The Best Quote I've Ever Heard

"She thinks the world revolves around her vagina." -- Cat (About someone else)

Hmm... recap

Currently listening to: Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall
Currently reading: Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit

Ok, so I've been away from a reliable internet source for about 2 weeks... and my life has been very hectic. About 2 Thursdays ago, my mom, my dad and I all woke up at about 3:45 am. Fifteen minutes later, we got a phone call that my brother was in the emergency room. Isn't it weird that we were still awake??? I thought so too, it was eerie, to say the least. So I ran upstairs and put on the nearest bit of clothing, which happened to be my work uniform, as I was supposed to be to work in a few hours time. I called work and left the most ridiculous message, I couldn't form sentences properly, that's for sure. It was a jumbled mess. We got to the hospital just after he was taken into surgery, turns out he needed an emergency appendectomy. Scary shit. We sat there with Becky and eventually dad's ex-wife and her new husband. It was weird, I think Jason's entire bloodline was there. Dad amused himself by going into the stairwell and farting so that the noise reverberated off the walls. Anyways, he woke up a few hours later and it was so sad, it made me cry, but I didn't let him see. I called work at some point and talked to my boss, who actually got some words out of my message. I = not in trouble. I stayed with Jason until 8pm, then Becky & I went to get some dinner, then back to their place to sleep. We went back to the hospital the next day for about 5 hours, then Jake was discharged. Awesome. I went home & slept for a day, then went to work the next day. Then I went right over to my bro's to make sure he was okay and I hung out with him for a few hours, then went home to sleep for work the next morning.

Gah. Then a few days later we had a little miracle. My mom found Woody. After two months, she found him in the neighbor's basement, practically starved to death, but he's okay now. That pic is from my cell phone, so it's not top quality or anything, but you can kinda see how skinny he is. Awww. He's a much nicer cat now, he actually sleeps with me in my bed... he craves my attention ;). I love it. I'm so happy we found him, I really thought he was dead. I still can't believe how skinny he is, its ridiculous, he was a fat little cat.

Recently, I've discovered a few things. The TV show Weeds and the musical genius of the Pet Shop Boys. Good stuff. Oh and Ollie & Woody are very surprised by each other's presence. When we last had Woody, we definitely didn't have a dog and now he's like "Whoa bitch, where'd this huge oaf come from and why is it licking my anus?" Gonna go cuddle with the kitty.

Suddenly I see...

I finally got my computer back today :) It's weird having it here, I'm not really using it. I guess this means that I'll be posting semi-regularly again.

I've had a long week, I'll blog when I'm more awake :)

I love Sacha Baron Cohen

He had the most amazing speech for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical Or Comedy @ the Golden Globes:

“I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press. And I just want to say that this movie was a life-changing experience. I saw some amazing, beautiful, invigorating parts of America. But I saw some dark parts of America, an ugly side of America. A side of America that rarely sees the light of day.

I refer, of course, to the anus and testicles of my co-star, Ken Davitian.

Ken, when I was in that scene and I stared down and saw your two wrinkled golden globes on my chin, I thought to myself, ‘I better win a bloody award for this.’

And then when my 300-pound co-star decided to sit on my face and squeeze the oxygen from my lungs, I was faced with a choice: Death or to breathe in the air that had been trapped in a small pocket between his buttocks for 30 years.

Kenneth, if it was not for that rancid bubble, I would not be here today.

The Golden Globes were pretty good last night, I'm really happy that America Ferrara won for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series - Musical Or Comedy, she's awesome.

Oy, I have nothing to post about right now. I'm having a really hard time dealing with people at work anymore, especially the people who don't do their jobs, but I digress, I need the money.

I've got nothing to post about, but I did sleep for about 20 hours in the last 24 hours. That's amazing.

Thursday, January 11, 2007


So I've been away from my computer for two days now :(. I took it in to Best Buy the other day and I should be getting it back before I go to NZ, but one never knows. Good news is that if I have to get one more thing fixed on it, I get a brand new computer! I'm sure something will go wrong in the next year and a half... I hope something will go wrong in the next year and a half.

