A splendid time is guaranteed for all

Have you ever played a CD that you hadn't listened to in years, only to realize that you still knew every single word of that album, start to finish, by heart?

There's this was released 42 years ago this coming June, which makes it older than I am. I was completely obsessed with it in my late teens. I had it on cassette then.

I finally bought it on CD about 10 years ago, obsessed on it again for a while, then put it away.

Today, for some reason, I felt like listening to it.

I put it in my CD player in my car and listened to the first half of it on the way to work. I listened to the last half of it on my way home.

I still know every. Single. Word.

What an amazing album! What a great band!

Happy birthday Jay!

Merry Christmas Blogland!

So far I have gotten:

$25 Starbucks card


Mini bottles of lotion from Bath & Body Works in Japanese Cherry Blossom, Warm Vanilla Sugar, and Velvet Tuberose.

2009 Witch's Calender


Skin care products

I'll be getting at least one other thing later when my mom's friend Sherry comes over for dinner.

My contribution to dinner tonight is dessert.

Coffee Fluff


2-1/4 cups cold milk
1 tbs. instant coffee
1 pkg. (6 serving size) Jello Instant vanilla pudding
1 pkg. Dream Whip whipped topping mix
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Cool Whip Extra Creamy whipped topping

Dissolve coffee in milk in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add dry pudding mix, dry whipped topping mix and cinnamon. Mix with electric mixer, starting on low, gradually increasing speed until mixture forms soft peaks (3-5 minutes).

Let set in refrigerator 1 hour (or overnight) to set.

The original recipe (found in the Jello Cookbook) calls to serve it in dessert glasses as-is.

The way I do it is: spoon 2 tbs. of mixture in dessert glass. Layer 2 tbs. of Cool Whip on top of that, then 2 more tbs. of the mixture, topped with another dollop of Cool Whip.

Yule (Winter Solstice)

Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, much celebration was to be had as the ancestors awaited the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth and made her to bear forth from seeds protected through the fall and winter in her womb. Bonfires were lit in the fields, and crops and trees were "wassailed" with toasts of spiced cider.

Children were escorted from house to house with gifts of clove spiked apples and oranges which were laid in baskets of evergreen boughs and wheat stalks dusted with flour. The apples and oranges represented the sun, the boughs were symbolic of immortality, the wheat stalks portrayed the harvest, and the flour was accomplishment of triumph, light, and life. Holly, mistletoe, and ivy not only decorated the outside, but also the inside of homes. It was to extend invitation to Nature Sprites to come and join the celebration. A sprig of Holly was kept near the door all year long as a constant invitation for good fortune to pay visit to the residents.

The ceremonial Yule log was the highlight of the festival. In accordance to tradition, the log must either have been harvested from the householder's land, or given as a gift... it must never have been bought. Once dragged into the house and placed in the fireplace it was decorated in seasonal greenery, doused with cider or ale, and dusted with flour before set ablaze be a piece of last years log, (held onto for just this purpose). The log would burn throughout the night, then smolder for 12 days after before being ceremonially put out. Ash is the traditional wood of the Yule log. It is the sacred world tree of the Teutons, known as Yggdrasil. An herb of the Sun, Ash brings light into the hearth at the Solstice.

A different type of Yule log, and perhaps one more suitable for modern practitioners would be the type that is used as a base to hold three candles. Find a smaller branch of oak or pine, and flatten one side so it sets upright. Drill three holes in the top side to hold red, green, and white (season), green, gold, and black (the Sun God), or white, red, and black (the Great Goddess). Continue to decorate with greenery, red and gold bows, rosebuds, cloves, and dust with flour.

Deities of Yule are all Newborn Gods, Sun Gods, Mother Goddesses, and Triple Goddesses. The best known would be the Dagda, and Brighid, the daughter of the Dagda. Brighid taught the smiths the arts of fire tending and the secrets of metal work. Brighid's flame, like the flame of the new light, pierces the darkness of the spirit and mind, while the Dagda's cauldron assures that Nature will always provide for all the children.

Symbolism of Yule:
Rebirth of the Sun, The longest night of the year, The Winter Solstice, Introspect, Planning for the Future.

Symbols of Yule:
Yule log, or small Yule log with 3 candles, evergreen boughs or wreaths, holly, mistletoe hung in doorways, gold pillar candles, baskets of clove studded fruit, a simmering pot of wassail, poinsettias, christmas cactus.

R.I.P. Caylee

Skeletal remains found near the home of missing child Caylee Anthony are those of the little girl and her cause of death is homicide, the medical examiner said Friday.

"With regret, I'm here to inform you that the skeletal remains are those of the missing toddler," said Dr. Jan Garavaglia.

Garavaglia said the cause was ruled a homicide by unknown means.

Earlier, Florida police released evidence photos from the Caylee Anthony crime scene, among them one of a book they say they found in the woods that the child had been photographed reading before she vanished.

The pictures were among several cops publicized ahead of a Friday afternoon news briefing, during which authorities were expected to reveal findings about the bones and skull discovered near the little girl's family home.

The book is among numerous pieces of evidence Orange County Sheriff's deputies say they found in the privately-owned lot where a small child's skeletal remains turned up.

