+ I shall lead with the last because we are GOING TO GREEN DAY on August 8th!! I came late to Green Day because they alway seemed so much like the band I was supposed to like. All punk-y and intense and whatnot. When D finally got me to listen to their American Idiot album I was converted. I think Billy Joe Armstrong has a painting somewhere, for real. How many men that age can pull off eyeliner and not look like a total git?

+ My back is fucking killing me. I'm pretty sure it's because I spent yesterday laying in bed because my legs and feet were fucking killing me due to some soiree at the library everybody had to help get ready for Saturday night. I was a the end of a seven day work stretch and I don't think my body appreciated spending two more hours on my feet running between three floors getting Wiis ready so the rich and intellectual would give the library money.

+ Which leads to the partyfail since I was supposed to go to my friend K's grad party and just could not manage to get upright enough to do so. It's like my body QUIT and refused to entertain the thought of primping, driving, and small talk. I have not flaked on a get together I've committed to in a long time.

Writing, Fic, Fandom

+ I have decided I am going to sign up for this:



And if you write any RPF you should, too! It's multi-fandom and slash, femmeslash and het and gen friendly, so what more could you ask?

I'm still not sure of the pairing. Might be EmTay, or I've been toying with Stephene/Johnny because that video of them practicing, man, it has eated my brain. I caught myself looking for Stephane interviews and knew I was in trouble.

I have decided, for real now, that I'd rather write something that sucks than write nothing that doesn't even have the opportunity to suck.

So, go! Sign up! Figure skating, sports, football, celebrity, it's all good!

+ More Marshall! I am all n_n because there's so much of him all at once and it can never be enough! Here he is on Jonathan Ross.

He looks amazing, a bit more relaxed than on Jimmy Kimmel. I can't get over how fit he looks, how much I love his dark hair with the brilliant blue of his eyes, a striking combination, and how he seems to have just grown into himself in some fundamental way.

Many gracias to queeniegalore for the link!

Books

+ Have begun reading the latest Charlaine Harris Dead and Gone and I'm liking it so far. The reviews have been kind of mixed but it still reads like good, clean vamp fun to me.

+ Am also reading the YA novel The Fold by An Na, and I really like it so far. Great frenetic teen voice from a teen of color who just wants the guy of her dreams to give her the time of day. Strong social commentary on Asian identity and the pros and cons of surgically adding a fold to the eye to appear more Western. Did anyone know Jackie Chan did this? I didn't know that.

+ Have the YA book Cycler by Lauren Mclaughlin on the burner to read next. Hermaphroditic teen and the angst that goes with that. That's one I haven't read before...

Misc.

+ I have had that Korean pop song from The Stephane/Johnny Video That Ate My Brain in my head forever so here is a link: hxxp://www.sendspace.com/file/ul7t8p (change to ts) so you too can SHARE IN MY EARWORM!

+ Just in case you need more enticement I give you the YouTube of this infectious ditty because these kids are some of the gayest things that ever gayed and they are PRECIOUS.


Okay, gente. My job is done.

I need to go get ready to read to mommies and babies!

Take care and I'll talk at ya'll later!

I have all these little fires to put out at work and I have almost two days to go before a day off but THIS makes things so much better. :-D


How beautiful is that?

Just a warning: the Korean pop song will burrow in your mind and make a home there; worst earworm EVER, but BOYS!!!!! *HEARTS THEM!!!*

I meant to post yesterday but did not so this is catch up from the weekend. Bullet points, yes? Yes.

+ First and foremost, Feliz Cinco de Mayoto everyone! I have linked to a brief explanation of this commemorative day in Mexican history, for your Mexican History 101 lesson. Now everyone go have a Margarita in celebration! :-D

+ This weekend there were movies and teevee. I saw some. :-)

We all saw Wolverine and I liked it. )

+ Then there was the kickass amazingness that was Dollhouse. )

And also The Number One Ladies Detective Agency )

+ I am tripping right along on all the new material from Marshall! 3 a.m. is, well, twisted. But it's Marshall, what do you want? The hook sounds a lot like the bootleg '4 in the morning,' which I loved, but I could be making that up. VMA's on May 31st and I can't wait.
:-D

+ We have a pet teenager. Russell's uncles moved to that mecca of metropolitan savoire faire Beaumont, TX and Russell will graduate in three weeks and no one saw the sense in transferring him at this point. He has his own room, along with a whole crapload of our stuff, and he is SUCH a good boy, really. He is exceedingly neat and tidy, respectful, smart and funny, and really does not seem to mind hanging out with two middle-aged lesbians.

