I used a hair removal cream for my face and I think I wiped it off too hard because the skin is raw and in paaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiin. I see bits of red and even tiny bits of blood on the ice pack I put on it. I think I rubbed the top layer of skin right off 0_o I put some Neosporin on the area because it has a numbing thing in it. So I think I'll stop using that cream! I've only used it maybe twice before and the results were never impressive anyway. I'll pay for waxing if I have to. Hey Zeus.

In better news, my friend should be coming down tomorrow night because we're seeing Frankenstein on Saturday. While she's here, I'm planning on making these Sloppy Buffalo Joes (OMGSOGOOD), these cupcakes because I effing love them, and these oatmeal chocolate chip pudding cookies which I've never made before but in all descriptions people say they're crack so they must be good! I was just browsing more recipes and I think I might make these for breakfast. So many ideas. So little time.

And I might be going to my dad's the weekend of 4/23 so my sister and I can have a Doctor Who party. We're going to watch the premiere and make cupcakes or something. I don't know yet. Red Velvet probably. My sister is addicted to that shit.

Feeling a little off today. One of those days where everything sort of hits you at once. Also, the friend who's getting married went dress shopping and such today with friends and family. Didn't say a single thing about it to me. I love how she gets on my ass about not reaching out (which I have been trying to get better at) but she seems to make no effort at all. I heard about all this through a mutual friend and Facebook. We used to be best friends. I know we've grown apart over the years but I wish she would either make an effort or stop pretending. We wouldn't be friends if we had just met. All we have in common is the past. The problem is, I don't know how much I really care. I don't like talking on the phone in general, but with her, she'll tell you everything in her life but if you try to talk about your problems, she can't be arsed to care. I'm so sorry my pathetic life of being unemployed and taking care of my mom isn't exciting for you and your perfect fairy tale you're living in. I have become something of a recluse (bordering on hikikomori) lately, and sometimes I need a little push. But if you want me to, I can try to make the effort. And I know we're all old enough to have our own lives and problems. I'm not expecting it to be like it was when we were still in school. Not like it would matter. The thought of being alone with her just makes me nervous. We'd have nothing to talk about and I hate small talk. I'm thankful for the few friends I do have and the time I spend with them. I just... don't care and still care quite a bit about this friendship. I've known her for what? 16 years. Since 3rd grade. It sucks thinking that it could be over.

Lately I feel like it's just my immediate family (mom, brother, grandma) and me. I barely even see or talk to my sister, dad, and stepmom. With my mom hurt, me unemployed, and my brother and me taking care of our grandma every day... I'm just having a low day is all. A poor/woe is me day.

I did make blueberry muffins from scratch today, using this recipe. They are yummy! I ate like 6 of them so far. I love baking/cooking. I find it relaxing.

And I just 'ordered' a $50 check using some of my credit card points. I think I'm going to buy myself this Starfleet sweatshirt.

Even though I haven't even posted yet...
ETA: Sometimes the universe answers your call. Another friend just messaged me on FB asking if I wanted to get breakfast and hang out tomorrow. I feel like a dick for complaining when I do really have some great friends.
spacemonkeyluvn: (xtra:: keep calm and have a cuppa)
Today I was finally able to visit this Irish bakery and get the pastie I've been craving FOREVER. I got two - one for today and one for tomorrow - but now I'm wishing I had gotten more. Mmmm... so good.

Had a friend cancel on me today (for a very good reason) but instead of being all anti-social, I called another friend and asked what she was doing. I still had to give her her Christmas present anyway. So I went downtown, peeked into Lush and treated myself to some King of the Mods since I haven't had any in ages and I really love it, read for a bit until she got off work and met up with her. Her hubby picked us up and we had a lovely dinner and watched two movies, the first one being really good ('Exit Through the Gift Shop') and the other being not-so-great ('Grimm').

Tomorrow, or I guess today now, I have one more movie to watch and then I think I'm going to spend the rest of the day watching Sherlock, Doctor Who, White Collar, IDK. Maybe I'll start some of those shows I've been meaning to watch. I should also probably read some Sherlock fic. I haven't felt like reading lately, so I've been saving links and I have quite a few saved up.

Also, totally woke up with this playing in my brain -

This is my friend's daughter, Sophia. Not my Goddaughter, but the other one. You guys. I can't handle the cute. I'm going to have to steal her and raise her as my own ;)

Friend and I went to see Paranormal Activity 2 last night. I haven't been to a movie on a Friday night in forever. I forgot just how crowded it could get. And how expensive it is. Anyhoo, the movie was surprisingly scary. More so than the first one. At least in my humble opinion. It's like they kept what was really creepy about the first one and left out the ridiculous bits that turned it from 'realistically' scary to bad sci-fi movie. I don't know if that sentence makes sense, but all I'm trying to say is that PA2 is a very creepy movie. And it explains the events of the first one to some degree. Although the idea of weird-ass things happening for no reason might actually be scarier. Whatever. Good movie. Large crowd with good energy. Fun times had by all.

And then on the way home, my friend tells me about something that happened near where I live. A cemetery worker in Colma, Calif., has discovered two plastic jars containing human hearts half buried in a remote section of the town's massive cemetery, according to police. Let's just say that last night wasn't the best night's sleep I've ever had ;)

The town of Colma has approximately 1,500 residents, but more than 1.5 million people are buried in the cemetery, leading to Colma to be dubbed the City of the Dead.

I should point out that we don't just have a cemetery. We have many.

Work was a sucky thing today. Might have thrown a little bitch-fit. Not in front of anyone exactly, but it's getting harder and harder to fake happiness there.

