splits_thesky: (misc: look to the future now)

Merry Christmas, kidlets!! I'm so glad, now, and, really, all year, to know you guys and to be able to have awesome conversations with you all about awesome stuff, even if it all is only over the internets (though I did meet a whole bunch of you IRL this year!! Which was also awesome, obvz, and def a pattern I want to keep up).

Also, thank you so much to everyone who sent me a holiday card (so, uh, [livejournal.com profile] thefreshchuff, [livejournal.com profile] giventofly37, [livejournal.com profile] justspaz, and [livejournal.com profile] bohemu)!! They are all lovely, and rn being proudly displayed with all our other Christmas decorations (and then they'll go up to my room, and be displayed there!).

My biggest gift this year was probz tickets to Coldplay's summer tour next year, from my mom (which I was totally going to get her, because she loves them, but they were too expensive for me), but I also got a couple books (Flora's Dare, by Ysabeu S. Wilce, The Brief History of the Dead, by Kevin Brockmeier, and the first trade of Fables, which I am exciiiiiiited about, because I def need to pick up my comics reading again), Maroon 5's sophomore album (I still haven't decided whether I want their most recent one or not), and one of those reusable coffee mugs that looks like a paper Starbucks one or something, you know the ones?? ...also, I got, like, lotion and body wash and socks, but that's not as exciting. Oh, and a pair of boots, but I don't love them, though I do need a pair of tall brown boots, so I think I'm gonna go exchange them, or something. Oh, and Whale Rider! Which I've always sort of meant to see, because as far as I know, it's about: a, a girl being AWESOME, and b, WHALES, whiiiiich are both two of my favorite things. So.

Anyway, I hope you all are having a wonderful day, whether you celebrate or not!! <333333

HELLO, MY CHILDREN!! Yes, I've been gone for a while, excuses excuses, blah blah blah. But the thing I realized today, while typing up a suuuuuuper-extended comment to [livejournal.com profile] boheme06, was:

Aaaaand I'd like to -- well, at least try to come back?? It makes me feel shitty, not keeping in touch with you amazing kids as much.

The thing is, though, I never feel like I have anything interesting to say. Like, all I'm doing is going into work at my mom's office a couple days a week (my internship finished), playing with my cat (my old kitty, Garfield, died a little while back -- we miss him something awful, but I got a cute - but kind of crazy - black shorthair from the shelter a couple weeks ago. His name is Comet, and he likes toy mice, belly rubs [SERIOUSLY], and running around the house like a crazy), and watching random children's television. BUT GUESS WHAT, I guess you're all just going to have to hear about that, now, WON'T YOU. I mean, sometimes I cook dinner, so that's always fun to talk about, and I did just start watching Being Human last night (while I'm nooooot totally sure I love it, yet, I DO love Russell Tovey), soooo there is hope for my fannishness yet...??

The other thing is, every time I check my flist, it's full of people being like, "So, I know I'm not around much", or, y'know, just not posting. So -- who's still here?? Just to get a sense of it, I mean, GOD KNOWS I'm in NO position to bitch people out for stepping back from LJ for a while.

Also, um, I re-did my layout ([livejournal.com profile] splits_thesky!)? And my profile, to match (though I have since actually SEEN Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and...idk, I have some issues with it. I still LOVE Narnia, though!!). And I cleaned up my flist a little, because one of the other reasons I was away from LJ so long was that I kept getting SO BEHIND on my flist, because it was bogged down with all these comms. So mostly I just left/stopped watching a bunch of communities, though I did also defriend a couple of people I just hadn't talked to in FOREVER. If you're one of those people, and you really ARE around, though, PLEASE let me know, because it's not at ALL that I don't want to be friends anymore, I just -- wanted to clean up a bit (seriously, this is the first cut of ANY kind I've ever done, because I never wanted to lose ANYONE).

...I guess that's it (OH ALSO IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS, YAAAAAAAAY -- though, my mom has basically told me she hasn't bought me anything this year, because she wasn't feeling anything on my [FOUR PAGE] Amazon wishlist. Buuuut I also want a bike, since she also just donated my old one, so GUESS WHAT I AM GOING TO CLAIM AS A GIFT)?? idk, guys, let's see how long THIS comeback lasts.
splits_thesky: (oc: here's to many more)

Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday, and for those of you who don't celebrate, a wonderful day nonetheless!!

