Awkwardness and such...

I do too many surveys, but honestly I find them fun. So I guess it really doesn't matter. But I'm sorta going to do an update.

Christmas has passed, it was nice overall. Sadly we didn't get snow until after the holiday, but it was really nice to spend time with family, friends and Jon. Gifts don't honestly mean much to me, I'd rather spend this time of year with the above mentioned people rather than receive gifts. ^-^

I'd love to post about all the amazing things I got for Christmas, but to be very honest, I got " A Tale of Two Cities" and then money for my license... that's it. But, that is more or less what I asked for. I'm 21, I don't need a huge amount of gifts. xD

Though, I can talk about those lovely awkward family get togethers you have to go to as a couple. Now, don't get me wrong they are fun, but when you've never the people at the get together for your boyfriend's family, it's a little odd. Especially for me, I'm already socially awkward enough as it... the added stress of not knowing anyone but Jon and his brother makes it even harder for me to be able to calmly try and have a conversation. Yay for stuttering now and then. xD

Oh, we got snow. Yay snow! ... Wait... no... I don't like the cold that much, and I really don't like having to to shovel it. Nor do I like driving in it. Ok, not so much the driving in it, more so dealing with the stupid people driving in it... we live in northwest Ohio, by a lake for fuck's sake, you should know how to drive in the goddamn snow by now. It's really not that difficult when you think about it in retrospect. *shrugs* Can't fix stupid apparently.

Also, I "love" getting relationship advice from a 17 yr old, who has only ever had one girlfriend, and has never actually met this girl. How the hell does that work? I'd love for someone to explain that one to me, because otherwise I don't think I will ever understand. >.<

And here comes the randomness. 

Christmas is over, that means no more Christmas music!

Again...Christmas is over, but why the hell are we already putting Valentine's Day decorations out?

I want to learn to play bass, problem is my hands are too small... at least for the bass that Jon owns they are. >.<

Portal 2 and God of War are kinda my favourite games atm.

Choosing Death- The Improbable History of Death Metal & Grindcore is a surprisingly good read.

The smell/ taste of coffee on someone's breath is utterly intoxicating... at least to me it is. x3

I really kinda dislike country music... like a lot. >.<

I'm awesome... or at least I think I am... sorta-ish... maybe o.o  (There, Kas... I kinda said it... that good for now? )

I was asked by my mother who has not seen me eat since Christmas night what it is I've been living on the last few days. My response? "Anywhere between 12 and 20 cups of coffee a day and the blood of an occasional passerby..."  She had no answer, she simply nodded and walked away. I think I scared her.

I seriously want pizza right now... like really good pizza. Or IHOP at 3 am again like Jon and I had Saturday.

Jess... I kinda borrowed one of your blue crayons... don't hate me. I'll have it back to you on NYE. Promise. xD Feckin'  Hannibal Lector xP

Jonathan has officially told me that I will eventually have to learn to sleep... but.... but sleep is for the weak! I shall get all the sleep I'll ever need when I'm dead! ...right? ^-^

I miss you. o.o  Now which "you" is it? That is the question.

This blog is not going to make much sense to anyone but Jessica. And you know what? That's ok. At least some of you might get a laugh out of it.

Jess and I went out for supper to Pita Pit. Let me put it this way, we got there at about 1900... we did not leave until 2145 and that was only because we had to. I'm going to do a sorta listy thingie ma bobber... because that'll make it "easier" and also, these are in no real order of how they went tonight. Ayup, so here goes. 

