- Seriously. I don't know what's going on lately. Like, how many people do not fucking know their address. Or their phone number. Help me get food to you.

People are angry and cranky and lazy and without energy and just in general full of harumph. And occasionally I am one of them.

- School is sucking my soul away, and I have been busting my ass for mediocre grades. VERY mediocre grades.

Psych of Aging: 77
Abnormal Psych: 81 (not that she's given us grades for our journal entries)
Latin: 88

What in the fresh hell is going on? I feel like I study all the time. But I don't seem to retain anything? I don't know. It's all so frustrating. And I love that I am doing the best in Latin, which is the class I feel the most lost in. Although apparently some of that shit is sticking to the wall.

All I know is that I miss just reading for fun. Or not trying to source through PsychInfo or anything. I'm just. I'm tired.

- I feel like I'm constantly doing dishes. At home and at work. My hands and nails look terrible. They look so old. Maybe I am just getting old and not used to noticing.

- I do adore my new sanctuary though. It's nice to have somewhere TO study. The room came together well. I did some cleaning and organizing of the dining room as well. Unfortunately I need a time where Erica has time and energy and I am actually home so that we can reorganize the shelves the right way. Erica has the most professional kitchen experience, having gone to school and all, so I would appreciate her direction.

- My cat just turned 15. She is old and sassy and adorable. Apparently Dale got her to hiss the other day when she was in her little kittie condo (also known as her harassment tube) cause she was in the moment. Andrew still hasn't heard her hiss. Right now she is HOWLING through the halls. Again. With her little jingly lion in her mouth. Heh.

- Not going to Pennsic this year. Going to Portugal and Spain! I still don't know Portuguese and my Spanish is weak at best. SHOULD BE AWESOME. Heh.

- Our store got inspected today. We got 3 stars out of 5. For things like... road dust on the outside windowsill (we once got inspected an HOUR after it was cleaned, and it still wasn't clean enough. IDFK.)... Andrew's pants weren't black enough (that shit is racist)... Our safe not being time locked, even though it is a weird time sensitive safe... our walls aren't white enough... Tiffany apologizing in a customer role play, but forgetting to actually say the words "I'm sorry"... yeah. Shit like that. MAKES ME CRAZY. We have 30 days of freedom though. That mostly means we break down the makeline earlier. And paint our nails colors. Wewt.

- Both of Andrew's birthday parties went off quite well. I adore him.

- CAT. WHY ARE YOU HOWLING. Alright, Andrew is combing her now. She has ceased to yowl.

- Anyrate. I had other shit to write, but I forgot. I still need to put Florida pix up. Ooopsies.

Ah life.

I don't have work till Friday. We're entering our slow season after the Super Bowl, so all our hours are reduced. Which is a bummer.

However, school starts this week. So maybe it's okay. Abnormal Psych meets once on Monday night, Psychology of Aging is Monday & Wednesdays, and Latin is still Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I made sure to keep Tuesdays off so Danni & I can still chill, and I figured it'd be a good idea to have one whole frickin' day off. Unlike last semester, where that was problematic.

Tomorrow! Andrew and I (WHO IS OFF THE SAME TIME AS ME *shockshock*) are going to run many errands.

OH! And I cleaned my side of the room. Holy hell. So much shit has been chucked. So much cleaner. All the happy. :) I really cleaned out shelves and the such, so hopefully it'll be easier to maintain this time.

And I did my taxes. Getting about $2000 back in total. Wewt! Thank you Earned Income Credit. Though, this means I can going to Portugal with Z and her family. The flight is about $1200. It's cool because Lenice invited Tami, so when they all lapse into Portuguese, we can talk to each other at least. Heh. Although I did order a level 1 of Brazilian Portuguese from Rosetta Stone, and Tami & I are going to share it so we're not so fucking lost.

I've also decided to go to Florida to see my mother. It's gonna be a pricey trip, because we can't stay with her (not that I would with Charlie still drawing breath) because there is no ROOM to do so, so that means a hotel and she has no car, so that means a rental. I thought about driving. It's only about 12 hours. Which isn't much, really. So, we'll see. Cause that would save the cost of renting a car AND a plane, so it might make fiscal sense.

