I am back in Chicagoland now - got in late last night. I am using my mom's computer and only have AIM, so if you want to talk to me for the time being, that's where I can be found.

Today was the interview. It was okay I guess. I was one of the first people they're interviewing, so I think the chances I'll get offered the job are slim to none.

I am very unhappy at the moment. A few years ago, I took out my right knee in what has become known as the Great Kareoke Incident. I had to have a brace on it and couldn't walk for a month. Because I didn't have medical insurance, I never had an MRI or anything more serious done than an X-ray. When I did have medical coverage again, I asked my doctor about looking into it further, but he said it wasn't necessary. Fast forward 4 years later to now.

My knee is hurting. A lot. It feels like it doesn't want to hold me when I stand and walk. It has been bothering me on and off for the past couple of days - I don't know if it's because of all the driving I've been doing or what. It feels like it's swollen and stiff. I am incredibly afraid. If it goes out completely...I'm just screwed. I want to cry. I'm that scared. It's bad enough that I can barely walk on a normal day - at least I can still do the majority of the things I need to do. If my knee gives out, I really don't know how I'll be able to do anything.

I don't think I've even come close to accurately explaining how bad I feel right now. I hate feeling like this.

Briefly before collapsing

I want it to be known that the ONLY reason I am awake right now is that I just started a load of laundry. I am SO exhausted and in pain I cannot tell you. But for all that, yesterday was far too much fun. I wish I had time to go into detail, but considering I'm practically asleep, I can only give you a few tidbits at the end, and they will make no sense. Perhaps by the time I get home, either Nancy or Alex will take pity on y'all and explain further. If not, you just get to wait til I get back. The car is almost completely packed - I only have little bits that still need to go in. It IS packed to the brim because my cousin gave me so much clothing.

So thanks again to Alex for driving me there and back and not smacking me for being stupid, to Nancy for letting me share her room only in exchange for cookies and not being annoyed by my drunkeness, and to Atalanta for providing the booze and the doughnuts.

And now, a few quotes:

"And what do you know about the prostate?"

"Here sweetie - go fuck your bear."


"*bang bang bang* Bet you can't fucking sleep! We couldn't either!"

and last, but far from least:

"Hashbrowns or gritts?"

See y'all in a few days. Try to play nicely 'til then - please?

First of all, thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday or gave me a pressie or is working on one. You are all so wonderful, and a definite part of why this has been the best birthday I've had in a long time. *big group puppypile-type hug*

So, what did I do today? I got my hair done as my present from my aunt and uncle! And now it is back to being the length I want, annnnnnnd...I am a Weasley redhead!!! It's really a bit weird. I pass a mirror and am like, "HUH?! Who was THAT? Oh, it's me..." O_O This will take some getting used to, let me tell you! But I really like it. Hopefully someone will have a camera in Austin and will take pics. Pics were taken tonight, but I don't have access to them yet and am not sure when I will. But yes, you will see. I am very happy, as this was the one thing I really wanted. It only happened because I mentioned I needed to get a haircut because of the interview next week! And then my aunt said, do you want color too? And I was like PLEASE!?! Because the last color I put on was waaaaay too dark and purpley. So now, it is really light and coppery and natural looking and I just need to get used to it. But I am happy. And babbling.

So, my cousin made a nice dinner (black pepper pork chops, broccoli, spagetti squash casserole, yum!) and she made me a red velvet cake, which is one of my absolute favorites, because it's my favorite color, that shade of red. I like eating cool colored stuff, as long as it isn't too outrageous, like that blue margarine they have in the grocery stores now? No thank you!!! But I digress.

So then my mom called, and I was happy she remembered it was my birthday. She professed as to seeing as how she had BEEN there, she of course remembered. Hehe. My gifts from my parents were my Reeboks and sandals that they got me when I was home last, which I definitely am putting to good use.

Then I opened my presents. I got $20 from my other cousin (he said he hoped it fit, hahaha, he's such a comedian!), and then....a zillion Harry Potter things! Dennis (friend of the family who built my computer) gave me a Gringotts goblin figure. Then my cousin had been collecting stuff for months, apparently...I'll try to list it all:

Harry Potter pillow, his hair flips up to reveal his scar
Hagrid figure
Hagrid and Harry in Gringotts cart sculpted box
Harry catching the snitch sculpted box
HP pencils
HP pens
HP gluesticks
HP pads of paper
HP picture frame
HP magnetic mirror
HP chocolate lollipop making kit
HP candy kit
HP spinning sucker

There may be more, but I can't remember it. I had more things to open than I knew what to do with! But it was very cool.

My brother apparently forgot. Oh well. My sister gave me my gift - pink grapefruit tea bags - when she visited at the end of July.

Also, my problem with not being able to see animated things has been fixed!!!!! It was a stupid spyware problem. Damn things, I hate them so. But it has been fixed and so cannot ruin my birthday!!!!

And thus ends my extremely rambling incoherent birthday post. I luuurve you all. :D

I HAVE AN INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


*bounces around like a tigger on speed*

Okay, I think I'm calm now. Wait, nope!

