I heard “December 1963” at work today for the first time since S3 aired and I pretty much had a heart attack. For a brief moment I forgot that it wasn’t a song specifically for Sherlock.
It used to play on the muzak all the time but we’ve been listening to a lot of shitty pop lately instead of older stuff and classics. Good to know we’re back on a good station and not one that plays The Macarena every ten minutes.
I also made lemon and then chocolate mint cupcakes today too… but I liked the way the rainbow ones looked better!
The lemon ones are my favorite, taste-wise. White cupcake with lemon filling and cream cheese icing. SO GOOD.
I made rainbow cupcakes at work today and they made me happy.
Tumblr has really messed up my personal filter.
A very attractive guy came up to me at work today and asked where the oatmeal raisin cookies were and I very very nearly said “I don’t know but you’re really really handsome.”.
I did know though, and I showed him where they were and then watched him continue merrily shopping for cookies in a super dashing double breasted black wool jacket and well-fitting jeans.
I wanted to run my fingers through his beard and I hate beards. Wtf brain.
I had such a cool idea for the cover of my handmade journal and I spent hours cutting out all these little scales that I was going to sew and for some reason I just can’t get anything to line up correctly and my sewing machine is misbehaving and this is a ridiculous run-on sentence and I’m upset that I wasted materials and AAARRRGGHHH.
*burns down the house*
Working on a new blog for my spiritual/nature-y stuff, since I would like to reserve this blog for boring life and cute things.
I spent a couple hours last night dying paper with nasty instant coffee (oh my god I can’t get the gross smell off of me. Didn’t seem to scent the paper though!!).
I decided that I should start my own journal/grimoire/book of shadows type of thing to just keep all my little bits and pieces of information. Pressed flowers, drawings, prayers, etc…
I don’t think of myself as a religious/spiritual person, but if I was going to lean towards anything it would be wicca/some form of paganism. I’ve always been someone who loves and believes in the power of nature. Herbalism, gemstones and crystals, the elements… all things I’ve always felt pretty connected to even though they were not at all part of my upbringing.
I’ve got six of ten signatures dyed and folded, and I want it to be 10 signatures (100 pages total). I’m going to do a faux dragon scale cover with more dyed and cut paper and sewn over with my sewing machine.
Darn it. I’m getting a bit bored/annoyed with my current location in Minecraft. Building a home in the jungle is fun and has beautiful scenery… but even on easy there are just too many mobs hiding in the dark jungle (even during the day) to be fun. And ocelots keep killing my chickens.
I have SO MUCH inventory though. The thought of moving 6 double chests worth of stuff somewhere else is not very fun.
What to do, what to do. There’s a rather pretty mega taiga biome way off my current map… hm.
Still too much of a wimp to try playing on a server. :(
Decided I didn’t like the direction the last face was going. Erased and started over again. Got the basic layers down but now my back hurts too much to sit at the table any longer… boo.
I was going to play Minecraft until my arms fell off, but all 4 of my mouse batteries are dead so that’s not happening for another few hours.
Instead I think I’ll play with the new makeup I got the other day and then work on that MH doll.
Man, I really need a Clawd Wolf for a project but the “for parts” and naked dolls on ebay seem so ridiculously priced and the sets with Draculara also seem pretty high (I mean, I understand why… but… I just want… cheapness! Especially since I’m not a collector, just a modder/repainter).
Might just have to get a Deuce and see if I can darken him myself.
Not a good night last night (worked until after 11 even though my shift was supposed to end at 9) and not a good morning today (Chris is kind of being a dick and bugging me while I was trying to sleep).
I am not in the mood to do anything except play Minecraft. But I have to go to work instead and try not to punch customers.
Watching Hannibal and starting to paint her.
It’s probably because I have crap watercolor pencils, but I can never get them to work right. So layers and layers of acrylic it is…
Treated myself to some new (on clearance) makeup and silicone tunnels today.
… and I feel bad. I always feel bad spending money on things for just me and I know I shouldn’t. I only spent maybe $30 on everything but uggghhhh.
Especially when I really should be saving up for a new computer. But I really really wanted to try a different concealer and there were two eyeshadow paletts I liked and they were only $2.75 each. And I actually needed the tunnels for work because they don’t want the o rings on my single flares to fall off into food (understandable).
I hate money. Money is dumb.
My mom bought me a deck of tarot-like cards “designed to activate your psychic voice and show you how to live the sixth-sensory life”.
So… I got these… from the same lady… who almost didn’t let me buy the Card Captor Sakura Clow Book with the cards inside when I was 11 because the cards were “too much like tarot cards” and “anti-christian” even though she’d seen the show and knew they weren’t used that way.
I’m so confused.
