I feel like I'm dying. It's just a cough and I'm exaggerating, but I'd really like to stop now. Thing is, I know it's just that my body's trying to get the freakin' mucus out of my lungs, but it's getting stuck somewhere and I can't spit it out or blow it out my nose. Yeah, I know, gross, so did not need to know that. Yeah, well, you do.

In other news, I went to church last week. Not this week because I'm so much more sick now and kind of overslept, but last Sunday night was one of the best nights I've had in a while. It started with me crying on the floor and ended with me walking out the door with my head held high and a smile on my face. That's a long story for tomorrow when I'm not extremely tired but still up because my cough is keeping me awake.

This coming Sunday, I will be going to church no matter how my health is, though I hope it's better by then. I don't want to cough all over everybody.

Oh, and I got this cute little nightgown with Tinkerbell on it. I feel all girly and ridiculous, but I love this thing.

Wow, I just had the best sleep I've had in a while. For the past week or so I've been waking up every few hours, but this time I slept straight through the night. THE NIGHT! As in I didn't do the vampire thing I usually do. I have seen the sun and it is bright! I wonder if I'll catch fire when I go out.

In addition to the last RP I mentioned, I also joined Angel Grove, a pan-fandom RP set in the Power Rangers universe, post-Zordon. I grabbed up Chloe Sullivan, because it's so hard to find an RP without her. I also have Kira Ford, who I love. She's a little reminiscent of Kimberly from the first few seasons, which I guess is the reason for the fanon of them being related, but she's still very much her own character. She's anything but a valley girl, except for this one time with a meteor rock (ZING!), but I think they have the same kind of spirit.

Anyway, if there's a character you like who seems to be always taken, think about joining Angel Grove. Yes, I know, Power Rangers, but I doubt it's going to be at all like the shows.

On a side note...I'm not sure how much I like the Chloe in the Destination: Eternity RP. It's probably just because I'm anal about capitalization and all that, but we haven't gotten to the third person part yet. Still, I think Chloe would use proper capitalization if she were commenting on something like a blog or forum. It's her nature as a writer, and I say that as a writer myself.

I've found that I really like roleplaying and writing Lana. Yes, I know, "Lanaughgrrbarf," but I really do. And everybody has told me how much they like my Lana. Actually, they like my interpretation of all my characters. I think other than the comments about Lana, the best compliment I've had is how much they like my Clark, and "it's so hard to find a good one!"

Anyway, speaking of Lana, I have some writing to work on. Comment at will.

Well, isn't that just how I like my peas: frozen into large clumps of greeness.

Yes, ignore my random beef with my veggies, pun totally intended.

I really wish I was better in the illustration department. I have this nifty idea for an original story, one that I would only do for fun and wouldn't try to sell. The only thing is it involves anthropomorphic animals, also known as bipedal animals or furries, so pictures of actors and actresses don't do it for graphics. I got the idea months ago after watching Chicken Little. In fact, I'm watching it again now, trying to get a handle on what I'd orginally invisioned. Anyway, I think I've come up with the character would would be at the center, but I'm trying to think of what kind of look a site could have without me being able to draw something of relation. It stumps me.

I deleted all my fanfiction challege communities on LJ, with the exception of the ones I mod. I'm not doing that on IJ because I have very little problems from IJers. I question if I should finish The Reefside Diaries. I probably will, because there are a few people interested, but I'll probably only post it under flock.

Blah blah, yap yap, dribble dribble dribble. Goodnight.

I have the hiccups.

The skin under my purity ring is itching. I wonder if it means anything. I can just hear Him now... "I'm God, not a magician! Get out and meet people!"  Becuase sometimes, He likes to talk like Leonard McCoy, along with just about any other character I know. It's probably just some random itching, though.

I haven't been writing much, but maaking icons instead. Whenever inspiration dries up I usually switch words for images. It usually seems to work. Of course, sometimes I just play Kingdom Hearts II or some other game. Not that I have all that many games. The only other game I have is Budokai 3, and then whatever Nintendo games my brothers have, but that's only when they've brought the GameCube. I want a Wii so badly it's not funny.

