The Steroid Sock

Okay, so tonight we had the much anticipated Bay Rama Fishfly Festival fireworks! Woot. I love fireworks, I swear, I'm really like 4 years old on the inside. Oh, the other day, I went to the doctor's office to get all of my prescriptions renewed, and to get a new one... or two... I wound up with five all together. I finally got something that should clear up the crazy eczema on my hands and feet. So now I can say that I'm on steriods. Scary. Anyhoo, I'm supposed to use the super strength steriods only on one of my feet, as only one of them is threatening to fall off. This does pose a problem, as I don't want to go barefoot once I have my steroids on... who knows what it can do to my bed... and if it touches any other part of my skin, it could cause stretch marks. And I don't want to ruin a pair of socks, by having one laced in steroid cream twice a day for a few days, so I came up with a solution. I went in my dresser drawer to find an unmatched sock, and would you believe it, I did! This pink and white sock is duely named... the steroid sock. Awkward. I don't believe that I've ever only put on one sock and kept it that way before. Hmm. Okay, so I have some issues.

I'm listening to Marky Mark now...

I wonder if Pierre would eat a fishfly. Hmm.

For What It's Worth, It Was Worth All The While

So I got a fish about a week ago. I've decided to name him Pierre. He's a red Beta. Love it. Oh! I found some 100 percent pomegranate juice at Kroger today. It's as good as POM, but its at a much better price. While I want to be loyal to POM, I can't afford it.

I just figured out how to do a screen capture on my computer. I'm lame. But now I'm kinda excited.

OH oh oh oh oh oh! I never did do an update regarding IKEA. Well, I went with Coop last week (I think it was last week anyways, everything is running together) and it was amazing. Absofuckinglutely amazing. I was way too excited. There were so many things I wanted to buy, but I ended up buying a hot pink lamp and a pillowcase for an awkwardly shaped pillow I have. It's good.

I think I need to change back to my Volcom purse, this one that I bought at Target is too big and I can never find my cell phone when it rings. AND it sorta ripped on the inside, so stuff gets stuck in the lining. Whatev.

So here are the things I need to do asap:

-Change the music on my mp3 player
-Call Jill to see when the party is
-Plan a Rocky party
-Finish cleaning my room
-Did I say finish cleaning my room?
-Sell back some books
-Go to bed

Oh, and anyone interested in a Rocky party should get a hold of me, because I need to find a date that will work. I've been getting a lot of people asking about one though, so woot! Leave me some supa love.

So I haven't done a real post in a while

Ok, so I started this post about 1 1/2 hour ago... then I got side tracked. Nice. So lately I've been working a lot at the Village & working out @ Powerhouse with Coop. I love me some elliptical. Oh, I ran into Carrie Berglud the other day, that was pretty cool, as I haven't seen her since I was about 10 years old.

This past week has been eventful, I've worked a total of 38 hours since Thursday... so when I say eventful, I mean long. But same thing right? Anyways, I'm totally getting sick of one of my supervisors, who will remain nameless, incase he google's his name or something. He completely bitched at me all night last night for random shit, then accused Scott and I of being too happy, saying that he got a complaint from a resident. What the hell is that? We just like to have fun at work, its not like we're inappropriate within earshot of the residents. Then when we were cleaning up the dishroom, he yelled @ me for getting the clean floors wet, because, you know, water doesn't evaporate, then he accused me of trying to hide the dirty-ness of the sink drain under a bus tub. I will have you know that I've been doing my job for more than 2 years and I know how to clean a fucking sink. Oh, and he said it really smartassed too, like I was trying to pull the wool over his eyes. Maybe if he had opened them, he would have realized that I wasn't even finished cleaning my area yet. Gah. Oh, the angry feelings.

