Weekend Wrapup-Or how it is snowing again?

Yes, so I basically had a excellent weekend..despite the weekend ending in white brite fluffy goodness-It was not too bad overall..

Friday: I had a day of cleaning ahead of me, I cleaned the kitchen(after days of no clean dishes and garbage piling up it gets to you), so I did that, vacummed with my wonderful freind the Swivel Sweeper. My freind Alice came over, as she was going to the Alleycat Revue auditions on Saturday, and wanted some opinions on the number she was doing, we went over it, I gave her some help but overall she was doing fine! She shared some wonderful Papa Johns cheese breadsticks(which are more pizza like, with the sauce on the side). She left and I met up with Jay and his freind Mike from Colorado. Mike and Jay went to high school to together, so they shared some stories from the 'good ole days', we had a few beers then Mike had to call it a night. Jay and I went home.

Saturday-Jay and I woke up and went out for breakfast at George Webb's(which is slowly becoming a Saturday tradition for us), we talked about his upcoming trip to Europe(he is going there for a graduation present). We had a good breakfast of eggs and coffee and cigarettes. hehe.
I had to run home because I had an audition to go to for the Alleycat Revue. When I go to the address, it was this small industrial area...I was kind of confused. I went into the door labelled "AUDITION" and was in a factory type building-now I am having horror movie thoughts of some abandoned old factory, with the creepy masked monster around the corner. Finally I come to my senses and go to the middle building and knock on the door, and a 13 year old boy answers the door. I ask him if he knows where the auditions are, and he says he will show me...we walk BACK to the previous building, through a few work areas and he shows me a red metal staircase and tells me 'its down there'. OK...yea but the real shocker to me was walking down there to find(and I am not making this up) a biker bar in the basement!! The place was something else, off to one side was a photo set up, bikes of all kinds, a pool table, more bikes further back. In the back center of the room was a ceiling to floor stripper pole, a small seating area above and behind it, and a small stage off the left of that with more seating and a bar! I saw the girls from the Alleycats and said 'Boy you guys sure know where to hold auditions!'
I met Colleen, who owned the complex of buildings and businesses within, she introduced herself and asked if I needed anything. I asked for a soda, and settled in for a bit. The auditions had a small turnout, but it made it a more casual atmosphere. I got to watch the others who were auditioning. Later in the afternoon we went to the middle building, where Colleen and her family lives, and she also has a bike chop shop in the back. We had pizza courtesy of Colleen(she was such a gracious hostess!). We went back to bar, and watched the last girl audition for the day.
Unfortunately the weather sidetracked going anywhere in the I just braved it enough to get some essentials, and some wine and hunkered down for the nite.
Sunday-working(as we speak!)

Money is the non exsistence

Basically meaning I barely have any, I was declined a refund anticipation loan from HR Block(I am assuming due to my bad credit). So I now have to wait until April 3rd to get the 700 I am supposed to be getting. I don't think that apartment I want is a reality right now, which sucks because I really really liked it. Perhaps someone will move out in a couple of months when things are better for me...we shall see.

I had a interview for a management-trainee sorta dealy for a consulting firm today.  I don't excpect anything to come of it, I think I botched the interview by being slightly nervous and repeating back to square one again!

I don't feel very good, I just feel low. I am keeping my head up. But it gets hard sometimes.
But the weekend looks to be better, Friday going out with the boy to Planet, Saturday burlesque auditions, Sunday-Getting to see my sis and niece!

Life sucks...

I don't know why I feel this low. Maybe it was the threat of eviction for a stopped rent check payment, maybe it is the 126 dollar overdraft that I didn't see coming, maybe it is the fact that I am not earning anywhere DAMN near what I am worth. 
And at this rate I may has well not even attempt trying to find another apartment, find another job, or even go back to school.
I feel pretty darn low right now.
Jay did help me by helping me pay my rent, one good thing from this week so far, and I spent some time with my good freind Pepin.

I am so tempted to just say F-K it all.

Eat, Drink, and be Merry.

Yea, my weekend was full of rock and roll.
Two shows, Eight bands, and more fun then I can afford my poor liver.
All in all a good weekend...I did need to let my hair down.

Still looking for something better....I applied for a receptionist position at a local cemetary.
I also made the poor woman's tuna noodle casserole...which was tuna, cream of mushroom soup, cheese powder from mac and cheese and some onions. Wow did it turn out good.

