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 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. :)

:D \o/ :D

Holy frak, you guys. Texas and I won a crossword competition at our school, which means we both get $100! $100 for completing three crosswords! It was a Monday, a Tuesday, and then a Friday. Monday and Tuesday we owned in like a combined 45 minutes. Friday's took us an hour and twenty five minutes but we finished! I've never had the perseverance to finish a Friday before. It was all very exciting, and it turns out we're the only group to not have missed a single clue. :D \o/

There is Animal Therapy today, which means I get to go to school early to play with dogs. :D

I go home in just over two weeks. And by home, I mean I'm flying to Detroit, where my dad is going to pick me up and take me to a ball game before we head home. Tigers-Yankees. Curtis in a Yanks uniform will be sad, but somehow I think I'll be able to deal. :D

It's the IOM's birthday today. Possibility of a drunk dial? :D

It's Texas's birthday on Wednesday. Things are gonna be crazy. :D

Next Thursday is the last day of class, then I have two open book take home exams and one open book in class exam. :D

Summer 2010, here I come! :D \o/

Oh, Tigers. Fail.

But the game was still fun (even if we did leave after the 7th to beat traffic), and we were *so close* to the field it was crazy. Safeco was very nice, but I didn't have time before the game started to really explore, and when the game was going, well, I was watching (and keeping score), so I didn't walk around. You can stand right next to the bullpens though, which is SO COOL. We stayed long enough to see Gerald Laird get a hit (finally), sing Take Me Out to The Ball Game (by the way, you can't say "root, root, root for the Mariners" it has too many syllables; Tigers on the other hand...), and get our picture taken so I can show people just how close to the field I really was. A couple of balls came close to us, but not nearly close enough for us to have a shot at getting them. I tried to pick out children I would give the ball too if I got one, but every time I did that kid promptly did something incredibly annoying, and I don't support that behavior. I probably would have just given it to Texas; she would have been happy.

Called the IOM to make him jealous of my awesome seats. Left a message but he called back, which was quite nice as I haven't actually spoken to him in forever. We texted a bit throughout the game (mostly things like "fuck this", haha). It was lovely.

I find it both hilarious and sad that the happy anonymeme was so very quiet. I should have been all excited about baseball on it, but I was too busy getting ready to drive up to Seattle to be on my compute much.

Sleep now. Probably some homework tomorrow, then Cirque du Soleil :D.

Oh, and Newspaper stood me up Thursday, the freakin' douche. I ended up having a fun night with my housemates, but I'm a little pissed. Not too pissed, because mostly I was excited about free dinner and wondering how awkward it would be, but still upset. Psh.

The Best Friend seems to have guys falling all over her. It makes me smile.

I have been trying to update for literally more than 24 hours. LJ hates me.

Good things this week:

- Texas and I both having less homework
- The Boyfriend's parents coming to visit
- Newspaper coming to visit
- Texas and I going to BASEBALL
- The Boyfriend's parents taking us to Cirque du Soleil

Then one week, during which I do not have work, then Texas's 21ST BIRTHDAY, then SCHOOL'S OUT. Basically, things are good. I mean, I still don't really know what's going on, what I want to do with my life, the person I want to be. But as we have a break in schoolwork, I'm realizing how fucking great life is without school's stress, and I realize that I'm not going to have the stress of school in only a couple weeks, and so things are better.

Went to dinner with The Boyfriend's parents last night, am probably going to dinner with Newspaper tomorrow night. And The Boyfriend's parents will probably take me out at least once more. Aka: this is a week of free food. It is glorious.

I've hit a point where I want to be Hunter S. Thompson."I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me."

I just want to fool around and write. And sure, I'm probably just young and I'll probably grow out of it, but I feel like I should do it while I have the chance, right? I'm a strong advocate of bad decisions that don't ruin your life (or anyone else's, for that matter). Things with the IOM (which sort of had the heat turned up) and with Texas show that pretty clearly.

So here's to fucking up without dying, living like I'm alive.

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.

MY LIFE HAS BEEN MADE: [livejournal.com profile] leiascully's Anonymeme


Just spent 15 minutes reading everything and LTHEFUCKOL.

[livejournal.com profile] leiascully and [livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero have [livejournal.com profile] trolliepop and [livejournal.com profile] ninamazing right now and I am so jealous I can't even handle it. Who would have ever thought I'd be dying to go to Arkansas? :P

Speaking of you crazy kids--I need a cornbread recipe sans sugar so I can try it out and probably decide that I'm totally a Yankee and WHATEVER I WILL USE SUGAR IF I WANT. But yes, I am willing to try the other side at least once.

T-minus six days to big drama to happen with the Inappropriate Older Man, T-minus six days to TIGERS BASEBALL GAME, T-minus seven days to go visit the Boyfriend.

Life is good. Fangirls make it even better.
