Wow... lots to update, but I'm lazy. :p

A) I had a BLAST in california with [livejournal.com profile] cynlee, [livejournal.com profile] hamatokameko, [livejournal.com profile] brinatello and Christine. However, I have pics for that, so hopefully I will post those later :D

B) Jenn's dad is prolly going to get heart surgery, so Jenn is leaving tomorrow (May 5th) and will be in Utah for THREE WEEKS! D: I am going to miss her SO much!! :(

C) Osama Bin Ladin is DEAD! O_O This quote from Mark Twain sums up my feelings on that quite eloquently "I have never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." (quote stolen from [livejournal.com profile] neuronautica) hee hee. I hope this clears up all the annoying "birther" nonsense about our president. I SO want Obama to tell the public "Oh, sorry I couldn't get a copy of my birth certificate to you quicker, I was kinda busy tracking down and killing Osama Bin Laden. But next time I'm working on a important matter of national security which my predecessor ignored and you want to quibble with me over schematic details, I'll get right on that." I know he won't, but it would still be EPIC. ;D

D) Jenn & I picked up her xbox while we were in Utah. XD Feel free to add me if you feel so inclined! My Gamertag is "MicaTurtle" :D (Jenn's is "Soliloquy79") Does anyone on my Flist have an xbox? Nyar?
I've been having fun playing some games on the xbox. However, I'm wondering a few things:
1) Is there any cheaper way to buy/earn/get "Microsoft Points"? If you buy thru your xbox, it ends up being like $21.19 for 1600 points (which is roughly 1.4 cents per point, and since a rockband song "costs" 160 points, it's kinda a ripoff :p If I buy the prepaid cards is it a better deal?
2) Does anyone here have an xbox gold membership? Is it worth the price?
3) Does anyone know of any good free downloadable games on the xbox marketplace? Also, is there some secret way to sort by price?

Stoopid Spam bots! MY LIVEJOURNAL IS NOT YOUR PLAYGROUND! Argh. I seem to be getting a ton of spam comments lately (they especailly seem to be targeting This entry for some reason.) :p Most of the spam is about cheap "sowtware" (misspelling of software)

Stuff about my upcoming utah trip and mikey commission piccy I bought for Jenn under cut )

PS. Also, just because I haven't said anything about this post doesn't mean I'm not upset about it. I just haven't had time to write anything up about it. (I wrote the majority of the above post yesterday)

Here is the writeup about Saturday!! This is the day we all dressed up as sexy ninja turtles. It was made of AWESUHM! :D
Sunday MIGHT be posted tomorrow, but I can't promise, as I am not finished writing it (okay, so I lied when I said I was completely done with my writeup) Hopefully if I don't get it posted tomorrow, I'll get it finished by the end of the weekend (although I don't know, I tend to be notoriously lazy on weekends)
And *MAYBE* I'll have a sexy girl!Mikey icon by then. I just have to remember to ask/beg/cajole [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy into making one for me :D
Finally, as before, I will reward all people who read thru this posting (or actually, anyone who clicks on the lj-cut and goes and looks) with a fun TMNT piccy! XD

Wow! Only TWO MONTHS later! hee hee. I FINALLY finished my detailed NYCC write up! Yay! I'm going to post the days over the remainder of this week (unless Xmas totally distracts me, as it usually does, being that I am a mikey type and christmas has an inordinate amount of shiny things. In which case I will finish posting them next week.)
ALSO, I will reward all people who read thru the postings (or actually, anyone who clicks on the lj-cut and goes and looks) with a fun TMNT piccy! XD

The night before last I had a strange dream that actually MADE SENSE. Raphael and I were folding cloth napkins into various pretty shapes to set at people's places at tables (like I used to do at an old job where I worked as a waitperson at a spendy retirement home) I was trying (unsuccessfully) to show Raph how to do it and he was getting frustrated. Finally he just said "Fuck this. I'm makin' triangles!" . . . okay, it seemed funnier in the dream and when i said it out loud. Now that I wrote it out, it just sounds lame :p blech.

Okay, I don't know if I've said this or not, but Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) and I have decided to move back into my dad's house at the end of July when our lease ends. This apartment has NOT been a very good experience, and it is WAY too expensive. We are going to try and save up some money for a down-payment on a townhome, twinhome, or a condo. There's only really 2 things I will miss about the apartment, 1) off-street parking and 2) not having to shovel in the winter.

BIG NEWS EVERYBODY! For those of you who haven't read this entry on my girlfriend Jenn's LJ, I have big news. I am allowed to read turtlecest again. This is a BIG step for Jennifer. I am very proud of her. We have been talking about it for a long time in counseling, and she basically has told me that she doesn't enjoy turtlecest, but I am allowed to look at it as long as she doesn't have to see it. :)

It makes me VERY happy that she loves me enough to trust me with this privilege. She has told me that she loves me TOO much to have something like different tastes in pornography tear us apart. That makes my heart overflow with joy.

