    My sister drives me crazy even from 8+ hours away. They wonder why I don't want to move back up that way lol. No... I need a buffer zone for the crazy.

    When we went to Disney (I mentioned this before) I bought the pre order photo CD and extended it to my family so they could get all the photos too. my dad chipped in a bit of money but my sister didn't give me one red cent... which is fine but she seems to think she is still entitled to harass me about when she'll get her CD.

    I have the CD's ready, it took 2 CD's for all the pictures x 3 copies of each so 6 CD's total. I told my dad about it costing me over $6 to send a 2 oz pair of earrings up to Canada after USPS upped their rates and he told me to not send them and he'll just take them back with them when he comes to visit in the summer. Afterall, all the photos from the Cd's are available for them to see on my facebook and save what ones they want if they really want to.

    Fast forward to a week ago and my sister says "Oh well I need those photos for Jaylyns birthday thank you cards". Oh... well why didn't you think of mentioning that to me before during the many chats we had about when I would send them and I told you that dad said he would just pick them up in summer to save on shipping costs. why would you wait until the very LAST second to tell me that?

    Ok.. easy solution,
    why don't you look through them on facebook and save the ones you want?

    "I don't know how to do that".

    Ok just go to the album and click on the photos and when you see the one you want right click and select "save to my computer"

    It won't let me. it's not working.

    Ok then you aren't doing it right because my settings allow you to do that and I do it all the time.

    it's not working.

    Sigh... alright I'll email you a bunch. are there ones you want specifically or do you just want the best ones I can find

    the best ones will be fine.

    I sent them, didn't hear anything back until 11 o clock last night (a week later) when my dad leaves a message on my facebook that I didn't send the photo she wanted so just keep sending more photos until you end up sending the one she wants.

    WTF.... *HEAD EXPLODES* first of all, I ASKED her if she wanted a specific photo... she can SEE them on facebook so she knows what they look like. she said no, just send a bunch. if it's such a time hack why would she wait a week to mention anything about not having the photo she wanted.... AND on top of that, since she seems to know what photo she wants can't you just TELL me what photo that is or go and comment on it on facebook rather than me sending hundreds of photos over email until I get the right one? this isn't a guessing game. If she wants a certain photo she needs to tell me what one this is... it's NOT HARD.

    I honestly don't know how this woman has survived into her 40's. She can't figure out anything, she over complicates BASIC function so it's a huge rats nest. WHY? I don't have time for this lady. lol

    I haven't made more breakfast muffins yet...

    I decided to sleep a bit late this morning so didn't even have time to make eggs... thought I would just grab a bowl of paleo crunch and some frozen berries and off I go.

    Got to work.

    NO SPOON.
    HOW CAN I EAT MY IMITATION CEREAL WITH NO SPOON.

    There's a stolen uhaul truck parked outside the courthouse. They have everything roped off and the bomb squad out there. We can see the uhaul and bomb robot from our offices. Haven't evacuated us yet but all the way up to our parking lot is evacuated. Kind of hard to concentrate.

    Seriously though.... Not funny if it is a joke. 2 days after Boston and 2 days before the anniversary of the okc bombing. People are on edge. Hopefully it's nothing.

    Either face-planting in the bowl or shoving handfuls in your eat-hole are acceptable.

    Oh that is scary. Hopefully its not even a joke so much as some stupid person dumping a stolen vehicle in a poor location.

    I woke up at 8am to Bloo pooping in her crate. Cleaned it up, went back to bed. Just woke up to her having explosive diarrhea in her crate.

    C'mon, Bloo, at least give me some warning.

    Yeah I'm hoping its just someone being an idiot and not thinking. Okc is still very very sensitive about bomb threats. So many of my coworkers were working downtown when the bombing happened.

    Water heater is broken. Dishes and laundry are starting to pile up, sick of taking showers at my mom's. Josh keeps putting off calling the landlord. Hoping he does it today.

    First world problems.

    That is really scary Laur... not cool. =< I'm glad it's empty.

    I couldn't really do handfuls because it had liquid from my berries in it... I was over here tipping the little cup into my mouth and trying not to spill it all over my face... then once I was out of liquid I had to reach in with my fingers and try to scoop out whatever I had left in the cup...
    DON'T JUDGE ME CO-WORKERS. You were all just up in here whining about how you didn't want to lift boxes of paper from Staples because they were heavy... BOXES OF PAPER.
    YOU'RE ALL MEN.
    I'LL LIFT THE HEAVY THINGS FOR YOU IF YOU DON'T JUDGE ME WITH MY CEREAL.

    I'm COLD. Our heat/hot water is already off for the summer, so it's cold inside (it's the middle of April! It should be warm, hot even!). I have to keep a light on Jagger's cage to keep him warm, which I hate doing because it dries it out and I know that even the red light messes with his sleep/wake cycle (with the light it's 66F in his cage right now). And if I want a hot shower it has to happen at the gym, but I'm getting sick YET AGAIN (I swear it feels like I've been sick since January) which means I really don't feel like working out. Also, end of semester means busy with projects/studying, and I'm SO DONE. I have no motivation to do all this crap. I want it to be May so I can have warm weather and no school.

    No. No you're not. You're getting a BS in Zoo Science. If you don't even know what degree you're getting, you shouldn't graduate :wall:

    YES. OMG SO MUCH YES.

    My vents:
    Angry about the Boston Bombings.

    Severely irritated that Jin is still harassing those around me about menial things like, "Oh, I don't know how to deal with finances, how would you deal with this?" Pay your bills. Don't blow money on stupid ****. Save. It's really that simple. We don't have a very complicated financial life. He's also been posting status updates every 10 minutes like, "Random Fact about Jin #1329845". And yeah, he started at one. This isn't my problem anymore. I don't want it to be anyone ELSE's problem, either. They don't have any more obligation to him than I do. And that in itself shouldn't be my problem because they aren't me and he isn't my problem ergo their choices shouldn't be my problem? But I feel like I need to protect everyone now, and it's a giant complicated issue with conflicting interests.

    Kind of upset about the living situation today. I can't go into major details but things are slightly complicated and I don't think everyone is on the same page. The whole atmosphere is different and it bothers me a bit. Especially after such a wonderful weekend.

    Many schools DO offer BAs in science subjects. At the university I went to, you can get a BA in biology; I know several people who did, because you didn't have to take the higher level chemistry classes, and they planned on being high school or middle school teachers.

    Your school might not offer that option, but it does exist. :]

    I even know someone working on her PhD in entomology who has a BA in biology.

    Of course, that's still not a BA of science, lol.

    what the heck? all of a sudden I have this intense pressure in the middle of my FACE. It starts at my front upper teeth and goes up to my eyeballs and forehead. it's obviously sinuses but why so sudden? I don't feel congested but they must be inflamed or something.

    You can't wash dishes / laundry with cold water? Something is wrong with out hot water heater (even though it was just replaced :wall:) & it causes the hot water to have a very strong sulfurous smell (even though the water is tested as fine) ... We have a filter for the drinking water but the one that filtered the rest o the house broke. So as long as we don't use hot water it's ok (something about the hot water heater & what it's made of reacting with the chrmistry of the water or something) so for dishes & laundry we use cold water

    I also take cold showers ... But since you are up north that might not be an option lol.
