Blah, I didn't really do anything Thursday other than some light house work and talk to Tini. Did I mention she has internet again? YAY! I was going to gut my facebook page and update it (even though it will probably look exactly the same when I'm done) but all I did was rearrange some of the boxes and add movies/reviews to my movies application. And apparently I turned a vampire and another zombie. Go me. Although my vampire underling has already surpassed me. Friday I did nothing.
Saturday on the other hand, I went to CC all day. Mostly I went shopping for pet stuff and work shoes for mom. We ended up getting Romeo a little cube thing he loves to death and a fuzzy faux fur pet bed he avoids like the plague. Before that we went to go take pictures of a mural for my dad. A friend of his that passed a few years ago had been painted into it and he will probably never make it down there to go see it. We also visited my aunt and uncle while we were there to find out more info about my cousin's wedding. I ended up spending most of that time talking to my uncle about computer games and cartoons. He loves to play Diablo online and chat in the forums. Another of my cousins came over and I spoke with her for a little bit because she got her nose pierced a year ago and I was wondering where she got it done around here. She got it done at the Del Norte fair, which is next month. We also found out that a man we knew committed suicide about three months ago and possibly killed his mother. Later when we got home we watched Marie Antoinette.
Sunday was kind of a lazy day. I worked on designing announcements. Mom got Romeo a new collar. He keeps attacking the bell on it. We ran errands. I had more photos printed off. Mom made me so we could show dad the mural. While we were waiting for the photos to print, mom and I wandered around Blockbuster. As always there were so many movies I wanted to see. Mom wasn't very interested in anything. We rented nothing. We went to go visit my dad. T9 is finally done and has its decals on the side. Dad gave me a tiny version of the decal. I have no idea where I am going to put it. I played on my computer trying to see if I can burn cds. I can burn music onto cds but for some reason I cannot burn other kinds of files anymore. As I said earlier I think it is because of the dvd player being set to a region 2 player and it is the same drive. It is still disturbing and if that is the reason, why can I burn music? Except when I burn music or play the love metal archives dvd, the computer says that the d drive isn't accessible (I don't remember what it says exactly but that is what it amounts to) and when I highlight files the option of "copy file to CD" should appear under folder tasks but it doesn't. I will figure something out but not being able to back up my computer scares me. I have lost everything too many times before.
I also discovered that the type of goldfish I have been looking for are called Black Moores. I'm not getting any at the moment though because they require a filtered tank (goldfish are actually quite fussy) and I just don't have one at the moment.
Romeo also has a new trick he has been showing off. When I am laying on the couch, he climbs up on to the back of the couch, puts his butt on one side of the couch, his head and forelegs on the other, and slides down on his belly on to me. It is almost disturbing really.
Today I worked on my room. It will probably being an ongoing project into the next milenia at this rate. I also planted some catnip. It was also Romeo's first day outside. It went ok for a little bit but then he got freaked and walked out of his harness (he needs a new one but mother is convinced she can make the one from the dollar tree work). Once he was captured, I sat down with him in the grass and just held him in my lap and he did just fine. Until a bunch of cars went by and we decided it was time he went back inside. I also made dinner tonight. I was really lazy so it was all stuff we had that was premade and I just heated it up, basically. It tasted marginal, it didn't go well together, and it was all finger food, but my presentation was fantastic. And in my mother's book that is the important thing. I also realized today that I have tipped the $1000 mark out of the $1500 that I need to make. Not bad for someone that can't find a job.
Blah it is too hot to do anything so I think I am going to go climb in the freezer now.

What did I do?

