|Cell phone entry
So...I am updating my blog for the first time in forever...and I'm doing so on my cell phone. It's highly possible that this is costing me 40 cents a minute or something ridiculous like that, but when it took several minutes for each page to load, it became a battle of wills: me vs mMode. My triumphant entry right now is proof of my victory (or insanity). Anwho, I'm in Whiting for the next few days taking care of this cute little old lady named Jessie. So if anyone actually bothers reading this anymore, send m a text message, and maybe I'll be able to talk...if so I'll call ya back. Mostly, my days will be spent preparing meals...and knitting. At least Shea's concert on Friday is something to look forward to. Ok, I'm falling asleep, but I SWORE I'd post this stupid pointless entry.

|We'll be adults who smash the tired, exhausted system.
...if you had tried, you'd have seen more clearly the futility of trying to change the world without the efforts of everybody else on earth. You saw and smelled and drank the evidence of six billion disasters that can only be mended by six billion people.
A thousand years ago this wouldn't have been the case. If human beings had suddenly vanished a thousand years ago, the planet would have healed overnight with no damage. Maybe a few lumps where the pyramids stand. One hundred years ago - or fifty years ago - the world would have healed itself just fine in the absence of people. But not now. We crossed the line. The only thing that can keep the planet turning smoothly now is human free will forged into the effort. Nothing else. That's why the world has seemed so large in the past few years and time so screwy. It's because the earth is now totally ours...
...The New World isn't new anymore. The New World - the Americas - it's over. People don't have dominion over Nature. It's gone beyond that. Human beings and the world are now the same thing. The future and whatever happens to you after you die - it's melted together. Death isn't an excape hatch the way it used to be...
...Your destiny's now big enough to meet your jaded capacity for awe. It's now powerful enough for you to rise to the task of being individuals.

Unfortunately, I haven't updated the online version of the Quotebook

|We were looking for ourselves, and found each other
I am angry. I am angry with the stupidity of people. I can't belive that some things are allowed to slide and others are punished as if they're the worst offense a human could commit.
It must be nice to be in government or a huge corporation where you can get away with whatever you'd like. Like getting away with justifying war based on false evidence, sending peoples' sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, friends...off to DIE over a cause that no one even knows anymore. Ask anyone why they think we're at war. Most people will tell you that we're at war with Iraq because of 9/11. And yes, I am saying we're still at war. Fuck that shit about "Mission Accomplished." What mission? The mission to create a situation where more soldiers and american civilians living abroad will die during so-called "peacetime" than during the unsupported war? Fuck you, bush.
I was so upset the other day, when I was talking to my Grandmother. Last time we hung out, she blew me away telling me all these new ideas she had about the government. I was amazed, thinking my Gram finally renounced her Republican ways after 73 years. Then we talked the other day, and she was DEFENDING Bush. Why? Because of clinton's book coming out, and how she feels that clinton was an unfit leader because of his sexual escapades. I don't think he was a great president, either, but hey...I'm not a democrat. I'd take 4 more years of a fake pop-culture prez who's getting some ass over bush in a second. Maybe bush just needs a hummer in the oval office, then maybe he'd stop killing innocent people...oh WAIT...clinton did that TOO. Fucking presidents.
Anyway, Gram was defending bush and talking about how kerry was an unfit candidate because he's too liberal, and blah blah blah...it was all I could do to keep my mouth shut. If it was just her and I, I would have told her exactly what I thought, but Laura, her neighbor (who's practically my adopted gram, they've been watching out for each other for almost 10 years now), was in the car, also. She was agreeing with everything Gram said and adding her own 2 cents in. I "behaved" for Laura's benefit. Interestingly, though, for the first time I visited Gram, I didn't take my potentially "upsetting" buttons off my bag, such as my "If you cut off my reproductive freedom, can I cut off yours?" or my gay pride pin, or such pins as "Proud to be an american, ashamed of my government" and various pro-choice, anti-war, anti-racist and anti-government sentiments. They stayed. No comments were made, either. I didn't even think about it, as for about 15 minutes, I was sitting with my bag in my lap, the pins all facing gram's side of the car, and I know she looked at them. I think sometimes she's afraid I'm gay, but doesn't want to talk about it, in case it's true (it's almost law in my family that if you don't talk about things they don't exist).
