that would definitely have to be harinezumi. I shudder to think that I'm old enough to say I've been friends with someone for almost 20 years.

Of my random "people I've never met/met because of LJ" list... _kyri was definitely random friending #1, followed by kshandra, masteradept, austingoddess, and kittikattie. These people have been following my drama since the gods only knows when and I'm glad for it every single day.

So last night's highlight was dealing with eight malfunctioning smoke/carbon monoxide alarms throughout the house for an hour. My ears still feel like I survived a metal concert.

Stressing - managed to change that appointment with Grand High Poobah of Lower Intestine, but I still need to get to Worcester by 9am on Tuesday. I really am not sure how that's going to work. I might have to head out there Monday night and stay over, then take the bus back on Tuesday. *sigh* it just had to be Monday night, didn't it. Oh well. It will be figured out. Stressing about this is NOT helped when your insurance's referral department calls and tells you that your doctor's practice doesn't exist. (They had the wrong phone number.)

It always has to be when I have to do sixteen million other things that a craft project/idea bubbles to the surface in my head. Good god, wait until March, muse.

Just found out someone I know is in the ER. *worries and sends wellness thoughts eastward*

That's pretty much all...

Remember a whiles back I posted a picture of me gleefully chasing a small boy?

Small stuff

Jun. 3rd, 2008 09:49 am
kjpepper: (evil)
Remember yesterday and that whole words to live by sort of thing? I was thinking about that this morning. One of my things personally that I try, or tried to ascribe to is "Don't sweat the small stuff." I guess I figured that if I jumped all over every little slight, every tiny thing that wounded me, I'd never get anything done. So what I'd usually do is I'd try not to let little things get to me, and if something did upset me, I'd let myself be upset for about ten minutes or so and then resolve to get over it.

Except... that sort of thing hasn't served me well. Little things tend to add up until they become a Big Thing. Also, I tended to underestimate things. It's hard to not sweat the small stuff when you have no concept of what is small stuff. Especially when on some days, everything is small stuff. One of the things I used to shake myself out of things was the fact that I have no belief whatsoever in the butterfly effect, that in the grand, cosmic scheme of things, any decision I make and any effect I have will change nothing other than my immediate environment. So what if I'm hurt by x person's action? The sun's still gonna come up tomorrow regardless, and life will go on, as it has a tendency to do.

I found myself doing that this morning in an attempt to psych myself up for a potentially stressful day, tried to say you know what, it's okay, it's a beautiful day and will stay a beautiful day, no matter what happens because in the grand scheme of things nothing that will happen today will matter. And then I got to work, sat down, opened my email to find that someone I liked and respected dropped me from their friends list.

...yeah, that shouldn't be devastating, right? Cause in the grand scheme of things, who cares? People are starving and or killing each other halfway across the world and I'm upset because someone doesn't like me anymore and considering who it is, probably with excellent reason? Shiiiiit.

But yeah... I don't know, I've lost any sense of judgment on what is and what isn't small stuff anymore, both in what I'm sweating and in what I'm not sweating. I feel like I'm either ignoring the little stuff that has the potential to become big stuff, ignoring the big stuff in favor of the wrong little stuff, losing my ability to discriminate and letting every fucking thing hurt me or maybe some combination of all of the above. All I know is that I walked in with kind of a cosmic perspective on the significance of my own life and had my perspective shrink in a matter of a second.

And outside, in the grandest of cosmic fuck yous, it's still a beautiful day.

Between [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat's and [livejournal.com profile] sixswordsamurai's offers to rescue my weekend, I will indeed be heading to the Stronghold of Harmony on Friday. Take that, money gods. TAKE IT. NYEH NYEH.

Seriously... domo arigatou, guys.

*squee*

kjpepper: (OMG YAY)
I totally got a big fat kiss goodbye from [livejournal.com profile] athene just now. Seeing as that totally just made my morning, it was definitely worth cancelling my gyn appointment for. :) *gigglesquee* Okay, I had other reasons to cancel the gyn app (not least of which just a plain stubborn not wanting to go), but now I'm really glad I did.

