I'm in a really bad mental place right now. But I can't really be bothered to care. Yay apathy.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
Thank god! I knew That Guy was a douche and he officially proved it... not that he wasn't already one. Now he's douchier.

But damn, was it satisfying to remove him from my FB friends list.

windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
I'm currently having an argument with someone on Facebook.

(As an aside, you can find me there under my real name, so friend me if you like! Just make sure to leave a message that says you know my from LJ.)

It's not really an argument per se, because those who know me know that when I get angry, I get really cold and overly polite. Because I believe that you should be logical and polite, even if you think the other person is a raging douchebag who should be taken out back and beaten with a flaming baseball bat. But this is... different. See, I friended This Guy mostly because he's another friend's BF/fiancee/whatever, and because I wanted another Farmville neighbor. >_>;;

cut for political beliefs, mild ranting, pettiness, and the issue that sent me into a rage )


I think I'm done ranting.

Let's see if this political post causes another flame war in my LJ. I think I'm running 2-for-2 on that front. I really hate it when that happens. Maybe I should just stick with silly ranting about food and chibi pr0n.


The 'conversation' has ended, even though I could've answered back because This Guy's last line made my brain explode. But I just decided that I'd have more luck squeezing blood from stone.

Now I'm considering putting the whole 'discussion' here for posterity reasons. And to see if anyone thinks I was being too... zesty.
windandwater: (Smile!)
So... I got my hair cut today at a salon.

It is short.

Like... nearly pixie cut short.

And for the first time in, like, 10 years, I have bangs.

I think I like my new 'do.



Pics for you greedy greedy people. :P Though they're taken with my crappy cellphone camera. In a Staples. Because I was shopping after getting my haircut, and remembered: "Oh, people will like to see my hair, and I'm all dressed properly and everything."

It was a big one. Over 5.0 for sure. It kinda scared me because the ground shook for a long minute and it was strong the whole time. And to put things in perspective, the city I live in happens to be on top of a giant slab of granite, so we normally don't feel quakes here unless they're strong, and even then it's somewhat muted.

My anime figures that were standing on top of my headboard (above my head) toppled over. Sorry Cloud. T_T Gaara stayed upright though, which seems appropriate.

EDIT wonders about aftershocks...

Found it. Holy shit it was a 5.9! I knew it was strong.

In a continuation of my birthday joy, I went out yesterday (before my coughing and voice issues got really bad) and redeemed my free birthday coupons for stuff. It was a pretty good haul, and I'm so glad that I'm a member of those rewards clubs at my favorite stores. I walked away with:

-- two free pieces of Godiva chocolate (both truffles)
-- 3 tablets of Godiva milk chocolate (on sale and with a 10% birthday discount)
-- an eye-centered trio from Sephora (eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara)
-- Cookie Doughn't You Want Some ice cream from Coldstone
-- a cute purse and trio of Victoria's Secret body products (Love Spell lotion, body wash, and body mist); not free, but I used a $10 giftcard to buy it, so it cut the price in half, which is awesome because just the lotion is $10

The only thing I couldn't find was a GameStop with a used version of Shin Megumi Tensei: Devil Survivor, so that I could just get the instruction booklet. I like collecting things like that, and I sort of want the instructions and tips, because I sort of have no idea what I'm doing in the game, even if it's hella fun.

Unfortunately, halfway through my shopping joy, I started coughing harder. =___=;; It's pretty bad now. I hate unproductive (a.k.a. non-phlem producing) coughs. Dry coughs just hurts my throat and chest and I know that mucus is lingering somewhere.

My voice is pretty much bullfrog-like. I'm going between losing my voice completely and being able to talk, but I sound horrible.

Damn you allergy season. Damn you.
windandwater: (Smile!)
Thank you to everyone who wished me Happy Birthday~! ♥ ♥ ♥

I had a great time on my birthday. I finally decided to go to San Diego (with Aoi, K-chan, Pet and my parents), specifically Seaport Village. I always loved going there when I was little, and I haven't been back in... 10 years practically. It's still a fabulous place to spend the day. ♥ The Busker Festival was on my birthday, too, so there were a bunch of street performers everywhere, doing their acts. So it was free entertainment!

Oh, Bob. It was worth it just for his act. XD;; I laughed so hard during his performance.

There's so many cute shops and things, and it's right on the ocean, and the weather was fabulous, so I was happy. There was a beautiful view to Coranado, and people were sailing their boats in the harbor. :3 Oh, and I dressed up (there's pictures forthcoming) so all in all it was a very win day.

