sohotrightnow: ([bandom] I totally paused!)
Some good things from the last week:

  1. My birthday was lovely! Mom and Rita and I went to National Harbor on Friday and stayed at the MGM. We briefly went to the casino, mostly just to say we did it, but I ended up with a net gain of $60, which I used to get us breakfast the next morning. We were not actually all that impressed by the hotel itself, but the Jim Gaffigan show, which we were there for, was fantastic. The next day, we got home while flurries were slowing down, and then the snow picked up again a little later! We still didn't get much, just enough that everything looked pretty for awhile without making the roads unusable, which is my favorite kind of snow.

  2. Last Monday, after my doctor's appointment, I saw [personal profile] cruisedirector, who I haven't seen in, literally, years. [personal profile] dementordelta also joined us for lunch, and it was just a really nice day all around. &FRIENDS;

  3. I haven't had MLK Day off in the past, but we merged with another company last year, and apparently they had it as a holiday, because I got this past Monday off, too! I didn't realize that I had it off, and would additionally get to sign off a bit early on Friday, until Thursday afternoon, so it was like a lovely little surprise for me.

  4. I've been rewatching Avatar: The Last Airbender, and omgggggg that show remains so amazing. Possibly another post where I just capslock my feels about it all over again to come soon.

  5. This weekend, we got some exciting news -- my sister's pregnancy is going well, both she and the baby are very healthy, and she's having a girl! She's due in late May (the day after our mother's birthday, in fact), and one of her friends and I are emailing to start planning a baby shower. I have no idea how one does that, but we'll figure something out.

Taking off early today because it's my birthday weekend, and Mom, my sister, and I are going to National Harbor for the night, since Jim Gaffigan is playing the MGM and I got tickets. And then I'm taking Monday off, because I have a pap smear in the morning and screw going back to work after that.

But even more excitingly, I woke up at a quarter to four this morning, and I ain't even mad because I think I have a plot for this space opera/romance thing that's been floating around in my head for months now, which is SO FRIGGIN' EXCITING. I keep having to stop in the middle of outlining to clap my hands and giggle with glee. It's gonna be exactly my kind of fun trash and I'm so jazzed.

TBH the only problem I'm having is that I want the main couple -- why yes, they are in fact a thinly-disguised version of a crossover pairing I have loved for ages (but never actually posted fic about), WHY YES ONE OF THEM IS BUFFY HOW DID YOU EVER GUESS? -- to also sleep with every other character who isn't an immediate family member. Will I just go with it and have the main couple, in the course of punching everything leading a rebellion against the evil kleptocracy, sleep with everyone who crosses their path? MAYBE~~~ At the very least I suspect I know how I'll be dealing with days when I'm stuck or don't want to write the actual plotty bits.

Anyhoo. Hello, Internet! I hope you have a great weekend, if I don't talk to you again before it's over.

Hello there, people from [personal profile] st_aurafina's friending meme! Let's see, basic intro-type stuff.

I'm in my early 30s, bisexual, cis and female. I'm a Reform Jew, and converted several years back. I live in the greater Washington D.C. area, where I was born and raised. I work for a large firm doing various web site stuff (I'm not being vague about it because it's particularly sensitive but because, while I like it just fine, it's not particularly interesting and I'm very much a believer in leaving work at work).

I'm currently living in my childhood home, where I moved while my father was stationed overseas for a couple of years so he and Mom needed someone to house-sit. Once they got back, I wanted to finish paying off a credit card I'd had to put a couple of root canals on. It's been a year or so, but now I pay the Verizon bill and a share of the grocery costs, which, even with the premium cable package, still works out to much less than I'd be paying in rent without, like, eight other roommates anywhere else in the area. (Also, not gonna lie, since entering the workforce in autumn of 2008 means I don't really have much faith in my 401(k) to be there when it's actually time for me to retire, and heaven knows what the Trump administration + GOP Congress will do to the social safety net, I like being able to sock away some other savings.) We have four cats, all of whom are delightful. I'm the oldest of three children, and my siblings are also still local; my younger sister was married last year and she and my brother-in-law are now expecting their first child, which I'm very excited about. My younger brother has severe hemophilia, so you might hear me venting about health care policy and health insurance, as it's always been something of pretty personal importance to my family.

