Your Score: Katharine Hepburn

You scored 19% grit, 19% wit, 52% flair, and 28% class!

You are the fabulously quirky and independent woman of character. You go your own way, follow your own drummer, take your own lead. You stand head and shoulders next to your partner, but you are perfectly willing and able to stand alone. Others might be more classically beautiful or conventionally woman-like, but you possess a more fundamental common sense and off-kilter charm, making interesting men fall at your feet. You can pick them up or leave them there as you see fit. You share the screen with the likes of Spencer Tracy and Cary Grant, thinking men who like strong women.

Getting Back into the Swing of Things [31 May 2007|10:08pm]
[ mood | pleased ]

Jesus Christ, I just remembered that starting tomorrow 2007 will be half over. Life flies man.

Anywho, I spent the evening reformat my journal (like my Keith icon? God he was a fox). I figured maybe this way I'd update it more. Also, I've had this thing for four years and I want it to stick with the times. My former journal was who I was 2 years ago. This is who I am now. I have a lot of crazy thoughts in this head of mine and I don't want to forget them...I always regret when I stop writing in a journal.

So, I hope you enjoy and get ready for more constant postings (to the point where it will get annoying again).

I got these guys on Sunday, still have to wait until they heal to get them colored (probably on Tuesday or so). They're going to be green and pink, and I'll choose a color for the stars once I see how the birdies turn out. Strom was the first the christen them with names, and the one on the right is Strommy and the one on the left is Strommy Davis Jr.

Here's a close-up of Strommy Davis Jr:

As for the Stooges show, it was quite amazing. I can't believe Iggy is 60...I can see it in his face but he's got a killer body. His pants were so low that he was nearly exposing himself. He invited about 40 people on stage at one point (unfortunately I didn't make it up there), but I did make it to the front row and he crowd surfed right by me. Came up to where I was standing a few times too and he totally looked at me hahaha. The band that opened for them were just awful, about 2/3 of the people there were booing them, which resulted in the drummer going off on a tangent and saying "fuck Chicago," and the lame ass scenesters who were there started cheering because I guess in their twisted pin heads what's bad is good...\

Finals this coming week in all six of my classes...all but 1 cummulative *shoots self in head*
But I'll worry about that later. Time for drinks!

P.S. I finally got my Ipod back!!!!!

Who knew it would have lasted this long and gone so well.

Going to see the Stooges tonight, then driving back to school tomorrow. Kind of a lot going on now. My Grandma was diagnosed with lung cancer so I've been pretty depressed about that. Luckily Joe, my family and I are going to visit her as soon as I'm done with finals. Still unsure about the work situation this summer, I may stay in Chucktown and come home on weekends. I'll see what Joe has to say because I'm not living in a basement apartment by myself this summer.

For our anniversary I got Joe Venture Brothers and Animaniacs on DVD, and he's getting me these TattoosCollapse )

Woo Hoo!

I just bought tickets to see Iggy and the Stooges April 15 (me and Joe's 2 year)!!!

Also planning on seeing Cyndi Lauper and Debbie Harry on June 12 thanks to a tip from Grandma ;o)

Plus definitely going to Summerfest again, though so far the only mainstage performer I want to see is Roger Waters. Hopefully they will have some more on the Rock N' Roll and Harley Stages.

OH YEAH and Blue Oyster Cult, Heart and George Thorogood and the Destroyers are coming to Ribfest this year!!! I want to try to get tickets to The Police at Wrigley Field as well.


Spring break was this past week. Although I stayed home it was a lot of fun. More later.

Found on Facebook, mucho lulz [29 Dec 2006|06:49pm]
Dear Dr. Laura:

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other specific laws and how to follow them:

When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19- 24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?

A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?

Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Your devoted fan,

I'm glad to be back home for the week. Thus far, it's been very nice. I drove home Thursday night, saw Let's Go to Prison (God awful movie-we only saw it for Will Arnett AKA Goeb from Arrested Development) with the girls, partied hearty at with Margie and James downtown Chicago (beautiful apartment btw love) on Saturday, and spent the night with Joe yesterday. Today I went to my mom's school during lunch and played with the first and second graders during recess. I think that I'm going to my sister's school tomorrow afternoon. Tonight I think that I need to buckle down and work on the hoards and hoards of projects/homework that they love to give us at the end of the semester.

