I'm tired and sleepy but can't sleep. So. I found this comic, Planet Karen, which is funny, especially this panel about the word gay being used as meaning bad/wrong/etc. instead of homosexual or even it's dictionary meaning of cheerful, etc. I heart the goth girl's response to the guy using gay, well, gay-ly (wrongly). I'll have to borrow her response to these guys in the future when I hear the word gay as being used to mean wrong. Heh.

At my former job, I had a young assistant in her early 20s, who used gay to mean wrong, bad, etc. Drove me up the wall but I didn't do anything about it (I wasn't in a position where I could even ask her not use it that way due to the social and political environment of where I worked). She (AM) was awesome in every other way though (friendly, actually performed her job of helping me out (my former assistant (RT) was a bitch and went on the record stating that she would not help me during our so-called meditation)). I'm still ashamed of myself for not speaking to her about that but she was the niece of one of the big bosses in another department and I needed my job at the time.

I'm actually seeing tv PSA's now calling for people to stop and think about what they are saying when they use gay to mean wrong. It's awesome to see commericals/PSAs on tv dealing with this subject.

The maternal unit sure can make one crazy……I rented three movies from Blockbuster last Friday. Rented Gen Y Cops, loved Gen X Cops, haven’t watched Y yet. Got Snow falling on Cedars—don’t bother watching it—it’s slow and boring—unless you want to watch a movie about what happened to the Japanese during WWII, being rounded up and sent to camps, etc. Not a very good romance or trial pic. Rented David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. which I liked. Well, I like it up until the twist and the ending, that I didn’t like so much, but I still liked the movie. Mom had to rant on and on and on about what a waste of time that was, and if you liked it something was wrong with you, etc. So sorry, Mom, but I’m not a duplicate of you. Fortunately. Although I know you think I am. By the way could ya, please!, stop whining/complaining about everything under sun, Mom? She rants on and on about cars that park to close to her, afraid they’ll ding her car. I had to listen to her rant about that for 15 minutes after LOTR: ROTK (excellent movie, not up to the previous two). I’m sick to death and tired of listening to people, including myself, whine and complain about everything, especially when it’s the same thing repeatedly.

I’ve made up my mind. This year is going to be a great year. A productive year. I’m throwing out stuff finally instead of saving it. I finally got my check from Farmers for my car on Wed, Dec 31, deposited it Friday the 2nd, and it has to be held for 3 business days, then I’ll get the funds. Tomorrow, Wed, Dec 7th. Next to deal with is the medical claim side. Funsies. Not. Called and cancelled my extended warranty on the Sunfire, so I’m getting $289 back from that, in a couple of weeks. Yes! I’ve made the last payment on my sectional sofa, so now it’s all mine! I get to start paying for my new car next month, oh, the fun. It’s a metallic red Hyundai Elantra GT 2004, with leather interior. I like the car but am not in love with it. I really, really, wanted the GT Hatchback, but I couldn’t convince anyone to take me to a dealership that had them so I could look at it. So, I’m already mentally planning on trading this car off in a couple of years, just as soon as I’m not upside down on the loan. I got a call from the State Board of Insurance asking me to call them back. Haven’t yet. Doubt I’ll get any satisfaction other than that of getting them, A All American Plumbing, into trouble in the first place. Heh.

I’ve been cleaning out my magazines by reading them and throwing them into the recycling container instead of bringing them to work for the last week. Heh. I feel good. I usually bring to work so others can read them before they are recycled, but I’ve been resenting it too, even though no one compels me to bring them. They love the fact I bring them, but consider me a bitch…….so, I think I’m going to stop bringing them. Heh. They can bring their own material from now on; well, I still might bring my Discover mags to work, but that’s it. I’m going to sell my stuff I’ve been wanting to sell—even if I don’t make a profit, I’ll at least get some of my moolah back, right? I’m wanting to go through my nail polish and throw out the ones I don’t want anymore. I’m wanting to write up my resume. I’m wanting to find another job. I’m wanting to take the GRE. I’m wanting to go to grad school, but major in what? And where? I’m wanting to move!!!!!!!! Away from where I am. I’m thinkin’ Florida, California, Georgia, or Louisiana. Yes, LA, people. I told Mom once I wanted to move to New Orleans, and her response, “The murder capital of the US?! Are you crazy?” I like the Cajun culture, food, and music, so yes LA, people. I’d like to move somewhere on the coast, next to the beaches and ocean, and fun times……..If I stay in Texas, maybe Corpus Christie? The one time I was there, I liked it. Not Galveston, fun to visit, but not to live there. Everything shuts down early. And I mean early. Like 9:30 pm early.

2003-12-30 - 3:48 p.m.

Well, let’s see. I did it! No, really, I did it! I finally bought a new car! Mom and I are so tired of commuting together to work (different worksites) that she made the down payment herself on the car with her money! Whee! ‘Course I’ll pay her back when I get the check from the insurance company. I’d been without a car since Nov. 26. I bought it Saturday, Dec 27, 2003. Earlier in the day I’d test driven a Pontiac Vibe—cute car but it was going to be about $21,000 for it. Payments = $340.00 a month at 0% interest. I’d planned to buy in on Monday after I wrapped my head around the idea of those car payments. My Sunfire had been $335, iirc. My house payment has gone up by $60.00 and don’t get me started on my credit car bills, so I really didn’t want that big of a payment. Really didn’t want payments that big. Not to mention, Monday, Dec 29, guess what? Pontiac ads on tv/radio air talking about the $2000 cash back bonus! I’d have been ripped off by the car salesperson and his manager! They never mentioned the cash back to me at all on Saturday. Fuckers!

On the way home, Mom and I passed the Eckert Hyundai dealership and she pulled in for me to see if they had a 5-door Elantra GT in. Didn’t. I still wish I gotten one of those, but I couldn’t get anyone with a car to take me to a dealership that had one. They’d gotten in a crimson colored Hyundai Elantra GT and I liked it. Has leather seats, fancy radio(!), power open moonroof, etc. So I got it. Sent Mom into shock. I’d disliked the GT body before, but it was a “tidal blue” color, the body style is growing on me. I still can’t believe I bought a red car. A RED CAR. I’d always wanted one, but still…….the way I speed?! Stupid, stupid, stupid. Oh well, I like it anyways. Since Mom had a Hyundai, they were offering $2,000 cash back bonus on the Hyundai cars, plus a $750 rebate, so I got nearly $3000 off my car! Great deal. Plus, Mom and I put $3000 down, so I ended up financing around $11,000+change for the car. It had been around $17,000. Payments with gap insurance = $217.00. Much better deal. Anyway, I have transportation again and can do what I want when I want to again. Sings the Hallelujah chorus. I’m still not that fond of the Hyundai stripe down the car, but what the hell, right? It’s a metallic red color that the H people called crimson.

My credit card bills would come down a lot quicker if I stopped buying stuff, but it’s just so tempting……..rats……those fabu sales…….

