New name WHAT. [5.29.06 @ 11:47pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

My new LJ name is:



Add me there and make my day. I'll go through and add my current FL when I have the time.

I've been so sick of this name for so long. It's time I got a new one, I was just waiting for the right name to come. And musicsexual rocks. Seriously. ♥

♫ 5, 4, 3, open sesame: HAPPY NEW YEEAAARRR!!!!!! ♫ [1.3.06 @ 10:17pm]
[ mood | worn out. still. ]

New Year's Eve was pretty crazy. A huge group of people I know from everywhere from Rainbow Room to school to work all came over and we partied like it was 1999 2006. I have to get in the shower now, so details will come later or tomorrow or whenever I get to typing up what little I remember. For now, though, here's what pictures I can share with the LJ world & various things I learned that night.

#16. Drugs make otherwise idiotic people philisophical.Collapse )

So, happy 2006! Hope you all had as much fun on New Year's as I did =D

In other news, I have, like, 5 days until my paid account and 100 userpics expires, but I just today got the 10-day email. DAMNIT, LJ. There's no way I'm going to be able to send them cash in time >

[ mood | hungry ]

October 12, 1998

Listen to the mustn'ts, child.
Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts,
The impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves,
Then listen close to me:
Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be.

~ Shel Silverstein

Six years ago today, Matthew Shepard was murdered for being homosexual.

What will you do to end the silence?

[And for something completely unrelated, I just got home from a 5-hour synagogue service. A good yuntif to you all. Anyone mentions food in the next, oh, 20 hours, I'll beat you over the head with a stick, then make you not eat or drink for 24 hours, see how that goes.]

[Sorry. I get cranky when I'm hungry >< ]

[ mood | bored ]

So, your GLBTQWTFYA moment for the day:

I am...

I am the guy who came out to the entire school in his senior speech and got a standing ovation for his courage.

I am the girl who kisses her girlfriend on the sidewalk and laughs at those who glare.

We are the couple who planned and studied and got a damn good lawyer and BEAT the state that wanted to take our child away.

We are the ones who took martial arts classes and carry pepper spray and are just too dangerous to gay bash.

I am the transgender person who uses the bathroom that suits me, and demands that any complaining staff explain their complaint to my face in front of the entire restaurant--and shares with my other trans friends which restaurants don't raise a stink.

I am the mother who told her lesbian daughter to invite her girlfriend over for dinner.

I am the father who punished his son for calling you a fag.

I am the preacher who told my congregation that love, not hate, is the definition of a true follower of God.

I am the girl who did not learn the meaning of "homosexual" until high school but never thought to question why two men might be kissing.

I am the woman who argues (quite loudly and vehemently) with the bigots who insist that you do not have the right to marry or raise children.

We are the high school class who agrees, unanimously, along with our teacher, that love should be all that matters.

If you agree, repost this. Do it. You don't have to be afraid. You can handle it. You're stronger than you think.

In other news.....nothing. L'shana tovah tikatevu to my Jewish flist (though it's not technically New Year until Yom Kippur). To the rest of you, enjoy the two days off you get while I'm in services all day. Ugh.

I have become addicted to this version of Suddenly Seymour. ♥♥♥ it, love it, love it. Say what you want about Mandy Moore, she has a really pretty voice.

Best. Day. EVER. [6.9.05 @ 11:21pm]
[ mood | Im my life...I loved them all. ]

I'm way too impatient to resize the pictures, so....sorry. They're huge.



I decided to put RUFUSBAPTISTSFEST PICSPAM, part 2 in the same entry, 'cause it's technically part of the same picspam. Go on and comment about part 2 now.

In other news, the air conditioning in my house is broken, and it's hit 90 degrees the past 3 days. The basement is the only somewhat cool place in the house, so if I'm online a lot it's 'cause I'm stuck down here.

