honeyspider: (|| DD: Just say we were lovers)
Last night we had a combined birthday party for Lara and Alison, and I made them a cake. BEHOLD!

cake! )

To be fair, Woot made the actual cake itself since I was just doing to make a flat one but he decided 3D was the way to go. I really didn't think it was going to survive - you can't tell but it's on an impressive lean. It was delcious though and you can tell it's meant to be a Tardis so that's all that matters really. (The both of them are big Who fans, obviously. I only like old Who but I liked making the cake!)

Tomorrow (except it's today now because it's gone 5am) I have an appointment with a dental specialist to talk about a wisdom tooth. I need to get it removed but it turns out that the root is wrapped around the nerve or something so the dentist point blank said he wouldn't take it out. Which... fun. The appointment tomorrow is $200 and that's just for an x-ray and the guy telling me what I can do about it. I dread to think how much the actual removal is going to cost. It literally makes me whole body tense up just thinking about it. (The tooth I got pulled the other week only cost me $140 and I honestly almost cried with relief in the dentist chair.)

Money stress! Everyone loves money stress! I am currently earning $30 under what my rent is which is not at all stressful and making me constantly worried - who would worry about such a thing as that! The current reason for my lack of funds is actually a bit ridiculous - it's because I got a job. I was working a temporary typing position and since I'm on a government benefit I had to declare that money. Which would be all fine and dandy but the job paid fortnightly and the benefit pays weekly, and if you don't declare your earnings every week they have to fine you for it. But if I declared it by the week then I would have a week in between where I had no money whatsoever. Fun, right?

But I'm not working that job anymore and hopefully the next one I find will be weekly! (Not that jobs are exactly easy to find right now. Christchurch being earthquake city it's kind of difficult to find jobs unless you're in the construction business. That one is booming!)

It's my birthday in two weeks-ish and Lara made me put together a list of things I wanted that she could pick from. The list turned out to be all books and comic-related things. I'm rather predictable. (If I was her I'd just pick whichever thing was cheapest. I'm not really fussed about getting presents but she enjoys giving them.)

Speaking of comic books, I went to the Armageddon Expo a few weeks back, which is the geeky sci-fi/fantasy/comics/anime etc etc event we have here each year. It's not exactly ComicCon but we're a wee little place so I suppose that's fair. I even made a costume this year

costumes! )

Am I not the spitting image of Jean Grey? (After she'd eaten all the other X-Men, obviously.)

Further comic book ramblings: CAPTAIN AMERICA 2: WINTER SOLDIER. Holy shit, Winter Soldier SO EXCITE! It was pretty obvious from the first movie that they were going to eventually bring Bucky back and do the whole Winter Soldier in some way, but still I'm excited by the confirmation! All I need is Bucky/Natasha, you guys. IT'S ALL I WANT IN THIS WORLD. Please please please let me have my comic book true loves on screen! I know it's not likely since Avengers was really setting up Black Widow/Hawkeye as the pairing but BLACK WIDOW/WINTER SOLDIER THEY ARE THE MOST BESTEST LOVERS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. (Or, at least, in comics. No comic relationship is better... except for Carol Danvers/Jessica Drew - shh! It's real! Shut up!)

Lara and I are both really excited for Silent Hill 2 as well. In my case I don't know why since I am terrible at horror movies! And having now watched the trailer I have even less doubt of my ability to actually make it through the movie without crying in fear. Terrible at horror movies! Atrocious! And yet... want. We're going to go to the movies to see it: this is a Bad Idea. The last horror movies I saw at the cinema were House on Haunted Hill and Thirteen Ghosts, both of which still sort of haunt my memory to this day. So... yeah... cool.

It's started raining. This means busing to appointment adventures in the rain. Always fun!
Friday night was the KAOS Halloween party and I went as The Grudge. It was badarse and there were compliments on the creepy, but alas I don't have any other photos than that one of me creeping at the door of the LFoD.

