So, Alicia left. She followed me home Sunday night and we just hung out together till tonight. Most of our time was spent watching TV. But there was a point in which we went to Wal-Mart for a grocery run. Of course, we’re both book freaks so, we had to check out the book isle (meagre though it is). When we strolled past the Stephenie Meyer section, she happened to ask me if Twilight was a good book >..> So, I told her the truth of course. And! I did not force her to buy the book....just like the people who sell crack to school kids, it’s their choice to buy :D
That was Monday...I think. We got back and watched more movies of course. Tuesday she started reading Twilight around 1ish, and she didn’t stop till some time after 6. Then...she got her stuff, got in her car and went to Wal-Mart to buy New Moon. O..O Whoops...my bad. Uh, then she read that till about 3:30 in the morning. When I woke up this morning around 11 (yes, we stayed up late so I slept late), she was reading my copy of Eclipse :D spreading the addiction, one person at a time.
As far as movies go, we covered The Flight of Dragons, Hellboy, Labyrinth, The Inheritance, Robin Hood - Men in Tights, X-Men: Evolution Season 1, the first episode of season 2 of X-men: Evolution, and the Pilot of Supernatural. She’s extraordinarily sheltered...so Supernatural isn’t to her taste. She thinks while it is entertaining, it’s too scary. As per my rule, you don’t have to watch everything I like. But if there is a series I like, then I require the first episode to be seen. Then you can decide :) We both love The Inheritance....as does most every girl I know who’s seen it...it’s especially great if only because it’s based on a true story.
Of the movies she wanted to see, we didn’t get to see Legend, Quest for Camelot, and The Goonies....but, I’m not going anywhere and whenever I get my trailer, I’m sure she’ll be about to hang out more often. There’s also Dune and Firefly which, she isn’t sure if she’s seen or not...which, those are the types of movies that if you’ve seen them, you know that you’ve seen them.
....and, tomorrow, after I’ve cleaned up the house a bit and put the laundry on to wash, I fully intend to have a Supernatural marathon. I’ve already got the first disk of Season 1 down...
Oh! When we went to Wal-Mart, I finally found a leather thingy that holds a monthly planner and a note pad along with pockets for other papers. I’d been looking for one for ages and the ones they had just weren’t meeting my needs exactly. Well I got this one, and tonight at church, I wrote! I wrote like 3 pages...which, admittedly, is not a lot. But! When you consider that I haven’t written anything since about a month before the move...it’s progress and that’s what matters. What also matters, is that it’s a section that actually goes in my original about where I left off :) I am pleased with myself, and I hope to keep up the good work. I’m also planning on putting copies of my resume in there for when I got job hunting....it’s a little unprofessional to carry them around in the folder I have that has “Waiting to be Discovered” on the outside :3 Unprofessional but loaded with personality :D
I guess that’s all for now...I mean, I’m sure there’s things to talk about but...meh. When I feel ‘meh’ about an entry, that means it’s time to stop typing :3 Soooo, till next time. ‘Night, Sunshines.

Ok, so today was mostly uneventful. I didn’t wake up till like...11. But that’s probably due to the interruption in sleep last night…err...this morning. Right...
Reiko came over to check her My Space, and while she was on AMOS, I realized that there was crap pouring from every direction from under my bed -_- My general cleaning tendencies is to have something that’s clean, then it slowly gets cluttered from constant use, it stays that way for months till I get fed up and clean again. I didn’t actually clean my room, but I did organize a bunch of the stuff that was under my bed. Now all the books, papers, binders and stuff are in a neater fashion in my dresser shelves. But then of course, Reiko had to leave and go off somewhere else...probably work or something. She did say that she’d come by tomorrow and we could watch Final Fantasy – Advent Children together. I’m looking forward to that.
After she left, I realized that there was stuff pouring from the drawers of my dresser, so I went through all the drawers – throwing away old things that I no longer want/need to make room for better things that I enjoy. Then I went through my closet. I get rid of all the empty hanger and put them in the laundry room, and then I organized my closet so that shirts (sleeveless, long sleeve, and dress) and pants (jeans, shorts, and dress) are all in their specific areas. Then I realized that I’d done a fair amount of organizing, and decided to loaf.
I rewatched the second disc of Children of Dune again. I don’t know why, but I keep getting a yen to see it over and over. I will soon grow sick of it and then move on to something else, but as it now is satisfying me I will continue to do it to-death.
