A marginally interesting update.  
Good gravy. It's been months since I've posted in this thing. I should really get back in the habit. That being said, here are some quick little tidbits of what's been going on with me lately. At least the marginally interesting stuff.

- Heading to NEO NOHCON this weekend. I'm excited to go and I'll be selling special shirts to benefit the charity that the con is involved with. Should be a good time.

- I'm still waiting for a few friends to confirm they're coming with me... but with any luck I'll be going to see Dimmu Borgir at the Worcester Palladium next month. I fully expect to come back from that show screaming "Hail Satan!" provided I have a voice left to scream it with.

- I am exercising mountains of willpower and restraint to wait until after Anime Boston to buy myself an XBox360 and Rock Band. I've put this off as long as I can, but the launch sequence has been initiated.

- I'd seen it and heard about it around conventions for years, but I finally succumbed to trying out GAIA Online. It helped that my friend Alyssa had already made a little avatar for me. Who knew that I'd enjoy a silly little anime avatar dress-up "game?" If there are any other Gaians reading this, feel free to say hi to Baron Mookie or Evil Mookie... and feel free to get me the ridiculously expensive items on my wishlist. Hee hee.

- I've gotten the itch to expand my horizons creatively. I love doing Dominic Deegan but my brain has been hopping around as of late. So I wrote the first issue of a comic book idea that's been banging around my head for the past few months. It's only a first draft but I'm relatively happy with the way it turned out. Now if only I could get around to doing the first draft of issue two...

- I need to get new website design ideas to Hawk! What the fratz am I waiting for?! AUGH!

- Rascal remains a very aptly named cat. At this very moment she's eating a cardboard box... and now she's looking at my feet. Hungrily.

And that's everything marginally interesting going on with me that I feel like sharing on the internet right now. With any luck this silly post will get me back into the habit of updating this thing.

Ah, good to hear about Rascal again.

What a coincidence, you're forced onto Gaia as I'm leaving.

Man. I haven't done anything on Gaia for a while. I've got a character that's been around there since '03, though. I might be able to hook you up with something.

I spend countless hours on Gaia online roleplaying. If you ever feel the itch to roleplay and you want a place that's full of people who actually know how to write a proper sentence, along with paragraphs and that have good characters, look up me up here: http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/gaia-commerce/the-silver-door-accepting-read-the-rules-all-of-them/t.35078823_1/

Also, my screen name is Insane Cricket.

Love Dominic Deegan, and I really need to catch up on it. ^^;;

I don't do Gaia, but Dimmu Borgir's on my list! (4/18/08, Albuquerque)
Glad to see you back on the LJ, loving the DD storyline.

!!!!!! When you do get Rock Band, please let us know your GamerTag. :D Rock Band is awesome!!!!!!

Also, yes, please, do keep posting as you have time. { tosses a mouse to Rascal }

Had no idea you played Gaia too.

And my cat is also named Rascal (and earns it... but don't all cats?)

Totally been on Gaia a while but for like a whole year my laptop rejected it so lately my friends fixed it up and hooked me up... I like the little avvies running round there extremely cute and addictive to watch those little legs work...

But everyone knows that cardboard is the natural prey of cats! They get no nutritious value from meat.

Every time you talk about cons, I get sad, because they're so far away from me and I can't go.
Welcome to Gaia!!! It makes you want to spend money!
Catherine: Hollysayswhat?fansquee on March 6th, 2008 11:25 am (UTC)
Cats looooove cardboard boxes.... mine has shredded (and I mean left trails of it in the house) countless boxes...

I'm on Gaia.... but honestly don't see what the fuss is about, but I'm SmeggyGirl on it....

And good luck with the other bits of inspiration!!! Go with it!

Well, it sure sounds like you've bounced back from the Con Plague. ^_^

It was lovely (as always) seeing you at Katsucon. I sure like their artist alley better than the warehouse-like concrete hangar/batcave they have everybody in at Otakon.

I hear Phil Foglio came over to your table. Woot!!

I recently started using my Gaia account again after a four year hiatus. Man, inflation's gone through the roof. Back in MY day, people quested for a year to get the 40K for a set of fairy wings! And they had to surf uphill, both ways, in the SNOW! Now, I can price an ugly-ass holiday item from '03 for 600K and find a buyer in about fifteen minutes. Kids these days with their easy money and their Gaia cash and their convevient high-paying minigames have no concept of the worth of gold! *waves cane, rattles dentures*

Off-topic, but I keep meaning to ask. Do you have a feed for Dominic Deegan? LJ can't find one to try and syndicate it, nor can my RSS reader.

awww. rascal. what about sparky? (say FEEESH!)

Welcome to Gaia. :D Hope you don't mind if I add you as a friend.. I wanna look cool. =P My name (well, one of them) is Bella_Disenchanted.

And I would totally read that new comic. o.o
Joey B.meddler_inc on March 6th, 2008 06:21 pm (UTC)
First off, I like the shirt.

Secondly, bad Rascal! Stop nomming on cardboard!!
amelie_ami_chanamelie_ami_chan on March 6th, 2008 07:10 pm (UTC)

No, realy, it sucks.

Anywho, when's your next Texas con?
Music-chan: Whale-of-a-timemusicchan on March 6th, 2008 08:53 pm (UTC)
hehe, Gaia. I've been there since about forever. It's pretty amusing. Maybe I'll see you around.
Jekkaseraphwings on March 6th, 2008 09:01 pm (UTC)
Will you be online any time soon? I have some questions for you regarding a certain anime convention. And I won't bite.
K.T. Marieunicornvamp3z on March 7th, 2008 01:54 am (UTC)
Can't wait to see you at anime boston! </ creepy stalker girl>
Heidilunaticsocko on March 7th, 2008 03:19 am (UTC)

Is Dominic's vision missing from the second to last frame of the 3/6 comic?

Are you looking for part-time minions for AB yet?
Magnolia McKalin: kerriganmicha_forrest on July 3rd, 2008 01:03 pm (UTC)
Gaia fun
welcome to Gaia, Mookie. I likewise have not posted in a while. Years even. But on Gaia I am fairly active. My name is MichaForrest there too, so add me ^_^.

All of my cool stuff stems from the fast that I can buy Gaia cash with abandon and just buy everything I see with real money, then sell it for Gaia money then get even more cool stuff. I am currently on the warpath, collecting ever singe evolving item they will ever make. Mwahahahahaha.

anyway, if you're ever on, give me a poke.

Hmm a new comic. Now that sounds promesing.
And I really need to catch up on Domenic and the gang, have been on a small hiatus on the webcomic reading.
And cats are all rascals and my cat loves to chew on my feet and my hands.
