You were born during a Waning Gibbous moon

This phase occurs right after a full moon.

- what it says about you -

You love to let people in on the story of how things come together. You know the background of ideas and have a deep understanding of things others just touch the surface of. You can surprise people with your wide variety of knowledge, and they'll remember and appreciate you for it.

What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at Spacefem.com

So I'm gonna do this meme thing where I post the first sentence of the first post in each of the month on LJ. I'm going to do the public entries, tho.

January: "Welcome to the new decade! Over the past few days I have devoured the entirety of the current Black Dagger Brotherhood books, finished my first draft of Sugar Melts, lost my temper at the cat, seen Princess and the Frog for the third time, Sherlock Holmes last night, made a snow angel, and trudged through slush."

February: "Yesterday, I met up with a photographer friend for breakfast, and then we went wandering around the Botanical Gardens."

March: "Last night was pretty much an existential mess for me, because I tried writing the counter-Victorientalism article for Allegra (of Steampunk Magazine) and I just ended up so goddamn angry."

April: "So, in between Steampunk World's Fair and WisCon, I've decided to take the train or bus in between since I do have ten days of fuck-all."


June: "So, I sold a steampunk short story to Expanded Horizons =)"

July: "Seriously, book publishing/distributing industry, WE HAVE GONE THROUGH THIS BEFORE."

August: "Hi folks! Sitting with Tariq and Pat today, listening to them talk while we should be writing, and I will be delivering you a Sunday Linkfest!"

September: "Because I've been commenting on various LJs to see if I'll get taken to the Facebook/Twitter settings page, and so far, every time I do, whether it's a friend's LJ, or LJ comm, I've been taken to the page."

October: "So, yeah. Class, then went to the lecture for the class I TA for, then hung out."

November: "So today I woke up? And realized I had nothing to do, really, besides write for NaNo. I'd already accomplished about 2k last night and I thought, I could go a couple more K today. Did I mention I'd also written two response papers last night before embarking on the novel writing?"

December: "Hey, f-lists? Particularly those of you in school? I'm looking for an article which apparently isn't available on any database my school can access, so I was wondering if someone could do me a favour and check this out?"

I'm not sure what these lines say about my year, but hey, it was fun!

So, it's kinda occurred to me, while chatting to [livejournal.com profile] the_afterlight, during which it came out that I want to ask a girl out, he'd never realized I'm bisexual (or that I identify as pansexual) all this while, and it was something he should have known. It's not really a big deal to me, but I figure that should take this opportunity to do this meme:

Ask me a question about something you feel you should know about me, but don't, for whatever reason.

I'm sort of yoinking this from [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics who did hers in a brilliant autobiographical way but I'm too lazy atm for anything other than straight answers.

Ask away, f-list.

This has been posted by four different people on my f-list from four completely different sections of my life.

If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

I mean, that should go without saying, but what the hey. <3

01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their Livejournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had at the moment, not what you want to show people.


Shit, do I really have to explain myself? I was either googling something, or saw the link on a blog, or something, but I came across this link to a World Animal Day picture fest. I don't remember the exact location of the original. This baby tapir was there. I made it my background. <3

From my f-list:

[livejournal.com profile] kiwi_grrl's post on how to have a queer-friendly heterosexual wedding.

[livejournal.com profile] ghastlycomic: the artist of the now defunct Ghastly's Ghastly Comic shows off his fierce pride with his partner.

Admire the intelligence of university students alongside [livejournal.com profile] cephiedvariable.

[livejournal.com profile] kiwi_grrl's review on a movie called I Can't Think Straight.

[livejournal.com profile] nolan_ash's twofer on gender-bending, gender-transgressions and embracing one's own identity without getting neatly boxed.

From blogs around the place:

A Malaysian-made documentary on Malay-Muslim transwomen. Formerly posted at TransGriot, cross-posted at Racialicious.

Cycads' encounter with ugly-ass Orientalism. I personally have yet to meet a guy who openly objectifies my body based on my race, but I know the "submissive Asian girl" image persists. As a result, I pretty much hate seeing the word "submissive". Which makes no sense because in a BDSM relationship, I'm more likely to be the sub. Bah. But yeah. PLEASE READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT THE WAY YOU CONSUME ASIAN STUFF, K?

tigtog of Hoyden about Town discusses rape myth acceptance An obvious must-read.

Melissa of Shakesville points out the egregrious absense of the threat of rape when it comes to being a token female in a group in a TV show. While it's nice to not be reminded that having female genitals and just walking out in public is pretty much an invitation to be raped, the lack of the threat isn't exactly realistic. She also discusses what else triggered her in the Watchmen movie (she'd been warned beforehand of the rape scene) and the laughter that scene evoked, which is blatant rape apologia. I'll be watching The Watchmen when it comes out on DVD. If I ever get around to it. (I got my stylized violence in Sin City and Hellsing. I don't need more of it.)

Feministing's Jessica Valenti is getting married. Obviously there're problems with partaking of this crazy institution which has historically been sexist. So of course she's going to talk about her reconciliations with it and stuff. And of course, people have to criticize her criticism. And call her Bridezilla.

And this was yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] salzara_tirwen:

You Are a Crocodile
You are incredibly wise and knowledgeable.

In fact, your wisdom is so deep that it sometimes consumes you.

People are intrigued by you, but you find few people intriguing.

You are not a very social creature.

You are cunning. You enjoy deceiving people a little.

You are able to find balance in your life, and you can survive anything.

Sorry there wasn't more of substance.

