6:04 pm - Today is awesome...
...Because today for the second time in 2 months the reconciliation was PERFECT, MOTHERFUCKER. 

I. 

WIN.

And because it is raining.

And I have a shockingly small amount of work to do tonight before this first batch of hoodies to sell is totally goddamn done.  And then I'm putting them on Etsy.

And Anvil tomorrow.

And late night conversations that left me all goofy today about things we can't wait to do together like rodeos and monster truck rallies and Atlantic City.

And also because today I said, "I'll be careful", and he said, "You'll be dead!" and that fucking rules, especially on Star Wars day.

And because I realized, almost as an afterthought, that I finally feel closure and contentment about the trifecta of nonsense that's been going on for the past year.

(But still most especially because I reconciled the fuck out of that account.)

current mood: creative

I get to travel so much this summer!  I'm so fucking excited!

New York is in May, though that doesn't really count.  And I have an appointment there in a couple weeks to get my IMM tattoo, but think I might cancel it.

June is Chicago (where you better goddamn BELIEVE I am making time to visit the National Science Museum to see the Harry Potter exhibit...), then Texas for work.  And prior to that is Seattle for uh, non work.

August is Seattle for work this time, and several days in Portland with Brosef Conrad.  I'm trying to get both my brahs to be there, but Scottie is being....Scottie.  Whatever, I'll talk him into it.

There are other tentative travel plans as well, but nothing solid except June at this point.

In the meantime, my face feels like it's about to break.

I met a guy who calls me his old lady and talks about my "big doll-baby eyes" and how "goddamn motherfucking pretty" I am with a southern accent.  And he sounds like fucking Satan when he's singing but then he comes backstage and talks about 90210 and cats with me.

Plane tickets have been purchased. 

I am smitten as fuck.

I motherfucking hate my period.  It makes me such a weepy, hormonal mess.

I have been crying all day over the stupidest things possible.  In fact, I am crying right now.  Why? 

Because I started thinking about how Gypsy was neutered when she was about 3 weeks old.  When I got her she had a little shaved spot on her tummy where they did the surgery, and some teeny stitches.  She was all sick and gross and smelly and full of boogers.  I had to give her medicine in a little eye dropper and she had to sleep in a box beside the bed because she was too small to wander at night for fear of someone rolling over on her in their sleep.  She was so clumsy and weak and tiny she could barely stand on her own legs.  The boy cats picked on her, but not for long because she's a brutal little hellion and soon ruled the house.  She couldn't really meow because she was so sick, so she did this weird croaking thing instead that made her sound like a minion of the antichrist.  I wasn't looking for another cat when we found her, and if I'd been alone I wouldn't even have walked to that section of the pet store.  The pet store which, by the way, I stopped at on a random journey and that normally didn't even have cats for sale, but was doing a special program with the SPCA during the month when most kittens are born.  I didn't want a girl animal ever.  I don't know what the fuck I would ever do without this cat, and so many things could've prevented this moment; her sitting my lap purring and making muffins on my knee while I drip all over her thinking about how lonely and scared she must've been before I found her.

Jesus, I am such a pussy.

Fade and I are no more.

I am really, really, really, unbelivably sad about John.

I have to go to the doctor tomorrow for something really scary and am a total panicked mess.

It seems like all of my friends except a couple have totally abandoned me lately.  I'm a horrible friend, so I'm not mad.  But I am really thankful for those few people I haven't managed to push away by acting like a dick.  Like Mark.  He's so awesome to me I could just cry.

Maybe I will go cry, actually.

12:29 pm - Be obsequious and purple and clairvoyant.
We saw Patton Oswalt again last night.

On Friday Fade said, "Reba, you got romance comin' out of you..."

Yesterday we started calling Seth "Squiggles".

It's been a very giggly week.

When we were at the aquarium today, Fade silently came up behind me, picked me up by the shoulders while I was walking, and just threw me like 10 feet in front of where I'd been.  I didn't fall or stumble, I just glided through the air without moving and then landed in the exact same position I'd been in when I left the ground. 