I've been in online fandom of some kind since I was...hahahaha oh man, I think I must've been 11? My introduction to fanfic was on alt.tv.x-files.creative, to give you an idea. My mother has been a Trekkie since the very first episode of TOS, and Star Trek conventions are among my earliest memories. I'm very multifannish, but things generally need to contain a few characters who aren't white dudes to hold my attention for any amount of time. I'm a sucker for space opera, and have developed a romance novel habit in the past couple of years (mostly historicals and sci-fi/fantasy; contemporary tends to leave me cold). A few years ago, my mother made me play Mass Effect, and now I have a gaming PC that I built myself??? I'm still not totally sure how that happened.

My fic is here, and I'm trying to get back into the habit of writing this year.

I like to binge-watch things on Netflix while embroidering and doing my nails, preferably with a glass of something alcoholic close at hand. Green is my favorite color, Bruce Springsteen gives me lots of feelings, and I love terrible puns and bad jokes.

(Edited to add a little more personal detail!)
sohotrightnow: ([mass effect] last best hope)
Hi, hi. It has been a quiet week or so since I last posted, but I am trying to get back into the habit of posting regularly. IDK why I have so much trouble making the same kind of stupid one-off comments that I make to twitter and occasionally Tumblr, and used to make here. Clearly what we all need is for me to get drunk while watching Netflix more often.

On that topic, I rewatched some Buffy this weekend and while I do not feel quite as strongly about it as I used to, omggggg Buffy Summers is still my forever girl. "Anne" is just. Oh man. I've also been occasionally mixing it up and drunkenly rewatching AtLA, which is also an excellent choice, it turns out.

A couple of new years things:
  • For aaaaages I have wanted to take a ballet class, but no place in less than an hour's drive offered classes for adults. But the arts center that opened in a former prison started offering them last year, so I finally took the plunge and signed up for the next one. It starts next week! I am super-excited. I don't know why I find ballet so fascinating -- most other dance leaves me pretty cold, although I took one on classical Indian dance in college and that was wonderful in much the same way that ballet gets to me, the precision of every movement. So I'm really looking forward to this.

  • I've started lifting at the gym, with a goal of deadlifting my body weight by the end of the year, which I think is the most realistic.

  • I'm aiming to write 75,000 words by the end of the year, fic and original. I have this one Star Wars fic that I started months ago, and would like to get posted by the time Episode VIII comes out, which seems like the most realistic goal given the way writing is currently going for me. I also have a fun idea for a romance novel brewing -- I have gotten really into romance novels in the past year or so? -- and would like to at least get a partial draft of that done.
Yep! Ugh I used to be so much less self-conscious about talking to you, Internet, what happened? I need to work on that. In the meantime, have a Mass Effect 3 icon featuring my Shepard, Sofia.

Mom, Doug and I got hooked on The Man in the High Castle last week, so we spent a good deal of the holiday weekend finishing the first season and starting the second. My utterly trivial thoughts thus far )

N E WAY it is a pretty decent binge watch for a long weekend, if anyone was wondering!

I'm afraid to look it up on Tumblr, although I suppose I should just be grateful that the dreamy gifsets will be of fictional Nazis, which puts Tumblr a step up from the actual press, which is writing sympathetic profiles and glamorizing puff pieces about real ones. lololololol oh god I'm not sure my liver is up to my spending the next 4+ years drunk but there's only one way to find out.

1. Your main fandom of the year?

I started to say I didn't know, but actually, possibly A Song of Ice and Fire, which I didn't think I liked when I first read it a few years ago, except then I reread it, and then I started reading analyses and theories from around the fandom, and now somehow I am on my fifth reread? And I have all these half-written posts about my own theories and analysis??? And I feel strongly enough about the books to talk shit about the show at every opportunity, even as I grudgingly admit that I probably wouldn't have read them if it weren't for the show?????? QUESTION MARKS??????????????

