Okay, y'all, it's like this: XIII-3 is apparently too stressful for me to play without a game buddy. I don't know WHY I am incapable of dealing with it solo, but I am, so until I can find someone to actually sit with or who wants to hang out in a voice chat with me, I'm just giving up on it. I LET YOU GO, GUILT.

What this is leading up to is that, you remember that PS4 I bought back in, you know, November? It's finally up and running, and I watched the Brotherhood shorts and Kingsglaive (I could not stop seeing MCU's Pepper Potts in place of Lunafreya oh my god what), and I've knocked the FFXV demo out of the way, gimme dat atomic squirrel.

Carbuncle was actually not atomic in the demo. Very cute, but not glowing. CONFLICTED FEELINGS.

Also I was super bad at it, the major downside of playing FFXIV on controller is that not every other game uses the same button map, NOCT WHY AREN'T YOU JUMPING I'M HITTING TRIANGLE FGSSDFJKFDSSSssss.... right, it's X.

So yeah, bro'd trip. Let's see how we fare.

Read more... )

AAAAND that's a wrap on Chapter one (plus a little, really), so let's call it a night. My brother's asking me to run a dungeon in XIV, anyway.

BTW, I streamed today's play, who knows if I'll do it again, but, tada. It will mostly me walked around, getting lost, fighting badly, and listening to these idiots be stupid at each other. I did not save the first round. I am not sure I will save future ones! But if you are bored then maybe I will be playing something badly and you can watch.

(Oh man I can't wait for Uncharted and all the cliff-falling-offs.)


Also I apologize for any missing H's the key keeps sticking on my keyboard uuugh.

Hey, remember two years ago when people were doing that "Pick a date in December and give me something to talk about" thing?

I'm bored and incapable of composing shit without prompts, but we're mid-December, here, so let's start the year off with a bunch of late entries, instead.

Pick a date in December JANUARY and give me something to talk about. Music, TV, books, video games, monsters, writing, science, publishing, food, travel, fictional characters and all of their feelings, cuddly animals, whatever.

LIST! )

Of course I don't know if anyone will even see this by January, hahar. Whatever.

For what very little it's worth, if there's anything I can do for any of my Brexit-victims friends (sympathy cards, consolation care packages, letters, a sofa to crash on as you flee to Canada, etc), please let me know. I will do what I can until my own country implodes in November.

Then we can flee to Canada together.
Uugh. I've basically not mentioned it here, but every time one of the tweets about the ending scenario of FFXI, Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, crosses my feed, I have what might be best described as a miniature panic attack.

Which, you know, is stupid, because I scarcely play these days, and it's not like they'll (immediately???) be taking the servers down, and I'm ... pretty sure they're not going to be, you know, blowing the planet up or anything, but...



Someday I really need to get off my butt like I've intended for the last 10 years and make a little Hisime plush.




/this entry brought to you by Jecca almost having a meltdown at work over this.

Mixed bag entry. Good news first, I suppose.

Had another follow up regarding my ankle/tibia/stealth staph infection this afternoon. Another round of x-rays. EXCELLENT NEWS. The site looks clear AND! The bone has actually grown back a little. So I have most of my feeling back around the incision, no returned staph infection, and some regrown bone, which I was warned would probably not happen, since, you know, late 20s and all. I was not scheduled for another appointment. Doctor figures if it was going to come back, it'd be there by now, so unless the pain starts up again, I'M CLEAN.


Aaaand the other news.

Relatives drama. )

So that's the news.
We are here at last! The last entry of the meme! The last day of December! The final moments of 2014! Time flows so strangely, doesn't it?

So my topic today is: Favorite moment/s of the year.

... I am going to make a list:

• my kitty's two year anniversary! How could this not be a favorite moment? A whole second year of safety and love! My poor baby.

• Universal Studios night. Say what you will about BotCon (goodness knows I do), that was just an amazing amount of fun. I mean, I had a lot of fun in Pasadena all around, but THEME PARK. Rollercoasters!!! KARAOKE PARTY BUS!

• EVERYTHING TFCON CHICAGO, up to and including our surprise Supernatural neighbors.

• Finally getting answers (and actions) for my stupid ankle problem, which was actually a tibia problem.

• Most of the crazy shit my FFXIV company and I have got up to. I love my guys. :3


I think those are probably my tops. It I go much farther, I'll just start listing everything that happened to me.

Oh wait also my promotion. That was pretty great. Yeah!

(And getting a phone I can update my journal from, maybe?? Hahaha)
So I somehow forgot to post this entry last night because I got distracted by things. herpderp

Today, I answer the mystery of how I remember which months have 30 days vs 31?

You know what? If I'd answered this in December I'd've had a different answer. Well. A shorter answer, anyway.

There's that stupid little thing, "30 days has September, April, June, and November," right? And I've always hated it because the months are in a stupid order, and for a while I tried to swap November and September, since at least that way they'd be in sort-of order. But I could not get it to stick. Also I went through a phase where I added May in, though I could not tell you why.

BUT. When I went back to work in February, somehow this subject came up, and I learnt a new way that I like better. You made a fist so your knuckles stick up, then you count on them. So the first knuckle, that's January, right? And the first dip between them is February, so the months with 31 days are raised and the shorter months are not. So you count up to July that way, and then you want to hit them all equally so you hit your last knuckle again for August, and just go back. This would probably be better served by video or illustration or something, but I'm tired and lazy tonight, so deal with it. If you want a visual, I can get on on Saturday. I'm busy tomorrow. (AVENGERSSSSSSSS.)

