it was a rather... interesting night... ;)

so its not blue steel... maybe steeley dan...
(sorry, this was an attempt at an 'arty' shot a little while back)


Isn't it all about perspective? Life can change in the blink of an eye. One day you're waking up to a relatively normal day and the next your world is thrown into uncertainty. It could be little, by some standards, but to you it’s a whole fugging lot of change.

Well, I guess that’s the reality of perspective. My version of horrid and unbearable is "another Saturday night" to someone out there. I have to keep this in mind. Actually, I always keep it in mind, which is maybe one of the key reasons I don’t open up to anyone. Hey, we all know those people that, when you tell them something, immediately think of something bigger or better or more terrible or more sad, in ANY way, its just *more*. Their reality -their perspective- is one that overshadows everyone else. No one can compare to their pain, their hardship, their glory or their luck. I say: Go sod yourself. No matter where you are in this world, one perspective should always be constant: there is always someone out there that is better than you at something. But, I digress.

Things change. For better or for worse. Yes, I am speaking about MY worse. In the light of something tragic we have two basic courses we can choose. We can wallow. Devour our own self and become self-pitying fools who have only ONE thought on our minds: ourselves. We can avoid dealing with the *real* subject and, knowingly or unknowingly, project our fears and our hurts into other people. We can dodge life. Or, we can suck it up and deal.

I think I'll deal.

Patrick Bateman (again)...

Patrick Bateman: Do you know what Ed Gein said about women?
David Van Patten: The maitre 'd at Canal Bar?
Patrick Bateman: No, serial killer, Wisconsin, the '50s.
Craig McDermott: So what did he say?
Patrick Bateman: "When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part wants me to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right."
David Van Patten: And what did the other part think?
Patrick Bateman: "What her head would look like on a stick..." [laughs]

imma hippie!

death and taxes...

tonight i sat down to do taxes and realized, i do NOT have a pencil. you guessed it: field trip. i went to shoppers drug mart and decided to take along the Px i got from the ophthamologist; these eyeball drops for the Evil Eye©. i wandered around the store and picked up things i do NOT *need*. par example: new pumice foot scrub that smells rather divine; a new pumice stone for feet to make them ever so soft and delicate; a purple ruler (wtf?); a package of 8 papermate pens; nail clippers... erm, again... arooo??; green tea scented tea lights; and dove flex-hold hairspray. i almost forgot the pencil! ok, NEVER send me to shoppers drug mart w/o a list! now, i can't be arsed to do my taxes. they are due on april 30th. i'll get them done, but i'm just like BLECH about the whole thing. the government really pisses me off! i just know i'm going to owe and what the hell?!! they alread took thousands of dollars from me already! 48% of my bonus last year!! did THEY work for it? nuh unh, i dont think so!! bastids!
i choose death.

it's playoff time!

i've been a flames fan since i was in the 3rd grade... very difficult in oilers-country! i am not *much* of a sports fan, BUT i do *love* hockey! when i was a little girl i would run and jump into my pops' lap saturday night clapping and "da da da'ing" to the Hockey Night In Canada theme song...

go flames go!

it might very well be wrong...

to think that a man who sang songs like "bring your daughter to the slaughter", "number of the beast" and "children of the damned" is, uhmmmm, cute... but c'mon now...
this is a face any great aunty would pinch! (i'd choose another body part!!)

exhibit A (then)
exhibit B (now)
exhibit C (now... rrraawwrr)
i laid in bed last night watching "the making of 'the number of the beast'" and was absolutely captivated by this man... there is just *something* inexplicable... charming? yes. intelligent? yes. hypnotizing? yes. articulate? yes. do other performers have these things? of course, YES! but there's just something endearing about him... maybe its the leather pants from the days of yore that keep flashing before my eyes. or his amazing operatic voice. or its just that he's so DAMN CUTE!!! imma sucker for dimples... im sure eddie is out to get me now!!

is "swabbable" a word?...