The press conference, scheduled for 2 p.m. EST at the Orange County Sheriff's Office, was announced by the county medical examiner.

Also Friday, police re-interviewed a county water meter reader who earlier this month discovered what likely are the girl's remains.

Detectives deny the worker is a suspect in the child's death.

The worker found bones Dec. 11 near the Orlando house where then 2-year-old Caylee lived with her mother and maternal grandparents. He also had called in a tip to police on Aug. 11, 12 and 13, telling them to look in the same area for the remains, police said.

Orange County Sheriff's officials say they believe the unidentified tipster was in the area on Dec. 11 following up on his own lead when he discovered the bones and skull.

Capt. Angelo Nieves said police are questioning the worker again, as well as the sheriff's deputy who took the original call. They want to know more about what prompted him to contact authorities and how they handled the tips.

The meter reader first called Aug. 11 to report a bag by the side of the road, reported. A deputy wasn't able to locate the worker, the station said.

The following day, the meter reader called a crime hotline. The information was passed on to the Orange County Sheriff's criminal investigation division.

And on Aug. 13, the utility worker called cops a third time, reported. He met with police, and a deputy did go into the wooded area to investigate the worker's claims, but didn't find anything. The scene was then cleared as a possible place of interest in the case.

There is now an internal probe under way within the police department into how the matter was handled.

"There are a lot of questions about the thoroughness of that response," Nieves told

Investigators were back at the wooded crime scene Thursday in their exhaustive dig for evidence. They said late Thursday they found additional bones that appear to be from a child.

Meanwhile, a representative for the defense lawyer of Caylee's mother Casey Anthony accused police of lying to the press and suggested they could be tampering with evidence at the site where a little child's bones were found.

Todd Black, a spokesman for Anthony's lead attorney Jose Baez, complained that investigators won't let the defense team observe their work at the scene where remains believed to be those of Anthony's daughter Caylee were discovered.

"Some of their comments are blatant lies," Black told "History has shown that in some cases authorities have been caught tampering with evidence. That is something we hope is not happening. We're not accusing anyone of anything."

Anthony, 22, has been charged with the little girl's murder and is being held in jail without bond.

Police said the bones discovered in the Caylee Anthony investigation could be identified by the end of the day on Thursday or on Friday.

Nieves remained tight-lipped about the nature of the evidence detectives have found at the site.

Some reports suggested teeth had been discovered.

Orange County Medical Examiner Dr. Jan Garavaglia — who has her own Discovery Channel TV show and calls herself "Dr. G." — is handling the tests. Her office said Thursday that they didn't know when the results would be ready but would put out a report when they were.'s Catherine Donaldson-Evans and FOX News' Phil Keating contributed to this report.

May your murdering psycho-bitch of a mother burn in Hell for all etertiny.

Chad in an Elmo suit

The concert last night was flippin' awesome. I'm tired, sore, hoarse, dehydrated, and my ears are still ringing. Jared says it sounds like I have some sort of disease. Called metal-itis.



First off, on the way to the show, Chele gave me some great news.

She's pregnant.

YAY! I'm gonna be Auntie Cherlyn! She and Henry are thrilled and I'm so excited for them. =]

So we get to the venue a little late due to traffic. We were gonna try for a spot on the balcony, but that was a no-go, so we ended up on the floor toward the back instead. We were right underneath the edge of the balcony. Through the whole show, I felt this need to protect my pregnant friend from moshers. I did a couple of times.

The first band was a local band called Hobgoblin. I'm pretty sure the NorVa always has local bands for openers. I Think it's been local bands every time I've been to a show there.

Next up was Snot.

I'd heard of them, but never really heard any of their stuff. I liked them a lot. I'm gonna have to get a CD or two of theirs.

At some point during Snot's set, someone's shirt fell on my head. It was pretty funny. It was a girl's pink shirt. We looked to the balcony above us to see if anyone looked like they were looking for it. No one did. So we chucked it on the floor.

10 Years was next.

They were really good. I'd heard they put on a great show, and they did not disappoint. They were heavier live than I expected them to be. For me, that's a good thing.

You know how when you go to a concert there's always music playing over the speakers between sets?

Well, after 10 Years' set, while the stage was getting set up for Mudvayne, whoever was in charge of what music gets played between sets decided to put on Metallica's Master of Puppets CD. As in, it played straight through 5 or 6 songs. I was a happy camper. So were a lot of other people. You could hear people singing along with it. "MASTER! MASTER!"

Then came Mudvayne.

Oh. My. Fucking. GOD!

They were amazing.

I loved every second of it. For some reason, Chad (the vocalist <3) came out wearing what looked like an Elmo suit. He was also sporting a red mohawk that looked pretty damn good. He changed clothes mid-set though, so that was good. The Elmo suit was distracting.

Not Falling
- 1
Death Blooms
Do What You Do
Fall Into Sleep
World So Cold
Nothing to Gein

Absolutely perfect setlist.

I'd say the best performance of the night was Nothing To Gein. It's a very intense song to begin with, but performance was spine-tingling. I was hoping to find a video on youtube of that, but there's not one yet. I'll give it a couple of days.

