"work" was a person, and he kidnapped you

I had weird dreams last night... dreamt about BoB for the first time in ages.
mostly just about what happened last time I saw him, and how things might have been different if I'd been more receptive.
I think it's weird I'm dreaming about him. I haven't talked to him since around my birthday... not even when my neice was in that accident.
last time we talked we both said some things that we probably shouldn't have, but it's that way so often between us.
I just can't get these dreams out of my head.
best I can do is either make a parallel between what happened with him and things that are going on between me & budd... or... maybe it's just because it happened around this time of year.

and now, because all I do is play WoW, an update:
nicc (my hunter) hit 57 yesterday and is 60 now. only took 3 hours from 59 to 60, which is surprising since it seemed to last days for my rogue.
with all this new outland gear her chance to crit and mana have gone down a bit, but both her attack power and hp are through the roof.
I had to pool money from my other characters for her mount, so I may as well tell you how much. my mage gave her 200g, sock 100g, and the fish 130g. I hope to get them paid back before too long... well, my mage and my rogue. sock's now even with budd when it comes to gold, and we're supposed to be making some effort for our epic flying mounts.
anyhow... lunchtime :)

spoiler alert

we went to the fair yesterday, and had mostly a great time. no rides and no photos, but I did eat a lot and budd got me some wooden roses (they'll never wilt!). we're both sunburned, but aside from that the weather was nice.
we played halo3 for a while afterwards, while eating our different kinds of fudge.
right this moment I'm going through coloring book land... fun times.

and, since budd ruined harry potter book 6 for me, I'm seriously considering whispering the ending to halo 3 to him while he sleeps.
clearly he deserves it.

state of the union

sarah was in town yesterday, so she and I (along with our SOs) went to see the new resident evil.
after the movie we came back here for tea~
I had a really good time, aside from budd being an ass all night.
he didn't like the movie, and also isn't much for just sitting around talking so while sarah & zach were here he spent the time fucking around with a remote control and looking for an excuse to open up his laptop.
I'll never understand how one moment we can seem so perfect for each other, and the very next moment I can't even see why I ever agreed to meet him.
it's been happening a lot more lately, and from what he said last night (in front of sarah and zach - I almost died) he's quite bitter about me quitting my job. that all I do is pick fights with him after he spends all day being frustrated at work.
I'm sorely reminded of how awful my relationship with my david got when I was unemployed.
so yes, we've been fighting a lot. seems the only time we're happy is when we're having dinner while watching st:tng. not before, since we can never agree on what to eat... and not after, since I always want to watch more episodes than he does.
I guess me being unemployed is frustrating for both of us... and I'm quite interested in seeing if it will break us up.

anyhow... the movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. it didn't really end, which kind of annoyed both sarah & me.
she said something about having matching dishes like some that I already have, and that she'd give them to me. I'm pretty stoked about that, since all my dishes are adopted so nothing really matches.

and have I mentioned I hate living here?
I can't have a drink on my desk for more than an hour before an army of ants takes it over.
like, I either have to chug my sodas or just resolve to never getting to drink more than half.
fucking annoying, I'll say.

send a fax or send me a letter

the job hunt does not go well. after not hearing anything from the library I just applied to a zillion jobs... and I didn't hear anything back from them, either.
I can't decide if I'm starting to get concerned about when I'll get another job.... I guess thinking about it means I am.

since I'm still funemployed I've been playing a lot of WoW (who'd have guessed, I know)... my rogue hit 70 a few days ago, my priest got some awesome gear in kara this past saturday - we did the whole thing at once and it was nice to actually see what goes on in there. nicc's still mid-50s, but I'm confident she'll be 58 soon and then it'll be almost no time 'till 70 (lol! yeah right, but at least I know where to quest 58+... sock & the fish both levelled from turning in pvp marks, mostly). my mage hit 42, and is full frost, and got her mount. briink hit 31, lol gnomer. ugh.
the fish did slabs last night with this guild, and another ced's carver dropped. I rolled greed, since I already had one that sock won in a greed roll.... and I won. so now I look like I was just browsing the ah @ 70 :( but oh well it's still better than the ring of blood dagger, so meh.

