The 411

So. I've been incredibly busy lately with the job hunt, the dog training, and other things to the point to where I'm usually too tired to update. Much will be left out of this entry, too, since I'm again exhausted thanks to...

Last night
I worked a property auction last night. In case none of you guys have been to one, they're kinda funny. I literally, however, lost three pounds because of the running. I was the auctioner's assistant which meant that whomever won the bid, I'd have to escort them to lenders, banks, attorneys, etc. In other words, I was the Vanna White of the auction. Very disconcerting doing my thing while all those people watched. It was really funny listening to the auction which sounded something like this:

I'mgoingfor$7500it'sastealdoihear8000,8000doihear9500listenfolksthisispropertyyoudon'twanttomissoutonasit'slocatedinagreatzipcode...

*whew* I got tired listening. The scary part was, I had to intently observe the bidders and keep up with what he was saying to make sure I had the right winners down. It was great fun, and great money (well, for a short gig like that), but I'm paying for it right now.

The spawnlette and I, earlier that morning, had the worst fight of our lives over a stupid jacket that one of her idiotic friends accidentally left over here. It was BAD. So bad that I'd bet most of my friends would've slapped the living hellia outta their kids had the same thing happened. I got all zen on her, and refused to "engage" in her yelling and screaming that she wished I was dead, that I was the anti-christ and probably played golf with satan. It was that bad. Then, when I dropped her off and told her I loved her (she snorted at that), she picked up this HUGE BOULDER and tried to throw it at the car. She tried. And it was hilarious. We ended up making up over text messaging yesterday so that last night wouldn't be all scary. Someone said something like "even when your kids say they hate you, they really love you" and the spawnlette looked at me and said "yep, that's the truth". Mannnnnnnnn does it hurt, though, when they say that. Gonna be a rough couple of teen years for us.

The weekend
Still leaving out a bunch of stuff. So one of my great high school buds is a computer whiz, and fixed one of my computers, with the intentions of fixing the other two. He's BRILLIANT. I didn't realize in high school how smart he was, since he was a trumpet player (LOL), but shouldn't gotten a clue when he got that o so important trumpet solo at the beginning of our competition's lineup. Now he's gonna help me with my car. He came along JUST in time, since my finances are GONE. I'm scared. Yeah, enough of all that. Otherwise, I was spending time with my seemingly level-headed spawn who loves his kid, and wants him as her "brothah from anothah mothah". Kinda funny, considering my friend's ex showed up and was NONE TOO HAPPY to see me standing there, particularly since we grew up together and um...are VERY different.

Just life
Having some car troubles, and bizarre dreams lately. My dreams are telling me things I don't want to believe. I'm tempted to write really bad poetry about a STUPID SITUATION which recently occurred, but I'm resisting the urge (to avoid, as I've said, gossip). Some people follow REAL closely around here. Traffic is as STUPID AS THE DAY IS LONG no matter what time of the day I'm out innit, and I've about had it with bad drivers. I'll go postal one day, and start firing a weapon. I can feel it. I've had some serious disappointment lately, too, that shall go unsaid. Just trying to ooze along and hope that these freakin' crises resolve themselves with time and effort. The dog has become my nemesis. He'll be lucky to make it through another night without me dropping him off at Nan Yang's. Just sayin'...(tm). We went BACK to court over the mishandling of my parent's estate, and it's dragging around back into April *sigh*. I'm sick of this, and hate to say it but feel it was mother's last "hoorah" for us. Family members agree with me, so I'm not alone on this one.

Yeah. So that's that. I'm sick and tired of many things, but again, in the name of no gossip, I'm keeping my yap shut. Just know that I'm not stupid, mkaythnx (even though I say mkaythnx).

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
