Happy Halloween, all!

I still haven't decided who I'm going to be for a costume party tomorrow. I was thinking about being the dancing Nirodh (warning- video contains useful educational themes that some people are offended by for whatever reason, and a very catchy tune), but I couldn't find a foam board big enough, and that would just be too much painting involved for a costume probably only one person at the party would get. :< And I would also have to carry around some kind of music player.


Reason number 49837483 I love my job- Epic fax machine tag. When business was at a standstill due to weather, the guys at the indoor-mall location sent us a little drawing message through the fax machine making fun of our predicament. Eventually, the picture-arguments fizzled out and we started playing the add-a-line game where we draw one piece of a picture and send it back to them, etc, etc. Before my shift ended, they asked if I was a /b/tard, as I admonished them to "learn 2 spelling". I sent them this face before I left.

I knew it was possible to be reduced to tears by a test, but I never have been... until today. My physics exam wasn't impossible. But you know that feeling you get when you take the test and figure that you studied 1) the wrong stuff, or 2) the wrong way?

I (unknowingly) chose option 2), which is the better of the two, but not by much. Failing is not outside the realm of possibility at this point, but at least I'll get credit for my work. The question is where I fall on the curve. I'm not exactly a happy camper at this point.

Adding to that, the roads are wet and slick, so I went into a bit of a skid on the drive home. a couple more seconds and I would have hit a telephone pole, which really rattles me now that I think about it.

At least it's Halloween, though, so I get to give out candy tonight. It's so fun to see all the neighborhood kids in their costumes. Although, given that it's riany, we might not get too many this year...

Oh well. More Crunch bars for me! smile.gif

Bad Halloween this year. Very bad.

First, in lucnh. I stand up and go put my tray away. As soon as I turn around, everyone is standing and yelling "Fight! Fight! Fight! Fight!". All I know is there was some food thrown, some punching, and then Derek threw up. All through the rest of the day all I heard was: "Derek threw up." "Rueban punched him in the stomach!" "No it was Chakai!" "What about Derek?" "There was a food fight!"
And so on. But that's nothing compared to what happened a few hour ago.

Our group had about 15 people. So Denise invited her boyfriend. She and Sharon go meet up with him. Sharon walks ahead and crosses the street. Denise and Ryan start across. A crazy mother-f*cker runs through a stop sign at full speed, and Denise jumps out of the way. Ryan wasn't so lucky. The guy hit him so hard, his head cracked the windshield. Blood everywhere D: Poor Denise. Then the jerk says "It was dark, I couldn't see" and such. I don't think you run a stop sign and hit a guy. He was wearing all white, the guy had his headlights on, the streetlights could light up a city. not to mention there were enough porch lights and such. I really hope Ryan's okay. The police say the old man was probably drunk.

Happy Hallo-friggin'-ween.

Anyway, other than that, it was okay.

I feel the need to go look through Pawstar.com.

I'm sorry about your friend's boyfriend, Washu! :[ I hope he recovers soon.

So this Hurricane Ike got us all scared, we actually went to somewhere around austin to a ranch =3 it was really cool, we spend like 1 week there and when we came back...we spend like 1 week without electricity >>...and like 2 with no cable..and no internet damn comcast anyway...my apartment did not suffer any damage compare to the ones in the first floor I live upstairs...they had like 2-3 feet of water and they lost everything...poor people, anyway I hope they get some of the stuff they lost from fema.

In other news...

On the night of September 29 at around 3:30am I started to get contractions =O they were not painful but I started counting them to see how closed they were, they were irregular and then I felt at asleep. It was 9am when my husband drove me to my parents house and at 2 pm I called him at work so we could go to the hospital to get checked...as soon as I step in the hospital they transfer me to a room, I had dilated(sp?) to 3 and was closed to 4, after 1 hour they check me again and I was 4 and was close to 5, so they placed me in another room (one all to my self since I was sharing the other one with 2 more people) they took like 2 more hours to check me again, by then my contractions were REALLY painful, I didn't had that injection on my spinal cord so I suffer all the pain with no medicine XD (<--yeah...I laugh now but it was not funny then) so they check me and I was 9 and a half O_O so they told me than when I couldn't take the pain anymore to call them so I could star pushing >.< (yeah, I had that face...sort of)...so after one hours of pushing Camila came out at 12:15am it was September 30th...and then the placenta XD which she (the midwife) show it to me and told me everything about it...so anyway I was happy, my mother was happy, my husband was happy (each was holding one leg so I could push). The midwife and the nurse were sooo proud of me, they cheer me up all the way 'till the end. I'm so happy right now, but there is one thing that bothers me...she looks nothing like me, is like I didn't do anything >.< she looks EXACTLY like her god damn father >_> oh well, maybe next time....or not coz it was sooo painful

You know I have a habit of coming around for a week or two & then appearing again for months on end before making another appearance. So all of this was new to me. Life sure has a way of sneaking up on you.

- My husband and I have a new-found love for Family Guy. laugh.gif
- Ick. School again tomorrow.

So I've finally acquired news on my friend's sister's boyfriend. He has a minor concussion, a bruised liver, he's missing 5 teeth and his nose is messed up a bit. No news on the guy that hit him. But apparently a few people were saying that he was drunk. I wouldn't doubt it.

Lol I know it's naive, but I always pictured Zarp as like this pure innocent angel. tongue.gif So this was big news to me.

