Bear with me, been a while since I've memed. =) And I can already see that this is going to be heavily Adult-Swim biased, because that's more or less the only (fictional) thing Cody and I can agree on. (We also watch a lot of MythBusters and other non-fictional sorts of TV, and rarely ever watch movies.) Oh, and I'm including books. So nyeah. =P

Fandom Meme 2009

For length, and slight slashiness. )

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I was tagged by [ profile] kitty0_o , even though I only HAVE six icons. Lulz.

I don't know why I even HAVE more than one, because I always use this one, lol. It says "I have come to consider myself...a restless Eowyn...awaiting my Faramir." I made it up and had [ profile] thehobbitwaffle make it for me, since I didn't have the resources at the time. And now that I think about it, I should probably drop it entirely, 'cause it's really not true anymore.

Now that's a mouthful, Clive, and no mistake. (His middle name was Staples, if you didn't know. If my middle name was Staples, I would answer to it.)

Hobbity found this for me on the wider interwebs and posted it on DLBE for my use. It was my avatar there for a while (I change it out over there) and has been one of my LJ icons ever since I figured out I could have more than one.

Again...self-explanatory. I don't think this was meant to be an icon, IIRC it was the thumbnail for a t-shirt bearing this design. Lol. (And no, I don't think I'd actually wear the t-shirt. In public.)

Hobbity made a series of these "LiveJournal:" icons, and I requested that she make this one in the same style. I loves it. I suppose technically, now, Facebook would be the thinking person's MySpace. But Facebook wasn't around back then. (And yes, I have this icon displayed ON MY MYSPACE. XD)

This is the first panel of Kimono's Townhouse episode 122. It came out eleven days before Cody and I got together officially. I made the icon in anticipation. ^_^

1. How do you feel about the second to last person you kissed? The second-to-last person to kiss me on the cheek is kinda douchey. Like, not in a "OMG I never want to see him again" way, but in a "huh, what was I thinking in getting that close?" kinda way.

rena_librarian: (Default)
1) What curse word do you use the most? I don't keep track, lol, but I'd be willing to bet it's shit, since I alternate between "what the fuck?" and "what the hell?" depending on the company.
2) Do you own an iPod? No. MP3 player, yes, iPod, no.
3) Who on your Myspace "Top 8" do you talk to the most? Nico, Robert, Shelly, and Cody--not necessarily in that order.
4) What time is your alarm clock set for? IDK. Probably like 10 or 11.
5) What color is your room? White. The downside of apartment life.

