i'm bleeding. quite early, too, i certainly wasn't expecting THAT for another week or two at LEAST. i told a coworker today at michaels that i normally joke around with...

me: "hey jen."
jen: "hey!"
me: "how you doin?"
jen: "good, and you?"
me: "you see... there's these gnomes.. and they're .. nyah high *measures with fingers*, and they're VERY angry."
jen: "oooh?"
me: "yes. and they're all weilding pitchforks."
jen: *raises eyebrow*
me: " and they've set up shop in my UTERUS. and they're...stabbing.. and ... digging.." *makes vicious stabbing and grinding motions with hands*
jen: "......................O_O............"

yeah. no matter who you are used to joking around with, be extra sure they have the same sense of humor as you before telling them about your angry uterus. i hurt, and i hurt BAD. i took drugs, it did not help. i stomped around and declared grumpily to anyone that would listen "my uterus HATES me!"

....

so anyway ;)

reading the prequel to the wheel of time series. not really any spoilers yet, i'm 3/4 the way through the book, and moiraine just now met lan. the first 3/4 of the book is about moiraine and siuan going through their final schooling at the tower and their testing to become aes sedai, and then leaving the tower to go look for the dragon reborn. quite dull, really. quite quite quite. i recommend it to only those that are die hard fans. one GOOD thing, is that almost the entire book so far looks at the world through moiraine and lan's eyes, which is a nice difference that we really didn't have in the other books. for a change, you get to see why they behave certain ways and such.

...

work is.. well, work. both jobs today, 8am to 10 pm, both jobs tomorrow, 8 am to 10 or 11 pm. i work michaels 4 days next week, and office max 4 days. good news? only one day that i have to work both. bad news? i don't get a single day off.

but.

i requested the 17th, 18th, and 19th off from michaels, and the 18th - 21st off from office max, so at least i can have a nice lil mini vacation for ME, for my honorary 29th birthday.

a woman came into work today, SWARMING with children. she had 6 of them, i think. they were all hers. when i looked at her i.d. when i was taking the info down for her check, i noticed something:

she was two years YOUNGER than i.

i instantly felt like an old maid.

but yanno... i really don't care for a relationship at this point. in fact, the idea of one terrifies the HELL out of me. i think 'relationship' and i think 'trapped'.

it's quite nice to take comfort in being single once again, something i haven't done for a really really long time.

*nod*

but i must go bathe now, so that i can get up at butt thirty in the morning and work again.

love yous, miss yous.

New Spring wasnt all that bad, but most of it was from the Legends short story. I want new stuff, not prequels. Finish the book. Blah.

As far as the woman with 6 kids goes, it doesnt mean you are old, it means you Chose Wisely.

that's my opinion on the matter, too, about the kids. course, i'm not bashing her for her choices, mind you, i'm just relieved that i don't have any.

I have yet to purchase or READ new spring. I'm grumping in RJ's general direction until he comes out with book 11. MEH on his head.

maybe he needed to write that book, or finish writing it or whateverthehell to freshen up his mind for something newer and more spectacular.

On the flip side that woman has to go home with those six kids, feed those six kids, and deal with those six kids (if they are hers) father(s) as well. You go home to EverQuest and roomates, and of course us LJ'ers... sounds pretty good to me when compared to her potential life.

New Spring is the first WoT book that I've actually liked since... oh, book 6 or so? I still haven't read CoT, even though I bought it the month it came out.. the first two chapters are /so/ boring!! But I actually really liked NS... course.. I never read the short story, so..

i hadn't read the short story, either...

i started book ten, got instantly bored to tears, and put it down and picked up The Death Gate Cycle.

i couldn't BELIEVE what a breath of fresh air that was, reading Weis and Hickman's light hearted easy reads compared to Jordan's 40278892347298 characters and politics politics politics...

but now i'm almost done with that series *wipes wistful tear from eye* i don't know where to turn to next!

the other day in Walmart, I saw a couple with two kids...one kid was maybe 2 or 3, the other was a baby in a baby carrier. the scary thing was the father was *maybe* my age, and the mom was probably at least a couple years younger. yikes. made me feel like an old maid, too, but in a good way. I'd rather be alone at this point in life than dealing with kids.

exactly.

every once in a great while, i'll get a pang for being in a relationship or married with kids...

... then i look at my lifestyle, and it would take SO much of the fun out of it at this point!

I have occasional pangs for the relationship angle, but the only pangs for children are the pangs that come from churning stomach bile. *is not good with kids and doesn't want any for a looong time, if ever*

well, i certainly can't get RID of it, or stop it from happening, so i HAVE to TRY to make light of it.

or otherwise, i would kill every man i know out of anger that we have to go through it and they don't.
