...this is a lil late, but...well, I haven't been in the mood to do any updating, tbqh.

thank you to everyone for the bday wishes (and unexpected bday pressies, lol)~

not that most people will care, but bday haul:

telescope (strong enough to see Jupiter *_*)
acrylic paint set (the paint, a painting pad & brushes)
henna kit
10$ gift card at the half price book store
money (rofl, a check for $29 for 29 years...and me w/o a bank account...ilu mommy XD;; )
gummy bears (*_*)
chocolate cupcake vgift (♥ lub_lub_lub)
something still in the mail from mi shile, Jac~ (no idea what it is ;_;

not a bad haul, especially since (except for the unexpected gifts from lub & shile), everything I got, was actually something that I really REALLY wanted *_*

that being said, my actual bday sucked. Kristy decided to have herself a bitch fit, and oh, guess who it happened to be directed at. yeah. yay. and then later, at like 10pm, right before she was off to bed, THEN she stopped by my "room" and told me "happy birthday...sorry, I kinda forgot:\"

wonderful, huh? -_-* at least she's the one that got me the telescope, and we DID kinda have my bday stuff early, but still. bitchfit on my bday, is NOT my idea of fun.

last weekend...well, actually, two weekends ago, now, was when I had my bday stuff. sis and oikko came out, we out to eat at wendy's (I wanted one of their caramel shakes, omfg, I LOVE THEM), then the book store...couldn't find anything I really wanted, and they didn't have the henna kits anymore, so we left there and went to a couple different stores. finally ended up at walmart (I needed cat litter), with sis bitching the whole time about how I hadn't found anything I wanted, so I drug her over to the art supplies.

I shoved her the acrylic paint set I had been eying, but couldn't justify paying $12+ on something I probably would use ONCE*. she grabbed it. pointed out some drawing was especially for acrylic paints, so grabbed that too, and a set of brushes. oh yeah, and some gummy bears on the way out, lol.

* if you know me, you know I SUCK at art. seriously. sis disagrees. I used to kinda scribble, and it came out as abstract, and apparently she's loved a couple of them enough to keep them for herself when I would've just tossed them o.O

anyway, it turns out that I don't completely suck as a painter :O I'm no master, that's for DAMN sure, and it's all abstract so far, but I've actually done a couple that I'm kinda proud of~ once I get a chance, I'll see about scanning them~

she also told me that she's gonna send me her henna kit, cause she still hasn't used it, and she knows I really wanted it, sooo...*_* (yes, Jac, I still have the stuff I got from you, lol. this kit comes with a shitload of stencils, though~ *_*)

I forget how long sis ended up being here, but it was a good long while. she didn't spend the night this time cause of how far apart we live now, but that worked out for the best anyway, lol. I always felt bad that I'd sleep through her visit on sunday, but dammit, it's the ONE day I get to sleep in, so yeah...this time, I didn't have to worry about it, lol.


I dun like getting up at 7am ;_; at Koda's school, the kids have to be there by 7:45 AM. at 8am, the kid is considered late, so I've been having to get up at 7am so I can take care of Nathan while Kristy & Brian drive Koda to school. (don't ask why it takes TWO of them to drop her off...she's their oldest, and it's her first year at school...questioning them is borderline grounds for being drawn and quartered x_x)

omg though, that reminds me...I'm tired and playing a quick game before I crawl into bed, but omfg, this...djhksdfsd:

a couple weeks ago now, Kristy and Brian came home from work, and I went to my room for something (I forget what). when I came out...Koda is telling her mommy and daddy about her "erections".

"I have a BIG erection"/"I have a LOT of erections!"

Kristy (knowing that I read yaoi/slash): ...Anny...why is she talking about erections?
me (seeing life flashing before my eyes): wtf!omg!IDK!! ;_;

we spent somewhere between 5-15 minutes guessing words that sounded ANYTHING like what she was saying. we tried the "show me what you're talking about" approach, and all she did was point to her toys, so that was a bust.

and then I FINALLY figured out what it was. we watch this show called "Dinosaur Train". On the show, two of the lil dinos have.....COLLECTIONS.

