So far this offseason my team has chosen not to re-sign one of the best and nicest players (Johnny Damon), and also THE best first baseman (Casey Kotchman).

instead they have signed:

-A rapist
-A violent dude
-A birther, who is also racist (he throws banana chips at his Dominican teammates to remind them not to act "savage")

I am not pleased. Hopefully the racist starts trouble with the violent dude and they end up beating each other out of a job, and then the rapist catches on fire.

Had yet another blue sim baby. It's a different shade of blue this time. I need to check the way I have these skins geneticized because white sims should not be popping out blue babies at this frequency. Actually one of them had a different color baby, but the skintone was so unflattering (it was a yellowish cream and made her features look flat and bizarre) that I changed it.

yep.

So we're on day whatever of #IvyIllness2011. Since my last post I got WAY WORSE and then better. Worse because my nose went insane and my coughing got so bad I nearly threw up (but I didn't, because I don't do that). I decided against going to the doctor and instead requested Mucinex DM, aka my personal miracle drug, which so far has worked amazingly. I still feel stuffy, but I don't have the runny nose or urge to cough, so: victory.

My mother bought me Kleenex Cool Touch tissues, which have aloe and mineral oil and all kinds of shit in them and actually tell you to keep them below 75 degrees. MY TISSUES HAVE A TEMPERATURE PREFERENCE. They are fabulous and my horribly red under-nose area is already starting to look better.

I almost feel human again! I wrote a little bit (gasp) and I even cut out a skirt out of real non-felt fabric for Frankie. I'm not sure if I'm going to bother hemming it even if I did draw a seam allowance (omg look at me almost knowing what I'm talking about, I am ~hot stuff~). I'm dreading putting on the snaps but let's hope it works! Then all I have to do is find a top since Frankie comes with a dress and I can't just stick a clashing skirt on underneath it. It has a paisley pattern and is burgundy with some blue in it- my mother bought it to make a cushion for an old chair out of, which she's already done.

The conversation (a week or so back) went something like this:
Me: " ARE YOU DOING ANYTHING WITH THIS" indicating small patch of light blue fabric in a drawer
My Mother: "No. You should put this in there, too." hands me red paisley whatever fabric
Me: "ARE YOU FINISHED WITH IT"
My Mother: "Yes."
Me: "OKAY THANK YOU" scurries away, hunched over and looking shifty, carrying an armful of fabric scraps
My Mother: doesn't ask questions because she doesn't give a shit

The small font and lack of punctuation is to indicate my extreme shiftiness during all of this. My mother doesn't know I have new dolls or that I'm making clothes for them, and she hasn't asked what I've been doing with the sewing kit. She doesn't really care. It's not that my mother is uninterested in my life, it's just that she usually assumes that if I have something to tell her, I will.

But I think it's also that she doesn't find the small doings of my life that interesting. I live kind of like a house pet, in that I scurry around doing things and no one pays attention. I wander from room to room eating or internetting or sewing up doll skirts by myself, which is basically the way I've always lived since I'm an only child, and my mother's just not going to feign curiosity in whatever squirrelesque thing I'm doing today. My father hasn't asked either but he's usually a bit clueless. And anyway I can't tell if my mother would offer me tips or be annoyed that I'm 23 and jobless and playing with dolls.

Probably both, actually.

In more adult interests my baseball team needs to stop losing rtfn plz and ty.
Also it's getting cooler outside and suddenly my room is cold and I have an extra blanket and I DON'T WANT THIIIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSS.

SO HOW 'BOUT THEM RAYS.
My stupid wonderful team managed to make history last night. Seriously. It was such a roller-coaster of a night. Down to literally the last strike and about to lose while the Red Sox were about to win their game and push us out of the playoffs, and then the troll Orioles were like LOL HEY WOULDN'T IT BE FUNNY IF WE BEAT THE RED SOX? And then the Rays were like LOLOLOLOL EXTRA INNINGS DOWN BY SEVEN LOL OKAY WHATEVER WE'LL WIN NOW Y'ALL CAN GO TO BED.

seriously, Orioles fans were chanting LET'S GO RAYS. I take back everything bad I ever said about you, Trollrioles.