I'm quite excited to switch up my vacation this year. Should be good times! :D

Crap. W H Y A M I H U N G R Y?!?! I had dinner. Arg.
synnoveaevael: (Kittie - Sometimes I purr)
At work today, we're puttering around, like ya do, and in a lull, Tiffany (my 5 foot nuffin' assistant manager) was outside having a cigarette. A man in a brown coat and hat, possibly of Hispanic descent, came up to her and had his hands in his pockets.

Now, our store has been robbed before. And this guy wasn't saying anything, just slowly and steadily coming up to Tiffany, not really looking at her. She opened the door and saw me and called for me.

The man had handed her what looked like a silverish dream catcher necklace on a black cord and motioned to his mouth like he was eating. Then he started to sign. He wasn't talking because he was deaf. None of us at this store happen to know ASL, so we kind of just did hand motions back and forth.

I called over our general manager, Reva and we all started to realized what was going on.

Turns out, he was trying to trade this necklace for food.

Once our brains took over, we ran to the heat rack. We had just had a fuck up (i.e., made one too many) of a plain cheese pizza, so it was fresh. We gave it to him, and then Ronnie, Reva's husband, got him a soda.

And we handed the necklace back to him. He took all these things with tears in his eyes, and signed thank you several times.

After we all came back inside, Ronnie went outside after the guy who walked a ways down and sat in the icy grass to eat his pizza. He handed him a $20.

He went off, and I didn't see him again. Before that though, I realize it was him I saw laying in the grass. He looked very meditative. I was like "why would someone lay in the cold ass grass waiting for the bus??" Still not sure why he was laying there.

But I'm glad he got some dinner.

I work with some good people.

We now have a policy that if he comes back, he gets fed. No questions asked.

I have nothing to say! Isn't that fantastic!

Wait. I'm pissed at FB. *kicks it*

Grey's Anatomy is good.

Andrew & I have been super affectionate and having awesome sexy times lately. I LOVE THAT!

Work was FUCKING IRRITATING today. But like, tolerable. People, KNOW WHAT YOU WANT WHEN YOU CALL SOMEONE. Fucking swear.

Mosquitoes are OFF THE HOOK here. SO ITCHIE.

Tomorrow (today!) is John & MaryBeth's wedding! DRINKS ALL AROUND! Also tis the wifey's opening for her art show. HUZZAH!!

My cat is on the crack. I love her.

Roommates are good. No shanking.

Andrew actually bought the card for the wedding tomorrow. UNPROMPTED. Just cause he was at the store! I nearly passed out from shock!

Also, he's been dabbling with his cooking fu. I'm getting fat. FatTER. :D It's okay, it's out of love.

So itchie.

I actually have a Halloween costume planned. I need to sew it up. YAAAY!

Ramble on. SING MAH SONG.

- On Wednesday, I went to the ophthalmologist. He was of the opinion that I have an allergy to my saline solution (more specifically, the preservative in it) and he had me on a strict no contact lens diet until our next appointment, Monday. OH NOES. I had to drive to and from Kentucky that weekend! Turns out I did it like a champ. I didn't use ANY of the emergency disposable contacts he gave me and I used the steroid drops diligently. When I saw him yesterday, he was like "hm. Your eyes seem better, BUUUUTT, using this fancy dye shit I see that there is still abrasions. Hm." So now I am on antibiotics for a month for mah eyes. And I'm to keep using the steroid drops, which TASTE HORRIBLE. (They drip in my eyes, down my sinuses and into my mouth. YICK YICK.) So I have ANOTHER appointment on Monday to see if there is an improvement, and hopefully we can work from there. He also said that my eye script isn't what it should be in the right eye. MOTHERFUCKER. I just got glasses. Oh well. So I went to America's Best to see if they could do something for me. Shit, they were supposed to call me back Monday. I should harass them. I also need to call the movie theater for double charging me for a movie. MUST REMEMBER. Hangover 2 was good, but not $22 good. ;-)

- ANDREW GOT ME A FRIDGE!! Okay, it's for both of us, but seriously. WHATEVER. So Steven & Erica are in the smaller fridge, as is Alex, but he literally puts in a container of olives, so it's like they have it alone, and Andrew, Nico & I have the adult sized fridge. We went to the BRAND NEW WEGMANS today (which is seriously twice the size of any other Wegmans I have been in) and loaded the fucker and we still have a TON of free space. *cries*

- Dude, it was a dorkfest. We (being Danni, Andrew, Jenn & I) met up with James & Rita, and her niece Jen, at Wegmans where we ended up bumping into Little Tim, Wendy and the boys. Keagan is 6 weeks now! HE IS SO SMUSHABLE! <3 We spent three fucking hours in that store, just wandering and then we got noms from the hot food area.

