update a la vignette [Sunday
August 30th, 2009

I like driving around in the city on Sunday mornings, because about 80% of the population is at church or asleep. It sort of has this apocalyptic vibe; like this is how the world would work if the rapture came and saved all the mormons and all the heathens were left behind. It's kind of nice. More leg room.

Today is Ruth's last day. Well, she's technically moving out tomorrow morning, but I have the day off so for all intents and purposes, today is her last. I will miss her so so so so so much. I've only been on shift for a few hours and I've already cried three times. I have never been so attached to one of my residents, but omg do I love this lady.

Kristen is having a boy, for anyone who follows this yet did not already know this information. I am so excited for her! She's still deciding on names. For about a solid week she had picked out "Jett Richard" until she realized that the translation for that would pretty much be Black Dick so yeah. I still think Oliver.

Bought all the fabric for my giant squid plushie. I'm super excited to get it started, but I have to wait for jess to work out the pattern before anything can happen. It's dark brown for the body and a cool dot patterny type for his underbelly. It looks good, I'll post pictures of it later.

Been trying to get into LOST lately. It's kind of silly and dramatic but I'm a sucker for survival scenerios. Plus they have all the episodes up on netflix instant, so that's convienient. If you want to watch something trippy, see Big Man Japan. (Also available for instant view).

My wisdom tooth is coming in on the bottom left side, and it is one of the most painful things ever. With my insurance from work its still gonna cost me about 900 bucks to get them out, and it definitely needs to happen soon. And here I thought I was going to be able to take some time off for a real vacation :(

Hit the open road
Saw something written in tall clear letters on your face
But I could not break the code.

It's five in the morning, and I can't sleep.
Let's not talk about all the stuff that happened yesterday to induce my insomnia.
I have a score to settle with the mass public. Curiosity and all.
So, take a minute and vote, if you will in the Do You Have This Problem Too? Poll.

#1. I usually buy matching shampoo/conditioner sets. When I was a kid my mom was kind of cheap and would usually only buy the 2 in 1 combo bottles, so when I started working at the tender age of 15 I immediately started buying separated sets. And then I came across a problem. Despite the fact that the bottles are the same size, I always go through conditioner a billion times faster then the shampoo. wtf? I am guessing it has something to do with the way a little dab of shampoo can go a long way, as you can bubble up a whole head of hair (or, at least my thin shitty hair) with a quarter size glob. But with conditioner? I always feel like I've got to work a handful of it in, even though I know a normal sized glop will do the trick. I'm pretty sure I psychologically need to feel my head equally weighted with muck from both bottles otherwise I get a little twitchy and OCD, but in order to get a thick hat of conditioner you need to use an ungodly amount. Thus, I always have to buy two bottles of conditioner (at least!) for every one bottle of shampoo. My own retardation frustrates me. SO PLZ FRIENDS LET ME KNOW

DO YOU HAVE THIS PROBLEM TOO

NO I DO NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM
4(57.1%)
YES I HAVE THIS PROBLEM
3(42.9%)

So sometime during the watching of Feast/Feast II i started thinking about the power of positive thinking, prayer, whatever you want to call it.

Anyone who knows me at all knows I'm a skeptic. I'm sure as hell not religious and I don't really swing with that whole 'secret' crowd. But for shits and giggles, I decided to indulge in some wishful thinking.

I was at work. Trying to catch up on Time Studies, and in order to chart smoothly I needed my Silverado Pen which is like this ubergod pen that Silverado Hospice gives out on marketing tours. Millcreek Home Health gives out green pens that are similar to the Silverado Pen but still not as great.

I don't think I can explain how coveted these pens are at my work. Like seriously. Silverado only comes around once every few months, and if their representative feels so inclined, they might drop a couple of their Pens off at the front desk. If you don't immediately claim It as your own It will be swiped up by the next person that walks past the desk. And god help you if you ever leave your Pen lying around, unattended.

Which incidentally is exactly what I did yesterday, except it wasn't even a Silverado Pen, it was a millcreek green pen. BUT STILL. I had left it in the kitchen. Britney claimed she saw Chuck run off with it, but I figured I could trade him a couple of cigarettes to get it back. Unfortunately, I completely forgot, and now I was left at work with no pen; Chuck of course having the next three days off.

I even ask Ashely, "Hey...we don't have any of those Silverado Pens lying around anywhere, do we?" She actually laughed out loud. "Are you kidding?" she cried. "I wish!"

I was so full of disdain over my situation I decided not to even bother doing the time studies. Steve was out to lunch, after all, and there was no one to tell me not to sit at the front desk with my boots propped up on the computer tower reading the hell out of my book. [Water for Elephants]

Still, I kept thinking about that damn pen, and how long had it been since I even had a real Silverado Pen. So I folded my arms across my chest and (silently) told the universe what was up.

"Universe," I said. "I have been working very hard lately. I was on time to work every day this week, and I even stayed late yesterday. I am taking the initiative to do these time studies. You probably know that only a Silverado Pen or, I suppose, it's lesser cousin milcreek green pen can be used on these charts in order to achieve a satisfactory result. I'm not sure why this is, Universe, but I know that no store sells these pens. And I know that I deserve one of these coveted Pens. I would only use It's power for good! So what's up Universe, send me a pen."

So then like two minutes later (I've gone back to reading my book now) Lisa from Silverado waltzed in. I have not seen this woman for at least eight or nine months. I don't even necessarily remember her name is Lisa (but I do later). The first thing she does is whip out a Silverado Pen from her freaking pocket like it's some damn penny candy.
"Hey Sam! It's so good to see you!" she says. (She even remembers me! A lowly phone slave!) "How have you been? Oh, what are you reading?!" This last part is added because I've just dropped my book, (along with my jaw) as my trembling hand reaches for the Holy Grail of Pens.
"I...I'm good. I'm...I LOVE THESE PENS."
.
.
.
.
She hands me a second effing Pen.
*blacks out*

no but really I don't remember what happened after that, I think I composed myself externally and small talked with her and directed her to someone's office, but HOLY JESUS DAMN how is that for instant universal cosmic props?!?!

Haha, and then Melody tried to snag one of them; she was like "oh let me borrow your pen for a second..." and then she tried to walk away and I chased that bitch down and ripped it from her french tipped nails.

So. Experiment #1 of Operation Make Universe Prove It's Hip Self was an awesome success.
