It's pretty self explanatory :| I was really hoping to have this video fully edited and up now, but it's obvious that that just won't be happening. I need to whittle it down and work on a few things. But until I have it, here's a something from it that won't fit where I wanted it. Anyone wanna guess what the next episode will be about :D? Please do enjoy...
- 11:55 Off to run errands and hand out this weeks resumes -_- #
- 13:03 Ok. Headed home. Looking forward to washing this make up off. #
- 13:25 I'm home, redressed and I think I'm going to go ahead and clean part of the church.... #
- 13:26 ...I splurged on myself on the way home, so I need to balance it out. Got a strawberry limeade from Sonic. I know, I'm wicked -..- #
- 13:27 btw, it's warmed up a lot outside! It's 30 degrees :D #
- 15:00 All done with the top floor! Going to Arby's :D #
- 21:51 Just finished editing Episode 6. I'll have to see about uploading it tomorrow. #
- 23:00 ....Jackass! :D Uber skills...you has them :3 (YouTube youtu.be/8_MlngAh0No?a) #
- 23:42 My left knee is killing me >..<' #

But it's a job, right? I'd be working from 8:30 to 4:30 with an hour lunch break, and I'd be making $7.25 an hour. They said that I could come in Monday and start working, but I should go home and think about it first. Mrs. Soma gave me her cell number and told me to call back if I was interested... so after I thought about it for an hour, I called back to tell her I was interested and she said that she'd be making the decision tomorrow, so she'd give me a call. /shrug. Of course, it was then that I remembered her answering her cell near the beginning of our interview and hearing another young woman tell her that she was very interested in the job still. Mrs. Soma had walked out to finish taking the call. I suppose it's all part of the business, it just seems... strange. One minute they're wanting me to come in Monday for the job, the next they'll call me back about it. Either way, I've done all I can. The rest of the decision is up to them :) I'm trying to remind myself not to get my hopes up =..=
In other news, I finally got around to watching Supernatural ... dear God. I knew it was bad, but I cried like a baby ;_; For some odd reason I cannot wait for S5 to be over just so I can breath freely again. I can't track where this will go and how it will end and it's killing me. I keep wondering who they'll kill off next >..< That does things to you.
Well...I guess that's all for now. Mom's not feeling good and Dad just called to ask if I'd go to Wal-Mart with him to pick up her meds. So I'm off. Later, Sunshines.

- 09:17 OMG! Job interview at the dentist! #
- 10:16 Phew. Well that didn't last long. I'll know in about the job in a week. #
- 12:00 Just changed my AC filter. S'only good for 30 days, so I'm designating the Emerald sharpie as household stuffs. #
- 12:02 ...did my washer just stop...? #
- 12:08 @Twilight One word: Alice. Anything she wore was pretty awesome :3 #
- 12:24 Ok. Updated my 2010 calandar. I feel better :) #

- 12:33 Hm. Might be a good idea to go through my calandar and type up all the important dates... #
- 12:47 You know, I'd really like to get S1 & 2 of @theguild, but I have a sneaking suspicion someone got it for me for Christmas. #
- 13:00 Guess #red is a great color on Twitter :) #
- 13:20 Hey, anyone seen my house key? #
- 13:27 Ah. Found it in the washer. Must've been in one of my jeans. Thanks guys :) #
- 13:49 Totally typing up my calandar events in an Excel spreadsheet. I do love this program :) #
- 14:27 Finally finished. Anyone wanna guess the page count for this event calandar list? #
- 14:51 Ok, where the hell is my purple sharpie?! >..> #
- 15:39 Yayz! My red and black Asian spoons are here! XD #
- 15:52 Miso happy X3 #
- 16:38 @rebeccacurrence Frodo? ...sorry. The combination of 'precious' and joy of saying 'Frodo lives' was just too much :) #
- 17:20 Quick jaunt over to the rents to talk to Tommy, and all we've managed to do is uninstall the antivirus/firewall stuff. #
- 17:22 Tommy's pretty convinced it's the antivirus/firewall software that's the problem. #
- 17:22 Tomorrow, we call our ISP again. #
- 18:01 OMG! I just found the CDs with my WoW characters' pictures on them! XD So happy and relieved right now! #
- 18:20 Just got a call from the computer place. It'll be $150 to repair Mako. That's actually really good since it'r a Mac. #
- 19:05 Argh! Why do 'Rename' and 'Delete' have to be side by side?! #
- 22:14 Finally finished labeling everything. Time for a break =..= Before my eyes start bleeding. #
- 23:12 For some odd reason I was craving breakfast for supper. So I made eggs, bacon and toast :) #
- 23:33 Finally! Laundry's done. #

Compared to the last two days, today has been pretty busy. Woke up early and got dressed and ready. Mom and I went to town and I stopped at various places, handing out my resume. I also went to two staffing agencies, and I have an interview for a receptionist at a local insurance place this Friday at 11:30 (wish me luck :3)
After going to the hospital, the doctor’s office, the college (which, doesn’t accept resumes unless they have a position opened >..> lame), and the two staffing agencies, we were hungry and tired. So, we headed to McDonalds and then went home. We ate and watched HGTV (I love Color Splash and Deserving Design), and then we went outside and sat in the swing. We even swung on the new swing, but the board isn’t really wide enough and...alas, I am out of shape. But I would swing for a few minutes, and my syatic nerve would start to act up, so I’d go around the yard taking pictures, and then I’d feel ok again and I’d get back on and swing again :)
The reason I’m taking so many pictures is because everything is blooming! Our bradford pear tree is full of white blossoms, we’ve been having yellow daffodils everywhere that’re just so pretty, now there are two bushes behind our house that are full of yellow blossoms and the cherry blossom tree (the one that split in three from the ice storm?) has white blossoms all over it ^..^ It’s so cool.