Take your pick
6) Flip flops or sneakers? Sneakers. Flipflops drive me more than a little crazy, and not at all in a good way.
7)Would you rather take the picture or be in it? Depends on how good it turns out!
8) What was the last movie you watched? Uhh...Nico and I watched about a third of Sahara the other day while channel-surfing.
9) Do any of your friends have children? Well yeah.
10) Has anyone ever called you lazy? I think I won Sluggard of the Week once at camp. I don't think I ever mentioned that to my parents.
11) Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster? My mother tried that when she first began to understand that I was legitimately having insomnia. She quit when she realized that no matter what she gave me, or how much, I couldn't get up before noon.
12) What CD is currently in your CD player? I don't think I have a functioning CD player set up in the house. (Well, I guess the PS2 and the DVD player...but still.)
13) Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk? It depends, but regular milk on the whole.
14) Has anyone told you a secret this week? I hear a lot of secrets. I am what society calls a Good Listener.
15) Have you ever given someone a hickey? Lol no.
16) Who was the last person to call you? Cody. =)
17) Do you think people talk about you behind your back? Nico tells me they do, but I'm not sure I believe him. Even if they do, I don't care.
18) Did you watch cartoons as a child? Lol. Sometimes I still do. But only the good ones.
19) How many siblings do you have? Four. Five if you count the dead one.
20) Are you shy around the opposite sex? My initial shyness is directly proportional to my attraction.
21) What movie do you know every line to? Lol, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. And I bet you all thought I was going to say Lord of the Rings.
22) Do you own any band t-shirts? One, and I got it at a yard sale--I didn't actually go to the concert in question. =(
23) What is your favorite salad dressing? Ew, salad.
24) Do you read for fun? Fucking right.
25) Do you cry a lot? I pretty much never cry, and rarely because I feel "touched." I will cry if you piss me off.
26) Describe yourself in one word. Succinct.
27) Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop? Laptop.
28) Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoo? I'm toying with the idea of getting a cartilage piercing in my left ear, but I know I'm only considering it because it'd be free, which makes me think that it's a bad idea. As far as tattoos--if it's meant to be, the perfect design will occur to me. Until then it's just kind of a back-burner "someday" kind of thing.
29) What is the weather like? Too. Fucking. Hot.
30) Would you ever date someone covered in tattoos? I dated Brandon...he had like 8...and got another one right after he dumped me.
31) Is sex before marriage wrong? Yes.
32) When was the last time you slept on the floor? When I went to Branson to try on my bridesmaid dress.
33) How many hours of sleep do you need to function? Depends on how long and how well I have to function. Left to my own devices I'll usually sleep about 8-9 (and mostly during daylight hours, lol), unless I've been extremely deprived.
34) Are you in love or lust? Neither,'s too soon to say.
35) Are your days full and fast-paced? Surprisingly, considering I still have no job.
37) How old will you be turning on your next birthday? 23. GAWD I feel old.
38) Are you picky about spelling and grammar? Incredibly, other than dangling prepositions (Nico's picky enough for the both of us there), but I like Cody's answer!
=> I try to keep it as correct as possible, but it doesn't bother me when others don't (it makes me feel smart).
39) Have you ever been to Six Flags? My siblings have lived in St. Louis for over ten years and have still totally failed to take me--even when I would've bought my own ticket. =(
40) Do you get along better with the same or opposite sex? It's really more intelligence level than gender that determines how well I'll get along with someone.
41) Do you like Cottage Cheese? I happen to be eating some right now, as a matter of fact.
42) Do you sleep on your side, tummy, or back? Generally on one side or the other. I have to be dead tired to sleep on my stomach (and I usually wake up with something out of whack) and if I'm on my back it feels like I should be doing something else.
43) Have you ever bid for something on eBay? Yeah. Apparently I can only win if it's for someone else, though, lol.
44) Do you enjoy giving hugs? Depends.
45) What song did you last sing out loud? IDK. I think it was "Baby Got Back" when they played it at the club last week. Possibly something when I was playing Rockband all by my lonesome while I did laundry...on Tuesday, lol.
46) What is your favorite TV show? LOST!
47) Which celebrity dead or alive would you want to have? Elijah Wood! ^_^
48) Last time you had butterflies in your stomach? IDK. I've been on so many interviews that it doesn't really bug me anymore. Probably when Cody called me and the phone rang in front of my mother.
49) What one thing you wish you had? A fucking JOB already.
50) Favorite Lyrics? Ah geez, I've never in my life been able to pick a favorite song. There's a good fifteen choices running through my head already and I haven't even really THOUGHT about it.

"I wanna take you away
Let's escape into the music, DJ let it play
I just can't refuse it
Like the way you do this
Keep on rockin' to it
Please don't stop the, please don't stop the
Please don't stop the music."
~~Rihanna, Please Don't Stop the Music

"I'm your late night head rush
Ace high royal flush
Red velvet orange crush
You just don't impress me much
A glossy, double cover spread
Opened up inside your head
A black cherry paradise
Half the sugar, twice the spice
I don't wanna treat you nice
Come on baby roll the dice!"
~~Josie and the Pussycats (from the movie), 3 Small Words

"And now you're somewhere out there with a
I hate you why are guys so lame
Everything I gave you, I want everything back but you!"
~~Avril Lavigne, Everything Back But You

"It's just a crush I'm feeling
Walking on the ceiling
My whole world's upside down
It's just a crush, I know it
Don't know where it's goin'
But I like it where we are right now
It's too soon to be too much
I'm not ready to call it love
It's just a crush, crush."
~~Lila McCann, "Crush"

Mom might get to go home tomorrow. Her blood thinness number has to get up (yes, up) to 2.0 and it was 1.59 earlier today. They'd really like to see it hit 2.5 but it's climbing verrrry slowly so they're probably going to settle for 2.0. They upped her meds, though, so they're hoping she'll be ready to go tomorrow. I know she's bored and wants to leave (which is why I've been going there whenever I get up and staying until she goes to sleep--7-9 hours every day), lol, so here's hoping.