ANYWAY I have been sick! GASP. I have a sore throat and my nose is a little wonky. A little runny, a little stuffy. I caught it from Boyfriend (GEE THANKS) but judging by his symptoms I'll be better in a few days. No fever and only a few coughs here and there so I don't think doctors will be involved. I get sick so infrequently that when I do I completely forget how to exist. I've been miserable at levels that are far greater than I should be for what is a very minor illness.

In any case I've been downloading male hair for sims, which is a lot harder than it sounds. How come I can find a Hello Kitty fire alarm, but I can't find hair for male sims that isn't just a lazy re-do of a female hair? I'm not really happy with any of the hairs I've downloaded, but I don't really have a choice :( I'd be fine with keeping the small amount of hairs I do have, but after awhile I start associating certain hairstyles with certain sims and then I feel weird about putting the style on another sim. But we'll see if I can't break out of that.

I am going to read a book I read once and loved in my teens. I hope I don't discover some sort of unsettling anti-feminist themes or something that totally ruins it.

I'll let you know how this goes.


ALSO I SAW A BASEBALL GAME AND JAMES SHIELDS PITCHED A COMPLETE GAME AND IT WAS EXCITING AND WONDERFUL. Oh, baseball, I love you.

So, I feel like I should mention that I was sick all last week with some sort of pukey thing. I threw up only once, but the after effects lasted from Monday to Sunday, when I woke up feeling miraculously better and ate the entire house. This broke a no-vomit streak I've had since February of 2005. In fact I woke up on Monday feeling awful (after several days of decreased appetite) and angrily willed myself not to throw up, and spent the next few hours proud of my own stubborness and ability to control my body but in terrible pain, after which my stomach took matters into its own hands and the rest was history. We have a cream colored carpet (whose brilliant idea was that?) but everything seems to have worked out fine.

Because I have some sort of slothlike metabolism, I spent an entire week not eating solid food- this is not an exaggeration- and lost no weight at all.

I suspect I will not be sick again until at 2012, although since this wasn't my annual sinus infection there's still time. I seem to have passed through the change of seasons' allergies without any problems, but we'll see.

In other news, Boyfriend gave me a gigabyte of ram as a get-well present and Aphrodite seems to be running a bit better. Sims in particular zooms, which brings me great joy. I mean, I'd run the internet off of a typewriter hooked up to a telephone and a box with a piece of glass on it and I'd be happy if it weren't for my unfortunate sims addiction, which requires a decent graphics card (which I sort-of have) and memory (which I didn't have, until now). Sims is pretty much my greatest joy in life, besides [livejournal.com profile] ontd_ai.

In other other news I received a letter from Megan whose lj name I can't remember but who is @mcaro5 on twitter and whom I adore, and now that I'm sure I won't transmit terrible pukey germs through the mail I can reply to her. Anyone wanna say hi?

Baseball season starts on Friday and I am about to jump off of my roof in excitement.

Also also did you guys realize there are currently THREE pregnant Spice Girls? jfc. Geri and Mel C must be jeals.

OKAY BYE.

Let's talk about how awesome my life is rn/how awesome this year will be:

~KYLIE CONCERT IN MAY DID I MENTION THAT? I WILL BE DEAD OF FLAIL BY THEN.

~New Gaga song came out recently. Just a remix of a song from the new album, BUT STILL. May is going to be such a good month. And Born This Way comes out so soon! On my mother's birthday, in fact.

~New Britney too!

~Maybe even new Kylie but idk about that.

~Valentine's Day is soon and I have someone to spend it with.

~My Hello Kitty nail polish is awesome rn. My nails are just the perfect length/shape and it is awesome.

~I'm getting into Girls Aloud (again). HOW ARE THEY SO AWESOME. And hot. How are they so hot? Mysteries of life.

