[livejournal.com profile] gesigewigus , you are MADE of blow and win! My hair has not been this healthy and yayful since it was last henna'd. (I used a Dani-gift of Kholesterol last night). All I need to do now is get the ends trimmed and even, and I'm set for not having to deal with my hair being fucked up anymore. XD

Also: Dani just dyed her hair blue last night. Well, streaks of it. It was a rather hilarious process. Both of us got high on the bleachfumes, and drove Gaarik up the wall, and then I got to listen to entertaining eep noises as she put in the blue, until she came into my bedroom and asked for help with the roots. *giggles* It was GREAT. I loved it. Turned out to be MORE than worth un-hermiting for. XD

And her hair looks fucking AWESOME. There's like..five different shades of blue, and then there's the hennared, and then there's the select few strands of bleach that didn't get dyed blue, so those accent the red AND the blue. It looks fucking AWESOME. Awesome enough that I am very much debating putting something of the same sort in my head. Though I'm thinking a dark purple. Also, I'm not going to be putting chunks on top of my head, that doesn't feel right as "me". *grin* I would very much love to put a couple interestingly placed bits around the lower half of my hairline. Maybe one or chunks on the sides under my ears. That would be spiffy. *grin* The end result will be dark brown, with random purple underneath, with bright copper and teeny streaks of purple on the top. WHEE MULTICOLORED HAIR!!! *amused* If I can do it without bleaching my hair, wonderful, but if I can't....oh well. gesigewigus exposed me to hair cholesterol, so I may be able to pull off healthyish hair, even though my hair fries so goddamned easily. XD

Although, this DOES mean that I'll have to save a bit more before I can buy the hairstuff....I want to do it all at once....

Spoke to my mother today. I'm safe. I got registered for my classes, and as it turns out this time "registered" actually *did* mean "registered", and not "everything else completed". So I have a place to live. Thank gods. The place still rather sucks, but its there.

I left a voicemail with my highschool to have transcripts sent to Lakeland with a note to call me back on my cell. I'm currently looking up what books I need, and I'm going to call and see if its too late in the day to find out what fees and supplies I need for the classes. 

The only annoyance now is with my job, and considering that I am being scheduled about 6 or 10 hours a week when I was told that it would be a minimum of 15, I am not happy and very much considering leaving that job as soon as I can find another. Mom suggested looking at the jobs Lakeland has. Its not a bad idea. I'll be peering around. I would love to be working no less than 20 hours a week.

I'll be getting carmonies within a couple days. I should have a car within a week, if all goes well and smoothly with getting it from Jem's dad. My dad called today asking for my sister, but gave me that information. He finally got the email from me of the contactstuffs for where to send. He said he put in "a little extra money" too, whatever that happens to mean. He was being pissy about the amount that I asked for (which was higher than either of us wanted), but when I told him that I have a $325 doctor bill left over from when I had to get to the hospital when I lived with Alex, as well as a $4700 doctor bill from when I ended up in the ER because of my dratted kidney earlier, he stopped being pissy and was rather worried. So who knows. Thats probably why he's sending more, though I dunno where its coming from and considering his cancer is starting up again I'm fidgity about him doing so.

 And the filters are coming nicely along. With the multitasking and all, its taking me a bit to be able to get them made, and it'll take me longer to get through all my past posts, but. They're coming. Yay organization. 

I'll be seeing the boys shortly, so I need to get off of here and shower and eat something, but all's settling into place. You all rock. I love you to pieces. Thanks again for putting up with my shit and helping me through it. Even though I probably didn't need it, when it comes down to it.

I Am A: True Neutral Human Ranger (1st Level)

Ability Scores:
Strength-13
Dexterity-14
Constitution-13
Intelligence-12
Wisdom-15
Charisma-13

Alignment:
True Neutral A true neutral character does what seems to be a good idea. He doesn't feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos. Most true neutral characters exhibit a lack of conviction or bias rather than a commitment to neutrality. Such a character thinks of good as better than evil after all, he would rather have good neighbors and rulers than evil ones. Still, he's not personally committed to upholding good in any abstract or universal way. Some true neutral characters, on the other hand, commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They see good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. They advocate the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run. True neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you act naturally, without prejudice or compulsion. However, true neutral can be a dangerous alignment because it represents apathy, indifference, and a lack of conviction.

Race:
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Class:
Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.

I got loooots. *purrs* Next three'll be bright silver and gold metallic, and shiny peacock bluegreen beads. *grin* And sometime or another I need to figure out which of the other stone ones a) are good and b) I want.