I find it slightly frightening that A) I'm incredibly comfortable inside the hospital, even though I've never stayed in one, and B) I don't have to find my way around a large portion of the patient room areas or public areas, I know the hospital's layout. Even though it's been the same since I was born there, it bugs me that I've spent that much time there.

And now, a meme gacked from David on MySpace, and then sleep. Night!

I think I mentioned I got my address labels (printed correctly this time!) and filed away the books I've purchased since I moved in. I realized that I did, in fact, buy the second edition of the New York Times Crossword Dictionary.

Your Ice Cream Personality:

You are not a particularly modest person. You're proud of who you are, and you don't care who knows it.

You are incredibly cautious. You rather miss out on something than make a mistake. No one would ever call you wild... but they would call you responsible.

You are a fairly open minded person with a wide range of tastes. You are quite accepting of unusual ideas and people.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You are a serious and contemplative person. You definitely do your own thing in life.

Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

Still alive, still seeking recepta-wench job.

Got my stimulus check. Does anyone else think that sounds dirty? Just me? Okay then.

FINALLY ordered checks (with, like, ten left...but then again, I started with 50 in October). LotR checks again FTW! And they had a special deal, $5 off if you ordered a matching checkbook cover and address labels...and the power of Elijah Wood was too hard to resist. ^_^ I needed address labels ANYWAY.

Going to Shelly's bachelorette party tomorrow. YAY.

Going to LynnDee's graduation tonight. That's two in a week, Jared and Dena's was on Monday.

Gotta rocket.
rena_librarian: (Default)
you are lightcyan

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is very low - you have better things to do than jump headfirst into every little project. You make sure your actions are going to really accomplish something before you start because you hate wasting energy making everyone else think you're working.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
the html color quiz

Huh. The analysis is true enough, but I wanted to be

1. A body of water, smaller than a river, contained within relatively narrow banks.
Depending on my mood--probably a creek, but possibly a brook or stream.
2. What the thing you push around the grocery store is called.
Cart. Shopping cart, if it's not in immediate context (ie, not, "Can I put my purse in the cart?", but like "She was pushing a shopping cart around the city.")
3. A metal container to carry a meal in.
Bento box! Nah, probably a lunchbox. Unless it's mine.
4. The thing that you cook bacon and eggs in.
Frying pan.
5. The piece of furniture that seats three people.
Air mattress. (Haha, kidding, only at Kristy's house the last few weeks.) Couch.
6. The device on the outside of the house that carries rain off the roof.
Gutter. Also where many minds reside.
7. The covered area outside a house where people sit in the evening.
Porch. Possibly deck if it's high off the ground.
8. Carbonated, sweetened, non-alcoholic beverages.
Soda, if I'm not referring to it by the brand name.
9. A flat, round breakfast food served with syrup.
Pancakes. Or waffles, but I think there's only one name for those.
10. A long sandwich designed to be a whole meal in itself.
Ew. SubWay.
11. The piece of clothing worn by men at the beach.
12. Shoes worn for sports.
Tennis shoes (which I actually pronounce as one word, "tenni-shoes." My mother actually referred to them as tennies when I was a kid) or sneakers.
13. Putting a room in order.
Cleaning, organizing.
14. A flying insect that glows in the dark.
Lightning bug or firefly, more often than not the former. Funny, I never noticed that there were two different words for it until just now. Weird.
15. The little insect that curls up into a ball.
16. The children's playground equipment where one kid sits on one side and goes up while the other sits on the other side and goes down.
Seesaw or teeter-totter.
17. How do you eat your pizza?
By hand, generally, unless I'm with someone anal who uses a knife and fork, and I might follow suit. Maybe.
18. What's it called when private citizens put up signs and sell their used stuff?
Yard sale or garage sale, interchangeably. Flea market if they actually open up a shop.
19. What's the evening meal?
20. The thing under a house where the furnace and perhaps a rec room are?
21. What do you call the thing that you can get water out of to drink in public places?
Drinking fountain. Ew. I'd have to be pretty desperate to use one.

1. My username is ______ because ______.
rena_librarian. Well, RenaissanceGrrl was taken (and continues to be taken) by some dominatrix who has a friends-only journal. Grr. I'd had to resort to renaissancegrrl_thelibrarian as my Yahoo! ID and LJ wouldn't take that many letters. I often answer to Rena on forums (Ren and RG and RGrrl aren't my cup of tea) so it just...made sense?

