Life and Whatnot

spiralicious: Cereal Killer Mask (Hands off!)
Ok Tuesday I went music shopping armed with $40 in gift certificates. Shock and astonishment they actually had a copy of Venus Doom on the release date! I guess being good pays off sometimes (not really). I have listened to it once because I had too but I am waiting to give it the full attention it deserves and that I can't give it at the moment. The only thing I will say about it now is that If you are a Love Metal fan, you'll love it. If Dark Light is the best album in the world according to you, you'll hate it. I also bought Aerosmith by Aerosmith, Bam Margera Presents Viva la Bands vol.2, and The Greatest Songs Ever Written (By Us) by NOFX. My love for Aerosmith is well know so I am not going to explain that one. VLB v.2 I have been looking for since I heard it came out. I looked in new releases, I looked under V for various artists but I never thought to look under B for Bam (which is where I found it while looking for something else). It is an amazing collection but I have yet to watch the DVD that came with it. And I love NOFX. "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" is my favorite NOFX song. GSEW is the only album with "Wore out the Soles of my Party Boots" on it. Music shopping for me is a very serious buisness. I must carefully consider every album in the store and sort through my mental list of what I want, how bad I want it, and how to maximize my money. Because as much as I am obsessed with music I can't go shopping very often so I save up money (and gift certificates) to buy as much as I can in one sitting.
Wednesday was spent packing.
Today was spent moving in. It's kind of weird to be back. It is very weird to have a roommate again. It is also very weird not working at the area desk, but it was nice to find out they got nothing but love for me over there. I will go on tomorrow but for now I must go to bed because I am very tired and I have a job interview tomorrow morning.

Well my birthday was rather quiet. Big surprise. I did get a bunch of phone calls and facebook messages. That's much better then usual. Mom gave me a bunch of gift cards and a cake. Although my grandmother did spill the beans that I have a surprise birthday party tomorrow. Well, it is going to be my mom, sister, her two kids, my aunt, my great aunt and my grandmother standing around watching me open greeting cards (at best) and eating leftover cake from today. I don't know if that qualifies as a party but it is the best I can hope for. No I'm not disappointed. It is better than most years. I usually don't even get that much. Last year was awesome but it was my 21st. My dad took me to dinner tonight. We went to the Onion Grill because Lee's is no more. It was good. He even set up to have the staff bring me a chocolate mousse and sing me happy birthday. It was oddly sweet. It wasn't embarrassing like it is some places and no one has ever done that for me before. Frankly if someone wants to impress me or make me happy on my birthday the bar has been set very low. It was good to hear from Jenny I haven't heard from her in forever. Last night before I went to bed I got some tv reception on NBC and it was a Late Night with Conan O'Brien in San Fransisco with Robin Williams promoting License to Wed. Hairball would have loved it. Also mom forgot to put the garbage out last night and I remembered when I heard the garbage truck coming down the street. So I ran out at 2am and put the garbage out.
In honor of partying, or lack there of I decided to put together a top list:
Most played cds in my cd case (in no particular order):
Anything by Aerosmith
"Buckcherry" by Buckcherry
"Super Colossal Smash Hits of the 90s; The Best of the Mavericks" by The Mavericks
"Take a Break" by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
"Shoot the Bingo Caller" by Slow Children
Anything by HIM
"Before You Were Punk" by various artists
Remember this list changes often

Ok this weekend was actually pretty good. My mom came and we got along the whole time, mostly. She brought me homemade stroganoff. Yay! We went shopping on friday and saturday. We got lost trying to find Borders on Friday so we went to the mall instead. My mother never gets to go to the mall so she was excited. Her favorite stores there are Claire's and Hottopic. We also went to Toys'r'us. I should probably never be aloud in toy stores. I play with everything and it takes every ounce of my being not to run around the store squealing. On Saturday we went to Saturday Market and she go this wall plaque that says Carpe Noctem. We finally found Borders. So yes, I am finally in possesion of the May Metal Hammer. Unfortunatly, I saw the Classic Rock Magazine with Steven Tyler on the cover but did not have the money to get both. le sigh. Anyway, the rest of the day was spent at thrift stores, Shoes Right Here, the chocolate shop, and several other stores. My mother likes to shop but doesn't get to get out much. At somepoint when we were in my room my mother was watching South Park, yes, its ok to be frightened. She left sunday with about half a carload of my belongings. Yet, when you look in my room it doesn't look like anything is missing. sigh. We were going to get a hotel for one night as a treat away from the dorms and a chance at a private shower. But we decided against it because of how much the vet bills were being estimated at.

Now here comes the bad news, the very bad news. My kitty is sick. My bratty evil cat that everyone hates, that is the center of my universe that I spoil rotten and love as though she is my child is sick. She is very sick. She wasn't eating and she was dehydrated so my mom took her to the vet Friday before she left to come up here. They said that Ruby was just a bit dehydrated and that her teeth were to blame for her not eating and that he was going to keep her over the weekend on an IV and give her a "dental" on Monday and she would be fine. We called Saturday to check on her and they said she was getting better. She was sitting up and screaming at everyone (very normal behavior for her). We went shopping for canned food because he said no more dried food. We got her a new tag for her collar. I looked at toys I was going to get her to say I was sorry for being gone so much. I called mom after she was supposed to pick up Ruby from the vet today. She was crying. Ruby is much worse. She is still dehydrated. They have given her so much fluid she should be over hydrated. She is barley moving. They have her in an oxygen tent. Her temperature is below normal so they have her on a water circulating heating pad. They have ruled out an infection because they have given her very antibiotic they could find with no change. They don't know what is wrong with her. I'm sobbing for hours on the phone and my mom is asking me what I want done with the body. She's not dead yet! I can't go home. I want to go home. I'm stuck here another month. Hairball tried to make me feel better with ice cream and gummi bears. I stopped careing about school and work awhile ago. I've already lost my dog, several family members, and a friend since this hellish school year started. I just want my kitty to be better.

Yesterday I decided that I have to see Aerosmith in concert sometime. So, I played around their website and they are touring but its a world tour, so that's not going to happen. But just for fun I decided to do the annual "Let's pretend I'm going to do something awesome for my birthday" game. I checked to see if they had any tour dates on my birthday, they don't but they have one two days after, (close enough),...in Helsinki. So just for giggles I decided to see what this would cost me. Basically, Martini and I would have to magically come up with about $2000 to go. Yes, I said Martini and I because if i went to Helsinki without her she would kill me. Oh yeah and that doesn't cover little details like food and lodging. Thats just plane tickets and a concert package, (hey this is my fantasy, why stop at just tickets?). Last year, I was looking up same day one way tickets to German and they were only about half that. There is a summer study abroad program in Helsinki...XD. The best part about this whole story is that when I told my mother and Hairball they both told Bam related stories in response. My mom's story is a bit boring to relate, it was just about a kid wearing a Viva la Bam shirt when he came in for lunch and Hairball's was a really bizarre dream that I'm not even going to try to tell you. But I thought it was funny that's how they both responded.
Today, my hair dye came in the mail. Yay! So I bought some bleach so that is what I am doing tomorrow. I also helped Brit out at the desk today for about an hour and a half when I went to go get dinner. I also finally have a third paper topic. So now I must go and get ready for work.
