Scary Fun

So I have been busting my ass trying to make money for all my bills that are due at the end of the month. And I just about have all the money I need. After Saturday, I figured out that I had to make $45 a day on Sun, Mon, and Tues. Today I made exactly $45. At least I made my goal.

After work I came home, took a little nap, and then showered. I picked up Les and we went to Posados. We sat in Chelsey's section, but I didn't get to talk to her much. She colored her hair and it looks cute. I really wish we got to see each other more. We really need to see each other's apartments.

After we stuffing our faces we went to Scare Grounds off of Oak Lawn. You have to pay a cover charge to get in and then you have to pay for the haunted house. You also have to buy coupons for anything like food. Also, when you buy your ticket for the haunted house it has a number on it. You have to wait until your group number is up to enter the haunted house. Our group number was 10 and the number that was up when we got there was 5. So we had to just walk around the tiny space and kill time. When we finally got to go in the haunted house, it wasn't that scary. We were at the back of the group, so they teenagers in front of us screamed before we even saw anything. I was also the caboose of the group. I felt safer behind Les, but things kept creeping up behind me and following me. Only once did I actually scream and jump in the haunted house. After doing that we went in the maze. That was actually scarier than the haunted house. Overall it wasn't that scary, but I still had fun.

It was only 10pm when we left, so we stopped by Blockbuster to rent The Reaping. I've been wanting to rent this movie for weeks and they never have it. So we go and sure enough, they are out. I'm convinced that they only have two copies and those are always being rented. So we went to Wal-Mart and Les bought it for me as an early birthday present. It turned out to be a good movie.

So tonight was a pretty good night. And in case you didn't know, my boyfriend is awesome.

While we were at Posados, Rodney invited us to his Halloween party. I was hoping someone would have one. So I think we might go to that. The girls from work want to go out for my birthday, but I don't know when or where. I'd like to go out on Thursday night, but I don't know if everyone is off. I don't really care what we do as long as it involves drinking!

It has been a while since I have posted anything, so here is what I have been up to:

Wednesday night Rebecca, Sarah, and Emily came over for a girls night. I cooked enchiladas for everyone. The enchiladas had cheese and beef on the inside and were topped with green chili sauce. I cooked black beans and rice to go along with it. We also ate some of the pico Mom made me. I wasn't too impressed with the beans and rice, but the enchiladas were a hit!

Here is me cooking. I made everything by myself, except Rebecca rolled the tortillas.

For drinks I made apple martinis and pink panties (vodka and pink lemonade). I finally got to use my martini glasses from Crate and Barrel.

We had a lot of fun and decided we need to get together more often. Plus it was nice having people over.

Since Thursday I've just been working. My sciatica has been bothering me, so working hasn't been too pleasant. Mom let me borrow her heating pad, which has helped a lot.

Friday I went into work and worked my butt off and made $131. I was so excited. I haven't had any money this month so I'm left with no choice but to pick up as many shifts as I can. Right now I have to make $400 by the end of the month. So no free time for Lacey :(

Today I went on an interview at Katz radio. I think it went pretty well, but she told me that they were interviewing a lot of people, so that doesn't make me feel so confident. I also had to take a math test while I was there, which was strange. I ran into Mark in the hall and was excited to see him. I really wish I could have worked with him.

After the interview I came home, changed into my pajamas, and snuggled under the covers. I fell asleep and was woken up by the phone. The president of Champion Sports Radio wanted to set up an interview with me. I called him back and set up an interview. Him and the vice president are taking me to lunch Wednesday morning to talk. I am so nervous. While I was on the phone with him, I had a call beep in. I had a voicemail from a lady at FOX. She wanted to set up an interview as well. So Wednesday afternoon I am going to talk to her. All that was pretty cool, but strange at the same time. Hopefully one of these interview will lead to a job.

Since it's so cold outside I turned off the ac, but now I'm cold. I don't want to turn the heat on because I want to save money, plus it will probably be too warm. But I hope it stays cool for a while longer.

And that is what I have been up to. My birthday is next week and I am none too excited. I think Les is working on Halloween and my birthday. Mom can't take off from work. And getting everyone together is too much of a hassle. Plus I didn't do anything for anyone else's birthday, so I don't expect them to do anything for mine. I also don't have any money to do anything. But I hope I don't end up sitting around the house by myself that day. Maybe I will go get my hair done that day.

I bought these candle holders last night at Walmart. They hang outside.