so i had this dream last night... i dreamt that a workmate and his wife picked me up after work from this weird kinda club. i don't recall the *type* of club it was, but i do recall some dubious activity that was going on around me; all blurry in my peripheral vision.
anyway, i hopped into their super-old land rover (which they don't have btw) and we took this back road to their place. his wife was driving ALL over the mutha*arfin road! i was screaming "yo, lady!! watch the cliff!!" as we were riding the shifting sands of this enormous cliff into oblivion!!!! did she not CARE!!?!? anyway, we made it "safely" back to their place, which really wasn't their home. to be perfectly honest, in my dream, it was rather hideous and super dirty and dingy, which is so UNLIKE them... errrr, it was like stepping into wild bill's house from silence of the lambs... (its puts the lotion on its skin or it gets the hose again)... so thennnnnn, workmate proceeds to come out of his bedroom in some very thin/trailer-park jammers. i'm like "dude, i don't need to see your ass in those!" he proceeds to slide the back of his jammers down, show me his ass AND spank it for me. the image is BURNED into my mind!! *gag gag bleach bleach* my eyes my eyes! zee goggles do nahzing! i will spare you the puss-filled details, but trust me when i say it was "swabbable".
now... my question is... how can i look @ him again w/o:
  1. poking my eyes out with very blunt objects??
  2. whipping his pants down and making sure the vision that i presented myself was completely FALSE and he does have a yummy tushy
  3. tossing myself and him out the nearest open window or
  4. have myself committed for dreaming such things about workmates
help... b/c he truly is a lovely looking fellow. and he brings me chocolatey treats on special occasions! overall a stellar human being. two thumbs up!...
i'm vexed... *grmbl*

"A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on."

leatherwing bat

today, i felt more cow ass than i ever thought i'd ever have to feel.
now, TECHNICALLY, i am not certain if the parts i felt were the actual parts related to the ass, but either way, most were SOFT as BUTTAH, baby... i wanna be using *that* moisturizer!
my friend is looking to furnish his new downtown condo. being a recent bachelor he is wanting to "pimp his ride" so to speak... max his pad... *cough*
today was a day spent shopping for leather couches...
i lounged
i kicked back
i flopped
(i almost flolloped)
i sank
i slid
i gasped
i groaned
my ass was pleased!
i have fallen in love with an assortment of leather... the soft buttery kind, the hardened durable kind, the studded leather, the crinkly leather... it all serves its purpose! mostly, to please my ass. which is has fulfilled quite well, i might add.
my *thing* that i have for leather has moved subtly from the bedroom to the living room!

On Pedicures and Retail Therapy...

this morning i was up at the crack of butt to go see the on-call ophthalmologist about my Evil Eye©... it turns out that i *am* the devil and now i am able to officially put that on my business cards! wheeeee. afterwards, i did the most ridiculous thing and drove home (30km) with dilated pupils... Not Safe! So this afternoon was spent doing some retail therapy with a very good friend of mine who is visiting (Guggs-O-Rama).

  • new OLIVE coloured hoodie
  • PEDICURE - nailpolish colour in CHARCOAL with a cutesy flower... how girlie!
  • Old Navy where Guggs bought his ritual "Calgary-Shirt" -funny enough, he was wearing his previous "Calgary-Shirt" while buying THIS one. Silly Guggs.
  • tim horton's break on the way home
  • AND being chauffeured by mr. lead-foot (for all intents and purposes, he *IS* a good driver)

tonight we're having drinks with some of my workmates... a bit of the "Accountants Gone Wild" i spoke of in a previous blog... my eyes are dilated enough, i don't know if beer would be wise. then again, i never claimed to be wise!

Finally... A Review

So, like, I know I haven't blogged about my "Opeth Experience" and I have been trying to figure out why. Mostly, I think, it is attributed to the fact that there just aren't words that can express how amazing it was. I mean, I LOVE OPETH. And to hear them live was just such a phenomenal experience that it is difficult to put into words how it left my insides.

