Last night I met a rockstar................ - Mood:Good
Thursday August 03 20069:18:39 AM |
Last night I went to a bar in the suburbs for some karaoke action. It was fun, as usual, especially since I got serenaded by a 70 year old. But most importantly, I met a guy who claimed to be Bill Ingle of Iron Butterfly.

He was really trashed and everything he said was slurred, but we talked for a while, and he told me all about his life and how he blamed Keith Richards for his decision to live in Columbia, SC. He said that Keith once told him it was a nice place with friendly people, so he decided to move here.

Chances are he probably made it all up in a drunken haze, but then again maybe not. I'm going to go with "not", for the purposes of making my life seem more interesting.

Exercise Shmexercise - Mood:Spent
Wednesday August 02 20064:18:26 PM |
I'm completely and utterly out of shape. I'm working on fixing this issue, but my muscles are sore as hell.

Any suggestions on foods/vitamins that might keep me from hurting so much until I am in shape again?

Fly me to the moon... - Mood:Good
Wednesday August 02 20062:24:40 PM |
I can't believe it's only Wednesday. This week is DRAGGING on and on and on. I honestly feel like it should be the weekend already.

Life is the same as always. Work sucks bigtime. I think it sucks MOST because there is nobody else here who does what I do, so there's nobody to complain about the suckiness with. I try complaining to my family and friends, but they just don't understand.

I'm pretty excited about my night's plans. If I don't go to karaoke (which has become a weekly excursion these days), I am going to develop my life's soundtrack. It's going to be super-fab (don't even act like it won't).

I'm also excited about my weekend plans. I've decided to take my brother on a surprise trip to the beach on Saturday, since school is about to start back and that sucks bigtime (for him). Well, it may not be a surprise now, if he's reading this, but I doubt that. He hardly ever comes into journals.

Where are you sore? - Mood:Good
Monday July 31 20061:05:02 PM |
Anything troubling you?

In particular, my thighs hurt like a bitch. (And you know how bad a bitch hurts.) My neck is also pretty sore.

I feel like I live a lot of my life being mildly uncomfortable, and I don't like it one bit.

Boiled Peanuts are the best things ever... - Mood:Good
Monday July 31 200611:06:55 AM |
I really, really, really boiled peanuts. Especially when you get one full of salty juicy goodness. Mmm!

I went to Jacksonville this weekend to see my boyfriend. We had a good time, but we were both so exhausted from the drive and working all week, that we weren't up to enjoying each other to our maximum potential. We went to eat at Applebee's a lot, because it was close to the hotel, and had a very strange experience there.

A waitress came by and asked if we'd been helped yet, so we said no and she took our order. Then, about four minutes later, the same girl came up and said the whole spiel again. "Have yall been helped yet?" Um...yes, by you. Duh. But I just said, "Um, yes...we're just waiting on our drinks". It turned out this girl had a twin who worked there too, and they frequented the same tables and worked the same area. Talk about confusing!!! Especially since we had smoked a bowl prior to our arrival. Deja vu to the max.

Internet Blues - Mood:Good
Thursday July 27 20069:26:13 PM |
After spending 40 minutes on hold with the cable company, my internet is back up. For the time being, anyhow.

Apparently my modem is in critical condition, and cannot be swapped at the office, so a technician is scheduled to come here Tuesday to replace it. In the meantime, my internet is going to be iffy at best.

It's a good thing I'm going out of town this weekend, or this would make me VERY grumpy.

In other news, holding for the cable company made me miss Space Mountain. At the beginning of the call a recording came on to say that the wait time was "up to 5 minutes". After waiting far beyond those 5 minutes, I wondered if a lot of people informed the customer service rep, "Your wait time's wrong." Because people used to tell me that at Space Mtn. all the time. Most of the time I didn't care, and there was nothing I could do about it anyway.

What`s hungrier than the wolf? Because whatever it is...that`s what I`m hungry like. - Mood:Good
Wednesday July 26 20066:35:39 PM |
Of all my relationships in life, my relationship with food is the most tenuous.

I love food, and food loves me, but we are so weird together. I get tired of eating the same food over and over. For this reason, I tend to dislike pastas, because I get bored 1/3 of the way into it.

I also cannot eat the ends of fries or doritos. The piece I've been holding between my fingers. Just can't do it.

If I try watching tv while I eat and there's action going on, my stomach shuts down and decides to deprive me from the pleasure of food.

