today I learned...I brought my extra deodorant and wore lighter clothes (who knew that all black with long pants would make me overheat?). Wearing a skirt and tank top is definitely better! Although I'm still hoping the ac in my office gets fixed soon!

I just realized that added sulfites aren't allowed in organic food in the U.S. This is going to make my life so much easier.

But I assume naturally-occurring sulphites are fine, right? I am simply curious.

Heeeeey new job twin! I am so tired, but mostly because I wake up crazy early in order to mentally prepare myself for the day. And stay up super late to feel as though I have some semblance of downtime. I just can't wait until I've been there a month. It'll be completely different.

Yeah. And there's a wine exception if it's under a certain amount. Not sure about other alcohols.

On the plus side, I'm now qualified to use an evac chair, and the training was kind of fun, though also tiring. Plus I'll be getting first aid training soon, which I've been meaning to do for age and never got round to.


I hope things get a bit easier for you (I always find they do after a few weeks in a new job) and that you get used to the early starts, I have been getting up at 5:30 for a couple of years and I now enjoy the peace at that time in the morning

My car is fixed! The mechanic said it runs like a dream now. I really appreciate the effort he took to make sure it was a proper fix. He told me a very long and convoluted story about all the things he thought it was and took apart before he finally figured it out. It was tricky, because it was only happening when the engine was hot (hence why it runs fine in the winter and shitty in the summer), and they tend to only run tests when the engine is cold. And I was right - it was an electronic issue, not a mechanical one. Plus it cost way less than I was worrying about. I mean, not cheap (and I've basically spent over $800 in the past month getting my car up to code), but I was steeling myself for another $500-$1000 fix.

Anyway, wahoo! So glad to go back to driving my car and not being afraid it will die on me while going uphill! T's car is way nicer than mine, and I love driving it because of that, but I always feel so nervous when driving someone else's car.

Everyone in the apartment next to my apartment keeps moving out after a few months. I told this to the last people shortly after they moved in (a few months ago) and they were like, that's so weird! We love it here! And it's so cheap!

And now they're moving out.

IS IT HAUNTED?

Probably. Have you ever noticed anything odd? Maybe flickering lights or cold spots? You might want to line your doors and windows with salt and keep an iron poker nearby, just in case.

ooooooh. Switch apartments and live there for a while to see. or get the next people to set up a live web cam so we can all watch the ghosts play at night.

I'm baking a cake! It has been far too long since I've done this. Licking the last drops of batter out of the mixing bowl and smelling the cake in the oven are both wonderful things.

Strawberryrock, you should start some sort of survey that you ask all the sets of neighbours when they move out. And if you want to be extra creepy scientific you could start taking notes on all the circumstances surrounding them deciding to move out.

The radio DJ said to stick around to hear a simple trick to spice up your life in the bedroom. The first thing that came to my mind was grapefruit.

hahaha I really wish I was in a relationship right now just so I could show my partner that video, and then come home the next day with a bag of grape fruits to scare the shiitake out of them.

I love freecycle. This year, I've got some beautiful enormous ceramic plant pots, a lovely convex mirror for the garden, a single bed and mattress (from someone I knew, quite coincidentally) and I'm currently trying for a greenhouse. I also hooked a friend up with a lot of plant and wildlife for his new pond.

The kindness of strangers is wonderful.

Wow! Those are some seriously good freecycle finds!

Strawberryrock, regarding the high turnover of neighbouring apt - maybe Olive knows something, and she's not telling. ;)

I have final tomorrow, and I should be studying. I got in a good 40 minutes, then took a five minute break... 20 minutes ago and it's still not over. This is a class in my major that I'm totally kicking asparagus in, and I'd literally have to completely fail to lose my A... so I'm feeling really unmotivated? Mostly because I'm 99% sure I'm getting the flu my mom had last week, and all I want to do is sleep...

Maybe I'll just finish going through my notes and half asparagus going through the study guide and call it a night.

Finals not during finals week. It's a blessing and a curse.

My colleague sitting next to me drinking a carton of chocolate milk is making me want to gag. Also she often brings up questions about animals and then pouts and says "I'm gonna cry!" when I tell her about dairy cows. ARGH.