the leaks have stopped, and it's taking me a while to get the bowls & garbage cans washed.
we did buy an air freshner for downstairs (still smelled like tar) and opened up the windows up here (well, james did. my window doesn't open) so it doesn't smell like a fish bowl.
so I guess I should put some dishes in to wash... and make some lunch.
gg homemaker tinafish =/

happy anniversary burger king pie

can you believe it's been a year already?
seems like just yesterday and that it's been forever at the same time.
but we just had lunch and I'm groggy so maybe I'll nap for a bit - sleeping in a bed ftw!

at least I have my robe

the apartment manager just came by, with a maintenance man, a roofer, and another man I can't place.
apparently it's not just our apartment... it's everyone who had a roof replaced.
I wanna find out the name of the roofing company so I can badmouth them =/

my enthusiasm worried him

so I got some bertie bott's every flavor beans from the hastings on slide & 50th (30% off food & drink ftw)... I was soooo excited.
green apple was first.
then sardines - and gosh darn it I swear it felt like I had bits of sardine bones in my mouth. so spot on, ya?
cinnamon up next
and then I pulled out a pink one with spots of red. vomit or tuttie fruitti? no blue in it.. so I figured it was vomit.
since the sardines one was so real I grabbed a paper towel and a cup to spit out my half of a bean (tried each at half-a-bean then popped the other half into my mouth if it was ok).
after a few chews I spit out the half a bean and then started wiping my tongue & teeth with the paper towel.

it was horrid.
and I'm not the only one who thinks so.
would I recommend it? hell yeah
is it disgusting? indubitably

I think I wanna cry :(

what the fuck

we called back the answering service, since it'd been over 45 minutes since we first called and we still hadn't heard from maintenance.
apparently they do not respond to leaks after hours.

leaks are the only reason to have an emergency number, imo.
the entire bedroom is covered in various leaks, with the two most prominent coming from the fan and about a foot away from the fan. however the entire bed is wet and a good portion of the floor because of a load of smaller leaks.
if it's raining tonight, I'm not sure what we'll do.

jesus. fucking. christ

it rained again last night...
and now the ceiling is leaking.

straaaaaaaaaaanger in the mooooooonlight

it's just one thing after another here.
I think, when it comes down to it, and based on my experiences so far, I would not recommend this apt complex to anyone.

there was an amazing storm last night, and at one point we heard a loud "bzzzzt!" (well, BZZZZT would be more appropriate) from somewhere (budd votes for upstairs, I vote for... "north") in the apt.
this morning we realize our air conditioning is out [again].
upon further inspection it seems the pipe to the roof is broken again, and there was tar leaking in from up there.
so no big surprise about our horrible tar-smelling apt (it actually smelled more like tar inside than outside, and now we know why).

the maintenance guy is here now.
at first I felt bad for calling them out on the weekends, but after all the problems we've had I'm kind of annoyed we still have to call them at all.

as if I didn't already feel guilty

I ordered budd an iphone at the end of july, but ended up canceling the order since my last day at work was so much sooner than I'd planned.
with the new iphones announced today, apple slashed prices... we dutifully headed out to a local at&t store (jesus fucking christ I will never go to one of those again, at least not of my own accord) to grab a $300 newly discontinued iphone.
we were all rung up and budd was about to write a check... when he was told about an ABSURDLY high deposit.
I feel so bad, because if I'd not canceled my order he would have one already, and standing alone the deposit isn't ~too~ bad. it's bad, don't get me wrong... but manageable.
and he'd have his visual voicemail :(

ugh this place

our air conditioning went out yesterday.. and I have horrible nightmares if I'm hot when I'm sleeping.
last night was not fun, and though they came out and "fixed" it 'till tuesday, I'm seriously not looking forward to going to bed.
