So, the official plan for my birthday!
We'll be going to the Aquarium oft the Bay (I would love to go down to Monterey, but it's too expensive and a bit too far), starting at about 2pm (this means that my sister and I will be getting there at 2pm and we'll wait around for about a half hour to see who shows up, we'll all go in, and you can call us if you come later and want to join us) on March 15th .  I kinda want to spend the majority of the day there because I LOVE aquariums and I love to dawdle and take loads of pictures!  After that will be dinner...somewhere.  We'll be at the Piers, so I figure we can all figure it out afterwards, or if someone is in a particular mood, we can find something with that.  I'm not the pickiest of eaters, and we'll have at LEAST one vegisaurus (vegetarian for those of you who dont get the reference), though sometimes I forget who is one and who isnt (Sam, if you tell me you're a vegetarian one more time, I will kick you!)
So far, I know I've got myself, my sister (those of you who havent met her, or dont remember her, you get to meet her!!), Maimone, Michaela, Dani, more than likely Jordann...and that's all that I know of who's pretty much a for sure.  If you are inclined to come with us, post (or e-mail, or IM) and I'll update the list as I'm updated.

This is kinda a free-for-all...if you want to show up and celebrate my turning 22 with me, and just have good ol' fun, you're totally welcome!  I get that it's a Sunday, but lots of people are doing things on that Saturday, and damn it, I want Michaela at my birthday, so it's gonna be on my actual birthday-Sunday!!

Um, if me saying that you giving me a (HUGE...this means you Joel) hug is not enough, you can get me steam-punky things, I have nothing and I need to start working on that, but hugs I AM expecting.  Yes, I have an Amazon wish list just like everyone else, though it's mostly to remind myself of the things that I like and want to get for myself at some point...so most of the things are semi-expensive, so I'm not posting a link to it or anything, sorry.  If you pester me, you can have it, but I mainly just want hugs for my birthday, or anything that you see that reminds you of me.  But damn it, I want hugs for my birthday! And kisses from some of you (sorry, not everyone inspires me to kiss them...just the truth)...Michaela!  :-P

So my knee is quickly getting better.  It hurts quite a bit still if I turn it wrong, and it hurts even more when it's raining or super cold outside (so I'm super happy for the warmth we've been kinda having the last few days)...I get rather pathetic during the times that my knee hurts, and try to hide from people so I dont whine or anything to them (that just isnt me, and I try really hard to make sure that it stays that way).  Waltzing around is still a bit dificult, and I cant take HUGE steps, but I'm trying, and the more I work it out, the better it seems to get.
Past that, I'm disgustingly happy quite often lately (other than the bouts of patheticness because of the knee).  I can pinpoint why, and if you cant spot the change, you're being silly or blind, especially if you talk to me with any kind of regularity.  I've got 20 hours a week at work now, which is fabulous (it's the max I can have, and I only had 8 hrs/week last month).

Tonight is the 4th Friday Vintage Dance in Berkeley at 9pm with Sam DJing (yay to this finally happening again!!)...you should be there(!!!), with possible dinner beforehand. (Kinda want to go to blues since Cid is DJing-and he's never down here-but I want to see what the last waltz is! and I think it might be too much for my knee to handle)
Saturday I'll be going to a Sacred and Profane performance of Mozart's Requiem at 8pm in SF.  contact me if you want to go!  NO, I will NOT be at Gaskell's
Sunday is loads of work, with a bit of sleep in there if I can.
March 5th  - Watchmen
March 6th - FNW
March 7th - PEERS with Maimone and company (my god what a busy weekend for me!)
March 15th - by birthday damn you!
March 21st - Aaron's party and then driving over to Davis, picking the sister up, and then driving down to SoCal for spring break

Oh, and do you mean Aquarium of the Bay? The Aquarium of the Pacific is in Long Beach....
Feb. 28th, 2009 12:39 am (UTC)
woops! thanks! changed!
Feb. 28th, 2009 12:10 am (UTC)
Likewise, if you'd like! :)
Feb. 28th, 2009 12:11 am (UTC)
Oh I'd love you to be there luv!

Huge, eh? I suppose I'll have to show up just to see what mischief we can get into.

BTW - etsy.com is a great place for Steampunk stuff. E-bay is a treasure trove for all things Brass. The Medley brothers (Nemo and Robur) are amazing at building things. Steamfashion http://community.livejournal.com/steamfashion/ on LJ is a great place to get ideas and buy stuff. And visit your local conventions - I picked up a couple of books, a shirt, and Michaela at the last one I went to.

You know, my amazon wish list was small, now because of etsy, it's becoming MUCH bigger! Thank you!! :-D

"and Michaela at the last one I went to"
Hilarious because it's true.

I wanted to make a joke about getting to take her home, but I'm tired, and it's just not there.

I won't be at Pier39 (natives-aversion), but I hope to see you afterwards for whatever.

Amazon link - pester, pester

Would love to make dinner before tonight's dance, but I've got to build this setlist I've been procrastinating.

Skipping Gaskells? WTF?

Watchmen - are you going to a midnight showing?

I believe I'll see you at Aaron's shindig.

Hey, is your sister single?
Feb. 28th, 2009 02:04 am (UTC)
You have yet to tell me why you're not going to the Aquarium, OTHER than a "natives-aversion"...just cuz it's on the Pier doesnt make it not cool! You should come, you can make fun of how much I'll dawdle! And because you love me! Lots! :-P

amazon link...I'll send it when I get home tonight. Etsy things are on there too! How cool is that?! (sorry, I've just found that I can add things to my wishlist that are not in fact on Aamazon, and it's exciting...and Joel gave me etsy...it's a really dangerous place!!!)

I never go to Gaskells, ever. I'll probably go to one once I get the DG corset., maybe.

Watchmen - of course! Did you want to come with? I'm sure I can figure out a theater on your side of the Bay if you'd like to go.

You should go to Aaron's shindig!

LOL, you know, I love you because you make remarks like that to me. No, she's not single, but if you'd like to try to make her single, you fully and completely have my blessing (without saying this to hear obviously)!!

I've been to the aquarium - my friend used to work there. It's just not that exciting to me.
And natives aversion is totally a good enough excuse on it's own.

WTF do you have against Gaskells?

Watchmen - wish I could. I just remembered I have a Lindy audition that day in Menlo Park. I'm going to try to stay down there so I don't have to commute all the way home.

I'm pretty sure I'll be at Aaron's shindig.

I'm pretty good at making people single...
Feb. 28th, 2009 02:40 am (UTC)
That is totally not a good excuse!

I feel like people are looking down their noses at me at Gaskells, I can feel it on the back of my neck...and I dislike that feeling.

watchmen - awww

oh good, you have my full and complete permission to attempt to make her single. I dont think it'll work, but it'll be worth the try!
Feb. 28th, 2009 01:03 am (UTC)
I'm hoping to be there.
Feb. 28th, 2009 04:53 am (UTC)
Well, Happy Birthday!
I am spending this weekend being the "Lone Daddy Ranger" while my sweety is off at a knitting convention for the weekend.