Good luck in Texas [livejournal.com profile] athene and [livejournal.com profile] lordaerith! You'll be missed.


In other news, holy crap, remind me never to do two sessions of belly dance in one night ever again. My thighs HURT. And I'm never going to be coordinated enough to dance with zils. Oy. That and I'm going to have to figure out some way of compensating for the fact that my butt sticks out quite a bit in the back so I stop catching veils on it. (The trials and tribulations of being a rather full-to-overflowing-figured dancer... ) I picked up a CD of Leyla Jouvana and Roland drum music to listen/practice to until the next class sessions start up at the end of September. After class I was chatting with Joanne a bit about radio bastet and other stuff, and she was telling me about how she was going on vacation with her son and her grandkids... grandkids. Jesus. Lord, tell me I'll look that good dancing when I'm old enough to have grandkids. :)

After I came home I was kinda low again, despite some very nice quality time hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] sundart and [livejournal.com profile] morlock (it's still somewhat of a rare thing to get hangouts with just the two of them) so [livejournal.com profile] morlock suggested i shower up and I go to the Moan and Dove with him and [livejournal.com profile] lysscat, which turned out to be fun and got me fuzzy enough to quite freaking the hell out for the first time all week. After which [livejournal.com profile] morlock took me to the diner for some post-beering food. Note to self - next time food before beer. My stomach was not happy with me about doing things in the wrong order. Still, the evening was good, and I do enjoy sitting around and shooting deep serious important life shit with [livejournal.com profile] morlock every so often, especially since if I talk about what's snarled up in my head sometimes it comes unsnarled. I think part of been what's stressing me out lately is that I'm definitely in this transitional phase - getting married (for all intents and porpoises) in November, and the Amoeba is starting up talks towards what sort of collective household we want to find/purchase/live happily ever after in. There a definite feeling of impending chapter closing, and it's been stressing me out a bit around the edges. But at least I now know part of the problem.

(and knowing's half the battle, right? sorry couldn't resist.)

[livejournal.com profile] athene kissed me!

Edit: before anyone else asks, no. :) But it was fun anyway. So there.
kjpepper: (yarr!)
So far, it's been a good weekend. Friday night [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat cooked for the family (sans [livejournal.com profile] morlock, who was off at a party) while we watched Smackdown! Chicken and potatoes. Very teh yum. And in perfect moment of timing, [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah and [livejournal.com profile] extrajoker whisked [livejournal.com profile] anzovin, [livejournal.com profile] sundart and I off to The Diner for a dessert of confections, conversation and utterly hideous puns. ([livejournal.com profile] extrajoker's completely accidental statement that an alternate and possibly more realistic scripting for United 93 "wouldn't fly" with audiences still makes me giggle.) [livejournal.com profile] anzovin also thought it was rather strange that I eat the filling out of my pie first, then the crust... It can't be that strange. I just like saving the best for last when I eat.

Yesterday was basically sail and sleep. [livejournal.com profile] sundart and I led our first pillage in years around the diamond arch with [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and some jobbers, and then the three of us moved into a bigger house on Turtle. Houses. God. I'm still a mite boggled by the changes in Pirateverse since I left it the first time. Anyways that was fun, and after heading to bed early I was woken up by a surprise visit from [livejournal.com profile] morlock, which was good since I missed him anyways. To the point where I didn't really mind sitting on him and tickling him this morning until he was at least awake enough to realize he needed to pee, and then get up and go to work. Silly thing.

The rest of today was really too bloody hot to do much other than pillage and lay around melting of hot air thick enough to butter bread with. I HATE summer. But I spent some quality time hanging out with sunny and [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat. We made the mistake of watching the Great American... Meals? Foods? On a Bun on the History Channel, which was a bad move cause it just made us hungry. Syd and I solved that with a trip to Fatzo's where I tried their foot long hot dogs. They aren't bad. They're a little pale and would probably be perfect if grilled up some more, but their stuffings are quite tasty. We followed up dinner by lazing about in the cool courtesy of sydmor's A/C and watched Pirates of the Caribbean in preparation for Friday's opening. Reminds me, I need to make a pvrewind post about that, since cinemark's also showing T2 that night. "Come wi' me if ye want to live. Yarrrrr." *imagines Ah-nuld in pirate clothes and giggles* I suppose it isn't far off from Conan the Barbarian, but still.

