red_eft: Simon Banks from The Sentinel at his desk. (on the job)
Though not, ironically, the job I interviewed for today. Still, this job will probably be more stable and long term, so- yays! Here's hoping I don't fuck it up.
red_eft: Dana Scully looking at a computer (november means nano!)
I actually went out and interacted with people today! It was not horrible! I went to a NaNoWriMo WriteIn (I am so far behind, agh) and it was pretty okay! I met some people who seemed neat. Although the conversation turned to fandom, and there was a lot of 'lol slash', which was a little awkward. It sort of reminded me of the time when I had dinner with Ursula Vernon (and like, other people, she didn't invite me specifically) and ended up spending a lot of time defending Snape mpreg. I don't know, part of me feels like I should have been more vehement.
Still, even though the girl at my table was down on Harry/Dumbledore, she gave me some of her pizza, so that was pretty cool.

I also have a job interview tomorrow, which I am quietly freaking about about. Has anyone, *ever* figured out a good answer to the question "What do you consider to be your worst quality?" I've been asked it like six times and I think I've muffed it up every time. Also, I'm going to be gone from the 19th to the 22nd, and it feels weird to say "I would love to work for you, can I take some time off?" (I will be in Massachusetts, but I don't know if I'll be able to see people.) *flails*
red_eft: Blair Sandburg from The Sentinel studies while curled up on his bed. (perpetual student)
I'm trying to get back into drawing. Again. I think I'm going to try to post some sketches at least twice a week, maybe do a sketch every day, at least for a little while, as a way to try to get back in practice and get past my own perfectionism. The plan is then to pick one sketch a month and turn into a completed piece, although who knows if that'll happen.
Today the subject is Toph! Because she is awesome. All are SFW.

red_eft: My two ginger tabbies. One is licking the other's ear. (u has a flavor)
My paid account is expiring in a few days, and so before I lose the ability to make polls, I would like to present to you a scenario!

Let us say that you are cooking some sort of thing which involves butter 1. Let us further say that you are cooking only for yourself- no one is going to eat this food but you. You turn your back on the butter for one damn minute, and when you turn around, your cat2 has begun to lick it!

This poll is anonymous.

What do you do?

Eh, it's just cat spit. Just use the butter.
8 (40.0%)

I wouldn't use the butter raw (like on toast) but if it was going to be cooked, I'd just use it.
5 (25.0%)

Scrape off the bit that the cat licked, and then use the butter.
14 (70.0%)

Trash the whole stick- it could have licked the whole thing while you weren't looking! YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.
0 (0.0%)

Just give up, order out, and let the cat eat the rest of the butter. (not recommended!)
0 (0.0%)

I have some other terribly creative reaction that I may expand upon in comments.

1. If you do not eat butter, feel free to imagine the butter-like item of your choice.
2. If you do not have a cat, you can imagine one, or replace it with the animal of your choice. Although I am given to understand that a dog licking your butter would make the rest of the poll moot, as there would probably not be much left.

Well, we're officially being kicked out of the house! My landlord has apparently failed to pay his mortgage, despite repeatedly telling us that we don't need to worry about the foreclosure notices, he totally has it taken care of you guys. So now the house is owned by the bank, and they want it back! Which means getting the four of us out. It's not all bad- apparently we might qualify for relocation assistance? And we have some time. But- aauugh, I have to get all the roommates together, and we have to write a letter(?) and we have to agree on- something(?) and I have no idea what to do and yet I am In Charge of this situation by virtue of the fact that I was the only one at home when the bank rep came by to check for occupancy. WHEEEEEEEEEEE. um. yes. brb, exploding of stress.
red_eft: Parker from Leverage hanging upside-down, gleeful. (ten pounds of crazy)
I am still mostly not here-ish. Am a little meh at the moment.
On the bright side, I had a job interview yesterday, and have gotten my brother into Leverage. Hardison is his favorite, which I feel shows good taste.

- if the job application that you're looking at specifies they want a 'pretty young woman', it is probably best to avoid it.

- playing Silent Hill at midnight because you can't sleep is possibly not the best idea.

ETA: OH GOD was this a bad idea; it is now 4 AM and I *swear* there is something making horrible shuffling noises outside my window ahhhh. It's an old game, I said. the graphics aren't that great, I said. How scary could it be, I said. CLEARLY I HAVE MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS HERE.

Am going to try to restrict my journaling access for a little while because I really need to get back on track productivity-wise, so I may not be around for the rest of this week. Or I might! It's a mystery. I'll still be checking e-mail if you need me.

So I'm doing some journal-y housekeeping, and recreating my filters on Dreamwidth. Right now, I have three filters: one for my original comic, one for my Ladies' Big Bang stuff, and one for my happy fun-time depression issues.
If you were on these filters on LJ, then you should be on them here, but if not, push the button, Frank! You can also request to be removed at any time by changing your answer, no questions asked and no hard feelings, promise.

red_eft: Kari from Mythbusters smiling, whith headphones (we're what you'd call experts)
Is it just me, or do the Mythbusters collections have no discernible order? I'm now on collection 3, and we keep losing the build team. :/ I mean, of all things, I *probably* don't have to watch Mythbusters in any kind of sequence. But it *bothers* me. Deep in my soul. (Also I miss Grant et all when they aren't there.)
red_eft: A weighted companion cube from Portal, uplit. (will never threaten to stab you)
A little late, but technically three weeks for Dreamwidth never ends, so have some Portal icons! Because I have basically played this game nonstop for the last few days. (stupid achievements.) Feel free to modify to your heart's content, credit and comments are appreciated but not required.

Did you know you can donate one or all of your vital organs to the Aperture Science Self Esteem Fund for Girls? It's true! )
red_eft: a turret from the game Portal, with the portal gun beside it (target lost)
Hello, internets! I have returned from the wilds of Washington, where I took shameless advantage of the delightful [livejournal.com profile] shoomlah's hospitality while visiting her and attending the Northwest Folklife Festival. There was lots of delicious food, good music, and also I got to meet Claire's new snake and hog her X-box. (I have now played Portal through about four times, once on her X-box and the rest on my PC. I will never get that peppy little radio tune out of my mind.) It was good times! Alas, Claire's internet was out so I was unable to keep up with the goings on of the world. If anything exciting has happened to you since last Wednesday (or just anything you feel like telling me about), let me know! I'll try to catch up on stuff, but I may miss things.

So I counted, and I did fourteen drawings total for my sketch requests. Not too bad! I should definitely be able to do 15+ drawings by September 1st for [community profile] ladiesbigbang

Here are some things I noticed in the process. rambling artish thoughts. may not be interesting to anyone who isn't me. )

I'm going to draw kittens now. Or sleep. One of those things.
red_eft: Angel Batista hugs Maria LaGuerta (from Dexter) (Angel/Maria huggggs)
Whhhhhy are there only seven episodes? aahhhh, sogood. And so *pretty*!
Also, Mma Ramotswe totally fights crime! She is on my Ladies' Big Bang list for sure.
I should get started on that.
red_eft: Dana Scully looking at a computer (Scully researches)
Had posts on previous episodes, but I brilliantly chose *not* to restore from saved draft, so whatevs. I am now on season 4!

red_eft: Sun, Jin and Sayid from Lost on a boat. (ridiculously attractive people)
Okay, one, fuck you, ABC.com. Here is a hint: DO NOT SPOIL THE EPISODE THAT AIRED YESTERDAY on your "Watch Full Episodes" page! Fuuuuuck you.

My god, it's full of spoilers! )

In other news, I am still working on people sketches, I swear!
