If anyone ever asks how music can be your boyfriend, just send them this link: (warning, semi-nsfw, but tasteful. ish.)

Today, I cleaned, bought a caltrain pass, avoided temptation, played nice, and made appearances. I think this is probably a good thing. I've noticed, however, that I'm developing a "party" persona, who takes over my body and expressions whenever I'm going to be around groups of people, or people I don't know well. She's cheerful and bouncy and reminds me oddly of Lesley. Also, she talks a lot about herself. I'm not really sure whether I'm okay with this. I'd honestly rather listen to other people's problems, or talk about some random idea anyway. I just can't seem to come up with topics of conversation which allow me to have any sort of back and forth.

New Year's Resolutions:
1) Don't be afraid to make mistakes. If you end up looking like a fool, you end up looking like a fool, and several days later, you'll laugh about it just as hard as everyone else does. As Tommy in Risky Business says, "Sometimes you just have to say "what the fuck" and make your move. What the fuck gives you freedom. Freedom brings opportunity. Opportunity makes your future." That is, try new things.
2) People are good. Friends are better. You can never have enough friends, and you should strive to keep the ones you have.
2a) Family are the friends you can't get rid of. Remember that and appreciate it more.
3) If you get around to it, exercise. Having endurance is good for more than one thing. Remember to eat better in any case, even if exercise fails you.
4) Be careful of what you do and say. People can get the wrong impression. If you think it's a bad idea, it probably is. You are defined in part by your past actions, and you never really know who's watching/reading.
5) Alcohol is fine. With dinner. In small quantities.
6) The Small-Cobey uncertainty principle and corollary remains in effect. Stop trying to game the system. It's like trying to find a particle and know how fast it's going at the same time. Doesn't work.
7) Feeling things means you're human. Don't try to not feel. This may be related to #1.
8) Love yourself before you try to love someone else. They aren't a substitute for things you feel you lack. And you aren't a substitute for things they feel they lack.

They're not really measurable. I could succeed or fail at any of these and twist it so it looked like I failed or succeeded. But they're resolutions, of a kind. At least, good things to think about?

I am cold and tired and stressed out. On the upside (yes, really), my hips hurt. Too much to do, too little time to do it in.

The holiday party was extravagant and involved bad mashups of 80s hair metal and 90s hiphop. There were some good mashups too, but I can't believe that the dj mangled Journey quite that badly. My date was fabulous and lovely and a terribly good dancer.

I have determined also that I would make a very bad submissive.

Henry is here, although bereft of hat, which is important, given how cold it is outside this week.

And finally, Scrabulous is fun.

In an amusing follow up, it turns out that Dobromir did get his trip to Hawaii, so I don't feel particularly bad about not having a birthday present for him.

The party was good, I drank a little more than I originally wanted, but still did not get drunk, and drank significantly more water/non-alcoholic things than alcoholic drinks. And also, pomegranate martinis are a generally bad idea. Bookstore crawling was also good, and, although I did not pick up anything particularly random, a good time was had by all. It culminated in getting chicken adobo and being very very full by the time I went to the party.

I also found a new BFF 4-eva. Just don't ask.

Thing that I am happy about: that extra hour of sleep.
Thing that I am less happy about: people drama. It gets tiring after a while.
Thing that I am working on: Having patience. And losing some of the bitter edge to my sarcasm.

I went to Dobromir's bachelor party on Saturday (it made sense for me to be there - there were about twice as many girls as guys). We "sat around and watched porn." The groom got very drunk, and "his grandfather was there." The "plot" of the "porn movie" might have involved a bartender giving a groom a tequila body shot and perhaps lots of dancing at a place called the Buddha Bar. It may have also involved chains and bowling balls, but I don't really remember much beyond that. It was a great "porno flick", and I met lots of nice and fun people. There was Bon Jovi, too, so you know that makes it an automatically good night.