Its raining out right now. I love it. It is still to hot though. Today was reasonably productive. I got my stuff together for tomorrow. I did some laundry. I picked up the living room and took the garbage out of the kitchen. All was happy and peaceful, till mother came home. Within five minutes of her coming home I was trying to comfort her, she screamed at me on the verge of tears and was pissed about me yelling at her. But I didn't yell at her. I never even so much as had raised my voice. When she came in I was on the phone with my uncle who had a question for my mother I asked her, after some thinking she answered. I told him. I told her who had called while she was at work she screamed at me. I tried to comfort her. She told me I was a horrible for yelling at her. O_o And I did my damnedest not to turn it into a fight. At first I was pissed for being yelled at over something I hadn't even done, so I decided it was best not to say anything till I had cooled down and just went on about my business. Every time we attempted to talk to each other afterward, she decided to turn it into a fight, no matter what it was. *screams* At least the cat at fun today. He discovered the dryer and apparently how fun it is to knock things off tables. As for updateing my facebook, I was only on long enough to increase the level of my vampire from catholic school girl vampire to bride. I should go take a shower and go to bed. I must be up bright and early tomorrow.
p.s. I have also found that on the 69 eye official web page you can draw on the header. Its quite fun in a weird child like way.

I really need to do something with my hair. I don't know what exactly but something. To start off I need to trim it. The usual 6 inches should do. And half of it is green. No I didn't dye it again. The blue dye turns green and I can't dye over it and I can't bleach it out. Also I just need something different. I love the length and the sexy curl thing I can get it to do but I can't really do anything with it. Nor can any hairdressers I have come across. It's thick, curly, corse, and rejects just about anything you do to it. I can barely dye it. It's been called bulletproof. It has also been called a hairdresser's nightmare. I've done braids and fake dreds. They didn't look bad but I am trying to get a job. Layers don't work with my hair type and I am not able to keep up with the massive amount of upkeep straightening it would require. The only way it would be wash and go would be if I shave my head. That isn't happening. My head is lumpy.
Why the hair rant you ask? Because today I accomplished nothing! Every part of my body is sore. Part of me is black and blue. Its hot and humid. And I am just flat out tired. Tomorrow I have to get things done because Wednesday I am going to that "career" help place with my aunt. I need to do laundry, clean my room, and go to the bank as well. Of course I may just play on facebook all day. It is what I tried to do today but we kept needing the phone, so I kept having to have to go offline. It just sucked and I ended up not really doing anything. Of course I didn't even feel awake till an hour ago. Sigh. We shall see what happens.

So Today wasn't worse then yesterday, mainly because we had extra help. It was however more disgusting. Today though I got paid and was not the only one that was fed up with it all. I am so sore that I can barely lift my left arm...again. Tomorrow hopefully I will get some stuff done around the house and tie up the phone line all day by being online. Muahahahaha.
The little attention whore is now acting not just like he is used to the house but like he realizes that he lives here now and it is his house too. He really does enjoy making it hard for me to type as well.
I went up a zombie level on facebook. I am doing it by earning zombie points instead of by creating zombies. I went from an Leftenant zombie to a Ninja zombie. Hairball will be so proud. I am now the same level as the zombie that created me. He still out ranks me by a lot though. I have only created one zombie though and she isn't earning any points or creating any zombies. Oh well. I also added SuperPoke! on facebook and threw a sheep at Tini.
I also realized that I like my-not-so-secret crush more than I realized. Gods that sounded so juvenile. Anyway, I found out today that he now has a girlfriend and I didn't have the best reaction. It wasn't like I cried or threw things or anything. I just blacked out for a moment and had tremendous chest pains for a little bit all while not being able to breathe. See what I get for remembering people's birthdays?
But all in all I'm in a surprisingly good mood. I guess I shall see you lovely people tomorrow.

Today was only slightly better then yesterday. We got some boxes packed and the big furniture in the truck at least. We didn't get it to the storage unit though. We are doing that tomorrow. Yay. I can't begin to describe how disgusting it all was. Or the insanity. When I got home my mom was like "ok now lets go on the art walk." I did it but I must say I was less than enthused. I was going to spend all day playing online tomorrow but now I can't. I had planned on saying more but I don't feel like going through it all again, even if it is just mentally.

