I've had a horrifically busy weekend. All week my mother and I cooked/baked for a family brunch on Saturday, which started at 11 and didn't end until about 9. I'd spent Friday night watching Monster High webisodes until 3 AM because I am stupid, so I didn't get much sleep plus I think I'm battling a slight sinus infection? I can't really tell. I went swimming and played whatever it is you play when you have raquets and beat the little plastic ball thing over a net, plus I threw/kicked a football and played with a frisbee thing. I am terrible at all of these games. Then Boyfriend and I went to Chili's and then chilled at his house watching Oddities until like 3, because we are stupid.

Then on Sunday, which was today, I had to get up early again (see? STUPID) for another brunch, this time a fancy expensive buffet at a country club. Which was good. There's loads of food I like there, so I was happy.

THEN IT WAS KYLIE TIME. Moar! )

ANYWAY HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY TO THE MAMAS ON MY FLIST.

This entry will probably be disconnected word-vomit. I have things to say but they're all competing.

Also, I'm going to talk about bad car crashes in this entry, so if that triggers you, I won't be offended if you scroll.

My father totalled his car yesterday. He's fine (he says he's sore, he didn't go to the hospital but he says he feels alright, so whatev) but his poor little car is smushed.

My online friends probably don't know this, but, adorably, my parents both have the same car. They're not really matchy cute people, but somehow they ended up with the same car. His had a spoiler and slightly larger wheels but they're the same color. In November, a few days before my birthday, my mother was hit while driving her car (she was also fine, and it was the other lady's fault unquestionably). Her car made it out alive (she claims it's not the same, but it feels the same to me).

I'm sad to see Daddy's car go. So is he. They're good cars. They got my parents out of their car crashes alive and mostly unharmed (Mama sees a chiropracter, one of the good ones I mean, not a scammy one, but she's almost done with that now.) Daddy says his wasn't his fault, and the body shop guy said the other guy had to have been speeding. I saw the pictures. I agree with Bodyshop Guy. How the hell did he get out of that car without ANY injuries? He has a heart condition! I'm not usually superstitious but it was my uncle's birthday. My dead uncle (my mother's brother), who died in a horrific car crash in 2003. I'm just saying, you guys. I'm just saying. (I also woke up like right around when it happened, somehow. And before my mother's crash I said to her she shouldn't leave the house- I just had a feeling. She should have listened since I'm usually right and she has the same ~feelings, but she didn't. We're totes psychic you guys.)

Why am I tearing up right now? I don't know. Usually I can understand my emotions even when they aren't logical, but I don't know exactly why I've been all teary since yesterday. It's just one of those things, I guess. Involuntary reaction to my father's car being totalled (I'm one of Those People who gets irrationally attached to objects, especially large machinery like computers and cars, so the car dying is hitting me hard, and in a related story I direct you to this entry where I discuss my childhood car and how much I still miss it) and my father being alive and not dead, and it being my uncle's birthday, and the fact that I've been feeling weird for the past few weeks is probably all spilling together.

Speaking of my dead uncle, I always think about my dead family members and how much I wish I had gotten to talk to them as an adult. Not that I have anything specific to say, just that I wish I knew them the way my parents knew them. I wish I knew my paternal grandmother (who died when I was 9) as more than a sickly old lady. I wish I remembered my paternal grandfather the way he was when I was little, not the way he was when I was 15 and he had dementia. I wish I could talk to my uncle, because we have stuff in common now (like baseball). I don't know where I'm going with this.

My father has another car (why do two adults need three cars? I mean, I can't drive, so idek) but he'd rather not drive it, it's a Cadillac and the maintenence/gas is expensive. He might trade it in for a new more sensible car, or just buy another car (again, why two cars? idek. We have two houses, the second one inherited from the dead grandparents, so there's room, but still.)

My other uncle just left. He wasn't even staying in my house, but he's just one of those exhausting people (he and his brother were like complete opposites, it's funny.) Now that he's gone and I've written this big cathartic entry maybe I can get back to writing and feeling normal. Timsey soon! Maybe! I hope!

