I saw Pirates!

I saw Pirates of the Caribbean!!! And I hadn't even planned to but we had relatives in and someone decided why don't we all go to the movies. I was surprised it wasn't even packed but then it was the 5:00 show.

BEWARE...spoilers be hereCollapse )

One of those weird days...

I never go to McDonald's but I did this morning. Apparently their idea of "crisp bacon" and mine differ greatly. The stuff that was on my biscuit was slime. I stopped on the side of the road to try and get it off, thinking I could at least eat the biscuit and egg but the nasty bacon wouldn't unglue and I ended up chucking the whole thing out the window. Now that's something I usually DO NOT DO is litter in any kind of way but I was so digusted and my stomach churning that I obviously wasn't thinking clearly. And it wasn't any paper litter, just the food, but I felt guilty. Maybe some poor starving bird ate it and hopefully nobody reported me as a litterbug.:(

Then I get to work and everybody's standing outside. You know me, first thing I thought was, yay, we get to go home cause something happened. I was on a roll today. But no, the sprinkler in one of the back offices had malfunctioned and wet everything down pretty good. We had to stand there until the fire department checked everything out and then somebody called whoever cleaned the building and they came and mopped a trail for us to walk on (apparently firemen have very dirty boots) and there we were. The morning killed and everyone gripey.

Then I'm daydreaming on the way home about this nice little house I always pass that's for sale and I REALLY wish I had it, and an orange stripity cat runs in front of me. I slammed on the breaks and must have missed him by a hair. Now I am a cat lover, a fanatical cat lover as a matter of fact, and I don't know what I would have done if I'd actually hit it. And thank God that nobody was following right behind me or they would've hit me. I came right home, decided I needed nothing from the store, even though I feel an attack of Dr. Pepper craving coming on and I'd wanted some fresh fruit cause mine's icky soft grapes and a couple of half frozen oranges, but I decided I wouldn't chance anything else.

An unsatisfying day...

I tried to make dumplings for dinner but they just don't taste as they should. Maybe the damn flour was old or something. But I ate them anyway, put shredded cheddar cheese all over them. Yeah, I know that's strange. When I was a kid I used to eat a whole can of the Sweet Sue dumplings with cheese melted in them and a whole bunch of black pepper. A couple of months ago I bought a can and that stuff was NASTY.

I'm obsessed with food today. I really wanted to stop and get Chinese at my favorite place but I'm trying not to spend money this week. Maybe I'll make a glass of chocolate ovaltine. Maybe my hormones are wacky this week.

Boss lady was primping all day. Her husband was coming home, he works over in another country and apparently makes a ton of money. Anyway, we were tortured with little hints about their sex life. There's nothing grosser than hearing about the boss's sex life with her neanderthal husband. Then she worried over the part in her hair showing too much black roots and moaning about how she wished she'd been to the hairdresser before hubby got home. As if he doesn't know she's not a natural blonde. Please don't let me ever be like her when I grow up.

Didn't know what I wanted to do...

I was prowling the library this evening, looking for something different to read. Then I thought about the Dresden books that the TV series was based on, but do you think the library had any of them? NO. So I left...bookless. That's kind of sad.

I came home and kind of haphazardly stuck some begonias and geraniums in some pots on the porch. Hope they like last year's soil cause I didn't buy any new. They're kind of scraggly since I bought them weeks ago. Maybe they'll catch on. I poked around after that but it was so muggy I finally gave up and came in. Turned the AC too cool and tried not to think about the dozens of things I should have been doing. And I forgot to fill the bird feeder and the squirrel feeder.

Supernatural and CSI finales last night!!!

Okay, CSI blew me away last night. The best one I think I've seen in years and I think I feel the beginnings of my obsession with it coming back.

Beware...CSI spoilers!Collapse )

And then there was Supernatural, part 2 of the big season finale. Very emotional but not really as exciting as I had thought it would be.

Spoilers...Supernatural...Collapse )

Good TV night...

