Things able to make me smile seem to be in short supply today, but this did it:

Ceiling cat at the store lives! I hadn’t heard noises for a while, so I was wondering about him/her. Not only did I hear it, but ceiling cat even peeked down to see us. Now if only it would let us get it out of the ceiling, we’d all be happier. Lura tried to bribe it with some ham and cheese, but no luck yet.

Keeping myself busy lately. Noticed that I never did post some of the things I planned on.

…and this post shows me that if I would just


That maybe I wouldn’t have a billionty things in progress with nothing to really show for it.

Have I learned my lesson? Nope. I almost think I work better this way. Or else that’s just one of the nice things I tell myself.

(Warning – this post could not be any less dial up friendly if I tried)

I finished a couple of scrapbook pages )

Realized I never posted pictures of Sharee’s doll )

The start of Rochelle’s doll )

RLBFs oh-so-ugly hat and a couple other things )

*whew* I got tired out just listing them all.
You’d think spending most my time this week home sick I would have gotten more done. Not so much. Starting to actually feel better today, so maybe next week will be different.

She is not only jealous but, in her own words, SUPERLY SO. (feel free to ignore the macaroni salad in progress)

Here is the question. Would a good friend share the new acquired lawn darts, or protect her from them?

Doctor - Now Pond, you don't want to play with that! It's old, dirty, kind of cracked, dangerous, and you don't know where it's been!

Amy - Do you mean the lawn darts or the man standing by them?

Doctor - Yes.

Jack - I'll tell you where I've been...

...and my totebags have Things in them. Lots of things because Sue is fucking awesome (and adorable, can't forget the adorable) and I am spoiled. Wonderfully wonderfully spoiled. Even though I didn't get to go to Comic Con myself *sadface* she's come back with pics, vids, stories and prezzies (did I mention the prezzies?) so that I can pretend I was there. All without the excitement of days on a bus.


In other, much smaller news, I HAVE KNIT AN IMPOSSIBLY TINY BEAR!

He has absolutely nothing to do with the awesomeness/adorableness that is my newly returned Sue, but I couldn't help but show him off.

Okay tiniest bit of explanation for those not following TWNZ. There is a clone of Jack named Yancy. Yancy got a little friendly with the TARDIS and became ‘with coral’ (read: pregnant) Working theory is that the actual TARDIS (read: mommy) kidnapped the coral from him and travelled back in time to give it to Jack to raise in the hub.

Look at that family photo. Least Jack could have done is smile. Sheesh.
And here’s a lovely solo portrait (Who's a cute baby TARDIS? YOU ARE!!)

So in messenger one day I spouted a random … something. From Jack to his grandbaby coral:

Sand and oatmeal. You're lucky little one. You get a smooth surface and a heat lamp. I had grit and the searing sun. Sure I shove you off the desk occasionally, but Grandda's got needs
Ianto always apologizes and dusts you off after. Toughen up.
Couple days later in messenger:

Sue: g'pa, do you haz any new tales?
Me: *thinks*
Seems weird to raise his own grandkid. Grandkid that looks exactly like his own child with her would have looked. Funny thing, genetics. Guess he didn't miss the opportunity after all.
*adjusts desklamp for optimal exposure to the rays*
Sue: aww - does the grandkid have a name?
Me: not yet
Sue: that's shamefull
Me: says the dad
(she is Yancy, after all)
Sue: in yancy's defence, the TARDIS ran off with him/her/it
Now this one I started in my notebook to share, but I never finished it. I actually stopped mid sentence AND CAN’T REMEMBER WHERE I WAS GOING WITH IT. It was two weeks ago, but still.

One sided chats with Grandda (continued)

Don’t deny that polish sorted your growth just there…more than the miracle grow that turned your side yellow. I was trying to help. Really.

Oh stop that pouting, I can feel it from here, whether you’ve got lips or not. You’re half Harkness and we can’t be contained by biology. Every grandfather wants his … Grandson? Granddaughter?

