Tonight is the start of football games. So if you're lookin' for me.. that's where I am.

I'm sure FUMA will kick our asses. So begins another season of losing. Oh wait.. positive thinking.. right. Uhm. Go Flucos!

I'm only there for the band anyways.

Thank you very much to [livejournal.com profile] sorayaphoenix for sharing the following link.


I'd been struggling with my own post to post and yet, hadn't been quite able to find my own words. My heart is heavy for the people of Knoxville.

I don't ever need a reminder as to why I am who I am. I just know.

Much love,

Despite being in a grumpy mood lately, I'm trying to not succumb to a bad mood. Prayers for those who are in need.

And a reminding thought..

The Last Lecture

Seeing your first summer movie with the ones you love: $30
Yummy Mexican Dinner out: $35
Heath Ledger as the Joker: Priceless.

No spoilers, just the best damn movie I've seen in a long time. I think I gripped the edge of my seat for hours.

Your result for The Golden Compass Daemon Test...

Shy Loving Soul

You are a sensitive and shy person. You want to be loved and liked, but you don't think people actually like you very much, and that hurts to think about. You like to be with your family and friends, who care about you. When you are with them, you can open up and talk and be yourself. Among strangers, however, you are nervous and tend to clam up. People are often surprised at how talkative you can be once they get to know you, because you appear to be so quiet and bland at first. You hide your feelings from people whom you do not know well, because you don't know if you can trust them. With your loved ones you can be more yourself.

Your feelings are easily hurt, and you tend to be easily embarassed. You are sensitive, and your loved ones may even tease you about being a little TOO sensitive at times. When your feelings are hurt, you don't always let on. You don't like confrontations, and you are not the sort of person to throw a melodramatic hissy fit. You just tend to fret over it for a few days, until eventually the misunderstanding is cleared up, or time heals the wound.

Your daemon would represent your shyness and sensitivity, and your love of family, and your tendency to hide your feelings from strangers. He or She would probably hide in your pocket or sit on your shoulder where he/she would whisper comfort into your ear.

Suggested forms:
Rabbit, Dormouse, Dik-dik, Sighthound

Bleh. That's all I really have to say. It's too complex and confusing to go into other deeper definitions.

Tomorrow we leave at some gawd awful time to head to the In Laws' place. Actually, to the aquarium and then the In Laws, but who's counting? We'll be back some time on Sunday... evening.

All I can say is "Bring on the Beach, baby."
OMG. I can not wait. I may not come back.

Much love,

~....The lighthouse beam has just run out
I'm cold as cold as cold can be

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion... yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now...come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam junk will do just fine
the jetsam sunk, I'm left behind
I'm treading for my life believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing)

Not knowing how to think
I scream aloud, begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I'm reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion... yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now...come down
Let the rain come down
Let the rain come down

Now waking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow (yeah)
Just to prove I knew how (yeah)
It's midnight's late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
Set front row in my need to fall

Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)...~

Come on Friday.... I know you can do it.

Its Friday and its payday and I think it might be the first night of summer lovin' Drive In movies! I'm so excited! ( I love the Drive In.. OMG! )

Edit: Oops! Things change, as they tend to do, and so no Drive In tonight. There's still tomorrow! We'll see what happens.

Tomorrow is my Friday because I'm taking Friday off. I don't really have a reason, other than wanting a three day weekend and wanting to get a few things accomplished before the big Sweet 16 party on Saturday. And since my mom is here, I thought I'd be nice and take one day off. Of course, I also took Weds and Friday off next week, but I had to take Weds off because I have to take her back to the airport at WayTooEarly in the morning. I am so NOT a morning person. I'm not!

Today was great. It was payday and we had Chinese food for lunch and on my way home I had to return a stupid movie we watched. I won't recommend Cloverfield to anyone, cuz I really didn't like it. But oh well, right? Anyways, I managed to pick up 27 Dresses and OMG, so girly and so cute. I love! Much love! And also, the guy at the counter gave me a coupon for $6 previously viewed movies, and I said "But you don't have "Into the Wild".. (which lets face it, I never speak, let alone actually ask for what I want..) So he said, "Well, then I will just make one." And he did! He went back to the shelf and pulled one down and sold it to me for $6.

My mom made fresh salsa which is so good and we had tacos and cheese crisps for dinner. Yum. The guacamole isn't ready yet because the avocados are not ripe, but I'm going to have her make some of that too. Yum.

