IT HAS BEEN AGES SINCE LAST I POSTED. I finished The Demon's Lexicon. Wasn't terribly impressed. I've been baking some recently. I don't have pictures this time, but I do have a recipe for those interested. They were some pretty good brownies, which were meant to be turned into a sort of brownie-cookie hybrid, but by the time the batter was mixed I was feeling sick to my stomach and unwilling to put the extra effort into the cookie-molding bit of the recipe.

in here is a recipe )

My brother has been in town for a week, and decided that we're going to a convention. I may try to enter the fanfic contest, though I hold little hope of winning anything. But what do I have to lose, besides my self-esteem, right? WE SHALL SEE. We may not even be going, so I'll wait until that gets decided.

My uncle is also staying with us for a while. It's not so bad, except for the part where HE AND MY BROTHER DON'T PUT THE TOILET SEAT DOWN AFTER THEY PEE. I have -not- missed sharing a bathroom with dudes at all. AT ALL. *rages*

Uhhh, I had something else to say, but it's gone now.

Oh wait. I've been listening to a lot of silly pop songs about love. It makes one lonely.

Also there is going to be a garage sale here in six hours and I want to kill myself. HOPEFULLY THE RAIN KEEPS UP AND WE WON'T HAVE TO DO IT. Ugh my aunt is gonna be here. I'm a little tired of her, honestly. This wedding cruise thing is making everyone crazy, especially me. Since I'm the one trying to coordinate everyone and everything. SOMEONE PLEASE PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY.

I've been wanting to rewatch the X-Files recently.

That is all.

So my brother's in the navy. And he's re-enlisting soon. And they give a lot of money as a re-enlistment bonus. Like, $35,000.

HOLY CRAP.

Anyway, he decided that he's going to spend a bunch on us to take us all on a trip for Christmas. My brother is sometimes pretty awesome :D. Originally he was going to fly us all to Hawaii for a week or so and we would do the tourist thing.

Hawaii is ASS EXPENSIVE. Holy FUCK. Airfare alone for four people is over four thousand dollars. asdfoijaweoirjao;eidfjaowier

And then it turns out he's getting sent back to New London or wherever the sea school is early, so I convinced him that he wants to go on a cruise to Mexico.

HAHAHA WE'RE GOING TO MEXICO THE WEEK BEFORE CHRISTMAS. And spending an extra day in LA just because it sucks flying in the same day.

SDOFIJWEOIFJOIWER I don't even like Mexico but there's this PIRATE SHIP EXCURSION in Puerto Vallarta that I really want to take. PIRATES PIRATES PIRATES PIRATES.

*so excited*

(Except my other brother is an ass and said "I don't want to go to Mexico, I'm not going". WTF JOSHUA, IT'S A FRIGGIN' FREE VACATION. A FAMILY VACATION. YOU CAN STAY ON THE SHIP. IGNORE THE MEXICO PART. JUST GO ON THE EFFING VACATION. *foams at the mouth*

...The stupid part is I've spent a good week or so planning this whole family vacation by myself, and him just brushing it off like that almost made me cry on the bus. Geez, if you think you can do a better job, jerkface, then do it. I'd like to see you get a 4-star hotel room for $69.)

ETA:

Josh: no to mexico
Liz: Why not
Josh: because that is on the bottom of my list of countries I want to visit
Liz: Josh, you don't even have to go anywhere if you want to. This is supposed to be a family vacation and if you don't go then mom's going to woe
Josh: dad doesnt want to go there either
Liz: Dad said that he'll suck it up for a free vacation
Josh: I am not going to mexico
Josh: I dont care if mom woes
Liz: Geez, I should have just told you that we're going to Hawaii
Josh: yeah, that would have ended up well
Josh: I would have been worse
Liz: Did Mexico rape a kitten in front of you or something?
Josh: I'd rather not get stabbed for going down the wrong alley
