Riding the spinner, drunken karaoke, breakdancing ninjas, and MORE. - Mood:Hysterical
Saturday October 14 200611:40:19 PM |
Well, I’ve just gotten back from meeting my first YTers. I’m really pleased with the experience.

I was told that pictures had already been posted from the event, but searching for them I didn’t find any. I’m a little concerned about them because I’m not sure I remember taking them all.

I was relieved to find out that other YTers are just ordinary people. I don’t know if anyone else gets this experience, but I find that when I talk to people on the internet, I automatically assume the worst about them (that being that they are just creepy stalkers who live behind computers avoiding reality). Perhaps this is an irrational thought pattern, but Dateline has me scared of the computer. But you’ll be relieved to know that they turned out to be just normal people like me who happen to be addicted to this ridiculous website. I mean, they may be creepy stalkers TOO, but at least they’re as fun to hang out with in person as

Friday October 13 200611:10:15 AM |
^I'm not really depressed. But it was the coldest mood, and that's the mood I'm in. "Cold." And also lazy. Too lazy to adapt the mood.

So it's 60 degrees out and our air conditioning is on full blast at 65!!! This is ridiculous. I'm getting tired of these motherf*cking thermostats in this motherf*cking house.

The reasoning behind the big freeze is "We're packing up and doing a lot around the house so we need to cool off." Well if that's the case, go outside! It's nice and cool out there. And leave the house COMFORTABLE.

Can't wait to go to Greenville and meet some YTers and ninjas.

Vote for which Halloween costume I should order!!! - Mood:Happy
Monday October 09 200611:38:26 AM |
So my replacement (for when I leave this job in four days' time) is not going to be taking the job after all. Which means they have no replacement for me.

I doubt they can hire someone and give me time to train them in the next three days and nobody has told me what the contingency plan is yet. Assuming there is one.

For some reason this makes me laugh. I feel like they haven't done enough to find someone and have sat and dragged their feet. I gave them OVER a month's notice.

Anyway, not something I will lose sleep over!

So I need your help picking a costume. If you have seen one better than the one pictured (for less than about $45), let me know!

Option A: Minnie Mouse

Option B: Pirate Wench

Option C: Pirate Wench 2

Option D: ???

Please send help.

Riddle me this one. - Mood:Disgusted
Sunday October 08 20061:23:45 PM |
I've noticed a LOT of criticism of others over their looks lately (via YT, that is).

I want to know why.

Is it motivated by an existing dislike of a person's personality, and seen as another way to get under their skin?

Does it make you feel better by comparison knowing that there is someone who is that much less attractive than you? And you feel it necessary to point this newfound power out?

Or are people just mean?

Would you be insulting these people to their faces, about the way genetic assignment they ended up with?

Let`s play isketch! - Mood:Hopeful
Saturday October 07 200611:56:22 PM |
Anyone? I've been craving it for a while.

I'm trying to make this a journal, but there's nothing to report on my life. My boyfriend appears to be going crazy from lack of sleep and refuses to listen to my good advice.

I spent today doing nothing, and I'm pretty happy with that decision.

Now...come play with me!!

I think it`s time we stop, hey, what`s that sound? - Mood:Spent
Friday October 06 20069:43:35 PM |
I really wish we had a mood write-in box. I'm far too lazy to go through the trouble of putting in my own.

For the record, my mood is moody.

It's music downloading time and I need to axe, what should I download?

I also wanted to axe, what is your cell phone's ring tone?

Mine's been the intro to Funkytown for a long time, but I'm changing it to the Haunted Mansion song (Grim Grinning Ghosts) as of this moment. It's seasonal now.

This legal system can kiss my ass. - Mood:Confused
Friday October 06 20064:40:28 PM |
My mind is going everywhere at once right now.

Nearly two years ago, there was an incident involving me pursuing legal action against a foreigner here on a student visa.

I just found out that the person in question has since skipped the country, after failing to submit his passport.

He has apparently tried to get back into the country since then, but lost his student visa due to poor grades.

Which means that he may escape prosecution altogether.

And now, the memories of everything that happened are at the forefront of my mind again.

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!!!

Six day countdown

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 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).

I can't believe I'm posting one of these...BUT...journals is kind of substance-empty at the moment anyway.

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

Has the best thread titles?
Has the best screenname?
Has the best profiles?
Has the best avatars?
Is the smartest Yter?
Is the funniest Yter?
Is the most sexalicious Yter of each gender?
You would MOST like to meet?

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



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.


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 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.
