For some reason, all I can write lately is fanfic, but at least I’m writing something, eh?

Uh, driving home tonight, someone was driving down the hill that goes up to my house. Uh, the hill up to my house is a one way, two-lane street. Apparently, some drunk asshole decided to drive down it, though. Seriously. ARGH. Not cool.

You know what is incredibly awesome and wonderful, though? My bff Pete drew me. And this is incredibly flattering, because he’s the best artist I know or will ever know, plus I love him, so it’s doubly sweet. It’s here. Thank you, darling. I love it so. (It’s from

) i dig it

& Okay, one last thing. If you’re familiar with The Lawrence Welk Show, you know how hilariously bland and cheesy it was and how they would often take pop music of the time and make it as bland and boring as humanly possible, taking all rhythm or beat or anything fun out of it, and have really bland, Stepford-y/Village of the Damned young people sing it. It’s fucking hilarious. My grandparents used to have my cousins & I watch it, considering it to be “wholesome entertainment,” and I didn’t even realize until I was older that the episodes we were then watching were already 20 or 30 years old. Heh. Also, when we took a high school fieldtrip to a monastery in Montana, it was the only thing we were allowed to watch on the little t.v. in the basement. & Now, on Saturday nights, when it’s re-run on PBS, Mike & I & sometimes Dan always watch it & laugh our asses off. Tonight was an episode from the mid-’70s, I’d say, and it was this “concept show” where it was supposed to be taking place on a cruise ship. This involved bad cheesy early green screen technology projecting waves and stuff behind the singers. OMG, it was hilarious.

Thanks for reading :) more soon. xo

red shoes, tonight, at work

My favorite red shoes, taken last night in the bathroom at work. I had this sailor girl outfit going on last night, which made me happy, as it's the first time in forever that I've bothered wearing anything other than my “uniform” of striped skirt/black sweater/black flats to work.

& Goddammit, stupid Hoopfest is this weekend, which means that downtown and the surrounding areas are literally closed off for three days. DUDE. And it gets bigger every year, which means more closed off areas each year. Dammit. I was driving north to Mike's last night after work & kept thinking to myself “why the fuck are there so many people wandering the streets? And why are there so many cars from California, Oregon, Wyoming, etc.?” And then was like “OH, GODDAMN HOOPFEST” Ack. The bridge I usually take to Mike's is closed for construction (argh) & I think that the other way north will be closed for stupid basketball. Damn. Seriously. Stupid sports events.

more soon. xo

- Serge Gainsbourg gives me such a boner. I would've hopped up on that without hesitation. Rawr. The reason I bring Serge up in the first place is that I'm listening to Comic Strip on Itunes at the moment and the album art just popped up & I was like RAWR RAWR RAWR Hornypants:

B000001EIC.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_

I've been listening to various French pop all afternoon & have tried to sing like Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot, and Anna Karina, but pretty much failed at all attempts. I think I can pull of a little Birkin, though. Heh. And I probably shouldn't be singing the breathy, dirty French lyrics with the windows open and the music up really loud, but whatever. My neighborhood is loud. I doubt that anyone cares that I'm singing dirty French lyrics really loudly.

- Here is me, last night. I really dig my hair right now:

twitchy-nose mcgee, before showering tonight

& Ha, yes, I constantly have red lipstick on, even right before I'm about to step into the shower. I feel naked without it.

& This is terribly emo, from last night, when I was feeling horrible:

am 29 & am a failure at life

& This is from a few nights ago, taken outside on my porch:

on my porch tonight

more soon! xo

& OMG, pardon the fandomcrack/squeeing, but JEBUS, SHATNER IS GOING TO DESIGN A MY LITTLE PONY. OMG! Like many of you who also grew up in the '80s, I love My Little Pony and if you add that love to my MASSIVELY INSANE Shatner love, it kind of blows my mind. If I had a Shatner designed My Little Pony, I'd have to construct one of those awesome glass cases that hold brilliantly lovely and valuable things in museums, and then I'd put it in my living room and everytime I walked by it, I'd be like “Hey pony, did you know that SHATNER MADE YOU??” and I'd jump up and down and clap and giggle. Hee! Also, the headline of that article is: “Sunshine, rainbows, James Spader?” to which I say, “yes, yes, and HELLS YES!” heh.

My new favorite commercial. OMG!

SHATNER +
A JET PACK +
BABIES (THEY'RE TOTALLY MY BABIES) +
A LEMUR +
SHATNER SPEAKING LEMUR-ESE =
_______________________

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Oh, man. It's like they went inside one of my random Shatner dreams & were like “let's make this into a commercial!”

Ha, yes. Pardon the insanity. But I love it to bits.

xxoo

Ha, Mikey & I went up to my parents' house tonight for a bit for a family birthday & my mom gave me the entertainment section from today's newspaper, because there is a big article on Shatner & lots of cute photos & a floating head on the front page of the section. Heh! I was totally excited & ended up reading a bunch of the article aloud to Mike while we ate pizza.

my mom knows i love shatner, so she saved me this part of the sunday paper. awesome!

!

My favorite quote:

“'Lemurs,' William Shatner is explaining through mouthfuls of sushi, 'are primitive animals of many varities.'”

Ha, so random! And perfectly Shatner-y.

Also: take my advice and do not put pink lemonade powder into a glass full of Diet Coke. Because, um, it will kind of explode. All over your counter. And your floor. Yeah. And then your latenight soup snack will get cold as you clean it up using five kitchen towels and you'll also miss the first part of the Star Trek episode that's on t.v. & that you really want to watch. So, yeah, keep that powdered drink mix out of the diet sodas :)

Photos ahoy!

A couple of chalkboard shots. The first was taken after my first night class of the summer was over & the second is of something I wrote on the board on Thursday night. It's a quote from part of our book & I like it a lot:

& I took this today:

hi there

Lately, in my good moments, I have fluttery, soft, pretty Hope inside. And in the bad moments, I forget about both the existence of hope and the possibility that it could even ever exist. I'm used to ups & downs, though, obviously. I just want to be able to see that hope, that possibility, and to think to myself, “wow, that may actually be reachable.” I need that. & I want to believe that I deserve good things like that.

My pms is driving me nuts. I keep having to remind myself that that's what it is and that I'm not losing my mind. Sigh.

Anyway, should attempt sleep now. More soon.

Photo time!

On my porch, one night last week:

tonight, on my porch

Playing with the time-lapse setting & doing a tribute to the opening titles of my favorite show
(mission: impossible):

)

New dolls! Yay! So excited! :) :

) & i loved monchhichis as a kid, so that little guy makes me happy, too

(she's named fenchurch, after one of my favorite fictional characters ever:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minor_characters_from_The_Hitchhike…

i love so many passages that feature her, but this is probably my favorite:

“and then, one thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. this time was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.
sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, the earth was unexpectedly demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass, and so the idea was lost, seemingly forever.
this is her story…”
(from douglas adams's so long, and thanks for all the fish)

:) )

) so excited!

(she's named cinnamon, after my favorite t.v. character, cinnamon carter:
