The 1st Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie! XD What? It's about family, and isn't that REALLY what the holidays are all about?? ;)

... you're just lucky I didn't answer "We Wish You A Turtle Christmas"! WRAP RAP! XD

.... yes I did this entry just to enter for the $50 amazon gift card ;)

Well, I *THINK* the phone interview that I did last Thursday went okay. They said they should get back to me within 5 to 10 business days, so I'm crossing my fingers hopefully! I should know if I got the job (or at least a second interview) by December 22nd at the latest. Yayness! :)

In other news, I spent Sunday night/Monday morning in the Emergency Room at Sanford. Eeps!
At about 10:50pm or so on Sunday night, I was laying in bed watching TV after Jenn had fallen asleep and I got a pain in my stomach, which I mistook for just an upset stomach (I have trouble telling the difference between severe pain and nausea). I went upstairs and took some pepto-bismol and ran a warm bath (two things that usually tend to soothe my tummy) While I was in the tub, the nausea hit full force. I pulled myself over to the toilet and threw up. Up to this point, the experience was something that I had experienced many times in the last 2 years or so. Usually after throwing up or sitting in the tub for a while I feel well enough to go to sleep and I feel better in the morning.
However, after that point, things took a disturbingly scary turn. I found myself in so much pain after throwing up that I was crying (I don't cry very often) I was laying on the bathroom floor, crying, naked and wet. (and if Jenn had been not asleep w earplugs in, I would have yelled to her for help) Thankfully, the pain seemed to come in waves (although I was in too much pain to realize that until much later, when I was in the ER) During one of the lesser parts of the pain, I was able to pull my clothes on so that my dad didn't see me naked when I left the bathroom and went down to Jenn & my bedroom.
I pulled myself into bed as another high point of pain hit me, and contemplated waking Jenn up. Seriously, I wasn't going to wake her up (It seems to be murphy's law or something, but whenever I start complaining about this type of pain, it seems to go away and I end up feeling like a drama queen/idiot/hypochondriac) However, I remembered that women many times have this chest pain and nausea as symptoms of a heart attack. I didn't want to die of a heart attack, so I shook Jenn awake and said "I think I'm having a heart attack!" (I know, what a TERRIBLE way to wake someone up! Yikes!)
Jenn didn't know what to do (I don't blame her, she was sleep-addled, and had taken her Seroquel (her sleepy-time med)) so I went upstairs and told my dad I thought I was having a heart attack. He gave me some aspirin and then called 911. The fire engine and an ambulance came and evaluated me. They wanted to take me to the hospital, but I wasn't sure if my insurance covered the ambulance, so I declined. As soon as they left, Jenn, my dad, and I got into my dad's van and headed to the Sanford emergency room. My dad drove like a race-car driver to get there. It's good it was late at night, so there was hardly any traffic.
We got to the Emergency Room and we got a room right away. They put a bunch of wires on me and did a bunch of tests (can't remember what they were what right now) and took my blood. They figured out that it WASN'T my heart and I wasn't having a heart attack, thank god.
I writhed around in pain for about 3+ hours while they tried different pain meds to see if they would help me (at least that's what I *THINK* the reason was why I was in pain so long) in the meantime, they gave me an ultrasound of my gall bladder and noticed that I had/have a lot of stones in it.
I am unclear on what happened in the time I was in the emergency room. I guess my brain was too addled with pain to pay attention to secondary functions like recording memories. I know that I'm missing a lot of things in my mental replay because I'll say something like "I wish they would have said definitively that it was gall bladder problems" and Jenn will tell me "Ummm... they did, Marne. Like 3 or 4 times." ACK.
They finally got my pain under control and got me discharged at about 3:30am, and they recommended that I just call the surgery doctor in the morning and get the surgery for the removal of my gall bladder scheduled.