That was a the funniest, stupidest thing anyone's done to me in a while.

My computer got a horrendous virus that totally destroyed it within a couple hours.  I finally got it fixed today...caved and called some repair people to do it for me.  I'm so thankful I did, though, because they were able to retrieve EVERYTHING.  This happened back in December and I'd already mourned the loss of my insanely large music collection.

Which I am now backing up.

Convention season for work started again so I have been busy out of town.  Just got back from London.  It snowed 4 inches there but because it was the first snowfall in years everyone acted like it was a fucking blizzard.  They closed the goddamn airport for two days.  Because we can put this machine in the sky and fly it from continent to continent, but it cannot traverse 4 inches of melting water.

Next week it will have been 6 months since I quit drinking.

And now, if you'll excuse me, I have an awful lot of bad VH1 shows to catch up on.

10:24 pm - Let's...

"I decided what the cats are made of!"
"Yeah?"
"Gypsy is cupcakes and muffins and rainbows and sunshine.  Smooze is bottle caps and pennies and back issues of National Geographic and toy trains."
"And you're made of sadness held together with chewed gum and smegma."
"You're made of hair held together with eyeliner and the sepia filter on a camera and the keys to an out of business Sizzler buffet."
"Eat a bag of whale dicks."
"Let's wax your head!"
"Let's put bleach in your eyes."
"Let's pour drano in your ears and see if it kills you or makes you retarded."
"Let's set fireworks off in your cunt."
"Let's feed you glass."
"Let's tie you up in the ice cave and rape you with a turkey carver."
"Let's put you on a trampoline and I'll get underneath and start stabbing at it with a sword and we'll see how long you survive."
"I'm not going to marry you."
"Thank god."

8:01 pm - GODDAMMIT!

So, today my boss told me that she wanted me to go on a leg of the Musink tour (the Kat Von D tattoo convention...last year it was just a weekend, this year it's a whole tour) which I've been wanting to do for MONTHS for a million reasons, not the least of which because fucking Motorhead is headlining.  I never thought she'd let me go, though, because I'm so busy at work all the time.  Anyway, she decided I was going.  And there was much rejoicing.

Until I just google-searched to find out the tour date specifics for my calendar and oh, hey!  One fucking hour ago they announced that Musink is cancelled due to the "current economic climate".

Thanks, George Bush!  I COULD'VE PARTIED WITH PHILTHY ANIMAL.  >:O

Fade was going to come over tonight so we could go see Nachtmystium, but I decided to be responsible and vote against that because, for real, so fucking unbelievably busy at work and no matter how much we say we're going to bed at a reasonable time we'll be awake until the sun comes up for sure.  Now I'm grumpy and want to change my mind, though.

This has been brought up to me several times...I hadn't even remotely considered it until today when I stopped by Seth's work to pick up THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER and have a brief chat.

We've been talking about moving.  I'd go anywhere if the opportunity presented itself were it not for my job.  I fucking hate Philadelphia more than anything on earth.  I seriously don't even leave  the house anymore.  I go to work, I come home and hang out here doing my own shit, I run errands as minimally as possible, and I go to New York almost every weekend.

The thing is, I really, really, truly love my job.  But is that reason enough to not have a life because I hate where I live?  I'm not sure I even have a good REASON for hating where I live...other than it seems like there's nothing to do but get drunk (3 months, sober, by the way.  Yes, you may pat me on the back and of course I would like a cookie, who do you think you're talking to?) and I'm sick of absolutely everyone.

Anyway, I have a job somewhere else if I want it in a few months.  It would be temporary but (maybe) enough time for me to find something else.  And I only say maybe because the economy is such shit.  I have somewhere to stay, also.

