Okay, I'm done with that. But still. Wow. My friend Rae is helping me with wedding planning, and for those of you who remember Devan and how ranty I was about her last year... well, I actually took the time to get to know her, and she's really nice. And she's bringing jewelry for me to wear to the wedding, which is super nice of her. She's going to be my bridesmaid, and I think it was a good choice. What's really funny is that both her and Ruthie asked if they could wear black. Rae freaked. I honestly don't care, though. Rae's got a more traditional view of weddings.



Next week is Princess Camp! I get to be Snow White. I hope I can get pictures. That will be fun. I've been helping Beth Ann get everything together at work, and I've enjoyed it. On Friday, we get to decorate! :D

I should probably get off my bum and go shower. I have no idea what I'm wearing today. There is very little clean laundry. I am very close to throwing on the piano dress and dealing with the strange looks.
purpleparadox: (omg love!)
Today's song lyric title is brought to you by We Love Katamari - that's the only English line in the whole song. XD

Babysat yesterday. It went alright. Wish there weren't so many mosquitos out in the woods, I would have liked to go exploring with Tyler more. Ah well. Today looks like it's going to be nasty, so I think we'll have to have some adventures in the house. (Unless I get a call that he's going to daycare, then that's all moot.)

Pomsitting tonight! Jacob's going to help Bryan and I out. After puppies, Amanda's picking me up so we can hang out- we haven't seen each other in a few weeks, and I miss her.


Not like there's going to be any huge celebrations or anything, but still, my birthday is always exciting to me. I survived another year! I have made it to level 28! THERE'S NO STOPPING ME NOW.

(haha, I think I've had too much coffee)

I've just been so energyless this week. The only thing that's keeping me going is copious amounts of coffee. Mmm, coffee.

At least I have a break before Web Development tonight, hopefully. (Knowing my luck, Brenda won't get home until closer to five, and I'll only have an hour and a half until class to just sit and be mindless) I have so much stuff that needs doing around the apartment, but the past few mornings I've been downright braindead. I haven't really wanted to do much of anything. The living room is a wreck, the kitchen is a wreck, there's a giant nasty dirty fish tank in the middle of my bathroom... yeah. I need a day to sleep in, take a nap, and just relax. Part of me is really hoping Brenda will call in a few minutes saying "oh, there's an opening at daycare for the afternoon! we don't need you today!" Oh, that'd be lovely. It'd be hell on my paycheck, but I've just been so dead lately.

In other news, I'm going to do some reading up on Buddhism. I've always been fascinated by different religions, and deep down inside there's a part of me that hopes I find one that fits me someday. I bought two books on Buddhism off Amazon as an early birthday present to myself (9 days until my birthday! O_o), and hopefully I'll find them interesting.

*zones out for a few moments, then snaps back to attention* Oh geez. I need more coffee. I think I'll finish this entry up before I start gibbering nonsensically.
purpleparadox: (Coffee-head)
Seriously, it's SNOWING outside right now. The weight of the snow collapsed my tent. And is putting a damper on my plans to take Tyler outside for an "expedition". Gaaar. I hate you, Mother Nature. It's too close to my birthday for it to snow!

Yesterday was spent alternately cleaning a fish tank and organizing the living room. I had the day off from babysitting (thank god), so I managed to make a little dent in the mess. Tonight I've got class, though, and I'm pretty sure that when 7 pm rolls around I'm just going to hurry back home, set myself in front of the computer, and mutter about how nasty the weather is.

Oh, I'm jumping on the bandwagon a day late here, but Three Weeks For Dreamwidth! Going to post every day for three weeks, because I love Dreamwidth. I may buy a Dreamwidth coffee mug. I love coffee. I need to drink more coffee. It's too early in the morning.

Hello everyone! :D

I'm down on Long Island with Bryan and his family. I hadn't been here in a year, and it's nice to see that not much has changed. The dog remembered me (and didn't eat me!), and everything's good.

