I was 1 month and 1 day old, so I probably slept through it.

7. When the USA celebrated its Bicentennial. (7/4/1976)

I was less than a year old, living in Richmond, VA. No memories.

8. When the first recorded outbreak of Legionnaires Disease was announced. (7/22/1976)

See above.

No memory.

No memory.

17. When Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Jr.. (3/30/1981)

I was 10 years old, a 5th grader in Dallas, TX. Dad came to pick us up from school looking very sad. I asked him what was wrong, and he asked, "They didn't tell you?" He told us. I remember being so shocked, because we'd always watch the launchings on TV. To this day I cannot watch the footage of the explosion.

23. When the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded. (4/26/1987)

I don’t remember this at all.

34. When terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center (9/11/2001)

At work. I had taken off the day b efore because it was my 26th birthday. First I got a call from someone saying they were having trouble getting to the Internet, and they wanted to know something about a fire at the World Trade Center. I tried to get to news websites, but the Internet had slowed to a crawl. About the time that a picture of one of planes hitting on the towers came up, the lady came into my office, grabbed me by the arm, and dragged me into a spare office where a TV was set up. About 10 - 20 minutes later the first tower came down, and I said, "The other won't stay up."

35. When Columbia disintegrated during re-entry over Texas. (2/1/2003)

At home, it was a Saturday morning. I was on Aardwolf, and someone said something about it. I called Mom to tell her.

Color Personality Test Report
========================
For: Jennifer
Gender: female
Test Mode: -two_run-
Report Date: Monday, March 29, 2004 9:27:13 AM

Choosed Color Sequence:
1. Violet 2. Dark Blue 3. Black 4. Gray 5. Blue-Green 6. Brown 7. Orange-Red 8. Bright Yellow
1. Violet 2. Dark Blue 3. Black 4. Gray 5. Blue-Green 6. Brown 7. Orange-Red 8. Bright Yellow

-------------------------------------
Personality Report:

1. DESIRED OBJECTIVES OR BEHAVIOR DICTATED BY DESIRED OBJECTIVES:
Longs for a tender and sympathetic bond and for a situation of idealized harmony. Has an imperative need for tenderness and affection. Susceptible to anything esthetic.


2. THE EXISTING SITUATION OR BEHAVIOR APPROPRIATE TO THE EXISTING SITUATION:
Dissatisfied. The need to escape continued involvement with her present circumstances makes it imperative for her to find some solution.


3. CHARACTERISTICS UNDER RESTRAINT OR BEHAVIOR INAPPROPRIATE TO THE EXISTING SITUATION:
Feels that she cannot do much about her existing problems and difficulties and that she must make the best of things as they are. Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.


4. REJECTED OR SUPPRESSED CHARACTERISTICS OR ANXIETY-LADEN CHARACTERISTICS:
Stresses resulting from disappointment have led to agitation and anxiety. Eager to make a good impression, but worried and doubtful about the likelihood of succeeding. Feels that she has a right to anything she might hope for, and becomes helpless and distressed when circumstances go against her. Finds the mere possibility of failure most upsetting and this can even lead to nervous prostration. Seeks herself as a "victim" who has been misled and abused, mistakes this dramatization for reality and tries to convince herself that her failure to achieve standing and recognition is the fault of others. Unrealistic self-justification.


5. THE ACTUAL PROBLEM OR BEHAVIOR RESULTING FROM STRESS:

#1:
Disappointment and the fear that there is no point in formulating fresh goals have led to anxiety, and she is distressed by the lack of any close and understanding relationships. She attempts to escape into a substitute world in which these disappointments are submerged and things are more nearly as she desires them to be.

#2:
Disappointment at the non-fulfillment of her hopes and the fear that to formulate fresh goals will only lead to further setbacks have resulted in considerable anxiety. She is trying to escape from this into a peaceful and harmonious relationship, protecting her from dissatisfaction and lack of appreciation.

or write about it on the open travel guide

Of those 25 states, I have lived in Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, and Ohio.
(sigh)

Why do I always get the stupid people in these classes?
Gods help me... there's a loud-mouthed woman in here. She's making up for the fact she's an idiot by being loud and obnoxious. The teacher's falling for it.

I should've brought the headphone to my MP3 player...

Morning! ;-)

Friday, March 19, 2004

Whoo! 64 movies in an hour of looking. ;-) Stuff like "Deep Space Nine: season 1" (which I barely remember, and everyone says it gets better every season) and "Babylon 5: season 1" (I've only seen a handful of later episodes), the rest of the Kenshin I never watched, some Evangelion, a bunch of Cadfael mysteries, and other random anime (Inu Yusha, Cowboy Bebop, etc.) that I've been hearing about but never seen. And Transformers seasons. I figure that'll keep me occupied while I'm recovering from my outpatient surgery. ;-)

Now I need to learn how to balance watching those and beating FF X. ;-) Ah well, more projects in life. I sleep too much anyways. ;-)
I've done it... I've broken down and joined up with NetFlix. 20 movies in the queue and counting...

