So, maybe I oughta start using this thing more. I imported all my entries and kept all my pals...all my pals that moved over, anyway, so really, there isn't actually any reason to let this thing languish. I mean, besides the fact that between Plurk and tumblr, I've completely forgotten how to write in anything but tiny little blurbs whenever a coherent thought pops into my head. Regardless of how interesting it is.

But I will update regardless.

So, IRL, there is actually not a whole lot going on. The Library is currently under a pretty heavy remodel and every night I come out of there feeling like I've morphed into Pigpen. The amount of dust is unreal, and it settles on everything. We will never get rid of it. It has consumed the entire children's fiction section, and we will soon need to stock archeologist brushes for patron convenience.

Other then that I have exactly nothing going on. I've been attempting to apply for college, which I'm sort of terrified of and excited for at the same time. I'm hoping to go into their creative writing program, because I like to pretend I'm good at writing, good at taking criticism, and I also really hate money and want to avoid making it as much as possible. That isn't happening until the fall however, and I can't even begin to impress upon you how utterly, horrifically, ridiculously stinking BORED I am. Shit is unreal.

Which probably means I'll have more desire for RP. Except that the only thing that's actually recharged my RP drive is a quick little thread made of melodrama I put up in the Last Words meme for a kid's cartoon show that a grand total of one other person RPs from. So I'm going to guess I run on sadness and fandom obsessiveness. GO FIG.

Ah, I forgot how I was going to end this. I guess...How's tricks, everyone?

OK, well NaNoWriMo is a bust. I should...wait and have my own NaDecWriMo or NaJanWriMo. Because November is such an awful month for me and I don't even see why it matters what month I do it in. I have been pretty much stressed out of my mind right now, considering my grade for two of my classes are riding on finals I have no confidence in.

November is pretty much my Lose-Confidence-In-Everything-Month, and I've been a little bit weepy about it, to be honest. Perhaps I could use a pep-talk? For now, Rifftrax Shorts are a pretty good substitute.

I can't recall what else I was going to talk about. I guess I will be studying like a boss. And also freaking out because I am overwhelmed. Like a boss.

I'd make a future/anticipatory Pokemon team, but because my first time with any new Pokemon involves me going "Pokemon Pokemon where are all the Pokemon I want ALL the Pokemon yes even your crappy legendaries give them here what's that behind your back is that a Pokemon c'mon hand it over" I figure my team will take care of itself.

I am not excited enough to download the ROM, plus I don't much like playing console games on the computer, PLUS I don't need another Thing To Do...but I am dumb and giddy enough to start assigning personalities to Pokemon OCs, which is fun and gives me something to daydream about at work when I've got nothing else to think about.

So, I ran into one of my Creative Writing classmates while getting new pencils and a frappachino and we compared notes about stories and then just talked about video games for an hour. That was fun. I was actually surprised at how much we hit it off, and because my IRL social circle has dwindled to one, I was really glad to have a human connection that didn't involve work/my currently-one-other friend.

It occurs to me that I've been spending a whole heck of a lot of money lately, and while I kind of want to save more then I have been, I also know that I'll never again be in the position where I a) have money to spend and b) don't actually HAVE to spend it on anything. And also, my sister has moved out and now adopted a dog that she can't afford and IDEK I guess I just want to quit being the responsible one for a change.

Sigh...also considering finally dropping out of big and/or public roleplaying games, at least for a while. IDK, it just hasn't been all that much fun and it hasn't been that much fun for months, bordering on a year...or, er, however long it's been. I'd love to do some private stuff with friends, mind, but public games no longer really work with my schedule or drive.

Of course, I'm only about done with 25% of my flip-flopping on this, and I still have another 200 years of waffling to go before I make any decisions.

Ffft, I have been really down lately. I don't even know what it is, other then a low mood. I'm not really prone to depression, and I doubt it's that serious anyway. I just...can't make myself do anything but play Harvest Moon until I can't see straight. Oh, silver watering can, you were so worth the headache. Copper axe, not so much.

OH WELL, perhaps I'll pick up when school starts again next week. Then I'll feel like I'm doing something. And I have a Creative Writing class which will be a lot of fun. And I have Thursady's Rifftrax Live to look forward to.

So...pretty much I'm down for no real reason. Pffft. Good.

...Shit, I forgot everything else I was going to talk about. Oh well, I haven't done much lately but Harvest Moon anyhow.

On the plus side, I like LJs new tag system. Look at all those tags I'd forgotten about until I brought up the full list!

So I left my window and shades open so I could have a fan going last night.

I forgot about it this morning, and woke up late, while the neighbors are having a garage sale. I live at the end of a cul-de-sac. Pretty much everyone can see my house at

So it's possible that more then a few people saw me without pants when I got changed today.

...Oops. Sorry neighborhood. Sorry garage sale.