I think it is safe to say that Romeo has truly adjusted to living in our home. He hasn't cried at all today. He is sleeping out in the open instead of under my bed. He is more interactive and he is entertaining himself as well. He runs in the kitchen when someone opens the refrigerator. My shoes have become one of his favorite chew toys. During dinner he tried to steal our food. He also jumped on me and made himself comfortable when I was taking a nap on the couch. Welcome home Romeo. Now if only he will learn to stay out from under my feet when I am walking.
In job hunting news, I have yet to hear back from the animal shelter but I heard the bank really needs people. I may have to look into that. For now, I have a temporary job. Jenny's mom is paying me $10 an hour to help pack up and clean out her house. And Jenny isn't coming this weekend. Apparently she can't come till the end of the month.
My mom is totally on board with the bus thing. That may have something to do with her traveling extensively on buses (LA to Brookings and back) in her youth. My grandmother used to travel a lot on buses too.
My stuff I ordered from the Duck store (Blogography) came today as well. I am very excited. I am now the proud owner of a "Little Geeky" t-shirt, a "Zombies ate my brain" shirt, and a bunch of little Dave buttons! I feel bad about not reading his blog lately. It's just so hard on dial-up. I barely do anything online except update my lj and check my facebook home page. Oh, well. I am coming out of the lurker closet a little bit.

Deep Breath

I guess I shall do a real update.
Romeo is adjusting well. He still cries all the time but he spends more time with us. He explores the house more and has decided that everything he comes across is a toy. He is a very strange furball. Hopefully I will post photos next week.
I got sad news in my e-mail today. The courts denied stays for internet radio (I hope I worded that right). The only hope now is if congress brings the bill concerning internet radio to the floor for an immediate vote. If this doesn't work, Sunday the music dies.
There was also some happy news. I got paid. I totally forgot that at the end of June I would be getting my May paycheck. I don't know why I forgot this but that is a little under $600 I wasn't planning on dropped in my lap. It is around half of what I need for the school term and about a third of what I need over all. So that is something to be excited about right?
I also finally got to talk to Tina. She is in her new house and has internet. Sadly her bird has flown away. We did talk about my trip to visit her in nola after I am done with school. Because I have enough to visit or enough for a very cheep (aka non-existent) plane ticket. We did come up with an idea. She is diving up for Christmas. I could just ride back down with her. The problem is how do I get home. I still can't afford a plane ticket and one-way tickets are more expensive. Bus tickets are not that expensive though. I could ride the bus home. It is a very scary thought (2 days, 10 hours, and 20 minutes being the shortest ride, alone), but it maybe my only option.
I have very annoying neighbors. They moved in right before I came home from school. They bought the house just to fix it up and sell it. The problem is it is not selling so they have actually moved into it. As far as I can tell it is a couple and their little yappy dog. They are so annoying, sitting in their hot tub yelling at their dog at 3 am. I have a plan to get them back but where am I going to find a kiddie pool and a fat man in swim trunks?
I may see Jenny this weekend!
The job hunt doesn't go so good. I have checked in at Spotlight and it doesn't look like they are hiring at the moment but because I came in and checked my application is now at the top of the very large stack. I also turned in my application to work at the animal shelter. It sounds like they are still hiring but who knows. I shall have to wait and see.
Recently this: http://www.savetheinternet.com/ was brought to my attention. I have done what I can as far as contacting representatives and getting other people's attention. I am currently working on "telling the FCC my story." I tried doing it yesterday but my computer restarted by itself, as it often does, and I lost the long draft I had been writing so I am starting over. It honestly has me very stressed out and I know what is at stake. But I also know that anything major, such as losing access to Lj, myspace, or facebook, or suddenly having to pay a charge for the privilege, is most likely not going to happen overnight or without warning and even if it does I won't be able to do anything about it, including being able to pay for such services. So I am just going to do what I can and try not to let my poor overstressed brain get too strung out. I am also forcing myself to wait to update my facebook and myspace pages till I have other things worked out to help with my internet worries and stress. So far it is not working.
This is just the tip of my mental breakdown iceberg. Even with the good things that are going on I am left with a constant uneasy feeling. I listened to Uneasy Listening Vol. 2 by HIM and it made me feel amazing but it didn't last long.
Here are some quiz thingies to help lighten the mood:

Your Toes Should Be Black

A total rulebreaker (and heartbreaker), you're always a little punk rock.

