Jen has been here twice now. The first time was to help clean out the house up the river and go through her old stuff. It was kinda fun and kinda sad. We spent so much time together it was like, even though it was her stuff, that we were throwing away parts of both of our childhoods. It also reminded me that we don’t spend enough time together anymore, not that it is really possible to spend much time together. We have changed so much in the last 4 years. I feel so disconnected. We spent nearly every day together for 18 years and now we only see each other a couple of times a year. We both knew it was going to happen. But it doesn’t make it any less sad. But we always fall into our weird pattern. She brought me my birthday present, which was a pair of beautiful earrings. She also brought me Shakespeare festival chocolates and mints. I shall have to figure out something really good for her birthday…and actually send it to her on time for a change. I also managed to inherit her Garfield books. The second time she came down, she brought the boyfriend, meaning I got meet him…finally. He is a very nice man and I approve, not that it really matters if I approve. Although I would like to think that my opinion still got some weight, but she has been dating him for awhile and he moved to Chicago not long after the visit so its kind of a moot point.
While Jen and I were cleaning out her old toys we decided that my obsession with My Little Ponies as a child may be responsible for my obsession with tattoos now.

I wasn't feeling well today but I had a party anyway. My mother decided to try to have the most stereotypical birthday party ever. There was cake, ice cream, food, a balloon, party favors, and most importantly people. There was no real theme. We had purple paper plates and rainforest themed paper plates. We had ice cream dishes that looked like ice cream cones. On the cake were candles that looked like cupcakes as well as candles that were on the end of sticks that looked like stars and two 2s. There were also Shrek characters on my cake. It was a Garfield balloon. For food we had pasta salad and veggies. My sister came with her 13 year old daughter and her friend. We had fun playing with the party favors. They were bubble blowers of various types with scented bubbles, kazoos shaped like lips, and water pistols. They got me a flower for my birthday. My grandmother and aunt came as well. My grandmother is the only one that drank the beer, even though she was complaining about it the whole time. They got me a Fred Meyer gift card and my grandmother made me a pillow. Another aunt stopped by because she just happened to be in town to get everyone's mailing addresses because my cousin is getting married to his girlfriend of 7 years. Later we went to my aunt and uncle's house to see my aunt and uncle that were visiting. While we were there we had to move some cars. By moving cars I mean the following: we had to get a pick-up onto a cement slab. First we had to move a mini van out of the way because it and a trailer that cannot be moved were blocking the pick-up in. The mini van doesn't run and has a flat tire. After we pushed the mini van out of the way, we pushed the pick-up (that also doesn't run) forward, then back so it could make the turn. Then we pushed it around the mini van and up the hill onto the cement slab. Then we had to move the mini van back to where it was in the first place. Then mom and I went home.
Mom got me a fish for my birthday. He is a red veil tail Betta. The shop had several kinds of Bettas including one that was white with red and blue tipped fins. He looked like a firework display. I didn't get him because the pale ones bother me. I always think they look like they are sick. I am thinking about naming my new fish Inuyasha because he is red and feisty and it would drive Hairball nuts. But right now we are calling him NuNu (short for No Name).

