My babies are HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^
(A Slurpee goes to the 1st person who can ID which kitty this is. ;))
And I'm boycotting MetroAccess. (I was just told during a customer complaint session that "maybe MetroAccess isn't the service for you." Ex-fucking-scuse me, bitch???? No you DIDN"T!! So I just cancelled a subscription I just made last week. It was gonna be my first. Ah well. I'm not dealing with the motherfuckers anymore.
On the up side, MY BABIES ARE HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It feels so surreal.. . Like I'm hallucinating... First there's having my new apartment.. and then my previously almost mythical babies are home... WOW!!! ^_^
Well, I hope all of you are doing okay.
*hugs to all*
I HAVE AN APARTMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah jus' got mah keys fer it taday. ^_^
Hopefully a housewarming will be soon forthcoming. :):):):
Wow.. now the "scared" part is starting to kick in... It's all MINE yes, and also all MY responsability... Plus if I get mugged there.. robbed.. locked out.. wow... But hey- everything's nearby, it's a great group of people at the office, my place is a little old an' the neighborhood is a li'l ghetto.. but it's ALLLLL MIIIIIINE..!!!!!!!
Now I gotta go figger out how I'm gonna construct the layout of the place..- and get essentials like a shower curtain, bedroom furniture, and a vacuum!! O.O ^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^
Now, how to get stuff going.. like the painting & the bringing up of the kitties..??? Should I bring 'em when everything's done, or haul 'em up this weekend, to share in the event n' re-bond w/Mommy??? (We're gonna herbally sedate them n' keep 'em in the carrier if they get brought up this weekend. I miss them SOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!)... Hmm...
Any advice, anyone..?
I am feeling SO broken today. ;\
Plus I was a dork and forgot to reserve MA, so I got to walk to the bus, take regular PT to work, and get to do the same all over again to get home. :P:P (I know, I'm a dork. S'all my own fault. I know. ;))
I had a BREAT weekend, though. ^_^ I got to spend time w/flameofsilver , I saw Jen and Chris Thursday night, signed my lease on Sat., went to do a quick camera thing on a li'l movie I'm helping out with, had dinner at the yumtastic Bennigans, (MMMM, GUINESS SAUCE!!! ;D) and Sunday I got to give gifts out to friends at my D&D game, (they all seemed to dig their gifts, too! :D:D), and followed that up with going to the L-Word 5th season premiere at Town DanceBoutique. (Which is a -kickass- club in DC that all folks in the area should TOTALLY visit. ;D:D)
So why do I hurt, then..?? Well first off I had a BUSY weekend w/-very- little sleep included. Then I stood in a line for an hour+ that wrapped around the block, danced a TON and stood --all night,-- then stood more for another hour or so waiting for MA after the event. All told it was a BLAST. I danced first as usual- embarrassing the crap out of myself amidst a HUGE crowd (couldn't resist the music), boogied w/some strangers @ the end of the night, got some cool free bits upon leaving, and had an all-around good time. ^_^ Problem is- I got home LATE, hadn't eaten all day so I stayed up a while longer to scavenge for food & eat, and then I ---crashed.--- Now I'm -completely- sacked out, (haven't slept more than four hours a night in the past week), I have no food w/me 'cause I didn't have time to snag anything, (NEEDED to shower after last night), and as for my feet... Well... Ow.
I repeat: Ow. ... ;)
I hope everyone else had a rockin' weekend, and that soon I can tell folks I got my new place all squared away, give everyone my new address, and have my kitties and my ratties all back together in one nice, big, fuzzy family. ^_^ I move in this weekend, and frankly, it can't come soon enough. ^_^
Love Love Love Love Love to All,
First off, (yes, I know it's not the weekend tonight, but I still gotta post about it, ^_^) I GET TO SEE JEN AND CHRIST ODAY!!!! *glee glee glee glee glee*
We're meeting up after work, I get to give them their prezzies, and who knows what else afterward? :D:D:D:D I can't wait, and hope that Jen and Chris are lookin' forward to it, too. ^_^
Second, my ACTUAL weekend agenda:
Friday: Root canal at four, meeting about a makeup artist job I'm doing at seven till ten thirty. Metro Access transport all between.
Saturday, finish up the few things I have to do for gifts on Suday. Then:
Get MA to pick me up at 2, so I can be in MD by my appointment at 3 TO SIGN MY LEASE!!! ^_^_^_^_^_^_^_^ I don't wanna jinx it or anything, but I'm looking forward to the plan, and hope that everything goes through okay. ^_^ (Memo to me; remember to look thoroughly over pet policy- of which they have NO PET RENT OR PET DEPOSIT!!! ^_^)
From there at four fifteen I'm heading over to another film meeting, which will be held at five, and presumable go till.. sevenish.? Maybe??
