Happy birthday, Carina immaturity!
One year closer to being legal. :P
And late Happy Birthdays to:
Robert boberto518 and Kia serraasuka!
So, I've not been around much this past week. That's due to Clayton clay1124
being home on vacation for the week. I don't see him very often these days because he works like a madman and is now living in Baton Rouge with Crawford. They're such a cute little married couple. :P We've just been hanging out, running around town, and watching movies with nothing much else to do. In the past seven days I've seen Hairspray twice (last Friday and Monday / omglovelovelove), Elizabeth (because the second one looks awesome), 300 (Clay bought it because it was rented out everywhere), Hot Fuzz, Thursday night was 1408 (with Clay and John, which was a terrible movie), and Friday evening The Simpsons Movie (with Clay, John, and Ben). Spider pig, spider pig
, does whatever a spider pig does. Hahaha. That movie was hilarity in a jar. Or should I say dome? *G*
We hung out at BAM before the Simpsons and I managed to take a few pictures with my cell phone of ( the boys and my face. )
Saturday was the only day I didn't go anywhere, instead I spent the day cleaning house. :O Not something I really enjoy but as no one else is going to do it, I may as well attempt to keep it somewhat clean. I told my dad he should hire a maid to come every week or so just to get the "deep cleaning" it needs. I can sweep, mop, wash clothes, and do dishes and all but dusting and scrubbing and stinky chemicals is not my idea of fun. :/ But of course I still stayed up until 4:00 am. I got wrangled into joining in at thedressingroom
to celebrate beklagar
's Michael's birthday. I posted a few comments but haha RPing is so not for me. I'm all like "omg what am I supposed to do say what ohgod /dumb-awkward." But whatevs it's all for the love of Michael! Err, yeah... I ended up staying up that late reading the threads. 800+ comments at the time and now there are ~150 new comments that I need to catch up on. Whoo.
Woke up yesterday at a quarter to 8:00 to go to New Orleans with John, Ben, and John's little brother Micah. It started off rainy on the drive but it had all passed by the time we got into the city. We made it to the Riverwalk at 11:00 am before it was even supposed to open, so we just walked through, stopped at Brookstone where everyone ogled the crazy gadgets they have. We also witnessed a little girl on an exercise machine that was the most perverse thing I have every seen. Really. "Gallop" was one of the settings. I kid you not.
Anyway, we left and went play around in the French Quarter, ate at Rotolo's, visited a book store, antique shops, court yard sale, a sex shop called Second Skin (they had a gimp suite in the store and I had to try hard not to laugh when John was like "I don't want to know what that is" hahah), and the Market. I bought a new pair of sunglasses that better not break on me and nearly cried over a table stacked with vintage cameras in a junk shop. Wantwantwant. It was so damn hot. I thought I was going to die but managed to survive thanks to nipping in various shops to cool off. Oooh. Also saw a Catalina macaw! The poor baby was so hot and not restrained. :( Upon further research, it may have been a Harlequin macaw. It was some hybrid as it looked more like a B&G but it had a red/yellow-ish coloured tummy. Anyway, I'm sure no one but the bird lovers cares about this anyhow. :P( Picture time! )
We stayed in New Orleans until about 4:00-4:30 and finally made our way home. I was exhausted by the time I got home, so I cuddled with bird all intending to take about an hour nap or so. I stayed sleeping for about four hours instead. I woke up at 11:30, picked Sunny up (he was sleeping on my arm under the covers), was so sore it hurt to walk to the bathroom, and brushed my teeth, washed my face, and went back to bed. I slept until 10:00 this morning and got up and cleaned the kitchen and washed clothes.
I piddled all day and plan to clean my room, vacuum, and mop the kitchen and living room. My brother starts school tomorrow, so I won't have to worry about him until 2:30 pm. Niiice.
I got my coin purse in today! It's so cute. x3 Only thing I won't be able to put my credit cards and stuff in it because it's not wide enough. Bah. Student loan is supposed to post tomorrow and it'll be a week and a day until the next Remus Lupins concert and the Whomping Willows. :D Exictedddd. Though, I still have no idea what I'm going to do about staying the night in N.O. or just driving home at whatever time in the morning. I also need to get an inspection sticker as mine expired in July. Is it sad that I haven't truly driven my car since last Saturday? I mean, really.
OH! My sister and Dustin got engaged this past Wednesday. :D She asked me to be the maid of honor. xD I was a bit speechless and surprised that she asked me. Haha. I figured she'd go for one of her good friends or something but I don't know how all this wedding crap works anyhow. But I accepted of course, she probably would have killed me otherwise. And she basically said that she was forcing me to be the Godmother for the next child. :/ As long as I'm at least 30 by that time, I have no worries. I'll also be taking their engagement photos for them. So, wheee.
May have potential job for a media company here. POV magazine (which I've never seen or really heard much about) is the local free magazine that features places around town. They're always looking for photographers, so as soon as I stop being an idiot and remember to call to find out more about the job I'm going to go over there and see what the deal is. I don't know how that'll work with my upcoming school schedule, but it's a job! Considering my self funding method of selling prints of my photographs isn't going as well as I would like to have hoped.
meet-up last Saturday was mucho fun. I didn't even realize how late it was by the time we left. It was great seeing everyone and just hanging out for a few hours. *hugs*
I also have a story about going to Maurpas, Louisiana on Sunday with Chloe to visit her dad but I don't feel like getting into it. Needless to say, some people need to control their road rage and I hope that bitch got stopped and ticketed by the state police.
And that's it! I hope you all enjoyed or ignored this lovely RL post from me. Until next time. Ta. ♥EDIT:
OMG ahahah. Any Backstreet Boys fans? They have a new single out - youtube
. But Kevin's gone. :( They can't be the same without Kevin. /triesnottolaughJust for clarification:
I will not be leaving livejournal. While I do not agree with what LJ/6A is doing to their users by banning without so much as a chance for the user to explain or clarify things, I am lazy and don't feel like going through the hassle of relocating to a 'lesser' journaling site. Yes, I did make a greatestjournal account but until there is a definite move over it's just going to sit empty. I will set up syndication for this lj to post there (if I can figure out how / if it's available) but for the most part it'll just be a watcher journal.
I don't have a JF account, unless someone wants to give me one, and I don't feel it's necessary to make a IJ account whilst having GJ. So all in all, badly worded and what-not, I'm staying and will continue to be active on livejournal until a decision is come to and fandom moves, then and only then will I become active on whatever journaling site becomes home.
