Halloween!

9

Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year and each one up to this point has been a let down! Not this year! I do work Halloween night but I intend to go out in OKC or Tulsa the Friday after Halloween to show off my awesome mask.

I order it on Wednesday and it should get here in about 2 weeks, which is cutting...

Lol, I'm home from work sick and guess what I'm doing?

Sitting on the couch in my underwear watching Angel.

I'm watching the episode where Angel, Cordelia, Wesley, Fred, and Gunn have all lost their memory and think they're in high school again (well, not Angel). It's hilaaaarious.. biggrin

I'm back!

I am living by myself again in a cute little two-bedroom house. smile

Things are going well. I work a lot (seven days a week, 64 hours) but it's good money.

I've decided to plan a trip to Europe next year. I'm going to be there for a month, give or take a day or two. I'm planning a...

I've been to Europe 3 times, but never for a month at a time. Longest was a 16 day trip 4 years ago and traveled by train in 5 countries and we were spent!. But on my first trip in the early 70's met a gal from Connecticut in Amsterdam who had been traveling on her own for 6 weeks. Couldn't understand how she could managed, but she did. But we did travel together for 4 days and enjoyed the company while it lasted. One can do so much on their own. Good luck on your trip - you'll have fun.

Glad you're back. smile

In 1970, unfortunately lots of Germany still showed signs of the war. Devasted building were forever visible especially in the sprawling cities. I saw the worst in Munich, even though they were preparing for the 1972 Olympics.
My highlights on my first trip was Amsterdam, duly noted was Anne Frank's house. Not what it is now, but back in March 1970, most of the house was still in the same order it was right after the war, but with some modifications. I don't know if the "crying room" is still at the end of the self tour at the back of the house, because that's where one can reflect on the photos, stories, memos, relics left behind at that house as well as other Jewish familes. I completely broke down and couldn't control myself for about 15 minutes. (The same thing happened to me while at the Holocaust museum in Washington, DC 8 years ago)
The Grand Place in Brussels is a must especially at night time - you can find an open air restaurant, or bar to simply enjoy the ambience and people watch. A train ride up or down the Rhiene is pretty cool to see the castles on the river banks. Paris has too many places to witness, but The Louve, Tower, Notre Dame, and a dinner on the Left bank adjacent to Notre Dame is something you will always remember. Every place in Italy is breathtaking - In Florence, David has to been seen and stared at. St. Mark's square is unbelievable. The sameis true at the Vatican - Sistine Chapel (but get your tickets from a tour group or you'll never get in), St. Peter's Basilica (We were there on a Sunday and just happened to get in to attend mass by luck. I am a Catholic, but I NEVER felt so out of place because of more devoted Catholics from all around the world who were in tears praying or following the Mass. We were jam packed standing surrounded by people praying in so many tongues.) Also in Rome, Colosseum, the forum, Trevi fountain, Pantheon; in Venice if you don't have a very close friend, find one.. you'll fall in love for sure. I could never make into Berlin because of the Cold War, but surprisingly I have a small piece of the wall that a friend sent me after it came down in 1990.

But regardless of which countries and cities you visit, you will be in awe!

I am so incredibly stressed out. -_-

I hate coming home because my roommate/best friend won't clean after herself or her fucking cats.

I keep having manic swings in my mood that impair my judgment and make it inevitable for me to make impulsive, reckless decisions, especially concerning money. On the other side of the spectrum, I continue to feel consistently and impossibly...

Welp, I finally made it back into the public library on my lunch break today.

I paid my old fines, got an updated library card, and checked out 9 books. Yipes!

I checked out the following, in additional to several psychology-related books:

-Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
-The Complete Shorter Fiction of Virginia Woolf
-In My Own Words (Evita)
-Bad Times in Buenos Aires (anthro...

I really don't go for autographs - once in a blue moon I'll get one but they don't really do anything for me.

I have a chunk of older stuff from the 90s (indies and early translated manga) but that's really about it.

its a pretty dry read, unlike vibrations and girls.

Hi all, still here.

I feel like I've been really busy lately but can't think of anything productive I've done in the past week, haha. Here in Oklahoma the weather has been really dumb; super nice, sunny days followed by 40 degrees and rain. Dumb! I'm just ready for summer, that's what I keep telling everyone.

Can't wait to...

the dust the dirt and the notes are all that matter are all that's real

Some books I just need to have in hard copy, while others I can deal with e-readers. Depends on if I really like the author. There's a tactile (and psychological) comfort in having a "real" book.

I'm so bored.. Wallering around in my room naked.. by myself. -_-

I'm lonely, there's nobody left in this town worth talking to; at least, that's how it feels.

Thank you, sir! I like getting itchy in nature. smile I'm not sure how many hiking trails there are around here but you've convinced me to do a little research. It's finally starting to warm up outside; I even broke a sweat while running errands today.

klausbuben:

I always think you look good, but congrats on your success! smile
