1.) I feel as if I've been through the ringer, and there is absolutely no reason why I should feel this way. I did nothing whatsoever on Monday and Tuesday, other than some minor picking up.

2.) Last night, I dreamed that I was going to fuck [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru, except then I woke up and it took me a minute to realize that I wasn't still dreaming so I was all like "wait wtf how did this happen". Then cold, hard reality set in and I realized that I was not going to fuck Fred, at least not imminently. On the other hand, it was certainly much better than the dream I had the other night where I killed the neighbors' daughter (who oddly looked like Lindsay Lohan, wtf brain) and was on tenterhooks waiting for them to find out and have me prosecuted. (I forget why I killed her. I think it was an accident. Since it was a dream, I'm not terribly worried about it now.)

3.) Hours are being cut at work. Oh joy of joys. FUCK YOU LOL-MART SALARIED MANAGEMENT. Oh and also the state road I need to get to work is closed between Buehler's (another grocery store just down the street) and Lol-Mart, so what used to be a 10-minute drive now takes a good 25-30 minutes. FUCK YOU INDOT.

4.) So the S******* family reunion (lolmom's people) is this weekend, and X-chan flew in today. It's nice to see her, despite the fact that I had to swill out the shower this morning, and we spent most of the afternoon talking about Star Wars. (X-chan and I will talk about the most bizarre and random shit if left to our own devices. This quickly segued into why the Vader Sues on AFFN aren't more creative, because seriously if I could use the Force and read my partner's feelings and fantasies and grope him/her from afar, y'all would be lining up for my sweet, sweet midichlorian loving. Don't pretend you wouldn't.) Then I went to work and then came home, whereupon X-chan informed me that she was watching Toddlers and Tiaras, which is seriously the greatest trainwreck on earth. I now know what to expect when I die and go to Hell. At least X-chan reassured me that I wasn't a terrible person for taking a virulent dislike to a bratty four-year-old contestant (and her idiot parents).

HELLO INTERNETS. I would ask if you've missed me horribly, but you probably didn't notice I was gone. (I wouldn't notice my absence either, frankly.)

I spent most of last week running around like a mad thing and preparing for my trip to Ohio to see [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru. The trip itself was, as ever, a pleasant distraction with all the requisites (pizza, good sex, long conversations, slow stretches of I-75); I also got to see the house (and [livejournal.com profile] driley1, albeit briefly).

So now I'm back. Lolmom made ham and greens and cornbread and we're pretending to be from the South; this was an interesting culinary experiment, since we had no idea what to do with mustard greens and the like, but not destined to become one of our favorites. I'm not a fan of cooked vegetables, though I will eat some of them, and the texture is a real turn-off.

The plants proceed apace; I am impatiently waiting for the tomatoes to turn red so I can eat them. There are blossoms on the peppers, eggplant, and squash, and the dill is starting to grow blossoms.

Work has been work. You know, I'm actually kind of over work. Nobody's getting any hours and so I agreed to swap with a co-worker (I'm taking his long shift and he's taking my shorter evening shift, which he's welcome to even though the shift I'm taking for him is a crap shift). I could use a few more hours until I pick up something else.

There, now you're all caught up, isn't that 4W5UM?
xifeng: (hoes doing crazy shit)
Jesus Christ. Did y'all miss me? (Ha! You probably didn't notice I was gone!) We've had no Internet for the past week, due to a tale of fuckery and woe, which is why all my posts have been goddamn Twitter.

Behind a cut because this is a long story )

1.) Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] daturabelle!

2.) For someone who was going to crash immediately upon arrival at home (after a 6-2 shift), I have done a pretty respectable job of staying up late. [livejournal.com profile] galhea and [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru are good for that kind of thing, though.

3.) I have decided to save Duel at Ichijoji Temple for when I'm a.) not RPing and b.) less tired and can appreciate Toshiro Mifune its rich tapestry of themes and leitmotifs and oh shit are those SAMURAI??? better.

4.) T minus about 36 hours or so (leaving for weekend trip). Wheeeee!

