hi all [14 Jul 2006|02:17am]
[ mood | groggy ]

hey, i swear is still exist, i just haven't been updating. i'm sure you all have waited with bated breath. life is an amazingly confusing mixture of good and bad right now, and i've a feeling i will be building some enormous amounts of character over the next few months, what with being rediculously broke and trying to make someplace feel like home.

homelessness has completely saturated my existence for the last 2 years, approximately, and i'm ready for that to stop. no roots = very odd feeling. though i am very very glad to be on my own 2 feet as often as possible. i am however learning to lean occasionally on someone else - i just need to stop making myself feel guilty about it when i do. oh i feel so odd.

i'm hoping that once my hammock is hung i will suddenly feel magically rooted and secure. i don't know why, but hanging my hammock and cooking a pie feel like two things that will anchor me in place and wrap me in security like a warm blanket.

god i'm getting weirder and weirder as the hours go on......


oh and i'm in love with the dresden dolls. i just heard them for the 1st time 2 days ago and i've probably listened to their album..... seven thousand times. and i just can't seem to get it loud enough to satisfy me. i want to have their babies. i've never really felt like i wanted to make out with a sound before, but i'm really feelin that now.


....i really should start sleeping more.

goodnight.

friend me if you dare.

other than that, over my lonely easter weekend, i conquered katamari damacy!!! oh how addictive that game is. my hands felt like what i imagine an old arthritic lady's hands would feel like. but it was fun. yay prince of the cosmos!!! 

also, i now officially have a place to stay over the summer.  i'll be renting the guest bedroom of blake's martial arts instructor.  at least i know i'll be safe there.  it's cheap, and it oughtta be fairly pleasant.  yay for knowing where i'll be in a few weeks!

most importantly, i have resolved that i'm gonna cut loose and have more fun.  i've been a bit of a lame ass lately, and i need to start runnin around and having real fun before i become chronically boring.  but what can i do that doesn't cost money or require a lot of friends???  help me!

this weekend will be kappa weekend.... sigh.  oh how i loathe kappa weekend.  i suppose i will survive, though. a friend of mine is throwing a sexy party, so i may just go there and then hide the rest of the weekend.  oh well.

i just stole this from a facebook group, because it made me happy.

enjoy.

"I understand that Scissors can beat Paper, and I get how Rock can beat Scissors, but there's no fucking way Paper can beat Rock. Paper is supposed to magically wrap around Rock leaving it immobile? Why the hell can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors,why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class?I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody, a rock would tear that shit up in 2 seconds. When I play rock/ paper/ scissors I always choose rock.Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh shit, I'm sorry I thought paper would protect you, asshole."

1. it was weird as HELL
2. i didn't dislike it.

my brain jury is still out trying to figure out how much i liked it. i am so confused.

[ mood | extremely groggy ]

well it's spring break and i'm stuck in my dorm by myself. everyone is gone, including blake, which makes me sad, but i'll get over it. untill this week is over, though, i will be lonely and bored and unable to sleep. today i did random google searches of my friends/relatives names to see what came up. that's how bored i was. although, i did find out that my aunt was a cover model for ms. fitness magazine (seriously she was - fall 1999).

oh i am so lonely. i bought tv dinners and twinkies at walmart at 11pm yesterday.... TWINKIES!!!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME????? i felt pretty pathetic.

well, fortunately, i will be going to houston on thursday to play glow in the dark mini golf with megan and matt. that should be super fun.

in other news, i've been painting a mural with my sister on a friend's dining room. well, it's grape vines all over her walls and ceiling - does that count as a mural? anyway, i'm gonna toot my own horn and say that it looks really freakin awesome. that and she's gonna tell everyone she knows about our murabilities, and that could be a pretty cool way to pay my way through college. if anyone's interested, give me an email address and i'll send you pics.

well, i think i'm gonna start reading till i fall asleep now.

g'night.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!  I'm updating!  Can you believe your eyes!  It's becoming like a semi-anual process.  I guess I started to feel neglectful when John "I update twenty seven times a day" Hackert nudged me.  

Speaking of Mr. Update, I'm getting more addicted to video games, yet definitely not getting better at them.  I played through the whole train level of resident evil zero, and still didn't have a firm grasp on the walking concept by the end of it all.  oh so sad....  but i did shoot many zombies (and waste much infinite ammo) and swear a lot.  boy does that game make me swear.

