My mac - Powerbook G4

Sorry I've been quite...its been a really busy week. Have another Grammar Theory take home test this weekend so thats always fun. Plus I have something to do for a club with Parent's Weekend since its this weekend. And then on Sunday I'm going home to vote early and relax a little, but I be back here pretty early to finish up my test. Not much else to report life is really boring.

You people are rubbish at clue games lol.

Yesterday I booked my flight to go to England for Christmas :) The prices are really cheap, got my ticket on Virgin Atlantic for $536.95. I paid $936.95 for my flight in June - but that's the busy season. So we're really happy! The big change is, and if any of you paid enough attention to my countdown you would have noticed that it is 4 days sooner, I'm arriving on the 14th of Dec at 6:55am (my usual flight) lol. Pete'll be working so Lin will pick me up. I'm not disappointed by that at all, it'll give me all day to unpack and shower and feel human before gets home :) I do feel bad that I'll miss my niece and nephew's birthday (Dec 17th) but they're only turning 2 and next year Pete'll probably be here for Christmas so we'll be able to be here with them when they turn 3 :)

Today has been SUPER BUSY. I have three things due in Literary Criticism tomorrow - Annotated Bibliography, Abstract, and my group is presenting on Foucault. Fun stuff.

Something exciting is happening...can you tell what it is ? Theres a clue somewhere on this blog ;)

I love I really do. I saw a book at Barnes & Noble that I wanted to get for Pete for Christmas but it would have been $26 plus tax. I got it at amazon for $21 with shipping!! I hope he likes it, he's a fast reader but doesn't read often, but I thought this book was interesting....and I know he'll be interested as it's about one of his favorite TV shows...enough said I think.

What's up with Halloween candy being so expensive ? For a large bag of assorted Hershey's candy (Resses, Hersheys, Kit Kats, etc) Walmart wanted $8!!!! They did have 2 small bags on sale for $4 but that was a rip off! Not buying any until its closer to Halloween, because I'll just eat it. Plus I don't know if the kids from the School for the Deaf and Blind are coming this year. Maybe Big Lots has cheaper candy?

I feel really bad, my friend Tiffany's birthday was on the 5th of Oct and I haven't gotten around to sending her card out :( I didn't know her zip code, then I used my last stamp to send out a birthday card for my aunt! So tomorrow I need to get my butt to the post office to get stamps. Really sorry Tiff! This semester has been MAD BUSY.

How did I get roped into doing an article on tolerance for the school paper? Oh...yeah...I OFFERED ::banging head against the desk::

I think it sucks, but I have until tomorrow afternoon to have it in. I'm going to try to have it done by tomorrow morning so I can show it to the editor-in-cheif and see what she thinks.

Other than that I have to go to Walmart tonight, do laundry either tonight or tomorrow, and research my paper for literary criticism. Fun stuff.

Thanks to Jennie for commenting about HOW I can change my font color :)

PLEASE do not mention to me that I need to change it, I have gathered as much. And I will ASAP if it decides to actually work. Thank you.

*EDITED* - There can you see it now? Back to my real (very unexciting) life...

I just finished trying to read Bhaktin for Literary Criticism - about half way though the essay, the material is very dense and I highlighted about the whole thing.

My cousin Jess emailed me last Friday I think, she'll be in London from January 1st until the 4th so we'll probably meet up! We haven't seen each other since I was 7 and she was 14 so it should be interesting. Pete's cousin from Australia is coming for Christmas and he hasn't seen her since they were really young as well so it's a long-lost cousin meet up holiday season all around. PR midterm tomorrow, and a quiz in News and Feature Reporting. Fun fun. Then I have a midterm in Journalism on Thurs. I'm freezing so I'm going to bed.

Well on my powerbook the body font color changes when I put in the code to change it. But on a PC its the same. Can someone please look at my source code and figure out how I can lighten up the bloody body font color ??!!! Driving me crazy lol

Monday, October 18, 2004

So after trying to fix the font color a lot, I have now made the font for the posts white, if it's still where you can't read it I dunno what to tell you. I've found that it depends on your screen brightness so brighten up your screen if you want.

Today has been a long day. Pete's first day at work went well, and he got his package today so he was happy :) Seems as long as he gets 36 hours in a week (the work week in England, whereas over here its 40!) he can pretty much pick his hours so yay. That should be nice, maybe he can work it so he gets a day or two off when I'm over for Christmas. He said its funny how many people try to rip off the DSS (not sure what that stands for Department of Social Services? but the people who give out the money to unemployed people basically.) He said that this one guy wanted them to pay for the catering at a funeral he has to pay for or something ??!!! And another guy wanted them to pay for his cab fare on holiday, he went abroad on holiday on..A PLANE..even though he said he's afraid of public transportation. So he wanted them to pay for the cab fare because he couldn't get the public transport to the airport WTF??!!! Anyway.

I have a midterm and a quiz on Weds, and a mid-term on Thursday. Woohoo. I'm so happy. Yeah. Right.
Hmmm so the layout looked ok to me last night, but now the posts are under the left menu instead of being aligned with it. Hmph. I know the type is hard to read, I might try to lighten the font color, but I'm way too busy right now.

New template, finally got the comments working...

Its from BlogSkins for some reason I can't add that to the Credit section, but I might just be doing something stupid so I'll try again tomorrow.

So...I have news....