As for the party, I have a few more things to pick up, but we have cups, plates, napkins, tablecloths, ordered balloons. I got masks, and balloon holders. We bought a bunch of sodas and we're going to do fruit punch too.

Sherry from work come over for lunch one day last week and we played with the SingStar for the PlayStation and it was OMG fun!! I bought a Pop game and a 80's game and we were having a great time singing, that we were almost late back for work. I can't wait to be able to play it without having to hide. Its so much fun, but I already said that.

Getting tired, so I think I'll go to bed.


PS. Who is the idiot who planned the party at the same time as the running of the roses, aka The Kentucky Derby? They should be shot..

Oh yeah...

that was me.

Oh man, LJ ate my whole tea party bday post. :(

I don't have time to redo it. It'll have to wait. Until then, we are off for the weekend to Va Beach.

Much love,
raveness: (dark and twisty)
I would normally do a whole weekend in review, however, I did absolutely nothing yesterday minus watching Disturbia, which I liked very much. Short of rotting my mind with the tube, I slept and was very lazy. P worked, and the kid did her thing. Really, not much to say about that.

Today P also had to work and so he left this morning and while the kid and I were supposed to go to church, we never made it. Instead, I chose to take a shower later and then it was off to rent movies. We bought some previously viewed movies as well as rented "Into the Wild" again, for the second time this week. I told you I loved it. After the movies, we stopped at the local Food Lines to buy a few necessities in life: corned beef, carrots, potatoes, toothpaste, conditioner, soap and Mountain Dew. Tomorrow we have to make our traditional supper of corned beef. Yum.

After getting the food put in the fridge, I ditched the kid to make my way out in the boonies to visit Wendy. I eyed the gas tank in the Saturn, tried to calculate exactly how many miles she lives and decided that unless something very bad happened, I could make it there and back without having to get gas. Much of where we live in Virginia is rural, and I mean really rural. As in, if you need gas, you'd better be driving near a gas station. There are places out here where gas pumps are as scarce as swimming pools. Back in Arizona, every house has a backyard pool, but out here, they are few and far between.

When I finally arrived at Wen's place, she broke out the Grey's Anatomy Trivia game and pretended to know what we were doing. Suffice to say there was a lot of reading of the instructions and guessing at trivia which we really didn't know. I think Wen got one right though! When we had soaked up enough time with playing games, we headed into the living room and started to watch "Into the Wild" on her makeshift tv and tv stand, which could also be defined as a laptop and a cardboard box. To say it was awkward to watch the dvd on the laptop between the two of us, would be a far stretch. We closed blinds, twisted things, sank down into the couch until we were prone and still couldn't see half of it. Luckily, I had seen it before!

Wen was talking about some bubbles she'd bought and we struggled to get the bottle opened again so she could show me these awesome bubbles she kept raving about. However, between the two of us, we couldn't get the top off. It was stuck shut! I teased her about super glueing the lid shut just to trick me and she laughed and said no. We were going to ask Rob to help us get the lid off, but he was there and gone before either of us remembered to ask him. Finally after years of trying (and hitting it on the couch, and soaking it in running HOT HOT water) we finally got the top off and blew bubbles in the house. They smelled good and they made pretty bubbles, but I think Wen might have been deprived of bubbles as a child. *grin*

Wen fixed us yummy pot roast dinner and we ate and watched more of the movie. We each had a wine cooler and then moved back into the living room. I got to meet her betta, Juliuscesar and his friend the fake octopus. Very cute. I got to share half of the love seat with Simon the big Beagle, although I think really -he- shared his half of the seat with me. We talked about music and listened to Wen on the radio for a moment, because she made a goof and was djing at the wrong time and that made us laugh too. But its okay, because Wen is Everything that Rocks! and so she'll be alright. Unless the woman she kicked off the radio station is waiting for her tonight at the station with a baseball bat. *grin* I also confessed to Wen where I was taking her for my bday on Thursday. Yay! I can't wait.

Then I packed up my movie and headed back home, away from Wen's hick town, where the house right beside her has a couch on the front porch and the guy's name who lives there is Taters. No, really, you couldn't make this stuff up. On the other side of Wen's place is some kind of church. I have honestly never stopped long enough to see what kind of church. Ahhh, living in the country... it's the good life.

Much love,
