So when I first saw the new Kindles on Amazon, I just about shit a brick. The Kindle Fire seemed like it would be the best little tablet, and I had visions of writing entire novels on it's beautiful screen with a stylus. Well, it turns out (as anyone in the tech sphere will tell you), that it's gotten it's little Android guts ripped out of it. I'm sure it will serve it's niche well, but I'm not included (yet.)
My traditional blog posts start with something akin to, "Wow, I haven't posted in a long time!" No shit, Sherlock. Just look at the timestamps! Oddly enough, I really do wish I blogged more. I also don't feel like I would really be any good at a blog about a specific topic. I read a lot of blogs about make-up and fashion, but lately I've moved more into the realm of interior design. I'd have a new blog every year, if not sooner.
The interior design bend has come from the fact that for the first time, I have my very own place. I feel like an adult. It's liberating!
Well, I've started to learn about the wonderful science of cooking as of late. I've started a cooking blog over on Allrecipes.com Be sure to check it out, as I will regale you with tales of woe and triumph.
Here's my fandom at it's worst. I love Firefly and Serenity. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out. Anyways, a few years ago, I created a bobble-headed Geisha. This piece was mostly a proof-of-concept. It turned out decently, but imperfect, and I was disheartened. The project was lain aside, to collect dust on my mother's shelf. Then, an organizer from the St. Louis "Can't Stop the Serenity" event requested a custom geisha for their auction! I couldn't have been more pleased. The bobble-head turned out great! I am again creating one (or more) geishas for this year's event.

Thrift stores are the Thing of the Whenever. I just found some great stuff at the local Goodwill. I just bought a jewelry armoire for 83% off the retail price! No, it's not all beat to hell either. I also found an adorable dress and a sterling silver cover baby album with the engraving certificate still inside. This is just from my latest trip! It surprises me how much nice stuff people just give away.
I love Doctor Who. I've fallen for the newest series hook, line, and sinker! My wonderful mother bought me a present, a miniature TARDIS USB hub! It lights up when you add or remove devices, as well as an optional sound effect, just like the one on TV! It's hard to beat the combination of aesthetics and functionality!
I found a steampunk-esque watch that I just had to have. This watch is wound and hangs on a chain as a necklace. I am hoping to cobble together a steampunk outfit shortly, and will probably get some photos of myself and friends in said costume. Cross-posted to my blog.
While digging out my costume for the impending local Renaissance Faire, I found my favorite piece. I love how useful it is (although, I've never been about to use it myself...) It's very elegant and always gleans many comments and questions, when it's not being over-shadowed by my Lothlorien pin and/or pet griffin. This watch was crafted by the wonderful Shepperd's Watches. This is one of the smaller and more affordable options, so they have much more elaborate and beautiful options.
So, I starting to get into a trend called Steampunk. I came across this laptop, and it is amazingly cool.
