Heigh-ho, it’s off to work I go

Published by under Friends,The Fam,Work

Hello, I’m back at work, which means that these journal entries will be updated much more frequently, once I get out of training.

What’s it like to be back at work? Boring. I’m working at my old job, the one where I used to be a trainer. Now I’m sitting in the training class that I used to instruct. Can we say redundant? I’m basically reciting along with the current trainer.

I put up the Christmas tree two nights ago, so now we are festive and good. I still have to put up the tiny amount of outdoor lights that I like to use, but since it is now dark when I get home from work I have to wait for the weekend to do that.

Vicki has apparently begun shunning me because she hasn’t called or stopped over lately Hey, Vic what’s up with that? And Maria turned 23 a couple of days ago, so Happy Birthday to her, and I promise I’ll call when I get my long distance turned back on.

I need to scan some new pics for this site as well, which will happen when we get some new RAM in our second computer. The second computer is tore up right now — we had to go all Frankenstein on it to get DAoC to work on the second computer.

Tonight I will be journeying to my Grandma’s house to put lights on her Christmas tree. Why don’t some of you write and tell me your holiday plans?

Death by candy

Published by under The Fam

I started putting the date in my little topics because when you people respond to my journals the entries get all mixed up! But I’d rather that you talked. Compromise, ya know.

Well, Halloween has come and gone but unfortunately we have candy left over. . . lots of candy left over. So, for the past week I have been sucking down Sprees and Super Bubble bubble gum like it’s going out of style. Yum yum. My teeth hurt.

I have been doing absolutely NOTHING lately except pet sitting for my sister and trying to keep her pets alive. The dog and cat are easy to care for but the ferret is kind of sick. . . she has seizures if her blood sugar gets low or something. . . anyway she has had a seizure every day so far and I’m getting to be a nervous wreck because I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or if she’s just having seizures. So, hopefully she makes it until Friday with me caring for her. . . because otherwise I would feel REALLY bad.

Going to see a movie tonight with The Man but I don’t know which movie we’re going to see. He wants to see “Monsters, Inc.”, which I want to see as well, but I REALLY want to see “K-Pax” because Kevin Spacey is such a good actor and that movie looks sweet. Also want to check out “Riding in Cars With Boys” but I might wait and rent that on video.

I found a new song I like. . . it’s really hard for me to get in to a lot of popular music because it’s SO much rap lately. .. not that I don’t like rap in MODERATION but not all the time. .. ANYways I like Pink’s new song “Get the Party Started” because she sounds really cool when she sings. Also, Enya’s new song is cool too. (Um, I sound like I’m 13).

I think it’s time to go and work off my sugar high. Laters.

Happy All Saints’ Eve

Published by under Friends,Gaming

Happy All Saints to all my ghoulish guys and gals out there in cyberspace! How is everyone doing? How are you celebrating the holiday? The Man and I are just going to stay inside and hand out candy to all the young uns that wander by. . . Trick or Treat only lasts 2 hours here so hopefully we will not be overly mobbed but we probably will be.

DAoC is going very well for all you gamers out there who care about that kind of stuff. Just made level 14 today and feeling GOOD. Soon we’ll be in to the RvR stuff and apparently that’s where the real fun starts.

For all of you who don’t care about gaming, I’m sorry. That’s all I’ve been doing lately. Vicki moved in to a new apartment and I helped her unpack over there a little bit and taught her how to use her dishwasher. I am Vicki’s technological guru. I had to hook up her cable TV and her computer, and instruct her on how to buy a proper cordless phone. She loves me.
