Ah, my daughter's randomness... [May. 11th, 2007|09:08 am]
So I joined myspace a while ago... pretty much for the reason I joined livejournal, not so much for posting myself, but for keeping up with other friends and family members who do so. Like my daughter.

So, I was skimming through bulletins this morning, and came across one she had done called "first reactions quiz"... which is kind self explanitory. So I read down her list and get to "alcohol". Before actually reading it, I though she was going to write about us teasing her by telling her no last weekend. Nope, she wrote this:

"34. Alcohol:
haha, reminds me of a party or w/e I went to on.... Saturday?.... maybe... anyways, there was this dude singing about picking your poison or something.... it was funny..... but hey, he made a damned good carrot soup, so I guess it's okay for him to spontaneously burst into song, lol."

Taking a moment, though, I shouldn't be surprised, given how tied she is to music. I really should try to nudge her over to the filkers when we're at Opus, see how she takes to it.

Oh, and Matt, if you read this... Beth wants the recipe for the carrot soup...

Beyond Angry... even though I suspected it was coming. [Jul. 24th, 2006|09:52 pm]

Apparently, some insurance inspectors are also especially good psychics...

It may not have filtered to everyone, but we suffered damage to the house... more specifically the skylights. First, it was the heavy windstorm that blew the neighbors trampoline over... and the safety cage on it cheerfully crunched nice long cracks in both skylights. I told my parents... who hold the actual mortgage and insurance... but things were kind of hectic around then. A few months passed.

Then came the -next- really heavy windstorm that blew off the battered remains of the light over the main bathroom... followed almost immediately by the heavy rains that immediately told us that the remaining piece of cheap plastic that was the second layer of the skylight... wasn't even vaguely waterproof...

We did get it covered... but there was a delay in being able to get a ladder... and honestly, I think the worst damage happened in the first day.

The insurance agency was called... there was some hemming and hawing, some confusion about what sort of insurance there actually -was-... but eventually the parents were told that someone would be out... once they could drive down from Cheyenne... !

Well, if someone came out, they never knocked on the door, never called, never came inside to see the internal damage...

But today, the parents got a letter from the insurance saying the damages to the house totalled some $400 and some odd (I admit, I can't remember the exact number... too angry)... and the deductable on the house... yep, you guessed it... $500.

So even though, to my knowledge, no one ever came out and actually -looked- at the house... we don't qualify for any damage coverage... =growls=

Nevermind that I have plaster falling off the ceiling, that the drywall is dissolving on the walls, that I can't use that tub because somehow the water won't stay contained in the tub (I've plugged the one known damaged section)... basically it's a very uncomfortable half-bath now... it's somehow not bad enough for the insurance to have anything to do with it.

Why not? [Jul. 9th, 2006|10:02 pm]
(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. × I don't watch much TV these days. I own lots of books.  (And am ashamed at how many have vanished over the years...)
× I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (But I probably should...) I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana.
I've watched porn movies.  (I was curious....) × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
it goes on...Collapse )

Empath Meme thing [Jun. 22nd, 2006|04:37 pm]
You scored as Healer. You are a Healer Empath. You take in the energy of others and transmute it. You trigger transformation in others and free trapped energy. You are capable of great healing abilities. You walk between the worlds and bring waves of healing energy with your presence. (from "The Book of Storms" by Jad Alexander

I'm a few minutes away from heading out the door for an interview at Meininger Art Supply. I'd -really- like to get this job...

Wish me luck!

Silly meme thing... [Jan. 28th, 2006|03:14 pm]
So I'm feeling like I should do more with this... but not really up for much today...

Note to self... never run out to do things in a hurry... especially when those things are taxes.

At any rate, to have something up here, a meme:

You Are Rain

You can be warm and sexy. Or cold and unwelcoming.
Either way, you slowly bring out the beauty around you.

You are best known for: your touch

Your dominant state: changing

I find this strangely depressing... =l= [Jan. 14th, 2006|09:52 am]

Your Social Dysfunction:

Being average in terms of how social you are, as well as the amount of self-esteem you have, you're pretty much normal. Good on you.

Take this quiz at QuizGalaxy.com

Please note that we aren't, nor do we claim to be, psychologists. This quiz is for fun and entertainment only. Try not to freak out about your results.

And here I keep aiming to -not- be normal... =l=

Then again, quizzes like this tend to have generalities that don't always fit properly, so I'll use that as the excuse of the day.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I pulled milkrat's hair (-5 points). In April I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points). Last Saturday I stole dranthi's purse (-30 points). In May I set samir1stdude's puppy on fire (-66 points). Last Wednesday I punched ezsleeze in the arm (-10 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-187 points). For Christmas I deserve a lump of coal!


Write your letter to Santa! Enter your LJ username:

Sorry, dranthi, but your purse was cuter than mine... =runs=
