Heaven rest us, I'm not asbestos!

I'm in such a damn good mood!
I DANCED TODAY!!! I went to a swing party and it was so much fun! This is cause for all caps and exclamation point abuse because, well yes, it was awesome, but, as many of you know, I haven't been able to dance in a damn long time! (Whether or not I can dance well is still in question!) Anyway, my knees have been shit for forever, and last year the muscle wasn't entirely built back up post-surgery and when I did dance it hurt. But today I wore my brace and was totally fine and it was so much fun! Ah! Happy Mugsie!!! Heeeee!

Afterward, I went to go see the L Word. Oh man. This is the only season I've actually enjoyed. They've finally stopped taking themselves seriously and so it's gotten so ridiculous that it's come around to being awesome! Helena's storyline is my favorite! Dusty is one tough chick!

Also,  BACON COOKIES! To everyone in Evanston, I'm sorry this is such old news! I've forced them on anyone that's not vegetarian. But that's because they're bacon chocolate chip cookies with maple cinnamon glaze! They're amazing! It's like the best breakfast ever (french toast with maple syrup and some cinnamon on top with a side of bacon) but in cookie form! I will be happy to make a batch with or for any of you that have not yet had the pleasure. >_^

Finally, QUIZ BOWL! Anna, Lana, Christine and I are all on a team for Quiz Bowl. As far as knowledge of the trivial goes, I have no idea how we'll fare, but one thing is for certain: our team wins at boob power. Hands down. Lana decided that combined, all boobs on the team are about equal to a small child. Team boobs 4 the win!

And ... oh man, I'm embarrassed about this one. I was using my myspace account to download songs and figured oh hell, I'm using the damn thing, I may as well post some pictures or whatever and make it semi-active. So. I'm actually on myspace now. *facepalm* ...Friend me?

Ok, so because I'm so gosh darn perky right now, I had a really hard time deciding which icon to use. The solution is to post them all!

For bacon cookies

For team boob power! Boobs 4 the win!

Because I feel like one hep cat!

When you put Sugar Cookie tea in a microwave that smells like pulled pork, you get sugar-glazed/drenched pork smell!

Happy 2008!

finished-ish: finishish

holyfuckiamdonewithmypapers. One of them was half an hour late and hopefully that won't drop my grade/do horrible horrible things, but either way it's done now. Ok.
Now to finish my art project.

Back? To basics! To black! To back!

Holy shit! It would appear that after... only slightly less than a year, I'm posting again. I sort of abandoned lj when I headed to college, only occasionally checking my friends page when I wasn't too stressed to think (or when I was really procrastinating). Anyway, I didn't really feel like posting personal shit, and facebook (god bless it) covered posting photos and idle chat with people without a lot of the drama of lj. (Although it's not much for pretty icons, but hey - win some, lose some.) Why am I back? A) To update some non-facebook friends on my life and B) to be more active is the trans community, which seems to be easier to do online than on-campus. On-campus is small, disorganized (in the sense that we don't really have an organization), and even cliquey at times. Of course, that is all coming from an intimidated, slightly bitter freshly-post-freshman viewpoint. Anyway, groups of friends change and I just feel a little awkward posting things here for all the people I was lj friends with when this journal was more active than it was. Point being - comment here if you still are on lj and interested in the above. I'm probably just going to sort people into groups, and will probably post a few all friends or public entries, so I'm not going to unfriend anyone. I'm not trying to be a bitch -well, not right now - so hopefully no one is offended by my asking for friending comments. Thanks!

On another note, I made some lovely butternut squash soup today. It was delicious.

That motel is evil!

Big slimy llama teeth! I have big slimy liberated llama teeth! In other words, I got my braces off today and my teeth feel weird. They gave me the dorkiest pin ever that says "Kiss me - I got my braces off today!" I wear it with pride. If I only I still had my "I <3 my allergist" shirt. I could wear them together - it would be a blast! So today I ate carmels, corn of the cob, a carmel apple, and Bubblicious Cotton Candy bubble gum (which as a bitch to find). Oh it makes me happy! Happy!
In other news, Irish Fest was fun. Gaelic storm and lots of good food. Oh, and fireworks. If nothing else, it gave me another chance to dress up as the Irish flag. Although I did get a ring-shaped bruise on my palm from clapping so much. Plus I got to see a bunch of people. JGT - if your reading this you MUST call me to pick up the tutu. You must! 
If you want to see a dumb horror movie, see Motel Hell. Nothing beats cannibalism. Nothing.
