Hello, bbs! I realize I don't use this journal anymore...but because of the nonsense server migration, I have decided to abandon (I guess more than I already have) this journal and move over to dw. Same user name there...piratesquirrel at tumblr. Come find me if ya want. ❤️ u always! K

ETA: Unless this becomes a flaming trash pile, I probably won't delete is blog...I just wanted to transfer my journal over sooner rather than later.

Made it.

Both flights yesterday were incredibly turbulent. I only had to layover in St. Louis for about one hour, which was nice (as I told [livejournal.com profile] starsfell, it was just enough time to pee and check tumblr).

Upon arriving, I found out we weren't going straight home, but to catch up with Tays to see the film school's final projects which included a film written by her. We went to eat at a place called Garbanzo. I had to come out of the creeper closet and ask one of the employees if I could take a picture of his shirt (to send to Jay), because it said, "Shawarma. It only sounds funny the first 50 times you say it." Great food.

Then we went and watched the movies. It was a fun night, even though I was pretty beat. There were some stinkers and some really great ones. I though the team that did Taylor's did a fantastic job. The story is about a 13 year-old girl who is obsessed with her teacher. After each movie, there was a Q&A with the production team. Two of the three of them called her script melodramatic (to be fair, it sort of was). But it took everything I had not to jump out of my seat and and be all, "OH HELL NO." Tays was pretty copacetic with the whole thing. Her major feeling was how amazing it was to see something she'd written on screen. I'm sure most writers (especially film) feel that way.

Came home, gave hugs, crashed.

Today, we're going to have a sisters portrait made to surprise the parentals.
I am off to visit my family and see my youngest sister graduate from University of Denver, then whacky road trip to Las Vegas and Lake Havasu. Of course, I'm somewhat hesitant to leave [livejournal.com profile] starsfell alone without a babysitter, but I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] jane_says will show up soon. And there are plans to Loki me in some way...I guess I'm looking forward to that...?

Also, BENEDICT CUMBERBATCHIN FRANKENSTEIN. THERE AREN'T WORDS.

see ya later, doods!
[livejournal.com profile] starsfell asked the Bifrost Scouts to post our Avengers movie predictions here, and we'd all read them afterwards. I don't have much in the way of valid, canonical predictions, as I haven't really read many comics. But here goes:

ASSEMBLE! )
Well, hello eljay. Apparently, I haven't posted in a while. I have a feeling that has a lot to do with the fact that Tumblr is easy and I am lazy. Also, I don't really need a sounding board as I have my very own, live-in hobo, [livejournal.com profile] starsfell (who actually landed a job at the mouse...hooray!). IDEK...I guess I don't post much because everyday is the same.

Anyway, I'd say I'll try to post more, but I can't guarantee it. There will probably be a slight uptick of posting as my fellow Bifrost Scouts and I squee over The Avengers. Here, have some cuddles:

Happy New Year! I'm on my way to celebrate Christmas with my dad and his brood after working 11 days straight. My last day off was Christmas day. It has been so crazy this month...apparently since I haven't posted since Nov. 18. Everything's topsy-turvy at work and I have my very own, live-in [livejournal.com profile] starsfell. Don't be jelly, can't all be this awesome. Anyway, i'll thy to post more this weekend.

ALSO...WE KNOW YOU LIKE SHERLOCK AND STAR TREK SO WE PUT SHERLOCK IN YOUR STAR TREK SO YOU COULD SHERLOCK WHILE YOU STAR TREK.



There isn't a whole lot about Bonfire I haven't said before. But I will say, I can't believe it's 12 years gone. It still seems like yesterday.


Bonfire ‘99

Miranda, Chris B., Michael, Jeremy, Jamie, Chris H., Tim, Lucas, Bryan, Chad, Jerry, Nathan

We remember. As long as there are Aggies, you will never be forgotten.
I've been trying to make a post all night (since I haven't posted since 9/12), but it's just such a big chunk of time I couldn't find a starting place. Leave it to [livejournal.com profile] starsfell. Jay made me all misty, so I figured I should nut up and just start typing.

