|Horse hair is very soft...but very hard to clean off of one's pants.
Ahh, where to begin? It's been ages since I've updated, it seems like. Nope, it's only been a few weeks. Today was a good day for me. My parents, my best IRL friend, and I went up to this ranch that specializes in hippotherapy (that's horse riding for therapeutic reasons, for those who don't know).
I was really nervous about going at first. I've never actually been
on a horse, so..yeah. I was a bit scared about that, even though I decided I wouldn't do any riding today. We went to the ranch and they explained the procedure to me. I would have people walking along side with me to make sure I wouldn't fall off, and they had two possible horses for me to ride.
I already know which one I want to ride. His name is Buck. He's a Buckskin and he apparently has the smoothest gait of all the horses there. He...is...a sweetheart! I let him get my scent, I pet him, and all that lovely stuff. Nothing's official yet, though, because I need a doctor's consent and all. Yeah, meh, I know. Anyways...that's my story for the day. HC out. *static sound* Current Mood: content

|There is a joke about Venezuelan kid's birthday parties...
The joke is that they always consist of all the parent's friends and not those of the child having the birthday. That's pretty much how mine went. I had my birthday party today, even though I don't officially turn 20 until this coming Tuesday. However, I swear that aside from the cheeeeeeeeeesecaaaaaake that was involved, you'd never know it was my birthday party.
For one thing, it was all of my mom's friends who came. None of mine. Second, isn't the birthday girl supposed to get the first slice of cake? I had to go out and snag mine before it was given to someone else. Thirdly...we had steak. I'm not dissing people who eat steak, but I can't eat the stuff. It's too tough for me to chew and even tougher to swallow. The good thing, though, was that I did get some books. ^___________^ And a $50 gift card for Barnes and Noble. Oh, and did I mention the cheesecake? *lol* Yes, what started as a rant turned to not-so-ranty. Current Mood: full

|And now for my random updatingness
HC is stressed right now. Happy, but stressed. Why? Well, for one thing, I turn 20 i exactly two weeks, nine hours, and 10 minutes (that's August 8th at 10:30 PM for those keeping score). For another thing, I have a lot of family coming over next week. My aunt, her son, and his best friend are coming. What's more, my grandparents will be coming shortly after that. It's going to be wicked crowded at my house.
And now for the happy part. As I mentioned before, I've been plotting to see Cats. Well, the tickets went on sale for the e-mail subscribers...and I got them! On September 9th, I will be at the theatre, sitting nineteen rows away from the stage. *squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeethud*
*ahem* Also, my Ghost Hunters dvd arrived a while back. On that note, I'm done with the 'squee'ing and updating for now. Cheers. Current Mood: dorky

|How much does HC love Celtic music?
Very much. It is one of her loves. Wow...it's been a while since I've updated this thing. *dusts off the cobwebs* Truth is, not much has gone on in the past few weeks.
Last night, my mom asked me if I wanted to go to a Celtic music concert. A co-worker of hers had to give up the tickets, unable to go because her husband was ill. Thus, my mom and I went. It...was...[i][b]awesome[/b][/i]. We had front-row-center, so we were [i]right there.[/i] Ok, I highly recommend here-and-now for everyone to go out and buy Cherish The Ladies CDs. That's whose concert we went to. Moreso, I recommend looking into the music of Heidi Talbot. She's a member of CTL, but she also does some solo-work. I got one of her CDs. She even autographed it for me ^__________^ I was so happy.
On another note- I'M GOING TO SEE CATS IN SEPTEMBER! *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!*
Found out that they are coming to Denver from Sept. 5-11, so my mom's gonna buy the tickets as soon as they go on sale. Hopefully we can get front-row-center for this show too...but I'm really not holdin' my breath. Wheelchair-accessible seats are hard to come by.
And, yes, I am a theatre nerd. That is all. *lol* HC out. *walkie-talkie sound effect*
Oh, one more thing- My mom let me order the Ghost Hunters season 1 dvd ^_______________^ I am a rather happy hobbit-cat right now. *huge hugs all 'round to anyone who bothers to read my LJ...whether they need the hug or not* Current Mood: nerdy

|Five words in my head scream "Are we havin' fun yet?"
And I say 'no'. Right now I'm sittin' in class, watching a presentation by my classmates. x.o Funtime.
I was having fun earlier, though. My sister and I had lunch at her boyfriend's house. We sat outside because it was warm. All was well and good...till it began raining. Thus, there I was shielding myself with a plate. I was laughing about it, though.
Also, I went to Borders and got a new book. *fwee!*
Yes'm, today was very nice. Can't wait for these next few weeks to be over. I'll be done for three months then. *dances*
Oh, and a cookie to who can guess what song the words in the subject come from. Current Mood: content

