First a queen ant fire bite, now I have chiggers. I think I’m going to veer clear from nature for now….
I have been padding myself with hydrocortisone, Vaseline and some prescribed lotion as well as Benadryl.
I know usually the welts stay for about 2 weeks but I’ve herd stories of people having them for months…I hope it doesn’t stay that long.
At first, I thought I may have had poison oak, but I don’t have a rash…more bites that are just aligned terribly.
I was bit whilst hanging out with Diane, Yvonne and Justin in his clubhouse, I didn’t feel it at the time but later that night I was absent mindedly scratching myself than thought “Oh those must be mosquito bites” and but some cortisone crème on there…but my did they spread get so so red.
Anyway, Justin’s club house was cute, it reminded me some of 1919 with the obvious thrift store furnishings appeal haha
The house itself are recycled wooden fence boards with spray paint adorned over it, and a leaky rubberish coverlet for the roof. It was leaky since it had been raining a lot this week.
hahah and we just talked about a lot of stuff. It was great to get my mind off certain things but I do wish I brought some spray. I really didn’t expect his clubhouse to be in the middle of nowhere though. I felt like I was in a lame 'quirky indie' movie. We even herd the train pass by in the middle of our conversations haha
Class just started this week, I’m grating my brain for ideas for a generic essay topics….such as “Write about a good or bad experience that has affected your life” ugh. And then write about my writing process which will be easier to write about….but still.
I’ve been reading my textbook as well as ‘The Elements of Style’ book that Sara lend me a long time ago.
It’s been very helpful to me.
Last week, my step dad came from Iraq Friday. This week he has took my brother to a car dealership, so that means…in the next few days I’ll have my car back! Sweet. I can’t wait to already be so close to get my license. It has been driving me bonkers all year!
Oh, and there’s going to a ‘Welcome Home Steve’ party tomorrow and I haven’t the energy from my medicine to clean the house. They told me not to worry but urgh
At least I see Deana! Speaking of which, I bought vinyl with her awhile back, I have now the records of:
Some Ye-Ye 60’s Chanson pop record
Book of Love
The B-5’2s hahah
All for 14 dollars! (Big sale at Enertainmart, I’m a little bummed I didn’t run into Adam but it’s all good.)
We then afterwards began to get coffee and talked about tons of things, I drew her a card of a still from ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ only I just drew Chanel sunglasses on Scarlett Johansson’s character, affixing a dollar sign medallion on Natalie Portman’s character haha. She loved it and framed it, which made me feel goood.
A little before the my mom picked up Steve we went to Ross and I found some cool things, that weekend I went Marshalls and ran into Lauren love! So that made me feel a lot better.
Things purchased have been everything to Owl stickers, Wizard of Oz stickers, Orange wedged heel sandals, Daisy retro scarf, Green and Yellow bedspread (One side is striped and the other is floral), skinny light blue jeans, and a black and white plaid 50’s styled dress.
That weekend and this week almost felt like old times…Me, Diane, Yvonne, Justin and Tatiyana were all hanging outside the ABC parking lot and laughed for hours, Diane managed to get me a Vivian Girls set list while she was in Austin! She also made a very adorable collage and poem. Monday I hung out with Nick and we watched and made fun of modern lame pulp movie adaptations, drew pictures, and I helped him paint John Lennon for one of his classes. So many reunions!
Katie invited me to Chelsea’s 22th birthday too, so that will be swelllll
I love the Summer, sometimes.
As far as this week goes, I rented Vicky Cristina Barcelona the other day and loved it. I watched it with John again yesterday and he’s like “this is such a chick flick, this is one of the better recent Woody Allen movie though” hahah I love Woody Allen so much, it’s hard for me to see him making something bad. (Although, I herd, Match point and Scoop were terrible)
I also saw Stark Trek last week!
The action scenes itself were just very epic, I really liked the plot, the acting was pretty good too. There are times it seemed like it was almost a self parody at times? I'm not really much of a Star Trek fan but certain scenes as far as the dialogue is concerned was hard to distinguish as serious or funny. I know there are moments they meant to be funny like, “ARE YOU VULCAN SERIOUS?”
And they even have the ominous, opera, sci-fi, typical track for pulsing moments in the movie that I can say kept to the campiness feel of sci-fi. The movie ended me with a childish batch o' smiles and compelled to buy a Spock plush...speaking of which, uh
I think I have a thing for Spock now, I feel lame because that actor doesn’t do much for me so.
Maybe, I am attracted to pointed ears and bowl cuts? hahah
I want to go as Stark Trek couple for Halloween!
I’m getting tired anyway. Will update this later. Hopefully I won't die from eggs being planted in me or something of the like ha.
