We interupt your regular programing...

Due to unforseen Bad Day Is Bad, and the betrayal that is my entire body, phone post will happen tomorrow.

Horrorscope is filled with horror:

[Tarot.com Capricorn Horoscope] You know that something's coming down the track at you and as much as you try to get out of the way, you can't. Fortunately, no physical harm is indicated; this is an emotional freight train that can confront you with the wide gulf between you and a loved one. It's not time to force the resolution between two people who respond very differently. Instead, stay aware of the feelings that arise, for they reveal where there is work to be done.

Is 3:30pm too early to go to bed?

meh.

So I went to a memorial service today. My aunt's mother died the day before Easter after a long battle with kidney failure and a ton of other problems and bah. My maternal grandmother went sorta crazy when I was about 10 or 11 (thank you, genetics -_-), and my paternal grandparents I didn't see often and died when I was in junior high, so Geri was really the only grandmother figure I saw on a regular basis at family gatherings. It was a nice memorial, and I sat at the table with my cousin, her husband and baby son, and all her friends. Cried, which I hate doing in public and in front of family especially, and now I'm back home in jammies and trying to get up the energy to rinse off my makeup. *flops* So am bummed today.

Anyway, there was mention of saying I love you more often. And really, that's not bad advice. So you know what, best f-list ever? I LOVE YOU GUYS. Thanks for hangin' in there and letting me have my pity parties and being just freakin' awesome 24-7. ♥

It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers

Stolen from mah wifey, [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe...

1 chance.
1 honest answer.
That's all you get.

You get to ask me 1 question.
Any question, anything, no matter how crazy, dirty, or wrong it is.

One catch, that should go without saying: no mentioning the questions or answers to others. :)

But I dare you to repost this.
And see what people ask you!

Comments are screened.


I'm a pretty open-book-heart-on-sleeve sorta girl, but I'm curious to see if there's anything out there y'all desire to know.

ps: Someone needs to 'fess up about the mysterious box of Zebra Cakes that showed up on my doorstep on Monday. *eyes you all* OM NOMNOMNOMNOM! <33333 Or not, but either way, THANK YOU TO MYSTERIOUS BENEFACTOR! SO TASTY. ._.

bogged down with stuff

I have so much crap that I don't need, and I don't even have the singlemost idea of where to start and how to get rid of it. ><;; I'm almost to the point where I just want to chuck it all into the trash and have done with it already. *sigh*

This is my life right now. Oh Depeche Mode, you never fail me when I need a good emo theme song. *cuddles DM* New album, Sounds of the Universe, dropped in the US today. I got mine for $3.99. SCORE. Song to follow...

I reached the wrong ends by the wrong means... )

SOCKS!

[livejournal.com profile] isolabela and I started fraternal twin socks this weekend. Same pattern (Charade, from ravelry.com), same yarn, different colorways. And, as it turns out, despite the fact that I went up not one but TWO needles sizes, hers are STILL turning out bigger than mine, and I am worried these babies might not make it over my feet. ^^;; Aw well.

(Fraternal) Twin Terror Socks - Charade


Emily's are on the left (blue/orange/pink) and mine are on the right (pink/orange/yellow).

*sigh* Am packed up again for the train ride home. Must thrust myself into the shower and leave mah twin. ;_; Have I mentioned that I don't want to go to work tomorrow? Bah. =P

ps: [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine - Emily and I might suck at drunken Disney trivia, but you KNOW you love us best regardless. ^_~ *xoxoxoxoxoxoxo*

