You Are 96% North Jersey

You are totally North Jersey! You really know the area and have Jersey pride. Chances are you just got back from being down the shore! Unless you're taking this test in wintertime in which case you just got back from Christmas shopping in Paramus. Unless it's Sunday, in which case... Hey how come I didn't see you in church today? =P

from the creators of white wedding comes...white christmas [28 Nov 2006|03:21pm]

It's almost December! Here's a little pick me up from Mr. Billy Idol himself.

It's tremendously cringe-worthy, but I really want to know why he looks the exact same as...ever. His perpetual sexiness is really a mystery of nature.

New icon!

I decided that sleep was not needed tonight. Well, I didn't so much decide as I looked out the window and the sun was out. Whoops.

Things have been all over the place, so much so that I'm too overwhelmed to sit down and update, I guess. 

I watched some old episodes of Rocko's Modern Life on YouTube today. (Hmmm...maybe that's why I didn't get my Philosophy assignment done till...say...5.30 am?) Did you know that Norbert the turtle's last name was Shellbach?! Can you say  genius? Because I can. And it's pronounced Nickelodeon. 

Oh, I'm working a J.Crew now. Yeah, I know, shut up. It's good money, the people are nice, I get a discount on all things cashmere, and I'm working in New York City. Did I mention the cashmere? 

Grades are going ok so far, surprisingly. It seems the less effort and thought I put into my homework, the better my grades get. Then again, that's probably not true and it's going to bite me hard in the ass at the end of the semester. My classes are all pretty great though, as far as what I'm learning. I have a few great teachers...except for Chemistry which is just...well...let's just say I'm not very science minded. History, Critical Writing, and Philosophy are all very interesting, and I'm excited to be learning. Which is the whole point of higher education, in my opinion.

The Fordham University Knitters and Crocheters (FUKC) meet for the first time this Tuesday! I printed my flyers (20 dollars for copies at Staples!!!) and hung most of them yesterday. I hope it goes ok, that people come, that I have enough supplies. Spreading the wooly goodness.

What else? I'm pretty gross, my room is messy, I'm not feeling too wonderful all around. But I'm trying to avoid thinking about it. Mainly by procrastinating like a fiend and watching cartoons on YouTube. 

Time for a shower and then some reading and then actually getting to my German class on time...which is rare.

Hey, wow, look at that. It's 5:40 in the morning and I'm still awake. HAHAHAHAHA. 

Definitely should have done this History paper earlier...but you know, those Puritan/Indian relations are just so exciting that I wanted to save it up for the last minute. Because it's just that much fun.


At least it's a rough draft.


ughhh.

Guten Tag, everybody.

I haven't updated in a while, probably because a lot has been happening and I'm too lazy to figure out what to say. The first few weeks of school have gone well, so far as making friends and stuff. I've meet some great girls that I really like hanging out with, and that has been a huge help. Met some not so great people, but that's ok too. 

Classes are pretty stressful, which is my own fault- I'm leaving everything to the last minute. It's so hard to just settle down and work, and I'm having a hard time getting myself to do anything productive. I mean, shit gets done, but it's half-assed and I know I could do better. It's bothering me, because I'm not usually like this. Had my first German test today and I didn't study NEARLY as much as I could have. It wasn't terribly hard, but still...I just feel guilty is all.

This past Friday I went to Brooklyn to see Anne, who I havn't seen in a couple years. She saw me by chance a week or two ago in the Lower West Side- huge fucking city, and we're in the same place at the same time. It was pretty incredible. I had a BLAST at her very hip apartment in Brooklyn. We had Cosmos and played Sex and the City trivia, which I sucked at beacuse...well...I don't watch S&TC. But I got a good buzz, met some cool people, and managed to get back to the Bronx slightly drunk. Hurray for me!

Been going into the city a lot, pretty much every weekend, which I love. I'm starting to really get the hang of the subway, knowing where things are, the neighborhoods and streets. It feels almost normal, but not quite. There's always that huge mess in the back of my head reminding me of who I am and where I've been, and it stops me from ever feeling like I belong where I am at that very moment. Regardless, I'm in love with New York City like never before.

I did the Responsorial Psalm at Sunday mass this past week- my parents listened on the radio and people said I did well, but I don't know. The other underclassmen in the choir are SO good, they've all had voice lessons, and I feel like a Grade A douchebag getting up there and acting like I know what I'm doing.

Still knitting, and can't wait for Rhinebeck. :D


Jess and I went to see Depeche Mode Live In Milan last night in New Rochelle, just a short train ride away from Fordham. We had a BLAST! We met some other fans (one kinda creepy dude and two very nice women who have seen them a million times and I was very very jealous), danced in our seats, DID THE NLMDA ARM WAVE, and sang very loudly all the way back to the train station. <33333

This delightful evening meant I had Depeche on the brain today, and I doodled this during Chemistry this morning. Heh heh, reminds me of high school.

