It's all different now and it's all good. Looking forward to another LA trip early in the new year. I don't think Austin is going to happen this year. I'm trying to get out of the country for a bit instead.

understandable tho. if you can get an out of the country trip, it's worth it. but yer always welcome down here.

It's LA Part 2. With an NYC trip next month. It works for now.
volkov:
you go with your mad travelin self.

just remember. there are photobooths and ninja sticker stores that can't be beat down in Austin.

volkov:
I'm skinny, but not that flexible. would I be in checked luggage? airplane seats themselves are bad enough. they don't even deliver peanuts or sodas in tiny plastic cups to the luggage compartment!

wish I could. I've been wanting to travel and I miss Portland/Seattle since I haven't been there in five years....but I can't get out of work until mid September at the earliest.

you kids better have all kinds of outrageous adventures...in mustachios no less.

I finally got to the point where I don't get sad and miss participating here like I used to. I'm very into it. I'm in the middle of all sorts of big life events or something like that and I don't even check the site very frequently.

This summer's gonna fly right by and I'm hoping to do a...

Things calmed quite a bit. Now it's mostly sitting around or working nonstop. The working I'm not so into but the checks are nice. I'm trying to enjoy all of the current downtime because I know in about a week it'll all explode again. Then I've got a friend moving to LA and some other friends coming to visit from...

Is it one of the new digital ones, or one of the nice old-fashioned ones? I discriminate against the former.
volkov:
yeah. it fucking pissed me off to no end. It was like....he just wasted an amazing story up that point. everything that happened was for absolutely nothing. and it was such a cop-out. First he ends the story with Roland just getting in to the tower...and then teases you along to the rest of the ending. Just ending it with him attaining the tower would have been frustrating, but not nearly as angering as what he did after that. what a fuck head. he just wanted to finish the story as quickly as he could. there's no other explanation for him finishing the last three books all right on top of each other like that. I should go to Maine and cut him.

I'm still quite awkward. That may never change.
I had a fucking week. Like one of those crazy weeks. I'm not sure it ended. It might turn into a series of weeks. So much going on and all.

The Darjeeling Limited trailer is finally up and I'm excited. I get that a lot of people seem to have a problem with Wes...

Oh, well I had actually guessed the Snape thing when I finished book 6, so I was waiting the whole book for that. Also, I just read YSKOV in a class this last term. It was good. I love McSweeneys.
I was actually a Cake-Cutter. I need to change it, becuase since I've been back to work I've only been serving.
Wii parties? I've done it a bit with one friend. We played some Wii Sports. You play Super-Monkey Ball on the wii?
volkov:
hi!
yeh it sucks for my dad. the worst part is that they told him that they had gotten all the cancer out...or at least thought that they had...then three days later they come back and are "well......actually...."

actually this wisdom tooth removal was cake compared to when the military did it. on one, they couldn't get it numb, so they just had a huge orderly come in and lean on my chest while they broke it apart and pulled it out. blackeyed

I'm not necesserily a huge Whedon fan, but I am a huge Serenity fan. Never got into the Buffy/Angel series though. mainly probably because, until recently, I hadn't owned a tv since 1999. I've got Serenity and Firefly in my dvd collection now though. smile

I'm not sure when I'll make it back up to the PacNW. I would like to do it sometime soon, but I'm saving all my pennies right now for a trip to NYC/Romania in October. I know. I know.. If I don't make it up there, you'll cut me. smile

definitely let me know if you're ever in town. there's this cool shop over on S Congress that we can go and spend a shitton of money in. they have ninja stickers.

I couldn't hold off on the HP book and read it last week. I liked it, but it definitely had some parts and events that I was a ltttle miffed over. like with every other series, I feel like I should reread the whole thing from start to finish again.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly why I talk myself into going to events that I know are going to be uncomfortable. It worked out in the end but I'm not sure it was entirely worth it. I'm also not sure why I continue to refer to certain people as friends when they behave like children and take every opportunity to...

jobs... hassles. I finally have one that is near perfect. I hope the benefits change a bit if they did it would be perfect. I get to ride my bike to work, nobody bothers me at work, I am well respected, I get to work from home when I want...

it is easy..

I am paid well.

Let's hope you find something like this. smile
bridgetwnpeddler:
Yeah an always visible tattoo is a very strong statement. Strong statements will always set on portion or another of any given population on edge. As such they will always limit your options within that population.

What do I do? I work in IT now. Computer stuff... I design email and instant messaging systems for corporations along with all the regulatory compliance policies around records retention etc...

Really exciting stuff eh?

The bike rides I took this last week were a bridge just a bit too far. I had to scale it back a bit but I am hoping to take another ride tomorrow before I go out to my grandmothers to take care of her.

In keeping with my post once every 3-5 months schedule I am here again. I don't like the way they ruined my MY SG page and I use the site even less than before which means I hardly use it at all now.
I'm tired and I should still be in bed.

I want to find a new job because my current job...

I think we're in the same boat. I just did my once-every-two-months log on and decided to post. I remember when I used to post almost daily, and talked to so many people on the site. Aye, things do change, though. Things do change.
larianna:
Nope. But since we were in the first 100 people to be denied bracelets, we got to go to any movie of our choice for free. Not too bad!

It was sort of like life just picked me up and looked me in the eye and asked me what the hell I wanted. And as I tried to respond it cut me off and told me to stop fucking around and waiting for soemone else to make things happen and to do them myself. By myself if that's how it has to go...

So I have moved on. Mostly.


I just watched the season finale of Dexter and cried like a baby. I'm sort of still crying. I'm going to start reading the first book today even though it seems kind of silly to. I'm glad to be done with all of my shopping already but I feel like I shouldn't be sitting around...

Crap I'm sorry. Sounds like you need to get out and do something for yourself. It's the weather that getts me feeling like you do. Call up some friends and go get a drink at a bar you have never been to before. Flirt with the bartender and laugh at boys.
atomicant:
i think i grok how you are feeling.

It's strange that everytime it comes up I want to feel bad for some reason.
And I don't. I don't think I ever will and I want to just be okay with that.
I don't miss him at all. I never expected to.

What I miss most are the supposed friendships with the people I haven't talked to since I...

I am going to hide this week.
Except for tomorrow, when MZD will be at Powell's.
I am going to hide out the rest of the week and get over this awful sickness and prepare to move this weekend.
I am going to hide this weekend. While everyone moves everything, I will be posted in a hotel room with champagne and I will be...
