And then it was over.

Here's an idea, let's throw a little christmas party 2 days after we start moving into a new apartment. We'll watch christmas movies and play board games. Yeah, that'll be fun. Of course it will.

Well actually, you'll be heating the turkey and gravy and cleaning and all that girly kitchen-stuff while I sit on the couch with my friends and watch Conan the Barbarian. Sure, half our possessions are still at the house across town, why do you ask? Yeah, that'll be fun.

I knew I got married for a reason.

Best Christmas Ever.

Move 'Em Out

Last night I bought Bridge to Terabithia. I hadn't read it since I was a kid, and the movie is coming out soon. I ended up staying awake until 330am to finish reading it. Made me cry. Again.

We picked up the apartment keys this morning and checked it out. Clean and pretty. I went home and took apart my bed. Then we waited around the house for our Movers to show up. It was just a few guys Hubby knows with a truck. After a whirlwind 2 hours or so we had moved alot more stuff than I had planned. Those guys were really helpful, and even got our washer and dryer moved. We thought we were going to have to hire someone with a dollie and a ramp. Thanks guys!

I'm going to spend a few hours here tonight sorting things. Most of the small stuff still needs moved, and most of the dishes are dirty. Must.Only.Move.Clean.Dishes.

Anyway, we didn't call the cable company yet, so since its the holidays I don't know when we will get internet and cable tv in the apartment. Until then I'll be online only when I can sit at the house.

Party Creed

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-aholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have SOME standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Reread tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner.

Remember this motto to live by:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

2007 is the year I decided to make things about ME!

It was the year of fire, (okay I really hope not)
the year of destruction, (same)
the year we took back what was ours. (MINE!)

It was the year of rebirth, (of myself)
the year of great sadness, (Hope Not)
the year of pain,
(Hope Not)
and the year of joy. (hAPPY hAPPY jOY jOY!)

It was a new age. (Year 1 Post-AF [1PAF])

It was the end of history. (YUP)

It was the year everything changed. (For the better)

I Smell Bad

I just got back from running a bit, so I smell kinda funky.
Thought you should know.

Traci, I'll see you tomorrow probably around noon. Yay!

We put the deposit on a new apartment yesterday. It is very nice, and we move in next Saturday. Its going to be a busy few weeks. We decided to not transfer our land line, but to cancel it. We are going tonight to get cellphones. The cheapest phones I can get. I hate cellphones. Help me please.

First, after a quick shower, I'm off to the post office to send out my hair clippings and a box I really meant to send off a few months ago. Seriously, who puts me in charge of stuff, and what drugs are they on?

Speaking of being on drugs, I stopped taking the Vicadin and Ibuprophin they gave me for my gums. I think it was making me feel quesy, and my gums don't hurt that bad now. They did hurt a bit yesterday after he took the stitches out. Okay, alot of hurting, but I can take it. There are only a few pills left anyway, but I can take them if it starts hurting for some reason.

Oh, even though I ran today, it wasn't for my test. The only female who could measure my waist went home sick today, so I put off my leave 2 days for nothing. I have to test next Thursday, after I've been on leave (read: not exercising) for a week.

:( darn it all to heck :(

My Current Mood Is:

Tired and Excited:

I returned from my visit to Traci with no pictures of a beautiful baby boy. Everyone is still waiting with bated breath for labor to begin. It was still a fun time visiting with her and walking the mall a half dozen times. I do have a bunch of photos of their little girl, which I think I will print up and send after we have our apartment set up.

Thirsty, Tired, Hungry, Sore from Tooth to Toe:

I had a dental checkup today. Everything was fine except that annoying nub thingey of tissue behind my two fronts. I got another lovely shot in the roof of my mouth, some knifework, and Nubby was gone. I took half a Vicadin when I got back to work because I only had two left.

Then I almost had to reschedule my PT test for the new year, because PT was cancelled for the week. The PT folks and I decided I needed to take my test today anyway before I became overdue. It was just me and the track for 17 minutes and 13 seconds. It was just enough to pass with a 30 inch waist (why am I telling the internet that?!), 52 situps, and 19 pushups.

Excited, Busy, Lazy, Overwhelmed:

This shall be the one and only time Michael can say he was right and I was wrong about $omething Important. I thought our lease at the house was up at the end of January. I insisted we secure an apartment during the holidays so we could move without taking leave from work. Then I looked at the lease and saw that it actually ends in February. Him Right, Me Wrong. I talked to the landlord today though, and he seemed fine with us leaving early and only paying up to next month. He's also buying our fridge, since we don't need it in the new place. We sign the lease today and move in on Saturday. Woohoo!

Before and After...

Before and After...

