Ugh, when you wish a cop had been there to see some idiot and pull them over.

Me and two other cars were not far off from being hit by this person who SHOULD very much have had a red light. Not even a situation or a red light runner, because I was several cars back in my own lane which was still green when I went... There's should not even be green until ours turns red again.

Luckily I was past this person soon enough, but was in the middle of going through when I realized this car was just coming right at me. Then in my side mirror saw the next two cars behind veer around it. Fortunately it's not a high speed road.

I don't know if this person was on drugs, drunk, old, on a phone, just an asshole, or dead behind the damn wheel, but he or she never even slowed or attempted to pause. Just kept moving forward like they hadn't a clue or didn't give a damn that there were other cars. WTF. I wish I'd been able to note their plate number... They're going to kill someone one of these days.

Never heard any sirens or anything, so I guess they made it down the hill to the next intersection, so presumably they were alive and not having a health crisis. (Where that the case they probably wouldn't have gotten past that Y-shaped intersection I was at in the first place.) But they need a beating and a removal of their driving ability.

I'm glad the other cars behind me did not get hit, but man I'd have liked the chance to look at each other like What the hell was that?? I'm just shocked they never even tried to slow down or break as if to notice that other cars exist.

when words you never use pop up in your head....that you KNOW are the right word to use in that case, but you have to look it up anyway just to be sure.

Lady coughing behind me while I'm working and I'm immediately thinking You better not be sick ...and coughing behind me and at the product I have to handle for my job, thanks.

Few min later I hear her on her phone, sounding like she's canceling plans with someone because she's "been really sick the last two days." But you bothered coming out to the store?? Little hypocritical not calling from home, esp since it was just the Dollar Tree, and not even the food aisle, so whatever you're getting there could probably have waited. People, I swear. *sigh*

I'd like to be able to do some voice and song recordings, but I feel like my voice training needs work.


And also it's too early in the morning.



I've been playing so much Portal, I want to do the two GLaDOS songs. It's a pretty good place to start for my range capabilities, I think.

Been having bizarre and disturbing dreams again the last two nights. Night before last were both about my kitty Demona who died several months ago, right after we found Cinnamon, who is currently at the vet, so that MIGHT explain it. But early this morning I had another one about some random kittens we found and were taking home from- a research facility of some sort? And one had a chip of wood stuck in one ear, and they said it had been injured and they just left it in because it was too dangerous to take out. I tried to carefully pull it out, but the ear cartilage came out with it. The cat didn't seem to be bothered by it, though the ear went floppy. So I stuck it back in, wood and all, then pulled on the wood again while holding the ear, and it came out fine. But it was truly a weird dream.

The two from the other night were even weirder. The first one was about an electrical fire that started in my grandmother's house, and while others were trying to put it out (with water, I might add) I went to unplug a second outlet that was smoking, and discovered that Demona had become caught on the cord by the claws of one foot, but what made it disturbing and weird was that only her front half was there. As in, her back half appeared to have been severed. But she was still fussing about being stuck to the cord, and complained when I began to pull her claws loose from the cord.

The second one was almost as creepy, but less gory, at least. I was out in a wooded area, and saw her sitting in a small but deep puddle. I called to her, and she started to crawl toward me, apparently unable to walk. So I picked her up, and saw that her feet were all missing. I found them in the puddle, all simply lying in the water as if they had been detached. No reason why, just came off.

These dreams are keeping me from sleeping well, when I should have been getting a good night's rest on my days off so we could get stuff done for our apartment inspection today. I took an extra day off work just so I could be here for it, since he goes to dialysis today, and doesn't want themcoming in without someone here. Aaaand now it looks like they might not even come because of the weather being cold and rainy today.

Aww man, those suck


A long while back, I had a dream about a cat that died when I was fourth grade. He was just "given back" to us by someone as if nothing had happened and no time had passed for him.


Now, I have no idea what my boyfriend's mom is dreaming about, but I was listening to her talk in her sleep while sitting awake in the living room. She asked "where are your arms?"

When something seems both fated to be & sabotaged by the cosmos simultaneously. Right place/wrong time kinda stuff.

Grind... Aside from the fact that people just love to trash my card departments in stupidly frustrating ways, getting really tired of them apparently stealing handfuls of the envelopes too and it seems worse lately. At the dollar store, I'm not all that surprised, but at BJ's, where I kind of expect the people to be a bit better behaved since it actually requires membership to shop there... come on now.

Maybe they're just envelopes in their mind, but it is a waste of my time if I have to hunt around to try to find any excess in other card pockets that I can put there, and preferably all one color that would be appropriate, because I can't just leave it without.

Stupid thing is, if they catch us while we're taking down leftover cards after a holiday is over, they can totally have as many of the leftover envelopes as they want.


Still beats regular retail work though.

So, I'm not able to export a Skype conversation.

I've moved to Discord, but I'd like to have that conversation on record, since it's a long-running RP.


All of Skype's updates have rendered it impossible to save just about anything and it's the worst.

Take home exams.

I have an online midterm that I have been doing for the last week. You can do a little save it and go back to it. The instructions said the midterm will take three hour. It took me longer than that. You even have the option to take it twice if you did not do good the first time. Sounds nice right? Well I just this second took a second time and still got the same amount wrong that I did the last time. I even managed to get wrong one or two questions I originally got right the first time, that hurts! (though I did get a few right that I had originally gotten wrong). I still have four essay questions that haven't been graded yet so if I managed to do ok on them I might get a D+...I hate how I suck at taking tests. I have always been a bad test taker, and they always shoot an otherwise decent over-all good grade in the class down.

Grind... the weather has turned a lot cooler so the mice are back. Frustratingly the most common area for them seems to be the side of the house my bedroom is on, either along the side of the attic, under its flooring, or high up in the walls. And this one did not care how much I banged on the walls, or where, after it woke me up about a quarter after 5am chewing loud enough on the wood of the house that it may as well have been a damned squirrel.

Loud enough to drive me crazy and prevent me from going back to sleep... so I ended up giving up and going up to the attic at that hour with sticky traps left over from last year winter and bait I had made.

At least by the time I went back to bed it was quite, but I wish we could somehow safely turn the cats (well, just one of them) loose up there and let them take care of it...

Sorry, I missed this before. As near as we can tell, it was just swollen lymph nodes in the belly and inflammation of her colon. Maybe she ate something she shouldn't have, and it caused some minor infection or something. But she's fine now, thouvh she has a shaved and stitched belly from the surgery they did to look for obstructions. She will have to go back for MORE stiches, soon, though. She's a tad older than we thought, which means her first heat cycle is probably right around the corner. Not looking forward to that, but at least it's much cheaper to take care of.

Gah, swollen lymph nodes on kittens give me bad memories; we lost a kitten to histoplasmosis and that was one of the symptoms. At her age, you probably could have taken care of her spay during the first surgery. Though, I can understand why they wouldn't do that; it would be too much at once.
