Karma [17 Jul 2010|10:02pm]
[ mood | resigned ]

I've been calling my father for the past two days, but the phone doesn't ring, just goes to an automatic voicemail that I'm sure he isn't getting any messages from.
Unfortunately, I got my anti-social tendencies from my father, which means he doesn't care too much about talking to people, and probably doesn't even know there's anything wrong with his phone.
I now have a sense of how people feel when they try to get in touch with me :P

Leftovers [23 Feb 2010|11:36pm]
So this morning I found pieces of a mouse in the hall outside my bedroom. Most of a leg, some innards, and the tail. Gross. But I hate mice, and love mousers. Good job, Chloe! I'm glad you found that mouse so tasty.

Okay, so I'm in Lambertville, NJ, and the tv here gets more New York than Philly channels, even though Philly is closer geographically. Unfortunately, I didn't think about this fact much until it came time to watch the Eagles game this afternoon, and the Jets were on instead of my team. So I put on the radio to listen to the game while I downloaded the software necessary to watch the game online. Finally, success! And my beloved team won, despite a dreadful second half. I could barely stand the third quarter. Anyway...Dallas plays tonight, and I hope they lose, because, well, they're Dallas. And, hey, the Giants were incredibly awful today and got their asses kicked, so yay! Good day thus far.

I <3 the Phillies! [29 Oct 2009|12:39am]
[ mood | gleeful ]

Tonight I learned how to pronounce 'Teixeira'. I also learned that the Phillies are awesomeness. Oh, wait, I already knew that. Did I learn anything else? Oh, yes, Cliff Lee is a god who can field a ball, without even glancing at it. Behind his back. No, really.

So, I made my dad watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. It's not really his kind of thing.

[ mood | mellow ]

So I had Chinese with reikisprite and libralyte the last time we got together, and of course fortune cookies were included. And then the other day I came across an article online about American Chinese food, and fortune cookies were mentioned, and, well...
Courtesy of www.rinkworks.com:

Quotations from Fortune Cookies:

* "You will find a bushel of money."

* "Your smile will tell you what makes you feel good."

* "You are going to have some new clothes."

* "Your family is young, gifted and attractive."

* "There is a true and sincere friendship between you both."

* "The night life is for you."

* "Face facts with dignity."

* "You are magnetic in your bearing."

* "You are free to invent your life."

* "Good sense is the master of human life."

* "Maybe someday we will live on the moon!"

* "Don't panic."

* "If you don't have time to live your life now, when will you?"

* "Ignorance never settles a question."

* "You have an unusual equipment for success, use it properly."

* "Avert misunderstanding by calm, poise, and balance."

* "Simplicity and clarity should be your theme in dress."

* "You have a potential urge and the ability for accomplishment."

* "Do you believe? Endurance and persistence will be rewarded."

* "Good Luck bestows upon you. You will get what your heart desires."

* "Pat yourself on the back for creating an opportunity."

* "It could be better, but it's good enough."

* "You will find a thing. It may be important."

* "The calling that has sounded will not be the lasting call."

* "In youth and beauty, wisdom is rare."

* "This is the year when ingenuity stands high on the list."

* "The best year-round temperature is a warm heart and a cool head."

* "Ssoorrrryy,, dduupplleexx sswwiittcchh oonn.."

And I couldn't help it. Every single time I read one, I added "in bed" to the end of it in my head. It works really well for most of these.

Did you know there is a game called "Killer Bunnies and the Quest for the Magic Carrot"? Seriously.

I've been a little bit hooked on Town House crackers lately. I don't know why, but these buttery crackers have been like Ruffles to me- I can't have just one.

No Smoking (Under Penalty of the Rachel's Wrath) [27 Aug 2008|03:11pm]
[ mood | annoyed ]

Okay, so at work they hired a new part-time person. I don't know her well, only see her when she's leaving and I'm arriving, or vice versa. I have no problem with her.


She's a smoker. That in itself isn't a problem, but I can smell it in the office and at the main desk now. That I have a problem with.

I am not happy about this.

Ouch. [20 Aug 2008|03:13pm]
Monday I had a root canal procedure done. This coming Monday I go back to the endodontist for part 2. Then I need to get a crown for it. And all of this without dental insurance. My bank account hurts more now than my teeth ever have.

Busy days [12 Aug 2008|04:41pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Wow, but a lot has been going on lately.

On Saturday libralyte and I had one of the Best Days Ever. Friday night had been great, cuz we went to dinner with reikisprite and papabear1979, then stayed overnight at their place. Saturday libralyte says, since we're here, why don't we go to that newish shopping center and explore? So we did. It turned into me getting two pairs of shoes and her getting two pairs of pants, and both of us reading for a while in Borders.

Finally we went to get some food, and as we're eating libralyte says, why don't we go to a movie, since the theater is right down the street? So we start thinking about what's out right now, and nothing immediately comes to mind. Then, "I still haven't seen Batman!" "Neither have I!" ::high five:: So we finally got to see The Dark Knight, and it was definitely better than Batman Begins. I really thought it was great. On the way home we ended up having a conversation about the more recent depictions of various comic book characters (like Iron Man).

Included in the conversation was the distinction between Bruce Wayne and Batman (Bruce is sexy, Batman is intimidating, as is proper) and a lust-filled tangent about 300. It was a wonderful day.

Yesterday I went to Eagles Traing Camp with forrest_930 and a couple others. The day's practice ended early because of the weather, but I was mostly okay with that because it was colder than expected and I was freezing in my t-shirt and sandals.

We spent the afternoon at her place, where I was given excess veggies from her garden, and got to watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. I had been terribly remiss in not watching it before, but that's been taken care of. I highly recommend that you watch it.

Today I had my vision checked, because I know my vision has worsened. So I went and the doc upgraded my lenses. I should have my new glasses in another week or so. Yea! No more squinting!

I'm going to go rest now. I feel like with everything going on, plus late-night Olympic coverage, I haven't gotten enough sleep in days and days.

I'm sick. I have this cold that's been getting worse for the past week. I'm losing my voice now. I may have a low-grade fever. And yet, here I am, at work. Probably not the best thing. I hope I don't infect anyone else.