Now all I have to do is get my check from the fuckers at Farmers Insurance. Bunch of assholes. I finally got my paperwork and signed and mailed it certified so they couldn't scream they never got it. They got it Dec 22. So, hopefully, I'll be getting a check soon since asshole, JR Vesaquez, was back from vacation today. My check will be close to $8000, minus $3000 for Mom of course. Bill pay off time.

I so want a different job. I'm gonna update my resume and apply for those jobs. Nods heads. 'Course they're all in different states, but I'd love to move from Texas. I've never felt there was anything for me here, and I don't think there ever will be. If I stay where I am, I will never get married, have kid, make money, or even date. Hell, I get asked out all they time when I'm on vacation, but at home, here?! Forget it. It's like I'm a leper, but I'm not. Hell, I'm much more attractive than most people I know. Can't figure it out.

November/early December:

Mom and I have agreed to not spend more than $100 on gifts for each other. My idea. She always goes nuts buying crap for me, so I feel I have to match her……grrrrrrrrr. She wants to get the Xmas decorations down this weekend. Ick. I don’t know. I’m just not in a Chrismassy mood again this year. I don’t feel putting up decorations this year. Such a Scrooge I am.

My Mom’s oldest brother died about a month ago. They weren’t close, but she liked and respected him. She didn’t go to the funeral, it was near Houston, and she was sick and had back problems. He had kids 4 yrs older than my Mom.

I don’t know how much damage/cost was done to the city vehicle. No one’s mentioned it to me and I don’t wanna ask to remind them why it was damaged. ^^;; The Monday after it happened though, the people were out there working on the gate, so hopefully it’s fixed and won’t behave like that again.

The cat killer, creepy guy, who lived in the trailer next door………well, the owners were notified that he had to move, so about 2 weeks after that, he moved I think. I’d still see him during the day, but not over there at night. Last week, the trailer was moved; it’s gone from the driveway, for now at least. I believe he killed my cat Lil Sis. Won’t even look Mom or me in the eyes. Bastard! It’s been several days since I’ve seen him. Don’t see him around much anymore. The owners came back and are living in the house—have been for a while. I miss her –my kitty--so much……...

Oh, guess what? No, no, guess!

I didn’t get a raise this year and won’t next year. Grrrr. I want my raises! I earned a 5% raise last year I didn’t get. Pisses me off. You only get those for exceptional years. Usually, it’s a 3% raise for satisfactory work. I’ve managed to pay off my car this year, and two more payments and my couch will be paid for—YES! Then, it’s my other credit card time. Whohoo! Hopefully, everything will be paid off by this summer. I’m trying to pay down the credit cards now, but it’s hard—I keep using them. I’m trying to pay in cash/check more now though than I was.

12-8-03

Wah. The Wed before Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, guess what? I was coming home from work, when at the intersection of Sherman and Kings Row, this idiot ran a stop sign, and now, my car, my gold Sunfire, is totaled. Wah. I’d just paid it off this past July, and I’d planned on keeping it for a while yet. 2-3 yrs anyway. I really, really didn’t/don’t want a car payment right now. I wasn’t badly injured. Mainly airbag burns on my arms/face/under my chin, bruises, back/neck/arm pain. Saw the Dr last Thursday, Dec. 4, and he prescribed some muscle relaxers, and ordered x-rays of my spine. They came back normal.

When the accident happened, it happened right in front of the fire station, so I guess they heard the crash, and pulled the fire engine out, asked me how I was, and called the police. The police ticketed Mr. Pena for failure to yield right of way through the stop sign (doesn’t mean he ran it, the officer said, me, huh?), and driving with an expired drivers license. It had been expired for a year, and it was the guy’s b-day. The officer told him, “Mr. Pena, due to your extensive driving history, you may have a few problems.” Joy, I got hit by an idiot driver. Just my luck this year.

The guy’s insurance, Farmers Insurance, is trying to give us the run around. B/c the accident happened at 4 pm Wed, and it was the holidays, I couldn’t get a copy of the accident report until Monday. Monday, we called Farmers and they assign us to a guy in Aiblene—300 miles away from me! Then, closer to home, they assign a real bitch to my case. She was rude to me and grilled me like I was the one at fault and in a courtroom on trial! She came out last Tuesday, Dec 2, to Denton to look at the accident site and wanted me to meet her at Danny’s Autobody shop. Why? She can’t take pictures of the car by herself? She’s offered $750 for pain/suffering. I’ll take it, but haven’t yet. She’d said on the phone that she could get me a rent car Tuesday, then Tuesday at the Autobody shop, she said she didn’t have the authority to okay it! Lying bitch. Talk about dressin’ like a slut too. Usually, you only see cleavage like that at night. Said she had to give the info to the Auto adjuster guy. We finally had to call him yesterday, since we hadn’t heard anything, and we get his machine, but it gets him to moving. He came out today, Tues, Dec 9, to the Autobody shop to look at the car!!!!!!!! Why? The bitch already had and taken pictures! They want me to go ahead and release the car, but I asked Danny and he said no, don’t, until you’ve got the check. Danny who owns Autobody is a great car fixer/repairer and a family friend. So, I’m not gonna release it.

My Sunfire, according to Kelly’s blue book is worth $7440 plus tax, title, license. I know this, this, arrrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh, insurance company is gonna lowball me on the estimate. It had premium sound, powered moonroof, low mileage—21,000 miles on it. If I road tripped with Mom, we took her car—more comfy on long trips. Live within 10 miles of work.

Tuesday night, by the time we got through with bitchy, it was too late to go rent a car, so we rented one Wed., after work. Should’ve done so, Wed, Nov 26. Bunch of assholes. I had to work Thursday thru Sunday afterall. Then Monday thru Thursday. I started getting sore Sat and Sun. I asked for a subcompact to midsize car to rent, and Enterprise gave me a Dodge Durango! Nice, but boy, are they gas guzzlers. If it gets 10 miles to the gallon, it’ll shock me.

I test drove 5 cars last Saturday, the one I like best is the Ford Focus, but given it’s history of 7 recalls in 2001 and 2002, I’m really iffy on it. I’m thinking of test driving the Pontiac Vibe. I don’t know what to get……..whine…..I don’t want to! I don’t like 4 doors much, but I need to get one, probably. If I had a kid a few years, I don’t want to have to start over with a new car. My heart wants another coupe. I want sporty, reliable, good-looking transportation. Only problem is, I think most cars are ugly, and those that really do appeal to me are in the $20,000 plus range which is way out of my money range. Why do they make ugly cars under $20k? It can’t be cost really. I’m just talking body shape, not the fancy interior crap. Surely they can design a car with eye appeal for the same money as an ugly car. I can get a car in the 17-20k range, but I’ll need to put down 3-4 k from the insurance settlement to make the payments within my range. I thought about one of under 13k cars, like the Toyota Echo, but they don’t look big in the front, smaller than my Sunfire. I’m kinda afraid now since the wreck of little fronts. If I’d been in one of those little front cars, I think I’d be much more injured or dead now. My car front is so crumpled…..poor little Sunfire. Ya know, I’d never taken a picture of my Sunfire. Rats.

