semisweet: ([dc] gonna kick a little ass.)
i want to update and i find myself aimlessly clicking around the internet, looking for something interesting to post. i've come up with exactly nothing, tho, so i suppose you'll have to settle for just me.

bullet points, maybe?

  • the most important thing i have to say is that it looks like i'll be moving to new york fucking city in july! \o/ scott got an offer from a firm in the city and he's probably going to take it. he has another interview on monday with a different firm in long island, but unless they offer him way more money, he's planning on taking the job he's been offered. i am all sorts of stoked about this, both because i get to get out of albany and because new york cityyyyy! we're planning on going down and doing some apartment-hunting the weekend after next, which i'm sure will be horrible. maybe not, tho - we did a bit of looking around online and found a few places that looked promising, and while they were obviously more expensive than our place here, they weren't, like, life-ruiningly pricey. recession ftw, i suppose.

  • next weekend i get a faceful of dfc and the boyz as well as an opportunity to hold [ profile] ninasfeet and [ profile] brookie0cookie! and...who the hell else is coming? idk. but yes. northampton on saturday, new haven on sunday and then down to the city on monday for the taping of jimmy fallon. i'm gonna get NO fucking sleep; i can't wait.

  • very restless lately. real life is just so bland between random incidents of tour and other shenanigans.

  • for no real reason, i have set up two dreamwidth accounts. idk. i am souvenir and also semisweet over there, in case i add you and you're like wtf. i'm not sure what, if anything, i'm going to use them for, but there you go.

  • my icon makes me giggle.

  • relatedly: david cook, as per usual, is my favorite person ever.

  • lastly, still fangirling the hell out of miss florence here.

    so dfc's stepsister has a twitter. and i'm a creeper, so i followed her. which, whatever, she has other fans following her, so i didn't think anything of it.

    HOWEVER. apparently if you follow her, she follows you back. D: so, now she's going to see me talking all the time about how i want to bone her brother! D: D: D: AWKWARD. and idk what to do. i mean, sure, i could kick her off and block her, but...i can't do that to dfc's (step)sister! whatever. she's totally going to end up unfollowing me once she discovers how annoying/spammy/inappropriate i am. :/

    went and spent a couple of days with [ profile] themightybee this weekend! she is awesome, as usual, and on saturday we went to an inside the actors' studio sort of shindig with the lovely angela kinsey. she is funny and adorable and charming and it was exciting. she ships dwangela pretty hard. hee. we also (that'd be sarah and i, not angela and i) ate at the melting pot (YUM) and lounged about and watched some freaks & geeks. good times. (we also were together when we learned about bea arthur's death. so fucking sad. she was a hell of a lady. ♥ RIP *clings to betty white forfuckingever*)

    then tonight i saw believers never die 2! it was SO hot and humid in the venue, ugh. but cobras were fucking amazing, as usual, and then metro station was too embarrassing to be real (mostly trace, omg D:, he must be stopped, you guys) and then FALL OUT BOY HAPPENED TO MY FACE. i love them, band of my heart, favorite band ever, etc etc. and they fucking played "hum hallelujah"!!! i was just thinking today on my drive back from rhode island that i was sad that "hum hallelujah" hadn't made the setlist, because it's my favorite fall out boy song. and then tonight pete's all "we haven't played this on this tour, but we want to tonight, it means a lot to us [blah blah whatever]" and the first chords sounded and i lost my shit. <33333 sadly, tho, we didn't get "chicago is so two years ago." :( i would've taken that over "tiffany blews" tbh.

    oh god, and "what a catch," askldfjlf;lsdkfj. predictably, i cried. <33333

    semisweet: ([misc] breakfast at tiffany's.)
     it's strange.

    i actually have everything done that needs to be done. i turned in any work that had to be written, i paid my overdue cable bill, i even downloaded an iphone application to track my daily caloric intake (i have 289 calories left today!) so i can work on losing weight and feeling better about myself.

    i am not, at this exact moment, shirking any responsibilities.

    it feels weird.
    semisweet: ([kelly] like a little black dress.)

