Hi everybody! How was Thanksgiving?
We got back from Chris's parent's house today...I would have posted earlier, but I had work today, which wasn't that bad. I think Thanksgiving break mellowed everyone out a little bit. Even Jenny, but I still hate her.
Speaking of break, we spent it eating turkey (of course), watching a ton of Mystery Science Theater, and pretty much nothing else. It was wonderful.
I'm unblocking Cat's Meow since he's posting anyway, and being decently nice.

A few things...
One, this site is AWESOME. You send people cheesecake! CHEESECAKE! Now if only it didn't cost quite so much.
Two: Why is this CNN's top science story? WHY?
Cute squirrel though.

Yes, work sucked a TON and Jenny is ACOMPLETEANDTOTALBITCHIHATEHERI
Well. I feel a bit better.
Came home and hit things (Soft things. I'm being good.) then played some Unreal, with Jenny-bot-killing goodness.
Am now in Illustration, about ready to STRANGLE the two people in front of me, who are sitting there playing Yahoo pool and talking loudly. Not to say that I don't screw off in class (case in point: I'm blogging!), but I don't flaunt it. However... earlier they were talking about not knowing how to scan things, which Michael just explained while they ignored him, so I'm going to laugh when they don't know what they're doing.
So, so cranky and down today. I want to throttle the world.
What am I doing wrong???
Got in to work today and everyone was pissy. One of the first things Jenny (wench) said to me as I was filling up a teapot was "You been working here a long time, and still really slow."
Now keep in mind that Jenny is one of the most petty, greedy people working there. She will always give herself the tables that tip well, and she bitches about people behind their backs, so maybe I shouldn't take her comment too personally, but I'm getting so sick and tired of everyone there telling me what a horrible waitress I am. Maybe I am a horrible waitress, but if I'm so inept, god knows why they keep Princess Megan around.
I feel like yelling at all of them, because I'm doing my best. YES, I may screw up sometimes, but I'm TRYING, and this is the best I can do. I always have a good attitude, I'm always friendly to the customers, and if I get a little swamped with tables sometimes, it's because I'm trying to be as helpful as I can.
And I'm scared, because I don't want to get fired.
I know if I do I'll probably have to go back to Boise, and I don't WANT to go back to Boise. It's either that or go on unemployment, because god knows who'd hire me when the longest job I've been able to keep is maybe 5 months. I SUCK
And I get to go back to work at 3:00.
Thank god this is a short week.

Current music = smooth, mellow
Current liqueur = tasty, smooth
Only thing is, I'm supposed to be sleeping.
Yes, liquuuueeeeuuuur, not liquor.
And yes, it's the tiny, tiny bottle of Midori left over from Yukari's birthday.
Tastes like melon! Yay!
Well, I slept in (reasoning behind this being first "I can take the 8:15 bus" then "Well, we mostly work out of the book in Digital Illustration, so I can do it at home, right?"). Anyway, I needed to catch the 10:25 bus to go to Multimedia. This I missed, so it looks like I'm attending one class today. *kicks self* Slacker! SLACKER!
Also, I have to call Yukari because I said I'd help her with photoshop stuff... Maybe we can work on it after class instead of before.
On the plus side, laying in bed and listening to the rain is SO NICE when you know you should be in school.

Yes indeedy. Got to sleep in, drink cocoa, read comic books, snuggle, ALL that good stuff. Today made up for this ENTIRE WEEK being shitty. Work was decent, too.
I could post more, but instead I'm going to go play Warcraft and revel in today being AWESOME.
And for those of you I haven't shown off to already: I HAVE A ONE RING!!!!

Today SUCKED. It sucked SO BAD.
Work sucked, biking to work sucked, and now Chris is freaking out, so being home sucks too.
I just want the world to go away...

Cam picture still applies.
I hate you, Mrs. Fahey. I hate you I hate you I hate you. And I will drop your class, or I will fail it without caring, BUT I WILL FAIL IT WITH STYLE, AND IN DOING SO I WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE A SERIES OF ANNOYANCES AND FRUSTRATIONS.
Such things as "interpretive" reports, and answering quizzes in deep red ink (with lots of spatters) have already come to mind. Help me think of things to do to her if the registrar shuts me down today, okay? Keep in mind that I don't want her to sue me, though. Stapling packets of mustard to the quizzes as answers would be good, too.
Now that that's through with, I think you should all see this.
He hasn't calculated it to carry a coconut yet though.
(What is the capital of Assyria?
Answer: *packet of mustard*)
1. Either Tripod or Blogger (though I suspect tripod) is super retarded today.
2. Poke around here, and I assure you, you'll find something crazy. Like this. Or this. "Warrior Of Love Rainbowman." Wow.