But I did find one good quality video from last night.

This is - 1

See? Elmo!

Since no one played... movie meme game, and because I have nothing else to write about today, here are the answers for the quotes. I'll name the movie the quote is from, the character who said it, and the actor that played them.

1: This job would be great if it wasn't for the fucking customers.
- Randal Graves (Jeff Anderson) Clerks.

2: There's only one "Return" ok? And it ain't "Of The King," it's "Of The Jedi."

3: I won't quake and bow down like the sycophants you have around you.
- Cleitus (Gary Stretch) Alexander

3: Stop. Police. Murder.
- Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

4: It's impossible, Lois could never have Superman's baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle the sperm? I guarantee you he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it's strong enough to carry his child?
- Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee) Mallrats

5: You're a fucking ugly bitch. I want to stab you to death, and then play around with your blood.
- Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) American Psycho

6: Goddamn, motherfucker got blood all over my best clown suit.
- Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) House of 1000 Corpses

7: I am the devil, and I am here to do the devil's work.

- Glen Lantz (Johnny Depp) A Nightmare On Elm St.

10: Those girls... they're eating grapes off the wallpaper. They're crazy.
- Toby Jacobs (Jared Leto) Girl, Interrupted

I would like to point out that when Jared read the initial post, he said, and I quote, "I don't see any Leto movie quotes."

There are quotes from 3 of his movies on there.

One of them was his.

In his defence, he did say he just kind of skimmed it.

I just felt like giving him shit.

<3 ya Jay! lol

Where the hell...

...are all my readers? What the fuck?


When I got off work tonight, I went to buy a six-pack of Bacardi Silver pomegranate mojitos. I grab one and go up to the check-out.

When I get up there, I notice that some previous customer was tampering with the six-packs of Bacardi Silver mojitos.

The one I had contained 3 of the pomegranate, 2 regular, and one mango.

I didn't feel like going all the way back to the back of the store to get a normal six-pack, so I went ahead and got what I had.

The mango is pretty tasty. =]

My latest discovery

Fucking YUM!

I am apparently obsessed with all things pomegranate.

Sunday, December 7, 2008

Jesus was Goth**

Jade showed me this. I lol'd.
**This is a joke. Please take it as such.
(clicking links will take you to pictures and stuff from the source site)

Jesus never referred to himself as goth. Everyone knows the gothest thing someone can do is deny he/she is a goth (case in point: Andrew Elritch and The Sisters of Mercy).

He is referred to as Lord Jesus. Even to this day, people call him Lord Jesus, much like other gothlings go by titles such as Lord Ashtoroth, or Lord Wolfbane. It wasn't so cheesy, in the beginning....

He was mocked by "normals." Even the gothest goth of them all was made fun of by ignorant rednecks and trendies.

Jesus was obsessed with death. Yes, he lived and breathed it, to to speak. He hung out in tombs with dead guys like Lazarus. He also spent time with lepers.

Jesus was secretly a vampire. At his last supper he said, "This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood." Transubstantiation is nothing but a fancy spell that changes wine into real blood! After all, how else could Jesus promise eternal life? In addition, when Jesus was up on the cross, the sun went dark so he wouldn't get those nasty sunburns vamps are so prone to.

He was always depressed. Think about it. What real Goth is ever happy? With all the exciting masochistic stuff he went through, is it any wonder that "Jesus wept?" He was, after all, known as the "man of sorrows."

Jesus was a great dresser. C'mon now. He might not have worn black all the time, but just take a close look at all those pictures we see of Christ. He wore long flowing robes, looking positively ethereal in white, or sombre in blood red. He wasn't afraid to pull gender-benders, either, which proved very influential to the San Francisco goth scene. He tended to wear a lot of dresses and skirts, yet somehow still look both undeniably male and sexy! And check out the fashion accessories. A crown of thorns or funeral shroud are the epitome of angst-fashion.

He went to the coolest clubs and dens of iniquity. Jesus hung out with the real "alternative" crowd of the time. His buddies were tax-collectors, feishists, and women of ill-repute. He also literally hung around with murderers (check out the cross scene), once again showing his fascination with death.

Christ surrounded himself with goth chicks. Mary Magdalene and Veronica were two of the first goth-chicks, but Jesus also has a horde of gothic groupies. How else would you describe all those nuns/brides of Christ? They wear all black and white, and are heavy into crosses, rosaries, and the contemplation of holy masochism.

He had the gaunt look down pat. You have to admit, few pictures you've ever seen of the guy had him rosy-cheeked and robust. The man was positively scrawny and white. He had cheekbones from Hell, and even his hipbones stuck way out.

He was big on crucifixes. Crosses are very goth. Jesus liked them so much that he would occasionally carry a huge one around with him. He was somewhat partial to ankhs too!

Christ was into body piercing. He only did it a few times, but what a statement he made with his piercings! He had a huge-guage piercing gun zap his hands, feet, and side. To top it all off, he did it all in front of an audience, making him one of the first performance artists. Here's a picture of his stage-hands helping him set up for his first piercing act.

