Happy Halloween To Me!!!

Do you like my new car? This picture is the identical version of the car that I bought today!!

It took 4 hours and 3 test drives (3 different models) and running out of gas once, but this is the car. Yes only I would run out of gas during a test drive.

I'm picking it up on Monday! I can't wait.

Dark Cloud GO AWAY

This has not been a good week. But, I will skip the details of the early part of the week and fast forward to today.

Today I was supposed to drop my car off at the dealership and get my new exhaust put on. However, I was in the shower and I started hearing the toilet bubbling. I looked out of the shower and saw bubbles, my first thought was, "This can't be good." Next thing I know weird things are shooting out of the tub, I look down and realize I'm in a foot of water. I jump out of the shower. I dry off.

I run upstairs and throw on some clothes. I look in the upstairs toilet and see that there is no water. Hmm that's odd. I go downstairs and see that there is no water in the downstairs toilet. Hmm, odd. There is a foot and a half of water in the tub though. Ok.

I decide at this point to call a plumber, however, before I can do that, I hear some odd noises. I go into the downstairs bathroom and the toilet is now overflowing!! WTF??? I shut the water valve off, but this does nothing. I try the plunger, this too does nothing. Suddenly the water is gone. Wait, it gets better. I go upstairs, same thing, the toilet is now overflowing and then suddenly it's gone. So I think to myself, do I need an exorcist or a plumber? I go with plumber and call RotoRooter.

I also call my boss because she is supposed to pick me up at the car dealership on her way into work. I leave her a frantic message. By the way, it's only 7 a.m.

So I call RotoRooter and they tell me that someone will be out by noon or before if they can. Ok, great. I finish throwing some clothes on and yep you guessed it, I had to pee. Great. I jump in the car, which thankfully started, however, the winshields are all frozen. So I'm doing the dance in the car while I wait for it to thaw. I finally get to the Mobil station and the bathrooms are disgusting. I decide I can't wait any longer. I get home and RotoRooter calls and says someone will be here around 10 a.m.

Around 9:15 a.m. I have to go to the bathroom again. This time I go to McDonald's. The bathroom was so nice and clean I didn't want to leave. I get home and the RotoRooter guy is sitting outside my driveway looking for my house. I pull up and tell him where to find me, he follows me home. I was ready to kiss him. Oh and I should mention that both of these bathrooms that I drove to, where about 15 minutes away. Great.

So the repair costs are about $400 and may take several hours or all day and of course I have to be here and I still have no functioning plumbing.

I called my boss and let her know and I have decided to make the most of my situation and I'm going to finish up my midterm which is due on Saturday. Oh and I also decided to post on my blog. I mean, I'm not going anywhere for awhile anyway.

Hopefully nothing else will go wrong today or tomorrow for that matter. Oh yeah and the plumber just told me that I could have a collapsed pipe somewhere. Oh and when he was discussing what could be wrong he used the phrase "feminine hygiene products." It's ok, you can laugh, I am.

Someone sent me this picture as part of an email with many other pictures, but I thought that this was hysterical and definitely blog worthy since I'm always talking about how guys stare at my chest. Maybe it's not their fault?

Now it's your turn, share your favorite t-shirt slogans!

WHAT?? Speak Up!!

I had the freakiest dream last night. I woke up at 3 a.m. this morning after having a horrible nightmare. I dreamt that someone had broken into my house and when I went halfway down the stairs I could see him walk outside. I ran downstairs and locked the door behind him then took my little dog and called 911 from inside the closet.

I woke up in a sweat and scared stiff. I really thought that someone was in the house. So I laid in my bed scared to death to move, then I remembered that I have a doberman and a sheltie and if someone was in the house both dogs would have been going crazy.

So I got a home security system. I am feeling a litle bit safer. However, I accidentally set off the alarm and at 110 decibals I think I lost some of the hearing in one of my ears. Damn that was loud.

Anyway, I've lived in my house for 2 years and have never been scared which is why I can't believe I was so terrified last night.

I think that my fear may be as a result of all of the crazy things that have been happening lately. The two devasting hurricanes, the flooding, the 9 straight days of rain. I don't know what's going on with the world, but I'm not feeling very secure in this world right now.

Am I the only one feeling like this?

It's Raining It's Pouring

It has finally stopped raining here. I think. It's been raining for 9 consecutive days. I was getting ready to build an ark. Cleavage's Ark. Who wants a ride?

I think when it rains it pours, well in my life anyway. I haven't posted in awhile because I was waiting for something worthwhile to post about. Unfortunately, I didn't come up with anything and I've been busy with work and school and stuff. It's the stuff that gets you every time.

I took my car into the shop the other day for an oil change that ended up costing me $600. My vehicle needed a great deal of repairs. So I said, whatever, better to pay the money and have the car fixed then to break down. One day later, the car broke down at the exit ramp and I walked home about 2 miles in the pouring rain. It was a character building experience. NOT. The car is still in the shop and will not be ready until Tuesday. Oh well.

I didn't get the job that I interviewed for about 2 months ago. They just told me after stringing me along for weeks. They originally told me that they were going to make their decision within one week. Oh well, I guess I wasn't meant for that job. I'll just keep looking.

Nowadays, every time something goes wrong I am trying to see a positive or put a positive spin on things.

Other than these things, there isn't much else going on with me. I have no dating life, not for lack of trying. Some whacko IM'd me the other day and told me that sometimes his fingers get sticky, he was some 40 year old in Texas with a screen name that included the word "gent" in it. I hated to break it to him, but he was no gentleman. I spent some time messing with him only to have him end up on my block list. I'm getting sick and tired of the pigs, losers, jerks and pervs that contact me. Although, I do have some fun messing with them.

So, the good news is that I'm still trying and I'm relatively happy. I think that a boyfriend would be a nice addition to my life and I'm sure that I will find that special someone.

He's Baaacckkkk

So, Mr. NotSoWonderful does not intend to give up on me. He keeps emailing me with the picture of our life together. I don't know, I'm just not feeling it.

Anyway, enough of him, I haven't even met him and he's already making me nuts.

This post will be pretty random since it's the end of the week and I am too tired and too overwhelmed to be coherent.

If you haven't seen Beauty Shop, I highly recommend it. It was very good and very funny. Also, if you haven't seen Crash, YOU MUST SEE IT!!!

Also, I bought one of those Total Gyms and I must say it's awesome. I love it and man can I feel the burn!!!

So what's new with you all?
