I'M GOING TO SEE CLAUDIAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I mean, it's not for sure yet, she has to show up and I still need all sorts of tickets. I'm working on the tickets now.

BUT I AM AS SURE AS I CAN BE THAT I WILL SEE HERRRRRRR!!!

TWICE EVEN.

Also Ben. ASLO THEM TOGETHER TWICE!!!

I should probably be even more excited about being in Australia and New Zealand for this event but... It's Claudia....

I decided that I'd never be able to ~afford it. So I just need to do it. I've never traveled anywhere outside this country, except Canada (that barely counts), and I've been wanting to go to Australia forever. However I'm not going to get to see a ton. BUT WHO CARES!!

I'll See CLAUDIA FRELLING BLACK!!! WITH BEN!!! ATTHS

ALthough my life is not that exciting, so beware.

WELL, OK, Pyro winning was MUCHO EXCITING. But beyond that... well...

I don't know if I talked much about the 4 horses my best friend and I bought to train and sell. Well it's not going all that well. Partally because I'm lazy, partially because the horse market is crap and I want more than I maybe should for them. I know they are worth it. I want them to go to a good home, etc. Anyway I have one of them, the 3yo gelding VIK, leased out to a friend. My co-workers daughter. She fell for him, is in college and wants a horse again but doesn't know how the commitment thing will go so I offered her Vik in trade for paying his expenses she could have him by her. So the first day she tried to ride him I guess he dumped her 3 times. Well, i wasn't SUPER surprised because he's like that. Goofy, testy, and a bit nervous. But she persevered and got back on the next time and he was an absolute dream. And has been ever since. They even hacked down the road yesterday and he was amazing.

I knew the horse had a great base, but he needs refinement and he's only just 3 so it's not to be expected that he's amazing. Anyway, I'm expecting a check for 1500 for his purchase at some point. Her mom adores the horse too. I guess he races to the gate (he lives alone in a lovely paddock where he can see other horses) nickering at her every time she comes out to see him. WHO WOULDN'T FALL IN LOVE WITH THAT???

In other news dizzydame and I have started writing out BIG BIG BANG. 40,000 words of Cam/Vala stuck on an island/planet. They obvs fall in love, but the fun part is that hello no birth control and the possibility of rescue keeps diminishing by the day and they fall deeper in love and want to express it but don't want a baby. So they creatively start getting it on.... :P Now you all want that, I KNOW YOU DO.

Nomorewineforeddie comes back to the races on Saturday going a brisk 3.5 furlongs. I CANNOT EVEN WAIT. I LOVE THIS HORSE. he was injured and is coming back. It was looking dismal for his come back for awhile. He's had 2 bullets and now the race. I'm hoping he will be ready to defend his title in the sprint champs!

I got stung in the face (on the nose) by a wasp and it hurt. My eye swelled up 2 days later, it's still a little swollen so I took another benedryl. I had 2 a day ago and it helped. I'm hoping this will cure the rest.

I GUESS I HAD MORE TO SAY THEN I THOUGHT. I'm just wordy. As I'm sure most of you know. :P

So today my racehorse, Sol Fire - aka PYRO - was making her 20th lifetime start. She's never won before and luckily they've changed the rules on racing at Canterbury Park (minnesota not england) so that horses older than 5 can be maidens and racing. So we brought her back for the summer and she's been doing well. But still now win.

Her last 2 starts were great, best since she was a 4 year old (she's 6 now in case that wasn't obvious), but they were going long. 1 mile and 1m70yards. But either this was Bruce's plan all along, or lucky happenstance caused another long race not to be carded or left unfilled so we ended up back in our old sprint distance race. This time going 5.5 furlongs. Now I wasn't concerned not only because she runs her race every time she goes to the track, but because horses cutting back from a route to a sprint is a HUGE angle in handicapping. So I took it in stride, not really thinking that it would make a huge difference in the end. butttt

uh it made a difference were it countedCollapse )

Anyone have a lead on auctions (fandom or other) for a cause right now? My friend is just starting her animal chiropractic business up and she wants me to make her business cards. But I don't do logos... So any directional help would be, well, helpful. :) I'd love to give business to someone in fandom etc.

or if anyone on here wants to give it a go... :D

HEY LOOK AT ME POSTING THINGS.