On Saturday night we did our now annual horror movie Halloween with candy and delicious and scary ourselves silly. The movie selection this year was Mirrors, The Ward, Hide & Seek, and Skeleton Key. (Our warm-up during the week was Simpson's Treehouse of Horror episodes and Scream 4.)

In the middle of all this stuff we had a girly tea-party. Because.


I am 172 centimeters tall.
This makes me taller than 25.1% of men and 85.7% of women.

|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
spacefem.com/quizzes/tall/



Huh.

I was having this discussion yesterday with Lara about how I always think that I'm average height or just below average, probably because most of my friends are at least a half an inch taller than me and because both of my parents are taller. I still wish I was taller though. I feel more like my 'proper' height in a pair of high heels, which is why I don't really like wearing flats. (The 'living with people who skew the average' is the reason I always think of myself as still being flat-chested when I'm a C. I blame living with three girls who were DDs and above.)

Alison is doing NaNo right now, you guys! SHE'S A FOOL!
Last night was the Friday of the forty-eight and I: drank ridiculously bourbon-spiked icebreaker, lost my voice, flogged a group of men, played runner for dramatic situations, and got kicked really hard in the shins.

Interesting night. Good night though, the parts that we're made of Fuck This All I Hate You. I still have very little in the way of, you know, a voice but other than that I feel perfectly fine. I just had no idea how much I talk and sing under my breath every freaking second of the day, because not doing it is making me feel like a mental case.

Echo went outside to enjoy the gorgeous day of sunshine and got herself stung in the throat by a bee, the loser. She had to go to the vet. Man, my throat has problems too but I didn't get to go to the vet, did I?

Anyway, soon the Saturday night festivities will begin properly and Alison and I shall go join them. Hopefully this voice of mine chooses to stay at least a little and I can pretend that I'm all sexy and husky, instead of being mute. I suck at mute.
All of the second lot of snow has melted now, except for a few places around where it's been piled up into big brown blobs of the stuff and thus having a little trouble with turning back into water. It's working on it though and now the yard is all green again instead of white. (Which was very pretty but very weird.)

Last night was Ness and Laura's housewarming (even though they've lived there now for ages) and it was lots of tequila filled fun, even if a very drunk guy I've never met decided to rest his hand on my inner thigh. Laura saved me though! (Because, again, INCAPABLE of saying 'hi, fuck off' because it might be considered rude. Dear sweet lord, Circe. You really need to get yourself out of this habit.)

Lara has been asleep ALL DAY so I hope that she isn't dead because that would suck.

In news of awesome: I'm going to Nimbin for September :D (Alison and Lara may or may not be coming, since they like the idea but money is ever an issue. I am lucky to have birthday flights.)
So on Saturday we had the first party here at the LFoD in ages and despite all my worrying that it would all go terribly, it was amazing. Definitely among the very best we've hosted and certainly the most full. Never have their been so many people in the flat! Most of my real life friends have dropped their livejournals/never had any but for the few that do still reside here in the less evil place, thank you for coming!

We bought a lot of booze and I made the most epic vodka jelly castle which I sadly have no photos of but trust me, it was well received by all. Helios and Echo even liked all the people, because they are tiny snuggly kitten sluts.

Now we're just trying to work out the date for Ali and my birthday drinkies, which will be either the first weekend or second weekend of August, depending on when things are already on. We shall find out and shall once again play amazing hostesses.

Tonight is W00t's last night in the city and we are getting to have him for it. And there will be rocky road and love and all is well and happy.

Last night was the Heroes and Villains party in celebration of our (KAOS') glorious lady-dictator, and it was all pretty damn brilliant. Lots of fantastic costumes and good company and half a bottle of tequila within my soul. Oooooh yeeeeeah. (I was not costumed. I was lazy. I am always too lame for costumes even though costume parties make me ridiculously happy.)