|A layout! A layout! My kingdom for a layout!
I need a prettiful layout for my LJ...anyone want to help me with this?
As per usual, here I sit in my WDII class, half-listening to things being said, and glancing up every now-and-again to make it look like I'm typing up what's on the screen. Something about child windows or some such thing. Child windows...sounds like a book I read once. It was called Time Windows
. Brilliant book, that one. If you haven't read it look it up. It's great if you like scary stuff and mysteries, but I won't give any spoilers....three people just stood up and left class. Weird...
I wish I had something to write. I have so many unfinished stories...I'll work on one of 'em when I get home; no way to transfer stuff from here to my home compy without wanting to break something.
Eh...well...several good things about today. For one thing, it's Fridaaaaay!
My mom's taking me to try to find the Dear Frankie dvd after school. The place we checked last time didn't have it; it was rented and never returned. *dun dun DUN*
And now, I'm gonna play some Freecell.
HC signing out. *salutes, marches lemming-like into a wall* Current Mood: bored

|Linger a while in the shade of a tree...
...because it's 85 degrees (farenheit) outside right now. Typical spring weather for Colorado.
Many apologies for not updating yesterday and breaking my habit of posting every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I didn't have web design class yesterday, you see. Instead, I went out to lunch with my sister. I paid. It was still fun, though. We had Thai food...and I ate shrimp tempura till I thought I was gonna be sick.
Before that, though, we went to the park. I did a lap around the park (one mile) in less than 14 mins. I was quite proud of myself because I did it without having to ask my sister to help me up the hills (those things are murder when you're in a wheelchair). So...yay for me. >^;^<
Y ahora, a squee moment...*SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!* 'tis time once again for the Troika US Cats tour. My mom says that if they come close to where I live, and if we get tickets, we can go see it. For me, this is very exciting. I've never seen Cats done on a big stage before. I mean, I've seen the stage show, but the stage wasn't nearly big enough. So...yeah...that's my 'squee' moment for the day.
Gah...three weeks till finals. I want this semester to be done. *cry*
As usual, my icon was made by the lovely and talented drusillatsukino. *<3* Current Mood: hot

|"Caution: Hot Water"
That is the single biggest understatement ever. It should say "Caution: This water is so hot that if it gets on your skin, it will hurt like heck and you'll hafta wrap the area in cold, wet cloths."
I go to college, savvy? There's a nice li'l cafe on campus that I go to everyday between classes. I went there to get some tea. Now, I can't reach the water very well, but I was filling up the cup anyways. I slipped...some of the water splashed out of the cup and onto my hand. ;.x Surprised and pained
, I jerked my hand back. Of course, this resulted in more water sloshing on me. I believe that my exact words as I dropped the cup and blew on my fingers in an attempt to rid myself of the searing pain were "Shit, ow." Yes, HC has a rather dirty mouth when in pain.
The ladies who work the cash registers at the cafe got a little freaked out when I came out of there with my hand wrapped up in a cold water-soaked rag. I told 'em what happened and now I'm no longer allowed to make tea by my onesies. I hafta get help from now on because a) I can't reach the danged spout and b) I had to keep my hand wrapped for an hour before the pain subsided. Eh...I saw the pain as a good thing; let me know that I didn't screw up my hand too
badly. Current Mood: silly

|Fridays rock. That's all there is to it.
I'm in a randomly good mood today. Even though I'm sitting here in web design class...one of four people (five if you count my prof) who showed up today. Today has just kinda rocked for some reason. My friend Molly is coming to spend the night at my house tonight. That may have something to do with it. We're gonna watch Rent, I'm gonna get her hooked on Sims 2, and my mom's gonna make pizza...something done only on certain occasions.
Also, I bought two new books. As I may have mentioned before, I'm one of those people who goes nuts if reading material isn't in the vicinity at all times
. Thus, finishing a book today without a backup was problematic for me. So I went to ye olde college bookstore and bought two new Cynthia Kadohata books. <3
I think another reason why I'm so '*fwee!*' right now is I've been sitting out in the sun all day between classes. It got up to like 78 degrees here, but it was kinda cloudy so it wasn't unbearable. Typical spring weather in Colorado.
That's all for today, I guess. HC signing out. Current Mood: cheerful

