I've been outvoted. Looks like we're staying and I've wasted a week.

Crazy, but that's how it goes.

Just going to start this post by saying that it's freaking cold in here.  The hole in the wall is still not fixed, not looking like it'll get fixed for another month.

Did you hear it's gonna be 20f next week? (Though, that was just on the radio, the internet says 40's.) Yes, that's right. Below freezing.

Anyway. We found two apartments we like, and more or less chose one. It's a three bedroom, so I can have my business out of the home, and it's got an indoor pool. The only thing we didn't like about it was the pet policy. Oh, did I mention the indoor pool is less than 10ft away from the back door of the place we'd be getting? (Did I also mention that working out at a gym sucks for me and swimming is so much more healthy?)

We can sign the papers tomorrow, Move the bed and stuff in on Saturday (If my dear friend with a truck is free), and then Chad can go to work Monday thru Friday and I'll see if my dear friend (and her truck) are free all week to help me move boxes and such. (Dear Friend, I will pay you in tea, and booze, and pizza, and home cooked non-vegan food, and lots and lots of love. <3 )
 But Chad's being slow to decide. He's thinking we should wait a month, move in in January. But he wants out of this apartment. But he hates rushing, esp with all our finances. We can afford it easy.(Well, not easy, but still)

But here's my thought:

What do we lose by not buying now? "THE F*CKING SALE" "MY F*CKING MIND" are the two answers that come to mind.

I spent all of my time the last week looking up apartments in the area. I am the one that did all the homework, called all the places, got the headaches. I am the one that has to give up business growth in order to further personal and family growth.

But I see that staying until we hear from Nvidia might not be too bad. Other than the hole in the wall. And the crappy landlord.

Also, Why is it that my mother-in-law has to doubt everything I research?  In other news, lately my mother-in-law's voice has been giving me headaches. Not sure why...


That's my problems for the day.

Rock shows, Homeless people, and apartment hunting

Hey all. I know, it's been a while. Again.

So, I just want to say that I went to Lauren's (lalalalauren) solo show tonight, and it rocked. Yes, I'm a groupie, so I'm bias, but still, I felt it was a great show and a wonderful start to a solo career. I filmed 90% of it on her camera, so keep your eyes on her blog the next few days and you should see some awesome songs.

After the show, we were standing outside saying goodbye -We didn't know there was a cover to see the band Lauren opened for, and we didn't have any cash on us. I felt kinda bad, cause we bailed on the other band, but they didn't exactly advertise. I mean, if we had to buy $3-5 worth of drinks at the bar, that would be one thing, but still. - Anyway, we were outside and this really loud black (Yes, racist. I know. But my Uncles are black, so lay off me.) gentleman comes across the street toward us. The closer he got, the more I could smell booze, and smoke. He starts to walk past us, with a cheerful 'Hello', so I'm like, ok, this is just a harmless bum, lets move along. But then he turns and starts talking. And talking, and talking and talking. Chad is grinning, Lauren is all freaking out (you were, don't lie.), and Ryan has his "you're a freak but I pity you so here's a fake smile." look on his face. So the guy, who called himself 'Floyd', was pretty much picking on Ryan, since Ryan kept edging away from him. Lauren's trying to get back inside and bring Ryan with her, but then Floyd steps up toward Lauren, who takes three steps back.

Which causes Floyd to start in on Lauren. Go figure. But we get Lauren and Ryan inside. And then what does my Husband do?

He talks to the guy. And they talk and talk and talk and talk.

Finally we get away, but it was interesting to hear the drunk guy talk. Pretty intelligent, but he rambled like no other.

In other news, We're apartment shopping again. The hole in our wall is still there. They just got the insurance lady out to look at it, so hopefully they'll fix it soon. We're still going to move though. 1 bedroom just is not enough space for all our stuff.

So, we're looking at 2 bedrooms. Or 3 bedrooms, if I want to do massage out of our home. Which isn't a bad idea, I just don't foresee getting too many new clients that way. Would save a lot on gas and time though.

Oh, we got a car, for those following that aren't facebook friends. (Which is no one) 05 PT Cruiser.

So yes, busy with apartment shopping and trying to clean the current apartment.

I'll try and post sometime within the next few days. I have a few rants ready to be posted.

Later y'all.

Love ya.

Wow, it's been a while.

Hello my freaky darlings!

Ya, It's been a while. Sorry about that.

So, I'm trying this new program/web-thing called "Write or Die", which is supposed to prompt you to write using flashing red backgrounds and annoying music. The only problem? The first piece of music was "Banana phone", and I got distracted from the distraction while dancing...So far, the only song has been Banana phone....*sigh*

So, life. Ya, it goes. Took our van into the shop yesterday. The Head gasket, as well as everything else, is busted. Power steering, Transmission pan and cover, and a few other things as well. So, this weekend we get to go car shopping. <sarcasm> Yay. </sarcasm> So I get to pull everything out of the van into the living room. I'll keep you updated. Or I'll try.

Oh ya, and a car ran into our apartment last week. There's a nice hole in the wall now, so that part of the living/dining room can't be used right now, in case someone wants to come look at it. So, my messy living room is getting all the crap from the van piled onto it. Joy. My apartment looks like crap...

What else? Hum...Oh, the business is up and running. It's the shaky run of a newborn horse, but it's still a run. I've got enough to make rent, and that's what matters.

Screen's starting to turn pink again...hum...what to write...

Banana Phone...

Ya, ok, turned it off. I'm done for now. I'll try again tomorrow.

Le Random

Ok, Lets start with this awesome corset. 

