Some times life hands you a lemon, other times it squeezes the juice in your eye

I feel like a stupid idiot right now.

I totally ditched you guys for new years and hate myself for it. Cam you believe my parents? the SECOND Tony left out of the driveway, they both said," Well, I didn't know Tony was here to give you a ride, why didn't you go with him?"

CAN YOU BELIVE THAT!?!?!? I WANT TO RIP MY HAIR OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I sat there on the phone begging them to let me go, and they kept saying it was unsafe to drive this late, with the drunks, in the dark, that far, and there is a storm coming on. And then they go and say I should have gone because Tony was here. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGHHH!!!!!!!!!!! I could shoot them both.

If it's any consolation,(however stupid it may sound) As soon as my mom said she didn't feel right about me going, I had a HUGE rush of something inside.(yes, that burning feeling in your bosom. ) that I shouldn't go. Maybe I would distract Tony while he was driving and we'd both crash and die, or maybe I would've said something that split up Toni and her man, or done something to ruin Michelle's and my friendship. whatever the reason, I had that feeling that I shouldn't go and I was sticking to it, I'm sorry. I've had experiences in the past where I regretted not following that gut feeling I had. Once again, I"M SO FREAKING SORRY I DIDN"T COME TONIGHT!! You have no idea how bad I feel right now. Send me hate mail, blackmail me, egg my house, do something so I won't feel so bad about not coming.

Tell ya what. instead of egging my house, I'll make it up to you guys somehow. I'll think of something. I promise. Trust me, I'm hitting myself right now because how mad you guys sounded on the phone.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Do you think I'd rather be at home with my parents on new years? think again. My siste is even at a party this year, so it's just me and my parents. I really did want to come. I swear. I wasn't just pulling one of my,"I don't feel like going so I'll think up an excuse" acts. I'm serious. Sorry guys.

Well, since I haven't updated for a while I'll fill you in on my life the past two weeks. I doubt they are anything exciting compared to Toni and her engagement(CONGRATS!!!!!! ) but I'll try.

I've been working everyday except holidays and been busy with work work work. I guess I'm still not in the adult pattern of working normally. I will one of these days. I'm still just slowly slipping into adult-hood. Anyway, the job is going good. I should be going to SLCC part time in January if all turns out well, which it should. And I'll most likely be taking voice lessons in January through June to keep me even more busy, but it's been something I've wanted to do for a while.
Lets see.....what else. Oh, my cat threw up twice this morning at 4am and 5 am. So much for sleeping in on saturdays.

Oh, I'll fill you on Christmas stuff real quick. I got paid the day before christmas eve, so I was in a mad rush for the stores after work to get presents. I still have four more presents to get and give. I'll probably do that monday on my day off. thank goodness for fridays. I got a lovely bunch of stir fry stuff to add to my collection. lots of utensils, foodstuff, books, and a totally awsome chopstick and place setting set. very oriental looking. I got many many cool books: 2 cookbooks, 3 churchbooks, a yoga book and an awsome scrapbook book from Shell that is being overused already. My mom went a little crazy with my litle collection of tea things. I got teapot stickers, teapot iron-on transfers, a teapot ornament, teapot cards, teapot dishcloth, and lots and lots of tea, and a tea tin. I'm set for life with tea.
My mom also went nunts on my liking for scrapbooking. I finally got a 12x12 scrapbook. leather too. lots of other little things for scrapboooking too. One of my fav gifts was an L.L.Bean Extra Large aloha teal embroidered duffel bag. I can fit in this bag people! IT'S HUIGE! And of course the usual hot cheetos and gushers. ahh yes. you're all wondering what garlic things I recieved aren't you?
Actually you're probably thinking," what is with this sick obsession with garlic this girl has?" Well, I'll show you at the end of the blog with some pics. And I'll add some other Christmas ones too.

ok, ok, I'll update.

but it's going to be short! I am giving up sleep time for an update. See how much I love you people? you are so lucky.

I started my new job on monday (12/12) and I have been super busy. The week before Christmas is the absolute worst time to start a job. Can you say stress? Plus I had three parties. The company party on tuesday, the department party at my bosses house on wednesday, and a birthday party of a girl in the office on thuhrsday. CRAZY! HECTIC! AAAAAAHHHHH!!!

I really like my job though. Awsome people, and it's something I will actually enjoy doing for 8 hours a day without it getting tedious, because it always changes. So far no cute guys or anything though, major downer. All the doctors are old and bald, and the rest is young 27 year old moms up to 50 year old grandmas. so mostly female.

Oh, Karli, (if you read this) Michael (my brother) said he saw you at church today and you're on the missionary counsel with him? coolness. He came home and asked if I knew any karli's with red hair. funny.

I get half a day this friday off, and the next monday off for christmas. I wish it was more. but hey, I need money. I still haven't gone to temple square yet. I'm going to drag my family there this week, and If you guys go any other time, I will also go. Christmas just came way too fast this year. I mean, I was listening to christmas music in November(as Toni would know) and cooking treats and stuff, but not realy shopping or anything. And now, It's in 6 days and I haven't done shopping. Money is the main factor, but stilll, It came too fast.

Arrrgggggggghhhhhhh. A lady in ,my ward trapped me into playing in sacrement meeting ON CHRISTMAS DAY! My dad was going to nake us go to it anyway, But now I have to actually put on makeup, do my hair and wear something decent because I'll be in front of people. I hope no one shows up and they cancel it. As blasphemous as it may sound, I don't you should have to go to church on christmas. I mean, all the adults will have stayed up all night long wrapping last minute presents, and will be dead, and in my house we don't usually start opening until 9, and church starts at 10:30, so it totally clashes with my present opening schedule. Watch, now my christmas tree will catch on fire, and burn all the presents. God will teach me a lesson. Maybe I should delete that last part. oh well, What's said is said.

Ok, ,I've gone into my sleeping time lolng enough, I must go to bed now. I cannot function on 6 hours of sleep, so It's off to bed I go. Tootles!