It's Supernatural night! And CSI. At least I think they're both on. I'll watch Supernatural at the regular time and then catch CSI on the west coast channel and cross my fingers I don't fall asleep. I need a...is it a DVR or a TiVo? What's the difference? I'm missing too much and if there are two great shows on then of course it's at the exact same time. And is it the big finale for CSI?? I am so unorganized.

May. 15th, 2007


Blah, blah, blah...

I watch Crossing Jordan TWICE, and then hear they cancelled the show.

We have training at work this week. With the same guy who did a session last fall. This guy is gorgeous. He has a mouth like Dean Winchester's but his hair is black. And he is an asshole. Every time he opens that beautiful mouth he is running somebody down. One of my co-workers said he's already separated from a THIRD wife and had several kids, most of whom don't even belong to the wives. He needs some kind of warning label on his forehead and one on his dick for whoever's stupid enough to go there. Boss lady fawns on him, she is such an ass kisser.

Maybe I should find some LJ friends. Maybe I'm ALONE too much with my weirdo thoughts.

Today could have been better...

I left work early today. You know why? Cause ALL DAY LONG I worried I left the coffee pot plugged in and it was slowly overheating. And I usually don't drink coffee but made some this morning cause I wanted something hot for my scratchy throat and didn't have any chocolate left for hot chocolate and I dislike hot tea. Then of course I couldn't remember if I turned it off. Anyway, I left work saying I wasn't feeling well, which was true, my throat still hurt and I had that headachy feeling but I just couldn't think straight until I came home and looked at that damned coffee pot. Which of course was not only turned off but unplugged. You know I used to be bad about that, I suppose it's some kind of disorder, but when I was in college I would actually write down "I turned the stove off" and "I unplugged the curling iron" and put them in my pocket to look at when I got that feeling I'd forgotten to do it even though I thought I did...it's a bad feeling and I hope it's not starting up again.

Then I read Jorja Fox, Sarah on CSI, is LEAVING THE SHOW, WTF??? I waited years for her and Grissom to pair up and then was shocked when the writers actually did it, and now she's going away? Give the girl her money, she's a damned good actress. And PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't bring back Lady Heather, ick.

Grrrrrrr...mean old, ugly boss lady...

I'm trying to write again but it's not going so good. It sounds good in my head but then sounds like a four-year-old when I write it. So I came here to look around, thinking somethinng might inspire me.

When I came back from lunch today all the parking spots were taken, something going on in some of the shops a street over, and I lapped and lapped for a good fifteen minutes. When I came in, the boss made some flippant comment about enjoying long lunch hours. I was so mad already after lapping around our building so long that I was ready to bite her head off. Fortunately a co-worker walking by heard it and stopped to ask the boss what was going on that the parking lot and even down the shoulder of the road was full. She said oh, is it, and bounced off to hang out the door. She could've said sorry, couldn't she, for her nasty little remark but that would be like admitting she made a mistake and she NEVER does that.:[ Bitch. I'm sorry gentle readers, but she is, always has been behind her ditsy blonde looks.

I really wanted to go to Australia...

A friend from work is going on vacation next month to Australia and asked me to come with her. Australia! Another country! I wanted to say yes so bad that I didn't know what to do. But my savings account is almost empty from a trip back in December and I sure don't want to borrow anything, so I said no and hoped she didn't hear me sniffling. We're not close friends but she's a nice, easygoing person and I think we'd be fine traveling together. Maybe next time. *sob*

And I haven't been sleeping well at night. I'll sleep a couple of hours and then wake up for 3 or 4. I tried staying up later to see if that would make me go to sleep for a longer period but it didn't. I won't let myself have a Dr. Pepper or anything with caffeine after 6:00. I even bought some of those nasal strips for my nose thinking I was getting stuffy and that's what was waking me. I could breathe better but I didn't sleep more.

My cat is acting goofy too. He's up rambling around early, looking out all the windows and I had to lift the blinds on some cause he was messing them up. It's like he's remembering life before his surgery and he wants out to tomcat around. Tomcat...that's what they call Tom Cruise. *snicker* But it must be embarassing for Katie. He's beautiful and talented but he just looks like he'd be a pain in the ass to live with.