    ~ so i'm down in the keys visiting my mom. i missed it here. it's, like, 75 degrees right now and the sun is shining and there's a breeze off the ocean. sigh.

    ~ my poor bb booth is fucked on the march madness thingie. random fucking onslaught of people voting for house last night. boo! oh well. team spike! (somewhat relatedly, i've been sick of SPN for quite a while and i am really ready for dean to go down in this thing.)

    ~ AI last night was a whole bunch of whatever. i missed a lot of people, but in brief: allison is my bbgirl, i loved kris, gokey is pretty adorb, and that's about it. adam still makes me want to spork myself in the ear when he sings. STOP THAT. :/ speaking of self-sporkings, dialidol makes me want to spork myself in the eye

    ~ i think i'm going to see butch walker on saturday! scott has a ton of work to do this weekend so i might just go down there solo. i hate to leave again so soon after i get back (i get home tomorrow night) but...butch! ♥

    ~ i see dfc and lots of my beautiful friends NEXT WEEK!!!!! \o/

    man, dollhouse is getting awesome. i just watched last night's episode and i got chills at the end. and next week looks intense! exciteddddd. are you guys watching dollhouse? because you should be!

    i painted my nails late last night and went to bed before the polish had fully hardened, so they're kind of, like, textured now. oops.

    have i ever mentioned how much i hate aggressively tagged photos? i mean really, why even bother posting them? however, this video makes me gleeful. COME HERE, NEAL, I WILL GIVE YOU SEX HAIR. <3
    semisweet: ([buffy] clear morning light.)
    bones is so cute, you guys! :)

    i saw half of carmen (the opera) tonight. scott wanted to go, so we went and i was sooooooo bored, omg. but luckily, after the first act scott told me he wasn't feeling it, so at intermission we cut out of there and got cheesecake instead. upgrade!

    both my mom and scott love my hair. this is vaguely miraculous.

    off to watch more bones! david boreanaz is ridiculously charming, ugh. and his wrist tats make me hot.
    semisweet: ([dc] best part of beLIEve is the lie.)
    so i discovered that, oddly enough, photobooth does the best job of properly picking up my new hair color (thx for the compliments, bbs! ilu!). so i of course decided i needed to take a new myspace/facebook photo, but idk which one to use. help?

    under a cut because it's breaking my layout! )
    semisweet: ([misc] shhh have a cupcake.)
    the hair, it is red.

    pls excuse how i a) look ridiculous, b) am in a towel, and c) have on no makeup, and just focus on the pretty shiny red! i took a zillion pictures and that's the one that comes closest to how the color actually looks. i kind of love it. :D
    semisweet: ([dr] i'm the last of my kind.)
    unpopular and vaguely depressing opinion: i can't stand adam lambert. i expected to love him and he has all the ingredients that should make me love him, and instead he makes me want to die. idk.


    my not-watching AI hasn't been so hot, but i realized tonight that i really just don't care this year. i sort of love nate marshall who's on next week, but i think i'm the only one so he'll be gone quickly. danny gokey is darling but i'm tired of hearing about his wife already and his taste in songs seems wretched. adam, well, i already explained how i feel about him. honestly, the only thing that could make me actually care about any of these dudes would be if they turned into david cook. *shrug* actually, the only person i've been at all psyched about, oddly enough, is allison iraheta. i loved her voice and she's adorable, even if she was incredibly stoned nervous in her interview with ryan. and her favorite artist is p!nk, and she fangirls jack white and franz ferdinand and stuff. and i totally want to dye my hair like hers, ngl. here's a video from tonight.