Of course, Mom got a call from one of my Aunts....I think Aunt Audrey. They found my Uncle Wilford in his bed today, dead. Mom was a little shaken, because she said she’d just seen him at Richard’s funeral and he’d looked fine. She even said that she went out of her way to hug him... of course, Mom’s now really on the ball about the family reunion thing. She says that it’s a shame that the only time they all get together is when there’s a funeral, and she really wants to have a happy occasion to get together before they loose another one o..o
I have no idea how, but somehow, I got volunteered for helping to organise this monster >..> I can’t say that I really mind, because I know Mom doesn’t really know a lot about these sorts of things - and, I’m not saying that I’m so great at it, but still, I have gone to conventions before, so at least I have an idea of what could/should be done. For one, we’re working on getting a head count of who all wants to go, that way we’ll be able to get a pricing list (this place is going to coast $800 for the 2 nights we’re staying, so it cannot be free =..=). After the head count, we’ll figure out who intends to show up and when...I can’t see charging full price to someone who plans on only being there one night/day, and if people bring campers and don’t actually stay on, what’s the point in charging them, right? Also, I want to get as many e-mail addresses as I can, and actually start a news letter from an official e-mail (not one of my own) with updates and suggestions and all that jazz. I told Mom that for the evenings we can all just eat supper together and talk and enjoy one another’s company, but for the days, we’ll need to think of activities and stuff to do >..> I’m not the best person for that. I also told Mom that I’d like to get pictures of her siblings that have passed away, perhaps both past and present photos, and blend those pictures together and put their names on the photo and frame it nicely....it just would be a nice reminder of those who couldn’t make the reunion...I asked Aunt Lane about that, since I know she has a lot of pictures of everyone with her genealogy project. I have little doubt that during the reunion, I will have my camcorder out as well :)
Aaaand I’ve got church tonight. I’ll be asking Alicia if she plans on going to Wal-Mart this Friday at 11ish. In case everyone has been living in a hole for a while... Twilight comes out this Saturday. Now, I have it on good authority (both Scamp, who’s sister works at a Wal-Mart, and from calling the local Wal-Mart) that at midnight on the 20/21 they will be pulling out the Twilight DVDs at Wal-Mart. Not only that, every Wal-Mart should be having a fairly large Twilight parafinelia section with clothes and accessories....I called the local Wal-Mart to make sure I wasn’t just showing up for nothing this Friday night/Saturday morning, and the dude in electronics said that they’ll be stocking the DVD’s at Midnight on Friday/Saturday, and he’s not certain what’s going on, but in another department behind the jewelry section, they’re setting something up >..> Sounds worth investigating at least. I even called Jennifer (a local family friend who I found out is a Twi-Teen) to see if maybe she and her sister and mom would like to come with us to Wal-Mart and hang out and see what there was to see....but they’re going out of town tomorrow so...yeah. Make no mistake, I fully intend to buy my copy of Twilight from Target. The Twilight-Target deal is a much better one if I’m asked (and it’s my journal, so I’ll pretend that I was). A 3-disc deal for $17.99? Hello! I am so all over that....but the hard-core fan girl in me(who squees randomly at SpunkRansom’s golden eyes) demands that I show up if only to see what there will be to see.
/sigh. I guess that’s all...I don’t have anything else to add, and it’s about time I started getting ready for church. It’s been so nice out today...I’m glad we got some outside time :) I’ll talk later. See ya, Sunshines
Your Animal is the Goose
You are are a resourceful person who needs a lot of stability in life.
You rather save for a rainy day, even if it means on missing out on fun impulses.
When you feel secure, you are incredibly creative and artistic. You are also very witty.