Just me gripinng about something...

I need it to be Friday already instead of just beginning the week.:)

I tried again to watch Heroes tonight but my attention span seemed to be on the lower end of the scale. I could see that it's a good show but I just can't FOCUS on it enough to really understand what was going on. I have a couple of friends who watch it devotedly and I really would like to know what they're talking about when they're discussing the latest episode.

Then I went on a mini cleaning spree. I have a tendency to laze around but then get the sudden bouts of wanted to frantically clean everything. It's the only reason my place stays so clean. Anyway, I moved some things I had stored in a corner of the utility room and there were bugs. I'm not sure what they were, little and brown and maybe some kind of roaches? and I freaked and tore through the shelves looking for bug killer and hopefully made them extremely ill and eventually dead. Then I started worrying they were somewhere else in the house and looked everywhere, moving this and that, until I was exhausted. It's not time for the exterminator to come round again but should I call them anyway? And will it cost me or is it in my yearly plan thingy? Always some little shit to worry about. That's what makes people nuts, we survive the big stuff like injuries and illnesses and family deaths, but all these nitpicking everyday little problems all build up on you together and skyrocket the blood pressure and make you crazy.

Late again...

Well, I'm a little late for work but I don't really care today. I swept and vacuumed and have clothes swirling around in both the washing machine and the dryer. I put some red beans and sausage...highly seasoned...in my trusty old crockpot to slowly simmer all day. It will be there to soothe grouchy people this evening when I'm late getting home. Now I sit here in underwear, waiting for my most favorite pair of pants to HURRY UP...PLEASE in the dryer. My hair is done, my makeup done as much as it will be.

But I've forgotten something, it's tickling at my brain furiously but I don't know what it is.

Weekend's over...

Interesting day. Went to services, we had a guest speaker who had a sense of humor. Then tonight we had a singing that ran waaaaay longer than was anticipated, especially by me. My back is killing me from the hard benches. I was glad I went, we had a wonderful time, but I was glad to get home too. The roads were already getting a little slick. I'll have to remember to get up earlier to have time to thaw out the car before work.

Then I was kind of mad when we got home. The new show I liked, Dresden Files was on tonight but I missed almost all of it, saw maybe the last 15 minutes and still don't understand what was going on.

And I'm hungry but I can't find anything to eat unless I cook it which I don't want to do.

I found a new show I love!

I found a new love tonight! The Dresden Files is my kind of show. I'm still learning names but I do remember that Paul Blackthorne plays the lead character Harry Dresden. The show is supposed to be based on a series of novels but I've never even heard of them!

I'm so tired of the cold and wind. I'm more of a summer person, everything just seems worse in the cold winter.

I dread work tomorrow, Mondays are always busy.

Ghost Rider and preview of Spider-Man...

The new Ghost Rider movie is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone. Well...except for my husband but then he has no imagination. Nicolas Cage was perfect for the part...and I did not think he would be! I don't know who played the younger Johnny Blaze but he was beautiful. I didn't really like Roxanne...mostly because I know a woman named Roxanne, who even looks a little like this one but older, and she is a pain in the ass. The guy who played Blackheart looked familiar but I can't place him.

We got to the theatre late but walked in for the last preview which was, of course, Spider-Man 3. I'd seen one before but this one seemed a little different. Can't wait to see it. Love the black suit though I know it won't last.

Reruns again...

It really sucks that both Smallville and Supernatural will be reruns next week. Last night's preview said the next new Supernatural would be March 15, a month away. I don't know how they expect to keep viewers when they keep doing that. I'll watch the show anyway but that's because I'm obsessed with Dean and Sam. And they still don't advertize! Sometimes I wonder if they don't want the show to fail.

I'm hoping today will whiz by quickly. I still don't feel rested. But I have Monday and Tuesday off so maybe I can fix that. It'll be the last days off, besides Sundays, until late March or April.
