Subject:Good Reads
Time:9:00 am.
After many years of many suggestions, I'm finally on GoodReads.com. Enjoying the crap out of it. I still have much work, but building my shelves and collections is so much fun!

Find me and friend me!

Subject:Introducing The Cosmospolitans!
Time:12:52 pm.
The first segment of the toon I've been doing voice work for is now launched! Note- my main character is not yet introduced in this first segment; she's the cutie in the green dress shown on the left hand side of screen. I do, however, have a bit role in the featured new segment (which is a Star Trek Parody).

Subject:Whoah
Time:12:14 am.
Mood: calm.
I finally caught up and finished BSG and I have very mixed feelings over the ending.
I am so very glad I watched it alone.
The Anders story-line has been hitting close to home. Tonight it hit so hard and made me cry so violently that I almost puked. When I finally calmed down, a different story-line started the waterworks again. I guess I was overdue for a good cathartic cry. Holy Moly. I do feel cleansed. I'm going to sleep well tonight! Nite, nite. *thunk*

Subject:I must be doing something right!
Time:8:08 am.
Mood: accomplished.
Every winter, I seem to get so run down by work that I get really, really sick (sometimes to the point of doctor mandated bed-rest).
I somehow managed to get though this winter with only minor colds.
This is amazing me because this year work has been crazier than ever.

I account this to-
-listening to my body telling me how exhausted it was and sleeping through the few days off I have gotten (since November till a couple weeks ago, I was lucky if I was getting 2 days off a month). This has torn me because I badly neglected house chores, but something had to give.
-forcing myself to cook GOOD healthy meals no matter how tired I was. Again, this was a hard choice, because cooking added to the neglected chores. Until this past weekend, my kitchen was so bad, the worst I've ever seen it! Now it looks so pretty and worthy of producing the yummy healthy stuff!
-forcing myself to do regular yoga practice. Again, sometimes just way too exhausted, but ironing out the kinks in my body at least several times a week (if not daily) seemed to help keep my body and mind from going to shit!

Yay for not getting sick and mostly taking care of myself! Now that I have time to take care of household chores, too, there's no stopping me! Tee hee!

Subject:Feeling a bit better
Time:9:45 am.
Mood: calm.
The last few weeks have been horribly stressful (for a variety of reasons), I just hit a snapping point last night.
Needed to vent.
I'm ok.
Thanks for the comments, emails, etc.
I have the best friends ever, I swear!


On the happy side-
-I'm actually getting days off now, so I'm able to get this filth hole cleaned up- yay! I ALMOST have my kitchen tamed. I'm working very long days, but I'm getting 2 days off a week!
-Had an amazing Friday night. Spent quality time w/ Jessicka and Veronica. We hung w/ Sandra, Tomas, Dan, Tony, and one of my fave bartenders at Rock This Town. Then we went to Black Friday and got funky on the dance floor w/ Wyatt who is the best dancer ever.
-My grandma and uncle are coming out next month and I'm very excited!
-Got to do more voice work this week, and that is always a blast! Did a character that is totally different from my usual character. This was challenging, but fun. I could not speak the next day. LOL
-OH, and last, but not least, if you have not heard- On Valentine's Day, Tim *informed* me that we are getting married. ;-P I'm thinking red or purple for the dress. I <3 Tim. Hee hee.
-There is actually tons more happy stuff, but I need to drag my butt to work.
Love you all, even you.

Subject:hell is for nice people
Time:11:37 pm.
Mood: sad.
I'm becoming very close to no longer being a nice person. It feels like every thing I've done over the past few weeks where I've tried to do what is "right" and "good" has come back to bite me in the ass in one fashion or another. Please don't ask me if this is about you. I will not confirm nor deny. When it comes down to it, this is not really about *you* or making you feel bad; this is about me thinking out loud and not wanting to repeat the same mistakes. Nothing else. Move along, nothing to see here.
I'm going to go drown my sorrows in hot chocolate- with marshmallows, motherfuckers!

I think anyone would find this funny. I find it extraordinarily hilarious!
If you had ever heard my tales of teenagehood opossum encounters you will get just why I find this so damn amusing. If you have not heard these tales, please be sure to ask next time I see you in person.

Subject:Deep funk, deep connections
Time:12:38 pm.
Mood: grateful.
I have been quiet lately, because I've been in a deep funk.
Due to particular situations at work, my heart was smashed into a thousand pieces and I had some serious mourning to do. So many mixed emotions- heartbreak, rage, deep sadness, betrayed, relief, overwhelmed.
Most of my plans got wreaked in the storm (as we are now even more short staffed than we already were), but I managed to have a very happy Yule/Soltice. I did something similar to my Samhaim- total nesting, self care, and setting the stage for wonderful things to come. It was glorious.
I worked on Xmas, but after work, I had some amazing connections with family and friends. Some of the most amazing conversations and bonding moments with key players in my life were shared (even if it was "just over the phone"). I swear I'm the most loved girl in the universe sometimes. Even in a deep funk, I think of all the love in my life and my heart can't help but swell. I feel so very, very lucky. Thank you for being in my life!

