    • All I Am is Lies

      7 years ago

      Sefira

      I always knew my name was forged on my birth certificate

      And that my mom didn't put a name on my original

      And that my grandparents started calling me a different name that I hated when I was old enough to know better

      Today I got my original birth certificate according to Louisana birth records

      Apparently I was born to my grandparents when they were 45 in New Orleans while they were living in the corporate housing location they bought when I was fourteen in a city even they'd never heard of until '99

      My mom and dad aren't on the page at all

      There's no birth cities for my "parents"

      There's no birth weight or height or anything like that

      And what finally snapped me was

      My birth time on my certificate of live birth says 06.26

      My birth certificate that I had to get a copy of for my new DL was 06.46

      I get the rest of the lies

      I can understand that

      But I wasn't even allowed my birth time?

      I hate all the deception

      Oh yeah

      634 Social Security First Digit Key Code that I always knew was South Texas

      Eagle Pass

      It's a stolen number sold to my grandparents at an illegal immigrant jump station

      Yeah

      I'm not gonna be okay

    • Caboose Flavoured Chocolate

      7 years ago

      Sefira

      Lemme explain a bit.

      I joined the Dragon Age Secret Santa exchange and decided to have a bit of fun with it, since they allowed physical gifts as well as digital. I got a shitload of candy-making supplies and asked all my online friends what flavours they'd want. I made a long list of characters in fandoms, and since DA is part of it there's also a lot of OCs in the mix.

      And like everyone wants the Alistair bar, it's nuts The Alistair bar contains absolutely zero nuts sorry for the confusion . Personally, I'm expecting to like Aveline, Isabela, and DAA-Anders most myself smiley12.gif .

      Anyway DA is far from my only fandom. Everyone knows Davey's Main Fandom is Red vs Blue.

      So. I'm making those too.

      And tonight, I had a conversation with a seven year old girl about what flavour Caboose would be.

      According to her?

      Chocolate, lots of chocolate, and gummy bears, and M&Ms, and gummy bears.

      Caboose is apparently Diabetes-flavoured.

      All that aside Simmons flavour sucks. Stupid Vegan chocolate options, like half my flavours have Savannah Bee Company honeys and I'm using casein-chocolate mixes.

    • I hate anon comments.

      7 years ago

      Sefira

      I just feel like if you're gonna say something, put your name on it.

      I only anon when required, like kinkmemes or "Leave an anon message and I'll blank" stuff. I will never ever hide my opinions under a banner- They belong to me. I'll put my fucking name on them.

      That being said I shouldn't be so offended by anon-comment ficlove, should I?

    • No tumblr

      Sefira

      No

      No no no no no

      I can't accept that pace

      I can't accept that it is 100% reversible

      There is no such thing as a private comment between friends on a piece because if you make one it becomes seen by the entire site who tagged in on the same thing and they will very quickly jump in on every statement

      There is no room for a kid who's technologically stupid and sociologically blunt and armed with black humour and dry witticisms and a tendency to call'em like they see'em enough to make Yogi Berra proud without that same kid accidentally becoming the biggest douchebag on the entire site due to simple FLAWED UNDERSTANDING OF THE WAY IT GOES BACKWARDS AND THE SPEED IT'S PICKED UP

      So on tumblr I saw this meme, and I had to do it.

      Also I changed my tumblr name.

    • I'm sure it means nothing.

      But I have a tumblr now. http://dottewasf.tumblr.com/

    • Art, huh?

      7 years ago

      Sefira

      It's funny. I actually hated answering art questions in school. Not because of the art, itself, but because art students are extremely pretentious and it'd either be some love song to a well-known or some modern day lesser known webcomic artist or dA commission brat, and then when I WASN'T in art school it was even worse.

      So I'd pull ones I knew off-hand.

      I've written timed essays on Dali and Botticelli and skipped entirely on da Vinci and Rembrandt. I've admitted to loving Bernini's scupture work far more than Michelangelo's in front of affronted English teachers pretending they were art experts and never even hearing of the first name (hint: They were CONTEMPORARIES, so it shouldn't even be hard to fake). I've sat there in a room of people saying there were no living artists greater than James Cameron's character designers for Pandora and pointed out that Roger Dean invented every stolen detail thirty and forty and even fifty years ago, which is exactly why he sued the fuck out of them. I'd laugh that way only a former science geek turned art major can when someone'd tell me that Escher was an amazing ARTIST instead of just a highly whimsical MATHEMATICIAN trying to point out exactly what math looked like.

      I like art.

      I like to draw, sometimes I like to sculpt. I have a lot of creative hobbies, actually, even though I'm typing this during another missed music class.

      I just, feel bad when it's either the same answers, or it's answers that are designed to look clever because "You've never heard of this guy." Why not just, poke around the contemporaries of your favourites? Get Monet and Manet confused just once and be surprised? Pull out your mom's old harlequins, your dad's old D&D stuff, and your crazy uncle's old records, and look up the cover artists? Check out the painters for comic books?

