Oh gods. A lot. If I started naming them all we'd be here forever. Also, this number is augmented when you factor in all the songs that I don't think I know by heart but can sing all the words to when they come on the radio. It's one of those "human brains are really quite interesting" things in terms of memory and what unlocks it.

Question is oddly on point, as I was about to post about skipping this week's podcast and thinking about new music in general. Like the song from this commercial. And both Lily Allen's albums. My ears and ipod are sponges...

Plan for today... go with dad to three (!!!) doctor's appointments, have a sit down with Toodledoo and update it, play with the paint samples I picked up at Benjamin Moore yesterday, rescue my laundry from the dryer, figure out when I'm going to have time to go to the library, more thinking/wibbling about car rental, wedding presents and trips. And work. Oh god, work. I'm going to take the laptop with me and see if any of these places Dad has to go have wireless.

[This was supposed to have posted at 11:45 last night; don't know why it didn't]

Today was a wash in the productive department. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day.

The plastics are down, lol. You can imagine how stuffy the house was past couple of days. Even weirder, my window is open. I can't tell you how long it's been since THAT has happened. We're talking a six by four foot sash here. It's always weird how sometimes I still live under Mom's rules in subtle, unconscious ways, and while MA has turned me into enough of a natural light freak to get over the-curtains-must-stay-closed thing, I must say I never even considered opening the window. But there it is in front of me, letting in a breeze, the peculiar smell of New York in bloom, and the clear, unmuted rattle of passing Q trains in the open cut behind the house.

It's oddly quiet out there. I say odd because once the city gets above a certain temperature, it positively explodes into 24 hour noise that is only killed by pouring rain. Course everyone down here is freaking out about swine flu so I imagine that keeping folk inside.

I wonder if there's a way to get to Home Depot in Red hook on the bus from here? Apparently last summer one of the gutters backed up into the house, and the ceiling in Mom's room and the dining room got stained. I'm sick of looking at it. Really I need to revive the project of cleaning shit out and restoring. This room hasn't gotten a new coat of paint since the mid seventies. It's gonna be like pulling teeth, but I'm getting back in the mood to reopen that particular battle. Eh, who knows if it'll get done. Heat tends to make that inertia problem I have worse.

I don't know. Just kinda rambling I guess before bed.

I seem to have more or less kicked the sleep problem that had me waking up at 10 instead of my usual 6-7. Keeping the window curtains pulled back helps, but the true trick is drinking about a liter of water before bed - that'll get you up real fast in the morning. Staying up, well that's a different beast entirely.

Plan today is to stick close to home, work, read, and hide from the heat. I may venture out later on today... need to wander down Flatbush a bit later and pick up anti-treesex pills finally. Yesterday was kind of the nail in the coffin - I can't put it off anymore.

Need to revive my toodledoo. I find it incredibly funny/exasperating that not only is reorganizing my to-do list on my to-do list, but I'm procrastinating horribly from doing so.

Pills coffee breakfast now.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
kjpepper: (touch my tralala...)
1) my INR's finally where it needs to be. MY LAST INJECTION IS TODAY. W00t no moar needles!

2) They say it's going to be near 70 degrees F by 5pm today. W00t again for no moar winter. Or at least it's dying painfully. Of course, we're going to have a typical New England spring I fear - snowstorm, week of temperate weather, and then the temp'll shoot up to over 9000** 90 and stay there until September.

3) Makeup Drivers Ed class tonight. Maybe horrify Ernie with my tale of woe from last week. Reminds me, I need to practice this weekend.

4) I don't know what else. But I have a feeling today's going to be a good day. We'll see if I am right or if my hopes will be cruelly dashed to pieces by the end of today.



**old obscure DBZ meme, yes, but still makes me giggle like a fool.
kjpepper: (curse! curse!)
Welcome to Boston, where the new tunnels system should have signs posted warning motorists of falling rock, it takes fifteen wrong turns before you get to your hotel, and when you get into the hotel itself, it follows dream logic. No I'm serious, if you're like me and have dreams about hotels every so often you'll immediately recognize the place where room 201 is between rooms 237 and 238. You've dreamed it. it's crazy.

Anyway, we got here, after doing battle with laundry, unfinished renders and compositing, packing, emotional overwraughtness right and left, putting a deposit down on our weddingthingie space, and trying to get through Boston without killing anybody due to the fact that while our hotel may be in plain sight from the highway, getting to said place took 45 minutes of navigational blundering due to bad signage and inconveniently placed road islands. And then there's the weird dream logic hotel, where the hallways are ovens cause all the air conditioners vent into them and the numbering system for the rooms is quite remarkably hosed.

