on the plus side... i've lost like 10 lbs in the last few weeks. that is good... cept i think it came from all the stress and being sick and not having time to eat... which is bad. :-/
on the plus side, at least i got my hair cut this afternoon, rather than waiting until after class, otherwise i wouldn't have gotten done otherwise. i'll post in the next couple of days of what it looked like b4, and then what it looks like now (it's above my chin). lol. FINALLY i got around to chopping it off. it's not as short as i would like, but i have like 2 1/2 months to let it grow b4 the fall bellydancing show, at even if i keep it at this length, i can at least add extensions or something if i want to.
i'm going to go lay down for a bit now, sitting up makes my back hurt terribly.
other than that, i just wanted to say that everyone is who following the LJ crap that is going on (again), i'm over at Greatest Journal and Insane Journal, same screen name. right now i only have story stuff and rec lists posted, and i'll just see where to go from there if it comes to anything really bad with LJ. either way, i will still keep my LJ, but i will be very sad to see a lot of the fandom go, because in the end, i'm not sure how many will transfer to another journal. so yeah... that's the scoop on that for now.
hopefully i will have a chance to update again, sooner rather than later, once i start to feel a bit better. this week has been rough, especially since i wasn't able to take any of it off work.
i am not gonna post any spoilers or anything, but i'm can finally talk about it now.
okay... i lied about the spoilers... well... they are only small ones.
so yeah... that's what i did today. i'm surprised i could concentrate, because i'm sooo friggen excited to see the movie! it's pouring down rain here right now, lightning, thunder, and all, so i'm hoping that the line isn't soo incredibly long tonight when i get there that i have to wait outside. that would blow. we had to do that for PoTC3 and it wasn't fun.
okay... time for a nap.
OMG... only a few days until HP OoTP movie! I'm sooo excited! Of course, Josh will be out of town for training, so guess who I get to go with? My sister... but oh... just not my sister. 3 of her friends too! So basically it's like me... the 22 year old chaperone, with 4 high schoolers. Gah. At least they are all Harry Potter fans, and most of them have read the books, which is more than I can say for Josh. He doesn't ready ANYTHING.
click on the link and it will take you to youtube to watch it!
up, up and away!
i won't object if you let me know what you think of it too. lol.
other than that... i REALLY have about a million phone calls i need to return and people i need to talk to, but i have really felt kinda off this last week cause of the meds for my finger, and it hasn't helped that it's been crazy busy cause josh started the new job this week, so he's out of town, and will be for most of the next month except weekends. so it's kinda lonely around the house too. i've been reading a lot of books, and once i finish my current one, i need to finish rereading the last 3rd of HP OoTP so i can make sure i'm up on the facts (for the nitpicking of the movie). lol. and Raven... i owe you a very long phone call soon, and i hope to god that we get a chance to chat b4 you go back home for the wedding and stuff. and i still owe you a bday present, lol. though i found something new i might be getting you, rather than my original idea... so we'll see :-)
i think the thing that worries me most is that i was using insecticide right b4 this happened (i washed my hands in between), but that stuff doesn't come off u'r skin easily... and now watch, it prolly got into the wound.
so much for my day being good. this has pretty much ruined my mood, not to mention anything i do with my hands.
also... this took me forever to type!
Welcome to the 2007 edition of getting to know your friends. What you are supposed to do with this is change all the answers so they apply to you, and then paste it into the comments thread or your own LJ entry.
The theory is that you will learn a lot of little things about your friends,
if you did not know them already.

at least it's better than 50%!!! i think though if i had answered the 'owning guns' question yes, then my chances would prolly be much higher. unfortunately, the only guns i have at this house are my airsoft ones. hehehe.
In the fall of 2006, Jason Isaacs, who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, said that he has read fan fiction about his character; he said he gets "a huge kick out of the more far-out stuff."
that just made me 'omg' sooo loudly, and now i'm laughing my ass off. i hope to god what he read includes slash, cause that would just make my day! makes me wonder how many other of the actors have REALLY read fanfic.
