*People have been stealing our gas from our SUV and pick-up truck

*Thieves broke into a house up the street and stole $30,000 worth of valuables

*Eureka is still awesome and is rapidly becoming a ship show where it didn't use to be - I'll miss it being my non-ship show

*1% of the people who take the FSOT pass it, 1% of the people who take the OA pass it and only 1% actually get hired by State. I'm screwed, but I'm going to try anyway.

*A co-worker really does think I'm stupid. It's ok, I think he's an asshole.

*I really do attract creepy people, dammit all.

*My mom (finally!) quit her job.

*Dad moved over to his new job and is now back on shift work.

Back from the hospital. They couldn't find anything wrong with him, but did stress that he did need to follow up with his regular physcian. [livejournal.com profile] cancerouselflvr and [livejournal.com profile] selenityk thank you for your thoughts. He's upstairs now, resting.

I'm currently sitting here watching a kdrama named "Bad Couple" and it's amazingly addicting. I keep getting caught up in these things, and then abandoning them half-way through when the stupid gets to me.

I've been thinking a lot about joining the Manassas Community Choir. I've been playing the CD of my semester in Chorale at RMWC, and I miss singing terribly. They have open try outs in August and I think I'm going to do it.

I've also been thinking about one song we sang, "Robert Schumann", a lot lately. I find myself humming it at odd moments during the day. I hated it when we sang it, but now I find it growing on me. I guess it's because of all of the reminising I've been doing about R-MWC and the days gone by. DD will be going to college in five years, driving in three with JJ not far behind her. Where did the years go? I'm ten years older than her and she'll be going to college soon (sort of?)?! What happened?

My favorite uncle (who I've been staying with recently as we try to figure out the skin thing) collapsed at church today and has been taken to Prince William Hospital.

Well, I went to the allergist. There wasn't much help in that corner (couldn't even score a RX allergy pill and I actually asked for it! Shocking, I know.)...did say that the timing was suspicious (because it started up when I got the little guys), tho'. So that prompted the move of VnB from my room to the dining room. They did not take it well, at all. They moped the first day, and because I kept my door shut (no use in tempting fate, I know), they would scratch forlornly at the door. It was really pathetic in a really, really adorabibble way. I luff them so much. :D

Anyway, things have been pretty busy here. J.J. graduates from elementary to middle school on Wednesday, which will be fun. I missed D.D.'s induction into the JNHS because Auntie had the wrong time, so I hope I get to make it to this one.

Work has been a killer, but at least I've been busy instead of being bored, which is a good thing. Of course, part of the busy work is getting all of the term'd employee files into E2K which is frightfully and mind numbingly dull. But I rediscovered my Our Lady Peace CD's because of it, so I guess I can't complain about it that much. (Oh, who the hell am I kidding? IT BORING. SRSLY. I get to complain.) And I get to destroy all of the files over 7 years old, so it's been cool, sort of. It's been taking me a long while to get through it, mostly because I like to read the files before I put them away. I'm nosy like that - I guess in this case it's a good thing, because the E2K files really need to be updated. After I get done with the term'd employees, I guess I'll turn to the current employees to make sure their E2K files are up to date. I know I'm making more work for myself, but I think it will really help M. out in the future.

I'm once again seriously thinking about doing the motorcycle course and learning how to drive the damn thing. I already have the helmet, dammit, I should use it so it won't be a freaking waste of money! Maybe I can surprise my dad with it and we can finally go on that trip we've been thinking about. I know I'm a flake, but I really don't want to flake out on this.

I've also been thinking of going back to school, this time for the art degree that I wanted before. There's an open house soon at one of the Art Institute campuses that I think I should check out. Just to see. Maybe. <.< >.> We'll see. I really need something fun to do.

It amazes me how you can tell a person that you're going to a movie store and that you'll be gone for over an hour and that they don't understand that there is a REALLY GOOD CHANCE that you'll want to WATCH THE MOVIE when you get home and wait until you get home to monopolize the TV by playing video game.

First off, a quiz!

Your soul is bound to the Second Totem, Luna:
The Wolf

Luna appears as a pair of coral colored wolves.
She embodies empathy, nurturing, insight,
and warmth
. She is associated with the
color coral, the season of spring, and the
element of wind. Her downfall is pathos.

