Holy Snowmaggeddon! Can you say WHITE DEATH! Seriously, another 10-16 inches ON TOP of the two feet we already have from this weekend! Good God. Thankfully I got home safely just now.

Oh updating and how I suck at it. Let's see so far this summer I have done nothing but work, work, work with occasional breaks to see The B-52s with Bill, (the only other dork willing to go with me), and hopefully to see STEVE MILLER BAND with Malini tomorrow! Other than that I need a fucking vacation. Portland here I come again! With Mike!

Note to Petra and Megan: September 10th-ish to the 16th-ish sounds ok?

In any case much is the same. I am still trying to figure out something meaningful to do with my life and trying to find some sort of love life which has been non-exsistant for far too long...rage...RAGE...

Just to clarify my last post. I got completely fucked out of going to an Aerosmith and ZZ Top concert because the two people I was going with got 10th row seats from someone and there wasn't one for me. So I would have had to go all the way out to Nissan Pavilion and sat on the lawn by myself. Fuck that.

But...I'm over it. There will be other awesome concerts, I just know it.

It's cold as shit here!!!!

Well, I know it's a tad late to write a "Beginning of the Year" post but, oh well. I'll do this one half-assed, I won't go over major events from 2008.

I am really glad that it is 2009. I have big plans for this year, besides the usual crap I list every year (lose weight, blah blah blah)I really want to find a new place to live. I will move almost anywhere at this point. I make an excellent roommate. Any takers? Just let me know.

In less than one month I will be jetting out to Portland to go visit the BEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD!!! I am so looking forward to eating in vegan restaurants, lurking in funky book shops, making vegan feasts, playing with two new kitties(!), drinking Andre (you know it has to happen), being silly, and much much more! I need a vacation so badly. I can't wait!

That's all for now folks!

Greetings from LA!
I am sitting a computer in a coffee shop while Becky is at her comedy class at The Groundlings studio. LA has been awsome. So far I have:

-gone to the Bodhi Tree Bookstore in West Hollywood. Oh my God, there couldn't be a bookstore more up my alley!

-ate at various hipster cafes and restaurants

-went to Dresden, which is the bar where they filmed Swingers, there was a jazz trio singing "Puff the Magic Dragon"

-went to an awsome improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre where Becky interns, it was right across from the Scientology Celebrity Center (sooooooooo scary and big! dude, scientology centers are like Starbuck's here)

-had a celebrity sighting!!!! While in line for the improv show, Sandra Oh walked by!! She is much shorter in person than you might think. Becky lives about a block away from the studio where they film Grey's Anatomy by the way

-did the touristy stuff like the hand prints, wax museam, driving around illegally in various private communities in Beverly Hills near Mullholland Dr. (I took some amazing pictures of the view)

-went to Venice Beach and chilled, talked to some random woman in a smoke shop about Salvia

-went to City Walk at Universal Studios, ate at a Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant, saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Well, that's all for now, tomorrow we are embarking on a mini-trip to VEGAS!!!! Can't wait to see everyone when I get back. I will update more later.

Oh, one last thing, I will be getting back close to 11:30pm on Monday, anyone interested in picking me up from the airport? If not, that's ok.

I getting my own car on Tuesday!!!

My own! As in my money! Isn't that insane!?!?!

Now imagine a large deep purple box. Now imagine it with wheels, that is my car. It is quite possibly the strangest looking car, like a demented London taxi cab or an ice cream truck if you will, but smaller of course. It's a 2005 Scion xB. It is so roomy inside, leather heated seats, awsome stereo. I love it! It's adorable and weird. I am prepared for a lot of people to knock it down based on appearence, but once I take you for a ride inside you will love it. Did I mention that it's very fuel efficient! (since despite the boxy appearence it is actually a small car in disguise). It also takes up less parking space than most modern sedans.

So you may sneer or laugh or kindly yet sarcastically say "Oh, that's....nice...Em..."
I don't care, I can't wait to give you all a wonderful joy ride in my purple cube!

Well it's obvious that I haven't posted anything in a really long time, hence the reason no one really reads my journal anymore. But, for those of you who are reading I'll give a brief update.

-I'm visiting my friends in LA in May! I can't fucking wait!!! We may even drive out to Las Vegas for a day or two! Fucking crazy!

-I'm still with the mystery man per se. But things may be ending soon, certain things are getting on my nerves.

-I may be visitng Karyn in Williamsburg this summer as well since she may move into her off-campus apartment a bit early.

-Work is work, but I really do love (most of) the people I work with. My work friend Deb and I are planning a trip to Leesburg on Wednesday to visit this spiritual/occult/Wiccan shop called Esoterica. I'm really intrigued, judging from their website they've got a lot of shit, and apparantly the store is run by some creepy old man.

-I'm seeing Lez Zeppelin on April 18th at the State Theatre in Falls Church! I haven't been there since our Distand Replay days!! (I seriously miss those by the way. "I like the young ones!" I'm still young right?)

-My mom and I are going to a French Cooking demonstration/seminar on April 30th at the Academie de Cuisine in Bethesda.

-I got new birth control pills. (ok, maybe I'm taking this update a little to far, but come on, there is something exciting about a fresh pack of not-being-pregnant pills)

That's all for now.

To start 2008 The Year of Self, I have been on a total health kick and it feels amazing!

Five pounds are almost gone and I have more energy than ever! Things are looking up.

