So I don't know what is going on, but I'm in a damn good mood right now. I had to get up early today for a doctor's appointment, but it went well. I wasn't happy with the doctor I had chosen before so I had to look up another in the same area that took my insurance and was accepting new patients. Knowing nothing about who I was getting, I picked a name and made an appointment. I wish I had done that ages ago (you know, since I won't have a job or insurance in about a week). My previous doctor didn't really listen to what I was telling him and I felt like he was very dismissive. New doctor listened, took me seriously, I had blood drawn and tomorrow morning I have to call to set up an ultrasound. Unfortunately if there IS something, I won't have enough time to really do anything about it, but at least I can know one way or another? I don't know, but I definitely like this doctor A LOT better.

I listened to a new podfic on the way to the hospital. Had time to finish it and everything! Great story by [ profile] messageredacted and great reading by [ profile] pandarus. After the appointment (they took my blooooood), my mom was actually able to pick me up and drop me off at work saving me time and money (didn't have to wait/pay for bus). I got Quinos for lunch but still had time to kill so I went into Spirit (the Halloween store) and bought a fake black rose, a creepy laughing pumpkin keychain, and these awesome earrings.

Work was whatever.

Come home to all new Community (ABED. All caps.), It's Always Sunny, Sh*t My Dad Says (which I still haven't watched an episode of), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (NOEL!), and A History of Horror with Mark Gatiss (new to me). AND I find out that The Hobbit is a go and Martin Freeman is officially going to be Bilbo Baggins!!♥!!

Finally: ♥

1. My sister (15) has a friend who she calls a mini me because she's a geek and into many of the same things I am. I guess she convinced my sister to watch some Doctor Who because she was texting me quotes from the show ('Are you my mummy?'). And I just read her FB status which says "just watched Dr. Who with friends for 9 hours xD but its a feakin awesome show :P"

I just thought of something. My sister now knows who Captain Jack Harkness is 0_o

2. There's an interview with Matt Smith in the new Radio Times (he's interviewed by a 13 year old boy) and one of his answers made me love him even more than I thought possible. I like Sinatra all right (that's more my brother's thing), but Atlantis AND dinosaurs?! *clutches heart* I've been saying for YEARS that if I had a real time machine, one of the first things I'd do is go back to see what the dinosaurs REALLY looked like. And Atlantis is a not-so-secret 'obsession' of mine.

3. White Collar!

4. This was actually from a couple days ago, but trailer for the new 'Sherlock' series from BBC (and Moffat!)

5. And also slightly older news: Joe Jonas is going to be on 'Hot in Cleveland'

6. Looks like ThinkGeek has moved the expected date of more sonic screwdrivers up from 8/4 to 7/27. I don't want to get my hopes up but squeeeeeeeeeeee!

7. Series 5 is now available for pre-order!

Things that made today a good day:

1. It was my day off from work
2. My 'I Love You Phillip Morris' book came in the mail
3. I made (and then promptly ate) homemade baked mac-n-cheese (with stewed tomatoes, mmmmmmm!)
4. I painted my nails gold
5. I finally finished My Fair Lady

Spoilers for My Fair Lady. Also, possibly a little image heavy. )

Sorry for the emotastic update the other day. I wouldn't say I'm bipolar, but it's amazing how I can go from 'FML' to 'I love life!' so quickly and often. Anyhoo, I love lists. Like, to an unhealthy degree I'm sure. I need to get my act together and figure out what I need to do to change my circumstances. What steps I need to take, how long it might take to get there, etc. I need to be proactive and not just lie there and play the victim like my mother.

Some good things that happened today:

* I went to my Goddaughter's baptism. I am soooo not the most religious person, even out of people my friend knows, so it's an honor to be asked. I'm happy to be involved in Natasha's life in any way <3

* I got to hang out with 3 of my best friends today and two of their babies. I spent a good 10 minutes hitting a balloon to make Sophia laugh :D

* Even though I've known my friend's family for about 15 years, her parents, brother (Godfather), and husband kept saying 'Welcome to the family' :)

* Wore a cute outfit, ate good food, saw friends and family, got out of the house. Not a bad day off.

