Screw the wedding march!

I was listening to clips of string quartet versions of Bowie songs...
and the only thing that came to mind was, "That would be an awesome way for a bride to walk down the isle!"
I am into simple fun touches like that. Damn that's cool.

Hey yay yay yay

I like to make lip synching videos in which I have a man's voice. The Bewlay Brothers by David Bowie is my favorite song. Ever. This may change some day but as of the last few years it has not. I don't know why...

I swear some of it looked more in synch on Windows Movie Maker. Meh, whatever.

I'm really liking some of the comments on there. I enjoy the fact that other people like the song too.

Anyways. It has been two days since my last day of work and I still feel like I'm going in tomorrow or something. HAVE I WASHED MY WORK CLOTHES? Meh. But I've spent these two days being extremely and disappointingly L-A-Z-Y! I have all these plans of things to do and then when I wake up in the morning I am like, "Screw it, I want to be lazy! I will in an hour!" and soon enough it's 4:30 PM and I still haven't done much of anything at all. Oops!

SOOOOOOOOOON ISAAC WILL BE HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is the main thing on my mind really. Trying to avoid just making every blog about that... it's hard!

I just bought Guitar Hero On Tour (for Nintendo DS). I am having a blast with it! Wee!! It is kind of a silly purchase and I bought it from the crap place (Toys R Us) so I may have payed more than I could have elsewhere... but pay day is tomorrow so I'll be fine. I tried calling Circuit City and after having a lovely time with phone-robot (for blah de blah press 8 now) I finally got through to the store to talk to someone... but no one answered. I tried again.... same thing. It was kind of a spur of the moment purchase so I didn't look online or anything! Talking too much about it now...
Well actually I just looked online and I guess I payed the normal price. I just like to think Toys R Us rips you off with EVERYTHING.
Isaac is so close to being here... EEEH! You guys have no idea how exciting this is. Maybe you do but shut up. And I only have one work day left, can you believe it? I am going to try to do a bunch of stuff tomorrow (day off) and on the days before Isaac is here, I have a BUNCH to do... so I will be pretty busy up until (and probably some of the time WHILE) he is here.
(I like to use parenthases.)
I am addicted to chapstick, I've come to realize.
Not eating it, sillies.
I am so mentally prepared to just... move out. It's financial preperation that I need.

Low battery *beep beep beep*

I made little clay donuts... and then made a bracelet out of them.

Oh and check out this spider that was on the wall. I just felt like taking a picture of it.

Ahh whats goin' on?

I'm a bit confused about my debit card now. I looked at my balance online and it shows where my last paycheck was put in and then shows a drink I got at Dairy Queen the other day but nothing in between. The thing is, I know I used my card a few times in between those times. Even a couple times on the DAY I got my paycheck... but none of that is showing up. Why, man? It has been a week now...
I'm just confused because I don't know, exactly, what I have. I have no way of knowing now...

I watched that 102 Minutes that Changed America thing last night. Well I stayed up until about 3 AM watching it because I missed it when it first came on. I have no words... it's just horrifying.

So it's about 10 days now until my last day of work.... there you go.

So I was reminded of this video Celsie and I made when I heard that song at the beginning. It is totally awesome and well scripted with wonderful acting. But then I realized I put it on private since people didn't understand. But then I thought, "Why do I care?" so it is no longer private. Here it is.

We're gonna sail to the hinterland.

So I have been viciously cleaning the house today. Fun stuff, I know. Well it is nice, though, to do something other than going to work.
Anyways I took a break to go online and I have a couple things to say:
1. I got this full length mirror at work because it was pretty damn cheap on sale. Don't even know where to put it but whatever. So I finally decide to take the cardboard that is around it off. I just ripped it all off in a bit of a hurry (don't know why) and right then I saw something fly out from it. I looked to see what it was and it was a razor blade! AHHH! That could have been pretty bad if it was stuck in the cardboard and I grabbed it or something. Just the idea of what COULD have happened freaked me out.
2. I saw a little bit of this show on E! about murders and such. All I saw was a bit about these two kids that randomly decided to just shoot a bunch of middle schoolers. I think the killers were 11 and 13 or something. They are now adults have have been released from jail with a clean record, wtf? And they apparently don't show any remorse or anything. WTF??? There was no reason given or ANYTHING. Well anyways. This just made me cry. The fact that there are so many people out there that would do something like this and not give a shit. Peoples lives are worth so much and then all these fuckfacetardassbitchbastardsnessers have to come along and just end someone elses life and ruin all the lives of those that loved the person.
And even those people out there that don't kill but are judging and hating or just scaring are about as bad as these murders. Arg. Done.

It is time.

Hello there world. I got out my camera today and brought it with me on a little ride while I did ran around doing stuff but then I realized I have nothing I wish I tell the world in video form right now. And I have no interesting video ideas. It's like my mind will only allow me to be either creative with arts and crafts OR videos, but never both at the same time. Ever.
So that was FAIL.
When Isaac is here, videos shall come. We have ideas.

