It still has the same effect - too much, not enough, still a zombie. I'm nursing a cup of french espresso roast coffee in hopes that the possibility of extra caffeine will wake me up.

I think Bryan's expecting me to microwave breakfast. I dunno. He's sitting at the other side of the kitchen table, looking at his computer all cute and sleepily. I wish I could read what goes on inside his head. I bet you it's something like "lol internet" or something like that, to be honest, but you never know.

I am very frustrated with one of my co-workers. She's a temp, she only comes in three days a week, and when I went to go do her morning duties since she wasn't here, I noticed that not only had she not checked the phone messages since last Thursday (!!), she also did absolutely nothing on Monday. I mean, it felt like I did nothing on Monday, but I actually got a lot of filing and data entry done. Filing just seems like I get nothing done because the actual folders are such a mess, and I keep having to correct the other student assistant's mistakes. It frustrates the everloving crap out of me. But finding out that the temp did nothing, when she actually had work to do? (She had a batch or two of credit cards to run - usually we don't run them unless there's at least 5, and there's 10 sitting in one folder and another folder's got at least 4) And finding voicemails from LAST THURSDAY? Ugh. I'm just a graduate assistant, but if I were higher up, I would say something. But I can't. And it frustrates me.

Anyway. I should find something to eat, or take a shower, or both - not necessarily at the same time. Guh. Do I have to be awake?

Sorry I've dropped off the face of the internets the past few days - Tuesday morning I spent fighting with my damn game for Multimedia Development, and yesterday I went to work out. But it's Thursday, and here I am with a giant coffee in my hand and some Lady GaGa downloading. I finally gave up and figured, what the hell, her songs get stuck in my head enough as it is, why the hell not just get her albums?

Anyway, I'm absolutely exhausted. I've been running around constantly the past few days. Monday we drove to Massena to go get some fishies for my late birthday present. One came home dead, so last night we returned it and got two more. My house is now a friggin aquarium. There are more fish here than people. Do I have to make tags for all my fishykids? Artemis has her own tag. I think Augustus, Metella, and Rufilla would be very sad if I didn't give them tags, yanno? (Oh my lord, Beth, they're fish. They don't care if you have tags. Drink your coffee.) I've noticed they all have their own personalities, too. Artemis is just Artemis, being cute and silly and sometimes doing ridiculous stuff, like sleeping in the handle of the Greek vase in her tank. Gus is calm, cool, collected, and loves to come to the glass when I talk. He's a very social fish. He's also one of the most spoiled male bettas I've ever seen, he's got five gallons all to himself! (Then again, right now Artemis has 20 gallons to herself. XD) Rufilla is a little smaller, and Metella was picking on her in the bag on the way home, and she reminds me of a line that her namesake had in my Cambridge Latin 2 book - "You don't understand! You don't care!" Nobody understands what it's like to be a tiny blue betta, heheh. Metella's also named after a Cambridge Latin character, from book 1 - she acts like she's the boss, and Metella in the books was the lady of the household, so there we go.

Oh my lord I am explaining the reasoning behind what I named my fish and their personalities. I am a crazy fish lady.

Anyway, two days of babysitting left and then it's the weekend. I had Tyler and Brittany yesterday, since she was sick. I felt so bad for her, she looked really out of it and miserable. Hope she's feeling better today.

Can I go back to bed?

I've just been so energyless this week. The only thing that's keeping me going is copious amounts of coffee. Mmm, coffee.

At least I have a break before Web Development tonight, hopefully. (Knowing my luck, Brenda won't get home until closer to five, and I'll only have an hour and a half until class to just sit and be mindless) I have so much stuff that needs doing around the apartment, but the past few mornings I've been downright braindead. I haven't really wanted to do much of anything. The living room is a wreck, the kitchen is a wreck, there's a giant nasty dirty fish tank in the middle of my bathroom... yeah. I need a day to sleep in, take a nap, and just relax. Part of me is really hoping Brenda will call in a few minutes saying "oh, there's an opening at daycare for the afternoon! we don't need you today!" Oh, that'd be lovely. It'd be hell on my paycheck, but I've just been so dead lately.

In other news, I'm going to do some reading up on Buddhism. I've always been fascinated by different religions, and deep down inside there's a part of me that hopes I find one that fits me someday. I bought two books on Buddhism off Amazon as an early birthday present to myself (9 days until my birthday! O_o), and hopefully I'll find them interesting.

