|| DD: Just say we were lovers

Look, I remembered to post again!

Last night we had a combined birthday party for Lara and Alison, and I made them a cake. BEHOLD!

To be fair, Woot made the actual cake itself since I was just doing to make a flat one but he decided 3D was the way to go. I really didn't think it was going to survive - you can't tell but it's on an impressive lean. It was delcious though and you can tell it's meant to be a Tardis so that's all that matters really. (The both of them are big Who fans, obviously. I only like old Who but I liked making the cake!)

Tomorrow (except it's today now because it's gone 5am) I have an appointment with a dental specialist to talk about a wisdom tooth. I need to get it removed but it turns out that the root is wrapped around the nerve or something so the dentist point blank said he wouldn't take it out. Which... fun. The appointment tomorrow is $200 and that's just for an x-ray and the guy telling me what I can do about it. I dread to think how much the actual removal is going to cost. It literally makes me whole body tense up just thinking about it. (The tooth I got pulled the other week only cost me $140 and I honestly almost cried with relief in the dentist chair.)

Money stress! Everyone loves money stress! I am currently earning $30 under what my rent is which is not at all stressful and making me constantly worried - who would worry about such a thing as that! The current reason for my lack of funds is actually a bit ridiculous - it's because I got a job. I was working a temporary typing position and since I'm on a government benefit I had to declare that money. Which would be all fine and dandy but the job paid fortnightly and the benefit pays weekly, and if you don't declare your earnings every week they have to fine you for it. But if I declared it by the week then I would have a week in between where I had no money whatsoever. Fun, right?

But I'm not working that job anymore and hopefully the next one I find will be weekly! (Not that jobs are exactly easy to find right now. Christchurch being earthquake city it's kind of difficult to find jobs unless you're in the construction business. That one is booming!)

It's my birthday in two weeks-ish and Lara made me put together a list of things I wanted that she could pick from. The list turned out to be all books and comic-related things. I'm rather predictable. (If I was her I'd just pick whichever thing was cheapest. I'm not really fussed about getting presents but she enjoys giving them.)

Speaking of comic books, I went to the Armageddon Expo a few weeks back, which is the geeky sci-fi/fantasy/comics/anime etc etc event we have here each year. It's not exactly ComicCon but we're a wee little place so I suppose that's fair. I even made a costume this year

Am I not the spitting image of Jean Grey? (After she'd eaten all the other X-Men, obviously.)

Further comic book ramblings: CAPTAIN AMERICA 2: WINTER SOLDIER. Holy shit, Winter Soldier SO EXCITE! It was pretty obvious from the first movie that they were going to eventually bring Bucky back and do the whole Winter Soldier in some way, but still I'm excited by the confirmation! All I need is Bucky/Natasha, you guys. IT'S ALL I WANT IN THIS WORLD. Please please please let me have my comic book true loves on screen! I know it's not likely since Avengers was really setting up Black Widow/Hawkeye as the pairing but BLACK WIDOW/WINTER SOLDIER THEY ARE THE MOST BESTEST LOVERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. (Or, at least, in comics. No comic relationship is better... except for Carol Danvers/Jessica Drew - shh! It's real! Shut up!)

Lara and I are both really excited for Silent Hill 2 as well. In my case I don't know why since I am terrible at horror movies! And having now watched the trailer I have even less doubt of my ability to actually make it through the movie without crying in fear. Terrible at horror movies! Atrocious! And yet... want. We're going to go to the movies to see it: this is a Bad Idea. The last horror movies I saw at the cinema were House on Haunted Hill and Thirteen Ghosts, both of which still sort of haunt my memory to this day. So... yeah... cool.

It's started raining. This means busing to appointment adventures in the rain. Always fun!
JWW: I have seen a thousand fractures

It's a thrilling tale of spider heroics

I just rescued Lara from Certain Death.

Or, more correctly, Lara just came into the living room to tell me that a Really Big Spider was hiding in her nightstand and please please please could I come get rid of it. Now, while I may be the only one in the house who will happily pick up the cute little spiders and play with them on my hands, I DO NOT like the creepy-arse big black house spiders. I don't even know what the hell species they are, but they're big and black and while very attractive and fascinating once I've got them in a glass, I don't want them running up my sleeve. Which they totally try to.

(My attempts to find out the species just now lead me to realize that New Zealand does have huntsman spiders we just call them Avondale spiders. God damn it, those fuckers are why I left Australia! Creepy little non-poisonous bastards.)

So I spent twenty minutes pulling things carefully out of her bedside table looking for the gross little thing, which ended up being much smaller than I expected but I wouldn't sleep knowing that thing was next to my head either.

CRUSHED. DEAD. He is now a part of the house permanently because I squashed him into the carpet. (Or her.)

I'm really itchy now. I'm pretty sure I'm covered in spiders.

(no subject)

Why is it that as soon as I start making an Eris icon, a dirty great big spider shows up in my room??

Waaa. It's just sitting on my waredrobe. I'm sure it's watching me. Ewwky little minion!

Have explained outloud to Eris that while I do worship/adore her, I don't appricaite hairy huntsmens in my room at 3am when I was contemplating sleep. I refuse point blank to sleep in the same room as that thing.

*keeps checking spider to check it hasn't moved*

I don't like huntsmen. Other spiders? Don't bother me so much. Huntsmen? Uber wiggans.

waaa. go away, spider! I uploaded the Eris icon! you can go away now!

Maybe it's dead? Yes. Came into my room and died on my waredrobe. But since it's on a vertical surface and not falling off, I'm thinking alive. It's missing a leg. Why are huntsman always missing a leg. I don't think, in my whole life, I've ever seen an eight legged one.


I'd shoo a hand at it, but they have a tendancy to run up hands. and skuttle across floors all flat and smooshed and creepy.

Did I mention I'm not fond of these little fuckers? Cause I'm not.

*shouts at spider from the other side of the room*

Go! Psst! Go away! Shoo!

Not working. I'm far to tired for this. So, erm, I'll just sit here and hope it goes away.

So my usual solution to everything in life.

*hides behind her pillow* protect me, Pillow.

If I go to sleep it'll get me. Or Eris will come for me.

So really, this could be a good thing.

Go away, Spider! I'm looking for your demoness mistress, not your fuzzy little creepyness! Duuuude, I've just realised it's blocking my escape from the room. Okay, so maybe 'blocked' it a little strong. I mean it's just a baby, so not even as big as-


*breathes* and my heart jumped a mile. do not like this spider!!!!

waaa. go away

*posts this before the insanity goes to far*
