SAB, North Jersey, bowling, broken van doors and other debacles

mood: cheerful
Everything sucks, but somehow I'm still in a good mood. I somehow haven't written in a long time (especially for me), and I feel an imminent, but quick, update is important.

Thursday: Did the SAB meeting and flew to work, those are the only things of note. I got screamed at in the bowling alley for something I didn't do, and officially decided to quit, but I also feel it's worth noting how much fun I had with Mike.

Friday: Did the SAB event with Jen, got invited to party with Tara and Steve, but already was supposed to go to North Jersey, so we said we'd call them when we got back in the area. That didn't happen. Hung out with Vicki and Rox (Jen, Christa, Sandra and I did). The night was long and complicated, but oh well.

Saturday: Got up early. Went to work. Was early. Had some fun. Went to eat after, then went with Jen to the bowling alley. Bowled with Joe. I'm going into his pro shop tomorrow to get a ball. He's also going to try to get me the job. We'll see, we'll see. If not, I'm perfectly okay going back to retail. My mom told me to flat-out quit the alley anyway, since Chris decided to talk to me like that. Then Joe took Jen and me to Middletown Diner. His door fell off the van. He actually pulled it off. Long story. So Wild Bill had to come out to fix it. The four of us sat around for three hours talking about nothing. Bumped into Linda Sue, too; she was our waitress. It was great -- been so long. I got a prank phone call that's worth noting, but I'm pretty sure it was one of Bill's friends. I'm going to figure it out.

Okay...I think that catches you up. I'm gonna do a

Mega List of Things I'm Thankful For
1) I'm alive
2) I get invited to party
3) I get to mooch off Jen
4) I'm getting hooked up with a bowling ball
5) Joe's teaching me how to not bowl like a loser
6) Joe's trying to get me a job in a competing house
7) Jen screamed at a prank caller that they shouldn't be calling her girlfriend in the middle of the night
8) I don't have to stay at Brunswick much longer
9) Less than a week until the new D-Day
10) I get to sleep in tomorrow
11) I get to sleep in tomorrow
12) I get to sleep in tomorrow
13) I bought my new Self magazine
14) One more day until I can return to the gym
15) Vicki's going to take a crack at drawing out a tattoo for me, too

Okay...that was five for each day I missed (if I missed Thursday, I can't remember). If I didn't, it's five for each day I missed, plus five...three of which are the same, because I'm really happy about that sleeping in.

That's it. Bye bye.
I know I'm over you when my nightmares don't include your face

So last night I had a full-blown nightmare. Was I running endlessly from a monster? Was I falling? No. My teeth were all growing over each other, I tackled and beat the crap out of Bill to make him tell me who prank called my phone, and I had apparently written something in my Blurty that made Ian think I found him annoying and didn't want to talk to him or hang out with him.

It was interesting.

It's my grandmother's birthday today (which I forgot). And I had good, good birthday cake my grandfather bought. Mmmm, birthday cake.

Today, I got a pretty bowling ball (purple sparkle, with my name on it). I also got a purple bag and white shoes with some purple on them. Now I wanna go throw my ball (it's a 13, which Joe said wasn't too heavy for me, and it doesn't seem to be). But I can't. I won't have games until Thursday, which I really can't use, so I can't bowl again until Saturday. Maybe Ian and I can go Friday...but maybe not, because I'm not good and it doesn't bother anyone but me, and I get all competitive and cranky if I keep doing badly, lol.

That's the major story for today. Bag, ball, shoes = a pro shop and a Sports Authority = $81. That's right. Not like the $99 (plus tax) deal that Brunswick tries to run where you get a ball (ooh! drilled by morons), bag and shoes.

I'm talking to (bugging?) Ian, and then going to dinner with my mommy. So that's all for now, you'll get a list later.
oops, I forgot!

  Week three down, twenty-one to go. Week three was disappointing and sucked. I only went to the gym twice, and only did weights once. This week, I'm going to go every day. The week after is the beginning of my whole new thing: measuring and weighing and keeping track, eating breakfast every day, skipping the soda and opting for water, etc. So hopefully, weeks four and on will be great, and I'll keep up the good work.  
my five things   
11:17pm 23/03/2003
mood: sleepy
1) I'm alive
2) I get to go to the gym tomorrow
3) I found some jobs to apply for
4) My mom and I got some quality bonding going on today.
5) I got a spiffy new bowling ball, bag and shoes, and my mom's not that mad.

Tomorrow, I have to start going to the gym again, hardcore. I have to go before classes, because after class I have work -- but I want to be going in the mornings anyway, since I think that if I go before classes, and get it over with, I'll have less reasons and less chance to skip. If it's already over with before my day really starts, then Bill can't convince me to go to the movies instead, and Jen can't convince me to go yell at Robby D or go spend my night at the bowling alley for no reason, etc. That's all. Goodnight.

You are a black sheep. Wow fun. You hate
everything, want to be alone, and don't like
light. You think the other sheep are idiots
and you like dark things (ahem.. duh..). Edgar
Allan Poe would be a good read for you.

You're A Midsummer Night's Dream!

Shakespeare wrote this romantic comedy to show that

story of young lovers being toyed with by
forest sprites is purely an entertaining

popular drama the world over.

I am Ophelia, from Shakespeare's
Polonius's daughter, a beautiful young woman with
whom Hamlet has been in love. Ophelia is a
sweet and innocent young girl, who obeys her
father and her brother, Laertes. Dependent on
men to tell her how to behave, she gives in to
Polonius's schemes to spy on Hamlet. Even in
her lapse into madness and death, she remains
maidenly, singing songs about flowers and
finally drowning in the river amid the flower
garlands she had gathered.

Emotional Wreck. You are extremely emotional. You
feel contentment moreso than happiness and your
emotional lows are to the extreme. You need to
cheer up and start enjoying your life. Where
there is rain there is a rainbow and you need
to see it more than others. Do something that
makes you happy.