We went shopping yesterday and today. Yesterday I went a little crazy and bought all sorts of pretty things - I got a new pair of shoes, two pairs of socks (one with an argyle print and hearts on it, the other with a coffee cup print), an Alice doll from the Disney store (she's so soft and cuddly), a Tinkerbell metal water bottle, some hair bows, and a new wallet. Today I bought some underwear (how exciting) and Bryan repaid some of his debt to me by buying me this OMG AMAZING Keurig Mini one cup coffee maker. I've been wanting one for ages, and now I have one, and it matches our mixer, haha. (It's a pretty red color.) We're going to be awash in K-Cups when we get home - they had a special deal where if you register your coffee maker online and bought two large boxes of K-Cups, you can get two boxes free. So I took advantage of that. We're going to have a million of the little things shortly after we get back from Long Island. I don't think I'm going to buy any more coffee makers ever again, haha.

I think I might be becoming slightly obsessive-compulsive about things. Weird stuff. I mean, I've always been a little weird about my security blankets, like how I hate it when people sit on them and have to tell them to get off my blanket, or if they fall in a dusty hole and get gross I have to wash them, or when I get really iffy about people touching my stuff. (I am very territorial, to the point where it irritates me if someone starts going through my stuff without my permission. Somehow, Bryan hasn't aroused that irritation yet - I think he understands about me being territorial and is nice like that.) Now, I have a new weirdness! Apparently when I eat candy or pretzel rods or anything like that which isn't pre-packaged and pre-proportioned, I have to eat an even number of said item. I don't know why. I don't care what the serving size is. I have to eat an even number. I get iffy if I don't. So what if the serving size for pretzel rods is 7? I will only take and eat six.

Anyhow, Brentwood is nice. It's very nice to get out of the north country. There's actually stuff to do here! :D

Bryan has his head resting on my knee. He's watching me type. OMG WATCHING ME TYPE.

I SEE WHAT YOU DO THERE [personal profile] nomnomchuupie.

(yeah, I'm a little silly tonight)

Also, the wedding date? May need to be changed. Cue me trying not to rip my hair out. AAAGH.
purpleparadox: (so tired)
Ugh. I hate being a girl. I feel so sluggish right now, despite the fact that I've had about three cups of coffee. I'm eating all sorts of crap food that I'm going to have to work off later (yay for the elliptical machine), and all I want to do is sleep.

In other news, I have a babysitting job on Friday night! It's for two little boys, 8 and 10 years old, who love to play video games. My DS will finally get some use! I figure I'll bring the DS over, maybe the Wii, and my Super Mario Bros. Super Show DVDs, and the three of us will have fun for four hours. I can definitely use the extra money - it's going into my "pay for the wedding" fund. I hope the kids like me, this way I can babysit for them more and maybe earn more money. If that does happen, any babysitting money will go in the fund, just like any money I'm making off my punch embroidery and scarfs is going into the fund. (If anyone wants to take a peek at my punch embroidery, go to http://www.purpleparadox.net and look at the gallery.)

I have my induction ceremony for Omicron Delta Kappa tonight. I'm excited, it's the first honor society I've ever been in. (Next week I'm getting inducted into Omicron-Psi, but I have to miss that ceremony, because I'll be at Madrid-Waddington Elementary, doing my pre-student teaching stuff.) I hope I'll be awake enough for it. I'm going to go work out after Kiddy Lit, and then go home and make myself pretty. I have another awards ceremony I'm supposed to be at tonight, for Teacher Opportunity Corps, but I can't make it to that because of the ODK ceremony. Diana, the director for TOC, tried to make me go to hers for 15 minutes (the TOC reception starts at 6:15, and the ODK ceremony starts at 6:30), but I'm not going to push it and end up late to my own induction ceremony. Bryan is going to go to the TOC thing for a little bit, and hopefully Diana will give him whatever award I'm getting. There is way too much stuff going on in April, I swear.

And holy shit, my birthday's in two weeks and a day. 27 years old, here I come. :D
