This journal is...

 

Big posts that are available on other forums, communities, etc are public. Photoshoots, photostories, sales posts...stuff like that.
The rest is my private life. And I'm interbutts-shy.
If you friend me, leave me a note. Let me know who you are!
Otherwise, don't expect to be friended back. :<

FST: thank you, liar

New FST! And it's super spoiler-tastic. :'D For the people on my flist that don't read Umineko, click the cut anyway just to see the hipster-tastic collection of songs I succeeded in throwing together. Seriously, it's insane. I promise my musical tastes aren't usually this out there.... I blame Pandora radio. ;~;

Lolita closet post!

It's about time I put my lolita plans on paper - so far my wishlist has been all over the place, and this should help me organize it so I can actually get a better look at it and evaluate it better. This way I don't end up with 42 yellow JSKs that I wear with pink blouses only. Because I'm pretty sure I'd end up that way if nasty things like logic aren't there to stop me. :T Plus it's interesting to see just how much of my lolita wants are based around freaking fruit.

And yes, I do have the OP version of a JSK I already have on my want list. I WANT MY BIGASS RED BUSTLEBUTT. The JSK was just to tide me over til I could find the OP for sale anyway hurr although I'm kind of getting attached to the JSK now as well god dammit.

Also, at some point I'll actually take photos of all my stuff. SOMEDAY I'LL NOT BE LAZY. SOMEDAY.  WHABAM, UPDATED. Now to sit around and twiddle my thumbs while my paychecks come in and I can get more shit. heeeeeeee

LOOK AT THIS

I'll talk about the NYC trip later. There are much more important things at hand.

FOR EXAMPLE

 
THERE IS A VIDEO OF CUTE SHIT HOLY SHIT WATCH IT

I'm not in the video, since I've been out of town (OF FREAKING COURSE I MISS THIS), but you can see Mollie, the keeper that works with me with the prairie chickens, tending the kiddos in the pool and my boss, Hannah. I am so excited to go back to work tomorrow to do this. *w*

I'm gonna have to start dividing up this aminals tag into species-specific posts, aren't I?

FST: get inside her head

Lord knows what prompted me to sit down and actually work on this, but hey! Guess what!

Whereas I'd nag anyone and everyone to give that Umineko FST I made a listen, this one....I really wouldn't recommend you even TOUCH unless you're a fan of the game, lmfao. Seriously. Shit's weird. Half the tracks on here I'm pretty sure can't even be considered music.

 

This writeup is, uh....nontraditional to say the least. Yume Nikki isn't exactly a traditional game either, though, so just call it ~EXPERIMENTAL~ or something pretentious-sounding.

YES JEN, I ACTUALLY SAT DOWN AND FINISHED IT. THAT'S TWO FSTS NOW THAT I'VE PROVED YOU WRONG. MUAH AH AH.

Crocodile tears

Felt motivated to try and do something with the girls today~ I was planning on just doing a quick itty bitty photoshoot, most likely produce a one-shot, but once I got them into the pose I just couldn't put the camera down. They just looked too damn sweet. DX After I finally tore myself away so I could let Mom have her kitchen counter back (lol creative photoshoot locations) I couldn't even bear to break up the pose, lmfao. So Feu and Lu are chilling on my desk being fucking adorable.



Lol my desk is a useless mess. Then again, even if it were clean, I wouldn't be able to do much on it anyway - see large aquarium on left. That's Norbert's home - a king snake I'm babysitting for a friend that's....babysitting for a friend. He's super freakin' shy. Poor guy has zero to no socialization and I don't think his owner has even tried. I mean, he's in a top-loading aquarium...if you want a friendly snake, that's really not the way to go. So he spends his days hiding under his mulch and under his water bowl. And whenever I try to find him to make sure he's not dead or escaped, he shakes his widdle tail (he's only like...two feet long at the most - super tiny and super cuuuuute aaauuugh) going NYUUUU I'M A BIG SCARY RATTLESNAKE LEMME ALOOONE. Freaking adorable.


