My friend Casey just got engaged to the most perfect guy of all time. I cannot express to you how golden this couple is. I am so incredibly happy for her! :)

Thing I'm happy about: One day more, and then it's the weekend...
Thing I'm less happy about: One day more. It should be tomrrow already, thank you.
Thing I'm working on: I still need to unpack. But at least I bought some plane tickets.

Really, I should start this (and every?) entry like this: "OMG, NO ONE LOVES ME. I'm so alone and unloved and unwanted and as terribly overweight as a bloated beached whale. And, some other angsty stuff."

At least, that would be true, if I listened to dB. But since I'm not listening to him (LALALA, NOT LISTENING (at least on this point)), this entry will be full of light and princesses. Actually, I'm lying. That's all the light and princesses you get.

So I got those pictures developed. They were very odd and consisted of Fleet Week from 2005, Halloween from 2005, my apartment when I first moved in, and a picture of a brachiosaurus in the Chicago airport. Not worth digitizing, but worth developing the film.

Thing I am happy about: 3 day week! Lots of stuff to get done, but it's better to be busy than bored.
Thing I am less happy about: Again, it seems like a win-win day. Something will probably happen to change my mind on my way home, but until then...
Thing I am working on: Finishing up that work that I was looking at. Also, figuring out what I'm going to wear to the holiday party. Suggestions?

Man, I love sleeping in. I can't believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. At least, it's a short week, what with Thanksgiving and all.

I watched "Secretary" last night. I don't know if any of the people reading this have seen it, but it's a rather bizarre movie. I've decided that I really like Maggie Gyllenhaal (at least, in this movie). Bunches of people on multiple coasts recommended this, so I figured I had to check it out eventually. As it turns out, having a Blockbuster nearby is great for immediate movie gratification and having a "AAAAHHHHH, MUST DO SOMETHING" need inspired me to walk there. In some weird way, I kind of wish I could be a secretary like her.

I feel like I should get out of the house and go hiking or something ludicrous like that, but you know what? It's kind of cold outside. Guess I'll figure something out, though.

Thing I am happy about: AC/DC. Three chords of pure rock god-dom. It's the same three chords in every song, and they have tons of songs. And it's just feel good music. Unsurprisingly, it's making me feel happy. Also, it's eggnog season again.
Thing I am less happy about: Discovering that my disposable camera expired in February. I can't say as I've ever had film expire before. I guess I'll track down a developing place or something, and see if they can get anything out of it. I don't even know what's on here.
Thing I am working on: eating healthier. I spent the last week in New York eating practically no lunch and about 6 desserts a day. This is fine if your metabolism is great at digesting LARGE QUANTITIES OF SUGAR. Mine is only okay at this. Although, if you consider what I had for breakfast (apple turnover, yogurt, chocolate, eggnog), I'm probably not doing so well with this.

I got to see Daniel last night! And sing karaoke really really badly off-key! And drink turquoise drinks! It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be.

I'm wearing a ridiculously awesome outfit right now -- popart graphic top with grey, black and red circles on a field of white, dress pants, an awesome white half-trench, and my new shoes (patent leather mary janes). it's kind of an odd outfit for me, but it looks good if you had no idea that this wasn't the kind of thing that i often (ever) wear.

Thing I'm happy about: my three hour meeting at 9am this morning during which i was helpful and productive!
Thing I'm less happy about: it's been a good day. Shockingly, I have little to be less happy about. Maybe that I oversteamed my milk in that last latte. Or that my feet hurt a little from these shoes.
Thing I'm working on: getting through the next hour of work.

There was a wedding (congratulations to Nancy and Albert!!) and hanging out with gamers and making pizza in the city and getting hit on by a 21 year old and sleeping on a loveseat and more hanging out with gamers and end of World of Warcraft tabletop and pretty views of the Bay late late at night and tapping a deer while driving back from said pretty views. End of weekend.

I'm endeavoring to make this weekend as much fun, though the only concrete plan I have is homework. This is midly terrifying -- I have homework, and it may not be simple. I'm taking two classes (with a third starting in November). The first one is a marketing class taught according to a curriculum at the Haas MBA school at Berkeley. The second is an intro to Java class at Stanford. The third is (what else?) New Kingdom Egypt literature, also at Stanford. So, Mondays and Tuesdays (and eventually Thursdays) will be bad for me trying to do anything. Which is why I went to see a movie at 10pm last night. Never mind my propensity for staying up late in general anyway.

Ironically, I'm more awake after a week of not drinking caffeine (minus a small incident where I forgot that Dr Pepper contains caffeine and drank a full glass of it before being rather embarrassed) and sleeping too little than I have been when I used to drink lots of coffee and sleep too much. I'm wondering if the caffeine had some weird interaction with my body chemistry that didn't used to exist. Slowing metabolism? Who knows. In any case, I may just have to give up caffeine permanently, as much as I love coffee and tea. It also probably helps that Lou is staying in my apartment -- there's no way in hell *anyone* who broke in would get close enough to hurt me with Lou around. Probably this certainty is making me sleep better. Who knows?