Subject:PSA- Serious Hair Dye Allergies CAN happen!!!!
Time:2:09 pm.
Mood: thankful.
Home hair dye kits are very popular and commonly used. So is ignoring the allergy warnings and skipping the allergy tests the companies almost beg you to use. I imploring everyone to learn from my mistake and do the allergy test! Please share this with anyone you think can benefit from it. I did not think this could happen to me and it did. If sharing this publicly can spare just one person the pain and terror I went through, it will be worth any temporary embarrassment I might have at letting you see me so very ugly and hideous. Think the allergy tests are a waste of time? Think the allergy warnings are just legal mumbo jumbo? THINK AGAIN.
I have put a cut on this entry to spare those who rather not see the pics (some of you have made it clear that you DON'T want to see them)

Subject:Week in review
Time:12:40 pm.
Mood: loved.
Despite work being crazy insane, this was a lovely week.
I just finished up a 12 day in row marathon, now I'm enjoying 2 days off (w00t!) (OFF meaning out of the stores, still have some admin work to do at home- bleh)

However, despite the work insanity- this was an awesome, awesome week. Have I ever told you what a lucky girl I am? I have some of the best people in my life- SERIOUSLY. I got emails, ims, phone calls and xmas cards that put shit eating grins on my face. I was able to squeak in some quality friend time as well.
This week I felt SO LOVED!!!!!

Sunday- Movie and eats w/ Fanboy.

Monday- OMG-Amanda Palmer! The openers were great and she was amazing. The crowd was cuteness overload. It should be against the law to have so many cute people in the same place. DROOL. I got to socialize with one of the most adorable boys there and THANK GOD he was married! Cause him not being available to me makes my sticking to my dating hiatus thing all that much easier. LOL (I have had some *amazing* temptations, but he would have been even more difficult than saying no has already been for some reason). Got a ride home from the ever fabulous Becka (thank you dear!!!)

Tuesday- Tea and bagels in the morning with Jasper. Weekly dinner/hang out w/ Murias- watched Spaced and it was good.

Weds- Got my ass dragged to BAGG by Jasmine. I have not been in over 2 years and was very glad to have gone. Got to spend at least a little time w/ Starr (thanks for the drink!), Tony, Ronni and Nettie, Scott, Shatter, and Stephan in addition to having a blast w/ Jasmine. Danced my ass off. Good times!

Thurs- Spent a quiet evening at home and fell asleep during the movie I was attempting to watch. Meh.

Fri-Had been looking forward to Rock This Town and was planning on going. Work was super stressful and I was just too damn exhausted. I'm bummed cause I really, really wanted to go. :-(
Mercedes stopped by and we had a quiet evening of ciders, tea, soup, potstickers and Amanda Palmer/Dresden Dolls videos and GOOD conversations. YAY!

I have had no time to read journals this week. So, please let me know if there is anything major going on with you by replying below. I'm happy to go back and read individual journals if I know there is something important going on in your life. I just don't have time to go back pages and pages and pages on my friends' page.

Subject:A day of favorites
Time:9:29 pm.
Mood: happy.
After work, I went to one of my favorite places in the world- the library! Cause I''m a nerd like that.

Then came home and chatted up one of my favorite girls in the world, Jessicka, and caught up. Then plotted me getting some of my favorites wines in the world that she picked up for me from one of my favorite wineries.

Then Fanboy, one of my favorite boys in the world, came over bearing one of my favorites soups. We heated soups and made a platter of some of my other favorite foods. Yum yum.
Then Fanboy introduced me to one of his favorite movies, Thirteen Days, while we made our selves comfy on piles of pillows, bean bags, etc.
Snuggling with favorite kitties commenced.
Had nibbles of one my favorite chocolates.

Life is good.

PS- Thirteen Days is beyond amazing, BTW.

Subject:Dinner before Amanda Palmer?

I have my ticket for Amanda Palmer on Monday!
I have a work schedule that cooperates for attending the show!

Would anyone like to hook up for dinner before the show?

I'm getting so excited! Yay!

Subject:Emotional Whore
Time:7:54 am.
Mood: dorky.
All day yesterday, I kept saying to myself- "One week ago today..." Has it really been a week? It feels like a long time ago now. I am feeling so much better. Still tired, but I'm also working like a dog. The only "evidence" on my face is dark, tired, wrinkled circles under my eyes. Otherwise, I have my face back!
___________________________________________________________

Speaking of yesterday, I felt like a schitzo. Totally extreme ups and downs. There were moments of extraordinarily epic "FAIL!" to be followed by terrifically triumphant moments of "YAY!". All day was like this. Moments where I wanted to scream in frustration to be followed by something equally fantastic that made me want to squeal with giddiness. While it's good to have days that are not all suckiness, it is draining to have so many emotions tapped into at once.
When I got home, I decided to let off some steam by jumping around to my favorite "angry chick" band. If anyone was in the back yard last night, they got quite a show.
Picture if you will- me in a new short lavender fluffy (and oh so soft!) striped robe, fuchsia and black striped knee highs (left on from the day's outfit), pink sequined asian slippers, black curls flying everywhere, singing at the top of my lungs-
"Is it a crime to want to be happy in a sick, sick world
I'm a sick, sick girl
And if you need an emotional score
Then I will be your emotional whore
And when I spit you out at last
You'll understand, try to understand !!!!!!!!!"

