If peeing your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis - Mood:Good
Sunday August 27 20067:18:12 PM |
I got suckered into volunteering today at a picnic my brother’s school was holding. I was really unhappy about it initially, because what was I going to do at a picnic for 3 hours? The thought of making small-talk with the other volunteers is very unappealing to me.

Luckily I was saved the majority of such small talk by my most favorite teacher from high school! He was there doing his teacher thing, sort of. Sort of, but not really, because he’s laid back and too cool for such gatherings. So the two of us gossiped about the teachers I hated when I was in school, life, etc.

23 now, but will I live to see 24? The way things is going I don`t know - Mood:Good
Saturday August 26 20062:30:12 PM |
I love being almost 24 and still getting carded everywhere I go. Last night I was carded at least twice by guys who obviously did not trust my ID and stared at it, then me, then it over and over again before deciding it was cool.

I also love going out and drinking for free. I went out last night with a guy I went to high school with who is now in graduate school doing a study on smoke levels in bars. He needed volunteers to sit in bars, measuring smoke levels, and in return he had funding to buy us drinks all night. I brought along a friend of mine and we bar-hopped for free.

Frustrated in F*ckville... - Mood:Good
Friday August 25 200612:17:15 PM |
Why would you ask me for suggestions on improving something if you are going to shoot down every suggestion I have as unnecessary?

"Do you have any ideas on how we can improve this, because if you do, I'd love to hear them and then tell you that it's impossible and I'm going to leave it just like it currently is."

For f*ck's sake, if you're not going to take my suggestions to heart, then just tell me this is how it will be and let that be that. The illusion of giving input is really starting to piss me off.

There`s a fly in my McDonald`s cup and I`m not too concerned. - Mood:Bad
Thursday August 24 20067:14:22 PM |
You heard me. A fly. In my cup. Dead. How did he get into my cup? I do not know. I've had the cup since breakfast. I drank the sweet tea out of the cup. It turned into ice. The ice melted into water. The lid stayed on all day, until I went to dump it this afternoon. And when I did, I met the dead fly. Did he come in through the straw, or was he there since this morning?

Ehnh, I have more pressing concerns than a fly in my cup. My grandmother put her dog to sleep today. She got him when I was in the 9th grade and he peed on my mom's leg and was going to be put to sleep.

My mom's car is dead and costs $2400 to fix. She doesn't have a spare $2400, which means she is carless and the "financing" options being offered by the transmission people are flat highway robbery. In the meantime, I'm going to have to start skipping my lunch breaks to pick my brother up from school.

I love it, I love it, I love it, I LOVE IT! - Mood:Good
Wednesday August 23 200610:28:39 PM |
Did I mention I harbor positive feelings about it?

Because I do.

I'd just like to comment on how much I love seeing the tides turn on youthink. Por ejemplo: Slizer--There was a distinct tide-turning with people's feelings towards Slizer, just as there seems to be with diffident. First everyone hates him. Then some people don't. Then there's a wave of diffident support.

It's ridiculous to watch, but, as I may or may not have mentioned earlier...I love it.

Who "goes places in life"

Well, I should hope so! I certainly don't want to be the kind of person that "stays in one place forever".

I hate fortune cookies. The fortunes always suck to the max.

Write me a better fortune cookie OR tell me what kind of a person you are. Bonus points for lewdness.

Difficult Patients Make Me Want To Blow My Brains Out - Mood:Bad
Tuesday August 22 20061:49:09 PM |
I'm SO tired of patients telling me about their insurance coverage. "No, my insurance coverage is great, they should cover this procedure" I don't care HOW great you #think# your insurance coverage is, it does not cover this procedure. No matter how many times you repeat that to me, they will not cover the procedure.

I know it's tempting to believe that you should have all medical expenses covered with your insurance policy, but that isn't the way the world always works. Sometimes your insurance company doesn't agree with your doctor on your medical care. Sometimes you have to pay for things out of pocket. It sucks, yes. But that's what you get for having a sh*tty insurance company.

Also, I'm sick of having patients talk my ear off about their lives and their doctors and yaddayaddayadda and I'm sick of being interrupted and having to ask patients the same question over and over again because they can't answer it the first time.

I liked country when country wasn`t cool! (I can`t back that up...) - Mood:Good
Monday August 21 200610:10:08 PM |
But there are many things I liked before they got cool.

Especially Johnny Depp and Dane Cook. I loved both of these men before it became mainstream to do so. I loved Dane Cook back when NOBODY knew who he was.

What have you liked before it became trendy to like?

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 why why!? - Mood:Good
Monday August 21 200610:22:38 AM |
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.

Got Jesus? - Mood:Good
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?

Imagine That!!! - Mood:Whimsical

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?

Sunday August 13 200611:42:31 AM |
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...

Your Mission Should You Choose To Accept It - Mood:Bad
Wednesday August 09 200610:59:08 PM |
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.