A severed foot: The ultimate stocking stuffer

Ouch again. I went back to clinic the day after and they took my blood and gave me another TB test shot. Jeez, I'm about to go find myself another job that doesn't require so many shots.
Not only that, but I never realized how much people touch, slap or punch your arms in one day. I crack my knuckles, and no one should care, but my in order to break this habit that I am perfectly fine with, my papa dad, smacks my arm every time I crack a knuckle. The day OF when I got the last two shots, He punched my arm twice! the same arm in the same night! I could hardly hold back the tears it hurt so stinking bad. Then my sister even tapped my arm after that. I was thinking of putting on a big in big bold red letters,
"DON"T TOUCH MY FREAKING ARM!" but decided against it. All is well now though. all shots completed, blood drawn, cat scans, transplants and such are finished.
Ah, I got my new migraine meds today. The possible side effects are(I shall list in matter of greatest fatality inducers) Dizziness, tiredness, drowsiness, rash, itching, slow heart or pulse rate, or shortness of breath. Boy those don't worry me one bit. "hey doc, my hearts been feelin' kind of slow lately, should I be worried?" hhhmmmm.........ya think!?
The thing I'm most worried about is other meds I take(Am I starrting to sound like a hypocondriach, or is it just me?) Today I took my acnes med, my new migraine med, I had a backache and cramps(the girl kind) so I took some midol, and when I got back from seeing Narnia(which is a whole OTHER story) I took two Excedrin. I think I'm going to die from an overdose.
Anyway, on to my Narnia experience. My sister Rachel, my bro Michael and I went to Narnia tonight. We gave ourselves half an hour seeing how it just came out yesterday, and it was a weekend night. We get there at 7:30, get our tickets and go to the theatre. We walk in, and some loser kid is standing there holding a vacuum talking to his buddies. We sit down, arrange ourselves and wait patiently for the show. He comes up to us and says,"Are you here for the show?" Well, Ya, we ARE in a movie theater. "you'll have to wait in the lobby until we're done cleaning" Since when does five star CLEAN their theaters? He wasn't even doing anything! so we get up and go wait in the lobby. 10 minutes later(all while not hearing a single vacuum running) we go back in figuring they'd be done. Nope, still standing there talking with his buddies and laughing like a bunch of trolls. "we're not done yet, go wait outside" he says. So we wait outside the theater not wanting to lose our early seats by going back to the lobby. Not hearing any vacuuming AGAIN for about five minutes, the trolls emerge and their leader, king ugly face, tells everyone(which had accumulated to about 15 people) we have to go stand on the other side of the ticket box. Wanting to strangle this ugly kid, we as a group shuffle over behind the ticket box . His troll friends wander off to steal some consessions candy and he slowy walks up to the ticket box. "Finally" about alf the group said. but no. kind ugly face stands their enjoying every moment of our torture. After an eternity of waiting, he grunts, "tickets please!" Since WHEN does five star ask for your tickets!? Finally our group gives in our want to see the show over wanting to strangle him and we give him our tickets and file in the theater. The floors were flippin' sticky, their was garbage everywhere! What MORONS! Finally the show started. Problem was they had the volume up ALL the way. everyone had their ears plugged, and someone went out to tell them to turn it down. They turned it down a little, but it was still deafening. Hence why I got a headache and took excedrin tonight.

So the moral of this story is, If I die from a drug overdose tonight, it's Five star's fault and I will haunt them forever. Oh and they just suck all around. Especially king ugly face.

Anywho, I must get to bed. Don't want to miss church tomorrow, or do I? Nah, I'll go. Wish me luck on my first week at work on monday! tootles

Which Fantasy/SciFi Character Are You?

Thursday, December 08, 2005

Can you say ouch? say it with me,"Ouch". very good


In the past day and a half, I have had a TB shot, a tetnus booster shot, a hepetitis A shot, a hepetitus shot, New migraine meds, and to top it all off, I peed in a cup. All the paperwork and nonsense for a job is just getting rediculous the days. Who cares if I've had my tetnus within the past three years? Is someone planning on bringing a rabid dog to a pediatrics clinic? heavens. I've been poked and injected with so many meds today and yesterday uyou'd think I was an addict. Not only that, I might have to get a flu shot tomorrow too. Drat. I've had three shots in my right arm and one in my left. But hey, they gave me a snoopy band aid for each one, so I have four snoopy band aids on me rightnow. Am I cool or what?
Yes, I got the job with IHC and start onmonday the 12th. Fun stuff. I'm even getting $1 moroe an hour than we discussed in the interview. Nice little surprise there. I train for one week and then start working with real patients and accounts. Finally. praise Alla, I Rebecca H. H. has a JOB! I"M NOT A BUM ANYMORE!!!!! My next quest and ruler of non-bums is a car. Yes yes, my chariot and horse will no longer satisfy my transportation needs with the growning cost of hay and feed. I must equip myself with a "pile of tin" that nobody knows "what shape it's in". following that small yet needed victory, I will then correct my ever garbage vision. LASIK BABY! you got it, the bec bec is going under the laser to get 20/20 vision like the rest of the perfect people in the world. No more having to sit in the front of a class to see the board, no sitting on the front row of Movie theaters to see the screen, no more having to drive with glasses, no more needing someone to read me the menu to the drive through of McD's because I can't see it. I WILL HAVE CORRECT VISION!!! BWA HA HA HAHA !!!!! MY PLAN IS COMPLETE!!!
.........ahem.......

Anyways......My doctor gave me a new prescription for migraines. Now instead of treating them, I will be preventing them. YAY! Why is everything going so well for me right now? It seems everything is falling into place right now. If only I had a man. :)
Ouch. my arm just started to ache again. three shots in one arm in one day will do a number on you.
Wanna know what my new obsession is? Yoga. that's right. the body contorting, ever relaxing yoga. It started a couple days ago when I realized I coudn't do the splits anymore, which I have been able to do since birth. I've been stretching everyday to achieve it again, when my mom saw me and went out and bought me a yoga book. Gotta love that stuff. I'm a total addict now.

my cat threw up in my closet yesterday. gross

did you guys see how much it snowed yesterday? like 2 and a half inches in one hour. Everthing was quite icy. very dangerous. gotta love snow in December thouogh. I'm keeping my promise to myself, that every year I will build one snowman. I started it last year, and realized how much I missed playing in the snow. Rachel and I went outside and made a huge one while freezing our rears off, but it was fun. When was the last time you made a snow angel?

