Ahahahahaha yaaaaaay llamas!!

...and now I feel the sudden urge to watch "The Emperor's New Groove" for some strange reason... XD

Thanks to those who've sent me llamas! It feels me with glee!

So now for updates - still unemployed after being laid off the first week of February *sadface* It still totally sucks. If anyone knows of anyone hiring in Western NY, let me know! I have also spent the last month quite literally renovating my bedroom - two walls had to be torn down to the studs, the insulation and drywall needed to be replaced and there were HOLES in my floor through which you could see our basement!! DX Not cool. But holes are now covered, walls are painted and NEW CARPET arrives on Tuesday. *JOY* It shall be glorious and NOT full of holes and MOLD.

Ummm... also planning on attending Toracon at the end of the month at RIT - anyone else planning on going? Let me know yo! I am tentatively signed up to actually compete in the cosplay contest, but we'll see how that goes. >__> Especially since I won't have my usual partner-in-crime for moral support. Hopefully it won't be ZOMGHOT like it was the last time I competed...

Aaaand that's it for now. I am a lazy lazy tired and sore thing tonight.

Oh yes! HAPPY EASTER/OSTARA!!

Argh, :iconbecoafamu: totally tagged me for this - brat! Buuuut since I'm bored, I'll do it anyway!

1. Post these rules.
2. Each tagged person must post 10 things about themselves on their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 10 people and post their icons on the same journal.
4. Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
5. No tag-backs.


1. I am currently unemployed and I absolutely hate it. I hate having to deal with applying for unemployment, I hate worrying and stressing about paying my bills, and I hate feeling like a drain on society.

2. Newest plan of awesomeness includes finally applying my lazy butt to grad school. WOO more debt! But hopefully it'll be worth it and I'll get to break the brains of future generations of English majors!!

3.  I adore cosplay! I've always loved making and wearing costumes, and to find an outlet for that love as an adult is quite literally one of the greatest things ever! ...now if only I could actually convince myself to compete with some of my outfits...

4.  Stage fright - I totally have it. Yes, I did solo fest and all-county chorus in middle-school and high school. Yes, I've performed in bands/ensembles for over 14 years. I still hate going on stage with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

5.  Oh swearing... it's a horrible habit of mine. And often incorporates slang and swear words from other languages/cultures. Much to the disgruntlement of my family and pets. Woops. ;)

6.  As far as politics go, I'm pretty damn liberal, but I hate extremists. I don't care what end of the spectrum you're at - if you just blindly follow a given doctrine and are unwilling to at least listen or research to anything else, that makes you a closed-minded idiot as far as I'm concerned.

7.  Stupid people annoy the ever-loving tar out of me. I don't mean those with legit learning disabilities - I'm talking about people who act and say stupid things because they're lazy and unwilling to use common sense. If the sign says "Right Turn Only" then don't try to make a fraggin' left-hand turn!! Stop being stupid and use your damn brain!

8.  I identify as pagan not Wicca. Wicca = Pagan, but Pagan =/= Wicca. Learn the difference people. It gets rather annoying having to constantly tell people "no, I am NOT Wicca. I don't do the whole 'coven' and set rules and rituals thing." I'm more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants sort of girl!

9.  I fear that my artistic muse, as far as drawing/painting goes, has permanently/indefinitely left me. Consequently, this causes me quite a bit of stress and a tendency to be a bit bitchy when people harp on it.

10.  I'm kind of a bit of a grammar Nazi at times. I don't mind a lot of the internet slang or lol-cat speak - hell, I'm guilty of using both myself. What does drive me bonkers is people not using the correct to/too, you're/your, there/their/they're and other such things. STOP BEING LAZY and learn the damn language. Especially if it's your native tongue! No excuse. I don't care if you're 15 or 50, learn how to write properly, especially if you're writing fanfiction! If you're unsure, get a beta who does know correct English! It drives me even MORE bonkers when I find these sort of mistakes when the author claims to have a beta - if that stuff is getting past your beta, then you need a new beta! Argh. Maaaajor pet peeve here. And an inspiration as to why I would love to become an editor, just so I can red-pen the HELL out of cruddy manuscripts (i.e. - Tw*tlight would never have been published if I was the editor on that piece of drivel!).

Hoookay, enough ranting! And now for the tagging!

