- Watching: Ghost in the Shell SAC: The Laughing Man
Oooopsie...deleted something I didn't mean to...
ephemeraTurkey Day went and gone, so that's that.
I have photos both old and new to upload, but eh, I've just not been motivated. Been more motivated to try and get some money together, tho.
Anyway, Merry Christmas if I forget to post that later.
Why Its a Good Idea to Go Back Through Your FavesI just did that while looking for a past favorite, and found a couple shall we say...questionable entries from years ago in my Furries and Fuzzies subfolder.
I had a "Furry Pride" symbol in my oldest Favorites. Not the LGBTQ one - the friggin' Nazi one. Holy shit WTF past me.
I am not nor do I support Nazi furs, or any goddamn supremacists, tho I was friends with a guy who liked SS uniforms and drew furries in them. But he ducked out on our friendship back in 2000, so I have no idea if he became or supported in any way the Nazi Furs. I have no idea what I was thinking favoriting that picture! Best I can guess is I thought it was a LGBTQ thing, because at the time I joined dA I was trying to get back into the fandom in a small way and didn't know about the Nazi Furs...
...but mostly I'm all 'what the holy shit hell was I THINKING?!?"
I'm sorry. And anyone who thought it meant I supported their fascist beliefs, go fuck yourself.
The other was a joke ab
MenopauseIt comes and goes. And sucks and blows.
Came on suddenly today, and I'm on the last of my kava and have no tofu that isn't expired.
And I'm afraid the extreme moodiness might blow an investment I hope to make. Or at least not blow it before I even have the money to try. Fuck.
Oh wait, I do have some tofu, in the dried miso soup cup o' soup stuff. I better get some in my gob.
Anyone wants to know what its like? Girls, you already know what a period feels like. This is like bad ones that randomly come on, sometimes with no blood, but ALL THE FEELINGS EVERY TIME.
Boys - it feels like massive diarrhea, but nothing shoots out your butt. It juuuust stayyyys there churning in your gut, shooting all the feelings out your nerves. ALL THE FEELINGS!
Tofu and its lovely pseudo-estrogen is my friend...
Its Done...and Gone to the AllsparkUpon further reflection, I couldn't afford my car even if it WAS running. The money is just better spent on things like taking Madeline to the vet, which I haven't for two years.
So, I attempted to sell Snowball the Sorta Decepticon to Cash 4 Cars, who, since it was 20 years old wanted me to donate to their chosen charity and they'd give me a $500 gift card to Restaurants.com, some hotel days, and something else which I don't recall. This sounded good, so arrangements were made for it to be picked up on Saturday.
But in filling out the title I made an error in the blank where you're supposed to list the current address of the seller, under the last of the three signature blanks. It was a small error, but I was worried enough that I hopped the bus to the closest Dept of Licensing to see if it was a bad error.
And that's where a stupid little legal thing blew my plan all to hell.
See, Washington has this rule that if you are gifted a vehicle and thus didn't pay any fees
So...My 20 year old Civic is 99% dead. I looked up the symptoms, then replaced the has-so-many-different-names-its-fucking-ridiculous injection/main power relay assembly/PGM-FI/PCM after pulling it out and finding the common old Honda problem of cracked solder. I was gonna solder it myself, but then the solder iron I bought has a bad tip...but on the good side severe nearsightedness meant I didn't need a magnifying glass to see the cracks in the solder when I held the board up to my eyeball! XD. The 1% is because the battery didn't completely drain until I tried turning it on after the replacement. Its an old battery, and I'll have to pay over $100 to buy one from a place I can walk to, or see if Walmart will deliver one of their value batteries for half the price. Or get a taxi or Uber to Walmart. The bus says ABSOLUTELY NOT to bringing it onboard, even new.
This is the third plan for trying to get my car back working. First plan was resolder the above-m
Bleah...Used one of my t-shirts and my box fan for a makeshift air purifier. Christ this smoke combined with my upper story apartment sucks.
I know its nothing like what CA usually has, but I just wanted to bitch a little because I'm starting to feel sick to my stomach.
The Search for Rally Cap RudySlight update:
It turned out that the old email I found for his breeder/former owner/former trainer is still good, and she got back to me today with the news that she's going to look into what's happened to him and get back to me on Wednesday if she finds out anything! Woot!
Sleepless North of SeattleAnd its not because of the big booms happening right now.
I've stayed up all night a couple times in the last few weeks now, searching for any mention of a Thoroughbred racehorse I like, whether he has been moved to another track or trainer, or has been sent home for a long rest or recuperation from an injury not noted in the chart of his last race, or God Forbid, disposed of at an auction like so many other low-level claimers are.
I can't explain why its THIS horse and not all of the horses in my virtual stable on Twinspires who've been MIA for months, 'cause I don't know why but I am starting to get a bit obsessed. His name is Rally Cap Rudy, and his last race was on April 2nd, 2018 at Turf Paradise in Arizona. Last summer he raced at Emerald Downs (trained by his breeder/owner, even!) but when his trainer went to Hastings after Emerald's season ended, he was immediately claimed (can't blame 'em, he's a consistent runner, and I would if I could!). That owner/t
Looking Up How to Junk My CarThe Honda I got for free from the parents is having increasing transmission trouble and the struts have started to collapse, both issues for which I have 0 money. Plus, despite it being a '99 model, it was actually built in '98 so its 20 years old this year. I do wish I had the money to fix it up, as its been important to me for the last 30+ years to have the freedom to drive for hours and busses don't cut it for that, despite if its a good system or not.
I plan to drive it until it quits, as I pretty much only drive around the city since I stopped long-distance driving after the strokes (tho now its because of the car and not the fatigue factor), and with the city's bus system I won't get stranded if/when it breaks down. But I certainly will be depressed by the lack of freedom and loss of ability to do things like haul stuff around. Yes, I could get, for instance, a new TV delivered here but there's a high risk of package theft in my building.

Lackadaisy - Card GameSome of you might remember me talking about the card game last year. My publisher only had a very small number of them in stock, but they're finally back. We made a lot more of them this time - and with new, custom dice too!
If interested, here's where to order.
Lackadaisy on Patreon
I've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy. Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.
If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!
DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
