After about 5 months of neglect I finally updated my list like 2 weeks ago and promptly failed to link to it so here it is.

I've been neglecting lj for quite some time now, mostly due to the fact that I am incredibly lazy and do nothing all the time, therefore having nothing to update about. I've been slowly working on making a new layout but I'm having a bit of trouble getting things just right. Anyone have any good tips on how to make a large .gif file not look grainy?

I want to write a decent entry tomorrow, when I'm not feeling so blah, but I'll probably forget, or simply be too lazy to actually write it. We'll see.

I hope everyone had a great holiday. Mine was pretty quiet. We ended up staying home which we haven't done in ages.

I'm off to Texas for the weekend to meet my nephew! =0D I'm leaving straight after work tomorrow and getting back late Sunday night. So I probably won't be around.

Quick question, if anyone would know. Would I be able to take a standard sized memory foam pillow on a plane with me? I'm only asking cuz I'm not checking any baggage and I can't sleep on anything else but I haven't been able to find out anywhere if it's allowed.

I hope you all have a good weekend. *hugs*

I'm leaving in about 4 hours for the airport. I'm visiting my best friend Paula for a week. My sis and I are going to throw her a baby shower. As we're flying into Houston this time around, we're detouring to have lunch with [ profile] corsiva!!!

I'm so excited!!!!! I can hardly contain myself.

I only wish I could stick around longer. Alas.

Updated list can be found here. I completely forgot to post this, I got it in just under the wire. There's no weigh-in this month because I skipped the gym in August and never got weighed in. I sincerely doubt I lost anything though. *sigh*

I will be spending my weekend camping in Wildwood with my friends. If no one hears from me by Tuesday send out the search party. I doubt I'll get any service on my phone where we'll be but if I do I'll try to be online at some point.

I really need to pay some bills in a minute or I'll be screwed. Thank god for online bill pay. *loves the interwebs*

I've had a pretty busy month, and I really would like to post about it but I've been lazy and tired and just a shmo so I haven't done it yet. Expect massive picspam posts in the future.

I hope everyone in the States has a wonderful holiday weekend!

I'm finally done.

[Poll #1025808]
blu_22: (7.21.07)
It's currently 1:42 AM and I've just gotten home from picking up my copy of Deathly Hallows. I waited to get home before I opened it because I want to enjoy it properly. Before I do though I just wanted to make this post which I've been trying to get out for a few days now.

Five years ago, my life changed. After much protest and disgust on my end at what I perceived to be an overrated fad, Mrs. Gonzales the children's librarian I was working under sat me down on a slow afternoon and shoved a book in my hands and wouldn't let me move until I'd read it. And thus began my journey with Harry Potter.

Since then I've met an amazing group of people, all brought together by a book. I went seeking for others to discuss it with on a then-weekly Mugglenet chat room. Eventually the Sanctuary became my home and you all became my family. Trin, Madam, Lamy, Waen, AD, Jamie, Hinky, Lei, Na` tala, Nora, Ginny, Phyre, Cindy. You were all there with me from the beginning. Most of us have grown apart, many of you will never read this probably, but all of you will always hold a special place in my heart.

From there I was introduced to livejournal where my family has grown exponentially. Some of you I met through my brief but incredibly amusing stint in roleplay, some because of your incredible artistic and writing skills of which I am in awe, and others through friends of friends. You are all amazing wonderful people.

In a few minutes my life is going to change again. My journey is coming to an end. I've been crying on and off all day. I'm still sort of in denial even though I've had the book in my hands for over an hour. I don't know what life will be like after this is done but I'm glad to have experienced it with you all, and hope you will all be with me through the next chapter of my life.

Enjoy everybody.

To anyone who might have some knowledge in this I need some advice.

I just bought a Mac Book Pro less than a month ago. I just found out today that it's been updated.

Is there anything I can do about this? If I had known I'd have waited another month to buy it. Can it be exchanged? Do I have any recourse? Anyone have any advice?

Not that anyone would be looking for me, but just in case, my sister scored tickets to tonight's Mets game. That's where I'll be. I'm online through my cell phone should anyone need to reach me.

Who wants to come with me? Anyone? Beuller?

Other things I'm sad about: WTF's with all the finales SUCKING this year? Three of my favorite shows get the axe only to be replaced by mindless drivel. With a few exceptions, instead of leaving me excited with anticipation for next season, most of my shows left me sobbing and depressed. And I'm really not looking forward to anything new next fall. BLAH!

