Miss Kohana turned me on to this one:

Pick up to 10 ships. OTP/OT3/OT4s.
Describe them in less than 15 words.
Have your flist guess the ship. You can guess more than one ship.

1.  She fought the system and never backed down from a challenge. He journeyed for years to reach his goal - then gave it all up to do what was right. In the end, the biggest sacrifice he was prepared to make was for her.

2.  She wanted her privacy - he wouldn't give it to her. He criticized her chosen path, even though what he did most of the time was outside the law. In the wilds of space, the thing they seemed most afraid of was their feelings.

3. Ah, the allure of a warrior woman! He was the best at what he did, but she didn't like him at all when they first met. Obviously things changed.;)

4. These two got to know each other on an adventure that was more about the journey than the destination. They called each other all kinds of horrible names, but when she was in trouble - he was the first to come to her rescue.

 5. A king in waiting, she was the one who waited for him for decades until he got his act together. In the end she was left behind, but their love became the stuff of legends.

 6. A pair of wounded warriors fighting to change their country - they rely on each other in the heat of battle, and when they've reached their emotional breaking points.

 7. They've known each other since childhood, but are only in their teens realizing what they have might be more than friendship. She's vowed to support him until the end of his mission - if he can survive her constant beatings!

 8. Always together, forever apart. Jealousy curses these two lovers to an existence where each is just beyond the other's reach. Only when the sun and moon met could they finally be together.

 9. Another ruler-in-training, he's competing with several siblings for the title. While some people might say they'd give an arm or a leg for another person - his loyal bodyguard actually *did.*

 10. She's his inspiration - but she doesn't see it quite that way. She's a tough customer, with a wall up to hide her emotions; he's a smart aleck with a smart mind that's earned him a lot of cash on the bestseller list.

Since zoetekohana and I haven't seen an Avatar friending meme before, we thought it might be cool to set up one. It's almost a year ago since Avatar ended and the fandom is still going strong, so we thought it'd be fun to get to know some fellow fans better.

Just click on either the banner or link to get the friending party started. =D

Ehhhhh... I've been slacking as far as updating this.  Need to get better!  Anyway, I'm at work right now, struggling to keep my eyes open.  For some reason I've been SO tired lately, and I just need to lie down and rest.  Good thing my vacation starts tomorrow, huh?;)  Though I do need to do some major cleaning at the house, since my Mom is coming into town tomorrow (yay!), and I'd like to have the place look somewhat decent for her arrival.  

There was a little bit of excitement at work yesterday - some equipment on the floor below us caught fire.  Of course, the way the building evacuation was conducted... left me less than confident that if something really DID go down we'd be safe.  It was so disorganized that it was silly.  Ah well... maybe I'll talk to someone about it.

In addition to being tired this morning, some of my co-workers are also in a foul mood.  I mean, I get that they hate working this shift, too, but why take it out on others?  Work sucks for me almost every day, and you don't hear me being nasty to other people.;)  

I'll try to update more often, for all two of you reading this!  I'll try to work up something interesting to say next time around.:D

Eh, lather, rinse, repeat here lately.  Headaches, sleepiness, dizziness, natch.;)  Work's been ok the past few days - just a lot more of the load is on my shoulders than normal, due to people quitting.  But I don't begrudge them one bit... heck, I would love to be out of there, too!  I'm still working on that, though - the latest incarnation of my resume is underway, hopefully this time with much less suckage.  This is so frustrating - I write for a living, yet I can't seem to find a way to put my skills and experience into words.  I don't know if that's irony, or just PHAIL.  I have a suspicion that it's a little bit of both.

My poor husband wound up working an 11 hour day today, so I know he's exhausted as well.  We, of course, did the healthy thing and had McDonald's for dinner after he got home.;)   I know, I know.  I worry about my arteries, too.  I'll try not to make a habit of it.

Totally unrelated, but these are just the thoughts popping into my head right now:  I really want MAC's Soft and Slow Lipglass, and a Wii Fit.  Maybe in that order.  Maybe not.  I hope by the end of the summer to transform myself into some sort of awesome goddess.  The Lipglass and Wii Fit might help.;)

 Well, I commented on my last post about the fact that I had gone two days without a post, and I called myself a slacker!  So now it's been, what... 12 days?  Goodness, I've gotten worse!  I promise I'll try to update more in the future.:)

I guess the biggest thing going on right now involves one of my friends.  Because I'm a geek (and I say this proudly), and I hang out with other geeks, we have a weekly tabletop Dungeons and Dragons gaming session on Thursday nights.  Sort of our version of the old folks getting together for bridge, canasta, or Mah Jong.  Anyway, THIS Thursday, when our friend LeeAnna was driving herself and her daughter Lily to our house for our get-together, some numbskull rear-ended her, and wound up bumping her pretty hard.  No damage to LeeAnna's car, but Lily (who's 5) got a big bump on the back of her head, and LeeAnna wound up with some marks from where the sit belt clinched up.  The lady in the other car basically got out, told LeeAnna her name, asked quickly if she was ok, then took off.  I guess I should mention at this point that LeeAnna is SEVEN MONTHS PREGNANT, so yeah, the lady shouldn't have bolted like that.  In fact, she should have called the paramedics.  LeeAnna and Lily wound up getting to our house and eating dinner, then heading to the ER to get checked out.  Lily's ok -her head's just a bit sore - but LeeAnna got a call the next day (Friday), say there had been a tear (small) in the placenta, and that she needed to stay at the hospital 24 hours for observation.  Everything SHOULD be fine - I'm crossing my fingers and toes for her - but needless to say, she and her husband are severely stressed (actually, her husband's spitting mad, as rightly he should be).  So here's hoping the doctor gives her the a-ok today and that things turn out well.

As for me - well, I've pretty much had a headache all week, and it's sucked - and I mean, sucked majorly.  I had a bunch of things I wanted to accomplish on my  "days off" - and I got nothing done because I spent most of that time in bed, wishing the pain would go away.  I mean, I've had chronic headaches for years - probably since I was about 15 or 16, so half my life - but they seem to be getting worse.  And far more frequent.  Right now I'm just taking over-the-counter medication, but I got a prescription yesterday.  I might try it out, I'm just worried about the side effects.  Guess I'll eat plenty of food before I take it, and sleep.  It's the best I can do.:)  By the way, I'm blaming this totally on the weather, which is just about as screwy as it can get.  For Pete's sake, it's 53 degrees here and rainy!  I thought this was supposed to be June...?

Anyway, peace out, folks - hope your craniums are feeling better than mine has the past few days.;)

Whaaaaaaaaaaat?  How could I do that?  Well, easy!  I'm a slacker in everything else, so why not in this as well?  Anyway, the past couple of days have been largely uneventful, save for a good bit more socializing than normal, which is cool.  Today was Memorial Day, but like every Memorial Day since I've been a working joe, I was on the job.  Not too bad, though.  No managers, so that was a blessing - and you've got to admit, the commute is wonderful!  The husband stopped by work to take me out for a burger lunch at Dick's (a Seattle legend immortalized in Sir Mix-a-Lot's song, "My Posse's on Broadway").  Then I went home a few hours later and played Rock Band 'til I gave myself carpal tunnel syndrome.  Ah, good times.;)

That's about it... hopefully I'll think up something more deep and intellectual tomorrow.  For now... hasta luego.:D
