How did you choose your LiveJournal username? Is there an interesting story behind it?
My username is short for Hobbit Ribbit Baconbit. It was the nickname given to me in high school by a dear friend, and it took, such that there are people from my school who only knew me by that name, and not my actual name :) I am proud of this nickname, because it's so insanely appropriate :)

This one seems intersting....

The word Meme:
Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!" and I will give you five words that remind me of you. Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

And these are the words that lissa_dora came up with for me...Read more...Collapse )

Merry Christmas :)

May it be peaceful and happy for all.

Haaaaiiiiirrr!!! Grow it, show it.....

I've been looking up info about henna, thanks to tearsinger and ecwoodburn. It looks like a wonderful option, with better reults, and I'm very interested in trying it. I've never used henna before, and have no idea how to use it, or even where to buy it. Where should I look? Anything I need to know about as far as handling it, how long to leave it in so it looks good and saturated without being overdone, if fine hair takes it quicker than thick hair, ect, ect, ect...

Yay hair henna fun :)

*memo to me...get a snowy icon*


I don't have to work today, do dah, do dah :) YAY snowday :)

To do:
- quick Weggies run
- get kids boots
- pick up kitchen
- VEG!!!

Oooh, the Autumn dragon is very pretty, all grown up :)

OMG it can't be....

It's been a year since that snowy day in a maternity ward, having the honor of watching some dear friends bring their first child into the world :)

Happy Birthday Liam :)



Everyone in my house who is not me is sick.

This is so not cool.

About the only thing good about it is that they all might just have it out of their systems in time for Christmas break.

*going to go cry now*
*now understands the meaning of 'bone tired'*



My final grade for Psychology is a 94. This makes me VERY happy :)

Have some dragons :)

Writer's Block: Set Sail

Spike and Angel, President Roslin and Gaius Baltar, Harry and Hermione—shippers often find pairings that the original author might have overlooked. What coupling of fictional characters would you most like to see?
Dr. House and Dr. Wilson :)

Writer's Block: Untimely Passing

RIP John Lennon. The list of sudden and unexpected celebrity deaths is long—Princess Di, Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, Marilyn Monroe, and many more. Which one affected you the most on an emotional level?
OK, I just asked a similar question last night on my flist...were you all spying on me?!?!? :)

My too-soon-lost person is Jim Henson. He was such a unique spirit, and used an under-utilized medium to share his thoughts and dreams, and did it so beautifully. I would have loved to have seen what else he had in mind, what other things his Kermit had to say. The world lost someone truly amazing when he left.

Shameless dragon plugs

Love me, love my dragons PLEASE!!!!!

There will be actual content soon, once my computer comes out of it's latest coma. Suffice it to say I survived Thursday with my brains intact...thank God.

Tech question....

What does it mean when your computer goes into sleep mode for no apparent reason, and won't wake up until the battery has run out?



I is back on!!!! YAY LAPTOP!!!!!

I hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Ours was pretty good. My in laws came over for dinner. This required massive cleaning of our apartment on Wednesday. It was worth it, if for no other reason than that clean-house feeling. Friday was spent with friends in Buffalo, Saturday was spent with friends here, and today was spent with friends not seen in a long time :) A tiring but good weekend, for sure.

Now it's 3 solid weeks til Christmas break, and 2 weeks left til this semester is done :)

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

You will all aid and abet in my little addiction!!!! *evil cackle* But only if you want to :) I keep telling myself that there are worse addictions....


School is not a fun place to be when having Intestinal Virus of Doom :/ It was good that I came, though....there was a crisis. I averted it, because I'm good.

*sigh* I suppose I ought to go to work tomorrow. It's hard when you have/take time off to get back into work again...moreso, it seems, as I get older. I fear to see what I'll be like after Christmas break when I have 2 whole weeks off.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

*love and hugs and begs for clickies*

Still not feeling terribly verbal, but still alive.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

*loves and hugs*


Not feeling verbal, so....


I voted.

I studied.

It's GORGEOUS outside :)

It's a good day.


I sleepy.

This week is promising to be busy...chiropractor today, voting and school tomorrow, parent conference Wednesday, class Thursday, shopping Friday...and yes, work. Tests in both classes this week, too. Hopefully I'll hear by Friday the results of the biopsy.

*pencils in 'dying' on Saturday*

I said I wouldn't do this til I got a new computer, but I couldn't resist. Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

*doesn't want to study, and yet...*

Oh, I almost forgot...

...local or not, if you can see this and would like to trick or treat with my family tomorrow night, you are WELCOME!!! Be at my place by 6...but no earlier than 5, pretty please :)

Still in pain, and suddenly scared that something will be found. Stupid emo chick.

