S: Well, we are gonna hit Canoga...
Me: Mmm....(pause) what?! No, Canoga is a parallel street to this street and so is Topanga..
S: Uhm, well this street is going to intersect with Canoga and it's soooooo faaaaaar awaaaaay from hooooome (yes she did complain haha)
Me: No, you are not listening to me!! (now I have stopped and decided to explain by using crazy gestures)..We are here and Topanga is on our left side, parallel, and Canoga is on our right...We just have to keep walking straight to hit our street and make a right...
S: Hmmm, let me get this straight....We are here (showing by hands) and Topanga is there? And Canoga is there? But how???
Me: You are joking right?? No, really? Are you serious?? (I realize she is) Ok, when we hit Sherman Way we were walking on Topanga. We made a left on Sherman Way. Right?
Me: Ok, so we walked 2 streets down, or so, and made another left on Owensmouth (funny name)??
Me: Which means we have Topanga on our left side and all we have to do is keep walking straight and we will get to our street!
S: Huh...ok, I get it...I think we should get back to Topanga..
Me: WHAT?! WHY??!!! NO, we are gonna walk straight forward and you are gonna trust me.
S: (Several blocks later) Why did you have to choose streets that resemble alleys? We are gonna get killed and I am gonna blame you!!! You pass a house and think it's pretty but when they take you and kill you, you will not think the same way...
Me: (laughing) Uhm ok..these are all residential streets and there are cars passing all the time and people walking....
S: What are they gonna see if someone pulls me in to the bushes??!!
Me: You are not tiny (no she is not fat either) that no one will notice...besides there are fences all over..what are they gonna do? Pull you through one of the tiny holes? Come on now! Keep walking we are getting closer...
S: You said that half an hour ago..
Me: Well, as I recall it, you told me the bank was not too far away and you thought this would be great exercise..
S: What do I know? Now you listen to me?!
You can imagine our conversations about S's fear of being dragged in to a house and being held hostage or killed and me trying to rationalize why it will not happen. Well, when we came home S. asks me where our neighbors building is. I tell her she really has no sense of localization and she simply says "I told you so...I base it all on memory"...I say no more..We get closer to the house and I show her the building, which on the street, is on our building's right side she goes "Ooooohhhhh ok, now I know" and keeps smoking her cigarette. We get inside the door and I take of my shoes (wore the totally wrong shoes!!!) n my feet were sooo swollen and blisters everywhere. I decided that I was gonna put them in hot water and when I put my feet in, the darn water is freezing. I drain the water and wait for it to turn hot and feeling with my cold hands (yes I know..cold and cold turns warm) the water felt warm but putting my feet in, the water is cold. I give up the idea of soaking my feet and pout my way back to S. in the living room. I start feeling hungry and get a bit grumpy...I tell S. I am craving chocolate covered gummy bears because of a certain someone and those are nowhere to be found. I need something to still this need. We go to Vons (on Topanga I might add) and walk (me limping haha) around there for a while and return with some goodies. I had one bite and was over my craving. Now I realize I am hungry so thinking about what I can eat while watching a movie and listening to Nala farting on my lap...She has been doing that A LOT lately...The other night I actually felt the damn vibration while she is lying on top of my covers!!! Oh, long entry today yet a small excerpt from my day...Until later beloved ones
(Someone has a sweet tooth :) Talk about tiny yet STRONG!! They work hard for their money lalala)

