So...I am a bit late with this. But late is better than not at all. Right? :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

2010 was quite the interesting year, and 2011 looks even more exciting. Last year I got the chance to play at Gallifrey One in February, and then really show off at Infinitus in July. Both events left me wanting more and forced me to really open my eyes to some truths. I spent the rest of the year making plans for 2011 and beyond, and started seeing a psychiatrist to help realize what those truths were.

I can't wait to see where this year takes me and hope that the friends I have made on LJ this past year will only be the tip of the iceberg.

Best wishes to everyone!

YEAH Christmas

YEAH! I got around to hanging Christmas lights yesterday (or today depending on your view-its today still for me). It was so cheerful and holiday like to get them up. I really should have put them up weeks ago. Got the colored lights up around the garage (though we ended up rehanging them a bit later). Went to put up the icicle lights and decided I should check them before climbing the stool and hammering nails. It ended up being a wise decision as every other strand of icicle was out. It was very odd! Not whole sections or two or three dropping icicle sections, like every other strand. Needless to say those ended up being trashed! Now that they are there I wonder if Home Depot still recycles them? Oh well! So the grand plan to put up tons of light ended up with only the garage ones but success all the same!

It was wonderful timing as Saturday night was the Holiday/Birthday bash. Loads of fun was had with good friends coming over and spending a nice night having English Dinner and drinks. Left for work before the games came out though, so can't wait to read some other stories from last night.

Only 6- YES SIX- more days till Christmas! Yeah! Must do shopping!!!!

I spent the evening trying to sleep but instead my head went round and round about us. It never settled always bouncing always jumping to conclusions and assumptions. Then I'm leaving and you ask if I love you and that I am acting weird. I try to refute your statement but can't without starting something or hurting someone. So I leave and spend the drive to work stressed and having my head run around in circles some more. It drives me crazy, never being able to settle anymore.

Characters

Hmmm.....there are so many characters that wonder through my head. It's been a nice day I have spent a rainy day watching movies that have only made my characters come out to bounce around. Watched New Moon earlier (the movies and book were far from classics, but I enjoy certain things). Enjoyed watching Alice and Jane, makes me squee every time they come on screen. Jane is so menacing and evil and Alice is well just Alice, who can't love the randomness that she is.

Watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix now. This movie is great...I get Bellatrix Lestrange, Tonks, Luna and Ginny! Though Ginny really isn't in my head, I just love her character.

Now all I need is some way to get Rose from Doctor Who and Dru from Buffy together into this somehow and all my characters would be happy!

It's nice to have this simple afternoon, makes my head fell better. My head has been all over the place lately and while this doesn't make everything better its a nice bonus.

Happy Friday anyone who reads this!

Kitty Tree

My better half's birthday was just the other day and we were lucky enough to spend it with the in-laws (that's another post). It was a tradition when she was growing up that Christmas couldn't start until after her birthday. Well that just doesn't work for us....Christmas is way too cool to have wait until after her birthday. So as has become custom for us, we have a beautiful tree up in our living room, well in advance of her birthday.

Last year for the bug's birthday we got her a cat from a work friend. We took precautions during Jayda's first Christmas since she had never seen a Christmas tree (her old mommy was Jewish). Everything seemed to go pretty darn good, the tree made it up all year with no serious problems. This year came along and we figured since last year was okay we could be a bit more free with the tree trimming.....not so good this year. Of course some of it was my fault (I hung a pair of small Mc Donald Happy Meal plush Jaq & Gus-Gus toys from the bottom tree branches). Needless to say Jayda enjoyed the treat, a week later and I think Gus still has some slobber marks. Not sure if Jayda has decided this year its fun to play with Christmas or if she's mad that there is no
Hanukkah items in the house. It is really kinda funny watching her play with the tree and hide under the branches. So while reading some of my friends journals I found this video and it made me think of Jayda. I just had to tell my little story and share this video with you all....

Christmas

To all out that I owe Christmas cards too... I promise I will get to them this week, really! :)

To be honest I feel sort of bad about being late really. Earlier in the month I was all into the Christmas spirit, but lately not so much. Some of the reasons behind that I think I will post later in a locked entry; but needless to say the month is half over and there is so much to do in the next few days I can't believe it, and all that stuff has really cramped my Holiday feel. I have time the next few days while I am at library Nutcracker shows so should be able to address and mail out my cards.

Hopefully I will remember to log on later and write about all the other stuff going on.

Hope all is well with everyone!

Holiday 2010

Can't believe that it is already the end of November. It doesn't feel right mentally to have December 1st right around the corner. Of course for those of you here in SoCal it definitely feels like winter and Christmas!

With that odd observation out of the way I have to admit that I am already feeling a bit of the Christmas spirit. I think some of that holiday spirit must be because I so totally missed out on celebrating Halloween the way I wanted too. So I wanted to try something a bit new for me this holiday season, cards! If your interested in exchanging or receiving a card of some sort this year please follow the link below. If not then just ignore this, no heard feelings. If you have some unusual request or whatever please use the 'other' buttons.

Hope to have a bunch of cards to do..... :)

Second Appointment

Well my second appointment with my psychiatrist is in a few hours. Looking forward to it, as much as one can look forward to such an appointment. It's been an odd three weeks since my first visit. I had homework that I haven't been nearly as successful on, darn life getting in the way. But it is nice to have a random person to talk to that I neither expect anything from nor expect to interact with outside of our appointments.

In regards to my homework, I have a few ideas on what I was supposed to think and write about but the whole idea of planning a future multiple years out just seems well---silly. I mean after all the changes in my life since I graduated high school, I just can't imagine trying to plan my future so straightforward. I know some things that I would like to see come to pass in the next few years; but have issues that need to be addressed first. In many cases body image and a connection between what I think I look like, want to look like and actually look like need to merge. I care less and less about family and work and social constructs, just would like to have the will and assistance to change other things.

In regards to family I had an interesting conversation with my dad, the other afternoon. I am not sure what will come out of it or where it came from, but it could definitely speed up some of the family conversations that may need to happen one day.

Finally took care of a 'personal' issue last week that I have been putting off for a few years. It felt right to finally have it done, but can't stop myself from wondering if it is only one small step in a grander plan.

Halloween is this weekend which is great. I love this time of year, the costumes the fun and freedom, all of it. Still not sure what I will dress up as or if I will. It's a bit sad because Halloween is really one of my favorite times of the year and it all just flashes by so fast and with so little involvement from me.

Well that's enough rambling for now.
Less than 3 weeks till HP7, part 1... YEAH!!!!
