My wounded feet Posted by Hello

My poor Feet

Not much going on in my life that you guys would actually enjoy hearing, but I'll tell you anyway, cause I'm bored. I got four new pairs of shoes from payless yesterday. I wore one of them today because I wanted to show them off. and what do you know, I had to walk home from work. Normally this wouldn't be a problem, except I was wearing brand new shoes, sandals, to be exact. Keep in mind Alorica is less than a mile from my house. You would think my feet could handle it. NO FREAKING WAY! by the time I got to Smiths, my feet were bleeding. BLEEDING PEOPLE! I couldn't walk anymore! My sandals had rubbed off the skin on the side of my feet, and were rubbing into my raw flesh. ow. I stopped in Sally's beauty supply to check the damage. I ended up getting blood on their floor, and buying a french manicure set.(I couldn't help myself) I am so glad I finally bought a cell phone. I called home and my brother barely walked in the doorfrom being gone all day. he came and picked me up. I couldn't walk to his car with the sandals on, so I walked through smiths parking lot barefoot. Not the smartest thing in the world to do, but I was in Macho pain here, plus blood was getting all over my sandals. Now that I think of it, that was really dumb. the walking through the parking lot barefoot I mean. Who in there right mind would voluntarily walk ANYWHERE in magna with an open wound barefoot? Great, now I have AIDS. Oh well, at least I'll have pretty french manicured toe nails.
I hate having to work on sundays. I'm getting my schedule changed as soon as possible. I feel like a part of me is empty not going to church, Which is really weird, because i don't really enjoy church that much. I guess it's out of habit. Going to church for 18, oops, 19(wierd, I'm nineteen. I'm just now realizing this) years, and all of a sudden, I can't. It won't be for long I hope.
I think they messed up with my last paycheck. I got $300 more than my last one, and I worked the same hours, with only a little overtime. I'm not one to complain though. mums the word. :)
Dangit. I have to keep stop writing to blow my nose. I have a bit of a cold. Not too bad though. I guess I shouldn't complain.
Does anyone else like McDonald's McGriddles as much as I do? I am ADDICTED to them! I think they are my latest addiction. I have to leave my debit card home when I go to work or else I would buy one evrryday for breakfast. I think I've given up on being thin. I just like food too much. And why deny myself? I know I'll be depressed about my weight, be jealous of others' and eventually need a shrink, but in the end I wonder what I would appreciate more, enjoying food all my life and having a good time?(while clogging my arteries and getting sick), or being thin? when I'm on my death bed, I wonder what would I regret more? Anywho, enough of that rambling.
Well, Randy had his surgery the other day. He's been lying down, barking out orders to all of us. He sure is a slave driver. I guess if he ever gets too bad, I could trip him or something. Ok, so he's not THAT bad. it would still be kind of funny though.
Well, I've officially run out of things to say, and need to take a shower and go to bed, and whiten my teeth, and reads my scriptures, and feed my cat. oh, speaking of cats, Button died yesterday. I was at work when he died. My parents buried him in our back yard. It's sad, but he was in pain, and couldn't eat. plus he had a really good life, so I'm ok. Death doesn't bother me for some reason. It's not like I'm fascinated with it like Michelle though. I'm trying to convince my parents to get another cat. It is wierd with just two cats around. Everybody needs a dozen cats or so. they are very enteraining and comforting. They get to know you like another person, and they know your emotions. Gotta love em'.
I'll leave you today with the diary of a paranoid cat to cheer you all up from the bad news. Tootles!

Diary of a Paranoid Cat
My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the satisfaction from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.
Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded; must try this at the top of the stairs. In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to throw up on their favourite chair....must try this on their bed.
Slept all day so that I could annoy my captors with sleep depriving, incessant pleas for food at ungodly hours of the night.
Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was....Hmm. Not working according to plan.....
I am finally aware of how sadistic they are. For no good reason I was chosen for the water torture. This time however it included a burning, foamy chemical called "shampoo". What sick minds could invent such a liquid. My only consolation is the piece of thumb still stuck between my teeth.
There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary confinement throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the foul odour of the glass tubes they call "beer". More importantly, I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergies". Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.
I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird on the other hand has got to be an informant. He has mastered their frightful tongue (something akin to molespeak) and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room his safety is assured. But I can wait; it is only a matter of time.

pretty picture Posted by Hello

What does the T in T-Shirt really mean?

