LaunchCast is really convienant! It's like the radio, minus the commericals. :D I heard "The Trouble With Love is" by Kelly Clarkson today. Kirsten and I agree. Good song, good song.

The Trouble With Love
Kelly Clarkson

Love can be a many splendored thing
Can't deny the joy it brings
A dozen roses
Diamond rings
Dreams for sale
And fairy tales
It’ll make you hear a symphony
And you just want the world to see
But like a drug that makes you blind
It’ll fool you every time

The trouble with love is
It can tear you up inside
Make your heart believe a lie
It's stronger then your pride
The trouble with love is
It doesn’t care how fast you fall
And you can’t refuse the call
See you’ve got no say at all

Now I was a once a fool it’s true
I played the game by all the rules
But now my world’s a deeper blue
I’m sadder but I’m wiser too
I swore I’d never love again
I swore my heart would never mend
Said love wasn’t worth the pain
But then I hear it call my name

Every time I turn around
I think I’ve got it all figured out
My heart keeps callin
And I keep on fallin
Over and over again
This sad story always ends the same
Me standin' in the pouring rain
It seems no matter what I do
It tears my heart in two

The trouble with love

THE CONTAINER STORE is the best store EVER!! Sara took me to the one that just opened in Pasadena. So...many...containers...for...everything. I was such a genius. I was planning on using the gift certificate that Kell had given me 3 years back. What did I do? I was so excited about going, I forgot the GC at home. PHooey! I already found what I want, Kel! You're getting me those rolling, 3 drawer, container carts to put in my closet. Thanks Kel!! ;D Must head back over there sometime.

After visiting the Best Store ever, Sara, Damon, Serena (bathroom story to follow), Caroline, and I met up with Jason at Macaroni Grill for some stuffed mushrooms that he says is The Best. As we waited to be seated, Serena and I paid a visit to the restroom (In this restroom, you can learn how to speak Italian as you pee. How time-efficient.) Anyways, when I was done, I wasn't sure if she already left yet, so I said, "Karen? Are you there?" No answer. "Karen? Ummm...Karen? Karen?" No answer again. I assumed she left. When I got to our table, she wasn't there. I heard Damon say the name "Serena." I thought, "Oh frick. That's why she didn't answer me. I was calling the wrong name!" Once again, I am such a geNU-IS. ;D

I decided to create my own pasta. Bowtie pasta...tomato alfredo sauce...mushrooms...sun-dried tomatos...spinach (I need iron.) So GOOD! I guess my "diet" has gone out the window. Again. Shucks.

Dinner was good. Dessert was good. Stole Jason's Mercedes (His is a real one, unlike my old Mercedes. ;D). Went for a joyride with Sara around the parking lot. Hot chicks, comin' through. Come on people. Move it or lose it. :D Was fun, but think the car is too high tech for us. We couldn't even find how to unlock the doors. Went back to Sara's apt, hung out a bit, and saw what happens when you mix CBB w/ ants. O_O We left Sara's apartment around 2 in the morning. I was again, such a geNU-IS. I decided to give Damon and Sara some time aloneto say their good-nights and walked off to push the button to cross the street. Two DRUNK white college guys sitting at the bus stop and this was our conversation:

Dude: Hey.
Me: -in head- Oh frick-a-zoids. Stay calm. Just keep walking.
Uh, hi.
Dude: How are you?
Me: -in head- Oh frick. Damoon. Hurrry!
Dude: *I have no idea what he was mumbling*
Me: -silence-
Dude: Amanda, can I f*ck you!!!

I tried positioning myself behind the light pole, hoping that they were drunk enough to think I just magically disappeared. It worked. I heard a Hello? and that was the end of it. I think they were so drunk they couldn't see my tummy and ass sticking out the pole. >:D All this fun college stuff I never got to try. Haha.

Damon was done by this time. We hopped in his car and headed on home. Thanks for the ride, Pirate Man!

Got home fairly fast. When I turned on the lights, I found this on my desk from DB.