You are most compatible with Doves and Ravens.

And secondly, my weekend.

I had a rather good weekend actually. My Saturday kinda flew by because I was stuck in a car for most of it, or waiting for my dad to show up, or waiting for mom to come home/wake up/do stuff, and yeah. Anyway, Saturday was kinda a relax and get yourself reenergized day.

Didn't seem to help though. On Sunday Mom decided to take me shopping and I was wiped out after two hours. Ouch. Definately not my best time. I found som really awesome clothes, though! I got a sweater, a button down shirt, a sweatshirt type thing, and a kimono/yukata type top thingie. That I don't have pants for...hmmm, I'll have to remedy that...Anyway, I got all of these things at my favorite store H&M, but DAMN are the people there all too rude! I wanted to kick the shit out of our cashiere! As mom and I were leaving the store, a lady ran up to my mom and said she had forgotten her receipt (which I thought was funny because I knew that the receipt was in the bag). After studying it for a moment, mom went back to the register to hand the receipt back to that bitch, and she was making fun of my mom for forgetting the receipt, and it was her own damn copy the stupid bitch!!! What was she a fucking MORON? Does she not eyes in her head, or just no brain?? Idiot. Just thinking about it pisses me off to no end! GRAWR~! Urge to kill, rising...RISING!!

Mom told me to let it go, but the next time I'm there I'm definately going to talk to the manager about their staff, and if that doesn't work, I'll talk to whomever I have to. I mean, it's not just the one child, but all of them are rude and obnoxious and snobby and where the hell do these people get off? Sometimes, I just want to work there so the shoppers could see a friendly face amoung all of the dreary, I'm-bettter-then-thou expressions we normally have to deal with. Ugh. If only they didn't sell such nice clothes at such reasonable prices...T_T

Anyway, to top off my day, mom showed me this totally awesome leather jacket. It's a large, black, leather trench that goes all the way to my ankles! It's totally fantastic, and the best thing was...it was on sale~! $180 marked down from $480!! Squee! Three hundred dollars off, baby, yeah! AND the really nice guy who helped us opened up the other store that was opening across the way (they were moving) to get it for me! *sniff* It's absolutely gorgeous! I love you, Mom~!

Today, I did absolutely nothing but laze around the house, laundry, and attempt to read my book for E.Asian Civ. Ultimately, I like it and it's very interesting, but it's sooooo...dry. Boy, can I pick them or what? ^_^;;;;

So, yeah, sadly I'm not coming back to college until tomorrow. I'm sorry, Karlene~! *sniff* I know I said we could explore the tunnel...if you want, I can give you the directions to them and you and Denise can go without me. That way you can still get to see them without too much difficulty...unless the door's locked, then you might have a small problem...eheheheheheheheh...

I got some rather depressing news today. One of my brother Brandon's friends, Jay, was critically wounded in Iraq recently. No one is really sure what happened or when, just that his parents are going to Germany to be with him. My dad's going to check around tomorrow, so hopefully we'll get something more definate.

I wanted to mention all the other new things in my life, like my dad getting a motorcycle and that I'm going to learn how to drive it and such, but this just puts a pall on anything else that I wanted to say. While Jay and I weren't exactly close, I'm still very saddened because Brandon can't be here and won't get news right away, because that there's a chance that he could lose a good friend, because it had to happen at all. Jay was a noncom dammit, and while there is always a risk in war, noncoms shouldn't get hurt.

All of this strikes to close to home. Way to close. In my mind, I want to shove, and did shove, the concept of war as something far away, something that won't affect me, something that *can't* affect me. And this blows everything up. War *will* affect me and mine, and it's brutal and vicious and deadly and a place where even noncoms can and will get injured or dead. And really, in the back of my mind, I know this, but knowing and *knowing* are two different things. Now I *know*, and nothing will ever be the same.

And I feel kinda sick because all I can really think is: Thank you God, because Dad gets out at the end of July, and I won't have to worry about him as much any more.

I've spent the last half hour jto hour listening to my dad play his computer video game, Star Wars II: something something, wondering why he didn't just put his headphones on, because I know he has them. I turn around and look...