:iconebonykain: :iconfaeriegoddmother: :iconconniefirechick: :iconnathanialroyale: :iconathena5897: and anyone else who's bored and wants to rant-I mean do this!
  • Listening to: The Whole Thing - Big Blue Ball
  • Reading: Pride and Prejudice
  • Watching: the Olympics
  • Playing: Professor Layton
  • Eating: nada
  • Drinking: Peach apricot tea
So it's been a while since I updated this, eh? Also needed to get the Secret Santa thingie off the top - it's long since done and over with!

Anyroad, RL has been insane and full of drama - don't want to go into details but let's just say that some people showed their true colors and it kind of sucked hardcore. In other news, I'm looking for a new job! Meh, temping sucks because you know that eventually it's going to end... but at least the agency you're signed with is supposed to help you find a new job. *fingers crossed*

Oh yes! I'm also trying to plan my convention schedule for the year, but it's proving to be rather difficult between not knowing if/where I'll be working in the next few weeks plus the fact that my partner in crime is now 3k miles away. >_> So far I have tentatively made plans for Toracon (Rochester, NY) in April - based on who I can loop into going with me, aside from my bro who will spend all his time at showings. Also in the plans is Connecticon (Hartford, CT) in July - this is most likely a definite, since it's not only an awesome con, but serves as a yearly reunion for myself and some college buddies (plus more recent additions!!) - it's super fun times.

Now onto the movie meme/quiz thingie! YAY.

123 out of 239 -- not too shabby! Obviously I'm not big on slasher/gore flicks or stupid comedies... I like comedies, just not the ones geared towards a really immature audience.

So in an attempt to revive myself ala the phoenix, I signed up for :icontheisraelproject107:'s Secret Santa. I am indeed alive, just not so active in the creative sectors lately. >_>

On that note... the Secret Santa!

Dear Secret Santa,

I'm a pretty easy to please person, but KH is my OTL - within that fandom, my OTP is Zemyx/Dexion HOWEVER YOU WANT IT. I like it angsty, cracky, fluffy or even full of delicious snark and random, or even any combination thereof! Zexion is by far my favourite characters (I jokingly claim him as my male me), but I <3 Vexen, Lexaeus, Demyx hardcore. I also have a soft spot for Xigbar and Xaldin being utterly random and possibly randy as rabbits. XD

As for FF, I adore Leon/Cloud, but I wouldn't turn down anything involving Quistis or Cissnei as far as the ladies go. ^__~

Oh yes, any silly/random/perverse/obscure music or literary references are always welcome!

Good luck and I will most likely squee with delight over anything gifted!! :dance:

So not much has happened since the last journal aside from the whole Toracon thing - much fun was had although the weather tried to melt :iconebonykain: and I to death. I have to say though, I was very disappointed with their organization this year - normally the Anime Club kids do a better job but they kinda fell short. Very sad.

Connecticon is coming up in about 1.5 months - end of July - I'm hella looking forward to it! I get to see my :iconebonykain: and also get to spend some time away from home!

Speaking of which, plans are in the works to finally move out of the parentals' house - all the way to Seattle, WA! *fingers crossed* Right now, end of April '10 is the tentative date, but it depends on if I can secure a job while still here on the East coast, how much I can save up, if I can acquire a vehicle that will a) survive the cross-country drive and b) fit my dog, cat and CRAP. But things are looking somewhat hopeful.

And now for this nifty quiz/meme thing I gangked from :iconwillowanderer:

Gearing up for Con Season

Sat Mar 28, 2009, 8:32 AM
Sad empty header is sad. It's an EMO header.

Yes kids, it's that time of the year again! Convention season! This year I'll only be going to two cons due to the combination of money and time/work. Doing two back to back last year just about killed me and :iconebonykain: ... we learned our lesson that doing that is a Bad Idea.

So what cons this year?

ToraCon in Rochester, NY on 25 April -- it's a small one-day con held by the RIT Anime Club but it's a lot of fun, local and cheap.

ConnectiCon in Hartford, CT 31 July - 2 August -- my all-time fav con! It's full of awesome sci-fi, fantasy, comic books, anime, games and webcomics! Anyone who can go totally should!