Well, tthe bidding has ended and I am without a viola AGAIN! Three flippin motards were sniping out my viola, and the last three seconds, they outbid me. what freaks. If there was some way for me to find out wher they live, I would hunt them down and steal the viola. I get payed on friday though, so if that seller stick any more up, I can put a higher bid and win. that is if she has any more of the violas.
Anywho, oon to happier things. My Arwin necklace came today! It is so pretty! I'm wearing it right now. It's just like it was in the picture, pretty pretty.
My cat button is dying. last week he stopped eating and drinking. he is all skin and bones, he's to weak to walk, and we are feeding him through an eye dropper. It's so sad. He is Michelles cat and she won't see him ever again. My brothers are digging a hole in our back yard today. We all thought he was going to die last night, but amazingly he survived. he just lies on the bed staring off in a trance. It's really wierd. He's 22 years old. He's been alive longer than me. I don't know life without him. I'll be really sad when he dies. I'm hoping we get anothe cat when he is gone. I'm just used to having three cats around. I don't see how anyone can live life without pets. especially cats.
My brother Randy has updated his websiite for the band, so If anyof you want to check it out and sign the guestbook, here you go
I need to go clean my room now and feed my kitty. tootles to ya'll

Where in the nursery rhyme does it say humpty dumpty is an egg?

Another day gone by in my life, and I feel no change, no accomplished things, nothing that I really did to improve my life. I watered my flowers in the garden, ate way too much food, and watched wierd al movies. they were pretty funny, but still, not much accomplished. I'm still in confusion about what to do with the scholarship. I talked with Toni today, and she suggested I stop asking "What if" and write dowa all the pros and cons, I'lll go do that right now and be back with he results in a minute...............................ok the results are in. It is exactly down the middle even. that didn't help at all. I see all the little details on each side and I still don't know what to do. I need to do some more praying and thinking and talking with my parents. I really want to move out, but the situation I'm in right now just feels right. It's a really good job, it is within walking distance of my house, so i don't need a car or have to ride the bus for it, and it just feels like it's what I'm supposed to be doing. I don't know if that will change when august rolls around though. but then it will be to late. i have to decide now with the whole scholarship thing. I miss playing with an orchesra SOOO much. I haven't really played since graduation. That's almost an entire year ago. I've been thinking about the wwest valley symphony, but my brother michael says they are poo. I just want to play with an orchestra and keep my current job. If only UVSC was in magna, then everything would work out. wow I've rambled on a lot with this, time for a new subject.
Tonight for family night we went to subway, and then AB's for a shake, came home and played cranium. Randy and I won. We kept getting all questions we knew. the last one was a Buddy Holly song, and I knew it! yay! Randy just informed me that brian Setzer just married one of his backup singers this month. interesting. Most of you probably don't even know who that is. Anywho, I'm trying to ste up Randy's band with a gig at the Magna night out against crime. they played there last year, and lots of people liked it. Stupid Magna arts council won't return my emails. dumb people.
My brother is a Pyro. My computer is still in my old room, so i have to enndure his stupidity while I'm online. Now he's playing with matches and Goo be gone, that specifically says do not use near open flame. The fire alarm is going to go off in a minute I know it. now it stinks in here.
Randy is going for his knee surgery this thursday. then he'll be confined to his bed for days and possibly weeks. HA! the poor little dear. he'll probably catch his bed on fire. Now he's showing my dad how cool it is burning the goo be gone stuff. I wonder where he gets it from? what is with guys and fire? and explosives? probably something to do with testosterone. I guess with girls its chocolate :) Stupid fire alarm went off.very loud. What a queer bro I have.
Well, can't think of much else to say, and now Randy is reading this, so I'll say good bye and Randy is a poo.

