Busy Night

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 22, 2014, 6:49 PM
Keeping myself rather busy tonight, as I'm finding myself with a bit of energy left over from the day, figured I ought to use it.  Put Captain America: The Winter Soldier into the DVD player and am casually watching.  I only casually watched it the first time I saw it in theaters with Puppetcancer, for as much as I enjoy the Captain, I do have to say I was much more enthused holding his hand throughout the film than the actual film itself.  Sorry, Captain.  You're pretty, but you don't hold a candle to the man I've got.  No hard feelings, yeah?

Okay, so I'm not watching this for Chris Evans so much as Samuel L. Jackson.  No one kicks as much theatrical ass in this movie than he does.  Again, Captain, my apologies.  You're pretty and everything, but you ain't Samuel L. Jackson.

Doing laundry at the moment because I'm desperately in need of clean jeans and sweaters.  Washing the carrying bag my sleeping bag resides in and put the zzzin' bag on my bed as a comforter, since it's down and warmer than you'd believe.  LOVE that thing.  I love burrowing into that at night, y'know, assuming I don't have Puppetcancer to keep me warm, this will do, albeit pitifully, in his stead.

But it won't have to be in his stead long, I'm seeing him next weekend and hauling him to see my fam.  The fam is excited to see him.  He's rather warmly received by the Popes, who have heaved a collective sigh of relieve with the general sentiment of, "oh, thank God, Mandi ended up with someone who isn't an idiot."  That I did, my Pope Posse, that I did.  This one's a keeper.  :) 

We're having dinner at my parents' house on Saturday night and spending the rest of our weekend doing "whatever," I may take him to see a movie or something, but we haven't solidified any plans yet.  I'm just happy to see him, I couldn't really care less what we do, I just want to do whatever it is with John.

I found a new trick with laundry, by the by...  for a total topic change.  Put some Pine Sol in the bleach dispenser (I have a front loader, I dunno how this works with other machines) and it totally takes out the majority of stains you can put in.  I salvaged my favorite pair of yoga pants using this method, not to mention my laundry smells even more clean and awesome than it usually does.  Yes.  Yes to the power of Yes.

Glad I did decide to do some laundry tonight, as it'll keep me awake for a bit until it's about ten or a normal hour in which to sleep so I don't eff up my biorhythm, that, consequently, I've finally made work.  Have you noticed a distinct lack of late night/wee hours of the morning journal entries or art posts from yours truly?  Yeah, that's 'cause I agreed to a sleeping pill from my doctor in a dose so low I'm embarrassed to report it, but IT WORKED.  I'm sleeping full nights now and have for a few nights thus far.  It took a couple of days for me to make a habit of it, but I don't require the pill any longer.  I'm actually tired, albeit at almost 9PM, but I WILL be able to sleep tonight, do so without drugs and stay down the whole night. 

Yeah, yeah, John, I hear you bashing your head into the wall, grumbling "I TOLD HER TO DO THIS SIX MONTHS AGO!"  Yeah, you did, you were right, my bad.  But I'm so glad I did this.  SO glad.  It's nice to sleep like a normal human being.  SO nice.

And let's topic-hop back to laundry, I'm also absolutely thrilled for my revived pants as well as the fact I found one of my fave tee shirts, my Infant Sorrow Get Him To The Greek concert shirt, it was buried in a basket beneath my extra bedding.  Was going to wash that so I'd have it on hand when I needed it, picked it up outta the laundry basket and BOOM!  There was my Get Him To The Greek shirt.  Freakin' YES.

Tonight's just been a good night, I guess!

God love you as much as I do, Possums.

A Little Bit Longer

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 21, 2014, 6:47 PM
I have an hour and fifteen minutes left to be here in the Salt Mines.  Here 'till 10PM.  Which is fine, I can do that, but it's dead quiet here, which I can also deal with, but it makes for a longer evening just sittind here, twiddling my thumbs.

And writing in my journal poo, I guess.  :)

Feeling a little woozy still, I was up all night last night with a migraine and throwing up in an almost spectacular manner, but I've been fine since around 9AM this morning, and since I've been keeping water and juice down since then, I figured dinner from the neighboring Subway to my office was a wise idea.

It was.  It was, but my stomach is a little unaccustomed to food right now, haven't eaten since dinner last night.  It's not an uncomfortable "I'm going to be earth shatteringly sick again" feeling, more like, "oh!  What's this stuff?  It tastes pretty good, put some more of that down here, I like that!  GIMME GIMME GIMME!"

So I ate a turkey sub to placate my stomach, and I do feel better for it, if not a little tired.  I'll make it to 10PM, sure, but I'm running on pure vapors right now and I will go to sleep soon after I return home and check for any email from Puppetcancer and/or Crowmamma, and then, with a jovial cry of "fuck this noise!," I'm going to bed, LOL.

