my afghan is finished )

At midnight I realized I was bored, and my motivation to write something had fled. So, I pulled out Pitch Black and watched it because I adore Riddick. It's probably unhealthy that I think Riddick is awesome since he is a murderer, but, oh goes life. After that, I decided that I needed fanfics from that fandom to amuse myself. Thus far, it has been hit or miss. Some of them are well-written and the other are poo. Then again, that's the way it is in any fandom.

In my seach for information and fics about Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick (which I thought was just so-so), I came upon astounding interviews with Vin Diesel in which he claims to be a total fantasy/sci-fi dork. The surprising thing is that he knows his stuff. Who knew manly-man with arms thicker than my neck loved dorky stuff? I was aware that Riddick is a pet project of his, but I was unaware that he is so devoted to it. I think adore him now. I'll add him to my imaginary harem of men which I would do virtually anything for.

It's pathetic that my uncle is such a low life. I grew up admiring him. Apparently, I called him "The Million Dollar Man". I have no idea why. However, in the last six years his life has turned into a complete mess, and it is all his fault. He's afraid to call me because I've told him several times that he's responsible for himself, and he's the only one to blame for all of these misfortunes. I'm twenty years younger than him, and I've got more sense and responsibility. The straw that broke the camel's back was when he gave me some church-produced DVDs for Christmas. I handed them back to him and told him to shove them up his ass. He should know better.

crochet! )

my fic was stolen! (yet still credited to me) )

So, the Bulgari (Bvlgari) is sinful. I'm sure that part of my reaction to it is purely literary. However, I can honestly say that it smells amazing. The scent is much strong in the shower with water. So, now I have to spend insane amounts of dollars for shower gel when I run out.

My mother is still on my ass to come home for a visit. I'm such a procrastinator. I thought it would be neat to rent a car and drive home with Jason. Unfortunately, most car rental companies require that you pay by the mile if you're driving through multiple states. I haven't calculated it, but I'm not sure I want to deal with that sort of thing.

The afghan is coming along quite nicely. It no longer resembles a long scarf. Although, I'm concerned that the remaining six skiens of yarn won't give me the width I want. I may have to order more. I suppose it's not too early to start thinking about Christmas presents. I want to make Caricia's baby a green blanket. The yarn store has this beautiful light green yarn with flecks of pink and blue in it. I also have a pattern for a really amazing throw I want to make for my grandmother.

I've become lazy about updating this journal. Nothing much is happening, but I'll mention a few bits of my life.

I'm still addicted to crochet. I made a blanket for Ferguson over the weekend because I'm still waiting on the order of yarn for my large dark blue blanket. The craft store said my yarn should be in by Wednesday. I also made a scarf that is about six feet long just because I wanted a monsterous scarf.

The air conditioner is not working in our office building. The repairmen said the part to fix it will not be available until tomorrow. It's not yet nine o'clock in the morning, and my office is already eighty degrees. I figured that this turn of events gives me freedom to dress how I'd like for work. So, I'm in comfortable clothing today instead of work clothing. I have a freakin' Harry Potter T-shirt on, actually.

Our airheaded receptionist just locked her keys in her car. The car is still running. She has an electric lock that is controled by the box on her keyring, so I'm not sure how she accomplished this little feat, but her ability to screw things up never ceases to amaze me. She was actually unaware that her vehicle was running until one of the other employees mentioned it to her. She's on the phone with her mother, begging for a copy of the key.

Payroll Girl was livid when I waltzed into the office this morning. The top layer of her hair is orange. She's vowed never to use Loreal hair color products again. The highlights were supposed to be brown. She's on the phone with customer service at the moment. I can hear her through the wall.

I have the itch to create a new website again. I really should ignore it. I never finish any of these websites. They just sit on my computer and become worthless garbage.

My resolution to drink more water and eat more vegetables has been going quite well. I've been drinking about 120 ounces of water each day. That's good, right? The more water, the better. For the past three weeks my lunches have consisted of a huge salad with lettuce, green peppers, cucumber, cauliflower, and broccoli. I've been skipping the salad dressing because I think it's exceedingly nasty when paired with a regular salad. I only dig the cesar dressing with a cesar salad (preferably the one at Macaroni Grill).

Payroll Girl has resolved her hair crisis. Loreal is sending her free hair color. She told me that one can overdose on water. Is this possible? I did a quick internet search. The only mention I could find says that it is extremely difficult to overdose on water, and that one would need to drink about three quarts of water at one sitting to even get close. The most common victims of "water intoxication" are marathon runners. It's due to low sodium levels in the blood. So, I think I'm safe. No water intoxication for me.

I wish I wasn't at work today. Jason took the day off, and he's at home having fun with Ferguson. Meanwhile, I'm shut up in this swealtering office.
