I am not evil!!! I just like to pretend I am.

style type="text/css">
body, a
{cursor: url(;}

That is the code you need to paste into your template. I removed a couple '<' so you could see the code. Put one before each 'style'. Here's a link to one site for some cursors and here's another and another. The code is actually included with some of the cursors you can pick so you don't need the one I put up there.

See, I am nice sometimes.

Thank Josh for Peppermint Schnapps!!!!

Nicole and I were sitting around are apartment listening to music and avoiding homework and we were cold. We decided we needed some hot chocolate. As I was making it I remembered the peppermint schnapps I got from Josh. Nicole claims it tastes like we melted peppermint patties. It totally hits the spot right now.

Oh no!!! I just drank the last of mine!!! I might need to make some more.

We are also thinking about going to Hy-Vee around 12:30 to get the fresh Krispy Kreme donuts when they arrive. I don't really like donuts all that well, but fresh ones at 12:30 in the morning sound really good right now.

Around 2:00am...

We left here at about 12:30 to get our donuts from Hy-Vee. We also bought a few groceries that we needed. When we got back around 1:00 Nicole and I were wide awake and started doing some interpretive dancing to Dido and Joanna made a peach cobbler. Then we all laid around on our dining room floor for awhile until we got sleepy. Coffee will be a necessity when I get up.

You are Schroeder!

I got my first parking ticket in Iowa City this morning. That's not too bad considering I have had a car here for about a year and a half now. I will actually pay this one unlike the one I got in Ames for the wrong license plate number.

I made a pumpkin pie today. I haven't tried it yet because it is still cooling. I can't wait to try it.

I went to Stuff Etc. today to see how much money I had made and they gave me a check for about $150. I also got a $50 check from my mom this weekend, so I pretty much doubled how much money I had. I still have to pay rent though. That's a depressing thought.

Build a Better Bush and The Many Faces of Kerry

  • Build a Better Bush

  • The Many Faces of Kerry
  • I haven't even left for work yet and just thinking about what I have to do when I get there is kind of stressing me out. It's not hard, but it is time consuming and a general pain. I have to get it done today as well as teach Shawn how to pour gels. Too much to do and too little time.

    we haven't had a quiz in awhile.. courtesy of Nicole

    Grrr arrr Rum and Monkey.

    This isn't actually the one I got, but I couldn't have the same thing as Joanna, so I did it again to get a different one.

    You wanna hear something weird? Josh also got in a minor car accident similar to mine yesterday. Except he was the one that got hit, not the one that did the hitting. I guess that's what you get for driving a car with bad breaks. I really should get them looked at.

    Stress Level: HIGH!!!

    So I still have some work to do as well as some homework. I have a quiz on Tuesday, a paper due Friday and a test first thing Friday morning. With Josh's birthday on Thursday, I have a lot to get done by Wednesday. The paper is only 3 pages long, but it requires me interviewing a woman I know. I don't know what questions to ask yet. I think I may interview Joanna since she lives with me. I also need to make flashcards for my quiz Tuesday. At least I know it is over the amino acids, but there are about 20 of them and I have to know all of their chemical structures as well as some of their chemical properties. Yay!!! I think I need at least one more day in this week.

    Shauna and Josh came again on Friday and Shauna and I watched Buffy while Josh went to his interview. While we were watching Buffy, the maintenance guy came to dump some stuff down my shower drain. He turned on the fan, opened the window and quickly left as he told us it smelled pretty bad. That was an understatement. It was horrible. Shauna and I were turning on fans, opening windows and lighting candles. I wondered for a moment if it all going to ignite if I tried to light a candle, but I went for it anyway. No explosion followed. When Josh got back, we left for Davenport to escape the stench.

    As I am sure most of you know, Shauna and Josh now have a place to live. Shauna even has a job and Josh isn't happy with the one he applied for. I helped them move again on Saturday. It went pretty quickly. Then the three of us showered at my place and spent the rest of the night watching the 3rd season of Buffy, eating pizza and drinking beer. We started with two six packs, finished those off and ended up making a beer run later that night.

