Here's a novel idea, if you can't fucking find something, instead of making me stop what I'm doing and help you why don't you first try looking? A girl I used to work with called this 'Man Disease'... the ability to stare at something and not realize it is what you are looking for. Both Satchel and the tech were looking for some software and neither could find it so they bothered our administrator in Everett who had to track down a pack slip and track the delivery. MIND YOU, I had found the exact same pack slip and showed it to Satchel who said it wasn't the right one. So the administrator calls me and I confirm that yes, we had it, and walk back to the desk and spend oh... 10 seconds looking before I find it. Fuck a duck. Imcompetence anyone? Not only did they not need to bother our admin at the corporate office as he has his hands full enough already, all they needed to do in the first place was fucking LOOK. ARg.

So my caffeine addiction needs to stop, and I mean now. I have been a stupid ass and not been getting to bed on time this week (12:30 monday night, and after 11 last night) and the mornings have been rough. I bought a coffee on Monday at Starbucks, since I didn't get one last friday (that's my latte day... I can't justify spending 3 bucks a day on coffee... we po' folk have to count our pennies) then yesterday I had 3 cups, and I'm working on cup number 3 right now. I am still drinking a ton of water but I do worry about the extra cals... I use splenda and skim milk, but still.

My grandpa gave me the artificial tree he and my grandma used before grandma passed away a few years ago, and it's been in the back of the blazer for about 2 weeks now. Aaron wants to get it out of there, because it's a bit of a hassle to see over it, but we have no room, and I mean... NO ROOM in storage, and it's still got a bit of tinsel on it that we need to remove before the idiot cats eat it and end up costing me thousands of dollars to have the doc unwind it from their intestines. Tinsel and Curling ribbon... huge health hazards for the cats, but damn tasty apparently. Anyway, back to the point of this boring ass paragraph (my apologies) Aaron and I will be spending some time cleaning out the storage unit on Saturday. I told him 'we both have some choices to make'... we just have too much shit. Too much! I got rid of about half of my shit when we moved in together; he didn't have too much to begin with. Now I would say we each need to reevaluate the rest of the stuff in there. A task I'm NOT looking forward to. But again, the main point of this is that he doesn't want the tree in the car much longer, and since we were going to be putting the tree up next weekend (not this coming one) initially anyway, we may end up putting it up on Sunday... a week before Thanksgiving... GASP!

I have about 2 and a half weeks left of school... I start my last anthropology book today... I only have 2 papers left to write in Sociology... I am giddy with joy. Then I'm off from about the second week in December until Jan. 5th. YAY!

I wasn't going to post anymore pics from the engagement party, but since I have nothing new to post, I'll post some of the ones you haven't seen...

Thor at the bar, bought us a shot of tequila, after someone else did (just who I don't remember but many thanks!) and I lost the ability to point the camera...

oh no, I wasn't hammered at all here, not at all.
