Ten things that make me happy:

1) Family, like especially when Spencer and Meghan visit.

2) Hula, especially doing shows and going to seminars and seeing my Hula brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles (next month!)

3) Kung Fu, especially a day like today, with lots of awesome kicks and lots of sweating.

4) Writing and getting a scene right; a rarity, but it does happen once in a while.

5) The changing seasons.

6) Animals - Goofing around with my dogs, letting Pendragon sit across my shoulders, doing a perfect bird release.

7) Feedback--of any kind--for stories and drawings. Let anyone else deny that this doesn't feel good, I dare you.

8) Flowers, especially exotic flowers. Growing my own and getting them to bloom.

9) Hanging out with my two best girl friends on Thursday nights.

10 ) Chilling out on the weekends with a movie and a snack, knowing I don't have to get up early for work the next day.

I tag everyone.

This one's superfly long, so it's behind a cut. In it, [livejournal.com profile] d_r_o_n_e seems to be hooking up with herself, repeatedly. O_o


1. Go here.
2. Pass it on.

I tag everyone; that was fun.

So, today was Kung Fu but not Hula. Kung Fu was great, with Tristan leading skills and drills. I learned a hook kick, which is completely great, because you can knock your opponent's hands away and then follow up with a roundhouse to the head. I love that kind of stuff.

Then, I was supposed to go and see the puppies today (and try to wheedle out of her which one is mine, because I still don't know,) but then she had some errands to do and I think I got back too late. Anyway, one of my favorite movies is on now, A Life Less Ordinary. I've seen it a billion times and I'm still not tired of it. And for me to sit through Cameron Diaz even once is a hardship, so that should say something. Ewan McGregor. Mmmm. I'd pay to watch him clip his nails.

As I was leaving Kung Fu, Erica asked me if I had a boyfriend. I told her no, and then--and I completely don't know why I said this--I told her I was in the market, and did she know anyone? She said yes, in fact, her son was single and looking, and veyr handsome. Now, I know that Erica can only be ten years older than I am, at most. I asked her how old her son was and she told me he was 24.

My reaction to this was what it always is: "Do you have any idea how old I am?!" When I told her, I'm happy to report that her jaw dropped. She said she thought I was about 23. But then she added, "Oh my god, my son would have killed me!" O_o But blah blah, she and Elise both said that they thought I was in my early twenties, and I was happy. But I couldn't be going around with some 24 year old.

Which is totally hypocritical of me, because like usual I couldn't keep my eyes off of Tristan, and he's only 25. (And about 3 inches shorter than me, too.) Completely not what I ever look for, but Tristan is so sweet and has such a killer smile, it's hard not to watch him.

So, yeah. I wanted to remember that.

Colored. Badly. )

I always mess things up by coloring them.

Also, I realized that he looks way more like Cloud Strife than I intended him to. Which is to say, I didn't intend at all for him to look like Cloud Strife. I intended for him to look like my own original character, which he sort of does in a slight way, but not nearly enough.

I wonder if I'll ever be completely happy with anything I ever draw. Or write, for that matter.

But it's still a fun way to pass a few hours. Maybe I'll animate this one if I get bored.

Comments? Suggestions? Hizzelp? Tell me to go screw a hot guy off? Whichever. ^_^

ETA re: song playing right now. Eleven years later, and I'm still head over heels in love with the nearly incomrehensible Yellow Ledbetter. It reminds me of my surgery from eleven years ago, too.
