Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

So this is my second run at this... I got carried away c&v'ing and accidently closed the window without publishing! *GRR*

So here's my best recollection of what I was saying:

Ok so I dunno what the hell kinda face that is, but here I am inspecting the tree.

And here's a pic of David and me in a semi-decent pose...

And here we are after it's all set up and our tongues are sticking out - panting. It's tough work getting that tree up - it's an 8 - 9 footer (in case you hadn't noticed).

So I'm pretty stoked with the pics this phone takes. I'm pretty glad I've got it, even though it's only 'cause my demon dog destroyed my last one. Oh but he is awful cute, though.

my little man... heh...

more pics returned (finally!)

here are a few more pics from our date back last week.

This is from when were in the pet store. Gawd my face looks fat.

This is David with a huge Homer Santa. We were in this awesome store with all these games... we must've spent at least half an hour playing with the brain teasers and such.

And here I am with Homer. I still look fat. Am I the only one noticing a trend?

The following was written at the hospital outside the E4 elevators @ ~ 0720:

So I�m sitting here at the hospital waiting for my friend Chris. He�s managed to go and get himself nominated to do vitals for the morning shift.
He ~knows~ how important today is!!
oh gawd I�m so excited about finally getting the tree. I�m starting to get nervous and worry that maybe we won�t get it all done in time. If nothing else we do need some sort of nice background for the Christmas cards for my family back home. Dunno what David�s gonna get his mom. I wonder how she�d feel about getting a card for christmas?
So I just now noticed that there are lines on the screen already. David�s right. I�ve gotta get a screen protector. And I�ve gotta do it soon. Of course I could always just leave the computer open indefinely. Now that won�t do, will it?
So where to buy it from? There�s some d00d auctioning some on ebay. They�re ridiculous, though. It�s a piece of a chamoi with an iron on retro-apple (the rainbow) decal in the lower right hand corner. Looks aweful cheesy. David�s got a dark brown one. It looks for the most part to be just a piece of cloth... so I�m thinking maybe I�ll just buy some material and make my own. I can use David�s to kinda run off. We�ll see.
Oh! There�s my boss!
Still waiting on Chris.
*bored outta my mind*
I�m really digging my new phone. I�ve been taking all sorts of pics. I�ve already uploaded them so I�m gonna have to host �em (using that awesome hosting plan I have, btw) and then show �em off.
I�ve got a round about idea as to how I want my site to look. I�m leaning towards just taking loads of pics with my phone �till I find a decent amount that I want to show off. And I�ll just run those off my main page.
How�s that sound?

Ooh! Chris is off!
*packs up computer and hurries to buy a Christmas tree*

so I got a call from CompUSA this morning... saying that not only is the monitor out but it's not booting up.
So that means it's either gotten worse since I left it or that their tech is retarded.
We've decided it's that the tech is retarded.

So they're shipping to apple (barely?!?!) either this past afternoon or tomorrow morning. I'm seriously hoping they don't jack up my hard drive. I'll be super peeved if I lose all my music!

My ipod will be here within the week. I'm thinking of going by there and picking up my comp and moving my music to the ipod and then taking it back in.
I've heard a story about some d00d who got his drive reformatted without them even asking him!!!

so anyway...

gotta get in the zone

gotta get focused and gotta go to work!

I'm so tired though. I slept all night... and all day...

I need to buckle down, though. Somehow I've managed to get 10 chapters behind in my history class!

So now I'm here at Daybreak with David waiting on 2230 so I can pack up and go to work.

We rented Enter the Matrix for our date. David played for 5 hours straight yesterday, and he's fixing to start playing again.

Maybe I should get him an xbox for Christmas?

We went on a date!!!

So we went on a date last night... We stopped by the pet store and took some pics with my new phone. Oh wait, ya'll don't know about my new phone. heh.
Anyway, here's a pic of David.

Dunno how that's gonna show up.
Anyhow.. Here's what's been going on in my life the last few days:

Saturday Nov 22
I spent all day making empanadas therefore I got no sleep. And I had worked Friday night and had to go to work Saturday night.

