Looking up

I looked at myself in the mirror last night and thought that I didn't look too bad.

This either means that I've started visibly loosing weight again or my internal body image has updated again. At the moment I'm guessing a little bit of both.

I've been doing a hell of a lot of chatting via email of late with a certain young man from Canberra (towkarn meet my friends list, friends meet towkarn) and I'm feeling so much better about the world in general as a result.

I have plans to get rid of this huge pile of debt I'm under (short story: when I was younger I did stupid things with credit cards. Now that I'm older I'm having trouble getting rid of what I owe on those credit cards). Once I get paid twice more (so that I theoretically have three pay slips) I'm going to get a personal loan and pay off all my credit cards. I'm planning on taking out the loan for 5 years, but aiming to have it paid off in 2. Now that a solution is in sight I feel a lot more comfortable with my financial state.

I love my friends, work is fun and I seem to be actually getting things done.

Things are good. Thanks.

I'm a drug now? Usually people just tell me I'm on drugs... Or tell me they suspect I am, rather.

Well, it's the only way I can explain the silly smile on my face.

How about watching too much slapstick?

Oi! Are you saying I've been slapping too much stick?

I said nothing of the sort ^^ Oh, and thanks for showing me this Pendorwright.com site! I'm only on the second story and already fascinated by the entire thing! (I had to skip most of the first story... gratuitous sex scenes that include females don't really appeal to me)

I know, same here, but I find the universe is so fascinating that I'm willing to skip the sex scenes for the rest of the story.

The sex in the second story is rather more bearable, though I've been skipping bits of it.

I almost laughed myself sick when I read this line, though:
Her hands grasped my buttocks, and slowly her fingers crept closer to my anus, massaging it in tiny circles. I objected a little; I didn't enjoy that kind of stimulation.

Yay for good things, especially when they include cute boys! :)

However, like most cute boys he refuses to believe that he's cute. I'm working on it...

:) Ah yes, I hope that you'll manage to convince him, for it is true, he is cute. :)

Um... do I know you? How do you know I'm cute? D: Crap, another stalker?!

She was the gorgeous lady working behind the canteen for Pheno.

Oh! I do know her, then! Well, sort of.

Jul. 12th, 2007 10:10 am (UTC)
yep, you do. I'm Jen, the Mission Improv judge and canteen manageress from Pheno. Here's a pic

So, no worries, not another stalker!

I remember you, now! X3 I didn't recognise your userpic because of the hair colour, I think.
fred_bear
Jul. 12th, 2007 10:50 am (UTC)
Heh, would it freak you out if I told you that is my natural colour and it's just the lighting in the photo that makes it look red. And the no glasses thing wouldn't have helped as well.:)
towkarn
Jul. 12th, 2007 10:52 am (UTC)
Really? Must've been some very snazzy lights. o.O Or at least, very red ones... And yeah, the no glasses thing also had me confused.

Good luck with the finances! I hate dealing with large scale money stuff.

Also 2 things
1) come the gym with us
2) Come out tomorrow night, Kitty from Adelaide is across and looking to catch up with people

Ah, that reminds me: does the gym have any invite-a-friend specials? I have decided that I'm going to cancel my Fitness First membership (it's too far out of the way) and join the Brunswick City Baths instead.

I remember that Fitness First quite often had specials that if you got a friend to join you got a discount or reward of some sort, so I thought that since you're already a member, I might be able to help you.

Do I know Kitty from Adelaide? I have no idea. I'll probably come out anyway. Let me know the details.

Yeh come to Brunswick - that is where all the cool kids hang out

Kitty ran a Vampire Freeform at Conquest a few years ago, when Grat and Aaron first came over. Planning to get to Nemisis about 11ish I think (as I have to drive to Hamilton the following morning at 7.30)

A thought just occurred to me. You said to contact you about going to Nemesis for liftage and the like, but I don't actually have your contact details. I have your address and that's it.

If you don't want to post here (understandable) email me at random(at)randomevent(dot)net.

*hugs*

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
