Gas Prices

so gas is 3.09 or 3.05 now. 3 was my cut off so guess i'm not going anywhere anymore.


gas was 22 cents cheaper 2 hours before we bought it today.

Internet and Heat

being without internet sucks. it's hot too. i ventured to the union to get cool and to get internet.

the dresser is not put together. it's kind of a shady dresser.

Monday, August 29, 2005


wow. i was ready to do work. it didn't work out. first dave woudnt give me my book back. it was interesting or something. then we got timmy to help move a fridge upstairs. then ended up cooking on jesse's grill but pb wanted it cleaned. well jesse took that as meaning a hardcore cleannig and wasted overa  half hr cleaning. then it took forever to cook it and then forever to eat it and it was magically 2 hours later. then i went to timmy's to get some books he had for dave. also right before i got timmy we were just about to start putting the dresser together. well now that's all over the floor. i'm too tired todo it tonight. ugh

note the dave and pb usage here. that's jus twhat came to me.
it's like i have to do actual unpacking w/o the internet working
went toclass. my feet got stained from my shoes from walking through the grass that was wet. i'm still trying to figure out how to get my feet back to normal. my internet keeps breaking so after class i was forced to nap instead of doing my homework.

classes tomorrow.
dave's computer broke. we dont know what's wrong with ti. it kept shutting down. but not from overheating. then all this text was going across the screen over his game.

Capital Letters

I realized I'm the only one of my friends that doesn't use capital letters when posting. I should start. It's so annoying though. I'm not used to it.
i hate when i have someone elses computer hijacked because I can't comment in people's LJ w/o logging theother person out

i put together the tv stand, night stand, and coffee table. i should have started with my desk. i want to at least do that before sleep. we will see
desk, tv stand, end table with lamp, coffee table, dresser have been purchased.
i started putting together the end table with lamp. i'm on teh next to the last step. it's weird and they tell u to do stuff in teh wrong order but the last 2 screws going into the base can't go in based on the crookedness of the support. so i'm decidign what to do before i attach the lamp.


I've been slacking at posting because I haven't set up my computers yet. I've also been slacking at taking my daily pictures. I have taken some, but I haven't loaded any.

We're heading to office max so I can buy a desk. My dad carried 2 TVs in from the car today for me but I need one upstairs. The room is a lot cleaned up but there's a lot of work to be done. Gravester and JCal might be coming over tonight. I want to clean up a little more before they get here. But as long as my computer is set up a lot will be cleaned up already. Well, actually, I work tomorrow night so I want most of it cleaned up and put together before classes. I have class Monday at 10. I think I will wake up early and buy some books before class.

Wednesday, August 24, 2005


i'm quite the posting slacker.
i found a computer desk i like at office max. my stomach feels weird. i feel like i should be helping out more and doing more things and more comforting. I sewed a stuffed animal back to health today. Next the bathroom needs cleaning. Most other stuff is done. I want to know why the death notice is in the paper but not on-line.

my phone broke earlier today. it died mid call and the screen went out on the inside and the outside one was stuck on 24 seconds. We put it in the freezer. then it worked but only for about 6 more hours. I tried the reezer again but not for long enough. i didnt want ot leave it in overnight. now it gets stuck on teh screen "downloading mode" it did that eralier today too.
i bought fried green tomatoes dvd tonight. otherwise my walmart/target trip was uneventful. i want a computer desk. we also need another tv stand. There are only 13 boxes left ot unpack. they would be unpacked if there was a computer desk. A dresser would also help. I realized our apt doesnt have ceiling lights. that sucks.

week 5 of matching isn't going as well. a lot of people are forgetting or not having the right clothes.
i coulg barely get my shoe on this morning. My blister hurt so bad. It felt better in my New Balance. I did walk at lunch.  I also went to the model shop and did a lot of walking around there.  It still hurt but not as bad.  I worked late today.

My final presentation went alright.  It kind of went better and worse than I expected.

Sunday, August 14, 2005


my mom laughed at us today. cuz we were hitting apples into the woods with a wiffleball bat and having so much fun with it. i'm still sore from doing that 2 days ago. i got this huge blister on my left big toe. next time i weill wear my new balance and not my sandals. the blister skin was all pealed and buched up before i found it. i actually took off my shoe in teh grass and then still played w/o looking at it. (timmy was pitching to me and i was hitting them). that's probably the first time in 20 years i was outside in the grass in my barefeet. the blister still stings constantly. that hs to be my biggest blister ever. also i practically never wear sandals (granted these sandals dont even show my toes.  even with the blister it was tons of fun. carl came over too. i think next time we will buy another bat. we only have 1 good one. we even shook lots of apples from the tree when we ran out. we had a heaping 5 gallon bucket full, then about half bucket full, then heaping bucket full and about 15 extra that wouldnt fit in.

this has got to be the best year with birhtday presents and my birthday is still over a month away. first i get a really nice tool set and a slip (to replace my 2nd grade slip) then today i got silk stalkings season 1 dvds. (6 dvd set for 22 episodes)  o i watched the pilot earlier tonight. such a good show. i dont know how i'm going to do any school work this year with all these tv shows i have to watch.
i matched my shirt to my nailpolish today all by myself. i'm very proud.

