This year I've been busy!
Last week I pulled viii_digit's hair (-5 points). In November I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points). Last Wednesday I ruled Duluth, Minnesota as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). In January I saved a busload of nuns in Angola (326 points). Last Tuesday I put gum in tigeryuri's hair (-12 points).
Overall, I've been naughty (-372 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!

The thing I hate most about working days is having to drive in 100 degree weather with no air conditioning. Current Mood: hot

My boss' brother died of a drug overdose Friday night. I didn't know him very well, being that he has been in jail for the last three weeks and I only have been working there since May, but he seemed like a nice guy. Melissa has done a lot for him to try and get him straightened up. Work has not been the happy place it usually is this week.
Last night we went to see 1408. Very good. I highly recommend it, especially if you've read the story. Current Mood: more coffee, please

I had this dream that I was going to my car to leave for somewhere on an errand (or something. the details escape me now). On the way there, I saw swarms of wasps coming out of the ground. Many of them were attacking and killing flying birds. I remember being petrified.
I haven't done any dream interpretation for a while, but I can't help thinking that this one might be symbolic, especially given how clear everything was.

Visited my friend's little soap shop today. I went to go pick up some awesome organic shea butter she just got in. She buys huge amounts of stuff in bulk and extends the same price to other soapmakers that want in on it. $4.25 per pound! It's good, cause I was just about to spend nearly twice that.
I covet her store! She has a full kitchen and product everywhere! She showed me her new silicone-lined, pine box molds. OMG! I need to save some cash to get some. The soap just pops out and no more lining with freezer paper or huge hassles trying to remove the stuff when it sticks. She also has these cutters made with piano wire that cut all the bars at the same time to the same size. *drool* No more blisters from cutting with a knife and a miter box.
Oh! AND she found a source of sandalwood oil that isn't endangered! It comes from the South Pacific. It isn't quite the same as Chinese or Indian sandalwood, but it's good enough! I still smell good right now from trying out all her EOs, hydrosols and absolutes.
Maybe I'll make some soap today. She gave me some great advice using certain oils and botanicals to color.

Well, it looks like I got the other job (as if there was any doubt). What's funny is that my current boss sent me the email saying that Melissa had hired me. :) They apparently have this deal where if any E-clinic employees apply at West Salem, Melissa is supposed to call Kim (at the E-clinic) to ask if there are any "issues". I guess it happened that a former employee got hired there and lasted all of four days before being sacked. She was a bitch though. I was at least up front about the fact that I am opinionated. Michelle said that people *know* I'm a bitch when they first meet me, so there shouldn't be any surprises there. Gee, I have nice friends.
Bottom line is more money, no time, health insurance. Current Mood: satisfied

Went to West Salem Animal Hospital today for a job interview. I know two of the three doctors personally and I am good friends with the receptionist. I am led to believe that this interview is just a formality. I'll find out for sure by the end of the week. The money's good, but it's a second full time job. What do I care though. It isn't like I have a life anyway. :)

My stepmother is a bitch-ho from hell. Also a two-faced worm. Still. And it's getting worse as she ages.
Other than that, the family reunion was awesome! It went even better than I could have hoped for and now I am looking into how I can get to Australia this next year. I would also love to visit my cousins in Israel ASAP, but there are a few other Middle Eastern countries I want to see first. That trip will take more planning because as soon as I set foot in Israel, I am blacklisted from almost everywhere else.
Back to work. I hate Sundays. Current Mood: coffee

|Getting ready for the family reunion...
This is a reunion over 50 years in the making. I still feel somewhat detached from it. It's totally surreal to think that it's *my* family that lived through the Holocaust and it's *my* family that is finally reunited after more than half a century. It's sort of like a memory of a film I saw. Yet it's real. I just watched The Pianist (Fucking fantastic!). I had no idea that director Roman Polanski is also a survivor. Apparently he watched the Germans take his mother off to Auschwitz while he and his father were taken to the Krakow ghetto. Still seems like it should be fiction and not something that actually happened to real people. You know?
I guess maybe why I am feeling so nervous about it is because my step-mom is a cow. She has this little way of turning everything into something negative. I hope she doesn't ruin it the way she wrecked Christmas. And my life. And everything. Oh well. It isn't her family. If it makes her unhappy that she is no longer the only family (besides my sister and me) that my dad has, she can just get her butt back to Canada.
Still, it will be nice to see my dad. And my sister. Maybe Rejane will drop dead. I hear she is taking high blood pressure meds now. Current Mood: contemplative

