Subject:A bit later than usual, but...
Time:4:41 am.
...let's start the new year with something old, shall we?

The Yearly MemeCollapse )

All in all par for the course for me, I think, other than the fact I had one month with no posts. I knew I'd been posting less and less, but not that bad.

Let's do a simple summary. As of right now, I am: 21 years old. In a committed relationship. Possibly pansexual. Sitting on my bed with my laptop eating what's left of my mom's homemade potato soup. Living here at home with my mom and stepdad while I pay off college loans. Working two jobs, getting apx. 50-70 hours a week between them. Insured, but still have not been to the doctor since the last time I lost coverage. Cursing the damn underwater zones in KoL. Both excited and nervous about seeing my boyfriend tomorrow for the first time in 3 months. Currently succeeding with my New Year's resolution to kick a bad habit most IRL people didn't even know I had. Currently exploring a new religous path. Tired of the house smelling like peanut brittle. Missing all my old friends, but am terrified to reconnect with them. Angry at my muse, or distinct lack of one. Far too afraid to go to the dentist and see just how bad a shape my teeth are in. Still unable to shake my inexplicable hatred of brushing said teeth. Unwilling to go to bed, even though I really should get some rest. Grateful for my friends, but simultaneous wishing that they didn't exist. Tired of being told how attractive I am, even though it makes me feel good at the time. Way too distracted to finish this list.

That should do for now. Love to all.

Time:3:30 pm.
Ok, late jumping on the bandwagon, but cards! I wants to send them. Give me addresses in a comment, I will screen them. Get them to me before the 19th please, I'll try to make that my send date.

And to anyone wanting to send cards whose deadline I haven't passed yet, I'll post a locked entry with my addy.

Just over two weeks to NaNoWriMo. I'm deciding whether I want to post my story online or not. If so, I'll put it on here under a custom filter, and put up a post for people to sign up on. If you're going to be heartbroken if I don't share it, lemme know now, because I think this one might be actually be publishable as young adult fiction if I complete it and am therefore confused as to whether I should put it online or not.

Subject:I would just say I'm sorry...
Time:4:25 pm.
...but it's not that simple. I'm not sorry for my actions. I'm sorry for the effects they had. I have my reasons, none which are really good enough but there they are. I've been agonizing over this for months and months, trying to psych myself up enough for it, and I couldn't. I think people still see me as the innocent, helpful, overwhelmingly optimistic thing I was in high school. I'm not. I'm bitter. I get jealous and resentful. And while I still want the best for all of my friends, I don't always want to be there to see it. So that's that. I am sorry, but I know that doesn't help.

Subject:Con V braindump
Time:2:51 am.
Mood: sleepy.
Thursday: Arrived in AZ. Was greeted by a Gergface. Came to the RFR house and got settled in. Grabbed snacks, went and raided Teh Clubhouse. Real food happened sometime before going back to get changed for Rocky Horror. I've been told we did well enough, and there is video but I refuse to watch it. I don't wanna know what I looked like running around in a maid outfit and/or half-naked.

Friday: SUSHI! Om nom nomming ensued, and was tasty. Had an emo attack and slept through the clan dinner. Dave and Busters was made of fail and wouldn't let Gerg in. Xly was made of win though, and gave him money to go get me drunk with. Less-than-three Xly long time, she didn't have to do that.

Saturday: Picnic thingy. Indoors ftw. Food was ok, playing games with people was fun. Actually colored a vagina this year. :D Played a lot of KoL-themed mafia, which I've somehow acquired a copy of. Yay. Went fooding, hurrily got all gothed up, and went to the concert. LUFF. Totally Radd had both a vocodor (which was a laptop program, but still) and a keytar, but kinda failed otherwise. Meh. Minibosses were good again, MC Lars was fun. Frontalot made me a happy happy fangirl, as I threw a black rose for the second year in a row and he picked it up and played with it throughout Goth Girls. (At some point during the night there was a drink called Purple Haze, and it was amazing. It had pinapple juice and was purple and very alcoholic, but other than that is it a mystery. A delicious, delicious mystery.)

Sunday: Pool-age, Rock Band, and general hanging out until Organ Stop Pizza. Food was mreh, but the organ music was pretty damn sweet, even if the dancing cat puppets were rather creepy. Was going to go to karoke, but ended up just chillaxing at the house. There was booze and Rock Band, so really there wasn't much of a difference. There were also games, more pool-age and more hanging out.

Monday: Boat trip on Canyon Lake. Yay Failboat and Winboat. (Mostly yay Failboat, since that was my boat.) Thought I escaped sunburn since I slathered on the SPF 50 and because I still was humancolored when we left to return from the lake, but on the car ride to In-N-Out Burger I grew more and more pink. Sigh. After that more games and hanging out here at the RFR house.

