Here I go Again
Wow, it has been awhile since I've been on here. So what the fuck. Here I go again. Today is my day off and I will be doing my usual shopping to my usual haunts. Pick up my new comics, pay my Visa Bill, pay for my Autograph Pic of Casper Van Dien on Ebay (yummy), go to the Library, maybe look around downtown at a few stores and then meet Toddy for Dinner. The new Blade TV show is on tonight on Spike so that is exciting. Although, why is he bald? Hmmm.

Work is good. Busy. My staff still aren't quite up to snuff yet, but I'm trying to deal with it without blowing up. The amount of mistakes I have to fix is really annoying and costly. Still, i have to keep telling myself it isn't MY store and I can only do so much. Still, i really am amazed at how good I am at this job. I basically didn't know anything about framing when I started but now I can do things with creativity and skill I ususally reserve for the bedroom. haha. :P Honestly though. I really like it even though it is still technically retail. Of course, if you work in retail it's better to be the boss than the slave... I mean the worker. Yes, worker. Of course, I have so many fricken' frames around the apartment it's nuts.

Last friday Cara-Mae came to visit and we gorged ourselves on TV DVD. Fun Fun. Although, we all agreed that the Golden Griddle is no longer Golden nor
Griddled. The portions are small and poorly cooked. Fuck you GG! We should have gone back to Swiss Chalet and flirted with the hot waiter. (Although I am against the poor slaughter of those innocent animals. Eat the veggie stirfry!) Cara-mae filled me in on her latest sexual escapades and I wrote them all down for my new tell all book entitled, "Vixen, Story of a Woman in Heat". Please, no advanced copies. Later that night, Todd and I acted out chapter 6: The PT Cruiser is meant for more than cruising. *wink* *wink*

Hmmm. That's it. For now. Bye. Bye. No Bi though.

Confessions on a Livejournal Page.
It's the first day of winter. Hmm.. i guess that means it's going to be cold today. I still need to go out and get a few more gifts today and I will prolly have to deal with people in their own xmas frenzy. It's my day off and I still have to deal with crazy people obssessed with their own self-importance. However, I am going to venture forth with a holly jolly attitude and see what happens.

I'm having one of those contemplative moments that ppl get in movies where pieces of their lives flash before the screen and they think deep thoughts which inevitally change the course of their lives. I don't think i have the energy to change the world so i will act locally and think globally today. Maybe i will give a homeless person some money or not make fun of a person wearing berkenstocks with socks in the snow. Either way it can only add to my karma points.

Cara, I dreamed last night that we were watching wonderfalls on tv.

Today I will be myself something to put a smile on my face. This is nothing new. I do this all the time, but today I am feeling kinda sick so this might lighten my mood moreso than purchasing usually does. Maybe something small like a tin cup of my very own, or a cookie sprinkled with sugar in the shape of an angel, or even a pair of red mittens like Mr. Edwards had when he was just a sprig in Tennesse. But not a black cast iron stove because there isn't much call for them anymore. Everyone has one!

Thanks for listening. Even though talk is cheap.

It's 11:43 on a monday and I am on the computor while todd plays playstation. Tonight we watched an extremely funny dvd of Kathy Griffin's stand-up. Well worth the 12 bucks I paid for it at HMV.
Frankly, I don't have much to say. Who cares, really? It's all nonsensical drivel on here most of the time anyway. But still, i'll play the game.

I purchased a lot of stuff this past week from the comic store, HEROES, in London. Let's see--Classic Silver Age Wonder Woman/Wondergirl set, Batgirl/Joker set, and Superboy/Supergirl set from DC Direct. I'll probably go back on wednesday for the Batwoman/Batgirl one. Plus, I bought another Wonder Woman statue and a spider woman bust for Todd. I hate it when they have mark downs--I think they wait till I come in and then start marking them down. The owner, Bram, was trying to sell me this huge fucking Green Lantern "Lantern" with power ring. When you put the ring on and place it near the Lantern is glows. Sorry, but that's just too much, even for my geekness. (Alright, who am I kidding?! it was the $200 price tag that made me say no... todd woulda killed me.)