2. My name is _____ because ______.
Sarah, because my parents wanted to give me a Bible name. (After choosing names like Jennifer and Alicia) Suits me well enough, I suppose.

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
Until the Stars Are All Alight. It's a Tolkien quote (from the song Pippin sings in the movie) and I liked the reference to the stars. Also it generically refers to things getting better in the future. I suppose I might actually be due for a rename, lol. Things are good, other than the joblessness.

4. My journal subtitle is ____ because ____.
Call me 'cause I'm still awake. Slight paraphrase from Anna Nalick's "Breathe (2 AM)" because it's generally true--I'm very much a night owl.

5. My friends page is called ____ because ____.
Crazy People Who Like Me...which, uh...makes sense? Lol.

6. My default userpic is ____ because ____.
The Éowyn one Hobbity made for me...because I designed it and had it made for me.

Slept in your bed: Just moi.

Made you cry: Sam. But only a little.
Spent the night at your house: Nico.
You went to the movies with: Kristy, Jared, EJ...uh...Raymond was there, I THINK Dena was there, EJ's man whose name escapes me (but I know it starts with a J!), and a friend of theirs.
You went to the mall with: Kristy and Abi!
Yelled at you: Hmm...Nico, probably?
Sent you an e-mail: Uh...Maryanne sent me the Lions newsletter and if I got anything after that it was automated.
You kissed: No one. *sob*

Said "I love you" and meant it?: Not to a guy. Never said it. Wanted to. Would have meant it if I had.
Gotten in a fight w/your dog/cat/bird/fish,etc.: Uh, no.
Been to New York? I saw the Statue of Liberty from a grounded plane, and I think we drove through it once when I was a kid, but not in any kind of meaningful way.

I wasn't technically tagged, but ganked from [personal profile] theoni (aka Joe the Cake Guy)...

List ten fictional characters you would have sex with (in no particular order) and tag five people to do the same.
(Okay, I don't think I need to explain that's it's theoretical/for fun. I think most of you know I'm waiting for marriage. :D If it kills me.)

1. Frodo Baggins from Lord of the Rings. (Elijah Wood. No one's surprised, I'm sure. Probably any character played by him, really...)
2. John Doe from John Doe. (Dominic Purcell. Why yes, I AM attracted to brains!)
3. Charlie Pace from Lost. (Dominic Monaghan...any character except Geoffry Shawcross, lol.)
4. Dr. Robert Chase from House, MD. (I...don't even know the actor's name. Lol.) (ETA: Jesse Spencer. Thanks, Katchan.)
5. Sawyer from Lost. (Josh Holloway)
6. JD...Dorian, lol, from Scrubs. (Zach Braff)
7. Legolas from Lord of the Rings. (Orlando Bloom...again, more or less as any character, lol...sorry, Shelly!)
8. Gary Hobson from Early Edition. (Kyle Chandler.)
9. Kenshin Himura (Himura Kenshin, for my fellow Japanophiles) from Rurouni Kenshin. (That's an anime. Dunno the name of his American VA.)
10. Erik (the Phantom) from Phantom of the Opera. (Gerard Butler. Especially if he sang--ZOMG Music of the Night DOES THINGS to a girl.)

Not tagging, it's not fair. But I'd be curious to see responses! *coughKatchanKristyNicoShellycough*

I surprised myself...there were a few that I thought about and then realized that no, I wouldn't want to, because I'm a fan of them being in a certain couple on the show/movie. (Like, say, Jin from Lost. Or Will Turner from PotC...not that I really wanted him to end up with Elizabeth, but he's clearly happy with her so why mess that up?) As such I think my answers might have been different if the question was "Which characters could you see yourself falling in love with?" *coughdrhousehimselfcough*

Tuesday--Lunch with Dad at El Charro's. Helped him pick out agreed with his choice of conference table for his new office, which he's getting because he has a new boss who (rightly) thinks his current office (given by the previous boss, who made him move out of his nice one) sucks. Kristy's party. Awesome, pics to come when I feel less lazy. Jungle juice=OH. EM. GEE. Met Sam, didn't really get to talk to him but drove him home. (Short version on Sam: Kristy and I made a McD's run and we bumped into him, said hi, left. I bugged Kristy, all, "who was that??" and she agreed to invite him so I could meet him. Yay!) Claims to be extremely proficient with Rubik's Cube, have yet to see that. Definitely proficient on Rock Band/Guitar Hero guitar.

