I just got a glass out of the cupboard and started to pour a glass of strawberry drink into it without realizing I was holding it upside down.

I feel so special right now.

Hey thread, just got back from a party at a friend's house where my younger brother was once again cock-blocked by his own drinking habits, meaning I had to carry him to the car and drive him home rather than have good times with a cute girl that I met there, so I don't feel to sorry for him. Not to make this something worth going in the Relationship thread because I rather think he needs to work out his own problems but I don't think he's actually going to get anywhere with this girl since she's been stringing him along while having a boyfriend that she doesn't seem to be breaking up with, so I'm left with a lovestruck sibling that I don't know how to break the news to, le sigh.

The party was nice for me though, there is a distinct lack of my person in the drunk thread typing illegibly this time around, despite the high volume of alcohol consumed earlier in the night. Does this point towards an early path into alcoholism? I hope not. Anyway, water, then bed.

good luck wishes

Thanks! It's at Target. Target and I don't agree on the whole "homosexual rights" issue, but hopefully we will agree on the "Patrick shouldn't continue losing weight at a discomforting pace" issue. :D

Currently very drunk. Listening to "Somebody That I Used To Know" by Elliott Smith. I've listened to this song more than I care to admit over the last two months. All over the same person. "So if I seem a little out of it, sorry." Story of my life, man. And especially since I met the girl I've had all my drama with during the time I've been listening to this song with such a religious devotion. I feel like such an idiot for investing so much emotionally into another person. Especially when I met them as a complete stranger, and even more because of the fact that I invested so much for so little in return. And even more-er because not a single good thing has come from it, except maybe the realization that I am incapable of being in a relationship. Let alone with somebody just as hopeless as I am.

Best part: knowing that neither of us are as hopeless as I feel like we are, we're just so lacking in hope for ourselves that we submit to whatever the current status quo is. Never aspiring to anything better, never wanting to improve for fear of leaving the other behind and losing them. When really we'd both be better off recognizing the potential each of us has separately before ever pursuing another committed relationship. How can anybody commit to a person who doesn't know what the fuck they want, let alone two people in that very position trying to commit to somebody who is liable to do a complete 180-degree turn at the flip of a lightswitch? It's a recipe for disaster.

I'm learning. Slowly. Agonizingly slowly. God how ashamed I am of it. I'm drunk enough to admit it to you guys now, sober enough to spell it properly, and sad enough to feel like I have nowhere else to talk about it. I really don't know what I'm going to do with myself. I've gone from seriously considering suicide to moments of overwhelming hope for my ability to deal with things better in the future. Scattered between are feelings like I am truly going to make something of myself through all of this, but immediately adjacent are feelings of "Yeah, but how the fuck are you gonna pull it off?" And when I'm sober, it all becomes a jumbled mess again.

God I'm a fucking mess. I desperately want to fix myself, but have no idea how to go about it. And I have no idea what my goals are. Combine it with my overwhelming self-hatred, self-doubt, and inability to cope with new situations, and you've got me in a nutshell.

20 lbs almost overnight when I quit smoking. It was really over the course of a month or two but it was pretty terrible, stretch marks and all.

All told, I gained about 35 pounds over the course of about 2.5 years after I quit.  It wasn't totally dramatic, but I just never stopped gaining.   I kind of assumed it would stop increasing and eventually go back to normal, which is why it took me so long to actually do something about it.  It's all off now, but it took me dramatically changing my diet and starting a serious exercise routine to get rid of it.

Fuck yes! I got my learner's permit today! After years of putting it off! I'm so excited. I was convinced I was gonna fail and do horrible and was freaking out all morning, but I totally did it!

On a related tangent, I've spent the morning amazed by the river of misogyny you get by searching "woman parking" on YouTube. It's not so much the videos as the comments (btw did you know YouTube is full of racist/misogynistic/hombophobic comments? I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you.)

I feel an extra dash of irony whenever I hear people complain about women drivers since my fiancee is the best parker I know.