Mini Vacation #1 - Twin Terror In T-Town Two: The Alliteration Weekend

So I am having fun, and being all sorts of relaxed and sluglike. Not having to go to work on a Friday, and being able to just walk around and be...me. Geekiness and all. After the week I had, especially with all the crying done on Wednesday (but hey, I got to break in that new box of tissues =P), it's nice to be away from the crap. Friday I was still feeling pretty shitty, but made myself get over it -- sometimes you just have to squelch the self-pity down and move on. Twin Terror in T-Town with [livejournal.com profile] isolabela is in full effect, and it's been a huge relief to just kick it with someone I totally adore and TALK ABOUT KNITTING AND HAVE THEM UNDERSTAND AND HAVE OPINIONS and watch copious amounts of anime (and Drop Dead Gorgeous last night, while starting in on our fraternal twin terror socks.) There was crazy plumbing drama at the ungodly hour of 1:30am, and I'm a little lacking in the sleep department right now, but there is Bento and luau and sleepovers on the docket today, and I shall persevere. With only a mild nap attack. =P

Have also been able to chat more with my Ohana Collective these past few days, which makes things not only easier to deal with, but makes me happy in ways that I cannot begin to explain. There's just something about family, yo. Just wish I coulda gotten in on the pedi/massage chair action from last night! I WANT PURTY TOESIES TOOOOO! *pokies [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine* <33333 (I did, however, get a brownie and ice cream and an Emily last night, so there's always that. =P)

So I am off to shower and face my fear of a bunch of strangers to meet the twin for her break at work and GET TEA AND FUD. I have given up coffee for a while since it's harsh on my tummy, and my tummy has Not Been Happy With Me recently anyway (apparently, it doesn't like it when I, yanno...eat. Or drink. Or live, apparently. *kicks it*) so I've been consisting on tea. The headaches haven't been bad, so I have hope that I can survive. Because dude, I'm from Seattle. We drink coffee. Often. Fancy coffee, expensive coffee, drip coffee, we drink it all. I feel like I'm going back on my heritage. *grin*

Wheel of the Year turns again...

Now, I'm mostly a pagan. I've fought long and hard to find a spiritual path that felt like home, and Paganism was it. I'm not a perfect pagan - I don't really do much to celebrate the holidays, and while I have before, I don't often go out and commune with Mother Nature with my fellow heathens. *grin* For what it's worth, I've always sort of had a hard time with faith. Oh, and I'm sorta lazy. =P But I always acknowledge it in the most important place: my heart.

I have friends of all walks of life, all colors, all belief systems. I talk shop with former Mormons (and current ones), hardcore Christians, lapsed Catholics, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists. I've read parts of the Bible, all of the Tao Te Ching, and manymany books on my own spiritual beliefs. In the end, I've cobbled together a few things that I simply call "Wrenism." *grin* But whatever your perferred (or lack of) deity, today is Easter/Eostre/just another Sunday. I miss the egg hunts from when I was little, and the pretty new clothes to wear to my aunt's family party. My mom, bless her heart, still acknowledges it to me: this year was a bag of Lindor Extra-Dark Chocolate Truffles. Oh. Hell. Yes. *giggle*

So I wish to you, dear f-list, a blessed day in however you choose to spend it. <3

(no subject)

So today was pretty "meh" too, although slightly less "meh" than yesterday. Mom proceeded to scream at me for not jumping to attention and offering my laptop to her last night, and then proceeded to bitch about it this morning, to which I had to reply (twice), "Stop acting like such a damn martyr." She's pissed at my brother and my dad, and then takes it out on ME, who is ALWAYS ON HER FUCKING SIDE. I am just saying. Maybe is not good to act like a menstrual 14 year old girl to your best ally? -_-

I did, however, get a coffee smoothie from my manager, the coveted Denise Interchangable Circular Knitting Needles (the sexiest phrase ever, let me just tell you =P) with dollie money, and sushi. Also managed to race upstairs with minimal contact with my mother. Score. I am exhausted though. This week (month? MONTHS?) have just been...hard. There is very little keeping me going. I think JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNE and my mini-trips to my twin and Olivia are the only things that are keeping me semi-sane. *sigh*

Am hoping my yarn for my Wrenna sweater comes tomorrow (it's the last one on the top row: Oregano. Many thanks to my ohana, [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine, for finalizing on a color. ♥) I am gonna be hiding this weekend in my room methinks, and need something to keep me busy. ^^;;

