Year 2 FOJG for Cobalt!

on March 4, 2008 - 3:47pm

I just renewed my FOJG membership. It was a pain in the butt (it wouldn't work) but after a bunch of tries, I'm finally back! Whoo hoo!
I didn't get a letter saying my membership was expired or going to expire (I think I thought it was later in the month) but I didn't notice that it expired til I tried to get on and couldn't. Then I went to the board and noticed it said March 3. Wow I can't believe it's been a year! I HAD to renew! ahh! So I'm back. whoo hoo I'm finally glad it worked! yay! I'm so happy! So here's to Year Two! Now I hope Josh has some surprise concerts nearby! I know it's not likely, but who knows?! I can't wait to get my stuff in the mail! Whoo hoo!
Did anyone else have trouble renewing?

Hotwire, Blooming Onions and Snow

on March 2, 2008 - 9:12am

Well my boyfriend came up and on a whim we stayed at a hotel to get away from it all. We went to to find the room. Hotwire is sort of strange since they won't tell you the hotel (other then how many stars it has and the area) until you actually book your hotel. So we didn't know what we were getting outselves into, and naturally picked like the cheapest hotel price they had. We lucked out!

The hotel was one of those Homestead Suites that had a nice kitchen and couch and all that-pretty new too- all for $65. It was one of those extended-stay type hotels though we only spent a night there. So based on this experience, I would recommend if you don't mind not knowing what hotel you're staying in until you punk down the cash!

We also went to the Outback Steakhouse- and of course we had to have one of those greasy-will-probably-take-off-5-years-of-my life Blooming Onions. I'm vegetarian so there wasn't much on the menu, but anyway to set off the Blooming (or is it Bloom'n?) Onion ( it was good and spicy). I just had a salad which was fresh and yummy as far as salads go.

Other then that not much else going on. Oh I am going to have an interview on Thursday! Yippee! I really want this job (which I don't want to talk about too much since I don't want to let myself down if I don't get it) but I'm getting really nervous about the interview. I hope all goes ok. I have about a week to fret about it... but at least a small glimmer of hope though I already had two interviews and they didn't hire me :(

Josh Groban I am still ready, willing, and able to be your hair fluffer or what other service you may need!

It is still mad cold here and of course it snowed again. Although in my DNA I'm set up for the cold weather- I'm white as a ghost and of Northern European decent- I totally don't like winter in any way! I've been on this Earth for 26 years and I still can't get used to winter. I would not mind if I never saw a snowflake again! Whenever the time is right, I want to move to some place warm!

Well it's another day. Happy Day After Your Birthday Josh! Happy 27th! I am sure you had a great day..

Not much new here. Yesterday I was bummed since I though I was going to have to pay this gigantic doctor bill because my state health insurance wouldn't cover it, but I found out I don't have to pay it and it was a mix up so I am relieved about that.

Today I put in my pathetic resume at a local job website.. I applied to a few places.. hopefully someone will call. I'm so embarrassed by my resume since it doesn't look that great. I have one "good" job that I had about 2 years and everything else was basically seasonal, temporary or it looks like I didn't do anything (due to school and I don't want to add the job that fired me for no reason). *sigh* This job search business is getting really frustrating.

Well I also went to the SPCA and volunteered. One of my favorite cats was adopted today so that's good. I cuddled a long time with this sweet cat named Mystic- a tortie with one eye that's a bit off- she has like a dot of some kind on it. Poor thing. She loved to sit on my lap, I felt so bad I couldn't take her home. I wish I had my own house and then I could take her!
Have a good day

Another Day...

on February 26, 2008 - 10:11am

Not much new here, I took my kitties Lucy and Cleo to a vet for their shots. Lucy, my new one, seems to get nervous in the car (or is it car sickness?) and she drools all over her beautiful long, multi-colored furry coat! They were both ok anyway and ended up being good cats at the vet!

I was super-surprised that Cleo actually didn't poop in the car like she's done on so many occasions on the way to the vet and other trips. I would much prefer dealing with the kitty drools then a messy cat carrier anyday...

I've been kind of down again when it comes to finding a job, the weather, my weight, and so on.. however I feel better today then I did the past two days. I just wish this beast (depression) would go away!

It's also hard when you found out about friends who have gotten married and they're getting a house or doing this, that and the other - I mean I'm happy for them but I feel like I'm a mess and haven't done any of that and I feel like a loser..I am just so lost in my life right now. I thought I knew who I wanted to marry, what career path I wanted to take, etc. but found that wasn't for me. So back to square one.

Luckily there is this place on Second Life ( called Support For Healing ( that has support groups and I've met a lot of nice people there that has helped me. I really think regardless of the therapy and drs, if not for Support For Healing I would have been in worse shape!

But my cats, music, and other simple pleasures and keeping me going day to day.

Have you ever tried Thai food? If you haven't, why not try something new? I love Thai food (there was an excellent place where I lived in New England) and luckily they just added this wonderful Thai restaurant near where I live in upstate NY that tastes a lot like the one I liked in NH and VT. Oo it so good! I love the tofu dishes..
Thai isn't all spicy (though it can be) and some of the dishes are a bit like Chinese food. They also have a lot of curry dishes if you're into that sort of thing. The restaurants also tend to serve awesome desserts- like fried ice cream or banana or coconut ice cream.

Snowy Friday

on February 22, 2008 - 1:23pm

Hello! Well I was an idiot and I slipped and fell on the ice yesterday, so I have been in pain all day today! I think I sprained my wrist and I totally cut up my knee! I'm so clumsy! eek!

I'm watching Ellen and some guy who didn't make it on American Idol is on it and he's singing "You Raise Me Up" :) Yay makes me think of Josh!
As for AI, I'm glad it's close to the top 12. I can't remember the people off the top of my head right now but there are a couple I kind of like.

Not much else! I'm happy I found the watch I lost but still can't find my necklace. I still need to start looking for a job again. it's getting aggrivating.

It's snowing like crazy here. OOO I'm so sick of winter!

Have a great day!
