I caught some disease involving a sore throat and possibly irritated sinuses. I only say possibly on that last one because I have had a bloody nose since July courtesy of fucking allergies(is it winter yet?), it's just been hurting a hell of a lot more since yesterday.

Fricking JOY.

My shift was shit-canned today and I'm only working one day next week(the joys of resigning your shitty retail job), pretty sure I have no plans this weekend, thank goodness.

We had to apply for another car loan. Now, in my head, all of me knows this needs to happen and happen fairly quickly and especially with my new job this won't even financially be a problem(my starting offer is what my husband currently makes after about 3 years at his current job, our income is about to fucking double here). I need to commute to Middleton and J needs his car to visit clients about 2 out of 5 days a week, but most of me is just going "Ah fuck not another car payment."

Current plans involve sitting in bed and navigating all this paperwork for my new job and stuff. Mostly today...involve sitting in bed. Calling maintenance to complain about the severe lack of hot water, have a watchful cat watch me, drink liquids or maybe ionized plasma if I get bored. There's also books. Currently reading Lies My Teacher Told Me and slowly becoming convinced that everyone who learned anything about USA history in a US school needs to read it now. It does at least say this book is for anyone who ever slept through history class and hell, that's usually about what I had planned for that class! Not like I learned a damn thing in those classes...still got A's though, handy.

It still hasn't sunk in that I start working as a scientist on October 8th. It just doesn't feel real yet.

Well, I think it's high time this anemia high-tails it the fuck out of here. Chris told me I look like hell, and I actually got a fair amount of research done today, in the 3 hours I've been here.

I found my ring. It was in the box I always keep it in. Which I find funny, because when I was first looking for it, I know I looked through that box at least three times. So when I go to get earrings, there my ring is, wrapped around one of the earrings I wanted? Good grief. I know I did a lot of shots last week, because last week sucked, but I don't recall getting drunk at all. Maybe I don't search well under stress. Or I sleep-walked my ring into the box. Who the fuck knows...

Well, I get to e-mail research results to my advisor, and shop for car insurance. Joy. Oh, and I offered to help pack up McCracken. What was I thinking, other than $10 an hour for 4 days of moving, and I am broke? That IS what I was thinking.

We finally, FINALLY got our appointment letters for next semester. Which is good, since we get our first paycheck for next semester this FRIDAY. Way to be on top of things, ass clowns. I am just so utterly impressed with the sheer brilliance of the administration people at this university, and by utterly impressed, I mean completely blown away by the sheer lack of skill. MTU's admin people were so much better than this.

Jason and I are going to the GLI on Friday, the 29th. I'd take bets on how well MTU will do, but that just doesn't seem like a bright idea, all things considered. Should be fun, though, I hope. And in my mission to spend time with Belle... :p Oh well, still got that party in January to look forward to.

ETA: My mom's present FINALLY arrived. About fucking time.

As of Wednesday, I am officially on vacation.