Well my birthday was rather quiet. Big surprise. I did get a bunch of phone calls and facebook messages. That's much better then usual. Mom gave me a bunch of gift cards and a cake. Although my grandmother did spill the beans that I have a surprise birthday party tomorrow. Well, it is going to be my mom, sister, her two kids, my aunt, my great aunt and my grandmother standing around watching me open greeting cards (at best) and eating leftover cake from today. I don't know if that qualifies as a party but it is the best I can hope for. No I'm not disappointed. It is better than most years. I usually don't even get that much. Last year was awesome but it was my 21st. My dad took me to dinner tonight. We went to the Onion Grill because Lee's is no more. It was good. He even set up to have the staff bring me a chocolate mousse and sing me happy birthday. It was oddly sweet. It wasn't embarrassing like it is some places and no one has ever done that for me before. Frankly if someone wants to impress me or make me happy on my birthday the bar has been set very low. It was good to hear from Jenny I haven't heard from her in forever. Last night before I went to bed I got some tv reception on NBC and it was a Late Night with Conan O'Brien in San Fransisco with Robin Williams promoting License to Wed. Hairball would have loved it. Also mom forgot to put the garbage out last night and I remembered when I heard the garbage truck coming down the street. So I ran out at 2am and put the garbage out.
In honor of partying, or lack there of I decided to put together a top list:
Most played cds in my cd case (in no particular order):
Anything by Aerosmith
"Buckcherry" by Buckcherry
"Super Colossal Smash Hits of the 90s; The Best of the Mavericks" by The Mavericks
"Take a Break" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
"Shoot the Bingo Caller" by Slow Children
Anything by HIM
"Before You Were Punk" by various artists
Remember this list changes often

So much for finishing anything. The only thing I did today was work on my charm bracelet. It was like pulling teeth to get the parts away from my mother last night. I don't know what it is but she has this thing about me being in possession of my own jewelry. She also gets really upset if anyone other than her works on my broken or jewelry that is in pieces. She has no time to work on them and its my jewelry why can't I work on putting it back together? Anyway, it is all really tiny pieces that require tiny sharp tools. I spent 3 hours just to get one charm on. I'm not even close to getting all my charms on. I am also still looking for some. I made brownies today too. They were awful. They were made from this weird mix. Even mom didn't like them. She suggested soaking them in Cognac and setting them on fire.
I only set off 2 fireworks tonight. So sad I know. It isn't a whole lot of fun alone. This is also the first year we have had to buy fireworks in about 8 years. The ones mom got were kind of lame. She got a giant box of spinners, and 2 boxes of screaming fountains, and these weird crackling things. In the back yard we have this big cement slab. I lit off one of the crackling things in the middle of it and the whole slab was not enough to contain it. And I hate those screaming fountains. At least the neighbor kids had fun. They have been lighting off fireworks for a couple days now and they are still at it. It is the first time in a long time we have had kids in the neighborhood. Most of them had moved away or were over 16 by the time I was 8. Its kinda cool really. There are several of them and they all play instruments, including the drums, all night long. And they have dogs that bark. They run around the neighborhood like crazy people. The oldest, she is 13 or 14 I think, has blue hair and seems to always be wearing ripped tights whenever I see her in town. Its almost like life has been breathed into the neighborhood. Too bad they are moving.
I'm surprised my dad didn't call because he said he would call before my birthday and my birthday is tomorrow and he hasn't called.
And no tv was coming in at all today. The better the weather, the worse the tv comes in. So I finished season 5 of Viva la Bam and watched it again with the commentary. Mom even likes it with the commentary. She asks a lot of questions and comments while we are watching but they are all valid. Like "where is that guy from?" (Jussi from 69 Eyes) or "Wow they have a lot of music on there" (watching the credits). I am just babbling now. I also watched Jane Eyre (George C. Scott and Susanah York)and OF Human Bondage (Betty Davis). I suppose I will stop boring you now and maybe I go to bed like a normal person.