Here is my little fish. If you can't tell, he's white and blue.

Yo soy no bueno

I must be in some kind of funk. I've been having crappy days and have also been feeling depressed. I didn't get to go to the fair today. I was looking forward to it, but Mom got sick. Then I spent all afternoon trying to find someone who would hang out with me, and everybody was busy or unreachable. All I wanted to do was not spend the entire day all be myself.

Later on I went to Walmart and did what I always do when I'm depressed: shop. I bought groceries, some makeup, and a fish. It's a male Japanese fighting fish. He's pretty. I will have to post a picture of him later. I also have to figure out a name for him. It's been a very long time since I've owned a fish. I guess I was feeling lonely when I bought it.

Rain is in the forecast

It's raining outside! This past weekend wasn't any different from all the other weekends: work, sleep, work, complain, work, sleep.

Saturday night I went over to Liz's new apartment. It's an older apartment, but it's cute. Once she gets some furniture and decorates, it'll be real cute.

Today I went over to Mom's after work. She had been real sick, so I brought her some food from Sonic. I also got a whopper shake and a lemon cream slush. Both are delicious!

Today is cleaning day, but I'm not going to clean. It may be strange, but I like to clean while the sun is shining. Maybe it makes me feel like things are getting cleaner. Maybe Tuesday I will give the place a good cleaning.

I'm glad it's raining, because I like the rain. But I have a feeling that the power might go out. Also, there is a little creek outside my apartment and everytime it rains, I have a fear of little kittens getting swept away in it. Now, I have never seen any kittens around my apartment, but there are cats. I frequently peak out my window to see if I need to run down there and save a helpless animal. I'm weird, yes I know.

Tomorrow I get to pick up my car. I had to put it in the shop last week to fix the door (from when it was broken into). They gave me an extended cab Ford F150 to drive around while my car was being fixed. It's huge! But I like it. I will be sad to give it back, but I won't miss parking that monster.

I also need to call Christal Radio tomorrow. He said to call at the begining of the week to see if I have a second interview. I really hope I do. And I really hope I get the job.

Good day so far

Today I had my job interview. I think it went really well, so hopefully this will be it. I actually interviewed with 2 different companies, which is fine because I would work for either.

Tonight I am going to the movies with Mom. We are going to see Across the Universe. I can't wait!

I've been thinking about my hair lately. I've already decided that I'm going to go darker for winter, but I don't know when I should color it. Also, I'm thinking about getting bangs. I haven't committed to it yet, but I'm definitely thinking about it.

Wednesday, October 10, 2007


Well, I'm still sick. I called in to work yesterday. All I've been doing is laying around on the couch and sleeping a lot. I rented a bunch of movies Tuesday because I knew I would be trapped in my apartment for a few days. I've already watched Evan Almighty, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and 28 Weeks Later. When I finish with this post I will watch Music and Lyrics.

I'm feeling better, but I still have no energy and I feel sick to my stomach. On the bright side, I have a job interview tomorrow at Crystal Clear Radio. It's for a sales assistant position. I'm excited, but not too excited. I just don't understand why I'm not getting the jobs I interview for. But I will be positive and hopefully I will get this job. I really need money. I feel like I'm struggling. I don't know if I really am or if it's just mental.

Stuffy Nose

I'm sick. I don't know if it's my allergies alone, but I don't feel good. Mu nose is stopped up, I feel sick to my stomach, and all I want to do is sleep.

Yesterday I went to Ronnie and Victoria's wedding. Les was my date. The actual wedding wasn't too long. Then we got to drink free wine and eat fajitas at the reception. Their cake was real pretty, and it was lemon. I had a good time, but sitting through that wedding made me not want to get married for a long time. I'm not ready for that kind of commitment right now in my life. I know that I dream of getting married and having kids, but I think I need to wait a while. Not that I was planning on getting married any time soon. Also, I might have my wedding somewhere other than a church. Unless I just find a beautiful church.

After the wedding I came home and passed out. I slept from 9 to 12. Then I got up for a couple of hours. I finally got back in bed around 2 in the morning and couldn't go to sleep. I had to get up early for work today, which was a struggle. I thought I might feel better once I got to work, but that wasn't the case. I ended up getting out of work around 4. I went to Quiznos and got that chicken carbonara sandwich, which was delicious. Then I took a nap. The rest of the night I haven't been doing much. I added some pictures to my Elora photo album, cleaned up my desk, did laundry, and painted my toenails. I still don't feel good. It's not just one thing that is bothering me. I don't feel good all over.

