I want to go camping.  I'm not sure where this sudden urge has come from, but I'm having to fight the urge to go out and buy all the stuff I will need.  A sleeping bag for one, and tent for another, lol. 

I haven't gone camping, really camping, since I was a kid with my family.  Of course I did the Army version, with just two canvas cloths and stakes and stuff and enough room to curl up and stay only mildly damp in the rain while the person sharing the tent snored loudly.  

What I want to do is go out in the middle of nowhere, or as close as I can get without being horribly lost, and just have time to myself. Set up a tent, start a small fire, read a book.  Cook dinner over the fire or have one of those fake MRE camping things.  

I know there are a lot of campgrounds about 2 hours away from where I live, so I would probably go there.  Forests, maybe by a small stream. 

Of course, I need to buy a tent and sleeping bag.  A lantern.  One of those little firestarters for the campire, some snacks for the trip.  I'll have my Kindle with me.  

I want to go just for a night, just a little time to get away.  

Yeah, that sounds like a plan.  Guess I'll have to get started on that, huh?

So... Apparently Amazon.com is down for the count today.  That kind of puts a crimp in my browsing experience, lol.

I suppose you could make this up, but why?  Ninjas save a medical student!  It's like fanfic come to life!

Dreamed I was an explorer on an alien world, a desert that had lobster lizards with teeth.  It's going to be that kind of day.

[livejournal.com profile] copperbadge has some of the best wording ever, and this one, I think, says everything! 
piplover: (OMG!)
My brother and his fiance came back around 430 and invited me to stay for hamburgers.  Since they didn't have the stuff to make them at the house, fiance and I were supposed to go to the store to pick it up.  Well...She just bought a new car.  I mean, they've only had it a week.  It had 25 miles on it when she drove it out of the showroom.  Yeah.  She backed it up into my car.  

The totally ironic thing about all this?  The car has a rear camera, so that when backing up a little screen shows up in the rear-view mirror that shows the person what is behind them. 

My car's driver side bumper is pretty much crunched, and it makes a horrible grinding noise whenever I go over a bump or turn the wheel too hard.  On the other hand, I'm really not worried, because I know the insurance is going to take care of everything.  

Her car, which like I said is brand spanking new, has a scratch on the back.  And a lot of silver paint now, lol.  She felt awful and kept apologizing, even after I assured her I wasn't mad or upset.  Shit happens.  My brother and I were even laughing about it as he was taping my headlight back on.  Like I said, I know it will be fixed, probably better than it was, so I'm not worried.  

And the hamburgers were great. 

Anyway, my only concern is that she's totally stressed about it, and that I'm starting my job this Friday and need a car.  Other than that, well, isn't there a saying that goes something like, "May your life be interesting?"  

Today?  Was very interesting.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. I will definitely not be giving you any hints.
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well.

So, I make no promises that you'll get a work of art, but it will be hand made.  Come on, who's brave enough?

I just spent nearly 5 hours playing a stupid game on the Merlin website! I never play computer games! Did I do the last of my homework? No. Did I do laundry? Actually, yes, but it's now in a pile on my bed waiting to be folded. I did cook dinner, in between racing back to the computer to play some more. I can't believe I wasted almost a whole night playing! But OMG, it's so addictive, even if I can't beat the last level! I spent the last four hours just trying to win, and so close, but not there! Aghh!
Somebody, stop me!

Was talking with a friend and we got started, somehow, on that game where you take your first pet's name and the name of the street you grew up on and come out with your porn star name.  Apparently, I'm.. wait for it.... THUMPER NEWCOMER.

If you would be so kind, ask me the seven questions below. Just copy and paste them into a comment, replace the blanks with anything you want--personal, silly, surreal (e.g. 3. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), or deep--and I'll answer honestly as I can! Then post this in your own LJ and see what kind of things people want to ask you!

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favorite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

7. Who would you most like to ____________?
piplover: (Fear)
Just for my benefit, otherwise I'll totally forget half of these:

Pay deposit for apartment
Talk to utilities
Talk to bank about deferring car payment for this month
Take books back to library
Fill out collision report at police station
Write three page report for presentation tomorrow
Write article review for class tomorrow
Study for test tomorrow
Buy essential groceries
Do laundry

Ok, I think that's all.  If it's not, oh, well, I think that's enough for one day.  Have a good day, Flist!

"REVEILLE" on Google Video
Salute to Veterans

Just becuase. Not sure how well the video will play, and probably not dial up friendly. But I figured, what the hell. If any of you watch, enjoy.

Hmmm. Wonder what it will be?
piplover: (hope)
I really do. I am just mad I never realized what an amazing singer, what an amazing person, he was, before he died. I bought two cds yesterday, and was listening to one of them today. His song, Committed to Parkview with Willy Nelson was just amazing. It hit me in a spot I hadn't realized was still sore.
I know a lot of poeple keep saying that his songs touched them, that he spoke to them, and I guess I just have to join them. I never, ever thought I would say that about a country singer, but I guess the older I get, the more I open my eyes.
Anyway, for anyone out there who hasn't listend to Johnny Cash before, you should give him a try. Even if you don't like country, I'm sure you'll find something you'll like. That man was amazing.

If there is someone on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not ) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.