Or, if I go too long without eating, my immense hunger turns into nausea and I can't eat for another few hours.

I really wish food and I could work it out. We're really a good match. Honest.

On a different note, I'm going to Jacksonville this weekend to see my boyfriend and I want to do something cute/sexy/sweet/awesome. It can be as simple as lingerie and booze, but I'd like suggestions if you've got any.

MySpace...How I loathe thee... - Mood:Good
Tuesday July 25 20069:45:05 AM |
I need to start being more selective about who I befriend on myspace. Because I'll befriend somebody, only to find that they post really annoying, stupid bulletins on a daily basis.

Exhibit A:


Repost this in 5 min under "MY NEW WIFEY/HUBBIE" If you Truly Love GOD.

98% of teens won't stand up for God.

{P.S. dont ignore.}

+-You never know when God is testing

What. The. F*ck.

Seriously. I don't advertise my belief system on a daily basis, and I don't really see why it's necessary for others to do so. "Are you in the Christian club?! If so, repost this! If not, have fun in hell!"

And what makes people think that posting a bulletin on myspace is "standing up for God"? If you're going to truly stand up for God, how about doing so by showing compassion to those without food.

Travelocity, I am REAL MANGRY right now!!!! - Mood:Enraged
Monday July 24 20064:21:17 PM |
So I'm going to Jacksonville this weekend to spend the weekend with my man. His computer is down so he left it to me to make the reservation, on his card, having given me all his CC information.

So I did so last night, and completely f-ed up the dates. So I'm on the phone now to fix it, and apparently they've already charged the card and cannot refund it immediately, it takes 30 business days. What kind of crazy bullsh*t is that?

And now I'm on hold for a supervisor to inquire what kind of crazy bullsh*t this is, and I've been on hold for ten minutes.

In summation, travelocity and their stupid gnome suck at life.

Grocery Bitch... - Mood:Overwhelmed
Sunday July 23 20064:01:16 PM |
I hate living at home!!

It is literally impossible for me to leave my house to run errands for myself without being asked to do something for someone else.

"Ashley, on your way home from work, I need you to stop and get hamburger buns and charcoal."

"Ashley, while you're out getting your hair cut, could you pick up some extra fish for tonight?" "Oh, and we need some liquid dish detergent." "And we need cigarettes" "And we need milk."

F*cking-A. I am not a grocery bitch. I guess it's payback for all the times in high school when I didn't have a car/license and couldn't be sent on stupid errands.

In summation, UGH!!!

The best things in life really ARE free... - Mood:Good
Saturday July 22 200610:46:34 PM |
Once upon a time, I went on a roadtrip to San Francisco, CA. It took four or five…or maybe six days to get there. Actually, timing is relatively unimportant to my story. And by “relatively unimportant”, I mean it has absolutely no bearing on what I’m going to say at all.

At any rate, we arrived in San Francisco with smiles on our faces and hats on our heads (mine was an alligator hat, and his was Jelly Belly and paper). We spent our first day wandering around and getting lost in the city. At one point, we happened upon a park in the middle of downtown.

Being naturally adventurous, we opted to explore the park, and went on our merry way. We had to climb many steps in our exploration, as the region was highly mountainous, and there was often nowhere to go but up.

Unpopular Religious Thoughts... - Mood:Good
Friday July 21 20064:04:34 PM |
I have a pretty unpopular thought on religion, and I'm interested to know what others think. I know I'm probably going to get some attacks on this thread, and I'm prepared for that, but be advised that what I'm about to say is not being said to try to discount any religion.

That being said, I often wonder if people over-praise Jesus for dying for the world's sins. Simply put, if given the option by God to either die myself and save all of mankind forever from damnation, or to opt not to, and leave mankind to fend for themselves, I would give my life up. Even if it meant a horrific death that included torture and whipping and nails through my flesh.

I hate to pull a slizer here, and I'm not saying that giving your life for the world isn't worthy of praise, but I am saying that if in the same situation, I'd have done the same.

Your thoughts?

Don`t Click Unless Prepared for Too Much Information - Mood:Anxious
Thursday July 20 20068:50:17 PM |
I just had the greenest poop I've ever seen. Not a hint of brown was in this green poop. It was just a bold, darkish green. I'm very concerned about this. I know that poop can vary in color, but what is the deal? If anyone has any advice or thoughts to share on this matter, I'd really like to hear them, because frankly green poop scares me.

