So Friday was my 21st birthday. It was fun- I went out to dinner with my family and I got some cool stuff, like another MASH shirt to add to the collection. But last night I went out with a friend to Darcelle XV, which is a really awesome drag club downtown. They interviewed everyone who was having a birthday, a completely embarassing experience, but at least they gave me a free drink to make up for it. Overall, the queens there were a hell of a lot friendlier than most; I was kind of surprised at the lack of bitchiness. There was a freakishly accuarate Bette Midler impersonator and they did the Sweet Transvestite routine from Rocky Horror. All in all, it was pretty damn fabulous.

Then we spent the rest of the night playing video games, until about 5:30 in the morning. I broke tradition by not getting smashed, but that's fine with me. And I've got plans to go out and see some strippers and lesbians later in the week. What more could anyone ask for?

I have been skipping so much school and work lately that when I die I will be sent to a special level of hell that is made up entirely of cubicles, known as the City of Dis(missed), and there I will be forced to input data for the rest of my meaningless existence.

I do sort of have an excuse though, in the form of a four-days and running headache. The main problem is that it has taken me four days to determine that the problem is not a lack of caffiene as would usually be the case, but probably a lack of water, exacerbated by the large quantities of coke that I've been consuming in a vain attempt to make it stop. Clearly, I am a deeply unhealthy person.

I don't actually believe in reading too much, but if I did, then I might be forced to admit that I have actually been reading far too much. But that would be like admitting that there is a problem, which is the first step to recovery, and I'd sooner drown myself in the Willamette than give up my reading. It's what I do when I'm not feeling well; most people pop a few aspirin, I read. Such is the nature of life.

I've been wearing costumes to work lately, technically to inspire customers, but really just because I can. (No, I'm not the only crazy person doing this; it's a fabirc store, there are others like me.) So now my bedroom looks like 10 different fandoms EXPLODED inside it. When I tried to get up this morning, I tripped over some leather armor and landed on my toy .45, beside a giant pile of MASH-ness. It's at once terrifying and exciting to see all that I've made, not to mention somewhat painful.

I think maybe there is too much craziness in this journal entry. Never mind, sanity is overrated anyway.

So it occurred to me that I haven't updated in ages, so here's a general post about life:

- Still working at Mill End. In fact, it might be more convenient for me to just move in and sleep in the Home Decor bed with the scary mannequin.

- Holly and I have gone our separate ways. I had a lot of fun with her, and it's too bad that we've lost contact, but I'm not really too upset about moving on. It was all totally anti-drama, which probably makes us the weirdest lesbians ever. But it's all good; I think we would've made better friends than anything else.

- School's starting next week. I'm doing Japanese 301, Fencing (foil), SE Asian Anthropology and hopefully Second Language Acquisition, depending on how good I am at groveling.

- The next costume is The Lady of the Lake, which I'm making for Halloween. I came up with the design myself, although I'm working from a pattern that I've modified. It's semi-historical, in that I want it to simultaneously look like something from the 5-7th century, as well as appearing slightly magical. I've been in love with the Arthurian legends practically since I learned how to read, so needless to say I'm having loads of fun with it.

And that's about it from me for now- who knows when I'll update next, there's just been a little too much life going on lately.

I've become aware recently of a strange phenomena in which men seem to be irresistibly, magnetically drawn to any conversation between women in which they aren't wanted.

For example: Holly and I were on a date in downtown Portland a couple weeks ago. This being a date, we were pretty much just interested in spending time together and talking and whatnot, which is pretty typical, however as the day progressed we were interrupted on multiple occasions by men, all complete strangers. I don't know exactly what about two women deep in conversation makes them seem approachable, but there must be something since it kept happening.

One might just assume they wanted to hit on us and leave it at that. But the same thing has happened with gay men. I went to the beach with the Queers and Allies group at PSU, and me and the only other woman on the trip were having a sort of stereotypical gossipy conversation. And once again, the conversation was interrupted just about every three minutes by a guy wanting to jump in and change the topic.

I don't really have any good theories about why this always seems to happen. My best guess is that guys are just curious about what women talk about in private, because it's true that conversation changes rather drastically when there's a guy present. But it still seems like there's more to it than that, and I'm just not seeing the whole picture. Whaver it is though, it's kind of annoying.

