The office I share with Cindy was dubbed The Who-Gives-a-Shit Office. I need a new job.

Shannon's birthday today, went out and drank. It was a fun night. It's amazing who you can see out on a Tuesday night. And the idiots on craigslist complain that no one goes out around here....

Mood: cheerful

Got too drunk (off of whiskey and coke) to do anything productive this evening. I watched Iron Chef all night. And I ate one too many pieces of calimare. Sooooo tired, but I plan on getting stuff done tomorrow. Laundry, teasers, etc. Then off to a party that may be interesting or may be boring. My computer desk is a mess of half full glasses of water and coffee, paperwork, saline solution, and vitamins.

Mood: drained

Jessie succeeded in getting our couch through the third floor window. Him and 2 of his friends did it, and bare-foot to boot. Shannon wanted to drink heavily during the process because she was so nervous, but everything happened smoothly. Now she can fall asleep watching Queer Eye. We can actually have people over. When discussing getting it out of the apartment, Shannon said, "Premlita and I are never leaving this apartment." Some guy said, "What if you get married?" to which she replied, "Neither of us can even get boyfriends..."

I'm sick again. The stomach thing again. It really sucks.

Saturday was Rae's tea party and it was wonderful. Everyone was so excited, or, almost everyone. People said I looked liked Marilyn Monroe. I think my family almost fainted. When I get pictures, maybe I'll post them. Both Rae and Cindy suggested I give in my resignation and start a party planning business. I did think about it when planning for the Castle event. Speaking of the Castle event, we think it will now be at the Black Rep Theater. We got response back from our proposal, and he was very enthusiastic. I gotta find more motivation and passion, it's unfortunate that I burnt myself out.

Should move my car and go to bed.

Playing hooky today. Actually, is it hooky when you show up for most of the day, then tell you're boss you're going home because you don't feel good and you really don't? I'm not very good at being bad.

I had a productive weekend lacking in fun, except for Friday which was surprisingly a good time. I'm spending too much $$, which is not good if I want to get to London and Dublin. It will happen, though. R. keeps telling me I need to stop thinking about money. Do I dare start believing the grace stories? Everytime I do, grace happens.

I'm going for a nap now, try to get rid of this belly ache. I wish I did something to deserve it, like drink too much or eat too much chocolate. But no, it just came to give me an excuse to go home and write in my livejournal.

I feel messed up today. I haven't felt like this in a while, and I don't like it. Apathetic, blah. I think I might go to bed right now.

It's 3:30. Just got back from Betty's. Bunch of freaks in that place, I tell you.

Tonight, went to Jerky's. Had drinks. Saw Team Africa. Innussa was on a date, but lied and said she was his cousin. She couldn't object, cuz she didn't speak English. Found the truth from Domingos.

Shane called me earlier cuz he was at a Melt Banana concert in New Mexico. He called during their set cuz he knows I like them. I honestly couldn't hear them, but it was a good effort on his part.

Also, there was a high speed chase that ended with a crash right outside of Broadway Mart. Shannon and I were watching VH1's Awesome 80s, and we were complaining about the massive sirens. We didn't even notice what happened till much later. It involved a U-Haul, for some strange reason.

Very early on in the day, Shannon and I went to URI for an event that I was MCing at. Wasn't too exciting, took place in a library. I was less than inspiring.

Very very early in the morning, Shannon and I went to Nicks' on Broadway. Had to share a table with three boys, one of them Berk. Made us laugh the whole time.

Oh, and calien, we miss you.

Make-up, beer, and a mexican dish. I'm not sure what to say....

I went shopping with Cindy tonight. Bought a typical L sweater, and a hat for my bad hair days (with is often). Then both Cindy and I ate a Junkyard 57 T-Bird dog each, fries, and root beer. Now, I go to bed.

Today, Rae and I were going to Broadway Mart. This guy was heading there also, and he opened the door for us. We thanked him and went in. In the drink cooler "isle", the three of us had to keep getting out of each other's way. By the third time, he said, "We keep bumping into each other. Just like Providence, too fuckin' small."

It's cold, and the wind is howling. I am looking forward to going to bed.

