So I finished it

I finished Twilight, and while it was an enjoyable enough read, I'm not finding myself as sucked into it as I thought I would be. Probably because I've had so much RL crap going on that I would start reading and find myself going "OMFG BELLA YOU ARE SEVENTEEN GET SOME PERSPECTIVE." Which likely means I am thisclose to putting a rocking chair on my porch and telling those damn kids to get off my lawn.

There is, however, one thing I would like to get off my chest, and that is Collapse )

Anyway, I would now like to direct your attention to Growing Up Cullen, because it is hilarious and even after reading the book I can still imagine Edward pressing flowers in his room. ANGRILY.

balcarin: and esme would be like WHY DON'T YOU GO TRY OUT THAT NEW POTTERY WHEEL I BOUGHT?
welurklate: and that's how they have like 80 bowls they'll never use


It's been a while since I checked out fst, so I figured I'd browse through there a bit, and there's a couple of neat ones up for this month's theme that I thought I'd share. It's a locked comm, so you have to join to see these, but I'm pretty sure membership is open so give it a go (and make a couple yourself-they're addicting!)

Runaways: I liked the descriptions in this one, plus there's a bunch of Beatles songs. XD

Powerpuff Girls: GIRLBANDS AHOY.

The Daily Show: I'm not entirely sure what's going on here, but it's HILARIOUS.


So everyone on my flist is all up on this Twilight business (bizness?), so here's a link that you all may enjoy. Or loathe. Via cleolinda:

Hi, I am Edward and I am a vampire.

All the friendspage glee didn't get me all that interested, but by god the third panel of that comic did. And now I think I need to start reading the books. Dammit.

In other news: I lose at slang. XD

You can take the girl out of the theater...

My mom's watching "Dancing With The Stars", and I guess they've been having kids on doing ballroom dancing, throughout the season. It's pretty cute-there was one team (it feels weird to call young kids a "couple", so team it is) that couldn't have been more then 8 or 9 that did the samba to "Istanbul was Constantinople", and I was all "squee!" and then I came back out into the dining room.

And then I hear the opening strains of "Phantom of the Opera", and after I'd listened long enough to make sure it wasn't just a commercial or something, I went running back into my mom's room.

Mom: **Is already smirking at me**

Me: You were just counting down the seconds until I made it back in here, weren't you?

Mom: I kind of figured you'd be in to see this one.

I'm so predictable.
No soup for you!

A pox on IE

Y'know, it used to be that I could code a layout that looked totally fine in IE and all screwy in Firefox and now it is THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

Which I suppose is something of an advancement in skills, but is still incredibly frustrating.

I just finished the comp for my fourth design, ever. Still waiting for it to sink in that I do this for a living now.

In closing: I can haz Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men now plz?

I don't know how familiar any of y'all are with Viva la Bam, but there is this one episode where Bam & co. have moved into some new digs, and his mom's decorated the place, and Bam and Ryan Dunn were out riding ATVs in the mud and they come in and get scolded for tracking mud onto a new rug, which of course prompts Dunn to start rolling his mud-coated self around on the rug while April's screaming "Is he kidding?! IS HE KIDDING?!?!"

My point being that this is how I've felt for the last two weeks, with this ginormous project being Ryan Dunn covered in mud and rolling all over the expensive rug that is my life. I AM DREAMING IN CSS. That can't be healthy.

Add to that tax season (I got my taxes in the mail at 5:35pm on the 15th, because the IRS kept rejecting what I filed online), and the divorce paperwork (we have to get it all filed tomorrow or the court date has to be rescheduled).

Speaking of the divorce...getting married cost $50 total for the wedding (at the courthouse, not counting the tres chic maternity dress I bought to get married in) and the marriage license, and there was only one piece of paper involved. Dissolution of marriage: $300 to file plus $120 for the four hour parenting workshop we were required to take, 10 multi-page documents to be filled out, notarized and filed, and the stress of having to trust my ex to be responsible for something that has a deadline and does not involve a guild and a level 72 paladin.

It should be harder to GET married than it is to get NOT married.

Is it any wonder I broke out in hives last weekend?

And now, something that makes me happy: CHARLIE THE UNICORN 2. DASRIGHT. "There's no stopping the vortex, Charlie!"

If you haven't seen the first one, I highly recommend it. Just make sure you watch all the way to the end.
