drank a TON yesterday, so it's a wonder i never actually got DRUNK. i was sliiiiightly feeling things occasionally, but not enough to get stupid. which, i suppose is a good thing.
yesterday was a great ego day, the first good one i've had in... sheesh. dunno how long. but i felt beautiful. that's no small thing.
tried to get some sun on my pale blue legs, but only succeeded in a splotchy sunburn on my scalp. i am teh sex.
ate barbecued turkey, which i had never done.
hung out with secret_ninja for the first time in 2 years. twas good to see her. felt bad because i was in a quiet, introspective mood and didn't feel like gabbing much, just watching people... trees.... grass... sky... and thinking deeply.
day 4 of 4 days off, and i need to accomplish THE WORLD. let's see if it can get done.
in the meantime, i shall end this pointless post and drink more coffee. stomach linings are overrated, anyway.
so much for accomplishing anything, though i WILL have dyed my hair by the end of the evening. hoo, boy, are the grey hairs coming out in force! ... okay, there's like 8 of them.... (but we like to pretend they're not there... we don't like to discuss it..)
waiting for jess and daniel to come over so we can go snarf something. mmmm, foood. in something sort of related, karma is a real bitch, which is SO enjoyable sometimes. but i'm not gloating, because that could inflict more karma, but unto me, or so i believe. so i shall just say: careful of the bridges you burn, kiddies.
SO don't want to go to work tomorrow. doubt i'll accomplish too much today, because IT'S SO FUCKING HOT. wah. i want to sit here and suck water all day and have a silly stargateathon. but methinks i'm out of episodes. le sigh. or maybe a zimathon? i do happen to have the entire first season now. unfortunately, season 2 is unplayable for some reason, and that freaking xmas episode is still ever elusive.
uploaded more icons. 70 down, 30 to go...
i have spent a bit more time out in nature lately, it makes me almost actually want to *gasp* go camping. there's just something fantastic about woods + nighttime.
i so thought i had something else to say here. what did ya'll do yesterday?
i put a quarter in a record machine i thought i'd dedicate one to jolene but it was full of records i'd never seen now it's time to change, and it's all beyond me...
so here i sit, slathered in bloody goo instead of crawling into bed like i should SO be doing. well, dammit, i said i was going to at least dye my hair during my mini vacation, so I WILL DYE MY HAIR. this feria stuff, although it's for a burgundy color, literally looks like i slit a pig's throat and wiped it through my hair. it also has the adverse effect of causing my fingers to look like i slammed them in doors and that i have a husband that beat me, that i turned around and sliced into thin slices. i got the stuff EVERYWHERE. not everywhere in the bathroom, thank goodness, just all over MEEEE. it's all over my shoulders, down my shirt, on my wrists... even now, i feel like it's dripping down the back of my neck.
oh how i hate dying my hair. thank goodness my work shirt will cover most of the mishaps... iiiiii'll... just have to wear my hair down for a few days.
after half a lifetime of playing with hairdye, i finally FINALLY realized tonight that it's a good thing to put contacts in before you do the dye: it prevents my leaning on top of the sink with my face to the mirror so i can see what i'm doing. duh.
went to Denny's with Pie and Pants for an omelete... and what a 'licious omelet it was. left there with the idea that we would grab some ice cream and head to my place to watch some On Demand whilst i dye my hair, but we ended up cruising all over portland, instead.
i've realized lately that my most favoritest thing to do on EARTH is to drive around portland aimlessly, occasionally getting out to explore, all the whilst singing along to random songs and staring out the window. freaking orgasmic. i'm open for that kind of deal, anytime one wishes to do so, unkay? portland is so freaking beautiful, and it's all still so new to me. i feel like a tourist, though i still find the same amazing beauty in a bridge that i found 2 1/2 years ago.
so many years until today lost, but now you found the way an open mind can open eyes and now you're open to the pain sitting naked in the rain..