It took me so long to find a job that I love.  On the other hand, I know I won't be working there forever so what am I waiting for, exactly?  I suppose it has a future, but it's not what I want to DO.  And I could do the same thing for any number of other companies.  Plus now I have accountant and bookkeeper to add to my resume instead of "years of worthless retail management experience, mostly with strippers and prostitutes".

I should put that exact quote on my resume.

FRIDAY

  • TACO PARTY AT WORK!!

SATURDAY
  • Weird happy birthday morning songs.
    • In a southern accent
      • And also, somehow, black metal
  • Breakfast at organic place
    • Ordered "Wolf Jaw" because of funny name and also because a crazy man on the sidewalk just told Fade to cut his hair because he looked like a wolf
      • Thankfully, was more delicious than Fade's hair (note: speculation)
         
    • Learned about puffins on the back of a cereal box
      • "I don't like them, they're so weird looking.  It's like a penguin wearing a toucan costume."
        • What the fuck is not to love about that!?
  • Waiting for Eric to get his lazy ass out of bed.
    • French guest tattoo artist thinks I say I want to go shopping for "cheese" when I actually say "shoes" and no one realizes until after 10 minutes of describing a great place to find what I'm looking for, Fade realizes he's been painstakingly giving me directions to Trader Joe's.
      • Hah.
    • Fade complains about his leg hurting.
      • And is relentlessly mocked for hours.
    • Fade makes a joke about Gypsy being homeless
      • Tears follow
        • Way to go, dumbass.
  • Shopping!
    • No shoes in my size.  ;(
      • So buy a $90 vintage Megadeth shirt instead
        • Because it's my fucking birthday and I can, ok?
    • And also a "gothic ring" in the "demon design"
      • Which is essentially brass knuckles with an enormous silver plated dragon and a huge red gem
        • That Fade has to wear all night because, again, my birthday.
  • Rasputina
    • Am in love with Eric's boyfriend
    • Eric embarrasses Fade in the car by accident
      • Is likewise embarrassed when I tell him what happened
        • As a result, thinks the only appropriate solution is to completely humiliate me
          • What a fucking jerk.
    • Audience is nothing but obnoxious hipsters
      • Who won't shut the fuck up about their bad hair and dumb ironic t-shirts even though the goddamn woman on stage with the microphone asks them politely, and then not so politely, to stop.
    • New linup again!?
      • Blech, hate the new male cellist singing backup
        • Especially on songs from the first two albums
      • Drummer is ok, but miss Jonathan
      • Melora remains the most adorable woman on the planet
    • Amazing, as usual, but have been more amazing
  • 1:30 AM show of Twilight
    • Think am going to die of tiredness
      • But nothing to perk me up like
    • A NEW HARRY POTTER PREVIEW!!!
      • Oh.
      • MY.
      • GOD!!!
        • DID YOU SEE THE FUCKING DARK MARK!?!? DID YOU SEE IT DID YOU SEE IT LOOKS SO FUCKING AWESOME AAAAAGH.
          • "Um, please stop screaming in my face, Rebecca."
    • WORST.  MOVIE.  EVER.
      • Seriously.
        • But it did make me feel better about liking the book, because it wasn't very true to it.
          • And listen, I'll grasp at whatever straws necessary to feel better about liking these books.
      • Are both bored beyond belief
        • Decide to keep us awake by TALKING ABOUT HARRY POTTER OH MY GOD.
          • Dark mark!!!
          • Horcruxes!!
          • SNAPE!
          • LUCIUS MALFOY!!!
            • "Seriously, Rebecca, I know you're excited.  But you are yelling again."
              • "BUT THEY'RE GOING TO THE CAVE WITH THE DEAD PEOPLE IN THE GREEN WATER AND AAAAGH1!!!!"
                • "..."
                  • :x
  • 4 AM Subway fun
    • Am so excited the bad movie is over and we're outside so I can't get in trouble for the volume of my voice when I talk about THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE AND HORCRUXES AND SNAPE BUT MOST ESPECIALLY THAT BADASS DARK MARK
      • "I am not even kidding. I will ride on a different car."
    • Become the giggliest, most fidgety person alive in an effort to keep awake (and contain my excitement about Harry Potter since I can't yell)
      • Fade decides listening to me have a seizure about the preview is better than me trying to undo one of his dreads with my fingers while I laugh my ass off about a really old Russian woman in designer clothes
        • DARK MARK FTW!
SUNDAY
  • 10 A.M.
    • My god, what is that horrible song.
      • Oh, you put it on to annoy me awake.
        • Can dish it out, but cannot take it.
  • Am getting sick. :(
  • Detour on way home to stop and see an old friend
    • !!!
      • ...
        • ???
  • Get horrendously lost trying to find the turnpike again
    • So much so that we end up hanging out again after he finishes work 2 hours later, because that's how long I drove around in the world's biggest circle
      • I repeat: "!!!"
  • After, not lost, but still miss exit for turnpike and drive a million miles on a road with lights to the next one
    • And end up 20 minutes from NYC again, almost 8 hours after I fucking left.
      • Goddammit.
  • Home!
    • Gypsy!!!
      • FUCK, I love her!!!!
    • Shower!!
      • Because I forgot to put on deoderant yesterday and I smell like a bouquet of homeless men's socks.
    • Bed!!
      • Well, in a minute.

