Ugh. Didn't fall asleep until after one last night. I TRIED to go to bed earlier, but I just ended up laying there for forever.

My eyes hurt.

those of you who've been around for a while (okay, forever, like me!) know that i've got a habit of giving nicknames to the men in my life.

i think i need one for Steve... who has taken to texting me in the middle of the night, whilst forgetting that he now lives 2 time zones away!!!!



i should've responded to him this morning when the beeping of my phone woke me at 4:00 - because i took half a Lunestra last night and was out when my head hit the pillow at 11:30. but i'm a nice girl (sort of) and won't do that to anyone, no matter how much they might deserve it!



for anyone wondering who the heck Steve is... i went on one date with him this time 2 years ago. we had an amazing time together (or so i thought - i think it's around page 12 of the online dating thread), what was supposed to be one drink turned into me getting home at 2:00. then nada!

i ran into him at the market a couple of months later, we went out a couple more times - again, *great* dates - and again they went nowhere. so i didn't bother asking him again.

i ran into him a few times (his son lives near me) and we've kept texting and emailing sporadically. earlier this year, the company he works for closed and he went to Alberta to look for work. he was home for a short while over the summer, but spent his time on his boat on Lake Erie, so we didn't connect.

a month ago, he sends me a series of texts telling me that i'm the woman he thinks about all the time and wants to be with and that he made a mistake letting me go. my reaction was this...



he couldn't have told me this when we lived in the same city???

so now i get texts and emails all the time signed with kisses...



but he thinks he might have to move out there permanently and there's no way i'm leaving my job and house... *sigh*

I am constantly amazed that women get picked apart if their bodies are not in perfect condition (not too skinny, not too fat, not too curvy, not too flat, not too flabby, not too muscle-y), but men "get by" with anything.

This show Marriage under Construction on TLC....the wife looks like your average American woman size (maybe a 12 or 14...I think that's average these days) and the husband is morbidly obese. I rarely see the reverse. And the guy being bigger is often framed like some kind of virtue. If it were a woman she'd probably be like that newscaster a few months back, getting letters telling her how disappointed people are in her inability to get in shape.

Thoughts I think after being awake for 6 hours. smh

So I have these lovely things I managed to procure called laundry baskets. They are these absolutely amazing devices designed to hold laundry. But they don't seem to be very intuitive. No one in my house seems to get them but me. I am constantly finding laundry right next to the basket. the exception being when I have a clean load in the laundry room that I haven't put away yet. Then everyone puts their dirty clothes in that one.
One of my coworkers is in the process of divorcing her abusive husband of 25 years.
My boss essentially just DEFENDED the man to me - well, more along the lines of victim-blaming "well, she had to have known he was like that when they got married" ; "yeah, he was violent and would beat people but other people, right? like people he encountered on the streets"

One should cancel out the other! Also, why would you think I couldn't tell, srsly. Like hiding a walrus behind a cheese grater.

I think I get tipsy by proxy or something. I once did a backward somersault over a couch - twice - at a party where I was one of two people not drinking. I landed them, though, which proves my sobriety.

How do people drink all that beer when they're losing at beer pong? My friend and I were playing with water and we had to make the game end with fewer points scored because we couldn't fit all that liquid in our stomachs. Also, I am never playing any kind of drinking pong ever again because the ball goes everywhere and that is gross.

I was always given a laundry list of drugs I was never allowed to try by my friends. I was never quite sure where that came from, but I would play along. Apparently, I was jacked up enough already and specific substances would make my heart explode.

Thanks to your Public Service Announcement, I live to see another day!

I have had an eventful morning, and I did not want it. UghandBlah! Maybe I can sleep now.

I'll reiterate. Boss, you're playing with fire. These systems need maintenance every week. If anything, just a shutdown and restart. But don't take my 24 years of experience as a tech & sys admin seriously. Listen to the non-communicative dumbazz sys admin that nobody can trust because he just gabbles nonsense all the time. You're the only one who takes him seriously as a sys admin for a reason.

Kat, I am sorry you were disappointed by the show. That is a let down. I have been to a few where the sound levels were messed up. It is a let down.

curlysue, it was so funny to read back over that and remember how I felt! I ended up loving CT.

