Awkward Moments in Texas [Sep. 24th, 2010|02:30 pm]
Mercenary
[Current Music |Primer 55-Texas]

Doug and I went to Texas a few weeks ago to surprise my dad for his 50th birthday.
It was overall, good times. But there were a few weird moments here and there....



-My Grandma attempting to grope my boyfriend

Oh yeah. She tried. She sat him next to her for dinner and he was bouncing his leg nervously. She put her hands on his leg to make him stop, but it was more the upper thigh. Grandpa called her a hussy and Dad said to at least let him get drunk first. This was the first impression Doug got of my family as a whole.

-Old Biker Chicks Checking Out my Boyfriend at the Screaming Moon Dog's show

First off, the Screaming Moon Dogs are this awesome old cover band that play out in Abilene. My dad's been friends with them for a long long time and they've always put on a decent show... You know, for a local old people cover band (lawls). They played at this little bar called Strawberry's which was a smoke free bar. Doug had to go out back to smoke with all the bikers. Eventually, I was dragged with him. Poor kid had posted himself to the corner cause you could seriously feel the eye rape going on... Best part about this, all those nice biker chicks were at my dad's party the very next day XD

-"I didn't know John had a daughter!"

This was the number one phrase I heard over and over while I was there. I don't take much offense to it since I'm never around and I almost never call and the last time I sent pictures was back in 2007 or 2008, but it was still pretty awkward. At one point, a group of his female friends surrounded me and bombarded me with questions. Including, "How long have you been John's daughter??" But in that chicks defense, she was pretty wasted...

-"She takes after her mother. She looks just like Tina..."

I look nothing like my step mom, really. But I found it amusing that this phrase came up more than once or twice...

-Weird Guy Eye Fucking Me

My dad has a pool at his house and it's Texas, so it was still open. So I was in my swim suit and a towel most of the time. My swim suit is a set of board shorts and a tankini top. Nothing scandalous. My dad was schmoozing about as he does and I was sitting in my purple flip flops, towel wrapped around me and drinking my beer, just hanging out and waiting for Doug. Then some guy spots me and goes, "Are you John's daughter??" And I smiled and said yeah. Then he called my dad over and confirmed.
"Yeah, that's my baby girl!" he said, throwing his arm around me. Then the guy was all, "Yeah, you did a good job there, John! Real good job!" Then he proceeded to eye fuck me... Constantly... And then stopped when he realized I was going to kill him with my death glare. Meanwhile, my dad was so wasted, he had no idea what was going on.

-Taking Shots With My Dad

It was just weird...

I feel the itch to pick up my cell phone and text someone

I realize that using my laptop as a light table is a really bad idea and I have no idea why I even thought that it was a good idea...

I'm quite satisfied with how this picture I drew came out, though I know I'll blow off inking it for months

I fucking Love the Deftones and have no idea why I don't listen to them as often as I do Lacuna Coil

I know I'm rushing quickly from one thing to another, and just because it's not labeled, it's still incredibly obvious to everyone

I really hate this room and its awful memories and its stupid pink walls and I can't wait to move out

My cat makes my arms look like an emo kid's

I've opened and close several different windows during the past 10 minutes of making this post googling things that have absolutely nothing to do with what I'm saying here

I miss air soft

I want to spray paint this bed frame, too... Brass furniture just isn't my thing...

I think girls are stupid, and I am no exception to this

I've done absolutely nothing with my day, yet I feel tired, greasy and worn out

I find nails on a chalkboard pleasant when compared to the sound of my mother calling for me...

I'm an incredibly selfish person, I'm just very subtle about it

My cat rubbing himself against my sniper rifle = Adorable

As much as I hate the cold, I find winter to be one of the most romantic times of the year...
Just something about the winter sky and the way the moon reflects off the fallen snow...

I drew out what I was thinking of wearing as my Steampunk costume for ACen this year...
I dunno if it's right though. This is one genre that I don't seem to have quite down and I refuse to get ragged on by cosplay sharks...



