So before I learned that it was my computer, not my wireless card that was on the fritz, I was going to write about the bizarre dream I had last night.

I was rooming with [ profile] burningvigor, and she'd gotten the last Harry Potter book. But she didn't want to actually read it, so she gave it to me. I started reading it, and a few pages in, I look at her and go 'fuck!'. She asks what's wrong, and I explain that reading the book has sucked me back into HP fandom.

Then it shifted, and I was on this ice island and there were all these animals, and a bunch of other messed up stuff including Disney cartoon villains and royal marriages, and I was being spied on by these two people I used to know - both of whom I had bad fallings out with. One of them was Schiz, the other was this chick I met through Schiz. The bizarre thing about the dream was that they were friendly with each other, when they had had a major falling out. They were following my LJ, it was very odd.

I've decided to write my Pride/Sloth desk-pr0n on my laptop, nevermind. I can't use my thumbdrive to transfer it to Tres, because Scorpius's USB ports don't work. Damn it all... I guess I'll just burn it to a CD. Assuming that still works.

Also? Why, oh why did I allow myself to look at the Good Omens scents on BPAL? WRYYYYYY? *wants War, Crowley and Aziraphale*

I'm in a pissy mood this morning and I have no idea why. I woke up in a foul, foul mood. No good reason for it, so I'm blaming it on hormones. Distressed, I can understand. Discontent? Understandable. Pissy? No good reason for it.

Today I'm going to try and relax some. I need to find some stuff, and the ferrets need baths and nail trimmings, but I'm hopefully going to get a chance to just kick back a bit.

I wore Hellcat yesterday. Holy hell, I'm in love with that scent! It holds that rich, warm, sweet smell for hours. On my skin it's exactly as it smelled in the bottle, rich buttercream with hazlenut and a hint of something else. It died down to rich honey and almonds by the time I went to bed, which was also a delicious scent. I will definitely be seeking out more of this one!

[ profile] momoiro_usagi, I need to talk to you about some stuffs! Let me know when you can be around for chatting?

At least I got a good headstart on my laundry for the day!

My Loveraft scents came today! I came home to BPAL! Yay!

Rundown of What I Got )

I've been waiting for this collection for so long, and I'm so thrilled with it. Definitely worth the wait! Also, I got a lab postcard that didn't make me creeped out!

And now, to clean.

Today is a writing day. Not original fiction, I made some progress on that yesterday, but wrapping up fics I have due. This week I want to try and get one fic done for each of my claims, plus my [ profile] fma_fuh_q fic. Which I think I need to scrap and start over, because it's turning into a sweet, romantic little story. Which would be all well and good, if it weren't Envy month. Meh, I dunno. Anyone want to look over what I have so far and tell me if I'm wandering into the waters of insanely OOC?

I'm still wibbling on the BPAL thing. The more I talk about it, the more I really, really want to do it. But then I remind myself I've got a month long vacation coming up, I need to save my money. Then I tell myself "well, you're going to have 450 dollars to go with. You can spare 25 of that and 25 of what's in your account'. Which is a perfectly nice compromise.

And here's my Interests Collage. I don't know what half those things are.

Mmm, sleep. I slept damn well last night, and woke up feeling revitalized and actually eager to get to doing things!

I've been working on my original writing, on a piece for Flesh and Blood press. They're a surreal fantasy/horror magazine, dealing in fiction that's less gory and violent and more disturbing and creepy. [ profile] mehitabelcat, would you be able to look over it when it's done? (Which will be, er, I really don't know. It's only going to be around 5,000 words, so it shouldn't take me too long to finish the rough draft.)

I am also wibbling. I really, really want to do the BPAL Trick or Treat Inquisition, but there's the issue of money. I'm trying to save my money, and while I can afford it, I feel like it would be a frivolous purchase. But I love the Trick T-shirt and the sound of both the Trick scents. And this is only available until October 15th, whereas the Order of the Dragon collection is live through December, giving me plenty of time to order the scents I want when I am feeling more comfortable in my savings. I decided not to do the Naughty or Nice Inquisition last Christmas, and I still regret that. I'm pretty sure I'm going to regret not doing the Trick or Treat one this year.

Ah well, there's always the next Inquisition.

It's rainy and icky today and Weather Bug won't shut up about alerts. And I really, really need to clean my room soon. Maybe I'll get to that tomorrow.

So, some of you know about yesterday's horrible power issue. It was due to a small plane crashing not too far away. Like, we could see the smoke from it, but figured it was a controlled burn down by the football field. So, yeah.

In other news, I submitted a short story to Jupiter Press a few days ago. So prepare for Fey to be ridiculously spazzy and twitchy for the next few weeks. (Turn around to hear back is 2-3 weeks.) And if anyone wants to be added to my original writing filter, please comment here and let me know. I keep all my original stuff and posts about my original stuff under a heavy filter, for various reasons.

I ended up ordering myself some BPAl, also. I got a set of six imps from the Picnic in Arkham collection, and a bottle of Misk U. The other ones I ordered were: Arkham, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, Cthulhu, The High Priest Not To Be Described, and Shoggoth. I am ridiculously excited about trying them all. And I totally forgot I was nearly out of Chimera and didn't buy a bottle. I shall have to do that when I place my next order. Plus work on getting bottles of the Dracula collection.

I need to write. Like, a lot. Among other things. But I find myself wanting to just stay in bed and play Sims all day...

Ah well, time for breakfast!

Long Day

*flails like a flailing thing*

Bah, Wednesdays! So long and exhausting. Halfway done with cleaning stuffs as of this post. I've got more commentaries to do, something else I need to take care of, and dinner making. Somewhere in there, I'd like to get a chance to write.

I'm feeling rather frayed and rabid at the moment!

But I'm setting myself up a reward system, to encourage me to work on my writing. Every time I complete a story - write it, edit it, polish it, the works - I will allow myself to order one 5ml bottle of BPAL.

Which means I can place an order once I'm done with the editing on The Blurred Line.

Editing's the part that I really, really hate. I'll drag my heels and make excuses and whatnot to not get around to editing. I think I have all of two stories that have been edited.

And I should get back to cleaning!

I'm.... I'm hyperventilating here. Miskatonic U, of which a dear friend gave me an imp of that I've never used for fear of losing that amazing scent, is now a general catalogue scent. I can buy a bottle of it. I can buy a bottle of Misk U. I can buy a bottle of Akrham. I can buy a bottle of Azaroth. I can buy a bottle of The High Priest Not To Be Described. I can buy a bottle of Cthulhu. I can wallow in Lovecraftian scents!

Or I could, if I had any money. But see! That's the awesome thing! These aren't going anywhere! I can wait to buy them. I don't have to panic and flail like I do whenever Misk U comes up for sale on a sale comm. I can just buy a bottle when I have some spare money.

I don't have an icon to fully contain my joy right now.

Also, I need a Lovecraft icon. Desperately.

ETA: And there's an Limited Edition Dracula themed collection! Two of my favorite, favorite things now available as scented oils! It's like Christmas, in a way! I want The Bloody Sword, The Brides of Dracula, Carfax Abbey (that is my must have scent, I think, from this collection), Count Dracula and Dr John Seward. And these are available until December 1st, so I have time to actually get them.

I came home and there was not one but two packages waiting for me! It was a wonderful surprise to come home to, as I'd been expecting one today and one tomorrow!

Thank you so much, [ profile] scribbulus_ink and [ profile] visionshadows! The imps arrived today, and they're wonderful! I'm in love with Whitechapel, Port-Au-Prince, Noctnista and Bengal! They're all wonderful, and we can't thank you enough! And the tea! That was so sweet!

Thank you so much!