Anyways, I'm sure that I won't be blogging or online much in the next month, as my parents computers are super slow and annoying to work on.

I really have nothing to blog about, so I'm out for now.

Midnight milk run

I would like what kind of mental mind-fuck it takes to think it is 2:00am when it is really 5 or 6am... Obviously you read my previous post, which I would delete, but I have this policy about not deleting blog posts... Too bad. Anyways, yeah, I'm really not sure how I managed to stay up that late without realizing it. I finally went to sleep around 7 this morning. Then my little doggie decided that I'm not allowed to sleep for increments of more than 2 hours, as I was woken up every so often. I finally stayed awake around 1:30pm. There is a gap of time from 1:30pm and 2:45pm that I cannot recall for the life of me... then I took Ollie to the vet to get her sutures out. Fun times.

To Do List...
1) Confirm Airline Tickets...
2) Figure out how to do #1
3) Take my laptop to Best Buy so they can fix the internet port
4) Decide whether or not to get the extended warranty for my video camera... they only offer a 4 year one, but it is around $100. I'm poooooooor...
5) Go to bed at a decent time tonight... this morning

Something I've realized... so even though I don't have ADD or anything, I think I've got a ridiculously low functioning attention span. Why? Well, I just realized that I have at least six different things going on on my computer right now, my task bar is completely full. To further prove this, in the middle of writing this last paragraph, I stopped for about a minute and a half because I got distracted by a palm tree in my room. Who has palm trees in their room? Besides me. Speaking of my room, I swear, you need a passport to enter it, I've got some of the most random stuff I have ever seen, including but not limited to: a mannequin head, a palm tree, a globe pencil sharpener and at least 17 pillows. How do I accumulate all of this nonsense...

The cool kids stay up until the ass crack of dawn... I thought it was maybe 2:00am... but no, it's actually 5:11am. I got sucked into a pointless movie. And my muscles hurt from being awake so long. Anyways, tonight at work was really weird, I was the only girl there on the 4:30 shift, I was totally out numbered. It wasn't bad or anything, I didn't have to work with any jerks, but I don't think I've ever worked with so many of the guys before. I'm pretty sure I would continue rambling if I let myself, because I'm so tired. Oh jeez.

Things I hate...

The electoral college. I absolutely hate the electoral college. Why can we not just go by the popular vote? If we could just do that, we'd have an actual president, instead of this little bitch we like to call Bush. Doesn't it make sense that the popular vote should elect the president, it is the people voting, after all. Ack. See what talking about presidents with Kent does? I'm all fired up.

The "ph" letter combination masquerading as the sound "f". While we're on that, I've had enough of the silent k, p, gh & t. What's worse? The "gh" trying to be the "f" sound... as if "ph" isn't bad enough. How do we expect people to learn English when we make these ridiculous rules? Check out the petition. SIGN IT.

Interpretations of the Bible. I'm not an avid reader of the Bible, nor am I remotely religious, but I do know that the Bible is, in its nature, a book of stories. If people want to believe in it, that is a personal choice, but do not impose that on me & mine. And do not use it to condemn or attack. That's just lame.


Global Warming.

The last two are pretty self explanatory. I'm just a dork.

Unlike other countries, Britain has people of both genders

Ok so my obsession with Little Britain is growing. Here's the first episode:
Part 1:

Part 2:

Part 3:

I made Kent watch it... hopefully he'll share in my love for it :)

Best. Morning. Ever.

So I just had the most amazing morning. Why? I paid off everything for New Zealand! I paid AustraLearn in excess of $11,000, then I went and bought my plane tickets, three in all, and I didn't buy a return flight yet, just to be safe. I had to buy a ticket to LAX, then to Auckland, then to Christchurch. Lame. Anyways, I'm good to go. Now I nap.

A long day...

