|12:28 am - I was hiding under your porch because I love you.|
I saw Up. It was wonderful, and I laughed and cried my way through it. :)
I'm starting to get nervous about my work situation. We keep hearing rumblings from upper management corporate types about shutting down stores and whatnot, and most people think it's just empty threats to squeeze more profit out of us (not that there's a recession on, or anything...), but it worries me. Where would I find another job that would fit my scheduling and school needs? I like my job. I get to work with my hands and not with my brain. It's a nice break from grad school. And my co-workers are the best. I really hope they don't end up closing my store...
My friends list on LJ seems to have dwindled. I haven't seen lots of people for a while. Where the heck is thepresidentrix? I usually can't get her to slow down and breathe in between sentences, and now she's not here anymore. Hmm. I mean, she's my sister, so if anyone knows where she is, it would be me. I mean, I know where she is right now, but where online? No idea. She's a crazy one, my sis. :)
I wish I could take a trip somewhere really cool, like the UK or New Zealand. If only I were rich. :)
I'm dead tired. I wonder what it feels like to be rested or refreshed or not exhausted, like all those people on the sleep aid commercials seem to be. I don't think I've had a restful sleep since I was a very small child, regardless of how many hours it lasts. I have these fun permanent dark circles under my eyes that actually purple when you look at them up close. Purple! And when things get really bad, they start to look almost dark blue. Crazy.
Hey, if anyone wants to follow me on Twitter, my username is ellen[underscore]g. I like Twitter. I'm on it all the time. I even had a conversation with Clare Kramer once. :D
Speaking of tired, I need to go to bed now. Goodnight. :)
Current Mood: good
I hope your store doesn't get closed too - you seem so content there.
I suppose it is cool here compared with SoCal - it's supposed to be 16 C here today, but it's sunny so feels a lot warmer. I was walking the dogs for three miles early this morning and my nose got sunburned - it surprised me with it being so early in the day.
If you can find the airfare, you can always stay with me you know...
Hey, it's me! I'm back now, I think! I've been fantasizing about running away to Scotland or elsewise the UK, too, lately, because my friend Heidi is going to get PAID to chaperone a semester in London, and it's NOT FAAAAAIR!!! I WANNA GO! (It's not our current school, it's her old alma mater, but still!)
Did I ever tell you about the dream I had that you were taking a trip to England?
Did you identify heavily with the short about the storm cloud? Because I thought of you when he made the shark and nobody understood him in his gloomtastic-ness.
Are you sure the circles aren't just, like, genetic? 'Cause I have them whether or not I'm well-rested.