We think we'll keep him. :-)

+ Summer has arrived with a vengeance and my new hair is now a nimbus of frizz. *sigh* I am gong to spend all day trying not to be stuffy, I can feel it. I did not miss you, verano, not one bit. *sticks out tongue*

+ I am waiting in antici.........PATION for [community profile] bandombigbang!!! I was going to sign up as an artist then totally chickened out. I seem to have lost all my courage in the fandom arena, so sad. However, I do have BIG plans for next year! (So easy to say as we are still in this year. :- I have been re-reading [personal profile] arsenicjade's Wednesday Night Boys and Home is a Name and the sheer quality and easy lyricism of her writing just blows me the fuck away. So wonderful.

+ Apparently two of my favorite figure skaters decided to make my dreams come true. )

D is still in McAllen and I'm beginning to think I'm never getting her back. )

Which means I am alone on Bunny Day.

My friend Renee asked if I wanted to go to her family's for Easter, and that was very sweet, but I seem to be in a more intense hermit stage. If that is possible.

I've been watching LOGO and actually writing on the copfic (WRITING WRITING OMG) and catching up on some work from work because I just canNOT seem to meet a deadline to save my life these days.

Yesterday I woke up wanting pancakes, which I actually had the ingredients for, so I whipped some up, and they looked so pretty and I had my sugar-free syrup and I sat to have them with much pleasure.

And they tasted salty and WRONG and I was all 'EW'! Because I had a recipe from the 'Net and, really, it's pancakes. How hard is that? I glanced at the kitchen wondering how much salt I had added and....there sat an egg, whole and intact.

Classic. *lol*

This morning I'd vowed to try again but eggs were easier. Perhaps for dinner.

I'm pretty ok with futzing around here with Sweet Pea at my feet (the longer D is away the more clingy she gets). I have been watching Figure Skating Worlds and SPOILERS )

So I am writing, surfing the 'Net, watching TV, and snacking. What else is there? :-)

My life, how so exciting. *lol*

I hope those who celebrate have a great Easter and I'll talk ya later.

+++SPOILERS FOR MEN'S US FIGURE SKATING NATIONALS AND POSSIBLY PROFANITY. Consider yourself warned++++ )

And, dudes. Did anyone see that interview with whatserface where they were side by side and didn't even look at each other? Meep.

I am not getting over this anytime soon. And probably not even then.

But I am really REALLY annoyed at D right now because she ate my cookies. No, for real! We SPECFICALLY bought two boxes of Pepperidge Farm cookies (which we aren't supposed to eat anyhow, but they are kind of expensive and I only eat a couple at at time to make them last) because she has gotten to where she will just inhale any sweets at all and won't leave me any. As long as I can have a taste I feel better but she will devour EVERYTHING. Hence, two separate boxes.

This morning I woke up to her munching on her cookies in bed and thought 'Yay! I forgot I have cookies!' because I had only eaten, like, four out of the box...and there are two left. So she ATE MINE BEFORE HERS and, ok, I know this reads really funny, and I will laugh later, but SHE HAD HER OWN COOKIES!!!

You can dick around with many things but NOT my fucking cookies.

Yeah, yeah, ya'll can laugh now.

So. How's your day?

I just woke up which is ridiculous and I never do, but I was pretty beat yesterday. )

In other news..

* I found out late Friday that I had left my memory stick in telephone reference when I plugged it in to find a Harris County Library for a patron; I made up a list according to zip code that I keep on there. Of course the latest version of Embers 28 is on there. HOWEVER! My favorite Cuban has it in his posession and will return it Monday, but still. Made of fail. *sigh* I could always work on the Copfic, which has the latest version on my desktop. It's an option.

* I know there is skating going on and I've been a teeny bit spoiled but I am still so excited that it is on today at 4 YAY!!! I do have Icenetworks but I also prefer a bigger, more detailed Johnny. I'm so excited for him!

* I just finished reading The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen, one of my favorite mystery authors. Her protagonists are always female and strong and the writing is good, skillful and intelligent.

Next I am going to try to read 'The Ordinary' by Jim Grimsley, one of my favorite gay authors. I usually don't read SciFi but I loved the other SciFi book of his I read, so I'm giving it a go.

* Might do a meme later, too. There is a book one going around that sounds interesting.

OK, gente.

It is still damp here, but the temp should be going up a bit today. We have spent way WAY too much lately, and I have co-worker M's b-day pub event to go to later (DON'T WANT TO WANT TO WATCH SKATING but I suppose we can DVR it. *grumble*) so until then I think we'll be staying in. Maybe shampoo the rug.

