today was one of those days, you know them? when reading through my blogroll brought up an extra heavy dose of posts about assault, and sexual bullshit, and people's capacity to be wretched, and just how dark life can sometimes get. how far we, as a society, really don't appear to have gotten. and, as these kinds of days usually do, it got me doing a lot of thinking about my own past and my own history. which is, you know, a bummer. and i don't really have much left to say about any of those things. i'm tired.

so fuck it, i said. i'm not going to write that post. i'm going to write this post instead. i'm going to write a post of celebration.

this is me celebrating that finally, in my life, i have a partner who i can trust completely, even in bed. who i find totally sexy, and who thinks i'm totally sexy too. who says so. who will never do anything i don't want to do, and who will never make me feel weird for asking for what i do want. who checks in, who talks with me, who never makes me second-guess myself, and who can make me weak in the knees, and then make me laugh, and shout, and sob, and shake, and laugh again, and then we cuddle under the covers and watch nerdy-ass fucking television.

i fucking deserve this shit. and if this sounds like something you want, know that you fucking deserve this shit too. if you don't have it, you'll find it. if you do have it, celebrate too. and spread the word: we all deserve to get what we want. we are all so worth loving.

SO EXCITED

watching justice league with [personal profile] lovelokest. batman? is being a perpetual creeper. you know. as usual. so, batman is always watching.

[personal profile] themeletor things you may not have known: batman and ceiling cat are THE SAME PERSON

[personal profile] lovelokest wouldn't that be basement cat?

[personal profile] themeletor no, ceiling cat is watching you masturbate. basement cat is CHEERING YOU ON.

[personal profile] lovelokest so. basement cat is ollie?


[ETA: THIS]
MOMENTS LATER:

[personal profile] lovelokest so, how does he have wings? are they real or are they strap-on?

[personal profile] themeletor that is not a fair question. strap-ons are as real as you want them to be!

this is me making a permanent record of the fact that [personal profile] ell and i are not, in fact, mutually exclusive forces, and tonight we both managed to exist in the same apartment eating delicious thai food and watching white collar. THERE IS PHOTO EVIDENCE.

also her cats are THE GREATEST.

my day in a nutshell, copied and pasted from my twitter feed:

out of the 119 photos i took in chicago today, only 20 aren't boats. and 50 are rigging shots. god, i am a slut.
-41 minutes ago via Chromed Bird

meletor's parents theater, it's too goddamned early for this shit edition:

dad: organic! does that mean it has bullshit on it? cow shit?
me: you're bullshit.
dad: because they can't use chemical fertilizers. so they use animal shit.
me: yes dad, the cereal is covered in poop.
dad: it's like joni mitchell. give me spots on my apples. *sings* put away the ddt ... give me spots on my apples ... but leave me the birds and the bees~
me: LOLS
dad: *warbles* pleeee~eeease!

(important to know about my dad: he's the man who raised the music nerd in me. also he couldn't carry a tune in a wheelbarrow if you strapped it down.)

aaaand back to reading batgirl back-issues. STEPH ♥_♥

HEEEEEEEY INTERNET~

I AM WRITING THIS POST FROM MY NEW NETBOOK. due to her tininess, adorableness, badassery and sparkles (also the fact that the hardware/case is by msi -- mostly that, really) her name is lyn-z. THAT IS ALL.




...

ok that is not all -- today i spent most of the double shift i worked at the restaurant getting skeeved on by bret michaels' roadies. seriously, they were there before soundcheck, and then they were BACK AFTER THE SHOW. UNTIL AFTER WE CLOSED. GO TO A DIFFERENT SHITTY ASIAN RESTAURANT'S SHITTY BAR AND MAKE LEERING FACES AND UNWANTED ADVANCES AT A DIFFERENT COMPLETELY UNINTERESTED WAITRESS, ASSHOLES. ugh. so that was fun; what is my life?

also, my tattoo is itchy.

that is all.

i got a tattoo yesterday!

dana withers of blue lotus tattoo in madison is a goddess and a ninja. we were at this for four hours with almost no breaks.

