Hey all...ok so I just thought this would be an easy way to tell y'all whats been going on today without having to tell it a half dozen times. So I don't know how many of you I've told that Dane used to have petite mal seizures when he was little...he hadn't had any problem with them since he was like 6 or 7 I think. Well today he had two full on grand mal seizures. The first one he had at work...just dropped and started seizing...managed to hit his head pretty good too. He has a pretty good bump on his forehead and another plus a few stitches on the back of his head. He bounced back from that one pretty quick...had a hell of a headache but they had him up and moving around and were gonna send him home with a prescription and strict no-driving-for-six-weeks instructions.
Then he had another one...whacked his head again too, now he has another pretty red bump in the middle of his forehead. Anyway apparently this one kinda zapped him cause he's been more asleep than awake since about 4 this afternoon. Anyway they're keeping him overnight for observation...he should hopefully get to come home tomorrow.
Anyway yeah I just thought you guys might wanna know...especially Juliet (grin)

Kelly had this posted and I was bored and figured hey why not...I haven't posted anything in forever...so here goes.

Seven quirks/habits/facts/call them what you likes...

1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.

1) People in large quantities, and especially in smallish enclosed spaces, freak me the hell out...not quite panic attack level but close.

2) I'm the only 25 year old virgin that I know...

3) I'm pretty sure I've got ADD and have had it for most of my life, also possibly OCD to a lesser extent

4) I can't stand to eat bread by itself without lots of butter or something on it...the texture and the taste make me gag.

5) I do not have the flirting gene...I can't do it, don't recognize it when other people do it, and apparently can't write it either.

6)  I have a weird fear of ladders...I love heights but getting up on a ladder, or even a step stool or standing on a chair freaks me out.

7) I am of the opinion that everything in life has a soundtrack...and if it doesn't it really really should.

I'd tag people but I figure (shrug) if they wanna do it they will so...

Ok so I was getting ready for work...which I still need to finish doing and I found this and just had to post about it....cracked me up.
All you Stargate Atlantis fans out there will appreciate this.
There are 2 videos you need to see....the first was made by a fan and posted on youtube. It is an original rap about how much the guys loves Atlantis. I saw it a while ago and laughed my ass off. Here is the Link
The other Vid is actually done by David Hewlett...the guy who plays McKay. He apparently had WAY too much time between scenes and made his own little rap in response to the first guys, who incidently ended up getting a parton the show as Scientist #2.
Someone on a Yahoo group I"m on sent out the link...I watched it. Funny as hell. Here is the link
Ok well I'm off to work now. Later.

I should probably try and update this a little more often...(shrug) ahh well. Anyway I just thought I'd post to let you know that I have not in fact fallen off the planet. I started my new job back in february, worked days, which sucked, for two weeks and then the last few I've been on nights. I actually like it better. I'm working hours I'd be up anyway, plus I get to sleep in in the mornings which is of the good. Its funny the work is a lot harder than what I was used to, loading and unloading trucks, but I actually like it. My stress level is like a third of where it was when I was at the store. I like the people I work with even, I have yet to feel homocidal towards anyone there, which is quite the switch from working at the store. Plus I'm losing weight, or at least inches cause I haven't gotten on a scale or anything but my clothes fit different...especially the pants. I'm getting much needed exercise and getting paid for it, how fabulous is that?
Anyway in other news I'm probably gonna get a new vehicle in may or june sometime...I want to wait till my 90 days are up at work. I"m thinking either a small SUV of some sort that gets decent gas mileage, or a smallish car that gets good gas mileage...you notice a theme there. My car's gas mileage is of the not so shiny.
Anyway I just thought I'd do a quick update or whatever since its been a while.

Wow its been an age since I updated hasn't it? Well I haven't fallen off the face of the planet. Mostly I've just been working and babysitting. I had an Interview last week here in town and the lady called this morning to tell me I got the job. Its working in a warehouse but its making twice what I'm making now so at least I'll be able to pay my bills without having to ask grandma for fundage every little bit. So thats a bonus. I'm still looking for something that doesn't make me feel like I wasted 100grand on a degree but for now this will keep my bills paid. Also I'll have a regular schedule which I'll be very glad of...five nights a week and weekends off. No more bouncing from shif to shift and almost never having a weekend off.
Anyway in other news mom is getting geared up to go to Daytona for the race with my Aunts. She's been counting the days since sometime in December I think. The real trick will be getting the three of them on the plane...mom's the only one who has ever flown. Should be interesting to say the least.
And do you know that the one time in my entire life that I actually wanted to watch the superbowl for anything but the commercials I have to work? But the night manager and I are gonna try and find a radio or something so we can at least listen to it maybe...since the store owner is a putz and wont let us just close early that day (grumble). (sigh) ahh well I'll just have to call home for updates or something or maybe have them tape it for me. (shrug)
Well thats it from me.

Ok so i haven't fallen off the planet...I just lead a boring life and have not a whole lot of anything to post about. But I'm bored so it was either this or sudoku puzzles online.
So yeah same shit different day...had to work at o'dark thirty this morning, yesterday too actually. Which totally blows...cause a morning person I am not. Then Billy the owner decided yesterday that he thought the front end looked too messy so we had to clean everything off and then reshelve it. And let me tell you there are few less fun ways to spend your time than scraping old tape off a shelf with a razor blade and trying to disprove the laws of physics by wedging candy into spaces that don't exist just because some micromanaging freak thinks it should all magically fit. (sigh) 
I'm not gonna get into the pain in my ass that is work at the moment cause it just makes me want to smack someone...preferably Billy. Putz that he is.
In other news...Bub is, I think anyway, back with his Ex. Skye. Yes that is really her name I swear. I'm not sure what i think about that either...cause every time they've been dating before she's treated him like crap. She seems less flaky so far this time...though I still think he's way more into her than she is him. Its like I told him, I don't have a problem with her as a person...I just think she makes a lousy girlfriend. To top it off she's pregnant and just broke up with her previous boy, and the kids dad a few weeks ago. So I'm kind of affraid he's gonna get attached to her and the kid both and then she's gonna screw him over again. I know my oppinion doesn't really count here but damnit its kind of like watching a train heading for a car parked on the tracks...you have a pretty good idea whats gonna happen but there isn't alot you can do about it. (sigh)
Hmmm...ok onto a less annoying subject...oh I've found a new show to be hooked on. Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Fabulous show. The dialogue makes me want to hug the writers. Its by the people, at least some of them, who did West Wing...which I have still never seen but want to. The banter is great. If you haven't seen it yet you should. Its on monday nights at 10 after Heroes, another show that I think looks interesting but am almost never home to watch.
Oh and just because I've not been able to find it online and one of you might have better luck...I'm looking for something for my friend Chandra. She doesn't have the internet and she wants me to try and find her a picture or something of her name in Sanskrit.  Cause that is the language of origin of the name.  She wants it to use for a tattoo. If anyone might happen to know where to find it or something that would be muchly shiny.

To Skippy or not to Skippy?

Ok so I just thought I'd let anyone who might be interested that I updated the Skippy List. Its up to 229 now I think...actually I've updated it twice this month but I kinda forgot to tell anybody the first time. I know most of you won't care but (shrug) somebody might. Oh and if you do read it and can think of any thing to add to the list letme know...I thought of a few of the new ones but most of them were taken from comments people left. Also to anybody who might care I've been thinking of doing a Stargate Atlantis version of the list...I know there is already at least one out there but I'm bored and a geek so its been kicking around in my brain for a while. I've even written a few down but I'd like some input on whether I should post it at all or what...that is assuming that any of you even care. I know sevreal of you don't watch the show.
