eeee valentine dragons!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

They have an in-game system of sending valentines. If I know you have a scroll I'm going to send you one, if I haven't already (they only let you send one every 10 min). Even if I know you don't check your dragons anymore. :)

SPREADING THE LOVE LIKE WARM SQUISHY BUTTER AWWW YEAH

  • I'm getting better. The whole forcing myself to eat until my body stops treating food with suspicion seems to be working. Balancing it with lots of fluids, which seems to help. Small snacks instead of actual meals also seems to be the right way to go, especially since my stomach still likes to be all like NO after ten bites of anything. Not exactly 3 meals a day friendly right there.

    Surprisingly so far what has been pretty well accepted right now is cheese. I would think it would be something that would make me feel horrible but apparently this is not my week to be dairy-sensitive. So the last few days one of my primary nibbles is chunks of hard sharp yummy. [livejournal.com profile] grinninfoole treated me to a small brick of Gruyere on Thursday and today at the farmers' market the lady at the Chase Hill Dairy Farm stand gave me the remainder sample chunk of her sold out Queso Veijo, so for right now at least it's an easily indulged craving.

  • Speaking of which, I did indeed go out to lunch with [livejournal.com profile] grinninfoole on Thursday, though considering my digestive issues I opted to have chicken noodle soup instead of Bueno y Sano. I do enjoy our lunch dates, it seems to be a nice check-in/how are we doing for both of us and have some frank discussion about depression, recovery, efforts at being more social/adult/goal oriented and how all that's going for us. Other than my health issues, we both seem to be on an upswing at the same time, which is excellent.

  • D&D went decently on Thursday night; after a group consensus that combat and general gameplay needed to be tightened, I think overall we all did better. Apparently putting a chart down on my combat cheat sheet listing all my dice roll values helped me a lot - a fair amount of what slows me down during game, believe it or not, is trying to figure out what 17+26-4 is. We seem to be approaching the end of our campaign, and while I like playing Mare and enjoy the band of characters we've got going, I think I'm in agreement with [livejournal.com profile] avalon616 here - epic tier is kinda rough and aspects of it are starting to poke me in the "this is why you never liked endgame raiding in WoW either" place. Starting to. They haven't quite gotten there yet. We'll see how we progress.

  • Work is actually pretty good now that back to school rush is over and the work study minions are starting to know what they're doing. The bad part is that my layout's been accepted so now I'm on the profoundly unfun bit of website design where I have to translate pretty shit in photoshop into CSS. Eugh. And I still have Other job stuff to do so if I can find a bit of time to work on that this weekend, next week should be nice, money wise.

    Oh and yesterday (well actually today, but never mind) was my boss's birthday. Apparently most of a slice of red velvet cake doesn't disagree with me either, go figure. ITS does not scrimp on the baked goods, seeing as besides the red velvet there was this cake called "to die for" that looked too much like diabetes on a plate to even want to get near, but damn. Also ITS has a fair amount of Polish folks. There was a rousing chorus of "Sto Lat" as the cakes were getting cut.

  • Kiddos are here, and for the most part, behaving themselves. Kidzilla's missing front tooth is ridiculously cute when she giggles:



    See? Oh here, since Lil'Beast decided to butt into the picture taking have a bonus.



    We had a nice visit this morning from their grandparents ([livejournal.com profile] chirping_monkey's side) who dropped off a kitchen playset for them. Lil'Beast kept coming down the stairs and serving us invisible cakes. These are the moments that keep me from eating him, I swear.

    Every so often I have an "AAAAH TOO FAST STOP GROWING" with them. Between Kidzilla's facial window, having to raise her bike seat this afternoon, and the fact that Lil'beast is now too big for his PJs, tricycle and almost his sandals... yeah. They've both changed so much in the two years I've been regularly part of their weekends on this end of MA. And yeah, I realize it's what kids do, lol, come on, I'm still having issues with my nephew being legal to drink and getting tattoos and macking on women cause he tall and cute. Somewhere in the back of my brain he stopped growing around 12 and his siblings and Alejandra all stopped accordingly as well, no matter what their facebook statuses say. One of those things, I guess.

  • We also managed to make it out to the farmers market, as I mentioned earlier. Came home with ingredients for some ghost pepper chili (which I will not be eating, thank you) and I've been bugging [livejournal.com profile] cell23 for two weeks to make potato leek soup, so he got stuff for that too. Noms are afoot. And the kids got maple candy and cheese and cookies so they as usual made out like bandits. I didn't personally get too much this time around, but I'm thinking next week I'll stop by the astarte farms tent, buy up a whole big bag of their end of season tomatoes as well as any I get off Icky and Sticky in the next week or so, plus a few other bits and pieces and try my hand at making an army sized batch of tomato sauce in the crock pot.

