Being poor is dumb. :(
X-Files movie = :D
(though I think I'm perhaps too sympathetic, or maybe just too panfandom, to enjoy it as much as I could have)

French Dip subs = :)

buying random pretty shirts = :)

yarn = :)

Bowling = :)

sucking at bowling = :(

being poor = :(

Not checking my f-list for 3 days = :(
(aww fuck it, I'll do it in the morning)

Warped next Thursday = :D

P.S. I finally got my last.fm to work with mediamonkey. \o/ If you want to add me over there, that would be cool. Link! I'm kaciagemini pretty much everywhere, really.

Someday I will make a post that is an actual update about my life, because there are a bunch of things currently going on in it. That day is not today, and tomorrow's not looking so great either. *shrugs* Oh well.

Mostly this post is to tell you that I am cold. My Jack Skellington blankie is making inroads to keeping me warm, but I should probably still go put on some socks or something.

Side note: I haven't actually watched Nightmare Before Christmas since... not long after it came out. When I was a tiny, tiny thing. I was wondering the other day why I hadn't watched it again. Then I realized that I don't own it. Which is kinda crazy because I own a lot of fucking DVDs. I was thinking, how do I not own it? Then I looked online, and apparently Disney hasn't released it from the vault since, like, 2000? That's some crazy shit. I really need to get my hands on a copy at some point. This is ridiculous. Damn you, Disney.

In other news, I am flat fucking broke (contents of my wallet - $0.11), but I'm done with my holiday shopping. Now I just need to get on making the stuff I'm supposed to make. Which is... more things than I want to think about right now. Ack. Not enough time in the world.

I also need to get on wrapping stuff. Because I am the designated wrapping lackey for the contents of two households which adds up to a lot of presents really.

Argh. I'm gonna get back to my f-list now.

I spent too much money yesterday. But it was worth it.

Also? Ended up seeing Surf's Up. Which is a ridiculously cute movie. At one point my girlfriend thought I was going to injure myself giggling. Best Soundtrack Ever.

Also? I have a new bra from Victoria's Secret. And it is STRAPLESS. And it FITS. This is the most awesome thing in the entire history of my tits. Stupid D-cups.

Also? I bought an I-Pup at a yardsale yesterday and it makes me way too happy considering it is an entirely pointless piece of plastic. But it lights up when I play music! And barks happily! And it's pink! And it came with a tiny purse to carry it around in! I am such a five-year-old. ^.^

I ♥ sno-cones.
I cannot afford to buy Guitar Hero. Really. Right?

(Oh, and err, I'll explain why I've been absent for most of the last week. ...later. Bye!)
I think I may have misplaced a $20 bill which is seriously depressing. Stupid paper monies. I never misplace my bank account, yo.

I got about 3 hours of sleep last night after I finished my paper. Due to my alarm clock deciding to hate me again. I'm really gonna have to give up on that thing. I am just naturally resistant to change.

In happier news, you know what's a little bit awesome? When my coworkers leave for lunch and come back in after a couple of minutes carrying uprooted trees. Yes. And when I ask what the heck is going on, the only response is a too-innocent "They were just going to throw them away!"

Everyone in my office is a crazy person. Luckily I am on my own at the moment. They dropped off the trees in the back and continued on their way to lunch. No wait, there's a second batch of trees. Now I'm alone. So weird.

Also? Landscaping confuses me. A lot.

I do not need any more frog things. Ever. In the rest of my life. Really. And I'm poor. Very poor. And will soon be even more poor. And the fact that it's the only clay chibi currently left on her site and it's been sitting there for a few weeks is in no way a sign that it is meant to belong to me. Not at all. I do not need that frog!


ETA: ...apparently there is a character limit on the music field. And I just hit it. Silly FOB.
I just bought a 500GB External Hard Drive. This was probably not the smartest move I've ever made. But I *really* wanted it. Goodbye, tax return. *waves*

In other news, I am dying of sinuses. Please send assistance and supplies.

ETA: Hey Jen, this is that thing I mentioned the other day. Less than $10 including shipping.

I am blasting Xmas music. Because I want to.

Also, despite having... a dollar something in the bank... I bought new shoes today.
I will pay my credit card bill the second I get paid, I will pay my credit card bill the second I get paid, I will pay my credit card bill the second I get paid.

