7:49 pm - Pier One Imports

Everyone wish me luck. I have an interview at Pier One tomorrow at 9:00 in the morning. Now, why I chose 9:00 in the morning will remain a mystery even to me, but I'll be there at 8:45 so I can show them what it means to be punctual.

current mood: excited

11:48 pm - I don't want to jinx it.

My daddy might be able to come home for Christmas. It'd only be, like, a day, but it'd be a day with my daddy.

Yes, I miss him a lot. Can you tell?

8:18 pm - Life is good

Let's talk about the important stuff. My grandmother--the one who told me that the mentally ill just need to pray harder--has come to the conclusion that she has a disease that sometimes makes her cough, and I have a disease that sometimes makes me cry. We both benifit from medication and other forms of treatment, and it has nothing to do with how hard we pray.

Most people don't realize what a breakthrough this is for me and my grandmother. Now, if I could outline how I love Jesus--he had some great things to say, set up some really logical lifestyle tips, and was a total feminist--but don't consider myself a Christian without giving her heart failure, she and I will be on great terms. She even knows that the whole eating disorder wasn't entirely a weight loss thing.

She listened, and she understood. It's like one more knot in my back has uncurled.

Now, there are work things to discuss. I didn't make shit, but I'm not complaining. I had a lot of great guests, and they were easy to take care of. If I don't have to do much, I guess I can't expect huge tips, right? I just kept drinks filled.

Well, there were these two black ladies that I just knew were going to be dificult. I went over to them, and I was my bright and cheery self. They started asking all these questions about our refillable drinks, so I was thinking "No tip! Run away!" But, as the conversation progressed, I realized that they really did want a drink they had to pay for, but we didn't have anything to fit the bill.

One of the ladies told me to suggest alternative drinks to management, and I gave her the RFT web address and told her to write to the main office with her suggestion..."and be sure to tell them that Maggie was a joy to have for a server," I joked. Both ladies laughed, and the one said she'd be sure to do just that.

Later, she had a complaint about the shrimp, and I told her to put it in that letter to RTI..."after you tell them how fabulous Maggie is," I joked again.

Now, I'm pretty sure she's really going to write in to tell them how great I was.

Oooh! And, I almost forgot to mention the cute stoner boy at Outback that kept flirting with me. I told him to end every sentence with "in my pants," and he cracked up. Anyway, I got my check from him, and I saw where he'd written down my Coke order. It's what I drank while I was there (Okay, I was bad), but he'd crossed it out and written water. He didn't charge me for the Cokes I was downing while I was there. Heh....

current mood: impressed

9:22 pm - show me that smile again, don't waste another minute on your crying..

I am.. beyond ecstatic because while on vacation my.. my.. well, i'm not sure what you'd call her, besides just.. well, mine.. my jessie and I got some quality time together. Which translates to.. I got smoochies from the most gorgeous glittering dancing fairy magic genie mermaid girl EVER. And..

Me: Are you my girl?
Her: Always.

*wipes big crocodile tear away*

I can honestly say that it's been worth the bad times, the fighting, the space and time we both needed to grow and mature, and the space and time we both still need.. for us to have gotten to the place we are now. To the comfort zone, the one where there's no pressure, no jealousy, no worries and just.. love. Just friendship. Just us.

Just lying together in bed watching Friends and Roseanne reruns. Little things that others take for granted when they aren't trying to stage a really intense long distance relationship while being essentially too young and insecure to do anything about it being long distance.

I'm just.. so happy that things are going so well for me right now in that area.

