Why is it I can never find the men who are actually present and want me attractive? Why? Why do I always pine for people who don't return phone calls or emails or my affection? Is it that much to ask? Am I that unloveable or unappealing? Obviously not because these other perfectly nice and attractive men seem to think I am great? Why not the one I atually want?

I hate boys!

I hate waiting

In line, for emails, for anything really. I wish my computer would be fixed, but I am not sure if it would be smarter and/or cheaper to send it to HP to fix and send back or take it to Circuit City (or other computer fixing place) here and have them do it. Also contemplating just buying a new fucking laptop--although absolutely have no money to do that, don't really have the cash to fix it. Whatever. I hate waiting.

God hates my computer

Well, it is my fault really. I killed it, but then it won't let me quickrestore it to factory settings. I am going to call the help line to see if they can help me, but anyone who has ideas (the first disk went fine and then the second disk was spit out midway through saying error 48!) can please, please call me and give me advice. If you don't know my number call Chrissy or someone who does--or email me at my same old same old account, or bitch barn types can post help there. I hate computers!

Dude, one day I will get to sleep again.

I am real tired. I can't fall asleep on the night's when I have to be at work early in the morning or I have a shit ton of stuff to do, so that I can't. That is what I am right now. Still cold here though.

Freezing my ass off

That is what I have been doing all today. I waited for the bus in twenty degree weather this morning on the way to work and again tonight on the way home from the movies. It is mind-numbingly cold out there. I was one giant shiver. Fortunately the bus/trains all came soon today.

In movie news, I saw two films "Get Rich or Die Trying" and "In Her Shoes" because that is a combo you would normally expect from a girl like me. I realy liked in her shoes (I know, predictable--there was crying, I miss my sister) although the book was way better. I went to the other film because I was way early for Shoes and it was the best filler choice. Jim Sheridan directed it--he also directed "My Left Foot," "In the Name of the Father," "The Boxer," and "In America" all very Irish films because he is an Irishman. I was fascinated by the idea that he would direct this film (odd in that he didn't do the screenplay and it is in no way Irish). Anyway it was pretty good. Some of the acting was 'flaccid at best' and that was the main problem with it. Jim Sheridan knows struggle and poverty and gang violence--just the Irish version of it, but he gets it in a storytelling sense. Also it had the giant kid who knocked Josh down in the hallway on an election day episode of west wing (season three I believe)

I am a giant nerd

I have read over 1,200 pages in four books since last Tuesday. Yeah, I have apparnetly spent almost al my free time reading. I also cried three separate times while watching "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" yesterday. I know, my utter lameness knows no bounds!

On the other side of that coin, I am the employee of the month at my job. Oh, wait I think I just felt my lameness creating new and amazingly farflung bounds of lame. Pier One loves me, what can I say?

And I was doing so good

Yeah, I know I took a postng break. Whatever. I am the new Employee of the Month at my Pier One store. It surprised me, and I think it is fairly hilarious, but I am the employee of the month, and I got $15 and free picture frame, so that is cool.

I am so excited for all of the movies coming out. Bee Season, Pride and Prejudice, the new Harry Potter, Walk the Line, and that is only getting started. I may just move into the movie theatre. I may have to sneak into a few. Oh well!

Iron Jawed Angels

See this movie! See it, now or as soon as you can. It totally rules in a rock star historical film sort of way. It is not your average period piece. Anyway, put it in your netflix queue or rent it or even freaking buy it. It is that good.

That's really all. Also no Oprah or anyone more affiliated with Oprah then those who watch it on TV. Yeah, so that was that, and see that movie!!

Going to the Movies

I had a great day off today. I went to the movies and saw North Country, and then I went to the big huge library in downtown Chicago and got three new books including one I have been coveting and never finding because it was just published last month.

North Country was good. Very Oscar-acting-movie, but still good. An interesting and kind of upseting story of the women who work at the mine.

In other news, an Oprah taping may be happening a my Pier One store tomorrow. My mom will totally freak if that were to happen. I doubt I will meet Oprah, but I wonder who we will meet--maybe the cute designer man or Kirstie Alley. Otherwise what would be the point of coming into the store? Crazy, huh!

Also, my netflix has been lying to me lately. I keep getting movies one day later then it says, and I am saddened by that.

