SO ON MY LAST UPDATE I had just gotten my very first super awesome LINE as a flight attendant. (Yeah, the magical schedule was in fact true!) So that was cool. And my life has been INSANE AND AWESOME ever since! Well, not always awesome, sometimes it's just insane, like when I packed for a one day trip on Thursday and didn't get to come home until yesterday while actually managing to LOSE hours, don't ask, it was ridiculous. Here are some of my highlights!

-I had a flight delayed for a swarm of bees. No, really, there was a swarm of bees just hanging out on our right wing, like, HUGE SWARM OF BEES, GUYS. They couldn't get to the plane with the fuel truck or the baggage because of it and had to call out a beekeeper, it was insane.
-I flew a flight with three passengers from Albany to LaGuardia because we'd gotten diverted there and stuck but weren't the only ones and the other crew managed to snag all the people. It was pretty entertaining talking on a PA to...three people.
-I've slept in so many hotels, so many.
-I've found that my favorite game to play while on a trip is to wait a few days and then ask the other FA (provided I haven't worked with them before) how old they think I am. Which usually just comes up because I'll say something like "masters program" or "lived in Ireland for a year" and "spent two years as a wedding consultant..." And slowly they have the moment of realization that maybe I'm not like, 20. It's really freaking funny.
-I WENT TO SDCC AND GOT TO HANG OUT WITH THIS REALLY AWESOME PERSON NAMED [livejournal.com profile] another_myself AND MET MATT & KAREN & ARTHUR & MOFF AND IT WAS BASICALLY THE BEST THING EVER AND WE'RE GOING BAAAAAACK.
-DCON is in a frightfully short period of time away from now. I AM NOT READY. Well, I kinda am, but I KINDA REALLY AM NOT. We'll get there.
-ALSO planning to go to NYCC this year. Which will be 3 cons in like, 3 months. Holy. I swear I could not pull this off if I didn't have flight benefits, I mean, the airfare to SDCC alone would have BROKEN ME DEAD.
-I have this whole new mentality about things I want to go to on account of this. Like, there's an event somewhere or someplace I want to see or something I want to do....it's less "I will never be able to afford it" and more "damnit I need the days off, when is the next bid cycle??" Which is sort of awesome.
-LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT BIDDING, BECAUSE IT IS ALL THE CRAZY. I totally failed at it last month and had to bribe someone to take a trip so I could have my days for DCon. This month, I think I did way better. We'll know soon. But bidding, man, it takes a lot more effort than I thought it would. I had to look through all the possible pairings, I picked out the ones I wanted, I bid for those, then I submitted preferences for like, overnights, report times, and again, days off cause, well, DCon is pesky in spanning TWO DIFFERENT MONTHS.
-I got hopelessly addicted to all things Marvel and Avengers. I made a Peggy Carter costume because I love Cap more than should be considered healthy. I HAVE READ COMIC BOOKS. It's shocking.
-...I bought an iPad because I got tired of having to take my laptop out of my bag at TSA and you can leave a tablet in and now expect my typos to get fixed for me when I go all dyslexic with the letter order. Damn. (I'm on my trusty laptop right now)
-I made the very bad life decision to watch Teen Wolf on a whim. Guys, guys, it's like, awesome. I can't say THE BEST because, well, Firefly, Doctor Who...Kinda hard to beat, BUT IT IS UP THERE, EVEN THOUGH IT'S ON MTV, GUYS. GO WATCH IT. Yes, S1 is a little campy, but S2, just. ALL MY FEELS. STIIIILES. To watch the show is to love Stiles. And you have no idea what you're missing until you too, love Stiles.
-I use my tumblr a lot these days. Go follow me. But, yanno, tell me who you are. I'm themegaloo there too, because I like to keep shit simple.
-Ohhhh I finally broke down and rewatched/caught up on Castle, because Nathan Fillion. Who I saw at SDCC too. Who is awesome and we made cry. On the same day I met Matt & Karen & Arthur & Moff.
-I really like having an apartment. Not living with the parents is very nice.
-There is a Boy and it is Good. But it is long distance but I bid for alllll the overnights near him so it might be Better soon.
-Life is really fun. And I get to work again on Thursday. HOW WEIRD IS THAT, I GET EXCITED ABOUT WORKING. I love being a flight attendant. I would love it even more if our uniforms were like Virgin America's. But I still love it a lot.

IN SHORT: Hi! I'm still alive! I'm just really, really busy!!!

So, [livejournal.com profile] ninepointfivemm is evil for giving me the Costuming Bug, and I've been buying things piece by piece for the past little while, but with all the costumes I WANT TO DO, it's going to take a while. So, this is mostly a mental list for me of what I still need.

COSTUMES GALORE! )

Hi folks, guess what? You get to read just me blathering. Lucky you. Though I guess I won't blame you if you just scroll on past. This is going to prove to be very dorky.

Now, first of, I have discovered the best, and possibly one of the most hilarious ways to pass time. Watching One Piece in German. Now I know that doesn't SOUND terribly amusing, especially if you don't SPEAK German, but to me, it's downright amazing. I can understand about HALF of what they're saying and I'm totally picking up new vocabulary and I think it's pretty much a win-win situation. Plus, it's just downright funny. Falkonaugen Mihawk? Eisburg? The Sogeking themesong? One of the things I've noticed is the German dub is a LOT FARTHER ALONG than the English one. And I encourage anyone to search "deutsch, one piece" on youtube and watch random clips because some of the voices are HILARIOUS.

In other watching news, I finally have actually seen all of Firefly. Not entirely in order YET, as I saw the last four episodes over the Christmas hols and am only just now caught back up to that point from the beginning. I really like it. Which is surprising on one count because I hates Buffy and Angel when I was forced to watch them every day after school and unsurprising on another because they're, well. Space pirates. I scared myself half to death last night though. Reavers are creepy at the best of times, but at 2 am in the living room by yourself? Yeah, downright terrifying and I don't recommend it. BUT I DO RECOMMEND FIREFLY ON THE WHOLE. HIGHLY! It's sort of HILARIOUS.

I'm also still flabbergasted by how much I love writing fic for One Piece. I wrote TWO yesterday. The one properly posted and then a Smoker/Ace fic in the comments for [livejournal.com profile] xredribbon. So fun.

OH! And that meme. The nice one where you pick ten people who make your day a little shinier! I'd paste the instructions but I don't have them handy. Tagged by [livejournal.com profile] takewing though, and it's just such a sweet meme I had to do it. Was gonna post it yesterday but posted fic instead. Whoops. And I could only really think of 8. So hey. No real order. Find that under here! )