Don has a BIG collection, and Shiny has LOTS of collections.

yeah. we worked with her until she pronounced it right, but I'm still a bit worried.

her teacher's name is one that could VERY easily be mispronounced as "Shy Cock". SO FAR, Koda has pronounced it right, but I just KNOW that she's going to slip up one day, and she's gonna say "Ms. Shy-cock, Ms. Shy-cock! Look at my erection!"

and yeah. I am going to die. on the spot. x_x

jhdkfds...okay, game then bed. *waves* goodnight, and again, thanks for the bday wishes ♥

another sucky past couple days (including the tsunami, but I've heard from everyone I know over there, so I'm trying to put that against the suckass stuff:P), something good though (in a MUAHHAHAHAHHA way):

turns out sis & her hubby was never actually fired.

they found out a couple days ago when Dave was talking to Jimmy...he said something about "well, when we were fired.." and Jimmy told him "wait, what? you were never fired..."

which makes a LOT more sense than what HAD been going on. Jimmy does NOT answer the call from someone he's fired, and he answered the phone when Dave called him. He also does NOT send over faxes saying "We were glad to have you while we wishes in your future endeavors!" (paraphrased).

so yeah. we think that what happened is Carol was trying to make it look like they walked out on Jimmy, cause SHE's the one that came to the store to tell them the news, and while she was there, she took a phone call from Michelle (in Jimmy's office...also, the one that I was considering being a surrogate mom for), and told her "it's 9:45 and he's not here..."

Dave was right there next to her, but didn't know who she was talking to, so he thought she was saying that JIMMY wasn't there yet.

so yeah. we knew that Carol hates sis anyway, and that she wanted the store her and Dave were running, but we didn't realize just how bad until the other day.

from what we understand now, Jimmy had already planned on moving sis and fam to this other store...that's probably what he meant when Dave asked him "how can you do this?" and Jimmy said "well, you've been there a while, I figure you've gotten a little stagnant, so it was time to move on..."

anyway...yeah, you can bet we're all not happy with that woman.

and Kristy and I have been having some hellacious blow ups lately. she was actually SCREAMING at me the other day...if it hadn't been for the kids, I would've decked her. I was PISSED. even BRIAN said something to her about all the yelling she's done lately =O

quite interesting. was also interesting when Koda told me today "mommy say it not matter what you say", and then "You not yell at me! I yell at you, you not yell at me!" (which is paraphrasing what Kristy was screaming).

anyway...we talked earlier today. cleared some things up. we're gonna try something new to get along, heh. hopefully it works. if not, at least...


yup, that's right...we finally got the room done:D the walls are up, anyway, lol. I'm actually typing this up IN my room:D

it's not painted, and there flooring is just the cement garage floor, but next month I'll pay buy some paint and get to making this place look livable~

I'll try to remember to take some before and after pics, but no promises:P

anddddddd, on that's a meme and then: GOODNIGHT:D

alphabet meme )
angel_9_lives: (Default)

took the golfcart to run over to the gas station a couple minutes ago, and when I came out to go back home, there were two younger guys (late teens to early twenties) in a truck near the cart...I started around the corner to go home, and I heard one of the guys hollering to turn on the headlights (just kidding around, not asshole-ish or anything), so I turned back around and pulled up to them:

guy: don't have any. don't you hit anybody out there!
me: I'm trying to get them to hit ME, that way _I_ get the money
guy: do you have a flashlight?
me: nope
guy: if I had one, I'd give it to you so you can flash people as you drive by
me: don't need a flashlight for that ;)
him: *jaw drop*
his friend: *laugh*
me: *turns around to leave again*
him: hey! how old are you??
me: old enough!
him: you're not!

on the downside, someone threatened to stab sis' hubby and burn down their store. and for once, it wasn't HIS fault...HE was actually being calm and nice! (there's video proof or I wouldn't believe it either!)

the guy was bowing up on sis, and his wife was calling her a liar...neither of those things are a good idea...especially with any of us around.