I just got the first Superman movie from Netflix. I love them so much. I just wish I could afford to rent more movies at once.

*gasp* A post not about Smallville? Who knew I could do it?

I tried dying hair a darker version of my natural brown. Thing is, it turned out more black than brown. I'm sure if my mother sees it she'll make some kind of smart-aleck remark about me looking just like her now. My only solace is I have Terri Hatcher hair, circa Lois & Clark.

What? It's not Smallville.

Holy crap! My friends page is covered in [livejournal.com profile] chloe_otp! [livejournal.com profile] flareonfury had a field day!

I tried to save Lana, but I only prolonged her suffering.

Yesterday I got a Chloelicious haircut. I wish I had a camera, but it's cut like hers was in the first couple of seasons. I'm not a blonde, but then again neither is she! Not naturally, anyway. I don't think I'll ever go blonde, except by wig. My poor hair couldn't handle it.

According to a quiz in one of the ladies magazines I pick up on the weekly grocery trip, I should eat more fish to make losing weight easier. I also heard about something called the flat belly diet. Apparently there are certain foods that can help with that, which is something I'm very interesting. I've always had a problem with my belly. I almost punched this one girl because she asked if I was pregnant.

Oh, and I got detox tea. Not the yummiest, but we will see if it helps me.

I think [livejournal.com profile] strangevisitor7 has won some kind of award for the longest comment thread not related to religion on my LJ. Coolness! (Oh, by the way, got that DVD. Thinking over possibilities now.)

Last night I was looking for my iPod and couldn't find it. Looked everywhere I would usually put it, and even some places I wouldn't (like around the toilet). Nothing. So I ask Dean-ish!bro (my new nickname for the horndog sleeping on the couch) if he's seen it. Nope, hasn't seen it. Dad called not long after to tell me about the eclipse (which was really smokin' cool, by the way), and asked him if he'd seen it. He said the last place he saw it was the desk, which is where I pretty much keep it. He suggested I call my mom, because since her boyfriend's computer crapped out on them, she's been coming over here to check e-mail. First thing I thought was either the guy's kid took it, or sensitive!bro "borrowed it". So I called. Nope, they didn't know either. So there I was, staring up at the almost-eclipsed moon, wondering what I was going to do, when 6.3 seconds later (okay, I wasn't counting), my mom called back. Turns out, Sam-ish!bro (my new nickname for 2nd-born!bro, mainly because he's the second brother and more moral) "borrowed it". Not that I mind the borrowing, just that he didn't ask first. Now he'll never borrow even if he asks. Ha!

It seems like a lot of people have the flu right now. Glad I don't, but I hope everybody else gets better.

I missed pretty much everything on tv tonight because my brother wanted me to watch Pearl Harbor. He can't believe I've never seen it because he thinks it's the best movie ever made. Maybe it's just not my kind of movie, because it's still playing and I'm bored out of my mind. I mean no disrespect for the military, of course. I mean, the sis is in the Navy and I have a cousin in the Marines. I just...don't find the movie entertaining. I'd rather have watched Ghost Whisperer, Moonlight and Numb3rs. And if I turn it off now, I might be able to catch Power Rangers Dino Thunder. Yes, I know Power Rangers are dorky, but I love that particular incarnation. I wish I could have the whole season on DVD, along with Ninja Storm, SPD, and maybe Mystic Force.

So let's see...I've established that I like the supernatural/paranormal/sci-fi shows, along with the crime shows like CSI and Law & Order, and also shows involving superheroes. Go figure.

Lots of stuff.

Fixed my sleep. Can still get a good amount of rest while still getting up to watch Angel and Charmed. And I'll be able to get up and get a head start to North Greenville U. Yep, no more vamp hours for me...with no intentions to reference Angel.

