Man. I love morning shifts. I hate getting up, but I love having the day afterwards. I went out to Target to get some underthings and see what they wanted for a bookbag (THEY NEED TO GO ON SALE LIKE RN), then went to Michael's. BRISTOL BOARD 40% OFF YEAH BOYEEE. I can continue those OC stills now. Also got a big fat ol' sketchbook so let's see if I can adhere to book format again. Stupid spiral binding making me use the book backwards. :|

Next week is the Greater Grace picnic at Lower Huron. At least 3,000 people. It's a big church. I don't know if I'm working that park, but man if I do...It'll be quite a day. Just. Nonstop lines. The only thing that makes it bearable is the fact that everyone is generally really, really nice and some offer me barbecue. :V I never had a chance to call anyone on the it before, but just being offered is nice enough.

Signed up for volunteer work at the church festival. Candy booth. I think. Idk the organizer has to get back to me SO LONG AS I'M NOT IN THE POLISH FOOD BARN IT'D JUST BE TOO MUCH. There is going to be so much polka and polish sausage.

Also, can I mention what an utter treat it was to pick up Deadpool's teamup with Captain Britain? Nonsensical and self-contained hijinks, how I've missed thee. Deadpool suddenly becoming British and going "Why do I want to drink warm beer all of a sudden? Why do I want to drink all the warm beer?" had me rolling and idek why. :'| I miss Deadpool. I should have a look at how some of those 800 titles of his are going. The one with the dog looks scary in all the wrong ways, though. ANYONE FOLLOWING HIM WANNA TELL ME WHAT TO ZERO IN ON AS OF LATE?

I had chocolate moosetracks ice cream today. Chocolate with chocolate chips and peanut butter cups. I don't even want to think about what the nutritional facts label looks like NOR DO I CARE.



PS the radio totally nostalgiabombed me on my way home.

I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I HEARD THIS SONG but it was very pleasant to hear again. :>


I hope everyone is having/has had a good day, and if not, i HOPE IT GETS BETTER.

OKAY I'M GOING TO SPARE YOU ALL MY ART ANXIETIES AND TELL YOU ABOUT THE FACT THAT I GOT AMAZING STUFF FROM TY AND GRIMM IN THE MAIL TODAY. I WAS JUST. I just. FFff. It made the day.

• A beautiful blue beetle necklace (the legit bug not the derp superhero ok) that's gonna display on my shelf with my other pretties.
• An amazing con sketch from a GLC artist of Lantern Salaak. I'll let you know which dude it was when I match the face design with Sal's ever-changing design throughout the run (DOES NOBODY HAVE A SOLID CHARACTER DESIGN FOR THIS GUY????). That'll go on my wall next to my drawpretties.
• A 4-issue series from like 1993 of Americanized Captain Harlock. Properly licensed use of course--the last run before Toei said "ok fools you're done with this". It's pretty much a recap of Harlock's backhistory from the My Youth in Arcadia film tied into some post-movie plot about alien business trying to take over Earth business and Harlock and some people we don't care about being all anti-establishment. The story is actually pretty dry and MAYA IS NOW A BIRD???? but I adore it anyway. :'| These are wonderful finds. I cherish them, you guys. (TELL ME HOW MUCH I OWE YOU NOW)


Tomorrow's heat index is supposed to cap well over 100ºF. Work is going to be.........exciting. To say the least.
Ice. Lots of ice.

IT COMPLETELY SLIPPED MY MIND THAT IT WAS SUNDAY WHAT EVEN. Woops missed the early mass 11:30 HERE I COME. My brain has been so wired to "HURR HIDEOUS FIREWORKS ONSLAUGHT INCOMING" that the smell of Dad making breakfast was the only thing that made "Sunday" register in my brain. O wao.

Our operations office is now in possession of a plastic cane that my boss Jim has named "Human Resources" or just "HR". He's been threatening to whack my other boss, Al, with it since yesterday, and has sworn to take it out to the booth with us today as a means of self-defense against both Al and mean patrons. MY BOSSES ARE REALLY, REALLY MATURE YOU GUYS.