As for stuff in RL... I've been really busy. I feel like on my days off, I don't really have any time to relax. We have been practicing like crazy for the next bellydancing show that is coming up, plus trying to do a ton of stuff around the house, and work in everything else in between. Accomplishments for the day: holes dug for posts for fencing in yard, posts put into holes for fencing in the yard, gate put up, half (it's a HUGE tree that's split into two parts) of a tree cut down - which that half still takes up like a 3rd of our back yard when it was downed, and a couple of other things. Though I didn't really help with any of that stuff. MY accomplishments for the day: cleaned some more in the house, took test shots (pics and vids) in the woods across the street for some scenes in my sister's movie we are shooting, finished laundry, got some more designs for the tshirt designs figured out today for my sister's movie, practiced bellydancing, read a couple of HP stories that I've been meaning to for a while, and made sun tea (hahah... and that takes like... 30 seconds of effort). So eventful overall, but not so much on my part I guess. Well.. kinda eventful. More like 'lazy getting stuff done' but that's okay.
Still lots to do this week yet though.. like finish the fence, finish staining/putting up moulding, go to my bookclub meeting (HAHA... I didn't even know my mum was in one, but I guess a bunch of the girls we bellydance with are in it too, so she convinced me to come, since I love reading and all - too bad I can't be like 'YAY GAY HP FANFIC!'), taking my sister to go try out a camera she wants to buy for her movie, a small half hour show for bellydancing on Friday (not the big one we are practicing for) and then off to my friend's bday party, and I think another thing or two to do this weekend, but I just can't remember what. Plus work. I HATE feeling so busy, but at the same time, I've felt really bored lately when I haven't had something to do. I think it's just cause it's that time of the year when there is no winter stuff to do, but no summer stuff either. It is technically hot enough here to go swimming (upper 80's), but all the pools are still too cold, and it's been raining a ton too. Plus when it's too hot the heat kinda gets to me. I HATE being hot cause I sweat when it's like 70 degrees out, yet the electric bills are too friggen high around here (there's a huge ordeal going on with the companies), so we can't pull out the window units yet. I will just have to suffer, unfortunately.
About the only other interesting thing that has happened in the last couple of weeks was the fact that I met Josh's bro a couple days ago... and he's extremely HOT (I feel bad saying that.. cause it's my fiance's bro... and he's married too), and I topless bartended a couple weekends ago for a friend's bachelor party he threw for his buddy.
Oh yes... and saw Pirates 3. I'm still undecided about the movie. There were a ton of things I loved, but then some I didn't love so much too. I think I will need to see it again before I make a final decision. I mean... the action and special effects were great and all, but some of the other stuff that bothered me has kinda held my opinion at bay for the moment.
I'm done babbling now... I think.
i'm not gonna bother with regular posts, mostly because they are pointless and there is nothing bad in them. i HATE to flock stuff, but i would rather do that than have anything else happen.
i wish there was a way that i could search for entries only *I* made in certain comms, so i could delete them. i was able to do that for the more recent ones, but i don't remember exactly when i posted stuff way back when, and that makes me a bit nervous. at least i don't post often to comms.
this sucks. i HATE this sort of thing. and here i was, just a couple of weeks ago, talking about how LJ is so great for fandom. i want to throttle these people.
if anyone reads my LJ that wants to be able to get into the story related posts, just friend me and let me know on here. that way i can friend you back.
while i'm at it... i'm gonna post the HP video my sister made... because she did such an awesome job and it's like perfectly together with the music. it was only her 2nd video she ever made too! well.. 3rd... the first time she made it it disappeared from her computer, so she remade it. lol. but it only took her about an hour the first time... she's great at doing stuff like this! hence why i keep telling her to go to school for something with movies.

True Neutral "Pure Neutral"
Some neutral [people] commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They are of the true neutral alignment as described in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
A true neutral [person] sees good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. He advocates the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run.
Some true neutral [people] actively support balance in the world, and seek to avoid having any one side, law or chaos, good or evil, become too powerful over them or anyone else, and will work against whichever side is the most powerful. They tend to side with the underdog in any situation, and are often opportunistic in their actions.
True neutral is committed to the avoidance of extremes, and is non-judgemental.
Side-Note from Xan81:
Due to your Neutrality, I would really, really LOVE your feedback. Not that I don't want feedback from members of the other alignments, but a True Neutral's feeback is typically NOT emotionally, morally, politically, or socially charged. Please send me an email! I have it set to automatically email me when someone gets this score, so I know who you are ;) True Neutrals are the classic, "I just don't give a shit" alignment, and I fully understand if you don't feel that you have any responsability or obligation to sending an email/comment. Even if you did, I'm sure you'd have some difficulty in deciding what to comment about. But, I guess that depends on your tendencies :D
