Quote of the Day: ' If I were 6'4" and rock hard, I'd try out too! But I'm 5'9" and chubby, so I just get to watch." - Clint

Today just started out a day for people irritating the hell out of me. First off, there was the coworker who was having a fit about his computer not working that could me heard all the way down the hallway. I offered to fix it. A MONKEY could have fixed it. But no, he decided that he'd rather piss everyone off by yelling down the hallway to get the information he needed. Then, this afternoon I was supposed to finally get my service work for Tau Beta Pi done by collecting the graudation stoles from the people who wanted to give them back for a refund. I sent out emails to them setting a time and asked that if they couldn't make that they notify me, so I wouldn't waste my time. Two out of the six told me they wouldn't be there, so I went over to Tech Hall for an hour this afternoon for the others. Not an damn one of them showed up. I wasted a perfectly good hour of my afternoon sitting in the closest approximation of hell on this earth I can currently envision. *snarl*

But at least it ended well! In order to avoid a Naked Friday I had to do laundry tonight, meaning I was pretty much stuck on campus. I hadn't seen Russell or Clint in a long time, so I meandered over to 608 for a visit. We all chatted for a bit while Clint watched WWE's Tough Enough challenge thingy (a silly show if ever there was), then Russell and I headed over to visit Pat and Jared's apartment. There, I finally got to see the kickass armor Jared inherited for SCA. It's really some nice work and I'm quite jealous. Then I came home, fetched my laundry, talked with Russell for a while longer, and now I'm here, getting ready for bed. It was good to see old friends again. I really enjoyed myself - even if we're just sitting around doing nothing, they're fun to talk to.

I'm tired now, though, so it's off to bed. Woo hoo, sleep!

Quote of the Day: "Have you ever wondered why there are so many dead worlds out there? Let me tell you why. It's because despite the best advice of people who know what they are talking about, other people insist on doing the most massively stupid things." - Galen

Emode is God's gift to bored office workers. I love quizzes and Emode's got them all. Between today and yesterday I've discovered my dog type, my "goddess groove," my cat's true identity, my IQ, that I'm too nice to be naughty, that my true color is brown, and that I'm not really loony. And that's just to name a few. It's addictive and it's all Jen's fault for introducing me to it. ;-) Then, of course, once you get tired of Emode, there's always KillFrog. The Deportation game has to be the funniest damn thing I've seen all week.

Paddling practice starts again today and predictably, it looks like it's about rain. ;-) I haven't been on the lake since the beginning of April. Funny - it hasn't seemed like that long of a time. My roommate, Kristen, was thinking about paddling with us, but that was before she shut and locked her fingers in her car door. Now she has to wait for the multiple cuts and sprains to heal. I think we all need a moment of silence to ponder exactly how one shuts and locks their fingers in their car door.

...

Uhm..yeah. And on that note, I'm going to go get ready for practice.

That is the question ~ Tuesday, May 28, 2002 ~ 8:20 PM

So many decisions, so little time. Todd's playing the PS2 games he bought today, so I'm just farting around on the computer trying to decide whether I should subscribe him to gay porn or goat porn. *evil grin* Sometimes you just gotta be mean for the hell of it. Since I'm on his comp, I could go ahead and accept the subscription, and by tomorrow morning his inbox will be full. Muwahaha. Hmm...maybe.....BOTH.

Actually, I won't do that. Mostly because I don't feel like surfing porn sites to find the subscription info, but also because he's decided to turn off the video games. Oh well, another day, another evil.

*ponder* ~ Tuesday, May 28, 2002 ~ 1:49 PM

The only time I take my foot out of my mouth is to change feet. I keep hoping that one day they'll invent some kind of direct brain-to-brain cable so when I want people to know what I'm thinking I can just pop a plug in their ear instead of messing around trying to explain it verbally. Honestly, I have got to be one of the world's most incompetent people when it comes to telling someone how I feel about something personal. I have a LOT of opinions about how the world should work that I have no trouble voicing (repeatedly), but when someone questions me about my feelings, especially the feelings that fly in the face of logic and persist in remaining inexplicable, some little part of my brain goes into hiding, usually gibbering in terror.

