Oh, wait. I used cosmo mix but with sour apple vodka. Which means it's something else... probably an avocado.
I am drinking Cosmopolitans. The cocktail is like seriously the greatest invention ever, with the possible exception of the cocktail shaker. But it's sort of like the chicken and the egg. Or love and marriage, or whatever. You can't have one without the other.

*sips*
pwaaa. Why don't I ever remember to come here?

Well I know when I write in here. It's when I need a place to myself. It's a comforting feeling, though sometimes it's spurred by something uncomfortable. Which is what makes it comforting, though. If you have chicken soup when you're not sick it's just bits of chickens and carrots floating around, right?

So anyway. Yesterday I had a lovely time, actually left the house after THE BLIZZARD. Went to Mexican restaurant. Margaritas were enjoyed. There was a horrible sort of Mexican American Idol on (if that makes any sense) which was hilarious.

hmm. The County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl is a REALLY crap bowl name.

snoooooooow!!

So, wow. I've been sick ~ sore throat, stuffy nose, coughing, the whole shebang ~ for the last several days. And I have not had anything to drink since last Thursday's Christmas Beer Party of Doom (TM). But today I felt like making cocktails, which consisted of gin, OJ, and ginger ale, and my throat feels sooo much better! I think I have discovered some sort of liquid throat lozenge! I had like a hacking death cough previously. :/

Well that was a loooong day ~ it seems like it's been about 27 hours since yesterday. Snow creates a sort of odd slowing down of time.

Just like me... MARTIN GRAMATICA IS BACK, BABY!!!

I have willed it. So it is written, so it shall be. Let the Chipmunk Era begin in New Orleans!

Man, a lot of people on lj suck. This is because they are teenage girls. I didn't like them the first time around, and I sure as hell don't like 'em now. And some of them are breeding. *hides in closet*

Seriously, this one girl is a complete raging bitch, and everyone kisses her ass! The whole thing makes me feel sick. It really is just like high school (well especially for her, since she's like 17... with a baby... and a whole lot of misplaced bile). I've NEVER UNDERSTOOD that whole girl thing. Mean girl thing. If someone is a raging bitch, I simply want to be VERY FAR AWAY from them. And if I understand how these things go, some other bitch will be like, "wait! She's a huge bitch! We don't like her anymore!" And absolutely nothing will change, except there'll be a different bitch bitching, and maybe in a different color.

siiiigh.... why did I want to make graphics on lj, again? Curse my love of shiny things!!

Anyway... I sent out my animal shelter Christmas cards today... felt good! I am really digging Christmas this year. I feel like it's my friend again, like... I can look past all the obligatory crap and just see the sparkle, y'know? The sparkle is always there, underneath things, if you look close enough. I swear.

Go to the category page on Overheard Everywhere. Find your area (state, country, university, etc) under 'Places', and post a few (1-5) quotes that you think exemplify the area.

College girl: I'm taking this online Arabic course... Did you know their alphabet is just all, like, smiley faces?

Providence, Rhode Island

Lesbian: True friends don't believe you have STDs!

Energy-Alternative club
Providence, Rhode Island

Teen boy to friends: I tried to drink a whole gallon of milk once, but that didn't happen and I ended up drinking a half gallon instead. Then I ended up pissing shit, man. It was awful, and it smelled so bad...

Skybridge, Providence Place Mall
Providence, Rhode Island

Drunk frat boy: Shiiit, I'm God! I'm God, and I've seen so much asscrack!

Brown University
Providence, Rhode Island

(And in case you're wondering, they ALL exemplify Rhode Island, baby!) :D

Well that's about all I can muster today folks. I'm sick and have been wandering around in a cobwebby Nyquil haze. *wanders off*

Ahh, Stranded in Space. Gotta love a "sci-fi" movie whose premise allows for the entire thing to be filmed in Bakersfield, or similar. It's not Earth, it's "Terra!" Those aren't pigs, they're, um... space pigs! yeah. good times.

This peppermint mocha coffee creamer is so freaking good! It's especially nice being sipped from this peppermint striped coffee mug. Life really is all about the simple pleasures. They're pretty easy to create, actually, and always underrated in this crazy world of action!!

Also, am amused by that little ad for people advertising on your blog... honestly, who would want to advertise on a blog that talks about toenails??

Dr. Scholl's? Pedicurists? The company that makes toenail clippers (TCI, one would presume... Toenail Clippers, Inc.)?

*vastly amused right now*
Pah! I changed settings on my blog and I think it would be very easy to hit "delete blog" instead of "update settings," even though one is in red friendly letters and the other is in black doomy letters. Delete... deleeeeete!! noooo!

