8:38AM - Feliz Cumpleanos
So it was my birthday yesterday. D is terrible sick so I spent most of my day trying to make the baby feel better. I did get away for a short while to have some birthday cake with my Mother. She gave me a beautiful little table that I love very much. D got me a new ipd, bigger and better than my old one and I can't wait to have it but it's on the truck for delivery right now and I'm at work!!!! So maybe it won't deliver until after I'm home otherwise I will pick it up myself at the Fedex place tonight since it's just down the street from our place. When did birthdays become so...not exciting?
So I'll be up late tonight loading songs onto my new pod which I am going to name Rocksi. Any suggestions, must-haves, etc?

This post may become a work in progress.
I am currently enrolled in a class. Two actually but one is a web-based course which is how I usually take all of my courses. However there was one that I needed and it was only for a couple of nights a week so I thought "how bad could it be?" NOTE: If you are ever considering something and think to yourself, "how bad could it be?", take this as a sign. It could be real freakin bad. A few things you must know about this course... It is a GRADUATE level course. EVERYONE in this class already has a college degree. EVERYONE in this class is at least 25 years old and the vast majority are over 30 years old. It is important to also note the time, I only spend one hour and fifteen minutes two nights a week with these people. I sit for that entire one hour and fifteen minutes contemplating the possible repercussions of me strangling any one of them with my bare hands. I've come to a point where I fully believe the professor would award me with an automatic A and an appreciative pat on the back if I were to do this. This required course is complete rubbish as it is all about social behavior and stereotypes in the work place. If they were pumping Hanson songs into the room during class it would be my very own personal level of Hell. There are a few standouts in this class whom I have aptly nick-named. Masculine Girl, Feminine Guy, Super Dad and last but certainly not least, Macedonia Guy. All of these should be realtively self-explanatory with the exception of Macedonia Guy. Come back with me if you will to the first day of class. The prof is speaking on power and how the people making the most money are seen as those in power therefore men. Macedonia guy pops up with "what about the middle east where women have the economic power?" As you can imagine, this was meant with silence and stares of disbelief. The professor tried to address this as gently as possible alas Macedonia Guy would not give in and back-peddled a bit with "well yeah but if you go way back to Macedonia men married women for their cattle and money." That was the final straw. A girl in the back corrected him by pointing out that women were more traded with the cattle which was their dowry and I pointed out that Macedonia wasn't even in what is now the Middle East. Macedonia guy truly believes he knows something about everything when in fact I am surprised he is capable of dressing himself in the morning. To be continued...

12:29PM - I am the Walrus
I love Martin Freeman. I have no idea why but I just adore him. Maybe he's a prick in real life? Very possible. Maybe I watch The Office and Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy too much? Probably. Anyway, great "Tim" quote: "It's like an alarm clock's gone off, and I've just got to get away. I think it was John Lennon who said: "Life is what happens when you're making other plans.", and that's how I feel. Although he also said: "I am the Walrus I am the eggman" so I don't know what to believe."
Speaking of the office, I feel like I've been trapped in mine for far too long now. I did finally get my laptop back from IT, actually a brand new laptop so three cheers for that! However the time is still set to Eastern time and it's driving me crazy. I should be leaving right now according to this but no, I still have an hour left.
I was thinking about starting up my own business. I would just do research for people. I like research. If I only I could go back to childhood, I totally would pick Archeologist as "what I want to be when I grow up". How exciting was Indiana Jones?? He was never trapped in some rubbish little office listening to bad elevator music. I feel very antsy lately, like I need to go somewhere new and amazing. Very much like an alarm clocks gone off...

1:52PM - Murder Most Foul
I know everyone has people or situations at work that get under their skin so I'm sure you all can relate to my situation.
I work in a bank and Thursday is the day direct deposits hit. In our system we can see them pending, sitting out there just waiting to hit. So I field calls all day long from people asking what their deposit will be. So I tell them and I let them know that it will be in between 3 and 3:30 in the afternoon. This guy, this boil on the butt of humanity, shows up at freakin 1:30. He sits down across the desk from me, stankin, and starts to talk. I hear about every current and past injury he's ever had and then he starts in about his money. "It hits at 2:00". "I know it hits at 2:00." OVER AND OVER AND OVER! OMFG. So someone has to die, it's either him or me. I pick him.
That is all.