The second picture is after I chopped off the length to donate to Locks of Love, but before I went to the stylist. Here's a couple pics of me chopping my hair off:

And now, I will show you the absolute best haircut I've ever had, which I love, and which only cost me ten dollars:

I don't like this picture as much. Not because of the hair, but because I look awkward. Is that how you spell awkward, or is it akward, or ackward, or more meds for me? I dunno, but here is a picture for Carol.

I have the Hiccups again

So, its 1am and I am NOT tired at all. I think I had 3 or 4 cups of coffee at IHOP about an hour ago. I'm gonna try to sleep anyway, but we'll see how that works out.

Anywhoo, we saw The Holiday tonight. It is, by far, the best movie I've seen lately. Not to say that The Fountain wasn't good, but this one made me laugh out loud, literally. That doesn't happen much.

Ohhh! Also I've noticed alot of the books I loved as a kid are being made into movies: Charlottes' Web, Bridge to Tarabithia, and How to Eat Fried Worms. We saw the preview for Bridge to Tarabithia tonight, and I'm really excited. I remember that was the first book that I cried at, or maybe it was Where the Red Fern Grows. Serious growing-up books. I read up to 10 books a week in the 6th grade, walking back and forth from the tiny public library. Because read well above my grade level I was exposed to certain mature subjects. I think it was really important in shaping me emotionally at that time, that my reading wasn't censored at all. I really regret that I havn't been able to read much in the last few years. I doubt I've read 10 books in the last year. I don't really forsee having any time to read soon either.

Linking through the pain

Depression alters how you taste food.
There's no gender bias in Science, right?

I wrote my research paper about Assisted Reproduction, and part of what I found was that people with non-lethal conditions sometimes use genetic screening to make sure their children will have the same condition. Dwarfism and deafness are two of the biggest examples. "Normal" people might see this as cruel, to choose specifically to have a child with a disease just because you want them to be like you. But I understand where they are coming from, a deaf person might feel they cannot raise a child who speaks. They might also feel that the child doesn't feel like they belong in the parent's culture. Anyway, I just read this blog, which cited a NYTimes article, which acted like this was some new idea. The sources I read for my paper were at least 10 years old. Interesting topic, I think.

Side note, its been 2 1/2 hours and my face is still numb. But I guess the pills are working because my teeth don't hurt now.

Hello Mommy?

Hey my Missouri Family and Friends,

I noticed on the news today that there were ice/snow storms last week. I really need to watch the news more often. Is everyone up there doing okay? No people-sicles?

No, my meds havn't kicked in yet, I'm naturally this way.



Oh the pain. Oh the a.go.ny. Oh the nastiness.

Yeah so I've had my gums trimmed up, and its pretty gross looking. They used alot of needles on me because the numbness kept going away. My lip, cheekbones, and nose are all still numb but the pills havn't kicked in yet. Weirdest sensation in the world? Numb nostrils. You should try it sometime.

So the doctor forgot to give me a quarters slip for tomorrow, and Hubby called the dental clinic to see if he could go back and pick it up. They said unless he gave it to me while we were there, I couldn't have it. Dammit, so I guess I have to go to work tomorrow. W.T.F?!

I'm gonna have some ice cream and pout.

Random Info

So it snowed today. In Texas. I didn't believe the forecast, but there you go. It snowed off and on all morning.

To Do List:

I finally have all the stuff for the care package I'm sending out. I think the box is too small, and I don't have the address.
Address in hand, now its Sunday. Dammit.

Its time to register for the Spring semester, and fill out paperwork to be a degree-seeking student, and also begin putting together my request so I don't have to do this job for 3 months.
Oops. Return the library books and pay the late fee, so they will lift the hold on registration.

I should find something to wear for Saturday's holiday party.
That was NOT fun. The shopping. Party was great.

I have a dental appointment next Thursday. (I won't have to work on Friday!)

I have a fitness test in two weeks.

We have pamphlets from the 3 apartments we put our names in for, but we should look at a few more just in case.

Its becoming obvious that we need to replace our land line with two cell phones, and I need to research the best plans in our area.

My car will need new base registration stickers next month. I went to do it today, but they are out of stickers.

Also, I'm going to make an appointment for a haircut, but this is why I'm scared:
Whatever, I woke up this morning and my hair was wrapped around my neck choking me, so the crap is going away!

I don't like your animals!

But I was looking for recipe's and this just looked too cute, and reminded me of a certain conversation from yesterday (you still have to try one):
Homemade Dog Treats
Homemade Cat Treats

Anyway, I got some good reviews about the turkey gravy I made, but I have lots of fresh leftovers. Have to use them before they go bad: heavy cream, parsley, shallots, etc. I'm thinking about a cream of broccoli soup, and I found a recipe here: Cream of Anything Soup. The best part? Recipes adjustable to serving. Sweet.

