How awesome is it that Charla (my honorary best friend of all time forever and ever amen) and I have finally hooked up on AIM/AOL, so now we can chat and exchange old 90s music on AIM? Sweet.
Tyler’s streak is now broken. He has only been online for 4 hours. Such a tragedy. BUT, not all is tragic in his life. For he is embarking on a major life change. YES! It’s quite exciting! At about 4:30 pm tomorrow he will be delivering a 40-50 pound *baby. The baby will be in a giant black box. I’ve been reminding him to breathe, because this will not be an easy birth.
* baby = new mac G5 computer
Okay. So, my in laws graciously made me spaghetti for dinner tonight. I was VERY thrilled. She knows how much I love her spaghetti. Mmmmm. So yummy. And then, while we were eating, she said they were having salisbury steak tomorrow. I nearly jumped out of my seat. I invited myself to dinner for tomorrow. I’m not eating lunch in anticipation of that. Her salisbury steak is the bomb.com. I cannot wait. You have no idea.
And for today’s random piece of Ronni knowledge. I have been OBSESSED with my Shania Twain CDs lately–especially Come On Over, The International Version. I found it, and now I am just… listening to it all the time. On the computer. In the car. At work. It’s just an awesome CD. Ironically, I have Up, but I haven’t listened to it yet. I got it for Christmas. 2002. Oops. I think I’m going to bust it out at work tomorrow, if I can just stay away from my iPod. But it’s a good thing I have the iPod, ’cause the CD/DVD-ROM in my laptop at work is dying. Probably because of all the CDs I ripped. Meep.
Okay. So, I told myself I’d get to bed at 10:30. I don’t think that’s going to happen. Oops. Well, 11 then. Good night!
Greetings Ronica —
Here is your horoscope for Monday, August 23:
You’re in the mood to plan parties, shop till you drop and be totally extravagant — in all categories. Go easy on the plastic. You know what happened last time you felt like this.
I am totally speechless.
Why can’t I be rich? Is this not the cutest purse ever?
On to other things. I was freaking out over nothing. My review wasn’t bad at all. And I did tell my boss to leverage me for more Power Point and stuff like that, and he said he would! All he said was to be more proactive and more focused. The proactive one is a standing developmental issue, not a big deal. And the being more focused one is something I’ve been working on, and he said that I’d already addressed that issue a couple of months ago. So, it’s all good. Overall, it was very favorable. He gave me lots of compliments. And he said that he appreciate how friendly and approachable I am.
I’m so HAPPY it’s over! No more reviews until April 2005! WOOHOO!
I had traction this morning at the chiropractor. They took this funny head harnass thingy and hooked a 2 pound weight on it and then put it on me. I leaned my head back and held it like that for 2 minutes. Not the most comfortable thing in the world to happen to me, but it was fine. My shoulders were aching a lot during the procedure, and I had a hard time swallowing at first. But I got used to it, took some deep breaths and it was okay. I think I might consider getting my iPod out if the traction sessions get longer. Music makes things go much more quickly.

Answers to Helen’s (mindmirror) questions:
1. How do you deal with grief?
Not very healthily. I always feel like I need to be strong for at least one other person, so I tend to numb myself. Only to have some sort of meltdown later over something small and insignificant.
2. Do you think Bush will win the election?
3. What do you think of abortion?
I am very torn on this issue. On the one hand, I think it’s denying someone the chance to live. But on the other, what about the situations where a baby would not be warranted; as in the case of incest or rape? For ME, abortion is never an option. For me, I am pro-life. And I do believe that life begins at conception.
4. Is local or world news more important? (if you had to choose one)
Oh gosh! You’re asking the person who even rarely watches the news! Well, if I had to choose, I’d say local, only because it affects me so greatly in the here and now.
5. What is one of your buttons?
Hmm. One of my buttons. I think when people insult my faith. Funny; today in Sunday school, we were just taught that Christians are and always will be hated by the “world.” I find that to be true in a lot of cases. They think I’m a freak because I love Jesus, or they automatically assume I am a hypocrite, a fundamentalist, a legalist, uptight, prudish, all kinds of things. Without even getting to know me. So, being called those names–being thrown the trite anti-Christian insults is a button. Actually, any kind of uncalled for insult is a button for me….
