micaturtle: (Importants!)
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?
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.

BLAH BLAH BLAH under cut )

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.

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

micaturtle: (Grumpy)
Gah. I am tired. I was woken up at 5:45AM by my upstairs neighbor today :p He was playing the drums or his music really loud or something. :p I went upstairs and knocked loudly on his door a bunch of times. He turned the music or whatever down a little, but didn't answer. I was ticked and grumpy so I knocked louder. Finally he says without coming to the door "Too loud?"
"I'm your downstairs neighbor and you woke me up." I told him grumpily. He said he was sorry but still didn't come to the door. Dork. :p I went back to mine and Jenn's apartment.
Of course I couldn't get back to sleep after that. *grumps* It makes me mad that he was that inconsiderate. It'd be different if it had been on a weekend night. :p
Jenn([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) thinks that I should have called the building manager about the noise, but I didn't want to for 2 reasons. 1) By the time they would have gotten there, he may have stopped making so much noise and then I would feel like a tool. and 2) The only place where I could really hear the noise was in our bedroom, and I didn't want to have a stranger coming into our bedroom while Jenn was asleep.
Jenn is afraid that I might get some psycho that will take it personally that I tell them to shut up during quiet hours and end up with someone with a vendetta against me. I can see that this might be a legitimate concern. However, I personally, would rather have someone come tell me themselves that I was being too loud than have someone call the management on me. What do you all think?

Ok, Jenn wanted me to write this up, so here I go.

((this isn't proofread, so forgive any glaring errors, please))What? Wiccans are rude? )
micaturtle: (ARGH)
Why do houseflies automatically DISAPPEAR as soon you actually pick up the flyswatter, only reappear the SECOND you put it down?

ARGH. A question for the philosophers, I tell you.
micaturtle: (ARGH)
FUCK YOU Wells fargo and your overdraft charges! Spending a total of $29.62 over what I have DOES NOT give you fuckers permission to charge me $500 in overdraft charges!!! And HOW MANY TIMES do I have to tell you that Midamerican Energy is NOT ALLOWED to take money out of my account!?! I *KNOW* I've told you AT LEAST twice! ARGH! *smacks the bank around* Asshats! Coming home to an account balance of -$586.16 does NOT a happy Mica make! *grumbles*
micaturtle: (ARGH)
Ok, Jenn and I made reservations on last Thursday night for a flight home from Salt Lake City to Omaha, and accidentally made them for March 12th instead of April 26th because of United's annoying-to-use website. The tickets cost around $130 each, and the ticket change fee is an OUTRAGEOUS $150 per ticket. Thus, we are screwed. It is SO bullshit. I called and talked to several indian service reps who could barely speak english, and got nowhere. So, basically, we are out around $300. *sai* ... NE1 have any ideas what we should do?

Barring that, anyone need Airline tickets from Salt Lake City to Omaha in a week or so??

Ok, a little clarification to this post yesterday. Bandanas is an OKAY descriptor for what the turtles wear (tho it makes me think of more of a du-rag type thing.) but eyemask is just SUCH a better word for it! :P

THESE are annoying descriptors in my book:
1. Headbands (Brings to mind a valley girl turtle, complete with 80s bangs.. ack! scary!)
2. Kerchiefs (Little old Lady Mutant Ninja Turtles?)
3. Scarfs! (Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] moronqueen I forgot this one!)

Also, these are only acceptable VERY sparingly (or if the story is from a POV of someone who doesn't know the turtles' names yet)
a. {color}-banded
b. {color}-wearing
c. {color}-loving
d. {color}-clad

If you want to use bandana, that is your prerogative, and it is acceptable. I just prefer eyemask because it paints a better picture in my mind.

PS. Please call them mask tails or bandana tails. I don't remember what scary descriptor word I saw the other day, but it made mica very sad. Now I rememeber what it was! Someone called them TASSELS! ARGH! NINJA TURTLES ARE NOT SHRINERS!!
micaturtle: (Grumpy)
it's not a bandanna, it's not a kerchief, it's NOT a headband

IT'S AN EYEMASK FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

.. or a mask. JEEZ LOUISE PEOPLE! ARGH!

Dear Cat,

Dear Annoying Cat,
I realize you love me and all that. And I realize that it is in your nature to do so, since you are a cat. However, MY TOES ARE NOT CHEW TOYS! Especially at 3 AM!!! Please file this into your memory bank under "Very Important Facts".

Thank you,
~Mica

Just because I've sensed so much anamosity from the ninja turtle fan community towards poor cody, I have to ask this question:[Poll #990925]I mean, jeez, give the poor little fanboy a break. I do wonder about WHAT they were thinking when they created him tho. They already knew a lot of fans hated Carter, and they made him simular to him... weirdos. Maybe they were TRYING to create a char for people not to like... Sad thing is, I like him! He's not that bad. And there could be a LOT more annoying sidekicks. :p