Midwesterners, Disney, and peppers... - Mood:Good
Thursday July 20 20061:39:38 PM |
Actually, let's reverse the title. Peppers first.

I got a sub sandwich today and I asked for crushed red peppers so the woman puts on slices of some green hot pepper. What made her think that was cool? First, I asked for crushed red peppers. Did she not notice that the peppers she applied where not crushed? And secondly, I asked for red peppers, which these clearly were not. It was pretty obviously not crushed red pepper, and I am mangry about it. (Yes, mangry...a mixture of mad and angry...)

Disney. I miss Disney like whoa. I might even try to get a real job there when I move back. At any rate, let's discuss Disney. What are your thoughts? Have you ever ridden the best ride ever...Space Mountain? I it.

Last...midwesterners. I am not one for stereotypes, but these people are so collectively weird. And, I think they are precisely what is wrong with America.

I've been trying to do a better job at life lately, but it's so hard!!!

I've been working out -ish. And eating right. -Ish. And today I totally did not follow it in the least, because instead of eating the salad and lean pocket I packed for lunch, I had a vanilla shake and a chilicheeseburger basket. It was delicious, but it sucks to fail.

I just picked up my lunch from the Mexican place, and instead of giving me just my change, he gave me my change PLUS the money I'd given him to begin with. Unfortunately, my honesty mode kicked in and I gave it back.

Kids Say the Darndest Things - Mood:Good
Wednesday July 12 200610:28:56 AM |
And by "kids", I mean 19-year old southern frat boys. And by "darndest things" I mean "most ignorant words I've ever heard uttered".

Last night, I went out with my friend Jay Balls. We were supposed to go out for a drink, but when he picked me up he offered that we could go to his friend's house and smoke up. I felt this was a good idea, so we went. And who should his friends be but a couple of southern frat boys. There were two, and the first was alright, but the second not so much. We were discussing how it was a big deal at work that we imaged our first black patient (since we deal with melanoma victims and it's unusual to have black patients in the industry), and I'm discussing with them why that is, and this prick is like, "It's because we live in houses and they don't!" What a stupid f*cking moron! I hate the south sometimes.

It wasn't until last year that I realized how intolerant southerners truly were, and whoa. What a

Lecture from the Boss-Man... - Mood:Good
Tuesday July 11 20065:11:03 PM |
So I went to the boss's office today to ask when my insurance coverage would begin. I became a full-time employee in the middle of June, and then went on my trip, and haven't had time to worry about it until now.

Unfortunately, he and another guy were sitting around talking, so I joined the bullsh*t session with them for a while first.

I found out all about my boss's obsession with peanut butter and what types of bread were everyone's favorite (challah is mine). Then it turned into an "Ashley informational session". "So, Ashley, tell me what you look for in a guy?" "Well, I like a guy who's silly, funny, and fun." "Oh, well, nobody like that around here."
"No, definitely not."
"So this guy you're dating, tell me about him?"
"He's silly and funny and fun. And has a cool accent. And I like him a lot, and we've been really good friends for a while."

AAA Discount my ass! - Mood:Good
Tuesday July 11 200610:06:34 AM |
I've been annoyed about this for a while.

A lot of motels advertise that they give discounts to AAA members. Then you ask their price, and they tell you the pre-discounted price. Which means, either there is no discount, or they are giving it to everyone regardless of AAA-status, which again translates to "there is no discount". You can't advertise something as a benefit of having AAA, and then give it to flippin' everyone!

Why is this place so stupid sometimes?

So if you`re from Africa...Why are you white? - Mood:Good
Monday July 10 20063:36:30 PM |
Pretty good day so far. It appears that we may be hiring someone soon to help me with the ridiculous amount of work I have to do. (yay!)

So...my grandmother and I were talking on the phone, and she was telling me how much she liked my new guy. Then she said, "I need to tell him though, that he doesn't need to go around telling people that he's part-black. You can't even tell looking at him." To which I said:

He brought it up, in a discussion about racial tension, and how when he was little a teacher had taught him some pretty crazy sh*t about black people, and that afterwards his teacher found out his dad was black and felt bad about it.

This is a pretty normal way to bring up one's heritage. It's not like he just walked in the door advertising it.

Do I have a right to be irritated that my grandmother said this? She had no issues talking about our ancestors in England, so why should she care that he mentioned his ethnicity?

Ugh.