You like to invest in yourself and for the future. You like to always be learning and gaining skills.
Tonight, after our Bible study was essentially over, our pastor says, “Well! It’s the 25th of February! Ya’ll know what that means....” and we all sort of looked about at one another, wondering if today was a holiday or some event that we’d somehow forgotten. Then, he follows up with,
“Only 10 more months till Christmas!!!!” and we’re like o..o...^..^...=..= He continued to mention announcements, and at the end of them I asked, “And you will keep us all appraised of the approaching Christmas situation?” and he grinned and nodded....our pastor’s a nut :D
/sigh. what else? Oh. Interview went well....I think. You never really can tell until you get a call (...or not). The good doctor and his wife/office manager, Mrs. Soma (funny that I’d be working for a Soma :D) are both Indian (not Native American, mind you, but actually of Indian ethnicity ^..^) and they seem genuine and nice people. Aside from them there is only one other girl, the receptionist. So, a small business but that means less drama. I found out there’s two other doctor’s offices back there with them (they’re sorta hidden >..>). I was advised to call them next week to remind them of my interest in the position and I would be contacted....if I don’t get this job, I will definitely be going about to all the doctor’s offices and just handing out resumes =..=
........that’s all I got. G’night, Sunshines!
You Are a Yellow Light
You take life at a sustainable past. Fast enough to do a lot, but not fast enough to leave everyone behind.
You are open to whatever may come your way in life. You're very receptive.
You are quite thoughtful and knowledgeable. You have the perfect mix of reflection and experience.
You think before you act. You like to know some of the facts before you make a decision.
PS: So, I finally got Mom to watch X-Men and tonight X-Men 2, and she's actually really enjoying them. It all started when Hugh Jackman hosted the Oscars and was on Oprah the next day, and I told her that he was in the X-Men series as Wolverine and would be in another movie concerning his origin this year sometime. So, she wanted to see the previous movies (The X-Men Series) that he's been in so she'd understand the new one better next time. /looks this way and that, then whispers. I think my Mom has a crush on Hugh Jackman XD! I can't wait to see the Origins movie! ...and the next Transformers movie...and Watchmen ....and...probably several others O..o; What are some movies that ya'll can't wait to see? :D
I sent off a resume for this reception job about a month ago, and it was at a paediatrics office. They were nice enough to call me and tell me that they’d already hired someone. But the doctor asked if they could keep my resume on file for later. I got a call this afternoon from them, and I have an interview for tomorrow at 10 a.m. O..O Wowzers! I mean, I feel like I didn’t even try for the position the first time around...it’s such a blessing to get asked for an interview. Of course....interviews don’t really mean much...I’m the first to tell you that much. Still, it is encouraging.
I was also happy to hear that Supernatural has been picked up for it’s fifth season! ....of course, that only means I need a job that much more...otherwise, I won’t be able to afford season 4 or 5 when they finally come to DVD ;) As is, I feel I’m sorta behind on my fandoms in a way..../stares longingly at S3 Bones Box Set. Not that I’ll be buying much of anything fun even for my first few pay checks. I’ll need to start saving immeadately....otherwise, I won’t have much of a savings to speak of -..-
In superficial news, True Beauty finally skipped off into the sunset. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed ridiculing these so called ‘Beautiful People’ almost all season long...And, I did really love Billy (which, surprises me, since I don’t usually go for blonds), but...I don’t think I could’ve taken another week of Joel’s conceited attitude >..> Not Joel McHale, of course! But the dude on there named Joel who was a conceited jerk. No, Joel McHale is my McDreamy :D Aaaaand I hope he makes fun of the ‘Douchbag’ meeting just like he did last week :) Anyway. I liked Billy and Julia was pretty ok too (considering), but they had gotten...awfully smarmy (which fit in well with the judges I suppose). Also, can I say that the thing at the end with the chocolates was hilarious? It was! OK, so the gimmick to this thing is that these gorgeous people are competing against each other to be the most beautiful person in America; but, what they don’t know is the judges are also judging them on inner beauty and spying on their every move with hidden cameras all over the house. Well, at the end, they received a tray of chocolates with a card saying “Here’s a chance for you to see through our eyes - Your judges.” and they were staring at the chocolates like it was a puzzle, all the while not realizing that on the back of the card was the answer “Go Down Stairs” XD!!!! Hilarious! It was edited but it looked like it took them five minutes just to flip the stupid card over!
....Reiko’s birthday is coming soon. She’s gonna be 21....God, but it makes me feel old. I need to call her and ask which address she’ll be at. Otherwise, it’ll be hard for me to know where to send her present. It still bugs me that I didn’t get Celeste’s address...not that it excuses me from not sending her a card. Mom and I had found a local Hallmark store, and they have a ton of those great musical cards, and I was going to send her one of those but....well, Mom and I kept getting sick and forgetting. I should’ve looked her up on white pages.com or something. It’s no excuse =..= I’m usually on the ball with birthdays...dang moving anyway.