I've decided that I can't stand the underground tunnel type things. While driving in Boston is legendarily nightmarish, I find I quite like being able to see things around me like people and trees and sky and stuff, unless I'm going through a mountain or under a body of water or on the subway, though I suppose I tacitly support the idea of making driving less fun so maybe more people could do the public transport thing or something. Seriously... the tunnels just made me extremely claustrophobic, which is funny cause it's a five lane underground highway. Plus there's that little thing where part of one somewhere collapsed and killed someone a couple of weeks ago doesn't help with the whole making me comfy with it idea. On the other end one of the wrong turns we made got us lost in the North End, which was extremely pretty while we were trying to find our way back... I saw a couple of buildings that I totally want to photograph... there was this office building with Gigantic. Pointy. Ostentatious. Chandeliers. That I of course thought were the coolest thing evar in their "Ph33r me, we are GOTHIC" sort of way. And a store of some sort that had large models of ships in the windows. Might have to go back and check that out later.

So since C and I might have opportunities to get away from the Revenge of the CGI Nerds convention, does anyone have any special things or places we can go that only cost the price of T fare? We are teh poor. :)

Speaking of which. In the words of Stephen Colbert, "Hollywood, you are on notice." I read in this week's EW that they now have to gall to be remaking Revenge of the Nerds. I am apopletic. I mean, what next? Back to the Future? Grrr.

Anyway, today has been shitty and I just had to help haul lots of heavy compy equipment upstairs in the yecch that is the soupy weather, so I'm going to put an end to the misery by going the hell to bed.
kjpepper: (random (potterpuffs))
Tonight's been surprisingly productive, surprisingly only because I came home from work and immediately dropped into bed, I was so gorram tired. I managed to roust myself around 9, and commenced hardcore pottering about.

so lessee, between 9PM and 4:15AM, I have managed to do two loads of laundry (whites/underwear and t-shirts), cornrow my hair in preparation for teh yarnage, work a buttload on work stuff (which, while aggravating, has a certain measure of geeky enjoyment to be gained from it), clean and swap out the catbox, and then take four bags of trash and a cubic assload of recycling out (we're talking about five trips up and down the stairs, not counting the wild goose chase up and down the back staircase chasing after a runaway Valentino). I was so pleased with myself and so hot and sticky after completing the various and sundry things that I doffed my shirt and strolled back into the building topless. Well, okay, actually that had more to do with me being hot and sticky and dead deserted in that way that 4AM can be, and there was a nice cool breeze. Now I'm all showered up and franky pigging out on my reward for being so productive - mainly having a smorgasbord of all the comfort foods I like that are a) in the house and b) don't have dairy, and washing it down with the highly addictive Trader Joe's organic lemonade that [livejournal.com profile] morlock has managed to get me hooked on.

Later today I have to mind the work phone, and then there will be some Flat Switching, and then some yarning, and if the rest of my costume doesn't show up by tomorrow, an emergency trip to either Northampton or JoAnn's so I can bash together something out of the measure of stretch velvet I have lying around the house. Which maybe I should have done in the first place. Oh well. Anyways, it's going to busy tomorrow. *sigh* I suppose I ought to finish with the frenetic feeding and hit the sack.
kjpepper: (goddess)
tonight's...

squee moment: I love getting handwritten notes/letters from my sweeties.

method of scaring myself buggy: reading about the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and then about radiation poisoning and criticality accidents on Wikipedia. Yikes.

taste sensation: [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat's noodle casserole

surreal moment: [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat watching The Prisoner on her laptop, me watching SVU on the TV on mute with the closed captioning on.

asthma attack: brought to you by making a two block mad dash for the five thirty bus... and catching it!

near miss: pouncing [livejournal.com profile] sundart in bed when she had an open bottle of water in her hand.

silly moment: scooping up the Ivy cat and having her immediately take a swipe at my hair. I forget that I'm a walking kitty amusement park when my hair's done.

reminder: nobody's perfect.

random craving: sicilian piiiiiiiie.
kjpepper: (base kleo)
I'm actually having a good day. I'm doing absolutely nothing, but that in itself sometimes is a good thing if you don't allow yourself to dwell on how you got nothing accomplished. :)

