life, updated [24 Jun 2007|04:13pm]
[ mood | blah ]

I have not posted on here lately, so I thought that an update would be in order.

Even though I have a ton of little things to do to prepare for August, I have decided to enjoy a couple hours of just sitting at my house with the puppy and my cat today.
oh yah, I got a puppy! She is a (now) 8 week old Jack Russell Terrier.
She is named Sparrow because she has this brownish/black patch over her one eye
She looks like a Pirate and I love Johnny Depp.
Kathy at work came up with the name and it definitely stuck.
You need to see her, she'll melt your heart.
Also, she is hilarious. Oh, and she hates furbys.
Right now she is all curled up into a tiny, sleepy ball beside me on the bed.
I'm going to try to post a picture of her soon.

I'm off to get some food before my union meeting tonight.

whoa this game is creepy [02 May 2007|11:25pm]
So we closed on the house yesterday. holy crap. all the appliances get delivered tomorrow and we'll hopefully start painting this weekend sometime.

did you know that there is a game for the gamecube that includes a story with a bunch of monsters and as your character's sanity falls, the game actually starts to do stuff?? seriously, like make bugs crawl across the screen or the whole screen start to turn....it's freaky.

holy crap my life just went in a billion different directions [20 Apr 2007|10:12pm]
so on tuesday i'll be going in for my 3rd round of blood tests.

for months i have been shedding hair like mad, gaining weight, and the worst: so tired i can barely stay awake for more than 4 hours at a time.

now, you all should know that my mother has had an underactive thyroid since she was roughly 18. she took me to the doctor because all of these things i've been feeling are symptoms and it's hereditary. the first round of tests came back and my blood sugar is good (i was worried since diabetes runs in the family too) but my thyroid levels were super, super high. the result: taking a pill of sinthoid every day for the rest of my life and another blood test. this blood test resulted in them now setting me up with an endothronologist (i think that's what they are called), basically a specialist, asap. also, on monday i get to get an ultrasound done on my neck because the doctor said my thyroid is also swollen and they want to make sure that there are no cysts on it. oh, and more bloodwork done on tuesday. they still have to check me in a couple weeks because they are most likely going to have to up the dosage of my medicine until my thyroid levels are regular. i just hope that this is it and i can get it regulated and feel better. i really don't mind taking a pill every day, i just don't want them to find anything like cancer or something.

so wish me luck on my doctor visits....what a way to start out using my health insurance, huh? yah...i'm a little scared

in other news, we've moved the wedding date up to august of this year...no, im not pregnant. it's because we found a house so fast and close on may 1st so we may as well get married sooner, too, right?

i hate snow [13 Apr 2007|10:34pm]
so apparently we are on the brink of a '100 year storm' this weekend....in april. of course, it's to hit on sunday and i so happen to have given up my usual sunday off to work for a fellow coworker as she needed the day off. if i get snowed in there i will cry....or just walk the long walk home because i refuse to drive in crappy weather.

of course it would snow in april when i FINALLY get an appointment for bloodwork to get done on monday so that i can finally find out what is wrong with me. boo. hopefully i won't have to cancel.

maybe this will be like every other snow storm that they call for in altoona and it won't be anything. maybe.

holy crap, it's me at work!!!!
cheer up, emo kid

it's my night in, so it's time for an update! [30 Mar 2007|10:14pm]
[ mood | busy ]

So work has FINALLY calmed down as far as calls go. We haven't been completely swarmed with a bunch of calls in about two weeks and i garauntee it is because it's friggin' georgous outside and people are finally realizing that there is more to life than cable. I'm sure that will change once the spring fever passes. seriously, you would be blown away by the importance that people put on tv in their lives.

I think i'm going to watch the first two episodes of the Tudors tonight on vod since i can. it's a new series for Showtime about Henry the eighth and it premieres sunday. it looks good.

i'm super excited, wanna know why???? i get to see TMNT and Blades of Glory this weekend!! i was supposed to see tmnt last weekend, but misread the times online and ended up being 20 minutes late, and there was no way that i would miss the beginning.

mmmm...bagel bites

so my st. patty's had to be altered. [18 Mar 2007|01:35pm]
[ mood | calm ]

the original plan was for me to work my shift at work until the usual 5pm, then head over with everyone to Zack's (the one time of the year i go in that place) to see the Michael O'Brian band. We get there and even though we had some friends saving us a table on the patio (the band started at 4) the door lady wouldn't let us in because of the crowd. she said as soon as some people left we could go in. another guy had a table for his friends and apparently they were better than us because even though we had been standing there for at least 15 minutes they could just go in.

also, a line had started after us. the lady then lets these two hags of old women go in. we mention that we were here first, and she asks us how many of us there are. we tell her 6, and she says that she has to wait some more time to let us in because that's too many and then let's another couple in that came after us. so, after being pissed at her rationalizing that she could let 2 couples in, 4 people, but not the 6 of us...we change our plans and end up at the knickerbocker drinking Guinesses and ordering a buffet-amount of food. not too many people were at the knick when we arrived, but soon the overflow of everywhere else arrived and we played some Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly on the jukebox and made our own Irish fun. stupid door lady.

the funny thing was i was home and sleeping by 10pm.

today i get to clean. yay.

i hate people [20 Feb 2007|11:07pm]
[ mood | exhausted ]

people never cease to disgust me
my job reminds me every day how truly sad the human race has become. for eight hours a day i get to hear people bitch and complain about the price and/or their opinion of the quality of cable. since all of my calls are recorded, i am forced to keep my cool and roll my eyes as they use their "blind courage" to tell me what they think about "us people" and this "horrible company". here is what we all want to say back to you assholes:

"First of all, IT'S JUST CABLE! Seriously, you selfish prick, there are people dying, homeless, going through personal trauma or maybe just plain fighting a war for your sorry ass and all you can do with your free time is piss and moan about AN ENTIRE HOUR you had to find something else to do...like read a friggin' book...because your cable was out. oh, and that woman that was in the accident that caused the outage because she hit a pole: she's fine, thanks for asking, jerk.