Wednesday--Lions, per new usual. I'm on the Social Committee (capitals mine). Vaguely disappointed at first (I didn't get to pick, I was involuntarily volunteered and I was kind of hoping to become, like, a copy editor or writer for the newsletter or some such) but then I realized that this means that not only do I put up crepe paper for the banquet but I might get to influence the color. Lol.

Thursday--Left work early (yay!), picked up Nico, drove back roads (yay Google Maps) to Springfield, met up w/Shelly, Dani, and Kia and had dinner @ Fazoli's. Got to see Shelly's ring in person, got to catch up. ^_^ Went to Hammons Hall for RENT. Words cannot describe how much better it is live. (Raunchier for sure, lol, funnier, sort of, and sweeter in spots--particularly seeing Angel and Collins get together. It's not really in the Broadway recording and it's just kind of taken for granted in the movie, but in the play it's acted out.

Angel: "Baby, I've been hearing violins all night."
Collins: "Is it anything to do with me? Are we a thing?"
Angel: "Baby, we're everything."
And thus ensues I'll Cover You.)

During intermission, a gay man (wearing an awesome hat and a pink shirt) walked up and asked if I had a Chocolate Kitty (I assume he meant Chococat) purse, and I told him no, just regular Hello Kitty. He pulls out his wallet, it's a pink Hello Kitty wallet with hot pink sequins. "I lived in Japan for three years. Old habits are hard to break." I squeed. "Lucky!" ^_^ Also, the woman who tore our tickets said that my shoes were cute, and Shelly liked my top. It was a happy night of compliments.

Afterwards, Shelly and Kia had to get back because they had class/work in the morning, but Dani was up for ice cream so she went with Nico and me to Steak & Shake. It was the really old one, that I remember as looking really old when I was there as a kid, lol. I totally didn't think it had any inside space, because we always only ever went to the drive-up window, lol.

Friday--MY BIRTHDAY!! Katchan woke me up, calling to wish me happy birthday. ^_^ Called Mom and moved lunch from the Steak House to Pizza Hut (goddammit, I wanted pizza), went back to sleep for a bit. Had lunch w/Mom and Dad, and Mom brought me birthday cookie (I totally thought I wasn't getting anything like that--Kristy offered to make me a birthday cake, but she didn't go to work Thursday or Friday because of Coldzilla), so yay! The parents gave me $$$ rather than presents. They know me so well. (Well, Mom said that she looked for a steering wheel cover but couldn't find one I'd like. I asked where she looked and immediately came up w/a store she missed. Lol.) Dad said his desk came in, etc, and he'd been putting it together, so I offered to come help him with it.

After he left Mom gave me The Record. (This is a long story, more on that later.) I took it, and the cookie, and the leftover pizza to my house (hey, I have pizza!...) then went out to Dad's office and helped him with the desk (which is black and glass and is going to look hot. Apparently Maxim magazine has a furniture line, and, more surprising, my dad actually likes it). He had to leave at 2:30 because he and Mom had a Lions thing in Little Rock (District Governor training, lol), so then I went around shopping. Got a Hello Kitty license plate frame at AutoZone (I went to look at steering wheel covers because I figured Mom only looked for purple ones and I could find something I liked), bought Ultra Violet Manic Panic and a fingernail-piercing kit at Tattooz by Sassy (where Brandon got his tattoo, when I went with him, lol), then it occurred to me to look at Hastings and found the matching steering wheel cover. ^_^ There was too much pink on it (waaaay more than the frame) so I doctored it (later) with colored Sharpies. YAY. Looks better than you'd think.

Got a call from Nico and hung out with him for a while--he's been sick, so we just watched TV-on-torrent-downloaded-and-burned-DVD and ate popsicles. He gave me an awesome PotC birthday card that plays the main theme when you open it. Soooooo going on my desk, at least for a little while. Left his place and went to SmartStyles to have my hair done. I got the red redone and had just a little bit of layering put in. While I was waiting, I missed a call, but heard the voicemail alert, so checked my messages, and SAM had called me. "Hey, it's Sam. Um, happy birthday! I'll talk to you later. Bye." SQUEE! Called Kristy and she said she gave him my number. :) Stored it.

