I didn't get a lot of sleep as I couldn't fall asleep last night, but I woke up around 10 a.m. I got to talk to jtane online for a bit, which was nice because I hadn't talked ot him in awhile. I got to talk to Chapo, EM, and LEK from work that day, so that was nice. I talked to my family. I got my hair cut, and then I met NC picked me up (another girl I work with) and we met up with people at Josephine's in Ferndale.
Let me just say that it is the coolest place EVAR! Seriously! It is the best French food I've had since being back in the states almost 8 years ago now. We had appetizers of Cajun shrimp and another one of scallops. I tried someone's French onion soup, which was seriously the best soup I've ever had. I got the seafood crepe. It had shrimp and scallops with a newburgh sauce and a buckwheat crepe. To DIE FOR. Then as a birthday treat the chef sent me out a raspberry liquor shot in a dark chocolate thimble shot glass. To finish off the meal, I had a crepe with nutella, bananas and whip cream. It was AWESOME! Not to mention the fact that the chef actually came out and chatted with me a bit. He was totally cool and kind sexy for an older gentleman. And the wine was really cool. We had a bottle of white and a bottle of red and it was yummo! So to recap, if you live in MI or visit MI, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out Josephine's Creperie & Bistro in Ferndale.
The only thing better than the meal was that I was surrounded by people who care about me. That made it worthwhile. Chapo, LEK, EM, and NC from work came. Then there was nevik_roc, Dewey, schmise, aerospcgrl, mcniadh, puggleville, earthfiregirl, madkingludwig, and physic_phoenix. It's very cool to be loved.
a) my roommate/landlord Jill is moved/ing out. How did we find out? Well I walk in the door and first notice that the glass cabinet that kept all her cop stuff in was gone. So I jokingly started to say something about it not realizing that Niki was on the phone with her. Then I saw the NOTE.
( The Roommate Situation Rant )
b) I ended up getting people upset at other people and it was completely unintentional, so I feel bad.
( I fucked up....oops )
c) Is it Friday yet????????
d) This is fun ( Which Sci-Fi character are you? )
This morning, I was thinking about my situation. Then I remembered a play I read in college by Sartre. It's called Huis Clos or No Exit in English. The play, in it's simplest form, is about a group of people stuck in a room. Through conversation they find out each other's darkest secret and basically get on each other's nerves in the worst way. It turns out that they are in Hell. That most people think of their idea of Hell being fire and brimstone and a red guy with horns. But in all actuality it is a norm/typical situation that one may find him/herself in. The only difference is that in the play, you can't leave. So it's about how we each create our own personal Hell and it's a tailored fit for your own personal needs.
I have decided that this...is my own personal hell. The difference is that I know I can get out of it. I would like to look for a job now as I am on the computer all day, but I am sure people here would frown upon that. :) It'll get better. I just need to be proactive again vs. wallowing in my self-pity.
Funny moment from last night. I'm sitting on a couch talking to V and thecat and I mentioned that my butt was no longer numb. Thecat shoots a look at V and I said, "he had absolutely nothing to do with my butt being numb!"
Good part of today: loud people do not come in till 12. woohoo!! Wednesday and Thursdays are good days at work. :)
Bad part: I passed Niki on the expressway. She was in a minor accident. Her and her car are fine, but she was late for work. I was driving by saying hey that looks like...Fuck that is Niki. But I called her and all is well with the world.
twice, and perhaps even 3 times. I'll call him Bob for the sake of anonymity. So Bob calls on Friday and asks me these questions about his credit report that I really didn't have an answer to. It turns out he was just attempting to mack some free advice when one actually has to pay $30 for it. A service I believe I tried to sell him on Thursday, but he wasn't into it. So today, I'm at work and I get a call. I start the same thing, "Thank you for calling....My name is Jenny. May I have your name please?" He responds that his name is Bob (I recognized it as well as his voice) and he said something stupid like, "so are you like Jenny from the block?" "Yeah, something like that, can I help you?" Then he wouldn't get off the phone until I found the information about what actually composes a FICO's credit score. Egads!! It took me awhile to find it. I don't know if he specially requested me or if it's just been my good fortune to come across him.
The Jennifer Lopez moment is the newest one to chalk up in reference to being a Jenny. I get tons, which include _earthshine_ singing 867-5309 when he sees me (which I think is funny) to Forrest Gump's "Jenny", "Jenny I know what love is". There are others that are escaping me at the moment, but I couldn't believe when he said "so are you like Jenny from the block?" Yea me! :)
( A I hate my stupid life rant... )
So after that rant, I must say that I can't wait for this party on Saturday (which everyone should come...hint....hint...nudge...nudge). I am anticipating that it will be a good time. I think it has the potential for weirdness, but what is a party, really, without a little weirdness? Niki and I have a lot of work to do on the house. She went buck nutty on the garage and now it's cleaned up for the party, and we can park 2
cars in the garage. I'm excited, but I could've kicked her pregnant ass for doing it by herself. So now stuff that was in
the garage is in the kitchen and I'm not going to be home much this week. oops!! :)
Later on, schmise and I went to dinner at Fridays in Novi and then off to the Town Center to see Cellular. I do not think it was supposed to be a funny movie, but I thought it was hilarious. I laughed out loud through sometimes inappropriate parts. :) I wouldn't pay $9 to go see it, but we paid student prices and got cut a deal on popcorn and pop that was a decent size vs being big enough to feed a 3rd world country, so I figure it evened out. :) Then it was off to Borders where a) I really shouldn't buy any more books and b) I couldn't find what I was looking for anyway. It's all good.
I did come home though to a very "fall" looking house. My roommate went buck nutty with decorations for the holiday season . She has also gone buck nutty with lights and what not for the Halloween party. (which by the way no on on LJ seems interested in coming :P) Now for those of you who helped us move already knows that she owns about 5-7 boxes of Halloween stuff and yes, she actually did purchase more recently because she misplaced her lights. :) It should be an interesting mix of people for the party, so I am very excited about it.
Now I have to go out to my car in the rain because I always leave my cell phone in the car. grrrrrr.....
( Friday )
( Saturday )
( Sunday Part I - Creepy morning dream.... )
( Sunday Part II - The rest of the day... )
I did have a fun conversation with my friend Shakira in AZ. She and I have pretty much decided to go to
Off to take more drugs and go to sleep!!!!
Now, I will be starting my new job on Monday and that is giving me a ton of stress as well. I'm living in Ypsi and the job is in Farmington Hills. It's going to be a somewhat unpleasant drive. It's also a real job and stuff and that's spooky. This will be 2nd real job. Sure I've done lots of work for many companies before, but this is my first real job post college. It's spooky. Plus I need to be very careful. Today is the day that my insurance runs out. I will not have medical & dental insurance until January. Please do not run over me in a bus. :)
I do have a small CVS rant though. Near my parents they are building a new strip mall, which is annoying in and of itself. The first thing going in there is a CVS. The point between the new one going up and the next one near my parents is exactly 1 mile! Then passing the one near my parents while driving schmise home, the next CVS is 1.1 mile. Explain to me why we need 3 CVS's that close to each other??????
So that's it for today and my first post. Please be patient while I learn things about this that I don't know yet. :)