This continued to the wee hours of this morning, when Gerg and I grabbed a nap before dropping him off at the airport just now. My plane heads out around noon-thirty, I get back in Indiana around 22:00. Woo time travel, and I didn't even take my riboflavin. (Nor am I taking Riboflavin with me. I'm not quite sure where he's from and doubt he nor other people would appreciate it.)

I brought a signature book with me, but it got lost on the first day and never turned up. Oh well. Also, for some reason I was not in a picture-taking mood, so anyone with pictures should tell me where to find them. Please.

Possible ranty emo post later, but not right now because I don't want people to get the wrong impression. Con was fun and I love my clannies and friends and stuff.

Subject:Con, where my love life's waiting silently for me...
Time:9:43 am.
Mood: indescribable.
Sitting here at an internet cafe at the Detroit airport. Just saw Al Sharpton. He came in looking for hard-boiled eggs, walked away pissed when the hostess told him (truthfully) they didn't have any, was hunted down by staffers here who knew who he was, came back, had hard-boiled eggs, and just left.

Now, I rather despise the man. I really do. But I'm still kinda all, "Did I really just see that?"

Tired and excited and stressed and nervous and elated and and and...

Subject:Sweet jeebus this is a god-awful picture
Time:6:37 am.
Mood: exhausted.
Take a picture of yourself right now.
Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.
Post that picture with NO editing.
Post these instructions with your picture.

(meme stolen from God knows how many KoLers at this point)

So yeah. This is me after a night shift, after working the morning at teh pizzajob, with only an hour nap. Now normally I'd be asleep at this point, but I have to do an errand for Dad and instead get no sleep before my next pizza shift.

Normally I'm not quite so dead. But yeah. I feel as bad as I look.

Subject:New labor on Labor Day. Ironic?
Time:6:06 am.
Mood: peaceful.
First night at the new job ended 'bout an hour ago. I think it went really well, and I really enjoyed it. Here's hoping that it doesn't suck whenever I'm not teamed up with Sionnain, who along with having one of the awesomest name spellings ever is like a cross between me, ADH, and Lynore. I'd say lovechild but I think she's older than at least two of us, if not all three.

Got a new NaNoWriMo idea on the way home. Hopefully it won't look stupid after I go to sleep and wake up, but I think it'll be easier to attempt to write than my current idea. My current idea is a lot more realistic than anything I've tried before, about an old woman who dies and goes on to an "afterlife" where people show up at the age they died and grow younger. The new idea is much more in the silly sci-fi/fantasy vein. It'll be a superhero story, about someone who has two different superhero personalities, and how she balances them both. I think it has potential. I have no idea how I'll have the time to even do my yearly attempt, since any time I'm not at either job I'll probably be needing to be asleep, but we'll see. November looks like it might be crazy regardless of the double work schedule though.

Ok, tiredness is suddenly upon me. I dunno whether to sleep for three hours (I have to do something for pizzaboss at nine) or just try to tough it out and crash after that.

Subject:Her Majesty's a pretty nice girl...
Time:2:44 am.
Mood: highly caffinated.
Happy birthday Clee! I hope it's a good one, in all the brightest shades of green and yellow.

There are 6 kittens living under our hot tub building here at home, and they are ADORABLE. And young; their eyes are still the most georgous type of blue. The mother either abandonded them or got hit by a car or something, because we haven't seen her in at least a week, and they were hungry when we took them milk and kitten chow. Three of the six have warmed up to us, but the other three are still terrified and are only now starting to come entirely out of the hole when one of us big tall scary things are around, and even then they come no where near us and are extremely skittish. But we have hope. The runt is a tiny little grey tigerstriped thing, and she is fearless. She climbs all over me when I'm sitting on the ground, and explores everything. There's also a little girl who looks somewhat like my current cat, and a little grey and white boy. (We think. They're still so small that we're not 100% sure on the genders.) Two of the shy ones are twins, so much so that we didn't realize there were six instead of five of them until today. The other shy one is black and white, and has a scratch or something under its right eye. We were rather worried about it, as it looked pretty sickly at first, but it appears to be healing now that it's getting some nutrition. I will post pictures as soon as I get Mom to email them to me.

So, if anyone who lives near me needs a kitten, or knows someone trustworthy who does, please let me know. I love them all dearly but there's no way we can keep any of them.

Subject:I spent the night, slept in the damn BATHTUB, was her target, and STILL ended up killing her later.
Time:12:59 am.
Mood: mischievous.
This question is mostly for the people I went to highschool with, and particularly targeted at chrisamaphone, since she introduced this to us and was the ringmaster for most of it. But if anyone else has suggestions I won't turn them down either.

I was perusing the Steve Jackson Games site earlier (OMG CHIBITHULU WAAAAAAAAAAANT) when I stumbled upon the Killer game. Now this brought back many happy memories, because while I never won, I kicked a hell of a lot more ass in that game than anyone ever expected me to. I desperately desperately desperately want to introduce it to my workplace. Does anyone have the ruleset we used? (Or anyone have a ruleset that they have personally used with great success) There'd have to be boundries, like no killing where customers can see, or letting it get in the way of actually working. But oh it'd be awesome.

