I remember it used to take me hours to go through the back log of posts to catch up. Now, it takes me moments. It's kind of sad. But, on the bright side, I rarely miss a post :-)

On Thursday July 4th, a pretty amazing thing happened. While aboard the Celebrity Millennium, on the last day of sail, among several friends (all of the group on the trip) [ profile] linnaeus proposed. Without hesitation I said yes. I'm still in a bit of shock. I didn't cry like I had expected I would should it happen, my heart was too busy pounding and I hardly remember what else he said. I'm hoping my memory will produce that information. I doubt it though.

And a LOT of emotions. Also, I had six months, what the hell happened???

Fall has always been my 'Spring'. While most people view the Spring as the time of year for blossoming and new beginnings, I see Fall as such. Most of the major changes in my life have happened in Fall and or Winter. I was engaged and then married in the Fall, I decided to make the move in when Ohana was created in the Fall, and I honestly feel weird in the school year if I don't start during the Fall Semester.

And next weekend I add to my Fall events, I'll be making another big move. This time into the grand city of Chicago. Every move I have made since I was a small child had a fair significance. From the first apartment my mom and I had on our own, to my first apartment, to my first apartment with my exhusband, to the first place without my exhusband (later to be named Ohana), and this time to take the next big step with Paul.

Neither of us know how this will go, but we'd be dumb not to try. There is honestly a lot of certainity in this move. I'm more sure than I've been in any of my adult moves. I'm also the most nervous I've ever been.

Well, here's hoping we don't bomb. Cause hopefully Ohana has a replacement for me.

I'm glad I avoided LJ this weekend.

I knew the date and chose to ignore it. He wouldn't have wanted me to dwell. However, three years later and I'm still not ok.

Still missing you my deranged little brother.

I’m thinking over a conversation a friend and I are having in Twitter about underwear, panties specifically. The comment was made to me that at least I’m the ‘correct’ gender for my obsessive collection of panties. I realized I don’t subscribe to that notion. Girls can wear boys clothes with little question made of them, however a boy wears girls clothes of any fashion and it’s ‘weird’ or different. I have so many friends who are gender correcting or gender fluid that I have a hard time considering there being a correct gender for panties.
Then it got me thinking of kids and specifically tomboys. I am a tomboy. I never ‘grew out of it’ like so many girls are expected to. So, do tomboys grow out of it because they want to or because society, and possibly their parents, are forcing them to. My personal opinion? I think it’s the expected gender roles defined by our society that expect girls to grow out of being tomboys, that call non masculine boys sissies and adults fags and dykes for not dressing, or acting, how we are expected to.
I am a girl. It is something I have never questioned. I am a girl who society thinks dresses like a boy, because I wear comfortable jeans and casual t-shirts and I’m more likely to be in my Vibrams or Converse than heels. I am also a tomboy who wears frilly panties and lacy bras. So, then what do you call me? I call me, me.

Marks the passing, or rather stealing, of a dear friend Patrick 'Furp" Reed.

I still have a giant hole in my heart for a friend that has pretty much always been there, in one form or another. And time may make it hurt less, but I doubt that will ever go away. 12 years of friendship and memories ended with one persons senseless act.

I miss you buddy, I'm sure you'll have some great stories for me when we meet again.

I've been up since 6:30. Showered and dressed since 7:00. Laundry and dishes are caught up, garbage and recycling cleared, and I have a floor in my bedroom and it's mostly clean! Shortly I'll be off to the store for some last ingredients I need for the cookies for the cookie exchange at work tomorrow. Then makes some ice cream cone cup cakes for my coworkers (I'm sure any spares will be taken good care of by my roommates), then put up the Christmas tree and lights, make dinner, make my bed AND put away all the laundry I did.

I again say, I think something's wrong with me. Or right maybe, this is the first time in months I've actually truly done anything other then be a lump.

I have decided I NEED to get through my storage unit soon to stop wasting money on stuff I mostly care little about. I'm hoping on the first pass will clear 80% of the stuff, sending it to goodwill or the trash. I'm sure I'll make another go after that and clear more stuff. Still need to go through the attic stuff in Posi's apartment too. Bleah, giving up the life of a pack rat is a lot of work.

Although my brother does not have LJ, I still wish to wish him a Happy 21st Birthday!. Mostly, I wanted to let all the people who've known him since he was actually little that he's old enough to drink now. O.o

I'd like to wish my little rattie boys a happy 1st birthday. I'm sad Simon didn't make it with his brothers but shit happens.

I think they'll get a boiled egg or something equally as tasty for this day.

Back from AC. It was an overall wonderful con. Got to spend the weekend with my wonderful boyfriend. Now he's heading back to Maryland and I'm sitting at home alone. Need to fix that little problem.

Don't supposed anyone has a spare 2500.00 dollars they'd love to give me for this It's pretty, it's in damn decent condition. Or even this, not much different (don't worry, they are just eBay links I promise). Although, the first one would be the most awesome since it's right in Schaumburg, just saying :D Oh well, I will just continue to look and drool.

I was not able to do this then...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS [ profile] wyldekyttin!!!

I'm not going to be able to sleep, at least for awhile. I don't love thuderstorms as I once did. Something about seeing your house flooded kind of kills that. We are under a tornado watch, which doesn't worry me too much, and we were under a flood warning and have huge storms over us.

In lighter news, saw Star Trek for the 3rd time in less then a week. First time on Imax tho. However, it will not be the last. I'm going to see it tomorrow with [ profile] moryssa. My name is DataHawk, and I'm an addict. I also <3 Spock.

Ok. I have a 25% off coupon for Borders on any one item. How should I spend it?

Saw the new Star Trek movie tonight. Fan-fucking-tastic. I can't even put into words how much I enjoy it. I have a whole new woody for Spock. The casting was stellar. It was more then I hoped it would be when I first saw the first preview. I will see it again.
