It's snowing outside!  Yay!  It's so pretty, I can't tell you how excited I am!  I love snow!  I went outside and did something I've done since I was a little kid with every first snow. I just sat outside, under my upstairs neighbor's porch, and watched the snow fall, listening to the wind chimes.  It was so peaceful, honestly, it was just so very tranquil. 

And, in honor of the first snow, you all get a some pic spam!  And, because it's been so long, you get some kitties thrown into the mix!  Enjoy!

Hello, all!

Still alive, computer still on the fritz.  It's behaving itself somewhat for now, so I thought I would post a quick update to let you all know I'm still around and reading your journals.  I just can't comment very much since my computer has the unfortunate habit of freezing and dying if I breath too hard.  

Anyway, re-uploaded the op system a few days ago, and although it's still freezing on me and being a pain in the butt, it is, for now, working.  So, yay!  I'm hoping I can save up enough the next few paydays to get it fixed, but we'll see.  

Now, question for you!  It is Spring, and time to get my hair cut.  It hasn't been trimmed since September and I'm looking kind of shaggy.  I present to you two pics.  I'm really sorry for how big the pics turned out.  I look like a total dork, but I'm willing to suffer the humiliation for some advice.  If you have dial up, you may want to avoid looking under the cut. 

This is how I look now: ME! )

So, my question to all of you is, how short should I cut it?  Do I chop it again, or just trim it slightly?  I'm fine with either one, although it is kind of nice to  have a bit longer hair.  Any advice would be helpful.  I can't afford to get it cut for a few more weeks, but I'm kind of tired of feeling like a lion with a case of static cling.

Because I'm a dork, and because [livejournal.com profile] forcryinoutloud  wanted to know what they look like, here is my box set of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues.  Hey, I embrace my geekiness!

Hello, everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate.  I had a wonderful Christmas with my family, so different from last year, lol, and have spent a lot of time with my sister and brother.  I don't see them very much, so it was great to just sit and talk with them. 

Talking, however, was not the only thing we got up to.  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves, though I warn you now that they are quite probably very disturbing.  If you have a problem with snowman abuse, please to do not click.  No, seriously, these are not for the faint of heart.  I think my siblings and I quite possibly may need mental help.  I'll let you decide.  But, honesty, you've been warned!  Oh, and these are certainly not dial up friendly.
Disturbing snowmen ahead - proceed at own risk )

Also, I just wanted to thank everyone who sent me a Christmas card, it really meant a lot  Thank you!   [livejournal.com profile] shirebound , [livejournal.com profile] forcryinoutloud , [livejournal.com profile] mik100 ,

Hello, everyone!  Wow, it's been a while since I last posted.  University has finished for the summer, so I have a whole month free except for work, yay!  This is a good thing as I have become involved with putting together an event for Seven Straight Nights.  This is an event that takes place nationwide starting the week of September 14.  Seven nights of vigils around the nation where straight people show their support for the gay community by holding vigils.  I was put in charge of the event for my area, don't ask me how as I'm still scratching my head, so I have to organize the press releases and donations and all that fun stuff.  Eep! 

But I am looking forward to it, and hopefully I won't totally blow it.  Wish me luck! 

As to other news, well, not much going on.  I am currently looking for a job for when I graduate in December, putting my application out there and hoping someone will bite.  I'm getting a bit nervous now that the graduation date is getting so close.  Still no sign of a love life, but I figure that once I actually settle down a bit and get a more permanent job something might show up. 

And now, I spam you all!  Not dial-up friendly, sorry.  These are just some pictures of my apartment.  I rearranged the furniture yesterday and am rather proud of how it turned out.  Also, I baked a pie today, so I figured I would throw that in, too, as I am inordinately pleased with how well it turned out.  Enjoy!

And that's it.  Yeah, I know, my life is boring.  So what is everyone else been up to?

