Thank God for turnip greens

Nice to know no one missed me. Course it's only been a week, maybe I shoulda waited longer. There's nothing exciting going on here. Had the electricians come on Fri to do the central air work. I've heard the air conditioning guy is coming back today, but he never talked to me, and no one reminded me last night (which they usually do when someone's coming up, just in case).
Saturday, Karli and I went to the Hog Roast at the local Harley store. I should have taken my camera, I know. With the combination of good looking bikers and bikes, oh well. It was fun, but very painful, as I haven't been out on a ride yet this season. Course the weather makes it feel further into the season than it is (Season starts April 1st, so we're only 1 month into it). Then we went to Panera's for snack (kinda funny since we just ate at the Hog Roast) and a drink, those I.C. things, very good. I ordered one that I thought wouldn't taste like coffee, it still did, but it was kinda like a mudslide, the more I drank it, the less it tasted like coffee, plus the coldness kinda throws it off. And on the way back home a big group (OK not really big, only about 10 bikes) rode past us. It's so painful to hear those pipes and see the bikes and not be on the back of one.
So, then I went on a walk when I got home. Unfortunately all my shoes/sandals give me blisters. So, I took my sandals off about a half-block from my house (bad idea), got about 6 blocks from home and could barely walk. Of course I had to work Extreme Fighting that night. Which, I don't get why people want to watch that, just people beating the crap out of each other, I don't get it. Course I wasn't inside, so maybe that's part of it, I'm thinking not from what I heard from ushers. So, standing on my blistered feet for 6 hours made them not hurt anymore, I'm still trying to figure that out. It was a very poor turn out, we had about 1100 people in the house, with 90 presold tickets. There were so few people, that almost all the ushers were dismissed early, and there was only 1 person at each door. They cleared out the balcony and told people they could sit on the floor if they wanted too. Got home about 12:30 from that and went to bed.
Sunday, I got to mow the lawn. Then me and pig sat out and enjoyed the sun. But, I decided it was too hot for her (it was in the 80's and I can just imagine how hot that's gotta be in a fur coat), so we went back in, not long after we came out. Because it was so warm (it was 86 in my apartment), I spent the rest of the afternoon, sitting on the floor watching TV. It was just too damn hot to do anything. Today promises to be in the upper 80s again.
Figured out that I have known my favorite hott cop for 10 years today. Decided not to email him about it, cause it might be a little stalkerish. Like I need that. Wow, I feel old.

Red hot

For all you people that like Pizza Hut pizza, stick this on your calendar for next week. Free Slice of Pizza Hut Pizza on May 1st May 1st is National Pizza Day at Pizza Hut..Free slice of Pizza May 1st is National Pizza Day at Pizza Hut They are giving away one slice of pizza (cheese or pepperoni) per personbetween 3 and 5pm.
UGH!!! I'm so stressed (not that you can tell it by looking at me), I have less than $300 in my bank account, my rent is doubling on the 1st of May, my credit card bill is on its way, and I don't get paid for my part time job until after May 1st. I have $10 that's supposed to last me, I don't know how long.
And my list of shit I need to buy keeps getting longer and longer. Found out today, I need new shoes. Apparently the heels in the ones I have now are pretty much gone. I got home from my walk today, took off my shoes, and my sock was bloody, guess I got a blister and rubbed it bloody and open on my walk.
I wish I could just

Way to go, girl!

I just wanna extend a big CONGRATULATIONS to my friend Carrie. I found out today, she's engaged. I'm really happy for her.

Saturday, April 21, 2007

Wow! That much?

So, I was all impressed with myself the other day because I finished my walk in a little over an hour. I tell everyone it's a 2 mile walk, but I never really knew how long it was. Well I googled 'plot a route' today, found this website where you can plot a run, and found out it's 4.53 miles. It never felt like THAT much walking. I'm gonna have to bookmark this site, so next time I wanna know how far I walked, I'll know. I figured google would have something easy like that on their maps site, but I couldn't find anything for an already figured out route.
I think I'm in shock or something, cause I just never figured it was that much.