Also new Kylie CD soon. I'm dying, you guys. DYING. And new Futurama started today! AND IT WAS SO GOOD. Like they'd never been cancelled. I was expecting it to be different but it feels exactly the same. It's just everything I hoped for. I'm relieved and excited and so happy. If the Rays would start winning again (and they won today!) this summer will be a good one. Fingers crossed, loves.

-Kylie released a small snippet of her new single, All The Lovers, the release date of the single, the album title and cover (Aphrodite). The snippet sounds fantastic, the title sounds cool, the album name is gorgeous, the cover art is spectacular. I was so worried I wouldn't like it (some of Kylie's stuff leaves me a bit cold, if you can believe that). Last time I was this anxious about an album release I was thoroughly disappointed (I've never mentioned it before, but I never really liked Kris's album, and loathe Live Like We're Dying... even if I do leave it on on the radio out of loyalty), but even after hearing the snippet and seeing the cover I'm still so excited I could explode, so that's good. A Kylie song leaked last week or two weeks ago or something called Love Love Love which I also really, really like. Plus the crappiest possible quality of a long-unheard unused song for her 1994 album leaked and that sounded good too (her albums from the mid-90s are my least favorite, so this was a pleasant surprise.) I hope it leaks in good quality soon.

-I'm officially a Little Monster. I am a huuuuuuge Gaga fan. I'm so happy they chose Alejandro as the next single, I love it.

-Yesterday was my boyfriend's birthday. I took him to Chili's and gave him a copy of my favorite Kylie album (Light Years). Then we watched a British show I like that's on on Saturday nights that Kylie guest starred on in the 90s and I flailed about seeing her on US tv.

-I feel like there must be more to say, but there isn't. Oh! I got my Adam/Rays tickets in the mail and flailed. They're on the bulletin board rn. I can't wait for September.

-I still love my sims.

THREE new-old Kylie tracks leaked today from the demo sessions of her last album, X (which is also my favorite album). There's an infamous set of 3 CDRs with 49 demos (some of which ended up on the album) that Kylie fans have been DYING to get their hands on. Including me. One of the songs surfaced as a remix (Sexual Gold) but we've never had any of the demos unremixed, so I'm so excited to hear them (haven't yet because mama is still awake and it's rude to sit here with headphones.)

SO EXCITED THO.

also I dunno if I've mentioned it, but Dannii is pregnant. EEEE BABY MINOGUE

Well, *now* it's fixed. My boyfriend took me out yesterday (Olive Garden, yay!) but also brought over an old graphics card he had lying around.
He put it in and it was immediately fixed. No shutting down, no lines, no weird green blocks, no memory craziness, nothing.

So apparently the card Dell gave us was from satan or something, idek.

If I say graphics card one more time I will scream.

Oh, and in Snowwatch 2010 news:

Nope.

Well, my boyfriend and I- to put it mildly- don't see eye to eye on most music. We agree on a lot, but disagree on much more.

However, what we do have is respect for each other. I can listen to my music when I want, and he can listen to his, you know, with headphones, and we don't force each other to listen to music the other hates when we're stuck in a room/car together. I love to share stuff I love with other people so I ask him once "ooh new Kylie song!" and he'll listen, once. And if he likes it (which happens a lot, actually) then good. And if he doesn't, I won't get in a huff and force it on him. And he won't do it to me. That's what a relationship is about.

In Snowwatch '10 news: no snow today. Forecast has changed to snow for this weekend, however. So, snow. Is this how it's going to be? The waiting game? Well, it's 29 degrees right now, and I'm still alive. BRING IT.

Kylie tweeted this yesterday:

Merryjinglelovesparklechristmas peeps!!!!

if anyone else did that I'd probably roll my eyes, but because it's her? I think it's adorable.