Must be off to bed now. Weird. I just realized almost all my posts are written at midnight or later. oh well. It's when I get the most done being a night person and all. but that will change next week. I have to join the rest of the world in going to work 8-4 and going to bed at a normal time. thank goodness for weekends.

When cryptography is outlawed, bayl bhgynjf jvyy unir cevinpl


Another sunday come and gone. Thankfully no meetings after church, just a quick tithing settlment and off to home I came. yippeee.
I'm still waiting to hear back on the job for the patient accounts. They sent an email last frriday asking for my SSN to check references, so hopefuly that means I got it. I'll be expecting a phone call soon!
I watched the first presidency Christmas devotional tonight. Good music, and good talks. good all around.
Have any of you heard the song, "Lux Aeterna"? It is a gorgeous song. Kind of a chant/religious song where the sopranoes go to like a high B which is incredible. I could never get higher than an F without screeching my vocal chords out of my throat. ouch. If I can I'm going to take private voice lessons in January while taking choir at school. I miss singing so much. Viola too. But I'll be in orchestra, so no worries.
Must run and get to bed. I'm forcing myself to get to bed before 1am so I don't die once I start my new job. Tootles

The weather is here. Wish you were beautiful



Ahh. the after Thanksgiving blues and the transition into the Christmas season. I just found out they are going to have the Candy windows downtown this year! YAY! I was so upset when they stopped the tradition a couple years ago. Can you believe I didn't see the lights downtown last year? yep. I broke my tradition. My family just didn't have the time. But I am definately going this year, even if it's by myself.
I went to the mall yesterday with my mom and sister. I hate christmas shopping with no money. I don't start my job until monday, so if they hold my check the first two weeks, I'll probably be giving everyone their presents a couple weeks late. You'll get them though! My sister is getting her ears pierced this month, and so we stopped at a couple jewelry shops and checked out earrings. My mom probably bought 6 pair of earrings for my sister. She never did that for me! not fair. But I noticed her looking at things I had asked for, so it's all good.
I woke up this morning with a cat staring at my face. He was cold and wanted under the blankets. Later when I got home, he was sitting on the heat vent in my mom's room. Poor cold kitty. The other cat, Joey, just sleeps on pillows all day. Just her head though, just like a human. funny creatures cats are.
We are having a thanksgiving dinner today. We dodn't really enjoy it at my aunts house, and my mom bought everything for a turkey dinner with all the sales going on. So we are having ours tonight. YAY! I was even thinking about going out to the shed and bringing in all the Christmas decorations and making the house look festive. I wanted to put lights up on the house outsided, but since it snowed, it's kind of cold. I still want to though.
I'm supposed to find out this week if I got the other job at IHC or not. I hope so. they have really good benefits, a good atmosphere, and right in the middle of downtown. I love downtown. Lots of excitement and things happening all the time. If I don't get this job as a Patient Service Rep, then I'll go to the one at shred pro. Either way I'll have a job. So all is well with the world.
Well, I must be off to help with the turkey dinner and peel some tators for mumsy. Tootles to ya'll

The Early google days


I have a JOB! I called back to ask the manager a couple questions, and he asked if I could start on Monday of next week. YAY!!!!! I am so excited or this job, because it has room to advance up, and It pays a ton! Now I can get everyone really good presents for Christmas. Woot Woot.
I went to walmart and Reams this morning to shop for thanksgiving stuff. the only thing we're bringing to my aunts house is squash and apple juice, but my mom bought a whole cart load of food because she, "couldn't pass up such good deals". Heaven forbid. She even bought a 20 lb. turkey for cryin' out loud. She bought over $200 worht of food today. My mom is crazy when it comes to shopping.
Oh, I saw Michelle's sister, Kim at Reams too. Just a side note :)
I love Eggnog. I love it so much that I drank an entire quart of it in three hours yesterday. Make that two quarts, because I add milk to it to double it and dillute it. Yes yes, I love eggnog. It's sad you only see it in stores around the holidays.
It's fun going shopping with my mom around christmas. She never knows what to get me(except garlic stuff) so When I'm with her, I point stuff out to her and she puts it in the cart and says, "you didn't see that". It takes all the surprises out of Christmas, but hey, I'm getting the EXACT thing I want. you know, when they get you something close to what you want, and you like it, but you'd still rather have the exact thing? or is it just me? I dunno.
I must go and clean my room now. And I'm going to hang Christmas lights up in my window. Maybe I can convince my sister to help me put some outside too. We used to hang them up every year when i was little, , but now we never do it. I need to start the tradition again. every house needs Christmas lights at Christmas. It should be a law. I agree with Karli though, people shouldn't turn them on until after Thanksgiving. that's just stupid.

Ask me about microwaving cats for fun and profit


I've been working on a letter to my brother for Christmas. I can't beleive that he'll be home next summer, and MIchelle will be home in FOUR months! That went by very very fast for Michelle.
I have a job interview tomorrow at noon. I'm kind of nervous, because I hate job interviews(who doesn't?) but not nervous at the same time, because I know I'll do ok, and if I don't get the job it's not meant to be. But I hope it's meant to be becasue they pay $13-$17/hr. wouldn't that be a nice surprise in my checking account. :)
So this week is thanksgiving and my family is getting together at my aunt's house. I do not want to go. Our family is the misfit family on my dad's side. We don't live on the east side, we don't have a HUGE house, we don't have a jacuzzi bathtub, and we're not snobs. So, they don't like us. Kind of like that saying,"Can you love, yet hate someone at the same time? of course, it's called relatives." But, I will make sure to bring card games to keep Rachel and Me entertained, and then I will call Michelle and we'll compare who's thanksgiving was crappier. So, it's all good in the long run.
I think I've corrupted my little sister Rachel. We are having a contest to see who can lose the most weight by her birthday December 20th. We have both weighed ourselves at least fifty time in the last four days. Probably not the most healthy thing in the world. So far I've fluctuated between 6 lbs, and she has between 3. I have no idea what that means. I have been lifting weights ever night though. I just need to do some cardio with that. Hope I win, because then she has to do the dishes for me for a month. I really hope I win.
I went to the dentist for the first time in probably three years. I didn't have a single cavity(YAY!) but did have a lot of tartar and calcium around my gums. They had to use the metal scrapey hook and my gums were bleeding like crazy because the girl kept catching my gumms along with the deposits. All is well now though. I have brushed and flossed daily since I've gone, and been mor regular with whitening too. YAy, happy teeth. Sometime this week I have to go in for a consultaion to get y wisdo teeth out. I' not looking forward to that. At least I'll be asleep for that though. I' not looking forward to looking like a chipunk for three days. No siree.
Ok people, I need Ideas for Christmas. I have something from Michelle already, But I need Toni, Tony and Joe still. Si give me Ideas!
I'm going to make a pumpkin roll and some some apple turnovers(woot woot, apples!) so, i must be signing off now. tootles to the world.