  • Topic one that we some how managed to get on. Guys. Yep, common topic with us. First off you should know that any guy either of us dates has to be able to handle the other. So that being said, we came up with this "You've pissed me off, go see Rachael/ Jessica. She already knows you've upset me"... "But..".... "No buts, just go see Rachael/ Jessica. She'll tell you what to do" 
  • On from that we decided that said significant other should stock up on pillows, come in very handy for a makeshift padded room. And they may want to invest in a "hug-me-jacket".. aka straitjacket. My mind went off the deep end with that. "Hmm, a straitjacket could come in handy. It limits movement... that could be fun." << Insert Jess blushing here>> 
  • Don't take Jess' colours (crayons) ... let me repeat that. DON'T take Jess' colours! Unless you want to be promptly spaz attacked, it's best to just back out the room when she's with her colours. Taking her colours will result in mass beatings and sadness. And no one likes a sad panda. 
  • Speaking of colours, at one point I told Jess that if anyone took her colours I'd replace them with glitter paint. That prompted "Yay! Glitter paint!".... But because apparently, Jess is special and eats her colours, she'd also eat the paints. So according to Martika, it'd look like "She blew Edward Cullen"... or to be more tactical about it, we'll name the colour "she BLUE Edward Cullen". Yep. Jess then tried to argue that the paint was not for eating, it was for finger painting on the walls. "So, Jess... instead of blowing Edward Cullen... you gave him a handjob?" << Insert more of Jess blushing here>>
  • I am apparently a red crayon... which really means I'm a green crayon , like a tree... wait, no scratch that... I'm the purple one. o.o 
  • Peacocks >>> Hong Kong >>> Cock >>> Slim Jam >>> Oh, fun sex position >>> Cock Starved 
  • Please don't ask what the previous bullet meant, I've got no real answer for ya. 
  • "Jess, can I do something?" *gets up and moves closer to her*... "I promise I won't lick you" .... *gets denied and goes back to seat on opposite side of table as Jess tries to grab my hands* ... "No! Don't touch me... I don't trust you!" << Insert scared people here >>
  • Pirates >>> Plundering >>> Booty >>> Rechargeable batteries >>> "Toys" ;) >>> Sex >>> Swing set >>>  Cock Starved
  • Again as stated before, please don't ask. 
  • *Grumbles and runs hand down Jess' face* ... MRSA!!!
  • Shopping in Kroger >>> Unattended children >>> All have been given to the Goblin King until further notice
  • I love MY green juice.... 
  • I played SongPop in public... that was smart, seeing as I sing along with it, and dance too. Ayup. Pretty sure I scarred some people for life.
  • And lastly, after licking Jess' cheek, she decides to rub her face on my chest to "get rid of the saliva"....I   just looked at her at laughed when she called it payback. "You call that payback? You just motorboated me.... in public. That's awesome!" We walk out of the store and as I'm taking a drink of my soda, Jess comments, "Well, I could have yelled MRSA as I did it!". She side-steps me as I spit my soda out onto the ground and Jess laughs, making the comment that it was good that she hadn't caught me mid-swallow.
And that was our adventure for the evening. I'm sure you'll here more of our fun when we go out again this coming Tuesday to watch The Hobbit, go to second breakfast and of course, the highlight of the trip... Cirilla's! Yay adult stores!  Only going because Jess hasn't been there yet, have to rectify that. ^-^

Toodles! xxxx

11 December, 2012

I don't even know

Not really a lot to write here. I mean I lead a pretty boring life, but I suppose it could be worse. I suppose I could start off by saying that I'm excited to hear that The Hobbit is due out this week, that Jess and I intend on going to see it.... but no plans have been made, because plans fails anytime she and I make them. Hmm, I would also like to add a little section here to say that my prayers and thoughts go out to the Lightfoot family and to the Hollis family. Both of which have lost people very important to them recently, and both of them will be sorely missed. 

Found out, no Jonathan this weekend, something about the duct-work at the house. So, Christmas shopping and baking it is. Joy.... I "love" shopping this time of year. Can you tell just how excited I am by that? I love Christmas, don't get me wrong. However, I cannot stand how stupid and self-centered people become around Christmas. It's not about getting/ giving gifts, it's about spending time with your friends and family. Simple as that. Christmas has become a commercialized holiday, as have most of the others. Can't change what society has ingrained in people's minds. 

