This past week has been about 10 degrees above average for this time of year. We've also been in a heat advisory or warning for the last week. Tomorrow is supposed to be 109. That's seemingly nothing compared to Lake Mead or Death Valley. The high tomorrow at Lake Mead is supposed to be 116 and in Death Valley, 122. Ugh.

By Thursday its supposed to be down to 97, but then by the weekend it'll be back into triple digits. Damn desert heat.

I've been watching a show on what would happen if we had no moon. Some of the theories make sense, but others are just dumb. I've also been giving my own personal commentary on the show. Even though some of the outer space stuff catches my interest, I'm more interested on the animal life here on earth.

I'm almost done with Absolute Fear. I would have been finished last night, but around 3am, I was yawning more than once every 5 minutes and I was having a lot of trouble focusing my eyes on the words. So I finished the chapter I was reading and shut the book. I will be done tonight, though. The only unfortunate thing about it is that I'll need to find another book to read. Time to go raid my sister's collection. I'd go through mine, but its buried in the garage somewhere.

I'll find it one day, but I'd need to climb over a lot of stuff to get to it. There's a small 2ft wide walk-way going from the door into the garage to the garage door. The rest of the two car garage is full of boxes, totes, furnature and other odds and ends. It could take a long while before its discovered and completely "unearthed."

Uhm ... I've just sat here for the last, I dunno, 10, 15 minutes trying to think of something to write about and nothing is coming to me. So I guess I'll write again whenever.

That's how much sleep I got last night ... err, rather this morning. I went to bed at 5am {which seems to be my recently regular "bedtime"} and I was up at 9:30am. I set my alarm for 8am and it woke me up, but I didn't get up with it. My mom woke me up at 9:30 to let me know that she was going to get in the shower and that we'd leave afterwards.

While she was in the shower, I got up and got on the comp for a little bit. When she got out, I went in and got dressed to go out.

I've come to the resolution to lose weight. I need to at this point, if I want the clothes I have to continue to fit me. They still do fit, but barely. So I'm gonna ask my mom's coworker if I can borrow her pool key and pass so that I can go do laps in the complex pool. I'll use the one that's on the opposite end from the office so as not to attract too much attention to myself. And since this is Vegas, I'll be able to keep it up for at least another few months before it gets too cool to go swimming. I'll walk to the apartments; they're right up the road, go do laps for about an hour and then walk home. It would allow me to work out and possibly attempt at getting tan at the same time. If the coworker says yes, I plan on doing this three days a week.

Anywho, back to the day. We went to mom's work first to pick up her check. Afterwards we went to the bank and then headed up north to pay the rent. After the rent was paid we stopped at home real quick so that mom could make a list of things to get at the store. After the store, we came home. She asked me if I wanted to go anywhere else, but I didn't really want to.

That was my exciting day. Ha. Something fairly interesting happened last night. I was texting back and forth with my sister so when my phone alerted me that I had a text, I thought nothing of it. I opeded the phone to see that the text was not from her, but from Stuart. Now, I hadn't talked to him in a few days and it seems to be easier and easier to resist the urge to text him. So it caught me a little off guard.

The gist of the conversation went from me still not having a job to his ankle to his friend coming back to visit for 10 days. When I teased saying that ten days was plenty of time to catch up and have fun, but that I knew how it was to not want something like that to end, his immediate response caught me really off guard and I got annoyed at myself for my reaction. His text stated "you need to come back and visit." It made me smile and be happier than I should have been. I made myself concentrate extra hard on the book that I was reading so that I wouldn't be able to let my mind to get too carried away. The text convo ended with that and I had to resist the urge to ask him why. But I resisted and kept on reading. I'm going to wait till he texts me again, but its going to be on my mind more than it should.

Alright, I think I'm done. I shall write again whenever.

never before
Thursday. 8.30.07 10:58 pm
The last few nights I've been wanting to watch this stand up special on HBO, but I've felt oddly uncomfortable watching it with my mom in the room. The profanity used in the hour long show is incredible ... which is what makes it all the more hilarious. But my mom has never been a fan of profanity and I feel awkward watching the show with her in the room.