I agree

What year did Jesus think it was?

My brother comes up stairs and askas me if I want to go running with him at the track. I said "sure" and thought, hey I can only burn calories. Wrong-o bucko. We both Jogged one lap, and then starrted to die. Not because we were tired, but because the cold air was slashing at our lungs with daggers and swords. Kind of painful. After one lap we walked home with our jackets covering our mouths so we could get some warm air. We both collapsed on the couch gasping for warm air the second we came in the house. I guess we're going to get a pass to the rec center from now on so we don't die. I feel better about having done some exercise today.

I made baked apples the other day. The y turned out delicious! We put vanilla ice cream on them. Very very good stuff. Yesterday my mom trtried some of my herbal tea. She thought it was disgusting. She said it tasted like it was made from a bunch of spices. Well, ya Mom. They're called "tea leaves". Anyway, I'm the only one in my fam who like the stuff. Not even my little sis Rachel who likes everything out of the ordinary. Some days I just want someone to sit down with me and talk over a cup of tea.

HARRY POTTER COMES OUT FRIDAY!!!! WOOT WOOT!!!! Rachel and I would go to see it at midnight, but she has school friday. so we are going to see it that evening. YAY!!! I've been waiting for it FOREVER! I am a pround Harry Potter freak. I love the books and have read them all at least four times each. YAY! HARRY POTTER!

Tonight I'm making apple dumplings. Yes, still have millions of apples, and I, unlike the rest of my family, am determined not to let them go to waste. Besides, it improves my cooking skills by using all brand new recipes. remember the french rolling pin I was talkking about a couple posts ago? It has totally warped and is now unfit for use. It's completely warped so the center is an arch. My mom threw away all the papers and info for it, so we can't return it. I DIDN"T EVEN GET TO USE IT YET! I am sooooo mad. I think it came from virginia. Would clmate make a difference? what kind of climate differences are their between utah and virginia! GEEZ!!! stupid rolling pin. wait...no, stupid manufacturer of the rolling pin that lives in virginia. A thousand curses on his home and dog. Jerk.

Well, I must retire for the evening and attempt some apple dumplings. wish me luck! Oh, I watched Oprah today with my mom and sister. I now know what kind of bra and jeans to wear. thank goodness for Oprah. what would the world be without her? (sarcasm, sarcasm)
Tootles for today

It was a Hot cheetos kind of day


I sit here at my computer eating my faithful friend Mr. hot cheetos. What a friend, to let me eat him. I was awake half the night because of my retarded cats. they kept fighting, puking, peeing on my carpet, howling, clawing and running around ballistically. I eventually blocked of my room(I couldn't close the door because I don't have one) so theycould come in. But then they crawled and clawed up my blockade to make sure I didn't fall asleep for more than half an hour at a time. I slept in until 1PM today because I didn't get any sleep last night. i wanted to strangle them last night. And guess what they are BOTH doing this very minute? SLEEPING! ON MY BED!Stupid cats.
Yesterday I put lotion on my feet afte my shower. I didn't realize how much I had been neglecting it. They are nice and smooth today. You lucky little pampered feet you.
I've been listening to Brian Setzer's Boogie Woogie Christmas on my computer. Cool Christmas Music. you should hear it. Greenday should put out a Christmas Album. that would be cool.
I went to Cyprus the other day to play in the orchestra and take my sister to lunch. HIgh school kids are very small, immature, and stupid. I really hope we were never like that. I never want to be a high school teacher. maybe elementary, but nothing else. OOOUUUCHH!! My elbows are very dry and cracked, so I put Arm and Hammer medicated lotion on. Big mistake. Holy BURN! youch. It must physically burn away the dead cracked skin and give you a whole new layer of epidermis. sheesh.
I must go now and bake some apples. Yes the same ones I had a million of before. Hey Toni and Michelle, did you guys make a pie yet? I hope you put the apples to better use then my family has. They are probably going to get thrown out soon. oh well.
Must get going now. Have to go to Walmart and buy some carpet cleaner for the cat puke on my floor before I can bake apples. tootles

Sometimes.........

I woke up this morning in a good mood, motivated to do a lot today and get things done. I startted my cleaning some spills in our fridge with our steam cleaner, because everyone else in my family are slobs and don't care. I ended up taking out all the food and and cleaning the whole thing. But that's okay. Now the fridge looks brand new and all the food is organized and the rotten stuff thrown out. Next I vacuumed the living room, aven got down on all fours and used the hose to get around the edges. So now the whole house looks sparkly clean all because of me cleaning it. Then the UPS truk came and dropped of a package my mom ordered for me. She got me a rolling pin. A french style one that I love. But she said I couldn't have it until I did some cleaning around the house because it wasn't cheap. She had even seen me cleaning all morning without being asked. I WAS FRIGGIN TIRED! Cleaning is rigorous work when you do it non stop and you do a good job at it. I wasn't slackin' off with this. Anywho, she was serious and said I couldn't have it till I cleaned even more. So I threw my hands up and said forget it. And then as I walked away I grumbled the not so nice words under my breath at her. It makes me so mad just becasue I woke up in such a good mood and was doin a toon of things, and then my mom ruins my whole attitude with one sentence. GGGGGGGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I'm in my room typing out my frustrations because no one else would want to hear them anyway. Seriously, I don't know how I survived without a blog before. oh wait. a journal, duh. Stupid moment.
I got a bunch of Christmas Cd's from the Library the other day and just finished copying them all to my computer. I can't help it. I love Christmas music.(As you know Toni) I have about five of them on my Puter now. I'm such a Christmas Junkie. And it's only November. It's Walmart's fault ya know. If thet didn't put out Christmas stuff so soon it wouldn't get me in the mood. Walmart seriously has an effect on my life. I go their at least once every two weeks without fail, but usually once every week. Same with Subway. mmmmm. I'm hungry.
OH! I got churros when I was at Walmart! I'm going to make them tonight. yuum yum.
Well, I'm going to eat something for lunch and come clean my room. I don't think I can stand to be around anyone right now. I think I'll take Toby on a walk too, to get out of the house. Hope all your Days turn out better than mine has. Tootles