Today I called Pete, Lin answered the phone being all peppy as usual :)

So she said "I suppose you want to talk to my son right?" And I said, "Ah I suppose I'll have to" as I usually do. So then she said, "You've heard his news then?" But hadn't. So replied, "nope." Then Pete came on and told me his news.....

HE GOT A JOB!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

He had an interview last Thursday but I didn't want to jinx it by mentioning it on here, but a few people did now :)

So yay!!!!!!!!!!!!! We'll be able to be together for Christmas yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He starts on Monday, at the Job Centre doing office work :)

Maybe I should go look at flight prices? I think I have enough Virgin miles to upgrade to premium economy - oooo lala.

Ok because of some confusion I have a correction to make: My roommate doesn't have the making of "Bring It On" but she does have the dvd. She and her cheerleading buddies were practicing their dance in here last night for an hour and a half. Lovely. Ah.
My room has been cheerleader hell for the last hour. All I wanted was to relax and watch TV, and now I'm stuck in the making of the movie "Bring it On" which my roommate has - is that pathetic? Yes. Is it puke worthy - yup. God help me.

Just added a Bridget Jones fanlist, or at least I'm trying to lol.
So what did I do today? Spent 5 hours at a computer screen in the library working on my Grammar Theory take home test. 5. Straight. Hours. My old roommate also has the class so we were in there together looking at tons of books and internet sources trying to do the 5 identification words (which took around 3 and a half hours) and started on the first essay. I didn't think I so very tired but as soon as I got back here to chat with Pete my eyes hurt really bad. So we only chatted about half an hour before I had to lay down. Then almost an hour later me and my old roommate went to go get something to eat, ended up walking around town then deciding to drive to TGI Fridays. Pete is going to be so jealous but I had a rack of ribs mmmmmmm. So good not to have to eat dining hall food!!! Anyway so tomorrow the library doesn't open until 2pm but in the morning I'm going work on an essay that's due on Monday, its just a 2 page thing. Then I have to finish my Grammar Theory test (due on Tues) and then work on an article that's due on Tuesday. The two main things I want to get done tomorrow are the essay for PR and the take home test, the article I can do on Monday evening or even if I have to in between my classes on Tuesday (but I want to get it done asap.) I really hate school, I need time to relax. My eyes are hurting again now, so I guess that's about it. I think my old roommate is coming over to my room again later and we're going to watch a movie and veg out and try not to think about the take home test!!!!

10 Commandments for College

Kinda sick, but ever so true unfortunately - well except for drinking and sleeping with people bits at least for me lol.

And so it begins....

I knew this semester was going to be a lot of work, but it didn't hit until this week I think because of all the hurricanes and craziness.

I have exactly one hour of "free time" then I'm off again to eat dinner, go to a club meeting, then maybe exercise, and then back to reading I have to do. Have a lot due on Thursday and a lot due next week. It sucks. And to add insult to that, I'm getting really pms-y and just had a really gross wave of exhausted/nauseous feeling come over me, and pains in my stomach. Great.

Yesterday evening I came back to school after working at the motel most of the weekend, so I didn't have a lot of time to relax but at least I made some money :) Well after I got back into town I tried to find a parking spot, and had to go over to the lot in back of the gym to find a space. Well I was stopped at a stop sign, waiting for the cars to pass so I could turn left - and a guy came up to my passenger side window. I guess I looked freaked out because the guy, who was around my age said "I didn't mean to scare you sweetie..." Ick. Don't call me "sweetie" - I don't know you and I don't even like people who know me calling me sweetie, or honey, or hun - I just don't. (If you know me and have called me this before don't feel bad to have used the term, I'm sure I would have told you if I minded that much.) So they guy who called me "sweetie" asked me to drive him closer to where he lived, which was near Walmart apparently. Because, his friend didn't come to pick him up from work, or he got out of work early or something. He might have been telling the truth, he did have a take-out box so maybe he worked at a restaurant? I dunno. But did I let him get in my car...ummmmm NO! Its one of those things that happens that makes you flash back in your head to every rape/murder/crime case you ever saw re-enacted on TV there you scream at the TV: "Don't let him get in your car!!! You don't know him!!!! Noooo!!!! Ahhhhh!!!!" Etc. So I didn't.

I've been thinking about that coat I blogged about, I went to both Targets at home this weekend and didn't find it, but then again its Oct in Florida so its not like it's exactly winter. They had a few trench coats and leather jackets out though but no proper coats, and they might not have them out until almost Christmas, or never. So I might order it online, I dunno. Going to see how it looks for me going over to England for Christmas, if that looks like its going to happen I'll probably get the coat, if not I'll wait until another time to get a new one. Fingers crossed though, things are looking hopeful, don't want to tell too much though or I might jinx it :)

I think that's about it....

OH! HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY TO TIFFANY FOR TOMORROW!!!!! Another friend of mine that is now legal :( I feel deprived lol.

Woooohooo its October! Still hot here but not unbearable, maybe I should put my weather pixie back up? Anyway. I watched the debate on Thursday night, or at least an hour of it.If their one of them repeated themselves one more time I was going to break the TV. So we'll see how I feel about the other debates...domestic policy is the one I'm most interested in because foreign policy is pretty useless you're not doing anything in this country to improve it. ::cough:: Bush ::cough::


I saw this coat and am thinking about getting it, need to try it on in the store though as I've only seen it online: Target black coat I really need a new coat especially if I'm going to England for Christmas (which is up in the air at the moment but we're hopeful.)

I knew theres something else I wanted to say but I can't think of it....
