Don`t Trust Lighters. - Mood:Good
Monday August 21 20066:16:52 PM |
I generally hate reading journals that start out… “Today was an eventful day” and then proceed to tell all of the “events”, which weren’t really so eventful afterall.
But…today was really a pretty eventful day.

I had jury duty at 11, which was late enough to justify not going to work first. Because honestly, what work could I get done in an hour’s time? Not much, that’s what.
So I slept in this morning until 9:20 AM!!!
Which is 20 past when I’d usually be at work. Yay for me.

I got to jury duty to find that the court’s parking lot is only 20-cars big, and 10 of these were reserved, and the others were already taken. So, I parked across the street, and crossed a pretty busy piece of road, blatantly jaywalking directly in front of the police station. I’m such a rebel.

Once I’d signed in and sat down, it got really boring, so I read some of Freakonomics. I’ve really enjoyed it

Why can't Bush answer a direct question? Is it a-because he doesn't understand the question, or b-because he doesn't have a real answer to the question?

Example: Press conference currently on, Bush is asked about whether or not there are any plans to change the current strategy in Iraq (since violence has increased steadily). He harps on and on about how we can't leave Iraq right now. The journalist reiterates that she isn't asking about leaving Iraq, she's asking about other strategies for Iraq, and what does Bush go back to? Of course another spiel about how we cannot leave Iraq.

Bush frustrates me sooooo much.

Saturday August 19 200612:11:22 AM | I've learned a valuable lesson in adulthood. As the oldest child in a family, you never stop being the built-in-babysitter. My mom got tickets to a race in October and just ASSUMED I could stay home with my brother that weekend. Unfortunately for her I have plans that weekend for a YT meetup, in fact. Urgh.

And I just got saddled with watching my 10 year old cousin for a couple of hours while my brother and other cousin went off playing video games. I just put him to bed (which shouldn't have been my responsibility, but eh, someone's got to do it), so now, I think the time has come.

YT, I'm ready for you to ask me anything.

Go on, get to it.

F*ck Mary Schafer! - Mood:Good
Wednesday August 16 20061:01:55 PM |
So, my boyfriend HATES this woman, Mary Schafer. For a long list of reasons that don't deserve my breath, really. But, he wants to think of a way to get revenge on her for being a horrible, worthless human being. She is his former boss, so it could be work-related or not.

Any ideas for good revenge tactics?

I know you are a ruthless crowd. Tell me the secrets to your ruthlessness.

XXX (boyfriend, crazy, ex) - Mood:Bad
Tuesday August 15 200611:49:42 PM |
We all have them. I just happen to have more and worse than most.

So my most recent boyfriend was Chuck. He and I were not a good match. He over-adored and idolized me. He hated all of my best friends out of jealousy because they "took away from his time".

Before we dated we got along fine as friends, but as soon as we started dating he lost the capacity to be fun. Alongside that he gained the capacity to seriously freak out any time we had a slight disagreement.

Mostly what got to me about him was the immense insecurity he developed when we started dating. Utter lack of self-confidence is a COMPLETE turnoff.

I'm kind of glad we dated because he taught me all the reasons to NEVER be clingy.

Is it just me, or are beauty pageants really, really strange? Especially with people under the age of 18. Like, let's have you waltz around and strut it in a bathing suit, to be judged on your perfection as a person. Granted, they do have "interviews" and "talent competitions", but it's mostly a beauty contest.

It just seems so...strange.

I have officially begun paying off the little debts I've had hanging over me since college.

I took my lunch break and went and sat at the bank for half an hour waiting to be waited on, then finally got waited on, waited 15 minutes for that process to unfold, and then went to get some lunch. I'm really glad to have one less thing to worry myself about.

And the lunch I got is delicious. One beef taco and one chalupa. The guy at the restaurant was like, "You do know it's not like a chalupa at Taco Bell, right?" Um, duh.