5.) Note to [livejournal.com profile] duokinneas: NO PART 3 UNTIL YOU COMMENT ON PART 2. Or I'll eat all the waffles myself and not let you have any. (j/k you know I can't refuse you waffles, or anything for that matter ♥)

1.) Dear body, the thing where blood comes out of my genitals every month REALLY SUCKS, not to mention IS NASTY. Can we please fast-forward 20+ years or so and finish it off? Thanks.
1a.) It's day 5, so hopefully it won't be much longer now.

2.) I was so tired after my Herculean Labors yesterday (doctor's appointment, library, yapped at [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru for a couple of hours, finished a story for [livejournal.com profile] duokinneas, helped put groceries away) that I pretty much collapsed at 6 p.m. Consequently, did not get to see Sanjuro yesterday. However, I will be home at a reasonable hour today.

3.) Dude. I do not want to go to work in an hour.
xifeng: (Default)
Ha ha! I spent the entire morning yesterday not working and still getting paid for it!

Well, actually, I foolishly volunteered to help out in the pharmacy, which requires a drug test, and today was the first day that a.) Karen in Personnel and I were both there and b.) there wasn't snow on the ground, so I was on the clock and I got paid to, basically, drive over, sit in the waiting room, drink water, and take the drug test (which, per the Lords of Low Prices, must be sent to a lab in Kansas to be properly cultured wtf). Also, I ran into Ainsley and Karie (of all people) in the waiting room, and I haven't seen then in a while, so there was some catching up. They seem to be doing okay.

Also, I have really fallen off the wagon in re: the matter of doing anything worthwhile, but hope to pick myself up and get back on. Seriously, I have scarcely read anything that wasn't somehow Oceania-related--not that I don't just love Oceania, because I do, but I need to read other things too. Please feel free to kick me.

Oh, and I am so totally going to try this. I love crème brûlée, and would make it at home once in a while if I had a torch, but there's never been any sense for me in spending the money to get a torch given that I'd probably use it once a year; much as I love it, crème brûlée is not in line with my preferred eating patterns. (Then again, neither is gobbling chocolate chips in front of the computer. LOL L33 IZ HYPOCRITE.) Now I don't have to have a torch. :D

Because I have also been negligent about updating my LJ and thus have not done this: a happy belated to [livejournal.com profile] queen_lily_rose and [livejournal.com profile] jadecat, who were a year older as of 9 January and 11 January respectively. Srry gaiz. :<

Also, today I am on time )

MICE update: Initially, we heard a snap and checked the traps, which contained no mice. Subsequently, the lolmom checked and found a single front paw (either the mouse left something behind or gnawed off his foot). She feels tremendously guilty. I do not. Either way, we're reasonably sure the mice are probably not going to stick around--animals aren't stupid.

Speaking of animals not being stupid, Callice knows damn well that there is no cat shit on the living room floor. Or rather, she knows damn well that there should be no cat shit on the living room floor.

GARDEN update: We have lavender. If I learn to make soap or whatever, I know what some of you are going to get for every occasion for the rest of your lives. Mom and I got the regular-sized tomatoes and the eggplant potted a couple of days ago, and we've got the beans, zucchini, and cucumbers started. I went out and potted the peppers yesterday. The herbs and flowers and the spinach still need a new home, but we'll figure that out somehow. (Or I will, since Mom's away for the weekend.)

Went out to dinner with Mom and Connie. Got my hair figured out, finally. I think I can cross "do something about the hair" off my New Year's resolution list. Turns out the bangs just needed some evening-up. Hurrah!

Randomly, I really liked my outfit yesterday.

[livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru, I'm weeding out all the communities I'm not into anymore, and as it happens [livejournal.com profile] male_colors never really took off. Would you be heartbroken if I bahleeted it, or do you want it up for old times' sake?

[livejournal.com profile] briarlaboheme, I've defriended your former LJ abode, just because my tiny brain gets confused too easily. Just FYI.

