While researching for costume ideas the other week, I came across this on devient art:

And wrote two stories which I'm sharing with you today.

Oh, an another thing...

See, I was being serious. No pics untill I have the scanner-of-stress up and running. (I don't have a pic. for this. Probably for the best).

Title: Don't mention Pon Farr
Author/Artist: miska
Fadom(s): Fall Out Boy, Star Trek
Pairing(s): n/a
Rating: pg, au, ooc
Summary: A silly little piece of fandom-crack written after being hit by an image of Pete with Spock ears. I hope you like it.

Don't Mention Pon Farr

"For the last time, Pete," Patrick said without looking up from his perch on the bunk above Pete's, fingers fumbling slightly as he fastened unfamiliar boots. "Will you leave those ears alone."

Scowling, Pete dropped his hands to the gold braid edging his cuffs, and fiddled with that instead.
"Dude," he scowled, glancing over to where Andy and Joe were sitting- on his bunk, in their gold and blue shirts, ready to go and bickering over a magazine. "How come I-"
"You lost the bet with Ash, remember," said Andy, voice laced with amusement. "You ready, Patrick?"
"Ready." He strode to the door, adjusting the avocado green wrap fastened around his torso. "Coming, Pete?"

"This is highly fucking illogical," Pete moaned, tugging down his hemline and trudging to the door. "How about you go on ahead? I'll meet you there after I've adjusted these ears."
"And give you the opportunity to change into a pair of pants? I don't think so," Joe exclaimed, herding a reluctant Pete out into the parking lot. "It's just a dress. You've worn one before and it's only for one show. You got something against Vulcans?"

"No, and it's a five show deal," Pete muttered under his breath. "Ash is going easy on me with this one."


Time to whip out the L's

I swore I wouldn't whinge but I think it may be inevitable.

I haven't been here for a while.
I still find it depressing that I get more responses when it's not me posting. A sign? Perhaps.

If you're reading this, pissed that you hardly ever or never see my happy tag commenting on your posts it is because I SERIOUSLY AM RARELY HERE. tHIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT AGAINST YOUR WONDERFUL SELF. I also find going and reading through peoples blogs to be more than a little creepy at times. Granted, I am most likely missing a great deal of awesome things but if this place starts to depress me (see: issues & seeing awesome things I feel I can't achieve) then I back off for a while.

I am sorry. I should try to be 'round this part of town more in the future. I mostly enjoy my time here. I also like working out the way to phrase the thinky-thoughts cased inside my skull.

HOWEVER, since I am often bouncing towards 'pay attention to me' mode I will likely start posting the silly, weird and (by my judgment) not-amazing-but-I'll-get-there) interesting things I produce on paper. Or being silly. Or linking things.

I think it's time I become a properly functioning citizen of the interwebs.

hmm... Mish is not a happy Mish.

Occasionaly I decide that I shouldn't speak anymore. This rarely goes as far as determining the exact methods to prevent me from ever communicating whilst remaining alive but that I shouldn't speak isn't so rare. It's also pretty common in my dreams (though not as much as my beloved dinosaurs). This is always after i've been emotional, upset myself, opened my mouth and said something, upset my self further and didn't learn from the just previous experience. It's a loopy mess. It doesn't last too long physically, I sulk once I'm back to rational thought patterns & continue. It usually results in me pulling myself away from most online speaking opportunities for quite a while. I tend not to go anywhere near here when depressed. You can always tell when I'm back because I post. Today is an exception. I'm cranky with myself and I  guess I felt like complaining/explaining or something like that.

Today I saw Ponyo. Everything I've heard about this film was true and more. By the time the end credits bounced cheerily onto screen it was cemented in my head as my favourite Studio Ghibli film of all time. I'd pay full price to see it again. In a heart beat. I want to wrap myself up in it's adorableness, snuggle deep and sleep untill I'm feeling better. Good luck honey. Seriously though, it's one of the best films I've seen in a long time. I'd tie it with Wall-E and Grave of the Fireflies for emotional movement and love-for.

Right now I should be producing something for the zine instead of feeling parinoid about showing people, by which I mean ANYONE, my work. It's all caught up in my issues (as is everything else I ever whinge about) but I said I would and so I shall, even if the idea can petrify me in an instant.  Tempted by dinosaurs, which I love but fear is fatal because Dinosaur Comics is so fantastic. *sighs* I really do whinge here alot, don't I? No need to comment, I know the truth. I think it actually is time for another break after all.

Farewell for now,

~ mishka.
GRRRR, DAMNIT. I totally had a fantastic post, ready to go but bumped keyboard and lost it *sobs* Sorry all but you'll never know now.


I have been as busy as always and have regretably neglected you all.
No, I'm not procrastinating. Whatever gave you that idea. I totally don't have skeins of Debbie Bliss 'Pure Silk' sitting on my bed next to my newly christened 'zine' sketch pad with half finised ideas in it. I am feeling a little smug as I now have one sleeve left of my cardigan to knit! Nearly finished. All I have left after that is to attatch the sleaves, shape the yoke and add the button holes. Then I'll have to post it's sage greeness so I can smug some more.

