And Then I'll Collapse.  
I love my IPad. No longer do I have to decide: lay on the couch or get on the computer, get into bed for the night or get on the computer, sit on the porch or get on the computer. I can do all of those things, just bring my IPad with me, and it makes keeping up on LJ and my writing so much easier. Which means I get a shit-ton done everyday.

Yesterday, I watched the ballgame, talked on the phone with The Nephew (during innings 4-6), read 50 pages in my book, played some Wii, made a post, messed around with my icons, caught up on my Flist, wrote 1400 words, replied to a few emails, watched an episode of Southland, Teen Wolf & Switched At Birth. In one day! It probably helps that the sun is shining and the weather is perfect, which causes my energy levels to soar.

Then today I started watching the Batman dvds The Nephew loaned me and then my sister was home for the afternoon (since she had to take my mom to the dentist in the morning) and we ran errands, some of which I have been trying to get done for the last two months, like buying shoes. My dad gave me some money and sometimes I feel bad because he can get confused and then he writes me a check ‘to help out‘ and Idek. I mean, my dad can afford it, but still. So I used the money to help with things that my sister couldn't afford because she had to pay for my mom's dog to get his teeth cleaned and for my mom's new dentures. So I picked us up a new wading pool (way bigger than our others were), two new lawn chairs, a present for The Canadian Nephew's birthday (a Sit ‘n Spin - who remembers those?) and a new pair of shoes (they are purple and awesome!). I also spent today writing a letter to The Nephew (which I am going to try to do more over the summer) and found a day camp for him to go to while he is visiting us over his vacation - (hopefully I can still get him in). And I watched The Daily Show and an episode of that new show ‘The Fosters’, and made this post, and now I am off to edit my latest fic, put away my laundry, open the packages that came for my sister's birthday (ssshhh!) and watch the last half of the ballgame.

Holy shit, now I feel tired just typing that list out.

In other news, I finally changed my default icon from the one The BFF set up when she made this journal for me. My default icon is now one of my favorite shots of Alison Lohman, in which she looks enough like me to be a little freaky. She is even wearing one of my shirts! I'd been meaning to change this out for months now and I've finally gotten around to it.

I had some TV thoughts and stories about The Nephew & CO, but this all seems like enough for the moment. I'm just going to have to start posting more often, maybe, to keep up with All The Things.

I am here to remind you that Paranormal Witness is on tomorrow!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO <-- that's ghost booing

Thanks for the reminder! I knew it but then I forgot. With how weird I slept last night, it would've totally slipped my mind. Even though the Tivo is taping it, you know I like to watch it at night, in the dark and scariness of the nighttime!

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO <-- that's ghost booing

LOL Yeah, I got that. Thanks. 8)

I thought Paranormal Witness was really good last night for its premiere episode. Holy cow, scary, and it made me cry in places due to family stuff. You'll see what I mean. Tell me when you watch it!

Speaking of iPads, my girlfriend has the iPad Mini (which I talked her into buying) and I have been OBSESSED with the Sims FreePlay game. It's basically The Sims but in real time and it's entirely free unless you want to buy extra money to build stuff or whatever. I've always wanted to play a Sims game, but I never had the proper computer to do so. Now I'm on the damn thing all the time and I have to make my Sims busy so my GF can use her own iPad! LOL

I watched it! I actually watched it in real time because I was tired and wanted to get into bed and also because you know how I love to watch it in the scary dark. My reaction was thusly, "Hi, yes, listen. If you buy a new house and then you find a satanic symbol drawn on the floor and a diary of a little kid talking about sacrifices - idk, maybe...MOVE OUT!!" Idk how they can still live in that place. I mean, holy shit the chanting and the bathroom scene - what the hell, man. I am so glad it is back though!

Now I'm on the damn thing all the time and I have to make my Sims busy so my GF can use her own iPad! LOL

You and my sister! She plays my Bejeweled Blitz game more than I do and then she always forgets to plug the IPad back in when she is done so when I go to watch my Netflix episode in bed at night, there isn't enough battery left for me to get through the whole ep!

The Sims game sounds pretty cool though. I have always refrained from playing a game of Sims because I know it would be come an obsession that would take all my free time to a point of insanity.

Well, it take s a lot of money to in/out of laces. It costs a fortune for the security deposit, and some people just don't have it. Hell, if this place was haunted and I didn't have my girlfriend, I'd be stuck too!

Ack, the Sims has me completely obsessed. I have everyone from show! Dean and Cas are married and have a baby, Mary Grace. Sammy and Jess are married and they have Henry John. Bobby is married to Ellen, Rufus is married to Missouri, and Alastair is dating Meg, LOL. I just added Ruby, don't know who I'll add after that.

