Doesn't surprise me at all. :D

Am experimenting with new layouts for my LJ. My previous one was great, but a bit hard to read on darker monitors, so I got tired of squinting at work and decided to do something about it.

First temp shift at the new job tomorrow. **eeps!**

It's the holiday season. I just made white chocolate chip cookies. For no other reason than I thought we'd need some.

My apartment now smells like cookies. It's awesome. :D

I am about to go to bed after approximately eleven hours of work and commuting.

I have to be at my other work in eight hours. Followed by another shift at the station immediately after I'm done.

If I'm incommunicado, this is because I am collapsing against my husband due to extreme exhaustion.

Me go ded now. **THUNK.**

This message brought to you by: two part-time jobs with crazy hours.

Last night [livejournal.com profile] menkure and I went to see Eagle Eye, because Menk wanted to see it and I wanted to do things like not be alone in the apartment. (It's been a rough couple days, long story.)

...I must say, I haven't enjoyed a movie like that in ages.

Spoilers! If you haven't seen the movie, it would be wise not to click this. Once again... SPOILERS. )

For those who don't want spoiled; go see the movie. It's awesome, has enough suspense for all, twists and turns abound, and even with its flaws, one of the best two hours I've spent in a theater in recent memory.

For those of you wondering where I've been the last week, my grandmother died this past Sunday. The funeral was Thursday.

I'm taking the whole thing rather well, all things considered. These last two years weren't nice to my grandmother, as she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma not too long before she met my husband for the first time. Multiple myeloma, for those who don't know what it is, is cancer of the plasma cells, and rarely does someone diagnosed with the disease live more than two years past the diagnosis date.

I guess the strange thing is that I'm not really sad about the whole thing, at least, not in the traditional 'weeping my eyes out because my grandmother is dead and gone' sense. I mean, I'm sad that I'll not get to see my grandmother again until I die. I'll miss her terribly, and have since she passed. But I wouldn't wish her back; not the way she was when she died, anyway.

If I could have my grandma from five years ago back, the one that cooked like a fiend and went walking for two miles every day and did water aerobics and drove to see everything her grandchildren ever did... if I could have that grandmother back, I would wish with all my heart.

As it is, I'm glad that my grandmother is free of pain, and is with her Lord as well as her husband and family that passed before her.

But I'll miss you, Grandma Jane. Love you so much. And always will.

Random note of the day:

Whilst unpacking boxes, I may have flailed and broken my right pointer finger. I'm not sure yet, but man, it's looking pretty puffy. o.O

On August 9, 2008, I married my best friend and love, Aaron Michael Elliott.

I couldn't possibly be any happier. :D

**temporary re-poof**

I'm now about 99% moved into the new place in CR. Took almost 24 hours of my fiancé and my parents helping me with cars and lifting, but it's mostly done! Now I just need to do several things to get the house in shape.

-unpack books
-unpack clothes
-unpack random stuff
-buy step stool and other things from Target
-unwrap gifts
-write thank-you notes
-sign up for Mediacom
-call and transfer utilities to my name
-find calendar so I know when I work
-rearrange furniture so it works in new apartment
-turn in cable box and modem to IC Mediacom
-pay Mediacom bill
-look at insurance policies
-buy groceries
-invite people to new house to visit!

Big list, and rather random. I'll update it as I get internet access; right now, I'm posting from work. :D

**poof**

I am disappearing for the next several days, if not longer.

Do not be alarmed. I am simply moving. I will reappear again once I have Intarweb Access once more. :D

My personality type: the spontaneous idealist. Take the free iPersonic personality test!

I'm occasionally a little more introverted than this, but.... for the most part, pretty accurate. **goes back to being bored at work**

So, remember all those jobs I applied for?

I GOT AN INTERVIEW!!!!

It's at Yellowbook, so it'll be a sales position, but right now, I'm taking what I can get.

The interview's Wednesday. Wish me luck!!!

I generally don't get a chance to sleep in very often. Thanks to my last semester's "must be up by 7:30 or I'm screwed" schedule, my body isn't quite used to this "Oh, I can wake up at nine and still be okay" malarkey I've got going on now that I no longer have to take classes evar again.

But still. I was looking forward to waking up at 8:30, only to be woken up at seven by **WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM WHAM** outside my window. Apparently, the maintenance man thinks none of us sleep in. EVAR.

And he's still going at it. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO PUT UP AN AWNING, YOU MORON?!?!

I have maybe two or three paragraphs left on my final paper of my senior year of college.

All right. I am appealing to the my online friends list, for Aaron and I have run into a spot of "Iunno" in the wedding plans. Namely, we're entirely unsure of what sort of music to have at the actual wedding itself.

Right now, we've settled on "Pachelbel's Canon in D" for the wedding 'march' piece, and possibly "I Will Be Here" by Steven Curtis Chapman as a solo. However, I think we need two more songs that are instrument-only, and possibly one more to be sung as a solo/duet/whatever.

I'm opening the floor to suggestions. If you can provide a sample of the music (youtube video, clip somewhere on the web, whatever), Aaron and I would be forever grateful. We just have no clue on what other songs are good for this type of thing; we're both kinda clueless. ^^;;;

I'm amazed at how quickly my family can plan things like weddings. It's been a little over two weeks since I got engaged, and I've already got a place, a date, a reception place, and a pastor. Holy crap.

Okay. The wedding's going to be held in Corning, on August 9th of this year. Soon, I know, but it's the only summer we'll have when Aaron and I are both out of school for the next couple years. It'll be held in the Corning Presbyterian Church.... and yes, I realize I'm Methodist. I just don't like the Methodist church in Corning, for personal reasons that have nothing to do with the congregation. The reception's going to be held at the Corning Armory, which is non-air-conditioned but pretty nice.

And the guy who's marrying us is Pastor Dean McPhearson, the man who helped me tell my folks about everything going on with me as a teenager.

So. I'm getting married in a Presbyterian church, by a Methodist minister, to a Catholic.

....I find that incredibly amusing.