The rest is under the cut. )
sohotrightnow: ([buffy] like some soldier undaunted)
OK, so, in the midst of the horror that is the world right now, here are some things that have not been completely awful in the time that I was forgetting to post:


  1. My sister's wedding in May was lovely! Mannnnn we couldn't believe how lucky we got. It had been raining for most of the prior couple of weeks, and was raining when we arrived at the venue a few hours prior to the ceremony to set up, and then as we were getting hair and makeup done in a room overlooking the bay, we realized it had stopped raining, and by the time the ceremony took place it was bright and sunny and dry. Not twenty-four hours later it was raining again. It was un-friggin'-believable. And Rita was gorgeous, and everyone loved my toast at the rehearsal dinner, and it was just an A++++ event in general.

  2. Comic Con! I haven't been in a few years, but Mom, Doug and I managed to get passes for Thursday and Sunday this year. Mom had booked a hotel a little further out, because she wanted something right on a beach for Friday and Saturday, but when we mentioned we were going while chatting with relatives at the rehearsal dinner, one of Dad's sisters and her husband insisted that we use their condo, which is a few blocks from the convention center and ridiculously swanky. One of their kids also lives in the city, near the Naval base, so we had dinner with him and his family, which was also nice, and I got to see friends I haven't seen in way too long, and I spent a ton of money and had a total blast.

  3. In August we went to NYC for a few days, because I'd managed to get Hamilton tickets eight months prior for my Dad's birthday! We did some museums and had pizza and bagels and the show is so damn good, holy shit. Put it this way: the highest praise I generally hear my father give entertainment is "I thought it was pretty good." On very rare occasions -- like, I can count on both hands the number of times I've heard it, with fingers left over -- he might go as far as "I thought it was excellent." At dinner after the show, he said "That was one of the best plays I've ever seen." Mom and I gaped at each other while he went back to eating because we couldn't believe how emotional he was getting.

  4. Related to #1, RITA IS PREGNANT AHHHHHHHHHHH. She's closing in on 20 weeks now, I think? Her due date is in late May, the day before Mom's birthday. She and her husband both love Star Wars and I got the cutest dang baby blanket on Etsy. She has had to repeatedly tell her husband that if it's a boy she is absolutely not allowing Kylo, even as a middle name. We're all pretty jazzed.



So, yes. Things are not completely terrible. I am trying to make more of a point to remember that; I suspect it's a skill I'll need in the next four to eight years.

It has been a busy-as-hell few weeks, Internet, let me tell you!

First, I got the LASIK I mentioned. It went great! They warned me that while I'd see (no pun intended) significant improvement right away, it could take a few months for my eyes to fully heal. But at the one-day follow-up I was already at 20/20, and at the two-week follow-up I was at 20/15, so at this rate, it's entirely possible that at the three-month follow-up they'll need to fit me for a Cyclops-style visor. I'll let you know how that goes for me.

A lot of people have asked me for details, so here you go! Cut mostly for length, since it's bladeless so there's no real gore, but I know a few people in my circle have eye squicks, so just in case. ) In conclusion, I'm glad I did it! If you're thinking about it, go for it. Op itself is painless (though weird), first six(ish) hours after suuuuuuuck, and since then everything's fantastic.

The other big busy-ness is my sister's wedding prep! The wedding itself is May 13th, so we're finalizing everything and it's all super exciting and exhausting, and it's not even my wedding. The other bridesmaids and I organized the shower a few weeks ago, which was nice -- very low-key and small, only a dozen or so people. We finally met some of her fiance's family, his sisters and mother, who were all lovely. His mom and ours, in fact, took to each other like a house on fire, which was a delightful surprise.

This past weekend was the bachelorette party, which was fun, but ex-friggin'-hausting. There were about eight people, and we got a couple of rooms at the Gaylord at the National Harbor, and went to dinner and a few clubs. We were up so late, I thought I might die. Half of us crashed around 1, myself included, but a few people went back out, because they are presumably cyborgs. Rita had a good time, though, which was the important thing.

(LOL that makes it sound like I was miserable. I wasn't, it was fun! Staying out late and going to very loud places with lots of strangers is just very much not my scene, so I have no desire to do it again anytime soon. At least for the wedding itself I will not be sharing a hotel room with four other people, so when the night is over and I'm exhausted and socialized out I'll be able to go back to my room and be alone, or maybe with one other person, and that one from my immediate family. The night will also be ending a great deal earlier, since we have to have everything cleared out and packed up by midnight, because the venue is also a working lab.)