Whatchoo think???

Vote for Merc? [Dec. 26th, 2008|12:08 am]

So, I entered a contest for a male Lolita design, and now the polls are open for voting.
I'd appreciate it if anyone could vote for me ^.^;
If I win, the design goes into production, which would rock.
But I got some pretty stiff competition...
If you feel like voting, you'll have to join the forums.
I'm in Motif B and I'm entry 5B09
But any help is much appreciated ^.^;

And Now I'm Broken... [Nov. 29th, 2008|11:54 am]

I've just done something that I've never done before in all the history of my life-
I quit a job with a no call, no show.

I'll admit that I feel pretty immature for my age. I mean, I live in my mom's basement, I still have the same job I had since I was 16 and I still depend on people for rides since I still haven't gotten my driver's license and I'm 22 years old. But if there's any one thing that I've never felt like a kid about, it's been the success I've held in the work place.
But what I've just done- it feels pretty shameful. I've always shown a tremendous amount of responsibility, and though I do have all my own reasons for doing what I've done, I still feel as if they're nothing more than excuses. As if I'm just trying to justify my own actions.
In the end, I know that I'll take the consequences of my own actions. I mean, now I have a big red mark on my spotless resume to make up for. And I also know that in the end, this second job was just... Well, a job.
But still, there's something about this whole experience that leaves a bad taste in my mouth and it's definitely left me feeling rather inadequate...

Okay.
I tried really hard to not hate the numerous crowds of Twilight loving fan girls/boys who were whirling around Mid Rivers on Friday night. I was trying really hard to just give them the benefit of the doubt, seeing as to how I still haven't read the books, but DAMN YOU STUPID PEOPLE!!!
I am now sick.
I wasn't sick until we went to the mall and sat down to eat.
I wasn't feeling sick after we sat down until this clusterfuck of high pitched keening girls sat next to us, wearing those God forsaken shirts and prattling on how AMAZING and even-yes, really-LIFE ALTERING that movie was...
Then I was ill stricken.
Honestly.
The glands in my throat swelled up as soon as they were done chittering out those words.
Twilight fans, your fandom has made me physically ill.
The last fan force to ever do this to any human was the sudden wave of pop bands that were being unmercifully churned out in the what? Mid to late 90's?
So there you have it.
Twilight fans-
You're no better than boy band fans.
And in the immortal words of Nathan Explosion; "Go Forth and Die!"

It's been a whole since I've posted anything.
Hannah's ashes now reside next to Sam's and Tony's are on the other side.
Boose has been Loving the attention, but you can tell that he's still pretty lonely without her.
I hate clinging to him. It's nice to have a puppy to come home to, but I dunno... Kinda' reminds me how fickle we are as humans...
I picked up a second job at Kohl's with Christy. It's a super easy job and the "asshole" customers are absolutely nothing compared to the shit I'm used to dealing with at OTG. Now, it's just a matter on whether or not I actually like working there. It's cool to work with Christy, though we never really see each other since she works Customer Service and I work the registers.
Meh... It's another job. WooT! for bills being almost paid.
There's not been a lot else going on.
Halloween was hella' fun though not a lot went on. I still had fun, anyway.
I really need to start jumping on these party plans a lot sooner...
I have about a million and one things to do before January and I bet I won't have a single thing done in time.. I could list the things off, but it'll just make me feel even crazier...
I missed Stephen Lynch last week D:
I probably won't make Sweeney Todd, either (though middle balcony tickets are only $35.00...)
Oh well... I actually saw this coming. Not that it's a big surprise. I've been dropping the ball a lot lately, it seems. At least I still have ACen in check, and I suppose in the grand scheme of things, that's all that really should matter.
Unfortunately there's not a whole hell of a lot else going on.
I pretty much just stay at home now a days since there isn't a whole hell of a lot to do and well... It's probably better that way.
Guess I'll try again in a few weeks... Maybe something will happen by then...
