Look, I’m here…and I’m not posting a video. It’s a post with actual words!
(i love ginger cats!!)
So know how I said I was going back to work on March 22nd? Heh, NOT. I’m actually going back Monday but I only have to work for 4 days cuz our location is closing down and we’re all getting laid off. Yipee! Obviously, I am thrilled. This last month and a half of school is going to be tough. But it’ll be a little easier if I don’t have work to worry about. Our next final is on Monday and then we’ll be in the last mod. My last day of school is August 12. It seems so far and yet not. I’m excited for it to be over but nervous as all hell. I try to be confident but then I get a bad grade on a quiz or I mess up something SO stupid and *whoosh* there goes confidence. It’s very frustrating. Oh! We got to watch an autopsy! Not live (unfortunately), it was on dvd. Still pretty interesting. A lot of it looked like food. Like congealed blood in the heart looks like grape jelly, ribs look like ribs, and I don’t know if it was the lighting but the woman’s fat was cheeto-colored. I couldn’t tell Matt about it cuz he gets grossed out easily. You’d think he’d be used to it-he’s seen every Saw movie in the theaters w/ me. Guess I can’t tell him when we dissect fetal pigs in class. Would it be mean if I sent him a pic of the pig brains?
I read a buttload of books so far. My year started off very slow, with only 4 books in January but I’ve been in the double digits since Feb. I’m on my 70th book now. My goal for this year was to read more new books but I did reread the Dresden files, Sookie and Kushiel series. So yeah, not as many new books as I wanted to read. I just counted-38 new books, 32 rereads. Of course if it wasn’t for Facebook, I’d probably have read at least 10 more books by this point.I had to make a new Facebook for the ‘real’ me cuz the game stuff overtook my other FB.
Matt and I watched all 7 seasons of Buffy and we’re into the second season of Angel. Spike is my fave character and I really didn’t like Angel much but I am warming up to him. I found out that James Marsters (Spike) was going to be at Wizard World Philly so I talked Matt into going. We saw Linda Hamilton while we were waiting in line but I didn’t get the camera out fast enough. And then I met JM! He is AWESOME. Easily my fave celeb so far. He wasn’t in a rush and he talked to us and I must’ve shaken his hand like 4 times, haha. After that, we went to meet Julie Newmar. She was nice too, a little flighty but she was so sweet. We went to JM’s Q& A and it was fantastic. After we ate, we went to Bruce Campbell’s Q&A and of course, he was frickin hilarious. Some woman was rambling on, not even really asking a question and he said he was going to punch her in the face. I love that guy. He made us laugh so hard that it hurt. I didn’t meet him tho cuz I’ve been on disability and I didn’t have a lot of money. I’ll have to wait til his next book comes out, whenever that is.
Well damn, it’s 3:30am and I should be in bed. Matt and I are driving to Philly tomorrow for my grandpa’s birthday/father’s day party. It’s also my grandpa’s brother’s birthday and he’s going to be 85. My mom told me that it’s a surprise for him. I question the wisdom of surprising an 85 year old man…so I’m not going to say ‘Surprise’ just in case. That way I can’t be an accessory. Just a witness. I just hope all the shoobs don’t go home early tomorrow cuz I do not feel like dealing with those shenanigans.
I’m working on a post about my love of books. It’ll probably go up later this week, if you’re interested. I updated ‘currently reading’,’ me’ and ‘people i met’. I also have a tumblr. I mainly use it for pics and videos so I can stick to just words here. I also tend to reblog Batman stuff and bookshelves <3

I love this show. Frickin.Love.It. But, it’s on the bubble and things don’t look good. E! does this thing where they have people vote for bubble shows. The shows that gets the most votes gets promoted on E! and EOnline and they go to the network to try to save it. So please, go there and vote for Better Off Ted. It deserves another season. I’m tired of great shows getting canceled and replaced with more shitty reality shows. Or even worse, generic, predictable and regurgitated sitcoms. Better Off Ted is one of the best shows to come along since Pushing Daisies (RIP ) So we should vote vote vote so it gets a third season.
Here is the link:
You don’t have to register and you can vote multiple times. Just refresh the page. And if you wind up voting for a different show, maybe throw in a vote or 2 for Better Off Ted

Ah, 311 Day A day to celebrate my fave band (going on 15 years for me). A band that puts a smile on my face whenever I hear them, picks me up whenever I am down and fills my heart with love and positivity.
‘Hey You’ describes exactly how I feel about 311 <3
Happy 311 Day everyone!

So if anyone is interested, I am using my LJ as a workout journal: http://angiebatgirl.livejournal.com/
I wonder how long I can keep that up.
I’ve been out of work since mid-January. My hand had been hurting for a few weeks so I finally make it to a hand doc. Surprise, surprise-I have carpal tunnel. I mean typing for 8 hours a day at work, yeah who didn’t see that coming. Especially since the ghetto cubicles we have aren’t set up for typing long term. I’m having surgery on Monday and then I’ll be out til March 22, as long as everything is ok. Oh boy, I do not want to go back. When Matt comes home with stories, I’m actually thankful for my CT. I don’t miss it and I def don’t miss those raging assholes. Of course there are some people who aren’t raging assholes and they know who they are. Matt keeps telling me that people are asking about me. Now these are people who talk shit about me (and everyone else) when I’m there but now they’re all concerned. Well, as far as I’m concerned, they can take their fake-ass caring and blow it right outta their asses. I hate even hearing about them cuz it just brings me back to how much I HATE that place and those animals.
Anyway, snomageddon happened and I told Matt I wanted to make a snowman. After much roughhousing and snow throwing, we attempted to begin the base. Yeah, no. The snow wasn’t having it. I wound up making a mini snowman army while Matt piled up a s/t of snow and made a snowfort. I did manage to get some lumpy snow together to make a snow man and a snow dog.
And let me just say how much I flipplin LOVED Sherlock Holmes. Like, almost as much as I love Batman.
I feel tingly in my hand so it’s time to stop. Yay :/

I had a nice birthday hangout w/ friends and family on Saturday I got some book stuff and Matt bought me my new enV3 <3 Today, we’re having breakfast at Denny’s and who knows what. Probably just hanging out til Matt goes to work/I go to school. Still, spending the day w/ my boy is a pretty good way to spend my birthday

Just a quick post tonight, I plan to post more when I’m out of school in a couple of weeks.
Saw 311 again, it was AWESOME Wore earplugs for the first time and it was great. I could hear the band and the music and my ears weren’t ringing afterwards. I got them from here: http://www.earplugs.ecrater.com/ So if you’re looking for decently priced earplugs, there ya go.
I relearned how to crochet and picked up loom knitting (thanks to my friend Ashley). Some lucky fellas are getting hats/scarves for xmas…or close to xmas
School is going pretty good. I got an A in my first mod and an A on my first final. This second mod is a little tougher so I may get a B but that’s ok with me.
This xmas is #6 for me and Matt. I do hate christmas and don’t know what I’d do without Matt during this season…or any season for that matter. (Awwwwwww)
This is going to have to be all for tonight. I have a hat to finish (not saying who it’s for!!) and some sleep to get sleepin’

The boyf and I doing the JDRF diabetes walk on October 25th. My little sister has diabetes and she’s awesome Our team is called Sam’s SuperWalkers. We did this walk 2 years ago and it was a lot of fun. My cousin and her boyfriend are joining us this year so our team will be a little bigger. If you are interested in donating, you can go here:
I would greatly appreciate any donations I’m not going for a prize or anything, I’m hoping this will eventually help my sister and all the other people affected by diabetes.
Thanks a lot and I’ll be sure to post pics from our walk when we get home that weekend.
