ST. MINNY IS TAKEN!!!

Yes! That is correct. Officially have a boyfriend since yesterday. I feel rather pathetic over how giddy I am about him and all this. Haven't kissed him yet, but probably will tonight or tomorrow. Boy, that's going to be awkward, seeing as how I have no idea how to do it. And I've always been kind of squicked about kissing. But who cares? I better suck it up and get over it because I want to. Who knew I love me a man in uniform? ;) He turns 27 in December and I need to find out if he's Mexican or not. If he is, it's really weird because he'd be like my sister's husband's twin almost. o_o

Now, I will have to keep a big part of my life a secret from him.....for awhile, at least. I don't think telling him I write gay porn - not to mention some underage gay porn - would be appropriate; I'd probably scare him off. haha I just told him my St. Minority tat was a reference to Green Day, not the identity I've made in online fandoms. :) The whole fandom thing will have to wait....til maybe never. I better tell Aud and Jo to keep quiet about it too.

He is such a sweetheart. Which is funny because in the Street Fighter forum he posts in and that I visit, I got the impression he was a complete douchebag. I'm so glad that's not the case. If I'm not helping my dad move tomorrow, I'm taking him on a double date with my cousin Amanda and her boyfriend Justin in the afternoon, then doing another double date that night with a buddy of his and wife to go bowling.

I haven't been this happy in a long time. In fact, I had a real bad patch since May until the end of June (really need to go back to the doc and get back on my meds). Without going into detail, I was about to off myself; even planned on writing a Will. But I'm feeling better and things are looking up, and he just happened to come at a good time.

Amanda and Justin met through playing Call of Duty on Playstation. Manny and I met through playing Street Fighter. Who knew video games could bring people together??? :)

So Excited!

I have a date tonight! Me! I have a date tonight! With a man in the Air Force (He looks good in uniform, haha). His name's Emmanuel, Manny for short. He's as into Street Fighter as I am, loves South Park and all the other shows I do, and likes cats. Is this the perfect guy for me, or what?

I know I'm probably getting overly excited about this; it's just dinner and maybe some video game-age afterward, but my mom and cousin said it's definitely a date since he said he'd pick me up, pay, pick a place to go, and told me to "not worry your pretty little face" about any of it. It's my first date ever. I'm nervous and giddy at the same time and feel pretty stupid about that. :)

Ah jeeze. I pray this turns out to be a relationship; I'm so lonely....even with my 4 kids. ;)

Special Day

Anyone know what today is???? And no, I'm not talking about fucking Harry Potter.

IT'S BEEN SIX YEARS SINCE CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY CAME OUT!!

While everyone else is wallowing in grief and nostalgia over the new/last HP movie, I'm in my own mourning/celebration for a different film. I won't go into a lot of detail, but jut wanted to take the time to thank this movie for what it did for me. Gave me an awesome set of new friends (who I miss terribly now since we all have seemed to go our separate ways), creativity like I've never felt before, an escape and happiness from a family falling apart, and an opened door to other fandoms I never thought of writing in.

Oh yeah. You are still loved and appreciated, CATCF. You will always hold a special place in my heart right next to POTC and LOTR. :D The three movies that changed my life....or would it count as 7 films? ;)

I want to get back into writing fanfiction. I haven't written on anything in such a long time; I miss it. I bought a 12 pack of Coca-cola, a 12 pack of Mountain Dew, and a bag of Doritos this week when I went to the store in hopes that it'll give me the boost to do some work like I used to. Staying up til 4 in the morning or later writing. Ah, good times. I promised myself and some other people that TMYH would be finished sometime, and I intend to keep that promise. I need to get my ass moving on it.

