i been thinkin about my doorbell

when you gonna ring it, when you gonna ring it?

theecarey messaged me with this and it reminded me i didn't mention the funnies of sunday afternoon.

someone came in through our outer front door and stole the doorknobs off our front doors. for serious. they were the fancy ornate ones like pmt have on their door, traditional old buffalo home knobs. yep, walked right in and yanked them bitches off the door.

i wonder if it's the same pecker heads that stole my bike.

my process

I finally have one thing going smoothly. After about 20 phone calls to various clinics and doctor's offices I found a place that can do all of the tests required for my visa. I'll have that all done tomorrow. Bonus: it's going to be much, much cheaper than I anticipated.

I'm still waiting on my fingerprinting card from Albany.

I just found out I also have to authenticate my diploma with the same lengthy process as the fingerprint card.

Let me hear you say, oh shit!

My leave date is not going to happen July 16.

fingerprinting

It seems Buffalo's fingerprinting department is a one man show. He was on vaca forever. Then he yelled at me saying, "You're just trying to make things difficult for me aren't you" when I told him I do not have my own card.

Silly me to assume a fingerprinting office has the actual cards you get fingerprinted on. No, I have to call Albany to have them mail me a card because my employer from the middle east did not supply me with a NYS identification recorder. True story.

I'm so far behind in the process now I probably won't make my leave date of July 16.

shades of aqua

I had such a beautiful dream last night. I was walking through a lovely forest full of redwoods and giant ferns. The sun was beaming strands of brilliant light to the forest floor. I could hear a few insects, a few birds, but I knew I was alone. I came upon a small hot spring. The surface sparkled in shades of aqua. I removed my clothes and slipped in. I drifted in the floating abyss. I was overcome with peace and happiness. I wanted to stay there forever.

bus bombs

yah. i've upgraded. car bombs aren't enough for this gal. i created the bus bomb. it's super sized guinness gluttony at its finest! woot.

but it was a little hot in the sun so we retired to the fanned living room for a pitcher of mojitos. which is now gone :)

i love durnk sundays. i love boys that aren't jerks. i hate girls that are double standard magicians. i'm drunk and i didn't have 12 toooters. we ordered food.

the vortex of you

My shell might be tough. My eyes may be vacant. But there is still a soul in here. Push me out the door on a lonely road. My hands and knees aren't wounded. But my veins still run with blood. I'm not a fucking super hero. I don't always know the answer. But I do what I think is right. I fight to protect the genuine. You call me a monster.

Will the weak. Feed the fire. Propagate the pitiful. Clap for the crazy.

Why can't you SEE???

son of a motherless goat!

I just got an e-mail that says in fact they screwed up and I do have to take ALL of those medical exams before I leave!

I don't even have a doctor here. Supposedly the lady I saw in high school might still be around but I don't think a small town doctor can do all those tests. How do you even walk into an office and say "I'd like chest x-ray please". It's not like they give you a hypochondriacs menu to select your testing options.

I attended a bachelorette party at the Chocolate Bar last night. The place is a lot smaller and not as fancy as I imagined it. These two older guys were hitting on us and it was pretty gross. Seriously, they approached me and said, "We just want to put it out there that we both got waxed today. Our backs are clean". Who SAYS that???

hallelujah!

I got the loan I applied for, I don't have to do all those medical tests, and I have an official leave date! July 16.

Even better, the route they have me on sends me on British Airways! This means I get a full fledged Boeing 747 on a good airline. Not that puny crap Continental stuck me on for 9 hours from Berlin.

Now I can get back to concentrating on packing/storing my things and completing my visa paperwork/security check.

Oh, and carey, carbombs this weekend fo sho. I gots the Jameson and Baileys, you bring the Guinness!