Things I can cross off my list: Anberlin. Seeing how many years ago I adored them you'd think i'd be more excited about it all wouldn't you? I did hear them play Bryce and my song, a few more I used to love & then I had to go. The sound was absolutly appaling from all corners of The Roundhouse and besides, I was hungry. The Academy Is... brilliant as always and played another great show. I had a really good time. It kind of makes my sad even now that I wasn't all amped and that Anberlin kinda dissapointing from my ears being driven crazy but eh. Now I've seen them I can close the book on that and move along to the next show which makes me squeak from buzzy joy.
I kinda still can't belive that come the end of the month I will have finally seen them live. I also get to see the Mikado again. Sometimes I can't belive how lucky I am, being able to see many great bands, operas and plays. On a brighter note, I have finally seen the fantastic Mr Ben Folds. I am soo hitting that gig up the next time he lands on my shores. He is AMAZING! (but you all know that allready, don't you).

I have been soo decidedly lazy today but rememberd to ring my dad for Fathers Day. He was happy for the call & we talked football for a while (my dads team topped the table) andrecent events before promising to organise my siblings so we can have a birthday dinner for myeslf and fathers day dinner for him. It'll only be about two months late when it happens for me but better late than never. I'm missing them all today, can you tell?

*checks time* I should go and prep. some dinner or something and make some decisions and not just read fantastic Holmes/Watson fic (I blame you, Maggie).

HUGS TO EVERYONE - esp. Sunny and her latest fantastic piece of fic (read to me by my darling Jenn).

It's warmer in the basement...

or it's warmer in my basement, but that's only in the winter time.

Welcome my dears to Mishka's sporadic bitch session. Today's bitch, whinge and complain has been brought to you by one of the last slices of another delicious Zweifers cake.

Bitch: Bullying type behaviour and intimidation tactics in the workplace. I am not happy about that.
Whinge: The maternity leave position officially ended last wednesday but I do have lots of casual work atm. Good news is that I am being paid out for annual leave, sick leave and leave-in-liu. Excellent. Thankyou council.
Complain: ... Its hardly been cold enough this winter. Also my cousins are loud. Very loud, in that way young children have of being loud.

Well, thats taken care of. Health wise I am much better than when I last typed as I'm down to a mild case of the sniffles. Feeling a little down but I think that's due to almost everyone I know being on holidays right now and being able to hang out while I am working. *sigh* I'll just have to plan holiday time for later.

Report: Drum Kit.
It is fantastic! More matte than shiny & still requiring a stool (I find it awkward practicing from a proper chair) but it is soo much fun. It has functions! Hopefully I will start improving faster and build some fantastic confidence as well as some wicked beats. I feel pretty proud for assembling it properly and not needing to change anything accross. I need to name her/him/it & then I'm done.

My new bed is providing me with better sleep for which I am very thankful. It's about damn time too. I've decorated it with my Pirate Lanterns and are considering purchasing more lanterns to wind around the top. I don't have them plugged in all the time, don't worry about that.

If there's anything I promised last time & haven't delivered.... I'll re-read the last entry, find out & do something. Likely apologise but I might actually carry it through too. Ok OK, I'll investigate.

Greetings GQMFs,

This week hasn't been exciting. In fact, I've barely been outside at all. I've been sick, which sucks, but am better, which is excellent! This does mean that I should be well enough to face work tomorrow morning but I'm kinda getting sick of sleeping all day. I lie. I love sleeping all day.

Things Mishka now knows:

* My cousin is 5 & 1/2, very bright and VERY LOUD. He also likes showing off and has surprisingly good manners when he isn't preforming.
* The last movie my aunt fully cried to exhaustion in a film was....  Wrath of Kahn! I know you know when. (brought up while waiting for my doctor at 9:30 pm on sat. 4/7 because someone mentioned Bambi.)
                  Ok, so this one requires some background. I was, as assured by my Aunt who'd taken me to see Bambi at the State Theatre, inconsolable after watching the scene where Bambi's mother died. I kept saying 'Bambi's mum is dead. I know the truth'. I had to be taken out and missed most of the film calming down. Apparently the other children thought she'd gone on holiday or something? At least I didn't break a talking mirror that time.Truefax.
* Ibuprofen can make me vomit.
* My mum won't give up on the 'get an "interesting" haircut' angle. Then again, we're all as stubborn as each other.
* I have a sister with the favourite colour 'yellow', matched by the afore mentioned cousin.
* Orange glucose sachets aren't all that bad...except for the last sip which makes me go 'bluwahwohwha

Before I go, things of excitement!

1) I HAVE A NEW BED! Exciting because I've been sleeping on a mattress on the floor for the past year and a half because the old one, a lovely freebie, creaked whenever I breathed.

2) K.RUDD brought me an electric drum kit. Which means I never have an excuse not to have practiced again but still, YAY!

Well, this annoying, overgrown (see the hair) aquatic chicken should be leaving you now for her beauty sleep.