Since the rest of the family isn't getting here until tomorrow morning, we only got through half our gifts and such today, which means I don't have exciting reports of my haul to share with you. But I did open a couple of books I really wanted: Middlesex and My Family and Other Animals (which I actually saw, first, last winter break while I was working my way through Everything With Matthew Goode In It, Ever.)

But anyway, warm wishes to you all, and I hope you have a great day, whatever you're up to!!<33333
splits_thesky: (narnia: there in the winter light)

Soooo yes, I haven't been around much lately, school was a pain, blah blah blah, excuses excuses.

Whatever, the point NOW is, *~*WINTER BREAK*~*!!!!!!
That's right, I am DONE with this semester like I have been waaaaaaaiting to be since, uh, the day it started, and now it is time for baking (today I made coconut macaroons, which I'd never had before, but turned out to be SUUUUPER simple, and delicious), watching TV, and, y'know, CHRISTMASTIME. This past weekend we got our tree and decorated it, and now we're sloooowly getting the rest of the house set. We have to get it both Christmas-set, and baby-set, because, that's right, my nephews are coming to visit! They're not actually going to get here until the 26th, but then they (and my brother and sister-in-law, obvz) will be here for a month. Sooo I'm excited!!!

Also, I have a new layout!! It's not the best ever, but I wanted a winter-y one, and I've been thinking of making it Narnia-y for a while now. So...ta-da: [livejournal.com profile] splits_thesky!!

How are YOU all doing, my lovelies?? I've been trying to keep up with the flist, but...I missed a bunch, I know. So what's happening, bbz?? I am HERE FOR YOU, now (....until next semester starts, anyway. But we are Not Thinking About That, right now).<3333
splits_thesky: (Default)

Our camera battery died, so I'ma have to skip the pictures this year, but...everything's basically the same as past years. Except for my gifts, which are TOTALLY EXCITING and consist of, among other things, Band of Brothers, both the Bale-Batmans, Prince Caspian, aaaand the third season of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. \o/

Anyway, hope you guys are all having a wonderful day, whether you celebrate or not!! ♥♥
splits_thesky: (oc: best chrismukkah ever)
To all of you that celebrate it, a very Merry Christmas!!!! ♥♥♥

I promise, these are totally different Christmas-y pictures than last year's... )

So guess who is now officially on winter break?? That's right, ME.
I kind of look like a zombie, because finals stuff leads to a lack of sleep, and I'm just now eating my first meal of the day, BUT now I have a whole MONTH off, and it is GLORIOUSSSSSSSSSSSS.

And then! I came home and checked the mail, and SURPRISE, I had some! Which, let me tell you, is kind of a big deal, I never get mail (well, unless it's my school being like, "PLZ DELIVER UR CASH MONIES"). And it was not only just mail, but flist Christmas cards!! So, THANK YOUUU, [livejournal.com profile] bubbles83 and [livejournal.com profile] britfacexx, your cards are ADORABLE (and now up on my bulletin board, replacing my finals schedule!!), and ilu both bunches and bunches. ♥♥♥♥

And now, in celebration, and because I've been meaning to do this for a while now, have some holiday muzaks!! )

...And now, if you will excuse me, I am off to dance around my room, and then sleep for a million years. YAY BREAK!!!!
splits_thesky: (sbp: hooray)
Merry Christmas, everyone!! Warmest wishes to you all, from my little corner of the world to yours. ♥♥

And, since I commandeered my mom's office digital camera this morning, pictures! Of Christmas-y things, y'know. )

My mom is trying to make us all do something now, "as a family". I keep trying to convince everyone to watch one of my movies with me (or Gattaca, which I got for my brother), but they don't seem to be going for it. :(
splits_thesky: (hp: best grint picture ever)
okay, a, I am sorry I suck at life and have not been around all week. and Dez, I AM SORRY I HAVE NOT BEEN ONLINE!!!!!! I will shape up, I promise. but! I have been checking my flist, so I've at least been reading all your posts, even though I wasn't commenting.

b, you all need to read this because it features wee!chesters and adorable sammy, and so is totally my new favorite fic. plus [livejournal.com profile] paw_tracks is an amazing writer. SHUT UP, YOU ARE.

c, I AM SO READY FOR CHRISTMAS. I've bought and wrapped all my gifts (would have been done sooner, but I wanted to get the first season of House for my mom, and then couldn't find it ANYWHERE), and all the decorations are up. now, we just have to make food for our christmas eve party we always have. well, everything except the dessert, we did that today. I got to mix cookie dough with my hands, it was the highlight of my day.
PLUS I am 95% sure I'm getting DPS, and I can't wait. we almost bought it for one of my friends today, but then didn't. broke my heart when we had to leave it in the store, though, I'll tell you that.

