Happy New Year!

My resolution is to listen to all the music I've downloaded and not listened to. Easy.

Also, get moar dolls. I found a recipe for modelling clay online and it's super simple, so I'll try making a body for Bee this weekend! yay!

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.

I think I actually still have all of the most significant childhood toys. The ones I don't were things like electronics that either died or were given away to younger relatives (I being the third-oldest of many, many second cousins, and the two older ones were "poor"). I still have two of my little Casio keyboards, (which weren't actually supposed to be toys) and both still work. After some battery corrosion one of them has some trouble with a few keys (you have to press very hard) and the other is missing a few keys, but if you press the little buttons under them you can still get the notes. They're how I learned to play piano by ear (right side only... so I guess it's not that much talent, but still.)

For me my dolls were of vast importance, and still living in pride of place on my bed are Babydoll (a Raggedy-Ann doll my late paternal grandmother mended many times over, and which my mother sewed new yarn on for hair) and my Kupkake, a Cabbage Patch knockoff from Walgreens (she has three sisters who look similar, as well, and obviously all of them are still in my room). I can't sleep without K right up against my cheek (poor thing looks awful). There are pictures of her in her better days on my facebook, actually. I have all of my Barbies, too. I miss the old 80s/90s Barbie face; she had the sweetest, happiest Barbie face ever. The one after her was alright, and the one now looks like a sleepy drug addict or something. Too much makeup. This year's Christmas ornament was alright though, probably because the face was smaller and if they'd used as much makeup as the full-sized doll you'd lose her eyes completely.

My kids will have a ton of stuff to play with someday. :D

"I Want To Hold Your Hand" - Beatles and probably Kylie's "In My Arms".

I've loved "Hand" since before I can remember, and I have distinct memories of hearing it in the car when I was teensy (and that car is, by the way, my beloved 1983 Crown Victoria). I have good memories associated with it, but besides that, it's just a catchy, fun little tune. Also Real Love always makes me happy, and so does... like everything they've done. You know me. I have no least favorite Beatles song.

In My Arms is the same kind of fun, catchy tune that for some reason makes me super happy no matter what. The same goes for her I Should Be So Lucky and Locomotion, and Tightrope, Paper Dolls, and a few others. I love almost everything she's done, but not EVERYTHING, so she isn't *always* guaranteed to make me happy (but like 90% of the time she is.)

So... I told her not to go out today. Remember that: I looked out the window, contemplated the dark skies, my sore throat, and the fact that I was still tired, and said I didn't want to go out. And then I told her I didn't think she should either. And I said it more than once, which I never do; I never tell my mother not to go out, period, and today I said it at least three times. I don't know why I felt so strongly that my mother should stay home, except that every so often I do get those "feelings" that something bad will happen and it always does. (Examples: had one before my cockatiel died. Had one before my great-aunt's car died on the way home. Had one the night before my uncle fell into a diabetic coma while driving and was killed by a semi.) This time it didn't feel like anything much, unlike the horrible sinking in my chest I usually get. I just... looked out the window, and it hit me that today was not a good day to be leaving the house. Except...

She did. And now our car is horribly smushed on the passenger's side and the front tire is gone and my beautiful car may never come back. Of course, our family is weird and so there's another car almost exactly like it sitting in the garage right now because my parents have the same car and also my father has a Cadillac for no reason at all so we don't need a rental.

My mother herself is... well, I want to say "fine" but I think we'll have to see tomorrow; the hospital said it always feels much worse the next day. As far as injuries, the doctor says whiplash but she says she feels nothing and saw nothing on the X-ray and there's something about a neck injury but she says she only feels it in her chest where she hit the steering wheel. Nothing's broken, torn, bleeding, or really bruised. So she's home and feels alright.

She says when the car stopped moving it stopped just next to a pole. She says she was hit so hard it just wouldn't stop. You never like to get a phone call from your shaky-voiced mother saying she was in an accident and your father is there and the car is being towed away and then OKAY I'LL TALK TO YOU LATER BYE

WAIT WHAT, I HAVE QUESTIONS

and then your shaky-voiced grandmother who never shows emotions besides annoyance and anger calls and she's not nearly as shaky-voiced but she's scared, she's scared for her daughter and her husband left the house without telling her anything and she didn't know where I was and what's going on.

And then she made chocolate chip cookies, which I don't know that my grandmother has ever made before in all of her born days.

The inside of the car is fine, she says, but I do wonder if I had been in the car what would have happened to me; there's no steering wheel on my side, so how far would I have gone, wearing a seatbelt as I always do? Would I have hit the dashboard and made the airbag come out?