Also, I have been PMSing the past few days and while the emotional stuff that sometimes accompanies that for me has been minimal, my energy levels are basically zero but more importantly I would just like to whine for a bit about how having PMS during Passover is the eleventh goddamn plague. Whyyyyyyyyy can't I have all the delicious comforting things ;_;

ANYWAY. I am trying to catch up now and I like you guys and hi. ♥
sohotrightnow: Thor with a big smile on his face. ([avengers] god of thunder and :D)
Hello, hello! It has been a pretty good couple of weeks.

+ I had my annual evaluation results call with my boss, and based on a few comments when we'd discussed my self-evaluation I had been feeling fairly optimistic. Her only criticism of my self-eval was that she thought I'd been a little too hard on myself and should get more comfortable calling attention to my accomplishments, so I knew I was doing pretty well. We were also given a range to expect our bonuses/salary increases to fall within, and it was about what I'd expected -- a little more is always nice, but I am lucky enough to be pretty financially stable right now so I was fine with not getting anything significant.

WELL. When my boss said I had been understating my achievements, that wasn't just a platitude, apparently, because both my salary increase and my bonus were significantly higher than what I'd figured was the absolute highest end of possible. Like, significantly more than even the highest end of the range everyone was told to anticipate. She sent me the documentation breaking everything down, and we had a call to go over it right before my lunch break, and when I got off the call and went to lunch I opened a bottle of champagne that I had in the fridge.

+ As for what I am going to use my bonus for, I'm having LASIK later this month! In exactly ten days, actually. I've been sort of toying with the idea for a year or so, and when I found out about this windfall I figured I might as well get evaluated, especially since my vision insurance will get me 15% off. I wasn't actually optimistic -- Dad had an evaluation a few years back and was told that his corneas (corneae?) are too thin, and that not only is he not a candidate, but he needs to be extra conscientious about annual checkups because he may need a transplant before too much longer. During the evaluation the doctor initially remarked that I had a few thin spots, but went on to say that it was nothing too severe, and that I'm an excellent candidate. I'M SO JAZZED, INTERNET. SO JAZZED.

+ I've started keeping a dream journal again. I kept one really faithfully all through high school and well into college, and then got out of the habit, but the other night I had a weird one that I wanted to write down, and later that day I read this, in which it was suggested as an approach to dealing with writer's block.
It's useful to escape from external and internal judgment—by writing, for instance, in a dream diary, which you know will never be read—even if it's only for a brief period. Such escapes allow writers to find comfort in the face of uncertainty; they give writers' minds the freedom to imagine, even if the things they imagine seem ludicrous, unimportant, and unrelated to any writing project. [...] That dream could become the source for a story. And, at a minimum, it serves as a reminder that, no matter how blocked you may be, you still have the capacity to imagine something new—no matter how small and silly it may seem.
Interestingly, it also took all of three nights for me to get to the point where I realize I'm dreaming while it's happening, which is generally the first step toward lucid dreaming, which I've only done a couple of times but was pretty rad both times. One of those realizations came last night, while dream!me was being pulled over for speeding, at which point I was like "oh dip, I'm still asleep!" and woke up feeling ridiculously, hilariously pleased with myself, as if I had actually gotten away with something IRL. The note I jotted down in my journal before rolling over and falling asleep again was just "lol that's one way to get out of a ticket".

+ The weather has been friggin' lovely lately. It got up around 80F last week, and now it's cooled off and is a bit closer to normal for this time of year, although still a little warmer. And for the most part it's been sunny, too. A+ work, nature, keep it up.

So, just for fun, let's do a variation of a meme I saw making the rounds on Twitter: Leave a comment and I'll post an image I have saved on my computer with no explanation.

EDIT: You know what, it's pretty quiet around here and I've got a whole bunch of stuff on my computer, let's make it three images per comment!

I recall this meme being fun the last time I was here, sooooo let's try it again, by way of getting back in the habit of posting! Pick a date and give me a topic, and I'll ramble about that topic on your chosen date. Crossposted to my tumblr, too, since I wouldn't mind getting in the habit of doing something besides reblogging there, too.

