Care from Jeremy S. / Dream about underwear

High-scoring word of the day so far:

FOOLS (249 points) - against Pat K. [4W, 5W, hook off BEMOAN and CWM to make BO / EL / CWMS]

Jeremy S. left me a caring comment on Myspace, which is good. Hadn't heard from him in a while, actually! He's such a sweetie!

Had a weird dream which involved Eric T. choosing things from a room full of clothes on racks for a gig. I told him that I hoped nobody actually used the underwear that I saw, which primarily seemed to be from American Eagle. He said that they did, and then had to get out of there since his truck had arrived on the grey concrete sidewalk outside the store. I went to the big party room which was attached to the store, and then fielded a few missed calls from Andrea on a cellphone.

Some guys with dirty blonde hair were in the room, and found it gross when some girls started changing in front of them. Then Uncle Daniel's office blitzed the place with "appointment reminder" slips for dental care. Some of us knew that we'd missed our appointments, but didn't care. Trudi Fraser (supposedly my sister's old piano teacher - really Trudy Morse) and her colleagues complained about the waste of paper, and we said that there was nothing we could do about it. No idea WHAT triggered the dream!

You Are 56% Ready to Be a Parent

You are mostly ready to be a parent, though you could be better prepared.

If you had a kid tomorrow, things might be difficult at first - but you could pull through.

You don't have to be an ideal parent, but if your life was in better order, it would help.

Make yourself a plan of how you'll raise and pay for a kid. You'll feel better if you have all your ducks in a row.

If you're already a parent, you're probably doing a good job.

Even if things aren't perfect, you're making the best of it.

At least I have a better idea of how to be a parent than SOMEONE else does...

You Are Somewhat Approachable

You are a fairly friendly person, and you're definitely not scaring people away.

You do tend to have your guard up when it comes to strangers, and rightfully so.

How approachable you are depends on who is trying to approach you.

You're friendly to people who seem harmless and nice. But you also know how to give creepy people the cold shoulder!

That is definitely correct! I was TOO friendly to a certain person, though. Yikes... my synapses were misfiring BIG-TIME on that one!

What Your Cupcake Says About You

At parties, you tend to be a lot of fun. You make everyone just a little bit happier.

You hardly have any restraint. You only hold yourself back when absolutely necessary.

The most important thing in your life is fun.

You are dominant, vain, and a bit of a showoff. To know you is to worship you.

Hmm... maybe... ;)

Found my apartment keys in my laundry!

High-scoring word of the night so far:

FAXING (340 points) - against Colin W. [5W, 4W]

Eric picked me up a bit earlier than usual, and I said that it would take an hour to get where we were going. In that hour, we covered WORLD OF WARCRAFT monsters / orcs / dwarves / blood elves / NAME THAT TUNE / deleting people / competitiveness / Santa Hat craziness / mesmerizing the babies with my jeweled shirt / program outlines which I didn't really read / sanity vs. insanity / other random stuff. The weather was REALLY WINDY AND RAINY, so Jeremy definitely didn't make it out! Raymond did, so we talked briefly about meetings and running back and forth: make sure the time and date is correct!

Dylan, Calla, Vanessa, Grace, Christon, Elizabeth, Vivian, and others also made it out. We talked about Johnny's being where the plane crashed (environmental impact of oil spillage, anyone?), Martin's Europe trip, HAIRSPRAY, Dylan's recent California trip, ranting (NOT raving!), anger, popcorn, crackers, and more. I updated Vivian and Cindy on things like my breakup and Jon's proposing to Harmony - Grace can't believe that he'll get married! Vivian can't believe HOW he proposed, while Cindy is definitely on my side! Calla was regaling the other side of the kitchen (FOOD) with an elaborate proposal story, while Auntie Ying offered us some tuxedo cake. Eric, Cindy, and I discussed REQUIEM FOR A DREAM, drug hallucinations, her shellfish allergy getting worse, Epi-Pens, VERY NOISY fridges, engines, etc. We have the use of the house next week, which is sweet. Covered interesting accents, MEGA MAN, forgiveness, deserving things, gas prices, STAR TREK, Maisie, 24, Homestar Runner, games, and more on the way home with Eric - it'll take some time, if ever!

Got home to find out that Tim M. / Matthew D. / Michael K. / Steve R. had added me for the blood games, and that Naomi E. had deleted me. Oh well. At least I deleted approximately 450 people earlier! (I tried explaining that to Eric on the way over, too... why add them if you're going to delete them? The friends list was getting VERY unwieldy!) Decided to do some laundry, too... saw Jesse the Cute Biker Guy, as well. (K told me that his name was Bob, but I always called him Jesse in my head, so there you go. He's stuck with that moniker!) In doing so, I found my original set of apartment keys - PHEW! Reminds me, I need someone to help me put the spare set on a keychain since they broke off the HAPPY FACE one. Sunday it is!

Mishearing of the night... there were several instances of "creative hearing," but this one stands out. :P

Eric: Poulet a la king?!
Me: ... what?! Killing the king?! (I heard tuer, which is "to kill" in French)
Eric: *makes the CRAZY sign by his ear*
Me: *pretends to slap him*

Friday Five on feelings / Blue red sky dragon


1. What made you happy this week? Completing all the Blood Games, finally.
2. What made you sad? Relationship memories.
3. What made you angry? See above.
4. What are you looking forward to in the next week? Jon's birthday extravaganza at Jeremy's on Sunday, and meeting Erik for coffee sometime.
5. What are you not looking forward to? Deciding whom to cut, and paying the phone bill with its reconnection fee.

People are STILL adding me for the Blood Games, like Andy R. / Jennifer C. just did. Oh well. :P

Here's a dragon that Candy found while going through her files. She thought I should have it, which is pretty sweet!