It did not help that when we got to dinner, Laura, Gram and I, once we sat down...Laura decides to bellow out, "So, Diana, how is your love life?" I had held my tongue long enough and thought to myself, hey she asked, she's gonna hear the truth. So, in so many words, I basically said to her, "Well, everyone in my family is either married or engaged. The last guy I dated I was with for over a year, then he cheated on me and started dating someone else without breaking up with me. I just turned 23 and you probably consider me an old maid, so I'm not feeling so hot about my love life. But thanks for asking." She actually laughed. Yep, silly me...doing my standup routine at the dinner table again...when will I learn. This was immediately followed by an intense discussion of Gram looking down the menu item by item and telling me what to order. I had already decided what I wanted to eat, and states this. Gram kept telling me that I needed to order more to eat. Laura then joined the bandwagon and started suggesting meat dishes. I guess since I'm kinda used to this, constantly getting heckled by the carnivores I live with, I was actually surprisingly nice to them, just smiling and saying I already decided what I wanted to eat. When our food came, Laura kept trying to offer me her fried shrimp and french fries. Gram also was trying to get me to eat some of her pasta....that had alfredo sauce on it. When I finished about half of my plate of mushrooms, and the conversation started drifting back to a mix of politics and my family...I had to leave. I excused myself, saying that the restaurant was too closed-in, and I was feeling claustrophobic (the restaurant IS very small, and I was feeling pretty oppressed, so whatever. It was a good excuse). I went outside to breathe, and just wanted to leave. I called Sarah and that helped a bit. I tried to get in touch with Adam Tarbox, since he lives really close to gram, but no dice. When I went back inside, I was informed that they'd ordered 2 different desserts, which I could pick from and eat at home...one was cheesecake (the real kind) and the other was a lemon cake (think Borders' lemon bars). Thanks guys. I'll take what's behind door #3
...I don't need dessert.
I'm already rambling and going into way too much detail. Whatever. We went back home, and I put some stuff away in the attic, only to find the air conditioner guy had BROKEN THE LIGHT. Luckily there wasn't shattered glass everywhere, but I had to haul things up into the dark attic while carrying a flashlight. It was also over 90 degrees up there. I got stuff away, grabbed a few pairs of shoes, some of my Spanish books, and a few folders (i'll have to talk about those at another point...hehe). I also put some clothes away, and grabbed some more summery stuff. On my birthday, Steph and I were talking about microfiber shirts, and I had said that I owned one. I had bought it years ago, and I've never worn it. The thing is that it's form-fitting, and the nature of the material is that it accentuates curves...good AND bad. I tried it on, and went into gram's room, explaining to her that when I get my abs and arms all ripped, I'll wear this shirt all the freakin time, cuz you'd be able to see the muscles right through the shirt and it'll look really hot. She gave me this funny look like she was kinda surprised and said "You look really good in that shirt right now!" That made me go over to a mirror...but it also made me smile, because my gram isn't one for complimenting my figure. She's one of the worst critics, who usually points out even if I"m just wearing a baggy shirt...telling me I look fat in it or whatever. So, anway, the shirt. I brought it with me back to al's, but I don't feel comfortable wearing it yet. But whatever, that's a whole different story.