*experimentally picks up coral looking for any new or more pronounced dimpling or … anti-dimples*

Whichever you are, anyone would want you to grow up faster.

You’ve had hundreds of years as it is. When I was a kid we were put out on our own most days as soon as we could walk. Okay bad safety example considering your uncle. Just avoid any time lords looking for a new set of wheels you’ll not be taken away. And if you do see a Timelord? The Doctor? Save us both a lot of trouble. and 1000s years growth time, shell building, travel time with constant sidetrips- Oh I know your mother. No sense of direction coming from that side of the genepool.

But like I was saying, save us the trouble and
And what? WHAT??

Sue's leaving for her trip to ComicCon tomorrow - buses take time you know. Even as she sits here judging my Ianto-ish love of labels, my (apparently) bizzare way of posting here, and my sharpie induced drunk-like haze last night I'm still pretty sure she likes how I improved her luggage. Torchwood NZ branding on one side and the T blown up on the other. Harkness on top, of course.

Giant pictures this way )

I am sooooo glad I was accomplished yesterday. Not feeling so well today (sinus crap ugh), and I’ve not done much of anything all afternoon.
-- Unless you count napping with breaks for mahjongg on facebook? No, I didn’t think so.
Yesterday was a different story. I even made some blueberry muffins from scratch, little tiny ones for [ profile] tardistenantsue to take with her on the bus for her Comic Con trip. Lucky lucky her! For the trip that is, not the muffins. Even if I did make the muffins with extra love. And sifting. I SIFTED FOR YOU SUE – FEEL SPECIAL. Moving on….

Things from our Thursday TV Night
Who episode – Amy’s Choice-

Accidental snack food relevancy again, as Amy was making muffins. If only they had been blueberry.

I may have said something that might possibly have made Sue’s plot bunnies hop around. She may or may not be writing Who fic in which Amy’s parentage is much more exciting :D Not canon, but who cares? It’s awesomeness and I can’t wait for her to finish.

Fun fact for the day – When I wear my glasses I don’t listen as well. Luckily for those around me I rarely wear my glasses, I’d rather wander around unable to focus properly than clean them a billion times a day. At first I thought this hearing to sight ratio thing was just them teasing me, but this is the second day I’ve had them on and once again I’m hearing for crap. It’s like the opposite of a super power.

Holly will wash dishes if you tell her to. She was standing by the sink talking and when told to make herself useful she actually did. I think I should have left the baking dishes for her. If only I had known. I wonder if she does windows…. *makes note to ask her tomorrow*

Other Holly fact – she is upset enough about people not recycling she will pick your garbage. She took 3 soda cans, a water bottle and a couple other random plastics when she left. I know, I know I should recycle more. If only there was still curbside pickup here. Ended up sparking recycling convo where Sue has promised to make her a sign that says Recycle Bitches. Holly is very happy with this, since she apparently says it A LOT when friends are over to her house.

I'm pretty sure I actually had "Things" to say, but my brain is all sick-scatter so the best I could do is this ramble. Ooops.

Today was mostly spent over at [ profile] tardistenantsue's house.

Couple pics this way )

Check out this new little Jack/Liz 10 fic by [ profile] tardistenantsue
Spoilers for The Beast Below.
I love it. I also love the new Doctor, not as much as I love Ten (he is my Doctor after all) but enough that I feel really badly about having doubted him.

Now back to your regularly scheduled post....

Have I finished knitting my Dalek?

Not even close.

Which is why this post should be subtitled
Things I’ve been doing while avoiding Dalek bobbles  )

Enjoy the rest of your trip in Stupid-Texas-That-Steals-My-Favourite-Things-Including-You!

Have an awesome birthday and then hurry the hell back, you hear me? This town is terribly lonely and we will have New Years partying to do.

