damn the man

today was the longest day ever.. and i am very mad at all things standardized... i had to take this horrible test today.. the test starts with a 45 minute essay on whether laws should be implemented to enforce courteous behavior... now i spent 10 of my 45 minutes thinking about what a stupid essay topic this is... doesn't matter.. i had to finish the stupid essay.. so i finished, just as the time was up.. but i never got to re-read my essay.. and therefore, i am not sure that my essay even made sense.. seriously.. 45 minutes is not a long time to complete an essay..
after wasting 45 minutes on the stupid essay, i had to waste another hour on stupid, fill in the blank, mulitple choice, bubble type questions.. either way i am done.. but i am tired.. i have now had one very full glass of wine, and ben wont let me have another.. so i am off to bed.. i have to work tomorrow.. i'm closing for my friend kit.. it's been about 4 years since i last closed the outback.. and it's been almost that long since i've worked a sunday.. should be fun.. night..

pepsi adict

i love all things pepsi.. pepsi is my comfort food.. being the nervous person that i am.. i need a lot of comfort food... i have tried to quit.. i stopped buying the costco pack so that i wouldn't have it in my home anymore.. but now i just search out vending machines and fast food places.. i am a pepsi junkie.. do they make a patch for this sort of thing?

Ugly passport photo's

Ben is getting his passport... Chara is driving to Orange County

So they like my birth certificate, but do not like Chara's

so she has to drive up north to get a real one. that sucks

and why are passport photo's so bad...

second only to drivers licenses


Chara Update...
Time to drive up to Orange County: 60 Minutes
Time to find the right building: 90 Minutes
Actual time to get new birth certificate and passport: 20 Minutes
Dealing with the wonderful thing we call US Government: Priceless

we did it...

well.. ben and i are going to thailand.. and we are so excited.. yesterday we bought our tickets.. that was a pain.. but i busted out some killer negotiating skills... and got our tickets for 100 bucks cheaper than they wanted to sell them.. so $1700.00 later there is no backing out.. we leave for thailand june 8th.. now i've got to start worrying about stuff like: what to pack and how much xanax to take on the plane (the flight is about 14 hours and i plan on not remembering any of it)
