fearless: Sleep (Sleep)
I am getting sick.  I felt like hell this morning when I woke up and by the time I got to work, I felt faint and I could feel a fever coming on, which means I will wake up with a fever tomorrow which is just wonderful since I am working 9 hours tomorrow.  The sudden weather change is partially responsible for it, the Hubby, however is mostly responsible as he is sick and I am sure that is not helping.  >.>

My only salvation is that tomorrow is Thursday which makes it one step closer to Friday and that much closer to the weekend.  It's sad how my life has now amounted to just trying to make it through the week and to my next day off.  I swear they don't tell you how miserable life is when you get older as kids.  They make it seem all shiny and fun, when really it's miserable unless you're rich and have the luxury to travel everywhere and try new things daily.  I was meant to be rich I think.  I have way too much ADD not to be and I am already itching to find something new to preoccupy me.  I wonder what it will be this time.  /sigh

So today when I logged into my hotmail account, I was pleased to discover that I had finally received my invitation to test out Trillian's Astra.  While it was nothing as close or as cool as a Dreamwidth invite, I was still pretty happy because I think that this version is so much better then their current version, especially given that the file transfer actually works!  Plus it's all shiny and shiny things tend to occupy me for longer periods of time.  Don't ask me why because I wouldn't be able to tell you.  /smirks  If you however would like an invitation to use Astra, comment with your e-mail and I will send you one.  I only have 2 invites left, so the first two to respond will get it.

In other news I am absolutely amused by the DW bashing found on LJ.  What's even more funny is the fact that they are claiming DW is elitist because they require invite codes.  Have people suddenly forgotten that for a long time LJ had the same set up?  Hell, it was even harder to get an invite from LJ if you didn't know anyone.  You had 2 options if I recall correctly, ask someone for an invite code or buy an account.  At least DW is doing a lottery using OpenID so it's not completely impossible to get an invite if you don't know anyone and don't have the money to buy an account.  It just amuses me how riled up everyone is.  My advice: grow the fuck up.

In terms of communities, I finally managed to get [community profile] shutterbugs up and running and I'm pretty excited about it.  I think it's going to do wonderfully and I think I will learn a lot of the other photographers here on DW.  Speaking of DW, I am really amazed at how many people I've have already met here.  It's shocking but also very exciting.  I think I am going to make a ton of friends here and I am so excited about it.  Well, I am off to bed-- long day tomorrow and I'm exhausted.  /dies

I was sadden to come into work today and see that Dreamwidth had been blocked. I was able to access the site yesterday but apparently our IT department felt that was an inappropriate use of time. What's worse is that Livejournal isn't blocked, but I don't want to browse LJ- I want to view Dreamwidth, damnit! I guess that's probably why they blocked it. Thank G-d for Blackberrys. /grin
fearless: I am absolutely awesome.  Agree or die. (Absolutely Awesome)
Well today proved to be hardly eventful. I have to tell myself that when I think it is a good idea to call out of work in the morning to go with that thought. I don't in the least bit feel guilty as three others felt the exact way I did, but unlike me executed their plan flawlessly. I fail. And not just in a sad way, but in a pathetic, you didn't have the balls to do what needed to be done way. My only salvation is knowing that if I had called out, I would have felt exactly as I did this morning tomorrow and well that's a bit counter productive, no?

I was a bit angry to discover an invoice from our prior apartment in the mail today after we got home. Apparently they are saying we owe them $402.00 USD. Now I wasn't a fool in thinking that we were going to receive our deposit back, because one, the cats tore the shit out of the carpet there, and two we half assed cleaned it when we moved out-- but really $402!? After reviewing the invoice it appears they charged us twice for carpet damage in the same rooms. No, I am not kidding, that is what the invoices read, though the itemized list they give us has one charge as carpet cleaning and the other as carpet replacement, pet damage. If you replaced the carpet would there be any need to clean it?! Yeah that is exactly what I thought. Oh and the kicker? They charged us to paint the walls. The walls which we did not put a SINGLE item on! Hello, how the fuck can you justify 6hrs of painting the walls when there wasn't a single item on them. Touch ups? Yeah, that makes sense, but painting? Um, not necessary, at all. The hubby was also pissed to find that they charged us $95 for a turn over cleaning which they CANNOT charge if they plan on doing it anyway. So least to say, he's going to have a fun time dealing with the charges, as my solution was just to pay the amount because for me it wasn't worth the headache. /shrugs

Other then that minor incident, the day was pretty mellow. I am however working on a photography community called [community profile] shutterbugs , as I had noticed that DW didn't really have them. I am in the process of establishing rules and such for the community and getting the tags set up, after which I will try and pimp the shit out of it to gain more members. Oh also be on the look out for a David Cook ([community profile] davidcookofficial) community, because I noticed DW is lacking that as well. /pout

Eleven Things I Assume You Know About Me... )
fearless: Headdesk (Headdesk)
It would appear that Dreamwidth has officially hooked its claws into me-- as I have spent nearly all day scouring the countless DW communities and friending people who I find intriguing or have some commonalities with me.  I can't say I should be surprised.  I love the entire concept of DW and I really do have to give many thanks to [personal profile] bella for graciously giving me an invite.  I seriously cannot wait until April 30, as I already know of several individuals who have decided to join here.

The one thing that I would really like to see DW add is smilies.  They are my achilles heel and I would not hesitate to purchase a seed account if I know that eventually something like that would go into development.  I am not sure how likely that will be because I am sure not everyone is as smiley obsessed as I am, but it is still a nice thought.

As I was busy scouring DW for new friends and communities, I decided to go on to TicketMaster to see if David Cook had finally announced his tour dates.  I check occasionally and usually am disappointed to find that he is doing some concerts here and there in areas not remotely close to where I am located.  Imagine my surprise to discover that he will be performing at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in California in June.  I seriously almost peed myself.  Then my happiness sunk to depression when I realized what day he is performing (Thursday) and my lack of vacation time.  While I really, really want to go, I also know that I have taken off a lot of days since I first started working at the University and I really don't want to press my luck.  My manager is general very laid back and probably wouldn't have any problems with me taking off-- but at the same time I do not want to push my luck.  So I guess it looks as if I will just have to wait until he tours, whenever in the hell that's going to be. /cry

I am considering starting a message board plug community, but considering the lack of message boards in existence, I have to wonder if it will be a waste.  Maybe instead I will create a quote/photography challenge community, though I am hesitant because without help I don't really have the time for it.  There I go again with the hobbies I want to take up, even with the knowledge that I still have yet to unpack what is left of the boxes since we moved in at the end of March, and also decide on the color schemes for the smaller bedrooms and bathrooms, and then implement them by painting the rooms.

Sometimes I wonder if I should be a spy.  It might help my restlessness if I was always constantly on different assignments, as different personas-- but then again that may bore me to.