...Augh wtf LJ, I hit the enter key and you decide that means post? NO. NO STOP THAT. BAD LJ. Trying this again. jfdhgdsjdsfg.

AUGH CHRIST AND THEN I HIT THE WRONG BUTTON AND THE WHOLE THING ERASES WHAT I WAS JUST WRITING. DFKJDSFGG.

Anyways, photoshoot. Enjoy out of character Lu. You've been warned. It's creepy.

Who wants doll clooothes

 Just started up a thread on DoA for clothing sales! Not like.....I really have much for sale of my own stuff yet lmfao. Having issues sewing at the moment...nothing is turning out how I want, fgsfds. Still though, I figured if I get the thread up it might motivate me to push through and keep trying so the space can get filled.

The sales thread is here for any interested parties!

I'M ON TEEVEE

No I'm not. I'm lying.

BUT YOU KNOW WHO WILL

MY BAAAAAAAABIIIIIEEESSSSSSSSSS

:3


For those who are reading this and have no clue whatsoever as to what I'm talking about, I'm currently in my fourth summer as an intern at the Houston Zoo raising Attwater's prairie chickens from hatch to release to augment the wild population and try to recover the species from the brink of extinction. And by brink, I mean there are less than a hundred wild birds in existence - they're one of the most endangered species in the country. And they poop a lot but their babies are really really cute so that's what matters. They are fuzzy. I like them.

Fortunately, everyone in Montana can ignore this next part, because the Montana PBS is the division that's hosting the broadcast. Everywhere else in the country, however, it's up to the local station whether or not they air the program. It all depends on how much interest they think their viewers will have in the program. So what does this mean? It means anyone and everyone that's reading this that lives in the US needs to call their local PBS station and go HEY. HEY. YOU GUYS KNOW THIS TIM BARKSDALE GUY? RUN HIS SHOW. DO IT. FUCKING DO IT.

The show is called The Last Prairie Chicken and it's spotlighting all the efforts people have been putting in to rescue these species of birds. It doesn't focus on any one species in particular, so there'll be a lot of northerners talking about their Lesser Prairie Chickens and Greater Prairie Chickens and blah blah blah but most importantly, it will have the Attwater's Prairie Chickens. AND THEIR BABIES. WHICH ARE MY BABIES.

Unfortunately, the only blurb I can find on the internet about it so far is this from earlier in the month. The guy came by today, however, to film some video and grab some stills of the chicks. I think he's going to shoop them into scenes from The Matrix or something because he insisted on filming them with a green screen. I don't know. Still though, baby fucking prairie chickens

HOW COULD YOU EVER SAY NO TO SOMETHING SO CUTE
 
It'll be airing this May, so if you're in Montana, keep an eye on the TV schedule on PBS to see when it's on. I tried asking the guy for a ballpark estimate of when it'd air, but all he could say for sure was May. And those not in Montana, START NAGGING YOUR PBS STATION TODAY. DO IT. DO IT NOWWWW.


Also, I may have lied a little bit when I said I wasn't going to be on TV after all. Because I might - the film crew just hasn't moved on to filming our chicks yet. This fall, National Geographic is doing a big show on the Houston Zoo and it's many and various conservation projects. We're super huge in the conservation business, from Bowling for Rhinos to Pongos Helping Pongos to our partnership with Baylor College of Medicine pumping out research on the elephant herpes virus to the Saint Vincent Amazon breeding program to PRAIRIE CHICKENS YEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH. We've had two cameramen hanging around in the bird department for some time now, and they've been popping around the zoo filming various shots for the program. Since the prairie chicken breeding and release project is one of our biggest conservation projects (ok well I say it is), they've already guaranteed they'll be shooting a lot of clips of the work Mollie (the keeper in charge of the APCs), Hannah (the curator of the department), and us interns do to keep the babies healthy and ready to be released. So several people have said it's extremely likely that I'll be on TV, since I'm pretty much /physically attached/ to these birds I'm so busy with them.

Again, no release date on that one, but that one's far enough off anyway that I won't be expecting one for a while. But hey. Mark your calendars and keep an eye out!