If I was in the car, would I have seen the crazy woman coming before my mother did? Would I have convinced her to take a different way home, because she often thinks out loud to me about which way she'll go?

Before she had the accident she asked me what was on my shopping list and I said Earl Grey Tea and ramen noodles (Oriental flavor). This was at about 2:30. She called again at 3 with the shaky voice (and immediately I felt guilty for being upset about being woken up again.)

When she finally, finally, finally came home at 7, looking a little glassy-eyed from Vicodin (she says she won't take anymore because she hates it, but I have a feeling she'll reluctantly take some more tomorrow, if she gets that prescription filled) she came home with... English Breakfast tea. I don't know why, but that feels like the cherry on top of the whole thing. The car may be dead (she said it made a horrible noise when she tried to turn it on) and she'll probably be in pain and then THE TEA IS WRONG.

I latched onto that (but didn't complain to her because, come on) because that's what you do when things go wrong: you find the tiniest thing and say "WELL, OF COURSE THAT HAD TO HAPPEN." Like losing your purse that just so happens to have your great-grandmother's earrings in it, or getting sick and throwing up on your expensive shoes; it's not the worst thing that happened, but it's the thing that makes the most sense, and is the easiest to get upset about because the rest of you is thinking "wait, what? what do I do now? what's going on?" It's the most everyday mistake, more everyday than a car accident, so that's what I've been thinking about, because it's just easier than OH GOD I COULD HAVE LOST MY MOTHER or OH GOD MY MOTHER COULD BE IN THE HOSPITAL WITH SEVERE INJURIES RIGHT NOW. Nope, the wrong tea.

I'll take the wrong tea if it means I get to keep my mother. I can live without tea. If you said "you can keep your mama, but you'll never have tea again" I'd take my mother. I'd take my mother in exchange for everyone in the world's tea, because that is my MOTHER and I love her and cannot live without her. Cannot. Ever.

I drank some and it tastes pretty good. It'll probably always be car-crash tea to me now though.

She did find a pair of sneakers she likes which is big, big news because my mother's feet are so picky it's nearly impossible to find shoes for her. So the day isn't a complete loss. Oh, and Adam Lambert at the AMAs, how awesome was that? My mother was underwhelmed, but she's underwhelmed about almost everything ever (she's a lot less shaken up than I would be, although she's definitely more shaken than usual) but dude's face in his crotch and grabbing vaginas and making out with the male keyboardist. There's no point to that sentence besides HOSHIT ADAM.

I missed Kris's presenting because we were next door gathering sweaters for the homeless and then had to find the tripped circuit breaker but the thingie wouldn't open. Today was really weird, you guys.

Oh and an unreleased acoustic version of one of my favorite Kylie songs EVER, Paper Dolls, leaked. It's not very different though.

Just had a dream that Andrea was visiting and she had a car and then suddenly a bunch of cops drove up to my garage and drove... over each other (it was weird) trying to get in the side door so they could ask us about her car being robbed, and we were like wtf it was? And it was and it was upsetting, I think they took money? :(

I woke up really glad no one stole from her.

Then Kris Allen was on Regis and Kelly and he sang that awful, awful song I hate and I can't wait for his second single because this first one is awful but the album is good. I voted for him btw.


This entry doesn't sound like me at all

KYLIE. God. She's touring the US but she's nowhere near here. If I had the money, yes, I'd go. But I doubt I'll ever have enough money to just pick up and go wherever my favorite celebrity happens to be. It seems like a waste, despite how badly I'd like to see her. Especially if she brought her sister, that would be amazing. You know how much I love it when people have sisters.

Also, I bought glow in the dark nail polish today. Somehow, my life feels more complete.

Vinyl

Sep. 2nd, 2009 12:52 am

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.

I FINALLY FOUND THE ORIGINAL PICTURE I USED TO MAKE THIS ICON WAY BACK BEFORE I HAD A LIVEJOURNAL LIKE SIX BILLION YEARS AGO (yeah, this icon is older than dirt). Shut up, this is totally important news.

In other news, I think I accidentally gave myself heat exhaustion/dehydration again. I r smrt.

Also this song makes me cry (I WILL REMEMBER YOU DANNII! COME HOST TV IN AMERICA I'D WATCH)

Unrelated also: I haven't listened to Real Love (the very top song on my very long list of favorite songs, which includes Disremembrance) in years, and I have the Regina Spektor version in my head, and I... I know some of you folks like her (I think?) so I'll refrain from getting all capslocky, but I really, really do not like this version. Really, really, really. REALLY (oops caps). Luckily Dannii's here to help. Also Kylie. Minogues ftw.