Thank goodness this year is almost over. It’s been an evil year.

12-22-03

Well, let’s see. After not receiving the insurance papers as promised last Monday, Mom called the insurance company Wed, and they tried to claim that we didn’t release the car and that they didn’t have the car. Yeah, right. Called Autobody where the car was, and they said it had been picked up last Friday, the 12th. Bunch of liars. Called him back and said the car was picked up. He, J R Vesaquez said that it takes 2 business days to show up, yeah, right, it had been 3 business days, and then he tried to back down from the offer he’d made already of $7320 plus tax and title for my car. Said it hadn’t been a firm offer. We said too late, it had already been accepted. I tried to call again a 3rd time later on, and got his voicemail which said he’d be out of the office until Dec 29th! NEVER mentioned this on the phone to us. Prick. Left an emergency number, which I called, got the voicemail on, left a message saying that unless I get those papers, I was calling the State Board of Insurance to complain, the Better Business Bureau, and the police to report my car as being stolen. Finally, on Friday, the 19th, when I got home from work, the papers for me to sign were in the mail. Filled them out, sent in my title and keys, and sent them back the next day, Saturday, the 20th, by certified mail, so they can’t claim they didn’t receive the papers back. Hopefully, I’ll get my check soon. Haven’t settled the medical side yet. I’m undecided. Mom thinks that I may have to pay for the xrays/full cost of the prescription muscle relaxers, so I’m waiting to see if it’s true or not. If it’s true, then his insurance will pay for it. Not me. They’ve offered $750 so far. Too bad the medical claim woman is such a bitch. Gives bitches a bad name.

I’ve spent slightly more than the $100 agreed on by Mom and me. But that’s okay. Finally finished putting up my tree last week. It’s all decorated and everything. We, Mom and I didn’t put up a tree last year, it was my idea, and I’ve had such a bad year, that it spooked Mom into putting up a tree herself. We’d just planned on putting up mine. Heh. Yup, it’s staying up until after the 1st. Mom said she’d always heard it was bad luck to take a tree down before the first of the year. Both trees are artifical. Mine’s big, bought it last year at Hobby Lobby. It’s nice. Looks good, I think. Got Mom’s packages wrapped yesterday while watching the Lost Boys. Yeah, vampire flick, real Christmassy, huh?

I'm trying hard to not be a Scrooge this year, but it's hard for me this year. I'm so ready for next year. Next year will be a better year, I know it! Nods firmly.

I had my exam on the 18 by Dr. Cooper out at Walmart. Not impressed, probably won't go back, but at least I can get a new pair of glasses/contacts. Have to get it before the year ends, which is why I think I'm going to get contacts now, and I'm wearing my trial pair to make sure they're okay to wear. Right eye the same, but the left eye prescription changed slightly. I'd forgotten about the exam and contacts and my insurance for this year for them is about to run out on the first. Have to hurry, hurry. Which is why I didn't go to Total Eyecare, I really like them, but it can be hard to get in and they have to order the glasses/contacts which can take a week or two. EyeMasters here I come!

2003-10-13 - 7:47 a.m.

Will this evil year never end? I had to work this past weekend Sat & Sun. Fine. Sat stuff went wrong. Sunday stuff really went wrong. Let's see. Woke up; stomach upset; actually at work by 8:30 am; gate closed when I pull up; punch open; gate won't open; hit operator button several times, but no one comes; hold button down and finally a response. I had killed my car to save gas while I was waiting as I getting into the red and needed to fill up. Guy came; couldn't open the gate either; he had to play with it. Tried to start my car; couldn't; battery was dead. They pulled up with jumper cables to start me; had to park in the pathway of the gate. Guess what? Gate started closing, so they pushed the open button repeatedly, but it closed on the company vehicle. Yikes. Then it opened up again. Let my car run about 40 or so minutes to charge the battery while I worked. Kept checking on it to check the gas level. Killed it; finished most of work. Went to Walmart; car oil changed; battery replaced; bill $85.00; gas $17.00; sigh; bought groceries; contemplating returning some other stuff I bought that was $15.00; total non car bill $98.00. Came back to work, finished up what I could. Went home; cleaned my floors/bathroom. Need to dust though. Need to bathe the cat. Funsies. Not. Also need to go back to Walmart to buy lightbulbs. What fun.

Bought a puzzle at Walmart. Started it last night. It's a very pretty puzzle that's going to be hard to put together. Need a calming challenge.

Enjoying Alias this season. Tarzan looks good. Charmed has lost it's mind I think. I still like the show, mainly 'cause of Piper, but the plots really, really need work. I think Adventure Inc was canceled. Pout. I liked that show. I'm liking the Lyon's Den so far. It's intriguing and Rob Lowe is fantastic in it so far. I can't wait to see where it goes.

Reading Balefire, it's okay so far; don't know if I'll finish reading it. Hasn't really caught my attention yet. And I've ton of other stuff to read.

My "vacation" starts Thursday. I'm taking off Thurs, get Friday off for working the weekend, Sat, Sun, taking off Monday and Tuesday next week. Why did I mention this to my mom? So she's doing the same except for Thursday. God. I want away from people, including her. Jeez. I can't afford to go anywhere, so I'm just staying home. Mom want to work on putting a garage sale together on "our vacation". Gee, what fun. I wanted to stay home, read, play my games, have what fun I could while not spending money. I bought Final Fantasy 10 for $20.00 at Walmart.

My self-tanner attempt looks pitiful. I'm trying to get the streaks to even out. Maybe I should just give up? I just don't want to look like Ross on Friends from last week's episode while it fades off. Hilarious.

I haven't exercised in about a week or so. My joints/muscles needed the rest. They hurt so. I've been stretching them out, so they hurt less. I'm going to exercise again tommorrow. I've too much stuff this afternoon--cat bath, buying lightbulbs, etc.

I have a Dr's appointment tommorrow with an ear, nose, throat person. I hope they can figure out why my ears won't equalize under water/in planes/ring. I also talk too loud I know, but I have problems hearing how loud I am to myself. So. It's like it's underwater. I'm not deaf or anything. Weird.

2003-10-08 - 10:24 a.m.

