I'm in love...

 So yesterday (Tuesday) was my day off. My brother is out of town, and I have been really stressed for no reason at all lately, so I holed up at his place all day. I planned on doing some reading and such. 
I was online for a bit, which naturally led to me checking ONTD. There was yet another Michael Fassbender post, which I always enjoy. And a couple True Blood posts, too.
I had brought Inglorious Basterds with me, so I decided to watch it. Then, I noticed that my brother had 300, so I watched that too. I spent most of the effing day looking at Michael Fassbender! (And ASkars)
I was looking at a bunch of random ass pics of him, too, and he seems like such as spaz. I want to marry him and have his German/Irish babies.
That is all. I just needed to have a fangirl rant.
And now, I will leave you with pics of the sex.

I love a man with some good facial hair, Unf.

Kill me please

Oh my god, you guys...
This chick I work with is so annoying. She just talks, all the time. About stuff. And then, if she's not here talking, it's cause she went to the bank or whatever, only she is gone for an hour at a time. And last night, I went in the back to grab something, and I came back up front, and she was on my laptop, changing the music, and she drinks the Red Bulls that my boss bought for me and my sister and OH MY GOD!
Sorry, I just really wanted to vent.

Look at me, being a decent LJ friend... I've left a few people comments, and I am making my second post in 2 days. Be proud.
Yesterday (Monday) was my one day off. I went and got a manicure since my nails were beat from not getting one in about a month. I read just one chapter of S&S&Sea Monsters while I was there waiting. Better than flipping through UsWeekly though. Then I went home and spent the whole day watching Glee with my mom. She's now addicted- I'm proud. I probably should have gone to the DMV, but I just wasn't in the mood.
I've been thinking, as another part of being more productive this year, I need to start working out again. I did pretty good near the end of 2009, since I bought WiiFit, but I stopped using it about 3 or 4 weeks ago. Before I got it, I didn't really think a video game would do anything, but when I was getting on it 4-5 nights a week for at least 45 mintues at a time, plus walking more, due to my lack of liscense at the moment, I really could tell it was making a difference.
And one last thing, I want more tattoos this year! My sister and I got new, matching ones last week! Just small, red hearts on the top of our hands, near the web between our thumb and index fingers. I'd post a picture, but my T-Mobile album is misbehaving.
Okay, back to work now. I've got to put together my food order for the week. I hate working 11-9 most days, but I need the money!

I've sucked at reading lately. It's cause I bought this damn Mac, so when I'm at work, if it's slow, I get online. That used to be time spent reading. And the other thing is I'm on a TV show/movie kick, so I've been watching stuff at night till I fall asleep.
To make my ass feel more motivated, I am gonna let you all (well, Ashley... haha) know what I'm reading, and how it is.
So, to start the year off, Book #1
'Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters' I'm on chapter 15/page 79 right now, 1/4/10.
Wish me luck! I did so good on reading a lot last year, during the summer.

Hello, my LJ Lovelies!
Sorry I'm such a lame LJ friend. I fail at posting.
Please allow me to make it up to you by sending you a Christmas card!!
Just post your address in the comments (they'll be screened) and I'll get the cards sent out in the next week or so.
Hope your all doing good!

An activity to force me to post every day for a week.

I stole this meme from rutter_tounged.

Day two: a picture
Day three: a book/ebook/fanfic
Day four: a site
Day five: a youtube clip
Day six : a quote
Day seven : whatever tickles your fancy

This is my favorite song in the world. It's such a Fuck-you, and it makes me happy. Ryan Adams is a freaking genius, and my jealousy of Mandy Moore will never cease. BTW, YOUTUBE is being gay to me right now, otherwise I would put the song up here. If you want to listen, please do.