Yeah, I guess but man, I'd have moved in with one of those firefighters or slept on my mom's couch before I stayed in that place!

Dean and Cas are married and have a baby, Mary Grace.

Awwwwww. Excellent name! I love when my sister updates me on what her Sims are doing because she has multiple fandom households, like the Firefly peeps, and the SPN peeps and the Buffy peeps. Dean was dating Joyce Summers at one point. (actually for awhile she had like four different characters played by Jensen Ackles in her town and she was trying to get Dean to sleep with them all for some reason, but it was really funny.)

Bobby is married to Ellen,

SHIP IT!

don't know who I'll add after that.

Don't forget Henricksen! Or Jo. (both The BFF and my sister had Jo in their games and she chose to be a firefighter in both games!)

Dean and Cas are married and have Mary-Grace, who is now a pre-teen.
Sam and Jess have Henry John, who will have a birthday tomorrow and be a toddler. Jess actually got down on one knee and proposed to him! Sam also built a pool today while Jess was at work.
Bobby and Ellen are partnered and living together. He asked her to marry him but the ring wasn't good enough!
Alastair and Meg are also partnered and living together. No marriage yet.
Rufus and Missouri are partnered and living together. No marriage there yet either.
Ruby is living by herself. I use her for goal tasks and for stuff like baking birthday cakes (that take 24 total hours) for kids to grow up.
I have to build a new house before I can add anyone else. Maybe Sam and Jess might have another baby.
Right now I'm trying to save money to accomplish a goal of building a skating center for $100,000. What I'd really like to do is use that to buy a mansion and move Dean, Cas, and Mary-Grace into it. My houses are getting too crowded!

LOL, I never thought of doing multi-fandom houses. That's a good idea!

Omg, that's so funny! In every game my sis has played, Sam's girl/boyfriend has had to propose to him too! That is weird.

Bobby and Ellen are partnered and living together. He asked her to marry him but the ring wasn't good enough!

hahahaha I can just see Ellen being like, "Nope. Try again."

LOL, I never thought of doing multi-fandom houses. That's a good idea!

My sis had this place that she built that looked like a crappy motel layout and she had Sam n Dean, Earl n Randy (from My Name is Earl) and Fez n Hyde (from That 70s Show) living in it. She also built a really big place to look like the hotel from Angel and put a bunch of Angel peeps in there; Angel, Spike, Wesley, Cordy. And then she had family houses, like Bobby, Ellen, Jo and Ash (the letter two as kids) living together. But then they all interact, which is cool. It's like a big multi fandom crossover Desperate Housewives situation. lol

Edited because I forgot to say, did you watch Paranormal Witness last night? That little boy being like, "This is where the boy wants to play." Omg, little kids are so creepy!

Well, Ellen proposed to Bobby this time (with a better ring!) and he said yes, LOL. I have also discovered the secret to making money, which is to buy a $2500 fashion designer table and have a Sim design for 4 minutes. I make thousands an hour when I have multiple Sims working. I created a sweatshop at Cas' house! I have 6 tables stuck together and everyone is working in 4 minute shifts! I'm terrible.

Yes I watched PW! Not as spooky as last week, but why the hell was there a cistern in the basement, and then what the hell did they do about the bones found down there? Was the kid murdered or did he fall in? If he fell in, why the hell would the bones be buried there?? There was to much that wasn't explained well enough.

OMG, that's AWESOME. I mean, sweat shops = bad. Sims sweat shops at Castiel's apartment = AWESOME.

Yeah, PW wasn't as spooky as last week. It kind of weirded me out how when the lady found out there was ghost-kid haunting her house she almost like wanted to be his mom or something. But that little boy becoming obsessed with the ghost was freaky.

Hooray for technology increasing productivity! (I've been in that "it's finally summer and I'm not doing CRAP" mode for a week and a half.)

It really has. I used to just check my Friends List like once a week and you know how long that takes to get through then? Now I can just check it every night in between the commercial break for Craig Ferguson and it takes me like ten minutes a night. It's awesome.

(I've been in that "it's finally summer and I'm not doing CRAP" mode for a week and a half.)

You fucking earned it, woman! Embrace the dream of doing nothing!

I have been embracing the dream... but now my summer's almost a third over. Heh. Look out, vicious cycle....

I was all accomplished and shit and it felt great! But I paid for it last night when the bottom suddenly fell out on my energy level and I crashed. I always forget how good it feels to be so productive and then how much I pay for it after a few days of Doing All The Things.

I saw you are home now from your vacation. It sounded like a pretty good week off, despite the accident with your grandma. I bet the babies are glad to have you back though!
