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?

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)

Strongbad has been SERIOUS distraction this week. I've kinda hiatused(?) myself from facebook these past few weeks. It just started seeming like too much of a job. :p phhhht to that. I'll prolly go back to reading it in a little while. I'm just not feeling it right now.

Also, I'm home from Salt Lake City. It was a whirlwind of a trip. Lots of stuff happened.

I'm TRYING to go back and get caught up on my F-list from April 13th thru the 18th (trying = opening up the page, but getting distracted by watching StrongBad emails) so if any of you have any entries you'd REALLY like me to see from that time (ESPECIALLY if they are TMNT fics) feel free to comment or note me and I'll read your entry :D

Meanwhile, I have more information on NYC Comic Con!

If you are Robina, Jem, Jordan, Claire, Jennifer, or just interested/nosy, click here )
micaturtle: (Poke with a Sword?)
Wow... 3 entries in 3 days. I know I don't usually do that. However, I started reporting on this drama, I must follow through.

Before I get to the important stuff though. Just a few things. Jenn & I are going to Utah on April 13th thru the 18th. :) Jenn will be getting trigger-point injections before we leave on the 13th. Jenn's parents REALLY want to see her, so they are paying for our airfare out there. It's pretty awesome of them. Just thought I'd note that here. :D

Also, I am going to Sioux City this weekend with my friends to see Avenue Q. It's gonna be fun. Jennifer keeps not wanting to go because she wants to have some time to recover from this stressful week. However, I think she will have fun and also it's not good for her to sit home all alone, so I'm making her come along.

final installment of this drama llama under cut )

Hi all,
I am back from my trip to Utah. I am overwhelmed with stuffs to do, so if you have an LJ entry that you posted between Friday April 17th and Tuesday April 27th that you want me to read, PLEASE TELL ME!! (either via comment here or email or PM) I will not be catching up with my f-list, but I will keep up from today on. If you have an LJ entry where I am mentioned/tagged/etc please tell me and I'll read it. (Even if it's a meme, I like to see stuff about me, because like most humans, I'm ego-centric ;)

Here's about my trip:
Breakdowns, Inlaws, & Vodka, oh my! )
micaturtle: (Big Anime Eyes)
Ok, here's an update:

+ My Kia is still broked :( poor baby. I'm going to look at it and see how hard it will be to repair myself. It's just putting a new side mirror in after all.

+ The blood came out of my pajama pants. Yay! :)

+ Regarding this post about United. I called later that week (I think thursday night) and finally got someone who would help me. They changed our tickets to the correct date, so that's thankful. Thank God for small miracles. I guess it just took calling several times until I got someone who was willing to help me. (Either that or they got sick of me bugging them)
The scary thing is they still haven't charged the difference in ticket fares to [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy's card yet, so I'm still geared up to kick some ass if they overcharge. That's why i didn't post earlier, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop. However, they HAVE updated the info on united.com, so at least that's good. I will print the tickets from there and then I will have them. Who knows, maybe they reviewed the calls and saw how frustrated I was and decided to be nice and not charge me anything more. (yeah right)
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??
micaturtle: (Shiney Donnie)
I made it to Utah and I'm not dead! I guess my premonition was wrong. Jenn is next to me right now *kisses her* Thank you for all your well wishes and for not thinking me a hypocrite with my last post! See you in a week or so! :D
micaturtle: (Default)
I'm getting packed to go to Utah right now, and I know it's sappy and silly, but I don't feel like I wanna take anything because the only thing I really need is already there... JEN *Hugs and loves on [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy* I know, I'm being very mushy and hypocritical, but that's how I feel. I LOVE MY JENNI!!!

Also, Jenn, I don't know if you are the one who hung my foam 'chucks on my Michaelangelo poster, but if so, you ROCK. I love your style! :D

I know I've talked before about how society makes it seem like the end of the world if you don't pair-bond, and how much I loathe them for it. I STILL believe that you DON'T need a mate to be happy. I love Jenn as much as I could ever love another human being, but if she died, I would have to go on living (although I'd be deeply saddened) I also still believe that you don't NEED to spend a lot of time looking for someone to love (however, if looking makes you happy, go for it) If you find the right person, that's really nice. It doesn't need to be something your life revolves around though. It's NOT the end of the world to end up an old maid.