Yeah, my sister is a really good parallel parker.  She did a much better job teaching me how to do it than my dad.
On the other hand, my mother (born in Taiwan) is the absolute worst driver I have ever been in a car with, so I'm not sure if it's the Asian or woman stereotype coming out here.  Her sister, though, is a very good driver, so maybe my mom just didn't pay attention in Taiwanese driving school.

hey guys guess who lives in vancouver now!
(i do, the answer is me)

i have only been here a day but so far i can tell you that this city is REALLY stupid nice and everything is so beautiful and convenient and friendly and amazing compared to toronto that i am still sort of doubting this is actually real. i can see douglas island from my street! i don't think i am going to miss ontario very much.
right now i am sat in a coffee bar because i don't have internet at my house yet but hopefully that will get sorted soon, until then i guess i will continue to gape in awe and wonder for the next few days. everything is amazing! life rules.

My mom could out park me blind folded. She drove an SUV for years and can handle a boat trailer, so she just laps me in experience on about every level. It's not even like I'm bad at it either, she's just able to park just about anywhere in one smooth pass.

I guess the point I was making in throwing on that last bit was, even if there were a smidgeon of truth to that stereotype it would be appalling how gleefully people jump to agree, but it's not even remotely true.

Holy Bejesus! Our landlord actually came through this time! At 9:00 this morning, we got a brand new refrigerator! It's a hell of a lot smaller than our old one(which was smaller than the previous one, and also came dirty), but man it actually keeps food cold. Our ice cream is solid. Food put in the refrigerator this morning is cold when you take it out! My mind is blown. I forgot what is was like to have an actual working refrigerator.

That reminds me, I really really hope the Chicago Water Authority has its act together and isn't going to cut off my water in the middle of next week. They posted a notice on our door that the landlord needs to pay the water bill, but our landlord is pretty on the ball and I suspect this may be a case of the payment-collecting people not communicating effectively with the water-cutting-off people.

I worked at a utility company last summer, and the payment collecting people/water-cutting-off-people actually communicate very well. In my case, I sent out the final collection notices, checked the next day for payment, and if payment or arrangements to pay hadn't been posted I would then send out the order for disconnection. If that was the case, the customer still had the opportunity to make payment with the field guys (the dudes who cut off the power). It is probably a clerical error. Easily sorted out with a simple phone call.

Man I am thinking of blowing off some people tomorrow. One friend from work is cool, but when she's with her best friend they're always just quoting doctor horrible and saying things and I just do not think that'd be that fun to spend my time hanging out around tomorrow.
We're supposed to go to the beach, then this fair, but turns out we're going to a different beach and it's not a good logistical idea for me to bike to the beach, but I was really looking forwards to biking up to Stanhope in the afternoon, meeting them there, hanging out, then biking back. Right now I just really value independence and do not want to be sitting in this car with these two girls and the friends boyfriend.
I've canceled on my friends' best-friend's birthday to write a zine, and I do not think they will be happy if I poon out on this but I do not feel like spending time with them and really I would be much happier biking by myself.

Y'know I was thinking of them right after I posted that. But it's okay, the first website to do something is never the most successful one anyway. Was Flickr the first photo sharing site? Was YouTube the first video site? Was Facebook the first social networking site? Was Google the first search engine?

I rest my case.

Blog Thread, yesterday I worked for 12 and a half hours straight yesterday. Sunday is probably the busiest day of the week for us, and we normally get a bit stressed by the end of the shift (I worked a double, so I got to be doubly stressed! Woo!) because the actual waitstaff are having to do three things at once because the owner who works is pretty shit. We had an extra person on the floor, though, so we thought it would be ok!

During the day we ran out of:
*Forks
*Spoons for the coffees
*Water glasses and water bottles
*All coffee cups (including the cappuccino cups, latte glasses and hot chocolate/mocha/large latte glasses)

It was really busy, and the normal head chef wasn't working, so the kitchen hand was helping with the food instead of washing dishes. The owner who was working got yelled at by both the chef and the barista/manager within five minutes of each other, and the barista ended up going into the kitchen to wash cups and told him we would have to close the store until we got some. He started washing the cups slowly. She yelled at him again. That was just the morning!

