Since it's 1/3/12 and Leslie has asked for a review, I sent her one.

But since I went to Cali in February, I'm post dating:

aww! i do love my kitten. she is a special little laptop-laying-on beast. :D

so! we go in, and there's a HUGE gift shop of fun, and a bunch of displayed stuff that is all about the winchester stuff. old school lawn mowers, awls, etc. lots of cool stuff. some freak of nature built a GINGER BREAD HOUSE in the right proportions of the house, so that's there.

then you go in through her carriage room. you see how tiny she had everything. she was like, 4'8" so she made the house to her height. she also had AWFUL arthritis, so she had these stairs that were like, 2 inches tall ( http://www.speacock.net/gallery/album91/2006_Mar_11_Winchester_Mystery_House_05_short_steps) . so walking up to the storage room above was NUTS. when she died, all activity CEASED in that moment. so nails are half hammered in, etc. her storage room was stuff that was going to be put up. she had this spider window that i wanted. http://mysteryhouseguide.com/storage/post-images/photos/25K_1.jpeg

omfg. it's gorgeous. this room is worth about $50k today http://www.alamedainfo.com/Winchester_Mystery_House_San_Jose_California_$25,000_Stock_Room_of_Art_Doors_Windows_and_Fixtures.jpg

what's baffling is that she would receive $1,000 a day from her inheritance from her husband. TAX FREE. that'd be like getting over $20,000 A DAY in today's money. not to mention that when he died, she received over $20 million just from that, so she had money to burn. she was the best paying for house help, but she was also psychotically demanding on them. the going wage was almost a dollar a day for maids and the like. she paid $3.

this is a good site view. http://thejetpacker.com/what-is-the-mystery-behind-the-winchester-mansion/ you can no longer take pictures there, which is heart breaking.

i mean. you gotta love a woman obsessed with the number 13 (13 windows in one INSIDE room, 13 holes in sinks for drainage, a chandelier with originally 12 was altered to have another added, 13 coat hooks. SO MUCH RANDOM 13!!!)

there's a seance room that you can get into 3 ways, but there's only ONE way out. no door handles on the insides of the room. there's a room in the middle of the house and there are windows all on it, and it works with the windows in other rooms so there's natural light.

in another room, there's this STUNNING tiffany window, and when the light hits it, the entire room would be filled with rainbows. WOULD BE. since it doesn't ever catch the light, we didn't see it.

there is ONE shower. built for her height specifications. lolz.

there's a sealed off chimney that goes through 3 floors and stops two inches short of actually being functional. she HAD it done on purpose. she was nuts.

this is a really good virtual tour. http://mysteryhouseguide.com/mystery-house/

:D :D

YEEE!

California was awesome.

I went from 2/10 to 2/14. 2/12 was Tia's bebe shower. It was kind of all sorts of awesome. I mean, it was Halloween themed. HOLLAAAAH!

I got to meet her family, who I already felt like family with since I had been FB friends with Lea for a while now, and then Mia sees me as her favorite person. They're adorable. Travis (their little bro) is a blast too :)

We also went to the Winchester Mystery House, for which I nearly peed with glee.

GOT TO GO TO AN IN & OUT BURGER! Honestly, it was just fast food. But The Dude abides.

Hit up Santa Cruz, and took pix on the beach, and saw the roller coaster in "Lost Boys", along with the train tracks that weren't that scary, and I stuck my feet in the Pacific! HOORAY! Oh, and saw beach wang. LOL

I really had an amazing time. Ate toooo much and gained like, 4 pounds. But I had so much fun.

I can't wait to go back out. When Teenoo has Zee, I'll go out and be a slacker then and babysit some. Mush on her wee face. Ya know. The usual.

Of course, now that I went out to California, my mother has her friend Linda harassing me about going to Florida. Whatever. It costs MORE to go to Florida. The plane tickets are nearly the same price and since she has NO ROOM at her place, I'd have to stay at a hotel. Which is almost preferred. But whatever. Trisha & I have plans to do so at some point. But my cousin is a busy girl.

EEE!!!