So presents:

From parents:
Beatles Monopoly (I... don't really like Monopoly, but it's so cute, it replaces dollar signs with hearts, so you pay in love, so we'll play it)
Beatles Trivial Pursuit (I like this much better. Obvs.)
Eyeshadow palette in the shape of a touchscreen phone or something, idk, but it's cute and they're really pretty colors
Holiday Barbie Christmas ornament (I get one every year... the Christmas tree is pretty much entirely Barbies now... oops)
Clip-on earrings, because mine aren't pierced (yet)
Socks! SOCKSSS just one pair but they're very nice socks

Bath stuff from Boyfriend's parents

Skerple brand permanent markers... it's an inside joke, see, because in the mall dollar store they have permanent markers with a logo that's in cursive so it looks like Sharpie but is actually... Skerple. I lol'd so hard I showed my boyfriend and he laughed a lot too. And then he got them for me for Christmas, apparently :D
He also got me rly cute shoes and the latest HP dvd.

And from my grandparents? A George Foreman grill. I am not even kidding. I have no idea why. But I'll, uh, try using it, I guess. I appreciate it, in any case :D

Had a weird urge to be electrician-y this morning (remember, my late night is your early morning, so for me doing this stuff at 5:45 in the morning is not weird) so I hooked up the old dvd player from the living room (when we got the HDTV we got a vhs-dvd-burning player so we can make dvds of our old home movies and stuff) in my bedroom so I could watch Help on dvd. I'd had another old dvd player in my room for years and years that hasn't worked since one day it went all wonky while I tried to watch a different Beatles dvd (The First US Visit, I think? Something like that) and hasn't been able to read any discs since. (I'd blame the dvd, but I tried it in different players and none of them spazzed, so... whatever). Finally hooked it up (mmm dust) and watched it. I love that movie so much. Every time I see it I forget how many funny bits it has. There's a lot of British humor but it's the funny kind, not the weird absurd "is that supposed to be the joke?" kind that I don't get because I'm weird like that, I guess.
Anyway, I love that movie and it made me happy. <3 Tonight I might watch A Hard Day's Night. I wish I had Yellow Submarine, but there's something stopping it from being released on dvd. IDK what but it makes me sad because I love that movie :(

Vinyl

Sep. 2nd, 2009 12:52 am
ivyette: (Beatles)
So guess where I went today!
The used record/book/cd/old crap store! Man, I love that place.

I searched fruitlessly through the LPs and found a hell of a lot of Liza Minnelli, but no Kylie Minogue.
HOWEVER
I searched through the 45s and BAM! All three of her most successful singles (in the US anyway) from the 80s. Mmmmm, vinyl. Whoever owned the Locomotion before I did apparently had a cat or a dog or something, because the cover also contained a few white hairs that aren't human (and one that I think was human because it had a split end) but I cleaned them all with alcohol when I got home to get the dust and other-people germs off so they can stay in nice condition. Actually, the sleeves are pretty worn out and a little faded and stained, but the vinyl itself is in perfect condition, all shiny and black and pretty and everything. I can see a few scratches, but they seem to be just surface scratches, I doubt they'll make it skip. Haven't gotten a chance to listen yet (and I'm a moron, because I keep forgetting they won't fit in the CD tray on my computer) but I'm expecting all three to sound just fine. I don't know if I'll bother listening more than once, since it's kind of annoying to use the record player and you have to keep switching sides and anyway I have the mp3s in what's likely better quality on my computer. But I just love having them, they're so pretty and I feel all special now because I own them.
So I got The Locomotion (whose B-side is I'll Still Be Loving You) (I used to like Locomotion when I was little, because Kylie is my destiny apparently)
I Should Be So Lucky (whose B-side is the instrumental for ISBSL) (and which is like, one of my very favoritest songs EVER, I get so stupid happy whenever it comes on, so this is pretty special to me)
and It's No Secret (whose B-side is Made In Heaven) (Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE Made In Heaven so WHOO FOR ME)
The condition could be a lot better and they probably aren't worth much more than the $1.50 I paid ($2.50 in total because I bought two other unrelated 45s) but I was happy. Fifty cents a piece to own my idol on lucious vinyl and FINALLY join the ranks of the esteemed Kylie fan elite? Too good to pass up. No new Beatles, because I don't know if you heard, but they aren't making music anymore. Trufax! (Also I think I own everything any of them ever put out and if I don't the record store probably doesn't have it, either.)