My birthday started today.  8 days early.

Faith and I had girls night since I won't be here next weekend.  We got our nails done and I got eyelash extensions.  Really, I was so, so, SO nervous I would end up looking like a drag queen, but I got the smallest ones and even though they feel weird and I can see them all the time which is annoying, they're ok.  Or I might just accidentally pick them off because I can't stop touching them and then it'll look like I have eyelash mange.

And we got sandwiches and had some great conversation.

And, upon returning home, I had more confusing, butterfly inducing emails that mean more to me than they should.

And now I'm watching rifftrax on demand which is the best thing of all time and going to bed.

This weekend:
  • Girls night in with gay boyfriend, burger king, and a stack of bad movies
    • Baby Mama? Not so funny.
    • The Happening? I could complain for hours.
    • Itty Bitty Titty Committee? Can't say I wasn't warned that I would hate it, but still, no.
  • Girls day out at the movies with gay boyfriend
    • Waiting in line makes me mad.
      • And loud.
    • But winning tons of fake platinum necklaces from claw machines balances the experience.
    • Zack and Miri Make A Porno? Funny...but not the funniest.
  • Brooklyn
    • Gave my prize ice from claw machine to Ice. Then made him wear it all night. And laughed at his expense. A lot.
    • Let The Right One In (wow, for someone who hates going to the movies I did it an awful lot yesterday), Swedish vampire movie, really good.
      • But disappointed they did not tie up loose ends about cats possibly becoming vampires.
        • And would not let it go for hours.
    • MILKSHAKES!!
      • Mmmmm...milkshakes.
    • 6AM silliness.
    • 11AM is harsh after 6AM silliness.
    • Re-christened
    • Not loving the new nickname.
      • But loving it a lot more than "Reba". 
  • Home
    • Grocery shopping
      • Maintaining a love/hate relationship with Thriftway
    • Target
      • Cracked under mass marketing and comparison to Harry Potter and bought Twilight.
        • Am embarrassed enough; stop laughing.
    • Sewing and watching The Office all day.
      • But really, procrastinating and reading Twilight.


current mood: happy

After an unrelentingly bad summer things are finally starting to look up.