I'm going to go off on a few tangents. Huh, who'd have thought? Rachael not going off on a tangent would be more of a surprise. xD 

1) I've made the horrid mistake to re-read the A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin. Don't get me wrong I adore this series. But it's been ages since I read it and I forgot how long it is. Let me put it this way Game of Thrones is about 700 pages on it's own... the entire series at least the books that are publish add up to about 4228 pages. Yeah, that's going to be oh so much fun to re-read. 

2) I have low self-esteem already, thanks to experiences with a great many people. I've never seen myself as pretty, gorgeous, or attractive. I don't tend to believe people when they say I am, because I feel I'm not. I know I'm not thin, I never have been and to be honest, I probably never will be. I eat pretty healthy and try my best to stay away from soda/ energy drinks now, not gonna lie I do still enjoy them now and then. I don't eat out at fast food places, and I generally don't eat junk food. But lately I've had a constant reminder that I'm apparently not pretty enough or thin enough for any guy to ever take interest in me. That's what a girl needs right? Being told she isn't good enough, especially by someone who knows nothing of my life. I should just brush it off and ignore it, but it plays in in the back of my head, and sometimes I wonder if what this person say is true.

3) I don't know how many of my readers suffer from chronic migraines. But those who do, understand how truly debilitating they can be. There are days, where just because it's cloudy or rainy, you can't get up out of bed. Other days you're fine. Sometimes your head hurts so bad, it makes you nauseated and dehydrated, usually resulting in a hospital visit, IVs and pain killers... and consequently, sometimes over night stays at said hospital. It sucks that you go to a neurologist to see what's causing them.. and then have no answer. NONE at all. "Oh, it just runs in your family history. You'll grow out of them. Here's some drugs to help." Basically, "You're stuck like this... deal with it." .... Great T-T 

4) I've run out of things to talk about. I had a general idea of what I wanted to talk about and now I'm just out of ideas. I could sit here and ramble, but  that's not very interesting for any of you. So I think for now I'm done here. Before I go, I shall leave you with this... 


Significant Other Survey

I'm going to pretend that I stole this from Martika... but in all actuality I found it for her and she just happened to post hers before I did mine. 

How did it all begin?
We've known each other ages. Met almost 10 years ago at a family get together, he was working for my grandfather at the time. We hit it off as friends pretty quickly, growing closer as the years passed. But in the last 2 yrs, we'd gotten substantially closer. He'd been going through a rough patch in life and relationship-wise. I was getting out of a long distance relationship, and dealing with uni. We were always there for one another and I think finally it just dawned on us that what we wanted had been there right under our noses. So we started talking more and spending more time together and well....now  here we are.  (Yesh, Marti... I quoted RENT.... get over it xP ) 

Was it love at first sight?
No, there is no such thing.

How old were you both?
He was 32 and I was 21.

Where was your first date?
We went to a Dethklok concert... such a great first date, right?

When was it official?
 I guess we made it official around Thanksgiving 2012 .

The good…

What's your happiest memory of him?
I have so many happy memories with him, I can't just pick one.

Whats the sweetest thing he has ever done for you?
He's done a lot of really sweet things, even before we were dating.

Just hang out and be us.

Who said I love you first?

Whats his worst habit?
He tends to lose confidence in himself. 

Has he ever hurt you badly?
No, he’s made me upset now and then.

Would he ever cheat?
He's not the type of person to do that. He's been cheated on, like I have, so he knows how it feels. 

Do you trust him?

The ugly….

Best facial feature?
His smile is cute.

Favorite part of his body?
Arms, I love when he holds me tight. And his chest, I love being able to hear his heartbeat and listen to him breath when he sleeps. x3 

Hair colour?

What does he smell of?
Just him, he just has his own smell.

Whats he wearing when you picture him in your head?
Jeans and a concert t-shirt.

Deep and meaningful…

Pretty much, he always pops into my head.

How long have you been together?
Not that long.

Is he your best friend as well as your lover?
Pretty much. I have my girl best friends but he is also like a best friend.

On a lighter note…

Whats the funniest thing you have ever done together?
I’m not sure. Whenever we are together something funny happens.

