Guidelines


+ If you found me through some community, do tell me which one. (it just helps me figure out who you are)

+ Give me some vague idea as to why you're friending me. I just want to know! (I won't add you otherwise, to avoid spammers and bots)

+My eljay is a wee bi-polar. I tend to post how crappy I'm feeling, go away, come back and find something wondrous that makes me feel better and post about it.

That's it, really.

Cosmonaut is completed! He's not all that pretty, but I'd like to think I did a good job for the first time ever. =/

This'll be a two-parter...the prep post & the shower post.

So prep post!

We made Rainbow Cheesecake and it was SO GOOD. I had a lot of fun making it and taking photos (and running them through photoshop) (I found the recipe for the cheesecake awhile ago and I will not link you to it because the recipe said to toss out half the red velvet cake, which is like a big HELL NO to me. Plus it insinuated that a white cake with red food dye added is the same thing as a red velvet cake.)

Scott & I made some awesome pasta sauce yesterday. It's a combination of my dad's, one from the internet, and a bit of our own meddling. I'll put the recipe up if you want. And yes, I'm not very good at coming up with names for things.

Cheesy pepper sauce )

I forgot how much I like doing websites. It's a bit of trial & error right now since I'm so rusty at Dreamweaver, but I'm just trying to flush out a solid design for our wedding page. Cheesy, but hey, it's the 21st century!

Oooh. Almost forgot! We set a date: Aug 7th, 2010. Yay!

Dude. The new Depeche Mode video is creepy as all fuck.



Seriously. Just watch it.

D:

In other news, life is sucking big time. I have to make a huge decision I was unable to make earlier (which landed me in this mess in the first place) and I don't know what the hell to do. I'm drowning.

Connecticut Supreme Court rules same-sex couples can marry

Which is cool, but...out come the crazies.

According to Justice Peter T. Zarella, the purpose of marriage laws is to "privilege and regulate procreative conduct."

Wait. What?!

Last time I checked, and maybe I'll sound a little Liberation, but since when does the government have any business controlling private affairs?

Oh, well, I guess if they can try and control my ovaries, they can try and control my sex life, too.

I'm such a lazy, passive-aggressive anarchist type.

Argh. There's so much drama at work because I have to quit. I was basically accused of wasting the company's money. YES OF COURSE! They uncovered my evil plot! I sat at home, wondering just how I could get back at Buy More, despite not actually being a regular customer. SO I HATCHED A PLAN. I decided to apply and then only stay for two weeks if hired. MUAHAHAHA. That way they had to pay a trainee who didn't do shit. (Oh wait, how many computers did I sell? How many service plans on those computers did I sell?)

What the hell. I know I'm not exactly being helpful by quitting, but come on. I'm not making this shit up. The manager got in my face about it and yelled at me about wasting the company's money, like I'm some communist bastard trying to single handly take down this capitalist corporation. I was tempted to say you know what, you're right, I'm an asshole. MY APOLOGIES FOR WASTING THE MONEY OF A MULTI MILLION DOLLAR COMPANY.

Fuck that. If I lose my scholarship (which is the source of the quitting--they promised to work with my school schedule and basically have done nothing to do so) I would have wasted $44k and would have to drop out. FUCK THAT. I've "wasted" maybe $400 of their money. $44k out of the pocket of one person vs $400 out of a corporation's pocket. HM. I WONDER WHICH IS MORE COSTLY.

So basically, I put my two weeks in on Tuesday, but I'm telling them Saturday is my last day. I really don't care what happens, because school is my biggest priority right now, and they've failed to understand that, despite promising to. I've barely had enough time to work on my work as it is, and it's only the second week.

LONG STORY SHORT: Don't work for the big blue box unless you want to be screwed up the ass, out your ears.

Honestly, all I want to do with my life right now is be a drummer. GOD DAMN YOU 98 ROCK FOR ACTUALLY PLAYING DECENT ROCK INSTEAD OF THAT PUSSY EMO SHIT.

I think I'm destined or maybe doomed to forever swing at windmills and jump at imaginary monsters.

Not to mention let the past come up from nowhere and knock the wind right out of me.

It breaks my heart in a very stupid way to know that everything from that summer is gone.

So the Type project I had been panicking about this week? IT'S DONE, BETCHES.