Oh, and I'm getting sick. BLERGHHH. Sore throat and stuffy nose and headache and just eeyech.

Ok, I have laundry. And homework. I must workworkworkworkwork.

Greetings from Fordham University!

Well, here's my first update from my cozy single room in the Bronx, New York City. First week has gone ok. I could write a bunch of shit about moving in, classes, whatever, but it's nothing people haven't heard/experienced so nevermind. I'll just say that I like my classes, I have a shitload of homework I'm already putting off doing, and I've met some cool people. It's still hard for me to talk to people and trust that they don't secretly (or not so secretly) think I'm the most nausea-inducing piece of walking human vile ever spewed upon God's good earth, but I think that with time, I'll be more comfortable. Most friendships start out with that kind of nervousness and hesitancy, and this is the hardest part. And it's only been a week anyways.

I finally got my internet access fixed yesterday, which was a relief. FINALLY I can waste time again!

Hmm. Not too much to say except that I'm here. Yay! Now to go read all that American History, and memorize German numbers, and write my Philosphy summary....uughh. There better be a party tonight so I can drink and watch people have fun.

Hello everybody.

Well, two more days till I make my way up to the boogie-down Bronx to start (again haha) at Fordham. I guess I'm having all the sterotypical before-college feelings...I'm definitely really looking forward to it, expecially after this year, but when I really get time to sit and think about it and imagine myself there...yikes! The independence doesn't bother me, nor does the prospect of a full course load...if anything my brain needs an academic shock treatment. It's the whole fact that I'm a total gross idiot desperate for a friend. I could write a whole lot about that, but...I won't haha, because it's just stupid shit that I keep telling myself over and over. I hope people like me, because I can't imagine being my friend, as self-centered as that sounds.

Anyway, I like this band a lot. I havn't been listening to a lot of new music (as in...music that has recently come out) but their song was on a free iTunes Facebook playlist. I tend to shy away from anything labeled "indie rock" because I'm afraid I won't like it or understand it, which means there's something horrible wrong with me. But these guys are pretty good! It was a big step for me to admit that, no, I don't like indie rock. I have no confidence in my tastes at all.

Tense week. The hospital my sister just got a job at after graduating nursing school...well, the nurses went on strike. So she can't work. She has no money. And my brother can't find a job at all. And my dad hates his job. And my mom is flipping out over everything. And since I'm the one that lives at home...I deal with it. So we've been pissing each other off a lot. 

Today wasn't so bad, but I can tell she's pretty upset over everything. Plus everything with going back to school has had some glitch. I have to fill out some INSANE form to renew my scholarship, which NOBODY told us about. I have to move in late Sunday since I'm not a "technical" incoming Freshman. The tution is a lot more than we thought because my scholarship got fucked up and they had to give me the single room. Not fair, in my opinion, since I went on a fucking medical leave and had no choice in where they put me. And t's not like I flunked out...they MADE me leave, can't they just renew the scholarship since I didn't even complete my first semester? Seriously now people, give me a fucking break.

So basically, I just want to go AUUUGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On a happy note, Kristin and Anne and the Modern Yarn ladies had a little "going away party" Stitch n' Bitch for me last week! A total surprise, and a I was really touched! No one's ever done anything like that for me before. Thank you MY! Best yarn store in the world, I speak the truth. I've met so many wonderful women, all ages, careers, etc. and they became my friends. *~tear~* 

In other knitting news, I finished two pairs of Fetching from Knitty (one for my sister, one silvery-gray beaded pair for me) and am just about done with a pair of Knucks, also from Knitty. All that's left is the embroidery on the seond glove. Other than that, I'm starting my Knitted Bodice top when I get my KnitPicks needle set for my birthday, and I'll probably start a pair of socks either tonight or tomorrow. Oh, and I want to make everything in the new Vogue Knitting.

Ok, I'm done. Good night ladies and gentlemen.

funny fanfic summaries [13 Aug 2006|03:53pm]
[ mood | grumpy ]

Thought I'd resurect this little feature, since I could use a laugh. They're all Lord of the Rings RPS-related fanfiction summaries. All from the same site, sadly. I guess this is in relation to my AIM conversation with squeeze_box about our shame regarding our past lives as fanfic girlies.




What happens when Sean and Viggo survive a global apocalyptic mutating virus… (they have gay sex, DUH)

Sean is happy to have a "free" weekend. But is it really "free"??? What would happen if there will be a visitor?? (omg?? whats gonna happen if there will be??? question mark??)