Your flirting style: Wacky and a bit shocking

Your ideal guy: An accomplished artist, musician, or writer

Stay away from: Preppy guys looking for a quick bad girl fling


You're 85% Irish

Congratulations, you're a shining example of an Irish lass (or lad).
There's hardly anyone more Irish than you!


Dark Purple

To others, you seem a bit dark, mysterious, and moody.
In truth, you are just a very unique person who doesn't care what others think.
And you really enjoy your offbeat interests and friends.
You've decided that life is about living for yourself - simple as that.

I'm a mommy again

Today I have a new little furball in my life. His name is Romeo. We adopted him today. He is a little over a year old and was abandoned at the shelter in late March. At the shelter they named him Chile but it doesn't really fit. He is a larger brown striped tabby. He's got white socks and a very thin white blaze. The socks on his front paws are just on his toes and my mother said it looks like he is wearing fingerless gloves. His eyes are rimmed with black so it looks like he is wearing eyeliner. He is super affectionate and kind of emo (all cats tend to be a bit emo). And my mother wanted to name him Lover Boy. We compromised on Romeo. He is still getting used to the house and his favorite room is which ever one I am in. He also climbs in my lap every time I sit down and he is making it very hard to type at the moment. He blends into my bed almost perfectly. Lets hope I don't accidentally sit on him.
We were going to get a kitten as well but I promised my mother one of the cats would be all black. And there weren't any black kittens. There is a litter that may be silver and black but they are too young to adopt. When we asked if there where any black kittens they looked at us like we were crazy. Apparently we are the first to ask. We are going to wait to get a kitten.

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

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."

Today was very exciting. Ok maybe it was only exciting to me. First this morning My mom and I ran by my aunt and uncle's to get a photo cd to print later. This is the first time I have gotten to see my uncle in months. Then I had internet time at the library. I used it to work on my myspace page. It's still not how I want it. Then my mother remembered that my uncle (a different one) was in the paper (not local). Which is very bizarre because he tends to be a bit under the radar. It was also bizarre because it wasn't the court report. Apparently he has written a play and it is being performed. I want to talk more about how excited I am about it and everything but I really shouldn't. I'm very surprised he agreed to the interview and that he allowed to have his picture in the paper. He is very paranoid and very good at staying hidden from people (and the government) and he knows people are looking for him. But then again maybe he has taken care of all of that. Then I went off to go print more pictures. They were more graduation pictures and pictures of my baby cousin. He is just starting to try to walk. I keep wanting to call him my nephew. He might as well be. Mom and I had lunch at the beach. It is tourist season so we go down and sit in the car watching them, and laugh. The cool part was that there was a bunny! He was just hanging out with the squirrels. I think I got a picture. I couldn't get very close and I haven't downloaded the pictures yet. After our little adventure at the beach, my mother drove us to the animal shelter. We looked at kitties. We adopted none. It is very difficult to find the right cat, and we are going to have to find out more about them first. They were all very friendly. And there were several that were very playful. Only two attached themselves to me. One of them I like very much but I am afraid she might be too needy and the other was bit of a bully. They only let us look at the adult cats today. Mom is talking about getting an adult and a kitten. That makes it a bit harder. There is also a timing issue. The rest of the day was pretty boring. We cleaned and my dad called. He wanted to remind me that my grandmother's birthday was yesterday and that mine is Thursday. I guess I should charge my cell phone and give her a call.