People are so damned petty. Yesterday, I brought my lunch up here, and when I went to eat it, the break room was full of people eating so I left. No room for me to eat. Got me a coke and cookies from the vending machine. First time I've done that in a month or so and I've been craving it for the last couple of weeks so I gave in. Went home. Thought I'd eat my lunch I'd brought yesterday today only to discover that someone had "cleaned out" the fridge yesterday. Also, posted a notice by the "kitchen staff" (what staff? Other than the person whose turn it is to clean the breakroom--and that does NOT include the fridge or doing someone's dishes. You water plants and dust. That's it.) that from now to date and initial your food. Goddamn bitches. They even threw away my *container*. They didn't just throw out my food unasked, they threw away my container! They didn't go around telling anybody or at least me they were going to do this. Oh, no, that'd be nice to warn people you're fixing to trash their food and supplies. Fuckin' bitches. And I wonder why I hate it here so much. They did this on a Tuesday! Today's Wednesday! The weekly cleaning is supposed to be on Friday! My food wasn't even in the fridge 8 hrs! I rarely even use the fridge! Or the break room. I eat in the break room less than once a month. The food that's left isn't even initialled or dated! JEEZ! I have 1/2 a mind to go in there and throw everything into the garbage and see how they like it. If I don't get an apology and another container, I think I'll just take one. Hmmmmmm. Decisions, decisions. So many to choose from.

Just more fuel for my weight loss. Heh. I'm down to 155 lbs definitely so far. I'm thinking maybe 153-154 lbs. It's hard to tell with the scale I use, but the needle is slightly less than 155! GO ME! 2-4-6-8-I appreciate me!

One good thing: I've had to prep the bottles for samples, but now I get to stop, 'cause of some results we got. I sterilized them, but there was some concern that the people actually grabbing the samples were reusing them. We're gonna buy already prepared bottles with this strip that tears for them to use. YES!!!!!!!!!!!! That prep was a pain in the rear.

DD whose job I have now, quit in April 2000. This is basically a reminder for my resume I'm workin' on.

I like the show His Mysterious Ways when I remember to watch it. I like Declan, but I can identify with Miranda. I like her too.

I was so tired yesterday from lack of sleep, I took a nap from 5 to 7, and turned my light off at 9:30pm, but it took me a while to get to sleep.

I put Mervis in the garage to sleep, moved everything out there--her bed, food, etc. She doesn't scratch the door down the way she does in the laundry room.

I missed my exercise yesterday. I'm up a lb I think. Grrr. I'll exercise this afternoon.

Someone else reported the creepy guy living in the trailer in the driveway next to my house to the city. I called Monday, and the woman on the phone said that an inspector was going out to look at it, and that if he was still living there that a certified letter would be sent to the owners of the house for it to be corrected within 14 days. She said I could call back to find out what was going on after the inspection. Creep thinks he's being sneaky. He's now parking his truck down the street in front of a house a couple of houses down. Moron. I will report that myself. I'm gonna call and check tommorrow. I'm positive he's the one that killed my cat even though I've no proof. He just has this look in his eyes....

Well, MG isn't working the weekend after all. I'm taking the Sat shift, which means 4 hrs of overtime. Yes! Money good! Even more interesting is that MG isn't working the weekend b/c he's not using the company's computers right now. Not allowed too. Hmmmmmm. Ponders this.

Tonight I'm going to watch Desperado and A Midnight Summer's Dream.

Don't know if the new gal's working out or not yet. She keeps askin' the same questions over and over. And takin' forever to do the job. Well, she's only been here for a week and a half. We'll see.

Yup, Amy's still here. She couldn't pass the physical for her Reserves, so she's not participating in the exercises for the next 2 weeks. Rats. I was lookin' forward to it. Her being gone that is. Two weeks Amy free. Le bliss.

Got my hair cut yesterday. Couldn't stand it anymore, Capt'n. Talk about a bad hair day. Dye it soon too. Roots icky now. Maybe blonde again. After hair cut, went with Mom to Good Eats to eat. Restaurant named right--good food there. I gained a pound back, I think, because of the cheeseburger I had. Mom had chicken fried steak. Yummers. I did exercise with DS again last night. No excuses. But I'm so tired and sleepy right now.

Finished the Weiss Kreuz boxset. Fun. Entertaining. Angst-filled. Very amusing. Need to find Gluhen and download it to watch it.

Now I need to watch Beserk vol 1 and 2. I'm going to watch vol 1 tonight and exercise.

I also need to watch the 2 movies I rented and return them to Blockbuster. Rented Desperado and A Midsummer's Night Dream. Desperado is the prequel to the movie out now, with Johnny Deep-Once in America or something like that. Dream has Michelle Pfeiffer in it.

I think I ate too much just now for lunch, so maybe a very light dinner. And Disco Sweat! I hope my new exercise tapes come soon--DS is boring me. I've even yawned doing it.

I did receive Galerians. The first vg, not Ash. Can't wait to play it, but first I must watch the stuff listed above.

Made responses to my mailing lists I'm one. Gack. Too many lists.

I own two, myself:

Kingdom Hearts and videogame yaoi, yuri, het discussion list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/khgamesdiscuss/

Samurai Deeper Kyo yaoi, yuri, het list: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sdkml/

Feel free to join them if interested. Only if you know what yaoi and yuri is though. Or ya might have an unpleasant surprise.

Well, let's see. Thursday, I went to the company's benefit and health fair with my coworkers. We carpooled. Why did I agree to it? We could only spend an hour or less because of Amy's schedule. Grrrr. I didn't get to do much this year b/c of it. I spoke with a few people I know that I only see at the health fair, and got my picture taken, but I didn't get my fortune read or anything else done. It was a circus theme this year. We get paid to go and stay as long as we want. Pout.

Friday, Mom brought fried chicken (lousy chicken anyway), macaroni salad (yummy), and Hawaiian sweet bread (yummy) home. Didn't eat much of the chicken, ate the macaroni salad, and 2 rolls of the bread, and gained 3 pounds the next day! Yikes!

Saturday got up and ran some errands. Went to Walmart, forgot the returns, picked up the pictures of my house in various stages of remodeling and me in my Harry Potter costume from last year, picked up a few items, spilled fabric softener in one of the aisles. Was embarrassed. Nosy customer went off to find an employee to clean up the mess before I could. Went to the eyeglass place to get my glasses fixed. Said "What the fuck is taking so long?" as I waited to be waited on. Guy heard me. Was so very embarrassed. Glasses repaired. Is good. Not having a good day. Should've eaten breakfast before I left that day, as hunger/low blood sugar makes me very bitchy. So then I went to Arby's to get something to eat, ordered, waited, waited, and waited some more. There were 2 cars in front of me. For 15 minutes I waited, car in front of me gave up, and I gave up, left w/o my food. Was on my way home, get a call from Walmart saying I forgot to pick up my pictures. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Went back to Walmart, got the pictures, went him. Having hissy trying to find food at home to eat for breakfast. Ate. Mowed my yard and mom's yard. Forgot I was supposed to go to Uncle's to pick up brisket for mom. Uncle is smoking brisket to raise money for his grandchild to participate in going to Florida for Disney World (land?), MGM, Cocoa Beach. He's in the band, and they're marching at DisneyWorld next year. Did my Disco Sweat video. Showered. Went to Uncle's along with Mom. Mom almost backed into a car leaving her driveway. Said she was hoping my bad luck had worn off by now.

Went home. Ate brisket. Love brisket, be nice if it loved me back (heartburn).

Sunday: Got up, helped mom edge our yards, cleaned my house, did Disco Sweat, took bath, had kidney stone attack. Very painful. Managed to find some old pain pills from the last time it happened. Funsies. Not.

Monday: Holding breath waiting for pain to come back. I know it will. I feel "tender" there still. Will have pain until I pass the stone. Sniffles. Why me? This makes it my--what--sixth attack? I'm so sick of it. The pain is such that if a mugger said your money or your life: response: Here's my money if you take my life....

My vcr screwed up and didn't take the Yugioh ep with Yuugi dealing Bakura. The second part, the ending of the duel. Major grrr there--I've been looking forward to that ep for a very long time. Sigh. Got it straightened out now though.

 

Edit: My boss said last night she'd had a dream/nightmare about me quitting here and going to work for Tech Services. As if! Tech Services is worse than here! Talk about unpleasant people--Tech Service has a bad rep out here for not responding to calls and having an attitude when they do. And dealing with bitchy people 'cause they're comps are screwing up? Forget it.

Weight as of this morning: 157 I think. Old-fashioned, non-digital scale with hard to read hash marks. Whee! Though. Feel so lazy. Very, very sleepy. Don't wanna do my Disco Sweat--but I will though. Promised myself I'd do it everyday. If I don't then it's easy to talk myself out of it. Not gonna happen. I want my other tapes to come. I'm bored with DS every day--but it's working. Heh. Need to add weight training though--that's what increases your metabolism and makes you burn more calories all day.

Well, one thing to be grateful for. My coworkers are pissing me off something fierce so it's helping me lose weight. I get mad at them and then go home and exercise....wheee! I keep thinking, if I'm thinner it'll be easier for me to be hired for another job, but I'm mainly doing it for my health. Yes, people, including employers, judge ya on your weight. Studies have shown thin people earn more money than fat people even doing the same job.

I'm also looking for another job. A Barnes and Noble is supposed to open up sometime in October here in town. I'm hoping to be able to get on there--part-time or full-time. I'm hoping if it's part-time that it'll work into full-time so that I can quit my job here. I'm hoping they don't pull a Foley's. Foley's just opened up in town a little while ago, and they brought all their employees from other stores--they didn't hire anyone from town! Assholes! I just can't stand my job anymore and it's b/c of my coworkers attitudes. Dealing with bitchy customers, state people, and coworkers is just too much stress for me. Not to mention bitchy, unhappy mom. Something's got to give. I like being able to, for the most part, set my hours, and the flexibility the job provides, but with no raise this year or next year due to the economy, no promotion potential either, why stay? Stupid economy, please recover so more jobs are available. I want my 5% raise that I was due this year, damn it. Just so ya know, that's the highest possible raise a person can receive. As far as I know, I'm the only person out here to get a 5% raise ever from my boss. She's very tough. I got it last year, and was due it this year too b/c of my evaluation, but due to the economy didn't get it. Won't get it again next year either b/c of the economy, we've already been informed of no raises for next year.

I can't stand my coworkers. Hell, yesterday I went to the walk in fridge to get something, tore the package down, and trashed it. Then, a few minutes later while I was having a bad nosebleed that I was having trouble stopping, Russ, asshole that he is, came in and lectured me about the packaging trash I'd put in the trashcan. Told me I should take it out! He acts like he's the only one who can use the damn trashcan in the front of the building. It's not his personal trashcan--it's for everyone. Asshole. He didn't even ask what was wrong or if I was okay and he saw me holding the damn bloody tissues under my nose! Just lectured me. You're not my boss, bastard, just a coworker.

About 15-20 minutes later after I'd gone into the fridge, my boss, the manager, not the immediate supervisor, walked that way, and the door was open! I really don't think it was me. I swung the door shut after I left the fridge, and it was nearly closed when I checked on it. It's a very heavy door that's always trying to swing shut, it's hard to keep open. Maybe a gust of wind caught it? I think more likely someone else went in after me, and didn't close it. I could hear her asking everyone who had done it, she didn't ask me, and I didn't volunteer since I don't think I did it. She really lectured a couple of other departamental employees, who go in and out of the fridge and leave the door open. They denied it though. Maybe it was my "fault"? I really don't think so though. As I said it was nearly closed, and it's a very heavy door that's always trying to swing shut.

I set up some tests Friday that could either be read back Saturday or put in the fridge for me to read back on Monday. My immediate supervisor, who I do like mostly, was "confused" by the plates, screwed up the read back, and trashed the plates instead of putting them in the fridge. What the hell? Really pissed me off. All that work ruined. Gee, thanks, moron. There was nothing confusing about it. He just doesn't like working anything but his job. He's pulled crap like this before, like "forgetting" to make solutions since he just didn't want to. Grr.

My current job is just so boring, and stressful. Dealing with super bitchy customers coming in to complain at me. Blaming me for their errors. Yeah, right.

Let's not forget the super rude voicemails I've been getting lately either. Hell, one bitch was reaming me out *in my voicemail* about how I talked too fast on the message and that telephone etiquette dictates I should talk slower, yadda yadda, yadda, after a minute or two of this, I just deleted the message, I don't even know what she wanted. Here's the moral for you people: If ya want someone to call you back, just leave your name, number, and a brief message about what you wanted. And don't snarl it either. If you can't be polite on the voicemail, why would I want to call you back? I do so *love* dealing with angry, nasty people. Not.

Oh, and people, it's not my fault if the telephone operator when you call information tells you the wrong number and you call my number. Don't take your anger out on me. I had nothing to do with it, and they won't correct it. I've tried.

The last month has been very stressful. Let's see, my outpatient surgery a couple of weeks ago came out well. I did have a tiny colon polyp(!) (at my age(!!!) I'm too young!! Thanks family genes!! NOT!!) and random biopiosies done and they came back begnin (non cancerous). They also went down my throat and looked at my stomach, no ulcers, and my throat looked okay too. I was out during the procedure. I do kinda remember thinking "Thank God that's over" after they got through with the throat/stomach part. I woke up during the colonscopy part. Probably the last 20 minutes of it. They blow air up your colon to expand it and see what's going on with the scope. The gas/air pains hurt, and sometimes the movement of the scope, but I thought it was very interesting to watch on the tv. Not every day you get to see your colon. I even saw it bleed when he cut the polyp off. Heh. Mom drove me home, but before we went home, I had her take me to the early voting. Boy, she gave me a weird look, "Are you sure you're up to it?" Yep. Voted. Went home, napped, felt bad. Missed work the next day.

