It’s been a while.

23 03 2009

A long long while.

We are still alive, in fact we made a vlog. It took me longer to find a place to host the video than it did to make, download, throw on a ‘watermark’ and upload. I just don’t personally feel comfortable with youtube and LiveVideo. I don’t the whole universe looking at my videosif it wasn’t meant for the whole universe, just the select few that actually stop by and see if we are still breathing. So at long last I opted for Vimeo. Still public, but not widely popular. I did photobucket, it only allowed 5 minutes of my 9 minute video upload, so boo to them.

I don’t know, I guess I’m going to have to do some searching for video hosts.

But we are here. Just busy. I mean VERY busy. I hardly have anytime to cal Naomi anymore, yet alone find enough time to blog my thoughts. So since we ate out tonight it gave me an extra hour of free time. Yey!

Now the vlog isn’t great Nyx is very active and a total show off.  So hey we tried:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And in the process I found this long lost video too:

2 years ago, so Nyx was about 3 years old. How he stung his “penie”

Officially Unofficial

22 01 2009

Maybe it’s Unofficially Official, but whatever it is, I’m semi-engaged.

According to Preston it doesn’t count because I asked. But it does because I did ask and he said yes.

That’s mind blunder (didn’t want to cuss) if I ever did hear one. 

Either way, according to him, we aren’t officially engaged until he asks me. Which is weird, considering that we both know that we are getting married next year and that I’ve already started make mental notes and catergorizing our wedding in my  head.

But no, he’s an old school romantic and things have to be perfect. He NEEDS the romantic story to go with how he proposed to me, my reaction, his special setup, yada yada yada.

Dammit I’d be happy if he proposed to me with a 25cent vending machine ring at McDonalds. (Not that I want a 25cent ring.)

I’m becoming quite jealous envious of everyone getting married. My co-worker is getting married this October. The same guy that mastered avoiding wedding issues with his girlfriend for a couple years now. *le sigh*

Not to mention a certain important figure in my life is getting married for the 3rd time and has only been with her for a couple months. I’m still undecided/neutral about that.  That’s a story for a whole other day.

But I am quite amazed that I changed my status to engaged on Facebook and I was so graciously ninja about it that no one notice. Yey me! I don’t want to necessarily want to explain to everyone it’s not official yet, because then I turn into looking like the crazed girlfriend that wants to chain tie down my illusive boyfriend. Which might be semi true, but not. 😛

If it’s not known already, I’ve been allowed to choose the wedding date if you didn’t know before its 10-10-10. I never truly realized how hard it is to choose a wedding date until now. Not even during my first marriage did I have a hard time.

For J and I, we choose the day we started dating. Not a whole lot of thought, but then again we were just giving his parents a day so they could shut up. :X

I was kind of hinting at doing the same thing, but since after 4 years we haven’t decided if we started going out on the 23 or 24th of December made it hard. Not to mention its RIGHT BEFORE Christmas and just AFTER Nyx’s birthday, I didn’t want our wedding to steal the thunder from either events. Plus December is already a REALLY expensive month for us, anniversary/wedding would only make it harder for us.

So we went through ALL the months. But all the months have to meet my criteria.

  1. I don’t like odd numbers. I drives me crazy, but if it must be an odd number, when all the numbers are calculated together it must equal an even number. (Ex: 1-13-10 (24)) Yea I’m kind of cuckoo like that.
  2. If at all possible, even numbers across the board.
  3. Not a single day in February (Not my month), August (It’s already special enough since my birthday falls here), or November (I’d rather focus of Black Friday during this month).
  4. Preferably a weekend, Friday – Sunday.

I know I’m really bad.

So January was out because its too close to the beginning of the year. February was out simply because it’s February. March was a maybe, but it’s an odd month so that means I’d have to choose and odd day which left my options to 5, 7, 13, 19, 21 or the 27. Of which none really jived with me. April was a maybe. June was a no because too many damn birthdays. Preston’s on the 1st, Roxanne on the 3rd and Kyra on the 18th. Too many occasions already. July was a no because it’s odd and its starts getting pretty hott around then. August is no because it’s my month. September was a no because my dad’s birthday is on the 18th. October is a yes because it’s a 10, which is a good number and Halloween wouldn’t mind if I still it’s thunder. Plus I love the fall. November is a no because weird stuff happens to me during this month. December for pretty obvious reason.

So we are left with April and October. Both awesome months. But then I realized 10-10-10. The perfect day. Sure why not. And that’s how our wedding date came to be.  Plus 3 10s, 3 being Preston’s favorte number.

After reading that I feel bad for Preston, he has to marry my psycho number-math-picky-crazed ass.

Poor Guy.


