Spell check recognizes "boogeyman", but not "oughta". 

Who hurt you, spell check?

I was attempting to enter a writing contest, and I whipped out a story that I thought was pretty good...then I found out you had to be an exclusive paid member to enter said contest. 😞  Damn.

So now I'm stuck with some goofy prose poem that's not bad, but nowhere to put it. Well, the point is, I tried.  I have some more material now, and there's always going to be contests and submissions wanted.

Attempts to merge my two worlds have been frighteningly funny.
I'm reading a literary book that just so happens to contain the sentence, "What are your thoughts?" and I IMMEDIATELY read it in Morgana's voice in my head!

If I don't finish these 'fics, I'll never be able to get my legit work finished!

We are writing today, chickies!

Don't ask me why I said that.

Apparently, the Rice Street Cinema’s usher was rated “R” for extreme violence and strong language. He displayed both as he tossed the 12-yr-old out on his ear. The manager made it a double feature.
The diminutive critic would not be fazed. “Yeah? Well, your popcorn’s stale!”
Anyway, I decided to postpone the 'fics for a while and get back to something I can actually get money for...maybe...someday in the far, far, fucking future...hopefully.

Wish me luck, I suppose? Anyone want to read a horror story that starts in the '70s?  I got through at least a chapter and a half before I realized that I was basically rewriting Monster Squad and chucked the whole fucker in rage.  Also, don't ask me why I picked a place I've never been to, but I can assure you it's not Maine.  😛

Or perhaps you're into bitter chicklit and cats?  I love cats, personally, but I've taken some inspiration from people who don't (along with being frustrated at my CW prof) and started a story that Lifetime would say doesn't have nearly enough Christmas or shenanigans in it.  I like this one better, and it got better reception in beta.

The office was square and beige, with furniture arranged on a grid.  The man behind the desk with the perfectly arranged blotter and beige computer immaculately dressed in a beige sweater and khakis could only be named Graham Blandish.  Marie generally tolerated him more than most of her coworkers, who were behind the prank that attempted to remove “-ish” from his nameplate.  Today, however, his monochrome condescension was just too much to take.

Anyway, I'm going to be posting more regular-ish things here.  I'll try to get away from overly-specific fanfic posts for three months in a row.   The tags are up there, anyway, back from when I used to ramble on about different subjects.

Back to getting distracted by emails   swearing at the screen  writing!

I am so tired of Persona prequels.  Can we go into the future now?  Like, what's everybody doing after Ultimax?

(Plus, MC/and FeMC are dead, so we won't have to deal with them anymore! The road less taken could lead to AkiMitsu perhaps?

Ms'd it by a hair.

I don't know if I've mentioned this often, maybe on Twitter - some of you may have heard that I hate my hair.  I mean, I hate it!  When it's dirty, it's oily, and when it's clean, it's frail and tangles if you so much as blow on it. There's only so much I can do with it, and if all that wasn't bad enough, it's starting to gray.  Yay.

About the only thing I can control regarding my hair is the length.  I like to keep it short so I don't have to spend hours drying it, and dirty hair doesn't feel like it's crawling down my back.  I didn't think it was a problem, seeing as how it's MY hair, but apparently it effects my sexual preference?

My mother hates short hair on women.  She constantly remarks on it whenever we're out in public.  Thanks to celebrities like Ellen and Rosie, she's convinced that only lesbians can have short hair.  Imagine my surprise when she said as much!   I don't like long hair; I think having shorter hair makes me look closer to my age, which is already a problem when you're short with a round face.  Putting makeup on makes me look like a teen who just got into makeup.  Even if I had a baby (which is YET ANOTHER ENDLESS ARGUMENT WITH MY MOTHER), I'd just look like a teenager with a baby.  I've thought about letting my hair go completely gray, but with my luck, some new emo trend about being gray and depressed will be going around, and I'll still look like a damn teenybopper.  

So to recap, hair down to your ass = must have the D.  Short hair = butch as butch can be. 

She later amended it to saying that short hair was a signal to other lesbians - which only makes me feel like a total failure, because they aren't coming around, either.  Apparently, lipstick lesbians don't exist to my mother and Rapunzel is an instruction manual.  Clearly, this is why I'm still single!  I don't have heteronormative hair!! 

I'm cutting it anyway.  The few guys I've dated weren't turned off by it, and I don't think hair past your ass makes up for trust issues and depression.  I'm not Samson.  I don't need this shit to fuck or function.

UPDATE:  My hair is now just touching my shoulders, and I could still really go for some dick right about now.