Another fun fact about working the 4th at the Metroparks: we go through daily stickers as if they were peanuts, so in order to collect all the audit stubs, we have these little boxes made with slots to put the stubs in. Faces are drawn on them. Booth 8(the awesome booth--the one I work at)'s stub box has been done up to look like former President Taft. With a monocle. He eats our stubs and gets fatter and heavier as the evening wears on. This is really mature behavior.

HAHAHA IT'S GOING TO BE SO HOT YOU GUYS I CAN'T EVEN REGISTER HOW INSANE WE'RE GONNA BE *SHOVES NEWBIE OUT OF THE BOX AND CLAIMS THE CHAIR*

So today as I was packing up to go back to the office I saw a guy on the hiking trail.......walking backwards. Just. Nonstop. The whole way. He was still walking backwards a half mile down when I drove out of the park. I...what. Lmao.

Today was a pretty good day altogether, though. I started to feel that goodness in me again, smiling and lifting my voice for everyone. Tomorrow is going to be equally intense and insane because the weather will be nuts, but I will also be working with like 5 other tollers to handle the INSANE RUSH OF PEOPLE FOR FIREWORKS AHHHH. Expect scarcity and don't blame me. Just enjoy your holiday if you're holidaying. :V

Someone at the corner is shooting off fireworks rn though and my dog is having a fit. Derp. But I can see them from where I sit so it's cool to me. It's been such a long time since we ourselves shot off some in our yard with a campfire. It probably wouldn't be the same without Uncle Mike, but he took that job in Dakota, so he's gone until his next weekend visit.

We will order in pizza to the tollbooth tomorrow and be amazing despite the heat I sweah. >8|b


And now, lalala )
noelleno: (SLAY: ok hold up what)
Oogh. I'm redefining the notion of being "worried sick".

• I think my body's telling me that dinner every day is a requirement, because...ghnnvhg. This morning is rough. Hopefully I start to feel up to snuff in a couple hours, because I'd rather not have to call off work. You only get so many hours, and minimum wage is minimum enough, y'know? I think I better start nosing around for a second job (I typo'd that dog; dangit mom and Belle stop distracting me). By the time August hits, something should open up with all the baby college kids dropping hours to focus on their shiny, new studies. I don't think I can go another winter season without income, not with the way it affected my savings this past summer.

• Mom and Dad are back from Tennessee. They brought me back sommore things for my 'holy bling', as it were--I have a silver chain loaded with medals and collected things. They got me a colored cross (turquoise on one side, red on the other) and a new medal of St. Lucy that's different than the one I already have. It has the Sacred Heart on the back, too, so it's double nice. I'd like to hope that the weight of all these things and the jingle as I move and walk will remind me of important things, especially when I'm feeling extra petty or cranky.

• Riverfest tickets. Livenation is selling fourpacks for 93 dollars. I want I want I want. I want. Avett Brothers, Justin Nozuka, and One Eskimo for 93 dollars. I'm trying to convince the parents to take advantage of this and make it our ~mini family vacation~ since I. Don't have a lot of friends in close proximity for things like this. Unless a few of y'all would like to suddenly be up in Michigan and rock out with me for a night--this would be acceptable.

• Speaking of eventful Saturdays, if I can get one off in the near future (curse you, Jim--stop plotting my entire month of work ahead of me!), the fam and I will take the long and farm-filled journey to Carey, Ohio and attend a mass at the basilica. And this time we'll actually find it, not like...that little adventure last year that some may recall. Oh, Ohio. :|

• Aaa, I am starting to feel better now. Good.

• There's footage of the tornado and damage from the storm days previously. You can see my Uncle Bob's yard at :40 in the first clip! I recognize the other neighbor's shed. LMAO OH MY GOD MY GRADE/HIGHSCHOOL CLASSMATE FRANK AT 1:40 IN THE SECOND CLIP. He lives a few houses down lmaoooo FRANK UR ON THE TV INTERNETS. Dad: "BUT WHERE'S HIS PARROT SHIRT?"
Our little town making little headlines on our little corner of the world, teehee.

• Haha, now I'm feeling a lot better.