Also, a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] uigenna. Dude, this is the problem with having a flist of any size; I keep forgetting. I'm not sure if people take it personally or not--depends on the person, I suspect--but I'm bothered by it.

I really should get off my ass and go out pounding the pavement. But you know, I did that yesterday and I'd like some time off for today, especially since I'm off tomorrow and I'm probably going to be too busy during the rest of the week. I would like to figure out some way to stave off the guilt later on, though.

It's been more or less grey and gloomy; on the plus side, the irises are starting to bloom, so the backyard is a vast expanse of green with dots of red and purple here and there (the tulips are up as well, and I think so are the hyacinths, but they may be starting to wilt).

We've been cooking more, which is one of the better consequences of recent events, and about the only thing that doesn't ttly suck ass. The lolmom's making rye bread; we're having zucchini quiche for dinner tonight, and last night we had SHELLS STUFFED WITH SPINACH AND CHEESE FUCK YES. This is fair enough since we're probably living on leftovers for the rest of this week.

H wrote and showered me with some of his insecurities, which I guess is fair enough. I'm constantly being told that not many people are like me.

([livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru): Sorry about the other night. I'd forgotten that AIM was set up to turn on automatically when one logs on the Int0rbuttz, so didn't tell Mom, which is what happened there.)

Also, congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] dethorats! You're a REAL adult now! XD

I am kind of in a chatty mood lately, or at least a little more prosocial than I usually am, so maybe there will be some LJ posts that aren't goddamn Twitter entries. Also, I may be more with the social networking and interaction and whatnot. (This inevitably leads into my apologizing to everybody I've got friended on my neglected Goodreads account, because TTL BOOKSPAM BBY.) We'll see. I've had a powerful RP itch lately.

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru!

Also: a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] queen_lily_rose and [livejournal.com profile] jadecat both. Afkdjalk;sdfjlkajdsflkjda I keep forgetting people's birthdays. This is sucktastic of me.

It is also sucktastic of me to not be around very much. Here is a list of profoundly unimportant things that have happened while I was off flitting about.
Stuff and nonsense )
xifeng: (empire pasteded on yay!!!)
+ Books are good food.
+ Tonight, somebody's (school-age) kid tore across the front end of the Lol-Mart in which I work, shrieking, "I HAVE DIARRHEA! I HAVE DIARRHEA!" in tones that betokened wonder and delight. I couldn't help but laugh because a.) I am twelve years old and would laugh at the word "diarrhea" if it appeared in a serious and reputable medical textbook and b.) my childhood was pretty fucked-up and bodily functions were considered an appropriate topic of dinner-table conversation. X-chan and I were probably the only kids in America routinely threatened with scurvy and rickets to get us to eat our vegetables. Anyway, I think I'm going to try to get "I have diarrhea!" to catch on, since for the most part "istennoing one's feet" and "Tom Cruise knows the history of psychiatry!" hasn't. Use "I have diarrhea!" to express inappropriate enthusiasm today!

(For the uninitiated, which would be more or less everyone who isn't [livejournal.com profile] driley1 and [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru, X-chan and I have this rule that if we're arguing, and someone says, "Tom Cruise knows the history of psychiatry!", that person automatically wins, because there is no rational reply that can be made to that statement. Unfortunately, since this rule of civilized rhetoric was adopted, X-chan has become a lot quicker on the Tom Cruise draw than I am, which means she wins a lot of arguments by default. Fortunately, we never argue about anything really serious.)
+ I lose at writing pr0n.
+ For some reason I got spam encouraging me to confine the man or men in my life to some sort of male chastity cage (go on, say it, get all the comments out of your systems), which caused me to cross my legs just thinking about it and is certainly not something I'd do to anybody I cared about. Apparently there's a market for that sort of thing. Apparently there's money to be made. If I could somehow combine sex toys and chastity devices with MLMs, I'd be sitting on a goldmine of passive income.
+ GoodReads totally has my number, because the other day I managed to pull up a stack of Stephen Turnbull books I haven't read AND an ad with a cute girl in her underwear. Let's just say that was a red-letter day.
+ A couple-three days ago, I got to yap at [livejournal.com profile] aeromancy on AIM for the first time ever. It was v. cool at least from my own end. WAS IT GOOD FOR YOU TOO???

