more big pics

Yet another pic from my old computer. This is from 2009, the first time in a while it snowed here. I took a ton of photos, but these are the ones I'm posting now :) I put mom's cat, Emma, outside to see how she'd react to snow. And this is how, lololol. She stopped dead in her tracks, turned around, shaking off her paws after each step, and started scratching at the door. This cat is so prissy, she comes in from outside to use the litterbox, and then goes back out again.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhh My laptop is heeeeeere and it works! I can take it to the library and use the wifi now instead of the public computers!

The keyboard is bigger than my old one, and the delete key is in a different place so I keep hitting the page up key instead. NO I DID NOT WANT TO DO THAT.


FYI I got it from Usedlaptops.com

ALSO THERE WAS A GAS LEAK WHEN I GOT TO WORK THIS MORNING (at 4 AM, the general manager wasn't coming in until 6). WHY DOES THIS STUFF ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME I SWEAR. And then it was because some shithead left a burner on the stove on. The stove is ancient and the pilot light doesn't work; you have to turn on the burner and light it with a cigarrette lighter. Maybe now that the fire department and the gas company said we need a new damn stove, the stingy owners will actually get us a one.

What the shit, are you serious

I've been waffling about whether or not I want to move. I kind of want a place of my own, but then I think about how much of a pain in the ass moving is.

Well, the real estate peeps want to jack up my rent again. First, it went from $590 to $610 I renewed my lease last year. Now it's going up $640. Hell the fuck no, this dinky ~townhouse~ isn't even worth the $610. Maybe if they replaced the discolored linoleum the kitchen and installed energy efficient appliances (the fridge has rust spots on it, and when it runs it's loud). Also I'm pretty sure that any day the bathtub is going to start leaking into the living room again. And if they could please hire a painter who isn't a moron! There are holes and places where holes were plastered but not sanded down, that were painted over. We don't even have a washer/dryer hookup. It's in a good part of town (but even then this isn't some sprawling metropolis; it's a smallish Southern city), and yeah we have an extra half bathroom, but dinky.

Welp, my laptop is almost totally dead. I've been getting blue screens a lot more frequently, so I finally broke down and ordered a refurbished laptop, which I'll use until I can get a good deal on a brand new one. As I was sorting through all my files deciding what's worth saving, I found a bunch of pictures I took when I was in culinary school. Like this one:

And also lots of kitty pictures.

This month is Oz and Toby's birthmonth; sadly I do not know the exact date. But they are seven and six years old now. ;___; Oz isn't showing many signs of aging, except for being less playful than he used to be. Tob is still the same old same old, but in the back of my mind now I'm always thinking, I have maybe five more years with them, if I'm lucky. They could well make it all the way to seventeen or eighteen, but eleven or twelve is still a good long life for a cat.

My babies ;_______;

And I cannot believe that in June I'll have had Mica for a whole year. o.O

Augh, why am I sick again with the exact same symptoms I had a few weeks ago? At least now I have perfectly valid reason to not go to church for Easter. The last time my mom invited me to this new church they've been going to, I didn't really snap at her, but I did say no very emphatically. And let's just say I would never have taken that tone with her when I was a kid. But dammit, I am not a kid and I don't have to let them guilt me into going to church anymore.

I have a gut feeling that before the year is over, they will know all of my secrets. Lately I've been feeling less and less like hiding and crying when they say something homophobic and more like confronting them over it. We shall see.

(Part of me is still thinking they have to know or at least suspect, but my sister says they don't, and she was surprised when I came out. lol, I am 26 and never had a boyfriend, and have aways been a huge tomboy, why can they not put 2 and 2 together???)

About a month ago, I bought something from Amazon (first time in years that I've done so) and I signed up for the free trial of Amazon Prime so I could get free three day shipping. Course I was supposed to remember to cancel Amazon Prime so they didn't debit $79 from my bank account after the free trial ended. WHICH I OBVIOUSLY FORGOT TO DO, FML. OH WELL, I GUESS I'M BUYING MORE STUFF FROM AMAZON THAT I WOULD ORDINARILY BUY FROM WALMART FOR THE NEXT YEAR.

THE GENERAL MANAGER JUST TOLD ME I MAKE PERFECT BISCUITS. PERFECT. And on my very first day as baker the person who was training me said the muffins I made were much better looking than the last baker's. ;___;

My day is already halfway over at eight AM; this is still a thing I'm getting used to.

ALSO TODAY IS PAYDAY AND I JUST FOUND OUT THAT MY RAISE WAS BACKDATED, SO I'M GETTING PAID MY NEW RATE FOR THE WEEK BEFORE LAST, BEFORE I WAS EVEN PROMOTED.

BASICALLY I TAKE BACK ALL THE BAD THINGS I EVER SAID ABOUT MY JOB.
