So basically since the last update back in May I've:

  • attended A-Kon in Dallas
  • gained a new kitty: June

  • done a whole lot of nothing
  • well except for starting a new exercise routine
  • become obsessed with Pacific Rim

June is a kitty that my mom found hiding inside the hood of her truck after a big rainstorm. Luckily she meowed very loud, so mom was aware she was in there before she started up her truck. June is incredibly hyper and so damn adorable.

I don't really feel like typing up anything else, so here, have an assortment of photos.

There's been a new addition to my household recently, and it is marimo. 5 of them!

Look, they're smiling! Anyway, marimo are just moss balls so my love for them is probably over the top, but I honestly think they are really cute. [profile] lysanderpuck/Massiel helped me decide on naming them after the Japanese group Arashi. Which was perfect since I love Arashi, and their 5 members equals the amount of marimo I have. Clockwise from the one at 12 o'clock in the above pic they are: Aiba, Sho, Ohno, Jun, and Nino. Biggest marimo for tallest Arashi member; smallest marimo for shortest member.

More pics and babbling. HELP I'M MARIMO OBSESSED. )

Copy/pasting some recent tumblr entries.

(For entire post, click on images for full view.)

Before and after of kitchen at New House. Before pic is with flash, after pic without—for a reason. Previously the cabinet color, plus that row of cabinets you can see on the top left of first pic made the kitchen very dim and dreary looking (the kitchen is in the middle of the house, btw, so there are no windows to bring in any sort of natural light). That old wall color was a bad choice as well.

Painted the cabinets (and removed that one row of cabinets, adding a light fixture there), swapped out all the hardware for new silver handles (omfg the old ones were hideous), painted the walls a new color, now its so much brighter and nice. The cabinets match the counter surface better too!

More Arpakasso shots and random pics from New House. )
