Okay, separate post because I didn't want all of this personal stuff jammed in with my PLEA FOR HELP (for srs guys...CANCER KILLS and even guys can get breast cancer. LET'S FIGHT THIS FIEND!)

FIRST OFF~ To everyone who commented on my last WOEFUL POST OF WOE which involved LAMENTING MY LACKING LOVE LIFE:

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME


Thank you so much for giving me thoughtful advice and for caring ♥ My view on marriage is disgustingly skewered because, for the longest part of my life, the only married couples I knew who had stayed together for any sizable amount of time had all married RIDICULOUSLY YOUNG (all married between the ages of 15 and 19, if I remember correctly) or RIDICULOUSLY QUICKLY (met and married in six weeks and they didn't even speak a common language!!!!!) and so I tend to still think that's the only way marriage works sometimes, especially late at night when I'm tired and paranoid. So thanks for being so wonderful to me guys.

Second piece of news: I AM QUITTING MY JOB AT THE SCHOOL! (yay me!)

I am going back to Party City for three months-ish to help with the Halloween season. Not super thrilled about having to do that, but at least I'll be going back during my favorite time of year. I'm hoping by Halloween my hair will be long enough for me to do shit with it so my hairstyle can match whatever costume I end up wearing. I am really regretting donating my collection though. I took everything to Goodwill a few weeks ago, figuring I'd never need so many costumes again. Now I'm going to have to buy at least two more (crossing my fingers that my taxi costume will be usable again this year). Oh well, I like costume shopping.

Grandmother's coming this weekend. It's all really impromptu. So you know I'm looking forward to being told I'm a shit daughter for daring to get an education instead of just settling down with a rich man and popping out babies. Because, you know, my sole purpose in life is to re-enact Cinderella's life before her fairy godmother intervened.

Ugh.

Mom's paying for my truck's insurance next month since I shelled out for the new version of MS Office, so I'm taking my paycheck tomorrow and buying some yarn for Rob's scarf. Still can't decide what stitch I'm going to use for it, I'll have to see what yarn I like and then just pick whatever stitch will suit the yarn I guess. Usually when I make a scarf I just pick a stitch at random, but I've never made anything for a guy and I'm pretty damn sure he doesn't want wee little popcorns or any shells or anything. I'm leaning towards ribbing done with a single crochet using three different colors, but I'll have to see.

Crap, just realized I'm going to have to get my hooker boots' heels re-enforced if they're going to last another year working. Guess I have to find a...um, cobbler? Idk. SHOE REPAIRMAN.

I'm going to sell my BtSSB Angel Grosgrain jsk even though I love the print. I really don't like wearing all pink, and especially since it's empire waisted, I feel like it makes me look super young. If any of you are interested in it, let me know and we can talk price. I'd be willing to sell it for a mite less than I'd ask for if I posted it on h_l (I refuse to use the sales comm anymore, I hate how it's being regulated and whatnot).

I've been watching River Monsters every chance I've gotten. I'm addicted to hearing about HORRIBLE FISH.

Speaking of tv, OMG PROJECT RUNWAY TONIGHT. I promised mom I'd record it though and wait for her to get home to watch it though. I may just watch it a second time with her and tune in for it in a few minutes. Idk.

ALSO OMG SHARK WEEK. I am so there. It'll keep me sane while the Grandmother is about.

Saw Inception. Oh. my. GOD. It was amazing. My heart was pounding the whole fucking time. I want to see it again.

Thinking of redoing my mood theme now that TS3's come out. I think I'll resize the pictures, make them a wee bit bigger. Or maybe I'll make a different one, idk. I'M JUST SO FUCKING LAZY LATELY. I really need to get my ass in gear!

Okay....since when is the afghan stitch called anything BUT an afghan stitch?!?! I think this is one of the problems with being COMPLETELY self-taught: I'm kind of clueless as to what the rest of the world is informed about. :[ So, yeah.... afghan = tunisian. CUH-RAZY. That just turned my world upside down.

I'm working on a new scarf with my DREAM yarn. I'll post pics later tonight of the four rows I've gotten done so far XD

OH AND I AM WATCHING VOYAGER AGAIN AND I WANT TO KNOW SINCE WHEN HAS LON SUDER BEEN A SEX GOD?!?! IS THIS NEW? WHY HAS NOBODY TOLD ME OF THE HOTNESS OF SERIAL KILLERS?

Crazed Killers: Hot?
Lon Suder? Check.
Zolf Kimbley? Check.
Hannibal Lecter? Double Check.
Mr. Teatime? From what I've heard, Check.

Totally crazy, guys! I think I've just conducted the most ground-breaking sociological study EVER! Any other crazies you want to suggest?

