I can't find the USB cord for my iPod. This is making me very, very unhappy. I have uploaded CDs, made a lot of changes to iTunes, and such, and all for naught. Grrr.

Also, I'm tied re: journal name. So, a poll is indeed forthcoming.

ETA: To clarify - for those who thought glitterlust connotated pink sparkles, this user icon was my default for my glitterlust journal. (The name used to change colors. It doesn't anymore. That makes me sad.) - (or maybe it does - i just noticed none of my animations seem to be working right now.)

Fucking Hell.

Listening to:: Lover, You Should've Come Over

My Juliet - You've always been so generous with material gifts, to the point where I've been embarrassed by my feeble attempts at reprocicity, but in truth the best gifts have no price. The most treasured item you have ever give me, in our long (lord, has it been so long? Nearing four or more years now, I think) history, has been a song.

Jeff Buckley was a God. A fucking God.

I can't begin to count the number of times I've played, replayed, obsessed over this song.

I have a rather large .png image I need to convert to .jpeg. I want to use it as my header image, but because of its size, Photobucket resizes it to something teeny-tiny and unusable. I don't have access to Photoshop right now. Is there anyone I can email it to that would like to convert it for me and send it back? Pretty please?

Also, dear LJ Fairy, thank you for the v. pretty virtual flower. :-)

I'm CERTAIN someone is willing to give me money to go to school to get a degree in a computer science field. How to find them is beyond me. Searching for grants is... headache-inducing, to say the least.

This whole 'working' thing has left me no time to properly read or comment on LJ. I will try to catch up tomorrow.

The whole potty training thing? Not going so well. He won't go near the potty, won't wear the training pants or the pull-ups. And he was doing so well before. All the books say not to push it, to back off if he resists. I suppose he'll come around - eventually.

da da da dum!

We have solved the mystery behind why my 4Runner won't start! Ready for it?

The Engine, She is Deaded! Joy. New Engine? So. Not. Gonna. Happen. So, explain to me, please, someone who is wiser than me, how two people manage to work and exist, while living in a one-car household? How do you shuffle to and from two jobs, and get a child to and from daycare, with one car? Easy answer: You don't! (Public transpo = non-existent.)

Ain't got no quarrels with God

Listening to:: thompson twins

the rainwater drips through the crack in the ceiling...

it is now 1:30am. I took sleeping meds at 10. Fuck me. Wake up in five hours.

If you were here, I could deceive you. If you were here, you would believe. Would you suspect my emotions wandering; do not want a part of this anymore...

Charlotte and I are keeping vigil.

I start working tomorrow. This is a good thing. I need the money. Also, I bought a kickass jacket today. So the paycheck I get on Monday will pay for it. (They pay twice a month, current.)

I'm going to lay out all my outfits for the whole week today, and do my laundry. And possibly dye my hair. Also, call in my Lamictal prescription so I don't go nutso mid-week. (That would be possibly bad?)

I was in Target today (where I bought the aforementioned kickass jacket for the extraspecialbargainprice of only $29.99) and I saw and coveted the latest edition of Lucky magazine, but I did not buy it, because I do not have to buy it anymore (or, you know, swipe it from the waiting room of my psychiatrist's office) because my Lis bought me a gift subscription because she is sunshine (bright as yellow).

The Bonaparte used the potty today, of his own accord. Mommy-types out there know what a big deal this is.

Other highlights of my day include braiding my lucky bamboo plant up another notch (exciting stuff) and trying so hard to keep up with the VM4 thread that I don't have any time to post, even if I had something worth saying (which I don't). Now I'm going to go do more laundry, and try to think of something interesting to say so I can email my friends so they will know I still love them and won't think I'm ignoring them (that means you, Juliet.)

You know, when I'm feeling like no one gives a crap about me...

I remember. I remember that there are bright shining stars in my life.

I do not wish to be a rose,
I do not wish to be pale pink
but flower scarlet, flower gold
and have no thorns to distance me
and be bright, bright, bright
bright as yellow;
warm as yellow.

It always makes me think of her.

I am so lucky.

This post/meme is disgusting. Not at all surprising, as tiggz noted, but disgusting nontheless. The comments are malicious. Especially as they trash-talk friends of mine, something I never react well to. Here is my response.


eta: It went away. Which is a good thing. HereCollapse )


It got uglier after that. I got called a whiny bitch. A fucking retard. Various other epithets. I don't care, I knew there would be a backlash. I just hate that fandom has degenerated into name-calling junior-high cat-fighting.

My iPod battery is dead. Dammit.

Also, my new icon is pretty.

I took my sleeping meds (klonopin and trazodone), but as usual, I'm fighting sleep. It's something I've done since I was five. No matter how tired I am, no matter if it feels as though there is sand behind my eyelids - no matter how they ache - I don't want to close them. I don't want to give in to slumber.

I love these hours late at night, early in the new day, when everyone else is sleeping soundly, breathing regularly, sometimes sighing softly. I like listening to Cary sleep beside me, to Vinnie mumbling over the baby monitor. Sometimes he calls for me, sometimes he talks to his teddy bear, without waking up. The tv drones inanely in the background, and I surf the 'net mindlessly, anything to keep myself awake. I know the morning will be a bitch - four or five hours is never no not ever enough. I can trace the origins of my fear of sleep but knowing doesn't help me overcome it. It's only nighttime sleep I loathe - like a vampire, I could blissfully slumber the day away.

I lied when I said I made no resolutions. I resolved not to miss people. People who shut me out, who simply disappeared. I have no resolve, apparently. I still miss them. I still feel abandoned, betrayed. Angry. Bereft.

I feel as though, slowly, the words are returning to me. It's still not as though I have anything to say, but if I did, perhaps I could find the words. It's been a while since I could say that. I have been feeling, for a couple of months, as though a stranger were inhabiting my body. It hasn't been me - surely it hasn't been me, feeling that way, saying those foreign things. I am trying to reclaim my own spirit. Only time will tell if I am succeeding.

Cover Letter

Some of the formatting was lost, as I c/p directly from Word. Feedback/critique welcome.

Okay, I just sent out my resume for about six job listings. But the one I really truly want is the Admin. Asst. position for the Cummer Gallery. It's a museum/gardens in Jax on the river, and it's our FAVORITE place to go in the city. The art collection is impressive, the gardens are beautiful, it's in our favorite part of town, and it's just PERFECT. The listing says they want someone with an associate's degree, which I do not have. HOWEVER, I have so much experience, it's ridiculous. The position is just for an Admin Asst., while I have been an Office Manager/Administrator for years. I have mundo qualifications.

They want resumes mailed to them, with salary requirements, by the end of the month. I'm assuming they'll probably be reviewed by a board of directors. My plan is to write a truly kick-ass cover letter to ensure I get considered. Should I rave about the Gallery and the Gardens, and my appreciation of it, as well as my considerable experience? How I am truly THE PERFECT FIT for the job? I have never written a cover letter. They intimidate me. They also want salary requirements. I have no idea what to ask for. I'm thinking of just throwing $11 - $15/hr, commensurate with the responsibilities of the position. I have no idea what the going rate is for an admisitrative assistant.

So, um... yeah. Who wants to write my cover letter for me?

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say HUMAN RESOURCES ANAL is a bad abbreviation for a job listing.

Then there's this gem: 'Area Sales Come On People This is ridiculous! Week after week I run ads for different departments in my organization & get limited response.'

Gee, I can't understand either. You've obviously great at writing employment listings. People should be chomping at the bit to work for you.
