I have a fascination with tragedy

I really do. I hate it but I love it too much to care.

So, they told me in the exact words I've been waiting for that I have the job today. That was exciting. Has anyone reading this (you know, all 3 of you) ever seen The Jerk (w/ Steve Martin)? I'm currently celebrating the job like getting my name in the phone book: "I am somebody!!"

God, I love that movie. I should think about it more often. Ok, just a few quotes from IMDb for posterity. I really wished I owned it.

But I digress.

I finished my painting today. It's uh... lovely. Like a 4th grader painted it for his/her mom. I lack the skillz yo. But my Art Ed roommate says it's fine so I am taking that as the Truth and turning the bitch in. It's hilarious, all black and white with a zebra and siamese cat having a stare down in a jungle- It looks like I puked charcoal and it came out in shapes. Maybe I'll post a picture of it here if I can borrow a digital camera.

Fantastic amount of work has gotten done lately. I'm having problems concentrating on one thing right now, but I'm hoping after this brief caffeine induced *SBS episode, I'll be able to get back to it. Whoa, seriously I just stopped typing to check out the fact that you can tell by the worn keys on my laptop that I'm right handed. Which makes me wonder, is that something that is universal? Or just me. I'm assuming things that would contribute to this would be I push harder with my right hand, the right hand briefly leaves and refinds the keys when I push enter/backspace/whatev, and probably the fact that I use my right hand more means there's more residue from other objects on the finger tips of that hand. This would have some affect on the plastic keys, right? Am I just talking crazy here or could this be a valid theory?

OMG do you see what I mean? I'm not even looking at the screen I'm staring into space with fixed eyes and I don't want to focus on anything but my mind. And I think I've lost it.

Wow- I'm going to go away from the computer now and do something to better mankind until I can focus again. And by bettering mankind I mean taking DVDs back to Blockbuster. You know, livin' that rockstar lifestyle.

**SBS- Saturated Brain Syndrome... when I get to that point where it feels like my brain is a saturated sponge and can't absord one more thing. It makes me innattentive, sluggish,  insane, and really really random. I can sit and stare at something without a visual thought for several minutes. This is not a medical term, but yet another KTKatical term to describe my various unexplained phenomena. Like my memorable bout of  Appalachia in 2006, for instance.

I'm about to get big Karmic slap in the face

So, I win at life yet again today (or until about 8:00pm)

I got the job, I thank you. Or at least I think I did. They never just say, "Hey, kid, you got the job." They are always just  "Hey, come in tomorrow and shadow." But going by the last time that sentence was spoken to me, I'd say I have it.

So then, I had to see a counselor who is a quite adorable old man. I think we all know I have a strange obsession and giggling reaction to adorable old men. So, it was a probably a bit odd for him. He was just so cute! I think he was in his 70's maybe? So, yeah, the meeting was fairly unproductive but I still count it as a plus because I'm weird like that.

I got my Soc. exam back today-- my professor told me she was impressed with my essays and highest score. HOW COOL IS THAT? Maybe not at all, in the traditional James Dean fashion. But to me, who hasn't gotten a compliment from a professor in years, it was pretty damn satisfying.

Then I found out I no longer have to eat toast for every meal since monies are coming my way. (Besides for the job thing)

Then I took another exam that I feel pretty confident about.

So as of 8pm, the Greatest Two Days In a Long Time were still in tact. (Unfortunately at that time I found out I somehow owe the state $288 in taxes. WTF? I'm getting that checked by someone who knows what the hell they're doing!)

So, aside from that costly snafu, I am in quite a cheerful mood. And I hope it'll last through whatever happens tomorrow when I'm sure Karma's going to check its plus/minus list, realize it's made a grave accounting error, and call in my debt.

PS- If aim freaks out my computer one more time, I'm going to shoot it. I'm going to form my pretend-hand-gun, and shoot the bastard until I feel better. Because I found out today it would go against what is generally accepted as common sense to physically punch it. This is why I have friends. To explain these things to me before I my costly lack of any common sense makes itself known ;)

"This ferret ate my baby!!"

So, haven't updated in a while...
Dial up + being home = limited internetting for Kateh.
I was going to update last night but the power went out and there was weirdness. Luckily I saved the entry since I no longer trust LJ. It's behind the cut.

Weellll, I've gotta feed my fish. And then probably I should work. It's cold. I so don't want to. :P