The opening acts were Dark Tranquillity and Devildriver. I was insanely impressed by DT's stage presence. Mikael Stanne is amazing. Hearing Lost to Apathy, Damage Done and The New Build live was just fucking awesome!! Devildriver came on stage next. I can say that although I enjoyed them, the sort of atmosphere they encouraged was closer to a frat-party than a metal concert. I enjoyed hearing Driving Down The Darkness, Sin & Sacrifice and Hold Back The Day. The mosh pit began 1/4 way through DD's set. Being on the rails to the right of the stage was a bit scary b/c of the pit and these kids are bluddy INSANE -I SURVIVED!!! I must say that DD tore it up and subsequently left the crowd in a frenzied state. They were completely hyped after DD left the stage.

It was a bit awkward for Opeth to come out and play to this high energy crowd. The average 17 year old didn't come out to see Opeth, they came out to see Devildriver!! *gasp shock* (that is just *silly*!!)

Anyway, here's the setlist:
Ghost of Perdition
White Cluster
Under the Weeping Moon
The Baying of the Hounds
The Grand Conjuration
The Drapery Falls

Can you say… BRILLIANT???
Mikael Akerfeldt sounded beautiful. He does these little monologues b/w songs which I have heard accurately described as "pillow talk". Mmmmm. At one point some eejit in the audiences yells "Suck my dick", to which Mikael (in my dreams we're on a first name basis) responds "Why would I want to suck your dick? The only dick I want to suck is my own. And I can, you know!?" Another eejit a few songs later throws a shoe on stage. Mikael says "I hope no one shit in this. Who threw this? Don't throw things… *pause* If you throw things I can respond in two ways. One, I can get get mad and push it deep down inside or I can play a death metal tune. I will now play a death metal tune." At this point in the show, I wanted to jump the rails and do illegal things to this man on stage! Rawwwrrrr!

Headbanging!! \m/ /O\ \m/ Floating to the softer melodies. Opeth has it all. Growly sexy vocals mixed with soothing sweet ones has this incredible euphoric effect on me. It was altogether dreamy and severely intense. A paradoxical occurence.

Close to the end I left the rails and I remember sitting in the back of the concert hall listening to The Drapery Falls and thinking "I have died and gone to heaven". Then I remembered I don’t believe in heaven. They have such beauty in all of their music, it can be seriously tear-jerking.

The night was just a great experience. Especially for my first extreme metal concert. Bring on Wacken!

Incidentally: If I did believe in heaven, it would certainly have an continual Opeth experience.

if found out the reason behind my super chaotic brain! (humour me)
i have had a migraine since saturday.
its pretty gross.
i usually the super bad migraines in my right eye, which causes tremendous pain and sensitivity to light.
my eyeball gets all bloodshot (which is gross and cool at the same time)
and then i am forced to wear sunglasses inside and pop pills every few hours to dull the pain.
interesting eh?
HAHA, not as interesting as the reactions i get from my Evil Eye­­®.

is it a coicidence...

...that the kink-market happens to be in the same month that i receive my bonus from work?


what is it like to suffer from Cranial Chaotica? its like i can't rest my own mind on something for more than a few moments at a time. its constantly wandering from topic to topic in a very non-sensical order. which is odd for me b/c i normally i can trace my thoughts (reminds me of this one time when i was really young and got completely insanely stoned and tried to trace my thoughts back to my first original conscious thought and ended up tripping out into this void where nothing existed and then i was trying to find god(tm) and then came to the conclusion that i was god(tm)... weird). anyway, my mind is always hopping from topic to topic but there is usually an "audit trail" (blame the accountant in me) to follow. currently, i can't seem to find the common thread that links most topics together. i know. flakey. i can't deny it. but i can try to think of something to write about or even think about but then my brain scatters to the 4-winds and my thoughts are gone and im now thinking 4 different things. those then get scattered and suddenly its increasing exponentially until i just have to shut my brain off. rest. and it begins again. i dont really suffer from this "syndrome". i think suffer is such a loosely used word. my current state is what it is. hopefully my mind will go back to its irregularily scheduled progamme.

cake and death

those sliding doors i refered to in a previous post...
ever wonder how not taking that piece of cake can lead to death?
"no no, thank you mrs. crocker, i'd rather not have any cake today. i'm watching my midsection lately -watching it grow larger that is- and i really should be going..."
"well, maybe next time!"
*hug hug kiss kiss wave wave*
*SPLAT* der autobus meeteth thine head...
in your next life... have the cake!


