i hadded a kitty cat and i still does do!

i got ice cream and a pony and a kitty and a froggie and new legos and santa claus brought me a jack o' lantern full of big shiny things that go BUMP in the closet and i have teeth in my face.

i met president obama in my youtube dream.

jody has a crush on bobby and i think the whole planet is going to shit. why can't we all just get along and buy each other nice things? ps i want things. pps more things please.
i said please.


my brain came unbuttoned and ate chicago. no one will miss it.

then my brain got thirsty and went for a sno-cone. BRAIN FREEZE AAAAAAAAAAAGH.

for dessert i did some logarithms on rye with a derivative of lemon. it was a parallel experience.
i had to cosine for the remainder of the bill. it was only a fraction of the cost but i still went off on a tangent.

i was going to measure lauren's face but now it hurts.

oo ee oo ahhh ahhh ting tang walla walla bing bang. supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious!)


ORGANIC!

this gum smells delicious? may i have some?


my four fingers are your four fingers and my forefathers fingers were my four fingers.

carolyn is a lovely kitty. i aspire to be as lovely a kitty someday.

i just bought an OMG/LOL necklace. how old am i?



PEAS!

i intend to stay as switzerland as i possibly can.

amidst wild accusations, involvement of people very dear to me, threats and misunderstandings, i hold the claim (a not entirely unreasonable one) that i alone am responsible for my own thoughts and actions, and always will be.

i have a decent job, a home, a cat, medical bills and a wonderful mother to take care of.
i have the best friends a woman could ask for.
responsibility and maturity ripen with age and experience, and priority is often (hopefully) dictated similarly.
i made a choice which i do not regret.
what you make of your life, despite everything that is handed to you, is your choice.

and you thought the burger king was scary.

this is going to give me nightmares until i'm 80.



pointless cat macro update all for YOU!






also, i miss eva_prawn and modrnangel. like, a lot.

bitch betta have my money....

the word of the day, folks...

....is VERBATIMLY.

as in, just how accurately did they tell you?!


if i could make this stuff up i'd be rich by now.
reams of bills, i'm telling you.



of course, this only reminds me of the biggest gem in my work-related quote compilation to date:
"there are wasps coming in through a hole in my ceiling - have small children - have killed 8 of them so far."

*peeks*

taking a quick break from the formidable routine just to let you all know i haven't fallen off the big spinning rock just yet.

my gainful employment has me plugging away at mandatory overtime, not to mention my overwhelming urge to stay late anyway to attempt to help repair the ever-growing queue, and combined with the daily momventures and maybe(?) attempting to get in a little self-time it hasn't left me with a lot to say of late.

but i wanted to check in.
with a considerable amount of bleach tingling away at my scalp.
and a blueberry smoothie.

however short a visit, i'm greatly looking forward to modrnangel's 30th birthday extravaganza, which includes a nice mini-roadtrip. nothing quite relaxes me more than an open stretch of road and accompanying music, especially when the end destination is hugs from wonderful people.


i vow to be less boring in my next post, whenever that shall occur.




also - good luck to mylifeasfiction on your trip to arizona and subsequent education. i'll do my best to make it out there sometime (mass road trip? sleepinbeauty?? for the record, i'm not opposed to planes either.)

he tried.

i'm not feeling particularly eloquent these days, but i have to pay my respects to a favourite recently deceased author.

scottopic and modrnangel have pretty much covered the same bases i had in thought, so with all due credit and thanks - their statements.

d0m reminded that when in such a state, he lives forever in the past, and the view of Time is best seen as we can look upon the Rocky Mountains, not a linear string of beads. He's hit the eternity frequency, and if anything, he's more a part of us now and forever forward than when he was stuck in his frumpled stack of meat.

I could wax grandiloquent about Kurt Vonnegut's death but I won't. I'll leave it at this: I discovered him at the cusp of young adulthood and his novels changed my life. I wouldn't think what I think or say what I say without him.

You'll be sorely missed, especially now.



so it goes. RIP, kurt.

i won't guarantee anything

while there's much going on, i haven't felt the urge to update in some time now.

enjoy this, instead.

HELSINKI COMPLAINTS CHOIR
Finnish artists Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen collected the pet peeves and angst-ridden pleas of people in Helsinki and then composed this choral work around the list of complaints. Music composed by Esko Grundström.

KODO!

i was treated to a performance of the KODO drummers of japan last evening by shybrilliance, and i'm pretty sure i'm still re-adjusting my jaw.

taiko on recorded media just doesn't have the same sternum-pounding effect as the drums, particularly the o-daiko (which weighs approximately 800 lbs), are specifically designed to be played without amplification.

if you have a chance and enjoy drumming, precision and really feeling music in a physical manner, you owe it to yourself to go see them.