Friday, August 12, 2005

i just painted my nails. not cuz it's a pretty color. actually it's ugly. but because i came across the nailpolish while hunting for my pizza hut name tag (to pack it in the same place as my apron). it's called golden khaki.

krinin's ring

how pretty

(i hope she doesnt mind i put it here.)


a little over a week ago our 29 year old microwave broke. it broke the same way 10 years ago. 10 years ago we bought a new microwave to repalce it and then grandma said to hit it so we did and it worked. so we returned the micrwoave.  this time we tried hitting it. it ididnt' work. so we bought a new one. put the old out out in teh trash. timmy woke up at 6am today to go steal it. he was goign to give it to sara. well then he hit it around a little. and it works now. mommy wants it back. she said it was 10 years left in it. but the new one is better.  she said but this is like burying a dog that isn't dead.  so we will have to see if she swaps them out.

i was eating ice cream last night and my jaw had that quick pain where i flinch and fling my hand to my jaw.  and ice cream isn't.  i wonder about this jaw surgery. today it happened again when i had a little roasted potato bite in my mouth.


so i took off the side of my computer and got that piece that fell off the case to make the floppy drive look pretty. it was blocking that little flap that lets u get to 2 usb ports. it was hard work to do this. my corner where the tower is doenst have much room. the only screwdriver up here had a long handle.  then i got cut by metal parts. then hard to get screws back in. i got a mirror to help me find the holes. but i dropped that. it's still in the corner.  but now my fan doesnt pretend it has asthma. i guess when i was throwign about the little wires it kept them away from the fan when i put the side back on.

Memory Card Troubles

My card reader is broken for my card.  I wish Jesse kept his card reader that broke for his card. then we could swap. mine works for the other 4.

to do lists

I made a to do list for my evening tonight. I underestimated everything and it's over 3 hours worth of planning and I didn't linclude eating or aim in that.  How much do you think I will get done?

I have started packing. But my start is worse than before because i unpacked a container to pack. My bed is so messy I won't even turn around.
i carpooled w/ my dad today but got a ride home from someone else. he's still not home.

Sunday, August 7, 2005

i'm so mad . i bought pb 2 shirts for 20 bucks each (that was 50% off) and today at the store those same shirts were 9 each.

i'm wearing white to kennywood.  this probably isn't a good idea

Wednesday, August 3, 2005


i'm tan for the first time in my life.  i've been tan a few days now. i dont knwo if i mentioned it on here or not. i'm still paler than other poeple when they aren't tan though. but this is awesome for me. i have freckles on my arms too.  i did say earlier how i dont burn anymore or i'm immune or something i forget. i should find it and link it here but i 'm lazy. i know it was said after going to kennywood on july 23.

and off topic  my boss's last name used to be "horney" but his wife made him change it. it's now horne. his brother is still "horney" tho and has kids w/ that last name.
i want to start packing for school so my room is neater and so i can be productive. but i dont know what to pack. i need to organize a few things and go through boxes w/ stuff in them cuz some of that i dont want to take to school.

i did just put my clean laundry away. i swear there was more in there than there has been all summer. but then i ralized that's cuz i wore a lot of tank tops on teh shipyard tour and they dont get hung up.

Nail Polish

You'd think with express finish nailpolish that i could wait until it dries before typing.

i already messed up my pinky nail twice.

btw this is the first time i've painted my nails since freshman year of college. and really that was when other people pained my nails. i could only find some of my nail polish. all my better stuff is still somewhere. so i had to paint my nails this dull purple.
my indecisiveness made my decision for me becuase now i dont have enough time to get the rpi grad school application in to start in january.
btw week 3 of matching is still on strong.
our 29 yr old microwave is broken.


we went to gram's tonight and didnt' bring home any food.

Tuesday, August 2, 2005

i went to the jaw dr today. now i'm allowed medium soft foods for 3 weeks. i dont kwno what that means. i asked for examples. he said well cooked fish and chicken.  but he said well cooked fish for "soft foods" for the last 2 week diet too.