Ahhhh, Netflix how I love thee

I am well into the middle of a marathon watching all of the six feet under the netflix can send me. Actually I am alternating discs with other things in order to keep up with the watching between my job's hours and my roomate's job's hours. Anywho, Netflix was a brilliant idea, and I love it dearly even if I am accepting awards from some class action lawsuit it is/was involved in. A free month of four dvd's at a time is quite amenable to me no matter what the reason I get it.

Also my horoscope freaked me out this morning. It was like it has been reading my mind lately or something. Although, if it is right I may have a great weekend to look forward to.

Blogging Hiatus Over

After three months of rare blogging I am back in th game. I am online in my apartment with our wireless internet, and I will be posting on a regular if not actually daily basis. I am still here in Chicago where I will stay for quite a while so feel free to come and visit. More later as I must get ready for work now!

I audition in just a few hours

For the Rex Rabold. I am going to go and get all dressed and rehearse my pieces a bit in about a half an hour, and then I am going to the theatre all ready to roll. I feel pretty good--about my pieces and also about my life as it stands right now, so it is a pretty win-win situation.

I find it strange and kind of cool that I can still log onto the computer stations at my undergrad. Strange, huh? I graduated. Whatever. Okay, that's really all that is in my brain right now.

Stupid SBC Yahoo!

Our internet is not working, inexplicably, but yahoo will send someone for $100 to fix it up. Great, that doesn't sound like a scam at all.

Anyway, I am back in Moscow temporarily. I got up at the ass crack of dawn to catch a bus to the train to the plane, but I got here with no trouble or delays (which was great). I plan to see some friends tonight, and I will probably blog pretty regularly when I am here, and my roomate intends to have our internet crappiness figured out by the time I get back on Wednesday. Then I will blog all the time. I hope.

Oh, and Chrissy and I saw Paul McCartney on Tuesday! It was awesome and all you Missouri types who wouldn't drive up with Chrissy missed out, and I thank you so much for doing so because that meant that I got to go see him! It was an incredible event. I loved it. Thank you Chrissy a million billion times.

I apparently only write blog entries with Pirate-like titles. First off, Congratulations newly married Robyn!!!! and Joe!!!

The other big news in my life is that I got a bed, a great big one. It is in my room and tonight I get to sleep in it. This is a wonderful thing! I have been sleeping on my couch. This bed even sits on a frame, so it isn't like some sad mattresses stacked on the floor crap. It also inspired me to clean and straighten my apartment like a madwoman, so that is what I did today after it was delivered, and yes I was a good person and tipped the delivery men who brought it upstairs and set it up for me.

Okay, that is mostly all I know. Chrissy is visiting me next weekend, and Emily has a show that is opening which we (or at least I) will for sure see. Then I see Paul McCartney with Chrissy on Tuesday (not tomorrow). Then the next weekend I am back in Idaho. My parents are picking me up at the airport and we are going to the Vandal/Fresno Bulldog game with my little brother (oodles of family fun--my parents are bulldog alums). So, hopefully I will figure out my internet at home and start updating this regularly--I know I say that every time, but I swear I mean it.

Hope you all are doing well!

Once Again

We get internet this week!!!! Hurray!!! DSL, although apparently no one on earth has had an easy time getting hooked up with the company that is our provider, so we shall see. Anyway, at that point I will start posting again all regular like.

Congrats to Robyn and Joe on the whole getting married thing. That is great. Everyone in the Scow, I fly into Spokane on the 22nd and will see you all soon after.

Umm, I am working a lot right now, and that is about it. Although last week I was walking home from the train, and Holly Harper (a friend from CMS) comes out of a bar and chases me down the street. She is my neighbor here in Chicago (she lives like five blocks away), so that was cool. I really have nothing interesting to say right now.

New blog!

This is my new blog. It is my second blog, and I am replacing my first with it. Yes, the title is inspired by an Avenue Q song that seems especially pertinent to my life right now. Anyway, here I am in Chicago. I have a job now and everything--I am a Pier One Sales Associate. The good news is it is a decent wage and will probably have benefits in three months and I work with way fun people. The bad news is oh yeah I have a master's degree.

I miss everyone back in the 'scow, and I hope things are going well. I am doing all right in chi'town.
