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....

Fuck, fuck, fuck. I discovered why my house felt warm and moist. I'd left my teapot on to boil to make tea and forgot about it. I'd boiled it all off. Tea pot, actually it's a tea cow, is now cooling down. Looks like some of paint cooked off onto my new, smooth glass topped stove. Fuck. Hope I can get it off. And I may need a new tea cow. Piss. The paint has holes in it on the cow. Grrrrr. I'm so pissed off. When's my luck gonna change? When is my memory coming back?! Tired of forgetting stuff damnit!

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.

Got the results of my blood test back. My thyroid level is okay, the meds are still at the right level, but I'm "low normal" on my iron. The dr. wants me to take 325 mg of iron sulfate! Eh, is it just me or is that a bit excessive? Went to Walmart yesterday, they don't carry iron sulfate neither does the Cupboard as it turns out. Sigh. I've put in a call to doctor to ask a few questions about this: where to get it; did I hear the dosage amount right; do I need further blood tests to see if it's getting in the right range; exactly what the values were for the iron test.

It's my birthday today! YES! I'm going to be leaving work around 1:00 pm today. And I'm not that sick. I'm always sick on my birthday--last year bronchitis; year before that colonscopy; etc. This yr: allergies, low normal iron (I guess that's why I'm kinda out of it, can't remember shit and tired all the time--well, that and I keep forgetting my thyroid med), and contact dermatitis. Wheee! Lucky me. No, really. Last year was awful--missed an entire week of work I was so sick, and it beats the colonscopy all to hell too. That drink you have to drink is *awful* beyond words and you have to drink 2 Liters of it. Gaggifying really.

Mom bought me this end table made of glass and steel for my birthday, and some other house related stuff. I'm leaving work early so we can go see Chicago the movie and go out to eat to celebrate my b-day. I was born at 7:05 am this day 32 years ago. Whee. And I'm still living in Denton with my mom. Of course, I've bought a house but it's right next to her house. Convenient to work on though that way. I'll be moving in soon I hope. My couch is supposed to be delivered on Feb 26. Maybe soon after that.

This article about iron is interesting: http://www.cdc.gov/epo/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00051880.htm

Well, I created my first mailing list! Wheee! So far there's about 9 members--good, considering I opened it up Saturday night late. Hope more join. I want it to be a fun list.

Well, I worked the weekend of Feb 8-9. So I had this Friday off---whee! Badly needed. Even if the boss makes you take Friday off so that you're not paid overtime. Overtime would be very nice right now with all bills.

Dr. said Friday I have some sort of contact dermatitis. Mom thinks it's poison ivy. Don't know where I got into it if it was that. Mom said her mom was very allergic too it. Dr. gave me a cortisone shot---ick. Never again. Felt sick afterward on Sat. Nauseous. Headache. Really made my left knee hurt. Can't figure that one out. Made shopping hell. Complained about hair loss to dr. Got sent for blood test for iron and thyroid level. If normal, he's sending me on to a dermatologist who'll do further testing.

OH! Went to JcPenny's Sat. Bought my sofa! I've got a sofa. I've got a sofa. I've got a sofa!!!! My first sofa!!!! Now I just have to pay for it---ouch.

Went by the Cupboard on Saturday, bought some vitamins that are supposed to help with hair loss. Maybe that'll help it. Hope so. Cut 2 inches off my hair due to hair loss--the ends looked so ragged. Looks better.

Went to Home Depot Sunday. Bought blinds for windows. Mom is returning blinds cause they are too small and getting the right size. Mom bought a sofa at JcPenny's. Going back today to change her order.

Gave Mom a book of WWII photographs for Valentine's Day. She gave me a toaster oven for my house. I bought her book Friday at Hastings. Did a bad, bad thing too--bought me some Tokyopop mangas (Chobits vol 4(?), Dragon Knights vol 6, Island vol 7); Soultaker vol 1 dvd; Bouncer used (found cheaper at Gamestop by $6.00 later but I'd already opened it--grr) and Orphen, new but discounted, videogames. Total purchase $153. Yikes. Really shouldn't have spent the money. And then to compound the stupidity I bought 2 bottles of nail polish at Walgreens on Saturday, and wishing I'd gotten a third color. Sigh. Stress=buying for me I guess. Which is too bad b/c it just adds stress of how to pay for this shit! I have a car payment due tommorrow on my birthday! Damn! At least after the sofa purchase, I've kicked into fiscal conservative mode.

