And to get the ball rolling, I think my general frustration with job hunting has slipped into my crafting time:

What is everyone else making?

Signal boosting: The latina tag on tumblr is pretty much 100% porn so people are trying to reclaim the tag. It would help if people would tag and post any non-porny latina stuff.

right on! shitty situation but I love the reclaiming

last night was so great

I went to a show where I (on a very loose definition) kind of know the drummer and he recognized me (again) and approached me and gave me like 10 hugs, a random high five, and said I was his "bud" and that we went "way back" lol. was not expecting that bc I was telling people in line that I don't know him personally but he made me look like a liar. and I'm pretty sure the guy who was flirting with me stopped because he thought he had competition.

my friend said he was flirting with me but he's just super friendly. but tbh I wouldn't say no.

^this is him lmao

here are my photos from the show if anyone likes live show photography or something: http://www.flickr.com/photos/clumsyheart/sets/72157632557873280/with/8393146003/

edit: lol it sounds like I was bragging to people in line. they asked me how I knew of the band and I said I kinda "knew" the drummer from a previous band /o\

Other than knitting and watching TV shows online (Holy shit West Wing is a damn good show!) I won a Starbucks gift card in a draw! I've never won a draw before!

I am also marathoning WW now that it's on Netflix. Just got to the end of s4! LOVE IT. I can't decide who I love more: Donna, CJ, or Margaret.
sihaya09 19th-Jan-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
Going to bed early (well, for me anyway). I have an update of over 100 pieces of jewelry that I just finished up today, so my weekend is going to be a marathon of photography, photo-editing, and copy-writing. I need to beg my husband for some hand massages when it's all done, otherwise I'll have gnarled little claws instead.

In other news, I bathed my cat tonight. It was about as much fun as you'd imagine.
seishin 19th-Jan-2013 05:36 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure I've asked you before, but do you have a link to your jewellery? I love looking at shiny things (and necklaces are my kryptonite) :D

I started attending shul at the Conservative (traditional, egalitarian) synagogue near my house. The rabbi is pretty young, just a few years older than me (early 30s?) and kind or cute. The last time I went he was very encouraging of my wearing a kippah. I had ordered one after the first time I went but it hadn't come in so I had to use one of the synagogue's.

I went to my usual synagogue tonight and was one of a few women wearing a kippah. Even at the egalitarian minyan, not many women wear kippot (all wear tallitot though). Anyway, I just came back from Shabbos dinner at my rabbi's house. It was good and I was actually able to eat stuff.

Also, I am going to be applying for some new jobs. Hopefully it will work out. I am really sick of working where I currently am. The pay and hours are lousy. I am not treated very well. Ugh.

Friday has been dull for me _P.

SO, Does anyone here play tabletop RP? And what kind of campaigns are all in?
__sasami__ 19th-Jan-2013 05:46 am (UTC)
I play Pathfinder :). We have two campaigns going with different groups. In one, I drew from the deck of many things and my character is now neutral evil. So, uh, yeah. That sure changes things. What do you play?
seishin WTF Youtube video of the day:19th-Jan-2013 05:33 am (UTC)

Nerds. We'll kill you with our brains. :P

Aside, things are okay. I meet with my surgeon on Monday, and will FINALLY find out when I'm having my surgery. It should be within the next month, if not sooner if I can get squeezed in. My parents are worried that I'll have it done while they're on vacation (they leave on Thursday for 2 weeks), and wont be able to take care of me (even though its only day surgery). They're usually of the "you're strong like bull and can take care of yourself" mindset, so seeing them act like this to their 33 year old daughter is...weird. They're not ones to normally express emotions.

I'm just looking forward to finally putting this all behind me, and focus on finding a better job in 2013 and traveling. I NEED TO BUST OUT, _P. Do some bucket list stuff.

Survived the first week at work but OMFG GUYS I LOVE MY JOB. even though I haven't gotten to actually do anything for srs and will not be able to do anything for srs until I get qualified which won't happen until the end of Feb probably. But just observing the other analysts do work and being in lab again is awesomeeeeeeeee!

Taking a Human Sexuality class this semester and I love the professor so much. She is an awesome lady and who just doesn't give a shit about the administration. We are only at the beginning but this class is going to be so interesting! :)

I am just going through life right now. Focusing on school and my health. Must keep taking meds, doing homework, and start exercising.
ahzuri 19th-Jan-2013 05:34 pm (UTC)
One of the guys at work is taking a Human Sexuality class too so we spend a good hour helping him with an assignment for the class to come up with slang terms for a penis, vagina and sex. I was pretty amused.
bostondreamer 19th-Jan-2013 05:44 am (UTC)
I'm really not sure what's going on with the guy I'm talking to at the moment. I mean, I told him right before winter break that I liked him, and he said "it's not a yes or a no, but I need to think about it". Still hasn't brought it up yet, despite the fact that we've talked a bunch over break and I've seen him pretty much every night this week. I'm so confused...

But in other news, I discovered a wonderful new brand of alcohol called Three Olives (I think it's vodka). It was mango flavored, and I highly recommend it.
justspaz 19th-Jan-2013 05:44 am (UTC)
Fridays, for the first time, are days off for me. No classes, no work--built in 3 day weekends, with this one being a 4-day one. I'm planning on using it to work out/read for classes, but today, I just went into Center City and napped and watched Argo. Really productive, right? At least I was able to get great loose tea, after a month of substandard tea while I was home for break/too busy to get downtown. Tea!<3

Now I'm watching Jimmy Fallon for Jessica Chastain.
sio BOOK THREAD XD19th-Jan-2013 05:48 am (UTC)
so what are you reading this week(end), _p?

currently i'm working on a thriller/mystery called The River (Free Kindle download), trying to finish up Catherine Asaro's Schism, and working on a true crime novel.
layweed Re: BOOK THREAD XD19th-Jan-2013 05:50 am (UTC)
Only work related stuff forever and ever and ever. But at least it's interesting reading!

Lawd, there is so much potential for WTF on Facebook.

According to my brother, it's totes okay for him to post something a friend said about "n-ggahs" on Facebook because a) his roommate is half black and b) said friend, while Asian, is apparently "remarkably hood". I attempted to explain the epic fail of this logic to him with very little success. (We are basically the definition of white, if it's not clear.)

Also, crowdsourcing here:

I have to write up and do a five-minute bit on a queer issue (preferably in relation to a recent news story). I'm playing with the idea of how social media is used to signal-boost hate crime stories and lost queer persons (esp. trans people) but I'm not sure how much I could say as a cis person. Thoughts?
lastrega 19th-Jan-2013 06:19 am (UTC)
Maybe just pick a single story on a hate crime and focus on that? Five minutes isn't long to speak.

I really want the new "Glitz Bitz and Pieces" Nail Polish collection from China Glaze, but none of my local Sally Beauty's have it yet.

So I just sit here and burn with jealously over all the swatches I've seen on line from people who have found them at their Sally Beauty's.

rjdaae 19th-Jan-2013 06:16 am (UTC)
I'm still pining for the glitters from the Cirque du Soleil collection. China Glaze = out of my budget. :(

Also, a tennis match was on at the restaurant tonight, and I just couldn't take my eyes off Del Potro:

Well, he wasn't shirtless, but let's just say his gym shorts were flattering ... in more ways than one. He's a bit of a butterface, but just the whole, uh, package ...