I wanna blow myself away

Y'all remember when I said this "the thing with the guy I'm hanging out with lately"? I was planning on 'discussing' it with y'all later and then I got distracted (big surprise there, huh?), but it's good cause with other things that have been happening, I'm still confused. So, I'm asking for advice, feel free to post some.
At that time, that week, I was chatting/hanging out with this guy and confused, with new developments I'm still (more) confused.
I took a couple CJ (criminal justice) classes that this guy happened to be in, one last spring, and one last semester. Anyways, I had set up to meet him somewhere for a supper, he happened to be working that night (this was back in Oct?), and forgot about it. Later (a week, I believe), he invited me to ride along with him on one of his work days (he works with the local PD), and I did, that was fun. We were chatting a bit on AIM. Then I graduated (Dec) and I hadn't chatted with him in awhile, sometime in Jan I believe we did a little more chatting on AIM. Speed forward (with chatting on AIM) to April (my mind is so lost on time lately), a Mon, he gets on AIM, we chat for about 4 hours more or less, then he comes over, takes a short tour of my apt, and we chat about 6 hours, we go to supper (both paying for our own), still chatting, and then I go to see his apt, and we continue chatting. And then he takes me home about midnight, I started chatting with him at 10AM, pretty much chatting most of the day.
Tues, he gets on AIM to say he had fun, that was pretty much it for the day. Weds, he calls me around 9PM or so, says he's getting off work, and wonders if he might come over to watch a movie. He does, we watch a movie and talk more. He goes home close to 3AM. I don't believe I talked to him for the rest of the week.
Guess I chatted a little Sat night. Sun (next week) he chats with me on AIM (I have no idea how long, guessing a couple hrs). Tues, he calls wants to get together and watch another movie, due to my having stuff out, I decline, and we chat a little while on the phone, maybe 30 min or so.
Tues (this week), he calls around 1:30PM and wonders if I want to go get something to eat. We go to McD's (see part of earlier post). He goes to work around 2:30PM. I go for my walk (you should all know about my walks by now). See him at the PD on the way back, no chatting (he looked busy). About 15-20 min later, I call him, he says he was gonna chat when he came back out of the PD but I was gone, we chat about 40 (?) minutes. I called him yesterday (Wed) and we chatted for a few min, not too long. Today, he calls about 2:30PM and asks about going to get something to eat. We go to Jimmy Johns (sub place), we're at the counter, chick takes his order, asks for mine. I think nothing of it (I decided to get nothing, cause I have no money, that's getting to be a trend). He gets a cookie with his meal and tells me I gotta eat some of it (of course I did).
Now, I'm sitting here tonight, chatting with Goddess. And I realize that he didn't say anything to the chick about us being separate when she asked what I wanted. Kinda confused about that.
I like him, I've liked him since I first saw him, but figured wouldn't get any further than facebook (online 'community' site) friends (there's a shit load of good looking guys on campus, and a bunch I'm facebook friends that I like, that won't go any further). I don't know if I'm wanting something that's not there, or what. I find myself searching for his truck at the PD parking lot (I do that when I learn what people drive, so not just cause I like someone). When I was done with my walk today, I was outside with my pig, kinda watching, hoping he'd come by. I find I'm happy when he calls (ok I'm happy when anyone calls, but I like talking to him). Am I hoping there's something there that isn't? Maybe. Is there something there? I don't know, that's where you're advice comes into play. I've never liked someone that may have an interest in me. I've been on one date (technically 2, cause there was a time when a guy bought me dinner, but I still/always see it as friends having dinner).
I'm just way confused, anything y'all wanna contribute would be helpful.

