Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] abigail89 !!!! 

May your day be filled with unmeasurable happiness! 

BTW, if you haven't read what D wrote about the State of the Union, you're missing out.  Love is love. 


I have had a great week, so far.  On Sunday, we went to Tampa to see Wicked.  (Ate at Johnny Carino's before the show...SOGOODOMG.)  The show was pretty good.  I didn't know anything about it before I saw it.  I kind of wish I had at least listened to the soundtrack first, because the guy mixing the mics didn't do a great job.  That, and I'm losing my high end hearing.  But, visually stunning.  Lighting and costumes were awesome.  I was a little disappointed in the story because it felt a little rushed to me.  There were several things that weren't explained well, IMHO.  On the whole, great way to spend an afternoon.  After the show we went to International Plaza, but it being Sunday, it closed at 6, so we didn't get to see a whole lot.  I wasn't that disappointed.  PF Chang's had an hour wait, so we decided to run to check out the Hard Rock Casino.  Nothing too special (apart from actually having a casino an hour away), so we came home and crashed.  Slept next to a pretty girl.  Life is good.

Monday, Matt and I went to Whole Foods.  I was complaining on the way that I really didn't know my way around North of the Florida Mall, so we took some side streets, stopped at some antique shops (could've spent at least a grand, omg), lollygagged around and finally made it to WF.  It is a pretty small store.  I had never been to one.  Matt was underwhelmed (he said it was about half the size of his back home.  It was okay.  Very nice produce.  I bought $20 worth of tea.  Stopped on the way back at Home Depot because Matt's got a wild hair to redo two of the rooms and wanted to price out some stuff and I needed a blackout blind for my window.  We were supposed to hang my new celing fan, but we really couldn't move, so...I went to see Brokeback Mountain with Jen.  I'm kind of meh about it.  It was good, but I don't know if it was worth all the hype.  I love Ang Lee...and it was very him.  But, I don't really need to see it again.

Matt got the wireless internet working again, so I have internet on the dinosaur.  I thought if I could get my sound card working, I really didn't need to get a new one until next year.  But woe, either the sound card is inop or my computer is just crap because it won't recognize the software.  I did get the AOL MacAfee virus software downloaded and installed, AFTER 14 HOURS.  All this happened yesterday around a lovely trip to the eye doctor.  I always feel like I'm taking a very important test during the "which is better, #1 or #2" bit of the exam.  My doctor doesn't help.  Oh well.  He told me that hopefully my vision stops getting worse soon, because Acuvue only makes up to a 12.  Thanks, Doc.  So I had my eyes dilated, and didn't really feel like going to Publix, so I came home and crashed out.  Watched some Season 1 SeaQuest and made a morning mix CD of peppy songs that I'm sure would be totally embarrassing, but I don't care (if anyone wants some peppy music, let me know).  Jen came over and we watched the BSG mini...I think I may have hooked her. YAY!


So today, last day of mini-vacation (woe), I'm getting a pedicure, actually going to Publix, going to Epcot to see if I can find a teabox in UK, and going to ASL class.  Jen's meeting me after her classes at Valencia and we're going to watch Illuminations.  Hopefully I'll have the guts to tell her how I feel. 

There should be 4-day weekends every week.

Silent Weekend was SOMUCHFUN!!! I learned a whole lot that hasn't been covered in my regular classes, like classifiers and making one sign bigger or smaller to fit the situation. Although, it is difficult to be silent all weekend...especially without much sleep. I did blurt at total non sequitur out in the middle of one class and everyone was looking at me like, "wtf is your problem?" Yeah. We won't even go into the roommate situation...just know that next year, it'll just be me and Jenn.

Before I go on...I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] rainpuddle13 for the unexpected mail. It totally made my day!Getting stuff in the mail is awesome.

BSG this and that )

Eek...my mom's going to be here in two weeks.

Aahhh...two days off...mmm.....That is all for now.

