Pretty in pink? - Mood:Good
Saturday February 10 200712:54:35 PM |
I haven't watched it in a while. But it's on lifetime right now, and as I called in to work, I've been wasting time watching it. I haven't had a "slow morning" in SUCH a long time. I'd forgotten how glorious it was to waste the first three hours of a day doing practically nothing.

At any rate, to get to the point, I just watched the montage where she puts together her dress. There's cutting, sewing, pulling, attaching, etc. And then you see her come down in her dress. It's rather disappointing. The dress is kind of...ehnh. Unsexy and not that pretty, really. I mean, Molly Ringwald is pretty, but the dress itself makes me cringe.

Tonight I'm going to stay at my boyfriend's (mom's) house. He won't be there. Neither will she. I'm going over to babysit their dogs. I'm looking forward to sleeping in a bed and hanging out with the doggies again.

I might live with those doggies next year! (And my boyfriend) If I get into WASU that is.

The No A**Hole Rewards Program - Mood:
Friday February 09 20079:09:31 PM |
Spread the word, ladies and gentleman.

I am ready to revolutionize the world.

I have personally practiced the no a**hole rewards program for two years now.

It is a simple program. All you do is NOT reward people who are non-nice individuals.

The most important step is to stop sleeping with people who are non-nice individuals. Even if they're not non-nice individuals to you, being non-nice individuals negates them from getting sex! If everyone stops sleeping with a**holes, they will be forced to change their ways.

Otherwise, just avoid giving them any sort of reward/benefit.

You CAN make a difference.

(I also invite you to join the "don't-sleep-with-republicans" related program)

What`s wrong with that roach? - Mood:Good
Friday February 09 20078:42:23 PM |
One of my students asks me ALL the time... "What's wrong with _____?" and 9 times out of 10, there's nothing wrong with ______. It's just been presented in a way he is unfamiliar with.

I think it's a pretty cute quirk, that I'm sure will pass in no time. But today he asked me both "What's wrong with that roach?" when we saw a beetle crawling on the playground equipment outside and "What's wrong with me?" when he saw a picture of himself on the wall with a surprised look on his face.

I had to explain to the kids that we should leave the beetle alone because he lived outside and we needed to share his home with him. It was a nice little learning experience.

But our time outside was cut short when I had to take the class in after a child pooped their pants.

Those are the big decisions I make. While my friends make big decisions regarding the way their companies run their businesses, I make the decision to cut playtime short to change s

Honestly, they are.

I'm irritated with work. I'm glad today's Friday, but I don't know if I can go back and be patient for another four hours. I don't think I have four hours of patience in me!

I found this to be hilarious:

Littering and... my snot is green again!!! - Mood:Spent
Thursday February 08 200711:04:30 PM |
Having just taken a CPR/first aid course, I’m now fully prepared for the worst. And while I really hope I never have to use my newly acquired skills, a part of me hopes otherwise. A part of me wants to break them out and be a hero. This same part of me doesn’t recognize the fact that the “skills” I learned are not effective at saving lives 100% of the time.

I re-learned CPR, which has changed since last I learned it. I also learned how to operate an automatic defibrillator, how to stop bleeding, what to do in the event of shock, how to treat a burn, how to save someone from choking, among other things. Lots of handy tidbits for the real world.

I took the class for my job at the daycare, but I feel like if I ever use them, it will be at my other job, the roller-coaster, where I anticipate more people are likely to lose consciousness and/or have heart attacks.

Where would you be without the internet? - Mood:Good
Thursday February 01 20078:19:39 PM |
I've got to get dinner but I don't know what. I could get some Chipotle take-out, but I might want to cook. Any suggestions? I'm in the mood for something fantastic.

Also, I'm irritated that I had to delete my last journal for an image that bypassed the swear filter. I mean, it's my own fault for not checking, but I was just going through these webcomics I liked and posting my favorites. It's just indicative of the fact that I don't consider sh*t to be a bad word. It's the word I most often forget to asterisk too.

So, to the point at hand, here's where I'd be-

1. I'd be more productive. I'd study much more
2. I'd socialize more (perhaps drink and smoke more too)
3. I'd read more (both as part of my studying in #1 and for fun)
4. Research would be a pain in the ass again.
5. I'd talk on the phone more and send mail more often.
6. I'd be lost all the time. The best gift the internet has given me is directions to anywhere.

