-Revolution, by the Beatles.
Whoops. I unintentionally used Beatles songs two entries in a row. I’m not going through a Beatles phase, that’s a coincidence. 😉
Anyway, I thought since it’s been a little bit that I should give you all an update. Not that you care, but I’m bored and need to wind down after work.
As usual, not a whole lot goes on on days where I don’t have to work. I’ve recently gotten on a bit of a Sims 2: Pets kick again. Not that you care, but all the members of Queen have sim counterparts and I’m trying to age them all to Elder. So far I’ve got Freddie and Brian to elder (and some of their kids that live on a different lot to Adult), I still need to age Roger and John, and my sim John has like six kids so that’ll be fun)… If I recolored the hair I’ve got on Brian I could make a Roger Daltrey sim.. xD I haven’t made any Who sims with the exception of Keith. xD
I believe I also have Joe and Viv from Def Leppard, but I’m not sure how I’ll make Rick because there is no known mesh or anything that can make sims magically not have a limb. I’d settle for an outfit that masked an arm (I have a mermaid tail that hides the feet so maybe the same sort of effect could be utilized for other body parts).
Anyway, my fanatic Sims 2:Pets rambling aside. Tuesday at work was surprisingly busy, considering it was only Tuesday. One of the servers was bored so she helped me get caught up. Not that I thought I was all that behind, but hey, I wasn’t going to complain about getting extra help. I did tell her I owed her one, though. Anyhoo. On Wednesday I did a tiny bit of shopping. I got a sketch book, except for wet media like paint, a pack of these cheap assorted paint brushes, and some turquoise ribbon from Hobby Lobby. Now, I’m going to be really pissed if Jarrod doesn’t come up with a time and place for the Halloween party because my costume is going to be epic [I got the turquoise ribbon to braid into my hair]. If none of my friends are having a Halloween party, I’ll just spend Halloween at the Colony Inn, after I work. Anyhoo. I also went to Target, where I got some new socks (as I badly needed some), and something else that I don’t remember what it was. xP Lastly I went to Wal-Mart where I got an under the bed rubbermaid type container to store some of my stemware glasses in, and I got another box of magenta hair dye. I’m planning an epic hair do, dunno when I’ll get to do it though. See, what I’m doing it, I’ll keep my bangs blonde, dye the rest of my hair burgandy, but the magenta’s going to be on the underside at the bottom of my hair. Like those blonde girls that have black hair underneath. Sorta like that, only with magenta, and since my magenta dye shows up pretty well on dark hair I won’t have to dye the underside of my hair blonde. The color might not be quite as vibrant as when I dye my blonde bangs, but I’m not exactly going for electric pink this time either. xD
Today was a bit strange. My dad requested that I not get on the old computer (the one with Sims2:Pets) in case he wanted to check his email, but he ended up sleeping for hours, when I could have been on. xD Oh well. In other news, my mother has been completely bitchy this week. I thought she’d had her time of the month this month already but apparently not. On Monday, I believe it was, she and my dad got into a huge arguement at like 6:30 am. If I hadn’t already been awake from my mother yelling up the stairs for my brother to get up, the argument would have been my alarm clock. I believe the parents were shouting at each other on Tuesday morning, as well. I believe that’s what woke me that day. And I haven’t been sleeping all that well anyway. And today, I packaged the recyclables like mom asked, but I accidentally left the roll of recyclable bags on the porch, and when mother got home she launched into, Why did I do everything half assed, why couldn’t I just do a good job, blah blah blah. I probably forgot the bags on the porch because I had dishes soaking and didn’t want to forget they were there, so I went to finish the dishes straight after I was done with the recyclables. It’s not that I half assed it.
It’s little things like that that piss me off about my mother, and this week she’s always had to have something to bitch about. I mean, I get moody on my period but I don’t think I’m consistantly that grumpy all the time. I don’t know what her problem is, but it’s starting to make me crazy, and it’s starting to get on Dad’s nerves, which are short enough as it is. I don’t think a day has gone by this week that they haven’t yelled at each other, and several times my mom has said something like I should just move out, which I don’t think she will, but if she’s going to keep being this bitchy, I don’t know….
It seems nothing’s ever good enough for my mother. She asks me to clean the bathroom, so I clean it, only to hear how I didn’t do it right, ‘that’s not what you do’. Well, I’ve cleaned the bathroom several times, and I hear the same thing, and also mentioned maybe mother should tell me how she wants it done, only to have her say “I should just know how” which is also like telling a kid with autism that they “should just act normal, they should just know how”. Mother’s got an excuse for that too. ‘Well those people have mental disorders’. Does she think I’m %100 sane? I certainly hope not, because I know I’ve got issues, and with all these years of me being really forgetful, I don’t see why it’s a surprise. And honestly, I don’t try to forget things and get yelled at. But yeah. Mom’s just pissing me off this week. And she’s been really mood swingy.
Now I know during that time of the month you get mood swings, but is it normal to be shouting mad at someone, and not thirty seconds later, be joking and laughing about something? My house is going insane. I don’t know.
Anyway. Tonight at work was decent as days go, although it was yet another day that I failed to sound intelligent to the guy I’ve got a crush on. The part of my brain controlling my mouth seems to malfunction when I’m around him.
Although we did briefly talk about music. Pour Some Sugar On Me was on the radio and he said something about “he’s not sure how he’d feel about a guy saying he was sticky and sweet”, which of course I laughed like a hyena at, even though it wasn’t that hilarious. And some fucking song by the Beastie Boys came on, and he’s like, ‘since when were the Beastie Boys fucking classic rock?’.. Stuff like that.
If it weren’t for the radio we probably wouldn’t talk at all. xD
Anyway. I’m not looking forward to work tomorrow night, as it’s Friday and that means that teenage hyperactive annoyance will be working with me. I didn’t turn on the radio at all last Friday or Saturday because I didn’t want to get into the radio knob wars with him, but I’m turning the radio on tomorrow and if he tries to bitch I’ll set him straight. I’ve got seniority over him. Dunno if I’ve worked there longer, but I’m older and I’ve washed dishes at four different restaurants. Those and the fact that he’s fourteen goddam years old obviously gives me the seniority.
I don’t want it to sound like I’ve got supreme reign of the radio, I just put it on the classic rock station and nobody’s told me they want it changed so I just keep on keeping on.
Well, I don’t really have much else to say. I’ll probably run off to myspace to fill out a survey or two, then I’ll go to bed. If work turns out to be amazing and interesting I’ll write tomorrow but more than likely it’ll be late Saturday night before you hear from me again, at the earliest.