I might actually go into the office for a bit tomorrow, even though I don't have to. Money is good, y'know? I'm thinking I'll exploit the fact that when I'm there I can think of 20 million things I'd rather be getting done at home, so if I stay at the office for the morning, maybe I'll come home and get said 20 million things done. :) We'll see.

Whew!

Jun. 17th, 2006 03:18 am
kjpepper: (brat)
Uy! That is not an exclamation it's a name. It's been bothering me the entire trip back.

By the grace of several serendipitous events, I am home, safe and sound and SANE! tonight. Today was by turns crazy, rushed, more crazy, downright surreal, happy, some more surreal and well yeah, all the sort of things that can be associated with a reunion, which was charmingly devoid of anything remotely Grosse Pointe Blankian (though the appropriate scene did cross my mind as I wandered the fourth floor of the building to "cruise by my old locker" as it were - luckily no French assassins interested in ballroom dancing, native American art and pornography leaped from the hallway to pummel me with kickboxing, thereby necessitating murder by pen.)

Anyway, reunion was. Yes. That is a good sentence. blah blah blah, "leave your livestock alone" )

I'm glad I decided to go today, and I'm doubly glad that I decided to take the camera with me. Getting the pics online will be my big project for the weekend - that and stuffing myself at Taste of Amherst. :) Right now I should really crash, but I'm not sleepy yet, so maybe I'll watch some Taxi until I am. But before that, a quote from the always wonderfully random [livejournal.com profile] jaicat, via voice mail:

"Give me a call, and we'll chew the beef... or the fat... or whatever it is people are chewing. What are the kids chewing these days? Isn't that a good question..."
kjpepper: (shame shit different day)
something neat from [livejournal.com profile] harinezumi: I'm apparently an Attentive Idealist. what's your personal dna?

(note - don't bother with the little colored thingies at the bottom of your results - I'd forgotten that LJ disables scripty things.)

Had a reasonably good evening yesterday... had a little stolen time with the boy since he offered to pick me up from work while he was doing errands, and we ran into a very... er, bouncy [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah while we were at it. There was a new ep of Avatar the Last Airbender on... that show manages to continually impress me. I love how it manages to balance the dead serious with the goofy. Think about it, these kids are on a quest of penultimate importance, it's on them to stop the war that's been raging for the last hundred years, but at the same time the show still manages to remember that they are. just. kids. It's pretty awesome. Someone buy the DVDs to me. ;)

And there was a little bit of Smackdown! and the pre-[livejournal.com profile] pvrewind diner meetup which was great (note to self - doing an dead-on impression of Barney the Dinosaur singing "Baby Got Back" is a good way of terrifying everyone quickly) and then... The Breakfast Club. It had been years since I'd seen it last, so this viewing was welcome. There really is something unique about a sold-out theater full of fans whistling the Colonel Bogey March along with the characters... as well as singing "Don't You Forget About Me" during the opening. And I remembered why exactly I wanted me a Bender the first few times I watched the movie. *snrrt* He was definitely the sort I'd have a crush on in high school... heh. I still haven't really lost my attraction for that sort of hurt/rage churning beneath the surface. In guys anyway. *sigh* Pretty much every one i've ever had a crush on had that going.

