saifai: (Kitty Birthday (allbottledup))
Woo! Has it really been that long since I posted? Long enough for most to write me off I imagine. O.o Truthfully my migraines have been kicking my ass. Turns out they are hemiplegic, which means its like a stroke when I get one.

The actual day
But back to happier news. My birthday was awesome. It was my week to cook, so I made my own birthday dinner. So I made chicken fajitas. I ordered chocolate covered strawberries from Sherri's Berries for my dessert. Truthfully, the only present I got was from myself. Presents on the way from family though. But I made my birthday order from Sephora and got my haul today too. Got an awesome deal on Charlotte Ronson lip gloss and Urban Decay eyeliner. Added in a new desert colors palette (like I don't have too many already). There were a few other odds and ends, but those three were favs.

The entertainment
This weekend we're going for our annual birthday meal and a movie. Usually its lunch, but this year its breakfast because I'm dying to have a cinnamon roll from a nearby cafe. Those things are huge, and so yummy! We're seeing either Elysium (my choice) or Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Mom's been trying to get me to see it.

Mom is funny

Some of her co-workers were asking after our plans. Some know of our annual film fest. So she tells them we're going to see Elysium because "Rhonda likes Matt Damon." Before they can answer, she follows that up with "...and a high body count."

"Do you mean dead bodies?" One of her coworkers asked her very hesitantly.

Of course she answered with a very cheerful "Yup!" Then she turned and walked away before they could really process it.

She's pretty sure her coworkers think I'm very odd. And in case you were wondering, she was referencing my love of action movies.

She's a funny lady. :-)

Houston, we lost the internetz!!!
Has been a bit of an odd day for me. Last night around 8pm a massive wind storm swept through our area. Winds at 40mph (64 kph) with gusts of up to 65 mph (104). At least that's what they say. Downed power lines, power surges, fires, falling trees.

It was a fun night. We lost power about 9pm, and it didn't come back on again until 4:30am the next morning. The problem though is that though we had power, half the city had been without last night (the peak was something like 60,000 customers out of power). By the time we got our power back on, they still had over 20,000 still out.

Our internet company didn't get their power back on until very late in the day (maybe some time after 9pm). Internets... OOOH how I MISS you!!!!! *tacklesgloms*

Birthday Fun
First, a big thank you to the folks that sent me birthday wishes. Thank goodness for my Blackberry so I could at least see them! :) As for my Birthday fun, my Mom and I spent a quiet day chatting and reading books. Not much else to do. We'd had plans to see a movie and eat out, but we weren't sure who all would have power. Next weekend we'll see a movie together. Tonight we just splurged on dinner at Wendy's (Mmm, gotta have my bacon cheeseburger).

Oh! We watched a movie my Mom bought quite awhile back. "Old Dogs" with Seth Green (who should get top billing as a rule, because he's adorable), John Travolta, and Robin Williams. Very odd combination. Pretty sure the rest of the Travolta family were in it as well, oddly enough. Started out slow, but turned out pretty funny by the end. And also very sweet. Kept having the urge to chuck Travolta's character off a bridge throughout the film, but by the end I managed to resist and give him a reprieve. Worth a watch for a funny and relaxing movie night with the family.

All in all it was a relaxing night, and we had fun just reading, watching films, and chatting about anything and everything.

Hope everyone else had a good day too! Now, I'm off to bed before the sleeping pills make me ramble anymore than they already have. *waves*

Saying Happy Birthday to LJ, a day late. I've been a bit behind lately due to RL. Taking a break from the current hoopla going on with Tokio Hotel to share with you my first TWO posts (since the first one was so short). Bringing you back to August of 2003:
21 August 2003 @ 01:16 pm
Thanks to Kristen ([livejournal.com profile] miggy)for her post that helped me to get started. Once I get a hang of all this, I suppose I'll try customizing the look of the journal. You can expect to see my ramblings here. If I've finished a story, but have yet to post it, you'll see it here. Links to my sites will be added if there's something of interest to see there when I update. More on this later...


21 August 2003 @ 05:16 pm
I finally wrote (and posted) my first fan fiction. This was actually inspired by another story I read (when I find a link for it I'll post it). I got to thinking what would Spike and Xander have in their junk drawer?

( Read more... )

Why yes, that is my very first fanfic, why do you ask? LOL - Still love that one. Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kyrieane and [livejournal.com profile] txrabbit (at least I think it was them) who badgered me into writing it, and also pushed me towards wanting to get this whole LJ started in the first place. Also to [livejournal.com profile] miggy who gave me the leg up.

Getting ready to go out and see a movie with new friends. Monsters and Aliens or something. Sounds cute.

Hope everyone's doing well, and that you're weekend will be a good one!

Happy Birthday to [livejournal.com profile] fantomeq, [livejournal.com profile] vehiclesshockme, [livejournal.com profile] fitofpique, and [livejournal.com profile] eyezrthewindows!!! Hope you guys have wonderful days full of lots of things on your wish lists. :)

Question: Anyone remember that botched Navy SEALs operation from back in the 90s I think it was? There had been a US news crew that were on the beach waiting for the crew as they were coming on shore for some sort of secret operation. They was a big todo about lines crossed and all that. I was trying to track old new archives about it but couldn't remember the date, the news corporations involved, or the location of the operation. Anyone remember details?

Hubby gave me my presents. I had actually gotten some early, like a painting a friend of mine did, and two new knives to add to my collection. He also gave me Lorne! It's an autographed pic of Lorne - and it's ALL MINE! Hubby loves me. I'll scan the pics of the autograph and painting later so ya'll can see.

Yup. It's my birthday. I got my birthday dinner last night: shrimp cocktail, steak, sautéed mushrooms, and veggies. This morning hubby woke me up with the traditional "wake up present" (it was a switchblade with a picture of a wolf on the handle). Tonight, it's dinner out at a restaurant (I picked Red Robin because I haven't been there in forever - and have you ever tasted their mud pie???). I think maybe a movie too, but I'm not sure yet. Exciting, huh?

Everyone's trying so hard to make it a happy day for me, but I honestly just don't... I dunno. I just don't want to be older I guess. The closer I get to 30 the more I feel like a fool for how I've lived my life in the past. I don't feel like I've done enough. I'm not where I want to be considering how long I've been out of school. Does that make any sense? Maybe tomorrow I'll feel different.