When they call your name
Will you walk right up
With a smile on your face
Or will you cower in fear
In your favorite sweater

With an old love letter
I wish you would

I wish you would
Come pick me up
Take me out
Fuck me up
Steal my records
Screw all my friends
Theyre all full of shit
With a smile on your face
And then do it again

I wish you would
When youre walking downtown
Do you wish I was there
Do you wish it was me
With the windows clear and the mannequins eyes

Do they all look like mine
You know you could
I wish you would
Come pick me up
Take me out
Fuck me up
Steal my records
Screw all my friends behind my back
With a smile on your face
And then do it again

I wish you would
I wish youd make up my bed
So I could make up my mind
Try it for sleeping instead
Maybe youll rest sometime
I wish I could

I don't even know that anyone reads this anymore...

I need to vent/bitch/complain/whine hardcore.
My life is such shit lately.
David & Breezy are still dating. I'm trying to be okay with it, but a bunch of us went to Disneyland last weekend, and everytime I looked over, they were all cuddly and she would be looking over at me. I never expected her to turn out to be a bitch about the whole thing, but whatever.
I guess Erica called Dave out on their behavior towards the 2 of us during this whole thing, and he called me expecting me to disagree with her, but it's true. He turns into a dick when he starts dating somebody.
It's gotten to the point that Erica is kinda the only friend who I know I can always get ahold of when I need to talk. But I know from both Dave and my sister that she talks a lot of shit about me behind my back.
Ashley never calls/texts back anymore when I try to get ahold of her. Her bf Cory and I don't really get along, so apparently that is enough to trump a 22 year old friendship.
I'm still broke. Way behind in bills. I really need to try to find a better paying job, or at least something closer to home, but, as everyone knows, the job market is still shit. At least my job is very mellow and laid back. I don't think I could handle the stress like I had at WTS or when I was managing Baja right now. I'd loose my mind.
My birthday is coming up in about 3 weeks, and I've honestly decided to skip it. I'm always the one to plan my own birthday, and it always winds up being shit. People bail out at the last minute, blah blah blah. If someone wants to plan something for me, that's cool. Otherwise, I'll simply turn 23 and get a couple checks for $20 from the grandparents.
Ugh. Life sucks.

Random thoughts from people our age...

-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

-More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think
about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own
story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

-Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize
you're wrong.

-I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to
have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and
sticks when they've invented the lighter?

-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be
going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the
direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check
your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself
to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by
randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

-That's enough, Nickelback.

-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was

-Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know"
feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not
to be friends with?

-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know
how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or
FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

-There is a great need for sarcasm font.

-Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first saw

-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90
minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at
the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and
a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really,
really gets it.

-How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

- I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.

-The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to
finish a text.

- A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

- Was learning cursive really necessary?

- Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to

- I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and

- Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron
test is absolutely petrifying.

- My brother's Municipal League baseball team is named the Stepdads.
Seeing as none of the guys on the team are actual stepdads, I inquired
about the name. He explained, "Cuz we beat you, and you hate us."
Classy, bro.

- Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all
I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

- I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

- Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in'
examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a complete
idiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney and said
"Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"

-What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each

- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

- MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I
know how to get out of my neighborhood.

- Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
person died.

- I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.

-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.

- I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu'
to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an
overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."

-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

- Bad decisions make good stories

-Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their
profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got
the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I

- Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every

-If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspring would
probably just be completely invisible.

-Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go
around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly
nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a

-You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything
productive for the rest of the day.

-Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want
to have to restart my collection.

-There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

-I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if
I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I
did not make any changes to.

- "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.

-I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of people watching
TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but will they judge me
if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren't watching this.
It's only a matter of time before they all get up and leave the room.
Will we still be friends after this?'

-I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?
Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes
to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and
run away?

- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing
anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

-When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something she
hasn't already told me but that I have learned from some light internet

-I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then
I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

-Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising speed
for pedophiles...

- As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers,
but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

-Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not
know what time it is.

-It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.

-I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.

-Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to
with it.

-Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys
in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey -
but I'd bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3
feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

-My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would
happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?

-It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on and the
link takes me to a video instead of text.

-I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they
drive behind obeys the speed limit.

-I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

-I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.

-The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw
they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words,
someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about
it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to
require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself.
There's nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before
