Feb. 5th, 2006 @ 12:27 pm An Open Notice to My Friends
If you see me around sometime this month and I seem kind of fucked up (particularly if I look like I've been crying), please don't worry too hard.

I'm changing antidepressants, which will take around 20 days total, and until all my little neurotransmitters settle back down, I may be a little off sometimes.

Hey all you kids who work in downtown! I'm backing to work in Mpls now, so we should have lunch sometime.

Started a new temp job today, administrative assistant in advertising at Campbell Mithun. A couple amusing things...Collapse )

Also, as some of you know, I'm a bit of a compulsive organizer. Which leads to interesting results when I've finished everything they've given me and are too busy to get me started on something new. And the cube (actually it's more of a suite as cubes go) I'm in houses all the office supplies for the group. So let's just say that all the post-its are sorted by size and the pens are organized now.

The worst part is that my boss told me I could goof-off on the internet if I wanted. Which I did a bit of, but I feel kind of weird slacking off on my first day. But who knows, there may be other days.

vaxjo is throwing a birthday party for me and rock_moniker on Friday, which is super cool of him. You can get the details here.

Apr. 9th, 2005 @ 10:55 pm Cooking day
dangerdhotrod started it. I was just sending him my recipe for Cheezy-No-Cheese biscuits, but this incited the need to make some of my own. And then I figured that while I was at it, I might as well cook myself some new pants.

Yup. Pants. And a shirt. I had a huge (but super cheap) stockpot I had been saving for just this occasion. So I added some salt and a couple bottles of RIT dye and a couple hours later... viola! New pants. I took the jeans that had started out dark blue (but faded weird) and cooked 'til done. And a shirt that I had spilled bleach on years ago.

I also at pants_of_doom's suggestion started reading the Discworld books. Super cool. I wish I had Luggage.

All in all, a fairly lazy day around the house. Now I'm trying to decide if the night is still young or not...

p.s. It seems like my phone just ate a phone call/ message. So if someone called me a bit ago, please call back!

And I haven't even been playing it! However, it caused my little brother to get cable internet installed at my parents' house. We just plugged in my router (which has apparently decided to cooperate with my wireless card, at least for the moment) and I took my laptop for the road trip. Not so great in the den (which is also where I get a crappy cell signal, related?), but functioning in my room and very good in the office. Now I just have to look into getting my parents' computer hooked up. Anybody got a spare wireless ethernet card laying around?

Things are also bright on the job front. I just keep going to Springboard and they just keep paying me. Caly & I made an OfficeMax run this afternoon, where we were not asked if we were sisters.

And in other news, I'm moved back into my parents' house for the time being. It's got its pluses and its minuses. But without a doubt, free laundry is a plus. I get to have clean clothes whenever I want!

Mar. 27th, 2005 @ 09:16 pm Plea for Help
As many of you probably don't know (since I haven't said much about it), I'm moving.

As such, I'm now soliciting help with schlepping my stuff to Bloomington. So if anyone is available and can help out, you will have my eternal gratitude (and help hauling your own stuff around should the need arise at some point in the future).

The plan:

Tuesday, March 29th. 6:00 or 6:30 pm.
330 5th Ave SE (the corner of 4th Street & 5th Avenue)

My plan is to leave my place at 7:00, which should be well after rush hour. It'll only be one trip, so baring unforeseen catastrophe, it shouldn't take all night. Like I mentioned, it going to Bloomington. My big furniture is already moved, so I've got boxes and a few smaller pieces. And I've already moved the majority of my books.

Again, I would be most grateful for any assistance. Thanks!

I had a very sleepy weekend. What started out as the sniffles last Friday, turned into full-fledged sick over the weekend. Thanks vaxjo. You didn't have to share with me. No, really.

Stayed in with Vaxjo and had a fire on Friday night, which was a lovely way to spend a freakishly snowy evening. We even had 17 out for a while, which was fun. Also, it apparently bugs 17 when I get excited and start talking with my hands a lot. Particularly when he's around my neck.

And then I was sick. And for the life of me, I can't construct most of what I did for three days. I can only assume I slept through most of it. I can't really remember Saturday, have a couple blips from Sunday and can actually figure out what I did after about 3pm on Monday. It was a lot of sleeping.

So while it wasn't the most exciting weekend, I had a nice, warm, dark place to sleep and someone to make me food and that my friends, is worth a lot.

Hey kids, I was shopping at Cub Foods last night (yeah, yeah I know). In any case, I was examining the ingredients in Brownberry Natural Breads and they may not be vegan anymore. I didn't look at all the different kinds, but the couple I did check had milk and/or whey in them, so I thought I'd give y'all a heads up.

Mar. 14th, 2005 @ 01:45 pm Hey All You Climbers
You free April 15th through 17th? You know you'd be climbing anyways, so wanna climb for a good cause? Black Diamond and REI have teamed up with the HERA Foundation to raise money to fight ovarian cancer.

Climb for Life

I climbed last year and thought that it was a really well organized event. Yes, they are charging a $20 entry fee but the money goes directly to HERA to offset the costs of putting it on. (P.S., Black Diamond and a couple other companies donated some really awesome prizes last year.)

I know I'm going to be climbing. And in turn I'll be looking for sponsors. I need to get all the paperwork and figure out how much I'll try to climb, but I figured I'd mention it now.

I'm also looking for a belayer for at least part of the weekend so I can get some good climbing in at VE.

So that's that. If you want to know more, check out REI or HERA's website or let me know.

So far I'm having an excellent Tuesday. I had dinner last night with parageek. We actually go way back, to the good old days in Glock's chemistry class. God, that would have been sophmore year in high school. So we talked and had super yummy pizza at Luce. (Hey parageek, I just discovered your leftovers in my car this morning. I didn't see them last night. They're umm, kind of frozen. But I'm sure they're still good! I could maybe get those to you later tonight.)

I also lowered my anti-depressant levels a little bit, and now I'm more awake! I had upped the dose when things got really crazy and forgot to lower them. So that's pretty exciting too. For the record, I take trazodone, the main side effect being sedation.

So although it's a bit too cold for my taste, today just feels like an exciting day. Who knows what'll happen?! And someone very cool is bringing me an excellent lunch. What could be better! And I have coffee. Now I just have to see if the website is working properly today...