Well that was almost a year without posting. I am reading! I just...haven't had much to say.

Some highlights of my time not posting. )

Still trying to figure out how I'm going to make myself be better about updating DW, BUT I'M GONNA. What can I say, I dream big.

Whoops.

sohotrightnow: Thor with a big smile on his face. ([avengers] god of thunder and :D)
LOL so much for posting more. /o\ What up Internet, anything new and fun going on with you?
sohotrightnow: the top of a swimming young woman's torso. ([stock] all of a sudden I heard a note)
It occurs to me that I haven't made any posts in two months, and a non-flocked personal post in even longer! Honestly, this is largely because I have been super-boring recently.

BUT JULES, WHEN HAS THAT EVER STOPPED YOU BEFORE? Good question! I think I've matured somewhat. I mean, not a LOT, but somewhat. Also, my schedule is just...not that ridiculous, really -- my work week is pretty normal, about 45 hours a week (and I get overtime \o/), but add another 2+ hours' commute each day, and I'm generally pretty drained by the time I get home. I've been going to the gym more, and now that the pools are open I'm jazzed about getting in some swim time after work. I learned last summer that even a handful of laps could make a huge difference to my post-work mood.

I am occasionally on Tumblr but mostly I go check it every few weeks, fill up my queue, and then forget about it for another few weeks, because I like the pictures I find on Tumblr but so much about its functionality is annoying. My public Twitter is [twitter.com profile] juleshastweets, also, if you feel like chatting during the day, also! But really I have not felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile. Or rather...I hadn't felt particularly fannish about much of anything for awhile.







YESSSSSSS. I am currently pretty deeply sunk in Mass Effect. There are a couple of fics I'd like to write, even, but every time I think about writing fic I either get really exhausted (which is what happens to me w/r/t writing in general at the moment, and which is annoying and frustrating and I am trying to figure out a way to work through, because I am fully aware that my writing is not particularly special but it was really fun and satisfying for me and I do miss it) or I just end up deciding to play through again. THAT GAME THO. I seriously wasn't aware that I could still have fannish feels like that. Not exaggerating, I have not felt this kind of visceral fannishness about something in years. I got spoiled for the ending of ME3 and was grateful for it because I legit had to stop playing for about a week to deal with my rage. It's just so great.

My current favorite thing is the Indoctrination Theory, which is one of those things that I think is giving the text waaaaay too much credit but which I love anyway. It's like the Ron-is-Dumbledore theory. Y'all should share your favorite theories of that ilk with me, actually, where you know there's no way they're what's actually there in the text but they're so elegant and weird that you love them anyway and love that someone made the connections and came up with them. I just find them invariably delightful. I am not mocking here, I legit love shit like that and admire people who can think it through, because I do not generally have the patience for that kind of analysis. (Also the Indoctrination Theory DOES make more sense than the actual ending, so.)

N E WAY if there is anything you would like to hear me talk about in particular, as I make more of an effort to post here again, go ahead and let me know! I think there are a bunch of prompts from this meme I still need to fill, also. /o\ Whatever, as long as I get them done within a year of getting the prompts, it counts, right? Right, good, glad we had this conversation.

Yesterday I saw The Winter Soldier with [personal profile] cyprinella! It was fun. Cap is not really my favorite Avenger (&THOR;) but I got nothing against him, and enjoyed the first one well enough. I liked this one much more, though. I actually don't think any of this is spoilery, since it's mostly self-indulgent nonsense about the geography of the movie. )

Besides that, I got a permanent crown on one of my teeth on Saturday. I lost most of my weekend, and foresee losing most of my spare time in the foreseeable future, to Mass Effect. That's some game, huh?

Hey, so, if you're in the WTNV fandom, you may know of my dear friend [tumblr.com profile] branwyn-says. She was planning to move from her current home next month, and is desperately in need of a job, since she may shortly be homeless otherwise. She's also uninsured and dealing with massive dental issues. And then, a few days ago, one of her soon-to-be-ex-neighbors raped her (if you find yourself scrolling through her tumblr, be warned that the post in which she talks about that is on the second page, and is fairly graphic).

