Soooooo this thing is all set up now yay.

Not that I ever update anything anyway, but I can try at least. /o/

Now time for beer and iconing.
dalekpatronus: (WHO ✪ wuzzat?)
I live, really.

Nothing much going on, just work and stuff and things.

Bossu waifu has been upgraded to preggobeast. I dread what's going to happen as she gets further along, but I'm hoping it at least means that she ends up taking some time off and giving everyone a chance to breathe.

I'm still trying to come up with something else to do, I just have days that I don't care about any of it anymore and I really do wish I had the ability to just walk out like so many other people have.

I have a few discontents here and there, some bouts with apathy that are mostly work and computer related, but they tend to pass.

[livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction really does help me through a lot of it and I'm really so grateful for it. She puts up with me and makes me feel better at the end of the day, I couldn't be happier about that.

dalekpatronus: (TOA ✪ HEARTS :|)
RENAMED!

[livejournal.com profile] kamicomplex [livejournal.com profile] brobotics.

Still the same Sonia that doesn't update about important things nearly enough. YOU HAVE BEEN INFORMED, SO NO FREAKING OUT, KAY?

In other news, I've been coding adverts and stuff all night for the game that [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction and I have been working on. And on Wednesday I almost broke my toe. /o/

dalekpatronus: (LUCY ✪ STARE INTO YOUR SOUL)
I needed an excuse to use this icon. I can't look at it too long because it's like they're staring into my soul.

It's windy and I hate it. I'm also still tired of all the drama.

This is relevant to how I feel about all of that.

What I'm not tired of is how awesome and cuddly and super fantastic [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction is. :3 That will never get old for me. ❤

We were supposed to go to wal-mart tonight, but with as windy as it is I really don't want to leave the house again. The mall was good, the chinese food afters was even better. I drank the whole pot of tea and then my stomach felt all swishy and liquidy.

So maybe tomorrow we'll make it to the store. Maybe. We'll see.

dalekpatronus: (BONES ✪ Cocky)
Long day was long, but rather fun in the end. Got to sleep in until somewhere around one, which was nice. After that I got ready and my mom and I went shopping for a few odds and ends.

Managed to find a pair of black pants (which I've been trying to find for ages) that fit and actually look nice. Got Chick-Fil-A today as well, which was immensely delicious. I just wish it weren't so far out of the way, I would go there more often. I'm sure those chicken nuggets are lace with a drug of some sort, how delicious they are.

Went to Wal-Mart and got a couple more things. Very exciting things that I'm very excited to have! They had the halloween stuff on sale, which still included some candy and I managed to pick up a crazy awesome marshmallow skull. This thing is seriously as big as my head and weighs a pound. I don't even know how I'm going to eat all of it, but I'll try. There's not much point in just...keeping it. I also got a hat that I love and I feel like I want to wear every single day.

I'm not looking forward to tomorrow, a day spent out in shithole city to get things ready for a dumb yard sale for my aunt's crap. Though, with the way mom is feeling today we're not likely to go and I think I'll be fine with that. Not that I want my mom to continue feeling sick, but I just really don't want to go. What's worse is that I won't know whether we're going until she gets up in the morning, which means I don't know what time I need to get to bed. I guess I'll just crash when I'm ready and have an energy drink or something if it ends up being to early for me to function.

I have about a million shows to catch up on this week, not to mention the fact that I want to finish watching Community and I'm shamefully enjoying Buffy. I almost wish I hadn't realised how many people were in that show that I really like, I would have never started watching it. Now I just feel compelled to finish even though I kind of find myself really unimpressed with the title character. :| I just watch for everyone else. I guess it was bound to happen eventually.

dalekpatronus: (WHO ✪ dat so?)
Derp, derp, derp. I meant to be getting stuff together tonight, but instead I'm sitting here on my ass and looking at icons.

The day was long even though I wasn't scheduled for very much time, it was just that I worked my ass off. Haha, ass ass ass.

I swear, I'm so fucking giddy and excited about next week it's almost ridiculous. I've been having a really hard time getting my words out though, my brain moving too fast for my mouth. Today I was trying to say that zombies can't drive cars because they don't possess the motor skills, but it came out as zombies can't drive skills. And hahaha, I just realized how much funnier that was. Can't DRIVE because they have no MOTOR skills. Oh god, I kill myself sometimes.

Speaking of zombies, majority of my dreams lately have been made up of zombies and Doctor Who. Though, I have to say the strangest was the one where I woke up knowing full well that Doctor Who and How I Met Your Mother had somehow melded into one show. I think it was neat, but I can't be too sure.