~AMERICAN IDOL STARTED AGAIN AND THIS SEASON IS ALREADY AWESOME. I love J.Lo so much. I feel like she's my long-lost aunt. Her sense of humor is like exactly like my family's and some of her inflections are even like ours. And we're not even Hispanic. (We're Italian and she comes from the same neighborhood my parents are from. Which isn't nearly as bad as she makes it sound sometimes.) Of course ontd_ai makes it even better. It's just so much fun to watch it with a big group.

~I'm following the best tumblrs rn. So many gorgeous picturesjsdfhsjdf.

~My team signed two big names who could potentially be awesome. SUDDENLY THE TEAM DOESN'T SUCK ANYMORE. I mean, they're old and there's a good possibility they won't be awesome, but right now I have hope. And that feels good after the gutting the team had in the offseason. So many of my favorite players left.

~It's one of Boyfriend's best friend's birthdays on Friday and we're going to Gasparilla (which is like Florida's Mardi Gras). BEADSSSSSS. I've never been before and I am so excited but I have nothing hot to weaaaaar and I'm the hottest girl so I need to step up my game. I am so not used to being the hottest in a group. The natural order of the world is all off-kilter rn.

~I love neopets.

KBAI.

THEY SIGNED MY FAVORITE PLAYER FOR ANOTHER YEAR. *happy dance*

In bad news, I need totally new glasses. New frames, new lenses, and an appointment for a new exam because there's no point in getting a new pair of glasses with an old prescription. Because we can afford that right now.

Boyfriend feels so guilty because I broke them in his house. He bought black tape so it would look slightly less crappy, and it kind of does (he's pretty crafty). From really far away if you're a moron it looks like they're supposed to have black triangles on the sides, so that's... cool, I guess. He tried so hard, I really appreciate it. <3 I DO feel less stupid.

Also, now I forget if there was anything else. BUT YAY BALFOUR, YAYYYYY FOR SIGNING FOR ANOTHER YEAR :D <333

BJ Upton just hit for the cycle! Why he's doing so well now (with three non-important games left of the season) instead of, you know, while they were still in it for the playoffs, I have no idea. But still.

And of course, Yankee fans booed. WTF. Let him have his moment. Longoria was proud.

No, that's stupid as shit. I think horoscopes are general enough to give you a lift if you read them and take their advice (work harder, rest easier, whatever) if it actually applies to your life, but I think it works by coincidence. I can be stupidly superstitious (I'm a baseball fan, can't help it) but I don't really believe in any of that. It's just stories.

That said, I'm a scaredy-cat who gets spooked when she sees scary pictures online, so it's not that hard to rattle me. But I know I'm being stupid.

The Rays lost horribly tonight, 10-1. Had I been watching it at home I would have changed the channel. I'm glad I got to see my heroes play live, and my binoculars were pretty awesome, but I'm sorry the stupid game sucked so badly. It was truly awful.

In other news, my father bought my mother a little GPS thingie yesterday and I've been playing with it ever since. It is the single most awesome piece of technology I've ever played with. It's my new toy. It's supposed to be my mother's, but she hasn't really had time to figure it out yet. It has a touch screen and is super smart and everything. I <3 it. We named it Maggie, because the brand is Magellan but it talks with a woman's voice. It has all kinds of information about any place in the whole US and like Mexico and crap that you'd want to go. So awesome.

I'm not even going to talk about how depressed I am about the stupid game. Maybe they'll win tomorrow. :(

KYLIE. The X album or the Light Years album. "Kylie" and "Enjoy Yourself" work sometimes too. Sometimes I get too silly-happy because they're cheesy 80s music.

Also, unrelatedly, Aki had his surgery today, and now they're saying he could be back in 6-8 weeks instead of next year. I was so worried I even set an alert on Hotmail. ALSO I'M GOING TO SEE THE RAYS TOMORROW YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! With my boyfriend and parents and yayyyyyyyyyyy so excited :)
