New possible house? Built in 1947.
This is where we would keep our prisoners
and the backyard!

I am sitting here drinking my yummy green tea that Ming brought over for me. It is delish. Landon is painting to Bjork. His painting is changing with the different moods of the music. I like his experiments. He really is creative. I copy, he creates. How can I break this wall, this boundary? Is everyone artistic within limits? I don't think so. I want to break into my own on so many levels.
Brittny is getting divorced. This means that she is going through so many new experiences. Discovering things she hasn't known about, and also falling into old habits. I wish she could be here, to break even further from the nest and the comfort. But who am I to judge, I do what makes me happy, which in a sense is staying within my comfort realm.
I bought Landon a photograph of Angie's for Christmas. I hope he can see the orange tree. It may look brown to him though.
Does he know he is painting in red? The red is sad and tormented like this song. Music is so beautiful and powerful to bring out emotions. We embrace the emotions that music invokes in us. How amazing. I hope he can see the orange, and that it is as beautiful to him as it is to me.
It is cold here, which is nice for a change. What would out lives be like if it was cold all the time?
on a different note, Landon and I found my dream home. I hope we can buy it. I have to quit worrying and just let things happen as they will. Monday we will know more. monday we will know more. It is so old and beautiful in a very decrepit way. The walls inside are all curving inward as the house says hello to us. Does anyone else love this home as I do. What things have taken place in this home over the last 95 years? Damn, that is some time for some history to happen. What all has happened in the world since this house has been there? World wars, the depression, heartbreak and happy times. Who lived there? What are their stories? I want to make my mark and have my place in this majestic home. I want my story to be the next in it. Please let it be mine. Let it be mine.

starving artists are starving because they would rather be happy.
this life is a journey, a pathway, a road. there is nowhere to get, only the experiences along the way. Make them worthwhile, make them good. Otherwise, what do we really have anyway?
It is normal to feel emotions that are not pleasant.
Break emotional boundaries.

Reality TV sucks. I just watched 5 episodes in a row of the crapiest tv I have ever seen! :) ONly out of sheer lazyness to move off of the couch. Now hours later I am about to watch a horror movie. I don't even watch suspensful movies because they scare me. I don't know what I am getting myself into. Oops, oh well.
This last week was really really fun. I never get drunk anymore. Not really in the mood. I drink, but not drunk. Sunday was another story. Started drinking at 10 am as I was working on some models with other co workers and friends. So much fun. Didn't make it home till 2:30 after the fashion show and party. I haven't really been one to pull off the all day drunk thing, but I guess I did. I danced (which I never do) and just had SO MUCH FUN! The ole lung aroos are still hurting, but fuck it, it only happens evry once in a while.
Killy kell, I got your letter like a week ago, and I LOVED IT!!!! UMMMmm. YOu are such a sweetie. You made my evening and next day and the next! I wrote you a letter immediately after reading yours, but my lazy ass still hasn't finished or mailed it. :) I promise to get on it. I am blowing you a kiss from Tejas right now. mmma
Ooh, more cool things about this week... I flirted my way into an inspection sticker for the Vespa. How kick ass is that? It is really fun to flirt and get stuff you need. I can't believe I got a sticker when I shouldn't have. Fuckin fabulous.
Well, off to my horror movie.

Today was so kick ass. It has been so long since the weather has been that nice! I think today proves to myself that I would absolutely love the cool overcast weather of Portland. Riding my scoot in this overcast cloudiness is a dream... Ummm, I need to go chill outside. The heat has never bothered me like it has this year. I couldn't figure it out. Almost all my life I have endured the Texas heat. Am I getting cranky in my old age,I wondered? Maybe I have been less tolerable to this crappy 100 degree heat and humidity because I long to be else where? Nope, It dawned on my dumb ass that I have been out in the heat quite a bit more this year due to the fact that I no longer own a car. That and my love for being outside on a patio absolutely everywhere. But I love it... I just wish that we all could accept the fact that it is really fuckin hot, and we all could be smelly and sweaty during the summer. That's how it was last year. It's hot, and your sweaty, but so is everyone else, so it's all good. Instead we all obsessively bath and over air condition our buildings. Well, except Avant, it is always roasting if the sun is beaming in. :) Humm. oh, well......
I want to be back in Spain so bad. That and Alaska, I can't wait to go. It's crazy, I am always living in the future. Come back in Camie. Come back to now. Now is nice, now is chill. But still, I live in the future. It's nice to dream, keeps me going.

