it's time i posted a REAL post. about what's been going on in my pathetic little life. well, it's not really THAT pathetic..i like it. anyhow, on the heels of others, i think i have some sort of flu. but that's all i'm saying about it, cause really, you can't be sick anymore, someone else always has to chime in with "oh, I AM TOO..." (note: i don't mean you diana...). anyhow, it's been with me for a week at least and besides i got it from my mom, who has it may not be flu...but like my mom, i don't whine and get on with my life (ie- the play) hmmmm..maybe ignoring sickness isn't the best thing to do...but screw it, i'm no good to my show while i'm in bed.

anyhow, my aunt and uncle from florida just left this morning...5 am to be exact..i was the lucky bugger that had to take them off to Peoria. it was no biggie, i'm a night owl anyhow, i had two movies to keep me awake...well ok, i finished Frailty this morning...err..afternoon...i DID go to bed at 6 am. anyhow, i'm fresh out of movies...maybe i ought to get some more, now that i broke down and *cringe* paid my late fee to The Man. it's that Catholic guilt, i tell was eating me up.

and the show went on the lookout for a well as more random pics cause britt can't think of a damn thing to say. hmmm..maybe i should take the little yelling princess' advice and rent The Big Lebowski.

things that save me from a life of pissiness

1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice.
3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
4. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.
5. Finish all your sentences with "in accordance with the prophecy."
6. Ask people what sex they are. Laugh hysterically after they answer.
7. Specify that your drive through order is "to go".
8. Sing along at the opera.
9. Go to a poetry recital and ask why the poems don't rhyme.
10. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you're not in the mood.
11. Have your coworkers address you by your wrestling name, Rock Hard Kim.
12. When the money comes out the ATM, scream "I won!", I won! 3rd time this week!!!!!"
13. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling "run for your lives, they're loose!!"
14. Tell your children over dinner. "due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go."

NOTE: i forgot, that's my sister's husband behind her...he blends in DAMMIT!!!!
since diana wrote one, i should too...but don't think the "Things That Bug Me" list isn't coming soon as well...

things i live for

1) people that are polite even if they don't know you run into someone, and they're apologetic or if they shake your hand when they meet you

2) anything Star Wars

3) coming home from work and watching a bunch of movies (i'm a huge movie geek..the more the better)

4) my mom's scalloped potatoes

5) taking pictures of random things

6) thunderstorms

7) backrubs

8) drinking with my family ('s the funnest ever)

9) thrift stores

10) my online friends and co-workers...they're the best when i'm down and out

there really needs to be a 24 hour video store.

i apologize (or maybe not). i was a mess yesterday. a HUGE mess. i repressed it most the day...but you know those days where things just don't work out? it just doesn't feel right. i think (well, i know) it's because i'm stressed out due to the play coming up (and for any of you who have a sarcastic "aww poor baby.." for that, kiss have no clue what my world of the theatre is like..or anyone's). our rehearsals haven't been your standard orthodox rehearsals. though we're still doing well. AND i've never been so devastatingly broke in my life (yea yea, i know "join the club"...but SHUT IT..this is my blog). and my mom...well, she's always going to have me on alert for stress. at last night's rehearsal, i wasn't top notch. it was a bad rehearsal for me, and that upset. i put acting #1 in my life..which explains why i take time (which = $$$) off of work for it. all i wanted to do afterward was go have a few beers with my co-workers. but i only got one in, and they kept giving me a hard time cause i showed up late....geez, i'm dedicated to my craft..sorry. then they KEPT giving me a hard time..and usually ok, no big deal...but with all the shit going on (i guess) and the crappy day that was surmounting me anyhow...ok, the repressing was over. i got pissy. i didn't choose it, it just happened. i wish to God more than anything i could stop this feeling; i'd live a lot happier life. so, anyhow, i did what i should...i just got in my car and went straight home and went to bed. i feel a lot better today. no sense being around my loved ones if i'm pissy. i think i found the (temporary) cure for pissiness...sleep.

in the words of b, Go salaí na gráinneoga cealgrúnacha do chuid infheistíochtaí. it's so true when you're dealing with damn dirty bookstore customers. by the way, none of that gaelic stands for bookstore customers. speaking of Gaelic, since b is so hell bent that i put a curse on cyn...i'll send something nice her way:
Go mbíodh biseach ort gan mhoill agus Bain taithneamh as an deireadh seachtaine cyn!

there..happy?? no? ah well too bad..she should get to feeling better in no time now.

