I was going to do a general kind of update post but it might be difficult right now because my mother, who has come to town to visit me for my birthday, likes watching TV with the volume cranked as high as it can possibly go (she is not hard of hearing, this is a habit she picked up from trying to keep herself from falling asleep while watching TV), is watching 60 Minutes with the volume on my TV cranked up as far as it can go (also I despise mainstream "news"). I'm hiding from the noise in my yard and yet the walls of my house are vibrating in such a way that I can still understand most of what is coming from the TV.

My birthday yesterday was not bad. I've certainly had worse. I've yet to get my real birthday present from my parents, but my mother brought me a mirrored disco ball she's been promising me for a while, reportedly scavenged from a neighbor's trash while she was walking her dog, and it's kind of awesome. Also, I got chicken fried steak and lots of alcohol, which are always awesome. On the less awesome side, there was a carrot cake (*vomit*), the ingredients for which I had to buy myself (*lolwut*).

But a couple of my fandom friends from off LJ drew me things, and I love them for it, and everyone who commented on my post yesterday to wish me a happy birthday ♥ ♥ ♥

Which reminds me *awkward segue into very belated botcon report*

I didn't take any pictures and I didn't buy anything so I don't have much to report, but I did want to give some shout-outs to the fun, amazing people I got to meet, and in some cases hang out with a little last month: [livejournal.com profile] spacehussy, [livejournal.com profile] swordage, [livejournal.com profile] primusatemyleg, [livejournal.com profile] justnuts, [livejournal.com profile] peacewish (who was also nice enough to let me hitch a ride back to Austin with her), [livejournal.com profile] amidoh (who isn't even on my f-list but whatever), [livejournal.com profile] pellimusprime (same), [livejournal.com profile] fierceawakening, ProtectobotsFTW, [livejournal.com profile] ebonredseeker, and others. I know I'm missing names but I'm kind of crap with names so it'll just have to do. But everyone was super nice and it was great to get to meet fandom people face to face. It was my first convention, and I really enjoyed it, which is amazing since I didn't *really* know anyone beforehand, aside from chatting sporadically with a few of you. People who can make someone as peripheral as I am, essentially a stranger, who barely can even be said to contribute to the fandom feel kind-of-sort-of like part of a group really are amazing people, and I'm glad to have gotten to meet you. I hope I'll get to run into people again (and other people who weren't able to make it this year) at other Botcons or other conventions, maybe. <3

Found this sign on the ground near a bus stop while I was walking.

and it doesn't say 'will work for booze' )

So, I can't remember if I wrote about this on DW or LJ but my twitter people might remember me mentioning that I found a cleanly severed dog ear in this park by my house a couple of months ago?

Probably not related at all but today, in the same park, I came across a pair of grackle wings that apparently were deliberately removed and posed.

plus photos of a chicken and my cat )

I got this while uploading something to /cm/.

Blurr/Longarm for [livejournal.com profile] spankpig. Longarm gave me way more trouble than I expected, although I do at least like the way his face turned out. I was going to try to draw some kind of background, but fffffff. Maybe later.

This one is G1 Optimus/Soundwave for [personal profile] nkfloofiepoof. She asked for them nuzzling.

I feel like a lazy asshole for getting these out so slowly. Seriously, my goal for tomorrow is to finish more than one of them.

The first of the request art from here and here. This is G1 Megatron/Shockwave for [personal profile] stormbringer986. It's probably NSFW.

Sorry for the lateness, again. I got slammed with school shit these past couple of weeks.

GO SEE

Just want to say thank you to the two people who left me messages on tf_valentine. If I'm right about who left one of them - ♥ Thank you. And I miss talking to you! Absolutely no idea who might have left the other one, but it really makes me happy to know that someone thinks so highly of my art. I appreciate it, whoever you are.

I'm going to try to get a few of my Valentine pictures up today. *crosses fingers and goes back to drawing*

Stealing this meme from [livejournal.com profile] caiusmajor and [livejournal.com profile] spacehussy.

Give me a pairing and I'll tell you my headcanon for
1. What they most commonly do during sex (if applicable)
2. Who has the prettier paintjob
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them
6. The most tragic possible ending for them

Historical geology test on Monday. I've put off buying the textbook, in part because the professor told us she bases her tests mostly on the lectures, in part because I already spent like $400 on textbooks this semester and I didn't feel like dropping another hundred (or more) on this one if I could avoid it.

But it occurred to me that reading the relevant chapters out of any historical geology book before this test might be a good idea, so on a whim, I head to the Half Price Books near my house, where I find a copy of the textbook - not any random textbook but the required text for this specific class - for TEN BUCKS.

I fucking love Half Price Books.

So, just to provide some background, I'm retaking calculus for my current degree program because the credits I have from when I was getting my physics degree are about ten years old and out of state. Trying to get transfer credit for them really wouldn't be worth the hassle. So, it's all material that I've studied before, and worked a lot with before, and even as out of practice as I am, this class is such a cakewalk for me it isn't even funny.

So we have this quiz today. )

Okay guys, I'm drawing robot pron for Valentine's Day. Leave a request on my LJ or DW if you want something. Just give me a character or pairing or whatever and some kind of prompt.

I'm going to try to actually get these ones done on time :O

Trying to decide what to do about transportation to and from Botcon, and I realized that if I take Greyhound instead of Amtrak, I won't have to skip any classes after all. It's just that I've never traveled that way before, but I take trains all the time, so I don't know.

Has anyone taken a trip by Greyhound who can either recommend it or tell me hell no?