So, I'm collecting the new Supergirl series for the Infinate Crisis tie-ins but I'm still not sure if I'll add it to my monthly list. There are soooo many tie-ins but i must have them all. Hell, I even bought an issue of that horrible new Firestorm series because Donna Troy was on the cover. The last two Green Lantern issues with The Shark made me feel ill-- i HATE sharks. The idea of being eaten alive is the worst thing i can imagine. I feel sick now just thinking about it.

I couldn't get my hands on any fucking 3-d glasses for the Medium episode tonight. So, in protest, I chose not to watch. If they try to sell a gimmick to me at least make it accessible. I went through a ton of Globe and Mail and TV Guides and not a single pair of glasses did I find. Fuck you Kelsey Grammer Productions. Tomorrow night is Todd and Ryan's Pizza and TV night bonding session. Bones/Supernatural/Gilmore Girls. Then sex. Well, maybe not sex, but at least pizza. Really, what's the different as long as it's extra cheesy and thick. The pizza, I mean, the pizza. Yes, the pizza.

todd's game sounds retarded: a bunch of midgets in berets talking about holy fish and apples. I'm going back to Ebay.

A Day Off
Today is my first day off in nine days. I didn't get up until 12:40. I had dreams about work that were stressful. THEN... i started dreaming about the OC show's characters.. BUT... in a mythological setting. It took place in China and the main girl in the show (I think her name is Mischa Barton) was a centaur and her father was Hercules. There was magic, mahem, the end of days and a lot of gasoline. I woke up in a "Ok, I need help" mood.
Right now I am fully showered, shaved and teeth whitened. I need to go to the library and return a movie. I will be getting lunch (maybe.. if there is anything worth eating)and then i skip along to the comic book stores. I will then come home and clean.
I still miss greg and I was thinking about the fact that MAtt is really close and we haven't seen each other yet. SO... I think matt (if you are reading this) you and I need to connect.
i go now.

Today was Greg's Funeral. It was the first funeral i had ever been to. It was nice to see so many people who knew him there to speak about how terrific he was. One of his oldest friends made a comment about one of Greg's Favourite sayings, "THE ONLY STAR IN A HELEN LAWSON MOVIE IS HELEN LAWSON!" If anyone knows where this comes from kudos for you! I laughed because it was so him. Greg was one of those ppl who always made you laugh. It's so hard to think about the fact that I will never see him again. I will never here his voice on my phone saying, "Hey man, it's Greg-Guy!" again. We will never go antiquing at the Aberfoyle Flee Market again. I hope when I die he is one of the people who comes to get me and take me to wherever we go when we die and make a comment like "Death's not so bad... even that bitch Helen Lawson ended up here!"

Dancing with myself... and playing with myself.
So, what's been going on lately. I had a funtastik time at the Billy Idol concert. That man can still rock and look good in a pair of tight pants. Steve Stevens is the shit when it comes to guitars. Todd had fun but it was a little long for him. *snicker* After the concert when went downtown for pizza and were called names by str8 boys out of their car window. Ahhh... only in London. Todd and I are in agreement that this city blows. Once his contract with IBM is over we are moving. Where... I cannot say, but I will tell you it will not be Guelph. In all the cities wee have lived in never have we felt so "othered" as this overly white and religious city.
Anyway, my job is going really well. I'm now the Manager of my Frame Shop and have moved over to the new BIG Michaels store. We are in the best financial shape we've ever been in and my fingers are crossed and every piece of wood is being knocked on. Everyone at work thinks i'm 26... come on ppl... i know i look young but get cereal. It's nice to finally be the one in charge.. after having to put up with the horrible manager at the last store. I went to help out a few weeks ago at that store and she was still acting like i worked for her... i sweetly told her that i don't take order from her anymore. ahhhh.
Not much else is going on right now. For the last year it's been hectic with work and finding work and getting financially back on track that we haven't had time to travel or visit anyone much. But things are on the up.
Still no children yet and we've really been trying. HAHAHAHAHA. right. The kitty is still cute but stupid and we never call him by his name. He's just kitty or baby or sweetie.. etc.. but never Oscar. hmm.. he is a very picky eater and hates everything except chicken and turkey. I'm still a veggie (todd still vetos the vegan idea) and i've gotten him to stop eating red meat.
does anyone actually give a shit? am I typing this to asauge my own feelings of isolation and need for friendship in this city without pity? Or am i actually loved and missed. feelings... nothing more than feelings... send in the clowns... ppl.... ppl who need ppl... are the luckiest ppl in the world.
excuse me while i spin around and transform into Wonder Woman...
there.. i feel like a new person. one of the options is text: Auto... can i add fellatio to that? I can't do it but hey.. someone out there might be able to.

