Harriet Winslow

Apparently before Family Matters, Harriet Winslow was a character on Perfect Strangers.
I don't know if this is common knowledge, but I had no idea until today.
This "clip" is about 10 minutes long, but the evidence is revealed in the first few.
There's no significance - I just found it interesting. I hadn't realized there was a spin-off from Perfect Strangers.

My mommy is a robot.

At about 8:40 this morning my mom went into the operating room to have both of her hips replaced.
I'd been freaking out about it for the past few weeks.
I was really scared for her.
As it turns out, the surgery was successful and she's in the recovery Or wherever they put you.
I hope this helps her.
She's been in a lot of pain for a really long time and the doctor kept coming up with all kinds of things that was wrong with her.
She was taking all kinds of medicines that weren't helping.
The scariest part is that she's not even 50.
Hooray for new hips!

Hooray for Barack.

Wanted to celebrate.
My phone died.
It was too cold.
I came home.

I have to miss out. :(


Apparently I'm Elaine.
In more ways than one.
Next time you watch Seinfeld, think of me and it'll all make sense.
I mean, I'd rather be Elaine than George.


I think I already wore these clothes this week. To work.

I dreamt about the bathroom again last night but this time it was my mom's bathroom.
I dreamt about the bathroom at her house before.

I hung out with Ana and Jon last night.
I feel extra motivated.
So motivated that when I got home at 12:30, I couldn't sleep so I painted until 2.
Something great is going to happen.

I wish I was painting right now.

Ana and Jon and I found a bunch of umbrellas in a trash can.
One of them had a handle shaped like a swan's head, but it was broken.

I forgot my camera.
I saw a lot of stuff I wanted to take pictures of.

My life is coming together.

End journal entries.

Dream Dictionary

Christy and I were discussing weird dreams that we've been having.
I've been dreaming that I either can't find a bathroom, or that I'm in a bathroom that's just a toilet in the middle of a public room.
Monday I dreamt that the toilet was all clogged up.
Last night I dreamt that I was out of toilet paper.
Sometimes I dream that I have to find a bathroom for my little sister.

To dream that you are in the bathroom, relates to your instinctual urges. You may be experiencing some burdens/feelings and need to "relieve yourself". Alternatively, it may symbolize purification and self-renewal. You need to cleanse yourself, both emotionally and psychologically.

To dream that you are in a public restroom with no stalls, signifies your frustrations about getting enough privacy. It may also indicate that you are having difficulties letting go of old emotions. If you reveal these feelings, you are afraid that others around you will judge and criticize you. If you dream that you are in a bathroom meant for the opposite sex, then it suggests that you are overstepping your boundaries.You have crossed the line in some situation.

To dream that you can not find the bathroom, signifies that you are have difficulties in releasing and expressing your emotions.

To see a toilet in your dream, symbolizes a release of emotions or getting rid of something in your life that is useless. The dream may also be brought about by your full bladder and is attempting to get you up and go to the bathroom. If you are cleaning the toilet, then it means that you are starting to shed your shell or lose your inhibitions.

To see a clogged toilet in your dream, signifies that you are holding and keeping your feelings to yourself. Your emotions have been pent up too long and you need to let go of the negative feelings.

To see an overflowing or flooded toilet in your dream, denotes your desires to fully express your emotions

Our Novelty President.

I'm happy that Obama is our new president.
I voted for him.
Just about everyone I know voted for him - even my mom who was at one time convinced that he was the Anti-Christ. (She reads a lot).
I feel like there are some people who think that now this country is going to be like on that episode of Chapelle's Show where black people received Reparations.
It's my feeling that Obama wants to fight for all people - he wants to bring us together...not just come in and represent the ghetto in the White House.
I just hate that people aren't taking him seriously.
Personally, I find this to be a disgrace:

Thursday was Jhyda's birthday.
I hadn't seen her in months.
We got Mexican food at this place by the office.
There were about 7 of us.
It was really nice.

Side story: As soon as Jhyda sat down at the table, she told me she had my dvds. I had no idea what she was talking about. She handed me season 2 of Chapelle's Show. I'd been looking for it for....ever. I couldn't image what I could've done with it!! Haha I was really sick a little over a year ago and Jhyda came by to check on me and bring me some dinner. I was on 2 different antibiotics as well as pain medicine. Apparently I insisted that she borrow it. hahaha I vaguely remember.

So we had a nice dinner and I'm really glad I got to see her.
I hope to see her more often.

Chest Nuts

Artwork by Christy Griswold.

Christy and I are starting a band.
We're the Chest Nuts.

Fun Night.

I feel like Andrew WK in this outfit.

This morning this girl got on the train who was rather unfortunate looking.
She had stringy hair, a mole on her chin, and beady eyes.
Her lips were big and chapped.
She was eating a bagel with cream cheese, and put her hand at my eye level on the pole.
She had dirty fingernails.
She also had cream cheese on her big, cracked lips and it was making me nauseous.
Even after she was finished eating, she made no attempt at removing the cream cheese.
She had some book with puzzles in it, and she ripped a page out to work on.
The puzzle was called, "Don't mean a thing (encore)"
It was the weirdest thing I've ever seen.
There were numbers and rows of boxes and she was just filling in certain boxes with her pencil.
I'm assuming at the end there'd be a picture left, but I don't really get how you solve the puzzle.

I'm not one to judge - especially things that people can't help, but I also noticed that she was wearing a wedding band.
That desperately made me want to know what her "other half" is like.

There were a bag of fortune cookies at work today.
Most of them were broken or empty.
I saw one that wasn't closed all the way and I took it.
The fortune said this:

Never trouble trouble till trouble troubles you.

I love it.

I Think I'm Sick Of The Internet.

I'm adding the internet to my detox list.
I should actually make a list.
But I won't name specific names when listing a person.
I'll just make up names for people or better yet, I'll use initials.

1. The internet.
2. PK and anyone else who's constantly negative.
3. PW & Co.
4. Andre - well, and drinking altogether.
5. Stupid parties.
6. Fried chicken - sorry know I <3 you...but this relationship is hurting me.
7. Chocolate. This hurts me more than it hurts you. :(

Might I just add that there's a time and a place to use the old, "This is me - if you don't like it, then I don't need you" line.

Anyway, see you when I get back.

In Preparation for 2012.

Alanzo: what it do RC
me: Today is too blah for me. I want to stay home.
Alanzo: me too a ave stuff I just NEED to finish which requires a home visit/stay

Sent at 7:45 AM on Wednesday