Stopped at Arby's for dinner, and the only downer of the day happened--they quit selling cheesecake bites. I told the girl at the window that they couldn't DO that, it was my birthday, and that I was writing to corporate, lol.

Went home and started to use the Manic Panic, but read that you're supposed to use a tint brush, went on a wild goose chase to Walgreens and back to Wal*Mart, only to come back home and do it by hand. -_-* Oh well. Noticed that Wal*Mart was selling some restaurant booths for $40 a pop. Watched some TV (House, yay!) and went to bed.

Saturday--Nico woke me up wanting to go shopping, I told him to give me time to flatiron my hair, Kristy called wanting out of the house and to tell me that I DID have birthday cake, lol. Long story short me, Nico, Kristy, and Brandon ended up at Wal*Mart, I bought one of the restaurant booths (can you think of anywhere else to get a table and seating for four for $40?--I'll likely replace it eventually, but OMG I HAVE A TABLE), and Brandon drove it over in his truck. He and Nico were just leaving when Kristy and I got there, so Kristy and I went about our shopping while the two menfolks delivered my truck. Apparently they had to dis- and reassemble it to get it in. They ate some of my birthday cookie, and I would have been mad, but they cleaned the table, too. ^_^

In the meantime Kristy and I had...a meal of indeterminate name at McD's, lol, then went to drop off my groceries at my house before going to her house to meet up everyone for the club. Jacqui dropped by (I had missed a call from her, I had planned on calling her back from Kristy's) and gave me my present (Ty Pennington's book, which actually did have the nice pictures that I thought it didn't, that misunderstanding being the reason I didn't plunk down $20 for it when it first came out, and Hello Kitty gummy snacks, lol), and came with us to Kristy's, where A) Sam, Dena, and Raymond were watching Sin City, and B) all us girls put on club makeup/glitter lotion/really nice fake tattoos that I had just picked up at Wal*Mart. (Somehow, of course, I ended up watching Elijah Wood get mutilated/killed/etc, and totally missed all the good parts of that movie. -_-*) Boondock Saints also got watched, I got to sit next to Sam a lot.

At some point he asked if I got his message, and I was all, "Yeah! That was really sweet. *big grin*" When we left for the club, it was me, J, Kristy, and Sam in Kristy's car. ^_^ Had some drinks at the club, nothing new other than the Jamaican Wet Dream (something Nico had once a long time ago, the one time we went to the club before I could drink). Good stuff. Danced a little with Sam but was hesitant to touch him, had another drink, told Kristy about it all and she was like, "Dude, just back up to him and give him some *bump/grind motion here*!" Lol. Went to dance some more and couldn't find him. Brandon offered to dance with me and I turned him down. (I don't know. Salsa's one thing, but grinding him? Just no. And I like to grind, thanks. Nico says this is immature of me, Kristy was all "Frickin right!" I just knew I didn't want Sam to see me dancing with him and get the wrong idea.)

Complained to Kristy about not being able to find Sam (it was really crowded) and she helped me look--he was playing pool. Grabbed another drink and watched him play (I thought he kinda sucked, but I think he was just having an off night because apparently he's played in tournaments, etc), then dragged him back to the dance floor. This time I put my arms around his neck and he didn't seem to mind too much. X3 Danced until I was ready to fall over.

Sam came with me back to the table and met everybody (it was kind of funny, he hadn't been back to the table once Nico and his group showed up, I think Nico was starting to think I had made him up o_O). Then they gave last call/last song and we all left. I complained about the cold and Sam gave me his jacket. :D There was a lot of fighting going on in the parking lot--there had been cop cars there when we got there. We decided Sam should drive since he was the only one who hadn't had ANY alcohol, though I think either Jacqui or I would have been fine to drive. Kristy, on the other hand, was pretty sloshed (and for the record, Kristy gets lovey when she's drunk, she gave out lots of hugs, lol). We almost ran over people trying to get out of the parking lot. It was CRAZY. We had to pull over for Kristy to decide she wasn't sick after all, the group in Jared's car took the long way around, through Midway, and I don't even know about Nico.