Finished frantically trying to get everything updated for the lab inspection. Had my path red test to set up Monday, got 2 hours of overtime doing it. Lab inspection Tuesday. Whee. Passed with flying colors. No "findings" were found--nothing negative. One recommendation to put the word date in the QC manual in this particular phrase. Hehheheheheheh. That's Amy's job to maintain, not mine, since she's the QC person.

Then yesterday, got up, was getting dressed, doorbell rang, it was mom bearing news--I had a flat tire on my car. Totally flat--it was on the rim. Geez. She took me to work, then around 2:50 or so picked me up, she'd bought a tire compressor to inflate the tire. We inflated the tire, went to the tire station, was told it would be today before it got fixed by one employee. Went outside to see if mom knew of any other place that could do it today. Went back inside to set up appointment for tomorrow. The other employee waited on me this time, said they could do it this afternoon, but said it would be an hour or more. Fine I said. So I waited from about 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Got it fixed. The first employee told me since I had to wait so long, it was free! All right! I thanked him several times.

I started exercising a few days before my colonscopy. I remember when I first started going to my doctor, he weighed me in at 175 lbs. I'm trying to eat healthier, and exercise every day. I'm now down to about 158-159 lbs. Go me! I've been doing Richard Simmon's Disco Sweat tape just about everyday. I think Mom bought it sometime during the '90s. I try to do it everyday. Heck, last night I did it at 7:30 to 8:30 pm. I'm getting excited about losing weight. I want to get healthier. I want to feel better about myself. I don't want to do stuff at my current weight. It depresses me.

I need to make an appointment with my doctor to get a referral to an ear, nose, throat doctor. My sinuses/ears are bothering me. My right ear is ringing badly, and I can't get the pressure to equalize in my ears underwater. It hurts to even dive deep in a pool. I'd like to take up scuba diving. That woman on the show Adventure, Inc.? She's my hero...active, no nonsense, tough, take care of herself gal who is a divemaster. I can take care of my self, but a fist fight? Never. Handle dangerous situations? Never. I hate confrontations. I go out of my way to avoid them. Like not telling Russ what I thought of his little lecture on "my trash".

Loved the Pirates of the Carribean movie. I can't wait for the sequel. Johnny Deep has got to be my all time fave actor. I've loved him for years. This movie just makes me love him all the more.

I'm getting close to finishing watching the Weiss Kruez boxset. Fun show. Lousy animation at time though. Aya's my fave character on my show. He's just so angsty. He has legimate reasons to be that way, which is more than I can say for most of the rest of the cast like Ken....oh, I can't play professional soccer anymore........ooooooooh, yeah, I feel for ya, buddy. But I do like Ken. He's grown on me, but he's still the last one on my like list of the good guys for the show.

Then I need to watch Beserk one and two. Finally got my replacement DVD's from rightstuf. Now, if only they'd send my MKR2 replacement DVDs.

I don't want to spend any more money right now, the www.rightstuf.com makes it hard not to with the sale going on right now. Eyes sale. Contemplates credit card bill. Sighs. Undecided.

I want to sell/rent the house and take off. Where I don't know, but I want to live near the ocean, at most only an hour or two away from the ocean. I did after all major in marine biology at one point during college. Wish I'd followed through with it. Wish I'd followed through with a lot of things. Sigh. Too late now.

I want to take the GRE I just don't know what I want to major in. Do I want to study viruses, infectious diseases, wildlife biology, or something else? Truth to tell, I'm still interetested in biology but I'm sick of lab work. I've been doing lab work since 1996--boring lab work. Not research.

I'm so sick of bitchy people, myself included, that I could scream. People, if ya want a call returned don't be rude on the voicemail! It's that easy. I usually return it anyway but only after making you wait until the end of the day about 30 minutes before I'm ready to leave, so ha ha to you. And don't leave a message like "Damn it" or "I don't believe this." on the voicemail either. MY voicemail tells me your phone number, so the laughs on you. And don't believe what--that the phone company lied to you about the number? No, honey, it's not customer service, it's my number. Stupid phone company won't correct it either. And when I tell you you've got the wrong number don't be rude to me or I won't transfer you/give you the right one. It's NOT MY FAULT you've got the wrong number.

My poor kitty is sick. She's got an upset tummy--she's getting a lot of those lately. I should probably take her to the vet. I don't know what's causing it. I love her to death but I just don't know what to do about her. She's pooping on my rugs and only uses her litterbox to pee. Any suggestions to get her to use her box again? It's making me crazy. Since March, I've gone through 9 rolls of paper towels cleaning up after her. Sheesh.

My home computer is being cranky too. It won't stay connected to the Internet for very long. Disconnects me. *tears hair out*

Well, it's Friday the 13th today. It can't be any worse than the Wednesday I had, can it? Oh wait, maybe it could. Really don't wanna find out though.

Wednesday, I didn't feel good but I came in to work anyway since it was my turn to work for the coworker who quite earlier. I didn't want to look like I was callin' in sick b/c I didn't want to do the job that day. I couldn't even shower or brush my teeth at home that morning. The water main had broken in front of my house at 1:30 am Wed. morning. The utility crew was out there by 3 am to work on it, but they were still working on it when I got up to shower and get ready for week. I felt so disgusting and smelly all day long. It was awful. My shower is my coffee. It wakes me up. I don't drink coffee since I don't like it. Then at work, I spent 40 minutes looking for the samples. Couldn't find them. Finally, I found them. Set up solids on them. Found out they didn't need solids ran, just the other analysis. Grrrrr. Then the robotics system went wonky on me when it came to the set up. What should have taken only 30-40 minutes to do, took over 3 hours of fighting with the robotics system. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. Not to mention, of course, that I also had to do MY JOB that day also. I had maybe one short 10 minute break at 2 pm to eat my lunch, my cup of yogurt, since I was trying to leave at 3, instead of the usual two 15 minute breaks. I needed to leave at 3 (and leaving at 3 was overtime for me that day) since mom (a cosmetologist) was going to work on my hair.

A few months ago, I'd cut my hair off short. I liked it. It's straight hair.........mom convinced to put at perm in for volume. I thought it would be either wavy or straight. They can do perms these days to give volume which leaves the hair straight or slightly wavy. I wanted a perm for volume. Oh.MY.GOD. It's so curly I wanna cry and scream. I feel like just dye my hair red and put me in clown school. I HATE IT SO MUCH. Words cannot express my dislike of this hair and it's style now. She even cut it off shorter than I wanted it too.

Yesterday I went to Adult CPR class and Infant/Child CPR. It's good to get certified in these things.

We've hired a new guy! And it's actually male! Not a female! Major shock. Considering my boss, she usually hires females. I was rooting for a guy this time. He's supposed to start Tuesday. Whhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeee. Won't have to help cover that job during the week anymore! YES! We'll see how he works out. Boss lady said he acted eager to get started. He's in college majoring in biology? chemistry? Can't remember which one. Probably around 20. African American. That's all I know about him.

