I am the laziest, but Chapter Nine is finally up!

Unrelated: I recently went to Halifax for a week to visit my ~folks (highlight: "Gangnam Style" playing in the gay bar), and while I was there I got a tattoo.

Every now and again I get the strongest urge to update my LJ. This usually happens when I am at work and have a line of twenty-seven customers, and so all I can do is sigh and hope that I remember it later. Usually by the time I get home I'll have forgotten whatever brilliant thing I was going to say about school or puppies or string cheese or whatever I was thinking about.

You are not really missing much, to be totally honest.

Today I got that urge and realized hey, I am sitting at my laptop! With a Notepad window open, even! And so I started to type a beautiful entry about what I am doing, where I feel my life is going, and what I am looking forward to in the months to come. It was pretty great.

Then I dropped my computer on the floor and had to restart it without getting the chance to save what I'd written. So it goes.*

Here is the shortened version. )

This morning, while rummaging through a bunch of old CDs in search of a song whose title I'd forgotten, I found a disc full of pictures. Specifically, pictures of a trip to Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec City that my class took in ninth grade.

You can guess where this is going, right? )

This was taken this morning. My hair was cut and dyed the other day (it is blue, not black, although it's kind of hard to tell here). I am still not sure if I like it or not.

(P.S.: I have new icons! They are Skins themed and keyworded with song lyrics, because I am the gayest.)

This is a detail from a larger portrait of all the cousins on my mother's side of the family, done while we were visiting them in England for Christmas. I am four years old, plus a couple of months, and have apparently already decided to make my reputation as "the dopey-looking one" in any given group of people. The one in the matching dress next to me is [livejournal.com profile] withoutawhy. (We aren't twins, but our mother dressed us the same until we got old enough to protest.) What I remember most about that visit: double decker buses, the smell of vodka and cigarettes, watching an old man put a ship in a bottle, splitting open my chin on my nana's television set, the Beatles museum.

This is a photo of my dog, Magoo, taken by [livejournal.com profile] withoutawhy on the day we had to have him put down. He was a Boxer-American Staffordshire mix; we got him from a shelter when I was about ten. I walked up to the last cage on the left, saw him, and knew he was my dog. He was afraid of cats, vacuum cleaners, other dogs, most adult men (he'd been abused by his last owners, we're pretty sure), and... well, pretty much everything. He slept on my bed most nights until his hips got too bad for him to climb up there. He didn't know his own strength- he once accidentally knocked me down while I was walking him and dragged me several yards up the road before he noticed anything was wrong. (He was very sorry about it afterwards.) He smelled terrible. I loved him to pieces.

He died on March 22nd, 2006, two days before I was accepted to university. I was the only one of us who stayed when they injected him. He was shaking the whole time, and then he just... stopped. And didn't start again.

If any of you have a dog go give that dog a big fucking hug because I miss mine. A lot.

So I got a tattoo today! )

Little Brother and I went to the comic book shop afterwards. I bought a beautifully obnoxious Umbrella Academy coffee mug (the bottom says "thank you for the coffee"! I couldn't NOT buy it) and a set of Serenity action figures. Jayne is currently sitting on top of a small stack of Discworld books, menacing Shakespeare. Then we both decided to buy parasols, because we are pritty pritty ladies. Apparently. (Comic Shop Guy called Little Brother "she," probably because of his flowing locks. He was a little disheartened by it, but then I told him that androgyny is a sign of a well-balanced psyche and if other people don't get that that's their problem, not his, and I think it cheered him up a little.) I also had a tremendously edifying conversation with a shop clerk about the wisdom of majoring in Philosophy. Luckily I'm not.

That shop sells Nietzsche wristwatches. I don't know how to feel about that.

All in all, today was an A+ day. Now I'm going to go make tea in my obnoxious coffee mug and listen to the new Spinnerette album. Has anyone else heard it? It's pretty much the most fuckable record I've heard so far this year.