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

Transgender Issues - I'm not transgendered (clearly), but I feel that of all the minority groups, this is one of those whichs get ignored the most. They don't fit in our neat categories of "masculine" and "feminine", and their very existence tends to be transgressive, so they really catch all the shit. A person is transgendered? Oh, no wonder that awful thing happened to them. It's difficult for someone trans to find a job in so many places, that the only job they have left to them is sex work (so it ties in to another pet cause of mine, sex worker rights), and it's simply not fair to ignore their existence. I don't know a lot of transpeople, but through my reading I'm kept aware of their existence. It's frustrating for me because sometimes I don't know what to do to help them, but I try to do my little teaspoon thing by highlighting transphobia here on my LJ, when I can.

Cheese Fries - I'm actually not fond of poutine, but I know why I remind her of this XD When I passed through Mississauga a couple years back on my way home to Malaysia, Zip and I spent a night at a hotel (gosh that sounds dirty) to hang out. It was the first time ever that I met her! It was pretty wicked ^^ We had cheese fries. Which were nummy. YAY!

Fairies - I honestly have no idea what Zippy was thinking when she wrote this. I do have a cup where if you pour in hot water, the leaves will fade to reveal a fairy bending over a toadstool. I bought it at a Beltaine fair a few years back, at a table run by [livejournal.com profile] nosidagi and [livejournal.com profile] tenchan. I also have an art book by Amano where he depicts all sorts of fairies.

EDIT: Zip reminded me of the poem I wrote for her in 2003 (it took me a while to find it). It was inspired by listening to a song on the Escaflowne movie soundtrack (track 9), the basic premise being a narrator minding his/her own business when suddenly fairies rush through the clearing. It's sort of weird considering the music track is accompanies a battle scene. However, Zippy was also, back then, a huge fan of Dilandau (can't blame her, Dilandau was psychotic-cool, AND gender-bending in the anime series).

Gold Flakes - This loses me more than the Fairies one does....

EDIT: OK, Zip had to remind me of this one too. Back in 2005, when I went home for Christmas, my family gave me this beautifully little glass ball pendant. Inside it was water with gold flakes which they'd bought for me in Australia. However, me being an idiot, I'd packed it into my check-in luggage. There was a narrow window at my stopover in Hong Kong - thirty minutes to get from one end of the airport to the next for my flight. Sam and I rushed there, and while we did get onto the flight, our luggage didn't. So when we arrived at JFK airport in New York, we were told that our luggage would arrive with the next plane.

Leftover luggage, I guess, tends to be subjected to a more thorough check (and no, locking my luggage doesn't do diddly squat, three bag locks of mine have been broken by US security), and I lost my jewelry. (Sam lost her new sunglasses, a new bag, all sorts of computer cords, a hard drive and something else.) Since then, I've told my dad that long stopovers are fine as long as I know they're actually on the same plane with me. I mean, I can see why they would find it pretty enough to steal - it was a very unique piece of jewellery and could fetch a pretty high price, but still, it had huge sentimental value to me. If it had been any random expensive thing I'd bought for myself with no thought at all, I wouldn't have been so upset, but there were gold flakes in this one, and my parents really hit the ball out of the park with this present (usually they can barely guess what my tastes are).

Airport Stopovers - AHAHAHAH! I do a lot of these. ^^; An example can be found here. I do these at least twice a year, when I fly home and fly back to Canada. When I was younger I would ask my dad for a single-stop flight from KL to Newark, which was a 23-hour-straight flight except for a one-hour stopover in Dubai, and then I'd usually have to wait several hours before leaving Newark for a two hour flight into Halifax. I liked it a lot because there was a deli there with a killer Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. I've stopped over in Vancouver (where I first met [livejournal.com profile] palmer_kun, Ottawa, Hong Kong, Chicago, New York, Stockholm, Dubai and Japan. All without actually visiting any of these cities.

A co-worker helped me get my care package from Superstore today. Yay!

I made a cheesecake and brought it to work - lots of people liked it. I think I know what I did wrong with the crust, which was totally crumbly.

This weekend, I've got to figure out what to make for James' potluck, and it's James' birthday today, happy birthday James!

I got some actual writing done on Sunday with James and John, which was really nice. Better yet, the stuff I produced didn't sound like they sucked!

I need to clear my little table so I can start eating on it again, and continue my costume project. The big pieces of the dress are all done - just need to do some hemming. I'll go to the Bead Pod when I can to get some chain links for the straps, and hopefully she'll also have the kind of tear-shaped pearl beads I need for the sash. I'm still wondering how to decorate the sash though =/

I am so irritated! I don't know why [livejournal.com profile] death_row_girl went all psycho over me and [livejournal.com profile] lady_zip having a little fun.

Hey and know what? [livejournal.com profile] gerk told me that [livejournal.com profile] foxymardy told [livejournal.com profile] eiko82 and [livejournal.com profile] fayenatic that I got caught talking to [livejournal.com profile] tenchan and backstabbing [livejournal.com profile] refined_mirages. That is SO not true! Don't let me hear about that again or and I'm gonna tear off their head and s*** down their neck hole!

What sucks is that Wednesday was my birthday and nobody noticed or gave me presents or wished me happy birthday :-(.

Oh and [livejournal.com profile] zips_bunny_farm went around saying how they saw me talking crap about [livejournal.com profile] castusalbuscor. And yeah. You might guess I don't give a flying f*** what they think anymore. I'm over that.

Oh yeah. I went to gaming group with folks the other day but [livejournal.com profile] infi_chan is getting favors from the game master. That totally sucked!

And also yesterday at school I got in a huge fight with [livejournal.com profile] kiwi_grrl.
