first line from the first post from each month - 2010 edition )

man, 2010 went FAST. i don't even know. so much is a blur.

as for resolutions, here's what i said this time last year. let's see how i did, shall we?

things i'd like to do in 2010:
and i did, i did! if nothing else, i did the number one thing on my list. i feel good about that.
kiss someone! um... i bought a house!
start the local tourist project ...did i mention the house?
mcr tour - at least six shows maybe? okay, this one's not my fault! they didn't get their shit together until october, so. yeah. but i still managed 2 shows this year (house of blues & san diego), and have three/four scheduled for next year.
knit a sweater not exactly... but i did start a pair of socks.
run a half-marathon i did! last april. it was pretty brutal, but i did it, damn it.
keep tinkering at 'frank's so-called life' i tinkered last week, in fact! but i just haven't had the focus and time to give it that it deserves. i have high hopes for next year, after i move in. i love it too much to abandon.
read actual BOOKS if comic books count, then YES. success.

i feel pretty okay about that list. that first one kind of cancels out anything i might have missed.

and for 2011, how about...
try not to have a nervous breakdown re: debt/decisions/life
focus more on work
get back to a regular work-out schedule
knit a sweater! and finish those socks, damn it
house blog
attempt nanowrimo, for reals this time (with amended rules :p)

idk, that's about it. i'm not feeling very resolutiony this year. i'm pretty aware that getting my house in order is going to take up large chunks of my time and bank account, so really anything outside of that is just a bonus.

a year end fandom meme. i stole it. like you do. )

in RL news, i'm currently working on a house post, because you are dying to know about my new windows and bathroom tile. it's very exciting stuff, i know.
koncupiscence: (coffee coffee clem)
+ oh hey, LJ, thank for that handful of comment notifications. now could i maybe get the other dozen or so that you're still hiding? one way conversations are fun for no one. thx.

+ in much more heartfelt thanks, THANK YOU, GUYS, FOR THE SNOWFLAKE COOKIES!! \♥/ that was such a treat! and so unexpected! :D big, big love right back atcha.

+ in running news, we tried something new last night to change things up: we ran home from work. it's 2.5 miles, slightly uphill. i think the most challenging part was actually the cold (45-50 degrees). i still had to walk a little here and there, but in the second half of the run, i was determined to keep jogging for this one particular long stretch without stopping, and i did. i high-fived myself, it's true. took us about 35 minutes, start to finish, and then we got a ride back to work to pick up our cars (YAY). i think we'll be doing this one again, it was actually kind of fun. and maybe next time we'll try running back to work as well. that would bring it up to 5 miles (and the second half would all be slightly downhill, so definitely not as hard). i can dooooo this, yes i can.

+ first sentence of the first post from each month - 2009 edition )

+ it's almost the weekend, flist! i'm so excited, i have BIG plans, whereby BIG i mean: knitting! christmas shopping! laundry! massive cleaning! and then maybe some cocktailing, like you do. also, it's supposed to rain, rain, and RAIN SOME MORE. perfect for curling up with a good book and a hot mug. \o/ and what of you, flisters? exciting to-dos?

music/photo meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] morebliss

1. Open a music player.
2. Go to 'all music'/'library'.
3. Hit shuffle/repeat/randomise.
4. Find photos of the first 10 artists/bands that come up (no repeats and no cheating).
5. Have people guess who the artists/bands are.

um... yep. that's pretty much me. )

eta: just one left to be named. pretty sure i only have one flister who will know, but she's not up for a few hours. <3

eta2: aaaaand scene! WELL DONE, FRIENDS. :D
koncupiscence: (mcr: high fives)
Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this. The point is to see what you had on.

it's been at least a year since i've changed this. )

ion, i did such a happy dance yesterday when i saw that [livejournal.com profile] jjtaylor wrote frank/gerard for bandom bigbang! and it is awesome! gerard way's (vampire) detective agency. :D so much fun. i'm only on part three, though, so don't spoil me.
koncupiscence: (oh how the wine talks)
how about some long overdue meme-ing. here's that five words, word-association thing that was going around. from [livejournal.com profile] wearemany:

1. house
i've been waiting so long for one of my own, it's hard to believe that it will actually become a reality one day. i don't think it's too much to want, just a small two bedroom, one or two baths, a back yard with a tree or two to read and breathe under and a spot to grow basil and tomatoes. i want to have dinner parties again and house guests and sit around all weekend in my pajamas if i want to, guilt-free. i will purchase furniture that for once is not disposable and i won't have to worry about carrying it up four flights of stairs or making sure it is tiny enough for a studio. of course, now that i've said that, i will likely end up buying a closet-sized condo, and a fourth or sixth floor walk-up at that. well, regardless, mostly i look forward to living somewhere that isn't temporary, and creating a home. my home. with a cat! :D