My body is so heavy..I couldn't sleep last night at all so getting out of bed this morning was awful, my head weighed a ton...Every time my eyes would shut I would wake up from something, of course one of the things were my neighbors fighting but luckily it didn't last long at all...I just feel so restless because I cannot do anything right now, I hate waiting!!! I just want this to be solved and Lord knows that I will definitely call A's friend A. because that girl can make a grown man cry if she pleases without making an effort...Need her strength in this :(
I don't like to write too much negative so I will keep it short today...
Yesterday we went out to dinner with S's Swedish friend E. and that put me in a better mood quickly. She was the only blonde girl at the restaurant (it was middle eastern) and when we walked in we were hit by the Hookah scent (smells good because it smells like candy). Everyone were smoking and luckily the place was outside so great ventilation, since I am allergic to cigarette or any kind of smoke it would have been hell for me to stay there but like I said ventilation was good, I just smelled the flavor of the different Hookahs. We had good food (probably because we were all starving). Before my collapse I spent the whole day cleaning or as S. calls it, cleaning frenzy hahaha....I vacuumed and dusted and then I found myself on all fours scrubbing the floor...with Clorox YUCK!!! (my mom loves the smell of Clorox but I cannot stand it so I was using rubber gloves!). Since we don't have any Swiffer cloths left, I had to improvise by cutting an old tank top and scrub on all fours...After all the wildfires we have had here the floor was almost black because ash would come in from under the door...It is easy to say I was completely exhausted when I was done...Now I know why my mom is so petite hahaha. She is always cleaning (surgery can be performed on our floor) and if she could she would drink Clorox hahah (her words I swear). I was talking to my sister the other day and she was telling me:
D: Mom is cleaning and saying how much she loves the smell of Clorox...yuck it stinks!! Every Friday it's the same story!!!!
Me: Yea, I can't stand it at all!!! We are not our mother's daughters when it comes to this hahaha
D: (Pause) Dude, seriously it smell sooo bad!!! You know what? They should put mom's picture on the Clorox bottle...Or put her in the commercial, she would not have to act at all!! Spokesperson for Clorox! That's our mom!! She would love it so much, she would probably clean the whole studio for real hahaha
Me: We should give mom a lifetime supply of Clorox, she would be joyous..
D: I was planning on giving her a bottle of perfume with the scent of Clorox...She would walk around sniffing it all day hahhaha
Me: Yea, sounds good except it is kinda DANGEROUS hahaha..Lose a couple brain cells hahaa..but at least she would lose them smiling hehe
D: *sigh* Our mom is special....
Dunno how I thought of this conversation but I did hahah...
(My mom's name and picture belong on this oh so boring bottle haha)
Now I am text yelling at S. and her lack of ability to use names or any clarification of any kind. We can be sitting talking about something and then she changes the subject (in her head) because she was thinking about something, leaving the rest of us looking like question marks!!! She just did the same, I was texting about Swiffer and a while earlier I had told her my manager had the computer box from FedEx at her office the whole time without telling me anything (I called and asked). While texting about Swiffer S. says,
"so she had the box."
I am thinking she is saying H. has a box with Swiffer cloths and was asking why she didn't give em to me when I was cleaning yesterday...S. laughs and says "no, our manager has your box?" WTF, talk about jumping back and forth between subjects without any warning.
S. please spare us more confusion when talking to you and tell us everything that is going on in your head during a conversation and not just excerpts so we have to guess what you are talking about.
Sometimes talking to her is like talking to a chicken with no head!!! :P
Well it is time to take sleeping beauty next to me (Nala) out for a walk and pick up my box so I can send out my computer to bad Dell. Until next time lovelies

I understand why my friends call me book nerd..I get lost in my books and will finish a novel in one day...Sometimes I do not eat and stay up very late, or not go to sleep until I am done. I once finished a Harry Potter book in one night because I was so intrigued :) yes, I am a Harry Potter fan hahhaa...I read books and watch movies to disappear from this world and enjoy another time and in some cases another world. Now I have taken a break from my book but in the back of my head it's all about the world of Duncan and Gwynne hahahah....can't wait to get back to my reading...Reading is like therapy for me I have realized...
When I was a kid my parents were very strict when it came to bedtime...me and my brother had to go to sleep at a certain hour (unlike my spoiled sister :P) and the only time my parents would let me stay up was if I was reading a book. I have always had a passion for books, love the smell of old books and the turning page after page while indulging the words rushing off the page...anyways, I need to go back to my book because I have taken a too long of a break...Until later fellow readers...

