THE ULTIMATE MYAN APOCALYPSE PLAYLIST (12/21/12)

I’ve always been fascinated by apocalyptic literature and movies (Doom and Gloom much? You bet). Yet they mostly concern what comes after, the struggle for survival when all our support systems have evaporated and the polite structures of a civil society are replaced with open-ended moral choices. Apocalyptic music, on the other hand, tends to be about the actual end of the world, when everything comes crashing down, Capital A Apocalypse stuff with little thought to anything that might come after that final collapse.

Since tomorrow marks, well, at least the day when you need to trade your old Mayan calendar in for a new stone tablet, it’s time to celebrate songs that celebrate La Fin du Monde (which, by the way, I’ll be drinking tomorrow along with some Wild Heaven Eschaton).

To clarify, these are songs about the end of the world, not just the last songs you’d like to hear.

For that, lets be honest, everyone should really just listen to nothing but Creed and Nickelback, ‘cause, you know, it’d make it easier to say goodbye to this cruel world.)

So here’s my 50 song End of the World Soundtrack. 
Listen while there’s still time.

I fucking turned 30!

So two weeks ago, I turned 30. I have lived 3 decades on this planet. I am fucking OLD.

I was all set to bum out in bed, chugging a 5 gallon jug of Carlo Rossi that was been watered down with my tears while watching Doctor Who reruns on Netflix, but my best friend Katie and my boyfriend Justin had a surprise planned for me instead….

Blogging from the kitchen floor.

So I moved in with Justin last weekend. The cats have totally settled in, Justin seems to be adapting smoothly to having share his personal space with 3 other beings. I am almost unpacked… I have a metric ton of laundry to wash, sort and put away, but in the grand scheme of things, that is pretty little to do. I’m really comfortable with being here too. I feel like I should be walking on eggshells, but I’m not in the slightest. I’m really making this place my home. I’ve unpacked all my books and started hanging art on the walls.

We’ve already stripped most of the wall paper off the walls in the kitchen and have paint ready to throw on the walls too. We’ve discussed getting an old, huge, beat to hell oriental rug for the floor in there too, because the 40 year old linoleum floor is just bad in every way possible. As I type this, I’m realizing that I am slowly turning this into some boho chic sanctuary.  Good lord, I hope he is ready for this! LOL 

The more time I spend with this guy the more I fall in love with him. It’s funny how everything I needed and wanted in another human was right in front of my face for the last 12 years. I’ve been scared to grow old my entire life. Honestly, I am scared shitless to be turning 30 in a little over a month, I have such bad anxiety over it, it’s stupid. But….

 

 

….I think I might have found the person I could look forward to growing old with.

Meet The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.

Meet The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers.

Well, Lebs knocked up Moxie at least 2 weeks before I was able to get him neutered. Time makes fools of us all… and freaking adorable baby kittens!!
Moxie went into labor around 10 last night and pushed orange #1 out around 11:30. Orange number 2 with double paws and the grey kitten were 10 minutes apart around 2AM and Orange #3 and the Tortie were also born 10 minutes apart around 4:30.
They are all adorable and are doing well, as is Moxie. I’m pretty sure I have homes for all of them too! 😀
Now I just need to get through the next 8 weeks!

Time Marches on!

So today marks the second year of Justin putting up with my bullshit and making it look easy. Honestly, I know I’m a handful and not the easiest human to date, but he is so patient and sweet he makes it look painless. He’s making dinner plans at some fancy pants restaurant for us to celebrate later this week, but personally, I’d be content with just an honest, home cooked meal and some make outs. 🙂 My friend Bruce found some photos from last winter’s house warming party that he and Krista threw last year. They are hilarious and completely cutesy and gross, but I’m fairly confidant that my smile says it all. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
