|Much Ado About 2006
Looking back on this past year has been weird; it always is when you stick measurements to accomplishments.
How can I my life for the past 12 months? I wish I could just pick one word like "change," "thirty," or "mature." All those words sound so pedantic though.
A quick recap would be Carrie and I made it through another year of loving each other. We had our ups and downs: change of careers, lose of job, new home, death of Sammy (oh, original techno kitty, I love you!), addition of DRC (cutest dog eva!!!!!!!!). And there were lessons learned: roommates and Carrie and I are like Oil and Vinegar, it's easier to ask for help than to stress out about getting things done, how to listen.
This year I turned 30 and I really feel like I've done some growing up, it's been a long time since I've felt that way.

|What to do...
I have no idea what to do today. I just finished an hour long grooming session with DRC...she is now absolutely stunning in all her Cocker glory. I really wish Carrie was home so we could just cuddle and waste the day walking and laughing. Damn working!
Last night I DJ'ed a rave-tastic event at the Fez. It was basically ravetastic. I thought the speakers sounded like shit. It amazes me that people actually accept crappy sound since it is loud sound. The one redeeming factor was that I got to dust off some of my ravetastic records like Chemical Brothers' "It Doesn't Matter" and Underworld's "Born Slippy (Nuxx)." Much fun for music!

I'm sick in that "OMG I can't be sick" sort of way. I have far too much to do this week...work, dj'ing twice this weekend, getting the house reorganzed for after Christmas joy. Yesterday, I just sat on my couch and was sick all day with cute dogs surrounding me. Today, I worked. I wish I could have continued my puppy cuddle puddle.

Lulu is at our house right now. If you're wondering who Lulu is, she is a year and a half old Boston Terrier who is Derek and cyn's dog. She is super sweet and her and DRC seem to really get along quite well.
My roommates are gone for a few days. I keep having inappropiate fantasies about their demise. I should knock it off.

I can't figure why I am so mean to Carrie when she wakes me up after just barely falling asleep. I really don't want to be mean...I want to wake up all joyous after she's burped in my ear and I am asleep. Unfortunately, I am just incapable of that. Now she won't call me on the phone and I can't figure out if it is because she is mad at me for being mean or just busy getting ready for work.
We'll be okay either way, we always are.

DRC ate chocolate yesterday. It was pretty nightmarish. Imagine a 8 year old child freebasing cocaine and that is essential the same reaction of chocolate on 9 month old cocker spaniels. She finally settled down at about 5am this morning (consumption occurred while I was at work between 12pm-4pm yesterday). I took her on a walk today and she pooped out all the foil from her chocolate smorgosboard.
Speaking of smorgosboard...is there one in PDX?

Let me reiterate, I HATE MY FUCKING ROOMMATES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm making biscotti right now. Yup that's right...homemade, with my little hand...biscotti. I've got a cookie exchange at work tomorrow. I'm really hoping that it is goos enough.
|I'm enjoying most of it...
It's a beautiful Sunday here in Portland. The sun is out. Considering this weeks weather, that is amazing.
Carrie and I have had quite a nice weekend. We planned and executed a Greek Feast last night. Our selfish and immature roommates ate the food with no thanks or appreciation, just like they do everything. Today, Carrie and I cleaned house (again with no roommate assistance). It's nice doing things with the woman I love. We try to make life cute.
And just for the record, I am kicking Andy and Liz out by February.

Well I have a new position at the Goodwill. I finally feel like I am a college graduate after having been graduated from college for 4 years. I have my own office, phone line, e-mail address. I do not have to punch in or out of a time clock, were a nametag, or dress down. I really love what I am doing now...it took long enough!

So, I really don't know what to think about people right now. Really, as far as I am concerned (and probably just for a quick moment), the entire human race can fuck off. Carrie told me this past weekend that there is no on in this world that does not like me. Um, I'd rather have that then the general disregard that I seem to be mustering from most people. I should throw this out, most of my hurt feelings stem from DJ'ing and the fact that right now I have about as much privacy as a window display.

Tomorrow is Valentine's day...I think this might be the most stressful of all holidays for me. Growing up I never really dated anyone so Valentine's was never celebrated except with candy from my Mom. I really hope that everything...even though small and nerdy works ot just fine for Carrie. I love that woman!

This weekend was very adult in the most unusual way. I think a weird thing about Portland is that so many of us a transplants so we have to rebuild our social networks and supports. I've lived here for over 2 years and only now are dates being made to come over to ppls houses and just hang out. I like it.

Once upon a time I used to be a total nerd. I used to stay up all hours listening to samples of the newest releases so that i could be the dj, the music collector, the geek that knew it all.
Those days are over...meh;p.
Meh;p...that is about how I feel about all that. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a geek. But nerdom has been retired.
BTW...has anyone on lj heard the new Modeselektor yet? It came out about 2 months ago and is the embodiement of Continental Crunk!!!!!!

I'm making a mix to drive to Eugene tonight...it's been a while since I've thrown something on minidisc.
Friday I get my new cd burner then it will be goodbye minidisc...hello obsessive recording onto CD.
I wonder what I will put on it. It's got to be uplifting, cheesy and bouncy....jpop?
So, I was on the bus last night and I was alarmed at the amount of tweakers that traverse our streets everyday. I swear to God I was in a tweaker sandwich...and they were blatant...so blatant. Tweakers sketch me out, in case you didn't know. I don't know why. It's not like I have been socially around a bunch of them but they're just sketchy. How can one let themselves fall so far?
Damn this American society!!!
On a funnier note I talked to Lenny on Saturday and he asked about my new girlfriend. I was like "huh?". Then I realized that he probably assumed that the picture of Terra and me on my myspace indicated to him new girl...yeah right buddy!!!

I'm thinking about changing my hair color to red or orange...not the unnatural shades of those two but an awesome color. Will I be ripping of Kim from America Next Top Model? I don't think so...my hairstyle is pretty fucking cute to begin with, I'm just toying around with upping the ante.
Anyone care to comment (oh yeah, I haven't dyed my hair in over 5 years so it about time if ever).

Screw all that loneliness bullshit...I just need to fill something...get a project. I think I've found one. For the past year or so I've been creating mixes that to me reflect a soundtrack of something not yet created. I want to meld the music with visual. Graphically. This caused some distraught on the family homefront. I'm a bitch and really hard to work with. In groups I take a back seat and I don't want my project to be my project without me at the wheel. But I want it to be our project too. Maybe we an work things out...maybe we can create something else. I want do something amazing for and with her...maybe this is the amazing project we shoud work on. Tonight I need to record, that is all I reall know right now.
