For the sweet love of larry, internet

God DAMN are you slow.


Dial-up +work downloads +shithole connection = me getting all punchy.

Don't make me cut you, craptacular dial-up. Because I will. I have plenty of time while I WAIT FOR YOU TO SEND AN EMAIL THAT IS A MERE 2K.

Sweet Deal, Neil

Today, thusfar, is pretty damn good.

It started with a good friday email spree with a really cool and funny guy (thanks, you.) and has been productive and enlightening, and it's only going to get better.

Yay for happy Sundays!

When it's right, it's right.

And baby, this is so right.

Granted, I still feel like I'm not really awake, and "where the hell am I?", but dude, this is getting good.

Wow, it's really fucked up to be home

Things are, well, very different here. I haven't figured out if it's a good different, or just a different different. So far, I've been too busy to tell.

However, there are some definate positives and negatives:

It's a good thing:
  1. I can now (to my knowledge) qualify for an apartment. Due to some *cough* circumstances in Arizona, my credit to get an apartment was FUBAR. Apparantly moving out of state was the only way that I could fix that any time soon. Learned by example I guess.
  2. I think I may be able to get a car in the near future. yay for car!
  3. My family, my friends, yada yada.
  4. Driving was actually SO MUCH FUN. I am officially a lame-o.
  5. I can finally totally wash my hands of all the bullshit that has happened in the past 5 years.

Bad, bad Leroy Brown:
  1. The weather here has been cloudy and rainy. Granted, I'm LOVING it, but I crave sunshine like a bitch.
  2. Leaving my friends behind for the second time in 5 years.
  3. Having to start all over again, AGAIN.

Yeah well. I'm in a great mood, and hopefully I made the right choice. I guess we'll see.

Oh, and for the record, it was probably too soon to tell my mom that I'm completely comfortable with never getting married because of my general distrust toward men. I think she thought moving up here would land me a hubsand, but honestly I'm hoping for just some really good sex, without all the bullshit that goes along with it. I think I may have mentioned that to her too...

Mission Accomplished.

I'm there/here. I got in last night...

I'm too stressed, too busy, and too damn tired to update more than this.

All I know is I can't wrap my brain around this at all.

Move on, Groove on, Rock on.

Tonight I'm cleaning, working, cleaning some more.

I pick up my truck bright and early in the morning, and then I load it, do more work, and then attend my farewell BBQ (thanks Linz!). My ass is outta here in just over 24 hours.

I have the greatest friends ever, and I'm leaving many of them behind. I'll miss you kids terribly, but this is what people do. I'll be back at some point, I promise.

I sold my car. Thank. sweet. god.

Yeah, that's about it. I'll catch up with all of you in a few days, but if I get bored enough, expect an audio blog from the road.

Til then.

Yesterday was craptacular, except for my great dinner with The Danica. That girl is so awesome, it actually hurts. SOOOO going to miss you! It was nice to get to see her again as it had been way too long, and hopefully I'll get one more chance before I leave.

This morning, I woke up really, really early, worked for awhile, and went to get my paperwork to head to get a new title so I could sell the beast today.

[insert triumphant horns and beacon of light from the heavens]

And there it was. My ORIGINAL title.

Thank god I don't have to go to the DMV anymore.

[end tooting and beaming]


So, looks like today may actually end up with a lot of Hell Yes! I'm going to sell my car today, so this could be really, really great. (I'll totally miss my Shaggin' Wagon though - that thing has seen so much action... uh... I mean... uh...)

It's all about me-me.

I don't usually do these things, but I thought this one was ok.

6. What is the little physical habit that gives away your insecure moments? Serious amounts of ear blushing.

7. Are you a pyromaniac? Used to be.

8. Do you have too many interests? I think it’s more ADD than “too many interests”.

11. Spontaneous or planned? I’d answer that, but it isn’t on my schedule.

12. Who should play you in a movie about your life? I’ve been told either that girl from Blossom, Debbie Harry or Jamie Lee Curtis. Personally I’d love to see it done as a Shakespearian Drama played by all men.

25. Do you consider yourself to be a nice person? Unfortunately to a fault.

26. Do you spend more time with your girlfriend/boyfriend or your friends? Preferably both, although I end up being a total hermit when I get too domestic.

This is The Suck

Well, to start off on a good note, I actually feel considerably better today. Actually, MUCH better (I'm at about 80% now) in spite of smoking a couple cigarettes last night (the first in days). The throat is uncomfortable, but no longer terribly painful, so we shall see.

The suck:
Looks like the title I have for my car isn't really a title at all, it's a title application. (??) So basically, I was going to sell the car today, and now really technically cant, because I get to spend Monday at the DMV (or MVD here in Arizona) getting an Arizona Title and THEN I can transfer it.

Good news!

I finally gagged myself long enough to look down my throat to check for the tell-tale white bumps.

No bumps!

However, my throat is obviously annoyed with me - it looks a bit red and nasty, and honestly - it HURTS.

So, between the headaches and the spiky fevers and the horrible exhaustion and the raging sore throats, I have something, I just don't know what.


Forwarded Wisdom

Still one of my favorite forwards. It shows up in my inbox about every couple of months, and I smile every time I read it, even though it's that joke you've heard a hundred times...
  1. It's important to have a woman who helps at home, who cooks from time to time, cleans up and has a job.
  2. It's important to have a woman who can make you laugh.
  3. It's important to have a woman who you can trust and who doesn't lie to you.
  4. It's important to have a woman who is good in bed and who likes to be with you.
  5. It's very, very important that these four women don't know each other.

Call Security

Telling the neighbor you picked up (and hugged) at the airport yesterday that you may have strep throat is like telling him you may have poisoned his breakfast.

He was like "Uh, oh. I hugged you."


Nothing makes you last-picked in the neighborhood popularity contest like being considerably younger and now CONTAGIOUS. Honestly, I wasn't feeling crappy until about 5 pm last night, so I dont think he is "infected".

Yay for freaking people out unintentionally.


I am Jack's Wicked Fever

Yeah, so I'm sweating.


And I'm just sitting here. Completely still. Under a ceiling fan. With the air conditioner 2 degrees lower than I'm usually comfortable at.

Yeah - it's gotta be strep.




Good news! I may have strep throat! (Actually, I'm pretty positive. Woo!)

Turns out, one of my good friends who I 'm practically attached to at the hip just told me she's got it bad. I guess that explains this horrible fever I've had (and still have right now), the raging sore throat, and the overall feeling of near-death.

Yay for strep!
Yay for no health insurance!
Yay for trying to be uber-productive and crazy sick at the same time!


Squirmy Worm

I'm working and listening to Swingers which is playing in the other room, and it makes me so uncomfortable I can hardly stand it. He's SO bad with women.

Great movie though.

Oh, and the poke-ability of 3 of them makes me want to have a foursome. I mean really, can you imagine the potential with Ron Livingston, Jon Favreau, and Vince Vaughn?

Sweet Jesus that's a whole lotta hot man.

Excuse me - I think I need a few minutes...

The Ol' Switcheroo

Yes, there was a rather mean post here. I pulled it.

It served its purpose, and I really am not that terrible person that it made me out to be.

Seriously though, I'm very, very nice, but if you take advantage of me, betray my trust, or disrespect me, I can be a horrible pain in the ass.

Yeah, so don't do that shit. I hate being the bitch.
