What are my plans to ring in the new year? Oh, well, pretty much the same thing I've been doing since I was thirteen, watching the ball drop in Time Square (three hours later then it actually does..) with my mother, while polishing off an entire bottle of Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider. I know, be jealous, it's going to be an amazing night. One of these years, I will have to go to a real New Year's Eve party. You know, where there are people who aren't my mother. Where I can actually partake in that stupid tradition of getting kissed at midnight.
2011 has been decent, but I'm hoping to make 2012 fantastic.
You know, I observe, I watch. I sit on the sidelines and pay attention to the goings on without actually getting involved myself. And, honestly, with what I've been seeing lately, I just have to say that I am so glad I hardly talk to anyone here anymore. Goodness, you people are.. just.. There really are no words. Covens and Alliances "going to war" and whatnot. Really? You people are aware that this is just a website, right?
People LIVE for VR!
It's this life force they can not control.
Without VR drama, they will loose points,
and possibly, a life!
I love the fact that V.R is a place for forty, fifty, and sixty year old people to come together...and be all, badass.
Hey there's nothing new with that. Just now instead of groups of friends down rating eachother you've got the all powerful covens/alliances doing the same thing. lol
You know me, if you ever wanna chat without drama hit me up :p
I want to find a really good study Bible. The one I got from my mother's co-worker is good, but it's not really a version I'd use for study. I just wish they weren't so expensive.
Oh man, I have such a craving for chocolate, but there isn't any in the house. And I really don't want to go to the store to get some. I shouldn't eat it. But, the television hates me because it keeps showing me Hershey's and Lindt commercials. It's torture.
And Pygmalion is gone. It sucks, because I loved that name, but, I really had no drive to log into the account. I'm sure the new owner will find more use out of it than I ever did.
Would anyone like a free profile? I would love to keep Pygmalion, however, I do not have the funds to get it a Premium Membership. And, while I am able to have up to three free accounts, I find I don't log into it because it's free.
Made it to Yuma without incident. Hanging at my Aunt Sue's house. It's nice being here with my family. I havn't seen any of my cousins, but my cute second cousins, Hailey and Eric are here being all adorable as usual. It really reminds me how much time has passed since I was here last. Hailey and Eric are so big now. So, it should be a fun, if not long, day. I am running on little sleep and just got done with a long drive. A nap would be awesome, but I can't have one. Oh well. Family time is better than sleep anyway.
So I leave at the lovely time of seven in the morning tomorrow for Yuma, Arizona. I shall be spending Christmas with my mom's family for the first time in years. It should be.. Interesting. Anyway, I shall be gone until Monday afternoon or evening, depending on traffic and such on the way back. I won't be totally out of contact, thankfully my phone has internet, so I can still pop on if the mood strikes. Just, don't expect to see me around for the next couple of days.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. :]
Oh man. I want Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I want it now. But, if I do get it, it won't be until next year. Hmm.. Maybe I can go bother Nick for some playing time since he got it early and has to be done playing for a while.
I hate when I get like this. One minute I'm fine, the next minute I can't stop crying. And I push people away. I don't know why, because I want to talk, I can just never find the words. And I don't like showing my weakness. Moments like these, I can't stand that I get so vulnerable. I hate this. I don't mean to be distant, it's just sometimes I can't help myself.
It's like our brains are connected by an invisible cord or some shit.
I don't know. I'm pretty unstable right now as well. That's probably why I'm awake at two forty in the morning instead of asleep when I have to go to fucking work tomorrow.
This sort of thing happens to a lot of us from time to time. Be patient with yourself, it'll pass.
Always here if you need to talk. :)
It's a quarter to three and I am still wide awake. I am not liking this one bit. I'm tired, but not to the point where I can get to sleep.
Times like these when I wish I had someone like me willing to sing me to sleep. My voice may be soothing enough for others to sleep to it, but it does nothing for me.
It's cold and raining outside. Perfect weather for cuddling up in front of a nice, warm fire with someone you love.