Also managed to find a new pretty-smelling-things obsession at one of the shops called Bath Junkie. They customize and hand-make a whole bunch of bath/beauty products for you, like scrubs, lotions, soaps, etc. It's so awesome. I bought myself one bottle of their Body Dessert lotion/moisturizer stuff; and I customized it to smell like Asian Rain/China Blossom, and it is purple. I really wanted to get their exfoliating scrub stuff, but that might have to wait for another day.

All in all, I had a wonderful time with my friends and family (even if Pet was loud and wanted to watch a guy bash his head on the rocks). ♥

And, of course, THE LOOT:

-- Shin Megumi Tensei Devil Survivor (for the DS)
-- a box of Krispy Kremes
-- Earthly Delights, by the lady who wrote The Other Boleyn Girl
-- a bottle of Velvet Tuberose lotion
-- Body Dessert lotion (a present to myself~)
-- Cream & Cookies ice cream in a waffle cone from Ben & Jerry's

Haven't seen my closer relatives yet, so I don't know if I'll be getting presents from them. Maybe I should shake them down. :P

Also, Happy Easter.


Found it! It was a big one. @_@
windandwater: (Oro?)
Man, am I SO glad that I had an appointment at the DMV. I don't know why more people don't use the appointment system. It's so much easier and faster. By the time I got to the DMV yesterday, the line was all the way around the building, and I had to circle the parking lot three times to find parking. I finally ended up parking in the neighboring building's lot, and just walking across the parking lot to the DMV.

I didn't even bother getting into the HUEG (typo intentional) line either. I just walked right into the building (probably getting lots of dirty looks but whatever), and found the window with a sign above it that said 'APPOINTMENTS ONLY'. No line there. Imagine that.

I showed her my confirmation, then got my ticket with a number on it, and was allowed to wait until I was called. That still took over an hour of waiting, but I amused myself by playing a silly game on my phone (didn't bring my DS). I even managed to get a seat instead of having to stand (the chair was surprisingly comfy, especially since I was sort of crampy).

After my number was called, it literally only took like less than 10 minutes for me to get my driver's license renewed, change my weight (gained 5 pounds since I was 16), take the vision test, pay for the renewal, sign at the 'X' multiple times, AND get my picture taken and my thumbprint scanned. I'd say the whole process took about 5 minutes, not including me having to walk across the building to the eye testing chart, and to the photo-taking area (the lady had to take my picture twice since it didn't save the first time, and my fingerprints are faint so it took awhile to scan).

Then I was out of there!

So, yes, very glad I made that appointment, because I would've been pissed if I stood outside all day, for something that only took 5 minutes to do.

Afterward, I went to the mall (specifically the Godiva store) to make up a small Easter basket for the family. It's very cute! There's a milk chocolate bunny, a package of chocolate eggs (of various flavors), and a package of 8 white chocolate chicks. I got that box especially for my mom, though I'm sure I'll be able to eat half one or two. They're delicious, since I had one as a free sample a couple weeks ago. I would have bought more chocolate, but decided to wait, as it will all be half price on Monday. X3;; That's when I'll get myself a whole flat of Cadbury Creme Eggs.


Now, I will commence to let myself bleed out and hope it ends by Sunday.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)

So, of course -- of course -- I started my period today. Today, when I expected it last weekend, and when I have an appointment tomorrow at the DMV. AAAAAAAAAAAAARGH. Tomorrow morning, even, just to make things worse. I feel so stabbity about this. I'm totally going to chug Advil tomorrow since I have no Midol.

And, even better, the weather has taken a turn for the worse, so it's windy and cold and there's rain. There will be rain tomorrow.

DMV visit is just to renew my driver's license, so nobody worry that I did anything bad. XP Hopefully, I will be in and out in a reasonable amount of time, or I might slaughter people in the waiting room.

I'm just hoping that I bleed out early (that sounds so terrible to say) because I was going to wear a white dress on Easter. DX

At least I have a whole package of Hershey's chocolate bars. I will EAT THEM ALL.

windandwater: (Oro?)
*stabs ovaries*
*is a lump of not moving*

I think this is the period where I eat everything in sight. I'm having cravings, but I'm not sure what for. I just demolished half a bag of Cheetos, some pecan Turtles, and a Blow-Pop (sour apple). This after having a Lava Flow smoothie (IRONY I KNOW BUT IT WAS DELICIOUS). And I'm still hungry for dinner.

There's also Hagen-Daz ice cream and a caramel turtle pie in the freezer. And one blessed package of Cadbury Creme Eggs.

I just might survive.
windandwater: (Oro?)
It's cold, raining, and I just had a bowl of loaded baked potato soup while watching the compulsory ice dancing portion of the Olympics.

Torrential rain? Check.
High winds? Check.
Booming thunder? Check.
Lightning that makes the electronics in the house flicker? Check.
Tornado warnings? Check.
Snow and/or hail in MoVal? Check.
Bitter cold? Check.

