LisnLibby Summer 2004 Update [12 Jun 2004|11:58pm]

[ mood | tired ]

So, money is the root of all evil- and more specifically, the evil of keeping LisnLibby apart. Lis will be spending the summer doing physics in cyberschool and if all goes well, Libby will be working in an ice-cream-shop. They will be thousands of kilometres apart.

Not like that ever stopped either of us. Just slowed us down some.

In keeping with last year's Anti-Angst theme, this summer we want people to expand their role-play characters in new and different ways to make them more fun to deal with and to play. Character development is always great.

What's going down:
Every week until the end of August, barring natural disaster, family chaos or supreme laziness, either Lis (goldjadeocean) or Libby (silverorchid) will post a prompt for characters to reply to. To reply, people will post a comment to the prompt entry (though they may also cross-post to a character journal or sschars). This keeps up until the next week, when a new prompt is posted. You can do every single prompt, or you can pop in wherever the fancy strikes you- we don't care.

Responses can be in any form, but the emphasis here is on turning your character into a real, live human being with all kinds of facets to him or her.

This Week's Prompt (June 13-19, 2004)

Your character comes by some money and decides (or is forced) to spend it on clothes. What is the shopping trip like?

To reply in a comment to this post, use the following form:

[ mood | amused ]

The innuendo lives on...

(Libby, Libby's mom, and Libby's mom's friend Dana are sitting at a table in a restaurant, talking. The discussion is currently between Libby's mom and Dana, on how men are scum)

Libby's Mom: Let's teach Libby our man-hating ways, Dana.

Libby: I dunno, mom, you might turn me into a lesbian.

Libby's mom: Don't be silly, Libby, you'll never be a lesbian.

Libby: You say that until the day you find out Lis is my lover.

(Liby's mom assumes a frightened, deer-in-headlights look. the conversation rapidly switches topics)

Wait, before you ask, why is libby writing in the lisnlibby journal. Didn't Lis go home? Yes, she did. But did you really think you'd get rid of us that easily? Ha. You're funny.

The Order of the Six shall continue, for varios reasons, and this journal will continue to be updated throughout the year, only less so because it will only be with things relating to lisnlibby.

Anyway. On to business.

Because, Jo darling, when Lis and I see you roleplay, you remind us of... us. In the TTT. Only... a little less hyper. Supposing we come back in three years and you're still here, we througholy expect you to be ten times cooler and more talented then we are.

Here's to a summer of bananas, brigades, smurfs of all kinds and hot chocolate.

[ mood | depressed ]

Yesterday was almost a good night. Babysat Kia and her older brother Jacob, which was an easy job- watched disney and sang to kia when she whined and wouldn't sleep. Got paid $20 apiece for the two days, which was lovely.

Came home, went on the computer and talked to a Josh AND a Claire AND a Kat... got off an email to Lexi... then Chris walks in (he was spending the night in the trailer in the driveway) and goes, "Libby! We just found a cat on the road!"

I was thinking "My god, Chris just found roadkill" when Chris's friend walks in with this eight-to-ten week-old kitten that's a few shades oranger than butter and cuddly as hell. As clingy as Rudy-cat and Johnson were. Chris asked if he could keep the kitten int he trailer with him and received a simultaneous LisnLibby "NO!". Although the parents weren't home and the chances of keeping her were slim, the kitten was immediately christened Daemon in honour of Anne Bishop's Daemon Sadi and Phillip Pullman's Dæmons.

But wait! This is Libby's family, where communication has broken down to the point where the moment Libby's parents learned about the kitten her dad advocated drowning it. (so much for Coolest Member of the Household). Libby and I had already decided that we couldn't keep Daemon, and were going to look for its owner door-to-door in the morning or give it to the petshop. We left Daemon in the bathroom overnight and as we were going to bed we hear a door open and shut and Libby goes, "I bet that's Dad throwing the cat out."

It saddnened me less for the cat and more for Libby and Libby's parents, who seem to have trouble communicating on little things (kitten) and the big things (they think Libby's been pressured into sex on a few occasions, that she enjoys being around Devon, blah blah blah).

This is all the much harder to type when they're both walking past repeatedly.

Daemon was still there in the morning and after a huge fight over breakfast beginning with Libby going, "I think we'll just leave the kitten where Chris found her" her parents misunderstanding and culminating in her dad going, "YOU WILL LEAVE THAT KITTEN WHERE CHRIS FOUND HIM!" (trouble communicating little and big things, remember?) we took her tot he corner Chris found her, kissed Daemon goodbye, set her down, and walked away.

The kitten followed. LisnLibby had a marathon sprint for 300 metres to get rid of her.

We slept until noon, then got up and realized (to our horror) that we're becoming able to get motor licenses, hold jobs, apply for universities and all those things we're so unready to do. I realized I had to pack.

We realised that the LisnLibby summer is almost over.

I cut my nails. She watched Disney with Gillian. I folded up my fabric. She did Hayes's livejournal. We avoided life for a while.

We'd just like to welcome lunanera to both our Friends lists. She's the Leigh of SCA fame with Lis, and a very old friend of Libby- fellow purveryor of TTT nonsense, while we're at it.

[15 Aug 2003|10:39am]

I promised Chris an update. sooooo...