Went to bed last night with it freezing rain outside. Woke up this morning to this:

That first image is my poor little car, burried beneath the snow.  I guess it started snowing around 4:30 this morning and hasn't stopped.  Woohoo!  I hate the cold, but I love snow, and it's been YEARS since I've seen any like this.  I love it!

Hello, all. Today is such a lovely day I had to take some pictures to share with you. Probably not dial up friendly, sorry. It was 75F, with a slight breeze that carried the scent of a thousand blooming things. Absolutely lovely. Ok, onto the pics.

This is my mom's house from the front.

In honor of all the kitty fics I've been reading lately, here is some kitty spam of my own. The orange tabby is Rodney and the black one is Colonel. :) They actually lay like that a lot, without any posing from me. Aren't they just adorable? One would never know they came from the same litter.

OMG I met David Hewlett! *Deep breath*
The trip started off on somewhat shaky footing, since the friend I was hoping would go with me had to cancel, and then I couldn't get my sister or any other girl friends to go. So my friend Matt said he would go with me, only he has a huge crush on me and, well, the thought of sharing a hotel room with him was kind of creepy. But everything turned out all right. After a *7* hour trip we checked into the hotel only to find out that they had messed up my reservation, and that instead of a room with two beds they gave a room with one bed. Matt was a gentleman, though, and slept on the floor. Hey, I paid for the room, so I got the big bed, lol.
This morning we got up super early (hey, 8 is super early for me!) and were out of the hotel by 930. I found a parking spot right across from the theater, and boy, am I ever thankful for that!!!! As we were walking around the area, trying to kill three hours before the show, guess who walked right by us walking his dog? Yep, David Hewlett and his faince Jane. Matt wanted to stop them and ask for a picture, but I convinced him that would be impolite, so I settled for watching with longing as he walked on past. Two hours later found me in line waiting for the movie to start, talking to some friends! Here's a pic of them.

It was really nice to have someone to squee with, and when DH walked past us to enter the theater and waved at us we all kind of blushed and waved back, then started giggling like school girls. It was so embarrassing and at the same time so much fun!
The movie was wonderful!!! I haven't laughed that hard in so long, and when it comes out on DVD I highly, highly recommend getting it. It's called A Dog's Breakfast, and it is a good movie for the entire family. I loved it!
Now for the best part of the trip. After the movie a group of us stood around outside hoping to get a photo with DH, but he had told at the end of the Q&A that he had like, 10 pages of dialog to learn for this week, so he had to take off. So he walked out, waved to us again and said thanks for seeing the movie.
Well, I just so happened, by pure coincidence that I am thanking the Gods for, parked my car three cars from his. And as we both crossed the street, he mentioned that the movie case weighed a ton.
I told him I had enjoyed the movie very much and thought it was very funny. He asked if the two of us had come up for the Stargate Convention and we told him, no, we just drove up to see his movie. When he asked us where we were from and we told him, his eyes got really large and he almost yelled, "You drove seven hours just to see my movie?"
Matt, sensing weakness, lol, said, "Oh, yes, and it was so worth it!" And then very politely asked if DH would mind getting his picture taken with me, since we had driven so far. He said yes immediately, and not only did I get a picture with DH but with his faince, Jane, the other producer of the movie John Lennic, and the star of the movie, Mars, although I don't think you can see Mars in the picture, he was behind Jane.
Wow! Then we thanked them all very much and took off, and as we drove out of the parking lot and I'm trying not to have a panic attack while trying to figure out where to go next, I look over to my left and there is David Hewlett, waving to me as they turn.
It was wonderful!!! Here is the second picture, and if I look a bit dazed, well, I am! The person on DH's other side is my friend Matt.

Ok, here are some of the pictures I got while at the con. Don't want to kill anyone's computer, so I'm only putting 6 up. I have a few more I can add later if any of you want. Enjoy!

By the way, that last picture is a group shot of us with Douglas Aruthers, and he actually grabbed me and pulled me onto his lap when I went to go stand behind him, lol! He is the biggest sweetheart!
