My brother randomly came through town today to drop his dog Loki off here so we can dogsit for a few days. So I was woken up with "COME HUG YOUR BROTHER" and then my mother took me shopping for hours.

We wet to Wal-Mart where they were selling guns in plastic packages. They had pink ones. You know. Fer them gals. Bitches like pink. I couldn't believe it. I want to take my camera and take photos so I can show my NZ friends the glory that is the sporting section. <---Sarcasm. Also there was someone parked in the lot with a vanity plate that said "Ma Cow". So yep. I'm in Montana now. YEE YAW.

We also went to the store my niece works at so we could get a turkey for Racism Day (my mother had to listen to my ranting all day long, wheee) It was nice to see her! She's so grown up. I remember when she was 3. /old lady

And that's it. Being with my parents is awesome though. They're both lovely and hilarious. Even if Loki seems convinced I am some kind of alien and every time I move he growls. It has to be the hair. Don't hate on fake gingers, Loki. Are you some kind of dog-racist?! He doesn't mind me when I'm throwing a tennis ball for him. Just when I am hanging out inside. Le sigh.

Also, in Wal-Mart, my mother said "I have to get some balls for the dog. He needs some balls" And I couldn't stop laughing. She was generous enough to sigh and then ignore it instead of scolding me! Ah, love!

EDIT: Fixed my email inbox finally. Turns out I accidentally blocked the images mail uses to run with AdBlock when I was trying to block an ad on the side of it. LOLwhoops. I am so smrt. At least I figured it out!

The only general shop that should sell guns is S-Mart - everyone knows this!

Animals are weirdos. Apparently my velvet skirt, the one I always wear, is terrifying to Helios today. He keeps staring at it and running when I come near him.

...Oh, Helios. He used to be so brave! Poor, scaredy baby.

They do! Because it's the room That Lady Who Feeds Us sleeps in! :D I had a feeling he'd like that :D Ariadne will probably sleep on his bed eventually too. Since she generally curls up on mine when she isn't in the cat tree or your window!

Your Walmart sounds like our Walmart, actually. I went frolicking in it the other day - there are pictures of me doing this from time to time, not any recent ones, but I go play in the toy section and apparently it's adorable. I would shoot a pink gun. I would be fierce as fuck.

Watson is terrified of my space heater that I use to keep my toes warm when I am at my computer. It makes a noise, a low whoosh noise, and he hates noise. Obviously this is my dog, because he acts just like me.

I am glad you are seeing all your people! It sounds like loads of fun! :D I am going to a rally on Racism Day and we are going to see how much adderall I have to take these days to talk without stuttering. Because I am Talking at this thing. :/

SIMMONNNNN ♥ ! You would look fierce as fuck with a pink gun. And adorable in the toy section!

Aww! You get each other! Ariadne hates a lot of noise too. And then there's Echo who isn't afraid of anything.

It is glorious! I wish I could come to your rally though. That would be amazing. You are one of the most eloquent and sense-making people I have ever had the honour to know. I have no doubt you will be brilliant.

Well, really... that's what you get for naming your dog after the Norse god of mischief.

(Speaking of which, did you see Thor? Really liked what they did with it all.)

He was asking for it, wasn't he? Loki is happy and ridiculous when I am playing catch with him but then in the house he's like "YOU ARE WEIRD! I WILL GROWL!" Border collies, pssht.

I didn't! I've been too busy with aftershocks and sleeping this year to see much of anything, which is sad. I will eventually though! Since I want to see it before I see Avengers. WHICH I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT.

How are youuuu? My mother asked how you were doing!
Lewisarmageddonriver on November 24th, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Reminds me of Kat naming her cats Isis and Osiris. What a way to make them wilful...

I think Thor is one of the best they've done; almost as good as Iron Man. From the teaser they had at the end of Captain America, it's probably also the most vital to see before Avengers. I absolutely love the look of the Rainbow Bridge, and both Loki and Thor were perfect. A really stellar effort with something that could have been sooooo hokey.

