This is the translation of the word "Charity" in Japanese.

Michael from work sent this to me. He's been taking classes for speaking Japanese.

Oh and he introduced me to this game that I've been addicted to for the past weekend.... Insaniquarium

Recently I had a very humorous thing happen to me. I was told by someone 7 years younger then me that he had a crush on me. It was so out of left field that I took it as a complete joke played by some guys from the office. To make a long story short, I felt pretty bad for not taking this guy seriously, but also realized that it wasn't my fault. Either way, I'm bothered by the fact that he's now treating me pretty crappy since I've made the mistake of laughing at the situation. And for some reason it bothers me that I'm trying to not make him feel too bad, I try to talk to him, make him realize that I'm not too uncomfortable with the situation, even though I am slighty, and he is now telling me that he doesn't think we should talk anymore. Geez! I feel like, well then what's the point of trying to be nice. I guess his pride is hurt. But why treat me like crap when I'm trying to be nice about it? Oh well.

Saturday night I got home and in bed by 3:30am (well I guess technically that would be Sunday), either way I spent my day in Vegas for my friends Bachelorette Party. She's getting married June 28th. I have to admit I was completely dreading going. My very first time to Vegas brought back bad memories and since that first time Iíve not really considered Vegas a fun place to go. But I went. Either way I will have to say that I had a lot of fun and had an enjoyable memorable time. It was my sister, the bride, her cousin (maid of honor) and me that went. The other girls couldnít make it for some reason or other. But we were determined to have fun. Every time Iíve mentioned going to Vegas a particular friend keeps telling me ďwhat happens in Vegas, stays in VegasĒ. But honestly we did *nothing* that could be considered normal Vegas behavior. We were quite mellow actually.

The only thing that bothered me was the cousin/maid of honor. She is what you would call a perfect 9 on the scale of beauty yet she was the most insecure, self-absorbed, weak-minded, naÔve person Iíd ever met! I didnít know people like her existed. It was all about her, when it was supposed to be all about her cousinís wedding. She even prided herself on being more reserved then normal for her cousinís sake of course. I would love to give details but letís just say that I think itís really sad when someone who is beautiful has no personality, and the personality that they do have is extremely annoying. It made me thankful that I am far from perfect. Because being far from perfect helps me have a personality and character. The statement that struggles builds character is right. I think the struggles Iíve had with my weight and being insecure have helped me have 500 times more personality then this girl had. I know that seems conceited in myself but if anyone knows me and met this girl, then youíd probably agree!

And speaking of imperfections, right now Iím struggling. I have a wedding that Iím going to be in two weeks from now and I have no motivation to try and work on my weight and eating better and going to the gym. But I have no motivation for anything at the moment. Life has been chaotic and itís all I can do to wake up every day and go to work. I feel like Iím in a slump. I *know* Iím in a slump. I just need to get off my butt and start doing things. I think that will help. And so with that Iím going to go read my bible and start my afternoon out right!

Bye

So I was driving up the hill last night thinking about life. I actually was very reflective whereas normally I'm zoned. But I do believe it's because I'm usually carpooling and last night I was driving alone. It was late and I was pmsing so a lot of different emotions were running through my head. I was thinking back to my day off, Tuesday, and how I got sucked into a Judy Garland/ Gene Kelly movie (Summer Stock). I was eating lunch and flipping through the channels and got stuck on TMC and was so into the movie that I took a two hour lunch to finish it. Sometimes I wish life was as simple as the lives on the movies back then. No complications. No Depth. I know, what is life without depth. But sometimes life can get so complicated. I keep thinking about how simplistic the plots were, and what they are now.


By the time I got home it was just a passing thought. But I dislike that life has to be complicated. My life is *extremely* complicated.


I actually got a forward today that made some sense. And I see how it could work 99% of the time. It had you number a page 1-11 and then asked the following questions


1. FIRST, WRITE NUMBERS 1 THROUGH 11 IN A COLUMN
2. THEN, BESIDE THE NUMBERS 1 AND 2, WRITE DOWN ANY 2 NUMBERS YOU WANT.
3. BESIDE THE #`S 3 AND 7, WRITE DOWN THE NAMES OF MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITE SEX.
4. WRITE ANYONE`S NAME ( LIKE FRIENDS OR FAMILY .....) IN THE 4TH, 5TH, AND 6TH SPOT.
5. WRITE DOWN FOUR SONG TITLES IN 8, 9, 10, AND 11
6. FINALLY MAKE A WISH


1. YOU MUST TELL (THE NUMBER IN SPACE 2) PEOPLE ABOUT THIS GAME.
2. THE PERSON IN SPACE 3 IS THE ONE YOU LOVE
3. THE PERSON IN 7 IS ONE YOU LIKE BUT CAN`T WORK OUT
4. YOU CARE MOST ABOUT THE PERSON YOU PUT IN 4
5. THE PERSON YOU NAME IN NUMBER 5 IS THE ONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL.
6. THE PERSON YOU NAMED IN 6 IS THE YOUR LUCKY STAR
7. THE SONG IN 8 IS THE SONG THAT MATCHES WITH THE PERSON IN NUMBER 3
8. THE TITLE IN 9 IS THE SONG FOR THE PERSON IN 7
9. THE 10TH SPACE IS THE SONG THAT TELLS YOU MOST ABOUT YOUR MIND
10. AND 11 IS THE SONG TELLING HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT LIFE


The outcome was hilareously ironic.


Well I'm outa here!

Ok so does anyone want to know what it's like to do technical support? Then click on the following link : IT Workers Suffering From New Form of Touretteís Syndrome. My manager sent this to me and I laughed sooo hard because it is soooo true! Below is a quote of what it's like to hear us technicians behind the scenes!


ďWhat is really scary is that when he is talking to the caller he is using the kindest, nicest voice I have ever heard. That caller even wanted to talk to his manager to compliment him on his exemplary service,Ē John G. said. ďBut then out of nowhere itís like Satan takes his place. Whatís worse is that theyíre all like thisÖĒ


Anyways I got a kick out of it and wanted to share it.


Bye!
