Singing in the rain

So over the last few days I've noticed a weird behavior being exhibited by those around me. Singing. Just folks breaking out in song. Maybe its because its spring. I don't know, but I feel like I'm trapped in High School Musical the Columbus edition. And- none of these people have been GOOD. None of them!

I was annoyed by "Boo" the love ballad belting Bob Evan's waitress. Petrified by "Princess pop" who found it wholly appropriate to potty and let loose her vocal prowess. And would have loved to bitch slap "Hallelujah Hannah" who felt the need to summon the father,son,and holy ghost to the on the job training I was working! Hello! This cubicle is crowded enough! And this was all in the last two days!

Now, I like music and I love to sing. In fact, I'm a Grammy winning rock star (in my car and in my dreams). I just ask that if you feel the need to serenade me......please be able to carry a tune!

you spin me right round

It's been quite a while since my last post. i've been wanting to blog, but i can't really blog about what's going on in my life. and that frustrates me....

i've been having some issues at work. butting heads with the owners. it's been stressing me out-it's been making me physically ill(digestive issues, headaches, mystery rashes that i scratch at til they bleed...) and mentally drained. that's all i will say....for now...let's just say it's NOT good

i finally finished up my quarter at school. last weekend was quite a busy one. i was in akron all day saturday to co-present a workshop for interpreters. it was my very first time standing in front of a group of my peers to attempt to teach and share knowledge....i was scared to death!!!!! but, i had a very knowledgeable and supportive co-presenter, and all went very well. the feedback was very positive and i think that that experience has turned something on in my brain. i want to do it again!

then on sunday i had three final exams to take care i can breathe and take a week and a half off from school. if all goes well i should graduate in june with my BS in Education with a focus on Interpreting.

good thing that school finished when it did. now work has gone all to hell and it is literally sucking all the energy and focus out of me. it's an icky situation to say the least and i'm not sure how to resolve the whole matter. i've been presented with an option, but am not sure yet if said option will work out for justin. speaking of justin---happy birthday!

well, a catch up blog of sorts i suppose. i feel like everything in my world is changing and the "not knowing" of the whole thing is killing me. i like to control the things that happen in my life as much as possible and feel quite upset and stressed when i don't. so i find myself pounding down the coffee, sleeping like shit, and going through the motions of life frantically. i'm more scatterbrained than usual(i forgot to pay the electric bill yet again-causing yet another threat of disconnection) and i just feel run over, run down, and like i'm getting the run around.

so i got to thinking about karma today and i decided to run through a few things that have happened to me in the past week or so. ways i've tempted karma and ways she's handed it to me. now these incidents are not directly related but i've chosen to lay it out this way anyhow. deal with it

my crime: i brought up the fact that a work out buddy hadn't shaved her armpits in a long time (she's building up the growth for a waxing) in front of someone else and i think it embarrassed her. this wasn't my intention, but shame on me

punishment: i damn near ripped my ear of with a hairbrush this's still throbbing...

crime: i not only gave a complete stranger my best "mom face" when he tried to run me down like a wild man with his child's stroller at the mall, but i called him and asshole out loud with the child present

punishment: i almost busted my face open on my dresser....this is because i was half asleep and making a vain attempt to put my underwear on...guess my coordination skills are lacking, especially before coffee

crime: i guffawed loudly and without abandon at a big woman wearing black sequined tights and hooker boots when she walked into a store. i was 2 seconds from pointing unabashedly....( most of you may be familiar with the great line from steel magnolias, "it looks like two pigs fighting under a blanket", well, this chick looked like she had two burlap bags filled with gravel under her tights)

punishment: while washing my hair i got shampoo in my eye. this resulted in a wild herky jerky dance followed by my naked self slipping and taking down the entire shower curtain, pole and all (thank goodness justin was out of town, though had i really injured myself you'd all be reading about the woman who slipped and fell and broke her neck and was subsequently eaten by her ginormous cats)

side note-if any of you are familiar with my old myspace blogs, you may remember that i have this nasty little habit of getting hazardous shit into my eyes-shit like hair dye and liquid eyeliner (i should re-post those experiences here) both of these events were way more painful than the time i accidentally super glued my entire mouth shut, though not nearly as embarrassing..

crime: (this one is ongoing) i like to quietly fart in public places and then blame something (not me) for the wicked stench...i did it recently at a bar and the gym..."jeesuus the plumbing here you smell that????"

punishment: i realised that thanks to this nasty habit my car i'm nice enough to hold it in until i get to my car sometimes...i gotta stop doing this! not like i'll ever get a decent trade in on the car but....c'mon ( note to self, must buy febreeze)

crime: just in general i make fun of everyone, like the woman who wore shorts so short to work out at the gym that i thought she left the locker room without her pants....i haven't seen that many dimples since i last had cottage cheese

punishment: i washed my favorite fleece jacket only to find when i went to pull it on that it looks like it was washed and dried with a poodle....

side note 1- i'd never ever harm a pet, but just sometimes i could see why someone would do this to a poodle when i'm home in the valley and have to listen to my mom's yappy little bitch (the dog that was originally mine and that i left there when i moved)

side note 2- one of my all time favorite stories was when in high school a good friend's cat was accidentally killed in the family's dryer...i know, i know..see what i mean about karma????
