MCR actually broke up. To say that is a surprise is an understatement-they were still working on music. I'm puzzled, but I'm sure we won't get much of an explanation. I know a lot of fans want one now, but after the way Bob left, I don't expect one.

I don't really know how I feel about it-I was devastated when Bob left, and I had been out of the fandom for about a year. It's been about three more years and now I'm just like "oh". I don't understand it really, but I'm not crying into my keyboard either.

It's been so fun to me fandom-wise, because I was in bandom from about 2004-ish to 2008, and then about a year or two into Adam Lambert fandom, most of my Adam people started getting into bandom! It was this lovely second wave and it was so much fun for me to see everyone getting involved. I could've done more to help people catch up, but there was a lot of enabling going on on that front. :)

Oh well. Think of all the interesting projects! Ray will probably do something awesome-I can't see him not playing music. Frank has Leathermouth and he'll probably have six other bands as well since "resting" seems to be a foreign concept to him. Gerard will probably do more comics, and I'd be happy if he did other stuff, branched out. Like do a voice for a kid's cartoon, something silly.

Then there's Mikey. Mikey to me, needs some time away from the spotlight. I hope he does.

And actually, I'm glad in a way we got a clean "we broke up" over a "we're on hiatus". Even though Fall Out Boy turned out to be telling the truth about the "hiatus", most bands don't.

But Jim Nabors marrying his partner put a big smile on my face. I've always had a special place in my heart for Jim, since my mom used him as an example of why we should have tolerance and acceptance for gays. She told me this in 1975, when I was five years old. My mom was ahead of her time on that one.

In other news, just saw Warm Bodies and loved it. Great movie, a zom rom com. It's worth it, trust me.

Insane Clown Posse is suing the FBI for listing Juggalos as a gang.

No, really. They're going to sue the Feds. And you know, they should. This whole "ICP are leaders of a gang" thing is not only untrue, but it hurts the band financially because they can't sell their t-shirts at places like Hot Topic anymore.

I have no love in my heart for ICP and their dumber fans, but you can't call them all gang members for liking a group. It doesn't matter that it's a shitty group, either. Every time the FBI interacts with pop culture it's generally hilarious and wrongheaded. Or it's funny after the fact, anyway. Let's hope this latest bullshit blows over soon.

Happy Tresspassing Day, my fellow Glamberts. I will be impatiently waiting for my copy to show up.

I bought three copies-the one I pre-ordered in January, the UK edition that I was gifted the money for, and one for Youth First Texas. (YFT's amazon gift page is addictive. I want to buy them everything!)

I need to write a ficlet or something to celebrate. I have a chapter and a new story in the works but they're gonna take a while. I just want to write a little to celebrate.

I never use Scrapbook, but I think people who pay for a service should, you know, know when that service gets severely diminished. Via caiusmajor:

Alright, I am not drunk enough to deal with this, so I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away. Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

The dog went back to the vet today to get her gum growth removed. We were right to put this above getting surgery for her leg now. They checked out her lungs because she's been having trouble breathing when she's asleep.

She has a growth on her lungs. They can't really do anything about it.

Fuck. Just...fuck. My dog might have cancer, but I'm not sure. At any rate, I think we're just going to take care of her at home and leg her leg heal as much as possible while...yeah.

Thanks to everyone who gave us some money through the PayPal button. It's really helped us with all these vet bills even though we haven't spent it on what we said we would. It's still all going toward her medical care. Thank you.

Edit: I got her back from the vet and the growth is worse than I had hoped. It's big and pressing on her heart and diaphram. Her lungs have a lot of fluid. We can't do anything but give her antibiotics and keep her comfortable.

I just...I don't know what to do. I'm devastated.

I took the dog to the surgery center today, after a merry run-around trying to find it.

She hasn't had the surgery. Because it's going to be $2,500 at minimum. That's the estimate.

Also, she has a highly elevated white blood count. She's got a growth on her gum, which she's had before and it was biopsied and found to be benign. But the surgeon is worried.

So, maybe she also has cancer. We don't know.

Also, I am instructed to buy a crate-she is not supposed to walk until the surgery and then not for six weeks *after*. Oh my god. Remember, this is a dog that catches critters and jumps the fence reguarlly. She will hate this.

PayPal button is still open. But I just don't even know when the surgery will be. The money that has come in has reimbursed the existing vet bills, and I thank everyone for that.

The PayPal account is working now and the money came through. I hope everyone can still cover it, since it's so close to the end of payday for most people.

THANK YOU ALL. Thank you. It was over $450.00. That will help a great deal. I'm so happy right now. I'm also scared to death of PayPal, so I hope it's not lying to me.

Thank you so much.
