Ms. when my friend was afraid of the snake?? - Mood:Hysterical
Saturday March 31 20078:21:18 PM |
My period has gotten much more mellow as I've gotten older.

Back in the day that sh*t lasted 7 full days. With at least 3 ridiculously heavy days, two normal ones, and two light ones.

Now, it barely lasts 4. One really heavy, one moderately heavy, one normal, and one light.

I don't know what caused "the change", but I like it. Is it because I became more mellow? My period followed suit? At any rate, cheers to my period being nearly over and having only just started.

Also, cheers to me having a semblance of a social life again. And having an idea of what my life plan is. I feel like a winner tonight.

In your face, uterus.

P.S. I'm always hysterical these days.
P.P.S. It's a good way to be.

Ew to the max! I need a shower after that mess. - Mood:Good
Saturday March 31 20071:11:20 PM |
So, I'm writing this quickly prior to taking a shower in which I scrub every piece of my body.

I just had to plunge the toilet like I've never plunged in my life! For half an hour, I plunged, I tell you. And the poo in the toilet!! (Literally and figuratively).

Thank goodness I recently learned the art of plunging from my job. All my life my dad has been the resident plunger.

But ew. I really thought it was going to seep onto the floor a couple of times.

I am so grossed out right now!

Why am I awake at 9:00 AM on the day I took off?? - Mood:Good
Saturday March 31 20079:21:22 AM |
My boyfriend's phone has been cut off for over a month.

This has really put a strain on our ability to talk (especially considering that he lives in another state). Finally it was turned back on yesterday evening. We've talked a ridiculous amount since then to make up for lost time.

He called here at 8:30 this morning (5:30 his time) and told me sweet things while he was drunk (I love being drunk dialed by him...all he does is go on and on about how cool I am...and who doesn't like to hear that every now and again?)

Speaking of which, last night, smoking/drinking with my former coworker/friend, he randomly decided to tell me that I was much cooler than he'd previously thought (in the past we only hung out in groups). Hurrah. I didn't know QUITE how to take that. I always knew he was really cool. Apparently it took hanging out individually for my coolness to shine.

Aren`t you glad I didn`t say banana? - Mood:Hysterical
Saturday March 31 20073:21:39 AM |
I f*cked up my knee. And I don't know how.

But it's got a series of bruises. 4 in a row. And it really hurts to walk.

I bruise like a banana. I was called a banana the other day by one of the kids at school. "You look like a bah-nah-nah." I suppose I did.

It's peanut butter jelly time.

What can I do to not bruise so much? I've tried being less clumsy but it's not an option. Plus I work in a small space with small shelves and things that are not near eye-level so sometimes I don't see them and run into them.

I know there are foods I can eat to better my bruising capacity. What are they?

On an unrelated note, I hung out with a former coworker tonight. We've been hanging out a bit lately and it's nice having such a cool friend back in my life. I really enjoy friends who are funny and intelligent. Yay for that.

Don't forget...bruises...advice...etc.

*Toot, toot!!* - Mood:Good
Thursday March 29 20075:22:28 PM |
Toot your own horn. What are you really good at? Let's pat each other on the back.

I am a really good story book reader. I'm very animated and do great voices. The kids are always hella-attentive.

I'm also a great tower-tour-giver. Tower tours are a "magical moment" at the ride I work at Disney, in which we bring a child and his/her family into our controls tower to show them around. I've often been told that I do the best ones.

I'm also great at smelling good. 99.9% of the time I smell like an angel. I don't know how I do it. I just do.

Enough of my tooting. It's your turn. What do you rock at?

Everywhere I go I keep her picture in my wallet like...

I love that song. L-O, L-O, L-O, L-O-V-E.

Things I also love: hot tea, stepping on crunchy leaves, cleaning the lint out of a dryer's lint trap, bouncy balls, Nintendo, ranting about sucky people, triumvirates, hot tubs, snow, sunsets, playgrounds, the perfect last bite to a meal, sidewalk chalk horse, and pj's fresh out the dryer

I just saved a beetle's life. It was flying all up in my room last night. "Bzzz, bzzz, bzzz," said the beetle.

He was awfully noisy so I covered him with a coffee cup to keep him quiet.

Luckily, I took the cup off today and he lived!

So tonight I'm on the computer and what do I hear? "Bzzz, bzzz, bzzz". And I see Mr. Beetle flying around the room like a chicken with his head cut off (more like a beetle trying to get outside, but you get the picture).

So, I capture him in another cup and take him outside. I hope he wasn't injured by the drops of tea/sugar

Yes it`s the apocalypse alright. I always thought I`d have a hand in it. - Mood:Good
Saturday March 24 200712:28:53 PM |
I'm trying so hard to waste time before starting on life. Though I know that I need to start on it soon. It's just so nice to have a lazy start to the day. Wake up, chill out, watch tv, eat some bacon, play on youthink, etc.