Got up late today, so I didn't have time to blow dry my hair before I left for work. Now, it's really curly looking. Yuck.

I just wish I could get out of the mood I've been in lately. I'm so angry all the time and I don't know why. I feel like I've got a permanent case of bad PMS right now. Maybe it's b/c I've been forgetting my thyroid med lately? And my iron pill? I have got to start remembering to take them. It's not helping, even if it's not the cause of it. I know I need some sleep too. I haven't slept good or much lately. Part of it is all these thunderstorms we've been having lately. Part of it is I hate sleeping and consider it a waste of time. I need a vacation I think. It's been over a year since I had one. And I have to work Sat and Sun this weekend. Yech.

I got to see my cousin Dale who I haven't seen in about a year and half. He was supervising the crew working on the street repair after the utility crew repaired the water main. It was nice talking to him. I always did like him.

More frigging thunderstorms. I've about decided I'm not meant to be online between the way the phone line has been acting up in the computer room, all the thunderstorms (every day this week and on and off for several weeks), and the way yahell as been acting. Sigh.

Got to work today. Remembered thyroid pill. Waiting for the hour to pass so I can eat. I'm hungry now. Whiny. Irritated with everything. Since I'm working the weekend, I get the following Friday off. It's the boss's way of avoiding paying us overtime for working the weekend. I'm considering taking off Wed and Thurs too although I don't have anywhere to go or money to go with. Maybe even if I just take the time off and stay home, it'll put me in a better mood. It's worth a try, ne?

I don't know if Dad is going to survive the summer or not. He has throat cancer but it's spread to his lymph nodes. He's been let out of intensive care but mom doesn't think he's gonna survive the summer. He went down real fast one day. His blood pressure was zero, granny (his mom) said. Mom and Dad have been divorced since I was three. I don't know Dad real well. Basically, I've only ever seen him once a year at Christmas. I've always wished to have had a relationship with him. But. It never happened. Every time he get sick, everyone expects me to run down there and be with him. What the hell? Cause he's my Dad? He's a stranger to me, and I always feel awkward around him. I don't know what to do or how to behave around him. I do feel like I should go down there and see him, but it's a day's drive--about 12 hours. It's selfish of me, but I don't want to drive that long just to see him or use up my vacation time for that. Even when he lived in a town about 20 minutes from me, he never came to visit me when I was growing up or called me and did as little as he could get away with. I think the only reason I saw him at Christmas was so he could take me out to his side of the family's Christmas tree and look like a good Dad to me. And he'd alway say we'll get together and do dinner next time I'm here. And he'd be here and I wouldn't even know about until he left since he never followed through. Never once did he follow through on his "We'll have dinner" promise. I've so many mixed emotions about this. I think I've his current mail address. I've mailed a get well card to him. I might mail a few letters to him. I've always wanted to be Daddy's girl and I never was. I envy those who were.

I may or may not have colon cancer myself and I'm not that old. Thanks to my family history and genetics. My primary care dr wants me to see a gasteroentologist about my stomach problems, which includes symptoms of colon cancer. Yikes. The doctor is supposed to call me Monday about which tummy doctor he wants me to see. With an appointment set up for me. Huh? I need to do that, not him. This is stressing me out.

His mom is 94 yrs old this year. Congrats to her. Wow. I hope I'm still as active and healthy as she is. She's still driving herself around. I've mailed her a b-day card. Nope, I'm not real close to Dad's side of the family.

Grrrr. The break room with the vending machine has a meeting in it, so I can't get into it to get something to eat for breakfast. I didn't eat breakfast at home since i was running late. Great. I'm trying not to get grumpy from being hungry, but I do when my blood sugar gets low. Mood worsening. Trying to not let it do so though.

My nails are finally getting long again. I thought they'd never grow back.

Well, that's enough out of me for now.

Ja ne, minna-san!

Phone rings.

"Water Lab. How may I help you?"

"I need to see if I've paid my electric bill," he says.

"Just a moment." Transfers him to correct department.

Couple of minutes later.........

"Water Lab. How may I help you?"

"I need to see if I've paid my electric bill," he says.

Same guy, hmmmm. Oooookay. Transfers him again.

He calls back a third time. Okay, moron, what do you not understand?! This is the water lab, we analyze water that's it! We are not the eletric dept, or the customer service or whatever. I have my own job to do and this isn't it, you moron! Quite calling me! Wish I could actually say all this. Transfers him a third time and does not answer phone when it rings for the next few minutes. If a voice mail is left, I'll return the call.

Sigh. This happens a lot, especially during summer. For some reason I cannot fathom, the damn telephone operators give out my number as the main utility number. It's not. It's correct in the phone book, so why is it not correct their computers or whateverz?! I get upwards of 50+ calls in a day thanks to them and it interferes with my ability to do my job--both the testing and helping my customers. Argh! Tears hair out in frustration.

2003-05-22 - 8:23 a.m.

Well, one of my coworkers is quitting. Today is her last day. I'm kinda sorry she's leaving, but.........*does a dance of joy* mainly because now I don't have to listen to all my other coworkers complain about her anymore. Whee. I liked her, but she's too fundamentalist Christian for my tastes. I'm personally very liberal in my beliefs and attitudes. She was well, not nice, to our boss, who is a Muslim and a very, very nice man, just because he is a Muslim. I've a problem with religions that teach others that if that person is not of your religion then they are going to hell and not worth anything. Or that if you kill that religion's enemies then you'll go their heaven.

Went to class on algae for my company week before last. That was a 5 hour trip to the city. Went down Sunday, attended class Monday, drove back after the class on Monday, went to work on Tuesday as usual. The class on Monday went until 5:00 pm. Eyes glaze. Kinda interesting but I was just so tired due to insomnia and stress that it was hard for me to stay awake during the class.

Went to Galvez Saturday and came back on Sunday. It's a 6 hour road trip one way. So that's 12 hours in the car in 2 days. I went with Mom to her hair show convention on Sunday. I bought some hair stuff for my self. And some nail polish. Gotta love those conventions--the OPI Nicole nail polish is $5.00 wholesale to the manicurist, $10.00 retail, and I got 3 bottles for $10.00 plus tax. Whee. So far it's lasting on my nails a lot better than most polishes which start chipping almost as soon as I put it on. It's been almost 3 days now, and no chipping.

Have to work this weekend to cover quitting coworkers weekend. Sigh. I'm not feeling so good right now. Stomach upset. At least, I actually get Monday off since it's a holiday. Then, I get to do coworkers job again on Tuesday and mine. Oh, what fun. Not.

My kitty, Mervis is sick from me doing all this traveling. She stayed home, but her stomach is messed up bad. She ate Lil Sissy's food, not hers even though she had her food, and it upset her tummy BAD. She's feeling better though.

Oh, yeah, in a couple of weeks, I get an all expenses paid trip to another city (one night/day) to learn about algae, exciting, huh? Not.