I took my time in posting this entry for 2 reasons:
1) I didn't want ANYONE on my f-list to think Jenn is wishy-washy or ANYTHING bad about her just because she changed her mind. This is COMPLETELY untrue. Jenn and I have gone through a TON of counseling together and a LOT of soul-searching and revelations. 3 BIG things I think have helped bring about this decision in Jenn. a) Jenn's uncle and grandfather APOLOGIZED to her, making incest not seem like such a huge scary thing, b) we talked a LOT about WHY she doesn't like me reading it, and I assured her that those fears were unfounded, and c) when I fucked up recently, she spent a lot of time thinking about what life would be like if we were apart, and consider if t-cest is enough to pull us apart.
2) I didn't want Jenn to feel completely BOUND by this decision in case she changed her mind (that's also the reason I haven't looked at much 'cest yet) I wanted to make sure that if she DID change her mind, she wouldn't feel pressured by any post I had made.

I still feel bad that I was EVER dishonest with Jennifer, and it *WILL* take some time to FULLY earn that trust back. However, I feel as though a GIANT weight has been lifted off both my shoulders and our relationship. I don't feel the need to go and seek out 'cest, but it feels wonderful knowing that if I do go trolling for fic, I don't have to be super-careful not to click on 'cest, and that if I see a 'cest story I want to read, I can read it without repercussions. I love my Jennifer SO much. She is made of awesomesauce and I know that we are meant to be together XD

Jennifer's love and trust make me SO happy. It makes my heart ache because she loves me SO much! *sends love to my Jenn-Jenn*

Wow... 3 entries in 3 days. I know I don't usually do that. However, I started reporting on this drama, I must follow through.

Before I get to the important stuff though. Just a few things. Jenn & I are going to Utah on April 13th thru the 18th. :) Jenn will be getting trigger-point injections before we leave on the 13th. Jenn's parents REALLY want to see her, so they are paying for our airfare out there. It's pretty awesome of them. Just thought I'd note that here. :D

Also, I am going to Sioux City this weekend with my friends to see Avenue Q. It's gonna be fun. Jennifer keeps not wanting to go because she wants to have some time to recover from this stressful week. However, I think she will have fun and also it's not good for her to sit home all alone, so I'm making her come along.

final installment of this drama llama under cut )
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
Ok, whomever thought it was FUNNY to break amazon's book-listing system as some sort of twisted april fools day joke is a jerkface! :p pppphhhttt! I'm TRYING to WORK here *grumps*

In other news, both Jenn and myself got blackberry phones over the weekend! It's pretty awesome! :) My blackberry messenger PIN is: 315ED144 Feel free to add me if you have blackberry messenger.

A thank you for all of you who read my last dramatastic entry under the cut )
micaturtle: (PWEEEAAASSSSEEE?)
I am an asshole. I don't deserve Jenn and she would be completely justified if she decided to leave me...


For those who aren't friends with Jenn, and can't read her f-locked post, explanation under this cut )

Ranting about finances under cut )

In other news, my girlfriend, Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy), gets deep tissue injections into her neck tomorrow morning. Ouch! So I'll be spending the day nursing my little darling. On the up side though, three day weekend! yay! I just hope the injections really help Jenn's pain. So if you have time tomorrow, please spare a thought and a prayer that the injections work well.

Just so everyone knows, the queasiness I felt after my new tattoo has gone away.

Also, under this LJ cut is a quasi-SERIOUS note, just so ya'll are prepared.

Well, I am planning on getting my ninja turtle tattoo very soon. (sometime in the next week or two) Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) is planning on getting hers at the same time. She's getting a Leo, and I'm getting (predictably) a Michaelangelo. :) I want to thank you all for the advice you've offered. We found a guy who seems to do awesome work, and he's even a ninja turtle fan of sorts :) Jenn's been agonizing over exactly how to get her Leo, but I think I'm going to get my mikey to look sorta like this:

Awesome mikey

I got this pic from a japanese ninja turtle site that has since disappeared off the face of the web :p
I will print it out and do a lot of messing around with it first probably. I want it to be PERFECT, and there are a few things I want to change. I should make a list (I like lists):
1) darker skin tone
2) Move the foot so it doesn't look so funky (maybe move it around so the name is in front of him, but the hand is in front of the words somehow, maybe have the body end into the words)
3) make the background colors a little more primary, less sunny
4) open up the other eye

Damn, I keep having second thoughts. Like maybe I should get a more realistic looking Mikey tattoo... But I've seen so many of those and I think I want a more abstract type tattoo. That way i don't have to worry about it looking old if a new "style" of turtles comes out. Also, if I keep it more abstract I can make it smaller. Then maybe I can get another mikey later on if I want something larger and more realistic. hmmm...