[ mood | this the hungry icon - creepy? ]

For those of you who would appreciate this: Guh. Double guh. Guh-guh-GALE!Collapse )
And, those of you who wouldn't....click it and enter the fandom of...guh...Gale.
I have a school laptop - with internet! :D . Yay.
After being stuck at home, I have come to fully appreciate Regis&Kelly, the Cosby Show, Home Improvement, and...yes...Ellen. Ellen Degeneres rocks, and I currently have a mental fit if I miss her show. EllenEllenEllen.
I get to eat whatever I want, whenever I want, which is possibly the only good part of being stuck here.
Oliver Platt can say California Roll in Japanese (or, as Ellen puts it, 'sushi'). Ha...I love this show.
No one's online.....someone sign on....gr....
How does one change the comment words? It's oneof the reasons I originally switched to S1.
Gonna go eat comfort food...grilled cheese :D Yum.
How amazing is this new Randy Harrison icon? Sorry....It rocks. I found it at, like, 3am last night. Yawn.

[1.10.05 @ 9:06pm]
Feeling a little better. Leg hurts like hell, but I don't complain that often.
It's funny, the people that come by - they seem suprised when I thank them for coming over. I'm thankful! Maybe they have no idea how boring it is sitting on a couch ALL DAY.
I sent my teachers an email (they asked me to!) telling them how I was, and they wrote me back. I just had to put this one up for everyone who's ever been in a class with Tom Lebo (especially my english class):

I am glad that you are well! Class is not the same without you! You are greatly missed, by me as well as the students. I NEED you back soon – or I will have to deal with Tom Lebo’s comments all day long without your thoughts! PAINFUL! Only kidding. Also, we start To Kill a Mockingbird and fishbowls soon, and WE need your thoughts! Take it light, and I will see you soon!
Mr. K

Ha. Going back to my couch now. CALL!

[ mood | in fucking *severe* pain ]

I'm home!
The surgery lasted from 10am to 4:30pm on Monday. Tuesday, I learned how to eat, drink, walk on crutches properly... and I got home from the hospital Wednesday at around 2:15pm. I'm on codiene every four hours, anitbiotics 2x a day, and somehow still feel like dirt. But I'm OK, considering there's now a 6inch metal plate and 5 screws in my left leg.
The Homebound Education people (re: tutors to catch me up on missed schoolwork) start coming Tuesday. I wish they'd come now - I'm bored senseless and stuck in one room, on one couch, with no computer, and I don't start school again until at least the 21st. Finally, my little cousin Zach remembered his own surgery and recovery, and decided it would be a good idea to bring over his laptop with wireless internet. Major thanks to Zach :)
And also, thanks so much to everyone who sent flowers or cards or notes or balloons, or called or came and vistied :) , or even just thought or prayed about me during the last week or so. I really, really appreciate it; they made me smile. Being out of touch with everyone is hard - enough to make one want to go back to school! - and smiling makes it easier. I'm still bored, so anyone who wants to call/write/leave me a voicemail....thanks. 215-354-1671
I'll see everyone soon.
:D Jenna
ps. If you care to, download anything by Rufus Wainwright. Gay Messiah especially - and Hallelujah, from Shrek - but just about anything is incredible.

5.4.3...OPEN SESAME! Happy new year... [1.1.05 @ 6:08pm]

Well, glad everyone seemed to have a good New Year's Eve. Mine won't be discussed.
I have 7 New Year's resolutions, anyway....for now. There'll be more soon.
1. Stop lying. COMPLETELY. Even little white lies. They always end up fucked.
2. Stop being so....obsessive. When I start to like something, I start to really, really like it. Obsess over it. It becomes my life *coughslashandqafandrentandwickedcough*. I need to learn how to just be into something, not be something. Make sense? Sorta? Maybe?
3. Stop talking about my past. Ok, so I've already started in on this one since Megan's birthday and the aftereffects of said event, but...I still need wome work on it.
4. Lose 10 pounds of weight and gain it back in muscle. I stopped working out for ahwile, but I miss it. I know that might sound like Grant, but...he's right on that one. It really does something (other than build muscle) for the people that do it.
5. This is sort of 3, but they're related. Well, well, well, what have we here, huh? It's gonna be a happy new year...Collapse )
6. Get closer to the people I call friends. They're not really friends yet, and that needs to change more than probably anything on this list but #1 - and that's why it's #1.
7. LEARN PAINTSHOP!!! That, I suck at. I don't want to suck at it, but I do. I'll learn, eventually...
8. Make a real website. Possibly even pay for a domain name. They go for, like, $10 a year.
Blame riddlev, but I'm addicted to doing Meme things now, so maybe I'll post my New Year's one here. Or on my Xanga. Probably on my Xanga.
Happy New Years, everyone. Make it the...in VH1's words....best year ever.