I tell you what, if I had known what a PAIN IN THE ASS it would be to schedule my gall bladder surgery, I would have just stayed in the emergency room until they gave me my surgery (another example of my memory not working; Jenn says they gave me that option and I turned it down. I have NO recollection of this)
I called Dr. Tschetter's office (the surgeon who was supposedly on call the night that I came in, even though I NEVER saw him. I only saw Dr. Vankeulen.) and they couldn't schedule my surgery until either December 23rd or January 9th, Neither of these would work, because in case you hadn't heard, Jennifer is having a hysterectomy on December 23rd, and it would be very bad for us to BOTH be laid up at the same time. (it's something I want to avoid at all costs)
Plus the fact that since the attack, my gall bladder seems to protest a little whenever I eat anything. And I HAVE been sticking to a bland diet like they want me to. However, I am afraid of another attack, and I don't want to wait until next month to get the damned little offending organ removed out of me.
Anyway, thankfully I have a sister who is a surgical nurse who works at the hospital. She poked around a bit and got me in for a consultation with one of the other surgeons, Dr. Sorrell, for 11:30AM this Thursday, the 15th. She told me to fast from midnight the day before because they'd probably do the surgery that day. I was relieved.
However, after I went to the trouble and got that all set up, the hospital calls me back and says they want me to see the doctor that I "saw" in the ER, Dr. Tschetter, because then he will know what is going on with my case. I tried to explain to them that I never even SAW him, but they said I had to go see him. Somehow a magical consultation opened up with Dr. Tschetter on Friday at 11AM. *sai*
I am still going to fast the day of my appointment and hope that I get the surgery that day. I don't know if I will or not. I'm going to talk to my sister about it tonight at supper.

I've decided *this* about the appointment/consult on Friday. If they tell me that they think it's something other than my gall bladder, and THAT'S why they don't wanna do the surgery, then fine. I will work with that. HOWEVER, if they tell me it's my gall bladder, but they don't schedule my surgery for later that day, then I will be pissed. I will leave the doctors office and go have Long John Silvers for lunch and if that doesn't trigger an attack, then I am having Burger King for supper! :P Then when I go to the ER, I'm going to stay there until they remove the damn thing!!

I tell you my gall bladder has a TERRIBLE sense of timing. It doesn't need to be pulling these shenanigans right before the end of the year and right before Jenn's surgery! I guess my body says "Hey! No fair! If Jenn gets to have surgeries we do too!!" ;}
micaturtle: (Oh My)
I can't keep WAITING to succeed. I keep waiting to make more sales/income/profit at my current job so that I can justify asking for a raise. ($250 a week BEFORE taxes is just NOT a living wage, especially for a full-time job *sai*)

So I applied for a Citibank customer service job last night (no sales), and I got a call back surprisingly quick. They just called me and set up a phone interview for today at 5:20PM. Eeks! Scary!

I should make a list of why getting a new job scares me.
+ Quitting/giving up too soon?
+ wasting time listing the last few months?
+ Love my current job. :\


There are a million reasons why moving from my current job scares me, Maybe I will list them later, but right now even STARTING that list is giving me anxiety headaches, and I don't need to have that stressed mindset when I'm doing my phone interview in a few hours.

I guess the main reason I want to move from my current job is the money issue. I'm 31 years old now. I want to be able to afford to move out of my dad's basement and get my own house. The thing that bothers me the most is that I feel kinda like a liar. I've always said that money doesn't matter as long as you love your job ... However, when it's not even a living wage (technically I make less than minimum wage right now) it just can't happen. It sucks because I HIGHLY enjoy my job that I have right now, and I'm very good at it. But there are months when I actually COST the company money to employ me (in other words, the profit I generate is less than the money it costs to pay me for that month) and the months I *DO* make enough, I only make a few hundred dollars at most over my salary costs. :[

Hell, maybe I'm worrying for nothing. Maybe I'll totally bomb this interview tonight, or maybe citibank will say "no way I want that crazy working here again!" I guess I will just wait and see.

I will write another entry tomorrow (hopefully) detailing why I'm afraid to leave my current job and with more info and thoughts about this. I will also tell you all how the interview went (although I doubt if they'll confirm the job yes or no over the phone, we shall see.)

*beats on LJ to make it work better*

Halloween really snuck up on me this year! I usually spend all month anticipating it, but this year it was like "What? Halloween is next monday?" How the heck did THAT happen?? O_O

Anyways, here's a trick or treat meme I nicked from [livejournal.com profile] aloneindarknes7:

"In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I'm inviting trick-or-treaters to my 'door.' Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics, a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!"

I had a bully in middle school named Spencer H. (last name omitted for anonymity sake) he was a real jerk. I don't wanna get into what he did because it's painful reliving those memories. Looking back at it, I *KNOW* that the only reason he harrassed me was because he knew he could get a reaction out of me. I also know that the bullying stopped (or at least diminished considerably) when I decided to take the attitude that "it doesn't matter what others think of me or say about me, that is THIER problem, not mine." Sadly, I know that even if I went back in time and told myself this and that believing it would save me a lot of heartache and suicide attempts, I know that I would not have believed it. *sai* Some things are just best learned by experience I guess.