We saw vikings! We went to L'anse aux Meadows and watched the vikings in their sod huts doing things vikings do, and that kind of made me homesick because of all the SCA events/practices/tavern nights I'm missing. Every time I turn around I was like, "Hey! ________ does that!" or, "Hey! That was taught in a THUA (Their Highness's University of Avacal) class!"

But it was cool. Libby got stuck in a London accent all day. Really pissed her parents off but I thought it was amusing. Camping with Mrs. Libby's mom kind of weirded me out- on the northern tip there are a lot of bundles of wood next to the road where people were logging, and she's like, "Let's steal some wood!" and Libby's dad was like, "Maybe not, that belongs to people." And she replied, "Oh come on, we'll say we thought it was for our personal consumption!"

He didn't stop and we didn't get wood. Libby's dad ties with Libby for Coolest Member of the Household.

Amusing was on Wednesday during Sol and Dami's plot, when Robert (ex) showed up right in the middle of it and tried to take us to the carnival (creepy stalker dude, isn't he?). Libby tried tot alk him out of it but I came to the door and went (all twitchy and slightly Gollum-like without the sibilant ss's) "Robert? I- can't. See, there's this plot that I've been planning since june... and... I can't. Sorry. And we have no money, and come another night." and returned to the computer. I think we're going with Jackie and Kitty and maybe Erin tonight.

Yesterday, we had to watch Libby's nine-month old cousin Kia (kye-ah) all day for NO PAY. Family sucks. This is the little girl we had to take for a walk twice, and you could not put her down. She cried if you did. She had her nap (all 20 minutes of it) on Libby's chest.

Am very tired and a little homesick. I leave at seven in the morning on Tuesday. Still don't know if my high school schedule for this year has arrived home yet. Grar.

[ mood | sore ]

Oh, headache. Want a shower. But there's a Lis in my shower. I don't think the Lis in my shower wants a Libby in the shower with her. of course, there's always the possiblity, but my platonic sheilds are firmly in place.

robert came over last night, wanted lis and i to go to the fair. "Really don't think so Robert. Just not a good night. If you had called earlier, maybe."

"C'mon! We can get candy apples, and go on rides. It'll be me, you, lis and marcus."

Shake of head. "We haven't got any cash on us anyway."

"Me and Marcus do! We'll pay for everything! It'll be like a date!"

"That's sweet robert, but I don't think so."

He left. Then he showed up today with Lis' watch and hairbrush, and two candy apples. Silly stalker.

We spent the day in the company of my nine-mo. old cousin, Kia. She's sweet, chubby, blonde and LOUD. She refused to be set down, which resulted in a lot of Libby-holding-the-baby-even-though-her-arms-are-about-to-fall-off time, because Kia also refuse to switch holders.

Around two she fell asleep while i was burping her. Lis stacked pillows behind my back and the two of us dozed for a half hour. Then she woke up. And all hell broke loose.

Okay, that's an exageration. But she was cheerful for a bit, then not, then screaming, then cheerful... and i thought i had mood swings. Took her for a few walks. Her mum was supposed to come get her at three, but she didn't show up till about six.

Dad did dishes ('cause he's awesome) and Libby attempted to design a livejournal, but livejournal hates me and bah. anyway.

New icon, made from my backround. Me like.

As Lis and I are on a journal-making spree, if there is anyone who would like us to redo their journal, leave a comment with your name, journal name, and a way we can contact you (ie aim, msn, email.) For examples of what we can do, look at silverorchid, goldjadeocean, kitty_13 or lisnlibby.

This weekend was good, I suppose. The viking village was amazing, and I got stuck in a london accent the whole time. Bitch smurf came out to play for a morning, but she's gone now. Played lots of card games.

Coming home was less fun. We got the second Dark Jewels book at the mall, bought chocolate, and were in high spirits. Drove up and decided to check our emails before we unloaded the trailer. That's when we discovered the worm that had fixed itself into my computer. Lis got rid of it, after half an hour of trying to download the patch before the computer going "You have a worm!" No shit. So she fixed it while I cleaned out food boxes in the kitchen. Came downstairs to grab things to put away and mom comes out of the garage.

"Did you hear about Rosa?"

Rosa was the woman who took care of me while my parents worked for the first four years of my life. I've been trading letters and calls with her every few months or so forever.

"No, is she sick?"

"She died, last Thursday."

I just sorta stared at mum. I knew Rosa had a fight with cancer last year, but she was alright and recovering fine. Mom said it had something to do with her heart, then went upstairs to sleep. I went upstairs, started again with the unpacking and started crying. Have stopped and started several times since then.

I can't honestly say that I've been very close to Rosa in the past ten years or so. She doesn't speak english, and my german is more than rusty. But she still called on holidays, and i still talked to her with what i could. She shaped my childhood. She's the reason I am the way I am now, for better or worse.

So, because my parents want us to, and because we're getting up at six tomorrow, Lis and I are going to bed... at a decent hour.

We'll be gone until tuesday, without computer access. But, hey, we'll have vikings.

Lis's theory of the day: All mums should be on drugs.


Anyway. Love you all, enjoy my lay... out.

Ps. Keep that de-angsting going. and nika, don't have the soap opera plot without us. we would be upset. Raven, please don't hold the wedding plot without lis. she would be very upset. chris, if you sell carrie on ebay... make sure the guy who buys her pays shipping. Mark, don't pick your nose with the blanket. (Heh heh heh.)

Josh, bring out turky to keep the morale up while we're gone? And try not to miss us too much. ;þ