(WTF!! Or as S. would say...what the fruit?!! Just too funny!)
So tomorrow is Valentine's day, BS day if you ask me. No I am not bitter, it is just that there should not have to be a specific day to celebrate love. It should be celebrated every day!! Plus it has turned out to be too much of a Hallmark celebration!! Read this link to see what some ideas of how this day came about http://www.history.com/content/valentine/history-of-valentine-s-day interesting....girls and boys, show your loved one that they mean everything to you every day
Now I will go take some pills and bury myself under my covers...and call DELL to yell at them, or try to scream-whisper because my throat hurts so much haha...until later sweeties

So yesterday S. got a new keyboard for her computer (her old one was effed up) and she decided she was gonna take it apart herself with my help. I am a handy girl (I used to take care of the electronics back home hahah) so I was more than happy because I like doing it. The feeling when I have put everything together and it works, is amazing!!!!! So what happened was; she was unscrewing and putting everything in different places so they wouldn't mix up. Funny thing is after she put them aside and was about to put them back, she couldn't remember which group of screwes go where HAHAHA so she ended up screwing one wrong and it went through to the other side of the keyboard. Now she has a hole right next to the power button, so I simply said it will remind her next time to know where to put the screws and where they belong, or simply give it to a professional so they can do it :) She wasn't too happy (because S. loves her electric gadgets haha). Well now she has a nice clean keyboard with no hair from Nala lol.
I'm gonna grab something to eat so I can take some advil (or swedish alvedon) because I might be getting sick (damn you S. if you got me sick!!! I have been so good and stayed away from this for soo long and now it caught up to me) let's hope it is just lack of food and liquid. Until later beloved ones..
(I refuse to let you win! I will not get sick!!)

On Saturday S.F is having a goodbye party and I am not happy to go because that means she is really leaving. It's gonna be lots of people there so a lot of goodbye and tears....She is busy packing and things so there has not been a chance to see her as much as I would like to but it's not her fault at all. I don't have a damn car so I can't go see her or help her pack....feel like such a bad friend :(
Well I will come back with more things later but for now bye lovelies...