Bil normally would've beaten that guy down on the spot, in front of the guys' kids and wife. oikko would've sent sis upstairs to get Bil so he would beat the guy down. I...well, I'd better not say what I'd do...don't wanna leave any kinda evidence that might make it sound like it was premeditated ;)

OH, and I learned something useful about Texas law! it was a very bad idea for sis to have told me about it IS useful:D

when the guy threatened to stab bil, sis had her gun in her lap, cause the guy had already been giving her a hard time and making threats, so she was a lil scared (imagine that).

she told the policeman that if she saw the man trying to come back on their property, she was gonna shoot him. the officer told her that there's this stipulation (I think) called the "wall of seperation".

as long as there is something in between you and your attacker, whether it's a wall, or table, counter, etc., you canNOT shoot them. there HAS to be open ground between you and the person, cause then that person has nothing in their way to stop them from charging at you full tilt.

I told Kristy that that info is entirely too useful. cause I would tell the person "okay, hold on, gonna make sure you have a clear path here...*moves everything out of the way*...*checks for even the smallest pebble or dust speck* ...okay, we're good now." and then let them charge me.

I don't know if it applies to defending yourself with a knife/sword/dagger too though...if it does, then the only drawback to this is that if someone tries to break into the door here at OUR store? we have a chain lock. so I'd have to wait for them to break the door open before I can play "slice 'em, dice 'em" with one of the many sharp objects I keep nearby.

the original plan was that if someone tried to break through the door when I'm here alone/with the kids, I'd grab one of the swords bil gave me and stab through the gap.

now...:\ dunno.

also, they're apparently on the brink of getting fired. bil SERIOUSLY needs to learn to control his temper. *sighs*

*points up* that, btw, is why I've been MIA. too much family stuff going on that I'm not even gonna try posting about. just bear with me:\
angel_9_lives: (Default)
Brian, Kristy and I all agree...we're in love with an inanimate object.

what is it, you ask? a baby gate.

yes, you read that right. a baby gate.

Koda figured out how to open the old one we had, and she'd come running out of her room about 20 times a night for stupid shit, stalling bedtime as much as she could, and THEN, would get up at 6:30am (almost on the dot), and go running into mommy & daddy's room to JUMP in bed with them.

and of course, she's 4, so she's a wiggle worm, and would twist and turn and kick her parents until they finally chase her back to her own room with a spanking.

THIS gate is too tall for her to climb over, AND...apparently hard to figure out, lol. you just push these two buttons at the same time and push down, but Koda hasn't figured it out yet, and it's been 4 hours, muahahahhaha.

we haven't had to chase her back to her room even ONCE yet *_* she is SEVERELY not happy.

Brian and I both agree we would almost have sex with this gate, lmao. Kristy says that's kinda scary, but then Koda failed to open the gate again and she broke out into the "omg-happy-happy-joygasm-joygasm" dance XD

*happy sigh*

on the bad note...talked to sis earlier, and bil's older bro Phil (who I also consider a brother/brother-in-law) has been in a car accident. we don't know HOW the accident happened, but he cracked/shattered one of his eye sockets in two different places, and had to have 23 stitches to close it up, and they still don't know yet if he's gonna need surgery or not.

couple bad things here about that, actually...

no one told his mother. when sis called her earlier to see if Mrs. J knew anything about how he was, she was completely in the dark. she asked sis how SHE knew about it...Phil's wife posted it on facebook.

didn't bother calling the man's mother, or any other family members. and then the woman was bitching about he wrecked "another fucking car", and how stupid he/it was, etc etc.

it's husband was just in a car wreck, and you're gonna bitch about the CAR?! how about being glad that the man is ALIVE, you idiot!


I mean, okay, yeah 6 cars in 4 years IS more than a bit much, but husband's life vs. car...hmmm, let me think here.

*shakes head*

took my blood pressure at walmart...systolic (sp?) was normal, but the diastolic (sp again) was high...not sure what that means:S also, not sure how accurate it was cause the cuff thingy pinched my arm, so I was wiggling...a LOT.

I need to make a mental note to call someone about that though:\ in the meantime, I'm staying on my aspirin regime. dad had high bp + blood clots (that's how he died...blood clot to the lung...what I'm scared of happening to me:S), and mom, I THINK, has low bp. so bad shit on both sides:\

at least mom's diabetes is getting better.