You do realize that not too long ago, people did things with their family other than watch tv. Monopoly will take up a good 4 hours of your night. Oh, and i don't care that you were on hold for 40 minutes. Don't blame the person who answers the phone, blame all the folks just like you who are all calling in at the exact same time. And bitching for 15 minutes about your wait doesn't make things go faster.

Here's some news for you: if you don't pay your bill, you will have your services shut off. Just because you didn't receive a paper bill in the mail doesn't mean that the cable company thought that you should get free cable for a month. you know what's due.

Hey tough guy, I've seen broadcasting in Hi-Def, it isn't the greatest thing in the world. You won't die without it for one day."

phew. now to finish my super-strong drink and food.

people need lives. really. [02 Feb 2007|10:54pm]
[ mood | drained ]

today was the crappiest day ever at work. some old guy made me cry and he thought he was the shit for getting "under my collar". wow, hope you feel better about your life and being on a fixed income, you old fuck. the guy called in about his bill and refused to accept what i was telling him he was being charged for. basically, he knew that his one package was so-and-so dollars and that digital was only free for 3 months...now that that was up he refused to take it off the bill and take the equipment back, but apparently didn't think he should be charged either because "he's on a fixed income"...ok, don't have services you can't pay for. He kept contradicting himself after that too, like asking the name of my supervisor and when i said that i could transfer him so that they could also explain this he goes "oh, you'd like that so you don't have to talk to me, wouldn't you?"...ummmm, you asked for the supervisor. So then he finally "let me off the hook" aka, i asked if there was anything else i could help him with and then hung up. By then i was so pissed i was crying, and my head supervisor let me take a break. She listened to the call and agreed that he was abusive, but she did tell me (which i thought i couldn't do) that when it gets to a point where they are just being abusive, that i can give them the option to talk to a supervisor or end the call. It's still so weird to me that i have a job where my supervisors back me up when the customer is clearly wrong.

now that that rant is done....i'm crumpling it up and it is gone. it really is amazing the blind courage that people have when they are not face to face with you. heck, i know i was right and he still has a bill to pay.

i just made an entire box of stove top.. mmm [26 Jan 2007|11:47pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

I just realized that I have no updated the look of my livejournal (short of changing my icon now and a year ago) since about 9th grade. I really have no plans to take the time to change again, seeing as how I have no idea what codes to use anymore. Oh well, I just did my myspace, what more do you want from me, fools??

It's weird getting back into the whole "internet" thing after not having it for just over a year. I thought that I would really miss it once I graduated from penn state, but I just kind of forgot about it unless I went somewhere where I could clean out my email and check bills. I really didn't miss the drama and the slutty people that get on these blogs and don't care about anyone else or the relationships they may be in. Oh well, what can you do? Honestly, now that I have the net again I really enjoy viewing the drama from afar. I like keeping in touch again with some of my old pals, but as far as allowing a livejournal/myspace post to make me cry.....psshhhh. no way.

It is nice to kind of scroll through my friends' lists and catch up on people.

oh, and I finally have aim again. I had to download the newest version and I have no idea how to use it, but I'm on again. message me, my loves.

testing out my new dvr is way fun [19 Jan 2007|10:58pm]
[ mood | drained ]

so on tuesday i received all of my free and fun services from work. i now have uber cable with all of the movie channels (which i now tend to use as background noise when trying to fall asleep or to get ready to, like the other morning with some movie called 'the island'), fast internet, phone and a dvr. in fact, right now i'm watching grey's anatomy....a show i absolutely love but have had to miss practically every week since i started this job.

really, the best thing about having the services is now i know what people are talking about when they have problems such as "my dvr is bring up this message when i try to record" i'll actually know what they are talking about.

this week is almost over and that is lovely. today i had my 90 day evaluation at work. i don't get a raise until 6 months but i got some really great feedback from my boss. rock.

man, this episode is sad. also, none of this entry is grammatically correct. sorry.

kareoke revolution: american idol "simon" is just as mean [08 Jan 2007|12:26am]
[ mood | blank ]

My room is currently a mess, but the kitchen is clean which makes me feel tons better. I hate a messy, yucky, grimey home.

I bought a new Chuck P book today. Now I can add Choke to the list.
work wasn't as crazy this week, which was wonderful because I was on the verge of a meltdown.
I'm going to make myself a drink now and watch some tv.

k.bye. :)

happy splurging for me!! [04 Jan 2007|10:56pm]
so i totally got a new laptop for myself in order to accomodate my new-awesome-free internet that will be being installed in a week.

i'm gonna sell my old laptop on ebay.
i'm currently on the new one and totally wireless. i know that isn't a new thing to everyone, but it's totally exciting to me. i wanna go to sheetz and sip a white chocolate latte and write.

[ mood | tired ]

my job is going pretty well for being on the phone for 8 hours listening to people bitch about how awful i am and the company is for turning their cable off when they haven't bothered to pay their bill since september, or about the stupid live games on thursdays that we can't carry because it would raise prices up about 800%...oh, and my personal favorite: how i personally am ruining one woman's children's christmas because she doesn't know how to budget her bills and gifts at one time.

honestly, it isn't so bad. i get free uber cable, internet and phone plus awesome benefits. suck it, asshole football people!! :)