Well, as Jenn says here, Jennifer and I have been on a 10-day detox thingy called "Ultra Clear Plus" since wednesday of last week. We decided to do it because Jenn wants to make sure it's not her diet that is causing her goiter and the nodules in her thyroid. Jenn also gets occasional stabbing pain in the area of her liver, and this is supposed to be an excellent liver detoxifying regiment.

We decided to augment the regiment a little bit because Jenn was absolutely exhausted and getting light-headed and feeling like she was going to pass out even when we had eliminated just sugars, meats, dairy, eggs, and gluten. Dropping down to the extremely limited diet of days 5-7 was going to be WAY too much for Jennifer, in both of our opinions. So we decided to just do days 5-7 with fruits and vegetables only.

We originally were going to go on the Rakowski cleanse, which is a MUCH more restrictive detox program (you're only allowed to eat 1 type of green vegetable a day, and nothing else except that, water, and the "medical food" they provide) The reason we were going to try it is because my dad (who is extremely overweight and has COPD) was prescribed it by his heart doctor, and he had very good results with it, feeling much more energized by it. However, when we went to talk to the doctor to get the "medical food", the guy we got it from recommended that we do this less restrictive detox instead, because they only use the Rakowski cleanse for their most extreme cases.

The problem is, this detox is kicking my ass. :P I'm tired and achy and hungry. *pouts, all whiny-faced* I think the worst thing for me is giving up sugar & caffeine. Jenn doesn't drink much caffeine, but I like to have my 1-liter of Dr. Pepper a day (I know it seems like a lot, but a lot of people drink coffee, I prefer Dr. Pepper) Also, I *LOVE* sugar. I have a hell of a sweet tooth, and I know it.

I have insanely intense headaches, extreme fatigue, stomach ache, loose stools, and body aches with this detox. Has anyone else out there on my f-list done a cleanse/detox? Did you have similar side effects? Which one did you try and what were your results?

I know I should finish and post this meme first, but I'm a meme!sheep. (plus, [livejournal.com profile] jem0000000 egged me into it!) I do have like 5.5 of the 7 question sets from that mystery characters meme that I linked to completed though, so I will try to finish it up and get it posted.

---

NOTE: This meme has been heavily edited so I *THINK* it makes a little more sense

ASK A CHARACTER A QUESTION MEME!formally known as: Character Questions Meme)

1. Choose a character from any fandom that I know (even if it's one of my OCs). My *MAIN* fandoms are Ninja Turtles and Kino No Tabi, but I'm not going to limit your fandom/character choices, though. However, if I do not know the character, I may ask you for another choice.

2. Go here and generate 10 random numbers between 1 and 100.

3. Comment with the character and the numbers, and then I will answer the corresponding questions from this list here AS THE CHARACTER! YAYNESS! XD (I will prolly make a new post answering the questions for each character I get)

Feel free to pick a character that someone else already asked about, as the questions will most likely be different this time around.

--

Also, I don't really care if you randomize the question #s or pick them deliberately - it's a long list, so you'll probably save time randomizing, but if you want to know specific answers, go for it!

You can ask about more than one character, but please do a separate comment & number list for each character.

"Forced" to do it by [livejournal.com profile] evilsherbear - modified by me, cuz I'm evil that way (italics is text that I added):

The first five people to comment in this post saying "MIKEY IS BETTER THAN RAPH" get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing draw them a picture of something!. In return, they have to post this I would REALLY like it if they would post this or a similar meme (although that is optional) in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

---

I will draw to the best of my ability! Even Original Characters! :D I can't promise the drawings will be in color, since I don't computer color well, but we will see :D

I'm doing this to get my drawing juices flowing. :] And also to have some NEWER art to fill up my DA Account. I drew zombie Mikey last night and I enjoyed it, but I'm not sure what else to draw. I might ask for more takers if the 1st 5 drawings work out well.
micaturtle: (ARGH)
NOTE: this entry has NOT been edited, but MAY be edited later tonight, after I talk with Jenn. It is also friends-locked.
NEW NOTE: This STILL hasn't been edited, so it may jump a bit around a little bit in thought patterns. However, I updated the date, added tags, and also un-friends-locked it.

Under the cut, I ramble about changes at work, and why I fear moving to a new town.

DEAR JORDAN,

Michaelangelo is superior to Raphael in every way. Except in emoness. For that, Raph is the King. (and Leo, for some reason, is the queen) Otherwise, MIKEY IS THE BESTEST NINJA TURTLE!!

