Due to all the salty stuff I've been eating my blood pressure is through the roof.
It all started Tuesday when a doctor kept trying to push gastric bypass on me. My self esteem was so high I needed some fully loaded nachos, extra buttered popcorn, and cheez its.
As some can see I've been viewing your pages at home. Did I get that new laptop? Nope! Just beat up my CPU...literally. I found the motivation to swap monitor's to find that it wasn't the monitor, it was the CPU. So in playing with this, that and the other I grew frustrated and hit the system closed fisted a few times and when I turned every thing back on VIOLA! Weird. I wonder how long this will last.
I should comment on my last post but don't really feel like it right now.
I swore that I would not join any more social type sites. I barely keep up with what I have accounts for now! Then what do I get Tuesday? An email from one of the chicks from Elon's graduate admissions updating us on stuff and informing us that she has started a closed group for us on Facebook so we can start to get to know one another! *sigh* I really was trying to stay away from Facebook and the rest of that stuff but I'm wayyyyyyyyyyyyy to nosey not to join and see the folks I'd been spending 2010-2012 with. 30 people plus the chick from admissions have joined so far and just like I thought, I am the only big person and the only chocolate drop in the bunch. Figures.
For the first day nobody said anything so I broke the ice and now we all are "talking". One girl said she feels like she walked into the newest Real World house just with more strangers. It really does feel like that. One of the girls said that we should all go out and do something once everyone has moved to NC. I agreed and suggested bowling. Everyone loves the idea so I guess we'll be doing that sometime around the end of the year.
There are 8 more students who have not joined the group yet so I don't know if "Brooklyn Blue Eyes" made it in, but the chick I mentioned in the same blog entry who was the stereotypical blonde and sported a black and white polka dot shirt with the thick belt that goes under the bust made it in! I was so surprised to see her listed. She graduates in May from NC State and she put the offer out there for me and another girl in Raleigh to hang out. I don't know about that just yet. I have no reason to be hesitant, I just am.
A dude from a box office called me the other day to tell me that the tickets for the Bob the builder show I brought early last year (February/March if I recall correctly) were being refunded because the show was cancelled! Sweet!!!!! I am hoping that my credit card folks will consider that April's payment but I have a feeling I will not be that lucky! LOL! Part of me wants to use that money to buy a solo ticket to see my favorite ventriloquist that's coming to town soon, but I told myself I wasn't buying any more tickets. I won't lie, the Rollergirls have a game here in Raleigh in May and a friend of mine who has been told me that I HAD to go and I want to go. It doesn't help that the tix are super cheap. *sigh* Luckily the games rarely sale out and I can buy tickets at the door for a few bucks more if I don't make my mind up until the last minute.
I'm dropping Pooka off at my father's house tomorrow and while I was talking to my father's wife today she told me that my father told her I was 25. She corrected him and he incorrectly corrected her. She said she just left it. I'll make sure to mention to him when I see him that I'll be 29 in July *smh*
