who's the zombie killer of the week of course.... Okay next week I am..
Ye' ole birthday is next week and I'm celebrating kara style.. and by kara style i mean all week instead of just one day. I'm hoping to get everything from :P Especially the mother earth birthing pendant... its just so beautiful I tear up inside... while she is tearing up too but different pronunciation....
First its sukkot ,so I'll have my sukkah up which makes me happy.
Monday is physical therapy, not so much celebration but I do get a massage out of it and the only ultrasound I'd ever want. I supose I did have one for the Boob Scare of 07 too but that was a tad stressful too, this one is not, just gooey.
Tuesday is massage with friend S.
Wednesday is haircut and knitting, rumors of pie are in the air...
Thursday is my day of rest, its like a presabbath.
Friday JDawg comes in and we bowl and drink at Flamingo. Friday's music isn't as ghetto as I enjoy but I will make do I'm sure. I will not be driving as my car was broken into two weeks ago when we bowled. Nothing stolen, nothing to steal except left over La Pizza which I'd be very sad about.
Saturday we are doing Chinese food and Zombieland with all the friends. We are going to Helen's (actual name is Chinese Express, Helen is the owner and Boo's adopted mother) and will have traditional cantonese food per Boo's request. It will be divine. Our favorite dish we call crack rice, definately not on the menu, definately addictive.
In theory Saturday is the end of the week but really Sunday is and if I know my grand baking friend she will bring treats unless she has to hang out with her inlaws instead which seems to occur on too many sundays... The question is what baked good do I love the best....her rhubarb bars are divine but everything oatmeal cookies rock my socks too.
I'm really dragging this sucker out... very not me but hey, why the fuck not? Hell October is my whole month, sukkot (google it), b-day, anniversary and halloween... its a month long celebration bitches....okay scratch the bitches, I suddenly am feeling very Samual Jackson ala dave chapelle....must be the mentin of JDawg and zombies... Need I remind you of LJ in Resident Evil: Apocalypse aka, Resident Evil 2, now with more freaky monsters and scary children - a little ghettotasticness in a zombie movie is fantastic and he was some great comic relief. Most of yal have no idea what I'm talking about so I'll stop here before I drop the mf bomb and whip out my two golden Dessert Eagles.

With a name like this...

i should try being crafty...and crap...
Recent finished projects, short but sweet....
Shedir with yarn by Dyeabolical, her cotton slub yarn is awesome. I made this hat with the intent to pay it forward to a charity. Its a great wool option hat, I just need to find charity of my choosing.

People are also fucking like bunnies so I'm working on some baby creations.

And I took advantage of my German coworker and had him translate Gehaekelte Topflappen for me.

Random Mom story

So i often bitch about my mom and her nutsoness... In fact today at Tower Grove Park I watched some grandparents play soccer and thought how young they acted and how old my parents act and of course got angry at them. Randomly this week I was thinking about sexuality and the difficulty people must experience when they want to come out... something they shouldn't even have to do, we shouldn't all assume people are straight unless they say otherwise or on the other side, assume someone who may be particularly flamboyant as a man or masculine as a woman are thus not heterosexual. I seem to fit in the masculine catagory at times and have many a time had to state my heterosexuality to those on both sides of the fence. Perhaps it doesn't help that I can appreciate and even swoon to some real knock outs like famike jannsen... but thats a whole other concept in my head...I'll admit i do stereotype too... when seeing a profile of someone I know on facebook i a) assumed they were gay from their profile after assuming they were straight b) I assumed they were the person I knew - how often do you have the same name and same location when your name isn't something like bob smith and c) wasn't just being a dumb kid who thinks its funny to pretend to be gay to shock people. I'm sorta on the b&c side of the fence at the moment. I don't know what i want to feel but I get really annoyed with the kids who play the C which happens a lot... its the new way to annoy and shock teachers and parents. Shoot where is a gang to join or drugs to use when you want to upset parents. Point blank they are being jackasses which really bugs me but alas, what teenager isn't a jack ass at one time or another, in one way or another, well except those Duggar kids who are all sunshine and rainbow... ....anyway back to my parents, my mother.
My mother early in high school had me read an article about a pair of lesbians who had been together since World War II in Europe. I had a great interest in WWII and have read and done many reports on it. Me thinking it was just an article on WWII read it and didn't really absorb any big deal on it being lesbians. I don't think i was raised to be open about race or sex but i read too much and came to what I think are good stands on the subjects without too much influence of my parents. I think my studying of WWII since 6th grade (first time i did a research report on it) really influenced these views. Anywho my mother used that article to try to ask if i had any thoughts "like that." I scoffed, being a young teenage girl but now i see she was trying to give me an open area to talk about it - if i wanted, if i needed, if this butch girl had other "non standard" thoughts. In 1995 I feel like this was pretty cutting edge for her to be doing. I felt like my four years in high school were the beginning of homosexuality coming out at a teenage time to the general public. Granted there were still many kids who kept it in until their departure to college etc. but it was a start and just a beginning of their struggles to have the general public accepting those wanted to be in general society, not their own subset group defined by their sexual choices.
Anyway, i just wanted to write about my mom's attempt. That is all, its not elequont but its off my chest.

Ain't no party like my nana's tea party

I've been waiting a good few years for Fan Boys to come out...ever since I heard of it being made I've been a bit stalky of its release...then I miss it coming to dvd and find out from Kara... I saw it tonight, I rather enjoy the "not wil wheaton" actor from detroit rock city, superman, and not another teenage movie Sam Huntington.... I'm a happy camper... I think I'd fit more into the Star Trek liking crowd (because my former bff was a fan) if either but growing up with my brother and listening to Star War loving jocks (whom luckily have come out much better rounded than my brother) I was a happy camper. And luckily in my house I've only got one guy checking out the hot chick versus my brother's star wars parties and getting hit on by the 3 years younger guys, one of which came in a star trek outfit to annoy the star war guys... He's now a very successful deeply religious jewish doctor but alas, this jew wasn't trained well in the art of finding a nice jewish doctor.
My big work party is tomorrow.. It would be faster and easier to have a baby it feels... I've made a playlist to keep me energetic tomorrow. I'd like to lock myself in the basement and get my shit done while getting my groove on. Tonight I kept myself going by getting a great pumpkin with reeses in it from ted was fantastic... I'm unfortunately i'm now wired... guess the music works :)
