Harvest Feast, Halloween, and Hanging out…

Standard

I know I am petty bad about updating this thing, but really my blog its more for me than anyone else… If you choose to read it I do appreciate it, but really it is primarily a way for me to sort my thoughts out…

Since the breakup a lot has gone on, and yet not much at all… But life is starting to look up. I’ve been growing inside, which is great, I’ve seen a lot of good stuff happening around me… then again I guess there’s a lot of heart aches too.

I know the Jason is hurting and that kills me. I hate seeing a friend going through so much pain and knowing that it is my doing. but I have to be true to myself… and even Jason admits that he was trying to change me.

So Halloween went pretty well, I spent the weekend with Hengist, Mira, Thorolf, and Sabrina… It was really nice having us all together all weekend. On friday night we all went up to a Halloween party at a friend’s house in Bremerton. I ended up dressing as “Rosie the Rivitor”… Even loaned me an aluminum pipe wrench that totally made the costume… And I got to see a bunch of my friends that I haven’t seen in way too long. It was really a blessing.

Saturday we all went to another party in Seattle… And there I got to see a bunch more of my SCA friends that I haven’t seen in months or in a couple of cases a few years (along side the usual suspects of course)… This time I borrowed one of Mira’s costumes and so I was an “anarchy cheerleader.” Yet again we all got goofy and had a great time…

Strangely enough, Sunday everything was pretty tame… Mira had a belly dancing show scheduled at Karma in Puyallup, and Sabrina headed back home to Yakima. So Hengist, Mira, Thorolf and I went to the show where we saw Dana also… But the venue was putty barren so we just ate a nice indian food dinner… (lamb vindaloo – yum!) Mira want feeling too hot anyways, so it was probably good that she didn’t dance.

On monday, I woke up sicker than snot with a fever… And I have spent the whole week in bed recovering… It’s a brutal bug this year, almost everyone we saw this weekend caught some variation of it (lucky butts Sabrina and Thorolf exempt)…

I was capable of functioning about midday friday which is good because I discovered a horrible lump on Moses’s torso… so by the generous grace of Sven and Anne, we took Mo to the vet. The very want quite sure what was going on, but after he took some fluid from the limp he saw it was infected so mo got a shot of strong antibiotics which have been helping immensely…

Moses is still having thyroid troubles,  so we adjusted his meds a bit, hopefully that helps with his neurological problems, but he is ever too skinny… He only weighed in at 9.1 lbs when he should be somewhere around 16 lbs…. So somehow we have to get him eating enough food to start putting on the weight. Wish him luck, he needs it.

Saturday was harvest feast… Which was okay, but Hengist and Mira didn’t go because they couldn’t eat anything on the menu (stupid gluten), and Sven didn’t go because he was a groomsman in a wedding. Feasts are so bunch more fun with them there…

After harvest feast Thorolf and I went to an after party which was pretty tame (that was preferable though) and later we went to see my friends the Hard Money Saints, and James Hunnicutt play at a bar just past the Roy Y. It was great seeing James, Jack, Mondo and Nick after so long… Kinda weird wearing my viking garb to the trail end of a rockabilly show, but all was good. Lastly we hit up Walmart to pick up some last-minute toys for tots donations then home…

I think I did way too much because I’m feeling pretty icky again (or still) but it has been great seeing all my friends I have been missing. Kills like I may have some photocopy gigs coming up possibly too to help concert my gas bill a bit better… Which is a relief… But a real job is priority…

Also congrats go to my cousin who had her baby… He is a cutie-pie although I have never met him because I have been sick… And I have a phone interview on the 12th.. So wish me luck with that… I have been out of work so long… I’m stir crazy…

I feel like I’m figuring myself out which is exactly what I need to do… Still waiting on my final “no”from the military, and if that happens I will look into counseling to help sort me out memtally a bit more… I think it could be of great value…

I’ll try to keep this a bit more updated… It’s good for me to write out my thoughts, and if you care to read my ramblings, great! If not, oh well… like I said this is mostly for me!

I really need to learn to update this thing semi-regularly….