Squee!

Btw, I fail at this link thing. How the *hell* do I get links in there without getting the MASS AMOUNT OF TEXT that I have now?
nadjarachel_import: (calligraphy)
I got one. A "kit", rather, which came with a pen and both black and sepia inks. Got burgundy and blue too, as well as a leatherbound journal with unruled parchment in it. It's meant to contain the writings that suck for anyone, including me, to read. It'll give me tengwar practice too, so. I'm happy with it, its enjoyable to use and it looks spiffy. I had forgotten how nice it is to write by hand though. *heh* I'll have black or blue or what have you fingertips though, I keep getting ink on them. Oops.

I HAS ONE!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 or I will, in 3 weeks or so. Dad's said its a go for buying it.

YAY!!!

nadjarachel_import: (corsetry/garb)
So. Dress designing. Again. This time, its one Im going to be making relatively soon.

Remember my grey dress that I beaded for assloads of time? Well, I'm redoing that pattern, but I'm altering it. The neckline's going to be lower, though still scooped. The top of the back of the dress will be slightly scooped as well. The sleeves'll come to a slight point over the back of the hand. I'm thinking about adding gores into the sides to make the skirt fuller, if I've enough fabric. I may or may not make an underskirt and hitch up the front of the dress. Dunno yet, depends on what I want to do with the material I have. And I'm planning on boning this one. Heavily, so I can cinch it. Christine, last I saw her, gave me a shelf-bin full of 1/4" spring steel boning. 

This stuff, while not insanely stiff, is strong enough to cinch with. And it just so happens that I have a grand total of 45 bones of one length that I was *not* able to use when I boned my shirt-tanktop-thing that will work perfectly for this. Those of you at Kimmy's party saw it. That one still needs work, the zipper hates me. Regardless, this one's going to be made to cinch in. When I first wore a corset, they sucked me in to about 22", after three tightenings. I could have handled another tightening or two and not felt it. I havent decided to what extent I'm planning on cinching this one, but ...to be sure the seams won't burst it'll take reinforcing the top half of the dress, which, considering my mum has an abundance of muslin, shouldn't be all that hard. I'll simply put two or so layers of that stuff-boning sandwiched between-underneath the dress fabric. 

I've got to play with the pattern pieces a bit. It's going to require melding two different sizes and some line alterations, but that won't be that hard. And just cause I'm this big of a geek (and this bored), I think I'm going to go start that now. If I'm lucky I'll be able to cut out the muslin layers today. As soon as I have a sketch (or a picture, or whathaveyou), I'll put it up. However, for now you're just gonna have to deal with my costumer-language.
nadjarachel_import: (corsetry/garb)
Well, Lei has gotten herself a corset, and I have corset-lust, as well as boredom, so I post, and I gush, because, well, it *is* me, and as we all know I'm a costuming addict. And I ask opinions too, because I'm indecisive, despite the fact that I don't have an uberlarge friends list. haha. And I copy Dani's whathairstyleshouldIuse format, because it works well. And its simple, which none of my posts are. So. (by the way, the names of these corsets *so* amuse me. Haha.)

This one I quite adore, except for the fact that is incredibly underboned. 10. Less than half of the number I prefer to have. So, I dunno.

Simple (completely against how I normally am), but nice, and it has 22 bones. Could work for one of my designs as well.

I absolutely *adore* this one. Only problem, I don't have *that* many places to wear a leather buckled corset. Chamber and game, really. Hmm.

So, yes, there are my considerations. Opinionsopinions?

A Kamikaze Cardinal, that is. 

There is a cardinal, that has been perched on this tree outside my window, the one to the left of my computer, for a long time now. About a year, actually. And he's been divebombing it. Its an average of, oh, every 15 to 60 seconds or so that I hear a random *thump* and a flutter of red wings collecting themselves.

Confused the fuck out of me the first time I saw it. *thump* "*lifts head, confused* Hmm? .... *lowers head*" *thump* "*blinks* wtf?" *thump* "Uh....." *thump* "Alright, wtf is this? *goes to check, sees nothing* ...." *thump* "*happens to look up in time to see flurry of wings* Uh...did that cardinal just fly *into* the window? ....yes...yes it did...wow."

There are *some* bits about living here that amuse me. This is one. Teehee!
nadjarachel_import: (Squeeee)

I feel like a drowned rat. I just walked home through the ginormous storm that's going on. But it's warm rain, so it was fun.

Yep, definitely feeling like a drowned rat. 

*grin* its so fun. I love storms.
