Happy Presidents' Day/Normal Monday. I did wonder this morning why we celebrate Presidents' Day and this Washington Post article kinda explains it. (I myself prefer the apostrophe at the end--to be all inclusive and equal.)

And another link: Living on a Maine island during the winter. I actually live on the mainland, but it was an interesting article nonethless. I have only been to Peaks once, but that once was an awesome time.


I also have to share what happened yesterday at the mall. My mother and I (after I spent the whole day dreading it and hoping the Apocalypse would come, or a natural disaster or something to get me out of it because I did not want to go) spent a few hours at Macy's trying on dresses for graduation. Ugh. I went through this once five years ago, and I had hoped never to repeat it. But, life, it is so hard. I did find a kinda okay dress, but I didn't buy it because I wasn't all that into it, and I want to come back March or sometime later. (I don't want to go back a second time but I feel like I'm still carrying around a lot of holiday/winter weight that I will hopefully lose when spring comes around.)

Anyway, that is not the story I wanted to tell. After trying on a few dresses, my mother and I went to get chicken teriyaki at the food court and when we were coming back in the direction of Macy's (because that's where we were dropped off and had to return), we saw two guys holding hands. I thought they were extremely cute. My mother? Said they were crazy.

I'm choosing to believe she meant it in a kinda concerned way and not...homophobic way. But there's honestly no way to tell. And I don't want to find out.

So. I feel like I have to apologize not just to every gay or bisexual or asexual person, but to every straight person too. I'm so sorry on behalf of my mother. If it helps, she was born in a village in an European country that's still so far behind the times. It shouldn't excuse her behavior at all, but that's kinda her head space.

3 things!

+ [community profile] fandom_stocking is live! And I got so many awesome shinies! I got a Castle/Sherlock rec, a sweet, fluffy Danny/Steve story, some Steph/Damian recs, [livejournal.com profile] gladdecease wrote me a fantastic Birds of Prey/Elementary fic, a link to Greek Mythology in modern times (sooo cool, esp. all the casting picspams--Amy Adams as Persephone! And Richard Armitage as Hades!! So epic], a coupon for a drabble, an awesome Ichabod/Katrina wallpaper, an awesome ficlet wherein Abbie/Ichabod spend Christmas together, LOOOOTS AND LOOOOOTS of fantastic images of butterflies and dolphins (my top two favorite animals), a lovely piece of fanart of Kate Bishop that I can't stop oogling, two lovely season's greeting cards, [personal profile] punkpinkpower wrote me a Cam/Hunter fic that set my heart all aflutter, and someone else wrote me an amazing Andros/Ashley fic that kept me squeeing. So if any of you like any of the above, definitely check out my stocking. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH AGAIN.

+ I will reply to all of your comments on day eight of the snowflake meme, but for now, I'm pooped on commenting. And feeling so high on awesome emotions. I have to go back to school on Monday, but y'all are making this break so awesome and extra special. Also, for those of you new around here, I'm Serbian Orthodox, and we do celebrate Christmas in January (7th-9th of this year) so I definitely want to say thank you again because you've made this (mostly nonpracticing) Orthodox girl's Christmas the best. I appreciate it so much.

Here is how it works: It’ll be a weekly meme here at The Weekly Enthusiast. Each week I’ll post a new Fantastic Five list that I will answer here. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join, whether you have a TV/Film blog, book blog, personal blog. All I ask is that you link back to The Weekly Enthusiast on your own Fantastic Five list and comment on this post so that everyone can check out the other bloggers lists. If you don’t have a blog, leave your answers in the comments and get to know other fellow bloggers. Also, be sure to check out the Upcoming Topics for FFF.

1) WHAM - Last Christmas (and the versions sung by Taylor Swift and Cascada)

The video portion is not my favorite, but the song itself is so very beautiful.

3) Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You

4) Bobby Helms - Jingle Bell Rock

5) Boney M - Mary's Boy Child/Oh My Lord

May today be awesome for everyone celebrating Christmas, and a Happy Tuesday for those who aren't! (Like me...xD; I will, however, accept 'Merry Christmas' on January 7th for those who wish to express such sentiments on that later day, which I know most will not and that will be perfectly okay. I'm an Eastern Orthodox Christian, what can you do? Only in name though. xD;)

I'm just really happy it's snowing here. :D
dahlia_moon: (liz x max - snowing!)
I will say the one awesomest thing to come out of these changes LJ is making: non-paying folks (like myself) can edit their comments now. HAPPINESSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Seriously. That's one of the major things I missed when my paid subscription ran out (that and the 30-userpic limit). c:


(I'm gonna go back to playing Bejeweled now. Which is seriously addicting and turning me into a computer zombie. I had things I had to do today, stupid game, like attempt to clean my room, read a bit, and try to work on essay for re-admission to Nursing school. None of those things are getting done today, sigh.)

Happy Christmas to me!! :D

Fa la la la la laaaaaaaa....

I celebrate my Christmas on the seventh of January. (Because I'm Greek Orthodox) But... I don't get too many presents. Where are my presents?!
I only get presents from my first cousins because we live only twenty minutes apart by car. But, oh so sadly, every other relative of mine is dispersed somewhere around the world. I don't even know where half of them live, really. Does that make me a bad person? O_O

Anyway, we shall have a feast tomorrow at my aunt's house and shall exchange some presents since Mom had to work today and she didn't have time to cook anything. I just wish I didn't have to go to school tomorrow. Oh well...

Mah, I hope you all have a nice holiday for those who celebrate it, and for those who don't- enjoy the day anyways. :D

I'm a bit sad though. It doesn't really feel like Christmas here. There's no snow and it's not as cold as it gets around here. Blah. Stupid global warming!

Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating it.

My family doesn't "officially" celebrate it since it's mostly an American holiday and not a European one, but we do get full of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and apple pie. Our Thanksgiving is small. We don't make a big deal of it. It's only the immediate family and some great food, but it's what works for us, apparently.

I have the theory that we even think about celebrating Thanksgiving around here just to have an excuse to eat like crazy since my parents are health nuts and we never have any pie or any other fatty good foods here, unless it's someone's birthday.

And I hear the skiing biz has taken off in Japan. Now, I really wish I could ski and had money to go to Japan.

Happy holidays to everyone!

Hope you all have a great holiday with your families.