Also: my progress. I slacked off durng the month of april. I gained back 2 1/2 lbs. but I did manage to lose a bit in the measurements, though only by fractions. I also didn't make any progress past the things that I have to do monthly. I've already rectified the list part so far in May. The weight-loss is not going quite as fast as I'd like.

I need some cheering up. =0/ Thank god for Pirates this weekend.

I am currently updating from my brand spanking shiny new Mac Book Pro.

FINALLY! I am finally rid of my piece of shit PC.


Anyone with Mac experience that might want to throw any tips or pointers my way, any programs I should know about or avoid, it would be greatly appreciated.

I haven't had a proper update in a while. Not much has been going on. My weekend in Atlantic City was not what I expected it to be. It was a bit more chaotic than I had hoped, but it was enjoyable all the same. Especially the spa. If you ever get a chance to be in one for a whole day I'd definitely recommend it. Especially the herbal wrap and the massage. I wasn't as lucky at the casinos this time around as I was my first time in AC. Hopefully next time my luck will change.

Things at home and work haven't changed much. But they will be soon, I'll be doing some major overhauling on my resume this weekend so I can start looking for a new job. In July I'll have been at my current job for a year, which is something that I needed for my resume. I'd like to have something new by the end of the summer at least.

Speaking of the summer one of my cousins is getting married in Niagara Falls in the first week of August. I'm totally looking forward to going. I've never been there. We might even take a trip up to Montreal while we're there.

I need to update my list for this month along with my weight progress but I'm dead tired at the moment.
blu_22: (Rupert)
So today was my 25th birthday. The world largely forgot about it, which isn't really a surprise, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I actually dressed nicely for work, in the lovely new clothes I bought while in AC. I came home to two dozen roses and two bouquets of freesia. Someone lovely got me my favorite red velvet cake. Not a big deal, but a bunch of little things that really made me happy.

I hope everyone else had a good day too.
blu_22: (Rant)
I am so angry right now I can't even think straight. I'm supposed to be in Atlantic City right now with my friends. Instead I'm on my front stoop fuming.

My brother has been using the family car to go to work since he totaled his. He knows I needed the car this weekend. He knows I was supposed to pick up my best friend at the airport. He was supposed to be home from work 5 hours ago.

I'm still waiting. My friends are waiting. I won't get there till God knows what hour. So much for my stress-free birthday weekend.

I woke up this morning listening to the morning show on the local station Z100. I hadn't been awake very long, but I'm pretty sure I was fairly conscious because I had just called my sister at work. Anyway, I had to wait for my dad to get out of the shower so I sat back down in bed to wait.

All of a sudden I swear to GOD I heard the HP music come on and this commercial started saying that today and today only HP and the Deathly Hallows would be available for a limited time only before it goes on official release on July 21st, and to check with your local store. At first I thought it was some kind of spoof because the station is notorious for their commercials. The webcast has some lovely ads for Straight Eye for the Queer Guy, and P.E.T.A Pan, the musical that's against fur.

But there was nothing in the commercial that made me think it was a joke, it was all pretty straight forward. This is going to drive me crazy if they're actually putting some copies out there, you know like advance screenings for the movies? But I've never heard of that for books, especially HP books which are harder to get to than reaching nirvana practically.

My radio station is mean. >=0(

Ok well I thought I had updated this list in March to record February's progress but I guess I haven't. I'm getting it in just under the wire. I'm only 3 months in and I've already started slacking. There's a few things that I won't complete on my list as I haven't done them the required amount of times for their given period, like updating my lj once a week. I suck.

Anyway here's my updated list for February's progress. I'll mark March's progress next week after my weigh in.

Speaking of weigh in, here are my measurements for February.

Date: 3/7/07 )

There are a bunch of things I need to update on including Comic Con which was awesome, but right now I need to get to bed because I have some major baking to do tomorrow for easter.

I've "updated" my list here Updated in quotes because I've only managed to complete one thing last month which was joining a gym. I did however manage to do all the things I was supposed to do either weeky or monthly so it's a slow progression.

Hello all you folks in LJ land. I missed updating last week so this week's update is probably going to be pretty long.

Long rambly entry ahoy! )
blu_22: (ARGH!)
blu_22: (Side By Side)
I wanted to thank everyone who commented on my last entry. It really meant a lot to me, especially those of you who don't comment so often. It's nice to know you're there reading at least.

