oh hi.

Jimmy Petstore

I'm rereading the MsScribe saga for some reason and

now I really, really kinda miss Sugar Quill and all the friends I made there. I think I'm only in touch with a few from there still.


Jimmy Petstore

I'm lonely and want my family to be here. :(

this is the first year in FOREVER I won't be with my favourite cousins.

last year my brother and kids were here and it was the best Christmas I have ever, ever had.


it's a good thing I chose to do the advent gif project now, since it at least distracts me...

brynnmck wrote AN AMAZING Headstones post of Awesomeness and I haven't even READ it all yet but it is the best and makes me so nostalgic and wanting to listen to every song a million times!!!!


(Hugh's voice IS the eighth sexy wonder of the world, people. get addicted.)

an excerpt:
[T]here is a lot of rock music that is misogynist, inane, humorless, and/or ridiculously self-pitying, and the Headstones are NONE of those things. The Headstones are smart, self-aware, funny, compassionate, sharp without being cruel, angry without being blinded by it; they're respectful and irreverent and if you've fucked up or if your life isn't what you want it to be, they want you to get off your ass and do something about it, because they expect the same of themselves.

help, I'm alive


I am going to California on July 14th! and staying for WHO THE FUCK KNOWS HOW LONG! :D

See, what happened was that I whined on facebook about missing a ton of family people and my sister in law commented saying they miss me too, then proceeded to call me and say that they would totally pay for a one-way ticket for me if I'd pay the other one and I could go out there and stay as long as I want. :D :D

This is so great because it actually makes me feel WANTED, you know? I'm just really happy about it.

So yeah! Going there the 14th and staying at LEAST for two weeks.

AND. I may have chosen that time frame on purpose because PSYCH MUSICAL SCREENING IN SAN DIEGO. FREE. MIDNIGHT THE 17TH. I AM GOING. I am going with a long longtime internet friend I have never met before in person! She is never on LJ anymore either! But we are partners in crime in doing a Gay Moment in Every Psychisode thing on tumblr! WHEEE!

Anyhoo. The theatre it's at is like 30 minutes north of where my brother now lives--they moved, finally, to a larger place and also to be waaay closer to where he works than before. So I get to see all of that! AND SEE THE PSYCH MUSICAL!!!! KJFJASLKJKL :D

And also my precious nieces and nephews and brother and sister in law and and and YAY.

(ahaaahahaha, apparently they were trying to keep it a secret from said children but the oldest, Angelina, was behind Ruth as she was on the phone with MY mom talking about it, and Angelina overheard and started shouting JAIME'S COMING, JAIME'S COMING! and jumping up and down. /BEAMS)

So hi, LJ. Hi.

From the incendiary opening chords of `Change My Ways` it`s easy to remember that before Hugh Dillon established himself as a major TV and movie star, he fronted a powerful punk-rock band called The Headstones who exploded onto the Canadian music scene in 1993 and subsequently released five albums in the next seven years (One going platinum and two reaching gold sales figures) before success as a movie star and a major TV starring role disrupted his music career.

I am bored, lonely, sad, worried, and other sucky emotions. so here's that fun old icon/interests meme from the lovely nerdork.

interests even though my interests are super outdated since I stopped updating them in like 2007:

* cincinatti - this was made before I lived here, and was referring to all the shit here I like and my family and everything ahaaahaha ironic now ain't it
* franklin steve watermelon - this was from like. 2004 or something, when people were saying that gay marriage doesn't need to be called marriage, it can be called anything (even franklin steve watermelon), as long as it's EQUAL in terms of rights. obviously, as time has passed, it has become more important for it to in fact be called marriage as well, but whatever.
* logan/weevil - ugh, precious wonderful assholes. I will never be over how Rob Thomas SAID all the writers love writing for those two, and then they had a total of one fuckin scene together in 3rd season.
* never updating my interests - um, hello, I think we can all see how this is the most relevant of all my interests.
* oldies - I like old music?!??!
* sexy redheads - IS THIS NOT CLEAR TO ANYONE? everyone ever should have red hair, basically.
* the beast - best fuckin roller coaster on the planet and if I don't get to go on it again soon I may just die.

aaaand icons.Collapse )

sup, fools. because we all know by now that I am 100% obsessed with Mickey and Ian from Shameless and there is basically no hope of this ever changing, I caved and made a fanmix. MUSIC! EXCITMENT! INTRIGUE!

Wow I sure wish Psych fandom on LJ was still alive so 5 million Shawn/Lassiter, Shawn/Gus, and Shawn/every other person ever in the show except his relatives it seems could be written.

cause seriously, holy shit, tonight's episode.

Jimmy Petstore
fucking happy icon.

so like, I recently became obsessed with Shameless. I've watched it from the premiere, but was always just a casual fan. That changed with the second episode of this season, and I reeeeally wish it hadn't because oh my god the intense insane love I have for Ian/Mickey is basically ruining my life. They are, legit, the ONLY couple that makes me collapse into tumblr-cliches. I've managed to keep myself from using the word 'feels', but everything else? Yeah. It's annoying and I can't even HANDLE anything about anything and also Mickey's dad needs to die.

um. so anyway!

how about that thing, huh?? I have some invites, if anyone would like to try it out but somehow have not already. I was late to the party, so maybe some of you are, too? I have one invite left. EDIT: k now I am confused because apparently the invites are all the same code?? even though they gave me four separate ones???? so I dunno what is happening. :c

so I was going through brynnmck's fangirl tag and OH MY GOD I miss due South/Headstones/Canada 6D fandom so much. :( I miss all my friends from there, I miss the fic and the crack and the gushing and the everythiiiing. I had honestly never felt more.. INCLUDED in a fandom before or since.