*zones out for a few moments, then snaps back to attention* Oh geez. I need more coffee. I think I'll finish this entry up before I start gibbering nonsensically.

Seriously, it's SNOWING outside right now. The weight of the snow collapsed my tent. And is putting a damper on my plans to take Tyler outside for an "expedition". Gaaar. I hate you, Mother Nature. It's too close to my birthday for it to snow!

Yesterday was spent alternately cleaning a fish tank and organizing the living room. I had the day off from babysitting (thank god), so I managed to make a little dent in the mess. Tonight I've got class, though, and I'm pretty sure that when 7 pm rolls around I'm just going to hurry back home, set myself in front of the computer, and mutter about how nasty the weather is.

Oh, I'm jumping on the bandwagon a day late here, but Three Weeks For Dreamwidth! Going to post every day for three weeks, because I love Dreamwidth. I may buy a Dreamwidth coffee mug. I love coffee. I need to drink more coffee. It's too early in the morning.

Hello everyone! :D

I'm down on Long Island with Bryan and his family. I hadn't been here in a year, and it's nice to see that not much has changed. The dog remembered me (and didn't eat me!), and everything's good.

We went shopping yesterday and today. Yesterday I went a little crazy and bought all sorts of pretty things - I got a new pair of shoes, two pairs of socks (one with an argyle print and hearts on it, the other with a coffee cup print), an Alice doll from the Disney store (she's so soft and cuddly), a Tinkerbell metal water bottle, some hair bows, and a new wallet. Today I bought some underwear (how exciting) and Bryan repaid some of his debt to me by buying me this OMG AMAZING Keurig Mini one cup coffee maker. I've been wanting one for ages, and now I have one, and it matches our mixer, haha. (It's a pretty red color.) We're going to be awash in K-Cups when we get home - they had a special deal where if you register your coffee maker online and bought two large boxes of K-Cups, you can get two boxes free. So I took advantage of that. We're going to have a million of the little things shortly after we get back from Long Island. I don't think I'm going to buy any more coffee makers ever again, haha.

I think I might be becoming slightly obsessive-compulsive about things. Weird stuff. I mean, I've always been a little weird about my security blankets, like how I hate it when people sit on them and have to tell them to get off my blanket, or if they fall in a dusty hole and get gross I have to wash them, or when I get really iffy about people touching my stuff. (I am very territorial, to the point where it irritates me if someone starts going through my stuff without my permission. Somehow, Bryan hasn't aroused that irritation yet - I think he understands about me being territorial and is nice like that.) Now, I have a new weirdness! Apparently when I eat candy or pretzel rods or anything like that which isn't pre-packaged and pre-proportioned, I have to eat an even number of said item. I don't know why. I don't care what the serving size is. I have to eat an even number. I get iffy if I don't. So what if the serving size for pretzel rods is 7? I will only take and eat six.

Anyhow, Brentwood is nice. It's very nice to get out of the north country. There's actually stuff to do here! :D

Bryan has his head resting on my knee. He's watching me type. OMG WATCHING ME TYPE.

I SEE WHAT YOU DO THERE [personal profile] nomnomchuupie.

(yeah, I'm a little silly tonight)

Also, the wedding date? May need to be changed. Cue me trying not to rip my hair out. AAAGH.
purpleparadox: (so tired)
Oh lord, getting to sleep last night took FOREVER. Every little bump I heard from the upstairs apartments or the heater jolted me out of sleep. Every thought of some little critter landing on the Mint Chocolate Chip Mobile and setting the alarm off made me freak. I was even convinced I'd left the stove burners on, and got up to make sure I'd turned the stove off. (That's not a new worry for me - I used to get up in the middle of the night when I was a kid and check to make sure Mom'd turned the burners off, because I was afraid the house would burn down) I swear, if my anxiety gets to me again tonight, I may have to take sleeping pills. It was that annoying.

I made it through night one safely, thank God. I think I needed to calm down, and while sometimes I could pretend that Bunzilla was Bryan, Bunzilla's got a much bigger ass than Bry does. (I should post a picture of Bunzilla for all my Dreamwidth friends, so they can see him. He's awesome.) At least I had something to cuddle, something to occupy the other side of the bed, because aside from one night where I got mad at Bryan and slept on the couch, this is the first time in a year I've slept alone for any length of time.

I think this is going to take some getting used to.

Ah well. I have coffee, and an egg bagel that came all the way from Long Island so I could eat it, and I have a list of things to do today, so I won't have any down points while the sun is up, that's for sure. :)