* House and Merlin marathons on today! Even if I didn't really get to watch any of them.

* I got my cell phone rebate in the mail - $100!

Tomorrow I'm going to get up early so I can call the Disability office and try to figure this all out. I'm also going to return some of the stuff I bought but haven't used yet. I'd rather save $$ right now. I hate unexpected expenses, but at least I have some $ saved and I'm working towards my goal (whatever that might be). I just have to get my priorities straightened out and work on my impulse spending. I've gotten better, but I could still use some more self control.

Oh, and this happened <3 :

spacemonkeyluvn: (toma:: take a breath then...)
I had this whole long entry about how depressed and miserable I've been lately, but I don't really feel like talking about that right now. Today was much better than yesterday (which was one of the worst days of my life) and I just want to focus on the good right now. (*NOTE: I actually wrote this yesterday, but had no energy to finish/post it)

* I just got a new cell phone - LG enV Touch )

* Toma's first movie coming out on the 20th is both happy news and less-than-happy news. Happy because we're getting all sorts of promotions and interviews with him. Less-than-happy because I'll know it's out, but I have no idea just how long I'll have to wait to see it. Especially with subs.

* Nick J's solo CD continues to make me happy. And sad. Either way, I'm enjoying it immensely.

* I want to be more like Joe. That is a sweet ass ride right there.

* Nick and Joe went on a bro-date for ice cream and their preciousness makes me happy. In my soul.

* Each interview with Toma just makes me love him more. He's so passionate about acting and he takes each job/role so seriously. He understands just how lucky he is to be where he's at now. He says that he isn't one of those people who were born to act, and chances come and go, but the important thing is to do the best in what you're doing now, give it your all. He wants to be the perfect actor. I just worry about him being too harsh on himself. He's a perfectionist and he seems somewhat anal, so I hope he just takes care of himself and has fun. Which he does seem to do, thankfully.

He also goes from being serious and admitting that he sometimes feels the pressure is 'scary' to then saying things like:


Anyway, I'm feeling slightly better now. I'm still tired and cranky (plus mildly depressed and suffering from allergies), but it could be worse. If I have the energy, I'll post a picspam of happiness on V-day, but we'll see. I always threaten picspams and then never follow through :) I managed to get Sunday off so I could go to a friend's anti-Valentine's Day party (where she was semi trying to set me up), but I just don't think I'll feel up to human contact by then.
spacemonkeyluvn: (jonas:: Joe approved)
Today was a good day. Apparently some cute guy checked me out/flirted with me today at work. However, I had no idea because I'm clueless like that. He bought a gift card, and after he left my boss was like "That guy was totally checking you out." And I made this face 0_0 She said she saw him looking at me and he noticed her looking at him (looking at me). She said she was telling me in her head "Look up. Smile." But like I said, I'm clueless in that area. When I helped him out though, I did notice that he was kind of cute. And then at Starbucks, after work, the lady taking my order called me 'beautiful' which made me :)

Also, I got out of work 2 hours earlier than originally scheduled; I had a delicious meal with my boss; I have a peppermint mocha from Starbucks; the company who owns the store I work at gave everyone a $20 VISA gift card; we're closing earlier than planned on Christmas Eve; it's almost Christmas; my dad, stepmom, and sister are coming over for Christmas Eve dinner and we're going to be watching their dog, Willy, while they're in DC (xmas to new years); I have Monday off (after having worked 7 days in a row this week); I have new Merlin and Never Mind the Buzzcocks to watch; I finally finished One Fine Day and I absolutely loved it; I'm going to be getting a new phone soon (which is good because the other day mine did some weird countdown thing and then turned itself off); I finally named my laptop Nakatsu; and there's more, but I'm too hyped up on caffeine and sugar to think properly.