14 01 2009

We were dropping Nyx off at school, doing our regular  routine.

Unbuckle, grab backpack, grasp the spam musubi, put backpack on, say our goodbyes, hugs and kisses.

Correction no kisses from Preston.

Preston: K man, have good day *hug*

Nyx: Wait! My kiss *looks up waiting for it*

Preston: Yea…..  no man. Here’s a hug.

Nyx: *bewildered* No I want a kiss.

Danni: Yea where is his kiss? Just give him a kiss. Geez.

Preston: Here have this *kisses his forehead*

In the car I had to ask what the big deal was.

Preston: He’s too old for a kiss.

WTF?!?! Didn’t know there was an age limit. I was then lead into this whole talk that it’s not masculine for two guys to kiss. It’s all about the hugs and hand shakes. The ‘manly’ gesture. Which lead me to ask, “You don’t kiss your dad?” Obviously not if he’s having this conversation with me.  So I spent the day asking guys I work with, do you kiss your dad? When’s the last time?

I lost.

Only one guy admitted to kissing his dad. Every 6 months. When he visits him in the mainland.

So am I just the weird one? It’s a small peck on the check. My son loves giving affection and receiving it too. It’s not like you are molesting him. I don’t get it, I must be weird.

Nope. I’m just the mom.

It’s a given that men will be men, even if they are dads. And moms? Well moms with forever try to sneak and steal every possible freaking kiss they can get.

After a day of thinking about it. I don’t kiss my dad. It’s been a while. It’s not like the opportunity presented itself, if it did I kiss my dad.

I don’t know. I figure as long as my son is cool with getting hugs and kisses from his parents in public I’m going to juice it for all it’s worth. Because I know when the day comes that he says no, I’m going to be pissed.

12/21/12 or Not.

13 01 2009

Now don’t get me wrong I didn’t stop my Blog 365. I’ve been doing it old school. Good old pen and paper. Internet use has been kind of intermittent over the last week and I didn’t want to break one of my resolutions so I’ve been journaling instead, which still counts…. I think.

But it was good just going back to the traditional ‘blogging methods’ true no one gets to read it, but I truly get to pour my heart and soul into. Subconsciously I know I probably filter some of my thoughts and feelings. I guess I’m just trying to spare hurt feelings, offending someone, or better yet hurting anyone. Don’t misinterpret that as me writing some really shitty things about people in my journal. This in fact is quite the opposite of what I was doing.

 I’ve been thinking about things lately. This whole society fart of the world coming to an end on December 21, 2012. Now I don’t normally fall for those things. I’ll take some hard facts before I even decided if I believe it or not. But although hard true proven facts haven’t been presented to me I will say I started to get a bit ‘nervous’ when people who are even MORE skeptical about me say I have some belief in it. I don’t always believe what everyone tells me, but when people more skeptical than I, people that needs hard facts proving to them the grass is really green, or roses are red confide that they find some truth in the end of the world I do get just a tad bit nervous.

Then comes me watching the History channel and watching all the shows proving that the signs are happening, that the prophets held true to their word in some sense and that the red sea will kill us all. My imagination did run away for a bit. I cried.

Sad, but true. I let me imagination get the better hold on me.

I don’t quite regret it though.

I thought about what if it is true. We all have 3 years left on earth. We brought this upon ourselves. We ended our own lives, mass suicide. If the world truly is coming to an end and not because of some prophet, it still is our fault. What are we doing to stop this? Nothing. Which soon led into… what’s the point of working so much? To make money to buy materialistic things when I could be – and much rather be – at home spending time with my family and enjoying life while I can.

 I won’t deny that I fell into a somewhat pit of anger, depression, and just helplessness all at the same time.

Then I laughed.

 A good laugh.

I was being irrational. Plus I was breaking one of my resolutions letting that ruin my day. If by chance the world might end I should be enjoying everyday, not being gloomy bear till it comes.

Besides it’s ridiculous. I read what is thought to happen when the end comes. Seriously a planet named Nibiru – whatever it is – crashes into earth?!?! Orbiting into the milky way to be sucked into a black hole? ALIENS?!?! How about the fact that movies are training us to be used to the fact of aliens coming to help us? Here’s a good one, God is actually an alien. Makes it hard for anyone to find truth in this, especially me.

Although, the pole shifting holds some truth I don’t want to call bullshit on that and I end up being wrong.

In other news, I think I got my computer/internet issues situated. Been a bit scatterbrained, my computer is all over the house and only late last night did I set it back up where it should be. So I’ll be back blogging rather than journaling. That’s until Friday, where I have to move my computer again and have another Oovoo night.

PS. Preston bought me us a Canon XSi, it’s kinda nifty. Nothing compared to a Nikon though. One day, one day.