I have some friends coming to pick me up for lunch today. I'll see if I can dive into the car before anyone sees me.

Where did my ability to concentrate on things go? It should not be gone. As is my faith in my own abilities, particularly my writing skills. That went somewhere too.

Maybe I'll find them when I clean up around here. And I don't even mean that facetiously. Getting my space less busy might help me a lot.

I ended up with an extra 200 bucks over the weekend, so I got myself Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter Tri. I love the shit out of both of them, though for different reasons. Monster Hunter came with 500 Wii points so, added to what I already had, I was able to get Bit Trip Runner and Startropics. Which I also like. Even if they both make me pull my hair out.

My...my mom wants to go up gambling again. I take back what I said about not having a gambling problem. I'm just carrying on a family tradition, I guess. Maybe I'll become an alcoholic too, and carry on the OTHER family tradition.

I got a crazy fucking idea. )

Oh yes, and I totally 100% understand if this entry loses me some followers and whatever reputation it is that I might have. I'm the one writing it and choosing to post it, after all.

ETA: Feel free to repost this in your own journals, if you like! Might as well go for broke and see where this ends up!

So it turns out that staying up until one in the morning leaves me completely useless for anything else the next day. That...was a good lesson to relearn.

I think quite a few of you can apperciate this if you haven't heard it.

I knew I had something else to talk about beyond that song and the fact that I'm an idiot, but this has taken me about a half hour to type because I can't focus on anything for more then a few seconds.

W-whatever. I'll just post something else later.

I love making characters. I really do. I've just been sitting here filling out big long character sheets for one I made up last night while I was bored at work.

EXCEPT I should be studying, or tagging, or working on my take-home final. I don't think it'll take me more then a few hours, but still...I could be done with that class if I did it right now.

...Seriously, this is long. I'm only doing like half of it and it's about five pages even then. And I was compiling all my OCs into one big list that got lost when my Lappy crashed, and I want to rewrite that one again.

Why do I only get creative when there is something else I must be doing? Why why why?

...Also, I have totally and completely fallen in love with Kaizers Orchestra in a big way. They are pretty awesome you guys.

Corn chowder with shrimp. This lunch. It is the best lunch.

...Finals. I have a final. I am not worried about this, particular, final. Teacher essentially gave us all the answers and said we could bring them in and use them.

There is nothing worrying about this final.

I'm just fretting about all of my other finals. Which will suck a lot. My Tech Writing teacher gave us only three sentences about what we should do, and I have no idea when my Bio final is.

Man, I had something else to write about but I have totally forgot what it was...Crap.

Yesterday I jammed my finger and it stung like a bitch.

Today I wake up and find the joint has completely swolen up.

And all I can think is "DUUUUUDE that is so cool to touch!"

...In my defense, it totally is. The knuckle is like a big ol' lump.

I, Parcel, mark this morning as my last sugar-related transgression until I take off some, if not most, if not all, of my excess weight. Even if LaMar's citrus burst donuts are the golden ambrosia of donuts.

This is following an incident today where-in I went to get one of these gifts from donut heaven and was presented with a frequent donut buyer card that I had not indicated I wanted, and, in fact, had no idea I was getting.

I thought the lady wanted my address and phone because I was paying with my card. In fact, I was being signed up for their customer rewards program because I look like the type who buys a lot of donuts.

...It was a bit of a blow to my ego. I won't lie.

And so, I resolve to be a new, changed Parcel, who does not indulge in that sort of thing anymore and who will, in fact, be switching over to healthier options and might actually work out once in a while. I have a Scyther in my Pokewalker who could use some love.

That's it really. Thank you for your time. *bows*

Augh, so today I am sick with a sour stomach but I didn't get sick until after the bio lab which really just confuses the hell out of me unless I...swallowed some ethanol. Or something. Which I'm pretty sure didn't happen. Because I do not eat the things used in bio lab.

Anyway, we were isolating onion DNA and the instructor let us take it home. So now there is a vial of onion DNA on my Carefully Collected Shelf of Useless Junk. So that's fun.

Also, my professor has given me hope for the future: the bio final? NOT COMPREHENSIVE. Oh MAN that's music to my ears.

Oh! Tonight I get to go see Jesus Christ Superstar with the ORIGINAL TOURING CAST. One of my dad's friends is a huge nutter for that play, and he told dad about it who told me. So I get to go tonight, which will make up for the rest of today. I hope.

As far as RP goes: I'm going to app Nanny Ogg from Discworld at Mayfield, and Curly Brace from Cave Story at Zenithia. Then I will have six characters total and that will be all the apping I'll do for a while. ...Um, probably.

Now, Video games! I bought the Wii version of Cave Story, Prototype for Xbox 360, and WarioWare DIY. Cave Story is Cave Story and it is awesome, Prototype is...fun, but not really all that engaging just yet, and WarioWare DIY has given me the oddest complaint I've ever had with a video game but here it is:

Jimmy T has no butt.

