It occurs to me that I've spent half of my life assuming that Mary Anne and Wanda from Goodbye Earl (Dixie Chicks) begin a romantic relationship after they reunite mid-song. They plot murder together, start a business together, and even go on vacation together. How romantic! I think I just assumed they were as close to married as two grown women could be back in 2000. In retrospect, this is probably not the subtext that I was supposed to get out of the song.

I received an email last night which politely said that I am not suitable for a particular job at a local firm. This morning, that company's HR department called to ask for a phone interview. I think someone goofed on the hiring process. Oops?

Dolphins!

Cut for image )

Doll-finzzzz~! I'm giving the image hosting site Imgur a try at a friend's recommendation, after ranting hardcore at them about Photobucket being a butt. (Dreamwidth, I love you, and I am 100% going to store more images here and love it, especially for accessibility, but you currently don't have the image organization tools that I require. I have well over five hundred pictures of crocheted things alone, and don't care to try and sort through all of them every time I want to get to a Dreamsheep icon, for example.)

Anyway, these are all of the dolphins I've made so far for ICON, the local SFF con, one of whose staff members commissioned me to make a little somethin' for the Con Benefactor bags. They only need seventeen, but I'm like, why stop there? So I'm currently up to twenty-six, and there's still another week-and-a-half before the con for me to make more.

Lots of colors were specifically requested, or I probably (definitely) would've gone with all pale blue/periwinkle/gray/vaguely-real-dolphin-color-ish. (The color of the four light-blue-ish dolphins in the top of the picture is listed as "lavender" on the yarn. I mean, it looks a lot more blue-ish to me, but there's something like a 25-50% chance I'm a carrier for red/green colorblindness, so.) I think I'm kinda glad for that request, because it's actually made using the same pattern over and over again less boring :P I love how naturally the yarn tends to stripe, too.

\o/ Pun success!

I've finally found it: The perfect pun to use for romantic orientations in my Potions collection!

Roman-tonic :D

I gave serious thought to just adding "oil" to the end of romantic orientations, but it just didn't sit right with me. I'm definitely glad I gave myself the time to find something else.

Now I just gotta find something good and punny for gender identities. Gender Fluid and Genderflux Capacitor only cover two identities, and there's a lot more out there to think about.

Having realized because of a fic that I spend a lot of time cheating at/faking eye contact, I have come to the conclusion that I would probably recognize faces better if I spent more time actually looking at them.

The things you inadvertently learn/figure out because of fic, I tell ya.