|Yo ho! Yo ho! A college student's life for me
Ahh the joys of being a college student. You're packed in with five-or-ten thousand other people of various ages (some of our non-trads are in their late 50's) and surrounded by the smell of cigarette smoke
and BO. You get to look politely interested when the teacher is blathering on about such-and-such thing that you don't give a rat's shiny behind about. Lufferly, isn't it?
Furthermore, there's something else that gets me. I'm in a wheelchair, savvy? So I use the elevators to get to my classes. There are days, like today for example, when people who can walk just fine hitch rides on the elevator with me. It just happened this morning. This lady in my anthropology class got onto the thing with me. There is nothing wrong with this lady's legs. She's just convinced that she's got all these medical problems that I swear are just in her head. In other words, this lady is a freakin' basketcase.
Don't even get me started on people abusing the rights to the wheelchair accessible bathroom stalls. I've had cases where every stall was available and just when I get to the bathroom, someone goes in front of me deliberately to use the only stall I can fit in. That or they go in right when I get done...even if every other stall is empty. *grah* Me no likes most people IRL.
On a sidenote, I'm using a different icon today. This one was also made for me by drusillatsukino, because I have no artistic skillz myself when it comes to icons. I'm using it because Addie looks as peeved in the pic as I am right now. Current Mood: grumpy
|Monday, April 17th, 2006|
there was a crying mood button thing for my LJ. Eh...the sad one will have to do. HC is not happy today...to the point where she wants to lock herself in a freakin' bathroom and cry. Why so upset? Because I'm apparently supposed to know how every damned electrical appliance in my house works, and not knowing can and will result in me getting bitched at.
It happened to me last night. I didn't know where the USB plug-in for the digital camera was, so my sister yelled at me for it. According to her, I should know these things because I'm going into computers. Two things wrong with that statement: 1) It was a camera. Not a PC. 2) I'm going into web design, not tech support crap. Thus, in that field, I technically should not have to know how to work the damned thing. The moral of this story, kiddies, is that not knowing things causes people to get on your ass, no matter how small a deal it really is. Also, crying yourself to sleep is not fun, and guarantees that you'll get very little sleep at all. *curls up into a ball, hiding under a blanket with her Admetus plushie*
This is HC, signing out... Current Mood: sad

|Things to do at Target
For once, I write my journal entry at home, on my own compy. Why so late in the day? Well, I was out. My friend Molly and I spent the whole afternoon together. We went to Borders. I bought two books. We went to Johnny Carino's. I got cheese sticks. :D Finally, we went to the mall. At this point, we were both hyper. Thus, we went to Target. Have you ever seen those lists of things to do at Target? We did three.
1) We had a duel with lightsabers in the toy section.
2) We had a pillow fight in the home furnishing section.
3) Feeling evil, I set five alarm clocks to go off. Needless to say, I tried to get us the heck outta there before they went off.
All in all, today was fun. Also, I made a picture on Paint last night. I'm quite proud of it.
For those who don't know, it's Etcetera and Rum Tum Tugger from Cats. Took me the better part of an hour to do it. Current Mood: hyper
|Wednesday, April 12th, 2006|
HC feels rather crappish as of late. Why? A few reasons. Firstly, I'm still sick. I'm slowly regaining my voice, but I'll still be a shoe-in as a bass or a baritone in my chorus...if I was able to actually go to practice this week. I -am- coughing a lot less, though, so that's the upside.
Crappish-ness reason numero dos-
I run a Cats rp website. On there, members are allowed to write fanfics about their made up characters. I'm in the process of re-writing a fic of my own. Not even two chapters in, I received what I consider to be an insult: My character, Aoide, was branded as a Mary-Sue. Now, I found it odd because A) I only posted a prologue and one chapter, and B) there has been no dialogue yet in my story. So why was my charrie written off as a Sue? Simply because the reviewer "didn't know who the character was." Eh...well...the fic will go on. Yep, I'm gonna keep writing it; see if it goes where I want it to go.
On a happy note, I finally have a userpic. It was made by drusillatsukino and, for those who cannot read the chibi text, says 'Aoide' on it. The picture itself is, for those who don't know, of the proverbial torch-passing when Phantom of the Opera beat Cats as the number one, longest-running musical on Broadway. Current Mood: crappy

|Update more? Yeah, I probably should.
Quicky one whilst I'm in my web design class. Much has happened since I last updated. As I've not mentioned before, I am a member of the local Sweet Adelines chorus here. Sweet Adelines= women's barbershop. We had our regional contest at the beginning of April...really. Our contest was April 1st. We got fourth in the region! >^;^< And I got sick. x.x Thus, for the past week I have been unable to speak. Worse, I cannot sing!! Those who know me well enough (in other words, drusillatsukino. One of my bestest online friends. <3 ya, Sephy!) know that singing is pretty much my life
. Thus and therefore, not being able to sing is majorly not cool. To top it all off, I've been coughing so much at night that I haven't slept. *cry* HC needs a hug...and some chocolate. Current Mood: sleepy

|Computer keyboard + H2O= -(keyboard)
*Alone at her desk in her Web Design II class, pretending to work while the prof. rambles on about stuff she already knows how to do, the HC updates types in another entry.*
Keyboards and water do not mix. I'll say that right now because it explains why I'm typing this at school. Our main comp at home is next to a water cooler, so I have easy access to water. However, I discovered yesterday that this isn't always good. I was filling up a glass, and when I pulled it back, I moved my hand too quickly. The water got onto the keyboard...and two hours later, 40% of the keys stopped working. Eh...it was an old keyboard anyways. Thus, now I hafta pay fifty bucks to get a new one.
In other news, ye olde HC needs a Cats-themed LJ icon. Will hafta check around a bit...or beg someone to make one for me. Wish me luck with that...and replacing the keyboard. x.x;; Current Mood: geeky

|In the beginning...there was a hobbit-cat
. Oh, did I mention? I'm also a huge Cats fan. My favorite Cat is Admetus, as you can probably see from the website...and, yes, I made it all by my onesies. Current Mood: happy
