Brain? Where did you go to? When will you be back?

Not going to be around much for the next week. I'll pop in when I can, but I really need to get packing and stuff. I might unplug the Home-bound Time Sucking Demon completely during this time. It's Powers of Eville have been multiplied by the introduction of the UT2k3 demo and its resulting problems.

Work is the most insane it's ever been. I'm taking Friday and Monday off, further compressing my time. My chances of popping in here during breaks are slim.

Eman stopped by last night. He really WAS sick this weekend. Poor guy. It's almost a relief, though... I was worried he might have been exhibiting the signs of severe clinical depression, when he was just in a blue funk with a nasty stomach bug :P

They're ripping up the sidewalk again. Jeebus. The Inspector says everything should be fine by Saturday (Big Move Day). Meanwhile, the Pink Panther remains silent on the issue.

Still need to rent a truck (what size? 14 ft and do two trips?), get phone moved over, DSL moved over, address changed with PO and DMV, boxes packed and stored in the garage. Today at 2p I go to inspect the floors. I was kinda pissed that the floor guys left my door unlocked yesterday, so I think they're trying extra hard to win me back over.

I'm moving so fast today that I'm tripping over myself. I'm an adrenaline junky, I really am. Give me a deadline and I'll push it back 'til the last minute and go into hyperdrive. I can't believe I've barely started packing. I can't believe my boss is giving me these unimportant time-consuming things to do today. I can't believe I slept through my alarm because of that wacky dream.

I had a dream this morning about Steve Tyler telling me that my pantylines were, y'know, really bad, which later became this long movie in which I just wanted to go have a cigarette and I met Steven Spielberg and got the lead in the movie which was supposed to be about this young sexy chick and Steve Tyler but turned out really to be about me the whole time and it was nearly over by the time I got to the beginning at the end. Yeah.

Dream Steve Tyler's a decent kisser, just for the record. I'd thought he'd have been better, really.

Then the floor guy called and I skeedaddled to work. I'm still feeling rather fuzzy around the edges.

Happy Birthday

Two people I wouldn't know if I go to Tortonto! I'm truly blessed for having taken that chance. I wish you every happiness this coming year and always! *hugs!* :D

And because I may not get the chance tomorrow...

Happy Almost Birthday

You can stop getting older now. Thank you for complying with this request. I hope to insert something witty, thought-provoking and inspiring here when I have a brain. Until then, *hugs!*

    That Aerosmith song "Pink" (in my head) which was one of the songs in the movie about the movie
rubbah and horns

The Bad, the Good, and the Better.

Bad stuff:
Tearing up sidewalk again
...Inspector says it'll be done by Saturday
...guys actually doing the work disagree

Floors STILL not done
...have to go back at 8am tomorrow
House is dirty, dirty, dirty
...when will I clean it? will I clean it?
...painting? hahahahaha-- you slay me!

Work insane far behind I can see my own arse tired at end of day that packing is laughable

Spent most of my evening working out DSL for new place
...still not completely ironed out
No broadband for 2-3 weeks
...need modem :/
Verizon decided to send me DSL even though I didn't ask them too
...still have to iron that one out
Spent many hours updating my system to get UT2k3 to work online
...when I have no time to spare (bad ldy)
No good fix for UT2k3 re: zonealarm-- had to install another firewall
...not that it matters, without DSL
Truck has to be returned by 4p Saturday friends are late risers
Exhausted takes quite a lot to knock me out like this
...insult to injury at this point
Not packed at all

Good stuff:
Sidewalk will be pretty!
Floors will be pretty!
Phone will be switched Friday!
Truck will be picked up Friday evening!

"Will be's" don't do much for this live-in-the-moment girl ;P

Eman's returning to his old self and sent me emails today
...they were just forwards, but gigglesome
Got a message on my answering machine from a friend's little daughter inviting me to dinner
..."will you come over and eat pork chops with Mommy and Uncle Mike?" awwwwww!
Had sushi for lunch
...only supermarket sushi, but hey, it was surprisingly good today!
I have friends who love me, and whom I adore
...soon they can all come to my home :)
I've got UT2k3 on preorder
...and no DSL will give me time for muchly-needed practicing!
Worse could happen. Much worse.
...I am truly very blessed.
Someone, out of the blue, just told me I was one of the most stunningly beautiful women he'd ever laid eyes on
...whoa! *blush* I'm speechless!
I'm going to sleep shortly
...for rilla! WOOT!
Past performance shows that things will get done, one way or another
...and while past performance is not indicative of future gains, I have faith :)

In other news, from Legend of Zelda, to Super Mario Bros, to their live cover of Pink Floyd's Time to this... I never know what to expect from Mr. Bungle.
...and I like that.

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who don't run away quickly enough.
