cassildra: Pittsburgh skyline at night (pittsburgh: downtown skyline at night)
So I went to a casino for the first time last night--the Rivers Casino here in Pittsburgh.

I wasn't disappointed per se, but I was really... disillusioned, I guess? I expected something like what's depicted on the drama Las Vegas--mostly quiet places with you being able to tell when someone wins big on slots, and every table staffed and full of eager players.

I dunno. It was too loud, and the food was overpriced, and playing slots is surprisingly boring. I didn't dare try a table game considering my utter fail at knowing the rules for most of them.

I'd like to go to experience the Grand View Buffet, but at $30 a head, I'd have to be feeling real hungry and real rich to do it.

The West End Cafe was tasty, but again, overpriced. Good fries, though, and the cold Chipotle Chicken Wrap wasn't bad, but probably not worth the $7.25 I paid for it--the fries and 16 oz. drink were $3 extra.

Really, I think the idea of casinos can be cool, but I've decided that I'll only go to Vegas to watch the shows there--gambling at casinos ain't for me, especially considering my lack of skill at games; I'll stay away from the tables, too. I'll stick with my scratch-off tickets, thanks.

This thing is ridiculous. Because that's ~totally how the human body works~ amirite?

How do I get a youtube video to embed? There's a pretty hilarious video I'd like to show y'all about a CHINESE CLEAVAGE CLAMP.

My dear friend [personal profile] delight is having $8000 worth of financial trouble. She's setting aside her pride, a task I know is really hard for her, and asking for donations.

I've donated what I can, and I'm also signal-boosting to see if anyone else can help her by spreading the word or donating.

Thank you guys so much for at least skimming this. Please, do what you can for her. She's a sweet lady and deserves to live in better conditions, and for her mother to get the help she needs.

I'm not crossposting to LJ at the moment because I'm not sure how to make DW-specific tags over there.

Normal City is a neat little poem about "normal" as opposed to "freak". Found via [personal profile] copperbadge.

I'm sure by now you've heard about the earthquake in Christchurch. This is just a post for all of my NZ friends to check in. (Yes, [profile] selina_fox, I'm looking at you specifically.) If you can help anyone, please contact the NZ Red Cross at http://www.redcross.org.nz/donate.

And now, off to work to live in my bubble for 8.5 hours.

So apparently kitty can't come out today. She's hiding in the parentals' bedroom pretty hard. Apparently being in the cat carrier freaked her out pretty hard.

In other news, I'm watching a marathon of Royal Pains. This is a pretty neat show. So go on, show me icons and fic and stuff.

Also, Dead Like Me fic/icons would be appreciated.

The cat and I are hanging out. She's stuck in her carrier right now because the parents got a new TV and are installing it, so I've got the carrier out here in the living room. I'm doing this. I keep telling her she's a kitty.

My nails are long enough to paint Sailor Saturn purple. I am happy.

If I'd have done a decent job I'd show off a picture, but I suck at painting my nails, so I can't.

And of course, I forgot to do the dishes first... Blah. Oh well, that's what a topcoat is for, amirite?

Anyway--the cat is coming out of her small room sometime today, which is exciting. My mother named her Queen Isabella I of Dormont. Izzy for short.

Squee, I have a kitty.

We got a kitty. Her name is currently Waverly, but that sucks, so we'll be changing it. Suggestions?

I had a good talk with a friend of mine--I'm not naming names because I'm not sure he wants the attention. Anyway, we talked about how badly Trevor broke me. I think that it's worse than I thought, considering that it's been over a year and I've had one rebound relationship that obviously didn't work out, and that's it. I'm afraid to test the waters again. And my recurrent depression isn't helping.

I dunno. I have a friend-date tomorrow to go to Starbucks and crochet/knit, but I'm not sure I can make it--Dad's not feeling well and I haven't told him about it yet. So we'll see. But at least I've got plans to go out instead of staying home and wallowing in Valentine's misery.

I dunno. I'm getting tired and it's kind of late. I think I'm going to go to bed and see what tomorrow has in store.

No cat today because I wasn't with them. No chance to see if I'm allergic. I think that's kind of silly, but I can see their point. (I know I'm allergic, but it's not serious allergies.)

Anyway... back to your regularly-scheduled stuff.

Might be getting a kitty today. I don't know how I feel about this. On one hand, yay kitty! On the other hand, boo allergies!

I think I need help. I'm really depressed this morning, like, crying jag depressed, and I haven't cried in the past year. My dog and my favorite uncle dying didn't make me cry.

What's wrong with me?