Sunday Nov 23
I slept all day.
Since Squishy destroyed my last phone (the Uproar) that I kept on my headboard, I've started keeping my new phone (the skinny one) on a shelf next to me bed. Well there's also a lamp on that shelf. I slept all day since I hadn't slept the day before - and I'm a fairly heavy sleeper. I was having this whacked out nightmare about some d00d trying to kill me, David, AJ, and some other chick who I know but couldn't place. Anyway... in my dream we were running from this psycho killer and had to keep jumping through windows and there was loads of glass breaking all over the place. Now irl Squishy had been in bed with me but I set him down to go poopies and tinkle or some other reason. And either I fell back to sleep or I was only half awake when I put him down but for whatever reason he was down on the floor instead of in bed with me. And he managed to pull on the lamp chord - so the lamp fell and broke (hence all the glass breaking in my dream) and my phone got knocked off the shelf too. Now this phone is awful skinny. And since it was on the floor and Squishy, as we know, has a history of liking to chew on phones... well let's just say he chewed it to pieces.
~and~ broke my lamp.
We went to hastings that night... chilled with David 'till closing.

Monday Nov 24
Well I had a quiz this morning but caught a train on the way to school so I got to class super late and missed it. *grr* So we went back to Lubbock so I could buy a new cell phone. I got a new Samsung - not the one that twists, but it's still a picture phone. They let me "exchange" my chewed up phone and I signed a 2 year contract so I got this phone for like... $100. I'm sooo stoked about that. Now I'm trying to talk David into letting me buy him a new phone for Christmas (as long as he signs a contract! lol) since the phone he has now is older than me.
We went to Hastings again that night... and the screen on my g3 went out! Btwn David, me, and this d00d who works there we couldn't get it working again...
I went to bed early. This whole blog thing has really taken a lot out of me.

Tuesday Nov 25
I took the g3 to CompUSA this morning. They said it'd take 2 weeks... possibly 1 and a half if I'm lucky... They're sending it in to Apple to get it checked out. Apparently they don't have an apple certified technician. So if I ever do get that whole certified thing... I guess I could apply there.
**r00 it may not be what you want to hear. If it bothers you I'll send you the g4 instead!**
I got hit on while I was standing in line. It was hilarious. See David and I go by there fairly often... often enough for the d00d who specializes in Macs to know us. And some d00d... he's all... "That's a nice shirt you're wearing," (I was wearing this little navy blue shirt with a mt dew green caffeine molecule on it) to me. And I was like.. "Do I know you?" And so I just kinda stare at him 'till he walks away. And I guess his buddies were ragging on him 'cause a few minutes later he comes back to me and says, "That's a nice bag you've got." I've gotta admit my bag ~is~ pretty awesome. It's an orange and yellow Timbuk2 messenger bag. And so I'm still standing there staring at him when that Mac d00d walks up and says, "You've got no chance in hell. Her bf has a 17 inch PowerBook." Now that gets me to laugh (funny story about why David ~doesn't~ have a 17") and I'm like, "Actually, it's a 15." So anyway the d00d looks at me like I'm some kinda freak and just walks away. And the Mac d00d chats with me about what's wrong with my comp and how David's comp is doing and such. He's a nice guy.
And then this evening David and I went on a date!!! He told me we would last night, but I didn't really take him seriously. See he spends so much time studying, I mean... we never actually stay home but usually we're just set up at some coffee shop doing homework.
I couldn't decide what to do.
We went buy the mall... I wanted to go to the arcade and play some games. We saw a friend of his there, who recently moved in with another of David's friends (who just so happens to be a gamer) and they invited us over! I was ~so~ tempted!
So we hung around the mall for a bit... I had big plans to buy stuff but I just didn't find anything worth taking home. So then we stopped by a software store and then the toy store to look into buying a game to play at home. We couldn't decide so we headed over to Blockbuster.
Blockbuster has a limited supply of games but it's hella cheaper so we picked out... Celebrity Death Match and Enter the Matrix.
So for our big date we ordered a pizza and gamed!

heh... so that's what's been going on with me. How 'bout you?

common courtesy

The following is meant for BoB:

Now you said you didn't want to hear from me again and that you want me to stay out of your life. So do me the same courtesy, will you? I've tried to be your friend, but I get the feeling that's not what you want.

