NeRdIsM-->I can't feel my hands!

You know you're a nerd when you clench your fists into your body while you sleep and when the alarm goes off to rip you from your pleasant dreams at an ungodly time in the morning you can't turn it off because your hands are asleep and you no longer control their movements!

How's that for a run on sentence?!!

NeRdIsM: little green man

You know you're a nerd when a friend says they got a new toyota and you think they bought a little green action figure, from a certain well known movie.

Off to Work

Too much work, not enough fun. run run run. So much coffee to fill my tummy... makes my brain go bizerko! Hopefully I can hold out for the summer. With all of my new experiences and schedules and all that jazz I'm learning to appreciate the little moments more and not give a crap about that little piddly drama crap that people pull out of their tukuses! Ugh!

NeRdIsM for the day:
You know you're a nerd if you walk around all day at work with your shirt buttoned up uneven AND your underwear on inside out.

NeRdIsM-->Star Warts

You know you're a nerd when you buy the "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" book and use your movie stub as a bookmark.

NeRdIsM-->U.P. Daley

You know you're a nerd when you try to set your "natural body alarm clock" by drinking a giant glass of water before you go to bed so your body will naturally wake up from having to urinate, but instead you wake up at 4:30 in the morning 'cuz you pissed the bed! Huge BACKFIRE!

NeRdIsM-->brown bananas

You know you're a nerd if you weigh yourself before you take a dookie and then weigh yourself again afterwards to see how much your poop weighed.

Brewed Awakenings

This is my first week working the BIG hours. My posts are going to be a bit sporadic and rambly sounding. My mind is scattered because I work about 50 hours a week now. Love SUMMERS! I making extra dough so I can buy a new car! I can't wait to get one. I'm totally pumped about cutting down hours at the TV station job. It's been wearing on me for a while! Same people, same B.S. It gets old. There's a lot of negative energy and bad attitudes there. I hate that! I just want to be happy! I like my other job better. Plus, I get tips and live musicians play sometimes. It's just a friendlier environment and upper managment gets their hands dirty and treats me like a human and an equal!

I'm really pumped for this weekend! I'm going home to Osceola Wisconsin! I get to catch up with old buds and hot rod around in my mom's new wheels! My sis has a new car too! Wow, ton's of hot rodding. My big bro is playing guitar in a concert thingy. Should be fun. Hope the weather's fab.

I need to go drain my main vain (can girls say that?)

A Million Hours, a million hours

Thus marks my first day at the new job. Whew! What a day! I've been quite the working diva this week, despite a horrendous cold and flu bug. Hip hip hooray for perseverance! I started working the 7:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. shift at a coffee shop/deli place located in the business district of Duluth, MN. It's locally owned and all organiicky! I love it. It was super fun today. I really got back into the swing of doing the cash register and greeting everyone. I love shootin' the breeze with random people. That's one thing I really miss while working in TV for so long. I miss the meeting people. I actually MISS customer service. Well, now I am back to it! It's nice to have people be excited for you to get them their coffee. Coffee is especially important to business people. So I am their little breather away from the office. I will be the face they see between number crunching, or selling tuxedos, or doctoring people up. Even though people think of little part time coffee shop jobs as the crap jobs, it actually pays they same as what a lot of people I work with at the TV station are making! Customer service jobs are very important. I met tons of people today. I'm totally pumped about making my first latte today! I love specialty coffee beverages and have always wanted to learn how to make them. Now I shall be a queen barrista! Badda Bing Badda Boom!

So I worked 50 hours this week. Oogah! I'm kinda pooped. Yesterday (Thursday June 9th) I went to MDA (Muscular Dystrophy Association) camp for the TV job. I filmed the activities for the upcoming telethon that we put on locally. It was a 3 1/2 hour drive to camp. It was fun though. I went with my graphics supervisor. We yapped the whole way. No problem for us. Gotta catch up on the office gossip! The kids at camp were amazing. It was so fun. I don't usually do photography work for work so it was nice to change up my experiences a bit. I just hope the tapes turn out well. I haven't trapsed through all of the footage yet. I filmed about 1 1/2 hours worth of fun times!

So there's a recap on my work history for the week... or at least last few days!

Noodling: fishing using yourself as bait.

So this week on the news I learned that NOODLING is now legal in Missouri. My news station showed footage of people (even kids) catching these GIANT CATFISH with their hands. They hold their arms out like a cradle and the fish chomp on and there you have it-->DINNER. Ick! It's scary looking. Catfish are the grossest fish out there! Maybe you should google image some noodling.

I am: weird, creative, eccentric, individualistic, funny, blue, smart, silly, nervous, hyper, lethargic, intrinisic, outward, laughing, crying, sniffing, positive, upward, negative, batty-->hypocritical Posted by Hello

This is the kitchen I grew up with. The beautiful decor of mustard yellow. Super fun half-wall thing. I was bathed in the sink as a wee babe and I learned to tie my shoes on the edge of the linoleum and carpet. Oooohhh, how I do miss that kitchen. :sighs: Posted by Hello

Western Lake Superior Sanitary District--> They take care of our sewers and crap. So, there's an issue with overflows and backups a lot up here in Duluth. Of course, it is not their fault. Shit happens! So now when we drive past 27th Ave on the freeway it smells like my Dad's butthole. It smells like the worst fart ever! It doesn't help that Storenso paper mill is right up the freeway too. For some reason paper mills always smells like flatulence too. Why? Why does the paper making process fart?

FOR THE RECORD: the sewer overflows do not cause the fecal coliform that ends up in the water's edges when they have to close beaches. The fecal coliform come sfrom the seagulls and other animals. That is why you AREN'T supposed to feed the seagulls when you're in Duluth anymore. Tourist's favorite past time!