I've pretty much accepted this part of my personality. I tend to stick with the old adage, 'Actions speak louder than words,' and resort to expressing my feelings in what I do and how I do it, rather than trying to lay them out all cut and dried. But still, every now and then (like last night) someone pins me down with questions until I lose all vocal ability and my brain reflexively turns into goo.

Last night at the impromptu Memorial Day cookout Kat, Lauren, and I had bonding time while our respective boyfriends succumbed to the siren song of the PS2. After a few drinks (and several amusing toasts) we meandered outside and there delved into that mysterious phenomenon of 'girl talk.' It was all well and good until during the course of the conversation, Lauren began quizzing me about Todd. I could barely answer her with a coherent sentence. She thought it was funny, but seemed to think it required psychoanalysis. Fortunately the subject was changed shortly thereafter and the focus taken off me, so I was once again able to join in a meaningful conversation. Still, though, it made me start thinking, because I have pretty much surrounded myself with people who make their feelings known on a regular basis and aren't afraid in the least to speak their minds.

*shrug* And there's no conclusion. This is just what's been kind of on my mind since last night. Makes for a really pointless entry, but I promise I'll post something about the weekend later. ;-)

I am victorious! ~ Monday, May 20, 2002 ~ 5:01 PM

Okay, so I'm standing at the counter of our impossibly small kitchen, peacefully mixing up a double batch of orange-dessert-drinky-thingy (something my sis got me hooked on), when suddenly from off to my right I heard what sounded suspiciously like a hate-filled growl. I glanced over at the space where the sink would be were it not hidden under a mountain of dishes, but the sound wasn't repeated and I continued about my business. I finished mixing the dessert stuff and proceeded to scrounge around for the forty or so freezer-safe containers I needed to freeze it all(I did make a double batch). As I reached under the sink for the dishes stashed there, I again heard the growl, this time accompanied by a somewhat disturbing gurgle. Discretion being the better part of valor, I decided I could make do with Tupperware and should leave the sink alone until I could be properly prepared. It wasn't until after making sure the freezer was well stocked with tasty-yet-surprisingly-healthy orange drinky that I felt I could brave what I knew had to be lurking within the depths of our sink. Brandishing a bottle of Ajax, a sponge, and a cross, I began to gingerly move the dishes aside until finally I reached the source of the evil - Ming Lei had once again attempted to wash an entire head of cabbage and half a chicken down the drain. Apparently neither of them were having any of it and had formed an unholy alliance at the drain screen. Once exposed, they surged forth bent on murder and quite possibly world domination, but being the resourceful individual that I am, I was able to beat them into submission. After that, the dishes were a snap.

Well, I just called and found out that indeed, Jessica is alive. I was beginning to wonder. ;-) But no, she's still kicking, if not in exactly the best of health. *hug* Hope you feel better soon, Jess.

Work work work ~ Monday, May 20, 2002 ~ 3:36 PM

I'm still at work. Been here since 7:50 this morning, although I did step out for lunch. I don't know that I really want to be here, but I know that if I don't knock out some of this paperwork, it'll breed during the night and come 8 tomorrow morning, I'll be even more swamped than I am now. Right now I'm just faxing stuff, so I've got a bit of time to mess around online, but my sanity is waning fast. I've pretty much exhausted today's music supply - you can only listen to Poe and Garbage so many times before you start looking for something else. I'll probably head out of here around 4 or 4:30.

At least I didn't have much else to do today. *shrug* If I'm going to be sitting around in front of a compuer, I might as well be making money doing it. Still, at some point I'd like to start working on my new blog layout for my brand new blog. Yep, thanks to Geof, this whole entire mess is about to find a new home over at Club Todder. It'll take a little while to get everything how I want it, but when all is said and done, it'll be a much nicer blog overall. Ooh, and it'll have comments too, so all two of you readers can bitch back. :-)

*grumble* ~ Sunday, May 19, 2002 ~ 3:12 PM

Amazingly enough, when I plan things, they work. When other people plan things, they drop the ball. I have no idea why this is, but it's immensely aggravating. I really was looking forward to going to see Episode II again today with a bunch of friends. Come to find out, I could have, even though I was told last night that plans had been cancelled. Turns out, they were cancelled, but someone forgot to tell half of the people going that little tidbit of information. Still, I can't say I wasn't expecting something like this to happen. People, I may be anti-social, but that's because it's damn near impossible to be social when I can't figure out what the hell is going on.