I have a meeting today at 4, which is scheduled to run past 5:30 (which is when I'd otherwise be off). If it does go into the evening, however, we get dinner provided. So it's not SO bad. I requested the meeting to be held tonight because I don't do anything fun on Tuesdays and there's nothing good on television.

Hahaha, the trickery of Ashley.

So, how's it hanging?

Over dinner, my family and I were discussing imaginary friends.

I never had any, but my brother certainly did.

His name was Poo-Poo. He was orange. He lived in an orange house. He had an orange dog. And green hair.

That's all any of us seem to remember about him.

Did you ever have any imaginary friends? What were they like?

Youthink is the craziest website I've ever been to.

First, I want to know how people rate avies and profiles. I can't stand to see a really good one get rated something relatively low. For instance, PigeonPerson's guitar-tongue thing going on. I really love this avatar. It just got a "6, cuz I like guitars". I think 6 is relatively low. I mean, not that the rate the avy or rate the profile threads mean anything. It's all completely meaningless. But we should at least have a standard.

Secondly, I want to know what is up with GMYT. I sometimes post in this thread, and it goes on and on and on, but it's always full of pleasantries and nothing more. Perhaps this is where diffident should reside.

Thirdly, why is it that even when this place is dead and boring me to death I cannot leave? I guess I have faith that any second it's going to pick up and get better. Alas...

In the white room, with black curtains, in the station... - Mood:Good
Friday August 11 20069:23:47 PM |
Oh wow.

I feel like such a loser when I'm home at night on the weekends. It's a shame, because it happens a lot.

I just don't know enough people around here. And I really don't want to invest the time to get to know anyone. I'll just continue to whine about being a loser until I move.

Which I cannot wait for. And I unfortunately have to, because I have to save up some money while I'm making a lot of it.

Work today was SO much more bearable than usual. We had some Friday afternoon beer drinking, which always tends to improve my day. And I got new office furniture of a giant table to take up my empty wall. My office looks so much cuter now.

On the other hand, I'm kind of glad I'm a loser. I don't much FEEL like going out really. I haven't felt well the past few days But I still lament my loserness, knowing that had I wanted to go out, I could not have.

Oh, and I also got my CD from grrlygirl! I'm about to listen to it

What do you think of when you hear "phone date"?

I told my boyfriend the night before last that I wanted a phone date soon. We're a long-distance relationship and so we don't get real dates. We talk regularly, but lately we've only been able to talk for half an hour before we both go to bed, when I'm tired as hell and not up to talking.

So I requested a phone date where we could talk earlier and for a while. My boyfriend was like, sure, we'll do it tomorrow.

Well, then tomorrow rolled around and he called me at 6:30 and told me he was going out with a friend of his to see Talladega Nights. I was like, what about the phone date? Apparently he thought he could fit it in before he went to the movie and do it both.

I was pretty mad about this, especially because he called at 6:30 and I had to go out to dinner with my family.

I got home and he called me and had cancelled the movie date for the phone date, which of course made me happier. But wha

Mother Dearest - Mood:Perturbed
Thursday August 10 20062:34:41 PM |
I just had lunch with my mom. It was quite lovely until this woman she knew approached us. We were all having a fine conversation, and the woman brought up Disney, so I started talking about how I worked there for the college program. She (the woman) said that her niece had done one at Disney University for culinary arts. I said, "Oh, so did my boyfriend!" and my mom mocked me saying it.
I was like, "I thought you liked him!" and she said, "I do, but I don't want yall getting married any time soon."

1-That shouldn't influence your liking of somebody
2-I'm not getting married ANY TIME SOON. Even if I were ready, I know he isn't, he's much younger than me.
3-Don't mention not liking him in front of me. Because I love him. And it makes me angry.

That is all...

I want you to try something. It will take about 60 seconds of your time, and believe me, it is TOTALLY worth it.

I want you to go stand in between a regular sized doorframe. Spread your arms out straight at your sides, and then bring them out so that both hands are pushing against the frame. Push with strength onto the doorframe and count to 60 (continuing to apply pressure the whole time).

