Oh, all the things I've done...

First, I want to give a big HELLLLOOOOOO! to all of my new friends! *waves* Welcome! Hope I don't bore you to death. :) I heart new friends.

I don't know how much anyone pays attention to the tags on this journal (I tend to obsess over them), but you may or may not have noticed a tag labled great ideas. A recent conversation I had made me think about it, and subsequently inspired me to explain it.

Over the past year or so foreverseenstar and I have started cataloging some of our more outlandish antics into one of two mental lists entitled "Great Ideas" and "Great Ideas Which Turned Out To Be Not So Great After All". (The latter was atcually too long for an lj tag.) So here are some of the things I've put on these lists, not all of which involve foreverseenstar, which is probably better for her considering how long one of the lists is.

A few things on the "Great Ideas" list... inviting foreverseenstar to move in with me, playing hooky from work to spend the day in NYC, taking that summer photography course, getting a tattoo, locking my Twitter account, pledging Delta Sigma Pi, making my dad that collage for Father's Day, brainstorming an ad for the Honda Element, reading the Harry Potter novels, adopting a kitten (though when she is knocking things off my nightstand at 3AM I tend to think this might belong on the other list), getting a livejournal, driving to Boston in the middle of a blizzard to see Sugarcult, becoming a vegetarian, and buying a MacBook.

And on the "Great Ideas Which Turned Out To Be Not So Great After All" list (which really I would like to think isn't actually that much longer than the first list, just that the things on it are infinitely more entertaining)... getting chunky blonde highlights, taking two classes in one semester while working full time, driving to Dragon*Con, Spring Weekend 2003, Spring Weekend 2004, going to Best Buy at 5 AM the day after Thanksgiving (even though we're so doing it again this year), going to the gym after not eating all day, doing ten SoCo lime shots on New Years Eve, letting the dog run loose in hopes of attracting the attention of a neighborhood boy (...for the record, that wasn't recently), taking a walk on a busy highway right after several days of heavy rain, not going to class sophomore year, asking my friend to demonstrate his martial arts skills on another friend who as it turned out had weak knees, paying to see In The Land Of Women in the theater, giving that bartender my phone number, and getting my ears pierced.

The good thing is that most of the things on that last list still wound up being worth it because of the amusing anecdotes I now have to tell about them, and those that aren't so amusing, I've at least learned lessons from them. Or I'd like to think I have. No point in having regrets though, right? They're worthless.

Anyway, did anyone watch Grey's last night? WHY ARE THEY RUINING MIRANDA BAILEY?! Seriously, DON'T FUCK WITH BAILEY. She is the only character that throughout EVERYTHING has always kicked ass and if you turn her into some kind of fool, I swear to god I will end you.

I got nervous that Big Shots wasn't on, but I guess they just pulled it for a week for sweeps or something? Does anyone watch that show? I don't like wait in anticipation for it, but I enjoy it. And Michael Vartan is really beautiful.

No Sunday night TV, but that's okay because I'll probably be exhausted from New York. Leaving in about seven hours and I'm SO EXCITED to get away and be spending the weekend with foreverseenstar, athena2483 and clarkdreams. Anticipate a very squee filled and fangirly post on Monday because on Sunday I get to see KRISTEN BELL! ZOMG. Also, we're going to do some fabric shopping for Dragon*Con costumes, eat copious amounts of delicious chocolate, see Human's Anonymous, go to some comic book store (which may or may not be redundant considering the whole scifi convention thing, who by the way Hayden Panettiere and some people from Lost will also be at), but really most important thing is Kristen Bell! \o/

Okay, need to get some work done so I can get out of here on time. (This was way longer than I meant it to be. Oh well.) Later, skaterz.

PS - Since there's a bunch of new people on my flist, if any of you would like a Christmas card, just reply to this post and give me your address (comments are screened).

I completely agree about them ruining Bailey! WTF????

And I'm soo jealous that you get to see KB! :( Have fun!

Dude, Bailey would've never cried when she got the promotion, and she wouldn't have been such a complete retard last night. I was so angry. And seriously I can't decide to love or hate Lexie. And if Derek hooks up with that random chick, I'm gonna hurt someone. If they really did put a fork in Gizzie for good last night, though, I think they did that beautifully.

