I experienced my first (and subsequent second) game of 'Pange Pong. It's like Beer Pong, only with champagne. ^^;; THE BUBBLES. ZOMG. After downing about a 3/4 of a bottle a piece, A., [livejournal.com profile] isolabela, and I went down to see their college improv group. SO FUNNY. Even better when totally buzzed, let me tell you. =P

Train ride was slightly maddening on the way down to T-Town. For some reason, crossing things kept malfunctioning and crap was on the tracks, and we had to slow down and stop for about 30 minutes in total. Bah. I was so exhausted from not sleeping the night before (I'm hoping this isn't s a new thing I'm adding to my repertoire, as I did the same thing in December. ><) but still managed to keep awake, and mostly coherent (although the booze prolly didn't help that one =p) until midnight. YAY.

So am waiting for the twin to get home from work, and we shall walk over to get teriyaki (yayayay!) and then settle in for some serious slug-like behavior. Wifey! *pokes you* We be calling you. Have already talked about how much we love you. IT IS ALL GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN! <3

*type typetypetypetype typetype type type type typetypetype* <<-- is what I'm getting accomplished today, HEEEEEE *flops* HEEEEE!

SO EXCITED FOR TOMORROW. [livejournal.com profile] isolabela, T-TOWN, THE TWINS TOGETHER! HEEE! Only one person could make this trip even AWESOMER THAN IT ALREADY IS, and someday, wifey o' mine, our Trifecta of Awesome will be all together. ♥♥♥ I am so packing and repacking. (There WILL be Zebra Cakes, correct? *gigglefit*)

There's a ton of comments I need to comment back to, but it's Wednesday, I've got two more eps of CM left to watch, and I'M TIRED. =P (And hungry. SOMEBODY FEEEED ME.)

The day after tomorrow, [livejournal.com profile] isolabela! HEEE!!!
K: That sucks.
Wren: SO DOES YOUR MOM. ZING!

J: *to retainer wire* Argh, you suck.
Wren: *mock offended* I beg your pardon?!
J: I know you do. K's mom told me.
Wren: Wow, his mom really gets around.

Why do your mom comments NEVER STOP BEING FUNNY?

Also, my beloved f-list has been having some shit, a lot of it. This new year has barely started, but it's been sucking like a two-dollar hooker. Here, have a song, it totally makes me think of all of us. <333

The Weepies - Not Your Year

Your life feels like the morning after all year long )
So it took me close to a year of resisting but...*sigh* Hello, my name is Wren. And I love Criminal Minds. *grin* Have had the first three dvds of season 1 for a couple of weeks, and didn't break into it until yesterday in a fit of self-pitying ennui. OMG. ><;; I so love it. DAMN YOU, WIFEY. *shakes fist*

*curls up with moar dvds nao* My stomach is sick like woah. Again. PERFECT EXCUSE.

RIP Kim Manners ;_;

I had weird dreams about my mom breaking everything I own. And then I wake up to find SNOW ALL OVER THE PLACE. And it's SNOWING MORE NOW. -_- *flails*
Despite only have two buttery nipple shots last night, I woke up feeling all headachey and kinda grumpy. ^^;; This is why I rarely drink the hard stuff, guys, I just have no tolerance. ^^;; *is a wimp* Hung out with my cousin and his friend last night at the party, and it was really fun, but was so exhausted so cut the night short around 11pm and we headed to our respective homes. I had truly bizarre dreams including one where I spent the whole time yelling at a co-worker who was pissing me off, and Obama (yeah, that one was BIZARRE O.o [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and I were at a White House press conference that went awry.) The night before, I had dreams about angrily sorting yarn whilst yelling. I think my brain is a strange, strange place. So needless to say, today might be a stay in pjs and be lazy sort of day. I have things to write and plot, and a striped Noro Silk Garden scarf to knit to the exclusion of all other knitting projects (read: the Shawl of Doom and more fingerless cuffs for belated xmas gifts. Oops? I agree with my knitting goddess, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, that a scarf that is 1x1 ribbing and two row stripes should not even be at all this entertaining. But really? It so is. My fingers itch to knit it everytime they aren't preoccupied with typing...and even sometimes when they are. It does not make sense. Or, rather, maybe it does. Because the dye job on these yarns are SO LOVELY that it is immensely fun to watch as the colors shift with every row. *sigh* I also understand that this sounds a little...odd. Please, bare with me. This just means that this might someday be around the neck of one of you. Knitting loves company. ^_~)

Had to cancel one train ticket and order a new one, but my plan to take over WA with the twin, [livejournal.com profile] isolabela, continues strong even after minor setbacks. Fear. Us.

