Reaching Back

October 27th, 2005 § 0 comments § permalink

You may have noticed that the archive section of this blog has grown significantly in the past day or so. Or maybe you haven’t. Well, FINE!

I’ve decided to re-import my older blog entries into this new blog, for historical purposes. I was starting to really miss having the chronicles of my life here at my fingertips.

When I started this new blog, I was inspired by my blogs of old to have a more personal account of my life, where I have been both physically and emotionally. I was really feeling wistful for the days that I was writing for myself.

Unfortunately, I’ve seemed to have lost a chunk of comments in the re-import, but many still remain. Some weird thing happened in which some comments became entries, and I simply deleted them to avoid the headache. Well, at least my entries are all there, for the most part. I also deleted irrelevant entries, like most “site update” type entries and some memes. This clean-up continues in the next day or so, and therefore things may be a bit wonky ’round here. I guess I don’t really need to give excuses, for websites are always in a state of flux.

This is dangerous because I’ve been spending a good deal of time tonight just reading those old entries. Hmm… maybe it also doesn’t help that I had a latte and a doppio espresso at Ritual tonight. I guess that’s what I get for not really having much coffee in the past few weeks because of my illness. Perhaps I need to counteract it with my Nyquil cough syrup.

Gah.

more updates: In reading my old entries, I was totally reminded of my old moblog on Textamerica. I pulled the pictures off and am now starting to put them in Flickr. Yay for historical stuffs.

Elegance

Jake truly knows how to make a girl look good. First, the lovely portrait that he took of me at Lap-pop (with my D50, nonetheless!), then this elegant shot of Eris and I at her birthday soiree on Friday. Who knew my skin could look so good? ;)

If you haven’t ever perused Jake’s photos, I highly recommend taking a look. He brings out the best in people. I find many of my favorite photos coming from him.

Still Illin'

October 14th, 2005 § 0 comments § permalink

Yeah, I’m still sick, going on almost two weeks now! Saw the doctor yesterday, and fortunately, she said that it’s viral… unfortunately, she said I have probably another week left to tough out.

I have a ton of crap to take care of that suffered while I’ve been fighting this illness. The most important thing being my photos for Lap-POP next week… I’m the sole visual artist for this event, so no pressure, really. :D I’m sure everything will come together within these next coupla days… I’ve been toiling over it this week, so I hope it turns out okay.

That said, come to the event! I’d be happy to see ya there, it’ll be a fun time.

On getting sick and being a geek girl

October 12th, 2005 § 0 comments § permalink

I love how a simple “how are you” conversation takes turns for true entertainment (and in turn, blog fodder). In a chat with a good friend yesterday:

T: So how’s your day treating you?
C: not bad. I’m still sick
C: doctor won’t take me till Thursday
T: that sucks. Getting worse?
C: eh, it’s stable
T: Yuck. Well, only 2 days, I suppose. You’ll just have to curtail those early AM drug, alcohol and sex romps you’ve been doing for the last couple of weeks… it wears the body down.
C: ahahaha, sure, T
C: you know me too well ;)
T: I’m just looking out for you… not judging at all.
C: heh. well, I’m a good girl, really
C: I’ve just been way too socially active lately.
T: I know you are. And good girls are always much better than bad girls. The idea of a bad girl is… interesting, but in reality, good girls are so much sweeter.
C: O:-)
T: Well… that may be taking it a little too far. ;)
C: hahaha
C: thanks for the vote of confidence :)
T: Well. c’mon, you need a little bit of badness in you… just a smidgen.
C: yeah, I have a glimmer :D
T: A twinkle of badness. That’s okay. As long as most of you is sweet… and geeky.
T: That’s the funniest thing. After I tell you about recording HD on the Myth PVR, you look at me and say, “that’s so hot.” Cool.
C: haha :D
C: cos it IS
T: Well, much better than sitting and talking about different wines and blather like that.
C: blah
C: I like wine, but that shit is boring for convos
T: True. And I don’t like wine.
C: haha

Yeah, uh, give me good High Definition video over a good wine anyday. Or better yet, give me both at the same time.
