Bullet points are easier:

++ I have a dentist appointment in 45 minutes. I haven't been in about a year and I'm slightly worried that my teeth are falling out. Routine cleanings never end well for me.

++ Ashley and I hosted a dinner party Sunday night and got to play at being grownups for awhile and it was a lot of fun. There was thai food and wine and conversation and even a tickle fight. So, maybe not that grown up. Lots of fun while it lasted, though, I'm hoping we can do it again soon.

++ Actually, this weekend was pretty awesome, considering I worked for the majority of it. Racheal came to visit, and we watched TV and caught up on the last five months of our lives and went out for food and drinks at the redneck bar and it was generally a good time. I'm amazed at the amount of hangout time I packed into two and a half days considering I worked three full shifts. :p

++ Studio 60 )

++ We put up our Christmas tree last night. I'm so not into Christmas this year at all, but there's always something a little soothing about hanging up all those familiar ornaments. Other than that, I'm ready for January 1 now, thanks.

I had a whole bunch of things I wanted to actually write about, including TV and my technology woes and life in general, but the time has gotten away from me today and I'm leaving work early, so no such luck. Just know that The Office owns me (and I can too love both Pam and Karen THANKYOUVERYMUCH!), there is nothing quite so pretty as Winchester!angst, cheesy though it may sometimes be, and I've decided that I'm just not allowed to have nice things. I have a tendancy to break them. :p

Anyway, I'm headed out tonight, I'll be in Florida all next week with my sisters, so don't go thinking I was kidnapped by wild banshees or anything. Though, that might be more interesting than a week with my weird family. I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving, if you go in for that sort of thing.
evergleam: (ww - this is not what i do)
I'm starting to think I'm spending too much money on my newly acquired concert-habit. I blame Ashley. Just because I can.

Death Cab )

So, next concert. To see Damien Rice, or not to see Damien Rice. I'm still pondering.

++

Megan's coming home from Africa for a mini-vacation in December, and I'm kind of nervous. I know she'll still love me no matter what, but I haven't really been the best of friends since she left. I've called her once, sent her a few emails and text messages, but that's it. I've tried, I really have, but it's hard to come up with stuff to write to her about when my life feels so incredibly empty compared to what she's doing out there. What am I going to say? "Hey, it was great hearing about your 30 mile bike trip to villages all over Africa, guess what happened to Jim and Pam last week?!"

Anyway, I don't think I can make it up to her, but my newest idea is to fill up a journal of some kind with pictures and ramblings and stuff like that, and give it to her with strict instructions not to open it til she gets back to the bush-country. Though, for this to work, it means I've got to get started this weekend, so we'll see how that goes. Anyone have any ideas on other things I could fill a journal with? I have a feeling tales of coffee and law offices will get boring rather quickly.

I can't believe we're already two weeks into November. This year has gone by so fast. I really wish I had something to show for it.

I'm feeling hodgepodge-y today.

First: Weeee! )

Second: I keep saying that I don't think Jenna Fischer could get much more adorable, and then she keeps proving me wrong. I love that she keeps a blog that's pretty much just like most of ours. Mild spoilers in this one for this week's episode, but mostly it has Jenna wondering if she should all-out fangirl Jack Bauer when she meets him on Letterman this week. :p Seriously, how adorable is she?

Third: I didn't do much of note this weekend, I worked Friday and Sunday, as per usual. Saturday, I watched a lot of Supernatural and then made carrot and ginger soup for dinner. Rachel came over and we gossiped and ate lemon bars right out of the pan and it was wonderful. I've got a lot of hours coming up at B&N with the holiday season starting and all (boooohissss), so I guess it's good to get in my goofing off where I can. Do I sound resigned? I feel very resigned.

Fourth: I do have some television-related things I could say, though.

Dexter 1x05 )

Torchwood 1x04 )

And since I'm here, what about VM, huh?

Veronica Mars S3 )


Fifth: The Foo Fighters' acoustic tour DVD will be released at the end of the month. The Amazon page doesn't have much info on it yet, but I know they were recording at the show I saw. I hope some of our stuff makes it. Yay!

I saw the Decemberists Sunday night.

Set list and other things. )

++

I went to grab lunch at the courthouse today, and there was a grown woman in a cheerleading costume. My first though was "She's too old to be in high school." My second thought was "What's a professional cheerleader doing in the county courthouse?" And finally my third thought was "Oh. Right. Halloween."

