Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows. Comment, and I'll give you a letter!

I don't often take up memes, but this one offered a challenge and some interesting character introspection. So without further ado-

D is for, Companions, and Kings, and Conmen and more! )
laialda: (A Toast!)
A few hours into the day and I'm already receiving several birthday well wishes on all the usual suspects, as well as a few birthday first. I've never had anyone gift me a fic before and the digital cupcake was also a very nice surprise when I checked my messages this morning, so thank you for those my flist friends. ^_^

I wanted to take this moment however on my birthday to wish you all a very merry unbirthday in return! :D I even baked you a cake. ;)

A very nice robot gave it to me. Said she wouldn't be needing it for some reason...Oh well, more for us then!

I think I'll be spending my day doing some writing or drawing. Gym first though, that's sadly unavoidable, but floor/chair class is a fun way to do it I suppose. ;) You all enjoy this lovely cake and have a Very Merry Unbirthday!

So flisters, you may or may not have noticed a lack of any activity from me from about...mid November. The main reason for that being my friend and I were last minute confirmed for a table at the gaming convention Magfest. This of course meant the 5 months I originally had to make my little dolls suddenly became 1.5 and i had to crochet and sew like a mad woman.

All the work paid off in the end though as my friend and I had a kick ass time at the con and each made over 1k selling our geeky crafts. :D We were also interviewed! So if you'd like to see a tired Saturday morning me takling about my stuff then just click on the link here.

The most surprising thing for me at the con was just how popular Doctor Who was with gamers. I sold my 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor, 10th Doctor in Blue, Cyberman, and a plush TARDIS. Only poor Rose didn't sell :( Though I gave out lots of business cards to people anxious to see what new Doctor Who dolls I would make, so that's exciting as I love new friends/stalkers. ^_^

Two girls also made my weekend by knowing who/where my Hatter doll was from and we gushed over Mr. Potts for a good few minutes. :D

This was my first convention where I've been able to talk to people who are buying my dolls and it was really great to see how many people like my little creations, and talk to them about them. As such, I do have about 5 doll commissions to make before I can get started on new ones for my next convention in April (A comic con so lots of superhero dolls coming this way soon), but before then I want to churn out some new chapters for Curious and Curiouser. Poor chapter 11 has been in my head since June and I'd like to reward my faithful readers by writing up maybe another 4-5 chapters to post over the next 2 months so that while I'm working on dolls and things I don't have to worry about trying to write at the same time.

I'd also like to get some chapters written for my DW/Alice crossover New New Wonderland as I really want to get to the second arc as I've FINALLY over the last few months started to figure out how I'd change the plot of Alice. :)

Well, I've got one gaming onesie commission down and one to go before starting my dolls, but I'll be around the interwebs while I work so you should start seeing me around more. ^_^

A Night Out

I don't get them often and, honestly, I don't really crave going out and being jostled at clubs or bars or what have you. Still, there was something to be said for going out with great friend when you are poor. They all knew this from that start but love my company and proclaimed 'no excuses we shall buy dinner for you!'. Well, who am I to turn down free food from a local Baltimore burger joint called Abby Burger? ^_~ The special thing about them is that they have uncommon meats available for your burgers (last night's special was kangaroo) and let you build it however you like. Now I'd actually never been, but my friends have a handful of times, and instead of a nice dinner out, the evening quickly turned into 'Let's get Nicole drunk cause she never drinks a lot at our parties!' and then 'Oh we're so full! You know what we should do? Go dancing and drink at another bar!'

So I was treated to a night of free drinks (totaled to: Some frozen raspberry thing named after the Ravens, a SoCo and lime shot, an ice-tea flavored thing mixed with lemonade shot, a rum & coke, and half of an alcoholic berger (cookie not meat) shake), a great meal, and all I had to do was deal with being as drunk as I can get (note: I don't drink a lot cause it doesn't turn my brain off/lower inhibitions for whatever reason, just makes me feel light headed and dizzy) and dance for about an hour before sick person begged (and DD) said he needed to go home.

Not too bad of an evening and it makes the horrible person in me want to claim I have no money more often just to see if I can get more nights like this. XD

On a completely different topic, I NEED NEW VEGAS TO BE LESS ADDICTING!! >.< Seriously, it kept me from getting some dolls finished this last week and it's all I've been playing this weekend. I really need to just leave my nice new computer alone and go do some writing on my laptop. If I finish a chapter then I will consider myself allowed to play some more.....