Haven't played Kingdom Hearts in a while--over a week. Been reading books checked out from library and watching stuff I'd taped up all week. Mostly caught up with the taped up stuff--or I was before I taped some more stuff. ^^;; Oh well.

wynddancer: (momo)

Kingdom Hearts is going. Grrrr. It's so frustrating trying to get the dalmation chest behind the Magician's House. I can't get a camera angle on it, much less a decent one that lets me know where to jump. It's pray, jump, *splash* into the water, back to the the freakin' movin' platforms that you can barely see to jump onto so you go *splash* again. ARGH! I've probably spent a combined 2 1/2 hours trying to get this chest. I need it for the secret ending. Oh, well, if at first you don't succeed, try and try and try again.

I want a new Buffy episode! It's been weeks! It's so aggravating. Heck last week wasn't even a repeat! It was pre-empted by some basketball game! And what's up with showing shows are the Superbowl! I missed a pivotal Alias b/c they showed it after the Superbowl, which I don't watch! Grrr.

The bathroom in my house is all together now. The plumbing isn't leaking. My appliances (stove, fridge, microwave, washer, dryer) will be delivered and installed on Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2003. YES! My house is getting livable! All right! Whohoo! Now, I've just got to pay for them. Ouch. About $2200 + tax. Ouchie. I'll need to buy a sofa, but otherwise for now, I think it's covered. I've a dining table mom bought me, chairs for table given to me by an aunt, some chairs mom will give me until I can afford to buy some, my bed (although I would like to buy a bedroom suite), furniture that I can use until I can afford to buy some.

Need to call my bank to make sure everything account wise is correct. I won the battle to get my $43.09 from Payflex. Payflex=medical savings account. Wonderful. No one is answering the phone at the bank. Grrrr. Damnit! I need to make sure my automatic salary deposit went through since they changed the routing numbers on me! Not to mention the Payflex deposit. Whew! Payflex and Salary went through! wipes brow. Forget to ask for account balance. sheepish look. Not calling back right now. Will later.

Mom's making me nuttier than I already am. Sigh. I love her to death, but honestly, you'd think she was born old the way she acts most of the time, and she's not even sixty yet. Wednesday night my friend Lyn called me at 9:30 p.m., and we talked until 10:30 p.m. Evidently I got a little too loud at one point, woke mom up, and she threw a hissy fit about it demanding I get off the phone. It's not like it was 1:30 a.m. in the morning! Sheesh! I don't think she ever talked to friends on the phone at night when she was young.

I have this crappy job where I sometimes get bleach/acids/etc. on my clothes at work and get holes in the shirts/jeans. Altough in my current job, it's mainly bleach, and I'm very careful with it, and don't get it on me much any more (it's been months). I got bitched out by mom for wearing a shirt she gave me for Christmas to work. Honestly. She said it was one of my few decent shirts!?! What? Most of my shirts are decent, it's my jeans that need work. I love to buy shirts, but hate buying pants. It's such a hassle to try them on.

Ever wish for list owners to actually enforce list rules? I'm so tired of one-liners in my emails I could scream. Or the rudeness in general on some of the lists I'm on right now. If they don't calm down soon, I'm unsubbing.

Could the show Fastlane get any slashier? I swear it's got to be a conscious decision to make it so subtext-y between the two male leads. It just leaps off the screen. I love it. Not to mention last week's Fastlane, where Billie pretended to be a lesbian to catch a couple of lesbian crooks or was it pretense? Hmmmm. The show doesn't tell you. The subtext on this show reminds me of Xena. Xena's coming out on dvd--yes!!! Heh. That sounds wrong, doesn't it? grin. Can't wait. I'm firmly in the Xena/Gabrielle camp myself.

Wish I felt better. I hope it's just allergies. My ears hurt, throat's sore, drainage going on. Big Sigh.

I miss Firefly. The best tv show on tv this season and it gets cancelled. It would take conventional movie crap and turn it on it's head. I loved all the characters. They were so strong in their personalities it was either love them or hate them. I just don't understand why people didn't like the show.

My job is so boring I can't stand it. Same thing day in, day out. I wanna quit so bad..........but I lack the nerve. I hate job hunting and in this economy........hard to find one. It's just that it's so repetitive, and requires no thought whatsoever. Trained monkeys could do it. I do like my boss, but my coworkers are another story and a great deal of why I want to quit.