Friday, November 24, 2006


Everything is fine if you're liqueured up. Mmmmm.

No really, the turkey might have turned out okay. This party was supposed to start at noon, unfortunately everyone is all about the fashionably late entrance. I wanna try my turkey. Fukers. Get a moveon!

The future is here!

Wireless Power
Just plug the Wireless Extension Cord (WEC) base unit into a standard wall outlet, and plug whatever you need into the satellite unit. The WEC uses microwaves in the 7.2GHz range, so it won't interfere with wireless networks, Bluetooth components, etc. Now, all you need to do is adjust the antennae on the two units so they are aimed at each other. Turn everything on and you have the power! The distance the WEC units can broadcast differs from situation to situation (due to interference of such things as walls, power lines, and microwave ovens), but we've beamed power over 300 feet!


A man staggered home late after another evening with his drinking
buddies. Shoes in left hand to avoid waking his wife, he tiptoed
as quietly as he could toward the stairs leading to their upstairs
bedroom, but misjudged the bottom step in the darkened entryway.

As he caught himself by grabbing the banister, his body swung
around and he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey bottle in
each back pocket broke and made the landing especially painful.

Managing to suppress a yelp, the man sprung up, pulled down his
pants, and examined his lacerated and bleeding backside in the
mirror of a nearby darkened hallway. He then managed to find a
large full box of Band-Aids and proceeded to place a patch as best
he could on each place he saw blood.

After hiding the now almost empty box, he managed to shuffle and
stumble his way to bed.

In the morning, the man awoke with searing pain in head and butt
and his wife staring at him from across the room. She said, "You
were drunk again last night!"

Forcing himself to ignore his agony, he looked meekly at her
and replied, "Now, hon, why would you say that?"

"Well," she said, "it could be the open front door, it could be
the broken glass at the bottom of the stairs, it could be the
drops of blood trailing through the house, it could be your
bloodshot eyes, but, mostly....it's all those Band-Aids stuck
on the downstairs mirror

And then I said Duh.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

I don't like sitting at this desk.

The mirror. Right there. My face staring back at me. Accusing. Bored. Distant.

I am completely unable to focus.

Is it poetry?

I have arrived!

Okay, so I spent about 30 minutes trying to connect to a wireless network. I guess I was just in denial. I hate being tied to these hotel desks to use my computer.

Now, I must find food. And my shoes. I forgot my black shoes. All I have are tennis shoes (unacceptable) and my cute low heels, which are only good for about one of my outfits, IF I find a razor for my lower legs. Grr. Must find shoes.

Fun Fact: I havn't had a shower with water pressure this low since the last time I lived in poor-people assisted housing. This is a Radisson Resort? WTF? It also appears there is not a free breakfast, not even free bagels or donuts.

On the plus side, the in-room coffee is really good, and the lamps are cute. I guess that's what my fine organization is paying good money for.

I totally should have stayed at the Drury and driven to the conference every day. Drury rocks: sushi restaurant across the street, free hot breakfast AND dinner in the lobby, good water pressure, and much less expensive.

Bake Sale

I didn't find time to bake cookies for this week's bake sale. I'm leaving for San Antonio tomorrow, and I had to pack, do research for my paper, and some other stuff.

Sorries. I'll make them for the Harvest Feast, promise.

On the upside, the final paper is due Wednesday. She's letting me turn it in to her via email, and I'll drop off the packet on Thursday when I get back to town. Then she says its all easy street for class; some fun reading and a presentation for the paper. Okay, well I'm not excited about that, but it should be okay. There are only about 9 of us left in class now. Maybe I'll have time to read a Dean Koontz book or maybe get somewhere on the apartment hunt.

We are all Heartless Bitches

I just got this bulleting in myspace:

Ladies always bitch and bitch to their friends that there is never any good guys out there anymore, and they always end up with assholes who treat them bad. Well ladies next time your bitching, maybe look up to see who your bitching too, maybe that special someone is right there hanging on your every word like usual, screaming in his head "why don't you give me a try?"
Because the person you are usually searching for is right by you. *And yadayadayada...

My Response:
Nothing against the person I last got this post from, just this kind of post in general. Most women I know do not have or want the 'bad guy' but most men aren't this pure 'good guy' they claim to be. I love my man, even though he's not some perfect gentleman. I wouldn't want him to act like someone he is not.