I am going to San Jose for Tia's bebe shower! Words cannot adequately describe how squeeful I am about this.

I get to see mah teenoo AND AND AND hopefully April!! NOTHING ELSE BETTER GO WRONG, UNIVERSE!!!

I'll be there for about 4 days. It's been 70 during the day there, and 40 at night. HAHAHAH!! It hasn't been 40 here in weeks.

I can't wait.

AND I'M GOING TO A FUCKING IN AND OUT BURGER!

Shut the fuck up, Donnie.
synnoveaevael: (Go - Cat - you're going to die)
Eh, a month and a half later. Whatevah. Not like any of you really care about my boneyard pix.

Anyboo.

Angus took us to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, as our resident urban explorer. It was HOT AS FUCK. Jesus shit.

Teenoo has a huuuuge love of the Sleepy Hollowness, so off we went.

Mmhm. Boneyard. )

Hm.

The classic rock station has played like, 5 Stone Temple Pilot songs in a row. I'm not complaining, but I wish I could hear the TALK part of it well enough to figure out why.

I was going to update with stuff, but I realized I have a whole lot of nothing to say. The pix from Pennsic are officially downloaded and resized on my home computer. I have about 50 100!!! videos. YouTube is going to ban me. I have a lot of uploading to do later.

I also realized that I never posted the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery pix from when Tia came out. Suck.

Lots of things to do.
synnoveaevael: (Teh Minx.Trix2)
God.

It always starts with a lil' vodka.


Hence, never ends well... )

synnoveaevael: (WTF?)
Mah Cali Invasion is over. I have dropped them off at the airportage. :(


In non Cali news. I got a check in the mail from my insurance company for $720 for my surgery.

It said that they are paying $720. And I am responsible for the balance. $10,880.

Uhm.

I don't think so? I'm totally not even panicing cause I know I have a $2500 deductible. And I don't even know the assistant MD that sent in this claim.

Whatever. I will call Horizon tomorrow. I don't even know why I got a check. I don't know if I'm supposed to endorse it to this mythical doctor or what.

AYIEEE!!!

Tia posted some pix.

Here and here!!!
synnoveaevael: (Teh Minx.Trix2)
Part.. whatever.

So kids. What should we do TODAY!?!

How about git some pizza and go visit a cemetery?? That sounds like a BLAST.

Tia, Dave & Janete went to PA while I showered. A quick hop across the border.

Let's go!



Dead things Mikey, DEAD THINGS! )

So. Those are all the pix I have.

For the trip to Dave's mom's old house and the Sopranoland journey, I leave that to Tia to upload. Cause. I have none. :)

Holy shit.

synnoveaevael: (Teh Minx.Trix2)

synnoveaevael: (Teh Minx.Trix2)
Still Friday.

Not nearly as picture heavy.

COOOOULD be not work safe. My breasts refused to be held in by the corset. No nippleage though.

DID YOU SAY BREASTS!?! )
And that's all of Friday.

SATURDAY IS NEXT! Wait. You know what. There really aren't all that many of Saturday morning. FUCK IT!

*flits*

SATURDAY!
Liiiibertad )


Secaucus.



Okay. Saturday night will be done later. Or something. I'm tired.
synnoveaevael: (Teh Minx.Trix2)
Oh wait.

NO! They came to NEW JERSEY!

We were invaded.

Part 1 of JESUS CHRIST 515 pix Squish took.

So, this is Friday. I have no pix of Thursday. We didn't do much but sleep. And eat. And sleep. And watch movies. Cause we were fucking TIRED. Jesus.

So, this is Friday during the afternoon.

*kiss*

Shit my boyfriend does to make sure I look at him or something ;)


NOT dial up friendly )

Okay. That's that.

Next, is Q's. Same night.
synnoveaevael: (Hi kittie)
So, I should update properly.

As you all know, Tia & Dave were out here these past few days. Annnd it was a blast. They're coming out again in the spring.