It's official, I'm in a miserable mood because of the weather. I can't wait until this weather stops. I might even have to go shopping -- and actually buy things -- to boost my mood up.
windandwater: (Oro?)


Found it! Looks like the epicenter was pretty close, relatively speaking.
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
Looks like it's technology fail day around here. Gaia has died on me, LJ isn't sending me comment reply e-mails, and my connection is super slow. I suppose this is a message from the powers that be that I should play video games on my DS.

windandwater: (Oro?)
Whenever someone says something equivalent to: "Oh, it's so cold! That means global warming doesn't exist!" it sort of makes me want to punch them, because it shows that they're ignorant of what changes global warming actually causes.

Icecaps, the Gulf Stream, and the Ice Ages. Knowledge. Get you some.

Also, the Azores. Added because I like that word and they're also relevant to this topic.
windandwater: (Smile!)

Or for those of you who don't celebrate: HAPPY FOURTH THURSDAY IN NOVEMBER!

And, since people tend to be endlessly curious about what gets served during holiday meals at my house, here is the menu for dinner.

Hor d'oeuvres:

~ Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms
~ Crab Rangoons
~ Chocolate Chip Cookies


~ Roast Turkey with Cornbread Stuffing
~ Prime Rib (brought by my cousin)


~ Loaded Mashed Potatoes
~ Wild Rice
~ Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce
~ Mixed Lemon Herb Vegetables


~ Apple Pie
~ Lemon Custard Pie
~ Flan

Still deciding whether I should make crescent rolls, but I think there's enough starches in the meal. Also, I am quite proud of the fact that I don't always make things from scratch thank-you-very-much. I'm pretty much handling all the side dishes and the apple pie this year. And I'm not sure if my mom is actually putting the stuffing into the bird, or making it separate in a dish. If it's seperate, I'll probably do that, too. I ate a cookie already. My dad just had to run to the store to buy more mushrooms.

Yay food! ♥
windandwater: (Oro?)
I think I just had my first opthalmic migraine. It's strange and I couldn't see very well, with my glasses on or off. It seems to be going away now though.

At least this happened on my day off.


Vision-related problems always scare me.
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
Why am I awake.

Why am I at work?

Oh right. They're calling me in every day this week because the State is here.

windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
So. Uh. I seem to have gotten myself a job.

Yeah, I know. It's shocking to me, too.

cut for job-related babble )

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that I have to be at work on Monday.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
We're good for Halloween at my place!

I didn't plan on doing much besides watching movies and hanging about (and, in my case, passing out candy to the kiddies). :P Food and munchies will have to be bought or brought I has no monies. And will you guys be spending the night? I need to know so I can set up the bedrooms.

Also, try to be at least a little holiday-ish? You don't have to come in costume, but a little fun is always fun.
windandwater: (Not Supposed To Be Here)
At this moment, I am rather blessing the fact that I was an awkward and ungainly child, as well as annoying and unattractive, especially during my middle school years. Oh, and not a boy.


Because one of my middle school teachers just pled guilty to 74 counts of child molestation.

I wasn't in his History class specifically (IIRC my history class would join up with his for projects and such), but I knew who he was because he was a Very Important Teacher. And his kids were in the same grade as me. Still, seeing this makes me really upset since he always seemed to be the 'cool' teacher that all the kids wanted to be on the good side of.

Unfortunately, looks like that good side has a bad side.
windandwater: (Oro?)
I hope everyone had a good Mother's Day weekend. ^^ Mine went reasonably well, considering that I cooked dinner, and my mom actually liked the present I gave her (which was inexpensive! score!). For those who are nosy and like to know, here was my menu:

~ Baked Spiral Sliced Ham (with honey glaze)
~ Cornbread stuffing
~ Steamed baby potato and vegetable blend
~ Apple pie with Cinnabon frosting

Not too adventurous, but it was only the three of us since my Aunt and her family were elsewhere and didn't spend the day at our house.

On another note, I went out shopping (or rather, looking) with Aoi on Saturday, during one of our regular 'stop being a hermit' outings. At the mall, we saw a woman who was dressed rather inappropriately. Just from the way she was dressed, I knew two things upon seeing her:

1) She wasn't wearing panties


2) She waxed her nether regions.

How did I know this?

Her pants were that damn low.

I swear, as she walked by, it was like a car crash. Me and Aoi both wondered if her pants were just going to drop straight off. It was horrible in a traumatizing way. Do people just not look in mirrors anymore? DON'T YOU FEEL A DRAFT?!

*stabs ovaries*

Not unexpected but still annoying. And messing up my plans for the week.

windandwater: (Mistress Sera Says)
Wonderful. All I need to see this time of night is a real life scene of domestic violence right outside my window. As in, on the street in front of my house (where that stolen car was).