In the afternoon before that Alison and W00t and I went to Armageddon where I fought my way through the crowds to reach the comic table, because I sure as hell wasn't letting those teenage boys keep control of it. My swag: 2 Ms Marvel,4 Wonder Woman, 3 Uncanny X-Men, 1 Mighty Avengers and 7 She-Hulk. (One of which has this sexy cover.)

Today I have spent feeling a little hungover and watching season 2 Battlestar. Does it get better than this? I think not, people.
Home sweet home!

Yesterday I was waiting around Melbourne airport for about four hours. Might have been less dull were they not renovating the international lounge because there's hardly anything there now and for breakfast I had the WORST $15 hot chocolate and chicken sandwich EVER. warm water with some cocoa sprinkled over does NOT a five dollar hot chocolate make.

But now I am home and I've slept and I have TEA and I'm all dressed up and ready to go out to the masquerade party tonight. I have to get on a Saturday night bus with my face painted up though, which will be fun. (By 'fun' read 'youth of the world and their douchebagness'.)

Waiting for Ali now and then we shall be off into the night!

Miss my mummy ♥
Perversion Party + Tequila + Boys = :D

Perversion Party + Tequila + Ridiculous-Heeled PVC boots = D:

Today my soul is joyous but my feet are weeping. Totally worth it though. I would take photos of my cleavage to show you the signatures from our very own boyband but they mostly smuged off in my sleep. But rest assured, Du Jour still means seatbelts.

KAOS, you are throwing some fantastic parties this year. Keep it up! (Also, come to back LJ. Facebook is lame.)
Here I go, posting photos.

An intro? We don't need no stinkin' intro.

There's always spider photos when I go to Nimbin )
One of my favourite things in the world is bussing on a hangover. Oh baby, there is nothing more exciting. (I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE.) But I have no progressed from my deadly morning times to now just feeling kinda groggy instead. But that's fine because Ali and I have Buffy season three to be watching and junk food to watch it with. TAKE THAT, WORLD. Nothing can make anything bad right now.

Party last night was really good and people were to bright and colourful. For those who are unaware I was wearing FLUORO ORANGE TROUSERS. That's a sight that you will never see again. People were fun and awesome - Dollhouse, I ♥ you and your parties.*

Tonight I sort out travel details for August and then I can email parentals about flights. I am going to rock Sydney and Nimbin ♥

*Me: Hey, they all live in the Dollhouse... but that don't really exist in an innocent childlike state.
Alison: *snort* That would be the very opposite of what they are.

TV, you lied to me again.
At the command of the flatmates I am making this post. (Seriously. Gunpoint. Or, at least, they passed me the computer.)

So...

What: Late flat anniversary drinkies and BBQ!
Where: LFoD as would be fitting for an anniversary of said flat.
When: Saturday, 28th of March, and since it's BBQ socialising you can start showing around about four.

Did I miss anything there?

Now we're going to eat fudge, because it is our birthright. And then, once that is done, I am CLEANING MY ROOM. Believe it. It's happening. I found seven cocks behind my desk. That's impressive.

EDIT: Seven SOCKS. SOCKS.
Accommodation for Wellington is now booked and I am getting pretty damn excited about the fact that in a week I shall be on my way out to see Amanda Palmer playing. GLEE. Two other people from my extended social circle and going to be there as well, and who knows if there might be others? I think there might be a nice amount of post-AFP drinking going on. Which reminds me that I need to have another look at what bars in Wellington are good, as well as finding shops that might sell awesome gothy shoes and corsets. Alison needs a corset and Wellington must provide.

I have an idea for my Perversion Party outfit but I will require an underbust for it. Laura, you said you had one that might possibly fit me? I shall have to come around at some point before Wednesday and try it out. (This will require remembering how the hell to get to your house.)

Our broadband has gone over = :(
First Party last night was awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed myself :D Hope some of the newbies stick around as all of the ones I spoke too seemed pretty cool and I therefore approve. And, as you know, my approval is all important to people ;)

Today my neck is killing me from all the headbanging, but hey that's the feeling of a party well done I think. And right now it's raining and lovely and Alison and I have characters to torture for Darker London. AND I'm going to get a cup of tea so don't even try to tell me today isn't FABULOUS.

