did Oasis get my letter in the mail?

I was pretty bad at consistency during most of April, this was actually taken on the 5th as well, just pm instead of am. Ended up listening to Amanda all week long. I've become sort of obsessed with Who Killed Amanda Palmer.

Tori Amos and my fuglasses make for a pretty enjoyable evening

Shout out to a couple of my boys. An actual picture of me, see?! And I'm listening to some leaked Tori songs as an experiment, to see if I can guess which is the intro. New nail polish was just the icing on the cake.

 'Cow! Nother Cow!' 'No actually I think that was the same one.'

More forgotten date filler. I used to collect cows and cows things, but I've stopped. For some reason I can't make myself throw them out, so now they hang out on my bookshelves.

Dear John...

Wrote a letter to a friend that I'll never ever send. Blurred out the words with PSP7. Actually taken on Saturday, before the AI picture, but I forgot to take pictures on the 3rd and 4th.

AI

Went to Art Institute for a tour in the morning. It was amazing and exciting, and I really hope everything works out so that I can go there.

the lighting was so surreal

Since I didn't have the camera with me when I went to the pool the night before, I went back this night just to take pictures of it. This and the previous picture were both taken on the 30th, but since I don't have a May 1st shot, it actually works out.

my hair's gotten so long

Bailed on going to the beach with a friend, but then realized that I really did want to go for a dip, so I sneaked out to the community pool at 11:30 at night and had a blast. It did crazy things to my greasy hair.

I did end up getting the adorable thing from Borders for the Shuffle, and I think it ended up being just as cute as I thought it would be.

iPod Shuffle, convenient or boring?

Saw something adorable in borders that convinced me I should steal the Lady's abandoned iPod Shuffle. See if I could like using it, and maybe then get the adorable thing. Seems to be pretty convenient, and much less cumbersome than a normal iPod.

Cast Iron Skillet FTW

Got tired of steamed chicken, so I changed it up a little. Used the cast iron skillet for the first time, and it was the best grilled chicken I'd ever made.

sick puppies are heartbreaking

Don't know if it was the copper from the LAN line, or something she ate, but Gypsy got very very sick for a couple of weeks, and this was the first day of it. She just drooled and slept in my bed all day long. She never drools normally, so she must have been very nauseous.

Have had this ring since 1999 or 2000

Took me a while to adjust, but the two thing that bothered me about my desk (the fact that it was white and shiny/reflective) have sort of become my favorite things about it.

No internet = Unhappy Laur

A bad day following a bad day. I can't remember what all happened, but Gypsy did chew through my LAN line, and that left a rather lasting and angry impression.

gotta zone out and just stop thinking

Had a bad day. It started pouring rain during my morning walk, missed/skipped a call from the admissions lady at Full Sail (which I instantly regretted, cause I really did have quite a few question she could have answered), and then I found a nasty lump on Gypsy's tongue, plus weird red marks in her ears and tiny soars on her snout. Only thing left to do is turn up the volume and find a new way to dance.

Hannes desk and hutch

Couldn't fall back asleep after my morning walk with Gypsy, so I finished building the Hutch and attached it to the Desk. Did this entire thing without once turning off my computer, cause I've got skillz like that. Of course, now the rest of my room is a complete mess.

Two firsts this day. First time at Ikea and first time I've ever assembled anything like this by myself before. Ikea made it easy, but I'm still so proud of myself.

Gypsy likes to suddenly attack me when I'm in bed sometimes, usually right as I'm trying to take a picture of her being sedate and adorable.

inbetween the lines there's a lot of obscurity

Forgot to take a picture during the day, and only remembered a few minutes after midnight, so this was taken at 12:08am. Bought the first 2 seasons of Psych earlier in the evening. So much funny in one little show.

My father got a spiffy new car. I get a headache as soon as I get in it, every single time, but it's a pretty blue color and all newfangled on the inside, so I'm a little in love anyway.

raccoon

Hand was shaking too much to get a good shot of the full moon, but when I tried to run back inside to get the mini tripod, I was waylaid by this vicious creature. I was standing outside for ages, because every time I tried to inch closer to my house it would hiss and move around.

so complicated and time consuming, but so good.

Hadn't made a red zinger tea latte in quite a while, and even longer since I've made the pretty version. Cold skim milk holds a thick foam the best, but I prefer 2% milk, so I rarely have skim in the house.

Sizzlin' Chicken And Cheese at Friday's.

On the morning walk I hurt my finger wrestling Gypsy away from the cat, and got an okay shot of a flying bird... but the big deal of the day was that I ate meat for the first time in over a year. I was too stressed out by the ordeal to really enjoy it, but all the meat I have eaten since then has been delicious.

mmm, chocolate

Another day where I completely forgot to take a picture. 2:59am on the 2nd, and blurriness should be forgiven. I was too lazy to find the tripod or turn on the lamp, so this is only just picking up the light from my computer screen.

these duck come off as so much sweeter than they are

Went out pretty early and took some low-light morning shots on the mini tripod. Fun, because they all came out much brighter than it actually was. I like this particular shot because the only reason she didn't come out blurry is that she was standing perfectly still.

Forgot to take a picture this day, but I was up late the night before and had taken this one at 6:37am. So technically it's from the right date. It's an old Polly Pocket swan.

A Tale of the Five Hundred Kingdoms

Been rereading this in bits and pieces before bed lately. Finally got to the Alexander parts tonight, though, so I imagine I'll speed through the rest on Sunday/Monday.