Just as an aside, please go over to [livejournal.com profile] foolsnotion and tell her how absolutely fabulous she is for offering and executing an adorable piece of art of my surly, but much loved, OC Lenore. It just makes me happy, yo. ^_________________^
Am hijacking my friend's laptop to make this post. Her bday party is today, and we're gonna rawk it up at the bowling alley. =P


FRIDAY!! HEEEEEEE *thud*

I spent the day in the utter throes of creative jitteryness. I am so wired now, I can't hardly concentrate - which was lovely for work. It felt like it would never. freaking. end. But seriously, it's all I want to do tonight, is be creative and bug the wifey about it. *flops* It just...makes me happy - SO HAPPY - to have that back again. After so many freaking years of blah. <3
Still office drone, though I am FINALLY almost finished with checking July invoices, which means (I think. I THINK.) that I am almost done with my 4 month long game of doing-the-job-someone-else-should've-done-daily-which-would-only-take-about-20-minutes-anyway-and-really-it-was-part-of-your-job-ANYWAY-but-you-were-too-busy-trying-to-leave-before-lunch. -_- Bitter? Me? Why would you think that? O.O

I yelled at my mom today. A couple of times. I'm not proud of this, but damn...I love her? BUT SHE REALLY KINDA DRIVES ME NUTS FROM TIME TO TIME. ^^;; This cranky/tired bullshit is making me especially touchy, and when she talks in the morning? I sorta just wanna be all, "You're talking again. Could you like...not? Freals." It is totally my fault and completely me being a cranky baby, but man... ^^;; Somedays, not worth getting out of bed.
I didn't get to watch President Obama's speech, but I got to listen to it on the radio, and found myself both a little teary and very often nodding in agreement along with what he said. This country is in the crapper right now, and people think that he's got too many lofty goals than can possibly be reached. But what other sort of goals should you have? Should you just cross your fingers and try to the meet the status quo, or should you reach for the stars, even if you miss sometimes? Promises will be broken, and hard decisions will be made, and I know that I won't agree with everything that his administration will do, but I do know this: he inspires us to do better, to reach for more, to work together towards greatness. Lofty and many, maybe, but hope is never a bad thing. He had my vote. He had my vote for more than just being against his opponent. He had it for inspiring, and for making me proud to be who I was, proud of where I was born, proud to dig my heels in and give back and work hard to make this place great again. Times are tough, but I think we can do it. Together.

and now for the not so positive parts of my day =P )

Smoochies and tons of love go out to [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine: I LOVE YOU. Ohana. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ x A Million

ps: Thankies to a certain [livejournal.com profile] mariamme for the gorgeous copy of ATGIB. <333

I am too tired to function. That is all.

I'm bored. It's a Sunday. My brain is sorta dead, so thinking hard isn't a good thing. My knitting needles are too long to use while I'm sitting in this chair (they hit the armrests.) Yes, I am too lazy to move. I have Emilie Autumn on iTunes, mah wifey on the instant messanger, and the view of sun dappled evergreens outside my window. Time to share some of my favorite things with my favorite, beloved f-list...

onward to the links! )

You may now return to your regularly scheduled lives <333

I always feel like cleaning my room is like an elaborate cup game: remove the contents of one box only to refill it with the contents of three other boxes, round and round we go, pick which cup the pea is under... *flops* While there still isn't any more room in my closet, there are three or so boxes that are ready to be sent off to my storage unit, along with my bedstand and mattresses. I am on the floor now, on a twin sized mattress. *sigh* At least there's more room. I guess. The only thing coming back in my room is my yarn chest, and really, that's the important thing right there. Considering how useless my father is being, I don't know if my bed will be moved to my unit tomorrow with the rest of the stuff or not. It'd be nice to not have my mattress just sitting there, leaning against my wall, mocking me. But, I suppose, that's too much to ask. Since there's more room to groove now, though, I can finally move my cd rack to the other side of the wall and not feel like everything is closing in on my computer desk. Seriously, this room is so small, I'm mostly claustrophic sitting in here. HAVE I MENTIONED THAT I MISS MY APARTMENT? *sniffle*

Still working on pixels for those that requested. Might take another day or so until I can get back to them, but they're on my list. <333

Finally posted some Re-Ment that I've been meaning to sell/trade up at the new forum. Next, I need to get rid of my vintage (HA!) first generation My Little Pony stuff (sadly, I think I sold all my ponies in a fit of "I'm too OLD for this stuff", along with all my She-Ra dolls, and other cool stuff from the 80s/90s. I SO REGRET *sobs*) and my Aladdin movie Barbie clothes sets.

Huzzah, finally the weekend! Am already cuddled in my pjs and have lots of dvds and books and knitting to catch up on. This weekend is for getting my stupid room rearranged so it will stop driving me crazy. ^^;; Hopefully. Which, also, will hopefully be the biggest change for this month.