This site is fun, check it out:
But why are "nice guys" misogynists? In the book "The Gift of Fear," Gavin DeBecker defines "niceness" as a "strategy of social interaction" and not evidence of innate goodness. So what he is saying is that being "nice" merely means your behavior is not offensive but does not mean your motives are automatically pure or good. Being a "nice guy" has been discussed elsewhere so there is no need to go into great detail here, but the bottom line is that trying to "be nice" or to use one's social charm to achieve one's social or sexual objectives is just as manipulative as anything else. The details are different, but what is at the core is the same.

Cookie History in progress

Pumpkin Cheesecake Cookies
You know you want some....
8:37 PM

Mmmmm Nummy
I'm satisfied with the cookies so far.
The bottoms are a little brown, but i think i can adjust for it.
Hey, they're ginger snaps, its okay! And tasty....
8:53 PM

Uh-oh, I'm confused.
Looks like I skipped an important, cheesecake-related step. Now I have one batch of plain gingersnaps.
Oh well.
10:13 PM

So I didn't use all of the cheesecake batter, but I'm out of cookie dough.
Must. Not. Eat. Batter.
Sooo tasty....must resist....
Will it keep until I make more dough this weekend?

94 !!!

My teacher scared me at the beginning of class tonight, because the disk I used to turn in my last assignement wouldn't work.

Dammit! I thought I was through with that thing!! Argh!

So she had me email her a copy to grade tonight. I didn't expect it back until maybe tomorrow, but I just got the reply. She only found 3 mistakes. One comma error, how the fuck did I miss that? One place where I guess I should have used his or her instead of their. I respectfully disagree....
And one period at the end of an entry, even though the book clearly shows no period after a webpage. If I pointed it out, she would correct the grade, but I figure its no big deal since I got a good grade.

Woohoo me! Much better than the 70 on the first paper!

Thank you Microsoft Word

Halloween Pic Mischief

Hey guys. We had a little Halloween party here last night. Not too many people showed up, but we had some fun. The cast included a Pirate, an Angel/Devil, a Doctor, a Bat, a Jamaican Stripper, a Fairy Mommy, a Lion Cub, and a little bundle. My wings got in the way, caused a disaster. I owe someone a drink, and I have a painful bruise on my foot.

Sarah and Chris had some intense fun with Guitar Hero (most evil party game ever)

We were all having alot of fun...

Until Chris bit a child's finger off!

If there are problems loading all the pictures at once, let me know and I'll post thumbnails instead. Also, I have the unedited originals and a couple pics of the little ones if you want those.

20 Oct BSG **spoilers**


- Man did they ever frak with Kara's head. Poor thing.

- Well, its not like they could call the show Battlestar Pegasus.

- Awww sad ...my favorite character died....
*does a happy dance*




*Loud music*
*Hubby tries to be cute and lovey*
*Annoyed look*

Oh, I didn't realize you were doing your homework now, since you havn't been doing it ALL WEEKEND.

Well duh. Its due tomorrow. That's why I'm doing now.

I don't know why I bother to pretend I will work on it sometime before 8pm Sunday. Denial? Optimism? Apparently I can only work if there is a time crunch. That has to change.

Saturday, October 21, 2006


Just got back from a nice refreshing walk with the hubby. *sigh* We hate Texas. Our list of places that would be maybe okay to live? Colorado, D.C area(maybenot), Oregon, Washington. Biggest complaint about Texass? There is not a damn ounce of culture in this place. Also, it smells. Skunks, sewage, skunks, mmm potato wedges *follows nose*...

Only thing I like about this place? The stars, but thats only because this is a medium/small city and this area doesn't have much light pollution. The Orionid meteor shower is this weekend. I slept through best viewing this morning, but maybe there will still be something to see if I stay up tonight. If I had a small backyard telescope, I would catch the comet Swan cruising through. *sigh* No such luck.

In other news? I wish we would go look at more apartments. I wish I was more motivated for school. These and more I would wish upon a shooting star, if I see any tonight.

In response to Chloe:

Is Goonies the one with the big dog? I dunno, I'm a complete outcast on 'classic' movies like that.

I've had volunteer work that made me feel bad, especially visiting old people, especially vets, especially during the holidays. But some makes me feel good, like tutoring kids, which is weird, because I despise other people's offspring.

I hate dogs. Destructive disgusting beasts.
Also hate cats. Evil disgusting beasts.

When I eventually live a settled life, I want to get an African Gray Parrot.

I was at a public bathroom an hour ago that smelled like maybe the sanitary napkin trash hadn't been taken out. Rotten un-ladylike odor...

I've only eaten (i originally typed eated) Thai food twice, because even the 'not spicy' food burns my tongue off.

Random, completely unrelated information:
I didn't eat any lunch today, but I did take a lunch break.
My arms hurt.
I have 3 homework assignments due on Monday, and 2 due on Tuesday.
Today is Sci-Fi Friday.
Micheal and I are looking for an apartment to move into in December.
Ants. Fucking Ants.
There are no curry restaurants in San Angelo.
Scratch- There are no good restaurants in San Angelo.

