First public post in aaaaaaaaaaaages

LOL, I haven't updated for almost a month, and I come back with a rant. But hey, I guess that's what this thing is for, right?


Let me tell you about my shit-tastic day.

I didn't fall asleep til about 7:30, possibly 8:30. Then I got up a little before 3. And it wasn't really good, deep sleep, either. Very light. Very annoying.

Then when I got to work, the main dickhead in our story came charging into my trim room, startling me half to death, WHILE I had a knife in my hand. And my chest was tight, I felt kind of light-headed, and I was hungry, so there was all that shit happening.

Fast-forward to about 7:30 this evening. He starts talking politics. Now, I don't particularly care what your political affiliation is, but when you start saying that the things I believe are horse shit, and don't let me get a word in edgewise, I get pissed off.

And then he starts in on gays. I'm going to try and get this down as best I can, but I'm really tired, so I may leave things out. Speak up if it doesn't make sense.

The first thing he said was that being gay was "unnatural". Not even gonna touch that one, I'll be here all night while I look up articles and news stories and whatnot.

He said gay people getting married didn't make any sense, since they couldn't procreate. I'll never forgive myself for not thinking of this response sooner, but what about binding yourself to the person you love forever? Declaring to all the world that you're in love? And the rights and privileges that come with being married, knowing that you're together and no one can tear you apart?

I asked him, since apparently he "doesn't have a problem with gay people", if you don't, why are you against them getting married? Why, because they can't procreate! (Get a new argument, MY GOD.) And he's against them adopting as well, because they'll try to "push the gay agenda" on their children, and their children will say, "Fuck you" and resent them for it.

At this point, I managed to scrape my jaw off the floor and ask him, "What the fuck is the gay agenda?" And he says that they're fighting for their make money. (I CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP.) That even after they gain equal rights, they'll still say, "Oh, we're being picked on!" and hold fundraisers and events to try to make a profit. He said black people were the same way.

I have never wanted to bury a cleaver into someone's skull as much I did that asshole's. I honestly cannot believe he was telling me this with a straight face, and that he seemed firmly convinced that he was not only correct, but that me and the other guy listening would agree with him.

I just have no words for the amount of rage this idiot stirred in me. And people wonder why I'm a cynic with a hair trigger. MEET EXHIBIT A.

(no subject)

So...I don't know how many of you know this, but I have heart issues. Supra ventricular tachycardia, to be exact. It sometimes beats too fast, and my chest feels tight sometimes when it happens, and sometimes when it doesn't.

I don't have health insurance, which means going to the OR is very expensive, and I can only go when I have an attack that won't stop. I know I sound like an attention-seeking drama whore (this post=case in point), but talking to other people about it helps in two ways. One, I realize I could be worse off. And two, it keeps my mind clearer, and I don't go off into 'OMGPANIC!' mode.

I'm leaving this post public for IDK how long, so you can understand why I sometimes completely freak out about some tightness in my chest. Why a rising heart rate for me is cause for a freakout. Why I complain about my body and why I act all paranoid.

This is why.

I actually had a pretty decent day at work today, and that was on top of getting paid, LOL.

I was talking to my friend Levi in the deli, and apparently my aura is blue-green (he's Wiccan, and somehow opened his Third Eye. I wonder if he could teach me how! *is very interested*). I went poking around on the Internet, and here's what that means:

Blue-green, or Turquoise promotes intuition. Turquoise is the color of communication.

Too much and we can become over-analytical, fussy and egocentric, pushing your heart out of the way and letting logic make all of your decisions.

Too little and we can become secretive, closed, confused about what we want, and possibly sneaky or a bit paranoid. This is very different from being shy.

When this Chakra is blocked we experience: Emotional problems in our relationships to other people


Blues are some of the most loving, nurturing and supportive personalities of the Life Colors. They live from their heart and emotions. Their purpose for being on the planet is to give love, to teach love and to learn that they are loved. Their priorities are love, relationships, and spirituality.

Blues are traditionally teachers, counselors, and nurses---basically the loving, nurturers and caretakers on the planet. Blues are constantly helping others. They want to make sure that everyone feels loved and accepted. People are always turning to Blues for comfort and counsel because Blues will always be there for them. They consistently provide a shoulder for others to cry on.

Blues are the most emotional personalities in the aura spectrum. They can cry at the drop of a hat. Blues cry when they are happy, hurt, angry, sad, or for no apparent reason at all. Even watching a sentimental commercial on television can bring on tears.

Greens are some of the most powerful and intelligent people in the aura spectrum. Greens are extremely bright. They process information and ideas quickly; jumping from steps one to ten. They do not like dealing with all the steps and details in between.

A project that is too detailed is tedious and boring for Greens . They prefer to develop an idea, organize a plan, and then delegate someone else to take care of the details.

Greens are very drawn to money, power, and business. These quick-thinkers are very organized and efficient. They write lists and efficiently check off the items on the list as they are completed. Greens recognize patterns and discover solutions very quickly.

When Greens are in their power, they can accomplish anything. They love to set goals and are determined to achieve them. Greens are “movers and shakers” when it comes to taking action. They are also typically the workaholics on the planet.

Greens are highly competitive and enjoy challenges. They thrive on taking risks. Gambling is common for Greens , especially if there is a potential for large winnings.

Being strong-willed, these powerful personalities are determined to have their own way, which they usually feel is the right way. A person is rarely able to win an argument with Greens.


If you think about it...he's actually not far off the mark. A lot of those things are pretty accurate when it comes to describing me. However, he told me he can't see his own aura. Hmmm. (In case this wasn't already obvious, I'm kinda crushing on him. LOL *facepalm*)

Uhm...I think I'm having caffeine withdrawl. Oooh, there are bottles of Diet Pepsi in my car. LOL, score!

My dad and I have hung out a lot more the past few days: we rented The Duchess last night, and on New Year's Eve we had chinese food and talked while we ate. My mom and youngest brother are in England for some parade (lucky bitches!), and they won't be back until late tomorrow, hence we've been spending more time together. I'm actually enjoying it, we don't get to do this...uhm, ever. LOL

OK, I think that's it...before I bore y'all to death, LOL. TTYL, y'alls!
