25 random facts about lil old me

Feb. 11th, 2009 | 10:55 pm

so this is going around facebook and i'm sure those of you who are on there have noticed. you're just supposed to list 25 random possibly interesting facts about yourself. i love reading everyone's so i figured i'd post it here. maybe this will prompt some folks to do one too!

1. I did customer service at an insurance company for about 7 1/2 years. In the end i could do it with my eyes closed. i would often do other things while talking to customers- emailing, reading, whatever. i would sometimes pluck my eyebrows while on the phone and once i undid the hems of my pants with cuticle scissors because i decided they were too short. i can also carry on a conversation while also listening to someone else on the phone.
2. i hate to wait- for people, traffic, red lights, trains. my lack of patience makes it even more amazing that i lasted in customer service so damn long.
3. i like my pets more than i like most people. i am a total sucker for sad animal stories. i have to be reminded often by my husband that we can not save every animal out there.
4. i cry too often. when i'm sad, mad, happy, whatever. stupid shit has made me cry- movies, books, tv shows, commercials. once an episode of 'doogie howswer' made me cry. i'm not proud of that!
5. i am a goofy bitch. i am rarely serious. if you can make me laugh, i will be your friend for life. and because i'm a goofy bitch i often laugh while crying.
6. despite #5 i dislike comedies. when i watch movies i usually like them sad or scary.
7. stand up comedians and spoken word poetry make me uncomfortable.
8. i like books more than i like tv. but i hate silence so sometimes i'll just turn on the tv for background noise.
9. one of my thumbs is noticeably shorter than the other.
10. i have not had my natural hair color for about 20 years. i'm not even sure what it looks like anymore.
11. sometimes i think i am a 10 year old girl trapped in an adult body. i am obsessed with anything pink and/or glittery, hello kitty, lisa frank and unicorns. i still buy 'lip smackers' lipgloss usually bubble gum flavored.
12. i can pick things up with my toes.
13. i never wear jeans. i haven't owned a pair in probably over 10 years.
14. i probably own more black clothes than one person should. i actually feel uncomfortable if i dont have at least something black on. i also don't have anything white. not even socks and/or underwear. it makes laundry easy!!
15. babies freak me the hell out! i have never actually held a baby.
16. when i decide i want something i become obsessed. i could be at home in pjs and i'll get dressed to run to the store to buy something if i 'need' it.
17. i love to shop for pretty much anything other than clothes. when i do buy clothes i never try them on. that leads to sometimes returning things, but i f'ing hate trying shit on.
18. i swear like a sailor. but when i type things like "a-hole" or "f-ing" i am not censoring, i really mean it like that.
19. i pick scabs and pop zits. even i think this is gross but i still do it.
20. i talk alot. a coworker once said about me "even laryngitis won't shut her up" i also tend to talk (and laugh) loud. like it's possible that i was born without an "inside voice"
21. sometimes i'm annoyed by the sound of my own voice. (but i still don't shut up)
22. i have a terrible memory- i forget names, dates, what i walked into a room for. yet, i remember way too much useless/pop culture information.
23. most days i drink more than 100 ounces of water. i am also totally addicted to diet pepsi and drink of ton of it. i know it's bad for me and i don't care.
24. i never wear makeup. i don't even know how to apply eye makeup. seriously, my husband after spending so many years in the goth scene can apply eyeliner better than me.
25. i have the shortest attention span. there is proof in all the unfinished books, movies, crafts, etc around our apartment. once while in my bosses office discussing something work related i actually interrupted him because someone was walking a dog in the parking lot. i excitedly said 'oooohhh, pup-pup!' (this could also fall under #11)

Mildred Loving

May. 6th, 2008 | 10:21 pm

Who is Mildred Loving you ask? Now as someone who should have known about her before her passing, sadly I did not. She was one half of the couple involved in landmark civil rights case known as Loving v. Virgina. She was an African American woman who, with her white husband fought the state of VA all the way to the US supreme court for the right to be legally married. Because of this case the laws against interracial marriages were overturned in 16 states. (you can read more about it here- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loving_v._Virginia)

The anniversary of the day the ruling was decided, June 12, is known as "Loving Day" (you can read about that at http://www.lovingday.org)
Her husband passed away in 1975. She passed away this week at her home in Virginia, She was 68 years old.

I thank her and her husband because if it wasn't for them, i might not have been able to marry my wonderful husband.
Rip Mrs. Loving

a real update....

music: silence

nah, real updates are for suckahs. i'm too busy learning my pirate name!!!!
that and that i can't sleep and i swear i've run out of things to do online..

My pirate name is:

Bloody Jenny Rackham

Every pirate lives for something different. For some, it's the open sea. For others (the masochists), it's the food. For you, it's definitely the fighting. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

mood: postful

Knicol tagged me and had doubts that i would do it.. so, i had to.
even if it took me forever to remember to finish it.
i tag- netzilla, baji, gothicfairy (i know i didn't spell that right but damnit, you know who you are!!!) and mike (if he's even paying attention to livejournal anymore) or anyone who is bored like me right now.

Four jobs you have had in your life:
1. customer service rep.
2. switchboard operator
3. telemarketer (yes, i know, i am the devil)
4. newspaper truck driver. oh yeah. fun times.

Four Movies you could watch over and over:
1. silence of the lambs
2. se7en
3. mirrormask (it's so lovely, everyone needs to check it out)
4. tie- in america or good will hunting. they both make me cry, but i like sad bastards movies sometimes.

Four Places you have lived:
1. cleveland, oh

when the shit hits the fan...

mood: clean

or more accuratley, hits the floor and drips through the downstairs fan on your sisters head. oops.
but, more on that later i think.
i haven't posted in forever. i am a slacker. i have ideas and i have things to say damnit. but then i just get sleepy or slightly uninterested in my own BS.
but, this past weekend was so good that i figured it deserved a post all it's own. (hopefully i can stay awake long enough to finish even the short version)
friday night we all hung out over mike and will's house. the best part of the night was that jeanette (or the other jeanette as i still sometimes refer to her as) got silly drunk and she is not usually prone to do that. so, that alone made for an entertaining evening.

saturday was Peelander-z at the beachland. now, if you have no heard of this band, i suggest you check them out. they bill themselves as "japanese action comic punk" and it was well worth the $8 our broke asses had to scrounge up to get tickets!! worth more even. they sing crazy japanese punk songs, bring people on stage to participate and they even do human bowling. fun times, my friends, fun times.
i have pics that i will either post here or more likely in my photo blog. but that will probably have to wait till tomorrow.

sunday started off good with a pizza/facial party in my sister's apartment downstairs. jeanette came over and gave us all MK facials and a free gift and we hopefully helped her meet her goal to get the "mystery ride" i hope so because i'm dying to know what the hell the mystery ride is allabout!!!!
too bad sunday ended with the previously mentioned bathroom mishap....but, that didn't put too much of a damper on the whole weekend. and now the bathroom is fixed and cleaner (and also more germ free than it will ever be again i'm sure) so it's all good.

my sister also got a new roommate. zak. he's just as sarcastic as the rest of us so i think he'll fit in just fine. too bad his first weekend here consisited of a bunch of chicks in the dining room talking about make up and such and dirty toilet water pouring into his bathroom. at that point all i could say was, welcome home. we were invited to hang out down there tonight to eat veggie burgers and play 'guitar hero' so i must be all good.

hope everyone is well.

i've got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one...
