So I enlisted Rachael's help and we dyed my hair. This is pretty much as close to my natural color as I can get out of a box.

Myspace-worthy webcam pictures, because I'm too lazy to find my real camera right now )

You know what? I don't say it a lot, but I've been feeling it steadily more and more since 2008 when everything changed: I'm pretty hot sometimes.

Today has been a good day!

I woke up around 3 after having confusing and vaguely sexual dreams about my old pastor's son (I mean, like, back when I started going to church 20 years ago, old pastor). It was muggy and hot and I just laid in bed derping around on Facebook until my sister texted me and asked if I wanted to go swimming. I asked her to take me to get my hair cut first, so that happened, and then we picked up Julia's friend Brandy and the three of us went to go swim in Diane's pool. After that we got ice cream at Reese's, and then we dropped Brandy home and got McDonald's on the way home, and that brings us up to now. [livejournal.com profile] frontyardninja hooked me up with the icon I asked for because she's made of awesome. :D

SO WHO WANTS TO SEE MY NEW HAIRDO? Julia says it looks Spocklike. I laughed at her.


I like it. :D

Tomorrow I have my neurology appointment in Rochester. I am not sure what to expect. I've already had electrodes attached to my head once, I hope they don't do it again because that stuff is disgusting to get in your hair. And I really hope they don't stick me in the MRI machine again because it was noisy and I had to keep reminding myself that I'm not claustrophobic.

On the bright side, if I survive the appointment, I get to go to the drive-in with my mother tomorrow night to see Toy Story 3 and Prince of Persia. :D

So how've you all been today?
speccygeekgrrl42: (...uh.... : Calvin and Hobbes)
but they are something.

Man, it was a bitch getting the left contact in. This gets easier with practice, right? If I can't do it in under five minutes by Friday, I'm not going to order a box, that's one of my stipulations to myself.

I promised pictures, and I deliver on my promises. sometimes. )

I think I like it, but I'm not sure I do, if you know what I mean.
speccygeekgrrl42: (*srs faces* : Parker and Dewey)
A little under an hour's dicking around with Photoshop and I have two perfectly servicable pictures of my favorite OCs together! It was really hard finding pics of RDJ that weren't movie-related. I had to pass up a lot of good ones because they had Tony Stark facial hair going on. Unfortunate. Now I'm keeping an eye out for pics of him and GDL in t-shirts because I think that would make a cute picture. Anyway, Parker and Dewey under the cut.

yes, I amuse myself entirely too much, we all know this )

The final did not go quite as smoothly as I'd hoped. I really should have gone to the study group on Friday so I had an idea what to study. I did a pretty good job bullshitting what I didn't remember clearly, though, and I'm pretty sure I won't end up with less than a 90 in the class (because I'd really have to do a lot worse than I expect I did to get below an 80), so that's one more A on a pretty impressive semester. Now I just have to focus on not failing English Lit and I'll be fine. I have until Friday to prove I don't entirely suck at it. Just, you know, moderate levels of suck.

I really didn't expect him to ask about poststructuralism, though. I mean, seriously? I am so glad I was in class the day we discussed that. I missed a class when we were talking about the female divine and that left me floundering on one question. It took me an hour and a half to finish the test, usually I'm clear with even essay tests inside an hour. I... spent a lot of time staring at the blackboard thinking "oh, fuck", honestly. xD It's so much easier to laugh about it now that it's out of my hands.

First, a handsome cat:

because cats are awesome, and my cat is particularly awesome )

Then the dresses.

the white one )

the black one that I don't like as much )

the grey one I really like a lot )

I like the empire waist on the grey one. The black one I'm pretty iffy on... I might send it back and get another one the same style as the grey one, just a brighter color. I'm not sure.
speccygeekgrrl42: (one true love! : me and mah kitty)
Gel + hair = not actual spikes, I'm going to need a kind of gel that isn't "curl-scrunching gel" to obtain those, but it's something:

what, exactly, I will let you decide )

I think it is much too short in the front, but that's just my fear of a big forehead talking. I keep wavering between loving it and thinking the whole thing is just beyond reasonably short and back again. I'm sure I'll settle on loving it after a couple of days. The fact that you all think it's cute helps a lot. xD I am a sucker for public opinion, after all.