Today seemed like the never-ending day. First, I woke up around 9:30 to go see a movie with Cat @ 10:40. We saw The Holiday, which I really liked, it was cute. Then we had to run back to my house so she could pick up the DVDs that I burned for her. While home, I realized that Ollie tried to eat our Christmas Tree. That little bitch, she broke the Christmas pickle. Then I took Ollie with me to drop Cat off @ home. Quite soon after that, Scott called, as today was his lesson on how to drive stick. He did pretty well, there were only one or two white knuckle moments. Then I went right to Panera to meet Andy for an early dinner. Good times. Then I came home, put on pajamas and look at me now, I'm in bed and it's only 6:30... Lame. But I feel like absolute crap, so that is a contributing factor, as well as the fact that I have to work in the morning.

I love Little Britain...

Sooooo work today was alright, nothing special, just your friendly groping... I got pinched in the butt by a resident today... funny thing is, she's not one of the crazies. Whatev. Anyways, I found out that one of the guys I work with is dating Megan Leech. Love it. I've decided that I like working with the people that I worked with tonight, it was good fun, it was Scott, Rachelle, Dana & Dan. Oh oh oh and Courtney got engaged, I'm so happy for her! Her ring is amazing.

Going to see The Holiday tomorrow morning with Cat. You wonder why I'm going in the morning? It's a four dollar show. Sad thing is, that's now cheaper than it is to go and rent a video from Blockbuster. Lame. Okay, I'm going to bed so I can wake up by nine-thirty.

Another test run

This one is a test run of everything; my camera & all the video blogging things I've been trying to figure out. Not gonna lie, my video is super random, but I needed something. It's captioned for your viewing pleasure.

Who uses the semicolon...

Currently listening to: Wasted by L.P.
Currently reading: The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler

So can I just say I had the worst day at work ever. Well I did. I mean it could have been okay, but Steve was there and he ruined lives. First off, we were three people short when I got in, right @ 6:15. Luckily, Tom was on stock, so we just put him on a regular job. Niki was supposed to be our supervisor, but she called in sick, so Steve came in. Fuck. Anyways, somehow Steve expected me to be able to do 2 jobs at once. It would have been fine if I was on two jobs that somehow complemented each other. Mine, however, did not. I was supposed to be doing dishes, setting up mats, putting away dishes and all the while set up both stations with water, bibs, washcloths, coffee, tea and steam tables. Well fuck me. Ok, don't. Anyways, somehow I succeeded. Although I almost threw up at the stations.

Side note, I love Kathy Griffin.

Anyways, back to the day from hell. So then Steve called some guy in that I've only met once. He doesn't know anything. So after our break, I pretty much told Steve how to do his job and everything worked out well. So I went on desserts and picked up the slack that Steve was supposed be doing all day. Thankfully, most of the people I work with understand this and we got out only a little bit late.

Then I went to Best Buy to exchange my camera, as I really don't like the one that I got. I got one that was slightly more expensive. Eventually, when I figure out how to use it, I'll post some video up here. Awesome.

Too bad I have to work today, there's a Top Chef marathon on today and I've never seen that show, but I think it's something I think I could get addicted to. Hmm... thank God for Tivo.

Oh Lately It's So Quiet

Currently listening to: Get Over It by OK GO

Oh shit I'm tired. I think I've slept 4 out of the last 36 hours. Maybe. That's when I was a cranky bitch this morning at work... that and I feel like I might be dying of the flu. Anyways, I apologize to those in my warpath, namely Scotty.

New Years. So my resolutions are as follows:
(1)Be less of a fat kid
(2)Learn how to control my temper and direct that anger into better areas :)
(3)Try not to fuck up the study abroad stuff
(4)End global warming...

That's about it. Last night was fun, although I had a hell of a time trying to stay awake. Work today was okay as well, just long. I really need to figure out how to use my video camera. Stat.

I can't believe it's 2007. I'm going to be 20 this year...