2. 15
oh god. me at 15. sophomore year of high school. i had glasses and braces and was in love with nick rhodes. i failed two classes for the first time that year, english and history (i hated reading, okay?). and when i say failed, i don't just mean i did poorly, i mean there were two F's on my report card. =\ and yet i got A's in algebra II and spanish. that's just how i roll. i mean, there are RULES and FORMULAS and things make SENSE! oh well, i went to summer school and we all moved on from that disappointment. oh, and i liked this boy, but he kissed my friends. they cried over who he liked more, while he told me he liked me just as a friend. super. i had no idea what i wanted to be when i grew up. my heart wanted to be a dancer, but my brain knew that wasn't practical. looking back i can tell you i wanted to be a rayanne. daydreamed about my life as a rayanne. but i was and will always be an angela. no amount of hair dye (or tattoos or piercings) can change that. *shrug* could be worse. ;)

3. stripes
STRIPES. i'm actually a big fan of stripes, and may have, possibly, idk, made some embarrassing remarks about underage wizards and their sexy stripey cardi's once upon a time? erm. OH HOW THE WINE TALKS. /o\

but mostly when i think about stripes now, this is what i picture. i don't know whyyyyy. )
so, yes. stripes. they're swell.

(also, it was a lolarious movie once upon an 80's. harold ramis. <3)

...makes me happy. his stupid face. his everything, really. i will never lose frank sex-chicken. never ever. i love him skinny, i love him fatty. his stupid giggle makes me laugh and laugh, as do his srs bzns lol edgy ~opinions and lyrics. i love that he makes no apologies. i love that he's been with jamia since he was 19 or 20, since the dawn of mcr. and i love that he's been in love with gerard for nearly just as long. he is patient and kind and passionate. he will never be done. his body is his scrapbook, and i want to nibble on his middle. i didn't see him coming, i never would have expected it (he's short!), but i absofuckinglutely adore that doof. in short: HUMP HUMP HUMP. ♥

5. party
1. = me throwing up?
2. vegas, baby, vegas!
3. house-warming, this summer, you're invited!
5. good times, good times.

drop a comment if you'd like to play, and i'll give you five words.

woke up early this morning with the new fall out boy album playing in my head. paaaaaatrick. <3

it was too early to actually get out of bed, so i did some memes instead. and now i go in search of coffee.

movie & fandom memes )
koncupiscence: (vickyt quiet steps)
i suck so hard at these. i think i'll have a better go of it on this side of the meme. some of these are pretty obscure. some of them have the title right there in the first line. but overall, it's surprisingly a pretty good sample of what i listen to (except for that one glaring omission - hmph).

Step 1: Put your iPod on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 32 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Let everyone guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

1. hard days made me, hard nights shaped me
2. danger, in the shape of something wild
3. i search your profile for a translation, i study the conversation like a map
4. my friend michael stivey, he can not talk plain
5. i'm so money, so money
6. all our secret they are tailored trouble, draped loose now around your hips
7. i never had it, i never wanted it, i never had your beauty mark
8. in my solitude, you haunt me
9. i'm like a beggar with no luck
10. i made a river from my front door to yours, i built myself a raft with my living room doors
11. the boys and girls of millbrook are on the train from new york

12. the strangest things i've always known, it slays me every time
13. in a forest of stone underneath a corporate canopy where the sun rarely filters down the ground is not so soft
14. dead leaves and the dirty ground when i know you're not around

15. when we all had finally washed ashore, it was clear there was no one else around
16. success has its price

17. dreamt i was dead sleeping in your bed, floated up from the ground and looked down
18. closer, no hesitation, give me, all that you have
19. i took cutie for a ride in my deathcab, she tipped me with a kiss i dropped her off at the meth lab
20. cry, come to me and cry, i know i know i know it's not easy

here be questions and answers from the interview meme that was making the rounds last weekend.

questions from slightlytricky )

questions from cakeface )
koncupiscence: (scarf)
1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

2. http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.

3. http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

Now, pop open your imaging program, and create that album cover.

koncupiscence: (happiness)
an interview meme. The Rules:

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, your favorite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.
2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. Update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. Include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in your own post.
5. When others respond with a desultory comment, you will ask them five questions