I don't have MUCH to do today, beyond straightening and organizing my room, doing lesson plans for next week, going to the library to return books and get new ones, and going to blockbuster to get Borat. Oh, and take some online course and fill out my accreditation paperwork for my class. Ok, on second thought I do have a bit to do today. I should probably start on it soon. But I'll wait until I've exhausted my time-wasting capacities first.

Any suggestions for books to get?

When was the last time you wished upon a star? - Mood:Good
Thursday March 22 200711:36:30 PM |
Star light
Star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have this wish I wish tonight

I used to wish on the first star of the evening all the time. Since I've grown up, I've either stopped paying attention to stars or stopped wishing things. Either way it's silly.

I started again recently and I'm going to keep it up.

Jiminy Cricket is always going on about wishes and how "they're shining deep down inside of you...because that my friends is where the magic lives..."

So, when was your last star wishing?

My life is crazier than I`d like. - Mood:Good
Wednesday March 21 200710:40:44 PM |
I met Putterer and Politigal last night. My second youthink meetup to date. We met at a dueling pianos bar at one of the Disney resorts. I don't know about them, but I certainly had a swell time.

I may have mentioned this in a thread or two before, signature on The Pants is the best. I almost signed the crotch, but it seemed inappropriate on a first meeting. Instead I signed right at the right pocket. And at Putterer's suggestion I turned the two O's in spoonerism into a mickey head.

Mickey Mouse also signed The Pants.

In other news, work stresses me out less lately than it used to. I've gotten my patience back, through the art of getting regularly f*cked up after work. It's truly a blessing.

I am sick of working 7 days a week and can't wait until that craziness ceases. Maybe then I won't have to turn to intoxication for my woes.

Is it fair - Mood:Good
Tuesday March 20 20076:23:27 PM |
to raise children in an English-speaking country and to never speak English in your home?

I have three kids at school who come from families that do not speak English at home at all. Which means, basically, I have to start with them from scratch. And frankly, I don't think it's fair to them to be put into an English-speaking school with English-speaking students and teachers, without knowing any English.

I am irked. Perhaps even perturbed.

But, tonight I'm meeting Putterer, and you're not!

I'm at my apartment right now. First time here alone since Dave died. It's harder than I thought it would be.

I went into his room and saw virtually all of his things gone. And the stain on the carpet.

I'm here today to finish James's valentine's gift and pack my things (we're moving out).

But wow. This is much more difficult than I anticipated. I feel paralyzed, and I don't know why.

Do me a favor, please. Check out my profile and see if you see black background on the left (where it should be the same light blue as is on the rest of the profile). And respond and let me know. Thanks.

Also, I got $1.87 in tips yesterday! And today starts my 8 day vacation!! boyfriend flies into Orlando tonight at 11-ish. And I have the whole week off to spend with him. And I'm a tad bit thrilled about this.

Life is one crazy bitch sometimes - Mood:Overwhelmed
Monday March 05 200711:49:43 PM |
My roommate passed away nearly two weeks ago. I wasn't able to go to the funeral because it was in WI. But his parents are in town to get his things. I met them today and I'm SO glad I did. I got the closure I needed. I've had lots of support from friends and family, but I needed to talk about him with someone who was missing him too. I feel so bad for his parents (no parent should bury their child), but they're taking it rather well. They're very religious and I think their peace with God makes accepting this a little bit easier.

I just finished a stint of cat sitting. I'm not a cat person by any means, but I was recommended by someone I once dogsat for. The guy paid me $100 for one week of cat feeding and litter scooping! I think one of his cats is my soul-animal-mate. He's always all up on me when I come over.

I remember when... - Mood:Spent
Friday March 02 200712:00:32 AM |
(I can write two journals back to back because I haven't written one in a while and I have sh*t saved up to say!)

That said, I remember when...

Gas was less than a dollar a gallon
Movie tickets were 5-6 dollars
Milk didn't cost more than 3 dollars a gallon
Pay phones cost a quarter
Stamps were 32 cents
2 liters of soda were 99 cents NOT on sale

What is the world coming to?! Madness, I tell you. Sheer unable to be afforded by my pathetic paycheck MADNESS. Seriously, I know milk does a body good but it does my wallet bad! Is there a cow shortage or something?!

Seriously. This has bugged me my ENTIRE LIFE. I have to know. Why do people throw shoes up there? Is it to pwn someone in the best possible way? F*ck you, douchebag! Imma throw your shoes up really high. You will be able to see them but not access them. And if you try, you could be electrocuted.

I'm trying to determine why WSU wouldn't let me input a decimal point in my writing score. And why they have four boxes but I only have 3 scores.

And whether or not my scores are good. The percentile range is not quite as good as I've done on other standardized tests (I don't think...)

