Some changes. I'm going to be living in the New Haven (or slightly West) vacinity. Any ideas on towns/complexes to live down there?

Apartment Questions
Has anyone every lived in the Middletown/Meriden vacinity? I'm looking at apartments around there and was curious if anyone had any good recommendations for towns/complexes in the region. I'm looking at Middletown, Meriden, Durham...you get the picture. Any help would be appreciated in my current epic quest to find a good apartment!

Does this question make me look fat?

::walks into the room, looks around at the dusy furniture. Starts brushing things off as clouds of dead skin and dirt fly into the air:: *cough, cough, cough* ::exits the room::

::a few minutes later returns with a leafblower and a gas mask. Dust flies through the air. As the dust settles everywhere, retreats from the room again::

::a few minutes more and this time enters with a flamethrower. The room and its contents including all dust are quickly vaporized and then systematically vaccuumed up and removed::

::brings in a single chair and sits down, removing gas mask::

Well...that was fun. So, let us have a little bit of a vote shall we? Should I start becoming an active member of the LJ community again or should I let this place get dusty again? Opinions?

Don't Break my Heart or I'll Cut You With It...or...Watch it or I'll Cut You With My Broken Heart...

The most wonderfully emo line(s) I have ever created. Now add Rachel's visual of me smashing my heart on a bar and trying to stab you with it...isn't it wonderful?

Oh...and since people haven't been updated on my life and someone got offended that I didn't tell them...I'm dating a nice girl named Rachel. Sadistic...but nice...If you really want to know more, you can ask. I've decided that I don't like spilling personal information without reason. Thank one of my "friends" for that.

Also, I've been stuck at a Ren Faire all weekend. Feel free to visit www.thescrf.com to find out about it, and I'll be there Friday and Sunday...maybe Saturday too. We'll see what happens.

I really don't have any other need though to update here, so ask questions and I'll answer them or you'll just have to wait until I feel like updating. Poor you...

My body hurts. I did about 5-6 hours of moving boxes around the house today. Progressively throughout the day I kept putting on my braces (two knee and one ankle by the end) and it wasn't unitl my hip started to do weird things (and I was stumbling a bit from lack of proper nutrition) that I stopped. A large chunk of progress was made though.

Dad came home from visiting my sister, and we had a pleasant little conversation. It looks like we might be buying a dryer tommorow to replace our old broken one. This does mean I'll have to somehow drag dryers up and down stairs...it'll be interesting and probably more painful than working today. In the process of shopping I'm going to buy a wireless extender to A) hopefully get better reception in my room and B) steal the neighbors internet if ours is flakey (for the record, they steal ours all the time too...I'm friends with them so I know). It does mean the skates are going to get pushed back, but I think I'm ok with that. The big reason to want to get them was to go be able to participate with biking in Vernon, but after seeing the trail that wont quite work. I'll have stilts to keep me in shape anyway...and Rocky.

In other news, I think I've fallen in love...with Guitar Hero. My urge to buy it goes up every day. Next week I should have sufficient cashflow for that dream, but we'll see. Also, for whatever reason my hopeless romantic seems to have survived being buried a live. I'm not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I've done my research next time someone tries to piss me off. Anyway, I'm going to find a way to occupy myself until I'm tired...maybe get some food...if our house wasn't out of milk...

Yes, I have done it! I have crashed my PS2!! Its not dead for good or anything, the graphics in FFX2 just got way too much and its memory got eaten up. There is a game setting that will prevent it in the future...its what I get though for trying to level SDSP (if you understood any of that, you just might be a dork).

I spend my day today working on tech stuff for a dance recital I help out with annually. It wetn rather well and was very easy. Tommorow though is the actual recital so it'll be fun to run around some more, but I think mostly I'll just be relaxing. Which reminds me, I need to find a book to bring...hmmm. I read the Crow comic I got a while ago, ti was rather good (Flesh and Blood). Maybe I'll find Dream Hunters and read that. I'm sure I'll find something to amuse myself.

Anyway, I should think about bed since I need to be fed and in Windsor by noon. I also need to bring tape and paper...can't forget (because someone else will).

Current Mood: I give you...dork

Oh my non-existent dieties...Here is me with tits. Damn I'm hot...(I'd so do/date me)


The sad part is...it actually made me sad thinking about the erased words. I'm such a loser (and even more so because I already subscribed to the Podcast...)...(man I like elipses).

Life is like...well I don't really know, I barely live it. Lets see...fun things first:

Rocky Horror is still looking for chorus members (transylvanians/phantoms). If anyone has a decent singing voice, decent dancing ability (nothing professional on either...but decent) and is skanky enough to be in RHS...talk to me. I'm not really going to actively recruit, because I have a fear in the back of my head that I don't feel like talking about in here. We have a new Magenta already, but I think it'll be fun to break her in...hehehe. Rehearsals are every Monday/Wednesday/Thursday and attendance at ALL rehearsals is expected (aka, minimal conflicts please...).

