So yeah... guess who just booked her tickets to London today? *happy dances*

Now to save some pennies so that I can eat and things of that nature while I'm there...
darling_lisa: (With my suitcase)
Ok, so I am going to be missing the next few days... I work tomorrow and then I am flying out to San Diego after that to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] ravensword for the weekend. There will be lots of wandering and taking pictures and flailing over SeaWorld and adventures, but I am pretty sure there won't be much computer time.

I wrote out my drabble for tonight (it was transformation if you are at all interested) long hand while I was doing my laundry downstairs but I need to get to bed so no transcribing. I'll keep writing the others long hand this weekend and then put them all up on Monday.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend *hugs all around*

Today's writing is a bit of a piece that [livejournal.com profile] havenward and I started writing together after Con-Con. Not sure that it will make sense out of the context of the story, but it was basically inspired by a story Christian told at the gig at Dante's to end the convention that struck both of our muses. Hopefully someday we will actually manage to finish and post it. *crossing everything*

Haze, Steve Carlson POV, approx 300 words )

Ok, stole this and am going to see if I can get my muses talking again. The challenge is: using the prompts below, write a drabble (or whatever) a day for the next 30 days. Find someone willing to hit you if you miss a day.

Prompts:
beginning. accusation. restless. snowflake. haze. flame. formal. companion. move. silver. prepared. knowledge. denial. wind. order. thanks. look. summer. transformation. tremble. sunset. mad. thousand. outside. winter. diamond. letters. promise. simple. future.

I started, appropriately enough with Beginning - MCR, approx 200 words )

No idea if I'll keep posting them here or what, but I'm counting on to smack me if I miss a day. So yeah... here goes nothing :)
darling_lisa: (Hair on fire)
Since I'm in a posting kind of mood... I have been to see three movies recently and figured I'd babble about them a little.

First up at bat, Magic Mike... )

Next up is The Amazing Spider-man, which thematically is prolly about as far from Magic Mike on the spectrum as you can get, lol. )

Finally we have Prometheus... )

Ok, so that was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY wordier than I thought it would be. *laughs*
darling_lisa: (MCR Frank heart begins to break)
So this was my first year participating in the Bandom Big Bang as an artist. I have to say it is run totally differently than most big bangs I've been part of, so that took a bit of getting used to, lol.

In any case, I did art for two fics this year. Because BBB has the author post everything (story, art and fanmix) in their own journal, I didn't put up posts for the art here separately. But I still wanted to have it here on my journal... hence this post.

My first piece was for [livejournal.com profile] caarirose's (All I ever wanted was) The right kind of light Here be the art... )

My second piece was for [livejournal.com profile] kopperblaze's Zero percent And again, clicky for the art... )
darling_lisa: (Kane straw hat)
So I've literally been waiting for [livejournal.com profile] caarirose to post this fic for years now, I don't want to give anything away, but it is a gorgeous character study and if you are a fan of her Christian Kane fic at all, you are gonna love it, I promise.

So the Prophet Says

This story especially begged for a mix tape, and Cari and I have talked about it from the beginning. It contains all the songs mentioned in the fic and is just full of the Seattle sound. Hopefully you might find some old favorites or discover some things you hadn't heard before.

I know some of you are probably cocking your head right now and thinking, Christian Kane and the Seattle sound? To you I present the following: Kane had the Alice in Chains cover band, Jar of Flies open for them in Portland, when asked who his influences are Christian has replied multiple times "Alice in Chains and Elton John," and in multiple pictures, Christian can be seen wearing an Alice in Chains shirt. No, he doesn't specifically talk about the other Seattle bands, but it's not a stretch at all to believe he would have listened to and liked them as well.

In any case, I hope you enjoy.

I was won by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] elebridith and [livejournal.com profile] mutedbyfear in the [livejournal.com profile] 1beautifulday auction recently, and both of them wanted headers. Both also wanted Steve/Christian.

Clicky to see their headers )
darling_lisa: (Rawr ILU!)
There will be an update post soonish on the state of Lisa, but I am really just not up to that right now, so instead, you get a concert review :)

Last week I got to go see Fun. perform at the Rialto here in town, and gods, it was prolly the best night of the year so far. )

Finally, have I mentioned that I have a new camera and am totally in love with it? Cause yeah... to give you an idea why, let me show you 2 pictures.

First - cell phone pic from the balcony so you can see how far away from the stage we were:

Huh...

The valley fever spore is extremely small and not visible to the naked eye.  This spore is extremely hardy and very difficult to eradicate.  It ia classified as a Biohazard, Level III, the same as Anthrax, and just as deadly.  It is also considered a bio-terriorist weapon and this coccidioides spore holds two federal laws punishable by death, if caught with the spore(s).

Just a quick update about Skylar.  He has several bruised/cracked ribs but that seems to be the worst of it.  A few weeks of taking it easy and he should be as good as new.  Still hate that we can't be there for him, but just knowing he is gonna be fine helps immensely.  

 Thank you all for the good thoughts/wishes/prayers. <3 <3 <3
darling_lisa: (Default)
So I just got woken up by a call from my best friend.  Skylar was lying under a truck working on it when it fell off the jacks and onto him.  They had to jack the truck back up before they could pull him out and take him to the hospital.  His sergeant called and let us know they are at the hospital waiting on the results from the MRI to see what the damage to his ribs is.  

It's hell knowing that he is in Tennessee and we are stuck here, that we can't go to the hospital to be there for him.  Seriously, this week can just go to hell.  
darling_lisa: (You spin me right round)
Ok, so how is it that I've not gotten into Downton Abbey until just now??? Why didn't anyone tell me how amazing this is?

Literally just marathoned all of Season 1 off Netflix.  Only to realize that I had just missed the airing of Season 2 here in the States on PBS :(  

SAD LISA WAS SAD

BUT!  Commerce to the rescue!  Amazon has all of Season 2 for a whopping $12.99  \o/  Thank god I just got paid on Friday *grin* 

HAPPY LISA IS HAPPY

So yes, as soon as my dinner finishes cooking... I'll be diving straight into Season 2.  

Anyone else on my flist watching this?  Anyone? Bueller?

(Also I have no appropriate icons... hmmm)
