The New Order Of Things
"I wasn't looking for a GENDER. I was only looking for someone to love." ~Truman Capote
The attic is dark and cold. Just how I love it. Since putting up the BIG BED we've found it necessary to make two changes to our bedroom.
Our vanity has been moved into Emily's old room and that is now our dressing room. With three of us getting dressed and made up at the same time we needed the entire room for it.
And my desk area and comic book shelves have been moved up to the attic. Emily's laptop sits next to the bed downstairs so Monday during wrestling I'll still be able to get online but for the most part all my Internet activities will now be done in the dark, cold attic where things that have no description live and breed.
Moonspiders scurry about on the ceiling.
Wallgnomes run around on my desk, dripping spit from their oversized mouths, and crawl up on top of my head to play. They like to dig in my hair to the scalp then lick it with their dry, furry tongues.
Monsterhead sits in the corner and hums the theme to Edward Scissorhands over and over.
I've dug out all my old Barbie dolls and am in the process of planning how best to..."display" them.
I won't even begin to describe what lives in the back room.
I brought Smidge up here with me but he just sits at the bottom of the stairs meowing at the door to get out. I LOVE the sound he makes!
The little metal fly things haven't found me yet but give them time and I'm sure they'll sniff me out. Plus, I'm thinking about inviting some of my oldest and dearest friends up here to live that I haven't seen since I got actual REAL friends a few years back.
There is my personal slave, Erikrump. Named after my worst enemy and owner of the infamous "poisoned dog" mentioned several times on my blog. She usually sits on the floor at my feet, bowing, and repeating, "I'm not worthy!" over and over.
There's KatieKayte, whom I modeled after my best friend growing up Catherine Montclair. (And YES! Catherine is REAL!)
There's Buffy. No expie needed. We hang out and talk and she sometimes gets frisky and likes to give me face. My mom caught her doing it once in my old room and thought I was just masterbating because Buffy likes to be invisibly when she does it so no one sees.
Damn vampire slayers.
Lastly there's the Undertaker from the WWE. He stands directly behind me, watching my back in case the wallgnomes get carried away. (I sometimes would catch him peaking at me and Buffy doing the girlygirl thing.)
Most likely the majority of my time will be spent downstairs with Lora and Emily. Whenever I'm at the Bendis Board, DarkStarlings or Myspace (My three fave hangouts.) I'll be on the laptop. But for my blog I come up here so my mind can be as free as possible.
So now we have three of the five bedrooms being used. Ours, Ashley's and the vanity room. The big bedroom on the first floor is for guests and I'm thinking about giving the last one down the hall to my sister Laura. She broke up with her boyfriend and has been feeling depressed tho won't admit it.
She'll still be living next door but this way she'll have a home here with us, too. Plus, hopefully she's reading this, I rag on her a lot but I do love and respect the wonderful person that she is.
Even though she can be a REAL pain in the butt sometimes.
This was Emily's ideal, by the way. Funny story; (Or maybe just WEIRD story.) We were laying in bed t'other night talking and we started joking about the NEXT STEP being to bring a fourth girl into our relationship. THIS WAS ONLY A JOKE!
So I said, JOKINGLY, "We'll move Laura in. She just broke up with her boyfriend and she's vulnerable."
"HEY, YEAH!" Emily burted out, "She's adorable!"
Lora and I both gave her a LOOK. The little wheel in her brain starts to slooooowly turn, and she sweetly and innocently says, "Oh, wait...nevermind. She's your sister."
We all busted up laughing at the WEIRDNESS of it.
Then Emily made the suggestion that we give her the empty upstairs bedroom so...
And just so any PERVES reading this knows; THERE WILL BE NO SEXUAL EXPERIANCES GOING ON WITH MY SISTER!!!
But if there are I promise to write about them. :p
Okay, going downstairs now. More tomorrow.
