Those Who Do Not Comment Will Not Be Considered.


 As of June 4, 2009, this journal is friends only. 

 Far too many people were friending me without my consent despite the clearly posted friending policy at the top of my journal. Now that's not to say that I'm anti-friend or anything (why would I even be on LJ if I was), but I like to be shown common courtesy.

 I am not exceptionally selective about who I allow to friend me. If we have just one major common interest and that one is a big one for both of us, than we'll probably get along fine. :) Just respect my unshared interests, and I'll respect yours.

Just make sure that you comment on this post to ask me first. 

I'll most likely add you as I love getting new LJ friends. :)

 HIATUS

As of right now, this journal is on hiatus with the unfortunate potential to be shut down entirely. I am currently going through some extremely difficult personal issues right now, and until I get myself sorted out, I will not be posting on this journal. I may occasionally find the time to comment on f-list posts, but it is not guaranteed. And it is also quite possible, depending on how the future unfolds, that I may shut down this l.j. entirely and start a fresh. Whatever I end up deciding, know that there will definitely be a post on the issue at the top of this journal when the time comes.

Until that time, I bid thee all well!

-Lauren

I'm sorry all.

I really intended to have a nice-sized update posted by last SUNDAY evening, but I just couldn't find time! 

I don't know what it is with me lately! I have lots of things I could post about, but I can never get the words out quickly enough. (I get limited computer time. ) 

But anyway, I WILL be making more of an effort to get something of length up by the end of THIS weekend.

8 Character Questions Meme

 

Lois Lane

 

01. Do you like this character?

 

  Heck, yeah! :D I don't just like her, I love her to pieces! ♥

She's been a favorite of mine since early childhood. :) I admire how comfortable she is with who she is.

She's at home in her own skin. She's not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and she's fully aware of it.

She's confident yet vulnerable, witty, tough yet feminine, feisty,  perceptive, loyal, has a well-meaning  heart....I could go on and on.

 

 

02. What name's do you call this character?

 

  Um, just Lois.

 

 

03. What image/color do you associate with the character?

 

  Wild Cherries and their bright red color are definite LL symbols. I also associate her with that other famous Superman color, blue. Lois always looks stunning in blue! :) Although she's had some pretty stellar pink shirts on before...and then there was that gorgeous wine colored dress that she wore in this  promo:

 




 

...honestly, any color that's ever looked great on Erica (translation:almost all colors in the spectrum) will make me think Lois if I focus on it long enough, lol.

 

 

04. What image/song do you associate with this character?

 

  ANYTHING by Whitesnake=Lois. ;)Though Kelly Clarkson’s “Miss Independent”, and Pink’s “Please Don’t Leave Me” really scream Lois to me, too.

 

 

05. What blood-type do you think this character is?

 

  Have no idea. I don't even remember what my own type is off the top of my head, I’m afraid.  

 

 

06. Of all of the titles that this character appears in, what character do you like to put this character with?

 

   Only one man will *really* do for Lois: Clark Kent a.k.a. Superman. :)

I know he can be a real dumbass at times and that alot of die-hard Lois Lane fans would

rather pair her up with Bruce or Ollie. But for me, there will never be anyone for Lois Lane

except Clark Kent. They’re so opposite and yet so alike at the same time. They shouldn’t make any sense and yet they make perfect sense. They go (in Smallville) from enemies, to friends, to partners, to best friends, and soon, to lovers. And in the comics, they’re now married.  In any universe, they compliment each other perfectly.

 

07. What would you want to say to this character?

 

  “Lois, I’d tell you that you’re awesome, but I’m sure you’re already fully aware of it.” ; )

 

 

08. What do you want to do with this character?

 

  Get her together with Clark? :D

 

Hmm, you mean what I’d want to do as an outing with her? I’d love to get her to take me to whatever stores she gets her amazing wardrobe from! And then we could go out for lunch and maybe do some Joan Jett karaoke. ;) 

   If you mean like what I'd want to do with her storyline-wise? I'd like for Erica to be in at least TWENTY episodes per season instead of the piddling 12-13 she gets now ( >:(  ) so more could be done with Lois. I want to see more of her ace reporting skills and more friendship time with Clark. And eventually, I want for her and Clark to be together as a couple. : )


09. Please choose 5 friends with your choice of character.

 

  Anyone that comments can just ask and I'll give them a character to do if they want. :)

  I'm way too tired to post a real entry right now, but I wanted everyone to know that I'm still here and to expect a nice, semi-lengthy update entry by Sunday evening. :) 

  I've been caught up in lots of things this week, and I haven't been given much computer time my family on top of it. As a result, I've been most lax in my comments on the f-list entries. I apologize for that. I hope to be all caught up with you each by the end of the weekend.