Today's been.....interesting. I think I got a C on my Art History test, mainly because I forgot to study. I'm going to finish up the Valentine's TODAY, and they will all be sent off by tomorrow. If yours is late, let me know and I'll send you something for St. Patrick's day or something.....idk. I'll figure it out.

Fudge turned out amazing--so claims my brother and my taste buds. I had been worried that I had added either too much chocolate or too much salt or too little condensed milk but NO! 'Tis PERFECT.

It's gross and muggy right now but I feel pretty good despite. I saw a fire truck and an ambulance going down Crestline Road on my way out of the subdivision, so I'm thinking there was another fire somewhere in the neighborhood....I'm wondering if we have an arsonist or something though because that's the second one in less than a month. :\

Haha...I'm watching "Tuvix." It's the most awkward episode of ST:Voy EVER. I really hate it.....? Love it......? It's a love/hate relationship.


Okay....list for Valentine's is as follows, let me know if you want to be added if you're not already on there:

Audrey
Beth
Sarah
Darwin
Keri
Ben
Kim
Chaney
Mom

Mom is getting some carnations, Chaney is going to get....idk yet. Keri is going to get some underwear and some fudge or cookies (probably cookies because I bet my collection of stuffed animals she has some weird thing against fudge). Sarah's getting fudge and cat food. Beth is going to get a care package of surprise and wonderful things that will be sent AFTER her card. Darwin is getting fudge. Ben is getting....I'm not sure because vegan's are hard to shop for when you yourself like steaks and stuff. Audrey will get something crocheted that will be sent AFTER her card. Kim will get....something....not sure what, and it will also be sent AFTER her card.

And me? What am I getting? A PICNIC~ I'm considering the Houston loli picnic on the 16th to be my Valentine's Day gift.

OH AND MY CATS ARE GETTING SOME FANCY SCHMANCY CAT FOOD BECAUSE THEY ARE CUTE AND I LOVE THEM MORE THAN ANY OF YOU LOSERS.

In a few minutes, National Novel Writing Month 2007 will be over. Yet another chance at reaching 50,000 will have slipped through my fingers. I had felt so confident that I could reach my goal this year, and I'm not insanely angry or anything that I've not reached my goal (I did have a "valid" reason) but...

I don't know...

I had just been doing so well; I had been so confident that I would complete my novel this year. Looking back, I feel a bit of regret I'm not going to win this year. I mean, I am going to finish it...but I'm not going to touch it until after I get done with finals and everything. I want to have it done by the end of January...it's just so strange. I had been so close, and now it's just slipped through my fingers. I'm vaguely disappointed.

BAH! But I'm returning to school on Monday. Blech...maybe that's what's got me in such a state.

I just...I can't get over the fact that in a few hours it's going to be December. December! December, and I'm still wearing short skirts and light cardigans. December, and I'm leaving my house sans bright red pea coat. December, and I have yet to pull out my weird pseudo-Himalayan hat with the huge pom on the top. December!

I remember when I was a child and we would all be clad in coats long before Thanksgiving. I remember as a child, worrying about being too cold when I went trick-or-treating. I remember when I was really young and the whole city froze over and dad and Chaney and I played outside all day in the ice.

I remember two years ago when Sophie (and most of the population) was able to wear shorts on Christmas Day.

I miss the way things used to be.

Also, I think I may be Bennett's only friend. I thought it was kind of weird that he was at the hospital everyday when I was there...but then he started showing up at my house too. It turns out he's having some family troubles and I'm the only one (besides his shrink) that he feels comfortable talking with about it. I don't mind helping people out with their problems...but you can't honestly expect me to be on call all day everyday. I kind of want to tell him he needs to suck it up and just accept that his parents do not see things the way he does and that he's living under their roof and so he doesn't have a say in that but then I feel bad. I mean, I have this great social network filled with family and friends that I can rely on...he has no one.

But I just CANNOT deal with constantly having to counsel him at all hours. Normally people get paid a lot do this stuff, but here I am, doing it for free for someone I'm not even that close to. And it's not like I hate him...I'm just not that great of friends with him.

Also, today I discovered there exists a Geek magazine. That's the actual name of it. Geek. I love it. I think I'm going to subscribe.

Ah, but onto today. TODAY. I went out today. And not only did I go out, I DROVE. My mom and I went to the mall (!) and then we went to Blockbuster and then we went home. I'm just so ecstatic that I went out today.

Haha...and Beth makes me laugh. And I need some yarn for the amigurumi I want to give out. ♥~

So I am completely in LOVE with amigurumi all of a sudden. At first, I couldn't stand them. I would look at them and say, "well gee....what a waste of yarn. I'm going to go make some mittens now" but now I cannot get enough of them. I've already decided someone's getting a little penguin as part of either her x-mas or b-day pressie. :3 But I can't say who. XD

AMIGURUMI!!!!!
