Armageddon is here
Well, it wasn't who I expected it to be, but Armageddon has begun with the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. I really thought Rehnquist would go first, but I guess O'Connor just couldn't wait to screw women all over the country. Filibusters, here we come.
I'm too upset to write more about this, but you can read about it here.
Life could be worse
I can't believe it's already July. I'm off of work today because my company rocks. I am so glad to be off. A couple of weeks ago I got transferred down to Accounting where I'm working as an Accounts Payable clerk , and seeing as this week was the end of the quarter, I really feel that I deserved today off. It was a long and really hard week. Did I mention long? On Monday I was there from 8am until 7:30pm with a half hour break for lunch (and probably a couple of potty breaks too, but you get the point).
Anyway, I really like the new gig, even if I'll only have it for the next four weeks. They like me too. Based, I think, on the really hard work we put in this week, my supervisor decided to pay Chris and I (he's the other temp) for today. Also, we apparently did something really good helping our manager enter this one kind of invoice, because my supervisor is giving Chris and I two free passes each to Great Adventure! Too bad they closed Kingda Ka or whatever it was called. I guess the tallest, fastest roller coaster in the world was not the safest one ever. Oh well.
Hmm, not too much is new. I kissed one of my high school crushes last night. Didn't sleep with him though, because he has a girlfriend. He was drunk, I was...tipsy, and now we can go back to the way things were in high school (i.e. not talking to each other). I'm really not giving anyone a favorable impression of myself with all my kisses boys with girlfriends (at least I didn't sleep with this one...and I slept with the other one only after he had broken up with his girlfriend). Oh, there may be more kissing going on tonight. My friend Dan, who I've kissed before (I'm a little bit of a makeout bandit...it seems I'll kiss almost anything with lips), just broke up with his girlfriend. I had told him to call me when it didn't work out (there's more story behind that weird statement, but I don't feel like explaining it). Anyway, the point is, he did call me, and I'm pretty sure we're meeting up tonight. Too bad I don't feel like showering. Maybe I'll do it later. Right now it's off to open up a bank account so I can start the switch to a new bank that's closer to where my apartment is going to be. Only a month left until I move in! YAY!
no longer homeless
Yaaaaayyyyy....I got an apartment. I don't move in until August 1st, but Caitlin and I have been officially approved and will be the new tenants in unit 315! Halleluja! Now I just have to worry about getting new sheets, a new bed (not the mattress or boxspring, but I need a new frame), a new dresser, a new tv, a new nightstand...shit, I am going to be so poor...but at least I'll be living on my own again!
Oh happy day!
lets go titans!
I'm really not sure if I've ever been to a hockey game as exciting as this one
was. The Titans were down 2-0 at the end of two periods, and the whole arena was quiet. I wasn't seriously thinking that they would win considering the way they had been playing. Then they turned up the juice a bit at the beginning of the third period and finally scored one. Then a second, third, fourth, and FIFTH goal! It was incredible. And all of the goals in the third period were unanswered by the Everblades. Fucking incredible. And it certainly bodes well for the Titans, since in the whole history of the Kelly Cup, the team that has won Game 5 has always gone on to win the Cup. Too bad the final games are going to be played in Florida. I'd LOVE to be there to see them win it. I guess I'll have to settle for watching it on TV.
Yeah yeah, I know...REALLY long time no blog. I apologize for being so delinquent but I seriously have had a ton of shit going on.
The most importnat thing is...I got an apartment! I haven't moved in yet, I probably won't move in until the second week of August, but my roommate and I (her name is Caitlin), get the place on July 1st. It's gorgeous, with hardwood floors and new kitchen appliances and stuff. I'm seriously psyched. Oh yeah, and its in Hoboken, because I'm going to Rutgers-Newark (I mentioned before that I wasn't going to Arizona right?). Right, so that's been keeping up a bunch of my time. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to find an apartment that accepts dogs. And its not like I have a Great Dane or anything. Henry is like this 30lb. little sprite.
The other thing that took up a bunch of my time was actually finding a roommate. Caitlin is a few years younger than me (she'll be 22 at the end of June, I'll be 25 next February - how much does that SUCK?) and she just graduated from college, but we've met once and we really got along. She's a smoker like me, but we decided not to smoke in the apartment. She likes partying and The Killers (my new favorite band...their CD has been stuck in my CD player for the past three weeks non-stop) and she's going to be in the same LS class as me. So that's good.
Hmm, what else? Well, there was my month of physical therapy for my "levator scapulae syndrome." I'm actually kind of upset that PT is done because my arms were getting pretty ripped from all the exercises they had me doing. Not that we don't have free weights in the basement, but I'm lazy.
My job sucks...well, that's not true. I like the job when I have stuff to do, which lately is never. I spend the vast majority of my days doing pretty much nothing, which is seriously boring. But I love the people I work with. I just prefer to do my game playing and internet surfing in my pajamas, sort of like now...but that doesn't get me paid and I can't wear pajamas to work.
My sister and I are going to a Trenton Titans game tonight (that's the ECHL hockey team near us). They're in the Kelly Cup finals (like the Stanley Cup, but in the ECHL). We were at the game on Friday night too, which they lost in overtime. Oh yeah, and I've been a sober bunny this weekend. That has sucked in a major way, but my parents are in California for my second cousin's wedding and my brother got a job up at Lake George for the summer so its just me, my sister and the dogs and I'm not allowed to go out and party. Know how much I wanted to kill my cousin for choosing to get married in California over Memorial Day Weekend?? He lives in NYC for Christ's sake! I could have been partying my ass off at the shore this weekend. Okay, my rant is over, and so is this post. Hope you guys haven't all abandoned me! I promise I'll post more!
Wow, what a crazy few days this has been in the news. On Thursday Terri Schiavo died, which personally made me feel a little relieved because I was tired of watching her family fight through the media and in the courts. Lucky for me, the Pope took over the news just after Sciavo's death. And now today the Pope has died. It's amazing to see how many thousands of people are crowded into St. Peter's Square in Vatican City. It's actually pretty touching. And in less earth shattering news, Prince Rainier of Monaco is in a coma and is not expected to survive, so his son Prince Albert has taken over as the reining monarch in Monaco. Until yesterday I was not aware the Monaco was a principality, not a country. Did you know that if Prince Albert does not produce a male heir then Monaco gets turned back over to the French? How much does that suck? I'd be mad. Prince Albert needs to start getting it on if he cares about his country (sorry, principality). Okay, enough about the news now. I'm bored of it all already and we've still got weeks to go of Pope news.
