most of us probably don't take UFOs too seriously.. in Roswell they definitely do..
we didn't actually stay for the parade since it wasn't until 9 pm but we got into the UFO museum before the hordes of people arrived & I got a bunch of free stuff at the airfield where several planes were on display..
just to give you an idea of how much the town revolves around the promotion of these theories, here are a few pics..
at the space-themed McDonalds (there was no way around the glare)
a local cafe
near the UFO museum (I did get shots of each panel along the building so sooner or later they'll be on my website)
and a rather humorous display
inside the museum
if I'm still around next year I want to stay for the parade since the strangest clothing additions I noticed outside the community theatre presentation were alien-shaped sunglasses & alien antennae.. those aren't so great for pictures..

|didn't think I needed any help losing my mind...
somewhere in between Elkhart General Hospital & the New Mexico Brain Institute the MRI films of my brain have gone missing. UPS has a name that no one at NMBI recognizes & a delivery date of June 12th. Tomorrow I will have proof of delivery in my hands & be on my way to the NMBI to try and discover where my brain is. Otherwise I have to pay around $100 for EGH to make new films. How annoying.

|wheee sore muscles..
got back from Carlsbad today.. saw the caverns but not the bats due to two supercells & much lightning in close proximity to the site.. saw the living gardens & the flume & tested my new digicam.. some aspects I'm thrilled with, like the macro ability compared to my old camera, other aspects not so much..
, I took this picture
for you.. also took some for beowulfalive
but the tarantula just wouldn't stand still, so those are really out of focus.. :P
but yeah, had fun.. got sunburned (of course).. would like to go back when there are fewer people infesting the caverns... Current Mood: exhausted

|and the beat goes on...
Soooo.. Dr. Nykkit was absolutely correct, in addition to everything bumbling around in my head, I have hypo-thyroidism. Which means I have to try & get up earlier so my pill can absorb before I eat. At least half an hour before I eat, and I hate mornings. But, it means that I should be able to take off some weight & maybe my hair will get some of its thickness back & hopefully I'll generally feel better all around. Wheee..

|he is the part of me I lost long ago
there are so many things to say about this weekend, so many emotions.. some amazing, some painful.. but I think it all turned out okay, or at least I hope it will
the newly-weds are perfect together.. I only hope I can be so lucky someday
27 people for Pirates III, can anything beat that? maybe trying to swing with the nykkit or meeting the baby for the first time.. or holding a priest's collar & wondering what my expression looked like since everyone else broke out in hysterics..
I slow danced with a woman, four men & a baby in the middle.. whoever took the picture must post it somewhere & then let me know where it is please.. :)
I keep learning more about myself.. maybe this whole mental issue will make it possible for me to find a way to stop screwing up my life & actually make something of it.. I just hope it won't be too late
to all of my friends who made it: I love you dearly & thank you for all the love you've shown me.. for those of you who didn't make it, I wish you had & I love you too
to those who don't really know me that well but were there for me too, especially R & J, thank you.. if someone who knows what that refers to could let me know how to contact them, I would appreciate it..
to my optimism (who will likely never read this) you know how I feel so I will do my best not to keep repeating myself.. & yes, I do know how you feel, at least I think I do.. & I understand.. just remember, I am me.. I am changing.. I am volatile at times.. and you balance me.. it's the hedgehog's dilemma.. the closer you are, the more it hurts, the more frightening it is to open up
there is so much more.. so much.. I just can't put it into words
I will say this though.. I never ever thought I would regret having to leave MN Current Mood: overwhelmed

|& I thought I was broken
if you're an animal lover you may or may not want to read this
, it shocked the hell out of most people down here.. though when college students are blowing each other away, shouldn't be surprising when violence starts at younger ages with whatever target happens to be available.. still.. gah Current Mood: pessimistic

|when deep breathing doesn't work you know you're in trouble..
apparently I have a family history on my mom's side of random, sometimes severe panic attacks.. I had my first last July, which caused my broken ankle in a rather strange way.. since then I've been having minor ones occasionally which I could deal with by lying in bed & breathing deeply for a while.. the most recent one started Friday and hasn't stopped yet.
after a frustrating trip to the E.R. on Saturday where they told me they couldn't do anything for me & I needed to consult my primary care physician (they wouldn't even check to see if I was dehydrated or if the tightness in my chest was possibly something more serious) it just got worse. I gave in and started taking the meds that my dr. gave me last Sept. for depression b/c they also work on anxiety, but they take a few days to kick in. Yesterday morning I went to the dr. after a sleepless night thanks to my general state of "I'm going to die"
Now I have sedatives to keep me from going insane or convincing myself well enough that something actually goes terribly wrong before the other meds kick in. I hate the idea of mind-altering meds but I think I reached the point where I have no choice.. wheee.. usually it's a bad sign when you feel like you have to check your pulse every 2 minutes even though you know that if you're able to check your pulse, your heart probably hasn't stopped.. so any happy/calming thoughts that people want to send my way wouldn't hurt.. just wish I knew what caused it or how to deal with it without meds Current Mood: anxious

|this is what happens..
when you bring a succulent to the desert..this
is one of the jade plants when I first got down here..
almost two years later.. at least they like it here.. most of my other plants weren't so lucky..
of course my doritaenopsis
is going on three months blooming & still trying to put out more flowers.. and the tiny oncidium has three flower stalks so far.. don't know what I'm doing right there.. :P
by the way, cadbury mini eggs are yummy Current Mood: confused

|for anyone who didn't think it possible..
6 months without male companionship on Monday, and no I haven't switched to women.. and I had several people interested but I wasn't interested in them for various reasons.. so yay for me I suppose
I broke down and bought an actual hat today for hiking.. ball caps only block sun from one direction and I hate having a partially sunburned face.. the lady tried to interest me in the "Toby Keith" version until I told her I hate country... scary thing is that the one I got actually looks kind of cute on me.. & I have a huge head, but most of you already knew that.. :P
now I need non-holey hiking boots.. must go to El Paso..
on the vicious sun topic, does anyone know of a sunscreen in the 30 spf range that doesn't smell like coconut? I'd rather not develop skin cancer while I'm here so I want something I can wear every day without smelling of coconut or setting off my allergies..
I am going to be in the theatre guild at NMSU-A.. the next meeting is Apr. 1, so I get to go & see what they actually do.. :P
they're fixing the rest of my teeth on Tuesday, then I get to focus on paying everything back.. hopefully nothing else money-intensive will pop up, but knowing my life, something strange will happen every few months or so..
-fin- Current Mood: tired

need to learn how to not give a fuck Current Mood: aggravated
|Tuesday, March 6th, 2007|
it got up to 72 today.. supposedly 77 tomorrow... I am not used to this
we're having issues finding someone new for the office.. can't imagine why
supposedly the theatre board at the university on the hill wants me, but I haven't actually gotten a call yet that says that.. they called when I was out Sunday & haven't called back yet.. we'll see
I've been walking after work.. must continue.. would like to fit in my leather skirt again before I'm 80
if you ever wonder where the military's budget goes, in two weeks we're moving a Lieutenant Colonel about .2 miles.. if the shipment is actually 16000 lbs as estimated they'll be paying us a little over $4500 for it.. how silly Current Mood: meh