RB, that's so interesting to know! Getting referred for physical therapy stems from a stopped up ear that medications aren't helping and when I asked my ENT about a knot in my neck (on the very off chance it was ear related) she asked me if I clinch my teeth and that problems in the jaw can directly affect the ear and neck. Today was only my second visit so he's slowly introducing me to things to do at home. I'm supposed to do heat, cold, and massage in and out and repeat a few times (I may have that out of order, I don't have my paper in front of me). When he showed me the inside massage it hurt getting up in there like that with my thumb, definitely not something that can be done from the outside so I certainly see how it could be beneficial, I just had no idea that was a treatment! It made me realize just how tender my jaw is that wasn't evident from the outside massage. He also gave me yellow dot stickers to place around the house to remind myself to relax my jaw and stop clinching. I should just paper the entire house with dots because I catch myself constantly clinching all day. I get bad headaches too, but I think it's coming from my neck.

I also have a 20 year problem with neck pain, but that's a whole other story.

My symptoms do not fit migranes, so they were all "stumped" as to what was wrong with me.

I say "stumped" because a with little perseverance on my end, and a $13 book about Trigger Points and how to massage them, I managed to relieve every last symptom I had... I feel like I was being jerked around to keep the cash flow going.

So, as of right now, I don't need meds or regular doctor appointments. I'm a believer in the healing powers of massage.

Massaging knotted muscles hurts like a #*@&%, but it gets less and less painful every day, and is worth it in the end.

I really want to like this Lifeproof case, because I appreciate how tightly sealed it is, but goddamn, the power button is freaking impossible! So is the silence button! My fingers are sore from pushing down on them!

So I told my mom to text me her SSN because I need it for some paperwork. Of course she says she doesn't know how and I explain that it's really very simple. I text her so all she has to do is reply. She texts back "I can't now" instead of texting me the number. WUT? Like, it no doubt took her longer to type that than her number, which I know she knows by heart. Day later, no number. I have to hand the papers in today. Someone give me a logical explanation of why she couldn't just text me the freaking number.


KurlyKae, aside from the weather, I think the shock is more SoCal versus northeast. I suppose to a lot of people Boston might seem more impressive, but coming where I'm coming from it's just not. I don't like the transportation, but it's better than a lot of other places. I find it extremely white and lacking in cultural mingling, but some find it diverse. And really, almost nobody knows how to ride an escalator here! I've had like one escalator ride where someone didn't clog up the left lane.
Mostly I think this Junot Diaz quote is actually really spot-on for me:

You’ve left New Jersey behind in “The Cheater’s Guide to Love,” and Yunior is living in Boston, a place he has little affection for. “Boston, where you’ve never wanted to live, where you’ve been exiled, becomes a serious problem,” he thinks. You, too, have lived in Boston for several years. Do you have more affection for the city than Yunior?

Technically, I split my time between N.Y.C. and Boston. But what you’re asking here—that’s a tough question. I’ve made some of the best friends of my life in the Boston area. Gotten to know the town and its peculiarities really well. I have community in Boston and Cambridge. There are places like The Million Year Picnic and East by Northeast and Merengue that feel like home to me. But the Boston area is also a deeply ****ed-up place. A lot less tolerant and diverse than I’m used to. For all its supposed liberalism, the racism in Boston can be stark, reminds me at times of the racism of my first years in the U.S.—seventies blatant.

But at the end of the day, it all comes down to a simple fact: I dream about N.Y.C. and N.J. and the D.R. in ways I never dream about Boston or Cambridge. Maybe it’s because I didn’t grow up in New England, or maybe it’s just the way I’m built. It’s like that awesome line in “El Secreto de Sus Ojos”: “A man can change anything: his face, his family, his girlfriend, his religion, his God. But there’s something a man can’t change. A man can’t change his passion.” And my passions are my three original homes: the D.R., N.J., N.Y.C. That’s where my heart returns always.
Sorry FB friend, but I can't really get riled up about this:

Attachment 27987

Starbucks took an unpopular stance that unlike, say, Chick-fil-A, isn't about infringing on the rights of others.
Of course, this is all moot since I don't patronize SB anyway.

Ummm, friend is kind of a moron then? All the Starbucks here have a give to the troops program. You can buy a bag at a discount to send over there. They send them after they get so many together.
