Day nine? I think it's nine. Hell, I don't even know anymore.

Wordcount: 30,451. Hoping to hit 35K by the end of the night, but we'll see. I was really sick yesterday. Twenty-four hell bug of some kind. I barely got out of bed. I watched most of season 3 SPN in between dozing and freezing to death.

And why, why, WHY do I always get in the mood to clean when I feel crappy? It makes NO sense whatsoever. Can we just like, fast forward through next week? It should be Friday already. Sigh.

Why do some people who are part of a couple think single life is so horrible?

My ten year class reunion was last night. I did not go. In fact, the minute I got the invitation, I tossed it in the garbage can without a second thought. Definitely don't regret it.

Last night, I was at my grandma's house, playing in her "haunted yard" with my parents and some of my grandma's friends. A girl who graduated with me came by with her boyfriend and his son and we both remarked about how we didn't have any desire to see the snotty people from our class again.

Then she looks at me, and asks, "So are you happy?"

I smile and respond, "Yeah, I am."

"Where's your boyfriend or husband?"

"Oh, I'm not with anyone."

*Sympathetic look from her* "Oh, I'm sure you'll find someone."


Maybe I don't WANT to find someone. Maybe I'm perfectly happy being single and not having to give my full attention to someone else all the time, and wonder what I can do to make THAT person happy. I don't need someone else to complete me. I am complete already.

I woke up at 3:30 this morning and had to go to the bathroom. So I open the door and step inside, only to discover there is about an inch and a half of standing water. Pretty much got hit with a surge of adrenaline, flipped on the light...and discover that one of our water pipes has cracked and is spraying water everywhere.


I moved furniture and boxed things up for four hours before coming into work. I am so tired I feel like I'm going to drop.

And there is a screaming child down the hall, and that is not helping my nerves any.

Oh yeah. And since we had to tear down my computer to move my desk, I won't be online at home for awhile. Who knows how long.

Oh, if only I had the power to decide who lived and died.

Stolen from [ profile] trademybike.

Set your iPod/iTunes/Media Player to shuffle and answer the questions with the title of whatever song comes up. No cheating.

Weee. )

Oh yeah. And since [ profile] ellie06 is gone to California til the 30th, and [ profile] did_it_once is leaving for vacation later this weekend, I likely won't be around much for awhile. :P

xtremeroswellia: (Tweek: too much pressure)
Today is one of those days where I feel like climbing out of my skin. I'm too tired to read or write, but not tired enough to sleep. I'm not in the mood to talk to people, I'm not in the mood to watch a movie, I'm not in the mood to do anything. I am bored--to the point where nothing seems interesting enough to exert the energy it takes to do something.

It's really NOT just about a TV show.

Jericho fans have come together and done a lot of good work. It's too bad, really, that all fandoms don't do this kind of thing more often. We're strong in numbers.

We could change the world.

If we could just get past the petty bickering amongst ourselves over who's 'ship' is better or taking it personally when someone disagrees with our POV.

So I woke up at 4:38 this morning out of a dead sleep because it felt like someone was shaking me. Which, by the way, is a creepy feeling when you sleep with your door locked. So I opened my eyes, no one was there, and yet I was still moving. My first thought was earthquake, but I was doubtful, so then I thought maybe I was having a seizure or just plain going crazy.

Turned on my TV at 7 this morning and they were talking about an earthquake in West Salem, IL, which is about 50 112 miles from here. (That's the last time I trust my mother on distance of towns :P) 5.2. My response, "YAY I'm not going crazy!!"

Aftershock party! --Random Buffy reference :P

So I'm sick. I've been sick since Thursday. At first it seemed like just a nasty cold, but I'm pretty sure it's gone into an upper respiratory infection--again. Grr. It hurts to cough. I've gotten roughly...oh...10 hours sleep since Thursday night.

But, watching my Jericho DVDs has helped some. And Jake/Heather have been keeping me company. I'm 58 handwritten pages into the story I'm working on. I'm pretty damn happy with it so far *knocks on wood*. I finally registered at I do this thing where I lurk for a long time before I post in a new fandom. Old habits die hard I guess.

Well just wanted to pop in and say hello. I'm not around much these days. :/ Sorry guys. But you know I love you, right??

Power still on.

Angie still conscious. *looks at clock*

Been awhile since I saw THIS time of the morning.

Lots of stuff to post later, with any luck.

