I haven't properly updated in a month. I'm on LJ every day, apparently I just lurk now.

Life has been really good the last couple of weeks. Thursday was the meteor shower, and enough (but less than I would have liked) people showed up, and the meteors were AWESOME, so it was really fun. And then yesterday my mom and I and my Other Sisters and Other Mother (#2) went tubing down a river for four hours, just lazing around. Twas grand.

The Inappropriate Older Man is recently back from Peru. I have to see him soon since I am leaving for Portland in A WEEK. Crazy.

Work is really fun--I adore one of the guys I work with and like a few others quite well. It's sad to think we'll probably not talk much after a week, especially since he doesn't use facebook that much. :(

lots of information on my weird-from-the-outside relationship plus a bit of panic )

Anyway. Happier things. Anniversary with Other Sister tonight = Olive Garden then girlygirlygirly sleepover reminiscing about our former days. Seeing the Inappropriate Man sometime soon. Going back to Ptown in a week. ♥

I've failed at updates lately and am failing again. But I am lurking around here, also failing to comment on anything but [livejournal.com profile] no_takebacks (Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing's Iron Man fic!.)

I am about to head out to Chicago for a free She & Him concert in Millennium Park, preceded by a day with my actual sister and my Other Sister. There will be carousing, and lazing by the pool, and meeting the sister's boyfriend. It should be a good day.

Officially signed up for Kink Bingo and quite excited about that. Will probably delve into the Iron Man fandom as well, because I love Pepper Potts and I don't think anyone's as kinky as Tony Stark. (Kink bingo also makes me think of [livejournal.com profile] leiascully's It's Kink But You Don't Ever Tell Her, which is just absolute love.

Go watch She & Him be adorable.

ETA: I completely forgot to mention that the title of this entry is from [livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero's explanation of why she loves Kara Thrace. She managed to articulate her feelings a lot better than I've ever been able to.

Today has been so wonderful. Huge crowd for softball and hanging out afterward. I love my family and my other families and my LIFE right now. I am sunkissed but not sunburned. Best Friend made me this awesome bracelet, which matches hers, since I liked hers so much. :D

Also, this, which is totally awesome:

I just took my dog for a walk, not even a very long one, and she is now hardcore snoring on the floor next to me. Adorable.

Oh my goodness, I felt all grown up today. One, when someone was telling me where I had to deliver things cartons that I had to deliver, she said, "That goes to Missy and that goes to Nate." whereas I'm used to only calling these people Mrs. & Mr. So I felt all grown up that I been upgraded to first name status. And then, when I delivered them, one of the kids in the class goes, "Who's that lady?!" I'm old enough to be a lady to middle schoolers, bahahahaha. Cracked me up.

Today is Operation: Pong Table. Other Sister shall be calling soon and we will go buy some plywood and some paint, and get to work. Red & white stripes, blue triangles with white stars where the cups go. America, fuck yeah! :P

And I haven't really geeked out about television on here in a while. But after last night, I must!

Castle )

House )

So today is Operation: Pong Table, tomorrow my brother is probably coming up with some friends, Thursday I'm going to Chitown with my mom (AND FLO!) to see my sister and her boyfriend, Friday we head down to Nationals! It will be the best. Best Friend and Flo and Cotton and Color (oh, boys from high school and our nicknames we even had for you then) are all going to be there! Epic win! When I first decided to go I was hoping the IOM would be there too, but now I neither know nor really care that much because I am so excited for the reunion of so many people from the old team. :D It will be such fun!

I've been so very happy lately.

I spent most of the day sleeping in MY OWN BED. I took my dog for a walk with my mom. My parents and I went out to breakfast/lunch. My cat cuddled with me all last night. I have THE LAKE right outside my window. Life is goooooooood.

Plus, baseball, which was amazing and MY DAD CAUGHT A FOUL BALL. Well, when I say caught, I mean it was rocketed toward our seats, I ducked, some people behind us tried to catch it, it ricocheted a couple times, and landed in the my brother's seat while he was buying us hot dogs. And my dad picked it up. :D So now I have a foul ball sitting on my dresser. Normally, I would give it to a little kid, but I was too excited. Plus, I texted the IOM about it and he didn't believe me. So I had to keep it to show it to him. :P

thoughts as I watched Monday's Castle )

Moral of the story: Trucco's freakin' gorgeous but Demming makes Castle, and thus me, sad. Though he makes up for some of it by being so darn pretty.

really good questions from liveonthesun )

Tomorrow will be baseball on TV (it was a rainout tonight so they're doing a day/night double header! :D), with Rick Porcello ♥ pitching. Excellent. Hopefully I will see my other sister, who should get a better nickname than other sister. In the evening, the 'rents and I are going out to dinner at a place where there'll be something like a 12-piece band playing--and various other people might come. I reallllly hope so! I've missed my other families.

Oh, also, Hill and I have a weekly word goal. We're going to write and send things to each other every Sunday, at least 1000 words. It will force us to keep writing and also to share and get feedback, which is something I often fail at doing. I'm going to try to not cheat and therefore not write fanfiction, but I hear there's another [livejournal.com profile] bsg_pornbattle this summer, and if I'm writing anywhere near the eight pieces I wrote for the last one, I won't necessarily have time to keep up with original fiction. But, anyway, I'm excited for a summer of writing.

Plus, I did a few crunches and push-ups today. I hope to increase the number as I go, but just doing any is a big first step for me. So, root me on. :)

In 24 hours I'm gonna be with my dad and my brother, sitting in Comerica park! It's kind of a crazy feeling.

