i don't even know what day it is. weird.

and oh how i love my computer NOT working. a not working computer is bad. ("use the whip!" " but it's a not working whip!") i think it ate something that upset it's stomach, like a worm. i know that eating worms would upset MY stomach. still can't find that dumb windows installation disc so that i can completely reformat my c drive, and i spose that getting a new version of norton would help, too. i haven't had any automatic updates since mid march. bleh.

so, um... unless i can get this rectified soonly (even running adaware and spybot is finding nothing that is causing my computer to take literally 10 min to even pull up my home page when i click on the firefox symbol), you probably won't hear from me for awhile. feel free to contact me via text or cell and such things.

also contemplating biting my self consciousness in the arse and wearing a tank top for my walk to work in attempts to get rid of my farmer's tan before the wedding next weekend. my forearms are becoming so tan that they almost look DIRTY. or that they used to belong to someone else, that i lost mine in a tragic accident and traded them with an immigrant named Lupe or something. so as self conscious as i am and have always been about my arms, and in thinking about how all the tiny girls at work wear tank tops.... i try to tell myself that it doesn't matter, they don't give a crap, it's freaking SUMMER, and i'm not crushing on anyone there, anyway, so why would i think that they would give a hooey if my arms were a bit flappy? besides. they can like me for me. i assume they like me for me, not because I M TEH BUFFEST.

stupid self image, anyhoo. i'm sure it will be MUCH worse during the wedding when i'm clad in bright shiny lavendar and have the tan of a farmer. sexeh.

off to work then, for day one of eight in a row. woot. and methinks i'm closing for every one of them. wahoo.

Computer not working?
*looks up like prarie dog*
Computer not working *taps foot* You do know what i do for a living right?

Ok let run donw the usuall stuff, I know you said you have adawre and spybot but what versions? They latest are 1.4 for Spybot and 1.06 for adaware, make sure you update the batterns.

Yeah Norton's really sucks because they get their money! Don't pay the Mafia, you get nothing! Lucky there are free realtime virus scanners that do a nice good. I like Avast 4 home (www.avast.com) Its free, you do have to register after 14 days but you get a key that lasts 14 months! After that... register again! They tell you todo this, registering is free. Get it, update and scan.

However before we get to all this you can try a nice little crap cleaner for you PC, just make sure if you have like previsouly typed urls and such saved in your address box that you want to kee, that you pay attention to what the options it has to clean. www.ccleaner.com, its free, and will get rid of the junk.

Get it and run it first, THEN do this. Open my computer, right click Drive C, select properties then tools and finally hit the defrag button (not sure what version of windows you have or I could have saved you some steps)Let the computer defrag, I'm sure you are gonna have a lot that needs to be defragged. Walk away and come back later when its done :D


Finally head on over to microsoft's (yeah the head huncho's them selves)and get the Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta. its free but MS is going to want to check that your version of windows is legal, since you've got notthing to worry about you will be all good. You can get that, update it and let it scan too.


If you have any other problems you know where and how to reach me, since you've got broadband you can even let me take a look to fix things as well, hopefully I won't :P


P.S. Why do you augment your body image with the complements from your friends. Ok so it isn't easy to do but they are right, you look a whole lot getter than you think.


Back into the sewers I go!

Re: Computer not working?
In fact, I totally looked this up again because I deleted Norton off of my computer and couldn't remember the name "avast".

Thanks!

I actually had a virus that worked *through* Norton. That was scary. So I swear against Norton. I use McAfee. But McAfee isn't cheap unless it comes with something. Perhaps sign up for a free month of AOL? They give you McAfee with auto-updates for free. Just remember to cancel!!!

If you need windows, let me know. I think we have copies laying around from my dad's work.

I'm self-conscience about my arms too. Sleeveless shirts are something I try to avoid at all costs. But, as you said, it's HOT. Screw them all!

besides, i know that i'm not the fattest, scariest woman in the city, so... and even if i WERE... it's also not like i'm going to work to pick me up some mens.

i'm still sworn off the mens.

-to even your tan..
or fade it out..
you can use buttermilk compresses about 20 min before bath or shower) & that will fade your tan -
keep repeating process until your tan the even shade you require
p.s if you don't have buttermilk -plain milk will work well also
It doesn't matter what %

fuck 'em. Wear a tank top. It's hot outside and so what if your arms are jiggly. So are the arms of 76% of all women. Be proud!

And as far as tans go, try Sublime Bronze by L'Oreal. It's awesome! And sparkly too. Smells pretty good for a fake tanner, and it's really easy to use (positively streak proof - I would know - I collect self-tanner streaks like nobody's business. Comes from that lack of coordination thing).

coordination is SO overrated. my best stories COME from lack of coordination!!! :)

now that summer is coming upon us again, methinks i shall follow your advice. i've been wearing sunscreen on my face on my walks to work, but dumbly thinking that since it's not overly hot or bright out, i don't need to screen my chest. it already looks like i've been baking on a beach in a lovely V.

Eight straight days of work?!?! I hope you get a decent break after that...that's insane.

now sometimes i wish that i had to deal with that all the time - now on the only two days off a week i get (monday and wednesday), i have band practice and improv class on one night, band practice on the other, and school both days, so it means that the only days that feel like "days off" are on saturdays, when i don't have school and usually don't have to work unitl 3.

Re: ('-' )y
yes, yes, you certainly should. not that i've been the best at developing or maintaining it, but my friends have certainly seemed to stick with me over the years! some of them for the entire FIVE, even!

The great comedienne Elvira Kurt does a fab bit on comparing childhood to adulthood, where she starts with mimicing a child crying over some inconsequential, replaceable thing (possibly ice cream that has been dropped) and crying out that they don't want the replacement.

Then she says that adults should be able to do the same, since we have things to really cry about. She says in a tear-stricken tone:

Child voice: My computer's broken! My computer's broken!
Adult voice: Here, have this computer.
Child voice, indignant and crying harder: I don't want another computer! I want MY computer! WAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

And it's so true.

*hugs* to you for your troubles!

That sucks about your computer not working! I'd die if my computer doesn't work! I don't like wearing tank tops much either, I don't like my arms much!

I can't stand wearing sleeves! I wear sleeveless shirts year round -- in the winter I just add a light jacket. And not just 'cause I live in GA, either, I dressed that way in MD and PA too. Sleeves are restricting!

You should definitely wear tanktops, your arms are nothing to be ashamed of! Besides, stepping out of your comfort zone clothing-wise is such a good way to grow confidence. (says the nude model) ;-)

thank you so much for your confidence in me and my arms!! summer is upon us again, so we shall see how willing i am to step out of THAT comfort zone!

i'm quite proud of myself for all the comfort zones i've stepped out of this year, with dealing with school and improv classes. it's such a wonderful thing to be able to go play idiotic games and let my inner child roam free, and to be forced upon a stage to act a scene out that cannot ever be rehearsed!!