And I even know what prompted it, since the Dad was loud enough for me to hear, in my bedroom, with the window closed (though I did watch what happened because I heard weird things outside and wanted to know what was going on).
windandwater: (Ritsuka is not amused)
It is now 78 degrees, cloudy, and there's a chilly wind blowing. The low will be 48 degrees. Last night, it was 90 degrees until 10pm at night, and I have the AIM transcript to prove it.

windandwater: (Fail to Get a Life)
So. It is boiling hot again today. 90+ degree temperatures, when last week it was bitterly cold and we were having highs of 50 degrees. But by this weekend, we'll probably be in the 60s or so!

Fuck you, weather.

And fuck TPTB, because now that I have switched to shorts to wear about the house (I had previously been wearing sweat pants and long PJ bottoms because of the cold), I ended up dropping my space heater on my leg. x___X;; It hit my thigh, scraped down when it hit my knee, then fell on my foot. So now I have a lovely gash just above my knee that is probably going to bruise spectacularly, as well as bleeding from the cut. And if I had been wearing my sweat pants (which are nice and thick), I probably would just have a bit of a bruise instead of this... very obvious and painful wound. And we don't have the big bandaids in the house, so I had to put the little ones along the cut to stop the bleeding.

*shakes fist at the world*


Mar. 31st, 2009 02:20 pm
windandwater: (Ritsuka is not amused)
So a couple hours ago, maybe a half hour after my last post, someone rang the doorbell. I wondered if it was UPS or something with a package, so I got up and looked out my window to see if there was a truck or it was one of the retarded neighbor kids who like to kick their soccer balls into our backyard.

It was a police car.

I had a mild freak out moment as I hurried down the stairs (still in my PJ pants too), wondering if I had accidentally tripped the house alarm system -- whoo Brinks! They actually do monitor your house and call the police -- but I remembered turning off the alarm when I went downstairs for my breakfast so I was worried.

Answered the door.

There is a plainclothes cop outside with a pad of paper in his hand. He says hello. I say hello back. He asks me if I know if I've seen the silver car out there. What silver car, I ask. That one parked right there. I open the security screendoor and step onto my porch to look. There is, indeed, a silver car parked on the curb in front of my house (right in front of my window actually). Oh, I say. I don't know who owns that car but it's been there since yesterday, I think. You don't know who owns it? No, I answer. I just figured it was one of the neighbors' because everyone parks on the street. Yes, he says, it's a public street. I ask what's wrong.

The car had been stolen.


I am totally shocked and look at the officer -- there is now another police car in the street, and a crime scene investigations truck. There is a bunch of people swarming the car. Oh! Well, I just saw the car yesterday, the afternoon, I think. I just saw it there and didn't see anyone in it or park it or anything. It was just there, so I ignored it, thinking it was a neighbors'.

The officer thanks me, takes my name, and then leaves.


I watched the drama from my window (after I closed the front door obviously). The police continued to search the car, and eventually the owners of the car showed up after an hour or so. Then the police left, and the owners called a tow truck, and now everyone is gone.

Wow. I've never seen anything like that before.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera)
Because some people *coughcough*[ profile] luscious_sarah*coughcough* have expressed interest in seeing this, and I saw a meme along these lines awhile ago, here is a picture of me as a baby.


The picture under the cut is the equivalent of a cute nuclear bomb. You are warned. I will bear no blame if the picture causes you to claw your eyes out over the overwhelming cute.

1) Yes, that is me. As a baby.
2) Yes, that is a watermelon.
3) Yes, you may froth at the mouth over the cute. =__=;; I'll just give you the expression in my icon over it.

I'm in such a bad and antisocial mood right now. And it's cold and raining. =___=;; I apologize in advance if I take it out on anyone or act cranky.
windandwater: (Mistress Sera)
I think I'll cut this because I might get mean or ranty or long and this is mostly just something I've been thinking about for a few days now.

babble about an RL thing )
windandwater: (FEFFIROFF)
Have escaped the house for the library. \o/ It's cold here (not complaining about the air conditioning today), and I gorged on McD's on the drive over, and most importantly I will be away from my parents for like 6 hours. Whoo~

But it doesn't matter because most of you bitches on my flist are at AX. I haet u.
windandwater: (Wankery)
Yes, I've read the news about the latest Supreme Court ruling (re: child rape and death penalty).

No, I do not plan on saying any more on the subject unless asked in a comment or some-such. I have certain opinions that I'm pretty sure would be considered unfavorable by many, and I don't like to cause undue RL drama in my LJ. Subjects like this are very touchy and above all, personal, and I'd hate to somehow alienate people whom I consider friends, let alone start a fight about this.

Back to your regularly scheduled flist surfing.
