So, ummm... Usually I love it when the parents take off for a while and I have the house to myself, but I'm kind of not in a good place depression-wise right now, and I think being here alone might be bad rather than good at the moment. :|

So yeah, I guess I just kind of dove right into the whole here's how I'm doing thing. )

Mostly, I've just been sleeping, or watching The Owl Box. 'Cause fuzzy little baby owl butts pretty much always make me smile. Seriously, they are adorable.

Note: this post has taken me more than 24 hours to write. If that helps give you an idea of where my concentration level is at. Also, screw proper sentence structure. :-P

Booooorrrrreeeeed

No, actually... bored, frustrated, anxious, unsettled and depressed.

It's a damn good thing my tattoo is all healed now, because if I had anything flaky or scabby on me, I'd be picking at like crazy. The way some people bite their nails.

Don't mind me... I just need to voice it. It always eases up a little bit once I do that.

(Copy/pasting from my Tumblr, which - along with Twitter - is where I spend most of my time now.)
jenepherre: (Eeyore - classic with green leaves)
So with LoudTwitter down, I don't know of another way to forward my Twitter posts to my LJ here. Anyone know of any other sites/programs that do that?

In any case, I finally got my Tumblr account set up, partially, and have been posting a little bit over there. That URL is http://jenepherre.tumblr.com/

Twitter is still the best place to see what I'm up to though. It's just the easiest to post to. I like it. :-) http://twitter.com/jenepherre

Still, I'm not leaving LJ and I have auto-notifications set up for a lot of my friends' accounts here as well as some of the communities. Not that you'd be able to tell from the number of comments I leave, but still... I do read stuff here. I don't really read my f-list though. Just the stuff I have notifications set up for. Hmmm.

More stuff... blah blah blah )

One last thing:

Happy Birthday
to my dear friend
Birthday CakeSherrie!!



I love you, hon!!



Celebrate!

jenepherre: (Cmas PATD Bden Naughty or Nice?)
Doing it because as far as I know, all of my friends were nice enough (and smart enough) *not* to tag me. Ha.



a. People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blog and replace any question that they dislike with a new, original question.

b. Tag eight people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you. (Like many of my friends, I'm refusing anyway. I hate being ordered to do something that should be voluntary. But any of my friends who haven't done this yet are invited to.)



1. What are your nicknames?
Other than some members of my family still calling me Jenny - a name I haven't gone by in decades and they all know I hate it - I don't have any nicknames that I know of

2. How do you style your hair?
hehe Style? What's that? It's pretty long right now, so I put it up in a bun or a ponytail usually. I have started straightening it sometimes when I'm going to a show or somewhere where I know I might have my picture taken.

3. What's new in your life right now?
The PATD Live in Chicago CD/DVD and book \o/ Also, depression pretty bad for the past few days. This is my worst time of year for it though, so I'm trying not to think of it as a major setback.

4. How many colors are you wearing now?
Red, black, charcoal gray, heather gray, white... so 5

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
Introvert, usually. Oddly assertive around celebrities though.

6. What was the last book you read?
Does Shane Vald├ęs's "A Picture With Books" count? No? Then it was an excerpt from "Professional Guide to Diseases" or "The Merck Manual."

7. Do you nap a lot?
Not more than once a day. Is that a lot?

8. If the person you secretly like is already taken, what would you do?
It would totally depend on whether they had shown any interest in me at all. If the person is obviously happy with their current significant other, there's no way I'd try to get in the way of that.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Oh, always. Most recently, overhearing my Dad talking to my brother about me and how he thinks I make terrible decisions in my life.

10. What was the last thing you ate today?
Maple and brown sugar hot oatmeal. Yum.

11. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Too wide a range to describe here. If I shower and wash my hair and everything - 2 hours, usually. Yes, seriously. Although at least 30 minutes of that is spent in front of a fan cooling my stupid body off because it can't seem to regulate its temperature properly.

12. What websites do you visit daily?
LJ, Twitter, myspace. Often Facebook, Google search, Amazon. Some of my own sites to make sure they're running okay.

13. What classes are you taking right now? And if you're not in school anymore, what's your job?
haha Neither applies. No school and no job. And no plans right now for either one.