Also, the other day Mom and I went to a local jewelry place, and while Mom was looking into getting a better medical bracelet I got my ring sizes. Ever since I out-grew all my old rings, I’ve kinda been in the dark about what size my fingers actually are. I’ve had rings and bands on Amazon bookmarked because I didn’t know what size I needed so I couldn’t add them to my wish list. So, the nice people at the jewelry store confirmed what everyone who knows about this issue already knew. I have really big fingers. Here are my ring sizes for future reference:
Thumb – 10
Pointer – 11
Middle – 10.5
Ring – 10
Pinky – 7
O__O Yeah. So after I fished out the business card that I used to write those sizes down, I went over to Amazon to add those that I could to my jewelry wish list. It kinda bums me that they don’t make a lot of ladies rings in my sizes. I mean, I’m not the only girl with big fingers in the world. Why not cater to everyone of us? Oh well.
Mom and I watched CSI: NY together. Man what a trip. I told Mom last week when the show was starting that I’d be very careful about dating a really artsy guy. Because really hard-core artists find things that give them great pleasure (aka Love) as inspiration, and they can get obsessive about muses because without that muse they don’t have their art, right? Maybe I’m wrong, but it’s just a thing. Or maybe it’s just because I think I’d feel self-conscious about someone painting me or painting while thinking of me or whatever. I mean, I’m not beautiful in the least, so I’d be a little freaked and all. But anyway. On the flip side, it reaffirmed my disdain for Kid Rock. So, all in all, a good show.
Ok. I’m going to go to bed now. Tomorrow I’ll watch Bones but for now, I’m just too tired. G’night.
Which Egyptian God or Goddess do you represent? (Pictures!)
Ma'at, Goddess of Order, Harmony, and Truth
Ma'at was the goddess of physical and moral law in Egypt, of order and truth. She was not much of a goddess, but more of a concept. She was what was right; she was the way things should be.
You lead a very well-ordered life. You are just and keep things in balance. You know just how to react to things, and people like you for that.

Oh thank the Lord! It rained! I was so happy when I heard the thunder in the distance. It finally rained, and by rained I mean poured! It hasn’t rained like that since...well, Rita. I mean, sure we had that last rain that I got so excited about, but it was only a short thunderstorm with moderate drizzles. This was rain! I bet the ducks are so happy too.
We saw the ducks today too! Oh wait. I’m getting ahead of myself. Ok, so today!
Woke up early because I’d forgotten the phone n my room, and I was groggy all day long until after my interview. I made Reiko a shirt that says in moderately sized words “Hi, I’m LostCause, and I’m a...” and then below that in huge lettering “HENTAI”. Reiko did drop by around 1ish to check her MySpace, so I gave it to her then and she loved it and though it was “so frikkin’ awesome!”
Got guzzied up and went to the interview and it went really well. Most interviews run about 5 minutes long, but this one was about 20 minutes, which means we talked a lot, and a lot of conversation usually means they’re more likely to remember you. Unfortunately, they’re in the process of moving, so I won’t know anything till about two weeks. Then once they move, they’re keeping the resumes that stood out and another manager will go over them and hire for other positions. But that’d be much much later. So, at least this one went well. She was surprise to hear about why the Insurance place let me go. She said it seemed to her like someone was scamming them, and they just took advantage of me, which is exactly what happened. But /shrug whatever right?
Oh, we went to Wendy’s and got one of those new sandwiches they’ve been advertising. Mom and I both got the Roasted Turkey & Basil Pesto Frescata sandwich. She didn’t like her, so I ended up eating mine and then half of hers. So it’s a good thing I liked them. I then rewatched Children of Dune just to hear watch Jessica all over again. I love her in the second one so much more than in the first. In the first one she seemed like a desperate scam artist, but in this one she’s fully aware of the things that need to be done and she always seems confident that she can do them.
Now. The birds. My mother and I have made it no secret concerning our love for the avian creatures of this world. We have three humming bird feeders that we clean out every Tuesday (otherwise they’ll be overwhelmingly grimy, and I wouldn’t want to drink out of them so why should I let a humming bird do so?), we have two bird houses (one bird apartment for Vern and Shirley, and a mini-condo that is still unoccupied because Dad didn’t really secure it the right way -_-), and there’s always the ducks. That’s right, the ducks are back. They come and they go as they please, but it always makes me happier when they wander into our yard. They meandered near our back patio when Mom was collecting the hose after watering everything. At this point whenever we see the ducks and they’re actually that close, we’ve gotten into a ritual of taking one of our biggest garbage can lids, hosing it off till it’s moderately clean, and then filling it up with water and leaving it out. All five ducks then proceed to go over to the water-filled-trash-can-lid and drink from it, after they are all done drinking, they’ll begin to preen, and sometimes, they’ll waddle into the tub and splash about. I have named the ducks and thus far no one seems to be able to tell anyone but Low-rider apart from the rest...except me. In order from most-liked to least-liked there’s Low-Rider, Jibber, Jabber, Ponder, and Mussolini (he’s always chasing the other’s around threateningly, and then waddles back as if he’s forgotten why). So, today we saw all three of the variety of birds that we usually see. The flying birds, the waddling birds and the hovering birds. Pretty damn good day.