Other than that... I'm working again this morning. *shakes head* I know, I said last weekend I wouldn't but this time I did get R to buy me lunch yesterday. And honestly I don't really mind. It's short, I don't have to do very much, no one else is here, it's blissfully quiet and it's extra money. So. *shrug* I suppose I'd be more peeved if it were actually putting me out in some way to be here, but it's not. I never really have anything better to do on Saturday morning so I might as well... you know? I don't have much planned today either... I was invited to a birthday dinner at Osaka tonight, but I've already spent too much money this weekend. I might just curl up somewheres and finish reading Grass, which is both fascinating and hard to get through at the same time. And think about stuff. Cause that's what I do.
kjpepper: (you suck)
Okay, today was a good day. Despite the restless noisy night. :)

Lots of hangout nap and curl up time with sunny was had, even if the day started with one of those wonderfully angsty conversations... *sigh* I even got out into the sunshine a bit to get my month's supply of anti-baby stickers. There was a surprise impromptu visit from the [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah, which was much with the happy, and even though poor [livejournal.com profile] cell23 was horking his guts out periodically, due to tummy bug, it was good to see him, his lady and BabyZilla down for wrasslin and stuff. Along with the Deerfield contingent.

Wrestlemania started off kinda lame, but then picked up into kickass after the first few matches. Well worth the purchasing, if just to see Vince McMahon get his muscular 60 year old ass handed to him by HBK, Rey Mysterio win the World Heavyweight Championship by making Randy Orton dance like a monkey, Batista make an appearance (PLEASE can I have some of that? In pinstripes?), making fun of Triple H's Lord of the Dorks appearance, and cheering John Cena's 1930s era gangster schtick... It was good, and between the good friends, good drinks, good fun and calzones, it was a pretty fabulous evening.

Hmm. Now I should go see if the big Kitty, who's been hiding from the loud wrestling fans all evening, is up for a gentle pouncing. :) Or maybe just some cuddling?
kjpepper: (there it is)
Wow this weekend was busy! I don't really have the time to devote a long entry about it, so time to dust off Mr Bulleted list:
  • Diner was fabulous, though we were missing 2 of the Amoeba boyos. Still there was [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah the Cute and Dimply!, and that's always fun. plus jukeboxing with [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat. Johnny Cash baybeee.

  • Work on Saturday blew big smelly hairy goat balls. Amazing how two hours can ruin an entire day. Not getting into why in a public post, but I'm fairly sure today is going to be unpleasant because of it. Oh well.

  • Saturday was immediately rescued by [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune, who took me to faces and helped me horrify a busload of tender green Smithies by loudly discussing bad porn.

  • Alas, the rest of Saturday was mostly ruled by teh God of Drama. None of it my own, really, but still fairly exhausting by the end. There was Con Air to be watched though. Jerry Bruckheimer is so amazingly bad sometimes. This movie is no exception, but it's still fun, between Nick Cage's HORRENDOUS accent, the laughable dialogue, and Steve Buscemi, Ving Rhames, and John Malkovich having way, WAY too much fun playing bugshit crazy psycho killers, qu'est que c'est?

  • Went to bed. Was joined by [livejournal.com profile] morlock. *happy sigh* The day wasn't all bad.

  • Slept in on Sunday, and woke up to sunbeams, [livejournal.com profile] sundart pottering in the kitchen, and the fact that [livejournal.com profile] morlock had stolen the covers yet again.

  • Am very satisfied with my contributions to [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat's nefarious project. Will post a few of them when the project declassifies. ;) Spent most of the day doing that in various stages, cuddling with sunny, hanging with Blue (yay someone else who can sing along to Bat Out of Hell II in its entireity!), and battling the hungries and crankies at varying stages of the day. Bah.

  • did manage to do the important bits of my laundry. I may be facing a bad day at work today, but by golly, I will be wearing underwear and pants while I do it.


Speaking of which, I need to do get dressed and stuff. Might as well get this show on the road.

[EDIT]: Everything's ok work-wise. Yay.
kjpepper: (WoL&O)
You know, I could swear there was a time in my past where I could eat onions and not still taste them 12 hours later. Goddamn it.

Today, as opposed to yesterday's taurine enhanced craziness, was a day of utterly self-indulgent recumbance. Seriously, I spent a good portion of today lying around in bed curled up with [livejournal.com profile] sundart. Which was fine, as I can't remember the last time we spent an entire day hanging out, reading, chatting, cuddling, and being asses at each other. *shakes head* I love how we've been together so long that we can appreciate each other's cracked humor and join in on the next line of whatever song or movie quote we're on at the time.