And now back to something and something and nothing at all.

dalekpatronus: (WHO ✪ HAY YOU GUYS)
Excellent, just a few more days before it's time to go.

So many plans and things I'm looking forward to. The company, Disney, Knotts, the great hair adventure. Tuesday can't get here quickly enough.

Managed to get an Axe travel set from wal-mart, it'll be better in the long run to have the small amounts. That way I don't have to worry about shoving the larger things into my suitcase and I won't have to worry about things exploding on me once I get back too.

One more day of work and then Sunday I really need to start getting things put together, write out my list so I don't forget anything. Phone charger, gps stuff, pajamas and all that good stuff. I'll try not to leave stuff behind at the hotel this time around too.

Double checked on the schedule at the hair place, Sunday I'll definitely be going to get my haircut before I go. It's really too difficult to do anything with right now. I really would like to try something different, but everything I look for ends up seeming more like a fauxhawk than anything and I'm not positive I could pull it off. Still going to be bold and do my whole head with the silver, but I should get the red just in case it doesn't go as planned.

Monday we may be going with my nephews to do something fun, I think I'll be hoping that the aquarium idea wins out. We went to the zoo before and it doesn't look like anyone else really wants to go see the Bodies thing as much as I do, plus it's a little on the expensive side...so fish and things work for me just as well. :|

dalekpatronus: (COCKER ✪ let me out)
I remember when I was little that my mom made it a point to tell me that I should always make sure to check the gardening gloves for bugs.

I'm so glad she told me that because since then I've always checked my shoes to make sure there wasn't anything in them.

Today there was a giant moth in one of my shoes. I would have freaked if I'd just stuck my foot right into it. :|

Now I have to go work on my aunt's shithole house, so for now I leave you with this:

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK YOUR SHOES BEFORE YOU PUT THEM ON, GUYS.

dalekpatronus: (SEGEL ✪ SOMEONE LEFT THE CAKE OUT)
Today I held a puppy that had one of it's legs freshly amputated. It was the most adorable little thing and seemed to like me quite a bit, I almost didn't want to give her back to the lady that was taking care of her. I wish I had gotten a picture of her too, adorable little trooper that she was. :c

What I'd really like to do is get my hands on the dickhead that hurt her in the first place, only reason she had to have the amputation is because some worthless piece of shit cut off part of her leg and dropped her in the bushes. Like to see them survive with a leg missing. Rather see them dead though.

Got to sleep late and then went a few places with my mom before stopping to pick up the truck. They did a really nice job on the side where the damage was done, now let's see if we can keep it looking that nice. Stopped at the bank to give my mom my half of the deductible and realised that I had no clue how to withdraw from the bank through the tellers. :| You would think I'd done it at least once before, but no. As it turned out it was really simple to do, so that was a relief.

Need to move more money into savings to hold onto for the trip. I think keeping 100 in checking should be sufficient until I get paid next. Then all of that is going to go toward AmEx and then I get paid one more time while I'm gone. Thankfully I'll just be out for a week this time, so making up the money to pay the next round for the card shouldn't be too bad.

Blah blah blah, money money money, blah blah blah.

I really want to do something other than sit around today. Even if it's just to go somewhere and look around idk. I really wanted to stop at the Spirit store but my mom didn't really seem to keen on the idea. She tried to give me excuses like 'I don't care' and 'I'm too old' which totally don't fly since she like the Halloween stuff as much as I do. :|

I almost don't want to hatch my Manaphy egg, they look so cool. B|

dalekpatronus: (VK ✪ Hnnnn)
Day full of stuff. Some good and some bad. I think I did too much, running around all over the place after just barely feeling more like myself. Now I just feel awful again and don't want to do anything other than sit or sleep.

I bought some stuff that I needed, more shampoo and gel and dye for my touchups. I'm trying to figure out what colour I want to do my little streak, the purple keeps fading into this weird aqua and everyone takes note when it does. Maybe this time I'll really just try for the white again, we'll see.

Finally got some Burger King too and it was delicious. Mom and I had some good conversations about all kinds of stuff and then I realised that I probably need to find my bioplast earrings to wear on the plane in October. Like hell I'm going to let them take jewelry away because it's too pointy or something retarded like that. Plus they would be a bitch to take out at the scanners and then put back in. Unless I make it a point to take them out ahead of time, but the plastic would really be so much easier to deal with. I could just change them after landing or something.