You are Marcie!


Which Peanuts Character are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

(starts humming the theme)
Dickinson
You are Emily Dickinson! Not all that much is
known about Emily Dickinson, probably because
she holed herself up in her room and wrote
poetry. She didn't have very many connections
with the world outside her house, and her
poetry is very introspective and
compartmentalized. You need to get out more.


Which famous poet are you? (pictures and many outcomes)
brought to you by Quizilla

Yeah, but she wrote some damn powerful poetry.
Nirvana
Grunge! You're all about the music and would even
turn your back on fame just to stay true to
your roots... You reached your high in the
early '90s, but you're still making some good
stuff! Keep rocking!


What genre of rock are you?
brought to you by Quizilla


Yeah, but I wouldn't put a shotgun in my mouth and leave a mess for my wife and kid to find...
Finally remembered the Friday Five

If you...
1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?

Hmmmm... no seafood, no chicken. Asian and Italian influenced food. Don't fear the tofu!

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Anime and manga.

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?
Fantasy

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?
Computers and math, girls only.

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
My versions of lots of different stuff.
I say... and you think?

  1. Old Navy:: Overpriced
  2. Out:: Where I should be
  3. Indecent:: is different for every person
  4. UPN:: Don't get it
  5. Pupil:: Student
  6. Toothpaste:: preferably something with some whitening in it, since I refuse to give up coffee and tea, or pay $800 to my dentist to get it done professionally
  7. 1999:: didn't Prince retire that damn song?
  8. Passion:: hidden
  9. Social security:: Dead in 5 years
  10. Cliff:: Nestea plunge

Flexitarians

I love it! Now I know what to call myself. I like to be as vegetarian as possible, but there are days when a good thick steak hits the spot.
Refinancing went fine, I get money on Monday.

Raven's in the hospital getting rehydrated, she's lost 5 pounds in a day or two from throwing up all the time. :-(

Wednesday, March 17, 2004

Refinancing is today at 1pm. YAY!!! No mortgage payment for 3 months!

The outpatient procedure is the 31st at 3pm. If you can spare a kind thought at the time, please do. I really want this to work.

Tuesday, March 16, 2004

The addiction of going through Amazon's "Recommendations" and "New For You" sections is only equalled by the frustration as the damn thing pops up a "Cannot be found" every 3 clicks.
Sandra comes by, saying she's thrown up. But she's still here.

Of course she won't leave... it would interfere with her martyr complex. Then people wouldn't notice her.

An article about some outlawed fertility treatment that's legal in other countries

The woman in this article makes me want to scream. HELLO, BITCH?!? There are THOUSANDS of children waiting to be adopted. The fact that you can't conceive might be a fucking clue from someone that you need to look elsewhere. Why do you think your genetic material is so fucking important that it just has to be passed on?

Yuna


Which Final Fantasy X-2 character are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

Duh. Yuna and I have a lot in common, and I'm only half-way or so through FF X. It's the sense of responsibility, even at the cost of self.
HASH(0x884d858)
Angst. You are an angel of angst. Once one of
water. But your depression has caused you to
become an outcast. You love to be by yourself,
as it helps you think. You have always, and
always will wonder what has gone wrong. Your
soul has been shattered, and your wings are in
peices. But that's just you. You spend your
days searching for something. Not someone.
Though you don't know what you are looking for.
You don't even remember who you are. And are
always trying to find that person, yourself,
your soul. Which seems to have been misplaced. But.
When you find what you are looking for, it
will become clear. All tragedy will be ripped
from your wings, and your true colours will

You are a human shadow. If a loved one needs you,
you are always right at his or her heels! Your
deep social connection with human beings
produces your qualities of genuine caring and
charisma. However, at times you are naive to
the true nature of your loved ones. Remember
that humans' gift of free will does not always
lead them in wise directions. But your essence
of love and friendship represent the other
precious gifts of humanity. Overall you are a
strikingly valuable and innocent being who has
a lot to give.

Why aren't places open before 9am?

I go to the grocery store to get a Western Union money order, and while the registers are open, the customer support desk doesn't open until 9am. Nowhere else around that sells Western Union is open until 9am, either.
That damn bill in Georgia passed 146-16 or so.

Click on the Wildside link over on the right, then go to the message board. There's a link from Norko Kipte that has the email addresses of every single Georgia state senator. The bill is now in their house, so let them know that this is a REALLY BAD IDEA.

My God... if I lose Wildside, I don't know what I'll do.

Angel by Sarah McLachlan

Spend all your time waiting
For that second chance
For a break that would make it okay
There's always some reason
To feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction
Oh, beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty, oh, and weightless, then maybe
I'll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you feel
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line
And everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting
Keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
Don't make no difference
Escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness
Oh, this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark cold hotel room
And the endlessness that you feel
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here

And it was so nice last week...

Can I go home now? Seymour (FFX reference, sorry) needs an ass-kicking.
These are the days when I want to scream.

Asked for unsweet tea at the Taco Bell. Got all the way back to the office, then took a swig. It's sweet tea.