I'm doing pretty well. Working on the LAST CHAPTER of my thesis, woot! Still had to get a six month extension, but the end is in sight, so that's a huge relief. Just finished up supervising exams at ACU as well, since I didn't get any teaching work this semester. Pretty hard up for money cos of all that, especially since Erin and I are talking about a holiday to London which will absolutely eradicate my funds if I go. But we will see...
Künstliches Mädchen | ☘Lara Kelley Gallagher☘: London~Lights and Parliamentartemisofluna on November 24th, 2011 02:39 am (UTC)

Ooh, I will absolutely do that then!

OH YAY! End in sight is good. And GO TO LONDON and if you do, GO TO CAMDEN MARKETS. Of course, being able to afford it is important. Booking.com has a lot of specials on hotels and hostels if you want to book through there. That's what I did and some of the rooms were 50% off! And it tells you what things each hotel is closest too as well so you know if it's in the area you want to be. I stayed at a hotel that was like 5 feet from Euston Square underground station and it was brilliant because I could walk to Camden or Regents Park or the British Museum.

Blahblahblah London is bliss :D
Lewisarmageddonriver on November 24th, 2011 03:03 am (UTC)
Looks like we're almost certainly going; Erin found some pretty damn good deals. Flights and two weeks' accommodation for $2020 each, which I can just afford, along with a couple of other necessary expenditures I have to make before then. I'll have basically no money to spend over there though, so Camden Markets would probably be a bit of an unfortunate tease for me. I'm sure Erin would find a lot of pretties for herself though, especially since she's becoming quite enamoured of corseting.

So, you know London pretty damn well; what other things do you recommend? The Tower and the Museum, obviously... what else is good?
Künstliches Mädchen | ☘Lara Kelley Gallagher☘: London~Covent Gardenartemisofluna on November 24th, 2011 03:12 am (UTC)
THAT IS AMAZING! If Erin likes corsetting, she should go to Fairy Goth Mother. Which used to be in the Camden Market but it moved. I don't know where, but I am sure the internet could tell you! Even if you can't spend money there (I didn't! except at the record store) I think the market would be awesome for you to see. It's just a lovely place! I enjoyed just looking at all the things from so many different styles. Goth, punk, metal, indie, hipster...it's awesome. I would spend all day just wandering, not spending a thing if I could. And Camden Town is where Noel Fielding is from. You could spot Vince Noir just hanging out having a coffee! :D

Definitely the tower (it's AMAZING) and the museum (which I didn't get to see but DO IT) and I would recommend the Globe theatre too. I think you would both find it fascinating since you do the Thespian thing! Even if you can't afford a guided tour, walking through it is amazing. But the tour was so worth it. And if you like silly scares, the London Dungeon is ridiculous but SO fun. As well as the Ghost bus. If you have to choose between them, the ghost bus takes you around the city and tells stories as well as being fun. And the London Dungeon is all in one place but it as re-enactments and rides and awesomeness. So it depends on what you are most interested in really! The Ghost Bus goes over my bridge too. This is Very Important. ;)

Clare, Jess and Lisa are also all in London too so you could look them up! And if you are in to Sherlock Holmes, his museum is on Baker Street. I didn't get to Madam Tussaud's wax museum because I think it's probably silly, but there's that to, if you feel like it, though I don't know if it's your kind of thing.

And I am sure there are clubs too! Since that's not my scene I wouldn't know where they are, but I have a feeling you could find them :D

OH OH OH OH And Covent Garden has cute little shops and it's just generally a nice little area. And it has bombass cookies which are so fucking good omg.

ALSO, after you go to the Tower, walk along the embankment. It's beautiful and near the end is Cleopatra's Needle.

Basically I am so excited for you. I have always believed you would love it there. And I am SO JEALOUS you might get two weeks when I got one ;) But basically I think you will just have the best time. Eeeeiiii! Even if it turns out you can't go, definitely go some day! The entire time I was there I just kept thinking, "Lewi has to see this. HE HAS TO SEE THIS!"

There are also places like Trafalgar Square and then the West End which are just nice to walk around in. And Forbidden Planet is near Trafalgar Square I think. Or it's near Leicester Square. ...it's near a square, okay! And you should definitely stop by there as well! Just trust me on that ;)
