Dear Livejournal

Steven and his stupid hat ride again
So, two bits of news type things.

First off, in relationship news, me and Karen are "just friends." It sounds ludicrous saying that since we obviously feel deeper than that for each other, but for now that is where the limit is. But on a happier note, me and Marie are becoming much closer. Becoming much more attached.

Secondly, I am heading to Missouri on April 6th. I will return to Portland-land on the 19th. Giving me plenty of time to hitchhike and adventure properly.

What else can I say? I've neglected this LJ. I've also neglected my writing. I'm going to try to write in here every day that I have access to the intarwebs. This will serve as good exercise I suppose.

This Just In!
I found this old livejournal! And it still works! Wow!

Since I have a secret relationship and all, I will post my bloggingses in this space instead.

Also there is a good poly support group on here. Anyhoo, its nice to see I'm not the only neglectful lj owner.

Pants are a beautiful thing. Like a Jellyfish on vacation.

interesting profile thing
Your dating personality profile:

Liberal - Politics matters to you, and you aren't afraid to share your left-leaning views. You would never be caught voting for a conservative candidate.
Big-Hearted - You are a kind and caring person. Your warmth is inviting, and your heart is a wellspring of love.
Sensual - You are not particularly shy when it comes to your sexuality. You know what you like and do not feel inhibited.
Your date match profile:

Adventurous - You are looking for someone who is willing to try new things and experience life to its fullest. You need a companion who encourages you to take risks and do exciting things.
Liberal - You need a person who has liberal opinions and beliefs. You are engaged by political discussions and would find a liberal viewpoint refreshing in a date.

You Are 32% Evil

A bit of evil lurks in your heart, but you hide it well.
In some ways, you are the most dangerous kind of evil.
1:04 pm
I think being psychic would suck. I'm not sure you would be able to distinguish between what you are feeling and what they are feeling. That their thoughts would pollute yours. You'd become a homogenized walking mass of people's minds. This how crazy people come into existence.

A special request
To recap the plan for Shawshank '06:

Phase 1 - Get a job
Phase 2 - Save money
Phase 3 - Get an apartment
Phase 4 - Get a job
Phase 5 - Tie up emotional loose ends
Phase 6 - Get the hell out.

I've got number one. Close enough on number 2. Workin' on number three and four. Already skipped ahead and took care of five. Before I do number six and take off....I want to have photos. For every night I stay up missing my friends and family that I leave behind, I want a massive collection of photos to view them. So, thats phase 5 and a half. And it now takes priority. Send me pics you peoples I loves.

Jess Got Married? You bet your ass he did.
I think this was definitely the first time I've been happy and proud to put on a suit. Melodi and Erin D. were the bridesmaids, and a tiny little person was the ring-bearer. Amy's grandfather was the preacher, and had very nice things to say. One of those people that is a vast well of anecdotes. Jess' parents were a bit late showing up, but after they did Amy was given away by her father who (and I mean this in a nice way) looks like a combination of TDR and William Howard Taft.) All of us nearly burst into tears as they exchanged vows. Sam missed the ceremony unfortunately, but he got to rock it out with us at the reception. All of us dudes wore a very geeky peice of jewelry for this occasion. Star Trek ranking pips on our sleeves. Jess got to be Lt. Commander and everyone else an ensign. I nearly lost all composure during my toast.

Then I figured out it was my job to decorate the car. Wikipedia failed to mention that detail. :-P

All in all easilly one of the most moving days in my existence, and certainly the biggest for my two wedded friends.

Once I have more of them, I'll post some wedding photos.

HE WAS MORE BURNING TREE THAN MAN! (Survey Time)
(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (Nice black framed ones.) I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.  (Meh.)
I've watched porn movies. I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (Well, not like a stalker, but a bit of an asshole.) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on...Collapse )

No Subject
What rules? Hanging out with Jess. What rules even more, hanging out with Jess and watching Terminator 2. As if that could somehow be surpassed, perhaps on a better researched scale of awesome, what rules even more is watching said movie with Jess during the line "MY CPU IS A NEURAL NET PROCESSOR. A LEARNING COMPUTER"
I really had forgotten how much that movie makes me go "wa wa wee wa"
Damn. Good. Times.

A turn of good weather
I've always said that Kelly is not really a person, more like a force of nature. Powerful, sometimes destructive and most certainly unpredictable. Tonight he picked me up and put my on an island of fun. I was having black tea at Mudlounge trying to elevate my mood (steady treatments of Wesley and classic Trek notwithstanding, I'm still gonna have relapses) when I ran into the drunken whirlwind. He introduced me to Ingrid, Blithe and John(who I had met previous at the house of Goat) We talked comics, scheming lesbians, mountain crabs and "valagmite/valagtites" (Think caves and women who never have sex) They made me happy enough that I was capable of drinking a bit of alcohol. Then we ate pizza. Drunk, creepy dude hit on Ingrid. Several creepy times. After this excursion we went to Ingrid's place to pet bobcats, listen to the Decemberists and discuss the feel-good comic "Maus." Ipods rule, penis jokes rule, girls pretending to be veloceraptors rule. John as before was enthralled by my tales of adventures and I was happy to meet someone finally (Ingrid) who does not like Kerouac. Sorry guys, I really really want to like him, but I simply can't.

In conclusion the 20 Questions game knows giraffes better than it knows itself.

All evidence indicates I am very stupid
Yesterday I went to see Pretty/Ugly. Went to the wrong Outland. I ended up at the Outland Ballroom, and was subjected to mallcore christian rock. I eventually figured this out and went next door to see the tail end of Tessa and Arin's performance.

I just got a call from the lady at the Mudhouse. "Did you know you are 10 minutes late for your interview?" Apparently the mudhouse website is for a Virginian chain of mudhouses. Completely unrelated to the ones in Springfield. She seemed amused at least "Thats the best reason for missing an interview I've ever heard. If your are ever in Richmond, you'll have a job!"

Too bad the commute is too rough. Now we have the issue of all the Springfield people who think I'll be serving them coffee. They will be rightly surprised. I must now go and try to get a job very quickly. I'm very tempted to just go back to the DAV.

Wesley Willis and Pokey the Penguin are the perfect cures for depression. Its impossible not to smile at these things "OUR CHURCH IS ROCKET SHAPED! TO TAKE US TO THE MOON! WHERE GOD LIVES!" Maybe I could start up a Pokey themed therapy center. But I don't know if "I RECOMMEND OATMEAL! I LIKE OATMEAL!" Would work for everyone. THAT IS THE PRICE OF LOVE