We went inside Kristy's for a minute, I grabbed the rest of my cake (Kristy, J and I had each had a slice earlier, in between the makeup and stuff), and then Stuart was like, "I love you all, but I'm tired, so I'm kicking you out!" Lol. Gave the keys to Jacqui and told her to get in the car, and then everyone else walked off and it was just me and Sam standing there and I asked if he was working the next day.
" you want to have dinner with me tomorrow?"
"Uh...sure. You have my number, right? From when--"
"Yeah, from when you called me. I'll call you...tomorrow afternoon?"
"Sure. See you tomorrow."

Got in the car, squeed, drove home with J, and we chilled for about an hour (okay, okay, we drooled over Ty) and she went home.

Sunday (today)--Slept until about 2:30, got up, had some breakfast. Kristy texted me to have me go for a walk with her, got dressed, went over there. Called Sam on the way and set up dinner (as I told Kristy later: "It's supper, with Sam, at six, at the Steak House. It's all nicely alliterative."). Kristy and I walked from her house to work (she's determined to get back in shape and so she's walking to work this week, so she wanted to time it), then halfway back before her knee started to hurt--she twisted it a little last night, dancing. Stuart came and got us, we stopped at the gas station to say hi to Jared (he called after we walked through the parking lot and was all indignant, lol), then went back to Kristy's, then I went home to refresh before meeting Sam.

We were both a little early, lol. Dinner was nice, even though conversation was slow--I think we have the whole "it takes a while to get started with someone" thing going on. My silence, at first, is not at all indicative that I'm not having a good time.

As we were finishing, I was all, " you want to go do something else?"
"Well, there's only two things to do in this town besides go eat, and that's go bowling or see a movie...and I really don't want to go bowling."
"Let's go see a movie."

We called the two movie hotlines (HA, I'm not the only one with them in my phone! XD) and decided on Jumper. I texted Jennifer from the theater bathroom, lol, to say that dinner had progressed to dinner-and-a-movie, and that so far he had picked up the tab even though I had done the asking. She texted back "Good boy!!!" Lol.

Jumper was good, Rachel Bilson's actually a decent actress (I was shocked; still hate The OC). I really wanted to grab Sam's hand, but resisted--though my hand was within his reach most of the time, lol.

After the movie I asked Sam if he wanted to do anything else or call it a night, and he just kinda shrugged, "Was there anything you wanted to do?"
"Nothing in particular, just, I don't have to be anywhere until I have to get to sleep..."

We decided to call it a night and I drove him back to his car, and as he was getting out, he was like, "Well, see you later." GACK. SAVE THE MOMENT.
"I had fun."
"Yeah...hey, when do you get off work tomorrow?"
*mental sigh of relief* "Well, four-thirty theoretically, but I usually get there half-an-hour late, so--"
"Well, do you want to do something tomorrow?"
"Call me when you get off work?"

:D So I have another date with him tomorrow. Checked my voicemail and Nico had called during the movie, called him back, and we decided to hang out and he'd be there to get me in a few moments, which I used to call Kristy and update her. Nico and I drove around aimlessly, did our construction rounds and got some fast food before he dropped me off. Watched some TV, started downloading the ep of Lost I missed to see Rent, and the complete series of John Doe (how did I forget about THAT this long??), wrote this, and went to bed. Here's to tomorrow!
rena_librarian: (Default)
At the moment I have either food poisoning or the flu. Not sure which, but I threw up so I'm SO staying home tomorrow. I emailed in sick so I don't have to get up and call. Not taking sick time, though, it's early enough in the pay period that making up the hours will be easy. I'm pretty sure it'll be a day or two before I want a lunch hour. >_<

Yesterday was Esme's first birthday, and today was Elijah's (if you go by the idea that it's still officially Monday, since I haven't gone to bed yet). Congrats, woohoo, fanfare, etc. I promise I'll care more tomorrow.

Esme being a year old feels about right, but Elijah being 27 makes me feel OLD. (As does my own impending 22nd birthday, and Maddy's seventh, and the boys' fourth, though I think I'm okay with Mirielle's second.) Have I really crushed on him that long? Five years? (Maybe more if you count the strictly Frolijah days?) DAMN.

I told my mom that it made me feel old to be turning 22 because there's no more milestone birthdays until you hit over the hill, no matter where you place that mark, and she pointed out to me that it hit her the other day that she's going to be SEVENTY pretty soon. (Which isn't exactly right, she'll be seventy around the time I'm thirty; but I get what she means.) She said that SEVENTY is what's truly "old" to her and she's kind of freaked that she's going to be it.