Thank you, John Allison.

In other news: Today sucked, want to make things go smashy.
Tuesday was out to get me, I tell you.
Wenches. *grumble grumble*
Well, I went in and tried to drop Page Layout, only the option wasn't there. Crap, crap, crap. But it might be okay, because I talked to Michael (my photoshop/digital illustration teacher), and he's going to help me try to figure something out. I think a lot of people are frustrated with Fahey. I talked to her and told her I was going to drop, but asked if I could still come to the field trip on Wednesday, and she said sure (YAAAAAY! WEB DESIGN PLACE!), so I'm excited about that.
Erm....now I need to work on my Multimedia homework ^^;;
(Edit) Also: Watch the little NASA people!

Got home from work a bit ago, and have no clue where Chris is...maybe the library. (Update: nope, he was at the computer lab) Anyway, I'm just killing time until I have to go back around 5:00. Biking in the rain sucks!
Have NOT been able to wake up today. My brain's off somewhere, and I'm just moving really slow, it seems. Stopped and got some coffee on the way home from work, so hopefully that'll help.

(I'm just wondering why I feel so all alone
Why I'm a stranger in my own life)
Jump in, let's go
Lay back, enjoy the show
Everybody gets high, everybody gets low
These are the days when anything goes
Every day is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine
I've been living in a sea of anarchy
I've been living on coffee and nicotine
I've been wondering if all the thing I've seen
Were ever real, were ever really happening
I get a little bit closer

I'm very tired. Missed the bus home for lunch, and was thus forced to buy overpriced college cafe food. Came home after photoshop to find Chris asleep, so I napped for about an hour until my counselor called, then talked to her for awhile. Then I poured myself a bowl of corn pops but managed to knock it all on the floor and break the cereal bowl before I even got the milk in. Bah. Swept that up, fixed self a second bowl of corn pops, which was tasty, and am now thinking about going back to sleep. But I need to do laundry...goddamnit. Ah well, it's only 6...I can stay awake long enough to do laundry....right?
In other news: The campaign on Saturday will be conducted in what will henceforth be known as the vigilante entymologist style. One experience point for every ant you kill, two for killing it with style/inflicting the maximum amount of bloody vengeance upon it.
Now I pose a conundrum for you. A riddle, if you will: Why are Corn pops the only cereal that comes with a paper bag lining instead of a plastic lining?
The world may never know. Or care.
God, I'm tired.

I hate Page Layout, I hate Page Layout, I hate Page Layooouuuutttt!!!!
I'm thinking about dropping, because I think I'm failing. We keep having these questions due, and she never tells us when, So I've missed a lot of assignments. And I forgot to turn in a take-home quiz on Monday. A take-home quiz! *kicks self*
All of this stuff is regurgitating stuff that I'm not interested in from the book. I hates it. Grrrrrah!
Three things: this is kind of interesting, and would probably make a good spy movie (picture them sneaking in to steal the helicopter!), this is cool! Veryvery cool! And this is kind of...frightening.
(*update*): and this is both frightening and amusing. Or maybe I'm just sleep deprived.
Sam stopped by last night (ok, 2 am?), and played some Warcraft/Unreal. I ended up sleeping for a few hours, but as far as I know, Chris made it up all night. Although, he was drooping this morning...hope he didn't fall asleep in the 40 minutes of class he still had to kill when I left. That'd be sad...
My eyes keep wanting to close, and I'm HUNGRY.
Promised Yukari I'd come back for photoshop today.
Hope my slacker teacher has something for me.

We're staying up all night!
Which is a bad idea!
I expect you all to be there on Saturday, with the possible exception of Sam. If you are NOT there, then next time we meet I'm either hitting you with a potato repeatedly throughout the evening, or you're buying us all pizza. Or we're feeding you to the ants.
I have jelly! And lemonade IN POUCHES!