By the way, for those of you who know what I'm talking about my Fluidity (ballet) bar came in the mail and it is simply amazing. I am doing the beginner positions on the beginner workout and it is fucking hard!

R.I.P Teddy, Tedsama, Tedson, Theodore, Ted Davis
My parents had to put down Teddy yesterday. He had developed and ulcerated sore on his leg, was in lots of pain, was taking antibiotics, and had stopped eating and drinking. They took him to the animal hospital yesterday to get some fluids in him through an IV. They ran some tests and found out that his kidneys were failing and were not filtering out anything. He was also developing another sore. He could barely walk the last couple of days. He was fine a week ago.

It all came so fast. He was really suffering and getting worse by the minute so my parents decided to put him down. I was on my way to work for my second shift when they called me. When I went home between shifts and saw that they all weren't at home I had a bad feeling. I did see him in the morning before work, but I didn't get to say goodbye one last time. Although I don't know if I could have handled seeing him there and being put down. I'm glad my parents were with him. They are really upset, especially my Dad. They were the best of friends. We have a plaster indentation of his paw that they did at the hospital, and my mom cut off a lock of his fur. We will have his ashes in a day or so.

I know he was mean to all of you, but he was sweet to me and my family. He sends you a bite from beyond the grave, with love. You did keep him entertained all these years and let him feel as though he was protecting his family.

I miss him so much.

So I had my sugery on Wednesday. I am very uncomfortable right now, but doing good considering. The procedure went well, I am cyst free. I will update more when I am not in the cloud that is known as Oxycodone.

It's a beautiful day.

I managed to get a few days off this week. The rest has done me a world of good. I have no idea what the next few months are going to be like, I feel very lost at the moment. I just want a sign that everything is going to be ok.

-excellent Korean food
-two hours of drunken TABOO
-a reenactment of David's cousin's wedding done with soda bottles
-the realization that I was indeed on X at Molly's Thanksgiving break party two years ago, and the wonderment of why he and I didn't make out right then and there (reason: boyfriend at the time, his response to that: FUCK HIM!)
-being discovered by a faceless roommate in the dark

What a pretty bizarre and wonderful evening. I also met an adorable 20 year old gay boy who happens to hang out with a bunch of crazy straight boys (they are all so cute together), we had a detailed conversation about Nair. If you have balls, do not put Nair on them. And if you think putting aftershave on them will help calm them down you would be incredibly wrong (read: he fainted when he did that). The thought of this poor young man putting aftershave on his balls to calm them down after he had Naired them and then fainting from the pain of his mistake has been cracking me up all day.

Oh man.

Ok, for some more serious updating. I will be getting surgery on the 28th of this month to remove my giant cyst. This thing started to throb again and could only be dealt with my taking two percocets. That was bad. It could get worse, so the thing is going to have to come out. I've been hearing horror stories about these things popping and infecting the blood stream or rupturing the ovary. Mine is big enough (10 fucking centimeters!) that it is starting to freak me out. Also my crappy short term insurance will not cover the surgery. It will be obscenely expensive. The stress from all of this, and fighting the insurance company to cover my fucking EMERGENCY ROOM VISIT, has been eating me alive. This being said, I will not be moving to California next month because I want to be sure that I am absolutely fine before I make such a big change. Also the expenses from this surgery is putting a strain on the whole thing, seeing as my parents were going to help me out when I got to CA. Moving across the country is damn expensive. This is all happening at the wrong time.

However, this does not mean that I am not moving out there, no no. I will be moving most likely around spring or summer of next year when the lease has run out from my two friends apartment out there, around when Meg and Petra move perhaps. So please do not think that I have given up all of my hopes and dreams. I just need time to get my shit together. I really wasn't giving myself enough time. To be honest, as excited as I was, I was not ready yet. My health needs to be taken care of first as well.

I am not bummed about being around here for longer than I expected however. I have been having my fun (as you can see from above) and I really like the people I work with right now. I am getting my year off that I really need.

Don't you just love it when your ex-boyfriend gets engaged within months after he dumped you? I know it makes me feel like an attractive and wonderful person.

NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm the new Ovarian.
So it has been quite a week. On Sunday I spent nearly the entire day in the Emergency Room. I had severe lower stomach pain that woke me up in the morning which after sonogram and cat scan turned out to be a four inch ovarian cyst. Of course at the ER they said to have it checked out because there was a "possibility of malignancy." Great, so all of Monday I sat around thinking there was a chance that I could have cancer. I saw my gyno on Tuesday (who is awsome by the way) and she told us that she is 99% sure I do not have cancer and that my cyst is possibly a result of going off birth control for three months and having my ovaries go into overdrive now that nothing is getting in their way. Good news, very good news. Still I had a blood test to make sure that certain levels of whatever aren't extremely high (indicating possible cancer), I should be getting those results tomorrow, but my doctor is extremely confidant that it is nothing serious since I am A)very young and B) no one AT ALL in my family has every had ovarian cancer and C) my birth control situation maps out perfectly what she thought the cause was. I'm even at the most fertile point of my cycle which would explain why it appeared and started to hurt when it did. I haven't been in pain at all since coming back from the hospital and I have a new set of birth control pills waiting to obliterate my ovarian cyst. I've even gone back into work since I feel absolutely fine now. Just thought I would let everyone know since I have been too tired/stressed to write about it or go about updating everyone until now. So think happy healthy thoughts about my ovaries before you go to sleep at night, not that you didn't already.

Can't wait to see Knocked Up tonight!