    in unrelated news, the other day scott heard about a yoga class at the ymca on wednesdays at 6:30, and we decided we would go together. and i won't lie, i totally looked forward to it all day, and i made sure we had dinner early and all. so we go to the Y and fill out paperwork or whatever and then ask where the yoga class is being held...and it turned out that it's on wednesdays at 6:30 a.m.. FAIL. :(

    also i tried to jailbreak my iphone a little while ago and it won't work. i think i need to get a USB hub; some tutorial i was reading suggested that that would resolve my issue.

    i'm sad that i'm done with buffy and angel. i started watching generation kill earlier and it seems interesting so far (i only saw the first little bit) but...not the same.

    i am generally woeful, can you tell? /o\

    OCC makes things better:
    semisweet: ([dr] i'm the last of my kind.)
    oh hai bbs hai! in case anyone doesn't have twitter/doesn't follow my twitter and was concerned about my, y'know, being alive *waves to lara*, i'm fine! XD i spent a few days with my lovely bff during which we made couscous and cupcakes and bought new underwear and watched rent and hedwig and my so-called life. win all around, i would say.

    i have two episodes left of buffy and it's breaking my heart, tbh. also, i tried to resist because i lovelovelove buffy/angel and also i'm stubborn, but spike and buffy kind of kill me all over. the two of them in that house in "touched"? my HEART!

    saw idol last night. yawn. i hated almost everyone, and even danny (who i think is absolutely adorable) underwhelmed me and was waaaaaaay overpimped, imo. and wow, what a lot of sucktastic song choices. i miss dfc on my tv every week.

    speaking of mr. cook, i have to mock something on his official board for a minute. join me, won't you?

    really? )

    pop quiz: why do i find this picture hilarious?

    more laterrrrrr.

    semisweet: ([bouh] drunk = tewer.)
    WATCH DOLLHOUSE TONIGHT! it's going to be good and i'm excited and i want you bitches to talk to me about it. it's on at 9 p.m. on fox.

    DFC TOUR STARTS TONIGHT! i am epically excited even tho i'm not seeing it until march 20. people are already starting to post pics and things from meeting the boys earlier in the day.

    omgneal. *grabby hands*

    ALSO: i saw ludo last night and it was awesome! the venue was teeny and andrew's mic kept shocking him, but they were rad and hilarious and i fucking loooove them. even scott had fun! i REALLY recommend seeing them if you get a chance. they're taking a break from touring after this, so check out their dates and get your ass to a show! ♥_♥
    semisweet: ([dc] wish your body will be broken again)

    dear grocery bagger dude:

    i realize your job is probably not terribly exciting, and that the art of bagging groceries is most likely not terribly important to you. but this is your job. would it kill you to put even a little effort in? would it really have been that terrible to divide my purchases into three bags of manageable weight instead of the two heaviest little grocery bags ever? did i really need to spend the walk from my car to my house completely convinced that the straining bags in my hands were about to tear, splattering my soon-to-be dinner all over the sidewalk?

    a little more pride in your work, please, bro. >:[

    no love,
    i have to take a shower and i really don't feel like it. maybe i can just douse myself in cheap perfume.[/gratuitous fob quote & also /crabby update]

    ok, so i bought a pair of uggs today, and the girl at the store told me you're not supposed to wear socks with them. i am dubious about this.

    uh. thoughts?

    yesterday morning: i was in a hurry, so instead of going to starbucks for my coffee, i decided to drive thru dunkin donuts, which is much closer. i pulled into the drive-thru and there was a sign that it was closed, so i went inside and ordered an iced mocha swirl latte, at which point i was informed that they were totally out of milk and therefore unable to fill my order. wtf? that'll teach me to abandon my 'bucks. D:

    yesterday afternoon: i finally saw the wrestler and it was wonderful. mickey rourke broke my heart. and damn, marisa tomei looks good. O.O highly highly recommended.

    last night: i got thru 5.18 of buffy ('the body' and 'forever' both had me sobbing! ;___;) and 2.17 of angel (when he buys cordy the new clothes, omg, hilaaaaarious). also lindsey is really hot. jsyk. love both shows to bits. ♥_♥

    this morning: i watched this week's FNL. she brought him a cheeseburger!!! oh my HEART.

