Back to the Beginning

Back at the beginning of time when I started blogging…okay a few years ago, I had a blog on Blogspot. At least I think that’s where it was. If I ever manage to hunt up the files containing that information I’ll let you know.

Once that blog went the way of the Dodo, I started a blog over on LiveJournal. I thought that it might be fun to share with you some of my early blog posts. A blast from the past as it were. Look upon it as a sort of archaeological dig.

Then, I went and looked at the first two posts. Oy. Well…at least you might find them amusing in a “I’m bored at work” kind of way. Luckily the third one is a bit more interesting.

Well, this is really a test. But, if anyone is interested, I will be at BayCon on Sunday.
So, look for me, and say “Hi”.

(post 3) Grumble

2:42 AM

Yes, it really is 2:42 in the morning.
I can’t sleep. Well, to be more specific, I slept some from 7pm to midnight.
…and I just finally gave up and decided to get ready for BayCon.
It *is* a 2 and a half hour drive, after all.

Ok, so it seems these new birth control pills just don’t agree with me.
I’m pretty sure that they are causing the sleep problems…and the upset tummy.

Blah. Well, I’m never very chatty in these things, so I’ll just go back to my
copy of “Justice Hall” by Laurie R. King. Gotta love those books on tape.

Mood: Grumpy

How times change, eh? I’m a bit more chatty these days, I think. That was the very last time I tried to use Birth Control Pills. Historically they have never been easy on my system, but that new kind took the cake. I barely slept for a week. Not that I was tired, mind. Oh no. I was wide awake. But my body was none to pleased with all of the tomfoolery. I remember that I drove down to BayCon by myself, arriving very early, and sat around in a chair in the lobby until I could check into the hotel. I’d stopped taking the pills the previous day, so by the time I got my room I lay down upon the bed and slept like the dead for a while. Hmm…May 2003. A bit more eventful than I remembered.

Interesting what you can see through a window to the past. Even a past only a few years gone.

LJ: Spring Cleaning!!!

Hey! Anyone out there know of a place Koshvader and I can move to in August?
Anyone?

So, I’m newly obsessed with “The Beloved.” I keep watching their videos on Launch.yahoo.com.
The “adult version” of the “Time After Time” video is just plain psycho.
Interesting choice for that particular song.

I’ve spent most of the day watching videos (weird al & old film shorts like Bing Crosby and Ginger Rogers) and trying to clean this mess up. to call it a pig sty would be an insult to pigs.

…and I want to see “The Sheik” again. One of y’all should get me the Sheik/Son of the Sheik DVD for my birthday.
yep.
I don’t suppose anyone knows where I can borrow any other Rudolph Valentino movies.

Boy am I in a weird mood.
Listening to “The Beloved” makes me wonder what Russell is up to.
I’m sorta curious, ya know?

Well, back to the grind…and more Alan Dean Foster Books.

…Time after time, you challenge me for a reason….

LJ: Stuff

Well, I’ve never been very good at keeping up with a journal.
Here’s some tidbits.

I had a dream the other night, that everyone had forgotten my birthday.

I had a fabulous lunch yesterday!!! Mr. Grahame drove through Vacaville precisely at my lunch hour. Yeah, the Grahame that lives in Seattle! We had a tasty lunch, and some fun conversation. I was smiling for hours.

Last night, Igneous, my red car, had some serious trouble and stranded Koshvader at Panda Express.
The practical upshot of this is that Koshvader has finally fixed the turn signal on Raven. Now all it needs is a spare tire and its yearly tune-up. Poor Iggy needs some serious help.

Now I’m trying to clean and organize my house.
Yeah. That’ll happen.

Hey! Can anyone out there help us find a place to live after August?

LJ: home again…

Well, I survived BayCon. I have a henna tattoo, even.
At least I got *some* sleep.
Enough to drive home, anyway. :)

The Atlantis Dance was fun. They played Sir Mixalot and “Fat Bottomed Girls” one right after another.
They also played the macerena.
I still know that dance. Oy.

It was fun hanging out with The Vig & Deb , M. & L., The Harringtons, Tess & Brian, Laura, Dog, Scarecrow,
Rachel, Ragani, etc.

I also got to see Jen and His Ikeness. Ike is so cute!
He seems very serious for a 3 month old. I swear I heard him say “Uh Oh”.

Well, that’s all for now.
I’m gonna go watch “Footlight Parade”