It is kind of odd.

My grandparents on her side are going to be eighty on their birthdays this year. WOW. My other grandpa is going to be 86, I'm pretty sure. Craziness.

And me being sick is making me ramble with little to no point. In lolcat: I sleepz nao. Kthxnite.
rena_librarian: (Default)
I just watched Day Zero with Kat online.


Apparently all the things that attract me to Elijah are what make him unmanly...? O_o

Ahh, screw other people's opinions. I LURRRRRRVES him. *glomps Elijah*

 I hear you just got married
Took a month long honeymoon
And you were all smiles at the wedding
You cried when you kissed the groom

I got no invitation
I guess the mailman didn't bring it to me
But I see the whole thing in slow motion
Every night as I try to sleep

My buddy John said you looked real pretty
And you acted like you were in love
He said the preacher asked for objections
And he thought about standing up

I told John he must've been crazy
'Cause you were just about to say 'I do'
He just gave me a wink and said all he could think
Is it could've been me with you

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

I don't guess I ever told you
That I went out and bought you a ring
I even carried it around in my pocket
Waiting to say the right thing

I pulled it out the other day
But the diamond had lost its shine
Well, I know how it feels 'cause my eyes grow dim
When I think you could have been mine

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

Oh, I called her just in time to be too late
You know those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see (it could've been me)

It could have been me standing there with you
It could have been me and my dreams coming true
But those dreams move on if you wait too long
It took me till now to see it could have been me

It could have been me...
--It Could Have Been Me, Billy Ray Cyrus

Yeah. Yeah. Exactly what's running through my head, save for a gender-reversal.

Or, better yet...and maybe slightly closer to home...

Today was the worst day, I went through hell
I wish I could remove it from my mind
Two months away from you but I couldn't tell
I thought that everything was gonna be just fine

The postcard that you wrote with the stupid little note
Something wasn't quite right about it
It smelt like cheap perfume
And it didn't smell like you
There is no way you can get around it
Because you wrote

"I wish you were her"
You left out the 'E'
You left without me
And now you're somewhere out there
With a bitch, slut, psycho babe
I hate you, why are guys so lame?
Everything I gave you, I want everything back but you

My friends tried to tell me all along
That you weren't the right one for me
My friends tried to tell me to be strong
I bet you didn't think that I would see

The postcard that you wrote
With the stupid little note
Something wasn't quite right about it
I wanna see you cry
Like I did a thousand times
Now you're losing me, you're losing me now
Because you wrote

I wish you were her
You left out the 'E'
You left without me
And now you're somewhere out there
With a bitch, slut, psycho babe
I hate you, why are guys so lame?
Everything I gave you, I want everything back but you
---Everything Back But You, Avril Lavigne

Ahh, Avril. You write 'em so well.

So yeah. If you haven't put it together yet, Duncan got married. I guess. I mean, that is what I would assume from his MSN byline reading "I love being married!!!" Three exclamation points and a retarded MSN smiley face.

Every time I think about getting back in touch with him (this time it was gonna be "gimme my books back, jerk!" hence the appropriateness of Avril) I manage to find out something like this. Well, screw him. To quote another song, "There's a fine, fine line between love and  a waste of time." Ahh, Avenue Q.

On the bright side, I checked outside to see if my Marvelous Mail package was sitting by the door--and it wasn't, but there was a mailing tube propped up in the corner. I didn't THINK it was my MM package (though it's an idea for the next one I send! or maybe the next round's theme!), since it seemed a bit small. It occurred to me what it might be as I pried it open (which was harder than it should have been, lol), and I was right--it was, of all things, an Elijah Wood poster. [profile] frolijah_fan_54 offered to send them out weeks ago (she went to a screening of Day Zero, met the director, and had gotten a copy of the poster), and I'd quite forgotten that I said I wanted one. It just made me laugh and think that (yet another song!) "Somebody's Out There Watching." ^_^ It absolutely could not have come on a better day. It's currently lying on the floor behind me, flattening under a couple of encyclopedias, and hopefully I can hang it up tonight before I go to sleep. ^_^

Nothing beats Elijah comfort. If this funk continues I'll probably watch Deep Impact tomorrow.