On a more serious note, the rest was needed. I still hadn't really recovered from this week, and sundart's been assigned the duty of Keeper of the Sanity for [livejournal.com profile] anzovin, who is due to lose his dad within the next week or so. Cancer's a bitch ass nigga. No seriously, it is. I have to wonder if all of that going on sparked the dream last night of visiting Mom in the hospital... probably. *sigh*

We didn't quite spend the whole day in bed. We ventured outside with Mrs. [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat (aka General McWifeypants) to try the new Japanese restaurant across the street, which does not only have sushi despite what the name would imply... and I'm severely in trouble, as I have found a place in the Valley besides Osaka that makes sukiyaki. O. M. G. I didn't order any today as it is a rather expensive indulgence (I got the Arigatou Roll instead - very tasty!), but you can bet the next time I have a little extra money and am in need of a treat I will be getting some. Sukiyaki is only like my favorite thing ever (and I completely blame too many watchings of Rurouni Kenshin for putting it in my head to even try the stuff). Even better is that this place has the option of making it with chicken. o_O Excuse me while I have a strange, heavenly interlude...

Anyway.

Our outdoor adventures also included getting envelopes for our cards, so last call if y'alls want one, drop me an email with your address - kjpepper at gmail. Hopefully we'll get at least some of those mailed tomorrow. We also got a Sky bar... If you can find these strange little chocolate bars (they're made by Necco in limited editions every year considering they have to fire up this ancient monster of a candy making machine to make them) I highly recommend them, especially if you have friends who like different things in their chocolate.

This weekend has also been full of the interesting wedding/kids/what the hell are we doing with the rest of our lives? conversations. Not too much to report yet, except girlie and I have picked out rings, and it seems that, unsurprisingly, sundart has been elected the Great White Hope (*snort*) of the Amoeba in terms of spawning.

My connection's going up and down like a yo yo so I think I'd best take that as a sign, post this, and go (back) to bed. Just me and the cats for the forseeable future at night, but I'm okay with that... though if I want any peace at dawn, I should go feed the monsters now.
kjpepper: (oooh pancake!)
Yesterday was spent doing... stuff! Too often I am defeated by my own inertia and by sunday night I groan about the waste of the weekend. But yesterday was wonderful, packed with productivity, good friends and fun. So no regrets about yesterday at all, which is rare for me.

Yesterday morning [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and I attacked sydmor's kitchen with a vengeance and made a fair amount of progress in there whist both caterwauling to KMFDM and other gothy stuff (guess what, people, dead stars still burn!) then we hauled all the boxes we broke down and the trash downstairs. So that was grand and it earned both of us lots of loving from the boy and Wings for dinner. Yay Wings. I may miss Teapot and Taipei and Tokyo, but moving to Amherst definitely ups the opportunity to order Wings and Brunos.

Directly after the spate of cleaning, [livejournal.com profile] inle_rah showed up and after a bit of conferring over the computer set out to see The Brothers Grimm which was charmingly, weirdly, ridiculous and silly. Good god, something is very wrong with Terry Gilliam. Need to watch Brazil again, I think. But anyway, we had a good time, and then inle_rah drove home to take a nap, and I headed back upstairs.

The October Rewind, I found out, is on my birthday. How cool is that shit? Course - it'd be nice if we knew what it was. If it's Scream, I'm skipping it, though I'll probably still hold court at the diner beforehand. :)

Hung out with [livejournal.com profile] sundart and [livejournal.com profile] anzovin for a bit, then went upstairs to hang out and wait for [livejournal.com profile] morlock to come home from work... though when he got out, he called [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat's phone and with some cheerfully phrased cryptic questions alerted us to the fact that he was plotting something nefarious, and still didn't tell us when he at last got home. Instead we all put on our shoes and went over to Quadtower Annex (ie, anzovin's) to interrupt [livejournal.com profile] anzovin's and [livejournal.com profile] sundart's shenanigans and bully them back into clothes, whereupon [livejournal.com profile] morlock revealed that he had gotten his hands on the first few episodes of Firefly and we were all hereby ordered to head back to sydmor's to watch it, lured with bribes of dinner, brownies and hangings out with the Amoeba. Much with the joymaking - though the boyos had seen it already, we all did thoroughly enjoy watching it together.

