    The Good:
  • Dad finally got the "dermal shots" for his bulging disc/pinched nerve.
  • Dad is "doing well" (according to Mom).
  • Mom & Dad are bringing back McDonald's.
  • I like my Intro to Sociology class.
  • It's Thursday.
  • I have a job interview on September 2.
  • My doctor prescribed some hefty antibiotics (because I've had so many upper respiratory/sinus infections over the course of my life that normal antibiotics don't work).
  • I'm loving novel version of The DaVinci Code way more than the movie (which, despite Tom Hanks not-so-attractive presence, I happen to love).

    The Bad:
  • I have an upper respiratory infection.
  • Today is an "ozone day."
  • I'm sneezing like crazy.
  • And stuffy.
  • And hungry.
  • (And whiney.)

    The Ugly:
  • Actually, there is no ugly (unless you count a serious case of bed-head). I just couldn't resist.

Real Life...

My weekend was interesting. I got my nose broken by a baby that isn't even a year old. Jessie's son, Asher, head-butted me in the nose when I was holding him on Sunday, when Jess brought him over to visit. He's the sweetest, hyper-active-est thing. Really. I do love him (like a nephew or cousin or, you know, my best friend's son...). But the kid broke my nose. *whines pitifully* On the plus side, I'm doped up ("borrowing" painkillers from my mom...not stealing though; more like taking sans prescription, but with the prescription holder's permission...).

On the downside, I'm a little bit loopy. Which isn't so great as I went to work with mom today (she works at Arkansas Rice Depot, which is this really great non-profit organization that combats hunger--mostly by shipping food to schools for kids who can't afford school lunches/food in general...). Apparently spending a whole lot of time on-line has done me a lot of good. Because I'm productive (or something), because I type faster than...well, faster than the lady I was helping today (she's really nice; her name's Tena). Now I'm scanning stuff for her (well, technically, I'm taking a break and having dinner--chicken fingers and corn fritters--before going back to scanning stuff).

Also, I bought seasons 1-4 of The O.C.. Ordered them on the Best Buy website. Season 4 is backordered (blah). I'm watching season 1 right now (sort of as a background noise...actually).

*dramatic sigh*

Woke up this morning, walked out into the living room and, lo and behold, the cats (or max, our old and senile "miniature" lab) had knocked the Christmas tree down for a third time. I talked to my parents last night about securing it to the wall. Mom vetoed. Dad came up with the idea to suspend it from the ceiling. I think the suspended tree might look nice, but Mom, again, says no. I'm bringing it up with them again tonight, because I'm getting sick of having to pick the damn thing up before I've had my instant breakfast. I'll be all different kinds of ecstatic tomorrow if I wake to a vertical tree.

In other news, I finally withdrew from my classes (today was the last day to do it). Part of me hates the idea of being a college drop-out, but the other part of me is like "DUDE! It was driving you totally, climbing up the walls batshit." Mostly, I agree with voice no. 2. (Not actual voices, mind you, I'm not that crazy...also schizophrenia is a lot more rare than Law and Order would have us believe...) I'm still in the process of finding a job that won't drive me crazy/make me feel like shit.

I'm doing laundry right now (well not, right now right now, but, you know, the washer is going and the dryer just stopped) in order to butter up the parents into agreeing with me on the tree. If I wanted to be more blatant about it, I could make them coffee before they get home.

As an aside, in my house--household, that is--coffee is not just an every-now-and-then or every morning thing; it's an all day, every day thing. Mom and Dad wake up with coffee, they come home and relax with coffee until about, oh, say, 7:00 or 8:00 pm. There's always a pot of coffee going on the weekends. I think I had coffee before all my friends did--I was, I believe, 8. I've been drinking it (and cokes) for a long time. I have a huge tolerance for caffeine. Upside? I can have two or three mochas and not be obnoxiously hyper. Downside? I have to have two of those Starbucks Doubleshot thingies in order to wake me up when I haven't had enough sleep and still need to function.

My mom's started smoking again. She was doing really well, you know. And it's not just for financial reasons that she's been trying to quit, but for her health. She has COPD and asthma. The doctor has told her that every time she smokes she's going to get sick. But does she listen? No. Of course not. That would make sense. *grumbles*

Real Life stuffs

I'm wearing fake nails! Yay! And I can still type with them on, so they're not unreasonably long or anything (also yay!). I even put nifty little jewels on them. They're really cute.

On another note, Jessie came over last night. We ate Chinese and got drunk (her more than me, but she needed it more than me). And watched movies and played Sims2 (well, Jess played, I watched and made suggestions). It was fun.

Mom, on the other hand, probably didn't have any fun. Mostly because she couldn't breathe too well because her asthma/COPD was acting up (because she'd been smoking again). She went to the doctor today and he told her to get some rest and that she couldn't go back to Cursillo because it's outdoors and not healthy for her. I'm actually glad she's here.

I went by US Pizza Co. today and, to my shock, Maddie Spring is working there. Maddie is Melissa Spring's little sister (although Melissa isn't Melissa Spring anymore; she got married). She said Melissa is pregnant. Shocked the hell out of me. I'm actually a little hurt that I wasn't invited to the wedding (or the baby shower, but that's today and she doesn't have my address at this house). But, we'd lost touch a while ago, so I really don't have any right to be upset.

I'm going to put this behind a cut for those who haven't read Stephenie Meyers's Twilight series (Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse).This one of those really rare times where I get pissed off at canon... )

On another note, my mom has a new job. She's leaving Traffic Court and going to work at the Arkansas Rice Depot (which is a non-profit organization that helps the "needy"). I'm really happy for her. Now I just have to get myself a job...(Temp agencies and their websites are confusing...)

Also, I think I'm starting to convert from Peter/Claire to West/Claire...*gasp!* I loved the vintage Superman/Lois Lane scene that West and Claire had. Sooo cute. It totally won me over.