Oh, and I finally put my Twilight fic up on juli_bear . I private posted it ages ago, and I finally got around to proof-reading and publicly posting it. I swear, I need to get my butt in gear. Having moved or not, I was supposed to have that LJ as my Fan Fic/Group area, and I’ve only posted the first chapter of one fic so far! ...I guess I’m slugging because really Twilight is one of the few fics I’m working on currently. Every other fic has gone stale =..= But! The first chapter of my new Broken Wing is now available, and I’ve posted it to twilight_book as well :) I really hope having it posted with my LJ as well as having a community aware of it will help motivate me.
....I can’t think of anything else....I guess that means it’s time for me to shut up and distract myself elsewhere :) Talk later, Sunshines!
You Are Carrot Juice
You are a warm, cooperative person. You work well with others.
While you have a fairly strong personality, you don't have a lot of clashes and conflicts.
You are ambitious, but not ruthlessly so. You won't step on anybody's feet to get to the top.
You are successful, and all your success has come while looking out for others.
I went, I saw, I applied. Job fairs are not places to invest all your hopes though =..= Most of the booths were handing out pamphlets that directed you to their web site. None of the booths accepted Resumes (which is a bit disappointing, as I printed 20 copies of my resume -..-), and I filled out only 2 applications. But, I did get a lot of pamphlets, like I said. Some of which, appear to not be my field or even a place I could apply (nurses positions and such), but that won’t stop me from trying :) Even those places need office peoples.
Of the two places I officially applied to, I am obviously more enthusiastic about one than the other. I applied to Big Cedar Lodge, which, I don’t even know if they have one of those around here, but I do know that they are like a Bass Pro shop, and there’s one of those in Branson (at the Branson Landing too). They have offices, so I would definitely be eager to work in that division if I could. The drive to Branson would be...well, at this point, not that big a deal.
The second place I applied to would be awesome if it worked out. It’s a radio station for Arkansas stationed out of Branson as well. It would be starting small of course. But who knows! Getting experience there, networking a bit....that would be an awesome gig....could you imagine me on the radio? Lord knows I have the perfect face for it =..= Besides that it would just be fun. I can easily go on and on about any topic, and I’d like to think I can speak openly with just about anyone...who knows right? What a job to have.
I did stop at a both for the local community collage here (fondly referred to as NAK). They weren’t hiring of course, merely offering info for potential students. But the lady I spoke with was very helpful, and she said they do have a program for getting a degree in graphic design....which I’d love to do. Photography or Journalism could be something too, if they have sufficient courses for that, but graphic design would just be awesome :) Of course, I did mention to her my previous experience and schooling and she said to apply for an office position at the main campus in town, because they never know when they may need someone and it’s just good to have your paperwork all there.
The only other thing was a local coffee house called Uncommon Grounds....they weren’t hiring, just selling ‘breakfast’ (if you can call pastries and coffee breakfast), but the place really is the only coffee shop in town. And, free wi-fi :)
So that was my morning. I got there around...9:15/9:20ish and I was about by 10:30. Oddly enough...ok, this is totally off subject and all. But, Mom has these boots right? They’re nice boots that she got from Wal-Mart that only go up to her ankle and they lace up. Nice, sturdy boots. Well, she wasn’t wearing them a lot, and when the ice storm rolled in I had no shoes sufficient to walk in. So, she lent me her boots. They were too tight and hurt my feet, but it got the job done. So, today, it’s cold out and I needed boots. Not high-heel one (like I have packed away somewhere) just nice, sturdy boots. Well, Mom offered to lend me hers since she’s pretty sure I stretched them out during the ice storm =..= Well, I walked in them the whole time...and they didn’t hurt o..o I was a little shocked. But I got back home and sat down after taking them off, and then I got up again....and my left leg was hurting. Like in my thigh muscle...I don’t really know if it’s related to the boots or anything but >..> It’s just odd.
So...Mom went to Mrs. Karen’s to learn how to make bread. She had me drop her off before the job fair. She said she’d get a ride home with Aunt Carolyn or something. I kinda have the house to myself. Speaking of ‘house to myself’, next time Dad comes in (the 5th perhaps) Mom and Dad are getting ready to head out to New Orleans for another one of Dad’s training things. They’ll be gone all week from the 8th to the 13th/14th of March. I told Alicia about it and invited her over. She’s always eager to get out of her parent’s house, and we get along well. Besides, I don’t have any friends in the immediate area other than her. At least none I’d feel like I was imposing on. I mean, seriously. Chibi’s my old previous friend who lives marginally close, and she couldn’t come on a weekday to visit me. She lives 3 hours away -..- Admittedly, I could spend the whole week alone and be just fine...still, it’s usually more fun when someone else is here.