Won't let you go

Lesson #4: Don't drink a 12 oz bottle of smirnoff (when you haven't had much to eat all day) and then get in the shower. Makes for an interesting shower. ;)
And apparently my face gets really red when I drink. Who knew?
Also, how come the guys get all the cool shit? I got a free Gilette Fusion in the mail the other day ( a guys' razor), and I've been using it to shave my upper legs, its really great.
And Bones is on, and it's also hard to type :)

I'm selling dirt

Me and Kevin went to McDonald's for lunch yesterday. We're standing at the counter, and my friends orders and the chick behind the counter just ignores me and moves on to the next customer. That was ok, because I'd decided I didn't have any money for anything. Later I remembered they have those cinnamon melt things (those are so damn good), so I go up, same chick at the counter, and I order one of those, a small drink and an order of fries. I told her about the fries 3 times and the chick still didn't hear me. I wasn't too peeved, because that would have been more money, but you'd think the chick could pay a little more attention. I also didn't understand why they had 3 registers, at least 6 people milling around doing little to nothing, and 3 manager type people sitting talking and ONE person running the counter. Not that it was extremely busy, but WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE PEOPLE DOING?
I don't want anyone to think I'm totally out of it since I haven't mentioned the Virginia Tech shootings, yes I've heard of it, over and over again. I'm getting sick of hearing about it. So, I'm not going to discuss it. If you haven't heard of it, you live in a hole. I just wanna ask why the hell these people always have to kill/wound a bunch of people before killing themselves. Why can't they just go and kill themselves? That's all I'm going to say on that.
So, this week (Monday through today), I've been having people deal with the central air conditioning thats going in my apt. (As if I haven't had enough dirt and people in my apt). Anyways, these people barely make the effort to talk to me. I get that they're doing a job, but could we be polite and offer a hello? I can't even get into my bedroom (Ok I can, but I have to slide past a ladder and through lots of dirt), and they just kinda ignore me. It's annoying.
I hope they're done today, my mom said it would be 3 days, so they should be done today, but you never really know. I'm actually looking forward to cleaning my apartment. Yep, you read that right. There's just so much dirt and dust everywhere that it feels gross. Anyone wanna help?

I won't tell no one your name

Since its been warm lately I've been going out on walks again. Well today I went barefoot, apparently I should have started on shorter walks before doint the whole thing barefoot because I now have blisters on the bottom of my feet, including a blood blister on one of them. Oh well, I can handle sneakers until they heal. I also apparently didn't pick my foot up when I was walking and skinned my big toe, that's very painful, its that nice raw skin meets the air pain. Sigh.
Course I'm also showing matching slices on my ankle bone from shaving yesterday. It wasn't even a new shaver blade. I tell ya, something is against me lately.
So, I was watching TV tonight and I had my windows open, I heard some people talking outside, so I wandered over, just to look. There's 2 women standing there talking, one of them has a dog, which is proceeding to dig in our flower garden and eat things. Then they got mad at me for asking them to stop the dog. WHAT THE FUCK?!? Course they decided to move along too, so if the dog was gonna do it again, it wasn't gonna be in my yard.

mmm melted plastic

Two nights of going to bed after midnight and getting up at 7 am are not working for me. Sunday night was my fault, I got caught up in watching TV. I had to watch the Amazing Race, and then Cold Case, and I sorta got sucked into Without A Trace (That seems to happen every week). I wish they would start finding people alive again. It's so much nicer with the happy ending. And then I was taping Drive (new show on FOX), and I watched it afterward. I like it, I was originally just gonna watch it because of a sweet car from one of the commercials, but the story lines are kinda cute: there's the husband racing because his wife was kidnapped by the race people, the guy racing after getting out of prison, the father racing because he's only got a year left to live, the mom racing to get away from her abusive husband (I'm kinda guessing on that, they only hinted at it), Army guy and his wife she wants to win so he doesn't have to go back to Iraq, And of course they all have partners: husband with some chick whose parents were in the race when she was young and died, prison dude with half brother to get back at dad, father with daughter, mom with a chick she was supposed to 'eliminate', and Army guy with wife. It's pretty interesting. So, I was up til about midnight Sunday doing that.
Yesterday, I had to work the Jason Brown concert, he's a new country artist, it was a special thing for FFA. It was supposed to be a short call, we were supposed to be done by 11:30, but in our meeting beforehand, we were told that if he liked the crowd he would play 2 or 3 hours instead of the 90 min, and then at the beginning of the concert he made the announcement that he would stay until he gave everyone an autograph. I love it how people don't think about others. I don't care if you people want an autograph I wanna go home at a decent time. I usually don't mind working that late, but we're usually informed when we call in that we will be working that late, not just because the performer's being an ass (like GnR). Thankfully we didn't have any problems, he played for an hour and 45 minutes, then signed autographs, til I'm guessing we left.
Lessons I've learned:
1. Not to leave plastic on the toaster oven when you're using it as an oven.
2. My smoke detector is in working order
3. Milk becomes chunky after a certain time.
Anyone interested in some chunky milk?