I'm sorry for that too.

Counted Sorrows

For any Dean Koontz fans out there, I just found out he finally published The Book of Counted Sorrows.

From "The Mask"

Evil is faceless strangers,
living in distant neighborhood.
Evil has a wholesome, hometown face,
with merry eyes and an open smile.
Evil walks among us, wearing a mask
which looks like all our faces.

From "Cold Fire"

Nowhere can a secret keep
always secret, dark and deep,
half so well as in the past,
buried deep to last, to last.

Keep it in your own dark heart,
otherwise the rumors start.
After many years have buried
secrets over which you worried,
no confidant can then betray
all the words you didn't say.

Only you can then exhume
secrets safe within the tomb
of memory, of memory.

In the real world
as in dreams,
nothing is quite
what it seems.

Good reading for my current mood. Except I just saw that he also published his next Odd Thomas novel, Brother Odd. So my mood is improved, but only a bit.

It's Raining!


It just started raining. I've had the sliding door open all day, and just now every one of my neighbors' dogs started barking LIKE THE SKY HAD DEEPLY OFFENDED THEM.

I put on some tangerine lip gloss and answered the door...

The capital of Djibouti is Djibouti.

Current mood: slightly inebriated

I have a dental appointment in a couple weeks, so last night I used my retainers. I woke up this morning and my teeth hurt, as usual, but I realized the retainers were gone. WTF? I went to PT not knowing where they were... but when I got back I found them in my bed. I guess its because I usually take them out in the night and put them on my nightstand, but I got rid of the nightstand recently.



Okay, back to tv.

The Ants Go Marching...

As the vaccum roars to life and the horrific tube of death approaches, the ants struggle as fast as their little legs can carry them. Their tiny minds are overwhelmed with the idea that such a vile machine can even exist. "I don't want to believe in a universe that contains this horrible thing!!"


Yeah, well I don't want to live in Texas. I guess you should've thought of that before you walked into my damn house and bit me. Fukkers.

Okay, while there are actually ants swarming about my feet, I'm starting to think some of this is in my head. Now that I know they're there and I've been bit a few times, I'm getting these creapy-crawly feelings all the time. Maybe its the ants, but maybe my husband has been gone for 3 weeks and I havn't had a reason to shave my legs...

News Flash

TJ is highly unmotivated.

Still not far on my homework. Tomorrow is a new day.

Saturday, October 7, 2006


So about that annotated bibliography, I'm not in the mood, okay. I decided I'm not doing any more homework until I clear the disaster area that my office has become. I don't even know where to stack things anymore. I have to move my printer to a more stable spot. I cannot work in here, and I'm tired of doing my work on my couch (coutch? why does neither one look right? why am I not going to look it up?) because it hurts my wrist to use the mouse from that angle.

Also, I'm still kinda annoyed about this iPod thing. Someone please help, before I pull my ears off from the frustration.

Greetings to Wade, new subscriber, who I do not know.
What possibly drew you to my humble bloggy?
Probably my excessive, yet classy, use of oversized smileys and profanity.

***Update*** I figured it out, but its even more frakkin annoying. The iPod plays in the exact order you originally added to the playlist. But iTunes doesn't ever show them in that order, so it was confusing, and I can't add something to the middle of a playlist later. Mother. Fucker.

***Update2*** RTFM Again

To reorder songs manually, select the playlist you want to reorder, then drag the song titles into the order you want to hear them. If you can't drag a song, click the column heading with the numbers to sort the playlist by play order.You can't reorder songs if they're sorted by one of the other headings, or if shuffle is turned on.
Also, my bloody ears are now sitting on the desk, so I won't be needing the iPoop after all.

Wish me luck

I'm about to go to a BBQ. Eek! Social Event!
*hides under rock*

*aahh cozy rock*
Problem: I'm having some rather unfortunate effects from the cheeseburger I had yesterday. This might not be good at all.

Wish me luck.


Reasonable amount of fun, people to talk to so I didn't have to watch the game. Ate too much. No inappropriate odors from me. All in all, a successful social experience.

Friday, October 6, 2006


I love BSG. Frakkin Sonofabitch Toasters!

Also, Queen Victoria was a werewolf...!

Now my arms hurt...

So the office cut out early and went bowling this afternoon. I'm not normally very good at all, rarely break 100, but its one of the very few "sports" I like. Mostly because you only move 5 feet per turn, and you can drink, and its indoors. So today I did really well (for me) and my first game was 135. Smoked the competition, such that it was (i mean, I beat them...). Second game was 116, which put me in 3rd, but the best in that game was only 136.
So I think I did pretty well overall. It was fun.

