The one where I grow concerned that girlyness may be taking me over

So, anyone who knows me at all (even if it’s just through here or the occasional drive-by friend) knows that I am not your typical girly girl. I don’t do dresses. I loathe the color pink. I don’t get all screamy and weepy when I hear about sparkly vampires. I’d prefer to jump in a mosh pit rather than go to a Miley Cyrus concert. *shudder* (Somehow, I think I missed my mark with Miley, but she’s the only person I could think of for some reason.) Lately, though, I’ve been leaning towards more girly things.

Example. I’ve always been one to wear make-up. ALWAYS. For a long time, that’s pretty much the only girly thing I had going for me. Well, that and the fact that I need to carry a purse. Nothing expensive or anything like that, but I’ve carried a purse since junior high. Oh, and shoes. I heart me some shoes. Again, nothing expensive, I just feel like I need to have shoes. LOTS of shoes. Recently though, I’ve decided that I want to get some dresses. o_O This has me slightly concerned, considering that I’ve only ever had two occasions where I felt that wearing a dress or skirt was pretty much a necessity – weddings and funerals.

My friend is having a party this weekend and I feel a need to buy and WEAR a summery dress. Mind you, my friend most likely will not be wearing a dress and, I’m not certain, but I’m pretty sure there won’t be many chicks there wearing dresses. I reallyreallyreally want to wear a summery dress and cute sandals. This is going to be an issue cuzz not only do I not own anything that comes anywhere NEAR that description, but I do not have the money to buy anything that fits that description. And the fact that I can’t go shopping so I can get something like that really pisses me off, which also has me concerned.

Maybe it’s the losing 20 lbs thing. Maybe there’s something in the water. Whatever the case, I feel a need to have pretty things and to be pretty. Thankfully I still loathe pink or else I’d think I’d gone full-out girl and have to lock myself in my room until I got over it.

Anyone else feeling somewhat not like themselves lately? Maybe it has something to do with it being really warm earlier than usual? Help me out here, intarwebs!


In which I attempt to stop slacking

I know, I know. It’s been almost a month since I last posted. And yes, I can still say almost a month cuzz, technically, I still have 1 day until it’s been a complete month. Yeah, that’s right. Suck it.


This time, the lack of entries has been due to pure frustration. I’m still dizzy as hell and there’s still no definitive diagnosis as to why. So, I’ve been kinda hanging out in limbo, twiddling my thumbs as I wait to see if there is a doctor who can figure it out. Good news is I do NOT have MS. And, as weird as it’s gonna sound, I’m kinda disappointed that MS wasn’t found. Not that I want to have it, but it would have been an ANSWER, ya know? Oh well. I’m still glad it wasn’t that, so I’m gonna quit my bitching while I’m ahead. 🙂

Other than sitting around, hoping to figure out what’s going on with me, I’ve begun my classes. It’s been interesting trying to transition back into school mode after having been out for over 10 years. (Holy shit. Just typing that made me feel SO.FUCKING.OLD.) I’m still not completely in the swing of it, but I’m hoping I will be soon. I think it’s the fact that I’m doing it all from home. Well, that and my hardcore addiction to the intarwebs.

My friend, Bobbi, graduated a couple weeks ago. That was the most excitement I’ve seen in a while. 😛 She graduated as The Smartest Person Ever To Live In Flint®, which was pretty damned awesome. Since I was there as Friend Of The Smartest Person Ever To Live In Flint®, I met my obligation to scream, yell and generally make an asshole out of myself in order to demonstrate how proud I was/am of her. Mandy and I were probably the loudest bitches at Perani Arena that day. Just sayin’. Oh! And I also taught Bobbi a valuable lesson about giving her camera to someone else to tend to. I thought I had demonstrated the same lesson a few times at the bar, but if I did, it obviously didn’t stick.

Damn, I'm a hottie.

You’ll have to excuse the horrid lighting and the bags under my eyes. I’ve been battling insomnia for most of my life and it seems to have decided to show the world that it’s winning the battle.

So, there you have it. What I’ve been doing the past month. I know it’s too much excitement for most of you to handle, so be sure you refer to me when you have to call 911 for an ambulance when you explode. I’m hoping to win a free Wii for sending the most people to the hospital due to excitement overload. 😀