Besides, I just miss writing gay porn. Let's face it. Imagining it in the head before it gets to paper is just so satisfying. ;)

Hello

So after many months of neglect, I hope to get back to updating this thing on a regular basis. It's sad to see my last entry was way back in October because a lot of shit has happened since then. Too much so that I don't even really want to recount it all. There's a new addition to the family, bringing my total to 4 children. At least I call them my children; they act like little kids anyway! I can't believe I didn't even post way back last May when I got the third kid. Yes. "Got." :) Let me show you:

RockyCollapse )

CammyCollapse )

And, of course,

Snickers and HersheyCollapse )

Some other things:

I'm addicted to Super Street Fighter 4 for the PS3. Especially the women of SF. Here's my JuriCollapse )

I may be losing my job. Had to retake the test I took to get hired, and I don't feel good about it this time around. There was a new contract approved, and so there's been a complete overhaul at work. Don't feel like going into specifics. Hoping, praying I get to keep my job because if I don't, I don't know what I'll do.

Still in school. Going after a degree in French. Oy. Racking up the debt there like my credit card (even if I have stopped using it and paying every month, the balance never seems to change; it's a hefty amount).

It's been very stressful. May have to move back in with my mom if I lose my job....not something I'd like to do, but it's a possibility. :/ I enjoy being on my own, but may not be able to afford to just with financial aid. School starts next month - a week after my birthday, I think - which I'm not looking forward to. Need to brush up on my French.

Not going to bother talking about POTC this entry. In 3 days, on the 9th, it'll be 8 years since the first one came to theatres. Ah. Good times. July is such a happy memory month. Both first and second POTC movies came out, and then there was CATCF. :) Fuck HP. They need to get a new month. July is POTC month! At least it was. :( In short: fuck the 4th movie. It doesn't exist.

This will about do it for me right now. Least I got you a little updated...if anyone is still there. I've been lurking like a bitch, but never comment. I feel like I'd be poking my nose in out of the blue and it'd be awkward. :/ But I have been reading! What little entries there are. My fandoms have died down, it seems, though POTC got a little boost. There was a little riff about a month ago in it considering a pairing and it reminded me why I got the fuck out and just post and leave, only replying to those that bother to reply to me. Fuck getting involved in petty drama. I don't need it. I'm so above it. :)

ST. MINORITY'S BACK! for now >;)

Moving again. Into a duplex. By myself.

Updates as I can fit in. So busy and so stressed lately.

EDIT: Also, just went and looked at the "my guests" thing, and found something interesting and at the same time angers me a little bit. If we cut each other out completely, why come look at my journal? Reminds me that you're still around and feels like I have to forget and get over you all over again. Thanks.

Selling laptop. Buy from me??

It's an HP. Nothing wrong with it. Just getting tired of the bulky (though powerful) battery and the vibrant cover art; I want to put stickers on! But with this one, the cover art would just be too much along with stickers. It's not even a year old yet (will be in mid-August). I think the warranty is still good until then, though I've had no problems. Along with the programs it came with, I put on Microsoft Office 2007 Home and Student and the complete Adobe CS4 suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, etc), plus others. Here's the specs:

2.30GHz AMD Turion™ X2 Ultra ZM-85 Dual-Core Mobile Processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 with up to 1 GB dedicated memory
4 GB DDR2 RAM (2 Dimm) (8 GB Max)
500GB (5400RPM) Hard Drive (SATA), SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with LightScribe and Double Layer Support
Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition with Service Pack 1
15.6 inch Diagonal High Definition HP LED BrightView Display (1366x768)
Graphics Card: ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4650 (M96) with up to 2815MB total available graphics memory with 1024MB dedicated
Wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN & Bluetooth® wireless technology
Battery: 12-cell Lithium-Ion Battery

This was a limited time edition because of the art, which is reflected in the default desktop theme. Someone buy from me!!! Asking for $800, but I'm open. :) Here's some pics:






New place, new age, old habits

Well, where has St. Minny been? I'll tell you. Moving! Yes, I've moved out of the house and into an apartment. I'm sharing with my cousin Amanda and her boyfriend Justin. Not only them, but 3 cats (both my bitches, Snickers and Hershey), a guinea pig (Rocky, mine) and two dwarf hamsters. It'll be a zoo. I moved in on the 3rd, and because they don't need to be out of their current apartment yet, they waited and are moving in today. I've brought the major furniture: couch, dining room table and chairs, bookshelf, CD/DVD shelf, coffee table, and TV.

