There's a praying mantis in my living room. I don't know what to think of that.
I'm pretty sure that I just need a boy to come over and take it outside. I've done a little googling and I believe that they might try to bite or sting, but for an average adult it should just feel like a pinch.

Today is my last day of work. I don't actually have anything to do. I'm sure that I could find things if I asked, but I don't actually want to do anything. I'd kind of really like to not be here. I did just find out that I messed something up in the system pretty bad, but I guess it's not something that I can fix. I feel bad, but what I did was in an effort to make things go more smoothly.
The road to hell... right?
I shaved my arms last night and since my arm hair is so light I always forget just how much of it I have. Today I'm dealing with small bumps of irritation, which should be cured with some exfoliation and time, as well as many spots that I seem to have missed. I guess that's what happens when your hair sticks right to your skin when it's wet. I'm not even really sure why I did it. Sure, the blonde hair that I can see bothers me, but I know that it's not something that anyone else notices.
Last night I had every intention of watching Obama's speech, but then I ended up on the phone with a friend I don't talk to often enough and going out to eat with other friends. I have no doubt that it is already online for me to view when I get time this weekend. I'm actually a little more interested in what McCain has to say so I can pull some more concrete reasoning as to why I do not want him as my next president.
Anyone reading this who is not currently registered to vote, please remedy that. Even if you don't agree with me I think the tiny little voice that we have with our ballots is so much bigger than we give it credit for, and we all need to be using it.

I got my bridesmaid's dress fitted today. It's costing as much as the dress because of the boning inside the dress. It looks a million times better than it did 2 sizes too big for me. Imagine that.
The seamstress is putting boobs in it for me since I don't want to wear a bra. It's nothing terribly major, just pads where there would be empty space or serious alterations otherwise.
I'm tempted to go tanning before the wedding if I get my loans right away and can do it. The darker skin with the navy dress and blonde hair I think would be really awesome. But if I can't start it next week I'm worried that it would look too red or something the day of.
Anyone have any tips?

I'm tipsy, but I'm posting anyway. I tend to spell better when I've got a drink or two in me because I'm terrified that I'm going to spell things terribly and people can tell I'm tipsy just from that.
I think I'm currently ruining my roommate's friend's night by hanging out in her room while they are playing dice. He's definitely got a thing for her, and I mistakenly walked in on what might've been a moment just a bit ago. They should have known that I was coming back when I was talking about a Sesame Street clip that was on YouTube and then I jumped up and ran toward my room, duh I'm grabbing my laptop to show them, right?
I think I pissed off my other roommate when I told her that it offends me when she uses the word, "gay" as a universal negative. She insisted that she's stubborn and not going to change because it bothers me, or something to that effect. I don't remember the exact verbage, but I definitely know that she said she's not going to change. We haven't seen her since, it's been like 30 minutes, and normally she's in here back and forth a bunch.
I think we're playing Scrabble now, yay!

If I wanted to be here any less I think it would be physically impossible for me to be in this building. Senioritis is kicking in hard.
Yesterday was the worst birthday I can remember having.
Last evening I got the best gift I’ve ever gotten for my birthday.
There is a homeless guy who hangs out by my new place who seems to be a little bit in love with me.
I really wish that Aaron wasn’t going to Outside Lands this weekend so we could hang out again sooner. I also really love that he’s into Outside Lands though, and am enormously jealous that I’m not going myself.
For not having anything to do here I’m really not too inspired to write either. It’s a little odd, ‘cause I have lots that I could write about. I guess it’s more that I don’t want to start writing only to get the email that I’m waiting on saying that I can actually do the one thing that’s not going to make me want to blow my brains out. That sentence was a bit more dramatic than I’d intended it to be.
The above mentioned homeless man asked me to marry him and has at least 5 teeth missing. Interestingly enough, I don’t think that I told him a flat out, “No.” I may leave my digital camera somewhere for Holly to grab the next time she watches a scene play out with he and I, since he talks to me literally in front of my house, and hangs out about 20 yards away at the bus stop.
I think that my goal for next week will be three full posts about specific topics by the end of the week. I know that I’m not going to be too busy, unless they start creating things just for me to be able to do them, which would really take more of everyone else’s time and probably not be such a great idea.
Ok, when I’m on time to work I’ve left by now, and yet the email that I’m waiting on still isn’t here. I don’t think that I should have to do this work now, right?

