I'm like stuck at home! Okay, not really. I could go out if I wanted to, but umm, I get as far as the door. The cold scares me. :(

So anyway, I was going to wait until I finished all of my fanart and make one big post, but I'm impatient. Plus, posting as I finish each one makes me feel more productive.

Yes, I'm actually getting stuff done today. Have spent the afternoon alternating between working on fanart and a couple of snippets for the forum. I did two new layouts for two sites that I'm working on. Now I'm working on some wallpapers so that I can finally update Wicked.

This one is for wherethewind__. It's one of two. I'm doing the link thing because it turned out kind of big. Like, don't click if you don't like slash or Spangel, mmkay? And if you do like Spangel and haven't read her story, go read it!

To those of you who celebrate it: May you stuff yourself plenty with lots of fattening yet tasty goodies and have a safe and happy holiday in the presence of those you heart. :)

What I am thankful for this year:

My family. We might bicker and not talk to each other 50% of the time but I love them to pieces.

My friends. I *heart* you guys! Those that I know offline and have been around throughout the years. Those that I've met online at the various Buffy forums -- you guys are the ones that make coming online worthwhile.

My health, of course.

My career. I may bitch about my lack of time, but I love what I do. There's no other place that I'd rather work, and I have money now.. so that has to be good, right?

There's a lot more but I want to go eat...

I will give a special shout out to my cybernetic partner in crime, crazybunny, who was sweet enough to send me a thanksgiving e-mail even though she's all the way in Australia and doesn't celebrate the holiday: Your friendship is definitely one of the things that I'm really grateful for this year. From the moment we met over at the SA Forums, where you commented on wanting JM to go to the down under, and I conveniently read that as wanting JM to go down under. That day, you laughed and proved to be as sick as me and I found a new good friend. You're the bettest gal pal a girl could want! You're there when I'm angry and listen to my insane and bitter ranting. You're there when I'm in silly mode and listen to my silly ramblings. You're always there to support whatever project I'm on, be it my latest fanart piece or attempt #123 to write a fanfic. Smart, funny, silly and caring. I can talk to you about anything from Spuffy to Spangel, hair products to novels. The Sims! I can be 'me' around you. :) I *heart* you tons, sweetie!

Barely but I am... I was freaking tired today, yo. I worked late 'cause since it's a short week the boss is trying to accomplish as much as possible. As soon as I walked through the door to my room tonight, I was ready to pass out.

I don't usually get this bad til Thursday, so yes, I'm blaming my tiredness on the short week. One more day! ::squeals:: I work from noon to 5 tomorrow and then I'm all set for the nice long holiday break.

What will I do during this holiday break?

1- Sleep
2- Eat a lot of goodies on Thanksgiving
3- Finish a few of my many fanart pieces
4- Work on adding some of those pieces to my site, and attempt to make my predesigned layouts available
5- Read a new book
6- Catch up on fanfiction updates
7- Go back to being a brunette.
8- Watch old scary movies! That's right. I want to have a scary movie marathon Friday night. Have started a very short list of movies: Killer Klowns from Outer Space, The Gate, Ghoulies! I didn't know there were sequels. Why was I not told about the little toilet demons going to college? ::sighs:: Anyway, definitely need more movies.. those were just the ones I could think of at the moment. And I heart vickyvicktor! I couldn't remember Ghoulies. Well, I remembered the movie.. I just couldn't remember the name. I was going around asking people about the little carnival demons that ate people and no one knew what I was talking about, but he did. Now if I could only find that movie about those gnome type demons...

“Hey guys, this is Val. I just wanted to test out my little phone feature and give a brief shout out to my Spuffelus gals. My lovely crazybunny. What's up girl? I heart you and Jennie Mari and Magz.

Kay, back to discussing gay hair stylists and watching Corky Romano.


Oh! And it was just brought to my attention that my little cousin's boyfriend's birthday was yesterday...so Happy Birthday Nate!

Buh bye!”