photos beneath the cut, borderline worksafe (it's a sidepiece so my shirt's all rucked up).

as the flames rose to her roman nose and her walkman started to melt )

as usual, feel free to ask me any questions you'd like (about this or any other body mod i've had).

woohoo ink!

dear the internet, who wants to talk with me about the fic i am plotting that is a rewrite of a batman beyond episode but expanded to take into account things like, for example, terry's similarity to a certain once-dead robin and also other intriguing parts of comic canon that i want to make click with beyond-era dcau? PROBABLY NOBODY, but if this sounds like something you or someone you know would like to explore, please say hello. i am kind of desperate.

cut for rambling about the fic, which will get all up in the business of epsiode 3x05, 'out of the past', aka the one with the lazarus pit )*

in unrelated news, i'm getting an awesome tattoo the wednesday after next. it's either going to be blackberries or A PIRATE SHIP, i don't know yet. i'll find out when my amazing rockstar tattoo artist emails me some sketchage.

also GUESS WHAT, I DON'T WORK TOMORROW. THIS IS AMAZING. I'M GONNA DO LAUNDRY.

*btw if any of the brave few still on my flist from '05 recognize a fraction of these shenanigans from that one thing i started and never finished? this is what happens when that SITS IN MY HEAD FOR FIVE YEARS.

dear the internet,

does anyone have an icon yet of rachel maddow wearing her bacon police hat? or, alternatively, if someone has a screencap i can make the icon.

that is all.


(we now return you to your regularly scheduled mel-is-too-busy-freaking-out-to-be-on-the-internet. though also, in the interest of sanity and anticipated celebration, i am planning a tattooooooooo~)

cut for whining, melodrama )

(which reminds me! i finally gathered and turned in all my paperwork for the local culinary program of decent renown! i should get news in 2-3 weeks! i rpobably won't get in for the upcoming semester, because they have a waitlist a mile long, but. ... that may be a good thing.)



(yeah, it's probably definitely a good thing.)

dear the internet,

i was going to make this post earlier but then i got distracted by vampires. which, in other words oops i just watched the first four episodes of trueblood and am going in for a fifth (confederate!flashback!bill! yespls!). doot doo...

HEY THIS HAPPENED TODAY:
cut for arachnids and capslock )

...better get to that fifth episode, i guess. thanks to someone i have the decemberists' "yankee bayonet" stuck in my head.

the internet is AMAZING.

half an hour ago i was at a friend's house talking about how this song was a huge part of my childhood (to the point that i'm sure i'd re-traumatize my parents if i played it for them) and how i hadn't heard it since i was four or five years old, have no clue who sung it or what tape it was on ... and with the power of google and youtube, here it is!



(ps this was probably the first food that ever charmed me, back when i was teeny!tiny!mel. omfg.)

(pps this only rivals (and probably beats) "froggy goes a-swimmin'" as far as 'songs that i adored obsessively but haven't heard again since kindergarten' go. DEAR INTERNET, I LOVE YOU.)

stalking the wild snickerdoodle: a photoessay )

(secret of the snickerdoodle:

take your favorite vanilla cupcake recipe (i decided to use a modified pound cake formula that gave me a crisp cookie-like top above a moist, dense crumb) and add 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon per dozen cupcakes. top with a sprinkle of demerara (or turbinado) sugar and a light puff of cinnamon before they go in the oven, then bake as usual.

let cool completely, top with a swirl of caramel buttercream and/or a drizzle of homemade caramel sauce, and finish with a touch more demerara (or turbinado) sugar.

share; enjoy; nom.)

DEAR FANDOM.

WHY DID NOBODY TELL ME THAT *JENSEN ACKLES* WAS VOICING JASON/RED HOOD IN THE UPCOMING ANIMATED MOVIE?

I THINK SOMEBODY* DROPPED THE BALL ON THAT ONE.

PS LOOK AT THIS SHIT:


PPS I MAYBE ATE WAY TOO MUCH SUGAR TONIGHT. OTOH THE SNICKERDOODLE CUPCAKES IN MY OVEN SMELL LIKE CRACK. DELICIOUS CRACK.
