Tapped Out

I tried to think of a [community profile] philedom challenge I could redo today, but I just couldn't come up with anything.

And I was going to make a banner for a fanfiction, but I couldn't find one I liked enough. (In the above picture, I was going for Reyes, post IWTB. Lots of Photoshop filters and smudging.)

19. What are you most interested in reading?

Mostly, I read mystery/crime books like Patricia Cornwell. It usually takes me a couple of months to finish a book.

I bought a few Stephen King books and some others at the annual library book sale last weekend. Other than garage sales, this is where most of my books come from. I never actually check out books from the library because I read so slow.

I also like biographies and how-to books.

20. Are you involved in any fandoms? If so, what are they?

I'm not really involved in any fandoms. I think I know Buffy about as well as anything, which isn't saying much. I've been rewatching Season 2 of The X-Files. I'm over halfway through, and I haven't remembered hardly any of the episodes so far. I think it's been several years since I watched them. They are much richer than I remembered, too.

I have to work half a day Saturday, which means I probably won't have time to make a fanmix for the [community profile] philedom Olympics, but I'll keep working on it and post it sometime in the future.

18. What don't you talk about here, either because it's too personal or because you don't have the energy?

Um, pretty much everything?

I feel awful today. It's hot and muggy. Yahoo! says the high was 92.

I only got about 5 hours of sleep last night. I didn't go to bed until after 11, and a little after midnight, I heard my mom banging around in the bathroom, so I got up to see what was wrong.

There was a fly in the bathroom, and she was trying to kill it. It landed up above the bathroom mirror underneath the fluorescent light. She swatted and hit the light, which flickered and went out.

So at 12:30 I was climbing onto the bathroom counter to change the bulb. It was one of those big long fluorescent rods. I didn't think to check and see if she just knocked it loose from the connectors. But anyway, it's fixed.

I had to drag my box fan out of the corner, and it was still too hot to sleep comfortably. I don't know what I'll do this summer.

Also, I think I'm going to have to buy a new chill mat for my laptop on payday since I can't find the usb cable for the old one. I don't even know if it still works. I haven't used it since I didn't have a laptop for over a year.

15. What 5 things are you obsessed with currently? )

Is it only Day 9?!

9. Tell me about your default icon.

I made it from a screencap stolen from http://www.chrisnu.com from the Season 9 episode "Daemonicus".

Normally, I would take my own screencap, but I was lazy that day.

Uhhh...so where was I?

Friday night, I got some things together to take to the annual eWaste Disposal thingy. I got rid of 3 old laptops and a cell phone. We also got rid of an old tv, a boombox and a computer monitor that belonged to someone else. I was going to get rid of my stereo since the only thing that works on it is the aux in and speakers, but I didn't. My allergies flared up from all the cleaning, so I went to bed early.

Saturday, we made tacos for lunch. Then, I cleaned my room for a while. I didn't make much progress other than finding my Wacom tablet and installing it. Later, we had another tornado warning, so my mom, Wishy and I hung out in the hall for an hour or so. I didn't feel like turning the computer back on, so I went to bed after that.

Sunday, I slept most of the day. It looks like most of the storms are going to go around us tonight, but we may get some rain later.

3. Do you use other blogging sites? Why or why not?

I use Livejournal pretty regularly, and I have some other blogs that I don't really use.

I like Tumblr because you can upload pictures directly, but I don't use it much.

Okay, that was boring.

I didn't do much this evening. I watched the storm damage on the news, and cleaned some stuff out of the fridge.

I'm skipping the [community profile] philedom challenge today because...I don't really get it.

Why did you sign up for Dreamwidth?

One of my Livejournal friends posted about signing up for a placeholder account just in case everyone on her friend list abandoned LJ and flocked over to Dreamwidth.

So, I decided to check it out. It sounded like a great place for creativity, and I had a chance to get in on it near the beginning, so I paid for an account.

Then I realized that I wasn't as creative as I thought I was, so I deleted the account.

A couple of years later, I decided to give it another shot.