Second, if anyone is looking for a fun evening Stage Managing job, talk to me. A production of Grease needs an SM and I can't do it (because of a production of Peter Pan...go figure). It'll probably pay a few hundred, but I can't guarantee how much. The sooner you start the more money you can get probably. Its a high school level production, and should be an easy job just requires a lot of time (about three nights a week). It goes up in late July.

And not that that has been said, and the clock rolled over to the next day...I have adventure points which I am going to spend like the good addict I am.

Quick question: What is a reasonable price for recreational in-line skates? I've seen anywhere from $40 to $400. I'm currently thinking about $100 or so, but anyone with a bit more experience who has advice would be appreciated greatly. Thanks!

I think I have proved that I am a dork tonight. Not only am I reading LJs and very soon to play Kingdom of Loathing, but I am also reading Endless Nights AND power leveling characters in FFX2. All at the same time.

On another note, I have now gone and bought the supplies for making stilts, or at least enough to get them going. I'll need to fashion some straps and find some furniture foam which I'm sure is lying around the house somewhere. Then just need some meat paste...erm, powertools...and I'll have one small set (about 2 ft). If it works I'll drill up the second pieces of wood and maybe make some 4" legs (current goal is reusable everything that will just get interchanged). I wish I had my lacrosse pads that Mary stole a while back, but I think I'll survive a fall without them. I will probably go and buy wrist pads which will also serve the purpose of learning to roller blade eventually this summer. I'd rather fall on my elbows with the lacross pads, but I'll live until Mary gets back.

Other things of note...nope, nothing really. Tommorow I go back to cleaning. The goal is both garage spaces clean in two weeks...that and finish power leveling characters if X2. ^^ I love being a dork. Oh! Firefly with Heather sometime...that needs to get planned...yes...

All the losers are doing it...so I guess I'll be the first cool person to do it (please don't kill me, it was a joke!!)

Comment if you want me to answer these questions regarding you. However, if I do this for you, you mustpost the questions in your LiveJournal so that you can return the favor to me (and spread the love to everyone else).

The Questions:
1. I'll respond with something random about you.

2. I'll challenge you to try something.

3. I'll pick a colour that I associate with you.

4. I'll tell you something I like about you.

5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.

6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.

7. I'll ask you something I've always wanted to ask you.

What are you doing on August 12th and 19th?...at around, oh say...midnight? If you are reading this, then you will be sitting in Cheeney Hall for the Little Theater of Manchester's production of The Rocky Horror Show or else I might have to kill you...

I definitely just tried to end the underline html with /j instead of /u...that was weird, and that is all.

Today was generally enjoyable. I crunched numbers of Cystic Fibrosous for mom...none of the numbers came out to be what she wanted them to be. One source had all but one correct number, but it did not take into account any other sources which were all far wrong. Its a real mess. And then she just found the set of numbers from the 2006 compilation instead of the 2004 that had been used. Mom then questioned why they weren't using the updated numbers. I told her that they within a decent confidence interval I'm sure, but I can't pull data out of my ass (ok, I didn't say that exactly, but it was implied).

I also got to see Ms. Sky and GrayLight. That made me very happy to see long lost friends. I conversed with GL about nerd/trendy/homosexual fashion in Old Navy and by the end of the day had MS saying that she hated me (for a good reason...let us just say she will be thinking of me as she sits at her desk all day tommorow...hopefully in a good way, or at least a plotting my demise kinda way). I hope I get to see them again soon, and my other long lost friends. It would be quite enjoyable indeed.

Memes are Infinitely better then real updates...
memeCollapse )

Agenda: Compile Statistics on C.F. for my mom (aka me sitting in a Starbucks/Barnes and Noble again...this time with a computer though!!) as well as getting Excel on her computer to do the calculations for me. Maybe getting to see Sky/Gray Light? I misses them...amongst other people of course...many of you people who should have hot beverages with me sometime and chat...ah well.

In other news: Chris Ryan (director of Rocky Horror) is trying to get me to audition for his production of RHS in August. I have less then 48 hours to decide if I feel like doing it...I think I'd need to cut my hair...

Haha, I'm girlier then mrs_sky...I guess this means our porno just got more interesting...(hypothetically speaking of course...seriously...don't look at me like that, I might bite your face off...you've been warned...)

You scored as Female. Being mostly female by thought, is even though (still) considered inferior to masculinity in Western culture, a good thing in many ways:It means that you are more creative, and sensitive towards your environment, enabling you to express yourself freely and multitask.










Should you be MALE or FEMALE?*

Ich hast warm wetter...
It is muggy and warm, and it is only going to get worse. Boy do I dislike summer...a lot. Well as a temporary distraction, a fun quizzy thingy swiped from weyakin who stole it from kiss_me_suicide who stole it from...well I really am not sure. You're all smart, you figure it out. ^^

You scored as Romantic Goth. You are a romantic goth, better known as a tradtional goth. You are probably quickly identified as a goth by outsiders. Black lace, bats, and moonlit cemetaries are just a few of your favorite things.

