My first day! [Nov. 7th, 2008|05:45 pm]
I'm still at work, but here are two stories thus far:

At the lunch table, talking about Halloween--
Me: Oh yeah I was a Pikachu
Coworker: Oh god you're not a furry are you

Call coming in on my radio--
"Hey there's a robot downstairs can you come take care of it?"

Exciting new job! [Nov. 5th, 2008|02:23 pm]
I didn't want to say anything until I got scheduled for my first day (which is Friday) but I got a job planning and coordinating events like weddings, dinners, etc at the Heinz History Centre (our history museum) in Pittsburgh. It's part of the Smithsonian Institute, so I hope to take this opportunity to work my ass off and move up in the field and possibly other museums because it's really awesome.

I think I'd be pretty happy being in charge of orchestrating those crazy $1000 a pop museum parties for rich donors for the rest of my life. I love that whole planning thing and hey free caviar?

Did "Sexy Pikachu" turn out ridiculous enough? [Oct. 31st, 2008|01:07 am]

Ugh so yeah after I uploaded the pictures I realized I'm going to have to wear little shorts under that to minimize the butt hanging out factor. I don't know if it beats Sexy Megatron, but it's still dumb and fun.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! It's my favorite holiday and I'm pretty happy!

Another great weekend! [Oct. 27th, 2008|07:55 pm]
I'm lucky! I spent the weekend in Philadelphia and not only did I get to see my beloved grandparents (which was awesome), but I got to see/meet old and new friends. Especially seeing ghostfaceposta was so good. He's always been such a great friend and it is just refreshing and good to talk to him in person.

I should be out there again in two weeks for the Dir en Grey concert-- anyone else want to go?

Anyway, I am happy to write in LJ again and want to keep it up. I was reading back on old stuff and it's really amazing what I'm capable of forgetting, and I'm sad that I spent so long not taking the time to use this great tool to document things in my life. Especially with all of my travelling and visits lately that I never want to forget.

It's also always great to see what you guys are up to!

Space debris is dangerous [Oct. 24th, 2008|11:47 am]
Last weekend there was a Philosophy conference in Pittsburgh. Pretty fun for me! I hate talking about Philosophy because it sounds pretty pretentious, but it is a hobby and I have a degree in it so blah.

Listen: We had a party in Space! They rented out an indie art gallery called Space for an open-bar party on Saturday night in the middle of downtown Pittsburgh. That was pretty damn cool and the Space jokes did not ever stop because I was never sick of them.

Sometimes I felt a little bad about myself because I was one of the only people who only had their undergrad.

I also got asked on two "real dates" which is exciting. It was the whole "Can I pick you up and buy you dinner?" thing both times! I didn't even know this happened anymore but it makes me pretty happy-- I really like dressing up and going out to eat and getting to know people, etc.

So excited about Halloween as usual! I love the idea of doing a funny parody of "sexy _____." Last year I was Sexy Megatron (my friend was Sexy Optimus Prime) and I don't think anything can top that. I might just bang out a Sexy Pikachu costume for fun-- I know this has been done at cons and stuff but in the real world I think it might be funny. Also I'll be waiting tables in it so...!

Please don't stop I don't want to get off [Oct. 4th, 2008|12:11 pm]
Man I need some new icons!

I am in that weird time between graduating college and getting a real job. I got a couple of boring offers and am waiting to hear back from interesting ones.

I left Pittsburgh over a week ago for adventures! Neil had plans to move in with Ben in Colorado and was going to drive there so I went along for the trip, planning fun things along the way. We were supposed to stay for a night in Chicago but it ended up being like three days. I love everyone there so much and the city is great too. It was just too hard to leave.

Seven more hours of driving and we were at a riverboat casino outside of Omaha. After blackjacking for a long time I ended up with a net loss of eight dollars but got a FREE BUFFET. I didn't even care if it sucked because it was free/$8 but it was amazing holy shit. I am feeling like this is useless without pictures because you just needed to see that whole buffet of little cakes and the turkey and shrimps and things. Also I am on a diet oh lord. Well... vacation.

I like how I just wrote more about a buffet than I did about Chicago, but a) I'm a fattie and b) Chicago will be better later with pics. I also want to ramble on about the Omaha zoo and the city in general, but I do have eight million pictures of all of that to upload so I'll do it later.

Colorado is beautiful and I was lucky enough to go on some scenic drives and to some parks so I could see the Rockies. All the geography is so different and beautiful here. You all need to see it someday.

I'm leaving for New York City in an hour! I can't wait to see the people there. ALSO I am going to go to a taping of the Daily Show with my friends Kitten and Sean on Monday! Then we're driving to State College where I'll hang with them for some days then it is back to Pittsburgh for some interviews I have scheduled.

So that is what's up with me! It is wonderful.
