Fennec J.A.M. Club Story|
Abigail, the younger of the three fennecs, tried fitting white socks over her large, fox ears. She was finding that her ears had been a just a tad too cold all day. She thought the socks were the right shape to help cover her ears up and keep them warm. She managed to squeeze her right ear into one sock and would have put the second one on her other ear, when Jonas walked over to her. He seemed a little confused and asked her what she was doing.
"My ears have been cold all day. I want them to be warm again," She would explain.
Jonas carefully took the one sock off her ear, and picked up the second one from her hands. "These are called socks. They go over your feet, not the ears," he kindly told her. He even goes to show her what he means by sitting down and putting a sock on each of her feet.
Jonas got both socks on put on and sat back to look over his work. The socks fit nicely over Abigail's feet and half way up her shins. But when he looked up at Abigail's face, she seemed sad. Her ears were splayed out and her whiskers were drooping a little.
Meanwhile, Maria had overheard the little conversation between her two friends. In the time that it took Jonas to put the socks on Abigail, she had found a red toque in the toy box. "You can wear this if your ears are cold," she tells Abigail. But when she tried to fit the toque on the younger fennec's head, it wouldn't sit right. Jonas and Maria tried fiddling around with the toque, folding it up even more. But it still wouldn't fit.
After a few moments, Jonas had an idea. "Try folding your ears back all the way," he suggests. Abigail looked at them both in turn, then took her hands to push back her ears. The toque sat over her head properly, finally. It felt weird, sitting over the base of her ears. But at least it was staying on her head. Abigail felt a little silly wearing the odd hat. But it passed as she found her ears and herself would stay warm over time.
Felt rather proud for finally finishing my hand paws for my fursuit on the weekend. They ended up being a pretty good match to the feet, but with slightly softer foam material in the pads. The hand paws are more like mitts.http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i34/Jimfoxyboy/blackfoxpaws1.jpghttp://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i34/Jimfoxyboy/blackfoxpaws3.jpg

Yes this is a bit of a rant. But if you think you could offer some 'legal' suggestions, I'm all ears at this point.( My current situationCollapse )

Major Car problems... Fixed!|
A year and a half ago, I was given a Cutlass Supreme from my parents. Ever since I had it, the ride has been some what rough. The problem was primarily with a set of dead, rear struts. Then recently, my muffler started falling off. I figured it was finally time to do something about the two big problems.
First off, I dealt with the muffler with a quick run to the the shop. The bolts that held it in place had fallen off, and the connecting pipe was starting to break off. Next with that out of the way, it was a run to a friend's place, (thanks goes out to those people) in order to replace the back struts with the new ones.
With all that out of the way, /finally/, I don't have to worry about the hidden tail hitch getting mashed into the ground, or whenever I have people riding in the back seat.
So far, it feels kind of weird driving around in something that drives lot more quieter, but I'm sure I'll get used to it quickly. It's just been the highlight of my week so far.

If it's not one thing it's another|
Ok being sick just sucks the life out of almost everything...
First it starts off with a tongue sore from hell, then sore throat, now something of a bug. er well. At least I have the first season of Wagaya no Oinari Sama to cheer me up.
In other news, job interview tomorrow... -cough cough- x.x
I sometimes get these moments of inspiration while either off sitting down waiting for something or taking a shower. Or at any time I have a chance to let my mind wander. At first it was just a few words that started coming to mind. Next thing I know it, I'm rushing to the computer to write things down before I forget anything that I just came up with. Then, it just started taking on a life of its own for a few moments.
I've been meaning to get around to writing what I would call a 'Five year report on the Falarins'. The Falarins being race of various anthros that have been working with my Online self/character's organization, for the past five years (of course). I hadn't bothered till recently to being piecing things together about who or what they are.
Below is a small selection vocabulary and a rudimentary translation of the words. I'm no where close to being a linguist, so I tried to make do with what I know. Why here? Well I'm posting in a few places to get some thoughts, maybe to see if anyone has experiences in this sort of thing. Who knows. I figured since the Falarins were raised for a time by the ancient race that created them, they had to adapt a lot of the sounds of the words to make it easier for them to speak. I don't know if I'll expand on this further yet or not.
Sun - Sarii = Light+center
(the sun was natural source of light)
Moon - Husa = dark+light
(Perhaps given because unlike the sun, the moon can be seen both in the day and the night)
Dark - Hus
Light - Sa
Center - Rii
House/shelter - Rus'Sa-Rai (outside+protection+from)
(There is no hard rules on word combinations other than to allow for smoother flow of the vocalizations)
Outside - Rus
Protection - Sa
Inside - R'was
From - Haii
To - Rauf
Land - Um'pt
Water - Oo'ss
Air - Saama (sky)
Space - Hamma (void, place of the stars)
(I know there isn't much, this was a sort of 'get it down before I loose my drive' sort of thing.)

I just got word that XM Radio and Sirius radio are both going to go under in the next week. Filing for bankruptcy owing to $3.5 billion. Sigh.
Animal word link meme|
Just a little something i was thinking about the other day:
I started thinking of what each of the different animals that I usually have on my mind, in a sort of rough order from most to least that I like. And the things they have meant to me in the past and now.
Fox (red fox) - True Self, Sexuality, Attraction
Fox (Fennec) - Individuality, Alertness
Fox (Arctic) - Beauty, Simplicity
Bear (Polar) - Compassion
Skunk (Stripped) - Pleasure
Mink - Softness
Deer - Calmness
Raccoon - Childhood
Human - Vulnerability
Dog - Loyalty, Play
Cat - Independence

Life takes a new direction|
Time for new job.
Thinking about taking suit or suit part commissions if things don't pan out so well. I'm still trying to finish mine which I'm hoping to get done in time for FC, just hope I can even attend still.
Current Location: Somewhere in my own head

Alive, plus one teddy|
Still kicking around. Work has slowed down somewhat as it usually does this time of year. Means more time for my own life, but less money in the long run. Still struggling with some personal issues but at least I'm not alone in dealing with them since the latest move.
Was heading over to a friend's back on Wednesday evening after work and decided to stop in at the nearby ValueVillage. I spotted this guy just sitting there!http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i34/Jimfoxyboy/TheoTeddy1.jpg
He was less than nine bucks. Has a bit of heft to him too. My mind was going on about random things and the name Theo came to me for him. I loaded him up into the back seat of the car and continued on my way to my friends. The little stop over at the store to pick him up actually had me avoid a couple of accidents along route over the bridge I was going to take. Hmm, good luck teddy bear perhaps?
On a side note, my sister says shes going to be dressed up in a full unicorn suit for Halloween. I told her about the local fur group's party event the week afterward. She was wondering about going to it. Will have to see, going to meet up with her this weekend to talk about things.