12:46PM - So Freakin Weird
I used to think that WalMart was such an overwhelming pressence because it was one big ass store where you could get literally anything. I was wrong. You can't get EVERYTHING and ANYTHING at Walmart...but you can get EVERYTHING and ANYTHING at Costco...
Your true one-stop-shop COSTCO
A little disturbing to be honest.

7:16AM - WikiFun
I borrowed this from Tarpo. Interesting stuff!
Go to Wikipedia and look up your birthday (excluding the year). After you are finished poking around for 3 hours wasting time that could be better spent doing USEFUL things. List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.
3 neat facts:
1916 - Emma Goldman arrested for lecturing on birth control.
1964 - At the Washington, DC Coliseum, The Beatles have their 1st live appearance in the United States.
1990 - Nelson Mandela, a political prisoner for 27 years, is freed from Victor Verster prison outside Cape Town, South Africa.
1847 - Thomas Alva Edison, American inventor and businessman (d. 1931)
1969 - Jennifer Aniston, American actress
1963 - Sylvia Plath, American writer (b. 1932)

9:39AM - Right On!
Gun Control and the Wizard of Oz
Those opposed to gun control claim restrictions violate their constitutional rights and represent further encroachment by a federal government that is out of control. But we’ve had gun control for most of this century without any such problems. For example, we’ve never been able to hunt squirrels with a bazooka. (Nor would you want to if your intention was to eat the squirrel.) Yet there are vicious squirrel killers who, to satisfy their blood lust, would blow apart the fuzzy little nut gatherers with field artillery if it were legal.
Obviously, allowing a handful of lunatics to launch rocket grenades at quick, tiny, moving targets would be dangerous to society at large— thus it’s against the law. The government has always denied individuals the right to have a tank or a Gatling gun or a howitzer for that reason. The kind of gun control we so desperately need now is the kind that keeps automatic weapons out of the hands of grade, junior and senior high school kids, drop outs, disgruntled post office employees, religious fanatics and all the generic nut-jobs who mean to harm the innocent. Is there any reason a 6th grader needs an Uzi? Wouldn’t a single shot .22 be enough for that angry youngster?
Because this is the reality— without restrictions on automatic weapons, every kid that got turned down for a date to the prom, every underachieving civil servant who got passed over for a promotion, every psycho you ever pissed off can get a street-sweeper death- spewing fountain of lead/hell weapon if they want one. Recently, a spokesman for the National Rifle Association insisted that, “If we allow the government to control what type of guns we can have they will then be able to tell us that you can’t build a house with ten bedrooms, if that’s what you want to do.”
I don’t know if the NRA is aware of this or not but the government does tell people what size house they can build. They are called zoning laws you gaggle of goofs.
And what kind of analogy is that anyway? Houses don’t kill people. Unless you’re the Wicked Witch of the East, then they do. When Dorothy and Toto and the house they flew in on, landed on the Wicked Witch of the East, it killed her. This in turn pissed off the Wicked Witch of the West, who thankfully could not buy an automatic weapon due to the strict gun control laws in that movie. Can you imagine how many Munchkins the Wicked Witch of the West could have wasted had she had an Uzi instead of a broom? There wouldn’t have been the journey to Oz or the Cowardly Lion or those evil flying monkeys. Were it not for strict gun control laws, instead of being a great feature film the Wizard of Oz would have been just an interesting short subject.
The government doesn’t allow us to do all kinds of things and one of the most important things the government shouldn’t allow anybody to do is kills lots of people at one time.

