The adoption person said she'd consider adopting to me with a non-refundable deposit on the adoption fee. Her reluctance is due to her talking to another rescuer who said it was a bad idea to "hold" a dog for someone cause they may change their mind. I went out and got some treats and a tooth cleaning treat for him. I brought a harness with me to see if it fits him. Ben and I are going to go today so Ben can meet him and hopefully I can put the deposit down and go ahead and fill out the contract for adoption.

I really want this little dog.

I'm so nervous.

I went today to see a dog and I really liked it but I was concerned about his teeth and what kind of work might need to be done. I emailed the lady a few times: once asking if she had the dental records and a second to ask if she knew a good dog vet in the area so I could ask how much a cleaning would cost for future reference. She responded that if the teeth were an issue maybe I shouldn't adopt him...now I'm all worried that she wont let me.

I just wanted to be prepared and be sure I had all the information before I made a decision...adopting a pet is not something people should do lightly. I emailed her to explain that I wasn't trying to imply that there was something wrong with him, that I just wanted to be sure I had all the information and a good vet I could contact about the right teeth cleaning stuff I should prepare before I bring him home. I replied that I was just obsessively over-preparing and that I always do that. Then I said I hoped she'd still be ok with me bringing my boyfriend over to meet the dog tomorrow.

I know she had something to go to at her grandson's school tonight at 7 but I'm so nervous. I sent that reply at 6 and I haven't heard back. I was getting attached to the dog and now I'm afraid I wont be able to get him. I know it wouldn't be the end of the world, there's always another dog in need of a home but he seemed like such a good dog for me.

I'm worried over nothing...what's gonna happen is gonna happen, I just wish I could know already.

04:53 pm - Six inch heels! I have them! you want?
i have 2 pairs of shoes that i can't wear cause walking in heels bruises the nerves in my feet.

Pair 1: Thigh high, Six inch heels $30
They are roughly size 11/12. I attached hooks for a garter belt but they can be removed or hidden. They were originally $50, only worn 3-4 times.

Pair 2: Clear Six inch heels $20
These are "stripper heels" and fasten around the ankle. Size 9-11 (I wear a 10 and they're fine on me and they've been tried on someone who wears an 11 and they fit fine) They were originally about $30. They're a little more broken in but still in good condition. I'd accept other offers.


So if anyone wants or knows anyone who might want these, lemme know. I'm trying to sell them before I move to help pay for moving costs and such.

Here is what I would like to know: Why is it that when I get sick it always on a weekend, when my doctor isn't on call, and it lands me in the emergency room?

I cannot afford to spend the rest of my life going to the ER everytime i get a respiratory infection.

So friday I went to charlotte all excited about carrie's wedding. I woke up early cause the house was full of leah and all her friends. There were donuts, it was exciting. I got my hair relaxed and cut (I'm still not sure how I feel about the cut...it's not what I'm used to cause Terry didn't do it) got home, dressed, feeling a bit icky but not horrible. Mom and I left for the wedding (everyone else was IN the weddings so they had left earlier). We were sat next to a guy I had a class in highschool with and we talked...by the middle of the reception I was having hot flashes and kept having to go outside. Moo and I went home early and I took a bath and took dayquil...the party started at 6, moo left for the party and I was gonna go later.

By about 6:30 I realized it wasn't happening so ben and I sat around, watched buffy, and then watched the carolina game (how did we lose so miserably? ARG. The only game I've ever actually cared about and we played horribly). Moo got home and was talking about how awesome the party was and I missed it. There was apparently karaoke and lots of food and fun stuffs. I missed it all. STUPID IMMUNE SYSTEM.

I tried to go to bed about 5 times but couldn't lay down cause of the tightness in my chest and by 5am was coughing up radioactive green stuff...onto the emergency room. I had made it nearly a year without an ER visit but alas, it was not to be.

The staff was strangely upbeat, friendly, and attentive. I've never had such a lovely time at an ER (all things considered). After the blood taking they gave me a happy albuterol bong thing, fluids, a Z pack, zyrtec, and orders to get a hummidifier. I got an extra albuterol/saline lung treatment before we left which helped get some of the stuff out of my lungs and took the chest burning away for a bit.