I personally will now no longer have peppermint schnapps in anything other than hot chocolate. Taste of toothpaste + (Jager || other hard alcohol) = bad. In this case, a liquid cocaine shot almost did me in, but I persevered and woke up in the morning with a hang over predominantly from not sleeping enough (and not the alcohol). In order to counteract this, I then stayed in bed until about 530pm, at which point, I took a shower (coz, damn...) and went to play world of warcraft, where I got really distracted by backstory writing and didn't contribute much. It kind of makes me sad, because I love my character, but she has no idea what the hell she's supposed to be doing and is now in the Twisting Nether, looking for an old friend.

And today, I've gone to brunch & eaten pancakes, had a corset fitting, and am now at home, debating on the wisdom of things like cleaning my apartment, going to borders and buying season 5 of Buffy, getting food, visiting the grocery store, reading a book, or watching Star Wars (IV-VI) or Rome (season 1).

It is not a bad day to be me.

Gordon Biersch Pilsner, tequila shot, Jagerbomb x2, vodka shot x3, probably equivalent to one bottle of budlight (WHY do people drink that?!) & large quantities of dancing in 3" heels.

I still owe Chris at least one more tequila shot. Oh well - tequila is drinkable only when salted and limed.

I don't know. )

I am in such a good mood today. I know my posts are usually doom and gloom, but today? Seriously, nothing can bring me down.

I woke up this morning and decided that I was going to sleep in a little because I was vaguely exhausted. Got up and found a pair of jeans in my closet that I haven't worn in a while (like, years) and decided to try them on. Lo and behold, they FIT! And looked GOOD!!! So now I'm prancing around in black jeans and awesome boots and feeling very sexy.

And then I bestowed chocolate upon the tech team, and got assigned new responsibilities, which include coding! (In Javascript, admittedly, but that's still pretty good anyway...) And now I'm so swamped with things to do!

So, quickly, on with the listening to Gwen Stefani and Beyonce and Kelis. Today is totally a day for girly hip-hop. But first, sauntering to a meeting, sashaying with the best of them.

With the approach of spring, the passing of Valentine's Day, and the release of various new dance singles, I find myself, as always around this time of year, with a strong desire to get into trouble. It's a bit on the problematic side, since, as far as I can tell, the ups are much less than the downs.

But, I'm not big on screwing things up, unless I'm intentionally not thinking. I'm just sort of feeling the pull of whimsy, and it's not doing me any good. What to say, what not to say, what not to say and just do instead -- so many choices...the mood and music dictates a lot of what I feel.

Although I really do love dancing, even if the music is somewhat simple and repetitive. Makes the best dance stuff anyway.

My company's ski trip in Tahoe was, for me, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. We left campus around 530 on Wednesday morning, and returned Thursday at 4pm.

Getting there. )

At the lodge )

Skis? SKIS? We don't need no steeeenking skis. )

Ah, MTV. )

Alcohol + 20somethings + good cover band = mayhem )

End of the story... )

And that's a wrap.

today, i am happy about: today being friday! ZOMG FRIDAY! This means weekend! ::does a little dance, makes a little love, gets down tonight, whoo-hoo, gets down tonight, whoo-hoo:: (okay, not really, but it's still kind of funny.)

today, i am not so happy about: being dehydrated. Happily, as Mr. Segerman would tell me, I know what I have to do. Drink water.

today, i wish that: I could go back in time to 2 months ago, but this time, I'd have enough guts to say what I really thought and how I really felt instead of waiting until now, when the problem is so immense, it's likely insurmountable.

im' sort of amused by the fact that i have a good two hours of video game music that is perfect to belly dance to because the game was set in the middle east (quest for glory ii: trial by fire)... i can't think of a way to use this information, but it's very entertaining anyway. ;)

Also: (dear lord, I'll never look at potato salad in the same way...)

for those interested in death guild, but didn't understand what max meant with his music description:

requires you to register, but it's free, and there are some decent stations other than deathguild on there. ;) Also, for those into the goth scene, but don't have the music to hand, check it out. I just listened to nin, sisters of mercy, and massive attack. not a bad selection.

I hear the roar of a big machine
Two worlds and in between
Hot metal and methedrine
I hear empire down...

50 years of dance, in 6 minutes:

I know that my entries haven't consisted of much lately, but I swear, you really ought to watch that. These are the pitfalls of working for a company which deals heavily in the internet. ;) Word to your mother.

(Speaking of which, it is mother's day on
