My favorite part is where it pegs me as being totally gender-neutral. I swear, if you saw me in real life, you'd know I was a girl! )

And this part really belongs on the gimp_vent comm, but I'm posting it here because sometimes the comments I get there disturb me )

Ok, enough of that. If I go on too much about that shit I won't shut up. [livejournal.com profile] ithildyn gave me five things to elaborate on. Here they are:

Your ideal fantasy long weekend
You're going to have dinner, and your magic fridge has just what you want.
Fave 'bad' movie

I'm sure I can come up with five things I'd like y'all to elaborate on if anyone wants to play the "Five things" meme...

A few thing I could write about tonight:

! The fact that I'm in intolerable pain and have been curled up in a ball for the past hour waiting for my drugs to work, and since I've only got the shitty drugs, well, they're not working so well

@ The five things [livejournal.com profile] ithildyn gave me to write about in her meme entry

# My overnight job at Wawa and my first impressions of the "Wawa Lifers"

$ How I watched that movie "W" and hated it

% My car and how it's falling apart and yet somehow I'm not that bad at driving in snowstorms

^ My boyfriend has been acting kind of weird, not like himself much at all and I'm baffled as to what's going on with him

& This girl at work and how she asks me for a tampon about once a month - I'm pretty irresponsible and yet I don't go around asking other girls for tampons on a regular basis

* How I discovered white hairs in with my normal hairs

( How I've fallen headfirst into another Harry Potter fanfic idea, even after I said I wouldn't be suckered by romance

) I want a tattoo

[livejournal.com profile] ithildyn took one of these, and so, being that it was about art, I had to take a bunch!

artsy quiz results under this cut! )

I love leaving. Leaving is my favorite thing to do. Whenever something knocks me down... I leave. I have a long standing history of doing this. It's such a rush. It started when I left my parents' house to go to college, and I never stopped. It doesn't matter how much I do or don't love somewhere - once I get the idea that it's time to leave, I LEAVE, and I LOVE it.

A therapist would call this "running away," and this is why I don't like therapy. They take what you say and find the closest categorical response available, and just use that. I'm not running away - what am I running away from? There's nothing here. I don't have a problem settling down - why would I settle down here, I don't like it here! I don't have a problem forming attachments - I form too many attachments! Erica, for one - yeah, I'm pretty attached to her, alright. Erica is like... my sanity, my sounding board, and my constant chatter - she's like my TELEVISION. Always got something on. And Bevan - I am very, very attached to him. If I left here and never saw him again, I would be sad. That would be a very sad thing.

And it's not just the two of them - my manager, Vicky, who calls us all her kids. All my coworkers who've helped me out in a pinch and always invite me out - John, Heather, Lindsay, etc, even Sima, my ex-tenant. I'm kinda attached to all these people.

But I just don't see that as a reason to stay here.

I saw my cousin Ryan yesterday, and I think that's what has really set me off. Ryan grew up here - Ryan never wanted anything more than to leave here, and he did, and he comes home now and then, but he always takes off again. He works at ski resorts and stuff - he was a surfer, but he switched from waves to mountains because he wanted change. Ryan does it all the time, leaves and goes somewhere else, because it's just time. No one says he's running away from anything, no one says he has attachment problems, issues, disorders - they say he's a "free spirit" or sometimes that he musta been a flower child or something.

He wasn't - but close to. My other two cousins, the ones who are older than me and Ryan, lived in a tent with my Aunt Jen and Uncle Ber until my oldest cousin was seven. Yes really.

Ryan and I look alike. A lot alike. It's almost eerie. I mean, the older we get and the more into our own lives we get, yeah, we do look a little different. But the basics stay the same. If I said I had a twin brother, and introduced him, no one would ever question it. So what's so different from him to me? Why am I always viewed as "running away" and he's "running free?"

I'd discuss this with Ryan himself, but, see, he's already off to find himself another mountain.

First [livejournal.com profile] mog_bane, then [livejournal.com profile] ithyldin. I guess it's my turn now!

Ask me the seven questions below. Just copy and paste them into a comment, replace the blanks with anything you want--personal, silly, surreal (e.g. 3. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), or deep--and I'll answer honestly as I can! Then post this in your own LJ and see what kind of things people want to ask you!

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favorite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

7. Who would you most like to ________ ?

And here's another, just because )

First, a meme from [livejournal.com profile] ithidrial

1. My username is ______ because ______.

Lara_Everlong, because my first name is Lara, and I deeply adore the Foo Fighters.

2. My name is _____ because ______.

My real name, in case (just in case!) anyone from RL is looking for me, they can find my journal and know that I am still a part of existence. As far as I know, this has never happened. But I hold out hope.

3. My journal is titled ____ because ____.

Come Down, because it references the Foo Fighters song that I used for my LJ handle. And because when I started this journal, I was feeling pretty much on the bottom of the world. I've thought about changing it, though, because really, I'm not permanently down there, even if I felt that way when I named the journal.

4. My friends page is called ____ because ____.

Out Of Her Head She Sang, because even though in theory I know all the people on LJ are real people, sometimes it all seems like this elaborate made up place.

5. My default userpic is ____ because ____.

Well, that's Billie Piper, she plays Rose in Doctor Who, and she's my default icon because I like her :P I like her because she isn't perfect, because she's had an incredible life, and she didn't get a happy ending.

And now for the rest, which I promise is not depressing or full of rage. )

I guess what I can do that would be really productive would be to start shopping online for some shore-house-type furniture, because, well, summer is coming and the season is starting and if I want to make this whole income-property thing work, well, I have to have this all rentable by summer. Which is basically impossible, and how I'm really going to get everything done when I've been dicking around all winter instead of taking care of all this stuff, well, damned if I know.

The Caffeine Click Test - How Caffeinated Are You?
Created by OnePlusYou - Free Online Dating

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ithidrial, since, you know, I work in a coffee shop, I thought it was fitting.

For the record, I think I drank three coffees today, "coffee" meaning two shots plus milk and whatever in a 20oz cup. I definitely don't feel all that energized, though, let alone jittery. Probably since, you know, there's not much to do at work besides drink coffee, I must have become immune to caffeine all together or something.

I ramble about stuff here )