David and Craig have a misunderstanding and David chases Craig from Los Angeles to New York to explain. (I have this image in my head of Craig Parker literally chasing David Wenham across the country on foot)

A disastrous trip to Mexico unearths secrets for which no one is fully prepared. (I want to make a diarrhea joke, but I won't)

Orlando is a wonderful ray of sunshine and Karl is a dark cloud. Everyone thinks this match would never last but when an unexpected illness falls on Orli everyone sees just how strong their love is. (Yes, and when rays of sunshine meet rain clouds, big happy gay rainbows pour out of the sky!)

Viggo's alone and depressed. Orlando comes home to try and make it better. Warning-some self-abuse. (Emofic! Who knew Orlando had the maturity of a 13 year old girl with scene hair?)

Sean’s third wife has left him. He needs someone else sadder than him to make it all seem right. (Maybe Orlando can come over.)

AND FINALLY.

Orlando dreams of Olympic gold. After Salt Lake he still has four more years before the Torino games. Will he use them? (No comment needed...the title of this gem is "Golden Dreams".)

wow. [13 Aug 2006|12:14am]
[ mood | cranky ]

had a weird day in that i was extremely on edge...well, more than usual. restless, but tired, with noone to call. just a long day.


oh, and i had a "crazy" moment. i'm not just telling this little story to sound silly, or quirky, or cute, it's just a strange thing i noticed. i have conversations in my head, by myself, with people that don't really exist. kind of like daydreams, but...different. daydreams are fantastic adventures, or perfect futures, but this was more like a memory that never happened, or that hasn't happened yet. i was by myself, letting out JS's dog (i'm dog-sitting for the weekend), just sitting in her backyard having a conversation with a nice guy on a park bench in new york city. i made a joke and he chuckled and i laughed too. no, really, i laughed...but actually i was by myself, laughing at my own joke. that was made in a conversation completely in my imagination. and in that moment...i realized that i'm kinda lonely.


i'm trying to remember what i fake said to my fake nice guy on the park bench...hmm...it'll come to me. i like meeting people like that, who will talk to you and it's not scary or uncomfortable. you leave giddy and smiling, not because you're attracted to them physically or completely in love but because for a couple minutes you were able to have a real conversation and connect with someone, and it's so special because they know nothing about you, you know nothing about them, and it's just so genuine and pure and you feel wanted and worthwhile. then you leave and you may not see them again, but it's ok because when you're feeling really alone, you can look back and remember that it seemed like maybe someone kind of liked you for a couple minutes.


god, what did i fake say in my head? i swear i smiled and laughed and looked over and realized i was alone. what were we talking about...i was knitting (in my imaginary scene, not actually...i was sitting on a swing while the dog ran around)...oh! haha now i remember. oh, i'm such a character.


that was my crazy moment. and it happens a lot, actually. i'll be walking and i'll realize that my lips or my hands are moving, or i'm making a face. gah!



ps i need to change my layout. i like this one but i'm getting bored...

[edit] changed the layout. happysunshine.

Well, I was going to wait until my knitting photos were ready before updating, but oh well. They're coming, I swear. I know you're all jonseing for some hot Jaywalker action, and I will not disappoint.

Been busy some days, and a total lazy ass the others. Last week was pretty eventful...I worked the Fiber Arts camp at Modern Yarn, two early stock days, and house sat for Jessica all week. The house sitting was a total blessing, because she has a sweet pool and we had an insane heat wave last week. Therefore, many an evening was spent playing pool volleyball with my sister, brother, and their significant others. So I was the cool little sister with a pool for a week.

The week also consisted to me going to the beach on Monday and not even swimming because I felt like a digusting piece of shit, for lack of a better description. What else is new? I'm an embarrassment to the human race, I really am ashamed to be alive sometimes.

I got my first flat tire on Thursday. Poor Cindy! (that's my car...Cindy Civic)

I've started a new knitting project...a little throw pillow to practice my less-than-expert intarsia skills. The design is a surprise. It's also embarrassing and geeky. 

Seriously, I've spent more money on yarn this past week or so than...than...than I need to, let's leave it at that. I've aquired some Socks that Rock thanks to my knitting buddy, Ina, ten balls of Cathay by Debbie Bliss for my Glampyre top, some Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran for another pair of Knitty's Fetching gloves, two skeins of Cascade for my pillow...oh dear god. My poor bank account. 

Plus, once I'm at school I'll be a subway ride from Purl Soho, which carries my sweet lover of a sock yarn, Koigu. Oh yeah. Mmhmm.

Oh, and I think I know what to do with those two skeins of Zephyr laceweight I bought at MDS&W...


ANYWAY.

I saw Little Miss Sunshine today. Hilarious, touching, very entertaining movie. It gets Katie's Seal of Approval.

