Where do we go when we just don't know
And how do we relight the flame when it's cold
Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing
And when will we learn to control

Which Sexual Outercourse Act Are You? (with pictures)
brought to you by Quizilla

I made with the mad loot, yo. My three favouritest gifts are a dolphin table, a model lego, and a sweater that I apparently look good in, but I think better matches my girlfriends eyes. ;) (and why she got it!) I got a neat dragon statue (think Japanese dragon..it almost needs a Sinfest quote above it), some more legos, another dolphin figurine (pretty..it's all shimmery purpleblue), and a cheesey neck massager.

Spend some time with the family, good stuff. Interesting how all the cousins are slowly moving far far away. Interestingly, I'm the one who is most likely to stay. I guess that would make more sense if I explained...but I don't know if I could. Anyways.

Family has been big on my mind lately, and all their vagaries. From how they will hurt you, to how they will succor you. I guess it's a part of my own internal buhness. Some of which I went through on Christmas Eve...

Which is why I was so determined to enjoy Christmas. I wish I could stop looking at the minutiae of my life and let things go, but I'm not any good at that. And Christmas is a time for reflection past, right? :)

I'm entirely to sleepy to discuss Christmas thoughts and traditions like I wanted to. Sorry. Maybe another time...or maybe not.

Missing and stuff

So my mum called me at Tina & Dale's on Christmas day, and near the end of the conversation she asked me if I get homesick. I knew what she was driving at, so I said "Yes", but it was a lie. I don't miss Indiana at all - miserable flat place with bloody snow and no easy beach access! I don't miss my family one whit ... not even my aunt Wendy or my grandma. I thought I'd miss them, but I don't. But I knew she wanted to hear that I did, so I said I did.

Later I was telling Scott that it feels like I came here to start an entirely new life, and that I have almost no connections to my life in the US anymore. Except for a few. I told him there's two things I actively miss -heaps-. The runner-up for the 2003 M's Most Missed Memories contest was watching Iron Chefs whilst babbling about it on IRC with Holden & Brawi and crew.

The winner? Playing pool with my Jeffy. Or, being able to always go over to your place when I needed to talk, bitch, rant, cry, whatever. (Or if I needed the best Mac&Cheese in the universe ... don't tell Scott! But he doesn't even follow the packet directions! *gasp*)

I miss you too. You were too huge of a part of my "previous" life to really let go.

(And of -course- I loved the T-shirt! How could you ever doubt?! Now if only I could get the full set, so I could kinda play Lunch Money!)

*hugs*

Re: Missing and stuff

Oh M. *sniffles* You make me all nostalgic.

*hugs tight* I miss the pool playin' myself. And of course I miss the shoulder time. Lord knows I used yours the same way. And of course Iron Chefs (remember the NY party?)

And you haven't let go of me. I prefer to think of it as relocated. Because someday, when you least expect it, I'll show up on your doorstep. 'Hey. I was in the neighberhood. Mind if I crash for a week at your place?'

And oh. A little link to keep you occupied: http://www.warehouse23.com/item.cgi?AG1100

Ooh! I don't know what a dolphin table is exactly, but it sounds SWEET.
daimones From: daimones Date: December 27th, 2003 11:51 am (UTC) (Link)
Think a dolphin sculpture with a glass table on the top of it. Coffee table height, glass table about a foot in diameter. If I ever get pictures of it, I'll post.

I want a digicam. ;)

musings

so i read your post and it made me sad and now that i have thought a bout it i supose i should start my own entry following this... but prolly not today.. i should cause i havent written but blah..

with your reflections of the year it made me look back to see what i had lost gained and left behind. this year on a whole has been the lonelyest year i can recall. everyone has left home old friends new friends even siblings. even my bf lives in a different state. this year too as i would roll things in my mind about people that had left my life my world shrank and became even emptier. I realized that i was only friends with people from highschool because we had been friends, not because we share anything in common anymore. in fact for most of these people i dont even really like the people they have become and though i still might see them once or twice a year over the holidays the meeting is empty and bears no meaning for me anymore. over the years i would have to say my relationships with my brother and sister have strengthened quite a bit, taking the place of other relationships that became non-functional. but seeing as even they are now 6 hours away its difficult to maintain that the way it was. maybe i just hate change. ok i prolly do and so this loss is something i am just contriving because things have changed and i am not adapting with them.

but i wanted to say this. you are so blest if you didnt already know this. you have people you can do things with. you have people you can talk to. you have a significant other that even lives in your own house. i supose those could be blessings or curses but they look like pretty good things from where im standing.

ok i cant even wrap this up well cause tahts i guess all i have to say .. that and i got a phone call and lost the train of thought.

*hugs*

Re: musings

All good points of blessedness, pixi. Sometimes it takes an outside point of view. ;)

I miss you, and I hope you have a great 2004. Maybe once I get all this cash I'm making stowed away, I'll take a trip out there to see my Gramma. Then you and Bri might have to put up with me. ;)

*hug* Merry Late Christmas, Jefe.
daimones From: daimones Date: December 28th, 2003 12:29 am (UTC) (Link)

OMG!

Go ahead. Steal it.

Miss you Cindy. Dunno where I'd put you, but I'd love to have you.

man, i so need to start paying more attention to your lj. i had no idea you were graduating in december - i totally thought it was may. sorry i didn't send any congrats cards, even virtually, but i didn't know. i went back to your entries from the 16th and 17th and found nothing particularly graduationny, so i felt a little better. :)
daimones From: daimones Date: December 29th, 2003 01:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Technically speaking, I suppose, it wasn't graduation. Just my last day of undergrad class work.

But thank you!
melydia From: melydia Date: December 29th, 2003 01:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
okay, so when is the graduation ceremony?
daimones From: daimones Date: December 29th, 2003 01:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
I have no idea. I think I opted out...:)...