    today: i got my first (that i can recall) 'wrong number' text from some poor girl who was trying to ask a classmate about their exam tomorrow. i told her she had the wrong number but wished her luck on her test. :)

    now: i am about to write a couple of reviews for work and then moar tv!! \o/

    ...and that's what's going on with me. :D

    my first review has been published! (dfc fans will undoubtedly be amused by something in that review.) \o/ [edit: they're upgrading the server right now so it's not working - it should be back sometime on friday (1/23).]

    if you guys would click that, even if you don't read it, it'd be awesome, because the site is having a contest amongst the writers for most page clicks. and i know you bbs can click. thank you! ♥

    [also, you can follow appcraver on twitter, if you're so inclined.]
    semisweet: ([misc] giselle.)

    weee, guys, i'm excited; i got a job! well, ok, not a job job, more of a freelance thing, but whatever, income! i'm going to be revewing iphone apps for, which is like PERFECT for me!

    i am unreasonably happy about this. probably because i've been completely useless for so long and now i'm finally doing something productive for which i will get paid. \o/ i needed this. so, i have to say thank you to my girl [ profile] dizzysyd for sending me the job listing. ilu! ♥

    (hee, how appropriate that i'm posting this via iphone app, amirite?)

    semisweet: ([buffy] clear morning light.)

    i slept in this morning (as i do most days), which was lovely. i was warm and cozy because we just got new flannel sheets, we have two comforters on the bed and i slept in two(!) hoodies. i woke up, checked my mail on my phone, stared at the ceiling, and played a few games of scrabble on my iphone, not really wanting to get out of bed because of the aforementioned warm and cozy feeling. while i was playing scrabble, jester (that'd be the cat) was making all sorts of noise, like, running around under the bed and banging into things. which i thought was weird, but sometimes he just gets fired up for no real reason. i called to him a couple of times, but he ignored me, so i went back to my scrabble.

    finally i decided to get out of bed, so i got out from under the covers and climbed out, and then i see jester by the door to the bedroom looking all pounce-y. so i'm like, okay, whatever. then i get closer, and of course i'm not wearing my contacts and my glasses are in the bathroom so i can't really see, but i see that he's got something he's kind of tossing around. and then i get closer and i see that it's moving. because it's a mouse.


    i wigged and called scott, who wouldn't come home from work to rescue me, lol. i managed to distract jester with a ribbon and trap the mouse under an overturned little trash can from the den. i slapped a book on top of it and shut the door to the room. he's still in there and will remain there until scott gets home, because eek! :( i'm hoping he has enough air under there. i don't actually know what kind of shape he's in or if he'll make it, but i'm too creeped out to try any heroic measures.

    dude, i've never actually seen a cat play with a mouse before. when people referred to "game[s] of cat and mouse" or whatever, i just i don't know. i know it's his nature and i'm over it now, but i was actually mad at the cat. the poor mouse kept trying to, like, hobble away and then he'd grab it again and just...lfjld;gflg AWFUL. :((((((((


    in other news, i finished S4 of buffy and S1 of angel. love! angel is so funny, both the show and the character, and it's awesome because angel was never funny on buffy, really. and make no mistake, i looooooove him all tortured and brooding (that's kind of my favorite sort of boy, at least on tv), but some of the stuff on angel makes me shriek with giggles. it's awesome.

    now a few things which i will spoiler-cut because even though angel ended a billion years ago, lara hasn't watched it yet and i don't want to spoiler her for stuff she might not know about. there's also some random buffy stuff in here and it all got a little teal deer, so sorry! XD

    we help the helpless. )

    ETA: OH ALSO. has anyone noticed how often microphones dip into frame on these shows? i swear i've noticed it at LEAST four times and i NEVER see that kind of thing.
