nothing overly interesting to report, really.

i did more research as to what i need to do to get my financial aid approved, and the form i need to print out from the website, now that i have ink for my printer, is currently unavailable online. *shoots self in head* soooooo, i need to go down there anyway, aaaaand i want to get my math books before the used versions of them are gone, so i was all ready to race down there on the bus system today...

and then i came to my senses and realized that for the next three days, i have four hours between shifts, with nothing to do, so that would be theeeee opportune time to go do it, instead of today, which is my only afternoon to accomplish things at HOME.

so why do i feel a massive burning pull to play everquest? grrr. evil evil stuff, it is.

i also have my new dvd burner in my lap, and am preparing to shut down my computer completely to try to do the nerdy girl thing and install it myself. i always love figuring this stuff out. that is, until something goes awry, and then i have no patience at ALL to do anything other than stand here and flap my arms like a landed duck and proclaim myself incompetent and howl for assistance from my even nerdier friends.

the snow is all gone, as it warmed up and rained in the night. boo, hiss. my brother and i did walk up to the store to get something to eat, and rather enjoyed how peaceful, pretty, and quiet it was out yonder that way *points*. (bacci tries to eat my jingle bell antlers i am wearing) we ooh'ed and aaah'ed as a car here and there would be trucking along quite fine, thankyouverymuch, and then suddenly have its ass end try to beat the nose end in speed, causing all sorts of nifty automobile ballet.

i so don't want to work this week. i'm freaking sick of working two jobs. good thing i only have two weeks of it left. i had turned in my two week notice at michaels on saturday. i had expected.. i don't know what i had really expected, maybe a 'aww, sorry to see you go!' or possibly a 'well, thank you, we enjoyed having you back!' but instead, i got a "ooh, perfect timing!"... um... que?

as i have probably stated a lot lately, i am becoming addicted to my friends, the close circle of friends that i have hung out with almost exclusively for the last couple of weeks. it's now been a week since i have seen them, and i am jonesin' something fierce. i'm trying to assure myself that i shall see them all on friday for andrea's photoshooty birthday party. right? RIGHT? tell me you'll be there, with cameras on. i'll bring my antlers and my hair gel.

i am very pleased to see that at least ONE of my communities, nickel_creek, is going splendidly. until this one, i don't think i was ever able to get one that had more than 30 members. and in the event of already whoring myself out, i shall point out dreamers_online for dreams and interpretations, and paste_and_plato for all that is Jellyfish.

last night as i was headed up to bed, i peeked out the front door again to see the peaceful snow fallen outdoorsy thing again.... at which point bacci DID bolt outside and around the corner into the bushes. GAAH! so 2 am found me outside in my pajamas in flip flops, trudging through the snow, my language going from coo'ing at bacci lovingly, to calling her all sorts of evil names. i finally shoo'ed her back inside, the jerk.

you know that the magic of the holiday season has officially been leached out of you when you look forward to Christmas as not a time to spend with loved ones and trade gifts, but a chance to get two freaking days off in a ROW.

Wow, already time to quit having both jobs! Now that you are almost done, was it worth it?

actually, in retrospect, i think it really was. it made my time going back to school not seem quite as bad, methinks. i was overhearing someone talking in my pscyhology class about how they weren't prepared to not have any free time before coming back to school, and i already dealt with that! by the time i made it back to school, i had actually almost felt like i was on vacation, instead ;)

I do the exact same thing when I install something. I feel all 'self sufficient' "Look at me installing my own _____" then something goes wrong and I cry and bemoan how stupid I am :-P

Sadly, I think I am also more excited about having days off than anything else. What else do us working folk have to look forward too!

We got a few good snowfalls here and I was excited for a white christmas, we haven't had snow in december in a few years....but alas a few days ago the rain came and it's almost gone now, and it's not supposed to snow again before christmas. pooh on that.

Installing IDE Devices isn't that bad :) all you have to do is... contact me if something goes wrong :D Have fun figuring it out.

You know you've got somethin there about the two days off thing. When I was younger I rmember my family getting much more time off when it came to this time of year, late shopping was geting it doen like two weeks before instead of me till this day still not sure what I'm getting people and who I'm getting it for or even a single card returned to people! I remember weeks off to get out of the rush of work and into the mood of the season, now all i see is stressed out people trying to spend money to say "I think you're special"

... not good!

i totally agree. i think there was only once before my adulthood that i went shopping on Christmas eve. and all of this reminds me that the season is almost back upon us, so we get to start having all the stressed out crankies.

Eeeeyep, I've already converted my budget for holiday shopping but things are getting in the way of that I'd tell you but I don't wantt o leave it here. I think I'm going to try and do all my shopping online this year, as much as I can. I've got about two are three things piceked out for people already, its just the... stuff thats getting in the way and me not being sure exactly how much I'm going to spend.