I am really, really, really looking forward to going back to school. I registered for classes last Thursday which was an adventure because a 45 minute trip turned into a 2 hour crawl because there was a truck fire on the Cross Bronx Expressway. Goddamn heatwave and its truck -exploding powers. Regardless, my sister and I eventually made it to Fordham. I've decided to start a new language...German. I'm probably going to regret this, but I'm excited to start something new. 

I can't wait to have my little single room, and learn, and read, and maybe meet a new friend or two. This year off has been good for a lot of reasons, but I wouldn't have done it if I didn't have to. Things'll be different this time, though, because I'm not going and thinking "how long till I leave? how short can I make it?" but rather "I'm going to learn, get my degree, and live my life and see the world". I guess that's an improvement. I'm going with fewer expectations- I'm a lot more comfortable with the idea of myself as someone who, as hard as she tries, cannot have a good time at a crowded bar. Someone who can't be friends with everyone. I'd like to be that, but I tried it and ended up hating myself even more. Maybe this time being home has made me more comfortable with the idea of being...alone. I kind of treasure my nights knitting and listening to music. I mean, I like being with people sometimes...but I don't think I can handle the responsibility of having a ton of friends. It's so much easier to just be alone. Which makes me sad, but like I said, I'm used to it after being home from school for a year.

In other exciting, non-rambling news, I'm seeing TOOL in October!

Well thats all for now, folks.


(ps hi Liz, I miss you)

Hello all. Update coming soon, I promise. Katie, my sister-in-law (woah), is going to take some finished knit project pictures for me so I can make a totally geeky knitting post. Also, adventures concerning swimming pools, the Cross Bronx Expressway, and the usual self hating mumbo jumbo.

Ha, I'm so lazy. I definitely have time to update but that would require me to actually, you know, sit down and think for a couple minutes.

I got my Fordham housing assignment. I have a single, which is rare at FU, but I'm happy about it. It might get changed into a double, which is fine too. Alumni North. At least that's taken care of.

WHY AM I AWAKE?? I have work in 4 hours.

I've started to attempt to get my flabby ass in gear, so I've been (brisk) walking/jogging a good hour and a half to two hours every day. It's actually nice, gives me a chance to listen to some music and think, and every time I go I do a little better. I can run (or jog, whatever) farther than I could before, and that's a good feeling. In fact, when I went earlier today (or yesterday, technically) I had NIN on shuffle, and I was going to stop jogging and walk for a little bit and then a really good song came on and I took that as Trent's buffed-out spirit pushing me onward. Thank you, Trent, and tell your biceps I say hello!

Work has been going well. In a couple weeks I'll be working three jobs! The Gap, Jessica's design assistant, and Anne's assistant at the Modern Yarn fiber arts camp. The busier I am, the better, so no complaints.

My brother is getting married this weekend!!! I can hardly believe it...my big brother, Dave. We've always been close, and I'm very happy for him, but it hasn't really sunk in yet. I mean, he's been dating this girl for probably...eight years or so, so it won't really be different. Still...it's my big brother! Married! The wedding should be fun, there will be a ton of people there I haven't seen in a while. I just hope there are not too many "how's school?" "when are you going back" blahblahblah questions....which there will be so I'm just gonna shut the fuck up about it and deal with it when the time comes. It's selfish, but I'm more worried about how horrible I'm going to look in all those pictures than anything else. I wish I could just opt out of them...seriously, I don't think anybody would think "where's Dave's sister"? But that'd be pretty rude. Regardless, NOT looking forward to that. It's embarrassing. Ugh, I feel bad just thinking about it.

ANYHOO, have fallen behind a bit on the knitting, but I'm going to Stitch n' Bitch tomorrow night to work on that second Jaywalker (still) and my big black fuzzy merino winter scarf with the funky DM-inspired intarsia design. My first foray into the world of colorwork, and it looks ok, so I'm pleased. Hi Secret Pal! (I have the coolest SP ever).

What else?

Watched VH1 Classic Alternative tonight- highlight of my week, sadly enough. Some Bauhaus, Depeche Mode, Smithereens...funny Depeche moment! They showed a commercial that featured a little DM snippet and I said out loud "well why don't you fucking PLAY some Mode for chrissakes?! and as SOON as I said it, the show came back on, and it was the "trash lid on the pavement" sound from Behind The Wheel...I laughed and enjoyed Martin's accordion playing.

This is why I don't update...I end up writing a bunch of...crazyness!

Saw Emily earlier this week, which was the shiz, as usual. Liz, come home!

I really want to start a knitting group at Fordham. The Fordham University Knitters and Crocheters- F.U.K.C! Too perfect! I'm formulating some plans for it, and really want to put it together.

Ok, I really need to sleep.