PS: SUPERNOVA & GQMF & 70th Birthdays to come in the next exciting update!

... I'm on a ship!...

~ No redshirts were harmed in the making of this post~       
... only because they all ran away. Suspicious bastards, the lot.

Tick 'yes' for Mish's great big renewed obsessive interest in all things Trek, minus wearing redshirts which is an amazingly bad idea with bright pink hair. I've a few things to 'fess to.

a) I am proud of my littlest sister. She's now determined to see Trek & is helping a friend write a short play set in the general Trekverse. There are colourblind aliens and redshirt shootings. They don't have an ending yet but they are planning on turning this into a rpg game for their friends. ILY KO! Keep on geeking on & you too shall excede your awesome quota, young padawan.
b) SHANE WARNE THE MUSICAL!! I totes got to say a few words to Eddie Perfect that weren't embarrassingly faily or fangirly. It was a fantastic night & they had better be releasing a dvd.
c) Shopping: I have two new scarves! A green wool/silk pashmina & a bright yellow linen pashmina for summer. I want to knit me a Scottie scarf because I totally need a slim scarf for all seasons. Then I have an excuse to knit a Scottie hat. Also, my boots have come! They look like this: https://www.tukshoes.com/store/index.php?main_page=popup_image&pID=307&zenid=aci1vcntttr8tf3cg3vltne2t6  and are lovely! I also have, so far, resisted the temptation to refill my mostly empty wardrobe.
d) I want to learn a new language... & I will. Soon. Maybe I can start next week?
e) Test results are in: my psyc. was right. I'm cool with it, even if its been said that it's a great big engraved name plate of validation. *hugs my quotable friend*

I'm off to look at clothes, drum kits, Star Trek icons and other pretty things Star Trek or otherwise. I'll also knit and practice some.
Hugs to everyone.

I finally met the Minties lady!

Greetings all,

Immediate update: I am doing a four day OH&S course, paid for by Council (thankyou thankyou) & I have been haing a relly good time. Besides wanting to fall asleep at the end of my first class yesterday but I'm pretty sure that the law was wearing me out.
It's made me realise a few things:
a) I miss actually learning new things. I really should consider a night/online course for next semester.
b) I grew up knowing & hearing an awful lot about OH&S, especially concerning my Fathers industry
c) SHE IS THE MINTIES LADY! (also a damn good trainer)

Let me explain...

My Fathers a Coal Miner. I grew up hearing a lot of discussions about various problems & solutions, both at his work and Pits all around the world. My instructor, Louise, has been in the industry roughly since the seventies and is an international accredited OH&S Auditor. She has many a great story. Today she was recalling one were she'd gone to a mine and a she short term system she introduced rewarding PPE compliance. With Minties. In the break I asked her if that was about so long ago and at a certain mine and she said yes! I remember my Father telling myself and my siblings about it at the time and that they had a 'great female OH&S girl visiting'. Proof that my long-term memory isn't too shabby.

As you can tell, I feel pretty proud for being able to ping one of her cases exactly. It's something to remember too - rewards, not bribes for blokes who're refusing to co-operate. Can't guarantee it'll work but it could be worth a shot.

... Am considering doing further study in this field. I've always found it interesting and doing the course has just piqued my interest again. Not sure whether the TAFE or wether I'll finally finish one of my double degree and do it post-grad.

~ and back to our regular broadcasts.

I have a small confesion to make. I have seen, & loved High School Musical 2! The film is completly ridiculous, hilarious and filled with amusing song and dance numbers. Seriously: a pink piano, boy band moves, piano solo, copious amounts of glitter and heated stares - how could you not love it. Also, Ryan/Chad is now CANNON. They had swapped thier entire outfits after the charmingly gay 'I don't dance' number. I figure the outfit swaps was Disney's way of saying 'Yes, they are totally doing each other'. It's also amusing how neither of them have any chemistry with the females of the cast yet they keep trying to set up something between Chad and Daphne? (academic olympics girl from the first film). Zafron and Hudgens bore me but oh my, I totally love both Ryan and Sharpai.

Mothers day went well. K.O., the youngest sister, has converted my brother to the dark side. NARUTO. He thinks it's hilarious. She's promised Death Note will be next. I suppose it's keeping him off the W.O.W for a while. My other sister is about to start her second five week placement in Nowra, which reminds me, I have a public service announcement: If you are planning or think you're having a heart attack, head over to the Bankstown area. They have the best stroke rehabilitation clinic in the country. They do, however, only have 20 beds in that ward so you'll want to pick a quiet day. I'll be seeing them all again next weekend as we're going out somewhere for family dinner to celebrate my brothers 21st! I need to pick up something appropriately cheeky that is safe to open in front of the parents.

That said, I should proarbly spell-check this and post before it's time for my beauty sleep. My newly recommended sleep cycle, an effort to try to get an eventual 8 hours of sleep and to stop me getting so damn tired, is trying. I'm a night person naturally and have been a mild insomniac since early highschool but day work means that I need to keep it up and i'll adjust eventually.

Night all,

~ mishka
