My mom has been very upset that it is, apparently, 'blizzarding' in Ohio. I have no idea what her idea of a blizzard is, but thankfully, as [ profile] imthelobster and I do not live in Canada (:P haha) I do not have to worry about snow! :D However, it is cooling down quite nicely and I'm enjoying that. <3

You guys. I'm feeling all... ugh. I want to paint! The walls! Like a real home or something! And decorate. And... and. What is up with that? Silly.

I am ♥ing Wrath of the Lich King so far. It's slightly annoying how crowded everything is, but... whatevs. I wish I wasn't at work so I could be playing. :( sad times.

Other random things: I still don't like the new user info but I'm getting somewhat used to it, and I tweaked my journal a little bit today... probably not done tweaking, but it's something, for now.

okay, lj-land. I need help.

Since LJ recently changed the Customize page, I cannot find the link to edit my Links List. Which I WANT TO DO, dammit.

...actually, I just got to it by typing in the URL. (the fact that I got it right astounds even me, I assure you.)

Regardless, does anyone know how to find it now WITHOUT having to type in the direct web address? ::flails::

Sometimes I seriously think I need a brain transfusion or something. wtf, self. just... wtf.


I have a lot of thoughts on the recent lj drama, and a lot of them probably not what most people would expect, but mostly I'm sick of reading about (so why I'm saying something, I don't know.)
Here's what I DO know:
[ profile] pornish_pixies is back! I had taken it off of my flist a while ago, but I now feel this overwhelming need to go and reread some of the stuff I used to love. So I think I'm going to. :D

(I need to re-tag my journal. Not that anyone cares, but it's annoying me.)

OMG so. I got my time off request approved today... meaning that I'm going up to NJ to meet up with [ profile] barbed_whispers and drive back down with her at which point she will be LIVING HERE. You guys... that is seriously less than a month away at this point. I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU ALL HOW THIS MAKES ME FEEL.
(pee ess: Lisa, I need to talk about a couple things with you. weeeeeeee.)

For those of you that haven't heard: More info on the HP theme park! How much do I love living in Orlando? SERIOUSLY. (There's a minor minor spoiler-ish type thing on page two of the article for Deathly Hallows... but honestly, I'm spoiler-phobic and it wasn't something that bothered me/that I didn't already know, so take that how you will.)

Work has been fucking CRAZY this week. Just... insane, I don't even know. It feels like we've been behind all week, and I've had to stay late pretty much every day... which means I'll get to leave early tomorrow and/or Saturday, though, so I guess that's good? On Sunday, though, I have to go in at FIVE AM. Ugh. Uuuugh.
OH OH BUT. I got randomly happy, because one of the AP (Assets Protection) guys has been going around quizzing everyone on safeness vs. safety, since we're going to be having a HUGE visit soon (the VP of the company for AP, wtf) and they'll be going around asking people... so when I answered his questions he was like "Do you know you're the first person out of about a HUNDRED that I've asked that hit all the main points on the first try? Thank you. Just... thank you." And I was like, YEAH I KIND OF WIN. heh.

Hmmm. I guess that's about all I have right now...

(I'll close this by saying this:
I really love some people and I'd really love to punt some others in the fucking face.
Was that vague enough for recent events? Yeah. wtf.)

1. My username is ____ because ____.
2. My journal is titled ____ because ____.
3. My subtitle is ____ because ____.
4. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

My user name is getaway_machine because I really like that Melissa Etheridge song. I could say something about how it's cute because the internet is my "getaway" or something, and that does amuse me sometimes, but it's not actually the reason, so whatever.

My journal is titles "this is the story of a girl" because.. well, it is. It's my story, right? And I enjoy the song as well, so yeah.

My subtitle is "cried a river and drowned the whole world" because it goes with the title. :P So interesting, I'm sure.

My default icon is the "I do believe in commas, I do, I do." one that I'm using on this entry. [ profile] barbed_whispers made it for me after the quote was made in [ profile] shoeboxproject because in our demented universe, I am Remus. And, also, because I like to abuse commas when I write fic. A lot.

The stupid holiday bar on LJ is seriously distracting and I don't like it.

...yeah. Well. Thought I had more to say, but I don't.


OH OH. I loved the Hyotei Tenimyu, because it was SO GAY. Yis. Thank you, carry on.

Semagic keeps telling me that I need to change my lj password when I log in. Bastards. I'd like to see you guys try and guess my password. Good fucking luck. :P [If anyone actually does, I will feel like a major idiot, and I will promptly change it. kthxbye.]

So I felt like I should update because I haven't in a while. JACO Halloween was pretty fun, I guess... certain things pissed me off while I was there, but whatever. People are assholes. And [ profile] celtfaery and I had a pretty good talk, so that was cool. :)

The Turk photoshoot was cool, though. Even if certain things did seem pretty set against it... but I like the pictures we got, and we had a good time, so yay! Pictures will be up eventually... heh. I like how I look in them, so it's a good thing.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary was a lot of fun. Even if it was raining the whole time. heh. And even if I was wearing Jou again. >.> Oh well.
But I got to ride Peter Pan! Finally! Yaaaaaaaaay! I know it's dorky as hell, but I love that ride, it was my favorite when I was little, and yeah.
I still hate It's a Small World, though. I always have, and I always will. It's creepy and boring and... really really creepy. Not quite as creepy as it used to be, but still creepy. Ugh.

Okay. You all know this meme by now, I think. [ profile] fluffymaru asked me five questions, and I've answered them under this cut. If you want me to ask you five questions, say so in a comment and I will. And maybe they'll even be interesting, but that's asking a lot, so we'll see.

Questions and answers.... )

And Happy Birthday to Seto Kaiba. :)

I have enough icons... this could be fun.

Take a look at my icons. Comment with the following:

1. One that makes you automatically think of me.
2. One that you think I should TOTALLY use more often.
3. One that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why I have it.

Comment using an icon of yours that you LOVE, and tell me why you picked THAT one too.