Look at earth from outer space
Everyone must find a place
Give me time and give me space
Give me real, don't give me fake
Give me strength, reserve control
Give me heart and give me soul
Give me time give us a kiss
Tell me your own politik
And open up your eyes
Open up your eyes. . .
Give me love over, love over, love over this

Feeling very warm and fuzzy right now...just got home for lunch, fixed a marvelous sandwuch and a cup of cocoa with marshmallows. So nice. I have no obligations until 1:25, when I take the bus back to school, and it feels very wonderful to just be able to sit here by the heater and drink my cocoa. Aaaaahhhh.
It's a nice contrast to the way I was feeling earlier this weekend, which was: clumsy. I'm sort of a clumsy person anyway, and I just had one of those weekends where I looked around and thought "My whole life is clumsy. I don't know what the hell I'm doing with any of this. I'm clumsy at my job, I'm clumsily attending college, even my relationship with Chris was clumsy at first. I never know what the hell I'm doing. I wish I were the kind of person who could go out and do things deliberately instead of fumbling along with my life. I am an eternal fumbler."
I still feel like that's partially true, but I'm feeling better today. I was just kind of mopey this weekend. Oh! And then my debit card got rejected and that was kind of embarrassing -_-;;
Anyway, I'm going to go drink my cocoa and play Neopets before I start moping again.
I have a bear!
Update: And I'm ditching photoshop class!

And away we go...
Well, we're leaving for Eugene any minute now. Just got on to check e-mail and whine about my killer headache, which is my own damn fault for getting drunk last night. Chris/"William"/I made screwdrivers (and various other concoctions) and watched MST3K. And then I messed around on "William's" computer and tried to change things, and at one point ripped a slice out of my toe by running into our laundry basket. Stupid fucker.*
Also: This is veryveryveryveryvery VERY wrong.
Damn you, Sir Mix-a-lot, for starting whatever chain of events led to this monstrosity.
*applies to both me and the laundry basket
Saturday, November 08, 2003
Somewhat cranky today, and I don't know why, since I slept in until 1 (Hey, I'm entitled...no work, no school today). But then I got up and took a cold shower (our hot water still isn't fixed), and then I was trying to talk Chris, and it was going like this:
Me: Let's go do something and get food.
Chris: Wheee! Half-life 2 beta!
And it really shouldn't bother me so much, because it does look like an awesome game, but I don't know. I just feel pissy today, and I want some attention.
So, to sum up this post:
Me: Bitch, bitch, bitch.
Friday, November 07, 2003
Yeahhhh, so I'm not really sure why I'm still awake. Heaven knows I'm not doing anything productive.
It's nice to just be able to do nothing though. Seems like I haven't had much time to just screw around lately.
And actually, I was working on homework earlier. I guess I could go do that some more.
Wanna go hooommmmeee. Not really much for me to do in Page Layout (Nothing I can't do at home or on Monday), but I'm hoping to talk to Yukari after class (girl talk, and putting in a good word for Bryan). She cut her hair! It looks AWESOME, because it's all cute and spiky and different colors and it ROCKS on her! YAAAAAAY! I'm going to see if she wants any of the funky hair dye in our closet at home. We have blue, yellow and red that I mooched off my brother when he shaved his head. Hey, that sort of rhymed.
Anyway, I'm trying to stay awake. I got at best 3 hours of sleep last night, and that's not counting the (at least) 20 minutes I spent just tossing and turning. Got up this morning and tried to get punked up, but didn't really have the energy for it...I feel sloppy and unattractive, and the pair of tights I wore under my pants to stay warm are pinching my hips. I never wear this pair because they're somewhat...flashy, and wearing tights that are just a little too small is really uncomfortable. Oh well, I guess I'll turn them into arm warmers.
Hear that, tights? IT'S THE SCISSORS FOR YOU!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
What, crazy? Me?
Also: Found a random blog I rather like. Think I'll check up on it now and then.
And randomly: I bet my Nationstate is dead....hmmm...