/looks about. Well...I guess I’ll sign off for now. Maybe I can watch a movie or something before Mom gets in :) Later, Sunshines.
Your Gemstone is Emerald
Balanced, liberated, and peaceful.
You bring luck into any situation.
So, Life’s been throwing me curve balls lately. Got a call from my parents Thursday night...the houses might be sold...but the people there don’t want me staying for more than the allotted time – 30 days. If the paper work goes through, I’ll have to be out by December 30. I go through the emotions. Shock, denial, regret, sadness, confusion, more regret, and sadness and finally acceptance. The rents have been talking about this lovely modulare home up in Arkansas that they want to get for me. I'll have an acre of my own up there with them in Arkansas... Then they call back Friday night, the preliminaries have been a success. I have till November 30 to get my stuff and get out. Once again, a lot of that cycle starts up again. Reiko’s wedding is in the latter half of December...if they’d only given me till December 30th I would’ve been entirely content...
Then I remind myself how blessed I am. Yeah...I gotta pack up real quick, and it’s inconvenient ...but, I have parents that rock and will support me...it’s not the end of the world. I can come back for Reiko’s wedding. And the Twilight movie? Yeah, it comes out Nov. 21...kinda puts a bit of a dampener on things, little cramp in the style here. But hey! Last ho-ra with the girls. We can be carefree and eat sushi and go to books a million and watch/ridicule/fall in love with the movie. So, what am I complaining about?
The biggest regret...comes from work. I will miss my girls so much. I’ll miss hearing about their kids, and just the banter we share every morning. Plus, you know, being able to flip off the head nurse without getting fired is pretty sweet ^..^ It hurts a little to know that I’m putting them through ‘the search’ again. Finding someone capable of doing 5 jobs like I do. It hurts more to know, eventually I’ll be little more than an e-mail away...and then I’ll be little more than a memory. Maybe that’s harsh or cynical...but it’s how I’ve come to understand things recently.
The rents are coming down...they should be here...perhaps at 12. Mom’ll visit with everyone down here and help me pack up as much as I can. Dad has to go off shore. Turning in my notice...that’ll probably be the hardest thing. I’m hoping to make the first two weeks of November my last two weeks...maybe that’s selfish of me, wanting to stay as long as I possibly can before I ultimately have to leave. Lord knows, I’ve got so much to pack and...so little time. Still, I’m determined to make what time I have left as tear-free and cheerful as possible. Being jobless sucks though, no matter how you look at it. Once again, I’m wading into the unknown -..- I hate that pool.
Well, I was hoping to stay up as late as I possibly could to see the rents...but...I dunno. I know once I take my shower, I’ll be longing for my bed and some nice oblivion. I’ve been having a sinus headache all day long too…does not help with cleaning =..=
I’ll talk later...’Night, Sunshines.
You Are a Werewolf
You are moody and easily provoked.
You are highly loyal and protective of those you love.
While you can be intense at times, you are generally a laid back person.
But if a fight comes your way, you will fight â€˜til the death if necessary.
You seem normal to most people. No one understands how different you can be.
It's like a switch flips for you sometimes - and then you're a completely different creature.
*pant pant pant* Ok, finished as in the floor is done. We’ve been moving a few things in little by little, but I’m far from moved in. Dad said the toilet isn’t done, the trim isn’t done, it’s not at all clean, and no major things have been moved in (bed, clothes, fandoms, etc). I’m just excited to finally see it done. I actually woke up pretty early for a Saturday. It was around 8:30, and I was very hungry, so I went outside and asked Dad if he wanted some eggs. He’s infamous for having 2 pieces of toast with peanut butter anywhere between 4 and 6 in the morning and then working till 10 and starving. He said he’d love some, so I fixed coffee, bacon, four eggs (two for each of us) and some toast (to sopp up the eggs). We had breakfast and then got ready to leave for town.
We priced toilets and doors, and then realized that Dad hadn’t taken measurements for the wall or toilet seat, so it wouldn’t be a good idea to buy a toilet without precise measurements. We looked at doors, but I knew we weren’t getting anything. Everything’s so expensive, so we’re just going to saw off part of the bottom of the door and re-attach the bottom with some sort of sealer. Dad seems to know what he’s doing, so I’ll just let him figure it out.
