Meet Me on Monday

Monday, February 27th, 2012 | Personal with 7 Comments

It looks like someone else has taken over the duties of this. Thank you, thank you. Oddly enough Acting Balance is located in my state as well. Closer than I might think looking over some pictures as I see that bridge everyday on the way to work 🙂

Here we go!

1. What was the first live concert you ever attended?
Def Leopard

2. What colors look best on you?
Honestly, I’m not a stylist so I have no earthly idea. I do know I’m not too particularly fond of purple or red though and won’t buy them – or rather make sure my coworker doesn’t buy them for me because I don’t go shopping either as I hate it. I give her money and she buys me clothes, very well I might add.

3. What is one thing about you that most people wouldn’t know?
Hmm, not really sure. What you see is what you get.

4. Who would you call to be bailed out of jail?
One of my friends.

5. What do you think is the greatest invention of your lifetime and why?
Blackberry. I can’t go anywhere without this thing. I use it for my school schedule, my work schedule, my google reader, email, an extra phone number using google voice as my “home” phone so I don’t have to give people I don’t want to my cell phone number. I can play games on it.

And the Result

Talk about your hillbilly jobs. I had to clean out the washer to use it as there was dust and dirt in there as well as everything else because apparently these people don’t clean after themselves. There are so many holes between the plywood you have NO idea. Then the turds did not turn the water back on to my washer which I found out when I tried to use it. Well, no wonder water was flying everywhere. I got the hot water to completely stop dripping but the cold water kept going. Figured I’d do laundry and fix that one after I’m done since it wasn’t dripping on the floor as it was coming from the spigot itself and where the washer water gets dumped anyway from the hose.

After 2 loads though the floor was completely drenched in water and I was like WTF? I thought they must have gotten a hole in the hose somewhere when they were moving all that shit around. Of course I wasn’t going to stop the laundry because I needed clothes for this week and it was outside on cement. I ran through the entire hose, no leaks. Odd. Where’s it coming from then? I checked all the connections, the cold water line is dripping from the back of the washer too. Must really be going to town when it fills. I bought some Teflon tape to wrap around the threads. Cut the cold water completely off after I was done yesterday and letting it dry to fix tonight. If that doesn’t work I’m gonna have to call someone in then I guess.

Back to School

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012 | Personal with 2 Comments

So classes started yesterday. I’m already not feeling it this semester. I actually have to physically show up to one class because it is not offered solely online. It is a mixed mode which means some of it is in the classroom and some of it is online. Okay no problem. Found a class that is after work and is only 1 day a week. I go to said class tonight which is from 6 PM to 7:21 PM. Sit down, log in, check my other classes online waiting on the instructor. 10, 15, 20 minutes go by. Still no instructor. One of the students goes across the hall to see if the instructor is in his office. No instructor. I leave by 6:30 PM. Now, online where you register for classes it is showing that the class is closed which means canceled. :uhh:

One of my other classes requires a prerequisite that I do not have as there were technically 3 options and I have 2 of the requirements done but the instructor was specifically looking for this one class so I have emailed him and am awaiting a response to see if I need to swap classes. I need to get this done before the 20th as I cannot obtain more books on my grant after that.

Then, as I technically can graduate this semester so long as I complete 3 courses including an economics course which I know I will despise I am thinking of doing a double major and now need to talk with my advisor to find out how I can make sure the classes I have already taken can go toward that other degree as well and still graduate this spring.

Christmas Sickness

Friday, December 23rd, 2011 | Health, Personal with 5 Comments

So my boss was ill on Monday and could not get anyone to cover for him in clinic. I was with him all day Monday. I caught his illness :/ It started coming on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning and by Wednesday night I thought I had been run over by a truck. I’m spewing brown phlegm now so hopefully this means it is going away. Just wish the coughing would stop because I feel like I have to pee every time I cough now. Nothing like being sick over the holidays *not*

I’m not sure the weather is helping any either since we have been having high 70s. Yesterday was actually 79. I had the back door open all day long. I opened the back door up this morning too when the dogs wanted out again around 9 AM. It’s still open and I don’t fore see it closing until it gets dark either. I’m staying housebound again today as I still feel like crap although I really want some orange juice so I may run out one time to pick some of that up as well as milk.

Hope you guys don’t get sick over the holidays.

Merry Christmas!

Old Things

Saturday, December 17th, 2011 | Personal with 2 Comments

So this weekend I FINALLY did my Christmas shopping. As a matter of fact, most of it last night because I’m that slack.

I ordered one gift online last week which got shipped to a coworker yesterday while she was on her way to Georgia for her nephews graduation from Georgia Tech so I picked it up on my way home so no one would steal it.

Last night I hit up Wal-Mart for a gift card because that is what my coworker wanted for Christmas (I asked her). I don’t like guessing at things. Usually I get her a Kohl’s gift card.

My other coworker I usually get gift cards or if Avon puts out a special Christmas Barbie I will purchase one of those because she has been collecting them since she was a little girl and has amassed quite a collection which is insured there are so many and quite expensive now due to some of them being so old and in perfect condition. Anywho, I happened upon the B&N website and lo and behold they were offering a Christmas Barbie so I immediately bought it for her and it will be shipped this week.

Two of the physicians I usually buy wine for unless I can find some good Giants garb for one of them which I never scouted this year so they both get a bottle of wine.

Our nurse in the clinic I bought an O’Charley’s gift card from me and a coworker.

Now my boss is always difficult to figure out. He LOVES any electronic essentially. More gadgety more the better. I was unsure what to get him aside from the usual $10 iTunes gift card because he has everything Apple. Upon researching Hoth Cocoa which had Chewbacca I ended up on thinkgeek.com and found a cool iPad joystick so I bought that for my boss and will have to tell him NOT to use the gift card until he gets the package.

Anywhoo, what does all this have to do with the picture of my teeth? I went digging in my closet for the umpteen amount of Christmas cards I have to put the gift cards in and a scarf i’ve been missing and wanted to wear. So unpacking box after box I found an impression of my teeth that was done immediately after I got my braces off back when I was 16/17 years old. The top still look the exact same way but the bottom one does not. One of the teeth have turned inward a bit because I stopped wearing the night guards a LONG time ago. Probably almost immediately after I got the braces off because I didn’t care. Still don’t either. I found some of my old cross stitch stuff I had done. I also found the scarf *bonus*

Y’all have a Happy Holidays!
