I know I’ve been gone a long time. Things got a little hectic at work with one of my coworkers getting fired and then another’s father dying so she had to fly down to Florida. I had to pick up their shifts but at least this coming week is back to normal but then it goes a little wonky again.
But anyway, I was working on trying to get that fairy contest drawing done and it seemed like forever but I finally finished it so if you guys could go take a look and comment, I’d appreciate it.
I’ve been applying to jobs left and right but it’s hard to get employed with the economy the way it is and everyone else is out there looking for a job too. People keep saying I should be happy that I at least have a job which is true, but how great is it to be stuck in a job that you absolutely despise? Ah well, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I get a call from someone and until then, I’m going to keep applying.
My parents are down in Florida for the next 2 weeks and they just emailed me telling me they put a bid on a home?! What the?! I guess it’s just going to be a “winter home” since, like most people who live in the cold regions, winters suck and you just want to go somewhere warm until it heats up again. Plus they’re retired and it seems a rule that if you’re retired, you have to move down to Florida or at least have a winter home there.XD I hope they get it though because then *I* can go down and visit.
I talked to our founder, Adam for awhile on the phone the other night which was nice since I was grumpy and at work and he cheered me up. I’m going to be having another workshop at the NYAF and this year I’m going to be showing how to color on the computer. Should be easier than lugging around all the crap needed to show how to color with colored pencils.XD
Whelp, that’s all for now, I have a lot more to talk about but don’t want to bore people to death. So behave everyone and I’ll be seeing ‘ya!
Hel-LOOOOOO Otaku! I actually wasn’t going to update today but than was commenting on people’s posts and saw quite a few had updated so figured, what the hell. I’m going to be starting a new drawing today for a contst that I was actually PMed about. I don’t usually enter contests but this one involves creating a fairy character so…c’mon! I mean…a fairy! I HAVE too. *much luv to fairies*
An d speaking of fairies, Sessy mentioned the term “knock on wood” in her post and I thought it was funny because I was reading a history book on religions of the past and in there it tells you where that phrase comes from and it’s so cool! Since I’m lazy, I’m just going to copy and paste what I had typed out in my comment on Sessy’s post about where that term came from:
The term, “knock on wood,” is actually an old Wiccan/Pagan phrase dating back around 3000-1500 BC when people thought fairies were in fact, real. Originally, fairies were thought to be the spirits of those who had past but then it evolved into being spirits of things found in nature and one of the main rules of being a Pagan/Wiccan is to have a high respect for nature and to not do anything bad or else you'll piss off the fairies. So, if you were having good luck, you'd literally, "knock on wood" as thanks for the fairies for giving you good fortune because if you didn't give thanks, the fairies could take it away from you and then give you bad luck.
I thought was that so neat…no wonder I say that phrase all the time! It’s giving thanks to the fairies!
I need to change my theme…I’ve had this one since Fall. I usually change it every season but I was kinda an emotional wreck during the changing of the seasons this year. Spring will be here soon though! I have to figure out what to make it…hmmmm. But another season of Ghost Hunters arrived via Netflix in my mail today so WOHOO! I’m going to watch me some paranormal huntin’!
Whelp, behave everyone, see ya soon and remember, don’t piss off the fairies!
My kitty, Jenks had a nice birthday…just gave him lots of attention and spoiled with with canned cat food. My mom brought him over gifts of toy mices and other fun stuff for him. She got a custom tag for his collar with his name on the front and my contact info on the back if he were ever to run out and get lost or something. Let’s hope that never happens.>_<
How many of you watch American Idol? I was SO happy that Adam made it though! Not our Otaku Adam, of course…but he’s the one that Simon called “Robert Patterson” handsome and then Ryan made the comment about how he feels about “having some Edward Cullen” in him and Adam said he loved those books so yep, he’s my fave contestant. Helps that he can sing like nobody’s business so I hope he goes far.
I enjoyed my 2 days off thoroughly. They were nice and relaxing. We learned some tricky moves in my belly dancing class so my hips and abs were a little sore but that’s good! Shows I’m working them and that can only lead to improvement. We had a different teacher this time because our regular instructor was sick with the flu so it was neat learning things in a little different way. I like our “sub” in the fact that she did a little more one-on-one and really showed what muscles you need to flex or keep loose to do certain moves….but she got distracted a little more easily in that she’d start doing some moves and than go nuts into a dance routine leaving us like…what the heck is she doing? Lol! But it was fun and she was selling some items and I already have a belly dance skirt but she was selling a scarf that I wanted so bad! She sells them for a lot cheaper than retail and they’re MUCH better quality too…plus, one of them was green so I just had to get it since it’s my fave color. Here’s what the skirt looks like…except mine has better quality, thicker material but at least you get the idea:
Isn’t it hawt?! Oh I love it…now when I shake my hips and do the shimmies and hip drops it looks and sounds so cool!
Sunday it looks like I have to be fitted for a bridesmaid dress. A lady I work with asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding and I agreed…even though I hate being in weddings. Ergh. I’ll probably still have to take the dress to my seamstress since dresses don’t fit me around the waist because I’m too thin and no dress made in a store fits me right. Oh well, at least I don’t have to pay for the dress. lol!
Thanks to all those who checked out my drawing! Love ya! In case you missed it, here’s a link to the chibi version of myself and my kitty:
And speaking of kitty, today is Jenks’ birthday! Well, I don’t know if it’s his real birthday but I had adopted him Oct.25th and they said that he was 8 months old so I dubbed Feb.25th to be his 1st birthday! I’ve only had him 4 months but I already can’t imagine my place without him. He follows me around like a puppy…anywhere I am, he’s right there. He’s my little lap warmer and I call him my ninja cat for all the ways he sneaks up on me and when we play he does the somersaults in the air.XD He’s wonderful because he actually lets me sleep in! Bliss…he sleeps, curled up on my left side and when he hears me moving around, then he crawls onto my chest and purrs and wants to be petted. So cute. Happy birthday to my special little guy who was saved by the humane society from an abused and neglected home and found his way into my home where he’s spoiled rotten and given lots of lovin’.
I have the next 2 days off from work! Wohoo! I was going to do another drawing but decided instead to have some “me” time. I have some things to catch up on…like cleaning, laundry, that kind of fun stuff. Plus, I have some books that are only partially read through that must get some needed attention. My belly dancing class is tonight plus Ghost Hunters AND American Idol are on! Oh man, I love Wednesdays. Of course, I’ll leave some room to go onto PixieHollow.com and fly around for awhile.
Here’s a picture of my kitty, all cozy on the quilt of my bed. So, behave everyone and I’ll see you guys around! Bye bye!
Hello all you wonderful people, how are you?! I’m doing alright…a little bummed that we got a big snow storm yesterday after the snow had melted and I was all happy to see the snow gone and birds and critters starting to come out again and now…more stinkin’ snow! Ergh. I need to move somewhere that rarely if never gets snow. Seriously.
Anyhoo, sorry I’ve been gone again. Not that long though, what, about a week? I dunno, but lately I’ve been addicted to a website called PixieHollow.com. It’s Disney run and all you do is make a fairy and then you get to fly around and meet other people and do quests for the famous Disney fairies like Tinkerbell. I’m glad that I met other adults on that site so I don’t feel like a creepy 20-some year old on there. I’ve met a few mothers and grandmothers on there! Lol!
But yeah, I got a new drawing done! It’s a chibi version my myself and my putty-tat, Jenks so if you could take a look and comment, I’d be appreciative:
So, behave everyone and I’ll see you guys around! Bye bye!
