Hey everyone!

I think I'm going to take a slight hiatus from LJ for a bit. Offline life has gotten a bit crazy and I have some projects that need to be taken care of. I'll be back very, very soon and I'll miss you all.

*hugs to f-list

And it's nothing bad, just need to get my priorities straight and stop procrastinating.

Resolutions

I tend not to stick to resolutions. Every year, millions of us say we'll lose weight, get organized, have more time for family or whatever it is that we think needs improving and every year resolutions are broken within a few months.

I've decided not to do the typical resolutions. So, I vowed to do three things this year...

1. Eat healthier. I could lie to myself and say that I'll do a lot more exercise and eat only organic products, but reality is a bitch and I know that will never happen. This covers a lot for me and I've been slowly changing my eating habits and it's working well.

2. Be happy. I just want to be happy. I don't care about having more money or being able to go on vacation, I want to wake up and be content with my life and myself.

3. Write more! I know that this will thrill my fellow bah. I've been horribly neglectful and I want to do better. I won't put limits on how much I'll get done, so this way I can write because I enjoy it and want to improve.

One of my friends emailed their resolutions list to me and my eyes almost fell out of my head. She has over 40 resolutions. 40! And I know her, she feels overwhelmed constantly and I can't believe she will stress herself needlessly. I told her to be a bit more realistic and cut a few out. Her response? "My life is a mess and I need all of them to get back on track." I feel so bad for her because by April she'll be a gibbering mess and maybe three of her resolutions will stick until the end of the year. She won't listen though, and she does this every year.

Oh well. I hope everyone had a wonderful NYE and will have a happy and prosperous 2009.

I know that for some, 2008 really sucked. I hope that 2009 is better. Have a safe and happy New Year!

So, I've mentioned it a few times recently that my lovely SO lost my camera cord thingy. I can't upload pictures to the internet and it makes me sad.

So, went to Target and found a very nice guy (and pretty cute too) and asked him if they sold cord thingys... of course they don't and suggested I try Best Buy. Now, this makes me happy because I love Best Buy and it also makes me sad because I love Best Buy. I always end up spending way too much money there when I only go in to the store for one thing. Argh! I have to walk through my hand shielding my view to either side so I don't get tempted. Damn you Best Buy!

In other news, the wonderful ferret that joined us for Christmas? He has been placed in a wonderful home and that makes me so very happy. My mom would have loved to keep him, but has no clue how to care for a ferret and probably would have killed him. He will be well taken care of and I was told that it was one of the volunteers from the SPCA that adopted him. Yay! If I can find my damn camera cord thingy, I will post pictures of him.

And, I have a few new friends! Hi!!!! I don't expect anyone to comment and I don't perform friend cuts. I'm happy to have any new friends around that will put up with me. LOL.

Christmas was very interesting this year.

It got really long... )

Merry Christmas!








Okay, I'm awful about Christmas cards... so, they will be on the way, but more like New Year's cards because I'm a lazy and broke ass. I'm so sorry everyone.

It snowed again today. The day before yesterday it snowed a little bit... didn't really stick on my side of town but it did in northwest/west and there were some great pics on the news. Today, I went to my mom's because she wanted to go to a movie. Okay, no problem. Left my apartment and noticed some snow falling, not a lot... reminded me of the other day so I figured it wouldn't be so bad today. Boy was I wrong.

My mom lives off Las Vegas Blvd South past Pebble. We were going to the movies at the South Point which is not far at all from her place. We get in her car (I left my car at her house parked in visitor parking) and we drove to the end of her block and the snow was just coming down hard. Of course my mom is like a little kid, so she's squealing and oohing and awwwing over the wonderful snow. We get to the casino, park and go inside. We just made it to watch the previews and settled ourselves in. After the movie, we went to the front doors and my jaw just dropped. There was so much snow! A lot of cars were just buried and I knew that getting my car scraped off was going to be loads of fun. Now I know that we're nothing like the Northeast and the crazy amount of snow that they get, but this is Vegas. It rarely snows here. I think the last time it did was 2004. So about every four or five years we get snow. LOL.

I did take a few pictures, but no camera cord thingy to download them yet, so once I get one I'll put them up.

Here's a question for my flist. What's the weather like where you're from?

Okay, so I haven't updated... well I have, but not really updated what's going on in my life so here we go.

Ummm. As you all might know, I quit my job in October. It's been pretty nice not having to work, but I am getting a bit antsy. Spoke to my old boss (not from this previous job, the one before that) and he told me that they won't be hiring until close to Christmas. Okay, I can understand that. The economy is shit and jobs are really hard to come by nowadays. I'm not too worried, but like I said, getting antsy.

My mom was sick for a week. Really sick. I felt so bad for her. The normal remedies were tried. Chicken soup, cough drops, Nyquil, etc. but nothing was helping. She went to work Friday night and they sent her home after hearing her froggy voice. LOL. So, at least she got some more rest.

