Reasons to make the slanty face

:\ You know, in between the smile and frown. I'm more often :\ ing.

P is gone to class, but will be back in a little over an hour. Also, he's going to a Street Fighter club thing tonight, that I would like to go with him, but I don't know that I'll be feeling up to it. The fact that he's going is a reason to smile, though.

Being the first one into the office on Friday's when we get doughnuts delivered, having my pick of any one that I want, and turning and walking away because I'm dieting.  :-\

I come home to see about 30 cops walking up and down my street. I'm home alone tonight. The cop told me it was nothing, i think it was just so i didn't get scared. And, it didnt work, i've been freaking out since i got home.

sorry Us..... Where do you live? I'll come spend the night ~^_^~

I can't seem to be able to explain the concept of seitan to my mother.  She's just like..."well.... you have fun eating your powdered....thing...I'll eat my REAL turkey."  It makes me sad.

Also, I sponsored a turkey for thanksgiving. His name is Hawthorn, and I am super excited but everyone else thinks it's dumb.  I have his picture hanging on the fridge and even my vegetarian room mate was like "that's cool I guess...but you do know turkeys are really stupid right?"

I'm just like....WTF?? Maybe we're the dumb ones. I've never seen a turkey f*cking up the environment it relies on.  Just makes me sad that no one seems to understand my love for teh animals. *sigh*

Turkeys are notttttt stupid!
That makes me cry that someone, let alone a vegetarian, said that.

actually, if you give them a ball, they'll play a soccer-like game :)
super smart creatures. not that that really matters, anyways.

Not that we have developed any decent measure of turkey IQ, but even if turkeys are stupid... why would that give us an excuse to abuse and exterminate them? UGH, the arrogance of the human species drives me crazy. Are we going to start having the mentally disabled for dinner because they score lower on IQ tests too? I know that seems extreme, but that's the kind of logic we're talking. I pray that som day we as a people will realize that the act of inflicting pain and misery upon other sentient beings only increases the suffering we experience at an interpersonal level. :(

I knew many a turkey when I worked at a farmed animal sanctuary. I wouldn't say that they're stupid - they're very curious and friendly. I think they got the reputation of being stupid *because* they're so friendly... even wild turkeys to hunters, apparently. I guess that makes them "stupid" in the evolution way if they get all friendly with their predators.
But they're very nice creatures, and funny in what they do sometimes. I knew a high-maintenance turkey, who would insist on getting attention whenever I was around. I'd come in to clean the barns, and if I stood in the same place long enough, she would come and sit on my feet (you have no idea how hard it is to pick up a turkey if they don't want to get up). Or, she'd sit in my work (pile of old straw). Or on my rake. And they'd she'd bark at me, until I pet/scratched her til she fell asleep. (but then she would still be sitting on my work -_-). She'd get pissed if I walked away (they make different noises/flush red when they're angry). I had SUCH a demanding girlfriend *rolls eyes*
I was sponsoring her for about a year, and then somebody adopted her ^^ Now she can sit on *their* feet FOREVER. Sucker.

Today at work I fell on my butt. Not only that, but I tried to break the fall with my arm and landed hard on my wrist. A girl helped me up, then I felt dizzy and weird, passed out I guess and the next thing I was aware of was sitting on the gross floor with the manager supporting me. And then about three people brought me water at the same time, which was silly. And everyone came into the back to look at me. Long story short, my wrist broke when I fell. Hurts like a bitch. They did a CAT scan because on the xray it looked like bone might have gone into the joint, so I might have to have surgery. Right now I'm loopy on pain meds. On the plus side, it's covered by work AND maybe I can make sad face at my parents and they'll drive me back from KC. Hehe..

Fb, that turkey sounds silly. I like it.

Andy and I sponsored turkeys too!  Mine is Olive and she is hideous.  I showed my mom and dad when they stopped by last week and they made fun of her.  Then Andy got his picture - Gideon - and he's gorgeous.....but I still treasure my ugly little turkey....
Their pictures are on top of the entertainment center.

Feel better PonyCakes!!!

My slanty face is that I need to fill out the employment paperwork.  But their main office is a 90 min train ride into the city. For 15 minutes of paperwork.  Then 90 min back home.  Ugh!

I rang up a company for a job interview on Friday, they said "sure!" and we arranged that I would come in at 9am Tuesday and they took my email address and said they'd send me the address and info. It's now Tuesday, they never emailed so I don't know where to go. And I didn't realise they hadn't emailed until after office hours yesterday so haven't been able to call and ask. And even though it's their fault, it'll probably make me look bad. Sigh.

It is 6:30 in the morning. My BF just left for Germany for a week leaving me alone in China for that time with my pretty much non-existent Chinese language skills. I also woke up with a cold and the inability to breathe through my nose and I now have enough Eucalyptus rubbed on me to overwhelm anyone with a normal sense of smell.

On the up side, Eucalyptus works and I can now breathe slightly through one nose whole.  :-\

oh my goodness, we took my brother's girlfriend to watch a NZ v England test at a pub in Holland last year, I could not stop laughing at the questions she was asking, it was hilarious.
I do think you probably need to grow up in a country that plays it to 'really' get it.
