On my iPhone. It torments me, so I must publish a draft.

So I am currently on a train and I forgot my book, so no excuses. I don't remember the last time I posted, but Dave and I took the week before July 4th off, so a total of 10 days off. IN A ROW. I don't think I have ever done that before. It was mostly a staycation, which was honestly pretty fabulous. We went to Spa World (just go), had some vet appts, I took my car to Poquoson (on the train to go get it now), and just relaxed. There was other stuff we did, but relaxing was the theme. We also went to Erie for a few days (to visit Dave's family), but came home on Sunday, July 3rd. This is my new favorite plan. We usually get home super late the night before we have to be at work, but this time was awesome. The 4th was all about relaxing.

Having one car has been a little bit of a challenge, but nothing too bad. The biggest issue was that in our last day in Erie and on the way home from Erie, Dave's brakes started grinding in a really disconcerting and not unlike nails-on-a-chalkboard kind of way. Normally, not an issue, but with that car being our only car, cause for concern. Finally gave my blessing to Dave buying a new car, so he will be at a Hyundai dealership later getting his new Elantra. His beautiful 98 Camry is going to my sister, who gets her license in October. Because of this arrangement, my dad and Dave replaced his brakes on Wed night, at a cost of leas than $100 and my mom even made dinner!

Anyhow: take homes from this entry: Go to Spa World and don't forget to relax. And for Wit: watch Dead Like Me.

Westboro Baptist "Church" [Mar. 16th, 2010|10:27 am]
katie
So this coming Monday morning (8 to 8:30am - 3/22), the Westboro Baptist "Church" (I put church in quotations, because what church's website would really be GodHatesFags.whatever) and Fred Phelps will be protesting the American education system at my alma mater high school, The Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. I will be there to counter protest, and invite all of you to do the same. If you can't make it, consider donating to the "Phelps-a-thon" to support TJ's Gay/Straight Alliance. You can do that here:

Please find some way to let Fred Phelps and the WBC that what they are doing is NOT OKAY. I firmly believe in their First Amendment right to protest, but students should know that there are sane people out there too.

Let me take a moment to brag on behalf of my boyfriend.  He got an A in his graduate school class this semester.  It was Digital Signal Processing (for a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering), and the course topics are as follows:

• Transform Analysis of Discrete-Time Systems
• Discrete-Time Processing of Continuous-Time Signals
• Digital Filter Structures and Quantization Effects
• Digital Filter Design
• Multirate Processing
• Spectral Analysis Using the DFT
• The Fast Fourier Transform

I would have gotten an F--.  I am so proud of him; he worked really hard :-)

The memos on this website make me ill.  This is what George W. Bush's (who I voted for) DOJ was 'authorizing.'

It seems as though the internet, by which I mean the people on the internet, is on edge recently. I find this funny.

Remember what Bill S. Preston, Esquire said, "Be excellent to each other." Also remember what Ted Logan said, "Party on, dudes!"

2009 [Jan. 5th, 2009|02:27 pm]

So I don't really do resolutions. That being said, I have bought a $130 pair of running shoes and begin running tonight. My goal is running the Army 10 Miler on 10/4/09. I have a 'training regimen' that will have me running a 10k in March (6.2 miles), which should leave me more than able to do 10 miles in October. I used to run a LOT and liked it a lot, so I'm hoping this new program makes me happy. I'm training somewhat slowly because of my knee.

In related news, I'm going to try to eat better (ie not one big meal a day) to give my body the nutrients it needs to run all the time. My goal is not to lose weight, but I'm guessing if I am running all the time and eating on a somewhat regular basis, some weight will come off. Once I see if the 10 miler has killed me, I plan on running the Marine Corps Marathon in October of 2010.

 Um... so I'm over at my boyfriend's house (cat watching for his roommates) while he and his roommates are out of town.  I am cleaning his room up for him.  How sick does this make me?

Facts that bear mentioning:
1. He knows that I really want to clean his room hardcore and mostly just seems amused.
2. I am turning into my mother.  AHHHHHHHHHHH.
3. I have nothing else to do today?
4. If for no other reason than I like to clean, his roommates love me.
