I don't know whether it's the fact that my ever-dwindling attention span is now only able to keep up with Facebook/Twitter, or simply that my love affair with LJ is finally coming to an end. I just know that I really shouldn't have wasted the money on that paid account renewal.

Some notable stuff from May through July:
+ Rescued some adorable kittens
+ Got to go to the annual [ profile] toastmantom Memorial Day Weekend BBQ
- Got very ill at the annual [ profile] toastmantom Memorial Day Weekend BBQ
+ Visits to LA by [ profile] mzsa, [ profile] mittenz, [ profile] wyckhurst, and [ profile] eto_theipi
+ Went to the beach twice
+ The ants have gone away
+ Went to both a Rhett Miller concert and an Old 97's concert
+ Went to a great concert at the Hollywood Bowl
+ Went to Infected Mushroom and remembered to bring earplugs
- Inexplicable sudden total irrecoverable failure of my laptop's hard drive
- I am an idiot who does not make regular backups :(
- All my photos from 2008-2009 are now lost forever, along with all my music and all my writing
+ A friend gave me a replacement hard drive for free!!!!!
+ I still love my Sidekick
- It's having problems with the headset, so phone conversations have dwindled
+ Celebrated our 4th Chip-a-versary on July 19/20th!!!!
+ Chip seems to be doing really well
- Chip is misbehaving horribly every morning, clawing and biting me as early as 5 a.m. in his quest for food
+ Going to Vegas this weekend for [ profile] bigkgbguy's annual birthday party!!!

Well, that about sums it up.

I'm drinking red wine. Some of you know why this is a BAD IDEA.

Daryl is here cooking us dinner!!!

We're watching the GNR videos. Axl used to be so young and hot. What happened?

P.S. I may be really drunk. And I would drunk dial all of you, BUT my phone is dead. It's in two pieces... again.

ETA: [ profile] toastmantom, this is for you:
aceofkittens: (woohoo!)
Russell Fucking Crowe, on stage with Great Big Sea at the House of Blues tonight. Singing "Folsom Prison Blues." (ETA: Youtube link, until they take it down

Even better, [ profile] invisiblebf and [ profile] setmosis six beers gone.

Ass shaker! ASS SHAKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did I mention: RUSSELL FUCKING CROWE? GLADIATOR (No, but she was!) "My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

[ profile] sassycat8 and I are now drunk. Bring on the flying elves.

P.S. PINK DOT is the best source for random sandwiches and pretzels.

I have been failing at LJ entirely. It's been very busy! :) [ profile] vaznetti and her husband are visiting. Today, I took a personal day, and we went to the Getty Villa in Malibu. While there, I discovered an ancient Roman mosaic that might possibly be a very early cat macro...

Mosaic macro )

On the agenda for tomorrow: my company holiday party aka major drunkfest.
aceofkittens: (bad mood)
I'm self-conscious about this first line, because I just remembered about that meme where you post the first line from every month for the past year.

I'm sort of in a daze, barely able to keep up with LJ. I've been down in the doldrums for a while now and can't seem to shake it. However, there are some positive things:

  • I have finished decorating my new cube at work. It is a thing of beauty. I will take pictures and post them.
  • Got to see [ profile] missorangegirl down here in LA... mad laughs and pomegranate martinis!
  • Going to see The Golden Compass tonight at midnight and again next week with [ profile] vaznetti
  • [ profile] vaznetti is coming to visit next week! Yay!!!
  • Chip is the best! :)
  • aceofkittens: (ah go on)
    [ profile] invisiblebf's mom is unexpectedly coming up from San Diego! Ack! Back to frenzied cleaning! :)

    Pretty soon, with all this scouring and sorting, the apartment may be ready for a party!!!

    Ok go

    I realized that it's been a week since I posted, but I feel like I don't really have much to say right now. I'm just chugging along and it's fine. It's a brief lull before the madness begins. I realized today that I am already solidly booked every weekend from next weekend until December. This coming weekend should be a time to batten down the hatches and prepare for the whirlwind. I still have Burning Man crap lying around everywhere, for crying out loud. I need to sort through all the clothes I don't wear. I need to do a lot of things.

    I will probably do none of them.

