Why do I fall for these things?

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. × I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. I've tried marijuana.
I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.

Public Toilets

While automating fixtures in public bathrooms is a great idea for hygene, it's truly infuriating sometimes.

Take for instance, ass gaskets. That's what I call them anyway, the little paper things you put on the toilet seat. You pull one out, put it on the seat, turn around, undo your zipper and just as you're about to sit, the toilet flushes itself, taking the ass gaskets with it. Now, do you a. try and sit down real fast to catch it before it goes, or b. stand there with your pants down and get another one. Today the thing flushed itself before I even had my hand on my zipper, so I just got another one. Although, then, having already flushed itself the one time, once I was done it wouldn't flush again, so I had to do that dance to get the sensor to go off again. Then as I walk out of the stall to wash my hands, it flushes automatically again. Grr.

I also hate the "bathroom meeting", I don't like it when other people are in there, sometimes I wait until they leave before 'starting' anything, but sometimes they are having a goddamn meeting in there, like three of em, all yammering away about the fiscal year and taxes and crap. Hey, guess what, we have meeting ROOMS for that, this is the bathroom, pee, wash and get the hell out.

I also have a problem because bodily noises make me laugh. Sometimes I'll be in there, doing my thing, and someone a stall or two down will let one go, and goddamn is it hard not to just bust up laughing.. How unprofessional would that be? *pffff* HAHAHAHAAHAH. Sometimes I have to get out fast and laugh at my desk.

Anyway, thats my rant for now.

So Friday was the first time I've been exposed to the twins at the same time. Yes, my adorable redneck boyfriend has an identical twin brother. I've never been around identical twins before, let alone these two in the same room before. On the way home Friday night I was sandwiched between them in the front seat of the pickup and I swear I laughed the whole way home because it was just funny.

What Subversive Alternative Paradigm Are You?

Yeshiva, Hats, Little Lakewood


I just want them to go away. Friends of ours from up the street are moving to VA, since the house has been on the market the hats have marched up and down the road looking at this house for sale. The problem is that houses in town generally don't go for a whole lot, but when you're trying to take over a town with a religious sect who has lots of money, then you can outbid any normal family looking to purchase a reasonably priced house in a nice little neighborhood.

The problem is on this court, we have two very good sets of friends besides the ones who are moving. No one wants to live next to hats, so now they're scrambling to sell thier houses as well.

It's bad enough that the house up the road from me is going to be renovated and put on the market for over $300K, it's a detached, so I suppose it may be worth it, but I've heard that they're going to market it directly to the hats to make sure they get the most money on the flip.

Don't people see what they're doing? You're selling out your neighbors. First it was two houses, now it's three, and soon it will be 5, each house that sells is one less nice normal family who wants to raise kids and put thier kids in our school, its one less mom on the PTA, one less dad on the Fire Department, one less friend at the 4th of July picnic. These people want nothing at all to do with the rest of us, they won't even look at us (espeically the women). I could care less if it was a school for Star Trek geeks to learn Klingon moving in up the road, atleast Star Trek geeks might be sociable, atleast they won't take thier houses off the tax rolls, at least they may want to integrate into the fabric of our town, but these people don't. Not only that but they are scaring away the school age families, the PTA moms and the Fire Fighter dads simply by LOOKING at houses for sale. They are destoying our community one house at a time.

I agree with a fellow neighbor, hold our ground, don't sell to them, don't sell if they move in next to you.. but what then? Then god forbid I need to sell and I'm surrounded by them, then my property values go down and I have no choice but to sell to them because no one else wants to buy it.

We need to get them out of town, and out of town quickly. Somwhere there must be a loophole.

I'm a Bitch and I don't care.

So today I got 8 emails from Princeton Vet saying, Dear Ernie Kline, your pet (insert 1 of 8 here) is due for (insert shot here). I found this odd since I was just in my PetPortal account the other day, and I know everything was in my name.

So I had TM'ed stupid a few times prior to this to let him know that Big Joe was due for a vet visit and he needed to change Joe's information so the reminders stop coming to me, but he never responded.

So today I TM him today and say listen, all of the pets have been switched into your name, whats going on? So it turns out he was at the vet yesterday and asked to change Joe's info and they changed everyones.

So then he tells me the cable bill still comes to his house, so I call Comcast and take care of that.

