Here's my uber cool all black and white outfit topped with the Rorschach bracelet I got from wikiwikiwick for Christmas! ( That's a skirt, actually. )
( Here's my Christmas tree. )
( Presents! )
I'm going to post pictures of the other presents I got after Christmas (mainly more of wikiwikiwick 's, unless my sister gets me something)
I had fun last year but my story wasn't nearly as cracky, so I'm really looking forward to this insanity.
I have also decided to go back to school next year. I have no idea what I want to study -something free and fun.
What is everyone else up to?
I'm still dating the guy I met earlier in the month and it's going very well. I'm very excited, considering I haven't had a date or a relationship in a couple of years. I wasn't looking for it, which is obviously the exact time when it finds you. I'm not complaining, of course.
I also started hanging out with a close friend again, like we used to back in the day. And we have so much fun together, it's insane.
But, I have neglected my girls (Team ShortSchach) and missed them so much :( I hope I can catch up with them during the week, and get the podcast stuff done also. You know, right now, the JEH void is working for me. At least until I get back into my usual routine or get a hang of the new one (if it lasts). I should train one of you to do editing in case I get too behind with work or something. After all, Summer is approaching here, and what if I want to enjoy the sun? Hmm. I think I can do both (or all three if you count work), though. Don't panic! :D
Anyway... The new podcast episode is out. Now everyone knows about the infamous voice mail message and I don't have to be all "friends locky" about it.
Everything else in my life sucks. Majorly. Like, I have way too many problems, more than I can handle, money included. It's surprising that I'm in such a good mood, actually.
But also, not much has been happening in my life. I mean, some real life worries, money, but nothing I would like to share in detail online.
The good news: my sister offered to pay for the tattoo I've been saving up for (current balance $0.00) as a birthday present. But I have no idea what I want. I mean, I sort of do, but I need to go to the studio and start designing it with my tattoo artist. And I have no time for this. My birthday is 20 days away. Hm, I just hope she doesn't change her mind if I can't get it on the exact day of my birthday. I would be sad. Now, do I dare get it on my arm/shoulder? The ankle is my safe place, but I really want one on my arm, I'm just not sure I can rock it. Tough decision. I probably won't get it there, unless I'm completely convinced.
I hate being a "responsible adult". I'm not responsible at all.
There's less drama and more fun at my blog http://aflashofenlightenment.blogspot.
Yesterday I took the afternoon off and hung out with my friend (BFF, ugh hate that word). She's awesome and I love her but she has fandom issues. She is a Twihard. Loves Twilight, read the books, rents the dvd every now and then to watch it a few times, etc. She hasn't fully embraced the power of the internet so she fangirls with me (note: I read the first one and know everything that happens in the other books thanks to cleolinda ). I tolerate it, she's my friend, that's what we're for, right? I even let it slide that she doesn't do the same for me and Watchmen- it's not for everyone, I get it. At least she knows I like it, and my favorite character, and watched the movie (not for me) even if she didn't get it. But, even though she is a complete fangirl herself, she still couldn't understand why I would want to buy the Ultimate Edition
( We had this exchange going, while riding the bus. I just love the confuse stares we get. xD )
Ugh. Now I'mt rying to get some work done before going to lunch with my uncle. I need a real vacation. Someone want to make a donation?
Since I keep getting reminded by the surprise of others, I took a cap to document this awesome fact.
( Hollis Mason was a Spartan )
S'all I'm saying.
Also, lol at the best 300 twitter convo ever:
miss_bushido : WHERE did Leonidas get that apple?!
mcscary : he yelled at a tree and it produced it for him out of fear
deutschtard : I....AM.....HUNGRY!!!!!
Watchmen DC is almost here! I cannot wait! I CANNOT!
Looking good, man. Looking good.
I bought some kick ass shoes today, them and my new jacket will help me get through the winter with style. (The jacket was dirt cheap, to be honest, so it's not THAT pretty.)
( Check out my awesome new shoes! )
So I guess I'll stay in and watch movies at home. I'll try to hook the PC up to the tv and watch them in bed because I'm still a little under the weather. And speaking of weather, it's pretty cold out so staying in- not such a bad idea after all.
