Post number...3!!

I'm a roll with the posts today.

First and foremost, even though we don't really talk anymore I wanted to congratulate poopy_macpoop  on the birth of his new baby girl, Zatanna (I think I spelled it right...). Welcome to parenthood!!

Secondly, I spent a good six hours at Amber's house today and got some cute pics of the kids. Olivia is a DOLL and as far as I'm concerned, that girl can do no wrong. Of course, her parents say differently. She'll always have a special place in her Auntie's heart though. Amber had her hair in pigtails today!!! OMG. Cuteness overload!!! I will totally post pictures after Mark gets home and the kiddies are in bed.

That's is for now. "American Idol" is on so I'm gonna get off here. :oP

P.S. My throat really hurts today. Ug. I DO NOT want to get sick.

it's been one of those days.

Contrary to popular belief, even when you are medicated it's still possible for you to have a day where you're just not feeling so...happy. I was fine until around 5 or 6 this evening. That's when I started feeling rather blue. :c( I dunno what's wrong. I just feel like crying--a whole lot. ABC.com has this really cool thing where you can watch past recent episodes of all their primetime shows. Since I only just finished Season 1 of Grey's Anatomy, I decided to watch the first two episodes of Ugly Betty. I cried during each of them. I dunno why. I'm in just one of those moods.

By the way, though, Ugly Betty is ab-fab. I love it. It's just too bad that it comes on the same time as Survivor: Cook Islands. Good thing ABC shows full-length episodes. It's going to be my only way I can keep up with Lost once I start school again.

Speaking of school, I have one more week of freedom from 5pm to 9:20pm. Starting the 16th, it's full time at Sanford-Brown for me. I haven't decided if I'm excited yet. I have orientation this coming Saturday. Maybe that will get me more into the mood.

I'm still working on getting a new job. Nothing has come through though. I broke down and applied at Express-Scripts again, but I doubt they'll ever hire me back. It would be nice to be making that kind of money, especially since Winter is coming and that's the slow time for tattoo artists. I don't expect Mark will be making as much as he has the past couple of weeks. Here's hoping though!

My nose piercing is healing very well, except for the skin around it is dry thanks to good ol' Dial soap. The actual piercing is still kind of sore when I move the stud around, but other than that, I haven't had any problems. It's defiantely one of the best healing piercings I've had. My eyebrow took over a year to heal properly. It was only after I had that bout of Shingles and had to be on antibiotics did it stop being gross and gooey. Funny thing is, no one has really noticed my nose. It was only after I told Kate that she realized it was pierced at work. Mark, Aidan and I stopped by my Dad's Tuesday night and he didn't say anything about it. My parents would definately say something. I guess the stud isn't as noticable!

Well, I'm thinking of playing some Animal Crossing: Wide World on my DS before I hit the hay. I really need to cheer up.

Here's my List...

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as new year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Tonight's episode of "House."

All I gots to say is "Ooooh Dang. That sucks."

In other news, I've been walking around my apartment in heels all afternoon. I'm trying to look more like a run-way model and less like an ogre on stilts. I dunno if it's working. I just gotta get through my interview tomorrow.


So my interview yesterday was a bust. I arrived at United at like 1:50 and was lucky enough to actually get one of the Visitor's parking spots in the front. The past two times I had been there, I had been stuck parking all the way in the back and hiking a mile to get to the building. I should have seen that getting a good parking spot was a bad sign.

Like I said, I got there at 1:50 and the lady who interviewed me shows up 10 minutes later. She takes me in a room off of the foyer and preceeds to be the most impoliet person I have ever interviewed with before. Even worse than the Terrence guy I interviewed with last week. She interupts me, asks me if that's "really" how I spelled my name (why would I lie?), rudely asks me if anyone even explained to me what I'd actually be doing if I got the job, and at seven minutes past two, tells me the interview is over. She didn't even shake my hand! She told me that I'd hear from them in 5 to 7 days. I'm not going to hold my breath.

Afterwards, though, I had a really great time at the park with Jimmy, kallbrier, Mark, Chris, and Donna (with Danyell's friends showing up a little later, and Rob getting there a little before we left). Aidan absolutely loved it and even zonked out for a little bit before we ate.