(maybe Colbert/Stranglers)

I miss you all. :(

also, the reason I was doing this was to see if I could track down a post wherein there is discussion and analysis of Number on the Wall tooootally being about Callum. does a post like this EXIST, or is the only mention of it in brooklinegirl's post about Ignore That Call? cause I'm going slightly mad here.

PS: thank you, everyone, for the kind comments on my last post. <3333

I haven't been around a lot recently. this would be why. I really need to get back to AIM, but I just haven't really.. felt like talking to anyone. but I have nothing but thanks to everyone that commented on facebook or twitter or whatever. <3

the year sucks so far.

my grandmother fell and broke her hip. she can't have surgery to get it fixed because of her lungs and heart and how she'd probably never wake up if they put her under. so now she will never walk again, and has to be in hospice.

my cousin's cat, Snickers, that they had for 15 years, died. she was fat and sweet and had a tiny little meow and I miss her.

and now my brother and etc left to go home, and who knows when I'll see them again.

bad things: in the midst of all my excitement for people to see Charley and my nieces and nephews, I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS forget that I always feel unwanted and unwelcome when he/they are around at family functions. because people don't see them every time like they do with me, and they are cute kids, and I kinda always felt like Charley's more loved than me ANYWAY. add to that that I don't think I'm welcome to tag along to The Cousin's for New Years because again, they see me a lot and I'm just the aunt/sister and hey, maybe if I had a family of my own I'd be more appreciated.........and yeah. I may have spent many a time sitting all alone, trying not to cry.

good things: everyone LOVED their gifts this year, which honestly doesn't happen much. I mean, everyone tends to like their stuff enough, but only a few people get really excited about it, but this time, basically all the kids were all :D -faced and thanking people repeatedly. Angelina got Hello Kitty fuzzy socks and a Merida doll, and Noelle got a couple La La Loopsy toys. Elijah was THRILLED about the ninja legos Destini got him, which was great because I always feel like he'd be the most likely to be rude about something he dislikes. ;P

bad things: I missed getting a picture of Elijah and Des hugging. :|

good things: Angelina and Delaney are apparently new BFFs, even with the 9 and 13 year old differences, and they can't wait to see each other again. aaaaand I just spent a bunch of time crouched on the stairs and slithering along the floor, speaking only in whispers, in an attempt to put down presents from Santa while the kids hopefully slept through it. so that was fun!

and now, goodnight, and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and peace on earth, goodwill toward men.

or something.

We were going to go to the zoo for the festival of lights but we left super late and the traffic was ridiculous so we went downtown instead and we'll go there later. Tonight: uncle David's! Tomorrow: EXCITEMENT AS KIDS WAKE UP TO GIFTS FROM SANTA! :D :D :D

We made cookies last night, too, and they are leaving some out for Santa and his reindeer.

I love everything. <3

Why does my father LIKE that asshole? like, thanks for not giving a shit about your own wife and daughter and granddaughters and nieces and cousins and friends, dad. thanks for giving even less of a shit about your daughter and niece that could end up marrying women.

I would have posted about this earlier, but I was out (buying a super cute plaid coat that would normally be like 50-80 bucks for 15 bucks!! :D) all day and then had to take my cat to the vet because he is dehydrated and sickly and I am terrified. :(


I pledged for the signed CD, cause I felt I probably couldn't justify more. >.> but they have the rings, even! I mean, I only paid 80 for mine, muhahaha, but still! SUPER AWESOME FUNTIMES FOR ALLLLL!

whoo, and might I add: hoo

okay so guess whaaaat! I got a job! :D it's a seasonal thing, at a Halloween City, but dude, it's a JOB. someone finally HIRED ME. I go in Thursday for ~training~ and then it/we open Friday. I am terrified, as a) I am trained for nothing and have never worked for pay and junk, and b) OH GOD CASH REGISTERS. I mean, I still have 1st grade level math skills. I never pay with change because I don't want to stand there counting it out and second guessing my counting and people are behind me in line and the cashier is waiting and AAAHHHH I AM SORRY JUST TAKE MY BILLS AND GIVE ME WHATEVER THE FUCK BACK.

so yeah, that'll be fun on the other side. /sob

aaaanyway, the manager dude seems nice, and he said he would end up being my favourite boss I ever have. ahaahaha. he also asked what my favourite ~scary movie~ is, and I said I really like Rosemary's Baby and I was going to continue with like, The Ginger Snaps trilogy and The Omen and also spooky shows I love but he was like AH, A FAN OF THE CREEPY-SCARY, HUH. I WON'T ASK ANY MORE QUESTIONS.

soooo we shall see how horribly I do! the awesome part of it being seasonal is that it's a good START for me, you know? I mean, I know I'm ancient and pathetic and have no life and I should have been working for like, the past eighty years, but we'll thank therapy for getting me THIS far, k? and it means I won't have to work over Christmas still, muhahaha. ahem.

AND! I've been volunteering at an animal shelter too, so with THAT and this retail shit on my resume, maybe SOMEONE SOMEWHERE will actually hire me again! and pay me millions of dollars to sit at my computer as I make gifs and read fanfic!!!

..maybe not that last part.

innnn other news, here, have a meme I in no way know if I will manage to actually do! I WILL TRY MY BEST, FOLKS. cause I love you even though I never post anymore.

Summary: Okay, so when Finn first spots the baby, he thinks it's a doll.
Notes: written for this prompt at the finnkurt prompt meme. And also for ~kinnja day~ on tumblr. ;P it strayed a little from the prompt, but eh. Many loving thanks to my beta, nerdork :D I am so sorry for that title

It"s an easy mistake; there are some seriously realistic dolls on the market now, and who would leave a baby in the park, anyway?Collapse )