School's still going well, but the second half of the semester has been much more stressful than the first. So many more projects and homework! And with my schedule, I'm always busy save for the weekends. The weekends are fucking fabulous, if only they lasted more than two nights. Work is going alright. John Strom and I started a Jim and Dwight a la The Office type game with the co-worker that we both hate. Think Dwight Schrute, only bitches about everything every minute of our three-hour shift. John and I decided that we'd make a game out of pissing him off. 1 pt. if we get him to sigh loudly, 5 pts. if we get him to say "shut up!" and 10 pts. if we get him to swear. So far the score is 5-11 John (and this game started within the last half hour of our last shift).

My new love-Arlo Guthrie. I've never been much of a folkie, but there's something about him that I like a lot. It could be the sense of humor, the wicked style, or the fact that he looks a lot like Joe:

Joe and I watched Alice's Restaurant Massacre not too long ago, which was just the coolest. Also very sad, it covered the deterioration of his dad old-thyme folkie Woody Guthrie to Huntington's Disease. We also just got best of. So far, I'm in love ha.

I hope all is well for everyone. Before I go, I'd like you to take a look at this:

Things Would Be Different if Elvis was My Landlord [28 Sep 2006|08:06pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Thirty Helens agree that Joe's new Kids in the Hall first season DVD is hours and hours of hilarity! I'm trying to save up for The Office first and second seasons and My Name is Earl first season. Why are seasons so expensive?

In the words of Joe Walsh, life's been good to me so faaaar. Been keeping myself busy, thus explaining why I rarely update. I still work at Thomas Dining, and I just joined an organization called Best Buddies. Starting in October I will be paired up with a mentally challanged memeber of the community and write or call him or her once a week, plus take them out twice a month. It's usually something simple, like a trip to a fast food resturaunt or shopping. We also will have socials every month, this one being a Halloween party. I'm looking forward to it :o) Classes haven't been bad either.

I haven't been exactly taking care of myself though. I've already been sick twice this year. I partied until 6 AM on Friday and 5 AM Saturday. Definitely can't do that every weekend. Though partying has been great this year. I've been seeing a lot of the Worden and Lauren, and of course they're great. There have also been a lot of parties at Poggi's kick ass house, where 7 people including his girlfriend (a total doll) live. I've been much more social this year, hanging out with people outside of Joe's circle of friends. As much as I love those guys, I need other friends too. I'm very happy with the people I've been hanging out with.

OMG a kitty just came up to my window and stared at me! I said "Hi Kitty!" and walked toward the window and he/she ran away. I miss my kitties so much :o( I got to see them along with Ed and the family two weeks ago. We went shopping downtown Chicago and it was a lot of fun.

That's all for now. Time to shave my legs and go ouuuut

A Child of Israel
You scored 50% Pride, 27% Envy, 15% Ambition, and 50% Deceitfulness!
You are one of the Children of Israel. There were many good Children of Isreal (e.g. Jesus, Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Peter, and so on). However, for the purposes of this test, you are one of the bad Children of Israel. You are part of the chosen race of God, but in the Bible it seemed like you could never stop complaining and messing up. You are not really a biblical villain in the traditional sense. In fact, you possess a lot of godly qualities. You are humble, you love your neighbors, and you are quite trustworthy. However, your relative slothfulness and recalcitrance made it impossible for you to strive to reach the high purpose that God had for you. You were content to do just enough to get by. Therefore, since you're striving was not with God...it was against God. This is why you are considered a villain.

This year has started out a lot calmer than last semester. I've had a lot more work to do to keep me busy. The only night this week I did something besides just homework was last night, but that wasn't until 9 after getting homework done. It's not so bad though. I feel less guilty when I don't party as much. And I actually like what I'm learning in most of my classes. Plus I actually understand math because I'm finally in a class where people are slower at it than me. I love going to a school that doesn't focus much of it's efforts on math and science.

I'm still loving the apartment. Everyone's doing a good job of keeping the place clean and I think living with Joe was a great decision. And I love the privacy of having my own room!

