So, with not enough on my plate, I decided to sign up for a fic challenge. Maybe this will help me get into dreamwidth a bit better.

Soooo, lost my job. Good news is I don't have to be on the phone hard selling people and crying in between calls because I need to make a sale or I'm going to get fired, the bad news is... yeah, no job now. And the job market right now is so much fun.

In other news, I realized how little I actually use this journal and started feeling guilty for having taken up an invite code. I mean, until today I didn't even have a userpic. I was going to go with my default tin-looking heart thing, but in honor of the release of Portal 2 I decided to go with Chell.

Hero? Victim? Lab Rat? Compulsory Vonlenteer? Rebel? Savior? Bad Test Subject? Heck, I'm just a girl with an ASHPD, trying to stay alive.

SPEAKING OF PORTAL 2, I am really, really digging this game. I loved the first one and this is... just what a sequel needs to be. You know, in the beginning I wasn't sure how I felt about Wheatley, the machine chauvinist side-kick character with dubious hacking skills, (featured in the video below) but in the end I bonded with him pretty hardcore. I was pretty surprised. I guess I didn't realize how isolating and lonely the first game was (and was meant to be) until there was actually another character there going through it with me. I mean, the first game was so hostile and barren that people bonded with an inannimate objects. (There is apparently some real psychology behind this.)

So anyway, having unexpectedly become quite fond of Wheately made certain parts of the game pretty heartwrenching. :( Emotional Investment, Portal is good at this.



Oh, and was it good to see GLaDOS again! I knew you were still alive, you passive agressive bitch. It's good to see you too.

I want a prequel where we can play as her... you know, for science.

Anyway, not done with the game yet. (I'm actually at a total standstill. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious but I just can't see it.) Aaaaaaah I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

Gods above, my job sucks so bad I think I would rather be prostituting.

In other news, I've been hanging about on the Tron Kink Meme, generally lurking (Although I have filled like, two things and dropped a prompt or two.) and realized that I'd be reading through prompts and like, a few days later get an idea for a fill... and then be unable to find the prompt again.

The thing about the Tron Kink Meme is that it was abandoned by the original Mod and picked up by a fan who wanted to keep it alive. Likewise, the Delicious account that was originally tracking the meme was abandoned and two other people decided to make another one to take it's place. But the second one hasn't really caught up yet, and it hasn't been updated in almost a month.

So I started thinking... well, why don't I make one?

Which is probably how most os my bad ideas start out. lol. But here I am trying to even catch up with the first one, (My goodness there are a lot of prompts on this meme!) and I think I've only just gotten over the Delicious learning curve. Although I did find out, 150 bookmarks in, that I had neglected to tag one of the entries as "Round1" and had no idea how to figure out which one was missing the tag! GAHHH!

Now watch, the moment I'm caught up the other account will start updating!

When I first found out I was having a baby, I had no gender preference at all. If anything, I thought a boy would be easier. Statistically speaking, they are cheaper to raise. I'd raised a little boy before, in fact, so the process would be pretty familiar to me.

Then my dear, sweet, well meaning husband convinced me how wonderful it would be to have a girl.

Letting go of Lyris )

And maybe that is Lyris's lasting gift to me. To remind me what my more rational self had known all along: that it's only when we let go of who we want our children to be, that we're open to discovering who they really are. We owe them that.

Wow, that first trimester will knock you on your butt, let me tell you. I actually lost weight. (Is that, like, normal?)

Anyway, to test out that spiffy new embedding feature we're supposed to have, here is the only time Janeway and I have ever agreed about anything.