If you really want to discuss the intimates of our relationship, please keep in mind that it's people in the Valley that are reading this. You will be the one who is affected.
It makes no difference to me. My friends already know what happened between us, and they probably know better than you do. That's probably my fault, but at the time it was the best I could do.

If this is what you want I will kindly tell everyone exactly what I was doing at that club.

Just think it over. Once it's up, it won't be coming down.

I've always tried to keep things between us; to portray the image of the perfect wonderful relationship.
If you really want me to stop that pretending I will.

he's not a drunk

Well this blog's popularity has certainly risen in the last few days since all the drama btwn me and my ex (BoB).
I can't say it's something I expected.

In about 2 hours I received 5 im's from people I don't know asking about my blog. And they had all taken BoB's side.

For some reason everyone thinks he's a drunk.

Now if you go back and read what I wrote all I said is that he drinks. I never said he drinks a lot. You must keep in mind that I have not seen him almost 2 years, and contact between us has been sporadic. I don't know much about what he does anymore. And while it may sound like he drinks a lot, it's not the amount he consumes that bothers me. What bothers me is that he's consuming at all.

I have nothing against anyone who drinks; most of my friends do. It's just not something I look for in someone I'm dating. That may sound like a lot to ask of someone but I really don't think I'm too picky; all I look for is someone who doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, and has strong religious opinions. Now when I say strong religious opinions that's all I want. I don't care what you believe (or don't believe) in, just as long as you're comfortable enough to discuss your beliefs and hold your ground. I can ~not~ stand when someone has "faith" just 'cause they were told to.

That aside. BoB is a good guy. He really is. I have nothing against him, and would even go so far as to say I love him. What he and I had was a wonderful thing, for the most part. Everything was forgivable for years and years. I have nothing bad to say about him.

So then why are he and I not together?
I could tell you, but to use this medium would be ridiculous.

And another question I've gotten a lot is: "Why are you with David?"
I love David. And yes, I did say I love BoB. And I do. Just differently. What BoB and I had was... young and naive and uncontrollable. What I have with David is... fierce and consuming, empowering and complete.

"What's so great about him?"
One thing that I love about David... possibly the thing I hold most dear... he holds me when I cry. Things have been rough for me this past year... not getting through the lvn program, the constant drama with both my home life and my family here, the things I'm going through at work, and my mixed feelings for BoB... Sometimes it's almost too much for me to deal with all at once, especially since a few years ago my future looked ~so~ bright. And he holds me - he wipes my tears and hugs me and listens to what I'm trying to deal with. He is the person I can lean on. And I pray to God that I am strong enough to hold him when he needs to lean on me.

Now that I've reviewed the FAQs I'm going to also mention that BoB does not want to be contacted. Please if you have anything to say, whether it be to just let him know you think he's right, please don't email or message him.
This is my blog and all my contact information is on here so feel free to contact me, just leave him be. Thanks.

funky empanadas

ok so here are some pics of the first batch of empanadas I have ever made.
Now remember, these are the first empanadas I've ever made. So excuse how gross they look.

Now they don't taste too bad... just the bread is a little sweeter than it should be. So for my next batch I've gotta remember to lay off the sugar.

::: posted by tinafish at 11:49 PM :::

should've taken some pics

yeah so I'm making the goo for the empanadas right now. The pumpkins been cooking for the last... oh... about 7 hours now. It's coming along nicely. I finally got all the skin shaved off now I'm just waiting on the cinammon and sugar to sink in.
David's gone to get us lunch and then he's gonna go study. I can't leave since the stove is on and all. With my luck the whole building'd burn down. I may take a snooze here in a bit, but I'll still run the risk of being burned alive. Actually, I should really be working on getting the masa worked out.
oooh... food's here.