Oh, wasn’t Gilmore Girls good today? I mean, the way Rory handled Mitch! That was so classic. And to think he once told her she wasn’t aggressive so she’d never make it in a news room. And then the whole April birthday thing! Oh, I felt so bad. One step forward and two steps back. I cannot wait to see the next one...it’s so cruel of them to make us wait a week. Can’t they have these things Biweekly or something? That’d be cool...Not too much and not too little.
Oh well. Sleep meds are kicking in and I told Mom I’d start getting up early so that we could start walking again. Goodnight all.

Ok, so…The wedding yesterday was nice. It would’ve only been nicer if there would’ve been more people there...and if Mom wouldn’t have gotten the dizzy spells near the end there. She has ‘episodes’ where she’ll be feeling fine and then suddenly she’ll just start to feel dizzy. Sometimes shell wake up feeling bad, and then at night she’s fine; and then, there’s times when she’ll wake up feeling great and it hits her in the afternoon.
Anyway. Today was a Dune day. I watched all of Dune, I watched all of Children of Dune and I watched the Dune movie...it’s been a very Duney day...in a very Duney way...and it’s all tinhuviel’s fault. I hate you, woman. In a good way of course.
Other than feeling mildly terrible, I’ve come to notice that there is something wrong with my left ankle. On the left side just below the ankle, I feel a constant pinching sensation when I walk. Now that’s been going on for days now, but today it’s been a sharp pinch followed by a searing or burning sensation. All I can assume is that I did something that my ankle did not approve of and it’s trying to mend.../shrugs nothing else to do about that.
In other news, I managed to pull a rough draft of the next chapter of the EQ Saga together today. I had some scraps of a chapter lying around, but today I inserted and cut and fine-tuned and I fully intend to print it out and go over it sometime tomorrow.
Other than that...I got nothing. So...go away..
Let's be totally random! Taken from purrsia...because she asked for it.
Comment and I'll give you a letter. Then you come up with 10 words that begin with that letter, and explain what they mean to you.
My letter is 'P'
1. Pacific. Because it’s my favorite ocean. It touches Asia and Japan and that’s probably the closet I’ll ever get to either.
2. Package. Because I just love receiving them...though, more often than not, I’m receiving them from myself.
3. Pajamas. Because they’re the only thing I really enjoy wearing.
4. Pamper. Because one day, I intend to do so to myself and anyone I should favor.
5. Panda. Because they’s awfully cute.
6. Panderer. Because that’s what I am, dawg! Now get back on the streets and start bringing me my monies, ‘ho.
7. Pirate. Two words: Jack Sparrow.
8. Plot. Because I find myself constantly trying to develop them.
9. Pluto. Because I associate most with him/it.
10. Polonium. *wags eyebrows* Wouldn’t you like to know?
I had far too much fun with this...
Beware, for I am: Blah
Not much happened today. Wait...that’s not right. Stuff happened. Lot’s of stuff. What happened today? /thinks Ok..I called the boss-lady and asked if there was any time that she wanted me to come pick up my stuff, and she said any time. I apologized and she ‘accepted my apology’. ...Mom and I went walking. We walked 2 miles and decided to go check out Nanny McPhee at the dollar theater. I think Mom wants to perk me up or something. Truthfully, the only thing that really bothers me besides the lack of income is the lack of productivity. I’m afraid I’ll get lazy if I don’t have something to keep me going. Anyway. Mom and I walked. We saw a few things around the stores to look at on our last lap (the cool-out lap). We ended up going into Bath&Body Works, and I finally got to see (or smell as it were) the Cherry Blossom fragrances that chaineddove had told me about. OMG, Odango, you weren’t kidding. I have to admit that I like the white and pink products more than the yellow colored ones. They had a white, yellow, and pink variety of cherry blossom stuff and the yellow was way too strong. I like subtle fragrances. Your perfume isn’t supposed to announce you, it’s supposed to accompany you...and all that jazz.
