Despite the fact that I can't figure out how the hell to add my own links, I think I'm moving to LiveJournal. I can be found here. I can see pros and cons for this move, but the pros (linking to friends with almost no effort, permanent comments as opposed to the tagboard, being able to change the security rating of posts) are starting to outweigh the cons (not having quite as much control over the layout) in my mind.
I'll keep this page up, though I'm not sure yet what I'm going to use it for.
I have a sandwich!

We have power!
Now going on the third time I've typed this post up, because the power keeps dying in the middle of it.
Anyway, this morning, to avoid technology withdrawl, Chris and I walked to New Morning Bakery where we killed some time eating pumpkin cheesecake made fresh by the gods themselves, and taking turns inventing and drawing strange creatures (such as a turtle/porcupine, a penguin/potato, and a mexican/cyborg/ninja/leprechaun).
Everything is coated in ice. Bushes, trees, bikes. Blades of grass have become little upside-down icicles sticking up from the ground with a little bit of green in them. Branches are shiny in that they are coated in about half an inch of ice. The bushes look like someone dipped them and their leaves in plastic. You can punch them and they are, in fact, solid. It's starting to melt now, but damn.
Came back to find the power still off, so we huddled in bed (completely innocently!). Since the power keeps going out, it is only slightly warmer in our apartment than outside. Blankets are nice.
In other news, I think I'm hopping on the Livejournal bandwagon, if only so that I can attatch my name to my posts. I like how LJ handles comments and friends, specifically...but I also really like blogger. I'm going to try it out for a bit before I move permanently.
Must go before the power dies again!
Sift your hands through broken glass
Through your shattered crystal ball and boy you wonder
If you’ll ever see again
Cause every time you close your eyes
You know they’re right behind you and you wonder
If you’ll ever live again
Hey, hey, gotta stay awake
Don’t let it slip away
Don’t think that they’re not waiting
Hey, hey, gotta stay awake
As your mind is peeled away
But they still seem to find you anyway
Do not make a sound cause they’re living all around
With their shiny eyes and their shiny minds
And they’re living everywhere
Watching every move I make
Gotta stay awake

I haven't felt like myself lately.
First of all, I've been getting these really nasty headaches, which I'm worried might have something to do with eye strain or something like that.
Second, I've just felt... odd. Spacey and out of it, or just really bored. Clumsy. And stupid. I've felt so stupid lately. It feels like I'm just forgetting everything. At work, when I try to ring someone up at the cash register the numbers get all mixed up in my head, and I find myself checking their ticket two or three times. I've been really nervous and anxious at work, too. Once I come home I'm better, but it's like I'm getting back to that point where I just can't deal with things that aren't familiar and comfortable.
I just don't feel like myself... does that make sense? It's like I can feel myself changing and becoming stupid and boring and normal, and I don't want to be "normal." I feel like I had finally gotten to the point where I was a fun person and a good friend to be around, and now I'm having all my energy sucked out of me by work and responsibilities and having to take college courses that I don't really give a shit about. I feel like I don't have any new ideas anymore,
either. I am officially in a rut.
Maybe it's just winter, but I want everything to just go away. I don't want to be me right now.
Why can't I go into hibernation?

LBCC classes are cancelled, due to THE SNOW!
Our apartment is freezing because of THE SNOW!
And I don't have to work because of THE SNOW!

We have a love/hate relationship, we do.

Rain: You are the sound of rain. You have two
important sides. There is your strong, powerful
side and your calm, gentle side. Both are very
important. Rain also reflects a bit of darkness
in your personality. It isn't bad, just shows
that along with the good, you also can see bad,
which can come in handy. (please rate my quiz)
What Sound Are You?(now w/ pics)

My keyboard is supremely fucked up. It thinks "spacebar" means "enter," and "right arrow key" means "scroll lock." It probably has other problems I haven't discovered yet, as well. Since it's very frustrating to type with a fucked-up spacebar, this will be a short entry.
Just wanted to mention that our house/apartment thing is now owned by a church.
You don't know how amusing I find this.
Who wants to come over and draw satanic symbols on our sidewalk?