There are no words that can describe how much I adore you right now!! That was so sweeet!! {{huggles}}
Nov. 19th, 2007 02:48 pm (UTC)
:D I thought you might like it! She is seriously the most beautiful human being on the planet.

Haii *waves back* ^^

& did you actually do all the things on your great ideas list? Or do you still plan on doing them? :>
Nov. 16th, 2007 05:33 pm (UTC)
They are things I've done. One of the entries with that tag is about potentially driving across the country. Assuming that actually happens, it remains to be seen which list it will end up on. :)
Nov. 16th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
that's great ^^ hehe, if you actually do drive across the country, I'd love to join you :D

You forgot about letting an ex-Eagles football player pay our way into Britney Spears' New Year's party... although not sure which list that goes on, I mean it was great until we ran barefoot back to the hotel
Nov. 16th, 2007 07:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that could go either way considering how disasterous most of the rest of the night was.

Red Bull and vodka... pleh.

I feel like as a whole, that trip could maybe go on the "Great Ideas Which Turned Out To Be Not So Great After All" list. Kind of went downhill after the Bellagio...
Nov. 16th, 2007 08:46 pm (UTC)
You really think so? I loved that trip! :(
Nov. 16th, 2007 09:01 pm (UTC)
I loved parts of it. People were bitching and being drunk and dumb and annoying. And Eddie was being a jerkface. Eh, I guess most of it was good and I'm just being negative. I was also sick for a good lot of it.
Nov. 16th, 2007 09:02 pm (UTC)
Oh wait... that spa ALONE made the trip pretty fantastic. Mmm, the spa...
Nov. 16th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
I want a massage... but yeah I know what you mean about the not so good parts, like me crawling into a bed full of puke. I didn't want her to sleep with me in the first place! So gross.
Nov. 16th, 2007 06:23 pm (UTC)
michael vartan really is pretty.
Nov. 16th, 2007 07:48 pm (UTC)
He makes me happy. :)

Try this bad idea: Stay up all night after Thanksgiving in line at Walmart (and do you know how hard it is to stay awake after porking myself all day?) for a cheap computer for my husband to work on, only to find out that they ran out of the computers at 5:20... two people in line ahead of me. WTF, Walmart... you advertise this freaking great deal and only order 7 computers? WTF.

But I'll be at Circuit City again this year for a DVD hand recorder, ginormous comp moniter, and various DVDs. Hopefully things turn out better for me. =/

I did watch Grey's. I don't think they hurt Bailey's character too much. I say that hesitantly. Her being flirty and empty headed around the guy got annoying, but the rant to Shepherd in the end got to me a bit. Kick ass people aren't born kick ass. The things that she dealt with in high school strengthened her into the awesome, unstoppable BAILEY that she is today. I'm hoping they are shedding this light on her to show us that...
otherwise- I'll be pissed as well.
Nov. 16th, 2007 07:46 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, that is the WORST. I hope things go better for you this year. Yeah, last year we were soooo far back in the line at Best Buy, and there wasn't really anything I wanted. lol

Yeah, I liked the speech at the end, but didn't like that she got so weepy during it. And I thought they took the foolishness a bit far in the episode. It seemed a little too far out of character for her. I am just uber critical of Grey's at this point because it's fallen so far from what it was and I want so badly for it to get back there.
Nov. 16th, 2007 07:52 pm (UTC)
Agreed. Things to to get back to mid season 3. Before Meredith got dark and twisty fo' real, George and Izzy took that fatal plunge, and it became apparent that Sloan really was sticking around (sorry... can't stand the guy.) Christina's my fav. and Derek. But I miss the old George the most.
Nov. 16th, 2007 07:59 pm (UTC)
If that was them putting a for real end to Gizzie last night, then I think they did a beautiful job and I will rejoice on high. I like dark and twisty Meredith, but not stupid dark and twisty Meredith who makes dumb choices ALL THE TIME. I feel like I was the only one, but I actually liked that whole crazy ferry crash arc last season. I appreciate Sloan's comic relief but I don't care one way or another. I think I miss Addison...

I agree with you: buying a Macbook could be the smartest move anyone makes. :]]]
Nov. 16th, 2007 10:47 pm (UTC)
Once you go Mac, you never go back. :)

For curiousity's sake, I read GA season 4 episode summaries and they look horrible to me ): Not watching