Things overheard in the lab today (aka: Possibly proof that we inhale too much acrylic fumes than is healthy)

S: ...YOUR MOM.
Wren: COOL IT WITH THE 'YOUR MOM'!
S: NEVAR!

M: *mumblemumble*...summer *mumble*
K: Oooo, who's SUMMER!?
M: It's the nickname I have for YOUR MOM.
Wren: You know, you almost have to be like, WELL DONE, for that one.

Sometimes, you just have to stand back and admit that you and your co-workers are a bunch of fucking idiots, BUT IN A GOOD WAY. *grin* All these conversations lose something in the translation, but believe me, SO FUNNY. =P
I'm gonna try to get off the whole "but I am le tired" kick I've been on recently. (Even though I'm TOTALLY still exhausted. But you didn't hear that from me *shifty eyes*)

For all y'all out there who like to take pics/know a thing or two about digital cameras, might I bend your ears a bit? I recently ran my computer chair into the Pullips bookshelf, where my cam was sitting. It sadly fell onto the floor (the part not covered by a rug >< of course) and the damn thing BROKE. *sigh* So I am without camera once more. I have no idea where to start looking for a new one. It was a Canon Powershot A560, and while it was a decent enough sort, I could never get it steady enough to take a non-blurry picture. Even in natural lighting on a stand. I swear it could feel the earth's rotation. ><;; Something under $200 with a motion stabilizer would be lovely, and compactish. Anyone? Bueller? I'm not looking for anything grand - I'm not trying to take pictures for National Geographic - but something that isn't gonna blur if I breathe on it too hard, and has relatively clear, non-noisy image result. Please and thank you. ♥

Work drama was almost non-existant today. HUZZAH! [orthodontic babble] I still rock the zebra stripes, even when I'm headachey and sickly - finally, I'M the best at something. I love when my manager takes care of the twin blocks that she springs on us at noon or later, THAT HAVE TO GO OUT THAT DAY WITH THE REST OF THE DELIVERIES. Especially when they have grind-ins. [/end orthodontic babble] Got stuck doing invoices again today, which I guess wasn't horrible, except for the little fact that I still haven't managed to finish checking shit from August and July, and then learning that the end of November and ALL of December have yet to be checked as well. People. This isn't my job. I do it to help out from time to time. Please not to be leaving all of it for me -- I already do my own work and then some. ><;;
WORK DRAMA. Bah, it didn't involve me, but there was much screaming and sending home of a co-worker and O.o!! Tomorrow should be...interesting to deal with. ><;; Not looking forward to it.

Still exhausted, even though I went to sleep before 9pm last night. I really do think I might be trying to fight off some sort of cold. >< Woke up blazingly hot at midnight, and actually had to turn my fan on. Had weird, bizarre dreams, although not as scary as the Criminal Minds dream I had a few nights ago that I cannot for the life of me remember, other than it was FREAKISHLY TERRIFYING. Brain, wth? I get a dream with hot mens in it, and instead of anything fun, I wake up with dread and pounding heart. For shame, brain, for shame. *shakes head*

Might be another early night. Finally started The Changling Sea from [livejournal.com profile] lildemented and LOVE IT SO. The muse loves it as well, so that makes for a happy brain all around (cept for the yelling and screaming portion of today's work day. That sorta harshed my literary buzz. Jerks.)
Definitely have a case of the Mondays. But, instead of describing the inexplicable dread that I felt today, am gonna report on better things:

~ thanks to [livejournal.com profile] mariamme, I've been searching for my copy of A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. Unfortunately, I think it's still in my storage unit. ><;;

~ I actually posted something I wrote, and despite three people having to talk me down from the ledge, it's gotten a fairly decent reception. Hells yeah for getting over a fear. Sorta. =P

~ There is a plan in the works for getting this stupid room in order. Smaller furniture, rearranged, etc. Taking a lot of stuff back to my unit to hibernate until I have a place of my own once more. I miss my apartment. *sigh*

~ Have lots of comments to catch up on, but OH so exhausted and blah, so will be hanging around long enough to get some stuff done, and then it's off to be a slug. Might impose a (mostly) internet free day tomorrow, just so I can fight off this thing that I fear might become a cold. *eyes sore throat*

...that is all ♥

Just a quick post before I forget! Wandering around, trying to get my room in order as it's currently driving me nuts, and I just don't need any external forces helping with that. Best news ever though!! Bought plane tickets to go see [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine for the beginning of June. SO. FAR. AWAY! *cries* But it gives me much to look forward to, even if it's totally not soon enough! HEEEEE! *tackles*

*sigh* Cleaning calls. *flails* SEND HELP.