Today I got off my ass and applied somewhere. Their exact response was "she'll [the person who does the hiring] call you when she sees it [my application]. So I have no idea if they are going to give me a job or not. Today was also my niece's birthday. She is officially a teenager. Yay. Mom and I went to her party at grandma's house. Technically she is my sister's grandmother but I still call her grandma. It was exactly as one would expect it to be but I got to see grandma, my sister, my sister's dad, my nephew and my brother-in-law and I haven't seen any of them since I got home. I saw my niece when she hit us up for cans for a can drive to raise money so one of their friends can have brain surgery. I'm kinda bummed that I lost all of my greeting cards. Last August there was a sale on greeting cards so I stocked up for the year and now I can't find them. I was also disappointed to find out that my niece, sister and brother-in-law all owe my nephew money. I am a tad protective of him. I am also slightly shocked that not only does my brother-in-law have a job but he has actually managed to keep it for a few weeks. My sister's dad is also selling his car for a very reasonable price. Its a 79 Corvette T-Top. I won't be buying it but it would be sweet. If I did buy it my sister would also kill me. I also FINALLY got to listen to Euro Rock Radio for the first time since I have been home. Well I listened the best I could. Have you ever tried listening to online radio on dial-up? The first night I tried but we had no internet and later I found out it was HIM night. Then the next Tuesday it was the day of silence. SERIOUSLY GO TO http://www.savenetradio.org/ AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD. DON'T LET THE MUSIC DIE.
Also the sound on Fox was still out today, so I finished watching season 4 of Viva la Bam and then watched it again with the commentary on. Then I started watching season 5. Later I may watch Jane Eyre with George C. Scott and Sussanah York and Of Human Bandage with Betty Davis. Hopefully tomorrow I will finish cleaning my room or something so I feel like I actually accomplished something. Maybe I'll even find out I have a job. Considering it's the 4th tomorrow I doubt it. I didn't think about that when I applied.

Today was very exciting. Ok maybe it was only exciting to me. First this morning My mom and I ran by my aunt and uncle's to get a photo cd to print later. This is the first time I have gotten to see my uncle in months. Then I had internet time at the library. I used it to work on my myspace page. It's still not how I want it. Then my mother remembered that my uncle (a different one) was in the paper (not local). Which is very bizarre because he tends to be a bit under the radar. It was also bizarre because it wasn't the court report. Apparently he has written a play and it is being performed. I want to talk more about how excited I am about it and everything but I really shouldn't. I'm very surprised he agreed to the interview and that he allowed to have his picture in the paper. He is very paranoid and very good at staying hidden from people (and the government) and he knows people are looking for him. But then again maybe he has taken care of all of that. Then I went off to go print more pictures. They were more graduation pictures and pictures of my baby cousin. He is just starting to try to walk. I keep wanting to call him my nephew. He might as well be. Mom and I had lunch at the beach. It is tourist season so we go down and sit in the car watching them, and laugh. The cool part was that there was a bunny! He was just hanging out with the squirrels. I think I got a picture. I couldn't get very close and I haven't downloaded the pictures yet. After our little adventure at the beach, my mother drove us to the animal shelter. We looked at kitties. We adopted none. It is very difficult to find the right cat, and we are going to have to find out more about them first. They were all very friendly. And there were several that were very playful. Only two attached themselves to me. One of them I like very much but I am afraid she might be too needy and the other was bit of a bully. They only let us look at the adult cats today. Mom is talking about getting an adult and a kitten. That makes it a bit harder. There is also a timing issue. The rest of the day was pretty boring. We cleaned and my dad called. He wanted to remind me that my grandmother's birthday was yesterday and that mine is Thursday. I guess I should charge my cell phone and give her a call.

With all of my packing and cleaning I have decided to do a little mental house keeping. As you know I try to update fairly regularly but there are times I'm just not up to it for various reasons. That doesn't mean I didn't write an entry though, it just means it didn't get posted. I write on the bus all the time, (something I am really going to miss). So I have all of these un-posted entries cluttering up my mind, so I have decided over a period of time I am going to post them along with or instead of a regular entry until they are gone. So in the spirit of spring cleaning I am going to give you a brief preview of entries that are not getting posted but won't leave me alone anyway. Lucky you.

Forgotten Birthdays: I managed to miss both my great-grandmother's (101) and my oldest nephew's (17) birthdays this year.

The Erin Go Braughless party. This was part of my horrible St. Patrick's day I just refuse to relive it no matter how bad it haunts me.

My birthday is less then a month away. If I get another bath set I will scream.

I think I have said this before but I have heard that smoking can make your penis shrink a 1/2 an inch. There was a several page ramble to go with this but I think I will spare you unless you want to hear about it.

