-I have to ask because I'm an idiot and I just don't get it: what the heck is the point of "sweater cleavage"? Isn't the point of wearing a sweater to keep yourself warm? Wearing a sweater like that will expose flesh; and if its supremely cold out then you're not going to want to have any part of yourself, even as sexually appealing as you want it to be, to be exposed! Besides, isn't the sensuality of a sweater supposed to just be "look how big I appear; now imagine me without the sweater indoors"?
-I was talking with my friend
about something that I used to have some problems with of my own: how the heck do you get a character that everyone wants to see and gets a lot of fan love? Honestly to me, to do that more or less rides on just getting a character out there in whatever means you can: create your own art of them, stories, maybe create scenarios that demonstrate who they are, their friends, rivals and whatnot. If you work with them, then others will want to see them and develop a base, with fanart, fanfics and whatnot. It ends up showing with how many have one character they're known for and thus makes it easier perhaps for others alongside that one with the one as the star. I sort of just avoid that altogether since I work with a great variety or ensemble of characters, but even then I know there are a few I keep coming back to and want to show off regardless. I don't have a super-break-out akin to a ton of other artists or writers but I'm happy for my ensemble and get happily surprised when someone I've been neglecting or haven't had time for gets the love as well.
-In some ways I'm happy for the craziness at this time of year, but I also sort of wish for a bit more calm. It doesn't help I'm doing a lot of running around or things that have to get done (last night it was building a bookcase, tonight its "mom's group" duty, and tomorrow I'm picking up a female friend who is coming with sis and I to the Hudson Valley Saturday for a trip I promised my sister during the car chaos back in November); and I'm just sort of hoping I can get to the end of this nutty period and be able to relax...which for me probably won't be until after the holidays are over.
-Oh and in case anyone wants to know or care, I'm throwing in another "long weekend trip" next summer, due to wanting to add extra time to Seattle...but not being able to because cancellation and movement fees at airlines are ridiculous. But hey, it will allow me to do the long weekend in Seattle in May, and another, much stranger but hopefully just as fun driving trip in August! That I'll be a bit more mum about for the moment unless you personally ask me but...I will say it is probably going to be one of the busiest times of year for that state, as it tends to be every 4 years (though usually is busy at that time in August anyway)
