Water
You are water. You’re not really organic; you’re
neither acidic nor basic, yet you’re an acid
and a base at the same time. You’re strong
willed and opinionated, but relaxed and ready
to flow. So while you often seem worthless,
without you, everything would just not work.
People should definitely drink more of you
every day.

Ok, were to start. everything has mostly returned back to normal. School, Work all that sort of thing. I get a call letting me know that my dad didn’t have a good time while he was here and was in fact upset with me because of a misunderstanding. This is fine actually, misunderstandings happen its inherent to being human. The thing that is still nagging me is he didn’t come to me and say anything in fact he still hasn’t. I haven’t spoken directly with him since I drove him to the airport. I spoke with my mom about it and, well seeing how she feels about him wasn’t very generous towards him. So I have this feeling that that was it and he being who I’ve always been told he is, will just go on his way.

On another rather disturbing note I got a call yesterday while in my Dreamweaver class with this information:

Woman found dead was a transient
ARCADIA — A woman found dead in Arcadia County Park was identified
Tuesday as Christine Nugent, 33. Nugent’s body was discovered near the
400 block of South Santa Anita Avenue about 7:30 a.m. Monday, said Lt.
Emil Moldovan of the Coroner’s Office. Nugent was a transient who had been arrested recently on suspicion of being drunk in public, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Josie Woolum
said. No information was released about a possible cause of death. An autopsy
is pending, Moldovan said.

well, Christin was not a transient she had a roomate, who had to identify her. Christin was also my cousin. She was born 3 months after my sister. She ,her brother, my sister and I grew up together. My sister and I just went to her brothers wedding last Spring. I am the oldest of course. I’m not even sure how you deal with something like this. I feel like I don’t how I feel about this. There is an ongoing investigation, so they won’t release her body back to the family. I’m trying to go about things as normally as possible. Oh yeah and I got news today that December 31st will be my last day working for the city. I’m fine with the last bit, I love my job but I’m ok having to leave it in January. The position may open up again and I know that I would be welcome.

I enjoyed having my dad visit but I’m glad thhings are returning to there normal routine. No sooner did he leave then I get a cold, which I’ve managed to get rid of with large does of zinc, grapefruit juice and sleep. My Perl class is proving to be much more challenging that I had orginally though it would be. My first assignment is due tomorrow and I’m no where near ready with it. My photoshop and dreamweaver class, although there is a lot of reading aren’t nearly as much of a brain drain as Perl.

Work is going, it feels weird with my altered schedule. I go in work for a few hours and leave. I use the down time to try and read and study.

I had made some changes to the way money is handled. I use to manage everything, which as anyone doing the bills knows can be stressful. Well, M now handles his esmokes orders now and he mentioned last night after having to juggle money, how much better he understood what kind of stress I had been going through it felt really nice to be acknowledged.

I woke up this morning and I have a splitting headache. argh11 I took some asprin and I’m just waiting for them to kick in. I’m not going in to work until later this morning if at all. I’m afraid I”ve been stretching myself thin what with school and work and guests being here. Its just a matter of adjusting to the new schedule.

Yesterday was invigorating. I had work all day, but it just flew by. I had two classes last night, working on a web team with my oh so hunky teacher, and Dreamweaver. I’m really enjoying the Dreamweaver and the Photoshop class (that ones tonight). I got home, dead tired even with a 6pm grande latte. Mike surprised me and had made hamburger helper and salad for me. I ate watch a bit of TV with dad and Mike and then headed to bed. I watched a bit of the VP Pres. debate. It really is my first opportunity to get to see John Edwards. I like him, he was strong and direct. I can’t say enough how much I really like that BOTH Kerry and he are standing up to the bullshit lie that Saddam had anything at all to do with 9/11. That was and is such a goddamn smoke screen, the current administration has used to avoid dealing with the real issues here in the states. Well I need to get my day going, its already 6;45. I have work til 12 then a quick lunch and school til 9pm tonight. I’m catching the new rhythm of school/work

Monday morning its very foggy and grey out. I think I’ve adjusted to to my new schedule (work/school). I’m enjoying having my dad here. I think this is going to be the last visit he makes here for awhile. Today is school and work. Its my short day, only til 3:15pm, however I have a lot of reading and studying to do. I think one of the things that I like espcially about my classses this quarter is that they are more hands on, less theoretical. I have always learned more by doing than by listening or reading. Mike and I have come up with a new way to handle the bills and money, which I’m hoping will help us both out around those issues in our friendship. The summer is definately over here in seattle, no more last gasps left I think. Its taken a decidely colder turn in the evening. I should probably turn over the garden and plant some bulbs for springtime. I’d like to have more fresh herbs this year. tomatos of course and cukes as well. I’m glad that I got at least one tomato out of the tomato plant. well, I need to brush and get going. I’m back up to 245, bahh. the funny thing is that my pants and shirts are all loose on me. I think it must be muscle, at least in my legs (from all of the hill climbing)