Bought a Permanently Insane account at InsaneJournal. Also got Neflix. The first of Smallville: Season 1 is on its way. It's too bad I can only afford to have one at a time. Maybe when I get an actual job I'll upgrade.

Also got flamed for no reason. Yay. So I made an icon (which I'm currently using) to explain why I want Chlois to be, even though I know it won't. I don't compare Lois to Chloe. I compare Lois to Lois. Chloe just happens to hold the opinion of having a relationship with the boss that I think Lois should have, even a young Lois. It would do Lois more justice as a character if Chloe was the real iconic Lois. If the person who flamed me is reading, please, leave me alone. Next time, I'll name you publicly.

Hm. I should probably update my profile. It's probably outdated.

So one minute I'm laughing to myself about how I'm apparently in love with my toaster (thanks [livejournal.com profile] star_sign), the next minute I'm throwing up everything I've eaten today.

Apparently, I have a gag vomit reflex. Yay for Campbell's Cream of Broccoli Soup.

So I was thinking about what my first post should be for the new year. Most people just say "Happy New Year!" and that's all, or just write something normal. I wanted to be unique. So I thought it over and came up with what I think is a pretty unique idea. The following is a conversation I wrote between me and the characters I usually write about, aka the voices in my head. Be prepared for the weirdest New Year's Day post ever.

Okay, I'm done.

Booya!

I changed my userinfo, and I have to admit I totally modeled it after [livejournal.com profile] orphanage's userinfo. It now features Cyborg and Raven, shippage that developed in my time roleplaying Raven when I still ran that crazy gender-confused roleplay. [livejournal.com profile] ferretgirl_1124 played Cy back then. Actually, that's how we became friends. The roleplay, I mean, not Cy and Rae. Before them was Arsenal and Wykkyd Lady (aka Selene!), and before that was Speedy and Babe Flash (in case you didn't get it, that's the fem version of Kid Flash). And in case you didn't know...Speedy and Arsenal are the same guy. Ah, the good old days, before the whole thing got too complicated. All of it was good for me, though, even the seemingly bad things. Because of it, I'm learning to take responsibility for my actions and stop blaming other people or Satan for tripping me up. I learned that there are certain things I just can't do because of my weakness. I learned that sometimes the most loving thing someone can do is confront you and/or leave you. And (probably most importantly) I learned that although God uses people and certain means in life, I need to be careful that I don't start trusting those people or means to support me and supply for my needs instead of Him.

Anyway, the icon is from a challenge I started but never finished. I'm thinking of finishing it up, even if not through [livejournal.com profile] titan_100. I also have a Shego claim from [livejournal.com profile] kimpossible100 I never finished. I'll probably do that one too, at my own pace. Sure, they won't count toward a banner, but...it's just a banner!

With that, I should really start working on something important...like my book!

Habakkuk 1:5

"Look among the nations, and see;
wonder and be astounded.
For I am doing a work in your days
that you would not believe if told.


I know this word was meant for Judah back around 640-615 B.C., but it just hit me for some reason. "I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told."

...wonder what that means...

I like Albert Einstein. He said things like "Never underestimate your own ignorance" and "When all think alike, no one thinks very much."

I like G.K. Chesterton. He said things like "If there were no God, there would be no Atheists" and "Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."

I like Shakespeare. He said things like "The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose" and "I am not bound to please thee with my answers."

I like C. S. Lewis. He said things like "I have found a desire within myself that no experience in this world can satisfy; the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world" and "God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."

Why exactly am I saying all this? I'm not sure. I was just up and thought I'd say something. And use my nifty Snoopy icon.

But seriously, I can finally say I am at peace about things. Not that everything is "all good", because there is a lot of bad. I am at peace, though, because God is going to take care of it and I'm not going to worry about it. Not saying I'm not going to pray about it; I already have been. God spoke through one of John Piper's messages, and He says I can pester Him about stuff ^_^ For some odd reason, that makes me smile. Maybe I'll post more about that later, but now I need sleep.
