Don’t buy lunchables

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Last night I bought some lunchables at K-Mart. I wasn’t excited about the price of them, but they are good, they fill me up, and make me feel like I have an excuse to eat cheese. I am in the habit of throwing away the cookies that come with them because cookies aren’t going to help me look hot in a swimsuit, ok neither is cheese …. Anyways, I decided to eat one for lunch today, turkey and american cheese. I diligently put the first one together, a cracker, piece of turkey, and cheese. I took my first bite and there was no crunch. The cracker was soft. Ewww. So I began inspecting all the crackers to try to determine why they were wet. I took out all the crackers and I found something very disgusting at the bottom of the cracker pile:

WTF? I believe it is a piece of rotten shriveled up ham. I have no desire to ever eat again. Thank you lunchables, I may actually lose some weight now (or die).

In other news, I found the comforter from Macy’s that goes with my bed-sheets for $79.99 at It is still sold through Macy’s but is $20 cheaper online. I added it to my Amazon wishlist and perhaps one day I will buy it for myself. I really want it. I wish I had a lot of money.

I love Amazon

I’m addicted to Recently I was offered a free Prime Account for three months so that means that everything I order is free two-day shipping. And one day shipping for $3 . It’s like instant gratification because I can buy whatever I want and get it in like a day. I just wish had a buyer-rewards program because I’d be so eligible for some free stuff. I don’t go that crazy, but I also shop on at work for stuff and use my boss’s credit card. I’ll always be a fan of Amazon because the time my stuff got stolen from the stupid USPS who delivered my package on SUNDAY (retards) … Amazon replaced it, no hassle or questions asked. And it was a combined shipment of lots of stuff (over $100) for Christmas presents and I got it all replaced before Christmas so I didn’t look like a cheapskate with no presents for anyone. Now I just get everything delivered at work because it’s safer.

I just booked my first plane ticket ever and I’m quite excited. I’m going to go up in the air, weee! I’ve never been on an airplane before. I want to find a new job because I’ve had this desire to kill some people the past few days. Except my one boss, who snuck up behind me this morning and hugged me and messed up my hair and then brought me a salad because he didn’t want me to be quote ‘hungry and sad.’ Normally this behaviour isn’t welcomed by me, but I love him. Of course if I find a new job I may not be guaranteed any paid vacation or even allowed vacation, and I have my plane ticket and nothing is going to stop me from lounging on the beach and floating in the pool all day and night.

My future roommate informed me that she wants to adopt a puppy. Ok, puppies scare me but I’m sure I’ll love it. She already has a cat that is awesome. Remind me to invest in lots and lots of lint rollers or I’m going to be a furry.

A bunch of random stuff

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

So it’s 10:30 am on a Saturday and I’m already bored. I was up today at 8:30 am today … not by choice, but regardless I couldn’t go back to sleep and so I brewed myself a big pot of coffee and now I’m ready to dance. I also feel an cold sore outbreak coming on … my lip is tingly and in the past twenty minutes two small bumps have already formed. I haven’t had one since November so I can’t complain too much. I take 2000 milligrams of lysine everyday and I use SPF chapstick with lysine and I have abided by the no chocolate, no chicken soup rule in my diet (almost) … and I’ve been cold sore free for six months now … but then yesterday I ate a brownie and on Wednesday I was out all day in the sun and had forgotten my chapstick. I knew my lips got burned a little bit because they were stinging when I got home. Sun is very bad for cold-sore proned people. So I guess I have to deal with it, I just don’t want to! If you get cold-sores then you know my whining isn’t for nothing, these things hurt and suck and are impossible to ignore. And if you have had cracked-lip or a bump on the corner of your motuh, don’t call it a cold-sore and say you know what I’m talking about … it isn’t the same thing.

Anyways, my week has been hectic as ususal at work. I was outside all day Wednesday for a festival we had. I was at the park from 9 am – 10 pm and I busted my ass all day. On Thursday I thought I was going to pass out at work. I was sunburned, tired, sore, and bruised from falling and having a table attack me when I was trying to break stuff down at the end of the night. My fingers also got a bit blistered. All morning we were setting up tables for tents and they’re the kind that you have to pull up the legs and then pull on the hinge thing to make sure they lock in place. After pulling on over 100 tables my hands hurt so bad that I wanted to cry. I like being active and doing stuff outside but I was just irritated that there were just three of us doing all of the setup and it took us until 2pm just to get all the tables, chairs and banners up. Around 1pm all of the people who were working in each tent came and they decorated their own tents so that was good. The event was fabulous, seriously. About 2,500 people showed up and the weather cooperated! I’d love to post pictures, but … oh well.

