Rocket trains in MO-tion. - Mood:Good
Monday April 16 20079:24:30 PM |
Next weekend, I'm scheduled to work Grad Night. Otherwise known as Night of Hell. My shift is 7:30 PM-4:45 AM. And I'm to be back in for my next shift at 1:45 PM.

I will be SO glad to be rid of this job's obligations. But I'll be sad to be rid of the job. I doubt I'll wait long before I go reapply and get the job all over again, as a seasonal employee this time, where I won't be required to work 2 days a week.

What I will miss most:
Spieling to guests when we break down.

"I'm terribly sorry but we are currently closed for problems of a technical nature. We don't know how long it will be before we're back up and running, but you're welcome to check back with us or get a fastpass to come visit us later."

At my other job there was another snake today. This makes the second in two weeks. He/she was killed though, and this makes me sad

Also, we're having a Happy Earth Day celebration this Friday, so if anyone has any suggestions for that, pleas

I'm thinking of taking a yoga class. Breathing and Meditation or Yoga for your Back?

Also, I'm quitting my job today. Not my full-time job but the one at Disney. I'll have to wait six months to get rehired. I'm minorly elated though.

I woke up far later than I wanted today. I don't work until 3 and I wanted to wake up and get things done. But my boyfriend, who is 3 hours behind me, called me at 2:30 and when he found I didn't work until 3 demanded I talk to him. So I gave in. This is why I can never get anything accomplished.

Youthink, you`ve really let yourself go. - Mood:Good
Friday April 13 20076:51:01 PM |
Didn't there used to be a bunch more people on youthink all the time?

Where did they go? Where can I find them? I miss THAT youthink. The one with more than 40 members on at any given time.


At work, I've been asked three times by three different coworkers if I have kids. I reply that I don't, and their response is always the same. "Oh, you don't want any?" No, just because I don't have any at the tender age of 24 doesn't mean I don't want them. I'm just still cool with living my life for me. Sorry to be so self-absorbed.

I hope this is within the post limit, as I don't have a character counter.

But please not from that spot!!!

Why did the mosquito bite me on the heel and the toe?

Did he buzz about trying to decipher the most ridiculous spot for me to itch?

Was it the tastiest?

I'm very mad at him right now, and I hope he's been squished up.

I rarely hope such things for insects, but this one has really bugged me (pun entirely intended).

I sing a song with the kids I teach about bringing home a baby bumblebee and making mommy proud by squishing him up. Well, it starts out innocently enough. Just bringing Mom the bee. Then the bee stings you. So then you squish him up and wash him off. At any rate, the chorus goes, "Won't my mommy be so proud of me?" I don't like the message of the song, but it's got good hand motions so I sing it anyway.

I do make a point of telling kids not to squish insects outside. I tell them that the bugs live there and we're invading on their turf.

Is Big Thunder Mtn. Running? - Mood:Good
Sunday April 01 20074:41:55 PM |
I really didn't think this through. I was scheduled a shift at Space Mtn and called in because I called in yesterday. is April Fool's Day. Which is the best day to work at Disney. You can prank the guests and it's ok. And you can prank other rides!

"Is your attraction running?"
"Then you'd better go catch it!"


Or you can call up unload.
"This is Tower. Do you have any Up-G back in storage?"
"Yeah, can you check and see if we have a bottle in storage?"
"What's Up-G?"
"Not much, what's up with you!?"

I crack myself up.

YTPSH: Calling all YT photographers and bitches with cameras! This means you. - Mood:Happy
Sunday April 01 200712:44:37 PM |
I hate writing medium sized subject lines. It either has to be short or long. Usually loooong.

So, that important piece of information being stated, I'd like to know who would be interested in doing a YT photo scavenger hunt.

It works something like this.

I give out a list of things to take pictures with.

You take pictures with these things.

You post the pictures in a thread created for the purpose of this contest.

The person who gets the most pictures/points wins.

The logistics are still a smidge hazy, but, before coming up with the details, I'm curious to know if there are enough people willing to participate.

There would be prizes involved for the winners, but believe me, it's hella fun to do. I've done one before and it was a blast. And, it gets you out of the house having fun with yourself.

Play with yourself, you always win.

Sunday April 01 200712:36:14 PM |
I'm SO mangry. I'm missing Torke-Easter this year.

Torke-Easter is the best Easter celebration on the planet. It goes something like this.

Night before Easter: Getting trashed and decorating Easter eggs. Also, start of Ugliest Easter Egg contest (you have the whole night to douse your egg in chemicals and the like to try to make it as ugly as you can)

Morning of Easter: Breakfast (with fresh real bacon), Ugliest Easter Egg judging, basket hunt (can take up to an hour), followed by easter egg hunt, in which easter eggs are filled with one of three things. Candy, money, or a sticker for a prize. Monetary prizes range from $.25-$10. This is followed by the sticker-prizes, in which we take turns cashing in our stickers for prizes.

NOTHING is better than Torke Easter.

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 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

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?

Star light

First star I see 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?

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 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.

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.

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
