My sister-in-law has a really ugly baby.

My father agrees (though only reluctantly in front of my mother).

Time:8:20 pm.
Mood: sad.
I'm very down today. Woke up with a sore throat that is not going away, and I suspect I've caught what all the waitresses at work have had. Mostly I blame this one bitch who coughs all the time.
Right now I'm mostly sad because I left work early, you don't have to close tonight and I don't have work tomorrow. You also don't open tomorrow.

Now I'm gonna go hunt down some dinner.

Today I trimmed sonata's claws. She doesn't like the procedure, but she doesn't struggle or hiss or even meow at me while I'm doing it. It's more of a 'hey, what are you doing with my paw?' kind of dislike. She might not even really notice what going on. I'd been taking the time to play with her paws while she sits in my lap. This way she wont freak out if I touch her paws. So now all I'm adding to the whole thing is the unfamiliar tool, which I let her sniff and look at before I take it to her nails. Maybe this will lead to less furniture shredding...or at least less Amanda shredding.

So there's a Law & Order: SVU marathon today, and I just watched an episode that centers around an animal smuggling ring. They had just caught the smugglers and a buyer in the act, saving a young gibbon that was being purchased to be butchered. Tutuola was holding a gun on the buyer, the smugglers had ran, and Tutuola was saying "Run, please run." It was hilarious. He seemed to really want to shoot the guy. The cheif was holding the baby gibbon, it was clinging to his suit and it was adorable.

Subject:The painting is of a naked lady.
Time:1:59 am.
Mood: drained.
So my grandmother (on my mom's side) is in the hospital. She's not ill or anything, but she fell and broke her ankle...as old folks are wont to do. She'll be out of the hospital soon, though they will be sending her to rehabilitation for a few days, hopefully. We'll need those few days, because we are getting everything ready to have her move in with my mom. We spent the last two days going through the house, clearing out all of her belongings. There was about 30 dollars in loose change though, so it's not a total loss. Some of her things, she is giving to me (including a painting by my great-uncle). Some, my cousins will have, and whatever else there is that she doesn't want will be sold. It'll be weird having her so close, though I suppose she wasn't all that far in the first place. Most of all, I worry for my dad, as my grandmother keeps very odd hours and my dad cannot sleep if there is even the least noise.

This thanksgiving looks like it'll be better than that time when mom and dad came home the day of, calling me the day before, telling me to cook. But this one will be more stressful than my princess guava days.

Mood: depressed.
I love cold weather, absolutely adore it. I love that I do not sweat all the time, I love that my skin and hair do not feel greasy, even after a shower. Unfortunately, I cannot enjoy this particular run of cold, because I've gotten pretty sick. Like, really sick, first a sore throat, then congestion, now chest congestion. I decided to call out sick from work on tuesday (the first time I've done this) and unrelated, on tuesday I got fired. So now I'm sick, without a job, and finding myself unable to enjoy this cold weather.

I'm trying not to get too excited, but things started to look up today.

Also, I have plans for this journal, hopefully I'll actually act on them.

Mood: creative.
On my way to work recently, I watched a turtle that had just climbed out of a gutter get hit by the car in front of me. It spun out into the road, on its back, legs waving in the air, and there wasn't anything I could do. It was rush hour and traffic was bad. I got to work and cried in the office, where my boss gave me a hug, and comforted me by telling me how she hit a pedestrian the other day.
A few days later, on my way home from work, I see an alligator snapping turtle on the sidewalk, about to walk into the street. I think to myself, "I can stop this." So I park in the nearest parking lot, walk up to the turtle and pick it up by the sides. I manage to walk a few feet with it before it supprises me by being able to claw me from that angle. I drop it, and find a better way to pick it up. Well, I figure I've always seen people pick these things up by the front and back of the shell but it's too small to really get a good grip that way, and it whips its tail around and I lose drop it again. Now I'm feeling like a total douchebag and seriously calculating the odds that this thing will bite one of my fingers off. Not that I'm calculating if it can; I know it can, and it is lightning fast, much faster than I expected.
I manage to get this turtle to a drainage ditch, which for some reason is dry! Why is this thing not filled with water, it was supposed to have water in it! Then I look up, and notice a canal about 50 feet away. Well I can't carry this thing 5 feet, let alone 50. So I walk into the animal hospital that I'd parked near. This place was huge, as large as a small people hospital. I explain my situation, feeling like a crazy person, and ask if they have a raggedy towel I can borrow so that I can pick this thing up without getting caught by its claws. I walk back to where I'd left the turtle, and it's gone. It dissapeared; I'm not sure how. As I was telling this story to someone later, I concluded that it was a ninja turtle.

