Losing at the internet. - Mood:Naughty
Tuesday June 21 201110:43:09 PM |
I talked to my brother today for the first time in a while.

He told me many things, but I'll only share the best bit.

As I mentioned a while ago, my dad has let this woman and her 9 year old daughter move in with him. I haven't met her or her daughter, but my brother has.

Anyway, the 9 year old has a facebook. I know, what the f*ck. But she does. And she apparently recently posted a video of her singing a Pink song on youtube. Too much internet for a kid, if you ask me. But then again, the internet didn't exist when I was 9

Anyway.......long story short, some friend of hers (the kid) posted on her facebook that she should remove the youtube video because people were being mean and sh*t.

So her mom posts on HER facebook that she's just jealous of her daughter's amazing voice

I want to be a mean girl. - Mood:Good
Friday June 17 201110:06:52 PM |
I'm so annoyed with myself.

I have a lot of difficulty being honest if it might hurt someone's feelings, even if it's just on the internet! Like that "ignore list" thread. I really wanted to post some names, but then I wanted to write a disclaimer that I was sure they were fine people, even though I'm not entirely sure of that at all! I'm just afraid of being mean. Maybe it's working with little kids too much.

I also found myself unable to post in the who would you f*ck thread, even though there is quite definitely a mental list. I wish I could be more honest about these things with you, YT!

Tomorrow I have a CPR class from 10-4:45. There's also a brewer's festival and a street fair going on, but I can't decide which to go to (by myself ....loser).

I need some friends. I miss having them.

Oh, and I got cable yesterday. For True Blood!

What's new?

My oil was changed about 3 months ago, but I've only driven about 1000 miles since. Is it crucial to change my oil because I've reached the "time limit"? If not, when I reach 3000, or sooner?

I just started working out regularly/seriously. Tell me some tips. Assume I know nothing about it (it's practically true).

Tell me about a time when you got in trouble. - Mood:Good
Sunday June 12 20116:04:31 PM |
Honestly, this is the best thing I've ever seen.

So there was this kid in sixth grade who took my algebra folder and wouldn't give it back. So I scratched him on his arm, he called me a bitch, and gave it back, and kind of slapped me.

Nobody was seriously injured or anything. It wasn't even loud enough or big enough a deal to disrupt the class or get the teacher's attention.

But the kid, Timothy, went home that night, and his mom asked about the scratch, and he told her what had happened (or at least, the part about me scratching him).

The next day I get called in to the administrator's office and get a day of in school suspension for "fighting". I tell her that he slapped me and called me a bitch and he gets half a day of in school suspension and lunch detention.

It was a pretty big deal to me at the time.

I haven't been spammed in a LONG TIME. But finally, someone took the effort. Thanks amina-whoeverthehellyouare.

In other news, today is a waste. I went to the gym this morning and apparently that means I get to be lazy for the rest of the day. Had sushi for lunch...yummy.

About to begin a little Lost marathon.

But I have an important decision for you, YT:

I had this friend in h/s who lived in a really small house in a really lower end neighborhood. Then, out of nowhere, he moved to a really nice gated neighborhood into a house with a sauna and a pool. It was weird. I think his mom won a lawsuit or something.

I cleaned my entire house today. Took everything out of the closets and reorganized it all...did a bunch of laundry, cleaned the floors, cleaned the crevices in the kitchen, just everything! It felt really good but now I'm really tired. I haven't had dinner yet!

I fail at quitting smoking so much I don't even know why I bother trying.

In spite of getting so much done, I didn't get to a few things that REALLY needed it (non-cleaning related). Meh.

I got asked out today by a crazy stalker guy who kept driving by me while I was walking my dog. When I said, "I'm dating someone" he said, "Tomorrow night?"

I realized today that I use "delightful" far too often. At last half of the time that I want to use it, I opt for a synonym instead, realizing that I use the word excessively.

So it's definitely my favorite adjective.

It got me thinking, do I have other favorite parts of speech?

Adjective: delightful
Verb: seduce
Noun: conniption

What about you? Any words that you find particularly delightful?