I was leaving to come back to work today and Dr Honda pulled me aside to tell me that the tree, under which I park, is going to fall down. That was all, just that the tree next to my car is going to fall. I think I might have to go out in the middle of the night and move my car then chop the tree down myself. I don't know what I'll do if the tree falls on my car. This man is sooooo strange.
I had a really great dumbass moment at work just a few minutes ago. The professor in Macomb was locked out of his Codec system so I had to call down to Macomb to get a tech down there to go in and fix it. So they send in this 12 year old and I said "Thats who they sent to fix it." and of course our mics down here weren't muted. Beautiful Mandy. At least I got both classes rolling with laughter.
Well, after I'm done with this class its off to coffee with Michelle, hopefully she doesn't park under that damn tree.
The National Weather Service folks say the conditions here in the Quad Cities are very favorable for tornados. I believe it! Aside from the steady downpour the winds are going crazy. Good day to stay inside and cuddle. So I thought I'd surprise Heather. I'm getting the apartment nice and clean then I'm going to go get this cute little black see-through teddy and the rest of the evening will be...PERFECT!
Maybe I'll even cook dinner. Lemon pepper chicken I think. That sounds delicious!
I hope everyones having a fantastic day!

The previous entry was originally intended to be a part of this one. My clicking finger is still sleeping.
The cleaning of Heather's mother's house went well. Her mother had us clean fake trees and plants...leaf by leaf. How bizarre. Heather had to recaulk (I think I spelled that word wrong) the shower at her mom's. So we had to drive to Tipton to get the gunk. On the way back a state trouper pulled us over. Heather got a ticket, she forgot to put her seatbelt on. blah Other than that it was just a beautiful day out in the country. We didn't get home until about 6:30pm. Then we ordered a yummy taco pizza and watched The Bone Collector and Something About Mary. I liked both movies but I think bone collector was a little too gory for Heather's liking. Yesterday we slept in till almost 3pm, which felt nice. Then we had to go meet with Heather's lawyer about the car accident and then we went to do our laundry! The kid working at subway, where we got our dinner, liked me a lot. He kept making smiley faces on my sandwich with the mustard and pickles.
After dinner and laundry we went home and watched one more movie, The Omega Code. It was interesting. Pretty good movie actually, ending could have been better. And today its back to work. I was insanely early this morning which is stinky. My class here is doing presentations today so I won't be online which is stinky. The computer is the only salvation I have during this class.
I'll write more later!
9:04AM - Weekday Update
You know, the most challenging part of posting something in LiveJournal is coming up with a snazy subject!
Monday, April 9, 2001
I think some stupendous all girl punk group should cover this old Monkies tune, Pleasant Valley Sunday.
Anyway, Heather and I are off to her mom's house today. I think Heather is suffering from sleep deprevation. She is acting way crazy. I got a butt drill this morning, I do not appreciate those. **note** butt drills aren't as severe as they sound, just annoying.
We have to stop at her sister's too so that we can pick up some of heather's thing that were in storage there. Her sister should be having a baby any day now, hopefully soon!
Well cranky, crazy naked chick is out of the shower so I better get a move on. Talk to ya'll later!!!

11:09AM - TESTS
I've been taking lil emode tests all morning, my job is so demanding. lol
Here is my flavor!
Mmm ... mocha! Strong and rich � but not too sweet � you're the flavor of late nights and early mornings. A coffeehouse regular, you've cornered the market on deep thoughts and probablyy have a little more than your fair share of brains. In fact, those who know you may even consider you an intellectual, a label that suits you just fine. Deep and thoughtful, you love the academic life � or at least the structured pursuit of knowledge. And, since hitting the books often means all-nighters, what better flavor than mocha to keep you company? Chocolaty and intense, you're a truly tasty treat.
So cute! Ya'll should take this one and let me know what flavor you are ;)

