What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)


You have a Northern accent. That could either be the Chicago/Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo accent (easily recognizable) or the Western New England accent that news networks go for.

11:02 pm - an actual weekend
I had a crazy drunk night on saturday. I haven't done one those in a long time. It was fun though. Played lots of pool. I won 2 games and lost on the third. Probably because I was getting drunker as I played... yeah.

Then there was riding around in some kids car. Me having to pee, so we stopped by my house because we were in the neighborhood. We were going to go to a Brookline party and crash it, but the kid couldn't find it. Tim and I got bored and tired so when the kid parked we jumped out, got some snack food and wondered around. There some peeing in allies. Then someone threw a water balloon from a window at as and it hit our backs. Tim went into the front door. It was weird because there was no lights on in the front entrance. Tim came back out 2 minutes later and his hand was bleeding. He didn't know how he did it. We grabbed some paper towels at a corner store and got in a taxi.

Well, well, well. The live journal thing. Who does this anymore? I can't remember the last time I posted... Everyone does that myspace thing. Meh. If I can hardly get into this, I am not going to get into that.

I don't even know what to say on this thing.

I got a new cat. Her name is Maggie Moo, but I shortened it to Mamoo. She will be one on June 15. She is all black with a white spot on her chest. Wait a minute... that's what Vixen looks like! You bettcha! They look like sisters. Mamoo has siamese in her though, so her hair is smoother, ears bigger, eyes pointier, and she has a ring of blue around her pupile in her green eyes. They aren't really getting along yet... sigh...

Yeah, hmmmm.

Tim is going to school in the fall. I'm not sure if I had mentioned that in another post. He's going to MECA and they have given him pretty much the whole 4 year tuition in different scholarships. I'm super proud of him.

Yup, I think that's it.

It's been so slow at work lately. My boss came in today to see if we were lying to her and not doing our jobs. She got to see how no one was coming in the store. Maybe she'll get off our backs a little bit. Meh.

Tim got a job at the Harvard Library. It pays big $$$! It's actually for Google, but that's all hush hush. He was working at one of the libraries in Harvard Square, so he would stop in and say hi to me or we would go get coffee. It was nice having him in the area! But, starting monday he is going to the Harvard Medical library which is in the Longwood area... no where near me... poo.

My dad sent me a cd with 5000+ ringtones for motorola phones that you download onto your phone. Whoa! Soooooo coooool. I haven't had time to really sit down and go through them. I threw on the simpsons and muppets theme song real quick and eye of the tiger. Oh hell yeah!

Tim and I saw 300 shortly after it came out. Wow. Just wow. If you haven't seen it yet, you have to see it before it leaves the big screen. I will defiantly get the dvd when it comes out, but I'm soooooo glad that I saw it on the big screen. I'm sure it's much more powerful like that.

current mood: chipper

6:44 pm - rain rain come back when I'm in bed...
I love being curled up in bed when it's raining. But, because of that, it makes getting out of bed to go to work even harder. At least it's not snowing. But, knowing our weather it will in two days.

I got my yearly bonus, my monthly bonus, and my state taxes last week and I put them all in a new savings account. When I get my federal taxes, they will go there as well. Then I have to tell myself that I don't have that savings account and not touch that money. Ooooooo... so... hard... to... do!

I'm thinking about getting my eyes examined and getting glasses. If it's not to much. I'm not sure how much my insurance covers for things like that. I stopped wearing glasses in 2002. I've had glasses since I was in kindergarten. I occasionally wear reading glasses when my eyes are tired and I'm trying to do computer work or reading. My eye sight actually improved in 3 years (last time I went in for an exam). I'm thinking about this because the other day Tim and I were playing Monopoly and I couldn't read the properties that were on the other side of the board very well. It was later in the day, but still... I felt old.

current mood: indescribable

I saw Reno 911: Miami with tim yesterday. If you love the show, you have to go see this movie! So, so funny! And there is good stuff after the credits, so don't leave when they start rolling.

I got this amazing purple leather bag from work made by one of my favorite bag companies, RO. I want to carry it everywhere, but don't because I don't want wreck it. Not that it isn't well made. I got it for $140 and it normally ran at $495. Woot woot!

Vixen stopped throwing up so much. I've been putting digestive enzymes in her wet food every morning. It seems to be doing her well. They say that it helps cats gain some weight too. I haven't noticed that yet, but it's only been two weeks. It's weird smashing the enzymes into her food because it's a white powder. I feel like I'm trying to slip her some drugs.

My brother got into a car accident and totaled his car. He's alright though. I guess it's pretty icy in northern mich. I also heard that a big storm was going to hit michigan today. Hope that goes well for all of you! Don't worry, after it passes over you, it's heading straight for me.

I wonder if it's actually going to be light out when I leave work today at 6...

10:31 am - Harvard Ave? You mean Wind Tunnel Ave!
I thought my knee caps were going to fall off this morning waiting for the bus! There were 25mph winds making it feel like -10 degrees. My legs are still tingley from all the wind abuse! I wish I wore my long johns this morning. The warm laptop on my legs feels good right now.

