I went to the dentist again today. My front tooth has been quite painful for 3 weeks. The dentist decided that I am grinding and asked if I was stressed. Since I started the new job 4 weeks ago, and I frequently wake up in the middle of the night and stress out about the next day, I would say yes, I'm a bit stressed. So as soon as the thoughts in my head calm, the tooth pain will calm as well.

Now I'm home on a Friday and it isn't even noon! Hooray. I plan to do the following, in no particular order:

Watch yesterday's Survivor

- Go to Hollywood Video and rent a few dvd's from Season 5 of 6ft Under. (why doens't blockbuster carry this? I have a coupon for them... they only have season 1 and 2.
- Purchase or just price new tires for the truck, at least $100 per tire??? Crazy.
- Go to the gym.
- Deposit a check at the bank.
- Eat
- Sleep
- Grocery Shop
- Watch crappy but oh so good television

Push the button, don't push the button

I created a great post in my head at the gym. The above was the title. Now that I'm home, showered and at the computer I can't remember what it was I had to say.

It wasn't about LOST, from which the quote came, but I am looking forward to LOST tonight. Lasagne, Katrina and treats, not the least of which is cheesecake. It is from Little Tony's, which is a far cry from juniors in Brooklyn, but pretty damn good.

I watched one episode of the Puffy making the band and he made the band hopefuls walk to Juniors from Queens to fetch him cheesecake. I would have eaten the yumminess and said FU Puffy get your own damn cheesecake.

I do believe I have nearly gotten my way with changing my hours back to early am. Almost.

Flamming lips!

The Flamming Lips. I love them. I love songs 3 and 4 on the Yoshimi album. I listen to those 2 songs nearly everytime I go to the gym, twice. Lovely Katrina purchased 4 tickets to see them in July! Hip Hip Hooray. She may have her equally lovely sister Christina fly down to join us for the festivities. We will also make robot tees to wear. I’m not sure that Matt will want to wear one, he may not be down with the pink robot defeating homemade shirts.

We watched the documentry about the band not too long ago and we might have to watch again, just for the heck of it.

We leave for Alaska in 56 days. 56 DAYS! 39 days if you don’t count the weekends, which I don’t.

I only count days that I have to work. Which in case you wondered, they hired someone for my old job. Yet I still don’t have a new job. I feel like a broken record cause everyday someone congratulates me on my new job, I reply: I’m just filling in, the job hasn’t been offered to me. I wish I liked the new job, so maybe it is a good thing that it has not be offered to me. I find endless data entry dreadful.

My new work ours prevent me from blogging as much. It is probably just an excuse, cause maybe I don't have anything to say.

I don't like my new hours. I did try a new method of manipulation today with my boss. When she inquired on how the hours are impacting my personal life I replied with, I am so productive early in the morning that I feel like I am not giving my best to the job. Or something along those lines, it sounded good. She said that we'll talk about it. Whatever that means. It isn't like it is really my job so what difference does it make?

I did put up all my personal pictures on my cubby wall today. I get to look at my handsome husband, super cute pets and pretty pictures of flowers blooming in Joshua Tree all day. I also put in the storage room leftovers of the previous persons crap. Every single day I dread more and more the prospect of having her return to do additional training.

New LOST tomorrow. Blow Out starts again tonight! Jonathan is such a dick, Matt LOVES to hate him. I'm not so into American Idol as in the past, even on DVR it requires too much of my time.

My HGTV show airs again tomorrow. I'm lazy and have not done any updates to my site. Again no valid excuses.

I am reading Random Family. Some of it brings back vivid memories of living in NYC. I only wish it took place in a different part of the city so I can see things in my head. 181st. in Washington Heights would have been perfect. Maybe I should write that book.

I think that I might want to become a Buddhist.

It is the weekend

We are re-watching the first season of LOST.

We will go hiking and hopefully whale watching tomorrow. Not from a boat but while standing in the sand. It better not rain.

I feel like I have nothing to say, oh well.

I do have another dental nightmare I can share. My co-worker's daughter had a routine dental procedure. She started to bleed really heavily and aspirated on her blood. She is in a coma and isn't expected to survive. She is 16.

I'm not sure what the hell is going on in my department of 200. It seems a lot of death and bodily destruction have occurred in the last 12 months.

Matt and I are gearing up for Alaska. We purchased some fancy pants hiking boots at REI last weekend.

Today we drove out to Angeles National Highway and hiked to Switzer falls. With Emma. I think about four miles total. We have had a fair amount of rain so the water was rapid and at times difficult to cross, but we made it. Emma probably did the best.

I love the new boots. They are comfy and kept my feet super dry! Even when standing in water. The only bad thing, dude these things must weigh a ton. My legs are nearly dead, OMG. We have a long way to go before we are ready to do serious hiking in Alaska. We'll make it. I've even gone to the gym every other day. Who am I?

I think overall Emma is the worst off right now, poor baby. She took her sweet time climbing the stairs after her walk tonight.

My little kitten in the bass drum. Isn't she a cutie pie?