I'm alive.. not like that movie Alive where everyone is eating everyone else, but more or less like the state a bug is in before it is going to be roasted under the glass held by an annoying little ten year old boy that I hope I never have.

What I Am...
You Are Beauty
You are Beauty.

You are beautiful, whether it be on the inside, the
outside, or both. People are drawn to you as
strongly as you are drawn to the beauty in the
world around you.

Take My Breath Away
I've only seen it a few times but i love that Newlyweds show with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. He's kinda mean to her. I mean, sure, she is a little spoiled and useless around the house but he's always yelling at her. If you didn't know what you were getting into than you shouldin't have married her. I think it was her tits he was looking at when he said I do. I need to get difital. I called LOOK today.. I just need the 80 dollar charge for the box.

I miss Toronto.

I'm feeling full of ennui.. did i spell that right? I have a headahce and I sleep too much. I have all these great desires and ideas but i can't seem to get motivated. Maybe i need to take yoga or herbal pills or something.

I am dancing on a platform twirling and twirling and twirling.

Kid Flash and Dc Comics Presents
There is a relatively new comic store in London which it totally devoted to Silver Age comics. It does have some golden age and some modern (bronze) age ones too, but the Silver Age stock is absolutely amazing. I went today and bought some Avengers, a Dc Comics Presents with Superman and Robin I've been wanting, Zatanna's joining appearance in Justice League of America and an old Flash comic that had a Kid Flash appearance I DIDN'T HAVE!!! The owner can't be bothered to do tax on odd amounts so he ROUNDS DOWN!!! $14.50 becomes $10 and so on!! Doesn't he realize this means I have the opportuanity to spend more now?! Todd was bored after about 5 minutes but he did help me look through the 50 cent bin. I bought a West Coast Avengers comic and the owner looks at it and says, "I think this is the first West Coast Avengers comic I've ever sold!". Hmmph. There was a Green LAntern 40 there for $90 that I want really bad, but I want it in min Very Good conciditon (that one was good). The cover is so gorgeous with Hal Jordan and Alan Scott together for the first time. Oh, I'm getting the vapours just thinking about it. Todd said something about not telling Nancy about this store as she'd want to buy everything. heh

Teenage Hearthrob
I was called into the manager's office last week. Unlike the old days of highschool where I expected to get in trouble for smart-mouthing some bitch of a teacher who tried to make me stand in the corner or some other nonsense, I was offered a job promotion and a raise. I said sure. I've gone farther and make more than i did after 3 1/2 years at The Rose (may it rest in pieces). So that was a nice way to start the week.

My horoscope told me that this week coming up I will be in charge of my spending and will allow myself to splurge on materalistic goods (which Taureans liek to do anyway). Hmm.. tomorrow is my day off and the comic stores are just a few blocks away... hmm...

I am off to see The Punisher tomorrow afternoon and I am looking forward to it. Not so much the violence but to see Thomas Jane in tight clothes. Todd and I went to see Carla and Connie the other day. A so-so movie. Funny at parts but causes ppl to think (like all mainstream movies about gays) that we are all either drag queens or obviously flamboyant and always "funny". Blech. Like this one scene where the gay brother's fiance calls all the queens "freaks" and they all look so hurt and upset and totally disempowered. Who cares! I've been called worse than that by large groups of angry, drunken white men and still flipped them the bird. Who cares what Debbie Nobody thinks. Fuck her! I would have given her a few well chosen remarks that would have skinned her alive and still had time left to smack her upside the head with her immitation Prada faux-leather slingbacks. David Duchovney needs a new agent! It's always a pleasure seeing Toni Collette though.

