Writer's Block: Born this way  
If you were a cross-breed between two animals, what animals would they be, and why?

I would be a cross between a margay (arboreal cat species) and a kiwi bird. It would be the strangest thing you could ever witness... Like a gryffin, only ridiculous and not fierce at all.


Accomplishment of the day: I split my Archive Of Our Own (AO3) account into pseuds! So that should be useful. I have Dedicate Kiwicrocus for my Emelan stories and Kiwi Stubbly-Punk for my Harry Potter stories. (Please ignore the fanfic in Stubbly-Punk; I haven't started working on HP for AO3 yet.) (You are also entirely welcome to express amusement at the names.)

Left to do: Upload semi-final and final Circlecest stories to Dedicate Kiwicrocus; make it through the last bit of Emelan fanfic; finish Grey's Anatomy uploading (possibly another pseud but probably not since I don't intend to write more GA's); edit/upload Harry Potter fest fic; edit-to-the-bone/upload rest of HP fic; read through all shorter writing in my ridiculous writing folder; consider looking at old novels.

I think I'm going to have a heart attack when I look at how much I've written from March (dissertation) to now.

Today in Random: Mark needs to not touch me when I obviously don't want to be touched. (Here's the clue: "Mark, don't hug me." "Mark, don't hug me." "Mark stop hugging me!") He kissed my shoulder with his ill lips after I put up with his loud eating and completely unrelated stories. For something not completely different: I am a crankyface lately. I think I'm a little sick of people at the moment.

Which brings me to... Later there will be a 'this week in Kiwi' post about my week of travels. Now I need to go to sleep because tomorrow I bring my Dweeb of a brother into town and send him off Stateside. (I packed a bag full of my stuff for him to take home and I still have so much and aslkdjflasdjf *packing flail* but that is for another month.) Then Sailor Moon marathon at 2pm-ish because I am still 14 inside. I'm nearly over my obvious diseased-ness, too! My lip is nearly back to its correct shape and I'm just trying to heal past scabs now. I feel less like I need to be locked away; tomorrow I think I can go out without the face-mask. (:

Also: I am sorry for ignoring you and replacing you with Tumblr, LJ. I don't mean it. It's only indicative of my general attention span lately. I STILL LOVE YOU I PROMISE.

"The one person who really knows me best says I'm like a cat - the kind of cat that you just can't pick up and throw into your lap. No, the kind that doesn't mind being held, only when it's her idea; the kind that feels what she decides to feel when she is good and ready to feel it."

That would be so damn cute *___* Well, I can't help it. Sorry. I'm sure you still can maul something fierce though.

And I just want to say the cat picture is...whoa, the eyes are awesome. Now, if they were purple... ;)

Yes, I can be cute as long as I can still maul something fierce. (; That is when cute is acceptable.

Hahaha yeah, the eyes are why I snagged it. I don't remember much about Tortall, but I certainly remember Faithful a bit! :B You should give it an edit for some purple eyes. C:

Glad you're on the mend. I thought I had my first-ever cold sore, but I think it's just a chapped/cracked kind of thing.

Mark seems to have boundary issues. Be wary of him. I know I don't know him, and perhaps he thinks he's being comforting, but frankly the shoulder kissing bothers me a little. That just seems a bit odd to me.

Glad you don't have your first coldsore - they're pests!

Erg. Mark is very gay, so I'm not worried about that. He just peeves me to no end when he's drunk. (Many evenings he's incredibly drunk.) I have very little patience for drunken antics to begin with, but since he's capable or vexing me when he's sober...it tends to only increase when he's drunk. Usually I'd just snap at him to get the picture and listen to me, but when I'm feeling ill/zapped of energy, I don't tend to have it in me.

(The shoulder kissing seemed odd to me too. But I think it was just because he was very drunk, quite angry at calling him a gay slur and pleased to have another gay in the house.)
