I started this collection to forward to [ profile] hoshizora to thank him for indulging me and mine on his birthday-night. But then it was [ profile] kuchisake_onna's day and now [ profile] hlaron's day...
So I'm just going to post these to say, whoever you are, here's to making it the bestest day!

First 2 inspired by Stephen + Bang, Bang [of The Brothers Bloom], madeby The Family Johnson. Therefore its Canon! )
Manhattan. P.F'n. Changs, Boston Commons.
2 oz. Woodford Reserve
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
1 dash Blood Orange Bitters
(proportions estimated)
I shit you not, this is the best Manhattan I've had (Woodford is the suspected culprit)& From P.F'n. Chang's! Usually I'll default to my chain-restaurant drink in this situation, but I guess it's all about the bartender. I never did catch hizzer name.

fuck yeah mismatched socks!
long live the johnsons.



Balthazar Ginger Citrus Iced Tea (minus the ice). Making its way up to 64th & York in a cab. When we reach our destination, the ice shall be added.

It's sort of a lot of work for a drink. But it's the kind of drink that makes it worth it.

I don't like ginger or iced tea, but something tells me I should try this drink.

Just kidding, like anyone would sponsor my lubricated rantings, but seriously this blog is awesome!
You know, for a wordpress.

Step 3.C] RE: Holiday Sale. If I haven't replied yet to your commission request or comment that does not mean I'm not doing. Quite the opposite actually, it took more time to write up the "No, I can't take on your work load and here's why" e-mails than I'd thought. You'll be hearing from me soon.
Just sort of wanted to clear up a thing that happens to be biting me on the ass lately. Read more )
Thank you [ profile] kuchisake_onna for making such a lovely specimen with which to poke at.

Step 2.C] RE: 2008 Conventions. Every comment, e-mail and response was noted and it cleared up my head in a big way. I can't express my thanks enough, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, no really. Because now I can move onto bigger things.

Like the long awaited...
Step 4. I've been offered a show in LA. I'm to understand it's an infamous Comic Shop that hosts art shows for local artists year-round. A friend, whose cousin owns it, threw my name into the hat and I said yes. [My exact words were "oh, maybe. I don't know, uh, I can't think of--well, I'd like to but I don't have anything--can I get back to you-won't take no for an answer will you?"] There is a bit of contract signing and schedule okay-ing but I'm aiming for spring [preferably April] which gives me from now till then to put together something resembling productivity, creativity and sense. That's good, yeah? :D

As soon as I get confirmation from them I'll have things, like Dates, Times and Location but I'm playing it fairly close to the chest until then.

One major difficulty is wrapping my brain around setting up a gallery when I'm on the other side of the continent. But I'm a big picture girl, the rest will sort itself out...or I'll make an ass of myself, which I'm pretty fine with as well. This is pretty much why I solicited help from a faery, that and handholding.

If by some miracle this manages to work out the show will be dragged then to London, possibly August. And honestly, wherever else I wrangle an invite and a couch to sleep on.

Actually, I think the more difficult part is deciding what to put in it. I'm good with organizing galleries, mounting and transporting things, insurance and reassurances, but I've never been the artist victim in the hot-seat before. Heheh, oooh nerves, they're all tingly just thinking.

This leads to Step 5., no, not the tingling.

Alright then, since I'm about to disappear for the next 40-ish hours in preparation for the rest of April-related doom, I thought I should update beforehand instead of losing my mind trying to play catch up later this week when it would be entirely inconvenient to do so.

Wednesday - The perfect reason to dye my hair something silly and purchase and wear a stupid shirt. Just what I needed to shake the ghetto skank off my skin, yeah bitches XD
Placebo @ Roseland

Thursday - While not my actual birthday there will be a party to celebrate the event. Incidentally, I will not be there as my Sibling Sister and Wife!J are hosting so I'll be home sitting with the childrens. But if you're up for it, you should go for two very good reasons; 1) rounds need to be had in my absence 2) funds go to pay for my nieces' education, etc.

Friday - AnimeBoston or Bust! ^_^

Edits: Yes the Con is next week, yes, I'm an idiot for over-cramming shits into my April, no I haven't slept yet.
This year has been a non-stop ride of oddities. There was a death that actually brought my family together instead of creating drama like it damn well should have. There were the gratuitous job-offers from these really upscale '9-5'ers that had my head spinning [which I couldn't rightfully accept because I think my heart would actually stop just to spite me if I ever signed up for another forty-hour a week corporate job]. There was my dad and my boyfriend, associating and having a conversation, for the first time, ever. There was my parents, together in the same room, being nice and buying me things [also for the first time ever].

Every predetermined plan I made this year so far has fallen through, which makes me have very mixed feelings as to whether I should be disappointed with my life as it stands or genuinely surprised. There is just no middle ground!

But nothing, I mean nothing has prepared me for this latest turn of events.

Normally on this, the 100th day of the year [101st on Leap Years] I plan things, so many things. I travel places; I see shows and events I wouldn't attend otherwise. I tend to do them alone or with perfect strangers. I took my GED, my college entrance exam... and first met [ profile] epicyclical, [ profile] folk & [ profile] ali_wildgoose on this day, although admittedly that took place on the same day and I was hella-drunk, but at the top of my game.

Sometimes I don't even have to plan anything on that day; it's like the universe just picks me up and throws me in the middle of Ohio and I look at the date and go "Oh, well there you go".

That is to say it is my birthday today.

I've never had or wanted a party. I've never expected praise, good will, gifts or even acknowledgement for the act of not dying for a year, or's this perverse self-idolatry thing I can't seem to wrap my brain around so I'd just as well ignore it. Normally, I'm even slightly offended by it. Actually, my sister has always been kind enough to celebrate it for me, toasts for me and all without me being there, so I've never been obligated to my family to like involve them with it because they seem to make good acknowledging they like me not being dead in their own constant ways. So it has never been an issue even. My Birthday; is the fantastic and all-consuming non-issue of my life. Which is great and exactly how I like it...

...except this year.

A month of bedrest is sooooooo boring. I'm going stir-crazy, like completely whacked out, sober, stable, utterly dull and this completely UN-me sort of crazy. And my pain-killers have been lessened so I can't even get stoned, how sad.

So, I'm posting, to say, it's my birthday today! Entertain me! Spoil me! [<--See; UN-ME] God please, distract me! And I'd lay even money that I will never feel this way here's your window to get it in there without me smacking you upside the head. ^_^

ADDS1: this is totally [ profile] otemen and [ profile] akickinthehead's fault, because they both got me unique, random and nifty things which made me feel all 'loved' and stuff. Curse them!

ADDS2: Wikipedia say the Beatles broke up on my birthday. See, no good can come of this...

ADDS3: I was supposed to get a tattoo today... instead I am staying up late making "To-Do Lists" in my head T_T

2005-Lunacon )

Addendum: With regards to the 10th;
To [ profile] ali_wildgoose & [ profile] cassandraclaire; I wish the need hadn't risen to smack your boy's upside the head. No hard feeling, right?
To [ profile] emsariel & [ profile] tromboneborges; I am sorry ... that I didn't wear my gloves, although [ profile] jlh was amused at hearing someone[s] get 'cuffed' so soundly. Bygones?

Congratulations! You're 116 proof, with specific scores in beer (60) , wine (83), and liquor (86).

Screw all that namby-pamby chick stuff, you're going straight for the
bottle and a shot glass! It'll take more than a few shots of Wild
Turkey or 99 Bananas before you start seeing pink elephants. You know
how to handle your alcohol, and yourself at parties.
