The appeal of Rose
is that I could do that. You probably could too. Drop the mundane life to travel around time with the Doctor, who just happens to be pretty good looking and easy to get along with. And it’s easier to put myself in Rose’s shoes than any other female character that I’ve read or seen recently, because they didn’t give her any bizarre personality quirks or make her super...
Welcome to Texas.
A roach just flew right by my head. I felt the air from it’s wings rustle my hair. It landed on the wall, and is now crawling on the ceiling. Good thing I have a designated Roach/Bug Killing Device: the AAA Kentucky/Tennessee guidebook I got before my road trip to Austin. If I ever use it again for its original purpose, I’m ripping the covers off first. UPDATE: While I was...
I HAVE A JOB
Finally. I’m going to be a bakery sales rep for Central Market. It’s like Whole Foods, or Wegman’s, only better. They’re going to give me 40 hours even though the position is not technically full time. And they give health insurance to all of their employees. And did I mention that the store is amazing and awesome and smells super delicious all the time? I’m...
The Good and the Bad
I had a group interview today. That was a weird dynamic. I have no idea how I did, that’s how weird it was. Also, I realized how dirt poor I am, and how I’m going to need to borrow from a fund I’m not supposed to touch just to get by next month. So I spent money on a beer to console myself. Go figure. And I haven’t heard from the company I want to work for. I found...
stumblingneon: giraffesgiraffes: I’ve been having dreams about teeth a lot lately. Teeth falling out, shopping for toothpaste … mainly just teeth falling out. I wonder if it’s my subconscious trying to tell me that I really need to start a flossing habit. It’s a really, really common dream! So, I know dream science might be total crap, but I’ve heard from multiple sources, including a...

Wow, me too. (via whatkindofgirl)
Things are looking up
I just got a package from my parents filled with pots, pans, a set of knives, and a rice cooker. My parents have been rice-cooker devotees since the early 70’s, when they asked their Asian chef friend how he cooked rice, and he said a rice cooker was the only way to do it. They’ve had the same rice cooker since then, and it still makes perfect rice. Anyway, back to the point: the...
Party Cat →
This is what Gwen’s cat is like.
Happy birthday to me.
Since Gwen is my only good friend here, she’s taking me to dinner. Then, I am tagging along the party of a friend of hers who has my same birthday. So, it will still be fun, and not lonely!
Why Did the Tyrannosaurus Rex Have Short Arms?
fakescience: I love jokes about T-Rexes having tiny arms.
It WAS an adventure, Amelia! I stepped out of my door and CRUNCH! I jumped to the side after being startled by stepping on something extremely crunchy. Something that used to be alive. I thought it was a bug at first, but looking closer at the pulpy disgusting mess, I realized it was a snail that had crawled to my doorstep to escape the flooding, only to meet his destiny under the sole of my...
A lull. I’m making a run for it.
I brought the rain to Virginia, and now I've...
I am trapped by the rain. Sometimes, it’s nice to stay out of the rain, to spend the day lazing about, reading, watching movies, and relaxing. But I am tired of looking at TVs and computers, and letters in books, and the other ways I’ve procrastinated working on my resume. I have a headache. I want to go outside. I want to go for a walk. I want to go for a bike ride, and sit in...
I have Internet!
One of the many wonderful things about living in the same apartment complex as Gwen is that I was able to set up a wireless router in her place, and now we get to split the internet bill and I don’t have to deal with getting it set up over here. So I’m back! This will make my life a thousand times easier.
