What is it with kids on bikes? There's this one house, where any time I am walking my dog and the kids are out, they stalk us on their bikes- running up right behind Roxie, doing laps around us, throwing meanie faces at us. Like what the hell? Are they trying to be territorial or something?

I wish I could not walk past this house, but it's a bit impossible. I've no idea what time to walk without running into at least one kid... they're always out. It's just creepy and I don't even like kids in the first place. I'm kinda scared to talk to the parents though, because they seem nice enough and I don't want to have any trouble in such a tiny community.

So I get in my car to go to work today and discover this.



Yep. Car broken into. Brand new stereo that my dad just installed 2 DAYS AGO stolen. My ipod and GPS were also taken but I'm less upset about those because my phone can do the same stuff.

But they left me 2 bottles of unopened hair dye so I've got that going for me!!

I'm just upset, maybe more at myself? Like if I would have just removed the face plate this probably never would have happened because that would equal a useless stereo. But I apparently have a hard time accepting that this city sucks these days and there's waaaayyy more crime than there used to be, and I just have to be paranoid and cautious about everything I guess.

I just can't understand why people like this even exist on our planet.

The irony of it all? The ONLY reason I got a new stereo was so I could listen to my ipod in my car. And now I don't have a radio OR an ipod. Why does the universe hate me.

My favorite Berner, that I've known for years, died of cancer on Saturday. ;(

It does, actually. I get homesick for PA, maybe once every couple months? And then I get over it.


I mean...you'll probably always miss me, because I'm so awesome, but the rest will get better

I had lots of sad today.

Work was dumb.

I got home and checked Rasza's thousand dollar mouth to find that less than one week post extraction, one side is looking not-so-great. He'd been getting out of crate and out of cone time while I was home (and one time when I was gone for a bit) because he was being good. Today he showed me he can rub his face WITH his cone on even. I need to call the vet tomorrow to see if she wants to see him. The left side looks GREAT! The right side is puffy and inflamed around the sutures.

Rascal stole a piece of freeze dried beef liver. He's intolerant to beef, he vomits within minutes. So then he was vomiting everywhere and I was trying to usher him onto a non-carpeted part of my apartment and that didn't go well.

And then I missed my dog a whole lot. Because I would cuddle with him right now but I can't. And while Gabby is a fabulous dog, a cuddler she is not.

So Lauren and I went to McDonalds for ICE CREAMS. And it's a little better now.

My boss just told me that if things don't start "picking up" I'm going to be moved to 1 day a week. I just bought a car. I see this working out well.

However, the thing that makes me really mad is the reason I don't have a lot of work is BECAUSE YOU ARE GIVING IT TO SOMEONE ELSE TO DO. My job responsibilities are given to a volunteer... the same volunteer that my boss told me a couple months ago was most likely going to take my position whenever I leave.

What really sucks though is the fact that I can't get a Technician position until I get registered (at the very minimum), usually the preference is certified. I've applied for registration and they are working on my application, but it takes time and will probably be at least another couple of weeks.

The semi-good news: I did find a FT receptionist job that I'm probably going to apply to. I'm really, honestly hoping I can get this job! It's good pay and I won't have to work weekends.




I just want to go back to bed.

Must be jackass vs Civic month. So sorry. The guy who stole mine left me a pair of flip flops in the car after rolling it 5 times. Totally wish real life investigators could find the perp based on small evidence like that like they do in the movies.

A BB gun might make them think twice ... that or a cattle prod. It wasn't a kid but a guy on a bike at the place I used to work at would ride by and yell at Josefina, the first time he did it I was too slow to catch him, and it really startled her. It took her a year for me to get her to stop reacting to bikes and motorcycles. The guy rode by same time every day and we had a dinky BB gun we would use to peg pigeons that would try to roost in our barn, I grabbed it and tole that asshole that the next time he yelled at my dog I would shoot him with it.

He never did it again.

Or, you know, you could act like a civilized human being, and tell the kids that's not acceptable.

No way. I use guns as my first attempt at dealing with people all the time.