I have what I hope you will think is a great crafty prezzie (even though half the internet has been forced to see it before you) If you aren't here to open it soon I may explode with attempted secret keeping excitement. And no the prezzie is not a red bull cozie, sorry but I can't knit and you know you'd only be disappointed with red bull.

Anywho - I miss you! Have a great day!


PPS. Yes, I actually do type with this hand.
patelyne: (good times)
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes, you guys are the best!!

I have to point out this, from [ profile] tardistenantsue (because I am the world's most spoiled brat and she totally rocks) - a delicous Ianto brownie.

I have to admit that even though I want to NOM NOM NOM that nose, I only cut pieces from around the sides so his face is still intact :D

ps If you check out Sue's post Candy even gave me a personalized comment porn ficcy bit - I LOVE YOU TOO CANDY!

pps I can't wait to see what the squirrels have been up to [ profile] morgia!

ppps RLBF got me a TARDIS money bank! Woohoo!! Lura saw it and asked if I was going to start bringing home all my tips in change just to make the TARDIS light go off over and over.

Quick rundown of what I’ve been up to now that I’ve gotten over being crazy sick for so long…
After this I’m off to catch up on all the reading I’ve missed. [ profile] amand_r especially - she's been busy with some amazing stuff!! Worst part about being sick was having all the free time but being completely unable to focus.
Also - Not sure if he's around to see this, but... HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICK!

The most random of all posts ever (with pictures!) )
patelyne: (good times)
A Jack Hawkness update I didn’t want to have to make, a shopping trip to Wally world that helped to cheer me up, and random thoughts about packing house.

My journal gets more random by the day )
patelyne: (Default)
Would you like to see what I do with my time while I'm waiting for the eternity it takes to download? If so then just head on over to the journal of [ profile] tardistenantsue where she oh so very helpfully has posted our messenger chat - I also wrote her a note courtesy of Inner!Ianto to try and get her out of play practice. Since she isn't online anymore I'm guessing it didn't work - you will also see 'sort of' spoilers (since she was watching at the time I was trying to not ask for spoilers), so [ profile] morgia you are not allowed to click the clicky until next month (sorry!! but I figure it is better to warn you, yes?)

We are equal parts fun and crazy. Click the clicky and see

Spoilers are here! Turn Back Now If You Don't Want To See!! Morgia I'm Talking To You!!! MY SPOILERY THOUGHTS FROM DAY THREE AHEAD )

One of the lessons I have learned recently is that my scanner is very handy for making the pages postable here. Even if it is too small and tends to cut a little off the edges (so please know that I really don‘t have pictures hanging off the sides), this was much better than cursing at my camera for flashing on my pictures. Seeing as how I got the tiniest bit obsessed in making this last set of pages work, any little bit of crazy I can keep away is a good thing. So….moving ever closer to the end of last year, welcome to November and my birthday page:

So, imagine you’re having yourself a nice little daydream. Everything is happiness and light (or maybe not, but your own version of a happy place anyway…sorry will try to focus in the future) SO, you’re dreaming along tralala and such - then your tricksy subconscious rears its snarky head and your dream takes a turn for the worse. It happens to me, and a bit more often than I care to admit actually. So in an effort to make you feel more normal, I’m sharing a bit of my crazy with you…

What in the hell are you drinking )

“It All Started With an Ill-advised Game of Sardines”
By Patelyne Trillian Alemp

This interview was done in tribute to my good ole days in the newspaper biz. And by that I mean the few years I slummed at the school newspaper writing the odd bit and doing some page publishing. My utter lack of any real writing experience will become quite evident as you read through this interview with up and coming fanfic writer Queen Japonica Sue Fluffernutter about her new series “Christmas With the Jones”. This story is well worth the read and starts right here.
This interview was conducted by text messenger as I didn’t want to drive in the snow to conduct it in person and am unable to talk on the phone and type at the same time.

Here Lies The Best Interview Ever )