- KENTUCKY!! So on Friday the Wifey (Devon) and I, loaded up into my car and headed off for the wilds of Kentucky. We got there in good time and I saw MAH SAVANNAH!! And the doggies and Justin and Meagan and Leigh-Anna and it was awesome AND OMG MISS MORRIGAN. I love that baby. She had me at her babbling *siiiiiiiigh* I forgot how much I missed my girls. I knew how much I missed mah Savy though. Miss Fiona is gestating beautifully and Justin is such a good guy. I kept calling him Mr. Marlow. *giggles* Also, I have the best road trippin' wifey ever. She made sure I got my steroid drops when I was supposed to and photodocumented and blogged everything. It was hilarious and awesome. THERE'S THAT STEREOTYPE AGAIN! Came back to MD on Sunday and I realized I'd slaughtered most bugs in KY, WV and most of the panhandle of MD. And at some point with a squeegee managed to scratch up the roof of my car. It should come out with compound. I need to call Toyota about the paint. They have some things to do for me.

- Andrew is snoring next to me. HE ARE SO CUTE.

- Found out one of my assistant managers FINALLY got demoted for being an ass. It's about time really. I can't believe anyone can run their mouth, be completely incorrect so often and still not understand that what they're saying is BS. Baffles me. He also reminds me of a small child pushing his boundaries.

- I AM SO ITCHIE. I have no earthly clue what is up. I'm on a Benadryl, waiting for it to take effect. I also lathered my itchie itchie leg with Benadryl cream. Maybe it's the antibiotic? I don't fucking know. It's so mild. I'm still taking a acidophilus with it though.

- I had a girlie doctor visit. Absolutely NO anxiety. I think it has to do with the fact that she has the speculum in me for MAYBE 30 seconds. She's awesome. She's also cutting me a break with $$ since I pay out of pocket. So is the eye doc too, actually. I know I really appreciate it. I can't believe I'm doing all this expensive stuff when I need to be HOARDING CASH since I'm taking off like, every weekend ever. Speaking of...

- WICKERMAN!! Andrew is gonna make ValChuck style metal poles for my wall tent. He also has to figure out how we're gonna clean and re-treat that thing. *ponderponder* We have so much booze. I'm to the point where I have no idea how we're getting it all in my car. LOL.. luckily aside from some MOOP, we should be able to repack well. :D Must remember disco ball & to find body paint.

- Okay. I have work tomorrow since someone called out and HEY I need moneys. *falls on face*

It's 3am.

I should be sleeping.


Let's see.

OH OH OH! So a while back Elisabet asks me if I'll teach a basic calligraphy class at the Collegium she's offered to autocrat (*bwahaha*, FOOL!!) and I'm all like, sure. Since her husband (head scribe) is doing all the effing cooking, the teaching thing falls to me. Cept. Uh.

I don't know what I'm doing.

Doesn't matter! No one came to my class anyways. I made a sign for the broken bathroom. I AM USEFUL.

So Gerita comes up to me and is like. Yo. Fer realz. They want to do SCROLLS today. And I was like, fo' sheeeez, whaaat. Happy faces and IOUs to all! She laughs. She comes back a half hour later and goes "uh. No scroll list for YOU." And I was like "FINE THEN. NO HAPPY FACES."

Literally. This is very much how the conversation went. We SCA folk are a SRS BZNS type.

Turns out I got pulled up to the court. I got inducted to the Order of the Hart. Why? Cause I am a slave to service, baby. For the scribal stuff, for the HHH stuff, for my general helpfulness. Isn't that swell?

My first real award. *tear* And they spelled my name wrong. *headdesk* It's just an IOU though. I think I'm gonna have Jacintha do the calligraphy. Cause her handwriting is bangin'.

I was pleased. I certainly didn't think I'd be noticed so far. That was nice :) Also, court is SO MUCH MORE FUN when the baron hosts a beer tasting before it.

After that we went to Andrew's parents' house and had dinner and played ridiculous games that I SUCK at. I feel so dumb compared to these people. It baffles me. I have never felt so slow in my life. I just smile and totter through it though.