Dana's wedding was last weekend. It was absoulutely beautiful. Everyone looked fabulous (and yes I will be posting pictures as soon as I put them into my computer). It was very touching seeing someone I've known for so long get married. I hope she and Rob have a wonderful life together.

Of course the reception was a lot of fun too. I mostly hung around Joe, Melissa (lookin hott as a Bride's Maid), Brandon and my parents. I was happy to have gotten to spend some time with Kira (who made a beautiful Maid of Honor) and Erin. I didn't catch the boquet and neither did Melissa :o( but Brandon caught the garter rdrr. It's always fun seeing my parents get drunk and hear crazy stories of their youth. When I hear their stories I don't feel like I'm so bad after all.

I'm thinking about changing majors from Early Childhood to Elementary Ed. Most of the teachers my mom works with said that a lot of principals won't even consider Early Childhood in case the teacher needs to change to a higher grade, no matter what their qualifications. That worries me. I also think maybe I should change my concentration to Special Ed. I've always worked so well with Special Ed kids. I loved volunteering in the class room last year, plus I've been friends with Megan and Jared since I was about 5. Sometimes I wonder if I would have the patience. And if I did Special Ed I might have to go to school for more than 4 years. I don't know if I can afford that. I have a lot of thinking to do.

That's pretty much all that's been going on around here. Three day weekend coming up, horray!

Feels so damn good to be back at school. The past four nights have been nothing but a non-stop party, so right now I'm real tired and out of it. But I'm not taking a nap because we have to go see Snakes on a Plane right now. The apartment is really nice-clean, big and any problem that we had was fixed right away. It's been great seeing my school friends too. It feels like we were only apart for a week and we just picked up where we left off. Classes start Monday so this is the last night before I have to get my shit together.

Leaving work last Friday was sad because I really liked my co-workers. They were some of the most respectful people I've met in my life. But it wasn't goodbye forever. My boss told me to come back any time I want to, so I plan on coming back for Christmas break and next summer.

I just got a digital camera, so when I figure out how to put pics on the computer I'll start posting a lot more photos. I'm really dumb when it comes to computer shit. Oh well, at least I figured out how to set this up.

Oh, and as for current events, I'm so weirded out by the whole JonBenet Ramsey situation because I JUST watched a show two Mondays ago about how difficult it was to solve the case because both an intruder and the family were very suspicious. I feel bad that her mom never lived to see the creep that did it brought to justice.

And I'm sad that Chris Robbison and Kate Hudson broke up :o(

One week from tomorrow is my last day of work, and in one week from Tuesday I move into my apartment. Maybe then my life will be a little more exciting and I'll feel the need to write in this as often as I used to.

The weekend in Wisconsin with Joe was quite relaxing, but went by too fast. We didn't get to Aunt Mary's until 9 that Friday night and left arount 9 AM Sunday morning, so we pretty much only got to spend Saturday there. But it was nice to see my fun relatives again and I'm so so so glad that Joe gets along with them well. We had a great time.

This past weekend I was sick with a viral infection so I sat at home the whole weekend. I watched a lot of TV and learned that most conspiracy theories are true. *Scoff!* as if I didn't know that already! Being sick is a total waste of time, so a weekend I had the opportunity to spend with friends was thrown away. At least I still have this weekend and next weekend, but I wish I got to see them more often. That's what has sucked most about the summer, not being able to see friends very often. Sooo different from last summer. I think I understand why adults only hang out with there friends once in a great while. Work schedules kill everyones life and soul...but at least it makes you money, because money is the much more important than anything else.

Thank god that there's one thing that is still pure and good in this world: great sex. Maybe that's what keeps the adults sane, a good sex partner. According to my calculations, the adult virgins do seem to be the ones that go on crazed rampages anyway.

Eddie had his surgery last Thursday. It took him a few days to recover. I was actually very worried about him for the first few days because he did not eat and would constantly whimper in pain. But now he is almost 100% back to normal. It's so cute when he runs with his cast on. It looks like he has a peg leg. He will get it off next Friday.

Although I had no special plans last weekend, it ended up being one of the best weekends of the summer. Sari's on Friday night was great. Saw a lot of kids I haven't seen since high school, so that was cool. I also got to spend a lot of time with Marie, who I've barely seen this summer, and went to Centennial Beach for the first time in well over a year-twice this weekend.

