Yesterday, my sister went to Forks with her boyfriend. It's a four hour drive and her plan was to spend last night at his place and come home this morning. So, I thought to myself, "Self? Why should Kyle and Jack and I just sit at home and be braindead all day? We, too, should have a shiny adventure!"

SO! We, too, drove off... just in a different direction. :D



And we ended up in Leavenworth!



BUT OUR DAY OF FUN DIDN'T END THERE! )


... and then I'll tell you all how last night I met Christian Kane and Steve Carlson. :)


Today, as most of you know, would have been my mother's 62nd birthday. We celebrated by driving out to Ocean Shores. This was quite the adventure. It shouldn't have been. LOL

First, I sent Kyle to school, then had to go get him. Then, Cher forgot to drop off rent, so we had to go back and do that. Then we had to go to my bank, then we got lost in Olympia. Then we took three different exits looking for a grocery store and not one of them HAD one. The next exit - one I didn't take? A TOP food and drug, right there.

So, I see a sign with a SAFEWAY logo? I take the exit and end up in the middle of nowhere. Yeah, Cher was swearing it like 'The Hills Have Eyes' and that we'd see a shack with "SAFWAEY" painted on it and that we were all going to die. So, we finally see this Safeway, I cut across traffic to get into the parking lot and end up grounding my poor car on the divider. *SIGH*

Finally, we get to Ocean Shores. :D

AND THE BIRDS ATTACK )
Needless to say, the drive home was much, MUCH shorter. :) And everyone slept but me.
1. Reply to this post if you want me to tell you how cool you are!

2. Watch my journal over the next few days for a post just about you and why you rock my socks.

3. Post these instructions in your journal and give your friends a much needed dose of love and adoration... but only if you want to. :D
It's really kind of sad that I measure my fall in terms like this:

School starts! Halloween! NaNo! Thanksgiving! Christmas! New Years! :D

And I'm so giddy excited for all of it and it starts somewhere after my birthday, which is in July. So it goes: Kyle's birthday, my birthday, Cher's birthday (at the end of July) and then in August, we start getting ready for school and then that. So, really? My July statement that it's almost Christmas time is completely and totally legit.

Add to that that this year I'm not utterly sick and doing the chemo/radiation schedule (CAN I GET A HOLLA!) and I feel really good about it.

So, here we go. I've already got an idea going for NaNo this year and I head over the [NaNo] site, and they have the new web badges up!



I've chosen mine (and the icon to go with), and I'm totally in the mood. Less than a month to go, technically. November 1, babies. :) I'm so excited.

WHO ALL IS PLAYING ALONG THIS YEAR? And who is going to cheerlead? And who wants to play but NEEDS cheerleaders?
When we role play, we tend to pick up a variety of characters. They could be ones that we like, ones that we want to experiment with, or ones that we just end up making from scratch. Eventually, we come to associate with (some of) them in one way or another. Out of all the characters (past or present) I RP, pick out the one I am most like and tell me why you think so.

And if you need a list, it's [HERE] -- or, you know... anyone else I've every played. Ever.


These two? My favorite. I'm just saying.

*sniffles* They can be my new Jack & Irina... I guess.

I love them.
Yeah, pretty much what I knew about myself.

For someone I know hates gushing, I'm sorry, but Tosh?

I really do love you for all that you've done for me and I'm sorry that you've been dragged down, trashed on and under-appreciated.

You've always been there for me, so thank you.

Even though some Americans may mistakenly think that Muslims only know recipes for Molotov cocktails; here are some other societal contributions of Muslims to modern civilization:

For example, it was Muslims who invented algebra.

Most people would also probably be surprised to learn that it was a Muslim who designed the Sears Tower in my sweet home of Chicago.

Even more surprising is the fact that 4 out of 57 Muslim nations on earth have already elected female heads-of-state; something that we as Americans have been unable to do thus far in history.

Additionally, the greatest American boxer ever, Muhammad Ali; and the funniest dude in America, Dave Chappelle, are both Muslims.

Most importantly, 3 out of the last 5 Nobel Peace Prize winners have been Muslims; one for fighting poverty in Bangladesh, one for disarming nuclear weapons and Shrin Ebadi, the Iranian Muslim human rights lawyer valiantly fighting for the rights of women worldwide.

But more important than Nobel Peace Prizes, Muslim culture has brought crunchy falafel, henna tattoos and yummy hummus to our American shores.

But all because of one terrorist cave-dweller, 1400 years of Pan-Islamic cultural and societal progress goes down the drain.

Thanks a lot, Osama…

    Ta-Da!

    Let me put it this way: while there is hardly any slash in the actual text of the script, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker’s chemistry is so massive that their characters even eyefuck when they cannot see each other.

    And yeah, it's pretty great.
    SAM: I called her number and got an animal hospital.


    (I hit the floor. TOO FUNNY.)


    Anne Hathaway @ the 2009 Academy Awards

    Then? THEN?! She sang and she danced with Hugh Jackman during his opening number. Proof?



    Gorgeous. Utterly gorgeous.