I'm drinking tangerine flavored gatorade.  it's a new experience, and i'm pretty sure I like it.  yay!  that and i'm getting seriously addicted to pop tarts.  that's gonna totally negate all the working out i've been doing.  oh, by the way, i've been working out a lot.  I wanna be able to kick ass like milla jovovich.  ......but i think i'm setting myself up for failure, since she's ukranian and all.

in other news, i've decided i am completely incapable of succeeding in labs, except of course geology lab, which i unfortunately finished with over a year ago.  :(
insert.... random geology nerds!


but as for physics lab, this is my second semester attempting to write physics lab reports, and the one i'm working on currently is already a day late and consists of the following (i'll actuall cut and paste it):

Objective:  
Yep, that's as good as it's getting right now.  .....oh yeah, i'm doomed.

But at least this semester i have dr. willet for history again.  oh how i love his class, what with his weird obsession with making fun of us kids and our ipods.  we're "the ipod generation" according to him.  ....i don't even have an ipod....


oh well.  doom doom doom the end.... ooh whazzat?

HOORAY RENAISSANCE FESTIVAL!!!! [21 Nov 2005|08:23pm]
[ mood | giddy ]

so i got to go to the renaissance fest yesterday... FINALLY!  oh i live all year for that event.  and this time, there was an added bonus... I GOT TO BRING TWO REN FEST VIRGINS!!  blake and shannon had never been before and i got the all dressed up and brought them along.  it was so freaking fun.  that and my sister came in costume for the first time evar.  i think it's safe to say she'll never go out of costume again.  oh so much fun was had.

they, however, were not the only ones with firsts - jennifer convinced me to try a cigar.  i had never ever smoked anything in my 20 years and 11+ months on this earth, but she wanted a cigar and didn't want to smoke the whole thing, so she decided blake and i were gonna share with her.  she sold me by informing me that you don't inhale cigar smoke into your lungs (you just hold it in your mouth), and it was an amaretto flavored cigar.  i then decided i'd give it a try.  it wasn't so bad either, though it did make the wine taste different.  i definitely won't be doing it on a regular basis, but i do see the appeal.

but anyway, a wonderful time was had by all, even though the last weekend was only days from my 21st birthday... oh well, i guess i'll just have to have more fun next time. 

i'm pretty sure i'm gonna be all over the internet now, because jennifer and i had a million and a half photos taken (we were both fairies, and that seems to be a big attraction).  that's all fine with me, unless i find pics of our heads pasted on naked bodies or anything like that.

anyhoo, a great time was had by all.

me at the fest

left to right: my sister jennifer, blake, me, shannon.  we're sitting in fairy -  pirate order.

[ mood | entertained ]

hello all.

well, i've been feeling quite a bit better lately, especially since i had a rather convenient mini emotional breakdown sunday night/monday most of the day.  i've had a lot of issues to deal with, and they've been making me pretty crazy, but now i'm getting better.


i've given myself an ultimatum to reduce my stress and simplify my life before all else.  if that means graduating 3 years late, then that's fine.  i'll still have my degree, and it'll be no different if it comes later than expected.  i just won't have ulcers or mental illness.  i'm going to make my life much easier on myself.

thing number two that is helping me feel tranquil is that i've been studying up on some basic buddhist ideas.  i never thought i'd end up doing this, but i'm really drawn to it, and after using some very basic meditation techniques, i felt immediately soothed to an amazing degree.  if it can work wonders that fast, i think this is something i'll have to invest in.  seriously.  i may not call myself a "buddhist" or anything, but i at least think they have awesome ideas and a fantastic outlook on life.  who knows where this will end up taking me.

i feel pretty good about riding on the currents of life for a while, just so long as they're not headed for big pointy rocks.

 

...on the lighter side, i've been getting pretty hooked on getting on facebook and finding the groups involving uber conservative and uber liberals, especially the ones dealing with gay issues, and reading the back and forth banter between these people.  oh my goodness, it is so freaking funny.  especially in these a&m groups, because all of these super texan super conservatives from paranoid conservative backgrounds are so freaking stupid and passionate simultaneously, which usually leads to amazing amounts of very angry, panicky attacks using horrible grammar and lots of swearing.  one of my personal favorites is as follows:

(under the subject "fuck faggots")

Patrick Bain writes: being gay is not natural... do you see male dogs fucking each other ... no

quit crying gay pride fags

responses:

clearly you've never owned dogs
 
actually, I think I once saw two castrated male dogs trying to hump each other. It was one of the strangest things I saw in my life... you'd think neutering a dog would kill its sex drive but apparantly it didn't do a damn thing for these two.