::: posted by tinafish at 4:39 PM :::

powdered doughnuts and twizzlers is ~not~ the breakfast of champions

I'm so tired. I didn't sleep too much... only about 10 hours or so. lol. But I'm seriously dragging. I went to Speeds yestermorning and played some pool with the guys. I was kinda hurt 'cause this chick walked in and they all started drooling and stuff. Something about her being the only girl in the whole place. *rolling eyes*

And I found some pumpkins!!! *stoked* Dunno if I mentioned it but I've been looking for some. See I'm spending Thanksgiving at David's with his family and stuff, and I'm supposed to make empanadas to take so I can have something to donate to the table. Only thing is, I've never made them before. I called my mom a while back to get the recipe, and she based it on the recipe for tortillas! Guess what else I've ~never~ made!!!
So anyway... the experiment begins today! I bought 3 pumpkins so I can be sure and maybe at least get one of them right. And then there's the whole story of the masa. I'm fairly confident I can get the pumpkin part of the empanadas right, it's the masa that's got me worried. I only bought 10 lbs of flour and 5 lbs of sugar - hope I don't have to go out and buy more.

Oh and I've finally decided what I'm gonna get David for Christmas! It is completely and utterly useless! And I'm gonna have him borrow my dryer for a while... and I've gotta get him something else too. A serious gift. I dunno... a wallet maybe?
heh -> cliff's suggestion

finally getting my money's worth

For those of you who hadn't noticed... I'm finally getting my money's worth when it comes to the whole comment system I'm using. I've been getting comments!

So here's the deal with my ex:
--disclaimer: BoB if this bothers you I'm sorry but it was my life too--

So BoB and I started dating back before I started high school; the summer before my freshman year when I was... almost 13. Now I know that sounds kinda bad but we didn't go out or anything... didn't even hold hands... we did the whole giggling and stuff, blush when we talked to each other... we were sparring partners at our dojo mostly. We dated up to... my second year of college.
Things were so awesome the first few years. So incredibly awesome. But I'm a real jealous person and I was a lot younger then too. So over the course of our dating I managed to alienate him from his friends, his family, and his coworkers. I purposely did things to make him jealous, I even got him fired once or twice. Yeah, I was such a different person. So he began to react to me - to become jealous without being prompted. And he was always very aggressive. Now don't take that the wrong way, he never hurt me. But we both have tempers and we were both just kids.
When I graduated high school I got into this school in Houston (partly because they gave me a scholarship, mostly because that was the only place he'd go to) and we moved. I lived on campus and he moved in with his mom. More stuff happened. He moved back home and I followed him.
blah blah blah.
When I turned 19 I signed for a truck for him. At this point I alienated my family. About 2 months later he totaled it. And left me with the bill. My insurance company... well... let's just say I won't recommend them if you're gonna total your vehicle before you've made a payment on it. Stuff was getting pretty bad btwn us.
I kept wanting to work things out and he kept wanting to never hear from me again. Here's where I alienated my friends.
I realized I'd never be able to get over him in that environment, so I moved. Overnight. I moved across the state - over a thousand miles. So now I'm here and he's there. And for some reason my family back home decided to take his side.
So here I am across the state with no friends and no one to trust.
So I started dating pretty much when I got here - a sort of filler to keep me from calling him. And I got engaged. That didn't work out. Got engaged again. Didn't work out either. Got engaged 2 more times, neither worked out. One thing I find interesting is I never even kissed any of the guys I was engaged to. Somehow in about 2 months each, they managed to fall in love with me, pick out a ring, and propose. Notice I dated BoB for over 6 years!
Anyhow... after I got through the whole engagement thing I went back to dating around. I changed who I was dating about every 2 months, and finally around last January I decided I was gonna date a lot. So I was seeing 5 or so guys when I met David.
I seriously wanted him to give me a reason to stay home the first time I met him. I managed to spend Valentine's with him and he's been the only guy I've seen since. Godwilling things will go well btwn us and in a couple of years we'll move to Houston and I can get back to real school.

With that said... I shall go have lunch.

oh gawd I'm going to hell...

so there's this billboard on the way to school. It's got a picture of this d00d wearing sunglasses and it says, "Climbed Mt. Everest. Blind."
Now I know this is gonna sound so bad but I really don't think he had the same experience that say... I would have. ya know? I think that maybe at some point someone maybe helped him along so he wouldn't... you know... die or something.
I could be wrong, I know. And I'm certainly unpc right now. But I just find that billboard a little... deceiving.
what do you think?

