You know those door-stopper thingies that are on walls behind doors, usually in houses? And they are basically just springs with rubber caps? And when you hit one it makes that "BWANGgggggggg" noise?

When I was small, I was terrified of those things. As in, I would run away screaming. At the top of my lungs. I don't remember it because I was so little at the time, but my mom has it on video.

Okay, so I've been listening to Muse a LOT lately, especially The Resistance. And you know, Muse is pretty ridiculous, in a good way. They are over the top and dramatic and just full of YEAH, and that's what makes them wonderful. Well, that and their incredible talent, that is.

And listening to this ridiculous music made me want to do something ridiculous.

It's behind this cut. Hint: It involves hair )

Summer makes me cranky, because it is so freaking hot... but I think anyone reading my journal already knows that. The sun is evil and heat is bad.

The good news is that I've acquired a new thermostat, which I will be installing this weekend (provided I don't somehow electrocute myself). It's digital so I can see actual numbers instead of hoping that I have it set close to what I want, and it's programmable so I don't have to worry about forgetting to turn it up during the day. And it was only $25 so when I move from this apartment I won't miss it.

(Not that I'm planning on moving anytime soon, I freaking love my apartment. I've got Plans for this place)

As for moving to a different climate, that is my goal. Someday, I will leave Texas behind, and probably make a rude gesture at it as I leave. I am not a Texan. I have lived here since I was 3, but I am not a Texan. I do not tolerate heat well, I suffer the North Texas Allergies of Doom, I hate pickup trucks and other over-sized vehicles, and I value things like courtesy and education.

LIST:
- Yesterday I shot video of myself, learned how to edit video, then signed up for myspace in order to submit said video to a contest to meet Muse. THE THINGS I DO FOR THIS BAND.

- I like the new Doctor. It will take me some time to get used to him, I think, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to love him. I already love Amy. Girl's got her sassypants on.

- Despite how much I hate the allergy part of it, Spring is really a pretty season. I always forget how much I like the sight of new green grass blowing in the breeze before they cut it. In traffic on the highway today, I got to watch the tall grass on the sides of the highway and it was nice. Bright green grass and bright green trees and pretty blue skies. So pretty. If only I could live in a bubble for the season, it'd be great.

- Have I mentioned that I've got a third cat here? I'm keeping [livejournal.com profile] feigned_living's cat Janet while she looks for an apartment. Janet is both sweet & adorable AND rotten & evil. One minute she'll be purring on my lap, the next she'll be tearing after Hawking wanting to "play". The cat drama in the apartment is epic. Hawking and Janet are almost friends, though- today they were chasing each other around without any growling! For about 10 minutes! I was shocked. Tesla is still standoffish, though.

- Actually, Tesla is amazing. When Janet started harassing Hawking more than Hawking liked, Tesla totally slapped Janet on the top of the head to get her to leave Hawking alone. I kiiiiiind of wanted to give her a high five, except she's a cat. She's been really protective of Hawking, and it's really sweet. Tesla is such a momma cat, even without her claws. But I made the appropriate "hey I do not like fighting" noises, because that's the thing to do.

- There was a notice on my car this morning from the Arlington Police Department. Apparently they came around and did a sort of inspection of cars, to check for things that would make a car a target for burglary, and then left "report cards". My car passed. I thought it was pretty cool that they would do something like that, just as a public service. I really do like the Arlington PD. Every time I've had to deal with them (due to Ben Garcia or Beatrice Sandovall's warrants) they've been super nice. I know cops can have a bad rap in some cities, but Arlington police have always been awesome in my experience.

- I used to talk to these guys online all the time, back in 2001-2004 or so, and now they are touring Europe. I am so happy for them. That is so cool. Also, it seems they've stuck with this band name for more than three seconds, which is a new record I think!

- Actually, I'm really proud of them, honestly. They have won an NME award and apparently Morrissey went to see their show. That is super awesome.

- I am babysitting 4 of the next 6 nights.

- I really want to scrape the stickers off the back window of my car, and get new ones.

- I've had the urge to do something ridiculous for a while now. I shall use some of my babysitting funds to do something ridiculous. I'm not sure what it will be yet, but it will be ridiculous, and also epic.

- Janet is currently chasing her tail. Enthusiastically.

- I'm sleepy, so I'm going to bed.

SO.

I downloaded the Wolfram Alpha iPhone app onto my iPod Touch, because they dropped the price from $50 to $2, and hooray portable nerdery! And I was playing with it, as you do, and typed in "next solar eclipse" as it suggested. Well, there's one this summer, on July 11, visible to the Southern Atlantic ocean. Then I typed in "Next solar eclipse after July 12".

Oh hey! May 20, 2012! That's 5 days after my birthday!

Oh heeeyyy! It's visible from the Western United States!

Oh hheeeeeyyyyyyy! The path travels over northern California, actually!

What I'm saying here is that May of 2012 will feature me traveling to northern California, visiting a town called Eureka, and then viewing an Annular Solar Eclipse with my very own (properly filtered) eyes.

There's lots of pretty National Forests around there, so I hope to also pay them some visits. I love forests. Whatever my final plan ends up being, it will include forest time, somewhere.

So yeah. I'm going to add this to one of the blank spots on my Mission 101 list.

So I realized the other day that my 1001 days for doing 101 things was up sometime in February. I looked, and yup, my list expired on February 20. Oops. I did finish 32 of the things on the list, and several more were in progress, so yay for getting about 1/3 of it done. I could have done worse.

Anyways, I've decided to do it again, because why not? Having a To-Do list is motivating. Some of the 32 things I got done probably wouldn't have been done if they hadn't been on my list.

I'm setting my start date as March 26, 2010. Yes, this is three days ago, but it means that my finish date is December 21, 2012, aka THE DAY THE WORLD ENDS. This way, I'm more motivated to finish everything, because whatever isn't finished will never be done because THE WORLD WILL END*.

So, in that spirit, here is my list: The list OF DOOOOOOOOOOM )

*Yes, I know the world will not actually end on that day. Hush. It's funny.

Okay, the Muse concert was amazing. I have pictures and stuff to post later, but my dad is getting here in 10 minutes to go to the airport and fly to Michigan.

They played the songs I wanted then to: Feeling Good, Time Is Running Out (featuring a goofy hip dance from Matt), and Knights of Cydonia. And I was at the very front, on the barrier, on Chris side.

So much fun. They need to come again next week.

Have I mentioned lately that Tesla is the prettiest, most adorable cat in the world?

Because she is.

Also: My cat matches my furniture. Her eyes match the papasan, her fur matches the throw blanket thingy...

Awesome, or SUPER AWESOME?

This is why I LOVE KXT. They play all kinds of super interesting music and I've already found some music I REALLY LIKE A WHOLE LOT through them. Twitter followers will be glad to know I've signed up for Evernote, so I can send Twitter DMs to Evernote instead of sending tweets to myself when I hear a good song.

Basically, everyone should listen to KXT all the time. Local people, it's 91.7 FM. Everyone else, listen to the live stream on their website. Forever. It's the law.
