Miss Mousie has a ton of $10 vouchers for her store and she's emailing them out to everyone. She asked if I didn't mind signal-boosting, so here I am, and this is her Society6 store, where she's selling a bunch of textured, nature, and vulture-themed stuff.

If you'd like a coupon and/or a discount, let me know, I'll PM you her email. Just send her an email entitled "Coupon please!" or something to that effect and she'll get it right to you.

I may get one of those throw pillows I've been eying. Also a print.

A little privacy please, guys?

Went up to use the bathroom, glanced out the window, and huge-assed black vulture fledgling was peering back at me.

Vulture family was apparently feeling adventurous and chose to sun themselves on the roof outside the bathroom window today. They appear to be as uncomfortable with this situation as I was and ultimately retreated, dropping down to the deck railing to resume their vulturely activities there.

I hate the mornings I wake up exhausted.

We did move my columnar apple trees from MiL's house and plant them in a line in the front yard last night (well 3 out of 4 anyway; we were getting peered at by lightning, so there's still one in its half barrel sitting on the protected side of the house where we abandoned it). Honestly, planting a few tiny trees is not a good reason for me to be completely wiped out after a full night's sleep.

I'm more inclined to blame 2-3 straight days of re-evaluating and re-plotting a story, and general emotional Nope. And yeah, I am actually still deeply upset by some of my long-time deeply loved artists up and ending their lives one by one. Music's important to me--their music's important to me, but y'all that already know me, know me. I know you're not surprised. I know a lot of you feel the same, too.

Doom!Twin01 is having a gaming convo with W somewhere else in the house, the dining room, probably. Just to add to the fun, the kid talked to a recruiter on the phone yesterday and now we have to take her over to Tinton Falls today to talk to the Marines.

Emailed the job I really want earlier this week, 'cause I hadn't heard anything. The nice HR guy apologized, said they hadn't made it thru all their applicants yet, and he was hoping to be able get back to everyone at the end of this week one way or another? Maybe? He hopes? So I'm antsy about that, too (They interview, hire, and train in groups, and I've been on the other side of that proceedure. If they're actually doing the 6-part interview process I experienced with everyone? Yeah, he's having some very long days right now.)

Recruiter just called to confirm. D!T01 took the oppertunity to get a hookup for her twin. So now they're both going. They're really going outta their way to try me now.

So I reached into the bedside table, and pulled a stone out of the bag. I got back DONO NTOASO - the double praise drum. I gave it a squeeze. Took a deep breath. I'm going to finish my tea and carry the fuck on, and keep trying to give a hand up (or at the very least try not to wound) anyone I meet along the way. Godsdamn I'm fuckin' tired. Could be worse, tho. I've definitely been worse.

40-anime meme: Day 09

09 -- name an anime character you absolutely hate.

Oh, this one is easy.

Relena Peacecraft.

Why? Because she hits the ground running as a selfish, self-absorbed little brat -- and at no point does this actually change -- whose best moment was mercifully fucking off from the plot for a while so things other than her screaming at Heero to kill Zechs for the "honour" of a fucking family she never knew existed, let alone that she was a part of, scant days earlier, could actually goddamn happen.

That last point is made all the more galling by the fact that Relena does indeed disappear out of fight for entire central multiple sub-arcs of Wing after that last event, during which actual *le gasp!* reasonably believable plot unfolds (the foxing of the colonies into "peace" as controlled by OZ, etc etc) ... and then. And then.

And then the aggravating little piker resurfaces, suddenly and miraculously the head of a resurrected pocket-kingdom, and is a figure revered across~ the globe~ and beyond~

We never see this restoration.

We never see a single god damn reason why Relena is immediately and unconditionally held in such esteem.

We never see one god damn iota of justification for any of this bullshit. We simply have to accept it, because ~*it's Relena Peacecraft*~.

Who then proceeds to derail what was very nearly an excellent political war story, despite its shaky start, because the entire narrative and cast of characters deforms to revolve around her. For no reason. Oh, and she's happy to let men die literally on her border, and she never seems to protect her own populace, etc etc ... but she's somehow perfect and her ideals unchallengeable.

(while I'm at it: since when were these her ideals? we never see anything of the sort come out of her mouth before this! she was too busy stalking Une to revenge-kill the woman, and wanting Zechs dead! I can only conclude Noin brainwashed her off-screen.)

Fuck. That.