So here’s an interesting story, also related to the above paragraph. I was cleaning off tables where people had been eating and I just happened to see something shiny on the one table and went over to discover it was a cell phone. I decided to be a nice person and not throw the phone away. I had assumed that someone would call the phone eventually and see if someone had found it, but by Thursday afternoon nobody had called. I wanted to find the owner before the battery died because then I wouldn’t be able to answer it if anyone called. So I browsed through the contacts and found a number that said ‘home’ so I called it and left a message that I had found a phone. Then on Thursday evening, someone in their address book kept calling and hanging up on me. I kept answersing ‘hello … do you know who this phone belongs to?’ There would be no reply and then it would say that the call had ended. Finally the fourth time this person called I answered and said ‘Hi, I found this phone the other night and would like to return it to its owner.’ The person finally said ‘oh yeah, here’s her daughter’s cell phone number.’ So I call that number and leave a message. Finally, around 11pm the lady calls my cell phone and is like “OMG Thank you so much!!!!” It turns out that I actually know her because I planned and staffed an event that she came to a few months ago and I had the pleasure of getting to know her a bit. She goes on about how her life is so crazy that she didn’t even realize it was missing because she has six cell phones. Ok, who the hell has six cell phones? Anyways, she says she’ll come by first thing in the morning and pick it up where I work. She never came. Guess you don’t really care when you have five other phones! See, I try to do something nice and went to way too much trouble to hunt this person down … I should have just kept the phone. It was such a nice little Samsung. Just like my nice Samsung that I was forced to quit using because Cingular people are bastards.

In other unrelated news, Bryan and I went on a hunt yesterday … yes my first experience at this cool thing called geocaching. It was fun even though I did not find the hidden treasure. I was sooo close and I missed it. Bryan ended up finding it and I was mad that I was right beside it but oh well … I got to carry around a GPS that was surprisingly not too hard to use. I thought I wouldn’t understand it, but it was pretty easy. I think it is a fun hobby … it’s like playing hide and seek! We wanted to go to Mad Mex for Cinco de Mayo but it was way too crowded so we were going to go to Max and Erma’s in Monroeville but Bryan spotted Boston Market before we got there so we ate there. So much for Cinco de Mayo. It was very good … I’m sad to have to admit it, but their turkey dinner was better than the one at Kings. I still like Kings because their mashed potatoes and stuffing and cranberry sauce are sooo good, but Boston Market’s turkey was better than Kings. Not that I’d EVER pass up a turkey dinner at King’s or anything … just nice to know that there are other places that have Thanksgiving everyday :-). Then we came back here and fell asleep by 11pm. Guess we were both pretty tired from a long week, hunting for treasure, and eating turkey!

I’m defrosting some chicken in the refrigerator because I’m going to attempt to make my made up chicken-cabbage-stir-fry meal later. I love Napa Cabbage more than anything in the world and I’m always trying to think of things I can make with it. Napa Cabbage is the cabbage they use in Asian salads but I don’t really care for them because I don’t like the peanut oil-dressing that they use. Last time I made chicken napa cabbage soup. It was delicious. Just like chicken soup, except more cabbage than noodles. I found out you can use it in stir-fry too so I bought chicken and lots of frozen stir-fry veggies. I might use some soy sauce and add a few other things in too. However, I bought the cabbage three days ago and now it is looking a bit wilted. I hope it is just the outside layer … if not I’m going to have to go buy more. And I wish I could be a vegetarian because I paid $12 for a three pound bag of chicken! I swear, chicken used to be cheaper. I don’t know what happened. I’m just going to blame it on Giant Eagle. That always makes me feel better. I spent $42 the other day on chicken, frozen veggies, and fresh vegetables. I ended up buying organic celery because I just wanted the celery hearts and the organic ones were cheaper than the non-organic ones. And it was $5.80 for three tomatoes! Seriously, I need to buy a house and grow a garden so I can have all the free vegetables I want. It’s trips like that to the grocery store that remind me why I eat out so often.

I have no symptoms of anything, perhaps I’m dead

I need a get rich quick scheme, a bag of money, or a new job. The new job is probably most realisitic. Anyways, Courtney and I are going on vacation this summer and I really can’t afford it but I might as well has some fun for a week because I certainly make up for it the rest of the year. Yeah, I’m lacking in the fun department. Sometimes I stick my fingers in electrical sockets because I’m bored.

My weekend was fun though. Went out with Bryan and some of his co-workers to Texas Roadhouse where you can throw peanut shells on the floor. I found that it was more entertaining to throw them on Bryan but I was probably the only one enjoying that. On Saturday I went out with Julie to Silky’s Bar and we drank some beers and talked about stuff like jobs and wedding planning. The rest of my weekend time was allotted to talking to Bryan or playing Sims.

Other than that, my life is dull and I don’t have anything good to write about. I go to work. I come home after work and do nothing. I’m not happy and I’m not sad. I’m bored and lonely, and indifferent about mostly everything. I have absolutely no anxiety or trouble sleeping though so maybe I’m depressed. Am I depressed? I don’t know because I also don’t cry and for those who really know me, you know that I cry on average at least 2 times a week about something. I haven’t cried in a long long time, maybe months. My mom would be proud of me, she always yells at me for being such a wuss.

I’m looking forward to vacation, moving, buying a car, and visiting my grandma.