If you guys really want to get me something, #1 on my Christmas list:

Also, I just sent out my Christmas cards. I've been a little distracted by RL, and I'm sorry if you get them after Christmas. But if you asked for one, you're getting one!
spacemonkeyluvn: (toma:: Tomapi hug)
It seems like things are really shitty for people right now. Let me just take a second to give you all a big, virtual hug - *HUG*

Things are quite shitty in my neck of the woods as well, and I'll admit that I've been sort of wallowing in self pity lately. There are a lot of worries with work (as in, I don't know how much longer I'll be working there), I have less money in my account than I've had since I started working (the holidays will do that), stress at home, and just your basic depression. I don't know. I'm still mostly enjoying things, but I don't feel like I have enough energy to share my joy/love. Hell, lately I haven't even been talking much IRL. A happy [ profile] spacemonkeyluvn is one who doesn't/won't shut up, and I've barely been talking to friends or anybody.

Things that are happy-making:

* I got my first Christmas card yesterday. Thank you, [ profile] arathesane!!

* Another pictures of the Toma/Pi hug, and from a different angle. Toma just looks so happy. )

* This picture taken by Dave Brown (aka Bollo) - 'Lazy lights. Genius'

* NSFW yet still somehow adorable Boondock Saints Q&A in which Norm gets teased for never talking, Sean is a dork and takes pictures of the crowd to show his mother, and they call Billy Connolly but get his voicemail. Oh, and I really want to know if the donut story is true or not.

* Community, especially the tags at the end of the episodes. Abed&Troy are too adorkable for words.

* Adam Lambert's 'For Your Entertainment'

* This Mighty Boosh photoshoot, though I wish they didn't have watermarks :(

* These boys: Kevin looks like a normal boy, Joe looks special (and why that hair cut?), and Nick looks a little possessed there. Bless.

There's probably more but I'm too cold, tired, and meh to think any more. Time for a shower, sleep, and then the dreaded work day. *le sigh*

Snagged from [ profile] mrowrr -

The Rules:
1. Post about something that made you happy today.
2. Repeat for eight days.
3. Tag eight people to do the same. (I never tag. Feel free to copy/paste if you feel you need a little extra happy in your life.)

Day One

* The Maou fanvid 'My World' (major spoilers for the whole show though)

* Heroes season finale next week looks good (Petrelli bro!love is back <3) and House is taking an interesting turn...

* I was so stressed yesterday trying to get something sorted only to finally get it finished and then get a call which might mean it wasn't actually finished. Turned out it was a customer service call and they just wanted to know how everything went ^_^

* I had delicious ravioli for dinner (and gyoza and chocolate soy milk for breakfast)

* Somebody subbed one of Toma's recent appearances already. I just watched it in Japanese yesterday. I <3 the internet.

* This:

spacemonkeyluvn: (dn:: Ryuk)
I had to make an entry in my personal journal so I could vent and get all emo (mostly) about my home life. There might have been some work thrown in for good measure. And health for fun. I haven't felt the need to make one of those entries since December. *le sigh* Time to watch some comfort TV I guess. Maybe SG1? I haven't watched an episode in forever.

I was also going to go watch I Love You, Man tomorrow since it's my day off, but now I kind of feel like just staying home in bed.

ETA: Fuck being depressed. A couple random things that are making me happy right now:

* I won't be getting much, but it looks like I will be getting some money back after taxes

* I couldn't decide on anything to watch, so I'm going to watch Clueless

* Watching this never fails to make me smile. However I don't know if it's because I like the music so much or because it amuses me that Toma is a camera whore and sings along to the instruments/music (I thought I was the only one who did that) ^_^

* The Boosh premieres on Adult Swim in like 4 days

* New Dwarf and new Toma!drama next month!!
spacemonkeyluvn: (toma:: *poke*)
Tomorrow is the last day of my work week and come 4pm I don't work again until Monday!

My friend is getting married in 3 days!!

[ profile] miss_trombone, I got the package earlier this week but forgot to say thank you. Thank you! ^_^

Brief (4 second) commercial for Toma's new drama. Next month - I can't wait!!!!! And LOL to everyone freaking out over Toma's hair.

I joined some random forum last night just so I could get the full size Toma pictures. Some of my favorites. )