A nice little note to come home to.  Posted by Hello

HOw nice. :D AND JUST BECAUSE YOU FIND ONE SOCK ON MY DESK DOES NOT MEAN IT'S YOURS CAUSE YOU HAVE ONE SOCK MISSING FROM YOUR LAUNDRY. :D That one sock's partner is in my sock drawer, all lonely now. It's imperative that I steal it back from you because that lands me an extra day not to do my laundry! (That's the primary reason I ever do my laundry. Either I run out of chonies or I run out of socks.)

Therefore, the tables have turned and DB, YOU'RE THE SOCK THIEF NOW! Muhahaha. >:D

Bamon! I did it!! :D Yes!!

Anywhoots, it's Helen's birthday this Sunday. We decided to take her out to CPK at Santa Anita after work today. She wanted to take a pic at one of those sketch booth things. Reaally cool. :D Heehee!

Me & Helen @ the SketchBot Booth! Posted by Hello

We all walked around the mall. Ponchos are the "It" thing at Macy's or something. There were so many! I look short and stubby in them. Heehee. Not my thing. ;D Afterwards, we went our seperate ways and here I am. :D

MOre lates!!

I was re-reading my last post.
I sounded like Kelly.
*High Five* Pij!

Where have my damn comments gone? No esta aqui. I'm gonna fix it right now.

This past weekend was fun-filled. Visit Bamon's blog and there'll be a nice little recap. Harold and Kumar was okay. Some parts we (Sara and I) didn't really get. Maybe we're not perverted enough. Princess Diaries was really cute. I loved her coronation dress! ;D Am going to get the soundtrack and DVD when it comes out. :D

Oh, the boss lady is coming. Eee!!

So the Gingerbread Man told me that this song reminds him of me...
Where's that cup of milk, eh? One leg at a time...Run Run, as fast as you can..

Holding Out For A Hero
Bonnie Tyler

Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?
Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn and I dream of what I need

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It's gonna take a Superman to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning strikes the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere watching me
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
and the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the end of the night
he's gotta be strong and he's gotta be fast
and he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Just cause I'm Xena, Warrior Princess,
I'm gonna get those gum drop buttons...>:P

Recap of Everything!

We had the BEST time! Lotsa laughs and lotsa pictures!

We didn't end up going on the glass-bottom boat due to lack of time. We did all the fun stuff though! Golf-carting, kayaking, and snorkeling!!

- To Be COntinued _

Friday, August 13, 2004

Okay...if you couldn't tell, I still have not fixed that stupid banner thing ^up^ there and still haven't fixed the comments page. :D

Like I say, procrastination always gets the best of me.

Tomorrow is the trip to Catalina. People attending such a fun event are Rach (of course), Bal, Helen, John, Kirsten, and me! We're, literally, waking up at the crack of dawn to get our asses out to the Long Beach dock at frickin 8 in the morning. O_O We've planned a day of fun! Kayaking, snorkeling, glass-bottom boat, and golf-carting (?)(You ride the golf cart up around the hills in Catalina to all the scenic points. *shrugs* Sounds good to me!)

After all this...we're heading to Santa Ana to this Vietnamese restaurant where they have these fried fish things that you wrap with rice paper, I think. It's suppose to be really really really good, as Kirsten and Helen claim it to be.

Am so excited. Exclamation point. Exclamation point.

Tuesday, August 10, 2004

Note to Me: Fix banner thingy ^up^ there. Looks horrible. Oh, and comments too.

This week, so far, has been REAALLLY good. *smiles*
^_^ Ra and Damon's favorite Car Hoe are coming back! Yes!

As for next week, I'm prepared for it to suck like hell. DB is leaving me. (Jackass, you're leaving on frickin' Sunday, when I'm back from Catalina. No matter what.) She's growing up, moving out and into an apartment down (or is it up? Am so horrible at Geography.) to Fullerton. It is going to be so QUIET around here. Damn.

Rach has booked her plane ticket for next Friday. She will be moving back to Thailand. :*(
It still hasn't hit me yet, that she's leaving....that she won't be there to say, "Sollie Hollie" when she's really trying to say "Sorry Hollie." She won't be there to teach me Thai. She won't be there for us to play with (i.e. Bonfire camp song). We won't get to laugh when she says "Hollie Potter" instead of Harry Potter. She won't be there to tell Helen to stop picking on me. Okay, enough.