Jesus was fascinated with the occult. When Jesus wasn't hanging around with whores and lepers, he was often out consorting with demons. He liked to find people possessed with evil spirits so that he could order the demons around. Once he even told a bunch of demons to go live in a herd of swine. To top it all off, he even went comparison shopping with Satan once. Here he is dissing the devil.

He spent time in tombs. Like I mentioned before, he hung out with Lazarus in one once, but there's much more to it. He once pretended to be dead for three days so that he could sleep in one. How goth can you get? I'll bet you never lived in a tomb. Only Christ, vampires, and Poppy Z. Brite characters get to do that.

Jesus knew how to party. Once he went to this wedding where everyone was a bunch of tight-asses. All they wanted to drink was water, but he fooled them. He went and switched wine (or was it absinthe?) for the water! Voila! Instant party!

Jesus was into kinky domination and submission. Okay, we all know that he liked to hang out with harlots. That's been quite established, even by the most zealous of right-wing Christians. But what did the big C do with these lovely ladies of the night? Well, he had them wipe his feet with their hair and tears. And let's not forget what he did to the moneychangers in his Dad's temple!

He was into fishnet. Jesus rarely went anywhere without his trusty fishnet. Occasionally, he would get a bit sick of it, and would throw it overboard while boating, but one of his disciples would always give it back to him. Of course, the disciple would clean all the fish out of it first.

Writer's Workshop

From Kathy's blog

Describe a time when your pet caused chaos.

Shortly after we got married, my (now ex) husband, Bob, and I acquired 2 pets.

Morpheus was a beautiful black cat with striking green eyes. He was 5 months old when we adopted him from the ASPCA. Soon after we adopted him, we discovered he had a bit of a mean streak. His favorite game was to sneak up on you, bite you, HARD, and run away.

Maxine, or Maxie, as we called her, was a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd mix that was given to us by some friends who could no longer keep her. She was such so loving and affectionate. Best dog ever. In caps. BEST. DOG. EVER.

Maxie was one of those dogs that would eat pretty much anything (aren't all dogs like that really?). We had to keep Morph's food on top of the washing machine because we quickly learned that Maxie would eat it all if we didn't.

We kept all the pet treats in a cabinet over the refrigerator because we didn't put it past Maxie to get into the lower cabinets and eat them all.

What we didn't take into account was the fact the Morph was a climber.

Bob and I had been out for the evening. We came home to find the brand new bag of dog treats we'd bought that day, and put in the high cabinet, torn open and empty in the middle of the living room. We went to the bedroom to find, lying on our bed, a very guilty looking dog. She also looked like she wasn't feeling too hot. We put her leash on her and took her outside, since we'd been out for a few hours. She promptly threw up. We were just grateful she'd kept it in until we got her outside.

Later on, we pieced together what happened.

The kitchen counter went flush up against the refrigerator. Morph could easily jump from the floor to the counter to the top of the fridge. He must have pawed open the cabinet and knocked the bag of dog treats onto the floor.

Either one of them could have torn the bag open. Morph wasn't declawed, and we weren't as good about keeping Max's nails trimmed as we could have been. And Maxie, being Maxie, ate all the treats.

Thankfully she was feeling much better the next day.

End of the weekend

At least it's the end of the weekend for most normal people. I still have one more day to work before I get my "weekend."

Friday and Saturday I had to work 9 hours both days. Apparently our area supervisor (my boss' boss) thought it was going to be uber-busy all weekend, so she scheduled all of us for 9 hour shifts. It turned out to be pretty slow and totally not worth it.

I did more today in an 8 hour shift than I did in the 18 combined hours I worked Friday and Saturday.


Last night I conducted a little experiment.

I'd bought a DVD and when I took it home and put it in my DVD player, it wouldn't play. A brand friggin' new DVD. And a pretty brand friggin' new DVD player.

I decided to see if the DVD would play in my 4 year old PS2.

It did.

So I tried another DVD I'd been having issues with and tried playing that in my PS2.

That one worked too.

Well I guess that's what I get for buying a $30 DVD player.

Oh hell, at least I can play all my DVDs now.

Saturday, November 29, 2008

blah blah blah

I had to work a 9 hour shift yesterday.

I have to do it again today.

It'd better be busier today than it was yesterday. But I'm supposed to have a highlight coming in today, so that'll be good. If she shows.

I have nothing else interesting to add...

Monday stuff

I was off work today, whereas I'm usually not.

One of the girls wanted Wednesday off because she had a bunch of family coming in for Thanksgiving and she's gotta cook all day. So I'm working her shift for her on Wednesday and she worked mine today. So I'm off today and tomorrow, working Wednesday, off again on Thursday for Thanksgiving. 3 days off in a row would have been preferable. But it's all good. I'm a team player.

BTW...Jared is at his grandmother's and said to wish our mutual readers a happy Thanksgiving. =]

Also, I have recently come to the realization that I have a major crush on this guy:

Dr. Drew Pinsky: addiction medicine specialist, host of Loveline and Celebrity Rehab.

Smart, funny, attractive...Dr. Drew almost makes me want to become a drug addict just so I can have him take care of me.

Does this mean I have less love for my beloved Stephen Colbert? Of course not! There's room in my heart for both of them.

