Interview today went VERY well. At the end she said, "I don't want to say anything, because I have mor interview yet this afternoon, but I think you'd be a good fit here."

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Just back from the Apple store. My computer's headphone jack is damaged. My internal speakers don't work because my computer thinks I have headphones plugged in. So the entire logic board needs replacing. I elected not to leave it for repairs today, because they have a HUGE back-to-school rush on repairs and it would take AT LEAST a week to replace right now. The normal wait time for a repair like this is 3-5 days (and they generally overestimate, in my experience). So I've elected to wait until things slow down in a few weeks.

Today, I flagged myself.

First watch this:



So here's what I wrote to the White House. I expect HS to be at my door within the week.


Subj: I’m flagging myself

I’m a dangerous thought criminal. And, according to your Homeland Security director, a potential right wing terrorist.

Because I believe that life is scared.

Because I believe that illegal immigration is just that, and that our borders should be protected and our laws enforced.

Because I believe that federal authority should be limited to the powers specifically given to it in our constitution.

Because I believe that forcing rationed healthcare onto the American people is not within those specifically enumerated powers.

And because I believe the very EXISTENCE of flag@whitehouse.gov is a violation of federal law, an attempt to discourage constitutionally protected free speech, a violation of the federal government’s sacred trust, and a violation of the God-given right of every man and woman to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I choose to exercise my freedom, protect my life, and pursue happiness by loudly, vehemently, and proudly opposing this administration’s attempts to curtail my freedom.

And neither you nor anyone else is going to stop me.

Sincerely,

ME

PS: Greetings to you lovely people in the National Archives.

Couldn’t resist the shout-out to the lovely librarians. :)


I take a small amount of comfort in the fact that years from now, my message and those of others will be there (the Nat’l Archives) as a record of the outrage of the American people and our fight against this insanity. We’re on record, by federal law we have to be. No one can ever rewrite history to say that this was a universally popular bill.

Grr. My damn MacBook keeps overheating. I think the fan needs replacing. Which is really ticking me off, because this thing is only a year old. And I can’t get into the Genius Bar until 7 pm tomorrow, because their appointments for any given day always fill up by noon at the latest, if not the day before (I could get in earlier in the day, but that would require a 40 minute bus/train ride each way–I elected to wait until the hubby gets off work). And when I called to see if they could possibly squeeze me in today it took them TEN DAMN RINGS to answer the damn phone. I really do hate the Apple Store. Once you get in to see them, the service is fantastic, but it’s a PITA actually getting to that point.

Oh fabulous. Apparently one of my (very sensitive) coworkers cried after I left because she thought I was mad at her. Granted, she is annoying needy, but that was by no means the problem this evening. So now everyone can hate me more. Whatever.

I did something dumb tonight. It was my last night of work. I should have stuck it out. I would have made nearly $100 tonight which I really need. But I just. couldn't. take it anymore. I was SO FUCKING PISSED and that, combined with the heat, and the exertion, sent me into an asthma attack. My supervisor, which last year I would have called a friend, wanted to know what was wrong, but if I had started talking about it, I wouldn't have been able to stop, and would have said some very inappropriate things very loudly within earshot of the patrons. So I told her to please sign me out, I was going home. Please spare me the anger management lecture. I'll post more about the specifics later.

Ugh. I have felt like shit ALL WEEK. As if it weren't enough that my uterus had to violently announce that it is devoid of life, it decided to throw in a bonus of migraines, nausea, and body aches.

Gee thanks.

Just in case this reincarnation thing turns out NOT to be a crock... can I just state my preference, for the record, that the next time around, I could do without the ovaries. Kthanx.

Stuff

So I saw Transformers today. I won't post anything spolier-y about the plot, but I will say the dialogue is just AWFUL.

When I got home, I found fiber-licious swap packages at my door. I got some lovely yarns as well as some awesome purple spinning fibers. I loves me some fiber swaps on Ravelry. *sighs happily while squishing silk/merino yarn*

Other than that, I'm a bit sunburnt.

And the hubs is convinced he knocked me up. My period only lasted like, a day, and was really light. I've taken two tests which were both negative, but his pregnant coworkers told him THEIR tests didn't read positive until they were about 6-8 weeks late. So we'll see. I'm not allowing myself to get excited, I'm trying to keep his expectations down, and I'm not telling anyone I know in RL. (He however, has told his whole office his suspicions and received high fives for his successfully studly sperm-injecting skills. Sigh).

I'm just sticking to my needlework. No getting excited. We've been wrong before.

Yarn Porn

So my new crafty obsession is handpainted yarn. I bought a whole bunch on sale at JoAnn's and my LYS, then used my 50% off coupons at MIchaels for some more. I'm obsessed. I have two still drying, but here are the ones that are dry and skeined up:

I hate summer.

You heard me, I hate it. I'm just as cooped up inside in the summer as I am in the winter. My asthma is giving me hell, I get heat exhaustion after a few hours. If I'm out too terribly long in the sun (8+ hours, depending on the heat), I'll get sun poisoning.

Over the weekend I spent about 4 hours walking around the Minnesota Zoo. It was about 80 degrees with an occasional breeze. I went home absolutely exhausted with a giant headache and slept for 3.5 hours to recover. Today I walked three blocks with a heavy backpack on and was panting and wheezing when I got to the bus stop.

I fucking HATE summer.

Please don't smack me

Okay, so I've been losing a little weight lately. Last time I was weighed (a year ago) I think I was about 125 and a size 6. Last week I bought size 2 and 0 skirts at the Salvation Army. Today I bought size 2 capris at Target--and usually Target clothes run small. I'm thinking I must be down below 110 now. The other day I was wearing size 6 jeans and, without thinking, pulled them off without unbuttoning. Yeah.

Putting aside any "Fuck you, you skinny bitch" thoughts you may have in your head right now (LOL), do you think that's getting unhealthily thin? I'm on the fence about this. I haven't been this thin since elementary school (srsly, I wore a size 5 in 6th grade), but then again, I still have B cup boobs and don't have terribly visible ribs. It's just kind of weirding me out, as I haven't been trying to lose weight (why would I?) and while I have been eating less than I used to (hello, being poor), most of what I do eat is pretty damn fatty. Lots of cheese, ham sandwiches, ice cream, frozen pizza, etc. The weight lost seems to be coming all from my waist.

THoughts?
