Please let me introduce – the Interruption

Posted in Big Changes, Happy News at 3:45 pm by wangeli

So, as usual, posts have been erratic. I’m always planning to post on a regular basis, but life has this way of throwing a wrench in my plans. Right now, one of my wrenches is named Belladonna – Bella for short. She’s almost 4 months old, black and white and shows signs of severe ADD and mental retardation. Tye swears up and down that she’s a normal kitten and that’s what you do when you are that young. All I know is that she needs constant watching…. and that if there’s ever silence in the apartment then she’s probably breaking something, stuck in something or asleep. And lately, it seems like there is a lot of the first and second. Bella came from the basement of my best friend’s apartment, a second generation of kitties from a pregnant stray (Momma cat) that showed up a few years ago. Momma cat moved on, but she left behind a little baby girl cat that turned around and had her first litter right before DragonCon. Well, Laura got that cat neutered and convinced Tye that he needed one of the kittens (He did). So I wound up driving 7 hours with a completely and totally crazy kitten to bring her home to live with my equally crazy cat and boyfriend. We’re quite a family.

Bella is a handful. She likes sitting on my keyboard when I open my computer, climbs into the oven, dishwasher and fridge, eats people food and trash and chases Pepper. I swear that she is a whirlwind of trouble…. every freaking second of the day. And she’s working on honing her killing instinct on feet, hands, pillows and even her tail. Oh yeah, and it’s Christmas time, so she has a tree that I’m having a time teaching her not to climb. Bella is definitely testing the limits of trouble-making cuteness.

Oh and she’s made a point of reminding us that she’s still a wild, free basement kitty. She’s outgoing and “chill” around us, but when guests come over, she gets skittish. So who wants to come over to my house and make the kitten uncomfortable. She’s lucky she’s so cute.

Speaking of cuteness – here are a few pictures to show you what I’m having to live with. All I have to say is Poor Pepper!

The Best Laid Plans

Normally by this point in time, I’d be blogging madly about the outfits I’m making for DragonCon and all of my big plans for that weekend. But instead – I moved to a different state.

I’m going to go to DragonCon, but the move has eaten up most of my money and all of my time – so it’s a reuse and redo D*C for me. And since I won’t have a hotel room – I can’t have 60 outfits to look all cute in. Even more sadness 😦

But don’t worry friends and fans, I’ll still have some posts about D*C, some outfits to show off and all of that other stuff… 🙂

And I’m steampunking my new apartment – mostly because my boyfriend doesn’t care what I do as long as I don’t spend him broke. So budget steampunking it is!

You can steampunk anything!

Happy Days are here! Again!

Ahh there is something about Spring… I’m drugged to the hilt with my allergy medicine! There is Spring in the Air. And I’ve started a new job.

I love my new job – of course, they give me snacks and sodas! And they play with Nerf guns!! And their office is totally steampunk. It is awesome!! But enough about that… seriously – there is more good news.

So… After a while of floating on Laura’s couch and looking, but not loving, new apartments – I’ve finally found a new place. So in the future, I will have a new apartment. What does that mean for you? It totally means that you’re going to get some new decorating posts! And since Laura isn’t pushing me out the door (Yet), I can slowly move in. Yippee!! Maybe I’ll steampunk my new place… maybe…

So look forward to that readers!

Hi Internet World – I’m back!

Posted in Big Changes, Happy News at 6:46 am by wangeli

So I know that I haven’t been around in a while… a long while… And I’m sure most of the internet has forgotten that I’m alive. Sorry about that. But I’ll be honest with you. First, if it wasn’t for my sudden and very unusual bout of insomnia, I wouldn’t be updating this blog at this point. And I really only write for myself… and my mom… oh yeah and you 😉

I guess you want to know what has brought me back – well it’s good news!! After a very long time being sadly laid off – I’ve found a new job that doesn’t involve trays and does include health insurance. I start next week and I’m a little nervous, but hoping for more good days then bad. And a stash of M&Ms. I am excited to show off my new tea drinking abilities in an office setting.

And there is more good news – now that I have a job, I can move off of my friend’s couch and into my own home. I’ve actually found a few that I like, but as always, am having commitment issues. But you know how much I like moving into a new place!! And I’ve been inspired by Steampunk Home ( – so I may bring my new steampunking hobby into more than just my clothes. So hopefully I’ll have awesome pictures of a new place to post.

But in the months and months that I’ve been gone, I have gone out and done stuff. And, since I’m up anyways, I guess I’ll post a few updates! Enjoy!!

Life Paused

Posted in Big Changes at 5:42 am by wangeli

So I am going through a little period of flux and I may not have the internet for a bit. Which means no more random blog post when I think of it.. SO, faithful readers – my Web Life has been paused. But don’t worry, I’ll be back. Fingers crossed – I might even be back soon!

Ahh a Haircut

Posted in Big Changes at 6:12 pm by wangeli

So I’ve been growing my hair out for locks of love… But on Sunday, I finally had enough and decided the long hair had to go.

And this how that turned out…

For those keeping track – I starting growing my hair out last September – before I got a job. And, in the year and half I was growing it, I grew the 12 inches I needed for locks of love and an extra inch or two.

Here’s what I’ve got now. Feel free to compliment away!