We came home, and I was excited because season 2 of Bones finally came in. After eating we started putting the shelf liner in, and then loading up the shelves with my glasses, cups, mugs and plates. Mom and Dad had to go back to town (for the toilet and some other things). I stayed and put up my fans, and my chairs (those that I could carry that is), and some of the other little things that would go in the kitchen and bathroom, along with the gifts that I’ve got wrapped for Christmas and birthdays. I tried to assemble my DVD cabinet...but evidently I can’t wrap my head around the directions =..= Mom and Dad came back with a new toilet and Mom helped me put liner in the rest of the cabinets. We also cleaned up a bit more, or tried to. We keep tracking stuff in as we come in and out, so it’s hard to keep the place clean. Mom and Dad had to leave again, so I tried to load in as many stuff full of boxes as I could, but there were some things that were just too heavy.
I unloaded as much as I could till it started getting dark. Then, I came home and showered. I’ve been watching Supernatural ever since. Though, I did manage to come up with a list of products that I regularly buy for future use. Dad has said he’ll try to get my bed and other heavy items in on Monday, so I’ll probably be moved in by then if nothing goes wrong /crosses fingers.
Now I’m going to have my mid-night snack and then o to bed. I’ve been trying to finish up this entry for the past 2 hours, so..I’m gonna go ahead and close this out and hit the hey. Later, sunshines.
Saturday I was feeling terrible. My whole right leg and part of my right side was really killing me. So, I hobbled around the house for a while, trying to slowly put weight on my leg so that it would just adjust (or I would adjust to the pain, whichever). Mom and Dad stayed over at the house for quite a while, and I made myself useful by doing the laundry and brining them food and drinks.
Reiko called that afternoon/evening and asked if I’d mind hanging out with her for a little while. She said that her grandpa had died the day before and she was depressed and just wanted some company while she did chores and stuff. I didn’t mind since she drives me around and then drops me back off. Plus it’s nice to spend time with her when I can. She actually gave me my birthday/house warming preset. She said she couldn’t wait to give it to me. She got me Stardust...and the page is evidently not fully constructed yet. It’s the blue one on the end. She knows I collect them so when she was on vacation she saw this one and got it for me. Now isn’t that sweet? So, I decided to name her after Reiko so that I always remember where I got it. She had to take care of all her critters and clean up her room a bit. Milo’s cage needed to be cleaned out, her beta fish’s vase needed to be cleaned out, the litter box had to be changed and she wanted to show me her new snake. It’s a pink girl snake, which I assume will look great next to her red snake Mephisto. But we got the chance to talk a bit, and she just needed to keep busy so she wouldn’t be so depressed and she didn’t want to be by herself.
Sunday was Mom’s birthday. I had gotten her Wolfgang Puck 18 Piece Stainless Steel Cookware Set, Quigley Down Under, Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats, and Sterlng Silver Filigree Dragonfly Hook Earrings with a matching necklace…that doesn’t appear to be in stock anymore. I had put the Quigley Down Under DVD in a box with the Necklace & Earrings, and I placed the Rachel Ray book against the back of that box and wrapped both together. And I’d been telling her for a while that I had all her gifts taken care of for the year, so she was fairly excited to see what I’d gotten her. So, after breakfast I gave her the small gift that I’d wrapped all together. She opened it and loved everything. Then I pretended to get confused and went in my room and brought out the huge box of pots (which I probably should’ve gotten Dad to do, since it aggravated my back all over again). She really loved all her gifts and was in a great mood before we left for church. Se was bragging about it to everyone she could.
After church, we had dinner at Sicily’s, which I enjoy if only for the salad bar ^..^ ...and desert =..= Heh. But yeah, we were supposed to go to Outback, but there was such a long line that we decided to head over to Sicily’s with my adopted grandparents. I swear, I enjoy throwing a lot of crap in my salad and Sicily’s is the only place I know that has a huge bar just for that. Anyway, after that, we headed home to get the other car. Dad had to go to the nursing home because it was his Sunday to sing. Mom and I headed to Budget Cuts and I got a hair cut (that I’m not totally happy with, but it’s hair, it’ll grow on me). Then we went to Wal-Mart to shop for groceries...and I ended up buying the first season of Heroes...I couldn’t help myself. We got all our groceries and headed home. I ended up watching disc 1-4 Sunday night and I didn’t really get to bed till about 3 a.m. O..o
Monday...I think I slept till around 10. Dad woke me up and I ate breakfast, then I got ready and we headed over to the Nexus again. I painted all of the bathroom trim, which is the only trim in the house that is a different color. Then we realized that we needed to paint the trim around the doors and windows =..= I guess it was more like, I realized the white trim was still on the wall, and Dad realized he’d forgotten to tape off or take off that trim for me to paint. So, after I painted the bathroom trim, I put first coats on all the stair rails, the sides of the stairs and the upstairs rail. Dad had to take a break for lunch, and I figured I would too. We took a break for a while and then headed back. I put second coats on everything and Dad put the first coat on the beams after cleaning them. Then we went to town and looked at trim. I found some that’s partially decent. We ate at Rally’s that night which is one of my favorite places even though I never eat there.