Just watched nine episodes of Supernatural in a row with a friend. Must sleep now.

xtremeroswellia: (Dean: Miles to Go)
With NO mode of communication to those of us on the main land. I DARE you to tell me that's not one of the sickest things you've ever read.
xtremeroswellia: (Me and Bozzie)
This has easily been one of the shittiest weeks of my life. Between Bosco and family crap and some other stuff...I've just had enough. I'm tired. And I'm frustrated.


I'm going on hiatus from now until...*shrugs* whenever. But I will check my email so if you need me, email me at If anyone wants to defriend me, please go ahead. I will not take offense.

Also? If you want a Christmas card, this is your last chance. Anyone who hasn't responded in about a week will be too late. I'm doing stuff early this year so I don't have to worry about it later. Comments are screened for those who want to leave their address.

xtremeroswellia: (Amy Lee: been alone all along)
I'm too restless.

This is not good.
xtremeroswellia: (Default)
So I've reached a decision that...for now at least...I won't be using this journal for much besides fandom-related stuff. I've been having this urge to be more private about my life and it's nothing against anyone here, but for now I need my thoughts to be mine alone.

I imagine on occasion I'll still post something non-fandomy here, probably mostly while I'm at work where I don't have access to my private journal.

I'll still be reading you people, though! :)

xtremeroswellia: (Bosco Bear: cuddle with me)
Just a quick update--between deadline, the office moving across town next week and Bosco being sick, I haven't been around much. I don't know when I'll be around again on a semi-regular basis. Things here are mad crazy and I'm not getting a whole lot of sleep.

Bosco IS doing better, but we're having to handfeed him *everything* because the stupid vet trimmed his teeth too short. On top of that, his bottom left tooth is fractured and infected so the SECOND, better vet prescribed him an antibiotic and pain killer. We're having to mush pellets with water and syringe it into his mouth to make sure he gets enough fiber and vitamin C. We tear up shreds of veggies and such for him, and have been hand feeding him hay. Each feeding takes about an hour to an hour and a half. Hence my not being on at home like, hardly at all.

But if you've commented/emailed me and I haven't gotten back with you, I'm *really* sorry. I'll get with you as soon as possible, cross my heart.

If you've written a fic I should read, leave me a comment here with the link and I'll get to that when I get some time, as well. I'm not keeping up with my flist very well this week. :/ Sorry guys!!

Well thanks to the combination of my paycheck this week and my federal income tax return, I will be making the final payment to one of my two credit cards. That makes me really happy because now I will actually have a little bit of money to use for fun as opposed to just paying bills. *does a happy dance*

How does one go about moving to another state? How do you find a job ahead of time, a place to live and all the stuff that goes along with it? Just call me stupid, but I'm in the dark here.

Okay, first of all...

Smallville 'Justice'. )

And of course Play Things. )

Real life. I went and worked out at Curves this morning for the second time this week. Yay me!! And then I went and had breakfast at IHOP before finally heading to Starbucks where I successfully jotted down the next chapter of my original fic that I've been working on for over two years now. *does a happy dance*

I'm in a very good mood!! :D I hope ya'll are having a great day. <3

In addition to waking up feeling crappy this morning, I had one of *those* feelings that something wasn't right...

And I picked up the paper, which I hardly ever do, and sure volunteer at work...her husband died yesterday. He's been sick for quite awhile, cancer of the liver. And my boss's husband has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer of the liver and colon.

Honestly yesterday wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was pretty decent actually. I spent most of the day talking to my cousin Ryan. Whom I've missed a great deal and just hadn't realized it. Funny cause he only lives ten minutes from me, but we never see each other. Our schedules are conflicting. Anyway, he has his own place now (by this I mean his parents bought him a house :P ). The backyard has a beautiful view of a lake. I told him I'm going to come over sometime, sit in his yard and write. He just grinned. I think I'll actually do that...I think there would be some inspiration struck there.

Thanks to EVERYONE who sent me cards and gifts--you are all amazing and special to me. :)

Now that Christmas is finally over, I'm starting to look ahead once more, to the year to come, and I know there is much to do, and much I *want* to accomplish. I'll post more on specifics as we approach the New Year, but for now...I'm just content knowing that a change is coming for the good.

I'm working on something special and dear to my heart which I hope to reveal around New Year's Day and hope that you will all reflect upon and consider.

I hope all of you had a wonderful day and are doing well. *hugs*