After the walk, we deposited my check into checkings and then we headed over to Burger King to visit with Grandmere. She’s always at Burger King between the hours of 9:30ish to about 11. Allways with gets her biscuit (well done), her medium diet coke (which she refills throughout the day) and sits and talks with her sister and whoever else should wander through the door and be in the mood to talk. We stayed and talked for a while, then Mom had to deposit some money in her bank.
Then we headed over to the agency to pick up my stuff. We got everything cleaned out in record timing; packed it all in a box and was ready to go. I did forget to get Mrs. R to sign my time sheet, but I can sign it and fax it to her and she can sign it and send it on. I hope...Mrs. A has always loved my chocolate treasure candies, and she always finds an excuse to sneak in and get one. So I grabbed a handful and put them on her desk and said “For the road” she thanked me and we were on our way. No one else talked to us. No one else so much as looked at us. /shrug I’ll assume they were all too busy and leave it at that.
We got home and my Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and The Wardrobe was in. I love special edition stuff. It’s great so far, and all I’ve watched is the bonus footage. I thought I recognized Mr. Tumnus from the movie, and I know where now. He’s the same guy that played as Leto in Children of Dune. He’s got this really sexy Irish accent. It’s absolutely adorable. I also have this wonderful Unicorn Coloring book that I ordered with it (shut up! It was like $2 and the shipping was free if I added $2 so..so...shut up!). But really, it’s the coolest coloring book I’ve ever seen. But I’m not going to color it till I get a new Printer/Scanner/Copier. I want to scan the pages so I’ll be able to color it as much as I like, whenever I like.
That’s another thing. Poor old Madison hasn’t been working right at all. She says that her black and white print cartridge is not installed properly. But every time I check it, I only find that it is installed properly, and then I take it out and put it in again and all she’ll do is blink at me and say it’s not done right. /sighs Oi, these machines. I can print on her though, which is odd...She just won’t scan or copy anything. I was going to get a new one as soon as I’d saved up enough money to get a really good one, but…well. The best laid plans, no da.
Anyway. Mom was feeling sleepy, so she went and napped while I dove into obsessive fan-girl heaven watching the CON (Chronicles of Narnia) bonus footage. These children are charming...Really. I mean, forget the fact that William Moseley (Peter) is extremely cute. They’re all just such a delight. It was a pleasure to watch them be themselves and have fun. This isn’t a occurrence that I’m accustomed to. I have made it evident on several occasions that I loath children to the very core of my being. And to find myself enjoying watching these children was a surprise. Maybe it’s because they’re British...that must be it.
Anyway. Mom finally got up from her nap. She went outside to read on the patio and she spotted two small wood-peckers. She called me out to take pictures, but my camera was kinda dieing and they were too far off anyway. And much too fast to catch on camera.
I came back and Mom wanted to fix her famous strawberry popsicles. She takes sugar, water and freshly grown strawberries and puts them all in a blender, then into little wax cups and puts a pop cycle stick in the center and freezes them all. She makes like 200 and we slowly eat them over the summer. I washed the strawberries and she blended and poured.
Then I went and made this little colorbar.
Kidd Kraddick is my favorite morning radio show. I was upset that I wasn’t waking up early enough to listen to them on a regular basis after the job thing. So I made this for fun.
Then, I watched half of tonight’s Bones. I’d taped it but I couldn’t get through it and check mail and stuff before CSI: NY rolled around. It was really good...both of them, I just don’t know how Bones ends.
Now, I’m showered and the pills are kicking in (thus the shorter sentences), so I’m off to bed. G’night everyone.

I made two orders from Amazon.com, and they were shipped out Tuesday (the 14th). And I’ll be dad-gum if I can’t track their packages. All it says on the web site is that they were shipped out on the 14th and they’ll arrive anywhere between the 21st and the 24th. I really cannot stand the fact that Amazon.com has gotten so sloppy about customer service. Sure, I get the stuff, but I used to be able to track packages whenever I wanted just by being on Amazon and all. Waterfalls, people? Waterfalls!
But as for what I ordered, here’s a little list.
1. Batman - The Animated Series, Volume One (DC Comics Classic Collection)
2. City of Heroes Binder: Prima's Official Game Guide; Issues 1-6 (Prima Official Game Guides)
3. Frank Herbert's Children of Dune (TV Miniseries)
4. Thankful by Kelly Clarkson
5. Legend (Ultimate Edition)
I cannot wait till it arrives too. I mean honestly...