God, I amuse myself sometimes.

Subject:a magical day........................
Time:12:14 am.
Mood: contemplative.
Today was nothing short of magical. I felt like a sorceress weaving spells wherever I went.
I embodied and embraced all of the feminine archetypes today.
I played every role to perfection.
More days should be like today.

_________________________________________________________

Consequently, I finished Anais Nin's " A Spy in the House of Love" tonight.
An author must be doing something right when you despise, love, relate to, and yet have no sympathy for, the main character. I loved and hated this book at the same time. It touched me in many ways I have yet to discover. Though I've had elements of Sabina in me, I will never allow myself to be her.

_________________________________________________________

I settled down to a yummy dinner and one of my favorite sappy movies. I needed a good cry and this movie never fails. Oddly, I feel that if the few dear-hearts that are concerned about me on a certain level knew this movie, then, maybe just then, they might be able to relate to me a bit better. And then they would know that I'll be ok. Yes, I'm being purposely vague. ;-P

_____________________________________________________________

Yes, more days should be like today.

Subject:Sleepy Random Rambles
Time:2:27 am.
Mood: calm.
I seem to be suffering again from Predisone inspired insomnia. Thankfully, I only have another dose or 2 to take before I can kiss the stuff goodbye. Not sure which is worse- the struggles to fall asleep or the crazy ass vividly morbid dreams I've been having once I do fall asleep. Just don't ask, trust me.

Instead of tossing and turning, I decided to make some chamomile tea and hash out some recent random ramblings.

In no particular order-

- The day I called in sick was the day Timothy Hutton entered my store. Damn!

-Today, while realizing one of the few good fresh foods I left in my house was a head of cabbage, i started jonesing big time for a Hungarian cabbage noodle dish that I have not made in YEARS. Then I realized that I once again misremembered how some of the condiments got split up during the break up. I was missing a CRITICAL ingredient. Finally decided to drag my ass to the store to collect said ingredient. Decided to consult cookbook first to make sure there where no other missing ingredients. I could find every single cookbook I own except the one I needed. Yeah, could have consulted google for a different recipe, but it would not have done. Yes, I was in one of *those* moods. I WANT MY STUPID NOODLES!

- Finally signed up on lastfm.
Still trying to figure it all out.
Friend me!
http://www.last.fm/user/Leggylady

-Still resisting Facebook.

-Speaking of music, the strangest songs have been resinating with me lately. Strange to see what I'm connecting with and why. This is leading to some very provoking soul searches.

-Finally took out garbage and recycle today. EEEEEWWW I had so much piled near the back door that it would have impressed Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout!!!!! Can we say YUCK!?!?!? At least mine was all in bags...hee hee!

-Been making some pretty powerful decisions for myself lately..and sticking to my guns on them! This has been incredible.

-I'm hoping Mervyn's still has the boots I spied last week. They would be really kick ass with my new dress. They had 3 pairs left in my size, so I'm hoping!

-I can't wait till I'm up to working out again. I really do miss it!!! It's like an addiction to me....and one of the few things I do "just for me".

Ok, tea is in tummy and I'm feeling nice and warm. Going to cozy up to Anais Nin till I pass out (reading "A Spy in the House of Love") .

Subject:A super quick update
Time:5:24 pm.
Mood: content.
I went back to work yesterday. Every moment a bit better. Still tire easily, but definitely on the mend. I do look like me again (hooray!), just a sick, slightly chubbier in cheeks, wrinkled version of me. I'll be happy when my face is finally done shifting. My voice comes and goes- my asthma was intensified by all the trauma, so my throat and lungs are a bit wreaked.

I have decided not to go out at all this week, just going to lay low and heal. My apologies again for breaking any plans, but I really need to take care of me right now. If anyone wants to come over for a quiet viewing of something and/or *cheap* takeout stuffs, that might be cool.

If I feel *super* by the weekend, may sneak out for an early night on Fri or Sat. But I won't know till I'm there. Just taking it day by day right now.
I'm still catching up on on emails, phone calls and stuff, so please be patient!
I'm also working on my PSA- photos and all. One of my coworkers and I started getting teary today when I showed her the photos. I still feel very lucky to be here. Still fighting depression (that I know is normal with knowing that you almost died) while trying to focus on the positive- that I did get to the hospital in time and I'M ALIVE! :-)