  • New eggs in the cave today! I know I know "you still play that game? lolwut?" yeah yeah shut up.

    Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!


Yeah, that's kinda life as I know it right now. In a few hours it'll be time for me and some of the crew to head down to Northampton for burlesque, and then tomorrow I think there's apple picking happening since we didn't get to go for Kidzilla's birthday. Definitely creeping on up to Fall... cannot wait...

The problem with summertime + not having a regular 9-5 gig is that my bedtime starts drifting later and later until suddenly it's early and less early. I suppose it's just nature taking over - I'm kind of naturally nocturnal. Having a parent working second shift for most of your childhood will do that to you - you start treasuring the opportunities to stay up late so you can hang out with them. I just never got out of the habit.

Last night I went with [livejournal.com profile] avalon616 down to Tower Theater in South Hadley to attend the last (for a while) Repo! The Genetic Opera shadowcast. I generally don't like shadowcasts and callback type shows (no, not a big Rocky person either, though I like the movie itself), but I ended up having a good time at this one. Though I will note with a shake of my head that my Henchgirl outfit was insanely better than the stage henchgirl... considering I put that outfit together in 20 minutes in a cave with a box of scraps? yeah.* And I'll give the gal playing Giles Nathan props - she had the Repo Man coat and mask and everything down. Also the chickie doing Blind Mag? Hawt.

Okay, we might have gone for the express purpose of enjoying cute girls in gothy outfits. Maybe.

Got home at 3am and slept in until 1. Ooops. Guess I needed the sleep.

Despite the late start, I've had quite the productive day. Went swimming, went shopping, watched Torchwood and Thundercats, played furniture tetris with [livejournal.com profile] avalon616 and [livejournal.com profile] cell23 and a very pretty but large/unweildy desk, and even got a bit of stargazing in, so it's not like I lost the day or anything. Oh and I finished beading The Witch:



She kinda came out looking a bit like Catherine Zeta-Jones this time. I'm okay with this. Alas, fun part is over - now comes the tedious icky bit where I cast her off the loom and weave all the warp threads in. In case you couldn't tell, "finishing" a piece is my least favorite bit. I also haven't figured out quite how to "finish" her either. Some experiments with mats and frames might be in order.

I bought new pots today. At some point tomorrow morning I have to nip down to Annies for more dirt and repot the tomato plants one last time, since they're getting a bit out of hand. After that I have to split up the cukes into the tomatoes' old pots so they have some breathing room. Goo (the strawberry) is very happy where she is, flowering like crazy and putting out fruit right and left. Still rather boggled that not only did I manage to keep six plants alive this summer, five of them put out edible stuff. Kinda psyched that one of the tomatoes is just about ready to slice up and nom, in a "HEY I GREW THAT" sort of way. Still on the lookout for a black coleus I can take a pinch off of, though. May have to make a field trip to Amherst or Smith and scour their landscaping for some one day. Either that or wait until the next time I go to NY - there was a planter not too far from the Megabus pickup point that had the EXACT type of coleus I want, but I didn't have a bottle of water on me last time I was there. Next time, Gadget. Not gonna post the plant pictures, but if you want to admire my tommy-toes, here's my OMG! PLANTS picasa album.

...it's late. I should stop nattering about plants and other inanities and think about going to bed... or something.

* The scales are tipped in my favor to begin with since at the last minute I opted to forgo the practical but still cute ankle boots for patent leather knee hi platform heels. Half the compliments I got for the cosplay were for the boots alone. My feet and calves were KILLING me when I got home and everything below the waist was sore from being in them all evening, but it was so worth it for the compliment whoring factor.

April Fools Day sounds like a great day to give up caffeine. At least the stuff by way of coffee and soda - chocolate and Prince of Wales tea is a bit much to ask right now. Still considering how much coffee and soda I knock back, that's a severe reduction in my whole being one with the caffeinated cosmos thing. I'm also not fool enough to think this will be a permanent take (I do love my coffee and Pepsi so so much) but I should be able to get through a month without it, right? (...right?) We'll see where we are on May 1.

Oh god what am I doing?


Naw, seriously, it'll be okay. Gonna have a nice bottle of Wild Cherry Pepsi at D&D tonight, and that'll be it. This will be good for me. Really. (Right?)

