Oh, yeah. There was this time I was pinned down by this guy that played left tackle for varsity... Well, at least he used to before he was a vampire... Anyway, he had this really, really thick neck, and all I had was a little, little Exact-O knife ... You're not loving this story.

This isn't exceptionally important, but I didn't want it to get lost in Natter. For some reason AIM ate my buddy list, so I pretty much lost everything. For those of you who are AIM inclined, IM me at CybervixenHDN, and I'll add you back to my buddy list. I now return you to your regularly scheduled lives.

If I only had a brain...

I just got a call from our NC Realtor. The appraisal came through. The mortgage approval came through. The inspection turned up nothing major.

Our closing is September 27th. As of October, we will (sort-of) own precisely one house.

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

This may be a little lightweight for Beep Me, but my first fencing tournament is tomorrow, and I don't know if I'll be checking in again before then. I could use some good fencing vibes, not to mention plenty of anti-falling-on-my-ass vibes, if you can spare any of those.

It's a remora, dimwit.

I've been dark for a week because I got the last-minute assignment to help arrange stuff for Pagan Pride Day tomorrow, along with assembling and training the Miskatonic Cheerleaders. We'll be performing for thousands of devil worshippers tomorrow, so vibes would be appreciated, esp because this is going to be an audition for the Pirate Cheerleaders for three of us, and we really want to get it because outside of Walmart, cheerleading is really the only socially acceptable venue for American women to yell and scream at people.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

I've been grey for a few days, but going completely dark till Thursday night. I'll be in a Writers in Residence program, essentially a retreat. So vibes would be appreciated that the vcr does its true and trusty duty for the Buffy premiere.

I'll be skipping like a skippy mcskipperson when I get back, so keep beep me and press updated with any and all notable info. Miss you guys!

Mostly lurking...

I'm still banning myself from the board, but I stopped by to see how many messages I was behind on. Woah! I sure better get my school work done soon. I've got a lot of posts to catch up on (3,500 in natter alone).

I did want to stop by also, though, and let everyone know WE ARE IN OUR HOUSE!!!! YAY!!!! It only took two days to unload the truck, as opposed to the four days it took to load it. The house is beautiful and amazing. My room is actually quite huge. We have a lot of unpacking still to do, but it will finish eventually.

I got to meet a bunch of the area Buffistas Friday night for the Firefly premier. Everyone is so wonderful. I was telling my parents what a great time I had, and my dad said, "You know, you are really blessed to have found this internet group before we moved. I think they have made this move so much easier for you, and they sound like great people." I can't wait until the Buffy premier tomorow night at Victor's house.

I miss you all. I should be done with this class by Friday, and then I'll be back.

Sometimes I think I might just move up to Vermont, open a bookstore or a vegan restaurant. Adam Schlesinger, z''l

I just took the GREs. 660 verbal, 800 quantitative, 800 analytic.

Up with the sun

I'm back from my honeymoon. Montreal is a wonderful city, and the wedding went perfectly. Now I just need to get used to this "work" thing again...