That is all. XP

LOVE TRUTHFULLY YOURS, MICA
micaturtle: (Oh My)
DEAR JORDAN-NESS;

I am a copycat! XD hee hee. But I does it BETTER! ;p (well more wordy at least, not sure if better)

How is your trip to Costa Rica going? Have you found Leonardo yet? If you find him, please put him in a box with air holes and ship him back to NYC, I'm sure his brothers miss him. (This is after you tackle-hug him and take pictures of him in compromising positions, which, of course, we all know you will do.) I'm sure by the time he arrives home in his box his eardrums will have healed from your squeals. Make sure you include some pizza and cheese doodles in his box so he doesn't starve to death. (If you deem him good enough, you can include some tea and apples as well)

Also, I know that you are assimilating the local culture and language there, as a good evil operative does. I think that once you start becoming bi-lingual, you need to start posting LJ entries in Spanish. If you choose to berate random people and talk about how you are planning to assassinate George Bush Jr. in those entries, well then all the more power to you. I approve of these actions.

Finally, I know you are prolly missing the crud outta your little ball(s?) of wrinkly puppy puggy gooshiness, so I give you something after the cut )

LOVE IN ANTICIPATION OF YOUR VALUED RESPONSE, MICA

Blah. I've been feeling really out-of-sort lately. (like this whole last week or so) It's a strange feeling... Whenever I try to read fanfic (something I usually enjoy doing immensely) I get distracted and just don't feel like reading it. :\ I'm not sure what it is... burnout of some sort maybe? (Even though I don't know WHY I'd be burned out, I haven't been reading any more or any different types of fanfic than I usually read.) I've also been feeling that way about my job, like I just don't wanna do it, and also about a lot of other things in my life. *sai* I hope it's just a temporary thing and I can snap out of it. :P

Thankfully, TODAY the "funk cloud" I've been moping around in seems to have lifted a bit. (Again, not sure why, but it's appreciated.) So at least I've felt motivated enough to write this LJ entry. So that's good I guess.

Jenn, Mandy Anne, & I are going to Convergence, a sci-fi convention in Minneapolis, this weekend. :D It's going to be fun (I'm starting to get excited about it, but like I said it's hard with the funk I'm in lately. Which is strange because usually I'm MEGAexcited about cons.)

Jenn, Mandy Anne, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen, & I are going to do the sexy turtles cosplay again on Saturday XD It's going to be a lot of fun, I hope. I think it will be better this time because since the Con isn't as huge as NYCC, we can stay together as a group more. (It's *TOTALLY* a costume that needs to be done as a group.)

I'm thinking of pulling out my red Loli dress (or maybe my purple one) and just going as a normal lolita on Friday. Hmmm....

Ooooh! A three part post!! On things COMPLETELY unrelated to each other!

Part 1
Piss off, Kia. My Kia Rio has an ANNOYING "feature" where if you lock the doors using the keyless thingy, and then use the key to open the trunk, the car alarm goes off. WTF?? Argh. Because EVERYONE knows that if you someone is using the keys to open the trunk of a locked car, THEY MUST BE A CAR THIEF!! Argh.

Okay, I thought maybe it was an overlooked little thing, BUT NO. THEY TALK ABOUT IT IN THE USER MANUAL! SEE?



JEEZ! In the stages of planning/designing this, I think the conversation went like this:
Engineer 1 - Oops! The alarm goes off when you open the trunk! Crap, I don't wanna have to fix that!
Engineer 2 - Ah, don't sweat it dude. We'll just stick a little blurb in the user's manual and tell everyone it's a "feature".
Engineer 1 - Awesome! Then we can go smoke a bowl! Plus, everyone knows that anyone trying to get into the trunk of a locked car is up to no good anyway. No way that they would be someone with their hands full of things to put into said trunk.
Engineer 2 - Exactly! What was that you said about smoking a bowl? I was going to design a button to open the trunk onto the remote start and fix the front fog lights so they stopped falling off whenever you looked at them funny, but your plan sounds a lot more fun!

There, writing that little thingy amused me and now I'm not as annoyed at being embarrassed by the Mikey Mobile making a racket when I tried to put something in the trunk this afternoon.