AND I HAVE PICTURES!!! See the cuteness!Collapse )

I have absolutely nothing to do today and I'm looking forward to it!!!


I swear, the new neighbors are getting on my damn nerves. It's 6:30am and they're stomping around downstairs and talking loudly in the stairwell. SOME PEOPLE ARE STILL SLEEPING!

On top of that, some stupid dog was barking this morning and woke me up. Arg.

Aw. Now I'm depressed.

I finished Season 3 and now I just finished Episode 1 of Season 4 and it just made me sad. Well, I started feeling sad at the end of Season 3 because of Cyril O'Reily. Now I feel sorry for Guillame Tarrant and how Wangler stole his shoes. I know it's just a TV show, but sometimes meaness just gets to me, no matter where it is or in what form it takes shape.

*yawn* I'm tired. Mark is suppose to be bringing me some medium hot wings home from work, so I'm staying up for that. Then, I'll probably hit the hay.

I think I'm done with Oz for tonight. Maybe it won't hit me as hard if I'm not as tired.

I'm awake.

Mark came to bed about an hour ago and woke me up to talk to me. Since I was already up, I decided to actually get out of bed, instead of going back to sleep.

I didn't go to work yesterday. Mark's back was hurting him pretty bad (don't worry, j4d3, he can still do your tatt tonight!) to where he couldn't even move. I was concerned that if he was unable to get up and get around easily, that he wouldn't be able to take care of Aidan. Mum hasn't been feeling well either, so I couldn't call her. I had to stay home and take care of both of my boys. Mark ended up taking a Vicodin, which helped for awhile, but eventually it worn off. Poor guy!

Anywho, Kyle and Cuvi came over last night, so that Mark could get pictures of their tattoos for his portfolio. Here they are...Collapse )

...now it's time for me to get ready for work.



Simpson, Lachey Officially Separate
Nov 24, 6:35 AM EST

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES -- Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, who turned mid-level music careers into Hollywood superstardom by celebrating their marriage in an MTV reality show and television specials, are calling it quits after months of persistent breakup rumors.

The couple announced their separation Wednesday.

"After three years of marriage, and careful thought and consideration, we have decided to part ways," they said in a joint statement released by their publicists. "This is the mutual decision of two people with an enormous amount of respect and admiration for each other."

Calls seeking further comment from publicists Meredith O' Sullivan and Rob Shuter were not immediately returned early Thursday.

The couple have been dogged by rumors that their marriage was in trouble — Us Weekly reported that they split in an Oct. 17 issue — but Simpson, 25, and Lachey, 32, brushed the speculation aside and insisted they were still together.

In the December-January issue of Teen People, which went on newsstands earlier this month, Simpson denied rumors that the marriage was kaput.

"Hopefully mine and Nick's story will continue for the rest of our lives, like what we vowed, through sickness and in health," said Simpson, who famously professed that she remained a virgin until she got married.

The couple wed in October 2002, back when they were known simply as pop singers. But Simpson hadn't achieved the multiplatinum successes of peers Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, while Lachey was a member of the boy band 98 Degrees, which sold far fewer albums than such acts as 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys.

The couple's reality show, "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," which chronicled their daily lives in a new California home, turned them into stars. The show, which ran for three seasons, made Simpson infamous for her dippy-blonde moments, including the time she confused the tuna she was eating for chicken, or when she eschewed Buffalo wings because "I don't eat buffalo."

Simpson's star status has begun to outshine Lachey's.

She played Daisy Duke in this summer's hit movie "The Dukes of Hazzard," and she endorses "Dessert," a beauty line that includes flavored body creams. Lachey, whose solo album has had disappointing sales, appeared in some episodes of the sitcom "Charmed."

Besides appearing in "Newlyweds," the couple entertained U.S. troops earlier this year in the ABC special "Nick & Jessica's Tour of Duty," and last year they hosted the ABC variety special "Nick & Jessica's Family Christmas." A coffee table book, "Jessica Simpson I Do: Achieving Your Dream Wedding," also was released last year.

I thought so...

You scored as Hermione Granger. You're one intelligent witch, but you have a hard time believing it and require constant reassurance. You are a very supportive friend who would do anything and everything to help her friends out.