Then we went to Taco Bell and I won a free large Dr Pepper (vaild on my next visit) from a scratchcard. Today was good.

Except my throat hurts. I can still talk though. Still. GOOD DAY.

My parents and I went to Wal*Mart last night (I picked up some backup shampoo for when what I've got runs out) and we looked in the bin of discount books. We found a Beatles book (I think I already own all of the books worth owning- Mark Lewishon's two Beatles chronicles [every day in their lives and what they did on that day, one book featuring every day they ever recorded anything ever and another on what they did outside the recording booth], which I find myself studying every so often, The Beatles Anthology itself, the complete book of Beatles lyrics, George's autobiography where he published the original handwritten lyrics of all of his best songs and talked about them, and a few picture books) but this one looked really interesting, written by a man who went on the Beatles' two US tours with them as a broadcast journalist (the only one who toured with them) and so we bought it. I've been reading it and it's fascinating and very weird (he keeps talking about people getting broken limbs and head trauma at concerts, which is incomprehensible).
Last night when we got home I had one of those found-ten-bucks-in-your-jacket-pocket-from-last-winter moments, when I opened the book and found out it also contained a CD of 60 minutes of Beatles interviews.

So that was cool. (I read in Prevention magazine from some crazy sappy religious quasi-hippie lady that you should cherish these moments, so I am. Because you can always get sound medical advice from a magazine that tells you not to drink caffeine so you don't get high blood pressure on one page and then three pages later tells you to drink five cups a day, no exaggeration, if you don't want to get dementia. But it was a free subscription and this lady's column is on the back page so I don't think they expect you to listen to her anyway. Whatevs.)

Anyway, I've taught my parakeet how to shake hands (um... sort of, I put my finger near his foot and he grabs my finger with his foot and I move it up and down and then he bites my finger, but not hard) but my other parakeet is not interested in shaking hands (actually, I tell Mookie to shake paw, because I think it's cuter. Perhaps Rocco is simply insulted by my baby language, idk.)

Also, I've used a lot of parenthesis. So, time for bye byes now. Kbye.

I got everything I wanted for Christmas, because my family is awesome. I'm not going to go on about it because I feel like the only person who had a good Christmas, but I did have a very lovely few days here and I'm content. Also, it's 68 degrees outside, meaning my wish for a pleasantly warm Christmas came true.

And the presents I got were perfect, as well. :)

EDIT 12-26-08: I just realized it looks like I'm saying the presents I received were perfect, when I really meant all the presents I gave were perfect. Oops. -11:34 PM

Today I chilled with Bianca and co. And I totally LOVE THE SPICE GIRLS, and I'm really happy about that, except I come on livejournal and find a post about Mel C being all "no no no" to a reunion. Don't ruin my second childhood, bitch.

Other than that, it was a wonderful day for more reasons than you can guess.

Hello

May. 2nd, 2007 10:15 pm
ivyette: (Individual)
So, I've been thinking. I know a few months ago, I was in a pretty bad place. I can remember the hopelessness and the sadness pretty easily, but at the same time it feels like a lifetime ago. I'm so much happier now. And also paler, it's kind of amazing how pale I've gotten. I do leave my house sometimes, like yesterday, I went to Target and Claire's and treated myself to some new accessories. And I've been so much happier since I made the definite decision not to go through with the PHCC thing. It just was not for me. I still haven't started real estate school yet, so I dunno exactly how I feel yet. But the class is exactly a month long and only three times a week, so even if I hate it it's not as big a deal as the commitment needed for "real" college. I'm telling you, I've been so much happier since I said "eff you" to PHCC, it's amazing. I feel like a different person.

And that's basically it.