First, though, I must reply to emails that have been sitting around in my inbox...

(holy crap, Amanda Palmer in, like, ten sleeps. SO. FRAKKING. EXCITED.)
Currently pinned to my notice board are three tickets for the Amanda Palmer show in Wellington on the 12th March. 'Excited' doesn't even cover it, baby. I can't freaking wait.

Alina, Alison and I have a day in hand as well which means we can go see the giant squid at Te Papa. It's going to be awesome fishy goodness.
To celebrate the birth of the most lovelyerist Ness we will be holding a birthday drinkies for her here. HAVE SOME DETAILS, BITCHES!

What: Drinking and Merriment and probably birthday cake all for [livejournal.com profile] moment_of_sen
When: Friday, 20th Feb - (Show up before 8:30pm and I will cut you)
Where: The LFoD. If you don't actually know where that is yet we probably don't want you. ... Or maybe you just haven't been yet in which case ask, ask for the addy!

Later today I shall post CF photos, promise. But for now I will post YouTube videos I promised. Sadly they're all live recordings so they don't have pretty videos along with them and such. But Jason Webley is awesome anyway.

videos! )
On Saturday night there was a Heroes and Villains party. So I say to myself, Self, who is the most bestest and sexiest villain?

The answer is, of course, The Hitcher. He will, after all, harness the powers of evil to abuse you. In song format.

I'm a cockney... I'm a cockney... )

A few people got who I was. Everyone else was just confused to why I kept speaking to them in a bad cockney accent and threatening to put them in dolphin suits...
I love reading [livejournal.com profile] housematehorror. It makes me realise that despite any problems we have in our household, living in the LFoD is, in actual fact, bliss. Because we don't live with any of those people. Thank the gods on high for that piece of mercy. (Although, maybe the flatmates might disagree and I could see someone on there very soon who is rather vividly like me... Hmmmm. I prepare to live in fear of this day.)

The first night of the 48 was excellent, even though it was raining. Tonight is going to be colder and wetter and windier, and it's been snowing/sleeting all day. Coooold. Drank quite a bit though I remained little more than tipsy, and there was quite a bit of glorious snogging going on. Ah, drunken boys and their amusingness. Who can resist such temptations?

Tonight it has been promised that there will be Boosh music. Oh hells yes. We're getting The Tundra Rap, because it's fitting to the current weather. The weather in which I find it a challenge to feel my fingers properly.
Were I not spending so much time on [livejournal.com profile] stupid_free I would miss such gems as this.

We're not all the same...I believe in both evolution theories. Whites were created by God. Blacks evolved from Apes.

Wow. Just... wow.

And now I'm going to shower and buys alchomahols for the party tonight. (Not at the same time though. Showers while shopping is a difficult task.)

I really hope it stops raining before tonight... EDIT: I spoke too soon! Oh hai thar, severe weather warnings!
New layout, because I damn well felt like it.

I should really be sending emails to people I owe them to... and yet.

Blah. Later tonight maybe.

But in good news: The 48 hour party is this weekend. It's gonna kick arse, because I said so.
LFoD drinkies tonight means I have to clean my room. As one can understand this is a horrible thing for me to face and I have to remove to poets so I can vacuum. (Rats? Strangely not fond of the very loud sucking machine. Who would have thought it?) Uuuuugh, task too daunting. Abort. Abort.

Slave auction and party last night was pretty damn awesome even if I was - shock horror - sober. (See, mum? Totally not a drunk ;P) Had heaps of fun actually and did my regular trick of stealing leather jackets from the nearest male. It remains one of my very favourite games.

I want to end this on something really witty, but alas I have nothing.

EDIT: Hats make me look like a twat.

Rock on, my bitches.