I had been expecting Firefly to be no less than excellent, being already a fan of anything associated with "Grr. Arrgh," and having seen bits of it already. So I had a fabulous time with it, especially watching it with the Amoeba, as there was much with the commentary, bickering, brownies, comparisons drawn between it and Cowboy Bebop, drooling over Mal and Kaylee and occasionally Inara (but you're supposed to drool at Inara and that's not nearly as much fun) and yelling at pretty much all of the characters whenever they did something particularly brainless or asinine.

So it seems I might indeed get to watch Firefly before Serenity comes out. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] morlock. (Though that doesn't mean I might not stop in for a couple of eps during athaerith's proposed marathon the weekend before. ;) )

so yeah - busy wonderful day. And today I didn't exactly sleep in, but I did stay abed reading until 11:30, so it's high time I got up and dispensed with the rest of today in a slightly more useful fashion... though from [livejournal.com profile] sundart's tone of voice, I have a feeling that the dispension will start with heading back to bed. S'cuse me. :D
kjpepper: (fear my moustache)
As official crazy drooling fangirl of Anzovin Studios (yes, that is the same [livejournal.com profile] anzovin... not like there aren't only five of them on earth and all in the same family) I need to make the in-progress gratuitous icon post and bug y'all to go watch the movie it came from.

I still find it bogglingly cool that someone I call a friend does this for a living. I also find it amusing that I can be all like "hey, may I use your copyrighted characters for icons?" and he can be all like "Sure."

ok, time to stop being antisocial and go play games at [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat's.

EDIT: Duel is also currently on the front page of atomfilms.com.
kjpepper: (growl bitch moan)
I'm actually not particularly grumpy this morning, but I felt the sentiment of the icon needed to be matched somehow. Really, I'm enjoying the fact that as I'm browsing around for something completely else on my various hard drives I find old icons that I got rid of and now miss so I reupload. Pity I can't remember their old keywords, but hey, can't have everything. But I missed this one, so mreh. Now, if I could find my Hex icons I'd be set... *sigh* at some point I really must finish that mood icon set I was working on a year or so ago with Hex's masks. They're cute, but I'm really done with the bouncing itties.

...KITTIES. goddamn I need this kkeyboard replaced.

So... end of my proposed time off. Learned a bit about what's been triggering me lately, and while I can solve some of it, a good chunk of it I can do nothing about beyond sucking it up, which sucks... yeah. that's right. *sigh* it's 8 am, the coffee hasn't hit the bloodstream yet, so my full vocabulary isn't accessible yet. bite me. Also learned, to my both pleasant and aggravated surprise that I may declare hibernation and go into hiding, this really can't apply to the people in my immediate inner circle. One I share a bed with, one is attached to the aforementioned with a bolt the size of my arm, one I can't shut out without putting myself and him in some level of distress, and well, if I can't avoid everyone else I can hardly avoid the last member of our amoeba. *chuckle* It's really more amusing than aggravating really, and in the end I was happy to have company yesterday and the night before after my major thinkathon was done.

Hmm. gotta leave in 10 min...

Yesterday after sunny came home from her night of the living blue dress, MomZ showed up and too us to lunch before launching on her long drive back to the feral backwoods of New York State. It had been years since I'd eaten at the ABC and wow, the pulled pork and the sweet potato fries were good, though I must say I was distracted by the conversation and the utterly cute, helpful waitress. What is with waitresses named Jen? They're all adorable! Yikes! Spent the rest of the afternoon with sydneycat watching horrible TV and going out on errandry, and then morlock and I played out my bit of the upcoming game, since I've been separated from the rest of the party and HOLY CRAP fucked up shit is happening. Yay. Can't wait until the Mage book comes out, really want to see what the fourth edition (which I'm starting to seriously like a lot) does with that. Sounds messed up. *glee*

ok, I've killed enough time. Time to do the "do I have everything?" dance and get out of here.
kjpepper: (green bodice)
Fuck it's hot, and damn, it keeps refusing to rain in any way that actually helps.