We've got new Dr. Who tonight, plus 2 hours of brand-new Battlestar. Its a good day. BBye!

Finely Crafted Space Vessel

Some insight into the world of the nerd. Actually, I was just posting this email string for my own entertainment, but feel free to enjoy it. I was taking Pre-Calculus and suffering massive headaches, fevers, and muscle pain at the time. Also, I couldn't move my neck.

Me: I always look to Dooce for my daily dose of pick-me-up, and I was feeling a bit down just now ( with the -two/(sqrt 30) being not equal to -(sqrt 3)/3 )…*grrrr*

Enjoy this for just a moment...

James: Awww Its ok. Things will get better I promise. Anyway I have no idea what kind of rocket science equations your putting in your e-mails, but Ill read the article when I get home tonight.

Me: Rocket Science, yeah...sure. You keep thinking that. I got myself turned around and the answer I got wasn't the one in the book. I figured it out though.

James: Good for you, if you didn't it would have kept me up all night thinking about the answer, was the answer JELLO, cause that's what I got.

Me: Paperclip

James: 42

What was the question again?

Dan: Apparently the question had something to do with a rocket built out of paper clips and jello. -_-

Me: A rocket made out of 42 paperclips, runs on jello, smells like skunk. That's it guy's, we're ready to make history!

James: Does the Jello need to be magnetized?
Dan: It needs treated with inverse Tachyon pulse emissions.

James: Where the hell are we going to find the crystal to run that kind of power? We should equip it with Airbags too cause this doesn't sound too safe.

Dan: Airbags, Lawl. Learn2seatbelt in my opinion.

Me: Keep your inverse pulses to your own quarters.
No airbags, we use Inertial Dampeners. Of course, with the slightest technical problem they will go offline and we will be thrown across the ship. It's called 'fun.' Seatbelts are also unnecessary, you wimps.

James: Can I at least get cyanide tablet?

Dan: I want some Alka-Seltzer tablets in case I come under attack, so I can pretend to froth at the mouth.

Me: You'd rather die by poison than by rapid decompression? You don't belong in my new spaceship. (The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us are going to the stars in jello-powered rockets.)
Frothing at the mouth is only allowed post-mealtime, when alien bacteria have invaded your lunchmeat. It's more 'fun' when its real.

James: I thought the hull would be made out of Jello I didn't think you were using it as a alternative fuel source. I think we should use bubble gum instead. We should use bean bag chairs for seats and nerf guns as forward torpedoes.

Me: NOooo...we should seal the ship with bubble gum! Have you ever seen used bubble gum? That stuff is solid.

James: I think it depends on what kind of bubble gum we use or maybe we can mix bubble gum and silly putty to make a super material. O.o and we should use plastic bags for helmets.

Me: You'll be the first one to test the new helmet design, very smart. ;) Maybe we can take the super putty gum material and lay it over a lattice of paperclips. Make the whole ship out of it.
Is there some real work I'm supposed to be doing?

James: The new helmet design is flawed, but I will test out the ceramic wrap jump suit. I wonder if we can get it to run on fecal matter?
And to your 2nd question..prob not.

Dan: Real work? Crazy talk like that from our chief engineer and warp core specialist is cause for a little worry. Especially in a ship with no seatlbelts or airbags. The only possible solution to the numerous safety concerns this craft is raising is to install a Radio Frequency Jammer, and a IFF (friend/foe) detector to be prepared for any threat that may arise.

Me: You're talkin' like you ain't talkin' to the Captain of this finely crafted space vessel....
Daniel is now in charge of chewing all the gum for the composite hull. You have one week.
James is responsible for manning the Turbulent Path Sensor (TPS) array. I require hourly reports.
Michael is the Captain's Wench...he shall retrieve me a bottle of the moonshine I've been brewing in the warp coil.

James: The sensor array became over stimulated in recent tests and began emitting a white ooze, we are unsure of the effect this will have on the project. We have taken a sample and sent it to the lab for DNA testing, but it will take a week to get the results. As of right now all future tests have been put on hold and there is no ETA for when testing will resume. Needless to say my engineers are baffled by this recent development and need time to figure out the cause.

Me: James isn't allowed to work night shift anymore. Didn't I tell you to keep your 'inverse pulse experiments' to your private time? Watch that console for signs of...I bet that's how the Borg got started.

James: Ok well someone is going to have to pickup the slack, OO and I decided to decorate the inside of the spaceship with the magazines I had before the random emissions.

Me: I think you've been 'picking up the slack' enough for everyone.

James: OO I have been picking up something, but this spaceship will not build itself you know.