Today has been pretty weird so far. I have no idea why, but I've just been in a strange mood since I woke up. At least I'm getting stuff accomplished. The massive pile of laundry in my floor is no more and I finally got started packing Sarah's care package. It was meant to be sent months and months ago, but I just never could make it to the post office. Well, now I can, so I'm finally working on it. The initial reason for sending it is long past, but hopefully she'll enjoy it anyway. I'm going to run to the store in a little bit so I'll actually have FOOD here - an amazing concept, really. I have no idea what I'll do after that. *shrug* I'm sure I'll find something.

My Two Cents ~ Saturday, May 18, 2002 ~ 1:18 PM

As of Thursday, May 16, 2002, 10:45 PM, the waiting was over. I finally got to see Episode II: Attack of the Clones along with Geof, Samantha, and Todd. I don't think they were too impressed, but in typical fangirl fashion, I was completely spellbound. That's why I had to wait until today to comment. *grin* That and I wanted at least more than a handful of people to be able to read the following section.

~~~~~~~~~~~~SPOILER WARNING~~~~~~~~~~~~


Well, now we know why Luke's such a whiney little bitch. At least he comes by it honestly. Was I the only one who wanted to tell Anakin to grow up? For that matter, was I the only one wincing at every poorly delivered line between him and Amidala? Of course the delivery may have been an issue with the dialogue itself, but Hayden didn't really seem to possess, well, acting ability. The script was better this time (thank you, Jonathan Hales), but it was still pretty ham handed as far as the lovey-dovey stuff. The whole love thing between Anakin and Padmé was way too forced. I mean, honestly, if MY boyfriend came up to me and said he'd just slaughtered an entire village, not just the criminals, but the innocents too, I think I'd reconsider just where our relationship was going. Mass murderers, while they may look good in long, dark cloaks (as does most anyone), are not exactly considered datable. That aside, there was absolutely no chemistry between Protman and Hayden. Nothing they said or did seemed convincing. Also, subtlety obviously isn't included in the Jedi curriculum - every single Jedi in the movie, save Yoda, approached their situations like a bull in a china shop.

But I still loved the movie. It was PURTY. Of course it wasn't as good as Empire but honestly you can't beat "Luke, I am your father!" Not even with extra appendage-lopping and massive lightsaber battles, although the fight scenes were just gorgeous. *grin* Don't you just know Mace Windu followed up the line "This party is over" with a big resounding "Motherf**kers!" Oh yes, and a Militant Muppet. Of course we all knew Yoda had to have been a badass in his heyday. After all, the pussies didn't survive the Jedi purges. But actually getting to see Yoda kick some ass....that made the entire movie right there. That two minute sequence is what I'm going back for on Sunday. I was also very pleased to see that Jar Jar screen time was held at an absolute minimum, although I'd have been happier if he'd died a gory death. For the most part the humor was actually humorous, aside from a couple really bad groaners. With everything that needed to happen to bring the series to the point it needs to be, I think Lucas did a relatively good job.

Friday Five ~ Friday, May 17, 2002 ~ 10:14 PM

Here it is, yet another Friday Five

1. What shampoo do you use? Herbal Essences. It smells yummy! Unfortunatly, I never seem to find the bottle that has the harem included.

2. Do you use conditioner? What kind? Pantene. It smells good too. :-)

3. When was the last time you got your hair cut? Right before Christmas, but my hair grows really slowly and I'm still mourning those six inches.

4. What styling products do you use? Because my hair has an intense desire to take over the world, it can only be tamed into somewhat docile curls with mousse.

5. What's your worst hair-related experience? I had stick straight hair for almost my entire childhood. I guess my worst hair experience was the spring of my freshman year of high school when I cut my hair short again only to find that without its weight, it was extraordinarily curly and evil. I had no idea what to do with it and just looked silly for quite some time.

I don't know where he finds this stuff, but Sean managed to find yet another amusing website for those of us with too much free time: EmotionEric. Go, browse. I assure you, it's amusing. *grin*

