A day of remembrance..

In the spring, we celebrate our Independence here in the USA, along with the Memories of those who died or are fighting for those rights that we Won after a bloody war for our Independence. Now, in Autumn, we celebrate again.
For every person who complains about not having this or that. Or who bitches because there isn't enough time in the day to do everything they wanted to. For every child who needs a good bitch slap to learn respect.....
There is a soldier who stands. A soldier who has put his or her own wants and needs aside for those who cannot, or will not, fight. A soldier who thinks never of his or her self, but for those 'back home', that he or she is fighting to protect. Fighting to not just protect their lives, but their freedom to be selfish and ignorant.
And for every Soldier who's gone overseas, who's fought a battle for his or her country... There is a family who misses them. And a grave stone for those who will not return. A stone for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for what they believed in.
So let us take a moment today from our busy schedules - After all, if you can take the time to look at Facebook or Youtube, you can take 5 minutes to do this. Take a moment, simply to bow your heads and pray for the souls of those who are Fighting 'the enemy', for those who are Fighting the Pain here at home, and for those who have lain down their weapons because they cannot fight anymore.
Take a moment and Pray for them. For their families and friends. It doesn't matter what faith you are, or if you have no faith at all. Think of someone OTHER than yourself today.
I know my thoughts are not of what I want today.. No..
My thoughts are this.
Thank you Grandpa Earl, Grandpa Jack. You both fought long and hard. I salute you.
Thank you Momma. While you never went overseas, you were a soldier, and you taught me how important it is to fight for what's right - even if the world stands against you.
Thank you Amber. Whether you know it or not, you're an inspiration to me when I need it. You taught me in college that sometimes you don't get what you want, or what you plan. And I thank you for that. Your friendship, your laughter, and your Light kept me going at times when I just wanted to quit.
And thank you to every other Soldier and Veteran who has or will serve our Great Nation. Today is your day.
I salute you.
It's weird how some things come to us. I was getting dressed just now and
happened to look up at my shelves over my one dresser. On the second
shelf is the theatrical skull Stephan gave me for my Forensic's Final
Project. Sitting on the skull is one of my tiaras.

I may not be beautiful or smart in the conventional sense.. but I EARNED that thing
TWICE... I would have earned it more times over if my family would have
continued going to Smokerise. That means someone out there, not in my
family, saw the Diamond in the Rough within me. Someone who knows
nothing about me.. They saw who I was.. and what I could be...


So I say this.. Screw all of you out there who have ever picked on me.
Screw ever last one of you who ever thought you were better than me
because I don't wear the latest fashion or makeup.


Yes, I've had to get by with the kindness of others in the past.. but
this Damsel is sick of feeling sorry for herself because the world
thinks she's a pauper.

I'm a PRINCESS damn it! I have a
message for all the assholes out there. I'm going to be a GODDESS one
day, so straighten up and learn some RESPECT, because your judgement day
WILL come. Maybe not by my hand.. but it WILL come!

I now return you to your regularly scheduled mind numbing internet scrolling.

amendum

For all i might bitch complain or moan about being single... i know i am not alone. Physically it,might feel that way, but I know i always have at least one person i can turn to. And for that i will be forever thankful.

MERRY CHRYS[T]MAS!

I know someone out there is bound to ask, so I figure I'll nip it in the bud. Also, I will likely be doing sketches for people's Chrys[t]mas gifts this year, no promises on when the delivery will happen considering school and everything else going on around here.

Everything I want this year has a purpose, and hopefully I can get some of the major pieces parts so I don't have to scramble the funds together closer to Sept to get this stuff!

Item 1: http://www.cosplayhouse.com/shop/shop_goodsview.asp?g_code=20081224854110
Measurements to get it are:
Height: 5'4"
weight: 198 lbs {YAY! I lost weight!}
waist: 42
chest: 49
hip: 48
Shoulder breadth: 21
Sleeve arm: 27 [ they want from spine to wrist]
Inseam: 28

Item 2: http://www.cosplayhouse.com/shop/shop_goodsview.asp?g_code=20081224857163 The wig. XD

Items 3 & 4: http://www.amazon.com/wishlist/31XS3Y69TNGBU/ref=cm_sw_r_fa_wl The contact lenses and the vampire fangs. XD

There are other things on the Amazon wishlist I would be geeked to have too, otherwise they wouldn't be there. but still. The pieces for the Seras Victoria costume I REALLY want.