I have a crush. - Mood:Good
Thursday May 26 20116:20:32 PM |
A few, really.

One is a real, bonafide, I'd have sex with you if I ever had the chance, crush.

The rest are non-sexual. None more significant than my crush on Amy Poehler. I just want to know her in real life and be her best friend!

I also have a bus-crush on this girl who takes the bus to school every day. We've never spoken, but I love how respectful she is of personal space. If I can, I always try to sit by her.

Do you have any crushes that are non-sexual? Who's your biggest celebrity crush?

I'm getting a couch! No more sitting on squish pillows (though you have served me well, squishies)!

We may take a trip to Ikea and get a new mattress for the pullout bed and maybe a foam topper and go to that instead of our air mattresses.

Moving on up....
To the east side...
To a deluxe apartment...
In the sky...

F*ck yeah.

THIS CITY! - Mood:Good
Thursday May 19 201110:36:37 PM |

It really annoys me that NOBODY in this WHOLE ENTIRE CITY sells pumpernickel bread. WHY?! My favorite bread and it just doesn't exist here. What kind of a place IS THIS?

I must have gone to six bakeries today. No grocery store sells it, none of the bakeries did. They all referenced each other as places to try, and yet NONE OF THEM had any. What a crock of sh*t.

Today has been fantastic.

Work was only 4.5 hours, and not at all terrible.

Got paid. Got to have lunch with my boyfriend before he went off to work (although the lunch was pretty terrible). Got my hair chopped off. Oh, and the sun came out!

As soon as the first ponytail came off I was worried I would hate it, having hair so short. But I was way wrong.

That was liberating and exciting.

Oh, and I got beer and a good recipe magazine. Hooray beer! (slightly smaller hooray for good recipe magazine)

Coming soon, to Korean TV - Mood:Good
Friday May 06 201110:39:41 PM |
So on my way back to work on my lunch break, a crazy thing happened.

These guys were standing around a dummy on the ground. Like, a CPR training one. They asked me to help.

"Do you know CPR?"
"Could you please help us?"
One guy was like, I need you to take over while I get the AED ready. So I did. But I couldn't do breaths because there was no mouth guard (point of order, if I ever really need to give CPR to someone, I won't care about the mouthguard). Anyway, he got the AED out and then asked me to apply it. So I did.

Then they told me they were with some Korean tv show or something. I don't know.

Also, I got free bacon today.

Did you know you can get honey jellies instead of tapioca chews? And the jellies pop in your mouth?

They are the very definition of delightful.

I have another new favorite beer. Redhook's seasonal beer: Wit. I don't have much beer loyalty.

I found a decent Mexican restaurant today. Not great, but, I would eat there again.

Still on the search for a place with great salsa, queso, and mole. These powers combined are a place I will spend all of my money!

I have had a few beers and no dinner. Please forgive me my insanity.

Dinner to come. Chicken thighs, mac and cheese, spinach, and baked potato. Probably one more beer as well.

What is it about my family? They don't understand that I don't want to make small talk after they give me some horrible piece of news.

Example: A few months ago, I was talking to my dad and he explained that I should call my grandfather because he was really ill and sounded terrible and was going to the hospital and all this sh*t. He went on to make conversation about crap for a good ten minutes! All I wanted to do was hang up and call my grandfather and find out what the f*ck was going on.

It turns out my dad's an idiot sometimes. My grand-dad had a really bad cold and had nearly lost his voice, but the hospital thing was unrelated (he's going for knee replacement). Still, DAD, come on. I don't want to chat after you tell me that sh*t.

1554, from New Belgium Brewing. It's sooo delicious, I almost can't stand it.

I just made a delicious fried rice from our Chinese leftovers from last night. Now I'm stuffed.

I'm really happy it's Thursday.

Ever played Yoshi's Cookie? Quite possibly the best puzzle game ever made. My only complaint is the music. I wish I had someone to play against though. I kick so much ass in two player mode!

I should do laundry tonight, but I'm only going to do one load to sustain me through tomorrow. Then this weekend MAYBE I'll tackle the rest.