It's good to be back in Huntsville. I started work yesterday and so far it's been okay. Mostly I just sit in front of a comp and enter lab data while faxing about ten million documents to at least twice as many people. I've decided that if I don't take music tomorrow, I'll slip into a coma while entering concrete data. ;-) I like it, though - my coworkers are all pretty cool and it's definitely not a hard job. Just mind numbing after a certain point.

Jen, I'm sorry things are going so badly right now. *hug* No matter what, I'm here for you and you're not alone. If you want to talk, just give me a call or catch me online.

Hmm...Todd just sent me a link to another amusing time-waster. For poodle-toasting fun, just visit Ant City. Hee. Poodle toasting. :-D

Take the What High School Stereotype Are You? quiz, by Angel.

RANT ~ Saturday, May 11, 2002 ~ 8:22 PM

You know what annoys me? Selfishness. Okay, so everyone's a little selfish at times - if we weren't we'd go crazy bending over backwards for everyone else. I can understand occasional selfishness and it's not generally a problem. I'm talking about people who go through their lives without a single thought for anyone else, the way they treat people around them like inferiors, their casual disregard for the feelings of others, their total unwillingness to even try to accommodate other's views and opinions, and the fact that it rarely occurs to them that they should be concerned with these things. That they feel so mistreated and complain so bitterly about how mean everyone is, never realizing that they've never bothered to treat anyone with even a minimal degree of respect. Apparently they believe they're entitled to everything without giving anything in return. And it's annoying as hell.

It's amazing too how these people can manufacture their own world view to justify how they treat others. Some take on the mental role of the poor, mistreated victim. Others simply decide they're superior to everyone else around them. Then others, in their own special way *insert dripping sarcasm*, manage to combine the two. Either way, it's immensely irritating and completely inexcusable.

Honestly, people, how hard is it to just be nice? Or if not nice, at least civil. Not every damn word out of someone's mouth requires a snide comment in return. You're not the only one who has anything important to say. Not everyone will agree with you on everything. These are basic truths in life, so I suggest you get used to them now before people arrive on your doorstep in large numbers with pitchforks and torches. Okay, maybe that's a bit extreme, but people sure as hell won't like you much!

*sigh* It's time for me to go back to Huntsville.

Ahem. End rant.

We've decided not to go out to see Spider-Man tonight. *shrug* I guess I'll see it in Huntsville, assuming I can con people into going. Of course, after Thursday, I'll be too wrapped up in multiple viewings of E2 to care about Spider-Man. ;-)

Hey, people are online! I don't have to be bored anymore! *cheers*

One More Day ~ Saturday, May 11, 2002 ~ 12:02 PM

Today started out with getting up at 7 to drive my car back down to the Toyota dealership to get a MARTA voucher and then driving to the vehicle inspection station to get it tested, then back to Toyota. You see, yesterday when I got home a letter was waiting for me in the mail stating that to get my tags, I had to have the paperwork from the emissions test. Because I bought my car the day it came in, they hadn't done it and forgot to tell me. Instead of calling me, they decided to mail me. I'm just glad that the Hendersonville mail wasn't as slow as it usually is because I would have been long gone to Huntsville.

After that, I went and browsed garage sales with my mom and sister to look for kitchen stuff for EB. She's moving into her first apartment and we were hoping to get lucky again like we did when we found my stuff. After all, I got a whole set of dishes and a knife block. I got sick of it pretty quick, though, so I came home. They're still not back yet.

Tomorrow I head back to Huntsville. I'll be glad to be back doing stuff again. I'm also looking forward to the drive. ;-) Have I mentioned that I really like having my own car?

Oh, and I took another quiz. *grin*

Quiz Mania ~ Friday, May 10, 2002 ~ 9:26 PM