So I am hugely bored right now. I spent the day working (I have a job at Mill End Fabric Store now, where I spend my time straightening things and rolling bolts- and let me tell you, by now I can roll one mean bolt). And tonight I'm just bumming around doing the laundry that I've been putting off for Lord only knows how long.

Normally I'm against posting on LJ when you're bored. Why? Because most of the time, the crap we think about when bored is so indredibly dull that I feel it's morally wrong to subject other people to it. However, I actually do have something of interest to talk about. For once.

I met this girl named Holly recently and we've just started going out. She's just about the coolest person imaginable, too: we have so much in common it's almost worrying. But she's absolutely fantastic and I'm not really worried at all.

And on a final note: Is anyone planning on going to Saturday in the Park next weekend? Cause I'm considering being a bad employee and skipping work to go to it. I already missed Portland Pride, damned if I'll miss this one, too. Let me know if you are, it should be a lot of fun (especially since I won't be volunteering my ass off this year).

I am officially dubbing this the Summer of People Who I Never Thought I'd Hear From Again Reappearing Now for Reasons Unseen. I got a message on myspace from a girl I was friends with in third grade. A couple of friends have contacted me after we haven't talked in at least a year. It's really bizarre, because logically you know that people change, but you still can't quite reconcile the old friend with the new one and all the little changes seem to make a world of difference.

Everyday life seems so ordinary most of the time, that you don't really notice how much things are changing until you look back at it all. I guess that's the whole point of keeping records like these- it's an explanation of the process that gives birth to the present.

And now that I'm done feeling like the protaganist of a YA drama... I got a job at a fabric store in Beaverton called Mill End. It's almost ridiculously slow at times (I spent eight hours rolling up bolts the other day) but the people there are really cool and it sure as hell beats some of the other crappy jobs I could be doing. Plus there's a really cute girl there who's probably straight but still fun to hang around with, which helps considerably. (Because girls make everything better.)

So aside from my job and working on my costume for Kumoricon, I'm not really doing much this summer. But that's fine with me, because I could defintely use the break.

So I think I'm going to kill my dad. Maybe. But this three years and running denial streak of his is driving me up the fucking wall and I don't know how much more of it I can take.

The whole thing started on Wednesday when this guy asked me out in class and there were a whole bunch of people around, I didn't want to embarass him by turning him down, so I kind of panicked and agreed to go to lunch with him. Which was dumb. But past experience has taught me that coming out to a guy who's just asked you out in a public place is not always the best idea. I think maybe I have a phobia of causing scenes.

Anyway, now I actually have to meet with him and explain the whole thing ("you know, I'm sorry but I can't date you because I don't actually like guys; it's nothing personal, just your gender and personality and the whole male thing"). What a freaking mess.

Somehow Dad heard about it from my sister, though, and asked me about it today. When I sort of took it for granted that he would already know why this wasn't a real date, he played dumb and pretended like the last three years of me being out had never happened.

I really can't take much more of this. He can't keep living in this fantasy world where I'm just going through some kind of "phase" and will magically turn straight one of these days. I'm just going to have to sit him down and force him to deal with it. Which basically means that this weekend could get pretty damn ugly.

Wonderful. If it ends with me trying to hide his body behind Safeway and then ending up on the 11 o'clock news, you'll know why.

So this week is Pride week at PSU and the Queer Resource Center is going kinda nuts with the whole thing. There are more events going on than I can possibly remember (although hopefully I'll at least remember what I signed up to help with/perform in/whatever). Friday they're doing another Queer Prom, which starts at 8 in Hoffman Hall (same place as last year). It costs $5 to get in, and they're going to have food, live music (I think) and a drag show, so it should be pretty awesome.

Since I'm bringing some of my wigs for the Drag Show anyway, I think I might wear my Pansy wig, since short black bobs are the coolest. Aside from that I haven't figured out what to wear- Rose thinks I should do drag but I haven't got the clothes for it, and alas, I am broke. Maybe I'll put together something Harajuku-style instead.

Anyway, it should be a lot of fun, so come if you can! (Random spamming can mostly be blamed on Heather, because she asked for it.)
