See, this is what happens when one is doing nothing for too long. You get restless, agitated...and then. Oh, boy, and then when the time comes to do stuff, you're all 'I'M DROWINING HEEEREEE'
Woke up early today so Dad could take me to get my (very, very long overdue) blood test.
Dad wasn't home.
until like...after 11.
Then i reminded him about the test, and he's like, "I have a phone interview in 5 minutes, then another one at 1:00. We'll go after."
Hate to tell him labs don't stay open as long as he thinks.
I was half tempted to ride my bike to the lab and do it myself like a big girl.
Then again, 90+ degrees, blood drawn, bike ride...maaybe not so much a good idea.
We're all kinda running around like chickens with our heads cut off, between searching for living accomodations, and me applying to schools. Calling schools, seeing if i can take pre-requisites online.
Hell, i don't even know if i got accepted to LCC.
Once said to soullessginger
that things were like "Being in the hospital when the wife is giving birth. You can't do much...just pace the halls. And wait."
See, i'm not a fan of not..knowing exactly where i stand. It gives me more stress.
Where are we going?
When are we going?
What college am i going to?
Long Island? Queens? Where are we living?
I'm outside, and people are at the pool (my apartment is pretty much adjacent to it. Good for gossip), and this old guy calls to this younger woman, "Hey! Are you coming to my funeral?"
Woman: *totally confused* What?
Old Man: I was just wondering if you were gonna be at my funeral
Woman: Why would i..?
Old Man: I dunno. I thought maybe you'd like to make sure i was really dead or something.
Yeah. Totally random.
Uhm. Right. Two episodes left of SPN. and House. So part of me is like, "God, i hope we start moving/getting busy, because i don't think i could stand not having something to look forward to on Mon/Thurs."
(btw, Pat. You're still a dick for your Cas comment/pic. That was downright satanic. Bastard. I'm stressed and emo, dude)
Speaking of Supernatural, i was like, "Finally, i can read that one book i haven't read yet." But it ended up i did read it. Which was weird.
And i felt sad.
I need to screw my head on straight right now.
Oh, yeah. Things have been really peaceful in the household. Regarding me and Dad. Actually been...enjoyable. Lighter atmosphere.
But the thing i was afraid of happening is happening.
With Dad, you give an inch, and he'll take a mile.
So now that we're on more or less companionable terms, i think he's starting to thing we're BFFs. At first, he treated me like an adult. Now he's starting to get...too buddy buddy. Like, blowing me kisses when we're watching House. Or whispering. "iiii'm gonna getchu. iii''mmm gonna getchu." Which, besides being kinda creepy, is being said like you would to a child.
Now me and mom have to sit down and discuss this with him, and the shit is going to hit the friggin fan. Watch the rare and elusive Davidus Fatherus shatter the illusion of peace.
In other news, tonight my friend Brian is hosting a Blu Ray movie at his place. Gonna watch Iron Man before we see IM2 in theaters next week.
Plus, this Saturday is Salt River Tubing. Thank Somebody. yeah i've also been re-reading Good Omens, tyvm. It's my feel good book
So. Recipe for de-stressing at the moment
Lotsa Jimmy Buffett
Music in general. I swapped my Zune HD for an iPod the other day. Lots more space...no need to be picky about what goes on it or not.
Oooh. YES! Loud people at the pool. That calls for some good gossip.
especially since one of them is a woman who adored my family...until she found out we were Jewish
Right, then. Back to the drawing board, i reckon.
Breathe in, Breathe Out, Move On
(Not that everything else hasn't been totally unrelated, but does anyone know why i can't freaking copy/paste stuff in a LJ Post in Google Chrome? Argh)