Also, I get one phone number to call free for life and one to message free, too! See, all the cellphone companies are offering one (or several) number to call and message free for life to new customers. So I went to my cellphone service provider and asked them if I -a loyal customer for 7 years already- didn't get one. And they said, of course! I'm really excited, since I switched to pre paid a while ago and now I can add my bff's cell number to call and message for free!. 8D
Anyway, first I went to see He's Just Not That Into You with my BFF and it was great. We had a lot of fun, although we disagree with the ending. I had bought a huge vat of pop corn that I couldn't even eat half of and that ended up being my dinner. That ended at around 10 pm, and I was set to meet another friend to see Angels & Demons at 10.15 pm. I know, I shouldn't have made the last minute plans with my BFF but it all turned out great, we made it on time (same theatre) and everything was great- except we had to seat on the third row. The movie was.. ok. I had read about half the book so I didn't know what was going to happen. I didn't get too involved with the story but I did enjoy remembering a lot of stuff from my Art History class. The crappy thing was that, being in a rush to get to the movie and all, I ended up paying for both our tickets, even though I wasn't supposed to. Now I'm even more broke than before and I hate calling my friend to tell her about it. X( Oh well.
We walked home even though it was a bit cold so we could have time to catch up. Nights like last night, are the reason why I sometimes love my city so much. Two girls walking alone at 1 am- I was alone for the last half of the way after dropping her off and it was just so peaceful. Not a creepy face in sight.
Is it July 21st yet??
The weirdest thing happened to me this week: I misplaced a day. Wednesday, to be exact. I don't know what happened to it. I remember Tuesday perfectly, and then I remember what I thought was Wednesday but was later corrected by my sister at around 9 pm. o_O So?I know I didn't sleep through it, I just can't remember it. Now I'm behind on work, because when I thought it was Wednesday I figured I still had Thursday to catch up... only I didn't, so now I'm stuck doing what was supposed to be Friday's work on Saturday. Go me. Should I be worried?
This computer blows, my games keep crashing. They just shut down, like "No, you weren't playing playing a game just now, it was all a dream. Look, that's your desktop!" DX It annoys me to no end.
On other news, drinking mate is wonderful for anxious eaters like myself, and way healthier than smoking. Not that I'm a big smoker, I used to smoke a lot, but I never caught the habit. That's right, nicotine has no hold on me, suck it! So, that's what I've been doing today, fighting with my computer and not stuffing myself with junk food. : D
I need to cultivate my social life. I have one, it's just not very active. I've been wanting to go out, dancing or something, but I have no money so it's been put on hold. I had a nice day today, spent the afternoon with my bff, we had raspberry ice cream and just had a great time. The weather was unbelievable, probably one of the last days of warmth and sun so we made the best of it. Luckily, my day is ending on a high note, even if it started with me doubled up in bed, suffering X(
Now, if I could get my computer to stop crashing and let me finish work, it would be just perfect.
First, I had to go out and film a wedding (you know, the official ceremony at the "court house" which has to happen before the church wedding) and I ran into an old high school crush/hook up. It was so weird. He was one of the "popular" guys back then, and I wasn't, and he never gave me the time of day, until one night at a party. We kissed and he was awful! So I said I was going to the toilet and totally ditched him. I know it was wrong, but it was probably for the best because he was probably going to laugh it up with his friends later anyway. This way I got out unscathed. lol
Then I came home and found a post from Chris (from jeh.com) on our forums! I was so excited, but I had to hide it because there was a friend with me. And when I came back home later, I found the post at the official site about jehf.com XD I'm still not sure I like the idea of my picture being posted, but the post was awesome! Chris and Tony are such sweethearts, them and Jackie just make being a fan so much more fun and... amazing.
I'm also regretting posting that lame ass site info to fill the page, but I never imagined they would quote it! XD Now I know...
Last night I found this:
( It's a video, don't be shy )
Apparently someone really wanted to play Freddy and put this together to convince someone that he should get casted. Obviously he didn't- but don't worry buddy, you had no chance against JEH because he is just that awesome.
What I really like about this, though, is that Freddy is actually on fire! I hope the guys at Platinum Dunes don't get any ideas from this. I mean, sure, Rorschach can go around dispensing free fire* at his own discretion, but I don't think Freddy could pull it off so well.
youquit and I are totally cooking something really cool. I'm so excited. XD
*for those of you haven't seen this yet, you can thank me later.
Doesn't help that my computer takes forever to move files from the external drive to my main drive, and that gives me a lot of boring minutes to start wandering around online. I did make a fab post to wptjeh while waiting, so it's not all wasted time.
It's been raining non stop since last night, which is supposed to be good but looking outside and watching that gray, dark sky makes me want to curl up in bed and do nothing. Maybe later...