And I don't care what anybody says... The Lord of the Rings Trilogy was boring and predictable. And Boring too. I can't believe they are making another Crow Movie. They'll never be as good as the first one. They haven't so far... although i did like Thomas Jane in number 2. But then I liked him in Deep Blue Sea and Nemesis and every other movie he's done. And I am sick of Marilyn Munroe. I'm going to bed because I feel like complaining some more and once I start I'll never get to sleep!!

PS. My title has absolutley nothing to do with anything.

Going, Going, went....
The Birthday has come and gone. The prezzies are bought and received. I am another year older. I am officially a 30something. Now I will have to grow a ponytail and buy life insurance. Help.

So, I am at odds with my new job. I still like what I do but i am tired of the instability of the job. What else can i do? I could move to TO and become someone's professional shopper. That would be an ideal job. Well, an ideal job would be to own and run my own comic/collectible shop (NO SPORTS CARDS!!!) Hmm.. but I'd want to own everything and not wish to sell it. This could be a hinderance. I got a lovely Wonder Woman bust from Toddy to add to my statue collection. She looks cool doing her Bullets and Bracelets routine. I sometimes look around this place and think, "I have too much stuff". I mean, it's everywhere... i don't have space for half of it. My Living Dead Dolls are all over the floor in the computor room... i have comics and comic boxes everywhere. I so afraid the cat will get mad at me and piss on my Adventure Comics featuring Superboy and the Legion of Super-heroes. Ack. Ok, tomorrow I am putting stuff up on Ebay. I've had some really flakes lately buying stuff from me. I actually got a money order with the wrong name on it. :P Hello??!! How many emails with my name did i send her!? I bought this lovely barbie as Greecian Goddess at WalMart and I am in love. I've already named her and everything... Olympia. How gay is that!? I have dolls coming out my ying-yang. The comic store downtown with the hot owner put their DC Direct Action figures to 10 bucks each... i am so crazed!! I bought a bunch of Authority and Legion of Superheroes guys and tomorrow I am going back for more. Maybe Shazam... sorry, Captain Marvel (He was always SHAZAM when I was a kid). Thanks B-Day money. I think I'll go buy Xena Season 3 on dvd tmorrow too. This materialism masks the pain inside.

SO bye.

Can't take that from me
A man can tell a thousand lies
i've learned my lesson well
blah blah

The Berlin cover of this song sucks to high heaven, but the Tori Amos version isn't too bad; however, I HATE when they are bootlegged from a concert and you can here some chick in the background crying by how beautiful it all is! :P:P shut up! "Tori Amos is playing madonna.. and Live to Tell at that... that song is basically a spiritual.. oh I am in another world.." AND YES.. the girl actually says THANK YOU during the song. Get real, bitch! This song's going right to the delete button.

I've become addicted with collecting as many 80s covers as I can. I can't believe some of the great covers out there. I've made 5 cds so far full of them... but I've given them all to my sister. hmmm.. Of course, there is some real shit too. Case in point--John Mayer's cover of GNR's PATIENCE... what a piece of shit. But then, I think his singing style in gerneral blows great big gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts. My faves so far is... hmm.. let's see..... Diva Destruction's Persephone cover (Cocteau Twins) and Thrice's Send Me An Angel by Real Life. Now that lead singer was so gay. My sister commented on one she really liked.. i don't remember what that was. Oh well.\

My plan for my two days off is to get my make-shift office in the bedroom re-establish and redecorated. My book must be done!!! I must finish my novel so my parent's will get off my back!! My old undergrad thesis co-advisor published a book that I really tried to read.. really I did. But it is the pinnacle of CANADIANA--MY GREAT ENEMY!!! I am so sick of hearing about prairies and barns with growing wysteria and rural folk and how daddy liked incest. Fuck Canadiana!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder I hated Uni of Guelph!!! I should have gone to Montreal!

Anyway, I love big butts and I cannot lie... ok, once I start singing rap songs I must flee.