Last night, I got up to disc 6 on Heroes and I started reading Writing Out the Storm. It’s a pretty good book so far, but I’m kinda getting tired of the “Don’t be afraid, just write” theme that keeps repeating in the four chapters that I did read. I’m still planning on reading it though, just to see if it gets better.
I have to say, this weekend without internet wasn’t too bad. It was more like an annoyance than a crisis. The only purpose I had for internet was buying stuff from Amazon (and other places), chatting (which I don’t do much of lately), e-mailing (which no e-mails me much lately), and gaming (which I really want to just quit). It did suck that I couldn’t check mail or anything, but I did that this morning and didn’t have any mail...no love for MM. Sad panda.
Oh well...I’ll go ahead and sign off. I’ll talk later (if/when I can), Sunshines.
Your Score: House Tully
45% Dominant, 72% Extroverted, 63% Trustworthy
Dutiful. Affable. Total doormats. The kindest and gentlest of the houses, you are of House Tully.
You are a submissive personality, meaning that ruling is not something that intrigues you. You posses an odd kind of wisdom in knowing that the throne has too many drawbacks; your interests are far more domestic. You are no threat to the ruling powers, but your strong loyalties to hearth and home make you too difficult to be bought--and if you can’t be bought, you’re usually destroyed.
You are also introverted. You don’t enjoy broadcasting your devices and ambitions to the entire world; instead, you prefer to confide in a close-knit support system of friends and family. You’re very talkative with those you trust, and you’re the type of person who will review plans endlessly. Trust from you must be earned, and you’re very cautious around new people. In Westeros, that’s probably a good thing.
Perhaps most notably, you are trustworthy. Once you are connected to someone, you will stick with them, come Hell or high water. Your loyalties run very deep, and you’re definitely not the type to run willy-nilly betraying friends and destroying alliances. Unfortunately, you lack both the physical strength and the cojones to stand up to those who do you wrong. To those seeking power, you’re an obstacle--but a lawn mower doesn’t fear the garden gnome. Lions, dragons, and krakens all eat fish like you for breakfast.
Representative characters include: Catelyn Stark, Edmure Tully, and Brynden "Blackfish" Tully
Similar Houses: Stark, Targaryen, and Tyrell
Opposite House: Greyjoy
When playing the game of thrones, you play it as best you can, even when your best isn’t good enough.

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula a that might help you answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
1+20+20+9+20+21+4 +5 = 100%
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%
AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%
So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.

LJ Topic: “My Biggest Mistake and What I Hope that I Have Learned From it"
Hmm. What a loaded topic. How do you approach something like that?...and more importantly, what is my biggest mistake? I’ve never been the type to rehash problems or mistakes. You make mistakes, you learn from it and you move on letting the wound heal in due time; a good motto really considering I’m the obsessive type that’d just as soon beat my own self down before anybody else. Not only that but my memory isn’t worth ash, so even when I do make mistakes, I tend to forget not long after. Then there’s the fact that my life is over-all mundane and what mistakes I do make don’t really impact the dullness of it.
So...should I talk about my horse Rocky, and how I agreed to sell him because my bouts with the endometriosis were making it impossible to ride him and give him the proper attention he needed? No. That wasn’t really a mistake. He went on to greener pastures, even if I couldn’t ride. Perhaps I should talk about believing the local doctors for over three years when they said it was all in my head, then seeing a specialist and finding out my condition was actually worsening...no. Too self-righteous. I think I’m beginning to see why this topic is one that I find hard to write on...my mistakes are not mistakes, only difficult lessons. It felt terrible to sell Rocky after growing attached to him and loving him for so long, but it was the right thing to do. He was wasting away in a pasture, doing nothing but being fed and eating grass all day long. The same with my doctors. They’re doctors, they should be smart enough to know when something’s wrong, no? But they let me down by closing their minds and assuming that if they could not find something, there must be nothing wrong. I learned to listen to myself, to trust myself and to pay more attention to who I’m confiding my trust to.
But I don’t want it to seem as though I’m trying to cop out of the subject. So I’ll write about mistakes and what I’ve learned. But haven’t I already? Is this enough, typing out that these were mistakes and that I don’t view them as such?…I’ll throw in one more, just to be certain.
