I think it's time to update this; most people I friend these days have a clue why, lol; I'm not as shy with comments anymore, so, yeah.

The biggest things to keep in mind about me )
anyway, if you ever decide to de-friend me, there's never any hard feelings. As long as I can still read your fics, lol!

I've been toying with the idea of doing that for a few months now. However, I can't come up with 101 goals, and 1,001 days is a *long* time, I knwo myself. I'd give up partway through, and be all disappointed in myself. So I decided to modify it by cutting it in half!

I am, starting on August 19th, starting a '50 Goals in 500 days' project! If I start on that date, it will end on 01/01/11, so that was the date I decided on; it'll be easy to remember that way!

So, here's my list, lol:

cut to save your flists! )

I have it saved in Googledocs, but I want to put it here, too; if I put it in enough places, I will remember to stick to it, right? I hope?

In other news, I am trying to be good and not spoil anything about Hot Mess, because since I preordered it, I got it yesterday, so I'm being even quieter then normal on twitter, lol.

In other kinds of news, I am making curtains for the kitchen and back bedroom! For the kitchen, it's pretty gold fabric with paler striped sections that have dark grey pinstripes, and occasional roses...not really my style, lol, but it goes with the wallpaper and yellow painted cabinets nicely, and is better then mis-matched ones(currently, one with tiny, multicolored teacups, and one with blue roses...yeah)

for the back bedroom, a slightly darker gold with a pretty vine and leaf pattern, over stripes and rectangles...it's hard to describe! Again, not quite my style, but the ones I had made(mint green and black panels, mint/black/mint, in each window) shrank too much to use, lol: they are now about 2 inches too short and an inch or two too narrow, since they got dried in the dryer which is a very *good* dryer and gets *very* hot!

In pony news, I have a *very gorgeous Mexican Bluebelle on it's way, and I think I found someone to do the Warning Mark custom; she can take a vague idea and come up with some really interesting ponies, so I'll be curious to see what I end up with, lol! I still have yet to receive the Car Crash Hearts one, the customiser had some rl issues interfere, and then she couldn't get the neck brace to cooperate!

Warning, there is a mini rant on what is probably an unpopular opinion under the cut.

I don't even know anymore, I'm pretty disappointed! )

is gone. :( I was hoping that since Ryan & Jon were the only 2 who ever used it, that they'd get to keep it, and keep using it. :(

thing the first: I got an actual book today! and already finished it, lol. 594 pages, YA sci-fi/fantasy, Pendragon book 10: The Soldiers of Halla

quick, non-spoilery review: very good, it's been about a year since I read book 9, but I didn't have any problems following the plot, lol. It kept my attention the whole way through, as you can tell by the fact it only took me about 4 hours to read, lol! I plan on digging out the rest, and re-reading the whole series from start to finish next, cause(sort of spoilery, I guess?) this was the last one.

thing the middle: New Perspective. I think I must have The Divorce on my brain, cause while everyone else is seeing a love song, I'm seeing a post break up song about wishing things had worked out differently, but knowing when it's time to go seperate ways? Not like angsty, oh, this is a horrible thing to have happened, but...wishful, regretful, fond memories, kinda Summer of Like-ish, almost? Like, that the Divorce was unavoidable, but that doesn't mean they won't miss each other.
especially this part:
You come along because I love your face
and I'll admire your expensive taste
And who cares divine intervention
I wanna be praised from a new perspective
But leaving now would be a good idea
So catch me up on getting out of here

More to the point, I need to show
How much I can come and go
Other plans fell through
And put a heavy load on you
I know there's no more that need be said
When I'm inching through your bed
Take a look around instead and watch me go

That just really reminds me of Bang the Doldrums, even thought they are *completely* different!

thing the last: the !: it is not on the cover for the album, but *is* on the website? boys, can you make up your minds???

are we all watching this? tenth on itunes last night, and overnight, Good Girls Go Bad has moved up to SIXTH.  OVERNIGHT. god, now I really really really want to go to the Holliwood show, lol, but I can't. There Is No Way...

*edit* and back to 7th...

well, the Grandma move went far more smoothly then we had any reason to think it would, and I'm very relived...

On the other hand, I feel like CRAP, cause I have something that should have been mailed out on like, June 25th or 26th, but I was sick, then we had to move grandma, and now I'm not going to get it mailed till at least Tuesday. It's staying here in Cali, too, so I'm *sure* the person it should be going to is looking for it. I emailed them to let them know, and to apologise for the delay, but haven't heard back yet. :/

Oh, and let me tell you all about the *insane* offer I got for some of my ponies while in Vegas; $3,000 for my Bluebelle army, can you believe it!? They are NOT worth that at all, not by any stretch! The offer was actually made to Austin, I was sick for half the con, and Austin ordered me to stay in bed, then went down and watched my table for me on Sunday. <3 He told her no, cause my Bluebelles are special, and not for sale. You have NO idea how glad I am that I didn't have to make *that* decision!
The money would be nice, *man* would it be nice, but well, I *know* I would have regretted taking it. I can't replace my army; I own 9 of the known factory error Bluebelles and there's somewhere around 20 to 30 existing? Oddly, as rare as they are, they only go for $120, max, on auction. Of my 9, I've paid $80 for one, and traded about a $70-80 pony for another. The other 7, well, one was free, one was $2.00, the rest were somewhere around $20 each.

Heh, look out, too; ponies are addicting. Austin just signed up for the mlparena tonight; he fell in love with the customs at the fair, and now wants to commision a whole set based off the classic Nintendo games: Mario, Luigi, and Link, from Zelda, for starters...

Also, how long ago was Bob's twitter deleted, guys? how did I miss this happening? I heard about Dixie getting killed, of course, but I missed that he deleted his twitter?

Today, Grandma is moving. She doesn't know this yet. )

In other news, Singer apparently wants us to get on with slashing Bryan with Marshall, the sooner the better, I guess? And am I the only one creeped out by all the slash talk in the replies to the picture? I'm like, ok, yeah, I *know* what those kind of pics lead us to think, but DON'T TELL *HIM* THAT!!!

the pic in question, if you haven't seen it... )


and of course, my personal opinion on the Johnson/fbr_t/twitter situation )

I am finally getting over this horrible sinus infection from HELL. It was bad enough that the dr. took me off work last week, till this Monday, so my pay check for these 2 weeks is going to be pathetic, between my trip to Vegas, and then being sick a week! Even though I used my vacation time, this check is going to be 25 to 30 hours short from normal. :( that is gonna suck, lol, of course, I want to go see Cobra in Hollywood with most of Cali bandom fans, but who knows if I can afford it or not, plus, taking the grayhound will only get me about 3 miles from west Hollywood at the closest, lol, so I have to look at some more maps before I decide! But, I have already missed Hey Monday's tour, *and* the Cab's tour, this summer, so...

Anyone want to do a road trip? I don't drive, but I'm willing to help pay for gas, or whatever I need to, if anyone is headed that way from Fresno or farther north? Greyhound is gonna be $60, so I'd chip in that much at *least*, if you'll save me from the bus!

*shrugs* this may or may not make sense later. I dunno. It's 2:40 AM as I type this, so, who knows, lol? I think I should be going to bed soon: I need to be up at 8 AM, and it will probably be a very stressful, emotional, 23+ hour day for me: up all day moving grandma, reasoning with her, etc., then work tomorrow night from 4:30 PM to 1 AM, so, if I'm lucky, I'll be in bed by this time tomorrow, lol.