   Until then, goodnight!

*grrrrrrrrr*

Well, thanks in part to my dearest mother, my weekend has been shot to Hell before it even begins. 

 My grandmother had to have surgery today (nothing major), and her doctor said that after she comes home from the hospital tomorrow, someone will have to stay with her a couple of days "just in case". It's standard recommendation after any surgery to have someone nearby in case of emergency. And guess who was volunteered by their mother without their consent to be the senior-citizen-sitter? >: (

  Now, I know that last comment probably made me sound like a spoiled, annoyed teenager whose being a jerk about helping a sweet, old lady. So let me give you all the background facts on my grandmother and myself.....

  I have never liked this grandmother. I know that sounds horrible, but it's true. I love her, of course, because she IS my grandmother and because I know she loves me and means well. However, she irritates the life out of me, and I know full well that I am not her favorite grandchild by any means. She gets on my nerves because she acts like a child. Seriously. She is not intelligent, she's highly immature in her thinking in fact, she's self-centered, and she's obstinate. And I don't mean that in a youth-condescending-to-a-senile-old-person way. My mother, and my father when he was alive, would both vouch to that.  She means well, and she's always been pretty good to me and my siblings, but she really drives most people insane! Now, I can be perfectly civil with her and tolerate the whole situation just fine when it's only one of our usual dinner visits. But staying in that house for a whole TWO NIGHTS?! 

  I have to be there from around 3 tomorrow afternoon until early sunday morning, and it's going to be miserable. Not only because of my issues with her personally because she'll (hopefully) sleep most of the time, my grandmother's house is FILTHY. Going along with her lack of intelligence, she has no conception of cleanliness. NONE! The house is ceiling to floor, wall to wall, every single room dust and grime and dried up clumps of things. Plus, it's all cluttered because she NEVER THROWS ANYTHING OUT! This extends to food, also. I've never known to her to have milk in the fridge that wasn't expired and sour, and I have actually watched her eat moldy dinner rolls. Her explanation? "A little won't hurt you; it's where they get penicillin from." Whacked, I tell you, the woman is whacked! 

  So, obviously, I'll be packing my own food supply to take.

  Then, there's also the issue of sleep. I won't be getting a wink of it. I won't get any sleep because for one, as I said, it's dirty over there and therefore, I won't want to lay down on anything. And second, it's a strange,smelly place with no electric fans. I really don't sleep well if at all without one. I need the white noise of an electric fan to sleep well. 

   Now, the last, and least major, problem is going to be the boredom. There is no computer at her house, so I'll be absent from LJ until Sunday afternoon/Monday morning at which point, I promise to try and catch up on all of my f-list entries.

   Thankfully, she does have a lovely television and DVD player, so I'm going to bring some DVDs to try and alleviate the boredom and general unpleasantness. I'm thinking I'll bring along Seasons 1 and 3 of House, Seasons 1-2 of The X-Files, and probably a few other DVDs. I'm going out tonight to buy a set or two of something new. I might get the first season or two of How I Met Your Mother or the first season to Lois & Clark:The New Adventures, whichever catches my eye. Scooby-Doo is also a buying option. Not joking. I've been watching reruns lately, and I LOVE that cartoon! :D 

  But anyway, I just wanted to vent and let you all know why I'm not commenting on your entries this weekend. I'll be catching up as soon as I get back though, so don't worry. :) Also, any good wishes and prayers offered for a tolerable weekend would be greatly appreciated. :)

See you all later!

   Well, after nearly TWO WEEKS of tinkering, I’ve FINALLY gotten that lengthy weekend update entry that LJ lost a chunk of  fixed and ready to post. I know some might think it a bit silly to post an update entry for events which aren’t so fresh anymore, but after working so hard on it TWICE, I couldn’t not post it. Plus, I think it’s a fairly interesting entry unlike many of my others.  So here it is, FINALLY, my weekend update entry for March 21-22.


