"But there's nothing cheap as words"

It's been a loooong time since I last posted, so I should probably file some updates.

News item the first: I am not in New Orleans. I no longer have any definite schedule for that, or even definite plans to go. There's a lot up in the air (again) right now.

Second: I did not get the Engstrom's job that caused me to give up my NOLA housing. Despite Erin's best efforts, the owner wanted someone with jewelry/retail experience, so no go. On a tip from her, though, I applied at Maurice's and had what felt like a successful interview yesterday. I have no idea how that will shape up, though.

Third: my sister hasn't spoken to anyone in the house since Tuesday and nobody knows why. She will be in the room with others if she must, but she will behave as though no one else is present and leave as soon as possible. I feel like, at 23, this behavior is about 10 years late and not really acceptable. BUT, no one will confront her about it because she's a heinous bitch when criticized for any reason. For all the joking she and Dad do about why she's still single, I'm pretty sure it's because she's really awful to be around a lot of the time. You know, just minor stuff.

Fourth:I have finally hit/passed 20 pounds! I'm down 22lbs as of this morning, and 45lbs from my goal. A third of the way there! I don't know what I'll do to celebrate yet, but I hope I'll think of sometihng good :D

I'm tired of numbers: I've gotten on Google+, which seems a lot like Facebook was in about 2004 when I first joined - it's nothing like as frenetic as Facebook is now, but maybe only because I don't know that many people on it? It's good, though, and I'm glad I get to be on it.

In other news, I've been really bored recently and trying to find things to do. Brigitte's been busy being in the hospital (!!), and Bidner's busy with her new house, so I don't feel like I can just call either of them up to hang out. Fortunately, Nick's been coming up with ideas for a story he wants to write, and talking to him about that has been a lot of fun, and it made me want to work on some stories that I've had kicking around for way too long. So I've been doing some of that. But when I can't come up with anything, or can't concentrate, I'm back to square one, because Nick's never home when that happens lol

Also, I didn't see Harry Potter last night. I wish I had, but I had no one to go with, and I was supposed to be in a different state, and I didn't get organized at all, so I missed my very last chance to wear my horrible constructed-in-4-hours robe from high school when we went to the 2nd or 3rd movie's midnight show. It's a shame, but I guess that's what life does to people. I hope to see it this weekend, but who knows?

Boo I'm being all melancholy now and that won't do. So I'll go find some other way to entertain myself now, and try not to let so much time go by before I remember to post again.