AND THAT IS MY SECRET.


You'd think, though, at some point we'd just memorize this information, right?! (Nope.)
Baco wants me to share both the prettiest picture and the most inexplicable file I have saved on my computer.

THIS WAS REALLY HARD??

For most inexplicable file, I am going with this.

Yes, I know, that is a link, but it is a link to a thing my brother sent me and that I saved, and I do not know why he linked it to me or why I saved it, but it's been bouncing along on my computer for I think literally years now.

Also it's seriously hypnotic and full of WHAT.

It was that or this re-write of a Ke$ha song to fit FFXI, which I have in a word doc, and which is brilliant even if it doesn't all quite fit.


As for prettiest picture, ugh, there's basically nothing for images on here right now, so I'm going to give you one of my favourite wallpapers, instead.

Sorry! D:



UNRELATEDLY those two Megan Trainor songs they like to play on the radio? All About The Bass and that other one that I can't really understand, it's on the radio right now. I Know You Lie or something.

They make me dizzy. There's too much spinning in them. Aaaand they are songs and there's not really any actual spinning (maybe in the music videos? But I haven't seen them) and maybe that's some kind of weird synaesthesia thing or something but it's really annoying, considering how frequently I hear them.
see

'cause

it's the 28th



of april



I really meant to pick this up last month.

I deeply begin to suspect it was, in fact, my staph infection that liked to hang around the internet so much, because I have no other explanation for why I'm basically fallen off it since then. Follow-ups for that have gone well so far. I have one more next month, and if they still don't see anything festering in there, they're going to cut me lose. I have MANY THINGS to say about hospitals, hospital bills, and hospital billing, but absolutely none of them are really, erm, well. May we leave it at "Jecca is displeased"?

Been up to stupid shit with my FC in FFXIV though. Just the other night, we had a FEASTING PARTY, which is a direct result of the Tea War which I... failed to mention ever at any point. Remind me to tell that story sometime. The feast party got recorded if you have 35 minutes to blow watching/listening to people be idiots in a video game.

Or you can watch/listen to 45 minutes of vaguely-incestuous wedding/after-party insanity. (Look. I wanted the wedding mount, because it is SUPER PRETTY, but no one would marry me, so one night it was 4 am and I was tired so I went and bought the wedding bracelets and just forced my brother to do it. We got drunk instead of kissing, so it's okay.) Everything was pink because one time we dyed the house pink, and there were pink cherry trees, and look everything else was pink okay whatever, your first mistake was taking anything about us seriously and it's your own fault.

ONION LIFE.

You know that thing where you suddenly hate basically all of your icons? merghjkgtlr;re

Anyway, I somehow ended up without an assigned topic for the 27th day of the, uh, December meme, so you're going to get a hopefully brief rundown of what'd been up with me since, well, who fucking knows, actually, but mid-December (ie, when I started missing meme days and mostly stopped replying to entry comments I AM SO SORRY it wasn't anything personal), to be more specific.

A story of an ankle. )

WORDS
hiiiiiiiiiiiii

I bet you're all wondering what the hell happened to me! TOO BAD. Tomorrow is free day. Today, thankfully (for me, since I'm not sure if I could launch back in with a massive wall of text), is the very short "What was your favorite thing about this Christmas?"

MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THIS CHRISTMAS WAS a couple things, actually. No one gave me shit about my not wanting to get up super early (I never want to get up as early as the rest of my family wants to get up) on account of my being Busted Leg Girl! (Not actually worst super hero ever, but definitely right up there.) When I was in too much pain to be reasonable and coherent, I was allowed to just take a stupid nap. I do not normally want to nap on Christmas, but it was nice, anyway.

Also my brother got us all some, uh, reusable glow sticks* for Christmas, and it ended up turning into a lightsaber fight, because of course it did. Someone, I think my dad, "cut" my legs off, and I was like, thank you!

Also we all got phones for Christmas, and I'm kinda liking having a smart phone, even if I do mostly only use it for Twitter.


* They're really cool, you twist the tops to turn them on or off and they really look like a glow stick, except they run on batteries and stuff.
Surprise! It's Christmas again! I'm going to try to get back to the December prompt list, and so, picking up where I left off, today is "Spam some plush shenanigans - all the plush shenanigans! :P"

I don't know about ALL, but here are some, anyway. )

Today, very sad thing, there's a cute church not too far from where I live. It wasn't actually in use, though apparently they were about to reopen it, and they'd been letting homeless people sleep in it. Something happened, no one knows what yet, but it caught fire this afternoon, and now it's a total mess. I went out and rubbernecked for a while, until I got too cold and upset (I am not a shining paragon of emotional stability at the moment) and then I went back home and found out that my apartment was affected by the power outage they'd initiated so I couldn't turn the heat on.

Also yesterday I finally dug my kindle back out and loaded most of my massive book backlog onto it and then I sat and read the entirety of World of Trouble and I haven't cried that hard from a book in a while (though, again, not exactly on stable footing, emotions-wise, and also meteors hitting planets seems to be some sort of trigger of mine, fucking dalamud), but it was so, so good. THAT LAST SENTENCE, AUGH.