::: posted by tinafish at 5:46 PM :::


well I'm sitting here blogging when I should be doing my homework. I didn't do it last night (big surprise) 'cause David had tempted me with going out on a date. We didn't (who'd have guessed?). We ended up staying home, watching tv, and going to bed early.
As I mentioned last night I talked to my ex. That's always interesting. I feel that I may have... overstepped my boundries in our newfound friendship. Just we're both always walking on eggshells. It's not like I don't want him to move on and be happy and find a new girlfriend. I do. I really do. Just I was so shocked to hear him say that last night. *sigh*
Anyhow. I'm going to do my best to stay out of his business.

My stomach hurts. Too much Pez on an empty stomach. I want Chinese food. Maybe I can talk David into us playing a normal couple and going out for some Teriyaki Chicken... ooh! maybe I can convince him to have sushi!

I just found out my ex drinks. I dunno... I always thought I'd be able to respect him; that he'd never be able to do anything that just made me feel... like I don't know him.
At this point it's not my place...

I've been neglecting

I've not posted in a while - and it's certainly not for a lack of things going on.

gawd one of the things I ~absolutely~ hate is when a guy is trying to convince me to go out with him even though I'm already in a "committed" rltnship. Now I'm not trying to single you out (you know who you are) but geez have a little respect for both of us!

We ate at Cheddar's today. It wasn't that great. And the company was a little... hostile. I dunno. It's not my place... he is one of David's friends... but this is my blog...
Yeah, he was rude. Seriously antisocial. He kept ragging on either David or me or both of us... And if it wasn't an outright insult there were veiled insults flying all over the place. It was weird! I've met this guy before and he'd always been nice enough; dunno what was up with him today. And David's such a sweetie - kept making excuses for his friend. Blah blah blah. Thing is, I wasn't only getting agitated because of what this d00d was saying about me... but he was ragging on David too. I dunno... I'm crazy about David... knocking him just won't sit well with me no matter who you are (see above also!). So anyway... enough about that.

My new computer came in. It's not as pretty as the one I have now. I'm gonna buy a colored keyboard protector for it, so maybe that'll help it some. I've not used it all. I really need to hop to it and start moving my files and music and stuff.

Squishy's being a pain. It's not entirely his fault, though. *sigh* He knocked over my laundry hampers and stuff... so looks like I'm doing all sorts of laundry tomorrow. I'm gonna see about maybe stopping by Wal-Mart on my way home and buying a laundry hamper that hangs over a door or something. And I need to borrow David's steam vac to clean the carpet before I switch rooms.
Speaking of rooms... we got these 10% off coupons from Home Depot that expire at the end of the month so I need to get my bum over there and buy my bathroom!

For the life of me I just could not fall asleep this morning. or this afternoon. or this evening. So I'm running off about 2 hours of sleep. *shaking head* My eyes already burn and I'm not even half way through my shift! And the computers are down so I've gotta do everything by hand. *sigh*

*twiddling thumbs*

Cinnamon and orange spice tea

we're at aromas tonight. We've been here for a while - I've just finished watching Hackers. It wasn't bad. Just there's a scratch in the dvd right when it's getting all suspenseful and stuff.
There are loads of macs here tonight. It's odd. More macs than anything else.
I'm bored.
I need to start studying. Just it's too early. I hate studying before midnight.
I registered for classes for next semester. I'll be taking history 2, government 2, some joke chemistry class, philosophy, and... *thinking* microbiology. Oh and weight training for women too! lol. Maybe I'll lose some weight or something.
I was all stoked 'cause that means I'll only be lacking 4 classes to have all the prereq's for the BSN prog at tech. And I can take those 4 easy in the summer, and then be all set to start in the fall. Only thing is the prog starts every summer. So I'm sooo not making it. In which case I'll have an extra year to just chill and take jack off classes to just keep busy and stay in school. I'm thinking maybe I'll take another math class... maybe a real chemistry class and bio or maybe a couple of math classes.
David's stoked. It's looking like he may be graduating in the spring, or the early summer. I'm so happy for him.
We were talking earlier to a friend of his about what we'll be doing after David graduates and stuff. With this setback in my plans I've got another 3 to 4 years here. I know David wants to take some time off before grad school... but I'm not sure if he wants to take 3 years off. I was hoping to move back to Houston after I'm done... maybe get a house in a suburb or something. I dunno. *shaking head* For a long time that had been my goal - everything I was doing was directly because I want to get back there. But now... I dunno. Suddenly the glamour of the big city just isn't what I'm looking for. I guess what I'm trying to say is that's not where I'd like my children to grow up. Now that's a hell of a leap, eh?
So anyway... dunno what we'll be doing. Isn't it grand?