*fangirl sigh*

I didn't sleep well.

I feel like shit.

I want to go back to bed.

I don't want to go to work.

But I'm going to work anyway.

Thursday, November 20, 2008

Fuckity fuck

I'm in a pissy mood.

I get to work this afternoon, and my manager told me her boss had been in and was fucking with people's schedules, including mine. She didn't mess with it too much, but she wants me to work noon till close on Saturdays.

That's 9 hours.

Which is not even the issue, considering I could take an hour lunch.

The issue is that, THAT'S MY WHOLE FUCKING DAY!

My manager said she'd be willing to work with me on that. I'm gonna tell her tomorrow that I'll do 1 till close. I won't do noon. No fucking way.


It was so disgustingly slow today. I did one customer.


The $5 tip I made paid for my dinner.


When I got off work I stopped my the ATM to pull out $20 so I'd have some cash on me. I don't like having no cash.

I forgot my fucking PIN number.


I'm so glad this day is over.

Another message

Early this morning I received this text message from Jared:

"Let Blog land know I am out of town for a while and to be easy on my mail box."

No, I don't know where he's going or why. I just know he'll be back in December and that he'll touch base with me when he can. So there ya go.

By the way, since it was asked, Ms. The Weenie won my contest with 17 1/2 points out of a possible 24 1/2.

Relaying a message to Blogland

As mentioned in my blog yesterday, Jared's laptop is broken.

Because he threw a hissy fit.

The funny thing is, Shannon did the same thing to his own laptop a while back, which Jared gave him shit about.

So yes, based on that alone, I think it's freaking hilarious.

But anyway!

Between the broken laptop and having a gazillion things to do, he's not sure when he's going to be blogging again.

I'm guessing he wanted me to relay the message because you all that read my blog read his too. So there you go.

Don't forget my contest!

Like a virgin....

So I have Yahoo IM forwarding set up on my phone. But I don't use it very often.

In fact, up until today, I'd only used it once before about 3 months ago.

Jared decided to IM me on there today. Probably because I'd mentioned something to him about emailing on my phone using more of my minutes (I have prepaid).

Well I was having some issues.

Me: i just dont do yahoo on my phone often at all so I wasnt sure i was doing it right.
Jared: text virgin!
Me: its been a long ass time since i been called any kind of virgin.

Yeah. Thanks Jared. lol

Don't forget my contest! I only have one entry so far. You have until this Saturday!

Contest announcement! (ETA: Congrats guys!)

In honor of my 200th post, which will be my next one, I am having a contest.

And because he'll probably bitch if I don't mention it, Jared came up with the idea.
(LOL <3 ya J!)

Tomorrow I will be posting a questionnaire, the answers to which can be found throughout my blog posts. This is to see how much you've all been paying attention.

Answers will be emailed to me instead of posted in my comment section.

The person with the most questions answered correctly will receive any professional hair care holiday package of their choice.

So study up!

30 Seconds to Mars won 2 MTV Europe Awards last night.

Congrats! Love you guys!

Writer's Workshop

My 10 absolute worst pet peeves.

1) People who can't follow simple directions, or just refuse to read them and do whateverthehell they like anyway.

2) Ignorant people who are content in their ignorance.

3) Drivers who don't use turn signals. Or wait until the last minute, after they hit the brakes, to flip it on.

4) Customers who went to cosmetology school but never took their State Board exam, yet think they know more than I do.

5) People who embellish things about themselves to make them look/seem better.

6) When fast-food places only give you 2 packets of ketchup for a medium order of french fries.

7) People who immigrate to the US without bothering to learn the language first.

8) Racism, sexism, intolerance in general.

9) People who talk too loud on their cell phones in public.

10) People who don't even attempt to control their children in public.

Wednesday, November 5, 2008


So I had plans to hang out with Chele tonight. We haven't hung out in quite a while so I was really looking foreward to it.

So I just get a text from her.

"Raincheck on tonite. Denise (her boyfriend's ex) is coming over to spend time with the kids. Not sure how long he'll be here and if any drama unfolds, dont want u around it."

These things happen. I understand. But I'm still bummed. She's working every night pretty much the rest of the time I'm on vacation. =[

On a lighter note...
Jared mentioned in his blog today that he licks his lips a lot. Which made me think of this.

Bitten in the ass by Karma

Yes I believe in Karma...

or The Law Of Three.

Whichever you want to call it. Same principal.

Well, Karma is currently biting me in the ass.

I'm getting paid back for all those illegally burned CDs I have, or have burned for others.

Two of my Korn CDs have to be replaced. Self-Titled somehow got broken in half, and Untouchables skips.

Not that big of a deal since I have them both imported to my iTunes. But still...

Now I have to buy the deluxe edition of 30 Seconds To Mars' A Beautiful Lie...again.

I had the regular edition of it, but when I found the deluxe edition, I gave the regular one to Chele because she told me the copy I'd burned for her (yes, burned...I know) had started skipping.

Now the CD that came with the deluxe edition skips. Again, not a big deal since it's imported to my iTunes.


The DVD that came with it...which has all kinds of special goodies...won't play anymore.