d, I think my wisdom teeth are coming in, and I hate it. it only hurts on one side of my mouth right now, but it hurts like a bitch. I can't chew things properly anymore, even when I use the other side of my mouth, it still hurts. :(((((((((((((

e! uhhhhhh. I forget what e was. OH NO WAIT. okay so I've been watching queer as folk clips on youtube, and I KNOW brian/justin is the otp or whatever, but IIIIIIIII kind of like brian and michael together, PLZDONTHURTME. I mentioned this to my friend (who doesn't even ship brian/justin that much, okay) and she was all, "WHAT???? NO WAY. NO." but they are adorable!! plus I love hal sparks a lot.

f, there is no f. I am too tired. gooooooooodnight my darlings, and have a happy christmas eve eve!!

ETA: I don't even know what letter this is anymore, but omg, this is definitely the second best House/Wilson fanvid EVER. srsly, watch it, it's amazing. I've watched wilson's "I'M NOT GETTING DEFENSIVE!!!!!!" move a bazillion times, and it never fails to crack me up. :D
splits_thesky: (misc: look a flower)
...but who am I to resist a meme (and why do I feel like I've made this same statement before?)??

From [livejournal.com profile] indilime:

Your Name: Starts with a D

Rules: Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following...They MUST be real places, names, things...NOTHING made up! If you can't think of anything, skip it. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

Read more... )

Okay, now I really have to go to sleep, because tomorrow, we're putting up all our Christmas decorations!! sduifhsduifhsd WE'RE SO BEHIND, I know.
splits_thesky: (spn: oh mah sammy)
Is LJ being a buttface for anyone else?? I don't mean with comments, I'm getting all of mine (I think, anyway), but it keeps giving me these stupid error messages.

SO. I was just going to link you here, where [livejournal.com profile] mcee had posted a bunch of youtube clips of Jared's time on Gilmore Girls, because he is the adorablest ever, and Dean/Rory is totally my OTP. Well, my Gilmore Girls OTP, anyway.
BUT THEN!! This post happened, and omggggggggg you all need to get your butts over there, and download, because baby!Jared?? Is making my LIFE. Seriously, like, I was all mopey because I have to last out two more weeks here before I can go home, but then baby!Jared happened, and YOU GUYS, I AM SO FULL OF GLEE. He has GOT to be the most adorable thing ever, I swear, what with his enormous smile, and - well - just his ENORMOUSNESS in general. HE IS SO LARGE, YET A TOTAL PUPPYDOG. I DO NOT UNDERSTAAAAAAAND!! Buuuuuut I love it!! FOREVER AND EVER.

Uhhh, also, does anyone have the 98 Degrees version of "Little Drummer Boy"?? I have it on my computer at home, but for some reason didn't transfer it to my laptop (which is named Jensen, just btw. I don't think I ever told you guys that.), and now I can't find it anywhere. I've been scouring the internet (including [livejournal.com profile] 1great_escape's Holiday Music Post), but TO NO AVAIL. And I really want to listen to it now, too.


ETA v.2: Ooooooooookay, so, not getting my comment notification emails anymore. >:|
splits_thesky: (but not like that)
[mood| bouncy]
[music| I love the 70's: VOLUME TWOOOOOOOOO]

I just remembered, last night I had a dream in which I was going to Italy. I didn't actually go, though - my whole dream was just me packing and being all, "I want to go, but I'll miss my kitty!!"

In other news (which I think I say almost every post), Sean Astin and Billy Boyd are in the same state as me RIGHT NOW. aouifhsdiufhdsfkhsdfuds but I hope all you peeplez at ELF are having fun (which I think you are, judging by all the posts that have been popping up on my flist)!

I am hoooooooooooooooooooooooooome aloooooooooooooooooooooooone. If I can figure out how to upload pictures off my brother's digital camera, I will commandeer it and take pictures of things for you. It'll help my boredom, at least.

I can't wait for Christmas - it's my favorite time of the year. If it weren't for the fact that my birthday, Halloween, and Thanksgiving are in between now and then, I think I would go crazy.

That is all. Happy Saturday evening, flist!! I smish you forever. :)
splits_thesky: (liv tyler)
Merry Christmas, to all of you that celebrate it, and Happiest Other Assorted Holidays to all the rest of you.

wow, I'm so bad at being politically correct.