So, happy Halloween! Sadly, I have to work tonight. I wonder if I can rustle up some devil horns or something to wear with my uniform.

Also, I'm very much behind on all things TV-related at the moment. I'm thinking tomorrow night will be catch-up, and then maybe I'll post something. I watched the opening scene of tonight's VM, and I have a feeling I'm actually going to have some things to say. I'm a little disappointed in people's reactions to this week's Torchwood, though. I had such high hopes for that show. I don't know if I'll like it, but I'm pretty sure I won't stop watching so long as there's John Barrowman to be had on my computer screen.

Oh, and I'm trying to find a good concert to go to between December 17ish and December 29ish. Megan's coming back from Africa for two weeks and her only request for me is to find a concert to go to. If anybody in the DC area hears about anything good, mind letting me know? I'm looking at a few websites, and most places don't have much announced for that far in advance yet.
evergleam: (dlm - sleepy george)
Things that are good:

1. Decemberists concert this Sunday! So ridiculously excited.

2. Ashley brought me green curry for dinner last night. I have another meal's worth left over. I've been thinking about it allllll morning.

3. My boss is back from vacation, which means I have work to do again! I'm not sitting around clawing my eyes out for something to pass the time. Also, he's in a really good mood.

4. I got to hang out with Stew this weekend, which is happening less and less often these days. I also got to see other people I never see anymore and go on a hayride through the woods and attempt to freak Ashley out, so overall, I call this weekend a win.


Things that are less good:

1. My dad and my stepdad both are expecting me to spend Thanksgiving with them, it turns out. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to handle this one. I'd rather spend it with my sisters, but I don't really want to go to Florida for an entire week. They're both going to be pissy with me, whatever I choose, so maybe it's best I hide under a rock? Or take my uncle up on his offer to escape to Boston, instead. Having three (four?) families was so much easier when I was twelve.

2. It must be a cyclical thing, because the insomnia's hitting me hard the last couple of days again. 3.5 hours of sleep Saturday and Sunday night, and last night it was 1:30 before I fell asleep, even though I was exhausted. Not cool, man. Not cool.


Things I'm not sure how to classify:

1. My mom's boyfriend is out of town this weekend and she wants me to come down. Yay? Maybe I can convince her to bring my sisters up here Saturday afternoon.
evergleam: (tw - jaaaaaack)
So, Torchwood. I kind of love it. I've been verging on John Barrowman obsession for a little while, although I've been trying to keep it to myself. And then I watched the first two episodes and decided to throw discretion out the window. *g*

I got my hands on S1 of BSG, I think I'm going to attempt to watch it again. I got sidetracked by Six Feet Under, but now that the new season started I figured it's time to try and catch up for real. Also! The Office tonight! And Winchesters! Good thing I've got TV to keep me going!

I didn't think I really had anything to say about The Office, but I've been reading other people's reactions and I figured I'd chime in, too.

The Coup )



Other things:
1. I really like Beck's new album, but I think I like the design-your-own-liner-notes-on-Beck's-new-album even better.

2. I've been watching Supernatural again because the Winchester brothers are very pretty when they angst, and because it's fun harassing Ashley about evil clowns.

3. My boss had a nice chat with me today at lunch about how I close myself off in groups of people and I need to stop doing that and get some self-confidence already. Now, if only he'd tell me how to do that, I'd be in business. :p

4. Ashley and I got tickets to see Death Cab in November! We have failed to do this every single time they've ever come around before, so yay for that.

5. I think the weather might be out to ruin my DC plans for tomorrow. I still really want to go, but I'm not sure how interested I am in walking around the mall in the cold wind and rain. Plus, my favorite museum is closed for renovations for the next two years or something. Which is LAME, by the way.

6. I'm so sick of working every single Friday night. I would much rather see The Departed tonight than work.
evergleam: (ww - we'll do what's hard)
It's my sister's birthday today. She's 17 and I remember when she was born and that will never stop being weird.

