-I finally got my chocolate.
-Apparently older siblings are no longer cool enough for their younger siblings birthdays. So instead I'm taking my chocolate and my midterm and I'm going watch him and his friends make fools of themselves from the sideline.(laugh.gif Doesn't sound to bad afterall!)
-Dr. Donahoe is the only person ever who can make philosophy really interesting and mind numbingly dull at the same time.sleep.gif

Haven't you noticed? Emo kids are just really whiney pricks who try to emulate japanese culture mixed with really crappy emo music, which is a fad. It will die within 10 years. Kind of like how leg warmers and big hair died. Except this look is worse.

The saddest part is, they pride themselves in being "different", and yet, they've become the newest fad. XD

@Lila - I shreiked like a retard(I do that when I get excited).

@Squishy - You are in trouble?

So my fav. song is "How to save a life", and I got that as my ringtone. Me, and my sister started singing it, then we heard the music...It was my mom calling me. It was so funny.

my thoughts
-*Squee*
-Flat Pepsi sucks.
ed_drink_your_milk
Sweety_pie- Are you "squee"-ing for any particular reason? smile.gif And, ironically, that's my brother's favorite thing to drink. XD

You know the shounen-ai/Yaoi art fandom needs to take a good long look at itself when I see a RoyEye fanart and assume by default that it's just another feminized Roy/Ed picture. :/

laugh.gif Poor Hawkeye. I need to hold a group meeting and knock some sense into these artists.
Thoughts:
-Why'd they give me this crappy name. I'm 25 fer chrissakes, and people still tell me it's my fault for the rainy days. "Damn it's raining hard, Rainy must be pms'ing". Tha f**k? Screw it, I'm banning everyone from calling me that.
-Where did this Winx Club shit come from? This has got to be worst cartoon for girls that I have ever seen. I don't even want to go into detail, but this might be on Bratz level of suckiness.

It was the first time that I drove to the mall, and my dad was paranoid. He offered to drive us there, but my mom refused. Well, she didn't refuse him herself, but every time he tags along our no-objective shopping trips, he always complains about things being too expensive, saying that he can find a similar product for less in Downtown LA. (This renders the gift card useless, which isn't the point at all.) I personally don't mind shopping with my dad, but my mom always exchanges these looks with my sister, and they get all irritated, while I just want to go home. So. I told my dad I can handle it, so he need not trouble with taking us to the mall.

And what did my sister say when she got in the car? "Wow...you really crushed Dad."

....When we got home, my dad was pacing across the driveway. mellow.gif

I only have myself on my W-4... sad.gif ...the whole thing is stupid. I think i should of marked down when i was filling it out that i have a crack baby or something. mellow.gif
@phoenix dying - It's ok to claim more than "actual" # of dependent(s) you have on W-4.
As you probably know, as is now, you'll probably get a rather large sum of tax refund at the end of tax year (after you file annual income tax report next January.)
The more dependents you claim on W-4, less tax will be taken out from each paycheck, and less tax refund you get at the end of year, or even ended up paying income tax you owe to the IRS instead of getting refund when you file annual income tax report next January.
Some people like getting a big refund at the end of year, it's kind of like putting money into the saving account from each paycheck and getting it all back at the end of year.
Others would rather use that extra money at each paycheck. In that case, increase # of dependents on W-4, and less tax is taken from each paycheck.
Although, if you do too much of this, like claiming dozen kids or something, you ended up owing huge amount of Income tax to IRS, and then IRS might impose penalty on the amount you owe to IRS, but claiming couple of extra dependents on W-4 shouldn't cause any problem, I think, and it gives you little extra spending money at each paycheck. (And, no it's not illegal. biggrin.gif )
(But, you probably lose big tax refund like some of your co-workers might get next January.)
Whichever you prefer, is up to your choice. biggrin.gif

I didn't think I would kick myself for not buying clothing, but that's what I'm doing now.

