I have basically ignored Lady Gaga for the most part. I was slightly fascinated by her, but not enough to take a true listen. WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS SOONER??? She is freaking awesome.

I also have gained a new love for Dresden Dolls and Amanda Palmer (mostly because of Neil Gaiman, who I only became interested in because of Tori Amos). I wish I had paid more attention before now. At least I have new, to me, music to catch up on!

*wanders away to find stuff...*

Of course,

The CD i want to rip is in the bedroom, in my loud ass freakin' stereo while the baby is asleep. It's not so much that it is loud in terms of sound (which it is) but I am not sure which tray it is in, and the trays make a lot of noise when you have to shuffle through them (which I do, since I have no idea which tray Poison is currently in). *sigh*

I have a brand new car stereo installed in my car (thank you [livejournal.com profile] elegantdreams for the use of your driveway). Other than an attempted self maiming, it was easy. I was happy to discover that I didn't also have to replace my speakers. It sounds so good! It's a pity I have no idea how to use it...

Just kidding
Sort of...

Little Human was holding his bowl over his nether regions like a very strange looking cod piece. I thought it was funny.

I am also amused by my posting yesterday that I wasn't sure I should keep making repairs on the car, but then spent most of the day after I got it back, looking at new stereos for it. The cassette deck finally bit the dust yesterday, which means my mp3 player is useless in the car (FM transmitters are shit). I found the stereo I want...

I mean really, who thinks of storing their CDs in the big book of CDs that they have? I mean, really? Why on earth would I have thought to check there for my American Doll Posse CD? That's absurd.

I have apparently lost my copy of American Doll Posse. I know it is somewhere, but I was really hoping to import it to iTunes today.

From [livejournal.com profile] elegantdreams

All I want to know is Twelve things you passionately love.
I don't care if they are names I can't make reference to, colors, sounds, places you've been, moments you remember, a song in your head, a word, a touch, a flower you saw twenty years ago and can't forget, a letter someone wrote, your mom, your child, the idea of having a child, ... anything, everything... and please don't feel limited to 12... if you have 20, 50 or 100 I'll be more than overjoyed. And, if you don't want to post to "all of your friends" please simply hit "reply" and let me know.
I won't share, I won't repost, I won't abuse, negate, or say a damn thing about it.
I'm just feeling a bit blessed in some respects and down in others and would love the outpouring of what my friends find in life to love and sustain them.
Not a requirement, just a blessing I'd love to share. Please, if you can find the time... now hard is it to type out ten things you adore in life?
And, if I'm right by the people I've chose for friendship, perhaps you're reassess and truly appreciate that which you do love so much. Thank you ahead of time and I guarantee a formal thanks for anything that hits my inbox.

now the one thing i will change here is this, if you post to my journal, it will be public, I want to know what makes people happy, what they want and need and hope for in life, it makes me remember what life is all about, and I would love for everyone to share...however, if you feel OK telling me, and not the general public, email me at pandora.blue.girl@gmail.com, and just to be fair, I will add mine on here...


1. The beautiful life growing inside of me. Sometimes I think I am not ready, but if I waited until I was ready, would I ever have children?

2. My Mom, who gave up so much to keep me safe. She has been the person that I want to grow up to be.

3. Jonathan, who probably isn't feeling to much love coming from me right now, because of circumstances. Thank you for all of the love and kindness that you have and keep showing me (especially now).

4. My Paddywagon, which is the greatest sweetest cat. I am entirely too attached to him, and lately he has been feeling unloved as well.

5. Tori Amos, whose music changed my life. The passion that is expressed in her music makes my heart lift.

6. The color of blue that the sky turns right before the sun is completely gone. Between the indigo of the night sky, and the yellow of the setting sun. *sigh*

7. My true friends, that stick around no matter how shitty I treat them. I don't deserve their love, and yet I am so grateful for it.

8. Music in general. If it moves me, I am an instat fan. I can feel it in my veins, and wish that it would never stop.

9. Books. I love the way they feel in my hands, the way that they smell when you turn the pages, The way that you can lose yourself for a little while, and the real world ceases to exist.

10. The white sanded cove near Tampa Bay, FL. It was quiet and beautiful. Dolphins came within 20 feet of me and the water was so clear. It is my meditation space.

11. My collection of ceramic ducks. I have managed to get a beautiful collection, to the point that I don't have room for all of them. These aren't figurines, either. They are large (smallest about 12" long). I think my favorite is still my big green one that I got a few years ago from my mom.

12. Black Pearls. Not perfect round ones, but the ones that are slightly odd shaped. The warmth that they absorb from your body heat, and the way that they color shift in the light.

13. Gypsy Roses. They are an un-patented variety, but they make the most perfect big beautiful red blooms. I love roses of all kinds, but these are my favorite.

I will add more as I think of them...
My mom's birthday is next week (the 20th to be exact), and she has decided that she wants a box turtle for her B-day. I have no idea why, but tomorrow we go on a turtle quest. And we get to see Nikki!!! Much YAY-ness.
I bought my first Flogging Molly cd yesterday. I am very much enjoying it.
I have so much shit to mail out for ~M~ this week that it's not even funny.
I am tired.
I just got free tickets to Willie Nelson and John Fogerty from Live Nation. Not quite sure why... but um... yeah...

I had a really great night. I got to hang out with my [livejournal.com profile] ohno_jonathan_o, listen to Judas{EDIT:Jonas DAMMIT, JONAS}, see [livejournal.com profile] word_whore, aaaaaaand I got to see Heiko!! I haven't seen him for years (my fault). I kept putting it off. The main reason was money. I didn't want to make him pay my way to hang out with him (the whole pseudo-sugar daddy thing just isn't my way of doing things). I was also worried about how comfortable it would be. He is an ex, but he is also a great friend. I regret not doing this sooner. Jonathan was there, and it was really fun. Yay, we can all be fucked up and stupid together!! Good times...
Mmmmmmm... Sausage, Garlic, and Artichoke Hearts Calzone Goodness...mmmmmmmmmm

I am so close to having this stupid *Soundtrack in My Head CD* ready (it's a long story). YAY!!
Love you all, lots and LOTS!!!
pandorablue: (open book)
Sometimes I feel as though there's this hidden country inside me, a landscape that's going to remain forever unexplored because I can't make a normal connection with another human being, with someone who might map it out for me. It's my land, it belongs to me, but I'm denied access to it. The only way I could ever see it is through the eyes of someone outside this body of mine, through the eyes of someone who loves me.
I think we all have these secret landscapes inside us, but I don't think that anybody else ever thinks about them. all I know is that no one visits mine. And when I'm with other people, I don't know how to visit theirs.
~Charles deLint

You don't show much these days,
It gets so fucking cold,
I loved your secret places,
but I can't go anymore
~Tori Amos

Both of these excerpts touch something inside of me. A longing that I can't quite place. I'm not sure if it will ever be fulfilled, or if I even want it to.

Thanks Deb, for lending Nikki the deLint book that I am reading now, so that I could find that quote.