There's so much that's been going on. My mom got the house up on the market (I live with her if anyone didn't know) in March and an offer finally came for it in May. She put a thousand dollar payment on a condo she found (which happens to be right down the street from my apartment) and I was getting all excited that the house was sold and momma would still be close by. Then of course there was all the memories I have with the house and I was feeling sad and all that. Well, I don't have to say goodbye to it yet. Everything went to hell. The people who were supposed to be buying the house couldn't come up with the money, now they're taking my mom to small claims court to get their earnest money back ($450ish), so mom's going to counter-sue them, the lady with the condo thought she was entitled to $500 of mom's $1000 she put down, and a lot of other shady, ridiculous shit was going on. Mom wrote up this angry, long ass email that told the facts of what was going on to bring it all together and show them what the hell all the realtors were doing and who was saying what, and that she was filing a complaint with the state board of realtors. Guess what. 3 days later she gets the full 1000 dollar refund back. Small claims court with the buyers is coming up within the week, I believe. It's been ridiculous. So the house is currently not for sale, but will be again soon. Not with the same realtor.

I'm backed up on emails and replies, so I apologize! I'm working on it. :)

Backing up to end of April, I lost my great grandmother on my mom's side. Just a little over a week later, I lost my great grandmother on my dad's side. It was a double whammy. I've never cried so much in a year as I did in that period of 2-3 weeks. I miss them, and already things aren't the same. It's hard to imagine them not at Thanksgiving and Christmas. They lived a full life. About 90 years worth. They were kickin' until the last few months. I hope I'll be that way too when I get up in age.

To wrap up this updating post, here's pictures of the apartment. It took a few days for the cats to settle in, but they're all good now. My babies. The fat one (Snickers) is beside me right now looking all cute and sleepy. :)

You'll definitely know which room is mine. haha

Numerous picsCollapse )

EDIT: And oh my god it's the 5th anniversary of CATCF today! 15th of July! (I missed POTC 1 and 2 anniversaries - 9th and 7th respectively) How that movie saved my life. Made me turn to fanfiction instead of drugs during my parents' divorce. And all the friends that came with it. Love you guys. :)

"AiW" fanfic *slaps face*

I thought I wouldn't ever EVER start/write an "Alice in Wonderland" fanfic. But god help me, I did and I am. After 2 dreams about a Wonderland and the Hatter, plus a nagging plot bunny, I gave in. I have a very unclear concept of how it'll go though, so this will be a problem, haha. Here's what I got so far.

Title: To Find the Missing Pieces
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Alice, Red Queen, Hatter, Doormouse, Cheshire Cat, etc. (No pairings as of yet)
Warning: Possible character death later on
Disclaimer: I don't own "AiW," nor American McGee's "Alice." I make no profit. Property of American McGee, Lewis Carroll, Tim Burton, etc.
Summary: Alice is captured by the Red Queen's army, leaving the Hatter and Mallymkun to continue the dangerous task of finding the pieces of the Jabberwock's Eye Staff. Can she escape and find them before they meet an awful fate?
A/N: Set in Tim Burton's Wonderland world, though contains elements from the PC game American McGee's "Alice."

Short beginningCollapse )

Born 107 years ago today....

Happy Birthday to John Herbert Dillinger Jr.




I wasn't able to make my "Dillinger tour" this year, but hopefully after graduating next May (which I should!), I'll do one in June. Travel through Indiana, Chicago, and up to Wisconsin. Anyone wanna take that ride with me? :)

Real life update sometime. So much shit has been going on...
