Um, can we (or I) please talk about the new/old Neil Young album that just came out? Hitchhiker, it's called. It's basically a lost album, recorded one night in 1976. It's just Neil and his guitar (and a harmonica), and it's pretty fucking great, man!!

Only two of the ten songs are "new" songs ("Hawaii" and "Give Me Strength"), but I'd only heard a few of the songs before (different versions, of course). There's a stripped down version of "Powderfinger" on there that's really nice!! It's the second track. I also really loved the title track, which I'd never heard before!

I mean, really though, every track on this album is great! I've heard a fair amount of his albums, but I think I'm going to make it a point to listen to all 38(!) of them, even the ones that aren't as popular. I just love Neil Young! Can't get enough! Even have thought about getting a Neil Young related tattoo! Not a portrait or anything like that, but like some sort of reference? I adore his music that much!! ❤🎶

Anyway, if you like Neil Young, you can listen to Hitchhiker on Spotify! It's also on Youtube they took it down.

Goodbye, LJ

I deleted my LJ tonight. I made a little post the other day, saying goodbye and wishing my LJ friends the best (even though one of them hurt my feelings [which I know is easily done]* I'm too damn sensitive).

I have about 5 friends who actually still post there, who I left behind. But I'm at peace with it now. I mean, they know where to find me (here, on DW), I made sure of that, trust me! 😂 I practically begged them all to follow me over to DW, but hey, what can ya do? The ball's in their court.

It's sort of like when you're courting a dude. Like, if he likes you, he'll call. That sorta thing. And if they like me, they'll come find me. And if they don't like me... Well then what fuck?? 😂😂😂

Anyway...

See ya LJ, wouldn't wanna be ya!!! 👋

*Nothing serious, just ignoring my comments - very nice comments too, I thought! Maybe I was just a little too forward? I really don't know what the deal is... Maybe that person is just a jerk! Oh, well! It happens!

Tattoos, Hair, and Books

So since we've chatted, I've been a blonde (below) and am now a redhead (above). In the span of a week, no less. I got inspired while watching Game of Thrones (I'm on Season 4 so no spoilers, please) by all the beautiful reds, particularly my favorite, Melisandre. I'm also growing my pixie cut back out so that's fun (insert sarcasm). I thought trying to grow a pixie out was bad but growing out a buzzcut is pretty awful, too.

Side note, my new favorite treat is Orange Sherbet and Sierra Mist

I had a wonderful 36th birthday last week. It was wonderful as in the best birthday I've ever had. I was showered with sugar treats, pumpkin everything, two cakes, a massage, concert tickets, and a new tattoo. Speaking of, I went back to Shannon at Black Arrow, and she blew me away again. I had her do the Woodruff-Fontaine House in Memphis which is where Kelly and I were married. It's so beautiful, special, and itchy right now. Hah. I want to go back and see Shannon again in October.
I can't stop, and she does the best work.

Embracing my fat girl arms and planning on having them eventually partially covered with half sleeves if that's a thing? I just want both upper arms covered.

Kelly and I are getting ready to spend a night at the
Lemp Mansion in St. Louis next week (we've got a doctor's appointment). I'm really excited. We're staying in the Lavender Suite which looks beautiful. It's supposedly haunted, but I don't believe in that kind of thing unless I have an experience. I'm more excited about the history and how beautiful it is. I was talking to my Grandma recently, and when I mentioned the hotel, she said every Sunday after church, her and my Grandfather would go to the restaurant in the basement for their fried chicken dinner. They still serve it there family style, but it won't be a Sunday so we won't get to try that.

The weather has been ridiculously amazing lately here. It's been fall like, and I'm loving it. I got to wear these Hush Puppies for the first time that I found super cheap at the thrift last year. I love them. They make me feel ass kicking and feminine. They also remind me of the 90's. I found the same style in red that were on sale s
o I will soon own them in red! I want them in every color and pattern. Hmph. I'm going to have to eventually invest in some more. Does anyone have any sworn by suede protector that I should use?

In other recent, consumer news, I finally found a Halloween banner and ordered it! I really have wanted one for my kitchen to leave up year round because, hello, it's always Halloween in my heart. I thought this one was perfect from
Bedlam Supply Co., and they had a sale going on, too.

  • I just recently remembered when that when I was a kid in St. Louis, I would get crazy excited eating on the floating McDonald's boat down by the Arch so I googled it and found this article reminiscing.  I then started thinking of how excited I would get to go to Famous Barr for Breakfast with Santa.  I have to get this book , this one about lost St. Louis treasures (which features the McDonald's boat), and maybe this one too that looks like a Roadside America book on St. Louis. I consider the south my home now, but I do still have a lot of deep memories of the city I was born/have spent so much time in.
  • I have a massage scheduled for tonight for the first time in forever, and I can't tell you how excited I am about it!  
  • Hair Chronicles:  I always have hair chronicles, you all.  I want to keep the top longer/grow out my pixie, but I'm about to shave up the sides. I'm stewing on it and staring at pictures of bad ass women with short hair to inspire me, as always.  Stay tuned.  If someone doesn't like my hair, I always say, "Wait a week."  
  • I finished Twin Peaks.  Overall, I loved it, but the last episode I had feelings about.  I wasn't really a fan of that last episode (last five minutes especially), but I'm sad Twin Peaks is done forever.  It will always be one of my favorite shows.