At all.

I put it in my brand spankin' new DVD player, and it says "disc error."

I put it in the ROM drive on the computer and it does nothing. It just makes funny noises.

I've cleaned it and everything, but to no avail.

Yay Karma.

She blew her mind out in a car

I have recurring dreams of being in car accidents.

Like driving my car over a cliff.

Being hit head-on by a semi.

Hitting a tree and flying through my windshield.

I had another one last night about my brakes going out and ramming into the back of a Jeep.

Those dreams never fail to freak me out. I'm convinced that's how I'm going to die when my time comes.

Friday, October 31, 2008


Samhain, (pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne) means "End of Summer", and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat.

It is generally celebrated on October 31st, but some traditions prefer November 1st. It is one of the two "spirit-nights" each year, the other being Beltane. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. Communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on their way to the Summerlands. It is a time to study the Dark Mysteries and honor the Dark Mother and the Dark Father, symbolized by the Crone and her aged Consort.

Originally the "Feast of the Dead" was celebrated in Celtic countries by leaving food offerings on altars and doorsteps for the "wandering dead". Today a lot of practitioners still carry out that tradition. Single candles were lit and left in a window to help guide the spirits of ancestors and loved ones home. Extra chairs were set to the table and around the hearth for the unseen guest. Apples were buried along roadsides and paths for spirits who were lost or had no descendants to provide for them. Turnips were hollowed out and carved to look like protective spirits, for this was a night of magic and chaos. The Wee Folke became very active, pulling pranks on unsuspecting humans. Traveling after dark was was not advised. People dressed in white (like ghosts), wore disguises made of straw, or dressed as the opposite gender in order to fool the Nature spirits.

This was the time that the cattle and other livestock were slaughtered for eating in the ensuing winter months. Any crops still in the field on Samhain were considered taboo, and left as offerings to the Nature spirits. Bonfires were built, (originally called bone-fires, for after feasting, the bones were thrown in the fire as offerings for healthy and plentiful livestock in the New Year) and stones were marked with peoples names. Then they were thrown into the fire, to be retrieved in the morning. The condition of the retrieved stone foretold of that person's fortune in the coming year. Hearth fires were also lit from the village bonfire to ensure unity, and the ashes were spread over the harvested fields to protect and bless the land.

Various other names for this Greater Sabbat are Third Harvest, Samana, Day of the Dead, Old Hallowmas (Scottish/Celtic), Vigil of Saman, Shadowfest (Strega), and Samhuinn. Also known as All Hallow's Eve, (that day actually falls on November 7th), and Martinmas (that is celebrated November 11th), Samhain is now generally considered the Witch's New Year.

Symbolism of Samhain:
Third Harvest, the Dark Mysteries, Rebirth through Death.

Symbols of Samhain:
Gourds, Apples, Black Cats, Jack-O-Lanterns, Besoms.

Herbs of Samhain:
Mugwort, Allspice, Broom, Catnip, Deadly Nightshade, Mandrake, Oak leaves, Sage and Straw.

Foods of Samhain:
Turnips, Apples, Gourds, Nuts, Mulled Wines, Beef, Pork, Poultry.

Incense of Samhain:
Heliotrope, Mint, Nutmeg.

Colors of Samhain:
Black, Orange, White, Silver, Gold.

Stones of Samhain:
All Black Stones, preferably jet or obsidian.

I'll be working tonight, so I have no big plans to observe this Sabbat. But when I get home from work I'm planning on conducting a quiet ritual at the small altar I keep set up in my room, in honor of my late step-father, who died from cancer 6 years ago, and my friend Mary, who was killed by a drunk driver in 1991.

Merry ye meet
an' merry ye part!
Blessed Be!

Writer's Workshop

Why I write.

I write in my blog when I want to vent, bitch, talk about stupid shit no one else cares about, and to brag about things going on in my life.

When I'm sad or depressed, I write poetry. It's not that great, I don't think. But it does the job of getting my emotions out.

Also, sometimes - and I don't tell many people this - I write out of sexual frustration. I write my fantasies. I've found it to be a good outlet. Sometimes I'll let my closest friends read them, sometimes not. My best friend Chele read the last one I wrote, but no one else has.

So don't ask.

New Kevin Smith movie!

I'm a huge fan of the films of Kevin Smith (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, Clerks 2). He's got a new movie coming out soon, and I'm stoked. It looks funny as hell.

The best text I got today

"i went and got a venti mocha frap with double whip cream at im on a starbucks double shot expresso. im like a little spider monkey on crack."

Anyone wanna guess who that was from??


I also took this at work early this morning.

Yay for crappy camera phone pictures.

I also lost my front driver's side hubcap on my way to work yesterday.

It was there when I left the house. It was gone when I got to Startbucks 15 minutes later.

Now my car looks stupid.

Diva Hairstylists

I work with this woman. Let's call her D.

She's been doing hair for 20 years, and she's an excellent stylist.


She is a fucking diva.

She used to manage her own salon, and acts like she manages ours. She does not.

She comes and goes as she pleases. As in, she'll disappear and not tell anyone where she went. So we don't know if she went to the restroom and will be back in 5 minutes, or if she went to lunch and will be back in 30.

