Dang. I thought I'd responded to this.
I don't really like holidays and all the spending. I would rather just get someone a present in the moment, like when I come across something I think someone would like and not wait until the end of the year when I have to do that for everyone and I run out of good ideas.
A piano would probably bring me up to a 27% stylish out of a possible 100. I've got some cute mugs and cups, some album art on the walls, and nothing really all that tacky going on at my place, but it is a little bland. A piano would up things a bit, but it would still be fairly low.
And wouldn't I love a world without TV, or rather a world where I'd never had TV. Think of all the productive stuff I still wouldn't have gotten done would have done if I hadn't had the idiot box. But I couldn't give it up completely now. They got me hooked.

Ah shame ): holidays ruin everything involving my wallet, and yours apparently. Even when I spend wisely on my family/friends I get down to the wire. I worked for a school, too, but it's a day school for toddlers and such so we got like, two days off. But I got laid off right before Christmas so I spent my holidays frantically job-hunting. What a bad time. Thanks for the break, though, ex-employer? >:(
How much percent stylish would you be total if you had the piano? I'd share mine you but I'm a bit stingy with her, seeing as I actually do play. You can have my keyboard though. (Seriously, though, if you want a keyboard say the word and it's yours.) I realize this is random but I saw a toilet cover today with a star in the middle of it that said, "I will twinkle, if you tinkle." in something like comic sans. It was four dollars. Gary the Magic Fairy told me to buy two. Don't worry, I didn't. I saw a lot of weird things today.
Ah- it's like you don't even need a television. I say stick Karl pilkington's face in the window if you want more entertainment.
For real man I thought football was over @_@ God I hope I'm working that night, I do not want to be at home trying to ignore whatever is going to happen that night. I hope you find a place. Any cafes with wifi near you that'll be open during that time?

Money talk is reminding me that rent is due soon. Dang. My paycheck wasn't very large this time because of darned Christmas holiday. Okay, I enjoyed the break, but that was then and this is now.
Free piano? That beats out anything I've ever gotten free. I would feel 50% more stylish if my place had a piano even though I can't play a thing. Of course I wouldn't want to encourage the weird neighbors who sometimes get the itch to play on their drumset at 9 o'clock in the evening. Not that I mind the noise - they're quiet almost all the time - but they're kind of weird. I don't even know how many people live there, but it seems like there are always new people coming and going and since they have to walk right past the window to my place I get to see all their comings and goings.
Speaking of neighbors, the Stuporbowl is coming up so I have to remember to be somewhere else so I won't have to hear all the screaming and cheering. Plus I don't want to be around when the chicken wing shortage turns the fans into ravenous sports zombies.

Oof sorry it's taking me so long to respond. I'm doing a million things at once. My head is spinning. Call an exorcist. Jk but dang, are you coming down with something? That stinks. Vitamin C brajette. Consume some. I'm not much of a downer-taker but yes painkillers can be useful. Glad you have some on you.
That is incredible! My mom wants to give me her treadmill which I'd be so down with, but it's either that or the baby grand piano and there's no contest there. That is, I'm choosing the baby grand. I can just do that army crawling technique when I'm feeling out of shape. Which is always. Why don't we just save all this bulky stuff for our treehouse?
They're like gold roses and victorian prints. White ones too. There are some colorful ones with gemstones and butterflies, which I'm saving for my phone. Aw tiny strawberries! I almost impulse bought a strawberry keychain today. It was a bit expensive, but I have a thing for strawberries. I stopped myself when I realized I'd be paying in all ones and really didn't feel like dealing with all that counting and the judgment I'd face. I'm not a stripper, I swear! Just a sad broke waitress. plus I have a citation to pay off...ugh.

I could have used that machine, too, and one to clean me and do everything else for me. I felt all sick and painy this morning and had trouble even feeding myself. Thank goodness for pain killers.
Having an exercise bike is pretty nice. I got one for free from neighbors who were moving and didn't want it anymore. The only trouble is that there's no space for it so it sits outside until I want to use it and then I have to make space and move it inside and doing all that is already a workout.
Oooo, nail stickers. What are they? I have some tiny strawberries but I haven't used them yet. They were an impulse buy. I was feeling plain and wanted something cute. It's a bad thing to go shopping when I feel drab, just like I shouldn't buy groceries when I'm hungry 'cause I'll just buy chips and ice cream.

Yawn. After a long long night closing a restaurant I have an 8:30a doctor's appointment. It's 7:50 ( well was when I was typing this) and I'm not planning on moving anytime soon. That clothes machine we were talking about would really come in handy right now. As would a machine that removes customers that stay an hour after closing time. None of our crew had the man-strength, otherwise I wouldn't be complaining. I don't mind you judging those fools.
I started reading that second paragraph like a rhyme starting from the second sentence. But none of it rhymed so I got sad. I'd turn what you wrote into a rhyme but that'd be too much rhyming in one vm because I'm about to bust it out- subject: Science- Damn you science. You ate my appliance. I wish you death via hungry lions. Don't you go near my crayons. Go lay down. Ok maybe I hyped that up too much.
An exercise bike would be so useful to me. That way I could sit and exercise. I try to read while on the treadmill but my bobbing up and down as I walk is distracting. I try to watch tv shows but the treadmill is way louder than my computer and I can't find a place to put my computer that's close enough to attach headphones. I will totally try the crawling thing today, at the risk of looking ridiculous. No looking crazy, no...losing weighty. ?
Also heyoo got some kawaii nail stickers for a buck, gonna have fun with those

Ew, I would never think you would. Not that I'm judging, but, well, okay, I am judging. But not you since you don't.
I try so many ways to exercise to keep from being bored out of my mind. I try to read while on an exercise bike. I put music on. I try walking or jogging in different places every time. I've even tried this crawling exercise thing. Supposedly crawling works you out all over and I can kind of see why. But it hurts my elbows and knees and I don't really have space for that.
See my dog Science. I tried to teach my compliance, but he's got too much defiance. He... um... has an appliance.