Ok so it wasn't quite a hostile take over of the bathroom but a point was made, and accepted. Well that was all that happened yesterday. Today my mother didn't go into work. Yay? I was sick most of the day and all we did was run errands. But on the plus side I got sushi and didn't have to cook dinner. I also had 100 photos printed. It almost didn't happen because for some reason right now my computer won't burn cds. I think I know what the problem is but it didn't matter in the end because there were 100 photos, of the about 400 or so I wanted printed, that were still on my camera's memory card. The prints sale ended today and it was only for sets of 50 prints and you could only do it twice for this month. I also got a package ready to mail to Hairball. I just need to put postage on it. Mom and I also went into the library today to set up some internet time for tomorrow. I got to see Dori and she was all excited that I was so close to finishing school. It was nice to find someone that was actually excited. And I finally found my cellphone. I wish my day could have been a bit more interesting for you that actually read my journal.

HELLO!!!!!!!!!!

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.

With all of my packing and cleaning I have decided to do a little mental house keeping. As you know I try to update fairly regularly but there are times I'm just not up to it for various reasons. That doesn't mean I didn't write an entry though, it just means it didn't get posted. I write on the bus all the time, (something I am really going to miss). So I have all of these un-posted entries cluttering up my mind, so I have decided over a period of time I am going to post them along with or instead of a regular entry until they are gone. So in the spirit of spring cleaning I am going to give you a brief preview of entries that are not getting posted but won't leave me alone anyway. Lucky you.

Forgotten Birthdays: I managed to miss both my great-grandmother's (101) and my oldest nephew's (17) birthdays this year.

The Erin Go Braughless party. This was part of my horrible St. Patrick's day I just refuse to relive it no matter how bad it haunts me.

My birthday is less then a month away. If I get another bath set I will scream.

I think I have said this before but I have heard that smoking can make your penis shrink a 1/2 an inch. There was a several page ramble to go with this but I think I will spare you unless you want to hear about it.

I had a massive debate on Ritz cracker cheese sandwiches vs. Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches. All you need to know is that peanut butter won. (Sorry Tini)

Most of you know I read a lot of Slash, so I had this long discussion about slash pairing names. To sum it up, even though it is not a pairing I read, my favorite pairing name is Dumb.(Dunn/Glomb)

Him is officially everywhere. I saw a wannabe Ville clone in Brookings over spring break.

Fangirling fangirls: I was going to gush over my favorite fanfic authors and fandoms but then I decided that it would just be better to try and stop being horribly shy and just come out of the lurking closet. Still working on that one.

This video disturbed me greatly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xEXfgjqtG8

My father has been watching the Riches (he has a thing for Minnie Driver) and he is convinced that Eddie Izzard used to go by Eddie Izzardo.

German guilt: This was a rather long rant about how my German speaking skills have gone to hell and that the only thing I use them for is trying to read through interviews in music mags and translating things for Hairball.

The Sharpie incident. See "The Erin Go Braughless party" above.

I had a very long rant trying to explain Ville Valo's mustache. The short version is "when you turn 30, you grow a mustache. It is something guys do."

I was going to sing the praises of valo_daily but it pretty much speaks for itself.

I was going to talk about all the disturbing commercials that have been appearing lately but I have been talking about them on and off for a while so I don't see the point in doing an entire post about them.

Islamic art and Architecture class was torture for many reasons, one was a certain individual that I may have a crush on. This is just too ridiculous to discuss further.