So I go, "So do you still hate me or what?"

Oh man, talk about bitter. He totally went off on me, he hates that I have the house, he hates I have the bed, he hates I have the furnace that he has to pay for and on and on.. So I said, "If you remember correctly, I paid for 1/2 of the bed, and you took $5000 out of the last refi, which I'll have to pay for for the next 30 years so we're a little more even than you give me credit for".

Then he continued to go off on me, call me names, and tell me to leave him the hell alone.

So what, you may ask, did I do? I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF.

Yes, I'm a bitch, and I don't care. He's totally bitter over the fact that HE WALKED OUT? Hello? Not my problem. So you're stuck with a few bills and you have to live at home with Mom and Dad, not my problem. So you're a miserable fuck and I have my house that I adore in my town that I adore, where I have tons of friends and a wonderful boyfriend who I adore, so am I happy he left? HELL YEAH. My life has gotten so much better in the last 6 months, and I do appreciate the fact that he didn't make me sell the house or buy him out, but he chose that road, not me.

Why do I find it hysterical that he's bitter? Probably because I'm not bitter, or even hurt anymore. I can listen to 'our song' and not get depressed, and other songs that I associated with him I've already re-mapped in my head. When you date a stoic, and they leave you and don't act even the least bit upset, or hurt, totally completely emotional, its WONDERFUL to see them finally react to something. So the fact that he hates my guts makes me laugh, it actually made my day today.

Yes, it's a waste of my time to post this because I know technically I shouldn't waste my time talking to him or about him or thinking about him, let alone enjoying the fact that he hates me.. I know some will say that it only proves that I still have feelings for him, and I do. He was a great guy, he was funny and sincere and would give you his left arm if you needed him to, and he was an emotional wreck hiding under a guise of independence, and I know our breakup had nothing to do with me. I do feel for him because I know his family life screwed him up, abandonment issues, intimacy issues, the whole nine, and for that I do feel for him, but none of that was my problem or my fault. I'm glad he woke up and realized that he couldn't fix himself within the confines of our relationship, and I respect that decision, but what happened and what continues to happen is not my fault, never was, never will be. He chose to leave, he chose to sign the quit deed, and he chose to leave all of the furniture behind. He took his own shit, and the Tivo, and off he went and I let him go because I knew it's what he needed to do and there was nothing I could do to stop it.

So now I'm happy and he's bitter and I love it. :) So call me a bitch, I don't care, I already know I am one, but it made my fucking day to find out that he hates my guts and regrets making things so easy for me. :)

I'll be sure to shed a tear as I do my laundry in my brand new washer/dryer that he paid for, or listen to the rain fall on the brand new roof he paid for, or take a shower using the plumbing he paid for as I sit here in the shoes and sweater he bought me, listening to the iPod he bought me.

Not my problem. :)

(no subject)

Some of you know the last name dillema I'm facing if things continue on the track that they're on now. At the show Friday, Dierks played this song and it helped me make up my mind about what to do if we ever get to that point. It didn't hurt that he was singing it and kept squeezing my hand either. :)

Big Day

Today is a big day, in two ways. We graduate tonight from Fire Academy, woohoo. No more late Thursday nights of learning how to fold salvage covers, no more long Sundays wearing a pack in the blistering sun. Man do I feel for the suckers taking the summer semester. In February when it was freezing out we were still sweating our asses off trudging through the smoke house, mask full of wax paper.

Tonight is big in another way, a kind of scary way. Ok, so we've been friends for almost two years now, we've been dating for 4 1/2 months, the relationship has progressed amazingly quickly, which in and of itself doesn't frighten me. BF has yet to meet my dad, I've met his parents, he's met my mom, but tonight we both graduate. So not only will his parents be there to see him, my dad is coming to see me, and my mom, and my sister, and his sister, and well.. everyone will be there. Which means, the meeting of the parents. Our parents seem on the compatible side, his mom and my mom both have office jobs, his dad and my dad both have outside blue collar type jobs, and our sisters both do hair. Lots in common outside of the obvious dating children.

Part of me goes "You're freaking 30 years old, who cares!" but part of me wants to please my parents still, and part of me wants his parents to like me, and thus like my family.

So, here we go. Tonight should be interesting. :)
