Things that I want to happen:
a) For my old house to finally close, so that we can move on with our lives.
b) Kellogg's to not go on a possibly strike or lock down, because the timing is horrible.
c) For my body to kindly piss off. 3+ week period, and cramps bad enough to make me really nauseous.

This season's anime should be all out by now, and it looks like I'll be sticking with 3 shows this time: Sakamichi no Apollon, Tsuritama, Polar Bear Cafe and continuing watching Hunter X Hunter. As for TV shows, I'm definitely watching a handful this season, so at least I'm being kept entertained. Both Game of Thrones and the Borgias have returned for their 2nd seasons, Community should be wrapping up season 3 soon, Adventure Time and Legend of Korra. \O/  The problem with watching Game of Thrones and the Borgias: Sometimes the episodes are leaked out a week or so earlier, which is GREAT for watching and being ahead of everyone else, not so good for being stuck waiting 2 weeks for a new episode.

I've been spending the last few weeks, trying to recover all the files I lost when my 1TB hard drive crashed and burned on me, but having a monthly download limit with Rogers really does make things a challenge of patience. Hopefully in June we can switch to a different isp and maybe even get UNLIMITED DOWNLOAD LIMIT, god I don't even remember what those days were like anymore.

My female crested geckos have been laying eggs like champs for the last 2 months, since I had to put my male in their tank for a week while I fixed his tank (thanks cats, love you too). So far between the 2 they've laid 8 eggs, some which should be hatching early May through to the beginning of July. My sister has already been promised first picks, but I'm honestly not sure why she wants one, as she'll hopefully be heading off to New Brunswick in September for University. 2-3 babies have also been called for, by a couple of my sister's friends and the rest  I'll be keeping for myself. GIRLS, THIS IS THE ONLY TIME I'LL EVER LET YOU BREED SO ENJOY IT WHILE IT LASTS.

May's turning out to be a busy month coming up. I'll be going back to class (ENG3U) instead of self study, my birthday is on the 1st, Avengers is out on the 4th (but I maybe waiting till the Sunday to see it), free comic book day is the day after ( I WILL END ANYONE WHO SPOILS ME FOR THE AVENGERS WHILE I'M GETTING FREE BOOKS :<) and on the 18th I should be donating blood presuming I'm not sick. OH AND I CAN'T FORGET MEN IN BLACK 3 on May 25th. Yes May, you will be good for my fandom loving heart.

Someone needs to get me off bodyartforms, so many plugs on my wish list, so little money. Maybe when the house is finally sold I'll order myself a new pair of plugs since it's been a year with my blue glass ones. Now if only I could decide between this, this, this or this.
*w* I'm also on the look out for a 16g right nose stud with an emerald on it, but so far no luck unless I downsize to 18g. :|

Either I'm covered in bug bites, or my cats may have fleas. Really hoping it's just bug bites, but I did hear that the previous tenant of this apartment had dogs. If it fleas, I won't be able to touch them for weeks because of my sensitive skin and flea treatments. /SIGH/ Back to covering myself in calamine lotion, I guess.

Things that have been driving me batty since my last post
  • My old place was to close March 30th, the insurance was cancelled, hydro was called for last payment and we were moving the day before.
  • 2 days before moving we get a call from our lawyer, who told us that the buyers for the house don't have enough money and to get an extension until the following Thursday.
  • Get a call today from our lawyer, who tells us that the buyers YET gain don't have enough money.
  • CUE IN PANIC MODE. We need that money to settle my uncle's debts, mortgage dues and because we can't afford to keep the house anymore.
  • Because the buyers left it 2 days before closing, if they don't get the money by Tuesday, we're be suing their asses one way or another.
  • My external hard drive decided that it wants to format itself instead of functioning correctly. I'm not in the mood to lose 350GB+ of data. Thankfully with the use of a few programs, I've managed to recover all my files except for my 23GB of music. That's been causing me the biggest of woes.
  • Physics exam April 10th at 8 am. WHY DID I EVEN AGREE TO THAT EARLY IN THE MORNING AGAIN
Good news is that we moved in super quick for all the stuff we brought, and we've settle in mostly. AND GAME OF THRONES SEASON 2.

I'm going to deny spending an entire day reading this Sherlock tennis AU. Everything is perfect and nothing hurt.