Basically I've spent today enjoying the sunshine pouring through my window (though for a couple of hours this morning it was kinda hot trying to sleep in the aggressive sunbeams), engaging in activities that would make a Vegas showgirl blush, gorging myself on breakfast cereal (mmm, honey nut cheerios!) and overdosing on Strangers in Paradise (still missing volume 16, but considering SiP is pretty much a well-drawn soap opera with lesbian mobsters, I don't feel like I actually missed too much) and Rurouni Kenshin manga. Once I get the anime DVDs back from [livejournal.com profile] bluewindkitsune, I think it might be time to rewatch it, though I still have yet to grab the rest of the Kyoto saga on DVD. So many gorram DVDs, so little time.

I did manage to unslug myself enough to cut my nails and start some laundry. Also today's the day I got to put in the NuvaRing. So goddamn weird, lemme tell you! I'm going to be worrying for the next week about whether it's in right or whether it's going to fly out if I sneeze or something. The wrapper does say it doesn't matter where precisely it's sitting as long as it's in but still... eep. Ah, well, it's better than having an inch and a half square area of my ass or my shoulders waxed every week... Oh that reminds me. *puts removal date on Google Calendar* There, cause you know I'll forget. But yeah... One ring to rule them all. Them being my egg cells and their rate of poppage, I suppose.

I have made the following observation about wearing boy underwear - if you don't have to pull any equipment through them every so often, the y front makes a fabulous spare pocket if you don't actually have one. Like today, I was wearing a skirt and had both my hands full and needed somewhere to quickly stick my cell phone - et voila!! Yes, I know, I'm a fruitcake, but it amused me that I could basically hold anything up to a full wallet size in there... celly, spare change, keys... though I don't know how comfy i'd be if my crotched jingled. :)

Later tonight, [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat and I are going to Baku's for dinner. Then I don't know. I think my body knows that it's May Eve tonight and Beltane tomorrow - you could say I got in a bit of quality celebrating this morning >:) and really, I am quite in the mood for more. We'll see how that works out...

Hmm, I think it may be time to swap laundry. And investigate the strange techno stuff [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat is currently listening to, as it sounds fairly tasty. Grr. Where the hell is my iPod? *makes note to actually look under the bed*

Gray day

Apr. 22nd, 2006 09:22 pm
kjpepper: (Valentino)
Today I did pretty much absolutely nothing. I got a ton of sleep, farted about on the internet, cursed the Extravaganja outside, trimmed much of the fluff off of my dumb blonde boycat (much to his discomfiture) and even braved the rain for a bit to fetch Chinese food for me and the sunny. (so yes. I did get the beef I was whining for all day - not to mention there are leftovers for tomorrow. Squeee.) I dunno, today was just so gray and gloomy that it was kind of perfect for mooching about, feeding the PMS monster with craptons of Dove caramels (thank you, [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126!), brooding, and sleeping.

Tomorrow should prove to be more of the same, though I hope to get a bit more accomplished tomorrow than today. Though according to the cute little quasi-fortunes they have in the Dove wrappers, it is okay to do nothing sometimes. I agree, today's exercise in utter lethargy hasn't hurt me much. :)

And now, due to raging headache (prolly from the Chinese - stupid MSG) I am going to bed early. Again. Well, as long as I don't make a habit of it - I have a deeply cherished rep as a nightowl to maintain.
kjpepper: (sweeties)
So far it's been a good one, despite messed up dreams about my mother and getting rudely awakened by overly exuberant contemporary Christians out on the Common at 7am. SEVEN AM, I tell you. I mean yeah, praise Him and the miracle of His resurrection and all but sheesh, couldn't y'alls have waited until 1 pm when the rest of the heathen world was AWAKE? It wouldn't have been nearly as bad if the event wasn't headlined by a pair of Indigo Girl wannabes... y'know, if the Indigo Girls had been born again and in the process lost their talent and started singing CC music... which really is all pretty flat and talentless, really. Give me some good gospel anyday. Black people actually know how to give praise and make it sound interesting, and even then I can only stand it for about an hour.