Tomorrow morning I leave for Wisconsin with Joe to visit my Aunt Mary and spend the weekend at her lake. I'll be back on Sunday afternoon or evening.

We have a new guy at work who is the first person there that I really dislike. He is actually not new, but he injured his back when he worked in another department and had to take 2 and a half months off. My god all this guy does is complain about how much he hates the job and the boss. He says he should only work as hard as he gets paid, though he barely works at all. He even said that he wished there was a job where you could just sit and watch TV and sleep. He also bragged about how he used to hot wire cars like he was trying to impress us. Fucking loser.

I work until August 11, then go back to school on August 15. This summer flew, but I'm looking forward to the school year.

I am a Healer! [13 Jul 2006|09:11pm]

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingYou are a Healer!
(Submissive Extroverted Concrete Feeler)
You are a HEALER (SECF)— caring, good with people, and patient. You are completely selfless and full of love. As a concrete feeler, you do well with your emotions, which are very strong. You understand and appreciate *why* you feel the way you do, and for the most part you're at peace with yourself.

Suffering in the world really pisses you off.

In relationships, it's easy for you to get hurt. Avoid all kinds of dominant (D***) people, *especially* in dating or marriage. You are a motherly figure, even if you're a guy. If you're a girl, make sure you're a mom some day. The world's children need people like you.

On the rare occasions when you try to assert yourself, you're cute and awkward, but highly effective.

This weekend didn't turn out as planned, but it was fun none the less. We didn't end up going to Schwagstock because the car we were supposed to take was getting worked on. Joe didn't want to take his because his truck takes $50 worth of gas to fill up each tank, and my mom didn't want me to drive my car such a long distance (8 hours away).

There were two get togethers this weekend though, one at Bea's on Thursday and a white trash party at Kristen's on saturday. Both were a lot of fun. On Friday night Lea, Bea and I went to see the new Pirates movie, which I thought was much longer than it should have been. Definitely not as good as the first movie.

On Sunday Joe's family got a puppy! Now they have three springer spaniels. They named the new little guy Skynrd. He's so fucking cute I wish I could post a picture. One of the two other dogs Joe has absolutely hates it, so I hope it grows on her.

As for my dog, poor Ed tore a ligament in his leg. My dad was petting him and suddenly Ed screamed like I've never heard him scream before, not even when he got a chunk of his ear bitten off but another dog a few years ago. The remainder of the night he hobbled around on three legs, but remained brave. The vet said that he'll need surgery. I'm not sure when yet, but I hope it all goes well.

Work is fucking exhausting.

Hello my loving and loyal readers (HAH),

A bland summer makes for some pretty bland entries. Not to mention that I don't really feel like writing in this thing after a 40-hour work week.

Last Sundays Father's Day was nice. The weather was shitty though, so our plans to go to the beach were canceled. Instead we went bowling, which we haven't done as a family in god knows how long. Although none of us are that good (particularly Melissa and I), we still had a fun time. We ate at Buona Beef afterwards, which is always good.

This weekend was the Family Reunion/Grandparent's 50th Anniversary Party. Joe's mom won tickets to the Black Crowes concert that was last night, so I was pretty bitter that I couldn't go. However, the party ended up being more fun than I thought it would be. It was nice to see my younger cousins especially-really cute kids. Everyone was pleasant except for my Uncle John and Aunt Lynne (both lawyers surprise surprise), who were the only ones who complained about how much it cost them to fly out to Chicago even though they have waaay more money than anyone else in the familly. They also put up a fuss about their non-existant cat allergies, which my aunt Mary called them out on and it was awesome :o)

That was pretty much the most of the excitement this past week. I've been seeing my friends here and there, but certainly not as often as I would like to. I wish that I would go out more on weeknights, but I am usually too tired and thinking about getting ready for the next day. This coming weekend will be a gas though....it's finally time for Summerfest with TOM PETTY!!!! Then after that I get two days off for Fourth of July, and finish off that week with going to Missouri for Schwagstock. At least I have all of that to look forward to-and all of you have that to look forward to read about! (only kidding)