That aside, today was wonderful. Shopping in Northampton with [livejournal.com profile] sundart and [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and [livejournal.com profile] aisha7576. Coming home and chilling by myself for a bit while everyone else headed elsewheres. Heading upstairs for a little bit and rediscovering the wonderful silliness that was Night Court. And then most of the family gathering for [livejournal.com profile] anzovin's "that's me in the corner, that's me in the spotlight, losing my religion" story. Which I'd heard before, but due to extreme tendancies to follow several tangents to a conversation at once, he's incapable of telling the same story twice. Not to mention sometimes new and different nuances come out in the retelling. So somehow this time the story included the various differences between sects of Judaism plus a lively rant/debate on Israeli/Palestinian policy/politics. Note to self: must talk to him more... I mean really, sunny's been seeing him since January, and apart from a couple of random chats, I haven't really had much of a chance to really talk to him much, which as he's displayed his overall coolness on many an occasion I have no real excuse for. Course... considering the bit where he's superglued to [livejournal.com profile] sundart's ass, I must say I haven't had an opportunity. *chuckle*

Well, I think I'm going to go bed and finish the sequel to The Silver Metal Lover and try not to melt. Gah. Autumn can start at any time, people.
kjpepper: (base kleo)
last night was a good one, which was desperately needed after the batshit circus of the day. It started with some hangouts and tarot readings with [livejournal.com profile] aisha7576, [livejournal.com profile] anzovin and [livejournal.com profile] sundart, then after they skipped out for their own hangouts and shenanigans, [livejournal.com profile] aisha7576 and I hung out and caught up for a bit before heading upstairs to join the small party in progress at sydmor's. Lots o people! [livejournal.com profile] cell23 and [livejournal.com profile] chirping_monkey and [livejournal.com profile] wrpigeek and [livejournal.com profile] jade_eyes13. And of course, babycakes, who seems to have discovered a whole new range of expressions, sprouted a few teeth and is slowly learning the logistics of getting around using her feet. So a good get together was had... [livejournal.com profile] aisha7576 and [livejournal.com profile] morlock got to chat for a bit about Valleystink and polyamory, and [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat bought me the gorgeous amethyst necklace [livejournal.com profile] chirping_monkey had just finished making. *sigh* I need to get back into jewelry craft, I miss it. But anyway squee. It's also good to see that the makers of Give Me The Brain have moved up in the world beyond Cheap Ass Games and have actual cards now. :) And of course, any party with Mike's Hard is my kind of party.

I'm pleased to see aisha7576 unwinding some! Vacations are wonderful!!

Today's going to be soupy... I really hate sitting around and sweating for no reason... Sweat's kinda like a reward - I want to have earned it. You know? I don't mind if I'm actually doing something that warrants it, but I do not like sitting around soaking through t-shirts without provocation. Gah.

Well, hopefully there will be thunderstorms. :)

So last night was awesome beyond the capacity to speak about how awesome it was.

The diner get together went well - the turnout was a bit smaller than expected, but I and mine and [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126's and hers got on quite well. :) Well it's always having a new audience to tell stories/explain digestive woes to! Plus this was the first time I truly got to appreciate [livejournal.com profile] kahlan9386, who really is adorable in her big brown puppy-dog brown eyed curvy cuteness. :) [livejournal.com profile] drklord1922, glad for the change to hang out, yay, I'm still horrificly embarrassed by the handle screw up, but you took it with humor, kudos. And [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126, what can I say, I'm glad we ultimately proved Timmycakes right about the two of us. *hugs* ;)

And then... there was movie!!!!

cut for utter fangirl gushing and drooling. )

I loved seeing everyone last night (too many folk to mention by name so I'll just say hugs for everyone and THANK YOU for helping me and mine conquer and defeat an ENTIRE ROW of the theater some of you! Knyght and the Paladin - hugs, I hope you got home ok (going to go check the caller ID now and see if you gave me a call). And [livejournal.com profile] lordaerith, put me out of my misery, 'cause I can't for the life of me figure out whether you were actually kidding about the string bass (in which case I feel dumb for not being absolutely sure) or dead serious, (in which case I'm a total asshole for making fun of you and I'm sorry).