Me: Does anyone know where the Advil is? Who's in charge of stocking medical supplies? ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz............................

James: Captain whats the status of this?...so far I have been fired/denied any requests I have made..let's get this ball rolling shall we. Dan is completely inept and is now eating his part of the project.

Me: Ooooo...NOT GOOD Danny Boy! You're never pooping again
James, none of your lip, mister. You're fired. Also, you're in charge of the medical supplies.
Everything else is being contracted out to Alien Hippo Corp.

You fired me and gave me access to the medical supplies, which I just put on EBAY.

Oh for Fuck Sake!

Oh for Fuck Sake! My print head is misaligned again. I just printed this damn memo twice. The table it is on isn't sturdy enough, it shakes side to side too much.

Fuck. I've wasted alot of paper tonight. I'm buying cheap printer paper soon, not this nicer stuff I use for scrapbooking. Its not card stock, just good printer paper.

Fuck. Also, I will use the old printer, no matter how much it annoys me. No sense wasting my photo-quality ink on damn memo printouts.

***Update...realigning didn't work. How's that happen? Too tired to care, she's getting it as it is.*****

Late-night survey

My Personality

Openness To Experience

You are introverted, reserved, and quiet with a preference for solitude and solitary activities. Your socializing tends to be restricted to a few close friends. You can be very easily upset, even by what most people consider the normal demands of living. People consider you to be extremely sensitive and emotional. A desire for tradition does not prevent you from trying new things. Your thinking is neither simple nor complex. To others you appear to be a well-educated person but not an intellectual. People see you as tough, critical, and uncompromising and you have less concern with others' needs than with your own. You like to live for the moment and do what feels good now. Your work tends to be careless and disorganized.

You feel tense, jittery, and nervous and often feel like something dangerous is about to happen. You may be afraid of specific situations or be just generally fearful. You don't usually get angry too easily but some things can annoy you. You tend to lack energy and have difficult initiating activities. You are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. You do not experience strong, irresistible cravings and consequently do not find yourself tempted to overindulge. You experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress.

People generally perceive you as distant and reserved, and you do not usually reach out to others. You tend to feel overwhelmed by, and therefore actively avoid, large crowds. You often need privacy and time for yourself. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You lead a moderately paced life. You like some energetic activities, but also like to relax and take it easy. You get overwhelmed by too much noise and commotion and do not like thrill-seeking activities. You are not prone to spells of energetic high spirits.

Often you do not feel effective, and may have a sense that you are not in control of your life. In general you tend to be disorganized and scattered. You have a strong sense of duty and obligation, and feel a moral obligation to do the right thing. You are content to get by with a minimal amount of work, and might be seen by others as lazy. You have a reasonable amount of will-power and are able to follow through on tasks that you feel you need to complete. You can be distracted however and have been known to procrastinate. You often say or do the first thing that comes to mind without deliberating alternatives and the probable consequences of those alternatives.

Test Yourself Compare Yourself

Sugar...mmm sugar

Can you believe you can order Custom M&Ms??!!
Also, they have different flavors. I'm fond of almond, or peach, or maybe cherry. Ahh consumerism...though I doubt you can get custom M&Ms with different flavors. How cool would that be?

Speaking of sugar, I baked my semi-almost-famous pumpkin cheesecake this weekend. The commissary didn't have standard canned pumpkin, only pumpkin pie mix, WHICH IS DIFFERENT! Also, I got chatty (a rare thing) and kinda sorta overcooked it. I took it into the office this morning, and those who had some seemed to like it. Oopsie, I forgot to package up the rest at the end of the day. Its still sitting on the breakroom table. That's not good.

For those who have requested the recipe (Mom), now would be a good time to get a pen and paper. I adapted it from a recipe in my favorite cookbook ever, Better Homes and Gardens Biggest Book of Cookies. It was originally a bar recipe.

2 cups finely crushed gingersnaps
1/4 cup butter, melted

Punkin' fillin'

1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (to taste)

Cheesecake fillin'
4 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar (or more, you'll feed this to other people )
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 dash of pumkin pie spice (for fun)
4 eggs

Set oven to 325.
1. Lightly grease pan (oops), I use a regular cheesecake pan, but 13x9x2 should work. Combine butter and gingersnap crumbs. Press into pan, a large spoon works for this. Bake crust for 10 minutes or until firm (bake?...maybe next time).
2. Combine ingredients for pumpkin filling, set aside.
3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar, spice, and vanilla, beat some more (cooking is kinky that way). Add each egg one at a time, beat until combined (i'm getting kinda hot).
4. Pour about 1/4 of the cheesecake batter into the pumkin mixture and mix until smooth (and yummy). Pour remainin cheesecake mixture into the pan. Spoon the pumkin mixture in dollops over top, and use a knife tip (i like chopsticks better) to gently swirl into a pretty pattern.
5. Bake until the end of time. Really, it always takes me forever, but at least 30 minutes. Its done when a toothpick or fork comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for an hour, then move to fridge 24 hours. If you try to cut it before 24 hours, DISASTER SHALL STRIKE YOU!!!!!! (no really, it'll suck)

I love October.