I totally called one of my coworkers out on having sand in his vagina. So I told my boss about it. She was like "I HEARD! What happened??" LOLZ. I told her and she was DYING. Luckily she likes me. Oh, that's why she hired me. I was like "Ya know. Why DID you hire me?" "I don't know. I just liked you." Yay. Being liked by the lady who gives you hours is nice. Also, one of the insiders quit. He had a moment and a half man. So there's an update or two in here.

*ponders* Tia keeps sending me bebe face pictures. *sighs* She is precious. SO CUTE. OH!! Savannah came and visited and I got to get kicked by Fiona. I can't wait to meet her.

My summer schedule is going to be HELL. I told Reva she's gonna want to fire me. I hope I can afford it. The closer I get to it, the more I'm like, HA HA HA. I don't know. It's rough.

I should really get to sleep. The wifey, Devon, and I are going to troll around Frederick tomorrow and I have to drop off my car to get my plates and the one auxiliary jack fixed (what used to be the cigarette lighter).

If it's got balls or wheels or, apparently, computer chips, it's gonna give you grief.

My computer shit the bed. Again. I finally figured out it's the NVIDIA driver update. I went to restart after a standard Windows update and LO. Fucker wouldn't go back on. BSoD, etc. Not starting in safe mode, a bunch of other shit. I tried booting from the disc, nada. Annoying. Of course, Gabe looks at it and turns it on and it's like "Oh Master, would you like me to fix myself? Click OK!"


At least it's fixed.

Also, my car was dropped off at Aamco Monday night, so Tuesday I call at 2:30 and they're like "...oh, right. Altima." DUDE!

So I didn't go to work Wednesday cause they were fiddling with it. Turns out it was done Wednesday night, but NO ONE CALLED. But the guy at the desk thought he had TWO different conversations with me that never occurred and I have the phone records to prove it.

Anyrate, they were all "we know you want that $400 brake job done, but we are TERRIFIED if you don't fix this $260 axle issue. SCREW YOUR BRAKES."

When the mechanic is all about screwing the expensive fix in favor of a cheap one, you find money for both.

So $700 later, the car is fixed. I am adding that $120 onto the tab I owe Andrew, cause I had to borrow some cash. I paid ALL in cash. $80 in singles, about $120 in $5's and $10's and the rest were $20s. Heh. I could have paid the whole thing on my own, but I can't remember when my car insurance comes out, and I get paid tomorrow, but prolly won't get to the bank till Saturday so I didn't want to fuck up and bounce anything. So it's nice to know I am not destitute. And? Being able to pay for things is SO FUCKING COOL. I missed the ability.

Tomorrow is work at noon. Z is gonna drop on by around 3:30/4. I'm hoping tomorrow is an early Friday. I don't know if that'll happen, but I'd like some quality time with mah Z. I don't have work till like, 4 or 5 on Saturday so that's good. Then I'm off like, 8 or 9 then. So we has times. :)

I should update about Dominos a bit more. Let me tell you. I really like this stupid job. NO STRESS. Sometimes the customers get salty, but Dominos is one of those places that's like "Oh, hey. THE CUSTOMER ISN'T ALWAYS RIGHT!!!" And that is fucking nice. My boss, Reva, is a doll face. Her husband, Ron, is a driver there, and he's a doll. The rest of my managers are cool for the most part, and the rest of us drivers are ball busters and we have fun.

It works out to roughly $13 to $18 an hour depending on the day. I get $6.50 an hour, which is nice. I usually get at least $11 an hour in tips. Most people are decent tippers. Some are assholes. BTW, if you stiff your driver, it makes us SAD DAMMIT! Also. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE, use reflective numbers on your house. A light ABOVE your house number might as well not exist. You will get your food a LOT faster if your number is like, ya know. Visible. Tips from a driver. *sage nod*

Did I mention Andrew got me a Color Nook for Christmas? Yeah, he spent far too much on me. So I am currently reading Bram Stoker's "Dracula" on it which is AWESOME cause if there's a footnote or a "hey, this is what that phrase means" I can just click the hyper link, it shows me and I go "Oh, that's what that means" and tap it again and I'm back to my page. WHICH MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO READ.

Ahh. The little things.

There's an update for the new year. Woooooo.
