working two jobs gives you odd freedoms that you don't normally have, i.e. the freedom to buy weird random things, like my eighty gagillionth package of letterhead (apparently, i'm planning on writing a TON of letters..someday.) and six of the last 12 six-packs of pumpkin ale (the real stuff, not that blue moon crap.) so i'm set for a day or two at least. i plan on making these LAST. it still pisses me off to no end that only one store in my 'area' carried it this year, and that was a piddly safeway in downtown portland - a big deal if you don't have a car.

thanks, daniel.

going through weird relationshippy moods lately. i can't even put my finger on it. moodiness, methinks. i go from frantically craving it, to abhoring the thought of being attached to someone else. i don't know what's wrong with me, though since i haven't even partially dated in *thinks* four YEARS, i'm beginning to be paranoid that there's something a bit off-kilter with me.

yesterday was an odd day where i swear i hit myself in the head at least ten times. it started with being on a ladder and reaching up to pull down a box, which had a heavy wood frame unseen on top, which promptly fell and belted me in the lip. i started screaming in the best way i could without offending coworkers with sailor like candor: "freaking HELL, someone needs to FREAKING be FREAKING SHOT! GAH." *rinse, repeat as necessary*0000000000000000000000000000
..

that last thing was from bacci. it's kitty speak for 'yo.'

but anyhoo. i had giant spools of ribbon fall on my head as i was stocking stuff on bottom shelves. i thwacked myself in the face with boxes. i showered my face with chunks of halloween fodder. OOH. yesh. i got to spend the first moments of daylight outside in 30 degree weather, smashing pumpkins and getting PAID for it. granted, they weren't as satisfying had they been REAL pumpkins, but a hammer was certainly involved. manager denise and i bonded together to destroy anything in the store leftover from halloween or fall. this involved lots of hammering, cutting, smashing, tearing, etc. quite satisfying for getting out frustrations. ESPECIALLY when i got to hurl the Lemax stuff (those of you that don't collect them or haven't worked in a michaels, they're the glass/ceramic villages you see everywhere) as hard as i could at the edge of the glass garbage bin outside. YEEEEEEESSSSH. but still, underneath, i hated to see all of that stuff go to waste, when it was perfectly good stuff, although some of it looked like stuff that some ladies like to attach to those hideous holiday sweaters you see out and about.

so i worked 5 am to 10 am, then noon to 7 pm at officemax. came home and stayed awake until midnight, unbelievably, and then slept until one pm. it was such a hard sleep, that i woke in all sorts of discombobulatedness and stiffness. weird dreams involving Logan Cale and Michael Vaughn, though I can't put my finger on exactly what they were. there was a tree there, methinks.

two days til rent!
two weeks and a day until nickel creek!
two weeks and two days until zoo!
oh, yes.

hee hee. it amuses me that when i make a marvelous 3 playlist with pandora.com, they keep feeding me def leppard tunes.

i'm now going to use my guitar icon that i made of my hand, as i rather like it and haven't had a chance to post it. i love the capo, my long fingers, and the blurry bacci.

yes yes! once i had a few free moments, i wanted to talk to you about all of it. jess didn't want to because of not wanting to deal with the planning, getting, etc., and i figured that you would be able to help? it would be a small zoo, really.

I didn't like pumpkin ale, but yay for you getting the rare ale.

I want to see Rent tonight, but alas I have to wait until tomorrow afternoon because there is nowhere near me showing it at midnight.

i hope you're not working yourself TOO hard...just be careful! how much longer are you working at michael's?

though my answer has probably already been answered because i like to respond to things when they are no longer relevant...

i stopped working at michaels at the very end of december so that i could go back to school. it's amazing how many people (i don't think you're one of them!) seriously think that i'm band-ing, schooling, and working two jobs. i'm not THAT much of a masochist!

hee.

Every now and then my Dad has a celebration when he manages to get a case of his favorite brew. It's from a microbrewery in Alaska and they don't deliver to the East coast. Go fig.

what's funny is that we found a ton of it on clearance right at the end of the pumpkin ale season, and we STILL have a ton of it in the closet, although it's pretty much punkin ale season again. unfortunately, it's insanely buried, so we keep forgetting about it, as we have to crawl on our tummies to reach in and get some.

Remember when they say that once you learn how to ride a bike you never forget?

Well what they don't say is that when you go to start again you might be hisitent and that you will feel the palputations as you think about and start to ride again. Especially if when you stopped it wasn't for the best reasons.

What I'm trying to say is that don't get to hard and down on yourself, you've got through a lot and most certainly a long way and there is nothing wrong with you not being in the hesitent state to get back in there. Take you time go at your pace and see what you can see.

As far as teedering back in forth at this time of year, who wouldn't want to cuddle up with someone under the covers on a cold snowy day and watch either really sappy "chick" flicks or really horrible moster movies!

SO hugs dear, you'll get there.



Yeah smashing stuff feels good! I'd like to do it too, there was sites and places dedicated to destroying computer stuff and trust me when something has been not working right for an unknown reason it feels good to destroy it buy yes I do feel guilty when it could have been passed on to someone else.


OK, I'm done for now, have a good day.

reading this post made me all nostalgic for what was last year, although so much has changed for the better.

overall, i'm so freaking happy that summer is almost over and that all the wonderful autumness is upon us once again.

I love Michaels, but it sounds like craziness to work there, especially in the holiday season...so much little STUFF everywhere, go-backs must be a bitch!

thankfully, as i always worked at butt-thirty in the morning and would leave around 2 or 3 hours after we would open, i never had to deal with them, weee!

actually i spent so much wonderful time with the beautiful aubs quite recently , with her hands particularly included ...

her hands are so lovely my own fingerhand posture has changed today unintentionally and seemingly irreversibly to be moving more like hers.

i always thought my handposture was dorky anyway,

changes can be very good.