[ mood | My basement needs a heater!! ]

Wow, it's been awhile since I've written - though I truly doubt anyone's noticed.

Yea, it's 2:15am. My basement needs a heater, really badly, or else my hands are going to freeze off.

So, here's the past few days....

On Christmas, I ate Chinese and went to the movies like a good Jew. Saw Phantom of the Opera with parents. 'Twas...great. I cried my eyes out. Saw it again with Kevin, Taryn, Brenden (from Anne Frank), Crystal and her sister Melanie (or Melody?), and Allison (I think her name was). Cried even more than the 1st time, but they have been not tears, but the ice melting from around my head and hands after walking to Burger King and back in the freezing cold. We went back to Kevin's and did musical songs with his brother, Brendan, who I've known forever from swim team but never knew was a theatre freak like the rest of us.

Today I went to see Polar Express (gag) in IMAX in AC, NJ, but when we got there (2+ hour car ride!) it was sold out! How come no one called ahead for tickets? Gah. So we hung out with my cousin Lane (who's actually usually adorable - he's like, me, just smaller - inquisitive and active and bouncy and a total smart-ass), but I had a fucking killer headache, so forget having fun. Went to see Polar Express in the regular theatre instead. Movie was really good; it almost made me wish I celebrated Christmas (and as religious as I am!). The movie theatres in Margate NJ hold a maximum of 70 people (it said so on the wall on the little fire-dept. max-amount-of-people paper), and the screens are a lot smaller. Was very quaint.
Slept for about an hour on the way home, so no sleep tonight *shrug*.

That's about it, really. I made a sexy icon :) with Brian Kinney :) :) :) (yummy) a few days ago. I'm seeing Phantom (yes, AGAIN!) with Lyssa Forney tomorrow, more than likely. We're gonna do one of those whole-day-at-themovies-on-one-ticket thing - we wanna see Finding Neverland, Phantom, the Aviator, Meet the Fockers, and possibly the Lemony Snicket movie (but possibly not...I'm afraid to see how they ruined the books).

I'm really, really cold in jeans, a sweatshirt, and heavy wool socks. That's a problem, so I'm gonna go up to my room (and my space heater) now. I'll see everyone New Year's.

[12.24.04 @ 7:36pm]
Day was *beyond* boring.
Opened another box of Madre's records, the R's through S's. Guess what we found??? The RHPS soundtrack, on record!! The sound is amazing, and you can actually read the back cover - unlike the CD. I lurve it.
Started a new fandom site. It's cool, so I'm thinking of actually paying for the domain name I want. It's only $10 a year. That, or I'm getting a paid LJ account. I want more icons, now that I can switch them, and my own QaF or Idina mood icon set. :D That's $10 or $12, so it's easy.
Happy December 24th to anyone (Taryn) who knows what that means and why it's cool.
And, if you're doing anything tomorrow, please please please let me know? Or, if you're not...let me know? All I'm doing as of now is renting movies and having a movie-popcorn-day. O, and ordering in chinese like a good Jew.
And now, proof of sheer boredom....
December 24th, 9pm, eastern standard time...Collapse )

[ mood | drained, but not sleepy ]