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die



I went to Rachel's Senior Granite Youth Concert tonight. I was quite impressed. They had some difficult songs that they played quite well for high school students. The last song they performed was Bachenalle from Samson and Delilah. I've played that in Granite Youth, Utah Youth Orchestra, and Utah Youth Symphony. It brings back such memories. Makes me want to play in an orchestra again.
I've been looking at SLCC's class schedule's for the Spring semester next year (2006). I have a whole schedule planned out in case I go. I figured I can work all of November and December, Hopefully get a music scholarship and my pell grant, go to school while working part time and Buy a car in January, and In July move to Orem and transfer to UVSC for the Fall Semester. I'd have a car, and be financially stable. I think that's what I', going to try for right now. If I get the Job with my Brother at Unisys I'll be making $10/hr. So If I get that job everything will work out.
Right now I'm wearing the shirt Michelle gave me that was too big for her. Very cute shirt. Very femme. Halloween was fun and I was glad I got to stay overnight for another day. Michelle, Toni and Joe are crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
Yesterday I gave Michelle and Toni about half of the apples we got from a lady in our ward. Tonight my Grandma came to Rachel's concert and said she had something for us when it was over. She gave us a Huge turkey(that she had lying around) and TWO FULL BAGS OF APPLES. she has two apple trees at her house, and she decided to pick them yesterday. So, once again we have a million apples in our kitchen. I need to find some serious apple recipes and do some cooking for the neighbors. HOLY APPLES!
I feel like playing my viola. But everyone's asleep so I can't. Darn
I suppose I should go to bed so I don't wake up with a migraine like I did this morning for staying up all night reading last night. Goodnight to all, I will continue my adventures tomorrow. Oh, Toni, If I haven't sent you the pictures from Orem by the time you have read this, send me an email to remind me because I have forgotten. Note to self: Make Picture CD for Shell too.

shell and me eating some leaves. What else can college students afford to eat?
looking into my future, while leaving the past behind

Wednesday, October 26, 2005

I went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time". So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance

I have not much to write about today. Just some jokes and a VERY very VeRy vErY VerY VERY funny music video some college kids did I think You'll enjoy. So, on with the jokes.

A lady came up to me on the street and pointed to my suede jacket. "You know a cow was murdered for that jacket?" she sneered. I replied in a psychotic tone, "I didn't know there were any witnesses. Now I'll have to kill you too


Sometimes when I feel like killing someone, I do a little trick to calm myself down. I'll go over to the person's house and ring the doorbell. When the person comes to the door, I'm gone, but you know what I've left on the porch? A jack-o-lantern with a knife stuck in the side of its head with a note that says "You." After that, I usually feel a lot better, and no harm done

One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. "Oh, no," I said, "Disneyland burned down." He cried and cried, but I think deep down he thought it was funny

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die

I love to go down to the schoolyard and watch all the little children jump up and down and run around yelling and screaming. They don't know I'm only using blanks."

And Now for the funny video you need to send to all your friends.

Tum diiddly um dum tum

Geez Tony! I was gone for Five days. What would you do if my computer died?

Anywho, I just spent the last five days in Orem staying with Crazy Toni, odd Michelle, funny Juilia, and sweetie pumpkin Joe(Remember michelle?) It was so nice to get away from my family and the house for that long. The second i walked into the door, my dad asked me to hang up some stuff he wwas cleanig. Noteven a single hello from anyone. then my mom told me to put my stuff way and come help. She said it in a tone like she had been asking me fro hours to do it. I almost ran out the door after Toni to take me back with her. Then we had the missionaries over for donner. You would have thought we were ging to feed an army! my mom bought three boxes of taco shells, two packages of tortillas, five, count em', five tomatoes, two heads of lettuce and about four pounds of beef. can you believe that? all for SEVEN people! we could've invited all the missionaries in this ZONE for goodness sake. my mom is interesting. When I told my parents I applied at some jobs while I was in Orem and that if I got any of them, I was going to move, my dad said, "Just don't let the door hit you on the way out". They must seriously want me gone or something. Tomorrow my parents are leaving, so i guess it won't be so bad.
Rachel and I went to see Corpse Bride tonight. Very cool show. Funny too. Especially where they have the parts from Lord of the Rings. Very funny and well done. I love the music for it too. Mainly the piano parts. very cool. My poor kitty Jack missed me while I was gone. As soon as I came in my room, he ran up to me and would'nt stop purring or leave me alone. So sad. My mom said he sat on the corner of my bae and stared at my pillow everyday I was gone. Poor Jacky-poo.
I got some VERY cool pictures while I was in Orem. NAmely from "facial night" that are quite entertaining that I will post Tomorrow. also some cool ones of Viola's, and lots of beautiful autumn leaves. I'm tired seeing how Michelle kept me up all night last night yapping my ear off :) (Actually, I did most of the talking) So I should get to bed so I can write lots tomorrow. Oh, something wierd before I forget, One of the missionaries that came tonight has a brother in my sisters' mission, that she went to the MTC with. Very small world. II'll write more tomorrow and post lots of pictures. tootles.

HASH(0x8d83b8c)
You chose hazel eyes.That means you are a very sweet, thoughtful person.
You are gulliable too, so it's hard for you to
sometimes say no to situations you don't like.
You're too worried that you might hurt
someone's feelings that a lot of the time you
don't think about what you want. You are also
very generous. You love to hang out with your
friends, and laugh at every little
"funny" thing.

The Eye color personality test
brought to you by

People who ask "Can I ask you a question?" Didn't really give me a choice, did ya there, buddy?