I sliced my thumb today. At the part where the nail hits the skin. Damn does it hurt! I was in such a hurry to open the package I'd gotten that I didn't pay attention to where my hands and sharp implements were placed.

Oh, and I have a cold. It's better than it was yesterday, but it sucks. I haven't gotten for-real sick in a while.

The package was some mail from my house, my W-2's so I can get on my taxes, and some Lay's Dill chips. If you've never tried them, you should. They're the best chip on earth.

So what be ailing you?

Is your crotch hungry, girl? - Mood:Good
Thursday January 25 20078:26:09 PM |
'Cuz its eating your pants!

I started a new job Monday as a preschool teacher at a private daycare that also serves as a pre-kindergarten (headstart-type program) for the Orlando school system.

So far, so good. I really like the job, but my one complaint is that the woman in the room next to me is f*cking bitchy and impatient and lazy. She's nearly intolerable. I don't see why other teachers don't have the same aversion to her as I do.

I'm mad because I missed my 12345th post last night. I was two away, and made a mental note to celebrate it, but then a while later I realized I had passed it without noticing. Mrrr.

I am really weird about numerical things. I really like numbers that have SOME sort of connection to regular life or to me. I love 1112 because it's my birthday. I remember really enjoying my student ID number being 13650, because 650 was half of 13 so it was easy to remember.

I may be lame, but my avy sure isn't!

Make up my mind! - Mood:Good
Saturday January 20 200711:50:04 AM |
I'm a woman and as such am naturally indecisive.

So here's the dilemma.

I don't feel well. I've been tired for the past week (more than a person ought to be after a full night's sleep), but only today have I had any other symptoms. Which is a sore throat.

Not too sore, by any means, but sore.

Now. I REALLY want to work tomorrow. I have a 10 hour shift and can make overtime. Today I only have a 6 hour shift and it's only worth about 40 bucks.

I AM, however, quite broke and trying to make as much money as I can. So 40 bucks would help that cause.

I'm concerned that if I go to work today I'll feel like ass tomorrow and not want to work my 10 hour shift.

I also need to do laundry.

Furthermore, I start a new full time job on Monday for which I do NOT want to be sick whatsoever.

So...youthink...advise me! To call in, or not to call in, that is the question.

Porn stars...what`s in it for them? - Mood:Good
Monday January 15 200711:18:21 AM |
Is it a love of money or a love of sex that keeps the porn industry in business?

("Self esteem, it's all about self esteem in the schools these days. Build the kids' self-esteem, make them feel good about themselves. If everybody grows up with high self-esteem, who is going to dance in our strip clubs? What's going to happen to our porno industry? These women don't just grow on trees. It takes lots of drunk dads missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks. And if that disappears where does that leave me on a Friday night with my new high speed connection?")

I know a billion people have probably had this issue. Or maybe I'm the first.

Regardless, I can't get profile music to work. Minor crisis doesn't give me a link ending in .mp3. And when I try to just add .mp3 on it won't work.

Can someone direct me to a place where uploading music is easy, or explain how to do this please?

Attention Space Travelers: - Mood:Good
Sunday January 14 200712:19:40 AM |
Are my three favorite words in the English language. What are yours?

These words signal the onset of a breakdown spiel, alerting all guests at Space Mountain that we are experiencing technical difficulties at this time.

Technical difficulties are great. You get a break from the monotony of your normal day to either go out on track and reset the ride, or talk to guests about why we’re broken down. Of course, the token answer (and honest one) is always, “I don’t know the nature of the problems, but we will resume flights as soon as we’ve reset the ride.” Most people freak out that it’s something unsafe. “Did somebody die?” “Did a piece of track fall?” But it’s always something boring.

Someone DID almost die recently. Flat-lined and everything. But Reedy Creek saved them.

I know that you can be overwhelmed, and I`m pretty sure you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be "whelmed"? - Mood:Overwhelmed
Thursday January 11 200711:04:29 AM |
I'm whelmed for our country. I've been concerned for a while.

I have faith in our newly elected officials, and I'm holding my breath preparing myself for the inevitable let-down that I know to expect.

But I'm mostly concerned with how apathetic most Americans are about our current situation. Everybody is quick to say they want us out of Iraq, but I think mostly because they're tired of hearing about it. Nobody seems to care that we've got soldiers dropping like flies. Nobody seems to care that we invaded the Iran consulate in Iraq, arresting five staff members, and confiscating documentation and computers. Nobody seems to care about...well...anything.

