I made Pocket choke on his ice cream cone. We were talking about my piercing and then he was giving me a bad time about leaving in December, so I said "I would only be staying here to get more piercings." Then he choked. You had to be there, but he likes my nose ring.

I have finally seen the Guru.

This crusty old guy told me I had a beautiful smile. It was unexpected and came at the right time. Because it caught me completely off guard and seemed genuine, it brightened my day.

Amazingly my piercing is a week old and it is doing well. I have managed to keep to the care instructions very well and no infections or anything. Go me!

I have been basically living off sushi and water. Granted it's sushi from the school bistro but hey it is better than some of the sushi at some of the restaurants around here.

This is awesome: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00geU9cjFG8&mode=related&search=

Thursday night was the premiere of the new season of CSI. My roommate invited my friend powerpuffboy to come watch it with us because he has no tv and really wanted to see if Sarah dies. (Sadly, she does not.) This irked me a little because even though he is my friend, and we were going to watch it anyway, and I really don't mind too much if he comes over, she asked him without asking me first. It shouldn't bug me but it does a little bit. He called me afterward to tell me that he left his sweatshirt there and if it would be ok if he left it there till another day. I, of course, said yes, and now because of it I have gotten to meet the girlfriend. She was in town today and he decided to pick up the sweatshirt. She is a very sweet girl and I am glad I finally got to meet her.

It is weird being back here because everyone I know is at a totally new place in their lives then they were last time I saw them. I see more people that I know then I have any other school year but in completely new contexts. Pocket isn't an RA anymore, now he is a complex director assistant. The DAs that stayed are no longer my coworkers. There are people I lived with their freshmen years (my sophomore, junior and 1st senior years) are in my classes and it is the first time I have seen them since we lived together. The list goes on and on.

Friday, Hoobie and I went to Spirit. I could have spent forever in there. I was having one of those "I'll take one of everything please" moments. I managed to leave with only on purchase of an $8 top hat. How we may never know. Halloween is truly my favorite holiday. I'm going back on Tuesday because they are getting a new shipment in.

I am a little bummed because this weekend was a Zombie walk, nudie sushi night, and Fetish night and, for various reasons, I had to miss them all.

Another reason to go back to Spirit. There is this guy that works there. Do I really need to add more details? He is the one that told me about the shipment coming in and the Zombie night. He also went out of his way to say bye to me when Hoobie and I left the store. I wonder what costume he will be wearing this time.

Hairball and I made it to Saturday Market. She bought a fabulous hat. There are pictures of the fabulous hat. One day I may finish uploading photos to facebook and flickr and you will be able to see them. Hopefully this will remain a standing appointment for us for the rest of the season.

On Sunday, I dragged my roommate out of our room because I was tired of watching her mope about with nothing to do. We went to the mall and I now own my first HIM t-shirt. It was the first one I have ever seen in my size. We also went to target and the movies. Target was more entertaining than it should have been. The toy section and the holiday section had me practically drooling and I was able to price flash drives. We also both finally got to see The Simpsons Movie. It was well worth the wait. I was singing spider pig all the way home.

For the HIM fans: There have been a bunch of good links to listen to radio interviews on Valo Daily. I would make links to them but I have a feeling that by the time I post this some of the links would be expired and it is a lot of work to post that many, so you will have to search on your own. But they are worth the search.