As for who I'll be taking, I'm definitely taking Zexion to CTcon, along with Robin Sena. If I can get the stuff together for it, I might make Cissnei to go with :iconebonykain:'s Reno, which shouldn't be too hard. I've ordered a new wig for revamping Zexion and I'm hoping to order a compression shirt - just gotta decide which one to get from Underworks. ^__^ Fun times are ahead! Hopefully I'll actually get pictures of my own outfits this year! ;)

I been tagged!

Fri Mar 27, 2009, 5:37 PM
Sad empty header is sad. It's an EMO header.

Each tagged person must post 8 things about their self on their journal.
At the end, you have to choose and tag at least 8 people and post their icons on the same journal.
Go to their pages and send a message saying you tagged them.
No tag-backs.

1. I absolutely adore cosplaying! Designing an outfit, wearing it, everything!
2. I utterly loathe having my photo taken. I am completely unphotogenic.
3. I have a bit of an obsession with music - I have over 20G of music on my computer and I am constantly on the search for more.
4. Kingdom Hearts is my anti-drug and makes me happy - I love the games & manga, and I love discussing theories about backstory and the characters.
5. Throughout elementary, high school and college I played alto sax, sitting in first chair for a large portion of that time. I really miss playing now that I've been out of college for 3 years.
6. Role-playing is a fantastically fun hobby of mine. I started out with DnD and have since moved on to roleplaying online in the Kingdom Hearts fandom.
7. I find co-writing to be an incredibly fun experience - it's great having someone else to bounce ideas off from and another mind to prod when your personal muses are misbehaving.
8. Someday I would love to have my stories published. This, of course, involves actually finishing said stories. >_O

Cute Overload

Fri Mar 27, 2009, 11:18 AM
Sad empty header is sad. It's an EMO header.

So what else is there to do at work on a Friday afternoon when you've already eaten lunch and have processed as many requisition as possible? Why, browse the interwebs for the most ridiculous and random things possible! I found Cute Overload a couple weeks ago, and check in every few days to see if there's anything new and entertaining. Some gems I found today:

www.cuteoverload.com/2009/03/x… Insane sheep herding! They used freakin' LED lights ON THE SHEEP. Kinda sweet actually.

www.cuteoverload.com/2009/03/t… I am not entirely certain as to why the kitteh feels the need to lick the hell out of the fennec fox... but it's cute. And I love fennec foxes... so there ya go!

www.cuteoverload.com/2009/03/m… I have been saying for years that someone should breed mini-cows because they would make great pets! (Hey, if people can have pet pigs, I can have pet cows! Cows are cute! STFU!)

....obviously, I should not be left to my own devices for long periods of time. >_O

Searching for Lexaeus

Thu Dec 11, 2008, 12:35 PM
Sad empty header is sad. It's an EMO header.

So :iconebonykain: and I were chatting the other day, as we do almost daily, and got onto the topic of conventioning. We decided that it would be wicked to have a full Castle Oblivion basement crew, as the two of us cosplay Vexen and Zexion. Thus, the idea of born of searching for a Lexaeus to complete us. (har har "he completes us" har har)

And so, here's our "advertisement" for a Lexaeus! To qualify, you must be:

- willing/able to attend Connecticon '09 (Hartford, CT)
- tall (obviously!)
- good-natured & patient (this from :iconebonykain:)
- give out hugs on demand
- not afraid of yaoi-ing it up with us (we're willing to negotiate this -- friendship/brotherly stuff is okay too)
- cuddly! (see "hugs on demand")

A willingness/ability to attend Toracon '09 (Rochester, NY) and/or Bakuretsucon '09 would also be awesome, but is far from necessary. In regards to CTcon, :iconebonykain: and I usually reserve a room in the hotel attached to the convention center, and we'd be willing to save a spot for our Lexy if he/she needs a room. We just ask that you bathe. ;)

Oh! Aeleus/Apprentice cosplay would also be super awesome! I have an Aeleus name-tag that :iconebonykain: originally made for my bro, but he's not nearly into KH enough to run amok with us in that. So yeah... I can provide that too!

Yep, that's it, until I think of anything else! ^__^

Holiday Wishes

Fri Dec 5, 2008, 9:31 AM
Sad empty header is sad.

Founds this on :iconwillowanderer: and :iconryuchan:'s journals and thought it looked fun!