Alice is "shy" (read rude). I was way shy all through school. I know how shy people behave. She's just flat out rude. If I say good morning to her, most of time I won't get a response. She ignores me. She's married to Sam, a charmer in and of himself who used to work out there before he quit. Called me an incompetent bitch on my birthday one year a few years ago. I guess that's why he couldn't handle his job, quit, and couldn't get rehired out there later. My immediate supervisor couldn't stand him either. And I'm so incompetent my boss (immediate supervisor's supervisor) gave me the highest raise possible last year. Never have had an unsatisfactory performance review. So there. sticks out tongue.

Randolph is okay. He talks to me, but doesn't go out of his way. Not friends with each other.

Suzy's okay. Very, very, deeply religious though. I'm not. She's kinda preachy, but I like her. We talk.

Mike's okay. Friendly enough. So is Lana, but she's very good friends with Alice. And they stop talking when I come up to them to talk with them usually on work stuff. Lana's also friends with Chris--more on him later.

I was adopted by this little, pathetic-looking, starving stray about 2 months ago. She looked so sad and you could count the number of ribs she had she was so thin. I've been taking care of her for the last 2 months. She saw the vet before Christmas, and the vet thought she was about 8 months old at that time. Ear mites. Had the very basic vaccinations done, can't afford anything more right now. She's an indoor/outdoor cat. I'd like to get all the vaccinations for her. She's now a healthy 6 lbs. Possibly a little more now. She looks like she's getting a belly on her. I hope she's not pregnant. I'm having her spayed this Tuesday. Unless she's pregnant of course. sigh. She's a calico cat. She's so calm and sweet natured. She'll curl up in your lap purring at you for a long, long time. Not at all like my other cat. We've been calling her Lil Sis.

I already had a cat. My other cat is part Ragdoll, part unknown. She's about 17 lbs. Vet wants her to lose weight. I call her Mervis. She's all white with gold eyes. Her body is such that she looks like a male lion--she has a ruff around her neck, and a long body, and short stubby legs. She can move though. Zoom, Zoom, Zoooooooooooooom. Faster than a speeding bullet. She's about 18 months old. She's been spayed and had every vaccination known to vet kind. She gets angry to easily it's funny--to me anyway. When I pick her up, I'll ask her for a kiss, and sometimes she'll turn her nose up for a kiss. Sometimes she ignores me, and sometimes it's NO. She'll put her paw up under my chin to hold me away. It's so funny. She's easily startled. No, she's not deaf. She's a beautiful cat.

My uncle who has an indoor/outdoor cat, Clyde, plays very rough with the animals. In one day, he played with my cat (to the extent he made her mad enough to draw blood) Mervis who is strictly an indoor cat, his cat, and 2 outdoor cats, all of who drew blood on him, got cat sractch fever (yes, it actually exists and is a serious blood infection) and tried to blame my cat. Not even!!! After being indoors only, having every vaccination, not to mention all the times she's drawn blood on me, I know she's not carrying the cat scratch infection. She's a biter, not a clawer. She doesn't claw furniture. Thank Goodness.

Mervis and Lil Sis have met a few times. Didn't go over well. Surprisingly enough, Lil Sis is the aggressor, and she intimidates my 17 lb cat. It's funny to watch. The thing is, is that I've bought a house, and Lis Sis has been living in it while it's being fixed up, and Mervis has been living with me where I live right now (with my mom). I don't know who they're going to react when I finally get to move into the house to each other being the same house. I guess they'll need to settle with each other before I get a dog.

I'll be so happy when I finally to get to move into my house. I bought it last week of August 2002. It had been used as a rent house or owned by people who didn't care for 17 yrs. It still has the original, 17 yr old wallpaper in the kitchen! And the original carpet in the bedrooms! It had held up better the newer carpet in the living room. The living room had holes in the carpet and looked like it needed to be re-stretched. So, basically we've gutted the house. It's mainly just been me and mom doing the work on it, with occassional help from other relatives. So it's been slow going, but it's getting there. There were 3 layers of linoleoum in the kitchen and laundry room. The last layer was the 17 yr old stuff. But the 3 layers were easier to get up than the linoleum in the bathroom that was mildewy. It was just one layer, but somebody went way overboard with the linoleum glue. Believe me, scraping up linoleum glue is tedious and hard back-breaking work. Made my body hurt in places I didn't know existed, and gave me really bad tendonitis in my arms.

I'm putting wood looking vinyl down in the entry, living room, kitchen, and some fabulous looking marble ceramic tile down in the laundry room and bathroom. I'm choosing my carpet right now for the bedrooms. I've painted my exterior doors a caramel color. My kitchen is sage green. I'm getting new appliances--fridge, microwave, stove, and eventually washer/dryer, but first comes furniture. Soon.