First of all I would like to congratulate my buddy Toni on her new car. WOOT WOOT! Everybody should go out and buy a new car. I sure it makes you happy.
Right now I am listening to a cd of Relaxation music for Piano. It's not very relaxing. It makes me want to strain my brain to hear the complexity of it to see if I could play it. Or I'll conduct it in my head, or something like that. Darn you classical music. I bought a CD today. It's another LDS a cappela group called "Octapella". I heard their CD while at missionary imporium with my mom. I needed a new church CD to listen to on sundays, because I was getting sick of all my old ones. They are really good singers, and have a spirit inviting repertoir. The CD is called worship. you should get it.
We also went to bed bath and beyond, or BBB as I call it. I can't belive how many kitchen gadgets they have. for instance....a garlic holder, a garlic press, a garlic baker, and a garlic scent remover. Ahhh. Garlic. gotta love the stuff. Man, my husband is going to hate me. I'm going to have bad breath all day, every day. Oh well, at least I'm a good cook :)
well, I must exercise for the night, and get to bed before.....too late. anywho, goodnight my funny looking friends!

well, not THAT big


Today I experimented with my hair and put it in velcro rollers after I took a shower. Holy volume! Where have velcro rollers been al my life!? I LOVE these things. I wash my hair, put in some gel, and put the curlers in, and WHAMO! volume and curls galore. I did some pictures, so I suppose I'll post them when I find the connector to my camera
I bought some egnog tonight at Walmart. MMMM. I love that stuff. you have to add milk though, or it's toothick and reminds me of egg yolks which makes me want to gag. speaking of gagging, I threw up this morning. I lid in bed awake from 2-8am tossing and turning with a migraine and a stomach ache, when I stood up to take my migraine medicine, and BOOM, upchuck time. Good thing I threw up before taking the Relpax though. that stuff is expensive, and I wasn't about to go digging through my puke to find it. Anyway, so I took the relpax and crashed into bed until 2pm. I only got four hours of sleep mind you. So sleeping till 2 wasn't so bad, especially cause I was sick. So pretty much the whole day got wasted from being sick. I did go with my mom to Walmart though around 9pm. I was feeling much better then. Even well enough to yell at Rachel for using my stuff. So I guess I recovered pretty nicely.
I Also bought some workout pants that match my Jacket. Sometimes new clothes just make you feel better. (Emotionally anyway)
Well, church tomorrow, and it's kind of late, so i should go to bed now. I'll have plenty of time to write after church tomorrow. So until then, tootles!

Remember when flip flops first came into style? and how hard it was to find some at stores? Now look at today and how much that has changed. Crazy. flip flops are everywhere. It's interesting to see how styles change, fads are introduced, and how the world in general is progressing into the furture.Ten years ago could you imagine someone suggesting that mcDonalds sell a Salad? You'd be laughed at and thrown out of the room. Now a days with so much focus on health and all the obesity in the world, salads are a common thing. Along with Atkins, Southbeach, and all the other millsions of diets going on for the world to lose weight. Interesting how our own thoughts and perceptions of the world change as we get older in life too. Five years ago I didn't really care about the way I looked. I was worried about practicing for my viola lesson that week or what the school was serving for lunch that day. Now I'm constantly thinking about My future,, school, work, money, relationships, the way I look, and the way I act towards people.If Only I could go back to Jr High, or elementary when i didn't have to think so much, and I enjoyed a more stressfree life.
I think I'm going to practice My viola and pianio for a bit. Do something productive intead of sit around like th lazy bum that I am. I'll write again tonight and hopefully be more entertaining.

Hmph


I am back upstairs in my old room, but now I am sharing it with Rachel, as soon as she actually brings all her junk and bed upstairs. I seriously do not understand how Michelle and Toni can both cram all their stuff in that small of a room, and fit both beds in like that. I can barely fit inour bunkbed with our stuff. You guys amaze me. But until Rachel actually moves up here, I've got my own room for about a week or so, and I am thoroughly enjoying the alone time. mainly because I can actually see my floor, and I know where my stuff is. i love being in a clean room, It's like going to a spa without the massage, it's the atmostphere, very calming and relaxing.
I've been away from the computer for the past week, because I have to rewire the network connection upstairs(which has to go through the ceiling) and will take a while. So for now I've been using my Dad's spare laptop. I can't stand laptop keyboards, so I connected my desktop one to the laptop. much nicer. Now I just need to bring up my mouse And I'll neer need my coputer again! well, not really I love my computer, and Love all the software I've installed too, so never mind about that last comment.
Right now I'm listening to all the yahoo music videos while I type. Most of them are ok and Several I want to buy, but this one by Shakira called "La Totura" Is quite annoying. One, I can't understand it, and the backround drums and noise are driving me nuts, Two, she barely sings in he whole thing anyway, just a bunch of taco benders chanting in the backround. Anyway, the song is over now, so I'll stop complaining. Crap, now Hilary Duff is on. *retch* Seriously, this girl needs to learn to sing, talk and just be a normal person. She reminds me of the old version of "Clueless" that used to be on TGIF when we were really little. You know, the girl ditz that always wore pink and chewed gum all the time? Pass me the tranquilizer gun PLEASE. better make it a double dose just to be safe.
I did a Solo in a relief society thing last night. My lovely accompanist ( who I asked to play an hour before it started and I would have sucked without her) decided to go a million times slower than we rehearsed it . The song was "As I have loved you" from the children's hymn book. I did the melody the first verse, and the second verse I did the Descant. Ya, Michelle, look how freaking high that gets(for a viola anyway) I learned it quick, and played it PERFECT. (Can you say lucky?) Anyway, she went so slow I almost turned around and said, "pick up the pace ya slow poke, it's a primary song, not a funeral march!" But, being the completely unjudging, kind, forgiving, eternal-perspective-minded-daughter-of-God (and ever so humble I might add)person that I am, I kept playing. And I will probably give her a thank-you note and a plate of cookies for doing it on such short notice for me, BUT STILL!!!! THAT SLOW?!?!?! It could drive you MAD!!! Just one of those moments, Ya know?
Anyway, I must log of for now, I have some movies to watch while my mom is alseep so she won't freak out. (*GASP* PG-13? I'm going to Hell In a handbasket)
So happy trails for now my feathered friends. Tootles

My new hair cut, Does my nose look yellow to you in this picture? I think It's the light

I chopped off my HAIR!

