Five freakin' o'clock

The cell rings. *insert scream and expletives here* It's the fridge delivery bois. WTHHHHHHHHHH? Why do they call before the freakin' sun's even up?!



Fridge
Although I measured the fridge hole (hahaha) yesterday, I COMPLETELY didn't even think about (a) how they're gonna get it OUT; and (b) how they'll get a new one IN. Woops. I have CRATES of stuff that have been shuffled out in the open to save them from being ruined in a wet closet. Uhhhh. I'm just sayin'. I hope they move shiznet. I'M not gonna do it. I'm still waiting for the whole closet drying process to occur, or for someone in maintenance to get their HVAC/R license. *insert another scream, just for the helluvit* So today, I'll have to REstock up on just staples (not counting food). All that stuff, gone. I have a hard enough time remembering to put underwear on in the mornings. Hahaha. I need to make a list. GrRRr. This weekend is getting off to a GREAAAAAT STARRRRRRRRRT.

The weekend
My knees hurt. Like SERIOUSLY bad. I'm not sure if it's the change in weather or WHAT, but it looks like I'll be shuffling around here, lovingly stroking my new fridge, and watching movies. I'M SO MUCH FUN. ENVY ME. I can't locate my T.E.N.S. unit, so er, Ultram is gonna hafta do, which just SUX0RS. Have a meeting today (casual, thankfully), and after that, I think I'm going to have to decline on dinner. Waking up was hard to do this manana. I can't IMAGINE dragging this day on longer than absolutely necessary, not even for a fun date. Isn't that a Catch-22? Pretty sure. I'm still having a hard time deciding the appropriate thing to do, all things considered, in light of last night's ridiculous episode. *sigh* It's always something.

I FINALLY did the deed
Yeah, so last night "drunk roommate of baseball boy" came back WASTED around midnight. He was screaming, singing...yeah, that. Soooo...I've had enough. As soon as he grabs the door handle to his car, I'm afraid he's gonna have trouble lifting a fork for a few weeks. HE ASKED FOR IT. Ugh. If this is what I've got to look forward to -- because of baseball boy's stoopid friends -- then I'm afraid I'll do more than just CS gas a door handle. If I made THIS step, God only knows how far I'll take it. I'm just sayin'. If you live near me, DO NOT DISTURB WHAT LITTLE SLEEP I DO GET. I only HOPE that the other night's...er, cacophony down here woke up EVERYONE ON THE TOP FLOOR. Hahahaha. Pretty sure it did. And that's all I'll say about that.

Ooops...forgot about TEH CAT
The guardian cat is BACK, and keeps returning to my condo. Umm. WHYYY? The owners have moved (I called the # on its collar), and when I picked her up this morning, I realized quickly that she's pregnant. I cannot abandon her NOW. *sobs* Whaaaaaaaat?!? I dunno what I'm gonna do about this lil situation.

That's that. Need to get ready for fridge and meeting. CAN'T. WAIT.

That is all.

You are a journalist. Help meeeee!! :)


I have to go to Gordo today to get background info for my documentary photo project. While I have a knack for taking pictures, I am pretty bad as a journalist. What kinds of questions would you ask the principal of the high school or the city council to dig up interesting stuff about a super small town in Alabama?

I might be focusing on their huge community involvement in athletics but I don't know. I still wanted to talk to city council too.


Any help/ideas are appreicated. Thanks laddddddy :)

Um...yeah. It would be faster/easier/more helpful iffn you call. I need your focus first (you should have a couple, just in case one peters out :D), what photographs will accompany the story, and also...er, you know what an inverted pyramid is, don't ya?

Is this a feature? Call me, if you would. Much easier. Danke.

Re: OMG
No, no!!! You were supposed to see my phone numbers; I just forgot this was an 'open' entry (and not friend's only) so I panicked. You should have it in your gmail and in the original response. Calleth moi on the 802#...much better. My cell gets CRAPPY reception here.

Also, find out what's important to them (those you interview). You'll get much better quotes and info if you swing it in a positive way. Since this is a photo piece, then it doesn't matter if it's fluff :-D Yay!

Don't be intimidated (if you've not done this type thing before). Remember that they look at YOU as some sort of bohemian celebrity. LOL. Make sure you pay attention to everything they have in their offices (tells you a lot about who they are, what interests them, and can provide a great ice-breaker). Don't cut your interview short, or set a 'time-frame.' You might miss out on some of the best quotes by doing this. Give the interviewee time to talk.

You'll learn that people lurrrrrrve talking about themselves and their causes, particularly when they know it's going to press/print. :)

I know what you mean about the fridge thing. Our apartment DIDN'T come with one. haha We wanted an apt so bad that we took it, anyway, though. :P

I hope that your neighbor behaves himself now...and that weather is more lovely...and I'm rambling now. hehehe

It was actually baseball boy's RUDE ARSE friend (who ALWAYS shows up late and drunk). Trust me -- after today? If he even TOUCHES his eyes/mouth/nose, he'll suffer for a week :-D LOL.

Heh *smirks*
Ohhh, and I unloaded a GOOD AMOUNT of CSS under, on top and AROUND the entire handle JUST TO MAKE SURE HE GOT IT. According to my buddies (and what I know), even if it dries, when your hands sweat, or get wet, it reactivates. *smirrrrrrrrrk*

Um...tell ya which story? About them waking me up, or me KEEPING them up? *smirk x 2* Heh.

Was there a stereo involved? If so, what you packin'?? :-)

(I have a strange male streak in me--I like to compare sound systems.)

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.