Seriously, they make him an aerobics instructor, put him in a leotard, and don't give him any definition in his butt? He's a dancer! His hindquaters shouldn't be a line where his legs end! I know he's not muscled like Fabio, but he should have some tone down there!

...And then I realized that I was actually angry about Jimmy T's behind, and that I was picking apart why he should have visable buttcheeks. And then I cried.

So, tonight was the big awards dinner for the Mary Hull Award (I thought it was Hall all this time. Silly me) that my mom TOTALLY WON and blew everyone else away with her recorded speech because my mom is really great with public speaking and we got some pictures which I will post maybe if they turned out any good and dinner gave me gas.

It was pretty much the best time ever.

Oh, and my old high school Psych teacher won a Teacher of the Year Award, which she completely deserved.

I wish I could go into more detail about it but...all it really ended up being was "These Teachers are Awesome and You Get Cheesecake Because They're so Cool. Also Rotary Club" Which isn't a bad way to spend an evening, really.

Oh goodness, I have the begining stages of App-everything-itis, which I believe is called Wouldn't-it-be-cool-if-osis. I've considered picking up a fourth as SBG and I've thought of apping Big the Cat, Chibi-Robo, Dyna-Blade, Young Cricket, Blathers, and a lot more. My list of potential thirds at Zenithia is growing, and I can't get apping Munch at Trans 9 out of my head. Then there's the kissing game I wanted to start and aaaa I bearly do anything as it is what is even wrong with me?

Why did I get mail from the League of Conservative Voters when I'm a registered Democrat? Jealous I'm batting lefty, boys?

Sorry I haven't been online all that much lately. I've been busy with school, my job, RL friends, life, the universe, and everything. It'll probably be that way for the rest of the week too. I will see if I can make time.

I got the wrong textbook for my Tech Writing, but I don't think I can in good conscious sell this one back. Water damage, torn pages, highlighter marks...Yeah, this book sucks.

Monday was fun! We had a birthday party for my coolest-dude-ever boss and that was fun. Seriously, think of the coolest guy you know. My boss is probably, like, 50 times cooler then that. Probably. Then I went out with pals Tuesday and played Melee for three hours, and that was fun too. And now I'm off doing homework. That's not so much fun.

I went and changed my cell phone number because I got too many calls for other people, and I'm STILL getting calls. I guess I can never win with that. Ever.

So! It's 2010! Happy New Year, F-List!

I stayed up all last night and gorged on potato chips and chinese food and, leaving me pretty much wiped out for the day. Although I think part of it is boredom. I need to change up my routine a bit, but that'll be for another day, I think. Right now I have absolutely no idea what I wanna do, and I'm so very glad for that. I'm savoring my time off school, which is most delicious time indeed.

I might actually just go to sleep. I do have work tomorrow and boy do I wish I didn't so I should think about it at least.

SO! Today I:

-Overslept.
-Locked my keys in my locker and they had to cut it open.
-Got yelled at by a random guy for not having my headlights on, though they totally were. Scared me into thinking I needed replacement bulbs.
-Stepped on and broke my retainer, which costs $350 to replace.

Yeah, today was pretty much a total wash. I'm just going to play Brutal Legend for a while and then go to bed.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In September on a flight to Vancouver, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). In January I bought porn for [livejournal.com profile] pixle (10 points). In November I pulled [livejournal.com profile] hey_whitney's hair (-5 points). Last Wednesday I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last Thursday I gave [livejournal.com profile] soulrockcandy a kidney (1000 points).

Overall, I've been nice (957 points). For Christmas I deserve a Lego set!

Sincerely,
pseudo_parcel

My neck feels a tad better, but I'm still sort of nursing it. Thank you Advil, you are the ambrosia from the gods. Or would be, if you had worked at all.

I went through the whole work day yesterday thinking I was going to throw up and/or pass out the whole time. That was fun, so much so I want to excise the memory, with a power drill if necessary.

And then today I woke up with the phrase "Roleplay A-Go-Go" running through my head. That idea might need some poking at later, after I get home from school.

Ah, it's finally a real school year for me. You know how I know? I forgot an assignment. Not just any assignment, but a three page paper on whether or not World War II would've started without Hitler.

Three page papers aren't really all that hard, but they sure seem that way when you remember them at 11:00 at night just before you're about to fall asleep. That's the best way to remember an assignment; When you don't know if you have the mental capacity to write a sentence, let alone three pages.

I knew I'd do it eventually, so at least it's out of the way. Not to say I won't do it again at some point, but I always do it at least once.

I spent the rest of the morning after class getting my car taken car of (fill-up and oil change). It was actually a nice day, though I'm really kind of not looking forward to going to work tonight. It's just...going to be a long night tonight.