I'm off to Silent Weekend in Tampa! I'm so excited (even though I haven't been practicing). This will be one of those wake-up calls I need that says "hey, stupid, you need to practice more!" I'll have the Sidekick with me, but probably won't be making posts/comments. I'm sure no one will miss me, seeing as this is my first post in almost a week.

And now, I offer, a condensed rant. In which I gripe about everything that's bugging me right now in as few words as possible:

I hate my job (who the fuck schedules someone in at 3 am after a vacation day?). I hate working in general. My grandfather's back in the hospital. My dad has the emotional capacity of a teaspoon (and is also being a dick). My mom is crazy. Andre won't shut the fuck up. I have to pack and be ready in less than 2 hours. Both my shoulders hurt like mad.

Wow. I thought I had more. Hmm.

Kisses all around.
Yesterday, I was at Barnes & Noble not looking for anything Star Wars related (I swear). I found the book I was looking for and then took a turn around the kids' section, as I am an avid reader of novels for young readers (my maturity level, I'm sure). New Artemis Fowl, not out yet...new Inheritance, not out yet, new Star Wars post-EpIII series not out ye...wha? There it sat, on the shelf, more than a full month early, the first book of "The Last of the Jedi" series. It wasn't a choice, I had to get it. All about Obi-Wan in his post-Anakin angsty goodness. I was a little concerned...would there be potentially massive EpIII spoilers? But, I had to read it, and of course, read it in one sitting this morning. Only two spoilery items, but nothing that comes close to the spoilers I tripped over for EpII, leading to my unfortunate downfall. So sad, so angsty (in the beginning), SO full of memories of Qui-Gon and Siri. But also, an interesting tidbit that could (or not, you know how EU is) reveal something interesting about the end of the film...cut for delicate eyes, even though I don't really think it's that spoilery. )

On a different front, I have presentation for class tonight, so I should probably go practice.

I opened the mailbox and there was a valentine from [livejournal.com profile] abigail89. D...you made my day!

We had so much fun in class tonight. Mostly because 4 of us are "advanced" and we spent the whole time looking up bad words then trying to make each other blush (BTW, penis was the word of the day). So. Much. Fun. If you ever have the opportunity to take a sign language class, take it.

So yesterday was a good day.

I finished Christmas shopping (hooray!)

I saw Candlelight Processional narrated by Marlee Matlin (voiced by her interpreter)...My class got VIP seating, right in front of the other interpreter (Angela...love you too!). It was better than any other Processional I've seen. Just magic. And once Marlee had said goodnight and thanks, she looked over to the deaf section and saw all of us Sign Language clapping and got this great look on her face...(OMG where'd all these deaf folks come from?). When she was walking off stage she gave us the I love you sign. It was just great. Then, Matt and I stayed around and had dinner, shopped and waited for the fireworks because there is a special holiday tag after Illuminations. The tag...wow. Set to "Let there be peace on Earth," it uses more fireworks than the regular show. The finally sent of one shockwave and then a secondary shockwave that was unbelievable.

Anyway, came home and watched the new Blue Collar Comedy Tour movie. LMAO.

And wrapped presents...almost done!!!

I'll stop the rambly...last day of my "vacation" have to go goof off!
I needed them. Juan is being released from the hospital today. He's MUCH better. Matt says he hasn't seen Juan like this (in a good way) for about 3 months. We do realize that he's on some drugs, but sometimes that's what it takes, right?

In other news, yesterday was good. I was getting trained for a new position at work. And yesterday was bad. Next week I am being trained for a different job opportunity. But my scheduler didn't bother to schedule me for it. When I emailed him, he blamed it on me, saying that if he doesn't know what the email is about, he just deletes it. HELLO!!! Whatever. Also, I went to sign up for my Sign Language class and was told it was full. Great. Hopefully, the instructor will let me in. (Hey, it's another $92 for her).

Anyway, more later.

Kisses, kel