I gave in like you all knew I would and here's my thread on the Holiday Love Meme. I'm going through and leaving love all over now and I'll keep doing that when I get back from my appointment with Lisa. :D
speccygeekgrrl42: (goldfishing.)
You said pics or it didn't happen...

well, it happened )

Next order of business is to get a haircut, because this unruly overgrown thing is starting to tick me off.

Is anyone else going Black Friday shopping at ungodly hours? My sisters and I are going to hit the Carousel Mall for the second year running. I have to get my dad's Christmas present, and sweater vests for myself. Anything besides that is going to be impulse buying. I know what I'm getting for my mom, but that's through Etsy. I have something for Rachael, and Julia just won't tell me something she wants that's legal in this country and in my price range, so who knows what she'll end up with.

....more sweater vests ftw. I should probably get a couple more collared shirts to go under them, too.
speccygeekgrrl42: (disciplinarian. : Amanda Palmer)
Today the Body Shop had a big promo going on, so I went and got my face did.

she made me SPARKLE. oh god, the glitter... )

I ended up buying a face care set for combination skin... it's made out of seaweed! And the foundation she used on me, but not the ~*~special applicator brush~*~ that was freaking $26, more than the damn makeup cost. And lip butter, because I have this thing where I compulsively get lip gloss/balm/apparently butter now, in pink grapefruit and guarana-- it's Bawls flavored lip gloss, how cool is that?

So basically I was a gigantic consumer whore today. But I feel pretty, so it was worth it.

Now, I'm going to write my essays for my test tomorrow and hope that I remember what I write so I can reproduce it while I'm sitting in the classroom. Psychosexual development stages, neurochemical transmitters and the difference between people driven toward good things and people driven away from bad things (Behavioral Approach System vs Behavioral Inhibition System), and specific dispositional needs (for achievement, for power, for affiliation, and for intimacy).... and hope that it's only 3 out of 5 and not 4 of 5. >.>
speccygeekgrrl42: (hats are good? : Spock)
y'all want to see the new hat?


I'm barely awake. Time to throw my ass in the shower.

Stolen from about 10 people in the past 24 hours:

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

I went with what's in my photobucket rather than what's on my hard drive.... deal.

about 10,000 words worth under here )

My brain is stuck. :( This is worse than bad because I am not quite done with three birthday ficlets for [livejournal.com profile] tiptoe39 and none of them are letting themselves be ended gracefully.
speccygeekgrrl42: (mission 'annoy Spock' done:McCoy)
E'erybody look at me cause I'm flying on a ship!

dammit friends, I'm a fangirl, not a doctor! )

Hell yeah, all I need is some silver ribbon and I got a promotion to Lieutenant!
speccygeekgrrl42: (!!!PORN!!! : Sasan)
13,900 words! If only I wrote drabbles. xD

No but seriously who thinks I can do a 500-word Pushing Daisies fic by midnight titled "Itty Bitty's Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini"? Or is that too gimmicky a title?

....come on, Kristen Chenoweth in a bikini. You know you want it too. Actually, here, let me photoshop. Everything's real but the color of the bikini (it was pink):


edit: yeah, I did it. 14,960 words! If I made it porny I could have broken 15,000, but I can't break the porn barrier with Olive and Emerson. At least, not right now. xD
speccygeekgrrl42: (relax. I do this all the time.:Chef!Gabe)

say what? )

Even after a shower, my hands still smell like chocolate. :3 I am going to eat the hell out of this cake after dinner (omg stuffed peppers yussss) and basically sit here and get sugar high and watch Star Trek. :D

I have a couple of Dreamwidth codes, anyone want?

