Hi, all. Been busy with work and stuff. I'm surfacing. Hope you've been well.

It's still crazy at work, so I'm not sure how much time I'll have. Right now I'm fighting off something, not sure what. But I'm here and I wanted to say, have missed you!

I am officially SUCCEEDED at the 20 in 28! *celebrates*

I don't think I lost a lick of weight, but the good news is, I didn't gain any, either. And my stamina is up, I'm sure.

Now to see about bonus 5ks. I might not have to try so hard to hit 'em now.

20 in 28 and Farscape!

Eternal by liminalliz
I'm at 18 out of the 20 and on schedule to finish up with maybe even a few extra. Will take it as it comes. And today I have over 10,000 steps, even though I'm not counting it in the 20 because the steps weren't dedicated to a 5K. Just a bonus.

They are talking about making a Farscape movie. OMG OMG OMG OMG. That is, assuming they bring on Browder and Black. If not, I weep.

But bring back John and Aeryn and I am so on board.

And just because...

12 down, 8 to go...

Eternal by liminalliz
Yesterday for a variety of ~reasons~ I managed over 19,000 steps - a record for me since getting the FitBit. Today I just eeked out 10,000, mostly after 5 pm, and the last 800 pacing the breezeway. No neighbors came out to question my sanity, though I'm sure some are doing it comfortably from their apartments.

I'm on target for my 20 in 28. 12 down, 8 to go.

For Dance fans

Eternal by liminalliz
A worthy cause: http://www.gofundme.com/alexisdanceinparis - you can help a young dancer on a trip of a lifetime and contribute to art as well! She's just started her funding quest and I've seen donations of as little as $5.00. Let's get this young woman to Paris and beyond!

OK, today I definitely claim the day in the name of the 20 in 28. I just might hit 15,000 before the day is over. Tired and sore! My ankles hate this, but it's for the best.

20 in 28 update

Eternal by liminalliz
I'm on track with the 20 in 28. I've had two "skip" days so far, which as I said is on track. Monday I was coming off of 4 hours of sleep or less and yeah, that was a complete skip. Yesterday I did 10,000 steps but didn't manage 3.2 mi. of them dedicated to that alone - and by the rules I set up, it does not qualify for the 20 in 28 (I was about a mile short, unlike Tues or Wed or whenever it was when it was only .5 or less).

Trudge, trudge, trudge...which reminds me. Gotta charge the mp3 player.

20 in 28

Eternal by liminalliz
So I've been bad about reporting this week on the 20 in 28. Monday was a rough day; I had insomnia and only got 4 hours of sleep. So Monday was my first skip day. Tuesday I ended up walking at lunch - technically I'm ~.5 of a mile short of the 5k, but I did over 13,000 steps which is something like 6 miles for the day. So I'm claiming success on Tuesday. Yesterday I lapped campus 3x, which is roughly a mile and a bit each circuit, so success. That brings the tally up to 4 down, 16 to go.

Day two...accomplished. :)

Not much else was today, but that was. 2 down, 18 to go.

Hi, all! I've been away quite a bit, in part because I've had the on-the-edge-of-sickness, feeling-like-crap feeling for...oh, all of January and a good chunk of December. :-/ Not sure what that's all about. Hope something will come of it in March when I have my check up.

And said check up is why I'm instituting "20 in 28"! It's where I try to walk a 5k (3.2 mi.), independent of anything else I'm doing, for 20 of February's 28 days. That means I don't count the steps I take when I'm running across the street to talk to my boss or someone. It means I only count the steps that are being taken for exercise's sake alone.

One down, 19 to go...

I'm also tempted to ask for prompts for small things. Uh...for fandoms? SGA, of course. Sherlock, I'd try. Marvel Cinematic Universe (Avengers et all). Agents of SHIELD. Castle. Grimm. Arrow. Community...probably more but those are some of the ones I know, and you can ask for others. I'll let you know if I don't feel I can write in that fandom. Prompt - give me a word, a scene, characters, some combination of those, etc.

An early happy new year!

Well, at least to those of us in this hemisphere. ;)

Happy happy new year! Here's hoping 2014 is your best year yet.

Happy holidays!

Eternal by liminalliz
And an early Merry Christmas to those who celebrate it. Just had the best Christmas present ever, when Ebony, who had crawled up on my lap, followed my finger with her gaze as it circled her head. I doubt she's seeing as she used to, but there is no question that she *IS* seeing. :)

Happy birthday to callingmethere! I hope it's grand. :)

Ebony is tracking movement more and more. I don't think her eyesight will return 100%, but I don't think she'll be completely blind, either, so I'll take it.

Also, this:

R.I.P., Peter O'Toole. You will be missed; you were one of the greats.


December 1st, 2013

I'm thankful for all of you. :)

Spent several days with friends who have kids, and am now sniffling big time. Though I was fighting something off, so...

Happy to have had a good holiday. Happy to be home, as is Miss Ebony.

Jewelry projects

Eternal by liminalliz
I have been busy with work but I did manage to make a few new pieces.

[Lead Crystal right angle weave snowflake necklace]

A different view, because getting a clear shot is a pain with these types of beads:

Lead crystal and glass pearls.

[Red and Black art glass and silver plate]

Art glass, glass pearls, and silver plate. I really like this set. :)

[Tiger eye and sterling]

Another favorite. Sterling and tiger eye. The clasp is a simple spring ring clasp.

Another view.

[Poppy jasper and pewter]

Poppy jasper and pewter.

[Fuchsia dyed shell, blackstone and silver plate]

Fuchsia dyed shell, blackstone and silver plate necklace. :)

[Synthetic malachite, silver plate and Czech beads]

Synthetic malachite, Czech beads, glass pearls, and silver plate.

Back view:

[And also a couple of stand-alone earrings]

Blue art glass and Czech crystal (the match is a lot closer; my camera hates blue) and silver plate.

Black and silver art glass, Czech crystal and sterling

So let me know if you're interested! If not, well, it was good to get back in the saddle, so to speak.

[Not at all spoilery in terms of plot but behind a cut nonetheless...actually, it's quite unrelated in most ways.]

I really want to see a buddy-cop series with Tennant and Smith playing basically Ten and Eleven (Eleven and Twelve?), while John Hurt is the seasoned old-timer who rescues their butts from time to time and makes crusty remarks.

Oh! Oh! Oh! And can we have a different series with a bunch of the companions as members of a band trying to make it in the cold, cruel world?

...no, I haven't had a lot of sleep as of late, why do you ask?

So can we make that happen? Please?

I'm crawling out of the utter insanity that has been this semester. Between a heavy work load and an attempt to really commit to working out, my spare time has been very limited. But I'm here! I'll try to catch up with y'all, but forgive me if I've missed stuff. And I have missed it!

I'm thinking of doing Holiday cards again this year. Anyone interested?