*bounces more*

Okay, I think that's it. :D :D :D

It's for a company in Chicago, and it's next Wednesday. Which means I'm leaving a few days earlier than I'd planned, but only a couple. I need to leave Monday morning, and will get back Tuesday. So I can now go to Austin this weekend and REALLY celebrate, not just being with cool people and my birthday, but also that I will hopefully HAVE A JOB very SOON!!!

Okay, time to go bounce some more. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh look - a moderately interesting entry

I ran around doing errands today. Went to the bank with my latest unemployment check (hooboy, I'm rich now! *snort*), FINALLY got the mess with the free insulin straightened out and picked that up, went to the bookstore and found the book I'd needed so I could read the books in order, went to the sex shop (and no, I'm not telling what I got), went to the post office, and then picked up milk.

In other exciting news, I am planning to go to the mini-HP meet in Austin this weekend. I will drive there and back with kissaki, who will hopefully get some sleep before then and not torture me with strange music the whole trip, and then share a room with the incredibly generous nmalfoy, who wants only cookies in return. So I am making her chocolate chip/peanut butter chip cookies on Friday to bring with me. If you are going to be there and you want cookies, you will have to ask her nicely. :) I am bringing HP Trivia and we will have to do other silly HP things. Just don't make me walk anywhere. *bounces*

Just for the heck of it, I decided to check my reviews on FFnet. I rarely do this because I don't get many, which, considering the number of hits on my website, is rather surprising. I think I'm going to code my fics and put them up on my site soon. But now, it's time for Reviews I Either Liked or Found Amusing!

First, for Visibility, Guntar said:
Dumbledore’s parting comments to them, however, were more than Harry really wanted to know about his headmaster’s private life. “Of course,” and Harry thought he saw a look of wistful longing in older man’s eyes, “I can’t see the bother of all this when there are nice, warm socks.”

That is the funniest thing I have ever read. It alone made the story awesome.

Why, thank you. I love that myself. For some reason, I seem to be the only one who thinks that Dumbledore/Socks is a legitimate pairing. ;) However, I do not intend to write it!!

For My Favorite Mistake, Autumn Eve said:
You have one hell of a talent.

That's one of the best compliments I've ever gotten, even if I'm not sure I believe it. Thank you.

For Necrocommunion, Anakah said:
Interesting. I've never seen this done and I must say... It's not bad. In a twisted way I understood. Good story.

and Kronic said of the same:
Very well written, but freaky.

I have to admit, it still floors me that a) in terms of reviews, this is apparently one of my most-read stories, and b) most people are complimentary. When Libertine first approached me to write this, we both expected to get a lot of flames over it, and yes, we got a few. But the majority of reviews ARE positive. Go fig.

For Sex in the Village, Phorc said:
This is nearly the funniest thing I've ever read. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy still number one, sorry...) I was crying after I found out Harry was gay. Laughing/crying, that is. In any case, keep writing, I'm curious to see how it all will turn out. And if you don't mind, can we get Cho in here somewhere...?

Being second to Hitchhiker's Guide is probably a LOT more than I deserve. I am humbled.

Also for SitV, Autumn Eve (from above) reviews again:
Aside from your writing, which I will comment on later, I just want you to know, it's "sex AND the city" not "sex IN the city," lol I watch it religiously.

Well, yes. I know that. I watch it too, otherwise, I don't think I could write this story. It's Sex IN the Village on purpose. Really it is. But, thanks? O_o

I think that's enough for now. See what happens when I don't check reviews for months? There actually ARE some!

The second book written and the third chronologically, you're the story of a Narnia hundreds of years after the last visit, populated by mythological creatures struggling to overthrow a king determined to wipe them out. Susan's Horn brings help when it's most needed ...

Find out which Chronicles of Narnia book you are.

Singing to the tune in my head...I hate people, I hate people...

Everything is pissing me off lately.

The pharmacy is giving me crap about giving me my free insulin. The clerk was downright rude when I went in to ask about it, and refused to call the company, saying I had to call. Well, I did, but no, THEY have to call. So I called the pharmacy and spoke to someone else, who I am hoping actually did call. This shouldn't be so damned hard.

Talked to my mom today and my brother is still planning to move home at basically the same time I am. He still has a job, but he was bitching about ME coming back home, taking the room he wanted, and having to put up with me. Now, my parents do not really want him to move back. I do not understand why he is moving back if he still has a job. I wouldn't have left having my own place if I'd had any other choice. My brother is a spoiled little brat who always left the house a huge mess and never cleaned up after himself. My parents are laying down all sorts of rules for him if he is coming back. So far, there are no rules for me. I imagine there will be some (mostly to do with me not staying out til all hours and coming home and waking them up), but they know that I will help cook and clean and generally be responsible.

I am generally annoyed with several people. You most likely know who you are.

All I really want for my birthday is to be able to get my hair professionally cut and colored, but I don't think that's going to happen. And my bangs are so long I can't see.