    Anyway, today was fun. I woke up with a headache that never really went away. We sat around and watched Buffy again this morning before Josh and Shauna headed back to Davenport and I left for a thing I actually didn't have to go to. I didn't really eat breakfast or lunch and I had supper around 5:00. My stomach wasn't feeling so great at all today. Slightly better now. For some reason I felt the need to make chocolate chip cookies today and Joanna is making a square pie even though none of us are feeling all that great today.

    On top of not feeling well, I got into my first car accident today!!! An old guy suddenly walked in front of the car two ahead of me so we all slammed on our breaks and with my breaks not being so good, I hit the car in front of me. Luckily neither of us had any damage.

    While we were doing all the moving, my roommates spent the day drinking, passing out and puking. It sounded like they had fun.

    Let the fun begin!!

    I think I know what I want to be for Halloween. Amanda said something about Fraggle Rock characters or maybe an 80's cartoon theme. I think it would be fun to dress up as a group. I think I want to be Jem. I could have pink hair and sing!!! What more could a girl want.

    To continue with my theme of whining from previous posts, my shower drain suddenly got really slow. It started on Monday, after Josh left, so I think I am going to blame it on him. I was going to try to fix it myself, but I think I am just going to call maintenance and let them deal with it.

    I did nothing that I intended to do tonight. I am so proud of myself right now. I think I am going to go make myself some food.

    I was reading The Daily Iowan today and laughed out loud when I noticed a whole page was devoted to the police blotter.

    I am totally loving this weather. It could be a little cooler, but I am not going to complain after all the heat and humidity we have had. I also fixed my sunglasses, so now I don't have to squint all the time.

    I hate my Wednesdays. I have 4 classes, work and my 3 hour physucks lab, which will hopefully not take that long. Only three more days until the weekend. Last week went pretty fast, so I am hoping this one does as well. I just don't want to be as exhaustedthis weekend as I was after last week.

    I better go check on my stuff in the dryer. I don't want to forget it. Ater I fold the last of my clothes I am off to bed. I hope I can stay awake long enough to finish my book.

    Need more weekend

    This may have been a long weekend, but it still isn't long enough. I ended up in Davenport Friday night and Saturday. Josh called me Friday morning and left me a message telling me to skip work and the rest of my classes so I could catch a ride to Davenport with Shauna. That didn't happen, so he came and picked me up around 7:00 and he, Shauna and I went to one of Shauna's friend's house for awhile. Saturday the three of us watched the 90210 marathon and Josh and I went back to IC that night.

    My room still feels very unsettled. I really hate it. It's a mess, which I also hate. It's not organized and have too much crap that I don't really want, but don't know what to do with it. I want to do some organizing today, but I really need to do a little homework since I have yet to do any this weekend. I don't have anything due tomorrow, but I may have a quiz and I need to catch up on some reading. I just don't have any time. I have been so busy the last two weeks. Josh keeps coming on the weekends, so I get nothing done, but I am not going to complain too much.

    I just need to find some time to figure out how everything fits in my room. I think that will help with my stress level. It would also help if my roommates stopped putting my pots in my bedroom. When I got back with Josh and Shauna after looking at the duplex and doing a little shopping with their parents and Eleanor, my pots that my mom just brought me were sitting at the foot of my bed. They had been sitting in the dishwasher, because I didn't think anyone used it, and I hadn't had a chance to figure out where to put them yet. I didn't put away the stuff in the kitchen, so I don't know where anything is in there. If they had set the on the kitchen table with a note or on the hutch, I wouldn't be so frustrated about it, but this passive agressive shit gets on my nerves because that is what Stephanie used to do to Rey and me all the time and nothing ever got accomplished.

    I am not sure when I will have time for stuff next weekend because I ave WISE stuff and a chili dog fair for work on Sunday as well as the tkd budget and a test to study for. I can't believe I already have a test in less than two weeks. I think Josh accidentally saw his birthday present and I think he figured out it was for him because he made fun of me this morning for being the first person in our relationship to decide what to buy for a gift. So much for that surprise, but I do know what his dad is getting for him.