Sunday from noon to five I'll be at game. Normally I'm gaming till six, but this weekend IS THE L WORD PREMIER!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D Amupme who wants to come w/me still totally can. ^_^ They suggest being there by six 'cause they'll be full, and I've seen long lines at these things, so it's not surprising. That goes till ten or eleven or so, and then... Snooooore..!!! Time to crash and get ready for work agian on Monday. ^_^
If all goes well on Saturday, w/Heritage Square, I get to MOVE IN ON THURSDAY!!!! ^_^_^_^_^_^_^ (Which means I'll ask for my keys on Sat., and end up there Thursday night after work, bringing me, my ratties, and anything else I can carry to the place so I can start sleeping there and coming to work from there from then on. ^_^
Busy busy busy!!, no? O.O Wish me luck all, and hopefully soon I'll be having the housewarming before too long. ;D:D:D (I wanna get the place ready and nice before people show up, so it'll likely not happen for a few weeks after I move all my shite...) The weekend after this one I'l be able to go to H-burg, pick up my kitties & snag my stuff outta storage so I can move in en-true. Wish me luck all, and I hope you have a great weekend, too! ^_^
( DOWNS: )
PS, Did anyone else know they have an ACB RADIO now??? O.O Radio for and by people w/visual impairments!!! BLind musicians, singers & DJs n' stuff!!! How cool is that??? O.O Maybe I might actually have a shot at this singing career after all. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ Again, let's hope. ;)
Love to All, 'N Hope to See You This Weekend at Faire!! :D:D
Ooh, and I made a submission to a very silly site called I Can Has Cheezburger. It's all about funny cat pics and silly captions. (Grammar whores be warned- the captions are done in a kind of odd, silly net-speak, so it's kinda painful, but it might help some to know the misspellings are at least intentional... ;)) Plus they're funny, and oft quite cute. ^_^ Here's one of the two I did:
I dunno if they're even gonna put it up on their voting page or not, but hope you guy like! There's another one w/the same pic, where the caption reads "Yu goda hehl!! Yu goda hehl n' yu dah!!!" If folks want me to put that one up too, lemme know. :) ..Oh and yes, that is my Una-kitty. *beams* (Who I miss very much, as I've not seen her or her brodder in a month. Wish me luck for this apartment so I can at least get my babies back!! *sobs*)
Hope all's well w/everyone, and that Doug and Tenoya are having a marvelous honeymoon vacation right now. ^_^ Thank you so much you two for inviting me to your beautiful wedding. It was a TON of fun, and it was great (as well as a great honor) to see you to wed.
PS. This is one of my favorite blessing songs, and I send it to you two on you and for your new marriage:
"May you walk the shores of harmony.
May you live a life of peace,
May you fill your cup of joy,
May you both find home.
May you play among the stars,
May your wishes have wings,
May you know just who you are,
And may you live your dreams."
It's got 1330 sq. feet, W/D, DW, is -right next to the Greenbelt Metro,- plus they're pet friendly!!! ^_^ It's even got a DEN!! (So I can either make it a guest space, use it as storage, or just put up my spiritual stuff there. :D:D *beams* Plus I know they've got these available, and they're only $899!!! I looks perfect for me, and I just can't wait to see it in person. ^_^ True, that apartment rating site doesn't have anything good to say about it- but if you're familiar w/it, or have read any other reviews there about any other place, no one really has anything good to say at that site, as a rule. (I'm guessing they're mostly folks who need a forum to complain about places, as a general rule, but I imagine some of it is valid, yes? --'Cause not EVERY place on there can have THAT much negative stuff going on.. right??) I really hope I get this, and I really hope I get into this place. It looks like just the space I need for my art studio, w/just enough space for me, my two kitties, and all of our stuff! ^_^
'M SO excited!!! (No bad feeling at all, even. Aave checked m'gut, n' that's a GOOD sign. ^_^)
Wish me luck to get through the security screening process, get my clearance, start this job, and get this place!! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D It's called Springhill Lake, is in Greenbelt, and I just can't wait to get things started. :):):)
My mom (who's a necessary evil because she's helping me move, see places, and possibly cosign) -swears- Greenbelt is a crappy, ghetto, crime-riddled & dangerous place, but I haven't heard much bad about it- and I grew up in NoVA hearing all -kinds- of things about the bad areas in the DC vacinity. I know (from a few news reports I've heard) it's not a -great- area, but I'd rather an ookaaaay area and live in a place I love than be in a "Great" area, forced to live in its pocket ghetto, subsisting in a 3sq. ft. hovel that costs me an arm & a leg. You know what I mean? I don't want to chance getting shot everytime I go outside, but I want to -like- the place I'll be forced to live in for at least a year.. right??
An' hell, it's WAY better than some of my other prospects (w/amenities and places that I can afford, w/o living in a cement box that costs me $1,500 p. mo.) like Oxon Hill, Capital Heights, etc.- which I KNOW are bad parts of town...
Now, has anyone heard/know anything about Springhill Lake apartments? Or anything about the Greenbelt area?
Many Thanks & Cheers,