And I found my new apartment-425 a month, heat, gas, water included-breakfast bar in the kitchen, wood flooring, ample closet space...and it is just the next street over!
I just have to put 100 down to hold it, and that goes to my security deposit...I cannot wait! If I get it I move in May.

Before the week-ends

-Didn't go to the interview at Potawatomi...don't want to work as a cashier again. Am I not worthy of something better?
I basically decided to stay put for now, I had been feeling kind of restless and crazy lately...maybe it was the cold weather. But I will keep trying for a better job...just cannot picture myself in a cashier position. I do it in moderation at work for payments, but I do Data Entry, Mailings, and Customer Service. But hopefully when I go back to school in the fall, I can make something of my self.  But for now I will stay sense in worrying about it.

Jay's band Fetch the Pliers is doing a show on Saturday, with the Living Wrecks from Baltimore, Cry Coyote from Milwaukee...and some band from Steven's Point.  Should be a good show!

Walking and Pilates have helped me lose 31 pounds since last May!! My goal is to be 175 by the end of the year. 
-I am working on being the Silk Spectre 1 from Watchmen for Gen Con this year, I already got the wig(which I have to style), I have everything except the yellow dress...which can be found I am sure for cheapo.
I am also making some burlesque barbies...just for fun! And speaking of burlesque, I will be back onstage in April. Auditioning for the Alleycat Burlesque Troupe at the end of this month...cross fingers!!
Not much else to mention, just getting by.
Cannot wait for summer.

Who watches the Watchmen?!?!

ME!! OMG This movie was freaking phenomenal, and that ain't no short order(in joke from the movie)!

Jay and I had been planning to see the movie for the last month, but we had our reservations since we heard the director was the guy who directed '300' directed this movie. Well, we figured it would either suck or be super spectacular. Before the show, we picked up our tickets early, and went next door to Landmark Lanes to get some pizza and beer. We went there and sat down,  we hoped that we would be able to get cheese pizza, but they said all they had was veggie. We were fine with that and we ended up getting broccoli pizza! It was kind of funny that we got broccoli pizza in the bar, but hey 'over the lips and through the gums, watch out tummy here it comes'! Suprisingly broccoli pizza and beer ain't too bad together. 

After the little feast we went to the theater and bumped into some freinds we hadn't seen in awhile, Emily and Issac, and we chatted about the weirdness and irony of bumping into each other at a comic book movie, how excited we all were about seeing the movie, and getting some seats together. After Jay got some sodas and a popcorn, all four of us headed into the theater, and found some decent seats.

We spent three hours literally glued to our seats, I didn't even get up to go the bathroom for all three hours.

After the movie I turned to Jay and said 'What did I just watch?' He laughed.
We left the theater in awe of the movie, in Emily's words 'How awesome was that?'
Outside was a bit of a college reuinion, seeing freinds I had not seen in sometime. 
Good night overall.

Where is Judicial a Technical thing?

Oh the woes of trying to find which category the classes I will be taking fall under for the degree I want to pursue. Took me two times to look back and forth, which the degree is business related, the classes are technical based. I hope that was the right one...either way I have applied for something! Next step is applying for aid, and sending in the 30 dollar application fee, then getting tested..which I think is stupid since I was already a student there. Granted that was nearly 10 years ago, and testing has changed a lot. I just hope my math ADHD crap can stay on the back burner for this one.

I have been going to a massage therapist for deep tissue therapy...need to go every week now. It hurts but it helps. Better then abusing my body with Iburprofen as I have for the last 10 years.
-Not much else here to report...hope you didn't get inundated with snow as much as we did here!

Pain Pain go away...

being sick makes you more aware of your body...and all the bad things that you can feel.
I seem to have a mild flu, or Really nasty cold...either way it sucks. I have been congested for two days...and every little pain makes me hate being sick.
-So Jay was in a big game with the D-company guys this week, and while he ended having 'new model failure' in one part of the game(he got a new tank called the Malcador, and has he put it, 'new models always get hit first in their first games), But he got best general in the third game for taking his 5,000 point army, and kicking the butts of a 10,000 point Ork army...I am glad he had fun, sadly won't see him until Thursday when I go to the Diversity Job Fair at UW-Milwaukee he told me I needed to go to.
-Likely going to register for admissions to MATC this week for the Judicial Reporting program...yea.
Not much else to report...
