you may not always get what you want...


is it wrong to link your own posts?

i'm just assuming you read the dear universe blog entry. I'm assuming this because you're here reading this and if not you'll click the link in the title. Seriously it's in the title. Okay fine, lazy fuckers.

anyway you are aware that my birthday kind of sucked ass. but it didn't. i just didn't get what i wanted. i got what i needed.

well okay the cramps were uncalled for.

i got xavier rudd's solace cd from my friend ls. it's really sweet and beautiful. his live album is more... hrm raw? intense? but not necessarily better. this one grows more slowly but is still wonderful. oh lord 'no woman no cry' by him is so sad.

it's hard to get to that space with cachaito on the stereo. it's so cheery you see. othercat i'm in love with this cd by the way. When I get paid in like October you have to tell me where to buy it!

damm i'm high from climbing. There's something about a good old toss your body at a wall and keep going until it will be hard to hold the gearshift that's just endorphin rushing. also i'm high from the joint in my mouth [hi mom, if you're reading this just pretend the last sentence never existed]{I don't think I told my mother about my blog but i do read it at her house and i tell everyone about it. i haven't told her the url though. anyway i don't mind my parents knowing what i do}

i got some safety pointers that i think are relevant and others that are mostly just habits from a place with a different structure. i find it interesting that the longer someone climbs for the more they slow down with tying knots and checking buckles and so on. i think it's a function of climbing outside or something. i'm pretty careful but around people that have been at it for a while i'm really not as slow as they are. funny because that's also true on the walls.

thoughtful pause.

okay track five one more time and then some xavier.

blogging and internetting to music is better than television. however i need to get a tablet.

yeah so my birthday. [the preceding stream of consciousness brought to you by the evil weed!] i got to go for a swim with my mom and have fantastic food. i hung with my dad a little. i read a fantastic book. i drank irish (yes othercat brought the tyrconnell and i brought the red breast) with my sister and my best friend. i had a blizzard for lunch. also baked alaska TWICE at the farm... mmm such food lately.

and then there was brunch and a nice mellow party and a great wedding and just general celebratory times for days on end and i'm happy as a clam. i had cake for lunch today with pie on the side. it was great. yesterday i had a great egg thing and then three of us split french toast for dessert. with CARAMELIZED BANANAS and proper maple syrup. *foodgasm!*

anyway i guess the thing is that i didn't get any of the shit that i demanded from the universe that day and yet i'm getting calls for work out of the blue and having dates with multiple people which weird. no weird. i don't do that.

like i meet someone and i date them once or a hundred times and then i move on or i stay for awhile. obviously not forever or i wouldn't be single right now but still i'm like serial monogomy girl. but suddenly i'm going climbing with one guy and taking another one out for sushi. that's sort of unexpected. seriously universe you crack me up. i haven't done crap in like two years and now this? what have you done to my boring and resentful existence?

I know I'm not resentful by the way.

Really I have shit all to say today and I got three hours sleep. Night.

But yeah to anyone asking? I had a great birthday and I'm glad the day itself was a touch maudlin. Sometimes you need that.

there are definitely those moments where getting what you want is not necessarily what you need...and when you get what you need you realize that it's the best thing at the moment for you. i'm glad you had an awesome birthday. we all deserve a little down time now and then :)

Sass - I am duly sorry.
I love you.
Please see my comments for deep seeded groveling.

have to go, wanted to say that.

no need for deep seated grovelling but i did appreciate it :)

and i think anyone wearing pants that are two sizes too small looks ridiculous regardless of what size they started out at!

But if you try sometimes you might find
You get what you need.

Funny how birthdays work. I've been jonesing for stuff for myself for YEARS, I always end up with what I don't really want. Socks, boxers and shirts? Yeah, they'd come in handy but they're nothing you go "f'ing wow" over.

Look at the good side, you didn't have to cook your own birthday dinner (like me) and you were invited to your own party! Work had a cake for me, the person who organized it sent the email invite to the WRONG address (it went to someone with rick for a last nane, she hit the first thing that appeared in an ldap search).

oh castu that sucks dude. i do need socks though... it's cause i like the silly ones and they wear out faster.

I'll send you some of my spare socks. :D Considering how often I wear them now I have enough to last a generation.

Today I work a really nice shirt, khakis and Birks. One person noticed, odd, since I lost the toenail on my right foot (again) and it looks sort of odd. Maybe time for toerings.

cast seriously how do you keep losing toenails?

i've lost one in like 15 years and let me tell you i didn't like it!

i gotta get some birk type sandals... though i think i like the ones lance recommends more...

hrm weird not using a nick for someone...

I think I put too much pressure on them. Lost one at GP2K4 last September, lost one in July while skating.

Birks (or clones) rule. I thought they were uncomfy at first, now they're a dream. I need to replace 'em, one has a problem in the sole. Only 14 years old. :D

Enjoy the festival.
