more pics from friday night, depicting the people (and lj users) in my life:
first of all, naturally, you have me. an aubkabob. with an aubkablog to post in.
Laurie, nitelite, is a tall girl. this shows just about how tall, as i'm 5'7" and in giant clunky boots. granted, she's in giant clunky boots, too, but still.
Andrea, faetal, is my dearest local friend these days. our totally opposite personalities mesh so wonderfully well, i couldn't ask for a better fit for a friend. we spend each visit with each other making each other gaffaw until our faces and sides hurt. i would do anything for this girl. i'd love this picture so much, had it not turned out so blurry.
Daniel, stanieldaniel, is one of the biggest hearted people that i know. a truly beautiful soul. i love having him around, and love the positive changes i've seen in my brother since they've been together. yes, he is my brother's boyfriend.
Drew, dispossessed, is a fabulous guy. a computer nerd, he never hesitates to drop everything and race over to fix it. a superhero, indeed!
Mike and Pattie, no lj, sorry.... I worked with Pattie at officemax, she was my bestest work friend. she left for the army, and came back this holiday for one final visit before officially moving to texas. you can karaoke with us monday night, if you so please.
Joel, antialias, is quite possibly thee smartest person i have ever known. He is EXTREMELY quiet, unless he has a bit to drink. will talk for hours about quantum physics and the concept of zero, if given the chance. i love how happy he and andrea make each other.
Cara, scaraharem, isn't around much (at least, not at the functions i've been attending.) i've always felt that cara is a lot of what i would love to be, personality-wise. extremely outgoing. a party in herself. beautifully talented in photography, mandolining, and making up songing. i love this picture, because you can SO see the mischief lying beneath the quiet, beautiful exterior.
Greg, Gregory, raygunzero, also isn't around in my circle of friends as much anymore. he and his now tamed down bi-hawks is the coordinator of the yearly DaDa festival. I have spent many a day playing EverQuest with Carne, whom i also miss very much.
Jessie, my brother and best friend, brosely... well, i know i spout all the time about how much i love this kid. he's like the big brother i never had, at times. it makes me sad to know that almost no brothers and sisters share the bond that we do.
Ashlee, thrillkisser, is a new addition to the clan, as she's been hanging out with Drew a lot ;) she is adorable in every way, and a real sweetheart.
Brian and Kirby, tefen and icebox, showed up to the party fashionably late. I'm still convinced Brian is a long lost twin, though i would never tell him that. He's hilarious(er than me), lived in phoenix, worked a lot of the same establishments, hung with a lot of the same random lj'ers from not here. Kirby is beautiful, young, and has a sense of innocence that i find beyond endearing. i keep meaning to hang out with them more. new years, certainly!
that's all that was at the party that is in my 'semi everyday life'. or that i talk about occasionally.
Joe and I have been friends since age 14. Our friendship started with him having a crush on me, and me hiding from him on the bus. he now lives in Texas and is VERY successful in ANYTHING that he attempts. it was his magazine that i used to write for.
hee hee, i just wanted to plug in a picture of me with tons of HAIR. i sorta miss it.
hrm. i don't have a picture of my mother uploaded anywhere, apparently.
but here are my two dads. my biological father, and my step daddy (jessie's father). my parents divorced when i was 9 months old, and my mother remarried Ray when i was 2, having jessie when i was almost 6. My dad is still outside of Cedar Rapids, IA, my step daddy is in the Ozarks in missouri. both have been happily remarried for years and years and years.
Brandi, raisin, and i have known each other almost as long as we've been alive. we went through many trials and tribulations together as children, and i will always view her fondly as a big sister. i'm the one with the shawn cassidy guitar.
DJ, frobear comes around every so often, but not nearly as much as I would like. this pic was taken... almost four years ago? yes. He's on the left.
Bacci, no lj sorry..., is my demon cat that i LOVE SO FREAKING MUCH. i think she has worms, though. she's very bipolar, much like her facial marks shows. i think that's because we plucked her out of the wild and brought her into captivity. she's settled down much in the last six months, thank goodness.
Gwyn, jadisan, is hardly around, anymore. i miss her dry sarcastic remarks. she's the one squatting down in front of the wedding party (being a tall girl herself). every time i see this picture, my mind screams HUMMUS!, because my brother was chewing it right in my ear, and that's all i could smell.
my two new favorite additions to my friends circle, Ben and Larrissa, scrumbles and 0vary. Fantastically talented, he is, he is giving me a drive to create and perform music again, something i thought i would never get back. funnilarious in an endearing, awkward way, he fits in with our crew perfectly. my friends ADORE him. and also adore the HELL out of Larrissa, too. She has one of the best, beautiful, auras that i have seen in so very long. i feel almost frantic in my drive to hang out with her, to get as much Larrissa time as humanly possible. this is the pic you get, until we can pin them down for non DaDa ones.
Kyle, gaykyle, is a total sweetheart. he is always fabulous to work with and makes my work day that much more tolerable. he also always makes me feel cute. tee hee. i'd like to see him come out with us more (he's on the right).
maybe i'll post more, if i can find more pictures of people in my real life later, and stuff. but now i'm still in my pajammas, and everyone is walking out the door to go to mom's.