i've been looking for some sort of voice as of late. sometimes i feel like i get lost among the mundane things that life can bring you. busy, busy, busy. and i hate that. i'm the first to admit that i am selfish and love my alone time. as i was commuting home on the express today i was thinking about what i could possibly blog about that might be of interest, even to myself. lately i've been feeling that there hasn't been much time where i have been able to reflect on anything that i have seen. as you can see from my previous blogs, lately i have been lightly beating my head against a brick wall, its seems, trying to find a voice when i really have nothing to speak. my eyes haven't communicated to my brain anything of interest in the world. why have they been blinded to the world lately? what is it they haven't been able to see? i think i need a change of scenery... these eyes have seen a lot, but they need to see a lot more...

things that go bump in the night know, those thoughts that keep you awake.

mine tonight:
  • how am i going to figure out this trip to europe. three destinations in mind: iceland, italy and germany.
  • stupid springy mattress! i very much need a new one.
  • when was it ok that i develop allergies?? what the fook am i allergic to?
  • how my friend in california made out today (no pun intended) meeting a new "friend"
  • why there is one odd hair on my left forearm that doesn't stop growing
  • i need to clean my truck!!
  • excited about friend coming to visit for spring break week!! (must buy groceries)
  • did i drink enough water today?
yah, not terribly exciting... nothing like some nights. im not one to complain a lot. heh, ok i am. but in reality, i never really sit and think at night 'what have i done with my life and why am i here???' i rather enjoy where i currently am and am rather happy how i got here and what i've done to make life what it is. there are moments when those thoughts that keep me awake take on their own life and wander into the places that are ruled by the "what if"... sometimes its fun, sometimes its scary. i'm reminded of the movie "sliding doors" with gwenyth paltrow. what if i never caught that train and those sliding doors closed before i got through them?... these times, my friends, are when stories are written... unfortunately, my ability is not in writing. if i were to write from these times i could never bring them justice. they would stories wrought with discombobulated plotlines and probably a "lost highway" meets "a clockwork orange" meets "meet the fockers" with a soundtrack mix of "pink floyd", "opeth", "gordon lightfoot" and "my dying bride". not for the faint of heart. i've always wanted to write. to be sitting alone in a cabin tucked into the mountains somewhere. or on a lake in the middle of nowhere. regardless, very "misery"-ish. just me and a typewriter (i love the sounds typewriters make). sipping tea and knowing exactly what i wanted to say... *mulls* maybe some day i'll surprise some of you... and then you'll be sorry...

soundtrack: Therion - [Vovin #01] The Rise Of Sodom And Gomorrah [6:45]
what a brilliant song to listen to while awake at this hour...

my word cloud

a fellow blogger hooked me up with this link and it bluddy brilliant!!

i had a craving yesterday...

and here is what it was...
and so now i sit, almost 02:00 MDT singing my head off to "close every door to me". i think there's something the matter with my noodle. im not a big andrew lloyd i-stole-that-music-from-pink-floyd webber, but for some reason i needed to listen to this production. maybe its the utter cheeseyness of it all that i was craving. i can't put my finger on the reason why i wanted to hear this, but as i sit here and sing it -completely off-key- i am reminded of the college production that i went to about 5 times. i was in absolute awe of how amazing these kids who were *my* age could perform so professionally. and it was a brilliant performance. i can't remember the name of the fellow that played joseph, but i remember his voice. i remember his face. i remember the guy that played benjamin and how he was incredibly beautiful with his long dark hair. i remember thinking to myself... *THIS* is what college was supposed be. experiencing anything and everything. and when you come from a small town in the middle of nowhere, like i did, ANYTHING was an experience. i loved to going to one-act plays, college theatre projects, art-house movie theatres @ university, "sleeping-bag-theatre" in the quad, jazz-coffee-houses, indie concerts... i guess maybe i was feeling a bit nostalgic in some way. going back to something familiar. maybe that particular performance was an awakening in my educational journey. opening me up to all sorts of experience. or maybe im just a sucker for donny osmond!!!