It's Friday night. Where am I? Taking yet another quiz. Quizzes everywhere. It's amazing what you'll do when you're bored. Don't get me wrong, I think quizzes are fun and I've already posted two I've taken. Most of the ones I take are supposed to be somewhat witty and amusing, so I like to share them. Tonight, I am once again bored out of my mind, and Jen was kind enough to point me in the direction of several more. After establishing which Marauder I am (Lupin) and planning my own special method of world domination (which involves space stations and the Pope), I turned to this quiz. My results weren't exactly what I expected, since it turned out to be a relatively serious quiz. ;-) But at least it distracted me for a bit.

Hmm...and I am 7,524 days old. Wow. When you put it like that, Todd really IS an old man. *snickers and runs away to hide*

Totally Random ~ Friday, May 10, 2002 ~ 3:20 PM

1. I want a tail. A big fluffy tail. Preferrably similar to either a fox or a lemure. This has come up a lot recently. Yeah, so shopping would be a kind of aggravating and the fur would get all waterlogged during paddling. Then shampooing and drying it would be kind of awkward. But really, tails are just cool.

2. Forgiving doesn't necessarily mean forgetting...or healing. Even now, things that I thought I was long over can still hurt. Open wounds, you might say. It's amazing what can still strike a nerve.

3. Poptarts have got to be tools of Satan. Or at least a lesser demon. Why else would cardboard look so yummy? With sprinkles, even.

4. People are weird. Period.

5. Fake raspberry smells an awful lot like fake watermelon. Funny how they never seem to get those things right.

5.1. The mystery flavor in the regular Skittles. I have NO idea what it is.

5.2. The mystery flavor website will sear your optical nerve into nonexistance. Don't ask me why I went there.

6. I can't type while someone's talking to me. My brain just derails. I seem to have lost any previous multitasking ability I once had. That's somewhat distressing. Good thing I'll never ever be a receptionist.

7. Hayden Christensen is a girly man. I'm sorry, but while his look might be meant to throw us off, he really doesn't seem to be right for playing a budding Dark Lord of the Sith. Ian McDiarmid - now that's evil.

8. I just found out that Hersheys is making Dark Chocolate Kisses for a limited time. Oh happy day! I must go now and buy.

9. My car is just wonderful. And it's so pretty! I went to visit everyone at the office yesterday and a they all came out to see it. *grin* I also went by the office today to take my mom to lunch. She and I got to talk for an hour or so, which was really nice.

10. What is it with all these parents I keep seeing around? Can't tell their child 'no' because 'it might upset them.' So instead they have spoiled little brats that make my hand itch whenever I get around them. Here's a tip: You're the parents. If your child's upset because you're mad that they did something wrong, that's a good thing! Maybe they won't do it again.

11. What the hell is this "finite math" they make liberal arts majors take? No one really seems to know.

12. I have new glasses. I look like a librarian. I really like them, though. :-) E agrees with me. Whee, I'm a nerd!

13. bite. scratch. hiss?

Okay, I think that's enough of that.

And it's so pretty! ~ Wednesday, May 8, 2002 ~ 4:36 PM

I have a car!!!!! And it's all mine! Well, mine and the bank's. But I have a car! It's a little silver 2002 Corolla and I love it. :-D My dad and I went and picked it up this morning. Yeah yeah yeah, so it's not the greatest car in the world, but it's just right for me. And it's so pretty! I've been running around Hendersonville all afternoon, using every excuse to go out and drive around. :-) It hasn't really sunk in yet that it is indeed MY car, and I keep looking out the window, checking to make sure it really is in the driveway. *sheepish grin* I'm such a silly girl.

So that was the highlight of my day. The morning was spent helping my dad re-caulk a tub in my grandparents' new house around the corner. It's always good to learn these life skills, especially when you learn all kinds of neat tricks that make them so much easier. I figure if it's ever necessary, I'll be able to caulk any bathroom appliance in no time. ;-) I also got a chance to look around the new house and I really like it. I think my grandparents will be happy there. Especially once they realize that they don't have to be afraid any more.