Is it because we're caught in a consumer frenzy? Is it because we're too busy struggling to make ends meet? Is it both?

My roommate, for instance, couldn't care less what is happening in the world. He's too busy caring about who gets kicked off of America's Next Top Model.

Colonies on the moon - Mood:Good
Wednesday January 10 200712:08:38 PM |
I had a dream that there were colonies being built on the moon. I went to a science center with a river raft ride that showed you the moon up close, and bam, there was a hospital visible, and cars, and all sorts of activity. I ran around trying to tell people that there were colonies on the moon, and nobody cared! To me, it was a big f*cking deal.

It took a few minutes of waking up to realize there were not.

Then, I dreamt my ex-boyfriend called to tell me he had herpes, but that it was given to him by God as punishment for something, so I didn't have to worry about it, but he wanted me to know.

THEN, I got woken up (rudely, on my day off) by some Brazilian dudes I gave a ride home to the other day. I told them I could get them into Disney (after they begged), and then they didn't call at the set time. Well, today they called wanting me to get them in Friday. I don't know if I will. It's SO inconvenient for me. Maybe if they pay me.

Any weird dreams recently?

Y tu mama tambien! - Mood:Confident
Friday January 05 200711:41:26 PM |
I feel so great right now.

I just got off the phone with my boyfriend (who, sadly, left me this morning for the stupid state of Idaho) and was told that his mother REALLY likes me.

SO much so that not only has she invited me over to dinner Sunday night to look at pictures and hang out, but she lectured James on how great I was and how he'd better do right by me and not lose me because I was so great.

I like her a lot too.

Also, I'm a bit amazed that she likes me so much, seeing as how before James left, we helped her move his bed out of his room into the spare, and she saw a condom wrapper for which I was 50% responsible. But rather than looking at me as a hussy, she is cool about it, because she's just a cool lady.

Yay for Trina.

Pineapple juice all around!!

I`ve got good news and bad news... - Mood:Good
Friday January 05 20075:23:26 PM |
The good news is, even though my secret santa didn't pull through, I got a not-so-secret santa gift

Thanks EVER SO to Sonita888 for the lovely bath set she sent me for X-mas. Her not-so-secret gift ought to be arriving soon(ish). We decided to exchange gifts since she'd forgotten to sign up in time and I had an extra Secret Santa gift I'd bought for an X-mas party I was unable to attend. It was a white elephant gift exchange party though, not secret santa. Don't go thinking I cheated someone out of a gift!

The bad news is that my boyfriend and best friend left today for Idaho for school. Which means we must resume our long distance relationship. It was SO glorious to live in the same city for the 3 months we had together. It's going to suck going back to long distance. But alas, we'll make it work. Absence, heart, fonder, etc.

I won't see him again probably until March, then until June, and ugh. Just ugh.

No cuddling. No sex. No playtime. NADA.

I woke up next to someone new! - Mood:Good
Saturday December 30 20069:58:57 AM |
His name is Rufus, and he's about 3 inches long.

He is a lizard.

And his face was a few inches from mine when I woke.

It's so weird to think that 2 years ago, I probably would have screamed, freaked out, and made a big deal out of trying to get the lizard out of my room. Now, however, I kind of like having the friend. I won't trap him or anything. He can just roam around until he's ready to leave.

He's made himself a bed out of my sleep shirt though. That's my one complaint. Way to wear out your welcome, Rufus!

Happiest Place on Earth, MY ASS! - Mood:Disgusted
Saturday December 30 200612:56:30 AM |
After a lovely 11 hours spent working at one of the most popular attractions in the Magic Kingdom, it has come to my attention that I'm an idiot. Why do I work such a stressful job for so little money!?

Seriously, it's so difficult to describe what it's like to work there to someone who hasn't done it. But let me say, it's insane. You're dealing with thousands of people every hour, most of them angry at having to wait in line to be there, and most of them having left their brains at home.

I lost count of the number of guests I yelled at today.

I don't understand why you would come to a theme park, wait in line for an hour and a half, and then ignore every instruction of the ONE person who knows what the f*ck they're doing. Guests don't need Mickey ears. They need listening ears. Dammit.
