Out of the mouths of movers...
The housemate has a buddy with a van who's currently unemployed; he came over to help cart stuff from the old place to the new place yesterday. As we're loading bags and baskets into his van, he catches sight of one of the pieces of luggage with the ends of canes/riding crops sticking out, and says, "Either those are cat toys, or y'all are pretty damn kinky -- I'm not asking which one."

Well, he covered the two major possibilities... 0:-)

I have a date. (culled from inner monologue)
What to wear? Whattowear?Whattowear?Whattowear?

Sheesh. I am being a silly girl. At least my nails are purpled. And my hair. But I think I am wearing the wrong outfit. I have no clothes! Wait, I have lots of clothes. They mostly don't fit me. In size or... style? Do I have a style? Oh, well. If she likes me enough, I'll wear something cuter next time.

Now I have one for the idiot wall!
Out of nowhere...

HER: You have some seriously rigid requirements. How do you know I wouldn't be fun as hell to play with? I mean, who doesn't like an almost-virgin in the women department ;]?

ME: Me. Plus you're 21 and live in Palo Alto. But way to come off confrontational and egotistical in a first contact. *thumbs-up in an ironic hipster way*

HER: Perfect, way to come off as an egotistical bitch =]

HER: Oh, but hey, 5 the fact that you responded means you're slightly intrigued otherwise you would have ignored me completely. Honestly, you seem exactly like someone I'd want to meet judging by how seriously you take yourself and others! You don't really like to play, do you? Someone like you doesn't know what it means "to play", in fact; all you can do is judge and think way too highly of yourself.

Ode to chinders
This has been a while in coming. I think that every now and again one should receive a rave review in public (naturally, some people get more of these than others). So here's mine!

chinders is bright and bubbly and lots of fun to hang out with. The knockout figure and adorable face don't hurt. (She is also apparently EXTREMELY powerful, as the entire building's power shut off just as I was getting to the second paragraph.)

I describe her to friends as "25, but living the life of a 38-year-old", because she is mature and stable on top of being energetic and playful. She owns a home with her partners, is raising a dog, gardening, and doing handicrafts. She has a good job and the freedom to travel when she likes. She is, from what I can see, fabulous at handling interpersonal stuff and she works hard at setting appropriate boundaries. And she's accommodating without being a pushover, plus she can make decisions without being bossy.

A couple weeks ago, she drove up to the city on her week off, showed up at my sadly-disturbed house, and loaded more boxes than I'd thought possible into her bitty sports car. Then she drove us across the bridge (despite my complete and total lack of direction), managing to sing lead to "For the Longest Time" along the way (and tolerate my scattered harmony). Then she cheerfully schlepped boxes upstairs to the new apartment, located a restaurant that was open late and in the area, and enjoyed a delicious meal with me while regaling me with sexually explicit anecdotes. Did I mention that she doesn't care about what strangers think?

And a couple days later she met me at BART, rolled down the soft top, and we zoomed off to her place, where I officially met her Golden Retriever and the chickens, was introduced to her garden plot, and was fed one fresh, ripe, sunwarmed, practically orgasmic strawberry. Then we all curled up in the den and watched "Up" (yay!) and they only laughed at me a little bit when I covered my ears (instead of my eyes) at the scary parts. Afterward we played a card game simple enough for me and entertaining enough for the rest of them to be good sports for a round or two... and then she and I napped before dinner. Well, we snuggled and tickled and failed to actually nap. But still.

I am continually impressed by chinders's sunny personality, creative mind, and vigorous attitude. Also, one of the qualities I most admire in women is capability, and chinders has a can-do mindset that is very attractive. If she doesn't know how to do it, she knows how to find out. And she's willing to teach you. She inspires me to learn new things, and to have fun doing so.

It is my pleasure to present chinders with the Most Pleasant to Keep Company With award!

Unexpected Lyrics
Ever have one of those moments where you pause, then reach over to turn up the radio 'cause you're sure they didn't really just say what you thought they did? Happened to me this afternoon.

Leave it up to life
To bring a good woman down
It took 2 glasses of wine
Oh but you're comin’ round
Go on and let down your hair
Yeah, there’s the girl I know
Let's leave the world out there
And lock the door

Forget about the day you had
It’s over, baby, let it be
Every little thing's gone bad
I know exactly what you need
Turn out the lights
And take it all out on me

"Take It All Out on Me", Mark Wills

Chick Flicks?
I have been -- for several months -- interested in just curling up on the couch for a bit with a few chosen folks and indulging in a chick-flick-athon. Maybe bake cookies at the same time, or mess with each others' hair, or whatever. No idea when/where this will happen just yet (though I have hopes for my July vacation), but I'm open to film suggestions. Now and Then has always been a favorite; I'm a sucker for nostalgia based around female community (think also Fried Green Tomatoes, A League of Their Own, Little Women). Anything you think I should see? Even if it's classic, I may not have watched it.

I had a wonderful time this weekend (which is not quite over, but as I now have access to girldebra's laptop, I'm saying so right now).

If you met me there (yes, with the purple hair, the red bow, and the bounce), please add a comment here and let me know who you are! I'd love to add you to my LJ friends list.

Character description
(a good start, anyway)

It took a couple of seconds for Don to place in his mind just what a gregarian was. As a small child he had seen hundreds of the little satyr-like bipeds—faunas gregarious veneris Smythii—but he did not at first associate the common commercial name with the friendly, silly creatures he and his playmates, along with all other Venus colonials, had always called "move-overs" because of their chronic habit of crowding up against one, shouldering, nuzzling, sitting on one's feet, and in other ways displaying their insatiable appetite for physical affection.

How did we know?

You Are Combat Boots

You are a complete and total rebel. You refuse to do what you're told, and you're quite stubborn.

You really don't care what other people think of you. You are tough and often ruthless.

You are independent, iconoclastic, and countercultural. You resent authority figures.

You are very headstrong. No one is going to pressure you into being someone you're not!
