Oh my gosh! I paid my year and it is almost up. So I am going to go back to 3 profile pics or whatever they are called...if it is still 3. Livejournal has changed a lot!
But it still appears to be better than facebook. Or twitter.
I will have to check back and see who see's this.
And I want to buy cards from Liselotte. Just have to figure out how to do it...

For some reason I feel much more positive today and optimistic about the near future. I am also redecorating my living room and that always gets me in the creative mood and motivates me to want to get things done. Part of my uplifted mood has to do with an article I read about a lady close to my age who started her own car detailing business. The advice she gave (and I really needed to hear) was Don't be scared to try something new, and don't care what other people think of you, just what YOU think of yourself. Something like that, but it made sense to me.
If I knew how to get the photos out of my e-mail I would show you C0r1's cute new (5 month old) pit bull puppy. Shai, his other dog, had to be put to sleep due to stomach cancer:( But the puppy, who I think is named Hanzo, is freakin' a-dor-able!!!
I am addicted to a new game through Facebook (which is almost the only reason I go there) called Bubble Popp. At the moment, my ideal way to relax would be a full glass of Cabernet, an empty house (so I wouldn't feel guilty sitting in front of a mindless video game for hours), and some tasty appetizers with the space heater on and my pets all asleep in front of it. And many many games of Bubble Popp. Oh, and it is early evening like 5ish and hours until I had to leave the puter for dinner.
There you have it! Pretty exciting stuff. See what happens when you get old?

Facebook is starting to horrify me. There are scary people that I want nothing to do with hovering over there. Specially the ice queen :0
I am looking forward to the Sän Monster and Seamus coming to visit in 2 weeks:)
Otherwise, my life, at the moment, is very depressing and stressful. There are negative people and vibes in every direction. Or loved ones in stressful situations. I keep trying to look ahead at better times. I wish they would hurry up.
That is all I have to say because I am sick and tired.
This will be the first non-white Christmas in several years. Doesn't really feel very Christmasy even though it is still very cold and we still have decorations all over the city. Well at least there will be fewer accidents and people getting injured or killed with the streets being clear.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
Went to the west side over the week-end and visited with family for our annual holiday bash. It was fun and everything went fairly smoothly. C0r1 Sän could not be at the party but came and surprised us with Seamus the night before. Probably the highlight of the week-end was when they made me go into a laughing frenzy and I could not stop. It probably won't be funny here since it had a lot to do with the delivery of the lines, but anyway it went like this.
Me to Sän: So are you going for orange hair, or is it just bleached and you are still going to add some color or something. I mean, because sometimes it looks that color just from bleach...
Sän gave me a strained look and turned to Seamus and said: Can you Translate?
Seamus, sounding like a bored, wasted teenager, came back with: What's up with your hair?
Sän then said to Seamus: Will you tell her that I had it professionally done a certain color but the color only lasted, like 3 days, so I got this stuff from the grocery store and it lasted a lot longer, but I am planning on doing something else to it.
Seamus turned and looked at me, and as if he were still translating, said: Yes.
That's it! That's the whole sound track except for my cackling, snorting, and catching of my breath only to double over again with more breath taking laughter.
I am looking forward to their visit in January, as I am sure by then I will be in need of another stress relieving belly laugh.

I can't believe I paid for another year here in LJ land and everyone has deserted me :(
Well I am still going to hang out here and share things with the stockers who watch me when I'm not looking.

Look closely at my icon. That is how I feel at this moment so I should just go to bed. :(
And I would, but "bouncing balls", my newest addiction, is calling to me. I plan to play just one game but unless I beat my very impressive high score, I know I will have to play many before I can tear myself away from the keyboard.
Things I like about the game:
1)What video game can you play where it tells you "YOU WIN" 6 or more times each game!? It really just means that you have made it to the next, more difficult level, but it plays horns of victory while telling you you are a winner!
2) You tense up slightly to play and every time you hit your target a very relaxing harp kind of sound goes from higher to lower notes and you can just feel the stress drip out of your pores.
Things I hate about the game:
1) Can't stop playing it.
2) Can't figure out how the scoring goes.
3) Can't stop playing it.
4) Can't stop playing it.
5) Have to stop playing it at some point.

I am on my way to return two chairs that I ordered on-line at Target. I was under the wrong impression that I was getting 4 chairs for the price of those 2! And I didn't realize they had to be assembled! Are you kidding me! $120 PER CHAIR! And I have to put it together!!?? For that price you should send a buff (scantily clad)young man to put them together for us and fix anything that isn't perfect! Do they think people are made of money??? No, what they think is that we will be too lazy to make the return and they will have successfully ROYALLY ripped us off. Well, they don't know who they are dealing with! Grumble grumble.
Actually, they are probably expecting people to pay attention to what they are ordering. . . but hey! All of the other pictures that showed 2 chairs, had 2 chairs in the carton. This one showed 2 chairs but you only get one! Those bitches.
I better go now and beat the holiday shopping frenzy.
Hope everybody has a Thanksgiving filled with things to be thankful for. . . and no domestic violence 911 calls :)
