I've been enjoying the photo meme, so here's my contribution

The rules: Take a picture of yourself right now. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture. Post that picture with NO editing (except for re-sizing). Include these instructions with your picture.

Here be unedited Lima )

Happy May Day all! It's raining and chilly here, so not so much with the "ooh, spring weather" but much with the drearies. Oh well, can't have it all, I suppose. ::g:: Not really sure how it got to be May as life has seemed so accelerated lately.

The meme/contest (sort of). I came back from Malice with a bunch of the teaser samplers. They contain the first 3 chapters of my upcoming book, Blood Bargain, plus the first 3 of Carole Nelson Douglas' new one, Brimstone Kiss. In the spirit of book pimps everywhere, I thought I'd do a contest. I couldn't really think of anything clever, so instead, I'm going to participate in the question meme that is going around and will send samplers to those of you that submit questions that amuse me. ::g::

Here you go:

If you would be so kind, ask me the seven questions below. Just copy and paste them into a comment, replace the blanks with anything you want--personal, silly, surreal (e.g. 3. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), or deep--and I'll answer honestly as I can! Then post this in your own LJ and see what kind of things people want to ask you!

1. What do you think of _____________ ?
2. When did you last ____________?
3. __________ or ___________ and why?
4. What did you ______________?
5. What's your favorite ______________?
6. How would you ______________?
7. Who would you most like to ________ ?

After a pretty tense night, I've decided to cancel my participation in the fangrrl squee weekend at [ profile] starrcat's. At this point, I just want to sleep. It's been a tough, busy week, capped off by yesterday's incredibly stressful insanity. I'm praying we don't have to work this weekend. At any rate, I will be *so* ready to see you all at MJ next weekend!

Woke up very very early this a.m. and filled the first hour of the morning with Supernatural.

My thoughts (spoilery) )

In conclusion (and ganked from [ profile] suricattus):

Your Brain is Purple

Of all the brain types, yours is the most idealistic.
You tend to think wild, amazing thoughts. Your dreams and fantasies are intense.
Your thoughts are creative, inventive, and without boundaries.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking of fictional people and places - or a very different life for yourself.

My japanese name is 中村 Nakamura (center of the village) 恵美 Emi (blessed with beauty)*.

Take your real japanese name generator! today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Name Generator Generator.

Off work early so I can pack/organize for my writing retreat. Yippee!!! Four days away from work. That, in itself, is a minor miracle.

It's still freaking cold around here, and way too many roads with treacherous patches of snice** to nab the unwary, but no matter. I'm home and will be here for the duration of the evening.

Now to catch up on, well, stuff.

* So I'm part of Hiro's family, and oddly enough, I have a co-worker named Emi.

Because I must follow [ profile] reginagiraffe's fine it was too funny, not to:

My Christmas Song )

In other news:
TGI--oh wait, it's only Wednesday. Damn.

Oh well, the week will be done soon and three-day weekend!! (yes, I know it's Christmas, but I don't much celebrate as exchange gifts, much of which I've already done).

I have little to say about SGA's newest ep: the Game, other than "squee!!!". If you want some really well-thought out meta, check out [ profile] rageprufrock's take. (Warning - quite spoilery!)

Made a quick run to Whole Foods at lunch for Veggie Booty and a few items. Plan to go nowhere this weekend: just relax, think, write, recharge.

I've gotten a couple of lovely holiday cards from some of you. Many thanks!! (And I'm beginning to think penguins are definitely "in" this year - our company holiday cards have them, as did several I received in the mail).

Hope everyone is enjoying/surviving/whatever the holidays!

The results are in.....drumroll......

No leukemia, no lymphoma, no obscure bone marrow disease - just weird as shit blood counts. My doc isn't worried, just perplexed. Next: come back in 3 months for more bloodwork, just to monitor. If nothing's changed, then in 6 months, then a year. After which, he's going to cut me loose.

That's a load off!

Snurched from [ profile] viggofest, because I was amused.

Look out for the


In other news...SGA!! Full of plot holes, yes! Snarkilicious humor - of the finest kind!

Just caught up with this week's Heroes , but have yet to watch Veronica Mars or BSG.

I suck at fangrrl this week.

The 'rents, [ profile] birki_lib and BIL arrive this evening. Plans are for a nice dinner somewhere - maybe at their hotel, then relaxing, as they'll have been on planes most of the day.

Turkey day= Air & Space Museum, and dinner at Clyde's.

The rest of the weekend isn't quite so plotted out.
chickwriter: (Birthday-Pros)