She is my Sopie...My only Sopie...She makes me happy when skies are, um, gray....
Yea, you get the point.
The reunion was, for the most part, great. Would've been better if Jenn had bothered to even say 'hi' back when I did, but fine...I don't care anymore. She likes my friends better than me anyway, so...fuck it. I'm done. Other than that, it was amazing. Sopie & I now have *amazing* blinking pacifiers that I wore to school today & confused a lot of people. Hah, confusing people...so much fun. And I saw Corey :) and Brandy and...hmm...Kim, Aunt Becky, Aunt Maureen, Aunt Holly, Uncle Sam, Uncle Jeremy...hah. So much fun. Turns out, not only does Corey - who is so flambuoyantly gay, but he's actually straight - just a theatre freak, like Paul - know Ricky, Ricky almost raped him :D ... Poor straigt Corey :( . 'Twas fun to see him, though.
Someone used an icon I made. I feel special. http://www.livejournal.com/community/qafdownloads/128911.html?mode=reply&style=mine
Eh, today was....boring.
It was freaking cold this morning.
We start debates in Humanities while I'm gone, which just sucks.
I have Cat's mom for a biology tutor while I'm being homeschooled in January.
I have a Bio test tomorrow on Cell Reproduction.
Math went by really, really fast. And we're only doing puzzles tomorrow. And I explained dividing cubed and poly roots to Adam Horowitz, so he refrained from saying 'fag' all period.
Orchestra was boring, and I missed a decent lunch.
I bought a rainbow candy cane at my lunch, walked up to Tom in English, showed it to him & said 'Ok, Tom, What does this mean?' & he said 'Love is never wrong'. Ha. Pride, Tom. Pride.
I think I got Megan and Taryn in trouble during clase de espanol. I'M SORRY! She never sees you...never! Not 'til today, anyway.
Reality's holiday party / gift exchange tonight. I got a bowling set. How fucking amazing is that?
Hebrew high tonight. I missed Michael.

Random stuff....I'm bored, leave it alone.Collapse )

[ mood | GSC REUNION!! WHOOOO!!!!! ]

GSC reunion tonight!! Excited excited excited!! I miss my Sopie. Sopie!! And Pauli!! Poor Pauli - we spent all of camp trying to get her to stop apologizing for everything, and when she was sososo close, we challenged eachother to a face-off in gaga, I dodged a ball she hit at me, and that's how I hurt my hip :( And it was back to the drawing board with Pauli. O, and Megan and Destiny and Sarah! Sarah!! My drama princess-half!! I miss everyone so much. Tonight'll be so much fun!!!
O, question, those of you who have more than 1 icon - Whenever I change my icon, it changes it on all my past comments, too. How do I change my icon now without changing how it looked on posts that were a day or so ago?
Project Change was....intelligent. Nice. Fun, really. The advisor hates me already :D ....and Amy's in it >.< grrr, but I'll survive.
New Years? Party? Anything? My house? ANYONE'S house? Let me know? Please? :)
I need to go to el mall sometime next weekend - I have $50 to blow at Willow Grove, and at least $20 at Forever 21 ><....I'll find something, I guess, just preferably not with my mother.

RENT was incredible. Absolutely amazing. All I can say is...wow.
:edit: OK, I'm changing the entire tone of this entry....My apologies to nlduffy who had to - saldy - put up with my grumbling about life in general.
After 5 hours in the basement in the cold, I'm changing this to a happy, totally-queer-as-folk-icon entry.

...'Cause everything is RENT!! [12.19.04 @ 11:31am]
[ mood | so fricking excited! ]

Going to see Rent tonight!!!!!!!!!
Row F seats - not as good as the NYC trip ones, but at least they're not partial viewing this time. Arg, I'm so excited!!!
Comment if you want me to call your voicemail at some point in the show., and tell me when - like, at what song - and I'll try my best, I swear. Or, if it's after 3:30pm, call my voicemail - I'll already be on my way.
Oh, and if anyone has a decent version of What You Own and feels like emailing it to me in an attachment or as a yousendit thing or ANYTHING, I'll....be eternally greatful. Please?
What was it about
That night
Connection in an isolating age
For once, the shadows gateway to light
For once I didn't disengage...
Dying in America
At the end of the millenium
We're dying in America
To come into our own
And when you're dying in America
At the end of the millenium
You're not alone
I'm not alone...

...I love this show. It is my life, sad as that may be.