Subject:But will he find he can't handle it when it all turns sour?
Time:10:53 pm.
Mood: pessimistic.
So, I think I have discovered part of the reason I'm not getting anywhere with my songwriting: I'm not willing to share my song. That isn't saying that I don't want to get it into a form where I can start singing it and recording it and the like. The thing is, I have such a specific vision of what I want out of it that I'm very loathe to trust another musician with my idea, because it won't come out 100% the way I want it. And considering I don't play an instrument, this is a big hurdle. If I want to get the music I hear out of my head and into the real world, I need someone who can play to play it for me. And...yeah. The moral: Teh Qellzorz is dumb.

Another option is finally getting my guitar fixed and learning how to play it, which is something I should do regardless. But...I've been planning on doing that for months and months, and every day I just oversleep and avoid the world. So even as I sit and listen to some of the music that inspired it, I'm forced to realize that my song will likely never be a reality.

Subject:An old meme I haven't seen in a while...
Time:12:31 am.
Mood: relaxed.
Clicky!Collapse )

Spent a much needed Wednesday/Thursday in Bloomington, which consisted mostly of drinking wine, eating cheese, and playing Munchkin. So much love for that game. Unfortunately, I at the time had forgotten it was Wednesday, so I kinda blew off my radio show. X_x It was not on purpose, and I'm very sorry.

Time now to see if I qualify for health insurance from the state government, and finally start working on this song idea that's been eating at me for three weeks now.

Subject:Karokee (But no beeah. Well, not for me. Give me Mike's, or hard cider.)
Time:1:49 am.
Mood: amused.
One of Dad's most recent acquisitions is a kareoke machine, the professional-looking type, with two wireless mics to go with it. I'm not really sure why he got it, but it's been kinda fun and I'm not one to complain. I was at WalMart tonight, so I swung back to the electronics section to see if I could find any decent kareoke CDs, since the one he got doesn't have very many songs that I know well enough to do anything with. I picked one up, skimmed the tracklist quickly, saw a couple of John Denver songs and Sweet Caroline (which was the selling point, since we both <3 Neil Diamond, and that song in particular because it's my middle name), grabbed it, and went on and bought dinner and doggie shampoo (among other things).

Went to Dad's, and after eating and giving Casey a bath, I popped in the CD. I was walking back to the couch while it loaded, so I didn't see the screen. The very first thing that started playing was OOGA CHAKKA HOOGA HOOGA OOGA CHAKKA.

I just about crapped my pants.

Yes, the kareoke CD I bought has the version of Hooked On A Feeling that David Hasselhoff covered. I was laughing way too hard to even attempt to sing along. Other gems included Paradise By The Dashbord Light (Meatloaf) and You've Got A Brand-New Key (Melanie), but that song alone made the CD sooo worth it. Being the total Hoffophile that I am, I'm halfway attempted to load that onto my computer and cover it myself, since I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell that I could get Doc Trauma to do it.

*goes back to watch the music video for the umpteenth time, still giggly madly*

Subject:Of HAMs and hounds...
Time:2:38 am.
Mood: squee!.
...unrelatedly, I just accidently typed that as Hamas. X.x Dear CIA, please no be killing me for typos.

I can has callsign! KC9OAM. Nothing too exciting, but the fact that it's in the database means I can start playing with Dad's radios now, and also means he'll send out for mine any day now. (Incidently, it also means I passed my test on Saturday and I forgot to post about it.) I think I'm gonna wait to get my vanity call until I take the next test, because then I can get it all done in one fell swoop.

However, already I have been overshadowed. There is a new HAM in the family.Collapse )

So I've been a bit distracted due to that. Overall it's been a great week, despite a lot of random freakout moments and just feeling angry for no reason. The good overshadows the bad by far.

Subject:HAM is good, provided it's not the pig product...
Time:11:52 pm.
Mood: creative.
So, I'm taking my HAM test for my technican's license on Saturday. Dad and I were hoping that I'd be able to go straight for the General, or even the Extra, but after taking the practice tests it's obvious I'm not at all ready for that. I need to learn about impedence and resistance and parallel circuits and the like first. But the Tech should be a breeze. *crosses fingers*

Now, this leaves me with a question. Every HAM gets a call-sign, one that's assigned by the FCC. However, there is the option to change your callsign, provided the one you want is available. I have a few ideas, and want to run them by people for some feedback.


~KC9BMB (for somewhat obvious reasons)
~WB9CVU (my dad's old call)
~Just keep the one the FCC gives me

(The 9 in both listed calls is my region, so any call I get will have that in it.)

Relatedly, he said he would buy me my first radio (no accessories), so I need to start researching those too. We're looking at a handheld, because it's easy enough to convert them to a mobile or main station if you know what you're doing, or have someone else who does. *cough*Dad*cough*

*wanders off to take more practice tests*
