Category Archives: Boys are pretty

From the annals of my photo library

I haven’t been sleeping well, so I don’t have a lot of energy right now to make a post. HOWEVER. Tonight I went swimming and watched a baseball game (on tv) and thought about cute boys and how much I like cute boys…with pretty eyes…

BUT I DIGRESS.

Here are some things I found on my phone. I have another one to take at some point, of something HILARIOUS I saw this morning but I’m too lazy to go take a picture of it. DEAL WITH IT.

This is my phone wallpaper. I MISS YOU BUSTER.

My fortune from P.F. Changs

THIS JUST IN

Andres Torres is workin’ with some junk in his trunk.

Like, his ass got back to first before he did.

Everything I know I learned from Red Forman

Thanks to That ’70s Show, I envision this occurring when next I see Shark Boy:

SPARKLE PANTS: *leans in seductively, propping ample boobage on forearms*
SPARKLE PANTS: I’ve got a pair to beat a full house~

All I can do is keep breathing

At first it was good. Better than good. It was mind-numbingly euphoric. Tingles in my fingertips. A heady excitement that consumed me from top to bottom.

And now it is a wallowing valley of mire and shadeless shadows.

My bff shiraz

Twelve found an unopened bottle of two buck Chuck in the cupboard, so I have had some wine and I feel SO NICE YOU HAVE NO IDEA. I mean, my fingers are tingly and everything. Don’t judge, I HAD A BAD DAY.

And now my friend is all I WILL PAY FOR YOUR TRIP TO PORTLAND IF YOU COME SEE HOWIE DAY WITH ME and I can’t go because I’m waiting to hear about some jobs and I need to be available immediately.

Dear Howie,

If you’re reading this, pretty please announce some shows in northern California so I can see you again. It has been almost a year and that is not acceptable.

Love,
Sparkle Pants

P.S.
you have no idea how hard it is to type this post and put all the letters in the right plaaaace

Thanks, Chrome!

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR LOSING ALL THOSE TABS I HAD OPEN. THOSE TABS HELD UNTOLD RICHES AND…well, okay it was just a bunch of links for jobs I need to apply for, and I could probably duplicate the results by going back to Craigslist but UGH IT IS 11PM WHY DID YOU DO THIS TO MEEEEEEEEEEE?

I also lost a whole bunch of links about JOB INTERVIEWS and HOW NOT TO SUCK AT THEM. Sigh. Clearly I have a lot of first world problems. Why am I complaining about them when there are people halfway around the world being murdered for standing up for themselves? Because…I’m an American and it’s what we do. Glum.

This blog post just took a turn for the somber. The past week or so has shown me that I am really uneducated about some parts of the world. There are some areas that I know quite a bit about. Egypt is not one of those places. I posted a link on Facebook yesterday that was how to avoid saying stupid things about Egypt. There was something on it about how fierce Egyptian women are and have been throughout their history. I…I want to know more about that. I need to know more about that.

On a completely unrelated and fluffier note, GO LOOK AT HOWIE GO GO GO. Internets, did I ever tell you about the time I met Howie? I KNOW RIGHT? After all these years, I finally met him. And you’ll be glad to know that we parted ways unscathed. It’s a miracle.

Just because it’s not doesn’t mean…?

Okay. So I really haven’t done anything I meant to do here with regard to Rwanda. And I won’t, at least consistently, so don’t think about expecting to see it now that I’m making THIS post, which really has very little to do with Rwanda and very much to do with the fact that I can’t sleep.

The past few weeks have been flooded with…stuff. At least on my radar. People being extra mean, extra insensitive. The world being extra fucked up. It seems like everyday I wake up and there’s a new battle to wage, a new thing to defend myself from, a new thing to protect the people I love from. So on and so forth. There are more misunderstandings, more deaths, more nitpicking and irritation.

I mean, Obama won the election. Where is my fluffy kitten that poops rainbows?? Isn’t that what he promised?

Right now, at this moment, I am hungry and in awe of how soft my hair feels. I’m not sure why it feels so soft, but I know I have to stop touching it because it’s just going to get dirty faster. I’d eat something but there’s not really anything interesting to eat in the house.