There's really not a whole lot that's been going on out of the norm. I go to work, I try to go to the gym, I eat, I sleep. Then, usually, Jay comes here and shenanigans ensue or I go to Tampa and there are similar shenanigans. There isn't a whole lot I'm fandoming about right now (except Tom Hiddleston's face), so that's another reason I haven't been posting.

I was going to make a huge photo post, including but not limited to WiWoHaPo last weekend (WE SAW LUCIUS MALFOY), Dragon*Con, things that I've been Tumbling, Tom Hiddleston's face and Halloween. BUT, I have to work for 12 hours tomorrow and I think I'll hold off until the weekend or the first of next week.

I have been lurking and reading, just not posting. I've been trying to make comments where I can. I Tumbl a lot more because it's easier and I can flail with people who like the same things I do. Also, both of my little sisters have a tumblr, and it's pretty cool to be able to be myself and realize that they like some of the same things I do. I'm piratesquirrel over there (my URL changed the first time my lj user name showed up on one of my sister's cross-posts to facebook). But, I'm going to try to update more here, even if it's just for me.

Something Jay just said bears repeating, I fucking love you guys.
I'M STILL ALIVE.

I have had an amazing birthday month so far. D*C, my actual birthday (with cake), and Marvel deciding it would be a great thing to sandwich my birthday between two DVD releases. And to top it all off, I just got this:



I HAD so much to do tonight.

Will make a proper update if I ever emerge from Pottermore.
So, I'm trying to leave for Atlanta (via Tampa) and my garbage disposal...breaks? Stops up? Whatever. I'm just going to let it sit until I get back and hopefully it doesn't smell like a swamp in here when I get back.

SEE YOU ALL THERE! :D
Apparently, I haven't posted in over a month. Oops. I've been reading (aka, CREEPIN') but posting more on tumblr. I'm piratesquirrel over there if you want to add me!

I'd been vacillating on Dragon*Con because I had a big car repair bill last weekend and am pretty busted. But, [livejournal.com profile] starsfell said, "Guuuurl," and I knew I didn't have much of a choice. I'll be frugal (EXECPT WHEN WE EAT ALL OF THE BBQ AFTER TUBING THE HOOCH) and have birthday fun and not care until next month's visa bill comes. Jay's pretty much in charge of this shenanigan, so we won't really be at the con the whole time. That being said, I know we'll be seeing [livejournal.com profile] blowdry and [livejournal.com profile] jane_says. Jay asked last night if we were going to see [livejournal.com profile] abigail89, and I was like, "Guuuurl (I can do it too), you bet we're going to see internet mom." If you're going and not one of those four people, let me know and we'll try to meet, but like I said, Jay's a bossy top.

I don't want to talk a lot about the last month, because it's been mostly me worrying about money and feeling kind of alone. But my sister and her best friend did visit and that was pretty rad.

Jay and Seb showed up last night for Seb's birthday and we went mini-golfing at Fantasia Gardens (I WORE MY KNICKERS) and had snacks at Ale House. Then they came to my house and passed out on the NCDC couch.

Now I'm watching The Weather Channel and lolling. I have to work tomorrow, so I guess I should get some laundry done.

Ma'am, I was perfectly content to stand behind you in line at the grocery store, even though I had $7 worth of groceries and you had $170. What irritated me is when you looked at me, said, "I feel so bad, you only have a few items," and then DIDN'T ASK ME TO GO IN FRONT OF YOU. I WOULD HAVE SAID, "NO THANK YOU," BY THE WAY.

BE A HUMAN BEING OR KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.

Gosh darn my manners, sometimes.
It's 2AM and I'm still awake and I think I feel like if I go to bed everything is over and gone tomorrow. IDK...watery grossness.
...that went well.

