Sorry to all the Twilight fans out there, but I just had to share this post, if you haven't seen it already.


To be honest, though, I haven't even read or seen Twilight. It just doesn't really appeal to me outside of wanting to know what all the hype is about. It's just that, once you've read grown-up vampire novels, I don't really want to go back to blah-teen-angst. For those of you who never were into sci-fantacy or horror before Twilight, I'm glad that it's opened up the genre the way HP did for fantacy. Now I beg you--GO PICK UP A LAURELL K. HAMILTON BOOK!!!!!! You will not regret it. There's a sexy-smexy vampire, real villains, real blood and gore, and a whole lot better vampire mythology. Like, a real one. That makes sense and is consistant rather than convenient.

Mother Day

current mood: content

I wanted to thank everyone for their support when my grandma died. It was comforting to hear all of your condolences. It's been a few months, so the pain isn't as new. But when my mom suggested that we go visit both grandma's today for Mother's Day, for a minute I forgot. Then I realized that she meant going to visit the graveyard. I didn't cry of anything, it just surprised me. I'd forgotten for a second.

Anyway, for those of you who are mom's, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! And for the rest of you, I hope you all go tell your moms that you love them and how you appriciate how much they've done for you over the years. My mom is one of the most amazing women in the world, and I cannot imagine where I'd be without her. (Besides non-existant :D) She puts up with drama, hypochondria, whining, and hauling my non-driving ass around on the weekends. She deserves diamonds, but since I can't afford diamonds, I'm baking her cookies.

And to all of the women who have influenced my life (Gail, you too!) I'm blessed for having known you and for having your care.

Did I mention that 2010 is the Year of Crap?

My grandmother died on Wednesday. The funeral is Monday.

The weird thing is (and for those of you who don't have an active belief in any sort of afterlife, this will seem really weird) I think she's okay now. I mean, there she was, in Kroger's (grocery store here in Cincy, OH), and then she was hit by a sudden pain, a WTF moment, then boom, she's standing outside her body going, "Huh..." in a Mal Reynolds-type fashion. No more bills to pay (and we didn't know until my Dad and Aunt started going through her paperwork trying to sort things out on Wednesday afternoon that she'd taken out a loan that she was trying to repay and had several credit card bills they didn't know about, not to mention that she'd had to cancel part of her life insurance because she couldn't afford it anymore) and no more worry over...anything else.

I think my Grandpa was there to meet her. He was so handsome when he was young. I've seen their wedding picture, and seriously... he was movie-star handsome. I think he was young and sober and waiting for her. At least I hope so. And her sister, my Great Aunt Marleen who everyone called Bubbles was there, too. She died when I was in 5th grade. And my Aunt Debbie who died of lukemia when she was only 13...my dad was 9. I'm sure she was there. And my Great-Grandma. She'd be waiting too. So it's just us left behind that are unhappy and dealing with this. (My aunt and my cousin Stephen are taking this the hardest. My grandma lived with them since my grandpa died almost 10 years ago, and even before that, she practically helped my aunt raise Stephen when his dad left.)

Anyway, I think she's okay. I think she can relax now and be happy. Until next time around. Hopefully she takes a nice long break between incarnations, though. I don't think she was very happy in this one. She needs a little R&R before heading back into the fray.

current mood: pessimistic

2010 already seems to be the Year of Poo, not just in the world, but personally. I've had family members in and out of the hospital in the last 3 weeks, though thankfully nothing serious. I discovered I have bedbugs, and let me tell you how icky and loathsome this exeriance is turning out to be. EW! Plus Haiti and surely a bunch of other things I'm frankly too insular to know about.


I'm beginning to think 2012 might actually be the end of the world as we know it. Come let's all break into REM, shall we?