A random list of things:
1. We moved. I love our big haunted house. On non-hungover mornings, I can wake up early and walk downtown with Shannon. The other day, she was complaining about the lack of cute boys on Broadway at 7 in the morning.
2. I'm looking at a car tonight. I am so excited. It is through an almost-family member, so the deal is safe. Rae said, "The car is so you."
3. My back is so much feckin better. I love my chiropractor.
4. I've been really busy doing non-profit service. I'm looking to do more in my immediate community, if I can. Maybe someday, I won't have to "make a living" and can do this stuff full time.
5. Last night we went out to AS220 and saw a really horrible band. And the set went on forever!. But the night was redeemed by going to the Wild Colonial and drinking. Keeping that kid up past his bedtime, haha.
6. I have good food in the fridge for the first time in a couple of weeks. This makes me happy.

I'm so glad I am in control of my emotions most of the time. Maybe not my actions, but I'm very clear of what is going on in my life. And I know that I'm the only one I should be relying on. Maybe someday, I'll find someone I'll want to rely on in some ways, but when it comes to core happiness, relying on another person is just too fragile. And silly. Anyway, thanks for deleting that post. I wasn't appreciating it much. How you could get so much out of that banter is beyond me. Still me, still single, still not shady.

Am I going to Mod night tonight? My sister writes:

Have fun at Mod night. Remember, if a man shows any signs of mental illness DO NOT PURSUE HIM. Even if he's cute and has a great sense of style. OK?

I heard a Mad Cab for Cutie cover of The Smith's This Charming Man today. This is enough to make me want to see them.


  2004.02.16  12.07

This thing with that guy is starting to take on a whole new level. Remember when meeting guys was fun? Now I know why people get married.

online surveys...gotta love them:

The Sudden Departure
Random Brutal Love Master (RBLMf)

Sweet. Dear. Loving. At Gate 18. Final call.

You are The Sudden Departure.

You've been in a lot of serious relationships. More than a few have ended ugly. Uglily. Whatever. Our guess is that you're a really fantastic girl who doesn't really know what she wants, and you've broken a few hearts as a result. You fall for people easily, and you enjoy the feeling of falling in love, but once you're there, either boredom or the old "grass is greener" syndrome sets in. The mind wanders, and with it goes the flesh. And then the toiletries.

We know you're not the classic "love 'em and leave 'em" type, at least not in a purely sexual sense. You have too many serious bonding tendencies for that. But even though you're theoretically looking to settle down, you don't settle long on one person. "Serial monogamist" is probably something you hear a lot. "Emotionally loose" is another way to put it. To the poor guys eating your dust and sniffing your panties, it doesn't really make much difference. Of course, it's not really your fault that people get hurt. You have every right to move on when you choose.

ALWAYS AVOID: The Backrubber, The Gentleman

CONSIDER: The Vapor Trail, someone just like you

I'm so tired. Insomnia hit again last night. I was completely useless today. Well...not completely...

I went to Ft. Lauderdale this weekend. I had such a good time. It was pouring out for the first two days, and I enjoyed it. Even waiting at the airport while my flight was majorly delayed, threatened with the prospect of getting stuck and sleeping in the Atlanta airport, was an exciting experience. I saw Janaki. I saw Sangee from Trinidad (riding Indian style on his bike in India...where were we going?). A man from Slovenia was insisting that he knew me, and kept asking me out for dinner. I made some new friends, some American friends, which is pretty exciting. And I came home once again renewing my vows of complete consciousness and understanding. We'll see how long it lasts.

Labin told me the marriage line on my hand meant I was going to be married once and for a long time. Also, my hand tells me I'm psychic. You can tell by the criss-cross lines, he tells me.

Updating at work, no one is here because of the snow. Boy I'm glad I didn't drink myself silly last night. It's really not bad out there...yet. Cindy called wondering if I'm here. She always asks the stupidest questions: "There's no snow at your place?" What the hell is that supposed to mean? Of course there is snow. We both live in the same state.

There I go with the negativity.

I've been taking the bus into work. There is a cute asian boy on my bus into Pawtucket. My guess is that he is Korean, because I always dig the Koreans. He plays with his Blackberry on the bus ride. He gets off where I do, and walks the same route as I do until my street. I work in the most obscure place, so I'm wondering where he works. I don't think it would be easy to follow him one of these days.

Got a chiropractic appointment at 11. I'm starting to crave it like crack.

I just checked my work email, and one of my bosses wrote me an email that said simply:
vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvery impressive!!!!!!!!!

He's that same boss that called me a prima donna. When I found out he called me that, I found a quote on the web that said, "People have called me a PrimaDonna. Nobody's ever fired me though." -- WilliamGrosso. I printed it out in large font and posted it in my office. Bastard.

I've been fighting with the insurance company about my car, and I'm not winning. There's another bastard.

I'm not in a very good mood. No one should have to listen to me when I'm like this...

I'm going to bed.
