This week was interesting.

I gave myself food poisoning. I'm not sure of the exact culprit. I woke up in the middle of the night between Saturday and Sunday with a terrible headache, a horrible stomach ache and the shakes. I curled up into the fetal position and eventually got some sleep. The diarrhea hit around 8:30 AM, along with all the body soreness from my rigorous workout the previous day. I stayed in bed till about 3:00 in the afternoon, dosing off and then waking up whenever I needed to shift position (I wasn't moving in my sleep like I usually do because of the workout soreness) and occasionally getting up to pick at stomach friendly food or take more fun trips to the toilet.

The diarrhea cleared up early yesterday afternoon. I even managed to get out of the house and get some fresh air yesterday evening. My stomach is still feeling iffy, though, even today. At least there was no nausea/vomiting.

In other news, I've been planning vids for VVC.

This year is going to be the year of crack for me, I think. I'm going to try to make a few of my million and one movie vid ideas that I haven't gotten around to making.

Avatar (LKBV crack)
Sweeney Todd (twistedly funny crack)
Wall-E (cute crack)
Shawshank Redemption (not-sure-I-can-pull-this-off crack)
Perfume (only-three-people-saw-this-movie-so-why-bother crack)
Ravenous (more only-three-people-saw-this-movie-so-why-bother crack)
Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy (experimental/artsy crack)
Lord of the Rings trilogy (this-fandom-is-dead crack)
Twilight trilogy(I-should-probably-wait-for-the-third-movie-to-come-out crack)

Of course, I wouldn't want to give everything a way. I have a few more ideas up my sleeve, which I'm keeping secret for the time being.

I made raw vegan fudge on Thursday. 3/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil, 3/4 cup raw honey, 1 cup raw cacao powder, 2 tbsp cayenne pepper. I made it using a janky double boiler I put together with household appliances (raw honey and virgin coconut oil are both too thick/solid to mix at room temperature). Next time I'll get a thermometer so I can regulate the temperature better (you don't want to heat it past 130° F, which is the temperature inside a beehive).

I used fancy Australian active UMF16+ manuka honey. The flavor is kind of ... intense. Personally I love how the fudge turned out, but I think for some people it might be an acquired taste. If I were making it for other people, I'd use a tamer tasting honey and leave out the cayenne pepper, and maybe put in some vanilla extract.

For my next batch I'm going to try different additives, like maca powder or turmeric. I might also try stirring in some chopped nuts or dried fruit.

I was image searching on google for pictures of belly buttons when I traumatized myself (yeah, I know—that's what I get for googing navels).

And, because I'm such a good friend, I'm spreading the trauma around.

you probably don't want to see what's beneath this cut, but if you're like me, you won't be able to resist looking )

I was going to post about the bread pudding I made for breakfast today. Something tells me this is the wrong journal entry for a food recipe.

So I had to have my left nipple stud taken out Wednesday. It was migrating. I distinctly remember the right stud hurting more than the left going in, so I suspect the reason the left rejected and not the right is that the left piercing wasn't quite deep enough in the first place. In any case, it's on its way to closing back up now, and in a couple months I should be able to get it re-pierced.

And now that I have posted this I am of course picturing you all wincing and clutching your bosoms in empathy. Well, mostly just clutching your bosoms—in my imagination I'm not really paying much attention to your faces.

A girl must find her amusements where she can.

So I've caught up on Merlin series 2.

It's come to my attention that Merlin fandom is terrible at naming things. I'm not just talking about fic, though most of the fanfiction in the fandom is given depressingly unoriginal titles. I'm talking about the fanon nicknames every other fandom I've been in has come up with to mock it's beloved characters. In Smallville we had LionEL and Lana-Fu. In Avatar: The Last Airbender we had Crazula and Penislord Ozai. In Torchwood we had Zombie!Owen. In American Idol RPS we have The Gay Alien from Planet Fierce. In SPN we have the Metallicar. In SPNRPS we named Jared's cock.

That is to say, if you Merlin fen weren't lying down on the job, Uther Pendragon would have assumed his rightful name of King Trollfucker the instant he ... what was that he did again?

Oh right—had sex with a troll.

And that is all I have to say about that.

Jogging is so much easier on a treadmill. I felt so in shape running for 20 minutes without stopping on my dad's treadmill over break, and now that I'm on a jogging path I'm back to feeling like a complete novice who can't go five minutes without panting like I'm dying.

Yes, you are correct in assuming this post has a point.

I'm in the student lounge of the admin building at my school using their wireless because I haven't gotten around to buying internet for my studio apartment. The security guard has a crush on me. He keeps smiling this "I want to hold your hand" smile at me (no, that's not a euphemism for something dirtier, it's actually that precious) (too bad I'm not attracted to him at all).

I'm, taking a moldmaking class this semester. I'm a sculpture student. We'll learn how to make molds and hardcopies of, well, anything we want, really, but mostly our sculpture projects, to later be cast in plaster or bronze or resin or what have you.

I have a specific art project planned for the class already. The Many Bitchfaces of Samuel Winchester. Little face sculptures about two inches long, cast in durable hydrocal plaster. I'd package them in sets of four and send them to slash conventions. You could use them as paperweights! Glue on a magnet and stick them to your fridge! Mount and frame them! Leave them on top of that dresser where you keep all your other vaguely horrifying and yet hilarious fannish collectibles!

In other news, no real progress made with the hot Scottish checkout guy.

Oh wait. I haven't talked about this one with the flist, have I?

Right. So I've had a crush on this checkout guy at Whole Foods for ages and then at the beginning of the summer we went out on two awesome dates and then, like, nothing. Which is to say, either I'm out of town or he's working or I don't know what, but nothing. And I don't think he lost interest because he still looks happy to see me whenever I drop in to the store where he works (and I'm generally good at reading people, so I'm pretty sure he's not faking being happy to see me). But he has not called and it's totally his turn, like, twice over.

I'm just bitter I haven't had the chance to suck his dick, really, is the thing. We slept together that one time, but it was just sleeping because 1) I didn't want to rush into anything with a guy I actually like and 2) I'm pretty sure he was too drunk to fuck anyway. I mean. He woke up with a hangover. And he's Scottish. So clearly he must have drunk his entire body weight in cheap beer.

He was all clinging to me in his sleep. I had to pry his arm off me in the middle of the night so I could get up to pee. It was so sweet. And now I'm bitter. I think about how long it's been since I've sucked dick and I, like, get depressed, and waste a whole day masturbating to really filthy fanfic porn.

My life is SO HARD.

But, enough with the TMI.


I haven't been getting much vidding done. I've been getting some writing done. And some songwriting, even! Not that the songwriting is particularly fannish.

I splurged and bought myself a $75 dollar bottle of 16 yr old Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whiskey. I won't be opening it till my birthday (Oct. 4). Until then, I'm just going to stare at the bottle and smile dreamily to myself.

I'm going to visit my parents this weekend.

I'm going to a Supernatural party for the season premiere @ [ profile] mistressace's next Friday.

I have this whole political meta journal post planned where I talk about how I'm voting for Barack Obama because he's a sparkly unicorn. No, seriously. That is literally what the post is about.


Hey! I have some new people reading my journal! Hi new people! Come forward and introduce yourselves if you like.
