The awesome [personal profile] garden_hoe21 is running this comm, and while I'm not sure if I'm going to offer anything (I still owe [livejournal.com profile] adamaddict_rh a podfic from January) it's definitely worth checking out!

Charity Works

I'm pimping myself out again. This time for [community profile] help_pakistan.

I'm offering up podfic and mail.

While I'm pimping, here are some things friends of mine are offering:
[livejournal.com profile] kronos999 is offering book binding services (we have some of her books around the house and they're pretty awesome. I just stick my printed off fanfics in a binder but she makes them awesome)

[livejournal.com profile] seanchaidh is offering up fic

[livejournal.com profile] takhys is offering hand made earings

They have a master list of the types of things being offered here. Or you can check out their delicious account.

Bidding ends August 28th @11:59 EST

Help Haiti and Podfic Feedback Exchange.

Well, it looks like I shouldn't have worried over my mail for a year idea. Not only is it my highest bid, a whole bunch of other people are now offering it from their various locations and with themes. :)

Since I didn't link to it in the last entry, if you'd like to bid on getting mail from me for a year you can do so here

I don't actually want to pimp myself out too much but I'll probably do so at least once more before everything's over. Anyways, my podfic offer is here (current bids at $15) and my vid offer is here (no bids yet :( ).

In other news, I spent the day trying to match people up for my podfic feedback exchange. 30 people signed up, with 20 podfics to review. I spent a huge amount of time working on the matching yesterday too. I set up a spreadsheet that was really helpful in getting an idea of what I needed to put in the spreadsheet and how to approach certain things. However I just couldn't see the whole thing without making the font too small to read. I'm a really visual person, so I have to be able to see everything. So the next step was getting the craft paper out and transferring the info to paper. [personal profile] diurnal_lee has this giant pad of paper that's 18"12". My first draft wasn't properly spaced so the columns by the end were like 3mm wide, which just didn't work. In fact just as I finished matching everyone up last night, I realized that there were 2 reviewers that didn't have fics to review! I did some quick and dirty changes but at that point I realized that it was 2 am and I had been working on this mostly non-stop since 4pm.

This morning, even though I had everyone matched up from the night before, I decided to do it again. I wasn't really all that satisfied, and I figured I knew what I did wrong last time :P I made a new paper spreadsheet, better spaced this time. However I still wasn't able to fit all the information I wanted on it comfortably, so out came the markers and highlighters. The second matching took much less time, about 5 hours with lots of distractions and I would run downstairs and announce "OMG! I forgot to take into account that some of these podfics where gifts to reviewers during podbang!" It seems kind of tacky to ask someone to review their gift. I also almost assigned someone their own podfic the night before :S

Anyways, everyone's matched up now. I'm going to double check everything tomorrow and then start sending out the assignments. Maybe I'll take pictures of may crazy charts so you can see how nuts I am. :P

*waves*

Hello Flist.

So I've been kind of MIA for a long time now. I can't promise I'm going to get back to reading my flist any time soon, but I do miss you.

Despite not being on my LJ much lately, it seems like I've been doing a lot of fannish stuff lately. As you've probably seen, I've started a podfic feedback exchange (which I should totally be working on right now). I started another podfic project too, but I'm not ready to talk about it yet since it's kind of huge and I don't know if I'll keep it up.

There's also been unnecessary drama in the local fandom group I'm a part of, [personal profile] ottawa_slashers. The mod has stopped coming to meetings and won't pass on the mod position, even though it's really needed and the whole group has asked her to. I think we're all just going to start a new group so we don't have to deal with this shit.

I've also signed up for [personal profile] help_haiti. This reminds me a lot of [personal profile] fandom_aid that I took part in back in 2005 to help with tsunami relief.

Quite a lot of awesome people have put their talents on auction, I highly suggest checking it out if you were thinking of donating money to help the people of Haiti.

If you're interested in having me make you something I've signed up to make a vid and to make a podfic.

The first round of bidding ends Jan 20, only 6 days to go!

ETA: Hmmm, there's a rather large misc section at [personal profile] help_haiti and I was thinking... this might be really cheesy or might be really fun, but I was thinking of maybe offering someone mail for a year. I mean, everyone likes to receive mail, and wouldn't it be fun to receive a bunch of post cards over an extended period of time? Would people be interested in that or is it just silly....

Random Update

So yes, Sweet Charity is now closed for bidding. In total we raised $10,821.22 USD, $9,033.82 of which has already been paid. I personally went for $31.99 which makes me very happy (more than last year!). It's also official, I'm going to be making a Supernatural vid, so expanding my vidding horizons! Within 2 months I'll have finished vids in 3 different fandoms!
Now, I just need to *watch* Supernatural :P I've seen the first season and it was great, but it didn't grip me so much that I felt the need to watch the eps as they air. Mostly I prefer marathons over weekly eps. Luckily my room mate has them all downloaded so I don't have to worry about that.

Non-fandom related.
-I have a midterm tomorrow, that I *sooo* haven't been studying for. I've been bored all afternoon, but still haven't studied at all. (And I wonder why I fail things)
-I dropped some courses (nooo way was I going to be able to pass them, also, I'm switching programs and don't actually need the courses I dropped, so I feel no shame), and now I have way more "free" time, so I'm going back to working part time. Because I had gone a couple months between working, I have to go and sign all that lovely paper work again, and surprise surprise, I got a raise! I didn't even ask for it, but they gave me a $2 raise! That's pretty big for me, since I normally get like a $.50 raise when I return, not a $2 one! You know, it may not be the best job, but they really treat me well. :D
-I'm going to be moving in like a month. I can't believe that the school year is coming to a close. Also, it seems like it's been waaaayyyy more than a year since I've been in China.

Sweet Charity!

Ok, so I totally thought I had more time for this, but apperantly Sweet Charity ends in a couple hours, so here's my self pimping post!

Sweet Charity: Buy Me, Baby


There are a ton of people offering themselves up, I'm personally offering a vid (either QaF, SGA, SG-1, SPN, Numb3rs, House, Medium, The 4400, or Life on Mars) and right now some anonymous person is winning me, which makes me very nervous. :S

Seriously though, an staggering $10,000 CND has already been pledged, go and help people!

Charity Time

Hi all!

I would like to take a moment to tell you all about a charity project I'm working on called Sweet Charity being run by [info]lithiumdoll.

Sweet Charity


Basically we're trying to raise money for RAINN an American organisation for rape, abuse and incest victims. The charity is the favoured organisation of Maria "Danzy" Delgado, in whose memory this auction is taking place. In this spirit 25 different people have put themselves up for auction, offering 11 vids, 25 fics, 10 peices of art, and 3 misc projects!

I've also put myself up offering a vid!

So if any of you out there have wanted a vid, or a fic, or something made, come check us out, it's for a great cause!
