*sigh* Just went back to theljprom community to see what had happened to it. When I stopped using livejournal there was talk of doing another prom, but I guess it never happened, because the community is pretty much the way I left it. Kind of sad, but in a way I'm also glad, since it means I never missed out on anything. Loved looking over the old banners and the prom queen vote and everything.

I need to make a more honest effort to come to livejournal more often. When I do log in and check the pages of friends I feel as though I've missed out on so much. I don't understand why changes seem to happen without me realizing it.

I came to livejournal today to reminisce. I was seeing all my friend's pictures on Facebook of prom, something I never got to attend because I graduated early. I was feeling left out and listening to old fifties prom songs (It's Raining On Prom Night, I love Grease so much) and suddenly remembered... ljprom! One of my happiest memories. It was an lj community that hosted a live prom a few years back. Beforehand all the girls got to post pictures of their dresses, get "tickets" by stating their date, real or imaginary, and being added to the guest list, stuff like that. There were so many people involved making really cool banners and icons and things and so many people online posting on prom night that the webpages devoted to each area of the prom, such as the dance floor, the punch bowl, the bathroom, etc, took ages to load. Made lots of friends that night, still one of my happiest memories even though I had managed to forget about it for a while. :) (I always do that, the happiest memories are always the first to go.)

I've been busy and scatter-brained lately but something told me I should log in just now. I did and was greeted with Squirrel Love. :) My first genuine smile in a long time. Thanks.

Here I am again on livejournal, pains me to think of how long it's been since my last entry. I was terribly disappointed when I saw a comment I had missed from a friend asking me to add their new username because I missed the opportunity to add them- their new username has now also been deleted. I feel so out of it. So out of it that I feel like I can only express myself using song lyrics.

Tomorrow (or should I say, in only a few hours because I've been up all night thus far too nervous to sleep) Chris and I are going to visit my home for the first time since I got married. Brings to mind a perfect quote...

Driving down the road I get a feeling that I should have been home yesterday...

Me

Wow... last update 42 weeks ago? I didn't mean to let so much time go by, or to completely abandon my Beatles community. I have a completely new life now. I've missed livejournal.

I guess the biggest thing is I moved, and got married to a wonderful man named Chris. <3 My trip to California that I think I mentioned was completely terrible, not that anyone remembers- I wonder if I even still have any friends on here. Ha. :P Chris and I are kind of hard up and we don't have a reliable internet connection- we can't afford one, so we sort of steal the wireless network from the school down the road. It doesn't always work very well.

Macavity, of course, moved with me. Chris pretends to hate him, but secretly loves him. I've caught him feeding and brushing him when he thinks I'm not looking. :)

The wedding was lovely. I wish I could go back to that day, even though I was basically Bridezilla.



I'd like to make some new icons with pictures of Chris.

We got almost a foot of snow yesterday, which was a delight for Oreo. :) We haven't had that much in several years. We went out first thing in the morning to play with the neighbor's dogs, and I found out she likes to catch snowballs. (However, when she dropped one, she would bury her face in the snow like she was trying to find it.)

I got many pictures. The snow was so deep in places that she was almost able to climb over the fence. :)

The snow came down so heavily that it felt like we were having a blizzard. (We get a fair amount of snow here in the window, but the real heavy, deep snow is rare.) My parents and I curled up and watched Snow Dogs together.

For some reason I'm finding it easier to express my emotions with lolcats instead of words.

The Recipe For Mythty

3 parts Vitality
2 parts Fascination
1 part Giddiness

Splash of Talent

Finish off with whipped cream


Today is the one year anniversary of Granny's death. Last week the family finally started cleaning out her house and taking home the rest of her things. I was so blessed because I got her Christmas decorations. I thought I had everything I wanted that was hers, but yesterday I suddenly remembered the special necklace I had given her last year. My aunt Stacey had it with the rest of her jewelry, thank goodness. I went over and picked it up today- wearing it now.

We spent the day looking at pictures of Granny and admiring the rest of Granny's jewelry (and watching golf).

I wouldn't be surprised if my recipe had included several shots of plain old sorrow.

Would diamonds still be priceless if they looked like raisins?

I'm sorry I haven't been a very good lj friend lately. I've been so busy with the kitchen remodeling and so depressed about clearing out my grandmother's house that I haven't felt up to socializing online. So I'm sorry I've been so quiet and boring!