A small list of what we did for the truly curious: Vegged, watched tv, went to NYC, went to the Alex Grey CoSM, went to the Empire State Building, went to Grey's Papaya, went to 1,000 StarBucks, saw some Sopranos points, saw where Dave's mom grew up, had a party, went to Q's, had real diner food, went to White Castle (this amused them thusly), went to Liberty State Park, Tia & Dave set foot in PA, went to a really old cemetery with an abandoned church on the lot (verrryy groovie), and. Well. Other things. Lots o' pix.

We have our wicked ways of drawing people back. That and the fact that the flight from San Fran to Newark is MAAAAD cheap helps.

I'll update that when I have time to upload the pictures. I find my event updates are largely uncommented upon without pictures. Pictures are way more fun to look at than my drivel.

I am exhausted. Like, truly shot. I was sorta sick before the Cali Invasion, and while I did not get sickER, I am not feeling well. I slept like ass at Janete's for several reasons, and my skin decided to revolt.

And it'd been looking so nice. My body did not agree with the water out there. *sigh* So, my face is hurting me, and while it is getting better cause I assaulted it with things to make it happy, it is still hurting.

I am still kinda really super flattered about this cause I'm a dork.

Since we went to the Alex Grey exhibit, I was looking up his stuff online. I realized his daughter Zena looked familiar and figured out she was in one of the two Law and Order's I've watched willingly. I haven't seen anything else she was in though.

I've added to my desk, a picture of all of us taken at the Empire State Building and a small postcard print of Bardo Being because I loved it. The blending of colors is just perfect. I know, me, colors. The idea is appalling.

I got my tarot cards read the other night. I hadn't had that done in a long while. Some things that were said I cannot change. And it saddens me.

Then some things were confirmed.

Cryptic? Perhaps. But time will tell. She always does. She can't keep a secret forever, no matter how hard she tries.

Unrelated, I also found out something that while it didn't shock me to my core, I was rather saddened to hear it. People are so selfish and stupid sometimes. I hope that situation works out for the best.

My grandpa is back in the hospital. I love how my mother called me FRIDAY to let me know when it happened. Oh wait. She didn't call me. She didn't even MENTION it in her email to me today.

So I gave my cell number to my aunt. Told her when things like these happen to let me know. Cause my mom clearly doesn't give a shit if I know. Upsets me.

Given since I'm not feeling well, I can't go see him. His white blood cell count dropped. He's weak. This is only after two sessions. So, I worry. Especially since I can't go to see him. I mean, I might have just an annoying lingering "thing", but he's supposed to wear a mask just walking around the hospital. *sigh* Have I mentioned I HATE cancer? I feel like it still hasn't hit me that he has cancer. I feel like some part of me thinks that this is just part of his heart surgery, this "recovery".

My aunt is going down to see my cousin this week. I'll get to see her soon, so I'm happy about that. Christmas, that is. My mother was supposed to go with her, but *gasp* flaked out at the last moment using my stepfather as an excuse. As in, he's going on yet another job interview that will pan out to nothing.

She apparently threatened to leave him. I don't believe her, but it's nice to know sometimes she has some fire reminiscent of her old self.

*SNEEZE*

I hate sneezing.

Tonight, I'm going to watch that new show, "3 lbs". And spend some quality time on the couch.

Upload some pictures. I've got Cloisters up, and Maryland up, but I haven't posted them, so don't go scouring for friggin' posts you think you've missed. Cause I'm lazy.

Next to upload is Kim's party. Then the Cali Invasion. There are about 500 pix of that. Hahahahahah. 500. HAHAHAHAHA. Just from Squish's camera. Tia has 500 more. That's 1,000 pix taken in like, 4.5 days. We are teh awesome.

Anyrate. Yar. I need to go to the city cause I have a Metro Card to abuse. Lame reason, but it works for me. I just don't have much time.

I'm having a birthday party for Archie on December 2nd. Prolly at my house. I haven't decided if it will be themed or not. I need to make up Evites.

I love the show Heroes. Every week it pisses me off that I have to wait another week to watch the next episode. Excellent writing and acting. Well, in my speshul lil' opinion.

This turned out a lot longer than I thought it'd be.