Now I am going to bed since I have to work a double tomorrow. Here are some pictures from the wedding:

Drunk Dialing

I got the strangest phone call tonight. At 12:45 my phone rang. I answered it and some guys was screaming "Susan!!!" I told him that he had the wrong number, but he wouldn't get off the phone. I ended up staying on the phone and talking these two drunk guys. They are 18 and from Quinlan. They were some crazy guys, getting naked in front of mothers and streaking. Anyways, it made my night interesting.

Wanna hear something strange? Before my phone rings or receives a text message, my speakers will make a weird noise. It never fails, my speakers will make a noise and then immediately my phone will ring. Freaky isn't it?

When will it get cold?

As always, I've enjoyed my 2 days off. Tuesday night I spent the night with Les. I didn't go to sleep til 6 in the morning. It's been a long time since I've done that. I got up Wed morning and went to go get my rear windshield wiper replaced. When I got there I discovered that they hadn't ordered the part yet. So that meant that I had to come back another time.

After leaving the body shop I went over to Mom's and watched 2 episodes of Heroes. Then I came home, took a shower, and then a little cat nap. I tried a new technique with my hair. When I got out of the shower I just ran a comb through my hair. Then I sprayed a curl spray on it, and while it was still wet I put it up in a bun. It stayed in the bun until I took a nap. When I woke up from my nap my hair was curly. I was real pretty. I hate to brag, but I looked real cute that night. I wore jeans, my new gray sweater shirt, and my jewelwd watch. Me and Les went to Casita Domingez. It's right behind the Half Price Books on Northwest Hwy. The food was really good, especially their queso. And for some reason our waitor didn't charge us for my margaritas. I'm thinking it's because I looked so hot, and no one can convince me otherwise!

Today I was woken up at 8 in the morning. The maintanance guy was here to look at the cracked tile in the entry way. He pulled up all the tile and then said that they didn't have any tile and he would have to talk to the manager. So now I have a piece of wood where tile should be. Hopefully they can fix it soon.

After he left, I went back to sleep and didn't wake up til around 1. I think that's the latest I've slept in a long time. I reluctantly got out of bed and headed to the body shop. I was in and out in about 15 minutes.

On the way home I stopped at Lowes to return my ladder. I was in and out of that place in less than 2 minutes. I've never experienced that before. Then I came home, ate, read a magazine, and then took a nap.

I was worried about not having anything to do tonight. I knew that I probably wouldn't habg out with Les and Kristin had plans. But after cooking dinner, I was glad I was at home alone. I really enjoy living on my own. I love this apartment.

For dinner I cooked pasta with garlic alfredo sauce and garlic toast. It was yummy.

It's less than a month till my birthday, and I have no idea what I want to do. I'd like to get everybody together and go eat meaxican food. But I know how hard it is to get everybody together. I'm curious to see what Les does for me. He doesn't think birthdays are a big deal, so it should be interesting.

Our 1 year anniversary is coming up too. I have no idea what to do. I've never had an anniversary before. I know I'll get him a present, but I don't know what to get him. He doesn't wear jewlery or cologne. I wish I had enough money to plan a quick trip to New Orleans for a couple days. I know that he would really like that. But like I said, I don't have the money to do that. Any suggestions?

Speaking of money, I need some. There are so many things I want to do this month. I'm going to the fair Oct 16 with Mom. Some girls from work want to go together also, which I think would be a lot of fun. I also want to go to a haunted house. I don't think I got to go to one last year. Les really likes going to haunted houses, so that should be fun, especially if we can get a group together. Too bad haunted houses are expensive.

Then Halloween is coming up. I don't know what I'm doing yet, but I want to do something. I don't think I'm going to get a costume this year. I have such a hard time finding something that fits, and costumes are so expensive. I want to buy a pumpkin and carve it with Kristin. I think it would look cute in my apartment.

After Halloween is my birthday, then my anniversary, then Thanksgiving, then Elora's birthday, and then Christmas. I love this time of year, but it sucks away all my money.

On a sad note, I still haven't heard anything from that job. I spent all night tonight applying to jobs online. I just wish someone would hire me. Oh, Les got a job at the Outback. Hopefully he gets a good discount and gets to share it.

I've been meaning to put up some more pictures of my apartment, so here goes:

My plates from England:

My kitchen (check out the stars on the wall)
