Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story? [27 Jun 2016|06:34pm]
[ mood | sad ]

It has literally been 4 years since I posted in my live journal. I only logged in today because I needed to find out Kim's exact birthdate. This morning at midnight I had to make the decision to put her to sleep. Earlier in the evening she threw a blood clot and was suffering from pain and paralysis. So. I reluctantly made the decision to let her go. Which was as awful as could be expected.
I still have her sister Ruby, but it feels like another piece of my mom is gone. I'm really grateful for the 14 years I had with Kim, especially the last 8 of which I was particularly close to her. I have decided as a result that after these cats are gone, I will not be getting another. We have too many as it is.
I'm really glad I had Sal with me last night, I know how much he cared for her. This is the first time he'd ever had to experience something like this. He wasn't introduced to cats until he met me.
To catch any of my friends who might still remember me on this thing, I got married almost two years ago. We just got approved to buy a house and I have the best job I've ever had in my life right now. Woo Payroll!
A couple of weeks ago I got to see Bill Clinton speak in Fresno and then not long after Hillary. That was very exciting.
I'm currently watching the first season of NCIS on netflix to take my mind off things.

Friends! [03 Dec 2011|01:46pm]

I got to hang out with my dear friend michael today before work. He's an EMT and came through town to drop a patient at Children's and I ran to Starbucks to see him. Sucked it was only for ten minutes but he looked good.

It's going on a year that Jessica walked out on him and I think maybe he's finally found his footing. He looked good, lost some weight and seemed happy. Minus the 96 he's working.

Work is so far so good. Trying to wrap up my lunch and people keep asking me questions. I'm hidden behind a fucking counter on my phone. Clearly I'm on my lunch. Laaaaaame.

Random [29 Nov 2011|09:43pm]

At work wishing I was not at work. Work is for losers. Not really. It pays the bills after all.

I made Nano again this year which makes me happier than ever. And I actually let someone read it this year. One step closer to being published.

I'm having déjà vu. I feel like I already posted this.

Anyhoo. Breaks over. Back to work!

Makeup [28 Nov 2011|06:18pm]

So I found out today that Avon tests their products on animals and now i need to find a new mineral powder foundation. I'm super picky which makes it even harder. I know all about bare minerals but I feel like it makes my face look dirty.

Mac is super expensive but I'll go that route if I have to based on my morals. I don't abide by animal testing.

I must go through the entire list of companies that do and adjust my consumerism.

[ mood | busy ]

Whoa this is a blast from the past. I have got to get back into this thing and quick like. I keep paying for it and never using it. Although honestly right now I must get back to my NaNo. I'm 9,000 words away from being a muh fuh winner!

So post one. I'm going to try an not be distracted and whip this shit out in a couple of hours. I miss all of you who I have not found on twitter yet.

[ mood | hopeful ]

I wish each and every one of you lovely friends a safe and happy 2011. I only hope this year can top last, because for the first time in a long time, I had a good year. Lots of new things happened, I met wonderful new people and had a blast.

Things can only get better.

Life Ain't Always Beautiful [01 Jan 2011|11:35pm]
[ mood | disappointed ]

A very dear friend of mine called me tonight and told me how his girlfriend had left him, and he was devastated. I am in shock, they have been together for ages, they were an amazing couple and I was not told at all. She is one of my best friends, and I love her and him to pieces and I'd just spent two days with them earlier this last month. I Had no good words of advice for him, seeing as how I looked up to them as the perfect couple and I don't know what to do.

And after having spoken to her, I now am quite convinced it's over between them, She said she didn't feel for him the same and felt it was not fair for him to be with her if she didn't love him the way he does her. He calls me all the time and he's devastated. They were in the process of buying a house and she just walked away. And I have no idea how to help him, other than to listen and be supportive. I know what it's like to have your heart broken, I've just never seen it devastate a man this way.

I wish there were more I could do to help, he's been a dear friend to us, they both have been and she didn't even tell me, I had to ask.

What a way to end 2010.

I gotcha bitch! [24 Dec 2010|03:14pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Just wrapped Sal's presents and printed my NOH8 photos. I printed a little tree for us to put our gifts under. Teegan makes it impossible to have a tree. Spent the day watching Love Actually, Cops and basically doing nothing. I have to go to work in an hour which blows but I get another extra hour for the week, I'm already pulling in an extra four hours for the week. Way to help pay off my car faster.