        Just never anything to do on this site anymore, and I half-way converted my LJ into a fic archive. I don't even know. I'm on tumblr mainly now.

      I agree so much with most of this except I love South smiley12.gif

      Even the characters I draw short and/or skinny (Church in my fanon is 5'7 and very lean, Caboose is from the MOON with no gravity so he's lithe), they don't look twink. Just short and/or skinny.

    • MildGrooveOn

      That's great, thank fuck they're not going to show BGC charries. That'd ruin my life, man.

      Not a huge fan of South, so whatever. I'll deal.
      Dude, I'm tired of EVERY character being a fucking twink to fangirls. of the bajillion homos in my life, not one of them looks, acts, or speaks like one.

      amen.

      See, my main problem is during the two week period since Gus has announced the tickets were going to be released at a to be determined date with limited supply, I've been transfered four time between three states, and am about to start a fifth trip. And the fact that I will very likely miss a ticket to an event I'd been wanting to attend because I cannot in any way spend all day online pisses me off because by mid-April (yeah, after when the RvB-TX would've gone) my job circumstances will stabilise.

      I'll try to attend the winter event, but while I am Texan and often go to Texas either to visit family or work, I can't garauntee I can get away for a fourteen hour drive to spend a weekend out when I might be on tighter schedule. I'll still watch the group though because I was excited for it and no reason not to be smiley12.gif . And of course I've read through the journals as much as possible.

      Well, right about now, I was originally planning to be announcing that tickets for RvB:TX were on sale. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case. You might have heard that the RT staff has their own event planed for late May. We, the organizers of RvB:TX, don't feel it will be possible to compete with a larger and better organized event, so we're officially canceling our event.

      But all is not lost! We're keeping the group page for two reasons:

      1) RvB:TX will now be a hub for all RT fans in and around Texas. We'll keep people up to date on RT related events in and around Texas, from small meet ups to the RoosterTexas event the staff is planning. If you have not already done so, please watch the group to stay up to date on the news.

      2) We're planning a smaller get together in Austin this winter. It won't be as big as our original plans, but it'll still be a chance for fans to get together and have fun.

      For more details, please see the journal here.

      See, I get heavy fat beef and mix it with ground lamb, but drain the shit out of it. First thing any Texan learns about beef is the fat adds flavours and you can always get rid of it after the cooking's done smiley13.gif . Okay, the second thing, after "Beef is from moo-cows!"

    • MissZahrah FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      8 years ago

      well, probably the best benefit of it is ify ou can't afford very lean ground beef, you can strain out the grease before putting it in the soup so you don't have that lovely layer of fat on top.

      I like it when the meat is browned on the outside. I sear cube steak before it goes in a stew as well.

      (plus, in this case, I pulled it out of the freezer and had little choice.)

      Well, I'm not paid for any of it, so I consider it more of a volunteer career. But I'm enjoying the shit out of it. :)

      Who knows, maybe years down the road with gigs like these on my resume, I'll find a way into a chorus that does those awesome sound tracks for movies or something.

      It wasn't annoyance. It was awareness. I've seen people complain before without realising some of us are actually being gentle. However I do think it's lazy to not work around it- for au fanfic I've been known to research every little detail about menus, so imagine how much detail I stock in the REST.

      Thanks for the journal comment! :)

      Okay I must admit, when I reference writers in my journal I just used it as an example, I didn't mean it literally. Yes, I get you trained people want to look for every little fault in a story and that is just amazing that you people do so, but some of us... in a sense just want to write for the sake of writing and improving in our own light and not in the light of a graduate student.

      If you're feeling annoyed at what I wrote I apologize but we're all human and we all have different opinions with mine being, leave us non-professional writer's alone because we want to write for fun.

      I honestly think that show is destroying an entire generation of western intelligence on top of being just miserably horrible, but if you LIKE bad things, you're welcome to it.

      I do see your point and all but nonetheless it isn't gonna change my opinion since to me, it's a great show.

      So... agree to disagree?

      Friendly Neighborhood RvB:TX Admin here! Just a few updates on the group today:
      1) We officially have 200 members! Sweet! You Guys Rock!

      2) We'd really appreciate it if everyone watches the group and checks the forum every few weeks or so. We post polls and messages on the group and we need YOUR input to make sure that this RvB:TX will be the best yet. If you already watch the group, thanks a ton! If not, go here and click the watch button. There are also polls concerning likelihood of attendance and optimum ticket price in the group forum.

      3) The event is being tentatively scheduled for next March. Hope to see you there!

      4) We could really use the help of a Web Designer. if you or someone you know could help us get even a bare bones site running, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please note that this will be an act of volunteerism on your part. We'd love to pay you, but we just don't have the money. But isn't being able to say that you designed a site in order to celebrate the greatest Machinima series ever reward enough? If you are still interested, please contact myself, or one of the other group admins.

      5) Keep active in the group. The planning staff is constantly looking for cool ideas for events, and they are the best spot to get yours out there.

      That's all folks! Keep your eyes glued to the screen for further updates.