Yesterday, I reached another local rite of passage. I bought a joke book from Frog. It is an elaborate ritual that involves squeasing several rubber chickens. But it means that I am now the proud owner of an autographed copy of Illegitamte Son of Frog.
Lately, I have been doing a lot of reflecting. For obvious reasons, I'm graduating. You'd think I'd be happy. It's not so much that I'm only noticig the endings, like Hairball's and my last late night Puckler's run of the year or the goodbye party at work. I also notice that it is a begining, a begining that scares me. As of the 15th I'll offically be unemployed. As of the 16th I'll be offically homeless. As of the 17th I'm offically moving back home because I have no where else to go. Granted I'm happy that at least I have a place to go, but there isn't anything there for me really.
A while back a girl at work said something to me, "I'm really worried about you moving back home." The full meaning of that didn't really sink in until very recently. It is not just that I am increadbly unhappy whenever I go home, or that I have no firends there, or job. Since I lived at home I have, not so much become a different person, but actaully act like myself now. When I go home on breaks I still hide things from people and just don't talk about certain aspects of my life. Its ok though because I come back here and I can more or less be myself again. That isnt to say that I fit in here or that I am happy here either. But it is a different kind of miserable.
Staying here isn't much of an option either. I don't really have any friends here that live here. I'm also not very happy here either. The hope is that I go home and save money and come up with some sort of plan to be somewhere else. Yeah I have no plan.
That is one of the worse parts about graduating. Its not the fact that I have no plan, its that people keep asking me what my plan is. Only my fellow graduates seem to understand that unless you know a person has a plan after graduation, you should never ask them what their plans are. See for me first I have to tell them that even though I am graduating, I am not actaully done with school, I still have to come back for a term in the fall. So I am not done until December. This summer I have to get a job and live at home and do whatever it is my mother requires of me so that she won't charge me rent (as she has threatened to do). Then in December, I will be exactly where I am now. So I have been telling people that I am going home in order to save some money and work on my art, so that I can travel and eventually move to Seattle or San Fransisco. I don't know if it is the truth but that is what I have been telling people.
I find myself wishing I could go back four years. Not that I liked high school. It was pretty much the worst time of my life so far. But at least then I wasn't in this spot now. I had firends, kinda, who where actually physically in the same city. They didn't really have time for me most of the time but hey they were there. I had an old but reasonably healthy dog and a cat who was my universe. Unlike now when I have a dead dog and have to leave Target in a hurry because they have those stupid scrapbooks that are like baby books for pets that you can put their little paws prints on like I wanted to get Ruby when she was a kitten. I was unhappy with my life and where I lived and assumed there where places that live could be different and I could find people like me. Now I actaully know. At least my mother is trying to understand that part. She is willing to work with me on the adjusting from one lifestyle to a new one thing. The only thing she won't budge on so far is getting an internet connection that isn't dial up. Her argument is "but you can use the library's computer for an hour a day." But enough about that. I try to remind myself of all the, for lack of a better term, life changing things that happened in the last four years, the good ones; meeting Hairball, becoming friends with Martini all over again, the HIM concert, going from virtually no computer skills to whatever I am now, the list goes one and on. But this makes it worse. It just adds to the things I wish had never happended bnecause you can't miss what you never had. Back then it seemed as though life was ahead of me. Now it seems as though I am somehow spirallying backwards, like the last four years didn't count. They didn't mean anything, the good or the bad. It was just one big cruel expensive joke. I feel as though small children should be pointing at me going "look mommy she failed at life." and then their mothers shush them saying it's not nice to point, politely nod at me and then drag their little brats away. That ended up being more depressing then I had intended.

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.

Well today mom had the day off. We were going to go places and do things. But then there was a phone call. The girl that was supposed to come in today is MIA so mom has to come in and cover, as always. She never gets a day off. She has taken two two-day vacations in the last six years. On the plus side my charm bracelet got worked on. For years charms have been collected and new chains have been bought, as I keep out growing them. But finally today charms have been put on a chain that has a clasp that fits my wrist. Hooray! Mom and I tried to go out to dinner but everywhere was packed. So we had Taco Bell, stayed in and watched House. And tomorrow morning mom has to go into work on her day off, again. Well, I'm going to go back to picking up my room,as I am leaving day after tomorrow.
I see that Mandy has gotten her tattoo. Yay! Way to go Mandy. I'm still designing mine. someday.