Today was much less eventful, I was just on salads. I made some jello & pudding. Sweet. Then after work, I came home and sat on a chair and fell asleep for about 2 hours... and drooled on the chair. Amazing. Then Coop came over & we went to the park. We ended up sitting under the pavillion because that was the only place that the fishflies weren't wreaking havoc on. They're like locusts, causing great destruction in their path. I will take some pictures this year, so that people who aren't from the New Baltimore area can see just what they do to the downtown area. They only live for 24 hours in their adult stage, and in that 24 hours, they enjoy attaching themselves to buildings. If you leave your lights on at night, your house will be covered in them the next day. I wish I would have brought my camera to the park today, it was ridiculous, the are was thick with them. Oh, and if you happen to drive through a pile of them on the road, your car will slide. And when they're stepped on/driven over, they POP. But the best part is the smell, by far. This little beasts smell like fish. Shocker, right? Yeah, they make the city stink of fish. So why do we have a festival celebrating them? I guess the world will never know.

Oh, back to today, Coop & I went to the park, then after we were in the pavillion for a while, it started to down pour like whoa. Then the thunder & lightening came. Too bad I didn't have the key for the enclosed pavillion with me, that could have been handy. So we went over to the enclosed pavillion anyways, and on the way there, we got completely drenched. Then my dad called all worried & he came to pick us up. Sweet. So we sat @ home and made fun of people's myspace pictures. What a day. Now I'm off to bed.

I wanna sleep... NOW

So I've gone into a fit of organizing my bedroom... finally. It's good fun. Eh. I still can't stop watching The OC. Why is that show so addicting? It's not like it's anything like my life is or ever will be. Whatev.

I'm outtie for now. Laters.

Here we come, right back where we started from

C-Span & The OC

So, I'm procrastinating. I wanna straighten my room. But I'm in bed.

I talked Coop into going to the gym with me @ 8:00... in the morning. Did I mention morning? Well...damn, I don't have time during the rest of the day to go, I start working @ the Rec tomorrow at 10:00, then I have school @ 6:00. Hmm. It's gonna be a long summer.

Anyhoo, I went over to Steph's today & we went swimming. Sweet. I almost got some color. But not really. I'll probably be bright red tomorrow.

Okay, I need to go to sleep now, waking up in 6.5 hours.

Dear Mr. President

Currently listening to: Dear Mr. President by Pink
Currently reading: Love, Ellen by Betty DeGeneres

I just wanted to plug Pink's song "Dear Mr. President" because I just heard it and I love it. Very anti-Bush, so don't listen if you like him... Actually, do listen if you like him. Here's a video of the song being performed as well. Later.

OK, you can stand next to me as long as you don't talk about the temperature.

Currently listening to: You're Beautiful by James Blunt
Currently reading: Love, Ellen by Betty DeGeneres

So I'm currently obsessed with going to Barnes & Noble before class to read for an hour. Love it. It's like an overpriced, loud library. But whatever, they have more books that are suited to my tastes, ie, contemporary non-fiction. I just started Betty DeGeneres's (Ellen's mom) book, as I didn't know what to read & I, like most people, like me some Ellen. No, still not gay. Anyways, its a really good book so far, pretty much about Betty's life, not just Ellen-centric.

I had an exam in polysci today. Wasn't too bad, but I'm sure I didn't get an A, as I completely bs-ed the essay. But I need exactly a C- to get the credit in the class, as the grade doesn't transfer, so I'm not putting any extra effort into it, as I have better things to do with my life, ie... live it. Pretty sure I got drunk dialed last night. Good times.

I'm looking forward to putting some money in the bank. Fucking bills suck. Oh, and my cell phone completely and utterly died the other day, so I had to get a "refurbished one" from the Verizon store, but luckily, my parents paid for it because it was only $50. I got lucky, seemingly everything is going wrong right now & I end up having to pay. One of the spokes in my bike tire broke and the entire rim bent and now my dad is making me wear a HELMET because he wants everyone to make fun of me. It's not like I've fallen off my bike in the last, I don't know, ten years. But I say that now, and one day I'll be saved by a helmet, you watch. Gah.

Okay, going to bed now. Tired as all heck and I have to wake up in approximately 5 hours for the Village. Laters.