This is an amazing city. I found a grocery store/co-op that is marvelous. All kinds of food we eat.

I went to a movie the other day b/c James was sleeping after his late night shift. I remembered how much fun going to the movies is. I want to start doing it a little more often.

My boss is a lot like my mom - Mood:Good
Monday April 18 201112:06:35 AM |
Except my boss likes to have a drink or two with dinner.

How is she like my mom? She loves to tell people that I graduated magna cum laude. It doesn't seem that big a deal to me, but she makes a point of telling prospective and current parents about it when she introduces me. My mom was kind of the same. She'd always throw in a way to brag about me whenever she introduced me to someone.

So in conclusion, my boss is like my mom.

We cleaned the school today. And she took me out to a neat restaurant. It features a regional cuisine of the US. Right now it's Tornado Alley.

I'm really fortunate that my boss is so awesome. She's the closest thing I have to a friend in this city other than my bf and my dog. That's kind of sad.

What are you up to and what was the last book you read?

Could I make a meatloaf in a 9x9 glass pan?

It'd be the wrong shape, obviously. Less loaf, more brownie. BUT, could it be done? And would it be delicious?

Stupidest movie ever?


The writer/director/star is SO annoying. His voice is just...grating. And he says really stupid things. I might be able to look past some of this if he wasn't so awful.

This is now the voice I will give to the YTers who circlejerk in news.

I was very annoyed from the get go when he turned his nose at tofu, simply because it was tofu.

So, it's a response to Supersize Me, which was by no means my favorite film. And in it, the guy ALSO eats nothing but fast food for a month (under slightly different rules) and proves that you can lose weight when you do so.

Big whoop. STILL not nutrtitionally sound.

Anyway, I agree with some of his assertions, but I still can't stand him.

Netflix, you've led me astray, you bastard!

(In all fairness, Netflix told me I was about 2 1/4 stars for this one).

I'm bored.

Tell me what to do - Mood:Good
Thursday April 14 20119:11:11 PM |
Next week is spring break, so school's closed.

Most schools prohibit teachers from babysitting, but this one does not. In fact, my boss asked me if I was interested in doing it since I'd not be working for the week. I said yes!

So she had a parent who inquired and sent me and the parent an email to set it up.

She then instructed me to contact the parent directly, which I did.

THe parent is splitting costs with another parent, and so both kids will be at the house for the week.

Now, pay has not been brought up. THe last email I got frmo the parent was "There is plenty of parking! See you Monday".

Do I ask the parent about the pay? Ask my boss if she already decided the pay rate?

How do I do this?

HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

They're glorious.

Only cost $5 each! They're so squishy. One is good, but two are better.

I'm in a really good mood today, for no apparent reason. Job is going well, with one exception. The lead teacher has major control issues and as such, we definitely clash. Like, she freaks out over really minor things. She recently ruled that the children were no longer allowed to use paperback or hardcover books. If they want to look at a book, it has to be a board book. The rest are all teacher only. Why? Because she was upset that the pages were getting torn on the books. Guess what? 3 year old's tear sh*t up. Not on purpose even. They're just careless. Have you ever seen one eat?

I hate when YT is slow on the weekends. Seems like some weekends are really busy around here! Wtf.

I have a lot of vests to cut out. It's one of the most intensive cutting projects there could be. What's the worst part of your job in five words or less?

My dinner tonight was really delicious. It was baked chicken with parmesan and seasonings, mac and cheese, steamed carrots (just the orange kind), and some weird dark leafy greens that I still have no idea what it was.

And I've started to watch Better Off Ted. Netflix thought I'd like it, and as usual Netflix knows me so well it's creepy! It's no Parks and Recreation, but it's so much better than The Big Bang Theory.

Especially the self centered one who does all the talking.

Just watched their "wal-mart rocks" episode which ignored pretty much everything about wal mart that doesn't rock.

Even though I often agree with them, I hate them.

What was your last wal-mart experience like? Did it rock? Why or why not?