Dear Glenlivet Scotch,
you are a dirty bastard. my encounter with you on Sunday night was anything but cordial. you talked smooth at first, but then proceeded to bitch slap my liver around as well as my chemical balance to where i night's end...silly ASS drunk. i tried to unsuccessfully drown and kill you with beer, but alas, no luck. i thought i would never see you again, Glenlivet, thought you had left me forever, but no....oh NO. you returned the next day...early AM. all the nightmares we shared together were relived...with the Porcelian God present. dammit Glen, i told you, i don't worship the Porcelian God, i'm Catholic...but i did...all day. *sigh* i am so ashamed. never again i will see you Glenlivet..never. and if we run into one another at a bar.....look away....just look away.


ps- fuck off

i dunno what it is, but the last few days i've felt like shit and have been running to the bathroom every 5 seconds (sorry, but it IS my blog and i can go on and on how something gives me the trots if i want). i'm thinking it's that Mexican liquer (if you've chatted with me in the past few days, you'll know i've tried to get to the bottom of that), or those taquitos i had yesterday...oooo...i think THOSE did a number on me....or it could be this damn spider bite i got...

and that nelly song is really starting to play way too much on the much i'm starting to like it. and what right does HE have to add an extra "R" in "Here" ???

hehe..i have to admit though..i love the genius of the line that is "Wan' a lil bit of uh uh and a lil bit of UH UH"

Saturday, September 07, 2002

and now, just a taste of what went down last Sunday...

my brother Robin, my mom, my sister Holly, and my dad.
more pictures coming soon...maybe a gallery...who knows? what do YOU guys want?
i say "bitch" way too often lately....
i added diana, B and gus to the links...go check them out...NOW keemosabe!

Friday, September 06, 2002

forget what i said earlier...i was pissy..and that was dumb of me to not realize that writing in a blog is cathartic for whatever..i continue on...if i'm pissy i'll take a nap

The Friday Five

1. What is your biggest pet peeve? Why?

when people give me shit or tease me over stuff that REALLY bugs me...but they keep prodding on about it.
(or when i say "have a nice day" and they don't say "you too" heh)

2. What irritating habits do you have?

i can never spell "the" or "like" always ends up "teh" and "liek"..of course, the fact i can't type might have somethign to do with it.

3. Have you tried to change the irritating habits or just let them be?

i let them be...they're really no big deal. having good grammar is probably more important to have than stupid random mispellings.

4. What grosses you out more than anything else? Why?

smelly people. deodorant is not that expensive

5. What's one thing can you never see yourself doing that other people do?

killing a person.

Thursday, September 05, 2002

i don't get it...i haven't posted in 2 days or 3 whatever and i really don't have an urge anymore. seriously. and i'm always so damn pissy..and no one wants to read that...seriously. don't give me that "we want to read ALL your emotions" bs, i sure as hell don't wanna read everyone's emotions (so i usually don't). i've put in my year..i'm out. maybe my mind will change soon..maybe it won't. i don't want to have a blog while i'm pissy.

Tuesday, September 03, 2002

business has captured britt's soul. tonight i had to DJ at chalise's reception..which went pretty well...i really didn't have to do too many DJ-like things. fun times were had. and the beer was FREE!!! oh, and aunt dee dee suprised us (well all of us cept pete, cause he had to get her at the airport) today with a visit. she's staying til monday. but that was cool, she, my mom and dad went to my dad's 35th reunion tonight, so i'm happy my mom got out finally and had fun. so i still have yet to put together that collage for my mom and dad...go to bed, get up early...for some reason, i forgot why..make another collage with holly i believe..go to the A.C.T. board meeting at 2 pm (and try not to get TOO drunk), go meet holly to help set up the party..then finally!!!! party time at 6.....whew...see you all later...
