Today I went with my aunt to the human resources center to find out that they have you just fill out a form online. Then we went to the unemployment office were we both found nothing. After that I helped her buy a new printer. I went back to bed after that because Romeo kept me up all night. He wanted to play. Then this morning when I was finally asleep he discovered my open window and I had to grab him (on several occasions) to keep him from jumping out of it. I guess it is time to start letting him explore outside. My mom came home early today and was in a kind of scary good mood. We went grocery shopping and bought a couple of movies. We got Marie Antoinette and Pan's Labyrinth. We even checked the mail. She never wants to check the mail. I got the latest ccs catalog in the mail. *squees* I don't know how or why but I'm glad its here. No, I am not buying anything. The only thing in there that I am in the market for right now is a helmet. Of course there are other things in there I want but I'm a bit cash poor at the moment as we all know. Also, tonight on of the Simpson's reruns they aired was one that mom and I always fight about. It is the one where Homer goes to the chili contest and eats a bunch of insanity peppers and goes and a vision quest with a talking coyote. We always argue over who is the voice of the coyote. Tonight we finally watched the credits and I won! It WAS Johnny Cash. Muahahahahaha. Tomorrow I need to do dishes and finish the laundry. I should also check out a couple of want ads I found in the paper. Strange this all seemed so exciting when this all was happening. Pity.

So much for finishing anything. The only thing I did today was work on my charm bracelet. It was like pulling teeth to get the parts away from my mother last night. I don't know what it is but she has this thing about me being in possession of my own jewelry. She also gets really upset if anyone other than her works on my broken or jewelry that is in pieces. She has no time to work on them and its my jewelry why can't I work on putting it back together? Anyway, it is all really tiny pieces that require tiny sharp tools. I spent 3 hours just to get one charm on. I'm not even close to getting all my charms on. I am also still looking for some. I made brownies today too. They were awful. They were made from this weird mix. Even mom didn't like them. She suggested soaking them in Cognac and setting them on fire.
I only set off 2 fireworks tonight. So sad I know. It isn't a whole lot of fun alone. This is also the first year we have had to buy fireworks in about 8 years. The ones mom got were kind of lame. She got a giant box of spinners, and 2 boxes of screaming fountains, and these weird crackling things. In the back yard we have this big cement slab. I lit off one of the crackling things in the middle of it and the whole slab was not enough to contain it. And I hate those screaming fountains. At least the neighbor kids had fun. They have been lighting off fireworks for a couple days now and they are still at it. It is the first time in a long time we have had kids in the neighborhood. Most of them had moved away or were over 16 by the time I was 8. Its kinda cool really. There are several of them and they all play instruments, including the drums, all night long. And they have dogs that bark. They run around the neighborhood like crazy people. The oldest, she is 13 or 14 I think, has blue hair and seems to always be wearing ripped tights whenever I see her in town. Its almost like life has been breathed into the neighborhood. Too bad they are moving.
I'm surprised my dad didn't call because he said he would call before my birthday and my birthday is tomorrow and he hasn't called.
And no tv was coming in at all today. The better the weather, the worse the tv comes in. So I finished season 5 of Viva la Bam and watched it again with the commentary. Mom even likes it with the commentary. She asks a lot of questions and comments while we are watching but they are all valid. Like "where is that guy from?" (Jussi from 69 Eyes) or "Wow they have a lot of music on there" (watching the credits). I am just babbling now. I also watched Jane Eyre (George C. Scott and Susanah York)and OF Human Bondage (Betty Davis). I suppose I will stop boring you now and maybe I go to bed like a normal person.