I finished my work sketches for the newsletter coming out in mid-December (or so we think, the deadline isn't solidified at this point).  Quite self-congratulatory on account Julie liked it and gave me the green light to ink it.  (Why would you give the "green light" to a red/green colorblind girl anyhow?  Does that make any sense?  She's not gonna see it anyway, LOL!)

I'd like to pretend I'm going to do something productive, but I'm not.  It's Friday, it's 8:45PM.  There's not much I CAN do...

So I won't.


God love you as much as I do, Possums!

Wrong Shui, Love, ESFPs and INTJs

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 19, 2014, 3:25 PM
I bought a book on Amazon by Billy Yamaguchi (it's signed, too!) called Feng Shui Beauty, which is all about your elements, chi, energy and how it all applies to your physical appearance and how to balance it and look your best.  I'm giving it my 110% open mind, I'm sure I could learn something from it.

I took the little test and came up as a tie between a Fire/Earth elemental and a Fire/Water elemental.  I am most comfortable being in the spotlight, public speaking, teaching or protecting.  (Sheesh, sound like my police ambitions much?  That's also an ESFP thing, too, which I'll delve partially into later in this entry.  Stay tuned).  As a Fire/Earth, I love people but I can thrive on my own, too.  It's on my terms.  I'm excited to get my hands into any and everything, and whatever I do, I do it with fiery pizzazz.  I think I lean more towards Fire/Earth than Fire/Water, which can be a walking contradiction because Water wants to be calm and subdued, and that barely describes me on a down energy day.  Even with low energy, I'm up to something at all times. 

So Fire/Earth I am.

And I'm also a double Water element, born in the year of the boar when the sign was in Water.  That explains why I feel so keenly and intensely.  And am a Myers-Briggs ESFP.

But Feng Shui and beauty, using it to look your best and "harmonized?"  Sure, I'll give that a try.  I don't know what I believe about Feng Shui, but I'm willing to learn all the same.  Who has ever been worse off for learning new things?  I can't think of many instances where learning new things was a detriment.  So I'll learn about Feng Shui and beauty.

Like in Feng Shui, don't live in a house by a road, it means life is passing you by.

I live by a road right outside my house.  This is not good for my Feng Shui.

So I ripped the road up.

What?

I guess that's Wrong Shui, but that's MLP, baby.  That's how I roll.

Because I can't stress it enough, I miss my Puppetcancer.  I hope I get to be with him again sometime soon, I'm losing my sanity here.  He keeps me grounded.  I help him kick up his heels.  Turns out, according to Mandi's Myers Briggs theory, INTJs like John belong with ESFPs like me.  Yes, yes, we're on polar opposite ends of the spectrum; you can't get more different than the pair of us, but there is no other on this earth that I am as close to as the one farthest away from me on that particular scale.

If you want a classic example of how INTJs and ESFPs love, watch and/or read Brokeback Mountain, preferably watch it because you can see that conflicting love in action.  Jack was a textbook ESFP, and Ennis an INTJ.  Obvioulsy, that didn't work for them, but not because of their personality types.  (It was their genders, if you ask me, not their personality types.)  But Jack loved Ennis like ESFPs do; with everything we've got, and we'll show it to you while we're loving you, too.  We'll tell anybody that'll listen that we love our INTJs.  INTJs are more reserved about it, but they love just as intensely as we do as ESFPs.  The INTJ just doesn't wear it as readily on  his sleeves like ESFP Mandi Pope does.  But make no mistake, he may not parade it down Main Street, but John loves me.  Moreover, he loves me in the ways I need to be loved; in those special little everyday ways, like making sure the details get tended to, the garbage gets taken out, the dishes get done, Christmas cards get put in the mail...  (For the record, I'm writing/sending Christmas cards from the pair of us; I'll make a post later asking you to note me your address if you want a card from John and me.)  It's all in the little things that, in the end of it all, were not little at all.

Being loved by an INTJ is wonderful.  I've never been loved by anyone as I have been by my INTJ.  He thinks of everything, all the little things and is the most thoughtful person I know.  I can't tell you what he did for me on Valentine's Day this past year, but it was THE best present I've ever received.  Period.  It made me cry happily, it was so beautiful...  I wish I could say, but that would ruin its sanctity.  Plus, my INTJ doesn't kiss and tell, even if his ESFP would like to brag all over town that, yes, he's dating this ESFP, and she's proud as anything for it.

INTJ + ESFP 4ever, yo.


God love you as I do, my Possums.

Your ESFP,
Mandi Lily Pope
