On tumblr. Because livejournal still sucks balls and I was too lazy to find all of my fandoms again on dreamwidth.

I imported my journal over to Dreamwidth.  The new changes incoming for the friendslist was the last straw.

Bullet list, because I can't be bothered.

1: Dave, my stepdad, is going back into the hospital today.  This is after being in ours for a few days and then hurriedly transported to St. Louis for another few days, because he was doing so poorly, last month. I am not pleased.

2: After the stress of last month, Luke and I decided to go to a Cardinals game today. That should be fun, and help get our minds off everything. ...this is, of course, after stopping by to check on Dave before we head to St. Louis.

3: Month and a half until the Nightwish concert! For my birthday present, Luke bought the VIP tickets, so we're going to get to meet everyone!  Marco, Tuomas, Anette... I'm already dreaming about it.

4: As far as gaming goes, still playing SWTOR, don't want to hear "lol it sucks and going F2P." I'm still keeping my sub because I genuinely enjoy it. However, I am trying out Rift (So far not too impressed, but we'll see what happens when I get past the first little area).

5. I still have the cutest cats in the world. Hands down.

Still playing TOR.  Still not playing SL. Moving. Working WAY too much. Might update for real later.

Hey! An entry I can't make on facebook, so I'll be passive-aggressive here!

Hey. You. Cousin.

Liking Twilight does NOT make you a nerd. In fact, it almost makes you the exact opposite. There ARE nerds who like Twilight, but YOU, cousin, ARE FAR FROM A NERD.

The previous message is brought to you by Katy not wanting to go to work tomorrow and taking out her anger on the internet.

The Salem Witch Trial of 2012

So, the library in my town is being sued.

And I'm so angry, I'm seeing red.

For most of my childhood, the library in my town was a safe place.  I spent nearly all of my summers there, reading in the cool shelves, away from my house, that in many ways, though full of love, was still somewhat toxic.  I not only read every single Nancy Drew book there, but I also read many of the classics-- Jules Verne, Mark Twain, and also spent more hours than I can possibly count reading from The Red Fairy Book and Grimm's Fairy Tales.

In many ways, the Salem Public Library shaped who I am today.  My love of reading was encouraged (even though I had a problem with getting books back on time... we won't talk about some of my fines, though they were ALWAYS paid) and I discovered worlds that I probably wouldn't have, had I been stuck at home.

When I moved back to Salem after my father passed away, the librarians still remembered who I was.  When I moved back to Salem again, after college, the librarians still remembered me.

So seeing what is happening feels like a punch to the gut.  Though there's no rational reason for it, I feel betrayed.

Researching other religions is NOT criminal activity.  Yes, you could make the argument that stupid teenagers might look it up and use it as an excuse to go do stupid teenage stuff. I get that.  And someone on my facebook friends list is calling this "the government taking away the rights of the town to make their own decisions." But you know what?

This is WRONG.  We live in a nation where we have certain liberties.  Included are freedom of speech and freedom of religion.  When are these liberties removed?  When they infringe upon someone else's speech and religion.  Someone looking up Native American Spirituality is NOT infringing on someone else's right to their own speech or their own religion.  Looking up paganism is NOT infringing on someone else's right to their own speech or their own religion.

Tomorrow morning I am going to cancel my library card.  There's nothing I can do about supporting it via my tax dollars, but at least I can let them know they have lost my patronage.

I am sorely disappointed in the lack of Saints Row fanfiction. Just minutes into the third game, and I started shipping MAIN CHARACTER and Shaundi.

What is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?

Cheesy, yes. But completely true. My husband's face at our wedding. It's the only thing I can really remember from that day, actually.

Excerpt from my novel. I hit over 20k tonight.

Storytellers can be really fun.Collapse )

Oh, editing this is going to be a pain in the ass.