Today I got off my ass and applied somewhere. Their exact response was "she'll [the person who does the hiring] call you when she sees it [my application]. So I have no idea if they are going to give me a job or not. Today was also my niece's birthday. She is officially a teenager. Yay. Mom and I went to her party at grandma's house. Technically she is my sister's grandmother but I still call her grandma. It was exactly as one would expect it to be but I got to see grandma, my sister, my sister's dad, my nephew and my brother-in-law and I haven't seen any of them since I got home. I saw my niece when she hit us up for cans for a can drive to raise money so one of their friends can have brain surgery. I'm kinda bummed that I lost all of my greeting cards. Last August there was a sale on greeting cards so I stocked up for the year and now I can't find them. I was also disappointed to find out that my niece, sister and brother-in-law all owe my nephew money. I am a tad protective of him. I am also slightly shocked that not only does my brother-in-law have a job but he has actually managed to keep it for a few weeks. My sister's dad is also selling his car for a very reasonable price. Its a 79 Corvette T-Top. I won't be buying it but it would be sweet. If I did buy it my sister would also kill me. I also FINALLY got to listen to Euro Rock Radio for the first time since I have been home. Well I listened the best I could. Have you ever tried listening to online radio on dial-up? The first night I tried but we had no internet and later I found out it was HIM night. Then the next Tuesday it was the day of silence. SERIOUSLY GO TO http://www.savenetradio.org/ AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD. DON'T LET THE MUSIC DIE.
Also the sound on Fox was still out today, so I finished watching season 4 of Viva la Bam and then watched it again with the commentary on. Then I started watching season 5. Later I may watch Jane Eyre with George C. Scott and Sussanah York and Of Human Bandage with Betty Davis. Hopefully tomorrow I will finish cleaning my room or something so I feel like I actually accomplished something. Maybe I'll even find out I have a job. Considering it's the 4th tomorrow I doubt it. I didn't think about that when I applied.

Well I am still unemployed much to my mother's disappointment. Everything just went wrong this morning so I didn't even go look. But now I have my shit together so I have no excuse not to go tomorrow. And with my luck it will be the only place in town that doesn't need anybody and I will have to go look else where. So, what did I do you may ask? I attempted many projects only to fail miserably at all of them for various reasons. I put on the tv for background noise and Fox was coming in clearer than it ever has, but it had no sound. It was the only channel with no sound but the other two channels were really fuzzy. So I put on some dvds. I watched season 4 of Viva la Bam with and without commentary and some episodes of an old black and white tv version of Sherlock Holmes I got at the Dollar Tree. They were pretty good. I should see if they have more of them. It also proves I miss Martini because in the back of my mind I could clearly hear her say "Watson and Holmes are so doing it." I wonder how her move went. And I have to say Viva la Bam is funnier with commentary.

There is also a suggestion that goes with the website of the day today: "Put on some Led Zeppelin and you've got a laser light show right at your desk."

Hi! I have only had internet since 1pm yesterday and I'm sooo happy, even though it is dial-up. It was such a pain because my mother was behind in payments, then they lost the check, on and on, so after several phone calls they hooked me up even though they couldn't find the check.
Let's see what have I been up to since I have been home...mostly unpacking. First I had to get all of my stuff out of the garage into the living room, then I had to get it from the living room into either my room or the attic. There is only one box still in the living room but I can't get around in my room. Its full of boxes. Each day is a new adventure. I never know what I am going to find whenever I open a box. Also, my mother was using my room for storage while I was away, so some of that stuff is still in here too. I have hooked up my answering machine because my mother's doesn't work right. I have also hooked up my dvd player. Did I mention my mother completely redecorated the house since I was home last? I'm still getting used to it. I have watched seasons 1-3 plus all the bonus material of Viva la Bam. I even found some hidden bonus footage on the bonus dvd for seasons 2&3. I also watched HIM vs Bam. So now my mother is a Bam fan. Its kinda scary. She wants me to write him a letter for her. I should have seen this coming when she had me tape Unholy Union. I have been doing all the cooking. I have started Hairball's Helldone snowman costume. There was a couple of exciting trips to the post office. My mother only checks the mail about once a month when I am not home so the box was packed. My Revolver magazine came (yay Ville poster) and my Spin magazine came (not so exciting). Also my Origins of Abstract Art professor sent me my paper and final. I got Bs on both of them! Yay! The paper is especially exciting because it was supposed to be 6-8 pages and mine was only a little over 3. And I used to be such a good student. My mother has been working 14 hour days lately (big surprise) because she has 3 new employees and the football camp is in town. So I have been nice and not strangled her when she makes mean comments about me. Hell, I even gave her a back rub the other day without complaint. But those boys are leaving Thursday morning and then all bets are off. The turf war over the bathroom has already begun. She thinks she can get away with telling me I can't have any space for my things in the bathroom after she has already promised me a shelf and a drawer. Just wait! I also have been going over my photos in my computer because this weekend (I think) we are having prints made. Today I had a dentist appointment. Apparently I have a new dentist, again. I haven't met him yet though. At least I got the hygienist I like this time. The bad part is though part of one of my teeth broke off when she was cleaning it. Oh well, it was a tiny piece of one of the ones that is cracked from when I got smacked. Its ok. Well, I must got plan for tomorrow is my hostile take over of the bathroom.