1.) I think LJ is on the fritz again, because it says my last update was 7 days ago. Actually, it was 11. Or thereabouts.

2.) My appearances will likely be sporadic for some time to come because I have a lot of things to do in preparation for the upcoming move, which God willing will be at the beginning of March or so. However, there will be posts in which I attempt to fob off crap that I don't want or can't take with me onto other people.

3.) H is back from Kobe. HURRAH. He has still not succeeded in his attempt to quit smoking, but the year is young and he has managed to cut back, so also HURRAH. All the same, I expect I'll have to pick up an ashtray when he's here in the fall.
3a.) I wish I were still smoking, because it was a lot easier to keep my weight under control back then. Of course, it could have had to do with the fact that I was in college and walking all over campus (even when I had a car and an apartment), and it could also have had to do with the fact that I pretty much lived on coffee. On the other hand, at least my weight is remaining stable, but that doesn't mean I want to be this number for the rest of my life.

4.) Most of my entertainment for the past couple of weeks has revolved around movies; we went to see Atonement on Saturday (I liked it, and it played with perception in some interesting ways, but it was rather a downer). Also, [livejournal.com profile] jurhael, if you haven't seen Notes on a Scandal yet, you should really try to get ahold of it; one of the themes has to do with a kind of narcissism.

5.) Also I finished The Warlord by Malcolm Bosse (a relic of my father's). I was pleasantly surprised, as I had expected it to be stupendous crap, but it was actually quite good.

6.) Went up to Bloomington last week to look at an apartment. I've come to the conclusion that I'm going to have to get a 1-bedroom, because it's easier for me to think in terms of what I can afford/what I'm likely to get rather than in terms of what I want. (I suppose someday I will be able to afford a 2-bedroom. Alas.) In terms of location and what the landlord pays, it's perfectly okay; in terms of space, I could make it work, but it would be a stretch, and I'd have to leave my upstairs table at home. I might apply for it anyway, after I've looked at some other places, though I need to clarify their pet policy first (leasing agent said the cat would be okay; application says no pets).

(I already looked at apartments where I used to live. There's a lovely 2-bedroom available, but I have severe misgivings about throwing money down on it when I don't know that I can afford it. Unlike the last time I did this, I have a car and credit cards now.)

Was indescribably sad to leave.
6a.) Maybe because I've already told H about all this, and because to me it's old news, I just feel kind of brusque and short about rehashing it here. But I figure at least 2.5 of you might like to know how it's all turning out.

7.) Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru! Also a happy belated birthday to [livejournal.com profile] queen_lily_rose.
xifeng: (Default)
Everything that could go wrong last week did (the short summary: I broke the showerhead on Monday; I tried to make candy and wound up burning the almond bark and had to get more; I ran all over God's green acre and have no money and then on top of that I did not get my paycheck on Friday and so I couldn't get my car out of the shop because without that money I can't pay for the deductible). But it's the weekend now, and X-chan has just arrived from Parts Unknown and is currently sleeping off her jet lag, and none of the other shit matters anymore.

H sent me flowers, which arrived today quite unexpectedly (I had already gone to the post office to pick up the other things he sent me, which I had to sign for, and am now richer by 2000 yen).

Nobody, in all my life, has ever, ever sent me flowers before.

I love flowers.

It is harder than you might think to find the words to tell someone that he is, easily, the most wonderful person you have ever met in your entire life, especially when your standard expressions of love/affection tend to sound like, "Yo, [livejournal.com profile] dethorats! I'm going to skewer you alive and then put fire ants up your nose!" or "Goddammit, [livejournal.com profile] imperfectkatoru, I'm going to kick your ass." I've spent almost four hours trying to figure it out, which isn't working, and I think the thing to do may be to come out and say it.

In conclusion, YAY.