The surgeon can't see me until April 20th. Meanwhile, I have a call in to the GI doc about the antibiotic I'm taking. It's called Cipro. To put it in perspective, it's the stuff they gave the Anthrax victims a couple of years ago. Anyways, I want to know if it's really safe to take this stuff continuously for the next 6 - 8 weeks. I'll need another script or two, too.
Oooh, I step on the network guys' toes, now I'm in trouble.

Sorry I was able and willing to help someone right away to be able to log in...

The battery died in my car Saturday. There goes another $50...

Surgeon in Florida is trying to get me to come down there. He doesn't seem to understand that I am NINE HOURS away from where he is. He doesn't seem to get that the trip is a huge hassle, financially and mentally.

He'll get it, one way or another. I've made my choice.

It's not if, but when at this point.

Surgery, that is.

My pouch is failing. I have the third fistula (this one draining to the surface) in a year. I could go back to Florida for 2 - 4 weeks to get this latest fisulta "fixed"; or, I could go back to Florida for 4 1/2 weeks to get a whole new pouch; or, I could get a local surgeon to give me a Brooke's (an external pouch for the uninformed).

If you said, "Hmmm, door #3 looks nice," then you're thinking the same way I am.

I don't know when it is quite yet. I'm holding everything off because I'm in the middle of refinancing my mortgage. I also haven't met the surgeon yet, so it'll depend on his schedule as well. Right now I'm holding steady (well, as steady as you can with a draining wound) on Cipro twice a day.

Now, if you'll excuse me, there's fiends that need thrashing on the Moonglow Road. And chocolate to eat. And whiskey to eyeball.

You are Cleopatra of the Nile. The great
biographer of the time, Plutarch, wrote of
Cleopatra, 'Her actual beauty, it is said, was
not in itself so remarkable that none could be
compared with her, or that no one could see her
without being struck by it, but the contact of
her presence, if you lived with her, was
irresistible . . . It was a pleasure merely to
hear the sound of her voice, with which, like
an instrument of many strings, she could pass
from one language to another . . .' You have a
spark in you that draws other people to you.
Indeed, you are drawn to others because you are
always curious. People can talk to you; and
you have a passion in life to know, live, love,
and learn.

phoenix
You are a PHOENIX in your soul and your
wings make a statement. Huge and born of flame,
they burn with light and power and rebirth.
Ashes fall from your wingtips. You are an
amazingly strong person. You survive, even
flourish in adversity and hardship. A firm
believer in the phrase, 'Whatever doesn't kill
you only makes you stronger,' you rarely fear
failure. You know that any mistake you make
will teach you more about yourself and allow
you to 'rise from the ashes' as a still greater
being. Because of this, you rarely make the
same mistake twice, and are not among the most
forgiving people. You're extremely powerful and
wise, and are capable of fierce pride, passion,
and anger. Perhaps you're this way because you
were forced to survive a rough childhood. Or
maybe you just have a strong grasp on reality
and know that life is tough and the world is
cruel, and it takes strength and independence
to survive it. And independence is your
strongest point - you may care for others, and
even depend on them...but when it comes right
down to it, the only one you need is yourself.
Thus you trust your own intuition, and rely on
a mind almost as brilliant as the fire of your
wings to guide you.You are eternal and because
you have a strong sense of who and what you
are, no one can control your heart or mind, or
even really influence your thinking. A symbol
of rebirth and renewal, you tend to be a very
spiritual person with a serious mind - never
acting immature and harboring a superior
disgust of those who do. Likewise, humanity's
stupidity and tendency to want others to solve
their problems for them frustrates you
endlessly. Though you can be stubborn,
outspoken, and haughty, I admire you greatly.

In the Movies:

[taste]:: Do you take food or drinks into the movies? What do you like to eat/drink while you watch a movie?
Depends. If I've gone out to eat beforehand, no. Otherwise, I like water and some candy. What kind of candy depends on what the theater has.

[touch]:: Do you have a "kissing in the movies" story to share?
Yes, I have a story. Let's just say I missed most of "Basic Instinct". *blush*

[sight]:: Where do you like to sit when you go to the movies? Front, middle, back? Left, right? Does it matter? And what do you do when there´s someone sitting in front of you who´s blocking your view?
Middle of the row, front-to-middle of the rows. If someone's blocking me, usually I move.

[smell]:: If we could smell things in movies, which movie would you want to watch (and smell) and why?
I'd rather not most of the time, unless it was some scene in a restaurant.

[hearing]:: What do you do when people are talking during a movie and disturbing you? Are you the kind of person who sighs and hopes they will stop or do you say something?
Normally I'll say something like, "Would you please be quiet!" very loudly (opera training has it's uses). And no, I get mad. If they don't shut up, I'll go find the manager.

I say ... and you think ... ?

Hollywood :: fake
Censor :: government
Nascar :: redneck
Lube :: oil change
Mortgage :: refinance
Freedom :: given
Champion :: Queen
Reality TV :: stupid
New York :: big