Robby Ballentine writes: Gay people scare me. This is all too funny.

 

anyway, i've been finding this all very entertaining, and while i was perusing these, i found a user with the absolute best profile pic in the history of the world:

is that not totally awesome?

blah [07 Nov 2005|07:32pm]
[ mood | thirsty ]

i'll say with some caution that i'm feeling like i may be updating more regularly at least for a while. that is my prophecy.

so i tried to watch underworld the other day, but megan was over and we made matadors (tequila, pineapple juice, and lime juice) and she got WASTED!!!! oooh it was so fun! she kept demanding more beverages. i think she nearly injured matt a few times. needless to say it was impossible to pay attention to a movie under these circumstances... so i got all my makeup out and made megan look like a hooker. it was so fun!

hopefully i'll get the time to finish watching underworld soon, since i've been in a big vampire mood lately and i can only keep it from blockbuster so long. but i do have a history test and a physics report and general homework and fencing - not to mention a certain 1 year anniversary to take care of this weekend. YAY!

so the moral of the story is: megan is a hilarious drunk, but don't try to watch a movie while she's drinking - you won't be able to tear yourself from the hilarity of megan.


(oh and by the by, the drinking occasion was that it's the anniversary of the "blue poison" event last year on biker weekend... you know what i'm talkin about, tegan).

HI EVERYBODY!

time for my quarterly update.  things are going wellish.  i'm trying to write a damned lab report and i don't wanna.  i've gotten about 1 page (single space) of way too technical stuff written and i feel like my head's gonna explode!

so i decided to take a break and just say hello to all my good lj buddies out there, and also to let you know that although i rarely update, i still jump online and read what folks are up to once in a while. 

really all i have going on these days is class and working for dr. v.  isn't it exciting???????? 

as far as today goes, we were gonna watch a video on serial killers in my psych class, but the vcr was acting crazy, so we had to skip it.  that made me sad.  but dr cole said we may watch it later, so i am appeased for now. 

planning to go to ren fest both days of final weekend (19th and 20th).  i'm super excited especially since i have 2 costumes planned (fairy and pirate).  i'm gonna be too broke to buy anything while i'm there, but at least i can have fun and get some of that awesome corn on the cob there.  YAY!

so i'm back on my cirque du soleil kick, and i'm on it hard (i was really never off it, honestly).  i need them to come to houston again!  and when they get here i'll knock over a gas station if i have to to get my tapis rouge tickets (first 5 rows or so, backstage passes, privete bathrooms, wine and hors d'eurves, and premium parking spot).

in other news, not this weekend, but the next one (nov 11 ish) will mark 1 year of me and blake being together.  it's so crazy it's been a year.  i love him so much.  i don't know what we're gonna do, since we're both so broke, but we'll figure something out.  i wanted to go camping, but believe it or not, everythings booked up.  it sucks bigtime.  oh well hopefully we'll get to do something and we'll get some private time.

as for other milestones, this will be my first holiday season of not being affiliated with my former religion, and thus i may be participating in the holiday festivities.  i already dressed up on halloween (even though i just went to class and then to rent a movie).  i'll be doing thanksgiving with blake's family, and will probably be going to my extended family's xmas shindig for the first time EVAR.  that's all well and good, but then there's the other prospect....

I'M GONNA HAVE MY FIRST BIRTHDAY EVER!!!!!  i'll be turning 21 dec 14 and it will be my first time in my whole life to celebrate my birthday!  how crazy is that???????????  it's also the last day of finals, so i'm really gonna be in the mood for some good times, but my big sister seems to have some things planned out for me.  i'm excited.  (now i can get my own bailey's, jeff! ^_^),  I'M SO EXCITED!

well, i guess i should be getting back to my paper now.... sigh... DON'T WANNA!!  ....oh well.  bubye.