an update on Me

I quit the conference center job because I kept getting migraines from lack of sleep. I still work at alorica and passed the exam, so I'll be getting a raise and can keep working there forever if I want. If you don't pass the training test after two weeks, you can't work there. I got my schoalrship letter today. It's for half tuition. I really don't know what to do now. I have a really good paying job that is within walking distance of my house, and I have the option of moving to Orem and going to school. I'll be doing a lot of praying this week. I just don't know what to do.
Some guy that called in for tech support today asked me for my number. You would have to be seriously desperate if you ask a person you called for computer help for a date. I asked him how old he was. 29! When I told him I was 19, he paused, and then said, "hey, if you're old enough to drive, you're old enough to come over to my house" YIKES! this guy is scary. he gave me his e-mail address too. uh huh. some people in this world frighten me.
I'm bidding on a sister viola of the original one I wanted on e-bay. I really really want this one. It's the same maker as my sister's. Amazing sound. I'm also getting an Arwin necklace(you know, LOTR's?? yes I'm a bit of a fanatic) anyway, I hope I get that too. Hey, I'm entitled to some spending money right? it's not like I have any commtments or anything. I really should be saving for a car I suppose. Car? what's that? hmmph.
I'm going to see star wars on tuesday with my sister. Everyone else in my family has already seen it. the bums.
Oh, Toni! I ordered some bras( sorry men) from Lane Bryant! They had my size! yipeee! very cute indeed.
we've all kind a lost touch since we got jobs and such. I guess it's good we've all been busy at least. Hope all your jobs are fun and exciting. Mine is....interesting. usually irate customers ranting about how they are never going to buy a gateway computer again and how I need to fix theirs now. If they would flippin' SHUT UP I could help them. ARGH! Kind of a frustrating job at times, but I really like it. must go and do some clothes shopping, see you al later

That's not a lie. It's a terminological inexactitude

Wow. It's been forever since I've had a free minute of time. I've been working my two jobs this week. In three weeks I'll havee a new schedual where I can can have a life and more than five hours of sleep every night. Right now I wake up at 7:00am, be at work by 8:00am, work until fivepm, sleep fo three hours, go to work at the conference center, come home at 2:00am, sleep till' 7:00, and do it all over again. Mountain Dew has become my friend. My best friend.
Next week i starrt on the call floor talking to customers. I didn't realize how little I know about computers until now. I am scared to death. But i really like the job. I don't mind sitting at a desk all day helping people figure out their computer. kind of gives me a happy feeling. I'm glad I'm working two jobs. I don't really have much to do wth my time other wise, and it makes me feel all grown up with responsibilities and all. ya know?
Wow, You know how their are the really cute security dudes at the conference center? I just have this thing for older guys. More mature i suppose. I don't really want someone who is ten years older than me though. that would be wierd.
Only bad part about alorica is that no onee is LDS. they all smoke(you can smell it on them) they don't mind swearing about every little thing, and they dress like bums. oh well. can't win them all. Dan Senten works there. What a wacko. funny kid. Oh! the best part is i get a ten perrcent discount at mcDonalds! wahoo! because, i like, go there everyday, and like totally love their greasy-fattening-artery-clogging-food-everyday for lunch. yum yuum.
....................2hours later.................... I just got back from Angela's reception with Tony. I can't believe she is actually married now. She is going to Maui for the honeymoon. lucky ducky. Only for a week though, and then Mike has to be back at work. she said we are having a sleepover and looking through all of her presents, and playing all our duets together. oh, the memories. She had a gorgeouus dress, pretty set up and everything. ya, she made me cry, she cried, and all that girly stuff. wait! I took pictures with randy's digital camera, so i can post them! yay! I'll put them up later.
Speaking of Randy, he's home now. The first coupke of dys he kept speaking German thinking we could understand him. he is going to the doctors on monday and they will do all the final tests before his surgery. fun fun. ouch. He's still kind of a missionary, so he can't go see movies, watch tv date get a job or anything else. He's been plunking around on his guitar like nuts though. he hasn't lost his touch. Plus, he sings now and isn't shy about it. So once the Tomcats get back together, they'll go big. yay. More money for me, their manager. :)
I'm thinking of getting a loan for a a car right now. I don't want to wait four months. that is walking hime from work for four months. It's too close to my house to take the bus. but far away enough that its a long walk. I just want a Jeep grand cherokee. I love those! So, If I get a loan approved, and somehow manage to get my parents too sign(ya right) I'll have a car. wahoo. I found one for five thousand dollars. And since i don't have rent oor school right now, All my money would be going towards it, so I would pay it off real quick. I just need it!
Well, i must be off to study for my test next week. So many terms, so little time. Nighty night.