---
Part 2
http://mercatus.org/freedom-50-states-2011

WTF?? South Dakota is the second "free-est" state?? SOUTH DAKOTA??? Whatever! They must have somehow overlooked the fact that we've tried to OUTLAW abortion like 3 times, and that we've tried to get something passed to outlaw gay marriage? *facepalm*

---
Part 3
I KNOW that everyone's got this lil Turtle pet thingy, but I wanted to make one :D

snitched frum [livejournal.com profile] geaven, modified by MEEEE

Comment and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character or person that most reminds me of you. or if I can't think of a fictional character that reminds me of you, I'll post a random picture that I think of when I think you you! Then post the same in your journal. Reposting is optional, although it'd be nice if you did so I can go to your journal and annoy you for a Michaelangelo picture (oh come on, you know that if/when I do this meme, I'm gunna get a bunch of Mikey piccys ... not that I mind ;)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] jem0000000, adapted by me:

The problem with Livejournal is that we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other. Hence, I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you. This last part is optional. You only have to repost if you want to. ;P
micaturtle: (Video games)
Wow... lots to update, but I'm lazy. :p

A) I had a BLAST in california with [livejournal.com profile] cynlee, [livejournal.com profile] hamatokameko, [livejournal.com profile] brinatello and Christine. However, I have pics for that, so hopefully I will post those later :D


B) Jenn's dad is prolly going to get heart surgery, so Jenn is leaving tomorrow (May 5th) and will be in Utah for THREE WEEKS! D: I am going to miss her SO much!! :(


C) Osama Bin Ladin is DEAD! O_O This quote from Mark Twain sums up my feelings on that quite eloquently "I have never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure." (quote stolen from [livejournal.com profile] neuronautica) hee hee. I hope this clears up all the annoying "birther" nonsense about our president. I SO want Obama to tell the public "Oh, sorry I couldn't get a copy of my birth certificate to you quicker, I was kinda busy tracking down and killing Osama Bin Laden. But next time I'm working on a important matter of national security which my predecessor ignored and you want to quibble with me over schematic details, I'll get right on that." I know he won't, but it would still be EPIC. ;D


D) Jenn & I picked up her xbox while we were in Utah. XD Feel free to add me if you feel so inclined! My Gamertag is "MicaTurtle" :D (Jenn's is "Soliloquy79") Does anyone on my Flist have an xbox? Nyar?
I've been having fun playing some games on the xbox. However, I'm wondering a few things:
1) Is there any cheaper way to buy/earn/get "Microsoft Points"? If you buy thru your xbox, it ends up being like $21.19 for 1600 points (which is roughly 1.4 cents per point, and since a rockband song "costs" 160 points, it's kinda a ripoff :p If I buy the prepaid cards is it a better deal?
2) Does anyone here have an xbox gold membership? Is it worth the price?
3) Does anyone know of any good free downloadable games on the xbox marketplace? Also, is there some secret way to sort by price?
micaturtle: (Default)
Stoopid Spam bots! MY LIVEJOURNAL IS NOT YOUR PLAYGROUND! Argh. I seem to be getting a ton of spam comments lately (they especailly seem to be targeting This entry for some reason.) :p Most of the spam is about cheap "sowtware" (misspelling of software)

Stuff about my upcoming utah trip and mikey commission piccy I bought for Jenn under cut )

PS. Also, just because I haven't said anything about this post doesn't mean I'm not upset about it. I just haven't had time to write anything up about it. (I wrote the majority of the above post yesterday)
micaturtle: (Default)
I don't know if any of you have read [livejournal.com profile] geaven's "RAPHAEL: The Owner’s Guide and Maintenance Manual", but I added 4 FAQs to it (at the bottom). Clicky here to go read the awesome ficcage

hee hee. I enjoyed writing them so much (esp the one about Raph's eye. That poor turtle can't seem to keep his eyes intact! ;) and now I NEEDZ to write more FAQs for the TMNT. I am enjoying myself WAY too much. ;D

I will update ya'll when I write more :D

((NOTE: I *AM* watching the comments on Geaven's entry, so if you leave a review on there, I *WILL* see it, no worries ;))

I am sorry about the entry I posted yesterday. Many of you were right in your comments that I should keep the stories I told off a public forum. Thus, I have set the entry so it is viewable to me only. Many of you had very good points and things I wanted to reply to in your comments. However, doing so would be just prolonging drama.

Looking at the entry now with a new day's fresh eyes, I can see that it was rather petty and I was throwing a tantrum because I was hurt. I appreciate that I have a f-list that can tell me when I am wrong. Thank you all.

As for my friendship with the person in question, I think it's better that we just remain acquaintances. We are both good people, but we tend to bring out the worst in each other, so it's better this way.

The wound is just too fresh right now and I don't want to get into it. So, like the Mikey-type I am, I will ignore it and do nothing right now. Hopefully time will heal this wound again.

FYI: Just for those who don't know, yesterday's entry was an entry about a ex-friend of mine who kept her wedding a secret from me, and I delved into some hurtful territory of how she had wronged me and it came off very attacky.