updating [05 Sep 2005|02:54pm]
[ mood | melancholy ]

hello all. i'm updating. can you believe your eyes??????????
well, life's been terribly exciting. i've got 16 hours worth of classes (one of which is completely foreign to me: dance), and all kinds of financial and personal problems bombard me daily. but i'll get over it.
oh and i'm gaining weight. it took me a rediculously long time to button and zip my favorite pants today, and i've discovered that i have to unbutton my pants (pretty much all of them) after i eat now. and the saddest thing is that i can't afford new clothes. guess that's more incentive to work out, eh?
good news: i got a job as a professor's assistant these days. so now i have a job for the week and a job for the weekend. hopefully with that combo i'll be able to afford my car note, my gas, food, and maybe even some clothes that fit. i also hope that i'll have time to study as well. but we shall see what we shall see.
so i saw the transporter 2... wow, it really really sucked. i really really want a refund. and i really really want jason statham to go back to british films. hopefully he'll be in layer cake.
blake's birthday is this weekend! and i'm totally totally broke. it makes me very very sad. worse yet i probably won't even get to see him all weekend. *sniff* he's going to dallas and i have to work (and i mean i REALLY HAVE TO work). so sad. :(
very good news: i realized that my 21st birthday is on the last day of finals. and better yet, i don't have any finals that day. and you know what that means.... NO CLASS OR OTHER RESPONSIBILITIES THE NEXT MORNING!!!! WOOHOO!!!! the day of my birthday is going to be taken up by whatever big surprise my sister has cooked up for me. i'm so excited!
oh and anyone who's on facebook can look me up now. i now have a facebook. Abby Lamb. FIND ME! FRIEND ME!
well, i think i'm gonna go now and do some crunches and study history. bye bye!

reasons i am a dork (aside from the fact that i'm filling this out) [18 Jul 2005|08:08am]
[ mood | really really dorky ]

meme:
List 5 reasons you are a dork. And make them good reasons.
Justify them. Explain them. Be loud and proud of how big a dork you are! Then pick the 5 biggest dorks you know and have them do the meme.

response:

1) 3 words: Cirque du Soleil!

I am completely obsessed with cirque du soleil.  At one point i rented 6 of the dvd's over the course of a week and watched them all over and over.  i probably spent a good 40 hours total watching those things.  i'm a member of the online cirque club, i've been to one cirque show (verakai), and am already planning to buy the $250 tapis rouge tickets for corteo when it makes it to houston (probably more than a year from now.)  i also want to go see the "adult" cirque show "zumanity" in vegas.  to me that just sounds all kinds of sexy.  i try not to think about it too much, but i actually get a little irritated that i can't go back in time to get my parents to work on my flexibility starting at babyhood so that i could be a crazy contortionist.  it makes me very sad that i'm not flexible at all.  But i do juggle, contact juggle, swing poi, and put out small fires in my mouth.

2)  I attend the renaissance festival in full costume several times a year

Since I was 14, i've been going to the renaissance fest in costume as many times as i can possibly afford.  i've been a fairy a few times, an elf, a pirate, and a regular renaissance person (which is much more lame than all the other ones).  Even more dorky still, i like to go out after ren fest to normal places (movie rental stores, walmart, coffee shops, etc) in costume just to be an attention whore.

3) I have a dangerously retarded sense of humor.  example:

The other day at The Spot, i saw this baby that looked like he was wearing all of charles bronson's hair on his tiny little head.  Well, i started to laugh uncontrollably at the baby and had to run upstairs before his mom got mad at me.  i continued to laugh for about 15 minutes, and then i saw the baby again when we got dessert, and i started up again.  that mom probly thought i was nuts.

4)  I try too hard to be Indian sometimes

I love indian food, indian music, indian clothes, and all kinds of stuff from india (not native american).  the cashiers at the indian grocery store in pearland recognize me when i come in (same applies at the adjacent restaurant).  i have my own recipe for henna paste and do my own mehndi.  i also have a slight desire to have an indian wedding, but I'M JUST NOT INDIAN!!!

5)  I am THE lord of the rings afficianado

I have been reading and studying the works of j.r.r. tolkein since i was 10 years old.  i even studied up on the languages of middle earth for a while (though not well enough to have retained anything).  i'm planning on re-reading the silmarillion when i have more pleasure reading time, and also all of the shaping of middle earth books and lost tales, plus getting a middle earth atlas.  yes, i did go to one of the lotr movies with elf ears on (which i made myself - and they were convincing enough that i had a few druggies on montrose ask me if they were my real ears).  i also have trouble fully enjoying the movies  (ESPECIALLY the two towers) because of my extensive book knowlege. 

Now that I have revealed my inner dork I command the following five people to do so as well:

shankeyche owl_grove_tree royalchaos beefygeek0911 comekah  (though i think chrissy's already done this, i just couldn't find anyone else who hasn't)