They're shiny, though! And they were only $35, which isn't that bad for New Balances. And I needed new sneakers, desperately. Wearing my 5-year-old tennies was making my feet hurt! And why am I rationalizing this to you guys? You don't care! I think I'll shut up now.

Also-also, my girlfriend bought me yarn today. Because she loves me. And because there was a yarn sale at HobLob. And because it was apparently fated that we should go to Hancock Fabrics. ^.^ *luffs*

Yesterday I bought The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on dvd, the Law and Order boardgame and Sorry, the Sims 2 Nightlife expansion pack, an x-mas-y cross stitch kit, and I ordered my MP3 player on ebay. I will be really, really, *really* happy if it gets here early next week. Oh, and I also bought other things that I mostly needed.
And today I took my girlfriend out to eat at Yuki's. Yay for good Japanese food!
And I ordered some anime online today as a favor for my sis who wants to give it to her husband for his birthday.
I missed money. *cuddles checkcard*

And I am apparently embroiled in a bitter dispute with the Columbia House movie club about a director's selection that I apparently forgot to decline during some period of time when I was broke. o.O; Whatever. Will worry about it some other time.

Thusfar today I have played sims 2 for about five hours. How about I try to fit in a couple more before bed?

My friends are wonderful. And incredibly good at making comment pages cascade - it's almost otherwordly.
I love you guys.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I watched the second Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire trailer today and it wins at life. I'll post a link later tonight once I get back to my compy and hunt it down.

And I'm way excited about the check I will be getting today. Call me shallow, but I miss money. *cuddles the monies*

When did I turn into such a traditional college student?

As soon as I get my residual check on Friday, the first thing I'm going to buy from teh wonderful internets is this.
Because obviously a 1 gig MP3 player is necessary to my continued existence.
Nevermind the fact that my favorites playlist is actually only about 250 megabytes. You can never have too much space.
Fortunately I am not crazy enough to spend a bajillion dollars on an even bigger one. One gig should be far more than I need. Because I do not need to carry around my entire music library because I don't listen to it. This is me convincing myself not to buy a 20 or 40 gig MP3 player. It seems to be working. Good.

I should be trying to talk myself out of spending $80 bucks on an MP3 player. But instead I think I shall just savor the excitement. :)

I have six dollars and 12 cents in the bank. But you know what? Life is good.
The Gravi OVA is currently winging its way towards my house.
My scholarships came in so I should get a residual check on Friday.
And if I don't start getting paid this Friday, I definitely will two weeks from Friday.
I am pleased with life.
I just have to survive 4 more days.

Also, Rita is teh ev0l.
That is all.

Yesterday was the longest day on the planet. Really.

Here's how yesterday was supposed to go:
-get up at 6 AM
-be moved into the dorm before 8 AM, when everyone in the universe would begin showing up
-work till 4
-buy Home Depot gift card for Beth and Doug as wedding present
-go to wedding