Life and Whatnot

Ok Tuesday I went music shopping armed with $40 in gift certificates. Shock and astonishment they actually had a copy of Venus Doom on the release date! I guess being good pays off sometimes (not really). I have listened to it once because I had too but I am waiting to give it the full attention it deserves and that I can't give it at the moment. The only thing I will say about it now is that If you are a Love Metal fan, you'll love it. If Dark Light is the best album in the world according to you, you'll hate it. I also bought Aerosmith by Aerosmith, Bam Margera Presents Viva la Bands vol.2, and The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us) by NOFX. My love for Aerosmith is well know so I am not going to explain that one. VLB v.2 I have been looking for since I heard it came out. I looked in new releases, I looked under V for various artists but I never thought to look under B for Bam (which is where I found it while looking for something else). It is an amazing collection but I have yet to watch the DVD that came with it. And I love NOFX. "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" is my favorite NOFX song. GSEW is the only album with "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" on it. Music shopping for me is a very serious buisness. I must carefully consider every album in the store and sort through my mental list of what I want, how bad I want it, and how to maximize my money. Because as much as I am obsessed with music I can't go shopping very often so I save up money (and gift certificates) to buy as much as I can in one sitting.
Wednesday was spent packing.
Today was spent moving in. It's kind of weird to be back. It is very weird to have a roommate again. It is also very weird not working at the area desk, but it was nice to find out they got nothing but love for me over there. I will go on tomorrow but for now I must go to bed because I am very tired and I have a job interview tomorrow morning.

Begginings 1/10

So I haven't posted in about two months. So I shall try to catch up in small increments.
Fan-girling and related activities
Well first and foremost HIM has been on my radar the most because they have been doing the Project Revolution tour and the new album is coming out and Ville was in rehab so I spent quite a bit of time catching up at [Unknown site tag] . There were tons of photos and article scans coming in.

When Project Revolution was in San Fransisco, Live 105 did an interview with HIM (well it was just Ville and Mige if I remember right), as well as a couple other bands. The Interviewer was, perhaps, an idiot. He could have been having an off day, but it made the interview entertaining. I don’t know if it is still on Live 105’s website or not.

As I told Hairball, I have been a very good girl. The Venus Doom album is coming out soon (today in the us, everywhere else earlier) and I have managed to avoid all of it. Ok, not all of it I did watch the "Kiss of Dawn" music video and I have been reading the magazine articles but that is it. I want it to be a surprise. I didn’t do any of those stupid games at heartagram. I didn’t listen to any of the music, officially leaked or otherwise. I downloaded nothing. I watched no videos (other than the Kiss of Dawn video of course) fan made, record company made, or of concerts where they were singing the songs. I avoided reading the lyrics when they were posted. I have been very patient. I have behaved myself. But if I have to wait until I am at school to buy the album I may cry…or at least speak harshly to a clerk.

There are three versions of the Venus doom album. I looked them all up to decide which I was going to buy. I decided the regular album would be the one I would spend my money on. The special edition just didn’t look like it was worth it. But we all know that once I know for absolute certain that I will have my job and if there is a way for me to get the special limited edition I will snap it up as though my very life depends upon it. But I am not holding my breath.

I also have a ticket to the concert in Portland. I even sort of have a plan on how I am going to get there and back, but hopefully I can find someone to go to the concert with me and create a better plan.

They played the SNL that Hugh Laurie hosted. Yay! *fangirl-like squeal* Ok, so I am a bit sad and pathetic, deal with it. It was awesome and I loved it, his accent, I got to see him in a dress, the opening monologue, it was worth not changing the channel.

I went to the Slow Children’s concert at the Hideaway. It was good. It was nice to get out. I saw a lot of people from high school that didn’t recognize me and I didn’t feel the need to reintroduce myself. I also saw my friend that I shall call here Spazzy. She is just as crazy as ever. We got to talk for awhile. I met a girl that I know only from myspace. She is from St. Louis but recently moved to the area. It was cool and creepy at the same time. I haven’t even seen her on myspace for a year or so. She recognized me from my old picture and I recognized her screen name. I bought a cd, danced with a total stranger, and spent a few hours at Hippiewoman’s house. All and all I think I had a pretty full evening. I even drank, perhaps, a little too much, eventually.

I have been trying to frame my autographed Bam pic since I got home. Right at the beginning of summer I found a frame that I was going to decorate to make it more…Bamesque, I suppose. But then I lost the bloody frame. I found another frame that actually looks almost exactly like what I wanted to do to the other frame. So I bought I and put Bam inside of it, but of course, what happened? I found the other frame. So now I have gone out and got most of the stuff I need to decorate it how I want and I will figure out what to do about the I have two frames for one pic thing later.