On the drive home, after having kept my mouth shut over political discussions earlier in the day, when Gram opened the door by throwing out a less than appreciative opinion of the police, I actually spoke my mind. Being in agreement over the less than respectable ways most cops work, the discussion started out really well. She was telling me about a lot of immigrants that she knows in the area that are trying to start a new life here, who are getting screwed constantly by the gov't, by the cops, by everyone. We talked about some other things that have been happening in the news, about abusive cops, things of that nature. When the conversation turned to sentencing, and how it's so out of hand how huge corporations are being let go over huge offenses, and the average Joe is getting sentenced up the goat ass over much lesser offenses, I turned the conversation. I told her about Jeff "Free" Luers
, and even though she didn't agree with what he did, she was appalled by his sentence. The fact that he was sentenced to 23 years for what is truly just destruction of property really got her mad. Serving a longer sentence than someone convicted of MANSLAUGHTER? Absolutely not. Gram actually got pretty passionate about this for a few minutes. But then she told me not to get caught up with "that kind of people" and asked me not to go to any more protests or marches, in case someone near me does something illegal and I end up arrested. Well, I almost got through to her for a few minutes.
Spacey is playing with a tic tac box that has one tic tac left. I'm highly amused by this.
Why do I get personally upset when friends of mine tell me they've been doing drugs? I've never smoked a cigarette, smoked pot, or done any drugs at all for that matter...but I used to drink...a lot. I only stopped drinking for good less than a year ago. I hate people who are judgmental, especially when they're hypocrites about it...I don't want to judge people based on their choices, but I just can't pretend I don't care if my friends are doing drugs. I don't act like I'm better than them for not having done those things, because I don't think I am...I just get sad. I get especially sad when their reasons for doing the drugs in the first place was because life sucks so bad. And I know it does...it really does. I'm getting so overtired I can't even make sense anymore. But yeah...I used to try to drink my problems away, and look how well that worked.
Anyway. I got 3 rolls of film developed today, and I got some amazing shots. I had forgotten what was on the beginning of the roll that was in my SLR...and it was the pictures I had started to take on my photo shoot with Sarah. There were a few pictures that I was just struck by. I'm not saying that to be like "wow I'm such an incredible photographer!" I'm saying that with the intention of getting across how lucky I am to have such genuine, expressive, beautiful friends. Sarah just.......yeah. ( See what I mean?Collapse )
This just also solidifies to me that I could never be a studio photographer. I can't be like...look over here, and give me "sexy!" Not my thing. But what I do try to do, I seem to be able to capture well. I'd love to do shoots with quite a few other people, but a lot of people aren't game. I can understand that...I don't think I'd feel comfortable being someone's photo shoot subject. I definitely need to do a shoot with Jamie though. As long as he doesn't pose or try to make silly faces. There are a bunch of others...even some that at first I didn't think would be so great, I thought about again...the first really great b/w photo shoot I did in college was soph. year...with Allison, Phred and Alex. Who knew Phred would cooperate? Who knew that some of my best shots would be from Alex, who we didn't really know all too well, and who I'd never really seen express emotions other than "tired" and "silly." I knew I'd get awesome shots out of Allison. I always do. Steph, too.
Ok...now I'm just rambling. I can write about this stuff anytime...now is not the right time, though. Time for an attempted nap before 2 days of Cafe Inventory HELL begins. I think I'm going to see if I can pass off storytime tomorrow to someone else, to be sure I don't have to stay 2 hours late to get my inventory done (last month I actually was done before my scheduled time to clock out, but I also had an extra day to work on it...and begged my way out of having reg and Minfo time to finish).
Shutting up now. Current Mood: drained

|All these places only had one pair...
I have so much to fill in about, but I'm too tired right now, so here's the focus points, working backward in time...
*Made dinner of soy potato soup and falafel in pitas with Jamie and stitchedupsally
. Tres magnifique.
*They bought me FROGS for my birthday! They are AMAZING! I just...wow. I have to post pictures of them. The springy one in particular. Even Jekyll fell in love...
*Went to the O>Matics practice today. That in and of itself could be a multi-hour rant. Things are not happy in Omaticville.
*I was denied the right to open a bank account today because some banks are now doing a CREDIT CHECK before they will allow you to open an account. Apparently I have to continue cashing all my paychecks and paying my bills via Western Union until that clears up my credit rating enough for the illustrious Wachovia.