I finished it yesterday and it was easier than I thought. HAH. It may look like shit, but at least I have something to turn in.

HELLS YA.

Also, my basic reaction to my new phone is"...shiiiiiiinyyyyy"
mango_lassie: (Default)
ARGH.

I need someone who knows Flash to help me out. I have my final project due tomorrow and nothing's working.

We're supposed to make an e-card, but none of the damn actions work. So you can't click on anything. FUCK. Someone help, please? What action am I even supposed to use??

Yesterday, for a few hours, we actually had a family moment. Gene, Scott, & Nevin had fun pissing around with the web cam on me mac. It was really fun.

But at the same time, Gene & Nevin want me to go up to Buffalo for Thanksgiving to visit my great aunt Betty who is quite possibly going to die within the next year. That right there is why I don't know want to go. I don't need to get emotionally attached to someone else who will leave in a horrible, heart-wrenching way.

It's bad enough I'm instantly attached to this bloody guinea pig.

Because...I was bored enough to spend 5 minutes making something to induce seizures. YAY!

You know you want to click me )

Today was a fabulous day in the photo lab! And by "fabulous", I mean both the T15 (develops the film) and the PT750 (reads negatives/prints photos) were not working. So we did pretty much nothing all day. But somehow, we managed to develop the 6 rolls that came in before 4.


Fun stuff.

I wish I was the type of person who took risks. I wish other people would take risks. Not the "let me drive at insane speeds on the highway" risks, just, I dunno. "let me drop everything to go on a cross country roadtrip" sort of risk, I suppose. "let me quit this crappy job in order to pursue my dream of owning a llama farm." "Let me make a low budget, artistic film because I have this awesome idea, critics and money be damned." "Let me drop my guard just for once." "Let me do that one thing I've always wanted to but never had time to do it." "Let me be completely candid and totally honest with someone." "Let me "Let me start/join a band and play in teeny clubs in my hometown until we make it big."

Is 'let me' even the right verb...thing?

HALP.

This is going to sound completely ridiculous, but! There's an artist, out there, somewhere in the world who does paintings of flat, 2-D figures and dogs. Like a silhouette. I remember because on Sesame Street, they had this bit where his/her stuff was animated and when the dog barked, specks would come out of its mouth, like in a comic book.

WHO IS THIS PERSON?!

I'd really like to know! It's of an urgent nature, actually.

So the Marriage Amendment was passed. I literally screamed when I saw it on the TV. N. gave me a weird look--I'm not sure if she's ok with gay marriage or not because when I explained to her what it was, she asked me if I was upset because it didn't pass. I'll get a straight answer from her at dinner, because in a stupid way, if you can't accept homosexuality, it's hard for me to accept you. Though she doesn't seem like the "ZOMG ITZA SIN!1!1!" type. I hope not, I really do like her.

I can't put how I'm feeling about this in words. Betrayed comes to mind, but that doesn't make much sense, does it? Enraged, frustrated, confused...I don't care if it may or may not effect me, it's the fucking principle. WHY DOES IT MATTER WHO THE BLOODY HELL YOU MARRY?! As long as it's consensual, I don't care what people do. I need a fucking watchtower.

I'm not even going to say anything about the Senate race--I'll probably jinx something.

I'm making this entry public because it needs to be.

This is going to sound utterly stupid, but...how do you write a summary?

No, really. A summary is more than just "this guy was in jail and then he was let out. He learned that his wife and best friend were dead, and then some crazy old guy offered him a job as an errand boy,"* etc, etc.

All throughout my high school career, summaries were seen as EVOL and so we never wrote them. Now I have to choose something we've read in English and summarize it in one paragraph.

To make it even harder, they're all memoir type things full of self reflection and otherwise poetic nonsense. How the hell do you summarize that? (How would you summarize say, Wind, Sand and Stars?)

This song has been stuck in my head for days now. I wish I put Weird Al on my mp3 player so when I'm feeling shitty in Drawing for being unable to draw angles to save my life, I'd have something funny to listen to. Actually, I need to get Scott to let me burn all his Weird Al cds because I'm too lazy to drive out to Best Buy. Nyeeeh!

Did I mention that the only thing I have on my i-Tunes is either punk rock or The Beatles?
