Best fic snippet ever, y/YYY ? ♥

...I'm not ignoring you guys, I'm just trying to fight through skip=100 so I can get back to the eighty bajillion things I need to get done before the familial seasonal celabrationing gets rolling. Tomorrow night. And I have to work tomorrow. It's very hard to crochet/sew/wrap gifts/bake when you are holding a 3-month-old and/or chasing a 3-year-old. Fail, world, fail.

In other news, I saw Sweeney Todd on friday and it was lovely. ♥ (Random Anthony Stewart Head, FTW!)

Mostly this post is to tell you that I am cold. My Jack Skellington blankie is making inroads to keeping me warm, but I should probably still go put on some socks or something.

Side note: I haven't actually watched Nightmare Before Christmas since... not long after it came out. When I was a tiny, tiny thing. I was wondering the other day why I hadn't watched it again. Then I realized that I don't own it. Which is kinda crazy because I own a lot of fucking DVDs. I was thinking, how do I not own it? Then I looked online, and apparently Disney hasn't released it from the vault since, like, 2000? That's some crazy shit. I really need to get my hands on a copy at some point. This is ridiculous. Damn you, Disney.

In other news, I am flat fucking broke (contents of my wallet - $0.11), but I'm done with my holiday shopping. Now I just need to get on making the stuff I'm supposed to make. Which is... more things than I want to think about right now. Ack. Not enough time in the world.

I also need to get on wrapping stuff. Because I am the designated wrapping lackey for the contents of two households which adds up to a lot of presents really.

Argh. I'm gonna get back to my f-list now.
What did I do to celebrate the new year? Flew back from Maryland. Yay for surviving!

My mom came to pick me & Jen up at the airport and she brought my sis & my nephew with, which was quite adorable because Luke spotted us and came running for us, yelling my name. This picturesque moment was shattered when his pants started slipping down; he got distracted pulling them up and started running around in circles, forgetting all about his beloved aunt. Oh well. It was really cute while it lasted. And I saved him crackers shaped like airplanes which he was fairly impressed by.

I was tired enough from traveling that celebrating the new year didn't seem that important. I barely managed to stay up until midnight, kissed Jen, and promptly went to bed. Not my most enthusiastic new year.

Spent most of today packing up and getting back to the dorm, which we're currently trying to make livable again. We seriously need to wash out the fridge. It's gross.
So it doesn't much feel like New Year's Day.

I might post a x-mas haul list in a few days once I unpack. I didn't get anything particularly spectacular, so you're not missing much. Helen came by today to give me prezzies. She let her boyfriend help her pick out gifts again. *headdesk* Anybody want some hardcore lesbian porn?

The next three weeks are going to be pretty boring, with any luck. I am very okay with that. *cuddles compy* I missed my computer muchly.

Also, I have a killer bruise on my knee because Jen's mom's house tried to kill me. I was just reminded of this because Jen bumped into it, and you know what? Bruises HURT!

I don't think I have anything else to say. I don't want to go to work tomorrow. At least part of this is because I don't know if I have to or not. I'm splitting hours with somebody and she hasn't e-mailed me yet to let me know if she's working tomorrow or not. I guess, if I don't hear from her tonight, I will go in and be annoyed if she is there, too. *is annoyed*

The most important thing I did in the last month is get addicted to Scrubs. If you have never seen Scrubs, then you are a sad and deprived person. If do not believe me that this show is awesome, simply go watch this lovely music video on youtube.

Okay, I'm done. I shall stop blathering and annoying my friends-list now.

I just realized that I almost never update from the LJ update page. Wow. I really don't like it at all.

Anywho, HI f-list! I may have neglected to mention that I'm on limited internet rations till after New Years on account of how it seemed silly to haul my desktop home for like... 10 days. So, yes, borrowing the mommy's laptop & the wireless was being wonky yesterday to top it off. In summary, I just slogged through the last 80 entries on my f-list.

I have been crocheting and wrapping prezzies and watchin tv for the last 48 hours or so. Seriously, nothing else. I don't have much wrapping or crocheting left to do, though, so yay for that.

TV: So I watched most of Wedding Wars last night with my mom. I was actually surprised at how good it was. I honestly hadn't expected much from it (other than the obligatory shiny-ness of Uncle Joey Jesse/Simon Tam), but it was really pretty good. It didn't feel half-assed like made-for-tv-movies usually do. It was good and hopeful and shiny and made me happy. And I really don't ask for much beyond that.

Other TV: So I watched Numb3rs on Friday. Yeah, I don't know what to say about that. I haven't actually watched the show in 4 or 5 episodes... so, though I knew what was coming, I had no clue they were going about it so... incredibly stupidly. Come on! They really couldn't come up with a better reason than that? I do not often feel insulted by television even when it is pretty insulting to my intelligence, but Numb3rs, you offend me. I think I may just give up on this season and start fresh next year.