Standard

So 2010 has already proven to be a somewhat exciting year for me… kind of… but not neccesarily in a good sort of way… So I will start from the beginning…

New Years Eve went over pretty well; my friend Nick came home from Iraq a few days before and had the great taste of turning 21 on Dec 31… So we went to the Grand opening of the new Hell’s Kitchen Down in Downtown Tacoma and saw a number of my friend’s bands including the Atomic Outlaws and The Jet City Fix.
The new venue for Hells Kitchen is alright I guess; but honestly I have so many good memories at the old place; It’s sad it moved… and the acoustics in the new building give me a bit of a headache… (Giant “L” shaped room) although It is nice that there are two bars now… although there really isn’t any space for the lines to go. The show however was pretty good with the exception of a few of the groupies for the Fix… they were a bit pushy to the point that the heel on my new boots broke and I got a few healthy bruises too.. Oh well; those wounds have healed (excepting my boots; I still have to find some place i can get them repaired…).
Unfortunately, after New Years, I got REALLY REALLY sick… Sick to the point that I was bedridden for 2 weeks and in and out of the doctor’s office every 2-3 days. They still haven’t fully figured out what it was; but it’s healing up okay now. There was a strong suspicion of an ulcer due to the fact that I had some internal bleeding in my stomach. However, when I went to the specialist I was already feeling mostly better (finally!) and she said that there was a good chance that is was gastritis… which just means that I have to be good to myself and let it heal…
As for my trying to reenlist in the military; I talked to the recruiters and they said that the MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) doctor said we were missing some papers in my med-read file – namely my separation paperwork and my recent ophthalmological (eye) exam. This doctor is the same slimy doctor that I had to deal with the last time that I enlisted and he tried pulling some really shady shit then too; so keeping my patience is trying… Fortunately my recruiters are pretty cool and they’re resending the same papers again so that he can get the stick out of his ass… So hopefully we will hear something soon about that…
On the heart front I still love Spyder mercilessly…. I wish I could afford to fly down and visit him for just a few days even, or have him come home like I know he really wants to for a little R&R… Just to finally be able to see him hold him and kiss him would mean sooo much to me; but I have to be patient I know.. it just seems that at this rate his enlistment will be over by the time that I am finally going to be able to see him… So I remind myself as I do countless times a day:

“Love is patient, Love is kind.. Love never ends…”

I’ll live…. It’s just the constant waiting that has claimed my life for the time being…. I know I will live; but it just doesn’t seem to get any easier…

It’s been HOT!!!

Standard

It’s been hot… obscenely so… The heatwave that has been going on up here is absolutely insane with numerous record temeratures in the triple digits. It’s just crazy to think that only a few months ago people were freezing to death in a record setting snow storm… (I was snowed-in for quite a while personally) and now you are hearing about deaths related to the heat…

I even questioned if I was heat casing in my Math class today… Who’d have thunk??? Worst part is that I had a Math test today as well… I hope I did well.. I didn’t study as much as I had originally intended to… you know?

So my photography seems to be getting more and more recognition in the local music industry… well the rockabilly side… which is GREAT! Marshall Scott Warner wants me to come out to his show at the Tractor Tavern tomorrow and get some shots… I told him that I have a date (more on that guy later), and he was tryiong to convince me to just move my date to the show… I told him it is up to my date (which it is) and he’s even offered to guest-list me and my date… which is nice… I find it nice that people want my services so much they are willing to get me into shows… Maybe it’ll lead to some profits enough to buy some cameras…

So anyways, about my date… I met this guy (Allen) at the Reverend Horton Heat show that I went to on the 11th of July. He was just the random guy behind my in the crowd… so we flirted during the show and he gave me his number… so we’ve had quite the crazy last few weeks. I’m pretty sure he is good for me. He’s insistent on taking things nice and slow which is good for me… I have a really bad habit of going too far too fast. On top of it he is gorgeous! I really like him and he says the same of me… It’s great!

So our tastes are similar and we are both in school which has to stay my primary concern in life as I really want to be able to get into PLU… It’s really important to me… I just hope I will be able to afford it in the end you know?

Fuck yeah! I met Dick motherf***ing Dale!!!

Standard

You read it right… he even gave me his cell phone number… BEAT THAT! hehe — so yeah he’s an awesme and laid back guy… I hope I can meet up again with him someday… I think I am going to try to convince my mother to make the ‘family trip’ to cali overlap with Oct. 8 so I can catch him at the Balboa pier… that would be fucking amazing!