Never before have I ever had to worry or think about what I was watching, but now I do. I don't have a door to close. Everything that I watch, anyone can walk into the room at any point in time with no prior warning and see what's on the TV. Let me just tell you how much that blows.

Anywho, I've been wanting to write an entry all day, but I've been having trouble thinking of what to write about. I still don't have anything else write about. Uhm, so I guess I won't.

BTW, the HBO special is Bob Saget: That Ain't Right. If you haven't seen it, you should. Unless of course, you don't want to ruin the image he made for himself by being on Full House. If you want to remain to see him as that person, don't, I repeat don't watch his stand up comedy. His stand up is the complete polar opposite from the show. Here's a small preview ... I don't understand why the one word is bleeped out, but whatev. You should know what's being said anyway.

I only have about half an hour left of alone time. Then I don't get any more until next Monday. I wasted my alone time both yesterday and Monday by sleeping. Today, I only wasted 3/4 of it by sleeping. I got up in time to have two hours of alone time.

When Jean gets home, though, I'm not going to turn my music down. It doesn't seem to bother her too much and right now I'm not playing the techno that I have been the last few days. I had to shut it off yesterday because it had started to bug my mom. I don't really care if it gets on Jean or Steve's nerves. The more that bug them, the sooner they might be compelled to move out. But this is my mom's house so I'll respect her.

I seem to have made my "bedtime" around 5am. The last few nights, that's about the time I've been laying down to sleep. Mostly its because I haven't been getting up very early and because I have trouble putting down a book that has a hold on my intent interest. Oh well. I can only hope that getting a job will regulate my currently irratic sleeping patterns.

As I mentioned, I'm reading the book Absolute Fear. Its got me turning the pages. I keep losing track of time. The only thing that alerts me of what time it is, is when Jean's alarm goes off at 3:30am and then she leaves to go to work around 4:45am. Then again, whenever I'm reading, I tend to lose track of time. I can ignore almost anything that's going on around me, even the obnoxious yelling the cats sees fit to do at all hours of the day and night. I get that from my mom though. She could be reading a book and not even realize that someone is standing next to her trying to have a conversation with her until someone touches her. Its kinda funny to watch people who don't know. They think she's purposely ignoring them.

Anywho nothing exciting has happened to me since the last time I wrote. I was going to write an entry yesterday, but I couldn't even think of how to start it. After 5 minutes of staring at the screen, my screen saver came on and I gave up trying to figure out an entry.

The wedding dream that I had a few nights ago is still with me. Whenever I close my eyes, I see myself in that dress. Standing at the alter with my soon-to-be husband in front of an audience of people. I realize that I'm feeling happiness and sadness at the same time, though I'm not sure why.

I think I've discovered why I had that dream and why its seeing fit to bug me as it is. I was supposed to be getting married this year. For real. Maybe my subconscious is reminding me of that, though I don't know why it would. It doesn't seem like a very descript reason, but its a sensible one.

I want to go for a walk; I can feel my leg muscles starting to weaken, but its just too hot. You can bet on it though, that once it starts to cool off I'll be walking on a regular basis ... unless I have a car. Then it might not be every day, but I'm still going to try.

Alright, I need to get this out. There's this song that everyone needs to listen to. Actually, there's two, but I can't remember the name of the other one. So once I ask my mom what it is, then I'll tell you. Anywho, back to the one song. Tim McGraw - Don't Take the Girl. I don't care if you don't like country, you need to listen to this song. And don't just simply play it and say you listened to it. I mean really listen to the words being said. Its an emotional song, not in the sense that you'll cry your eyes out, but if it doesn't put at least some sort of emotion into you, the I'd check to see if your heart was still functioning properly. {If you're too lazy to go find the song yourself, I'll make it really easy for you. Simply scroll down to my playlist at the bottom of my page. The song is on there}

Okay, now that I've gotten that out, I'm good. I also don't know what else to write so I guess this is the end of the entry.

total eclipse
Tuesday. 8.28.07 3:01 am
It is 3:01am and the moon is totally eclipsed. I've been watching the progress over the last hour or so. The last time I had the opportunity to see a total eclipse was back in '98 or '99 and I was living in Florida at the time. It was overcast the whole night, so I was unable to witness it.