On another note.... You're likely wondering what the hell "Chrys[t]mas" is. I have officially changed the holiday from Christmas. I was talking to a friend and could not for the life of me type Christ. I kept typing Chrys, So I changed the holiday name. *nods sagely* .... Chrys was ecstatic. O.o
Do NOT get a bank account through PNC. I've had one for years, and I will be closing it in the next week.

5Dollars overdrawn. That's it. I transfered funds in to cover it. Didn't get hit once. Not even twice. Three times? No.

I got hit with FOUR DAMN overdraft charges. FOUR!

Then I'm informed that the "Available balance" - Which is equal to your "Ledger Balance" Minus any pending transactions - is no longer that. Now it's an "Adjustable Available Balance"..... Which means it can differ from $0.05 off of your actual funds to being over $500 different!

This is a croock of shit, and I'm closing my account. Word of advice to any of you.. Don't bank with PNC.

Life's Update... version 2


The past week has been interesting.
Tuesday, last week, we were at fencing practice. It's COMMON KNOWLEDGE around here that mom just had surgery on her leg. This ... this.. Amerika-jin no make grabs mom's foot by her toe [of the leg that just had surgery], pulls up.. and SHAKES HER LEG. WTF is wrong with this guy!? Mom yelled at him and he proceeded to try again! .... read further for the concequences of this idiot's actions...

Thurs/Fri, don't remember which, I went with a couple of friends and saw Wolverine - GOOOOOOD movie, Gambit needed a bigger part in my opinion.

Saturday, I hung out with the same friends at a Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournament. The kid I beat I was ready to deck. There's a difference between playing Yu-Gi-Oh! and playing Duel Monsters. Duel Monsters is the card game in the anime.. We are not IN the anime.. and that kid is NOT Yugi Mutou/ Yami no Yugi. I swear, he almost hit someone like 2 or 3 times with the way he was drawing his cards. Then he's got this superior attitude about everything and proceeded to give me a really dirty look when I beat him... In two turns. {Tributed Sorcerer of Chaos [ATK: 2300] and Dark Magician [ATK:2500] to summon Fog King [ATK: Combination of tributed monster's attack -> 4800]} So I won at a full 8000 HP Gauge, while he hit a bit wooping 0.

Since no one knows his name and he wants to be in the anime, I have dubbed him "Weavil" {Yugioh fans should get the reference}.

Sunday was blah. Same friends came over and hung out with me at my house.

Monday sucked. While everyone was out having fun.. *I* got stuck cleaning. XP
The only bright side is that the living room can now be occupied by my friends - Chrys is in a power wheelchair. No school due to Memorial Day.

Today.. started interesting enough. Get to class, take a final exam that is NOT what our teacher said it would be - No one was happy. Finish test, hand over, get progress report..

Found a big fat 0%-F next to one of my homework assignments. In "Intro to PC" .. an F?! On an Assignment!? WTF?!?!?!?! Suffice to say, I'm NOT happy. If I get less then a 90% as my final grade, I WILL be talking to the Chairman of the Dunmore ITT Tech. Mark my words.

I get home. Mom goes to Doctor's appointment to get her stitches out. HA! yeah right. Thanks to that make last tuesday, her incision reopened and she's stuck for another 2 weeks. Not only did it reopen, but it's inflamed and possibly infected! The @$$hole!!!!! UGH!

And people wonder why I don't like dealing with humans..

Life's Update...


Some may remember me talking in the past about how I got fired from Walmart on March 14th, 2008 and how mom got injured at work five days later. How for a year doctors wouldn't listen to her and couldn't figure out what's wrong with her leg...

Well...

At the 1 Year and 1 month and twenty day mark {give or take a day or two}.. two days before the full moon and three before Mother's Day...

Mom had her surgery to fix the Paraneal Nerve Intrapment that has been on her MRIs since April of 08. The injury that doctors have completely ignored.

Thank you, Dr. Laporta, for helping my mother!

And F*** You, DoL, for screwing with her surgery dates.

For the first time in 9+ months, mom can move her toes AND her ankle. The pain in her foot and, minus the pain from the incision, her pain over all has DRASTICALLY decreased.

At the rate of her healing already, we predict she'll be on the Battle Field at Pennsic War THIS YEAR!

Maybe Next year I can drag her off to Anthrocon and the world can meet Mother Nature. ;) Yes, my mother had a fursona.. scary, huh? {Look up http://dellie-dolile.tripod.com }

Anyways, I'll keep the world updated.

I need to get all the data together so I can put together a packet to send to Mystery Diagnosis or Diagnosis X...
Colds suck.

That is all.

thank you.
