My newest obsession

Why is it I tend to get addicted to TV shows when the series is in its last season?

That's why God made re-runs.

I just bought Season 1 on DVD. I'll buy Season 2 next week.


This about made me piss myself laughing.

Hooray for not being sick!

Or at least not as sick as I thought I was.

I haven't felt well since Sunday. But I've been just sucking it up, taking ibuprofen and going to work. Last night I had a fever of 102. This morning it was gone and I felt much better. Aside form a sore throat.

This afternoon I noticed my glands were a bit swollen and tender. With my throat still being sore I took a good look at my throat in one of the mirrors.

My left tonsil looked like someone had painted it with White-Out.

Normally, this type of pattern means only one thing with me: strep throat.

So after I got off work I went to this urgent care center up the street to get it looked at. They took a throat culture and it came back negative for strep.

But I do have tonsillitis.

10 days on antibiotics and I'll be good as new. =]

Yes, I am stupid

So I was going through some old emails on my hotmail account, and for some reason I read a bunch of old emails from my ex-boyfriend Terry. So now I'm all emotional.

Let me give you some background info.

My relationship with Terry was a long-distance one. He lives in Colorado in a suburb of Denver. We talked on IM and on the phone all the time.

Terry and I both have relationship issues. We're both kind of insecure and he had a jealous streak that didn't mesh well with the fact that I have a lot of male friends, some of which I have flirtatious friendships with. And I have abandonment issues that didn't mesh well with him not contacting me for a week or two when he got upset about my guy friends. But then I'd hear from him and he wouldn't talk about what had upset him in the first place. And we were both really stubborn, which didn't help the other issues.

When we broke up, we fought a LOT. Everything that had bothered each of us about the other came out. Sometimes in not the nicest way.

Eventually things calmed down, and one of us would email the other just to touch base and say hi.

It's been about a year since I heard from him. I emailed him on his birthday last April, to which he responded in kind.

But after reading all those emails, I feel a really strong urge to get in touch. But a part of me thinks it would be a bad idea.

What to do..?

I'm Back!

So last Saturday my mom calls me at work and tells me the computer won't turn on. It had been working just fine that morning.

We had it looked at and tried different stuff, and our computer guy declared it not only merely dead, but really most sincerely dead.

As of today, my mom and I are the proud owners of a brand spankin' new HP w1970.

...was one of those days.

I spilled juice on my keyboard and now my "2" and my "q" stick together.

I broke the glass pendant my mom's friend got me for Christmas.

I got to work to discover my boss had accidentally put her paycheck at my station and taken mine.

I almost got in an accident on my way to meet her to trade checks because some not-knowing-how-to-drive douchenozzle cut me off.

A customer treated me like I didn't know what the fuck I was doing because I was asking questions about how she wanted her hair cut. Apparently I'm supposed to "just know."

I was punched by a two-year-old who did NOT want his hair cut. Did his mom say anything? Nope.


I really hope today is better.

Ok so...

I know I haven't blogged in a while.

I've been working a lot and I have some personal shit going on that I'm not entirely sure I want to share. I will at some point. Just not yet.

So I leave you with this:

I Twittered a hell of a lot today.

That's a record for me.
I am going to blame Erika. =]

And I have brand new pics, taken today before I went to work.

Bathroom pics. How Myspace of me.

Found it!

Alexander the Great
by Robin Lane Fox

The copy I bought has a much more recent cover.

Yes, that is Colin Farrell in a still from the movie Alexander, which was the impetus of me wanting to read this book

Now I want to hurry up and finish reading The Persian Boy so I can crack this puppy open.

Pink dolphin!

Pink dolphin appears in US lake

The world's only pink Bottlenose dolphin which was discovered in an inland lake in Louisiana, USA, has become such an attraction that conservationists have warned tourists to leave it alone.

Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, photographed the animal, which is actually an albino, when he began studying it after the mammal first surfaced in Lake Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA.

Capt Rue originally saw the dolphin, which also has reddish eyes, swimming with a pod of four other dolphins, with one appearing to be its mother which never left its side.

He said: "I just happened to see a little pod of dolphins, and I noticed one that was a little lighter.

"It was absolutely stunningly pink.

"I had never seen anything like it. It's the same color throughout the whole body and it looks like it just came out of a paint booth.

"The dolphin appears to be healthy and normal other than its coloration, which is quite beautiful and stunningly pink.

"The mammal is entirely pink from tip to tail and has reddish eyes indicating it's albinism. The skin appears smooth, glossy pink and without flaws.

"I have personally spotted the pink dolphin 40 to 50 times in the time since the original sighting as it has apparently taken up residence with its family in the Calcasieu ship channel.

"As time has passed the young mammal has grown and sometimes ventures away from its mother to feed and play but always remains in the vicinity of the pod.

"Surprisingly, it does not appear to be drastically affected by the environment or sunlight as might be expected considering its condition, although it tends to remain below the surface a little more than the others in the pod."

Regina Asmutis-Silvia, senior biologist with the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, said: "I have never seen a dolphin coloured in this way in all my career.

"It is a truly beautiful dolphin but people should be careful, as with any dolphins, to respect it - observe from a distance, limit their time watching, don't chase or harass it

"While this animal looks pink, it is an albino which you can notice in the pink eyes.

"Albinism is a genetic trait and it unclear as to the type of albinism this animal inherited."

A close relation of dolphins, the Amazon River Botos, called pink dolphins, live in South America in the Amazon.

How freaking cute is that!

Go me!

When I quit smoking (October 19th, 2005) I weighed 203 lbs.

I've always been a bit on the heavy side. I try to take care of myself, but I'm genetically cursed. My dad was/is a big dude.

But I digress.

Within a year after quitting smoking, I got up to 240 lbs and wearing a size 22. That's the biggest I've ever been in my life.

I started watching the portions of what I was eating (deprivation does not work for me. I end up binging.), and walking up to 2 miles a day.

As of right now, I'm down to 190 lbs and a
size 16.

I still want to lose another 30-40 lbs. But this is the smallest I've been in about 15 years.

So I'm pretty damn proud of myself.
