wedding 101

stolen from [livejournal.com profile] authoressnebula, cause i could.

mememememeeee )

Been horribly busy. between working, drawing, trying to be semi-social and then organizing as much as i can for a wedding...i have no life.
which, btw, i don't care what anyone says, planning a wedding is a veritable nightmare if you haven't been dreaming of it since birth. srsly. i had no plans, nothing in mind, no image of what it was all supposed to look like when that life altering day would come and everything would just fall into place. pffft. bullshit. its hard.
i am going to be ECSTATIC when i can just BE married and all of this can be done. did you know the average wedding costs 27k? THAT'S AVERAGE. WHERE ARE PEOPLE GETTING THIS MONEY.

on the plus side, the design aspect of it is rather fun, but well, saw that coming since i have an affinity for design. that and so far there have been plenty of people around to keep me sane. so far so good. the wedding itself will be on March 25 of next year, so who knows what'll happen between now and then. at this point, if i don't kill my mother (or myself) before this is all over, i'll consider it win/win. possibly.
oatmeal_queen: (spn - cas lookin tired)
I went soul searching yesterday but all I found was a missing pair of socks. Which is ok, I guess, but it would have been more helpful to find the tv remote instead. i swear it got sucked into a black hole somewhere between my bed and my desk (about three feet).

Nothing too interesting going on, but my brother scolded me for not updating so that he knows for sure that i'm not deadand can't have my stuff. he's so sweet, lol X)
speaking of the sasquatch tho, he now has in possession the wedding ring he's gonna propose with to his number one fan this weekend. (and holy hell what a rock) this should be interesting X) as happy as i am for him (AND I AM, JAMES) i still can't help the lingering painful thought in my head that my baby brother is gonna get married. i'll wave the flag of encouragement no matter what, but i still bristle regardless. that's MY bro, cheerleader. handle with care. :F

Otherwise, been working steadily on the commish stuff now that the go ahead was given to do color. It reminds me why i never do commissions tho x.x cause holy hell, i spent ALL OF YESTERDAY (when i wasn't working) just trying to fix ONE of them cause it was giving me such a hard time. geezus that was annoying. and it was the Castiel one too. figures. you'd think i'd never drawn a damn angel before. i was FINALLY able to adjust it enough that it looks good, but man...snjv@alwk!jefaqf. i wouldn't be freaking out about these so much if i didn't know they were going to be printed/sold. gawd. the less i think about that fact the better x.x
so now it's four down, seven to go ^^;
i've been asked once again about travel info and it's driving me bonkers cause i'd love to just get a YES or NO about the UK trip. *__* aarrrggghh. tell meeeeee. *shakes fist* cause my plans for May will be a whole hell of a lot different depending on that answer.
*sigh* this is why i hate planning things.
but i want to go so badly too, if just to go. moreso for the country than the con, but one is just the plus of the other. :3


in other news,
[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar's mama put in the checks we gave her for the grand canyon trip next year, so now i have no other choice X) which is both frightening and awesome cause it's exciting as hell despite the fact that i'm gonna be POOR. omg. i may change my mind on this commission thing afterall x.x
But rafting down the Colorado river for two weeks? so gonna be worth it.

this may seem like a lot going on, but it's cleverly disguised X)
when i get finished with these commission pieces, i swear i am pulling out my dust covered markers and damn well using them. no more excuses.
at this point, i'm generally cranky and busy, but i'm ok. :) and i can work with that.
oatmeal_queen: (spn - dean snore)
i am so utterly exhausted x.x

Went to hagerstown yesterday because my mother asked me to. Got to see family and a few good friends and that was all i needed to really pull my birthday into a nice close. my little bro wasn't there, but i'll see him on Moving Day. my older brother went out and bought my birthday gift ten minutes before he came over. he thinks i don't know, lol. X) oh well, he seemed in decent enough spirits so i was happy to see him. i made him laugh too, which was nice to hear. (just had to weed through all the other horrendously embarrassing things he spurted out and then we're all good)

so i went there and came back same day, followed up with sunday (today) for an absolute, no excuses packing day.

i have bruises EVERYWHERE.

not kidding, i checked. nice big colorful bruises on my arms, legs, torso, NECK (can't figure that one out) some pretty ones on my hands...lordy. and i'm aching, and my back hurts and my knees hurt and i feel so amazingly fantastic because i DID SOMETHING. i've spent the last four or five months being a great big fucking lump and i'm paying for it triumphantly but it feels so great. that gives me hope for pushing myself back into some kind of physical exercise soon because man do i need it. this sitting around and doing nothing crap is draining and stupid. i should have been off my ass ages ago.
man do i hurt tho, haha. i'm gonna sleep well tonight.

half my life was put into boxes today. i have three more days to finish off the rest. the kitchen is gonna be the biggest bitch of all, i think.

