I dyed my hair today in preparation for my cousin's wedding on Saturday. It's a fairly dark brown (much darker than my natural dirty-blonde/light brown business, that's for sure) and I really like it! Next up is shoe-shopping, which is something I should have done ages ago since I'm in the wedding party, buuuuut...uh...yeah. Me and procrastination go together like peanut butter and jelly. :V This should be an adventure, given how much I hate shoe shopping and how specific a shoe I need to look for. Wish me luck!

And since this meme is currently all over my flist, I have to take a stab at it too:

The first five people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

......Wow masseffect. Wow. I can't...wow

I was just talking to middlemarching yesterday about how, no matter what gripes I might have about the Dragon Age fandom, they are, by comparison, rather minimal and easily outweighed by the overwhelming amount of wank that goes on in the Mass Effect fandom, and that LJ comm has done a glorious job of illustrating my point perfectly.

I love the DA fandom on LJ, but it's getting to the point where I can't even go on LJ to take part in the ME fandom because it's just that terrible lately. :\

So, stayed up stupid-late to get registered for Pottermore, went to sleep when I had to be up by 8am...the power goes out while I'm sleeping so my alarm clock is off...and I still wake up at 7:30! I feel victorious lol

I finally got my email confirmation of my registration so hopefully I'll be amongst the million who get in early. If not, that's okay. I still have my user name, so I'm happy. Though people have been fretting that the user names might somehow land you in a certain house despite the sorting quiz that you'll be filling out? That seems a bit weird to me, so I doubt it. But still...PumpkinWing would slap me right on into Hufflepuff if we were going by name alone, right? XD Or Ravenclaw. But more likely Hufflepuff. I'd be okay with either, tbh. I'd be okay with any house by Slytherin and that's only because I'm the least ambitious and cunning person I know.

...And all this time spent on the internet has made me late to leave for work. Whoops. *flies*

Oh, what's this Livejournal? You feel like working finally? Mighty kind of you! But I can't even be mad because...


I. Adored. This. DLC. I can safely say that it's been my favourite dlc that Bioware's put forth, and that includes Lair of the Shadow Broker for ME2. It was just the perfect length (that's what she of time. It took me nearly 3 hours to finish it, which...is fantastic), with amazing character interaction (which is what probably tips it over and knocks Shadow Broker out of top place: everyone has stuff to say in it) and it doesn't bork with Grey Warden canon, which was how the trailer and press releases were making it look. So happy.

I won't go into spoiler talk here, but maybe in the comments. All I'm going to say so far is...

putting it under a cut anyways, even if there won't be spoilers, juuuust in caseCollapse )

Last night I went to bed around 3:30-4 am thanks to music being blared loudly enough through my house to be heard clearly on every floor. I didn't actually fall asleep until probably somewhere between 5:30-5:45 am and I have no idea why. I woke up at 9:45 am and now my very first thought was "...I hate everything" even though nothing had even happened yet.
This is not a good sign for how the rest of my day is going to go. XD

I wrote this as a response to the "Bethany/Nathaniel, first day as a Warden" prompt over on the DA prompt fest, but naturally it got away from me and became this monster drabble so I'm going to have to post it here so it doesn't take up 3 comments-worth of space over there.

Note to self: learn to stop babbling when you're drabbling.

written thing under hereCollapse )

In line for the midnight screening of Harry Potter! We got here at 9 and it was already pretty crazy (given that the lines officially opened at 7:30, there's little wonder!). And it is so, so warm in here with all these people. But it's exciting! Lots of people are dressed up (I opted to just paint my nails the Hogwarts House colours instead) and the energy is really great.
Since the only tickets we could get were for the 3D screening, we also got these special 3D glasses in a Harry Potter drawstring bag. The glasses are modeled after Harry's glasses. I'm keeping these forever. XD

Just checked the time. 2 hours and 20 minutes to go. :\

Stealing this tumblr meme because the results amused me and I needed a break from cleaning the kitchen. And I don't have a personal tumblr, just RP tumblrs derp.

The second to last GIF in your folder is now your best friend.

I have two main gif folders on my computer and it's really pointless because I don't sort them at all so stuff that should be in one is in the other and vice versa. But anyways, I went to check both annnd:

I can see this ending badly.

Well, I sure haven't updated in a while! I was out of town, and even though I could still get online and bopped around LJ all the time I just didn't have the energy or the...whatever stuff (legit term, you know it) to update my LJ. I don't even know XD But I was out of town, visiting my mom for a week and that was super relaxing! She lives out in the middle of no where, just outside of St. Thomas, Ontario, so there was no crazy city nonsense going on at all hours of the day. I actually went to sleep at normal hours and woke up in...the morning. WHAT A CONCEPT XD

Really, I was just glad to be away from work. Naturally, they tried to get me to take someone's shift literally before I was even back in town, but I told them no because...um...yeah no, I'm not doing that XD On the way home the Greyhound bus we were on lost its AC which made the trip so so so hot. I've never been so thankful for a cool breeze before in my life.

Hm...what else...Oh! I cut my hair all off! It used to be pretty long (past my collarbone) and now it's to my jaw in the front and level with my earlobes in the back. It's so much easier to take care of now, and it gets my hair off my back. I do miss having a ponytail but...it will grow back soon. So, for now, I love it! :)

Also, tehprincessj, thank you so much for that little virtual gift! That was so surprising and so sweet! Made my day! :) ♥