Also, after a little research, it appears to have been a common snapping turtle, not an alligator snapping turtle, but still not to be fucked with. I am very grateful to have all my fingers.

I have this thing where when I find a new book or author I am interested in, I write the info down for further research and also so I can find it later. Well, when going to the book store, I pick up one or two books, and find three or so books I'm interested in finding later...It doesn't really balance out. It's a good system though.

Went to Barnes & Noble today, stumbled upon two different werewolf-themed books by different authors, wrote down their names to look up later. Why invest without research, eh? Anyhow, I'm looking up one of the authors and I find his myspace page. I scroll down, and one of his friends is the second author I was looking up.

I know that I do not eat healthy. For the most part, fruits and veggies are largely lacking in my diet. So last night, when I saw a salad that had steak, bacon, and fried mushrooms on it, I went for it. The salad was also made of spinach, which is one of the few greens I can eat and not get sick later. Well folks, the steak was delicious (really fucking good), the bacon was actual bacon, and the fried mushrooms were delightful... However, my salad was not spinach... Ok, I figure the menu lied to me, and I eat around the greens. When the waitress asks if we want a box to take our food home, I explain that I thought my salad was gonna be spinach, so I really can't finish it off anyway, but thank you. She expresses concern, explaining that the salad is indeed supposed to be just spinach, and they made it wrong, she apologizes and a few minutes later, a manager walks over, offers to remake my salad properly (no thanks, I'm full), tells us that my meal has already been taken off the bill (yay), and instead offers us free dessert. We got our dessert to go.

I've been trying to eat somewhat healthier lately, though usually I sabatoge my efforts by wanting candy...delicious candy, yes. Almost wanted to go to whole foods, till I remembered that the CEO of whole foods opposes the president's healcare reform ideas. Not going to whole foods for a while.
Coming home from work today, I decided to stop by some places I drive by every day, but never visit. Went to the used cd place, did not find any cds I wanted, but did find three movies I fucking love for only 3.99 each. Pitch Black, Chronicles of Riddick, and Whale Rider. Then I went to some crazy organic cafe that's on the way home, saw bison on the menu and sat my ass down for a bison burger. It was pretty tasty and the price was certainly right.
I've been pretty down lately...lack of sleep, lack of energy, lack of motivation. I wake up too early to go to a job that pays the bills but I'm not particularly attatched to it, get home around 6 to do laundry and whatever else needs doing, eventually have a little bit of free time before I guilt myself into going to sleep at an hour that's considerably later than I should go to bed if I want to be rested for work. Yesterday was the pitts, too. Got a counterfeit 50 at work that slipped past me, then the manager made me feel terrible about it, though I know it was unintentional because shes honestly the nicest person. Was supposed to get written up about it today, but the general manager and I forgot, so I'll remind her when I work on Sunday.
After I left work yesterday, things got better, but weird. Charles gave me his Circle Orboros models. To get me back in the game, he says. I was a little overwhelmed...And then apparently Anthony gave me a book. Which was completely weird! I've allways thought he was kind of a douchebag, and I have never once actually been nice to him, and he gave me what was actually a thoughtful gift. "The Thoughts of Chairman Meow" is a book of Chinese propaganda posters that have been altered to include cats. He says that he found it or someone gave it to him or something, but it was really nice and I have to thank him.
I have to thank Charles too, of course, but I'll try to do that by kicking his ass in warmachine. (or trying to, at any rate)

It happens.

This month, rent was late, but everything's ok now, and I have a coupon for B&N...these are unrelated.

Work was actually ok today. Though Valo says I will soon have the sleeping schedule of a trucker...this in response to the day I had to be at work at 2:30 to bake. I cried. Baking sucked, but apparently the store manager I'm training with really likes me. Which is cool. I seem to make everyone in the store laugh.

So my friend says my job is officially better than his...
After 6 months, I have the option to get health insurance through the company. After 12, it kicks in automatically, and I get dental. After 6 months, they start putting money in a 401k for me. But best of all, I get free lunch.

Honestly, the hours suck...getting to work at 7 am is balls, but that comes with the territory of working at a breakfast place.

"Aw, you're part of the family now"
"Well technically, I'm an eco-terrorist"
"Still part of the family...and it's what I'd expect."