Also, just for reference, in that poll? I was asking for physical mailing addresses, not e-mail addresses. So future fillers-out know. Because I can't e-mail you things which may not necessarily be inherently evil.
speccygeekgrrl42: (I'm a shark! Suck my dick! : Nathan)
Having MegaUpload working in my favor is SO HANDY. I think once I finish Star Trek I'm going to catch up on downloading.. well, everything else. Supernatural season 4 fo sho. See how many gigabytes Gabriel can om nom nom today. :D

Trying to wake my sister up is a Sisyphean labor. Seriously. She opens her eyes, rolls them at me, then goes back to sleep... every five minutes... for half an hour. Whatever. I know you're going to read this, Julia. Next time, it's an ice cube in your underwear.

I'm actually almost caught up on the feedback table?! Given, I am barely 400 words on the pinch hit fic, but. All will be done in due time.

I said pictures last night, didn't I? Well, pics ahoy, folks!

proof that I'm cute like a button, or I was yesterday anyway, and my space krew, yo. )

The reason I have not gotten sick while the whole rest of my family has, I suspect, is because I drink a shitton of cranberry juice. Considering the options in the fridge are nast, separated pineapple juice from a can, milk, or some weird V-8 goji raspberry thing, you're damn right I cracked open another bottle. I love cranberry juice. All I need is some vodka to go with it...

speccygeekgrrl42: (best stamps ever. : stoned kitty)
A little camwhoring under the cut...

I don't care what you think as long as it's about me )

p.s. click meh!
speccygeekgrrl42: (you cry sometimes)
My mom took Heather to the vet this morning.

I remember when I got her. We'd gone into a pet store to look at the puppies, and I drifted over to the rat tank, as I have a habit of doing. And I saw this completely adorable little tan-hooded rat with a weird kink in her tail. I don't even remember how much I paid for her, but it was ridiculously cheap because they weren't rats for pets, they were feeder rats. I didn't even have a cage; some lady who was in the store brought one back for me.

I just... I put my hand in the tank and she came right up to sniff at my fingers. I took her out and she was so sweet. Never once has she bitten anyone hard enough to break the skin, or bitten them maliciously-- only "oh hey food! wait! finger not food!" bites.

Heather Ratface has been a wonderful pet. I don't know if I've been as good a ratmommy to her as she has been a ratbaby to me, but I love her.

44 more pictures )

Picture meme, part 2: THE PICS (warning... kind of obviously pics-heavy!)

In no real order:

[livejournal.com profile] piping_hot wanted to see in my fridge.

[livejournal.com profile] ladyanne525 wanted to see my pets.
Heather, Sadie, Xena, Oreo, and Butcher )

[livejournal.com profile] ladywilde80 wanted my bookcases, and [livejournal.com profile] yumenohogosha wanted my favorite shelf... I couldn't pick just one!
go ahead, look through them )

[livejournal.com profile] weslyn wanted to see my room, the front of my house, and me!
360 degrees of my room, and the house )

And now, the moment you've all been waiting for.... I AM A CAMWHORE

dangerous levels of cute within )
speccygeekgrrl42: (chalk-wing angel : Feist)

and now I am a supreme being of leisure! )

Now I'm here, tipping back Mike's Hard Berry (omg YES FINALLY), chilling out to Vampire Weekend, and generally enjoying the progress of the day, namely: IT HAS BEEN WIN.

Oh yeah, and I got a copy of Wanted that comes with a fabric poster of Angelina Jolie. I will wake up with her badassness in my face every day! \o/
speccygeekgrrl42: (you'll learn to like it ;)  : Peter/Elle)
1) Chocolate milkshake at Denny's. Mmmm.

2) The chiropractor used the electric machine on me today! IT TICKLED xD

So I had to stay up until we took that picture. Now everyone is gone but me. Blessed sleep!
