I have moved

Um, hi, everyone.

I think it's pretty clear that I don't post much here anymore. Or, you know, at all. It's been a great four years, but I think the time has come to officially close up shop. Everything will stay here, because it's a record of my life, but it's not likely to be updated again.

I also reserve the right to change my mind and come back here. *g* I love Blue Roses and my domain, so who can tell. But for now, good bye.

As always: if you think you know me in real life, please move on. This was me in college and if you want to know what I was like? I will tell you. With far fewer exclamation points and obnoxious emoticons. Thanks.

The countdown beings.

It's May! How on earth is it May already? My year is speeding by.

I set out to do something cool in each month this year. I think I skipped February. In March, I got accepted into grad school. In April...I think I skipped April. In May, I shall attend MWC with Melissa. It'll be an adventure. *g*

Only 5 more weeks of Noneck. I will miss her so badly. Then a summer "off" with only 3-4 jobs, and grad school in the fall. Ack! I need to slow down, enjoy myself, do more things. Preferably without spending any more money.

11 days until Lead Awareness Day!!

Update!

I updated my fic page! Go me! I am so bad at updating. LOL I added in a new section: Miscellaneous Fic. Currently home to SGA, CSI and BabySitters Club. I'm quite pleased with the way the graphic turned out on the main page - half of it was added in by me. LOL

Next up on that site, I want my original stuff to have it's own site/design and to try and put up a drabble page on it and the Zoo.

Oh. My. Word.

I've been horrid about updating this year. It's mainly been quiet. I spent a few months applying to grad schools for library science, working 5 jobs, etc etc.

Today I came home to a thin envelope from UWisconsin. I figured, thin, clearly another rejection, year four, who's surprised?

Me. Because it wasn't a rejection. It was an acceptance. I am in graduate school! It said congratulations! I am over the moon.

It bears repeating. I AM IN GRAD SCHOOL! I am a graduate student. I am working towards my masters in library science. Who would have thunk it? I'm extraordinarily pleased and excited. I imagine I will continue feeling like this until I get the first tuition bill.....LOL

Meanwhile, I celebrate. :)

Ostrich

Ostrich! The restaurant had ostrich!!

Years ago, when Melissa and I began our tradition of having one dinner a year at this ultra expensive restaurant, she had ostrich. (And I had the nachos appetizer because I was horrified at all the prices.) She made me take a bite of ostrich (I mean, really. *Ostrich*??) and despite myself, I adored it. And regretted not ordering it. So we went back the next year...and there was no ostrich. I lusted after ostrich while I enjoyed venison the next several years. And then came tonight.

Ostrich was back! Ostrich was back! And hot damn, was it good.

(SO was my marnier margarita that is making spelling a challenge. I say I want to drink more and stuff and then I go out and realize that it takes, like, 3 sips to get me dizzy spinny. But for the first time ever, I finished a drink here. Actually, most times when I go out I don't finish my drink. But I did tonight and it was good.)

Theme of the night was chocolate. Crabmeat tamale with mole, ostrich with mole and a mexican brownie. I'm so stuffed up that I'm gonna go watch the new GIlmore and take Benedryl and sleep. But they had ostrich! I'm so excited.

I told her my picture for that challenge and she came up with a murder suicide. Gotta love her. And then I showed her the 350 words I had - full of death and abandonment. Because of that's of course what you think of when you see empty deck chairs in a lush green summer lawn. If you're us.

I also spent my Gap gift card + $50 tonight, since it was down the block. A cute new bra, a white lacy sleeveless tank and a cute white/grey rugby hoodie. I love it all muchly. I love the Gap. And I love ostrich.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, and Happy Hanukah! We had a very quiet day today....mom and dad had to wake me and Josh up at 9 because they were getting impatient. *giggle* We opened presents and heated up the coffee cake and breakfast casserole that mom and I made last night, and played with toys. Heeee!

Joshy loves his new Cube games, especially NBA Courtside, which he asked for all last night. It was cute. Dad is way into his new DVDs. Mom hasn't taken off her necklace yet. And ooh, I got such cute things!! I love my new pink messenger bag. Finally, a purse where I don't have to choose what book to bring based on the tiny space available! I also got a gorgeous Irish sweater, fleece jacket, Mickey tshirt, Thomas Kinkade paint by numbers set and a bio of Abraham Lincoln. And PSPx for Winnie! I'm way excited. I also got scented pens and a bracelet in my stocking. So pretty.

So, quiet day. I stayed up by the tree on Winnie, while everyone else scattered. I read Yuletide fics and sesa fics and played with PSP. All in all, a quiet, relaxing, fun day. A good Christmas.

Now to find some leftover Chinese to nibble on, with mom's homemade ginger ale. Happy Holidays, everyone!!

Christmas time is here

Our big tree is up! It looks so pretty. The last three ornaments we put on were from Disney World last January. God, I loved that vacation so much. I loved Disney so much. It was wonderful.

I can't believe it's only a week until Christmas. That's just crazy. I have one more gift to buy, and it's actually C's birthday present. Not bad. Well, and stocking stuffers for mom and dad. I'll get those in town on Monday or Tuesday.

Sesa continues. I'm over 2000 words now, double the limit, but it just wont' END. I really like it, though, and hope my person does to. I think it's turning out well, I just want it finished. I have until Tuesday ay 2am, though. LOL

GREs and transcripts are on their ways to my 4 graduate schools, and I refuse to worry about any other part of applying until January.

I wanna Sim and not write. ::whimper::

current quotes

They say that love hides behind every corner... am I walking in circles?
--Anonymous

I do know my own mind. The trouble is, my mind changes and then I have to get aquainted with it all over again.
--Anne Shirley, "Anne of the Island"

Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one's life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept into one's side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart it pages betrayed the rhythym and the music; perhaps ... perhaps ... love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.
--Anne of Avonlea

current lyrics

Dripped down the hallway 'cause we started in the shower. Didn't finish 'till we hit the kitchen counter place.

It's nice to know that even after all these years, it's still special when your lover wins you as a sex slave in a deviant drunken bet.

Oh farfegnugen! Someone has drank all my juice.
--JC

There was a reason, he thought watching Justin's shoulders under his t-shirt, why he'd never tried to sleep with anyone from the group except JC and Joey and Chris.
--Lance