In the afternoon, the other owner took two hours to write the roster, while having a very serious conversation with the kitchen staff (now everyone who works here is telling him they need to hire more people, including the kitchen), so the girl behind the bar had to do everything while I looked after the floor and he... ate curry? I am not sure. It wasn't too busy, but because she was stressing out about trying to do too much at once, as well as family stuff she accidentally knocked things over and the boss looked at her like she was an idiot and wouldn't help her do anything and so on. At one point she looked like she was about to burst into tears and I told her to go have a cigarette and get away from him. While we were cleaning behind the bar he seemed annoyed that I hadn't given customers cutlery (that is because I had taken their order then cut the cakes they wanted while in the middle of cleaning. I didn't have a chance to just wander out and give them forks). We were closed and a customer asked if we had a certain cake, which we didn't have in the fridge. The owner went and found a whole one in the cool room, while the customer paid his bill, then asked us if the guy wanted a slice. He then proceeded to just leave the cake in its box on the bar, in the way.

After all that I got to clean to front of the cafe! And the bathroom! And bring all the tables in from out the front! The other girl's girlfriend came to visit and take her home, and the girlfriend helped me clean more than the boss.  By the end of the night both of us were just shaking with anger and stress.

Guys I recorded a cover of another Elliott Smith song yesterday. Complete with backing vocals.

The mic hiss and the lack of a third harmony part pisses me off and it is the reason I am making this my first toy purchase after I get a job. It has XLR inputs! Two of them! So if I got a second mic and stand I could record guitar and vocals simultaneously. I can also have one guitar track and *7* vocal tracks instead of the 3 vocal tracks I have now. I'd bounce tracks in order to record the other harmony parts, but I suck at getting the levels right, so I want this bitch reeeeeal bad.

I got my eyes checked today by a dude who talked to me like he was Dora the Explorer and I was a 5 year old who actually likes that show. Nice guy, but yes, seriously, yes I know about eye health. (CAN YOU SPELL EYE HEALTH?) I've had glasses since 3rd grade, you'd think I'd have learned something in all those years about my own eyeballs. Supposedly he did not talk that way to my mother, who also got her eyes checked today, and she found this funny. Whatevs. And I had my pupils dilated for the exam and now I have a massive headache, but the good thing is I was able to order new glasses, so yay!

I got my eyes checked today too!
In the year I have been sitting at a computer full-time, my eyes have gotten ten percent worser!
I am getting contacts tomorrow.

I got my eyes checked yesterday!  I hate that glaucoma test where they shoot a puff of air into your eye.  My vision has been the same for the past 3 years, but I decided to buy a new pair of glasses because these frames I have now are really wearing down.   and In 7 days my new glasses should be in for me to pick up. 

and in 10 days I go back to college.

and today I was food shopping and I found a big box of dunkaroos and bought them on an impulse.  Oh the nostalgia and memories going back to kindergarten

My optometerist did not treat me like a child, I assume this is because it is a big city eye centre and they don't get many children. The old one I went to in Newcastle was the same company and had boxes of toys and things, but this one just had a newspaper and a Famous! magazine from February.

What I found funny was that he actually spoke to me like an adult and calmly stated something about the astigmatism in my right eye. It was after a little bit of internal panic that I realised when I first got glasses in primary school, my optometerist called it my 'oval shaped eyeball' and never actually said what the condition was.

I really should get my eyes checked again. I definitely need a stronger prescription. I know that because if I put my girlfriend's glasses over my own I can actually see things clearly farther away.

I hung out with Dovey twice. Both times were fucking rad. Moral of the story: hang the fuck out with Dovey.

I get my first cat scan tomorrow. Everyone keeps telling me that I'm not going to feel well after. I don't know what that means.
