Aquarius: Someone who is about to enter your life will help you make sense of those vivid dreams you've been having.

That's a hell of a horoscope.
I'm up at 1am making chicken soup for a friend, so I can deliver it to her tomorrow. Well, I'm boiling the chicken for the soup. That will be done at about 2:30, then I'm going to go to bed, and get up in the morning and finish the soup. Lori is sick with a nasty chest cold, and homemade chicken soup is really the only thing that will do in such situations. And I'm pretty content with this whole "making soup at 1am" thing. I love helping people out when they need it, and I love cooking, so this is pretty much ideal. And makes me feel so much better about myself than simply sitting here, whiling away the hours on the computer would.
Matt can't call my cell phone because it's a Belfast number and he has a local plan for Brewer/Bangor. Lame. And stupid. But, we'll figure it out. Hell, if we can wait 8 years to date, we can do anything.

I should be doing makeup homework. And I'm not. I'll get a lot done today, though, I just did one "5-7 hour long homework assignment" in about 35 minutes. Go me. And my advisor FINALLY looked at my capstone, the day after it was due. I better pass. I'll be pissed if I don't pass.

I heart lists

Friday.
  • I went to an appointment and had to reschedule it because someone important had to go away that morning
  • I tracked down the hairstylist I've been talking to and reminded her that the proposal I gave her is "confidential and proprietary." Don't show it to our competitors, bitch! ... She won't.
  • I drove to Topsham and took approximately a million times longer than was needed because 1) I realized 30 miles south of Bangor that I had no money for the Augusta toll, 2) I ran out of windshield washer fluid 30 miles later, 3) I pulled off the highway into a little town and stopped at a gas station for coffee, windshield washer fluid, and cashback on the purchase of both, and 4) The gas station didn't have enough money in the till to give me cashback, so I drove around for 20 minutes looking for a bank or a gas station with an atm. That took too long.
  • Adam and I had sex in his parents basement. I'm convinced that when I'm 30 that will be even more entertaining than it is now.
  • Katie and Jon came over that night and hung out with us, which was fun other than the whole "complete exhaustion" thing and the "wanting to see my boyfriend for 10 minutes" thing. But then Katie and I went to the Brunswick Hannaford and bought bagels and smoked salmon and cinnamon buns for the boys so they wouldn't touch our bagels. I've been eating fake lox for the past four days. Now I'm out of bagels and eating smoked salmon and cream cheese on toast. It's a good lunch.
Saturday.
  • I slept in. Ohhhhhh. Love.
  • I bugged the shit out of Adam because I kept disturbing him - kissing him, hugging him, etc - while he was trying to read. He wasn't going to tell me until I asked if he was irritated, and if it was my fault. Then I left him alone for the remainder of the afternoon and was exceedingly bored and lonely because I missed my boyfriend, and was in his house and still couldn't hang out with him.
  • Jordan (Adam's brother) went and got drunk with a bunch of friends.
  • Katie brought her Dutch friend Hilco over to visit.
  • Jordan and his drunk friends made their way back to the house, thanks to 3 DDs.
  • Adam, Katie, Jon, Hilco, Jordan, all but 2 of his drunk friends, and I went to Jon's house to play Halo. I hate Halo. I also hate sitting on the opposite side of the room from Adam when I'm lonely and stuck in a room half-full of obnoxious, drunk underage kids watching him play Halo. Wanna know why I went? "To spend time with him." I made myself want to gag.
  • We came home and Adam followed me up to his little sister's room (where I was staying that night and she was not, thanks to a friend of hers inviting her over). I cried because I hadn't seen him all day and was lonely and told him so. He hugged me and said he was sorry and that we'd spend the day alone together tomorrow.
Sunday.
  • Adam's dad made us crepes for breakfast. They were fat. Mmm fat American crepes. They were so good.
  • Adam and I went for a walk in the woods.
  • We played on a playground. I love swings. Then we climbed the jungle gym and kissed each other across the top, and kissed before we slid down the slides next to one another.
  • We walked in the woods some more.
  • By the time we got most of the way home we were fighting.
  • We fixed it. I had a depressive attack and a nic-fit all at the same time. He took me to town to buy cigarettes even though he hates me smoking, because he knew I don't know the area well enough yet to go out by myself.
  • Katie and Jon came over again.
  • Adam and I had more basement-sex after the family went to bed, leaving Jon, Katie and Jordan to amuse themselves. We almost fell asleep naked in the basement but I managed to go upstairs to his little sisters room, where I almost accidentally crawled into the spare bed with her. I ended up sleeping in her bed instead.
Monday.
  • I got up and made phone calls for work and drank coffee.
  • I totally spaced out about the Monday morning conference call, which happens ever Monday at 9:30am, and remembered it promptly at 9:56. By the time I got through to the office it was over. Sweet.
  • Adam and I went into town so I could work. My car almost didn't start. Damn.
  • I got some killer leads cold-calling today, including an appointment for Thursday morning.
  • We came home and I did paperwork and scheduled myself out for tomorrow and read.
  • I updated my livejournal.


In spite of myself, I'm having a fun trip. I'd like to catch up with Whitney before the week is over, though - I haven't seen her in forever. And I miss my Shannon.

I love exclamation points!

It's New Year's Eve! Adam's coming up to visit me! I'm wicked excited! I've missed him so much! I can't wait to see him! I have to go clean now!

I've ALMOST survived the holidays. I just need to get through the New Year and that's it.

I believe this weekend shall be a good one. Tomorrow is groceries and cleaning and baking day and then Sunday is New Year's Eve. Adam and his/our friend Katie are coming up, Shannon and Jeff will be here and Tim may come over later in the evening. I'm doing dinner and Katie's bringing liquor. I figured the easiest thing to put together for supper would be a big pot of homemade chili and a plethora of snackie foods. Probably a veggie plate, a cheese and crackers plate, pickles, cookies, fruit, etc. I'm just like my mother when it comes to cooking - I'm always afraid I won't have enough so I end up making waaaaaaayyyyy too much and eating leftovers for a week.

I'm looking forward to this.

Sometimes, these answers creep me out

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

Nov. 5th, 2006

I had Shannon drop me off on campus around 10:40 this morning to spend the day doing work in the library. And thus far, I have ridden Brian's bicycle to Orono to buy cigarettes, borrowed a computer from the media center and farted around online for half an hour. I suck at life. I need to write an essay now.
