Confederate Flag--Heritage/Hate/Hype? - Mood:Bored
Friday October 06 20069:53:38 AM |
Driving past the State House yesterday and gazing upon the Confederate flag that flies directly facing Main Street, I wondered what others thought of this.

The Confederate flag was originally flown atop the State House, but was moved to the State House grounds as a compromise with those who wanted it removed entirely.

Personally, I think if you're going for heritage, a museum or a nice case in the State House is the place to put it.

Tell me your thoughts if you have them.

Holy Pajama Pants, Batman!!! - Mood:Amazed
Thursday October 05 20069:10:56 PM |
I have recently discovered two things about YouThink I had never before known/tried.

The first is the "Jump to" feature in the righthand corner. I'd seen it, but never realized how many useful places you can jump to, as I'd never opened it up. Recently I accidentally clicked on it and voila. Wherever you want to go, baby, he'll take you there.

Secondly, I just learned that if you click an avy to look at it, then click it a second time it will disappear.

This valuable knowledge is going to improve my YouThinking threefold.

Annoyed Already!! - Mood:Confused
Thursday October 05 200610:50:59 AM |
And it's not even 11:00!

One of my coworkers just came in and sat down while I was having a conversation with my mom about the snake we have living in our yard.

She's pretty freaked out about it, and angry that nobody has offered help, so I'm trying to calm her fears about the snake (which is not poisonous).

The coworker sits for a minute, then gets tired of waiting, gets up and mutters something along the lines of "Screw this..."

Then I get off the phone with my mom and ask what he needed. "What can I do for you?" And he's pissy and says, nothing, I'll take care of it myself.

What the f*ck? You can't expect someone to end a conversation to talk to you when you walk in during the middle of it. I can understand being mad if I picked up a personal call in the middle of a conversation with him, but I was on the phone when he came in.

Ugh times about a thousand.

And this is one of the coworkers I usually like!!!

I`ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts! - Mood:Good
Wednesday October 04 20063:52:06 PM |
And by coconuts, I mean posts. And by “lovely bunch of,” I mean 10,000.

I feel so oddly accomplished.

I dedicate this first and foremost to Mitchzilla, without whom I never would have found the site...

-And subsequently to Twindsor...without whom I may have never posted in journals...
-to Skeener...without whom I would have never spoken to a Yter by phone...
-to Philo...for recently restoring my faith in YT at a time when I was burned out
-and to all of you I enjoy but do not talk to (you probably don't know who you are, but if I listed everybody it would be way too long, a little pointless, and I'd invariably leave someone out)

So to keep this from being a spammy “Look how many posts I have...in your face n00bs!” kind of journal, a few things on my life:

Morning ramble (YT dream included) - Mood:Good
Tuesday October 03 20069:23:53 AM |
I had my first YT dream last night. All I can remember, is that Raphael and I went to Medieval Times and cheered on the green knight.

I really, really, REALLY wish I could hang on to my dreams for longer than I can. If I could add one skill to my current skill-set, that would be it.

I could put it on my resume.

"Well, I'm organized, great with customer service, and I can remember my dreams."

I didn't get much sleep last night because I stayed up late talking to my boyfriend. I love that most nights we talk he kind of drifts off to sleep at the end of the conversation and I get to listen to his incoherent rambling..."Exit to your left please..."

He had a couple over last night who he knows from work. Apparently the girl asked to try on his sister's and mom's formal dresses (hanging in the computer room's closet).

I think this is crazy. I would never ask to try on someone random's dresses.

She also asked if she could use his mom

Subpar Sunday - Mood: terrible, horrible, no good,
Sunday October 01 20067:37:24 PM |
Today hasn’t been a very good one.

It started with me waking up to immense back pain from lifting heavy boxes yesterday. And waking up at 9:41 AM, which is earlier than I’d like to wake up on a Sunday morning with no obligations. But alas, there was too much noise to sleep.

On top of that, I had arts and crafts hour today, and got all sorts of paint under my fingernails. Now they need some serious brushing.

When I fixed myself lunch, it was kind of tasteless and ehnh.

I inventoried my kitchen supplies for moving, and found that one platter, two plates, and two glasses have not survived being jostled around in the toolshed and are broken.

Oh, and Hot Fire, one of my two pipes, has been broken as well.

And my immense back pain has continued literally all day.

The arts and crafts turned out well, though. I made some marble paintings and a Space Mountain shrinkydink (and some other way less cool shrinkydinks).

So let's play the popularity game. Tell me your thoughts on who...

Has the best avatars?
Is the smartest Yter?
Is the funniest Yter?
Is the most sexalicious Yter of each gender?

Have you, or someone you know, been victimized by the penis fairy? Speak out here. - Mood:Bored
Wednesday September 27 200610:49:18 AM |
Penises.

Faces.

Markers.

Three seemingly innocent things, that when combined, can become frightening, and in some cases...permanent.

Have you, or someone you know, been victimized by the penis fairy?

Exhibit A:


Have you ever BEEN the penis fairy yourself?

I hope you used non-permanent markers.

In college, I often penised up my friends when they passed out drunk. One notable time was the night prior to going out to a nice lunch with my best friend's parents. She got a nice red penis on her face, which bled onto her pillow AND was impossible to entirely remove.

Oops.

Since then I have refrained from penising faces.

Maturity has set in.

The Attack of the Lovebugs AND Gonad-Sucking Exes - Mood:Good
Saturday September 23 20064:04:49 PM |
A few things.