Yes, I was totally getting sick of my hair, and I had a coupon for great clips, so WHAMO, I cut my hair. I will post a before and after photo, don't worry. It is very short, but I love it. I have this "sweep" going across my forehead that I absolutely adore. I told her to give me lots of layers and some bangs just to shake things up a bit. My mom and I went to Walmart and got a bunch of food and snacks for conference, we always make it a big family get together type thing. I couldn't stop looking in the freezer doors atmy reflection. Yes, I love my hair.
I made a fur pillow today for my bed. It has two tassels on each end and looks like a ginormouse tootsie roll. still cool though. I will write tomorrow after conference, i need to go to bed so I won't fall asleep during conference. I LOVE MY HAIR!

Ah, what the Heck, I'll update

I'm trying to figure out why I capitolized Heck like that in the title. Am I using it to replace the word Hell? Like fudge, dang, shoot and heck, should we really be saying them? Isn't it like carrying around non-alcoholic beer? or a temporary tatoo? I know I sound like my mother right now, but The thought just came to me from women's conference about Eternal perspective, just a sec, I'll go find it..........ok, found it She said, " Look through the lense of eternity, you gain a new and better perspective" I know, not earth shaking or anything, but in the next life, will we ever say some of the stuff we do now? will we wear(if anything) what we wear now in the presence of god? or would we be ashamed? would we watch the shows we watch if God was sitting next to us? I think not. Oh well, something to think about.
I'm mad right now. I ordered my shoes on saturday and paid two bucks extra to get them shipped two day air. And yes I even calculated that the weekend into that. It is now wednesday evening and I have no shoes. If I don't get them tomorrow, Payless is getting a very long Irate email from me. *grrrrrr*
Oh, I almost forgot. The stake president calleed us today and asked Randy and my parents to come in. RANDY LEAVES MONDAY FOR GERMANY!!!!! It came SO fast! He'll be out until july of next year. they extended his mission so we won't see him for TEN MONTHS! just a side note

A mask that Michelle watched being carved in the rice fields in the Phiillipines, and two little statues
Toby with his lump
Toby recouperating after surgery
toby showing us his belly withoutt the lump
my shoes that are on the way!

Today is such a nice day, I wish I had a job so I could call in sick.

Sorry readers, it's been a while since I last updated. I've been devoting a lot of time to starting my own private blog, updating our shared blog, and baby sitting. Their is a lady in my ward about to pop out a baby who really needs help watching her hyper-active three year old and I've been helping out. Also, a lady who I babysat for three or four years ago called me up and needed an emergency babysitter today and tomorrow, her usual one bailed out. Lucky I don't have job:) I'm only getting $5 an hour, but hey, It's money right?

We got an email from my sister's Mission home, saying she was out of the hospital, still in bed, but on the mend. Very weird having something like that happen to a family member, but on the other side of the world. We also got a package she sent by boat about five months ago. It had a bunch of cool statues and a Nativity carved out of wood. I'll post some pics of them.

I went to the SLCC singles ward with Bec B. and Cindy G. yesterday. Very huge, tons of people. The girls in relief society were friendly, but in sacrement, everyone just acted like snobs. I didn't really like it. Oh! I saw my 9th grade seminary teacher there! Do any of you guys remember Sis. Hunter? She is in that ward! I didn't get to talk to her, but I will probably go next week and try to find her. Wow, that was a long time ago. wait a minute, Toni, weren't you in that class with me? With the "weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth"? IT WAS YOU! yeah, Sis. Hunter is in that singles ward. You'll have to come sometime so we can talk to her. cool.

I ordered some shoes from payless online store on saturday. They are awsome! they kind of look like bowling shoes, but who cares, right? Last winter I wore flip flops in the snow, this year I will try and force myself to wear something that will keep my feet dry, and these will help, heck, I'll post a picture of them too! I'm in a picture-y mood today, What can I say?

Poor Tobster got his lump removed last week. He's feeling fine now, buit when he first came home he looked like he was in so much pain. I'll post some before and after pictures of him too. Jack(my siemese kitty) threw up on Rachel's chair this morning. It's his favorite place to sleep, and I guess he ate a little too much, he is old ya know. Now Rachel won't let him sleep on it and he's been walking around the house howling all day. He does that a lot. My cat is interesting.

Well, I have two other blogs to update and lots to do, so I have to go post all the pics for you now. Tootles!

I went to Cyprus today


I had to pick up Rachel from school today. Holy MEMORIES! That school will forever stay in my memory as part of the best times in my life. I even got to see Ness again who is sporting the ever popularMullet again. :) Man, high school kids are short! Very weird.
Last night Randy and I drove up 8400 close to the copper mine is to see the Arora Borealis. thay said on the news there was a 70% percent chance of seeing it. U huh. We saw nothing but extremely polluted air down town, lots of stars, a very red mars, amd a plethera of mosquitoes. It was fun though. I brought my binoculars and checked out the moon. Kind of exciting. Very cold though. i had a jacket on and was still freezing. Luckily there was a wool blanket it in the trunk that kept me toasty. I need to get a telescope sometime, because Magna is the perfect place to see stars with the mountains so close and all.
Well, i gave in to two of my temptaions at Walmart yesterday, wait make that three. I bought a box of gushers(of course), I bought a new purse(Purse addiction is hereditary in my family), and two notebooks. Very cute notebooks I might add. I write a lot and need paper so I buy a lot. more than i probably need, but I will never run out of notebooks in my lifetime. But the purse thing is kind of getting out of hand. I've decided I can't buy a nwe purse unless i get rid of one of my old ones. right now I have a total of 9 purses. But I use everyone of them, so no one can complain.
Sorry about having to add word verification in the comments, I seem to get a lot of spam coments in my blogs, so its for the better good of, well.....me.
I had subway for lunch today. just thought I'd make your mouth water.
Well, I've amazingly run out of things to say, so you get a reletively short blog for the day, but hey, i update more than any of you guys, right?

Gotta love Hinkley's expressionin this one!

