More Strange People

October 20, 2009 at 2:58 pm (Annoyances, Misc.) (, , , , , , )

I really really hate salespeople.  Over the weekend, my phone randomly stopped charging, both on my car charger and my wall charger.  So, I grabbed both chargers and my phone and headed to the Verison store.  I showed the phone to the lady at the store, and she told me either to buy a new phone (200 bucks or more) or get a replacement phone (50 bucks.)  I decided to think about it some more and got some chinese food.  I was examining my phone when I noticed that some of the tiny metal prongs in the charger thing were bent up.  So, I took my plastic fork and gently pushed them back.  I ran outside with my car charger to see if it would work, and it did.  Yay me!

I absolutely hate it when people are like, no, you need to get a new one, the old one is broken.  Haven’t people ever heard of repairing stuff?

This has happened before, too.  I took a fitness class in college, and I was required to buy a heart rate moniter.  Not wanting to spend 100 dollars for a new one, I borrowed my friend’s.  I get to class, and for some reason, it won’t work.  The instructor says I need to buy a new one, but I’m  a poor college student, I don’t have 100 bucks lying around!  So I take it to my boyfriend and he figures out that it’s a dead battery, and also how to take the back off to replace it.  I get a normal watch battery (5 dollars) and TA DA!  Moniter is fixed.

The moral of the story, kids, is if it’s broken, there’s no harm in trying to fix it.

Sweet, Delicious Goodness

October 15, 2009 at 5:33 pm (Food, Things I like) (, , , , )

I have found my new ultimate favorite coffee drink.  Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Coolatta with Hazelnut flavoring.

Delicious!

Delicious!

It’s delicious.  I love Dunkin’ Donuts so much, I haven’t found a coffee shop with better coffee.  I love my coffee cold, and Starbucks’s drinks are much smaller than DD’s.  Plus, their frap isn’t ground up as finely, so I end up with a cup full of ice at the end.  I love Starbucks ice cream though, it’s so much better than their coffee.  I have to be careful though, or all my spare money will go into coffee and a donut.  There’s a Dunkin’ Donuts just down the road from my school, and it’s in the same plaza as this awesome thrift store, so I’m pretty much screwed.  Oh, well, I’ll be happy and caffeinated until I go broke!

Snakes and Dreams

October 14, 2009 at 2:10 am (Annoyances, Dreams) (, , , )

I am absolutely terrified of snakes.  It goes beyond the normal, ew it’s a snake kind of reaction a lot of people have.  I am reduced to a crying, screaming, RUNNING little girl when I see even the smallest, most harmless snake.  I’m shuddering just thinking about snakes.  But anyways, I’ve been having this really strange reoccuring nightmare about snakes lately.  In the dream, I open the refridgerator door, and there’s a hole in the bottom.  Through the hole appears a snake.  In one dream, the snake killed my cat.  In another, it went out onto the porch, and when I followed it, the whole porch was writhing with snakes.  In the latest one, a small snake bit me on the finger and wouldn’t let go.  I woke my boyfriend up screaming with that one.  So if anyone has any skill with interperating dreams, let me know what you think this means…

I Hate Driving

October 8, 2009 at 8:48 pm (Annoyances, Health) (, , , , , , )

Well, no, actually I love driving.  I just hate driving in wind storms.  You see, I drive a Chevy Tracker, which is basically the smallest, cutest little SUV ever.  But, it’s wicked light and fairly tall, so the wind catches it like a sail and pushes me across the road.  I was almost late for class yesterday because I had to go 55 so I didn’t run into anyone.  This is my car (her name is Sadie):

In the summer it’s wonderful because of the soft top and the roof that folds back, but I’m scared about driving in the winter, when the roads are slicked with ice.  I’ve only had her a few months, and so far I’ve loved her, but yesterday was kind of scary.

My Hairclip

October 8, 2009 at 8:40 pm (Clothing, Things I like)

I just got a new hair clip, and I think I’m in love.  It’s called an Octopus Clip, and it looks like an octopus.  Well, when it’s open it looks like a spider.  I think Spideyclip would have been a cooler name but whatever.  My hair is kinda “flyaway” so normal clips don’t work very well in it, but this one has been in since this morning and hasn’t moved!

I know these are nothing new but I only recently tried them out and I like it a lot.

Mmmm, Rum…

October 7, 2009 at 1:13 am (Things I like) (, , , )

I have decided that I like rum.  151 to be exact.  I love that feeling in my stomach when it hits, it feels like a lovely fiery warmth spreading from my stomach out.  I have come to the conclusion that it tastes good mixed with fruit drinks…I didn’t like it with cola very much.  The sweeter the drink is, the better it tastes, because 151 has a bite.

Good stuff!
