Wisconsin

 Well, things are okay here. I have gotten pretty used to the cold now and only need a sweatshirt to go out into 35 degree F weather. Of course, I don't stay out too long!! Anyways, here are a few photos that I wanted to share with you all! It really is quite beautiful here! I hope everything is going well for you all! I miss EVERYONE! *hugs*

Pictures here.....Collapse )

Wisconsin.....

I haven't posted here in a long time, so I thought that I would write a little bit of an update....

So, Paul and I are in Wisconsin!! Yay! Still haven't received our stuff from the moving company yet, but the apartment is very comfortable even without furniture and such. Paul says that he is loving his job and that the facilities here are much better than those at his last workplace. I am still looking for a job, and feeling very unmotivated about it.

We had some wicked icicles hanging from the roof of our deck. They all melted yesterday though when the sun was out in full force.

Oh, and I had my first experience in a car driving over snow and ice. It is really quite startling to feel the car suddenly swerve, especially on turns. I wasn't driving of course... Oh, and neither was Paul. It was his friend/coworker from Michigan who thought it was funny that I had never been in a car driving on ice. I think he went faster and took the turns quite fast just to make me nervous. *sigh*

That reminds me.... Paul and I first arrived in Milwaukee on the evening of January 3rd. It was quite cold of course, but I have to admit that I thought the cold was just due to it being dark... Anyways, waking up the next morning and getting ready to go outside to get breakfast, I could see the sun!! I actually turned to Paul and asked him if he thought I should wear only a sweatshirt or if I should wear my heavy jacket instead. It looked so sunny! He told me that I should wear both and I definitely thought that he would be joking... Nope. It was sunny with a beautiful blue sky outside, yet it was still 20 degrees F. He still makes fun of me for asking that silly question...

Apparently the high tomorrow should be 36 degrees F. Yay! Slightly above freezing!!

The local grocery store has a huge walk-in refrigerator inside devoted solely to beer. It is actually noticeably warmer in that stupid refrigerator than it is outside. *sigh*

Overall, this place isn't too bad. Haven't really had the chance to try and make new friends since everyone seems content to stay bundled inside, but there are actually quite a few places to go hang out at.

Sugar

My poor puppy died.....

Dalai Lama

Just saw the Dalai Lama's lecture at the Thunderdome. He is so funny! I just kept thinking that he would make a good grandpa...

Anyways, he told this funny story about when he was six and had to start learning all of the Buddhist teachings by heart. He said that at the time he was more interested in playing, so his teacher kept a yellow "holy" whip for him.... Hee hee!

Fortress of Sin?

Oh, no! Well, for those who don't know and all..... Paul and I have decided to move in together. (I still have to find out how I am going to move my furniture *sigh*) Anyways, the other night I told him that we have to name our place. He suggested to wait and let someone else name the apartment since it is bound to happen, but I really wanted us to name it. Well, we went through a few different names (Somethings of which I will definitely not write down, but others such as Fortress of Solitude *yay Superman!*, La Fortezza *an awesome place in Siena, Italy*, and The Island) Well, I liked the whole "Fortress" idea.... and Paul liked how Trevor and Kelly's room was named Sin..... So, against my better judgement and my personal favorite (La Fortezza), I believe that our place is now named The Fortress of Sin.

Now Paul and I need to throw a christening party..... Okay, after I reread that, it sounds so bad and dirty ;) Hee hee!

Have you fallen down the rabbit hole lately? Or played croquet with a deck of cards? Either way, you're so very much like Alice! Her wild imagination and constant ability to daydream got her in so much trouble - you've probably heard your mother or teacher lecture you about having your head in the clouds! Remember to stay grounded most of the time, however, because life can get away from you when you're always dreaming about someplace else!

Alone....

Feeling quite pitiful at the moment. Paul left for his rally race thing at around 7 am this morning and I haven't talked to anyone since... Robin is off on a road trip and Becca is back home visiting.

Feeling even more pitiful because I did not have a chance to go grocery shopping before Paul left. We arrived back in SB so late last night that everything was closed. Pretty much nothing in the house to eat except for pasta, jelly, peanut butter, and other condiments with no bread to use them on...

I guess that means I will have to try and make an effort to go out and do something about it tomorrow.

Just feeling lonely....
To all of my high school guy friends out there.....

I haven't talked to you in forever!! Awwwww! How have you all been? How are things? ... Wait, what? ... You had a crush on me all throughout high school and only insist on telling me now? ... Well, I am sorry, but that was a long time ago.

And you know what? I don't want to know!!

You know, it has been three years. You should have moved on by now. I have told you all that I have a nice boyfriend now whom I have been with for more than two years. I am happy with him. And no, I am not going to suddenly realize that I had a secret thing for you. I am not going to come home and fall in love with you, so you should just stop calling me or text messaging me.

Okay, just because I was really nice to you in high school did not mean that I had a crush on you. I just like being nice to the people around me (most of the time) because it just makes the world seem like a happier place. I didn't treat you any differently than the others...

Oh, you want to call and catch up on old times? Sure, why not! I don't mind seeing how people have changed over the years, but that does not mean that I want to think about what could have happened between us. It is the past and you are starting to creep me out.

You were my friends. I never thought about you that way, so why do you insist on bugging me now? It isn't going to change things!!

And don't call me your angel. I am in no way yours. Please don't call me or text message me every day. It's going to make me paranoid that you are somehow stalking me. I hate being paranoid.

So that's all. Leave me alone unless you want to talk about something nice and happy. Not including your secret crushes.

Oh, and telling me about your sexual exploits? Definitely not a turn on...

That's all, don't call me, bye.

Funny e-mail from Mother

I wish my computer would say these things.....

In Japan , they have replaced the impersonal Microsoft error messages with
Haiku poetry. Haiku Poetry has strict construction rules: Each poem
has only 17 Syllables - 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, 5 in
the third. They often achieve a wistful, yearning, and powerful insight
through extreme brevity. Here are some actual error messages from Japan .
Aren't these better than "your computer has performed an illegal operation?"

------------

The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.

------------

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

------------

Program aborting.
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask far too much.

Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.

The document you're seek ing
Must now be retyped.

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

I ate your Web page.
Forgive me; it was tasty
And tart on my tongue.