Found out that my nephew is no longer the sensitive boy that he used to be, he's turning into a hateful person and it actually hurt quite a bit to realise this. I know when trying to express my feelings on it to my mom I started crying because I should have known he would end up like this, but I guess there's just no stopping it at this point. It was more disappointing than anything, I suppose, knowing that he used to be a good kid and now he's just...he says terrible things that I would expect to hear out of people that are completely ignorant.

dalekpatronus: (WHO ✪ HAY YOU GUYS)
Went shopping today in an attempt to find one or two more pairs of jeans to wear for work and came back with things that I absolutely didn't need.

Bought another gun for Elliot at a thrift store that already had a crap ton of brand new Halloween stuff out. Two dollars isn't bad and no shipping, so at least I have a replacement for the one that broke at Fanime. There was a lot of other cool stuff that I wanted, but I need to save money for October. I need book everything tonight too if I can. I already convinced mom that using the card is best because I can pay it all off before the end of next month anyway. I realized that I really still want an Indiana Jones hat. I may have to break down and actually buy one that's wearable on a regular basis. My mom also quashed some woman's attempt to shoplift too, I was all ready to be heroic if it came to that. It was very exciting and then I got bored and paid more attention to the costumes.

Also bought a picture frame with giraffes on it. It even came with a real picture of some teenagers that I'll probably just shove somewhere and keep. I think it's sad to throw away pictures of real people. Even sadder that people would just get rid of something like that without taking the picture out first. Someone must have been pissed or something.

Then walgreens had the Halloween candy out already so I bought some orange marshmallow pumpkins and a candy that was in a Chinese take out box. It's like...gummy noodles and eyeballs or something ridiculous. God, I love Halloween. It's when all the super gross candy comes out that I just can't resist. :|

At any rate, I never got the pants. I did get a few things that I actually needed. Mostly some more deodorant and body spray since it was on sale, I very briefly considered trying some Old Spice just for a change but it was more expensive. Maybe on a time that it actually happens to be on sale I'll try it.

I need to remember to look at drugstores in California too when I go back out there. [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction said that they carried Sunsilk products pretty regularly and we don't even have it in the stores here now. The only thing I can find is shampoo at work and it's all East Indian product and totally not what I'm looking for.

All in all it turned out to be a good day, just kind of going from store to store and hanging out with my mom. :3

dalekpatronus: (ZOIDBERG ✪ I'M A KING I AM)
So today was a day. Busy to the point that it practically flew by, but I was so tired that it almost seemed a little overwhelming.

At one point I had a lady ask me for 'AMAMAMI' beans. It took me a while to figure out just what in the hell she was talking about, but once I finally got her to accept that she might have the wrong name and actually describe them I realized she was asking for EDAMAME.

I also had a lady walk up to my desk and stare at me for a moment before she just threw her arms up in the air and said 'SHOPPING CARTS?!' rather frantically. I really wanted to reply with 'BULLDOZERS?!' because it almost felt like a game, but that might have been pushing it a little.

I need to tell my mom that I'm using the AmEx to prepay for my trip. I'll just have to pay it all off in increments from the next few paychecks. We'll see how that talk goes or how reluctant she seems. Last night the prices were the best they have been since I started checking, so I figure I'd better lock that down ASAP.




dalekpatronus: (BOWIE ✪ SOB)
I don't want to be a noodle master. :c

Other than that, my day turned out a lot better than expected. Jocelyn was surprisingly docile and pretty much...slightly more chipper than normal. I won't complain, it just threw me a little since I expected a really big issue to come up over everything on Friday. 

No work tomorrow, I plan on just enjoying the day with [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction as much as possible before I have to take her to the airport. I'm a little worried that I'm going to end up being very clingy tomorrow, but I guess I'll deal with that when it comes.

dalekpatronus: (Default)
Feeling so much more calm today, which is more than I expected. I really was kind of just feeling like I was in a hole yesterday. Found out that most of the things I was supposed to do today got canceled so I was looking forward to a nice and relaxing kind of day.

In the end we still wound up having to help lift cabinets and stuffu, so my arms are pretty sore and I probably should have taken some Tylenol first thing when we got back. Went to the mall after we moved that stuff and couldn't find anything that I just couldn't live without other than a cinnabon cupcake.

Now just chilling and hoping that tomorrow turns out well. I need to remember to call Cynthia to tell her how I'm doing. Kind of a little concerned about going back to work on Monday because I'm probably going to have to deal with a lot of crap over what happened on Friday. Still, I'm already scoping out places and seeing just who is hiring when I'm just out and about.