Please tell me how many scores you have, what their format is, and what a good score is!

PLEASE. And thank you.

Today I went through one of the hardest things ever - Mood:Bad
Wednesday February 21 200711:13:45 PM |
I don't want to get into too much detail, simply because it is gruesome and horrific and bad enough that I had to see it, I found my 23 year old roommate dead. He had been dead for quite some time when we (my other roommate and I) found him.

We called 911. They instructed us to give CPR to his lifeless body until the paramedics arrived.

I am trying to cope with the loss, as well as the images burned in my mind. It was my first time seeing a dead body, and frankly, I'm most overwhelmed by the lack of dignity death brought him.

I'm very sad. And a little bit lost.

Third Wheel Update - Mood:Good
Saturday February 17 200711:50:10 PM |
So...I went to Universal today, as planned, with the friend I'd invited (who I'd given a comp ticket to).

A third wheel, who'd invited himself the night before, was also there. And, it turns out, invited a FOURTH person along. Of course, he had no way of getting FOURTH person in for free, and then was astonished that the cost to get into both parks was more than $40. Now, as he works at Disney, I find it highly unlikely that he didn't know that ticket prices would be at least 55 bucks or better. For the record, I think it's 62.

Anyway, he told this girl it would be about 35 (according to her account, anyway).

Who invites themselves to things?! - Mood:Good
Friday February 16 200711:27:28 PM |
So...I'm going to Universal tomorrow with a friend. A mutual friend of ours apparently found out we were going and decided to invite himself. He called me and told me to meet them there at 9 AM.

Which, you may know, is a bit early for my day off. I mean, holy sh*t, I get a day off once in a blue moon. I really like to enjoy the sleeping in portion. Especially when I stay up late at night talking to my boyfriend who lives 3 hours behind and can only talk during "nights" due to his ridiculous cellular phone.

And he justifies it by saying that he has to work at 4. Then, it turns out, he calls up a manager at work (he's a friend from work) and convinces her to let him come in two hours later since they are overstaffed already. But calls me back (after my protesting at 9:00 to say I should meet him at 9:45).

Am I right to be irritated by this? I talked to the person I originally invited who claims not to have invited third wheel, and told 3rd wheel to call m

On a hot summer night would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses? - Mood:Sexy
Friday February 16 200712:34:05 PM |
I should be in sexy moods more often.

You know what this calls for? A sexy party!

I'm sooo excited (I just can't hide it). I have a three day weekend! I mean, I know this isn't a big deal, as MOST Americans have this already, what with presidents day and all, BUT it is very unusual for me. And I couldn't be more thrilled.

I have today off, then tomorrow, then Sunday! My plans are to buy a digital camera with the tax refund I got today! (yay for the IRS!) And to take care of some biznazz.

Tomorrow I am going to go play at Universal all day.

And the next day I hope to spend baked if I can locate some baking supplies.

For Valentine's Day, I went out on a date with my boyfriend's mom and aunt. My boyfriend being in a different timezone, that is. It sounds kind of lame to say, but I had a good time with them. I really like his mom, and she really likes me, which is a total first for me and relationships.

So altogether, my life situation gets a big

Sap Central Station - Mood:Good
Sunday February 11 200711:28:09 PM |
Location: My room

I am currently in the process of making my boyfriend's Valentine's gift. I was going to make him a picture frame with puzzle pieces on it that says "You complete me". So at the craft store they had these puzzle cards that you can draw on and whatnot (just 16 piece puzzles, little ones to fit in envelops), so I decided to make him a puzzle too.

The puzzle has a big heart in the middle that says Happy Valentine's Day and around it are quotes about love and friendship that mean something to me.

And I'm waiting on the paint to dry on the picture frame so I can write on the letters. I have to get a glue gun tomorrow to attach the puzzle pieces (painted aqua blue and green). The picture frame itself is painted deep blue.

I also want to include something sexy. If I don't get any better suggestions, I'm going with a book of sexy pictures. But that requires buying a camera with a timer, because I have nobody to take them. Any sexy suggestions

Eye Candy, come hither!!! - Mood:Good
Saturday February 10 20071:23:42 PM |
There aren't enough hot men on television these days. Lots of hot ladies. Why is this? Don't women deserve eye candy too?! (And gay men, for that matter, dammit!!)

Also, I'm being a journal whore. Get over it. Nobody responded on my first try (well, one person did), so I get to try again.

I'm really excited that Obama has announced his run for president. I'm going to get involved in his campaign, because he excites me. Maybe it's just his eloquence, but there's something about him that sceams "presidential". (I don't care how fresh he is, I find it refreshing)

Can anyone tell me how to fix my profile so that the left isn't black?

And how are you today, dear?
(very well I thank you, run away, run away)
