I will probably not be updating this thing for the next two weeks because I have to get ready for my if you don't see anything from me, that's why!

Much Better!

Okay, today I'm in a much better mood.
So, I'm working on a list of my favorite movies and when I say "favorite movies", I mean movies that I absolutely love and could watch over and over and over! So, that's going to take a while though.

So, I'm totally excited because Jason and I got tickets to Artie Lange at Mississippi Nights Saturday! I can't wait!

People Are Strange

Why are people so weird? Or is it that I'm weird? I don't know, but what I do know is that I am sitting here at work and I just cleaned my computer screen with Windex and some guy comes out of no where (a guy I don't even talk to) and tells me that "You want a tip?" First off, do I look like I need a tip on cleaning my computer screen? Then he says, "my wife runs a cleaning business and she swears by Glass Plus over Windex. She will never use Windex again, you should try Glass Plus when you do cleaning at home." Um, who the hell asked you? And, I live with my parents, so I don't do a lot of cleaning! Not to mention, I'm using Windex because that's what I have here at work, it's not like I went out and bought it! As a matter of fact, I happen to use Windex at home too and I don't have any problems with it...maybe this guy's wife doesn't know how to clean! Ugh! People! I would never go up to someone I don't even know and start that kinda crap with them! Weirdo!

Okay, guys, I'm sure you can see what kind of day this is going to be, huh? I mean damn! I think I hate people more and more each day! I'm such a crabby person, sad isn't it?

It's weird, it used to be that J's voice would sooth me if I was in a bad mood, but that doesn't work anymore. And, on top of that, I'm in the worst mood of all today!

I'm tempted to just get up and walk out of work...but, I sort of need a job seeing as how I'm old enough to be responsible for my own life!

Okay, I'll quit crabbing for now, I'll write later...

Gotta Love Those Sneaky Catholics!

I told you I'd be back...but I just checked my emails and found this and I love it!!

John Kerry was scheduled to appear at the Catholic National Cathedral outside Washington as part of his campaign. Before the day Kerry was to show up, a top Kerry staffer made a visit to the Cardinal and said to him, "We've been getting a lot of bad publicity among Catholics because of Kerry's position on abortion and the like. We'd gladly make a contribution to the church of $1,000,000 if during your sermon you'd say 'John Kerry is a saint'."

The Cardinal thinks it over for a few moments and finally (painfully) says, "The Church is in desperate need of funds and I will agree to do it.

"Kerry smugly shows up looking especially confident that day and, as the Mass progresses, the Cardinal begins his homily.

"John Kerry is a petty, self absorbed hypocrite and a nitwit. He is a liar, a cheat, and the lowest kind of snake ever to be inflicted on the American people. He wrote a book and portrayed himself in the best light even though he was a traitor to his fellow vets and his country. He has lied about his military record and had the gall to put himself several medals. He married for money and is using it to repeatedly lie in order to get elected.He is the worst example of a Catholic I've ever personally known. But compared to Ted Kennedy, John Kerry is a saint."

THX 1138

Okay, so J is home tonight and we're watching the movie "THX 1138". It's very strange. I think it's just another version of 1984. George Lucas was DEFINITELY a complete Sci-Fi geek in graduate school! Oh well, I've kinda quit watching it (obviously or I wouldn't be on here now) and J is still watching it. I couldn't tell you what was going on right now... I'm bummed that it's Sunday night already and I have to go to work tomorrow! Ugh! I can't express how much I hate working...I don't think I was born for middle class - I really think I was supposed to be from an uberwealthy family and somehow I got switched at birth! I wonder, was I born at the same hospital as Paris Hilton or anyone like that? I could so be a big party girl if that's all I had to do! Eh, the chances are slim that I was switched at birth since you can plainly see both of my parents in me...oh well...another day, another dream (of being rich that is, not of being from a different family, I rather like my family).

Oh well,

A Little Bit About Me...

I just realized that if anyone was to actually read my posts, they would have no clue who I was or what I was talking about, so here is a little bit about me...