I'm REI-bound in the next week or so. I'm likely going camping/hiking/somethingorother in Yosemite in a couple of weeks for a weekend. I'm terribly excited -- I miss being outdoors. And drinking tea (caffeinated or otherwise) in slightly cold weather. I'll never admit to sometimes liking being cold, but sometimes it's kind of nice, despite how much I'll complain about it.

I need to write a snippet, but I'm having problems thinking of something to write about. I write so much in my livejournal and was planning a DnD campaign for 6 months that I've kind of forgotten how to write about something that isn't terribly concrete. I really want to go home and sit in some crunchy leaves and write about being in Massachusetts sitting in a pile of crunchy leaves, but it's a long trip to write a snippet. I'm sure I'll think of something - suggestions are welcome, fiction & non-fiction alike.

Now I have Dido's "White Flag" stuck in my head. Have a video:

So I got to ride in a Z at over 120 mph. Thoughts:

Car pretty. Goes fast. Sounds loud. I'm gonna die. Do it again?

I'm definitely in need of some crazy in my life - right now, it's all contained within me, and that's a bad way to be. I need a car, so I can go drive to the beach at midnight, look up at the moon, and get arrested by cops.

Maybe not the latter.

It's almost Friday - this weekend came quickly. Amazingly, the caffeine detox is going relatively well. I have SO MUCH ENERGY, holy crap, I cannot express this to you. Sadly, still suffering from a headache, but don't worry, Rico Suave is there to save me.

Inspired by watching:

I've also since decided that this is an "I ate toast and got angsty about it" blog, not just the run of the mill "I ate toast this morning" blog. I can't decide whether toast with angst is better than toast without.

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.

so... happy thought for today: caltrain. i like trains. i like riding on trains, i love the way they sound, and it's all fabulous. ;)

18 days left til christmas.
prismakaos: (Default)
happy thought for the day: it's sunny, and thus i don't feel the need to be wrapped up in winter clothing to go outside. yay sun!
prismakaos: (Default)
happy thought for the day: i may have an apartment. (no cats allowed, though, which isn't so happy. and it's a one year lease. so i guess i'm around here for a while.)

[edit 7pm pst:] wait, wait, i'm wrong. i have an apartment. it's in menlo park. it's a 6 mo lease, and they allow pets (i think). it's like two blocks away from borrone's. ;)

happy thought for the day: i'm not on a plane.

also meme: Love in Harry Potter? Can't say I was too surprised... )

additional happy thought for the day, since the last was posted while i was still in MA and may therefore not count: my hotel room has "high-speed" internet... praise the gods for being in silicon valley..

i saw a giant fishtank full of giant fish. it was sort of odd...but nifty nonetheless...

happy thought for the day: being warm. good lord, what i wouldn't give to be warm....

happy thought for the day: (actually, it's more of an OMGWTF thought, but hey...) California tomorrow. I'll get in sometime in the afternoon.
prismakaos: (Default)
happy thought for the day: hot chocolate. with marshmallows.
prismakaos: (Default)
happy thought for the day: the fact that i can spend the entire day in pajamas, if i wanted to, and no one would care. yay pajamas.

and who said that it was okay for every goddamn apartment in california (near a caltrain station) to be no cheaper than 850/mo? and a decent place, where i won't get murdered in my sleep, is nearly a thousand bucks a month. the worst part about it is that if i had a car, i could get an apt on the seaside for that. wtf? give me a good job with a good company, and i'm still beggared before I turn thirty.,+Pacifica,+CA+94044&iwloc=A&hl=en right on the damn seaside. bloody hell.

i just want a hint manual to my life. why can't i have a hint manual? at least then i wouldn't feel quite like i was banging my head against the wall again and again and again. it's like those computer games, where you have to buy something really expensive, and you can only bargain him down so much, but you've wasted all your gold on armor or whatever so you have to go out and kill the creatures and steal their gold. but of course, the creatures inevitably kill you more than once, so it just becomes futile. and with the hint manual, you'd at least KNOW before you spent your gold on armor that you'd need to buy this quest item. hint manuals for life; i think someone would make a killing producing these things.

oh, yes, and i would LOVE some cheese with my whine.

happy thought for the day: I put up my christmas tree. Yes, the one from school. With all its ornaments. And we played lots and lots of christmas carols and I really just sort of want to sleep under it tonight. We'll see--the dogs'll probably eat me in the night...

happy thought for the day: OMGWTFBBQ, it's SNOWING!!ONEone1!!1 Wow, it's SHINY.