I have a paper due on Wednesday in my class. I’m pretty sure I’ll get it done in time, so that’s not really what’s bothering me tonight. Last night, I think that’s what was bothering me. I went to bed at 6am Sunday morning and woke up a little before 1pm. Now it’s 1am Monday morning and I have to be up at 6am. That’s amusing.

Okay, so I am actually a little sleepy. I feel like I COULD sleep, if I could convince myself to actually lie down and close my eyes. But something about that feels weird and worrisome. Why should it? There’s not really any reason. I will regret not going to sleep at 11:30 or so, when I initially got into bed. But one thing kept me awake, and then another, and then I realized that I felt kind of scared to go to sleep, or just a little anxious about it, but I don’t really know WHY.

You know what I miss? I miss being able to sit down and write. Write stories. Short snippets. I miss seeing these scenes play out in my head. I miss being able to turn them over and over in my mind and have them appear on the screen exactly as I saw them. I miss that. There’s not much that excites my brain right now. Not much inspires me, which is pretty sad. I know what it is I miss. And it isn’t a what. And I know that if I go there, for real someday, not just in my mind, nothing will have changed. And it will make me so angry at myself. See, I don’t think I can actually do it and not have anything change. Nothing will, because some things have and those things that have changed now make it impossible for any of the other things to change. Back to the start, just like always.

Lately, I’ve found myself wishing I could be like Hannah Montana and have the best of both worlds. Only my worlds wouldn’t be different personae. It’d be different people. The two of them, each to serve his purpose.

But like I said, everything has changed now. One ruined the path we could’ve taken together and the other..well, he didn’t do anything, did he? And I ran away, and I ended up here, which was probably for the better. That was him on the bus that afternoon. This all started then.

I am Milk

HI.

HI.

WHAT’S UP.

I’ve been really busy the past few days…weeks. Months. Years. Whatever. The election sucked up whatever time I once had and since Tuesday night, I’ve been doing homework and/or crying and/or still trying to convince people that Obama isn’t a Socialist. I just finished my second short story, which means I’ve finished more writing in the past two months than I have in a year. GO ME.

I have a lot to say on the election but given my mixed readership of 5 people, I’ll hold off for another day.

Okay, so I can’t embed this video because it only works if you view it on this page. It’s David Thewlis being awesome on KTLA. He looks incredibly hot.

I think that’s it for right now. I’m very tired and hungry and The Daily Show is on!

Putting my brain back together

THIS ALBUM. BUY IT.

Okay, it doesn’t like hotlinking. Whatever. It’s Ray LaMontagne’s new album, Gossip in the Grain.

The fact that there’s a song on it called “Meg White” about Meg White (with a spin on her tell-tale drumming) is a testament to the awesomeness of the album.

Also, 4chan. lolz

And! The international trailer for Half Blood Prince. FINALLY.

Can’t stop

Earlier tonight I noticed a place inside my mouth, you know, like I bit it really hard or something before? Well, I just realized I’ve been gnawing the hell out of that spot for the last few hours. It’s bleeding now. Oops.

Last night I dreamed I got this amazing loan that allowed me to sell my car, pay off the difference, and pay off my other debt and late bills. Oh dreams, why must you tease me so?

I also dreamed that I went home for a weekend and did laundry. So basically I dreamed about fixing about 60% of the things bothering me right now. AMAAAAZING.

But you know, it wasn’t a horrible weekend. Aside from the good dreams that became nightmares when I woke up, I got to watch all of Band of Brothers this weekend because it was on the History Channel. I love that show. I watch it whenever I notice that it’s on. Then I spend a few days or weeks obsessing over it. And then I go back to normalcy until it’s on again and the whole things starts all over. After you watch it the first few times, I think you earn a license to spend 85% of each successive viewing ogling the eye candy BAMFness that is Winters and Nixon (and Spiers). Amirite or amirite?

Also, I’m a little tired of some things. I just kind of want to wash my hands of…everything. Boy oh boy. I don’t know.

Putin crab approves of this post.