14. Do you like to clean?
I go through phases where I do, but usually not.

15. What do you want for Christmas?
My credit card bill paid off. Or paid down significantly. And no depression (the disease, not the mood) - for anyone - ever again.

16. What are you doing right now?
Doing this meme, listening to PATD Live in Chicago CD, thinking I need to book a hotel for my trip to LA for the final Phantom Planet show while at the same time debating just selling those tickets.

17. Who was your childhood idol?
When I was actually a child? Either Marie Osmond or Olivia Newton-John.

18. What would you do if you see $100 lying on the ground?
Just on the ground with no possible owner nearby? Yeah, I'd keep it.

19. What is your dream car?
Don't really have one. Something that gets good mileage, has a way to plug in my iPod, is comfortable and nice looking, but doesn't draw too much attention to itself.

20. Tell me something good.
I got an email from Jimmy Simak yesterday. \o/

jenepherre: (Phantom Planet - Alex Geronimo!)
I just posted my address for anyone who likes sending out holiday cards. The post is locked to a filtered list of friends. If you can't see the post and want to be able to, just leave me a comment on this post.

As for me, I'm still coping with this viral bronchitis or whatever it is. Definitely reminds me of when I was sick at the beginning of the year (the 6 week Demon!Supercold), only not as bad, luckily.

BTW, you *can* reply to my Twitter messages that get posted here. I will see your replies. Just FYI. I just find it easier to post through Twitter right now, so most of my posts come through there. I know not everyone likes Twitter, but I do. ::shrug::

I'm so bummed about Phantom Planet going on "indefinite hiatus." Sounds to me like they're breaking up. I bought 2 tickets to their final show on Dec. 12th in West Hollywood, but just found out that I can't stay at my aunt & uncle's place - they've got other people visiting that night. So... hotel, I guess.

Anyway... must send a couple of emails, then I'm off to bed. We'll have a houseful for Thanksgiving tomorrow - parents, me, sister & family and youngest brother and family. Seven adults and five kids (all 8 years or younger).

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends, and happy Thursday to my non-US friends. :-)

Yay!

Having a great time in Seattle with [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia. Had Meet & Greet with Panic last night and it was great! My photo is a little blurry though. Loads of other good photos and video clips - some full songs - from all three shows. I may not get them uploaded until after I get back home Saturday night though. We'll see. Maybe I can get the photos uploaded before then, and at least get a start on the videos.

Met some nice people at the Sacramento and Everett (Seattle) shows too. ::waves::

More later. If you have [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia friended, she has awesome recaps for all 3 RockBand shows and the Razia's Shadow listening party up in her journal. She's rad. ;-)
jenepherre: (Black Gold - Detroit lights)
Things are getting crazier. Mom is still recovering from her foot surgery that took place at the end of August. She's getting around a lot better now, and no major bandage changes are required anymore (I was doing all of her bandage changes), but she still needs a lot of help and isn't driving again yet. Just yesterday she realized I'll be gone all next week and she'll have to ask Dad if she needs help with something. She hates asking Dad for help - he's a total grouch when anyone asks him to do anything, it seems like.

So anyway, my schedule for the next little while:

Oct. 11-18 - Panic Extravaganza and trip to Seattle with [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia
Oct. 19 - Mom's birthday
Oct. 20 - Dad's eye surgery (outpatient, but can't drive for a while)
Oct. 22-24 - at my sister's; she's having surgery for a femoral hernia (outpatient, but can't lift her son for a while)
Unknown date in first 2 weeks of November - Dad's other surgery (um... being done by a colo-rectal surgeon... more serious than hemorrhoids... let's just leave it at that)
Nov. 13 - Black Gold concert in San Francisco

At least that month of craziness begins and ends with fun stuff. And there is a bit of a break, hopefully, after my sister's surgery.

I was planning to have surgery this year to get my VNS implant removed, but I don't think that's going to happen. At least the implant isn't causing me any problems. It's just weird that it's still inside my body when it's been turned off for longer than it was turned on.

Ah well. One day at a time. :-| Must get to bed. Up far too late as it is.
jenepherre: (Hug - cute hug animation)
Sorry about my message being split into 2 posts last night. I can never remember what the character limit is. Actually I still don't know. I suppose I could go count the characters in the first post or search the FAQ, but meh... don't wanna.