Step One - Make a post to your Journal. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes.

The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.")

The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want. - If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. - Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your Journal, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two - Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list.

And now here's the important part: - If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true.
Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy.

Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call. There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.


1) To crawl out of the pit of debt college put me in. Seriously. It sucks hardcore.

2) Well-written, plot-tastic Zemyx. Because it's my OTP and there hasn't been nearly enough good Zemyx lately. It can be as Nobodies, their Somebodies, AU... I don't care, so long as it has a good plot and is well-written.

3) A new computer (laptop)... my poor ol' desktop is pushing 7 years old and is really showing her age.

4) Any fanart/fic of my fav KH pairings!

5) The motivation/inspiration to actually finish some of my original fiction.

6) A GOOD permanent job is benefits. Oooh I weep for health insurance.

7) A new Zexion wig - I love the one I have, it's very comfy, but the colour isn't quite right nor is the length of the bangs.

8) Leather/pleather Org coat - I love love LOVE the moleskin coat my mum and I made, it's very comfy and definitely breaths better in the summer. But I want the waterproof leather/pleather for cold/wet weather photoshoots.

9) I want the carpal tunnel/arthritis in my left wrist to go the fuck away. It's putting a serious crimp on my ability to write/draw/knit/sew. Not cool.

10) A home of our own for myself and :iconebonykain: ...preferably in Seattle. Because Seattle is the shiznit.


In other news, :iconebonykain: is coming out to visit the day after Christmas and we will be going to see Transiberian Orchestra with my folks, and also going up to Niagara Falls with my lil' bro. Hopefully we can get some good Even/Ienzo and/or Vexen/Zexion pictures while she's here, since we failed to do so over the summer. Obviously we are brilliant. :D But either way, we'll have lots of fun and will most likely make fools of ourselves.

We'll also hopefully work on planning our conventions for '09, making travel/hotel plans and all that jazz. And the possibility of new cosplay is in the air. We recently discovered Princess Princess and the idea of doing a Victor Victoria cosplay amuses us like crazy.

On the top of KH Re: CoM... from the vids I've seen on youtube, I am pretty damn happy with the voices. Larxene's is absolutely perfect, Marluxia (Marloooosha lol) is quite delicious, Axel's is fun (if a bit different from KHII, even though it's the same VA), Vexen's is much better than I was expecting and the random voice cracks are hilarious, Lexaeus' is fittingly deep, and Zexion's is well... I rather like it. Although I keep giggling at the fact that Zexion now = Tuxedo Mask. Mmm, Sailor Moon... fond memories there, folks! But yes, all in all? Quite pleased, and I hope to get my hands on a copy of it sometime soon.

Alright... enough time from work has been wasted, so toodles kids! *wanders off*

What A Kiss Means

Wed Nov 12, 2008, 6:54 AM
Sad empty header is sad.

+Kiss on the stomach = "I'm ready"
+Kiss on the forehead = "I hope we're together forever"
+Kiss on the ear = "You're my everything"
+Kiss on the cheek = "We're friends"
+Kiss on the hand = "I adore you"
+Kiss on the neck = "we belong together"
+Kiss on the shoulder = "I want you"
+Kiss on the lips = "I love you"

What the gesture means...
+Holding hands = "We definitely love each other"
+Slap on the butt = "That's mine"
+Holding on tight = "I don't want to let go"
+Looking into each other's eyes = "I just plain love you"
+Playing with hair = "Tell me you love me"
+Arms around the waist = "I love you too much to let go"
+Laughing while kissing = "I am completely comfortable with you"
+Picking someone up off their feet = "That they love them fully and would do anything for them"

--Advice--
+Don't ask for a kiss, take one
+If you were thinking about someone while reading this, you're definitely in love.

--Requirements--
+Post this again after reading!

If you LIKE, LOVE, or MISS someone right now and can't get them out of your head, then re-post this within one minute and whoever you are missing will surprise you.

Thought this was cute and since I'm missing my beloved :iconebonykain: like crazy as usual, I thought I'd spread the love. ^__^

2009 Conventions

Fri Oct 3, 2008, 12:49 PM
Sad empty header is sad.

Copied from y!gal because I am a lazy thing. Also note: totally bored and killing time at work.

