|My boss' son wouldn't get on the plane with them on Christmas Eve Day, cause he sat in front of CNN and FOX News Monday and got scared that a terrorist would hijack the plane. He is 14 and it could just be for attention, but really shame on the media.

I can believe that God claims me as a beloved child. I can believe that my days are in
God's strong and tender hands. I can believe that life is good, beautiful, and eternal.

Last night I came home at 10:30 PM. There was only one car parked in our lot, the rest were parked next to it in the office building lot. I thought "Maybe my landlord is planning to plough the lot or something and asked those who were home to move their cars. I'll just park over here by them too."
Damn, was I wrong.
I walked to school this morning at 9:00 AM (I have a report from Chels that my car was there at that time). I came home this evening at 6:00 PM and remembered that I needed salsa for my blackbean/nacho wrap thing I make and I went to drive to the store in my car but - WTF its not there. And the lot is not ploughed and the other cars are in their right places.
So open up the phone book and call around, Hills - not there, Police - didn't do any towing today, (Maybe Dad took it to change the oil) Dad - "You better find where your car is, I'm going to call [partner in laywer firm that owns the building that towed your car]!" Southside - yep there, but can't release until office hours tommorrow. Called Dad back to let him know I found out where it was. He was upset that I couldn't get it until tommorrow and did a little more calling (police, the other partner, my landlord, southside...)
That is one good thing about my Dad he will stand up for me. I am way too passive to try and get things like having someone open the tow lot at 7:00 PM (even though he was unsuccessful). Any time I am wronged by a someone he's got my back.
So, now I am just way embarassed and feel really stupid that I thought I was SUPPOSED to park where my car would get towed. I did my cry thing cause no one was home to comfort me and watched the movie my secret santa sent me. It was Amelie and a welcomed upper to the current situation.
I am worried about him, he is an only child and now both of his parents are gone. I think this is going to be a hard Christmas for him. He is such a jokester, it is hard to imagine him in such sorrow.
i should be studying before my database final but what better than blogging!
Raba and her fiancé were driving late one summer evening in his Toyota RAV 4 when they were attacked by a band of men engaged in a popular and profitable postoccupation occupation: carjacking. As they were violently booting the fiancé from the car, one of the men decided that Raba would make a nice addition to the evening's spoils. But as he was attempting to rape her in the back seat, the intrepid--more furious than afraid, she says--Raba pulled open the door handle and flung herself from the speeding car. The next day, her fiancé and her brother went to the police station to report the stolen car. They didn't file anything regarding the attempted rape, since, as she says, neither they nor the cops were interested.
so, i got a ride to work from my friend trevor and left a frantic message on my mom's cell begging her to pick me up and float me a loan to pay to get it off my car. being at work yesterday was less than desirable as it was the reason i had to drive to school all semester long - otherwise i would have walked. in the end everything worked out, but i wanted to crawl under a rock for a while.
plan for next semester: BUY A PARKING PERMIT
*for those that don't know a boot is put on your car tire and then you can't drive it.
i am also working on the new homepage for online learning here at bemidji state and i am having major problems trying to get tabbed navigation to float right with a banner to the left in css. i'm about ready to scrap the tabs and use tables (the horror).
tabbed navigation, breadcrumbs...yea!
and more on it
and finally a little success in IE
i think i could handle things better if i knew - one way or another.
if i'm ever going to get over you, i need to be mad at you for a little while. i have to go from the extreme of loving and obsessing over you to the extreme of being really mad and bitter at you. hopefully after this comes friendship and normal relations.
my heart doesn't hurt so much anymore. i don't feel like i'm going crazy anymore. i've made a concious decision to stop putting myself through that.
a song playing on the cd player at work stopped me dead in my sweeping duty - it was about a girl who waited too long for nothing.
and you don't read this anymore, so i can post this here and it won't matter.