    Last weekend was awesome, though. [ profile] takeitez and [ profile] toastmantom came down and we had some fun. Where to begin? It was like cramming a SF weekend into LA. First, [ profile] invisiblebf and [ profile] takeitez went to LACMA and the La Brea Tar Pits on Friday while I was at work. Later that night, we went to a friend's poetry reading at a youth hostel in Santa Monica (to hear such gems as "Cockblocking C***" from others performing — though my actual friend is a good poet) and to add to the misery, I had to pee the whole time. It began to rain and we escaped to drown our sorrows at my favorite British pub a few blocks away. The next day, Toasty arrived and over the next two days, we went to The Getty, LA Decompression, Champagne Madness, and another friend's acoustic guitar performance, not necessarily in that order. Good job! I made dinner and we ate a lot of cheese. We drank — a lot. We ate more cheese. We played the Story Game (the television vomited fire!) Many in-jokes were created. Good times!

    Last, but not least, tomorrow, my mom is leaving on a trip to China for two weeks and she's completely freaked out about it. So that about sums it all up!

    My mom is coming to visit next weekend, so I am frantically cleaning... if by "frantically cleaning," I mean: sitting on the couch and not cleaning at all. :)

    Yesterday, we went to Whole Paycheck, where I spent $50 on very few choice items. :) We bought Red Dragon cheese and it was so delicious and so worth it. However, we didn't finish it and you're not supposed to refrigerate it, but leave it out to "enjoy at room temperature," which kind of freaks me out. So today we may buy a cheese dome.

    I really need to post the photo of Chip sleeping on my foot!

    Finally, happy birthday to the lovely [ profile] emmiepie, who loves elves almost as much as I do! :) ♥
    aceofkittens: (oh god ted)

    After day drinking all day with [ profile] futureboy and [ profile] sassycat8, we accidentally set [ profile] invisiblebf's hand/foot on fire.

    And the floor.

    Hope you're not miffed!

    Last week proved to be a very long one and I kept meaning to update and never did. I had lots happen and yet no motivation whatsoever to blog about it. I'll try to do a summary. With 2 photos.

    Week in Summary )
    aceofkittens: (woohoo!)
    I'm going to copy [ profile] futureboy's style and do a little "Weekend in review" thing with highlights & lowlights.

    My weekend in review )
    That is all! :)

    The weekend was a mixed bag. Gonna groove it all night long )

    Ho hum

    I feel like I should update, but everything I want to really update about would take so much effort - taking pics, uploading pics, etc.!

    It's very annoying: my newly dyed hair barely lasted a week. I don't know if it was being in the desert or the NoRinse shampoo, or what, but it's faded almost completely. Dyeing it again seems like a lot of effort. Cutting it seems like a lot of effort.

    Everything seems like too much effort right now, have you noticed?


    But now I will blather on excitedly about meeting The King of All Mangoes )

    Despite being so ill that I'm breaking into a sweat every time I move, I managed to get my friends to take me shopping today and bought 10 boxes for $10. BLISS!!!!!

    Not that I can fill them with anything, because that would involve staying upright.

    Another has fallen to the Dark Side; [ profile] cardoon is now among us. Soon, soon, the Toast will crumble... yes.

    So, it's been a fun-filled few days, but boy, am I ever tired for some reason. I guess I'm not used to all this "leaving the house."

    Friday, [ profile] cardoon drove up from visiting her grandparents and a fun-packed day ensued. I find that I really enjoy having visitors, now that I have my fabulous guest room. There's just something about being able to give people their own space. Anyway, first, I dragged her to Venice to feed my precious ducks and see my darling Black-crowned night heron. Then we wandered all over Venice Beach. I was hoping that the freaks would be out in full force, but it was so windy, we were eating sand and grit & the freaks were in hiding. So, after a coup purchase of some shoes, and dinner at Junior's Deli, we went on to Santa Monica.

    How Skee-Ball is Dangerous To Your Health! )

    Why did she take Jessminder's shoes? )

    This entry is so full of links! Kind of makes you sick, doesn't it!

    Well, I am not sure what is on the agenda for tonight and tomorrow. [ profile] cardoon has left and that means I can retreat back into my Fortress of Solitude.
