checking in

stayed up late last night w/the kiddo. she had a rough day.
my heart breaks for her. it’s so hard to be a teenager sometimes … especially when you march to the beat of a different percussion instrument than everyone else does.
i remember that phase all too well. she’s ready to break away, yet she’s not. all i can do is comfort her. she has to work through it on her own so she’ll be able to make it later.
sigh. poor kid.

meme me

keith tagged me with a meme. i’ll humor him, but only because it’s keith doing the asking.

5 years ago: i was working for a cell phone co & hating it, going to school, and in a relationship w/j
Yesterday: i worked, went to costco, read my current book, and slept
Today: i caught the bus early, but due to transfers, was just on time. it’s too early to tell what i’ll do, besides drop off some clean laundry for j
Tomorrow: i’ll go to pt loma to take more pictures (while the entry to the monument is still good)
5 snacks I enjoy: black pepper & garlic popcorn, carrots, snap peas, ice cream, and peaches
5 things I’d do with $100 million: donate 10% to charity, buy a home here, buy a home near mom & dad, help family, finish school (quit my job!)
5 locations I’d like to run away to: australia, italy, hawaii, ireland, scotland (not in that order)
5 bad habits I have: procrastinating, anal-retentiveness, nagging about the house, staying up late, biting my nails

5 things I would never wear: a jock strap, underwear on my head, tube top, lingerie w/itchy lace, daisy dukes
5 TV shows I like: gilmore girls, good eats, 30 minute meals, inside the actors studio … i don’t watch much tv
5 movies I like: like water for chocolate, eat drink man woman, moonstruck, crouching tiger hidden dragon, shawshank redemption
5 famous people I’d like to meet: john irving, pablo neruda, jk rowling (so i can beat her over the head with book #6), alison krause, actually, i couldn’t care less about this section
5 biggest joys at the moment: when j comes home, having time to read a LOT, time alone, eating alone w/ good food & a good book, my friends
5 favorite toys: ipod, laptop, d70, motorycle, and the last one is none of your business, but j bought it for me recently

i won’t tag anyone. do it if you want to.

lighten the load

It appears that the State’s electrical loads today are exceeding forecast levels and the California Independent System Operator has upgraded its request for conservation measures from “helpful” to “needed”. Please consider implementing reasonable electrical conservation measures this afternoon especially between the hours of 3:00 pm and 6 pm.

give a cat a home

Home found!
if you’re in the san diego area, and would like to save a cat, please read this. contact me for the phone number if you’re interested.
posting for an acquaintance:
There is a cat in serious need of a home. It is not my cat, but a friend of mine’s. They had to move and gave the cat to the SPCA with the assurance it would not be put to sleep. They have, however, decided the cat is difficult to take care of (it is scared, and originally came from an abusive home, so does not adjust that quickly), so they are going to put it to sleep. The cat is a white tabby, and very friendly once it gets used to its new environment. This will probably take a few weeks, however, and the SPCA does not have the ability to be patient. It will probably hiss a bit and hide the first week or so it is in a new home. I need to find someone understanding who is willing to take the cat in so it doesn’t have to die. It is very friendly with children and is a good family cat. It just needs a little time.

the thrill is gone

after six harry potter books, i don’t think i’ll be buying a seventh. i really feel that rowling has betrayed her readers.
by the way – to the prick that saw me reading and told me what happens –> fuck you! i should’ve chased after you and beaten you to a bloody pulp!
(yeah, i’m still pissed about it. i thought he was joking, but it turns out he was right. asshole fuckwad!)
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD. DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE BOOK!
don’t say i didn’t warn you.
