Well... Michael's sick & now his party's been moved to Friday. I hope you get well soon!!
I went to the eye doctor today and I now need glasses. My vision is 20/30. My left eye's stigmatism is tying to sabotage me. I don't want glasses. I think it'll make my face look bigger.
A while ago my favorite kitty in the whole world disappeared and he never came back. My mom & dad drove 9 hours to pick up some priest that's staying at our house for a day or two. They're also bringing a little female calico kitty. Her priest owner was looking for someone to take her. She's aptly named Tequila.
Current Mood: mixed...

|11:02 am - Stomping grounds.|
I went and saw Stomp the Yard last night w/ Mo, Alex, & Peter. All that fast paced dance moves gave me a bit of a headache.
I'm back in g-town again. Living w/ mom & pop (which I hope isn't for long). I start an 8-5 job on Monday in Dallas. I'm excited/scared/freaked out. I officially feel like I'm getting old.
I need a car. Mom wants hers back.
I still have miscellaneous things left in Denton (ie tv, computer, bed...) so I may make a trip out there next weekend w/ a truck if anyone wants to get together for a last Denton fling.
What's happening for Michael's B-day? Yes. I remembered. Yes. I know no one expected that from me.
Current Mood: indescribable

Ugh. I've been at work since 11am and I'm still here. I get off at 10pm but waiting for that hour to arrive is killing me...
Those mock spicy chicken patties are awesome. I wish I had an endless supply.
I might have a job taking pictures of bottles and tweaking w/ them in photoshop. It's with this company Fusion Packaging. It's a hole in the wall joint a little past Harry Hines... near those shading gentlemen's clubs... Hopefully I'll know tomorrow if I get the job.
I wish I could cut hair. I think it would be a kickass skill.
I love my green tea breaks w/ a little sugar in the raw. It keeps me going.
