new hair cut

(no subject)

One of the girls at work got a "real job" last week. I'm trying not to be bitter that she thinks her chosen profession (legal secretary) is more valid than mine because she now has many more opportunities than me to meet a [rich] man and settle down [in a big house]. And, because of this, I'm picking up extra shifts. I need the overtime, which will be nice as my raise kicks in around the same time. Today is my last day off for at least the next 13, but probably the next 15 days.

I should be spending today cleaning my car, my room, my clothes, and my life. Instead I watched today's episodes of ER, last night's Sopranos, some Simpsons and some Curb. Then Shae and I went to Bellevue for cinnamon pretzels at Auntie Em's.

I have to at least do some laundry, which is where I am headed too right now.

Mission accomplished! My car is finally clean. Well, not entirely clean, since it still needs to be vaccuumed and washed and loved all over by the fine folks at Elephant Car Wash. That, however, must wait until my next pay day or until my tax refund arrives in Michael's account -- whichever comes first.

I have a load of lights in the dryer and I have a bleach load of Michael and my white shirts and socks in the washing machine. I'm going to go attach a bumper sticker to my car, and then I'm going to clean clean clean some more!

Overheard at my house

Shae and I are upstairs having dinner at my apartment. My freaky roommate walks by with a can of spray paint, some newspaper, and the plastic case of a computer monitor. "A little case modification, eh?" I asked him. I was thinking about how excellently geeky and strange the people I live with are. Chris is an artist, so he spray paints a lot of ordinary house hold objects. I think because he inhales so much in the way of paint fumes, I should really have expected his answer. I'm sure you can imagine my surprise when he replied, "Uhh, no. I found this computer monitor and I'm going to turn it into a robot."
