You guys this is amazing:

Bioware has put out a video preview of Star Wars: the Old Republic. They make a point of saying it's a "work in progress," but regardless, I'm pretty impressed. Voice acting and cutscenes in an MMO!

My favorite part, admittedly, was "The smuggler is a classy guy."

In honor of the incredibly sexy variant cover of X-Men: Legacy #255, I have uploaded my 100th LJ icon.

That is all.

You say "Thirty lions taking on an elephant."
[ profile] persephoneflame says "Dude."
[ profile] yang_wenli pictures it. General Chat: Elephant raid looking for more.
You say "They took it down."
[ profile] persephoneflame says "That is insane. Isn't that a crazy big lion pride?"
[ profile] persephoneflame says "Was the elephant sick?"
You say "It was straggling, although whether that means it was sick or just the last to arrive, I dunno. It was a crazy big pride of really hungry lions, though."
You say "They were slinking around a water hole eyeballing elephant calves but couldn't get at any of them."
You say "So they went for a big one."
[ profile] persephoneflame says "So so so crazy"
You say "Seriously insane."
[ profile] persephoneflame says "You know those lions are like, the ballsiest lions ever. They're going to drink on that story forever"
You say "Elephant jogging along with like twenty-nine lionesses on its heels and one clinging to its butt."
[ profile] persephoneflame says "And twelve years from now, their grand-cubs are going to be rolling their eyes, 'She's telling the elephant story AGAIN'"
[ profile] joiedecombat giggles. Yeah.
[ profile] persephoneflame says "We get it, grandma, you were soooooo badass back in the day. Well, we killed a zebra, so that's what's for dinner."

I avoid talking about politics on my LJ, but now that we have reached this point...

I'm excited. A little scared still, too, because it's not as though everything that's been wrong in the USA has just magically been fixed, but I have a lot of hope now, and I really am excited. This is the first time I've ever been able to say that about the results of a Presidential election.

It's a great feeling.

Good job, America.

When you go see Iron Man, stay 'til after the credits. If, you know, you're not one of those people who does that anyhow.

It's snowing.

I did not think it could get much more crackbrained than Weiss Kreuz.

Then I found out about Velvet Under World. AND REALIZED HOW WRONG I WAS.

This usericon has never been more appropriate.

...of course, they put the boxes and software and cords and stuff in an office which is locked and can't, apparently, be unlocked until Monday, which makes all sense ever. So it'll be a few days before I actually get to play with my new toy.

But. New toy! Shiny, shiny Inspiron laptop.

:D :D :D

I have a new TV!

It is a 23" Samsung LCD.

It is very shiny.

I can read subtitles from the couch now!

I have received the most awesome probably-spam-email ever.

To you the ciphered letter has come.

Best regards.

I haven't done anything ill-advised like download or unzip the attachment...

...but oh man do I want to.

Google fails to shed any light on "TotaliCrypt Corp" or the message "To you the ciphered letter has come." Whois knows nothing about "".

I feel like I should write a short story about this or something.

I am officially moved. There are boxes in various stages of "open" and "unpacked" scattered around, but all my furniture is where it should be, I have things hung on the walls, I have food in my fridge and my cabinets, and I have broadband. And cable TV. And no landline. Observe my priorities. :)

I am also footsore, stiff, and achy, and my left arm is sunburned from the drive, so I look kind of silly.

Mom took digital pictures and has promised to email copies to me, so all will be able to see my apartment. It's not fancy, but it's comfy and I like it... although it's weird to realize that this is "home" now, pretty much. I choked up when Mom headed for home. When I came back in, though, I had a DVD rack to assemble, and since this involved screwing lots of pieces together and fitting a lot of other pieces in - and I forgot several pieces and had to unscrew the thing and get them in - I was quickly and thoroughly distracted. (Cable TV helped, what with Superman coming on. Christopher Reeve is the only man in the history of the world who looks good in spandex with the undies-on-the-outside superhero thing going on.)

The icemaker in the freezer keeps making me jump every time it dumps a fresh set of cubes into the tray. I'm not used to these things!


Mmm, broadband.

Moving begins on the 13th, although depending on how everything falls out that may be mostly signing the lease and getting paperwork sorted out and, if I'm lucky, the phone and internet connections set up.

There are boxes everywhere. The stacks of taped and labeled boxes are swallowing the coffee table in the living room, but the pile of stuff to be packed doesn't yet seem appreciably less. Although I have been getting down to odds and ends the past day or two.

At least until my grandmother took me shopping.

My grandmother, bless her heart, decided to single-handedly stock my kitchen, and she has just about succeeded. Aside from perishables and maybe a few things neither of us thought of, I'm set for probably the next month and a half. If not longer. I have never filled a shopping cart that full in my life. I practically have my own grocery store now.

In addition to stocking my kitchen, she also stocked my bathroom and set me up with cleaning supplies from mop to dishwasher liquid and laundry detergent.

I'm still a bit overwhelmed, but this is all stuff I would have needed or wanted at some point fairly early on, and all of it together would have taken a hefty chunk out of the savings that I'm going to need to live on until I start getting paychecks. Which, considering I don't start work until May 31, is going to be a little while. And June's rent will be due on the 1st.

But between my savings and this unexpected windfall, things are looking up.

Plus, Mom said I could have her Crock-Pot. I've been looking up recipes, and I suspect that thing is going to be my best friend.

Now I just have to finish getting packed by Thursday night. Whee.

[ profile] erispope may remember this, since she was the one who originally showed it to me. A while back, there was an eBay listing for, of all things, a dybbuk-haunted wine cabinet. The description attached to the auction listing was long and quite detailed, and it creeped me out a little - granted, we all know I have a low creep threshold. Beyond that, though, true or not, it seemed like it would make a hell of a story. So I saved it.

The description, as given in the auction listing. )