I just want to be at tim's house eating chinese food and watching TV right now. The banks are closed, why can't we be closed?! I wonder if I get time and a half today...

Tim and I went out to the bar last night and we felt like the old people there. We were surrounded by all these youngins skankin up. It was actually kind of gross. So we left the bar before it closed like the old people we are.

current mood: cold

I fell asleep on the bus this morning and woke up instantly when the bus stopped at my stop. It was weird.

Tim, Dan, and Tom are all having breakfast at Twin Donuts right now. I want to be there too! They have the best breakfast sandwiches and their coffee is yum yum yummy! Maybe I'll go to ABP soon...

Tim and I decided that we're going to go gamble in NJ for my birthday. We both have never been to a casino. I don't know why he pick NJ, but that sounds good to me.

I just got done reading Bret Easton Ellis's new book (it came out 1 or 2 years ago) "Lunar Park" and it was amazing! Everyone should read it! I read it in about 3 days because I got so absorbed into it. Now I'm reading a book Levi bought me called "A short history of nearly everything." It's quite mind blowing so far and I'm only on page 11!

I don't want to be at work right now.

current mood: dirty

12:16 pm - I love the MBTA. No wait. No I don't
I love when you have to go to downtown Boston in the morning and it takes an hour and a half because everyone else and their mom are going as well. Then when you have a scheduled time to be there, you leave with that hour and a half to spare and you catch both trains as they pull up and they speed through their stops. Hey great, now I have an hour to wander the MGH area in 20 degree weather. Woot woot.

5:43 pm - forgot to mention tim's art show...
Tim and I had a blast in NYC. But, when do you not have a good time there!? He restocked his sold out t-shirts at his art show and I got to see it. I hadn't seen all the new t-shirt designs until then. It was so cool to see them hanging up!

We wondered Manhattan and stopped by Dan's work to see him. We got baked ziti pizza. Yum yum yum! Why can't you get that anywhere else?! Why only NYC? We didn't really want to do anything else and Tim's bad ankle was bothering him, so we jumped on the train and went to the house. We sat around watching TV until the boys came home from work. We all went to the liquor store and spent the rest of the night consuming it.

There was more bummin around Manhattan the next day and then we got back on the chinatown bus. Back to Boston we went.

I'm going to try to take more trips to NYC this year. Rhoda was going to come with us, but got really sick. So I still haven't taken a NYC trip with him yet. That must be done this year!

I got done with all my work a lot sooner than I thought. Meh. Now I have to putz around for another hour...

current mood: bored

10:24 am - I <3 mr. tim
I have the best boyfriend ever!

Tim took me out to dinner the other night to this REALLY nice restaurant. We even got a free round of drinks because they said the food took too long to come out to us. I didn't mind. I was having a good time with Tim. He mentioned something about going back there for Vday because they are doing a special dinner that night and you get free champagne.

Before we went out to dinner, he gave me a gift. He said it was a Xmas present he couldn't afford to get in December and that's why I was getting it now. He bought me a digital camera! The one and only thing that I wanted and no one got me. I wanted to cry! It meant so much to me!

I've got so much work to do right now and I can't get motivated to do it right now. It's 10 degrees out with a 45 mph wind. I'm nice and warm in the back with my tea and the computer. All I would need is my cat. Which I left at home with my warm boyfriend both cuddled up in my bed. That's the worst.

We had this super duper hot chicken wings last night at my house with Chris and I keep burping and tasting them. Uhg. Gross. Nothing is masking it. And I still have some leftovers.

I finally got the black cowboy boots that I've wanted. And they were on sale! And I bought some tan ones too because they were on sale too! Ooops! When I brought them home, I lined them up with my other cowboy boots. Tim thought I was a crazy person. Well, I guess I am. But, I gave my old black ones to Chris since he wears an 8 and we share a passion for cowboy boots. I think I'm going to toss the snake skin ones because they are ripping in the back. Or give them to Chris! He's a poor art student. I was surprised he fit in them. I thought he would have bigger feet than me. Guess not. One of my new pair is actually a size 11. Whoa! I normally wear a 10, but they fit great!

Rahhhhh! Big foot attacking!

11:36 am - gurgle... meh... wha?
Too much drinking... wait?! Is that even possible? Nah... But, it doesn't make being at work right now fun. I can't wait to go home, take a shower, and go to bed. Well, shit, I have to wash my dishes and pack. Nooooo!

Tomorrow I'm going to nyc for a couple of days. Tim has his art show up and I want to see it. He's going too (today though) because he sold out of the t-shirts he first brought. Right now he's crankin out some new ones and then he's leaving. I wanted to post the website of the gallery, but I can't find them on the net for the life of me! It's called Earth to Mars and it's on Park Ave. That's all I know. Meh.

Rhoda was going to come with me, but he got that horrible flu that's been going around. I'm so glad I haven't got sick. Everyone who has had it, says it's so bad. You gotta eat your Flintstones vitamins every morning people!