So :iconebonykain: and I are trying to figure out what cons to attend in '09. Thus far, the only definite is Connecticon in early August, but we're a bit torn about what to do for anything else. After doing two cons back to back this past summer, we've since learned that is a [i]very[/i] bad idea... so we won't be doing that again. Possibilities for cons are:

Anime North (22-24 May) -- I'm pushing for this one since I haven't been to Toronto in a long time, and we could chill out in Niagara Falls on the way up/back and have fun times.

Anime Boston (22-24 May) -- would also be wicked because we have friends who live in/just outside of Boston, and I haven't gone there since '96.

Ani-Aikousha-Con (13-15 Feb) -- we were sorta considering this, since it's about 30mins from where I live, but the website is very poorly designed and the entire thing seems a little iffy, so this is most likely out

ToraCon (25 April) -- we've attended this the last few years since it's at RIT where my brother is currently attending college. It's fun, but rather small with not a whole lot to do.

Any thoughts? Input? Especially from anyone who has attended/will be attending any of these or others? Keep in mind, the two of us are from CT & Western NY, so we're pretty much limited to cons in the NE. Also -- we are totally all for room shares to cut down on hotel costs, so let us know about that too!

Sad empty header is sad.

*giggle*snort* This damn thing amuses me to no end, so I decided to finally give it a whirl after :icontheisraelproject107: posted it in her journal. Curse you Lauren and giving me more ways to waste time!

Dear Roomie:

I don't really know how to tell you this, but our horoscope don't match. I think I realized it last year in your closet and I saw you carve your initials into my avocado plant. I'm sure you're frostbitten enough to understand how awful I've felt. I'm returning the couch cushions to you, but I'll keep your collection of butterflies as a memory. You should also know that I never openly mocked a passionate interest for mice .

With ease,
-Sky-

Taggage!
:iconebonykain: of course, and anyone else who wants to do this silly silly thing!

100 Facts? Yes?

Fri Sep 19, 2008, 9:24 AM


Yoinked from :icontheisraelproject107: because I feel like avoiding doing work at work. Woot. Go me.

001. Real name?
Sarah ... I am not always overly fond of it. Too damn common 'round where I live, if you ask me.

002. Nickname?
Sky, Skylar, roomie (only :iconebonykain: calls me this)

003. Status?
Single and fancy free!

004. Zodiac sign?
Aquarius! Why yes, I am rather mad, and I don't suffer from it, I enjoy every damn minute of it!

005. Male or female?
Certain anatomical aspects point to female. ;)

006. Elementary?
It's elementary my dear Watson.

007. Middle School?
Bahahahaa no. My school was k-12 folks, k-6 was elementary, 7-12 was Jr/Sr High school.

008. High School?
Graduated 7th in my class! XD

009. Smart?
I like to think so! After all, I was advanced a year in math/science in high school and graduated cum laude from college!

010. Hair color?
Red to strawberry blond, depending on the season.

011. Long or short?
Relatively long... and rather frizzy lately. I think I need a trim to bring back the NORMAL curls. >_>

012. Loud or Quiet?
*shrugs* Depends on any given day, my mood, the crowd I'm with.

013. Sweats or Jeans?
Jeans, hells yea!

014. Phone or Camera?
Uhm... phone for communication, camera for recording shite.

015. Health freak?
Ahaahha not so much. Well sorta. It depends. I don't like eating stuff that has a crap ton of preservatives and extra stuff in it that's not really necessary. And I try to eat healthy.

016. Drink or Smoke?
I drink socially, and hate smoking. It killed my grandfather and had done horrible shite to my mum's health.

017. Do you have a crush on someone?
Yea no.

018. Eat or Drink?
Jasmine white tea and I am currently snacking on a banana. MMmmm delicious banana.

019. Piercings?
3 that I use - one in each ear lobe, one in my left ear's upper cartiledge.

020. Tattoos?
Been debating it for a few years now, but I don't really have a design I like well enough to have it permanently on my body.

FIRSTS:
023. First piercing?
Ears, age 5ish I think.

024. First best friend
Carly. She lived down the road from me and we rode the same bus. Even ended up carpooling to school our senior year. It was good times. Makes me a little sad that we've fallen out of touch over the years.