This movie was real fun but I think my expectations were too high...The chemistry between Dane Cook and Kate Hudson is awesome!! There were moments where I was thinking; ok come on already! Move the story forward...but the movie as a whole was good and entertaining. I think you should see it. If you wanna see a real asshole (Dane) at work then this is the movie to see.
Gonna force Nala to go out for walk (she hates the cold weather. Good thing is she takes care of her business very quickly so our walks are very short) so I will talk to you later...Until then
(The King of couch potatoes, Al Bundy haha...his Queen, who actually takes the prize as couch potatoe, is not by his side this time)
I left my phone outside and S. was kind enough to bring it to my room and I see that A. called me several times plus left messages such as WAKE UP WOMAN! I put all my papers together and get ready to take the passport pics the government need for my work permit and wait for A. to come. She calls me from the market;
"babe what do you prefer, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigiot, or what?"
Me; "huh? Uhm I dunno...Where are you. I thought you were coming here and we would go get all the things together..."
A; "oh no, I thought it would be better for me to get it out of the way. So which wine hun. Chardonnay ok?"
Me; "sounds great just let me know when you get here."
She comes and we realize there are some things missing so we decide that after I have taken my pics and send out the package we will go to the market. We get to CVS to take the pics, they tell me the lady taking the pics will be back in half an hour. I tell them I don't have half an hour I wanna do this now. They say well there is another CVS market further down the street. So me and A. drive there and 20+ mins later I have 6 copies of a picture where I am smiling looking like I want to kill someone. Mind you to take the picture took like 2 mins, to develop it took 5 mins but for the lady to fix everything and help another customer, before ringing me up added to more than 20 mins. While I am waiting for her to come back so I can pay for my pictures I realize I left all my papers at the other CVS. I call S. and ask her to call the other CVS and tell them to see if my papers are still there and if so then just keep them until I get back. We leave the store as soon as I paid and hurry back to the other store. I get there and the guy at the register asks if the CSUN papers are mine. I get so happy they did not throw them out and I take the papers. I realize Mr. salesman went through my papers because the paper where it states CSUN is the last page. I didn't care as I took my papers with my new pics and was ready to mail them out. I check that I have everything and "I HAVE TO STAPLE THEM?! WTF!!!" I call S. for the 500th time in less than an hour and ask her to come down and bring a stapler before I head to the post office. We get to the post office and as I put the package in the box a weight lifts off my shoulders and all of the sudden I get this rush of joy and I let out a scream (thinking we were alone in there). I go to throw some papers and guess what, we were not alone at all. I walk shamefully out of there but still with a smile on my lips. Finally! The papers that have haunted me for soo long are now out of my hands and now all I have to do is wait. We went to the market and bought what was missing, A's treat (again my sweet sweet beloved friend thank you!!!), and headed home to be welcomed by a wonderful scent and a joyous dog. S. had started preparing the lasagna (A. suggested we would have that because I told her I have been craving it for a loooooooooong time. So typical A. always thinking of her friends).
S. makes the lasagna and I make the salad. When we made garlic bread A. tells me to be careful with the knife while cutting the bread. I tell her it is fine and she says; "that's what she said". Both me and S. stop what we are doing and look at A. "what? who said?". A; (casually) "the random girl." We crack up and I scream I will use that next time I get the chance. 30 seconds later the knife slips and I cut my index finger, deep. I let out a small ouch and keep cutting. A. looks over and sees the blood and takes the knife away so I can put my finger under water. I keep it there for a while until S. feels the water and yells; "COLD WATER WOMAN not lukewarm" I say; "But my hands are so cold already, the blood is as cold as it can get." Obviously they do not listen to my lame excuse and turn the faucet to the cold side and I stand there freezing while they are laughing at me. I turn to A. and say; "well, now you don't have to say that the random girl said that. You can say Amanda said that". We all laugh (on my expense as usual haha) and patch me up.
While we wait for the food to get ready we sip on the wine A. bought and oh wow it tastes horrible but me and A. continue drinking (don't ask why, we just did haha). We sit down to eat and OH MY GOD!!! THE FOOD TASTES SOOOO GOOOOOOOOD!!!!! You don't understand, the only one who can make amazing lasagna is my mamma but as she is in Sweden and not here so I cannot have it. But this lasagna just blew me away. S. I give you 5 stars out of 5!! Just wonderful. After I stuffed my face with lasagna, we wait for a while and then have dessert (strawberry ice cream, which is my favourite, and chocolate angel cake or something like that). When we were at the market A. asked if I wanted strawberry angel cake but I went for the chocolate. A very quickly noted I do not like chocolate! Well it looks good and light so it can't be too bad. I had two bites and then I was disgusted haha. We rented 2 movies (My Best Friend's Girl, because I love Dane Cook and Jason Biggs oh and not to mention Kate Hudson haha. We also rented The Secret life of Bees, a very beautiful movie starring Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, Alicia Keyes, Jennifer Hudson and more). We watched the movie with popcorn, and Kettle chips. Of course I had to experiment with flavors so I chose a flavor I had not tried before (salt and pepper) how bad can that taste? Well apparently very bad. A. looks at me and shakes her head like I told you so at the market missy. We enjoy the movie and then it is time for A. to head back home.
Now I am sitting on the sofa, with a full belly, writing this entry while thinking about my VERY productive day. Thank you A. for always making my days joyous and productive when we hang out. Thank you S. for making one of my favourite dishes sooo delicious!! Now I will go call my mother and recap all of what I told you guys. Until tomorrow sugar crumbs (think it's the whole cake thing that is still in my head haha)