I really wasn't going to see DH2 tonight, but Jennie is leaving tomorrow and was going tonight, so I went ahead and got a ticket. I wanted to see her one last time. I wasn't prepared to say goodbye to her. Even though she broke my heart, she is still my friend. Her stupid friends sat between us. I really wanted to be next to her so I could cling appropriately. The end credits started and I just burst into tears because I hadn't dealt at all with her leaving. I think I held it together admirably.

Also, I laughed inappropriately (mostly at Bellatrix), I sobbed, I shouted DAT ASS maybe a little too loudly. It was a great finale, and I'm sad that he's gone, but...he's in our hearts.
...I just had a mini squeezure. Okay, so, this exists:



And what makes it amazing, is that Milo is voicing Wolverine. And Wolverine says, "It's been a while, huh?" AND I MAY HAVE SCREAMED. YES, YES IT HAS.

ALSO, NIKI, IF YOU EVER READ THIS, THAT MAKES ME TONY STARK AND YOU WOLVERINE. YOU ARE WELCOME.

PLEASE, LET THE SLASH AND CROSSOVERS BEGIN.

I WANT THIS ON MY TV RFN. HOW AM I GOING TO WAIT 16 DAYS?

Meh.

Regardless of length, this will be tl;dr. Feel free to move along.


I don't know what's going on with me right now. Except that almost everything in my life is changing right now. And I think that is what's causing my malaise. I'm honestly to a point where it's not that I don't have any fucks to give, I have NEGATIVE fucks to give. Things I normally care about, passionately, I just can't bring myself to even...I can't even finish the sentence, that's how little I care.

Unfortunately, I think most of this started because I was on vacation for two weeks. I had an amazing time, and it's always great to be part of a family unit. I didn't have to care about anything while gone, and I didn't. Upon my return, I immediately got sick. Awesome. I'm sure it is plane crud. I went back to work for one day, then Julie had her surgery and became my couch troll! Almost 10 days later, I'm still trying to recover.

In this time, I have switched from 4 tens to 5 eights at work. Don't get me wrong, I see this as a huge positive for my life. I've never really adjusted to the 4 day week, and an eight hour shift is just easier. This also gives me a set schedule and weekends off. And I am excited. Really. Or, I will be. But I just didn't get much done this week and if I don't start feeling better, next week will be bleak as well.

Also, my friend and ex-, Florida Jen, is about to become California Jen. She's transferring to the new bar at Disneyland Hotel, and while I'm really happy for her, it's just one more change. But, I feel like I should be upset that she's leaving or something, but I'm just not.

Mom was supposed to come for the launch today, but she decided not to come. I thought she might come in August, but she said not until October or November. While it's for the best that she's not here now, I wish she was coming soon (especially because I want to go to BJ's and stock my pantry).

Shuttle launch today...LAST SHUTTLE LAUNCH...didn't go. Didn't even step outside to see if I could see it. I was at a vendor meetup, did get lots of swag. (Although, I did have fun with Jay and her boy harem as they passed back through Orlando.)

Harry Potter...don't care.

IDK.

I've been doing really well with putting on a happy front, but I think even that is making me tired.

I'm going to help Jen move a couple of things to Keith's new place tomorrow, then I'm pulling up the drawbridge until work on Monday. I haven't really had the time to stop and catch my breath. Hopefully, the rest and personal time will set me right and I'll be squeeing with everyone next week.

Going to watch Fanboys now so I can give it back to Jen to pack.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KETTLE.

YOU GOT THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT ANYONE COULD THINK OF, AND I WAS GLAD TO HAVE CRABS AND BITCHES WITH YOU! ILU, NO MAUVE.
Julie just told me she feels like spaghetti. Not that she wants spaghetti to eat, but that she feels like a noodle. This should be fun.
[livejournal.com profile] starsfell is on her way home! And kharma punked me on her behalf. So I feel like we're even for the joke this morning. YAY! Can't wait to see how goofy she is!

Update.

[livejournal.com profile] starsfell is out of surgery. Everything went really well. The doctor told her dad that her knee looked like an NFL player's. I guess that means I don't get to use her bank passwords. Oh well. I'll update when I know more.
