Shake my hand. People do it when they meet each other.

I don’t feel like doing a list today.

This morning, I tried very hard to give Ocha his medicine for his ear problem. Cuz the vet gave me the meds in pill-form, it was impossible to get him to eat it. He bit me twice cuz he didn’t like me trying to get him to eat it. So, I went to Wal-mart and bought an eyedropper and some apple juice. I smashed up the pill and mixed it with AJ and used the eyedropper to make him drink it. It worked much better.

That was my major accomplishment of the day.

In other good news, I went to the mall with Mom yesterday to try and use her coupon at Lane Bryant to find her something cute. We went in to peek around Torrid afterwards. I tried on a pair of size 14 pants. They were too big. The 12 fit. For those of you know don’t know, that is a MAJOR accomplishment.

Bad news of yesterday: I got an email from Torrid. They found someone else for my dream position. Back to the drawing board. I am trying not to get too down about it. Of course, I left myself feel bad last night. And I still do a little bit, but I know that I’ve just got to buckle down in the face of adversity.

I can always change my name if that's what you mean

  1. This morning, I got up early to shower and get ready before meeting Stephi-chan at 10am. It was harder to wake up than usual.
  2. When I went to get dressed, something weird inspired me to try on some jeans in my “clothes that don’t fit” pile. I had never been able to even zip them up, let alone move in them. But this morning it happened. I zipped them up and felt hot and fantastic all day cuz of that. I guess the weight I am losing is starting to show.
  3. After wandering around the dealer’s room, we were on our way to find Mark, and I randomly saw two people from high school. I saw Stevie and Joseph! It was random and a half. It took Stevie a while to recognize me. I had to say, “Hey…it’s Abie…” I guess I look a lot different. Good.
  4. After AWA, Stephi-chan and I went to Subway for lunch. Then we went to Walmart to buy some more things for her new apartment. Her place is really nice. I hope I can find something like that in LA. Not holding my breath for that, but hoping nonetheless.
  5. When I was playing with Ocha tonight, I discovered something bad. He has a red blotch with black dots in one of his ears. I did research and found out that it is probably ear mites. So we have to go to the vet tomorrow. I hope it’s easily curable and cheap to cure…

She will kiss you till your lips bleed, but she will not take her dress off

I had an amazing weekend, which I would like to talk about right now.


  1. In the early evening, I went over to Jenni’s house. We first looked at random things online, and she showed me beautypluspower.com, which I loved. Then, Nenni made some delicious homemade macaroni n’ cheese for us for dinner.
  2. While eating it, we watched the new version of Pride and Prejudice. I didn’t really enjoy the movie, but it reminded me of how much I love historic costume. There were so many things in it that weren’t done right, but the fact that I cared reminded me how much I enjoy it. So it got an A for making me remember my love for costume history, but a D- for the actual movie.
  3. Jenni and I also discussed how Mr. Darcy of this movie had gas-face the whole time. hehehe
  4. After the movie, we watched a few episodes of Dead Like Me. That show is great. Jenni and I were lamenting that it got cancelled.


  1. I woke up at a decent hour. I are Special K for breakfast, which was special indeed. Nenni gave me some delicious peanut butter cookies for the road, which I shared with Melo, Emily, and Jenna later in the day.
  2. I arrived at Emily’s house around 1pm. We chatted for a few, then headed to Atlanta to steal away Alli and Catie. The 6 of us, finally reunited, went out to Moe’s Sports Grill for lunch. After a few mishaps, we all had the correct food. This moment is when the picture-taking mania began.
  3. After lunch, we went o Ikea to meet up with Chris Slack, Amanda, Crystal, and other Jump peeps. While waiting for them in the parking lot, we played with a shopping cart, in a slightly dangerous manner.
  4. We met up at Chris Slacks house so everyone could ready themselves for the upcoming evening. I fixed Brooke’s hair in a way that Yoko taught me. It was cute.
  5. The Jay show was great. It was amazing to see so many friends at one time. If you go to my flickr, you can see that there were MILLIONS of pictures taken that night. One with everyone’s camera.
  6. We all sang Happy Birthday to Chris Slack, which was nice. When I say “we all,” I mean the whole club.
  7. The highlight of the show was Crystal singing “Do You Love an Apple?” with Jay. I am so glad I have a video of it. It was amazing!!!


  1. Slept over at Emily’s house Sat night. Her guest bed was SOOO comfy. I did have to yell at Jenna in the middle of the night, but out of love. ;o)
  2. Emily’s mom made us a DELICIOUS breakfast of French toast, which we ate on their back porch. It was a perfect time.
  3. We drove over to Piedmont Park to park and get ready for the day ahead. It took a while to find our way around, but we eventually learned. Bless Melo for being such a patient driver.
  4. After playing in the park, just the 4 of us, we met up with the crew from the night before. As hungry bears, we all went to find food. Everyone but Melo, Em, and I ate at a Mediterranean place. The 3 of us got fruit juice and a cookie from a healthy shop next door.
  5. After lunch, everyone else had to move on to begin journies home. So, we all said goodbye. Then, it was the 4 of us again.
  6. We went to play in a playground. It was fun. Emily and I played on the swings and rode the slide some. Good times!
  7. After the playground, we headed down to Park Tavern to get a good spot for the Regina Spektor show. We ate dinner. Emily’s dinner was attacked by gnats! Bless her lil heart! After dinner came dessert. Yum! Key lime pie!
  8. Eventually after two openers, it was Regina’s turn. Emily and I went to stand by the side of the stage for it. I was literally less than 2 feet to Regina at some points. It was insane. She is such a little person. So cute. And her voice is amazing. And by the way, did I mention that the show was FREE? Holy crap that made it even more amazing!