Say something that only you two understand
There's a house... and it's surrounded by trees.

Do you have nick names for each other?
He calls me Spaz, Little Dove, Sweetheart, and Rach. I tend to call him by his full name, Jon, hun, or lovey.

All the time.

Do you wrestle?

Is he tickelish?

Are you?
Very much so.

His Favorites…

Anything home-cooked.

He doesn't really have a favourite that I know of, he loves all kinds of metal bands.


Your things….

Bless the Broken Road.

Anything nerdy/ geeky suits us just fine.

Place to hang out?
Anywhere. Usually his apartment or my place. 


Time you saw him?
Two weekends ago.

Kissed him?
Haven't yet.

Spoke to him?

The last text he sent you?
”Good morning sweetheart! Hope you're feeling better and that the dreams were sweet."

When will you…

Hopefully this weekend.

Speak to him again?
Later tonight or tomorrow.

Have you ever?

Psychology Survey

Rules are as follows: As soon as you read a question, write the answer right away. Read the following questions, imagining the scenes in your mind, and write down the FIRST thing that you visualize. Do NOT think about the questions excessively.

1. You are walking in the woods. Who are you walking with?
2. You are walking in the woods. You see an animal. What kind of animal is it?
3. What interaction takes place between you and the animal?
Look at it and slowly walk towards it.
4. You walk deeper in the woods. You enter a clearing and before you is your Dream House. Describe its size.
Medium size.
5. Is your dream house surrounded by a fence?
6. You enter the house. You walk to the dining area and see the dining table. Describe what you see on AND around the table.
Some books, pen/paper, vase of lilies, and misc food. Four wooden chairs around the table.
7. You exit the house through the back door. Lying in the grass is a cup. What material is the cup made of?
8. What do you do with the cup?
Pick it up.
9. You walk to the edge of the property, where you find yourself standing at the edge of a body of water. What type of body of water is is it?
A large lake, with clear greenish-blue water.
10. How will you cross the water?
Walk into it and swim across.
This has been a relational psychology test. The answers given to the questions have been shown to have a relevance to values and ideals that we hold in our personal lives. The analysis follows:

1. The person who you are walking with is the most important person in your life.
2. The size of the animal is representative of your perception of the size of your problems.
3. The severity of the interaction you have with the animal is representative of how you deal with your problems. (passive/aggressive)
4. The size of your dream house is representative of the size of your ambition to resolve your problems.
5. No fence is indicative of an open personality. People are welcome at all times. The presence of a fence indicates a closed personality. You’d prefer people not to drop by unannounced.
6. If your answer did not include food, people, or flowers, then you are generally unhappy.
7. The durability of the material with which the cup is made of is representative of the perceived durability of your relationship with the person named in number 1. For example, styrafoam, plastic, and paper are all disposable, styrofoam, paper and glass are not durable, and metal and plastic are durable.
8. Your disposition of the cup is representative of your attitude towards the person in number 1.
9. The size of the body of water is representative of the size of your desire for love.
10. How wet you get in crossing the water is indicative of the relative importance of your love life.

08 December, 2012

Ok, so here's the game plan... Pffft... like I have one.

Pick the first three songs that come to mind for each person listed.

Best friend-

It's kinda her song, and every time I hear it, I think of her. 

She's called the Llama... so ofc this song

Fits her personality... 

Just kinda fits her

Significant other
Yeah, it's fitting
He quotes this song to me all the time, so when it comes on I think of him
Yep, yep.... 

Joshua, Aaron, and Zachary
Josh's fav. so I always think of him when I hear it

This one is kinda just Aaron's song. 

I suppose this would be Zach's song... 

I love watching them dance to this song.

This is my father/ daughter song/ dance. <3 nbsp="nbsp" p="p">

It's a good mum/ daughter song

Not out of hatred or me being mean... just a song that comes to mind now

I can't not think of him when I hear this song, it was kinda our song I guess. 

Yeah, this one too. 


Well, idk if that was fun.. or a waste of time...