Anyway, I didn't delete it, obviously.
What I hate about cutting my toenails is, I cut them over the trash bin but they go pinging off in all directions EXCEPT the trash bin and then I have to go hunt them down. Toenail hunting = ick. Or if I was a guy I would just let them lie there until... ever. Ever? Are toenails biodegradable or whatever? Eh. Well it seems the thing to do is aim everywhere BUT the trash bin and then they will probably go pinging in. *nod*

I must have something to talk about besides... toenails.

Well there are some very strange things saved on the DVR. Movies with titles like "At Midnight I Will Eat Your Soul and I Won't Floss My Teeth Afterwards," or "I am Coming to Shoot You in the Foot and it Might Smart a Bit." Or my personal fave, "At Breakfast I Will Pour OJ on Your Cornflakes Instead of Milk, Muahaha." I seriously have no idea what this shit is!!

Gosh I miss doing these late-night blog updates. But they were usually done while playing Clan Lord and eating cheese. That was a different lifetime ago. I'll have to make a new lifetime, eh?

(Just as long as it's not Lifetime: Television for Women. Cause seriously, how many Tori Spelling movies can one watch before realizing, "hey, I just watched a bunch of Tori Spelling movies and it's several hours later in my life!")

Also I never eat late at night anymore. I'm trying to watch my weight. How depressing is that??

I found a layout that ALMOST looked like limes. Almost... if you squint a little and go to Argentina. Sooooo it looks like my lime is really and truly gone. My bloggy soul is still here but my limes have fallen into the abyss. Not a bad trade-off, I suppose.

Anyway, it might have been an avocado.
One reason I wanted to start writing here again is, I MISS everything. So many of the things I've loved have gone, gone forever, and this makes me sad. Like Battlebots. And Martin Gramatica. And that shirt I used to wear. Y'know. Even the curse is gone - I don't miss it, I'm just sayin'. Changes! Scary! Fast! So much has changed from 5 years ago, much of it good, but there's still enough missing to be a bit upsetting, eh? So I am trying to collect as many things as possible that are still here. Like this blog, bless its little bloggy heart. For one scary moment I thought I'd lost it - I thought google had eaten it! - but thank God it is still here. *hugs*

I don't know how much I will update, or what I'll write about, but it's nice to have this little part of me back. The good AND the bad, it's the fundamental interconnectedness of all things. Yes, I still quote Douglas Adams. :D Though, my Douglas Adams group on Yahoo is gone, as is my HP group. I don't even know if I miss these things so much as I miss them being there. I wonder what all those people are doing now. Do they ever think, whatever happened to that group? Or do other people move on properly from things and it's just me who ends up missing them? Heck, even I left most everything for lj. But I came back. I always seem to come back, when I can. When whatever I was searching for is, miraculously, still there.

Livejournal gives me pretty graphics, but this gives me my soul.
Y HELO THAR

I'm baaaack!

Dang well it's been a coon's age, hasn't it? How've you been, old friend? (I have no idea what the age of a coon is, btw. Most sayings make no sense whatsoever.) Anyway, Livejournal ate my soul for a while but I think I've gotten it back, albeit slightly chewed. Which isn't to say I'm not still on lj - I've just found there are some things I don't want to share on lj. Y'know, with *dundundun* people! Also, I missed this place. Which is of course evident by my being gone so long they sold my blog to Google, or something. hmmm. yes. Well anyway, I'm back now and happy to be here!

Things that have changed since I first started writing/last wrote on this blog:

I now say things like, "Y HELO THAR." But don't worry, I don't do it often.

When I started here (5 years ago!!) I was blonde, then I was redhead, then brown, then brown w/highlights, and now I'm blonde again. *sings* It's the ciiiircle of liiiiiife...

I loved Martin Gramatica. I still love Martin Gramatica, but since he's disappeared from football I'm finding it more difficult. However, he is superior to a very large basketball player, apparently. http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2007/06/30/martin-gramatica-stronger-than-kevin-durant/

I moved away from WV, and have become a huge WVU fan. Freaky, huh?

The Red Sox won the World Series. Again. :D

I still stay up all night, and straight on til morning.

Well probably many more relevant things have changed besides my haircolor and college football team, but... oh hell, it's me. They probably haven't. :P

Oh one more thing has changed... my layout! My lime has gone! My lovely lime... or avocado. Whatever it was. Anyway, it's gone and I'm sad. I now have a sort of random pink thing, because, PINK! *squee*

So... yeah! *waves*
