Dear Public Diary & Friends:

from my flickr set Bastrop '05


Whew! Life, man. I know, right? F’serious. It’s krazazay.

It’s been awhile since I whined about it publicly. Jkjkjk. I do that all the time, with Twitter and Facebook and other futuristic forms of communication. I have sorely neglected this blog thing.

I used to post on the regular. In fact, I just went through and read my old LiveJournal posts (‘member LiveJournal? Didn’t think so…) Oh, me. I was such a bebe. A cute bebe! I also imported all of my silly old posts to THIS blog, for your convenience as well as my own.
Happy archive-trolling! (There’s even a post from ’05. Holy hasenpfeffer!)

Sincerely. Yours. ForEVAR.

PS: I also updated my blogroll to include some Mighty Fine Bloggery that I read religiously: my dear buddy Louisa Lee’s new heartbreaking, amaxxxing design blogchute (soon to be featured on Chronique) and the ever-jocular and fabulous, many-talent-hat-wearin’ Kate Getty’s new blog-bounce-machine. Gopherit. RSS it. You know you want to.


emulsion of work & living May 21, 2007

Filed under: aaron,family,fotos,friends,jason,the office — slova @ 4:02 am

this past week was great. 

i took wednesday off of work so that i could spend it with aaron. i slept in late, we got breakfast, went to the museum, to the movies, i scrubbed my bathroom and cleaned my house. it was a really great day. if i could have a week off in the middle of the week every week i don’t think i would ever complain again. thursday night i went out to claypit for jen biundo’s birthday. i met some new people, and more importantly, filled myself full of delicious indian seafood.

it’s been really hard to find a balance with work and a social life because i’m just so damned exhausted after work. not to mention finding time to exercise and take care of my house and personal projects.  it’s mostly a matter of me needing to make a very concerted effort.  i need to work more on things that matter to me outside of the 8-5 before i go mad.  it’s hard to work 40 plus and try to finish school and get anywhere, but aaron and ron talked me down when i played with the idea of slowly moving out of my position. 

friday night i went to jen brown’s bye-bye boobie party. she had boobie-shaped cupcakes, balloons, everything.

i was supposed to meet louisa after she got off of work at 8, but when i got there (by bus) she told me she wouldn’t be getting off until 11 at the earliest, but would meet me there. she never showed up since she didn’t have her ID on her, but the night was saved since i got to hang out with my new found friend crystal. she’s a dollface.

saturday i dropped in on my grandmother’s house and saw the ginormous house she lives in (3 stories!). we made lambchops, potatoes and corn on the cob together and ate it outside. she was adamant that i eat ice cream. and talked non-stop about how happy my brother was to get the afghan she made him (“purple and yellow! it’s what he wanted!”).

 this week i will:

  1. clean out my car

  2. go to the gym often

  3. play outside

  4. call my mom

  5. hunt for my future bike

  6. get my sewing machine fixed

i came home to find this drawing from aaron on the floor. he said i could have it. i love him. i love bear skulls.

do not steal this picture or i kill you and aaron kills you. or you give us money. then we don’t kill you.

oh, and i forgot to show everyone the picture an artist drew for us in exchange for a “trade” of a decorated change purse (cursive “bad motherfucker” and “forever starts now GIIIIRL”) that we threw organic substances (leaves, dirt) and change (nickels, pennies) into. what a bargain.

louisa & i = skeletor.


what am i? chopped liver? April 2, 2007

no one invited me for passover this year! i’m serious! i’m seriously upset! (i am, however, stocked up on matzos.) i will go to the gym and work out – i’ll represent my people at the gym.

also, for anyone who thinks i was being a heartless bitch, i did go ahead and call my dad that night to let him know that grandma was indeed out of the hospital and at home (right next door). i come from such high strung people, man.

this free movie thing is awesome. we watched spike lee’s when the levee broke yesterday. very good. highly depressing. i’ll get used to this new schedule. i still get aaron on monday and tuesday nights. plus, way more opportunities for girls night on fridays and saturdays, eh?

i am getting a bunny.

i’m so behind. i am not going to be able to catch everyone up on everything. i’m working lots, procrastinating in my studies, and having fun.

i uploaded some photos from a couple of months ago:

love all of you. send me love letters.

mucho besos y queso.


meh + feh + poo February 22, 2007

i just found out that my old friend is engaged.

i feel sick.

and i feel weird for feeling sick about it. emotionally and physically sick even though we’ve been out of touch for a long time. the forefront of my brain says i’m not jealous, but these signs tell me my frontal ain’t working properly. but jealous of WHAT? i wouldn’t want to marry him, and i am more than ok with not being married. so it’s not that, that’s icky.

maybe it isn’t jealousy. maybe it’s the finality of things that makes me feel awful.

i tried not to be snarky when i found out, but my response was simply, “mazel tov! when? how exciting and settled.”

i actually said settled. what is my problem? i am so rude. but i’m annoyed!

why do people have to grow up? and change? why am i so horrid about keeping in touch with people?

i am in a bad mood right now.