Yesterday - shit. I'm still actually pretty sore from yesterday's adventures in praise of Hestia/Vesta. I swear, Vestal Virgins must be all buff and Valkyrie like just from the effort of scrubbing and hauling and stuff, goodness knows I lost about ten pounds yesterday. But my efforts resulted in a somewhat rearranged living room for sydmor (including actually fixing the shelves in the corner so they weren't precariously balanced on boxes), and just about every piece of laundry [livejournal.com profile] sundart and I own (including most of the bedding) being done. Today, after sucking down some liquid inspiration in the form of orange Fanta, shall be more of the same, as two houses worth of dishes need to be done and a world of trash (also in both apartments) needs to be taken out, not to mention yesterday's laundry needs folding. And I really should wash the comforters too. Worthy pursuits, since I have the Tower to myself again for the afternoon. :) Anyway, yesterday's efforts were rewarded by some rather tasty dinner made by [livejournal.com profile] anzovin (which had the miraculous property of turning two snarly wolverines back into affectionate, cuddly women) and an exhausted but very happy [livejournal.com profile] morlock I find it both sweet and amusing that all I really have to do to reinforce the claim I have on part of his soul is clean something. :)

Last night and this morning (post overly jubilant Christians) were spent having some good hard hangouts with [livejournal.com profile] morlock. We didn't make it to the movie since we were both tired like fuck, but he did play some Kingdom Hearts 2 and I've gotten a little farther in Practical Demonkeeping, which is excellent, but not keeping my attention as riveted as Bloodsucking Fiends did. Of course, Practical Demonkeeping is Moore's first book, and there are a couple of places where that shows. But overall I'm enjoying it, and somewhere in all the crazed housekeeping I hope to have it done today. And we hung out and watched TV this morning before he had to go catch his plane to DC. TBS is running fucking hilarious commercials for the Lord of the Rings trilogy today (footage of Frodo and Sam and a shocked looking Gandalf set to Atlantic Starr's "Secret Lovers"). I highly suggest watching it at some point today just to see them, that is if no one's put them up on YouTube yet. Best editing EVAR. But yeah, this morning I got to hug and kiss and send off both my sweeties today - sundart to work, morlock to vacation. *smile* the two of them make me so incredibly happy sometimes, you have no idea.

*sigh* well, the dishes ain't gonna do themselves. *swigs Fanta* onwards then.
kjpepper: (there it is)
Hey, [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Not like I'm not going to see you later, but hey.

You know... it's kinda sad when a commercial can affect you almost to the point of tears.

See there's this Cingular commercial. It's actually the first one they released in the Raising the Bar campaign, where this guy in a convertible drives across the country to see his girl in San Francisco (cue lots of hidden five bar imagery). Anyway, it ends with him pulling up in front of her house and sending her a TM that says "LOOK OUTSIDE" and then the camera cuts to him, sitting in the car with a big doofy smile... and that's the end of the commercial. I've always been kind of mad about that, 'cause I wanted to see what her reaction was, you know? It didn't feel like a satisfactory ending.

Well, they now have a new commercial where chickie is in her new place, unpacking boxes full of pictures of her and her guy (one pic seems to imply he's her husband), she gets the text message, sees him outside, and then leaps into his arms in a big overexuberant display of OMGwhatareyoudoinghereyaybbq!

Yeah, it's silly, and it's not as if you don't know from the other commercial that she was going to be overjoyed to see him, but it was good to get the resolution, you know? It was kind of like back in the 80s when I actually got kinda involved in those Taster's Choice commercials with the ongoing story arc between the redhead and her distinguished, perpetually out of coffee British neighbor (incidentally, played by Anthony Steward Head of Buffy and Rocky Horror fame).

Ok, time for me to stop being a sappy doof.

A not to self from last night - the ABC has a tasty little confection called the Grateful Dead. Tasty, drunk making shit, let me tell you. :) That and other than whupping [livejournal.com profile] morlock's ass at pool (mostly by accident), I've rediscovered that I'm fairly decent at darts. Guess the hours last spring I spent contemplating [livejournal.com profile] harinezumi's living room dartboard paid off...

Note to self from today - *sigh* One of these days, I need to go to Newbury Comics and get something for me. It's insane, I love that store, I can see it from my friggin window, and yet, somehow I only make it in there to get other people stuff. Course, never having money also has something to do with that.

Tonight I am going to [livejournal.com profile] htl_1126 and [livejournal.com profile] drklord1922's party with [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat... This weekend's been so weird, Thursday was Thanksgiving, and both yesterday and today have both felt like Sunday. Which sorta sucks. No weekend needs more than one Sunday...
kjpepper: (underpants!)
then I swear I'm going to go be productive. Seriously.

all about today )
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)
Just nineish more hours and then LONG WEEKEND. OMG BBQ KTHX. Getting through said nineish hours? Well.... we'll see where I am at four.