When I graduated from High School, I debated for a while as to what I should go to college for. I had to go to college; my brother didn’t and my parents have ragged on it every sense. Not going to college would disappoint them and make them feel as though they’d failed at raising two children. But like many young people, I had no idea what it was that I should be going for. Should I pursue something that would flourish my writing and allow me to better write my book? …No, that would be entirely too risky. What if I didn’t get anywhere with it and ended up wasting the money? OK. Web design. I’ve always enjoyed graphic and web design, and I’ve never had a degree for it so that I could do it professionally. Certainly that would be something worthwhile. No...risky again and besides that, Nichols (the closest official college) is a very expensive school. I don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for something like that, a field that I may never succeed in. So, I investigated the local community college. Their equipment wasn’t as good, and they didn’t have quite as many options, but still! I could study Office Systems and Accounting, earn some sort of Business Degree and then I’d at least have a fall-back. Something that I could always use…but certainly something I didn’t want to do for the rest of my life. 2+ years later, I earned my Associates Degree in Office Systems Technology...I’ve been working at this little desk job, a job my degree provided for me. And all the time I keep saying “If I could go back to school for something like writing or web design, I’d do it in a heartbeat.”
Perhaps having this degree under my belt was a good idea. Perhaps it will help me in the future…but the time it took to get it could’ve been used to further my dreams. I should’ve trusted myself or at least been willing to take the risks. But I didn’t want to burden my parents should the financial situation get out of hand, and I was too afraid to fail them (and myself). Failure is a part of life. Everyone does it (and I can say that without feeling cliché). And we all deal with it and walk away with something more. Sure, you may have failed, but you still have something more than what you came with. I learned something else while at this desk job, filing, copying, taking phone calls, and organizing mail...yes. I can be content with this. It’s something I can do and that I do well...But it isn’t fulfilling. It doesn’t pressure me, it doesn’t challenge me, and it doesn’t satisfy me. In its own way, it smothers me. I can’t write because all of my efforts are devoted to this job. I’m tired at the end of the day, and I’m not strengthening the very skills that make me me. Perhaps the biggest thing I’ve learned from this…is not to be afraid. I’m going to fail at some things. It’s inevitable. But I shouldn’t be afraid of that, or if I am, I shouldn’t let that paralyze me.
In the future (once I’ve accomplished many other goals), I hope to be able to go back to college for the things I love to do. Maybe I will fail at them...but if I do, at least I can say that I dared to dream.
Beware, for I am: Hungry
Today was cool. Took a huge smoothie to work with me, so I never actually got hungry. That’s one way of making sure your blood sugar never drops.
...Not much else to say...My friends list has been acting weird...It keeps showing the page that was fresh three days ago. I have to press the back button and then go forward. Weird.
That’s all. Later.

Beware, for I am: Blah
Got through watching last night’s Supernatural...Oh...my...God. You do not end a season like that! OMGWTFBBQ!!! That was just wrong! Now we’re gonna have to wait God-knows how long to find out what the heck’s gonna happen to the boys! That’s just so wrong! I’m also a little put off at the fact that they keep showing these demons as if they’re omnipresent and can posses anyone at anytime from anywhere. If random demons were omnipresent, they would undermine God, and that means they wouldn’t be afraid of him, which they are. But that’s just my take on it.
/pant, pant, pant. Ok...Rant over with.
Also, I have an interview this afternoon at 1 with that place that interviewed me two weeks ago. Now that they’ve moved into their larger building, they have other positions that need filling, and they wanna see if I could fill one. Joy. So I’ll be heading to their new location today and I’ll need to ask for someone named Nicole. We shall see how that goes.
I’m off to go chow down on some college cuisine. Later.
Which mix of Hogwarts houses are you
You're a Slytherdor! You are a natural leader and
have the personality to back it up. Often
people are hesitant to approach you because
they feel that you will reject them. You have a
bit of a temper but most of the time you're
able to keep it in check; however when you are
really pissed off, people better watch out. In
your life you have a lot of things you want to
accomplish, whether it's for yourself or
another cause. You can be determined in trying
to pursue this goal but your morals are too
steady to allow you to be absolutely ruthless.
You don't let many people know this, but you
actually like the idea of chivalry (but you try
to keep this buried) and you try to live your
life with honor. You don't back away from tough
decisions. Your weakness is that sometimes you
can be arrogant, you forget about the 'lesser
people' and this leads you to underestimate
your opponents. With the charisma of a
Gryffindor and the ambition of a Slytherin you
can be great in life!

Beware, for I am: Blank
My goodness. Nothing has happened, ya’ll. Really nothing. Other than me declaring a Robotech marathon and watching about ¾ of the first season. Nothing. I mean, Reiko has come over both Tuesday and Wednesday, but really...nothing else has been happening. It’s boring really. But I’m kinda not really in the mood to do anything. It sucks.
Well, at least I did get the whole lawn mowed today. So that’s something. And Mom and I plan to mosey on down to Rid Stick and have me take the civil service test. At the very least it’ll open up some more jobs for me. Other than that...I got nothing…So...Goodnight.