I know I used to post here a lot. Lately, though, I've been all about the MySpace. So, if you wanna know what I've been up to on a more regular basis, check it out (most of you already are). I still read everything on the friends page.
That's all. I know you care.

|Pet food recall. Here's the scoop:
Menu Foods is a corporation that manufactures many different types of pet foods. A bad batch was recalled this week.
What this means to you, the pet owner:
- It is ONLY canned and pouched foods
- It is ONLY a certain batch, so if you are suspicious, go to the following website to see if the UPC and expiration date match any of the listed products: www.menufoods.com/recall. Only foods matching BOTH the UPC code and expiration date are recalled.
- If your pet is acting sick and you aren't sure whether yours was a bad batch of food, get thee to the vet for blood tests!
- If your pet is sick and you KNOW you were feeding one of the recalled products, take your pet to the vet NOW for blood tests and fluid support.
Folks, while this is serious, it is nothing to worry about. Every store that I know of has pulled the bad food off the shelves. Just take care of yourselves and your pets by being proactive and go to the website.

So I'm sitting here thinking about the job offer I just got and how pissed off I am about it. My friend pretty much handed me a job at a vet hospital where I wouldn't have to commute 36 miles twice a day. Also, I could have the part time hours I want. The office manager called me yesterday and asked me if I would consider lowering my salary expectations to $9 per hour. I wanted to ask if she would consider jumping in front of a moving train. $9 per hour only if they are also paying for my gas, my rent, full benefits...Basically in their fucking dreams.

|The weird way my brain works, or "AAACCCCCKKKKK!!!!!!"
I know I'm PMSing because last night I had a dream that I had babies (so I either have PMS or it's just because I'm smack in the middle of my most fertile years). YIKES!! Two babies, as a matter of fact. Then, either to protect myself or simply because I can't get my head around ever having children, they morhped into dogs. I woke up thinking, "Aw! I want a doggy!" Current Mood: Holy crap!

Bad news: My car issue seems to be a wiring problem.
Better news: It's covered under warranty.
Of course this means that I have to take it to the shop *again*.
I'll probably be starting a second job in the next week or two. I am waiting for the lead tech at Eastgate to get back from CE in Vegas so she can tell me when to come in. At least she claims it's CE. Knowing her she's been gambling and drinking mojitos all week.
In other work-related news this month - I have to take a radiology course to get certified. Read: Nap my way through 20 hours of lectures and take a standardized test. It gets me...nothing. Just a "required" piece of documentation stating that I know better than to take x-rays of my head just for fun.
In March, I have CE. Unfortunately it isn't any place fun. I'm only going for the free breakfast.
I just love being able to post from *home*! Yay for free internet!
|Wednesday, February 21st, 2007|
After a long hiatus from having internet access at home, I am pleased to announce that my new PCI wireless card was successfully installed and is just now picking up my neighbor's internet!! YAY! Now I don't have to worry about using my 1 hour per day at the library only checking my umpteen email addresses. I can go back to *fully* wasting all my freetime on the 'net!
I am so happy. I can't even tell you. Current Mood: nerdy

My jaw makes a popping noise lately. That can't be good.
|Tuesday, January 30th, 2007|
I have been staring at my CV a lot lately and making some changes to it. I am so sick of looking at it now that I want to smash my computer monitor. *ugh* I think it's time to get feedback on it so that I can look at it fresh. If anyone wants to look at it for me and tell me how it sucks, I would be happy to forward it along. Current Mood: blah

Messed up my car driving in the snow. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
$700 later and I will be thinking of creative ways to pay my bills in February.
