kshandra: Keith Olbermann, pointing at the camera; caption: "I see you, you dirty fangirl" (Keith - Dirty Fangirl)
So today was Promo Day over at the Keith Olbermann Media Empire™ - we got a few teaser shots throughout the afternoon, and then one of the Good Ones this evening. My comment, both on the FOK forum and on Twitter, was that if he'd actually chosen a purple tie for that shot, the amount of carnage amongst the fangirls would have been truly devastating.

I had to go and open my mouth.

Why, yes, yes I did.... )

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go make some new wallpaper.

I have nothing else to say here that is either relevant or true.

Decided that I needed boot covers to go with my Fabulous Playa Coat™ last month. Went shopping with [livejournal.com profile] hederaivy, from whom I was going to commission them, and couldn't find purple fur for any amount of love or money. Found a vendor online who not only offered them in purple, but makes them in extra large sizes to go around my *&^%$#@! calves. "I need these by 10/10," says I, as I'm having them shipped to my office (my neighborhood is NOT one where you want to leave a package on the doorstep). "No problem," says the vendor, "it usually takes us 1-2 weeks to ship."

This was on 9/19.

I emailed the vendor on Wednesday to say "Um, dude, WTF?" She writes back, saying she'll check the order status and promising that they'll be here by today.

I get another email this morning with a 0100 timestamp. "if you give me your home address I can have them forwarded there instead and they will for sure arrive there by Saturday delivery."

I gave her that address at 11; she has yet to reply. If I don't come home from Faire tomorrow to see [livejournal.com profile] gridlore waiting for me with a box o' fuzzy, I will be...displeased.

A meme...

Comment on this post.
I'll choose six of your icons and kind of o.O at them.
You'll explain what they mean, or why they exist, or why you use them.
If you want to, post your answers and this explanation in your journal so others might play along.

Shay picked these: )

After finding the Purple Store link again while doing my Year in Review, I wandered back out to the site...and discovered they now have a wishlist feature. I'll be adding this to my wishlist post, as well, but in the meantime:

After seeing it on [livejournal.com profile] blackfyr's journal, I have acquired a new journal style. Now that my subtitle is present in the header, I'm trying to coordinate my link text, and having large amounts of fun doing so. (Not entirely satisfied with the "leave a comment" text - suggestions are welcome.)

The good, the bad, and the ugly....


The Good:


  • Having TS greet me with a lovely sweet kiss as she got off the plane on Friday, and generally getting to be very subtly out with her all weekend.
  • Getting to spend almost 48 uninterrupted hours with dafydd where we weren't spending half a day on the road in one direction or the other.
  • Bargains. Found a brand new purse - two, actually - at Ross Saturday afternoon: A purple (yay purple!) one for everyday, and a smaller gray one with a detachable strap long enough that I'll be able to wear it as a hip pouch at the convention this weekend. And then we stopped by Office Max that evening (TS wanted a mechanical pencil for the conference Sunday), and I found a copy of 7th Guest reformatted for Win98 for ten bucks. (We'd tried running my old copy on the new machines, but the soundcard drivers weren't there, and you lost most of the dialogue...which really kills the game, imo.)
  • Feesh. Red Lobster for dinner Friday night, Truya Sushi on Saturday.... I don't often get to have seafood of any variety, since Doug won't eat it and I tend not to think about ordering it if I'm not at a seafood restaurant; this was a very pleasant indulgence.
  • Various other pleasant indulgences I won't detail. Suffice it to say a good time was had by all. ;-)
  • Seeing Shrek and laughing our fool heads off.
  • Calling Doug Saturday afternoon and having him ask, "Did you read my journal entry today?" He was seriously considering giving it up for a while; I'm really glad he didn't.
  • Having dafydd show off his first paycheck as a permanent employee of SGI, and watching him giggle about it only being one week's pay.

The Bad:

  • Not communicating clearly with Doug, leaving him under the impression that dafydd had to be at AMR at 0700, not 1900, and having him rather disappointed when I wasn't home by midafternoon.
  • Not getting to kiss dafydd goodbye. He was out running errands when I called Doug and he asked me to come home; dafydd and I had planned to grab dinner when he got back, and I had to call him and cancel.

The Ugly:
  • Further signs of how ineffective my current medication is.... After my miscommunication with Doug, I wound up trying to both overcompensate and over-apologize. This is a hallmark of PMS for me, and I was extremely disappointed to see it happen.
  • Signs of increasing short-term memory loss. Perhaps the most disturbing example of this: Saturday night, I look up at the clock and say to myself "Okay, time for my babyrepellant." I get up from my seat next to dafydd's computer (we'd installed T7G and were working on Bishop's Challenge), walked the two steps to where my purse was sitting...and proceded to grab my pillbox and take a fourth (my daily dosage is three, and I'd had the last one several hours earlier) Wellbutrin.
    And didn't realize what I'd done for another half hour.
    I can only find information on Wellbutrin SR, rather than the immediate-release formula I'm taking, and it only lists memory problems as occurring in less than 1% of the test group - but I can't help but think this is related to the medication somehow.

Overall, the good far outweighed the bad, and is at least managing to neutralize the ugly. I really did have a lovely time....