Thing 1: Drove to Orlando Wednesday. Pretty uneventful drive, with the exception of the ATTACK OF THE KILLER LOVE-BUGS!!!! I stopped to get gas somewhere along the way, only to be swarmed by these vicious sex-crazed flies. Those who are unfamiliar with lovebugs, I present to you, exhibit A:

Sure, it looks all sweet and romantic and sexy until you realize that they fly around like this, and have no qualms doing their dirty deeds all up on your thighs, arms, hair, and anywhere else they care to land. Grossness. I could barely pump gas. I'm sure it was quite a scene to watch...me flailing to get the bugs off of me, while trying to pump at the same time.

Best REAL Line of All Time - Mood:Good
Wednesday September 20 20067:44:54 AM |
"Baby...let's have a quickie before the movie."

"No, we'll be late"

"Come on..."

"No, we won't have time to get seated and get drinks."

"But...I already took my shoes off!!!"

This one worked on me. What's the best line ever to have worked on you?

Also, I am peacing out today to go see my boyfriend in O-Town. Yay for getting some. In your collective face.

WHY do insurance companies make it so F*CKING difficult to speak to a human being?!

I have to enter in a ridiculous amount of information into the "voice-activated response unit" before I can even TRANSFER to a human being, who is just going to ask me the same f*cking information ALL OVER again.

First bikini wax...help wanted. - Mood:Good
Sunday September 17 20062:25:49 PM |
So, I'd like to get a professional bikini wax (I've done them myself before), but I don't know where to go.

I usually get my hair cut at the Hair Cuttery or some similar establishment, so I don't have a salon I can turn to.

Where should I go?

Somebody teach me how to kick ass. - Mood:Feisty
Sunday September 17 200612:22:38 AM |
I got hit on twice today (once in real life and once by phone). The phone one was rather odd and in the form of a voicemail. Quite possibly the weirdest voicemail ever. I couldn't make it all out, because it was very low-volume mumbling, but what I DID make out was "Your boss gave me your number", "I'm light-skinned with dark eyes", "My girlfriend just broke up with me", "I'm looking for a lady friend", and "My car is nicely detailed". What's even stranger is that I had no missed calls. Just the random voicemail.

So then I went to the mall today, to this toy store that specializes in harder-to-find toys. I was looking for a building set, something like legos, but the closest they came was a coin-building set. Which of course requires that you have spare coins to use, which I don't.

Who else pays attention to this? - Mood:Good
Friday September 15 200610:01:18 PM |
You know you do. And if you don't, it's time to start.

Do you ever privately note which threads (and by association members, but the question is specifically about the threads) get more attention from the opposite sex? I don't mean threads titled "Vaginas inside!" or something, but it just seems like certain people always have the girls or fellas flocking to their threads. (ColtonKane, for instance. He's quite popular with the ladies...)

Do you pay attention to the gender breakdown of your own journal's posters?

In other news, the word "orange" has been on my mind a lot today. First, because I don't think any word rhymes with orange, and secondly, because I wondered, which came first, the fruit or the color? Which was named for which? Is there a synonym for either?

Things to be Mangry About This Afternoon:

1. Patients who get agitated when I give them a reminder call about an appointment. Is this not a standard procedure among medical offices? Don't your doctors offices GENERALLY give you a reminder call or card in advance of a scheduled appointment. It's especially angering when it's not the patient I speak to, but rather the spouse.
"I'm sure he has that on his calendar". Well I should damn well hope so, but if you wouldn't mind mentioning it over dinner, I'd appreciate it.

2. Being ignored. Everytime I post a thread, it seems the substantial portion gets ignored, and people comment on the "fluff". I really, really, really wish people would comment on the substance sometimes. (Generally this only happens when I post a serious journal). Furthermore, I get mangry when I make witty comments that get completely ignored.

3. It is Thursday, the biggest tease of the week.

What are you mangry about?

Is there anything fluffier than a cloud? - Mood:Good
Wednesday September 13 20069:41:32 PM |
If there is, I don't want to know about it!

My tongue is still in pain from the papercut it received earlier. =

So, I’m rather disappointed tonight because it has come to my attention that the person I’d always counted on as being the one friend I’d have for life (BFF) is probably not going to be my best friend for life. Especially considering that she’s not my best friend currently.

She was in town this weekend, so I hung out with her, her sister, and her sister’s boyfriend Saturday night. To be honest, I had a very blah time. They had all gone to dinner, so we didn’t start hanging out until about 11. They’d all been drinking and continued to do so, but I did not as I was planning to drive back home later. Even with the alcohol, their fun level was pretty low.

Annoyance of the highest degree. - Mood:Bad
Tuesday September 12 20061:48:03 PM |
Ugh times infinity!

I'm so irritated with my job and boss right now, thank God I'm leaving in October.

First, my boss has made a point of asking me why I'm moving to Orlando about a billion times now. "Is this boy really worth that?" FOR THE TRILLIONTH TIME I AM NOT MOVING FOR HIM! It happens that he lives there. It also happens that I have many other friends that live there. It also happens that I enjoy the city and just want to get the hell out of Columbia finally.

Also, I've been asked to do a follow up on an issue we've been having that I already know the answer to. Why must I call them BACK and ask these questions all over again, when I ALREADY KNOW what the answer will be!? When I am f*cking TELLING YOU THE ANSWER.

I know it's confusing to you, but please just trust me that I have pursued this to the fullest and know what our next course of action ought to be. Don't make me follow it up for ANOTHER week or two just to satisfy your stubbornness.

These are just a couple of my cravings
Everything it seems I like's a little bit stronger, a little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me

^Story of my life.

I'm getting the run around from work right now. I've been lacking insurance coverage since June, when I became a full time employee. It is September. I am leaving this position in mid-October, but would really like to use the insurance while I've got it to visit my doctors here one last time before moving. And I haven't been to the doctor in a REALLY long time because I've been uninsured for a REALLY long time.

When I originally got the coverage, I sat down with my boss and a man named Dinwoodie, and we filled out information to get me on the policy (basic health history stuff).