I was woken up shortly after 7 this morning to dream guy riding home from work on his bike. Jackass. I've noticed that he gets annoyed when people do shit that wakes him up (he's on night shift, so sleeps during the day), but its ok for him to ride his Harley when the majority of the population is trying to sleep. Some people are such hypocrites.

Take me back to where the music hit me

So, that new show, Drive. Not too bad. They have some kinda weird story lines but still pretty cool. Even better deal: it's regular time is Mondays 7pm, when i'm not watching anything. Course tomorrow I'll have to tape it as I have to be at work at 8:30, but hey, I can deal.
Also, some shit I learned today, never leave plastic on the top of your toaster oven and then use it as an oven. Oh, and my smoke detector works fine.

You said I was never gonna learn

OK, quick rant before blogger has an outage.
Am I the only one who thinks it's rude to answer your cell when you're out to eat with someone?
Also, anyone remember this question I posted back in November? 58% of the population wished they had this in their car, what is it? It's a microwave

Ice shouldn't burn

Some times I don't even know why I bother. A little while ago I complained because one of the blogs I read dropped me off their links list, well now a comment I left seems to have mysteriously disappeared.
I have a big heart and I don't have a boyfriend, so I care more about my friends (nothing that goes over the line, but I do care if they have shit in their life that upsets them). I'm so sick of people using that against me. First it was the soldier that needed someone to talk to in Kuwait, who decided to ignore me once he got back. Then it's the biker that says he needs a friendly chick to help out his girlfriend, but once I give him advice and I'm guessing he didn't like it, he stopped communication, and the thing with the guy I'm hanging out with lately (ok, I haven't really figured that out yet), and of course online 'friends'. I put that in quotes because we all know people online may or may not be what they say they are. That's the beauty of online. In all the people I've chatted with online (and my blog) I've been truthful. OK, there has been the occasional time when I was pissed that people in chat rooms would IM me about sex, but those are few and far between (mostly because I've stopped going in chat rooms).
I've gotten used to so much shit (people dropping off talking to me, people not keeping their promises), maybe I shouldn't care anymore. I'm just sick of people being asses.

I've been really depressed lately, I think it's because I have nothing to do all day, my parents keep harping on my about my lack of a job, and I don't have anyone to hang out with (all my friends are either not here, or in classes. I'm not complaining about that, classes should come first). Plus it's been cold. When it's warm I go out for a walk, and that brightens me up. So, when I'm stuck at home all day....and the lack of money for food doesn't help. I got paid $14.60 the other day for 2 hours of work a couple weeks ago, that didn't even cover my electric bill. It sucks. My parents think I don't care and that I'm just having fun all day, but I get reminded every time I have to write a check or buy something that I don't have money or a job. Like I need them to rub it in a little more. If I had the money I would be so far away from them. I know I say that all the time, but I really mean it. I'm so sick of them in my life.
I was laughing at myself the other day. I got $10 in the mail and I was excited, that's when you know you're poor. I had to give the gov $56 for my taxes (my dad always said I shouldn't put exact money stuff up here, but I really don't see how it can be against me and I don't give a damn), and I couldn't afford that, my dad paid it. It's nice how I can weasel shit out of him, mom is nice every once in awhile, but I never hold my breath on it.
Speaking of mom and money, she was complaining the other day on the look of my jeans. These are my favorite jeans, well I wore them when I was painting the trim for the bathroom and they have paint splotches on them. Personally I like them, they give them more character. She was complaining that I didn't have any nice jeans. I actually do, I just never wear them, cause I don't have a need for nice jeans. That's the beauty of jeans you can wear them, shit happens to them and they get character. I wear the hell out of my jeans before I get new ones (half of that because they cost too damn much).
I've been on the no money for food diet. I could never be on a real diet, I hate not being able to eat what I want when I want to. I don't know how people do it. Of course, I've been blessed with a great metabolism. Seems like all I eat is junk food, and I'm at my heaviest weight right now (130 pounds). Course when it's warm I go on walks, I know that helps, considering they're about 2 miles long.
And, I'm rambling, sorry people

and the shower curtain saga continues...