So what has Melody been up to? Well yesterday after work I cleaned the house a little (though one room is already TRASHED again... my craft room/Isaac's bedroom). I can't help it if I want to create without picking up my mess! And I also made this YouTube shirt. Well, almost. I just have to finish that off. I also worked on some PJ pants for Isaac. Almost done! And some other random crap here and there. Today I didn't do as much productive stuff. Just mostly enjoying my day off. I did run around getting some things I needed/wanted and babysat my nephew and blah blah blah but yeah. I just feel so much better knowing that I have some days off without any set plans. EEEH! I really needed this.

Today I cut my finger pretty deep. It happened with some thing in my car, details don't matter. But luckily it must be a small enough cut (though, as I said, deep) and in just the right spot because it didn't bleed at all but it hurt like hell, and I could see how deep it was.
And then about 30 minutes ago I was outside and I was going to water some plants. Well I filled up the watering bucket and then when I go to pick it up, I feel a pain on my finger. I let go and see a spider fall from where I was holding it and then soon after saw ANOTHER on the handle jump off. Shit, I hate spiders. I don't know what kind of spider it was but I should be fine. It just scared me and I still have the heebie jeebies.

I am blabbing on and on, stop me now.

I have lots of chores and things I want to get done tomorrow and I want to watch a movie now (still don't know which one came in the mail, so it will be a surprise) so I better stop rambling. Now.

What is their name?

What pet name do you like to call them?
Isaac. I don't use pet names or anything although I will sometimes say random things like Isapoo. Not calling him poo or anything, it just happens.

How long have you been together?
Only a year and about 3 months

How did you meet?
He stumbled across my YouTube and started emailing me. But he wasn't emailing me praising how "awesome" I am, more like just being a friend and talking. It took me a while to finally reply though.

What do you like the most about them?
I don't even know how to put it into words or figure out what EXACTLY I like the most. Wtf? Everything. I don't feel like putting the effort into this survey to be honest, that's a hard one.

What do you like the least about them?
That he doesn't always see how great he is. And how deserving of a good life he is.

What is the best thing they have ever done for you?
There's just too much.

Have they met your parents yet?

What would your kids look like if you had kids?
I don't even know. Like kids, I suppose.

What is the worst argument you have had?
All our arguments are normally resolved within the same day so I wouldn't say any of them were too horrible (though it would be nice to go without). But none have extended beyond a certain point so I don't have any that stick out in my mind.

Do you still kiss a lot?
When we are together. And when we aren't together, actually.

Who asked who out?
Since it started online, we didn't really ask either one out. We just kind of fell upon the relationship I guess after being friends. One morphed into the other.

Do you think you will get married?

Can you see yourself growing old with them?

What is the one thing you would like to change about them?
I would change his perspective on himself just a little so he would view himself better. That's it.

What do you think they would like to change about you?
I'm sure the same thing, haha.

What is the first gift they ever bought you?
I'm trying to remember what it was and I'm sure if I looked through my room at the stuff I could figure it out but I can't remember.

Do you have a favorite song together?
I don't think we do. There are different songs I think.

Which famous person do you think they look like the most?
I don't think of any famous people when I look at him though from some angles (sorry Isaac) he looks a bit like Orlando Bloom. Not kidding. Sooorry I know you don't like that Isaac. BUT LOOK!

Lindsay was the one to notice.

Would you say the two of you are a good match?
Of course. I couldn't think of a better one.

Wonder pets, wonder pets.

Hokay. So.

I haven't made any videos because:
1. Busy.
2. When I'm not busy, I am busy.
3. Not vidspired.
4. I don't know.

I have a huge list of things I want to/need to do, as per usual, and don't seem to have time to do them. Hooray, that's just grand.

I had stuff to say but my mind is somewhere else all of a sudden.
Getting a little closer to the day Isaac gets here.
A little.
I am planning on starting my etsy shop on September 29th. No promises though. I don't know what I'll have done by then. So many plans yet hardly any of it is done. One step at a time, Melody...
It's going to be pretty random though because I keep getting ideas in all different areas of craftiness. I am having problems thinking of guyish things though so it may be pretty girly at first. Who knows.

Books I've read recently and haven't mentioned:
The Queen of Everything by Deb Caletti. Picked it up at the Goodwill for a buck or something. It was a pretty fast read (well, I mostly just read on my breaks at work so as fast as you can get through a book that way...) but incredibly predictable. Nothing surprising. Just a book.
A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. I don't care if he was trying to pass it up as a true story but that it is in fact almost completely fabricated. It was really good. I got this one at a different second-hand place for a dollar also. I really liked it.
And now I finally gave in and am reading Twilight. I am only half-way through (because, as I said, I only read on my breaks at work) but it really is as good as everyone makes it out to be. I keep thinking about it, ahhh.......

Yeah there you go.

Here's something I've painted.

I know it looks a bit like poo but I did it within a few hours. I'm still not completely used to oils. And I suck at people. Noses just kill me, which is why mine doesn't look like my nose. I had to redo it like 200000 times.
