First of all, happy late birthday, Cam! *huuuugs* I hope you had your cake and ate it, too XD /lame
So this weekend has been interesting. Friday I had one of those all-day allergy attacks that had me in sneezing fits and shoving kleenex up my nose. Nice visual, right? It's been wonderful and rainy all weekend -- but it's been bitter sweet. Because Deana's (our roommate) room has been leaking. And when I say leaking, I mean buckets of water. For some reason her window is spewing water into her room whenever the rain starts to downpour. I
think it's because the window frame itself isn't properly draining the water that collects in the frame (the window slides open from side to side, so it rests inside a U-shaped frame. The window slides on the INSIDE, leaving a quarter inch gap of frame on the OUTSIDE that can easily collect water), and when it downpours it can't drain the water fast enough, so it pours inside the house. On Friday night Deana started shouting and when I got up to her room a sheet of water -- literally, it looked like a wall fountain, I'm so not exaggerating -- was pouring from the window and into her room. We've had towels there all weekend and, this time, were managing to keep the carpet from getting anything more than just damp, but we have to keep changing the towels. Last night it started coming down AGAIN around 4:30 am and Deana said the towels were soaked within minutes. We can't, like, put down anything to catch the water because it cascades down the wall at about 1.5 feet wide.
Deana's been talking with our landlady, and she says it's the HOAs fault and THEY need to come and fix it. What *I* think is going to happen is the HOA is going to come in and see that the lock is broken on that window and say THAT'S why it's leaking and that they're not doing anything until we can say the window is still leaking DESPITE the lock. (luckily, we have it in on our move in inspection that the lock was broken when we moved in, so she can't try and plant that on us. I honestly don't trust her not to make us pay to fix up her house when we leave and say it's all our fault...) And then it'll be a problem because *gasp!* Joani is going to have to pay to get the lock fixed.
It needs to get fixed though. Technically it's illegal for her to rent to us knowing there aren't locks on the windows. I just HATE having people in the house. And If I get my job I can't be here.
And speaking of the job... They called Tiara for a reference, but I have no idea if they called the people the REALLY need to talk to for references. *sigh* I'm so afraid I'm gonna loose this job because of my references. Prepare for Emotionally Broken!Adriann if I don't get this job.
In other news we saw He's Just Not That In To You
this weekend and it was very cute. It definitely reaffirmed my lesbian nature when Scarlett Johanssen was being practically thrown across a desk, breasts and ass looking DEVINE. If I were a guy, the crotch in my pants would've been tight, that's all I'm saying XD Seriously though, I LOVE HER BODY. She's not too skinny and has a full chest and hips and just a hint of a feminine tummy. NGH. I want her body, both in my bed and... with my head on it. That's a bit odd. Although while drying Rain!Towels! this weekend I caught a glimpse of my ass in the mirror... and and... it's not a thass!!!
It's definitely been a "thass" for a while -- you know, where thigh and ass are like one being instead of two separate entities -- but the Pilates is doing it's job and my butt looked good and damn near perky! I grabbed my own ass, then went and did some Pilates, LOL! Im starting to have fantasies of going to the beach this summer and looking CUTE. When I think of my weight loss in terms of pounds, it's far less daunting than when I think of it in terms of dress size. Like, thinking I wanna drop a dress size sounds impossible, but thinking about seeing a 160 on the scale seems like it's brushing my finger tips.
I bought myself some new GOOD shampoo last night and decided to look up Shit I Can Do With Long-Ass Hair. Basically, every other week I'm convinced I need to chop it all off, but really I just need to STYLE it. I could have long hair and make it look AWESOME, I just don't
. Then, my dear Scarlett in the movie we watched demonstrated how long can can be so sexy and she had that sexy, wavy, tousled, beachy look. Last night I decided I wanted to try for that look, so at, like, 2am I was putting product in my hair and curling it up to try and achieve said look. ( Collapse )
That said, at least it has SOME kind of body to it @_@ I think what I wanna do is cut it to just above my waist and then add in a couple of layers on the top so I can curl or tousle it. I also want long side bangs. Also, this week, I think I'm gonna soak it in olive oil. It's really damaged and has no shine and I've just stopped caring about it, but I was reading about using olive oil as a sort of hot oil treatment and I wanna give it a try. Any one done this? Some sites say to add a beaten egg to the olive oil... I don't wanna go to the roots, really, I don't even condition my scalp, but from the nape of the neck, down...
This was a ridiculously random post. I need to go grab some lunch.