Oh, yes, you all envy me! I can FEEL your covetousness. :-D

Cuidense, gente, and I'll talk at you later.

p.s. I've had this song from the seventies 'Spending the Night Together' in my head for DAYS OMG GET IT OUT!!!
ahestele: (Default)
Because they are so handy, yeah? I promise to return to a more literary format soon. No, really.

OF THE GOOD

* After looking and looking and LOOKING for decent furniture D got frustrated and went to...The Salvation Army. Bought a beautiful cherrywood dresser, an all wood enterainment Center with glass doors, the kind where the TV just sits on top, and a corner table, all beautiful. Our deal is that she could pick the furniture if I did the decor in the bedroom/living room. It works for me.

* Yummy food box from Angel Food Ministries.

* Went to see RENT! It was awesome. I love that musical

* Have begun making holiday cards yay! I actually like D's design more than mine. I am making another one. It is such fun.

* Have YOU left me your snailmail address? Yes YOU! Don't make me hunt you down...

* Kid Rock's Rock and Roll Jesus. It is AWESOME. Yeah, he's an aging hell raising manwhore with a penchant for blonds and weed. Who's perfect? He is also a guy that loves his kid, respects his momma, and knows his music history. He has really embraced his love of Southern Rock and Roll and classic country in this along with the hip hop influences. I love this CD.

* [livejournal.com profile] arsenicjade's MCR prison!AU. I am going to rec her until the whole world knows of her amazingness.

* Heroes tonight yay!!!

* SKATING SKATING SKATING!!! Belated Cup of China squee and spoilers!!!!  )


OF THE BAD

* All my pants are tight. :-(

* I am still behind on work. :-(

* I have not even BEGUN my xmas shopping. Why do I do this every year?

* I need to cut my hair. It is starting to resemble Cousin It's

I know there was more but I must away!

Ya'll take care and I'll talk at ya tomorrow!

Hola all.

Just had three days off so I have the day-off hangover which consists of being bleary eyed from waking up at eleven for too many days and not sleepnig last night. Ah, well.

D and I tried to buy a car on Friday. )

In other news....

Watched Skate Canada! I know all you Europe folk have seen but my boy was BEAUTIFUL, oh god. ********88SPOILERS************** )

I also made YUMMY Italian Wedding soup which was easy and SO GOOD.

I overate all the rest of the time.

For the first time I flaked on an assigment reply post. *sigh* I am SO not into this semester.

My apartment looks like ground zero at Alamogordo. I am attempting to clean for my parents' visit. I bought plastic containers, garbage bags, and hangers. It looks worse. *cries*

The rest of the time towards my operation is barreling down at warp speed: One appt. this week, two next week, Thanksgiving, Guadalajara, Final Project due, parents, operation. I want to click my heels and disappear....

Oh, and we will be having Thanksgiving at my apartment because D's mom's house has no gas for cooking. You know. Just to make things more VIVID.

But! I have Italian wedding soup. The weather has turned brisk and wonderful from hot and muggy. And there was skating. And tonight is Heroes!!!!

It's the little things. :-)

Cuidense, gente.

Talk at ya'll later.
ahestele: (Default)
I almost called in today but 'still tired, still sleepy' just didn't sound like a good enough reason.

I was so tired last night I was in bed by eleven which is, like, a record for nocturnal night owl me. I'm pretty sure it has to do with the last shot I got. At least maybe?

Health shit. )

If I am feeling all fatigued and strange tomorrow I am just calling in. It's not like I do it all the time.

In other news...

Johnny Weir is pushing the boundaries of gender and causing people's heads to explode here: http://lannamichaels.livejournal.com/502448.html
I love my boy so much. Really. SO MUCH love.

And to those who beg to differ on the fine young man's sexuality I offer a ride down De Nile with Liza Minelli to discuss the robust masculinity of her two ex-husbands as well as two free tickets to Naked Boys Singing.

For real, man.

I just finished reading On Edge by Jon Jackson, and I think the USFA is going to have kittens and expire with this photospread.

I reccomend the book to anyone who wants an insiders perspective of figure skating competitions. It was recced by the wonderous and lovely [livejournal.com profile] reet someone on the Johnny Weir LJ and it really presented a stunningly skewed picture of that world. I will never look at a figure skating competions the same way again.

It also showed me what kind of chutzpah doing a photo spread like this takes and I love my skaterboy all the more for it.

You represent, baby.

So, yes. The purpose of this post was my female malais and Johnny Weir in girl clothes.

My fascination knows no bounds. *lol*

Take care, gente, and I'll talk at ya'll later.

P.S.: Why do I have the refrain from that Shakira song 'Hips Don't Lie' in my head? Why, lord, why? *stabbity*
