Writer's Block: Green-eyed monster

If your romantic partner told you that, given the chance, he or she would sleep with a celebrity/public figure you disrespect, would you be amused, jealous, or bewildered? How would they react if the situation were reversed?

It would depend on the celebrity, but it would either be amused or bewildered. I honestly couldn't bring myself to be jealous, because there are several celebrities I would sleep with given the chance, though I think they're all respectable enough that if I had a romantic partner, I'd like to think they would be able to accept it. :P

Shoes

When I'm looking at shoes online, I am essentially distracted from almost everything else. I'll even procrastinate going to the bathroom or eating for one more page. There's something about looking at shoes (or even clothes) that I'll never have that just monopolizes my attention. I could click through pages of shoes for hours.

On that note, I just wanted to link a pair of shoes that I think are absolutely gorgeous. That's a classy-ass pair of heels, if I do say so myself.

Wow, I totally do not write in this often enough. >>

Not much to say lately anyway. Just letting you all know I'm still alive! :D

I had the weirdest dream....

I was like... undead or something, but still very much human looking, and I was in this organization where I was ordered to look after this little blonde child star or somesuch.. and we were at a show (at the Jubilee Theatre to be exact) and this portly man comes up and starts sucking up to this little girl, and she's like, eating it all up, and after much eye-rolling on my part, he finally tells her he has to go, and to enjoy the show, and he says something to me along the same lines, but calls me "Miss Vampire Girl." Now in my dream, this REALLY offended me, because I muttered, "I'm not a vampire. But if I were, he would not still be standing..." I was pissed off enough that I had to stand up and leave, and send in one of my other coworkers while I walked it off.

Actually, pretty sure I was my death knight on Warcraft... =/

A Leap and A Prance!

I've just started reading The Two Towers, and something came to mind. Legolas is just... so much more energetic in the books than in the movies. The Company has just went their separate ways, and Legolas, Aragorn and Gimli are all just entering Rohan in search of Merry and Pippin. They start running, but in my mind, all I can picture is: Aragorn, running like a normal man; Gimli, running in a waddling fashion with short legs; .....Legolas, leaping and prancing. I CAN'T STOP HIM FROM LEAPING. He's a ballerina, there is no doubt in my mind.

That's really all I had to say. >>

Tattoos again.

I still want a tattoo on my wrist. The idea really appeals to me.

Any ideas for simplistic, solid-lined designs? The priest symbol is a bust, too detailed for that area. I have begun thinking perhaps something LotR-esque would be suitable, or anything that expresses my inner geek, maybe Phoenix Wright-centric.

...Hm.

So, I went in this afternoon and I got my tragus pierced.

I am never getting another piercing by myself. D: And not because it was a bad experience, because it was actually a very satisfying one, I just get way too nervous. Someone's gotta be with me.

So basically, the guy that did it was awesome, he went through all the motions. He told me that my tragus is a little different than most because it has a little dip in it, so it has a bump near the top and then another at the bottom, so we went over placement preferences. He dotted it where he would normally pierce it (in the center), then let me take a look. I wasn't sure right away, so I asked to see the dot on the lower bump, because that was his other suggestion. I ended up going with the higher placement, and boy, am I happy I did. It sits JUST right in my ear, and it looks extremely good on me (not being conceited here, it really does look natural... or as natural as a foreign object in your body can be).

As for the pain, it was minimal. I actually didn't even register any pain because I was too wrapped up with the AWFUL CRUNCHING TEARING noise as the needle went through. It was that which did me in. He was fighting with the ball and I was sitting there, and I was literally trying not to vomit. I almost didn't have faith in myself to keep it down. I just wanted him to get the damn ball in place so I could ask if there was a bathroom, and I was sweating and shaking just a bit. He aked if I was feeling okay, and if I needed a glass of water. Of course I took the water, my mouth was as dry as the sahara, and I was insanely grateful for him asking (I'm not the type to voice my issues, and I was too busy taking deep breaths). As soon as he opened the door to the room we were in though, a burst of fresh air came in and wow, it bascially made me feel a hundred times better, and between that and the water, I was pretty much feeling right as rain, and was good to go once he got that stubborn ball in place.

And he said my tragus cartilige was actually softer than most. I can only imagine what I would have done if it weren't that easy. D:

Overall, I am happy with it, and I'm glad I went through with it.

Also, the staff liked my "I <heart> <gun> <zombie>" shirt. They told me to have fun shooting zombies as I left.

A question for the bookworms and such --

I've noticed this several times in older pieces of literature, where a name (usually of a place) is blanked out, as in it's written, for example, as "-------shire." It bothers me because it ruins the continuity of the sentence for me, but maybe it would bother me less if I knew exactly why this occurs. Any answers?

So, this needs to come here NAO.

My only complaint? Needs more Phoenix. However, the cravat blowing in the wind at the end ALMOST makes up for it.

Dear customers,

I would like to propose a list of drive-thru etiquette.

That about sums it up...

Two more specific shout-outs:

To the lady first thing in the morning,
Maybe it's because it WAS first thing in the morning, but you confused me when you ordered a medium 2s1c, an extra large half coffee/half hot chocolate and a small half coffee/half hot chocolate and then asked me which one the regular was.... First of all, you had no regular, and second... they were all different sizes. Sorry if my face looked like confusion when I pointed at the medium.

And to the man who had the crazy look in his eyes when picking out his donuts,
No, cinnamon rolls do not count as donuts. No, I will not give you cinnamon rolls in your box of a dozen donuts. No, not even if you say, "But I want them. I don't care if they're not donuts, I want THOSE." You obviously didn't want them badly enough because you didn't take long changing your mind/reverting your facial expression back from that of a 5-year old about to throw a tantrum when I told you I would have to charge you differently.
