I Am A Proud
Of The Web
I wish Jevim would hurry up and hop online... it's almost 10 pm and I've spent most of my day lurking here at the computer, hoping he'll show up. We did get to spend an hour or so together earlier, but then Mom said "chow time" and I thought she meant dinner was ready, so I logged off and all, and ended up missing another 20 or 30 minutes I could have spent with Jevim. When I got back online, he was playing games, and then had to go talk to his dad and let his sister have the line. *sigh*
If I remember right, it was about like this last year, too. I wish we didn't have to be apart on Christmas Day.
A net friend of mine was on ICQ earlier and we chatted back and forth. He asked what I did today and when I said I'd been hanging out online for the most part, he asked if I didn't have any family around to do things with. So I told him myfamily for the most part is out in California, and when he said he was sorry, I told him it didn't really matter much anyway, because my new step-mother doesn't like us kids much anyway (kids? hah, I'm the youngest and I'm 26... just because she never had any children, does she have to be such a witch?), so my dad doesn't havemuch to do with us anyway. I hope he's happy with her, because I don't think any of my siblings like her at all, and I know my niece doesn't.
Yes, aren't I in an awful mood for christmas? Bah, humbug... I made out like a bandit, so to speak, but those things just don't make me all that happy. I want to be with Jevim... I miss him sooooo much. I spent some time chatting on IRC with some friends, and that was nice while it lasted, but I ended up heading off to take a bath and finish "Otherworld", and I never went back afterward.
Yes, I finally finished the first volume "Otherworld" and now I have to wait at least until July of next year to read the second book in the series, and that's if I'm lucky and the library has it in hardcover. Yeah, sure... I'll hopefully be with Jevim long before the series is complete. Anyway, I found my copy of "The Dragonbone Chair", also by Tad Williams, and the first book in the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn trilogy, so I've got it here in my lap and am considering rereading it. It's probably been at least six years since I read the first book, anyway.
I still haven't finished Mom's cross-stitch, and even though she's in bed, I'm not in any mood to work on it. She's one small reason for my bad mood, in that she goes to bed and her phone line rings and she expects me to answer it (when we both know it's most likely for her), when she has a phone right beside her bed. I don't like talking on the phone. I actually stayed on the line when her aunt called, to say hello, and she yelled out from the other room that she couldn't hear. Hello, I was on the phone too, I could have heard her without her screaming at me. *growl* Yes, I'm exaggerating, but I really don't care; I'm in a bad mood.
If Jevim were in a time zone behind mine, I'd try to call, but as it is, it's just after eleven there, so I'll have to sit and wait for him to show up. *sigh* Actually, all I really want to do is go to bed and go to sleep. I'm supposed to get up in time to go to Wal Mart at 6am, so I should be in bed already.
I was at least slightly productive today... I got some new underthings, so I cleaned out first my sock & undie drawer, then most of the rest of my drawers, and put away some of the clean clothes that were stacking up, all while I was chatting on IRC earlier. I also discovered that my cat had knocked down one of my little musical figures (made of plastic or resin) and broken it in two places, so I took it out to the kitchen and superglued it, and wound up supergluing my pinkie to my thumb. I had to use nail polish remover to get them apart again. Lucky for me, we had some, or I might have been stuck for a while. I remember doing that once when I was about nine or ten, but I didn't glue them all that tightly and I got them apart without any solvent, but this time I really did it good. But in the end, the things that were supposed to be glued stayed that way, and those that were not are back the way they should be.
I think I'll quit griping now... hope your Christmas was more exciting than mine...