We'll just see how it all pans out I guess~ 

dalekpatronus: (Default)
Still ever so amused about seeing that guy picking up a hooker this morning while on the way to work. She really was nasty looking too, but I guess some people just aren't very picky. :| 

On the agenda tonight: go to the drugstore and finish the great hair experiment! *^* The pink in [livejournal.com profile] heartaddiction's hair turned out so much better this time around, so I'm really hoping for great results with the purple that we bought. Though, I think I may go buy more here in a little bit just to make sure that we have plenty to cover all of her hair.

And now I'm off again!

And still trying to remember what I had to tell [livejournal.com profile] cavalcanti earlier today. I swear my memory sometimes is just next to worthless.

dalekpatronus: (POKEMON ✪ ~3~)
Today really was a long day for many reasons, but it got better throughout the afternoon and even better once I got home.

I wonder if it's silly hoping so much for something and I almost worry that I'm pushing too hard, but just the thought that there's a possibility brings a smile to my face. Wishful thinking or not though, I'm really enjoying the feelings that I'm having. It's nice being able to go to bed feeling so content, now if I could just work on the waking up content part it'd be even better. ❤
dalekpatronus: (MULDER ✪ Say huh...?)
Nnnnnngh. Feeling a little disgruntled over work, I'm really kind of getting tired of being the reliable one and having to pick up the slack and do the jobs that everyone else is supposed to be doing.

Oh well, guess I'll get over it. Maybe if I'm lucky this next round of applicants will get through and things will be able to go back to the way that I've begun to consider as being 'normal'.

Phone is fucking up all over the place too. Freezing in the middle of calls and then when I went to check my mail at lunch ALL my bookmarks and internet settings were gone. And I'm not eligible for an upgrade until the end of August.

I was hoping that today was going to be awesome after having that couple of emotionally draining days, but no luck.


A few other things irking me here and there but ultimately there's still plenty for me to look forward to, though. At least I have those to keep me happier.
dalekpatronus: (SAILORMOON ✪FFFFFFF)
Been up a little over an hour and already I've heard about all the things I'm doing wrong. Little things, but it really does get obnoxious.

Now I remember why I choose to sleep most of the time on my days off. I can hope that it gets better at least, the plans for today at least sound fun. We'll see how that pans out though.

I feel like I had a really good dream, but I can't really remember what it was. I woke up feeling really good though, at least there's that to carry me through all of the little jabs about things that I really don't care about. Honestly, it shouldn't matter so much where I hang my sweater, it should only matter that it's not on the floor. :| 

Oh well, oh well~ Make the best of it and just look forward to having some time to myself later. No sense in getting all worked up about something that I really can't change. Now if only my headache would go away I'd be able to focus a little more on the good stuff.

Monday I should have my tax money, that'll be awesome and maybe I could actually start planning for things that I'm really hoping can happen.  There's just the matter of actually having the guts to go through with one or two things, but for now I'll be good just contemplating.

FIRST THINGS FIRST! MEME TIME!

Reply to this post, and I'll tell you one reason why I like you. Then put this in your own journal, and spread the love.


Moving on.

Today was a special day at work, to say the very least. We were swamped and it took me a little while to figure out why, but finally I realised DURHUR HOLIDAY.

Jin got slammed at the ramen bar by 13 customers all at once and ended up having to call me for back up. It was fine, I guess, but I'm not sure why she even tried to take on so many people at once when we're only equipped to handle five orders at a time. No matter, I still got a tip out of it. So yay extra five dollars? 

The rest of the day was paperwork and computer work, there's still so much for me to catch up on before Friday. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, but I know I'll be able to get it done probably ahead of schedule. I was at the front desk for a while tonight too, that wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. A majority of the first hour was spent with one of the cashier's kids, she likes hanging on me out with me and just generally chatting. she decided on a whim that I was both the King and Queen of a country called AWESOMANIA and that she was the princess. It was some kind of special, she even went so far as to write out a constitution for it and everything.

Had a moment where I turned absolutely red and choked on my drink, simply because of someone's awkward wording about a piece of fruit. We carry the Sonya apples now and one of my managers was talking about how much she enjoyed it. I think it would have been a little easier to take if she hadn't left out an important word.

"You know, the Sonya? Very good! Very juicy and delicious!"

A bunch of us got a huge kick out of that, because Kia didn't quite get why I was turning so red and why some of the guys were laughing so hard. Generally a good day, I'm glad for it.

The rain was nice, it added to the rather content mood I've had going for the last few days. It's nice feeling like this, like there's something worth smiling over. I wonder if I'm looking too much into things or being too hopeful, but I think I'll just enjoy it for now.