I can't believe that it was so incredibly easy to put photos on. Yeah! :) I didn't even screw it up, I am so exited!!!! Thanks Ming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am taking a sick day today. I have been sneezing all over myself all weekend. Been doing the netti pot, zyrtec, aleve, and still no relief. I wonder if I am allergic to any new additions of my home? Yes, I am really that paranoid. I hope it's not my Kombucha, and that it is just this damn city that I am always eternally allergic to. Cross your fingers for me.

|Space and energy
Space and energy are the two main things on my mind today. Both of them effect me so much. Both completely separate, but I am lacking one of the two right now so this entry is being cut short without any indulgence.

I have been a bad friend... I have not written nor read anything lately. I briefly logged onto your site. So, I think you are in Vietnam? If so, I have your address and will write you! :0 I hope you are having a great time. You are in school there? I am so exited for you whatever you are doing. I know that you are doing it well. Oh, if you want to set up your keyboard to type accents this site may help.http://www.studyspanish.com/accents/typing.htm
Nothing new is happening around here. I have had an incredibly lazy summer. I had all these grand plans of exploring all the natural springs in the surrounding area in the hill country. Supposivly there is a ton of them. Ya, haven't been once. I also was going to sign up for Spanish, yep, didn't happen yet either. I live a half of a mile from work and have been riding my scooter instead of walking or riding my bike. Shear lazyness. My belly has even grown several sizes with all of this new exitement in my summer life. I blame it on the heat, but I know that is not the case. It's mainly the beer and candy. Umm...

|But she's old
But she's old, you can't take her house away.
It's official, I'm OLD.
Landon and I walked into Abercrombie the other day while searching for a pair of jeans for him. Seriously, all of the jeans were torn to shreds, and a lot of money on top of that. The only thing that I could think, over and over again was, I can't believe they can charge that much money for jeans with holes in them!!! I could do that myself with a little time. What a rip off!
Then I remembered the same words coming out of my parents mouth as I was a teenager in Rampage. I shook my head at the time and thought... You don't understand, your so OLD ( and way too uncool). Now I am the one thinking, why waste your money on clothes that already have holes in them! :)
Then as I looked over at Landon, and he whispered under his breath, Look at how much they are charging for jeans that have holes in them.
We smiled and walked out.

Sitting on the porch again. I think this is my new favorite hobby. It is so nice to have the sky with light when I get off work. It is amazing how much happier I am just because the sun is still out when I leave work. My friend and co worker Anthony is moving to San Antonio this month. I am happy that he is doing this because I feel like this is what he wants and needs to do, but Anthony I am gonna miss you man.

I love my neighborhood. It is wonderful. I am sitting on my porch looking out into the dimming sky. There are all these beautiful knotted old trees. It is so pretty to see the contrast of theses dark trees and the dimming sky. At times they can be eerie.
It has hailed 3 times in the last month here. A couple of weeks ago we went to my friend Jason's art opening. The sky was so clear that night. The stars seemed extra twinkly. Maybe there was no moon?... I was sitting out on the balcony when the leaves really started to rustle and the wind was picking up like it was blowing from hell. WIthin minutes the sky changed from crystal clear to pouring torrential rain. This is somewhat unusual for Austin. Hail started falling. Landon and I started runing down the spiraling stairs. As the rain and hail was hitting us from all sides, I could here Landon's barely audible yell whispering hold on the the rail. It was really like we were running directly under a raging waterfall. Quite invigorating and fun. MInutes later it passed and we drove home soaking wet. Our street was covered as well as this wonderful porch that I am sitting on with at least 4 inches of leaves and debree. It's funny that with all of the energy of a storm, how absolutely soothing and amazing storms are to me.