It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's the end)
It's the end of the world as we know it
(It's the end)
And I feel fine!

current mood: guilty

Okay, so I've been a huge lazy-ass lately! LOL! I know, I know, I'm sorries! I haven't posted in forever, but I just feel like...belgh! What's been going on in my life that's so exciting? You know? I get up, I go to work, (I think I'm getting carpal in my wrist, elbow, and shoulder--or tendinitis, whatever, cuz they alternately hurt and feel tingly numb. We don't have arm rests on our chairs, and our desks are situated funny so my right arm--dominant hand, and all--is constantly hanging off my shoulder very unhealthfully and...ow.), I then come home, occasionally watch some boob-tube, read, read on ff.net, and go to beddies just so I can get up and do it again. I don't DO anything. I have no car, and the Cincy metro is kinda the suck in terms of routes and destinations. Plus...I IS ALL ALOOOOONE!!!! My peeps have all left me and gotten real lives. (Not that I blame y'alls. I just...am lonely. I don't make friends easily, not real ones, and don't get me wrong, I like my solitude, but I miss you guys who used to be here.

Which is a nice segue into this little bit of me-ness: I'm thinking of joining Geek2Geek, that internet dating, chat place for, well, geeks, obviuosly. I mean, where else am I going to find someone who gets the reference "If you can't run, you crawl, and if you can't do that, you find someone to carry you"? Or who knows how to read manga correctly, and understands Buffy references, and won't think I'm a total freak if I squee about fanfiction and icons and wallpapers featuring my ship-of-the-year? And, even better, someone who won't think it's weird when I crack out my tarot cards and do a quick celtic cross or when I HAVE to stop in the bookstore before I leave the mall and spend an hour and a half ogling the pretties.

See, the problem with me, I'll admit, is that I'm a hypocrite. Let me explain: I'm rather chubby. I'd call myself fat, though there are definitely those who are larger than me. I'm also not particularly pretty. I clean up okay, and I'm even...cute, I guess, when I put my mind to it. But my face is kind of squished together (true-- I had someone at Lenscrafters a few years ago helping me pick out new frames and she mentioned that my facial features were all centered very close together) and plus with the extra poundage, I'm not classically pretty. It's not low self-esteem, it's owning a mirror and knowing what I look like. But...I like hot guys. I'd like someone who's interested in me to be thinnish and handsome. Well kept, well groomed, and yummy. And those guys??? Are never going to look twice at me. I know this.  It's an evolutionary perogative--good-looking people end up with good-looking people, the smart to the smart, the wealthy with the wealthy...like attacts like in all things except physics. But when some...troll gives me what he clearly thinks is a charming smirk (usually just creepy) and says (INVARIABLY! EVERY FRIGGIN' TIME!!!) "Hey, baby, what's yo' name?" (Uh, Not Interested.) all I can think is, why do cute guys never flirt with me.

See? Hypocrite.

Also, snob. I know. It's a failing, but I'm not sure it's one I'm willing to give up. I mean, is it snobbery or standards? Probably a bit of both.

Okay, I've burdened you all with my pathos enough for one post. As always, I'll try to update more often. LOVE YOU ALL!

Mama Mia!

July 23rd, 2009 (06:20 pm)

current mood: content

Took me all bloody week to post this, but YAY! I took my sister to see Mama Mia! (stage show) on Saturday last. It was so fun. We got all dolled up and went downtown to catch an afternoon matinee, then caught the bus back to my humble abode. We went to the College Hill Coffee Company for dinner, then watched Dodgeball. (Then, unfortunately, I had the mother of all sinus headaches thanks to the bloody soggy weather we had that day) so I had to go to bed. She slept over on the floor. And scared the crap out of me in the middle of the night when she got up to go to the bathroom. Sheesh!  'Bout gave her sissy a heart attack!

The show was awesome! I'd seen the movie before, and it follows the stage version very closely. There were a few differences, obviously, but it was truly adorable. The curtain call took forever, but it was fun. Everybody in the theater was up and dancing at the end. It was a lot of fun! I think Kate had a lot of fun, but she's not very communicative. But she said she had fun. And so did I. :D