OH, and the dizzy spells she was having? the dr said she had water on the ear, so she's on meds now to fix it up:)

weather has been hell. literally.

today the expected index was 109, with some places reaching 112.

for those of you using celcius:
109 = 42.78
112 = 44.44

ugh. and no rain in sight either:( *sighs*

.....and now: bed time. x_x
angel_9_lives: (Default)
first the spar with mi shilen, and now sis is the hospital, and they don't know what's wrong.

today: go fuck yourself. seriously. it wasn't funny in the first place, and it's even LESS so now.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
ok, so...some of you who know me, know that when I say that my sister and/or I are "playing with the weather", I mean it kinda literally.

examples )

you're free to take those however you like, but you have to admit, it's kinda weird.

The reason I bring this up is cause of Bill.

His projected path says he's gonna stay offshore and travel along the east coast before heading back out to sea. Sis and I aren't so sure about it, and since we were right about Ike and Hannah last year, we're keeping track of our predictions this time.

((cut for the sceptics, and the people who like to think we're crazy:D))

playing with the weather )

this isn't a proper update like it should be, but here's the basics~

we FINALLY got the net back on. it took for-fucking-ever, but it works:D
the lil girl I take care of loves me to pieces. not sure yet if that's a good thing or not >.>;;
I got two of the books I've been wanting for...well...a long time:P: Bloodhound (Tamora Pierce), and Stay the Night (Lynn Viehl).
Kristy ordered the other book I wanted, and I got to read it, but I plan on buying my own copy asap: The Shadow Queen (Anne Bishop) good good book:D *_*

James (my ghost hunting friend) has a vacation coming up in a couple weeks, so he's gonna meet up with me and we're gonna go find something to do~ I'm gonna bring the completed chapters of Etlan so far so he can take a look at them. he's also bringing some books/info he thinks I might be able to use^_^ I'm looking forward to getting to see him again~ he's fun, and neither of us are interested in the other for anything more than friendship, so no stress :D


sorry, but I needed to get that out there, rofl. that damn chapter just about killed me, I swear x_X

Kristy and I went to sis' show/dance recital...she did pretty good :O I'll have to post the pics later:X
speaking of sis...I think she's kinda got her feelings hurt, but...*shrugs* that's another story for another day. too much to type right now x_x

...that's it for now. gotta get to bed. Munchkin wakes up at like 9am...and it's already 2 now. x_X

angel_9_lives: (Default)
omfg, I love my family sometimes! XDDD

things that they are prone to do:

♥ put packing tape over your bedroom door (while you're in it), so that when you walk out, you walk into the sticky side~
♥ turn everything on your desk upside down and hide your chair while you are in the bathroom/kitchen/any room besides your own
♥ change your screen saver to something...really....REALLY unattractive XD

*giggles maniacally*

and now...the vacuum game XD because I'm lazy, copy and paste from a convo:

we'll name the vac. Hoover for now
so far....Hoover has been placed in oikko's computer chair with its cords and attachments on the keyboard/mouse to make it look like it's using the comp
it's been shuffled between staying RIGHT in the MIDDLE of oikko's bedroom doorway and bil's...
(and the bathroom)
Hoover has also been curled up with oikko...
in bed
with oikko's arm around it
and the covers pulled up around them both
it has TWICE taken over oikko's place in his rockband game...
once as the drummer, and once as the guitarist
complete with a shirt and hat, mind you
and the drumsticks

it has taken over bil's seat in the living room, with the remote control even
oh oh, and today...
oikko and I came up with the idea to put it in bil's bed..
with some of sis' bellydance dreadlocks as a wig

and now...


family hijinks FTW )

angel_9_lives: (Default)
how sad is it when you miss your old room mate's PET more than the person themselves? XD;;;;

lol, someone on my flist posted a vid of their cat playing with a rubber band, and my mind instantly went "!! BABE!!" XD;;

rofl, you could fling a rubber band two or three rooms over (depending on how many doors we had open at the time:P), and she's go tearing after it, spazz for a couple secs, then bring it back to you XD

adorable and silly.

on a side note, sis is about two secs from getting my foot shoved in a very uncomfortable place. again. and if oikko doesn't leave me the hell alone, a foot in the ass will be the LEAST of his fucking worries.

*grumbles* off to check on my kitties:D