~ Enough work to keep us busy nearly to the end of the day
~ Got impressions taken for my I-don't-have-to-pay-for-it nightguard (although, really, I actually threw up a little. ^^;; That was the not so good part. Plaster + bad gag reflex = all sorts of nrghyness)
~ Tomorrow is Thursday, which means the day after that is Friday!
~ Made good (almost) on my resolve to drink waaaaay more water
~ Have also made good on my resolve to eat a helluva lot better as well

Happy MeMe

Because really, how can I refuse not just [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe, but also [livejournal.com profile] xtinethepirate? Well, I guess the short answer is that I can't. I submit happily. =P

1. Post at least one something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this everyday for eight days without fail.
3. Tag eight of your friends to do the same.

I doth tag [livejournal.com profile] ehlara, [livejournal.com profile] mcgarrygirl78, and [livejournal.com profile] yuhime (okay, so that's only three. The other five can pick themselves! =P)

~ Planning JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNE funness with Chrissy
~ Getting call from Thori that starts out, "I'm in the car with B, and can't text because, yanno, ONE of us at least has to keep our eyes on the road." *gigglefit*
~ Making the wifey giggle <3
~ Listening to obscene comedy during working hours (Denis Leary ftw!)
~ Ranting to "the good co-worker" over fast food sanity break
~ Realizing that it's only 8 days till T-Town with the terrible twin ♥, 22 days till Portland with Liv, and One. More. Day. Closer. To. JUUUUUUNE!

ick.

Am trying to be up and moving around, but I feel blah and nauseous and stomach-hurty and icky. Is gorgeous out, WARM - 67°F!!, I even wore flipflops out in public this morning, and now, all I can do is lay in bed feeling gross, and wander between curling up with a heating pad and sitting at my laptop with a heating pad. Urgh. I had plans. Full of stuff. And things. Now I just want to sleep, and I know that if I attempt that, there will be no sleep tonight, and tomorrow will just be worse than it normally is.

Going back to bed now.

Storage Unit of Despair, thwart me no longer!

Ha! I have been lamenting over my lost Stitch plushie pretty much ever since I moved back home in June. I had him in a very specific place so I could take him with me, and as usual, mom just grabbed and packed, regardless of what I wanted. BUT I FOUND HIM! It only took a few minutes of pushing and moving and cursing. Of course, it was a box at the very top in plain view, instead of the bottom where I was searching, since that seems to be the way most difficult things are. =P Oh well. I FOUND HIM! And he is ready for JUUUUUUUNE, wearing [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe, [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine, and my ohana family tree necklace. I AM SO HAPPY.



Now, am off to be full of knittiness (the moebius scarf is almost done! Mom is excited!), and take pics of some of the dolls that I am probably gonna sell. Dollie girls, nude Celsiy, Chicca, and possibly my obitsu'd Panda and my Haute NY (maybe with her glasses, even) are going up for sale probably on ShopADollic and the Pullips LJ sometime this weekend. I'm iffy on Panda and Haute NY because I really like them, but I have to prune this collection down to the ones I cannot stand to part with (namely Paja, Latte, Jupi, Frara, etc.) Plus, I need monies. *sigh* But Celsiy and Chicca for sure.

I wasn't gonna post today...

Mostly because I don't have anything of the slightest bit of interest to talk about -- I played office drone and did bitchwork in the lab, nothing very exciting. But it feels weird not to post, thanks to NaBloPoMo, so while I don't intend on doing it this month, I might just as well for all the good it's gonna do me. =P Also, since I have this domain laying dormant, I might move all my knitting/craft stuff there, but yanno...that requires a) techie people to help, b) ditto on graphics-y people, c) vastly more webspace, and d) slightly more gumption than I've got at this point. =P

So instead, I give you... MOEBIUS SCARF. Pee Ess: Who wants to be my sugar mama/daddy and get me these? *drools* Lordy, I looked at Addi Turbos at the store last weekend...well over $20 for a single circular needle? Not just no, HELL NO. *grin*

Wren's photog skills leave much to the imagination... )