Yeah all the salt and butter makes popcorn unhealthy. It also makes the popcorn edible, imo. I bet it is tiring, I wouldn't know, I've never tried hard enough...except when I went vegan a long time ago. That was hard...but even then I was still eating crap. Not real crap, mind you.
My problem with exercise is monotony. Doing the same things over and over, seeing the same things over and over...it's a terrible excuse but it keeps me from trying. God you should see my dog right now he's doing the strangest things. He's only performing really weird methods of scratching his ear, but he has seizure issues so he worries the hell out of me every time I turn around.
You are my new favorite rapper *__* if I may add- Then get eaten by a whale shark. Cause Noah left him off the Ark. Quark is now dead so angels grab your harps. Or is it harks. Question mark.
January 23rd, 2013 11:37 AMEsper
I have a popcorn popper, or whatever they're called. The kind you put the kernels in raw and makes a lot of noise. It's plain - no butter, salt, etc. so it's not unhealthy I think. Well, it's a lot loss unhealthy than a bunch of other things I could be eating anyway.
But ugh. Trying to be healthy is so tiring. All this walking and exercise. I get winded just thinking about it. Not really, but it feels that way.
Quark's a good name, and rhymes with a lot of things. Hear Quark bark. See him leave his mark. On a lark. In the park.

No worries! I can't get mad because I perform those all the time. Great flowchart, I have the same thing ingrained in my head, and because of it am somehow considered by my friends and family "a computer person." Which, to them, is synonymous with "member of Best Buy's Geek Squad." If I was so great with computers, mine would not be so effed up.
Chewing gum is how I quit smoking cigarettes. Two years strong! But still smoke weed everyday, won't stop that. Have to keep the memory of Nate Dogg alive somehow. What kind of popcorn do you eat? The kind I eat wouldn't help my eating habits at all. I'm honestly embarrassed to tell you how I eat my popcorn. -__-
For real. I'd like the clothes machine from The Jetsons. I'd actually rather just not move at all. I need to just clone an extra me to do anything that involves moving and deciding. Science is a great dog name! Quark is a good one, too, I think. I should make a children's book about a dog named Quark. Hear Quark bark.

Sorry for the disappearing act. Had to help a friend with computer troubles. Not that I can do anything with computers, but I have this nifty flowchart that helps.
When I feel hungry but also feel like I shouldn't eat I just chew gum or make popcorn. I don't really like gum, but it tricks my stomach into thinking it's eating so I can put off my meal to a more meal-appropriate time.
And where is my self-adjusting wardrobe, Science? I feel like I should have a dog with that name now. "Science, what did you do to my shoes?"

Very reasonable way to look at food. I try to see it that way but it doesn't stop my struggle with vegetables. I see food as comfort, thus go for simple carbs, and on my bad days it's not pretty. Luckily I can keep myself from eating too much fast food. I'm working toward no fast food.
And where are my heels that walk themselves? Seriously, my friend's wedding next week will not be easy.
You gonna make yourself something? I'm hungry too. But not in the actual meaning of the word. I'm just bored and need something to chew on.
January 21st, 2013 12:07 PMEsper
I don't think I've ever eaten food in a dream. Like, dreamed I ate food or actually ate while still asleep, though I've heard of people doing things like making sandwiches in their sleep and then waking up and finding a half eaten one. I'm not that much of a food person though. I'm like that other rat in Ratatouille, the one who says "food is fuel." That's how I look at food. I mean, I like some things and not others, but yeah.
Science will remain on my naughty list until it gets going on all those wonderful things I want. Where is my teleporter? My self-cleaning house? My machine that turns garbage into food again?
There's a lot of food in this. I must be hungry.

Oh my D: I'm too short to even see the hood of my car, I wouldn't make it on that kind of road, no way no how. On my way home this morning I accidentally merged a little too far to the right trying to avoid a fairly wide truck on a narrow road. I was already on the shoulder, little did I know. Luckily I wasn't driving over a bottomless pit. What a scary thought.
Oh, lucid dreaming seems so fun. I've lucid dreamed only a couple times, in both I immediately forgot I was lucid and went back to doing whatever boring thing I was doing. Have you ever had dreams in which you ate food? I recently had a dream like that, and usually when I have a dream about consuming something I wake up before I can consume it. In my last dream I smoked and ate and I can't recall how I felt about it. I just know it felt real. Makes me wonder what my irl body was doing.
How dare you say the name of science in vain. I do wish I had something to "get on," though. I'm out of things to do. I might stitch a castle onto my pillowcase in a little bit, though.

I just can't drive some roads. A while back I went to this state park that was kind of out of the way and to get there you have to go along this road that's not very wide and on one side it's nothing but big slabs of rock and on the other nothing but empty space below you for at least several hundred feet. Had to close my eyes. If I'd been driving I'd have had to stop and let someone else take over.
I hate dreams where I'm at work. Those are the saddest, lowest dreams I ever have. I wish I could lucid dream and be able to think "I want to dream I'm on a water slide at a water park" and then dream I'm doing that. Science, what are you sitting around for? Get on that, chop chop.
