crazy mixed up randomnessssssssssssss!!!!


I feel FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC!

I've been dancy-dancy-dancy all day today and I really have no idea why but YAY and *rocks out to Róisín Murphy* Yesterday I sent out PRESENTS yay! I'm in the moooood to create, but everything seems too sedate! (oops rhyme!) *bounce bounce bounce* I discovered the most delicious sandwich today! Sprouted rye bread with turkey and havarti cheese and dill slices and dijon! it sounds like too many different strong tastes but thanks to my weird mood I tried it for breakfast (I don't have time associations for food) and was then like OMG YUM and had it for lunch too. hee hee!

OMG WHY AM I SO EXCITED???

but srsly, I've been thinking a LOT the past week about this upcoming year and I'm a teeny bit apprehensive because I'm like, how can it POSSIBLY be any more incredible than the past year? which means it would be less incredible -- but then, how likely is that? I mean, I know like 3457230572509725 times as much as I did last year and I have 234723587 more incredible friends and my love life is like 324097245072570 better than before because 1) closer to Nim and 2) AURILION, duh! Tryin' to figure out what I even want for this year... want to make goals (not resolutions!) and make thanks-in-advance!

Today is the full moon ♥

p.s. Callie is totally me, btw. *giggles* nothing is cuter (and hotter) than Callie flustered with being flirted with! am loving this storyline.

p.p.s. Lie To Me is FASCINATING.

p.p.p.s. bookmooch is fuckinawesome. (thanks for the accidental introduction Kat!)

p.p.p.p.s. Tell me what you're currently reading / listening to / creating!

Haha! It's SO GOOD to see you so happy!!! I love it.

I'm writing children's books currently, hah. Or practice ones. Some day I hope to publish. I'm reading... something... yes. "Multiculturalism and the Mouse - Race and Sex in Disney Entertainment" annnnnd I am about to start one of my Terry Brooks books! I listen to whatever, nothing new lately.

YAYYYY!

How sunshine-bright you are today :D Is tonight the perigee moon? Perhaps it's livening you particularly.

I'm currently reading Silk by Caitlin R. Kiernan, found it in the Oxfam bookshop on my last day at work in the city centre. Started well, not sure what I think of it now. Also browsing Java websites and databases books, preparing (poorly) for my exams this coming week.

I'm going to send a book or two your way soon: I saw a book ('Meetings with Remarkable Trees') that said you while bookshopping just before Christmas, and was pleased to see it on your Amazon wishlist! Also have a Tanith Lee book (Reigning Cats and Dogs) that you wishlisted. Hopefully you have neither -- thought I should check before posting them.

And I'm creating nothing, which is sort of a source of unending angst.

Yay for good moods. :-) I'd be a bit more upbeat myself, but today's been a snowballing of bad luck (topped off with a visit from the monthly red menace), so I'm feeling a bit sedate.

Lessee....yesterday I finished The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison, and am holding off on starting anything new yet (my semester starts in a few days, and I want to see what the assigned reading is before I get into anything I won't have time to finish). I'm finishing the scarf for a set I've been working on for my mom. And I've been listening to a stready stream of Disney music because I relented and let my daughter watch a couple of movies today since I'm feeling so utterly unable to chase her all over the house.

omg, I LOVE that set, so cute!

~hugs and grins at your bounciness~ Ya, moon. And ya, life. :)

reading: Stephen Erikson's Malazan Books of The fallen. I'm on The Bonehunters..

listening to: happy bouncy Jason Mraz, to balance out all the war in the books, and a metric ton of Crosby Stills Nash & Young.

Creating: A mess of my boy's room with him. Hypothetically we're cleaning, but that remains to be seen. Otherwise, I've got more books to bind and I'm contemplating taking up a digital painting. Would you happen to be in the mood to shoot a little stock? (~she mused hopefully~)
belenen ══╣intrigued╠══
ohhh, not right now but I would LOVE to shoot some stock for you at some point! It's gotta get warmer though, I just can't motivate for photos when the weather is so crappy.

What sort of stock?? *curious*

I freakin' heart Roisin Murphy.

Also, I am currently reading a book that doesn't need to be mentioned here because it's medical stuff and actually rather boring. :D Oh well, it's not MINE persay so it's okay to be bored by it.

Not listening to anything, sadly.

Working on a scarf for a friend and some gifts for others and then I have to get started on a necklace for a friend's wedding. She has specific requests and I've got a lot of work to do to make this work out. :D
belenen ══╣curious╠══
you gonna post photos of the creations? :D

Except for the dill slices (I've never liked pickles) your sandwich does sound yummy! I love havarti cheese - it's actually really quite mild, IMO - lovely and milky.

I'm currently reading a book called "Adventures of the Artificial Woman" (a novel) by Thomas Berger. It's much better than it sounds, trust me!
belenen ══╣teasing╠══
not liking pickles = SACRILEGE! ;-)

Wow, that's so awesome to hear that you're in a wonderful mood! I'm in quite a magical/treefae/overwhelmingly positive and empowering time myself, so YAY for that!

Currently I'm not actively reading anything - just finished The Awakening Heart, and I read a page recently in Birth Angels: Fulfilling Your Life Purpose with the 72 Angels of The Kabbalah (Tree of Life) that -really- resonated with me. It just occurred to me that there might be an angel calling out your name from it too! Though I think I'd rather say it over the phone.

Currently listening to The Ring, by Mythos, and it has the most wonderful energy, as I'm sure you're aware!

Creating? Well, I'm making dinner for my family tomorrow night.. And I'm creating something else too, prosperity and my relationship with trees. So much is unfolding right now for me!

eeee! ♥ oh I love this comment :-)

eee so bright and exclamationmark-y you are! <3

my favourite oddly delicious sandwhich is toasted raisin-walnut bread with tuna, cheddar, a touch of celery & something obscurely spicy. it's like every taste ever, combined! :D

and i'm currently listening to felicia day (from dr. horrible) discuss creating her own webseries. & trying to make oldschool sepia photos :)

totally offtopic? you and aurilion were in a dream last night! everything was acid-bright and intense, but warm- we were in this coffeeshop hangout where a bunch of people came to make music together and work on their own crafts/ spiritual ideas. it was rad, like the internet came to life =)
belenen ══╣adoring╠══
hee hee hee! :D

omfg, I'm horrified and fascinated! I think I could try a BITE of your weird sandwich but I dunno if I could finish it. o.0

ooooooohhhh!!! what an AMAZING dream! I'm happy we were included! ;-)

LOVE LOVE LOVING CALLIE RIGHT NOW. God she's beautiful.

I currently just finished one of my favorite books from my childhood, John Bellairs' Spell of the Sorcerer's Skull. I found a copy with the original Edward Gorey illustrations and I was so happy!

I'm listening to a CD I borrowed from a friend, Cheb Mami's Dellali, and also Barack Obama's The Audacity of Hope on audiobook, both in the car.

I'm working on several commissions right now- one for another picture of Offred from The Handmaid's Tale, one of Anna Karenina, one of someone's original character and a FEW personal drawings of my WoW main.

I NO RITE??? don't you just hope ze and Sadie get together?

I'm currently reading (again!) Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. It's a fantastic book filled with very idiosyncratic--yet somehow believable and lovable--characters.

Matt and I went and saw Jason Webley in Portland tonight, and he was pretty fantastic. Not sure if he'd be your style, but it might be worthwhile to check him out anyway! (I think, from what I've heard of his, his album Only Just Beginning might work best for you. I'm also a big fan of the song "Captain, Where Are We Going Now?" He's a very kind, humble soul, too; I felt very... loved, calm, and comfortable in his presence.)

*dances with you* :D
belenen ══╣curious╠══
mm, I'm checking Jason Webley out right now! ;-)