Well, I'm living in Southern Nevada now and the sky is completely clear, with the exception of a wispy cloud here or there. I'm able to see the moon very clearly from my backyard. The only issue I have is trying to keep the cats inside. I would let them out, but I don't want to have to chase them around and wrestle them back inside.

But back to the eclipse. Its really nothing special. At least not to the untrained human eye. Maybe if I had a high powered telescope, or even a regular telescope, it might be more exciting. But since I don't, I'm not all that thrilled. Its nice to say that I was able to witness one. Now all I have to do is see a total eclipse of the sun and Haley's Comet and I'll be set. Ha.

Anywho, last night the weather was very different from the calm tonight. Last night was awesome! It actually stormed for a good few hours. It wasn't raining the whole time, but the rolls of thunder were almost constant and the light show was very pretty. They said on the news that lightning had struck a power box right up the road from here. The strike cause the pavement to crack. Awesome!

I was standing outside in the driveway for half the time just watching the lightning. When it started to rain I stayed out in it until it got a little heavier and I didn't feel like getting soaked then coming back into the cool house. By the time the storm passed, the temperature had dropped to 73! {btw, the same temp as in the house.} The sun was starting to rise just as the storm was finishing and you could see it coming through the cracks in the clouds just beyond the mountains. It was a little before 7am that I finally laid down and went to sleep.

It didn't go as planned with me having the house to myself for a part of the day. I slept through all but the last half hour of my alone time. That's what I get for staying up till 7am. Oh well. I'm going to be going to bed here shortly, if I can actually convince myself to sleep. Maybe then I'll wake up at a decent time and have more alone time. I only get part of three days a week and I've already wasted one.

Alrighty, I think that's it for tonight. I shall write again whenever.

entry-tastic randomness
Sunday. 8.26.07 7:31 pm
I'm watching Scooby Doo right now, the first one. There are other things on, but I love Scooby. Don't judge.

I hate how, whenever I eat too much, I get tired. I always fight the urge to go to sleep ... I have to now, regardless if I wanted to or not; when I lived on my own, it was easier to sleep for a couple hours, completely undisturbed. Here, not so much.

Tomorrow is the first day of school for my sister. If I get up at 7am, I'll have the whole house to myself until Jean gets home from work, shortly after 2:30pm. I think I might get up with them in the morning {at 5am; I'm sure I will regardless if I want to; the noise would wake me} Then I'll be free to do whatever the hell I want {of course within limits seeing as how its not my house.} I think I'll turn up my music and clean. Maybe ... I'll have to see how I feel tomorrow.

I started reading a new book last night. Absolute Fear by Lisa Jackson. I only got through the Prologue before I was too tired to keep my eyes open, but I have a feeling its a good enough book to keep me interested.

Ever since I uninstalled McAfee and installed Norton, I haven't been having any problems with the internet. Actully, my computer has been running like it did at my apartment when I had it directly plugged into the modem. About the only thing that's not been working is the Gruvsonic radio, but it always has its days where it doesn't work right. Oh well.

I was able to watch all but the last two hours of the Futurama marathon last night. It had started to replay the ones from earlier in the marathon, so I didn't entirely mind turning it off. I was falling asleep anyway and I wanted to start reading the new book to see if it was worth continuing.

I've come to the conclusion that Charlie and I will not be going out. He hasn't contacted me since just after he got back from his camping trip and he still hasn't called me. Something tells me that he didn't even save my number. Oh well. I've given up trying to subtly hint that I want to hang out with him and I figure if he really wants to, he'll ask me. No point in wasting my energy in trying to make something happen that isn't going to. If only it was that easy when I was working on getting over Stuart.

Hmm, I think that's about it for now. I shall write again whenever.
