Writer's Block: Work, work, work
Would you rather work at a job that you enjoy but pays little or work at a miserable job that pays a lot?

I'm already at a job that makes me miserable but pays pretty well. I suppose if I could find a job that I really liked, but paid less, so long as my bills get paid, I'd be happy.

Writer's Block: Holiday blues
What is the most emotionally challenging aspect of the holidays for you? Do you enjoy this season more or less than you did as a child?

I think I enjoy it less, at least this year, than I did as a child.
The most emotionally challenging aspect this year is that this is the first year my family won't be all together. Mom moved away and won't be coming up for Christmas. My sister and her husband are going to his relative's house.
This will be the first year I'm having it at my place, which could be nice, but my place is small, and I'm really not sure how it will all turn out.
Boyfriend's mother offered to cook the dinner at my place and I'm kinda iffy how the whole thing will work out. My kitchen is small, his mom is kinda pushy, and I can just hear her complain the whole time.
I invited my dad over. Our relationship has never been that great, and I won't have my sister there for support. Hopefully with him being in recovery (from alcoholism) will be a good thing with him personality wise.

Here's looking forward to New Years. I'll be up in Boston for the Flyers game. That should make up for the stress of Christmas this year.

Writer's Block: I need my space ...
Do you tend to get turned off when someone you start dating seems too interested too soon? How do you politely tell someone to stop being so clingy?

Yeah I had a guy like this. It only lasted 3 weeks. After the first date he was telling me how lucky he was to find me, that he loves me, etc... It made me really uncomfortable since I've only known him a short time before we went out. So I told him the best I could that I wanted to back up a little and get to know each other as friends. He didn't take that too good. He stopped talking to me for a while and when he did start talking to me again it was vague. Never did get to know him as a friend either. Oh well. Least the man I'm with now took it nice and slow with me, and I've been with him for 3 years now :)

Email scam
I've never recieved one of these before. As soon as I skimmed over it I knew it was one of those "email scams" where they want your bank account info. Figured I'd share for anyone else who wants a good laugh/knows what it is (though I'm sure you'd all know anyway).

I lubs my boyfriend :3
Col sends me a text today letting me know No Doubt is coming around on June 11. She asks if Shawn and I want to go since she's going to try and buy all the tickets together. So I told her "Hell yeah!" I've been waiting for them to come back around so I'm excited now XD

So despite I already told her yes, I figured I'd better tell Shawn/ask him if he wants to go, though I know he will. So I text him about it, and he writes back that he knows they're coming around. I ask if he wants to go, then he calls me. He tells me he knew yesterday but didn't tell me because he wanted to surprise me for my birthday with tickets. Awwwww.... So unfortunately he can't surprise me, but he will buy the tickets for me ^^ <3's him.

Real update
Shawn and I went to AC this weekend. He got a comped room on a Friday, which just shows how desperate they are. Being in there shows how much business they lost. Friday and Saturday meant good luck getting on a decent slot machine. Now any time you go in there it's usually get your pick. We were doing kinda crappy at first on the slots. Then I had to hit the ladies room, come out and find Shawn on these $.50 machines. I usually don't like going higher than a quarter but I figured I'd give it a try. My first $20 got nothing, but I figured I'd try again. Took my bet up to 3 plays, lost a few, then hit for like $100. Ok, not bad at all, I'll play for a bit more. Got some symbols, and this doubler thing. Not sure how much it hit, Shawn looks over, tells me to look up. I hit for 800 credits. So he's like "you just hit for $400." I'm shocked, kept saying "no I didn't". Saw how much was in the machine, maybe played a couple more, and then stopped. Shawn hit for $200 on that machine, then another $100 on another. I ended up playing some more on other machines, but I came away with a $200 profit. Not bad for a free weekend at Harrah's XD I think Shawn ended up paying for most of the stuff, so he only came back with maybe $50 profit. I bought lunch the next day though, and breakfast today.

Dear guys who put a pair of balls on the back of their pickup trucks,

These make me laugh. Nothing says "I'm compensating for something" like a pair of balls hanging off the back of your pick up truck.

I'm going back to work tomorrow after being furloughed for 2 1/2 months. I'm not really looking forward to it. I've been looking for a new job here and there but nothing extensive. Mostly cause it just seems like there's nothing out there, at least government wise (unless I want to move to another city/state).

Oh well. I've got a big can of Amp waiting for breakfast tomorrow. I know I'm going to have a hard time sleeping tonight, and I'm used to waking up at like 9-10, not 5 :\ And I have class my first week back, so least I don't have to think. *sigh*