If you can kick in even a couple of dollars to help her move, and get herself situated so she doesn't end up living in her car again when she does move out, that would be incredibly helpful. She's also welcoming distractions, and you can get an idea of what she's into by reading her tumblr -- where the button to donate via paypal is also located!

Alternately, if you know of any resources in North Carolina -- she's in the Raleigh area right now, but was tentatively planning to move to Charlotte, having a possible job offer there -- that would be great (if you're not comfortable leaving them in her ask, you can let me know in the comments, which I'll screen). Leads on potential roommates and/or jobs would be great, as well; she has a strong English background, and experience working as a carer/health aide. I don't know that she's set on Charlotte, but it's the best job possibility she's got at the moment. Hell, if you have experience navigating social services in NC, or can help her find someone who does -- Medicaid, unemployment, women's shelters -- that would be helpful, too.

As she said in a post about her current job/living situation, a week or so ago (this was before she was raped, though she's dealing with PTSD already from some other stuff in her upbringing, and it's mentioned in the post):
So…what I’m asking is, not really for money (although it would be disingenuous to pretend I couldn’t use it, and I have put the donate button back up on my main blog page). But what I could really use is for the Tumblr braintrust to try and…help me see my way through this more clearly. At this point, I’m so screwed in the head that I can’t even navigate the services that help the mentally ill find jobs (not that there are like, a lot of those.)
So, yeah. Please, if you can -- a few dollars, some tips, a job lead, any of those would be helpful. Hell, if you can just link to this post, or if you're on tumblr, reblog one of her posts on her situation and boost the signal, that would be really great.

Thanks. ♥

Catching up, as somehow yesterday completely got away from me. Three today, probably! Possibly? Hopefully. Two, at least. Prompts are here!

[personal profile] poisontaster asked about the most comfortable thing I own, which was REALLY DIFFICULT. Comfort is a huge priority for me when I'm buying clothes, so a lot of my wardrobe is really comfortable, and picking a winner was hard! At one point I was considering cheating and doing most comfortable top, bottom, dress, shoes, etc., but I was too lazy. /o\

I think #1, though, is probably a pair of jeans I got at the thrift store a year or so ago. They're denim trousers from Express, the Editor style, but they fit SO MUCH BETTER than any version of those I've ever tried on in the store, and I don't see them on their website or anything, so I guess maybe they're a couple of years old at this point? They are so great. I love them. The fabric is really soft and smooth, and if it were just a more consistent solid blue you wouldn't be able to tell it was denim at all; they would just look like regular trousers. I come home from work and they're the first thing I put on. Well, no, it's about even whether I'll put them on first or take my bra off first, it varies. Plus, since they were from one of my favorite thrift stores in town, on one of their discount days, they cost me less than $5, which you can't beat with a stick. I'm at work, so I can't check, but I think there's less of that stretch crap to them -- you guys I hate stretch jeans so much, SO MUCH, stretch + low rise is the worst combination ever, they are impossible for me to keep up -- and they just hang so nicely. I love them. I LOVE THEM.
sohotrightnow: ([stock] what's going on on this side)
Ughhhh still fighting off a super-annoying cold. The best thing I can say of it is that I got my flu shot, so I can be fairly confident that it's not the flu. Hooray?

Anyhoo, yesterday was super-busy at work, so I didn't manage to get to the prompt from [personal profile] poisontaster, which was a really fun one -- my most comfortable article of clothing -- that had me going "oh, this is going to be tricky". Since I finally got my bag back from United on Wednesday night, though, and am planning a big closet clean-out and laundry party this weekend, that will fit nicely into an empty slot on Saturday, anyway, so look out for that. (Still a few days for claiming, and with my hit-or-miss rate of getting things done on time I anticipate some might end up being moved to January, so feel free to toss me suggestions.)

Today, it's going to be a fairly lovely topic from [personal profile] schmerica, Fry and Tonks! Not the Futurama and Harry Potter characters, although I am pretty much always happy to yammer about Futurama and Harry Potter (I am in the middle of an HP reread right now and it was SUCH A SOLID CHOICE, Internet, let me tell you). Fry and Tonks are the names of my cats.

Pictures and more yammering under the cut. )