One Sunday she and I were working the salon together. I came in at 10am, and she came in at 11am. We were both supposed to work until 6pm.

At 5:30 she'd finished up a customer and started packing up her stuff to go home. I was still in the middle of a haircut and there was still one waiting.

The conversation went something like this:

Me: You know there's still a customer waiting?
D: You know I'm going home?
Me: Do you know it's not 6 'o clock yet?
D: I didn't take a lunch break.
Me: That doesn't mean you get to leave early, especially when I was here an hour before you and there's still someone waiting.
D: You took a lunch break.
Me: So? I didn't keep you from taking one. You could've taken one at anytime. Now I'll have to stay late when I was here before you.
D: Well I'm still leaving.
Me: Fine! Go.

We were basically yelling at each other across the salon floor. After D left, I apologized profusely to the customers in my chair and the one that was waiting. They both understood and agreed I was in the right. But the lady that was waiting decided to leave.

And yesterday, she got all pissy because customers were coming in and requesting other stylists. It's their prerogative to have anyone they want do their hair. That's just how it is. She should know that. But instead, she decided she was going to go home for the day. Sharon, my boss, who didn't really want to deal with her crap, let her go. She did write her up though, for walking out.

I haven't really liked this girl from day one. She has a snotty attitude and acts like her shit don't stink.

I really hate having stress and drama at work.

Television Confusion

Last night I was doing something that would have annoyed the hell of me if someone else had been dong it with me in the room.

I was flipping through 3 different channels watching 3 different programs at the same time.

On Comedy Central was The Colbert Report.

On MTV2 was Essential Metallica.

On FX was Urban Legend.

Stephen Colbert, Metallica, and Jared Leto, all on TV at the same time??

I'm sure you see my dilemma.

So since I couldn't pick just one, I watched bits and pieces of each. It was unfulfilling.

3 years ago today...

on October 19th, 2005, after 18 years...





Friday, October 17, 2008

Well today was interesting...

When I got to work this afternoon there was this strange man waiting on me to cut his hair. Apparently I've cut his hair before. For the life of me, I didn't remember him. I'm normally really good with faces. I still don't remember him. But he was just...strange. Strange in that kind of way you really can't put your finger on. Something's just not right about him.

A bit later this woman brought her 10 year old daughter, with hair down to her butt, to get a couple of inches trimmed off. I was brushing through the girl's hair before the shampoo as I always do. The mother decided she didn't like how I was brushing her hair (???) and took her daughter and left.

What. The. Fuck? Jeeze, I know how to brush hair. It's not like I was hurting the girl or anything.

And now for the highlight of my day.

I was in the middle of doing cutting a woman's hair, and this guy was in there getting his hair trimmed by one of the other girls.

After he pays, he walks over to me, as I'm cutting this woman's hair, and says: "my name is Robert. Would you like to go out?"

Now might be a good time to mention he looked like a reject form ZZ Top. He also looked old enough to be my father.

My first instinct was to say: ""

But instead I said: "You know, I'm working right now." At which point he turned and left.

Ok, first of all, why would you go up and ask out someone when they're obviously busy?

Second of all, I'm oddly half flattered and half insulted.

Flattered because he apparently found me attractive. Great.

Insulted because there must have been something about me that made him think I'd be attracted to him. Do I look desperate or something?

So that was my day.

Writer's Workshop

From Kathy's Blog:

This week I chose to write about something I did to get noticed. I have to admit, I enjoy getting noticed. Sometimes it upsets me when I'm not. The poem in my last blog is an example of that. But at the same time, I don't really consider myself an attention whore. There are things I could tell anyone who'd listen that would definately get me attention, but I choose not to, for many reasons.

But I digress.

Let's go back to the year 1990. It was the last semester of my Senior year in high school. Every spring we put on a musical, the cast mostly consisting of those of us in chorus. The lead roles nearly always went to Seniors.

The year before, my Junior year, we did South Pacific. My then-boyfriend/now-ex-husband Michael, who was a Senior, had the male lead. I played a nurse, a Polynesian girl, and was the understudy for the female lead. I completely learned her part because when we weren't rehearsing I was helping Michael run his lines. I never got to play that part though, because I was merely the understudy.

Now, when my Senior year rolled around and the time came to decide on the play, Wizard Of Oz was chosen. Not to brag or anything (ok, I'm bragging), but everybody pretty much knew I was going to get cast as Dorothy.

There was this other Senior girl, Gena, who decided to go up for the part. She was also in chorus. Even though she did have an amazing voice, she was only in the class for an easy A. Everybody knew it, including the teacher. Anytime a soprano solo came about, it always went to me instead of her. The teacher said that was because Gena didn't have the same passion for it as I did. Gena was obviously jealous.

Gena came up tome the day before auditions and said "Just a warning: I'm trying out for Dorothy. Don't get your hopes up." She was doing it just to spite me. But I'll admit I was a little nervous about it. Despite her bad attitude, the girl could sing. But I had every intention of showing her up.