My name is Mikala, I'm 26 years old (I'll be 27 next month on October 30). Right now, I work full time at the local electric companyand I got my B.S. in Business Administration at Maryville University in St. Louis. But unfortunately, I'm a glutton for punishment because I'll be going back for my MBA or to Law School soon...I just think that's the only way to get anywhere anymore and the sad part is the only thing I'm good at - well I don't know about Law...we'll find out when I take the LSAT.

I have a boyfriend that I've been with for 5 years and his name is J. Our favorite thing to do together is travel. We've only been a few places together though - we've been to Disney World, New Orleans, Chicago (a few times), Indianapolis, Germany, Switzerland, France and we're leaving for Hawai'i on the 24th of October. I can't wait to go to Hawai'i. I've been begging J to take me to Ireland, but for some strange reason he doesn't want to go there - the weird part is that he's IRISH! Oh well, maybe I'll talk him into it someday!

Let's see...what else is there about me...well, I basically lead a VERY boring life. I don't do much anymore because everything is a waste of money!

I am a Creative Memories Consultant and I LOVE scrapbooking! I'd love to be able to quit my job and just be a Consultant or Unit Leader, but apparently I suck at that because no one ever wants to come to my classes or anything - so I've kinda given up on that...

I was born in South St. Louis City, when I was five we moved to South County (Mehlville) and I grew up there. We moved to Wildwood (a suburb of St. Louis) about 3 years ago and I still live with my parents! I went to Mehlville Sr. High and graduated in 1995. Right after that I went to St. Louis University, but ended up at Maryville University - who knows...I don't think I was actually ready for college after high school, so that will explain why it's taken me about 7 years to actually graduate.

I have an older brother who's 33 and has two sons. He currently lives in the house I grew up in with his girlfriend S and his youngest son Snake (obviously not his real name). Snake is 6 - he's so cute! My other nephew is Z and he is 12 years old and just started 7th grade! He's a very smart kid and I can't believe how old he is...I was freshman in high school when he was born! He's the typical adolescent and drives me crazy!

I suppose that's my life in a nutshell...

Life in the Fast Lane

Okay, this question is for anyone who lives in the St. Louis metropolitan area...
Why is it that I have to go into the RIGHT lane to pass someone going slow in the PASSING lane? I can't figure it out...why are these people in the passing lane? Do they know it's a passing lane? Do they know that the slow lane is the one farthest to the right? I suppose not, or I wouldn't have to wonder...I'm really starting to detest driving! I told Jason that I need a chauffeur - too bad I'm not rich! Maybe I need some anti-anxiety medicine or people just NEED TO LEARN HOW TO DRIVE! The killer is that cops are constantly giving the people who are speeding the tickets, well...does it ever occur to anyone that the moron in the passing lane doing 55 in a 60 mph zone causes people (who are actually, I don't know, paying attention to the road) to go crazy!?!?!? These people are either on the phone chatting away like they haven't talked to the person on the phone for 30 years (and I'm sure it's someone they just talked to a few hours ago!!) or they're looking out the side window like there's something really exciting that's going to pop up and just surprise everyone! Then, you have to love the ladies who put their makeup on in the car on their way to work - while in the passing lane! Then again, there's also the guys that are shaving while TRYING to drive in the passing lane. I guess the main problem is...they're in the passing lane and they're NOT PASSING ANYONE! And, on top of that, they refuse to get over for someone coming up behind them! I say we create an Autobahn here! Has anyone ever driven in Germany? I have and it's the most wonderful experience ever! People get out of your way, no one stops to rubberneck at an accident (which I've never actually seen an accident on the Autobahn) and you can actually get to where you're going on time! It's wonderful...

Okay, I'll stop now, I'm starting to get angry again...

Creative Memories

Hey, if anyone is looking (by chance) for a Creative Memories Consultant, here I am!

Just thought I'd throw that out there - see my website

Okay, I have a headache so I'm getting away from this computer for a little bit!

Dead Like Me

Okay, this will probably be pretty quick - but during my sad, boring weekend, I found a new favorite show! "Dead Like Me" is a series on Showtime and I love it! I just sat there yesterday and last night and watched episodes 15-21 on Charter OnDemand! I think J likes it too! I may be morbid, but oh well, everyone's gotta be something!