RL is also kind of sucking like a sucking thing right now. *le sigh* Some of it is at least partly my fault, but I just don't know how to stop. I'm having some trouble with depression lately and I find I'm losing interest in most things. Including my friends. I just don't feel connected to anyone any more. I hung out with a friend yesterday and had to fake smiles and laughs. I just didn't want to be there. Conversation was a struggle for me. My sleep/work schedule isn't helping matters. At all. And the fact that my birthday is in a week and a day is just making things worse. Haven't really been speaking to friends (no time or energy, and really, nothing to say) and now feel even worse about being alone. Aaaaand I've been eating such shite lately that I think it's really making me ill.

I'm trying really REALLY hard not to read/see any Doctor Who spoilers. While I'd love to squee and such with fandom, I want to be surprised. I want to keep the magic alive. I want to experience it for the first time when it airs as a completed thing.

Still more than a little in love with Sherlock. Spend all my time online reading fanfic like I haven't done in ages. Fanfic, fanvids, picspams, etc. Lovin' it.

PS I won 1st place in the header contest at [ profile] sherlockland!

I had to work this morning even though it was supposed to be my day off. And I'll be working the rest of the week, New Year's Eve and Day included. Ugh. So Tired. And not feeling well (possible UTI). Plus, it's never really a picnic at home either. I could really do with like a week off in a row. And not just because I'm recovering from surgery. I should shower, but I don't want to get out of bed. It's not even 6pm and I'm ready to fall asleep. Except for the fact that my mother is playing Rock Band.

I saw some old high school friends the other day. We all had brunch together. It was nice to see them again, but it felt like that scene in Friends where I ordered one of the cheapest items because I'm poor, but we all ended up splitting the bill evenly. I wanted to say something, but we only do this like once a year, so I let it slide. Plus tip, I ended up spending about $22 for a waffle. It was a nice place, but fuck that. Next time, let's meet at IHOP or Denny's.

Doctor/Master audio clip from 'The End of Time, Part 2'. Is it Friday yet?! I don't know if I can take all this. I haven't really been talking about TV, even though I've been watching it, but I quite enjoyed 'The End of Time, Part 1.' It was cracky and ridiculous, but it worked. It's darker than normal, but give me Master/Doctor and I'm good with just about anything. I'm easy like that. I'm scared for Friday though. We already know how it ends, sort of, and I'm not sure I'm ready to see/experience that. I've already watched Part 1 at least twice, which is rare for me, so close together. Lately, the only thing I've been rewatching is White Collar. I also rewatched the latest ep of House because I'm craving the Holmes/Watson & House/Wilson dynamic ♥

Random bit: I noticed it while watching it the first time, but I really love the soundtrack to Sherlock Holmes.

Also, not my proudest moment, but this made me LOL: from

Okay, this entry is all over the place and making little sense. I think it's time for a shower and nap.
spacemonkeyluvn: (dn:: Ryuk)

I was supposed to go to breakfast with my friend tomorrow, but she can't make it. And my other friends are either working or live too far away. Stupid friends with stupid lives, SOs, and/or babies ;) I guess I'll just spend the next two days watching movies in bed. Not a bad way to spend my days off, but it's nice to see your friends every now and then.


New Merlin.

Instead of having to pay for a taxi to take me home from work, I got picked up by my mom and her high school friend and we all went for dinner.

Also, coming home and reading this on my sister's Facebook <3 asked me "If you had to defend your hometown against invading zombies, what would be your weapon of choice?"
I answered: "i would get my sister b/c she has a book on how to defend yourself from zombies xD"

And a meme from a bunch of my flist:

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. So ask me something you want to know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.

I made French toast with bananas foster (sans the alcohol) on top for breakfast. Mmmmm... so good.

I had another bubble tea today with lunch. My momma brought it to my work ^_^

After reading those two points, I realize I really do need to get back to eating better. Whoops! I'm drunk with power. The power to eat without wanting to die 6 hours later. It's a good, but dangerous, power.

I signed up for the VISA and got The Middleman for free! (I need to start working on my credit anyway.) Now I just have to wait for it to be delivered. *waits*

I may have just eagerly awaited/watched a new episode of JONAS tonight. I can't bring myself to be embarrassed though. Not when one of Joe's excuses to not go out is because he has to stay in and trim his eyebrows <3

Tomorrow is my day off. I'm going to watch movies, TV, maybe swim a little, pay some medical bills, organize my bills, etc. My sister is going to the Jonas Bros concert in San Jose tomorrow night and I might be a little jealous :P I told her to take pictures for me. She humors me and I love her for it.

I think that's all that is new with me. I'm going over to my friend's on Friday so I can see her and the baby again. Our other friend is supposed to be coming too, so that'll be nice. Not quite the same get-togethers we used to have, but still fun.
spacemonkeyluvn: (d&j:: HUG ME BROTHA!)
Not by blood, but I've known the mother for about 16 years. Which totally counts :P

7 lbs 10oz and born at 4:12 am, I believe.

When I saw Natasha, I started tearing up. I've known Renata, the mother, since 3rd grade. I still can't believe she's a mother and that this little life is her child.

My mom picked me up after work and drove me to the hospital to see them. (My mom had actually gone to see her and bring balloons on her lunch break.) Our other friend, Lexis, was there too. Her and Nata have known each other since like kindergarten. We've been BFFs since forever, it feels like.

We stayed until after visiting hours were over and they were about to kick us out. We just sat around talking and watching telenovelas on the TV. It's rare these days for all three of us to get together at the same time, so it was nice to be all together again. We're going to go see her again tomorrow (after Lexis drags me to see Orphan).

Natasha is so adorable and precious. I can't wait until I can babysit and spoil her rotten :D