What is it with us people that when we are in the middle of something painful we want to cry, yell and sometimes just die but when we have overcome it we look back and forget all the pain. We always say; I can do that again, it was not too bad...Interesting how the mind works. Even when we are happy, we forget why we were sad earlier until something happens to remind us of the pain. I say without sadness we do not know true happiness. When you have overcome a great obstacle the joy you feel is unexplainable so it is easy to forget what you had to do to achieve such joy. I guess what I am trying to say is; remember where you come from, what you had to do, take nothing for granted, appreciate what you have, because before you know it it might all be gone. I do not know how I got from writing about the gym to taking on the world..oh wait my hour is still not up so 300 is nothing compared to me!!! See you lazy butts at the gym!!!!
Here is what I put together (one of many sets haha) at polyvore.com. The dresses are by two amazing designers; Elie Saab (light) and Marchesa (black). Just so you guys know, I had to figure out on my own how to embed this image in my blog. It was not easy but I did it. When there is a will there is a way. I am advancing slowly within technology yeay!!!
Battle of the dresses - by rkh83 on Polyvore.com
I will put up more images now that I know how to do it so that you can see what kind of styles I like in fashion. Until next time darlings

I tried to leave him a direct comment on the woman's blog but it kept saying error so I will leave it here for him to read:
"Du sager att du lag pa 62:a plats pa listan, vem bryr sig? Anledningen till varfor folk ens laser din blogg ar for att se vad det ar for manniska som lamnar kommentarer som du gor. Har du inget vettigt att saga sa sag inget alls. Dina kommentarer ar ackliga och nervarderande. Jag kallar dig ackel for det du skriver, bryr mig inte om vem du ar. Du respekterar inte dessa kvinnor sa da respekterar jag inte dig. Show respect to get respect!"
"You say you were on spot 62nd on the list, who cares? The reason why people even read your blog is for them to see what kind of person is leaving these comments. If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all. Your comments are disgusting and degrading, I call you a creep for what you write, I do not care about who you are. You do not respect these women so I do not respect you. Show respect to get respect!"
Now I will tell you all ladies and men, do not ignore people like this! The women writing these blogs are sick of this guy and therefore it easy for them to just look past this moron but for someone like me it is hard to look past that. I refuse to simply close my eyes and let him get away with his writing. You will not leave comments of that nature on my blog and expect to get away in one piece, no sir! I know many of you will say that giving him attention is just what he wants but I will not sit quiet and let him keep doing what he does. I do not want to put his name out there for him to get more attention but if you keep writing nasty things your name will appear here and on several other blogs so that in the end you will have no other choice but to retire from the world of blogs or change your name. I am done letting people like yourself get away with your actions!
KNOW WHEN TO SAY STOP PEOPLE AND SAY IT!
Now I will retire to bed, all this justice fighting wears me out haha...

Completely different topic; Since doing the whole poylvore thing (mentioned in an earlier entry) I realized I really like to assemble outfits for other people. Go shopping and dress people up is awesome. I would not want to do it full time because I'd get bored but it is really fun to spend/waste time (when the financial means are there that is). Well, now I will take Nala out for a walk and enjoy the lovely screams of our neighbors (being sarcastic...and yes they are still together)...Until next time my lovelies
Monday, February 2, 2009
Anyways, I have a job, as a mystery shopper. Here is how it works; I receive a check (today it was $2660. Yea I wish I could keep it all but this is my life we are talking about haha) I have to take out $300 out of that amount and head out to nearest Wal Mart and evaluate the store. What I have to do is purchase a couple of products, write what I think about the quality and about costumer service as well as the cleanliness in the store. When I am done with that I have to send the remaining money via Western Union in order to see how well the transfer works. Then I have to email my employer (in England) and voila my work is done...Sounds interesting huh, this will be a completely new experience for me so I will tell you more tomorrow when I am done. For now I will make something to eat and pop in a movie...Until next time dear readers
