Writer's Block: Seven

Which of the seven deadly sins—sloth, greed, lust, gluttony, anger, envy, and pride—are you most likely to commit?

I want to say envy, but I know that it's pride. I'm getting over anger, It just takes too much out of me to be angry all the time. Lust is definitely not something I'm about. Gluttony is something I guess every one succumbs to at some point, but it's fleeting for me. Greed is a cultural thing, we are built up believing in. Sloth is also fleeting. Total and complete laziness is not something I do everyday.


Dude, what is your problem?

Why would you lie? You aren't good looking, you wouldn't take me out on a date, you had NOTHING to lie about. Or DID you, hmm? Well, let me vent that this may be the shittiest, most vile thing I have ever been privy to. I mean really. And I have done some mean things myself. I'm no saint. I once made out with a guy I KNEW wanted to go out with another girl and was just using me, but I wanted to, so;) I know I'm not perfect, but I have never blatantly lied to get someone to trust me. To get them to open up to me. Like you tried with me. And then held against me. YOU NEVER EVEN TOOK ME OUT, RAT BASTARD! I liked you, but you are a liar, a misnomer, an idiot. Yes, my pride is wounded, but your reputation will be if I ever let the cat out of the bag. You will never be able to convince me otherwise. You see, I tell the truth and have my own motivations for doing what needs to be done, not for lying to get what I want. See, that doesn't work. To quote CB, "You and I...we're done professionally...fuckin' ass."




Writer's Block: Cookies

What is the strangest advice you've ever received from a fortune cookie?

"You will take a flight to a foreign country. Lucky numbers: 4 8 15 16 23 42"

Thank god, I didn't follow that advice.


Catching up

Okay, to start off, the beginning of this year hasn't started off too well. My grandmother passed away on January 20th. I am still in a hazy place, but I am trying to get involved in other things and keeping myself busy, etc...

I am watching Heroes right now, getting caught up with that mess. I like Heroes, but damn, they really are just making it up as they go along. I'm happy that Lost is back. I am counting down by episode, lol, until the end of the series.

I'm talking to my father, which is weird, but I figure if he is making an effort, so can I. I figure I can deal with just about anything at this point in my life. I woke up again, so it must mean something, right? Moving on...

The BBC announced a new actor for Doctor Who's fifth season. Matt Smith. Go look it up. He has interesting hair. Not Robert Pattinson magical, but equally visual.

I am really enjoying MySpace and Facebook right now. I guess the constant information keeps me occupied, so if anyone feels like it they can go ahead an friend me:) I'm trying to get a Stickam time set up, too. Jill LIVE! I know it's ridiculous, but so is everything else. I am also, reading the New Jedi Order books: Vector Prime is a quick introductory read and highly recommended, Onslaught and Ruin mainly focus on Jedi Knight Corran Horn (who HAD to be based on Maverick from Top Gun, because seriously, in my mind this is the only job Tom Cruise should ever get again and only because I can control the performance) and begins to detail the villainous Yuuzhan Vong invaders.

Sometimes, I miss the Empire:( It was so simple then. Everything was so clear cut and black and white. It was nice to see the lines drawn. Damn Clone Wars, with all of the politics:( Also, I want to point out one more Star Wars book I honestly can't wait to read, Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. I started to graze the beginning and it's hilarious. If the rest of the book is like that, The Courtship of Princess Leia will have a contender for funniest Star Wars book. Also, pick up CoPL if you get a chance and want to see how Leia and Han got married;).

So, I'm off. E is going to come over and we are going to watch Bones and cook a casserole (at least, that what was suggested).



Writer's Block: Table for One

Do you ever go out to dinner (at a sit-down restaurant) by yourself?
Yes, but not often. I prefer to go with people and enjoy the repartee', but sometimes I will go have a bite in the corner by myself. I'm fine with it.

Never be afraid to sit by yourself. John Cusack may need to sit by you someday.


Coming to you live from...

Hi All.

I am sitting here tonight posting from my grandmother's room up at the hospital. She is very ill. There isn't much to be done about it. I am going to be up here for the remainder of the evening and through the night. So, of course, I brought my precious. I have taken a valium so I don't constantly lose my shit, cuz part of me completely wants to, but I need to be cool for my grandmother, so she knows I'm okay, and not to worry about me, and that she can pass on if she's ready. I'm gonna really start to chill out here in a little bit and watch some Doctor Who. It should be interesting:)
So, when I posted the other day, I had NO idea what was in store for me. I was endeavoring to begin a Star Wars Marathon with reviews and all.


What followed was sleeplessness, distraction, and the complete MOCKING of The Phantom Menace. I have failed as an apologist.

I haven't been able to sleep well at all. I think I've gotten it under control now, but I've apparently got to be asleep by midnight or I am NOT getting up. But I am up at work right now and I am going to post a review of The Phantom Menace later on tonight.

Moving on...

Last night I embarked on a Lost Season 1 re-watch. I made it to the 4th disc. The story put together is amazing. You are completely weaved into the story, so by the time you get to the season finale, you've been hooked for weeks. Hell, I was hooked in the pilot when we first hear "the Monster" moving the trees out in the jungle at night. But for people coming into it, I HIGHLY recommend the TV on DVD re-watch. It is superb to say the least, so much so, that you will put down everything and focus on what you are watching.

I also, began watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars off my DVR, and the first episode, "Ambush" is so much fun. I want a show called "Everyone Loves Yoda." Because, really, who doesn't?

Anyway, I'm gonna go now.


Hi All!!!

I am seriously working on changing some things here and there. I am going to be working on a new MySpace page soon. I had it with the other one. Also, I want my live journal to be my main page. I have more fun on it than I do on MySpace anyway. You won't find me on Facebook or twitter, either. I will have a web cam up on Stickam.com and will be referencing some people on Youtube, so look forward to that. As for right now, I am watching Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and will be having a marathon this evening. Tomorrow, I am embarking on a Doctor Who-A-Thon (as I have taken to calling it). THERE WILL BE REVIEWS! Can you believe TPM is 10 years old! Where the hell does the time go? Anyway, I am going to be changing my work hours as well. I will work a 40 hour week, but I find no purpose in getting up at the crack of dawn to do hair. I would rather stay after 5 and make some real bank, ya know? Anywho, I'll be checking back in tomorrow!


I'm never speaking up again

Well, I was so tired after work yesterday, I backed out of all my evening plans, went home with a splitting hangover headache, and went to sleep. Dree came into town and we went downtown and partied, as we are wont to do. We took a cab home and then we went to sleep. I was too drunk. Completely, I admit it. It's funny why it seems like a good idea at the time, but really, I was having too much fun to be bothered by the consequences my body goes through the day after. I get so sick. I just can't do it like I used to. I'm getting old. Really, three beers is more than enough for me, and yet, I know I had more then that on Friday. Oh, well. Live and learn. We had a good time and that's all that matters.

Does this seem familiar to anyone else?

Yeah, this totally made me well up a little.
