Um...


You are Hagrid. You're an outcast with a heart of gold. Despite your own problems, you always find time to help those in need.




You are Chuck Norris. You fight for truth and justice with a custom truck and a never-ending supply of roundhouse kicks to the face! At the peak of your career you had your own cartoon, but what you'll be remembered for is a never ending supply of internet one-liners.





Your major should be Computer Science. You like nothing more than spending long nights with friends in the computer lab... which is a good thing since that's exactly how you'll spend the next couple years.






So... maybe it's just me, but these Facebook quizzes are kind of crap.


Memorial Day is kind of slow at work...

It's a tie!


You are part Cinderella. You are hard-working and never complain, however, your trust is sometimes misplaced and people sometimes take advantage of you. Still, you are beautiful inside and out, and one day you will realize it and find true love.



You are part Pocahontas. You defy convention and sometimes do what is considered taboo. Unfortunately, others do not always appreciate your differences, so it's good that you are so strong-willed. You are loyal and you believe in fate. Your true love will find you one day.

Well, I took this once and thought for sure Cinderella/Pocahontas wasn't the best answer for me. So I took it again and got the same answer--meaning, of course, that it must be true. Who knew?

Stuff I Want!

Reasons for this post:
1. I haven't posted on my blog in a long time and I might as well.
2. I usually don't have a list of things that I want just in the back of my mind, but there are actually so many things I do want right now and I haven't had any money lately to buy them as I discover them. So I was thinking I'll keep track of them so I can make sure I get them once I do have money again. (Also a certain birthday is coming up so if anyone wants ideas... :P)

Talk to the Hand: the Utter Bloody Rudeness of the World Today, or Six Good Reasons to Stay Home and Bolt the Door, by Lynne Truss (hardcover)
The Bell Jar, by Sylvia Plath (the amazing beautiful Borders version)
Love is a Many Trousered Thing, by Louise Rennison (not out til July, which means paperback is even farther away. very sad.)
Settlers of Catan
Ticket to Ride
The Judges
, by Elie Wiesel
The Lost, by Daniel Mendelsohn
Gilmore Girls, any season except 3 which I already have
the Office, seasons 1 and 3 when it's out

...to be continued, I'm sure.

i'm feeling lame and crappy tonight and i don't even know what for. i can't even put any of it into words. i felt lame when mike came over and was in a weird mood. i hate it when he hardly talks and just sits there and then he tells me there's nothing wrong. um... okay. i'm not retarded. jennie kept asking if he was okay and all i could tell her was that he said he was fine. and i felt like i couldn't keep asking him about it because i've TOLD him that i hate it when he tells me he's fine and then later i find out he's not. he does it all the time.
ugh. i can't write any more because i don't know what to write. i'm going to bed.