Don't you dare come to bed with that ambiguous look in your eye

  1. Nerd games yesterday were fun. I really enjoyed the group a lot. And Mark is always a fun DM. It gets a check!
  2. Last night, I played Truth or Dare online. It was interesting, to say the least. One girl took a photo of herself with her underwear on her head! Ha!
  3. I posted a photo online for a few hours of me in my underwear. I can’t believe I had the guts to do that!
  4. I went to sleep at 5am. Geebus, that’s late!
  5. Today I have some errands to do. I will also do more job hunting... I got my first rejection letter today. *sigh*

My Life

I have decided for today to not use my normal numbered style.

I had a very nice weekend. Friday night, Emily and Melissa came down to Woodstock. We ate at Sweet Tomatoes for dinner, then came back to the house to hang out. Saturday morning, we headed over to Three13 Hair Salon to get a new, fabulous look. And in my opinion, it was a major success.

When we got back to the house, we had beef brocolli pie. It's a family favorite. Steve and his girlfriend (and Steve's dog, Deuce) came by for it as well. It was yummy. Emily discovered to not discuss certain subjects with Deuce.

Sunday, I hung out at home all day. In the evening, I went over to Jenni's house. We watched Twin Falls Idaho and ate peanut butter cookies. Jenni and I both got crushes on the main actors in it. They were definitely way cute on Jenni's big screen TV. After the movie, we watched a few episodes of Dead Like Me and then went to bed. Monday, we hung around Jenni's place till 2:30ish, then went out to look at some beauty supply stores to find cute earrings. No luck with the earrings, but Jenni did find a cute shirt for Roberto at Target.

Yesterday I went out to lunch and ate Vietnamese food. It was yummy. For the rest of the day, I just hung out at home. I sent out a few more resumes. I hope someone gets back to me soon.

I have no plans for this afternoon. Tonight I will head over to the nerd store and nerd it up. Woo!

.the end.

Maybe I'm just strange...

Whenever I watch Animal Planet, I cry. I can't help it. It's like I have all these tears in my body that need to escape. And watching Animal Planet and hearing about horrible events these animal have to go through... I just can't help but cry.

And maybe I'm a fool, or just strange, I cry whenever I hear about Steve Irwin. It's not like I knew him or anything...but it's so sad. And I was talking to Jenni about his death the other day, and she seemed to imply that he deserved it. Cuz he put himself in dangerous situations all the time, he deserved it. He didn't deserve it, it's just how it happened.

I cannot breathe

  1. Last night I went with Jenni to play trivia in Atlanta at Roberto’s Mellow Mushroom. It was just the two of us…but we lost, pretty badly. Of course, this Mellow Mushroom did happen to be right next to Emory, so there were lots of super smart people to compete against.
  2. Today I cleaned a bit. Ocha’s room looks much better.
  3. Emily and Melo are coming down tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it!
  4. I am feeling a little depressed tonight. I am definitely going to bed early. I hate feeling like this, and I hate that I feel like this so often lately.

everything here is free; everything but you and me

  1. I finished reading Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. I enjoyed it, but not as much as Stardust. I also started American Gods today. It’s starting off very slow, so its hard to get into so far…but I know it will get good, so I just have to stick with it.
  2. Last night, I hung out with Bonnie and Jenn. We made up a drinking game for Zoolander and got drunk and ate nachos. It was delicious and fun!
  3. Today I played nerd games at the nerd store for a while. I really like nerd games. I don’t care that it’s nerdy or that some people will make fun of me for liking it. I just like it, that’s all. Hey, at least I am not a LARPer. They’re much weirder than me.

Yoko ni aitai!!!!!

  1. I got a phone call from Richard (my homie from Japan/New Zealand) this morning! How exciting was that! Rich is such an amazing guy. I’m really glad that he became my good friend while I was in Tanbara. And he and Yoko are gonna call me tonight! I am sooooo excited to speak to Yoko!
  2. At Target tonight, I bought a Sims 2 expansion (Nightlife). Hurray! …but, as it turns out afterall, my computer can’t handle it. So after the installation somehow deleting ALL of my sim files… it still doesn’t work. *sigh* So now I cant play any of my Sims games cuz it made them all explode, so I will have to reinstall all of them…
  3. I got to talk to Yoko!!!!!!!!!! It was awesome! Richard called me again tonight at around 11, and I chatted to him for a few more minutes. Then, Yoko arrived and I talked to her for almost an hour! It was amazing. God, I miss her so much. Wow, I will go to sleep with a big smile on my face tonight!
