaurant, Tina's Garden Gourmet Cafe (it's only open for dinner on weekends), and then later we went and had a brief Thai fusion evening picnic at Onomea Bay. And we had a successful dance class and then we went to his place and ate leftover mango sticky rice and did our homework, and he opened his presents from me and Mom and he liked them. :)

THING TWO! The visiting Cornell Ph.D that my lab is hosting had his talk yesterday afternoon. I got there a bit late because my order at Tina's took longer to fill than I was expecting, but the bit I did see was super fascinating, and there was a loooooong period of question-asking afterwards, and when I asked my question he perked up and was like, "Aha, yes, I was hoping someone would ask that!!" and I practically wiggled in academic joy. And he's super intelligent and knowledgeable and enthusiastic and I don't think he's ever been to Hawai‘i, and I'm taking him on a couple of field trips tomorrow and Friday, so that will be fun.

THING THREE! This weekend I'm taking a bit of a break and only going up to Hakalau for the day on Friday. Saturday afternoon Forrest and I are driving over to Waikoloa for an America concert, and we're staying in a fancy hotel, and spending Sunday doing relaxing beach stuff on the Kona side of the island. I'm so excited to kick back a little, I've been working so hard. @_@

And that is all the positivity you're getting out of me. You know me, I'm so negative. :P

So I've known this was happening for almost two months now, but I didn't want to say anything about it until it actually happened in case I, idk, jinxed things somehow. But as of a couple of hours ago today... I OWN A CAR.

I OWN THIS CAR.



Brand new Honda Fit, basic, and I regret to say an automatic, but who even cares, I OWN THIS CAR, MY NAME IS ON ALL OF THE PAPERWORK AND EVERYTHING.

This is my first car, guys, I've been driving my parents' cars and my friends' cars but now I have my own car, zie is mine, no one else's, oh my god, I HAVE A CAR.

...Wish I could say I bought this car with my own hard-earned money, but while I do work very hard saving the world and I've probably earned a lot from a moral/spiritual standpoint, a $20/day volunteer stipend is not the kind of money you buy a car with. My Dad bought me this car for my (now belated) birthday, because he is wonderful and he loves me, and also his mom bought him his first car so he wanted to pay it forward.

NOW I HAVE TO THINK OF A NAME FOR HIR, IT MUST BE NERDY AND AWESOME AND PERFECT, OH GOD WHAT WILL I DO, THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT YOU GUYS OKAY?? [livejournal.com profile] look_alive suggested "Dummy", hardy har har (her car's name is Jarvis).

AVATAR MARATHON BIRTHDAY PARTY IS BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY. [livejournal.com profile] regonym, [livejournal.com profile] shichahn, [livejournal.com profile] platoapproved, and Eric, you guys are the best!!

Oh god. I have consumed soooo much beer. XDDD
zolac_no_miko: (woe)
Walp, it's a good thing I'd actually made solid plans to absolutely nothing but lie around and stare at the television all weekend, because I have come down with The Plague and that's really all I feel like doing. :P

[livejournal.com profile] regonym came up with a really good idea, I think. If you're really really bored and think that joining me and my eternal bro Eric for part of an Avatar: The Last Airbender marathon sounds like fun, poke at me via LJ, text, email, smoke signals, or however it is you usually contact me, and I'll sign onto AIM, iChat, Gchat, or Skype, and you can join us long distance! Marathon starts tonight and goes until ??? o'clock Sunday, so assuming you manage to avoid our sleep breaks you should have plenty of opportunity. COME JOIN US YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO IT'LL BE FUN. :DD

INSTA-REC!

Okay y'all, set some time aside and read [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory's "But World Enough, and Time". It's a Steve/Kono AU inspired by The Time Traveler's Wife, and it's gorgeous. I don't care what you do or don't ship (I mean, strictly speaking I wouldn't say I ship Steve/Kono whatsoever), just READ IT. I don't care if you've never read anything in Hawaii Five-0 fandom in your life, or never seen an episode of the show, either; this story stands up on its own. IT'S JUST. IT'S BEAUTIFUL, OKAY, JUST GO READ IT.

...This has been a public service announcement.

And just so y'all know, you're not off the hook. I still need suggestions for my birthday Avatar marathon drinking game list. So far I've got:
-Sokka uses sarcasm
-Sokka food gag
-Aang attempts to get it with Katara
-Aang goes into Avatar state
-Zuko throws a tantrum
-Iroh food gag
-Iroh does something unspeakably badass
-Sokka does something unspeakably badass
-Cabbage Guy
-Foaming-at-the-Mouth Guy
-Another Avatar
-Singing
-Soonghi horn
-Blind jokes
-Iroh says 'tea'
-White lotus
-Specialty bending (lightning, metal, plant, blood)
-Aang dons ridiculous disguise
-Katara acquires boyfriend
-Sokka acquires girlfriend
-Someone says 'yip yip!' (THANK YOU [livejournal.com profile] mithen!)
-Sokka talks to his boomerang
-It is Heavily Implied that Momo is Avatar Roku

...SNAP TO IT.
zolac_no_miko: (Aang)
So, how excited are we about Legend of Korra? Please estimate to the closest power of 'fucking very'. Just watched the free pre-release on iTunes today. THE ART. SO VERY GUH. And Pro Bending? Yeah. Coolest sport I will never be able to play since Quidditch. I do expect, however, to be continually distracted by Evil!Spike Spiegel, omg.