So on great news, we found an apartment to move into and will be doing so by the end of March. It's in an older house downtown in a really neat area and for the price we're paying, dang do we get a lot of space. While I'm sad to see all my hard work in decorating this house so, I'm looking forward to starting on the apartment (and we got permission to paint which is A++)

On the bad news, I'm stuck downsizing my 45 gallon fish tank, our lawyer still hasn't finished his end of the work and citi financia still hasn't made up their mind if we'll be charged $53,000+ for the loan or not. I wish they'd make a decision as of last week, because my oldest cat may need a check up at a vet's soon and I don't have the money to deal with this right now.

Because of how busy I've been for the last couple of weeks, I've seriously been neglecting my physics coursework. In a distance dreamworld I was hoping to have completed this course by January when I started up, but real life got in the way so hard and now I'm just scraping by to motivate myself into finishing this last unit and bullshitting the exam like a boss. While I know I could enjoy self study courses, I loathe the way it's taught in these books and by taught I mean not taught.

Oh I'm sure I'm missing out on a few things to write about, but my eye balls are twitching from my 1.5 hours of sleep thanks to swollen tonsils and a killer back pain. A+ Off to bed early this time self.

On Monday I woke up after 3 hours of sleep to have just missed our re estate agent calling saying that there's  possible showing in the early morning and that she'll stop by to check on me before they come. Cue me panicking because the family left a WONDERFUL mess in the house (laundry, dishes, shoveling the driveway, cat box, make all the beds, tidy up, sweep and mop), which thankfully I had just enough time to clean up and not pass out before the visitors came.

Anyway the visitor brought her agent, she loved the house and strangely enough they didn't even want to look in the basement? idgi. She said she'd call back later with an offer, without even thinking about. When my mother got home from work I told her about the showing and BAM not even 15 minutes later the same visitors come through again and within an hour they were already putting on offer through.


So now we have less than 45 days to pack everything up, find a new place, figure out how we're going to juggle the money around until the will is settled (would it be believable if I said that our lawyer just went to the courts this week to get my mother appointed heir to all this, agkalga;l) and actually move.

PS apartment hunting SUCKS.

I also finally got my blood donating card from the blood services this week, and my sister was betting I would be A or B, while I was calling on my blood being O because of I tended to have inherited more features from my father. And of course I'm right (O-) and my sister threw a hissy fit since she hates losing to me for the smallest of things.

I think I'll make a small update to my fic rec post this weekend at some point too. :3

Dear Sherlock fandom, particular the ones in the #believeinsherlock movement: ALL THE AWARDS FOR YOU, ALL OF THEM.

Yesterday the coroner's report for my uncle's death finally arrived. Just not with news that I could at least accept and make peace with. The report says that yes he died of chronic heart disease, severe anemia (which he had blood work done at a walk-in clinic but they never told him the results), colon cancer and a lung infection. But it also stated that the coroner believes he could still be around today if the clinic had bothered sent him a letter saying "GET TO THE HOSPITAL ASAP" when they couldn't get a hold of him as they didn't ask for his new phone number or contacted his emergency contact (which is my mother). SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY... just /FLIPS ALL THE BLOODY TABLES/ (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

If citi financial decides to reinstate the mortgage again, my mother is seriously going to ask a lawyer for advice about this because I swear there's no way this should be allowed anyway. /crosses fingers that they just leave us alone/

Depressing news aside: I've been pretty busy the last 2 weeks with several house showings, physics homework (to which I am a master procrastinator of) and cleaning the house constantly because my family does love to make a mess for me. At least our agent is SUPER CONFIDENT about selling this house, and possibly getting it to go into a bidding war~

Today was #TweetYourSherlockTee day and I did manage to threaten my useless camera enough to function for 30 seconds I mean lovingly encourage it to work /cough/

The green one is my #believeinsherlock movement shirt, which is just made with those cheap fabric paints in a bottle that I'm super fond of because if I manage to screw it up using those I should be written off as a lost cause. OH MAN, I just noticed how FIERCE the glare on it looks, I swear it doesn't look that shiny in real life, akgalg;. Oh and my consulting detective and Moriartea shirts are above. The next time I get a spare shirt, I'm super tempted to either make a DEATH FRISBEE!Deerstalker one or make I AM SHERLOCKED.

Doing laundry has been made interesting by my 2nd oldest cat, who can't stay out of the dryer long enough for me to fold all the clean clothes. If I try to move her out, she gets all HISSY and the CLAWS COME OUT. :| Why can't I have well behaved cats: Abby (the white one below) is a professional shit disturber, Lucifer (my black one) is one super needy/paranoid cat with a LOUD MOUTH and Lucky (the oldest, and only male cat) is a food stealer. ps flash never looks good on cat's eyes, asdgjlk


And I'm off to go do semi-productive things, just not sure what of yet. /living the high life apparently/