Once upon a time…

Standard

Once upon a time… in a land not too far away there lived a fair maiden who liked to dress up like a viking some weekends, and go to rock shows on other weekends… Now this maiden met a lord who also liked to play dress up some weekends and said that he liked rock shows too… so they decided to start courting….

lo and behold the lord lived a 2 hour mechanical chariots ride away and the mechanical chariot ate money as fuel making visits very expensive… but they still traveled across the lands to see each other…

Now it seemed all was going well… they got along splendidly… until – the maiden wanted to see The Jet City Fix at a lovely little hole in the wall called Hells Kitchen… and she discovered that the lovely lord she had been enjoying so long couldn’t hang at a Small rock show….. So they went their separate ways….

Now refreshingly released from her doomed relation; she traveled in he mechanical chariot not nearly so far to a nice gentleman of sorts who didn’t like to play dress up but did like rock shows… they had tried courting but found that being friends was much more beneficial…

The gentleman was relieved at the lady’s sudden freedom and proposed a friendly celebration at the tavern called Goldfish… sand so they walked to the tavern called goldfish and proceeded to get trashed…

The end.

Well, that was the story of my weekend…. how’s it going for you?

TriPolar Show pictures!!!

Standard

Went and saw the Tri Polar show down in Portland… been looking forward to it for sometime… also it was my first 21+ show… and since it was in Portland we could smoke in the bar… so I had a few drags…. mand it rocked! until my DD said he was getting tired and we had to leave… NOTE TO SELF: get hotel room next time…. then you can stay to last call…. Man it rocked!

ROCK!

F*** Ticketmaster!

Standard

Goddamn Corporate WHORES!!! all I want is to see a few goddamn shows before I die and this yer seems to be one of those years with too many concerts I want to go to…

So anyways I call up Ticketmaster when the Queensryche tickets are released and low and behold… BUSY LINE You are fucking Ticketmaster and you have a busy line??? WTF?!

so yeah later that day when I was able to get through I couldn’t get a floor seat because they were all sold out… so I paid the SAME PRICE as I would for a floor seat to get stuck up in the balcony….*Groans* Not to mention it took me 45 min. during my 30 min. lunch break to use their piece of shit automated service… grr…

On top of that… today Josh drove up to Seattle to camp out for Tool Tickets and Ticketmaster/The Paramount said that they couldn’t do it… so later my boy found out they have decided to do a lottery for those people instead… basically they get a number and if their number was selected then they can buy 2 tickets… TWO…. TWO GODDAMN TICKETS!!! ARRGH… So in other words I will be immensely lucky if I can swing Tool tickets…. *sniffles*

so before my head explodes… I FUCKING HATE TICKETMASTER!!!

Thanks for listening… Have a nice day!

Tortured Tales of the Tattooed heart.

Standard

Crap. I’ve been trying to deny it… Trying to ignore it. Trying to do everything but move on. A year and a half it lasted… and was beautiful – at the time it seemed like all of my dreams were coming true… but go figure, I’m just some little toy to him. It seems like everyone who matters told me how I now see it really was.. Ty was the first one – sometimes I hate the way he is always right… I barely know the guy, and yet somehow I am always able to talk to him about things and emotions I cannot seem to get out anywhere else… even myself sometimes… He also tells me how things really are… he’s always right… he was right about this guy, and getting over my dad… It’s crazy. People that know us both always relay his life to me, they say I love him – I say he needs to get famous already so that I can tell people to shrug it off as just some crush one a celebrity.

Anyways – as I was saying, Ty was the first to tell me it won’t work and that he won’t commit – bastard was right again. Everyone else said it too… Billy, Josh, Susan, even those that wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt warned me about the strong chance of this happening… and when it did I still didn’t want to admit it. I asked him to commit – he gets a vasectomy. grr.

He was too old for me anyways.. Way too old. I mean yeah I like older men, but damn. It’s not like I cared then though.. That didn’t stop me from loving him… I still do really – i think that is the part that makes me so mad. I know I deserve someone better – for example, someone who will actually show to my birthday party… But I am so goddamn picky it’s fucking pathetic. All of the guys that meet my standards are taken!

God I am stupid!
