Good morning! Welcome new friends! I thought I’d take advantage of the recent friending meme and indulge in some house-keeping stuffs.[Poll #1750629]

4. Please know that every day is de-friending amnesty here. If you decide this place isn’t for you, that’s alright. I’ll be sorry to see you go but there won’t be any hard feelings or drama. In addition, I occasionally make flist cuts of my own. Mostly people from former fandoms I don’t talk to anymore. I might have made cuts in error (click-happy, wot?) so feel free to PM if you think there’s been a mistake.

5. I like being comfortable in my space and knowing that people are here because they enjoy my company. I like honest yet polite communication and appreciate healthy, respectful debate. We might not always agree but my journal is a safe space where everyone is welcome to express their opinions and share their thoughts.

And that’s all she wrote! That wasn’t too bad, was it?

eta. why can't you edit polls? I thought of another game! Dropwords. And, I really do know how to spell David's name.

I'm rather tired and low today. It's a combination of lots of things, including missing JJ something fierce and my stupid back hurting because I picked up a box that was too heavy (counting down to the chiro appointment at 11am). So...time for a good things list!

♥ Obviously, the first and most amazing! Go NY! I'm so fucking happy you've proved me wrong.

♥ The lovely [ profile] hermette has a pretty party going on. Go and play! Enjoy the preeeeety!

♥  I've been meaning to share this video for a while but can't figure out how to embed it. Anyway, I think it's one of the most beautiful, hopeful and heartwarming things I've seen in a while. Wes and Mark's wedding

♥ My Red Sox are making me obscenely happy. Long way to go and all that but damn, they're happy making. 

♥ There is the prospect of having the house to myself for awhile today. It's sad that this gets me so excited but, well, it does. I can't wait!

♥ Cooking shall be mine today! Yes, it shall! There will be chicken curry, brussel sprouts and peanut butter cookies. Maybe more!

Alright, I'm going to go do some stretching, get ready for the chiro and, most importantly, try to keep focusing on the positive. What's your good things for today?  <3
inspiredlife: (books are the perfect company)
One of the big projects for today is to pack up all my books. Some of them are going into storage and a small select few are going with me to Prague. But the majority of them are being donated. It's kinda breaking my heart. I know I can find these books again, either in physical copies or simply for my kindle. But, well, I guess I'm pretty attached to my books. Reading was always an escape for me during my childhood and, in many ways, it still is.

In the past hour my copy of The People's History of the United States has transported me back to Sr. Nelson, who was the fiercest teacher I've ever had but also flipped my world upside down in the best possible way. My battered copy of Living with HIV brought back so very memories, some of the worst times of my life but also some of the most brilliant. That William Carlos Williams collection reminded me of a lost friend and the knowledge that you can learn from past mistakes and save a friendship on the brink. In the Complete Works of Shakespeare I found a love letter I'd tucked in there for safe-keeping; it was from a long-lost love but a lovely thing to come upon.  

And, silly as it may sound, I'm not ready to put some of these books into the donation pile. But, I can't keep them all either. So, I'd like to propose an exchange, if you'd like a book, I'd be happy to send you one. In exchange, i ask for a letter - it can be an actual letter, a postcard, a two-liner card; just something that reminds me that my books have gone to a good home. Does that sound reasonable? 
If you'd like to play, comment! I'll list some genres you can choose from and then we can discuss specifics. I'm not screening comments so I'll sort address questions out later. EVERYONE is welcome to play, as long as you don't mind giving me your address.  :) 
Genres:  history, biographies, textbooks (american history, lit. and a some education), teaching guides/resources, poetry, children's books and a bunch random novels. 

eta: one thing, if i'll be seeing you during our road trip of d00m, you'll be getting your book then.  <3

Good morning, lovelies! Welcome new friends! I have an [Poll #1670997]
inspiredlife: (keep me company?)
To answer the question from my last post, no, this day isn't ever going to end. I left work around 5:30, talked to the girl for a bit, ate a slice of bbq chicken pizza and was back to work by 7:30. Think I have a long night ahead of me. Either that or I work more than planned this weekend. Neither seems appealing. :(

However, I did just have a rather amusing conversation with a mate (though, please note, good sir, that it wasn't the conversation i intended to have with you). And, i have good music playing. Also, the rumour that my bloody mary mix actually has vodka in it might be true (unlike most mornings when i can be seen chugging it).  

But, sadly, working late means that I haven't been able to watch all the fantastic (one assumes) music vids y'all linked to in my earlier post. Nor can I reciprocate. I'll get to it this weekend, lovelies!

In the meantime, I'm bored! And apparently super spammy and needy today. But, entertain me?  Tell me a joke, a secret, two truths and lie? Play shag, marry, cliff? Send me a text? Gimme something to keep going through this mountain of paperwork and i'll give back as good as i get. <3

eta:  also, things i need, part 589583627: an icon of my boy Cols and "IL's pretend boyfriend"

eta2: things i need, part 398472873 (yes, i know it's out of order): help with a mood theme. six years in, i figure it's time to get one.

eta3: 11:04pm and i'm finally leaving my office. Walking the mile home and crashing. catch y'all on the flip side where, if you're willing, i'll definitely need more fun and games to keep me going! <3
