By the way... May. 26th, 2008 @ 09:05 pm
If I'm going to be posting at LJ again, and there's no history of consistant posting to suggest that I will, I'll probably be making a big and dramatic friend cut. It occurs to me that a lot of names on my list don't ring a bell with me.

If you think you might be one of them and want to remind me of the person who goes with the username, please do! :)

joshie is travelin' tonight on a plane... Jun. 12th, 2006 @ 10:28 pm
Josh just left to go visit his dad... all the way across the continent.
In fact, he's not even gone yet. His flight doesn't leave for another hour.

I'm teary missing him already.
Sunday night seems so incredibly far away.

Here's a glimpse into how much I love him: I offered to let him take my iPod with him!
(thank goodness he didn't take me up on it, its bad enough to be without my Josh this week! lol)

Tomorrow is a big day.... Apr. 27th, 2005 @ 10:16 pm
At 11a.m. I have my second interview for the loan processor job... I don't want it, but I need to get it, for now at least. For those who don't know, I've been temping at a bank in the home equity department for the past year and change. The temp position technically is only supposed to last a year, at most. So for the past few weeks I've been there on borrowed time. They aren't hiring for the position I've been in. My only options within the company were collections, which just isn't an option, and loan processor (aka "SPS", 'sales processing specialist'). From everything I've heard and seen, SPS's have it rough, lots of expectations, lots of contact with asshole bankers, lots of stress. In the job I've been doing, whenever I have a difficult banker (and there are plenty, bankers [in this company anyway] are often some of the dumbest, most obnoxious people on the planet) I can foist them on to an SPS. I'm going to miss that. And this is more than likely going to be a paycut, probably anywhere from 2 to 4K a year. Blah. On the plus side, I didn't have to go hunting for this job (I HATE job searching) and I'll be in the same building (its a close walk from home).

I guess I'm sounding like I already have the position. I don't. I'm fairly confident I'll get it, I have great internal references and I interview really well. So yeah, confident. But even still, the idea of interviewing gives me butterflies. So ummm, think good thoughts or something for me, dear readers ;)

At 6:15p.m. I'll be coming home to a wee tiny kitten boy!! Josh will picking him up in the early afternoon!!! WoooT! There will be pictures galore and they will posted without delay. I'm anxious about how Wink is going to react to the little guy. She won't actually get to see him for several days, but she'll definitely know he's here. Back in the day she hated other cats. She always got used to living with my various roomates various cats, but she never liked any of them much. But she's much much older now and more ...ermm....'mature'. When I lived in apartment with an indoor hallway last year, she always wanted to be out there playing with the neighbor cat. And she seems to want company all the time lately... so I'm optimistic.

P.S. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday (it was monday) Y'all are good people. :)

Seattle round-up Apr. 25th, 2005 @ 10:00 am
Seattle was simply awesome :)

Over The Rhine put on an astounding show. Karin's voice live sounds exactly like she does on CD. The opener, Kim Taylor, was really really good too. She accompanied the band on stage for most of the main show too, on backing vocals and guitar. Kim was a perfect complement vocally for Karin. I bought her CD, its a lot sleepier than her stage show, but it is beautiful. She also has an EP out, I should have bought that too.

We stayed towards the back of the venue during the show, its such a small place that it didn't really matter. And it was so incredibly hot in there that I needed a patch of bar to lean up against. During the break Mike and Josh started talking to a young lady named Rachel while I was buying the CDs (I also picked up Drunkards Prayer, finally). Apparently she is Karin's second cousin. :) However we didn't stick around afterward to meet the band. I would have liked to, but it really was insanely hot inside and we had been walking around being tourists all day; staying longer might have been the death of us.

So after nearly passing out at OtR, the element of the Tori show I was most looking forward to was the seating :)

Benaroya Hall has some of the most perfect acoustics I've ever encountered, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. We were on the aisle, right side of the center section, 23 rows back, which for my purposes was just about perfect. Great view, even when people chose to stand. The show itself wasn't the best Tori concert I've ever been to, but it had enough amazing highlights to keep me happy. Yes, Anastasia and Cool On Your Island prime among them. I had heard both of them live once before, but not like I did on Friday. Anastasia was flawless, and COYI was slow and gorgeous. It thrilled me that she played the full versions of both of them too, sometimes she drops parts of those two. "Tori's Piano Bar" was more than satisfying. Heart and Billy Idol, very cool. Twas good to hear Blood Roses, I'm really digging this years version. Ribbons Undone made me a little teary...for the first several minutes, after it went on about twice as long as it should have I got a little fidgety. I really wanted to hear some stuff from Venus and Choirgirl solo, but maybe she'll do that on the summer tour. The only thing I would have left out of the show was Jamaica Inn, it bordered on awful. Tori looked GORGEOUS too, hair, face, dress, all fabulous. :)

Tourist-y schtuff: Pike's Place (including some really spicy and lovely Turkish food and the first Starbucks! :p), the Science Fiction Museum (nifty!) and the Seattle Aquarium (highlight: baby sea otter!)

Oh, and IKEA. I <3 IKEA.

From abiboogs: The State Quiz! Apr. 15th, 2005 @ 02:00 am




You're Oregon!

When people talk about peace in the valley, they often think of you.
After all, you've inspired countless people to traverse rough terrain in search of you
and even think about you when playing popular computer games. Are you really up to all
the hype or are you all wet? You take shelter from the storm beneath trees, felled by
either loggers or beavers. If you were a shade of pink, it would be salmon.



Take the State Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.

Fucking RAD! :):):)

I didn't fudge results at all. Apparently this truly is where I belong.
I really do love Oregon <3

I feel like I'm missing one. I swear I've seen her 11 times, but I can only remember ten. Its frustrating.
(And I'm not 100% positive that it was the 12/21 SF show I saw in 2002. Robert do you remember which one we went to? Beth do you remember if I was at the first or second one? (that was the show where we hung around the meet & greet going "OMG! Tori died!! :p )
