But like I might just go and do it anyway. <BR> Apparently, it's going to be a lot of periods today. <BR> ... <BR> I am having a hard time processing things today..though really, it's just talking about important stuff when i haven't eaten. Mmmm...hangry. The rest of the day prior to that was great and not too shabby afterwards, either. <BR> I could even go be ...

Not my usual fair, but it is the catchiest thing EVAR and also...I like the words, dammit. haters gonna hate and I don't care. <BR> *boogies in chair* <BR> So shiny, so very very shiny. <BR> Thanks for giving me a song for this generally booty kickin summer. <BR> <em>212</em> <BR> Sincerely, <BR> me Sun, 25 Aug 2013 10:55:41 EST poker http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5465014 Kicked booty at poker last night. beginner's luck, I choose to say. Still a little hazy on the rules but a few more times and I should have it down. <BR> Pinched a nerve. My left hand is all numb and tingly and boo. Actually, i can feel it from neck down. But it should be fine with some gentle stretching and time. <BR> Went out to breakfast this morning and it was very good. <BR> Feeling really quite good. <BR> Now, to finish my book so i can start on the next GoT one. Sat, 24 Aug 2013 16:09:34 EST almost tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5462649 Long day. Wrappin up with cider, snacks, a little RP and FB and now for a tv show so my mind will slow down to the same speed my body is. <BR> Frelling exhausted and cannot wait to get out of the smoke. Today was a 12 hour day. By comparison, tomorrow is hella light duty. Woot woot! Thu, 22 Aug 2013 02:23:08 EST productive http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5462247 So! I got the kid registered, my various and sundry things I need for camping, grocery shopping AND I made not one, but TWO different styles of legwarmery things without patterns. All with enough time to watch the heroes of cosplay and have a bite of lunch before i go and remove a bunch of hairs off of other people. <BR> *high five* <BR> <BR> Twinkly eyes and everything, betches. Wed, 21 Aug 2013 17:47:57 EST HA! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5460999 I just smile and smile and smile. <BR> I apologize for giving the impression I was upset about something I figured out ages ago. But every so often i have to prod the situation so i can get a reaction of sorts. <BR> My education comes to me whether you want it to or not. Slowly, awkwardly, through the crazy. <BR> Thanks for the confirmation, kids. <BR> See you on the otherside. <BR> <em>212</em> <BR> <BR> For now, a long day of being fracking amazing. Tue, 20 Aug 2013 12:32:50 EST twinkly http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5460262 So, intrepid readers, today i made a BIG desicion that will probably have all sorts of unpredicted fallout. And I simply don't care. I want to, so I'm gonna. And be the most pleasant I possibly can be, because that is generally my nature. <BR> But HOLYCRAPTHIS ISHAPPENINGWHAAAAAAAAT?! <BR> Now for sewing, more beer, cause...beer, and all sorts of last minute preparations. <BR> Oh and I am going camping on Friday night.

I will feel much better with significantly less stuff. But it is very hard to get rid of things. It hurts me and my packrat nature. However, I made the decision to pare it down to as few things as I can and, by George, I am going to do it. <BR> I am doing it, right now(ish). <BR> Also, acquired a bandana today for the desert that matches the fabulous glass case my sis got me the other day.

Also, a WHOLE week out of my house sounds about fabulous. Then it will be the long trip north, which I am even more excited about. <BR> This morning, I wondered why my shoulders and arms were so frelling sore. Then after many hours I remembered the day before yesterday, I did a series of exercises with my dumbbells. Unimportant mystery solved! <BR> The pile of stuff for the yard sale looks so big inside, it'...

Physical, tangible things, to be specific. <BR> making an effort to be productive and creative every day. <BR> Struggling a little with my vice, but I am doing well overall combating that.

Fri, 17 May 2013 13:33:13 EST Hulloo, sweetie http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5355858 Fancy meeting you here! <BR> Not that i hadn't noticed before, but the crazy was making it hard to do anything but feel trolled. See, i don't say anything because I still feel a little baited. Though I am also a little flattered with the amount of effort that was put into stalking me. Ah, sweet vanity. I choose to enjoy it this year. Really, you could just say something directly to me, good or bad. But if you'd rather not, you are welcome to sit and watch. Enjoy the show! <em>103</em> ...

Actually got to sit and focus on making a new thing, completely out of my brain. I had started it ages ago then lost my needles. But Mr. Manchu, the rasta duck was made. I was encouraged to make more of that type of thing and sell them, by someone I really didn't know. <BR> I also willingly hung out with people i don't know very well. It was a good time. As frequently ends up happening, I ended up chatting about geeky gamer stuff in the corner. LOL <BR> Yester... Fri, 10 May 2013 18:14:42 EST