Next month is Ghostbusters. Squee.

Post movie was a little bit of quiet time with the boy, and then some OMG-it's-late-so-hangings-out-basically-now-consists-of-snoring time with [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat, [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune, [livejournal.com profile] theharbinger and Ivy, whom they'd not yet met. Somehow fell asleep on sydmor's couch around 3:45, woke up four hours later somewhat confused, understandibly.

Not much planned for today other than staunchly avoiding the Teddy Bear Fest going on outside our windows this weekend, watching sydmor's appliances being delivered, and taking it easy - it's been a seriously hard week, and I intend to chill the fuck out today.maybe work on a picture or two. :) But first, need to go down to my house, get out of these clothes, and make breakfast. mmmm, coffee....
kjpepper: (base kleo)
Funny how I can tell immediate that my web site is down by looking at my LJ (my background image is fed from it.) Wonder what's up this morning?

Had a relatively good evening... we didn't wind up gaming as planned, though. What we ended up doing was that us girls made [livejournal.com profile] anzovin sit through The Craft cause he'd never seen it... apparently I have to sit through Lilo and Stitch sometime soon... yes I know, I need to see it. :P Maybe if the trailers hadn't been so hideously dumb when it came out, I would have, so blame Disney's lame-ass marketing department. Sheesh. ;)

After that I had a bit of a double feature, as I got some long delayed kick-the-cats-out time with [livejournal.com profile] sundart, and way later [livejournal.com profile] morlock came down for cuddling and wound up staying. Definitely one of those evening where I feel quite blessed in the people-love-me department. :)

Today though looks like a long patience-testing day at work, with maybe a bit of [livejournal.com profile] lostinnocencia later and some comics drawing, since [livejournal.com profile] morlock got a working scanner off of freecycle :) At some point I have to clean up the other half of my room and sweep...

Ah well. *cracks knuckles* onwards!
kjpepper: (don't panic)
Holy crap. You couldn't have ordered up more perfect weather for a wedding than today. Looks like it's going to be gorgeous for [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and [livejournal.com profile] morlock's. which is good cause it's kinda outside on a mountain. :)

So. Everybody go here and congrajimatate them: http://www.dragonsea.net/jands/guestbook.php. Like now. Hop like bunny! I'll wait.

...


all done? ok, then we can go on.

Yesterday, understandibly, was much crazed pre-wedding running around, which I'm not going to get into much here cause it was basically pre wedding running around. Highlights included getting my tux (which I look OMG hot in especially with the hair, squee) and hanging for a bit at [livejournal.com profile] morlock's mom's. Then wedding rehearsal, which was the expected amount of hectic, and amusing as I realized the last time I'd been anywhere near Skinner Mountain I was having a bit of an adventure with the Airman (*oy* *giggle*). Afterwards [livejournal.com profile] morlock's parents put on a rehearsal dinner at China Dynasty (yay buffet!), and then [livejournal.com profile] sundart, [livejournal.com profile] anzovin and I got lost in Springfield trying to pick up [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune... but the funny part was that we made a wrong turn onto the right street!!! Crazy how that happens. But we picked up blue, and that was all good... and the evening was concluded with [livejournal.com profile] morlock, [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune and I watching the first half of Mary Poppins, cause damn it I had a long fractious day and I needed a comfort movie. I was just wicked amused that I had very enthusiastic company singing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" along with me. Thank you guys for that.

Today there is tux wearing and wedding. Tomorrow, there is recapturing some semblance of normal. But first, I'm going to see if I can finish this movie.
