Welcome

I'm Laura. I am female, 31, a gamer, a bookworm, a knitter, a spinner, a tatter, pierced, tattooed, musical, vehemently geeky and occasionally ineptly artistic.

Hi!

Wow, I'm dizzy.

Not sure if this is from the fact that I lost the little padding thing from one of my iPod earbuds so they're kind of unbalanced right now, or from the fact that I either have allergies or a cold right now, but I really do feel like my desk, monitor, chair and all are tilting about 33degrees downward right now...

Seriously, the room is spinning. This can't be good.

My weekend in St Louis last week was amazing. I met Dan's parents for the first time, who are incredibly nice people and even (!) apparently like me. This is definitely a good thing :) Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day - almost 80 degrees, but with a really nice breeze and thankfully I'd thought to bring my light wraparound skirt and sandals. That being the case, the two of us wandered down to the banks of the river and around by the Arch - I'd never been before, so check that off the ol' life list. There's a little museum under it, too, filled with a lot of pioneer and Lewis and Clark artifacts, and to me at least that is always awesome.

In the category of other 'first times', I have now had both frozen custard and gooey butter cake, and I'm happy to report that both are absolutely fantastic (you have to taste the latter to believe it, I know)!

Work is surviving... I'm more or less up to speed now and at a point where I'm getting things accomplished, which is good. The busier I am, the better it is. Less time to think, that way.


Got word on Wednesday that Tim took his job offer from North Carolina, which (from my personal point of view) is both fantastic and sucks. Fantastic for him, because it sounds like it's a really good job, and it's out of this depressed area. Sucks for me, because that pretty much eliminates the last really good friend that I have in this area. And staying around purely because of a job that I'm still not at all fond of, especially when I have friends and someone whom I love elsewhere... Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. So although it's not like I have -plans- to move yet, I consider this more or less the last nail in the coffin of my -intent- to move.

I'm trying not to think about everything that'll be changing when I finally do... I know that it has to happen eventually, if for no other reason than that I don't want to be in this area for the rest of my life and therefore I will, at some point move. Losing relatively quick access to home, Dad, Lake George, Amy, the city... even if I don't take advantage of all of those things all the time, it's nice to know they're there, you know?

(The Cure's To Wish Impossible Things just came up on my iPod, and the combination of that and my gloomy thoughts are making me tear up at work. Fantastic.)

And all of those things still will be there for me, there's just a plane trip in the middle now. I need to remember that.

Party tonight for Tim @ Frosty's... a wake, technically, I guess... the guest of honor's probably showing up in a suit, not that that would be all that different from any other random time that he feels like dressing up ;), they procured the coffin from the Finegan's Wake that was held on St Pat's day down at Flashbacks, we're hanging black draping over the house, etc... and apparently a notice was sent out to the STYP mailing list, which is kind of the Bingoland equivalent of being slashdotted. My only fear is the knowledge that I'm already an emotional wreck, and that I do goodbyes badly at the best of times.



Made myself a big pasta salad last night... red onions and bell peppers roasted in some balsamic and oil, cherry tomatoes, garlic, oil and vinegar (with basil, oregano, savory, s&p). Something was still missing though, definitely. It wasn't thick enough somehow...I still can't really figure out what it is. And I've got kind of a plan for something next week which requires me to figure it out pdq. (Emeril's Herb Vinaigrette is kind of what I'm basing my desires for consistency off of, and it uses high fructose corn syrup as, presumably, an emusifier. I am -not- doing that...for pity's sake, I have standards.) Here's a thought - wonder whether I can roast the garlic and then blend that up in the dressing to help thicken it...oooh. Any thoughts? :)


Going to go pick up my crap that I just sent to the printer, and see whether the hallways are spinning around me too.

ETA: the_reader? I am beyond hooked on that Corporeal Halo remix. Just thought I'd let you know!