It's also [livejournal.com profile] egosomnio's birthday. Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] egosomnio! We should look into, you know, meeting up again sometime. Once every year and half just isn't that great a number for me. :p

My uncle wants me to come up to Boston for Thanksgiving. My stepfather wants me to come with him and my sisters to his parents' house in Florida for Thanksgiving. I'm not particularly inclined to do either, but I'm afraid if I don't do one of them, I won't get any Thanksgiving dinner at all, and that would be sad for me. Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday. I'm used to getting three separate Thanksgiving dinners, people. THREE. (Of course, I don't really want my third option, which is to have Thanksgiving with my dad's new family. Which reminds me, I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen my baby sister in the almost-year she's been alive. In case you were wondering, that number is four.)

UGH. DELIMA.

I've been informed that Regina Spektor is playing a free show in Baltimore tomorrow night. I kinda want to go, but I don't really want to go by myself. Also, it's at 6pm, and I'm not sure I'd make it in time. Hmmmm. But, you know, free. I'm not sure I should pass that up.

Annnnd, I have to work tonight. I went into New York & Co. last night and they're hiring and I picked up an application, but I don't know if I'm really up for switching jobs right before Christmas. Maybe I'll see what the pay is and make a decision from there. Actually, I should just find a better paying retail job, everyone will be hiring right about now. Blehhh. It's just too much work. I'm too tired to try and make friends again.

On the plus side, I have this Saturday off. I was thinking of taking the metro into DC and doing a little museum-hopping. I haven't been to the museums since we saw the Dada exhibit, and I haven't been alone in longer than I can remember. I'm hoping it'll be a good way to spend some quality Heather-time with myself, rather than sitting at home and watching DVDs. :p

I'm feeling very brain-jumbled today. I could go for a nice long coma nap.
evergleam: (es - okay? okay.)
I had a lot of things planned to do last night. I needed to clean my room, because it's an absolute disaster area. I needed to fold my laundry, I wanted to go to the grocery store, and there were about eight different posts I wanted to comment on. Instead, there was a thunderstorm and I was feeling a little bit emo, and so I watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which, you know, I do sometimes.

And then I felt this need to go through caps and save all my favorites, which pretty quickly turned into a picspam. I started putting this together, and then I fell asleep, and now I'm feeling decidedly less down, but I spent so much time on it last night that I feel like I should post it. Plus, Kate is pretty.

In other news,

1. I'm way more tired than I have any right to be this morning,

2. the weather is nice enough today that we have the front door wide open, which only makes me want to be outside instead of stuck in here,

3. and I'm still depressed about Doctor Who. You know how when you're right in the thick of an obsession with a show or a 'ship and every song you hear is about that thing? Yeah, I've currently appropriated three or four Decemberists songs just for the Doctor and Rose. So. Yeah. I wish I'd watched this with everyone else now, if only so I'd have someone to be depressed with at the moment. :p

It's Wednesday, which means I have to work tonight, which sucks, but it also means I'll have Project Runway waiting for me when I get home, which doesn't suck. My mantra this week is just-make-it-to-Saturday. I just had a blissful day of sitting around in my pjs doing nothing, but I already feel like I need another break. I think maybe I just need a real change, a break in routine. I hate routine. I think really I should quit Barnes & Noble, I've been there way too long as it is. Although, I don't know if just changing second jobs is really going to help much at all.

Doctor Who ramblings. Like, actually rambling. There's no coherence here at all. )

This show makes me miss being an English major. What I wouldn't give to hash that out in a room full of English-y kids. Also, I need a Doomsday Rose icon, like, five hours ago. I should get on that.

Other things. My weekend was mostly uneventful, except I went to see the Violent Femmes in Baltimore on Friday night, which was all kinds of awesome. They had a tuba soloist, which, totally cool. Also, they played Please Do Not Go, which I know was one of their more popular singles so of course they would, but it's my favorite, so suck it, Turk.

Today, it's rainy and cold outside, which is good because we need it and I'm sick of the humidity, but bad because it's rainy and cold outside. Ashley and I are going to visit Aster for a bit tonight, which should be fun and relaxing, and then I may come home and settle in with some of the Doctor Who Confidentials.

Next weekend was supposed to be my vacation, which kinda blows. I really want to get up to Boston before it gets too cold. Hopefully right in the middle of autumn, before the leaves all fall. Next weekend, however, is the Busch Gardens trip, and I'm really starting to look forward to it. I hope it's cool enough for sweatshirts by then. I miss my sweatshirts. And do you know how long it's been since I could just bum around somewhere in jeans and my chucks? Plus, there's the whole rollercoasters-hotel-with-friends-dinner-and-swimming thing, too. ;)

I have to pee.

