Ay que la chingada. I've lost my spool and I both really need it and can't be spending any more money to replace it. If the puppy got it off the table where I last saw it, it's as good as gone.

I like Frosty because it reminds me of what a very, very cute child I was. "With a corncob pipe and a butt and a nose..."

Watching Angel reminded me of my second favorite childhood lyric misunderstanding -- we had a record that played Anne Murray singing children's songs, including "Teddy Bear Picnic." The line is supposed to be, "See them, catch them unawares." However, 4-year old me had never heard this word, "unawares" before and would happily run around singing, "See them, catch them underwears!"

However, I hate Burl Ives' rendition of "Holly Jolly Christmas." Mainly because I once drove in a moving van with my father from North Carolina to Texas right before Christmas, and he insisted on letting the song play through every time we ran across it. Which was a lot.

I was search a patient after he came up to the floor, and when I unfolded the papers he had in his pocket, I GOT COCAINE ALL OVER ME. f*** triage and the piss-poor job they always do of removing contraband from the new admissions.

I absolutely hate that I have to work tomorrow. I also hate that the roads are so bad I have to have my dad take me and pick me up because he has a truck.

Thanks. I've never had to be away/work on Thanksgiving morning. I actually really love getting up super early to help with everything. I know it shouldn't bug me that much, but i'm really, really bummed out about this.

How seriously I take rom-coms and how much of what I see around me I consider to be a possible sign of what to do, what will happen, how I should act.

The movies are bullshit. Real life doesn't work that way and for the thousandth time, those things, on even a more realistic level, will never happen for me. They'll happen to everyone around me, and that's exactly what's happening, but to me? No way.

I have to say, I want that movie to be a sign and I hate that about myself because I know it's not.

I am absolutely loathing the pseudo-festive commercialism this year. I know it's like this every year, but it's bugging me especially bad this year. "Save money this season, buy a car" makes no sense. "You're a disappointing parent if you don't get your kids this" infuriates me. And it's everywhere. AUGH.

Guilt trips from my mother about moving out, a whole year and some change before I actually do it. I haven't told her it's going to be out of state yet because I anticipate it'll only get worse when she learns that.



My grandmother is coming to visit for possibly two weeks, starting Sunday. Every time she's here, I get to be told that there's nothing wrong with me but hey, here are all the things that are wrong with me. Even better, she's telling these things to my mom while they both think I'm asleep in my room and can't hear. She doesn't act this way in San Diego, so what the hell makes her think it's okay to be this way in AZ?

AIM. Why do I use that, again?

It booted me and wouldn't let me back in on AIM itself, Meebo, Gmail, or my phone. I'm pretty sure I lost some messages in there and after the day I've had, well, not getting to see him say goodnight to me was enough to make me cry (since I didn't get to earlier like I wanted). I'm going to go to bed now and tomorrow will be a better day.

I hate that my head hurts so bad I think my right eye might be trying to escape from my head. Also, my neck is really stiff and sore. I could also potentially be running a fever... but my people thermometer is at home and I am not desperate enough to pull my animal thermometer out of my bag.

When someone leaves me a voicemail basically saying "call me back". Yes, the phone told me that I missed a call from you! Do you think if you don't leave a message, that I'm just going to ignore it?

No one calls me these days but if they did and they didn't leave a message saying to call them back, chances are about 70-30 I wouldn't call them back. For all I know, they butt-dialed me (happens all the time since I'm usually at the top of people's contacts) or didn't leave a message because they don't consider whatever reason they called important enough to warrant a return call. There's also the possibility that it was time-sensitive and it'd be pointless to return the call later.

Of course, they could just tell me whatever in the message itself and save me the trouble of calling them back either way.


None of that applies if I like speaking to the person who called but that is a very small set of people.

I, on the other hand, rarely leave a message if it's someone who I call on a regular basis. I figure that they will go with Zero's thought process. Also, I'm too lazy to wait and leave a message.

Feeling alone. That's not the same as being alone, which I also am but that's coincidental.

Criticism of my driving. I'm not talking about safety stuff, which is more important and all. More like "why didn't you take that other route" or "you don't need the wipers on steady, intermittenet would do", or "you can do a U-turn here, why are we going around the long way?" or similar. I'm the driver, I'll drive the way that I feel most comfortable.

Computers. I don't care if I'm using one right now to say that, I hate computers.


One day, about a month ago, my CD/DVD drive stopped working. I'd insert a CD/DVD and it would spit it back out, telling me I needed to insert a disc. If I go to My Computer and double click on the E: drive or right click and Open, same deal; Insert a Disc.

I went into the Device Manager and it says "This device is working properly." Like hell it is. It (Microsoft Fix It or some such dealie) is suggesting my media is not readable. Really? Because I know for a fact that one disc in particular was considered readable by that drive a month ago. It was the last one I used before the damn thing stopped reading anything.

I've tried both DVDs, all region 1s, all work on my DVD player in the living room, and data discs with the same outcome.


*stabs technology* I never realized how annoying it was to not have that drive work until it stopped working.

Well, it was a nice run with Digsby, I quite like the interface. But three minutes of a new conversation window with the latest update, and I'm ready to stab something. Thanks for forcing flash ads in my conversation window, Digsby, I was totally happy and not at all thinking of returning to Pidgin.

EDIT: Scratch that, finally found the "OFF" option. Thank you, Digsby, I retract the above. For the record, though, I would find ads in my buddy list window FAR less intrusive, since I'm not constantly switching back to it and staring at it.

The millions of f***ing laws and regulations applying to secured transactions. I don't care about rules related to financing statements, attachment, perfection, priorities, lienholders, redemption, foreclosure, proceeds of proceeds, fixture filings, bankruptcy reorganization, comingled goods and crops, or the interstate movement of goods. Or, most importantly, the millions of other related rules that I don't know or can't remember.

A thread snagged and broke on my brand new shawl. It's pretty much unfixable, and the shawl is still gorgeous, so I'll continue to wear it, but I'm so mad! I haven't even had it a week yet!
you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant
