Now I totally want gallo pinto. Yummmmmmmy.
There is a jerk guy who interviewed me for a job and said he'd get back to me on Monday or Tuesday (this week) and here it is late Tuesday and he hasn't emailed me yet! I am annoyed. I'm 85% sure I didn't get the job, but still. Have come decency, man!
I had a whole list of stuff that I was going to say and it's all completely gone now. I am re-annoyed. Puh.
There are a lot of things I can cope with, but not having closed quotes or parentheses is not among them.
My project tonight is to clean my room. Which means, of course, that I am updating. :)
I bought some DVDs, which is generally not my style. But I figure I can pay $5 to rent a movie or $10 to buy it. This does not work for everything, but it works for Footloose which is so glorious in its hilarity yet goodness, and About a Boy, which I adore despite the fact that there's a child in it.
For those of you who have read the book, the movie Bridget Jones: the Edge of Reason is out and they put the interview on the DVD!! Eee!
For reasons not worth explaining, I just found a stack (literally, an enormous stack) of photos that I haven't seen in years. There are a few random photos from elementary school, a couple rolls from middle school, and about 916 rolls from high school. It is generally hilarious and enjoyable. Partly because, hey, reminiscing, but also because I keep finding pictures of people whose name I don't know but I recall having brief crushes on. My favorite is from girl scout camp when I was maybe 8 and there was this counselor who I had a gigantic crush on, but I never knew if the counselor was a boy or a girl. Someone cleverly pointed out years later that if said individual was at girl scout camp, it was probably a girl. I continued flipping through the pictures and realized that I had crushes on just about everyone at girl scout camp. Ha.
April is exciting to me this year. Anyone have any ideas about how to have a whizbang birthday? Since mine sucked last year. :) Also I can't believe it's not "taxtime" yet because I did mine a month and a half ago. Also I'm going to a writers conference (for free!) which is sillily exciting and also I'm finding a summer job. Right now it's exciting ore than stressful but I think that's because I'm in denial. Anyway, I think April will be much better than March because March was soooooo busy and painful and obnoxious and then I went to New York which was GREAT! but it wasn't very much balance to the month. Meanwhile in April, work will be much smoother and there will be little exciting things scattered throughout. Yay!
New York was fantastic and I had a variety of pleasing and important experiences. I accidentally wrote a 6 page letter to someone while I was there, so if you get one soon, it was to you! Aren't you excited? It was actually pathetic because I was staying in Chelsea and my last afternoon I said "I HAVE to go to a coffeeshop!" and one was closed forever and another had a line out the door and zero seating (and, coincedentally, no women inside), so, despite my good intentions, I wound up at Starbucks. It was really depressing.
Well, for stupid reasons I just never got around to selling my old car. But I put up an ad on craigslist and got 18 responses in 12 hours. That is crazy. But also good news. One of them was this:
I SAW YOUR ADVERT VIA THE INTERNET I AM INTERESTED IN BUYING YOUR (1986 Honda Accord) I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THE SELLING PRICE AND THE CONSTANT CONDITION OF IT,I WOULD LIKE YOU NOT TO WORRY ABOUT SHIPING BECAUSE I HAVE MY OWN SHIPPING COMPANY WHO WILL COME FOR THE PICKUP.MOST IMPORTANT,I WILL NEED YOUR FULL NAME AND ADDRESS IN WHICH THE CHECK FOR THE PAYMENT WILL BE SEND WITHOUT ANY DELAY......
which is really funny to me. :) I especially like the part about the constant condition.
I got my tax refunds today. Both of them!! So exciting.
It is Spring fucking Break!!! I have badly needed this. I'm excited to go to New York (Tuesday!) but am mreover excited jsut to have the time off. Also, I have lots of plans an landmarks in April and May so it seems like those months will go by faster. I got two heavyduty applications in this week for summer jobs, so here's crossing my fingers for not working at Target. Although it is nice to know there's a job I could theoretically go back to without too much hassle. Because it would be bad to be homeless. Ick.
I've been working out and I'm all muscly and good-feely! My favorite new muscles are my calves and my spine muscles. :) How great. Except I wish there were more yoga in my world. I'm starting to get this little yoga-instuctor fantasy despite the fact I've probably done yoga less than 30 times in my life. Ha.
And now I'm almost out of battery :)
Oh, and I'm re-hooked on America's Next Top Model.