The college folk are back with a vengeance. I made the mistake of getting used to a quiet bus with only ten or so people, one of whom is a fairly creepy old lady who insisted on sitting next to me once... she's a bit beside the point though. Yesterday, the bus filled almost to capacity with people toting huge laundry hampers stuffed with the largest sized bags Target gives out, which were in turn stuffed with things like paper towels, underwear, soap, and gargantuan boxes of cereal. *chuckle* I remember those days. :) Anyway, the ride home was noisy. I suppose I ought to get used to it. Still, I will gladly put up with a little noise in exchange for the buses running more often and being able to take them free with ID. Just as long as I don't take the bus that goes by PVPA at around 4. Children of dirty hippies, what odors they make.

Anyhoo.

Other than the diner get together followed immediately by Ghostbusters (hmm, need to post a reminder on [livejournal.com profile] pvrewind) there is not too much on the docket for this weekend. I'm hoping I'll manage to get in to work a bit and not only catch up, but reorganize my office some. sydneycat and I made some plans to go to the three county fair. I still have to do a little more reading up on Werewolf and do my character sheet for that. And maybe I shall tame the fro too. And make some icons. I have a few I want to make from La Migration Bigoudenn because I've gotten rather obssessed with that particular short's adorable French randomness, and Duel, just cause I'm like obsessed and stuff. :) Oh! That's another thing... have to go to Target and get a frame for the Duel poster [livejournal.com profile] anzovin brought over. What do you think, [livejournal.com profile] sundart, over the TV?

Time to finish teh coffee and scoot.
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. :)

and I might mention far to early to be up. Oh well.

I'm not sure what exactly I wanted to put in this entry. Not much has been really going on over the past couple of days, just hangouts with the 'Quad (with special guest star the Jew) really. Sunday [livejournal.com profile] sundart and [livejournal.com profile] anzovin cooked the family (minus [livejournal.com profile] morlock who was gamin') dinner, then we sat down to watch This Is Spinal Tap, which the girlies had never seen despite me nagging at Sunny for a good four years (but she apologized about a quarter way into the movie so I WIN. yes). The intro to the DVD is equally as hilarious as the movie is, kudos to them. I'm also amused that this movie is the reason why Christopher Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis are married - apparently she saw this movie, called up his agent and was all like "OMGWTF he's cute! Can we go on a date?" *chuckle* It's always the ones with the singularly bizarre get together story, isn't it? Can you just imagine the person giving Chris Guest that phone message? "Excuse me, sir, that girl from those Halloween slasher movies is on the phone. She wants to shag you."

Last night [livejournal.com profile] morlock and I did some work on the comics, with a few amusing delays that had me extremely glad I didn't know him in college or high school. The reason, either way, would have been the same - nothing done due to sexins all the freak time. Despite that, I did finally get one full strip at least sketched out. The style's finally resolving into something I like.

PSA - my celly's still AWOL. if you need me, try work, home, Gmail, [livejournal.com profile] morlock or [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat in that order.

all right, time to schlub off to work now. *sigh*
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!

well damn.

kjpepper: (Tenna (talk to spooky))
Today was like one of those fly dreams
Didn't even see a berry flashin those high beams
No helicopter looking for a murder
Two in the mornin got the Fatburger
Even saw the lights of the Goodyear Blimp
And it read, "Ice Cube's a pimp" (yeah)
Drunk as hell but no throwin up
Half way home and my pager still blowin up
Today I didn't even have to use my A.K.
I got to say it was a good day.

-- Ice Cube --

And you know what? It was. Maybe not on the same level as Cube's, but I'd been hurtin' for an all around decent day. Got a little more wedding fu worked out, made friends with the sweetest, calmest most adorable little poodle ever, had a couple of projects at work tie up nicely, [livejournal.com profile] captainlove repaid me in superbly cooked buffalo steak, I have a bed lined up to arrive this weekend, I got an email from the chickie from the Villa Jidiots, [livejournal.com profile] morlock called and sounded ok rather than dead in the soul region for the first time in weeks, I got to see [livejournal.com profile] sundart work a little cocktail dress, got to watch [livejournal.com profile] anzovin and [livejournal.com profile] captainlove reach an interesting and surprising accord, and to top it all off, I am slowly working my way through the rest of a Bart's margarita smoothie (no dairy!).

Today was a good day (shit!)
