i want to remind everyone about my holiday cards poll!!! i'm hoping to get started on them this weekend so it would be really helpful if anyone who would like to get a card from would go fill out the poll. ;)

and if you don't celebrate the ritual sacrifice...


personally, i'm debating thai food, pizza, and a ham slice with mac and cheeze that i could make at home. horror movies have been vetoed in favor of either dawsons creek or firefly becuase i have homework to do. and i don't plan on getting dreessed until maybe saturday- PJs are the best!

I so do not want to be at work. It's a beautiful gray day outside. I want to go home, put on my scooby pjs, and cuddle up with my book in front of a fire. I have this awesome hanging fireplace. very 70's. And it's cozy to sit in the pit right in front of it. But, alas, no go. Have to work. Had a fun morning. Had to take some parts out to a customer (guess he didn't have a truck to pick them up with) and while he was unloading the truck I was playing with his puppies. Some form of sheperd. So cute. And so well behaved. Oh my god, i want the little one. And the guy is just giving them away. I want the little one. kind of a runt. i want him. i want him. maybe it was a her, i didn't check the plumbing. :) i really want that puppy. can't have it tho. i have this great dog, missy, she's 22. no new dogs untl she passes. she wouldn't be able to tolerate them. in truth, i can't have any more new pets at all. mom says that the next animal that comes into our house is hers. so no new pets. i really want that puppy tho.

I don't recall updating yesterday. Actually had work to do. Crazy.

Oh, god, I got off work last night and was driving home when my friend, Brenna, calls. She's all "have you heard?" and I'm like "heard what?". "Desi's getting married!" I swear-- if I'd been braking when she told me that I would have hit the car in front of me. Desi is this guy we all went to HS with. Year older then me. He was our guy friend til we got tired of being the ones responsible for keeping the friendship alive. He was kind of guy that if you weren't screwing him he'd forget about you. Ugh! Anyways, at some point we all pretty much went out with or something with him. How he managed that I will never know. And now he's engaged! So the big question becomes WHO IS SHE? not someone we know. and apparently not someone that one of our other friends would have seen him with. I had to tell everyone (basically, I called Mel in Vegas and told her to call when she got off work and wandered around telling mom, James, and C). Ohh-- important fact, Desi is the guy my brother threatened- "if you ever hurt my sister, I'll kill you"- I love James. I really do. Where am I going with this? Have no idea. I just really want to tell everyone cause it is absolutely frightening. and kinda hilarious. oh, well.

What else? Nothing really going on with me. My medical insurance just kicked in. I need to get off my butt and call Kaiser for a dr now. Too lazy to do it today. I need to go a fill on my nails. Too lazy to do that, too. Maybe tomorrow. I'm supposed to do something tomorrow. What was it??? Oh, right, I told mom I'd fold my laundry. Not like I can get to my dresser to put it away. One of the girls is supposed to leave Monday, but she was asking me about trains to LA (there are none, btw, you have to take a bus in Bakersfield over the grapevine). I think that may be what she means when she says leaving. And then she'll be back. I don't know. I've been hybernating in my room a lot lately. Shame on me.

Brenna and James are coming over tonight. We're gonna play the Buffy game. I know, you're all looking at me like I'm crazy. But we love it. So much fun.

What else? Hmm? I need to do christmas cards this weekend. Need addys for people. Have to pester them. And my mom wants to get a tree this weekend. I am very much against this. I don't like getting before the 20th. And that's even too early. I hate putting it up before the 22nd. I do put up lights, tho. Think I'll add that to my list of things to do. I have these realy cool rope lights I bought for my room. One year I put a string of lights up around my room and everyone decided I was turning it into a bordello. Thnk I'll put those lights up, too. And I need to make out my idea list for people's presents. Gotta go by the car parts store, too. My right turn signal is out I think. The blinker on the dash is going crazy. Doesn't that signal that the light is out? And I just found some split ends. Great, now I have to make an appointment for Greg.

On that note, I end this update. Don't want to bore everyone with the crap of today. Can I go home and sit by the fire yet?

God. I feel like it's been forever since I last updated. I hate trying to get online from home. Inevidebly, everytime I get online someone goes to use the phone and I get disconnected. So I have no idea what others have been up to and I have tons to say. I guess I'll just break it down by days.

Wednesday Night-- got home with exactly 2 things that I planned on doing and in a BAD mood. Needed to grade James' exams as he wanted to return them to his students today and I was gonna be gone saturday and sunday. And I needed to make my contributions to the T-day feast before the oven became unavailable. I started working on the tests and Gracie, one of the Korean girls living with us, came and started helping. I'd finish one test and she'd give me the next. It was kinda fun and got me out of my bad mood cuz it made me laugh to have someone to bitch to about all the stupid mistakes the students were making. And then she helped me make my desserts. That was fun too. Now for the true fun of the evening-- my mother said we could invite dad to T-day dinner. So, I did.

Thursday-- spent the early part of the day doing last minute cleaning. And avoiding people. James came over at about noon and took over my TV for football as the Buffy marathon was playing in the livingroom. Didn't matter to me. Dinner was at 4, so about 320 James and I went out front and started tossing around the football. I will never be a quarterback as my arm hurt so bad the next day. After dad showed we all sat down to dinner-- my mother, father, brother, the 3 girls, and Charise. What an odd family I have. It was interesting. To say the least. After dinner we children started our annual tradition of the Buffy game. We played for hours and had tons of fun. I think James has played Risk or D & D to often, though. He startegizes every move. Pretty funny to watch. We got the girls to play, too. And two of my friends, Brenna and Melanie, came over after their T-day dinners to play.

Friday-- I had trouble remembering what I did on friday for a minute. Basically, Melanie came over again. She lives in Vegas and works/school all day long. So C, Melanie, and I marathoned season 7 of Buffy, tryng to get her caught up. We went to dinner at my dad's and had to pick Tessy up at the ranch on the way. Not that it's on the way. The ranch is like 15 miles further out of town then my dad's house, but whatever. Had another turkey dinner with all the trimmings. It was good. Dad, Ananda (his girlfriend), James, Tess, Moira (Ananda's friend), Javier (her husband), Me, Melanie, C, and eventually Quinn. It was fun. We teased Tess for a long time with a game of hiding her stuffed animal from her. Then Mel, C, and I went home to finish watching the eps.

Saturday--- is gonna go on for a long while so I think I make its own post.

I want to start off by saying that I feel great. My mom told me to leave work yesterday and go over to the hospital for "indigent medical care". She said she'd cover me. So I did. But they were rude and said that a) I didn't make enough money to qualify and b) there were no appointments available until febraury. I was like "fuck this!". So I was like where can I go? and she said I'd have to go to a walk-in but they'd want cash. I didn't have cash so I figured I'd have to make some calls. Long story short- I went by my old doctor (haven't seen him in years) and the secretary told me to go to this Urgent Care place and say I was his patient. They saw me in like 5 minutes. The doctor was really nice. And instead of hooking me up with expensive prescriptions, he gave me the pharmecutical samples for what I needed. Feel so good. Whole thing cost me $133 (cuz they gave me a discount for paying the whole thing). Yay! I can kinda hear. And there's no pain. He said my ears were redder then my hair. :)

Stopped by Tessy's school on my way home and ended up taking her to ice cream and out to her horse. Which meant that I stayed out there for like 2 hours cuz I didn't want to leave my 14 year old sister alone in the middle of no-where. Took some pics of her and "Hotty", if I could figure out how to do it, I'd post them. She's all excited about having t-day dinner on friday at my dad's. So cute.

And that brings us to today. Except I have to say one thing about last nights Buffy-- WOW! We were totally into it. And Smallville-- the paint was still wet on those "ancient" symbols. My parents are both into archealogy and anthropology so we grew up on this kind of thing. I think I've seen every indian burial in the continental US and tons of places elsewhere. Bad set people. Do your research. Or risk the scathing comments of viewers like me. (OK, not so much with the scathing, but its the thought that counts, right?)

My bosses dad (who still works here but in a diminished capacity) brought me a box of See's candy. He brought Turkeys for everyone else but I said that we had enough turkey already so he brought me candy. Isn't that sweet?

I have venting and griping to do about people, but that'll have to wait til the lunch hour or this afternoon sometime. Maybe I won't get to it for a while. That'll save everybody the torture of listening to me bitch.

Kris is officially insane. She just found out she's pregnant (waiting for the doctor to confirm it of course) and she's sitting at her desk thining she's getting fatter as the day goes on. So funny.

Work beckons. And I actually do have a stack of things to do. toodles.

I hate that I didn't do any updating this weekend. But more importantly I hate that I had to get out of my pj's this weekend. I felt like crap. Didn't want to do a thing. Succeeded on saturday, but since James came over to do yard work for the big "pickup" on sunday I had to get dressd and achieve stuff too. Wah!

I am happy to report that my ears fel a little better. Mostly just have that "full" feeling. That and the left one's eustachian tube is swollen and gross. That's a good image for lunchtime, right?

Nothing interesting going on with me. I need to talk to my dad and see if it's okay if C joins us for dinner on friday. Turkey dinner at dad's. The many joys of the divorced parents-- multiple T-day dinners. We're gona be hanging out with Melanie (best friend who goes to school in Vegas) on Friday, so she's coming to dinner, but I don't think James remembered to check on C joining us. Tessy will be happy to see them. She is so cute when it comes to my friends. Always wants to hang out with us and stuff. It's weird, suddenly having a little sister.

My deeps thought for today (currently) revolve around the lasagna sitting next to me, waiting to be eaten. I'm off to do just that.

I just made reservations for myself and some friends to have a "girls weekend". Check out the hotel--
I cannot wait!

Now I have to start thinking about christmas presents. I hate shopping. My friends are the absolute worst. We are all the type of people who buy ourselves whatever it is we want/need. Makes it really hard to figure out what to get. I have one friend who loves Snow White, but she's almost snow whited out. And another friend that I just try and get her something weird. I think I bought her a "grow your own heart" type thing last year. (you know, you put it in water and it doubles in size. My sisters easy. When we met I just started buying her Ballerina ornaments. Few more years and she'll have enough for her own tree. It's hard to find pretty ones though. So many dol-type ornaments have ugly faces. What's up with that? Any one have any ideas for a 17 yr old male? He is alway the hardest to hop for and I'm tired of giving him giftcards.

Ack! I hate the holidys. Except for the whole hanging out with friends and family. And the decorating. And the food. Gotta love the food. M- remind me to send you some of my ccokies!

Oh, I completely forgot. Last week I was freaking out cuz my phone died. Well, after I left work, it came back to life. It was a miracle! Praise be! Kidding. But I decided to keep the new one anyways, since the buttons on the old one were sticking. But htis week has been so busy I haven't had a chance to do anything with it. I should bring it into work, seem to have plenty of downtime here.

Anyone ever have rotator cuff surgery? What's it like? My mom tore hers and now they're talking surgery. She is not happy. And, honestly, neither am I. I'm sure that I'm gonna get stuck with driving her around and I just don't have the time/energy for that. Don't get me wrong, I'll do it. Probably without too much whining. But it's just such an inconveniece. Sorry mom.

Oh, well. There goes my lunch hour. Back to the boredom.
