I need some motivation.
I need a break.
I've been cranky for like 4 days now and I don't like it.
Someone make me smile.
All I want to do now is play Guitar Hero, and I can't.

It's Thursday, and I'm not going to Roadhouse. Sadness. I feel like a fatass just sitting here watching TV. It's because I am dead tired. It's 9:30 and my eyes are clooooosing. Plus, I am enjoying watching some trashy celeb show on VH1. Sometimes I think it would be nice to be an heir to some great fortune like the people I'm watching now, minus all the rehab, drug problems, lack of privacy, annoying people around, rooms for just wrapping presents, and trashy VH1 shows made about you.
It's Eccentric Night at Bell's tomorrow. Are you ready? Whatever shall I wear?
I'm starting this thing back up again. Come back and read it EVERYDAY! If you do not, I will find you.
I'm getting my job for real tomorrow morning. Well, wish me luck anyway. I should sleep.
It's good to be back loves. Leave it to a night at Burdick's to put me in a great mood.
(The pic is not from tonight at all, but I don't have any from tonight or as of late since I am without camera. But it's of me & Bridget & that's who I went out with tonight, her & the good people of Holiday Inn.)