GOD! I KEEP WAFFLING!! BAD MICA! *pout* For those of you who have tattoos out there on my f-list (especially those with ninja turtle tattoos) How did you choose exactly what to get tattooed and how and why? Is there anything you've regretted since then? PLEASE SHARE WITH ME! I APPRECIATE IT!
micaturtle: (Oh My)
Ok, Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) and I brought our 2 new kitties, Molly & Murphy, home to our new apartment on Friday. They spent the whole weekend in hiding basically. Finally I got sick of it on Sunday night (after 48 full hours of hiding kittys who were NOT using the litter box, NOR eating) I went into the closet where Molly was hiding and, despite her hissing, started petting her. I know that most people in this entry said that I should just wait them out and they'd come out on their own (advice that was echoed to me by Jenn), but I was sick of waiting! :( I think it went okay, because I just continued petting Molly until she started purring. I don't want to invade the kitty's personal "safe" space (the closet where she's hiding) but that's basically the only place I've seen her! Also, I don't want the kitties to go without pettings and love. I hope that tonight after we've been gone for the whole day, maybe they'll be a little more friendly and show their faces.
Also, last night I woke up to Molly hissing and growling at our bed as we slept. It completely unnerved me. I don't have any idea why she'd be so mad at us. Unless she blames me and Jenn for taking her away from her old home and uprooting her. It's a thought that has greatly disturbed me. I really don't want the kitty to hate me, but I don't know what else to do. *worry worry worry*

In other news:
+ We had spaghetti last night. Vine Zinfandel is MUCH different than White Zinf. It's icky compared to White Zinf. :p Much too dry and it's red.
+ Jenn has to fast tonight for 12 hours so she can have a diabetes screening tomorrow morning at 7AM. No eating after 7PM for her. Poor Jennifer *pets*
+ Next month at work, I've decided to change my bookkeeping system a little so I only record the state the book goes to instead of the full name of the recipient. The full name was important when amazon had different systems, but much has changed and this will eliminate excess typing (hopefully)
+ Fucking STOOPID work computer! Why do you keep freezing randomly!?!? I DON'T HAVE TIME TO REINSTALL WINDOWS! ... argh. Bad technology. No biscuit :p

Well, tonight I am going to be doing a TON of packing! Woot! Jenn & I are moving to our new apartment. Eeps. I must take pics and post them soon :) It's awesome! I also MUST take pics of Jenn's awesome commission she received in the mail yesterday from Michael Dooney :D (as well as the TMNT swag I got at con) HOWEVER, all of that will have to wait, along with finishing and posting my post-comic-con wrap up, because TONIGHT. I. PACK. *insert dramatic music here*

To amuse you in the meantime, here are some scary Leo slippers:

Seriously, they disturb me

Hi all!
I am WAY behind on my f-list, but I just wanted to let you all know that I AM IN NEW YORK CITY!! WOOOT!!! I am a little stressed because I'm low on funds (but thankfully, my dad gave me some moneys, he's so sweet)

Comic Con was beyond awesome, and Jenn and I went to see phantom of the opera live tonight at the majestic. It was the first time I had ever seen it, and it was made of AWESOME. I really enjoyed it! *sends her darling loves and hugs*

We had some awesome photos taken today, including a pic of me kissing my honey in front of a LOVE statue, and Jenn pulling a marilyn Monroe in her awesome green fairy dress. I hope to post them soon :D

Jenn has been awesome this trip. I know it has been hard for her to deal with all the busy-ness and all the constant go-go-go, but she has been a total angel. She's had a few tiny breakdowns, but she's recovered quickly, and has returned to being awesome. I even think she's had quite a bit of fun! :D

Well, I'm off now, but I will post more about my trip later! :D
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
1st of all: TO ALL PEOPLE WHO HAVE MY CELL PHONE NUMBER: I can now accept text messages, thanks to my lovely girlfriend, Jenn([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy). She put me on her plan because she's the sweetest lovely of all time *sends mooshy gooey love feelings to my little girl that make everyone else on my f-list roll their eyes* hee hee ;D

2ndly, I will not be cosplaying as anything but a TMNT lolita this year. I kept trying to finish my venus costume, but I want it to be PERFECT before I wear it, since I know I'll be mocked anyway because of the character choice, I want to at least not be mocked too much because of shoddy construction or wardrobe malfunctions. :( Plus, with the packing I've been doing to move and the NYC trip, it's just too much in one go. I will do it next year I hope. Eeeee.

Finally, I tried to suck into my loli dress wearing tummy slimmers and such, but alas, it was pretty fruitless. I ended up breaking the zipper. I need to go get grommets after work and I will just lace-up the back with orange ribbon. Blech. I hate gaining weight.

I am so freaked out that I'm going to forget to pack something really important... eeps.