And then that Friday, Mom and I are going to a town on the coast where they're having a hairdressing show. Mom's a hairdresser, so it's a tax write off for her. I'm going to get the hell out of town for a day or two. I'm actually a licensed manicurist although I don't do manicures anymore. We're leaving on Friday and coming back on Monday, so I'm using vacation time for those days. I've not called in sick all year this year (a miracle I'm tellin' ya) and I've not had a vacation since early last spring/summer when Mom and I went on a cruise. It was fun, loved it, do it again. Swimming with the rays was fun.

2003-04-21 - 8:19 p.m.

Ick. Life's been no fun lately. I've finally completed my employer's training last week. Passed the test. Now we get a luncheon in couple of weeks. Go us!

While I was studying for the test last week, I accidently screwed up some paperwork. eeek. Bad me. I admit it. It's sent out to our customers with their results filled out, only a few of them I forgot to fill out the results sections. So customer Superbitch comes in and bitches me out about this morning. She kept calling me incompetent. I apologized, and offered to fill it in for her, and she snarled, "No, I'm keeping it as evidence of your incompetency for when I complain to your boss and the state." Well, big whoop. My boss already knows about the errors--hell, she's the one who pointed them out to me, and she doesn't think it's a big deal. And I've already sent in the corrected paperwork to the state and explained it to them. Because I forgot to fill in the paperwork results and accidently at the beginning of the year wrote 02 instead of 03 on a date, I'm a big old incompentent bitch who doesn't know how to do their job. I'm contaminating the samples. That's why they're coming back bad. You wish, bitch. It's your fault. It's very hard to contaminate it at my end. And here's the thing: superbitch, after complaining of my incompetentcy, left her fucking samples for me to analyze. What the fuck is that?! Stupid cow. I came so close to deliberately contaminating those samples so they be bad, and she'd be in deep shit with the state.........but I didn't. I'm a nice, comptent person thank you very much. I'm not that petty. I've worked there for 7 years, 2 of those in job, and this is the first time this has ever happened. Hell, for the past 2 years, I've gotten the highest evaluations possible, but no raise this yr b/c of the economy. Fuck the economy, I want my 5% dammit. I am so damn sick of customer service shit I could kill them all--well, just the horrible ones. Everyone else I called about the results being missing was very nice about it. I've mailed them photocopies with the results marked on it to them along with a nice letter saying sorry.

I'm an introvert in customer service. Dear God, why me? Why do I always end up in customer service related jobs? I hate them so much. I hate their whining, their needs, everything. I'd quit right now if I could. But I need the paycheck and jobs are damn scarce around here right now. Hell, Wally World has had a hiring freeze for about 4 months now! The library clerk job had 56 applicants! Sheesh. Sigh. So I'm stuck with it. Maybe when the Barnes and Noble opens up here I can get a job there, even part-time, and worm my way up, and be able to quit my job. Yeah, it's still customer service, but at least I'd like the job I think--I love books and reading. The job I have now is soooooooooooooo incredibly boring even when you are doing stuff. Let's make media. Let's do paperwork. Let's pretend to be busy for the next 6 hours! Yeah, baby! Every day I'm there, I can fill my IQ steadily dropping down.

Oh, yeah, and last week, I accidently went to a porn site. I'm hoping it didn't set off the porn alarms on the tracking program at work. I was there for like 2 seconds, and got out of there as fast as I could when I realized what had happened. I'd stupidly typed www.virginity.com into the url. I was looking for sites related to virginity and abstinence programs, and got redirected to a porn site. ^^;;; Sigh. Such is my life these days.

I really need to get some sleep. It's so pathetic. Flipped my mattress back today. Maybe now I'll be able to get some sleep. Need to go make up bed.

Why did I buy this damn house? I'm so sick of this town I could scream. I'm so tempted to start a job crawl through the job sites looking for a job anywhere else, but now I have this damn house to pay for, and a shitload of bills to pay off. Grrr. May do it anyway.

Well, not much going on. Just been busy. I've actually got enough bookcases now for my crap. Now, I'm sorting through and putting stuff on them. Ugh. What fun. Not.

Whee! Noir DVD 2 is out. Got to have it. Loved the first one totally. And have to get Raphexlon. Want it. Bad.

Just been working and not much else. I'm going on a job related trip soon. If the class on algae isn't canceled. Then the next weekend, I'm going to Galvez with my mom to a hair show convention. It's a tax write-off for her. I'm looking forward to seeing Galvez. Beaches! All in May.

I hardly wear makeup and yet I've got a ton of it and keep buying it. ^^;;; I wear it on the weekends but not for work. Work=nasty=boss doesn't care.

Finished betaing a 40+ page fanfic on Strife/Joxer. It was okay. Not what I expected from that author. Wanna go see a movie and well, just have some fun soooooooooo bad. Just no money.......or people to see it with. Everyone's busy. Sigh.

Oh, what fun cleaning is today. BLG called in, her child is sick. RT has food poisoning. MG's usual day off for working the weekend--you're supposed to do the chores the day before if you're gone--he didn't. Sigh. So I did sweeping and mopping both. Sarah=trash, RB = dusting; boss lady did the breakroom and her duty is bathroom, so it's all covered. Wheee. I'm tired now. Ready for a nap.

Well, I went ahead and did the sweeping today. I'll see how Sarah reacts to it since it's her job. I think I'm going to take it up with Alice since she does the cleaning schedule. When Sara sweeps, it needs to be Rus and BLG who do the mopping. Both RT and I leave too early to be the ones mopping after Sara sweeps. Not having a repeat of the Friday before last no way. uh-uh.

Mom was in a lovely mood too. God, even the sound of her voice is grating on my nerves. This time, it's the same whining about George (a female). Mom rents space from George. George is basically an uppity snob. Pisses Mom off.

Bought Soultaker vol 1, Noir w/artbox, and Hyper Police vol 1 for my birthday. Seen all of Hyper Police--it's amusing and funny. The last ep made me want to see more of it, but it's definitely not a go out and buy right now. I think it's probably a lot more funny seen with other people. It's about this catgirl who is a bounty hunter who has this wolf man in love with her who is also a bounty hunter and her sometime partner. It's also about Sakura, who wants to be a Nint Tailed Fox. She has 8 1/5 tails now. So she wants to eat Natsui (the catgirl) to gain Natsui's powers so that she Sakura can use Nat's powers to become a 9 tailed fox. And everyone else in the show thinks Sakura is in love with Natsui.

Noir I think I'm in love with. Love it. It's about 2 female assassins who are searching for their past. I even like the t-shirt that came with artbox.

Haven't watched Soultaker yet. Will. Also need to get the last of Serial Experiment Lain, Cowboy Bebop, and Outlaw Star. Can't wait for all of my house to be finished so I have lots more free time to do stuff in.

Ya know I'd forgotten how much Cutey Honey was to watch. Cutey Honey Flash! Bye!