I need to go do my hair, thankfully, Jess is taking me to work, and she also agreed to come and get me an hour early since I was called in. Hopefully it stays busy, goes by fast and I can come home and not have a real Christmas.

My cousin had a heart attack yesterday and we only found out about it on Facebook. And then my cousin's daughter didn't respond to anyone so I called my sister then my cousin, then his mom, which is my cousin Troy's sister to finally get some damn info. Stupid family. But he's home already so he's doing well, which makes me happy. I adored him as a child.

Well my hair won't do itself, so I gotta go curl this shit. Boooyah.

I'ma be Oprah rich! [23 Dec 2010|07:00pm]
[ mood | cold ]

Just took the bug into the dealer to finally get her fixed. Some dude tried hard to dick me around on a price but John at Clovis Vee Dub took very good care of me and set me up with a helluva deal on a tranny and the labor. The other dude was gonna charge me 2500 for the tranny and 2500 for labor, this guy is doing 2800 on the tranny and 616 on the labor. Fuck that other dood.

Pretty positive the bf hasn't bought me a Christmas present yet. Picture me with a sadface. Whatev.

Other than that, life has been pretty much the same ol same ol. Trying to get to work on time and not call in because of the car, still playing with makeup and being lazy. I have three days off next week, the week that my car may be finished. AAAAAAH.

I can't wait to have my car back, I miss that damn thing. I also miss my independence, being able to just get into my car and get a damn soda, you know?

[ mood | bored ]

Ugh. I hate ebay. I'm stalking several iPod Touches for xmas and I hate the waiting. But if I can get a deal, I'll be exceedingly happy. Marry Christmas to meeee!

I did a whole lot of nothing all day yesterday. I did the laundry and cooked dinner, and then ran the dishes through the dishwasher. So I guess watching Despicable Me for like five hours was a cover for me actually getting some things done. Dinner was really good too.

Today I'm folding laundry, putting it away and watching the grip of movies I rented. I vow not to putter away boringly on the internet all day. Except for checking on my ipods.

I could really go for some starbucks. I hate not having a car. I've seen nothing but the walls of this apt and the laundry room since Friday night. Bah.

It's so fluffy!! [11 Dec 2010|12:00pm]
[ mood | good ]

Ok so as the end of the year approaches, I must come to terms with the fact that I neglect my LJ. I used to spend so much time with the wonderful people here, and I don't anymore.

Times are a changin'. I am going to start including LJ in my daily routine. This thing has YEARS of my life documented and saved for my lame ass brain, when I can't remember. For instance, I can find out exactly how old Kimmy and Ruby are, because I am certain I wrote about it on my LJ.

Most of you, if not all of you were there for me when my mom passed away, and you've always delighted my life. So that's it, twitter, I can share my life with the both of you.

In case you haven't guessed, I'm off for the weekend, and I have no car, as my transmission went out. So I rented a shit load of movies, am planning on doing laundry, cleaning, and vegetating. Once my hot chocolate is finished. Oh baby.

As for me, I no longer work at ATL and I have transferred stores to work with my awesome old manager Joe. We have a new kitten, a polydactyl named Pauley Pilar who is a big fat whiney pain in my butt. And Sal is upset because he thinks she loves me more. She was supposed to be his cat, but I keep telling him, he has Teegan. That's his cat. =)

I'll probably spam the shit out of this thing. Today. A friend on Twitter linked me some fanfic, because I was bored as shit yesterday and it brought me to LJ and I was like OMG, I miss lj. Plus I want to find out Kim's bday. She's been sick, but knock on wood, since her last bout when cerulean_breeze was here, she's been fine. She lost the whole pound and a half she gained and is still a skinny minnie. I believe she was born in 2002, April estimate, but I want to know for certain for her vet, should we have to go back.

I so don't want to do laundry. I wish it would just do itself. Like it was emo or something.

NCIS FANFEST 2010!! [24 Sep 2010|01:37pm]
[ mood | excited ]

So Fanfest is in full swing, and as always, it a blast. Currently sitting in our hotel room with Mara, Jon, Sal and cerulean_breeze. Drinking, eating, making plans. Last night I had the opportunity to buy Pancho Demmings (Gerald) a drink last night, and have him actually sit with us and chat. Which was EPIC!

Tonight we're going to have a panel with Craig Harvey, and then Doug Reilly...the prop guy, which will be EXCITING!

Then who knows who might show up when the booths get going later.