It's a plea, however. I think I'm on a pop songs kick. DON'T JUDGE.

I really. Really, REALLY. Want a Cam/Vala vid or JOHN/AERYN would work too, for this song:



I have the mp3. IF THERE IS A WILLING SOUL.

ALSO THIS SONG WON'T GTFO OF MY HEAD:

Questions from vinegar_dog

1. Describe yourself in one word

AWESOME

2. Who would you rather be stuck in handcuffs with - Rodney or Teyla?

Uh, I don't really know. Probably Teyla. But i've never seen Atlantis. :)

3. What's your fondest memory of the Last Farscape Con in LAX?

MEETING ALL THE PEOPLE. And BEN SINGING TO USSSSSS OMFG.

4. Name one thing you haven't done that you really want to do (it cannot involve Claudia :D)

AERYN SUN... hhehe
I want to go to the Kentucky Derby. I'm just waiting for the right year. I was going to go if Take Control ran in it, but he hasn't started against since he won first out almost 3 years ago...

5. What is your greatest fear and why?

LADDERS... I don't really know why. I just hate them. And I'm frightened of them tipping when i'm on them and I have to use them some times and that sucks.

6. If you won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

no, actually. I really LOVE my job. I love the people I work with and I think I need to have something structured to do.

7. When is the last time you felt inspired?

When I RP I feel inspired. But on my own, probably a while. I've been in a creative slump recently.

THANKS FOR THE QUESTIONS BB!!!!

You all must have seen this before. My questions are from marieyotz. If you want questions from me, just ask, I shall bestow them upon you. :D

1) You have to watch one of these two things for a week straight... Is it a)Babylon 5 or b)The Locket?

WHAT A HORRID QUESTION!!!! I don't even know. one is Farscape at least. I'm sure after two weeks I MIGHT be immune to the emotions that plague me from this episode. At least John and Aeryn are adorable in it. I just really hated B5 when I watched the first 2 seasons and the beginning of S3... I'll go with The Locket.

2)The accomplishment that you're most proud of?

I made it through College in 4 years and graduated. So far that's the hardest/best thing I've done. OH and w/o debt. I worked and paid for it all while I went. My school gets no money from me though since I'm poor from hay debt now because I worked my ass off. Everyone else can too.

3) What trait to you admire most in others?

Liking Farscape is a trait, right? I think kindness is one I like a lot, because I'm lacking in it. ;) Also humor. Maybe a dash of RAGE.

4) What is one place on Earth you've never been to, but vow to visit at least once?

I REALLLLYYYYYY hope I get to Australia one day. I don't think I will. I've only been to Canada which is just like the US. Maybe it would be smarter to shoot for Mexico or something but I've always wanted to see the great barrier reef.

5) Shag/marry/get drunk with: Vala, Aeryn, Claudia

HEEEEE
Shag: Vala
Get drunk: Aeryn (probably the only way to get her to let loose.)
Marry: Claudia

6)A song you'd like to see a fanvid made to that hasn't been done/what fandom?

I don't actually have anything right now. I don't really listen to a lot of music. Just when I'm driving and the last time I was freaking out of NEEDING a vid for it schmacky0 came to my rescue. :D I'm so picky about the song really fitting the couple it's not often I get this urge. Which is why I'm perfectly happy not knowing how to Vid.

7) Your favorite thing about MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?

THERE IS NOTHING I DO NOT LOVE ABOUT YOU. I love how much you can keep the conversation going, how you love dogs, how you need to be on TF all the time, how much you love FS, that you're a lawyer because I'd never have guessed after meeting you, how much you FLAIL with meeeeeeeee. EVERYTHING.