Waves of pain

I just had an endomitrial biopsy. It hurts in ways that I can't articulate right now...waiting for the rather large dose of ibprofen to kick in and make it all stop.

I don't know if I'll make it through school, but I'll try. Work may not happen tomorrow.

Thank you all from the bottom of my ( and my kids ) heart for growing up our dragons :) Two girls and a boy :) They will be named as soon as I share the happy news with the boys.


An apparent day of Yay!

Wow, I really missed folks.

My modem is being doinky...or something, and I can't get online from home. Yay school!

I had the flu, though certainly not the worst ever. Yay vitamin C!!

Proof that there is a God...I have a migraine and didn't study as well as normal for a particularly hard chapter. Teacher gives us an open book test tonight :) Yay God!!!

$2200 later, and our car runs much, much better. Yay student loan!!!!

I know we can't see them from home right now, but please clickie!!!
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

Wow, I missed you all :)
I just saw a gorgeous movie called "Mrs. Brown" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mrs_Brown ). Wow...heart-breaking and lovely. I never knew Billy Connolly could be a dramatic actor; what a revelation. We already knew Dame Judi Dench was brilliant.

I highly recommend this, if you've not seen it before.



I was hoping to at least get into November before it happened.

Stupid flu.

My wonderful husband has gone to get ice cream and ginger ale for me....couldn't tell you why I want those things, but I do...and the boys are chilling out. Even though they've had flu shots, I don't want to chance it by being too close to them.

Stupid flu.

I suppose I ought to make a grocery list. Tomorrow is car maintainance day, so shopping isn't happening then. Just as well, I suppose.

Stupid flu.

Tomorrow I will be vegging out in front of the tv because that will likely be all I'm good for.


There will be bread!!!

I am desiring to bake! There will be pumpkin bread and blueberry bread :) This will happen in between loads of laundry. I made sauce earlier...with meatballs and sausage. I guess I'm feeling domestic today.

In the last 2 days, I've had just 1 diet soda. I already feel better.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
The boys are endevoring to have one of each type of dragon, so we found a white :) We also bred Liefstone and Stirling Bleu :) It will be neat to see if we get some surviving offspring :)
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

I haven't totally woken up yet. I hope this isn't an indication of how my day will go :/

As predicted, about 10 people showed up for class last night. It did cross my mind to not go, but then, it bothers me. If you pay for it, I feel you ought to go. So I did. I kinda like it when it's smaller numbers...more gets covered, silliness ensues. I <3 my psych professor :)

Ok, very touchy, very cranky...*looks at calendar*...yeah, it's about that time. Sorry in advance :/


daily snippets

Laundry laundry, never ending, washing til the end of time...there are 3 loads of shirts hanging out to dry ( thank God for the warm weather!! ) and another 4 loads of towels and blankets to do yet :/ I swear, the stuff reproduces if you let it sit long enough.

I just found out that my mother is on Facebook!! Talk about worlds colliding.

Tomorrow, I get to have an MMR shot because NO ONE can find record of me having the correct dosage. How insane is this??!? How on earth did I get through public school without this being noticed??

The windows are all opened and the air smells so good and earthy and leafy. I can't wait to go get pumpkins and cider!! I feel like the boys, all excited and young :) From the first of September to New Years is my favorite time of year...new school year, autumn changes, Thanksgiving, the first snow fall, Christmas....so much happening that harkens back to happy childhood memories.

Help our dragons grow!!!
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

( Brandon just informed me that I hung 50 shirts outside....and he's right. Ouch. )

Today I must...read 2 chapters in Psychology.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
Ack!!! Help my Shandihaar not die!!!
Dakota has just informed me that his dragon is keeping watch over the little ones so they don't get eaten :) It's sweet.

There is a mountain of books in my hallway that Matt and the kids wish to give away. It's predominantly childrens' books....is anyone wanting books? I get to sort through them now.

*is happy to be sitting!*

YAAAAAYYYYYY!!!!!! Dakota's dragon is all grown up!!! Thank you all for the clicking!! Please help the others grow!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
*giggles* Look at the little one!! It looks like a tiny Yoda :)

Today, we cleaned. And cleaned and cleaned and cleaned some more. We picked up the whole apartment, vacced the whole apartment, rearranged the boys' room ( and boy does it look awesome! ), and put up curtains in the living room. It's already helping me feel calmer, not seeing all the clutter. It smells better, it looks better...its' good. I'll appreciate it all the more when my knees and hips stop hurting. The kids did a fabulous job, truly...I'm proud of the work they did :)

And because you can never do it enough...Collapse )

Time to get the laundry...
