I meant to do this a few days ago, but then I didn't feel like blogging. <.g> So, after several days, it's time to find out which is false. Believe it or not, it's #8 - I do not like going to the library and checking out books. I have absolutely nothing against the library. But I have this thing about returning things I borrow - I don't. <.g> I like to own things in case I ever want to read or see it again. Which means my friends have learned that if they lend me things, they either shouldn't expect it back, or should be ready to come over and grab it for themselves. LOL
So, yes, that does mean my mother thinks I'm a pregnant lesbian. I am neither, despite my big crush on Gilly. <.g> Every time I skip my period (currently more than two weeks late), she gets this idea I'm pregnant, and the lesbian thing comes from my lack of boyfriend, and the fact that I like Willow/Tara. Oh, and I watched Xena last weekend. <.g> I first started talking to Krissy when she volunteered to send me a Jax/Sonny story she found, and then she continued to send me stories from the Jax NC-17 list that I was too young for. LOL The bossiness and movie business went hand-in-hand; I wrote adventure stories about my swingset and forced Jon, Dave, Erin and Gabija to act them out. You know, having to cross the jungle-swingset from one side to another because the grass was quicksand, and things like that. <.g> Bossiness gave way to shyness and quiet control freakiness when we moved to WS in 1991 and I didn't know anyone, but really, I was quite the Hermione Granger. I think I'd like to be again.
Oh, and the batting story - I played baseball in 3rd and 4th grade, and then softball through 8th. It was the summer between 6th and 7th, I think. Went up to bat, strike one. Strike two. Next one came, I smashed it out of there and ran. When I arrived safe on second, the adrenaline wore off and I realized I was in a great deal of pain. <.g> Called over the 3rd base coach, went to the hospital. They lasered a little hole in my nail (middle finger on my right hand) and blood fountained up. Splitnered the finger and nail, which fell off a few months later. That's how I can tell which finger now - the nail is a different shape! So is the pad of my finger as a result.
So, that's me. Thanks for playing! <.g>
First, let me just say that I'm laughing so hard watching WW with J - she knows all the characters because of the fic I've quoted to her! LOL This is so fun.
What's not fun is the fight me and mom had. I bitched one time too many about my job at the clinic. I found out today I'm starting Monday - filing in the attic full time. Let's consider that one, I'm dangerously allergic to dust, and two, it's an open attic. Let's welcome in my fear of heights/jumping/falling! Plus, I work 9 to 4:30, but I commute on the train. The train that gets me there at 8:13am and leaves at 5:12pm. So I'm really not happy at all. Mom started yelling that I didn't do anything to change it, and she is right. I didn't. What I tried to tell her was that I didn't because I was stuck with the morning job and I didn't want to disappoint her or them by turning it down, and there was no other job I could get only in the afternoons. I was doomed before I started, basically. I didn't see a way out. Led to a whole bunch of totally miserable things, during which I found out that when dad took out the CD for next year's tuition early, he put the money in his account and not mine. And then spent it.
I have no tuition money for next year.
I swear, I was sick to my stomach. I am sick. I don't know what I'm going to do. He fucking spent almost $10,000 since April. If we open senior year's CD to pay, then I don't have money for senior year. But I have a year to earn $10,000 then. But my schedule for fall sucks for job hours! I don't know where I'm going to fit in a job, but I have to.
I'm just feeling so awful now. I'm stuck in a job that will make me miserable, made mom upset, have no money, feel like a complete and total failure, and am just sick. Life sucks.
J updated...a lot!! I'm so happy, I could cry - I've gotten her hooked on Josh and Donna, and she hasn't even seen them yet! LOLOL We will definitely be watching as much as possible together this summer. <.g> I love your new colors, J, and I'm so glad you're mom is doing well. The afghan is absolutely gorgeous, too...
J is hooked on GH! Yes, honey, I am very proud. ::wipes tear::
Nick Brendon is so cute. LOL Kinda cool that In Style is doing a photo shoot at his wedding - I think I'd like to see it, since he obviously is okay with that. <.g> I wish I had FX - Buffy reruns starts Sept. 24.
Oh, congratulations, Bonnie!! I'm sure you and Claire are going to be very happy. : )
Meanwhile, since when is Anne of Green Gables a six book series? Going through Anne of Ingleside is NOT a full set, PBS lady. I know Rainbow Valley and Rilla of Ingleside are more about the children, but they're still a part of the Anne series.
Hey, wow, Sherry Stringfield is coming back to ER! I loved Susan, but it sucks because Mark is married to Lizzie now.
Dani is trying to help me with my stories now. She's being more encouraging that helpful, but I'll take what I can get. <.g>
Hey, David's on Rosie today! Found that out quite by accident. <.g> Oooh, and Dad bought me "Bring it On" last night - it was on sale at Blockbuster. I can't wait to watch it! But not tonight - Anne of Green Gables is on my PBS station. I love those movies.
On Sunday, we went to go see Shrek for mom's birthday. It was okay - my parents liked it a lot more than I did. The humor was more up my dad's alley than mine, but some scenes were just hysterical (like the very last one!). I think Mike Myers could have stayed in his accent much better, too. But the animation was so breathtaking - there was always stuff to look at. I think I would see it again.
Following in the grand tradition of Amy and Kristine, among others, we're gonna play a little game. <.g> Of these ten statements, one is not like the others. Meaning nine are true and one is false. Can you guess which one? Leave your guess under "Words from you." : )
1. My first concert was the Backstreet Boys.
2. My mother thinks I'm a pregnant lesbian.
3. In my greatest inning, I hit a double off of my middle finger.
4. I got hooked on slash and NC-17 stories because of Kristine.
5. I spent my childhood writing and directing adventure movies starring my best friends.
6. I've been hugged by Wally Kurth (Ned Ashton on GH).
7. I have a crush on Gillian Anderson.
8. I love to go to the library to check out books.
9. I was a bossy, take-charge type of child.
10. I learned cursive writing in first grade, and spent recesses teaching it to classmates.
I do not want to be awake. I do not want to be awake, Sam I am. Not in the morning and certainly not before eight.
So it doesn't rhyme. Or make sense, really. TOUGH. I'm exhausted. I want to be asleep. I don't even have to be awake! Today is Josh's IEP meeting, at 8. Mom and Dad were going to go, obviously. So I woke up at 6 freaking 40 in the morning to get ready to babysit. I get out of the shower at 7:20, and they're all, "Oh, hey, guess you didn't have to be up anyway." Josh is feeling off, so dad stayed home. I WANT to go back to bed, but he's like, "Oh, yay, I get company." Uh-huh. I hied me off to my computer kinda fast. I guess it's fun to watch both ERs (and the end of Lois and Clark) but it would be SO much more fun to sleep!
Okay, trying a new comments system. It's about all I can do on a free server with no PHP. <.g>