Here's how it actually happened:
-Well, first off, I had to move back my start date because I didn't get all my stuff in the car and get showered until almost 2:30 AM, and I didn't want to run a full day with lots of driving on three and a half hours of sleep. Just seemed like a bad idea. So I moved the start time back to 7:30, because I figured 5 hours of sleep would be enough to get by and it still would not be that crowded at about 9 AM.
-So I woke up at 7:30 AM, surprisingly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Then I attempted to wake up Bruce. Then I woke him up again. Eventually he got up and took his sweet time getting ready so I didn't actually get out of the house until almost 8:30. He was driving the Jimmy with all my stuff in it and I was driving the Thunderbird so I would have something to come home in after he finished helping me move in and went home.
-We went through Lewisburg to get gas and he decided he needed to check the oil in the Thunderbird because it sounded funny. He spent 10 minutes trying futilely to figure out how to open the hood. He *finally* gave up and asked mom's mechanic who was like 5 feet away watching the entire struggle with amusement. Gomer opened the hood in about 3 seconds. We checked the oil and it did need some, so we fed it a quart. It did run better after that, which was almost enough to make up for the delays he was putting in my plan.
-We finally got on the road towards russellville and ultimately BG. It was almost 9 by this time.
-5 minutes outside of Lewisburg, my cell phone rings. After half-risking my life trying to get my phone out of my purse in the backseat while driving, I answered it. It was mom. Telling me to come *back* to Lewisburg because she needed me to do something for her. *sigh* Turned around and went back to Lewisburg.
-Went by the post office where mom gave me the title for the Kia so that I could take it to a bank in BG and get proof of the lean on it being released (she paid it off with a personal loan on Monday so that the insurance company wouldn't get to keep it - due to some crazy KY-specific laws that don't really make any sense).
-Finally got back on the road towards BG. Going *way* too slowly because Bruce kept falling behind. I seriously had to go like 45-50 the entire fucking way to BG. I think it caused me physical pain to drive under the speed limit.
-When I go to BG, I stopped at the bank where I was supposed to be able to get the lean-realease thingie. After much frustration and waiting almost half an hour, some chick finally told me that she couldn't give it to me because Mom's check hadn't cleared yet (even though they told her Monday it wouldn't take more than 2 days) because it "wasn't exactly local", by which I think the chick actually meant "because it's not a check from *our* bank so we don't feel like doing things in a timely manner". With a side order of "oh, by the way, we don't need the title, we need the receipt from where she paid it off". Lovely.
-Moved on and went to the dorm. The crazy, full-of-people, ripped-apart-by-construction dorm. Because for some reason, they decided that move-in day was a great time to close down the circle around Minton and start ripping up the ground to such an extent that we couldn't even walk around the building the short way. So we had to throw everything out on the ground a ways back behind the dorm, then Bruce had to find somewhere to park the Jimmy while we moved stuff and I had to go find somewhere to leave the Thunderbird all day without getting, like, towed or something. I ended up parking in the new structure, which I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to do, but I didn't particularly care at that point.
-So then I had to hike back around all the crazy construction to get back to my stuff so that I could then carry all my shit a bajillion miles around the back of Minton to get it into the dorm room.
-Tell me why they thought it would be a good idea to rip up all possible paths between Minton and DUC. I mean, seriously, you can't walk the few hundred feet between the two buildings without going halfway around the universe.
-So, by the time I got all my stuff moved in (except for my computer that's still at home with me, and my fridge and stuff that is still at Danny's), sent Bruce home, and headed to work, it was like 11:30.
-Work was kinda rough because there was an OAR and the other two chicks working were there well before me so they got to do the sitting down jobs and I had to run around all afternoon.
-I did go pick up my books from the bookstore when I had a few minutes to spare. I was going to take them back to my dorm room, but I didn't get around to that. I also didn't get a chance to return my Public Health 100 book (because I am probably going to drop that class) and see if my Anthro of Gender book(s) were available yet and pick up a couple of books for Michael.
-Why didn't I get to do those things? Because mom called to yell at me (on danny's phone because mine doesn't get enough service to even *ring* which I got yelled at about, don't ask me how I'm to blame because I have no clue) and tell me that I had to leave right that very second. She needed the license plate for the Kia, which was, for some inexplicalbe reason, sitting in the floorboard of the Thunderbird. She needed it so she could drive the Kia home from the frame shop it was at in Hoptown. She needed to pick up the Kia by 5:30. So I hurried to the Thunderbird, and started driving towards Russelville where she was going to meet me and get the license plate.
-I sped like mad and practiced what I would tell the cop if I got pulled over.
-Made it to Russellville, handed over the license plate, told mom to let me pick up Zoe so that she wouldn't end up getting dragged off to Hoptown with Mom and certainly miss the wedding. It was already time to pick Zoe up by this point and I was still in Russellville. And I couldn't leave yet, because I still had to find a gift certificate for Beth and Doug. I tried 84 Lumber who told me that they don't do gift card thingies which is stupid, might I add. Everyone should do gift cards.
-Said fuck it, gave up and got a Wal-Mart gift card.
-It was like 4:40 by this time and Zoe was supposeed to be picked up at 4:30. Normally, it is a 15-20 minute drive from Russellville to Elkton. When I turned onto the road that goes from Russelville towards Elkton it was 4:45. When I hit the stop light in Elkton it was 4:55. I did some *serious* speeding. Part of that was because I was running so late and part of that was because I happened to be following a truck who was going 75-80 the whole way. Generally speaking, I'm a lot more comfortable speeding if I'm following someone else who is speeding because then that person is more likely to be the one to get the ticket if a cop spots us.
-The craziest part? I *did* see a cop. While I was going upwards of 75 in a 55 zone. He *passed* me. Seriously, flew by me and the truck in front of me like we were standing still. I guess he had more important places to be or something. Hell, I'm not complaining. But I seriously think I had a heart attack when I saw the cop. I had vivid mental images of being hauled off to jail.
-Picked Zoe up, ranted about my day the entire way home.
-Stopped at home so Zoe could change clothes for the wedding, then turned around and got *back* in the car to go up the road for the wedding.
-The wedding was fun and there was good food afterwards. Even though it attacked me. Seriously. I was trying to use the barbecue tongs and I managed to slice my finger open. Don't worry, I didn't bleed on the food.
-Hung around for a while, then went home. Helen came by later and we watched Into the Woods (which is an awesome musical).
-And then I called my girlfriend. It occurred to me about two and a half hours into the conversation that I probably should have had her call me back so that we wouldn't run up Mom's long distance bill. Oops. I hope we have a great long distance plan. I don't think my mom will really complain.
-Then I fell asleep. Like, pretty much as soon as my head hit the pillow. I nearly fell asleep while I was on the phone.