I have also been reading far too much slash and smut in general. And you thought there wasn't such a thing.

HELLO!!!!!!!!!!

Hi! I have only had internet since 1pm yesterday and I'm sooo happy, even though it is dial-up. It was such a pain because my mother was behind in payments, then they lost the check, on and on, so after several phone calls they hooked me up even though they couldn't find the check.
Let's see what have I been up to since I have been home...mostly unpacking. First I had to get all of my stuff out of the garage into the living room, then I had to get it from the living room into either my room or the attic. There is only one box still in the living room but I can't get around in my room. Its full of boxes. Each day is a new adventure. I never know what I am going to find whenever I open a box. Also, my mother was using my room for storage while I was away, so some of that stuff is still in here too. I have hooked up my answering machine because my mother's doesn't work right. I have also hooked up my dvd player. Did I mention my mother completely redecorated the house since I was home last? I'm still getting used to it. I have watched seasons 1-3 plus all the bonus material of Viva la Bam. I even found some hidden bonus footage on the bonus dvd for seasons 2&3. I also watched HIM vs Bam. So now my mother is a Bam fan. Its kinda scary. She wants me to write him a letter for her. I should have seen this coming when she had me tape Unholy Union. I have been doing all the cooking. I have started Hairball's Helldone snowman costume. There was a couple of exciting trips to the post office. My mother only checks the mail about once a month when I am not home so the box was packed. My Revolver magazine came (yay Ville poster) and my Spin magazine came (not so exciting). Also my Origins of Abstract Art professor sent me my paper and final. I got Bs on both of them! Yay! The paper is especially exciting because it was supposed to be 6-8 pages and mine was only a little over 3. And I used to be such a good student. My mother has been working 14 hour days lately (big surprise) because she has 3 new employees and the football camp is in town. So I have been nice and not strangled her when she makes mean comments about me. Hell, I even gave her a back rub the other day without complaint. But those boys are leaving Thursday morning and then all bets are off. The turf war over the bathroom has already begun. She thinks she can get away with telling me I can't have any space for my things in the bathroom after she has already promised me a shelf and a drawer. Just wait! I also have been going over my photos in my computer because this weekend (I think) we are having prints made. Today I had a dentist appointment. Apparently I have a new dentist, again. I haven't met him yet though. At least I got the hygienist I like this time. The bad part is though part of one of my teeth broke off when she was cleaning it. Oh well, it was a tiny piece of one of the ones that is cracked from when I got smacked. Its ok. Well, I must got plan for tomorrow is my hostile take over of the bathroom.

Ok I didn't mean for it to be so long inbetween entries.

Friday was crap.
Saturday was amazing. We took PowerPuffBoy to the mall and bought him a new dress and make up. Then we took him back to Hairball's room and made him pretty. Afterward we took him out to lunch. When we were finished with lunch we took him back to Hairball's room and cleaned him up. After we got him unpretty again he came back to my room and whined for 3 hours about something completely unrelated. Then I went to dinner with Hairball and when I checked my mail box, behold I had a package! From Canada no less. It was my amazing present from Martini. There may have been some squealing involved.
Sunday was crap.
Monday I noticed that in the hallway was a used condom that was still there from Saturday. It was also sushi night! Ok it wasn't as fabulous as promised but hey it was still sushi, even if it was from CostCo. They had also bought a bunch of Pocky and Korean candy and strawberries. There was also a movie but I couldn't stay because I had to go to work and write my awful paper for Islamic art and Architecture.
Tuesday RN and I noticed that my spectacular bruise from last Thursday is the same size as her fist. We decided that she comes into my room at night and beats me (she really doesn't).
Wednesday my profesor decided that the bonus class to make up for her absenses is madatory as the information in it will be on the final. We will be given extra credit for showing up. To accomidate everyone she is haveing three different classes instead of just having one and not putting the info on the final. So basically I can miss the last staff meeting at work or I can screw up my Tuesday. I also finally got my midterm back that everyone "failed. " I got a 79%. I'm not really worried. I also spent and extra hour making my paper look exactly like she wanted it to because she said if I screw up any of the formating she is docing 5% of my grade on it right off the bat. So my paper sucks but its pretty. Better yet it got turned in on time. But I decided to ignore all of that for time being because it was Sweet Life Buffet Night!! You cannot describe the experience of eating a pastry from Sweet Life. There are no words. We got 8 cakes, and assortment of brownies (they even got the black and white ones, my favorite), and some giant chocolate chip cookies. Afterwards I went to RN's to study for our final. It was an interesting experience. Her boyfriend was there to study too because technically he is in the class he just hasn't shown up for one since week 4. I also forgot that RN's room is were everyone hangs out so there were many other people there doing many other things but it was good session. It ended at 1:30 am.
Today was my History of Photography final. I did well on it. I also got my second paper back. I think I am the first person who Ville Valo has gotten them an A on an Art History paper. I loved my mother's reaction. She said "you should e-mail him and tell him that." Right, I'll get right on that mom. I also had my review for Origins of Abstract Art class. Have I told you how much I hate that class?
I was also sad to hear of vagueangel's passing. I didn't know her but she wrote good stories and seemed like a nice person. She will be missed.