Been a low key weekend so far with the kiddos. I object to it being this cold still - two sixty+ days and suddenly 40 degrees with a wind chill is suddenly cold again. Brrr. Oh well. It can't last too much longer right? There are robins and crocuses and shit, it's got to get warm sometime. Hopefully it's not going to do the New England thing where one week it's snowing and the next it's bloody 90 degrees. I shit you not, that happens here almost every Spring.

I find myself worrying about people today; seems like its been a long dark winter across the board, and not just for me. Again... can't stay dark/cold for much longer right? I take that metaphorically as well as literally.

I heard this morning that Diana Wynne Jones passed away after a long battle with lung cancer. I honored her memory by putting Howl's Moving Castle and its sequels on my PBS wish list. PBS is really good for replacing books I've lost over the years - so far I've got six heading my way that I'm super excited about. I seem to be in the process of filling out/replacing my Vorkosigan saga, Tripod Trilogy, Patternist and Xenogenesis series, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the Hawk and Fisher books, not to mention almost done with Harry Potter (still need 1 and 3 in the correct size) and starting the Young/Cat Wizard series and Kushiel's Legacy. On the other hand GODDAMN [livejournal.com profile] cell23 and I need bookshelves like whoa. :P

I don't know, not much really going on in Andee Land right now. Honestly, I'm okay with that. Quiet spells are always welcome.

Yay it's the green holiday!

There's a part of me that only recognizes holidays by their colors, so today I'm all GREEN and next major one I'll be all YELLOW PINK AQUA AND LAVENDER. Actually that's the only part of Easter I dislike... the attack of the pastel. I'm more of a jewel tones and black sort of person.

But I digress. Happy St. Pats to all my Irish, be ye actually Irish or just in it for the fun/green beer. What the hell, my green turtleneck is clean, I'll throw it on. Maybe with the Green Lantern shirt over it for good measure. :)

Not much to report on today other than the news out of Japan is making me all kinds of D: D: D: (Thankfully everyone I know personally's all right and accounted for.) Also I woke up with this song stuck in my head.



Possibly nsfw due to footage from Silence of the Lambs. Usually a harbinger of an interesting day. Hopefully not in the "Chinese" curse sense, considering my plans today includes MOTHERFUCKING ADULT things like pre-kids weekend cleaning and work, with some 4th season Buffy for seasoning.

Hatch my eggs, I want more new ones.

Had an interesting twist on the old dream where you show up to a final exam to a class you never went to, in that I was preparing for a trip overseas that was happening in a few days and only just realized I never got my passport. The part where it got weird is as I tearing about The House frantic about this my mother (who often shows up in these dreams alive and well) calmly told me to stop freaking out and go look in the freezer with the rest of the Important Papers. Right, okay. Not sure what all my subconscious was trying to impart to me there, but felt it was just off the wall weird enough to note for posterity.

I've never had a passport, incidentally. I should fix this. I'd like to GTFO of the US for a while someday. Still unsure as to where I'd go, but it'd be nice to go somewhere.


I have solved the mystery of why I fell out of the habit of getting up at the ass crack of dawn, seeing as I have started doing it again. Hungry cats. Lily has figured out that the quickest way to wake up her humans is to kick my glasses off my nightstand, the sound of them falling to the floor instantly rouses me. Dick. Also the soporific effects of warm glomphy bedtime companion do nothing for my early rising abilities, especially as he routinely fails to get out of bed until fifteen minutes before he has to be at work. But yeah, apparently kitty needing foodins is a far more effective alarm clock than anything else I've tried. We'll go with that.

I started watching Community with the boy last night finally. Two eps in and it is cute, snarky fun, not to mention another opportunity to ogle Joel McHale. I can't get over how old Chevy Chase is. My mental picture of him is from Christmas Vacation, what the hell happened? Oh, yeah, 20 years, right. I'm still a little O_o about that, honestly, that it's been almost two decades since a whole lot of random pop culture and music I remember loving/watching/listening to. And then I remember I was a kid 20 years ago. And then the whole "20 years ago" thing hits me and my brain just kinda melts a little around the edges. I'm not sure how/when I got old enough to say "20 years ago" and have that refer to an actual period of sentience in my life. What. Just bring me the Geritol and Dentugrip now.


Today is Stan's birthday. Also today is when Dad gets out of rehab and goes home with Ruth thereby to terrorize her for a couple months while we all finish tending to The House. Looks like phone calls will make up a significant portion of my day.

I've been all thinky this week. Some good. A lot bad, honestly. Mostly neutral. And deeply thankful for the handful of things in my life that are going very very right and keep me going through the rest of it. One of which is STILL ignoring his alarm clock and snoring behind me, lol. I should go kiss him before he lumbers out of bed.