This last weekend Landon and I went to get some new friends. I was determined to find the ugliest goldfish ever. I found it. This fat little thing looked like it had brains on the top of his face. I was then informed that this particular kind of goldfish is mutilated to get this look, so I moved on to the second ugliest goldfish that I could find. He is solid black, chunky, and has HUGE bug eyes popping out from his face. He's my little baby and is super duper cute.
Landon decided that if I was getting a fish he would try to out do me and get one too. Well his little baby is a brackish water puffer fish. So, it can live in fresh water and we put a little cup of salt in the tank and whenever he wants salt he just swims down there. (The only reason that they are both boys is because we named them that way, we actually have no idea... They could be little princesses)
Kip and Napoleon. Landon's is Kip.
So it's 7.30 am Sunday morning and I decided to check on the kiddo's only to find that flippin Kip was eating the fins off of Napoleon!! My poor little baby is shredded to pieces. I gave Napoleon a nice separate place to swim, out of the danger of his more aggressive brother, but the poor thing has a hard time swimming now. One flip on the left to three on the right just to swim straight. Needless to say, he swims in circles now. He misses his food a lot and has to put it in reverse and try to hit the target again. Poor little baby. :(

Today was so beautiful, and windy. I met up with some friends at Ztejas for lunch. My fish was sooooooooo good. It came with really yummy rice, veggies, and a whole lot of avacado. Ummmm, mi favorita! Then for the very first time in my life I rode on a motorcycle! It was sooooooo much fun, I want one so bad now. Landon and I were thinking about getting a moped for a while, but then everyone talked me out of it. Now though, things have maybe changed. It was great in this beautiful weather to just be cruisin around. I swear, it was one of the funnest things I have ever done. So we cruised on down to the kite festival at Zilker Park, chilled for a while watching the kites, and then I left early so that I could get a ride back with D on his bike vs going in someones car. :) Too much fun. Man, it's exhilarating. So that was my day. It was fabulous!
Wow, so I just got a new coffee maker for $5! I feel like it's one of the best things ever. It automatically shuts itself off after brewing, and instead of a normal carafe, it is an insulated carafe so that the coffee is sealed inside and stays warm. I am so easily impressed and exited. Man, I love my coffee!!!
"The Mormons found us today." I was informed by Landon as soon as I came home from work. "I couldn't get them to leave. They just kept asking if they could help, we kept saying no I don't think do. They didn't leave until Robert said that he didn't have a book of Mormon, didn't want one and was Catholic. They stood there for fifteen minutes trying." Poor guys, I think my Mom or Dad sent them. I'm pretty sure they gave them my info when they were here in Austin. Now I am going to have to get on some do not disturb list or something. I actually think the whole thing is funny, but then again I wasn't home when they came by. I always enjoyed having the missionaries over as a kid, but really there is no point in them getting turned down time and time again by us. I guess I could just tell them that I am not interested in hearing anything about religion but if they still want to come by and have a drink or even a whole meal of food... Okay, I am way too tired and delirious. I just started quoting Frank the tank. Where was I, no where really. Oh well, I think the situation may take care of itself, and if not then I guess I will have to.
New Orleans, here I come baby! You ready for us?? I hope?
A DEBUT OF WORKS BY ANGIE STEDING
|Wednesday, March 9th, 2005|
This Friday I am going to the Four Seasons to do make up for Marsha Gay Harden and 3 other ladies that are going to a cocktail party. ooeeeewwww. Sooo high society. Better remember the camera. I'm glad that I get to go, but it's a little nerve wracking/ exiting at the same time. This week is a busy week. On Sunday I am going to the convention center to do hair and make up for a bridal fashion show and photo shoot. I'll be glad to rest on Monday.
Work is going well. I am still really slow at doing everything, but I guess speed will come with time. I am exited to get busier. I work with Rudolph on Fridays, and I love it. It is so inspiring to watch him work.
On to other things. Landon got us tix to see Alicia Keys last Friday in Houston. It was so much fun. I worked that evening, so when I got off at 5.30 we drove on down to Houston jammin out and listening to good music. We went to the concert, and then drove back and listened to more music. I love driving, well really riding in the car, and listening to music. Especially when it's dark. It's just so soothing. We listened to Mazzy Star, the Garden State Soundtrack, Sade, and really I forgot what else, but some mellow tunes. I think I had more fun just driving and listening to music, well at least as much fun. I just put the connection together that Mazzy Star sounds like Belly. I wonder if it is the same singer??? Anyways, after the concert we walked around the carnival at the rodeo. We didn't play, but it was fun to walk around and be silly.