Yeah, I'm on my 2nd shower curtain because the first one was too long, with about 4 inches sitting on the shower floor, and I had problems with it in the sides, it wouldn't stick to the sides, and water would come out them. So, mom bought a shower liner (I guess that's the correct name for the plastic thing) with suction cups on the sides, fits perfectly except it's too damn short. Dammit. I'm thinking of putting the first one in, then the suction cup one and then my striped shower curtain in front.

Those people hungry

OK, so I'm watching this new show on NBC, Thank God You're Here, where there are comedians that are thrown into a set they are never seen and they have to improvise with the other people on the set. Now, it's pretty funny except that they give away a piece of plastic "award" and the host has to chat with the comedians before the get into their skit, and the judge chats with them after the skit. If they just cut that all out and only showed the little skits, it would be waay better.
Its been pretty funny so far, I'm surprised my dad hasn't called to see what all the noise (me laughing hysterically) is about. Since his 'entertainment room' is below my living room.

UGH, so I have some fun little chest pain when I breathe (and subsequently when I laugh), it's real fun.
Today, was my I don't give a damn day. I was gonna just sleep the whole damn day, but that is hard. I made it to 9:30, that's AM. Sigh. So, I haven't gotten dressed yet (it's 21:12, 9:12 pm for all you normal people), have been sitting in front of my 2 computers and the tv all damn day.

I got a call from a place that was looking for a secretary (I think?) and they said my background education would help for a position talking with kids at a troubled kids home. (so much for relaying this easy to y'all)

And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

You know, just once I'd love to see someone own up for what they did instead of lying to the cops. I'll hold my breath.
Boston, MA: Officer Mark Sullivan, Officer Joseph Marrero,
Lowell, MA:
You think I was just here for no reason?
There’s two people in the damn van, you buddy and someone else, but you don’t know who through the bottle, what a fucking liar
Sigh, there was this beautiful bike in the background when Officer Coutre was talking to the victims about what happened. Damn, I wish the cameraman had moved off of the cop and on to that bike, cause it was a beauty.
Palm Springs, CA:
They’re using Yahoo! IM’s when chatting with these fucked up people.
I gotta find me some high-powered binoculars like that, think of the things I could see…
I love it how the guy lies but he sticks his actual photo in his IM as his icon, jackass.
Why do they always say “Seriously?” No jackass they want you to lie, how stupid are you?
Brevard Co, FL: Deputy Justin Gould, FTO Brad Bellflower,
Why would you get a yellow Lexus? No normal person gets a car in yellow
“You got weed on your lip” Oh, shit that was funny. Next time, ya might wanna clean off your mouth before you get out of the car. Maybe that’s why he was playing ring-around-the-fuel pumps at the gas station. Idiot.
Drugs up your ass, that’s gotta be comfy. I feel very sorry for the cops that have to reach up people’s asses, you couldn’t pay me enough…
Hamilton County, OH: second hott deputy
Go “Mr. Big Man” flipping off the cops and starting a fight, then he ends up crying. Nothing good comes from drunks.
I know Deputy Gould is from a rerun, but I never gave him an award, and it's my award and my blog, my rules, I can break them whenever I want.
Deputy Justin Gould
Brevard County, FL

So, I saw another commercial for the new show Drive, Goddess was telling me it looks dumb, that’s not the reason I wanna see it. It’s got some sweet ass cars in the commercials, course there’s gotta be a little something more to keep me hooked. Case in point: Supernatural, with their sweet Impala, course the hott guys don’t count against it, or the fact that I like the ‘supernatural’ part of it. Also, Angel drove a nice car in his show.

What are you reading these days?

