Last night at Mom's place, and we lost power around 2 am. After a little while of power not coming back, I shuffled stuff out to the RV during the lulls in the rain so that Amy could sleep out there where there's power for her CPAP machine. Around 3:30ish, about 5 minutes after getting her all settled, the power came back on, of course.

Still haven't been able to get back to sleep, and it's 6 now.

I have a truly ridiculous amount of squee over the fact that Rainbow Dash defending Fluttershy's honor (in exactly those words) is now canon.

This pretty much sums up my opinion.

Just...either it's short enough to drop on Twitter or it's not stuff I want to write publicly, lately.

Holy crap wow next Monday is going to be a hell of a day.
ysabel: Indeed. (Capt. Amelia skeptical)
I want to write.

I want to draw.

I want to play music.

I feel like my internal spring of energy for such things is flowing as strong as ever, but instead of flowing into this nice deep basin for catching, it's spewing out into a drought-stricken desert and just making mud and maybe a puddle or two.

And to take the analogy way too far, my work is the herd of animals laying in the mud keeping cool and hydrated. So I suppose my spring is being useful but...yeah.

I should really try to write again.

Amy pointed out something interesting yesterday about me. Probably my number one struggle with relationships is that I need to feel needed and useful, but not used, and I am not very good at finding or maintaining that balance myself. I get frustrated if things consistently sit too far in either direction, and it's a boundary I am not good at maintaining with people I am truly close to.

Quick break in the hotel room in Grand Rapids, and what do I do? Connect to the wireless network and check Twitter, LJ and DW...

All told, the trip has had way too many disasters, but they have all eventually been resolved, at least. I would like a less disastery vacation some day, but I suppose I shouldn't complain, as I am at least getting a vacation.

A couple of pictures of the new hair coloring (and recent cut). It came out subtler than I originally intended, but I like it.

I was up at 5:30 this morning writing down a dream that I had so that I can turn it into a story.

I blame this on [livejournal.com profile] murnkay. I'm sure I caught the writing disease from him, and not any of the many other authors I know.

I haven't forgotten my promise to post pictures. I either need to get the ones Joel took or I need to grab the ones I took using Amy's camera and upload them, and I haven't done either yet.

Interim update: three windows shattered, five more with frames broken so they'll have to be replaced even though the glass survived, lots of windowscreens trashed, a window air conditioner trashed, skylights trashed, roof will have to be replaced. We have a $4000 hail deductible on the house. We'll have to figure out whether we want to try to pay the incremental cost of any upgrades we could do as long as we have to replace a bunch of stuff.

The Taurus is totaled, though we'll be buying it back since it's just cosmetic damage. We'll be getting around $4000 for it net, so that pretty much covers our deductible on the house. The Honda took approximately $7500 in damage. The trailer hasn't been evaluated yet but I suspect it's totaled as well.

So we had a close encounter with a tornado a couple of hours ago. Shattered windows but no injuries other than the hailstone that hit Bill in the ear and the little glass shard I stuck myself with cleaning up a bit.

Still no power, posting from my phone. Should have some impressive photos in the morning...

So for a game I'm playing, I need a phrase in Japanese (or, frankly, in bad wannabe Japanese). I'm wanting an overly-polite "Excuse me, Secretkeeper, please hear our prayers," sort of statement. The obvious bits are something like "Gomen nasai Secretkeeper-sama, ?? ?? kudasai," but I'm not sure what the ?? ?? should be.

This is an spell invocation for a cleric of Hello Kitty, so weeabooness is totally in-character, if that matters any.

ETA: Looks like I had anonymous and OpenID comments turned off. Whups. I think it's fixed now.

ETA2: Here's what I have so far, in romaji: Gomennasai Secretkeeper-sama watashitachi no inori o kikite kudasai

ysabel: Mr. Furious (Furious)
Why do I read transfeminist writings? It just ends up pissing me off. Especially when it's good.

Just testing the crossposter. Nothing to see here, these are not the posts you're looking for, move along.