Look at this silly post tho. I'm just getting off topic. I wanted to have this post so I could gush giddily over how much I adore my girlfriend. (and I'm too nervous to sleep) I LOVE MY JENNIFER!!!! I can't wait to see her and hold her close and love on her and... *rambles on with mush and goo and baby noises of love for about 15 minutes*

That is all, I now end my mushy-gushy post of WRUVVV and return you to your regularly scheduled f-list... well wait. I just wanted to add this...

I am VERY nervous about my flight tomorrow. I dreamt that I died in a plane crash a few nights ago, and I'm kinda freaked out about it. If it happens, I want to come back and make a post-mortum LJ post that says "I TOLD YA'LL SO!" ;)...

That is all. (4 real this time)
micaturtle: (ARGH)
WTF? I go to check in today, and Damn United is now charging $15 for the 1st checked bag!! *grumbles* I'm gunna try to fit everything into my smaller suitcase and just do carry-on. Damn freekin airline :p

NEwayz, I am leaving tomorrow morning for my week-long trip to Utah to visit [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy (Jenn) I may not see entrys from my f-list, so if there's anything you REALLY want me to know, Email Me

We are starting our drive back on Sept 25th, and should be home sometime late the 26th. It's gunna be fun.

Also, since everyone else is doing it and I need to install this camera for work anyway, here's ME!!

Meme rules:
Post a photo of you right now.
Don't change your clothes or fix your hair
Post these instructions.

Damn that photo is dark... :p I am SO glad for this vacation coming up! I need it!
micaturtle: (Raph Smash)
Ok, work SUCKS today.

1. My computer is going all wonky and shutting off randomly. I think the power supply is on it's last legs. Sadly, it does it intermittently, so it's really hard to trouble-shoot. (I want to type that's its been behaving for a few hours, but I keep thinking I'm going to jinx it and it will shut down again.) I think it's the power supply. Like I said, it's almost impossible to troubleshoot.

2. The big postage change that USPS threatened us with back in May has come to fruition. ARGH. They have changed it so only people with a permit can use bound printed matter mail. Now I am going to be making LESS profit for my work. (because of higher postage costs) Also, I am going to have to re-invent & re-learn my entire postage printing process, and get endicia canceled. DANGNABBIT!

But, I guess there's a LITTLE bit of good news. I found some fun stuff randomly at work this morning:
+ Mcdonalds Raph (strange, how come you can't squeeze HIS legs together? he just does the arsenio fist pump..)
+ Bo-spinning McDonalds Donatello for [livejournal.com profile] mandy_nyar
+ TMNT nesting dolls (the little plastic ones that came with candy, I always wanted them, but couldn't justify spending $10 on them)

So, I guess there's that good.

I *SO* need a break from this. I am so glad I'm going to Utah to visit [livejournal.com profile] soliloquy on the 20th. We're going to drive back and bring all her stuff back here to south dakota. On the way, we're gonna visit mount rushmore and drive thru the badlands. It will be fun :) (I really miss you, Jenn ♥ )

You know, just typing out all my problems I've had today makes them look a lot smaller and more manageable. This entry was a good stress reliever.
micaturtle: (Default)
Well, Jenn ([livejournal.com profile] soliloquy) is flying home to Utah for a visit starting on thursday night. I am going to miss her terribly.

Here's the big news:

Sometime this next month, I am getting a NEW CAR and then I'm driving out to Salt Lake City and picking up Jenn and her stuff and moving it back here. ... It will certainly be interesting driving 15 hours by myself out there. I hope I don't go completely batshart.

NE1 have any suggestions on what car I should buy? (or NOT buy) I'm looking at a Toyota matrix or a chevy aveo, but I'm open to suggestions.

Also, the BIG thing I hate about selling my old car is giving up my cool bumper sticker!

Does anyone have a sticker like this they are willing to sell or know someone who does?? PLEASSSEEE?

*hugs* to all my buds! ;D