- My bosses asked me to work a couple trade shows in February. One in Vegas and one in London! I'll be gone a week for each and I can't wait!
- I was really worried about my birthday being total shit this year, but turns out Rasputina is playing on my birthday in Brooklyn, where I was most likely going to be anyway.
- I did something really ridiculous for my parents anniversary, but it's only half finished so I don't want to share it just yet. It'll be done the day before my birthday so I'll just post pictures instead.
- It's been almost 3 months since I quit drinking and honestly? I don't miss it AT ALL. Every time I think about how long it has been I am really just proud of myself and so thankful that it's been so long since I've had to deal with a hangover.
- On the same note, I totally mastered the sewing machine and have been making tons of clothes as a substitute for going to the bar all the time.
- I am finally starting to let my guard down a little bit and...so far, so good.
- Did I mention I love the shit out of my job? I love the shit out of my job.
- Eric and I have been spending tons of time together again.

So, my phone broke last week and I was without a phone until yesterday. My financial situation is still pretty shitty. My roommate is missing and hasn't paid rent yet, which means I had to pay all of it and am going to be totally broke until he reappears (and gets his scrawny ass thrown down a flight of stairs, by the way).

But things are still looking up!

I started my new job today. I had to be up at 7 AM. I don't think I've woken myself up that early since like, high school.

I liked it a lot. I know I'll like it more when my nerves ease. I can't wait for the tattoo convention this weekend, but also am nervous about that because I have to spend 3 whole days with a relative stranger and we are sleeping in bunk beds (what?).

I am supposed to keep doing ebay for my boss some nights during the week, but I am beginning to think that will be impossible. Not that it matters, because I can't live on the salary I'm getting at the new job so I'll just have to make it possible for now.

And it is really nice to be done work at 5.

John is inexplicably annoying me today.

I guess I should probably go to bed.

John came home from work and handed me this:



So, that is Gypsy. But it requires a little explaining.

I cannot seem to call the cats by their actual names. Jambi and Smooze, kind of, but Gypsy has been called "Gypsy" like, 5 times her whole life. The gammut of nicknames is too long to bore you with, but they are constant and ever evolving.
John was making fun of me one day and he called her "puffin muffin", which stuck, and after various other incarnations was shortened to simply "moof". But, duh, there are 900 variations of Moof, too.
You know how the French word for grapefruit is Pomplemousse? No? Well...you know where this is heading. I call her Pomplemoof sometimes.

This morning we went to brunch and John was looking at the beer list, noticed something called "le chouffe" and said, "Is that how you spell 'Moof'?" Uh, it is now.

So then he drew this for me today and I love it so much I cried and guh.

One week from today I will be starting work here. I literally cannot fucking wait.

I HATE my job. HATE!

And at Sourpuss I'll be doing office work. And working conventions on the weekend. My very first week I am doing the NYC Tattoo convention! CAN. NOT. WAIT.

I have always wanted to work for this company, but goddamn did the job opening pop up at the right time. I've been talking myself out of just walking out of this place for like, 2 months. Now that I have so little time left (ONE WEEK!! GAH!) being here is truly unbearable. Thankfully it is mostly dead, but when I do get customers I just want to scream and throw pens at them. Don't they know I have very important blogs to be reading on the internet? Jeez.

My boss is trying everything to get me to stay, and it feels so good to just laugh in his face when he offers me more money. I will already be making less there than I do here, but I could not give a fuck. Plus, since putting in my notice, I finally had the balls to say something about how often my boss calls me, and he actually kind of stopped!

Other than that excitement everything is pretty much the same. John and I are good. Cats are good except Jambi. I have been writing and working on the book a LOT, or at least I was, but then I broke my hand. I had the insane priveledge of backstage passes to Megadeth in NYC last week and it rocked my face off. And I am getting some guinea pigs soon.

I guess that is about it.

Faith and I djed last night again. It wasn't packed but a ton of my random friends came. Most importantly Joe, who sprung on me that he got fucking ENGAGED! Joe is growing up without me. It's a little weird. But overall I am really happy for him. I love Tie, I think she's great for him, and he really seems to be content with everything so that's all I care about.

I keep telling myself I'm going to clean my office/room but every time I open the door it just looks like such a daunting task. I should take a picture of this shit...this room is a nightmare.

I need a vacation.