I had a massive debate on Ritz cracker cheese sandwiches vs. Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches. All you need to know is that peanut butter won. (Sorry Tini)

Most of you know I read a lot of Slash, so I had this long discussion about slash pairing names. To sum it up, even though it is not a pairing I read, my favorite pairing name is Dumb.(Dunn/Glomb)

Him is officially everywhere. I saw a wannabe Ville clone in Brookings over spring break.

Fangirling fangirls: I was going to gush over my favorite fanfic authors and fandoms but then I decided that it would just be better to try and stop being horribly shy and just come out of the lurking closet. Still working on that one.

This video disturbed me greatly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xEXfgjqtG8

My father has been watching the Riches (he has a thing for Minnie Driver) and he is convinced that Eddie Izzard used to go by Eddie Izzardo.

German guilt: This was a rather long rant about how my German speaking skills have gone to hell and that the only thing I use them for is trying to read through interviews in music mags and translating things for Hairball.

The Sharpie incident. See "The Erin Go Braughless party" above.

I had a very long rant trying to explain Ville Valo's mustache. The short version is "when you turn 30, you grow a mustache. It is something guys do."

I was going to sing the praises of valo_daily but it pretty much speaks for itself.

I was going to talk about all the disturbing commercials that have been appearing lately but I have been talking about them on and off for a while so I don't see the point in doing an entire post about them.

Islamic art and Architecture class was torture for many reasons, one was a certain individual that I may have a crush on. This is just too ridiculous to discuss further.

On Saturday I was running around getting ready to leave. I said good bye to everyone. When I was at my aunt's I found out that she will be a tribal elder on her birthday. On top of my errands I also went to the pirate shop, where i would spend far too much of my money if given the opportunity. I also went to a couple galleries. I am very fond of the work of Mary Amarcillo (I am very sorry if i spelt her name wrong), especially her pastel cats, Nancy Tuttle, Horst Wolf, and Liz James. I have to say though that my new favorite artist is Destiny Schwartz. Her work is on display at Eye for Art Gallery. She works in multiple mediums. The first piece I saw was a table Entitled "Hey Diddle Diddle." I really loved it. Then I saw a group of miniature sculptures that I just fell in love with. They also just happened to be by her, as well as some fascinating prints. Mom said some of her work reminded her of mine. If only I was that good. I also finally got my sister's package sent off AGAIN. This thing has been to Texas, Brookings, Eugene, and back to Brookings again. This time it is going to Arizona and lets hope it stays there. I also tried Ben and Jerry's Black and Tan ice cream. OMG! It is delicious.
Sunday was spent sleeping in the car as mom drove, as always. She was freaking out because we lost and hour somewhere. So then we went to lunch and grocery shopping and then she left. I took another nap. I called her and asked what time it was because if the clock in the car was right my clock was wrong. Apparently when mom was cleaning the car she accidently pushed the a clock setting button and changed the hour. So she freaked out and didn't do the shopping she wanted for nothing and who knows if she will ever be able to make it up here again before I move.
Today was my first day of classes. I had 1. It was at 8:30 in the morning yay. It was Islamic art and architecture. I then went out an bought the books for the class because we have a huge assignment due on wed. Then I took another nap. Cause Its my first day back at work! yay! And they still haven't figured out how to do mail right yet. Come on people! On the plus side there was an thank you note from Annie in my in box and people seem to enjoy their little surprise presents from me. No one know its was me! Except of course the people that ask me and can read my signature.

On an unrelated side note Elton John is now 60.

Well back to the insanity.

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.