Other other TV: I also caught up on like the last 6 or 7 episodes of Criminal Minds yesterday. I still like it. With the things the rest of my TV has been doing to me (I'm looking at you, House) that really is a rousing cheer of joy. New chick hasn't made me hate her yet and that's always promising.

It's a lot easier to watch tv when I don't have to, like, go to class and work and stuff. Also, when the internet is broken, that helps. Not that I would wish such a thing. *hugs internet*

I'm gonna stop babbling now. :)

Oh yeah, I forgot I meant to post this here as well! *pets f-list*

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you. [Note: Your home address is not required!]

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call. There are no guarantees with this project, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

(My list.)

*happy sigh*
[livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes makes me so happy. I'm hoping to send out a batch of packages by the end of this week. I have to go buy packaging materials tonight. :)
*is ridiculously happy to be making self broke for the benefit of strangers*

Also, I know a few of you on my f-list have posted your lists. I'd like to take another look at them to see if there's any I can fill, but I'm terribly lazy and don't want to hunt them down as I can't remember who did it and who didn't. Link me to your lists, pretty please?

The [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes comm intrigues me. I browsed it for like three hours this morning, and was fascinated that I kept finding things that I actually could easily do for people. So I think I'm going to. I posted a list over there & now I'm off to go figure out what I'm going to do and for whom, so I can start contacting them. ^.^ This pleases me ridiculously.

I can't decide, though, if doing it through a comm like that, is better or worse than doing it on your f-list. Obviously, more people seeing it = more people who might be able to grant your wish, but there's a certain closeness and strengthening of friendship if it's someone on your f-list who can do something for you. Hmm. Requires more thought, I think.

It's only...two days late. And also, I cheated. But here, my Xms wish list.
<3 you, Rita.

ETA: I want a My Little Pony. Preferably a styling hair thingamajig.

So.... random update-y-ness.
X-mas was good times. Got lots of stuff. Including barbie dolls from my wonderful girlfriend. Because she loves me. And I wanted them. So, yay!
Oh, and I got Brothers Grimm on DVD, and about three sets of pajamas, and a truly gorgeous and highly expensive necklace from teh girlfriend, as well as assorted other odds and ends. (Did you know they make teeny tiny little miniature Uno decks?)

Been kinda out of whack for the last couple of days because I stayed up all night on x-mas day so we could go after-christmas-shopping very early on the 26th. I took a nap that afternoon and have been sleeping and waking at strange intervals ever since which has kinda led to me not really knowing what day it is. Not to mention the fact that my girlfriend went to sleep while I was only napping and thus somehow managed to turn her sleep-rotation diametrically opposite of mine. I went to sleep at about 2 in the morning yesterday, which was a few hours after she woke up, and when I woke up shortly after noon, she had just gone to sleep. She woke up at about 2 in the morning and now, a few hours later, I'm tired and about to go to sleep. Eventually we'll get this sorted out. I think.

Also, I'm having a grape smirnoff twist because there was no grape soda in the fridge. And I definitely spilled it in my keyboard. Somewhat interesting, considering it's the first time I've spilled something in my keyboard and I've had it for two and a half years. Unfortunately it's probably not really a good thing. It's kinda sticky. But it seems to be working fine right now, and hopefully it will dry out okay.

Well, that is my update. Night guys.

I just got ridiculously excited because I realize that I get to sleep in until nine or nine-thirty tomorrow after having to be at work at eight AM every morning this week. It's the little things that make life worth living. ^.^

I'm so glad that classes and finals are done for the semester and am quite looking forward to the long break. I feel quite certain that I will need lots of rest in advance to survive next semester.

Now if only my $%@#$@#$ professors would put up my $%@#$@#$@$% grades! *grr*

I have most of my stuff ready to go home tomorrow. Except for my computer, of course, which I will undoubtedly turn off at the last possible minute. :)

It needs to be x-mas now, plzthxbye.

Well, I was gonna let Rita tell it first but since she's so *slow* and still without power in her living room, I guess I'll have to cut in line.
Damn, she beat me to posting!

So, yesterday me and Jen had to take Rita to the emergency room.
Because she was having an allergic reaction.
To something.
She's fine now.
Not the point of this story.
The point of the story is that since we were already out and about, Jen and I decided to go shopping after we left Rita safely in the care of her mommy and the hospital. So we went to Wal-mart. And the mall. And out for chinese food. But the grand total of this experience is that I ended up spending nearly $150 on x-mas presents and stuff. At least it's november so I don't feel like a complete loser for buying x-mas presents already ~*cough*Jen*cough*~.
Thusfar I've only bought stuff for... 4 different people. I'm having a major block trying to figure out what to get some people. *grr*
I've almost entirely decided what to get for a few people, I just haven't actually gone out and gotten it yet. And I don't know where the hell I'm going to store all this crap after I have it. Damn dorm. But Yay! for shopping!!! I get a truly unhealthy level of satisfaction out of spending money. I'm such an American. I almost think I should be ashamed of this... nope.