Win some/Lose some
Forgot to mention:
Chris and I are going out of town this weekend (to Eugene to visit his parents, and to see Andrea's play. GO ANDREA!),
Good news: We get to see Andrea's play! And download things! And maybe watch Johnny Depp movies! (Andrea: Can we get The Astronaut's Wife? I still want to/haven't seen it)
Bad news: We will not be here for roleplaying. Or partying, sadly. RP people, please make sure everyone knows? I don't know how many people have the address to/check this blog.
And: Yes, still finishing homework. With luck I may get two, maybe three hours of sleep.
Well, work sucked today. I have days where I rock, and days where I'm the worst waitress in the world. Today was the second. The PMS didn't help. I don't know...I probably would have been okay, but Megan (who was hosting) was late, so I kept getting stuck up at the cash register and on the phone taking orders instead of doing my job and serving people in the restaurant. It pissed me off. A lot. And she kept going and doing her side work instead of packing "to go" orders like she was supposed to. Jessica keeps complaining that Megan is treated like a little princess there, and before I never really believed her, but today I did. Grr.
Anyway, on my way home I treated myself to a Frappuchino, and lingered in Starbucks reading my book. Then I left, and headed home, where a car almost turned right into me. I slammed on my brakes and cursed VERY loudly, because I was less than half a foot away from them, and they just kind of kept driving. ASSHOLES.
I'm pretty sure I had right of way, too. Tell me: if you're at a stoplight, and it turns green, and the car is turning right, but the bike is going straight who goes first? I'm pretty fucking sure it's the bike.
Oh, and did I mention I have homework that was due on Monday (I ditched class and slept because I was cold and tired), which I haven't started yet?
Happy fucking Tuesday.
(Tuesday! It's only Tuesday! *dramatic sigh* Oy.)
Tuesday, November 04, 2003
Okay, I fiddled with the layout some more.
Let's test it, shall we?
Monday, November 03, 2003
Not quite what I expected...
Well, I still have some issues with the new layout. Originally it was going to be all orange, but I decided I didn't want that, and I'm really not sure I like the fish blue. The fish looked much better orange, but I didn't want the entire page to have to be orange, because...ew.
Anyway, I'll work on it. More coffee now.
Guess what! I still have a paper to write!
Well, I'm staying up all night. Time for a new layout.
Lots of homework tonight, for me and Chris.
So we're both freaking out a bit *sigh*
...and I get to wake up at 6:00 am.
Sunday, November 02, 2003
Okay, here's how the weekend went:
Halloween party! Ran around with Jessica, getting alcohol and decorations and whatnot. Then we got Yukari over on the bus from Albany, went to find pumpkins. Alas, couldn't find any pumpkins, so we wound up carving squash and writing "Pumpkin" on said squash with permanent markers. Then we got our costumes on and made brownies and all that... Hell, I don't know, we did a lot of stuff. It's hard to keep this all chronological. Annnyway, two different big groups dropped by, and the evening was generally a success. And the cops didn't get called! Definitely a success. Also, successfully defended Yukari (and myself) from this big guy who was hitting on anything girl-shaped (at that point, only Yukari and I). He asked Yukari to go home with him, but I manage to get her away from him. Did I mention that we found out later he was married? And has (at least one) kid? Uh-huh. Creepy. Well, they finally left and Yukari crashed on our floor. Good times!
Saturday was "recovery" day. Didn't do too much, except for some cleaning. Yukari and I bundled up in a bunch of blankets and watched Ninja Scroll because our house was (and is) fucking freezing. Then Yukari went home, Jessica & John came by and picked up their TV (which they had loaned us for the party), and Brian and Sam stopped by later. Thennnnn we sat around for awhile waiting for you crazy RPers! I mean, come ON, you guys, at least drop us a line if you're not going to be there. We were supposed to wrap this campaign up! Grrrrr.
Anyway, I had just taken a shower (in fucking cold/lukewarm water because our apartment SUCKS. ARGH!), and was reading, and Sam/Bryan/Chris were playing Hexen, and Roman was messing around, and then Mark walks in (sans shoes), so we fixed him up with some tea and blankets and all. As I've said before, our house is open to anybody who needs to crash somewhere. We don't ask questions if you don't want to talk about it, and we take care of you, so everybody keep that in mind, ok?
Watched some Babylon 5, and then it was raining out, so Bryan decided to crash on the floor too.
Got up, Mark and Bryan did dishes, which was awesome... I had said they had to do some if they stayed, but I'd really meant it more as a joke than anything else. Anyway, we fixed some eggs, and Mark made muffins, which was also really cool. Then I went to work, which was okay (I didn't get yelled at), but hell to bike over there. So damn coooollllld! Serving lunch was pretty laid back though, which was cool.
Annnnnd, that's about it.
Wish our goddamn hot water worked. Grrrrrrrr!
Where the fuck is everyone??
We're supposed to be RPing today, remember?
Halloween was awesome, I'll rant more later.
