The Days of MY Life

Nov. 6th, 2016

12:20 am - Just...stuff

I just figure it's been a while, I should say something. So...Lan has been looking into getting a real job. He applied for Pizza Hut, seems he wants to be a delivery driver again. But that's not the only thing. Terry, his landscaper-boss, had Lan out turning off sprinkler systems and told Lan about a job opportunity. He said that every year he had to get an inspector from the state to inspect every sprinkler system to make sure none of the water is going back into the water supply. So Lan did all the research on it. He would have to take a week-long class that costs $295 if he goes to Kennewick, or $680 if he takes it in Auburn. Since $400 probably wouldn't cover the travel costs to take the Kennewick class, we'll have to spend more (there are more expensive classes too.) Then he has to take a test and pay for his license. He also found out that he would have to have a diploma or GED, neither of which he has. So he started taking online GED courses. I haven't seen him this motivated in a long time. He must be feeling better, hooray! Him feeling crappy and unmotivated has become normal to the point that I didn't notice it until it changed. I'm glad it has.

I've been watching a lot of My Cat from Hell. My gaydar must be off, because I thought he was gay. So I checked if he was married, and he is, to someone who is a woman. It was cute, they got married at a no kill animal shelter, with their dog for a best man and a donkey for a flower girl. He seems like a nice guy and I like his show.

*sigh* What else? I voted. For some reason, Lan's ballot came with a green postage-paid return envelope, while mine came with a red postage-due return envelope. Everything else was exactly the same, so I don't understand why they want me to pay for the priveledge of voting but not Lan. Lan had me vote for him. Mostly I just read all the things and told him what the initiatives were about. I mostly read the statement for and the statement against and if I have any questions I'll go back to the inititive. I figure that's more informed than a lot of voters (unfortunately) who just read what's on the ballot. I'll also look at things I've liked or not liked and seen who voted for/against things. So I didn't like either candidate listed for senator (which makes me sad, because Patty Murray is a big proponent of MS research funding) so I wrote in Sarah. I know she's not interested in the job, but I couldn't think of anyone who lives here that would be better at it. So if the unthinkable happens (so unthinkable that I have no clue what it could possibly be) and my ballot is drawn out of a hat to decide who our next senator is, she can blame me.

Watching Seahawks Saturday Night brings to mind my inner struggle with my fandom. I do like watching the Seahawks, but feel a bit guilty about the damage that's done to the players. I know that when they get to Seahawks level they're well paid, but most people that play football never make it that far. College level players are expected to play just as hard, and get injured just as much. Even in high school, my brother broke his ankle playing football.  He might have gotten a concussion at some point as well. They're talking tonight about how the rules have changed, how penalties are being given for the most injurious things, and that helps. I hope it helps, because it feels wrong to get entertainment from something that is permanently injuring prople.

Anyhow....GO SEAHAWKS!

P.S. I'm really glad that Rich didn't want the Chromebook. Thanks so much to my sister for offering it to me rather than sending it back. I use it almost every day. *mwah*

06:49 am - Meatloaf--Anything for Love

Wow, that's a long song. Long song. heh

I'd Do Anything for Love
By Meat Loaf


And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again
Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you
As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do
Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls
Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep
As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do
Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...
But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?
I can do that
I can do that
Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?
I can do that
Oh no, I can do that
Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?
I can do that
I can do that
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?
I can do that
Oh no, I can do that
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on
I won't do that
I won't do that
I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around
I won't do that
No, I won't do that
Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Wow, not one of my friends has posted anything in August. I think I'll break the trend. I've been thinking some things that I want to get out and it's pretty clear that no one is really here anymore. My brain isn't exactly working right it seems. I don't think Lan's is either. He suggested today that we get a divorce. Because he thinks he's dying and doesn't want to leave me with bills...

So this is a draft that I started in August. We have since gone to the Dr, and Lan isn't dying. Well, not imminently anyhow. Now I'm just going to post it so that there's some action here. How ya'll doing? Hello? Anyone???

Current Mood: hmmmmm
Current Music: Maury on TV. WTH Lan?

01:39 am - My mouth

It gets me in SO much trouble. One would think I like the taste of feet considering how often my own are in my mouth. Now Lan's upset and all I wanted was to be close to him. I tried to go about it in other ways, but asking outright for what I wanted (which I hear is what men want?) was seen as being selfish and demanding. I'm very frustrated. Maybe it will be better tomorrow. Lan said something he's never said to me before. "I'm going to sleep on the couch." I don't know if that will actually happen, we'll see when he comes in from smoking.

Current Mood: upset, sad, and horny