So this weekend was my mom's birthday. She is very sensitive about it. Amazingly, she ended up having a good time. She got my card on time but not my present. At work the announcer announced my mother's birthday and age every hour on the hour and then whenever she felt like it. The people my mom works with made her up a big gift basket of random stuff, which my mom ended up likening. They also make her a t-shirt and a cake. Even the truck driver that she always flirts with gave her a present. After work, Jen's mom and my aunt took her to dinner, drinks, and a concert, which amazingly enough my mother also liked. My mother is in just absolute shock that she enjoyed her birthday and I’m very happy for her. The next day she went to dinner with my sister (the oldest one, the only one that counts, duh.) I have yet to hear how that went.
Jen also finally got her video that I made her for her birthday (its only about 4 months late). She likes it very much and I’m very glad.
I’ve taken up watching Star Trek in the mornings 'cause I’m awake and there is nothing else on at 6 am on a Saturday except old Star Trek. This week they had intergalactic hippies on the show, which I found highly amusing and have no idea why I’m telling you.
Only 4 more hours till I get off work.

Winter term

Tue, Feb. 6th, 2007 03:07 am
spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Default)
Almost there. This term I’m trying to take it easier. I'm only working overnights now, so work isn’t interfering with class and I only have to work 2 days a week, but I still get my 16 hours. It’s still kind of bad though because few of the new people are doing the job right and it’s driving the returnees and my boss nuts. For classes I’m taking Michelangelo to Bormini, Medieval Studies, and Classical Greek Art. Michelangelo to Bormini is a Roman renaissance Architecture art history class. If I had known it was an architecture class, I would have never taken it, but I cant drop it, so I’m just dealing with it. It's taught by this odd retired British guy. I really liked him and then I hated him but now he is growing on me so we shall see how the term goes. Medieval studies is a new art history class, (that has the longest course description ever), that has never been taught before and I’m taking it from the same professor that I took gothic sculpture from last term, but she is doing a lot better this term. She also volunteered to be my advisor, which helped me out a lot so now it looks like I’m graduating at the end of fall 2007 instead of spring 2008. I’m really liking that class so far. Classical Greek art is not really one of my favorite subjects (to say the least) but it is being taught by SuperProf so it’s not too bad. I really like his teaching style and they way he grades, so I might do ok, especially since I am familiar with the way he works. There have only been a couple of highlights this term. One was VeniceBiatch's Tattoo. I went with her when she was getting estimates and I was there when she got it. She ended up getting it at the Parlor instead of HP. Hp is the best when it comes to piercings but they are not the friendliest when it comes to tattoos. The tat is of the ghost ship off a Decembrists album on her butt. Its huge! (The tat not her butt) When we were driving around with Wikkid when she was getting estimates he played one of his cds for me. (He is a DJ) He had a couple mashups I liked. One was lady sovereign/eurhythmics and the other was Madonna/Death Cab for Cutie. The other highlight was DonJohn's birthday party. He turned 20 and his mom got him a room on the VIP floor of the Hilton. So he had a pool party then we all hung out in his room. It was pretty awesome. I met some new people. Even hairball was social-able and had a good time. I was really surprised when TopHatBoy got really excited when he found out I have a deviant art page. I got to know The Rev a lot better and I even danced with him a little. Hairball is teasing me a bit though cause I was switching my time between two boys and they were flirting back and I never do anything like that. Fun was had by all. We left around 11 and we made the Rev take a cab with us cause we didn’t want him walking home alone in the dark, and he lives by us.

Summer Break

spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Default)
Ok so I'm playing at little catch up at the moment. This summer was largely uneventful. Most of it was spent hanging out with Martini; shopping, playing video games, going to movies, etc. I also babysat her birds for a day. I turned 21 this summer. For my birthday Jen got me tickets to a show (Five Guys Named Moe) at the cab she works at and we then went bar hopping. She was the only one to get me a cake ( hostess cupcake with a votive candle on it). I also went to my grandmother's for a week, which has become the norm. When i'm there mostly i sit around and watch tv and talk with her while doing different crafts. Maybe ill post pictures. While i was there my aunt took me to Multnomah Falls, Bridge of the Gods, Cascade Locks and Vista House. Later Jen and I made a 3 day run to Hairball's house, which was pretty awesome. I would go into more detail but that was so long ago no one cares.
