Reason #1734 why I dont like this time of year.


Thats it. No fancy reason. I just dont like people. I mean, you guys are okay...well...Some of you are okay....but generally. I just dont like people.

Today hatred started in the parking lot, of Toys R Us. Im on the hunt to find a second Nintendo Wii controller, cause Wii only comes with one..and I have 2 neices...we dont want them fighting over it.

This girl, and her ogre of a boyfriend are walking through my parking spot after I turn into it. Im half way in the spot, but have to wait, and then they give me a dirty look.

I get into the store, and because I know how to walk, and not mosey like im the only person on Earth, I catch up to this couple, and right infront of me, the girl bends over to fix her boot, and her pants are half way down her ass, and her turquoise lace thong is hanging out for the entire store to see. Well, I saw for sure, and so did the dad and his 7 year old son behind us....We exchanged shocked looks....

So I do what anyone wou....No. Scratch that. Any straight male wouldnt do what I did. Let me rephrase.

The girl bends over, ass and thong hanging out....I say "EWWWW Your ASS is hanging out." She jumps up, and her boyfriend turns around to see who I was. Again...the dirty look. My Reply? "Pimp your girlfriend out on your own time buddy."...and went on my way.

For those of you who think im making this up, and think that I would never have the guts to say that in public to a total stranger, ask Ash to tell you about the time I told some lady to fuck off at the grocery store.

Black Friday Insanity

I can honestly say that ive never gotten up at 5:30 in the morning to go shopping, but I did....and it was worth every minute. Well, at first we said "this sucks..." but then LD found her jacket...and it all turned around after that point. :o)

Me and LD decided to go to the states for Black Friday, the Boxing Day for America. Can you believe they dont have boxing day!!!...but I di...Hm. Okay

Boxing Day: December 26th. Gigantic sales, lots of people shopping.
Black Friday: Friday after Yanksgiving, gigantic sales, kicks off holiday shopping hours, lots of people shopping.

If you live close enough to any international border (Canada and Yanks), I suggest you make it to the resepective country's shopping extravaganza.

Anyway....we crossed the border at about 6:30, and started our day....Ya ya...we did lots of, we werent jostled by anyone, but there are 2 things I must discuss (becuase I totally have to ask).

What, is WITH these jackets? Seriously. We saw 2 people wearing them...they're big bright orange home depot jackets....there's just no words to explain them. Really. Someone help me out with this. Is it the newest cult's required uniform??

I have NOT been to Kmart in about 20 years, but it was in the shopping vicinity, and Kmart was one of our victims. We park and LD points out some bumper sticker that says "lovin' the lord" or something like that.....Of course, she's wearing her devil t-shirt that says "God's busy, how can I help you"....Annnnnd of course I've just bought my "One Way ticket to hell: No returns, no regrets" t-shirt.

We go inside, first thing LD picks up? Right. The pocket Bible....pocket bible? Seriously? I wish I had a picture to show you guys of how big this thing was....but there's no way it would fit in anyone's pocket. Suitcase, yes. Pocket, no.....and then of course onto the movie/cd section where we saw "Bible songs for Kids". Thats when we left, but im totally positive if I had looked I would have found my Jesus clock there for sale.

Regardless, Black Friday was a lot of fun. Getting up at 5:30, no problem. I acutally jumped out of bed 10 minutes before my alarm went off I was so excited.....but, after shopping all day, and then having to go to work from 2:30-11:30....not so fun. I didnt even have time to sit and look at the things that I bought. Ya, I do that. Especially after a successful shopping day.

Sigh of Relief...3 weeks to go.

I just submitted a GIGANTIC assignment online that is due tomorrow. Except when I went to go submit it, I saw an email from our prof, who, at 5pm today, changed the due date from tomorrow at 9am, to Saturday at 9am. *thats a huge piss sick, and would have laid in bed all day if I had checked my school email before I started finishing it at 5pm*...Ironic, its the same time she sent the email.

BUT its done. It was a huge assignment. My Annotated Bibliography for my thesis....yikes....21 pages people. TWENTY ONE PAGES for an annotated bibliography. Thats not even any of my assignment, those 21 pages were just the ten sources im SO happy its done, AND who cares that its not due until Saturday, mine's done, and gone. And im relieved.

Now, with that assignment behind me, I only have about 10 more to go in the next 3 weeks of class. (But considering I only have 4 more days of class in the upcoming 3 weeks, id say thats a lot.)...I can get it done....Im so excited...the end of the semester is SO close....

Blogger Confessional© The Truth.

I went to volunteer today in my first classroom with Miss Ash's sister.

Well, thats not technically true. I worked from September to June (2004-2005) in the classrooms at the mental institution in MA.