   

   I'm trying out a little something new  with this entry that I think will help me increase my posting regularity. I'm now doing numbered lists for general LJ updates. I've been wanting do this ever since it occurred to me how much I love the easy-readable-ness (yes, I know, NOT a word) of  [info]fiddlings   entrys.  I’m kind of obsessive-compulsive about things being all neat and tidy with regards to the written word, and it’s always acted as an unfortunate preventative when it comes to LJ posting. If I type something up and it comes off as out-of-synch and jumbled to me, well, then I just don’t want to post it for the world to see! I’m hoping that  by utilizing this new, more efficient and organized, list method, my entries may become as frequent as 3-5 week, if not in time, near to being daily. : )

 

So, let’s see how this goes:

 

1-  I should’ve done this AGES ago, but better late than never, right? ; )

 I’d like to welcome the following new members to my f-list:

2-  
I had the most wonderful time last weekend! ♥  On Saturday, we all went to my cousin Holly’s new house to visit for the first time.  It’s the first time that she and her husband, Rick, have owned a place of their own, so it’s a pretty big deal. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first because the outside didn’t look too specactacular. But after visiting, I am happy to report that my fears were ill-founded. Her house is just perfect for them! : ) It’s small but in a cozy way. The whole house is lovely, and I’m so happy for her to have such a nice place for herself now.

    
      Later that day, we went to a local antique store that I’d never visited before.  Now, I always knew that I had an interest in objects with history, unique pieces, collectibles, but I never realized just how ridiculously happy I could be made simply by wandering through a huge store full of such things! They had beautiful old books, stacks of pristinely preserved old comics, TONS of collectible stuff from various movies, shows, cartoons, etc., beautiful art and furniture….if I’d had the money, I could’ve easily bought out half the store. : ) Speaking of which, no one knows how much it KILLED me to not have more than a hundred dollars to my name at the time because I found THE desk! The desk I’ve always wanted! It was a lovely little slant top desk made of walnut wood.  It was so, so perfect! I couldn’t afford it though. : ( It is possible though that  it’ll still be there this month when I go back. If it is, I am definitely buying it. I need a desk, and this one, on top of being my ideal, would fit just right underneath my window.

     
Anyway, I concluded that wonderful day with a quiet night on the computer snagging up some GORGEOUS Disney icons courtesy of [info]anakaliaandrea and [info]kiaras_icon .  It was like the best day ever!    : D
 

      
3- Sunday was very nice too though not quite on the level of Saturday. : )  I  missed church because my mum needed to sleep in after cleaning up vomit the previous night (my little sister got sick).  But then my best friend and I got to have an afternoon out to lunch and a movie. We ate at T.G.I. Fridays, a restaurant to which I'd never been. It was delicious! : D  I had a large burger with fries. Simple, but it made me happy. Then we went to see a movie. We saw Watchmen. More on that later this week. I'll post a review after I've had time to collect my thoughts better. My reaction is kind of hard to articulate right now.

    What I will say right now regarding my movie visit is that there were some very appealing previews which pleased me. : )  I now have 3 movies to add to my "to-see" list for the coming months: Terminator:Salvation (I've never seen any Terminator movies in my life, but the preview looked cool, it stars Christian Bale, and one of the Nolans worked on the screenplay.It can't be too bad!), Star Trek (I'm a long-time Trekker, and even though I have a feeling that this will be NOTHING like actual Star Trek, it's my duty as a fan to give it a whirl. And the preview actually looked tolerable, so who knows, maybe it'll be decent.), and Public Enemies (Johnny Depp! Christian Bale! One Movie!!! Johnny Depp and Christian Bale IN THE SAME MOVIE!!!!! They're both two of my favorite actors if you can't tell. And before you go assuming I'm a sex-crazed fangirl, let's make something clear: I  admire them for their talent, not their looks. Though the looks don't hurt a bit. ;)  Plus, it's based off of real history, and 20's history to boot! I love the 20s. So I'll most definitely try to get to see this one. )  Also, I want to go and see the new Pixar movie, Up, but I already knew before the previews todat that I wanted to see it. My family always goes to the movies for the newest Pixar release. :)  


4- My most listened to songs tonight? "Hallelujah" by Rufus Wainwright, "Hot 'n Cold" by Katy Perry, "
Boston" by Augustana, and "My Life Would Suck Without You"  by Kelly Clarkson. No real reason to put that in here. I just felt like it. :D

5- Having been inspired by [info]fiddlings   on yet another count, I'm also going to start a new thing to try and get to know my f-list better. At the end of each entry, I'm going to post one question, maybe simple, maybe not, for you all to answer. :)  

Here's the first one:
