Hey y'all.
Time for another move.
I've grown weary of this journal and moved.
New name is tank_dog.
I'll be re-friending (most) everyone.
Just thought I'd let it be known.
I'm tired of this name, this style, these colors, and even my userpix.

dead like me

I know I said I'd put up pictures of Ren Fest shows, but I just had an awful day and really need the sleep and I just don't have the patience for it. If I'm not dead on my feet by the time I get home tomorrow I'll be sure to put them up, but other than that don't hold your breath.

I had to work with the ex-teacher who treats me like a kid in her class. I hate it. She acts as though every idea I have is wrong, but it's ok because I'm younger and therefore dumber. She talks to EVERYONE like they are retarded, deaf, blind, and/or dumb. This continues to anger me. High Schoolers are not first graders, and they haven't been for some time. I also hate that she gets to be the head assistant all the time. It's like somehow she's better than me. I know I bitch all the time about not wanting the responsibility, but ... ya know ... *shrugs* I did get to work with the woman I ran into at Ren Fest though... she's awesome. Out of the majority of my co-workers she's the one I most aspire to be like. She's an awesome renaissance loving biker babe. So cool.

I'm still at a loss about the Scorpio, but in the end (no matter what really) I think I always will be.


SavvyPanda on DA has started something called the rainbow project and I have signed up for the color GREEN. Unfortunately I'm not well versed in unusual animals. So, if anyone could suggest some wild, crazy, rare critters that would be so awesome. I would prefer something fuzzy, non-primate... most likely something hooved... But I'm completely open to suggestions.

Went to Ren Fest today. Have been listening to a lot of Yellowcard lately, some of their stuff actually reminds me of Weezer. Go figure. Will most likely post pictures of a couple of the shows I went to and some of the stuff I bought tomorrow after work. Seeing as I have to be up for work in about 4 or 5 hours.
Thankfully it's only a make-up day and we should be done before noon.
I finally heard back from the Scorpio. I still don't know what to say most of the time because he says he misses me. I say I miss him. He says he misses me more and I say I don't believe him.
I'm so full of shit sometimes.

Can you just... BE an activist?
I don't have the energy, drive, or lack of cynicism to actually be one anyway.
This weekend is going to be another sleep and re-energize and clean weekend.
I'm also going to have to decide soon how committed I am to certain things.
I hate having to do that.
I don't know. That's all.

It's a Beatles kind of day.
Work was great this morning. I got to be at an alternative school with my favorite co-worker. It was just the two of us and 134 kids. We were done by noon. AAAANNNDD I have tomorrow off. However, on the downside I have miscalculated my expenses and don't really know what to do about it. So, I'm putting it out there again... if anybody wants to commission me at my regular prices (which are obscenely cheap anyway, so don't whine that you aren't get a discount out of my desperation) then leave me a note or drop me a line.
PricesCollapse )
WHEEEEEEE!!!! other than that, I don't really know what to tell you.
Yep, that's life right now.
Whoring out for money.

I didn't think Oneira leaving would leave this big a hole.
But really it's just the La Vie En Rose poster that I got for her that's still sitting in the basement room.
Was it not good enough to go along to, or did you just not like it in the first place?
Please don't respond.

I gave Frost her Wedding/Engagement gift. It was wonderful. We listened to George Carlin talk about teenage masterbation and flesh colored band-aids.

I don't know.

Yay for Fountains of Wayne lyrics.
Yay for cheap fun weekends.

I was at work Friday until around six or seven at night, remembering that I left for work at four in the morning makes it worse (oh so MUCH worse). I was the one who got elected to go back to the office and I had to lug a few camera set-ups and the job information with me. Woo-hoo. That's all I have to say about that... Woo-fucking-Hoo.

Saturday was pure unadulterated awesome. Went down to Hidden Falls Park in the city, which it took me three wrong directions to find, for the furry picnic. Gah! Music and bonfire and a game of fursuit charades and hanging with good company. Ran into Beefy and Ran there and met Beefy's longtime friend Grunge (who is pure walking adorable). Avoided some people like the plague though, but that's kind of half the fun. I don't know what it was, but the park seemed to feel a little less drama filled to me than the perkins does. Maybe it's just because there is more space. Oh, and there was burgers, mmmmm, char-broiled meat. Also, S'mores, who can say no to S'mores... unless you are allergic to something in them. The scorpio txted me asking how things were going. In response I sent him a pix message of the group of fursuiters. It could have been worse. I could have sent him one of the pictures of Ran with his shirt all knotted up. Either way. I forgot my camera, but the traitor bun said he would send me a link to where he uploaded them. Hopefully he won't forget. Heh. After the 'nic disbaneded we (Kyn, Randy, Beefy, Grunge, and Me) went up to Beefy's place and decided that the best course of action was ... why yes, you guessed it... PERKINS! Ran was really wiped, so he and Kyn left after dinner. But the rest of us hung around at Beefy's until everyone was ready to conk out where they stood. I drove home, it was alread 4:30 a.m. I've been sleeping all day, getting up every once in a while to press play on Chronicles of Narnia, hoping that eventually I'll be awake during enough of it to catch the whole thing.
Most fun I've had in a while.
But I think I say that every weekend.
Oneira is moving and there's nothing I can say or do to change it.
I wish Frost was open for dinner. I haven't called and asked.
I should.
I talked to my dad about college. He said that it was ok that I just can't make it this semester, but I can't quit going to college. He said it'll be ok as long as I just don't quit going. And I won't. I want to apply for that job doing page layouts for Wizards, talk about a drool-worthy entry level job. *shrugs* But, work is too awesome right now to give up.
It's like I kept telling Sam, everything'll work out.
I wish he would have believed me just once.

I am an electronics genius.
I hooked up a 19" Dell flatscreen to a shitty old DVD player and did stereo output to some old speakers in my basement. Now I can watch the 2nd season of Scrubs 24/7.
Feel free to praise me and my ingenuity. However, anyone who feels the need to make my accomplishment small *cough*Eldy*cough* will have their face eaten.
That is all.

Ah, my night was SO weird.
It was late and I couldn't sleep so I went to wal-mart and walked around trying to clear my head. I came to the $5 movie bin and ran into a married couple who kept recommending movies to me. A couple of guys around my age came along. One was a little shorter than me, had bleach blonde hair and an amazingly perfect set of teeth. I started telling him about how I'd last seen the movie Highway and he thought it was cool. He asked what I went to school for and what I was doing now. The two guys eventually left and I said my goodbye's to the married couple (who even though they didn't find the movies they were looking for walked away with a healthy handful). I wandered around the soda section and came to the conclusion that I wanted 1 litre bottles. And heck if I was going to find cold 1 litres at wal-mart.
So, I took highway 10 and stopped in at the gas station on Sunfish where I found the emo scene kid working the third shift. We talked for about 3 hours about everything. There was religion, and work, his brother was a police officer, wal-mart, the war in Iraq, the war on terror, vietnam, mac vs. pc, halo, the new gaming systems, and momentarily anime. When I say everything I mean EVERYTHING.
I don't know. Maybe last night was meant to restore my faith in humanity a little. Maybe that wasn't its purpose, but that's what it did. I no longer have complaints or rants that come to mind about people.
Except how I can only relate this way it seems... with strangers I meet at 2-3 in the morning.
Also, I'm still losing Frost and Oneira. It helps when Frost gives me hugs and says she wants to be on my team for cranium. Just, little things, you know? Oneira still doesn't know that she needs to help. She's fallen, hard, and I don't know what to do to soften the landing, but I've got to say something and say something soon.
And here am I. On the road alone again. Seriously? I'm not jealous or hurt and really it probably is for the best. I mean, when's the last time I had a minute to center without having to center AROUND someone or something else? I don't know.
All I know is that I'll always be the one to drop everything and move half-way around the world for someone else. Why? Because I'm not living for the money or the prestigous career. I'm in it for the adventure. I'm in it for the crazies I meet in the middle of the night who assure me that the rest of the world isn't really THAT messed up. I'm in it for the moonlight that works better than headlights or streetlamps ever do. I'm in it for the all night diners and the waittresses who get the 20% tip regardless. I'm in it for the white trash, the long haul, the radio stations, the grinding gears, the stuttering transmission. I'm in it for across the country or around the world. Just tell me to pack my bags and I'm there.