Anyway, what should I get my mommy for x-mas?
For those of you interested to know what kinds of things I would want for X-mas, Amazon pwns my soul. Thusly, my Amazon wishlist is located here.
My wishlist is excessively large and unwieldy and I like it that way. I can't decide if browsing through it gives an uncomfortable amount of insight into my soul or just makes me look like a lunatic. ^.^

The only specific thing I am lusting for that is not available from Amazon is the Pretender soundtrack. (Amazon, why have you forsaken meeeeeee?!?)

Are you happy now, Rita?
Well, Christmas was pretty nice. In my family, we exchange gifts on Christmas Eve night, so we did all that yesterday. Got some good stuff including a new black jacket, King Arthur on DVD, a frog bed canopy-thing and some other clothes. I also got a very expensive, very pretty pair of earrings from my sister Susan because she's just like that. None of the family that was supposed to come over for Christmas Eve made it because of the shitty-ass roads, except for those that were already here before the weather went to hell in a handbasket. Susan was going to come on Christmas day anyway, so she was here. Helen's family came by today instead of yesterday. Danny may come by tomorrow or he may wait until New Year's Eve.
On Christmas Eve I went over to my sister Tamie's house for awhile because she's currently angry at our mom and refuses to speak to her much less see her. After I came back from that, I mostly just hung around and ate homemade pizza (a Christmas Eve tradition) until we decided to just open the presents already because nobody else was coming. I think my nephew got more presents than everyone else in the family put together. The worst part is we've been trying to teach him to open presents and Luke just refuses. You tear a corner so he can get a good hold on it, then you try to encourage him to grab it and rip it open and he just looks up at you. So then you tear it a little more and try again and before you realize it, you've unwrapped the whole thing and he's still staring at you like you're an idiot. Gee, I love kids.
Anyway, we waited until it was officially Christmas (12:01) to break into the stockings, in which I got a pair of snowflake toe socks, some Cinnabon lip balm and I forget what else. After that, I hung out and talked to my brother Michael and my mom's boyfriend Bruce until about four in the morning. And then I didn't get to sleep until five because I wandered off towards my room and got distracted on the way there because my sister left the Blue Collar Comedy tour playing and I ended up watching half of it before I managed to drag myself away. Damn Jeff Foxworthy.
I got dragged out of bed at the crack of noon (way to start Christmas properly, huh?) and mostly sat around and hung out with family and friends and played with the baby all afternoon. Talked to Kristin ([livejournal.com profile] krisskyo) on the phone for awhile somewhere in there. After dinner we ended up playing a round of Cranium (which is a *crazy* fucking game. if you have never played it, you should) and after that we played Black Jack with my new poker chips (oh yeah, forgot to mention those). I spent most of that several hour time span trying to play while holding a sleeping baby. Which sounds sweet and adorable, but 20 pounds of sleeping child gets heavy after three hours!
It's after 2 AM now and I think about half the people have finally gone off to bed, and I guess I'd better go see what trouble the rest of them are getting into...
Is it bad that I'm kind of more excited about New Year's than I was about Christmas? How the hell did the year 2005 sneak up on my like that? I love New Year's, but I hate new years. Yes, I'm aware I'm silly.
In other news... I seriously need to get away from these people before I lose all grasp on the english language... even my *thoughts* have a frickin' country accent and it's only been a week... I just need to keep telling myself: I do *not* talk like this. I do *not* talk like this. I do *not* talk like this... Hell, most of them don't normally talk like this either; Bruce is just a bad damn influnce...

Late for work *again* today. I woke up at 8:00 on the dot this time, if that's an improvement. I made it to work by about 8:15, so not too bad. I really need to stop doing this. I also need to stop writing LJ entries at work as they end up being way more morose than I usually am. But what else am I supposed to do to kill time? I've been here for less than 15 minutes and I've already checked all 3 of my main e-mail addresses and checked my friends list for updates. I guess I'll go read fic.
My thanksgiving was pretty good. Ate lots of leftovers. I had turkey and mashed potatoes for dinner Sunday night before I left. I also played a hell of a lot of Dirty Rummy (Grr. Thanks Rita. I taught it to like 4 or 5 people and Zoe's already taught it to somebody else.) and other card games. I bought Trivial Pursuit 90's Edition, but I left it at home. I think I finished up the last of my Christmas shopping on Black Friday. Spent way too much money, but I guess that's to be expected. The only presents I don't have yet are ones that are still in the mail. I need to wrap Jen's X-mas presents this afternoon while she's in class. I think I have everybody else WKU-wise wrapped and ready to be given except for the one of Kriss's that isn't here yet. (I ordered something for myself at the same place and I want it to come, damnit!)
~Wow, a customer came in! Wow, the telephone!~ I take it back. I like being bored.
...well, this has killed about fifteen minutes of my morning... *sigh*
