Yup. More. Fandom-y things have started now! (Though some more Lush items are coming.) Here are two lovely things to start it off!

Beautiful Supernatural Memorabilia: Die-Cast Replica of Dean's 1967 Impala Sport Sedan

Games of Thrones House Sigil Magnet Set - Four Houses, Four Magnets

Here we go again! Remember, LJ/DW people get a discount, and people and people who link to these posts get a discount, too.


Fandom things coming soon, as well as crochet patterns. :)

In case you didn't know, I'm living on Social Security Disability and SSI. Together, they total $696 a month.

Kinda sucks. My parents are lovely and help out, but there's a problem: as I get better, the inflammation goes does.

I have very, very few items of clothing that fit me.

So! I'm posting items on eBay, on Etsy, and, basically, here. Lush items that are no longer available, random fandom items, Supernatural items (a diecast replica of the Impala), Firefly items, Game of Throne items (both a usb drive in the emblem of the House of Stark and an unopened set of four magnets, one for each of the four houses, with mottos and emblems both), X-Men items, Narnia items, etc. Should you buy something on eBay or Etsy, let me know; I'll take $1 off of your invoice.

I wish I could do more. But I'm kinda desperate.

I'm also in pain, so this takes a while. I admit it. But here are the first ones. If you could help me out by sharing a link to each page I post with sale items, I'd be very grateful. (And should you choose at some point to buy something, I'll give you $0.10 for every post you boost. Doesn't sound like a lot, I know, but a) I'm in pain, so there will be several, and b) financially desperate.)

So! First set of items are Lush Holiday items not being sold this year.


You can make your own price offer for both of these either a) on eBay or b) in a comment here.

(If you DO post a link, let me know each time you do? That way I know how much of a discount to give you should you buy something.)

So, school's been eating me alive, especially as I'm trying to balance my treatments with classes.

But I realized that I was becoming depressed and isolated and, frankly, needed my online time. (Among other things.)

So not only am I back posting but--because I'm finally able to--I am reading my FList as of today on my DW and LJ. I may miss an entry here or there, but yes, I'm reading it.

I'll be even better with it come November; that's when Walmart's optical center starts offering anti-blue light coating on lenses for glasses. Which turns out to be exactly what I need to be able to read things like my FList without the problems I've been having.

(If you don't know about the problems of too much blue light, which every screen (computer, TV, smart phone, etc) produces, let me know and I'll write a post about it, and the health problems it causes.)

I'm also back to writing fanfic. And RP--Steph, I'm so sorry, I had a migraine and then die-off that was bad enough I literally couldn't move. First thing tomorrow, tagging you.

And I'll be unlocking my fic entries here, as well as linking to all of them, as I post them, on AO3.

So! What have I missed? What's up with all of you? Share things!

But right now, I'd like to express my love for [personal profile] tawnyport/[personal profile] sarawise.

Thank you for being there for me.

(Others of you are here and have been here for me too. Please don't think I'm ignoring that. I just wanted to let her know I have great love for her.)

Right now, you can get a free $5 gift card for Amazon. How? Download either the IOS (for ipad or iphone) or Android Amazon shopping app and log in with your account for the first time. Sadly, if you've logged in before, you don't qualify--but there is not technically a rule against having two Amazon accounts, if you were to, say, make a new one!

More info available here.

Offer good until June 21st.

ETA: You can download the app on to a Kindle, not just an Android phone.

Hello, true believers! Kat here, contributing to your bank account.

I've set up a gallery system at http://mirkat.net/gallery/.

So how does it work?

First, you need to know the code you'll use, so here's a mini-tutorial.

When you are starting to make a post OR a comment, the FIRST THING you put in is this:

[IMG SRC="whatever" ALIGN="left" HSPACE="10" VSPACE="10" STYLE="BORDER:2px solid black;"]

Obviously, the brackets are swapped for arrows.

What will it looks like? Something like this:

And the text will be next to it, rather than beneath it. As with any image, you can add a border to the icon if you like and choose to insert it into the above code. I've put the html for a border into the above code, as I personally like the look. I think it makes the icon look more formal, sets it off a bit.

But what about image hosting? Sadly, you can't register yourself with the gallery--but I'll take care of that for you.

If you're interested? Comment here with the following information:
- your email address
- what you want for a username
- the names of EVERY account--not the character, the ACCOUNT name--that you'll be using this with, and the game that each account belongs to; I'm keeping the folders in the gallery organized.

I'll set it up and send you an email with a pre-set password. Once you login, you can change it.

Also, this brings up the question: what about the default icon? It can be a bit jarring to have two icons in one place. So there will be an album labelled Game Icons; a link to it will be included in your email. You can download the appropriate one.

In my case, I plan to use one for the account [personal profile] just_a_phase with Kitty Pryde's name, a divider, then her codename. (See here.)  I suggest this as the most pleasant-looking option.

I'm making an icon that can be used as a default one for every game that has a player hosting images in an album.

You may also upload images that include profile banners or game-related images, but I ask you, please, to only use things for that.

You may also use this for your own personal journals, but  I need to know a) that it is for a personal journal and b) all the other information listed for RP accounts, minus what game the journal goes to.

Please note: there will be a paypal donation button on the main page.  If you should wish to donate a small sum, no more EVER than $5 would I feel comfortable with, in order to help with hosting costs, it is appreciated.  IT IS NOT IN ANY WAY REQUIRED. DO NOT FEEL GUILTY OR LIKE YOU SHOULD NOT ASK TO USE THIS IF YOU DO NOT PLAN OR ARE UNABLE TO DONATE. MY GOAL IS TO HELP YOU SAVE MONEY.

If I didn't have a fight with you in the last few weeks, you're probably not what set off my last post.

So chill. The one who did KNOWS his/her identity. If you're only worrying, it ain't you.

 I love Joni Mitchell. I do. 

And it it breaks my heart this has happened to her: http://www.mercurynews.com/celebrities/ci_28214957/joni-mitchell-suffered-brain-aneurysm?source=rss

That said, I don't wake up a single day without being aware that it could happen to me before I go to bed that night.

So no more tolerating being slammed on the Internet. I have enough to deal with without also having people gossip about me for one side of the story.

You don't like how I interacted with someone? I'll produce and post the screen caps of the interaction. I'll also tell you who helped edit and write the emails from my side, after in one case telling me about the other person, "S/he is not reading what you're writing." I never bothered before, but a therapist pointed out I've been protecting someone who in no way was willing to do that for me.

The words used by the therapist were, "threw you to the dogs". 

Oh, wait; I'm supposed to be quiet about everything? Public and locked posts were made about me, but I'm supposed to keep my mouth shut?

 I have been lied to and about, dropped as a friend, had promises repeatedly broken, and the few people who were aware of everything never said a word. Some of them for good reasons. Some for crappy ones.  

But don't you dare tell me I should be quiet because I'll just stir things up again. You wouldn't stand up for me, by God and all his angels, do not ever tell me I don't have the right to stand up for myself.

And if I have to show screen caps of every conversation I still have a record of in the process, I will.

if you don't like it, consider your own actions, if any, that might be relevant to what you believe I'm talking about before you dare talk to me.

i stopped being a Catholic because of the church and how it treated me. But a damned good portion of what drove me from Christianity was the behavior of so called Christians online.  

You don't get to judge me until you hear both sides.

Do I plan, at this moment, to do anything more in particular?

No.

But I have plans in case I have to.

That is a statement, not a threat. I don't bother with threats. I've been blackmailed and that's too close.

Just be aware. I'm done putting up with shit online. I'm done not responding to posts.

Im not perfect. But I saved enough records, just in case, to show what did happen in various cases.