Isn't it beautiful? It's my next one, I swear. And it's only $275! But, it's two parts, so I can wear it longer. ^^  The ruffle is a bit interesting, I might order it without it.

This is my other favorite, and I can think of more uses for it too, but it's not my red and black motif...Though it'd look awesome with a red dress... I might even see if she could add a hood to it for even more use. The sleeves are detachable for summer wear. It's $280 as it is now.

Ok, moving right along.

I know haven't posted in a few days. Sorry, not too much has been going on.  Been working mornings at the deli.
Oh, deli drama. It's just as bad as pool drama. So-and-so, hates so-and-so, who won't work with so-and-so.  Then people get upset and just grumble and gossip.
The lo-down is as such. One's prego, so she's all over the place mood-wise. I was suppose to be the boss to day, but I had no idea what was going on. During the lunch hours we were overstaffed, but starting at two we had more than enough staff. Cheese wouldn't come help, and the cook kept vanishing. Oh, and the word on the cook is that he comes in high, but there's no proof so shush. The main worker today always seems like a nervous breakdown waiting to happen.

So ya, if I was any better at writing screen plays I'd be making a sitcom. I might just jot down some notes and hand them off to people and say 'Have fun!'. Not sure yet. The idea for my cafe sitcom is still floating around in my head, and they might start breeding if I leave them both there for a while.

So, we bought our own internet today. >.< Ya, I know. Paying for internet...Sucks, but what can you do. It's commitment free, but the instillation is broken into 3 months. So the way I see it, I'm paying (Yes, I'm paying. It's Chad's birthday present) $100 a month for the next 3 months, then we'll get into a contract after that if we're still here.

In other news, Dog sitting is going well. This might mean I get a puppy sooner than Chad expected. Mwahaha.
Maybe. We'll see.

Finally used my Victoria's Secret gift card I got for my bridal shower. Ya, that was back in May, but whatever. I got some nice lotions that Chad liked the scent of.

Ok, babbling's gotten stupid, so I'm out of here.

Dog sitting

Today is the first day of Dog Sitting Genny - Chad's dog from childhood. So far, so good. We're hopping she doesn't revert to her puppy-like behavior of tearing stuff up when we have to go back to work.

Work yesterday was alright. Very long day. 9 hours at Freddys kinda wears you down. In the last two hours I managed to get soaked with a hose, and get my pants splashed with grease. Fun times.

Hum. What to babble about today...Not sure. Kinda gonna spend a lazy day today. Just got to get Genny to Petco for a nail trim by 6:30.

I'll post more if I think of anything.

They like me, they really like me!

Just to start out: Wow. Just wow.  You guys rock. I'll give the blog an honest try then. ^^

Hum, writers block again. Well, last time I just babbled, so we'll try that again.

Had a awesome night last night. Picked Chad up from work, took him out to a nice dinner (Should have saved it for next week for his birthday, but whatever), and we went food shopping. I don't know if you have ever gone shopping with a half-asleep man, but it's pretty much like shopping alone with the help of a voice that answers "I don't know." to any question of "Should we get this?". lol. Enjoyable none-the-less. After all, it could be worse. I would hate to let the DnD group loose in Winco. Safeway was bad enough.

For those that have never shopped late at night with the DnD group - Lucky you. lol. N re-organizes shelves, and the two JB's try to re-re-organize. N realizes, and then starts throwing random objects into the next isle. D & Chad just try and help but end up running around grabbing what we need.
Poor Safeway.

Was I on a topic? Oh ya! Last night! Ok, so we get home and we get a text from TK! Taka-chan wants to hang out. So we talk it over; romantic just the two of us night, or fun movie night with the TK. TK won out - Romantic evenings don't lead well to Chad finishing a character for his DnD group (that I have to work through *pout*) getting done. So Chad goes out to get TK. We watched Animal House and had a great cuddle pile. ^^ Happiness. More people should have picked up their phones to join us. *poke poke*

So ya, last night was great. J-man came over this morning and the three of them headed out. They're taking TK home and then the boys are off to a DnD game. I've got work, but I'm glad they get to play.

Work sucks, but what's new? I cut lunch meat for Freddy's, so it's not exactly glamorous. Just need a bit more start-up cash to start the massage biz and then I'm out. I should just look for a job working for a spa for now, but I don't want to kill my hands before I start. As it is, they've been locking up more lately. I think it means I'm overdue for a massage myself. Should go to my main guy and have him pop my carpal tunnel back into place. the weird writers block thing again. Guess that means it's time to go. Later y'all.

First post

So, I've been getting the strange urge lately to do a blog. Not sure what about, but we'll give this a try.

So...What am I suppose to put here?  I have a friend who just randomly types on a topic. I have another who's blogs are thought provoking. Not sure which I'm going for.

I guess this is just a way to get me back into writing again. I kinda gave it up to go to Massage school. Now picking it back up is hard. Running Role-playing games isn't quite the same, as you have a bunch of other people helping run the story, you just need a plot. Controlling the whole world is a bit more difficult.
I've also noticed that my characters got a bit overpowered and/or 'Mary-Sue'-ish over the years. Too perfect, too powerful, too much of a main character that you hate. I'm trying to fix this. This means that I might end up posting random story ideas/character bios/drabbles (a story less than 500 words) on here. I might start a livejournal for that though. Seems that's what all the noob writers these days are doing.

Oh! Is it just me, or does this background look like stylized blood?  No, just me? Oh well, I like it, even if it is pink...

Ok, I guess I'm babbling. Not sure if that means I should get off or what.

If anyone is reading this...I don't know why you are. You must really like me...