Mom did much better today, and did go to the doctor this morning. Her blood count was normal, so that's good. Her doctor is still a complete freakin' idiot, and didn't even think it was blood she was throwing up but it couldn't have been anything else and his idea of what it was made no sense at all and regardless, he doesn't plan to do anything about it. But at least her blood count was normal, and the episode seems to be over with, and that's what I'm focusing on. That, and the fact that I still desperately want her and my Dad to switch to a different primary care physician.

Enough about that, though. Thanks to Leah and Bex and Liz and Lidia for the positive thoughts. ::hugs you all::

On a more upbeat note, did I tell you all that Leah and I are going to the Panic show in San Jose now too? So we'll see Panic and The Cab and those other two bands on Oct. 11, 12 and 14. Whew. It's gonna be AWESOME!!!!
jenepherre: (PATD Ryan b/w funny faces animation)
I am going to see Black Gold in LA on Sunday night! Yes! I made it work. I had dreamed up a plan to go down there and see them Sunday and stay a few days visiting with my aunt, uncle and cousins and then see Black Gold play again on Wednesday night, but that was maybe a little over-ambitious and it won't, unfortunately, work out (free accommodations are only available on Sunday night). But still - Sunday night! Black Gold! YES!!!

Any LA people want to go with me?

In other wonderfully fabulous news, [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia and I both have our plane reservations for our Panic At The Disco concert exchange extravaganza! She's flying down here for the Sacramento show (Oct. 12th), then we're both flying back to Seattle for the show up there (Oct. 14th), and then I'm staying a few extra days with her. Because she's so awesome and wonderful and cool.

And did I mention that WE'RE SEEING PANIC AT THE DISCO TOGETHER AGAIN??? TWICE???? That will make 4 times we have seen them together this year. This is also incredibly awesome and wonderful and cool. :-D

I ♥ you Leah!! We get to reinvent ♥ with Panic AGAIN!!!




Other not-so-good news about my emotional health and my poor sick birdie... )

Hope everything is well with all of you, wonderful f-list people. :-)

HI! I should totally be in bed right now, but I was so close to having my new LJ layout done... I just had to finish it and get it up. Come look!

Beyond that, things are going pretty damn good. The depression is so much better than it has been in years. If only my body was in good enough shape physically to keep up with my mood... but I'm slowly working on that.

So... things going on with me, in no particular order:

  • I have to get bifocals. :-(

  • I am leaving in a few hours for Los Angeles. Will be staying with my uncle near Anaheim and going to the Panic At The Disco mini-concert on Tuesday that they're doing for the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Yay!

  • I really need to color my hair. I wanted to do that before this LA trip, but it's not looking good, time-wise. Maybe I can do it at my uncle's house. Not ideal, but ::shrug::

  • Panic's new album - called Pretty. Odd. - officially comes out on Tuesday, and it is PHENOMENAL. Yes, I've already heard the whole thing. MTV.com has been streaming it since the 18th, and there are wonderful Panic fans who know how to rip that stuff. Thank you fellow Panic fans!

  • [livejournal.com profile] darksylvia - who is awesome - is going with me to see Panic on the first night of the Honda Civic Tour, which they are headlining. This is on April 10th in San Francisco. YAY!!!!!

  • I became an auntie for the 9th time on March 10th. Another nephew, making a total of 5 nephews and 4 nieces. Baby Samuel is perfect, of course.

  • I leave for DC (my brother's place in Virginia, actually) on April 19th and am staying until May 24th. Lots of time to get to know baby Samuel and get reacquainted with his wonderful siblings and parents.

  • While I'm in Virginia, I'm taking a little over a day to go up to NYC and see Randy Harrison in Antony & Cleopatra. Another YAY moment!

  • I put up ticker thingies for all these big events that are coming up on my profile page. I'm a dork that way. LOL


  • I know there's more, but that's all I can think of for now. Not much detail on some of those things, but I have no time! All of last week was crazy busy, and until I get back from LA Wednesday evening, this week will be the same. And really, if you think about it, I've got major stuff going on from now until I get back from Virginia toward the end of May. Isn't that awesome? I actually have a life!

    Well, better get to bed. Later all!