I got my hair cut a couple days ago. I chopped off the last of the dyed hair. I am all natural now! Woot woot! It's quite short right now. I can't wait for it to grow out just a little bit more, so it's this style, but shaggier. I think it's going to take me 5 years to grow it out to the length that I want it at. I need to start eating more jello!

current mood: sleepy

You gotta love the crazies that come out when the sun goes down. I'm having a good time at the coffee shop on my computer with a cup of tea and this local crazy sits down a couple tables down from me and starts talking to no one. His conversation then turns into an argument... with no one. At one point he was telling off a ni**er and then it turned to a "dirty jew."

I wanted to get out of the house, but at this point, I'm ready to go back.

Tomorrow morning at 6:30am is inventory. Woo. I hope it goes smoothly. Then when I get out, I'm getting my hair cut. I'm going to go in there and tell her to cut off all the dyed blond that is left. Then I will have one color hair, all natural. But, let's see how long that lasts.

current mood: mellow

6:00 pm - back in beantown...
Back to workin hard and livin it up in the big city! It's good to be home... away from the parents... and with my kitty... and my boy! Vixen refused to leave my side the day after I got home. Good thing I just laid around and did nothing with her and Tim.

Tim busted up his ankle really bad while I was gone. It took him 30 minutes to get to my house the night I came home. He lives 4 blocks away! But, then I babied him the next day and, of course, it got better. It's amazing what ice will do. Dr. Girlfriend (but with a sexy voice) in the hizouse. (if anyone gets that, kuddos to you!)

I want to cut my hair. I want to cut the rest of the dyed blond off. But, then it would be really short... I don't want it to be that short... meh.

current mood: blank

4:54 pm - so quickly, the trip is over...
To all the muxonions that I did not get to see or a chance to call, I am sorry. My week turned out to be a little busier than I thought. Time flies. I wish I could stay longer, but I will be flying out tomorrow. And working on tuesday... yeah... Maybe you should all get together and plan an east coast trip!

For those I did get to see, I had a wonderful time and will always remember the times I have with you. And look foward to any east coast trips that you might have planned. *wink wink*

12:41 pm - what the fuck
There is something very sad about me being at work right now. It's 11:30am on New Year's day and on Tim's birthday more importantly! But, here I sit. Not a soul on the streets. I wonder if that has anything to do with it being New Year's day or the fact that it's pouring fucking rain out. Hmmmmmm... The Harvard news stand isn't even open. People don't need their paper, but god knows they need their pens!

I will be touching down in muskegon airport tomorrow afternoon. I look forward to seeing all you muxonians. I want to apologize now to all who I might not get to see. I think it will be a busy week for me. And it doesn't help that I'm spending some of those days in GR. Sigh... Gotta see the fam...

11:30 am - why can't we dress up more than once a year!?
I think I have fully recovered from the weekend. I feel normal again.

Friday when I got out of work, I ran home and changed into my costume. I went to tim's to meet him and hannah and then we headed off to tony's party. He had lots and lots of jello shots! Many of them went in my belly. He also had a frozen drink mixer. The kind you see in a convenient store with slushy stuff twirling around in it. He had orange and red. Red was yummy! It was a fun party. I got hit on many times, but tim only came to my rescue twice. He said later that night that he gets a kick from seeing pimply boys trying to pick me up, knowing that they have no chance and that he's the one who gets to go home with me. If someone more threatening comes on to me, he's ready to swoop in. Boys are so weird.

After peeling myself out of bed the next morning, I headed to tim's to wake him and hannah so we could get on the NYC bus. At least we got a four hour nap on the bus! It was pouring rain in Boston, but sunny and nice in NYC. We got to Henry's and hung out since the party wasn't going to start for another couple hours. Henry worked on his and tim's costume some more. Henry made tim a full Captain America outfit that is amazing! It's so detailed and accurate to the comic. Henry made himself a full Cobra Commander outfit. He made the coat and pants from scratch! And the hood! Oh the hood was soooooo perfect. It hung just right. The pictures from that night are priceless. My favorite was the "fighting" ones. I had tim and henry pose a fight for me. Captain America vs Cobra Commander. I wonder who would actually win that fight. Probably the Cap. Then we did pictures of me as Domino coming after tim or henry. I'm going to have to say that Domino would lose either of those fights. Meh, I was still hot. Everyone wanted to touch my bullets.

Tim found me passed out in a chair in the back yard and dragged me inside and put me to bed at god knows when in the morning. I woke up at 3pm the next day not knowing how I got where I was. Everyone else had gotten up earlier and started drinking again. By the time I awoke they were at a dinner down the street. I went and met them and we all ate yummy greasy dinner breakfast. They had the best sausage! We then watched TV for the rest of the day. Ahhhhhhh.

Tim and I got up real early the next morning to get the first bus back to Boston. I ran home when we got back, changed, and then went to work. That wasn't a fun day at work. I recovered mostly on tuesday, my one day off, by doing nothing, absolutely nothing. But then that was halloween, so at 8 I started drinking with tim. Drunk til 3, then back to bed.

I <3 halloween.

current mood: peaceful

I had an amazing halloween weekend, but I'm still recovering from it. I'm not in the right mind to be able to sit down and write about it. I can hardly type.

I want a shower and to go to bed.


Got to see Joe Scott on monday. His band played at the Middle East. They are great. I miss joe. And then that makes me miss ben.

current mood: tired
