How does this update thingy work again? *poke poke*
I'm a horrible updater! Now that my flist consists of less than 100 entries (a blessing and a curse--fewer fics to read), I actually have time for *gasp* other stuffs! Like updating! Not that I have too much of that to do, but whatever :)
Let's see where this update takes me...
A couple nights ago, I ended up staying on the computer until 5am. Let's just say I got a bit carried away with research (one of you out there knows what I mean) and...yeah. So I ran around (quietly) to get ready for bed before one of the parents noticed I was up. It was light outside and the birds were chirping. Unlike several of your out there (:P), it doesn't bother me in the least. I like the sounds of birdies :D
But a combonation of the frantic jump-into-bed-fall-asleep, the fact that 6/6/6 was over with, and the TB Magician's Nephew (Read by Kenneth Branagh--very wonderful) that I had been listening to gave me a terrible nightmare. Don't remember much about it except things were randomly exploding/becoming non-existant. Very freaky. And the nothing was pure black.
I had heard somewhere...isn't it true that when you are dreaming, you can't think 'this is so wierd, it must be a dream'? Well, during the dream, I had that thought, then completely freaked out because that, by what I remember being told, that meant the dream was real. I woke up a couple hours after I fell asleep with a bad case of the frights and shivers. Fuuunn *grumble*
Woke up again an hour later--around 8--and stretched. Big mistake. I had tried to get into the habit of no-big-stretches in the mornings. Why? Fucking leg cramp! 2 days later, my leg still feels like it had been punched hard.

1000+ fluffs at last!
Ah, it is the time of year for graduation again (grats to all the grads out there!)
So, tomorrow (aka friday) I am heading over to my HS to practice playing the band songs. I was planning on going to graduation on Saturday, and figure I might as well make myself useful and play along. I have played all the songs before (need to refresh my memory and learn which parts I need to pretend to play, hehe). I need to be at the school at 1:30 tomorrow (damn, I hope I have the right time). I took an hour vacation from work to do it, too. (I have 58 vacation hours, and it maxes at 60. Might as well use them).
I am getting all nervous thinking about it :( I love playing in band, but I hate socializing with people, or people doing the 'who are you?' thing. Last year was the first year I hadn't been to graduation since 7th grade--10 years ago o.0 Scary how time flys! I've been playing flute for over 10 years!
Damn, my thoughts are all over the place, hehe. I start with one topic, and cram like 3 in one paragraph.
Back to graduation. The last friend I have in school is graduating. She is giving a farewell speech. I wish I got to talk to her more. She has no internet at home, only though the school, and then we only talk to schedule time for band practice/games. She swung by the library one to drop off some music with me, and we talked for like a half hour, despite the fact I was supposed to be working. And we were in a spot where everyone could hear us, too *cringes* I like private conversations. So, not able to talk of slash at all. I printed off a few pieces to give her tomorrow.
Uh, back to original thought of that paragraph...since she is graduating, the last person in band that I talk to is Amy, and she will be in 8th grade I think (shit I feel old). Anyways, this last year, she has turned into one of those little fashion nuts. Into style, clothing, makeup. *gag* So I don't think I will be talking to her much. So, next year if I go to games, I will be pretty much sitting by myself. There are a few people who I joked with, but I think most are graduating as well.
Guess I could go for a few games, if only to have people ask me what grade I am in. Yeah, most don't believe me that I have graduated.Fandom related
--hmmmm, maybe I should put this first, so people will actually read it...oh well lol, bolding will have to do.
I completed one of the 2 birthday fics I have been trying to work on. 2 people on my flist have the same BD as me (25th), so I wanted to write up a little something for them. Quite pleased with the first result--Wilson strips for House. So expect that and (hopefully) the other if it behaves itself to appear around the 25th of this month.
I soooo need a new computer. Got the go-ahead from Mom to get a new one (I bitch so much about this one that she finally got the hint). I think I will wait until the end of this month. One thing that troubles me, is my printer. I think I lost the install disk that came with it, so I don't know if I will be able to get it to work for the new one?
I mentioned somewhere ^up^ ^there^ that I was listening to The Magician's Nephew on talking book. I got a set from the library that has all the Narnia books. Each book is read by a different person. Kenneth Branagh is awesome. I wish he did more talking books, really a joy to listen to.
*wonders why she is babbling for 45 minutes when can be listening to talking book*
I guess I will wrap this up with a bye, bye :)
