Dancing Hedges
Last night, after battling my hedge with my sister's help all afternoon, I met the girls at Luna's Fuck Work party for a little while. The funny thing is: I don't even like to say the word fuck. Not that I'm incapable of saying it -- it's just that the English language is so vast, it seems silly to use the same word all the time. Furthermore, if you don't swear often, it is far more effective when you actually do.

All of that said, I now have a bumper sticker and a tiny little tank top with the slogan. I'm not quite sure what I'll do with either! Well, the tank I'll probably wear to the bar next time I go. The bumper sticker isn't going on my car, but I'll try to find a good place for it.

Since I was hurrying off to the bar at kind of the last minute, I didn't have time to wash up after the hedge-battle. I just brushed all of the twigs and leaves our of my hair, then I slicked it back into pig-tails. My theory was: with luck, the pig-tails would look cute enough that nobody would notice how dirty my hair still was!

To complete the ensemble, I wore the most appropriate shirt I could find. It has an adorable pink bunny on it wearing a straight-jacket. Underneath it says, "Cute But Psycho". I think it went well with the pig-tails, not to mention my general personality.

It was fun; I saw a bunch of friends, and did a little bit of dancing. We didn't stay long, because we still had a euchre appointment to keep. I finished off the evening winning a game of euchre, then headed home to bed.

Today, I completed the hedge-war, and I believe that I won. My many sore muscles and the multitude of scratches on my arms and hands might say otherwise, but wait until you see the hedge pictures I will post soon! Then you will see true defeat.

But for now, given that I'm totally worn out, I'm going to try to go to bed a tiny bit early. Hopefully fun hedge pictures will come tomorrow.

Re: Random Responses

haha! "Crap" I use all the time...it's just the stronger words I tend to avoid.

Aw, bummer your shirt didn't fit. Mine fits, sorta. Although it doesn't cover much, I don't think it's supposed to.

No, we play 4-handed euchre, and only when our 4th visits from Ohio. It's mostly just a reason for the 4 of us to get together and socialize when #4 is in town.

I'm relieved to note that you are who I thought you were. :) See, while I remembered you in Katester-context, I wasn't -entirely- sure if I remembered you in renniekins-context.

Whoo! :)

Yep, c'est moi, 'tis I! I was about the same, fairly sure who you were, but a little confused because some people called you SKennedy, and I was thinking, "but isn't his id atdtsumthin-sumthin?"

Yes, it is a relief that few people try calling me ATDT, because it just doesn't roll off the tongue, does it? :) Skennedy, and before that (as chuck would attest) was Xav, generally pronounced "zavv" by my BBSin' cohorts.

For some reason "atdt" keeps making me thing of "r2d2".

If it pleases you, further verbal communication will come in "bleeps" and "bloops" :)

I agree with your philosophy on swearing. There have been a few times that I've stunned people into silence with a bit of well-placed but rarely used swearing.

The bunny is cute, and I can see how it applies ;)

Yes, me too -- it's very effective that way!

Thanks. (:

Great picture, you look cute (but about 20... you must be doing good to look so young!). Congrats on winning the battle of the hedge, it is so much bigger than you. I'll look forward to seeing your top!

swear phrases...

my 2 favorite fucks (get your mind out of the gutter dammit, I'm talkin words here):

1. fucktacular -adjective -courtesy of george carlin
2. fuck-up-chuck -quotation -as in... "damnit, that was a serious fuck-up-chuck."

Although I do like these, I don't use them all that much. My lesser shock-value swear phrase that I probably use on a more regular basis than I should is Horseshit. Although to say it properly, you have to place the emphasis on 'hors' and nearly as one consonant. It works equally as well with a dramatic pause between the two.

So anywhoo, "cute but psycho?" Wow... you have changed then, and to think I knew you way back when you were just cute, geeky and backwards (; I think those were the days before you turned 30... or maybe my memory has deteriorated to the point of it at least being really close.

Change is good though, and I think you've changed for the better. Hell, even I've changed. Scary. ;)

As for an earlier comment, yes I read through when I get a chance, and yes I could probably sign up free on lj, but their in lies the assumption that 1. I even have enough time to update my own site, and 2. I have enough time to find something meaningful to say on lj, which at this point I don't ;) Also about the only anon posts I see are from some dork who makes codie jokes and goes by MJP ;)

Btw, did you retain the implication that I thought you still retained your cuteness?