Yesterday I decided that I have to see Aerosmith in concert sometime. So, I played around their website and they are touring but its a world tour, so that's not going to happen. But just for fun I decided to do the annual "Let's pretend I'm going to do something awesome for my birthday" game. I checked to see if they had any tour dates on my birthday, they don't but they have one two days after, (close enough),...in Helsinki. So just for giggles I decided to see what this would cost me. Basically, Martini and I would have to magically come up with about $2000 to go. Yes, I said Martini and I because if i went to Helsinki without her she would kill me. Oh yeah and that doesn't cover little details like food and lodging. Thats just plane tickets and a concert package, (hey this is my fantasy, why stop at just tickets?). Last year, I was looking up same day one way tickets to German and they were only about half that. There is a summer study abroad program in Helsinki...XD. The best part about this whole story is that when I told my mother and Hairball they both told Bam related stories in response. My mom's story is a bit boring to relate, it was just about a kid wearing a Viva la Bam shirt when he came in for lunch and Hairball's was a really bizarre dream that I'm not even going to try to tell you. But I thought it was funny that's how they both responded.
Today, my hair dye came in the mail. Yay! So I bought some bleach so that is what I am doing tomorrow. I also helped Brit out at the desk today for about an hour and a half when I went to go get dinner. I also finally have a third paper topic. So now I must go and get ready for work.

More on the continuing Unholy Union Saga...
So, as you know not only am I watching the show (stop laughing this instant!), I am taping it for my mom, somewhat unsuccessfully. I was waiting for all four episodes, in order, to replay, so, I could re-tape them, in order and completely, before the next episode came on. After my TV guide failed me three times, I went to MTV.com to look at their tv schedule and I finally got them taped! So right now I am taping the latest episode, hopefully I am not taping over anything.

Ok, I guess I do have an opinion like everyone else. I feel slightly embarrassed that I even felt the need to weigh in on the issue but it seems to be everywhere and I didn’t want to start a fight to I decided to post it on my journal instead of commenting on a community post. But I find my caring about celebrities slightly embarrassing so I put it under a cut.
I don't even know why I care. It's not even any of my business and since when did I become the little jackass' PR rep? )
On a lighter note:
After all of that shit Bam gave Missy over her wedding dress this is what he wore at the wedding:

I'd start a whole new rant about that but I don’t have the energy (lucky you).

Youtube has been cleaning house and we know what that means...we all had to say good bye to some of our little friends. I've kind of become obsessed with youtube because at work there isn't much to do between midnight and 8am, except play on the computer and now we can't play with youtube anymore at work. So I've become extra obsessed. In memory of some of my favorite youtube videos that are no longer with us, I have made a tribute...under a cut:
RIP )
