I have not done a substantive journalpost in ages. I dunno, it might be because I think my life is kinda... silly-like uninteresting and nobody would particularly care.

But I'll do a handful of just... random musings.

I was a bit sneezy today. But now all of a sudden, I'm HELLA CONGESTED. That is so amazingly UNCOOL.

My birthday? Was fabulous. Andrew (my boyfriend. Who, I know, I also haven't blogged about, really, which... I really need to do that, since we've been dating since, like... April? ... Okay, yeah, that's sad. BUT LATER.) got me flowerrrrrs. And like the most awesomest card ever.

... Although I think if this snuffleness is a cold, I got it from him, so... there's a TRADE-OFF, here.

I have signed up for MTYG and Yuletide. And will be attempting NaNo again. I'm insane. :b

I have become somewhat addicted to Batman/Superman slash. ... Yeah.

WTF Cubs.

But I'm nominally rooting for the Phillies, insofar as I ever follow baseball after we're eliminated.

Um.... Adopt one today! <--- Click my dragon egg? Please? :D :D :D

I have no idea how it's almost November already. I'm not entirely sure where June went yet.

fgasdkasdf I get back to work from my laze-about-at-home vacation on Friday. ... And Monday night is the start of holiday changeouts. Glaaaaaaaaah.

I have the urge to write fic of some kind. I just have no idea what. This is most annoying.

Doesn't it just figure that this past Sunday, what will probably be my only Sunday off during football season, was the Bears' bye week?

Why do I seem more broke lately than usual?

I can't help the feeling that I'm seriously missing some topic I wanted to talk about, but I can't for the life of me imagine what it might be.

... I might do another randomness post of some kind later. If you have anything you wanna see in it, feel free to request it in a comment. :D Maybe it'll even be whatever it was I forgot about! :D

One (among many) good thing about the Cubs clinching the division silly-early this year...

My division champs t-shirt shipped today.

Last two times it happened, I didn't get the shirt until after the first round of the playoffs was over.

Which... kinda sucked last year. :b

Cub fans are uniquely placed to understand that you can't always get what you want. .... But you'd think you could get it OCCASIONALLY. :/

Have reserved flight to Chicago in July.

With enough leeway for me to catch a Cubs game on Sunday.



Okay, now I have to put in for the time off when I go to work tomorrow. ;)

So I'm set. And if the dates turn out to be wrong, on nonrefundable tickets, Southwest lets you apply a canceled ticket to a new one. Which, since it'll be the same price, won't be a problem.

This is really what one gets when playing too much Knights of the Old Republic. (Well, II, in my case, but... applies either way!)

Heheh. I <3 HK-47.

Umm... Ignore me.

Really. Move on. Nothing to see here.

Oh! Wait! You can stay. For, like, two seconds. Because I gotta squee. As in I officially have sitting on my desk tickets to both of the Cubs spring training games in Vegas. *does a little dance*

Okay. Now you can really go.
dizmo: (joey - nice hat!)
Seriously. What on earth does it take to get Ron Santo, one of the premier third basemen of his era, into the freaking Hall of Fame?

It's just... mindboggling.

Fragging Veterans Committee.

Therefore, I am going to do the obligatory 'I am thankful for....' post.  Although, since I think it goes without saying that I'm thankful for the big stuff... My family (oh, and a happy 90th birthday shoutout to my grandma!  Older than all my other grandparents, but only living one left..), my friends (yes, this includes all of you), and, y'know... the Big Stuff, I'm gonna make a list of the little things that I'm thankful for that I really don't think of all that much.  So here we go.

I'm Thankful For... )

There we go.  25 things I'm thankful for.  Woo-ha!

ErinDizmo (7:56:26 AM): I had a FUCKED UP DREAM of the highest order.
RainbeauxMS (7:56:31 AM): Gooood morni--?
ErinDizmo (7:56:47 AM): I was at Wrigley, kay....
RainbeauxMS (7:56:57 AM): Woot?
ErinDizmo (7:57:01 AM): I was watching a game...
ErinDizmo (7:57:15 AM): Sitting in front of the brick wall on a folding chair immediately behind home plate.....
ErinDizmo (7:57:27 AM): The players were on a bench to my immediate left....
RainbeauxMS (7:57:36 AM): Uh.
ErinDizmo (7:57:42 AM): It gets weirder.
ErinDizmo (7:57:44 AM): And I'm watching the game.... And Mark Remlinger's pitching...
ErinDizmo (7:57:51 AM): And all of a sudden, he starts doing FREAKY shit.
ErinDizmo (7:57:56 AM): Like... He's in a UPS uniform.....
ErinDizmo (7:58:04 AM): And he's floating.
RainbeauxMS (7:58:11 AM): o.O;
ErinDizmo (7:58:28 AM): And he starts pitching some weirdass stuff that moves in ways physics never intends.
ErinDizmo (7:58:46 AM): Among the notables in the CROWD were Cameron Diaz......
ErinDizmo (7:59:03 AM): The devil or SOMEONE, but he had a sweatshirt with math equations printed on it...
ErinDizmo (7:59:12 AM): And an elephant made of silver.
ErinDizmo (7:59:14 AM): Oh, and you.
RainbeauxMS (7:59:22 AM): Wait wait, why are we dragging me into this?
ErinDizmo (7:59:27 AM): You were just there.
ErinDizmo (7:59:37 AM): Well SOMETHING happened with you just before I woke up, but..
ErinDizmo (8:00:12 AM): So yes. That was my dream.

Cubs playoff series victories apparently do WEIRD THINGS to my head.
