Dear Mr. Tolkien. Thank you for describing every nook and cranny of Middle Earth for us. But you failed to mention that Kili was a hottie.

Only have 24 entries in my friends page, so I thought it was some sort of bug. Apparently ---

"Entries posted more than two weeks ago won't appear on anyone's Friends page, even if they are the most recent entries in that user's journal." - [link]

It's been that way ever since, but of course, my friends page never moved that slow before. :))
 
 
 
 
 
 
Despite how busy I get. Despite all the other new online toys - FB, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest - I find myself remembering the good ol' LJ days.

The simplest way to explain, albeit inaccurate to some, was that LJ was quality over quantity. It was a mix of getting to know people through their lives, what they're into and the communities they're in.

While FB is focused on people's relationship and interaction with one another, it became too much of a well-oiled machine. Interaction became measured by number of likes, shares and comments. I like it there. It's fun. Specially since I've reconnected with old friends I never would have gotten the chance to. But it's not the same.

Twitter is fast. Way fast. It's perfect for me who needs bits of information always. ADD at its finest.

I like pictures. Taking them, looking at them. So I like Instagram.

Tumblr is hilarious. In fact, might be the closest with LJ in terms of growing fandoms and building camaraderie between hobby buddies. But still not the same.

Pinstagram is beautiful. For people who always need inspiration. That's what Pinterest to me is. A big inspiration board.

Is right to expect any of the above, and whatever is coming next to be like LJ? Of course not.

That's why I'm writing this post. That despite all these shiny new things, I find that I am looking for a place to just sit and be quiet. And to me, that is what LJ has become. It's that nice comfy chair in the corner of your bedroom that you love sitting on while listening to music in the dark.

Will I constantly be updating? I highly doubt it. But it's nice to know it's just here.
 
 
 
 
 
 


trying out the LJ mobile app.

 

Not as sophisticated as other publishing apps, but it does seem to get the job done. :)

Just in case the very few active people on the flist who are in the know - I'm super super super interested in getting the Witchblade Iron Fist Shirt Pack when I saw it on Previews (and Top Cow solicits), but I get confused with part of the mechanics.

Now for a limited time, fans can show off both their allegiance to Witchblade and their great fashion sense at a bargain price! This exclusive pack includes both Witchblade Volume 1 and Volume 2 trade paperbacks (a $20 value!) along with a coupon to redeem one of two Iron Fist designer t-shirts (a $35 value!), mailed directly to the fan’s home.

So does this mean, I can't get the shirt through my LCS by ordering through Diamond? And if it's going to be shipped, even all the way to the other side of the world?

Confuzzled! :\

Wheelie fits right in the palm of your hand :)

For the longest time, I couldn't bring myself to pose Wheelie with the rest of the TF gang, just coz the scale bothered me too much. He's even bigger than Bumblebee!

But the new RotF Legends Class Wheelie I got for Christmas is as close to scale as it can get. He still even transforms! :D
 
 
 
 
 
 



HAPPY HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!
2010 is gonna be crazy awesome!


Apparently, last year, I said, " Hopefully this time next year, we will all get to say, 'in your face, 2009!'"

That was an attempt at being optimistic, coming from a particularly difficult 2008. While 2009 did do a lot of butt kicking, I'd like to think we all managed to hold our own, and come out in the end stronger and even in an odd, yet delightful way, more positive.

2010 is here! Full speed ahead, guys!
 
 
 
 
 
 


Ame-Comi Huntress - Quarter

I'm a bit miffed that while I like how Black Canary turned out, she just looks rather ordinary if you put her beside Huntress. :\

Very much pleased at how she turned out! She looked rather ordinary in the solicits, and I think they shot her at the wrong angle.

Now to get enough cash to spring Huntress from the shop! o_0

I told myself that if and when DC Direct puts male versions ofr Ame-Comi, then that's my cue to let go of that line. Nothing against the heroes, of course. Just really really liked the idea of having anime versions of the female cast.

And then what do they do?! The first one they release is Batman. BATMAN!!! I can't resist Bats.

Some might think this version looks a little hokey (come on, most bat-variants are!!!), but I quite like it. Kinda feels like something from Batman: Gotham Knight.

Aaaand then! Just to make things even more annoying, they pair him with a Robin. But not just any Robin. A female Robin!

As few people know, me and female Robins don't really "get along".

So now I will have to get a Batman that will ruin the theme of my collection, and a Female Robin that I don't really want. Booness.

-o-o-o-o-o-

Okay, I've decided. I'm not gonna get female Robin.... Even if it means it's the only one I won't have. I'm not a completist! I'm not!

I remember my first ever rain boots from grandma. They were basic red and my cousin had a blue one. She got them for us because our neighborhood was way too prone to flooding.

Of course, I just took it as an excuse that I can now officially splash around in the rain in my rain boots and transparent rain coat. Something that I never grew out of (much to the dismay of friends who are around to hear me whine about being sick!).

Gone are they days of basic reds and blues! Rain boots now come in colorful and totally adorable designs! *clings to her Plueys*

Bring it on, rain! I'm ready!

Just doing some security checks. Nothing to see here.
 
 
 
 
 
 
If most of my shoes are the shade of brown, but the latest pair I bought are black, should the next one be black or brown?

HELP!!!

The cashier at the grocery didn't give me back my ATM card when I bought Harry's shampoo. Of course I realized this after dinner, when it was closed already.

Can I blame Harry?