We leave for Ohayocon on thursday and come back monday. Moving Day is tuesday x.x i'm INSANE.
still, all in all, today was an excellent day.
i'm gonna miss this, the here and now and the people in it. it's not like they're going al that far away, but i'm gonna miss it anyway. and i'm glad i do.
i think i filled my packing quotient for the day tho. this break i deserve X)
oatmeal_queen: (fma - loud motherfucker)
Birthday was ftw. I had an awesome time in NYC (as we traveled across most of it in 2 degree weather, holy crap) and generally enjoyed myself :3
it was srsly freezing though, i couldn't believe that temperature. my jaw froze. i mean, literally, i was slurring my words because of the wind, and that's, like, one of the first signs of hypothermia isn't it? O__o gawd.
i was, however, happy to continue my wishful tradition of seeing snow on my birthday. and despite how gross jersey is (no offense, all my jersey friends <3) there was a new enough layer of white fluffy snow left for my enjoyment before the air blackened it up.
([livejournal.com profile] sunseenli! i'm sorry i missed you! i tried calling and emailing you, but i think some wires got crossed somewhere :[ )

Another bday bites the dust X) good riddance. I'll celebrate ifwhen I'm sixty.

Otherwise, been trying to kick my ass into gear packing and all around psyching myself up for the move. Am both really looking forward to it, and really not. Not that moving has ever been a problem for me, but you end up with ties to certain things that can be hard to let go of.
My kitty is one of them ;_; gawd, that's gonna be so hard.
E, you SAP.

Went and saw 'My Bloody Valentine 3-D' with [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia and LOVED every bit of it. it was cheesy and gross and dumb and gross and had PORN IN 3D and was fanfriggentastic. I was laughing most of the way through the movie. which got me some weird looks, but you know what? that movie deserves to be laughed at. campy slasher fic ftw.
that, and i'll gladly take me some more jensen in 3-D. omnomnom.

Mom wants me to come home this weekend cause of the birthday stuff. which basically means i come home and sit there with a last minute cake while she snuggles with her boytoy. funtimes. *mmm, boxcake* i'm pretty resigned at this point to limit it to only a day tho with the excuse of packing. (which really isn't an excuse, dumbass) we'll see how that plays out -.-

Ohayhocon is in two weeks (krist) and i still gotta get my damn shoes fixed and figure out what all i need to yank together at the last minute. we won't have an AA table for this one tho, so thankfully no last minute arts to do. which is good, cause i haven't been able to draw in weeks ;.; still crocheting though. wtf. i need to learn to do something more than scarves...

lord knows my muse and i are not on speaking terms right now.

*curls up in a warm hoody and munches on mac&cheese*
oatmeal_queen: (icon ceases to be)
Frog Test
that totally boosted my ego. i am officially smarter than a chinese second grader bitches X3

the week is slowly getting better. work is still painfully boring, but i'm not about to complain when i still have a good job, so i'll get over it. otherwise, been keeping myself busy as the crochet queen and annoying the crap out of our cats cause they get whomped if they touch my yarn D:<
i know, i know. i'm such an old lady. complete with smacking at the cats. lol.

the doc today told me i was looking loads better than i had the week before and that it was an incredibly noticeable improvement. i told her to wait til after i had moved. then i'll be sparkling. x.x

i doodled the other day while i was getting my hair done. oh! which reminds me, pics were demanded so here's what i did: E!pictiem! i was going for red, but it ended up just short and burgandy. i love it regardless ^^ it's offa my neck and darker. win/win.

friday is my birthday and C is taking me to NYC just for the hell of it. I'm so excited, I can't wait to be back up there.
my days were confirmed off from work for ohayocon, so i'll be there too.
plus all the moving of stuffs coming up here quick.

busy busy january. that's a new one.

been getting back in touch with all of the old friends i'd -lost- touch with, and am enjoying it immensely. i feel bad that i've been such a bad friend, but it's wonderful to hear that everyone's still around and doing ok. i even chatted with my sister today. :O she's living in missouri and i didn't even know that. gawd. >.<
i still miss my lil bro. regardless that i just saw him last month.

anywho, just updating for the sake of it. i'm gonna get back to my tea and listening to Sting. silence, all of you, that man's voice is beautomous and no ones gonna tell me otherwise u.u

no worries.
oatmeal_queen: (whoah there no gun)
So i'm feeling less like a lump lately.
but still have been very quick to get both irritated and angry, so i'm not out of the craptasticness yet. i'd apologize, but meh. i'll work through it. just don't count on a lot of conversations that don't end in 'ok enough, please piss off.'
it's just one of those weeks.
or months, depending on how things go with The Move and various other responsibilities i'd prefer to ignore. i'm grumpy and that's ok, cause its gotta work its way through my system eventually.