1. I sliced open my left hand index finger last night. I was trying to cut a bagel and decided I should cut my finger open instead. The gimongous bandaid on my finger is making for some excellent typing skills this morning, too. This is why I shouldn't be allowed out of the house.

2. I wish it would cool off already. I'm so sick of waking up all hot and sweaty with my covers kicked off the bed.

3. I am so beyond excited for The Office S2 DVDs. A 17 minute gag reel plus two and a half hours of deleted scenes? I want this now.

4. Ashley and I are meeting [livejournal.com profile] madmoisellestar and some others for a cheapo baseball game tonight. I got one of my friends from work hooked on Arrested Development, so sometime this week she's going to come over so we can marathon S3, hopefully tomorrow so we can get a little Project Runway action in, too. My boss is going out of town at the end of the week, so I'm hoping the next few days are pretty low-key around here. That's pretty much in for this week in Heatherland.

5. I'm trying to get back into the groove of posting stuff, can you tell? :p

Sooo...no one's going to be in the office with me for a couple of hours, and I'm running out of work to do, so I kinda wanna do the top 5 meme again, and I'm gonna steal Teija's line:

So, the Foo Fighters played an acoustic show at DAR Constitution Hall on Tuesday night, and I just happened to be there.

Setlist )

I say this every time, but those boys put on such a great show. Taylor and Dave have this adorable chemistry on stage. And! Pat Smear was there! I really liked the flow of this type of show, too, Dave got to tell us a lot of little stories about the songs, and made fun of the hometown accent, and how he left us all in the dust as soon as he got famous. I really love seeing him here, because he grew up here and used to record here and knows the area and makes all the right jokes about the place.

My life is one step closer to complete, though, because I have seen February Stars performed live. Hands down, that's my favorite Foo Fighters song, and I never ever thought that some random song from the end of an album they made almost ten years ago would be played on stage for me, but there it was. For the encore, he came out alone and told us a really long story (that we've all basically heard before) about writing Friend of a Friend in Washington when he was living with Kurt and Chris. He wailed out on Best of You, and then told the drummer joke ("what's the last thing the drummer said before getting kicked out of the band?") and dedicated Everlong to all the drummers in the audience. It was so much fun to just sit back and listen to the man's songs, and I'm not lying when I tell you that every time I have the opportunity to go see these guys play, I will gladly fork over my money.

Project Runway )

I keep meaning to write about a million other things -- I went to Bethesda and saw Laura and James last weekend, and we had Indian food and frappachinos and spice cake and it was lots of fun and needs to become more than an annual thing. (Laura, I swear I'm switching my files over! Music soon, I promise!) I want to do that character/'ship/episode meme, I want to post pictures, including one of my new (green!) computer. Also, I'm trying to make plans for my upcoming work-free weekend, which is fast being filled up with things that aren't sitting around in my pajamas doing nothing like I'd originally planned. Which, I guess is actually okay with me. Having plans and seeing people is nice, too.

Anyway, I have a ton of work I'm not doing. So I should do that. And also link to possibly one of the greatest JIMspams I've ever seen. Mostly for my benefit, but also for Ashley, who will hopefully see this before she runs off to Newport again. :)
evergleam: (es - here comes a better version of me)
This week I:

1. Finally, finally, finally saw Fiona Apple live. )

2. Made a list of things I really, really miss about college. )

3. Developed a new crush on someone I believe to be an Asst. State's Attny at the Courthouse next door. My tastes will never change. He's older though, and probably married. I forgot to scope him out for a ring. Hmmmm.

4. Had an absolutely fanfreakingtastic time with Ashley and my B&N girls, even though it meant staying up so late I still feel like a zombie. I'm hoping for more wacky fun tonight.

5. Overslept because I thought it was Saturday morning, when it was, in fact, Friday morning. Seriously. I turned off my alarm and thought, "Why did I leave this on when it's Saturday?" Ugh. I came into work almost 45 minutes late. What's that? I desperately need a vacation? Yeah, I'm not going to argue with you.

6. Started making plans for my vacation! ;) Boston, baby. Four days, hopefully, and then a weekend trip to Busch Gardens with Ashley. September cannot come fast enough.