I've just gained a lot of time!

Hey, Kaitlin O. added me to Facebook - sweet! I think the Blood Games are taking up too much of my time, heh. Like I don't already spend enough time on there... *rolleyes* Speaking of which, Cathy B. / Simon D. / Raymond M. added me for those too. I left a few "add me!" groups just now, as well. While I'm doing that, I'll unfriend a LOT of people that I just added for those games! Maybe I'll finally finish fully tagging all my Blogger posts, too. (discussing stuff with Chris W. - maybe borderline personality disorder IS something that I don't have to deal with anymore!)

Had a bantering conversation with my brother last night about Curry (his nickname for Colorado Corey to distinguish from my ex), Eric, Ron, laptops, favorites, sarcasm, humor, Fellowship, disconnected feelings, not bringing anything for Sunday's extravaganza, and more. Then I had a good conversation with Karen in which I read her stuff I'd written people, and she reaffirmed the love my true friends had for me. I knew that I have it despite certain things, haha. I knew I didn't want to marry this person since financial responsibility was not really paramount, for one thing. Now I'm talking to Corey about PVC pipe and scientific experiments... nice!

LJ downtime tomorrow / Dream of Zoe in warm muffs

I love the song I'm listening to now... R.E.M.'s What's The Frequency, Kenneth?

LiveJournal is going to be moving servers from San Francisco to Montana tomorrow, and as such there will be at least 4 hours of complete and total downtime starting at 8 AM.

I'm already hating the Christmas commercials, and it'll be at least another five weeks of them! The Christmas displays at the mall aren't quite as irritating, though! Had a weird dream where a bunch of friends and I were searching for Zoe on Facebook - her display picture featured her wearing very warm winter fur muffs, and she was apparently in multiple networks. (including Trevelyan) We discovered that she had nieces and nephews older than she was, and we all had an "EWWW!" reaction to that. Then we were kept busy shooing Korey AWAY by means of a QUEST FIGHT screen - we were very successful!

Triggers: too much questing (if my sister is reading this: NOT THAT KIND!), way too much Facebook searching, and thoughts of keeping warm! Yikes. Ah well... I like random conversations or messages (as the case may be!) with the Phil-ster. Hahaha, I love my true caring golden friends. I think Zoe is a bit too young to be officially on Facebook, anyhow... though that may change in a couple of years! Lester T. / Josh P. / Joey B. / Amanda M. / Michael C. / Kiky W. added me for the blood games, too. I now have 115 friends online at Facebook - something that other people will NEVER get! Gamer people count for MUCH of this number, believe me!

Drug Simulations / Marijuana, dressers, and more!

Thanks, Corey... not that it did too much for me since the sound is different on Youtube, and you apparently have to lie down under a blanket in the dark and not think of anything much! (that, or use headphones) No, I am not condoning recreational drug use. :P

Lucid Dreaming
Divonorum (a stimulant)

This computer restarted just now, too! At least I'm talking to Eric and Corey right now - always good times. Learning about Howard Hughes as well... yay for interesting conversation tangents!

Be impressed by the chili chocolate bar... it's MINE!

Eric picked me up at his stated time, and then we had a random ride to church. That's what I like, and he knows it! Went to the auditorium - it's SO NICE! Jeremy, Raymond, and I shared amusement - we'd better not be like the Israelites wandering around for forty years as if we're a church plant having to set up / take down equipment every week! Although those of us who grew up at the old church are kinda spoiled, too! Discussed Scrabble, the gym, laziness, words, Fellowship, dinner (Randal wasn't there?!), work busyness, RSVP, funny comments on Facebook, and more. Showed Ivan, Cordia, Sam, Emily, Joey, and Jessica my HUGE stash of candy - Jessica seemed impressed by the chili chocolate Lindt bar, heh.

Finally saw Chung and Karen's baby boy Mattias (SO CUTE!), and learned that Lily and Lee had named their son Gavin - NOT Robert, to Eric's mock disappointment. Stood around later and discussed "man dates" with Dylan, Christon, Calla, Stanford, Raymond, Eric, Jeremy, and others. Grace, Connie, and I compared Van Tech to our own high schools - it's NICER! Vanessa, Danielle, Eric, and I looked for Lesley, Lily, Lee, and Christon's photos up on the graduating class photos... Lee did like Lily in Grade 10, haha. Said hi to Tony and Sonny before I left, and joked about Eric T. giving money to my dad. Got Fox's Book of Martyrs on loan from Dad... it's more the morbid aspect than the piety, but that's why I'm twisted. :D Had an equally random car ride home: Spanish, gas stations, hate, taking over the world, MSN, CD-ROMs, the civic election yesterday, no Grey Cup for BC, etc.

Got home to discover that Fiona M., Merja R., Chris R., Martin B., Kostas S., Ricardo M., Rafael E., Philippe G., Tamar F., Antonio K., Leopold C., Eric M., Tien C., Vincent C., Erick P., Felipeh L., Romel O., Irwin C., Robert J., Bryan T., Matthew S., Seong H., Cyrus C., Lisa H., Jay Z. [NOT the musician!], Qi L., Ian R., Steve S., Naama R., Michael L., KM L., Lauri G., Neil H., Kath M., Hong Wei C., Jett G., Laura B., DJ B., Janet L., Missy J., Jean-Claude D., Sheilah G., Shmulik B., Carlos M., and Wilson P. had all added me for the blood games! I've had to restart the computer at least three times since I got home, because the Internet browser refuses to work after a certain period of time. Unplugging the modem and then plugging it back in doesn't seem to produce the desired results... sigh!

Edit at 5: Lesley called me to see if I knew when Pastor John's birthday was - nope! If she wants to be all sneaky ninja-like, she can ask his family, haha. At least the computer seems to be more stable now - PHEW!