on the plus side, i've gotten myself back into some art, and have been happy to play with my new awesome laptop and my upgraded to UBER pc. Cs3 for the win. i love this fricken program. not only that, but it came with after effects and flash, which i haven't played with in years. if i'm bored enough, i may just fiddle :3
not that boredom has been an issue at all.
i was also lucky enough to a small, copic airbrush kit that i've been both itching to try and terrified of making some unholy mess.
the laptop is adorable tho, i love it. it's one of those that has a screen that flips around to become a tablet. i can even draw with my finger if i want :3 i've named him Sammy <3 *nerd*

oh, speaking of nerd. the latest SPN spoiler crisis is amusingly irritating enough for me to put out the effort to poke fun at the fandom once again. (not that i really need a reason) i was chatting with M about it at work today.
cut for spoiler amusement, but cut nonetheless )

it's a good thing fandom is around, really. definitely a decent reminder that i'm really not as crazy and uptight as i think i might be.

yuck. early mornings suck on rainy days -.- I DEMAND SNOW.

heading up to NYC next weekend for my birthday ^___^ i love new york in the winter, so i'm really looking forward to it.

ugh, man.
this time of year can go to hell. srsly. i've about had it.
i tried, i really did, but no.
screw plans, i can't make anybody happy. not my family, not my friends, not ANYBODY. and i'm too damn sick right now to deal with the guilt.
this is why i hate phones. why being a hermit is so godforsakenly tempting and why i NEVER GO ANYWHERE. cause everytime i do? someone gets pissed. regardless. apparently i can't make decent choices without my mother holding my hand.
thanks universe. thanks bunches.
somebody wake me up when it's the end of january.
oatmeal_queen: (roy chew on head)


cause i needed a good chuckle.
oog. man. schedules are crazy and EVERY.ONE.WANTS.TO.SEE.ME.ALL.OF.A.SUDDEN.WTH.
when did i get so damned popular? x.x
and i'd totally be up for going out and just hanging with everyone if not for things being so crazy lately. so bear with me, humans. i am but a single (yet awesome) person who hates making plans. work with me here.
work is hectic, yet manageable. gonna be in charge of training for the next two weeks, so getting prepared has been kinda nerve wracking.
been drawing like a madwoman (when i have the time), but not enough coloring.
kat wants me this weekend, going camping next weeked with sako, family reunion the following one (without my brothers tho. WOE.) and then...something something something i should write these things down.
peaceful sleep is for the weak.
my next planned vacation will be a scheduled week long coma methinks. i'll be traveling first class, of course.
guh, why can't i lose weight when i'm stressed like normal crazy people? XP
oatmeal_queen: (Default)
I am no offically 3/4 of the way through the last Harry Potter, courtesy of a friend of mine who let me borrow it for the week.

so far so good, but da-mn. i've lost track of the death count. yeeeesh. no spoilers will be here tho, cause someone did that to me and it kinda sucked -.- i'll just be happy when i'm through it and i can go back to not being hindered by the internet.

i MUST see the simpsons movie, omg. if anything? for the spider pig. cause i seriously could not stop giggling when i saw that XD i <3 u homer.
i'm also kinda hoping for a couple other movies i haven't gotten to see yet, such as Live free or Die Hard, Chuck and Larry, Hairspray, Ocean's 13, hell, i wouldn't even mind seeing Fantastic Four silver surfer :\ just haven't had the time or company. oh what a sad movie go-er i've become! woe!

tho i've seen transformers 4 times, so there goes my argument X)

Gonna be busier than I've planned for recently, especially since my poor mother is now living on her own with the recent move of both my younger brother and my half-sister :( i know she's gonna be ok and all, but i still can't help but feel bad and wish she was closer. This is kinda the age she expected to sit around and be an old fart with dad...which really can't happen now.
i swear the woman needs to go on a date or something. it's not like she looks her age.

So i've got my mother to see and go to Phantom of the Opera with at the Kennedy Center -sometime- in the next two weeks.
Got Bellypalooza with Kat and Sako(?) coming up on August 4th
and i'm sure there are other things i'm forgetting -.-

i wanna cosplay my lolita again.
that, and i'd love to do more costumes X) there aren't many characters i can find that suit me without people gouging their eyes out, but there may still be some choices out there to play with X3
i'm such a nerd. <3

ugh, i think one of the cats got up on my pillow last night, cause man could i not sleep with my EYES SWELLING SHUT. damn allergies.

if i wasn't so damn tired right now, i'd be working. my kingdom for an expresso x.x
