1. You can only answer 'yes' or 'no.'

2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages/comments you and asks. And believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming. Even then, you are allowed to refrain from answering if necessary.

3. It's harder than it looks, but NO explanations! Just don't!

4. A change to the rules - add one of your own at the bottom of the list.

Am I the only one who looked at Yahoo!'s "Trending" space, saw "Fracking," and immediately thought BSG (which I didn't even watch avidly, but I caught enough to catch that word a fair few times)?

Fracking transpires to be the name of an oil and gas company in trouble with the EPA, for the record.

So yay, my tarot box from [ profile] wood_artist arrived today, along with a nice little email from him explaining how to open it!

For those who haven't followed the workings on his LJ, here's what it looks like.

From the inside:


And with my tarot stuff inside:


It's so pretty, and it's purple (my favorite color)!

Thank you so much, C!!!

So yay, between me and college, the paperwork snafus got unfucked, and school started today.

This class is going to kick my ass, but I need an ass kicking, at least of this variety. I'm going to be one busy bee. It's Anatomy and Physiology 1, and it's a LOT of material. My gods, I had no idea there were this many words for body bits.

There's also some chemistry involved in the physiology part, and I never took chemistry. Shit, biology and physics were YEARS ago for me. Yes, I managed to take physics without taking chemistry. Paperwork-type snafu at my high school. I went to take chemistry my sophomore year, and I got sick that year with mono and dropped it, so I was going to take it my junior year, but the sections filled up before they got to my name (my surname starts with P, so it's a ways down the alphabet, and they did sophomores first because it's really a sophomore level class), so they stuck me in physics. By my senior year, I had Steph, so I didn't want the hassle of a lab class, so I never went back and took chemistry. Now I'm kicking myself for not at least taking it in college. I was tempted to but I went the easy route and took biology, which I aced in high school, and aced again in college. I should have bitten the bullet and taken chemistry for non-majors.

Anyway, I re-read chapter one (the introduction and vocabulary) and read chapter two, the chemistry chapter. I also printed up this neat little study guide the professor had available online for chapter two, because she's NOT GOING TO COVER IT in class.

Ye gods, the internet makes school a lot easier. I remember when I started my BA, back in 1993, email was a snazzy supernew thing, and a lot of us only had our school emails. Now everybody's got four email addresses (kidding), and there's this thing called Blackboard, from which we can download a lot of the documentation we need for class. I could have downloaded the syllabus before class ever started, if I'd known.

I have to get a lab manual, which I didn't know I needed when I got my book check from SDC. So now I have to go price it and ask them for another check so I can pick it up.

Anyway, that's all the excitement hereabouts.

I finally went back to the sewing machine and finished the damn chair cushion for Bill. So now he can sit comfortably in his recliner and it doesn't look trashy because there's this big foam rubber pad in the way.

I wasn't sure it was going to turn out right, but it did except the cover is a little larger than the foam rubber pad, but if it were much smaller, I wouldn't have been able to get the cover on the pad.

I have some garb I should finish sewing, but it's not time critical as I'm not going to have the dosh to make any SCA events any time soon, so I'm not too concerned about it. I just need to add some buttonholes but I don't know where the buttonhole foot is, and I'm tired of sewing right now.

Time to chill for the night.

So I've been trying to register for class, and it keeps telling me that I've got a hold on my class registration. I called to find out what the hell was going on and they said that it was because FSCJ hadn't finished evaluating my transcript from CofC, but that it would be done by this week.

I tried to register. The frelling hold is still frakking there!! WTH? And I can't call to find out now what until tomorrow.

Hell's bells!
azdesertrose: (Default) aggravating it can be to get into an education program. I've been trying to enroll at FSCJ (formerly FCCJ) to train for medical billing/coding, which I can do from home and not have to worry about getting up at a certain time every single weekday and being somewhere to work.

I spent two hours up there talking to various people only to find out that the person I really need to talk to left at 3pm today. Grrr.

So, I was working on a cushion cover when I got distracted and sewed into my left index finger. Ouch. I now have about 3/4 of a nail on that finger and two stitches holding my fingertip together. This is made of fail and suck. Typing without my left index finger makes for lots of typos.

Sometimes it's nice to be able to be friends with an ex. Sometimes it's really fucking annoying.

My ex is asking my advice on his relationship with his fiancee, and on how to help parent her kids, like I'm the Oracle of Delphi or something. I have no idea what to tell him, and it's starting to annoy the shit out of me, not to mention aggravate my carpal tunnel syndrome to be chatting this much.

Okay, so she came home last night, and she's feeling much better. Almost back to her normal sassy self. :)

Well, she's feeling better today and might be coming home today. It probably isn't pancreatitis (thank goodness) but who knows WTH it actually is making her so miserable. I'm not sure how much I care so long as she feels better.

Mini-me is in the ER with probable pancreatitis. She just had her gallbladder removed on Monday, and apparently inflammation of the pancreas can happen after gallbladder removal surgery.

Prayers, good thoughts, good wishes, etc. are greatly appreciated.