sisters spat

so I've been fighting with my sister about what she tells her boytoy.
She's ridiculous sometimes.... I mean, she asks me if she can tell people that I decorated David's bathroom with ducks... and she ~doesn't~ ask me if she can tell her boytoy things that I've told her as a "sister."
See... her boytoy... he used to live downstairs from one of David's best friends. And he told me that David was always chasing her and she didn't appreciate it 'cause she was always chasing him (boytoy). Now I don't know what David was doing before he and I started dating. It's none of my business, either. But I do ~not~ believe that she (the friend) was chasing the boytoy. She's just not that type of person. So anyway... I told my sis that I figured the boytoy was chasing the friend, and she told the boytoy! And then last night the boytoy was really trashing the friend - saying she was always coming home wasted and he always had to help her up the stairs and stuff. So I told him to stop and then I got up and left. Then he left. So I sat back down and then my sis came back and I told her the boytoy was trashing the friend. By this time my lunchbreak was over so I had to go back to my floor. Then the boytoy calls me to apologize, that he didn't mean to trash her just that he was telling the truth. Now that got me ~mad~.
I really don't think much of him. Never have. Before he found out my sis and I were sisters, he sure was talking some talk to me... at the same time he was talking to my sis. There's nothing I can respect in a man like that.
Now I don't think much of her either. She asked me tonight if I was still mad. I said no. It's my fault. I should know better than to trust her with anything.
I guess as an isolated incident this isn't so bad. Just things like this have been happening since I moved up here.
*crazy peeved*

so I have a plan...

tomorrow night when I come to work I will talk about the 2 worst movies I have ever seen in my entire life -
the absolute worst being Reign in Darkness, with Razorblade Smile coming in a close second.

not quite a mind fuck

I read somewhere that Donnie Darko is a total mind fuck.

I saw Kill Bill this past morning. I wouldn't say it's a mind fuck. More like a mind blow job. And you don't cum.

So yeah. It was interesting. There may have been more blood in Kill Bill than in Freddy Vs Jason.

I took my friend Chris out for his 21st bday. We spent about 8 hours on some pool, a couple of beers, a movie, and then lunch. The pool was pretty bad. I'm a pretty bad player. I did make this one shot that I actually ~planned~ and it was awesome! But I couldn't do it again, ya know? Then I bought him a Corona, and he got a birthday shot for free. He had it "straight," instead of "dressed." New lingo to me. *blushing* We ended up spending about 3 hours shooting pool and then about 20 mins on the beer. Then we went to the theatre to see Kill Bill. And it was... an experience. And I took him to Tokyo! That's like, one of my favorite restaurants! It's a little Japanese place where they do the whole cook-in-front-of-you. And our cook this time wasn't mad at the world (when David and I went our cook was extraordinarily anti-social). By then it was about 1500 so I took him home so he could get some sleep and so I could sleep too. I had to get up at 1800 to go watch Revolutions with David.
Revolutions wasn't too shabby. Much better than the second installment. Not as good as the first, but that's to be expected. I was pretty happy with it. I'd read some bad reviews and I could see where they were coming from, but I did get to spend 2 hours snuggling with my guy so I was a little easier on it.
He's the greatest.
We were supposed to go buy groceries... sometime this past week. Never got to it. So I came to work with a package of Oreos for lunch. *shaking head*

Oh oh!!! David's gonna let me decorate his apt for Christmas. *stoked*
I've never had the chance to decorate an entire room from scratch! heh... hope I can handle it. Hope he can handle it. *wink*

In Memory of...