The Doctor will see you now.

Dr. Who season 2 premier was an hour and a half long, followed by another new hour long episode. Sweet. The Doctor did most of the first episode asleep, the rest in his pajamas. "Saved the world in my jammers, very Aurthur Dent." I love this show.

Today I had a bit much time on my hands, and wanted to know what the Nutrition Facts were for the banana I just had. I Googled and found this, the most useful nutrition site on the whole internet. Ever. You can easily lookup the food you ate, add it to your list, and edit the serving size to what you actually ate. Then it will chart the total of all your food all day. I've tried the food-guide pyramid before, but it was a pain in the ass and not very helpful. This thing is chart-y, and I do so love charts. Bonus, they are actually helpful and fairly easy to read.

I watch Eureka. If you don't watch the show, its good but kinda silly/lame/formula-driven. Classified town full of geniuses, wacky disaster every week. Fun to watch. Hey but if you like thinkgeek.com, then check out Made in Eureka. I wish I could get my hands on a ThinkBack Memory Backup Drive:

Never forget anything again! After downloading every moment, dream and experience you've ever had through the ocular interface (resembles a pair of goggles), the ThinkBack Memory Backup Drive stores them on a special hard disk, which will allow you to review your memories on the LCD screen. Now you'll be able to call up the lyrics of a song you heard last week or relive that amazing weekend you had by the lake house. You can even compress memory clips into MPEG-4 videos for sharing with friends. Don't really like where your life's gone lately? Just upload a previous backup to your brain and get rid of those bad experiences — quite literally; your old life won't even be a memory. The drive can hold a dozen memory backups from up to four people at once. Memory-editing software is optional, and requires certification from a licensed medical practitioner or professional philosopher.

Yellow Ribbon

Okay, morbid, politically incorrect, but exactly what I think about those stupid "support-our-troops" ribbons on gas-guzzling cars

Goodnight now.

And now, please enjoy this video of what I wish I could do at work. Did I mention I'm about sick of this shit? I'm pretty sure I'm sick of this shit. Shit.

Gmail rocks

So I was just checking my mail for an update from my english teacher (is my research topic approved or what??!!) when I noticed a gmail feature I'd never heard of before. Spreadsheets. Spreadsheets you can share with specific other people on gmail. Way neat. Sounds like a good way to do my checkbook, since hubby and I have a joint account for paying bills and we never use our checkbook register. For years, I have been using Works Spreadsheet or Microsoft Excel for my register because I hate the ones that come with the checkbook. I make too many mistakes, and I love SORTING!!! This year, the whole year, I just didn't do it. Wow. I left for Florida last January and now the year is almost over, wow. Anyway he always ended up never helping with it, never adding his things like when he pays the cable bill or transfers cash to his personal spending account. (We both have one, we both get the same amount each month, don't act like I'm the money-meanie wife.) Maybe this will help. Starting next year of course. Or maybe this November. I dunno.

Topic topic topic is my research topic approved??!?!?!?!?!?

So, this is the topic I sent her:

Should there be more restrictions on who gets fertility treatments and how they are performed, in order to ensure healthy births and promote adoption?

And this was the response:

I don't think it would be ethical to limit such a thing. If they can afford it, (it's very expensive and often doesn't 'take' the first few times) then it should be their choice. And I'm sure women have to meet certain health requirements now before they're approved for treatment. Is there perhaps another spin you could put on it?

So I said:

That's just the thing, in England they are having a big argument over restricting fertility treatments to women who are overweight. They are basically saying they can do it, but it won't be free like it is for 'healthy' people. Critics are saying its the first step in government only allowing those they see fit to reproduce. Eugenics and all that. I could draw from studies on health problems in children whose mothers are obese.

For something that applies more to the US, there are ways to prevent those extreme multiple pregnancies before the egg is even fertilized. Somehow the clinics get better ratings because of the increased number of babies born instead of the number of healthy births, so they don't want to encourage patients to take those precautions.

I think it can work, maybe if I forget about the adoption angle and stick with fertility treatments.

That was on Friday, and her I am at Sunday night and no response. I'm going to take this as a yes, because there is an assignment due tomorrow that depends on finding studies for the topic. I have to work tomorrow, so I have to go ahead with what I've got. I guess its too bad if she doesn't like it.