So anyway, HAPPY ANGELA'S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND Y'ALL~! And also that Easter thing. Both of these things are actually kind of getting sidelined for me this weekend, in favor of Marcus and Baerbl's 10th anniversary Hilo swing workshop. I plan to spend my birthday in Balboa classes. And then packing for the field.

But next weekend, when I actually have time for this birthday nonsense... Avatar: The Last Airbender marathon, aww yiss~. It will be a MASSIVE PARTY with me and my friend Eric... and maybe even other people, if we can find anyone else interested in Avatar. This island is definitely suffering a nerd vacuum, it's very sad. ...You're all invited, btw. IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO BUY AN AIRPLANE TICKET AND COME JOIN US.

Or you can help me construct my Avatar 'Take A Shot When' Drinking Game. So far I have:
-Sokka uses sarcasm
-Sokka food gag
-Aang attempts to get it with Katara
-Aang goes into Avatar state
-Zuko throws a tantrum
-Iroh food gag
-Iroh does something unspeakably badass
-Sokka does something unspeakably badass
-Cabbage Guy
-Foaming-at-the-Mouth Guy
-Another Avatar
-Singing
-Soonghi horn
-Blind jokes
-Iroh says 'tea'
-White lotus
-Specialty bending (lightning, metal, plant, blood)
-Aang dons ridiculous disguise
-Katara acquires boyfriend
-Sokka acquires girlfriend

What else needs to be on the list?! HELP ME OUT HERE GUYS.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] boko!!!

*boogies*

Ayep, it's that time again... everyone's favorite holiday, National Angela Day! WHOO!! How will you celebrate? Champagne? Bonfires? Break-dance competition?

So I've hit the quarter-century mark, holy shit. I can do anything now! I can... rent a car! On top of voting, buying booze, all of that, I am basically set with everything I need. So... this is it, guys. I'm not getting any older. I am staying 25 forever.

Also, Happy Birthday to one of the BAMFest BAMFs who ever did BAMF: ALFRED MOTHERFUCKING PENNYWORTH! I found out a few weeks ago that he was born on April 8. Somehow I did not know this before. Somehow I did not realize that I shared my date of birth with the only person on the motherfucking planet who might actually be cooler than Batman. How have I lived? Man, from now on, me and Alfie are partying together EVERY YEAR, okay?

To celebrate the fact that Alfred is a BAMF having a birthday, I bring you these panels from Streets of Gotham #17:

Why yes, that is a young Alfred Pennyworth protecting Thomas Wayne, Martha Kane, and Leslie Thompkins by beating the everliving crap out of some mafia goons. Be still my heart~! )

In other news, Dar and I are watching the musical episode of Grey's Anatomy. ...SO AWKWARD. MAKE IT STOP. DDDD:

Notes: This is for [livejournal.com profile] realpestilence. Happy Birthday, bb! I offered her a birthday drabble, and she requested "Bruce/Dick and unnecessary jealousy". This is what I wrote. Predictably, it's a bit longer than an actual drabble.

Posted to [livejournal.com profile] robin_fans, [livejournal.com profile] we_love_dick, and [livejournal.com profile] batfic.

This is so different from everything else I've been writing for this fandom. It contains, like, fluffy slash, and maybe some actual happiness. Weird. )

In lieu of singing "Happy Birthday" to [livejournal.com profile] aquidis, [livejournal.com profile] look_alive just death-metal screamed the ingredients off a box of Trix while I accompanied her with beat boxing.

I love my life.

...I'm in Portland again. Chris is here, which is AWESOME. We're going to see The Princess and The Frog with Lauren and James and Angel... and some other dude. Gigantic essay detailing the events of the last week to follow at a later time.

Peace and Love, y'all!

-Massive Anglo-Saxon gold discovery in Staffordshire. Celebrate your Anglo-Saxon heritage: use some four-letter words.

-G20 protestors in Pittsburgh get tear-gased. The important bit in this article is the Anon in the second photo down the page. Also the Daily Show has a presence, very important. And a sound cannon is a fucking awesome high-tech anti-riot weapon. Sorry, protestors.

-Last night I cooked dinner for once. Oven-baked chicken breaded in panko, hazelnuts, and cajun spice; quinoa; and green beans. It was delicious. Sometimes I am awesome.

-Today the call volume was very low, which would've been... nice? I guess? Except that there was an unusually high percentage of callers I wanted to throttle. ...This job has only made me more of an elitist. So much of the world is dumb. And they all CALL ME ON THE PHONE.

-The massive levels of dumb were made up for to a great extent by my participation in the birthday preparations for our manager, Francis. I joined a couple of my work buddies, including one of my supervisors, in spending an hour saran-wrapping his entire cubicle.

-I'm still recovering from the cold that laid me flat all weekend. My nose is a slow-dripping leaky faucet, producing unlikely amounts of snot. The snot coming out of my right nostril is clear and colorless. The snot coming out of my left nostril is yellow and opaque. THIS IS DISGUSTING. ...I felt I should share this with you.

-Tomorrow we go to Walla Walla (again)! 'Tis the season for birthdays; this weekend we celebrate Becca's by crashing on her floor and preventing her from studying.

Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs! Hope you had a good one! And I do hope you enjoy your present. ^_^ Again, sorry this is a little late, bla bla timezone difference bla bla weekend of no internets bla bla excuses bla bla.

I took a couple more prompts from my wonderful little collection, so thank you all again, friends list. More Metanoia, so of course this has already been posted to [livejournal.com profile] riverside_hq.

Drabbles for Neve )