It more than makes up for almost the entire rest of that vacation sucking beyond the telling of it.

baby you and me, we gotta be
the luckiest dreamers that never quit dreaming
as long as we keep on givin'
we can take anything that comes our way

current mood: loved

5:16 pm - my happy day

I just paid the first month's rent on my first apartment...I am so excited! I have been beaming all day. After three years of life in campus dorms, I am soooo looking forward to my own space. My own little space...my own kitchen...my own furniture...my own TV shows...my own music....no one else has any say in my apartment but me, cuz I'm the one with the key. I am so thrilled at finally having a place of my own live, work, and be happy. This is going to go a loooong way in relieving some of my stress. Happy day!!!! :-)

current mood: chipper

2:15 pm - New Community

For anyone who's ever bristled at hearing that a skeletal model or actress was "so hot," for anyone who's ever tried to explain that fasting isn't a good diet plan, and for anyone who's ever watched some boney ass supergirl beat down the movie monster while wondering how she hasn't been snapped like the twig she is, I've created busst, or Bodies Under Scrutiny Standing Together. It's a place to voice your concern and annoyance. It's a place to call out the companies and celebraties who really make you long for the days of Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe. It's a place for those who want to educate and to act.

I'm still getting things set up, and I'd love any help anyone would like to give. Just e-mail me at LilBabyNobody@aol.com.

2:12 pm - Crash and Burn

I probably failed a test today. I guess I studied so much my brain decided to go on strike or something. It was horrible, humiliating, and psychologically painful. But, here's the amazing part...

...I'm okay.

Life doesn't revolve around my test scores. I'm gonna be fine. If I actually have friends who will give me a hard time about it, then they weren't my friends to begin with. The people who really matter don't care about my grades. They care about me.

Tomorrow, I have another test in another subject. I might do well on it, I might not. Whatever I get won't matter by June. You know what matters? Me.

And I'm a lot more fun than test scores anyway, no matter how high or low those scores might be.

current mood: okay

4:25 pm - Ah, gentle muse...

It's been so long since I've really written anything aside from some very sad poetry and rants, that I was completely blown away when this story popped into my head, begging to be written...and I wrote it! The creative spark is finally back and I have so many things I need to work on now that I can.

I get to play Season Two Willow! *does a lil dance* Our Buffy chat has done the Time Warp again, and our step to the right has plopped us right down in the beginning of Season Two. The best news? Since people's memories were altered by the whole monk thing in Season Five, I get to keep Dawn, too! *wiggles s'more*

And, can anybody tell I got to go to the Rocky Horror Picture Show Saturday night? Not only did I go, but they let me play Janet! Janet! It was soooooo cool!

8:08 pm - Hell yeah!

Look, I know I was really vague about the whole American Idol experience, and I kind of wanted to forget it happened. However, masochist that I am, I've been watching the show.

The girl that did my hair for the audition is going to Hollywood! Woohoo! Go Vanessa! I'm all happy and shit, even though I haven't kept in touch with any of these people.

current mood: ecstatic

So, everybody must giggle at the braindeadedness of me. As br0k3nsoul will tell you, I have a thing about candles. I keep them around my computer, beside my bed, and periodically burn them just to relax. So, after a wonderful meal from Wendy's (Classic Single with cheese, 5 piece nuggets), I went to take a drink from the soda beside me. Funny thing about that is that I didn't have a soda beside me. I had a redish candle. Fortunatly, I saw it for what it was before I tried to take a swig off the hardened wax.


current mood: amused

this song makes me happy.

it makes me sad, too, because i desperately love a girl by the name of jessie. which most-if-not-all-of-you know.

but underneath the sadness, i*ve been known to cry tears of joy just because this song is so magickal.

current mood: sore

Today is my little sister's birthday. vicki_stixxx turned sixteen today, and had a modestly sized party that I got out of work early to attend. (<---First Happy Thing: I got to leave work at 4:30, when I was scheduled a mid.) She came to the door, and we made faces through the window for a moment. When she finally opened the door for me, she threw her arms around me and told me how I was the best sister in the world. (<---Second Happy Thing: There is at least one person in the world that has me on some kind of pedestal, which puts me almost at ground level.) She dragged me into the living room to say hello to her friends, and laughed about how alike she and I are, and I finally saw her mom. Again, Vicki bragged about having the best sister in the world, making it clear that it's a very personal compliment, and not just something she says because I'm a relative. Also, apparently, she really liked the skull and crossbones tennis shoes I gave her.

current mood: exhausted