I used to go to church every Sunday. Even when I lived in Houston and there was no one around to wake me up I went to church. This one Sunday I happened to make the last mass - at about 10:30 pm. Apparently I was fixing to go out. and I remember exactly what I was wearing:
an aqua-blue mini skirt
a black halter top
my hair curly w/ loads of glitter in it
body glitter on my arms, chest, back, and legs
black stripper shoes

I haven't been going to church lately. I'm going to a memorial service this morning for a lady who used to work here. I'm actually thinking about going home to find something (aside from scrubs) to wear.

I wonder, do they actually expect me to ever get here on time?

when harry met sally
Everyone remembers the 'faked-orgasm-in-a-deli'
sequence from your kind of movie When Harry Met
Sally. It seems that you're falling for a buddy
or have already fallen for them. Uh-oh. You're
probably caught between the possibility of
having a great relationship and wrecking the
one you have now. You know what they say, it's
better to regret something you did than
something you didn't do.


never even heard of it

Good stuff, you are "Wedding? I love
weddings! Drinks all around." You're the
life of the party and nothing gets you down,
not even certain death at the hands of your
zombie nemesis or the Navy. Come to think of
it, realism isn't your strong suit...

Which one of Captain Jack Sparrow's bizarre sayings from Pirates of the Caribbean are you?
brought to you by Quizilla


w00t w00t!

You are Form 1, Goddess: The Creator.

"And The Goddess planted the acorn of life.
She cried a single tear and shed a single drop
of blood upon the earth where she buried it.
From her blood and tear, the acorn grew into
the world."

Some examples of the Goddess Form are Gaia (Greek),
Jehova (Christian), and Brahma (Indian).
The Goddess is associated with the concept of
creation, the number 1, and the element of
Her sign is the dawn sun.

As a member of Form 1, you are a charismatic
individual and people are drawn to you.
Although sometimes you may seem emotionally
distant, you are deeply in tune with other
people's feelings and have tremendous empathy.
Sometimes you have a tendency to neglect your
own self. Goddesses are the best friends to
have because they're always willing to help.

Life's not fair! It's never been fair, but while
adults might just accept that, I know

get some power of my own.

I wanna make empanadas

so I called my mom to try and get her recipe, but she didn't answer. When she called back I was asleep so I didn't answer. Not a good start, ya know?

David invited me to spend thanksgiving with him and his family. I dunno if I want to, though. I mean... it seems cool and all, but I dunno how I'd feel about that. I guess it's somthing I'm gonna have to warm up to at some point in time, but it's not something that I'm really looking forward to. What if she hates me? I mean... David and I have a very... how'd sandy put it? "interesting dynamic."
In other words, we rag on each other a lot. Like I'm always telling him next year's model will be crazy awesome... or that next year's model will drive a truck... or that next years model will not be such a prude... And he's always talking about Amy and Melissa, his make-believe heinas (I hope!). And we're always busting out with "I hate you."
You'd think that his friends wouldn't wanna chill with us, since we're a couple and all. That they'd feel like the third-wheel. But as far as I can tell none of his friends have felt that way. And as for my friends... well... I have none.
Hence all the time I spend online.
Sometimes it makes me not wanna get married. Or it makes me wanna elope. My last best friend... Well I haven't talked to him in months. And even then, he's a guy. Won't exactly make for the best Maid of Honor.
And I wanna have a baby. Who will be his or her padrinos? I know this sound really ridiculous, but seriously I worry about it. And David's not even Catholic. Now there are a lot of misconceptions about the Catholic church, but I was raised Catholic and I will die Catholic. And my children will be Catholic. Not because I feel it's the only way, but just because it's what I know. When they're old enoough to really understand the whole concept of faith, then they can choose what religion they are. And how will I know when they are ready? *shaking head* I'm not sure. But I do take the sacraments very seriously, and I will not force my children to be confirmed unless it is what they want.
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's someone who doesn't know what they "believe" in.

So like.. let me die and stuff...

My sis and I have been arguing about me being a DNR. I dunno... I just do not want to be intubated. If I'm having trouble breathing and all... and if I can't do it on my own... if the CPR doesn't cut it... just let me die.
So then I guess I'm not a DNR (do not resuscitate); I'm a DNI (do not intubate).
We're all gonna die anyway... and not like I'm doing anything that great with my life anyhow...
