Dear Eighth Grade Me,

on body image )
Don't let the bullies get you down. Don't let moving away from Davis keep you away from horses & your bike. Keep in touch with your friends, they are good people and they love you and you love them. And for the love of god learn to dress yourself in shirts that aren't plaid and oversized, and stop wearing all that cheap jewelery.

Love,
Grad-School You.

- living room
--- remove (black) cat hair from (white) loveseat (yeah, that was perhaps not a good call on my part)
--- Do Something about the blind in the front window -- it's one of those roll-up ones, and the bracket is fuxxed so it falls down a lot and is currently extended all the way so it covers part of the radiator in addition to the window
--- finally figure out how to hook up DVD player so that it actually works? FUCK THAT NOISE

--- clear library books & random papers off table
--- clear coats & scarves off computer stand
- entire flat
--- vacuum
--- mop (well, Swiffer Wet Jet)
--- put up posters? They've been sitting rolled up on the bookshelf since they arrived. :(
Also, the walls of my apartment are weirdly impenetrable. Grr.

..... okay, that actually looks like a fuck of a lot still to do. Uh.

addt'l prep:
- booze run (Wine & Spirits store) DUDE I FINALLY FOUND AN EMPLOYEE WHO IS NICE TO ME THERE. We chatted about Our New Old Governor Jerry Brown. Did you know he used to be involved with Linda Ronstadt?
- mixer/garnish/ice run (Giant Eagle, the local supermarket) OMG LIQUIDS ARE HEAVY
- snack run (Trader Joe's -- MUST FIGURE OUT HOW TO BUS THERE & BACK. Or draft someone to drive me I guess. Eh.) (it turns out it's pretty easy to get there, if I don't mind a 3/4 mile stroll both ways. I mean, I could do a route with less walking and more switching of buses, but I'm an able-bodied young person and it's not that cold out yet, so....) (Being at TJ's made me really happy, actually. My brain associates it with California and delicious things. And it looks like the produce is better there than at Giant Eagle... I may have to go back to buy fruit and veg. And blood orange soda.)

I think Inception broke my brain.

The world always feels a little too bright, a little unreal when I leave a movie theatre. To have this happen when the entire movie has been about reality, or the lack thereof, is difficult to handle.

I have friends who are fascinated by lucid dreaming. I haven't remembered any of my dreams in months, maybe years.

At the end, all I wanted to do was cry for a long time.

so i think i just had a sex dream with Thirteen and Chase. Uh.

(guh.)


eta;; so.... probably Chase. Maybe Wilson? The thing is, it was definitely Thirteen, though she not as involved in the actual sex, but she was definitely there and touching me and watching. And I don't remember who the man was. Possibly a faceless man with a niiiiiice package. So. What does that mean?? Specifically about my sexuality, really. (Less relevantly, the principals from House and I were taking some kind of trip through a desert in an outsize silver-twinkie RV.)

movie rec from Cute Orch Manager: The 25th Hour, Edward Norton

Pacing the Void would be a great title for... something.

Today's Writer's Block: If you had the opportunity to know everything about the person you love, would you take it? Or would you avoid the possibility of getting hurt? Discuss.

- unpack lists from Travels
- orch manager. sigh
- children: having them, teaching them, my perceived ethical obligation to the species to procreate
- sort out thots re: women and beauty and worth

Playing on the internets at work instead of devoting my time to the PACT... But I've been On nonstop all week, so I feel like I deserve this little brain break, such as it is.

For future use: "You'll keep a civil tongue in your head, young lady, or you'll soon find yourself with none at all."

women are not famous for being intelligent, or for high achievement, not the way men are. women are famous for being beautiful -- sometimes in combination with intelligence, achievements, or talents, but also outrageous and inappropriate behaviour, and just as often, beauty is the only trait that brings the woman fame. one of the world's great rarities is a famous woman who is not beautiful.

maybe i'll polish this up and put it somewhere? i almost wanted to write yesterday's paper on sexism, and how the media is ruining women and girls.

So I just thought of a REALLY AWESOME pattern for a scarf. Make that two, actually! Inspired by ThinkGeek <3

The power symbol, reversible in two contrasting colours. (white & black?)
Similarly, a Space Invader. (d. blue & neon green, maybe. Or some other Space-Invaderly colours)

I'm thinking just plain old worsted-weight synthetic yarn, they don't need to be anything fancy. The question is, do I do the background double-sided as well, or just with the strands of yard doubled? (translation: Solid colours, reversible, or with the colours mottled together?)

I NEEEEEEEEED TO MAKE THESE. DAMN YOU, CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME.

I bet they would go fast. Clearly I should just do it and damn the consequences and then I could have GEEKY SCARVES. If knitting didn't fuck me up so badly, I would make tons of them and give them away and sell them on the internets. I SHOULD LEARN HOW TO ACTUALLY WRITE KNITTING PATTERNS SO Y'ALL CAN MAKE THEM INSTEAD.

I just had a terrible thought. What if these scarves already exist? I have the sinking feeling that they may have appeared in Stitch 'n' Bitch. *pout*

edit;; OMG BLACK-AND-WHITE REVERSIBLE PIANO/HARPSICHORD SCARF. (the keys, yo. because lots of harpsichords have white-on-black keyboards instead of black-on-white.) OMG. ALSO, BASS CLEF SCARF??? (start simple. treble clef is much too complex. IT WOULD LOOK AWFUL.)
Dear Self: BREATHE. It's not like we have the funds to buy a bunch of yarn right now anyway.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE HILARIOUS? A KNIT PILLOW SHAPED LIKE A BASSOON REED. I COULD LEARN TO CABLE FOR THE TURBAN AND EVERYTHING. OH GOD I NEED TO DO THIS. !!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!

.

MAN my ideaphoria is turned up WAY HIGH right now. I have been having CRAZY Torchwood plotbunnies, too. (DISCLOSURE TIME: I probably spend more time daily reading fanfiction than anything else (except on some days, watching television). I have, at various points in my life, written fanfiction. I might do again, and soon. BEWARE.) (I sort of feel like the past year or two have been about really owning my geekery. It's an ongoing process. But the more I am honest and upfront about it, the more it pleases me.)

OBVIOUSLY THE WAY TO HAVE IDEAS IS TO NOT GET ENOUGH SLEEP, YOU GUYS!!!!!!! :D :D

Flatmate: Maaaaan, the dishwasher smells bad.

For serious. It was all I could do not to say anything about how "it smells like death BECAUSE YOU DON'T RINSE FOOD OFF THINGS BEFORE YOU PUT THEM IN."

Rich Capparela: We started with Morning Mood, then Aase's Death, Anitra's Dance, and finally, Inna Gadda Davida.

Oh, Classical Music Radio. :) Oh, Grieg.

The kittens had fleas, so they've been confined to my room all weekend and we've been having frequent Happy Fun Flea Comb Time. They were at the vet today, though, and got all their vaccinations, and a flea bath, and also tapeworm meds, because they had lots of tapeworms because of the fleas. Now they're at home again, and they have the run of the house now that they are free of fleas, and I washed all my bedding this morning, and they're playing chase and scuffling and being adorable and since the tapeworms are gone, now they can get chubby!

Well not too chubby but they won't be so skinny and bony which will be good.

Black kitten might be Dizzy -- he chases his tail a lot!