...and he is wearing his headphones. He was trying not to bother me, sweet man that he is. However, this only works if the headphones are *working*.

Sad, sad little man...^_^

Or, in other words, been a while, yes? Not a whole lot has been going on in the wonderful world of Heather, tho', so I guess it's ok. At the moment, I'm sitting in my living room watching Stargate on Sci Fi. Richard Dean Anderson is so sexy. #^_^#

All I've been doing is really is work. My life is so unexciting. 9_9 Although, I was wrong about getting paid $6.00/hr. I'm getting paid $6.50/hr instead. Joy of joys. Although, it always makes me smile whenever my manager calls me "Baby Doll." Carol is so sweet. I love her, she's great. ^_^ I also have a special place in my heart for my co-workers, Peggy and Arlene, both of whom are over 50, and very Southern. I love hearing about Peggy's family and Arlene's cats. Talking to them helps me get over my fear of talking to elderly people, like my grandparents and Nana.

On a slightly different note, my mom didn't nay say my dad and I getting a motorcycle. The only stipulation is that we have to get a fourth car for me. Well, for my use. It really wouldn't be my car, per se, but there for the family, and I would take it down to college for me, like my brothers do w/ the SUV. One can only hope. ^_^

A couple days ago, I was reading a book on Wiccans and Witches. It was a partially an Almanac for 2003-2004. Every time I came across Bhuddism my heart did a little leap, as if to say, "That's what you're missing! That's what you need. Sadly, however, I don't think I could ever truly make a conversion from Christianity to Bhuddism, I believe in God and Jesus Christ too much. Although, as soon as I have a free moment, I think I'll go to the library and find out more about the different sects of Bhuddism and what it is all about. I only know a little right now, and I think I need to know more. Actually, I know I need to know more...I wonder how my parents would take it if I switched religions? Actually, I think the person I would really have to convince would be my twin brother, Travis. He's really closed minded about many things, no matter what he says.

My aunt got a new dog! It's a Welsh Corgi, which is fitting, because their last name is Welsh. It's soooooo cute. Generally, they look like dogs that have had their legs cut off, but he was adorable. Of course, puppies generally are, it's the actually doggies that may or may not look cute. Although, Shawnie, our dog, is still hyper-cute. ^___^ I love Shawn. She's so sweet.

I was talking to my dad last night, while we were watching the History channel's "Color of War," which is a show about, well, war. It seems to be about WWII and the lengths that the US Military go through to make sure that they're people get through alive or some such. Although, this was the second episode out of four (I think), and the only one I've seen.

As many of you who read this may know, my father's in the military, the army more specifically. So as we're watching the show, my father gives me little random tidbits about things that they don't mention, or explains other things more fully (like the fact that the military "boots," before they were changed, were little more than shoes with leggings, so they wore through very, very easily.) When they get to the part about the Colt .45 being the preferred weapon of choice for most soldiers, he gives me two very interesting facts:

1.) The Colt .45 was used to stop drugged up natives in the Philippines, when the US occupied there, being as the heavy .45 slug, if a person hit anywhere would stop them, not matter how drugged they are. (If they hit limbs, it would practically take the limb _off_...)

2.) That the one time he didn't shoot expert at the firing range was back when the Army replaced the Colt .45 with a 9mm! I was like WHAT?? SHOOT EXPERT??? My jaw literally dropped. Now, I have a lot of respect for my dad, but I just never thought of him as someone capable as doing that. (Not that I'm saying that he's inept at anything, no way, my dad know's how to do lots of things!) I think what it really was is that I've never thought of my dad as shooting guns before, especially never thought of him as being graded on it (and at such a high level too!). Which is really kind of stupid. I mean, my father's a Lt. Colonel for crying out loud, of *course* this is going to happen! *sigh* Just rip my naivete away, why don't you?

Well, after that little bomb shell, I was like wow. That's really all I could say about it, was just *wow*. Shooting expert at a firing range...now that's just damn impressive. (To me at least, someone who's never shot a gun, and know next to nothing about how people "graded" for lack of a better term on their shooting skills.)
