O HAI feistykitty!
Now you know how to greet people in Lolspeak!

I'm not sure whether to be amused to disgusted.

and yes, it's a silly quiz, because even though lots is going on, i don't feel like posting about it now.

I've been busy playing with yarn lately. I've made two dolls for my nieces Madison and Tori for their birthdays. Just finished Madison's today, Tori's was delivered last month.

long time, no post [25 Jan 2008|08:48pm]
[ mood | creative ]

So I haven't posted in ages, and now I'm posting to tell anyone who might care about my new blog, someplace else!

I've been spending most of my time lately working on various crochet projects, and I started a blog for that particular hobby.

You can find it here:

In other news, we're going to be moving up to the Vancouver, Washington area about this time next year.

Not much else to report.

Books [30 Aug 2007|07:36pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

I have just been given a TON of books by a co-worker whose brother is moving. I'm on a book-trading website where I'm trading some of them for other books, but I have WAY too many.

Most of them are fantasy stuff that I would have loved as a teenager, but I don't really enjoy so much anymore.

Feel free to browse the list of books - I'll mail them to anyone who wants them! Seriously, if you want any, or know anyone who wants any, give me a message with an address and I'll send them. Feel free to sign up on the website too, if you're interested. Comments are screened, so nobody else will see what you're asking for, or your address.

You can get my list of books here:

Please don't hold it against me what's listed there - most of them were donated to me!

EDIT: you can also email requests/addresses to me at feistykitty at gmail dot com.

i just took a small bit of the brisket i grilled yesterday and chopped it up with a bit of the chicken breast i grilled last week, three spoonfulls of homemade salsa, a dash of KC Masterpiece fajita marinade/sauce and about a cup of frozen corn, microwaved it hot then ate it with homemade tortillas.

it was goddamn incredible.

i love cooking.

We did it! [30 Aug 2006|05:44pm]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

So after 9 months of posts with no real content, here's one with content of a most significant sort.

As of about 10:30am, Sunday August 27, 2006, I am married!

More pics here

Perhaps I will post more about it when it has all sunk in and I have the words to describe it. For now, all I can really say is it was perfect.

edit: changed the link to photos - there are more in the new location.

What is yours?
Explain yourself
Culinary: butter i only like to cook with real butter, and i love using lots of it!
Literary: fantasy epics i read fantasy series that usually are not complete and i end up waiting years for the next one in a series that isn't even any good anymore and will probably never even be completed.
Audiovisual: romance movies i catch myself now and then really enjoying stupid romantic movies that don't really seem like my style.
Musical: the grateful dead i still am somehow moved by the music of the grateful dead, although at this point that may just be nostalgia.
Celebrity: johnny depp do i really need to explain?

Now I tag:-

My friend's band, Army of Robots has a chance to open for Bon Jovi. OK, Bon Jovi ain't the hottest thing, but still, it's a big name.

I really think Army of Robots is an awesome band, and not just because I know them. Please vote for them!

Book meme [11 Jan 2006|07:38pm]
Taken from foobarbazquux:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

All there is.

long overdue update with news [21 Dec 2005|03:54pm]
[ mood | jubilant ]

ok, most important first (for you with short attention spans!)

yes, i'm engaged! Chris asked me on friday, and i accepted (obviously). for those that care, the ring is one diamond with sapphires on either side, and it's beautiful. i'll have a better pic eventually. we're telling my parents when we see them this weekend for Christmas. hmm. maybe i'll make this post friends-only until after i tell my parents... just in case! you never know who looks at your lj.

we're planning on a small, less formal event for the actual wedding, sometime around summer. no long engagement for us - i'm not getting any younger! ;)

in other news - i just got a promotion at work! 4 top people at the company turned in their 30-day notice a week and a half ago, and i'm taking over a lot of the duties of one of them. got a small raise, putting most of it into my 401k. no more operating a copier for me!

as you might have figured by now, the living arrangement with Chris is working out very nicely. i moved in in september, and things are fine (except for the roommates' cat, who picks on my cats mercilessly). eventually i'd like for Chris and i to have our own place, but for now this arrangement is great - cheap rent so we can save, and the roommates (aside from the cat) are good people.

so that's what's new here. life is good. no, life is wonderful. :D

ch-ch-ch-ch-changes [14 Dec 2005|03:07pm]
[ mood | excited ]

the last time i posted anything of substance, i was moving.

the move went ok (except my old landlord has still not gotten me my security deposit back, have to call again. bleh.), and we're all settled in. well, the cats are still a little unhappy because my roommates' cat doesn't like them, but they're dealing with it.

now, more changes.

i just got a promotion at work. i will no longer be a "copy machine operator" as i call it (i really do a lot more than that, but that's the essence), but i will be in charge of quite a bit of the technical site of our web-based business. i'm still not totally sure what all it'll entail, but it's effective monday, and i'll figure it out as i get trained over the next couple weeks.

i'm still kind of in shock over the whole thing - i'll be going from dealing with copiers/printers on the production floor to an office (shared with my boss, but he'll rarely be in there). so very different. i'll be one of the people helping decide where the company goes and how we get there.

things are going to get interesting. or boring, i can't decide.

ok, i'll do it too. [08 Dec 2005|08:24pm]
[ mood | tired ]

First sentence of the first post of each month this year. this is bound to be boring and trite. let's see what we've got...

January: so i ended up going to my best friend's party for new year's eve, and it was fun.

February: so i went to watch the superbowl with my boss and his wife last night. drank too much, got home really late, couldn't go to work this morning.

March: my greatest wish is that i had any kind of creative/artistic talent.

April: so i've been thinking about seeing if i could change my schedule at work to a more "normal" schedule, to have my evenings free.

May: (first was a stupid quiz, second was mainly just an image, so here's the third) i am eating the best strawberries i've ever had (well, with one exception, the chocolate covered ones my friend's mom made way back...*swoon*)

June: So - New Wave City tomorrow. My boyfriend and I will be going.

July: i used to watch the occasional "love story" movie (princess bride, etc), and they would always leave me feeling a little sad.

August: being rather an aficionado of science fiction, this makes me feel like a kid at christmas time.

September: so over the last year and a few months, i have occasionally been having some strange heart palpitations (arrhythmia type stuff).

October: happy birthday chuck_lee!!

November: (no post, just quiz results. november was a quiet month)

December: All I want for christmas is a butter wizard.

Seriously. If this thing works, it would be a wonder to behold.