Happy Birthday to Mallory!
I hope that you heard my phone call at midnight and smiled at least! I hope it did not make Howie bark and wake you up though.
I just said goodbye at the end of a first date. I really like talking to him and I'm very interested to see how it goes after he and I aren't so busy and can see each other again.

It's not even 10 in the morning and today is already the worst day of the week.

Moving this weekend was interesting.
In some ways I'm already wishing that I had just found a one bedroom. My new place is pretty cool though, an old Victorian with a front room of windows. We found a pin on the ledge for Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, so we've named the room Clementine.
My roommates have people over far more often than I'd like. Last night and just about half an hour ago there was a completely unexpected ring of the doorbell. Currently the unannounced guest has taken over the only TV with cable and my DVD player with some ridiculous anime. I'm a little bit disturbed by it and as soon as I finish this I think I'll work on organizing my room.
I'd really wanted to be done with it already, but on Sunday I dropped a large shelf on my foot and ended up in the ER for a few hours. My foot swelled pretty quickly, and ended up looking like I had half a baseball under my skin. Since then I haven't been able to carry things up and down stairs, which makes it difficult to move things from one upstairs apartment to another.
I bribed my brothers to move the last of my stuff on Tuesday, so now it's all here, but I still can't move around too well, so it's not put away at all.
I guess whatever the anime was is some sort of series because there's annoying Japanese singing and credits on at the moment. I think I'll put on some music and clean my room.

I just took a quiz to find out what kind of dog I should get. I don't have any intention of actually getting a dog, but Mallory's excitement for Howie makes me think about it a bit. The results told me nothing. I was looking for a bit of a breed list and I got a paragraph telling me that toy breeds are what I should look for. Well duh!
That's not what inspired me to post though. When I got to the end, since it wasn't actually a dog site it suggested other quizzes that I should take. One of them was, "Are you over your Ex?" Is it just me, or if you're even asking yourself that are you pretty much not? Or at least if you're taking a quiz to figure it out are you not?
Just something that crossed my mind when reading it.
I saw The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants today. It was marvelous. Hopefully there will be a bit more of a review about it later. I make no promises though, there's a pretty cool scholarship essay due at the end of the month.

Oh man do I need a break. So many changes are right around the corner, and I'm anxious and a little afraid of them.
I got approved for a new apartment that I want last week, and we'll get officially approved on Tuesday. If for some reason we don't get it, I think I'm going to help Holly and Angela find a place for the two of them, and look into other options for myself. There's actually a house full of guys that I'm interested in, so I might e-mail them tomorrow for the heck of it.
I'm currently looking for a bit of a project bike for my dad and I to fix up in the next few weeks so I can ride to school. That's one reason that I'm also hoping to change my schedule to have all of my classes on Tuesday and Thursday. I already know that I am so not going to want to get up and ride every morning. Any encouragement from others would be greatly appreciated.
I also am trying a certain project this semester that will require me to buy some new clothes at the end of the semester. I'll try to write more when it's not 1 am.

I hate my mom's wireless router. It's terrible. I have to reset either that, or my AirPort about every five minutes. This does not seem like something that I should have to do. I have not used Wilma on any other wireless connection yet, so I am seriously hoping that it is not actually a problem with her.
I guess I will find out the next time that I'm around one.
I got the apartment that I wanted!!!
If you would like my address let me know, I like mail. I'm actually going to try to be sending out some letters to people soon anyway, so some of you will have my address. I make no promises though. I got forever stamps for a reason people.
I will have a way better room for the same price, with two awesome girls in a Victorian house. I want visitors!
I will try to take some pictures as soon as we move in, because this place really is awesome. We should be able to move in next weekend. They started painting it today, so it'll be ready for people on 08/08/08. As soon as I get specific confirmation from the owner that he's ok with our credit check I will set up to get our cable and utilities set up. Good thing I don't really care about the opening ceremonies, right?
I'm happy that I'll be able to spend very little money this semester because it means that there will be money available for things that are not yet planned. Hopefully awesome things that are not yet planned.
I'm currently listening to a cover album by a band called the morning benders. I'm enjoying it. It was a free download here so if you're at all interested in free new stuff you should go check it out!