Music SurveyCollapse )

less then 12 hours until the final battle begins...I'm going to watch some Izzard and pretend I can fall asleep this early so I can get up at 6 am and take a shower so I wont smell for Kat or for Lisa if I am indeed going to see her and this is a very long sentence with very little punctuation but I really am enjoying noticing this and continuing to write without adding any in except for the bit right now.

Current Mood: Dancing Skeleton!..or nervous.

Today was rather boring. I studied, helped set up a ren faire and take it down afterwords...and have random unexplainable bruises on my arm...that really look like intimacy gone wrong on some levels.
Read more...Collapse )

Ok, now to think about bed since I'm setting my alarm at 7:00 am or so...need to start training getting up at 7:00 at the latest, 6:00 preferable for Thursday (unless I take a shower the night before...stinky is not good for examinations).

It has been a long day. And now I am sitting in front of my computer, am rather depressed, and have to be up in the morning. Putting all that aside though, the day or at least what I feel like talking about:

I went to Megan's graduation party today. I got to meet her mom who is taking FM with us as well as see Shelley and folks. I also *gasp* had a smirnoff grape thingy. It was ok, but not really very exciting. Megan's cool neighbor came over wearing pants from West Germany that were lamb skin...they were REALLY pretty. He also brought some good white wine, but I left before getting to try any.

Afterwords I went to pick up Lisa and hang out with her and Chris. It was very interesting. Her mom came and picked her up though, so Chris and I went on elsewhere. We bought some airsoft guns and played around with them at the Olson's. It was ok. They aren't really my cup of tea though. Guns in generally don't do it for me. I'll need to get them to boffer with me next weekend though.

Instead of sitting here depressed though, I'm going to head off to bed. Ask in private and there is a slim chance I'll talk...but probably not.

Tommorow's Agenda:

Help mom set up tent for ren faire in Agawam...you all should go.
Manchester to study/whatever.
Back eventually to help pack up tent.
Then probably sitting in my room...doing nothing productive I'm sure.

Current Mood: Don't ask, Don't tell

This is the thing from earlier. Look back if you want to find out the actual rules...they still apply.

1. Why do you like being tortured? Well actually I was listening to a song at the time with the line "torture me gently" in it which was a bit of inspiration. Anyway, I think there is something playful about it, and there is certianly a level of trust that goes into it. Besides, its fun ::evil grin::

2. Are you afraid of becoming a yuppie? Yes, to be quite honest. I've known many actuaries just randomly met mostly. A lot of them are very normal people, even more are very bland normal people. I hope that my excentric ways wont be stripped from me (like having to get my hair cut...though it is long and I just started thinking about that today...sad kinda...moving on)

3. What's your favorite pair of underwear and why? I have this little pair of black underwear...I guess I wore it....Thursday? It makes me feel good and sexy. They are really little and can't even contain in the slightest amount of arousal comfortably, but just the amount of...daring? sex? whatever?...makes them so much fun to wear. They have a whole in them though and are going to die soon...but there are some thongs I wanna get that might be the new top dog...but I have to go to Kohl's first...

4. Will you admit that fencing is a pseudo-falic sport? Yes, it totally is. The only real reason why people like having two swords is so that even if someone is better you can still give them double penetration. Also there are the people with 40" blades and everyone complains about how big they...I mean come on, I want a 40" blade too...then again I want a 30" blade also (35" or so is standard). But it is very VERY falic in nature...and the girls who fence...we all know why they do that...Briana should start.

5. What would *you* do to impress the aliens? "me?" Well I'm sure I'd do something interesting. For starters I'd have to get some new make up, I haven't worn mine in so long a bunch of its probably dried out. Then I think I could probably get dressed up. I'd have to get a corset that fits (but boy are they fun to wear) especially since my waste syncher got eaten by the house (which makes me really sad...I liked it a lot). Then depending on how I was feeling, I'd either put on fishnets and a miniskirt...or just put on fishnets...and a long skrit. I don't really like hiding my dick though when transvestited out...but its hard to make me look like I have hips which is sad....I'll never be a pretty girl (like Baz, right Lisa?) I don't think I totally answered the question...but its 1:00 am and that means I'm tired.

Real Update:

The practice test went well today. I got a 19/25 (including getting the question that was dropped right...otherwise 18/24). Two problems were stupid mistakes (one was quite literally I didn't divide by two...) and three of the others were things that I hadn't even looked over before, but after looking them up I could do so they wont be a problem again (things like Makeham Bond Pricing, Macaulay Duration, Volatility, Bond Discount Model...stuff like that). One question I got wrong...and to be honest, I have No Idea how to solve it at all...I tried for about thirty minutes afterwords...no idea at all...I'm going to print the full answer explaination out tommorow though and see how its suppose to be done, otherwise I'm looking good!! and there was little rejoicing *wimper*

Now, for the random fun lyrics that I hear while listening to music and studying I never realized before:

"When all your wishes are granted, many of your dreams will be destroyed"

"Without Innocence the cross is just iron"

They made me happy...somehow...while studying. Now I should sleep because I have to go to a graduation party tommorow, then more Olsons. Sunday, setting up ren faire in Agawam, then maybe Lar/Lys? We shall see....