Absolutely nothing. Nada. Not one productive thing. I loved every minute of it too. On Saturday, thanks to Annie, I opened up my old Sims game. We both are easily amused and spent the night laughing at the things we made the Simmy dolls do. My Simmy!Spike doesn't want to be gay. I tried making my own Spangel love fest on the game but Spike is more interested in watching TV and following Simmy!Buffy around. Simmy!Angel pretty much lives for going over to people's houses, eating their food, and dancing like a dork infront of their stereos. Simmy!Dawn got abducted by aliens. Simmy!Tara is in love with Drusilla, it's unrequited love though. Simmy!Dru likes to play with the neighborhood strays. Simmy!Giles is addicted to showering.

On Sunday, I stayed away from the comp. Watched the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy marathon, went to the store to pick up some erasers and carbon pencils, and started working on a couple of drawings.

Oh, we can phone in posts now?! Sweet. I might try that later today, I would do it now but I'm having my early lunch. Doubt people want to hear me munch on onion rings and slurp my Diet Coke.

::pets her LJ:: I haven't meant to neglect you. Work struck again. ...cut for pointless stuff about me.Collapse )

I'm way behind on my fic reading and LJ friends page. If you've written a story update recently and I haven't commented on it, I just haven't read it. :( I'm going to try to catch up on the stories this week, and I will submit reviews like a good little fic reader!

I'm glad that some people enjoyed the last mini tutorial that I posted. :) I'll try to put another one up this week for texturizing your photos. The tutorials that I may post are simply for Adobe PhotoShop v.7+. I don't really break them down into simple steps, like I wont explain how to create layers, etc. A couple of people did contact me last time via e-mail and AIM to get further instructions. If I post something and you want clarification, feel free to contact me either way. Unless I'm super busy with work, I don't mind helping out. :)

Edited to add: Now I remember why I stopped trying to update. LJ's wicked slowness and 'Cannot Find Server' error messages. Ooh. Fun!

...how I love thee.

Damn frakker went down last night. I didn't think much of it though 'cause it was late and I was about to head off to bed anyway. When I got up this morning and it still wouldn't let me connect, I screamed. Really loud. Then I spent all day at work pouting and cussing over the thought of having to come home and having to call my DSL provider. Thankfully, I didn't have to do anything because my connection was up again when I got home. ::hugs her modem::

Not that having my 'net connection mattered today. Didn't do anything online tonight. Didn't even chat with my friends. I spent most of the evening in bed, read a bit, worked on my Darkchylde drawing. Then, when I finally made it to the comp, I worked on my Spangel story. Up to 14 1/2 pages and I'm still all inspired and stuff. I think this is the most that I've ever written when it comes to Buffy FanFiction. Might actually finish Part 1 of this story this weekend. If I do it'll be up at the spuffelus forum.

I still haven't been able to take that Trick or Treat meme. Someone broke it! Blames crazybunny and her giving people socks! S'okay. I'll just sit home on Halloween and hog the candy bowl.

I slept a little over 10 hours today. Got up all refreshed and stuff, though now my body is all screwed up due to the time change. It's only 6:30 but it feels so much later.. like the day is just dragging by. Not that I mind by all means, no rush to go back to work here.

I'm all giddy because I was slapped with the creative stick today. Really! A muse just popped out of nowhere. I was writing a little Spuffelus snippet for the forum and now I'm 10 1/2 pages into a Spangel fic. I'm so proud. ::sniffles and wipes away a tear:: Hey, this is a big deal for me. I do fanart. I don't write fiction, EVER. The fact that I've written 10 pages in one afternoon and still have ideas for more writing is making me all bouncy. I might actually finish a story. Surprising that my first fic would be Spangel. I've tried getting into fanfiction by writing Spuffy stuff and always end up with nothing.

I did take a break to give my LJ a makeover. It's taking me some getting used to, but I likes. Tried to match the colors to my site.

Now that I've filled myself with caffeine and sugar (Coke and brownie) I'll return to the Spangel lurve fest. Adios.