Found out that I ran out of stamps. Sheesh. So, will have to buy more. The cards will be sent out, I promise. LOL.

I am reading the Twilight books. My thoughts, not a complete rant... )

Turkey!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
emma_moon: (Sparkling Holiday Tree)
It might be a little early to worry about this, but I decided to just go ahead and make the post now. As [livejournal.com profile] mugglewitch1 can tell you, I procrastinate like woah so I'm hoping if I actually put this post up now I'll get off my ass and actually get cards out on time for once.

So, if you would like a Christmas card, please give me your address. Bah, the majority of you will need to give me your addresses again since I can't find my damn address book. Argh. I'd love to get lots of responses so I can send out lots of cards.

Comments will be screened of course.

May your night be bright and full of candy!
emma_moon: (Stewie WTF)



What the hell is on her head? It looks like a skunk crawled up there and died.





Ummmmm. I really don't know what to say about Fenrir... It's better than I thought it could be, but also silly looking. Better than the dead skunk on top of Narcissa's head. Good lord.

I want some Lavender and Oliver fan fiction. I wrote Lavender in a Harry Potter RPG and my very good friend, nink, wrote Oliver. It was an awesome storyline and I began to love the character of Lavender (even though she was a love crazed floozy in HBP) and I saw the potential for her character.

I wonder if there is any good fan fiction out there. I did try FF.net... it was not encouraging. LOL. So, if anyone on my glorious f-list knows of any Lavender/Oliver fan fic, or would be willing to write some for me (bats eyes and smiles) I would lurve you forever.

I went to Disneyland last week. Had a blast! I do have pictures... well, some pictures, but I can't find my damn camera cord thingy to transfer the pictures from my camera to the computer. Looks like I have to go buy one. *grumps

It was pretty warm in California. I was pretty surprised at that because it's freaking October. I don't like to wear shorts, and I get teased about it from my friends because of it. I hate my legs and their pasty whiteness is awful. So, I wore jeans that day and next time I'll make sure to bring a pair of capri pants, those will be much cooler I'm sure.

So, today begins my fifth day of unemployment and I'm enjoying it a lot. Got the dishes done and will dust later. Maybe do some laundry. I will definitely finish my chapter outlines although I'm not sure how many total chapters I'll have... it's just nice to be able to feel creative again.

My former boss, from Bellagio, said it would take a few weeks to get all the paperwork together. I'm completely fine with that. This is like a nice mini vacation and I'm going to enjoy it.

I told JP last night that Flogging Molly will be performing at the Pearl on the 24th. I want to go so bad!!!!!! There are chances to win tickets on 107.9, but I'm never that lucky. I'll try though. *crosses fingers

Not much else is going on. I'm pretty boring this week. LOL.

Happy Birthday Nink!!!!

I thought you could use a balloon on your birthday...





I have a pin if you need it.

Oh Boy

Well, I did it. I put in my notice at my job.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Once I uttered the words "I'm quitting", I felt a huge weight lift off my shoulders. It was a pretty heady feeling.

Then of course came the uncertainty. Am I doing the right thing with the way the economy is? Will I regret it? Then I talked to my family and my mom told me that if I did stay, I would end up hating it more and then not want to do the job at all. I'm not one to provide crappy customer service, but I could see myself dreading each phone call and having to wake up in the morning to go in (worse than it is now, LOL). So, I feel more confidant that I'm doing the right thing.

My old boss called me today. Talk about weird! He asked me if I wanted to come back to work part time and it was like a gift had been dropped in my lap. I'm not yet unemployed, but now I'll have a part time job and be able to write as well. Pretty lucky. So, I took him up on his oh so generous offer and I'm just waiting for my paperwork to go through. Yay for three days a week! Whoot!

I took today off even though my last day is next Wednesday. See what I mean about dreading going in? Anyway, had a doctor's appointment and plan on being lazy the rest of the day. This weekend I will go shopping for groceries now using coupons. I want to see how much I can save.

Does anyone know any good coupon websites? I'm a complete n00b at this and I can Google, but I want opinions as well.

So, my wonderful friends, how are you today?
emma_moon: (Can't sleep)
I've had a crappy week.

I know I haven't been online for the bah this week, but I've been run ragged with work and home stuff all this week. I'm... really tired. Physically and mentally right now. I think I have a case of the "blahs".

I'm off to work, then I hope to enjoy a three day weekend. Yay! I'll be on IM tonight. I need to have my friends with me. *hugs

I have some new friends! Hi!!!

I don't have any rules or guidelines for my LJ. Basically, comment if you like, or not.

I don't believe in friend cuts, but I have no objection if someone decides to cut me. It happens. Sometimes people don't click or real life intrudes, no biggie.

So, just enjoy yourselves. And please excuse the post riddled with grammar errors, I just got home from work and I'm exhausted.