A good thing

I watchd the new martha stewart show today. It's more like a talk show than the old show Before she went to prison. can you belive she was preparing meals she had IN prison? You'd think someone that famous with a reputation to uphold would steer clear of anything in relation to prison, but now it is going to become a socially accepted thing in hollywood. Boggles my mind.
Does anyone else in this world have a childhood candy? you know, the candy that you had growing up, and then your teenage years it stopped and you forgot about it, and now you find it and go nuts? Well, I have that thing with lemon drops. My mom would buy them all the time, and the other day I found some in Walmart(gotta love that store, even if it is taking over the world) and am sucking on a peice as I speak, well....type i guess. I miss my childhood. Elementary school was a blast. I had a ton of friends and loved going to school. ahhh, the good ol days. they seem to be getting fartther and farther away. Speaking of, we're almost all out of our teen years, can you believe it? I guess the TonIY's will be the first ones to go. the big ol 20. Not like you turn in to a pumpkin on your 20th b-day, it's just officially saying you aren't a vrainless teenager anymore and now you have to act like it.
I hate eyelash curlers. part of the little plastic strip on mine somehow moved, so when I last curled my eyelashes, it chopped them in half. They look completely rediculous. They are growing back steadily though, and I make sure and us e plenty of mascara to make up for the loss. I'll just end up buying a new one and using it once the lashes grow back. What we women do for beauty. *sigh*
I have a crazy cool lamp. It has music notes on the shade, and the base is a saxaphone player leaning on a bass all shaped out of metal. I love music looking stuff. My whole house is going to be full of music junk.
You know how some people concentrate better while listening to music? I CAN"T. I can't listen to music while doing homwwork or writing in my blog or anything. It distracts me. i focus on the music and make comments to myself about how this guy gets flat on his high notes, his vibrato is to distanced, and how the chord progression is dull. Some of you guys know exactlyu what I'm talking about. So, in other words, I always write my blogs in silence because I would accomplish nothing with the music on.
Oh, Michelle! and Joe, guess what music ness gave the orchestra? Greensleeves(yes the SAME one we played) kings of orient(yes the SAME one we played) and eine klein a nachtmusic(yes the SAME one we played) can you believe that? do all music teachers do that? Karel did, now Ness. what is with these teacher? you'd think they would get sick of hearing the same music year after year. BORING!
anywho, Oh, Rachel made Sr. granite Youth Symphony and starts rehearsal tomorrow. Lucky. I wonder what chair she'll be. My little sis, following in my footsteps*sniff*
My mom is making some sort of egg noodle, mushroom thingy for dinner. Blech. Sometimes I am just not in the mood to eat. but I do it anyway. No wonder I'm bulging at the seams. Over the past couple of years I've decided what foods I do and don't like. And if someone makes the food I don't like, why should I eat it if I'm bot going to enjoy it? Take fish for instance, I hate it. We went out for dinner one time for family night and my mom chose skippers. I sat in the car a nd read because i wasn't about to eat something just because it was there, I wasn't hungry, and the thing was probably 5,000 calories. i didn't care that the whole family was eating it and I wasn't, I just wasn't going to eat it. I may sound like a stubborn snob, but think about it, why would you eat something if you'r not going to enjoy it even if everyone around is? Makes sense to me.
You know, everyone in my family bugs me about writing in a blog and how it's a wasteof time, but it really helps me sort out my fellings and give me a sense of relief once I publish my blog . Just to know that someone somewhere will read how my day went and how I was feeling, it makes me feel better.
I had a slim fast today. not because I use it as a diet, i just like the taste. It's like a chocolate shake, but one that won't kill me faster oddly enough. Sure it has all my vitamins and calcium for the day, but so did the cheetos, chicken, and smoothie I had with it. kind of defeats the purpose of drinkning one in the first place, oh well.
Yuck, my mom just started cooking onions. makes want to cry.(because they taste so bad of course)
My mom just asked me to go with my dad to drop off a movie at Reams. I a in my pajama's, haven't showered yet, and would turn people to stone if I went out in public like this. Seriously though, I just don't hink it's appropriate to go out in public in PJ's and slippers. You should only wear those kind of things at home. Kind of Jr. High-sh I think. I guess I've been "oh-so-proper" since I had a lesson in relief society about we should be wearing our absolute best when going to church because we're inGod's house and should wear the absolute best clothing we own, which doesn't happen to include flip flops. I haven't wron flip flops to church since then. And when i go to the temple flip flops aren't evn an option. as are jean skirts. Sorry, too casual for God, and slippers are to casual for the public. Ok, I'm done with my ranting and raving. time to update my other blogs and stop running at the mouth here. Tootles.

bikes bikes bikes

I have been doing the whole ten mile bike ride a day thing with Randy for the past three weeks or so and have been doing fine with it. We go up cemetary hill daily as part of the "regime" too. We started on our way up when all of a sudden my lungs started aching. not like my asthma attack kind of ache, but a scary "I-feel-lke-I'm-dying" kind of ache. I got off my bike and practically collapsed onto the ground. I then proceded to puke my guts out till my organs were empty, and started to hyperventilate and my hands tightened up and I couldn't uncurl my fingers. Crazy eh? Randy stopped and told me how to breathe to stop hyperventilating(It happenss to him a lot for some reason, he usually passes out though) after about fifteen minutes I felt better and could breathe and stand again. We went home and I promptly collapsed again on the couch of exhaustion. Do you know how hard it is to ride two miles right after throwing up and hyperventilating? You should try it some time. Anywho, I felt better after a short nap, and even managed to go the last five miles that same evening. Randy and I went again today and all seemed just fine. I don't know what the deal was yesterday.
Michelle's (the sister one) mission president called us this morning to tell us our missionary was in the hospital. Apparently she has Dengue fever. Similarly known as "Bone breaking disease" because it feels like your bones are breaking. luckily though they detected it right away and sent her to the hospital and she might get released in a week or so when her blood electrolites have gone up. She's had a fever of 102 since saturday. very scary. They said she should recover and be able to go back to the field in a couple weeks or so. The only way you can get the disease is through mosquitoes, and with all the humidity there, It's a very comon thing. If you could just keep my big sis in your prayers.
Speaking of sis's, my little sis is DRIVING! She is going to drive tomorrow in drivers ed. Do you remember being in drivers ed? my little baby sister is going to be in full control of a moving peice of deadly machinery! YIKES!
Well, I need to go update my other blogs and a bunch of other stuff. I'm going to post all my recent wedding photos also. enjoy!
