My family should never go out in public. We also shouldn't be allowed to associate with people from the outside world.

The setting was sitting around after dinner with my parents, my sister, her guy, his parents, and his mother's siblings. My sister was saying that they don't often buy toys for her son, it's the fact that he has 4 grandparents who only have one grandchild to spoil, and no other prospects. My mother decides the best possible response to that statement was to say "Oh, we have another one in may coming" and looking expectantly at me. I start laughing since I know my mother, but my dad looks like he's about to have a heart attack and tom's family looks like they've eaten something I've cooked.

It isn't thanksgiving until everyone's been made fun of. Mostly Tom.

Someone told me today they looked up to me because of how comfortable I am with myself. I guess I really have changed.

I like the new me. Except the part that still stays up past 6am.

Well, I finally got my computer back, after a month without. It's strange how my computing habits have changed in that time. I can't stand to be on AIM for more than 30 seconds unless I'm talking to someone, and after checking mail and livejournal, I'm out of ideas on what to occupy myself with. This leaves more time open for reading.

In my science fiction literature class, we were assigned the book Science Fiction Hall of Fame and I realized that when you actually have a compilation of the best pieces of a genre, they don't suck so much. I just got sick of science fiction that didn't follow its own rules or used a science with no explanation as to how it functioned, or just had crappy writing styles. I'm picky about my writing styles, I hate people who use too many words.

I'm also applying for another job, which would bring me to a total of two while a full time student. I hate taking early classes more than anything, but on two days I get out of class at 7:20, and on another day, I get out at 10:30, so that severely limits how much I can work a week, but currently I'm only working 7 hours a week and that just isn't good.

I want to go skiing this year. If it gets cold again, will anyone go with me? I'll crochet you a scarf if you do!

Wow, the most drama I've seen on livejournal EVER has to be the crochet community. Seriously, it's about yarn, how can people cause that many issues? I guess with all the bored housewives, they need something to do and didn't feel like turning to alcohol.

I told you people (err, Delora) that I would post my wishlist on my livejournal because I know just how hard I am to shop for, although whoever compared me to Tom needs an asskicking.

Anyway, I've had a problem thinking of ideas because I really don't want anything, I'm pretty happy with my life.

What I want most is to get Nick to stop smoking. It's nasty, really annoying, and the smell of him makes me sick.

I wanted to try the game Black and White 2 for PC for a while now, but it's really expensive ($45) so I tried to download it, but it wouldn't load right. It apparently doesn't have good replay value so I don't want anyone to drop down the money for it, but if someone wants to somehow get a copy to work on my computer, that'd count as far as I care. Unfortunately, my hard drive died, so this isn't an option. Glad to be a waste of time!

I would like a new pair of pants. Preferably walmart or target, but only having 3 pairs of pants that fit badly just isn't cutting it for me.

I'd maybe like some seat covers for my car, but I'll wait until I'm on a computer that can open two web pages at a time to figure out styles.

I told Delora I like homemade soap from millersoap.com, but check with her if you're going to consider this because I don't want a years supply. Also, ask me for certain flavors, cause I'm picky like that.

If people like to be boring and impersonal, there's always gift cards, I guess the best place would be AC Moore since they have a pretty good selection, but Michaels is alot closer to me, so if that's the store you can get a card for, I'd be just as happy. Don't get one for Joanne Fabrics, that store sucks. Also, Amazon is an option (do they even have gift cards? I'm sure they do.)

I'm apparently past all the flashy angsty things that I was into during highschool, so if you think I would have liked it a year or two ago, that's probably changed.

I know there are more things I had thought of, but I can't remember them now, and I can't play the browsing game. I'll update this eventually.

I love that feeling when you rediscover a band that you used to listen to constantly but haven't heard in years. I randomly started listening to Orgy which I probably haven't heard since junior/senior year of highschool, and I just had this wave of pleasure and happiness sweep over me.

Too bad that was last night. Tonight I'm full of insomnia.

Wow, it's been way too long since I last posted. Sorry guys!
Not much to say though. Trying to get Deloras job, but I never get to talk to her so I don't know how that's going. I cut down my hours at hollywood (yes, I still work there) because I want to quit but there's nobody that can replace me, so I'm staying on one day a week until they hire someone else. Luckily this gives me a lot more free time, I currently have class for 3 days a week and work for another three, but now that I'm no longer working weekends I have time for things like sleep, homework, and grocery shopping. I miss groceries, I remember back in the golden era of summer when I had time to go grocery shopping and would be surrounded by little luxuries like good tasting toothpaste and yogurt. Anyway, I got this sunday off so I can study enough to pass statistics. Hopefully. Next week's going to suck though, I have to give up my car for about 5 days to get it repaired. A month or two ago I was peacefully driving along and this stupid bitch makes a left hand turn and cuts me off, so I have this pretty little caved in panel that needs to be replaced. Anyone in my area (especially around route 50) knows how bad the drivers can be, it's kind of impressive. I miss falls church where everything was too slow and small for people to suck so badly. I can’t wait until Jenna’s party in two weeks, I’m so very looking forward to it. I’m going to miss Nick though, it’ll be the 2nd day I’ll go without seeing him since we started going out. I remember why I don’t update anymore. It may be partially from lack of free time and never being home, but it’s also really dull and annoying. Still, I might do it again some time.

Here's a meme I've gotten from my friend Andrew:

I know very little about some of the people on my Friends list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you Friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say, "Ah, there's so and so - she likes office supplies and hentai."

I'd love it if every single person who Friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal(s).