Things are better around here than they were last week. The hardest part is trying to get used to Mimi not being around. She was always at our feet or sniffing around for food or sleeping by the door while we were watching tv. The other day my mom accidentally dropped a box of cereal and I was waiting to hear her tags and paws coming from my room to scarf down the unexpected treat and it hit me again that she was gone. I thought Princess might come but it turns out she's not a fan of Kix.

I think Princess is taking it the hardest. She was basically Mimi's shadow. She wouldn't do anything unless Mimi did it first. She's been moping around the house more than usual. A day or two after it happened I picked up Mimi's collar and when the tags clinked, Princess went crazy looking everywhere for her. I feel so bad because she doesn't understand. I think that's the worst, not being able to do anything. The house is too quiet without her.

Anyway, I wanted to thank you guys. *hugs all around* Now on to happier subjects.

Tomorrow is my parents 25th Anniversary. They don't usually celebrate it any further than some flowers to acknowledge the day. My parents never were big on celebrating. But since this is a small milestone I wanted to do something special for them. Originally my sister and I wanted to send them on a vacation to the Caribbean or something along those lines. They never got to have a honeymoon. Unfortunately my dad doesn't have set, steady hours at work so it'd be hard to plan a surprise trip for them, and we couldn't afford to do it this year anyway. We decided instead to take them out to dinner on Saturday night. My whole family is going to be there along with my godmother's family. Hopefully the surprise will work out as planned.

And now on to mindless ramblings about TV.

I'm soooooooooooooooooooo glad my shows are finally back on. I didn't have to hear the evil troll speak tonight. Thank god for the CW being the only station smart enough to not have him on.

I think Gilmore Girls has improved a lot since the beginning of this season. I really enjoyed this episode. Poor Lane.

As for VM, have I mentioned how much I love Mac? Because I do! And WHERE?!?! do I know that guy from?! It's driving me mad! I can't place him but I know him from somewhere. Also, Logan is a DUMBASS, Veronica is a Dumbass, Dick is well...Dick, and Piz is so screwed. =0( WHERE'S WALLACE!?!?!
blu_22: (Logan Crying)
My dog Mimi died this afternoon. She'd been pretty out of it all week, she seemed very tired. My mom came home from some errands and saw that she wasn't herself. She tried to give her a bit of water and she just stopped breathing. The vet said she'd had a stroke which can happen with Cushing's Disease.

I'm just glad she wasn't alone and that my mom was home with her when it happened.

I miss her already.

blu_22: (Smiles)
So it's been a while since I properly updated. This entry will be a smattering of things that have happened in the last few weeks.

I never posted about my Christmas haul. It wasn't much but it was fantastic. I made out with an awesome bag from Fossil, a few DVDs, $50 from both my grandmother and godmother, as well as a few other things but I saved the best for last. My sister who is the most awesome sibling in the world bought me a Lego Castle Set. I know you're all going 'huh?' right now so I will explain why this is the most awesome gift in the history of the universe.

When I was a wee little Blu, my mom asked me what I wanted for my fifth birthday. This is the first time I ever rememeber consciously asking for something that I really wanted. I asked for a Lego castle set. Sadly, my parents couldn't afford it because they were ridiculously expensive (still are) and also it presented quite the chokng hazard for my then-two year old brother. (He's turning 22 tomorrow. Damn that's scary.) So I never got my castle set. This gift is 20 years in the making, a wish fulfilled.

I spent a whole evening putting it together. I'll post pictures in a massive picspam entry that I have planned some time in the future.

In other news, things at work were seriously bad for a while there but have improved quite drastically in the last two weeks. I hope things remain good from here on out.

This weekend was spent hanging out with my sister at our friend Georgia's house on Long Island. She manages the jewelry store I worked at last year so she's been super busy the last two months, and this is the first chance we've had to catch up. The weekend was spent doing some much needed shopping and gossiping and just hanging out. I got a cell phone finally after something like 3-4 years without having one. It's a T-Mobile Dash and it's AMAZING! I can be online all the time now. =0D

We also made some tentative plans for my upcoming 25th birthday in May. We've decided to celebrate by going to Atlantic City for a long weekend, just the girls. We're even trying to get Paula to come up from Texas. It's been a long time since she was here to celebrate my birthday. I hope everything works out.

In other news, I lost 5 lbs during my first week of exercise! *dances* I'll only be updating my progress on a monthly basis, just to keep from driving myself nuts with this, but I'm very proud of myself and I hope I can keep this up for the long haul.

Anyway, it's time for me to get to bed. Trin, I dunno if you'll see this or not but I hope you have a good trip!