I've been excited to go home forever, and of course I still am, but I'm terrible at goodbyes. I always cry and hold The Boyfriend and decide I don't want to leave, not ever. Probably within three weeks of being home I'll want to come back to Portland, but I know I don't want to stay here for the summer. I wish I could transplant my favorite people to my favorite place. It's home. And this summer might be my last summer that I can spend there, so. Obviously I want to go. It's just tough leaving people behind.

And this post is not at all me procrastinating from packing. No, not at all.

questions from coffeesuperhero )
olaf47: (smile)

It was quite anti-climatic, as I finished with a take home test. Usually it's something more like finishing a test, turning it in, and walking out of one of the academic buildings for the last time. Instead, it was, "Well. Um. I guess I'll email this to him. I'm done." But still very exciting.

BASEBALL SOON. We have ridiculously good tickets. I don't know exactly where, but in the "on-deck circle" section, which stretches from dugout to dugout, including behind home plate. *dies*

Mom seems nervous that I am sad that I'm coming home for the summer--since Texas, Roommate Boy (who will be Roommate Boy again for real!), and The Boyfriend are staying out here, together. But Portland doesn't have the Lake, or a beach, or les filles, or my family or Other Families, or Tigers baseball, or the IOM, or that feeling of home. Nowhere but Michigan will ever be home to me, especially in the summer. And this summer, the aunt and uncle aren't living with us, so I'll have my room again and much more peace and quiet. I will bike everywhere and write everything and I can't wait.

It's funny, the way things change. Monday was...joyous, really. And then all of this.

one of the worst weeks of my life )

But there was an All-American party last night that was really quite fun, and I spent most of it campaigning for The Boyfriend (he's running for Chief Justice of the school's peer review group thingy). And tonight we're having another Africa party, which right now is stressful, but I'm sure will be a lot of fun. I think the Tent Wife's coming, and she makes things better.

After being so happy, so certain about things, now I'm just hurt and confused.

Watching Dexter, I was really excited when one of my favorite characters returned. And then said favorite character had to go and die. Way to suck.

I've been porning it up; almost four pieces done for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_pornbattle and a fifth started. Having not really written fanfiction (or smut) for a while, it's quite fun.

Dad's home from getting a total knee replacement, and he's doing really well. He can move around a lot more than I expected. We're hanging out, watching basketball together tonight. And he lets me be on the computer and watch Dexter with headphones in the same room as him, which is fun--I like being able to spend time with people without being forced into conversation or watching/listening/doing something you don't want to do. And then if we want to talk, we can just talk.

Anonymeme yesterday got a bit wanky, which made me sad, especially since it was the first one I'd done for a while. I guess I just think of it as such a happy thing, and yeah it'd be nice to be recognized but just because someone doesn't insert your username doesn't mean you're not liked or they think they're better than you. It's not about recognition; it's about fun and flail and discussions you might not be comfortable having if it weren't anonymous. (And good comma use, of course).

On Happy Pets on Facebook, I breeded my cats and the baby's finally grown enough to name, and Facebook suggested I name it Leia. How could I resist? Leia, the daughter of Gatsby and Mrs. Landingham. :D

Apparently I haven't posted anything but memes and a fic since New Year's. Oops.

My New Year's was amazing. All of my friends bailed on me (not amazing) and so I went to a family friend's with my parents and got drunk with a bunch of fifty year olds. We played word games and I kicked their asses. Twas grand.

Since New Year's, not much. Lazing around. Hanging with my Other Family. Enjoying coldness and familiarity.

And then today my dad got his knee replaced, which is kind of a big deal. It went really well. He'll either be out of the hospital Thursday or Friday, so my life's planned around that. Going in early tomorrow to be there for his PT. I'm gonna skip out for lunch etc. with a friend, give my dad some peace and have some fun myself.

This is the week of men actually )

Back to school on the 14th. I can't wait.

[livejournal.com profile] bsg_pornbattle. My life is so win.

Sorry I've been AWOL. The boy came to town. :D

Christmas )

On Christmas, I took the time to type up something I'd written in Africa: honey, it lights up the sky. Cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] fluff_friday too.

Boxing Day of Love (aka les filles, the IOM and the Boyfriend, oh my) )

After he left I went to lunch with Flo. No matter how long we've been apart, we always fall back together without anything missing. It's perfect. Our lunch lasted even longer than that of me and the IOM. We just talked and talked and talked. I think the restaurant workers thought we were a bit crazy.

The Brother has also been around. He got back from Ecuador last night (his girlfriend is studying there and Christmas is also her birthday). I missed him tons. The fam sat around and watched sports together. :D :D :D

Tomorrow a party is planned chez moi. And by that I mean girl party with only like six of us, but that kind of makes it better, in my opinion.

PMSing Christmas week is not very fun.

Sorry if that's too much information.

Yesterday was really good for the first half, and pretty shitty for the second half. I haven't seen anyone but family friends since I've been home. It's partly my fault (because I am tired and selfish and feel people should want to see me enough to make an effort) and partly their fault (the effort is minimal) and partly no one's fault (sickness, family, etc). Nonetheless, I was sad for it yesterday.

So today I decided not to be bitchy or sad or ruin anything. )

Almost Christmas, Charlie! (Anyone love The Best Christmas Pageant Ever? Anyone?--Speaking of: I want to heckle my mom as she tells the Christmas story at church tonight. She'll say something about naming the baby Jesus and I'll yell: "I would have named him Bill!" If none of my flist knows The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, this story has been completely meaningless.)

Happy Christmas, kids. I hope it's a good one.
