Having forgotten something Very Important, Alice sits down to think.....

Have you ever had one of those days when you think, " This is not the person I was going to be when I grew up." ? One of those days when you look in the mirror and you're greeted by the face of a person you don't actually recognize? Someone that looks vaguely like you, but somehow manages to come up more as a shadow?

I've been feeling like that more and more lately. The person in my mirror just isn't me. I'm not sure who she is, but she's not the the person I started out to be. The person I keep seeing everything I brush my hair or floss my teeth is beginning to look a little tired, and well, old.

I never wanted to be old. In fact I'm fairly certain that when I was about 16 I decided I wasn't going to get old. Of course, when I was 16 I also decided to dye my hair purple and swore I would never have children....I now have two...So maybe she isn't the best me to take advice from, you think?

Still, I have this nagging feeling that I've forgotten something Very Important. I've gotten so bogged down with dead end jobs, and bills to pay and smiling even when I don't want to , that I've forgotten something I'm sure I should be able to remember. I'm beginning to feel like Alice just tumbling through the looking glass, " Curiouser and Curiouser....."



Cut, Paste,Cut,Past,Cut,Paste..Send....ARRRRRGH!!!!

This job is mind numbing! I've had some boring jobs, but what they have me doing right now is seriously mind numbing. I can only hope that after we get out of nesting they will give us emails that require more then canned responses and cutting and pasting in the answers. I don't believe I will last longer than a month if not.

I'm going nuts sitting here eight hours a day.

On the bright side, I get to listen to music while my mind turns to mush.


The price for fun.

I have just officially lost my voice. This sucks. I can whisper, I can make this hideous little sqeaking sound, other than that, NADA.

I guess this is the price you pay for having fun at my age.

I have to deal with the whole rental thing now. My landlady still expects me to pay full rent for an apartment that has exposed electrical wiring in the hallway, mildew filled carpet in the hall closet, NO carpet in the living room, a stove I can't use because I can't set the temperature and the door only opens halfway, the door to the master bedroom has NO door knob and will not close when it does have one....and last but not least, the toilet only flushes about thirty percent of the time.

What is it with me and apartments with faulty toilets? And shitty landlords? I mean what's up with this. I've never had this kind of problem with rentals before, not until I moved to Utah.

This person said to me that until gave her money she wasn't going to fix anything, because she can't afford to fix things. My comeback to that was, "Maybe you shouldn't own a rental unit then."

She'll be back on the seventh, unless I call her earlier. Hell, I just don't want to deal with it at all. I can't wait to get the hell out of there.

Coincidenece? I think not.

This kills me.....look at all the pictures. Does it scare anyone else, how much our President resembles a Chimp?


And the sky's opened....

Last night I stayed in town so I could hang out with my friend Cody. I haven't seen him in a couple of months, and so I was looking forward to just hangin out.

I got done with work before he did, so I just went to Barnes and Noble and hung out for a while. By the time I got outside, around 7:20, it had started to sprinkle. No big deal. By the time Cody showed up around 7:35 it was raining, but still nothing to major.

We decided to walk to the other end of the mall....the OPEN air mall......and try to catch a movie. About half way to the cineplex the gentle rain turned into a torential downpour. We got SOAKED. It was hilarious. We had to walk all the way back down the length of the mall to get to his car and by that time we looked like we had been swimming, not a dry spot on us.

Luckily, Cody has nifty seat warmers....that made for an interesting ride home. We got out to Tooele and decided to catch a movie. And yes, we are both still soaking wet. And about to go and sit in an air conditioned theater.

We saw Must Love Dogs, which is a very funny movie. Makes me remember why I swore I was going to marry John Cusak one day. Yummy!!!

All in all, it was a great night! Even with the rain.


Jorgelives......Read It!!!!!!!!!

I noticed recently that my friend Stephanie has not been updating her blog. I also noticed a lack of comments ....I put the two together and thought perhaps she needed some encouragement.

Please take a minute to click the link and visit her blog. She's quite funny, and I think you all will enjoy it.

Just a moment to talk about Stephanie. I haven't gotten to spend as much time with her as I would like to lately, but the other night we got a chance to go out with some friends, have some dinner, catch a flick at the dollar theater. It was a good night.

As we were wasting time until the movie started, we just kind of drove around Salt Lake, hanging out and I realized that I have never had a bad time with her. We don't have to be doing anything really, just listening to music and talking, and I feel totally at ease, and I have a great time.

This particular night, we ended up driving down State Street singing eighties tunes at the top of our lungs and laughing at people who were making faces at us.....boring idiots!

I've decided that the reason Steph is so special to me is not just because she's always there for me, but because she reminds me that it's never to late in life to just relax, laugh and have a good time.

Have you ever heard the phrase, " If you have enough friends to count on one hand, you have more than most people make in a lifetime."? That's Stephanie....I would count her on that one hand.

Okay.....I'm done now. Have a nice day, don't forget to check out Steph's Blog!!!


Darth Tater and a serious lack of laughter

Click the link.....go on click it! I'm sorry, but I think that a Mr. Potato Head dressed up like Darth Vader and named Darth Tater is FREAKIN hilarious. Apparently I'm just way to easily amused.

I laughed the first time I saw it in Time magazine and I laugh every time I see it still. Is there no child-like sense of humour left in the world? Anyone? Come on people, someone help me out here. There has to be at least ONE of you out there that's finds this funny.

*sighs* All right.....back to work, I mean I am getting paid.
