And I fall in love every other day, and I feel like a fool. I have to face the truth,

OK, this is just me whoring myself, but I was wondering if anyone would like to commission any hemp jewelry? I have metal, glass, and wood beads, a number of different kinds of medalions, and I need to sell stuff cuz I'm poor :) If you or anyone you know needs hemp jewelry, let me know. For serious.

That's really all I've got. Good weekend, ended too quickly, per the usual, and the week will be longer than usual cuz I'm working early tomorrow to help out with some extra shifts that are hanging around.

Congrats to anyone who graduated today, and who reads my livejournal! :D

I've been slipping through the years. My old clothes don't fit like they once did -

So, apparently my subconscious thinks Peter Lorre is just the highest pinnacle of dishy and sketchy. Now, the dishy I can't explain (because looking at his pictures now, I don't think 'ooooh, sexy!' I mostly think 'wow, I'll never eat Cocoa Crispies before going back to sleep again....') The "sketchy" is a little easier to explain - and probably needs no explanation for those of you who have seen M. For those of you who haven't, you should, because this entry is a dream entry, not a creepy-ass movie review.

Anyway, in this dream, Pete Lorre was apparently staying with me in my family home, and I was apparently very much in lust/love/like? with him. Like, we were fucking in the car while the rest of the family was being decent and going into the supermarket. I don't remember much else about it except that: 1) Peter Lorre was not introducing himself as Peter Lorre, but was using a fake last name; 2) my grandfather apparently did not die of a heart attack at the age of 56 in this universe because he seemed to be present, and at one time gave my mother a hard time for saying "fuck"; 3) my family obviously thought I was retarded and couldn't recognize that this man was in fact Peter Lorre (I almost feel like he wore a lot of blacks, greys, and whites, as if to make him more... pre-color film, you know?); 4) Peter Lorre, in this universe, was apparently crazy, and I was often convincing him not to strangle me or do other horrible things - at one point the police were after him, and he was dressed in a black-and-white domino costume with his face painted in white and black diamonds with a sad clown's hat to top it all off. My step-brother also made an appearance, as did a few of our friends from our second Disney cruise (i.e., Brittany, her brother Brian, and Devan); 5) apparently at one point my family moved everything they owned while Peter Lorre and I slept, and we woke up to nothing being in the house; 6) at one point, Chris was mentioned, and how it would probably be best if I renewed my lease with him instead of living with Peter "batshit insane" Lorre... I dunno, it was a weird dream. I don't remember much else.

Writer's Block: Robotic

Who (or what) is your favorite fictional robot?


Um, yeah, Wall-E, from Wall-E. If anyone out there feels that I need to justify this in any way, it's because you haven't seen the film yet. That being said, anyone out there who HASN'T seen that film, had probably light a fire under their ass and go see it.

To return to Oz, we fled the world with smiles and clenching jaws. Please help me, friend,

The Interview madness continues!

These questions are from mickeyeyes

1. What is your least favorite word? Why?
This will probably seem strange for someone whose favorite word is "cunt," but I feel like I hate the word "pussy," and the word "tits." I know that's two words. They both just sound so damn dirty. And derogatory, and disrespectful, I guess.

2. If you could go back in time and change something without affecting (effecting? I never fuckin' know!!!) the present, what would you change?
I totally would have shaved off half of Hitler's mustache while he slept ;) There are a lot of things I can think of, that I'd love to change, but I guess the biggest one would be I would love for Memere not to have gotten sick. Even if she had still passed away when she did, I'd have preferred for her to live her last years healthily and happily, and for her passing to be something sudden that didn't hurt her. I wish should could have enjoyed life, and that we could have spent more quality time together as a result. Yeah. That's it.

3. As of right now, who are your top five favorite bands/ musicians?
Hmmm, a very tough question! Alkaline Trio is still up there and System of a Down, certainly. I've been listening to a lot of Placebo and the Scissor Sisters. I have rediscovered Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

4. If you won a free trip to anywhere, where would YOU most like to go?
Oh, most certainly somewhere in Germany. Any of the major cities. I would drink beers and eat whatever it is they eat over their (sauerkraut and sausages?), and just check it out.

5. If you could have acted in any movie, what movie would you pick and which role would you want to play?

Well, honestly, if it hadn't been such a travesty, I'd say Christine in The Phantom of the Opera, but it was a shitshow, so I'll have to pick something else. I think I'd like to be Marilyn Monroe's character in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I don't remember what her name was, I just remember her being up to all kinds of mischief on a cruise ship, trying to seduce some diamonds out of an old man who owned a diamond mine. That could be fun. Plus there was some singing and dancing thrown in. Plus, who wouldn't want to be Marilyn Monroe? Duh.
