11:37 am - Year twelve
I can honestly say finally, I'm closer to peace than I've ever been. The ache still remains. I want it to remain. I feel it would be a shame if it should vanish. The memories are the same which draws the ache, but the desparation doesn't seem to be there. I will always love my father with every fiber of my being, and will always miss him dearly. But there's something about me that finally feels like there's some stability about it.
I can attibute it to the fact that I married a man that shares many qualities my father had. He makes corny jokes that make me roll my eyes, yet I still laugh. He's charming as all hell. He spoils me rotten, and barely flinches when I'm being a brat(trust me, I'm actively working on that). He shares the same difficulty in verbalizing emotion while still having the ability to make me know I'm adored with all of his actions and attention....
My aunt cried to me after the wedding. Tears of relief that she truly believed I'd be taken care of the way my father would have wanted. For years, she wondered to herself whether or not she could let her guard down on me...for my father. Now she can. I think that was one of the most beautiful things anyone could ever say to me.
I miss him so much, and would've given anything for him to be there walking me down the aisle. I think now the peace may come from the fact that, I too, feel that I'm going in the direction he wanted me to go in, whatever what may come of it. I find peace in that. In all the years since his passing, I either drank myself to sleep or avoided it desparately in fear that I would drink myself to sleep. It depended on how much self-pity I felt. That's gone. Finally. And I can still miss him......for that, I am grateful.

11:54 am - Yup, we did!
Just call me Mrs. D! :)

No, I'm not pregnant!
The January reception is STILL ON! Teeny, Vegas ceremony~big, LA reception. This was always the plan, ours at least. Over half of the bridal party didn't know about it until the day of(the reveal was awesome). Muahahaha. We just hoped a couple more of our Vegas people would have made it without us having to spill the beans.

But yes, for as much of a nervous wreck that I was beforehand, it was perfect for a Vegas wedding!!!!!! LV Hilton Chapel, Warp Core Races, Bootie Club. C'mon, you can't beat the fact that BOTH of my dependable, cute shoes broke during the course of the night, and we didn't even flinch!

Pics are up on Myspace!

8:21 am - The extended version...
For those who haven't heard it through the grapevine yet., Dana asked me to marry him this past Friday night. I, of course, said 'yes' --repeatedly. Though I knew it was coming he still managed to pull the wool over my eyes about it. Sneaky bastard. ;)

This past weekend has been amazing....this past year and a half has been amazing. Though, and I hope it's all just foreshadowing of the future.

In all of my years, I have never felt what I feel for Dana. He has been the kindest, most thoughtful and most generous man I've ever been with...he ain't hurtin' in the look department, either. ;) He makes me happy, but he also makes me a kinder, more positive person. My quality of life has increased tenfold, and I can only hope I can make him half as happy as he makes me. I'm a very, very lucky girl to have in my life, and to look forward to him being there from now on.

To those of you who saw us this weekend, thank you for letting us be gag-worthy!!

8:42 am - Disclaimer
Some of you know, some of you don't, but I'm moving in with the man. Very ecstatic, very nervous.
Anyhoo, I'll be in a state of flux for the next few weeks or so, so if you see me with a dazed look on my face, or if I seem to be on edge, that's why.

6:59 pm - Happy New Year!
Just wishing everyone a kickass(but safe) New Year's...whatever you're doing. I know we're all over the map tonight, so I may only see a few of you.

I personally have had one of the best years of my life. So much so, I think it may have cut a few year off of my life ;) If the new year can even parallel it, and include all of you in it, I'll be a happy camper. :) I hope it meets all of you with generous and open arms.

I just switched up my recipe for Killer Shrimp a bit, and found the missing ingredient that made all the difference.

Soooooo yummy! Tonight I plan on having a belly full of garlic-y shrimp.

I need recommendations.

Where are the best places close by to go see snow?
I don't know if I'll have the time, but if I am afforded it before it all melts away, I'd like to know where to go in a moment's notice. I won't be riding while I'm there, I just wanna see the snow b/c I haven't in five years (the mini-storm on the way to Vegas doesn't count--I wanna play in it).

The last time I received a Get Well card I had broken my collarbone playing soccer my sophomore year in high school. The card was from my coach.

Mewee you made my week. Thank you. :)

6:59 pm - Go!Go! 7188
Now, I'm not the biggest fan of j-rock, though there are definitely a few artists that have piqued my interest - and playlist. GO!GO! 7188, in particular, has to be my top choice, by far, and something I'd actually recommend (greyface knows of what I speak). So without further adue I present to you GO!GO! 7188!!!!!!!

I haven't been to Bunker in about a month or so.
Tonight made me think that I haven't been missing much(or missing things I'd rather not be around anyway). Meh.

1:24 pm - ¿consigo un besito en la medianoche?
Man....to go out or to stay in. My time tonight is limited b/c I have to work tomorrow. Not to mention with the rain and all, tonight would be a perfect pizza and beer night with some DVD's.

I guess if I do cave and go out anywhere, I'll see some of you. As for the rest of you fuckers, be safe, but have a great night!!!

Happy New Year!!!!
