Got a suggestion for a place called Ace of Fades here in Salem. I love it!!!
I have been training my replacement for my current job/duties at work and she is doing really well so I am kinda just sitting here getting paid to look over her shoulder and play on my phone. Because I don’t have a computer now she has what was mine. I asked my supervisor about that and he said he would check on getting my computer… I told him she is doing really well and I am really bored. Lol I feel bad, too, because I am not making much of a contribution right now. And the day is going by so slowly.
My allergies kicked in on Monday and got to be awful. The worst attack I have had in probably 12 years. My nose and my right eye are just running. I haven’t even been ablebto wear make up to work this week because of my eye. Its a little better today, but yesterday was the most miserable day.
I bought new clothes and shoes this last weekend. I got leggings… I am never wearing real pants again! Lol
I hope everyone had a:
I am sleepy now because I had a headache and took some benadryl for it. I am still shocked how well that works. I wish I had known that years ago. I would rather be sleepy than have a pounding headache!
Cant wait for my new schedule to start!
Oh and I made this the other day. These guys are my top 5… they are my “hall pass” list… my hubby and I each have one. Not that we really would… but its funny. Left to right, in case you don’t know all of them: Tom Hardy, Christian Kane, Eddie Vedder, Jensen Ackles and Chris Hemsworth. Yummy! Lol
Alrighty, I guess that’s it for now…
Apparently I must watch a lot of Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder videos on YouTube…who knew? lol So I got a notification to my phone for this video…I watched it 3 times and laughed so goddamned hard I went into an asthmatic coughing fit…lol
Thank you YouTube!!!
I shared it with my daughter because she had to know what was so funny and then when she had stopped laughing her ass off, I said, “My view of Eddie has been shattered, he is just as big of an idiot as your dad!” lol But in reality, I love him to death and my view couldn’t be shattered, I was just introduced to another facet of his silly side.
I had to pass this gem on for everyone else…lol
On a side note, I strained the bejesus out of my left thumb and the pain is throbbing all the way up my arm. I was holding a heavy basket of keys at work, and I think that’s what strained it…the way I was holding them. So, of course, I’m dying…lol
Weird Al wrote a song about me…
Greatest song ever written!
I feel good today, but I don’t feel like being at work…I feel like doing something fun…being out in the sun and warmth. Instead, I’m stuck in an office that is freezing and doesn’t even have any goddamned windows.
FUCK THIS SHIT!
See that featured image…yeah that’s where I wanna be! Cannon Beach, the best damn place on earth!
I need a beach trip!!!
So I am bored already with my hair…the style anyway…so I am going to grow it up to this adorable and fun a-line bob…
I am staying platinum blonde though, because that looks best on me with how my hair is and my skin tone and green eyes.
I’m excited. But it’s going to take some time because of the shaved parts of my head…lol But I love it, it’s still punky and fun and wild.
I have cheered myself up since my earlier rant by looking at Gifs of Eddie Vedder. I can’t get enough. He is the single MOST beautiful man on earth. I could eat him with a spoon! Anyway, enough…I need to get to bed…my head is starting to hurt…
Good night, Moon….
I am just irritable AF…everyone and everything is annoying me today and I’m at work and have to keep smiling, though I’ve been on the verge of tears several different times…I have an IUD so I don’t get a period anymore, but I swear I must be PMSing….
My arch-nemesis…IE the one single driver I can’t stand because he yelled at me when I was trying to help him came in a little bit ago. I still won’t talk to him outside of what is required to do my job. But he comes in and puts his stuff on the counter…he pulled out his keys from his pocket and sets them down along with a quarter, a nickel and a penny…and says “Everything but the change.” Really, you asshat, you think I want your dirty change? WTF am I going to do with 31 cents??? He’s such an idiot….he got in trouble for talking to me that way and still has never apologized, I’ve had other drivers snap at me over the phone too, but usually within 5 minutes they call me right back and apologize…but him, it’s been like 6 months or something and still nothing. I’m over it…but really how big of an ego do you have to have that you get written up for something and still can’t admit you were wrong…?
Whatever. I’m just irritated about everything.
I can’t wait to go home tonight. I have acupuncture tomorrow and I pretty much plan on spending the weekend doing a whole lot of nothing important but fun stuff instead…like journaling, blogging, reading my Buddhism books and watching Doctor Who…and probably working on my Vedder Fic…yup.
Not too much adulting this weekend! lol
So I have this statement piece that I love, and got at Saturday Market in Portland. It’s a ring made out of the handle of a spoon or fork.
It has cranes on it…so in my new spiritual quest I decided to look up the symbolism of cranes and found a lot of cool info:
The crane’s fidelity and mating rituals make it a common symbol for loyalty and successful marriage. Its fabled long life span also makes it a symbol of longevity.
The crane is a popular symbol in Asian culture, and the practice of folding paper cranes for good fortune, healing, happiness, and success was popularized by Sadako Sasaki, a young victim of the radiation from the Hiroshima disaster. Chains of paper cranes, often numbering a thousand in total, are given as offerings at temples and shrines. The crane is also perceived as a bird capable of flying to the very heavens, and is said to have borne spirits of the deceased there upon its back. In ancient China, the crane was used as the symbol of highest-ranking officials.
The longevity of the crane may also have caused it to be associated with a family tree or lineage. Our word pedigree may come from the French word for “foot of the crane,” or pied de grue. Legend has it that the crane’s legs grow before its wings do, suggesting that the bird has a strong tie to the ground. The crane is also associated with vigilance; it was said to keep watch on one leg while holding a stone in the other foot. The stone would drop if the crane dozed off, waking it and its companions. Heraldry (the art of designing and displaying coats of arms and other devices that identify a family or group) often shows the crane holding a stone in this way, symbolizing alertness.
In one of Aesop’s fables, a peacock laughs at the duller crane. The crane admits that it may not be as visually stunning as the peacock, but it has the capability to soar to the very heavens, whereas the peacock is stuck on the ground. The moral of the story is the commonly repeated adage,
“Fine feathers do not make a fine bird.” In Celtic myth, the crane bag, made from the skin of a crane, held many of the treasures precious to the Irish god Mannanan. One of these treasures may have been the staves of ogham, a rune-like system of writing or divination whose shapes are sometimes compared to the sticklike shape of a crane’s legs.
Omens and divinatory meaning: If you see a crane flying, it may be drawing your eyes to the heavens, lifting your spirits, and inspiring you to trust in the universe. If you see it standing, it may be advising vigilance and alertness.”
I thought that was all really cool.
I am so bored at work, I guess I should start getting key sheets ready…but the light duty guy is STILL putting keys away…it’s like DANG! lol I think he’s just being super careful.
Anyway, back to work….