*Was up doing stuff online until 6am yesterday. Good thing I had the day off.
*Everyday is a constant reminder that I need to find a new job.
*I'm having an internal struggle about whether I want to continue doing Storytime at Borders. When I'm not doing it, I'm reminded of the inconveniences it causes, but then when I'm actually reading to the kids and doing the crafts with them, it can really brighten my day.
*Everything is falling apart in the cafe, including all of the appliances breaking down.
*Calamity Menagerie needs more members. Apparently I am going to be one of said members. I need to get my flute from Gram's, acquire a xylophone, and borrow Sarah's keyboards. Hey, I can multitask!
*Spook Handy thinks I'm Jamie's sister. When I got very confused by this comment, he thought I was insulted. No...just very confused. We look NOTHING alike.
*Greasetruck hummus is tasty.
*Weekends at Borders suck a whole lotta ass.
*I saw Saved! with Didgeridoo and his friend Jill. It was really good, we had a lot of fun, and it was an enjoyable outing for all involved. I could do an entire rant on this movie, as well.
*I started writing this big long post about what we did on my birthday, then the computer froze and the whole thing was lost. I'll have to repost what we did sometime.
*My birthday was pretty equally full of disappointments as it was full of fun times had with fun friends. This in no way means that I don't appreciate the fun I had with the friends that actually showed up. It just was seriously disappointing how many people didn't.
*I own a blue wig which automatically makes me cooler than you.
*I saw HP Prisoner of Azkaban at the opening midnight showing with Didgeridoo (Jill was there, but I didn't really meet her until Saved!), Chad, leia1
, Al, Danny, stitchedupsally
, Jamie, Matt, Siobhan, codymah
and Steve(aka Date). I could rant about this one for a long time, and after I see it again, I probably will. Shortest appraisal: The film itself was beautiful, amazing, wonderful. The film as an adaptation of the book SUCKED.
*My Grammie informed me over the phone that my younger brother is now engaged. I got a package in the mail from my sister the next day with a letter proclaiming the same malfunction. This normally would be cause for a celebration, but it is not for me, when my brother is so far in the closet that he's finding Christmas presents (right, sidhemischief
*I need to get to sleep.I'd ask you, if you don't mind, to kiss you a hundred times... Current Mood: contemplative

|Bamboo Shoots (and leaves)
I find it very Zen that the bamboo shoot that I stole from a sushi restaurant almost 2 years ago is just now starting to freak out on me. I had the thing like...in my coat pocket...for several days after I first swiped it. All of its roots fell off. And it didn't stop being green and fun. It just did nothing. Then I put it in a half inch of water. nothin. After a few months, roots started growing again. It was sitting in my grandmother's house, being ignored, for a long time. One day I went to visit, and I saw that the water had all dried up, and a leaf was starting to grow. I gave it some water. So, after about a year of this, my grandmother took notice of it, and started changing its water and stuff. When I went to visit her a few weeks ago, I saw that the top was starting to completely dry out, and one of the leaves is turning yellow. I decided to bring it back here with me. It has it's little half-inch of water and all that...it is being treated much better than it was in my freakin coat pocket. Now that it's getting attention, it wants to die.
Maybe I should get him a friend. Current Mood: complacent

|Oh, Jared, what have you done?!
How the hell am I gayer than Jared?????? JARED!? sidhemischief
??? What's funny, though, is I tried it again, choosing "But I'm a Cheerleader" instead of BTC, and then I'm only 24% gay...but that's still gayer than Jared! I should have Jenn Mesce tally up my Dyke Points...because maybe I'm just fooling myself...I mean, cuz these online quiz things dictate my life.
Hehe, on a similar vein, though...I am still having total lesbianic after-shocks from being less than 200ft. away from Ashley Judd yesterday. I have to actually write about the march at some point, but, I just thought I'd throw that in there with this. God I love her. What is this spell she has cast upon me??? Current Mood: amused