And while today is much less stressful than yesterday, my health (which has been heading south for several days) is worse today. I had a headache when I went to bed and it was even worse when I woke up. I've already taken painkillers which sort of helped. And my sinuses are exploding and have been for several days. My throat feels like it's made of bits of sharp stone and leftover pieces of barbed wire, and I keep sneezing like crazy. I also kind of ache all over. I'm not sure how much of that is from all my exertions yesterday or if it's more a sick-thing.

I'm looking towards probably going to the dorm to stay tomorrow evening. Depending on what time I get there, I will try to hunt down all my friends either that night or sometime Sunday. I miss you guys.

And I have $20 in the bank. Which has to last me for a couple of weeks. *cries*

So, yeah, that's me. How're you guys doing?
Just spent far too long arguing with the online Fafsa form. Which, yes, I know I should have done months ago, but try telling my mother that. It's slightly impossible for me to do it without her assistance as I would lack her tax information. *sigh* And I *know* me and mikey are both going to get our fafsa's audited *again*. Again, I say, Blegh.

I think I shall go read pr0n and look for icons, now. I need to unwind.

I really do not want to have to go to the dentist tomorrow. Damn needles.

Work today was... very busy. But I actually enjoyed it. I missed my job. Don't ask me *why*, as it is little more than menial office work, but I did. Don't worry, this will pass quickly. Like, about the first day I have to go in at 8:00 AM.

I have a headache. :-(

I need to read webcomic updates from like... the last 2 weeks. For some reason lately I am only able to read webcomics in spurts rather than regularly. I do not have this problem during the school year. Probably because I have nothing else to do at work.

I need to watch last Sunday's ep of QAF.

I need to look over the driver's manual to make sure there is nothign drastic I am forgetting that I will need to be aware of for the test tomorrow. And I need to make sure we have the current insurance card for the Kia actually present in the vehicle. Cuz, yeah, that would be good.
Oh and I need to remember to get a new copy of the Kia's registration while we are at the courthouse tomorrow, so that we will be able to pick up Francisco on post Friday.

And also. I am broke. Well, I'm not actually broke yet, but damn near every dime I have is already allocated toward things that I will need prior to the next time I will get money. (My hopeful estimate is about two weeks into the semester - if it takes longer than that, I will be broker than broke. ;_; )
The good news is that almost everything money-wise that needs to be taken care of in the next 5 or so weeks (including but not limited to concerts, birthdays, anniversaries, and outfitting the dorm bed) has already been taken care of or is allocated for in my self-accounting. So unless anything crazy and random comes up, I will have *enough* money, I will just not have *spare* money. So I'm not *dire*, just sad because I only have about $40 splurge money for the next 5 weeks. It makes my shopping muscle cry. Budgets suck. The new semester needs to be here now. Next summer I am totally getting a job. This sucks.