So the data entry thing at Cousin C's office worked out, which is good, but the thing is, it's at her office. Her boss preferred that the material be left at the office. This makes sense, though, since they're a law firm and I'll be indexing evidence documents and such. But that means I'll have to commute--hitching a ride with Cousin K (her brother) when he leaves for/comes home from work, since they're pretty close (the workplaces, that is--as well as our houses, actually). Cousin C thought it was better that I ride with Cousin K rather than her, since she has crazy hours. =\

Anyway. The biggest issue for me right now is that they have a dress code (no surprise there~)...and I left all my dress shirts and nice pants at school. All I have left are the khaki pants I got yesterday (a lifesaver!) and the dressy sweater I brought home with me (the kind with a dress-shirt collar, making it look layered, though it's really not). So tomorrow is covered, at least, but I'll need to get myself a button-down shirt or two for the rest of the week.

Yes, it's a week thing. So I probably won't be around much during the day. (Well...this message is geared more towards the IRC folk who probably won't notice my absence anyhow. =p)

So um, yeah. I'm looking forward to getting paid to do short-term office grunt-work. =)

But damn! Why didn't I say yes when my mom asked if I wanted to get dress shirts yesterday? I had to be all frugal and say I have enough shirts at school--at school!

Well, I'm feeling a lot better as far is this "cold" thing goes; on my way to recovery, I hope. (Or is the denial mechanism kicking in already? ohmy.gif =D )

@Mei Mei - Congratulations for getting the job!!
(Not that I had any doubt!! biggrin.gif )
About the clothing... anyone in your house might have anything you can wear to work??
And, in a pinch I guess you can make do with two or three shirts??
Wear A on Day one, and wear B on Day two while you wash A, then wear C on Day three and A is getting dry and ready for Day 4, and so on??
(And, hope nobody in the office remembers what you were wearing!! >.<)
But, since it's a short term, hopefully you can make do with the minimum investment!! biggrin.gif
And, glad your cold is getting better!!
Good luck with your work!! happy.gif

Train of thought:

+ Wargh! I bought the Fullmetal Alchemist manga profiles yesterday, and it only goes up to volume seven.
That means no Ling, Sloth, Ran Fan and Foo descriptions.
Not to mention Mei-Ling!

And the titles of each page were terribly cheese.
"Automail Whiz-Kid", "Not your average 15 year old!"
-Head explodes.
Plus, the screwed up Den's gender, referring to him as 'she' in one second, and 'he' in the other.

Betches, I'm Canadian. That was over 20 freakin' dollars.
But I did enjoy the extra manga, even if I did read the omakes on here.

Plus, according the the character quiz, I'm Edward.
That things screwed, though. My little brother read it and got Scar.

I thought I was going to be Roy...


+ Nu. I'm suspicious of my guy-friend beginning to take an interest in me, but he has a girlfriend.
Unfortunately, I sort of like him to.
I'm curious as to how the hell this will turn out.

+ Oh, yeah. And I bought another volume of Deathnote.
Question: Why is it rated older teen?
16 and over? Ratings don't make much of a difference to me, but I find it curious.
Usually, OT calls for extreme violence or nudity of some sort.
So far, Fullmetal Alchemist has called for more bloodshed then this series.
Don't get me wrong: Deathnote is great!
Does anyone know of mature topics in the later english translations that would cause this?
It's just, judging by the range of manga I've read, I'd so far categorize it a rating lower.



Erm. Why are n00bs adding me to their friends list? D= It BURNS!

Mei! Great going on your job. *high fives*

I got my adaptor in the mail today. The actual plug in doesn't work (the part that goes into the wall) but no matter, as that wasn't the part that was broken, and I can just hook up the second part from my old cord and it works all find and dandy. No more sharing custody of the same cord with my sister.

LOL!

Mom was weirded out by your implication in the end. She was asking "Well... is she a homosexual?" I gave her something about how that's just how friends joke around and it came around to the question "Well, do you think you might be attracted to women?"
