I am absolutely stunned. No, another friend didn't tell me she was a lesbian. ;-�
I sent my father an email yesterday. In a polite, joking manner (saying I was putting my size 6 foot down), I asked him to please stop nagging me about whether I've gotten the truck fixed, whether I've gotten a job, how much money I have, how I'm spending it, etc. I told him that he would be the first to know whenever things change in those arenas. I told him, due to this ulcer, I really need to cut my stress, & not be nagged by my family so much.
He wrote back a stunningly nasty, sarcastic response....one I simply didn't appreciate.....
You can read it ( here, & tell me if I am wrong to be upset.Collapse ) Current Mood: crushed
Think I'm gonna have a coke float....it sounds good, anyway. Caffeine free Coke, of course. :-)
I have to finish working on the jacuzzi this afternoon. I already took the blue tarp off, which had living creatures in it. Ick. The jacuzzi's been covered since last summer. It's pretty dirty inside, too. I am going to try to clean it without having to drain it...since it doesn't drain. I'd have to use a wet/dry vac....and what a pain that would be. When I get any water in the backyard, it turns into a mud bath. There's a bunch of dirt on the bottom...not so bad, but I don't know if my crappy vacumn will clean it. Maybe I should get a better one. I tested the water....there's no bromine left (no shock there), the pH level is fine, but the alkalinity is low. I am going to take some water to Leslie's Pool Supplies tomorrow & see what I need to put in the water. The water level is low, but not as bad as I expected. I am going to go work on it after my soap is over, & I have a lot to do. I need to clean the cover. Even under the tarp, it got dirty. I have to clean the heating pad on top of the water. I will try to vacumn it. I have to cut a round hole in the heating pad in order to make my "invention" work. That's something I will write about if it works. I will be testing it out...it might not be such a brilliant idea. We'll see. If it works, it will be fucking brilliant...but I can't take all the credit, since my friend Michael gave me the idea, & the guy at Lowe's helped me figure out how to make it happen.
It's gonna be a mess in the backyard, with the hose on, & all the dirt. Ick. I really want to make the entire backyard concrete. But that will take a lot of money. Which I ain't got. Naturally.
I can't believe how fast weeds grow in my backyard...even THROUGH the concrete. Amazing. Current Mood: determined
| Is anyone who's reading this going to the LJ Bash in Los Angeles? I am going (Saturday night only) & would love to meet some people there. Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller? Current Mood: curious
That Coke float was crap. The Coke was fine...I think the frozen yogurt tasted icky. What a bummer. Current Mood: disappointed
Andrea Yates has been found guilty of capital murder. This can be a death penalty case.
They found that she was of sound mind when she killed her kids.
Thoughts? Opinions? Agree with the verdict? Angered by it? Over it? Current Mood: pleased
Went to Wendy's for dinner. I am trying to eat a bit healthier, or at least, not so greasy & spicy. I usually go to Wendy's & get a burger or a chicken sandwich & a plain baked potato with some sour cream. Yum. Twice in the last 3 days, I have asked for a "sour cream & chives baked potato with NO chives," & they have covered it in chives. Ick. Chives=bad. How difficult can it be to get that order right? What part of "no chives" do you think they aren't getting?
I spent 5 minutes picking the chives off. What an annoyance. I should just buy my own potatoes...but I NEVER cook them the right amount of time....I either over or under cook them. And it's only a buck at Wendy's.
My jacuzzi invention worked but not perfectly. ( Read about it here.Collapse ) Current Mood: complacent
I just did some research about ulcers.
It says that they can take 8 weeks to heal, although you generally feel better in 2 weeks.
Apparently, most ulcers---while aggravated by diet & stress---are caused by a bacteria called H. pylori. My doc needs to do some tests to see if I have that bacteria in my system. Current Mood: anxious
So this guy clicks on my profile on HotorNot.com. I thought he looked kinda decent, so I clicked yes to him.
He responded with this LOOOONG email, telling me why I should date him.
Two of the reasons amused/disgusted me:
-can last 35-50 minutes without Viagra
-I trim my pubes
Ummm....does this schmuck or any other man think that having intercourse for 35-50 minutes straight is a PLUS??? You gotta be kidding me. Am I unusual? Am I the only woman who is annoyed by this? Foreplay is lots of fun....but I don't want actual intercourse going any longer than 5-10 minutes...that's all I can handle. And the whole shebang---foreplay included---shouldn't be longer than 30-60 minutes. That's just me. But I DETEST "marathon" men...men who just keep going, like the energizer bunny....and then they want to go again in 15-30 minutes. **sigh** I'm going to write him back & inform him that---to me---THAT is NOT a plus, in fact, it's a serious turn-OFF!
The trimming of the pubes...that's a wonderful thing, everybody should trim, but I find that strange to announce to an absolute stranger...but again, maybe that's just me...
Am I ever going to find a man whose sex drive is as small as mine? Current Mood: amused & irritated