9:37PM - FRIDAY!
My cat is freaking out. He cries this awful cry like he's the tarzan of the cats and then bolts through the apartment. Then he repeats this 7 or 8 times before finally landing in his chair and falling asleep. This usually happens when JJ has decided he no longer wishes to play with him. Daddy is grumpy. Dodger is baby stupid. Its not a great mix.
Slinky is shedding his skin. Not a very pretty site I must admit. At least he has pretty new green skin underneath! I'm thinking he prefers very soft food. He likes nanners and grapes and lettuce. Not very big on apples. I think corn is ok with him too. I bought him a little leezard harness for a quarter the other day, that oughta be fun to get on him!
Our heat is out again, going on day two. Its supposed to be warm outside but its storming and the wind is keeping it nice and chilly out there. So the noisy space heater is in full affect. The cats seem ok though. Dodger never slows down long enough to get cold and daddy has plenty of insulation.
Fishies are doing well. Leah gave us a new tank, there was something desperately wrong with our old tank. Lost 3 fish :( We replaced them with 5 new ones though which are super neat. They are painted glass fish. They are perfectly see through with a stripe of neon color across the top and bottom. The pet store chickie told us they are injected with the color. We got a blue one, a yellow one, a pink one, a blue one, and a purple one.
Today I have to send out some resumes! How fun. My resume seems so brief...but impressive none-the-less. lol Heather got me the cutest little froggy thing. Its a little globe on a froggy base with a froggy inside and glitter instead of snow. I wuv it very much. We had chinese for dinner last night. I got the moo shoo shrimp, Heather found it completely disgusting. Anyone else out there like moo shoo shrimp...or pork...or beef?
Time for me to get cleaning, maybe play with the kitties for a bit!
Have a great day all :)
12:00PM - clocks
All my clocks and such are messed up. Boy do I suck. I am the world's biggest dumb bunny. The other night we blew a fuse in the kitchen. We though just this one outlet had gone. Heather couldn't find the fuse box so we just decided to do it on saturday. Theres no light down there and we couldn't see what to push or flip or whatever. Well today I realised that our fridge was out too. So all our food went bad :( Heather came home from work to help me clean it out and we did get the power back on. She totally blames me for this though I can tell :( I feel like such complete shit. blah on today. I want to go back to bed and forget today is even happening. Unfortunately our green painted glass fish bit the big one so I have to take it back to the pet store. This is disgusting.
I hope someone out there is having a good friday. ybeewF thanks for the heads up about my time!

9:39AM - Hello?
I think I've waited a sufficient ammount of time between entries. How are ya'll doin? Things are decent here. A new little baby kitty cat came to live with me. He is only 6 months old and his name is Dodger after the Artful Dodger. The name is very fitting. He is just about the cutest little thing I've ever seen! I wuv him very very much. Other than that not much is new :(
Heaather's birthday is on the 15th...HELP ME! I have no idea what to get her :(
I'll try to write more later today :)

12:47PM - Strange Days
Good Sunday everyone! Today has been interesting...
Heather's sister called at 7:30am, sweet to me cranky with heather, always a great way to start off the day! A little while later our landlord calls. Now whenever I write something he said, picture mr miagi saying it because our landlord is mr miagi. The other day he calls us and says "we going away for a week, maybe two maybe three. I think maybe we go to japan. keep eye out on house, nobody will be here...just leslie the dog lady." No problem. Although it seemed out that he had no idea how long he'd be gone or if they were positively going to Japan. This was Friday morning, about 6am. So today he calls from his cell phone. Asks how things are here. I said fine, no one has been around except for Leslie. We got his mail. He says thank you and to leave the mail at the bottom of the stairs..."I think we maybe come home today." I was like, ok, no problem! Then he calls back again and says "Don't tell no one we coming home. We come home in secret so if anyone asks say we not coming home" Does this seem ODD to anyone else? I have no idea whats going on, my guess is they got involved with the Marcuzzi or whatever you call the Japanese mafia. I'll keep ya'll posted. Anyway, Heather's mom and sister are coming into town today. They are coming over here so heather's sister can see the place and we're going to show them our videos from LA trip. Then we're all going to Maria's for some amazing Mexican food and then her sis and mom are off to the hockey game and Heather and I get to do laundry! woo hoo
Ok, enough chatter for now! laters sweeties