Extensive Ramblings

Why do I not feel like going to sleep? It's after 1 am and I should be tired.
Lindsey's going to England in two days and I'm very jealous, but also happy for her. Lindsey, will you be able to read my blog while you're there? Not that I post very often anyway, but I think you're the only person who DOES read it besides Megan.
I'm starting a new job tomorrow at First Line Security. I'll be doing data entry and it sounds like a really easy, laidback job that pays well, which is basically all I need. I'm going to try doing the 7 am to 3 shift, because 1) it will prepare me for a full year of 8:00 classes coming up, 2) Mike works from 6 to 2 so this gives us almost the same hours which means we can still spend time together and 3) I think I'll really like getting out that early in the afternoon. Also I think the time goes faster when you work early in the morning. And in any case, it'll be healthy for me to go to bed earlier.
I went to the library today with Mike, and it was really fun because I went to the children's section and saw all these books I used to read that I want to read again. I checked out a Babysitters Club book, a Trixie Belden book, one of the Wayside Stories books, Ender's Game, and some crazy sci-fi book that Mike wants me to read called A Stainless Steel Rat is Born. Beats me but I might as well. I had to get my library card renewed because I hadn't been in so long, but I'm really glad I went back. I forget how much I love libraries. Also they help me with my addiction to buying books-- if I can check them out at the library then I don't buy them so fast. They're having a basement sale this Saturday and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to go. I don't know if anything there will be any good, but I feel like I should check it out.
One of my acrylic nails just popped right off today, so I had to soak the rest of them off. It was not my favorite activity. My hands still have dried gluey crap all over them, but I washed my hands three times and got tired of it so I just hope it all comes off tomorrow when I shower. Soaking those nails off is SO BORING. Seriously. Even with something else to entertain me at the same time. I am not a patient person. I wanted to get them done again, but now I'm not sure, because 1) of the pain of getting them off and 2) I like being able to type again! But the girl who did mine did them much longer than I like them, so maybe if I just went back and told Sadie I want them shorter... that might be less obnoxious. Like Megan said, though, they make me feel handicapped. But also pretty, which is why I want them again.
I have a sudden craving for Coldstone coffee-flavored ice cream. I don't know where that thought came from but it is so yummy.
I'm glad that I get to see people I haven't seen in a really long time this summer, and also that when we move to Belmont there are going to be lots of people around that we used to be friends with and haven't talked to in forever, such as Rob Toft and Nate Kartchner, both of whom I talked to online today. I forget how much Nate and I can talk, but I'm pretty sure we talked for like an hour and a half or maybe two. South of campus may not be my favorite, but it definitely has its benefits. I'm looking forward to it for so many reasons.
Mike's sister Liz works at the library. I've always wanted to work there. It's such a pretty building! And I have always loved libraries and wanted to work in one. I'm glad I'm getting this security job though, because I bet the library doesn't pay very well and I saw a suspicious-looking shirt hanging in the room that Liz uses at their parents' house. It had the library logo on it and Mike says he doesn't think she has to wear it at work but the fact that she HAS it is suspicious enough for me because the shirt is absolutely hideous.
I haven't been to Wienerschnitzel in a while. Mike introduced me to that place and I love it a lot. I've decided that I like hot dogs. Yum yum.
I have a fun project to work on now-- I'm making mix CDs for everyone in my family before I go home at the end of the month. Megan gave me the idea when she told me that she made a CD for her mom for Mothers' Day. The idea of making a CD for my mom had never occurred to me, probably because she's so crazy picky about the music she listens to, but I decided I wanted to do it, and then I thought why not do it for my whole family? So I'm having a lot of fun creating playlists for everyone. I think I might have to do two CDs per person, though, or at least for a couple people because there are just so many songs I want to give them. I'm really enjoying my project though, and I'm glad I have a couple weeks to work on it.
Speaking of going home, I am SO excited to go home and see my family, and to have them meet Mike and just be able to spend time at home. It's going to be really great. I wish I was going to stay a little longer than a week, mostly because there are going to be so many people at my house that I won't be able to have the attention that I usually get. Mike will be there, my Israeli grandparents will be there, my dad's mom might be there, Daniel will be graduating, Dafni and I will be going wedding dress shopping with Talia, who will be making wedding plans while we're there, Miki and Ed are moving to Boston soon and they'll be there, Dafni will be coming back from South Carolina, the boys will be leaving for High Adventure or Boy Scout camp or something or other, Daniel will be getting ready to leave for Freshman Academy in Idaho... lots going on and I'm afraid it'll be a little TOO much of a madhouse. I'm sure it'll be fine though, and I'll be going home in September for Talia's wedding anyway, so it'll be okay.
And speaking of Talia's wedding, that is really weird. She called last week to tell me that she was getting married at the end of the summer (September 1 is what they're planning right now). It's pretty weird helping to plan a non-LDS wedding, I've never done that before. And it's also a little weird because Kristofer is a nice guy and all, but he's not a member and they've broken up so many times that I'm not sure why they think getting married is a good idea. But who knows, maybe things will work out perfectly for them. That'd be nice, because I loooove Alex. We all love Alex, actually. She already calls my parents "saba" and "safta," which is grandpa and grandma in Hebrew. Good times.
Hmm. In other news, Mike and I have officially been together six months as of yesterday. That's pretty exciting to me, especially because I completely forgot about it until last night instead of counting down the days for three weeks in advance. I had been looking forward to it, of course, but I hadn't thought about it for at least a week before the anniversary, so it was a pleasant surprise to me. He forgot too, so all we did was our new one-Sunday-night-a-month tradition of going to Denny's at midnight. We first did it one night after we'd had a big fight and then made up. It was like 1 in the morning and Mike asked if I wanted to go get food, so we did and we liked it so we've decided to do it once a month or something. It's really cute.
Well... I think I've been rambling for a really long time now and I'm getting tired so it's time to go to bed. I was going to do a Team Estrogen/Road Trip to Phoenix post, but my roommates have already done theirs and mine would basically be the same, so instead I think I'll post about the experience that I had with my family while I was down there. Not tonight though. I'm done with typing for tonight. That is all.

Poor, Neglected Blog

Do you like how sometimes I post on my blog three times in one day, and then sometimes I go for an entire two weeks without even looking at it? I sure do.