Ah, yeah, I got some questions from the resident [livejournal.com profile] sentienttoaster that I can put in here, too, because surely you're not sick of reading this post already! but we'll hide it just in case )



And now it's music tiiiime DOUBLE MUSIC I FORGOT YESTERDAY lalala )



I hope everyone has a good day today.

noelleno: (SLAY: gonna rock it at toys r' us YEAH)
THE WEATHER IS JUST FRICKIN' PERFECTION TODAY I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE. I mean okay, the sky is that deep, saturated blue that you get in cartoons and the clouds are puffy and all Simpsons-intro-esque and there's a perfect breeze and just. YES TO TODAY.

It was frickin' animal kingdom all up in this joint, too, because driving on my way into work I saw 3 woodpeckers, and then when I went back to my car to start my rounds, there was this baby robin chillin' on my windshield (it flew away after shitting all over the window SIGH), and then at booth 1 a doe and her two fawns cruised across the street all chill like. And also there was a groundhog, but I see those mofos like every day at work ever they're just all over the place and not in the ground.

So, yes. A good day is being had here. If I could somehow will the rest of the world to have this glorious weather, you would all have it, too. Because seriously. It's happy vibe weather. And I'm like. SO SAD THAT IT'S GOING TO BE HIDEOUS AND 90º FOR THE 4TH OF JULY WORK WEEKEND AHHHHHhow will we survive.

Methinks I'll have a roast beef sandwich and...idk. Do something. Hrm.


My Uncle Bob's front yard (with all the tornado-hit trees) is now like a freakin' pick-up truck free-for-all. People around here are crazy for firewood it's kind of hilarious. Two years back when we took out the big tree in our yard we had people coming like every DAY asking what we were gonna do with the wood.
THAT'S GREAT AND ALL BUT GUYS YOU ARE BLOCKING THE ROAD I WANNA BE ABLE TO DRIVE.

Ugh you guys lmao am I ever going to not cry at church anymore. I MEAN IT WASN'T BAD CRYING BUT AT THE SAME TIME...keep it together, gurl.

Belle does not like having the car washed hum hum. But 8th graders cleaned my car for me so it was good and Belle got to see all the kids so that was good, too. SINCE WHEN WERE 8TH GRADERS SO TINY BTW I feel so ancient.

Anywho lalala )




I wanted to do splash images for my next month, but I'm kind of looking at July like...idk. I don't see it happening. It's going to be really hot and I'll be working a lot and I haven't had the motivation to draw at the booths because of the heat sssso. I think I'll do action for July. Bodies/things in motion. Maybe if I get off my lazy arse and upload Flash onto this computer ANIMATIONS?? But probably not I am very bad at that.

Just one more 1-8:30 shift and I get tomorrow off!!! To...drop Katie's car off at the shop and then go to EMU and slam papers in their face and go NOW PAY FOR MY SCHOOLING. Huuuu.

Man I got SHIT TO DO before work today hhh at least the humidty'll stay...relatively down I guess. 45% IS STILL A LOT BUT it's better that it's going down throughout the day. And booth #8 is actually pretty comfortable in the afternoon because of the sun's position kya.

And y'know what MY CREDIT CARD BALANCE IS SO CLOSE TO BEING PAID OFF.......on one credit card. orz

Supposedly there will be storms this afternoon. I like this idea, considering I'll be at work all day and a staring contest with the late afternoon sun is not my idea of a killer time! Hopefully this gloomy, overcast grayness going on right now sticks around well into my shift.

And I must decide if I want tacos or chicken for my lunch. Hrm.

My cat is being such a huge brat atm and it is a very real test on my patience. I need to keep positive, though, so that I can get through this long shift outside today without causing anyone undue bad vibes. I just wish there was some cereal or something to eat or anything, really, so that I don't have to go out and buy it. Mmmh.

The talking heads on the TV smile and smile about this heat like it's the best thing ever and I think that makes me more irate. I am not a summer kid.

Still, all the walks I've taken this year--the most walking I've done ever--gives me a chance to see more trees and leaves than I've ever bothered to notice before. And the sky is one of those absolute blues that you always want to see, so it does take the sting out of how bad it'll get today. The worst hot days are the ones where the sky looks hazy and off-white and just gross.




Alright cat keep it up and i will skin you