As I dragged my still sore carcass out of bed for the second time this morning (I was briefly up at 5am having myself a merry little crohn's attack) it occurred to me that maybe the way to stay sane is just to remain constantly nigh unto soul crushingly busy. This week has just been go go go from the second I got here and between the hoofing it around the city, work, and various bits of family errandry I haven't really had the time or energy to mope, feel sorry for myself, or generally feel like a useless lump of crazy - it's just DO ALL THE THINGS from the second I wake up until I pitch into bed wiped out. This is also to a certain extent true of kid weekends, since they need constant running around after and crisis management. Again, no time to really get lost up in my own head.

Now granted I can only sustain this kind of pace for so long - I fully expect that I will spend the vast majority of the five hour trip home on the bus dead asleep, not to mention much of Friday and Saturday. But it's something to think about in terms of taking a lesson learned down here and trying to figure out how to apply it up there. The first thing is to figure out how to motivate myself to just keep going with all the things that need doing at home, cause here most of my to-do list is other people generated and I tend to do a lot better with staying on task if the impetus comes from something outside of myself. So there's that.

Anyway, I kinda slept late this morning so I have to do some super extra hustling this morning. Later, nerds. Keep Kidzilla's dragons from dying while I'm off, k?

Another day of living (hopefully not dying) at the whim of the almighty to-do list. Not complaining too too hard as I actually managed to get a lot done yesterday. Granted a lot of that was pique at not being able to do the laundry until [livejournal.com profile] cell23 came home, owing to card location fail. But even ragecleaning aside, it was a good focus day. Having a partially clean house is good. :)

Geist last night was quite enjoyable. I'm getting a handle on the game now, but also I love [livejournal.com profile] verbena76's group and our tendency to wander off into cracked NC17 banter mid-scene - was kinda mad I didn't have my ipod with me so I could note down all the quotable shit flying around. Good times, hopefully no more Tuesday night blizzards will keep us from convening for a while.

Lily Lithanua* continues to settle in. She has definitely gotten much less skittish and much more, well, I have no other word for the combination of cute, fluffy, sharp, playful, dickish and the disregard for hoo-mon schedules, possessions, dinner etiquette and lap space other than "cat-like." I've been told by [livejournal.com profile] cell23 that she likes to sit down on my hip and go to sleep in the middle of the night, since I tend to be a side sleeper. She actually demonstrated this last night when I was laying down on the couch before Geist yesterday, and it is cute as all hell. So far not a big lap cat, though she will briefly jump up and accept pettins before popping off to explore something else. I like having her around; makes the house seem a little less empty without the kiddos and and the Manbeast during the day. Also I get bonus entertainment when he comes home because he will play with her for like 45 minutes on end and it's hilarious.

Well. Off to conquer my day. Bells later, whoo!

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! ~~ Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

* yeah we don't know either, Kidzilla pulled that one out of her butt the other day. As predicted, it doesn't matter; we've defaulted to calling her "dickbutt."

*insert crabby whining about [livejournal.com profile] cell23's flight home being cancelled due to snowstorm*

I know I know, it's fine, I'd rather have him safe in DC than trying to travel in this mess, and he'll be home tomorrow, but still, ugh, *WHINE* my house is too damn quiet without him, even with music/news radio on.

There, okay I'm done now, stop throwing up.


In other news, I bounced out of bed at 8:30, worked pretty much all day, handled a crisis, and conducted more interesting experiments in Asian cuisine. (ETA: I apparently make a pretty damn good egg drop soup.) Also got the kitchen cleaned up finally. I'm apparently doing something right this week. And apparently bell rehearsal is still on, which I'm mostly yay about except for the venturing out in the cold part, which I'm not a fan of doing right now.

LOVE ME MY DEVOTED MINIONS:

My Valentinr - kjpepper
Get your own valentinr

NOW LOVE KIDZILLA'S DRAGONS:

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

OMG, if you read and loved Madeleine L'Engle as a kid, you need to go watch "A Wrinkle In Time In 90 Seconds" RIGHT THE HELL NOW so I'm not the only one expiring from laughter over here. These kids NAILED it.

In other news, I am trying to get myself together to head for New York. I almost feel like I'm heading down unprepared because I don't have a hip flask in my possession. :P Also I know I say my online presence is gonna be iffy and then it never actually is, but yeah, standard warnings apply.

look after mine and Kidzilla's dragons while I'm gone? Also Squirekids, try to keep [livejournal.com profile] cell23 out of trouble. Or at least get him into entertaining trouble and tell me all about it when I get back?

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! !! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.
