I will post about RL later, but there's two things I have to put out there.

1) If you're going to use the most popular entertainment tag line OF ALL TIME, the two word version, on your icon...maybe make sure you spell both words right. I'm just sayin'.

2) And yes, I am doing this to incite a Julie!Riot!

Texas A&M University places a bid to house one of the retiring space shuttles.

Yes, my alma mater is better than yours.

I'm thinking that the Smithsonian trades in Enterprise for an upgrade, and A&M gets Enterprise. I like this plan.

Nobody tell Julie, but I bought the space dick shuttle cookie cutter when we were at KSC on Tuesday. And I made rice krispie treats. And I just might save her one for Saturday...if she's nice to me...

It was brought to my attention (last week) by [livejournal.com profile] abigail89 that I haven't been around the last month. SORRY.

First and foremost, I've been digesting my situation. I am okay most of the time. One of my friends' partner (a New Yorker who also happens to be a Corrections Officer) spoke really frankly to me about moving out sooner than I anticipated. She told me that I needed to be out of this house by Thanksgiving, because I needed to make new Christmas traditions. Since I was really struggling with the thought of spending Christmas here, that was something I really needed to hear. I'll be getting my storage unit next week, and sitting down with Alex, who's going to help me set my goals. Thank heaven for her.

Secondly, my mom and her friend Mary came to visit! We had a spectacular time. WE GOT TO SEE THE CRAWLER COMING DOWN THE HILL FROM PAD 39A GOING BACK TO THE VAB. I PROMISED JULIE PICTURES. I'll post them eventually. We hit Animal Kingdom and Epcot. It was so hot we really didn't get to do as much as I usually do with guests...but they had a great time, so I don't really care. Next time they come, I'll be in my new place!

Also went to Rochester for my goddaughter's second birthday. Had a great time, as well. It was nice just to be away and relax (even though a lot of the week wasn't really relaxing...).

Saw Shrek 4, Alice in Wonderland, and Toy Story 3. Fell asleep in the first two, bawled through the third. Oh, Andy.

[livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy is going to be here during Infinitus, so whether she wants to or not, she's taking me with her to meet the con folks, because I'm not missing the chance to hug [livejournal.com profile] abigail89 IRL.

IDK what else...I've been working a lot. Not working out a lot :(. I started a rewatch of The West Wing. OMGBBWHITEHOUSESTAFFERS.

My sisters will be here in July! \o/

SYTYCD...I'm finally caught up. I love that they got rid of the video wall. The lighting designer this year KILLS. I wasn't so sure about the All Stars. It does produce some great results...but we also don't have a lot of connection or awkward dances. I really don't have a favorite yet. The girls are so blah and the guys are so great. I got attached to Alex during Season 5, so I hope he continues to grow. And Kent is so fucking hilarious. I have a feeling he'll be a finalist, no matter how he does.

Okay, well, I'm working 27 hours this weekend, so I'll see you soon, bbs!
centerspire: ([ff] Once in flight school I was laconic)
I'm "happy" to report that I'm doing much better than my last post. I'm finally getting over my cold. I'm still exhausted emotionally, physically, and mentally.

Thank God for good friends with cool heads. I had lunch with Alex on Monday. She told me many, many things. All of which I needed to hear. Most especially, that it's not my fault. I went to KSC with [livejournal.com profile] starsfell on Tuesday, and she, of course, soothes my soul in a way I can't describe. [WHO SAYS BEING A GQMF DOESN'T HAVE IT'S PERKS?]

I'm now looking forward to living alone. Buying a ridiculous amount of home goods from IKEA. And many other things (not the least of which, running the dishwasher when I want).

I'm not looking forward to packing. Finding eight years of belongings in mingled places. Of finding an apartment. Of moving. Of being alone.

Yes, I know I'm not alone.

I'm still very upset. But not at having to move. I'm upset at losing my best friend, even though we still live in the same house.

I know I will be okay. I know a lot of things can happen in a year. It still doesn't really feel like it right now.
1) It appears I have posted nothing substantial (unless back porn counts) since about the third. Well, I'm not going to buck the trend today. There's a thing...a RL thing that's happening that could be very good, or could be very embarrassing. I'll let you know which as soon as I find out.

2) For what it's worth, today is the 20th anniversary of the last Challenger flight.

3) Seeing as I am a complete slacker, I forgot to wish [livejournal.com profile] cyneburg_leah a happy birthday, so I'll do it in all caps, because that's how much I love her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEY! I HOPE YOUR DAY WAS FILLED WITH RAINBOWS AND PUPPY DOGS!

4) Everyone keep an eye out for a naughty librarian job that [livejournal.com profile] morgaine22 hasn't already applied for. She's destined for those sexy glasses and shhhshing.

5) Did you hear that? That was the sound of fandom imploding. Well, BSG fandom. It'll be louder next week.

6) Speaking of whores, BSG 2.14, but not a lot of meta )

7) My little heart breaks for [livejournal.com profile] ingrid_m, for there was no Gaeta at all last night. Also, even more for [livejournal.com profile] lyssie (and myself) because there was no Kara.

ETA: 8) I will be on a mini-vacation starting tomorrow. Matt, Jen and I are going to see Wicked in Tampa, spending the night, going to International Plaza, and eating great chain food that for some reason seems better in Tampa. Monday-Wednesday I'll be vegging, with small chores/appointments in between. And ASL class starts up again on Wednesday night! Yea!

9) Also, I had to rebuild my closet, as the piece of crap that came with the house collapsed. But it's pretty rad now. Pictures later.
They scrubbed the launch. :( And it was clearing up, too. Wah.

T-Minus 3 hours til mom's plane and I have yet to clean anything. I guess I'll go make my bed at least.

centerspire: ([b] Oh....)
My mom will be here in 7 hours and I have done nothing in the way of cleaning. And I really have no motivation to do so. Maybe if I get up and go to the bank and the grocery...when I get back I'll be ready to go. Yeah, probably not.

ETA: Wicked excited about Discovery launch today...I just hope it clears up before launch or I'm not going to be able to see it from here.
