Guess what I just finished sewing????


Better pictures to follow. Tomorrow night probably (my camera is at home). FOR NOW ENJOY THIS CRAPPY WEBCAM PIC. Also, my Reptar On ICE!!! SHIRT!!!!!!


Next thing 2 sew: [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom's gift. I'll be getting the last bits of fabric I need for it tomorrow or Friday o u o

I'm also already planning another scarf (I love scarves). This one wouldn't be hemmed though. I'm thinking two pieces of fabric (fleece probably) sewn together down the long ends, then flipped inside-out & the short ends cut and knotted. You know, like a knotted blanket?

This might be a good use for that Gambit deck-of-cards themed fleece remnant I bought...

(Also the survey is still going! If you haven't filled it out yet plz do! I need to know which animal u all prefer 6 u 9 once it looks like I'm going to get no more responses, I'll make frequency charts and things to show y'all the results)

(Also also: I hate nightmares that turn into sleep paralysis. Do not get me sleep paralysis for a gift, that would be a crap gift)

[livejournal.com profile] outdatedclocks has pointed out that my lower-back/hip problems, and my leg problems, are probably all related to the issues I have with my feet (lack of arches?). I've been making do with CVS-brand arch support pads, but they're not really enough, and I'd like to be able to do some cardio and upper-body stuff again, which I can't really now since my back hurts alllll the time. I'd been putting off talking to my doctor about it because of my terrible experiences with my last one...even though this one's shown no indication she's suddenly going to go all 'you're lying, you must be sneaking nachos in the middle of the night, fatty' on me. In fact, she'll probably be happy to help me out, since she wants me exercising before I go on T since I have a genetic disposition towards hypertension (dad's been hospitalized for it).

BTW, for those curious about the whole doctor saga, since I've posted it around a few places but not actually here at my main journal I think (since I just realized last night [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom had never read the whole thing)...I submitted the whole thing to First, Do No Harm (excellent blog BTW) so you can read it here (it's so long I don't see a need to copy+paste it here P:)

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] ocelotofdoom, we might be hanging out this weekend :D or rather, probably are. I am still working out the logistics, I think I'll stay on campus this weekend and take the train into the city. It would mean missing a therapy appointment, but I've skipped weeks in the past (or rather, therapist has cancelled on me) so I know it won't do any damage emotionally or to my comfort level with him.

Okay I really should go to class 6 u 9;;

Soooo Paige is playing Animal Parade, one of the newish Harvest Moon games. (I am still only good at A Wonderful Life, but she got Two Towns for xmas and has offered to let me try it)

I am watching her start the actual plot, which involves rescuing the Harvest Goddess. Apparently nature's power is drying up, and this has some sort of...effect on the people, as well. She says soon people would not be able to live there. Also, children are...disappearing.

None of the characters seem actually all that concerned about the disappearance of their children.

What if they haven't disappeared? What if they've been...hidden? The townspeople have no way of knowing what the Harvest Goddess wants; so if they started to make guesses...out of desperation, since they literally can't leave (the town is on an island, and Paige informs me there is very little wind, so it's difficult to leave the island)...well, TBH, that the Harvest Goddess might require a sacrifice wouldn't be an entirely unreasonable guess.

But what would the sacrifice do to her? To the land that apparently depends on her and this mysterious 'power of nature'?

Well, I was just thinking...not much grows in Silent Hill.

So guys I'm at work right now but when I get home I'm gonna make the snickerdoodles. So I was wondering if there would be any interest in me taking some videos of me baking? I am a super baby baker (i.e. inexperienced) so it probably won't be very instructional, but it could be amusing :D

ETA did I just use the same icon three posts in a row?! What is wrong with meeee

So I made some more icons! Of...my dog this time!

This was pretty much just for fun and practice, I'm pretty sure nobody but me wants icons of Tripper P: I mean, if you really want one, you can take one? xD just don't pretend he's your dog, that would be creepy.

I tried out some of the corny filters photoshop has. I only found one that really seems worth using in serious icons, and I can probably get the same effect only better some other way.

Tripper Icons )

I still haven't decided which one I want to use...