Mini-me is in the ER right now. She had her gallbladder removed on Monday, and now she's in pain again. Probably pancreatitis, which can happen after gallbladder surgery. Poor kid can't catch a break. Any and all prayers, good thoughts, good wishes, etc. are greatly appreciated.

So on Wednesday (St. Paddy's Day), we'll have the family pics, and I'll show off my new 'do. I'll post the before pic Mini-me took as well, so you can see the difference.

I'm not feeling so hot today. I'm wondering if I'm running a fever; maybe it's just allergies. Allergies can really drag me down, health-wise; it's annoying as fuck.

The container garden is going well. I thinned the cilantro yesterday; hopefully it does okay. It's been growing like gangbusters so hopefully it's healthy enough for the transplantation. We found some more big containers that a neighbor was getting rid of, so I'll probably put some of the cilantro in one of those, and save the rest for my tomatoes once they're ready to be transplanted. Soon enough it will be time for the garden to live outside permanently, except for some of the herb seedlings, which I'm going to baby for a little longer. The big tomato plants are growing well, and the tomato seedlings will soon be ready to be transplanted; Bill bought a bell pepper plant, so we'll have fresh salsa out of the garden this summer. Yum yum!

That's about all the news that's fit to print around here.

We got a family portrait taken yesterday, but I'll get Mini-me to take a snapshot of the new 'do after I take a shower and do something with it.

Anyway, the family portraits are really cute, and given that the last time we had one done, Mini-me hadn't been born yet, it was overdue.

Doing laundry, being pensive, and waiting for a friend to call back and maybe go out for coffee. That's about it from here.
azdesertrose: (Default)
Well, tomorrow I go get my hair cut. I got Mini-me to take a before pic, and I'll have her take an after pic as well, so people can see how ridiculously much hair I have. :)

Today was another nice day, intermittently rainy but otherwise nice. Went for coffee with a friend, still doing laundry (joy), and didn't really do much else.

Pics of hair tomorrow. :)

Just stuff

Hoo boy. I went back to my exercise routine this morning, and I can tell I haven't done it in two weeks. My upper body will probably be talking to me tomorrow about the weight training, but damn it, I like weight training. It's the cardio that is kind of boring.

Another sunny, warm day in Florida, so the plants are outside getting some sunshine and warmth to help them grow.

I made an appointment for my hair cut on Wednesday; not cutting it short, just putting in some layers and probably some long, side-swept bangs to camouflage the fact that I have nine zillion little baby short hairs by my face that won't grow and want to stick out and be annoying.

That's about all the news that's fit to print today.

I spent yesterday afternoon wandering around Lowe's with my stepdad, and then Home Depot. He's building a birdhouse. I got plants and seeds to start my garden, and spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the dirt planting my seeds and transplanting my seedlings. For seedlings, I have a couple of tomato plants, rosemary, thyme, and parsley; for seeds, I have more tomatoes (different variety), sage, cilantro, oregano, and basil. I also have some baby marigolds to keep near my tomato plants to keep the bugs away from my tomatoes. (For some reason, the bugs that like to bother tomato plants really don't like marigolds.) If my tomato seeds give me some good plants, I may need more marigolds to protect my tomatoes.

Assuming everything works the way I want it to, I should have yummy fresh tomatoes and herbs this summer, and I got to play with dirt and seeds like I've been wanting to do for a while. I've wanted an herb garden for years; the tomatoes were mainly to please my mom, who wants home grown tomatoes this summer.

All my plants and seeds are in containers, and right now, since the weather is pleasantly warm and sunny, they're outside getting some sunshine.

Other than that, I'm really quite bored and wishing I had something to do or somewhere to go.

...what breakfast was saying to me this morning.

I discussed briefly with my mother the fact that her father's recipe for scrambled eggs will spoil a person for any other recipe. I thought for years that it was my grandmother's concoction (having quite naturally come to the conclusion that, like most of the things Mom cooks without a recipe, she learned from her mother), but Mom told me some years ago that, no, it was in fact my grandFATHER's recipe. It involves a small amount of shredded or finely diced cheese (I like sharp cheddar best, but that's just a personal preference, you can use any kind of cheese you like) and just a dash of milk. It makes the eggs creamy and delish, and it has ruined me for scrambled eggs unless Mom or I make them.

So for breakfast today I had scrambled eggs per Grandfather Prater's recipe and sourdough bread toasted with butter in a toaster oven so the butter melted into the toast and apple butter on top. Omnomnom!

I'm sure you were all dying to know that.

But seriously, the next time you make scrambled eggs, put maybe a teaspoon and a half of milk and a tablespoon or two of shredded cheese per egg when you beat the eggs before you cook them, and taste the nomminess that results.

Hey y'all. Still alive.

Happy that my computer is up (finally) at my folks' house so I don't have to put up with my stepdad's aggravating Windows machine anymore (Vista, blech).

Working out the bugs in my new theme, so I thought I'd post.

Over the sinus infection, sort of, but it's just the beginning of allergy season here in the (ha) Sunshine State.

And, as you might have noticed, can't sleep.

That is all.