Nope. I'm sure a lot of people don't remember or could really give a damn who I am. Me & you didn't really have any deep convo's or anything, but we had no problems with one another. Do you remember a Mahou Alchemist(even though I've long since passed that name off)? Lol, I wish I knew. I just found it scrolling through some curious board, & thought "Woooooooooooooooow, she's hot" & saved it.

- I couldn't fall back asleep, so here I am, on the Internets.
- My own classes start at 10 AM. Stupid, useless lecture.

Well I'll try to find out who it is for you. Ha, can't believe it, and here I thought I was forgotten. Perhaps I should go back to the old name.

No school tomorrow biggrin.gif .....but I still got to work sad.gif
First paycheck!!!! $130 is all mine
Algebra 2 is garbage, dont feel like doing the work

@Blitz- I'm so sorry to hear about that D:!

Rawr. It's been a while.

Halloween at work was amusing: The IT assistant (my mentor and friend) was trapped in the stairwell with another employee whom she didn't know because he was in full-costume dressed as a bloodied-up 'Scream' character. Despite being WAY in the office, which is ten feet from the closed-off stairwell, I could hear her scream, "SH!T!!!!!" at the top of her lungs, heard the door slam open and shut, and before I knew it she was in the office ready to collapse.

Dad and I never laughed so hard. Why? Everything was caught on tape.

Anyway...anyone here ever hear of a novel or play or movie called 'the Bad Seed'? Pretty interesting, albeit disturbing. That's where I was Halloween night. Working a production of that play and man...I had goosebumps afterwards. Boy, was that little girl creepy...

I voted early. The lines were silly. I has sticker. I work tonight. Yay!

Am about 5000 words behind on NaNo. No worries.


I really need to get myself a copy of Watchmen. And have decided that The Sandman Ultimate collection is absolutely what I want for Christmas. *_* Re-colored! (Ttly h8ed the original colors in the early volumes, but occasions of crappy looking art were surpassed entirely by story.)

And yet it is impossible to find volume one for even retail price. :<



Been reading "Lolita". It's an amazingly dangerous book, and I adore it. Been also reading about various authors' viewpoints on the writing process, most specifically Nabokov's and Gaiman's. Their processes are so different. (but then, their fiction is so different.)

I can send you a copy until you can buy a hard copy if ya want.*

Current Stream of Thought:

Yes! I just went and voted for the first time! Unfortunately, however, my county is switching to vote-by-mail next year, so no more polls for me. I messed up only one ballot, which made me feel pretty stupid because nobody else did that while I was there, but I'm quite proud of myself, exercising my rights like that. (I actually had a lot of trouble getting registered, though that's another story for another time.)

All of a sudden...I'm reminded of 2004 elections.

I just get the feeling I'm going to be up late again tonight...*sighs* Dammit, why can't Ronald Reagan come back? DX

Holy crap. I'll be so pissed if North Carolina doesn't turn blue. We've already voted Kay Hagan into the Senate, and it looks like Bev Perdue's won the gubernatorial race, but if we don't vote Obama.... mellow.gif

What an awesome night. I get home after a long day at school devoid of election news, and my brother greets me with "It's over!" And I was fully ready to stay up late for the results, too. What a relief.

Oh, and my Ouran DVDs arrived~

P.S. - THANK YOU, fellow Americans, for not failing us again.
Popogeejo
I liked McCain's speech. Reminded me of why I liked him. Really, if he'd stuck to his guns instead of chasing the republican conservative base and picked a less scary VP this would have been far closer.

Remember America, once you go black you don't go back.

The BBC was great fun.
John Boltn was arguing with reporters, they had a temperamental touch screen, the main Anchor, David Dimblbey(sp?), said FOX wasn't a good enough news source and some old republican was apparently drunk and called bitched and Dimblbey about "the facts of life" and how we, Europe, don't understand the Republican party.

Well worth staying up until 5am for.

Well, I can't really say anything that hasn't been said, other than that I'm not sure what I think of McCain's speech when he was conceding. It was... interesting.

But I'm as happy as any of you. In the immortal words of one of my school's social studies teachers (as well as many others): Life is good!

And thanks, Quistis88. (You congratulate me on anything, and you will be thanked. Especially tonight.)

OBAMA!

McCain's speech was great, though, I have to admit, and he was a rather gracious loser.

So. Obama won.

Though, I didn't think McCain was fit for the seat, either.

Nuts to ranting about not being able to escape the U.S election results on my television. Good for Obama, now am I allowed to know whats happened in the U.K BBC? Oh right, Jeremy Clarkson.

Oh wait, there was something about November 5th and politics I'm meant to remember....I have the sudden urge to set light to a Guy and set off a firework...

I am SO pissed off at 52.5% of voting Californians right now. How is it okay to take away people's rights just because you don't approve of who they love? There is no way that the homosexual marriage issue (which shouldn't even be an issue at all) will end this way.

I'm still happy about the general optimism that I see everywhere due to Obama's win, but damn it, 52.5% of California, you ruined my day.

That good enough for you?
Though, it was mostly black people that voted for the passing of Prop 8 in California while only some were whites. Same thing for the people of Florida!
Surprising? Very...
But, hey...I hear 3 lawsuits are starting against the passing of Prop 8 in California! This oughtta be interesting...

Michael Krichton passed away today *sighs* Such a great author...America looses yet another brilliant writer. Especially his books; my favorite out of them all has to be Timeline, though the movie didn't do it justice.