You know me, I'm a sucker for these meme's, and anything other than thinking about reality right now is a nice bright spot. So, I stole this from Ambulance Driver.

I'm not really into reading books that are big and popular, just like I don't like to watch movies that are really popular (hence the reason I haven't gone to see any of Harry Potter), I don't like to mainstream. It's more fun to be weird and have people look at you and like you because your different.
Also, I have read quite a few books, just not a bunch on this list.

Are you a deer hunter?

So, last night I learned something that pissed me off and upset me so much. I decided that there can't be a God who would do this to someone, and if there is we're gonna have a talk when I die. I need an explanation, I know I'll never understand, but I need someone to try and explain it to me. I've always said, music keeps me sane. It's helped me through so many times, last night I turned it off, I needed something that wasn't in the music, and I couldn't listen. I wanted to just zone out and have someone wake me from it. I just wanted to get away. Borrowing from Sodapop (and probably a number of other people), I give a Fuck Off And Die to God.

You're dead and broken

Stupid, stupid me. I had one damn thing to do today, and I fucked it up. My dad told me to set out the lawnmower and the snowblower, so they could get picked up and tuned (and all that shit, they're storing the snow blower til Oct) at 10 today, I woke up at ten and didn't remember til about 10:30, to which I grabbed a coat slipped my boots on and went outside. So, if they're sitting there all day and don't get taken care of it's all my fault. I'm such an idiot.

In other news, I got two new CDs in the past 2 days, Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson, and Faceless by Godsmack. Funny thing is I knew more of the songs on Breakaway, I've listened to it once since I got it (only the songs I know), but with Faceless (which I received yesterday), I stuck in my CD player and haven't stopped listening to it since (I only knew 3 of the songs). Especially weird cause I'm not really a heavy metal person, I just like it because Yahoo picked out Serenity once and I got hooked on that song.
A couple things I tripped over on my blog readings. Some southern hospitality here. And some cop support here.

So, I'm watching The Amaxing Race tonight (big surprise there huh), anyways I was thinking how sorry I felt for the airline people that have to deal with players on The Amazing Race. There's always at least one team that gets in a bind with the airlines whether its because they can't get on the plane, they're late for a connecting flight (or anything that you run into at an airport). And the people working at the airlines have to deal with them, it just sucks.

Save me from this nothing I've become

I'm so in the dumps lately. I think it has something to do with me not taking my walks since Thurs. I know walking's good for you, but it also lifts my spirits, I know it has something to do with endorphins which make you happy. I don't know, look it up.
Anyways, I didn't take my walk on Thurs or Fri because the electrician was supposed to come at 2, and then I just waited until about 5, hoping he'd still show up. I didn't go out for one yesterday because it rained practically all day. Today, I'm thinking about wandering over to Karli's cause I wanna drop off her b-day present (her b-day was March 7th, I haven't seen her since March 2nd, and she said she didn't want it early).

So, last night I had a great dream, featuring Dream Guy (no nothing sexual, you people have dirty minds). We chatted, something I wish I could do with him all the time. I wish he were a friend, sigh. So, a For Rent sign popped up in front of his duplex this past week, but I think it's for the people on the 2nd floor (or at least that's what I'm telling myself, so I don't freak out). Course I won't really know until Aug 1st (when the leases flip over here).

No post for cops last night. It was an hour of repeats and I went to the student-run fashion show, and I didn't feel like taping an hour of reruns. Also, I've decided to cut back on my statuette awarding. I'm only giving them to people on new eps (sorry Officer Pilutik). I'll still comment on the old eps if I'm watching, but I won't be awarding the statuettes to officers on the old eps.

This is my sink. Once the new top comes in (see previous post), it will go to the edges and cover up the gap of the towel cubby on the left there
My towel cubby. The new countertop will cover that little lip where the plywod meets the wall

See that little gap on the left side of the vanity? That's not supposed to be there. They're ordering a filler strip (a little piece of wood matching the vanity) to stick there and a new counter top to cover up the gap. Also that trim on the bottom (the white between the wood and the floor), my mom finds that really ugly. I don't mind. More pics in the next post