I spent all of sunday up and down cause I couldn't stay asleep more than an hour...I kept getting horrible chest pain. Mom finally returned with my hummidifier, albuterol bong filler, and Z pack. I got all drugged, took the albuterol and slept for a few hours.

Finally I gave up, got Ben up (he'd been with me at the hospital all night) and we packed up the car to go home. My new car is a manual, ben can't drive it yet, I had to drive home. (Note to self, teach ben to drive car). There was horrible traffic about a half hour north of charlotte and we stopped at a gas station: bunni's blood sugar was high cause of the infection and bathroom was necessary. We found the one gas station with a SINGLE bathroom and a line 20 people long. Ben and I also saw a hooker there. She was frightening. I was very tempted to just go pee behind the building but I realized that half the people's cars were back there..not very private.

Finally back on the road we make it past the traffic from hell (the accident wasn't even on the road, the police walking from one side of the highway to the other were causing the delays) and on home we went. Ben carried all my stuff in and went out to find dinner. He made pasta thingy and got me soda and soup for today since he'd be at work and we watched buffy and supernatural while i counted the hours between albuterol doses. That stuff is magic, why didn't they give me this the last 10 times i had bronchial tightness?

Kato sensei gave me an extension on my Japanese project (or rather said I could do the presentation on the last presentation day). Thank god. I missed syntax again, i hate missing that class. It's my favorite and I'm starting to get confused since he teaches in a building on concepts way and if i miss a day i miss an entire process of reasoning...sometimes 2.

So now I'm sitting in bed eating a piece of delicious pie and occationally coughing out disgusting lung goo. God how much I hate being sick.

Ben is also a little sick but he's been wonderful. He's been helping me get stuff and feeding me and he set up my hummidifier for me and isn't getting offended when I don't want him trying to kiss me (I get panicy when things get near my face when I'm sick). He's definitely passed the ER trip boyfriend test.

Wow that was a long post.

This month I have:
1 5 page paper
1 Test/Quiz in the stupidest class ever
1 Japanese project
1 10 page term paper

I have to try to get insurance on my scooter that is cheaper than the crap I have now and figure out if/how I can afford to go to Japan this summer, figure out grad school stuff and work for next year and avoid a nervous breakdown...that last one being the hardest.

ARG, I say.

I ended up having to go to the DMV to get a copy of my license with the current address on it and the one I ordered online showed up the following day. The one I ordered has my motorcycle permit picture on it (which is bad as far as hair goes) and the one I had taken is also bad hair-wise. My old license picture was awesome. I want that picture back damn it.

I do, however, have a car...that I am significantly better at driving than I was last week. Sometimes first to second isn't the smoothest, but it's getting there.

So I have my car, but it's not technically mine until I get the loan check and pay for it...right now my old car is my deposit on this car. I also have to wait for my replacement license from the dmv with my current address...I have the receipt for the address change...maybe that will be sufficient?

ACTUAL TRANSCRIPTS FROM AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AROUND THE WORLD

Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!"
Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!"

**************************************************************************************************
Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees."
TWA 2341: "Center, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?"
Tower: "Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"

****************************************************************************************************


******************************************************************************************************

A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight. While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked, "What was your last known position?"
Student: "When I was number one for takeoff."

*****************************************************************************************************

A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down.
San Jose Tower Noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able. If you are not able, take the Guadeloupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport."

******************************************************************************************************

A Pan Am 727 flight, waiting for start clearance in Munich, overheard the following:

Lufthansa (in German): " Ground, what is our start clearance time?"
Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English."
Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?"

Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war!"

*******************************************************************************************************



*******************************************************************************************************

The Ge rman air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206.

Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206! clear of active runway."
Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven."
The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.
Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"
Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now."
Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?"
Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, -- And I didn't land."

******************************************************************************************************

While taxiing at London's Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727. An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going? I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!"

Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour, and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?"

"Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded.

Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"

Car is broken. It's apparently about 3k to fix, so I am car shopping. Hopefully my car can make it back to chapel hill before it finishes being broken and I can see what I can find there. I'm also gonna ask my dad's mechanic about a mazda...I'm thinking a protege. Bah, new bills. Just when I thought I was gonna be saving some extra money for the next few months.
