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.

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.

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.

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.

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 exhausted. I don't even know why I am writing an entry but oh well. Today started (or yesterday ended I can't be sure) with a several hour panic attack over...well several problems I can't even begin to explain. And Romeo is still adjusting to the house. Today he has taken up just crying and because I don't really know him yet I don't have a clue what he wants or what the problem is. Mostly I think he is lonely. He went from spending 3 months locked in a room with about a dozen other cats to here alone with me and my mother. He is rather playful though when he wants to be. Of course right now he is ripping my pants. Jenny's mom is back from Spain. She and my great aunt took my mother and me out to dinner as a birthday present. She also brought me back 20 Euros. My great aunt brought me flowers. Because of continuing money problems and having not heard back from spotlight video (yes I know it was a holiday weekend), the job hunt continues tomorrow. I'm going to check in at spotlight and there were 2 jobs I was qualified for in the want-ads I'm going to check out. I also have to help my great aunt clean her house (at least she is paying me for it) because she is selling it. It looks like this Friday I will be going to help pick up Jenny in Ashland. I have also been very sick all day. Now to go figure out how to make $1500 in two months. Actually it would be easy if someone would just give me a job. I already made $185 just be having a birthday and tax returns.

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."