I think winter allows for some of the most breathtaking sunsets around here. The air is so crisp, the sky is so blue, and the colors are so vibrant. The reds and pinks and oranges mixing on the horizon, fading into an ever deepening blue. The moon rising in the east.. It's all so beautiful.
We got our Christmas tree today. This is the one thing I must have. I don't care about any other decorations and the like, just give me the tree and I am happy. We got a seven foot Douglas Fir and it's so fluffy! I wanted to get a Noble, I think they are a lot prettier, but damn, they are like ten bucks more than the Douglas of the same hight. I can't fathom paying 80 dollars for a tree, pretty or not. Anyway, I am happy with the one we got, so it's all good. Tomorrow me and Liz get to decorate it, and somehow rearrange the living room furniture to accomadate the tree. Should be fun. So yeah, yay Christmas!
I wake up today to a sore throat, pounding headache and stuffuy nose. Yeah, no bueno. I could hardly talk earlier, my voice nothing more than a raspy whisper, but thankfully it's getting back to normal. Sort of. It's still off and a little raspy, but hey, at least I can still actually talk. Not that I really do much of that during the day..
But, I think the best part of it all was that last night, no nightmares. You have no idea how good it is to have one night of peaceful sleep after so many horrible nights.
I am awake far too early for all that went on last night. Ugh.. Well, I will say I am so thankful I don't get hangovers. I know Liz is going to hate life today. Anyway, since I am up, might as well hit the gym then get ready for my first excersion into a church since Easter.
You know what's delicious? Absinthe. Absinthe, and vodka, and, if you've had enough of the first two, Patrón Silver. So yummy. Me and my sister-in-law and her friend Rose and her other friend who's name I can never remeber all had a little drinking session. And we polished off the bottle of absinthe Keving and Liz brought back for me from Pennsylvania. Try spelling that without spellcheck and a couple of shots of all the above in your system. I got it wrong three times.. But yeah. Yay, absinthe!
Oh, might I add.. Someone needs to buy me the Pocky. All. The. Pocky. I wants it.
What would I like for Christmas? Well, I've put a lot of thought into that question lately, and I finally decided what I actually want.
Arright, so when you get your socks, I want to touch them with my nono place. ;3
No touching my.. ehm, socks.. with your nono place!
Socks are all you want? Well Socks are a good thing...HUGS :) ♥
Lol. Just lol.
So, walking was probably a bad idea. A very, very bad idea. This wind is crazy, I can't remember when it's ever been this bad. As I was out a transformer blew not far from where I was. And now that I'm back the lights keep flickering, and the power keeps shutting off for short intervals. I'm in bed right now, my window is half open, and I am just listening to it howl outside. It sounds so beautiful when it blows past the palm leaves. Though, it is freaking out both Ishtar and Aphrodite, who are curled up under the blanket with me, shaking. I really do love nights like these, though, I doubt I will be getting any sleep tonight.
There's this beautiful calico cat that wanders around our community, it's a stray. And, she now has a habit of coming to our house because we're willing to feed her. It just really makes me sad that someone would give up such a lovely ball of fluff. If we could manage it, we'd take her in ourselves, but we already have three little monsters. And, Mongo wouldn't approve of it. He's not very friendly with the little stray, and has, on more than one occasion, tried to attack her.
I feel so bad though that I can't do more than offer her some food and water. Especially now since it's getting to be a lot colder, and it rains and all that. But, even if we could take her in, I don't think she'd come. She seems to be very afraid of people. She tolerates me, but only just. She's still very nervous should I try to pet her or make a sudden movement. It's such a shame, she's such a lovely cat, and she does seem to have a good temperament, you know, once she accepts you and such. I may attempt to capture her and take her to the no kill shelter in Ontario where I adopted Aphrodite. They are pretty good at handling feral cats, and I'm sure after a while she'd accept people again. And, hopefully she'd be able to find a good home. I'm going to run the idea by my mother, because I really don't like seeing her dirty and hungry and cold. And, there are coyotes that run around here at night, since we live so close to the mountains. It's just not safe. I want to be able to do something for her, even if it's sending her to a shelter. At least she'd be well fed and safe there, even if she didn't get adopted.