Step out of the doorframe.

Be amazed.

Ok, not really. But I do love me some salad fingers. Mmm!

So first, why is it that there is always an ONSLAUGHT of stupid journals at one time. It's never just one or two. When it rains, it pours.

Second, work sucked less today than usual. It was a good change.

Third, on my way home from work I saw these two people lying on a mattress in a ditch off of the shoulder of the interstate, and they were holding umbrellas. It struck me as very odd.

Your thoughts?

Good news everyone! I've consulted the scriptures, and it seems none of you are evil.

Yes, the Bible is the real good news.

I love Futurama. I think it's such an underrated comedy. I'm really glad they're bringing it back, but I'm a bit worried at the same time.

I've kind of enjoyed being a "futurama snob". It's almost as if we're an elite group of people. I'm concerned because I don't want a bunch of stupid morons to start liking futurama and wearing futurama-gear as the aforementioned morons did when they brought back family guy.

It's mine. Mine I tell you! (My precious...)

I really think my sanity is suffering from this cabin fever.

I've got to get out more.

Or stay in and watch futurama... ?

Geez...why is youthink so friggin boring tonight? Is it to punish me for not going out...on a Monday!?

Thank goodness for Wife Swap and Nanny 911 to entertain me Monday nights. It's such a guilty pleasure.

I hardly got any youthinking done at work today. I got a lot done this weekend, in hopes of cutting down at work, but if youthink is going to insist on being this bleh at nights, I might have to rethink my "work while you're at work" policy.

Especially after the whole roach incident. I feel I owe the company even less than I did before.

On a scale of 1-10, how craptastic has your Monday been?

(I've found it!!!)

This has been a grand discovery.

I just realized that my two most used keys are "m" and "n".

On my keyboard at work (which I've had for about four months now), the white outline of the letter for both "m" and "n" have been wiped out. Similarly, on my keyboard here at home, the two letters are completely wiped out.
This enlightening moment has been brought to you by the letters "m" and "n".

A roach climbed in my keyboard.

It was a baby roach, and disgusting, and I asked one of the guys around here to get it out. So he shook it a lot and it didn't come out, and then took it apart and I was told, "there's no way it was ever in there. It's not possible it could have fit." Well, I watched it crawl in between the keys and not come out, so no it's not impossible. It may have crawled out when I left the office to find you to fix it for me. But don't call me a liar. If I'm going to make up poo, I'll make up something better than "a roach crawled into my keyboard".

Then he gave it back and was like, well, there were crumbs in it, so you should just eat in the kitchen. Well, that's all well and good except the kitchen smells like a dumpster.

Ugh to the max. I was in such a good mood about my work experience before this (I've been kinda ehnh about it for a while). But now I'm back to pure hatred for my job.

Happy Monday.

Alice Cooper and Fraggle Rock - Mood:Good

Two things:

1. "The game". (booya, in your collective face)
2. Has anybody seen the episode of Fraggle Rock where Alice Cooper guest-stars? Does anybody know where I can find this? If you can send me a download of the entire episode, I will buy you a key. It's one of the best things ever and my life is incomplete until a copy is in my hands.

P.S. This is what part of the alphabet would look like if Q and R were erased.

P.P.S. If you know who said the above quote, pat yourself on the back. I can't buy you a key, but take this gold star...

Yay for the weekend! Mine's been great so far. I've caught up on lots of needed sleep, gotten in plenty of youthink (so hopefully I can do less of it at work this week ), and went to see Talladega Nights tonight. Believe me, it truly is a ballad of one man's life.

I'd planned on going to the beach today, and couldn't due to a storm front coming through, but it worked out for the best, since there was the much needed aforementioned sleep.

Tomorrow night I'm going to a new concept in bar evolution, Trivioke. A combination of trivia and karaoke. I expect it will be pretty awesome, and I've called in my expert-trivia-buddy to be on our team. Any suggestions for quality trivioke team names?
