"And We Could All Use A Little Change.."  
I'm not really sure if I'm happy with this layout, but I'm leaving it up because I'm tired of wrestling with it. How come all the cool layouts have really complicated rules for adding headers? *pout* Anyway, at least the header is pretty.

It rained today, which was nice and soothing. I sat out on my covered porch and read a little, but mostly I just watched the rain and tried to let go of any angst I was holding in. Which turned out to be a good thing, because when I went over to my brother's, he was on the phone with Mom. My mother and brother seem to communicate primarily by yelling at each other, even when they're having a perfectly aimiable conversation. X_x;; Weird.

My job interview yesterday went very well-- the district liason said she'd put my name on the October agenda to be approved as a substitute.I was really nervous, not having done an interview in a coon's age, so I was very relieved.

I'm trying to work on more of "The Red Truck Affair"-- I almost have another chapter done, but I need to write a paragraph to bridge these two sections. Carol seems to think this is some sort of Herculean task. *scolds muse* Cooperate, damnit!

Sighted nothing, reporting same. Smoke 'em if you got 'em. ^_~
Emotional Temperature: okayokay

Relient K! Band!love!

*clears throat* Erm, sorry. But I loves them. ~_^

YAY for the interview! I knew you'd do well; how could you not? ^_^

What you mentioned in your last comment, about the passive-agressive emotional blackmail? Yeah. That sounds, unfortunately, very familiar. My mom does that from time to time, and there's nothing you can say to that! Just hope and pray that it'll pass, really.

Carol, work with her! *shakes finger at your muse* Don't be stubborn; the sooner you get it over with, the sooner you can go back to doing the things you want to do, like pervy plot bunnies and such.

.......I sounded like my mother, without the pervy plot bunnies part. 0_o

The layout, btw, is tres bien, and I think I just mixed two languages, but it doesn't matter. It's gorgeous lambykins; the background also makes me quite happy. (STARS!! *dances with them*)

I had chocolate. And soda. In that order. Repeatedly. You've been warned.

Relient K is awesome! My brother got me hooked on them with "Which To Bury, Us or The Hachet".

Ne, if you like Relient K, you might like The Fray, if you haven't tried them already. Their "Over My Head (Cablecar)" is great.

See, passive-aggressive people are harder to deal with than the openly aggressive ones. At least with people who are openly aggressive and/or manipulative (like my sperm donor sorry excuse for a dad), you can fight back. With passive-aggressive people, you have to pretend everythings okay, all the while trying to avoid whatever they're attempting to guilt you into.
Dudes, family can be love. But a lot of times, FAMILY = STRESS. X_X;;

*grins* I'm glad you like the layout! Took my forever to get the polaroids right. *huggles her wifey*

*plies Neb with kit-kat bites and icecream* You're cute when you're bouncy. *snog*

That's a good song too; have you heard their version of Handel's "Messiah"? Dude. Handel would be rolling in his grave if he heard it. Or maybe he'd get up and groove. ~_^

I haven't heard The Fray yet; now I gotta go look! *runs to dig*

*runs to finish her comment*

I'd rather someone scream at me than do the silent treatment or the passive agressive crap. It just....urrrgggghhh!! There's nothing you can do about it, except try to avoid falling in and agreeing with them like they want, you're right.

And yes, they can be love. But sometimes? Really sometimes? Family can = serious loads of stress that no one needs. Grr.

It was well worth it; it looks great, and I definitely approve of the background, too. Anything planet or star related snags my attention, and then I realize there's more to the picture. (Actually, I didn't notice the planet and the stars right away; I was too focused on the other pretties. See how impressive it was? ~_^) *huggles back*

KIT-KAT!! My all time favorite chocolate. Besides Twix and Take 5. (I have a chocolate pretzel love, which can only be unfounded by chocolate potato chip love. If you've not had either, you have to try them. The latter is a little harder to find, but well worth the effort. It's not as gross as it sounds, I promise. Then again, I dip french fries in milkshakes so...~_^) Salt and chocolate = best friends where I'm concerned.

Good thing you think I'm cute like this, because bouncy is a common mood with me. *snogs back*

*bounces off the wall*
