can't you see i'm a fool in so many ways but to lose all my senses that is just so typically me

And so I was on my way to work yesterday and I tripped over the perfectly even and not uneven at all brick sidewalks on Pennsylvania Avenue and twisted my ankle and pulled several ligaments and chipped a bone and I'm on crutches and yes, I am moving on Wednesday and no, I can't hire movers, why do you ask?

you wanna be crazy so you wanna go crazy let's go crazy

Umm. So. A few things. I've been remiss.

Yesterday was Trixie's birthday. So wish her a happy belated one, yo.

Last night, Jess, Ellie and Karida treated me to birthday dinner at The Regent which was awesome, even though Jess had to ride a half block out of her way to get there.

I move in a week and I am totally unprepared.

I move to Virginia and I don't know that I'm terribly happy about it.

But Jess says there's a Dogfish Head Alehouse opening up in Falls Church so that makes me happy.

I'm changing my marital status and my umm, some other things which I can't talk about yet but I think I'm possibly changing too many MAJOR things AT ONCE and maybe I am making a huge mistake. You know?

please allow me to introduce myself

All y'all WISH you were as cool as me.

You Are The Devil

You don't represent evil, but you do represent the animalistic side of humans. You demonstrate what happens when we listen to our first instincts. At times you tend to be materialistic and hedonistic, giving in to temptation. Admit it, you're guilty of acting first - and forgetting to think later!

Your fortune:

Right now, you may be having a difficult time as a result of choices you have made.
You need to think about what's important in your life, and discover what chains you down. It is the time to acknowledge your faults and take steps to overcome them. It's also the time to let go of any fears or inhibitions that are holding you back.

sometime i wonder what i'm gonna do there ain't no cure for the summertime blues

I'm not sure this is the right time to do this. Or that there's any time to do this. I'm going to write this not to make people to feel sorry for me. I don't want that. I just want to express myself.

I used to love the summer. I used to love July. July was Potential.

These past two months have been, well, awful. But the upshot is, my health is still poor, I'm frustrated and bored at work, I'm moving to DC permanently, I'm moving within DC to a new place in two weeks and I haven't even begun to think about packing, also I have no furniture, I've lost my knitting and crochet mojo, so while I really really want to knit and crochet, I just sit and stare and yarn and don't pick it up, I seem to have lost most, if not all, of my friends in Georgia, and I don't know why, and, my brother has taken to calling me and screaming at me about what an evil, horrible, fat, ugly, alcoholic I am. Oh, and yeah.

I'm getting a divorce.

Birthday? What birthday?

By the way, the "mannequin" pictured the other day? Some of you commented that at least she has a head? That's all she is, a head. There's no body there. Gives you a whole new perspective, doesn't it?

Mmm. Slaughter. I loved me some Slaughter back in high school.

PS: Is it wrong how much I am in love with Alan Rickman? And Snape? And Alan Rickman as Snape?

all i needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand

I really need to thank some people. I've been remiss.

Zardra and Melissa for sending me care packages that picked me up when I needed them.

Dragon Knitter for offering to send me chocolate. I'm holding you in reserves.

Janice, both Jen and La, Ann, Rabbitch, Imbrium, and Trixie, for long IM sessions, e-mails, and phone calls, mostly of me whining, but first and foremost, for not judging me, even though I deserve to be judged.

Melissa, words can never express what you've done for me or how much you've helped me. I'll miss you when I stop coming to Atlanta.

And not jess and not your mother, thanks for helping me sort out my priorities and getting me to go to the doctor this week.

plato the greek or rin tin tin who's more famous to the billion millions

I'm going to do this post now, so that everyone forgets the real date when it comes around. Stolen from JenLa, among others.

The rules: You go to Wikipedia (I refuse to link to it because it you aren't using Firefox with the Wikipedia search window in the corner, you're fucking lame) and type in your birthday (day and month only). Then post three events, two births and one holiday that occurred on your birthday.

Three Events

  • 1989: Actress Rebecca Schaeffer was shot to death by a crazed fan/stalker.

Two Births