For whatever reason, when they held the auditions, everybody tried out in front of everybody else. Gena went up before me. Her acting was ok. She sang really well. I thought she had a good shot. But I wasn't going to let that happen.

When my turn came, my acting was a bit better than her's had been (I was also in drama. She wasn't). Then I had to sing "Somewhere Over The Rainbow." I absolutely crushed it. I sang my heart out.

The only time I sang it better, was 2 months later on opening night.

During the curtain call at the end of the first preformance, Michael, who was my finace by then, came up on stage and gave me a bouquet of roses. Everyone's eyes were on me.

I felt amazing. Invincible. Beautiful.

I felt like I should blog something

...but I couldn't think of anything interesting to write about. Seeing as my life, as of right now, is completely uninteresting.

A couple of you have shown interest in reading some of the poetry I've written. So I decided I'd share something I wrote a couple of years ago. It's about feeling like you don't belong.

A Foot In The Door

I'm standing outside
With a foot in the door
I can never quite squeeze through the crack
They see me
Come and say hello
Stay for a while
Then walk away
They found someone more interesting
To talk to
Or something better
Or more important to do
Please see me again
Let me in
Don't shut the door
In my face

Today is going to suck

I had a horrible time getting to sleep last night.

I laid down around midnight. Tossed and turned for an hour.

Around 1am I got up too look for the NyQuil. I knew if I took a shot it would knock me out. There as none to be found. Then I remembered my mom had it in her bathroom, which I'd have to go into her bedroom to get. I was so not going to do that.

(note to self: buy NyQuil)

So I got back in bed and tossed and turned some more.

The last time I looked at the clock it was about 2:30am. Then I put something in front of the clock so I couldn't see it anymore. I'm pretty sure I passed out shortly after that.

I had to be up at 7am.

Why does this shit only ever happen when I have to be up early the next day?

Today is so going to suck.

Writer's Workshop: When I'm Upset

From Kathy's Blog:

I do a lot of different things when I'm upset. They vary depending on if it's angry-upset or sad-upset. Sometimes anger will morph into sadness. Or vice versa. I've found I tend to deal with anger better.

Sometimes I'll listen to loud, angry metal music to help vent aggression.

Sometimes I'll cry. This goes for both sadness and anger. If I get so angry I cry, watch your ass. Because then I'm only one step away from throwing things at you. I rarely miss.

Sometimes, especially when I'm sad, I'll intentionally do things to make myself more upset, to the point where I'll cry. The reason for that is simple. Crying makes me feel better. It's a release. Sometimes nothing does the trick like a good cry.

Sometimes I write cheesy, emo-angsty poetry that no one will ever read.

Sometimes I vent to whoever will listen.

Sometimes I blog.

Tuesday, October 7, 2008

On my last blog I was asked:

tell me if you've ever seen another hair stylist's hair that was so awful that you were like "you're not coming near me, nor is the person who did that to you!"

The simple answer to that is yes.

But here's the thing: the majority of the time a stylist's hair is jacked up, they did it themselves. Or the person that did their hair did exactly what they were told, and it got messed up.

I went to cosmetology school with a girl who had a different hair color every week. She'd bleach it out and dye it pink. The next week she'd bleach it out again and dye it blue (She had to bleach it out first to get the really intense colors, you see). Her hair was a fried up mess because of all that bleaching.

My hair got completely fried many years ago because I got a perm on top of highlights that I had. I didn't blame my co-worker that gave me that perm. It was my own damn fault. I knew there was a good chance it would fuck my hair up, but I wanted it anyway. And that's why I now only use demi-permanent color on my permed hair.

There was also a lady that worked at my salon a year ago or so that just did not have good hair. It was fine and curly and she never did anything with it. It was always in a ponytail. A lot of people would look at her hair and not want her to do theirs. But she was a damn good hair stylist. She just couldn't be bothered with her own.

So you see, appearances don't always mean everything.

I was bored work today. So I flat ironed my hair.

Behold shitty camera-phone picture.

My lunch today

Grilled chicken nachos from El Pollo Loco.

I believe that's Spanish for "The Crazy Chicken"

But I digress.

It has pico de gallo, sour cream, guacamole, jack & poblano queso, and their special flame-grilled chicken over tortilla chips.


Saturday, October 4, 2008


Tonight at work was pretty slow. It's usually busier during the day on Saturdays than in the evening. But I'll normally at least do something. I didn't do a single head of hair between 6 and 9pm. That's 3 hours, sitting on my ass, bored, doing nothing. Fuuuuuck!

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Writer's Workshop: Before The Internet

From Kathy's Blog:

Before the Internet, or rather, before I started spending a lot of time with it (which was sometime in 2004), my life was pretty different.

I watched way too much daytime television. My mornings consisted of Good Morning America, Live With Regis And Kathie Lee (later Kelly), Maury Povich, and The View.

I read a lot more books.

I read the newspaper and watched the Weather Channel, Discovery and Animal Planet.

I would actually stand in line to buy concert tickets.

I paid for "adult entertainment."

There was no way I would have made friends with people who lived in Ireland, Norway, Romania, or even California or Arizona.

When I discovered the Internet, I was forever changed. I'm still not sure if that's good or bad.