I spent the afternoon driving my mom around town to go shopping. She likes the car, but I'm relatively certain she's convinced I'm going to die on the drive back to Huntsville. *grin* That's one of the problems with having a doctor for a mom. She's seen all the worst-case scenarios and she has a very active imagination. Of course, she's been convinced I was going to die many times before and I'm still kicking, so I figure I must have a pretty good chance. ;-) I don't mind it too much. I figure the day she stops worrying is when I should be concerned.

Of course, now I'm kind of at a loss for things to do. I guess I should call around tomorrow and see who's in town. Of course, I'm going to have to drag my sister to see Spiderman when she gets into town Friday night, but that's pretty much the limit of my plans at the moment. Even though I'm bored, it's kind of nice in a way. I have nothing to worry about and if I get too terribly bored, there's always the six or seven books I've been wanting to read since January. I haven't had a break like this in months and I'm liking it!

All in all, this has been a really good week so far. I'm a happy girl!!!! And I have a car!

And so ends Spring 2002 ~ Saturday, May 4, 2002 ~ 3:06 PM

Without a doubt, this past semester has been one of the most eventful of my entire stay here in Huntsville. Looking back on the last three months, I spent a lot of that time being miserable, but there were also some really wonderful experiences. And I think for the most part, I did the best I could. There are definitely things I'd change, but I know I did the best I could at the time and that in the end everything worked out. Most of all, I'm just relieved it's over with!

I'm headed home for the break on Monday. Todd has an errand to run in Nashville, so he offered to drop me off in Hendersonville. I'm looking forward to seeing my parents. We're going to go car shopping while I'm home so I can figure out which car I want to buy. Assuming all goes as planned, I'll be coming back to Huntsville on my own! I'm also hoping to see Kimberly and maybe Sarah F. while I'm home. Jen, I wish I could see you too! I'll definitely have to call you soon. You're right - we haven't talked in forever!

It's dead quiet here. As soon as finals were over, everyone scattered, like rats deserting a sinking ship. Over half of the Southeast campus population is gone for the summer. Almost all of my friends have moved off campus. Jessica and Clint are the only two exceptions. I think Jessica and I are going to start apartment hunting after we've settled in for the semester. I've already found a couple places for us to check out.

At least I've been somewhat productive today (as opposed to yesterday). I've already cleaned out most of my school papers from my bookshelf. I did a little laundry to tide me over until Monday. I wrote my letter to the provost asking for credit in my STARS class (since they've decided not to give me any because they screwed up and left me on the waitlist until it expired). I played around some with the web page for UAH's trip to the NCCC. I started on a new sketch in Photoshop. It's not very good, but it's fun. I finally got around to posting pics from the semester on my site. Now I'm actually updating my blog, something several other people ought to do. ;-) See, I've been productive! Go me!

Anyways, I'm going to go clean up a little more. Right now, my bed looks like a filing cabinet exploded all over it. As this interferes with my being lazy by sitting in bed and reading the rest of the day, it is a situation which simply cannot be tolerated. ;-)

Michelle Branch

So I'm a little left of center
I'm a little out of tune
Some say I'm paranormal
So I just bend their spoon
Who wants to be ordinary
In a crazy, mixed-up world
I don't care what they're sayin'
As long as I'm your girl

Hey, you are on my side
And they just roll their eyes

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
You get me

So what if I see the sunshine
In the pouring rain
Some people think I'm crazy
But you say it's okay
You've seen my secret garden
Where all of my flowers grow
In my imagination
Anything goes

I, I am all you want
And they, they just read me wrong

You get me
When nobody understands
You come and hold my hand, baby
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
Still you want me all the time
Yeah, you do
'Cause you get me

Hey, you are on my side
They, they just roll their eyes

'Cause you get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance
You get me
When none of the pieces fit
You make sense of it
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still I want you all the time
Yeah, I do
'Cause you get me