So...let me rephrase.

Today, I went to volunteer in my first classroom that didnt have kids with conduct disorder, mental illness, or crisis situations every 5 seconds. It was sorta fun.

I wasnt sure that I wanted to be a teacher up until this point, but I assure you, its a lot more fun than I imagined it was going to be, and for that, I am thankful....because I cant imagine working in a job I hate. was a nice surprise.

Gummi Bears and Jesus

A day ive truely waited for, for like 18 years.....Gummi Bears has been released on DVD. I know we have discussed awesome 80's cartoons a million times here in the past, but this one was my favorite, and I went out and bought it for myself. I watched the first episode last night, and it was just as good as I remember...
As for the Jesus Clock. The resident who gave it to me was kicked out of our shelter for threatening behavior....and when its a crisis house for abused women and children, that kind of stuff is really something that isnt tolerated. It was her like 3rd chance to change her attitude...but she refused...But I digress.

I dont have to give the Jesus Clock back, and was thinking of doing a little Pessimism Inc© Blogger Giveaway......maybe. I told Miss Ash that I was thinking of doing this, and she laughed and said that it was a great idea....Maybe thats just us. We thought it was hilarious....Who thinks what?

Oh..and Ash. If no one wants get to have it. :o)

My Top 5

With my 29th birthday now behind me, and having gone to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, quasi-spontaneously, I was prompted to consider my top 5 favorite songs of all time. Its something me and LD discussed on the drive back, and it really made me think.

In no particular order:

Kate Bush - Running up that Hill
Pink Floyd - Wish you were Here
Peter Gabriel - Steam
Sade - By your Side
John Lennon - Instant Karma

So...come on. Tell me...I wanna know.

Birthday Wrap-up

Okay...So I thought skipping my birthday would be a lot better this year, seeing as everyone was going to be busy, or away *except for my lovely LD and H*, and I had to work the entire weekend...but it actually turned out to be a pretty good time.

Friday, I spent the day shopping with a friend of mine in Toronto. She's a cop, so she's usually pretty busy...but we had the same day off, so we hung out....And she ended up meeting this gorgeous guy, and on the way home she thanked me for my big mouth and sociability. She said that if I wasnt there, she never would have had the guts to start up a random conversation with him like I seemingly do with every stranger I meet....

Sunday (My actual b-day) Miss Ash's mom and sister came and brought me flowers, candy, and balloons...SO CUTE!!! They wanted to take me out for dinner, but I was working, so they came down instead. Love that! They brought me roses.

When I got home, there was another bouquet of gerber daisies sitting on the counter from my kick ass neighbors. They're in my bedroom, I didnt want to carry them down, but trust me, they're awesome!

I go to work Sunday, the residents at the shelter know its my of them decides to get me a gift......I dont know what has posessed her to do so...but this is what she came up with.

Now, Incase you arent sure you're seeing it right, or cant quite make out what it is....Its a large picture of Jesus....with a tiny little clock on the bottom right corner.....Thats right. She bought me a Jesus clock. The picture was hard to take, because of the mirror frame around the picture. (I imagine your blank stares, are similar to what mine were, and are still now)...I dont know if I can keep it. It might create a conflict of interest. I put a memo in to my PM....she'll let me know.

After the Jesus Clock...I wasnt sure how my week could have possibly gotten better *ahem*, but LD and I decided, very spontaneously, to make the drive to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Clevland, OH. It's only about a 3 and a half hour drive from here....and It was SOOOO totally worth every minute. They have The Clash exhibit on now until April...if you are a Clash fan(like me and LD totally are), you dont want to miss it.

I cant even explain the Pink Floyd display...but if you are a fan, and love them from the depths of your insides (like LD and I do), I promise you, you wont be disappointed. It was so incredible.....

Just things like Janis Joplin's Porche, John Lennon's glasses, original hand written song lyrics, the deed to Graceland. It was incredible, and gave me a total new appreciation for the bands I already loved, and music in general. We werent allowed to take pictures inside, but it was an amazing day, and i recomend it to everyone.

A whole lot of redneck fun

I was supposed to blog about a whole bunch of funny redneck stuff after a lengthy conversation with someone who lives in Georgia...but I cant remember what any of it was. I think that I was so horrified by the concepts that I was learning about, that my brain immediately blocked them all out.

Except dipping.

Shoving tobacco into your mouth, and like...sucking on it. And as if that wasnt bad enough, people have to spit the black tar out into cups that they constantly carry around with them. I cant even BEGIN to imagine what that would smell like....a cup, just for spit.

Is it just me, or does anyone else think this sounds incredibly sexy??