We'll miss you, P' Yok!!

Thursday, August 05, 2004

Sara will be home soon. Damon's counter is rather helpful. Only 11 more days left. :D Yay!

Over the weekend, our poor dinky car was hit, while it was parked in the parking lot of Big Lots! The man was nice enough to have the Big Lots! employee intercom us. Marco's said our car would need some doctoring in the garage for about 30 days. Thus, I was pleasantly chauferred for the past couple of days. Thanks to some enlightenment provided by CheeseMan, we are now renting a car. (Too bad no BMWs, Mercedes, etc etc. to rent :D) A car that runs is fine by me!!

Yesterday was registration day for classes. It was a bitch (a different kind from Helen ;D). Half the classes I wanted to take are full. The other two, I have to take off from work and get my ass over there to see why I can't register. I'm worried that I won't be able to handle 5 classes this quarter. O_O Ahhh.

I will be fine. I'm determined to be fine. Even if I'm not, I'm still gonna say I am. ^_^


What did the sushi say to the bee?
(Damon, shhhhhhhhhhh.:X)

"I Wish For You"
- Jessica Andrews

Time goes by so fast, and days they seem to dance
Into the distance till they're gone
If I had a map, to lead you down life's path
I'd give it to you, But I don't
So go on

Cry hard, Laugh Loud
Be humble, Stand Proud
And don't be afraid of your fears
Let love break your heart
Just be who you are
All of this
All that there is
I wish for you

You can never know which way your world will turn
How the stars are gonna fall
Salty tears they burn
There are lessons you will learn
But you'll be stronger for it all
Oh, yes you will

Cry hard, Laugh Loud
Be humble, Stand Proud
And don't be afraid of your fears
Let love break your heart
Just be who you are
All of this
All that there is
I wish for you

Cry hard, Laugh Loud
Be humble, Stand Proud
Hold onto your faith with all your heart
Be careful, Be brave
Be still, but don't stay
In any one place for too long
Remember God's grace
Give more than you take
All of this
All that there is
I wish for you

In response to my "BITCH" post....from Helen.
(Angela use to take care of our referral stuff.)

Helen: Hello, APO IPA. How may I help you?
Person: Hiiiii. How are yoooou? (in a rather low, sexy voice)
Helen: I'm good. And you?
Person: Do you know who this is?
Helen: Bitttccccchhhhhhh.
Person: Huh?
Helen: Uh....ummm.... Angela?
Person: Yess. I thought you forgot.
Helen: Sorrrry, I thought you were Hollie.

From Helen..."We have to stop doing this. We're gonna get in trouble." [laughing]
Yes, I think we should. We should limit it to private calls only. :D

Talk about mood change on my part.

This person who I thought was a nice person, proved over this weekend that he might not be. =(

The more I think about it, the more it upsets me. I hope I'm wrong.
I need do some smile therapy. ExCUSE me.

Frick. Frick. Frick. And Frick. mas more we go.

The Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next.


Amazing Love

I'm forgivin because you were forsaken,
I'm accepted, you were condemed
I'm alive and well, your spirit is within me
because You died and rose again

Amazing love, how can it be
That you, my King would die for me?
Amazing love, I know its true
its my joy to honor You
In all I do, I honor You

You are my King
Jesus, You are my King
You are my King


I feel a wee bit better.

Oh Oh...forgot to add this on here. Heard this in Helen's car today. I love Nat King Cole!!

Nat King Cole

When I fall in love it will be forever
Or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
Love is ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun

When I give my heart it will be completely
Or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.

I had THE most embarassing DinoBag experience. EVER. At work no less! All I can say is that it involves DinoBag, a chair, and a Viking Office Supplies Sale magazine, and a call to my Ma. Guess what the magazine was for?

May I add another....

So far I've managed to avoid Dr.Lam all of Thursday & Friday. >:D (Am so good.)
As for today, well, let's just see how it goes. Crap. Heehee.

I tend to hide from the source of embarassment or humiliation. Have yet to overcome that.

Oh man, oh man, oh man.

To Shelby: Frick. Another CRAAAAAP. O_O
