i love my job

i love my new job. i really really do.

firstly, it is less work for more money. that is always a good thing.
secondly, everyone there is SO nice. not a mean one in the bunch. really.
thirdly, the days FLY by. unlike retail where time inches on S.L..O...W....L.....Y.
fourthly, i found a pair of shoes that are halfway decent (meaning i don't want to cut my feet off by the end of the day).
fifthly, did i mention that it pays more than all my previous jobs?
sixthly, i dont' even think these are real words.

ugh, it's time for bed. i'm still not used to this going to bed early thing. whatevs, it must be done! eventually i want to be up early enough to make my lunch in the morning. right now i barely have time for breakfast. hee.

i want an ipod SO BAD i can taste it.


so this is where i beg with no shame.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me get my ipod.... go here and sign up. use a yahoo e-mail or something, and sign up for AOL or Ebay or anything you want, then cancel it. but remember! you have to complete one of the offers or it won't work!

i only need 4 people to do this. only 4!

it's not a scam. it worked for this guy. and if you want more info you can go here (he has a way to sign up for ebay with no creditcard needed, too! cool!).

once you sign up, run with it! send the link to your friends, and get an ipod of your own! plus they just added the brand new 20 gig ipod!

if you help me get my ipod, i'll help you get one too... i'll post your link on my IM and on my site!

good day, bad shoes.

my new pants are too long (aah the perils of being 5'2) so i wore my boots with the small heels.


oh, the pain. the horrible excruciating pain! note to self: get new shoes. either that or hem pants.

job is great, people are nice, drug tests are demeaning, brown hair is better (on me, at least), and getting up at 6:30 is not as hard as i thought it would be!

no problems going to sleep tonight, though. i'm so beat! zzzzzzzz....

endings and beginnings

well, today was the last day of the crappy retail job, and tomorrow starts the new, full time, better paying job!

i am very excited.

i think i will have the hardest time adjusting to the hours. like, i was going to go to bed half an hour ago. gaaah! what can i do? i'm used to going to bed at 1am. this is SO early. i think i'll have to just be a little sleepy for a few days.

I went clothes shopping on friday. i bought TONS of new cute stuff. i get to wear an all-new outfit tomorrow! like, new EVERYTHING. black pants, flowered tank, purple button down shirt. and new shoes too. it's cuteness.

cyndi lauper was AWESOME. no other words for that.

oh, and i'm a brunette again. the brown roots with the red-blonde hair was getting to me. i just can't pull off the whole roots thing. i did it one shade too dark (i was trying to match my natural color) but it still looks good. i think i've come to terms with the fact that i'm not a redhead. *sob*.

GOD, i don't feel like going to sleep yet, but i don't want to be a zombie tomorrow. i think i'll just lie in bed with the lights off an listen to loveline. hee hee!

and i'll give you (all 5 or 6 of you, heh) the deets on the job tomorrow. ;-)

one more life mission, fulfilled

my two favorite singers when i was a kid were madonna and cyndi lauper. this is in, like '86 when they were both huuuuuge. i loved them both and i always said that i wanted to see them in concert.

in 2001, debbie and i got to see madonna in concert in oakland. it was totally last minute, but our seats ended up beig *great*. it was a fantastic show.

and tonight, i'm going to see cyndi lauper in saratoga with my mom and my sister!! i am so excited... i can check something off my 'before i die' list!

the really cool thing is that the place we're going tonight is one of the best places to see a concert... small, outdoors, great acoustics... and since i've always thought that cyndi was a far better singer than madonna, it's perfect. i don't even care if she does 'girls just wanna have fun' ... i really want to hear 'time after time', or 'all through the night', or 'when you were mine' - 3 of my fave cyndi songs ever. ;-)

it's not right

WHETHER OR NOT you beleive that gay marirage is 'right' or 'ok', you should really go here to sign petition to STOP the amendment that bans gay marriage.

because REGARDLESS of what you beleive is 'right' or 'wrong', we cannot allow our government to pass a constiutional amendment that would TAKE AWAY someone's rights. this is NO WORSE than not allowing women or black people to vote. THIS IS BAD, BAD NEWS, PEOPLE!

"Everyone has the same rights. There is no place in America for a Constitutional amendment denying marriage equality to anyone."

SIGN THE PETITION. your elected officials DO see/read these things. it DOES make a difference.

i'm a hippie... big shocker there

i've seen this quiz everywhere today. i usually don't see memes until they're played out, so i'm gonna jump on this one.

Wackiness: 30/100

Rationality: 36/100

Constructiveness: 68/100

Leadership: 44/100

You are an SECF--Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a hippie. You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments. Once you've made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise. Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste.

You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted. You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don't get mad, you get even.

Please don't get even with this web site.

this is eerily accurate. creepy, actually.

i also took the 'better person quiz... here's what i got.

Your score as a human being is 90.25.

You are a pleasure to be with and a pleasure to be. Your friends do not envy so much as admire you, and you lead your life with grace, honor, and dignity. This site is humbled to have you take a test on it.

Which brings one to wonder, what are you doing goofing off on the Internet?

and i didn't even lie on the quiz! honest! :-)

long time listener, first time caller!

DUDE, tonight i was on loveline.


i've been listeneing to loveline for years, so i was so totally excited to get through. i called with a germany or florida story, and was on the air within 10 minutes of getting through. if you listen to loveline on the east coast, or somewhere where they delay it for a day, you can listen tomorrow around 10:30, and you'll hear me!

germany or florida is a game they play on loveline based on the theory that all truly freaky news stories happen in either germany or florida. here's my story. do you have a guess?


A get-rich-quick scheme backfired on a couple when a man put his girlfriend's daughter up for auction on eBay. He posted a picture of a girl along a description saying "you can play with her," a line adding a level of creepiness excessive even for a child-selling situation. A concerned eBay user saw the auction, presumably while in the market for "little girls", and contacted local police. The auction was shut down after a few hours as the policies of eBay forbid the selling of children or children parts.