025. First award?
Um... I think it mighta been for spelling or some such in elementary school.

026. First crush?
. . . dunno?

027. First pet?
A little mutt named Pepper who disappeared a few months after I got her. After that, my beloved basset hound Heidi. She was totally my best friend and I was devastated when she died from cancer when I was in 7th grade.

028. First big vacation?
That I really remember? Niagara Falls/Marine Land when I was in about 2nd grade. I know I went camping with my grandparents before my grandfather died, but I really don't remember that very much.

030. First big birthday?
Gods, I think it was 1st grade? Had a party... some of the parents got stuck trying to get out of my driveway. Winter birthdays SUCK. Consequently, I never do much for my bday. I had MIDTERMS when I turned 21, and therefore NO BOOZE.

CURRENTLY:
049. Eating?
Just finished mah banana. :D

050. Drinking?
Jasmine white tea.

052. I'm about to?
Actually get some work done

053. Listening to?
Tapping of keys, the crazy printer/fax/copier making weird noises and "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden on my iPod. *loves all over iPod*

054. Plans for today?
Getting some work done at some point... working on the EPIC with :iconebonykain:, probably walk my dogs when I get home.

055. Waiting for?
my rocket to come! ;)

YOUR FUTURE:
058. Want kids?
Hells NO. If I could get myself spayed, sell my uterus to pay off my student loans, I totally WOULD.

059. Want to get married?
Not particularly, no.

060. Careers in mind?
Well, I once wanted to be an editor... and lately I've been thinking of working towards my Masters/Doctorate in English Literature so I can be a professor and torment future generations of English majors... or maybe a technical writer. At this point, I just want a permanent job that pays well with benefits. Like health insurance. That would be amazing.

WHICH IS BETTER WITH GIRL/BOY?
068. Lips or eyes?
Yes. But eyes, really. And sometimes nose. Like the guy on NUMB3RS... he has the most lovely nose. XD

070. Shorter or taller?
A bit taller, but not crazy tall. Tall people freak me out.

072. Romantic or spontaneous?
Yes. XD

073. Nice stomach or nice arms?
How about a bit of both? Ideally, they should be proportionate. Nicely muscled arms are delicious.

074. Sensitive or loud?
Sensitive, but not overly so. (Not like my friend Richard who apologizes for EVERYTHING. I shit you not. I love 'im though.)

075. Hook-up or relationship?
Relationship.

077. Trouble maker or hesitant?
Er... well, if we're BOTH hesitant, NOTHING will ever happen. But if they're a trouble maker... eyah, that'll only end badly.

HAVE YOU EVER:
080. Lost glasses/contacts?
Momentarily miss-placed my glasses, but never actually lost mine. My mum's dog chew her glasses up the other day though. >_>

081. Ran away from home?
Yes. I lost count how many times I did that when I was little. XD Got down the road multiple times with my bookbag full of clothes, heading for the woods in back of the fields. Hung for a few hours before I finally got hungry.

084. Broken someones heart?
Not that I now of? I certainly hope not.

085. Been arrested?
No sir. Got a speeding ticket once though.

087. Cried when someone died?
Yeah, that's generally what happens.

DO YOU BELIEVE:
089. Yourself?
Eh?

090. Miracles?
MAGICAL PIXIES. XD

091. Love at first sight?
Not so much so, no.

092. Heaven?
Sorta? I believe there's some sort of afterlife, as it were, and definitely in reincarnation.

093. Santa Claus?
The spirit of Santa, yes... an actual person? Not really. I mean, I know the story is based on a real saint, but that's completely different.

094. Sex on the first date?
*snort* No.

095. Kiss on the first date?

Meh, I suppose so.

ANSWER TRUTHFULLY:
097. Is there one person you want to be with right now?
:iconebonykain: my beloved roomie. We wanna run away to Seattle.

098. Are you seriously happy with where you are in life?
Not particularly. I'd like to have a steady, job that has benefits and security... my own place. My student loans no longer eating my soul.

099. Do you believe in God?
I think there's a higher power, that there is a balance of masculine/feminine, light/dark, etc. I call upon the Goddess far more than I do upon God. It's been the cause of something of a rift between some of my extended family, who don't understand that I'm pagan.

100. Post as 100 truths and tag~

I tag: :iconebonykain: and anyone else who wants to do this!

Dragonses! Please help them hatch and grow!
